        The Sea-Hawk (Sea Hawk)

      Houghton Mifflin Company Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company. 1923. Reprint edition, but the first edition by this publisher. Barely noticeable abrasions to two preliminary pages else about fine in a bright dustwrapper which has undergone professional restoration, primarily at the folds and extremities, and appears fine. Along with Captain Blood and Scaramouche, one of a trio of swashbuckling novels that helped to define the genre. This was the basis for one of the great silent adventure films, directed in 1924 by Frank Lloyd and featuring Milton Sills as the Sea Hawk, with Enid Bennett, Lloyd Hughes, Wallace MacDonald, Marc McDermott, and Wallace Beery. Also well-known is the 1940 Michael Curtiz swashbuckler with Errol Flynn, which kept the Sabatini title but used an original story-line loosely based on the exploits of Sir Francis Drake and modified to draw obvious parallels to England on the verge of WWII. An early copy of a desirable title almost never seen in jacket. .

        The Arrival

      [Kimberley, South Africa, sometime before, 1923]. Original watercolour on paper (image 270 × 247 mm; framed 615 × 540 mm). Together with two original leaves of accompanying calligraphic text: the contents list for "Part three: Mars", and the descriptive text to accompany this plate (text in black with initial letters and decorations in blue). Three items individually matted, glazed and framed. Born in Northumberland, Timlin emigrated to South Africa, where he studied art and practised as an architect. The Ship That Sailed to Mars (1923) is his only published book, a fantastical illustrated gift book that rivalled those of Rackham, Dulac, Goble and Nielsen. The book was published by George Harrap, who had earlier published Willy Pogany, and they followed a similar format here, reproducing Timlin's original calligraphic text mounted, like the plates, on grey matte paper. Timlin's book is divided in three parts: detailing the building and outfitting of the ship, the journey, and the arrival. "The Arrival" is the first plate of the third part, showing the ship's arrival on Mars itself, sailing high over a lake surrounded by fantastical buildings, the Martian princess watching them from a terrace overlooking the lake. The painting is signed by the artist after publication at the lower left.

        “Finished Palace of the Princess, The”

      1923. Original William M. Timlin Watercolor Drawing for “The Ship That Sailed to Mars”TIMLIN, William M. “The Finished Palace of the Princess.” [N.p.: n.d., ca. 1923]. Original pen, ink, and watercolor drawing for The Ship That Sailed to Mars. Signed at lower left. Image size: 8 3/4 x 10 3/4 inches; 248 x 273 mm. Matted, framed, and glazed. Together with the original leaf of accompanying calligraphic text. Image size: 7 5/8 x 11 1/4 inches; 195 x 285 mm. Also matted, framed, and glazed.Depicts a room in the Palace of the Princess with a large arched French window, with curtains hung on either side of the door. The Princess, in a golden gown, is standing in the middle, moving a rug into position. At right are three Fairies, one holding a ladder on which a second Fairy is standing, hanging a gem-hung lamps. The third Fairy is standing by a small table at far right making the final adjustments to the drapes.The text of the calligraphic leaf in black with initial letters and decorations in blue. “That night for a space, every Fairy laboured, as only Fairies can, on the unfinished Palace of the Princess, and it was soon complete. Its marble terraces were builded, and its many towers capped, and its crystal-floored halls were lit with gem-hung lamps. And all brought gifts enough to fill many palaces,—hangings of many silks, and gold and jewelled things. One room, the Princess’ own, had in it nothing but silver, sapphire, and moonstone, draped with luminous spider silk. Then the Prince and Princess were married, and the bells rang out afresh, and on the scene shone the Double Moons the Old Man had so longed to see. All the evening, in the midst of all the merriment, the Princess held the Old Man’s hand in gratitude that could find no words, and it seemed to him that here was a Land where a man might live gladly, and for ever.”William Timlin (1893-1943), “born in Ashington, Northumberland, Timlin was educated in England but emigrated to South Africa before 1915 and studied art there. He did illustrations in pen and ink and watercolour, and exhibited regularly in South Africa, where he practised as an architect. He wrote stories, composed music, illustrated periodicals, produced watercolour fantasies, painted in oil, and produced etchings. His book, The Ship That Sailed to Mars, was published in 1923 and the film rights were purchased in the US, where Timlin was popular during his lifetime. It has been asserted that the illustrations to this book put him in the top ten of fantasy illustrators with Rackham, Dulac, Goble and Nielsen. He died in Kimberley, South Africa” (Alan Horne, The Dictionary of 20th Century British Book Illustrators).“The most original and beautiful children’s book of the 1920s was William M. Timlin’s masterpiece The Ship That Sailed to Mars: A Fantasy. Excelling the production values previously lavished on Willy Pogany and Harry Clarke, George Harrap published this huge and magnificent volume in November 1923, finely bound in quarter vellum richly decorated in gilt. ‘Told and Pictured by William M. Timlin’, the book contained 48 superb colour plates by the artist, alternated throughout with 48 leaves adorned with his fine calligraphic and poetic text. These pieces of art were all mounted by hand on grey matte paper, reminiscent of Harrap’s best pre-war editions de luxe, notably Pogany’s The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. Timlin’s fantasy is a magical combination of science fiction and fairyland. His watercolours equal the best work of Arthur Rackham and W. Heath Robinson, seen to great effect in ‘The Raising of the Tower’, ‘The Celebration’, ‘The Palace Gardens’, ‘The Seven Sisters’ (living in compact little moons, each complete with doors, windows and chimneys), ‘The Jeweller’s Shop’ (‘An elf would run out from some low-browed jeweller’s shop and press a priceless ruby into his hand’), and ‘The Temple’ (‘Myriad-pinnacled, with daring spans of flying buttress and airy bridge, a place of supreme happiness’). A total of only 2,000 copies of the book were produced in Britain, of which 250 were distributed in America by Stokes of New York (in 1924)…The film rights to the book were sold in America, but the movie, which was to be called Get Off the Earth, was never completed…His later series of paintings, intended as plates for a book to be entitled The Building of a Fairy City, were never published in that form, but some (including the magical ‘Fantasy and Triumphal Arch’) have been issued as postcards in South Africa” (Richard Dalby, The Golden Age of Children’s Book Illustration, p. 102).

