        One Man in His Time

      Garden City: Doubleday, Page & Company. 1922.

        One of Ours

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1922. From the signed, limited, numbered first printing, this is number 266, signed by the author at the limitation page opposite the full title. The pages are bright saving some toning around the deckled edges and quite clean except for a very few scattered spots of foxing; no owners' marks; the quarter cloth binding leans gently to the right but remains tight; the paper boards and paper title plate at the spine show some chipping around the edges, with a pressure mark at the bottom right front corner, a small inward turn and surface scuff at the top left rear corner, and some surface creasing at the corners and right edge of the title plate; some fading is also evident along the head edges of the paper and along the right rear, and the title plate is age-toned; nonetheless, a remarkably clean and attractive book, well-preserved. 459pp.; an extra copy of the title plate is tipped in at the final endpaper.. Signed and Numbered First. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Dustjacket.

        Vacation letters from M.A.C. [Michael A. Coyle] to Rosie [Coyle]

      n.p., [Westport, CT] - Michael A. Coyle of Westport, CT, was an employee of the New Haven Railroad and served as a telegraph operator. Using his company railroad pass to get discounted tickets he made several railroad trips across the United States and documented his travel experience and observations about the trains, the weather, the people he met, the meals he had and the sites he saw. In some volumes he mentions current events including the World Series, his resemblance to Calvin Coolidge or being mistaken for a minister. These letters were sent on an almost daily basis to his sister Rosie back home in Westport. The letters were later typed out and bound to serve as a travel diary for Coyle. Some were illustrated with tipped in photographs, maps and newspaper clippings. Four separate volumes with each covering one trip: 1922: September 28-October 8. 48 letters. New York City to Denver and return. Last letter from Washington, D. C. 1923: October 1-October 16. 81 letters. New York City to Salt Lake City and return.

        Photo Album - Mashonaland (Colony of Rhodesia)

      Africa, 1922. Photograph Album Pioneer Farming in Mashonaland African Labourers and Chiefs Inverness Highlands Connection 1922 Territory of Mashonaland [later the Colony of Rhodesia], 1922. A most uncommon photograph album of the working farms established by two Scottish cousins of the Fraser-Mackenzie lineage, "Dick" and "Jack" whom emigrated in February 1920 and whom became pioneer farmers throughout Southern Rhodesia. Contains 55 sepia snapshot photographs with occasional typescript captions, plus 3 large copyrighted silver gelatin photographs of Victoria Lake and the Falls by Percy R. Clark, and 1 Roberts photograph of the South Africa Union Buildings, the lot neatly mounted with transparent corners onto 19 cardstock leaves. Oblong 8vo. string-tied album measuring approximately 32 x 22 cm, snake skin patterned cloth boards and matching endpapers. Ownership inscription penciled to front board reads "Fraser-Mackenzie 1922." Photographs vary in size, the smallest measuring approximately 11 x 6 cm, and the largest 20,5 x 15,5 cm. Scant few photographs creased, otherwise in Very Good Condition, unique views of colonial Zimbabwe. The Lone Cow Farm at Mutorashanga, and the Allan Grange Farm at Hartley (now Chegutu), situated 160 kilometers apart in the Mashonaland West province of what is now Zimbabwe, form the setting for this album. [In 1913 the 23,000 acre Lone Cow Ranch was purchased from a Mr. Bliss by Thorney Creek Ranching Co., a company based which had for two of its four Directors two Fraser-Mackenzies, possibly Jack's father and uncle. Mr. Bliss had acquired the land in April 1908 and named it Lone Cow.] R.A. "Dick" Fraser-Mackenzie who owned the Allan Grange Farm is seen in several images, as are his workers. Relentlessly arduous labour, generally performed by hired African workers, filled the hours, as is well illustrated in these images. Favourable relationships with local Chiefs would certainly also be advantageous. Here we see two African chiefs, one of whom brings a goat as a gift. Ploughing and cultivating was done manually by ploughmen with a rudimentary contraption; water for cattle was carried for long distances by the Africans in containers resting on their heads; acres of mealie corn was sorted by hand, and so on. Large water carts for crops were ox-driven, as were the plows to turn over old mealie corn crops for new growth, blessed be the signs of advance. [By 1927 Jack Fraser had implemented a tractor plough that operated on lengthy electric cables which were strewn across the field and which drew power from a steam engine. Albeit dangerous, at the time it was considered genius, and fetched an extremely high price.] J.A. "Jack" Fraser-Mackenzie, son of a Scottish tea merchant, owned the Lone Cow farm and estate, and another estate at Chiwe. He is also seen in a number of photographs, usually with his cousin Dick or other family members on one of the homesteads. Jack's father, Robert "Bob" Fraser-Mackenzie, also makes at least one appearance. At the time of these images Mashonaland West was an attractive mining region and a notable tobacco-growing district, though farmers also grew corn (maize), cotton, soy, and winter wheat. The tsetse fly inflicted prolific devastation to cattle and remained a point of contention for some time. [At a Ayrshire-Sipolilo Farmer's Association meeting 5 July 1924 Jack Fraser-Mackenzie reported a loss of no less than nine spans of oxen the previous year on his farm "Chiwe Estate".] From 1890 to 1930 timber export flourished in the neighbouring Mazowe District, as miners and farmers alike exploited forests for further revenue. [As well as farming, Dick was an expert in cutting and exporting of fine Banket mahogany, an enterprise in which he engaged from his Allan Grange farm. He supplied some of the latter for the construction of the Rhodesia House on the Strand in London.] Jack, Dick and Bob Fraser-Mackenzie are connected to the historic Bunchrew House Hotel, a 17th century Scottish mansion in Inverness. In August 1842 a tea merchant, John Fraser of Inverness, purchased Bunchrew House for £13,650. His son Robert "Bob" married Beatrice Mackenzie of Ord, and so became the name Fraser-Mackenzie. Beatrice was initially named owner the Allangrange estate and their son "Jack" given in charge to manage it before it became his own. Robert and Beatrice had another son, Leo, who was an officer in the Inverness Battery, Royal Horse Artillery and served through the 1914-18 war under General Allenby in Palestine. He retired with the rank of major and became factor for the Bunchrew and Allangrange estates until his death after a serious illness. Some time around the Second World War, their cousin "Dick" met a tragic death by falling from the balcony of the Highland Club in Inverness. . Very Good.

