        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.

        Ulysses.

      Paris: Shakespeare & Company, 1922. First edition of Joyce's masterpiece. One of 750 numbered copies on handmade paper from a total edition of 1000 copies, this is number 318. Thick quarto, bound in full blue morocco, with the original wrappers bound in. In near fine condition. Ulysses was published in Paris by Shakespeare & Company, 1922. It was a struggle for the author to find a publisher, a comic irony considering that Ulysses is "[u]niversally hailed as the most influential work of modern times" (Grolier Joyce 69). Ulysses was an immediate success. The first printing sold out, and "within a year Joyce had become a well-known literary figure. Ulysses was explosive in its impact on the literary world of 1922" (de Grazia, 27). Even so, the book faced difficulties in global reception. It was banned in the U.K. and was prosecuted for the obscenity in the Nausicaa episode (Ellmann, 1982). Joyce's inspiration for the novel began as a young boy reading Charles Lamb's Adventures of Ulysses and writing an essay entitled "My Favorite Hero" after being impressed by the wholeness of the character (Goreman, 1939). The idea for the novel grew from a story in Dubliners in 1906, which Joyce expanded into a short book in 1907, before reconceptualizing it as the heady novel in 1914 (Ellmann, 1982). The book can initially seem unstructured and chaotic, and Joyce admitted that he "put in so many enigmas and puzzles that it will keep the professors busy for centuries arguing over what I meant" (The Observer, 2000). The French translator Stuart Gilbert published a defense of Ulysses shortly after its publication in which he supported the novel's use of obscenity and explained its internal structure and links to the Odyssey against accusations of ambiguity. Every episode, Gilbert explained, is connected to the Odyssey by theme, technique, and correspondence between characters. Another instance of Ulysses' literary contribution is his use of stream-of-consciousness, a technique employing carefully structured prose, both humorous and charactering, and involving puns and parodies. Joyce was a precursor to the use of stream of consciousness in the later decades. Similar narrative techniques were used by his contemporaries Virginia Wolfe, William Faulkner, and Italo Svevo. Their style can be better characterized as an "interior monologue, rather than stream of consciousness, is the appropriate term for the style in which [subjective experience] is recorded, both in The Waves and in Woolf's writing generally" (Stevenson, 1992).

A complete run (Issues 1-6) of the German Periodical on Jewish Art. In Hebrew. "Mark Wischnitzer (1882-1955) was a scholar of Jewish history... He studied at the University of Vienna and University of Berlin, from which he received his doctorate in 1906. Wischnitzer served as editor of the history section of the Russian-language Jewish Encyclopedia from 1908 to 1913, and later as the editor of the Encyclopaedia Judaica published in Berlin. " (Wikipedia, 2017) "The driving force behind Rimon was a small circle of Russian Jews, headed by historian Mark Wischnitzer and his wife, art historian Rachel Bernstein-Wischnitzer. In late 1921, the couple joined a group of Russian-Jewish émigrés in Berlin. They presented the idea of publishing a Jewish art journal to their friend Leopold Sew, a Russian-Jewish intellectual who was visiting Berlin from Paris, where he had fled after the revolution. Sew was excited by the idea and referred the couple to Eliahu Feinson, who belonged to a group of Jewish-Russian capitalists who supported Hebrew publication projects. Feinson enlisted with fervor in the publication of Jewish art books, and provided the necessary funding for commencing the work. His name appeared on almost all publications of the company as one of its three directors, alongside Dr. Mark Wischnitzer and Alexander Kogan, two of the great Russian publishers who had come to Berlin during this period, and were involved in the production of one of the most esteemed journals to be published in both Russian and German.

        Tales of Long Ago.

      London: John Murray, [1922]. FIRST EDITION, AUTHOR'S OWN COPY GIVEN AS A PRIZE. Octavo (18 x 12cm), pp.[ii]; [vi]; 211; [3]. Bound by Truelove and Hanson in half scarlet calf, gilt, t.e.g. With author's inscription to title page; Windlesham / Billiard / Prize / Jan 22/ 27 / A Conan Doyle [underline].Some rubbing to extremities, cheap paper toned; very good. A curious personal item; Doyle's main residence from 1907 was Windlesham in Crowborough, East Sussex, where he lived until his death in 1930; indeed he passed away in bed at home, and was buried in the grounds. Throughout his life Doyle was a sportsman extraordinary, indulging in most games and doing well; clearly billiards was a favourite pastime and a table was installed at the house where informal competitions were held. This book prize, awarded in 1927, was almost certainly one of the author's own copies in a bespoke Oxford Street binding (commercial copies were cloth-bound with jacket), plucked from the Windlesham library shelves and inscribed as required. The book is a collection of adventure stories mostly taken from 'The Last Galley' although the final entry had not appeared in a book-form edition. Green and Gibson A55.

