        THE COMMON READER. Signed Association Copy From the library of Victoria Strachey & Mark Holloway.

      Hogarth Press, London 1925 - Woolf. Virginia. THE COMMON READER. Signed Association Copy From the library of Victoria Strachey & Mark Holloway. London: Hogarth Press, 1925. 8vo., 305pp., light grayish blue cloth, second edition issued November - the first was issued in April. A short & amusing Als. from Virginia Woolf tipped to the front free endpaper, reading: "To / Dr. Rendel, / A small dose nightly to / ensure sleep / Virginia Woolf / Christmas 1925". The book is further signed in pencil by F.E. Rendel at the top of the front endpaper. At the corner of the front pastedown is another [very lightly written] inscription that reads: "For Victoria [Strachey] with love from . March 21st., 1951" A very good copy lacking the dustwrapper & showing light general use. There is some spotting to some of the front & back pages, the spine is slightly yellowed & there is a chip to the paper spine label which is mildly tanned. Provenance: Ex Libris; Dr. Frances Elinor Rendel & Acquired from the library of Victoria Strachey & Mark Holloway. [Lytton Strachey was Victoria Strachey's great uncle] - Dr. F.E. Rendel, to whom this letter is inscribed by Virginia Woolf, was Doctor Frances Elinor Rendel (1885 - 1942), the daughter of Lytton Strachey's Eldest sister Eleanor, & was known as Ellie Rendel. At some point in 1924, Dr. F.E. Rendel became the London doctor of Virginia Woolf, Roger Fry & the Bells (Vanessa & Clive). Vanessa Bell writes in a letter to Virginia Woolf of April 23rd. 1927:- "Roger [Fry] comes tomorrow. He was to have come before, but it seems that Ellie [Rendel] nearly killed him, like you, with her new brand of inoculations, and he couldn't start as he meant to." Dr. F.E. Rendel was the doctor treating Virginia Woolf at the very end of her life. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Bronze of an African figure

      [Circa 1925]. First. Bronze figure of a dancing African warrior, armed with shield and spear, unsigned and without obvious foundry information. Approximately 28" high by about 12" at the widest point, and basically two-dimensional, that is, about 1/2" at its deepest point. The dore bronze is finished on both sides, indicating that it was meant to be viewed from either side, thus it was probably intended as an architectural element in a frieze or as a room divider, and is not currently free standing (and would probably best be mounted on granite or marble). Weight is about 24 lbs. The muscular, stylized art deco vintage warrior is reminiscent of the portrayal of African natives generally associated with the Cotton Club, that is, both caricaturized and idealized simultaneously, and is possibly an original architectural feature of that or a similarly themed establishment. The expensive casting process almost certainly indicates that few of these were done, and they are commensurately scarce. Shipping at cost. .

        Original Woman's KKK Hood and Robe

      [Texas. circa 1925]. Original woman's white linen Klan robe, 46" long with 20" long sleeves with original mother-of-pearl buttons affixed. With a 70" long rope belt with tassel intact. The word "crusader" is embroidered in blue thread on both the front and back seams. Red and white felt patch depicting a cross is affixed to half-cape, and is a bit worn. Some spotting and soiling, with occasional light stains, toned and a bit musty, overall about very good. Reasonably good knowledge of the provenance and style indicates that this is likely from Texas.Original second wave Klan robe, circa 1925, presumably made for a member of the WKKK, (Women's Ku Klux Klan). The 1920s saw a resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan, and it was during this time that women formed a supplementary group to the Klan. For the first time they were officially members, with their own titles and a capital in Little Rock, Arkansas. The women's group supported their male counterparts by focusing on the perceived moral, educational, and civic duties of being a white American woman. This was apparently defined by being anti-Jewish, anti-Catholic, anti-immigrant, anti-black, and violent when the need arose. Like so many other "great" ideas, this one too collapsed, and women wouldn't be full participating members in the Klan again until the 1980s.An interesting and compelling artifact which has continued to stand up as a sobering and enduring symbol of American racism and the terror created by it. The painstaking and even loving stitchery seem in marked contrast to the hateful purpose for which it was employed. Klan paraphernalia occasionally comes on the market, but this is the first woman's robe we've encountered. .