        [????? Ato Inga Shu. East Asian Pictorial Album]

      ??. [Dalian].: Ato Inga Kyokai (??????) Ato Printing Association.. 1922- circa 1930.. 102 tipped-in professional gelatin silver prints on black card leaves, one to a page. A little oxidation causing mirroring at the edges of some images and some fading, one photograph creased but generally the photographs are in good condition. Photographs are accompanied by a tipped-in text description in Japanese (3 captions missing, 1 torn with significant loss). Unlettered paper covered boards, later red string tie. One leaf loosening and the margins of another creased in neither case affecting the image. Collection of professional photographs published by Ato Inga Kyokai (??????:Ato Printing Association) a Japanese photography company based in Dalian between the 1922 and 1944. These photographs originally appeared in the journal published by Ato Inga Kyokai. Albums of Ato Inga Kyokai's photographs are most uncommon. This album is unusual. It appears that this compiliation of photographs may have been ordered by the original owner to match their own interest as there are a large number of images of Shanxi Province. Sixty-two images are of Shanxi Province with another 40 images of Chinese subjects although their location is not specified. The subjects covered in this interesting album include portraits and scenes showing farmers, workers and a number of striking landscapes. The photographs we have traced were all published in the period from 1922 to 1928. The few albums of Ato Inga Kyokai's photographs which we have been able to locate, held by the University of Kyoto and the Diet Library in Tokyo, include some but not all of the photographs in this collection, a number of these photographs we have not been able to locate in any collection. .

