        [Archive]: Organized Crime

      Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, 1922. Very Good. A collection of ephemera following gangster Eddie Egan's life in organized crime before it ended with his death in 1926. All items are very good or better with some age toning and tears. A small archive of items relating to mobster Eddie Egan in the 1920s compiled by his wife, Ethel. Egan worked for the Mob in the 1920s and was primarily based in Chicago, but also worked in New York and Los Angeles. He was a noted gambler and died prematurely in 1926 in a shooting presumably at the hands of a rival gangster. The archive includes 8 letters, business cards, newspaper clippings, and telegrams related to Egan's career in organized crime. Egan had ties with Mob Kingpin, Arnold Rothstein a boss he worked for out of New York who makes appearances in the archive as "Rothstein" and "Mr. R." A letter from 1922 to Eddie reads, "tell Mr. R that I think I can get things in shape to "grab" it if he likes, but I don't want him to talk to anybody about it, because there are other people well acquainted with the race horse game, and then I couldn't get it." The letter also says, "tell Rothstein I can't do anything because I don't know what to do, but am willing to help anyway I can." The same correspondence requests the address for Abe Attell, the boxer and mob associate known to have helped "fix" the 1919 White Sox Baseball World Series. Other known mobsters include William R. Johnson aka "Big Bill Johnson" the "reputed overlord of Chicago gambling." A letter to Egan from Johnson dated 1925 discusses a trial and leaving the country to avoid prosecution. The letter is vague, as most organized crime members kept details to themselves. One line reads, "well pal about that other stuff we where [sic] talking about that transfer has not come up as yet but it is expected in the next week or ten days so I don't want you to think that I forgot my promise." After Egan's death Johnson sent Ethel Egan, Eddie's widow, $500 by telegram with a note that read, "my heartfelt sympathy." Another letter written to Ethel from a gangster, Bernie Chapman, discusses the trial of her husband's killers. "They had the trial today and they both pleaded guilty. The one that did the shooting got life and the other one from 5 years to life. There was very little to it. It certainly was a terrible blow to us all when it happened especially yourself -- but time heals all wounds and we just have to make the best of it." Another note written to Ethel from a mob associate asks her for money owned to him by Eddie and a missing ring. Other items include business cards from various steak houses in Chicago, race forms, a membership card from Los Angeles' Jonathan Club, and newspaper clippings including one of Josephine Baker which shows step by step instructions for the "Conga."An interesting collection of organized crime related material from the 1920s.

        Typed Letter Signed

      New York: np, 1922. First edition. Very Good. HOUDINI, PRAISING "DOGGED DETERMINATION" AND "STICK-TO-IT-IVNESS", OFFERS HIS ADVICE ON THE SECRET TO SUCCESS. The letter, responding to a request by an American teacher S.D. Green to offer inspiring words to his students, is typed on Houdini's letterhead and singed in ink "Houdini". It reads in full: 278 W. 113th St. New York, N.Y. October 6, 1922. Mr. S. D. Green, Department of Business Instruction, Trenton, N. J. Dear Sir: - Just returned from Boston where I have been appearing in person with my latest production "The Man from Beyond", therefore my apparent procrastination in answering your letter of Sept. 18. You ask me to inspire a double quartette of boys to do better work in school, to be better citizens in the business world. What could be a better example than your "stick-to-itveness" [sic] in having written three letters until you pugnaciousness has caused me to write this letter. The one great way to succeed in the world is to make up your mind to do certain things, go after them and get them and if they follow your example, they must succeed. I have had a young man come into my office for five months. There was nothing for him to do but last night I had to rush him per special automobile to get the Wolverine express to get in Detroit in time. Had he not possessed the dogged determination to get a position in this field he would have been entirely forgotten. Trust that the boys will look upon this example right in their midst as a far better example than going abroad and looking for the bluebird. Regards, Sincerely yours, [Signed] Houdini HH:JS Houdini was famous for insisting that he didn't have any special talents or magical abilities, but that his success was the product of intense hard work and practice. In an oft-quoted passage from a 1918 interview in American Magazine, he explains: "You must not think for one moment that these things came easy to me; that I have done them because, for instance, I have 'double joints,' as they are called. I have only to look at the mirror to see the results of the hard, grueling work I have gone through. The constant mental and physical strain has turned my hair gray; and, at forty-six, I look ten years older than I really am... No one except myself can appreciate how I have to work at this job every single day, never letting up for a moment... In each tow where I play I hire an empty stable, or loft, or room, and here I put in hours upon hours of study and experiment. But when I have perfected a thing after weeks and months of study and practice, there is a sense of satisfaction I cannot describe...." Written at the height of his fame, the letter to Mr. Green underscores Houdini's deeply-held belief in hard work and dedication. Note: "The Man from Beyond," which Houdini mentions in the first sentence of the letter was a silent movie he starred in; it opened a few months earlier in April 1922. WITH: A subsequent typed letter signed to Mr. Green from 1924 reading: Dear Mr. Green: -     Your letter was mixed up with a bunch of mail. Came to light this morning. You have my permission to use the letter written to you by me on October 6, 1922, for the purpose stated in your letter. Will you kindly change the tautology in the fourth paragraph where I say "to get the Wolverine Express, to get to Detroit". Trusting you will attend to this. Sincerely yours, [Signed] Houdini HH:JS Main letter: One sheet of 8x10.5 inch letterhead with Houdini's image on the top left. New York: October 6, 1922. Usual folds; fine condition with very strong Houdini signature. Subsequent letter: 5.5 x 8.5 inch sheet letterhead, usual folds. A RARE LETTER REVEALING AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF HOUDINI'S PHILOSOPHY.

