        An Onlooker in France, 1917-1919

      London: Williams and Norgate,, 1924. Revised and Enlarged Edition. Quarto. Original sand cloth, title in black to spine. With the dust jacket. Frontispiece and 95 other plates. Foxing to the edges, negligible encroachment in the margins, else very good in similar jacket. This edition published 3 years after the first, there were no intervening editions. "Sir William Orpen writes as he paints; that is to say, there is a hint of mockery in his words, especially when he is dealing with those whom the world calls great. The fighting man he loved, and we find a good deal of affection and respect in him for the fighting man's leaders, at least for a number of them. The politicians whom he met at the Peace Conference in 1919 he neither loved nor respected. His mordant wit and keen but slightly distorted observation - the observation of a satiric artist - makes his book one of the most remarkable of its kind" (Falls). Uncommon edition, distinctly uncommon in jacket.

        St. Joan. A Chronicle Play in Six Scenes and an Epilogue . . . with Sketches by C.[harles] Ricketts

      London: Constable, 1924. Folio, (6), 182, (2)pp. With 16 color illustrations by Ricketts tipped-in. Designer binding of white and brown full polished calf, covers tooled in gilt and blind, inlaid lettering on upper cover ÒSaint JoanÓ in red morocco. Minor restoration to backstrip, a very good copy in slipcase. Limited to 750 copies, this copy in a unique and quite beautiful binding designed by Gisele Aron and executed by Zaehnsdorf; it was purchased by the previous owner in London in 1958, and thus was probably created c. 1950-55. Surely the most beautiful printing of any of ShawÕs plays, this excellent edition on hand-made paper deserves a fine binding of this quality. Ricketts is best remembered for his work with the Vale and Eragny presses, and in the theatre as a set and costume designer.

        Fairy Tales Illustrated by Kay Nielsen

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, [1924]. 4to, 197pp. With a tipped-in frontispiece and 11 color-plates with captioned tissues, and monochrome drawings throughout the text, many full-page. Full midnight blue crushed morocco extra, inset panel on upper cover with inlaid illustration in colored moroccos of a man carrying a child, backstrip gilt, gilt edges, a superb showcase binding by Bayntun c. 1960 that is very slightly faded (perhaps from being in a showcase?) Limited to 500 copies signed by Nielsen. Danish artist Kay Nielsen (1886-1957) was the son of the director of the Royal Danish Theater and after art school he was quickly recruited as a book illustrator; his Fairy Tales was delayed for a year so as not to compete with another version illustrated by Robinson. That edition is now little known whereas this version is one of the best known illustrated books of the century. He turned to stage design for the Danish State Theater and only illustrated three more books before moving to Hollywood where he designed sets for movies and acted in small walk-on parts. He died in California in 1957.

A soft patchwork of farmland lays softly across rolling hills broken up by clumps of yellow trees. The excellent quality of framing and pristine condition makes this print especially desirable. Walter Joseph Phillips (October 25, 1884 – July 5, 1963) was an English-born Canadian painter and woodcutter, acclaimed as one of Canada's most famous printmakers and for popularizing the colour woodcut in the style of the Japanese. His artistic career spanned from the 1900s through the 1940s, during which time his work was exhibited throughout North America and Great Britain. In 1940 he was asked to become a resident artist at the Banff Centre, then known as the Banff School of Fine Arts, where he played an important role in the development of their visual arts program- It's Walter Phillips Gallery, which focuses on contemporary art, is named after him. The Glenbow Museum in Calgary, Alberta holds an extensive collection of Phillips works and a research archive..