With the bookplate of the collector Brian Stilwell on each front paste-down."Theocritus (first half of the third century BC), Hellenistic Greek poet, the originator of pastoral or bucolic poetry His extant poems, generically known as Idylls, and mostly in the hexameter metre, include court poems, mythological poems, and epigrams, but his fame stems from the seven or so poems which were primarily bucolic. These were to have a strong influence on Virgil (in the Eclogues) and through him on later European literature The first Idyll contains the beautiful lament for Daphnis, a dirge imitated in the Adonis of Bion and in the Bion attributed to Moschus, and the prototype of later pastoral elegies, Milton’s Lycidas, Shelley’s Adonais, and Matthew Arnold’s Thyrsis" (The Concise Oxford Companion to Classical Literature).Bion "of Smyrna, the last Greek pastoral poet known to us by name; he lived at the end of the second century BC, and is generally linked with the pastoral poet Moschus. Virtually nothing is known of his life; according to the anonymous Lament for Bion (attributed to Moschus), he lived in Sicily and died by poisoning. He wrote in hexameters in the (literary) Doric dialect, and seventeen fragments of his poems (some may even be complete) survive. Since the Renaissance he has been credited with the Lament for Adonis The pastoral element in his work is slight, most of the poems being playfully erotic" (The Concise Oxford Companion to Classical Literature). "Moschus (flourished c.150 BC), Greek poet of Syracuse whose extant poems include five hexameter pieces, one of which is bucolic (comparing the pleasures of the countryman with the hard lot of the fisherman), and an epigram on Eros as a ploughman; there are also an epyllion Europa in 166 hexameters on the rape of Europa by Zeus, and the Megara, a hexameter dialogue between Heracles’ wife (who gave her name to the poem) and his mother Alcmena, who bewail their misfortunes caused by Heracles' long absence. Also attributed to Moschus, but improbably since Bion (2) lived at least a generation after him, is the beautiful (bucolic) Lament for Bion" (The Concise Oxford Companion to Classical Literature).

        China South East Coast. Hong Kong to the Brothers From various Admiralty Surveys between 1845 and 1925.

      Published at the Admiralty, New Edition 27th Dec., 1922. Small corrections to 1923., London, - Admiralty chart of the South East Coast of China 710 by 1330mm. (28 by 52.25 inches). Engraved chart, including tidal information, compass roses, soundings, seabed notations, currents, sandbanks, shoals, lighthouses and beacons picked out in yellow and red, inland elevations and detailing, insets of Tai Sami and Goat Island. Detailed chart of the South East coast of China.The British Hydrographic Office was founded in 1795 by George III, who appointed Alexander Dalrymple as the first Hydrographer to the Admiralty. The first charts were produced in 1800. Unlike the U. S. Coast Survey the Hydrographic Office was given permission to sell charts to the public and they produced a great number of sea charts covering every corner of the globe. Most of the Admiralty charts produced by the Hydrographic Office delineated coastline as well as high and low water marks and record depth of water as established by soundings. In addition these charts included information on shoals, reefs, and other navigational hazards that plagued mariners across the world. Thanks to the innovations of Sir Francis Beaufort, who developed the Beaufort Scale of wind strength, the British Hydrographic Office became one of the leading producers of sea charts. In fact, such was their accuracy that the phrase 'Safe as an Admiralty Chart' was coined.

Bound as issued in parchment over boards with the perimeter of boards and spine compartments ruled in gold; light soiling to the vellum binding, but largely an attractive and clean copy; top edge gilt; very light thumb soiling to the colophon page. The Bremer Press took as its model Emery Walker and Cobden-Sanderson's Doves Press--elegantly designed books with a focus on typography. Title and initials in this and most of the Press's books were designed by Anna Simons who was trained by noted English calligrapher Edward Johnston. Yet another connection to the Doves Press, the binding is stamp-signed by Frieda Thiersch who learned her trade from Charles F. Mcleish of the Doves Bindery. Thiersch became a notable bookbinder and designed and executed many of the Bremer Press bindings and was the director of the bindery until 1933 when she opened her own workshop. An interesting aside, Thiersch would go on to bind some of the most important documents and books for Hitler and the Third Reich. Text in German.