Front free endpaper, verso: one page autograph letter signed from L-V to Hyland, thanking Hyland for his letter, expressing willingness to meet when he "come(s) over to Germany", and a PS "kind regards to Dr. Paul Wolff" (dated 25-6-50).

Verso of preface: mounted one page typed letter signed from Konrad Heiden to Hyland, concerning L-V and his relationship to Hitler, " … socially and personally those people - i.e. former officers - and Nazis- used to hate each other like sin" (dated 12/12/46).

He tells Hyland that he will send him some of the books on East Africa that he had seen in his home, and tells him a bit about his role in Africa during WWI. The second letter (dated November 8 1950) responds to a list of ten questions Hyland had sent, in quite fascinating detail about his capture by the British. Wolff was a German medical officer on the S.S. Tabora, Deutsch-Ostafrika Lines before the outbreak of the war. He explains where he captured, interned as a POW, his treatment by the British, and much more, including details of L-V's character. Verso rear free and rear pastedown endpapers: mounted copy of articles from the Times. relating to L-V's visit to England in 1929. Loosely inserted group of bibliographic notes on books relating to the East African campaign. Lettow-Vorbeck (1870-1964) conducted one of the most extraordinary campaigns of the Great War. For four years, with a force that never exceeded about 14,000 (3,000 Germans and 11,000 Africans), he held in check a much larger force of 300,000 British, Belgian, and Portuguese troops. Essentially undefeated in the field, Lettow-Vorbeck was the only German commander to successfully invade imperial British soil during the First World War. His exploits in the campaign have been described by the American historian Edwin P. Hoyt as "the greatest single guerrilla operation in history, and the most successful" (The Germans Who Never Lost, 1968).

        [Three maps:] The British Empire at Bay on the Western Front. A visualised map compiled by Albert Close [with:] Index to British War Cemeteries [with:] The Naval War Chart of the North Sea. Compiled by Albert Close.

      London: Edward Stanford, Ltd.,, 1922-23. Western Front map (folded 225 x 275 mm, unfolded 1085 x 1110 mm), coloured and illustrated, dissected into 30 panels and linen-backed,, scale 1:200,000; Cemeteries map (folded 245 x 85 mm, unfolded 960 x 725 mm); Naval map (folded 225 x 168 mm, unfolded 1330 x 990 mm), illustrated, dissected into 36 panels and linen-backed, scale 1:500,000. Housed in two later black grained card library slipcases. Neat library stamps and holograph pressmarks of Brighton Public Libraries on versos. All in remarkably good condition. A group of three very scarce, imposing and fascinating maps, the principal two covering in remarkable detail the complexities of the Great War on the Western Front and in the North Sea, compiled by the Canadian-born cartographer Albert Close. The Western Front map (dated 15 January 1923 and November 1923) – published as a companion piece to the Naval War Chart - carries the sub-title "from confidential maps used at British Headquarters in France and Belgium and from Official Despatches". Stanford's blurb explains that "this is the first map published showing the tremendous German forces massed on the whole British Front, and the actual British forces opposing them on Mar. 21st, 1918. These confidential British and German maps have been kept secret until now. Hundreds of Officers who were in various Divisions all over the Western Front have critically examined this new Map, and confirm its accuracy, especially the lines on March 21st, 1918, and Haig's perilous shortage of Reserves". Intriguingly, Close has chosen as his focus not the Allied breakthrough of August–November 1918 but the positions at 21 March, the date of the opening of "Operation Michael", the German Spring Offensive which threw the British Army into disarray. The Fifth Army, under Sir Hubert Gough, bore the shock of this attack and its "organized battle of retreat" (ODNB) is memorialised on the map ("Fifth Army bore the brunt of the mightiest assault in military history… their cemeteries of dead testify to their stubborn valour in the face of overwhelming odds"). Early and later offensives are noted, including "Foch's great counter attack July 18th 1918" at the Second Battle of the Marne. The map carries glowing press reviews and encomiums from senior British officers Sir John Davidson, Gough, and Lord Byng and includes army-level dispositions, portraits of the leading commanders, losses at various battles, memorials, quotes and illustrations of battle scenes (such as "tank smashing through a machine gun nest"). The war cemeteries maps focusses on the Ypres–Somme battles. The naval map (dated 15 March and "3rd Edition April 1922") is included in the Library of Congress online exhibition "Echoes of the Great War: American Experiences of World War I". It includes a plan of the Battle of Jutland, "principal mine-fields, Zepps destroyed, position of German submarines sunk and naval battles". The Spectator review described it as "ingenious and accurate". There is little information about the cartographer Albert Close; we know that he was based in Ilford, Essex (the Western Front map was printed by Hayden of Ilford Hill). Before the Great War he specialized in charts for fishermen (Close's Orkney and Shetland Sailing Directions for Fishermen, Close's Fishermen's Pilot round the British Isles) and in 1921 Stanford published his Handy Wheel House Chart Book. He also specialized in the history of the Spanish Armada (1588) and managed to work this in to his naval map. "Albert Close… was particularly vehemently anti-Catholic, for example, England was saved by a Divine Hand and the defeat of the Armada was 'a great sermon preached to the Popish and Protestant nations'" (Eugene L. Rasor, English/British Naval History to 1815: A Guide to the Literature, 2004, p. 93). Decidedly scarce: Western Front: Copac cites copies at only three British and Irish institutional libraries (British Library, Scotland, Oxford); War Cemeteries: British Library and Imperial War Museum only (but also National Maritime Museum), not on OCLC; North Sea: not on Copac or OCLC (but we have located copies at the NMM and Library of Congress). These painstaking, densely mapped charts, were a remarkable labour of love and give an exceptional overview of the key areas of British commitment in the Great War.