        Edmond-Henri Crisinel *

      Cully 1924. - Photographie originale signée d'Emile Gos, tirée en noir au format de 35 x 28, du tableau original de l'artiste figurant l'écrivain, contresigné, daté et situé par Géa à l'encre noire, sous encadrement soigné à fine baguette de bois naturel 52 x 40. Ce surprenant portrait en buste de l'écrivain, d'une rare délicatesse, fait partie des oeuvres de jeunesse de Géa, dont la très grande majorité a disparu. Il précéderait de peu sa période simili-cubiste et surtout, de deux ans, le présumé premier portrait peint cité (par méconnaissance dans l'ouvrage de Beaudin), celui d'Elie Gagnebin. L'artiste en pleine jeunesse et possession de ses moyens, encore étudiant aux beaux-arts, y a figuré son sujet en demi-teintes, déjà tenté par le côté obscur. Bien qu'il soit difficile de comparer ces deux incunables, disposant d'une reproduction de grand format en noir de qualité très professionnelle de la première et d'une plus modeste colorée de la seconde, nous ne serions néanmoins pas étonné de partager avec d'autres amateurs le regrets que ce ne soit pas cette dernière qui ait été égarée, tant elle semble fadasse par rapport à la précédente.Précieux document, faute d'original à se mettre sous la dent.Signalons en passant un portrait-charge du poëte, daté de 1943 et reproduit dans le recueil pré cité, tout ce qui nous reste de Géa, de moindre intérêt.[Expo Clerc-Crisinel 1 - BCU/Musée Cantonal des Beaux-arts 1958; Antoine Beaudin: Géa Augsbourg 1902-1974, pages 19,86,96]

        THE ILLITERATE DIGEST

      New York: Albert & Charles Boni, 1924. First Edition. cloth. About Fine, lacking a dustwrapper. Blue cloth. Illustrated with drawings. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the front endpaper nearly filling the page: "To/J.C. Calhoun/a Friend/from/Will Rogers/(almost an author)/New York. Nov 15, 24." Rogers was born in Indian Territory in 1879 and had some Native American blood in his veins. He began in vaudeville and moved on to motion pictures, a career that was cut short when he died in a small plane crash in 1935 near Point Barrow, Alaska. Perhaps he was best known, however, for his syndicated newspaper column which had such a massive following that the proposition that he run for President was once seriously advanced. His saying, "All I know is what I read in the newspapers," became a popular catchword of the times. Books signed or inscribed by this most popular of American humorists, especially with such a fine inscription, are uncommon.

Mynors Bright, M.A., from the shorthand manuscript in the Pepysian Library, Magdalene College, Cambridge. Edited with additions by Henry B. Wheatley. FINE CONTEMPORARY TERRA COTTA CRUSHED MOROCCO BY SANGORSKI & SUTCLIFFE (signed on front turn-ins), double gilt fillet border on covers, upper covers with gilt insignia incorporating the initials "S P," crossed anchors, and looping ropes with Pepys' (misspelled) motto in Latin on a ribbon above it, raised bands, spines gilt in double-ruled compartments with central ornament of either a crown, a sailor's knot, an anchor, or crossed quills, turn-ins ruled in gilt, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt.

Pepys' diary is available in various editions (see, for example, items #140 and 169); the chief value of the present printing is that it is done on India paper, allowing the full substantial text to be contained in a very manageable space. And the compactness of this edition is here very much enhanced by the bindings, made with high quality morocco and expertly finished. (The Sangorski Latinist has, however, fallen short of perfection: Pepys chose as his personal motto "mens cujusque is est quisque," or "what a man's mind is, that is what he is," but here the first word is unfortunately spelled "mons," Latin for "mountain.").

        A PASSAGE TO INDIA

      1924 - [signed by Forster] London: Edward Arnold & Co., 1924. 3 pp undated ads. Original maroon cloth lettered in black. First Edition of Forster's famous novel of India, in which the English community is portrayed as quick to condemn an Indian doctor accused of assaulting a young Englishwoman.~.Forster's most famous novel, and the last one he wrote. There was considerable criticism of his portraits of the English in India. Forster made a humane and liberal Englishman, Fielding, a rare exception and this was less than fair. But his diagnosis of the less than perfect relationship of the Indian to his Anglo-Saxon overlord as arising from insensitivity and arrogance on the one hand, and generations of endured rudeness and condescension on the other is accurate as a factor in politics, as many non-Englishmen can testify. Forster was frequently asked why he stopped writing novels [he lived 46 more years]: 'I have nothing more to say,' he replied. [CGEL]~This volume (without half-title, as issued) is in remarkably fine, bright condition. Usually maroon cloth spines become severely faded, but with this copy any such fading is all but imperceptible. Furthermore, this copy is signed by Forster on the title page, where he has stricken through his printed name and replaced it with his signed name. In addition to trade copies such as this, there were 200 signed copies in a different binding -- but signed trade copies, such as this one, are considerably scarcer. Kirkpatrick A10a; Modern Library 100 #25. Housed in a morocco-backed clamshell case. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
