        Original Pen and Ink Illustration of Romantic Couple on the Golf Course

      McClure's 1925 - Pen and ink and wash illustration on Bainbridge artists board. Approximately 15" x 10". Thin line of offsetting or mat burn at the very edges, evidence of previous matting on verso, stamped "McClure's" and pencil note "September, 1925" on verso, very good or better. Image of a young lothario staring intently into the eyes of a flapper with bobbed-haired on the ninth hole of a golf course, while a balding and bespectacled elder gentleman, presumably the flapper's father, takes aim with his club at the cranium of the romantic swain. After a good run as a respected news and literary magazine McClure's remade itself as a women's magazine, and published sporadically until it sputtered to a halt in early 1926. Apparently there was no September 1925 issue of McClure's but we assume this was intended to accompany a story there.

        SISTER CARRIE

      Boni & Liveright (1925), New York - A scarce book in its true First Edition of 1900, this is a fairly early copy of a book rarely found signed let alone with such a superb presentation. This copy INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the front endpaper: "For/George W. Wilder/-The book that/introduced me - but/twenty years after/from/Theodore Dreiser/N.Y. April - 1926." Wilder, president of Butterick Publications, met Dreiser in June 1907, and on the basis of his growing reputation for SISTER CARRIE, hired him as editor-in-chief of his magazine THE DELINEATOR. Dreiser's statement of purpose published in the September issue of the magazine centered around woman's mastery of her own destiny, and he dedicated the publication "to strengthening her in her moral fight for righteousness in the world." Many of the magazine's readers were mothers, and one of the first series of articles that Dreiser commissioned was on the care and feeding of infants by Dr. Leonard K. Hirschberg, articles largely written by H. L. Mencken. Dreiser's relationship with Mencken eventually became one of the most interesting literary relationships of the twentieth century. A wonderful opportunity to obtain an outstanding association copy of one of the groundbreaking literary works of the twentieth century. Though many would not think of Theodore Dreiser as an advocate for women's rights, his first book, SISTER CARRIE, was enlightening in its portrayal of a young single woman's struggle to survive in a post-Victorian urban environment. His work shortly after as editor-in-chief of the magazine THE DELINEATOR, briefly described here, provided further evidence for Dreiser's concern for women's struggle to survive in early 20th century American society. Area of discoloration to the cloth at the upper right front corner; spine mildly sunned. Very Good or better with a fine association [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        The Great Gatsby

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1925. First issue, with the four main issue points present: 1) pg. 60, line 16 "chatter" 2) pg. 119, line 22 "northern" 3) pg. 205, lines 9-10 "sick in tired" 4) pg. 211, lines 7-8 "Union Street station." A Very Good+ copy, on account of a faint dampstain to the cloth on the rear board, also faintly visible on the endpapers. Otherwise a very attractive copy with bright spine gilt and a clean text block. Lacking the rare dust jacket. Despite its grand stature today, the book was a commercial failure during Fitzgerald's lifetime, much to the author's surprise and disappointment. Fitzgerald had felt the power of the novel and believed that it was a work of mature artistry. Modern scholars and readers agree and now "Gatsby" is a keystone of any modern first collection.

Maroon cloth, top edge gilt; cloth a little sunned and marked, with the colour leached from a few small areas near the head of the joints, and some noticeable wear (to two spots on the top edges of the boards, and to the top corners, due to worming); front inner hinge neatly reinforced; mild cockling to the top and bottom margins throughout, with very light tidemarks to the plates in these regions; occasional scattered foxing; notwithstanding, a decent copy with the bookplate of Professor Antonia Bernardes de Oliveira.

        Kleine Beitrage zur Traumlehre (A Small Contribution to Dream Theory).

      Internationaler Psychoanalytischer Verlag, Leipzig 1925 - First edition of this collection of articles relating to the interpretation of dreams, the majority of which were previously published in periodical literature. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed and dated by the author on the front free endpaper, "Frau Margarete Rellner-Weiss mil dem Gruss des Verf. Sigm. Freud 1927 (Mrs. Margarete Rellner-Weiss with greetings from the author)." Bookplate of the recipient to the inside front panel, in near fine condition with a touch of rubbing. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional example, books signed by Freud are scarce.         Sigmund Freud published over 40 books throughout his lifetime, many on the subject of dream theory and interpretation including The Interpretation of Dreams, what most consider to be his greatest and most influential work. Throughout his works, Freud proposed that dreams were forms of "wish fulfillment", or attempts by the unconscious mind to resolve conflicts both recent and far in the recesses of dreamer's past. His Small Contribution to Dream Theory is a collection of short articles published by Freud between the years of 1913 and 1923, which includes Fairy Tale Material of Dreams, A Dream as Means of Proof, Dream and Telepathy, Notes Upon the Theory and Practice of Dream Interpretation, The Limits of Dream Interpretation, The Ethical Responsibility for the Contents of Dreams, and The Occult Significance of Dreams.
