        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.

        The Wonderful Adventures of Little Prince Toofat

      New York: The James A. McCann Company, 1922. First edition. Hardcover. Very good. Illustrations by Robert Lawson.. 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.

        [Military][Navy][Travel] Photo Album Depicting Navy Man's Worldwide Tours

      Seemingly Everywhere. 1922-1925. 7” x 11”. String-tied black cloth over flexible card. 142 pages pages with 490 black and white photographs inserted into corner mounts. Most photos measure from 2½” x 3½” to 3” x 5” and all but 14 are captioned. Additionally, 16 pages of typescript bound in before the photos + Epsel's Navy identification card and discharge papers. Album good, because it lacks its front cover and has heavy edge wear; otherwise near fine with near fine or better photos, though some are faded; three photos lacking. An immense photo album detailing a sailor's exploits on three long cruises in the early 1920s. Henry Epsel spent many months at sea and was rarely without a camera. The album starts with his typescript timeline that provides dates, places and short notes of experiences such as in September 1922 when his group participated in getting tens of thousands of refugees out of Smyrna. He loved Australia, writing, “most wonderful welcome and reception ever received by sailors. Beautiful women and girls are plenty here. We were forced into company of girls at all times. Most everything free. It did not pay for us to get drunk as we lost out on too much of good times. ”With the exception of Russia, he took photos of nearly every place he visited including Beirut, Jaffa, England, Holland, Cuba, the Panama Canal, California, Athens, Constantinople and more. There are moving images of makeshift cemeteries at Gallipoli and quite a few street shots in many of the cities. We see worshipers at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem, ruins at Balbak, Syria, and ships filled with refugees. A self proclaimed ladies' man, there's a number of photos of the beauties Epsel left on land including “Rotterdam Special”, “my Dutch girl” and “my Spanish queen. ”While this is more a travel album than a military one there's well over 100 photos of ships and maneuvers as well as life aboard his ships. A comprehensive look at the world through the eyes of a sailor with a good number of well composed images. This item is offered by Langdon Manor Books, LLC, antiquarian booksellers.

        The Waste Land [Criterion Vol. I, no. I]

      London: Criterion, 1922. First Edition. wrappers. Very good. 1st appearance anywhere, in any form, of the iconic modernist poem, preceding all others, in The Criterion (Vol. I, no. I), a quarterly Literary magazine founded and edited by Eliot himself, primarily for the purpose of publishing The Waste Land. Original 2 color printed wrappers, a small skinned patch, frayed at the overlapping edges, light foxing, a little dusty, but still very good, nice for this book. Something of an association copy. Ex-Ruth Wadsworth Porter (her signature on the cover), the wife of James Foster Porter, and mother of Fairfield and Eliot Porter, T. S. Eliot's (2nd?) cousins, so it's not irrational (considering the relation) to propose that our copy of The Criterion may have been a gift from T.S. Eliot himself. Or not. The Waste Land first appeared in this periodical in early October, but follow the progressive history as it unfolded. The second appearance (the first in the U. S.) was in the Nov. 1922 issue of The Dial magazine (actually issued later in Oct.). In Dec. 1922, The Waste Land was first published as a book (in New York) by Boni and Liveright (1,000 copies), adding the author's notes, and as part of their agreement, The Dial bought 350 copies of Boni and Liveright's book, being 70% of the copies that have long been singled out as the book's 1st binding and 1st issue (calculated as 500 by their numbering). And then, in Sept. 1923, along came the first U. K. book edition (The Hogarth Press, 450 copies). Now forget all that. Our Criterion is the original, The Waste Land's first glimpse of the light, a genesis so overflowing with significance, that it being offered at such a sensible price, brings us to contrasts so absurd, that they're even noticed by the mentally unemployed, and I say that thoroughly sterilized of even perfunctory regret. And its amply scarce with only 1 copy of it listed in the auction record for the last 10 years ($3,250 hammer in 2006), that copy described as being in 3 pieces with its wrappers detached (you can look it up in the tornography), and I can tell you that it was more unlikeable than someone who sets a wet glass on your favorite book.

        Falbalas & Fanfreluches. Almanach des Modes presentes, passées et futures pour 1922, 1923, 1924, 1925 and 1926.

