      New York & London: Harper & Brothers, (1922). First Edition. Hardcover. The pictorial boards for this book are almost always quite worn and the dust jacket hardly ever present. This copy is quite decent with minor rubbing to the front cover with old staining to the rear cover. The spine and the front free endpaper have been expertly replaced and look exactly like the original. Very Good, lacking the uncommon dustwrapper. A very early, if not first, printing with no date on the title page and the code "B-W" on the copyright page indicating publication in February 1922. Chaplin's account of what Europe did to the world's most popular movie actor, illustrated with photographs. This copy bears a scarce SIGNED INSCRIPTION by the author on the recto of the frontispiece photograph: "To my dear old pal/Billy. Hoping you will/have a little fun/browsing through this/Charlie Chaplin/Feb. 24th 1922." Books signed by Chaplin, especially of such an early date when he was at the height of his popularity, are quite scarce. We have handled only one other signed copy of this book in over twenty years and it was inscribed in June, 1922.

      1922. 1. OAKLEY,VIOLET. THE HOLY EXPERIMENT: A MESSAGE TO THE WORLD FROM PENNSYLVANIA. Privately Printed for subscribers on handmade paper by the Beck Engraving Company (1922). Large folio (15 1/2 x 23"), 51p. plus 7 page bibliographical note and list of subscribers. Loose as issued and gathered into sections with separate printed covers, bound in full leather decorated in gold and black, metallic colored endpapers and closed with metal clasp closures. Some fading and markings on the leather else near Fine. PRIVATELY PRINTED FOR SUBSCRIBERS, LIMITED TO 500 NUMBERED COPIES (OF WHICH 250 ARE AN INTERNATIONAL EDITION WITH TEXT TRANSLATED INTO VARIOUS LANGUAGES), SIGNED BY OAKLEY. This is one of the most beautiful and extravagant productions of any of the Brandywine artists. Violet Oakley was a woman ahead of her time. She was a highly acclaimed muralist, a feminist, a socialist and a pacifist. It was her pacifism that contributed to her undertaking this book, going to press during the Conference on the Limitation of Armaments held in Washington D.C. A preliminary leaf notes "When it is published a few weeks hence, may it open its leaves to a World set free from the bondage and the burden of competitive armaments." In 1902, Oakley received the commission to complete 18 murals for the Pennsylvania state Capitol Building in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Edwin Abbey was given the largest part of the commission. When he died in 1911, Oakley was asked to finish his part of the project as well. This commission marked "the first time such recognition had been accorded to a woman in America." (Studios At Cogslea p.29). The Holy Experiment refers to the State of Pennsylvania and represents a summary of Oakley's work for the murals in Harrisburg. The text is entirely in calligraphy (printed in red, blue and black) and features 22 of the most magnificent, richly colored, gilt illuminated plates, each mounted on hand-made paper with gilt borders. A few of the plates have fold-out panels. There are also several woodcuts throughout the text. A masterpiece of printing as well as a beautiful book. Due to its large size, few of these copies have survived intact.

        The Steamer Yellow-Stone on the 19th April 1833 [Tab. 4]

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922]. Aquatint engraving Lucas Weber after Bodmer. Small marginal tears not affecting plate area. 13 5/8 x 17 inches. 18 3/4 x 25 1/2 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) A fine view of the side-wheeler in the then treacherous waters of the Missouri River: the longest river in the country, it was considered by far the most difficult of all western rivers to navigate. The steamer Yellow Stone had run aground on a sandbank on the evening of the 18th and remained there overnight. The following morning a flatboat from Fort Osage, located some three and half miles upstream, had arrived to unload part of the cargo and lighten its draft. Prince Maximilian recorded in his journal that `Mr. Bodmer had made from shore this morning a pretty sketch of the ship as it was unloaded, but the wind was unpleasant and stirred up so much sand that he could not paint'. 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.

        Winston S. Churchill Official Biography, Companion Volume V, Parts 1, 2, 3. The Exchequer Years, The Wilderness Years, The Coming of War

      All three Volume V Companions, each fine in a fine dust jacket. All three are U.S. first editions. These three volumes are the key to forming complete complete sets of Churchill?s Official Biography. Many sets are without these volumes since there was only a single printing in England (which included sheets for the American Edition) and the volume V Companions were published in smaller quantities than the other Official Biography Volumes. Offered here is a rare prize for collectors ? all three Volume V Companions together. Part 1, The Exchequer Years 1922-1929 has a trifling bump to the lower corner of the top board and a tiny previous owner?s sticker to the ffep, but it otherwise immaculate in an unclipped, nearly perfect dust jacket. Part 2, the Wilderness years 1929-1935, likewise has a tiny previous owner?s sticker to the ffep, but features an immaculate binding. The dust jacket is price-clipped, but otherwise flawless. Part 3, The Coming of War 1936-1939, is truly fine in a truly fine unclipped dust jacket. The only flaw is some neat pencil notation along the right edge of the ffep and a small triangle at the top right corner of the ffep has been clipped.

Di notevole interesse vanno sottolineate le straordinarie copertine illustrate da MARIO SIRONI (1885-1961) pubblicate ininterrotamente per 13 anni dal genn. 1922 al febbraio 1935. In tutti i fascicoli compaiono numerose pagine di pubblicità con grandi aziende sostenitrici ed enti.
