        Ulysses [Pirate Edition of Ulysses - bowdlerized and published in Two Worlds Monthly by its editor Samuel Roth] - Complete set of all 11 publsihed issues.

      New York: Two Worlds Publishing Company, . Very good + / Near Fine - condition with only minor signs of external wear. Two chips to spines only. Wonderful example of this unusual set.. New York, Two Worlds Publishing Company, 1926 - 1927. Octavo. Pagination: Issues I - IV: 498 pages, Issue V - VIII: 476 pages, Issue IX - XI: 210 pages. Original Softcover wrappers. Very good + / Near Fine - condition with only minor signs of external wear. Two chips to spines only. Wonderful example of this unusual set. Samuel Roth must be seen as one of the most persistant but highly interesting violator's of publishing rights and distributor of obscene materials during the 1920's to 1950's, a difficult time for these kind of endeavours. His most famous clash with the law happened in 1927, when Sylvia Beach was pressed by James Joyce to stop Roth printing excerpts from Ulysses. Famously Roth not only caved but also published "An Offer to James Joyce" in the last installment of his short-lived periodical, anticipating the injunction that was to end his enterprise in 1927. The injunction was a result of Sylvia Beach's success in mobilizing an international protest, signed by 167 international artists and writers, which was porinted in another famous periodical (Transition). In "An Offer to James Joyce" Samuel Roth wrote: "Whether it is really true, or whether is its merely a survival of his old Dublin habits (schnorrerei in both worlds being mostly the same), Mr.Joyce tells everyone who comes to see him in Paris that he is in need of money. If Mr.Joyce is really in need of money, it is here in New York waiting for him, provided he is willing to make one public appearance to answer my charges against him for his conduct in the matter of my publication of his Ulysses in 'Two worlds Monthly'. Two thousand five hundred dollars has been posted with my attorney, Mr.Nathan M. Padgug, of Padgug, Tarlowe & Flatow, 17 John Street, to pay for Mr. Joyce's way to and from New York, to accommodate him in a first-class New York Hotel and to provide him with a thousand dollars in cash after his public appearance. If Mr.Joyce was not really responsible, as has been suggested possible, for the actions of Sylvia Beach and his other friends, particularly in the publication of the spurious much-signed protest, he owes me and the world this explanation. And if after he has heard what i have to say he still believes that the attitude of his friends did justice to him and to me, it is important that he should make public confession of it, too. Here is an opportunity for Mr.Joyce to get a trip to New York, dine with the Van Dorens, see the Woolworth Building, and get a thousand dollars in cash besides. I have cabled this offer to him, giving him all summer, if he wants it, to consider the matter. Meanwhile, I would like to point out that Mr. Joyce is a celebrated example of what an indiscriminate contemporary adulation can do to even a writer of such promise as Mr. Joyce. I submit to the sober judgment of mankind that, since the writing of Ulysses, Mr.Joyce has ceased functioning as an artist. To the best evidence possible, his most recent writings, he has succumbed into a state of semi-conscious demoniacism in which he is both conscious of his own mental waywardness and of the ludicrous gullibility of his friends who pretend to discern in the gibberish I reproduce in 'Two Worlds Quarterly'[sic] the birth of a new art. Frankly, I have even given up readning proof of the matter. But one of his crony-critics, writing in the current number of 'Transition', suggests that Mr.Joyce has demonstrated conclusivelyin this new unnamed work, in which thirteen modern and ancient languages are made use of, the inadequacy of one language for the expression of modern thought. If we should ever be crazy enough to follow this line of thinking, we will soon see sculptors mixing brass with theirmarble, painters pasting wooden bridges on their reproductions of the Thames, and novelists returning to the eighteenth century habit of illustrating their bedroom scenes with wall paper [all of these happened since, the Editor]. There is a man writing fearfully after eating. One would say that he has einter eaten very bad food of that his stomach is out of order. The writer in 'Transition' would say that it has become necessary for man to digest food by writhing with his whole body. Mr.Joyce's defection as an artist is merely his own personal illness, whatever be the interpretations his friends may wish to put on it. He began with only a few genuine sensations which he rendered exquisitely once and for all time. Like many another gladiator, after having seen stout service, he has passed into the side-show. But it would be a pity if his managers let him go hungry. Samuel Roth.

        Dialogi maritimi di M. Gioan Iacopo Bottazzo. Et alcune rime maritime di M. Nicolo Franco, et d'altri diversi spiriti, dell'Accademia de gli Argonauti.

