Mirianin (pseudonym)
Izdanie Dal'nevostochnogo Russkogo Monarkhicheskogo Soiuza, Shanghai. Octavo (19 × 12.4 cm). Original staple-stitched printed wrappers; 16 pp. With partial underlining to front wrapper; else very good or better. Scarce propaganda publication by an unidentified member of the Far-Eastern Russian Monarchist Society (Dal'nevostochnyi Russkii Monarkhicheskii Soiuz). The author paints a dire picture of Russia, "once the bread basket of the world, now a country of the poor and destitute," imprisoned and enslaved by "international villains," a thinly disguised reference to the Bolsheviks as a Jewish conspiracy. Only the Orthodox Church, now subject to numerous repressions, can save the Russian people, both in Soviet Russia and scattered in the diaspora, so the author. The Monarchist Association arose in early 1923, following the Whites' defeat in the Civil War, under the guidance of General A. G. Sychev. It was focused among workers of the Far Eastern Railroad (KVZhD), which remained under the control of the Whites for the time being, and was a key center of the most anti-Bolshevik elements among the former White Army. Meant to be passed on and distributed widely, the brochure features the words "Read and give to another" ("Prochti i peredai drugomu") on the rear wrapper, as well as a quotation by Dostoevsky on Russian Orthodoxy on the front wrapper. Savine only lists this title by this publisher, although other pamphlets are known to have been published. Not in KVK, OCLC. Not held by the Russian State or National Library.

Austen, Jane (edited by R. W. Chapman)
Oxford - The Clarendon Press 1923. First edition thus. The limited large paper edition of 1000 copies, of which 950 were for sale. This is presumably one of the 50 copies that were not available for sale as it comes from the Chapman family, volume I bears an inscription from R. W. Chapman which reads: "Michael Wood Chapman from his father, the editor" and the other four volumes are signed. The books are all firmly bound in the publisher's marbled boards with grey cloth spines and paper spine labels, the extremities are slightly bumped and rubbed and there are one or two minor marks. The text blocks are slightly toned, foxed and dusty. All volumes retain their original dust jackets, vols I, II & IV are in very good condition with only minor toning, small chips and short closed tears, vol III's jacket has fared slightly worse and is a little more rubbed and marked and vol V had suffered more than the others, with loss and longer tears which had been repaired amateurishly with tape, leaving tape burns, it has now been professionally conserved and stabilised with tissue and presents fairly well. An attractive set of this important scholarly edition of Austen's works, uncommonly found in the jackets and with a good association to the scholar in question.

D'Ardenne de Tizac, H. [Henri] with Roger Fry
London: Benn Brothers Limited, 1923. Edition limited to 250 copies, of which this is #98. Book measures 13" x 17" (32.5 cm. x 42 cm.) Unpaginated. Three page introduction by Roger Fry. A total 50 plates reproducing in photogravure rich photographs of artifacts, each preceded by a title page offering measurements, materials used in composition, provenance, etc. Slight wear to spine head and some insignificant edgewear, consistent with the book's age. Generally, a well-preserved copy. Printed at the Pelican Press. Laid in is a tri-fold promotional card, circa 1960, from the P. C. Lu and Co. shop in Hong Kong's Peninsula Hotel. Card delineates the Chinese dynasties. From 1905 to 1933, Henri D'Ardenne de Tizac directed the Museé Cernuschi. During that tenure he established a format for regular exhibitions and, importantly, a collections policy, whereby acquisitions were actively pursued. This volume represents many artifacts in the Cernuschi and many as identified in private hands. One can assume Tizac was possibly encouraging the bequest of those items to his museum by lavishing attention on them. The book is a sumptuous production realized in a format fittingly large and attractive. Uncommon.

ARAGON Louis
- sans date (circa 1923), 17x22cm, Deux feuillets d'écolier. - Poème manuscrit de quatre pages soit 102 lignes, composé à l'encre noire sur deux feuillets de papier écolier, réglure Seyès, écrits recto-verso. En marge haute du premier feuillet, inscription au crayon rouge, sans doute plus tardive : « 19 lyons-la-forêt ». Une partie de cette note est effacée, mais on peut supposer que l'ensemble était : « 19. A lyons-la forêt, ça va très très mal » Exceptionnel manuscrit original complet de cet important et rare poème, composé dans le style des écritures automatiques pendant les années de jeunesse pré-surréaliste d'Aragon. Ce superbe et foisonnant poème longtemps considéré comme perdu ne fut retrouvé qu'en 1974, et publié pour la première fois par Aragon dans le quatrième volume de ses Œuvres Poétiques parues entre 1974 et 1981. Dans une note liminaire, Jean Ristat indique les circonstances de sa redécouverte : Aragon reçut dans les années 70, de la part d'un collectionneur, un duplicata de ce poème de jeunesse qu'il pensait définitivement perdu. Sur cette copie, le poète remplaça le titre Lyons-la-Forêt, inscrit en rouge dans la marge haute, par Dans la forêt et ajouta une date supposée : « début 1927 ». Il existe également un double de ce premier duplicata avec le texte retracé et corrigé de la main de l'auteur à l'encre bleue afin d'en faciliter la transcription pour les imprimeurs. Pour la publication, Aragon a ajouté aux épreuves une page de titre modifiant légèrement la datation : « texte perdu et retrouvé (vraisemblablement été 1927) ».

