        Sbornik statei po natsionalnomu voprosu [The Collection of Essays on the National Question].

      Tiflis, Izd-vo Zakkraikoma RKP, 1922. - 8vo. (4), 127, (1) pp. Original printed wrappers. The first edition of Stalin's second book; extremely rare. It is widely known that Stalin's role in the party during pre-Revolutionary times was mostly practical: assigned to supply money for the cause by way of expropriations, he became a well-known figure around 1905, and later, during the Civil War, a commander of the Red Army and a party leader. Very little was known of Stalin's political views before Lenin's death in 1924. While Stalin was always regarded as the loyal executor, unlike all other key Bolshevist figures he had not published any significant works - merely occasional articles in which he did not give away a clear position. Stalin became the People's Commissar for the nationalities in 1917 when the position was created. The committee survived until 1924, when the USSR was formed. The present book should be regarded as a collection of his essays on the subject of the national question. One of the principal ideas here advanced by Stalin was that the marginal areas of the Russian Empire should not be separated. He argues that all nations should join in the fight for the world revolution while the colonies of the British Empire ought to be liberated. On this point he contradicts Lenin, who at that time was prepared to grant sovereignty to some nations such as Finland. It is worth noting the author's name on the title page: Stalin used various worknames within and outside the party, largely due to the illicit nature of his pre-revolutionary activity (research has found him to have used nearly 30 party bynames at the time). In this brochure his name is given as "Stalin (Koba-Dzhugashvili)", citing his two most popular worknames and his real Georgian surname which he would not use in later years, and no more books appeared under it. At the time, Stalin was already vying for the party leadership with Trotsky, Kamenev, Zinoviev and others, and he may have felt it necessary to declare himself. - Slight paper loss to title page, meticulously restored with matching paper, with part of a single letter nearly imperceptibly supplied. Otherwise fine. Mostly uncut, untrimmed copy as issued. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      4to. London: Heinemann, [1922]. 4to, xvii, 76 pp. With 24 tipped in titled tissue-guarded color plates and numerous other monochrome illustrations, some full page. Original beige boards stamped in gilt on the upper cover, vellum backstrip lettered in gilt, a bit soiled and dull but fine internally. De luxe edition #389 of an edition limited to 550 copies signed by Rackham. An unusual book for Rackham, but one in which he explored the beauty of sensuality in an enchanted realm (omitting some of Milton's uglier conceits) and gave the poem a new and rather delightful tone.

        Päikseratas: poeem [Wheel of the sun: a poem]. Ellai, no. 2

      Ellai, Võru 1922 - Octavo (17.3 × 12 cm). Original staple-stitched pictorial wrappers by Jaan Vahtra; 29, [1] pp. Printed on laid paper. With twelve smaller (plate measuring ca. 6 x 7 cm.) and one full-page original woodcut prints (plate measuring 12 x 8 cm), as well as the large publisher's device, all by Jaan Vahtra. Wrappers lightly foxed; still a very good copy. The third book of poems by Reiman, beautifully illustrated with Vahtra's woodcuts. The work was overlooked by critics at the time, in part because of its publication in the Estonian province, where Reiman lived. It contains a poetic cycle consisting of twelve poems, each of which represents one month of the year. Friedebert Tuglas, another key representative of Estonian literary modernism, considered Reiman one of the most interesting lyric poets of the time, whose verse was formally complicated to the point of virtuosity. With twelve smaller and one larger woodcut prints by Jaan Vahtra (1882-1947), Estonia's most important representative of expressionist, cubist and constructivist tendencies. Vahtra was trained in Riga and St. Petersburg and, upon returning to Estonia, became associated with the Pallas School and helped found the Group of Estonian Artists, both in Tartu. Beginning in 1923, he developed a distinct cubist and constructivist style that he promoted through his teaching, book illustrations and art practice. Estonian art historian Mai Levin writes: "At that time of stormy innovation the new art was too new to be distinctly analysed and classified. The view of Herwath Walden that expressionism included cubism, futurism and other trends was shared by many [?]. So the works of our cubists-constructivists are until 1923 typically expressionistic, despite a tendency towards a slightly cubistic angularity." This was the second work to appear in the series "Ellai", the first being a bound suite of woodcuts by Vahtra entitled "Blanc et noir" (1921), issued in 100 numbered copies. This title was published in 550 copies (print run stated on colophon). Rare; not found in KVK, OCLC. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Washington Irving Footprints. 21 etchings . First edition. Signed

