Paton, Lucy Allen
American School of Classical Studies at Athens, Cambridge 1924 - First edition, limited to 300 numbered copies. (S-K 960; not in Brenni). The Gennadius collection contained books having a connection, direct or indirect, with Greece and the Greek people. However, it also contained 600+ historic and artistic bindings which show ".the art of bookbinding through some of its most definitely recognised stages.". The earliest binding in this catalogue is from the 15th century, but the library was rich in early Venetian bindings and gold-tooled French bindings from the 16th & 17th centuries. Superbly illustrated catalogue. The 38 plates are done in brilliant chromolithography and describe books such as a 15th-century Venetian calf binding, a number of Greek monastic bindings, bindings by Clovis Eve, Antoine Ruette, Derome, Padeloup, Mearne, and others. Ink inscription in corner of free endpaper. 4to., cloth. vii, 33 pages followed by the plates. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Basis for the 1925 James Cruze film featuring Edward Everett Horton, famous for its fantastic, surrealistic dream sequence, reminiscent of German cinema of the time but unlike anything else produced in America in that era.

NY: Boni and Liveright. 8vo, pp. 237. Two pages in the middle of the text quite darkened from old news clipping that had been laid in, top edges of the boards sunned, o/w a very good tight copy in very good, bright dj. This copy has been inscribed by the producer, Winthrop Ames to George Barbier who played Mr. Cady: "George Barbier as a little souvenir of his 200th performance | Winthrop Ames 17 July 1924." In addition, it has been inscribed by both playrights: "With the deep gratitude of George S. Kaufman" and "There could be no other Mr. Cady in the world. Gratefully, Marc Connelly." A splendid association copy. This was the basis for the 1925 James Cruze film featuring Edward Everett Horton. "Beggar on Horseback" was a hit Broadway comedy of 1924, written by George S. Kaufman and Marc Connelly, expressly intended as a parody of the expressionist dramas that were so trendy just then. Its irrelevant title quotes an old proverb: "Set a beggar on horseback and he will ride to the devil.". [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]

La rivista, che prese il nome della via nella quale aveva la sede, nasceva a Roma per iniziativa di Marguerite Caetani, la direttrice, e si rifaceva all'esperienza di "Commerce" che la stessa Caetani aveva diretto a Parigi tra le due guerre ( 1924-1932) ed alla quale avevano collaborato importanti scrittori come Yoyce, Svevo, Ungaretti, Valery. La rivista si proponeva (e mantenne concretamente le premesse) di aprire spazi alla poesia giovanile ed alle letterature europee. Venne data particolare attenzione a giovani scrittori italiani : Cassola, Soldati, Petroni, Dessì, Elsa Morante, Anna Banti, Bertolucci A., Giorgio Caproni, Fortini, Pasolini e Paolo Volponi. Cessò con la morte dell'editore De Luca nel 1960, con la prospettiva, mantenuta parzialmente, di far uscire periodici quaderni.

Sterling, George [typed signed poem]
Private, 1924. Original typed manuscript of a poem by George Sterling, signed by him at the bottom, entitled "To Charles Warren Stoddard". Date: 1909 or later, since the poem laments Stoddard's death, and Stoddard died on April 23rd, 1909, at Monterey, California. Stoddard, born in Rochester, NY, became a San Franciscan in his teens. He became a widely admired writer and poet, himself, in the late nineteenth century. George Sterling was a protege of both Jack London and Ambrose Bierce; Bierce became so enamored of Sterling's poem [this one] that he included it in his own collected works. 5 four-line stanzas. Laid in is a typed "Note to 'The Lake of Innisfree' "; that note, also by Sterling, is essentially an essay in which Sterling tells of a private publication by John Henry Nash of that William Butler Yeats' poem, and manifests Sterling's admiration of both Yeats and Nash. Also included is the typed verse 'The Lake of Innisfree' itself, presumably also typed by Sterling. See scans. Sterling's poem on Stoddard is an original, and is an extremely beautiful and moving lament on Stoddard's death. Fair enough, since Stoddard himself had earlier written a poem, "To George Sterling", which moved Clark Ashton Smith sufficiently that he included it in his remembrance, "An Appreciation of George Sterling". Serious mutual admiration all around - and I'm going to need a roster card. Condition: a few spots on the original poem, age toning and light wear-wrinkles on all three documents. Overall, Very Good.

ROGERS, Will
Albert & Charles Boni, New York, 1924. 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 and member of the Cherokee Nation, especially with such a fine inscription, are uncommon.
