        SIDDHARTHA. EINE INDISCHE DICHTUNG

      S. Fischer, Berlin 1922 - Thin octavo (5-3/4" x 8-3/4") bound in recent full rust morocco with gilt lettering on the front cover and on the spine label, retaining the publisher's heavy tan wraps with brown lettering on the front cover and blank on the rear; [1-8], 9-146, [-147], [1, blank], [2, publisher's ads].

It was made into a beautiful film in 1972 by Conrad Rooks. A Fine, bright copy beautifully bound [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Musique / Curiosa / Médecine] Important dossier, essentiellement manuscrit, sur les chansons françaises : chansons de salles de garde, chansons pour le bal de l'internat de 1922 et chansons populaires

      1922 - A) Fort dossier concernant la préparation du bal de l'internat de 1922, dont Pichon semble s'être particulièrement chargé : musique notée et/ou texte manuscrit des chansons des différents hôpitaux parisiens (par des mains multiples), lettres autographes de certains des internes en charge de l'organisation des différents cortèges, une lettre autographe signée de Raoul Kourilsky à propos de la mise en musique de la chanson de Pichon, notes autographes pour la préparation du cortège, imprimés divers, etc. ; B) un dossier intitulé "diverses miennes chansons médicales" comportant des chansons composées par Pichon (l'une avec Coty) : les chansons sont souvent longues, parfois à l'état de brouillon (21 pp. in-4 et 9 pp. in-8 ou in-12) ; C) un dossier intitulé "service Quénu 1910/11" : une longue suite de chansons écrites à plusieurs mains sur le service du professeur Edouard Quénu (hôpital Cochin) (28 pp. in-4 dont 1 1/2 pp. de la main de Pichon, 1 dessin signé Détourbe), à la suite : 3 ff. de chansons notées par Pichon ; D) 4 dossiers de chansons notées ou écrites par Pichon dans les différents hôpitaux qu'il a fréquentés : Salpêtrière, Trousseau, Tenon, Enfans malades (une quarantaine de pages in-4 à in-12) ; E) chansons écrites par Pichon ou certains de ses amis (certaines signées Coty ou Raoul Chapelain) : une trentaine de pages in-4 à in-12 auxquelles on joint un ensemble de poèmes non paillards composés en l'honneur de Pichon par ses amis (certaines signatures illisibles, certains non signés) ; F) un ensemble de chansons populaires notées par Pichon, Jacques Damourette ou Hélène Pichon ainsi que des cahiers concernant les proverbes (environ 80 pp. grand in-4 à in-8) ; G) divers documents dont le menu des Enfans malades de 1924 illustré par Bonamy et plusieurs portraits de Pichon à la mine de plomb dont deux signés Pazzi. Personnage d'une grande richesse, d'une infinie curiosité et très complexe, Edouard Pichon est un contemporain et - par son intérêt pour le langage - un précurseur de Lacan, qui lui reprendra - entre autres - le concept de forclusion. Il est l'un des membres fondateurs du groupe de L'Evolution psychiatrique et de la Société Psychanalytique de Paris (dont il fut président de 1935 à 1937). Avec son oncle Jacques Damourette, il est l'auteur d'un monumental Essai de Grammaire française dont la publication s'étala sur près de 30 ans. Il fut également fervent maurrassien tout en étant dreyfusard, et le gendre de Pierre Janet sans être janetien. (Voir à son sujet, E. Roudinesco, Histoire de la psychanalyse en France, t. 1, pp. 297-320). Nota : ce document ne pourra être exporté en dehors de l'Union Européenne sans autorisation préalable du ministère de la Culture, formalité pouvant prendre plusieurs jours.

"A brilliant novella." - Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 3-170. The illustrations are no less remarkable than the text.

        Autograph musical quotation signed "Alexander Zemlinsky" and inscribed.

      - Zemlinsky composed the Lyrische Symphonie between 1922-1923. It was first performed in Prague on June 4, 1924 under the composer's direction and is his best-known work.An Austrian composer and conductor, "closely linked to the Second Viennese School (Schoenberg was his pupil), Zemlinsky was no outright revolutionary. While undisputedly a conductor of the first rank and an interpreter of integrity, he lacked ‘star quality’ and was overshadowed by more domineering personalities. His music is distinguished by an almost overpowering emotional intensity. It took several decades before it became known and began to be appreciated." Antony Beaumont in Grove Music Online. In black ink. Ca. 98 x 126 mm., laid down to white cardboard mount, overall size ca. 116 x 146 mm. Two measures from the Lyrische Symphonie, Op. 18, notated in treble clef on one hand-drawn staff. With autograph titling "Lyr. Symphonie."Slightly browned; creased at central fold and lower right corner; minor staining and smudging at upper edge, slightly affecting inscription; trimmed, with some wear to edges, not affecting text.

