        The Innocents Abroad or The New Pilgrim's Progress (The Writings Of Mark Twain)

      New York: Gabriel Wells, 1922. Definitive Edition. These two volumes of the first two volumes of the 37 volume set of the Definitive Edition of The Writings of Mark Twain are in very near fine condition in 3/4 dark brown leather and brown cloth covered boards with four raised bands on the spines with gilt text and tool work in the compartments. The leather on the boards is outlined with gilt borders. In addition to making minor repairs to the leather and cloth edges a professional binder reinforced the joints on both volumes with Japanese tissue colored perfectly to match the color of the leather on the spines. The leather at the heads of the spines is worn down to the edge of the text blocks; and, a small section of the title to volume I has been replaced and stamped in gilt. Both volumes are contained within a handsome, cloth lined and leather covered slip case. Volume I is signed by the author using both his real name and his nom de plume. The facing page states that the page was signed by Mark Twain in 1906 in anticipation of the publication of this definitive collection. Additionally, volume I is identified as being part of set number 30 of only 1,024 sets printed. Volume I contains 311 pages of text and is illustrated with a frontispiece portrait of Twain and four engravings with titled tissue guards. Volume II contains 409 pages of text and is illustrated with a frontispiece engraving and four other engraved plates with titled tissue guards. Neither volume contains any prior ownership names, markings, book plates or marginalia. (BAL, 3691)

        The Novels.

      London: J. M. Dent & Sons Ltd,, 1922. With illustrations by Charles E. Brock. 6 volumes, octavo (182 x 118 mm). Recent blue half morocco by Bayntun-Riviere, blue cloth sides, titles and decorations to spines gilt in compartments, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. Colour frontispiece with tissue-guards to each volume, title pages printed in blue and red, and 90 colour plates. Bookplate to front pastedowns. Spines very faintly faded; an excellent, bright set. An attractively bound set of the charmingly illustrated novels, first published with Brock's illustrations between 1907 and 1909. C. E. Brock (1870–1938) first appeared as an illustrator of Jane Austen for Macmillan's 1895-7 series, though he illustrated only Pride and Prejudice, with Hugh Thomson illustrating the other five titles. That series appeared in black and white, which better suited Thomson's skilful use of line. A decade later J. M. Dent, realising Brock's potential as a colourist, commissioned him to redo the Pride and Prejudice suite in colour, and also to create colour illustrations for the other five Austen titles. The colourful costumes and interior decor depicted here are reputedly accurate to the Regency period, as Charles Brock and his brother Henry collected antique furniture and clothing so that their friends and relations could model for the artists in their Cambridge studio.

