        Manuscript Letter Signed [Firma]

      Jacinto Benavente No Date, No Place Stated - ORIGINAL TWO-PAGE MANUSCRIPT LETTER SIGNED FROM NOBELIST JACINTO BENAVENTE to his friend Alberto ____________ written on a single sheet of paper folded once vertically to produce four pages, each measuring approximately 8 1/4 inches X 5 1/5 inches, with a horizontal fold -- presumably for mailing, and presumably responding to an invitation to engage in some pleasant visit or occupation. In his reply letter, Benavente discusses his being greatly occupied and his lack of time for doing additional things. He compares himself to a matador -- and his life to a bullring performance -- stating, in part and in English translation "My Dear Friend: Have you ever noticed how in the bullring, after any small good performance, the matador takes his time going all around the bullring to receive applause, and that there are always some impatient fans shouting 'confront the bull'? That is what happens to me. I have no time to make the tour all around the bullring. Truly, I am overloaded with work and a single rest day would delay everything." Jacinto Benavente, one of the foremost Spanish dramatists of the 20th century, won the 1922 Nobel Prize in Literature "for the happy manner in which he has continued the illustrious traditions of the Spanish drama". With modest toning to the paper, the letter is in Fine condition. We seldom see items signed by Jacinto Benavente and , in our experience, Manuscript letters from Jacinto Benavente are quite far from common. SCARCE. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Fort Clark. On the Missouri (February 1834)

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922. Aquatint engraving by Lucas Weber after Bodmer. Tear to left blank margin not affecting plate area. From the scarce Leipzig edition printed from the original copper-plates. Limited in number, the prints from the Leipzig edition are more scarce than, and compare favorably to, the first edition. (David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 85, p.18) A fine mid-winter scene: the bleakness of the frozen winter landscape broken by the constant flow of figures back and forth across the iced-over Missouri. Fort Clark is visible in the left mid-distance, warmly wrapped in their buffalo robes the Mandan women in the foreground carry their burdens up past the watchful warriors, out on the frozen river a line of figures make their way back and forth. In response to the pressures of the raids of neighbours the Mandan Tribe had consolidated their people in two main villages: Mih-Tutta-Hang-Kusch and Ruhptare. Mih-Tutta-Hang-Kusch, the largest of these can be seen in the distance across the Missouri to the right of the fort. Each settlement maintained a winter and a summer village, but, as this scene shows, there was constant traffic between the two. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833. They proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux tribe, learning of and recording their little known ceremonial dances and powerful pride and dignity. Transferring from the Yellow Stone to another steamer, the Assiniboin, they continued to Fort Clark, visiting there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow tribes, then the Assiniboins at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana, establishing a cautious friendship with the fearsome Blackfeet. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and especially the people, who were often both intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for their capturing of individual personalities, as well as forming a primary account of what were to become virtually lost cultures. David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint /Spring 1985, p.18. Cf.Graff 4648; cf. Howes M443a; cf. Pilling 2521; cf. Sabin 47014; cf. Wagner-Camp 76:1.

Raabe 167. - Nr. 25 von 300 Ex. (GA 350). Die Ränder sind teilweise etwas rissig, einige wenige Lithographien leicht lichtrandig. - Der Verleger Georg Müller fasst bereits 1912 den Plan, eine Strindberg-Ausgabe von Kubin illustrieren zu lassen. Kubin zögerte jedoch, denn er wollte zunächst noch weiter in die Werke des schwedischen Dichters eindringen, um von ihnen gefesselt zu werden. Erst 1919/1920 schuf Kubin die vorliegende Bildfolge. Nach neuerlicher Unsicherheit über \"die lähmende Übergewalt des Ganzen\" wurde die Mappe schliesslich im Winter 1920/1921 fertig. Im Mittelpunkt des autobiographischen Strindbergstücks steht \"der Ungekannte\", der tief unglücklich, als Gescheiterter und schuldig Gewordener den Läuterungsweg bis zur endgültigen Bekehrung geht. Der Titel ist eine Anspielung auf die Apostelgeschichte, wo die Bekehrung des Saulus vor Damaskus geschildert wird. Versand D: 2,30 EUR

        Raufende Frauen. Lithographie.

