        The Game. A Monthly Magazine

      Ditchling: St. Dominic's Press 12mo (18 cm; 7"). Vol. V. 118 pp.. 1922 The complete volume for 1922. "The Game was primarily an organ for the Distributist propaganda of [H.D.C.] Pepler, [Eric] Gill, and [Edward] Johnston. . . . No statement of the magazine's printing order or circulation was ever issued, but it would seem safe to say that not more than 200 copies were printed of any number. . . . The contents of The Game were mostly written by Pepler and Gill" (Sewell, p. 36). Only 34 issues of this periodical were produced between 1916 and 1923. A prime feature of this volume is that => David Jones provided a set of wood-engravings illustrating the Ten Commandments for the covers of the issues for February through November. Eric Gill's verse and prose contributions to this volume are "Idiocy or Ill-Will," "Quae ex veritate bonoque," "Caelum et Terra transibunt," and "Ireland Revisited." Provenance: Interesting bookplate of the "Catholic Art Association"; ownership signature of A. Graham Carey (dated February 10, 1926). Gill later designed a bookplate for Carey and his wife, Elizabeth Foster Carey. Original quarter linen, very good. Some glue action on endpapers and extending to lower margins of adjoining leaves. A handsome copy of a handsome thing.

        LETTER FROM NEILL TO REILLY & LEE WITH RESPONSE

      - NEILL,JOHN R. LETTER FROM NEILL TO REILLY & LEE WITH RESPONSE. This is a wonderful handwritten letter to Mr. Reilly of Reilly and Lee with Reilly's response typed on the side. Neill's letter is dated Jan. 12, 1922 and reads: "Dear F.K. Reilly - Am sending today the last lot of drawings, completing the illustrations for Kabumpo in Oz. Incidentally I would like to tell you how much I enjoyed reading the mss. and making the pictures. After illustrating about seventeen Oz books I think it worthwhile to let you know this with my congratulations on having secured an author of such superior qualifications to continue the work of supplying the Oz books. Every feature of the child appeal is handled with the greatest skill. The whimsical humor the interest and the zip of the book makes me think it one of the very best Oz books so far. Sincerely Jno R. Neill." Reilly writes a typed response dated March 4th 1922: " Dear John, Packages of drawings for Children's Poems received O.K. They are satisfactory although I think they are uneven in merit; some are much better than others. Send in your bill and we we'll take care of you. With best regards, Very cordially, F.K. Reilly."

        My Escape from Donington Hall

      London: John Lane, The Bodley Head Ltd.,, 1922. Preceded by an Account of the Siege of Kiao-Chow in 1914. Translated by Pauline de Chary. Octavo. Original sage green cloth, title gilt to the spine, blind panel to the upper board. With the dust jacket. Portrait frontispiece and 3 other plates. A little bumped at the extremities, light toning, foxing to the fore-edge, else very good min slightly creased and tattered jacket, lacking part of the tail of the spine, but pictorially and textually complete on the upper panel. First edition in English, first published in Berlin in 1916 under the title Die Abenteuer des Fliegers von Tsingtau, meine Erlebnisse in drei Erdteilen. "Exotic, fascinating account of a German airman who flew reconnaissance missions over the German colony of Tsingtao, China, until the enclave fell in 1915. He then escaped across China and by ship to the United States, and was captured by the British on his way back to Europe" (Lengel). Excellent association copy, inscribed by Plüschow on the front pastedown; "To Mr. Edward McDonnell sincerely, Günther Plüschow ex prisoner of war!, Berlin, Sept. 1922." Tipped in are two personal photographs taken of the German flier when he was escaping incognito on the Pacific Mail Steamer Company's Magnolia to Honolulu, annotated by McDonnell with further details of their encounter, and with further pencilled notes on the adjacent pages relating to the voyage. Additionally a two-page autograph letter signed on the stationery of his Berlin garage - Gunther Plüschow Automobil- und Motoren-Reparatur-Werkstätten - thanking McDonnell for an earlier letter, and bemoaning the current situation in Germany; "Time is hard for us in Germany, especially for us earlier naval officers who had to leave the wide blue sea. But we don't lose our good cheer … I made up a small motor-car factory and have to see how to make best of life. The prices for every thing here in Berlin are horribly [sic.] The dollar 1700 Marks. Isn't it foolish?" Small original portrait photograph of Plûschow in dress uniform loosely inserted in an envelope - "Raffles Hotel, Singapore" - tipped onto the front free endpaper, annotated verso; "Compare this with picture on page 230!" and signed beneath. The image referred to, which repeats on the jacket, shows him "in the disguise of a dock labourer". Also a three-page letter from Alfred M. Brace, a fellow passenger on the Magnolia who features in one of the photographs with Plüschow, to McDonnell, thanking him for a copy of the snap-shot and recounting his experiences after their meeting. At the time of their encounter Brace was an Associated Press correspondent in Asia, subsequently driving ambulances on the Western Front, in Serbia and Albania, before becoming Paris correspondent of the New York Herald, and then New York Tribune. At the time of writing in 1920 he was "publishing a Paris directory and in general publicity". Loosely inserted contemporary colour post-card of the Magnolia, a monochrome portrait card of Plüschow, and a contemporary German card of Donington Hall. A wonderfully allusive association.