        RIO DE JANEIRO: PLANTA DA CIDADE DO RIO DE JANEIRO ORGANIZADA COM OS ELEMENTOS DO CADASTRO TECHNICO-IMMOBILIARIO DO CORRETOR MILTON FERREIRA DE CARVALHO ESPECIALMENTE PARA O GUIA REX INDICADOR GERAL DO RIO DE JANEIRO.

      - This highly attractive map, designed in the contemporary Art Deco style, depicts Rio de Janeiro a splendid time in the city’s history, when it came into its own as one of the world’s great tourist and cultural centres. The map is orientated to the southeast, with the old city, the business and government centre, in the lower right, along the shores of Guanabara Bay, with the fast growing Ipanema and Leblon districts to the upper left. Rio, which in 1922 had population of around 1.13 million (as opposed to around 6 million in the city proper today, with a metro area of 12 million), was commencing a period of dramatic growth and change. Massive land reclamation schemes were underway, with the southern extension to the downtown largely complete, while the dotted lines of the quays to the north in Guanabara Bay, indicate that the port extension was still in the planning stages. High commodity prices and a bustling post-WW1 global economy had led to unprecedented prosperity of Rio, which was attracting the attention of international businesses and high-end tourists. This, in turn, was supporting a cultural flowering in the city. The 3rd South American Football championship (forerunner to the "Copa") was held in Rio in 1919 (and won by Brazil). The Federal University of Rio was founded in 1920, while the National Historical Museum of Brazil was opened in the city in 1922. The O Globo newspaper would begin publication in 1925. Meanwhile, the cultural and tourist centre of the city was shifting south from the downtown to the Zona Sul, with the physical barrier of the hills being negated by the construction of the tunnel between Botafogo and Copacabana Beach, as shown on the map. This opened Copacabana to becoming on of the world’s most desirable and stylish destinations, with the Copacabana Palace hotel being opened in August 1923, made famous by its appearance in the movie Flying Down to Rio (1933). The world’s wealthiest and most sophisticated travellers were flocking to the city, spurring the establishment of elegant restaurant, cafes and nightclubs. The legendary airship the Graf Zeppelin would make its first visit to Rio in 1930, followed by regular service connecting the city to Europe and New York, from 1932. The famous statue entitled Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer) would come to grace the top of the Corcovado in 1931. The map was sponsored by a major real-estate agent Milton Ferreira de Carvalho, who advertised numerous estates and villas in desirable parts of the city. The property for sale is heightened in red. Overall an elegant and authentic large scale view of Rio during its historic apogee.

William Butler Yeats was perhaps the greatest poet of the late 19th and early 20th century. His signature is like magic. About William Butler Yeats (from Wikipedia): ****** William Butler Yeats (13 June 1865 - 28 January 1939) was an Irish poet and one of the foremost figures of 20th century literature. A pillar of both the Irish and British literary establishments, in his later years he served as an Irish Senator for two terms. Yeats was a driving force behind the Irish Literary Revival and, along with Lady Gregory, Edward Martyn, and others, founded the Abbey Theatre, where he served as its chief during its early years. In 1923 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature as the first Irishman so honored for what the Nobel Committee described as "inspired poetry, which in a highly artistic form gives expression to the spirit of a whole nation." Yeats is generally considered one of the few writers who completed their greatest works after being awarded the Nobel Prize.******

