        Builders of Modern Indian: MAHATMA GANDHI An Essay in Appreciation

      Calcutta: Association Press, 1924. Rare First Edition, SIGNED AND DATED BY MAHATMA GANDHI. Illustrated with a colour frontispiece portrait and 5 additional portraits from various sources. 8vo, publisher's original paper covered boards printed on the upper cover in black, backed in gray/blue cloth, the spine gilt lettered. 136 pp. A very attractive and well preserved copy, far better than would be expected for a Calcutta printing of the period, the prelims with a bit of age evidence, the spine just a touch toned. SIGNED AND DATED BY MAHATMA GANDHI IN 1926, one of the greatest men of the age. The work is rare in first edition and in collectable condition and we know of no other copy signed by Gandhi. This is an exceptionally early work on Gandhi, published only a few years after he had become leader of the Indian National Congress and was signed a year prior to the publication of his "MY EXPERIMENTS WITH TRUTH".

The "Union of Socialists-Revolutionaries Maximalists was a political party in the Russian Empire, a radical wing expelled from the Socialist-Revolutionary Party in 1906. The Union united agrarian terrorists, the 'Moscow Opposition' and other radical dissidents from the PSR in an independent party. The Maximalists officially split off from the PSR at its Second Congress in Imatra in 1906. Maximalists played a role in both the Revolution of 1905 and the Revolution of 1917. Many former SR Maximalists eventually joined the Russian Communist Party (Bolshevik)….Maximalists were so called because they demanded the full implementation of the 'maximum programme' in the expected revolution: full socialisation of the land, factories and all other means of production. The orthodox Socialist-Revolutionaries wanted to start with land reform but defer socialisation of other means of production. The Maximalists also rejected the PSR's version of a 'two-stage' revolution, a theory associated with V.M. Chernov. According to Chernov, the coming revolution in Russia would not be purely 'bourgeois-democratic' as the Social-Democrats claimed, but would include social and economic as well as political reforms. It would be a 'popular-democratic' revolution, and would transition into a full-blown 'labour-socialist' revolution later on. The Maximalists rejected this as Social-Democratic 'attentism' and argued that the coming Russian revolution would not be able to stop half-way; it was the two-stage theory, not Maximalism, that was unrealistic if it thought the toiling masses, once liberated, would content themselves with a bourgeois republic and gradual reforms."

        MARK TWAIN'S AUTOBIOGRAPHY, With an Introduction by Albert Bigelow Paine

      New York: Harper and Brothers, 1924. 2 volumes. First edition, first state. Portrait frontispiece in each volume. Tall 8vo, publisher’s original dark-blue ribbed cloth gilt lettered on the spines, t.e.g., with a facsimile of Twain’s autograph in gilt on the upper covers. 361, index; 357, index, ads pp. An especially fine and very bright, and very clean set. A beautiful example, as pristine. Rarely encountered in this condition. A BEAUTIFULLY PRESERVED AND ESPECIALLY HANDSOME COPY OF THE FIRST STATE OF THE FIRST EDITION. “As might be expected of anything which Mark Twain wrote, this autobiography is unlike any other ever written-as unconventional and unorthodox as its great author. Always, when the time came for him to go on with the dictation, he chose as his subject whatever was most interesting to him at the moment, regardless of chronological order. For he believed that a man’s thoughts, not his outward acts are his true history, which alone reveal him completely. “The resulting book is a stream of table-talk: anecdotes, humorous and serious; reminiscences of his mother, his daughter Susy, his boyhood days in Missouri; chronicles of his friendships with all manner of men, from General Grant and President Cleveland to his Irish coachman and the unfamed intimates of his vagabond youth; bold expressions of opinion on every sort of topic-all are here, full of the vigor and the humanity of their author, and forming an inexhaustible mine of entertainment, amusement, and delight.” Dictated by Twain over several years with the stipulation that it be published after his death.