      1922 - Signiert "Rudolf Schlichter". Druck auf Velin. Söhn HDO 72711-10. Eines von 125 Exemplaren. Blatt 10 aus: Die Schaffenden. III. Jahrgang, 3. Mappe, 1922. Mit dem Trockenstempel "Die Schaffenden". - Der deutsche Künstler Rudolf Schlichter gilt als einer der wichtigsten Vertreter der Neuen Sachlichkeit. Schlichter studierte an der Kunstgewerbeschule in Stuttgart und an der Kunstakademie in Karlsruhe, u. a. bei Wilhelm Trübner und Hans Thoma. Schlichter unternahm mehrfach Studienreisen nach Italien und Frankreich und bekam durch seinen Malerkollegen Julius Kasper Kontakt zur Unterwelt. In Karlsruhe gehörte er zu den Mitbegründern der Gruppe Rih, übersiedelte dann nach Berlin, wo er sich der Novembergruppe, der Berliner Secession, den Berliner Dadaisten und der KPD anschloss. In den frühen 20er Jahren erschienen viele Buchillustrationen Schlichters. Sein Freundes- und Bekanntenkreis reichte von Bertolt Brecht, Sternberg, Alfred Döblin und Grosz bis hin zu Carl Zuckmayer, den er schon in Karlsruhe kennengelernt hatte. 1925 waren Werke Schlichters in der Ausstellung Neue Sachlichkeit in Mannheim zu sehen. Zwei Jahre später lernte er seine spätere Frau Elfriede Elisabeth Koehler, kennen und begann sich von der Politik abzukehren und dem Katholizismus zuzuwenden. Zu seinen Bekannten zählten nun Ernst von Salomon und die Brüder Ernst Jünger und Friedrich Georg Jünger. Unter den Nationalsozialisten wurden viele seiner Werke aus Museen entfernt und Schlichter wurde mit einem Arbeitsverbot belegt. Im Jahr 1939 zog Schlichter nach München, wo er unter anderem Kontakt zu Hans Scholl hatte, und sich der katholischen Zeitschrift Hochland anschloss. 1942 wurde Schlichter ausgebombt und verlor dabei einen Teil seiner Werke. Nach dem Krieg nahm er an der Ersten Deutschen Kunstausstellung in Dresden teil und gründete in München die Neue Gruppe. Gelegentlich arbeitete er für die satirische Zeitschrift Der Simpl. Sein Schaffen wandte sich jetzt dem Surrealismus zu. Rudolf Schlichter trat 1950 dem wiedergegründeten Deutschen Künstlerbund bei. - Die Ecken teilweise mit ganz minimalen Knickspuren.

        114 Songs (First Edition)

      Redding, CT: Charles Ives, 1922. First Edition. First Edition. Second issue, in publisher's blue cloth with titles and rule in gilt on the front board and spine, and with pages 37-39 printed, and no dust jacket as issued. Fine condition. A collection of avant-garde short pieces in every imaginable format (marches, violin sonatas, group sing-a-longs, etc.) written by Ives using the poetry of Walt Whitman, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Wordsworth, Keats, James Fenimore Cooper, and others as lyrics. Notable as much for musical content as for the long essay by Ives at the rear regarding his typically involved conceptual intentions for this particular gathering of compositions. An eccentric publication by one of our greatest and certainly most eccentric twentieth century composers.

      Verlag: München, Asokthebu O.W. Barth, 1922. 1 Bl., 156 S., 12 Bl. (Register).Original-Ganzlederband im Großformat 39 x 27 cm mit goldgeprägtem Rückentitel auf rotem Rückenschild sowie reichen ornamentalen Goldprägungen, die den gesamten Buchrücken bedecken; Buchdeckel mit ornamentaler Kantenvergoldung; Maschinenbütten (im Schnitt, naturgemäß, etwas ungleichmäßig). Hauptwerk des Universalgelehrten Leonhard Thurneysser (1731 - 1796). Thurneysser erlernte zunächst das Goldschmiedehandwerk; anschließend diente er als Famulus des Medizinprofessors Johannes Huber, der ihn auch in die Kunst der Kräuter- und Heilkräuterlehre einführte. Thurneysser erwarb, großenteils auf autodidaktischem Wege, ein umfangreiches Wissen in den Heilwissenschaften der Medizin und Pharmazie sowie in der Botanik, interessierte sich aber gleichermaßen für Mathematik und Astronomie sowie Metallurgie und Mineralogie. Die berufliche Hauptprofession Thurneyssers blieben aber die Medizin und pharmazeutische Botanik. In den Jahren 1569 und 1570 fungierte er als Leibarzt des Bischofs von Münster, Johann III. von Hoya, für den er eine umfangreiche Apotheke errichtete. Anschließend trat er in gleicher Position in die Dienste des brandenburgischen Kurfürsten Johann Georg, nachdem er dessen kränkelnde Frau geheilt hatte. Das hier vorliegende 1578 erschienene Werk über die Wirkungen der \"Erdgewechse\" kann als Haupthinterlassenschaft seiner pharmazeutisch-botanischen und astronomischen Forschungen gelten. Mit zahlreichen überwiegend botanischen und astronomischen Illustrationen. Die hier angebotene Faksimile-Ausgabe aus dem Jahre 1922 erschien in einer limitierte Auflage von nur 300 Exemplaren; sie liegt hier in der äußerst seltenen Prachtausgabe in Ganzleder vor. Der Ganzleder-Großband allenfalls partiell leicht berieben. Sonst sehr gutes Exemplar dieser würdigen Prachtausgabe des historischen Werkes, die nur in wenigen Exemplaren existieren dürfte.

