        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.

        A Shropshire Lad.

      Grant Richards 1922 - pp. viii, 101, 12mo, original red morocco, upper board blind-stamped with decorative border, lettering in gilt to upper board and backstrip, small section missing at head of upper joint, general rubbing and light soiling, good. Inscribed, in the year of the first publication of 'The Waste Land', by T.S. Eliot, as a gift to his sister: 'for Charlotte, with love and best wishes for Christmas and the New Year. From Vivien and Tom. 1922'. The appearance of his wife's name in an inscription is uncommon, but natural enough in the family context - however strained the relationship was by that time. Eliot's admiration of the book, though Housman is often considered among the authors against whom he set his stall, is made clear by this Christmas gift to his 'favorite sister' (as he was to call her following her death in 1926); it is further corroborated in his presentation to Housman of a copy of 'The Journey of the Magi' ('in respectful homage') in 1927, by which time they had met and corresponded - with mutual respect but not a great deal of common ground. Though Eliot, in declining an article proposed by Muriel St Clare Byrne that was critical of 'A Shropshire Lad', described having 'only just escaped his influence myself', he does offer a playful pastiche in 'The Whale that leapt on Bredon', a verse-fragment by Eliot found in Geoffrey Faber's papers.

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).

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

      Revue Anarchiste, Paris 1922 - 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.

        [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. Gaudriault p115. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