        Four Pooh Books, Comprised of:] WHEN WE WERE VERY YOUNG [and] WINNIE-THE-POOH [and] NOW WE ARE SIX [and] THE HOUSE AT POOH CORNER

      London: Methuen and co., 1924, 1926, 1927 1928. First Edition of each volume. Illustrated by E.H. Shepard throughout each volume. 8vo, beautifully bound by Bayntun-Riviere in fine full gilt decorated morocco. Each volume is bound in a colour to match the original cloth covers. The spines are richly gilt, the covers are pictorially decorated in gilt with images of Pooh and his friends. The original covers and spine panels are bound into the rear of each book. All volumes are housed together in a cloth covered slipcase. An elegant production. x,100; xi,158; x,103; xi,178 pp. All copies are very fine and beautifully preserved. VERY FINE COPIES OF THE FIRST EDITIONS OF EACH OF THE FOUR POOH BOOKS, BEAUTIFULLY BOUND. These charming children’s classics contain delicately detailed illustrations and some of the most beloved stories of all time. From the first poem or story to the last drawing, the reader is transported to another world of imagination and youthful play. “When We Were Very Young” was the first of the “Pooh” books and was extremely successful in both America and England. Ironically, when A.A. Milne was first presented with the possibility of Ernest Shepard being the illustrator for this first Pooh book, he was less than pleased, having never been particularly drawn to Shepard’s style. But the illustrator won out in the end and the rest is legend. The book’s success in both America and England was phenomenal, and it went through six printings in just one year and six more the next. The public voraciousness for his work inspired Milne to follow WHEN WE WERE VERY YOUNG with WINNIE THE POOH, NOW WE ARE SIX, and THE HOUSE AT POOH CORNER. Some of the most cherished and beloved verses of our time rest on the charmingly illustrated pages of this first volume in the series of books that have become timeless classics. This book is dedicated to Milne’s son, Christopher Robin Milne, who “prefers to call himself Billy Moon.” The second book in the series is WINNIE THE POOH and the one included here is a beautiful copy of the most famous of the four Pooh books. Milne's classic story, all about Christopher Robin, Winnie-The-Pooh, and their friends Eeyore, Piglet, Rabbit, Owl, Kanga, and Baby Roo. WINNIE-THE-POOH came into being in the wake of his first book of verse, WHEN WE WERE VERY YOUNG, which was the first collaboration of Milne’s words and E.H. Shepard’s delightful illustrations. Milne and Shepard truly ascended to harmonious heights with the cast of characters in WINNIE-THE-POOH based on the stuffed animal collection of Milne’s own son, Christopher Robin, who also became immortalized as one of the main characters in the Pooh series. “E.H. Shepard’s illustrations to A.A. Milne’s POOH stories form without doubt one of the great classics of children’s book illustration. It is important to understand, however, how remarkable that is for Shepard’s success as an illustrator was not based on the technical power of draughtsmanship we see in the work of artists such as Rackham. We do not go with him for a prolonged journey of the eye as we do with the great masters of drawing. His illustrations are classics for a wholly different reason. Our approach must be through the eyes of childhood, for Shepard’s Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, and Tigger cast their compulsive spell because the artist only ever makes them but very slightly removed from the stuffed toys on the nursery shelf. Whereas Beatrix Potter’s animals are almost transformed into furry occupants of the same domain, in the case of Shepard the journey is made in precisely the opposite direction... There is a slightness to them, a delightful, rapid, thrown-off quality... Shepard’s genius lay surely in being able to match exactly the mood of Milne’s texts which have a similar and complementary rambling quality. A less whimsical artist would have upset the balance. As it is, writer and illustrator were perfectly allied in a curiously English way, achieving thereby one of the great classics of childhood literature” (THE POOH SKETCH BOOK, Sibley.) The third book in the quartet written by Milne, inspired by his young son Christopher, and illustrated by Shepard was an instant success. Like WHEN WE WERE YOUNG, NOW WE ARE SIX is a joyful combination of verse and pictures designed to captivate young readers. Christopher Milne wrote of his father’s stories: “It is difficult to be sure which came first. Did I do something and did my father then write a story about it? Or was it the other way about, and did the story come first? Certainly my father was on the look-out for ideas; but so too was I. He wanted ideas for his stories, I wanted them for my games, and each looked towards the other for inspiration. But in the end it was all the same: the stories became part of our lives; we lived them, thought them, spoke them.”-Enchanted Places. Most likely it was this unique collaboration between father and son which makes these little stories and poems so intimate and personal. THE HOUSE AT POOH CORNER is the last of the four beloved Pooh books. In this charming offering Eeyore’s friends employ “Brains first and then Hard Work” to build him a house. There are also big happenings for Tigger in this volume and Rabbit has a very busy day. Milne had bought a country house in Sussex, and it was there that many of his poems were set. Amid fields, under cherry trees, in rustic barnyards, and down by the pond, these poetic yarns lead young minds to a refreshing holiday in nature. And, as always, Shepard’s drawings capture our hearts with their endearing images of a boy and his roly-poly teddy bear, their endless adventures, and much much more. These buoyant illustrations are sure to bring a smile to the innate child buried somewhere within each of us. And who can resist the charm of Milne’s writing when in a P.S. to his introduction he notes: “Pooh wants us to say that he thought it was a different book; and he hopes you won’t mind, but he walked through it one day, looking for his friend Piglet, and sat down on some of the pages by mistake.”Dense with wonderful poems and illustrations, these books started the public off on a love affair with some of the most memorable characters in all of children's literature. A complete set of the limited signed editions in such outstanding condition and in the scarce dustjackets is a rare treasure for those of us who love Winnie, Christopher Robin, Piglet and the rest of the citizens of the “100 Aker Wood”.

