        THE MEMOIRS

      The Casanova Society, London 1922 - 254 x 203 mm (10 x 8"). 12 volumes bound in six. Translated by Arthur Machen. ONE OF 1,000 COPIES. Attractive later burgundy half morocco over red linen boards by Bayntun (stamp-signed on front flyleaf in each volume), raised bands flanked by gilt rules, spine panels with gilt chandelier-like centerpiece, each spine with two olive brown morocco labels, top edges gilt. With 12 frontispieces of various kinds (a bust of Casanova, a large fold-out map of Venice, a fold-out facsimile of two documents in Casanova's hand, an engraving showing a Casanova escape, two portraits of Casanova, a title page of a minor work by Casanova, a portrait of Manon Baletti, engravings of a London cityscape and of Vaux Hall, Casanova's death record, and his grave). Corners a bit worn, joints of the early volumes a little rubbed (two joints cracked and boards consequently with a little wobble), one volume with small loss of leather at bottom of spine, but still quite an attractive set, the bindings entirely sound and without any serious wear, and the wide-margined text in virtually unused condition. Based on the rare unabridged London edition of 1894, this is an attractively bound copy of a limited edition of what Franco Fido (in the "Cambridge History of Italian Literature") calls "one of the most entertaining and exciting tales of the century." Fido says that sometime during the last eight years of his life, the Italian-born Casanova (1725-98) "composed his 'Histoire de ma Vie,' above all in order to relive in writing the vivid sensations and intense pleasures of his vagabond, libertine life and thus compensate for his gloomy and solitary existence as librarian in a remote castle in Bohemia." Written in fluent French, the account describes with unabashed frankness Casanova's rogueries and amours across an 18th century Europe that comes alive as the narrative backdrop. A writer of romantic and macabre tales, our translator Arthur Machen (1863-1947) provides a preface here in which he calls Casanova not only a "woman hunter," but also an "occult swindler" who victimizes senators, noble ladies, and Dutch financiers with a phony cabala. Also in this special edition are two additional chapters discovered by Arthur Symons, an index, and a map indicating the hero's itineraries. Our quarto-size volumes are distinguished by an extremely pleasing italic typeface and are handsomely printed in general. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Paradise of Children, The"

      [n.p.]: , 1922. - A Superb Original Arthur Rackham Watercolor Drawingfor Nathaniel Hawthorne’s "A Wonder Book" RACKHAM, Arthur (1867-1939). "The Paradise of Children." London: 1922. Original pen-and-ink and watercolor drawing for the tinted line drawing illustrating "The Paradise of Children" ("Pandora’s Box") in Nathaniel Hawthorne’s A Wonder Book (London: [n.d., 1922]). Signed and dated at lower right. Image size: 15 x 11 inches (381 x 279 mm.). Matted, framed, and glazed."Long, long ago, when this old world was in its tender infancy, there was a child, who never had either a father or a mother; and, that he might not be lonely, another child, fatherless and motherless like himself, was sent from a far country, to live with him, and be his playfellow and helpmate. Her name was Pandora.The first thing that Pandora saw, when she entered the cottage where Epimetheus dwelt, was a great box. And almost the first question which she put to him, after crossing the threshold, was this,—‘Epimetheus, what have you in that box?’ ‘My dear little Pandora,’ answered Epimetheus, ‘That is a secret, and you must be kind enough not to ask any questions about it. The box was left here to be kept safely, and I do not myself know what it contains.’‘But who gave it to you?’ asked Pandora. ‘And where did it come from?’‘That is a secret too,’ replied Epimetheus.‘How provoking!’ exclaimed Pandora, pouting her lip. ‘I wish the great ugly box were out of the way!’‘Oh come, don’t think of it anymore" cried Epimetheus. "Let us run out of doors, and have some nice play with the other children.’It is thousands of years since Epimetheus and Pandora were alive; and the world, nowadays, is a very different sort of thing from what it was in their time. Then, everybody was a child. There needed no fathers and mothers to take care of the children; because there was no danger, nor trouble of any kind, and no clothes to be mended, and there was always plenty to eat and drink. Whenever a child wanted his dinner, he found it growing on a tree; and, if he looked at the tree in the morning, he could see the expanding blossom of that night’s supper; or, at eventide, he saw the tender bud of tomorrow’s breakfast. It was a very pleasant life indeed. No labor to be done, no tasks to be studied; nothing but sports and dances, and sweet voices of children talking, or caroling like birds, or gushing out in merry laughter, throughout the livelong day."This charming watercolor drawing depicts life as it was before Pandora opened the "great ugly box"— a wonderfully gentle pastoral scene, with a group of three naked children dancing merrily, without a care in the world, with "the expanding blossoms of that night’s supper" hanging heavily on the tree above their heads and "the tender bud of tomorrow’s breakfast" growing on the plants in the foreground."The moment one opens Hawthorne’s Wonder Book one becomes aware of the rounding and softening of form in Rackham’s work. The modern Pandora of Hawthorne opens her box for the world in 1921, and she is a very living young girl, with breasts just beginning to swell, indicating that Rackham was aware of the undertones of this story which is being retold with every lifetime. In ‘The Paradise of Children’ from the same text the children are drawn in line, but the washes of colour give them a rotundity of form and a very human life. The point which Rackham is making, surely, is that these are real children, a real Pandora, and not some dream from fairy land" (Fred Gettings, Arthur Rackham, p. 141).

