        Oto Indian / Missouri Indian / Chief of the Puncas [Tab. 7]

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922]. Aquatint engraving by Hürlimann after Bodmer. Small tear to upper blank margin not affecting plate area. 13 5/8 x 19 inches. 18 1/4 x 24 1/4 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) This dignified triple portrait is made up from three sketches made by Bodmer over a period of more than a year: the unidentified Oto man was sketcehd at Pilcher's trading post on the return down river in May 1834, the Missouri man, Mahinkacha ('Maker of Knives') was drawn on 16 May 1834 at Joseph Roubidoux's trading post above Cantonment Leavenworth. The most striking image, of Schuh-De-Ga-Che ('He Who Smokes'), was made by Bodmer on the way up the river after stopping on 11 May 1833 near White Bear Bluffs to take on board three Ponca Indians. A chief of his tribe, Schuh-De-Ga-Che wears a peace medal with a depiction of President Madison. 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.

      London, 1890 and 1922. - (Small) 8vo. Altogether (1½+1+1=) 3½ pp. on 4 ff. To John Henderson, Secretary of the National Liberal Club. I: "[.] Would next Saturday be too sudden? I can think of nothing better, although I have two lectures to give on Saturday, + would rather appreciate an evening's rest beforehand. Still, as you say your room is a small one, I could take matters quietly in an address on 'Politics, Tory, Liberal + Working Class' [.]" (October 8, 1890). - II: "I have just been reminded that the Chrystal Palace concerto begins next Saturday. This will make it very inconvenient for me to go to Harlesden [.]" (October 9, 1890). - III: "No: if I were to add . chairtaking to my platform activities, it would finish me altogether. Besides, it is very bad economy for the Circle to waste a star speaker on the chair.

        The Garland [Signed / Underskrevet] [Kransen -- Kristin Lavransdatter; 1]

      London: Gyldendal, 1922. First UK edition. Hardcover. Very Good +/very good. A Very Good + copy of the first UK edition, first printing (modest rubbing to spine head and tail, tiny rub at each board's outer corners, toning to pastedowns and adjoining face of each free endpaper), in a Very Good dust jacket (general wear with some tears and small chips, moderate staining to the spine and common soiling to the rear panel), SIGNED BY SIGRID UNDSET on the title page. Originally published as "Kransen" (1920), this is the first installment in Undset's famed Kristin Lavransdatter trilogy, her most important work. The trilogy consists of "Kransen" ("The Garland", "The Wreath" or "The Bridal Wreath"), "Husfrue" ("The Wife" or "The Mistress of Husaby") and "Korset" ("The Cross"). Sigrid Undset won the 1928 Nobel Prize in Literature "principally for her powerful descriptions of Northern life during the Middle Ages".. and the Kristin Lavransdatter trilogy was the work primarily responsible for her winning the Prize. Set in 14th Century Norway, the trilogy follows the life of the fictional Kristin Lavransdatter. Though fictional, the trilogy is known for its historical and ethnological accuracy. Signed copies of Sigrid Undset's works are rather uncommon. A Very Good or better copy of one of the Nobel Prize-winner's most important works, SIGNED BY SIGRID UNDSET. Quite Scarce.

      1922. Canterbury: Printed for private circulation by H. J. Goulden, 1922. Original pale blue printed wrappers. First Edition, first printing -- possibly consisting of only 75 copies. As with the companion volume issued by Goulden, JOHN GALSWORTHY, there were two distinct printings of this piece. The first printing has no title page, is stapled, and is printed on Chatham Mills watermarked paper. Conrad "objected to the copies originally run off because there was no title page except the outside printed wrapper. So, to please the author, a title page and half-title were added, the type re-imposed for gathering in quires of ten leaves, and a new printing made... Copies from the second printing of both pamphlets are much more common than copies from the first printings" [Cagle]. (It is often stated, but not by Cagle, that only 75 copies were printed; if this is true, it would apply only to the first printing, as the second is not that scarce.)~This is a near-fine copy, originally stapled but now sewn (undoubtedly due to the tendency of staples to rust); the edges of the wrapper are a little faded, as usual. Cagle A56a.