      Paris Meynial -26 1922 - First edition. 5 volumes. 8vo (25.2 x 17 cm). Each issue with colour vignette to title and 12 colour pochoir plates (60 in total), introductory text by Colette. Loose as issued in original coloured pictorial wrappers by Barbier, original glassine, housed in grey clamshell box with orange morocco lettering piece; glassine for 1922 partly perished. A complete set of this exquisite series displaying fashion in magnificent and imaginative illustrations. The series includes Barbier's depiction of the seven deadly sins (in the volume for 1925). Here one finds a great theme of the Western iconographical tradition at home in Barbier's special world. 'Anger' shows a modish couple quarelling in a formal garden; 'Envy' is displayed by a maid regarding her mistress as she steps from a Rolls Royce; and 'Gluttony' is depicted as a gourmandise. Falbalas et fanfreluches was the last of Barbier's books to reflect contemporary life. Its special value lies in the unique way in which it catches the tone and mood of les années vingts.

Pío Baroja y Nessi (28 December 1872 – 30 October 1956) was a Spanish writer, one of the key novelists of the Generation of '98 Ernest Hemingway was greatly influenced by Baroja and told him when he visited him in October 1956, "Allow me to pay this small tribute to you who taught so much to those of us who wanted to be writers when we were young. I deplore the fact that you have not yet received a Nobel Prize, especially when it was given to so many who deserved it less, like me, who am only an adventurer." (Amazon)

        Ulysses

      Paris: Shakespeare and Company, 1922. First Edition. Paperback. Very good. 1st edition, 1st issue of 750 copies (the first ones on Feb. 2nd), before the 100 on Dutch paper (Feb. 13th) and the 150 on large paper (Mar. 4th). Original printed paper wrappers, rebacked, one corner, one edge flap, and 5 blank page corners repaired, rear endpaper restored, little chips along the edges, else good condition, complete, and we're being precise, and other depictions are suspiciously vague. 1st editions of Ulysses for what we're asking are gone. The cheapest equivalents start at twice our price and go up from there, and the only thing 4 generations of "1st thus" reprints share in common is declining demand, but a new generation of readers is on the rise. They've heard it's the supreme modernist novel and industrial strength psychological realism, and they're told it was condemned as scandalous erotica, in the days when safe sex meant a padded headboard, and they've read it was stoutly suppressed by authorities fearful of any novel portraying chastity as an unlit lamp, or adult abstinence as malnutrition. But millennials don't care what squares thought about sex 95 years ago, or that from the 1940s to the 1970s Ulysses' meaning was mused upon as a cypher in some language twins teach each other. They just face it as a long and arduous 732 page, 265,000 word legacy, a test of focus, set in turn of the century Dublin, and only worth the effort because it recaptures life in a signally fascinating time and place. So the motivation for reading Ulysses has been protean in each generation, but it always stayed the best of its type, and that flexibility of appeal is the profile of conscious art. Let's try to narrow the gap between you and James Joyce. Here he is on the moon: "Her antiquity in preceding and surviving succeeding tellurian generations: her nocturnal predominance: her satellitic dependence: her luminary reflection: her constancy under all her phases, rising and setting by her appointed times, waxing and waning: the forced invariability of her aspect: her indeterminate response to inaffirmative interrogation: her potency over effluent and refluent waters: her power to enamour, to mortify, to invest with beauty, to render insane, to incite to and aid delinquency: the tranquil inscrutability of her visage: the terribility of her isolated dominant resplendent propinquity: her omens of tempest and of calm: the stimulation of her light, her motion and her presence: the admonition of her craters, her arid seas, her silence: her splendour, when visible: her attraction, when invisible." -Ulysses Ready to read it? Here's a boost. Don't hesitate. Proceed aggressively. If your comprehension lapses-even for pages at a time-it's better to push on seeing as you're going to get lost in the random flux, where things encountered early are not explained until much later, so you'll have to reread it anyway.

        The Waste Land [Criterion Vol. I, no. I]