        La Poblacion del Valle de Teotihuacan El Medio en que se ha desarrollado. Su evolucion Etnica y Social Iniciativas para Procurar su Mejoramiento

      Direcciòn de Talleres Gráficos Dependiente de la Secretaria de Educacion Pública Mèxico, Mexico City 1922 - 3 parts in 2 volumes: Volume 1, part 1: cii+326+xvi with tables (some folding), maps (some folding and in color), plates (many folding and in color), photographs, illustrations and figures. Volume 1, part 2: [363]-778+xii with tables (some folding), maps (some folding and in color), plates (many folding and in color), photographs, illustrations and figures. Volume 2: 670+xxx with tables, maps (some folding), plates, photographs, illustrations and figures. Quarto (11" x 7 1/2') round in full leather with raised spine bands, black and white labels in gilt lettering. Two title pages with one in red and black. First edition. This report embodies the results of some five years of preparation survey, investigation, and excavation on the part of the combined force of the Mexican Department of Anthropology, with the assistance of a corps of specialists from other governmental scientific departments, including biologists, geologists, meteorologists and even artists and musicians. The first volume is that of the greatest interest to archaeologists, consisting of three parts: Introduction, Synthesis, Conclusion and Remarks; Physico-Biological Survey; and the Pre-Hispanic Inhabitants. The second volume contains the Colonial Inhabitants and interest to anthropologists, while the third volume contains The Colonial Inhabitants and The Inhabitants During the Nineteenth Century, while the third volume refers to The Contemporaneous Inhabitants and contains considerable valuable material on somatology, ethnology, folklore and linguistics. In the Synthesis is to be found the detailed report, profusely illustrated, on the excavation of the beautiful Temple of Quetzalcoatl which was discovered too late for this report to be included in the chapter on the Archaeology of Teotihuacán. The greater part of volume one, 312 pages and 130 plates, is devoted to the Pre-Hispanic Population, consisting of eight chapters on Physical Type, Intellectual Manifestations and Archaeology. Of consummate interest to Americanists are the chapters on archaeology, giving as they do the full details, amply illustrated by photographs, maps, plans, drawings and reconstructions, of the recent excavations at Teotihuacán carried out by the department, combined and digested with the results of earlier investigations. Volume two, containing parts 3 on The Colonial Population, and 4 on the Population in the Nineteenth Century treats of economic, social and religious life, colonial architecture, history and similar topics. Volume three, the fifth part, on The Contemporary Population, is also primarily of interest to sociologists, though containing much of interest for students of Mexican archaeology and linguistics. The dominant note of the entire work is completeness and comprehensiveness. Every possible phase of the survey is treated with thoroughness. The volumes are tributes to the admirable ability of the Mexican printer, engraver, artist and binder, being of a quality not to be excelled. (American Anthropologist volume 26, pages 416-421) Condition: Slight stain to spine of volume 2. Leather at edges lightly rubbed else a better than very good set.

        Q.B.L. or The Bride's Reception: Being A Short Cabalistic Treatise On The Nature And Use Of The Tree Of Life.

      Printed for the Author, Chicago 1922 - First edition of Achad's most important book. Ex-Libris Aleister Crowley. Extraordinary Presentation Copy Inscribed By Frater Achad: "To my Beloved Father / 666 / in the hope that this, my / first book, may meet with / his approval / 777". 8vo., 106 pp + 43pp. + 4 colour plates (including frontispiece) + 1 folded black & white diagram. Limited Edition: #2 of 250 signed copies. THE MOST IMPORTANT POSSIBLE ASSOCIATION COPY. Black paper-covered boards, linen spine, paper title label, top edge gilt. Label slightly chipped, some wear to corners and edges of boards. Light damping along top margin of first few leaves and a couple of inconsequential nicks. Interesting bookplate of Phyllis Duveen. A very good & important copy. Aleister Crowley ("666") considered himself to be the "Spiritual Father" to Frater Achad (Charles Stansfeld Jones, "777"), as he relates on page 801 of the CONFESSIONS: "What I had really done . was to beget a Magical Son. So, precisely nine months afterwards . Frater O.I.V., entirely without my k now ledge, became a Babe of the Abyss. . The Book of the Law speaks of this 'Child' as 'One,' as if with absolute vagueness. But the motto which Frater O.I.V. had taken on becoming a neophyte was 'Achad,' which is the Hebrew word for 'One.' It is further predicted that this 'Child' shall discover the Key of the interpretation of the Book itself, and this I had been unable to do." In this light, Achad refers to Aleister Crowley as his "Beloved Father" in the INSCRIBED DEDICATION. This is copy # 2 of 250; we presume that copy #1 was retained by the Author. The bookplate of Phyllis Duveen, the wife of Denis I. Duveen, a noted collector of Alchemical books & Esoterica] was possibly executed by AUBREY BEARDSLEY (although unsigned). The Duveen Collection is noted for its depth and balance. The catalogue of Duveen's library "Bibliotheca Alchemica et Chemica: An Annotated Catalogue of Printed Books on Alchemy, Chemistry, and Cognate Subjects in the Library of Denis I. Duveen," printed in London, 1949 remains a touchstone for scholars and collectors of European Chemistry before 1900. There are some penciled annotations in the margins of the text. These include the following: Page 2 has the phrase "get Essay Berashith" (to be found in the Collected Works of Aleister Crowley). Page 49 has the word "Tau" noted across from a discussion of THE UNIVERSE. Page 64 has the phrase "Book 777" across from a section on THE TREE OF LIFE. Page 97 has the phrase "Liber Legis" in the margin where the author refers to THE INITIATION OF 1917. BY THE MASTERS OF WISDOM FROM OTHER PLANES OF BEING. We cannot confirm that this penciling is in the hand of Crowley, nor of the previous owner Duveen but all things are possible. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH AND OTHER STORIES.

      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.

        THE WASTE LAND

      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.

        THE WASTE LAND

      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.

        ULYSSES

      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.