      Mount Vernon, New York William Edwin Rudge 1925 - Octavo. 51pp. One of 500 copies. A one-act play, set in Medieval Spain, by the English poet and dramatist T. Sturge Moore. Designed by Bruce Rogers and bound in full golden morocco by Peter Franck, who at one time executed tooled leather bindings for the Roycroft Shop, where he worked alongside Dard Hunter, Louis Kinder, and Sterling Lord.

This binding features a center gilt-tooled design to both boards, fashioned of printers' ornaments that were probably designed by Rogers. Some of the ornaments are repeated in a gilt border to the outer edges of the boards, on the turn-ins, and on the spine, which is in five compartments with gilt lettering to the center compartment. Franck's imprint appears in gilt at the bottom of the spine and on the rear turn-in, which also bears the publisher's imprint. Endpapers marbled. Some uniform toning to spine, else fine.

However, it does contain decorative title border, head- and tail-piece vignettes, and initials not found in the English edition.Danish illustrator and designer Kay Nielsen (1886-1957) "was drawn early on to fairy tales and illustrated many volumes for Hodder & Stoughton: In Powder and Crinoline (1913), East of the Sun, West of the Moon (1914), Hans Andersen&#146;s Fairy Tales (drawings completed in 1912, but first published in 1924), Hansel and Gretel (1925), and Red Magic (Jonathan Cape, 1930), a collections of fairy tales from around the world. Nielsen&#146;s designs unite strong linearity with delicate colouring Characterized by a sense of two-dimensional flatness, Nielsen&#146;s objects and people are highly stylized: foxglove blossoms hang in measured asymmetry; princes and princesses stand on improbably long legs; and their garments billow in gravity-defying parabolas. The power of his illustrations lies in his uncanny ability to retrieve a story&#146;s emotional effect on its reader and to recreate it visually in two dimensions" (The Oxford Companion to Fairy Tales).

        The Writings of William Blake. In Three Volumes. With: The Pencil Drawings of William Blake.

      The Nonesuch Press, London - 1925 (1927 for the Pencil Drawings volume). One of 1500 copies, number 937 (perhaps, the last two numbers are somewhat illegible). Number 1337 of 1550 copies of The Pencil Drawings of William Blake. The writings are bound in marbled boards with cream colored vellum spines. 11 by 8 inches. The Pencil drawing volume is ¾ cloth with beige paper covered boards, measuring 11 5/8 by 9 ½ inches. All housed in tri-folding cloth cases within red cloth slipcases having red leather spines. Titles in gilt on the spines, with five raised bands. Pagination for the writings as follows: xviii, 364; vii, 397; vii, 430 pp. All plates present as called for. The pencil drawing volume is paginated xvi, followed by 82 plates with a page of text preceding each. Complete as issued. A comprehensive gathering of poems, letters and annotations to various people, including Swedenborg, by William Blake, accompanied by many of his illustrations. These writings and illustrations document his artistic vision, both through his finished works and through his thoughts conveyed in his letters. William Blake was a British poet, artist and printmaker, overlooked during his lifetime, but now considered to be one of Britain's best artists. Blake created prophetic poetry and visual arts, often mixing words and images, and which perhaps led many of his contemporaries to consider him mad. Books in GOOD+ to VERY GOOD condition. Spines rather browned and foxed, with minor foxing to the page edges and endpapers. Volume two and three with moderate foxing to the endpapers. General fading to the covers. The Pencil Drawing volume has moderate to heavy foxing to the endpapers, with minor scattered foxing throughout, mostly along the fore edge. Pages intermittently unopened throughout. The tri-folds and slipcases all bear some scuffing, minor soiling and general fading/uneven darkening, most noticeable along the hinges. Leather spines of the slipcases with some scuffs and a few small chips missing. Faint dampstain/area of discoloration to the lower edge of the slipcase of volume 3. The slipcase on the drawing volume is rather mottled along the extremities. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
