      1922. JOYCE, James. Ulysses. [xii], 732, [6] pp. 4to., 237 x 195 mm, in the original blue wrappers, in a cloth chemise and slip case. Paris: Shakespeare and Co., 1922. |~||~||~||~||~| |~||~||~||~| First Edition, one of 750 copies on handmade paper, from a total edition of 1000 copies, this being number 844. "Ulysses - unquestionably one of the most outstanding novels in the English language and the text most expressive of the psyche of modern man and woman - tells the sadly comic story of Leopold Bloom, a good man led by love, attempting to come to terms with loss: the deaths of his son and of his father, the departure of his daughter from home, the passing of his youth and the adultery of his wife Marion (called Molly). Prefaced to this tale is another story, that of a sombre and intense young man, Stephen Dedalus, an aspiring writer bogged down in the stasis of Dublin life, in mourning for his mother and with little hope for the future. The paths of these two men cross, briefly join, and then part. Stephen Dedalus walks into eternity along the lane at the rear of Eccles Street, and Leopold Bloom lays himself down to sleep beside the wife (his head by her feet, his feet by her head) on the recently desecrated marital bed" (Danis Rose, preface to his edition of Ulysses, Picador Press, 1997, p. v). A landmark of English Literature, Ulysses represents the Birth of Modernism. "...and his heart was going like mad and yes I said yes I will Yes." A fine unrestored copy with a little wear to the foot of the spine, and some rubbing, but far superior to most copies encountered. Slocum & Cahoon 17. Cyril Connolly, One Hundred Modern Books 42.

        Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus

      London: Kegan Paul, Trench, Trübner & Co, Ltd,, 1922. With an introduction by Bertrand Russell, F.R.S. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine gilt. Housed in a quarter morocco solander box made by the Chelsea Bindery. Warmly inscribed on the front free endpaper in Wittgenstein's hand (see below), and annotated throughout in pencil by his friend Ludwig Hänsel. Cloth joints split, spine glued along book block, hinges entirely sound. Preserved in a custom made box. First edition in the English language, first impression, early issue (without adverts at end), of one of the philosophical masterpieces of the 20th century, the inspiration for the Cambridge school of analysis of the inter-war years and of the logical positivism of the Vienna circle. Originally published in German the preceding year under the title Logisch-Philosophische Abhandlung, this edition has the English translation facing the original German text. Wittgenstein had been unable to make corrections to the original German edition, and this English-German edition, with the translation supplied by C. K. Ogden and Frank Plumpton Ramsey, is considered the official version. Inscribed by Wittgenstein on the front free endpaper verso opposite the half title "Zur freundlichen Erinnerung an Deinen Wittgenstein. Der Einband ist auf der Reise etwas schäbig geworden und entspricht jetzt so ungefähr dem Inhalt" (As an affectionate reminder of your Wittgenstein. The cover has become a bit shabby on the trip and now more or less matches the content). Ludwig Wittgenstein, then aged 25, enlisted for military service on 7 August 1914, and served variously in an artillery workshop (1914), an artillery repair platoon (1915), and as part of a howitzer regiment (1916?-17). In 1918, he was sent to the southern front, where at the end of the year he was taken prisoner by the Italians. "In January [1919] he is transferred to a POW camp at Cassino. On the way there he makes friends with the sculptor Michael Drobil and two schoolteachers, Ludwig Hänsel and Franz Parak. With the completion of the Abhandlung (the German manuscript, published in English as Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus), Wittgenstein experiences for himself what it means to lose one's vocation, since he believes that he has now exhausted the possibilities for his work on philosophy. He therefore decides, no doubt influenced by his new friends, to become a teacher on his release from captivity" (Wiener Ausgabe, Introduction, 1993, p. 22). Wittgenstein first met Ludwig Hänsel in October 1918 in Prisoner of War camp at Como. "Wittgenstein got to know Hänsel after attending a class on logic that Hänsel was giving to prisoners who hoped upon release to train as teachers. This led to regular discussions between them, during which Wittgenstein led Hänsel through the elements of symbolic logic and explained the ideas of the Tractatus to him. They also read Kant's Critique of Pure Reason together" (Monk, Ludwig Wittgenstein, The Duty of Genius, p. 158). Only three years Wittgenstein's senior, Ludwig Hänsel (1886?-1959) was born in Hallein, Austria, and studied German, French and philosophy at Graz before becoming a teacher in 1913. Like Wittgenstein, he signed up in 1914 and (like Wittgenstein) served in Poland, Galicia, and Italy. During the time spent together as prisoners, Hänsel and Wittgenstein often discussed philosophy. They read Kant's Critique of Pure Reason and Augustine's Confessions together, and the works of Dostoevsky (see Monk, p. 158). Wittgenstein introduced Hänsel to modern logic, and allowed Hänsel to read the Abhandlung. Their correspondence began immediately after the War (the first letter from Wittgenstein dates from September 1919) and lasted until Wittgenstein's death in 1951. Hänsel was one of Wittgenstein's closest friends in those postwar years, providing encouragement and support to Wittgenstein the trainee teacher and acting as a mediator between Wittgenstein and his family, from whom he had then distanced himself. They saw each other often, discussing educational matters, but also philosophy. "As a learned Hofrat Direktor, Hänsel maintained a keen interest in the subject, and in his lifetime published some twenty articles on philosophical subjects (mostly ethics)'"(ibid., p. 189). When Wittgenstein took up his first teaching post, Hänsel continued his role as support and sounding board; he visited Wittgenstein regularly and supplied him with reading books for his pupils. It was Hänsel who encouraged Wittgenstein to publish his Wörterbuch für Volksschulen (1926), aside from the Tractatus, the only other book to appear in his lifetime. It was no doubt on one of these visits that Wittgenstein presented his friend with the book; a remarkable copy, the only signed example we have encountered in over thirty years, warmly inscribed by Wittgenstein.

