      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company (Printed at the Riverside Press), 1922. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. Olcott, Charles S.; Homes, Burton. No. 36 of 750 copies, set complete, 8vo - over 7.75" to 9.75" tall, approx. 6,400 pp. to the set. The collected works of Lafcadio Hearn, including "Creole Sketches", published in this set for the first time. Published posthumously, it includes, in Volume I, both a tipped-in leaf of Hearn's writing, in a lovely, flowing hand, describing crowds moving along a foot-path "You can proceed even quickly by moving with either stream; but you cannot proceed against it; - only an insane or drunken person is likely to attempt such a thing"; there is also inserted into Volume I the signature of Setsuko Koizumi (Mrs. Hearn), in Japanese, with her chop. ***ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Patrick Lafcadio Hearn (1850-1904) had in his family background blood both Greek and Arab, Irish and Gypsy. Born in Greece, raised in Ireland, at the age of 19 he emigrated to the United States spending time in Cincinnati and New Orleans, whence sprang the Creole Sketches. He eventually travelled for work (newspaper reporting) to the West Indies and thence to Japan, where he found his true home. He married into a Samurai family to Setsuko Koizumi and had four children, fully immersing himself into the Japanese culture. Largely unknown to westeners at the time, his writings on the customs, religions and literature of Japan were avidly read; although Hearn would come to condenm the Westernization of Japan, he accepted its inevitability, and attepted to describe the county even as it was changing. ***DESCRIPTION: Sixteen volumes (complete), bound in half-leather over tan cloth boards, front and back covers without ornamentation, spine with gilt lettering and the small decoration of a crane, all outlined with a gilt rectangle, top edges gilt, fore- and bottom edges rough-cut, grey and white mottled paper endpapers, bookplate of Andrew F. Burke (as noted below) on the front pastedown of each volume, each volume has a tipped-in full-colour illustration as a frontispiece with lettered tissue-guard, title pages in red and black, publisher's device on title pages, limitation statement on the copyright page with this set being no. 36 of 750, additional photographs and illustrations throughout, both black-and-white and colour (including several of Mr. Hearn's family), each with its lettered tissue-guard, original ribbon markers; octavo size (just over 8.5" tall), pagination for each volume between 313 and 512 pp., the total for the set approximately 6,400 pp. ***CONDITION: The set could almost be called fine; the bindings are clean and almost without wear, the corners are straight and unrubbed, text blocks are strong and square, the hinges solid, the interiors are clean and bright, and other than the bookplates of Mr. Burke are free of prior owner markings. The spines are sunned and there is some offsetting to the endpapers from the turn-ins, else fine. ***CITATIONS: BAL no. 7977, Perkins pp. 81-84. ***PROVENANCE: From the library of, and with the Ex-Libris bookplates of, Andrew F. Burke, noted San Francisco attorney; his extensive library was dispersed at sale in 2017, the books coming from the home in Pacific Heights where Mr. Burke and his family lived for 90 years. ***POSTAGE: Due to the weight of this set, please note that additional postage will apply, please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        The Snakes of the Philippine Islands

      Manila: Bureau of Printing, 1922. First edition.. Light tanning to the title page, a bright and clean copy in near fine condition in a very attractive leather binding.. Pp. 312; 37 full page plates (black-and-white photos, line-drawings and halftones), 32 text-figures (line-drawings). Recent one-half black morocco leather, spine with five raised bands set off by gilt panel lines, over green marbled boards with matching marbled endpapers, lg 8vo. This is the very rare first printing of this important monograph on the snakes of the Philippines. The scarcity of the work is due to its small print run and its exposure to the tropical climate of Manila where it was published. The author spent many months in the Philippines studying more than 3000 snakes stored in the Bureau of Science and other local institutions. Due to exhaustive nature of Taylor's studies, this monograph still stands as a major reference source 95 years after its publication. No ownership marks and few signs of use.