        Extracts from Press Notices of Ulysses by James Joyce

      Narrow 4to. Pale pink self-cover. (4pp). Very good. Mild edgewear only, with rear leaf (p. 4) showing moderate age toning. Fairly attractive copy of this delicate flyer, published in 1922. Consists of snippets from 47 reviews of "Ulysses" by noted writers, critics and oft-quoted publications, ranging in length from one good-sized paragraph to a half dozen words. The front page includes (among others) Ezra Pound expostulating in French, Arnold Bennett calling Joyce "a very astonishing phenomenon in letters... The book is not pornographic, but it is more indecent, obscene, scatological, and licentious than the majority of professedly pornographical books...."), the second page includes remarks by Ford Madox Hueffer, Shane Leslie, Edmund Wilson, Gilbert Seldes, the third page includes Holbrook Jackson, Ernest Boyd, Djuna Barnes, and the final page includes Matthew Josephson, Evelyn Scott, Alfred Noyes -- and many others. Comments range from the hero-worshipping ("one feels admiration that is almost reverence for the incredible labours of this incredible genius," "A man of genius," "A striking literary genius," "An egocentric genius," etc.) to the disgusted ("most loathsome book issued in our own or any other time," "A freak production," "not alone sordidly pornographic, but it is intensely dull," etc.). Not surprisingly, few copies of this flimsy but fascinating ephemeral item have survived. Interestingly, this rare survivor is accompanied by a large portion (10" X 24") of a page from the March 5, 1922 issue of "The Observer" -- the page containing review Sisley Huddleston's review of "Ulysses," which is quoted on the second page of the "Extracts" -- which also proves 1922 as the year of publication, though some mistakenly cite 1921.

        Zur Theorie der Lichtfortpflanzung in dispergierenden Medien

      Berlin: Sitzungsberichten der Preussischen Akademie der Wissenschaften, 1922 Einstein, Albert (1879-1955). Zur Theorie der Lichtfortpflanzung in dispergierenden Medien. Complete. Quarto. Offprint from Sitzungsberichten der Preussischen Akademie der Wissenschaften. Berlin: 1922. First edition in very fine condition. This superb offprint is a separate printing of the Prussian Academy's session reports, here with independent pagination. A small number of such off prints were presented to the author by the publisher as voucher copies. References: Schilpp-Shields 162; Weil 120. This paper gives evidence that Einstein’s ideas on the photon were not able to contradict classical theory. "Since, after 1917, Einstein firmly believed that light-quanta were here to stay, it is not surprising that he would look for new ways in which the existence of photons might lead to observable deviation from the classical picture. In this he did not succeed. At one point, in 1921, he thought he had found a new quantum criterion, but it soon turned out to be a false lead [as demonstrated in this paper]". An excellent example. "The early Offprints from "Sitzungsberichten." are called "Sonderabdruck" up to Weil No.165 (including this). From Weil 166 they are called "Sonderausgabe.". - Before 161 (up to 160) the Offprints do not have separate title and pagination (the pagination follows the numbering in the periodical). From 166 the Offprint has both separate printed title and pagination. - ( So Weil Nos 161-165 is still "Abdruck", but with separate title and pagination)." . First Thus.

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.

        Design for a portfolio

      [Berlin, n.d.].. Original composition in red gouache, black ink and gold metallic paint, on textured ochre leatherette, mounted on a red buckram slipcase, with inserted red buckram chemise and inner sleeve of white Bütten paper, reinforced with loose panels of cardboard. Painted panel: 368 x 275 mm. (ca. 14 1/2 x 10 3/4 inches). Slipcase: 423 x 325 mm. (ca. 16 5/8 x 12 3/4 inches). This large and majestically impressive handmade portfolio represents a variation of Buchholz’s painted wooden relief, “Roter Kreis im Goldkreis,” of 1922, of which Ingrid Weisenmayer has commented “Der Dreiklang der Farben Schwarz, Gold und Rot steigert die Wirkung der einzelnen Farben noch zusätzlich. Es ist charakteristisch, dass Buchholz, der sich so vehement von jeglicher Kunsttradition distanzieren wollte, auf mittelalterliche Traditionen zurückgreift, und diese in einen modernen Kontext stellt” (Weisenmayer, in Gassen/Mengden). Comparison might equally be made with another painted panel of 1923, Buchholz’s “Neue Tafel Nr. 70.” These and similar motifs were reprised by the artist many times, through late in his career. Slight rippling of the panel at foot; a little light rubbing, otherwise in fine, bright condition.

