        ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND (The A. E. Jackson Edition in Original Dust Jacket and Gift Box)

      New York: Doran, 1922. Carroll, Lewis. (Charles L[utwidge] Dodgson). ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND. New York: Doran, [1922]. First American Edition, thus. Sixteen full-page hinged plates by A. E. Jackson plus dozens of other line illustrations, vignettes and devices. Pictorial endpapers. A remarkably Fine copy of this large impressive volume in a remarkably Fine Dust Jacket in a Near Fine original box (just slightly worn). Quite the survival, the temptation to call it "as new" is barely resistible. Doran did a series of these silver boxed gift books c. 1922 as made clear by the other titles listed on the flaps; in 1927 Doran merged with Doubleday and it appears their deluxe gift box concept was forever scrapped. All titles in this series appear to be exceedingly rare, even more so in DJ and this is the only boxed example we could find online. A. E. Jackson (1873-1952) is one of the two dozen or so great Golden Age Alice illustrators. He first produced his Alice in 1914 for London publisher Hodder & Stoughton with mounted plates. Truly as much a visual feast as any of the fine Lewis Carroll editions we have in stock.. Decorative Boards. VERY FINE/Very Fine. Illus. by A. E. Jackson. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

        Les Oraisons Mauvaises".

      1922 - 10 grands dessins originaux à l’encre de Chine, (1922), (19.5 x 17 cm. et 16 x 16 cm) et 7 culs de lampe tête de chapitre (3.5 x 5.5 cm), non signés, montés sous Marie-louise. L'artiste M. SAINT MARTIN, contribua au mouvement Art-déco au début du XXème siècle par son dessin épuré, élégant et sensuel. Il travailla pour des décors et costumes de théâtre et de music-hall et notamment L'Apollo et la Pie Qui Chante ainsi que pour la presse: Panurge (Dico-Solo, Aedis, 2004, p.766). Maquette originale complète et, apparemment, inédite d'une suite de dessins à l'encre de Chine sur le thème des bijoux et d'une ode à la beauté et la féminité inspirée des "Oraisons mauvaises" de Rémy de Gourmont. Les compositions, d’un effet graphique saisissant, jouent sur le contraste entre les motifs géométriques des textiles et la ligne pure des corps nus. Elles ne sont pas sans rappeler les dessins d’André Domin pour les "Fleurs du Mal" (1919) et "Les Litanies de la Rose" de Gourmont (1920) ou ceux de Llano Flores dans "Les Feuillets d'Art". Chacune se rapporte au vers de chaque strophe évoquant le symbolisme et la perversité des pierres précieuses (Et l'opale prisonnière qui se meurt à ton doigt, Et ce douloureux saphir d'amertume et d'effroi, Et l’hyacinthe., Et la Topaze.).

        The Worst Journey in the World. Antarctic 1910-1913.

      London: Constable & Co 1922 - London: Constable & Co. 1922. First edition. Rare first edition of this Antarctic classic, which includes the 10 panoramic collotype plates that do not appear in later editions. 2 volumes, large 8vo, lxiv, 300pp, (4) appendix, 30 ills & 4 maps (&) viii, 301-585pp, 28 ills & 1 map. Recent black half morocco, raised bands and gilt titles, marbled paper boards, new end papers, fore-edges and lower edges uncut to volume 2. This is a first-person account of Scott's last Antarctic Expedition from 1910-13. Hearing of Scott's proposed 2nd expedition, Cherry-Garrard volunteered his services to Dr. Wilson, whom he had met previously. "In an expedition every member of which was a specialist, he was accepted by Scott on Wilson's recommendation alone & duly enlisted as 'assistant zoologist’". Yet from the outset, despite his youth and inexperience, he won the affectionate regard of his more seasoned comrades, and before the close of the expedition had more sledge-journeys to his credit than any other surviving member. Cherry-Garrard was warmly commended by Scott for his efficiency and unselfishness as a sledger and tent-mate. In the comparative comfort of life at base, he edited the South Polar Times. Wilson chose Bowers and Cherry-Garrard “the pick of the sledging element” (Scott) as his companions for a Winter Journey in 1911 to the rookery of the Emperor Penguin at Cape Crozier, an exploit which is still without parallel in the annals of polar exploration. On their return 5 weeks later, Scott described their journey as “the hardest that has ever been made” a phrase which later suggested to Cherry-Garrard the title of his narrative. The book is widely regarded as the most readable of all the Antarctic literature - it has been suggested that the manuscript was heavily edited by George Bernard Shaw, who was a close family friend of the Cherry-Garrards. An increasingly difficult book to find in a first edition. Condition Report Externally Spine – very good condition. Joints – very good condition. Corners – very good condition.

