        TWO ALBUMS OF 242 IMAGES OF THE SIBERIAN EXPEDITION, CIRCA 1920

      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.

      Lisbao: Olisipo (1922) - Lisbao: Olisipo (1922). The second edition of these controversial poems, many of which are explicitly homosexual in content and which created a furor when published in this ediiton. The previous year, Botto had published the first edition of the poems, which were largely ignored until his friend Fernando Pessoa issued the present edition under his Olisipo imprint and publicly praised the poems. Conservatives reacted strongly against the poems, calling them "sodom's literature" and the book was banned by the authorities in 1923. Catholic college students clamored for a burning of the book, but Botto refused to apologize for his work. Botto was openly homosexual throughout his life and later struggled to survive by writing children's books and short essays. Pessoa, Portugal's pre-eminent modernist literary figure, considered Botto the only Portuguese poet worthy of the label "aesthete" and, as a critic and publisher, championed his work. Pessoa translated the poems into English, which were eventually published in 1948 (see below). To publicize the book, Pessoa wrote a provocative article, published in the journal Comtemporânea, (see below) praising the author's courage and sincerity for shamelessly singing homosexual love as a true aesthete. Pessoa's article prompted the critic Alvaro Maia to excoriate Botto's work, which was then followed by another article by Raul Leal (an openly homosexual writer, friend of Pessoa). Conservatives reacted and complained to the authorities about the work's immorality ("Sodom's literature") and the book was confiscated by the authorities in 1923. The Liga de Acção dos Estudantes de Lisboa [Lisbon Students Action League], a Catholic college students group (lead by Pedro Teotónio Pereira) clamored for an auto-da-fé of Botto's book and someone even suggested the author should be hanged. Nevertheless, most artists and intellectuals promptly took up his defence in several polemic articles. Eventually, the scandal subsided, the next year the ban was lifted and until the end of his life Botto would publish several revised versions of the book. His work was applauded by Antonio Machado, Miguel de Unamuno, Camilo Pessanha, Virginia Woolf, Teixeira de Pascoaes, José Régio, Luigi Pirandello, Stefan Zweig, Rudyard Kipling, James Joyce and Federico García Lorca. A very good copy in the original printed wrappers, with the original frontispiece photograph of the author, bound in 1/2 leather boards, marbled end-papers, wrappers present. A laudatory review of Botto's work by Jayme de Balsemão appears at the end of the book. His work has been widely praised by fellow writers, including James Joyce among others. See also, Leal, Sodoma Divinisada, (see below) which praises Botto's courage for writing about gay subjects. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Ulysses

      1922. JOYCE, James. Ulysses. [xii], 732, [6] pp. 4to., 237 x 195 mm, in the original blue wrappers, in a cloth chemise and slip case. Paris: Shakespeare and Co., 1922. |~||~||~||~||~| |~||~||~||~| First Edition, one of 750 copies on handmade paper, from a total edition of 1000 copies, this being number 844. "Ulysses - unquestionably one of the most outstanding novels in the English language and the text most expressive of the psyche of modern man and woman - tells the sadly comic story of Leopold Bloom, a good man led by love, attempting to come to terms with loss: the deaths of his son and of his father, the departure of his daughter from home, the passing of his youth and the adultery of his wife Marion (called Molly). Prefaced to this tale is another story, that of a sombre and intense young man, Stephen Dedalus, an aspiring writer bogged down in the stasis of Dublin life, in mourning for his mother and with little hope for the future. The paths of these two men cross, briefly join, and then part. Stephen Dedalus walks into eternity along the lane at the rear of Eccles Street, and Leopold Bloom lays himself down to sleep beside the wife (his head by her feet, his feet by her head) on the recently desecrated marital bed" (Danis Rose, preface to his edition of Ulysses, Picador Press, 1997, p. v). A landmark of English Literature, Ulysses represents the Birth of Modernism. "...and his heart was going like mad and yes I said yes I will Yes." A fine unrestored copy with a little wear to the foot of the spine, and some rubbing, but far superior to most copies encountered. Slocum & Cahoon 17. Cyril Connolly, One Hundred Modern Books 42.

        Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus

      London: Kegan Paul, Trench, Trübner & Co, Ltd,, 1922. With an introduction by Bertrand Russell, F.R.S. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine gilt. Housed in a quarter morocco solander box made by the Chelsea Bindery. Warmly inscribed on the front free endpaper in Wittgenstein's hand (see below), and annotated throughout in pencil by his friend Ludwig Hänsel. Cloth joints split, spine glued along book block, hinges entirely sound. Preserved in a custom made box. First edition in the English language, first impression, early issue (without adverts at end), of one of the philosophical masterpieces of the 20th century, the inspiration for the Cambridge school of analysis of the inter-war years and of the logical positivism of the Vienna circle. Originally published in German the preceding year under the title Logisch-Philosophische Abhandlung, this edition has the English translation facing the original German text. Wittgenstein had been unable to make corrections to the original German edition, and this English-German edition, with the translation supplied by C. K. Ogden and Frank Plumpton Ramsey, is considered the official version. Inscribed by Wittgenstein on the front free endpaper verso opposite the half title "Zur freundlichen Erinnerung an Deinen Wittgenstein. Der Einband ist auf der Reise etwas schäbig geworden und entspricht jetzt so ungefähr dem Inhalt" (As an affectionate reminder of your Wittgenstein. The cover has become a bit shabby on the trip and now more or less matches the content). Ludwig Wittgenstein, then aged 25, enlisted for military service on 7 August 1914, and served variously in an artillery workshop (1914), an artillery repair platoon (1915), and as part of a howitzer regiment (1916?-17). In 1918, he was sent to the southern front, where at the end of the year he was taken prisoner by the Italians. "In January [1919] he is transferred to a POW camp at Cassino. On the way there he makes friends with the sculptor Michael Drobil and two schoolteachers, Ludwig Hänsel and Franz Parak. With the completion of the Abhandlung (the German manuscript, published in English as Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus), Wittgenstein experiences for himself what it means to lose one's vocation, since he believes that he has now exhausted the possibilities for his work on philosophy. He therefore decides, no doubt influenced by his new friends, to become a teacher on his release from captivity" (Wiener Ausgabe, Introduction, 1993, p. 22). Wittgenstein first met Ludwig Hänsel in October 1918 in Prisoner of War camp at Como. "Wittgenstein got to know Hänsel after attending a class on logic that Hänsel was giving to prisoners who hoped upon release to train as teachers. This led to regular discussions between them, during which Wittgenstein led Hänsel through the elements of symbolic logic and explained the ideas of the Tractatus to him. They also read Kant's Critique of Pure Reason together" (Monk, Ludwig Wittgenstein, The Duty of Genius, p. 158). Only three years Wittgenstein's senior, Ludwig Hänsel (1886?-1959) was born in Hallein, Austria, and studied German, French and philosophy at Graz before becoming a teacher in 1913. Like Wittgenstein, he signed up in 1914 and (like Wittgenstein) served in Poland, Galicia, and Italy. During the time spent together as prisoners, Hänsel and Wittgenstein often discussed philosophy. They read Kant's Critique of Pure Reason and Augustine's Confessions together, and the works of Dostoevsky (see Monk, p. 158). Wittgenstein introduced Hänsel to modern logic, and allowed Hänsel to read the Abhandlung. Their correspondence began immediately after the War (the first letter from Wittgenstein dates from September 1919) and lasted until Wittgenstein's death in 1951. Hänsel was one of Wittgenstein's closest friends in those postwar years, providing encouragement and support to Wittgenstein the trainee teacher and acting as a mediator between Wittgenstein and his family, from whom he had then distanced himself. They saw each other often, discussing educational matters, but also philosophy. "As a learned Hofrat Direktor, Hänsel maintained a keen interest in the subject, and in his lifetime published some twenty articles on philosophical subjects (mostly ethics)'"(ibid., p. 189). When Wittgenstein took up his first teaching post, Hänsel continued his role as support and sounding board; he visited Wittgenstein regularly and supplied him with reading books for his pupils. It was Hänsel who encouraged Wittgenstein to publish his Wörterbuch für Volksschulen (1926), aside from the Tractatus, the only other book to appear in his lifetime. It was no doubt on one of these visits that Wittgenstein presented his friend with the book; a remarkable copy, the only signed example we have encountered in over thirty years, warmly inscribed by Wittgenstein.

