        La Revue Méridionale. De Février 1923 (Tome IV - n° 1) au 15 Septembre 1925 (Tome VIII - n° 10 et dernier numéro publié) sauf Mai 1923

      Rédaction et Administration La Revue Méridionale. 30 numéros in-8 br., Rédaction et Administration, Bordeaux, 1923 Rare série proposant de manière quasi-suivie (hormis l'absence du numéro de Mai 1923) de la "Revue méridionale" fondée par le Comte Bertrand de Lur-Saluces, depuis Février 1923 jusqu'à son dernier numéro publié daté du 15 septembre 1925. A cette date, la Revue Méridionale fusionna avec la "Revue Fédéraliste" de Lyon. La présente série a été richement truffé par l'abonné de coupures de presse (collées sur des feuillets insérés dans chaque numéros) relatives à la politique, aux lettres et aux arts, mais également à la vie locale (Bordelais et Gascogne). L'aspect global de la collection en est fortement affecté (et chaque numéro est protégé par un papier kraft souvent contrecollé en marges), mais l'intérêt de la série, l'une des rares à s'ouvrir aussi largement aux Félibres de "Guyenne et Gascogne" (dont Adolphe Dumas), en est encore accru.

        Il fuoco delle piramidi. Liriche e parole in libertà con prefazione di F. T. Marinetti

      In-8° (245x168mm), pp. 29, (2) di catalogo delle "Edizioni Futuriste di "Poesia". Brossura editoriale con titolo in rosso e nero. Testo impresso al solo recto; le composizioni parolibere del Mopurgo sono diposte secondo estrosi schemi di grafica futurista, tra i più originali e inventivi dell'intera produzione di tale movimento in àmbito italiano. Perfetta copia entro velina. Edizione originale della maggiore raccolta di poesia parolibera del Morpurgo. "Nel suo libro più importante, Il Fuoco delle Piramidi, egli presenta tavole parolibere di grande originalità, tra cui la celebre poesia visiva Amore, in cui le lettere si dispongono in una specie di diagramma sinusoidale che rimanda allo stato di movimento, nonché alla condizione psicologica di esaltazione-depressione, e contemporaneamente allude all'immagine del mare, al moto delle onde, tutti simboli dell"atto amoroso" (Salaris 1992: pag. 179). "Nelle tavole del "Fuoco delle Piramidi", il segno, assume pienamente il carattere di grafo, pertanto la significazione risulta organizzata dai rapporti di posizione dei vari elementi, spesso indicati da indici segnaletici di collegamento, che stabiliscono i rimandi... Il grafo, composto in reticolo oppure in diagramma, serve al Morpurgo per trasmettere non solo una informazione, (...) ma il significato della informazione pure, per semiosi ovvero costruzione... Cosi la disposizione sinusoidale di "Amore" realizza direttamente, nel proprio tracciato grafico, le molteplici implicazioni connotative del lessema: stato di movimento oscillante, pertanto alternanza di condizioni psicologiche o emozionali, visualizzazione in analogia del moto ondoso (connotazioni dei tratti di instabilita e dolcezza)" (Viazzi, I poeti del Futurismo, p. 418). Il Morpurgo (Il Cairo, 1899-Rimini 1978), che di professione era avvocato, fu uno dei principali esponenti del Futurismo italiano. Nella sua nazione natia collaborò come giornalista a svariati quotidiani e periodici (Le journal d'Egypte - La Bourse Egyptienne - Le Progrès Egyptien- Il giornale d'Oriente). Salaris, cit. Viazza, cit. Cammarota, Futurismo, 333, 4. Dizionario del Futurismo, p. 760a: "Tra gli esiti maggiori del sintetismo e del paroliberismo futurista per nitidezza grafica e costruzione iconoica del lessema". Italiano

Pictorial endpapers in green and white. Some minor rubbing to covers, very minor wear to spine edges. All volumes with previous owner’s bookplate, on half-title in volumes I and III and initial blank in volume II. Inner hinges show cracking but holding. Volume III with some glue repair to front inner hinge. A bit of foxing and toning to text leaves and edges, but not affecting plates. Overall a very good copy with the gilt still very bright. "This narrative of the discovery of the tomb of Tut-ankh-Amen is merely preliminary: a final record of purely scientific nature will take some time, nor can it be adequately made until the work of investigation of the tomb and its vast material has been completed. Nevertheless, in view of the public interest in our discovery, we felt that some account without the loss of time, no matter how summary, was necessary, and that is the reason for the publication of this book. We have here for the first time, a royal burial very little disturbed in spite of that hurried plundering it has suffered at the hands of the ancient tomb-robbers, and within the shrines of the tomb-chamber I believe the Pharaoh lies intact, in all his royal magnificence."

        Die Verstümmelten. Roman.