      London, New York, Toronto and Melbourne: Cassell and Company, Ltd, [1922].. Octavo, pp. [1-8] 1-307 [308] [309-310: blank] [note: last leaf is a blank], original green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in black. First edition. The contents of the Cassell edition differ from those in American edition published by Harper in 1922. The Cassell edition has the eight tales featuring Horne Fisher and the four-part "The Trees of Pride," plus three stories not in the Harper edition; "The Garden of Smoke," "The Five of Swords" and "The Tower of Treason." "The Garden of Smoke" is a murder mystery about roses and drugs. As is typical with Chesterton, it's also about the flimsiness of appearances and the paradox that the only really solid things are those that are unseen. A whiff of fantasy hangs over the story with its premise of a special, very rare kind of opium so good that it not only supplies the needed inspiration for "a famous lady novelist and fashionable poet," but the motivation for a murder. As is also typical with Chesterton, the male characters here and in the following story move about (deliberately or helplessly) on a plane of irony, while the heroine moves about on a plane of romance. "The Trees of Pride" is longer, more ambitious and more fantastic, dealing with the legend and superstitions surrounding a stand of peacock trees, a flamboyant Asian/African species that has been imported to a seaside town in Cornwall. The locals believe them responsible for a spate of recent deaths and disappearances in the town and want to cut them down. The owner of the estate, one of those "advanced" and "enlightened" specimens of modernity that Chesterton loves to attack, refuses. The arrival of an American critic and the local poet he has discovered provide the catalyst for what follows: the disappearance and presumed death of the estate owner after he announces angrily that he is going to spend the night in the grove of demon trees to dispel the local superstitions. The mystery is resolved with a kind of triple reverse as the supernatural gives way to the criminal, which gives way to the humorous, which gives way, once again, to the supernatural. The story has something of the feeling of Chesterton's fantasy masterpiece, THE MAN WHO WAS THURSDAY, as the reader falls through one trap door after another. The most explicit serious theme here is that elites should not be quick to dismiss a thing just because it is held true by the masses. The background legend from North Africa about the carnivorous peacock trees constitutes a very attractive and potently weird storyette; this and the ambiguity surrounding them in modern Cornwall allow for this story to be classified as fantastic. "The Five of Spades" is a murder mystery set in France amid the intersecting worlds of dueling and business. It blends cleverness (in its detection), idealism (in its romance), urbanity (in its cultural insights) and an abiding sense of mystery (in both the macrocosm of its plot and the microcosm of its aphorisms) as one seeming truth gives way, like a discarded mask, to another, and another, and so on: all of it adding up that characteristic Chestertonian bravura whose exuberant levity is exactly balanced by its moral gravity. The same could be said of "The Tower of Treason" (or, indeed, to one degree or another, of everything else that the author wrote), which moves the setting from the bright plains of France to the dark mountains of an unspecified Balkan country, from the busy doings of the secular to the intricate broodings of the monastic. The story involves diamonds and history, treason and sacrifice, each one indestructible, disappearing only to come back in faint echoes or brilliant flashes. This, the final story of the collection, closes it out on a more overtly religious note - or chord - reminding us that, at the very heart of Christianity and shot through it, is that Chestertonian trademark, paradox, the paradox of sacrifice, divine and human, which wears a mask of loss only to stand revealed in the final act as ultimate gain. The last paragraph, with its metaphorical equation of a diamond, a bullet, the truth, the soul and a star, is as dazzling and conclusive as a Euclidean proof. Beyond this pervasive sense of religious mysteriy, neither of the stories have any fantastic or supernatural content. Bleiler (1948), p. 77. Not in Bleiler (1978) or Reginald (1979; 1992). Barzun and Taylor, A Catalogue of Crime 2407. Queen, The Detective Short Story, p. 21. Hubin (1994), p. 159. A nearly fine copy. A sharp copy of a book which does not age gracefully, (#110049)

        Lettre autographe signée (1956) à François Mauriac.

