        Jacob's Room

      Richmond: Published by Leonard & Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press, 1922. First edition, 1,200 copies printed. 290, 14 [ad] pp. 8vo. Original yellow cloth, cream printed paper label on spine. Pages clean and fresh, some soiling to cloth, very good plus. Without the scarce dust-jacket.Housed in a custom morocco-backed box. First edition, 1,200 copies printed. 290, 14 [ad] pp. 8vo. First edition of Woolf's breakthrough third novel, about the life of Jacob Flanders and his death in the First World War. The work was "recognized, in its stunningly mischievous ellipses and its often absent protagonist, as a new development in the art of fiction; it was hailed by friends such as T.S. Eliot ('you have freed yourself from any compromise between the traditional novel and your original gift') and attacked by, for example, John Middleton Murry for its lack of plot ... From this time onwards Woolf was regarded as one of the principal exponents of modernism" (Oxford Companion to English Literature). Kirkpatrick A6a

        The Glimpses of the Moon.

      New York: D. Appleton & Company, 1922. First edition of Wharton's sweeping epic. Octavo, original blue cloth. Contemporary name to the front pastedwon, near fine in a near dust jacket with light wear and closed tears to the extremities. Uncommon in this condition. Set in the 1920s, The Glimpses of the Moon details the romantic misadventures of Nick Lansing and Susy Branch, a couple with the right connections but not much in the way of funds. They devise a shrewd bargain: they'll marry and spend a year or so sponging off their wealthy friends, honeymooning in their mansions and villas. As Susy explains, "We should really, in a way, help more than hamper each other. We both know the ropes so well; what one of us didn't see the other might -- in the way of opportunities, I mean." The other part of the plan states that if either one of them meets someone who can advance them socially, they're each free to dissolve the marriage. It was made into a silent film of the same name in 1923, but this is now lost.

        Peter Whiffle His Life And Works

      New York: Alfred A Knopf(1922). 1st edition/1st printing in 1st printing DJ of author's first novel. SIGNED by the author on the front end page: 'Sincerely, Carl Van Vechten.' The Near Fine book is bound in a brown and tan decorative paper over boards binding, with a light tan cloth spine with a paper title label. It is straight, clean and tightly bound with no handwriting or soiling. There are some small, faint tanning spots to the spine cloth. The paper-covered boards have a bit of edgewear to the corners, and the publisher stained black upper page edges has a small scratch and slight fading next to the spine. The price intact original DJ is in Very Good condition. The text on the DJ is intact - surprising since there's a 'lot' of text (front, back and a publisher mailing list form on the back flap). There are narrow edge chips at fold ends ranging in size from 1/4" to 3/4" (the one at the upper back spine fold), a touch of edgewear, and a partially open narrow tear just inside the back flap fold. Where there is no missing material the tears have been stablized by clear tape on the reverse side at some time in the past. There is also mild age toning around the edges of the front/back panels ('much' less toning than it looks like in my scans), plus a couple of small thumb smudges - one each front/back - and a small amount of surface rubbing at the spine ends. The DJ is now protected by removable clear mylar. Unusual to find the 1st printing of this early title author-signed, with or without the 1st printing DJ. ; 7-1/4" x 5-3/8"; 247 pages; Signed by Author, 10, 20, NF/VG

        Beggar's Opera, The

      London: Daniel O'Connor, 1922. "Whore and Rogue They Call Husband And Wife:All Professions Be-Rogue One Another"In A Fine Art Deco 'Inlaid' Binding[ART DECO BINDING]. GAY, John. The Beggar's Opera. With an introduction by Oswald Doughty… twenty-eight plates in collotype and a facsimile title of the first edition. London: Daniel O'Connor, 1922. Extra-illustrated by the insertion of four early engravings mounted on card.Large octavo (10 9/16 x 7 1/4 inches; 268 x 184 mm.). xxxiv, viii, 99, 91, imprint) pp. Title pages printed in red and black, twenty-four illustrations and plates together with an additional four early engravings mounted on card.Bound in the 'Art Deco' style ca. 1922. Full brown morocco, front cover with a double-ruled gilt border enclosing gilt dots, in turn surrounding an inlaid dark green morocco frame richly decorated with gilt leaves and vines and each corner with four inlaid cream morocco flowers. In the center is a rectangular panel, double-ruled in gilt and lettered "The Beggars Opera by John Gay". Above and below this panel are gilt leaves and vines and six inlaid red morocco flowers. Lower cover with double-ruled gilt border enclosing gilt dots, enclosing two inlaid dark green morocco frames ruled in gilt. Spine with five raised bands, elaborately tooled in gilt in a floral design with four inlaid red morocco flowers. Lettered in gilt in two compartments, gilt decorated board-edges, and wide turn-ins with elaborate gilt flowers and stems. Brown watered silk liners and end-leaves, all edges gilt. With the book-plates of "HB" and "Jeffrey Stern" on verso of front free end-paper. Minimal wear to watered silk end-leaves otherwise near fine. Although unsigned, there is a small pencil notation on a front blank leaf "Designed and hand tooled by H. Brown. Forwarded by A. Warnock". We contacted Jeffrey Stern (a UK Antiquarian Bookseller) to ask if he had made the pencil note regarding H. Brown or A. Warnock - but alas it was so many years ago that he could not remember. In our opinion this binding was most certainly not done by an amateur - it has certain features which suggest the work of Alfred De Sauty who was working in London up to 1925. His London bindings were sometimes unsigned.The Beggar's Opera is a ballad opera in three acts written in 1728 by John Gay. The tale of Peachum, thief-taker and informer, conspiring to send the dashing and promiscuous highwayman Macheath to the gallows, became the theatrical sensation of the eighteenth century. In The Beggar's Opera, John Gay turned conventions of Italian opera riotously upside-down, instead using traditional popular ballads and street tunes, while also indulging in political satire at the expense of the Prime Minister, Sir Robert Walpole. Gay's highly original depiction of the thieves, informers, prostitutes and highwaymen thronging the slums and prisons of the corrupt London underworld proved brilliantly successful in exposing the dark side of a corrupt and jaded society. The Beggar's Opera premiered at the Lincoln's Inn Fields Theatre on 29 January 1728 and ran for 62 consecutive performances, the longest run in theatre history up to that time (after 146 performances of Robert Cambert's Pomone in Paris in 1671). The work became Gay's greatest success and has been played ever since; it has been called "the most popular play of the eighteenth century." In 1920, The Beggar's Opera began an astonishing revival run of 1,463 performances at the Lyric Theatre in Hammersmith, London, which was one of the longest runs in history for any piece of musical theatre at that time.John Gay (1685-1732) was an English poet and dramatist and member of the Scriblerus Club. He is best remembered for The Beggar's Opera (1728), a ballad opera. The characters, including Captain Macheath and Polly Peachum, became household names.

