      (Yokohama Nursery Co.): Yokohama:, August 1922.. Yokohama: (Yokohama Nursery Co.) August 1922.. The Yokohama Nursery Company was one of the largest suppliers of Japanese lilies and other Japanese plants and bulbs to the Western nursery trade. Accompanying this color catalogue from the company is a color decorated price list giving the export company's British address at "Craven House Kingsway,/ London. W.C. 2". The catalogue itself is a handsome survival. " The Yokohama Nursery Company catalogues from the mid-1890s through the mid-1920s are impressive documents, written in English and beautifully illustrated with colored plates..." (ARNOLDIA 64/23, Del Tredici. " From Temple To Terrace" p. 4). Of the lilies themselves, there are 44 illustrated examples distributed at 3 or 4 to an oblong page over 12 plates. The list begins with Lilium auratum, then Lilium Henry1, Lilium tigrinum Fortunei Giganteum, etc., including Fritillaria kamchatensis and Thunbergii. The price list indicates size, case lots and costs per 100 bulbs. " Free London Wharf. Guaranteed Sound." The 12 plates of color lithographs in the text are in vibrant colors with brief captions identifying each variety. The separate price list features an attractive color illustration of lilies along the lower left half of the sheet. OCLC lists 7 copies in the U.S.; 1 in the U.K.Oblong folio (26.5 x 39 cm); (iv, including title and plate list) pp.+ 12 color lithographed plates illustrating 44 flowers; illustrated price list laid in.Original plain paper covers with cover title within color block design on upper cover; stabbed and tied; some minor soiling to covers; previous owner's name, " Cuningham"? with date of 1928 in ink on upper cover; a faint trace of faded old damping at upper corner of upper cover and, faintly, on top edge and corner of title page, not affecting text; some wrinkling to paper and a bit of thumb-soiling, corners bumped, but plates are rich in color and in very good condition; the mimeographed price list on thin Japanese stock has been folded in half and marked in color pencil on two lines.

        Circular[s]: Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States, Commandery of the State of New York. 1867-1922 [Eight Volumes]

      [Commandery of the State of New York], New York 1922 - The Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States, begun in Philadelphia in 1865, was modeled on the Society of the Cincinnati, and formed to protect the republic amid rumors of a plot to destroy the government after the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Among its members were Presidents Ulysses S. Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, Benjamin Harrison, and William McKinley. By 1899 it had over 8000 members which included nearly every officer of note. The New York Commandery was the second formed after Pennsylvania. This collection is a nearly complete run lacking perhaps a dozen and a half meeting and other notices (out of 1194) prior to 1879, otherwise complete through 1922, ending with the dedication of the Lincoln Memorial. Contains circulars, papers, and annual meeting notices (as well as a few unnumbered items such as letters, publication advertisements, etc). The meeting notices are nearly all signed, corrected, and annotated by the New York Commandery recorders; they were then sent to the Illinois Commandery for their records. Written in hand in the early volumes, and by stamp latter on, the disposition of each person seeking membership was noted; the first volume contains additional and extensive handwritten notes and a letter explaining the rejection of a candidate by Horatio King (1811-1897) who was Postmaster General of the United States under James Buchanan and the first recorder. A later volume contains a tipped in typed and signed letter, explaining an expulsion for "conduct unbecoming of an officer." Beginning in the first volume is the appearance of the first black bordered "In Memoriam" notice, usually four pages, with a biography of the deceased. These biographies will slowly come to make up the bulk of the circulars as the former officers passed away. A wealth of information and a very scarce collection, made irreplaceable by the annotations and corrections of the recorders. A very good set with the bookplate of the Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United States, Commandery of the State of Illinois on front pastedowns of most volumes, shadow of sticker on foot of most backstrips. spine ends and joints scuffed on most volumes, well bound, most circulars quite clean. Three quarter morocco over red boards, four raised bands ruled in gilt, gilt titles; one volume matching cloth [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      Berlin: Jüdischer Verlag. Exemplar des bedeutenden jüdischen Kritikers Ludwig Lewisohn mit zahlreichen Annotationen und Markierungen von seiner Hand / From the library of the jewish critic Ludwig Lewisohn with numerous markings and annotations from his own hand. The volumes worn and used. Binding of Volume I cleanly separating.. Drei Bände. Berlin, Jüdischer Verlag, 1922. 8°. 647, 619, 661 Seiten. Hardcover / Originales Leinen. Exemplar des bedeutenden jüdischen Kritikers Ludwig Lewisohn mit zahlreichen Annotationen und Markierungen von seiner Hand / From the library of the jewish critic Ludwig Lewisohn with numerous markings and annotations from his own hand. The volumes worn and used. Binding of Volume I cleanly separating. Ludwig Lewisohn (May 30, 1882, Berlin, Germany ?- December 31, 1955) was an American Jewish critic and novelist, perhaps known best for his novel The Island Within. He wrote several autobiographies, translated German literature and wrote the preface to the first English language edition of Otto Rank's seminal work, Art and Artist. He also authored several works on Judaica and Zionism. Lewisohn immigrated to the United States in 1890 with his parents. The family settled in Charleston, South Carolina. Though his mother was the daughter of a rabbi, the family converted to Christianity. In his youth, Lewisohn was an active Methodist. After graduating with honors from the College of Charleston, he went to Columbia University in 1902 to work on a doctorate. He received the degree of A.M. in 1903. In 1904 he was told by his advisers that a Jew would never be hired to teach English literature at an American university. The bitter irony in this advice led Lewisohn to return to Judaism and he became an outspoken critic of American Jewish assimilation. In 1948 Lewisohn was among the founding faculty members of Brandeis University, where he taught until his death. It was Lewisohn who first translated Franz Werfel's The Song of Bernadette into English. (Wikipedia)

