        Siddhartha

      Berlin: S. Fischer Verlag, 1922 First edition, first printing, with "Erste bis sechste Auflage" to the copyright page. Publisher's orange boards, lettered in black. Near fine, with some light wear and rubbing to the hinges, light toning and some bowing to the boards, former owner's inscription to the front free endpaper, otherwise bright and clean interior. Overall, a very bright and attractive copy. Housed in a custom clamshell box. Siddhartha is the ninth novel by German-Swiss author Hermann Hesse. After traveling to Sri Lanka and Indonesia among other locations in South Asia, Hesse became intrigued with the religions and cultures of the region, and these interests - specifically Buddhist philosophies - became highly influential in his writing. In Siddhartha, Hesse describes the spiritual and physical journey of a young man named Siddhartha who hopes to achieve Enlightenment. Interestingly, the protagonist is based loosely on a young Guatama Buddha, whose was also known as Siddhartha Guatama, but the fictional Siddhartha is not a simple reflection of the Buddha, who is represented in this novel by the religious figure Gotama. Hesse's gift for poetry is evidenced in the lyrical nature of this text, which lends itself to the spiritual subject matter. Although it was first published in 1922, Siddhartha was published in neither a second German edition nor first translated edition until the first American edition from New Directions in 1951. While Hesse was an acclaimed German author, the Nazi Party in Germany suppressed his writing along with other contemporary work that did not conform to the state's regulations. After it was published in the United Sates, Siddhartha experienced a surge in popularity during the counterculture movement.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

      , 1922 ALS to Diaghilev, in Russian, confiding that he has detected a note of sadness in Diaghilev's last letter, jovially and facetiously offering assistance: "...Oh, if I could help you. But how? If I cannot help you with my music, what can I help you with?" Stravinsky remarks that, despite his own admiration for it, he is not willing to offer Diaghilev consolation with his male member.

        David Belasco two silver gelatin photos both signed by Genthe, and one with an inscription poem by the playwright impresario, to important artist William Haskell Coffin

      NP, 1922. No binding. Very Good. Two silver gelatin photos, 19cm x20.5cm (7-1/2 x 8 inches) both signed by Arnold Genthe. Photos probably circa 1911 and the Belasco signed print is dated 1922?. Overall very good condition.One with an inscription poem by the well know playwright impresario David Belasco, to important listed artist [William] Haskell Coffin [1877-1941] (famous WWI poster with Jeanne D'arc); a poem of revelatory nature. Belasco, inscription reacts to Haskell Coffins remark about him having bedroom eyes. (underneath the dedication says: a boy of terrible ideas...) The other photo is signed in the bottom right by Genthe.Quite a nice Genthe silver gelatin signed photo with the incorporation of the Belasco inscription and Coffin ownership. Three very well known people all linked in this intriguing photo!The other photo is signed in the bottom right by Genthe. It is very curious from a provenance viewpoint, the previous dealer indicated both of these silver gelatin photos came from a son of Haskell Coffin and the whole collection contained diaries photos family and friends and many photos. One wonders why there would be an inscribed Belaco photo and other only signed by Genthe. Another story?Inscription "To Haskell Coffin (a boy of terrible ideas) I will not show those eyes which you have said Should not be put in any fellows head Nor hint at my complete- my shocked surprise When you informed me "you have bedroom eyes". David Belasco. Belasco was probably as comprehensive a theatre practitioner as could be - actor, stage manager, pioneer of stage lighting, director, playwright, manager - Belasco did them all. He also discovered Mary Pickford. From 1884-1930, Belasco produced over 100 shows on Broadway. Belasco was informally known in the theatrical community as "the Bishop of Broadway,"William Haskell Coffin (1877-1941) A well-known magazine illustrator and figure and portrait painter in New York City. Marriage (1): Ida BREMAN on 30 April 1908 in New York, NY. Marriage (2): Frances STARR on 27 May 1920 in New York, NY, United States. W Haskell Coffin probably due to personal and financial problems that he committed suicide in St. Petersburg, Florida in 1941.Arnold Genthe was a German-born American photographer, best known for his photos of San Francisco's Chinatown, the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake and his portraits of noted people, from politicians and socialites to literary figures and entertainment celebrities. In 1911 he moved to New York City, where he remained until his death of a heart attack in 1942. He worked primarily in portraiture.