        Typed Letter Signed

      New York: np, 1922. First edition. nb. Very Good. A VIRTUAL MANIFESTO OF ROOSEVELT'S POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY WRITTEN AT A CRITICAL MOMENT IN HIS CAREER. The letter, responding to a request by an American teacher S.D. Green to offer inspiring words to his students, is typed on Roosevelt's "Emmet, Marvin & Roosevelt" law firm stationery, and reads in full:October 3, 1922 My dear Sir:I am glad to send a message to the young men and young women who are training for business under your supervision in the Senior High School of Trenton.I think I will pass on to them a remark made to me many years' ago by James Bryce, author of the "American Commonwealth", at the time he was Ambassador in Washington. He said, "America will continue to keep on prospering and growing in greatness if its people will continue first, to take an interest in their fellow-citizens of every kind, and secondly, to place public good ahead of private gain."In this day and generation we run the danger of living too narrowly in our own little corner, - of thinking only in terms of our own business, and our own personal friends. The man or woman who has an understanding of the point of view of those in other spheres of activity and other walks of life will have the broad understanding that means the greatest kind of success. Furthermore, Lord Bryce was right in saying that the public good must come ahead of our private gains. The best citizen, and incidentally, the happiest citizen, is not the one who has made the most money, but is the one who has taken his share of the duties of citizenship.One hears much, especially in the career of business, that is uncomplimentary to those who run our public affairs. The man who kicks most is usually the one who doesn't even bother to vote on Election day. It is absolutely true that our government will be only as good as we want it to be! If every business man and every business woman will take a personal interest in public affairs in the next generation, and we will try to view public matters rom the broadest standpoint of the whole nation, our government in nation, state and community will vastly improve.Blind partisanship, or voting always one way because one's family always did, or because it is the fashion, is almost as dangerous as not voting at all. Don't forget that even the methods of government will progress and new things will come in just as they did in business. Don't be standpatters in your business affairs. A real Progressive in business, should be a real Progressive in public and community life.The coming generation has in its hands the making of the new America. We cannot stand still - we will either go forward or slip back as a nation. That decision will rest upon the young men and women who are now in high school.Very sincerely yours,[Signed] Franklin D RooseveltAt the time of this letter, in 1922, Roosevelt was in an uncertain state in his career. He was stricken with polio only a year earlier and after serving as Assistant Secretary of the Navy under Woodrow Wilson and running for vice-president on the 1920 Democratic ticket (with James M. Cox), it now seemed extremely doubtful that Roosevelt would be able to re-enter political life at a high level.It wasn't long, however, before Roosevelt was again a major figure in public life. "In 1924 he made a dramatic appearance at the Democratic convention to nominate Alfred E. Smith, governor of New York, for president, and he repeated his nomination of Smith at the 1928 convention. Smith, in turn, urged Roosevelt to run for governor of New York in 1928. Roosevelt was at first reluctant but eventually agreed. As he traveled by automobile around the state, Roosevelt demonstrated that his illness had not destroyed the youthful resilience and vitality that had led people such as [Louis McHenry] Howe to predict great political success. He also showed that he had matured into a more serious person, one now with a keen appreciation for life's hardships" (Britannica).Roosevelt would, of course, become the next governor of New York, an office that would help propel him to the U.S. presidency in 1932.WITH: Two additional letters signed by Roosevelt. One typed letter signed giving permission for Mr. Green to use the previous letter "as you suggest", and one autograph letter signed to Mr. Green mentioning that he is enclosing a signed copy of his book "Whither Bound" [not included here], adding "I hope you have liked this little message of hope to the younger people."New York: October 3, 1922. One sheet, 8.5 x 11 inches (typed on one side only) of Roosevelt's law firm stationery. A few spots of light soiling, usual folds; in outstanding condition. Other two letters to Mr. Green: May 9, 1924 on Roosevelt's Fidelity and Deposit Co. stationery, one side 7.25 x 10.5 inches; Nov 27, 1927 on Warm Spring Georgia letterhead (Roosevelt frequently visited Warm Springs for treatment for his illness), one side (6 x 7 inches).AN IMPORTANT ROOSEVELT LETTER REVEALING THE ESSENCE OF HIS POLITICAL BELIEFS.

