Genealogia deorum gentilium, known in English as On the Genealogy of the Gods of the Gentiles, is a mythography or encyclopedic compilation of the tangled family relationships of the classical pantheons of Ancient Greece and Rome, written in Latin prose in circa 1360 by the Italian author and poet Giovanni Boccaccio. The first printed edition was in Venice at the early date of 1472. By 1499, no fewer then eight editions had published, attesting to the popularity of the work. Ernest Hatch Wilkins was a respected authority on Italian literature. His teaching career began at Amherst as an instructor of Romance languages from 1900 to 1904, and continued at Harvard, where he taught from 1906 to 1912 and again from 1947 to 1950 as a visiting lecturer on Italian literature. In 1912 he went to the University of Chicago where he was successively Associate Professor and Professor of Romance languages until his move to Oberlin in 1927. From 1923 to 1926 he served the University as Dean of its College of Arts, Literature and Science Wilkins served as Oberlin College's seventh president from 1927 until his retirement in 1946. He authored several respected works on Dante, Petrarch and Papini. He was a corresponding member of the Accademia Della Crusca in Florence and was decorated with the Cavaliere della Corona d'Italia in 1920 for his international promotion of Petrarch and Dante.

        Jacob's Room [Rare Signed Copy]

      New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1923. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the first American edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original yellow cloth with a paper spine label, lacking the rare dust jacket, SIGNED AND CONTEMPORARILY DATED BY VIRGINIA WOOLF on the half-title as follows: "Virginia Woolf / Oct. 1923"; Virginia Woolf's third novel, in which she presents Jacob Flanders' life story from his childhood through his adulthood until he is killed during World War I. In this important modernist work, Woolf presents Jacob's life story primarily through various women in his life who give their own perspectives of him -- an experimental form and a dramatic departure from her more conventional prior novels. A mere 1,500 copies of the first American edition were printed. The book was first published in England in a Subscriber's edition of 40 copies (only a few of which are on the market), issued prior to the UK trade edition and for which Woolf filled in a preprinted Subscriber's slip with the book's title and the Subscriber's name. She also signed and dated the slips Oct. 1922. The Subscriber's slip, signed separately from the book, then would be tipped onto the book's front free endpaper. Here we have a Very Good copy of the first American edition, first printing. The book is mildly askew at the spine, shows light handling soil, moderate bumps and some wear to the board corners, some modest spotting to the boards, thin and low diagonal bump across rear board, light pushing to the spine ends, some wear to the spine label's edges, and a short marginal tear to the first page of text -- not affecting the text. As noted above, the Subscribers copies were signed on a slip which then was tipped onto the book's front free endpaper -- i.e. the book itself was not signed. In the copy presented here, however, Woolf has signed and dated the book itself. Copies of this important work actually signed by Woolf are extraordinarily scarce to the market. Furthermore, this copy has an excellent Provenance, having come from the Estate of decorated Naval veteran and noted Actor Douglas Fairbanks, whose bookplate resides on the book's front pastedown. A Very Good copy of an important Virginia Woolf novel, with the book itself SIGNED AND CONTEMPORARILY DATED BY VIRGINIA WOOLF. RARE INDEED.

        Love's Labour's Lost. PAUL SCOFIELD'S THEATRE COPY; STRATFORD 1946

      University Press, Cambridge, 1923. 8vo., First Edition thus, with a portrait frontispiece in photogravure (original tissue guard present) and title in red and black; original limp brown cloth, upper cover blocked in blind, backstrip lettered in gilt, covers very lightly creased else a very good, bright, clean copy, now housed in custom-made solander case. THIS IS PAUL SCOFIELD'S PERSONAL COPY, USED BY HIM IN PLAYING THE ROLE OF DON ADRIANO DE ARMADO IN PETER BROOK'S PRODUCTION AT THE SHKEAPEARE MEMORIAL THEATRE STRATFORD IN 1946. IT IS SIGNED AND DATED BY SCOFIELD ON FRONT FREE ENDPAPER AND BEARS NUMEROUS STAGE DIRECTIONS AND ANNOTATIONS IN HIS HAND. Peter Brook's production of Love's Labour's Lost was premiered in the 1946 Stratford Festival where it began its run on 26 April. Starring Hugh Griffith and David King-Wood, the cast included 24 year-old Scofield in the role of Don Adriano de Armado (the 'fantastical Spaniard') and Donald Sinden as Dumain. The cast also included Scofield's wife Joy Parker. ARMADO'S SCENES (MOST NOTABLY ACT I SCENE 2, ACT III SCENE 1 AND ACT V SCENE 2) ARE ANNOTATED WITH THE RELEVANT STAGE DIRECTIONS IN SCOFIELD'S HAND. Paul Scofield (1922-2008) was one of the most famous classical actors of his generation. Noted for his striking presence and distinctive delivery, he was often compared to Laurence Olivier. In a career spanning over six decades, he is probably best remembered for his Oscar-winning portrayal of Sir Thomas More in Fred Zinneman's 1966 film of Robert Bolt's play 'A Man for All Seasons'. Scofield later repeated this role on Broadway, where he won a Tony award - one of only eight actors to win both the Tony and the Oscar awards for the same role on stage and film. In 2004 a poll of actors of the Royal Shakespeare Company, including Ian McKellen, Janet Suzman, Donald Sinden, Ian Richardson, Antony Sher and Corin Redgrave, acclaimed Scofield's Lear as the greatest Shakespearean performance ever. Scofield declined a knighthood no fewer than three times, but was appointed CBE in 1956 and CH in 2001. A SPLENDID AND IMPORTANT PIECE OF THEATRE HISTORY, AND A NOTABLY PERSONAL ITEM OF MEMORABILIA FROM THE EARLY CAREER OF ONE OF THE GREATEST SHAKESPEAREAN ACTORS OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY. .