        Autograph Letter, signed ("Calvin Coolidge"), to Mr. D.M. Stoner

      [Washington, D.C., 1922. 2 pp. pen and ink on folded sheet, with autograph envelope stamped "Washington D.C. Dec. 7, 1922". 8vo. Fine. In brown cloth chemise. Advice to a Young Man: "All you need to do is work and save your money" Coolidge, as Vice President, writes a letter of advice to eighteen-year old D.M. Stoner. Reading in full: "Here is what I think is the right change. It is a satisfaction to know that you are doing well. I shall take for granted that you are glad of my help so there is no need for you to come to thank me. Now be careful of your money. It does little good to earn money if none is saved. You need some life insurance. If you will take what is enclosed [not present] and get an 'ordinary life' policy with twenty years settlement period you will never regret it. This would buy $1,000 and have some change left over. All you need to do is WORK and SAVE YOUR MONEY. Just two things." A fine letter; Coolidge, in typical to-the-point fashion, expounds the virtues of frugality and hard work.

        Hogarth's "Arabia"

      [London: printed for the author at the Chiswick Press, 1922. First separate edition, 25 copies signed by the author, this copy numbered "Fourteen". 9, [1, limitation], [2, blank] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Blue printed wrappers, stitched. Fine. In cloth folding case. Fine. One of 25 copies, signed Doughty's private edition of his review of D.G. Hogarth's Arabia (Clarendon Press, 1922), reprinted from The Observer 19 March 1922.  David George Hogarth (1862-1927), archaeologist, Arabian traveller, and keeper of the Ashmolean Museum, author of A Wandering Scholar in the Levant (1896) and The Penetration of Arabia (1904). Hogarth travelled to Carchemish in 1910 with T.E. Lawrence, whom he encouraged to learn Arabic. "With the outbreak of the First World War, Hogarth's knowledge of the Arab world and the Ottoman empire was invaluable" (ODNB). He worked with the Arab Bureau in Cairo (and paid for its library there). "Hogarth was largely responsible for the difficult and delicate diplomacy which underlay the Arab campaign so brilliantly conducted in the field by his former archaeological disciple, T. E. Lawrence." A fine essay on Hogarth's late work, Arabia; its cadences reveal much of Doughty and his own view of the land and its people. Hogarth was one of the re-discoverers and champions of Doughty, and wrote the first biographical study of his friend, who died in 1926 and whom Hogarth did not long survive. The work was completed by Hogarth's son and was published in 1928. Rare.

        David Belasco two silver gelatin photos both signed by Genthe, and one with an inscription poem by the playwright impresario, to important artist William Haskell Coffin

      NP 1922 - Two silver gelatin photos, 19cm x20.5cm (7-1/2 x 8 inches) both signed by Arnold Genthe. Photos probably circa 1911 and the Belasco signed print is dated 1922? Overall very good condition.One with an inscription poem by the well know playwright impresario David Belasco, to important listed artist [William] Haskell Coffin [1877-1941] (famous WWI poster with Jeanne D'arc); a poem of revelatory nature. Belasco, inscription reacts to Haskell Coffins remark about him having bedroom eyes. (underneath the dedication says: a boy of terrible ideas.) The other photo is signed in the bottom right by Genthe.Quite a nice Genthe silver gelatin signed photo with the incorporation of the Belasco inscription and Coffin ownership. Three very well known people all linked in thisintriguingphoto!The other photo is signed in the bottom right by Genthe. It is very curious from a provenance viewpoint, the previous dealer indicated both of these silver gelatin photos came from a son of Haskell Coffin and the whole collection contained diaries photos family and friends and many photos. One wonders why there would be an inscribed Belaco photo and other only signed by Genthe. Another story?Inscription "To Haskell Coffin (a boy of terrible ideas) I will not show those eyes which you have said Should not be put in any fellows head Nor hint at my complete- my shocked surprise When you informed me "you have bedroom eyes". David Belasco. Belasco was probably as comprehensive a theatre practitioner as could be - actor, stage manager, pioneer of stage lighting, director, playwright, manager - Belasco did them all. He also discovered Mary Pickford. From 1884-1930, Belasco produced over 100 shows on Broadway. Belasco was informally known in the theatrical community as "the Bishop of Broadway,"William Haskell Coffin (1877-1941) A well-known magazine illustrator and figure and portrait painter in New York City. Marriage (1): Ida BREMAN on 30 April 1908 in New York, NY. Marriage (2): Frances STARR on 27 May 1920 in New York, NY, United States. W Haskell Coffin probably due to personal and financial problems that he committed suicide in St. Petersburg, Florida in 1941.Arnold Genthe was a German-born American photographer, best known for his photos of San Francisco's Chinatown, the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake and his portraits of noted people, from politicians and socialites to literary figures and entertainment celebrities. In 1911 he moved to New York City, where he remained until his death of a heart attack in 1942. He worked primarily in portraiture.

