        The Prophet

      New York: Knopf. 1923. First printing. Hardcover. Very Good+. 1923, True first printing. Hardcover, 8vo., original black cloth with title and design in gilt. 107 pp., with 12 illustrations in b&w. Very Good+, no dust jacket. Slight dulling to the spine cloth, and the gilt lettering of 'Knopf' is rubbed; also slight wear at the spine ends and corners. Barely noticeable lean to the spine. There is a small area of browning at the top margin of pages 32 and 33. Clean, unmarked text. Now housed in a custom clamshell slipcase. A rare first edition of this immensely popular book. Digital images available upon request. The book was published in an ambitious print run of 2,000, but only sold a little over 1,100 of them in the first year. After that, sales exploded: double the next year, double that in the following year, and on to 2014, with the book now in its 165th printing and with sales topping 100 million in total. The masterpiece by this Lebanese author, who lived 1883-1931, is a series of 26 prose poetry essays in which Almustafa, the prophet, who is on his way to board a ship that will take him to his homeland after years of living in the fictional town of Orphalese, tarries to speak to a group of people of the lessons he has learned while living abroad. It is actually a wonderful book, with a light, optimistic wisdom to it that bears traces of the dervishes, of Rumi and of Omar Khayam.

      [Paris: Contact Editions, 1923].. Pale blue printed wrappers. Probably rescued from either a binding or mishap by an earlier owner: rebacked, with matching paper (but discolored along the lower joint with the rear wrapper), edges moderately smoke darkened, a few incidental creases, occasional shallow discolorations along the extreme lower edges, wrapper fold-ins trimmed away; a sound survivor. First edition of the author&#39;s first book -- although only the sequential nature of the volumes in the Three Mountains Inquest series prevented >in our time< from preceding it. One of 300 copies printed in Dijon by Maurice Darantiere. Six of the poems had seen prior publication in POETRY (Jan. 1923). The short stories -- "Up in Michigan," "Out of Season," and "My Old Man" -- are here first published. Obviously not a copy for the fastidious, but offered at a modest percentage of the price for a very good copy. HANNEMAN 1a.

Attractive contemporary private owner&#39;s bookplate affixed to the. front paste-down.

A superior copy of one the most lavish. children&#39;s fantasies of the period. In a custom quarter maroon. leather slipcase. (#119415). First edition, British issue. Timlin (1892-1943), a UK-born artist and architect of note, illustrated books on South Africa (where he resided from 1912) and achieved success as a magazine illustrator, his etchings being regarded as among the best produced in the United Kingdom. THE SHIP THAT SAILED TO MARS, Timlin&#39;s "only fiction, is more fantasy than science fiction, though it does describe in glowing detail the fitting up of a spaceship and its trip to Mars. But Timlin&#39;s astonishingly evocative illustrations to the text, for which the original quarto edition of the book is now heavily collected, strongly underline the surreal nature of the tale." - Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (1993), p. 1230. Only 2000 copies were printed (including 250 copies prepared for distribution in America under the Stokes imprint). Harrap&#39;s remaining stock of the book and the original drawings were destroyed by enemy action in early 1941 and the first edition is quite scarce. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy Volume II, p. 109.

"Le 27 octobre 1926 ... à Jules Bosmant avec tous mes remerciements pour son activité dévouée et sa fraternelle "activité" dans l'Art d'aimer ses amis .-: deux activités qui n'en font qu'une. de coeur, Gabrielbelot. Jules BOSMANT fut le Conservateur en Chef des Musées de Liège et fut l'initiateur et l'expert lors de la vente à Lucerne, à la galerie FISCHER, le 30 juin 1939. Hitler fit organiser cette vente d'oeuvres qu'il considérait comme "dégénérées". Ainsi 9 chefs-d'oeuvre furent acquis par la Ville de Liège. ... "Gabriel Belot (Paris 1882- 1962), artiste du livre à la personnalité fort attachante et dont on ne parle plus guère, de nos jours. Le travail de Gabriel Belot est original et intéressant en ceci que l?artiste graveur a non seulement illustré avec talent de nombreux livres mais aussi créé des livres dans leur intégralité : écriture, illustration, tirage. On peut parler d?un « homme-orchestre » du livre. Il s?agit là d?un homme orchestre de talent, dont la création n?est nullement cacophonique mais au contraire toute empreinte d?harmonie et où tous les éléments du livre vibrent en accord."

