        Lytton Strachey. Original water-color caricature of Lytton Strachey, 10 x 4 ¼ inches, signed and dated "Max 1923" in the lower left corner of the drawing

      In the picture, which bears the title "Echo", a little girl looks up at the lanky Strachey, who is leaning against the mantel of a fireplace, and says "Why, Uncle Lytton, oh why." Beerbohm first encountered Strachey in 1912 at the Savile Club, and finally met him in person in 1917. After the publication of Strachey's Eminent Victorians, the four essays of which Beerbohm considered perfect as works of art, Beerbohm wrote to Strachey to express his admiration. After the Great War, when Beerbohm was in London, the two men met "pretty often", as Beerbohm put it, and became friends. In 1943, Beerbohm delivered the Rede Lecture at Cambridge University, and chose Lytton Strachey as his subject. At the conclusion of his lecture, Beerbohm notes that Strachey dedicated his last book, Portraits in Miniature and Other Essays (1931) to Beerbohm "with gratitude and admiration", and Beerbohm returns the favor: "To him I dedicate this lecture with far greater gratitude than ever he can have felt to me, and with far deeper admiration than ever he can have had for anything of mine." One of Beerbohm's most popular caricatures, which he seems to have repeated in slightly different versions; another example on record measures slightly larger, 12 x 6 ½ inches. The original drawing was reproduced in Things New and Old (1923), plate 29. Framed and glazed.

        Le diable au corps

      First edition, one advance (service de presse) copy.Handsome autograph inscription from Raymond Radiguet to Léon Daudet: « A monsieur Léon Daudet avec ma profonde admiration. » Raymond Radiguet fait la connaissance de Léon Daudet par l'entremise de son frère Lucien Daudet, très lié à Jean Cocteau depuis sa jeunesse. Radiguet avait nourri pour Léon Daudet, alors député de Paris et membre de l'Action française, une fervente admiration qui s'était muée, très peu de temps avant son propre décès, en critique acerbe.L'origine de ce brusque revirement se trouve dans le scandale provoqué par le suicide du fils de Léon Daudet, Philippe, en novembre 1923 : le député, pour sauver son honneur, soutient la thèse d'un assassinat politique par des membres de la Sûreté Générale, à qui il reproche leurs idées républicaines. Radiguet, touché par la mort de l'adolescent, est révolté par l'attitude du père et, dans un mouvement d'humeur, écrit dans son journal : « Léon Daudet. Il est trop protégé par la République. Le déploiement de forces fait autour de lui, non par [les] Camelots du Roi, mais par le Gouvernement. Son assassinat serait peut-être deuil national, mais n'attristerait pas beaucoup ni profondément. Ce qui fait que je ne l'aime plus, c'est qu'on l'aime trop, c'est qu'il est comme les autres hommes politiques - un peu mieux, oui - Léon Daudet, c'est la Troisième République. Charles Maurras est mieux, quoique pas admirable, mais s'il est vulgaire, sa vulgarité est d'une époque antérieure à celle de Léon Daudet. » (RD,

        Reminiscences Of A Stock Operator.

      New York: Doubleday, Doran & Company, 1923. First edition, early printing of this Wall Street classic, published the same year as the first. Octavo, original green cloth. Fine in the rare original dust jacket with a touch of rubbing. First published in 1923, Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is the most widely read, highly recommended investment book ever. Generations of readers have found that it has more to teach them about markets and people than years of experience. It tells the thinly disguised biography of Jesse Livermore, a remarkable character who first started speculating in New England bucket shops at the turn of the century. Livermore, who was banned from these shady operations because of his winning ways, soon moved to Wall Street where he made and lost his fortune several times over. What makes this book so valuable are the observations that Lefèvre records about investing, speculating, and the nature of the market itself. "A must-read classic for all investors, whether brand-new or experienced" (William O'Neil).

        War Memorial.

      Small 8vo., original heavy grey wrappers. With front cover and title-page illustration from a wood engraving by David Jones and a single wood engraving by Gill. The engraving is a preliminary study for Gill's relief sculpture entitled "Christ and the Money-Changers" and was the image used for the War Memorial Gill designed for Leeds College.. Wrappers slightly browned otherwise a very good copy. First edition. This pamphlet is Gill's explanation of the work, in which he "commemorates the most just of all wars -- the war of Justice against Cupidity." With the bookplate of Michael Gerveys Sewell. Michael Gerveys Sewell, later Father Brocard Sewell, left school at 16 and found work as a general factotum in the London Office of 'GK's Weekly', the paper founded by GK Chesterton. Here he met writers, thinkers and artists. Among the many were, the printer and writer Hilary Pepler, a Quaker who converted to Roman Catholicism, Henry Williamson, the writer of Tarka the Otter and more controversial books, and Arthur Machen, a 'black-arts' writer. After he left GK's he went to join the Eric Gill's artistic community at Ditchling in Sussex. In that Catholic community he found an emotional haven and professional direction, and stayed for five years working as a compositor.

