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

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1923. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is a full British first edition, first printing six-volume set, published between 1923 and 1931. 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. Of The World Crisis, 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. 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 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. Unfortunately, the smooth navy cloth of the British first editions proved quite susceptible to wear, the contents prone to spotting and toning, and the final volume, The Eastern Front, was produced in smaller numbers, making it challenging to fill complete sets. This full first printing set ranges from good to near very good condition, respectable but showing some of the wear and faults endemic to the first edition. Shelf presentation is quite good, with nicely rounded spines, strong navy color, and bright gilt except for The Eastern Front, which shows a vertical dimple to the spine. The bindings generally show light overall scuffing and minor wear to extremities. The chief flaw that prevents us from grading most of the volumes in this set higher is spotting, heavy to most of the page edges and some prelims. The sole internal previous ownership marks in the set are the tiny sticker of a London bookseller (Myers & Co. of New Bond Street, London) affixed to the lower front pastedown of the first five volumes. The Aftermath is a high point in the set, of note for a particularly clean, tight, and square binding which shows none of the blistering of the cloth commonly seen in the first edition. The Eastern Front binding shows no internal previous ownership marks and all illustrations are present, as is the color folding map at p.368. Nonetheless, The Eastern Front does show some staining of the covers and evidence that a Boots Library sticker (we recognize the telltale shape and placement) was long ago removed from the lower front cover, corroborated by a Boots Library order form tipped in at p.17. For those unfamiliar, the Boots Book Lending service was established in 1898 at the instigation of Florence Boot. By 1903, there were 300 Boots stores across the country, of which 143 had a "Booklovers?' Library". Boots Library stressed circulation of clean books and books withdrawn from circulation were offered for sale. The Last Boots branches closed in 1966. Bibliographic reference: A69.2(I).b, A69.2(II).a, A69.2(III-1&2).a, A69.2(IV).b, A69.2(V).a; Woods/ICS A31(ab); Langworth p.105.

        THE GREAT AMERICAN NOVEL

      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.

        An astounding rarity: Einstein draws and signs one of his only known self-portraits on a postcard, which on the verso bears one of three known letters written from his only visit to Palestine in February 1923