      London: Criterion, 1922. 1st appearance anywhere, in any form, of the iconic modernist poem, preceding all others, in The Criterion (Vol. I, no. I), a quarterly Literary magazine founded and edited by Eliot himself, primarily for the purpose of publishing The Waste Land. Original 2 color printed wrappers, a small skinned patch, frayed at the overlapping edges, light foxing, a little dusty, but still very good, nice for this book. Something of an association copy. Ex-Ruth Wadsworth Porter (her signature on the cover), the wife of James Foster Porter, and mother of Fairfield and Eliot Porter, T. S. Eliot's (2nd?) cousins, so it's not irrational (considering the relation) to propose that our copy of The Criterion may have been a gift from T.S. Eliot himself. Or not. The Waste Land first appeared in this periodical in early October, but follow the progressive history as it unfolded. The second appearance (the first in the U. S.) was in the Nov. 1922 issue of The Dial magazine (actually issued later in Oct.). In Dec. 1922, The Waste Land was first published as a book (in New York) by Boni and Liveright (1,000 copies), adding the author's notes, and as part of their agreement, The Dial bought 350 copies of Boni and Liveright's book, being 70% of the copies that have long been singled out as the book's 1st binding and 1st issue (calculated as 500 by their numbering). And then, in Sept. 1923, along came the first U. K. book edition (The Hogarth Press, 450 copies). Now forget all that. Our Criterion is the original, The Waste Land's first glimpse of the light, a genesis so overflowing with significance, that it being offered at such a sensible price, brings us to contrasts so absurd, that they're even noticed by the mentally unemployed, and I say that thoroughly sterilized of even perfunctory regret. And its amply scarce with only 1 copy of it listed in the auction record for the last 10 years ($3,250 hammer in 2006), that copy described as being in 3 pieces with its wrappers detached (you can look it up in the tornography), and I can tell you that it was more unlikeable than someone who sets a wet glass on your favorite book. Very good.

        Report on Tung Kong Ping Yung and Hoi Wai Highways and reconnaissance of routes for proposed Highway-Waichow to Hoi Fung Yuen, Kwong Tung Province, China

      April 1922 - 4to., 50 pp., printed on versos only, plan, 69 original mounted photographs, including 8 composite panoramic views. Pocket at front containing additional photographs and documents, original green cloth gilt, excellent condition. The original typed engineer's report for the reconnaissance of routes for the proposed Waichow to Hoi Fung Yuen highway. The report was for the Commissioner of Highways, Province of Kwong Tung. The report also contains Homes' observations on the roads already under construction in the province. The engineer, Holmes, was employed by the James A. Rabbitt Engineering Company, Canton office. Employed by the Commissioner of Highways for the Province of Kwong Tung [Canton, now Guangdong], Colonel Holmes undertook a five week survey through an area of China largely bereft of roads, with the brief of finding routes to link the isolated inland communities with the coast, so that they could benefit from the sea trade to Hong Kong. As well as recording the distances, topography and geology of the routes, he also comments on the agriculture, industry and size of local populations. Due to the seasonal flooding, the routes needed to be carefully chosen and a great many bridges anticipated. He gives costings for the routes, but also comments and takes photographs. "Close outside the village of Sun Um Hui is a hot mineral spring in which the local people have been bathing probably for many centuries and is reputed to have qualities beneficial to health. I suggest that this water be analysed and if its reputation is sustained then the ground be acquired by the government and on completion of the highway, baths and a bathing pool be neatly constructed of cement concrete, and a hotel erected. This properly arranged and managed could be made a source of revenue as a pleasing health and holiday resort." Among the large number of photographs there are 8 composite panoramic views; surely the earliest panoramas of the region. The document was probably produced in small numbers, possibly only 2 or 3 copies - the present example and perhaps a copy for the Canton office and the head office of the engineering company in New York. This report provides a fine visual record of the province and is an important piece of industrial archaeology. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Exrtracts from Press Notices of Ulysses by James Joyce

      Harlesden [London]: Leveridge & Co, 1922. 4 pp. 8vo. Self wrappers. A few edge-tears, old folds and minor wrinkling. 4 pp. 8vo. A four-page promotional leaflet printing critical reactions to Ulysses--not all of them positive--published the same year as the first edition. Includes reviews in English, French, and Italian by the likes of Valery Larboud, Ezra Pound, Ford Madox Hueffer, Edmund Wilson, Holdbrook Jackson, Djuna Barnes, and several others. Reactions run the gamut, from an effusive Hueffer: "One feels admiration that is almost reverence for the incredible labours of this incredible genius ... a book of profound knowledge and of profound renderings of humanity"; to the outrage of 'Domini Canis' in the Dublin Review, "A fearful travesty on persons happenings and intimate life of the most morbid and sickening description." Many are a mix of high praise and reservation, including Arnold Bennett's assessment: "The book is not pornographic, but it is more indecent, obscene, scatalogical, and licentious than the majority of professedly pornographical books" but adding that "The best portions of the novel are superb." The leaflet was put together by Harriet Weaver shortly after her Egoist Press co-published the second edition of Ulysses in October 1922 (the first appeared in February). Letters from Joyce to Weaver in the fall of 1922 record that Joyce himself selected many of the quotes included in the pamphlet. Examples have not survived in great numbers.
