        A Hasty Bunch

      [Paris: Printed in Dijon by Maurice Darantière for Contact Publishing Co.], [1922]. 8vo. 288pp. Original printed French-folded wrappers, uncut and unopened. A beautiful, fresh copy with only a few areas of palest discoloration along the spine. FIRST EDITION, one of approximately 300 copies privately printed of McAlmon's second book (preceded by a collection of poetry) and the first book issued by his own Contact Publishing Co. This copy includes the broadside "From an h'English Printer to an English Publisher" laid-in. The Dijon printer Maurice Darantière printed this shortly before he completed work on Joyce's 'Ulysses.' McAlmon had assisted Joyce in the typing of the manuscript for that novel, reordering some of the material in the Penelope episode due to difficulties in interpreting Joyce's handwriting. Born in the American midwest, McAlmon expatriated to Paris where he was closely allied with Joyce, Stein, Hemingway, Williams, and many other Modernists. His publishing company published Hemingway's first book, Three Stories and Ten Poems, among other highlights of the period. In his memoir, McAlmon recalled that Joyce said these stories reminded him of his own 'Dubliners' and suggested the title 'A Hasty Bunch' "because he found my American use of language racy" (p.33). The gay story "A Boy's Discovery" is among the more sexually explicit.

Orig. wrpps. Small repaired tear to front cover, slight toning. Krakow (Wolff) 1922. Tytus Czy ewski was a Polish painter, Futurist poet, playwright, and Colorist. In 1917, together with the brothers Zbigniew and Andrzej Pronaszko, he organized an exhibition of Polish Expressionist works in Krakow, and their group later became known as the Polish Formists. They merged various aspects of the European avant-garde including Cubism, Futurism, and Expressionism. Until the group's break-up in 1922, Czyzewski was their primary artist and theoretician as well as the joint editor of the journal Formisci. He was also a co-founder of the Polish Futurist clubs and published Futurist-inspired visual poetry. As of December 2017, WorldCat locates six holdings in North America.

        The Wonderful Adventures of Little Prince Toofat

      The James A. McCann Company, New York 1922 - 4to, (10 1/2 x 12 1/8"), blue-grey gilt and pictorial cloth. Each page of text has pale green line illustrations by Lawson. There are pictorial headpieces done in black, decorative initials, pictorial endpapers plus 6 incredibly fanciful color plates that are rich in color and in detail. The rear board is stained with loss of surface sheen; the half-title is hand-colored; there is a neat ownership name on the reverse of the first plate, followed by a lengthy pencil note on apparently an unrelated issue. First edition of an exceedingly scarce children's book, this is a fantasy tale about Little Prince Toofat and Himself who travel to the fairy land of Looking Glass. First serialized in the Delineator and subsequently published as a book, Lawson reportedly was not proud of this magical work which "shows the influence of Arthur Rackham and W. Heath Robinson so evident in Lawson's later illustrations " (Gardner: Robert Lawson on My Shelves p.9). Overall a very good copy of Lawson's first book, his rarest and most elusive. Younger List of 100 Important Children's Books, 1922. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Wheel of Fortune

      Madras: Ganesh & Co, 1922. 8vo (7 x 5 inches). xiii, [2], 160pp. Half-title. One illustration of a spinning wheel, or charka, on p.[156]. Publisher's original Khadar cloth printed in turquoise on the upper and lower boards. A near-fine copy, the binding tight with minor bumping at the extremities and toning of the spine, one small pale stain on front cover. FIRST EDITION, first printing. With an appreciation by Dwijendranath Tagore entitled "Dawn of a New Era": "Let critics of Mahatma Gandhi then look to History before they condemn him for trying to bring this much belauded Modern Civilisation down to the common starting point of all great civilisations. We are at the dawn of a New Era, and Mahatma Gandhi is the one leader who shows us the right path..." This is Gandhi's fourth, and perhaps scarcest, book, published in the year of his arrest, trial, and conviction for sedition (resulting in a six-year prison sentence). Gandhi promotes the spinning wheel - the wheel of the title and illustrated on the cover - as a means to break from British rule. The production of cloth as the path to gain independence is referenced in the very binding of the book, which reads "Clothed in Khadar" on the front and boldly urges readers to "USE KHADAR" on the back: "Mahatma Gandhi writes from the Sabarmati Jail: 'I am indifferent to whatever else the country may do, so long as the cause of the Khadi and the Charka is well looked after. It must be clearly understood that there is no salvation for us until the Khadar programme is completely worked." The Swadeshi movement, backing Nationalist politicians and boycotting foreign cloth, attracted Gandhi and his anti-industrialization cause. Gandhi started spinning his own cloth, encouraged others to do so, and made it obligatory for all members of the Indian National Congress to spin cotton and pay their dues in yarn. "For Gandhi the post-colonial self could not be forged in a clear-cut instant by simply negating the colonizing other: independence, self-determination were not so much ready-made states of being and mind as a self-creating process on the part of the colonized - a struggle to awaken new capabilities and qualities in themselves no less than in the colonizer... Gandhi grounds the search in homespun - the 'rudimentary' mode of textile-making, but something not out of people's reach, even the poor. They, above all, would need to experience through spinning and weaving a sense of what it might mean to do things for themselves, to stand on their own feet. Gandhi put great store on it as a practical-symbolic mode of shaking off the sense of dependency, for grasping the idea that deliverance from colonial subjugation lay at their own hands... (Sarat Maharaj, "Arachne's Genre: Towards Inter-Cultural Studies in Textiles," in: Journal of Design History, v.4, n.2 [1991], p.88). The text collects many of Gandhi's essays, including "Boycott of Goods vs. Non-co-operation Programme", "Indian Economics", "How to Boycott Foreign Cloth", "The Music of the Spinning Wheel", "Hand-spinning and Hand-weaving", "A Plea for Spinning", "The Doctrine of Charka", "The Charka in the Gita", "Spinning as Famine Relief", and "A Model Weaving School". A fine copy of a scarce book.