      S. Fischer, Berlin 1922 - Thin octavo (5-3/4" x 8-3/4") bound in the publisher's heavy brown wraps with black lettering on the front cover and a later cloth tape hand-lettered spine; [1-8], 9-146, [-147], [1, blank], [2, publisher's ads]. The true First Edition with the text in German of one of this Nobel Prize winner's two famous and important novels, the other being of course STEPPENWOLF. This copy is SIGNED in ink by the author with a brief inscription on the front endpaper. Hesse based this book on the early life of Gautama Buddha. The story of a son rebelling against his father's teaching and traditions and eventually finding true enlightenment resonated with those maturing in the 1960s and 1970s making this title something of a cult classic. It was made into a beautiful film in 1972 by Conrad Rooks. George Goetz was a Danish Jew living in Sweden because of persecution. He maintained a correspondence with Hesse, only recently discovered, from 1939 to 1951. Their letters discussed everything from the trivial to Hesse's work and its place in Nazi Germany. One common point of interest was the German-Jewish philosopher Constantin Brunner (Goetz would later become President of International Constantin Brunner Institute.). This book as well as several other titles inscribed to Goetz were discovered with the letters and is now being offered for public sale for the first time. Owner name of George Goetz dated 1939 on the front endpaper well above Hesse's inscription with a small stain at the bottom corner well below Hesse's inscription. A few marginal pencil notations, likely by Goetz. Some aging to the paper but at least Very Good and very scarce when signed [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        The Worst Journey in the World Antarctic 1910-1913

