Octavo, original full cream parchment gilt, top edges gilt, uncut and mostly unopened, inner glassine dust jackets with outer blue paper dust jackets. $7500.Conrad did not publish his first novel until the age of 38, but his work earned him a place with the great modernists of the 20th-century, “among the very great novelists in the language” (Drabble, 225). This edition was originally intended to be 377 copies, each signed by Conrad. As he died after having only signed 99 sets, the plan was changed and the signed sheets became part of this Memorial Edition. Includes all of his major and minor works, with several posthumously published stories and essays. Interiors and original cream parchment boards pristine and fine; scarce original paper dust jackets with occasional closed tears, scattered faint dampstaining to some spines. A near-fine set, very desirable in such exceptional condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Great Gatsby

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons 1925 - First edition, first printing. Publisher's dark blue-green cloth, front board lettering stamped in blind, spine lettering stamped in gilt. About near fine, with some faint toning and a slight lean to the spine, light wear to the spine ends, spine lightly starting at the half-title, faint toning to the otherwise clean pages. A very attractive copy. Bruccoli A11. While it has since been regarded as masterful piece of classic literature, The Great Gatsby did not gain popularity until after the author's death in 1940. The novel tells the story of the star-crossed lovers Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan against the backdrop of wealthy and materialistic West Egg, Long Island, during the Prohibition Era. Although Fitzgerald meant the text to be critical of the 1920's social climate, today The Great Gatsby is beloved for its vivid descriptions of extravagant parties, palatial homes, and eccentric characters that are emblematic of the Jazz Age. The text remains extremely popular today and is widely taught in schools across the United States. The first edition was printed in a run of 20,870 copies; today, Scribner's sells almost 25 times as many copies per year as printed books and e-books. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Autograph manuscript (fragment).

      N. p., [c. 1925]. - Large 8vo. 12 pp (numbered 29 to 40). A large portion of her essay "Composition as Explanation", published in 1925. "And so there was the natural phenomena that was war, which had been, before war came, several generations behind the contemporary composition, because it became war and so completely needed to be contemporary became completely contemporary and so created the completed recognition of the contemporary composition. Every one but one may say every one became consciously became aware of the existence of the authenticity of the modern composition. This then the contemporary recognition, because of the academic thing known as war having been forced to become contemporary made every one not only contemporary in act not only contemporary in thought but contemporary in self-consciousness made every one contemporary with the modern composition. And so the art creation of the contemporary composition which would have been outlawed normally outlawed several generations more behind even than war, war having been brought so to speak up to date art so to speak was allowed not completely to be up to date, but nearly up to date, in other words we who created the expression of the modem composition were to be recognized before we were dead some of us even quite a long time before we were dead. And so war may be said to have advanced a general recognition of the expression of the contemporary composition by almost thirty years". - In her essay, Stein connects World War I’s influence on the evolution of warfare (and the shifting consciousness of the citizens and soldiers of those nations involved) to the role of Modernism in the evolution of the arts. - Slightly browned; in pencil.

        [Manuscript]: [Key] to a Knowledge of Nature

      [Circa 1925]. Octavo. 116 typewritten pages, illustrated with five full-page photographic illustrations (three in color) with applied typed captions. Carbon typescript in photographically illustrated papercovered boards. Hand-drawn title page with a picture of a key in the title. Undated but we estimate circa 1925. Some modest erosion and splitting to the paper on the spine of the homemade binding, internally near fine. Inscribed on the front pastedown: "For David E. Sweet from Uncle Ralph Shepard, Author and Publisher." Typed note from the author laid in indicating the painstaking methods that he used to create this volume, and noting that the original of the work "... was used for some time in the nature study class of the school he attended in St. Petersburg, Florida." The book is dedicated in type: "The boy for whom it was first written, and to whom it is Dedicated. Albert Spencer of Florida." In the preface the author states that his belief is that nature is founded on the life of Jesus Christ, and notes that in places he has plagiarized from the Bible, Billy Sunday, William Jennings Bryant, John Burroughs, Neltj Blanchan, Charles Darwin, Joyce Kilmer, Gene Stratton Porter, and others. We could find out little about the author, but Albert Spencer of St. Petersburg appears to have been born in 1915. An attempt to explain nature with details and interesting photographic illustrations. Considering the do-it-yourself typing, binding, and illustrations, presumably no more than a handful were created; and possibly unique. .

        Typed letter signed "Alban" to composer Paul von Klenau

      1 page. Large octavo. Dated Trahütten, September 23, [19]29. On stationery with "Trahütten in Steiermark Post: Deutsch-Landsberg via Graz" typed in red ink at head. With the original envelope postmarked September 23, [19]29 with Klenau's name and address in Copenhagen and Berg's return address in Vienna typed in red ink to verso. Several small corrections, presumably in the composer's hand. In German (with translation). Berg reacts to Klenau's announcement regarding a performance of the Three Fragments from Wozzeck (in an unspecified location). He encloses the sung text of the fragments (enclosure not included) and expresses his wish to meet Klenau again in Vienna during the next season, when Wozzeck will be staged there. "This, my dear Paul, is a big surprise! And it doubly pleases me that you are going to do the Fragments from Wozzeck... not only as a fact, but also because of the friendship that you are demonstrating... Strangely, just today, browsing through old sheet music, I found a program leaf with the texts of the Fragments that you may perhaps make good use of for the performance. Maybe such a program insert would be welcome to an audience not really be informed about Wozzeck... For this season I will have ?- listen and marvel (I myself marvel most of all) ?- eight to ten stages for Wozzeck. Even Vienna among them!... " Very slightly worn; creased at fold; envelope slightly worn and soiled. . Three Fragments from Wozzeck, for soprano and orchestra, was composed upon the insistence of conductor Hermann Scherchen, who hoped to direct a concert suite of pieces from Berg's 1925 opera, Wozzeck. Scherchen premiered the Fragments in Frankfurt on June 11, 1924. Paul von Klenau (1883-1946) was a Danish composer of German descent who was trained in Germany and spent most of his creative life there. From the 1920s, he was close to Schönberg's circle and adopted its dodecaphonic techniques. His last completed work, the Ninth Symphony, received its premiere in Copenhagen in March 2014, almost seventy years after its composition.

However, historically, its impact and the prominence of its author in the SF field, elevates it to cornerstone status in the SF genre. "The literary treatment is on a very low level, but RALPH 124C 41+ is renowned for its many highly imaginative technological projections. These include clear descriptions of radar, book and newspaper microfilms and microfiches, television, plant hormones, wireless transmission of power ... etc." (Bleiler, p. 282).

      (n. p.), (n. d.). Ca. 1925 - some geographic/tourist photographic images dated with captions. Black flexible board photograph album, with green lettering "Photographs" stamped to front board. Tied with a black cord. Album worn and rubbed, with some light scuffing. Some photographs with light fading, others sharp. A VG+ album with About VG to VG+ photographs.. Black album mounting paper, unpaginated but many leaves in rear blank. 58 b/w photograhic images in album, 8 loose and 50 mounted with gold photograph corners. Oblong format: 7-1/4" x 12" Some viewers may be disturbed by photographs in this album. First many pages of album are occupied by b/w photographs of executions during the First Sino-Japanese War in 1894-96. Beheadings, Shootings, skin flayings... all are represented here. Strangely, the exeucution photographs are followed by images of caucasion soldiers smiling toward the camera and on a hillside. Even further, the next pictures show temples and areas in China, typical images of a typical tourist photograph album (were it not preceeded by the gruesome images in the beginning).
