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). Ransom, Private Presses, p. 395, no. 8. Tomkinson, p. 149, no. 8.

        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.

        Bremer Press] IPHIGENIE AUF TAURIS

      Munich: Bremer Press, 1922. Limited Edition, number 152 of 300 copies. Vellum Binding. Quarto. 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. Ransom 12; Gerald Cinamon ?"German Graphic Designers?"; Luise Poulton, ?"The Feminine Touch?" (2009).

        Ulysses

      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.

        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...."

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).

        Formosa Island & Strait From various Admiralty surveys 1843-1904. Formosa and the Pescadores Is. from Japanese Government surveys 1895-1909.

      Published at the Admiralty, New Edition 27th Dec., 1922. Small corrections to 1923. - Admiralty chart of Taiwan 700 by 1020mm. (27.5 by 40.25 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, text below title pasted on. Detailed chart of Taiwan Island and Taiwan Straits.Taiwan at the time of the chart's publication was under the control of the Japanese, who in 1895 had gained control of the island from the Chinese after the First Sino-Japanses War. The text below the title details the latest advice to mariners on the China Station, and shows Japan's growing influence in the area:"I have received from their Lordships advance information of a Notice to Mariners in course of publication with a view to such information being promulgated now to authorities on the China Station for immediate distribution to all interested bodies and persons. Notice is to the following effect: Locality, Pescadores, Bako Ko, should be deleted from lists of Typhoon anchorages and included in list of prohibited areas. Charts and publications concerned: Japan Pilot, Vol. 1, 1926, Pages 29 and 30. China Sea Pilot, Vol. 5, 1926, Pages 19 & 59. Chart No. 1961 Reference position "A" in Latitude 23-33-OON, Longitude 119-32-52E. Details - Attention is called to the Regulations governing Japanese Naval Ports. The Northwestern limit of Number two area is to be inserted on the chart as follows from position "A" above in an 048 degrees direction to a point on the opposite shore of Bako Ko. The note "number two area" is to be inserted in Bako Ko and about six cables Southeastward of position "A" above, Number two area, within which is number one area, is the whole of Bako Ko southeastwards of the above limit. The area enclosed by the existing pecked line on the chart and marked "Limit of Naval Port" is number three area. Bako Ko is no longer considered available as a typhoon anchorage and is to be deleted from the list of such". 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.