Flechtheim-Druck in einer Auflage von 250 nummerierten und im Druckvermerk signierten Exemplaren mit 10 handschriftlich geschriebenen und lithographierten Gedichten, denen jeweils eine von Else Lasker-Schüler voll signierte Originallithographie gegenübersteht. Vorliegend Exemplar Nummer 227 aus dem Besitz von Hugo May, dem ehemaligen Direktor des Zürcher Warenhauses Julius Brann. Zusammen mit weiteren Förderern hatte Hugo May Else Lasker-Schüler in Ihrer schwierigen Zürcher Exilzeit finanziell unterstützt. Als Dankesgabe für Ihre finanzielle Unterstützung erhielten diese Förderer von der Dichterin handschriftlich geschriebene Gedichte und manchmal auch eigene Zeichnungen. In vorliegendem Geschenkexemplar von Theben, welches Hugo May von Else Lasker-Schüler erhielt, wurden die 10 Originallithographien von Else Lasker-Schüler eigenhändig koloriert, so wie es für die ersten 50 Exemplare der Ausgabe vorgesehen war. Solche, mit prächtigen Farben handkolorierten Exemplare von Theben tauchen auf dem Markt außerordentlich selten auf.

Notgeld:
n.p. (Germany). n.d. not after 1923. An oblong 4to album (13 1/2 x 10ins, 340 x 255mm) imitation green crocodile skin, brass screw fixings to retain album leaves, gold circular motif to top cover. pp41, each with at least 6 Notgeld notes, held with specialist sliding cardboard fixings, not glued, so some 240 notes, printed usually recto and verso, the notes themselves in a huge variety of styles and colours. Retaining protective glassine leaves. All in Fine Condition. "Notgeld (German for "emergency money" or "necessity money") refers to money issued by an institution in a time of economic or political crisis. The issuing institution is usually one without official sanction from the central government." Wikipedia. At the outbreak of the Great War in 1914, German currency went off the gold standard, resulting in the hoarding of metal coins and other cash. With this shortage of currency, businesses and cities began independently to issue their own "emergency" or "misery" money. With the establishment of the Weimar Republic, after 1918 this resulted in what was seen almost as a collecting craze, some Notgeld was never intended to circulate, even being first issued after its expiration date to satisfy collectors' appetites. Notes continued to be printed, circulated and used until 1923, eventually in alarming denominations (millions, billions and trillions). Nowhere is there an indication as to issue dates. However the low values (usually Pfennigs or low value Marks) would indicate post 1918 but earlier than say 1921.

Timlin, William
George G. Harrap & Company, London, 1923. First edition of this gorgeous outlier of the Golden Age of Illustration, a fully realized fantasy of interplanetary travel written and illustrated by South African architect William Timlin. An Old Man fulfills the dream of his youth, "sailing by way of the Moon, and the more friendly planets" on his way to the Shining City of Mars. The ship of the title, designed by the aged engineer but built by fairies, captures the tale's balance of science fiction and fantasy: one iconic plate depicts the ship, whose design hearkens back to the Age of Discovery, outrunning the magnificent flare of a meteor. The only work authored by Timlin, The Ship That Sailed to Mars secured his reputation alongside prolific professional illustrators like Arthur Rackham, Edmund Dulac, and Kay Nielsen. A near-fine copy of a strikingly original space odyssey. Quarto, measuring 12 x 9 inches: 96 leaves of heavy grey paper, containing 48 mounted pages of printed lettering in Timlin's hand and 48 mounted full color illustrations. Original vellum spine lettered and decorated in gilt, grey printed paper boards. Lacking original dust jacket. Unobtrusive ink ownership inscription to front pastedown, lightest bumping to corners.

Thorndike, Lynn
New York: Columbia University Press. Reprint. Hardcover. Near Fine. Volumes retain their original copyright date (1923-1958) though this is a reprint edition, probably from the 1970s. Hardcovers. Octavo. 8 volume set. Uniformly bound in green cloth with gilt titles to spine. Volume 1: xi + 836pp. Volume 2: viii + 1036pp. Volume 3: xxvi + 830pp. Volume 4: xviii + 770pp. Volume 5: xxii + 696pp. Volume 6: xviii + 766pp. Volume 7: x + 696pp. Volume 8: xiii + 808pp. A very clean set internally with no markings. A bit of wear to corner points, light vertical crease to spine cloth on volumes I and II, tiny light spots to fore-edge of two volumes, otherwise a near fine set. Additional shipping charges may apply for overseas orders. This is Thorndike's classic work. It was originally published in separate parts between 1923 and 1958. The original aim of this work was to treat and document the history of magic, alchemy and experimental science (including medical experimentation) during the first thirteen centuries of our era. This is covered within the first two volumes. The remaining volumes cover the 14th through 17th centuries (Vols 3 & 4: fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, Vols 5 & 6: sixteenth century, Vols 7 & 8: seventeenth century). Magic is understood under the broadest sense of the work, as including all occult arts and sciences, superstitions and folklore. The author believes that magic and experimental science have been connected in their development, and within these pages he has attempted to prove the same. The amount of information included is staggering with detai … [Click Below for Full Description]

In una nota introduttiva, Jean Ristat indica le circostanze della sua riscoperta: Aragon ha ricevuto negli anni '70, da un collezionista, un duplicato di questo poema giovanile che pensava fosse definitivamente perso. Su questa copia, il poeta sostituì il titolo Lyons-la-Forêt, inscritto in rosso nel margine superiore, nella foresta e aggiunse una data presunta: ""inizio 1927"".

On this copy, the poet replaced the title Lyons-la-Forêt, inscribed in red in the upper margin, by In the forest and added a supposed date: "early 1927". There is also a duplicate of this first duplicate with the text retraced and corrected by the author's hand in blue ink to facilitate transcription for printers. For the publication, Aragon added to the proofs a title page slightly modifying the dating: "lost and found text (presumably been 1927)".These two corrected facsimiles are preserved in the Triolet-Aragon Fund with all the … [Click Below for Full Description]
