        The Waste Land

      Boni & Liveright 1922 - Second printing. Number 548/1,000 (stamped in type 2-mm high, per Gallup A6b) of the second impression limited to just 1000 copies. (Though stated as the "second edition" on the colophon page, this second impression of 1000 copies was printed from the same setting of type as the first printing and is more accurately termed, as listed in Gallup, the "second impression.") With the incorrect 'mount in,' line 339, p. 41. Slim octavo; 64pp. Publisher's stiff black cloth, the spine and upper cover lettered in gilt, all edges deckled; in the original salmon-pink dust jacket printed in black. Near Fine to Fine with just a slight bump to the top of the spine. Almost certainly unread with many pages still uncut. The gilt lettering is clean and fresh and the black boards show no discoloration. The mylar protected dust jacket is Near Fine without any restoration. There is a 1 cm closed tear to the bottom of the front panel and a light 4 mm by 3 mm stain in the text box on the front panel. Some mild darkening to the spine and the top edge of the front panel. There are a couple of very minor “smudges” to the jacket panels. The rear flap has been folded twice at the lower right hand corner. The largest of the two folds is 2 1/4" in length). The lettering on the spine is somewhat off-center and rolls over to the back of the dust jacket. From the estate of Scofield Thayer, benefactor of the arts and publisher of the literary magazine THE DIAL from 1920 to 1926. Thayer was a school friend of Eliot and arranged for Eliot to be the 1922 recipient of the Dial $2,000 annual award to a young American writer. The award is noted on the front panel of the dust cover. Overall a simply remarkable copy of one of the most famous poetic works of the Twentieth Century. We grade our books conservatively to insure your satisfaction. Photos happily provided on request. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

It formed part of the Allan D.

      Paris Shakespeare Press Paris 1922 - First edition, number 619 of 750 copies on handmade paper, from a total edition of 1000 copies. Original 'Greek flag' blue-green wrappers, lettered in white to upper cover. A very good copy indeed with bright colouring which shows a little wear to the spine ends and a couple of paper repairs to the spine. Internally clean and fresh. A well preserved example of a fragile book. Housed in a custom-made chemise and quarter morocco slipcase. The author's most famous work and tour de force of modern literature. On the recommendation of Ezra Pound, Margaret Andersen serialised the novel in her "Little Review" between 1918 and 1921. Although the serialisation was completed, it ultimately finished The Little Review and led to its editors being tried for obscenity. As a result of this debacle, Joyce feared that even should he be able to find a publisher, the act of serialisation and the stigma attached to the following court case would make the novel unsaleable. It was to Sylvia Beach and her small Parisian bookshop, Shakespeare and Company that Joyce turned. Beach, like Andersen before her, had immediately seen the genius in Ulysses, and wrote to her mother that she might be soon to publish "the most important book of the age". It was decided to publish 1000 copies by subscription. 100 copies on Holland handmade paper (signed), 150 copies on vergé d'Arches and 750 copies on linen. A further 20 copies were produced, unwrappered on mixed paper and marked, "press copy". A printer was found in Maurice Darantière of Dijon and publication was planned for October. The printing process was not nearly as straightforward as anticipated, due in part to Joyce's continual rewriting of the text and his and Beach's perfectionism in the printing process. The publication date was continually moved back and eventually 2 February 1922, Joyce's birthday, was settled upon. But even then only two copies were ready, sent by Darantière via the Paris-Dijon express. One was put on display at Shakespeare and Company and the other taken, unopened by Joyce, to his birthday celebrations at the Italian restaurant, Ferrari's. "He had brought with him a package containing his copy of Ulysses, and placed it under his chair. Nora remarked that he had thought about the book for sixteen years, and spent seven years writing it. Everyone asked to see it opened, but he seemed to shrink from producing it. After the dessert he at last untied the parcel and laid the book on the table. It was bound in the Greek colours - white letters on a blue field - that he considered lucky for him, and suggesting the myth of Greece and Homer, the white island raising from the sea. There was a toast to the book and its author which left Joyce deeply moved" (Richard Ellman - James Joyce). The remaining copies were delivered in tranches and all 1000 of the first edition were sold within a month. It is now recognised as one of the key works of the twentieth century and the defining work of the modernist movement.

      Shakespeare and Company, Paris 1922 - The true First Printing of this modern classic. Copy #482 of 750 numbered copies printed on handmade paper of a total edition of only 1000. Bound without the original blue paper covers in half brown morocco with matching corners, spine lettered in gilt, with a matching half morocco slipcase. A very nice copy priced very attractively because the half title and title pages are in expert facsimile. There is also a facsimile corner repair to one page. The initial and rear blanks as well as the colophon leaf at the end are lacking; the limitation leaf at the beginning is original. In order to bring the book into an English-speaking country before 1934, a number of people evidently tore off the wraps and title pages to smuggle it in through customs. If you can live with this, you will have on your shelf perhaps the most notable work of fiction written in the twentieth century at a price you are not likely to encounter elsewhere. Despite the defects, Very Good in a handsome slipcase. Scarce [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Vignettes Décoratives Dans Le Goût Du Jour. Documents d&#39;Art. Art appliqué français moderne

      1922. Paris, Éditions Albert Morancé, 1922. 8 pp (titlepage & introduction by G. Umbdenstock) & 30 hand-coloured plates loosely held in original half cloth portfolio with ties. (some fingerstains). Thirty hand-coloured plates with art-nouveau motives in vivid colours. These designs were created as a reaction against the too charged decorations at the end of the 19th century. Henri Gillet was one of the most well-known French decorators of the Art-Nouveau period. Umbdenstock in his introduction says that the most remarkable thing about Gillet&#39;s designs is the apparently effortlessness with which they were created; they all seem simple and are very elegant. The harmony of colours is striking. They are either vivid colours with contrast colours or nuances of one and the same colour. A beautiful book.
