      Mönichkirchen, 15. VIII. 1924.. 1 S. Gr.-4to.. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Wir haben im Archiv bis Mitte September Ferien und können fürs Erste schon aus diesem Grund - sehr zu meinem Bedauern - nicht dienen.

        Autograph letter signed ("TE Shaw").

      Clouds Hill, Moreton, Dorset, 15. X. 1924.. 2 pp. 8vo. With autogr. envelope. Includes TDS by G. E. B. Bromley-Martin, of the Bank of Liverpool and Martin, London (dated 22. Dec. 1924).. To Whitney H. Shepardson of New York, who had inquired as to how he might obtain a copy of the "Seven Pillars of Wisdom" when the book was finally published: "The Prophet has sent me on your letter, with instructions to deal with it: - and I'm puzzled. Really you know you are foolish to want a copy. It's a thirty guinea book, of which so many copies are being sold as will meet the printing bills (about 120 copies perhaps) with some off-prints of the unadorned text for the twenty or thirty fellows who shared the campaign with me. I can't give them 30-guinea presents: they can't buy 30-guinea books. So I want the subscribers to pay for my generosity in giving them free copies. The prime cost lies in the pictures (about 60, many in colour, at 10/- a print!) and the pictures are only an unjustifiable whim of mine. They have been done by British artists whom I liked, + who would work for me. Such a luxury book is for the idle rich. Mrs. Lamont is getting one. Huntingdon [!] + Pierpont Morgan aren't...! ... Do you feel justified in chucking away so much on an amateur production? The writing is pretentious, dull, hysterical, egotistical, + preternaturally long. No human being has ever been to the end of it [the 335,000 word ms.]. They return it, thumbed to about half way, with pretty speeches. So long as I hold it secret, the sight of it is a boast, so long it will be praised. Seriously, it isn't any earthly good. It costs as I have said, may be a year yet in printing, + is horrible in parts. Eleanor (beg her pardon, but that's her only possible name. The proper ones only indicate her wayward choice of parents etc.) would be sick over it. The thing will not be reprinted entire in my life-time: you suggest 'for a long time.' ... but the prospect isn't pleasing. There will be an American Edition, to secure copyright. Doubleday, probably. He has made a reasonable estimate. It would be printed at my expense, two copies for the Library of Congress, or whatever the show is, + eight for sale: + the sale price will be prohibitive, so that they will never sell, + the edition will never be exhausted, + no one may pirate! I suggest 10,000 dollars, but F.N.D. hasn't yet considered what is above-high-water-mark in U.S.A. Tell me, please, if you are knowing! If despite all faults (my most honest dissuasion puts people on sometimes!) you want a copy: then you'll have to send fifteen guineas, half price - E. will know the size of the extinct coin - to: Manager / Bank of Liverpool + Martins / 68 Lombard St. / London, E.C.3, payable to TE Lawrence, + 'Seven Pillars account' . Balance when you get the book. Let me strongly urge you not to. I have 90 subscribers, so there is no urgency - on the point of helping lame dogs! [...]". - When the book finally appeared in 1926, the cost of each copy to Lawrence was triple the selling price, and it was not until the fourth reprint of the 1927 abridgement "Revolt in the Desert" that his debts were paid off. As the included receipt shows, Shepardson was undeterred and duly transferred the 15. 15/- to Liverpool & Martins' (the last copy of the 1926 "Pillars" at auction commanded 30,000 at Sotheby's in 2009). - The U.S. businessman Whitney Hart Shepardson (1890-1966), educated at Colgate, Balliol (as a Rhodes Scholar), and Harvard, had served as aide to the State Department at the 1919 Paris Peace Conference, where he may have met Lawrence. Between 1925 and 1927 he served as director on J. D. Rockefeller's General Education Board. A leading O.S.S. operative in WWII, he was the first London head of Secret Intelligence and remained with the organization soon to become the C.I.A. until 1946.