      [near Jerusalem], [c. February 5, 1923]. 5.5" x 3.5" x 4.5". "Autograph Note Signed ""A Einstein"" on the verso of a 5.5"" x 3.5"" postcard bearing a rendering of the Red Star Liner Belgenland, [near Jerusalem, c. February 5, 1923], in German to Zionist leader Arthur Ruppin (1876-1943) appearing below an Autograph Note Signed by Ruppin's wife, Hanna Ruppin (""Hanna""). On the recto, Einstein has added a delightful self portrait above the image of the ship and signing it ""A. Einstein"" below, together with a portrait, also in his hand, of ""Frau Ruppin."" Light horizontal crease with a minor tear at left margin does not affect the drawings or Einstein's note on the verso, minor toned spot below the address line, else fine condition. Einstein writes to Ruppin in full (translated): ""To my dear Mr. Ruppin, We are having unforgettable days in Palestine. With the sun shining, in cheerful company. Your wife is standing next to me and looking at what I am writing about her. She is counting the days until you come back. Yours, A. Einstein"". (At the time, Ruppin had been on an extended fundraising trip in the Untied States, see Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle, December 15, 1922.) Above his note, Hanna Ruppin also writes her husband (translated): ""Dear Arthur, A pleasant tour of the city. Included is a picture by Prof. Einstein. Warm greetings, Hanna."" True to her word, on the recto, Einstein had drawn a diminutive self-portrait (signed below) together with a rendering of ""Frau Ruppin"". Above the drawings, he added the words, ""Jerusalem"", ""Heiligenschein"" (or ""halo"") with an arrow pointing to his image. Einstein's depiction of himself as a rotund, almost comical figure stands in contrast to the elegantly-dressed ""Frau Ruppin"" with her stylish hat, shapely figure and umbrella. A newly-minted celebrity following the reception of the 1921 Nobel Prize for physics, Einstein was on his return to Europe following a six-month lecture tour that took him as far as Japan in late 1922. He returned to Europe via Sri Lanka and the Suez Canal, stopping at Port Said on February 1, 1923 for two weeks in Palestine. Einstein made the stop at the invitation of Arthur Ruppin (1876-1943), an early Zionist thinker and leader. Academically trained in Germany in economics and law, he was awarded the Krupp prize in 1899 for his dissertation on Darwinism and industry. He joined the Zionist Organization in 1905 and acted as a land agent to purchase land in Palestine in order to facilitate the migration of European Jews. From 1933 to 1935, he headed the Jewish Agency which assisted German Jews fleeing Nazi persecution in settling in Palestine. At the time of Einstein's visit to Palestine, Ruppin was on an extended fundraising tour in the United States (Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle, Decmeber 15, 1922, p. 10). From Port Said, Einstein boarded a train for Jerusalem, where he was greeted not unlike a visiting head of state in light of his of recent scientific achievements, as well as his support of the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine. The first night, Einstein was the guest of an aide to the British High Commissioner for the Palestinian Mandate and he spent the next two days informally touring the Old City, as well as taking a trip to the Dead Sea via Jericho. February 5th marked the first day of his official tour organized by the Zionists. Writing in his travel diary, he recorded (translated): ""Tour of two Jewish colonial settlements west of Jerusalem, belonging to the city. The construction is carried out by Jewish workers' cooperative in which the leaders are elected. The workers arrive without specialized knowledge or expertise and achieve excellence after a short time. The leaders are paid no more than the workers."" According to corresponding sources, Einstein's first visit that morning was to the suburb of Beth Hakerem, in the west of Jerusalem, accompanied by Hanna Ruppin, together with Hadassah Samuel and Solomon Ginzburg. (see Ha'aretz and Doar Hayom, February 7, 1923, and Kark and Oren-Nordheim 2001, p. 169). On the afternoon of February 7th, Einstein delivered the inaugural lecture on the future sight of the Hebrew University on Mount Scopus, an institution in which he was intimately involved . There, he apologized for not being able to deliver his address in Hebrew and then proceeded to give a 90 minute talk (in perfect French) outlining his theory of relativity (Einstein, Collected Papers, Vol. 13, p. lxvi). After Jerusalem, Einstein travelled to Tel Aviv, where Mayor Meir Dizengoff bestowed him the honor of honorary citizenship, upon which he remarked ""I have already had the privilege of receiving an honorary citizenship of the City of New York, but I am tenfold happier to be a citizen of this beautiful Jewish town."" In his travel diary, Einstein recorded his favorable impressions of the young Jewish settlement: ""The accomplishments of the Jews in just a few years in this city arouses the highest admiration... An incredibly active people, our Jews."" (Travel Diary, February 8, 1923). His tour continued with visits to Haifa and Tiberious, and ending in Jerusalem before he departed via rail for Port Said the morning of February 14th. On February 16th, he embarked on the R.M.S. Ormuz for Marseilles. From there he travelled to Spain, delivering lectures in Barcelona and Madrid. Although Einstein would never again travel to Palestine, he continued to support efforts to promote Jewish settlement and especially the Hebrew University. Upon the death of Israel's first President, Chaim Weizmann, Abba Eban, the Israeli Ambassador to the United States, formally offered him the post. Although deeply moved by the offer, he did not believe himself qualified for such a position. (New York Times, Nov. 19, 1952, p. 1) Although Einstein used a postcard for the Red Star Line, Belgenland, he did not sail aboard the ship as it had yet to make its maiden voyage (April 1923). However, Einstein's last voyage to Europe was aboard the Belgenland in 1933. Arriving in Antwerp, he learned that Adolf Hitler had become Chancellor of Germany. Realizing that he could never reside in Germany again, he left, first for Great Britain, and then the United States, where he became a citizen in 1940. Extremely Rare. Letters written by Einstein during his only visit to Palestine are virtually unknown and no examples have appeared at auction for the past forty years. The Collected Papers of Albert Einstein record only two other pieces of manuscript (apart from his travel diary) written during this period: a February 11, 1923 ALS to Chaim Weizmann written from Haifa (location of original not presently known) and an ALS, February 14, 1923, written to Arthur S. Eddington (now part of the collections of the University of Cambridge). Although Einstein was known to accomplish drawings, signed self-portraits are virtually unknown. We are aware of only three other examples, none of which have ever sold at public auction (nor are we aware of a private sale of the same). "

Op. 21 Klavierauszug mit Text von Erwin Stein... [Dedication:] Der ersten Interpretin Frau Albertine Zehme in herzlicher Freundschaft... [Piano-vocal score]