        The Novels of Charlotte, Emily, & Anne BrontÎ

      London,: J.M. Dent, 1922.. Six volumes, octavo, with a total of 60 colour plates (including frontispieces), one spine label chipped, otherwise a most attractive set in uniform half polished navy calf by Bayntun with ornate gilt spine ornament and crimson labels. Magnificent collected edition of the BrontÎ novels, here presented in splendid early polished calf bindings by the famous English bookbinding firm of Bayntun of Bath.This collected edition is desirable for the sixty full-page colour plates by the fantasy illustrator Edmund Dulac. The BrontÎ novels offered Dulac a challenging change from the fantasy illustration for which he is justifiably famous (indeed, his Arabian Nights, Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam and Edgar Allan Poe are paradigm works of their genre). The illustrations Dulac prepared for the BrontÎ novels are both subtle and evocative, blending detail and social nuance with the opalescent dreaminess that characterises his previous work.

        WORST JOURNEY IN THE WORLD: Antarctic 1910-1913

      London: Constable and Company, 1922. 2 volumes. First edition, first issue. 73 panoramas, maps and illustrations, ten of them folding,a number in colours, by Dr. Edward A. Wilson and other members of the expedition. 8vo, publisher’s original linen backed blue paper boards with manila lettering labels on the spines. lxiv, 300, [4]; viii, 301-580, index pp. A pleasing and very well preserved set of this scarce book, and a partially unopened, pristine copy. No chipping or bumping or damage to the bindings. Very clean internally with virtually none of the usual foxing encountered in these volumes, some light, typically seen spotting at half-titles from offsetting of the pastedowns. Spine labels somewhat mellowed from age, one label with light chipping, but both of the original replacement labels remain tipped in as issued and may be used to replace the existing labels as desired. IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION OF A CORNERSTONE TEXT. One of the most sought after and most difficult to find first editions in the polar canon, this is a dramatic and splendidly written account of Scott's 1910-1913 expedition. This is the dramatic and splendidly written account of Scott's last expedition from its departure from England in 1910 to its return to New Zealand in 1913. The expedition was comprised of three actual journeys: the depot journey, during which supplies were laid for the polar trip; the winter journey to Cape Crozier to visit the penguin rookery--the "worst journey" of the title; and the final, tragic attempt on the pole, during which Scott and three others perished. The story of Scott's last expedition is of course a great tale, and Cherry-Garrard uses his considerable skill as a writer to heighten the drama. “And I tell you, if you have the desire for knowledge and the power to give it physical expression, go out and explore. If you are a brave man you will do nothing: if you are fearful you may do much, for none but cowards have need to prove their bravery. Some will tell you that you are mad, and nearly all will say,’What is the use?’ For we are a nation of shopkeepers, and no shopkeeper will look at research which does not promise him a financial return within a year. And so you will sledge nearly alone, but those with whom you sledge will not be shopkeepers: that is worth a great deal. If you march your Winter Journeys you will have your reward, so long as all you want is a penquin’s egg.”-Cherry-Garrard. The best written and most enduring account of exploits in the Antarctic. - Taurus Later editions omitted the numerous panoramas, color plates, one map, and most of the photographs.

      [Paris], Tokyo: [Shakespeare and Company ], Yushodo/Inkpen Press, [1922], 2004. A very finely produced facsimile of the first edition of Ulysses, LIMITED to 120 copies. The facsimile is printed on fine paper by the Inkpen Press. Large thick 8vo [195 x 235 mm], beautifully hand-bound in full crushed blue morocco, the spine handsomely lettered in gilt, housed in a blue moire cloth slipcase. (10), 732, (2) pp. A mint, pristine and superb copy. A BEAUTIFULLY PRODUCED FACSIMILE OF THE FIRST EDITION OF JAMES JOYCE’S ULYSSES, the most important novel of the twentieth century . The true first edition of this book is now beyond the range of all but a very small handful of collectors, this facsimile provides the opportunity to own this important and handsome work in a format, and with the feel, of the first edition. ULYSSES can be viewed as the pinnacle of the Modernist movement, and its impact on all subsequent western literature is unmistakable. Such writers as Virginia Woolf, John Dos Passos, William Faulkner, Samuel Beckett, Malcolm Lowry, and Anthony Burgess have all paid tribute, consciously or unconsciously, to Joyce's influence. Burgess as well pronounced it the greatest single work in the English literature of this century, and he is not alone in that opinion. According to James Spoerri, "This fortunate combination of printer and publisher resulted in the appearance of ULYSSES as a book whose physical aspect is particularly suited to its content. It is a fat and inviting volume, the blue and white of its covers subtly evocative of the Greece whose epic it so closely parallels" (quoted in the catalogue for the Garden Sale, Sotheby's 1989). While this facsimile is of course not the true first edition, the physical attributes are the same.
