        Cruise of the Mauretania to the Mediterranean 1923 (Photo Album)[cover title]

      Stamford, CT: Publishers Photo Service, Inc., 1923. Trade Paperback Trade Paperback. Very Good. [114] pages. 13-3/4 by 10-1/4 inches. Photo album of the first luxury cruise of the RMS Mauretania (Cunard Line), following its sixteen years of service as a transatlantic ocean liner, and World War One hospital ship. This first cruise was commissioned by the American Express Travel Company, and aimed exclusively at the wealthy, with prohibitively costly ticket prices. Advertisements announced Mauretania would be diverted from her regular ports 'to make an epoch in cruising history.' Ads ran widely in magazines including Travel, National Geographic, Country Life, The Dial, Current Opinion, Literary Digest, and elsewhere. The cruise left the Port of New York on February 10, 1923 and returned the following April. At the time, Mauretania was the Blue Riband record holder for the fastest ship on the Atlantic, an honor it held for 20 years. Newspapers at the time reported the cruise was re-christened mid-voyage as 'The Hundred Million Dollar Ship” due to its moneyed patrons. The bespoke album contains 113 black-and-white photographs, 9-1/2 by 7-1/2 inches each, tipped-in recto only, one per page, with caption labels in varying fonts glued beneath. Includes two full images of the Mauretania herself, one in Corsica and one from the Grand Corniche Drive in the French Riviera, plus one of the bow taken aboard at the landing at Ponta Delgada in the Azores. The photos depict idyllic stops in Spain, Algiers, Monte Carlo, The French Riviera, Naples, Pompeii, Rome, Istanbul, Athens, Giza, Cairo and Portugal, and includes a smoking Mt. Vesuvius. Despite the opulence, the luxury tourists were shocked after landing in Turkey among desperate refugees. Three photos show refugees in a camp on the Bosphorus Strait, one with a child who died while the photo was taken, and other children who would die of starvation or diphtheria within hours or days. Most captions do not personally identify the people depicted, but one exception is a photograph of Judge Elbert H. Gary (who paid $25,000 for his suite on the ship) and his wife in Madeira. Gary was the founder of U. S. Steel, and for whom the city of Gary, Indiana was named. After the cruise Gary was quoted in American papers, 'I was shocked by the deplorable conditions at Constantinople, at Athens and in the Near East, where many thousands of starving refugees are huddled in rags and filth in wretched, insanitary hovels.' Fellow passenger H. A. Tallmadge, owner of the Toledo Blade newspaper, 'corroborated the steel maker's description of the horrible condition of the Christian refugees in the Near East, saying that Greece is unable to handle the situation and must have more medical aid or thousands will perish.' The London Illustrated Police News on April 12, 1923 noted the 'Ship Full of American Millionaires' was not only a costly affair but also 'one of the wettest voyages made by Americans since prohibition. Considerably more than £10,000 pounds worth of liquor was consumed.' Black leather covers over black pages bound with two heavy rivets. Title and original owner's name stamped with gilt on cover. Edges worn and outside hinges starting to crack. Missing 6 pages that were cut or torn out. Most photos fine, though a few are lightly scuffed. Former owner's printed address sticker on front blank reinforced with scotch tape. Scarce.

To one Monsieur Custot, apologizing for not being able "to meet" him "without delay", since "my health at present is not of the best" (April 10). "You must forgive me for not having acknowledged your kind letter and your study of the Eighteenth Century, which you were so good as to send me some days ago; but I confess that I have been merely enjoying this air and sunshine, and have done nothing whatever. He is an interesting scoundrel, your hero-adventurer, and, like all scoundrels, from the Chevalier Faublas to Casanova, he seems to be rewarded with all the good things of life. I do not find that just - - even in fiction [.]" (April 23). - Each letter with lithographed letterhead "Grand Hotel Californie | Cannes".

        The Berkshire Kennet.