        Christmas Card Album of Christmas Cards sent by Joseph Widener of Philadelphia, 1922-1934

      Philadelphia: Privately Printed, 1922. Hardcover. VG+ The whole enclosed in a luxurious cottom-lined box which needs repairs. Luxurious 3/4 leather with moderate gilt tooling on corners, edges and within the six spine compartments (formed from the 5 raised-bands). Heavy rag cotton paper with gilt top edge and untrimmed edges. 12 cards and 1 loose, unrelated etching. This fascinating album measures 18.5" x 16" x 2". It has plain endpapers. Within it are yearly Christmas cards sent from Joseph Widener to his unknown recipients, these likely being his own keepsakes. The engravings and prints showcase artwork (apparently from his own collection) and later racehorses (presumably from his own stables, 1933 and 1934). The card for 1931 is not present. All engravings are signed by the engraver: Devitt Welsh (1922, 23 and 24); Timothy Cole (1925, 27, 28, 29, 30); A. Witherspoon (color engraving, 1926); unknown engraver (1932). The size of the cards and etchings / images varies, with the 1925 by Timothy Cole being the largest. All were mounted at one time to individual pages, and those mounts have dried and most have come loose. All are in VG+ condition. Widener has signed all of the cards except for 1924. In addition, there is laid-in loose within the album an etching of William Penn published by the Historical Society of Pennsylvania dated 1877.

      Paris: Shakespeare & Co.,, 1922. Quarto. Original blue and white wrappers. Pale offsetting on half-title, inscription slightly bled, old glue remains beneath inscription presumably where bookplate removed, some small losses at ends of spine, larger along the lower rear joint, a few small nicks to edges, but an unsophisticated copy. First edition, first issue, one of 100 copies on Dutch handmade paper, this copy number 41, signed by Joyce on the limitation page. A fine association copy, owned by the novelist and editor Bryher who helped finance and support numerous other publishers, including Sylvia Beach. She also gave financial support to writers, including Joyce and Edith Sitwell, and counted among her circle of friends Gertrude Stein, Ernest Hemingway and Berenice Abbott. Provenance: Annie Winifred Ellerman (1894?-1983, remnants of bookplate), known as Bryher, novelist, poet, magazine editor, and companion to the poet Hilda Doolittle (H.D.). She and her husband at the time, Robert McAlmon, befriended Joyce in Paris in 1921 and helped finance publication of Ulysses, McAlmon also serving as Joyce's typist for sections of the manuscript. The bookplate was designed by George Plank (1883?-1965) using an Icelandic theme. Bryher travelled several times to Iceland, first in 1929, accompanied by H.D. and their friend Robert Herring, editor of a literary journal Bryher financed in the 1930s and 1940s, Life and Letters Today. His pencil initials also appear on the flyleaf. The bookplate was partially torn out by H.D. during a nervous breakdown in 1946, when she and Bryher were living at Lowndes Square, London; thence by descent to the present owner. The impact of Joyce's Ulysses was revolutionary in its own time, and the book continues to stand as the single most significant English language novel of the last century. The complexities of its formal structure, its linguistic inventiveness and its imaginative cohesion of historical sources have made Ulysses the most diligently studied work of modern literature in English. Cyril Connolly, while criticizing Joyce's "preference for language rather than people," nevertheless could not reject the novel's immense intellectual weight: "somehow it does achieve greatness like a ruined temple soaring from a jungle ?- and should be judged perhaps as a poem, a festival of the imagination." The first edition of Ulysses was divided into three issues, in imitation of French practice. The first 100 copies on Dutch paper were signed by Joyce; the second 150 copies were in large paper format, though on a lesser grade of paper, and unsigned; the remaining 750 copies were on smaller and least expensive stock of paper, again unsigned. The various issues did not arrive at Sylvia Beach's bookshop in strict order, and Sylvia Beach's notebook recording copies sold up to 1 July 1922 does not list this copy as sold by that date.

