      London, New York, Toronto and Melbourne: Cassell and Company, Ltd, [1922] - Octavo, pp. [1-8] 1-307 [308] [309-310: blank] [note: last leaf is a blank], original green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in black. First edition. The contents of the Cassell edition differ from those in American edition published by Harper in 1922. The Cassell edition has the eight tales featuring Horne Fisher and the four-part "The Trees of Pride," plus three stories not in the Harper edition; "The Garden of Smoke," "The Five of Swords" and "The Tower of Treason." "The Garden of Smoke" is a murder mystery about roses and drugs. As is typical with Chesterton, it's also about the flimsiness of appearances and the paradox that the only really solid things are those that are unseen. A whiff of fantasy hangs over the story with its premise of a special, very rare kind of opium so good that it not only supplies the needed inspiration for "a famous lady novelist and fashionable poet," but the motivation for a murder. As is also typical with Chesterton, the male characters here and in the following story move about (deliberately or helplessly) on a plane of irony, while the heroine moves about on a plane of romance. "The Trees of Pride" is longer, more ambitious and more fantastic, dealing with the legend and superstitions surrounding a stand of peacock trees, a flamboyant Asian/African species that has been imported to a seaside town in Cornwall. The locals believe them responsible for a spate of recent deaths and disappearances in the town and want to cut them down. The owner of the estate, one of those "advanced" and "enlightened" specimens of modernity that Chesterton loves to attack, refuses. The arrival of an American critic and the local poet he has discovered provide the catalyst for what follows: the disappearance and presumed death of the estate owner after he announces angrily that he is going to spend the night in the grove of demon trees to dispel the local superstitions. The mystery is resolved with a kind of triple reverse as the supernatural gives way to the criminal, which gives way to the humorous, which gives way, once again, to the supernatural. The story has something of the feeling of Chesterton's fantasy masterpiece, THE MAN WHO WAS THURSDAY, as the reader falls through one trap door after another. The most explicit serious theme here is that elites should not be quick to dismiss a thing just because it is held true by the masses. The background legend from North Africa about the carnivorous peacock trees constitutes a very attractive and potently weird storyette; this and the ambiguity surrounding them in modern Cornwall allow for this story to be classified as fantastic. "The Five of Spades" is a murder mystery set in France amid the intersecting worlds of dueling and business. It blends cleverness (in its detection), idealism (in its romance), urbanity (in its cultural insights) and an abiding sense of mystery (in both the macrocosm of its plot and the microcosm of its aphorisms) as one seeming truth gives way, like a discarded mask, to another, and another, and so on: all of it adding up that characteristic Chestertonian bravura whose exuberant levity is exactly balanced by its moral gravity. The same could be said of "The Tower of Treason" (or, indeed, to one degree or another, of everything else that the author wrote), which moves the setting from the bright plains of France to the dark mountains of an unspecified Balkan country, from the busy doings of the secular to the intricate broodings of the monastic. The story involves diamonds and history, treason and sacrifice, each one indestructible, disappearing only to come back in faint echoes or brilliant flashes. This, the final story of the collection, closes it out on a more overtly religious note - or chord - reminding us that, at the very heart of Christianity and shot through it, is that Chestertonian trademark, paradox, the paradox of sacrifice, divine and human, which wears a mask of loss only to stand revealed in the final act as ultimate [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        The Waste Land

