        SISTER CARRIE

      New York: Boni & Liveright, (1925). Reprint. Hardcover. Area of discoloration to the cloth at the upper right front corner; spine mildly sunned. Very Good or better with a fine association. 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.

        The Great Gatsby

      NY: Scribner's, 1925. First edition, first issue of Fitzgerald’s most famous work, with the six textual variants noted by Bruccoli. Although The Great Gatsby garnered critical acclaim when it was first published, at the time of Fitzgerald’s death in 1940 at age 44, he had largely been dismissed as a writer who failed to reach his full, promising potential. However, Bruccoli notes that a “resurrection” of Fitzgerald began during World War II, when copies of The Great Gatsby were distributed by the Armed Services Editions program. The novel’s popularity soared and has never waned since then; The Great Gatsby is now secure in the canon of American literature. Bound in original dark green cloth, blind-stamped to front cover and gilt-titled to spine. Owner’s initials in pencil on corner of endpaper, two very faint spots to back cover, slight spine lean, else a very fine, clean, and bright copy lacking the rare dust jacket.

For sixty-five years Parrish worked in widely varied fields---book illustration, magazine illustration, posters and advertisements, paintings and murals---rendering realm of the imagination with sharp-focus realism.

Large quarto (13.9125 x 11.4375 inches). "Not until 1920 did [Parrish] agree to illustrate what was to become one of the most valuable children's books ever published, Louise Saunders's Knave of Hearts. Saunders was the wife of Maxwell Perkins, the editor of Scribner's. They summered in Cornish, New Hampshire, and were friends with the Parrishes. In a letter to J. H. Chapin of Scribner's, Parrish wrote on October 24, 1920: 'The reason I wanted to illustrate the Knave of Hearts was on account of the bully opportunity it gives for a very good time making the pictures. Imagination could run riot, not bound down by the period, just good fun and all sorts of things. You must understand all this layout to be in gorgeous color. The landscapes back of the figures in the cover lining-a very beautiful affair illuminated by a golden late afternoon sun: castles, waterfall, rocks and mountains.' Parris relished working three years on the twenty-six paintings for the Knave of Hearts. He built an elaborate castle model in his fully equipped workroom to use in the illustrations for the book.Many of the fixtures in the illustrations show handcrafted items from the Parrish household, such as elaborate hinges and a wonderful clocklike affair.that Parrish had built to let him know when the main house ran out of well water.Knave of Hearts, published in October 1925, was printed in rich colors on heavy coated paper. The illustrations were the highest quality reproductions that could be printed" (Alma Gilbert, Maxfield Parrish: The Masterworks, pp. 49-52).

        The Complete Angler, or, The Contemplative Man's Recreation of Izaak Walton and Charles Cotton

      London- Privately Printed for the Navarre Society Limited, 1925 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A handsome early twentieth century edition of Walton and Cotton'scelebration of the art and spirit of fishing in prose and verse. Bound in cloth with gilt lettering and decoration. With gilt edge tops. Includesseven plates, including frontis, and numerous in-text illustrations. Collated complete. The Complete Angler was conceived as dialogue between men travelling on foot who each represented a different recreation. By this means the art of fishing was introduced, defended, and expounded: its strong precedent in the fishermen apostles of the New Testament was established, the detail of baiting for, catching, and cooking different kinds of fish was catalogued, and the whole was accompanied by aphorisms which would show the reader what it might mean to live well - ODNB. Izaak Walton (1593-1683) was an English writer who seems to have been spent the last forty years of his life in ideal leisure and occupation. The Complete Angler was first published in 1653, but Walton continued to add to it for a quarter of a century. Charles Cotton (1630-1687) was an English poet and writer, best-known for translating the work of Michel de Montaigne from the French, and for his contributions to The Complete Angler. John Major(17821849) was abookseller and publisher whose most famous publication, which he edited himself, was an illustrated edition of Izaak Walton and Charles Cotton's Complete Angler in 1823; there were new editions in 1824, 1835, 1844, and 1847, with many reprints - ODNB. Condition: The binding is generally tight and firm, with once instance of the cords exposed. There is only some slight wear to the extremities, with just some slight bumping. Internally the pages are generally bright and clean, with very light occasional spots to the endpapers. Overall the condition is very good indeed..