        Hamlet Prince of Denmark

      1922. John Austen's HamletSpecially Bound by Susan AllixA Remarkable and Innovative DesignAUSTEN, John, illustrator. ALLIX, Susan, binder. SHAKESPEARE, William. Hamlet, Prince of Demark. With Decorations by John Austen. London: Selwyn & Blount Ltd, [1922]. One of sixty copies signed by John Austen (this being no. 13) and with an additional title-page. Large quarto (11 5/8 x 9 1/8 inches; 295 x 233 mm.). [i, half-title], [ii, limitation], [iii, additional title] [iv, blank], [1]-175, [1, imprint] pp. Illustrated throughout with striking black & white illustrations including 2 title-pages, half-title, 14 full page, 3 half page, 13 quarter page and 137 vignettes. Original front and rear decorated end-papers bound in.Bound by Susan Allix (completed 2010) in a special designer binding of full black goatskin, front and back covers with several rectangular panels of various other leathers including suede and crocodile. Upper cover with an inset panel containing an abstract red and black painting on a silver background depicting' blood and chaos', set under glass, and a mounted branch-like 'chain of shapes' silver strip. Smooth spine decoratively lettered in blind, sculptured pink liners, hand-made 'abtract design' end-leaves, top edge gilt, others uncut. Original front and rear decorated end-papers bound in with "Binding by Susan Allix / for Denis Collins. / Completed October 2010" written in ink on front free end-paper. Housed in the original black cloth clamshell case, white lettering label on spine. A very fine copy in a unique and wonderful designer binding.Considered by many to be John Austen's (1886-1948) finest piece of book illustration. The style is very much in the vein of Aubrey Beardsley with hints of Harry Clarke and Hans Henning Voight, aka Alastair)."Hamlet is a tragedy; tragedies are dark so the ambience of the binding as it presents itself is dark. Yet it is a play shot through with flashes of light that reveal our situations, ourselves, the sharp arrows of fortune that lead to lines of consequences. This is suggested by the silver piece that I made by reworking silver left from other projects into a chain of shapes. The variations of black leather (the shiny ones with distinct scale patterns are crocodile) may be seen as the formal shifts from one act to another. When the play is read, not acted, the scene-changing can be less dramatic, more meditative. The glass panel represents the action and drama, excitements of reason, blood, and a contrast to the inaction of the black rectangles. The glass, with paint and background colour, has been scratched and sandpapered into some sort of chaos. The intention of the binding is to create an atmosphere, or introduction to the work inside, I did not want to quarrel with, or remake, the illustrations, nor give personal interpretations. And, as for the play, what could I do to that, being a thing (almost) immortal? Perhaps try to suggest that inside, the book is thrillingly serious." (Susan Allix).Susan Allix - frequently cited as 'the greatest bookmaker of her generation' - often creates limited editions from her private press with original prints, letterpress printing and hand-binding. Since establishing her own press she has created a series of fifty works that have been exhibited internationally, featured in the collections of the National Art Library; the V&A; the British Library; The Hague; the Library of Congress; Harvard and the New York Public Library, among others.

      Various, 1900-1922 - 7 rare offprints including the important Spermatogenesis of Normal and Hybrid Pigeons which Guyer wrote to Thomas H. Morgan in 1910 "First I should like to call your attention to the inclosed clipping from an article of mine which appearedin the ZOOLOGICAL BULLETIN, II, 5 for 1899. At a glance you can see that it deals essentially with what we now call the Mendelian phenomena although at that time, of course, Mendelism had not yethad it's renaissance. At the time the article was published I had not figured out the Mendelian ration of 3 to 1, although I was aware that there were more brown than white birds among the grand-decensants. The point I want to make, however, is that in this return to grand-parental types I had a definite problem in mind which I was seeking a solution."* Two of the offprints are Compliments of the Author, with one signed in full. One has the ownership signature of Sewall Wright.The Guyer/Morgan letter can be found in our blog. List of offprints available. Quality, Value, Experience.

