      Shakespeare and Company, Paris 1922 - The true First Printing of this modern classic. Copy #482 of 750 numbered copies printed on handmade paper of a total edition of only 1000. Bound without the original blue paper covers in half brown morocco with matching corners, spine lettered in gilt, with a matching half morocco slipcase. A very nice copy priced very attractively because the half title and title pages are in expert facsimile. There is also a facsimile corner repair to one page. The initial and rear blanks as well as the colophon leaf at the end are lacking; the limitation leaf at the beginning is original. In order to bring the book into an English-speaking country before 1934, a number of people evidently tore off the wraps and title pages to smuggle it in through customs. If you can live with this, you will have on your shelf perhaps the most notable work of fiction written in the twentieth century at a price you are not likely to encounter elsewhere. Despite the defects, Very Good in a handsome slipcase. Scarce [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        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.

In the original slightly oversized, near fine glazed paper glassine dust jacket. &#147;Cecily Parsley&#146;s Nursery Rhymes is a sequel to Appley Dapply&#146;s Nursery Rhymes, but the rhymes and pictures used for this book have even earlier associations than those for Appley Dapply&#133;Following the success of Appley Dapply&#146;s Nursery Rhymes in 1917, Warnes asked for a sequel. &#145;People worry me for just one or two more books,&#146; Beatrix Potter wrote to a friend, &#145;but my eyes are getting weak and I am tired of doing them&#133;and since the war there is so much to do&#133;I have a big farm as well as my house-keeping; so I seldom sit down except to meals and necessary letters.&#146; In her portfolios were the two paintings of 1893 illustrating the verse about &#145;Guinea-pigs&#146; Garden; the Cecily Parsley booklet of 1897; and two versions of her &#145;Nanny Netticoat&#146; rhyme. These, and some of her other early drawings, were recopied and used for the book&#148; (Linder, pp. 251-252).Linder, p. 430. Quinby 26. V & A 1534.

        Ulysses (One of 750 copies Signed & Dated)

      Shakespeare and Company, Paris 1922 - Specially bound in full leather in 2 volumes. This is number 389 of a the special 750 copies printed on handmade, laid paper. Signed and dated in ink by James Joyce: "James Joyce 9. ix. 1924" on the front endpaper following the front blue wrapper. Volume I contains 370 pages. Volume II begins on page 371 and and ends on p. 732 with the "Trieste-Zurich-Paris, 1914-1921" dateline. The next page is printed in capital letters: "Printed for Sylvia Beach by Maurice Darantiere at Dijon, France." The rear wrapper is not present at the end of volume two. Both volumes have been specially bound in full leather with 4 gilt rectangular rules and a delicate inner rectangle of hand-tooled chain patterns culminating in larger floral designs at the inside corners of the front and rear boards. Both front boards bear the name of "JOAN" in vertical gilt capital letters. The spine of volume I is missing 6" of the 9.5" of the spine length, but the top portion with "I" is present. The front blue wrapper printed in White with "Ulysses" by James Joyce is clean and crisp, as is the text throughout volumes one and two. The top edges are gilded. And there are predominantly orange and grey marbled endpapers. There is hand-tooled dentelle gilding along the front and rear inside edges of the boards as well. Both volumes have some pencil scrawlings on the front endpapers, but nothing affecting the text. Despite the two-volume format and the missing rear wrapper, modern first edition authority Allen Ahearn opined that this signed and dated copy in Joyce's hand of one of the 750 specially printed first editions is perhaps as scarce as one of the 100 signed copies, given that none of the 750 copies was issued with Joyce's signature. This copy was signed and dated two years after publication in 1924. This edition is limited to 1000 copies: 100 copies (signed) on Dutch handmade paper numbered from 1 to 100; 150 copies on vergé d'Arches numbered from 101 to 250; 750 copies on handmade paper numbered from 251 to 1000. This is copy No. 389. "The publisher asks the reader&#146;s indulgence for typographical errors unavoidable in the exceptional circumstances. S.B." In a review in The Dial, T.S. Eliot said of Ulysses: "I hold this book to be the most important expression which the present age has found; it is a book to which we are all indebted, and from which none of us can escape." He went on to claim that Joyce was not at fault if people after him did not understand it: "The next generation is responsible for its own soul; a man of genius is responsible to his peers, not to a studio full of uneducated and undisciplined coxcombs." The book has its critics; Virginia Woolf stated that "Ulysses was a memorable catastrophe&#151;immense in daring, terrific in disaster." Ulysses has been called "the most prominent landmark in modernist literature", a work where life's complexities are depicted with "unprecedented, and unequalled, linguistic and stylistic virtuosity." That style has been stated to be the finest example of the use of stream-of-consciousness in modern fiction, with the author going deeper and farther than any other novelist in handling interior monologue. This technique has been praised for its faithful representation of the flow of thought, feeling, mental reflection, and shifts of mood.
