Second Edition. Derra de Moroda 2271. Hilar p. 784. Often referred to as the "Toulouse-Lautrec of Germany," Schnackenberg masterfully captured the exotic world of expressionist pre- and post-World War II Munich. The present highly attractive collection includes his finest costume, poster and theatre designs rendered in vibrant colour, along with fine photographic illustrations of some of the most noted dancers of the time. "When we remember this [dance renaissance] movement [in Germany] we think of the Munich art feasts and performances in theaters and concert halls, which came out of this art-loving city thanks to the collaboration of creative artists. Among those who actively and knowingly took part in this movement, the painter Schnackenberg attracted attention with his creations. His planes, figures and drawings make it clear that in dance and pantomime, we can reclaim the right to rejoice in the beauty of the body, the striking pose and the animated movement. Glowing colors delight the eye, joy of life shines in the lightness, and the bright colors conveny to us that the world need not remain grey and colorless if we have the courage to be guided by our yearnings." Gleichen-Russworm: Schnackenberg: Ballet und Pantomime (foreword), 1920. Bie was the author of a number of noted works in the fields of both music and dance.

      London,: The Egoist Press, 1922.. London,: The Egoist Press, 1922.. Octavo (215 ? 168 mm); uniquely bound in contemporary Italian half-vellum, green morocco label to spine with gilt titles, and white paper to sides with a floral pattern in red and blue; light rubbing to spine label and extremities, browning and a small burn mark to upper board, leaves slightly cockled, with a small stain to early leaves; overall in very good condition. An exceptionally interesting copy of Ulysses, given by Joyce to an admired young Italian writer and translator, Lauro De Bosis, perhaps anticipating a translation, and in an extraordinary way prefiguring De Bosis's Icarus/Daedalus fascination and ultimate death in an Icarian flight ten years later.This is an example of the first UK edition (printed in France for distribution in London), the second printing overall, limited to 2000 numbered copies for publication in the UK of which 500 were reportedly destroyed on arrival by British Customs. This copy is stamped "Press Copy" on the half-title, and "Unnumbered Press Copy" on the limitation leaf - as with the February edition, all the press copies, by Joyce's own account (letter to Weaver, 17 November 1922), were stamped by Joyce himself, wielding the two rubber stamps "with great delight".This copy, given to him by Joyce, was owned by Lauro De Bosis, is in an Italian binding that must have been arranged by him, and has his bookplate. Lauro De Bosis was a young Italian poet, only 20 at the time of publication. In his short life he would become acquainted, among many other literary figures, with Ezra Pound, would teach a summer course in Literature and Philosophy at Harvard, and complete Italian translations of Aeschylus and Sophocles as well as Frazer's Golden Bough.Two letters from Joyce give evidence of his relationship with De Bosis. One, sent to Harriet Shaw Weaver on 19 July 1923 from England, makes a glowing assessment of his character: "Mr De Bosis can see me any time he likes. He himself is so nicelooking and so very well washed and dressed and so agreeable and enthusiastic that I shall be very pleased to see him and listen to any proposal he may make as to the translation into any language of anything ever written by anybody." The other, to Italo Svevo on 20 February 1924 from Paris, asks Svevo to send De Bosis a copy of Ulysses. Since De Bosis was best known as a translator, and given the implication in Joyce's first letter that De Bosis had asked permission to translate Joyce's works, the present copy, sent to him on Joyce's instruction, may be construed as an invitation to translate Ulysses into Italian.Though there is no record of this translation being attempted, the young De Bosis, after receiving this book, may be said to have been translated into a Joycean phenomenon. He became obsessed with the figure of Icarus (and, by extension, Joyce's Icarian character Stephen Dedalus). In 1928, De Bosis entered the literary competition of the Olympic Games with a classical drama entitled "Icaro", for which he won the silver medal - it was a work of Romantic mytho-politics in which the tyrant Minos bore obvious parallels to Mussolini, and the hero Icarus to De Bosis himself.Then, on 3 October 1931, after enduring a period of political exile for his support of Victor Emmanuel III (De Bosis was posing as a concierge in a Rome hotel named after the king), Lauro De Bosis, not a trained flyer, took to the skies over Rome in a plane that he had bought for the purpose (christened "Pegasus"), and hurled hundreds of thousands of antifascist leaflets down upon the city. Through the agency of Mussolini's air force, De Bosis completed his first and final flight in true Icarian style, plunging in flames into the Tyrrhenian sea.On the night before this fatal flight, however, De Bosis had written a letter, a sort of politically and poetically defiant suicide note, addressing himself simultaneously to his family, to the king, to Mussolini, to people of Rome, and to posterity, entitled L'Histoire de ma Mort. On the way to the aviation field in the morning, he had posted this letter to a journalist friend in Belgium with the instruction that it be published in all the newspapers of Europe still free from fascist censorship, which (as well as in the New York Times) it was, bringing to the name of Lauro De Bosis a brief flare of world-wide fame for his daring act.A superb association copy of Ulysses, in a unique binding, given by Joyce to someone who might indeed be the most Stephano-Daedalian of his acquaintances, a man simultaneously motivated by myth and politics, even to the extent of self-destruction. We have included copies of De Bosis's aforementioned works (the first English editions, these two with the calling cards of his American lover and posthumous translator, Ruth Draper), so that they may tell their own story.De Bosis's other works were: the anthology "The Golden Book of Italian Poetry" (OUP, 1932), the Italian versions of his Icaro (1930 Milan), and his translations of Prometheus Unbound (1930 Milan), Thornton Wilder's The Bridge of San Luis Rey, (Milan 1929), Sophocles's Antigone (Rome, 1927) and Oedipus Rex (Rome 1924), Fraser's The Golden Bough (Rome 1925). Thornton Wilder dedicated his novel Ides of March (1948) to his memory, suggesting a parallel between De Bosis and Catullus.