      London and New York: William Heinemann LTD and Doubleday, Page & Co., (1922) [1925]. LIMITED DE LUXE EDITION OF ONLY 100 NUMBERED COPIES SIGNED BY BOTH ARTHUR RACKHAM AND CHRISTOPHER MORLEY. This limited edition is also printed on significantly larger paper then the trade issue. With 4 fine colour plates, decorated titlepage and 16 line drawings by Arthur Rackham. 4to, original mottled paper-covered boards with yellow and white label on the upper cover lettered and pictorially decorated in black, backed in gilt ruled black cloth with smaller but otherwise identical paper label, with Rackham illustrated endpapers printed in blue not found on the trade issue. x, 227 pp. Internally a fine, brilliant and spotless copy, the binding very handsome, solid and essentially fine but for some light, unobtrusive rubbing along the edges of the mottled paper primarily caused by shelving. SCARCE DE LUXE EDITION, THE FIRST OF THE TWO LIMITED EDITIONS OF THIS TITLE AND THIS, THE SMALLER OF THE PRINT RUNS SIGNED BY BOTH THE AUTHOR AND ILLUSTRATOR. The limitation to only 100 copies makes this one of the rarest works in the Rackham oeuvre. It is also one of only a very few titles signed by both Rackham and the story's author. In 1925 a second limited edition was issued, that edition was not signed by Morley and was printed in a significantly larger number. A wonderfully imaginative tale from Christopher Morley. Rackham’s colour illustrations are quite unusual and marry perfectly to this splendid story. A highly unusual story in which Mr. Gissing, a gentledog of leisure contentedly residing in Canine Estates with Fuji, his butler (a Japanese pug), on an income of 1,000 bones a year, becomes dissatisfied and leaves home to search for where the blue begins (a purpose to life). "Morley admirably creates a canine world through names alone. There are Mike Terrier, the curate Mr. J. Rover Poodle, the upper-class and working-class neighbors Mrs. Airedale and Mrs. Collie, the nursemaid Mrs. Spaniel and little Shaggy, her puppy, Gissing’s adopted puppies Groups, Bunks, and Yelpers, haughty Mr. and Mrs. Chow and their “intolerably spotless” little Sandy, the landlady Mrs. Purps, the salesclerk Miss Whippet, the matronly Mrs. Mastiff, the compulsive shopper Mrs. Dachshund, the parishioners Mr. Dobermann-Pinscher, Mrs. Griffon, and Mrs. Retriever. There are the place names like Dalmatian Heights and the little shrine of St. Spitz. These are intermixed with humanless real locales like Paris and Atlantic City, Murray Hill and Fifth Avenue and Broadway and Wall Street, Delmonico’s Restaurant and Trinity Church, and real historical personages like the Grimm brothers, Hans Christian Andersen, and Masefield; to make this our real world only inhabited by dogs, rather than some imaginary planet of dogs." - Fred Patten

        TheÂLife of Samuel Johnson

      New York - Gabriel Wells by Doubleday Page and Company 1922 - An attractively-bound copy of Boswell's famous Life of Johnson. With a biographical introduction by Clemence Shorter. Illustrated throughout withÂfiifty-three plates (collated complete). Bound by Whitman Bennett. ÂTemple Bar edition, limited to seven hundred and eighty-five copies, of which this is number 191. ÂIt is regarded as an important stage in the development of the modern genre of biography; many have claimed it as the greatest biography written in English. While Boswell's personal acquaintance with his subject only began in 1763, when Johnson was 54 years old, Boswell covered the entirety of Johnson's life by means of additional research. The biography takes many critical liberties with Johnson's life, as Boswell makes various changes to Johnson's quotations and even censors many comments. Regardless of these actions, modern biographers have found Boswell's biography as an important source of information on Johnson and his times. Complete in ten volumes. Condition: In half-morocco bindings. Externally, smart, with just some slight rubbing to the extremities. Volumes 2 and 8 haveÂslight wear to the head and tailÂof the spine. ÂInternally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean, with just the odd spot. Many pages are unopened. ÂOverall: VERY GOOD INDEED [Attributes: Hard Cover]
