        Collected Works

      1925. Signed. CONRAD, Joseph. The Collected Works. Garden City: Doubleday, 1925-26. Twenty-three volumes. Octavo, original full cream parchment gilt, top edges gilt, uncut and mostly unopened, inner plain paper dust jackets with outer blue paper dust jackets printed on spines. $7500.Signed limited ""Memorial Edition,"" number 57 of only 99 sets signed by Conrad, with engraved frontispiece plate in each volume. Sets of the complete works of Conrad are scarce; signed sets are particularly rare. A beautiful set in the original dust jackets. Conrad did not publish his first novel until the age of 38, but his work earned him a place with the great modernists of the 20th-century, ""among the very great novelists in the language"" (Drabble, 225). ""Conrad's work at its best achieved a synthesis of theme, treatment, and language of a kind without precedent in English literatureÂ… Novelty of theme and the piquancy of a non-English origin established him as a romantic, almost as a legendary figure. His stories had excitement of a new kind, and his style, by its very queerness, could allureÂ… powerfullyÂ… achieving a perfect equilibrium of pictorial and narrative style"" (DNB). This edition was originally intended to be 377 copies, each signed by Conrad. As he died after having only signed 99 sets, the plan was changed and the signed sheets became part of this Memorial Edition. Includes all of his major and minor works, with several posthumously published stories and essays. Minor chipping to edges of some wrappers only. Fine condition.

        Ex Libris: 15 M dirytin a D evoryt [15 Copperplate Engravings and Woodcuts]

      Karel Novotný and Uh. Hradišti, Brno 1925 - SIGNED. One bookplate is missing. Fourteen tipped-in bookplates mounted on green paper, housed in a folding printed paper portfolio, with folded sheet comprising title page, introduction, and colophon laid in. List of plates pasted to verso of rear portfolio cover (as issued). Three-panel portfolio has split along most of its length at both folds.Toning and short tears to portfolio.The bookplates themselves, printed on a variety of papers, are crisp and clean. Two of the plates are mounted on a darker, slightly smaller paper, implying that they may originally come from a different copy. Portfolio measures 16.5 cm x 21 cm closed; mounting papers measure 15 cm x 20.5 cm; bookplate measurements vary. Signed by Bocho áková-Dittrichová in pencil on title page of introductory leaflet. Number 100 of an edition of 150.A wonderful collection of images celebrating reading, study, and well-appointed libraries. Bocho áková-Dittrichová primarily worked in woodcut, so the engravings are a rare and interesting component of this early work.Helena Bocho áková-Dittrichová (1894-1980) was the first female wordless novelist, and the only woman to work in this medium during its heyday. She was born in the Moravian region of what is now the Czech Republic and spent most of her life in Brno, the Moravian capital. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and in 1923 received a government scholarship to study printmaking in Paris. Bocho áková-Dittrichová's unpublished wordless novel Malí ka Na Cestách [The Artist on Her Journey] recounts this period in her life. In Paris, she first encountered the wordless novels of Flemish artist Franz Masereel, the originator of the form, and was inspired to create her own. Over the course of her long career, Bocho áková-Dittrichová published several wordless novels, along with travelogues and historical works. She also worked as a printmaker and illustrator, and was highly regarded in her native land, though largely unknown elsewhere. This changed in 2014, when the National Museum of Women in the Arts held an exhibition of her work entitled "The First Woman Graphic Novelist: Helena Bocho áková-Dittrichová," and this important artist finally began to gain global recognition. Her work, however, is still not widely available. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        <em>Henry Brocken</em>. Original watercolour illustrating Henry Brocken by Walter De La Mare.

      1925. Watercolour painted on Fabriano art board with ruled borders in ink by the artist and titled, signed and dated by him in ink. Board size 32 x 24 cms, watercolour size 23 x 17 cms. Walter De La Mare's book <em>Henry Brocken, His Travels and Adventures in the Rich, Strange, Scarce-Imaginable Regions of Romance</em>was first published in 1904. It is an allegorical tale in which Henry Brocken goes on a magical journey through Literature. Hemeets characters from fiction including Gulliver, Sleeping Beauty, Jane Eyre, people from Bunyan's <em>Pilgrim's Progress</em>, Keats' "palely loitering knight" etc. This image shows Brocken heading off on his journey through Literature on his horse Rosinante. Henry Brocken was never published with Rex Whistler illustrations. Judging by these illustrations, it would have been spectacular. Provenance: Given by Rex Whistler to his great friend Stephen Tennant and thence to the latter's chauffeur. This is the first time this artwork has appeared on the market.

        Über quantentheoretische Umdeutung kinematischer und mechanischer Beziehungen.

      Berlin: Julius Springer, 1925. First Paper on Quantum Mechanics. A very fine copy (not ex-library) of his breakthrough paper, announcing his discovery of matrix mechanics. "A severe attack of hay fever in early June forced Heisenberg's retreat to the island of Helgoland. There he completed the calculation of the anharmonic oscillator, determined the constants of motion, and obtained from his multiplication rule the Thomas Kuhn summation rule for spectral lines. After nearly two weeks on Helgoland, Heisenberg returned to Göttingen, where he drafted his fundamental paper 'Über die quantentheoretische Umdeutung kinematischer und mechanischer Beziehungen', which he completed in July. In this paper Heisenberg proclaimed that the quantum mechanics of atoms should contain only relations between experimentally observable quantities. The resulting formalism served as the starting point for the new quantum mechanics, based, as Heisenberg's multiplication rule implied, on the manipulation of ordered sets of data forming a mathematical matrix." (DSB). In: Zeitschrift für Physik, Vol. 33, pp.879-893. The complete volume offered (VIII,950 pp.) in a nice contemporary half calf binding with gilt spine lettering. Completely clean throughout - a fine copy.

