        Lessons of October 1917

      First edition, offprint - previously appeared as the preface to the first volume of Trotsky's collected works in October 1924. Some scattered rubbing/staining to covers, otherwise a very good, sound copy in original wrappers. Two copies at Duke and Harvard and 3 others appearing at auction in the last 80 years**** Trotsky wrote this history of the struggle within the Bolshevik Party from February to October 1917 and linked it to the failure of the Soviet-inspired German Communist uprising of 1923. It was immediately denounced by Josef Stalin and his henchmen. (University of Glasgow)

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."

        Pictorial Map of the Witwatersrand Gold Fields.

      Johannesburg. Gold Producers Committee. 1924. Folded color lithographic pictorial map, 8 x 24 inches. The color map depicts, in a central position, the city of Johannesburg. Floating above the city is the text: "Johannesburg, the World's Premier Gold Mining City." In the extended environs surrounding the city 16 or more gold mines are identified. Text blocks connected with each mine provide the number of employees ("Europeans and Natives") and the value of the gold extracted in each of the mines to date. Excellent clean condition. The map depicts pictorially "the tableau exhibited by the Transvaal Chamber of Mines." Text in English and Afrikaans. Text on verso (English and Afrikaans) details unfolding events in a narrative titled: "Twenty-four Hours on a Witwatersrand Gold Mine." This is a highly uncommon pictorial map: there are no WorldCat listings for a map with this date, and just two for the more readily available map of 1932, which is an entirely different production, schematic rather than pictorial. Scarce, and in pristine condition. A valuable addition to libraries with holdings emphasizing the history of South African gold mining. Near fine condition.

        The Writings of John Muir (Manuscript Edition)

      Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1924. First edition. Fine. A lovely, Fine set of Muir's works with an original manuscript page bound into the first volume. Manuscript reads: "...such instances are far rarer, than from the terrible appearance of the rocks (struck through and replaced with 'trail'), one would be led to expect (in pencil written above is 'anticipate'); the more experienced, when driven loose, find their own way over the most dangerous places, with a caution..." (published in Chapter 5 of The Mountains of California, discussing the passage of pack animals through "Bloody Canyon"). Number 595 of 750 numbered sets. Bound in the publisher's three-quarter burgandy morocco over cloth boards, marbled end papers, top edges gilt, complete with all text, maps and plates. Hand-colored frontis illustrations in volumes 1 - 8. Volumes 9 and 10 with frontis portraits. Large fold-out map of Yosemite in volume 2. Several volumes with the bookplate of Christopher Magee Steel on the front paste-down. Volume one with an old seller's description tipped onto the front paste-down. One of America's most important naturalists and preservationist - and a monumental figure in both the history of the environmental movement and the state of California. Muir not only founded the Sierra Club, but was instrumental in the establishment of both Yosemite and Sequoia National Park. Though Muir is known chiefly as an American figure, he was born in Scotland - and came over as a boy when his family immigrated to the Midwest. Muir maintained an interest in spirituality and nature from his youth. Indeed, he explored the American wilderness extensively after he finished college, walking at one point over 1000 miles from Kentucky to Florida. Eventually he would settle in Northern California, where he would make his most significant impact, exploring the Sierras and Yosemite. "He knew the mountains and forests of the West as they are known only to one who has dwelt in loneliness among them, hardened his body and nourished his soul in their splendorous solitudes." (New York Times). Fine.

Square octavo, contemporary full maroon cloth, black morocco spine label, marbled endpapers; original paper wrappers bound in. Housed in custom slipcase. $25,000.Fourth Shakespeare and Company printing of Ulysses, issued just two years after the first, inscribed on the front flyleaf, “To A.K. Griggs, James Joyce, Paris 16.vi.934.” With original wrappers bound in. Any copies of Ulysses inscribed by Joyce are extremely rare.“Universally hailed as the most influential work of modern times” (Grolier Joyce 69). After working for seven years on Ulysses, Joyce, desperate to find a publisher, turned to Sylvia Beach of Shakespeare and Company in Paris. “Within a month of the publication, the first printing of Ulysses was practically sold out, and within a year Joyce had become a well-known literary figure. Ulysses was explosive in its impact on the literary world of 1922Â… Then began the great game of smuggling the edition into countries where it was forbidden, especially England and the United States. The contraband article was transported across the seas and national borders in all sorts of cunning ways…” (de Grazia, 27). “Universally hailed as the most influential work of modern times” (Grolier Joyce 69).

Recipient Arthur Kingsland Griggs edited and translated several works, including Léon DaudetÂ’s Memoirs, and also wrote the popular guidebook Paris for Everyman. Original wrappers bound in.Light embrowning and minor chipping (largely confined to the first few leaves) to fragile text, as usual. Moderate marginal stain to page 33, touching still easily legible text. Minor restoration to inner paper hinge at front flyleaf, barely affecting the “P” of “Paris” in JoyceÂ’s inscription. Copies of Ulysses inscribed by Joyce are extraordinarily rare. A handsome copy, most scarce and desirable inscribed.