        Shackleton.

      London: Mills & Boon Ltd.,, 1922. A Memory. Octavo. Original blue cloth lettered in blue on spine and front board, bottom edges. With the dust jacket depicting the Endurance stuck in ice. Contemporary ownership inscription to half-title. Spine rolled, a few spots to edges, contents toned, contemporary newspaper clippings mounted to front pastedown, verso of the front free, and to blanks between the text and advertisement leaves, front free with slight residue from the removal of another clipping. A very good, bright copy in the dust jacket with a toned spine slightly chipped at the head, a very small hole to the front joint, and a few shallow nicks to joint-ends. First and only edition, first impression, of the first posthumous memoir of Shackleton, published in controversial circumstances in March 1922, just two months after the explorer's death. Begbie (1871-1929), a journalist, children's author and religious writer, met Shackleton between the Endurance and Quest expeditions, and based his account on conversations with the explorer and those who knew him, recording Shackleton's thoughts on the Endurance expedition not recorded in South (1919). Shackleton's widow Emily was in the midst of arranging a biography with William Heinemann when she received a copy of Begbie's book and was incensed, "likely over the usurpation of publishing priority, and certainly over some of Begbie's facts and whether he was sufficiently acquainted with Shackleton" (Rosove); his account is nonetheless a "lyrical, romantic, mythic word portrait of the word portrait of the great explorer, the kind still widely held and cherished by Shackleton's admirers today" (ibid.) Rare in the dust jacket.

        The Waste Land, in the The Criterion

      London: Cobden-Sanderson, 1922. RARE FIRST PRINTING of one of the cornerstones of twentieth-century literature; one of only 600 copies printed. "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" (American National Biography).This appearance in the inaugural issue of The Criterion, a journal created and edited by Eliot himself, preceded both the book edition and the printing in the American magazine The Dial.In: The Criterion Volume 1, No. 1. London: R. Cobden-Sanderson, October, 1922. Octavo, original printed wrappers; remnants of original glassine; custom box. With rare subscription form for The Criterion laid in. A few spots of soiling to wrappers, edges a little rough. An exceptionally nice copy. RARE. Very Good.

        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] HoudiniHH:JSHoudini 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] HoudiniHH:JSMain 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.

        [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.

      np, New York 1922 - 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 Roosevelt At 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 go [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

      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.

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.

        Faust. Eine Tragà die von Goethe.

      Printed by the Kleukens Press in Frankfurt am Main for the Ernst Ludwig Presse 1922-3, Darmstadt - Two volumes bound in one by Alfred Hüter of Berlin, with his binding label. Woodcut titles and initials. Printed in red and black in Kleukens-Antiqua type at the Kleukens Presse. Pp. 214, [3]; 328. 4to., full vellum binding over stiff boards with calligraphic title in black ink on spine. 4pp prospectus inserted loose. Slight wear to the lower sewn headband, first gathering a little shaken, few small marks to lower cover, but generally a very handsome volume. Two volumes of three, the last being published in 1924 being a small volume entitled 'Urfaust & Paralimpomena' The colophon declares that two Frankfurt men, Moritz Freiherr von Bethmann and Hans von Pasavant paid for the paper on the understanding that the Kleukens Presse would repay the same amount to the Goethe Museum in Frankfurt. The dramatic full page opening initial I is reminiscent of the Doves Bible. Indeed, the great German book and type designer and printer Christian Kleukens was influenced by Cobden-Sanderson. The Ernst Ludwig Presse was founded in 1907 as private printing company for the learned Grand Duke Ernst Ludwig von Hessen, with the great typographer and printer Friedrich Wilhelms Kleukens as its director. From the beginning it displayed the superb typefaces of Friedrich and his brother Christian who later joined the Press as compositor and pressman, taking over as director in 1914. In fact there were four types which were created by Friedrich Kleukens for the press, namely Kleukens-Antiqua, Kleukens-Fraktur, Ingeborg-Antiqua and Helga-Antiqua. As one of the first German private presses, the Ernst Ludwig press followed English examples of the Arts and Crafts movement, such as the Kelmscott Press and the Doves Press. In 1919 Christian Kleukens with Rudolf G. Binding founded the Kleukens-Presse in Frankfurt am Main which became affiliated with his Ernst Ludwig Presse, hence this 'joint' production. Kleukens also founded the Kleukens-Binderei in 1919 under Ernst Rehbein which moved to Frankfurt am Main from Leipzig three years later. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