        Sodome et Gomorrhe II EDITION ORIGINALE ENVOI AUTOGRAPHE

      Paris: Nrf, 1922. Fine. Nrf, Paris 1922, 14,5x19,5cm, 3 volumes brochés sous coffret. - Original edition on the current paper. Precious autograph signed by the author Henri Massis on the first volume: "Vivid testimony of Marcel Proust sympathy" Henri Massis, attentive reader of Proust's work, devote two trials it. In The Drama of Marcel Proust, published in 1937, he is particularly interested in Sodom and Gomorrah and offers an analysis "bold and almost Freudian" of Proust's relationship to vice "alone with his fear of evil since he lost his mother [...] [Proust would write] to oppose the idea of the work, the idea of forfeiture. " In Chronicles, Paul Morand makes a beautiful tribute to the study: "There are a few weeks ago, Henri Massis published [...] a test that may be day to day work of Proust that the preface is Claudel that of Rimbaud; with this difference, however, that Claudel explores the sinner with less requirement of love. We watched how classical logic Henri Massis entered this Proustian thought that a labyrinth; his Christian explanation of the soul of the author of Sodom and Gomorrah look like this Cathedral of St. Thomas which amounts to Madras, isolated and bewildered in the middle of the eastern jungle. » The three volumes are presented in a full black morocco box, flat spine decorated boxes stamped cold-date queue, lined interior khaki lamb, cabinet signed Goy & Vilaine. Precious copy, complete in three volumes, volume V in search of lost time enriched sending an autograph signed by Marcel Proust, in a beautiful well established cabinet. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale sur papier courant. Précieux envoi autographe signé de Marcel Proust à Henri Massis sur le premier volume : « en témoignage de très vive sympathie Marcel Proust » Henri Massis, lecteur attentif de l'œuvre de Proust, consacrera deux essais à celle-ci. Dans Le Drame de Marcel Proust, publié en 1937, il s'intéresse particulièrement à Sodome et Gomorrhe et propose une analyse « audacieuse et quasi freudienne » de la relation de Proust au vice : « seul devant sa peur du mal depuis qu'il a perdu sa mère [...] [Proust écrirait] pour opposer à l'idée de l'œuvre, l'idée de déchéance ». Dans Chroniques, Paul Morand rend un bel hommage à cette étude : « Il y a quelques semaine à peine, Henri Massis publiait [...] un essai qui sera peut-être un jour à l'œuvre de Proust ce que la préface de Claudel est à celle de Rimbaud ; avec cette différence, toutefois, que Claudel se penche sur le pécheur avec moins d'exigence que d'amour. On a pu admirer avec quelle logique classique Henri Massis a pénétré dans cette pensée proustienne qui a forme de labyrinthe ; son explication chrétienne de l'âme de l'auteur de Sodome et Gomorrhe ressemble à cette cathédrale de Saint-Thomas qui s'élève à Madras, isolée et dépaysée au milieu de la jungle orientale. » Les trois volumes sont présentés dans un coffret en plein maroquin noir, dos lisse orné de caissons estampés à froid, date en queue, intérieur doublé d'agneau kaki, coffret signé Goy & Vilaine. Précieux exemplaire, complet en trois volumes, du tome V de à la recherche du temps perdu enrichi d'un envoi autographe signé de Marcel Proust, dans un superbe coffret parfaitement établi.

        DIE ARCHITECTURE DER HOCH-UND UNTERGRUNDBAHN IN BERLIN

      Der Zirkel,: Berlin:, 1922. Berlin: Der Zirkel, 1922. A profusely illustrated monograph on the first Berlin subway system, now referred to as the "U-Bahn." The system, which ran above and below ground, was built and operated by a private company, which inaugurated service in 1902 and continued until its sale to the city in 1929. Paul Wittig, who began his career as an architect, lead the company during this entire period. The first phase of development took place between 1897 and 1913. Wittig commissioned several architects for different parts of the system, but the Swedish architect Alfred Grenander was responsible for most of the notable design work. Grenader was employed on all types of structures, working predominantly in a Jugendstil fashion, although some neo-classical designs were also included. Wittig's massive and luxurious monograph celebrates the impressive accomplishments of the first phase of development at the point where work was about to resume again, but under much greater financial restraint. It provides impressive documentation of one of the most architecturally ambitious European public works projects of the early twentieth century. Scarce, OCLC locates only 8 copies, of which 4 in Germany and 3 in North America (Huntington, Michigan and Art Institute of Chicago).