        Collection of Photographs of War Atrocities in China

      1924. (CHINA). Collection of Photographs of War Atrocities in China. [Canton and Shanghai], circa 1904-1924. Toned bromide and gelatin silver prints, unbound collection. $2500.Explicit collection of original browntone photographs taken during hostilities in China in the first two decades of the 20th century. Photographs are of the most graphic and horrible nature— a documentary photo archive of the anarchy that was China.In the wake of the fall of the Qing Dynasty in 1912, a power vacuum was created in China, with numerous warlords vying for power. These photographs document episodes within that struggle in the Nanjing area. Most of the photographs are of executions ordered at Shanghai by the “Nanking Warlord” Sun ChÂ’uan-fang. Sun, who was also known as the leader of the “League of Five Provinces,” commanded the northern provinces following the end of ChinaÂ’s imperial age. He defeated and killed the bandit leaders ChÂ’ang Wu, Liu Pa, and Hsu Shih Yi, at Huchuang, Lintsing, in January, 1924. Many photographs display the aftermath of the battle and the bodies of the executed bandits. SunÂ’s victory was short-lived, however, and he was overthrown in March 1927 by the Kuomintang- and Chinese Communist Party-led Northern Expedition of 1926-27. Most photographs with contemporary explanations on mount or on separate paper labels. Included in this collection are: 14 photographs were taken between 1900 and 1904. Accompanying them is a letter of provenance on State Department stationery indicating they came from the collection of Robert McWade, U.S. Consul to Canton from 1900-1904, via the U.S. Department of State. Department of State envelope included. The photographs are each 3 by 4 inches. Nine photographs of corpses, decapitations, flayings, and decapitated heads. Accompanying the photographs is a note saying that these pictures were enclosed with a letter dated April 6, 1927. The photographs are each 5 by 3 inches. One photograph, matted, 8 by 5-1/2 inches, showing the decapitated heads of three bandit leaders, One photograph, matted, 4 by 5-1/2 inches, showing the dead bodies of two of the bandit leaders, ChÂ’ang Wu and Liu Pa, dated January 15, 1924. One photograph, matted, 14-1/2 by 5-1/2 inches, showing the corpses of dozens of bandits who were killed in the battle against the three bandit leaders, also dated January 15, 1924. Some wear and fading to all photographs, with a few chips lost. Three photographs split. A unique and horrifying archive.

        Passage to India

      1924. First Edition . FORSTER, E.M. A Passage to India. London: Edward Arnold, 1924. Octavo, original burgundy cloth. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $5800.First trade edition of E.M. Forster’s most famous novel, the last published in his lifetime, the copy of Bloomsbury group hostess and book collector Lady Ottoline Morrell, who frequently hosted Forster at her home, annotated by Morrell and bearing a signed gift inscription from her as well as a tipped-in photograph of Forster captioned by her.Forster's 1921 return trip to India ""had the effect of releasing what was to be judged his masterpiece, A Passage to India"" (DNB). Andre Gide praised Forster's novel, his last published in his lifetime, as ""a miracle of intelligence, tact, irony, prudence and ability"" (Connolly, The Modern Movement 45). David Lean's 1984 film adaptation earned 11 Oscar nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director. A ""Limited Edition"" of 200 copies was printed the same year, no priority established. With three pages of advertisements at rear; without extremely scarce dust jacket. Kirkpatrick A10. This copy belonged to Lady Ottoline Morrell, essentially the Grand Dame of the Bloomsbury group. Physically striking and exceptionally well-connected (her first cousin went on to become the Queen Mother), Morrell was the heart of the Bloomsbury group, bringing together its prominent writers and artists in her London and Oxfordshire houses. In turn, the members of the group treated her homes as social clubs, coming and going at all hours with many adopting the bisexual Morrell as a romantic partner as various points. Indeed, her lovers included Roger Fry, Augustus John, Dora Carrington, Axel Munthe, and Bertrand Russell. However, Morrell was easily bored by romantic matters and her greatest passion was always the arts. Though she was caricatured unsympathetically by many of her friends and lovers—including by Lawrence who is believed to have immortalized her as Lady Chatterley—Morrell nonetheless loved literature. She collected first editions throughout her life, reading them repeatedly and handling them roughly. ""Unlike many celebrity libraries, Ottoline's books bear all the marks of being read and re-read, some to the point of disintegration"" (The Guardian). Morrell was, in fact, responsible for introducing Forster to D.H. Lawrence, an important association for them both. For Forster, Ottaline Morrell was an inroads into the most exclusive circles, but she was also a friend. As far back as October 4, 1913, he wrote to her, ""Every one ought to go to India. There is a desert of purple stone and cold air in Rajputana where I caught some germ that will stop me from ever being ill again."" This copy bears a gift inscription signed by Morrell as ""O"" for Ottoline and reading, ""Philip from O, June 4th 1924."" It also has a laid-in original photograph of Forster reading a newspaper, captioned behind on the pastedown in Morrell's hand. Morrell has annotated the work by writing page references on the rear free endpaper and there is a bit of marginal pencil bracketing in the text. Bookseller ticket.A few tiny spots of soiling to interior, tape residue to front endpapers, some wear to cloth. An extremely good copy with an outstanding association.