        The Worst Journey in the World. Antarctic 1910-1913.

      Constable & Co.,, London: 1922 - Rare first edition of this Antarctic classic, which includes the 10 panoramic collotype plates that do not appear in later editions. It is a first-person account of Scott's last Antarctic Expedition from 1910-13. Hearing of Scott's proposed 2nd expedition, Cherry-Garrard volunteered his services to Dr. Wilson, whom he had met previously. "In an expedition every member of which was a specialist, he was accepted by Scott on Wilson's recommendation alone & duly enlisted as 'assistant zoologist". Yet from the outset, despite his youth and inexperience, he won the affectionate regard of his more seasoned comrades, and before the close of the expedition had more sledge-journeys to his credit than any other surviving member. Cherry-Garrard was warmly commended by Scott for his efficiency and unselfishness as a sledger and tent-mate. In the comparative comfort of life at base, he edited the South Polar Times. Wilson chose Bowers and Cherry-Garrard -- 'the pick of the sledging element' (Scott) -- as his companions for a Winter Journey in 1911 to the rookery of the Emperor Penguin at Cape Crozier, an exploit which is still without parallel in the annals of polar exploration. On their return 5 weeks later, Scott described their journey as 'the hardest that has ever been made' -- a phrase which later suggested to Cherry-Garrard the title of his narrative. The book is widely regarded as the most readable of all the Antarctic literature - it has been suggested that the manuscript was heavily edited by George Bernard Shaw, who was a close family friend of the Cherry-Garrards. 2 vols., large 8vo, lxiv, 300pp, (4) appendix, 30 ills & 4 maps (&) viii, 301-585pp, 28 ills & 1 map. A pleasant period green half morocco sunned evenly to brown, raised bands and gilt titles, green pebbled cloth, marbled end papers, front pastedowns with bookplate of Claud Lambton, top edges gilt, fore-edges and lower edges uncut.

        The Stock Market Barometer

      New York: : Harper Brothers Publishers,, 1922.. New York: Harper Brothers Publishers, 1922. First edition. Octavo, original red cloth. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with the lightest of wear. An exceptional copy, scarce in this condition. In The Stock Market Barometer, William Hamilton&#39;s clear and in-depth analysis explores the Dow Theory&#39;s underlying principles, its explanation of averages and its remarkable affinity for predictable cycles of panic and prosperity. More than just a blueprint of the Theory, however, Hamilton&#39;s cogent discussion provides a concise examination of the stock market and its history since 1897, as well as thorough descriptions of the notable trends he observed during a distinguished career. His undisputed gifts of insight and interpretation bring focus and flavor to his candid views on a variety of vital topics, including market manipulation, speculation, and regulation. "I urge you to read this book, and read it again and again. Robert Rhea, the famous Dow Theorist of the 1930s, stated that he read and reread The Stock Market Barometer at least once a year. Frankly, I can think of no better advice" (Richard Russell).

