        The Trembling of the Veil

      London: Privately printed for Subscribers by T. Werner Laurie Ltd. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. SIGNED LIMITED FIRST EDITION of Yeats's autobiographical work; one of only 1000 copies signed by Yeats. "One aspect of the fin de siècle nurtured in Yeats one of the most fruitful strains in his sensibility. The sense of imminent revelation appealed greatly to him. Looking back from 1922, he titled his autobiographical account of the decade of the 1890s The Trembling of the Veil. He recalled that Mallarmé has said that 'his epoch was troubled by the trembling of the veil of the Temple,' and that 'as those words were still true, during the years of my life described in this book,' he had named it accordingly" (The Cambridge Companion to W.B. Yeats). Octavo, original half parchment over light green boards; original dust jacket. London: Privately printed for Subscribers by T. Werner Laurie Ltd, 1922. Dust jacket spine with a little wear (slightly affecting label) and browning.

      London: Privately printed for the Navarre Society, 1922. Hardcover. 232 x 152 mm (9 1/8 x 6"). Five volumes. Publisher's original white buckram, gilt, covers with double fillet border and central medallion containing a fleur-de-lys, flat spines outlined by double fillet and featuring a tall tree with a grape vine twining around its trunk, gilt titling, top edges gilt, other edges untrimmed and MOSTLY UNOPENED. IN ORIGINAL GRAY DUST JACKETS. With 150 head- and tailpieces by Dunker and 73 engraved plates designed by S. Freudenberg, as called for, all plates with tissue guards. Spines of dust jackets a little sunned and with very slight traces of use, one fore edge uneven (paper flaw), one tissue guard creased, but A REMARKABLY FINE SET, in as close to original condition as one could hope to find. Inspired by Boccaccio's "Decameron," this is an attractively printed, attractively bound edition in fabulous condition of a collection of tales comprising the most famous work of Margaret of Navarre (1492-1549), author, intellectual, and patron of humanists and reformers. It was originally intended to contain 100 stories, but the author died before the work could be completed. Characterized by Samuel Putnam as "the first modern woman," Marguerite d'Angoulême, the sister of French king Francis I and the wife of Henri II, king of Navarre, was an intelligent and unusually well-educated woman who could read Latin, Italian, Spanish, and Hebrew. She was very interested in church reform, and corresponded with Erasmus and Calvin, even sheltering the latter at her court for a time. The tales in the "Heptameron" (so called because it covers a seven-day period) are told by travellers stuck at an abbey in the Pyrenees after floods have washed out a bridge. The stories deal with love "as a serious and sometimes a tragic passion. Each tale is followed by a discussion in which views commonly current at the time, e.g., on the nature of love and its manifestations, are advanced, and opposed by the more moral and religious opinions of Marguerite herself. . . . There is no doubt the the 'Heptameron' was designed to have an elevating and civilizing influence. The tales throw light on details of life and custom among the upper classes of the day." ("Oxford Companion") While no one would mistake the Navarre Society publications for items from the Kelmscott Press, these are books made with care. An advertisement in "The Library" in 1923 says that "the Fine Publications of the Navarre Society . . . strike a new note in fine book production," being "limited in issue, printed in large type upon specially made paper, illustrated by leading artists, bound in cream buckram, gilt extra, and issued at moderate prices to subscribers." Our set is in impeccable condition, with unused interiors, spotless, unworn gilt-decorated white bindings, and beautifully preserved, uncommonly seen dust jackets.

      1922. Canterbury: Printed for Private Circulation by H. J. Goulden, 1922. Original pale turquoise wrappers. First Edition, first printing (i.e. with no title page). Galsworthy had met Conrad in early 1893, when a passenger on board the "Torrens" -- of which ship Conrad was then first mate. This was actually written as a review of Galsworthy's Forsyte novel A MAN OF PROPERTY; the review appeared in the 31 March 1906 issue of Outlook magazine. Conrad later had to apologize to his friend Galsworthy when this was inadvertantly omitted from NOTES ON LIFE & LETTERS (it was collected in the posthumous LAST ESSAYS instead).~As with the companion piece THE DOVER PATROL, Conrad disliked the initial printing because it did not have a title page (other than the front wrapper), and asked that it immediately be reprinted to include one. "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 (some fading of the edges of the pale turquoise wrapper, as always). Cagle A57b.

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1922. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine-. True First Printing (without the publisher's seal on the copyright page or the concluding advertisements on pp. 451-452 of later printings) of the author's second novel. 8vo; [10], 449, [1]pp. Publisher's dark blue-green linen-like cloth, the spine lettered gilt, the upper cover blind-stamped with the title and author, the fore-edge untrimmed. A just about Fine copy, (lacking the dust jacket), save for offsetting to the end papers and faintly discernible pencil erasures to the front fly leaf. Bruccoli A8.1.a& The Beautiful and Damned, in cut and edited form, first appeared in seven installments in Metropolitan magazine, from September 1921 to March 1922. The book, according to Bruccoli, came out on 4 March 1922, in a first impression of 20,600 copies. It went through two more printings that year, for a total of 50,000 copies. After the spectacular success of Fitzgerald's first novel, This Side of Paradise (1920), he struck out in a new direction, presenting in The Beautiful and Damned a more sparing, focused narrative, relying largely on an omniscient narrator. "Its style," according to the Literary Encyclopedia, "moves towards that integration of romantic and modernist elements which will come to such dazzling fruition in his next novel, The Great Gatsby."