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

      Offered here is a full British first edition set of Winston Churchill's The World Crisis published 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 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 a sound and respectable full British first edition set in nearly very good overall condition, compromised only by minor aesthetic flaws. All six volumes are first printings, including the final and scarcest volume, The Eastern Front. Moreover, The Aftermath is the first state of the first printing (lacking the errata slip at p.9). All six bindings are tight, and square, with nicely rounded spines and strong spine gilt. All six bindings show some shelf wear, but apart from the typical light scuffing and wear to extremities, the only other two exterior flaws to report are some outward bowing to the 1915 volume boards and a Boots library sticker on the front cover of The Eastern Front. The Eastern Front volume is nonetheless notable for sharp corners and only very light external wear. Notably, the Aftermath does not suffer any of the blistering of the cloth to which this particular volume is prone. The contents of all six volumes are tight and complete. All maps, charts, etc. are intact, including the notoriously fragile color folding map at the end of The Eastern Front. Only the final two volumes bear previous ownership marks. The Aftermath has a small, decorative bookplate on the front pastedown and a gift inscription dated the year of publication on the ffep. The Eastern Front bears the aforementioned Boots Library sticker on the front cover, inked initials on the ffep, and a .75 inch black inked line on the bottom edge of the text block. Internally, spotting is light throughout the set, substantially confined to the prelims of each volume. All six volumes show modest spotting to the text block edges. Please note that this large set may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: A69.2(I-VI), Woods/ICS A31(ab), Langworth p.105.

        The World Crisis - full set of six first editions (mixed printings) with superlative shelf appearance

      Offered here is a beautiful, collector-worthy full first edition, mixed printing set of Winston Churchill's The World Crisis. This was Churchill's history of the First World War, published between 1923 and 1931. Collectors will note that the U.S. is the true first edition, as U.S. publication preceded the British. 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 six volume masterwork far exceeds this purpose. This is an excellent, collector grade set of first editions featuring a mix of first, second, and third printings. The 1916-1918, Volumes I & II are first edition first printings. The 1911-1914, 1915, and The Aftermath volumes are first edition, second printings. The Unknown War is a first edition, third printing. This is the very best shelf presentation we have seen for unjacketed copies - bright, uniform, and showing virtually no wear. The russet boards and spines, so prone to sunning, are all clean and bright with unfaded color, bright gilt, and nothing more than light shelf wear. The contents of all six volumes are truly crisp and clean with no spotting and no inscriptions. If these books were ever read, they were read very gently. Searching for flaws, we note two trivial white marks on the spine of the 1915 volume, a corner bump on 1916-1918 Part 2, and some whitish marks on 1916-1918 Part 1 confined primarily to the covers. Bibliographic Reference: Cohen A69.1(I).e, A69.1(II).c, A69.1(III-1).a, A69.1(III-2).a, A69.1(IV).b, A69.1(V).c; Woods/ICS A31(aa), Langworth p.103.