        Album des dames, leurs modes et frivolités (Croquis, La Gazette du Bon ton, 1922 n°1)

      Set of eight original prints in color, drawn on laid paper. The boards are introduced by a text signed Joan Ramon Fernandez. The sketches are signed XIX and XXI David, respectively on the lower right and left boards.Original prints made ??for the illustration of The Gazette fashionable, one of the finest and most influential twentieth century fashion magazines, celebrating the talent of creators and artists French burgeoning art deco.Famous fashion magazine founded in 1912 by Lucien Vogel, The Gazette fashionable appeared until 1925 with an interruption during the War of 1915 to 1920, due to mobilization of its editor. She is 69 Deliveries from just 2000 copies and is illustrated including 573 color plates and 148 sketches depicting models of fashion designers. Upon publication, these luxury publications "are for bibliophiles and worldly aesthetes" (Françoise Tétart-Vittu "good Gazette of tone" in the fashion dictionary, 2016). Printed on fine laid paper, they use a typeface created specifically for the magazine by Georges Peignot, the Cochin character, taken in 1946 by Christian Dior. The prints are made with the technique of metal stencil, enhanced color and some outlined in gold or palladium.The adventure began in 1912 when Lucien Vogel, man of the world and fashion - it has already participated in Femina magazine - decided to found with his wife Cosette de Brunhoff (John's sister, the father of Babar) Gazette good tone in which the subtitle is then "Art, fashions and frivolities." Georges Charensol quotes the editor: "In 1910, he observed, there was no truly artistic fashion magazine and representative of the spirit of his time. So I thought of making a glossy magazine with truly modern artists [...] I was certain of success because for any fashion country can compete with France. "(" A great art editor. Lucien Vogel "in literary News, No. 133, May 1925). The success of the magazine is immediate, not only in France but also the US and South America.Originally, Vogel therefore brings together a group of seven artists: André-Édouard Marty and Pierre Brissaud, followed by Georges Lepape and Dammicourt; and finally his friends from the School of Fine Arts as are George Barbier, Bernard Boutet de Monvel or Charles Martin. Other talents come quickly reach the equipped Guy Arnoux, Léon Bakst, Benito, Boutet de Monvel, Umberto Brunelleschi, Chas Laborde, Jean-Gabriel Domergue, Raoul Dufy, Edward Halouze Alexander Iacovleff, Jean Emile Laboureur Charles Loupot, Charles Martin, Maggie Salcedo. These artists, mostly unknown when Lucien Vogel appealed to them, will eventually become iconic figures and artistic sought. These are the same illustrators who make the drawings advertisements Gazette.The boards highlight the dresses and sublime seven artists of the time: Lanvin, Doeuillet, Paquin, Poiret, Worth, Vionnet and Doucet. The designers provide for each number of exclusive models. Nevertheless, some of Illustrations contained no real model, but only the idea that the illustrator is done in the fashion of the day.Gazette fashionable is a milestone in the history of fashion. Combining the aesthetic requirement and plastic unit, it brings together for the first time the great talents of the world of arts, literature and fashion and imposed by this alchemy, a new image of women, slender, independent and bold, also driven by the new generation of designers Coco Chanel, Jean Patou, Rochas Marcel ...Recovery in 1920 by Condé Montrose Nast, Gazette fashionable modeled for the new composition and the aesthetic choices of the "little dying newspaper" that Nast had bought a few years ago: the Vogue magazine.