        Ebony and Crystal Poems in Verse and Prose

      Auburn Journal, Auburn, CA 1922 - Limited to 500 copies, this is number 106, signed on the limitation page by the author. This copy has also been signed by the author, with an inscription, on the title page. This copy is in Very Good+ condition. The book and its contents are in mostly clean, bright condition. The red cloth covers have some light spotting and there is a noticeable strip of fading to the front foredge. The text pages are clean and bright. The title page and limitation pages are noticeably toned. There is some light cracking to the front inner hinge. "As a poet, Smith is grouped with the West Coast Romantics alongside Ambrose Bierce, Joaquin Miller, Sterling, Nora May French, and remembered as "The Last of the Great Romantics" and "The Bard of Auburn". Smith was one of "the big three of Weird Tales, along with Robert E. Howard and H. P. Lovecraft", where some readers objected to his morbidness and violation of pulp traditions. It has been said of him that "nobody since Poe has so loved a well-rotted corpse." He was a member of the Lovecraft circle, and Smith's literary friendship with Lovecraft lasted from 1922 until Lovecraft's death in 1937. His work is marked chiefly by an extraordinarily wide and ornate vocabulary, a cosmic perspective and a vein of sardonic and sometimes ribald humor." "Who of us care to be present at the accouchment of the immortal? I think that we so attend wo are first to take this book in our hands. A bold assertion, truly, and one demonstrable only in years remote from these." ; Signed by Author [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      The Double Dealer. Vol. IV, No. 21, September, 1922. 4to. Card wrappers, marred only by a touch or two of tiny miscellaneous blemishing and some light creasing to the top right-hand corner, impacting all leaves. A short staple-tear to the first leaf. Loose promotional inserts laid-in. A very good copy of a most uncommon periodical, this issue marks not only Toomer's first appearance in print, but also Thornton Wilder's (writing hear as Thornton N.Wilder, and contributing his short two-part vignette 'Sentences'), plus additional contributions from Edmund Wilson, Arthur Symons, Edward Sapir &c. 'The Double Dealer' was born in response to a 1917 essay by H.L.Mencken in which the author criticized the South for its lack of fine culture. Founded by Julius Weiss Friend, Basil Thompson, Albert Goldstein and John McClure, the New Orleans-based 'Double Dealer' published some of the very first print appearances of both Faulkner and Hemingway, and is also noted for publishing uncharacteristically high numbers of African-American and female writers. It ran monthly from January 1921 through May 1923, with irregular publications between November 1923 and May 1926, with a circulation of approximately 1,500 copies.. 1st Edition. Soft cover.

        Ulysses

      London: For the Egoist Press by John Rodker, 1922. The first English edition, printed in France. Bound in full blue morocco, raised bands, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, double gilt ruled to the front and rear panels, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. One of 2000 copies. Ownership copy of playwright and poet, socialist and politician Sam DeWitt, best known for having been barred from taking his seat in the New Your State Assembly in 1920, along with four others, after having been elected as a Socialist from his Bronx district. A colorful figure in New York leftist politics and the Bohemian scene in Greenwich Village, DeWitt owned and operated a company trading in used machinery in lower Manhattan, and published a number of books or poetry and several plays. He was a long-time friend of left wing writer Upton Sinclair. In Sinclair's muckraking novel The Jungle, published in 1906, one of the main characters, Nicolas Schliemann, is said to be based on Sam DeWitt. This copy bears his ownership signature where - in apparent reference to the "pornographic" nature of the book - De Witt has written "This is my book" below which he has sketched the male genitalia with "Ex" on one side, and "Libris" on the other, and then, below the sketch, his signature and his address in Bronx, NY. According to Slocum & Cahoon, of the 2000 copies of Ulysses from the first edition plates, approximately 500 were sent to America and subsequently burned by government censorship authorities. 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).

        ANNA PAVLOVA

      Paris: de Brunoff, 1922. No. 30 OF 325 COPIES of the French edition, signed by the editor, Maurice de Brunoff n. Hardcover. 343 x 260 mm (13 1/2 x 10 1/4"). 194 pp., [1] leaf (colophon). Translated into French by W. Petroff. No. 30 OF 325 COPIES of the French edition, signed by the editor, Maurice de Brunoff. Pleasing contemporary red (publisher's deluxe?) pebble-grain morocco, upper cover with gilt lettering and calligraphic flourish, raised bands, spine panels with gilt sultana centerpiece, gilt titling, mustard yellow endpapers, edges untrimmed. In a modern marbled paper slipcase. With decorative engraved head- and tailpieces, 22 plates (with tissue guards), as called for, and more than 50 illustrations in the text. Two tiny nicks on back cover, one plate with light marginal foxing, otherwise only the most trivial imperfections; A VERY FINE COPY with especially clean and fresh leaves and in an unworn, lustrous binding. This is an attractively produced examination of the career of the great prima ballerina Anna Pavlova (1881-1931), who was at the height of her fame when it was published. Written by the leading St. Petersburg critic Valerian Svetloff, it begins with a background discussion of classical ballet, followed by accounts of Pavlova's classical training and performances in Imperial Russia, her breakthrough role in "Giselle" (which prompted her promotion to prima ballerina), and her work with her most important collaborator, the choreographer Michel Fokine. There is a brief autobiography by the dancer herself, and a listing of her repertoire of ballets and roles. The work is lavishly illustrated with photographs of the ballerina in various roles, among them her signature "Dying Swan," created for her by Fokine. There are also color illustrations of costumes and sets created by Leon Bakst and other noted designers. Pavlova was the first prima ballerina to form her own company and tour the world, and she became one of the first international superstars. This lavish production is testament to her fame and global appeal.