        Ogni sviatogo Dominika: p'esa [The Fires of St. Dominic]

      Berlin: Knigoizdatel'stvo "Slovo", 1922. Octavo (19.5 × 14.5 cm). Original pictorial wrappers by Aleksandr Arnshtam; 58, [2] pp. About very good; occasional light soil to corners; rear wrapper somewhat creased. First edition of Russian modernist and dystopian writer Evgenii Zamyatin's play, which is set in sixteenth-century Spain during the Inquisition. Zamyatin returned to Russia shortly before the October Revolution after working abroad for many years, and he wrote numerous short stories during the following years, as well as teaching courses on Russian literature. By the early 1920s he was one of the most well-known but also controversial writers. The present work, Zamyatin's only play, was recognized by contemporaries as an allegory of the Soviet Cheka, or secret police. A short preface to the work notes that "Those who were convinced of their infallibility decided to drive all who disobeyed into their paradise by means of weapons and bonfires." Completed in 1920, the work was first published in 1922 by the Berlin émigré publishing house "Slovo" ("The Word"). A number of reviews took note of its anti-Soviet pathos and helped set off the long-running campaign against Zamyatin, who only left the Soviet Union in 1931, after personally petitioning Stalin for permission. With attractive drawn wrappers by Alexander Arnstam, a noted artist and graphic designer who had left Russia for Berlin in 1921. Savine 04597.

        Men I'm Not Married To [issued dos-a-dos with] Women I'm Not Married To.

      Garden City, New York: Doubleday, Page & Company, 1922 - Duodecimo, two titles bound dos-a-dos as issued. Original beige boards, titles and illustration in brown. With the dust jacket. Housed in a cloth slipcase. A near-fine copy, with the dust jacket bearing only tiny chips or splits to the ends and corners. First edition, first printing, a superb copy of Parker's scarce first book, inscribed by Parker, signed by Adams, and in the rare dust jacket. Men/Women I'm Not Married To was the first publication of New York satirist and poet Dorothy Parker (1893-1967), a collection of witty short stories published back-to-back with stories by Parker's fellow Algonquin Round Table co-founder, the columnist Franklin P. Adams (1881-1960). Parker's wry inscription reads, "To John Stuart Groves - this bit of a past that I thought blessedly forgotten - with best wishes from the far-from-proud author, Dorothy Parker, March, 1941". Groves was a book collector and had evidently sought out Parker with this copy of her first book, which is a considerable rarity inscribed. The Algonquin Round Table were a group of New York wits who met for daily lunches at the Algonquin Hotel for ten years from 1919 to 1929, and disseminated their wisecracks across the nation through the newspaper columns of the members. Notable figures associated with the Algonquin were Noel Coward, Edna Ferber, and Harpo Marx. We can trace no other inscribed copies of this title in auction records.