        The Waste Land, 1st edition, 2nd state

      New York: Boni & Liveright, 1922 A near-fine copy of one of the twentieth century's most important literary works in any language. No. 637 of 1000 copies of the first printing. The second, approximately 500 copies of this first printing were bound in stiff black cloth with gilt titling on the front cover and spine and the copy number stamped on the colophon in 2-mm type; the word "mountain" is printed as "mount in" on line 339, p. 41. (Gallup A6a.) The dustjacket is lacking, but the book is near fine in old glassine chipped at the spine. There are no internal defects except the expected darkening of the paper toward the edges and a couple of very light, old pencil codes on the endpapers that can be removed easily. A glossy, dark-blue Gotham Book Mart label with gold lettering decorates the bottom inside edge of the rear cover. There may be some very slight fading of the spine, but it is difficult to tell through the glassine. The gilt cover titling appears very fresh. The glassine is attached to itself inside the covers with glassine tabs front and back (not pressure-sensitive tape) and cannot be removed without destroying it. **Free domestic or international shipping with direct order.

        The Works.

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1922-36 Galsworthy was born at what is now known as Galsworthy House (then called Parkhurst)[1] on Kingston Hill in Surrey, England, the son of John and Blanche Bailey (née Bartleet) Galsworthy. His family was prosperous and well established, with a large property in Kingston upon the Thames that is now the site of three schools: Marymount International School, Rokeby Preparatory School, and Holy Cross Preparatory School. He attended Harrow and New College, Oxford. He took a Second in Law (Jurisprudentia) at Oxford in 1889,[2] then trained as a barrister and was called to the bar in 1890. However, he was not keen to begin practicing law and instead traveled abroad to look after the family's shipping business. During these travels he met Joseph Conrad, then the first mate of a sailing-ship moored in the harbor of Adelaide, Australia, and the two future novelists became close friends. In 1895 Galsworthy began an affair with Ada Nemesis Pearson Cooper (1864-1956), the wife of his cousin Major Arthur Galsworthy. After her divorce ten years later, they were married on 23 September 1905 and stayed together until his death in 1933. Before their marriage, they often stayed clandestinely in a farmhouse called Wingstone in the village of Manaton on Dartmoor, Devon.[3] In 1908 Galsworthy took a long lease on part of the building and it was their regular second home until 1923.[3]From the Four Winds, a collection of short stories was Galsworthy's first published work in 1897. These and several subsequent works were published under the pen name of John Sinjohn, and it was not until The Island Pharisees (1904) that he began publishing under his own name, probably owing to the recent death of his father. His first full-length novel, Jocelyn, was published in an edition of 750 under the name of John Sinjohn - he later refused to have it republished. His first play, The Silver Box (1906),[4] - in which the theft of a prostitute's purse by a rich 'young man of good family' is placed beside the theft of a silver cigarette case from the rich man's father's house by 'a poor devil', with very different repercussions[5] - became a success, and he followed it up with The Man of Property (1906), the first book of a Forsyte trilogy. Although he continued writing both plays and novels, it was as a playwright that he was mainly appreciated at the time. Along with those of other writers of the period, such as George Bernard Shaw, his plays addressed the class system and other social issues, two of the best known being Strife (1909) and The Skin Game (1920).John GalsworthyHe is now far better known for his novels, particularly The Forsyte Saga, his trilogy about the eponymous family and connected lives. These books, as with many of his other works, deal with social class, and upper-middle class lives in particular. Although sympathetic to his characters, he highlights their insular, snobbish, and acquisitive attitudes and their suffocating moral codes. He is viewed as one of the first writers of the Edwardian era who challenged some of the ideals of society depicted in the preceding literature of Victorian England. The depiction of a woman in an unhappy marriage furnishes another recurring theme in his work. The character of Irene in The Forsyte Saga is drawn from Ada Pearson, though her previous marriage was not as miserable as that of the character.Through his writings, Galsworthy campaigned for a variety of causes, including prison reform, women's rights, and animal welfare, and also against censorship. During the First World War he worked in a hospital in France as an orderly, after being passed over for military service, and in 1917 turned down a knighthood, for which he was nominated by Prime Minister David Lloyd George, on the precept that a writer's reward comes simply from writing itself.[6] In 1921 he was elected as the first president of the PEN International literary club and was appointed to the Order of Merit in 1929. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1932 after he had been nominated that year by Henrik Schück, a member of the Swedish Academy.[7] He was too ill to attend the Nobel awards ceremony and died six weeks later.[citation needed]Galsworthy lived for the final seven years of his life at Bury in West Sussex. He died from a brain tumor at his London home, Grove Lodge, Hampstead. In accordance with his will he was cremated at Woking, with his ashes then being scattered over the South Downs from an aeroplane,[8] but there are also memorials to him in Highgate 'New' Cemetery[9] and in the cloisters of New College, Oxford,[10] cut by Eric Gill.[11][12] The popularity of his fiction waned quickly after his death but the hugely successful television adaptation of The Forsyte Saga in 1967 renewed interest in his work.A number of John Galsworthy's letters and papers are held at the University of Birmingham Special Collections.In 2007, Kingston University opened a new building named in recognition of his local birth. Galsworthy Road in Kingston, the location of Kingston Hospital, is also named for him.He womnthe Nobel Prize for Literature in 1932.

