        Indian Utensils and Arms [Tab. 21]

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922]. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by A. Zschokke and Hürlimann after Bodmer. 15 1/4 x 20 3/8 inches. 19 5/16 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 ethnographical record centering on Bodmer's careful drawing of a buffalo robe decorated by the Mandan Chief Mató-Tópe with a depiction of several of his exploits including a hand-to-hand battle with a Cheyenne Chief (the original was purchased by Prince Maximilian and is now in the Linden-Museum in Stuttgart, Germany). Surrounding the robe are various other objects, including a pipe that had belonged to Dipäuch, a respected elder of the Mandan Tribe, as well as a snow-shoe, a fashioned ermine skin and a knife in a bead-fringed scabbard. 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.

        “Paradise of Children, The”

      1922. A Superb Original Arthur Rackham Watercolor Drawingfor Nathaniel Hawthorne’s “A Wonder Book” RACKHAM, Arthur (1867-1939). “The Paradise of Children.” London: 1922. Original pen-and-ink and watercolor drawing for the tinted line drawing illustrating “The Paradise of Children” (“Pandora’s Box”) in Nathaniel Hawthorne’s A Wonder Book (London: [n.d., 1922]). Signed and dated at lower right. Image size: 15 x 11 inches (381 x 279 mm.). Matted, framed, and glazed.“Long, long ago, when this old world was in its tender infancy, there was a child, who never had either a father or a mother; and, that he might not be lonely, another child, fatherless and motherless like himself, was sent from a far country, to live with him, and be his playfellow and helpmate. Her name was Pandora.The first thing that Pandora saw, when she entered the cottage where Epimetheus dwelt, was a great box. And almost the first question which she put to him, after crossing the threshold, was this,—‘Epimetheus, what have you in that box?’ ‘My dear little Pandora,’ answered Epimetheus, ‘That is a secret, and you must be kind enough not to ask any questions about it. The box was left here to be kept safely, and I do not myself know what it contains.’‘But who gave it to you?’ asked Pandora. ‘And where did it come from?’‘That is a secret too,’ replied Epimetheus.‘How provoking!’ exclaimed Pandora, pouting her lip. ‘I wish the great ugly box were out of the way!’‘Oh come, don’t think of it anymore” cried Epimetheus. “Let us run out of doors, and have some nice play with the other children.’It is thousands of years since Epimetheus and Pandora were alive; and the world, nowadays, is a very different sort of thing from what it was in their time. Then, everybody was a child. There needed no fathers and mothers to take care of the children; because there was no danger, nor trouble of any kind, and no clothes to be mended, and there was always plenty to eat and drink. Whenever a child wanted his dinner, he found it growing on a tree; and, if he looked at the tree in the morning, he could see the expanding blossom of that night’s supper; or, at eventide, he saw the tender bud of tomorrow’s breakfast. It was a very pleasant life indeed. No labor to be done, no tasks to be studied; nothing but sports and dances, and sweet voices of children talking, or caroling like birds, or gushing out in merry laughter, throughout the livelong day.”This charming watercolor drawing depicts life as it was before Pandora opened the “great ugly box”— a wonderfully gentle pastoral scene, with a group of three naked children dancing merrily, without a care in the world, with “the expanding blossoms of that night’s supper” hanging heavily on the tree above their heads and “the tender bud of tomorrow’s breakfast” growing on the plants in the foreground.“The moment one opens Hawthorne’s Wonder Book one becomes aware of the rounding and softening of form in Rackham’s work. The modern Pandora of Hawthorne opens her box for the world in 1921, and she is a very living young girl, with breasts just beginning to swell, indicating that Rackham was aware of the undertones of this story which is being retold with every lifetime. In ‘The Paradise of Children’ from the same text the children are drawn in line, but the washes of colour give them a rotundity of form and a very human life. The point which Rackham is making, surely, is that these are real children, a real Pandora, and not some dream from fairy land” (Fred Gettings, Arthur Rackham, p. 141).

        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.

        THE BEAUTIFUL AND DAMNED. Signed

      New York: A. L. Burt, 1922 With "Reprinted March, April 1922" stated. Nicely signed by the author in black fountain pen on the dedication page: "Sincerely / F. Scott Fitzgerald". Not the 1st edition to be sure but an early edition using the Scribner's sheets, with an undated A. L. Burt title page [possibly a cancel]. Bruccoli A.8.1.e., the 5th printing, describes a dated 1924 title page, making no mention of an undated TP but for all intents & purposes, this copy appears to be the same. 8vo., 449pp., dark green cloth, lettered in gilt; A near fine or better sharp copy, stamped in gilt on the spine & upper cover. In a flawed but lovely bright original dustwrapper lacking about 3" of the bottom spine panel. Quite nice. Rare signed. The Beautiful and Damned brought Fitzgerald accolades from those whose opinions he valued. Mencken congratulated him for staking out new ground. Fitzgerald was aiming high; he only wanted to be the best novelist of his generation* (Turnbull, 130-3 1). Fitzgerald wrote to Zelda in 1930, *I wish The Beautiful and Damned had been a maturely written book because it was all true. We ruined ourselves. I have never honestly thought that we ruined each other* (Bruccoli, 180).. Signed by Author. Early Reprint..