        THE YOUNG KING AND OTHER TALES

      Chelsea: Ashendene Press, 1924. ONE OF 65 COPIES PRINTED ON PAPER (and seven on vellum). Hardcover. Presented by "Rosamund" Hornby,But in her Printer-Father's Handwriting. 213 x 146 mm (8 3/8 x 5 3/4"). 3 p.l., 111 pp., plus integral blank leaf at end. ONE OF 65 COPIES PRINTED ON PAPER (and seven on vellum). Original patterned paper boards of rust and green, paper spine label. Hand-painted red and blue initials by Graily Hewitt. Printed in red, blue, and black in Subiaco type. Front flyleaf inscribed "With love from Rosamund / July, 1924." Spine just slightly cocked and faintly darkened, tail of spine a little bumped, otherwise a fine copy of a work difficult to find in pleasing condition--the binding with almost no wear, and the text especially clean, fresh, and bright. This hefty little occasional volume was a gift for Rosamund M. Hornby on her 10th birthday. Franklin says, "Of the three presents for the printer's family . . . , none could touch the excellence of this" one. It contains four children's stories by Wilde: "The Happy Prince," "The Star-Child," "The Selfish Giant," and "The Young King." All are morality tales extolling the virtues of selflessness, generosity, and consideration of others. They were apparently taken to heart by Hornby's young daughter: Rosamund Hornby Holland-Martin (1914-2001) was chairman of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children for 20 years, and served the organization devotedly for half a century. In honor of her charitable works, she was made a Dame of the British Empire in 1983.

        Passage to India, A

      London: Edward Arnold, 1924. First Impression. Cloth. Near Fine. First British trade edition (no additional printings noted on the copyright page). 8vo: [4], 5-325, [3, publisher's advertisements for earlier Forster's titles]pp, without half-title (as issued). Original vertically ribbed wine-red cloth, the spine and upper board lettered in black, the bottom edge untrimmed; collector's blind stamp to the title page. A Near Fine copy, without the scarce dust jacket, the cloth a shade darkened in spots, first few leaves with scattered spotting, page margins slightly age-toned, but a quite collectible copy of this classic. Kirkpatrick A10a. Connolly Modern Movement 45. Time 100. According to the Literary Encyclopedia, Forster's last and best novel, the title taken from a poem by Whitman, gestated during a ten-year period that spanned the First World War, Gandhi's return to India from South Africa and the start of his civil disobedience campaign, the First Government of India Act, an upsurge in Indian Nationalist feeling, British promises of Independence, and the massacre at Amritsar. "Mindful of the imponderables of human conduct, alert to all the reciprocal misjudgments and the wearying false appraisals we make as a matter of course, he looked at empire and saw its weak foundations. . . . In his other great novel, Howard's End, Forster directed us to "only connect." What he demonstrates here, in a story of the greatest and saddest subtleties — and comic subtleties, too — is how nearly impossible that is to do." (Time 100) Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        In Our Time