        MEN AND BOYS. An Anthology

      Privately printed in New York. 1924. First edition, first printing and first state. Contemporary half blue morocco over marbled paper-covered boards. Gilt titles, borders and raised bands to the spine. Small book label of Herbert Boyce Satcher to bottom edge of front pastedown. A very good copy, the binding a little rubbed to the extremities, the contents complete and without inscriptions or stamps. Minor finger-marking and the odd light corner crease throughout. This copy seemingly unique with the integral first state half title / variant title page present (of the handful of copies known and inspected by the bibliographer D. H. Mader (who also edited the reprint), all lack the half title or have it as a cancel). With a loosely inserted carbon copy of an English poem (first 2 lines reading: 'Somewhere he lies asleep/ Serene and free from dread'). Rare. The first anthology of homosexual verse published in the United States and one of the cornerstones of any collection of gay literature. A search of worldwide Institutional holdings of the 1924 first edition would suggest only one copy in the UK (in the Bodleian Library, Oxford) and one in the US (Dartmouth College, New Hampshire). All others hold only the 1978 second edition.

        Cyrano - Dessin préparatoire pour la couverture de la revue éponyme

      Original drawing in ink and gouache, recorded in golden frame and mat is signed in the lower right of the sheet.Louis Anquetin, Étrépagny born in 1861 and died in Paris in 1932, is an important French painter.He began his career with avant-garde artists such as Vincent Van Gogh and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. With Emile Bernard, he is the inventor of Cloisonnisme. From 1884 to 1893 Louis Anquetin continues to explore the new possibilities introduced by the release of Impressionism in French painting. From 1893, following a long confrontation with the "old masters", he adopts a bias that will put the painting on the sidelines of the general movement of the art, and will take away from his friends. Dazzled by Baroque art and creative force, he thinks as his childhood friends are engaged in a path that will lead to the death of painting. He believes in a "perfect painting" embodied in the re-remembering the lessons Michelangelo and Rubens among others. His work becomes more classic, it advocates a return to the trade, proposing to reflect on the a priori conditions of any possible form of art while respecting the rules of perspective and anatomy, as practiced by the masters the sixteenth and seventeenth siècle.Ne leaving only a few works that can be described as monumental, Anquetin proves prolific for his many studies and sketches, who considered that the design was "a very powerful means of expression," the mandatory basis for all plastiques.En arts voluntarily working backward of his time, Louis Anquetin made possible the existence of an original modern figuration. By his stubbornness and his passion for painting, he has indeed prevented is completely blocked the path of the great Western tradition.One can admire his works in many prestigious museums such as the Musée d'Orsay and the Louvre in Paris, San Francisco and Detroit, Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, the National Gallery and the Tate London, etc. S.n.

      Ludwigsburg, Schwabenpresse, um 1924.. . Vollständige Ausgabe in elegantem, aufwendig hergestellten Verlags-Handeinband der Zeit: Ganzfranzband geheftet auf fünf erhabene Bünde, beiges Maroquin-Leder / Ganzleder / Leder im Format 20,5 x 28 cm) mit Rücken- und Deckeltitel in Goldprägung sowie dezenter Dekoration der Deckel (Linien in Handvergoldung und Blinddruck, Filetendruck), handgestochenem Kopfband, Lederhäubchen, Steh- und Innenkantenvergoldung, Kleisterpapier-Vorsätzen, Kopfgoldschnitt sowie Buchbinder-Signatur in Goldprägung "E.Riethmüller Stuttgart" am Unterrand des hinteren Einbanddecke innen; Buchlock zweiseitig unbeschnitten. 30 Seiten auf kräftigem Büttenpapier, mit Druckvermerk am Ende des Bandes: "Dieses Werk wurde als siebenter Phaidon-Druck von der Schwabenpresse Ludwigsburg hergestellt. Auflage: zweihundert Exemplare auf handgeschöpftem Bütten; Nr. I-L in Saffianleder, Nr. 1-150 in Bockleder mit der Hand gebunden". - "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Zum Kapital wird kein schlappes maschinengewebtes Bändchen verwendet, sondern das Kapital wird von Hand mit dem Buchblock umstochen, gibt dadurch dem Rücken einen festen Abschluß und bietet zugleich dem späteren Ledereinschlag ("Häubchen") die Unterlage. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können." Aus einem alten Prospekt von Richard Hönn, ehemals Handbinderei des Verlages Albert Langen, Werkstatt für feine Buchbinder- und Lederarbeiten in München. - Meistereinband, Handeinband, Prachtausgabe, Gesamtausgabe, Vorzugsausgabe, Erstausgabe, EA, erste Auflage in guter Erhaltung (minimale Schabspuren, sonst sehr gut) - "So ist's mit aller Bildung auch beschaffen: / vergebens werden ungebundene Geister / nach der Vollendung reiner Höhe streben. / Wer Großes will, muss sich zusammenraffen; / in der Beschränkung zeigt sich erst der Meister,/ und das Gesetz nur kann uns Freiheit geben"

