        The World Crisis, a full set of six Canadian first editions

      Toronto: Macmillan, 1923 . First edition, only printing. Hardcover. This is a full set of Canadian editions of Churchill's acclaimed history of the First World War. Churchill's history - which he titled The World Crisis - was published in six volumes between 1923 and 1931. Of The World Crisis, Churchill bibliographer Frederick Woods wrote: "The volumes contain some of Churchill's finest writing, weaving the many threads together with majestic ease, describing the massive battles in terms which fitly combine relish of the literary challenge with an awareness of the sombre tragedy of the events." Churchill was in a special position to write this history, having served both in the Cabinet and on the front. He served as First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 until 1915. After the failure in the Dardanelles and the slaughter at Gallipoli Churchill was scapegoated and forced to resign. He spent his political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Before war's end, Churchill was exonerated and rejoined the Government, but the stigma would linger. Churchill may have meant for his history of the First World War to clear his name, but his masterwork - originally published in six volumes between 1923 and 1931 - far exceeds this purpose. The Canadian issue of Churchill's World Crisis was published in Canada from the American plates and is very similar in appearance, with nearly identical bindings apart from “Macmillan” instead of “Scribners” on the lower spines and of course the Canadian publisher on the title pages. Canadian editions are considerably more scarce than either their British or U.S. first edition counterparts. Assembling a full set of Canadian first editions has become quite challenging. This set features volumes varying from near-fine to very good minus. U.S. first printings of the 1911-1914 volume proved quite susceptible to spine sunning and blackening of the gilt and the same was true of the Canadian first edition. This Canadian Volume I suffers the inevitable spine fading, but the gilt has not blackened and remains clearly legible. The remaining five books in the set all feature exceptional spine color, with rich, unfaded spines and bright gilt. The fifth book, The Aftermath, is noteworthy for retaining the original front and rear faces of the dust jacket, which have been laid in at the title page. We note only minor wear to extremities throughout the set, with a tiny tear at the head of Volume I. The contents of all six volumes are clean. We find no spotting. Age-toning varies from light to moderate. The sole previous ownership marks we find are a name inked on the 1911-1914 front free endpaper, a gift inscription on The Unknown War half title, and a few stray ink marks on the blank verso of The Unknown War frontispiece. While The Unknown War is a notably bright, square and tight copy with the rear color folding map intact, we note that the rear folding map has some wear to the edge where it was previously slightly misfolded and protruded from the text block, the untrimmed page edges were slit roughly when first opened, leaving a little tearing to the fore edges of pages 11-14, and the half title is torn at the gutter, laid into the book.