        Fior d'Amaranto altisonante su l'ali del vento ti giunga l'eco del nostro rimpianto: di Cotorniano manca l'ornamento, manca d'Amelia il purissimo incanto

      [1923 - 1925 circa]Disegno a matita su carta, mm.350x500, eseguito da Giacomo Balla, dedicato ad Amelia Ambron.

A partire da quel momento ha inizio un rapporto che condurrà l'artista a soggiornare più volte (nel'23 e nel'25) nella tenuta degli Ambron a Cotorniano, nella campagna senese. Nel corso di quel periodo Balla diventa il maestro del giovane e talentuoso Emilio e, dal 1926 al 1929, ricevuto lo sfratto, troverà ospitalità insieme alla sua famiglia nella Villa Ambron ai Parioli (Roma).

      4 pp. (mm. 179X110), datata 14 - XII - 1923, diretta al Prof. Giusto Zampieri, su carta intestata ?Deputazione Provinciale di Milano?, di 41 righe. ?Caro Prof. Zampieri - Scrivo a Lei - figura tanto eletta e caratteristica del nostro Conservatorio - nell?ora angosciosa. La morte del Maestro Gallignani col quale m?incontrai anche giorni fa e che mi voleva bene, mi ha profondamente colpito e rattristato. Egli si confidò meco spesso, versandomi quelle amarezze che gli uomini di sogni e di lavoro nutrono nel loro sangue e che, talvolta, sono magari anche delle ragioni di vita, maggiori. Accolga il mio commosso memore saluto e porti a tutta la famiglia valorosa del Conservatorio il mio saluto di condoglianze.? Ben conservata. "Paolo Buzzi, scrittore, esordì con poesie fra carducciane e dannunziane; ma, attratto dal movimento Futurista, ne divenne una delle espressioni più serie e significative".

        L'Ange du morbide (Conte). [In: La Revue sans titre. Organe de Défense des Jeunes. Deuxième èdition].

      (Paris, 1923). Lex 8vo. Entire issue present, with the original printed wrappers. Some tears to spine and a bit of wear to extremities. A fagile publication. Ff. (6-7). [Entire issue: 8 ff.).. Sartre's extremely scarce first publication, in the also exceedingly scarce first number of the "La Revue sans titre", here in the second edition from the same year, which is of equal scarcity to the first. When Contat and Rybalka were making the bibliography of the writings of Sartre, they had great difficulty in finding the interesting rebellion publication "La Revue sans titre", which was - and is - not present in any French library. In fact, they finally borrowed a run of the magazine from M. Jean Gaulmier, professor of literature in Strasbourg, who possessed the only collection of the periodical that they could track down. The "L'Ange du morbid" had been reproduced in 1947 by Marc Beigbeder in his "L'Homme Sartre", but not quite in its entirety, and Contat and Rybalka thus printed the text again, for the second time since 1923, at the back of their Sartre-bibliography (1970) as the first part of the second appendix, which has the half-title "Textes retrouvés" (rediscovered texts). This interesting story which constitutes Sartre's first publication was published when he was merely 18 years old. In a strongly satirical tone Sartre tells the story of a mediocre professor's adventure with a young patient who has tuberculoses. The main character, the professor of a small provincial school, constitutes the pre-figuration of the highly unsympathetic character that occupies his following publications. The "Revue sans titre", of which we here have number one in its entirety, is also in itself interesting. The director of the publication is Charle Fraval, and the editorial secretary is Roger Letac. The publication claims to be "in defense of the Young", and on the front wrapper it states "Those who suffer from the mercantilism of literature, those whose talent is suppressed by the literary magnates, in short all the Young, have reason to read "REVUE SANS TITRE", the only organ in defense of the Young" (own translation, original: "Ceux qui souffrent du mercantilisme de la literature, ceux don't le talent est étouffé par les magnats des letters, tous les jeunes en un mot, ont intérêt à lire la "Revue sans titre" seul organe de defense des Jeunes."

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.

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.

        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.