        ICH UND DU

      Leipzig: Insel-Verlag, 1923 Buber, Martin. ICH UND DU. Leipzig. Insel-Verlag, 1923. 8vo. 137, (3) pp. True First Edition. Publisher's brownish cardboard binding lettered black & red the upper cover & lettered black on the spine. [Extra date neatly penned on title page "18.XII 1932" & "Kh"]. A near fine example in the exceedingly rare original plain dustwrapper printed black on the spine in very good condition with several modest chips. Slight darkening at the top edge of the upper cover, head & heel mildly bumped otherwise a very collectible copy of this Buber masterwork one of the most important books of the last century. Martin Buber, [1878-1965], Austrian-born Jewish Philosopher, Story Teller, Theologian - best known for his philosophy of dialogue, a form of religious existentialism centered on the distinction between the I-Thou relationship and the I-It relationship. Ich und Du, is today considered a landmark of twentieth-century intellectual history. Buber was strongly moved by the writings of Frederich Nietzsche and Ich und Du united the seminal existentialists themes of modern German thought with the traditional Judeo-Christian thinking. In Ich und Du, Buber presents the view of a world in which human beings can enter into relationships using their innermost complete self to form true partnerships beyond the notion and incorrect view that the universe is merely the object of our senses and experiences. "Buber argues for an ethic that does not use other people (or books, or trees, or God), and does not consider them objects of one's own personal experience. Instead, Buber writes, we must learn to consider everything around us as "You" speaking to "me," and requiring a response. Buber goes on to demonstrate how these interhuman meetings are a reflection of the human meeting with God. For Buber, the essence of biblical religion consists in the fact that -- regardless of the infinite abyss between them -- a dialogue between man and God is possible. Ecumenical in its appeal, Ich und Du nevertheless reflects the profound Talmudic tradition from which it has emerged". Excellent copy indeed. $3550. 1st Edition.

        Science of Being

      New York: J.F. Tapley, 1923. 331 Pages. Three line six word inked gift inscription plus date (1967) on front endpaper. Four pencil (erasable) page numbers on back endpaper. No other marks or stamps to this tight, square book. Very light (barely noticeable) wrinkling to right side corners (about 1 inch) of first 30 pages. My guess is that this wrinkling was caused by page turning. No other defects noted. The paper used is of Ivory color India Bible. This was the first time in the history of paper manufacturing in the United States that such a paper was made. It is extremely light and thin, of the highest grade with great wearing qualities. Well-known English artist, Malcolm Thurburn, was commissioned to make the lettering, ornamentations, and the illustrations for the title pages, which are individual for each of the seven lessons. The emblem of the Science of Being is stamped in pure gold on the cover, and all materials used in the making of the book are of the highest obtainable quality. Gold, which represents the pure Mental Ray, was taken as the basis for the color scheme of the book. In its most condensed shade of dark brown, it is used in the binding and in the general print of the book. In its golden shade it is used to emphasize important sentences. The glittering golden print produces a very deep impression on the sub-consciousness of the reader, acting as a luminous sign, which engraves itself in fiery letters upon the mind. Page edges are also in gold color. Everyone in possession of this book will soon discover that merely to possess it is to have established a connecting link between Universal Life Energy and the individual who owns the book, or the house or office where it is kept. It is advisable to carry the book with oneself whenever a business transaction or any important step is contemplated. The book will always act as an inspiring, harmonizing and protecting agent because of its actual connection with the pure magnetic vibrations of Universal Life Energy. -- This from the laid in brochure titled Information for the Reader. The three laid in information pamphlets and the book are inside the original gold 7 1/4 x 4 3/8 inch storage box.The box itself is intact and shows some light wear. This is a very rare original title in surprisingly good condition that is evidence of careful storage. Additional scans available on request. Baron Eugene Fersen was born in 1873 in St. Petersburg to Marie the Grand Duchess of Russia. HIs grandfather was King Alexander II of Russia. His uncle was Leo Tolstoy and his half-sister was Queen Maria of Romania who was the grand-daughter of Queen Victoria of England. Eugene and his mother came to the US in 1901 where they remained under suspicion for radical religious thinking up through World War I and they became American citizens in 1923. Fersen continued his teaching until his death in Seattle in 1956. The 'Lightbearers' continue Fersen's work to this day.. First Edition. Hard Back. Very Good/No Dust Jacket As Issued. 4" x 7".

        NEW HAMPSHIRE A Poem with Notes and Grace Notes

      New York:: Henry Holt,. 1923 [1924]. First edition, fourth printing, November, 1924. INSCRIBED, "To Walter King Stone / in appreciation of one of the finest / of the pictures." Undated but inscribed in 1932. Above his inscription Frost has transcribed the title and first 10 lines of the poem "The Grindstone," which made its first book appearance herein. Frost changed the last words in the fifth line from "they were lent," to "they may have lent"; a change not mentioned in "The Poetry of Robert Frost" edited by Eward Connery Lathem, which lists all changes and emendations in Frost's poems. Stone--a painter, and book and magazine illustrator of the period--sent Frost five paintings. In exchange, Frost inscribed five books with a poem. Copy of Frost's letter transmitting the five books is included, stating, in part, "I've got these pictures up---and I don't see how you are going to get them back except by process of law or by appeal to something in me that may not exist." The book has minor wear on the corners, otherwise very good, lacking dust jacket. Stones attractive bookplate on front pastedown and newspaper photo of Frost tipped to first blank page.