      Wien... Leipzig: Universal=Edition [PN U.E. 7144]. 1923. Folio. Original publisher's printed wrappers. 1f. (title), [i] ("Vorwort" [preface] by Schoenberg), [i] (contents), [ii] (the 21 poems; with plate numbers "U.E. 5334. 5336." to first page), 5-67, [i] (blank) pp. Printed note to foot of title: "Copyright 1923 by Universal=Edition" and to lower left corner of first page of music: "Copyright 1922 by Universal-Edition." Upper wrapper browned, detached, stained at inner margin and frayed with slight loss; lower lacking. Light dampstaining to lower inner corners of first and last leaves. . First Edition of the piano-vocal score, either first or second issue. Rufer (Engl.) pp. 38-40. Ringer p. 314. Tetsuo Satoh pp. 13-16. According to the website of the Arnold Schönberg Center, Vienna, there were two issues published in Schoenberg's lifetime: May 30, 1923, and April 24, 1924. The issue of the present copy cannot be determined because the lower wrapper, with its dated publisher's catalogue, is lacking, and no further distinguishing criteria have been established. The two pages of text are taken from the full score (full size: U.E. 5334; study size: U.E. 5336) and bear corresponding plate numbers. Albertine Zehme (1857-1946), an actress born in Vienna and later active in Berlin, is now exclusively remembered as the person who commissioned and first performed Pierrot Lunaire. "Read the preface, looked at the poems. I am enthusiastic. A brilliant idea, entirely in my spirit. I would do it even without a fee." Website of the Arnold Schönberg Center, Vienna (Schoenberg in his diary). The poems are by the Belgian Albert Giraud (1860-1929) in the German translation by Erich Otto Hartleben (1864-1905).

        THE FAERIE QUEENE

      Chelsea: Ashendene Press, 1923. ONE OF 150 PAPER COPIES for sale, of a total of 180 (plus 12 copies printed on vellum) n. Hardcover. 438 x 311 mm (17 1/4 x 12 1/4"). 2 p.l., 406, [2] pp. ONE OF 150 PAPER COPIES for sale, of a total of 180 (plus 12 copies printed on vellum). Original calf-backed thick vellum boards, raised bands, gilt spine titling, untrimmed edges. In a (quite worn and faded) calf-backed clamshell box. Printer's device in colophon. Printed in red, black, and blue. Hornby 32; Franklin, pp. 144-46, 240-41. Just a hint of rubbing at spine ends, three corners lightly bumped, vellum with variations in color and grain (tending toward a pale orange, with a number of cloudy darker areas), otherwise a very fine copy, the wear to the binding negligible, the spine leather extremely bright, and pristine internally. Franklin says that, along with the "Minor Poems," this is the masterpiece among the impressive Ashendene folios. He says, "Spenser's large folios were the last in Subiaco, and the best. 'Monumental' suggests bombast, which would be quite wrong; these books become eloquent by small felicities and discretion." The leaves here are of a larger size than any previously used at the Press, and this fact, along with the clean gothic typeface and substantial binding, make the volume a pleasure to handle and read. The vellum used for this publisher's binding varies widely in how much it becomes discolored; the spine is almost never found in rich, lustrous brown (as here), and it is very often conspicuously worn.

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

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1923. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is a full British first edition, first printing six-volume set, published between 1923 and 1931. 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. Of The World Crisis, 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. 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 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. Unfortunately, the smooth navy cloth of the British first editions proved quite susceptible to wear, the contents prone to spotting and toning, and the final volume, The Eastern Front, was produced in smaller numbers, making it challenging to fill complete sets. This full first printing set ranges from good to near very good condition, respectable but showing some of the wear and faults endemic to the first edition. Shelf presentation is quite good, with nicely rounded spines, strong navy color, and bright gilt except for The Eastern Front, which shows a vertical dimple to the spine. The bindings generally show light overall scuffing and minor wear to extremities. The chief flaw that prevents us from grading most of the volumes in this set higher is spotting, heavy to most of the page edges and some prelims. The sole internal previous ownership marks in the set are the tiny sticker of a London bookseller (Myers & Co. of New Bond Street, London) affixed to the lower front pastedown of the first five volumes. The Aftermath is a high point in the set, of note for a particularly clean, tight, and square binding which shows none of the blistering of the cloth commonly seen in the first edition. The Eastern Front binding shows no internal previous ownership marks and all illustrations are present, as is the color folding map at p.368. Nonetheless, The Eastern Front does show some staining of the covers and evidence that a Boots Library sticker (we recognize the telltale shape and placement) was long ago removed from the lower front cover, corroborated by a Boots Library order form tipped in at p.17. For those unfamiliar, the Boots Book Lending service was established in 1898 at the instigation of Florence Boot. By 1903, there were 300 Boots stores across the country, of which 143 had a "BookloversÂ’ Library". Boots Library stressed circulation of clean books and books withdrawn from circulation were offered for sale. The Last Boots branches closed in 1966. Bibliographic reference: A69.2(I).b, A69.2(II).a, A69.2(III-1&2).a, A69.2(IV).b, A69.2(V).a; Woods/ICS A31(ab); Langworth p.105.

