        Lettera autografa inviata da Giacomo Puccini all'amico Angelo Magrini, non datata ma con timbro postale 21 dicembre 1922.

      - Lettera autografa ad inchiostro in formato cm.24,8x15,1, compilata solo al recto su 23 righe, su carta intestata "Via Verdi, 4 - Milano" in chiara grafia. ". Al verso indicazione del destinatario e indirizzo (Viale Carducci - Viareggio), con tre francobolli e relativa affrancatura. Missiva di interesse musicale, in cui il musicista parla di una prossima esecuzione della sua "Manon Lescaut" alla Scala di Milano, in programma appunto il 26 novembre 1922: "Caro Angiolino, La prima di "Manon" sarà il 26. Verrà? L'avrei caro ci fosse. Spero sarà molto bene, e difficilmente si sentirà un'esecuzione come questa alla Scala". Puccini ragguaglia poi l'amico sulle sue condizioni di salute ("Io sto meglio ma non ancora del tutto bene, qui piove e nebbia fitta, niente freddo"). A conferma dei rapporti di amicizia tra i due, il Maestro chiede a Magrini di porgere saluti e auguri a Elvira e Tonio, la moglie e il figlio, che evidentemente erano rimasti a Viareggio nell'abitazione di Via Foscolo senza seguire il musicista a Milano. Al verso, sempre di mano di Puccini, è aggiunta la notazione "saluti a Cecco". Pur dandosi ancora del "lei", Angelo Magrini fu grande amico di Puccini soprattutto negli ultimi anni di vita del compositore. Membro, con i vari Pagni, Marotti, Panichelli e Paladini" del "Club Gianni Schicchi", fondato in ricordo dei fasti di gioventù del "Club La Bohème", Magrini, di buone condizioni economiche, possedeva una casa a Cutigliano, ove Puccini ogni tanto soggiornava. Fu lui ad accompagnare il Maestro nel lungo tour europeo nell'estate del 1922, ancora in auto a Vienna nel maggio del '23, e soprattutto ad essere presente a Bruxelles al momento del decesso. 50 gr.

      New York Boni & Liveright 1922 [1923?] Number 369 (stamped in type 2-mm high, per Gallup A6b) of the second impression limited to just 1000 copies. (Though stated as the "second edition" on the colophon page, this second impression of 1000 copies was printed from the same setting of type as the first printing and is more accurately termed, as listed in Gallup, the "second impression.")

Slim octavo; 64pp. Publisher's stiff black cloth, the spine and upper cover lettered in gilt, all edges deckled; in the original salmon-pink dust jacket printed in black. Near Fine, clean and complete, the gilt lettering still bright, with minor bumping to the spine ends; flawed by dark offsetting from paper laid in between the rear end papers and between pp. 38-39 and light chipping to the top of the half title and title pages where the uncut pages were opened carelessly; otherwise a bright, unmarred, very lightly read copy with no names, bookplates, or writing. The jacket is Near Fine or better without restoration, the front and back panel clean and complete—indeed Fine—but the spine darkened with trivial rubbing to the ends and a small sliver of loss mid-spine, not affecting any lettering. Overall, a remarkable, highly collectible copy of likely the century's most important poetic work. Near Fine

Both volumes are contained within a handsome, cloth lined and leather covered slip case. Volume I is signed by the author using both his real name and his nom de plume. The facing page states that the page was signed by Mark Twain in 1906 in anticipation of the publication of this definitive collection. Additionally, volume I is identified as being part of set number 30 of only 1,024 sets printed. Volume I contains 311 pages of text and is illustrated with a frontispiece portrait of Twain and four engravings with titled tissue guards.

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

      Doran, New York 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. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Group of Love Letters to Flora Temple Lash, whom he married, with sketches and related ephemera

