        [PETROV-VODKIN] Samarkandiya: Iz putevykh nabroskov 1921 g. [i.e. Samarkand. Travel Notes from 1921]

      St. Petersburg: Akvilon, 1923. 49, [7] pp.: ill. 27x22 cm. In publisher's color lithographed illustrated wrappers. Rubbings and small tears, edges are chipped, tears and small losses of the spine, owner's signature on p.1 and markings on the back endpaper, rare foxing of the wrappers, very light stain of the inner side of the lower end of the wrappers. Otherwise a very good clean copy. 1 of 1000 copies. First edition. Kuz'ma Sergeevich Petrov-Vodkin (1878-1939) was a major modern Russian and Soviet painter, teacher and writer. Being mostly a painter he was experimenting with literature during all of his life. In 1921 Petrov-Vodkin travelled to Turkestan (Uzbekistan) with an expedition organized by Academy of History of Material Culture to study architectural monuments. He was amazed by the colors of Samarkand, called it ''the land of turquoise revelation'', and the result came in a form of 'Samarkand series' which is regarded by many as the acme of his artistic career. This book was compiled from his observations and on-the-spot sketches. Today this journal is also a very useful account of ways of his inspiration which led to creating more than 20 pieces of his famous art. These illustrated travel notes were printed on coated paper (wrappers of a cream thicker paper). For this edition the artist created 22 ink drawings (pen and brush): 14 full page images, 7 headpieces for every chapter, 1 tailpiece. Illustrations are black and white except the front cover with colored illustration - a young man in front of Central Asian ornament. Book's composition and typography is an example of avant-garde graphics. The combination of the colorful and visual text with monochrome illustrations reflects the combination of the artistic expression and aloofness at the same time which brings these illustrations closer to artists's pictorial art in which he famously used the traditions of Russian iconography. This edition was printed by Akvilon, a very important bibliophile private press of the 1920s. Akvilon published only 22 books of high art and printing standards and of small runs (500-1500). MoMA. 496. WorldCat located 6 copied in US libraries.

        The Love Poems of John Donne

      Soho: Nonesuch Press, 1923. Small quarto. (6), xxiii, 91, (7)pp. From an edition of 1,200 copies, this is one of twenty ad personam copies, specially bound. This is the first book of Francis Meynall's Nonesuch Press. Meynall, along with his wife, Vera, who selected and edited Donne's text for this production, and David Garnett, founded the Press in order to demonstrate that "mechanical means could be made to serve fine ends." Although the Fell type for this edition was hand-set by Meynall, it was printed on a commercial press at Oxford. This enabled Nonesuch to offer handsome limited editions for about half the price of contemporary private press books, such as Golden Cockerel. This book was a commercial success for Nonesuch, selling out the edition within the year, helped along by favorable magazine reviews by T. S. Eliot. In publisher's special binding of full stained vellum, decorated in gilt. Nearly imperceptible fading to spine, otherwise fine. Bookplate of Sir Frederick Richmond, for whom this copy was printed. Sir Richmond was a noted collector of early needlework.

        The Mathematical Theory of Relativity.

      Cambridge: University Press, 1923. - First Edition. ix, 247, [1] pp. Original cloth, large 8vo. Very Good. 'In 1923 came Eddington's great book, Mathematical Theory of Relativity. Einstein said in 1954 that he considered this book the finest presentation of the subject in any language, and of its author he said, 'He was one of the first to recognize that the displacement field was the most important concept of general relativity theory, for this concept allowed us to do without the inertial system.' In this book Eddington gave the substance of the original papers of Einstein, deSitter, and Weyl but departed from their presentations to give a 'continuous chain of deduction,' including many contributions of his own, both in interpretation and in derivation of equations. With intuitive brilliance he modified Weyl's affine geometry of world structure by means of a new mathematical procedure, parallel displacement, which in itself was a not unimportant contribution to geometry' (D.S.B. IV: 281). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Although Bill Bird's Three Mountains Press' In Our Time was contracted earlier, Robert McAlmon's Contact Editions book was published and released earlier. Limited to 300 copies only. This copy inscribed by Hemingway on the front endpaper "This book is the property of James Cowan--he is not responsible for it--nor did he buy it. It was presented to him by the author--Ernest Hemingway" Cowan was a fellow reporter for the Toronto Star newspaper, for which Hemingway also worked. Included also is a sheaf of correspondence between former owners and James Cowan attesting to it's history and authenticity. Also included a dealer's catalogue in which this book was listed for sale back in late thirties or forties. This copy wrapped in glassine which is contemporary but not original. Wear and a few tears to the extremities but a particularly fine example of a fragile book, otherwise a very good copy. A great Toronto copy of an essential item in the Hemingway canon.

The Canadian Jewish Review of June 8, 1923, reported that ?at the Primrose Club last Tuesday, the Y. M. And Y. W. H. A.

The best feature of the evening was the presentation of the Griff Clark Trophy to the Y. W. H. A. Basket ball team, champions of the city. ? Text on reverse. Quite probably the only explicitly Jewish women?s sports team featured on a mass-market trading card in the 1920s, and probably the first ever. Light wear, photo is clear, Good Condition.

        The Golden Mean and Other Poems.

      NP [Nashville, TN] 1923. - 1-200 copies numbered and SIGNED by Wills and Tate, this being No. 115. 8vo. 32 pp. Original stiff tan stapled wrappers with black letterpress title embossed on front cover. This book, now of noted rarity, was self-published by the authors in Nashville. It is Allen Tate's first book. Both authors were active members of the Southern or Fugitive Agrarians and contributed to I'll Take My Stand: The South and the Agrarian Tradition. The Golden Mean was written as a parody of T. S. Eliot's The Wasteland. The cover of the book has some toning around the extremities, a very small 1/2" tear top of spinal fold and very light edge wear. Contents bright. Overall a very good plus to near fine example of a fragile production. Seldom coming on the market, this is a rare book. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
