        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's clear and in-depth analysis explores the Dow Theory'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'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).

        Etiquette

      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).

        Ulysses

      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'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.

        Letter signed.

      Garmisch, 25. VII. 1922. - Large 4to 2 pp. To the Austrian bass-baritone singer Alfred Jerger, appealing to Jerger's conscience not to leave the Vienna State Opera and go to Switzerland: "[.] The Swiss opera stages are excellent, but I think for a prestige abroad they can not offer what the Vienna State Opera can afford. Before you do a hasty step, think it over carefully, and in your own interest be not casual in risking the breech of the contract [.]" (transl. from the German original).

        Mountain Madness.

      London: W. Collins Sons & Co. Ltd., 1922 - Octavo. Original green vertical grain cloth, titles to spine gilt and to front board in blind. With the dust jacket. Small contemporary gift inscription to front free endpaper, some foxing to edges of text block. An excellent copy in the very lightly edge-rubbed jacket. With 11 black and white photographic plates, including frontispiece. First edition, first impression. "The madness seized me when staying in La Grave, at the foot of the Meije, that most splendid peak in the Dauphiny Alps. The hotel dog was mostly to blame. Chiefly mastiff with a dash of foxhound, we called him Pas Demi. He made no demur and always answered. He was beautiful and had a partiality for taking lonely ladies out for walks; he was a very perfect knight, bristling and barking at any man who came too near. Indeed, if one were seated when a member of that suspected sex came by, it was well to rise and avert bloodshed." [Attributes: First Edition]

        Ulysses

      First Edition Softcover First Edition. #105. 1 of only 150 copies on Verge d'Arches paper; in a slightly larger format than the other versions of the First Edition. In the original blue-green wraps, lacking the backstrip. Otherwise complete. Arguably the most influential work of the 20th century, this copy has an interesting history. According to details in Sylvia Beach's notebook, it was originally purchased by John Quinn in 1922. Quinn, the New York attorney and patron of the arts and literature, was a financial supporter of Joyce. In addition to his purchase of First Edition copies of Ulysses, he owned many other Joyce works, and also purchased the original manuscript of "Ulysses" from Joyce. He amassed a historicallysignificant collection of books by many of the most important writers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. His library boasted modern first editions and original manuscripts, including those of Joseph Conrad, Ezra Pound, and W. B. Yeats. In addition, he provided legal assistance to the publishers of "The Little Review" for the troubles occasioned bytheir early publication of portions of "Ulysses". An unrestored copy. The missing backstrip has allowed some of the stitching to come undone. The covers are detached but present, and have some edgewear. Housed in an attractive, appropriately decorated clam-shellcase. Please see our website (crossroadbookstore.com) for collation, along with further details on the provenance and condition of this book.

Original natural linen-backed pale blue boards, paper labels to the spines, endpapers to match the boards, fore and bottom edges untrimmed. Coloured frontispiece to each, with tissue guards, and 4 other coloured plates in all, 43 black and white plates, 5 maps, 4 of them folding.

An excellent set, internally clean and bright. First American edition, from English sheets, simultaneous issue, in Cherry-Garrard's preferred "Polar" binding of cloth-backed boards. "Cherry-Garrard seems an unlikely hero of Antarctic exploration, but he has achieved that status largely through this book … a young but wealthy patrician, near-sighted and frail, he paid his way onto the crew as an assistant zoologist, but performed splendidly in many harrowing situations" (Books on Ice). The "worst journey" referred to in the title is not "Scott's ill-fated rendezvous with death," but the earlier Ross Island Winter Journey, from Cape Evans to the penguin colony at Cape Crozier, with Edward Wilson and Henry "Birdie" Bowers. Both of his companions on this trip were to die on the Southern Journey with Scott, Cherry-Garrard being with the last group sent back before the final assault on the South Pole, he was also sent to rendezvous with the returning party of Scott and his four companions, and was the discoverer of the tent and their frozen bodies. "Widely regarded as the masterpiece of polar exploration.