      Paris: Shakespeare and Company,, 1922. Large octavo. Bound by ?-stermalms in blue half morocco, marbled sides, raised bands, titles and decorative tooling to compartments gilt, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, marbled endpapers. Housed in a marbled board slipcase. With the original blue front wrapper bound in at the beginning. Bookseller's ticket to front pastedown, binder's ticket to rear pastedown. Spine slightly sunned, half-title gently tanned. Otherwise a fine copy in a lightly rubbed slipcase with some minor wear to extremities. First edition, first printing, number 233 of 150 large paper copies numbered between 101 and 150. Ulysses was published in imitation of the traditional three-tiered French format aimed at both connoisseurs and readers: 100 copies were printed on Dutch handmade paper and signed by Joyce; 150 copies were printed on heavier vergé d'Arches to create this large paper format; and the remaining 750 copies formed a small format trade issue, printed on less expensive vergé à barbes stock. Bought by C. E. Fritze Hofbokhandel and bound for the bookseller by ?-stermalms bokbinderi, this copy was recorded in Sylvia Beach's notebook as having been sent on 24 May 1922. As such, it is the first Ulysses to be imported to Sweden; copies of the work were generally hard to find in Scandinavia throughout the 1920s and 1930s (Riikonen, "Blooms in the North", in The Reception of James Joyce in Europe, p. 130). The earliest translation of Joyce into any Scandinavian language was Ebba Atterbom's Swedish translation of A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man which was published by Geber in 1921. Despite this, Joyce's magnum opus would not be translated until 1946, when Albert Bonniers förlag published Thomas Warburton's translation, entitled Odysseus. Warburton would himself edit and amend his translation for the 1993 edition; a completely new translation by Erik Andersson, who retained the English title, was published by Bonniers in 2012. Originally founded in 1837 as Fritze & Bagge, C. E. Fritze was a successful bookseller and publisher based at Storkyrkobrinken 3 and later in one of the corner buildings close to Gustav Adolfs torg, Fredsgatan 2. A successful bookshop, Fritze was given a Swedish Royal warrant in 1862; in the hands of K. F. Kruhs and B. Söderberg, who bought the shop in 1870, Fritze became one of the major booksellers in Sweden, focusing on modern classics, deluxe editions, and illustrated works, as well as publishing works by August Strindberg and Jonathan Swift, as well as engaging illustrators like Carl Larsson.

        [Crime Scene Photographs]: Exhibit Photographs from the Halls-Mills Murder Trial

      [New Brunswick]: Van Derveer Photo.. [1922]. 10 different large silver gelatin photographs mounted on stiff card stock. Sepia-toned images measuring 15.75" x 12.75" on slightly larger mounts for exhibition. Several have handwritten notes paper-clipped to the mount describing what is in the photo. A little rounding on the corners of the mounts, paperclips a little oxidized but not substantially affecting the images, just about fine, the images clear and deep. Reputedly used as state's exhibits at the infamous Hall-Mills Murder Trial. None of the exhibit photos are grisly, they mostly refer to the geography of the case with one (captioned "Crab apple tree where bodies were found") used as an illustration in the William Kuntsler's book, The Hall-Mills Murder Case: The Minister and the Choir Singer. Provenance on request and accompanied by a supplied second edition of book. .

        Pair of Raptor Dinosaur Eggs

      [China], c. 75-71 million B.C. "Cluster of two fossilized Velociraptor eggs from a larger cluster of eggs, each 7?-8? in length, 2.5? in width. Imbedded in a 1.75? base, each egg is about 1? high. Fine condition.Originally purchased by a collector/dealer in Japan, but most likely excavated in China where most nests of dinosaur eggs are discovered. The pair has about 20% restoration according to the original owner.Velociraptor mongoliensis, whose bones were first discovered in the Gobi Desert in Mongolia in 1922, were much smaller than the raptor depicted in ?Jurassic Park.? Also, recent research indicates that velociraptors had feathers, though they couldn?t fly; their short forelimbs made liftoff impossible. Raptors had large brains in proportion to body size suggesting intelligence. The raptor had a 3.5-inch retractable claw on each foot and a mouth full of sharp teeth. Running on two legs, it has been estimated that it may have had the ability to reach speeds of 24 miles per hour. "

        Typed Letter, signed ("Gutzon Borglum"), to industrialist Curtis Freshel in Chestnut Hill, Mass. , concerning political suggestions for opposing the Harding Administration in forthcoming elections