      Rowohlt, Berlin 1923 - 269 S., 1 Blatt Anzeigen. Orig.-Halbleinenband. Mit eigenhändiger, persönlicher Widmung des Autors in tschechischer Sprache: "Svému sefovi panu vyslanci doktoru Kroftovi v hluboké úcte venovano V Berline, 27.III.1925, Dr. H. Ungar" ("Meinem Chef, Herrn Botschafter Dr. Krofta in tiefer Ehrfurcht gewidmet, Berlin, 27.III. 1925 Dr. H. Ungar" - Für die Übersetzung danke ich Dr. Václav Petrbok aus Prag und Dr. Klaus Johann für die freundliche Vermittlung ). Hermann Ungar (1893-1929), gehörte zum Prager Kreis um Franz Kafka, Ernst Weiß und Max Brod. Er veröffentlichte während der 1920er Jahre ein schmales, aber originäres Werk, das in der literarischen Öffentlichkeit durchaus Beachtung fand, wegen der scheinbar erbarmungslosen Schilderung psychopathologischer Zustände und der Vordergründigkeit des Sexuellen jedoch kontrovers diskutiert wurde. Seit 1922 arbeitete der promovierte Jurist als Legationsrat an der teschechoslowakischen Botschaft in Berlin, später als Ministerialkommissar im Prager Außenministerium. Er starb 1929 an einem zu spät behandelten Blinddarmdurchbruch in einem Prager Krankenhaus. Widmungsexemplare Ungars sind aufgrund seiner Außenseiterstellung im Literaturbetrieb selten. Papierbedingt gering gebräunt, insgesamt handelt es sich jedoch um ein gut erhaltenes Exemplar seines spätexpressionistsichen Hauptwerks mit allenfalls leichten Gebrauchsspuren.

        Alice Im Spiegelland [Through the Looking-Glass, and what Alice found there].

      8vo. Original mid-blue cloth lettered gilt to spine with a decorative title in gilt to upper board, mid-blue endpapers, preserved in pictorial dustwrapper; [vi], 7-121 + [ii]; with 12 fine, striking, and saturated, colour-lithographed plates in Expressionist style together with a decorative title in black and white; a very attractive copy indeed with mild dulling to spine gilt, internally fresh throughout with almost unavoidable even toning to text stock and a couple of insignificant edge nicks, protected by the remarkably elusive pictorial dustwrapper featuring an additional coloured plate not reproduced internally, the wrapper with light overall dusting, small loss to head of spine (maximum width 27mm), one or two short and closed edge tears, nicking to a couple of corners, and light lateral creasing to top edge. First edition illustrated thus. A very scarce edition indeed, not included in Lovett (the seminal bibliography of Alice which lists over 2000 titles) although a copy of (apparently) the same year, with only 5 coloured plates, and without a dustwrapper, is listed (689). Only two other copies of this book were traced in commerce at the time of cataloguing and neither possess the dustwrapper.

        Inscribed and signed notecard.

      Paris: , Spring 1923. Single notecard, inscribed. Some light marks, very good condition. Enigmatic notecard inscribed by Joyce, "James Joyce Paris Easter 1923". Easter fell on 30th March in 1923, when Joyce had just recommenced writing, after a year's exhausted abeyance following the publicaton of Ulysses in Paris in 1922. Joyce had not written a line of prose for a year, but on 10 March wrote to his patron Harriet Shaw Weaver: "Yesterday I wrote two pages—the first I have since the final Yes of Ulysses. Having found a pen, with some difficulty I copied them out in a large handwriting on a double sheet of foolscap so that I could read them. Il lupo perde il pelo ma non il vizio, the Italians say. 'The wolf may lose his skin but not his vice' or 'the leopard cannot change his spots.'" This was the first foray into Joyce's next great work, the Work in Progress that would become Finnegan's Wake.

        Signed Card with a Salutation in Gaelic

      1923. unbound. 3.5 x 4.25 inches, May 23, 1923, signed "With Great Esteem, C. O'. Higgins" -- a choice example of one of the most important figures in Irish history during the first half of the 20th century. Ink notations and mounting remnants on the back, but still in very good condition. Irish statesman who supported the treaty with Great Britain that created the Irish Free State. In 1922 he became Minister of Justice and Vice President of the Executive Council (Cabinet). His part in the execution of 77 Republicans in 1922-1923 made him many enemies and culminated in his being assassinated in 1927 at the age of 35 by members of the Irish Republican Army.

        Habit and Other Short Stories (First Edition, inscribed in the year of publication)

      Los Angeles: Times-Mirror Press, 1923. First Edition. First Edition. Association copy, INSCRIBED by Zanuck in the year of publication to silent film actor Harry Fox: "To Harry Fox / If you enjoyed this effort one-tenth as much as I have often enjoyed you, I'm satisfied / Darryl Francis Zanuck / '23." A collection of lighthearted stories by Zanuck, published at a point when his writing career (if one could call it that) was on the ropes, his screenwriting career was well on its way, and his great fame as a producer was yet to begin. Very Good, with some bumping at the spine ends and a slight lean. A very presentable copy, rare to find signed.