      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.

        Fac Simile of an Indian Painting [Tab. 22]

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922]. Aquatint engraving by J. Hurlimann after Bodmer. 13 3/8 x 18 3/4 inches. 19 3 /16 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) An important record of the work of the prominent Mandan Chief, Mató-Tópe (`Four Bears'). He here records an incident from amongst his own many war exploits: during hand-to- hand combat with a Cheyenne Chief, he grabbed for his opponent's knife and wounded his own hand in the process. In the actual encounter he managed to get hold of the knife and used it to kill his opponent. Mató-Tópe was the second chief of the Mandans, one of George Catlin's closest Indian friend (he had painted him in 1832) and a popular leader amongst his people, respected for his prowess in battle. He was also admired by Prince Maximilian, not only for his bravery and his knowledge of the customs of the Mandans and the neighboring Arikaras, but also for his strength of character and generosity. 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.

        The Waste Land

      New York: Boni and Liveright. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Fine. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE, FIRST STATE of the most influential poem of the twentieth century. Complete with the extremely rare dust jacket and glassine. With important provenance: from the estate of Scofield Thayer. "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. Pound, who helped pare and sharpen the poem when Eliot stopped in Paris on his way to and from Lausanne, praised it with a godparent's fervor. As important, Eliot's old friend Thayer, by then publisher of the Dial, decided even before he had seen the finished poem to make it the centerpiece of the magazine's attempt to establish American letters in the vanguard of modern culture. To secure The Waste Land for the Dial, Thayer arranged in 1922 to award Eliot the magazine's annual prize of two thousand dollars and to trumpet The Waste Land's importance with an essay commissioned from the Dial's already influential Edmund Wilson. It did not hurt that 1922 also saw the long-heralded publication of Ulysses, or that in 1923 Eliot linked himself and Joyce with Albert Einstein in the public mind in an essay entitled 'Ulysses, Order and Myth.' Meteorically, Eliot, Joyce, and, to a lesser extent, Pound were joined in a single glow--each nearly as notorious as Picasso" (American National Biography). Provenance: From the estate of Scofield Thayer, Eliot's good friend and the publisher of the Dial, who awarded Eliot the Dial's 1922 annual literary prize and was instrumental in getting the poem published. This copy has never been in circulation - it has come directly from the Thayer estate, with an accompanying letter of provenance. #91 of 1000 copies published.

Ses petits fils reprennent ensuite la boutique, et Jean DESPREZ la dirige à partir de 1922. C'est lui qui lance les quatre parfums présentés.

        One of Ours

      Alfred A. Knopf New York 1922 - First Trade Edition. Original tan cloth. Seldom encountered signed and dated first trade edition of Cather's Pulitzer Prize winning novel. Inscription at front endpaper reads simply, "Willa Cather / November 17 / 1925". Cather was giving a lecture at the University of Chicago on this date and presumably this copy was signed at the event for Louis A. Kohn, a prominent Chicago lawyer and associate of Adlai E. Stevenson, whose ownership signature accompanies Cather's at endpaper, his bookplate also resides at front pastedown. The lecture was given at Mandel Hall to a capacity audience. Cather did not feel the speech went well and blamed it upon the ugliness of the lecture hall. She wrote a letter to a friend that the place made her feel wretched and caused her to stutter. Very Good firmly bound volume, some soiling to spine, spine end cloth rubbed, endpapers display soiling. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      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 very good 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). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        ZIVOT. Výtvarný sborník. List pro výtvarnou práci a umeleckou kulturu.

      Prague: F. Borovy, 1921-44; 1946-48 1922 - Quarto, octavo, boards, cloth and wrappers. Zivot (Life) was an important art journal, various editors, running from 1921 to 1948 except for 1945. In 1922 under the editorship of architect Jaroslav Krejcar and Karel Teige, it became briefly a flagship of the avant-garde and arm of Devetsil, and that annual is much sought-after with important articles and graphics heralding the Devetsil movement. There it announced Czech art and design to be in synch with the leading experiments in international modernism. Some years were released as annuals alone, others came in segments of ten issues. The journal’s subtitle ranges from „Art Review“ to „Review of Art & Literature“ to „Papers on the Fine Arts and Artistic Culture“ with a few further variants. Aside from the 1922 edition, it was generally dedicated to all aspects of art history, with emphasis on more recent developments but as a continuum with past traditions. There are a host of original graphics by Czech artists throughout, including a signed woodcut by Josef Šíma and stamped litho by František Tichý, a number of linocuts by Josef Capek, original woodcuts by Sedlácek and others. While the greatest emphasis was on painting, graphics and sculpture of all periods in art history, there are also interesting treatments of current architectural and stage design. There are also important poems, treatises and critical reviews by the Czech illuminati of the day. Complete, except lacking four issues of year XXI. Very uncommon, with library holdings only scattered issues and years and no complete sets outside of the Czech Republic. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