        SIDDHARTHA. EINE INDISCHE DICHTUNG

      S. Fischer, Berlin 1922 - Thin octavo (5-3/4" x 8-3/4") bound in the publisher's heavy brown wraps with black lettering on the front cover and a later cloth tape hand-lettered spine; [1-8], 9-146, [-147], [1, blank], [2, publisher's ads]. The true First Edition with the text in German of one of this Nobel Prize winner's two famous and important novels, the other being of course STEPPENWOLF. This copy is SIGNED in ink by the author with a brief inscription on the front endpaper. Hesse based this book on the early life of Gautama Buddha. The story of a son rebelling against his father's teaching and traditions and eventually finding true enlightenment resonated with those maturing in the 1960s and 1970s making this title something of a cult classic. It was made into a beautiful film in 1972 by Conrad Rooks. George Goetz was a Danish Jew living in Sweden because of persecution. He maintained a correspondence with Hesse, only recently discovered, from 1939 to 1951. Their letters discussed everything from the trivial to Hesse's work and its place in Nazi Germany. One common point of interest was the German-Jewish philosopher Constantin Brunner (Goetz would later become President of International Constantin Brunner Institute.). This book as well as several other titles inscribed to Goetz were discovered with the letters and is now being offered for public sale for the first time. Owner name of George Goetz dated 1939 on the front endpaper well above Hesse's inscription with a small stain at the bottom corner well below Hesse's inscription. A few marginal pencil notations, likely by Goetz. Some aging to the paper but at least Very Good and very scarce when signed [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        The Worst Journey in the World Antarctic 1910-1913

      New York:: Doran,. 1922.. First American edition. The 1st American edition, published the same year as the 1st UK edition, printed in the UK but without the 10 panoramic plates. A classic of Antarctic literature, it is an account of Scott's last Antarctic Expedition from 1910-13. Hearing of Scott's proposed 2nd expedition, Cherry-Garrard volunteered his services to Dr. Wilson, whom he had met previously. "In an expedition every member of which was a specialist, he was accepted by Scott on Wilson's recommendation alone & duly enlisted as 'assistant zoologist". Yet from the outset, despite his youth and inexperience, he won the affectionate regard of his more seasoned comrades, and before the close of the expedition had more sledge-journeys to his credit than any other surviving member... Cherry-Garrard was warmly commended by Scott for his efficiency and unselfishness as a sledger and tent-mate. In the comparative comfort of life at base, he edited the South Polar Times... Wilson chose Bowers and Cherry-Garrard -- 'the pick of the sledging element' (Scott) -- as his companions for a Winter Journey in 1911 to the rookery of the Emperor Penguin at Cape Crozier, an exploit which is still without parallel in the annals of polar exploration. On their return 5 weeks later, Scott described their journey as 'the hardest that has ever been made' -- a phrase which later suggested to Cherry- Garrard the title of his narrative. The book is widely regarded as the most readable of all the Antarctic literature. Oddly, not in Spence (see Spence 277 for 1st UK). 2 vols. 8vo, lxiv, 300 pp (4), 30 ills & 4 maps (&) 301-585 pp, 28 ills & 1 map. Original linen spine & gray papered boards, title label on spine. Very tight and clean copies, with a couple of minor marks on the spines, spine labels cracked, slightly rubbed at extremes. Very small neat owner signature, R. L. Langenheim Jr. inside front boards.