        Winston Churchill on the cover of TIME Magazine, 14 April 1923, Vol. I, No.7

      9 East 40th Street, New York: TIME, Incorporated, 1923. 1st Edition. Paperback. Very good. Here is the very first appearance of Churchill on the cover of TIME Magazine 14 April 1923, Vol.I, No.7. In the issue, Churchill&#39;s first volume of The World Crisis is reviewed. TIME was then a brand new publication with small circulation; the very first issue had been published just over a month before on 3 March 1923. This issue is of course is a neat piece of history. But more to the point for collectors, this is the exceedingly scarce undisputed prize among Churchill magazine covers. At the time, Churchill was briefly out of office, having lost his Dundee seat in 1922. In 1924 he would rejoin the Conservatives, be reelected to Parliament, and become Chancellor of the Exchequer. In the meantime, 1923 saw publication of his first World Crisis volume, which is reviewed in this issue of TIME. From the p.9 article: "...Now on the outside of politics, Winston Churchill gives full vent to his literary genius..." This copy is in exceptional condition - amazingly clean, bright, and complete with sharp corners and no markings or spotting. But there is one significant flaw. The covers have separated from the contents. To make a neat, color-matching repair, someone neatly trimmed a .75 inch vertical strip from the edge of page 23 (not affecting any text) and glued it to the spine as a nearly invisible reinforcement. This reinforcement runs the vertical length of the spine, is .25 inch wide on the front cover, and is of course absolutely identical in color and appearance to the cover color. It must be searched for to detect. This is the only detraction. In all other respects, this is a beautifully preserved, extremely fresh copy of an extravagantly rare Churchill cover.

      London: Humphrey Milford, Oxford University Press, 1923. First UK edition. 102pp. Duodecimo [17 cm] Black wrappers with red stamped titles to the front panel. Very good. Spine gently faded. Name in ink at the head of the title page. A blank label has been pasted over the cast list on the verso of the title page (we have noticed this on all of the copies we have handled). & First English printing of this play that popularized the word "Robot." Translated from the Czech by P. Selver and adapted for the English Stage by Nigel Playfair. According to Bleiler "the present-day reader&#39;s interest in the play centers on Capek&#39;s creation of the robot. Taken from the Czech word &#39;robota&#39;, meaning "forced labor," the word "robot" was invented by Josef Capek, and it has come to have a far more precise meaning than either brother can have intended. In the play the robots are not mechanical, metallic creatures, but are instead androids - living, organic simulacra - indistinguishable at first (and second) glance from humans. Capek&#39;s robots represent, at times rather loosely and inconsistently, a complex or symbolic meanings: the threatening aspects of the industrial dehumanization of the work force, as well as the pathos that surrounds the victims of rationalization and the assembly line. Through this ambivalence, which is not always convincing in its mixture of reductive caricature and sentimental special pleading, the image of the robot represents the logical outcome, for the helpless masses, of living and working in a world where human autonomy is not only superfluous but also directly counterproductive." Bleiler p.585

        Harmonium (First Edition, first issue, signed)

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1923. First Edition. First Edition. First issue binding, in patterned paper-covered boards, with blue, red, yellow, and white checker pattern, dark blue cloth spine with yellow paper title label, white endpapers and red topstain. SIGNED by the author on the half-title page. & & Wallace Stevens&#39; signature ranks among the scarcest of twentieth century American poets, owed to his general reclusiveness and the low limitations on most of his limited editions. "Harmonium" was the poet&#39;s first collection, published when he was 44 years old, after almost a decade of appearances only in magazines. Some of his most famous poems are included here, such as "The Emperor of Ice-Cream," a poem on the banality of funeral ceremonies, "The Snow Man," and "Sunday Morning." & & Very Good plus lacking the scarce dust jacket. Slight spine lean, even toning to the spine and the title label, slight paper loss at the title label and extremities, and an owner name in black ink on the front endpaper. A bright, clean example of the rare first issue, published in a limitation of 500 copies, one of the most important poetry titles of the twentieth century. In a custom clamshell box. Edelstein A1.a.