      New York: Funk & Wagnalls Company, 1922. First edition of this seminal work in etiquette and personal relations. Octavo, original blue cloth with titles to the spine and front panel in gilt. In near fine condition with some light rubbing to the spine extremities. A very sharp copy of this rare first edition.Etiquette is a seminal work in personal relations that ranges from topics on how to conduct oneself when meeting strangers to how one should behave at formal dinners and engagements. It has pioneered many social networking concepts, granting Post a name synonymous with proper etiquette and manners that is referenced in etiquette books even today. Joan Didion, contemporary author of The Year of Magical Thinking, considered Post's entry on funerals a source of great consolation after the passing of her husband (Campbell, 2005). The recent publication of Post's first full-length biography suggests that her legacy is pertinent more now than ever (Claridge, 2008).

      Paris: Shakespeare & Company, 1922. First edition. One of 750 numbered copies on handmade paper from a total edition of 1000 copies. Thick quarto, original blue and white wrappers. A near fine copy, internally fresh and largely unopened, the wrappers not significantly soiled or faded, and completely unrestored. In a custom quarter morocco box. This is copy #992, and has laid in the front panel of the original prospectus with the tipped-on reproduction of the 1918 photo of Joyce by C. Ruf. The front panel of the prospectus has been amended, as often, to indicate the book "is now ready," and the original buyer must have jumped at the opportunity, as the order panel of the prospectus has been neatly cut away. Sisley Huddleston's 5 March 1922 review from The Observer is also laid in (though both items are in prophylactic sleeves that have prevented any offsetting). Also laid into the slipcase is some correspondence relating to the sale of this copy in 1972 by Duschnes in New York City. A very sharp copy with nice provenance.Ulysses was published in Paris by Shakespeare & Company, 1922. It was a struggle for the author to find a publisher, a comic irony considering that Ulysses is "[u]niversally hailed as the most influential work of modern times" (Grolier Joyce 69). Ulysses was an immediate success. The first printing sold out, and "within a year Joyce had become a well-known literary figure. Ulysses was explosive in its impact on the literary world of 1922" (de Grazia, 27). Even so, the book faced difficulties in global reception. It was banned in the U.K. and was prosecuted for the obscenity in the Nausicaa episode (Ellmann, 1982). Joyce's inspiration for the novel began as a young boy reading Charles Lamb's Adventures of Ulysses and writing an essay entitled "My Favourite Hero" after being impressed by the wholeness of the character (Goreman, 1939). The idea for the novel grew from a story in Dubliners in 1906, which Joyce expanded into a short book in 1907, before reconceptualizing it as the heady novel in 1914 (Ellmann, 1982). The book can initially seem unsctructured and chaotic, and Joyce admitted that he "put in so many enigmas and puzzles that it will keep the professors busy for centuries arguing over what I meant" (The Observer, 2000). The French translator Stuart Gilbert published a defense of Ulysses shortly after its publication in which he supported the novel's use of obscenity and explained its internal structure and links to the Odyssey against accusations of ambiguity. Every episode, Gilbert explained, is connected to the Odyssey by theme, technique, and correspondence between characters. Another instance of Ulysses' literary contribution is his use of stream-of-consciousness, a technique employing carefully structured prose, both humorous and charactering, and involving puns and parodies. Joyce was a precursor to the use of stream of consciousness in the later decades. Similar narrative techniques were used by his contemporaries Virginia Wolfe, William Faulkner, and Italo Svevo. Their style can be better characterized as an "interior monologue, rather than stream of consciousness, is the appropriate term for the style in which [subjective experience] is recorded, both in The Waves and in Woolf's writing generally" (Stevenson, 1992).

        Funeral Scaffold of a Sioux Chief near Fort Pierre [Tab. 11]

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922]. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Hürlimann after Bodmer. 13 3/4 x 16 3/4 inches. 18 5/8 x 24 3/16 inches. 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 image of powerful spirituality: the living continue their lives whilst acknowledging both the mortality of their relatives and by extension themselves. This fine plate is from a sketch by Bodmer made on 28 April 1834 during the journey back down the Missouri River. The scene is near Fort Pierre; the scaffold in the right foreground holds the remains of a warrior who had apparently been brought home from a great distance. Scaffold burial, on an erected platform or in the limbs of a tree, was a wide spread practice amongst the plains peoples in general and the Sioux in particular, for whom the ritual held deep spiritual significance. Karl Bodmer&#39;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&#39;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.