        Alexandria: A History and A Guide.

      Alexandria: Whitehead Morris Limited, 1922 - Octavo. Original buff paper boards, titles to spine and front board in black. Spine rolled and sunned, front joint and rear inner hinge skilfully repaired, front board slightly marked, with small bump to top edge, commensurate section of rubbing to rear board, front free endpaper browned, half-title slightly marked. A very good copy. Engraved frontispiece, 16 engraved maps and plans to the text, double-page genealogical table, 2 folding maps, coloured folding map in pocket on rear pastedown. First edition. Presentation copy, inscribed by Forster "AJB, from the author" on the front free endpaper, and with the ownership inscription of the recipient, A. J. Butler, on the front board. This is Oxford historian Alfred Joshua Butler (1850–1936), whose work The Arab Conquest of Egypt (1902) Forster cites as his main source for the period, and describes it as "a monograph of the highest merit, brilliantly written, and practically reconstructing the episode" (p. iii). He also acknowledges Butler's Ancient Coptic Churches (1884) as his source for the passage on the monasteries of Natrun, and reproduces two of his plans at pages 202 and 203. Butler appears to have then used the guide for his own purposes, the section on the Greco-Roman Museum (pp. 107–21) bearing his inked underlinings and marginal summaries of the exhibits described by Forster. Copies of the first edition are rare, as most of the print run was destroyed by fire. Kirkpatrick A8a. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        For Love of the King (copy formerly owned by David Belasco) A Burmese Masque

