        THE BALLAD OF READING GAOL

      (Munich): (Drei Masken Verlag), (1923). First Edition. Hardcover. Slight foxing to endpapers, a couple of pages roughly opened. Fine in a close to Fine dustwrapper and clamshell box. Frans Masereel. Quarto (7" x 11") bound in full gilt-ruled and lettered vellum with marbled endpapers by Hübel & Denck, with the original plain paper dustwrapper and cloth clamshell box. Illustrated with 37 woodcuts including 7 striking full-page woodcuts by Frans Masereel. Of a total of 320 copies SIGNED by the artist on the colophon page, this is copy #59 of only 70 of the "A" Edition with each woodcut SIGNED in pencil by Masereel. According to Masereel scholar and bookseller Abraham Horodisch, "The typographical design of the book is exquisite... Of all illustrated editions of the Ballad, the Masereel edition seems to me to have the highest artistic importance. This is necessarily a subjective appraisal, but I must confess that, both in conception and execution, Masereel's woodcuts have made the deepest impression on me. Surely there can be few who will remain unmoved by their suggestive power."

        The World Crisis, full set of six British first edition, first printings, in dust jackets

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1923. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is a full, six-volume British first edition, first printing six-volume set in the exceedingly rare first printing dust jackets, a prize thus. When this set was originally published between 1923 and 1931, booksellers often discarded the dust jackets when offering the books for sale. Even those which were not discarded often did not survive; the jackets for the two 1916-1918 volumes and the Eastern Front volume proved notoriously brittle. The mere fact that this set is jacketed commands attention; several other considerations make it particularly noteworthy. The 1911-1914 dust jacket is the first printing, with a blank rear panel that does not advertise subsequent volumes in the series. Also noteworthy, the 1916-1918 jackets and the Eastern Front jacket are all in one piece, with no detached flaps or hinge breaks. We know of no other complete, first printing jacketed sets on the world market thus. Overall condition of this set is near fine in very good dust jackets. All six bindings are square, clean, and tight with bright spine gilt and only trivial blemishes. Spotting is modest for the edition, substantially confined to text block edges and prelims, with only occasional intrusions into blank inner margins. The sole previous ownership mark we find in the set is an inked name dated ?May 1923? in Volume I. The contents of most of the volumes retain a crisp, unread feel. The dust jackets range from very good plus to very good minus. The exceptionally elusive Eastern Front dust jacket has spine head loss to a maximum depth of .75 inch, minor chipping to the top edges of the front and rear panels, and closed tears at the lower hinges. As is always the case, the pale green color is toned on the spine, though still visible on the panels and flaps. The Aftermath jacket suffers only fractional loss to the top edges. The 1916-1918 jackets are quite remarkable for the edition. The Part II jacket is nearly complete, with just fractional chipping to the spine head and corners and mild spine toning. The Part I jacket shows fractional chipping to the upper edges and corners with spine head loss that is one inch wide and a maximum of just over half an inch deep and some barely discernible moisture staining to the upper front panel adjacent to the spine. The 1915 jacket shows only fractional chipping to corners and hinge extremities, light overall soiling, and modest spine toning. The 1911-1914 jacket shows small losses at the spine head and corners, overall soiling, and spine toning, with a price reduction penciled faintly above the original price on the lower spine. The World Crisis is Winston Churchill's epic history of the First World War, in which he played such a critical, controversial, and varied role. Churchill was in a special position to write this history, having served both in the Cabinet and on the Front. Churchill served as First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 until 1915, but after the failure in the Dardanelles, he was scapegoated and forced to resign. He spent his political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Before the war's end, Churchill was exonerated and rejoined the Government, foreshadowing the political isolation and restoration he would experience nearly two decades later leading up to the Second World War. Despite Churchill's political recovery, the stigma of the Dardanelles would linger. Churchill may have meant for his history of the First World War to clear his name, but his six volume masterwork far exceeds this purpose. Many consider the British edition aesthetically superior to the U.S., with its larger volumes and shoulder notes summarizing the subject of each page. This is as early as a collector can plausibly go for jacketed first edition works by Churchill.

Vuillard abjectly apologizes for some social faux pas (probably overlooking an invitation): "Mon cher ami, je suis confus de mon impolitesse et ne sais comment m'en excuser. Le moindre mot à écrire m'est plus difficile qu'un métier de peinture à couvrir ; j'ai aussi tardé à répondre à votre aimable petit mot n'étant pas sûr d'être libre samedi ...

        Peintre de la Vie Moderne

      1923 - BAUDELAIRE, Charles. Le Peintre de la Vie Moderne, Constantin Guys. Paris: Éditions René Kieffer, (1923). Folio, contemporary full brown morocco, elaborately blind-tooled spine and boards, raised bands, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, uncut. $1500.Limited first illustrated edition, number 123 of 550 copies, of Baudelaire's highly influential essay in which he differentiates the modern age from that which came before, with 16 plates of watercolors by Constantin Guys, whose work inspired Baudelaire to write the essay. Beautifully bound by René Kieffer.Constantin Guys "has everywhere sought after the fugitive, fleeting beauty of present-day life, the distinguishing character of that quality which, with the reader's kind permission, we have called "˜modernity'. Often weird, violent and excessive, he has contrived to concentrate in his drawings that acrid or heady bouquet of the wine of life" (Le Peintre de la Vie Moderne). With these words, Baudelaire named, and created, the modernist movement. Baudelaire "was a precursor of modern poetry by his perception of the symbolic correspondences of colors, scents, and sounds, by his exploration of the musical possibilities of the French language, and above all by his evocative power" (Harvey & Heseltine, 53-54). While this was first published in 1863, it was not until this lovely 1923 edition that Baudelaire's words were united in one volume with the watercolors by Guys that inspired them. Text in French. Original wrappers and spine bound in. Small binder's ticket.A handsome, fine copy, beautifully bound and illustrated. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

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

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.

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. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Wreck Of The Grosvenor

      New York: Dodd, Mead & Company, Inc, 1923 349 pgs. Blue cloth with color pictorial paste downVery Rare To Find The Dust Jacket and it is in good condition.Wreck of the Grosvenor, The, by W. Clark Russell (1874). This story of the British merchant marine is notable amongst sea novels for its fidelity to the life, some phases of which it vividly portrays; and is the best by this author. The story is told by the second mate of the ship Grosvenor; and it relates the causes of dissatisfaction amongst the crew, and the harsh treatment of the men by a brutal and inhuman captain and chief mate. The troubles reach their climax in a mutiny, in which the captain and mate are killed by the crew. The mutineers finally desert the ship near the coast of America, and are lost in a gale. The ship also goes to the bottom; but the second mate and the few who were faithful to him are rescued when almost at the last gasp, by a passing steamer. The gallant rescue from a sinking vessel in mid-ocean, of a beautiful and wealthy young lady with her father, brings into the story the necessary element of romance, and provides the second mate with a satisfactory partner for life. The chief value of the book lies in the fact that it deals in a plain, straightforward manner, and without exaggeration, with some of the most glaring evils of the mercantile marine. Events like those recorded are familiar to every man who sailed the seas during the middle and even the latter part of this century, and they show to what an extent the power given by the law may be abused when placed in the hands of ignorant and brutal officers. The Wreck of the Grosvenor' is said to have been a powerful factor in reforming the laws relating to the merchant seamen in Great Britain. Apart from its humanitarian motives, it is interesting for the excellent descriptions of wind and weather, and of situations with which the sailor has to deal.