        The Waste Land

      Boni and Liveright, 1922 Very good. True first ed. First state, no. 327 of 500 copies with flexible boards, limitation number 5 mm, "mountain" correctly spelled on page 41, etc. The first issue is identified as being in the first 500 or so numbered copies, as having flexible boards (as opposed to stiff) and by maintaining the 5mm font size on the stamped numbers on the colophon. This copy meets all of those first issue points.(Gallup A6b; McBride 26; Hayward 332). Arguably the greatest long poem of the 20th century. Housed in a custom-made collector's slipcase.. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/No Jacket.

      Paris: Shakespeare and Company,, 1922. Large quarto in eights. Original blue-green wrappers, titles to front wrapper in white, entirely unopened. Housed in a blue morocco-backed book-form slipcase and chemise. Some minor and very typical chafing to the folds of the wrappers, negligible loss at the tips, minor surface wear at the spine but a superb copy of the largest and most vulnerable of the three formats in which the first printing was issued. First edition, first printing, number 130 of 150 large paper copies numbered between 101 and 250. Ulysses was published in imitation of the traditional three-tiered French format aimed at both connoisseurs and readers: 100 copies were printed on Dutch handmade paper and signed by Joyce; 150 copies were printed on heavier vergé d'Arches to create this large paper format; and the remaining 750 copies formed a small format trade issue, printed on less expensive vergé à barbes stock. With its generous margins, the large paper issue is the most aesthetically pleasing of the three.

        Ulysses (Signed)

      Paris: Shakespeare and Co, 1922. First edition. The smallest limitation within the first printing, number 6 of 100 copies on Dutch handmade paper, signed by the author. Originally purchased by Lady Rothermere (Lilian Share), the wife of Harold Harmsworth, the tabloid baron, and who was a literary patron of T. S. Eliot, translator and general literati. Apparently bound for Lady Rothermere (judging by the age of the binding) in full yellow calf with the wrappers bound in and the top-edge gilt. A fine copy internally, some pages remain unopened. Binding a bit toned on the spine, and minor wear at the extremities otherwise in excellent shape. Housed in a custom clamshell. Joyce's masterwork of modernism, one of the great books of the 20th century. Though it follows a single day in the life of Dubliner Leopold Bloom - June 16th, a day which has since become a worldwide holiday - Ulysses's complex structure is actually inspired by Homer's Odyssey. The book's stream of consciousness prose and its experimental nature were groundbreaking, and many of the techniques Joyce used have since become standard fare. Ulysses took Joyce over seven years to write, and the story of its publication became an epic in itself. The work was first released in serial from 1918 to 1920 in the magazine "The Little Review," and published in Paris in a limited first edition in 1922 by Sylvia Beach, the owner of the Shakespeare and Company bookstore. It was not, however, released in the UK and United States, where the book had quickly been banned. In fact, copies were smuggled into both countries until a landmark obscenity trial cleared the book for American publication in 1934. Joyce claimed that he "put in so many enigmas and puzzles [into Ulysses] that it will keep the professors busy for centuries arguing over what I meant, and that's the only way of insuring one's immortality." Time has certainly proven him correct. "Ulysses is the most important contribution that has been made to fictional literature in the twentieth century. It will immortalize its author with the same certainty that Gargantua and Pantagruel immortalized Rabelais, and "The Brothers Karamazov" Dostoevsky. It is likely that there is no one writing English today that could parallel Joyce's feat…" (Contemporary NY Times Review, 1922). Slocum and Cahoon A17.

      London: Percival Marshall & Co., n.d., [1922] - Octavo, pp. [1-4] [1] 2-188, 22 illustrations in text, original red cloth, front panel stamped in blind and gold, spine panel stamped in gold. First edition. "Collection of nine weird and science-fictional tales, eccentric in manner and slightly amateurish, though with imaginative ideas. The author was evidently a professional engineer and published a number of nonfictional works on that subject, ensuring authentic 'local color' for these stories, all of which involve an intersection between the mechanical and the occult. The illustrations are quite professional and atmospheric. An admirably oddball collection." - Robert Eldridge. Day, The Supplemental Checklist of Fantastic Literature, p. 58. Not in Reginald or either of the Bleiler Checklists. Not in Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy (I-III). Early owner's signature dated 1925 on half-title page. Magazine clipping about the Great Western Railway locomotive "Winnipeg" affixed to front free endpaper, spine panel faded, binding leaned, cloth a little faded, gold stamping tarnished, a good copy of a rare book.