        Tales of the Jazz Age [Curious Case of Benjamin Button]

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1922. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine-. True First Printing, with September, 1922 on the copyright page and "an" instead of "and" on p. 232, one of only 8000 copies printed. Publisher's dark blue-green linen-like cloth, the upper cover lettered in blind, the spine stamped in gold, the fore-edge untrimmed; without the very scarce dust jacket. About Fine, clean, straight and tight, the spine gilt undiminished. Signature on the front fly leaf, in an elegrant script, of Alice Emily Gennett, St. Louis, May 2, 1923. Housed in a high-quality copy of the original dust jacket from Mark Terry's Facsimile Dust Jacket Printshop, in San Francisco. Bruccoli A9.I.a. Fitzgerald divided the eleven stories in this, his second collection (following Flappers and Philosophers, of 1920), into three parts according to subect and, perhaps, intention. The first, 'My Last Flappers,' contains 'The Jelly Bean,' written shorly after 'This Side of Paradise,' Fitzgerald's first novel, published in 1920. 'Fantasies,' the collection's middle part, contains those stories Fitzgerald considered to have been written in his 'second manner,' including 'The Diamond as Big as the Ritz' and 'Tarquin of Cheapside,' composed almost six years before being added to this collection, during the author's undergraduate days at Princeton. The final part, 'Unclassified Masterpieces,' includes 'Jemina,' also written at Princeton. Perhaps the collection's best-known story, the recently filmed 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,' was inspired by Twain's lament that the best of life came at the beginning, and the worst at the end. Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.& & &

        Winter Village of the Minatarres. [Tab. 26]

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922]. Aquatint engraving by L. Weber after Bodmer. 17 5/8 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 highly atmospheric scene executed by Bodmer during the winter of 1833-1834 when the travellers stayed at Fort Clark on the banks of the upper reaches of Missouri River. In November 1833 Prince Maximilian and Bodmer made a nine-hour trek from the Fort to one of the Hidatsa winter villages (probably Eláh-sa) and stayed for a couple of days. Composed of about eighty households closely packed amidst the sheltering timber the village was the largest of the Hidatsa settlements on the Knife River. Here a number of figures are gathered in the foreground, wrapped in their buffalo robes to watch a pair of young men keep warm by playing the hoop and pole game that was one of the most common and widespread of all North American Indian games. 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. They arrived in Boston in July 1832, traveled on to Philadelphia, where they stayed with Napoleon Bonaparte's elder brother Joseph. From here they headed west across Pennsylvania across the Alleghenies to Pittsburgh and the Ohio country, visiting all the important German settlements en route. Their most important stop on their route west was at the utopian colony of New Harmony in Indiana. The Prince spent five months there in the company of some of the country's leading scientific men, and studying all the relevant literature on backcountry America. On 24 March 1833 the party reached St. Louis, Missouri, and the start of the journey into Indian country. David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 1985, p.18.

"It having been found impossible to reconcile the conflicting boundary claims of China and Tibet at the tripartite conference held in India in 1914, the Tibetan question dragged on unsettled through the years of the Great War, when no one had the leisure to attend to Tibetan affairs. Then, shortly before the termination of the Great War, came the resumption of active hostilities on the Sino-Tibetan frontier, and the restoration of peace on the border at the end of 1918." - from the Preface.; 8vo .

        Herode [Salome: drame en un acte]

      Paris, c. 1922. Original illustration in red and black ink and pencil on paper. 11 7/8 by 9 1/2 in. This drawing first appeared in Fifty Drawings by Alastair, published by Knopf in 1925, and a similar version was used in the Paris edition of Wilde's text published the same year. Beardsley's popularity and sudden death created opportunities for other artists of the Decadent movement, such as Alastair and Erté. This drawing exhibits the understated menace of Beardsley, but with an eye toward texture. The detail in Herod's elaborate robe, and the plant and vase to his left exhibit a distinctly Asian aesthetic. Some glue residue on verso, else a very fine drawing by one of the most popular book illustrators of the first half of the twentieth century.

        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.

        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.

        THE DOVER PATROL

      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.

        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.