        Photo Album - Voyage on RMS Majola

      Europe, 1924. Sri Lanka, Egypt, Yemen, France, England, April 1924. Photograph Album from a cruise on RMS Maloja, with views of Colombo, Kandy, Aden, the Suez canal and Port Said, two French cities, and the Isle of Wight. Contains 265 black and white photographs mounted with onto cardstock leaves, with manuscript captions. Oblong folio album measuring approximately 40 x 27 x 4 cm, half calf over green cloth boards, a patented London made album with solid two post binding. Photographs vary in size, the majority measuring approximately 14 x 8 cm, and the smallest ones measuring 5,5 x 5,5 cm. Wear and minor indication of moisture to boards, mainly at extremities, otherwise in Very Good Condition, internally sound with sharp images. Sri Lanka is featured in 19 photographs, with harbour views of Colombo, including local vendors approaching the British ocean liner to sell their wares. A city tour of Kandy renders lovely scenes now approaching a century in age, including large domesticated elephants, rickshaws passing in front of the colonial Queen's Hotel which was originally constructed as a residence for the Governor of Ceylon, the Royal Palace and moat which surrounds it, a tiered rice paddy, a monument in the Royal Botanical Gardens, and views of Kandy Lake in the heart of the city. Cruising through the Suez Canal, the photographer captures uncommon views of tiny villages along its banks, an industrial compound, the parallel railway, and local men constructing a barrier to one side. Tugboats, sailboats, and a flat passenger riverboat are also in the canal. There are also 19 views taken on the Suez Canal. Five photographs are taken in the busy Port Said harbour in north east Egypt during its active period of commercial development. A large ship is being supplied with coal, while local fishing and merchant boats line the boardwalk behind which is situated the lighthouse and large retail outlets. English products are advertised on large billboards, including The Lipton and Pears Soap. The approach to the Tawahi Port of Aden in Yemen is illustrated in 19 views, with Hogg?'s clock piercing the rocky landscape. [Tawahi was known as "Steamer Point" during Aden's time as a British colony from 1937 to 1963.] An overnight was made in Marseilles, France, affording from Vieux-Port (old harbor) a view of the Chateau d'If island prison famed for the fictitious Count of Monte Cristo Edmond Dantes. Historic monuments are also photographed at the Palace of Versailles, including the exquisite Apollo fountain in the gardens, and long garden path leading to the royal château. At Spithead near the Isle of Wight a naval review was underway, and a fine week-long regatta at Cowes was won by baronet Sir William Portal and his ketch "Valdora." Other places visited include Shanklin, Ryde, Alum Bay, and Seaview Bay with its charmng Victorian and Edwardian buildings, and Wootton Suspension Pier. Some thirty photographs are taken on the Isle of Wight. After a visit to Southampton, the voyage safely piloted by Captain Warner concludes in Tilbury. Homebound, the inland journey includes sojourns to Sonning in Wokingham, Bagnor in West Berkshire, and Marlow in south Buckinghamshire. RMS Maloja was a British steam-powered ocean liner owned by P&O Steam Navigation Co. Her mail and passenger service took her between London, India, China, and Australia from 1923 to 1954, her maiden voyage beginning 2 November 1923. On 18 January 1924 she began running the fortnightly service between Tilbury and Sydney via Colombo and Melbourne. Luxurious and lofty, she quickly earned a reputation for comfort and reliability. She and her sister ship Mooltan were the largest that could comfortably pass through the Suez Canal at that time.. Very Good.
