        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. .

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.

Hint of rubbing to cloth at head and tail of spine panel and two. corner tips, a fine, bright copy in very good, bright four-color. pictorial dust jacket (illustrated by Frank R. Paul) with light wear. and edges and tiny, shallow chipping at spine ends, shallow chipping. along flap folds (a narrow strip of insect damage), and light dust. soiling to rear panel. Overall, the jacket is attractive, and the. fine Paul illustration on the front panel is intact and bright. This. book is rarely found in jacket and this one, with all faults, is a. superior example. (#102711). First edition. Widely acclaimed upon its initial appearance in 1911 as a serial in Gernsback&#39;s magazine, MODERN ELECTRICS, this interplanetary novel by "the father of modern science fiction" is virtually unreadable today. 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).

Text within triple lilac rule. Translated by Ch. Guyot.Original tan pictorial wrappers. A fine copy.Contains twelve of the twenty-two fairy tales in the English edition: Fleur-de-Neige (Snowdrop), Hansel et Gretel (Hansel and Gretel), Cerise ou La Grenouille Mariée (Cherry, or The Frog Bride), Le Pêcheur et sa Femme (The Fisherman and His Wife), Rose-d&#130;Épine (Rosebud), La Gardeuse d&#130;Oies (The Goose Girl), Noir-de-Fumée (Catskin), Saute-Menu (Rumpelstiltskin), Le Vaillant Petit Tailleur (The Valiant Little Tailor), Les Cygnes Blancs (The Six Swans), Le Genévrier (The Juniper Tree), and Les Deux Frères (The Two Brothers). This edition contains the same twelve color plates as the English edition, but not the ten black and white plates. 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).
