      Paris: Three Mountains Press, 1923. First Edition; numbered 107 of 300 copies printed. Hard Cover. Octavo. [1]-79, (1) pp. Bound as issued in publisher's cloth-backed boards; lacking title label; light fraying at the spine ends; corners and board edges rubbed; some light staining to the boards; offsetting to the endpapers; contents clean and binding sound; last leaf has a small triangular chip into the margin. A notable early work from one of the great American writers and issued like so many important literary works of that time from a small but significant American press in Paris. William Bird founded the Three Mountains Press in the 1920’s and worked closely with Robert McAlmon's Contact Editions not long after opening. Bird was responsible for publishing and/or printing numerous major literary works of the era including several works by Ezra Pound, Ford Madox Ford's “Women and Men,” Robert McAlmon's “Distinguished Air,” William's “The Great American Novel,” and perhaps most notably, Hemingway's second and defining work, “In Our Time.” In fact, Pound edited the series of six short prose works that included this present novel and Hemingway's, “In Our Time.” Pound solicited Williams's work for this series about which he wrote in a letter to Williams that the “point of the thing [would] lie in its being really interesting.” Williams's novel was that. While he later referred to it as a “satire on the novel form,” his bibliographer contended that “it could be described as an attempt to explore," using Williams's own word, “the background of American life” (Wallace 16). An important work in its own right, "The Great American Novel" is also rooted in the culture of expatriate artists that Gertrude Stein named the Lost Generation. Bird's Press was integrally connected to the burgeoning Modernist movement in Paris which would define a generation of writers and influence generations that followed. An important work signed by one of the great writers of the 20th century. Wallace A6. Signed by Williams on the front free endpaper.

      New York: Monroe Wheeler, 1923. Printed string-tied wrappers. Faintest hint of darkening at extreme wrapper edges, as inevitable, otherwise a fine copy. First edition. One of 150 copies printed. Although in principle a single issue of a periodical, this item, and its compatriots in the series, have customarily been accorded the status of books. This is the first appearance of "The Hermaphroditic Telephones," but the other poems had appeared previously, without titles and in a different context, in SPRING AND ALL. One of the remaining of several exemplary copies acquired from the Williams family. WALLACE A8.

        The Ship that Sailed to Mars: a Fantasy.

      London: George G. Harrap & Company Limited, [1923] - Quarto. Original quarter japon, gilt lettered and decorated spine, grey paper covered boards, title to front board in dark grey. A few light marks to covers, old faded staining at head of front cover, light bump to lower fore-corner. A very good copy. Title page and letterpress printed in blue & black, 48 mounted colour plates, and 48 mounted pages of letterpress. First edition, first impression. Born in Northumberland, Timlin (1892-1943) began his art training in the north east of England but completed it when his parents emigrated to South Africa, where he studied art and practised as an architect. The Ship That Sailed to Mars is his only published book, a fantastical illustrated gift book that rivalled those of Rackham, Dulac, Goble and Nielsen. The book was published in Britain by George Harrap, who had earlier published Willy Pogany, and they followed a similar format here, reproducing Timlin's original calligraphic text mounted, like the plates, on grey matte paper. "The most original and beautiful children's book of the 1920s was William M. Timlin's masterpiece The Ship That Sailed to Mars. a magical combination of science fiction and fairyland" (Richard Dalby, The Golden Age of Children's Book Illustration, 1991, pp. 102-03). Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, II p. 109 ("Fantasy with its roots in the fairy tale, describing the building of a space-flying sailing ship, its voyage to Mars and the monsters encountered en route This unique book, highly sought-after by collectors of fantasy, illustrated books and South Africana").

Manuskript der Urfassung mit zahlreichen eh. Streichungen, Überarbeitungen, Korrekturen und U. "beg. [...] 3. Aug. 1923 in Erl" und "beendet 8. Dez. 1923, 7h abends".

      1923. (1), 130 num., einseitig beschr. Bll. (mit einem zusätzlichen Bl. fol. 32a). Lose Blatt. 8vo. Wohl die erste, mit zahlreichen Überarbeitungsspuren versehene Fassung des erst 1928 im Druck erschienenen Tiroler Marienspiels. Der ursprüngliche Titel "Das Erler Muttergottesspiel" wurde vom Autor - wie an der Tilgung des Adjektivs zu erkennen - zugunsten des kürzeren fallengelassen. Der volkstümliche Schriftsteller entstammte einer Südtiroler Bergführerfamilie, trat nach einem Studium in Brixen 1892 in den Redemptoristenorden ein und setzte seine Studien nach der Priesterweihe in Wien fort. Als Lehrer an Ordensschulen sowie als Missionsprediger im In- und Ausland tätig, war Innerkofler nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg ein "Vorkämpfer seiner Landsleute in Südtirol u. ihrer deutschen Kultur" (Kosch II, 1114). Beiliegend ein eh. Br. von Hermann Pfaschbach [?], einem der Organisatoren der Uraufführung des Stückes, das, so der Wunsch des Autors, durch seine und die Mithilfe von Pfarrer Ortner "in Erl in gelungener Weise zur Aufführung gelangen" sollte. Der Pfarrer Ortner selbst habe "im Kriege als Feldkurat viele Auszeichnungen und große Beliebtheit erlangt; er hat selbst wiederholt Bühnenstücke geschrieben, welche auf der von ihm wiedererrichteten Volksbühne in seinem Pfarrorte Ebbs mit viel Erfolg aufgeführt wurden und werden" (Br. v. 29.VI. 1928). - Bl. 82 in der Foliierung übersprungen, der Text selbst ist jedoch vollständig, da mit Bl. 81 das 11.