        The Fauna of British India, Including Ceylon and Burma. Birds.

      - London: Taylor and Francis, 1922- 1930. Second edition, edited in part by Sir Arthur E. Shipley and published under the authority of the Secretary of State for India in Council, in eight volumes (pp. xxiii, 479, index; xxiii, 561, index; xx, 489, index, map; xxiv, 471, index; xxiii, 469, index; xxxv, bibliography, 499, index; viii, 484, synonymy; iv, 485- 801, corrections and additions, index). Large octavo (23 cm) in maroon pebbled cloth, gilt titles and decorations, decoration in blind; two colour frontispieces, 37 plates on card (thirty-three in full colour), several hundred b & w illustrations in text. Complete in eight volumes (or, if you like, seven-- with the seventh bound as two but continuously paginated). Unopened, a few slight rubs and abrasions to the peripheries. Birds was itself part of the general series Fauna of British India, including Ceylon and Burma which began publication in the early 1880’s at the urging of Darwin and Hooker, among others. The first edition of Birds under the editorship of W. T. Blanford appeared 1889- 1898. E. C. Stuart Baker, O.B.E (1864- 1925) is chiefly responsible for this much expanded and comprehensive second edition. One can do no better than to quote in part Wikipedia’s biographical sketch of Baker’s career who, at nineteen, entered the Indian Police Service: “He spent most of his career. in the Assam Police, rising to the rank of Inspector- General commanding the force. In 1911 he returned to England and took up the appointment of Chief Police Officer for the Port of London . until his retirement in 1925. After retirement he became Mayor of Croydon. He was an excellent tennis player and an enthusiastic big game hunter. He lost his left arm to a panther [in Assam], was tossed by a gaur and trampled by an Indian rhinoceros during various hunting expeditions. During his spare time he studied and collected the birds of India. He made a comprehensive collection of nearly 50, 000 Indian birds’ eggs, part of which he donated to the Natural History Museum. He also served on government advisory committees on the protection of birds and was from 1913 to 1936 honorary secretary and treasurer of the British Ornithologists’ Union.” Baker published five other books and many shorter studies on Indian ornithology and natural history generally. The Fauna of British India, including Ceylon and Burma. Birds, although much supplemented, is the standard reference on the subject. Unopened (you will need a paper knife), a near fine copy.

        Le Film 1914

      Paris: Clarte, 1922. First Edition. Wraps. Very Good. Unsettling Dada-esque cartoons to satiric text, mocking the lead-up to the war, the war itself and its aftermath. 4to. Oblong, 25 by 27 cm. Unpaginated, 51 pp. The imagery is blunt and highly economical; its impact is harrowing and disturbing. The images come across deliberately like pieces of a puzzle, with the text written out as if by a very thick nib to look almost like graffiti. Loforge assiduously avoids the pretty and polished as he is portraying the ugly underside of society throughout. His use of long hand to elucidate the imagery is in keeping with what other surrealists were doing at the time. Here and there letters are deliberately dropped from words as if to elude a censor.Heavy age toning, as per the cheap paper that was used. Otherwise, clean. A monumental work of statement art in book form.

      1 page of a bifolium. Octavo. Dated Mödling, near Vienna, June 17, 1922. With Schoenberg's address handstamped to upper left corner. In German (with translation). Schoenberg thanks Otto Freund, a banker in Prague, for immediately complying with his request to send money to Anton von Webern: "Without concern for the fact that he who gives soon gives twice, you have given the double amount—that is, fourfold—and you are announcing to mobilize others. That is very nice of you, and I am very glad to have taken the courage to turn to you [already] after such a recent acquaintance, and I see my trust rewarded in the most beautiful way." Creased at folds; hinged at upper edge with archival tape. . Unpublished (except for the incipit on the website of the Arnold Schönberg Center, Vienna). The present letter follows Schoenberg's first letter to Otto Freund, a banker in Prague, sent on June 9, 1922 (held at the Arnold Schönberg Center). In his earlier letter, Schoenberg had asked for finanical assistance for Anton von Webern, who at the time was in great financial need. Freund sent 250,000 Austrian crowns; see his letter of June 15, 1922 (at the Library of Congress).
