        The Land of Mist [in The Strand Magazine]

      George Newnes Ltd., London, June 1925-March 1926, 1925. FIRST APPEARANCE of the Professor Challenger adventure, with exclusive illustrations by Wiley (not included in book-form). 10 original Strand magazine issues, complete with the with preface in June 1926, as published in pictorial paper wraps. Some minor wear, mostly to spines as usual, a few tears in places, December has larger loss (about one third) to backstrip, otherwise a very good set, well preserved in a leather backed collector's box. The third story in the series featuring Professor George Challenger, one of the most memorable characters in speculative fiction. Doyle's other great character beside Sherlock Holmes, Challenger had already starred in two novels 'The Lost World' (1912), and 'The Poison Belt' (1913) and would later appear in 'When the World Screamed' and 'The Disintegration Machine'; Brilliant, witty, insufferable, and blessed with a booming voice and a huge black beard, Challenger is an eccentric and able champion of the human race. Given the author's preoccupation with Spritism at this time, 'The Land of Mist' turned out to be a psychic adventure. Green & Gibson A37, A41, McIlvaine D133.20. BMC No.261, p62-73 'Collecting The Strand'.

        INQUISICIONES. Signed

      Buenos Aires: Proa, imprenta El Inca, 1925 Inscribed to the great Spanish author Ramón Gomez de la Serna First edition. 8vo. A very good or better example in the original light blue wrappers - name erasure on the ffe. [Helft p.28; Becco 50], "Para el amigo y colega Ramón Gomez de la Serna / con el agradecimiento de / Jorge Luis Borges. Buenos Aires 1925" [For the friend & colleague Ramon Gomez of the Serna, with the gratefulness of Jorge Luis Borges. Buenos Aires 1925]. This is Borges' first collection of essays. The publication was limited to 500 copies & it was never reissued. Inquisiciones already contains the seminal concerns that Borges would follow for the rest of his writing life. It was never reprinted, however Borges followed it with Otras Inquisiciones, his most important collection of essays. In Inquisiciones, Borges is firmly rooted in two traditions, both classic & modern. The first is Hispanic, from Quevedo "perfecto en las metáforas, en las antítesis, en la adjetivación, es decir, en aquellas disciplinas de la literatura cuya felicidad o malandanza es discernible por la inteligencia" (perfect in metaphores, in antithesis, in adjectivation, that is to say, in those disciplines of literature whose felicitous or erroneous usage is discernable by the in tellect), & Torre Villaruel to Unamuno, Herrera Reissig, & Ramón Gómez de la Serna & Cansinos Asséns. The second tradition is Anglo-Saxon, from Thomas Browne " un ensayo bastante malo, tal vez el primero que se escribió sobre él en idioma español". ( a rather bad essay - perhaps the first that was written about him in Spanish) [Autobiografía, p.80]) to Joyce, including the idealist philosophy of Berkeley. The Germanic tradition is also present with a translation of 3 poems: "Soy culpable de la españilización de los versos". (I am guilty of the Spanish translation of these verses). It is in "Examen de metáforas" where Borges manifests the formulation of his own rhetoric which governed his writing through his Ultraist years to his later wo rks. However years later he retracts this essay: "basta un solo buen verso no metafórico para probar que la metáfora no es un elemento esencial Otro (ensayo) casificaba las metáforas como si se pudiera prescindir sin problema de otros elementos poét icos, por ejemplo el ritmo y la música". (A single good verse without a metaphor is sufficient to prove that the metaphor is not an essential element. Another (essay) classified metaphors as if one could do away with other poetic elements without any problem, rhythm and music, for example). [Autobiografía, p.80]. An extraordinary Copy.. 1st Edition.

Joseph Conrad (born Jzef Teodor Konrad Nalecz Korzeniowski) (1857- 1924) was a Polish author who wrote in English, after settling in England. Conrad is regarded as one of the great novelists in English, though he did not speak the language fluently until he was in his twenties. He wrote stories and novels, often with a nautical setting, that depict trials of the human spirit in the midst of an indifferent universe. He was a master prose stylist who brought a distinctly non-English tragic sensibility into English literatureWhile some of his works have a strain of romanticism, he is viewed as a precursor of modernist literature. His narrative style and anti-heroic characters have influenced many authors, including D. H. Lawrence, F. Scott Fitzgerald, William Faulkner, Ernest Hemingway, George Orwell, Graham Greene, Malcolm Lowry, William Golding, William S. Burroughs, Joseph Heller, Italo Calvino, Gabriel Garca Mrquez, J. G. Ballard, John le Carr, V. S. Naipaul, Hunter S. Thompson, J. M. Coetzee and Salman Rushdie. Writing in the heyday of the British Empire, Conrad drew on his native Poland's national experiences and on his personal experiences in the French and British merchant navies, to create short stories and novels that reflect aspects of a European-dominated world, while also plumbing the depths of the human soul. Condition: In publisher's cloth bindings with gilt portrait of author to front boards. Externally, generally smart but with slight wear to extremities and occasional marksto boards. Four hinges slightly strained, five strained. Internally, generally firmly bound. Bright and generally clean but with the odd spot to text block edges and occasional handling marks and foxing to endpapers. Slight tidemarks to front endpapersof volume eight and occasionally to text block edge. Overall: GOOD.