      Boni and Liveright, New York 1922 - FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE, FIRST STATE of the most influential poem of the twentieth century. Complete with the extremely rare dust jacket and glassine. With important provenance: from the estate of Scofield Thayer. "Assembled out of dramatic vignettes based on Eliot's London life, The Waste Land's extraordinary intensity stems from a sudden fusing of diverse materials into a rhythmic whole of great skill and daring. Though it would be forced into the mold of an academic set piece on the order of Milton's 'Lycidas,' The Waste Land was at first correctly perceived as a work of jazzlike syncopation--and, like 1920s jazz, essentially iconoclastic. A poem suffused with Eliot's horror of life, it was taken over by the postwar generation as a rallying cry for its sense of disillusionment. Pound, who helped pare and sharpen the poem when Eliot stopped in Paris on his way to and from Lausanne, praised it with a godparent's fervor. As important, Eliot's old friend Thayer, by then publisher of the Dial, decided even before he had seen the finished poem to make it the centerpiece of the magazine's attempt to establish American letters in the vanguard of modern culture. To secure The Waste Land for the Dial, Thayer arranged in 1922 to award Eliot the magazine's annual prize of two thousand dollars and to trumpet The Waste Land's importance with an essay commissioned from the Dial's already influential Edmund Wilson. It did not hurt that 1922 also saw the long-heralded publication of Ulysses, or that in 1923 Eliot linked himself and Joyce with Albert Einstein in the public mind in an essay entitled 'Ulysses, Order and Myth.' Meteorically, Eliot, Joyce, and, to a lesser extent, Pound were joined in a single glow--each nearly as notorious as Picasso" (American National Biography). Provenance: From the estate of Scofield Thayer, Eliot's good friend and the publisher of the Dial, who awarded Eliot the Dial's 1922 annual literary prize and was instrumental in getting the poem published. This copy has never been in circulation - it has come directly from the Thayer estate, with an accompanying letter of provenance. #91 of 1000 copies published. One of approximately 500 copies of the first issue, with flexible black cloth binding and stamped limitation number 5mm high. With first state of text ("mountain") on page 41. With advertising bookmark presumably issued with the book laid-in. New York: Boni and Liveright, 1922. Octavo, original flexible black cloth, original glassine, original dust jacket; custom half-leather box. Book with pristine text entirely unopened, but with damage to the cloth on the upper joint and a little fraying at top corner and bottom edge. Glassine with wear and chips corresponding to the damage in cloth; dust jacket exceptionally clean and fresh with only chips to spine ends. EXTREMELY SCARCE complete with dust jacket and glassine, and with a significant provenance. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Boni & Liveright (1922) [i.e., 1923], New York - Stiff black boards. Stated "Second Edition" in the colophon, this is actually a second impression of the First Edition from the same setting of type but with a different colophon and with the reading "mount in" on page 41 uncorrected. Gallup A-6b. Copy #734 of 1000 numbered copies. Though not identified as such, this copy is 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 $2000 annual award to a young American writer. The award is noted on the front panel of the dustwrapper. Mostly unopened. A spectacular copy of both the book and the dustwrapper, just as new as the day it was published [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Boni and Liveright, New York 1922 - An Unopened Copy in Virtually Mint ConditionOf the Second Impression of Eliot's Masterpiece. 197 x 130 mm (7 3/4 x 5 1/8"). 64 pp. ONE OF 1,000 COPIES of the Second Edition/Impression (see below). (This is copy #546.). Original black buckram, gilt titling on upper cover and spine, UNOPENED. In original pale orange dust jacket with black lettering. Gallup A-6b. Slight uniform fading to the spine of the dust jacket, but AS CLOSE TO A MINT COPY AS ONE COULD HOPE TO FIND--A SURELY UNSURPASSABLE COPY, the jacket virtually untouched, and with the unopened text obviously never read. This is an absolutely sparkling, once-in-a-decade copy of Eliot's masterpiece, which Day has called "the most discussed poem of the 20th century." An attack on the sterility and futility of modern life, the poem perfectly captured the disillusionment of the generation that had fought the Great War, and it was an immediate sensation. DNB describes it as "an iconoclastic and provocative work of jazz-like syncopation," observing that its "extraordinary intensity stems from a sudden fusing of diverse materials into a rhythmic whole of great skill and daring." Thomas Stearns Eliot (1888-1965) was born in St. Louis and educated at Harvard, but never really felt at home in America. He moved to Britain in 1914, becoming a citizen in 1927. Clever and socially adept, he quickly became a part of the post-war literary scene in London, where, ANB notes, he "gained a reputation in the world of belles-lettres as an observer who could shrewdly judge both accepted and experimental art from a platform of apparently enormous learning." The success of "The Waste Land" opened new doors for Eliot: a position as an editor at a publishing house allowed him to leave his boring day job at a London bank and freed him to spend more time on his writing. He went on to author a number of acclaimed poems and dramas, as well as perceptive literary criticism, but "The Waste Land" will always be the work most associated with his name. As Gallup indicates, our volume was probably published early in 1923, after 1,000 copies of the first printing were issued in 1922. Gallup says that although our printing is "called 'Second Edition' in the colophon, this is actually a second impression from the same setting of type as the first edition, but with a different colophon." In all its important particulars, our copy agrees with copies from the later part of the first impression press run: the "a" in our copy has dropped out of "mountain" in line 339 of p. 41; our binding is stiff (not flexible) boards; and our copy number is in stamped numbers 2 mm. (not 5 mm.) high. ONE OF 1,000 COPIES of the Second Edition/Impression (see below). (This is copy #546.) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Waste Land

      Boni & Liveright 1922 [1923?], New York - Number 369 (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, clean and complete, the gilt lettering still bright, with minor bumping to the spine ends; flawed by dark offsetting from paper laid in between the rear end papers and between pp. 38-39 and light chipping to the top of the half title and title pages where the uncut pages were opened carelessly; otherwise a bright, unmarred, very lightly read copy with no names, bookplates, or writing. The jacket is Near Fine or better without restoration, the front and back panel clean and complete—indeed Fine—but the spine darkened with trivial rubbing to the ends and a small sliver of loss mid-spine, not affecting any lettering. Overall, a remarkable, highly collectible copy of likely the century's most important poetic work. Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves.

      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.

The initial and rear blanks as well as the colophon leaf at the end are lacking; the limitation leaf at the beginning is original.

        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.