        Alpenlandschaft mit Hütte. O. O., 1923.

      1923. Aquarellierte blaue Schreibtusche auf Konstruktionszeichenkarton. 360:235 mm. Unten rechts signiert und datiert "R. Höss. 1923." Mit feiner Schreibfeder ausgeführte, nicht ungeschickte Tintenzeichnung einer von kahlen Bäumen umstandenen einsamen Holzhütte am tief verschneiten Hang, im Hintergrund Berge. Einzig die Hütte und der Zaun sind in hellbrauner Farbe ankoloriert, die übrige Schneelandschaft ist anscheinend mit der unterschiedlich verdünnten blauen Schreibtinte laviert; der Himmel mit stark verdünntem Braun minimal angetönt. Auf der Rückseite beschnittene Reste einer kolorierten geologischen Querschnittszeichnung aus der Baustoffindustrie. - Wohl einziges bekanntes Dokument einer künstlerischen Neigung des Kommandanten von Auschwitz, zu dessen Charakterzügen zwar eine kleinbürgerliche Naturverbundenheit (vgl. Martin Broszat, Kommandant in Auschwitz, S. 19) gezählt wird, wie sie aus dem vorliegenden Blatt leicht herausgelesen werden kann, dessen bekannte Gefühlsarmut und nicht zuletzt seine Betätigung im Freikorps und Beteiligung am Fememord an Walter Kadow 1923 aber kaum den Künstlerdilettanten vermuten lassen dürften. Wegen letzteren Verbrechens wurde Höß noch 1923 verhaftet und 1924 zu zehn Jahren Zuchthaus verurteilt (1928 amnestiert). Möglicherweise ist die Zeichnung während der Mußestunden der Untersuchungshaft entstanden. - Einige kleine Druckstellen; insgesamt wohlerhalten. Erworben von den Nachfahren der Familie des Infanteriegenerals und Eichenlaubträgers Karl Eibl (1891-1943).

        Die Tänze, des Lasters, des Grauens und der Ekstase.

      Wien; im Gloriette-Verlag, 1923. 22,5x16 cm. 72, (1, 1 blank) pp. + 16 photo plates + (1, 1 blank) pp. + 3 plates + (1, 1 blank) pp. + 7 plates. Original clothbacked pictorial boards with decorated endpapers. Corners are a bit worn. A slight nick at the top corner on front free endpaper up to p. 24. The last seven plates have a small nick at lower corner. The text leaves are a bit toned. A well-preserved copy. No. 365 of 1000 issued copies, of which the first 50 copies were printed on better paper, and provided with hand-coloured plates. Anita Berber (1899-1928) and her sometime husband Sebastian Droste (1892-1927) were both dancers and actors in 1920s Berlin, connected to the different subcultural scenes. The book Dances of Vice, Horror, and Ecstasy was based on a joint performance with the same name, and contains poems by both Berber and Droste, with titles such as Kokain, Selbstmord, and Morphium. Three plates shows Berber's drawings, with one of them repeated on front board. The photos, showing Berber and Droste in different dramatic postures, were taken by Dora Kalmus. The Austrian cultural historian and expressionist poet Leopold Wolfgang Rochowanski contributed with a combination of poetry and theorethical statements on art, and the final seven plates are sketches of stage decorations by architect Harry Täuber. The book is a fine example of the decadent scene of interwar Berlin.

Hardcover cloth now protected with a clearcover.; First monograph on Ming wares.; "The purpose of this book is to explain and illustrate as many varieties of Ming as possible. The text is based primarily on information obtained from Chinese sources and the occasional notes made by Europeans who visited China in the Ming period. To this must be added the deductions which can be made from the study of well-authenticated specimens, and, of course, the valuable work enshrined in the books which are mentioned in the bibliography. The first twelve chapters are occupied almost exclusively by the porcelain of Ching-tê Chên; the next four by the porcelain and pottery made at other centres. For the convenience of printing, all the Chinese characters have been collected together in the final chapter, to which reference is made in each case." excerpt from the preface by R.L. Hobson, January 1923. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