        Gouache aquarellée signée Gino Starace pour la couverture de La Robe rouge de Maurice Landay, d'après la pièce d'Eugène Brieux, n°161 du Livre Populaire

      Arthème Fayard 1925 Gouache aquarellée signée Gino Starace pour la couverture de La Robe rouge de Maurice Landay, d'après la pièce d'Eugène Brieux, n°161 du Livre Populaire, Arthème Fayard, décembre 1925. Exécutée sur un carton Canson lavis A à grain satiné de format 17 x 25 cm (marges comprises ; le dessin fait 15 x 24), signée par l'artiste. La cartouche du titre fait partie du dessin original ; un macaron avec le prix de vente est collé. Un papier kraft monté sur le haut du canson vient protéger le dessin. Magnifique état. Giocchino Starace (1859 ? 1950), dit Gino Starace, fut le célèbre illustrateur de la collection du « Livre Populaire » des éditions Arthème Fayard, il en fit un nombre impressionnant de couvertures, choisissant très souvent une scène majeure, violente, étrange, émouvante, du roman, ou bien un portrait saisi dans un sentiment de colère, d'effarement, de terreur. Starace, dit-on, lisait souvent les textes pour choisir la scène qu'il allait composer. Natif de Naples, ce dessinateur italien a dominé presque un demi-siècle de littérature populaire française, grâce à une technique classique irréprochable au service des débordements du genre. Dans Lisibilité, emphase, narrativité (in Tapis Franc n°1, 1988), Daniel Couégnas montre que Starace perçut « la nécessité vitale qui commandait que l'illustration de couverture, cette affiche publicitaire en réduction fût saisie instantanément, appréhendée, déchiffrée de manière univoque par le regard afin de provoquer désir ou curiosité, conditions nécessaires d'une lecture ultérieure du roman ». Il précise que « la force de Starace, c'est sa capacité de synthétiser en une scène les stéréotypes qui renvoient immédiatement le lecteur moyen, médiocrement instruit, à un déjà-lu, ou un déjà-vu, tant historique que dramatique ou psychologique. » Son classicisme marié aux excès mélodramatiques, le choix de couleurs vives, la dynamique du mouvement et l'emphase constituent sa griffe qui culmine avec la folie surréaliste de la série à 65 centimes des Fantômas de Pierre Souvestre et Marcel Allain. Relevons aussi de grands textes de Gaston Leroux (Chéri-Bibi), les Pardaillan de Michel Zévaco, la saga de Rocambole de Ponson du Terrail, Naz-en-l'Air de Souvestre et Allain.

        Maschinenschriftlicher Brief an J. W. Schotman vom 25. IX. (19)25 auf seinem bedruckten Briefpapier mit eigenhändiger Unterschrift "Freud" 1 Blatt, 23 x 14,8 cm

      Prof. Dr. FreudWien IX, Berggasse 1925. IX. 25. Geehrter Herr Doktor! Meine Absicht war nicht, Sie von der wis- senschaftlichen Arbeit abzuschrecken, sondern Sie davor zu bewahren, zu viel mühe und Interesse An eine spekulative Leistung zu wenden, die Ihnen doch nur Enttäuschung bringen würde. Denn Die Teilnahme, welche solche theoretische Arbei- ten erwecken, ist erfahrungsgemäss eine recht geringe. Ich möchte Ihnen gerne ein Thema vorschlagen, aber es ist nicht der richtige Weg, sich ein solches Arbeitsthema von aussen aufdrängen zu lassen. Achten Sie doch lieber darauf, ob Sie nicht bei Ihrer Lektüre eine speziellere, enge umgrenzte Frage finden, welche Ihr Interesse erweckt und die Sie aus eigener Wahl zum Gegen- stand einer Dissertation machen können. Mit den besten Wünschen IhrFreud Ein in Bezug auf Freuds Wissenschafts- und Arbeitsverständnis inhaltsreicher Antwortbrief an den Niederländer J. W. Schotman. Er praktizierte von 1919 - 1921 als Arzt, war während der Korrespondenzzeit mit Freud im Rahmen einer hydrographischen Expedition in Lunghai (China) und fragte wohl bei Freud nach einem Thema für eine weitere Promotion an. Nach seiner Rückkehr war er bis 1942 als Psychiater tätig, übersetzte zahlreiche Bücher und war sowohl Präsident der Niederländischen Übersetzer-Gesellschaft als auch Mitglied des P.E.N.-Clubs. Bei Meyer-Palmedo/Fichtner 1985 h ist ein früherer Brief Freuds vom 7.7.1925 dokumentiert der im teilabgedruckt lautet " Unvermeidlich wendet sich die Sympathie dem jungen Manne zu, der in solcher Abgeschiedenheit an wissenschaftlichen Interessen festhält, arbeitet und spekuliert. Nun kommt für mich die Schwierigkeit. Ich bin ein natürlicher Feind aller zusammenfassenden Spekulationen, Weltanschauungen, Systembildungen ... Ich habe gelegentlich selbst einige Ausschreitungen gewagt und die Beobachtung zum Sprungbrett genommen, um mich in weitgehende Spekulationen zu stürzen. Aber ich muss sagen, es geschah nicht mit gutem Gewissen ... Meine Entschuldigung ist, dass ich vorher ein Menschenalter lange beobachtet, studiert und meine eigenen phantastischen Neigungen eingeschrenkt [!] habe. So meine ich also, die weitumfassende Spekulation sollte man sich fürs Alter vorbehalten ... Nach meinen Erfahrungen hat die Wissenschaft nicht viel von solchen Versuchen ..." Freud selbst nutzte die Schreibmaschine nicht, meist diktierte er Brief seiner Tochter Anna. Am rechten Rand gelocht, das Papier etwas vergilbt.

Die da gewonnenen Erkenntnisse legten S. Freud und ich zuerst in einer kurzen vorläufigen Mitteilung vor, dann in den Studien über Hysterie von Breuer und Freud.