        The Price of Freedom: Speeches and Addresses.

      New York: Charles Scibner's Sons, 1924. First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Calvin Coolidge on the half title page. In very good condition with the spine gilt fresh. Calvin Coolidge was the 30th President of the United States (1923-29). A Republican lawyer from Vermont, Coolidge worked his way up the ladder of Massachusetts state politics, eventually becoming governor of that state. His response to the Boston Police Strike of 1919 thrust him into the national spotlight and gave him a reputation as a man of decisive action. Soon after, he was elected as the 29th vice president in 1920 and succeeded to the presidency upon the sudden death of Warren G. Harding in 1923. Elected in his own right in 1924, he gained a reputation as a small-government conservative.

        The Recoil of Electrons from Scattered X-Rays", in Physical Review 23, 4, 1924, pp. 439-449

      FIRST EDITION OF THE 1924 PAPER IN WHICH COMPTON & HUBBARD FIRST CONFIRM & OBSERVE THE PARTICLE NATURE OF ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION (OR THE COMPTON EFFECT) USING WILSON'S NEW CLOUD CHAMBER METHOD. In a 1923 paper, Arthur Compton explained the Compton effect -- the increase in wavelength of X-rays scattered by collisions with electrons. The Compton effect, "the quantum theory of scattering suggested by Compton… assumes that each directed X-ray quantum is scattered by a single electron" (Compton and Hubbard, 1924, 449). Compton ends his 1923 paper by saying that 'the electrons which recoil in the process of the scattering of ordinary X-rays have not been observed'. In this 1924 paper, Compton and John Charles Hubbard, "in order to decide between Darwin's theory and the light-quantum theory… proposed to analyze the maximum energy of the recoil electrons and the relative number of observed recoil electrons to photoelectrons. They arrived at the following result: 'Both from the standpoint of the experimental evidence and from internal consistency of the theory we therefore seem forced to the conclusion that each quantum of scattered X-rays is emitted in a definite direction' (Rechenberg, Historical Development of Quantum Theory, 609; Compton and Hubbard, 1924, 449). "Compton and Hubbard's conclusion in favor of the light-quantum theory was based on counting the number of recoil electrons producing a track of given length in the cloud chamber" (Rechenberg, 609). Compton won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1927 for his discovery of the Compton effect. ALSO INCLUDED: Millikan and Bowen, "Extreme Ultra-violet Spectra", pp. 1-35. CONDITION & DETAILS: Lancaster: American Institute of Physics, 8vo. Complete volume. [vii], 805, [5]. Ex-libris bearing the usual markings on the front flyleaf and pastedown; no other markings save for a tiny gilt stamp at the foot of the spine (see image). Tightly and very solidly bound in blue buckram; gilt-lettered at the spine. Bright and very clean throughout. Very good condition inside and out.

        SAINTED DEVIL, A (1924)

      Paramount 1924 - Vintage original 22 x 14" (56 x 36 cm.) window card poster, USA. Rudolph Valentino, Nita Naldi, dir: Joseph Henabery; Paramount. One of the great poster images of the iconic Rudy in what is, sadly, a mostly lost film (of which less than one reel has survived). This splendid stone lithograph represents him in gaucho outfit (the film was set in Argentina, the locale of his breakaway success, Four Horseman of the Apocalypse), with cigarette dangling from his fingers and a snarl on his face. Poster is entirely unrestored. There is a chip in top right corner, and some abrasion right next to that chip, some scattered pinholes, and a hint of slight age darkening to the blank margins. Colors are perfect and as rich as on the day when this wonderful poster was first printed, VERY GOOD+.

        Zapiski poeta. Povest? [Aufzeichnungen eines Dichters. Erzählung].

      Original-Ausgabe. - Selvinsky war einer der bedeutendsten Vertreter des literarischen Konstruktivismus. Die vorliegende Erzählung ist eine Art Autobiographie des Dichters, der seine Verse hier als Werk des imaginären Lyrikers Evgeny Ney publizierte. - Berühmtheit erlangte die kleine Veröffentlichung vor allem durch die prägnante Einbandgestaltung El Lissitzkys. So nutzte er zwei fotografische Porträtaufnahmen, die er 1924 von Hans Arp fertigte, und belichtete die Negative unterschiedlich, so dass die Profilaufnahme heller und die Frontalaufnahme dunkler geriet, schließlich fügte er beide zu einem Doppelporträt zusammen. Als Hintergrund verwandte er die Dada-Zeitschrift 391, auf den Hemdkragen ließ er den Namen des imaginären Dichters setzen. - Erschienen in einer Aulage von dreitausend Exemplaren. - Die häufig fehelnde Faltkarte hier mit Einriss, sonst hervorragend erhaltenes Exemplar. - Lissitzky-Küppers 121. - Kat. Sprengel Museum 218. - Bowlt/Hernad 73. - Kat. MoMa 750. - Andel, Avantgarde Pagedesign 252.