        NOVA PANTOLOGIJA PELENGIRIKE. [Neue pelengyrische Panthologie]

      VINAVER Stanislav: NOVA PANTOLOGIJA PELENGIRIKE. [Neue pelengyrische Panthologie]. Beograd: Izdanje »Biblioteke Misao« 1922. Erstausgabe dieser Sammlung geistreicher Parodien aus der Feder des serbischen Autors, Übersetzers (Poe, Rabelais) und Literaturkritikers Stanislav Vinaver (1891-1955). Vinaver verfasste u.a. ein »Manifest des Expressionismus« und lieferte Beiträge für die Zeitschriften Zenit (Nrn. 1-6) und Putevi (Nrn. 1-2). Ein erster Band ähnlicher Texte war bereits im Jahr 1920 unter dem Titel Pantologija. Novije srprske pelengirike im Belgrader Vlg. »Napredak« erschienen. - Ausgehend vom Kunstwort »pelengirike« (pelen = Wermut) im Titel verballhornt Vinaver hier die vom einflußreichen Literaturkritiker Bogdan Popović im Jahr 1911 hg. Anthologie neuer serbischer Lyrik. Der modernistisch orientierte Vinaver, seit einem Aufenthalt in Petrograd (1917-19) mit Aleksandr Blok und dem russischen Symbolismus bekannt, lehnte das in Popović's Anthologie vertretene traditionelle Literaturverständnis ab und setzte stattdessen auf die Avantgarde, zu deren markantesten Belgrader Vertretern er zählte. Umschlag an den Ecken und Kanten stellenweise geringfügig bestoßen und mit Knickfalten, Rücken leicht gebräunt, sonst wohl erhaltenes Exemplar dieser seltenen Broschur mit einer kongenialen Umschlagzeichnung nach dem Motto: »Im Witz liegt der Schrecken.«. Vloemans 129, 226; Markić, Zenitizam, 257; Siegel, Serbische Avantgarde, 384f.

        Writ on Cold Slate. 'Only this age that loudly boasts Reform, hath set its seal of vengeance 'gainst the mind, decreeing nought in prison shall be writ, save on cold slate, and swiftly washed away.'

      London The Dreadnought Publishers 1922 - First and only edition, 47, (1) pp., text browned, publisher's printed wrappers, advert on rear panel for the author's 'Soviet Russia, As I Saw It', light browning to spine, otherwise very good. A scarce collection of poems written by Pankhurst during one of her numerous prison; no other copy shown in auction records in the last 40 years. COPAC lists five copies. Born in Old Trafford in 1882, Sylvia Pankhurst was influenced in her youth by the political activism of her parents, Emmeline and Richard Marsden Pankhurst, who were members of the Fabian Society and the Independent Labour Party and helped establish the Women's Franchise League. Wishing to become an artist, she attended Manchester Art School and, from 1904, Chelsea's Royal College of Art. Her work, which combined socialist realism and Pre-Raphaelite allegory, was influenced by her art teacher, Walter Crane. Following Pankhurst's arrival in London, her parents' friend, Keir Hardie, became an important figure in her life. On his return from visiting India in 1909, he discussed with her his findings and opinions. Increasingly involved with the Women's Social and Political Union, Pankhurst devoted her energies from 1906 onward to fighting for women's suffrage, becoming known for her militancy. Using journalism to fund her activism, she wrote a series of articles on women's labour for the WSPU newspaper, Votes for Women, visited America on a lecture tour, and in 1911 published The Suffragette on the movement's history. A committed socialist, Pankhurst became involved with working women in London's East End, and supported George Lansbury, M.P. when he stood for re-election in Bromley-by-Bow on a women's suffrage ticket. In 1913 she established the militant East London Federation of Suffragettes, which supported trade union struggles including the Dublin lock-out. Pankhurst founded the Woman's Dreadnought in 1914, later renamed the Workers' Dreadnought, through which she came into contact with Rajani Palme Dutt, who contributed articles to the paper from 1917 until her split with the Communist Party in 1921. During the First World War she led anti-war campaigns, continued her social welfare work, and began to support revolutionary movements. She met Lenin after the war and, in 1920, helped form the British Communist Party from which she was later expelled. In 1924 she moved to Red Cottage in Woodford Green, where she was joined by Silvio Erasmus Corio, an Italian exile who had briefly converted to Islam in the early 1920s. At this time she wrote India and the Earthly Paradise, a 'romantic Communist' contribution to Indian nationalism which 'may have been the last result of her contacts with fringe elements of that movement' and was published in Bombay in 1926. She gave birth to her only child, Richard Keir Pethick, in 1927 at the age of 45 and because she refused to marry the father her mother disowned her. In the 1930s Sylvia Pankhurst committed herself to promoting peace, fighting fascism, assisting Jewish refugees and supporting Spanish republicans. Ethiopian independence became a consuming concern following the Italian invasion. In 1935 she established the journal New Times and Ethiopian News, which publicised and supported Haile Selassie's anti-colonial campaign. With her son, Pankhurst went to live in Ethiopia in 1956 and died in Addis Ababa in 1960. Prison. On October 23rd, 1906, a group of suffragettes led by Mrs Pankhurst herself infiltrated into the lobby of the House of Commons and started a protest meeting. They were bundled out into the street by policemen, there was what Sylvia Pankhurst called 'a scrimmage' and ten of the women were arrested. When they came up in Cannon Street police court the next day, the magistrate refused to listen to them and peremptorily ordered them to be bound over to be of good behaviour for six months or go to prison for six weeks. They protested and demanded the right to be heard in their own defence but the magistrate had them remo [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Garland