Despite a lavish production, and the choreography of Marius Petipa, it was not well-received, the critics and the public alike finding the music too "symphonic". It wasn't until 1921, when the Russian impressario Serge Diaghilev brought together Leon Bakst to design the sets and the costumes, and Igor Stravinsky to orchestrate the music, that the ballet was truly appreciated. Bakst's designs, in particular, were revolutionary: "Bakst's greatest claim to theatrical glory lies in his feeling for synthesis, in his impeccable instinct for harmony, which blends the innumerable elements of the performance into one, single, coherent, whole" (from Levinson's Preface). The front cover of this copy has detached, but is present. The rear hinge is weak but holding. Spine paper absent and stitching is shaken but holding nicely. No loose pages and all tissue guards are present. The plates, and the lithograph, are unblemished. C'est magnifique! .

      FREUD, TOM SEIDMANN. (FREUD,TOM SEIDMANN)illus. SEFER HADVARIM [A BOOK OF THINGS] [by] H.N. Bailik. Berlin: Ophir 1922. Square 8 1/4", cloth backed pictorial boards, some cover soil, tips rubbed and ribbing at inner hinges else an unusually clean, tight and VG+ copy. 1st edition of Freud's first book published by Ophir. There are 16 poems by Bialik and 16 striking full page hand-colored illustrations by Freud. Freud, whose real name was Martha Gertrude Freud, adopted the name "Tom" at age 15. She was the niece of Sigmund Freud and an innovator in early education in Germany. When Hitler came to power, her books were banned because of her Jewish heritage. That is why it is difficult to find complete copies of her later novelty books, but it is rarer still to find any copy of this picture book by her. In the introduction to the reproduction of Ten Fairytales done by the Israel Museum, it is explained that Freud married Jankew Seidmann in 1921 and he, along with Bialik, was a partner in the new publishing firm Ophir. "Clearly, all three partners involved in the venture keenly felt that they were pioneering in the creation of new, excellent Hebrew books for the young." Sadly this is one of only 2 books published by them before they broke up. A real rarity and a nice copy.

      New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1922 First edition, first printing, first state, with "Supposing Purdy and I" and "to ruin my fellow human" to page 49. One of 9,500 copies. Inscribed by Lewis on the front free endpaper: "To N. N. Wallack / Sinclair Lewis / Washington / Feb. 24, 1938". Publisher's blue cloth, stamped in orange; in the original blue and white dust jacket. Book near fine or better, with a hint of faint toning to the spine ends, Wallack's bookplate to the front pastedown, else fine; unclipped dust jacket, with professional restoration to strengthen to what Pastore calls the "absurdly fragile dust jacket" and repair the losses to the spine ends and front panel, some minor toning to the spine, light soiling to the front panel. Overall, a very good and attractive copy. Pastore 8. Lewis inscribed this copy of Babbitt to notable book collector Nathan N. Wallack from Washington, D.C. Babbitt, is Lewis' eighth novel that and established his reputation as a major American author. Just as Main Street (1920) criticized romantic conceptions of American small-town life, Babbitt satirizes urban life in America in the 1920s. Specifically, it tells the story of George F. Babbitt, a "hustling, prosperous real estate broker" in the fictional city of Zenith. An immediate bestseller, Babbitt's popularity was such that "babbitt" became a neologism for a person or businessman who unquestioningly conforms to middle-class standards of living. Notably, Babbitt played a significant role in Lewis' being awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1930, making him the first American author to win the prestigious honor.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included.