      - Robbe-Grillet (Alain) (1922-2008) Écrivain et cinéaste français. Chef de file du "Nouveau Roman". Lettre autographe signée, Paris, 10 septembre 1956, à François Mauriac, 6 pages in-4. Importante et exceptionnelle lettre ouverte de Robbe Grillet en réponse à un article de François Mauriac paru dans Le Figaro Littéraire du 28 juillet 1956, « La technique du cageot ». « Au nom de quoi a-t-on décidé que le roman, le roman seul, doit ne relever que de l’inconscience, pour ne pas dire de la bêtise ou de la folie ? Même si Proust ne s’était préoccupé d’aucune règle dans son écriture (ce dont je doute fort, quant à moi), serait-ce une raison pour qu’il en soit toujours ainsi, nécessairement, pour tous les « vrais » romanciers des temps futurs ? » « Monsieur, Depuis que j’ai eu connaissance de votre article, sur la « technique du cageot », j’ai l’intention de vous écrire. Si j’ai tant tardé à le faire, c’est seulement pour apporter plus de réflexion à cette réponse, et cela particulièrement sur trois points : vous n’aimez pas qu’un romancier ait des théories concernant le roman, vous pensez que le cageot est aussi un état d’âme, enfin vous me soupçonnez de n’avoir pas assez d’estime pour mes illustres prédécesseurs, Dostoïevski, Balzac, etc Mais commençons par le commencement. C’est d’abord du plaisir, bien entendu, que j’ai ressenti à la lecture de cet article : sa place, ses dimensions, votre signature, tout cela me flattait beaucoup. Malheureusement je ne vous ai pas convaincu - pas du tout, même, semble t-il. Or, si je ne suis pas insensible au modeste plaisir de faire parler de mes écrits, c’est convaincre (vous convaincre) que précisément je souhaitais le plus. Les choses que j’ai dites me paraissaient - me paraissent encore - simples, raisonnables, évidentes même. Il faut croire que je les ai fort mal exprimées, pour n’avoir abouti qu’à votre agacement. Je me suis bien mal exprimé, en particulier si vous concluez que j’ai du « mépris » pour Dostoïevski, Balzac, etc Non ! Cent fois non ! Je n’ai pas de mépris pour eux, ni pour leurs livres, ni pour les personnages qui s’y trouvent, ni pour aucune des techniques romanesques qu’ils ont illustrées. J’ai écrit seulement (après Nathalie Sarraute et quelques autres) que ces techniques sont périmées - mais périmées aujourd’hui - et que l’on ne peut accorder la moindre importance aux romans qui prétendent utiliser maintenant l’un de ces techniques. Avons-nous, vous Monsieur, ou Le Corbusier, ou moi, du mépris pour le style ogival, lorsque nous pensons qu’il est impossible de construire en 1956 une cathédrale gothique ? Et nous savons bien, par surcroit, que cela n’implique aucune échelle de valeurs inavouée entre l’architecture du XIVe siècle et celle d’un XXe siècle qui peut-être se cherche encore. Nous estimons seulement qu’il vaut mieux un essai malheureux d’architecture contemporaine qu’une commode copie d’ancien. « Les procédés ne deviennent procédés » écrivez-vous, « que lorsque ce sont les autres qui en usent ». Nous sommes donc là-dessus du même avis : deviennent des procédés lorsque les autres essaient d’en user après coup, lorsqu’il est trop tard, lorsque la technique imitée a perdu tout contenu vivant, lorsqu’elle n’est plus qu’une forme pétrifiée, ou plus rien de vivant ne peut trouver son expression Mais la technique de Balzac était bel et bien vivante en 1840, et en 1870 celle de Dostoïevski. Ai-je tort de les aimer dans l’histoire ? Vous savez bien que c’est la seule façon de les aimer vraiment. Nous devons plutôt nous méfier des lecteurs intrépides qui dévorent avec délices Le Rouge et le Noir (après l’avoir découvert au cinéma), tout en continuant d’ignorer Faulkner, Kafka et Joyce, oui bien disant « n’y rien comprendre ». La consommation massive qui se fait aujourd’hui des chefs-d’oeuvre du passé n’est pas la preuve de leur « éternelle jeunesse ». Mais elle prouve, une fois de plus, qu’il est facile d’avaler sans danger une littérature ancienne (ou t

      Paris: Shakespeare and Company,, 1922. Small quarto. Original blue wrappers, titles to cover in white. An unusually bright and fresh copy, with slight marks to spine panel and rear wrapper, tiny closed tear to wrappers at foot of spine but entirely sound, a little rubbing to tips of wrappers and spine, light crease to front wrapper and first few pages. A beautiful, unopened copy of this notoriously vulnerable production, unsophisticated and unusually bright and fresh. First edition, first printing, number 724 of 750 copies printed on vergé à barbes stock, from a total edition of 1,000 copies. Ulysses was published in imitation of the traditional three-tiered French format aimed at both connoisseurs and readers: 100 copies were printed on Dutch handmade paper and signed by Joyce; 150 large paper copies were printed on heavier vergé d'Arches, and the remaining 750 copies formed this slightly smaller format trade issue. Laid-in is a typed note signed from literary editor Burton Rascoe, on New York Herald Tribune headed paper and dated 10 October 1922, to Russell Loines, the American literary patron: "Lewis Galantière, in Paris, has sent to me a copy of 'Ulysses' to be forwarded to you. There is danger in sending it through the mails ... Please direct me". Galantière "represented the International Chamber of Commerce in Paris from 1920 till 1927, where his literary interests brought him into contact with a wide array of expatriate writers".

Ottima copia in barbe. Prima edizione, rara, di questo romanzo parolibero marinettiano. Le piacentine "Edizioni futuriste" Porta, dirette da Marinetti e da Mario Carli, esordirono con Trillirì dello stesso Carli nel medesimo 1921, per poi pubblicare soltanto più questo titolo di Marinetti. Salaris, p. 48. Dizionario del Futurismo, p. 704: "Nel 1921 Marinetti lancia il manifesto Il Tattilismo che plaude alla realizzazione d'una nuova forma d'arte-vita che permetta di migliorare i rapporti tra gli individui e favorisca la comuicazione del pensiero attraverso il tatto. In questa fase il futurismo s'avvia a percorrere una crisi così profonda da sembrar prossimo alla disgregazione totale. Le opere che maggiormente rispettano questa temperie, ma anche lo stato di Marinetti in tali frangenti, sono Il tamburo di fuoco (Milano, 1922), e il romanzo allegorico Gli indomabili (Piacenza, 1922.)".

        [FIRST EXHIBITION OF THE 16 ART GROUP] Vystavka kartin shestnadtsati khudozhnikov: Catalogue [i e Art Exhibition of 16 Artists: Catalogue]

      Petrograd: Pechatnyi dvor, 1922. 12 pp. 15x11 cm. Issued without wrappers. With pencil markings on the first and last pages, Soviet bookshop's stamps on the p.12. Otherwise near fine. Extremely rare ephemera. One of 1000 copies. This art show opened in Petrograd (St. Petersburg) with 180 works by art group called «Sixteen» (16) consisted of 16 artists: Belkin, Bobrovsky, Bobyshev, Brodsky, Voinov, Il'in, Kudriavtsev, Lakhovsky, Naumov, Okolovich, Rudnev, Rylov, Savinov, Sychiov, Feshin, Shillingovsky. Interesting that mostly all of them had address printed next to their names in the catalogue. This is a great historical evidence of St. Petersburg-Petrograd art exhibitions traditionally performed not only cultural and educational function, but also were the place where the buyer got acquainted with new works and agreed on the acquisition of paintings. Acting in Petrograd, the artists' societies were essentially exhibition associations with a more or less constant circle of exhibitors. Another strange thing about this catalogue is a lack of uniformity, almost like every artist provided whatever information he wanted to (dates, or techniques, or current owner, or name of the series). Two artists didn't even exhibit with a note «works were not delivered for reasons beyond artist's control». A very curious little catalogue as an evidence of tough and changing times for art (e.g., the last year of famous Peredvizniki's group) in a new Russia after the revolution and war. Art exhibitions of Petrograd during the post-revolutionary period reflected changes in society and art, attempts of the authorities to include fine art in the system of state relations, accompanied by a struggle of opinions and the presence of polar views on the main issues of cultural policy.

        Das Graphische Werk. Introduction text by Arthur Roessler.

      Vienna: Rikola Verlag, 1922 - Each of the prints presented in a dark grey stained frame with conservation mount and glass. 4 drypoint etchings on heavy rough yellowish etching paper, 2 drypoint etchings on Massimilianico Bütten paper and 2 crayon stone lithographs on rag paper. Varying sheet sizes: Smallest 16.7 x 14 cm, largest 66 x 48 cm. Together with the title page and introduction text housed in a portfolio. Edition of 80. Numbered on the title page. Portrait of a Man, Self-Portrait, Portrait of Franz Hauer, Squatting Woman, Sorrow, Portrait of Arthur Roessler were etched by Schiele in 1914, Portrait of Paris von Gütersloh and Girl were drawn on the stone in 1918. In 1921, Otto Nirenstein, founder of the Verlag Neuer Graphik, the fine arts division of Rikola Verlag acquired the remaining unsold lithograph impressions and all of Schiele's original etching plates, including the rights to publish them. In 1922, Rikola Verlag published the portfolio which had an edition size of 80 as this was the number of available impressions of the two lithographs which could no longer be reprinted as the stones had since been destroyed, together with newly pulled impressions from the etching plates. The plates are now privately owned and are well protected against uncontrolled use. Jane Kallir's raisonne on Schiele states that some of these prints were rubber stamped with Schiele's signature on the verso and some were not, ours are not stamped. We have also seen a set stamped on the recto. Only 4 of Scheile's 17 prints, which include stone lithographs, drypoint etchings, rubbercuts and woodcuts were published in edition form in Schiele's lifetime, none of which appear in this portfolio. Single lifetime impressions do exist but are extremely rare. Kallir 3b, 4b, 5b, 6b, 7b, 8b, 16b, 17b
