        Beautiful and Damned, The

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1922 - True First Printing (without the publisher's seal on the copyright page or the concluding advertisements on pp. 451-452 of later printings) of the author's second novel. 8vo; [10], 449, [1]pp. Publisher's dark blue-green linen-like cloth, the spine lettered gilt, the upper cover blind-stamped with the title and author, the fore-edge untrimmed. A just about Fine copy, (lacking the dust jacket), save for offsetting to the end papers and faintly discernible pencil erasures to the front fly leaf. Bruccoli A8.1.a The Beautiful and Damned, in cut and edited form, first appeared in seven installments in Metropolitan magazine, from September 1921 to March 1922. The book, according to Bruccoli, came out on 4 March 1922, in a first impression of 20,600 copies. It went through two more printings that year, for a total of 50,000 copies. After the spectacular success of Fitzgerald's first novel, This Side of Paradise (1920), he struck out in a new direction, presenting in The Beautiful and Damned a more sparing, focused narrative, relying largely on an omniscient narrator. "Its style," according to the Literary Encyclopedia, "moves towards that integration of romantic and modernist elements which will come to such dazzling fruition in his next novel, The Great Gatsby." Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

The painter Rachel Szalit-Marcus created these astounding lithographs as to illustrate Sholem Aleichem's literary work. Szallit-Marcus (1894-1942) grew up in Lodz and was sent by her parents to Munich in 1911 to study at the Art Academy. She moved to Berlin in 1916 and became a member of the November group, a circle of young avantgarde artists. When Hitler came to power in 1933, Szalit-Marcus emigrated to France, but was imprisoned and murdered in concentration camp in 1942. She painted still-lifes, portraits and illustrated books by authors like Mendele Moikher Sforim, Heinrich Heine and Martin Buber. Includes an essay written by the Yiddish literary critic Israel Isidor Elyashev (Baal-Machshoves).

After finishing High school in Switzerland, he studied medicine in Berlin and Heidelberg. Baal-Makhshoves practiced in Latvian cities, like Riga and Vilna, but also in the Polish city Warsaw. He began to write in Russian and German in 1896 and published his first piece in Yiddish in 1901. Besides his main interest in belles lettres, he translated German authors like Theodor Herzl, Yiddish writers like David Bergelson and Russian novelists like Ivan Turgenyew.

        Scalp Dance of the Minatarres

      Schmidt and Guenther, [Leipzig 1922 - From the scarce Leipzig edition printed from the original copper-plates. Limited in number, the prints from the Leipzig edition are more scarce than, and compare favorably to, the first edition. (David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 85, p.18) An important record of this energetic victory dance, executed by Bodmer during the winter of 1833-1834 when the travelers stayed at Fort Clark on the banks of the upper reaches of Missouri River. The Hidatsa's came to the fort twice to perform their scalp dance, once in February 1834 after a retaliatory raid against the Assiniboins, and again in April after a surprise attack on a Sioux camp. The figure shown center right is Máhchsi-Níhka (`Young War Eagle'), a deaf-mute who had played a prominent part in the raid against the Assiniboins. To the far left is Síh-Sä (`Red Feather'), a Mandan man who had been raised by the factor of Fort Clark, although he still has relatives in the village. The women play a principal role in the dance and have donned military attire, painted their faces like warriors, carried weapons and displayed scalp trophies. Musical accompaniment is provided by the men with the drums and rattles. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833. They proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux tribe, learning of and recording their little known ceremonial dances and powerful pride and dignity. Transferring from the Yellow Stone to another steamer, the Assiniboin, they continued to Fort Clark, visiting there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow tribes, then the Assiniboins at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana, establishing a cautious friendship with the fearsome Blackfeet. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and especially the people, who were often both intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for their capturing of individual personalities, as well as forming a primary account of what were to become virtually lost cultures. David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint /Spring 1985, p.18. Cf.Graff 4648; cf. Howes M443a; cf. Pilling 2521; cf. Sabin 47014; cf. Wagner-Camp 76:1. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Ch. Vogel after Bodmer. Small marginal tears not affecting plate area. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Faust.

      (Darmstadt Ernst Ludwig Presse 1922-23) - Two large octavo volumes. 214, (iv); 323, (ii)pp. From an edition of 1,000 copies, this is one of 100 large paper copies.

Kleukens was an artistic director of the Ernst Ludwig Presse from 1907 until 1937. According to Roderick Cave, the style of the Press was relatively severe and essentially served as a vehicle for the use of typefaces designed by Christian and his brother Friedrich Wilhelm, who worked together at the Press until 1914, when Friedrich left to found the Kleukens Presse. Bound by Ernst Rehbein at the Kleukens Binderei in full vellum, with gilt titling and rules. An elegant set that shows light soiling to front panel of volume two. Housed in cream cloth slipcase.
