        Wylye Vale [Original Colour Woodcut Print on Paper]

      1924, edition Unknown. () Fine. 8.25 X 9.5 CM (3.25 X 3.75 inches) original colour woodcut print on paper. In 5 CM (1.5 inch) wooden frame painted a blue-grey with gilt border inside and only very slight wear.

Frame measures 26.75 X 31 CM (10.5 X 12.25 inches). Metal wire hanger across back. A pencil notation of the the name is below the image to the left and across from this, to the bottom right of the image, is Phillips' signature (also in pencil). With Master's Gallery provenance label on back. Boulet MBL78. Edition unknown. For a reproduction of the image see page 74 in Boulet "The Tranquility and the Turbulence". Image from the families stay in the English Countryside (Wylye) near the beginning of their stay in England in 1924-25. A warm and friendly image depicting a broad and beautiful valley. 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.

        THE DIARY

      London: G. Bell and Sons Ltd, 1924. Hardcover. 187 x 121 mm (7 3/8 x 4 3/4"). Eight volumes bound in three. Transcribed by the late Rev. 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. With frontispiece portrait of the author. Spines lightly and uniformly sunned toward pink, otherwise AN EXTREMELY PLEASING SET IN BEAUTIFUL CONDITION inside and out. 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]

        POEMS

      London: Constable & Co., 1924. Rare First Edition. Limited to 750 numbered copies only. Large 8vo, publishers original blue cloth lettered in gilt and stamped in blind, t.e.g. xii, 434 pp. A superior copy of this very scarce book, fine and bright and unusually well preserved, without wear or blemish. RARE FIRST EDITION OF THE POEMS. The first publication of Melville’s collected poems and the first time that many appear in print. Appearing for the first time “Author’s note (on the use of expletives)” pg. 129, “Miscellaneous Poems” pp. 297-349, and “At the Hostelry” pp. 351-434. Between 1875 and 1920 Melville had fallen deep into obscurity. William P. Trent's A HISTORY OF AMERICAN LITERATURE, 1903, gives Melville but three pages out of 593, and Wendell and Greenough's A HISTORY OF LITERATURE IN AMERICA, 1904, gives him nothing at all. The author's star began to rise in 1921 with the publication of Weaver's biography. The first volume of the collected works was published the following year and did much to expand American awareness of Melville's art. It stands alone as a truly important edition with the inclusion of 'The Poems' and 'Billy Budd,' both of which were here published separately for the first time. ‘The Poems’ appears as Volume XVI of the Standard Edition set.

Howard Watt, 1924. Original maroon cloth with affixed front cover color illustration. First American Editions. Just as Verne wrote a sequel to Edgar Allan Poe's NARRATIVE OF ARTHUR GORDON PYM with his AN ANTARCTIC MYSTERY (1897), so too did he write, three years later, SECONDE PATRIE (SECOND FATHERLAND) as a sequel to Johann Wyss's THE SWISS FAMILY ROBINSON. (In Verne's Preface to the original French edition, he noted that THE SWISS FAMILY ROBINSON and ROBINSON CRUSOE were his two favorite boyhood stories.)~It would be almost a quarter-century after the original 1900 French edition before this title came out in English -- in these two volumes, first in 1923 by Sampson Low of London, then a year later by G. Howard Watt of New York (as here). During the delay in publishing this in English, which included the Great War, the era of the magnificent pictorial trade binding had unfortunately come to an end.~These are fine, clean copies.

        Physiology Lab Notebook

      Toronto Toronto, 1924. Good condition with moderate usage wear to cover, including edge bumping, smudges and abrasions, as well as overall age toning to all.. Quarto. 192 pages; lined notebook-style paper; handwritten throughout; illustrated with graphs and affixed photomechanical charts; tan cloth boards, partially overlaid with textured black paper, to which a stamp with handwriting has been applied. A truly unique object that details the weekly experiments of a student physiology lab at the University of Toronto in the fall of 1924. Ostensibly belonging to one G. M. Fletcher, yet written in three different hands, this highly-detailed notebook offers a fascinating account of the various muscle trials that the medical students were conducting, including each lesson's object, method and result. An especially fascinating aspect of this notebook is the photomechanical reproductions of each week's graphical results, which are affixed throughout the book within the written narrative of the experiment. To produce these, it appears that the school used a version of Augustus Waller's electromyography machine, which projected muscle movement trace from an electrometer onto a photographic plate; this allowed the movement to be recorded in real time, and for copies to be easily made for each student. These notes and graphs fill approximately half of the notebook. A sign of how arduous the lab was - and perhaps how frustrating - is evident from an amusing codicil written on the very last page, which reads in part: The Purpose of this exp. is exp. exp. exp. exp. exp. exp. exp. exp. exp. exp. experiment experiment experiment experiment... Also, The more one attempts to move the cause of dissatisfaction, The more one is impressed by the difficulty encountered in such a project. It appears that physiology may not have been these students' favorite subject.

        MOCK BEGGAR HALL

      London: Published by Leonard & Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press, 1924.. Small quarto. Pictorial boards after a design by William Nicholson. Competently rebacked in black cloth, corners bruised, some scattered foxing and general thumbing and use, two leaves have short, closed tears at the fore- edge, but overall, a sound and reasonably good copy. First edition. With Graves's presentation inscription in the month of publication: "John Crowe Ransom from Robert Graves: in all friendship. May 28th 1924." Graves had two poems accepted for publication in the December 1922 issue of THE FUGITIVE, of which Ransom was co-editor. The two poets embarked on a path of mutual admiration and assistance, Ransom asking if he might dedicate a book to Graves ("...because you represent as I see it the best tendency extant in modern poetry"), and Graves seeking a British publisher for Ransom's work, a task he completed with the editing of GRACE AFTER MEAT, to which Graves also contributed an introduction. As a side note, Ransom was instrumental in forwarding Graves' interest in, and acquaintance with, Laura Riding, who was then publishing in THE FUGITIVE and had recently been making life complicated for certain members of the Vanderbilt circle. He sent to Graves some of her unpublished verse, and described her as "brilliant," and in a fine example of understated diplomacy, as "very fine personally, but very intense for company." WOOLMER 46. HIGGINSON & WILLIAMS A10.