        Etiquette In Society, In Business, and At Home

      Funk and Wagnalls, New York 1922 - 1st edition of "the blue book of social usage" with a superficially sappy but largely affirmative impact on modern life, suggesting throughout, that today's pervasive attraction to lights and commotion are not social instincts. Rubs to cloth at the extremities else fine in a jacket with tears and chips to the edges and folds, internal strengthening to the folds, and a darkened spine, else very good. This 1st printing is scarce in dustjacket and mostly unsung as such, since there are always copies for sale, but they typically lack their jackets or turn out to be later printings. Etiquette means behaving a little better than is absolutely necessary. It is using hypocrisy as a tool for carving out felicity, so we pretend to be polite, practice it, and eventually we, in fact, become polite (fake it 'til you make it), and Post's book organizes and elucidates 1,000 ways to do so. The text has been reworked and modernized many times to track changing lifestyles, but our book is the original, wide ranging enough to include the still useful (and pragmatic) guidelines of how to write a thank you note, or make an introduction, or walk the streets, and additionally the less useful (but more amusing) counsel on the responsibilities of a parlor maid, or how to manipulate a finger bowl, or how to address a Duke. I suspect you can open it to any page for an entertaining 10 minute read, and though it's overladen with affected demands for groundless civilities, it's always so prudent that the inch and a half it will take on your shelf will prove worth the space whenever you crave diversion, and also as a vaccination against collector's focus acquiring the deadening effect of habit. Pure Americana baby. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

First edition of Woolf's breakthrough third novel, about the life of Jacob Flanders and his death in the First World War.

Eliot ('you have freed yourself from any compromise between the traditional novel and your original gift') and attacked by, for example, John Middleton Murry for its lack of plot ? From this time onwards Woolf was regarded as one of the principal exponents of modernism" (Oxford Companion to English Literature).

Illustrated by William Nicholson with color pictorial endpapers with seven richly colored full page lithographs, three are double page spreads. NOTE: A you can see from the pictures, this copy has many flaws, but all of the beautiful illustrations are present; the text is complete and the binding is solid. That being said there is significant foxing throughout; half of the front cover has been peeled off and a 4" piece peeled off the back cover. The title on the spine is present, but there is wear to the spine. Previous owner's name, address and date, appears in ink on the half title page. The boards are a little bend but not badly. Please refer to photographs and feel free to ask any questions you may have. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        La Revue Anarchiste. Paraissant tous les mois [Run of 21 issues, 1922-24]

      Paris: Revue Anarchiste, 1922. First Edition. Paperback. Significant and well-preserved run of the most important French inter-war anarchist journal, founded and edited by the prominent libertarian propagandist Sébastien Faure (1858-1942). Faure's career as an anarchist began as early as the 1880s, when he collaborated with Louise Michel to found the seminal anarchist review, La Libertaire. Among his other close associates were Peter Kropotkin and Vsevolod Eikhenbaum (aka "Voline"). La Revue Anarchiste was intended as a sort of clearing-house for news and articles of the worldwide Anarchist movement. In addition to being a good source for Faure's own writings, contributors to the current run of issues read like a virtual who's-who of prominent anarchist intellectuals of the period, including Voline; Augustine Souchy; Emma Goldman; Rudolf Rocker, and a host of authors writing under pseudonyms such as "Une Revoltée," "Mauricius," "Véber," etc. The woodcut-illustrated covers are all signed with the monogram "AC", unidentified by us but possibly the French anarchist poet André Colomer. Original issues of La Revue Anarchiste are uncommon; substantial runs still more so. Publication ceased in 1925, after 35 issues, and very few U.S. institutions hold even partial runs (OCLC suggests only three locations in North America as of August 2017). Twenty-one quarto issues in original pictorial wrappers. Run includes 21 of the first 28 numbers issued, as follows: nos. 1-3; 5-6; 8-11; 13-17; 20-24; 27,28. Condition uniformly Good to Very Good; all issues solidly bound in original wrappers, slightly soiled and creased but with no losses, markings, or tears. Text entirely in French.