      New York:: Doran,. 1922.. First American edition. The 1st American edition, published the same year as the 1st UK edition, printed in the UK but without the 10 panoramic plates. A classic of Antarctic literature, it is an account of Scott's last Antarctic Expedition from 1910-13. Hearing of Scott's proposed 2nd expedition, Cherry-Garrard volunteered his services to Dr. Wilson, whom he had met previously. "In an expedition every member of which was a specialist, he was accepted by Scott on Wilson's recommendation alone & duly enlisted as 'assistant zoologist". Yet from the outset, despite his youth and inexperience, he won the affectionate regard of his more seasoned comrades, and before the close of the expedition had more sledge-journeys to his credit than any other surviving member... Cherry-Garrard was warmly commended by Scott for his efficiency and unselfishness as a sledger and tent-mate. In the comparative comfort of life at base, he edited the South Polar Times... Wilson chose Bowers and Cherry-Garrard -- 'the pick of the sledging element' (Scott) -- as his companions for a Winter Journey in 1911 to the rookery of the Emperor Penguin at Cape Crozier, an exploit which is still without parallel in the annals of polar exploration. On their return 5 weeks later, Scott described their journey as 'the hardest that has ever been made' -- a phrase which later suggested to Cherry- Garrard the title of his narrative. The book is widely regarded as the most readable of all the Antarctic literature. Oddly, not in Spence (see Spence 277 for 1st UK). 2 vols. 8vo, lxiv, 300 pp (4), 30 ills & 4 maps (&) 301-585 pp, 28 ills & 1 map. Original linen spine & gray papered boards, title label on spine. Very tight and clean copies, with a couple of minor marks on the spines, spine labels cracked, slightly rubbed at extremes. Very small neat owner signature, R. L. Langenheim Jr. inside front boards.

        Sample Book of Chinese Handmade Lace

      An early twentieth century East Asian trade sample book containing 107 original lace samples laid down on both sides of 38 green card leaves which have been bound in accordian style in black watered silk covered boards, measuring 22.2 x 15.2cm. Each sample is 12.5 cms wide with heights varying from The company's paper label on the upper cover reads "Mitsui Bussan Kaisha Limited/ Melbourne, Australia". Below the title there are five sections two of have been annotated in ink in a neat hand. They read: Article: Lace (Chinese, Hand-made) and "Ref. to our Letter dated Jan 25th, 1922." The boards are worn at edges particularly at the corners. Six samples are not present and it is seems very possible that these samples might have been removed by a salesman at Mitsui Bussan Kaisha as samples of style no longer available. Fortunately the missing samples are confined to a single side of the extended binding making it possible to open out the binding just over 2.7 metres to show a striking range of 67 samples of Chinese lace. A little occasional damage to the card mounts very neatly repaired. An exceptional and most unusual sample book. .

        Love & Friendship and Other Early Works [Love and Friendship] [Love and Freindship; Lesley Castle; The History of England; Collection of Letters, Scraps]

      New York: Frederick A. Stokes Company , 1922. First edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/very good. A Near Fine copy of the first American edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original cloth (spine quite mildly sunned, quite light wear to the spine ends and corners, age toning to pages -- as usual, modest offsetting and spotting to the endpapers and pastedowns, expected darkening to the closed page block's top edge) in a Very Good + decorated cloth dust jacket (spine sunned, some wear with light loss to the spine ends and corners, a touch of light edge fraying), with Friendship misspelled as "FREINDSHIP" both on the dust jacket label and on the book spine label, as well as being wrongly spelled on the half-title, title page, and Table of Contents as well); the first American edition of the first book publication of this Jane Austen juvenilia, the endpapers of which feature drawings by Jane Austen's sister Cassandra made for "The History of England". Notably, Jane Austen's story "Love and Freindship" mocked novels of sensibility, and her "The History of England" parodied popular historical writing, all revealing a wit and perception which came to maturity in her novels. We seldom see copies of this book --considered an Austen first edition -- in the dust jacket, and have never seen a copy in a condition as nice as is this one. A Very Good + to Near Fine copy.

      London: Her Majesty's Stationery Office,, 1922. 2 volumes, octavo.

During the war he was mentioned in despatches nine times, and received honours from France, Italy and the United States, picking up the sobriquet "Tiger Mac" on account of his ferocious energy and attention to detail.