      London: Gyldenal, 1922. First English Language Edition. Hardcover. This is an exceptional copy of the first English edition of Sigrid Undset's The Garland, the first volume in her Kristin Lavransdatter trilogy, which was the basis for her being awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1928. This copy is scarce thus, near fine in a very good minus dust jacket. The dark red cloth binding, printed gilt on the spine and blind stamped with title and author on the front cover, is square, clean, bright, and tight. We note only light wear to extremities and a small, unobtrusive indentation to the center of the blank rear cover. The contents are notably bright with no spotting and surprisingly clean page edges. The sole previous ownership mark is an inked gift inscription and “1961” date on the front free endpaper. Differential toning to the endpapers corresponds to the dust jacket flaps and confirms what the excellent binding already testifies – that this copy has spent life jacketed. The dust jacket is strikingly bright, with no discernible fading to the vivid cover art and almost no spine toning. We note small losses to the spine ends and corners, as well as a small loss at the lower rear hinge and short closed tears to the bottom edge of the rear face. The dust jacket is protected beneath a removable, archival quality clear cover. Sigrid Undset (1882-1949) was a Norwegian writer and recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature. Her father, a Norwegian archaeologist, died when Undset was 11, causing her to forego a university edition and take a job as a secretary with an engineering company. It was while working in this position that she began to write, published her first work, and gained notoriety as a writer, enabling her to quit office work and live on her income as a writer. While her novels with contemporary female protagonists in contemporary setting earned her initial reputation, The Nobel Prize in Literature 1928 was awarded to Sigrid Undset "principally for her powerful descriptions of Northern life during the Middle Ages". Undset drew on the histories, legends, and folklore passed to her from her father to write her Kristin Lavransdatter trilogy (1920-1922) detailing the life of the title character, a woman in Medieval Norway. The novels were praised for their accuracy and vivid prose and were the subject of some controversy for their frank depiction of female sexuality, some scenes of which were expurgated from this first translation.

        Schnackenberg: Kostüme / Plakate und Dekorationen. Dreiundvierzig Tafeln.

      Munich: Musarion Verlag, 1922. Second edition. Hardcover. Cloth. Paper pastedown on boards.. Very Good. Folio, 33.5 by 26 cm. 10 pp., 43 richly colored plates of theatrical posters created by Walter Schnackenberg (1880-1961), who was a Munich-based artist known especially for his theater-related artwork. Heavily influenced by Toulouse-Lautrec, this shows abundantly clearly in his poster art, with its free lines, its brash approach to perspective, its capturing of movement, its embrace of Orientalism and obviously, its subject matter and the type of show women it highlighted. Yet never do the posters come off as throwbacks to the late 19th century; rather, they seem to capture superbly the free-wheeling, daring spirit that flourished in Weimar Germany, especially in its entertainments, and the artwork still comes off as fresh and modern. Schnackenberg's involvement with the theater went beyond the production of posters to include set and costume design. The posters that form this compilation include ones for dance, cabaret and "legitimate" theater, and it is obvious how much in demand Schackenberg must have been in the Bavarian capital of the day. Other than twelve of the plates which are in black and white, a few of which are photo images, the color is brilliant, the result of a pochoir process used, and in a few instances, there is an application of gold. Rebacked inobtrusively with cloth, with original pictorial pastedowns on boards retained. Some light scuffing. Reinforcement to gutters. Toning to the plates.

        The Beautiful and Damned

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1922. 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." Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves.

        The Worst Journey in the World.