      No Binding. Very Good. 20 letters, 59 pages, several letters illustrated with sketches, letters dated 1922-1941, the bulk from 1923-1924, with 9 pencil and pen sketches, 17 printed and manuscript ephemeral items, including: exhibition lists, catalogs and price lists, Christmas cards designed and printed by the artist, the ephemera dates from 1912-1941, with nine snapshot photographs, plus accompanying negatives. Collection of love letters from Albert Sterner, an academically trained artist, painter, draughtsman and print-maker, who as an older married man, at the age of 60, seems to have fallen hard for the younger Flora Temple Lash. Sterner divorced his first wife and later married Flora. The letters discuss Sterner's artistic life and his relationship with Flora. [March 14, 1923] New York, to Flora Temple Lash, Philadelphia "Darling! If ever in my life I did what I longed not to do it was then when the door closed last night and I left you. I crossed the wet street and looked up at your windows but you were busy - undressing - going in your little bed where but a moment before you had lain beside me. It was heavenly sweet that quiet embrace - It was so close so dear so deep - The silences of it are still in my memory! I got a lower berth on the 1215 and went to bed and stayed there till 7 this morning I slept fitfully - had breakfast at the Pennsylvania Station and got here long before Norah arrived. I have been working on and off at the etching scraping out a large place - it is arduous the cutting of the copper - So I am not sending you a proof till the thing is corrected - and Jules just came with another photograph of your drawing - but it is worse than the other so tomorrow he will do it again. ." [October 1, 1923] New York, to Flora Temple Lash, Philadelphia "Dear Love! I have thought of you all through this day - Now it is night - and I long for you so I might kiss your dear eyes and just hear your lovely voice say "Albert" No one says it like you do, no one! Even over the phone when you are many miles away it bears me to your love - and I love it. I had dinner alone at the Arts Club, for the Players Kitchen is out of commission and we go next door and eat among the old ladies - they are all old ladies there men and women - This morning I printed a beautiful proof from my plate 'the mask' or 'Now Unmask' which title do you prefer. It is really a beautiful proof. I am more & more mad about etching and I find out more wonderful things about it every hour. It is much more precious than lithography and much more difficult and longer to make and so one loves it more. It is more uncertain too and has more mystery. I want you to see this proof, so if you don't come to New York at the end of the week I will bring it to show you and will try to print from your plate reading too. - A mad idea has been in my head of renting my studio and going to stay in Vermont . so I would not have to earn so much money and could go on etching - but it is only an idea and may never materialize. ." [Jan 7 1924] New York to Flora Temple Lash, Philadelphia "Dearest Love! . All this week every evening till Saturday I have to play the little Pirandello Play - and on Monday the 14 - I begin the portrait of Mr. Tyler at Elkins Park. I shall go to Philad. Sunday the other two drawings they ordered are to be done later. Tyler wrote that they loved the boy's portrait. On the 17th I lecture at the Fellowship. Did you get the photographs & get them to Mary Butler? And on the 19th I give my lecture on drawing here at the Anderson ." June 27, 1924, Binghamton, New York to Flora T.

Minor wear at the spine ends, but complete and unrestored. A very scarce children's book, the first one illustrated by the wonderful Robert Lawson, best known for illustrating "Ferdinand' by Munro Leaf and for writing numerous children's books himself.

No other first edition copies currently on the market and only one auction record from 2009 which brought over $2,000. (Remember 2009? That's when the bottom dropped out of the housing market and the Dow plunged below 7000). Very Good.

        L'uomo, la bestia e la virtù. Apologo in tre atti

      R. Bemporad & Figlio, Editori, Firenze 1922 - Maschere nude volume V. 151 pp. Full brown calf, four raised bands, gilt lettering and decorations on spines. Signed and inscribed by Pirandello "Ad Alessandro Varaldo, fraternamente, Luigi Pirandello." Varaldo was a fellow playwright, novelist and mystery writer: his book Il settebello is considered the first example of Italian detective novel. The tragic satire and savage humor that emerged through the story of a troubled couple disturbed early audiences accustomed to sentimental bourgeois comedy, but the play reveals Pirandello's ability to exaggerate the realms of both apology and farce. Mild foxing to edges, small laceration to the spine, short tear to front cover also along the spine. A pleasing presentation copy. In the Italian language. ; Octavo; Signed by Author.

From the collection of the late Robert (Taylor) Agasucci (aka Stafford Stone), artist, graphic designer, book illustrator and aficionado of the work of Austin Osman Spare. The boards are a little marked and darkened, (tea?) splash at fore-edge of upper board, corners of boards rounded and chafed, but binding still very solid, page edges a bit darkened and foxed, owner's name on front blank.

        The Worst Journey in the World

      Constable, 1922. 1st edition. Hardcover. Two volumes, each in buff linen boards, very slightly rubbed, with later red morocco-backed spines. Clean pages throughout, bar a few light spots. Colour frontispieces to each volume. All colour plates, half-tone photographs, maps and panoramas, some folding, are present and correct in both volumes. Very nice marble-patterned slipcase. A really handsome presentation of this classic account of Captain Scott's fateful Terra Nova expedition to Antarctica, by the youngest member of the team. After arriving in McMurdo Sound, Dr Edward Wilson, 'Birdie' Bowers and Cherry-Garrard set off in 1911 to Cape Crozier to retrieve Emperor penguin eggs for scientific study, enduring terrible conditions ('the worst journey'). On their return, Wilson and Bowers joined the expedition to the South Pole, where they died, along with Captain Scott, and were found by Cherry-Garrard and others. Very nice copy of this much sought-after polar memoir.