      Paris: Three Mountains Press, 1924. 30pp. First edition. One of 170 copies. Illustrated with a frontispiece author portrait by Henry Strater, an American painter and fellow expatriate who became friends with Hemingway in Paris. This is the author’s second book, published in a smaller edition than his first, a pamphlet of which 300 copies were printed. The sixth and final volume of a series of works by important modern writers, edited by Ezra Pound, titled “The Inquest into the State of Contemporary English Prose.” The book contains eighteen terse, untitled chapters, which Edmund Wilson called “dry compressed little vignettes.” A book with the same title was published in the US the following year containing fifteen short stories for which the chapters in the present edition served mainly as introductory vignettes. Only two vignettes from this book were titled and used as full stories: “A Very Short Story” and “The Revolutionist.” Most reviewers saw an affinity to Gertrude Stein in Hemingway’s spare prose style, and F. Scott Fitzgerald felt “a sort of renewal of excitement at these stories wherein Ernest Hemingway turns a corner into the street.” In tan boards, printed in red with a pattern of clippings from newspapers in several languages, and the title in black. Slight wear to extremities, else a very fine copy. Housed in a leather-backed slipcase with chemise, which shows some wear.

        in our time

      Paris: Three Mountains Press. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION, number 80 of only 170 copies, of Hemingway's second book - the book that would define his style and help launch his career. Printed on Rives hand-made paper and with woodcut portrait frontispiece after Henry Strater. "From their first appearance in 1924, the in our time chapters have been recognized by their author, readers, and critics as profoundly compelling prose in an altogether new form. '[I]t is where I think I have gotten hold of it,' Hemingway wrote to Edmund Wilson a few months after finishing them (25 Nov. 1923, in Selected Letters 105). Wilson, the most influential critic of his time for Hemingway's generation, agreed: '[H]is prose is of the first distinction,' Wilson declared in on of the book's first reviews and added, 'he is… strikingly original, and in the dry compressed little vignettes of In Our Time [sic], has almost invented a form of his own' ('Dry Points' 120)… "Numerous other reviewers, who had never heard of Ernest Hemingway, shared Wilson's enthusiasm, and even those repelled by Hemingway's violent subject matter acknowledged the power of his prose. Fellow writers, too, recognized that, as Scott Fitzgerald put it in recommending the book to his publisher, 'He's the real thing.'" (Cohen, Hemingway's Laboratory: The Paris in our time). Provenance: With decorative bookplate of Helen Hamilton by the noted American artist Ralph Fletcher Seymour on front pastedown. Hamilton is possibly the American writer and political activist Helen Hamilton Gardener (1853-1925). Paris: Three Mountains Press, 1924. Tall octavo, original publisher's decorated tan paper boards; custom cloth box. A few spots of rubbing to spine, one corner lightly bumped; boards a little bowed; usual discoloration to endpapers. A very nice copy. With only 170 copies printed, the scarcest of all Hemingway titles.

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf. 1924. First American edition. Hardcover. Near Fine-. 2 volume set of this First American Edition of Mann's acclaimed novel. 389 & 359 pp. Hardcover, black cloth, red titles; black and red endpapers; 8vo. Near Fine- copies in Very Good dust jackets. Head and foot of spines show light bumping; else, boards are tight and clean. Bright and clean contents; unmarked text. The only real flaw to these books is that they smell like their previous owner smoked a pack a day. Sound bindings and hinges. DJs show fading at spines and light soil elsewhere; the jacket of the first volume shows shallow chipping at spine head and foot and some separating at folds, but it is still intact, small pencil note at inner flap; the second volume's jacket is separated at the bottom 3/4 of the front hinge, very shallow losses at head and foot of spine. Both show shallow loss at corners; the image on the front panel of either volume has remained clean and unblemished. Unfortunately, the jackets seems to have the same smoky odor.