      Constable & Company, London 1922 - First edition of this classic memoir of the 1910-1913 British Antarctic Expedition. Octavo, two volumes, original half white cloth, gray paper boards. Inscribed by Apsley Cherry-Garrard in each each volume. First editions signed and inscribed are of exceptional rarity. Apsley Cherry-Garrard served as assistant zoologist on Robert Scott's tragic 1910-12 expedition to Antarctica. Dr. Wilson chose Bowers and Cherry-Garrard as his companions for a winter journey in 1911 to Cape Crozier to collect Emperor Penguin eggs. "On their return five weeks later Scott described their journey as 'the hardest that has ever been made'--a phrase which later suggested to Cherry-Garrard the title of his narrative of the fortunes of the whole expedition: The Worst Journey in the World" (DNB). When at the base, Cherry-Garrard edited the camp newspaper, South Polar Times. The following summer he accompanied Scott's polar party as far as the summit of the Beardmore Glacier, helping to establish supply and fuel depots. Scott arrived at the Pole only to find that a Norwegian team had beaten him there by a month. On the return journey, plagued by blizzards and illness, the sledge party perished near One Ton Depot, where their bodies and diaries were found eight months later by a search party that included Cherry-Garrard. "A very literate, detailed account of the expedition. one of the classics of Antarctic literature" (Conrad, 173). "The best written and most enduring account of exploits in the Antarctic" (Taurus 84). Illustrated with sketches made by Edward Wilson, the science officer of the expedition, who died returning from the pole with Scott; with photographs by expedition members Debenham and Wright; and with five maps (four folding). Rare first issue, in original half white cloth and paper-covered boards. Cherry-Garrard "insisted upon that white half-binding, since he wanted his book to look as handsome and as 'Polar' as possible. Only relatively few copies of the first edition were actually bound up. A second issue, bound in durable blue cloth, rapidly made its way onto the market" (Taurus 84). A drama documentary, also entitled The Worst Journey In The World, written by and starring Mark Gatiss, was broadcast on BBC Four in April 2007. It was also adapted by Stef Penney for the BBC as a two-part radio drama directed by Kate McAll in 2008. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      Doubleday, Page and Co. Garden City, New York 1922 - First Edition stated.

Uncommon early Ferber collection to be found in fragile dustjacket.

        Crime Scene Photographs]: Exhibit Photographs from the Halls-Mills Murder Trial

      Van Derveer Photo, [New Brunswick] 1922 - 10 different large silver gelatin photographs mounted on stiff card stock. Sepia-toned images measuring 15.75" x 12.75" on slightly larger mounts for exhibition. Several have handwritten notes paper-clipped to the mount describing what is in the photo. A little rounding on the corners of the mounts, paperclips a little oxidized but not substantially affecting the images, just about fine, the images clear and deep. Reputedly used as state's exhibits at the infamous Hall-Mills Murder Trial. None of the exhibit photos are grisly, they mostly refer to the geography of the case: the attached notes read: "Crab apple tree where bodies were found"; "DeRussey's Lane Franklin Approach to the Murder Scene"; "Rev. Hall's study in New Brunswick Church. An admirer of 'T.R.' Hall was Scoutmaster of Troop No. 1"; "Trysting place in New Brunswick public park - off Eaton Ave. where the Rev. Hall & Mrs. Mills met"; and so forth.A notorious and famous case that electrified the nation and especially New Jersey (until it was eclipsed a decade later by the kidnapping of the Lindbergh baby). It involved the seemingly ritualistic murder in 1922 of the New Brunswick, New Jersey Episcopal Rev. Edward Hall and his mistress, Mrs. Eleanor Mills, who sang in the choir of the church, on an isolated country road where they would apparently tryst. The bodies were discovered both shot in the head, laid side-by-side with the choir singer's throat cut and her tongue cut out as well, with ripped-up love letters scattered about. The trial for murder of Hall's wife and her eccentric brothers that ensued was covered in the most lurid and sensationalistic manner possible and formed the basis for a fascinating book by attorney and activist William Kunstler, The Hall-Mills Murder Case: The Minister and the Choir Singer, as well as several mystery novels and films. Reportedly, one of Mrs. Hall's brothers, Willie Stevens, was the model for the character of the loony brother, "Teddy Roosevelt" Brewster, in the play and movie Arsenic and Old Lace. The New York Times devoted more space to the case than any previous trial in American history. The star witness, Jane Gibson, a.k.a. "The Pig Woman," who lived on a pig farm near the isolated murder scene supposedly witnessed the crime when she went on her mule to investigate her dog's insistent barking, but her testimony was erratic, and she gave some of her testimony from a hospitable gurney. Despite some reasonably creditable evidence of their guilt, Mrs. Hall and her brothers were acquitted.One of the images presented here (captioned "Crab apple tree where bodies were found") is used as an illustration in the Kuntsler book. Provenance on request and accompanied by a supplied second edition of book.