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

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1923. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is an exceptional full British first edition, first printing six-volume set, published between 1923 and 1931, a premium set difficult to assemble in such condition. 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. Of The World Crisis, 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. 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 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. Unfortunately, the smooth navy cloth of the British first editions proved quite susceptible to wear, the contents prone to spotting and toning, and the final volume, The Eastern Front, was produced in smaller numbers, making it challenging to fill complete sets. This full first printing set is exceptional, showing few of the faults so common to the edition. The six volumes range from near fine plus to fine condition. Shelf presentation is superlative, the spines uniformly clean and nicely rounded with strong color and vivid gilt. The bindings are all square and tight, with only trivial scuffing and wear to extremities. The contents are bright and crisp. Trivial spotting, notably light for the edition, appears confined to the page edges of the first five volumes and the prelims of the first two volumes. The same armorial bookplate is affixed to the front pastedowns of the first five volumes, indicating a lifelong mated set. Corroborating this indication is the same name inked on the front free endpapers of the first two volumes, dated ?"10th April, 1923.?" (the date of publication) in the 1911-1914 volume and ?"30th October, 1923.?" (again, the date of publication) in the 1915 volume. The Eastern Front in this set is of particular note, not only for the superlative condition of the binding, but for absolutely immaculate contents, beautifully bright and crisp, clearly unread, with no previous ownership marks and a pristine color folding map at p.368. The Aftermath suffers just a little of the blistering of the cloth endemic to the first edition (on the lower left front cover and a small spot on the rear cover fore edge), but more than compensates with an otherwise lovely square and tight binding and gorgeous spine presentation superior even to many jacketed copies. Bibliographic reference: A69.2(I).b, A69.2(II).a, A69.2(III-1&2).a, A69.2(IV).b, A69.2(V).a; Woods/ICS A31(ab); Langworth p.105.

        The Tomb Of Tut-ankh-amen (Tutankhamen).Discovered By The Late Earl Of Carnarvon And Howard Carter (First UK Issue With Original Unrestored Dustjackets) Very Scarce In The Original Jackets

      The First UK printings published by Cassell in 1923-33. 3 volumes, large octavo.The BOOKS are in Very Good+ condition.Original dark yellow cloth, titles gilt to spines and front boards, front boards decorated with gilt scarab on black panel, green and white patterned endpapers.Ownership inscriptions to the front pastedown and free endpaper of Vol.I:The first of the noted art historian Gerard Baldwin Brown and the second of the American Astoria architect John E.Wicks. Spines gently rolled, contents lightly foxed more-so to prelims in Vol.2.The WRAPPERS are all complete and are in VERY GOOD condition.Moderate edge-wear with a little loss in places - more pronounced at the lower edge of Vol 3. Closed tears to the upper front cover of Vol.2 and 3.All three wrappers have undergone NO restoration whatsoever and are the correct First Issue state and all are protected in removable Brodart archival covers.A very good set. Howard Carter's own account of the most spectacular archaeological discovery of the 20th century:'In the summer of 1922 Carter persuaded Carnarvon to allow him to conduct one more campaign in the valley. Starting work earlier than usual Howard Carter opened up the stairway to the tomb of Tutankhamun on 4 November 1922. Carnarvon hurried to Luxor and the tomb was entered on 26 November. The discovery astounded the world:a royal tomb,mostly undisturbed, full of spectacular objects. Carter recruited a team of expert assistants to help him in the clearance of the tomb,and the conservation and recording of its remarkable contents.On 16 February 1923 the blocking to the burial chamber was removed, to reveal the unplundered body and funerary equipment of the dead king.Unhappily, the death of Lord Carnarvon on 5 April seriously affected the subsequent progress of Carter's work.In spite of considerable and repeated bureaucratic interference, not easily managed by the short-tempered excavator, work on the clearance of the tomb proceeded slowly, but was not completed until 1932.Carter handled the technical processes of clearance, conservation, and recording with exemplary skill and care.This popular account of the work was published in three volumes, The Tomb of Tutankhamen (1923?"33),the first of which was substantially written by his principal assistant, Arthur C. Mace' (ODNB).Volume One with105 illustrations, Volume Two with 153 illustrations and Volume Three with 156 illustrations. These illustrations are in fact photographs by Harry Burton of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