        Unique Archive of images, (Vladimir Nikolaevich, b. 1868, Russian General, Commandant, 1913-1917, of the Alexander Palace, Tsarskoe Selo, Nicholas II's favourite residence, and Head of Nicholas II's suite at the time of the abdication at Mogilev, 1st March 1917)

      1925 - (of which 73 have glass negatives, 1 a celluloid negative, and 38 the corresponding prints made c. 1936), relating to Nicholas II and his family, and to the Tsar at the war front, 1914-1917, together with the rare first edition in Russian of Voeikov's memoirs, 'With and Without the Tsars', important for many insights on court life and for the events surrounding the abdication, 8vo., pp. 434 and 8 plates, Oy. Littera, Helsinki, 1936, in all 77 images, c. 1890 - the negatives are generally in good condition, apart from a few ragged edges not affecting the image and, rarely, a small flaw. In Box 1, four, including that of the striking portrait bust of Tsesarevich Alexei, have cracks but are carefully joined with transparent tape, and the cracks are such that they could easily be edited out on a digital print The images were apparently photographed from items in Voeikov's personal album of photos of the Imperial family and military scenes in Galicia and the Caucasus, and of a few cuttings, with a view to publication in his memoirs. In fact of those present, only one was used in his book. Many negatives have captions or fragments of surrounding text in Russian. The prints are uniformly backed on to stout card, but without the captions, so that the negatives are valuable for identification. Several cards have the stamp of Daniel Nyblin, Helsingfors (Helsinki), who no doubt made all the prints. Voeikov has wrapped and numbered many of the negatives in brown paper, some from a shop in Brussels, on which he has written brief identifications in Russian. For Nicholas II he uses the initial 'G[osudar]', 'His Majesty'. These and any printed captions have contributed to the checklist below, along with identifications from a previous owner, all suitable as a permanent catalogue. The checklist shows the present numbering in four boxes; a second number means a number supplied by Voeikov. His numbers 1-100 are mostly at or round St Petersburg, higher numbers at the war front. For the plates in his book, Voeikov selected certain very special manuscript items, such as the signed note from Nicholas, (Box 1, No. 19), and a remarkable signed menu of 1889 which includes 'Alix de Hesse', five years before her wedding to Nicholas II. CHECKLIST Box 1 26 Glass Negatives and 1 Celluloid Negative, no prints: 1. Tsesarevich Alexei (1904-1918) surrounded by generals, one of whom is pointing to a tortoise on the ground. 3½" x 4¾". 2.

B 81 (Der Prozeß); Göbel: Der Kurt Wolff Verlag 1913-1930: 663 (Das Schloß); 673 (Amerika). "Es ist klar, daß der Roman mit dem "Prozeß" und "Schloß", deren Reihe er (chronologisch) eröffnete, innig zusammenhängt. Es ist eine TRILOGIE DER EINSAMKEIT, die Kafka hinterlassen hat. Fremdheit, Isoliertheit mitten unter den Menschen sind das Grundthema. Die Situation des Angeklagten im "Prozeß", - der Stand des Uneingeladenen und Landfremden im "Schloß", - die Hilfslosigkeit eines unerfahrenen Kindes mitten in dem von Leben tobenden "Amerika". - hier sind drei Grundtatsachen, deren geheimnisvoll Gemeinsames durch die Kunst Kafklas klar und symbolhaft, jedoch stets durchaus ohne die übliche Symbolsprache und im einfachsten Ausdruck der Wirklichkeit hervortritt. . In allen drei Romanen geht es um die Einordnung des Einzelnen in die menschliche Gemeinschaft ." (Max Brod, Nachwort zu "Amerika"). "Der Prozeß" erschien im Verlag Die Schmiede in der Reihe "Die Romane des XX. Jahrhunderts". Die Bände "Der Prozeß" und "Das Schloß" unbeschnitten und Rücken etwas ausgeblichen. Schöne Ausgabe der von Max Brod als "Trilogie der Einsamkeit" bezeichneten Reihe. [Attributes: First Edition]

        [WOOLF, Virginia] BELL, Vanessa. Original gouache painting for the dust jacket design for Virginia Woolf's Mrs Dalloway, 8 x 5 ¼ inches, unsigned and undated but 1925

      , 1925 A preliminary design for the dust jacket, with the basic design more or less determined, but appearing as a rectilinear silhouette of a crowned head. Before the final published version was printed, Bell rendered the design softer, more rounded and abstract, and brighter with the addition of the color yellow. The published version is also printed in black, rather than in black and brown, with yellow accents surrounding the central design, and with a bouquet of yellow flowers in the lower portion of the design where the artist eventually added her initials (not present here). Provenance: on the back of the frame is the label of Anthony d'Offay, 9 Dering Street, New Bond Street, London. The present design was included in d'Offay's exhibition entitled Vanessa Bell: Paintings and Drawings, 20 November to 12 December 1973, where it is listed as number 19. Framed and glazed.