      New York: Bernhardt Wall, 1922. Sq. 4to, 9 x 10 inches. Bound by Wall in grey cloth spine over etched boards; dust jacket with etched spine label. 21 etchings printed in colors on heavy wove paper (including cover and etcher's slip), of which five etchings are signed. NUMBER 51 OF 200 COPIES SIGNED BY WALL AND LYNCH and with his etcher's slip tipped in. Weber, Following Bernhardt Wall 1872-1956, page 33. Bernhardt Wall was born in Buffalo, New York on Dec. 30, 1872. He studied at the Buffalo Art Student's League then moved on to study in New York under Henry Reuterdahl and also apprenticed under William Auerbach-Levy. Wall began a career as a lithographic illustrator in 1889 working primarily as a commercial artist in New York and Buffalo. He soon became known as the "Postcard King" and designed over 5,000 comic cards. The year1915 marked a defining point in Wall's artistic career. Wall visited Colorado, Nevada and California making etchings of Indians, cowboys and major cities which were later published in a portfolio entitled, "Under Western Skies." These proved to be very successful and the artist shortly thereafter moved to California permanently. Wall continued to produce many fine etchings of the American West and by 1930 had also become a much respected historian of the region. Bernhardt Wall was unique in that he not only drew the etchings for his books, but he also printed and bound them. His books are in libraries and universities around the world including the British Museum, Library of Congress, the libraries of Harvard, Yale, Columbia, and Brown Universities. His works were also in the private collections of J. P. Morgan, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Henry C. Frick and Dr. N.C. Mathewson. Wall etched three sitting presidents of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt, Warren Taft, and Henry Coolidge. Other prominent individuals etched by Wall include Sam Houston, Mark Twain, Thomas A. Edison, Abraham Lincoln, and Andrew Jackson. Artist and historian, Bernhardt Wall (1872-1956) was a pioneer etcher and producer of fine press books who treated a vast array of subjects, including Texas and the Southwest. Historians of fine press printing have compared him to William Blake. This collection of Wall's scrapbooks, publications, and correspondence was built by collector Natalie Williams of Marshall, Texas.

        Osvobozena slova (Les mots en liberté futuristes). II. vydání. Translated into Czech by J. Macák. Josef Capek graphics

      Prague: Petr a Tvdrý 1922 - Octavo 20x13.5 cm., original wrappers, 85pp. with four foldouts. Second edition. Linocut cover & page design by Josef Capek. This second Czech edition of Macak's translation was a highly inventive response to Marinetti’s visit to Prague in December 1921 and can be seen as the most creative exercise in Futurist books published in Czech. Capek’s graphic work on this went beyond mere replication of the original graphics, employing the alphabetical symbols and phonetics unique to the Czech language. The publication had a major impact in the Czech publishing world and led to further developments in typography and book design. It is probably also one Josef Capek’s most radical design statements in his long career of bookmaking, especially in the foldouts. Primus No. 6.

        Anna Pavlova; Translated from the Russian by A. Grey

      Paris: M. de Brunoff, 1922. First edition in English, limited issue, number 76 of 300 copies signed by the publisher, ADDITIONALLY SIGNED BY ANNA PAVLOVA on the half-title. Folio (13 x 10 inches). Half-title. Woodcuts by D. Galanis; 22 plates with tissue guards, complete, INCLUDING EIGHT BY LÉON BAKST, of which 13 in color; illustrations, some mounted, in text. Original printed wrappers, edges untrimmed; decorated gilt-paper slipcase. Spine perished, toned semicircle around slipcase opening on sides; some foxing internally but otherwise clean and crisp. A beautifully produced celebration of the life of renowned ballerina Anna Pavlova (1881-1931). The author was the leading Russian critic of the period. This lavish work is scarce in any condition (either in German, French or English) and aside from the damage to the fragile spine (too delicate for a heavy volume such as this), the present is a very well preserved and complete copy.

        The Writings of Lafcadio Hearn, Large-Paper Edition, In Sixteen Volumes (with MSS leaf of Lafcadio Hearn and autograph of Mrs. Hearn [Setsuko Koizumi])