        Girl from Hollywood

      1923 - BURROUGHS, Edgar Rice. The Girl from Hollywood. New York: The Macaulay Company, (1923). 12mo, original pictorial red cloth, original dust jacket. $3200.First edition, second printing, of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ most personal novel, wryly inscribed by him to collector W.E. Ambler.Burroughs’ “autobiographical novel about a California ranch family ruined by booze, dope and movieland promiscuity,” is a “facinating cultural document… Burroughs never intended The Girl from Hollywood as a roman à clef, though there was no mistaking certain connections. Rancho del Ganado is Tarzana to the last detail… Just as explicitly, Colonel Pennington embodies Burroughs’ habits and ideals… and to a certain extent, the Pennington children are a reflection of Burroughs’ worry that his own daughter would be mesmerized by Hollywood and that his sons would grow bored with Tarzana… In its topicality, The Girl from Hollywood bears a certain likeness to The Beautiful and Damned, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel of that same year” (Taliaferro, 18, 179-80). “Positive identification of the first printing has not been documented” (Currey, 71). This copy probable second printing (Currey text B), with frontispiece caption omitting the words “he said;” unworn lettering on copyright page and pages 9 and 195; light green design and lettering on rough, woven red cloth (Currey binding A). Second printing dust jacket with coat-of-arms publisher’s device at spine foot. First serialized in Munsey’s Magazine, June-November 1922. Zeuschner 165. Inscribed by Burroughs to Cleveland book, letter and autograph collector Judge W.E. Ambler. Burroughs’ inscription reads, in full: “To Judge W.E. Ambler. I congratulate you upon the selection of your hobbyâ€"in that, it does not necessitate the reading of fiction beyond the fly-leafâ€"this classic, of course, excepted. Cordially, Edgar Rice Burroughs. Tarzana Ranch, Jan. 21, 1924.” With Ambler’s owner signature. Typewritten transcript of inscription and biography of Burroughs affixed to front pastedown.Scattered light foxing. Short marginal closed tear to page 83-84, not affecting text. Bright dust jacket lightly worn. An about-fine inscribed copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Einband und Titel zeichnete Emil Praetorius \" sowie kalligraphischer Widmung auf dem Vorsatz: \"Zum 20-jährigen Bestehen der Katholischen Schulorganisation Deutschlands ihrem weitschauenden Gründer und zielbewussten Führer Altreichskanzler Dr. Wilhelm Marx in dankbarer Verehrung die Katholische Schulorganisation in Bayern, Landesverband der katholischen Elternvereinigungen Bayerns, Schwerd / Zinkl\". - \"Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Bei Dünndruckpapier werden die Lagen zum Heften leicht vorgeritzt. Ein Einsägen oder gar Einraspeln der Bünde findet nicht statt. Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Zum Kapital wird kein schlappes maschinengewebtes Bändchen verwendet, sondern das Kapital wird von Hand mit dem Buchblock umstochen, gibt dadurch dem Rücken einen festen Abschluß und bietet zugleich dem späteren Ledereinschlag (\"Häubchen\") die Unterlage. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können.\" Aus einem alten Prospekt von Richard Hönn, ehemals Handbinderei des Verlages Albert Langen, Werkstatt für feine Buchbinder- und Lederarbeiten in München. - EA, erste Auflage in guter Erhaltung (einige Feuchtigkeitsflecken am Unterrand, Buchrücken durch Lichteinwirkung ausgebleicht, sonst gut). - Lederausgabe, Lederband, Meistereinband, Liebhaber-Einband, Luxuseinband, Handeinband, Kunstbuchbinderei, Prachtausgabe, Kunstband, Frieda Thiersch, illustrierte Bücher Versand D: 5,90 EUR Lederausgabe, Lederband, Meistereinband, Liebhaber-Einband, Luxuseinband, Handeinband, Kunstbuchbinderei, Prachtausgabe, Kunstband, Frieda Thiersch, illustrierte Bücher

        LAUGHING ANNE

      1923. [1 of 200 signed copies] A Play. London: [Morland Press,] 1923. Original full limp vellum, in the original green cloth box with spine label. First Edition, being one of 200 copies numbered and signed by Conrad (this being #177) -- issued as the fourth title in the Morland Press's "The Vine Books" series. This was Conrad's dramatization of his tale "Because of the Dollars," which had been published in WITHIN THE TIDES (1915). The play was never produced on the stage; his other two plays, "The Secret Agent" and "One Day More," were also unsuccessful.~LAUGHING ANNE has a highly unusual binding of full limp vellum, simply printed in gilt on its spine. This is an unusually clean, fine copy, with very little of the warping that typically afflicts full-vellum-without-boards. Included is the original clamshell case of green cloth with spine label, in very good condition (this case is actually quite scarce, because warping vellum does not like to be so confined). At 200 copies only, this is one of the most severely-limited signed Conrad editions. Cagle A59 (the last item included in Cagle).

        THE SECRET AGENT. A Drama in Three Acts

      1923 - London: Privately Printed for Subscribers only by T. Werner Laurie, 1923. Original parchment-backed boards with spine label, with dust jacket. First Published Edition, which is to say the Limited Edition -- being one of 1000 numbered copies signed by Conrad (this being #475). This was Conrad's dramatization of his 1907 novel of the same name, preceded by a 52-copy private issue (". in Four Acts", Canterbury 1922). For this signed edition, it was decided to combine the short third act into the second (as Act II Scene III): thus the reduced number of acts. The play had been a flop; Conrad later observed, "I was amused by their [the critics'] touching unanimity in damning the play. It was like a chorus of parrots.".~This volume is in fine condition, with the duplicate spine label still bound in at the rear; the dust jacket is very good-plus (a few short tears, one small chip at an upper corner of the spine, spine sunned as always).