      1922. [PHOTO ALBUM - SIBERIAN EXPEDITION]. TWO ALBUMS OF 242 IMAGES OF THE SIBERIAN EXPEDITION, CIRCA 1920, AND 16 POSTCARDS Album 1 Patterned cloth , with a printed dancer pattern, over flexible boards, 27 x 36 cm, cord tie, a.e.g. 86 photos mounted on [12] ff. The photos range in size from 6 x 4 cm up to 10.5 x 15 cm, though most are somewhere in between, around 14 x 8.5 cm. Included are five panoramic views, 27 x 8.5 cm, that are formed by butting two photographs. The first four pages have Japanese captions written on the mount. Fourteen photos have Japanese captions printed within the image, and five photos have Russian captions printed within the image. Laid-in are 15 blank postcards, 9 x 14 cm, showing scenes from the expedition and a map. Nine in color plus six black and white. Album 2 Padded silk, woven with a cloud and dragon pattern, over boards, 27 x 35 cm, cord tie, a.e.g. 156 photos mounted on [20] ff. The majority of the photos are 8.5 x 13.5 cm, with a couple of larger photos that measure 14 x 19.5 cm, and three 27 x 8.5 panoramas formed by butting two photos together. 50 photos have Japanese captions printed within the image, while two others have Russian captions printed within the image, and another two are captioned by hand in Russian. These two albums contain photographs taken around the time of the Allied Siberian Expedition (1918- 1922). One depicts scenes of home life of local (presumably White) Russian people around Vladivostok and interaction with Japanese troops. This is the "soft" album, perhaps suitable for showing to civilians, to ladies, to the public. The other concentrates on Japanese military involvement in the Intervention and on the realities of life in Siberia during that turbulent period. There are scenes of disease, of starvation, of brutal death - both military and civilian, men and woman. This is the "hard" album that speaks to the bleak winter and even more bleak chaos and misery. It includes scenes of troop movement along the Siberian Railway with several images of sabotage and battlefield aftermath.

        Les Malheurs des Immortels by Paul Eluard and Max Ernst

      1922. ERNST, Max. Les Malheurs des Immortels. By Paul Eluard and Max Ernst. 43, [1] pp. Illustrated with 21 collages by Max Ernst. 4to., 250 x 193 mm, bound in original publisher's printed wrappers. Preserved in a new black cloth box with gilt leather label. Paris: Librairie Six, 1922. First Edition of Max Ernst's second use of Surrealist collage in a book (following Repetitions issued earlier in 1922). Les Malheurs des Immortels also was his second collaboration with the poet Paul Eluard, who wrote the Surrealist prose poems in a collaboration with Ernst. For Repetitions the text was exclusively Eluard's, and it was Eluard who chose the collages of Ernst that he felt best matched his surrealist text. As a testimony to its significance, Les Malheurs des Immor-tels has been reissued several times, most notably by the Black Sun Press. This is an unusually fine copy, with minimal soiling to the fragile white wrappers. The limitation, although unspecified, must have been very small. Max Ernst: Beyond Surrealism 15.

        Jacob's Room

      Richmond: Leonard and Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press,, 1922. Octavo. Original crocus-yellow cloth, printed paper spine label. With the dust jacket designed by Vanessa Bell. Housed in a black quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Cloth soiled and darkened, label rubbed and chipped, short tear to lower joint at head, inner hinges cracked, an artist's copy in the chipped jacket that is dust-soiled, lacks the upper portion of the spine, and has the rear panel detached. First edition, first impression, presentation copy to Vanessa Bell, inscribed by the author on publication: "Vanessa Bell from V.W. Oct. 1922". An exceptional association copy: Jacob's Room was the first of VW's books for which Vanessa Bell designed the dust jacket, and the text represents VW's attempt to do in fictional form what her sister had been doing with her paintings for the past decade. Jacob's Room does not carry a formal dedication, but given the collaboration between the sisters in its design and the identity of their artistic aims, this might be regarded as the de facto dedication copy. "Woolf's family portrait-making in Jacob's Room can be seen as a literary rendering of her sister's experiment, in particular Studland Beach and her portraits of 1911?-13. The affinities between the two works lie in their elegiac emotion as part of the Post-Impressionist method. In their reaction to the work of the Post-Impressionist painters, both women artists depart from realist representation of people and places and seek to influence the audience's emotions through formal means" (Justyna Kostkowska, "Studland Beach and Jacob's Room: Vanessa Bell's and Virginia Woolf's experiments in portrait making 1910?-1922", Partial Answers (9:1) Jan. 2011, pp. 79?-83. Virginia Woolf noted in her diary for Saturday 14 October 1922: "I have seen Nessa, Maynard, Lydia, Desmond, Saxon, Lytton, Frankie Birrell & Marjorie Fry, all within this week; & had two letters, from Lytton & Carrington, about Jacob's Room, & written I don't know how many envelopes; & here we are on the verge of publication … Richmond writes to ask that date of publication may be put ahead, so that they may notice it on Thursday." Jacob's Room was due to be—and was—published on Friday 27 October. The first edition was of 1,200 copies. The first full-length book to be published by the Hogarth Press, its publication marking the moment when the Woolfs decided to run the Press as a genuine business concern.