      London: Privately Printed for Holbrook Jackson at the Curwen Press,, 1923. Small duodecimo-sized pamphlet. Original patterned wrappers, title label to front. Fine. First edition, first impression, number 28 of 50 copies, printed on hand-made paper, this copy additionally inscribed on the limitation page, "Donald Friede from Richard Aldington". Donald S. Friede (1901-1965) was a significant American publisher of literary Modernists. The son of a Russian immigrant who had represented Ford in Tsarist Russia, Friede was expelled from three universities (Harvard, Yale, and Princeton) before finding his first footing in the book world working as a stock clerk for Alfred A. Knopf. He had only just joined Boni & Liveright in 1923, the year of this book's publication. He soon rose to become its Vice-President in 1925, and in 1928 co-founded Covici-Friede, Inc, publishing the likes of John Steinbeck, Ezra Pound, T. S. Eliot and E.E. Cummings. He later worked as a literary agent, and senior editor at Prentice-Hall and Doubleday, working with Ernest Hemingway and Theodore Dreiser. The Library of Congress holds his papers. This is an excellent association for one of the British Modernist's rarest publications, of which we can trace only one inscribed copy ever having appeared auction, in 1992. Aldington's long poem (which had appeared in To-Day, September 1923, and also appeared in the same year in the collection The Exile and Other Poems) communicates the spiritual salve of walks along the River Kennet in Berkshire, where he was recovering in Malthouse Cottage from the shock of his trench experiences, taking his friend T. S. Eliot (then flushed with fame after the publication of The Waste Land in 1922) as an occasional companion on his countryside rambles. Aldington's biographer described the pastoral poem as "a one man rear-guard action against Modernism... symptomatic of the fact that Aldington was uncertain of his position in relation to the new poetic" (Richard Aldington: A Biography).

      Garden City, NY: Doubleday, Page & Company, 1923. First edition, later printing of this classic sea yarn by Conrad. Octavo, original blue cloth, gilt stamped to the front panel, gilt titles to the spine, frontispiece. Boldly inscribed by Joseph Conrad on the front free endpaper. In near fine condition with some light offsetting to the endpapers. Typhoon is most likely based upon Conrad's actual experience of seaman's life, and probably on a real incident aboard of the steamer John P. Best. The Typhoon describes how Captain MacWhirr sails the s/s Nan-Shan, a British-built steamer running under the Siamese flag, into a typhoon a mature tropical cyclone of the northwestern part of the Pacific Ocean. Other characters include the young Jukes most probably an alter ego of Conrad from the time he had sailed under captain John McWhirr and Solomon Rout, the chief engineer. The novella classically evokes the seafaring life at the turn of the century. While Macwhirr, who, according to Conrad, never walked on this Earth is emotionally estranged from his family and crew, and though he refuses to consider an alternate course to skirt the typhoon, his indomitable will in the face of a superior natural force elicits grudging admiration.

An especially fine and very handsome set, the text very clean and fresh and pristine, the bindings in excellent condition and very fine indeed. SCARCE FULL SET OF FIRST EDITIONS IN VERY FINE BINDINGS SIGNED BAYNTUN OF BATH. In Churchill's own words: "(in) the five volumes of the WORLD CRISIS and the AFTERMATH I have told the story of the War from the British standpoint, and particularly from those positions of authority which I held myself. The war at sea, the expedition to the Dardanelles, and the campaigns in France and Flanders filled the stage. It was only here and there that brief summaries of the struggles of Russia with Germany and Austria in the East could find a place. In (THE EASTERN FRONT) the proportions are reversed. The tale both of the events leading to the War and of its battles is told from the Eastern theatre, and only brief, indispensable references are made to British and French affairs. I have attempted to give a general account of the whole War upon the Eastern Front, and the distant cannonade in France breaks only fitfully upon the ear. The primary theme arises in Vienna and covers the agonies of Central Europe. The familiar events of the West are seen only in their reactions upon the Eastern Front" [preface to THE EASTERN FRONT).

        THE ROVER [inscribed by Conrad]

      1923. Garden City NY: Doubleday, Page & Company, 1923. Original blue cloth, with dust jacket. First Trade Edition (preceded one day earlier by a 377-copy special edition), published before the English edition.~This volume is in fine condition, and the jacket is just about fine as well (very slightly tanned, as usual). Keating 179.~This copy's front free endpaper bears an almost-full-page signed presentation inscription, "Signed at the request of Walter Tittle for Miss Jean Campbell with best wishes by [signed] Joseph Conrad New Year's Day 1924". Sadly, this New Year's Day would be Conrad's last -- as he would die on August 3rd of the year just beginning. On 12 November 1922, Allan Wade (who was then trying to help Conrad get his dramatic version of THE SECRET AGENT onto the stage) had paid a visit to the Conrads' home, bringing with him the American portraitist Walter Tittle (1883-1966), whom Conrad admired; that day Tittle did an etching of Conrad, which would subsequently be selected as the frontispiece for Dent's Collected Edition of his works [1923].~Provenance: small "SJS" bookplate of Stanley J. Seeger -- see Sotheby's Seeger lot #363.