First edition. In publisher's illustrated wrappers, printed in green and black. 215, (1) p. Thoroczkai-Wigand's rare work on gardens, gardening and garden architecture, its history and design. Ede Toroczkai-Wigand (1869-1945) was a Hungarian architect and designer of decorative art. The thoughts of John Ruskin and the Arts and Crafts Movement had a major influence on him. He had the idea that art, architecture, folk customs and language is a complex structure and this complexity or "holism" reflecting in the unique character of his works. Beside being a prolific architect and designer, who was awarded at many international exhibitions (Paris, 1900; Torino, 1902; St. Louis, 1904), Toroczkai-Wigand published bibliophilic books like this piece, partly on his works and partly about the art, architecture and the folk tales of the Székelys in Transylvania. In these publications he combined the content and the typography into a special unity, in the manner of the unique Transylvanian Art Nouveau style. With a little loss to tail of spine. A small tear to front cover and first few pages. Otherwise a fine copy. In publisher's illustrated wrappers, printed in green and black [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Galimathias

      New York: Broom, [1923] - The first book by this interesting literary figure whose chief works were in biography and economic history, but who is perhaps best revered for his bohemian memoir, LIFE AMONG THE SURREALISTS. His highly experimental poetry, influenced by his time hobnobbing with Dadaists in Paris, was published in a series of modernist magazines, including Broom, which he edited with Alfred Kreymborg. His collection of poems was published in an edition of 250 copies on Japan paper; this is #6. Some nibbling to the edge of the spine near the title, chip to corner of front cover, date (1923) to front endpaper. Otherwise a very good copy of a very rare book. [Attributes: First Edition]

Schauer II, 43; Rodenberg 244. - Ausgabe in Ganzpergament-Einbänden; jeweils Nr. 836 von 1000 handschriftlich nummerierten Exemplaren (GA 1100). "Als fünftes (und sechstes) Buch in der von Marcus Behmer gezeichneten Schrift nach dessen Plan und Angaben bei Otto von Holten zu Berlin gedruckt" (Impressum). Sehr schöner Druck auf an zwei Seiten unbeschnittenem Bütten. Die Illustrationen - 48 Holzschnitte für die Ilias und 54 für die Odyssee - schuf Ludwig von Hofmann (1861-1945). Hofmann war u.a. einer der führende Köpfe der Bewegung "Neues Weimar" um Harry Graf Kessler und Henry van de Velde. Er hatte erst spät in seiner künstlerischen Karriere (1919) mit der Illustration von Bücher begonnen und Marcus Behmer 1921 bei der gemeinsamen Arbeit an "Das Hohelied Salomos" kennen und schätzen gelernt. Für die Gestaltung von Ilias und Odyssee arbeiteten sie auf das engste zusammen. "Marcus, der Schriftgestalter, und Ludwig, der Zeichner, behandelten das Problem der Buchillustration in kongenialer Weise: als Verschmelzung zweier Künste, (.). Mit der Schrift Marcus Behmers zusammen entstand die buchtechnisch-bibliophile Einheit, bei der jede Zeile berechnet wurde, dazu Kopfstücke, Hauptbild und Schlußstücke eines jeden Gesanges in der erwünschten Tonart und Proportion. Da mußte jede Geste sehr lebendig, natürlich und genau überlegt sein." (Eleonore v. Hofmann: Im Kreis der Elite. Persönliche Erinnerungen an Ludwig von Hofmann. In: Speculum Artis Nr. 6 (1963), S. 28). - Einige der etwas weiter vorstehenden Büttenränder angestaubt, sonst schönes Exemplar.