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company (Printed at the Riverside Press), 1922. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. Olcott, Charles S.; Homes, Burton. No. 36 of 750 copies, set complete, 8vo - over 7.75" to 9.75" tall, approx. 6,400 pp. to the set. The collected works of Lafcadio Hearn, including "Creole Sketches", published in this set for the first time. Published posthumously, it includes, in Volume I, both a tipped-in leaf of Hearn's writing, in a lovely, flowing hand, describing crowds moving along a foot-path "You can proceed even quickly by moving with either stream; but you cannot proceed against it; - only an insane or drunken person is likely to attempt such a thing"; there is also inserted into Volume I the signature of Setsuko Koizumi (Mrs. Hearn), in Japanese, with her chop. ***ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Patrick Lafcadio Hearn (1850-1904) had in his family background blood both Greek and Arab, Irish and Gypsy. Born in Greece, raised in Ireland, at the age of 19 he emigrated to the United States spending time in Cincinnati and New Orleans, whence sprang the Creole Sketches. He eventually travelled for work (newspaper reporting) to the West Indies and thence to Japan, where he found his true home. He married into a Samurai family to Setsuko Koizumi and had four children, fully immersing himself into the Japanese culture. Largely unknown to westeners at the time, his writings on the customs, religions and literature of Japan were avidly read; although Hearn would come to condenm the Westernization of Japan, he accepted its inevitability, and attepted to describe the county even as it was changing. ***DESCRIPTION: Sixteen volumes (complete), bound in half-leather over tan cloth boards, front and back covers without ornamentation, spine with gilt lettering and the small decoration of a crane, all outlined with a gilt rectangle, top edges gilt, fore- and bottom edges rough-cut, grey and white mottled paper endpapers, bookplate of Andrew F. Burke (as noted below) on the front pastedown of each volume, each volume has a tipped-in full-colour illustration as a frontispiece with lettered tissue-guard, title pages in red and black, publisher's device on title pages, limitation statement on the copyright page with this set being no. 36 of 750, additional photographs and illustrations throughout, both black-and-white and colour (including several of Mr. Hearn's family), each with its lettered tissue-guard, original ribbon markers; octavo size (just over 8.5" tall), pagination for each volume between 313 and 512 pp., the total for the set approximately 6,400 pp. ***CONDITION: The set could almost be called fine; the bindings are clean and almost without wear, the corners are straight and unrubbed, text blocks are strong and square, the hinges solid, the interiors are clean and bright, and other than the bookplates of Mr. Burke are free of prior owner markings. The spines are sunned and there is some offsetting to the endpapers from the turn-ins, else fine. ***CITATIONS: BAL no. 7977, Perkins pp. 81-84. ***PROVENANCE: From the library of, and with the Ex-Libris bookplates of, Andrew F. Burke, noted San Francisco attorney; his extensive library was dispersed at sale in 2017, the books coming from the home in Pacific Heights where Mr. Burke and his family lived for 90 years. ***POSTAGE: Due to the weight of this set, please note that additional postage will apply, please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        The Snakes of the Philippine Islands

      Manila: Bureau of Printing, 1922. First edition.. Light tanning to the title page, a bright and clean copy in near fine condition in a very attractive leather binding.. Pp. 312; 37 full page plates (black-and-white photos, line-drawings and halftones), 32 text-figures (line-drawings). Recent one-half black morocco leather, spine with five raised bands set off by gilt panel lines, over green marbled boards with matching marbled endpapers, lg 8vo. This is the very rare first printing of this important monograph on the snakes of the Philippines. The scarcity of the work is due to its small print run and its exposure to the tropical climate of Manila where it was published. The author spent many months in the Philippines studying more than 3000 snakes stored in the Bureau of Science and other local institutions. Due to exhaustive nature of Taylor's studies, this monograph still stands as a major reference source 95 years after its publication. No ownership marks and few signs of use.

        NOVA PANTOLOGIJA PELENGIRIKE. [Neue pelengyrische Panthologie]

      VINAVER Stanislav: NOVA PANTOLOGIJA PELENGIRIKE. [Neue pelengyrische Panthologie]. Beograd: Izdanje »Biblioteke Misao« 1922. Erstausgabe dieser Sammlung geistreicher Parodien aus der Feder des serbischen Autors, Übersetzers (Poe, Rabelais) und Literaturkritikers Stanislav Vinaver (1891-1955). Vinaver verfasste u.a. ein »Manifest des Expressionismus« und lieferte Beiträge für die Zeitschriften Zenit (Nrn. 1-6) und Putevi (Nrn. 1-2). Ein erster Band ähnlicher Texte war bereits im Jahr 1920 unter dem Titel Pantologija. Novije srprske pelengirike im Belgrader Vlg. »Napredak« erschienen. - Ausgehend vom Kunstwort »pelengirike« (pelen = Wermut) im Titel verballhornt Vinaver hier die vom einflußreichen Literaturkritiker Bogdan Popović im Jahr 1911 hg. Anthologie neuer serbischer Lyrik. Der modernistisch orientierte Vinaver, seit einem Aufenthalt in Petrograd (1917-19) mit Aleksandr Blok und dem russischen Symbolismus bekannt, lehnte das in Popović's Anthologie vertretene traditionelle Literaturverständnis ab und setzte stattdessen auf die Avantgarde, zu deren markantesten Belgrader Vertretern er zählte. Umschlag an den Ecken und Kanten stellenweise geringfügig bestoßen und mit Knickfalten, Rücken leicht gebräunt, sonst wohl erhaltenes Exemplar dieser seltenen Broschur mit einer kongenialen Umschlagzeichnung nach dem Motto: »Im Witz liegt der Schrecken.«. Vloemans 129, 226; Markić, Zenitizam, 257; Siegel, Serbische Avantgarde, 384f.