      For Love of the King A Burmese Masque (theatrical play) by Oscar Wilde (author of The Importance of Being Ernest, The Canterville Ghost, The Picture of Dorian Grey) First Edition - First Printing Limited to 1000 copies (as stated on the copyright page) London: Methuen & Co., 1922. Published posthumously, this play by all accounts was neither published nor performed during Wilde's lifetime but was discovered in 1921 long after the playwright's death in 1900. After its original release, some Oscar Wilde experts believed the play to be a forgery. See below.This copy formerly owned by the theatrical impresario and controversial theater director David Belasco, as indicated by his bookplate on the front pastedown inside the front board in the art nouveau style.Near Fine+ in Very Good++ Dust Jacket (almost Near Fine-). A wonderful copy of a relatively difficult book to find, especially in original dust jacket. The book itself is solid, especially since it's on hand-made paper. Some discoloration to the front board. Dust jacket has nicks tiny chipping to the top and bottom of the spine, but about 99.9% all there. A very nice copy with exceptional provenance."For Love of the King", a posthumous play discovered in 1921. In October 1921, Hutchinson's Magazine published an undiscovered play, For Love of the King, allegedly by Irish-English author Oscar Wilde. The play was subsequently published in book form by Methuen Publishing in 1922. E. V. Lucas, The manuscript was offered to Methuen by Wodehouse Pearse along with a letter from Wilde (written in November 1894) stating that he was sending her the fairy play "for the love of the king" for her "own amusement".[3] In 1925, Christopher Millard, a well-known biographer of Wilde, was approached by Wodehouse Pearse who tried to sell him some letters that she said were written by Wilde. Convinced that the letters as well as the play were forgeries, Millard published a pamphlet stating that Methuen had knowingly published a play that it knew to be a forgery.[5] Methuen sued Millard for defamation and won an award of £200. During the trial, Wodehouse Pearse could not be found to testify (she was later discovered in prison serving a sentence for theft). Apparently, the play is today understood to be by Wilde but controversy still surrounds the letters and the play itself. NOTE: All modern books with dust jackets come with dust jacket covers.ALSO: The pictures are of the actual item for sale. (The pictures are NOT stock photos.)

        Ho-Tai : dzejoli 1921. -1922. (Ho-Tai : Verses 1921 - 1922)

      Vainags, Riga 1922 - Latvian language. Octavo 12 x 15 cm. Weight 30 gr. Wrappers, 27 [4] pp. The book is in perfect condition, without any defects, losses, remarks and stains. Some uncut pages indicate that the book has never been read. Present cycle of poems by Linards Laicens is considered as one of the best books of love lyrics in Latvian literature. It is stand-alone work in author's leftist propaganda literary creation. Verses full of Eastern exotic dedicated to Anna Lacis, Latvian actress, who lived with poet before her arresting for left-wing underground organizations participance. In Ho-Tai author successfully applied forms borrowed from Chinese poetry. Here he began experiments with free verse. Modernist Chinese-style graphical cover design created by leading Latvian artist Niklavs Strunke. Book was re-edited several times (1968, 1983). Present copy is rare first edition in excellent condition. Linards Laicens (1883-1938) was Latvian leading leftist avant-garde writer and poet. He took part in the revolution of 1905 and supported the idea of independence, but in 1920 he became a communist, moving to the Soviet Union in 1932. Six years later he fell victim to the purge of 1938 and was imprisoned and shot. In literary works Laicens defends the idea of "new" art that will sweep away the old one - an idea that was crucial not only for futurists and other modernists poets but also for the propagandists of proletarian literature in the Soviet Union.

        Ogni sviatogo Dominika: p'esa [The Fires of St. Dominic]

      Knigoizdatel'stvo "Slovo", Berlin 1922 - Octavo (19.5 × 14.5 cm). Original pictorial wrappers by Aleksandr Arnshtam; 58, [2] pp. About very good; occasional light soil to corners; rear wrapper somewhat creased. First edition of Russian modernist and dystopian writer Evgenii Zamyatin's play, which is set in sixteenth-century Spain during the Inquisition. Zamyatin returned to Russia shortly before the October Revolution after working abroad for many years, and he wrote numerous short stories during the following years, as well as teaching courses on Russian literature. By the early 1920s he was one of the most well-known but also controversial writers. The present work, Zamyatin's only play, was recognized by contemporaries as an allegory of the Soviet Cheka, or secret police. A short preface to the work notes that "Those who were convinced of their infallibility decided to drive all who disobeyed into their paradise by means of weapons and bonfires." Completed in 1920, the work was first published in 1922 by the Berlin émigré publishing house "Slovo" ("The Word"). A number of reviews took note of its anti-Soviet pathos and helped set off the long-running campaign against Zamyatin, who only left the Soviet Union in 1931, after personally petitioning Stalin for permission. With attractive drawn wrappers by Alexander Arnstam, a noted artist and graphic designer who had left Russia for Berlin in 1921. Savine 04597. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        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]

        Comus.

      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.