        The Principle of Relativity with applications to Physical Science.

      Cambridge: University Press. 1922. 8vo. Original blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine; pp. xii + 190, diagrams to text; minimal rubbing to head and foot of spine, near fine. Provenance: ffep with pencil signature of the author's daughter Jessie Whitehead, herself well-known as a mountaineer, Arabist and pipe-smoking eccentric. First edition. Whitehead's critique of Einstein is an attempt to harmonise the theory of relativity with common sense. He makes some important points about the problems of measurements raised by Einstein's theory. These lead, most importantly, to Whitehead's own theory of gravitation, an alternative hypothesis in which the geometric structure of the universe is based on fixed a priori spatio-temporal relationships. Whitehead's theory was considered a genuine rival to general relativity until the 1970s, when empirical observations proved it to be impossible in practice.

        Voyages of Doctor Dolittle, The

      New York: Fredk. A. Stokes Co., 1922. The Second Doctor Dolittle Book The Second Book to Win the Prestigious Newbery Medal In the Original Color Pictorial Dust Jacket LOFTING, Hugh. The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle. Illustrated by the Author. New York: Fredk. A. Stokes Co., 1922.

[xiv], 364 pp. Inserted color frontispiece with original 'explanatory' printed tissue-guard, one inserted color plate facing page 162, and eighteen full-page line illustrations, all by Hugh Lofting. Very slight stain in gutter of pp. 146/147 due to a small pressed leaf. Publisher's gray cloth, front cover decorated and lettered in black and with a duplicate of the color frontispiece "The Posipetal Picture-History of King Jong Thinkalot" laid on. Spine lettered in black, three-color pictorial end-papers, top edge stained blue. In the exceptionally scarce color printed pictorial dust jacket. One small chip at top of jacket spine and another one inch chip at the bottom of the lower jacket panel. A very fine copy in an almost fine and untouched dust jacket. Very scarce in dust jacket. Hugh John Lofting (14 January 1886 - 26 September 1947) was a British author, trained as a civil engineer, who created the character of Doctor Dolittle, one of the classics of children's literature. He traveled widely as a civil engineer, before enlisting in the Irish Guards regiment of the British Army to serve in the First World War. Not wishing to write to his children about the brutality of the war, he wrote imaginative letters which later became the foundation of the successful Doctor Dolittle novels for children. Hugh Lofting's character of Doctor John Dolittle, was an English physician from Puddleby-on-the-Marsh in the West Country - who could speak to animals. The character first saw light in the author's illustrated letters to children, written from the trenches during the War of 1914 to 1918, when actual news, he later said, was either too horrible or too dull. The stories are set in early Victorian England in the 1820s-1840s (The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle gives a date of 1839). The Story of Doctor Dolittle: Being the History of His Peculiar Life at Home and Astonishing Adventures in Foreign Parts Never Before Printed (1920) began the series and won the Lewis Carroll Shelf Award in 1958. The sequel The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle (1922) won Lofting the prestigious Newbery Medal. Eight more books followed, and after Lofting's death two more volumes appeared, composed of short unpublished pieces. The internal chronology of the books is somewhat different from the publishing order. The first book is followed by Doctor Dolittle's Post Office (1923), Doctor Dolittle's Circus (1924) and Doctor Dolittle's Caravan (1926). Only then follows the second book, The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle (1922), continued by Doctor Dolittle's Zoo (1925). After that, the publishing order is restored; Doctor Dolittle's Garden (1927) is followed by Doctor Dolittle in the Moon (1928) and Doctor Dolittle's Return (1933), ending with Doctor Dolittle and the Secret Lake (1948). The series has been adapted for film and television many times, for stage twice, and for radio too. Our great friend of nearly fifty years, Leslie Bricusse wrote the song "Talk to the Animals" for which he won the Oscar for 'Best original Song' at the 1968 academy awards. "If we could talk to the animals, learn all their languages, Maybe take an animal degree, We'd study elephant and eagle, buffalo and beagle, Alligator, guinea pig, and flea!"