        [THE RAT-CRUSHER: EARLY 1920s COLLABORATION OF THE GREATS] Krysodav [i.e. The Rat-Crusher]. #1-3 [full]

      Moscow: Mospoligraf, 1923. In original illustrated publisher's wrappers. #1 and #2 have some restorations of the spines. Otherwise a very good set. Extremely rare. Not found in the Worldcat. The print run of the issues is 16000 (#1), 12000 (#2) and 8000 (#3). Krysodav was the meeting point of three important early Soviet art tendencies: LEF group, Krokodil group and 41 degrees from Tbilisi, Georgia. This satirical periodical is little-known but it's a remarkable example of collaboration of many famous personalities that was only possible in the early Soviet times. The magazine was edited by young Ukrainian writers who lived in Moscow at the time: Leonid Nedolia (later the editor-in-chief of YUGO-LEF magazine) and Mark Gai. The literary sections of the magazine were presented by Maiakovsky, Igor Terentiev, Sergei Tretiakov, Nikolay Aseev, Osip Brik, Alexey Kruchionykh, Vsevolod Meyrhold and others. Among artists were Kirill Zdanevich, Dmitri Moor, Boris Zemenkov, Sergei Makletsov, Boris Efimov. Nikolay Ilyin was the printing editor. The magazine is filled with lithographic images including photomontages, occusatory poems and stories, portraying the enemies of the Soviet state in a ridiculous manner. Maiakovsky wrote the poem 'My' [i.e. Us] for the front cover of the first issue of Krysodav. Sergei Tretiakov wrote the hymn of the magazine that also appeared in the first issue: in his poem Krysodav is the metaphor for USSR. Sergei Makletsov's impressive collage 'Nozhnitsy po Trotskomu' [i.e. The Scissors according to Trotsky] showing Red Army soldier cutting 'former people' with giant scissors. This was made to illustrate Trotsky's postulate about the difference in prices between industrial and agricultural goods during NEP. The magazine with such illustration would be dangerous to keep through 1930-40s and on. The second issue's cover includes very unusual photo-montage by Igor Terentiev showing the fight against contraband. In the same issue caricature of NEP-man could be found as well as interesting anti-Nazi caricatures by Kirill Zdanevich. The back cover is illustrated again by Zdanevich showing black Red-Army soldier proclaiming 'Workers of the world, unite!' Remarkable is the cover of #3 showing Lenin as a Red-Army soldier smilingly rolling over the map of Istanbul with scared people trying to escape from it. #3 is printed on a worse paper which suggests that Krysodav was closed down to paper shortage like many other periodicals of the early 1920s.

        Washington The Beautiful Capital of the Nation. Baltimore and Ohio. America's First Railroad. Washington's First Railroad....

      Baltimore & Ohio Railroad. 1923. Bird's eye view, uncolored, image and text approximately 20 1/2 x 29 inches on sheet 21 3/4 x 31 1/4 inches, published folded now archivally mounted on linen. Offset from verso barely visible in upper left corner. A spectacular bird's eye view of Washington D.C. with the Capitol and Library of Congress at lower centre. The text at lower right explains the magnitude of the achievement in its creation: "WASHINGTON. THE HEART OF THE NATION. This Aero View of Washington is the most remarkable map picture that has ever been made. Remarkable for its great range of vision and the stupendous task in making such a drawing and the extreme accuracy in the architectural "lay-out." It shows the city in perspective from a point of vantage east of the Congressional Library looking northwest, thus including the most attractive suburbs with the Capitol in the foreground. This work occupied two years of continuous time of the greatest Bird's-Eye View artist in the country. No map view of this vast and comprehensive nature has ever been made of any City and it is especially a great accomplishment when it is considered that Washington's immense area of public buildings, parks and suburbs is here shown in a picture from which anyone may become familiar with locations of the streets, business blocks and public buildings. Even though it has a "Bird's-Eye View" effect, it has all been sketched from the ground and every block and building is in proper survey."The legend beneath the image lists the map "Location of all the Public Buildings and Places of Interest." On close examination one notices the identification of not only the public buildings but many commercial establishments which are named in tiny script....
