SHACKLETON - Peary
Hayes, Middlesex: The Gramophone Co., Ltd., n.d. after 1922.(). A 78 rpm record by HMV, with Shackleton's recording to one side and Peary's to the other, minor surface marks but overall in very good condition, contained in the original printed paper sleeve. HMV catalogue number D377. On his return from the Antarctic in 1909, shortly after his expedition ship Nimrod docked in New Zealand, Shackleton was asked to describe his attempt to reach the pole for the purposes of a recording. The track was laid down on June 23, 1909, and issued by HMV with a recording of Robert Peary's description of his attainment of the North Pole (a recording made in 1910). The record remained on the HMV catalogue until 1939, and this example, which refers to "The Late Sir Ernest Shackleton", is a reissue, the stamper numbers being GD for the Shackleton recording, and GG for Peary - i.e. the 20th and 11th pressings respectively. Any example of the recording is uncommon.

Entire volumes offered. All volumes with stamp to title page and front free end paper, otherwise a fine and clean set. [Friedmann:] Bd. 10: Pp. 377-386; Bd. 21: P.p. 326-332. [Einstein:] Bd. 11:P. 326; Bd. 16: P. 228. ¶ First printing of these four landmark paper in which Friedman "introduced into cosmology two concepts of revolutionary importance, the age og the world and the creation of the world" (Kragh, Cosmology and Controversy). "In his paper of 1922, Friedmann offered a complete analysis of the solutions of Einstein's cosmological field equations that went beyond the earlier solutions of Einstein and de Sitter as it also included nonstatic solutions. Friedmann did so clearly and explicitly: "The purpose of this note," he wrote, "is firstly to show that the cylindrical [Einstein]and spherical [de Sitter] worlds are special cases of more general assumptions, and secondly to demonstrate the possibility of a world in which the curvature of space is independent of the three spatial coordinates but does on time".(Ibid.).In 'Über die Krümmung des Raumes' Friedman derived the non-stationary solutions to Einstein's field equations. Einstein quickly responded in a short comment ('Bemerkung'), in which he expressed his suspicion of such a model of the Universe and apparently pointed out an error in Friedman's calculations. However, Friedman now wrote a letter to Einstein, in which he … [Click Below for Full Description]

FRIEDMAN, ALEXANDER & ALBERT EINSTEIN. - [THE CURVATURE OF SPACE]
(Berlin, Julius Springer, 1922-24). 8vo. In: "Zeitschrift für Physik", Vol. 10 (pp. 377 ff.),Vol.11 (pp.326), vol.16 (pp.228), vol.21 (pp.326-332). The entire four volumes offered here. Contemporary half cloth bindings. ¶ All first editions. In 'Über die Krümmung des Raumes' Friedman derived the non-stationary solutions to Einstein's field equations. Einstein quickly responded in a short comment ('Bemerkung'), in which he expressed his suspicion of such a model of the Universe and apparently pointed out an error in Friedman's calculations. However, Friedman now wrote a letter to Einstein, in which he enclosed his full calculations. Shortly after this, Einstein submitted a short notice (Notiz), in which he admitted that he himself had performed a calculation error and that Friedman's solutions, which shed new light on the matter, were valid. Friedman's expanding universe model was corroborated by Edwin Hubble's red-shift observations in 1929. In 'Über die Möglichkeit einer Welt mit konstanter negativer Krümmung des Raumes' Friedman derived the Friedman-equations and demonstrated that he had command of all three Friedman-models describing positive, zero and negative curvature respectively, nearly a decade before the independent discoveries of the same models by Lemaître, Robertson, and Walker.

Joyce, James
Paris: Shakespeare and Company, 1922. First Edition. Fine. Exquisitely bound in full navy morocco by the Chelsea bindery. Gilt details on the boards, spine and turn ins, top edge gilt, silk moire end papers and paste-downs, original front wrapper bound in. One of 150 large paper copies, this copy number 231, originally sold to John Clark. Binding Fine. Internal contents are generally in excellent condition, a bit of toning to the front wrapper and the ocassional marginal spot. Joyce's masterwork of modernism, one of the great books of the 20th century. Though it follows a single day in the life of Dubliner Leopold Bloom - June 16th, a day which has since become a worldwide holiday - Ulysses' complex structure is actually inspired by Homer's Odyssey. The book's stream of consciousness prose and its experimental nature were groundbreaking, and many of the techniques Joyce used have since become standard fare. Ulysses took Joyce over seven years to write, and the story of its publication became an epic in itself. The work was first released in serial from 1918 to 1920 in the magazine "The Little Review," and published in Paris in a limited first edition in 1922 by Sylvia Beach, the owner of the Shakespeare and Company bookstore. It was not, however, released in the UK and United States, where the book had quickly been banned. In fact, copies were smuggled into both countries until a landmark obscenity trial cleared the book for American publication in 1934. Joyce claimed that he "put in so many enigmas and puzzles [into Ulysses] that it will keep the professors bus … [Click Below for Full Description]

MORAND (Paul)
Paris, Editions de la Nouvelle Revue française, (25 février) 1922. 1 vol. (170 x 220 mm) de 208 pp., [2] et 1 ff. Broché. Edition originale. Un des 110 premiers exemplaires réimposés in-4 sur vergé pur fil (n° LIII). A un an d'intervalle, Paul Morand fit publier deux recueils de nouvelles dont les titres lui avaient été soufflés par son père : « Appelle ton livre Ouvert la nuit, ainsi, s'il a du succès, tu en publieras un autre et tu l'appelleras Fermé la nuit ». L'hypothèse se vérifia. Les ventes du premier comblèrent les espérances les plus folles de la NRF. Le titre avait du reste bénéficié d'une publicité habile ; dans les encarts du journal Eve on pouvait lire : un livre « à ne pas laisser lire aux jeunes filles ». Accroche qui devait séduire Marcel Proust, alors occupé à la publication de son Sodome et Gomorrhe, qui réclama à Gaston Gallimard la même formule. Le premier encouragea Morand à publier ses nouvelles : c'est ainsi que Tendres stocks sortit chez Gallimard en 1921, avec, insigne faveur, une longue préface signée Marcel Proust. Morand lui offrira son Ouvert la nuit avec cet envoi : « à Marcel Proust, qui voit la nuit, son ami ». Les nouvelles qui composent Ouvert et Fermé la nuit entraînent le lecteur dans le monde de la bohème cosmopolite, en Espagne, Hongrie, Turquie ou Italie : « J'ai écrit mes premières nouvelles pour frapper un coup, non pas en littérature, mais dans le siècle. C'était ma façon d'annoncer aux gens que des signes étaient en train d'apparaître dans le ciel », devait écrire Morand dans la préface de la réédition de 1957.

Nakazawa Hiromitsu, artist
1922. [Shin Hanga Portfolio] Nakazawa Hiromitsu, artist. NIHON TAIKAN. [Views of Japan] Tokyo: Bun'endô, 1922. 38 x 27 cm, oblong folio in size. 50 single sheet color woodblock prints of views, primarily in the Kyoto/Osaka area, with prefatory descriptions, in a tied portfolio with a woodblock cover, in the original printed box, all in a clasped modern folding box. This massive work was undertaken by Kanao Tanejirô of the Bun'endô as a challenge to the primacy of Watanabe in the field of shin hanga. For this effort, he assembled some of the best printers and engravers of the day, Nishimura Kumakichi and Okada Seijirô, and combined their talents with those of Nakazawa Hiromitsu. Hiromitsu's work is at its best, here. Less stiff than that of Hasui or even Yoshida, it carries the re-creation in woodcut of the "feel" of watercolor to new heights. (See Scott Johnson on the `Sketchtour' genre for more on Bunendô and Hiromitsu.) In any case, this most ambitious of landscape productions is also among the rarest. Completed the year before the great Earthquake and fire of 1923, all the unsold sets of NIHON TAIKAN and the blocks themselves were lost. This set of prints is very clean, though the original box is worn and rather broken and the introductory material is quite foxed. Rare:.

AUSTEN, John.) SHAKESPEARE, William.
London: Selwyn & Blount Ltd, 1922. Quarto. Original cloth-backed cream decorative boards, spine and front cover lettered and blocked in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut. Housed in a custom white slip case. Minor soiling and light abrasion to covers, bumping to tips, else a very good copy. Illustrated throughout by Austen. First edition, signed limited issue, number 19 of 60 copies printed on hand-made paper, with an extra title page, and signed by the illustrator. Originally trained as a carpenter, Austen came to London in 1906 to take up the study of art, becoming the process "a long-haired studio exquisite the perfect aesthete, precious, even in appearance, to the finger-tips; and a trifle cynical" (Richardson, John Austen and the Inseparables, p. 22). Early on he was much influenced by Beardsley, but after the First World War he befriended Austin Osman Spare, and together "with Alan Odle and Harry Clarke, Austen contributed drawings to Spare's sumptuously produced but short-lived quarterly, the Golden Hind (1922–4), and in 1925 Austen, Spare, Odle, and Clarke exhibited at St George's Gallery in London" (ODNB). The present work is generally considered his finest achievement. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

[2], viii, 239, [1, colophon] pp. Chapter-headings and shoulder-notes printed in red, and the initials of each chapter in red or blue. With fifty-three illustrations by Charles M. Gere, which were cut on wood by J.B. Swain. The initial letters designed by Graily Hewitt. Publisher's limp vellum, smooth spine lettered in gilt, fore and lower edges uncut, original green linen ties. Small ink number "1207" on front paste-down and very slight paper residue on front free end-paper. A fine copy. The Ashendene I Fioretti... contains fifty-three fine woodcuts illustrating the life of St. Francis of Assisi, and was the last Ashendene to be printed in Italian, and the last (apart from two contributions to the Press Bibliography) to contain Charles Gere's work. The Ashendene Press of C.H. St. John Hornby set many of the standards for the burgeoning private press industry in turn-of-the-century England. St. John Hornsby's independent wealth allowed him to approach the art of fine printing with little regard for the cost of materials or the financial success of his productions. As a result he utilized the highest quality paper, inks, and other materials. "Noble in design and exceedingly fine in execution" (McMurtri … [Click Below for Full Description]

Light soiling to back cover, corners and spine label show slight wear, else fine. Ives selected these (actually 52 songs) from his collection 114 Songs, published earlier in 1922, as being of greater general interest. Both collections were privately engraved and printed for Ives by G. Schirmer, the 114 Songs in edition of 1500 copies; we haven't located a record of the number printed of 50 Songs, but it must have been far fewer.

Doris Ulmann
The Johns Hopkins Press. The uncommon 1922 1st edition of this very inpressive collection of portraits of various faculty of the Medical School at Johns Hopkins University. Taken by one of the leading American photographers of the early 20th century, Doris Ulmann (1882-1934), the 37 separate gravure portaits, each crisp and very clean and each including its original tissue-guard, show the signatures-in-facsimile of each subject below the photograph. The book itself, a folio in its buckram-backed light-green boards, has held up nicely and is very presentable. Very light spotting and offsetting to the front panel, light, harmless staining at the blank endsheets. Small, neat former owner name at the title page as well. The plates themselves (the photographs) are immaculate, with no foxing or wear of any kind. Along with Ulmann's 1920 companion book of portraits of the faculty of Columbia's Medical School, this represents her finest work in academic portraiture. Very Good.

Prichard, Kate Hesketh
N.p, 1922. MULTI PAGE HOLOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED about 550 words to outfitter Henry Blair of Newfoundland dated 7/13/1922, concerning his condolences on the death of her son (and co-author), Hesketh Prichard, recounting the inception of her sons illness in France, his refusal to return home until his work was done, finally being forced to come home in April of 1918, how blood poisoning was undetected for a long time as he was treated for everything else, her sons last days dying at 3:30 of the morning of June 14th, that he met his disappointments and sufferings so gallantly, how the news of her sons death appeared in some 300 newspapers which told of his splendid character and achievements, his book sniping in france, receiving many letters from those who loved and honored him, hoping that the whole thing was but a dream, her condolences on the death of his (Blair's) wife, that her son likewise thought much of him, etc. (H. Hesketh Prichard was an explorer, adventurer, big-game hunter and marksman who made a significant contribution to sniping practice within the British Army during the First World War. Concerned not only with improving the quality of marksmanship, the measures he introduced to counter the threat of German snipers were credited by a contemporary with saving the lives of over 3,500 Allied soldiers. During his lifetime, he also explored territory never seen before by a European, played cricket at first-class level, including on overseas tours, wrote short stories and novels (one of which was turned into a Douglas Fairbanks film) and was a successful newspaper co … [Click Below for Full Description]

Joyce, James
Paris: Shakespeare and Company, 1922. First Edition. Fine. Exquisitely bound in full navy morocco by the Chelsea bindery. Gilt details on the boards, spine and turn ins, top edge gilt, silk moire end papers and paste-downs, original front wrapper bound in. One of 150 large paper copies, this copy number 231, originally sold to John Clark. Binding Fine. Internal contents are generally in excellent condition, a bit of toning to the front wrapper and the ocassional marginal spot. Joyce's masterwork of modernism, one of the great books of the 20th century. Though it follows a single day in the life of Dubliner Leopold Bloom - June 16th, a day which has since become a worldwide holiday - Ulysses' complex structure is actually inspired by Homer's Odyssey. The book's stream of consciousness prose and its experimental nature were groundbreaking, and many of the techniques Joyce used have since become standard fare. Ulysses took Joyce over seven years to write, and the story of its publication became an epic in itself. The work was first released in serial from 1918 to 1920 in the magazine "The Little Review," and published in Paris in a limited first edition in 1922 by Sylvia Beach, the owner of the Shakespeare and Company bookstore. It was not, however, released in the UK and United States, where the book had quickly been banned. In fact, copies were smuggled into both countries until a landmark obscenity trial cleared the book for American publication in 1934. Joyce claimed that he "put in so many enigmas and puzzles [into Ulysses] that it will keep the professors bus … [Click Below for Full Description]

Maugham, W. Somerset
New York: George H. Doran Company, n.d. [1922]. Original orange paper-covered boards with yellow cloth spine, with red dust jacket. First Edition, consisting of 2000 copies published one month earlier than Heinemann's London edition. These are sketches resulting from Maugham's 1919-1920 trip up the Yangtze River in China; they are not so much sketches about what Maugham saw, but rather about whom he met -- especially Westerners who portray varying degrees of acceptance or resistance to Chinese culture (a friction at the heart of many Maugham novels).~This volume is in fine condition (one tiny chip in the front cover paper); the very uncommon red dust jacket is remarkably near-fine (spine faded as usual for the color red, one very small chip at the foot of the spine). Toole Stott A28a. Housed in a custom cloth slipcase with leather labels. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