      Stamford, Connecticut, july 8, 1922. 4to. 1-1/2 pp., on "Borgland" letterhead. Very good. In custom crimson cloth portfolio . A fine letter from the prickly Borglum, whose political infighting is on full display in this sparkling letter to the industrialist Curtis Freshel: "-1 feel that the North Dakota victory is largely a personal one that shows how easy things can be accomplished, for I really did very little more than make butter out of conditions that are ripe allover the country for the same results. Very little money, some real intelligence, common-sense, energy and instant action will upset the whole army of nobodies [Harding and his administration] that are misdirecting our national affairs. I would like to have a couple of hours with Fuller. Have you found out anything more about Walker? What do you think of getting Myrick into the ring, churning up qUite a following for the sake of pull ing the vote away from Lodge, and then withdrawing in favor of Walker? Myrick is not ready to take office - he doesn't want it. He is rather being crowded into the water at this time, but he feels about the national situation as we do, and he might be very useful aid in this manner ... Do you know anybody in Nebraska? We have got to elect Howell at the Primaries, or we will get Jeffries, a reactionary Republican, or Hitchcock, who is the same kind of a creature with another label. The Reactionaries are doing exactly what they did in Iowa, however, with chance of some success ... Did you read Harding's speech at Marion? He is smarting under the pricks and he can't scold me, but he is madder than the devil at my frank letters to him telling him what happens. I have been curiously fortunate in informing him of nearly all the bad things that have come to his group for the last year and a hal f well in advance before they happen ... Have you noticed that the bonus is practically retired, and that the ship subsidy, Harding's baby, is gone? Of course, this means confusion at the top and McCumber is no longer leader. I t means, in other words, exactly what I said it would mean, that if we could destroy their leader we would wreck their legislative plan."

        Autograph Letter Signed, in pencil, 2 separate pages, on fragile paper; with a now brittle photo attached to end page, Zennor, St. Ives, Cornwall, Friday, no date [January 12, 1917]

      . To J.B. Pinker, Lawrence's agent, referring to sending Pinker a manuscript of 'The Miracle'; talking about his book, "Women in Love" not being a novel any of the publishers wanted to publish; his issues with publishers paying him properly; and his desire to visit America where he felt he would be well received. Lawrence begins by informing Pinker that, "I send you the manuscript of another story - The Miracle, which is beautiful and ends happily, so the swine of people ought to be very thankful...." He refers here to the story The Horse Dealer's Daughter (published in English Review, xxxiv, April 1922) which was originally called The Miracle. He refers to his novel Women in Love, expressing doubt that any publisher would publish it and expresses joy that "there is no more Methuen [referring to the publishing house]." He calls his novel a "chef-d'oeuvre," but suggests that no one "will be dying to publish it." He also refers to poems that he had sent Pinker and suggests that he would be "rather glad if nobody wants... then I shall put them in the fire." He further mentions publishers talking about Duckworth and Mitchell Kennerley who Lawrence says swindled him. Mitchell Kennerley (1878-1950) became Lawrence's American publisher with the publication of "The Trespasser" in May 1912 ; he published "The Widowing of Mrs Holroyd" in 1914. Lawrence He ends by speaking of lack of funds (partly due to Kennerley not paying him properly) and saying, "I am determined that I will have some money before long. I am sick of poking about in a corner, up to the neck in poverty... I think America is my untilled field." Signed, "D.H. Lawrence." Published in The Letters of D.H. Lawrence: October 1916 - June 1921, #1354, where it is dated as 12 January 1918 [Text TMSC, NWU; Huxley 380]. Lawrence moved to Zennor in March of 1916. In "The Major Short Stories of D.H. Lawrence: A Handbook," by Kearney, page 147, "The Miracle" is discussed. "He at last sent the completed short story to his agent J.B. Pinker on January 12, 1917. The tone of the accompanying letter was dark." Kearney also quotes a letter of November 13 to Pinker stating that "The Miracle is 'on hand,' to be finished as soon as he sent off the novel Women in Love. In The Letters of D.H. Lawrence: October 1916 - June 1921, #1354, a footnote states that the story was "eventually re-titled The Horse Dealer's Daughter (see Tedlock, Lawrence MSS 93) and published in English Review...."