The organization Dilg founded still exists and pursues conservation initiatives.The Bonefish Brigade is RARE, and the present copy is inscribed by the editor who founded the Izaak Walton League and commissioned the piece, with a notable letter pleading for Grey's support.

        Ulysses

      Paris: Shakespeare and Co, 1922. First edition, No. 234 of 150 numbered copies on vergé d'Arches (total edition, 1000 copies). xii, 740 pp. 1 vols. Tall 8vo (26.2 x 20.1 cm.). Original blue wrappers printed in white. Wrappers slightly rubbed at edges, skillfully rebacked, preserving most of original spine. Very good, in quarter morocco slipcase with chemise, and the original Shakespeare & Co. prospectus laid in. Composer VIRGIL THOMSON's copy, signed in light pencil by him on the flyleaf: "Virgil Thomson Paris 1922". First edition, No. 234 of 150 numbered copies on vergé d'Arches (total edition, 1000 copies). xii, 740 pp. 1 vols. Tall 8vo (26.2 x 20.1 cm.). Virgil Thomson's Copy - one of 150 on Large Paper. The first printing of Ulysses consisted of 1000 copies in three limitations: the first 100 were printed on Dutch handmade paper, numbered, and signed by Joyce, price 350 francs; 150 large paper copies numbered 101-250, printed on Vergé d'Arches, unsigned, at 250 francs; and the final 750 were numbered 251-1000 and printed on a lesser grade of handmade paper, at 150 francs Arguably the most significant and celebrated English language novel of the 20th Century, the publishing trials and tribulations of Ulysses are legend. Stymied by obscenity charges that prevented its serial publication in The Egoist, Joyce's masterpiece was published instead by Sylvia Beach in the winter of 1922 under her imprint at the Shakespeare and Company bookshop in Paris. In 1922, a young Harvard music student, Virgil Thomson, was on leave from school to study with the great Nadia Boulanger in Paris; a month before his return to America in August, Thomson purchased this copy on July 1, 1922, according to Sylvia Beach's notebook (v. Horowitz catalogue). A few years later, Thomson returned to Paris, where he became acquainted with the circle of experimental artists, writers, and musicians who gathered at Sylvia Beach's famous bookshop, and it was there that he came to know James Joyce. "After the success of 'Four Saints in Three Acts,' Joyce asked Thomson to compose a score for a ballet to be presented at the Paris Opera with choreography by Leonide Massine based on the children's games chapter of FINNEGAN'S WAKE. Thomson demurred, not wanting to wound his good friend Gertrude, who thought Joyce a rival" (Anthony Tommasini, Virgil Thomson: Composer on the Aisle, p. 139). A remarkable association copy of this modernist classic.

        NIHON TAIKAN

      1922. [SKETCHTOUR GENRE] Nakazawa Hiromitsu, artist. NIHON TAIKAN. [Views of Japan] Tokyo: Bunendoo, 1922. 38 x 27 cm, oblong folio in size. 50 single sheet color woodblock prints of views, primarily in the Kyoto/Osaka area, with prefatory descriptions, in a tied portfolio with a woodblock cover. This massive work was undertaken by Kanao Tanejiro of the important publisher Bunendo. His earlier HANSHIN MEISHO ZUE had been a departure for the book publisher Kanao into a new field - oban size print portfolios. NIHON TAIKAN was a direct challenge to the primacy of Watanabe in the field of shin hanga prints and an effort to redirect the genre away from its emphasis on bijin and the like. For this effort, he assembled some of the best printers and engravers of the day, Nishimura Kumakichi and Okada Seijiro, and combined their talents with those of the artist Nakazawa Hiromitsu. Hiromitsu's work is at its best here. Less stiff than that of Hasui or even Yoshida, it carries the recreation in woodcut of the "feel" of watercolor to new heights. (See Scott Johnson on the `Sketchtour' genre for more on Bunendo and Hiromitsu.) In any case, this most ambitious of Bun'endo's landscape productions is also the rarest. Completed the year before the great Earthquake and fire of 1923, all the unsold sets of NIHON TAIKAN and the blocks themselves were lost and Bun'endo moved to Kyoto in an attempt to restore the company fortunes. This set of prints is very well-printed, though the preliminaries are a bit foxed. There is ocassional marginal foxing to the prints as well, not effecting the images. The original portfolio is a bit worn, but intact. Rare:
