        THE SHIRLEY LETTERS FROM CALIFORNIA MINES IN 1851-52

      San Francisco: Thomas C. Russell, 1922. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. Being a Series of Twenty-Three Letters from Dame Shirley (Mrs. Louise Amelia Knapp Smith Clappe) to her Sister in Massachusetts and now Reprinted from the Pioneer Magazine of 1854-55 with Synopses of the Letters, a Foreword, and Many Typographical and other Corrections and Emendations, by Thomas C. Russell. Together with "An Appreciation" by Mrs. M.V.T. Lawrence. Eight hand-colored line block relief prints from drawings based on old prints of life in the California Gold Fields. San Francisco: Thomas C. Russell, 1922. First edition in book form. Out of an edition of 450 copies, this is one of the 200 printed on Exeter book-paper and signed by the publisher. First published serially in "The Pioneer" magazine in 1854-55, these celebrated letters offer an insightful and vivid account of everyday life in a California mining town. Having sailed around Cape Horn to San Francisco, Clappe (1819-1906) joined her husband at Rich Bar in September 1851, and wrote a series of 23 letters between 1851 and 1852 to her sister back home in Massachusetts. Although not originally intended for publication, the letters are a carefully composed commentary upon a masculine society in which "Dame Shirley" wittily and sometimes sentimentally displays her realistic observations of a coarse and barbarous way of life. Clappe later worked as a school teacher in San Francisco, before returning to the East in 1878. From the library of California tobacco magnate Alfred I. Esberg, with his bookplate to the front pastedown. Also, laid in is a holographic letter from the publisher to Esberg, in which Russell describes in detail the variants the comprised this edition and their respective costs. Octavo. Original green paper-covered boards over a tan cloth spine, with a printed green paper spine label. The spine is a bit tanned; otherwise very good. Kurutz, G.: California Gold Rush, #133a; The Zamorano Eighty, #69.

His poems "Break of Day in the Trenches", "Louse Hunting" and "Dead Man's Dump", which are collected here, are classics of the literature of war.

        Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus.

      London: Kegan Paul, Trench, Trubner & Co, Ltd,, 1922. With an Introduction by Bertrand Russell, F.R.S. Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt. With the dust jacket, housed in the custom-made red solander box, black morocco label to spine. Bookplate to front endpaper, ownership inscription by Frank Richard Cowell to front free endpaper dated 25 January 1923, a few annotations in pencil throughout. Some closed tears to spine, light sunning to front board, free endpapers tanned. Nicks, minor loss, and tape repairs to dust jacket extremities. A very good copy. First edition in English, first issue (without the adverts at the end found in later reissues); a remarkable copy, complete with the rare dust jacket. We have only previously handled one copy with the dust jacket, the New York issue published by Harcourt, Brace & Company. On first seeing copies of the English language edition, Wittgenstein wrote to Ogden, "They really look nice. I wish their contents were half as good as their external appearance" (Monk, p. 212). This copy is from the library of F. R. Cowell, an economist and classicist who also served as Secretary-General of the British National Commission for UNESCO from 1942 to 1946. One of the philosophical masterpieces of the 20th century, originally published in German the preceding year under the title Logisch-Philosophische Abhandlung and here translated by C. K. Ogden with parallel text in German, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus became the topic of fervent discussion for both the Vienna circle of logical positivists and the Cambridge school of analysis during the inter-war years.

        Ulysses.

      Paris: by John Rodker for the Egoist Press, London, 1922 - Octavo (225 × 175 mm). Contemporary japon, title handwritten in gilt and blue to spine, marbled endpapers, original blue paper wrappers bound in at front and rear, edges untrimmed, yellow cotton page marker. Very light rubbing to boards, edges browned; an excellent copy. First UK edition, printed in France, and the second printing overall, printed from the plates of the first edition. Number 1,641 of 2,000 numbered copies issued for publication through the Egoist Press in the UK, of which 500 copies were reportedly destroyed by US Customs. Ulysses was banned in the US at this time, despite this a pirate edition was said to be planned in New York, prompting Rodker to publish this edition and plan a number of schemes to get copies into the US; including smuggling them via the Canadian border, and sending books across the Atlantic in parts, hidden in newspapers, to be rebound in America. The contemporary incognito binding on this copy of plain vellum to which manuscript titles could be added may well have been executed for such smuggling purposes.

        Excoriating Typed Letter Signed to Mr Hecht in Switzerland (George Bernard, 1856-1950, Dramatist & Critic)

      1922 - saying that it is "no use asking me or any one else who is up to date in economics to go back to the eighteenth century on the ground that we should begin at the beginning. You might as well ask us to go back to the Ptolemaic astromony. Your essay is rubbish. When you began there seemed some hope . all you needed apparently was to master what had already been worked out in abstract economics: that is, the supply-and-demand theory as completed by Jevons and the Swiss and Austrian economists, and the theory of rent. But you have not done so: you go on blundering over elementary matters and trying to ford rivers that have been bridged for half a century and you have lost all your freshness, and taken to dull abuse of the experts . The only definition of a luxury that I have ever been able to arrive at is something that would not be produced if the user had to earn it instead of getting it for nothing. No other line can be drawn . Please don't send me any more essays. Buy an island and live on it with Major Douglas . have a happy time explaining to one another how to save the world from financial ruin .", 2 sides oblong 8vo., 10 Adelphi Terrace headed paper, 26th July

        Rayonnement noir et quanta de lumière [Blackbody Radiation and Light Quanta]

      Le Journal de Physique et le Radium, Paris 1922 - FIRST PRINTING IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS OF DE BROGLIE'S 1922 PAPER ASSIGNING MASS TO PHOTONS: "THE SEED FROM WHICH DE BROGLIE'S SUBSEQUENT WORK GREW." "In 1922 [de Broglie] published a paper on treating blackbody radiation as a gas of light quanta. In this paper, de Broglie made the unusual assumption that photons has a very small but non-zero rest mass m0. He was therefore now applying Einstein's relations E = hv and p = h/? (relating energy and momentum to frequency and wavelength) to massive particles, even if these were still only photons. It seems that de Broglie made the assumption m0 does not equal 0 so that light quanta could be treated in the same way as ordinary material particles. It appears that this paper was the seed from which de Broglie's subsequent work grew" (Bacciagaluppi and Valentini, Quantum Theory at the Crossroads: Reconsidering the 1927 Solvay Conference). IN: Le Journal de Physique et le Radium, Tome III, Série VI, November 1922, pp. 422-428. Paris: La Societe Francaise de Physique, 1922. Octavo, original wrappers; custom box.

        Memorials of St James's Street together with The Annals of Almack's.

      8vo., sometime bound by Root in full dark blue crushed morocco, ruled in gilt, spine ruled and lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, rich gilt turn-ins over watered silk endpapers. With 16 illustrations, extra illustrated with 8 colour plates and 44 black and white plates (predominantly portraits). A little rubbing to raised bands on spine otherwise a very good copy. First edition. A handsomely bound extra-illustrated copy including a hand coloured frontispiece of Pollard's Four in Hand at the Roebuck (rather incongruously as The Roebuck was in Turnham Green). With a history of the Club Almack's. Almack's Assembly Rooms was a social club in London from 1765 to 1871 and one of the first to admit both men and women. It was one of a limited number of upper class mixed-sex public social venues in the British capital in an era when the most important venues for the hectic social season were the grand houses of the aristocracy. From 1871 it was renamed "Willis's Rooms" The Assembly Rooms first opened in purposeful rivalry to Mrs. Cornelys' entertainments at Carlisle House; her masquerade balls were becoming notorious. At first it was described as a "female Brook's"--a gambling club to which women were admitted, as well as men. Male members proposed and elected the female members, and women proposed and elected the male members. At this time, like Almack's other establishments, it was meant to make money as what would now be called a casino. It was, like a male club, open any night, and gambling was all that went on, besides a little supper served by Mr. and Mrs. Almack, the latter of whom poured tea while wearing a fashionable sack gown. In 1770, Horace Walpole wrote of "The Female Coterie", "There is a new Institution that begins to make, and if it proceeds will make, considerable noise. It is a club of both sexes to be erected at Almack's, on the model of that of the men at White's. Mrs Fitzroy, Lady Pembroke, Mrs Meynell, Lady Molyneux, Miss Pelham and Miss Lloyd are the foundresses. I am ashamed to say I am of so young and fashionable society; but as they are people I live with, I choose to be idle rather than morose. I can go to a young supper without forgetting how much sand is run out of the hour-glass. This first phase of Almack's suffered from competition from The Pantheon or "Winter Ranelagh Gardens" from 1772 until it burned down twenty years later Play seems to have fallen off, as Almack's entered its second phase some time after 1800.

      Paris: Meynial, 1922. Barbier, George. Small quarto. 12pp., + (12)ff. colored plates, loose as issued. One of 600 copies.

Not all of the plates are traditional fashion plates; Barbier chose to include many fantastical renderings of period and foreign costumes and folk dress, presented in his usual elegant style. This is the first issue of the publication, which ran until 1926. The issue is by Comtesse Mathieu de Noailles and includes a color-illustrated title page and an additional black & white headpiece. Near fine, with a few pages still unopened. In chemise, illustrated with a young woman fending off Cupid's arrows, and original glassine. (Colas 1026).

        The Worst Journey in the World, the copy of the author's friend and reviewer with a small archive, including a holograph letter from Cherry-Garrard, a 1909 original photograph of Cherry-Garrard, and newspaper clippings, including the original Morning Post review, a 1922 letter to the editor from Cherry-Garrard, and the author's 1959 obituary

      London: Constable and Company Limited, 1922. First edition. This first edition of “one of the undisputed classics of exploration literature” belonged to the authorÂ’s friend and reviewer, Arturi D. Ingram, whose bookplate is affixed to each front pastedown. A small, accompanying archive includes a holograph 3 February 1923 letter on Cherry-GarrardÂ’s Lamar Park stationery to Ingram pasted onto the Volume II half-title verso (“My autograph, for what itÂ’s worth…”), an original 1909 photo of Cherry-Garrard (pasted below the authorÂ’s Volume I note following the title page) with IngramÂ’s notes on the photo laid in (dated “Jan 1931”), and several newspaper clippings, including IngramÂ’s 1922 Morning Post review, a 1922 letter to the Morning Post Editor, and Cherry-GarrardÂ’s 1959 obituary. Condition is very good given the editionÂ’s inherent fragility. The publisherÂ’s original bindings of tan linen over blue-gray paper-covered boards remain square and firmly attached, with minor wear to extremities and some spotting and soiling to the boards. The original paper spine labels are intact and the publisher-supplied replacement labels remain tipped onto the front free endpapers. The blue-gray endpapers are intact. All illustrations and maps are present. Spotting, heaviest to the untrimmed page edges, is substantially confined to blank inner margins within. At 24, Apsley Cherry-Garrard (1886-1959) was the youngest member of Robert Falcon ScottÂ’s fatal Terra Nova Expedition (1910-1913) which, among other objectives, sought to be the first to reach the geographic South Pole. Born to wealth, the young Cherry “sought meaning and direction” and “He found both when he met the inspirational scientist, Bill Wilson, through whom he obtained a place on Scott's expedition.” Acutely myopic and bespectacled and with no previous exploration experience, Cherry was an unlikely Expedition choice. His “pluck, charm and unflagging enthusiasm” led crewmates to bestow the nickname “Cheery.” During the winter of 1911, Cherry, along with Wilson and Lieutenant Henry Bowers made a trip to Cape Crozier to collect Emperor penguin eggs for what became the Natural History Museum in London. “Cherry, Wilson and Birdie Bowers hauled 750 pounds of equipment 67 miles each way through the dark Antarctic winter to obtain emperor penguin embryos, never before seen by anyone except the penguins themselves. They nearly died in temperatures dropping to minus 76 degrees Fahrenheit, sometimes marching as little as a mile and a half in a day...” CherryÂ’s clothing froze. His teeth shattered. “It was as if three men in mere terrestrial garb had been tossed into howling outer space.” But they survived, forming an intense bond. When they parted, Cherry did not know that when he next time saw them, they would be lying dead at their last camp with Scott, whom they accompanied on the final push to the South Pole. Cherry set out towards Scott with food supplies, accompanied only by a dog team and its Russian boy driver, but, through no fault of CherryÂ’s, the effort failed. A 1959 obituary said, “Cherry-Garrard could never forget the expedition and subconsciously, against all reason, felt that he should have gone on alone to try to meet his friends, which would only have added two more deaths to the tragedy.” CherryÂ’s health and spirit were permanently impaired, but this did not prevent his writing this remarkable account of his experience – a story that is gripping and humane and even tinged with humor: “Polar exploration is at once the cleanest and most isolated way of having a bad time which has been devised.” In writing he had the encouragement and support of his neighbors, George Bernard Shaw and his wife, and it was reportedly Shaw who chose the title. “… he did not set out to write another hagiographic tribute. He wrote in order to tell a true storyÂ… he correctly understood that ultimately it was ''the spirit of the men, 'the response of the spirit,' which is interesting rather than what they did or failed to do.''

        Memorials of St James's Street together with The Annals of Almack's.

      1922 - 8vo., sometime bound by Root in full dark blue crushed morocco, ruled in gilt, spine ruled and lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, rich gilt turn-ins over watered silk endpapers. With 16 illustrations, extra illustrated with 8 colour plates and 44 black and white plates (predominantly portraits). A little rubbing to raised bands on spine otherwise a very good copy. First edition. A handsomely bound extra-illustrated copy including a hand coloured frontispiece of Pollard's Four in Hand at the Roebuck (rather incongruously as The Roebuck was in Turnham Green). With a history of the Club Almack's. Almack's Assembly Rooms was a social club in London from 1765 to 1871 and one of the first to admit both men and women. It was one of a limited number of upper class mixed-sex public social venues in the British capital in an era when the most important venues for the hectic social season were the grand houses of the aristocracy. From 1871 it was renamed "Willis's Rooms" The Assembly Rooms first opened in purposeful rivalry to Mrs. Cornelys' entertainments at Carlisle House; her masquerade balls were becoming notorious. At first it was described as a "female Brook's"â€"a gambling club to which women were admitted, as well as men. Male members proposed and elected the female members, and women proposed and elected the male members. At this time, like Almack's other establishments, it was meant to make money as what would now be called a casino. It was, like a male club, open any night, and gambling was all that went on, besides a little supper served by Mr. and Mrs. Almack, the latter of whom poured tea while wearing a fashionable sack gown. In 1770, Horace Walpole wrote of "The Female Coterie", "There is a new Institution that begins to make, and if it proceeds will make, considerable noise. It is a club of both sexes to be erected at Almack's, on the model of that of the men at White's. Mrs Fitzroy, Lady Pembroke, Mrs Meynell, Lady Molyneux, Miss Pelham and Miss Lloyd are the foundresses. I am ashamed to say I am of so young and fashionable society; but as they are people I live with, I choose to be idle rather than morose. I can go to a young supper without forgetting how much sand is run out of the hour-glass. This first phase of Almack's suffered from competition from The Pantheon or "Winter Ranelagh Gardens" from 1772 until it burned down twenty years later Play seems to have fallen off, as Almack's entered its second phase some time after 1800.

        SEFER HA-SHIRIM : LE-GANE-YELADIM U-LE-VATE-SEFER `AMAMIYIM VE-TIKHONIM, LE-BAYIT ULE-MAKHELAH

      Berlin : Yudisher Farlag, 1922 - Revised edition, this edition containing first publication of Hava Nagila anywhere. Original boards. 8vo. 168 pages. 23 cm. In Hebrew. Title translates to "Book of Songs : For Kindergartens and National Schools. " Abraham Zevi Idelsohn was a prominent Jewish musicologist, composer, and cantor. He is perhaps best known for his lyrical contribution to the song Hava Nagila and for his 10 volume work "Thesaurus of Hebrew Oriental Melodies. " (Wikipedia, 2016) In the work for sale here, Idelsohn analyzes various musical modes and intonations that are present in the wide spectrum of Jewish music. Thus, the reader gains a greater understanding of how songs are adapted to the various Jewish cultures of the Diaspora. "‘Hava Nagila’ (Havah Nagilah, ‘Let us rejoice’) is an Israeli folk song traditionally sung at Jewish celebrations. It is perhaps the first modern Israeli folk song in the Hebrew language that has become a staple of band performers at Jewish weddings and bar/bat mitzvah celebrations . Abraham Zevi Idelsohn (1882–1938) , a professor at Hebrew University, began cataloging all known Jewish music and teaching classes in musical composition; one of his students was a promising cantorial student, Moshe Nathanson, who (with the rest of his class) was presented by the professor with a 19th-century, slow, melodious, chant (niggun or nigun) and assigned to add rhythm and words to fashion a modern Hebrew song. There are competing claims regarding Hava Nagila's composer, with both Idelsohn and Nathanson being suggested. The niggun he presented has been attributed to the Sadigurer Chasidim, who lived in what is now Ukraine, which uses the Phrygian dominant scale common in music of Transylvania. The commonly used text was probably refined by Idelsohn. In 1918, the song was one of the first songs designed to unite the early Yishuv [Jewish enterprise] that arose after the British victory in Palestine during World War I and the Balfour Declaration, declaring a national Jewish homeland in the lands newly liberated from Turkey by the Allies and entrusted to Britain under the Treaty of Versailles. Although Psalm 118 (verse 24) of the Hebrew Bible may have been a source for the text of ‘Hava Nagila’, the expression of the song and its accompanying hora (‘circle’) dance was entirely secular in its outlook" (Wikipedia, 2016) .

        Printer's advertisement for Ulysses

      , 1922. 1922. (BEACH, Sylvia) JOYCE, James. Printer's advertisement for Ulysses. Paris: Shakespeare and Company, circa 1931. Single printed sheet, measuring 5-1/2 by 5 inches. $13,500.Original Shakespeare and Company printer's advertisement for the works of James Joyce, annotated at length on the verso by Sylvia Beach listing the publication and availability of the first three parts of Finnegans Wake while still under the working title Works in Progress.After working seven years on Ulysses, Joyce, desperate to find a publisher, turned to Sylvia Beach of Shakespeare and Company in Paris. ""Within a month of the publication, the first printing of Ulysses was practically sold out, and within a year Joyce had become a well-known literary figure"" (de Grazia, 27). From that point forward, Beach represented Joyce and his work in nearly every capacity, "" facing down outraged critics, legal rulings and printers who refused to take on Joyce's work"" (British Library). This printer's advertisement reflects Beach's lifelong commitment to promoting Joyce's work, including through the writing of Finnegans Wake, seen here when it was still Work in Progress. The lengthy notations cover the verso and are entirely in Beach's hand: ""1st fragment of 'Work in Progress' published in New York by Crosby Gage 1928 Anna Livia Plurabelle (from part I) 650 copies all signed. 2nd fragment Tales Told of Shem & Shaun (from part II) The Black Sun Press, Paris 1929. 3rd fragment Babou & Kahane, Paris 1930 Haveth Childers Everywhere from part III. Parts I and III and a small section of part II of Work in Progress appeared in the review Transition Nos 1-8 and III to 15."" Interestingly, Finnegans Wake led to the undoing of Beach and her bookshop. Shakespeare and Company ""closed in December 1941, when a Nazi officer threatened to confiscate the stock of the bookshop if Sylvia did not sell him her only copy of the novel"" (Fitch, 393). Beach had endured a downturn in business, hiding her stock from the Nazis, the deaths of her husband and James Joyce. Ultimately, she could not endure the perversion of Joyce's legacy. This printer's advertisement represents the twilight years of Joyce's brilliant career, before he succumbed to illness and disability, when the possibilities of Finnegans Wake, still unfinished, seemed limitless and Sylvia Beach had no reason to believe her reign as the most powerful literary figure in Paris would ever end. Small repricing overlay reading ""Frs. 12"" on recto. Printed telephone number on recto crossed out with new number neatly stamped below. Two annotations in an unknown hand: [below Ulysses] ""in paper covers cloth binding"" and [below Pomes Penyeach] ""(out of print).""About-fine condition.