      - In 8vo (cm 15,5); pergamena coeva con titolo manoscritto lungo il taglio inferiore (mancano i legacci); cc. 168. Marca tipografica al titolo. Carattere corsivo. Ottima copia.EDIZIONE ORIGINALE dedicata a Massimiano Stampa, marchese di Soncino. La prima parte dell'opera contiene i tre dialoghi del Bottazzo, che trattano rispettivamente di geografia generale, dei venti e di astronomia (elaquo;sfera e cose celestieraquo;). Essi contengono in forma concisa tutto il sapere pratico dell'epoca in materia di navigazione e furono pensati per essere letti da marinai e navigatori.La seconda parte del volume (cc. 128-167) contiene invece vari componimenti di Nicolò Franco, Giovan Francesco Arrivabene ed altri ''argonauti'' sullo stesso argomento (cfr. M. Maylender, Storia delle Accademie d'Italia, Bologna, 1926-'30, I, p. 333).Un ulteriore dialogo su Alessandro Magno, la bussola, la calamita e gli inventori degli strumenti navali, annunciato in un secondo libro di imminente pubblicazione, non vide invece mai la luce. Il Bottazzo, letterato nato a Montecastello (AL), nel terzo dialogo narra alcune sue vicende giovanili, in particolare di un amore infelice che lo avrebbe allontanto elaquo;dal patrio nidoeraquo; e portato a viaggiare a lungo in compagnia di un maestro siciliano, acquistando grande esperienza di uomini e cose. Rientrato in Piemonte, nel 1540 a Casale fu insieme a N. Franco tra i fondatori dell'Accademia degli Argonauti. Successivamente venne incaricato dell'educazione di Isabella Gonzaga, futura sposa di Francesco Ferdinando d'Avalos, marchese di Pescara. In occasione del loro matrimonio, nel 1554, egli pubblicò un Epithalamium e dedicò un altro scritto alla sua pupilla. Nominato Cavaliere dello Speron d'oro, nel 1562 entrò a far parte con il nome di ''Pensoso'' dell'Accademia degli Illustrati, fondata quello stesso anno a Casale da Stefano Guazzo. L'amicizia tra quest'ultimo e il Bottazzo emerge anche dal quarto libro della Civil Conversazione (1574), dove tra i convitati vi è un personaggio bonario ed ironico chiamato ''Cavalier Bottazzo'' (cfr. D.B.I., XIII, pp. 422-423).N. Franco, nato a Benevento da famiglia povera, dopo essere entrato negli ambienti letterari napoletani prima, veneziani poi, fu presentato a Pietro Aretino, di cui divenne segretario. La loro amicizia tuttavia non durò a lungo e divennero presto acerrimi nemici, tanto che il Franco decise di lasciare Venezia dopo essere stato ferito in volto da uno dell'entourage dell'Aretino. Visse a Casale Monferrato, Mantova, Cosenza e Roma, sempre dedicandosi all'attività letteraria. Portato davanti all'inquisizione per le sue satire contro Paolo IV, fu impiccato dal ponte Sant'Angelo il 10 marzo del 1570. Edit16, CNCE7315. Index Aureliensis, 122.776. D.E. Rhodes, A Bibliography of Mantua, in: ''La Bibliofilia'', LVIII, 1956, pp. 173-174. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Frontispiece portrait with printer's blindstamp on lower edge: Paris : Imprimé par Belfond, Paris. The well-known first printing with the Whistler portrait and blindstamp. Whistler (1834-1903) was introduced to Mallarmé by Claude Monet in 1888 and they corresponded and worked together on several projects up to the poet's death in 1898. "Henri Belfond was a lithographic printer in the rue Gaillon, Paris. He printed several of JW's lithographs between October 1891 and the summer of 1893" (arts gla ac uk). The Hunterian Museum, Glasgow, reprints the portrait at their site, with the following commentary: Both Whistler and Mallarmé considered the image extremely successful. When Mallarmé first saw an impression of the small portrait he immediately sent off a letter to the artist with the comment: " This portrait is a marvel, the best thing that has ever been done of me, and I am delighted with it.".

        The Original Charleston. Musique de Cecil Mack et Jimmy Johnson dansé par Joséphine Baker dans l'Hyper-Revue des Folies Bergère "La Folie du Jour" ...

      Paris: Editions Francis Salabert, [1926]. First Edition thus. Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Quarto Original bifolium sheet music with pictorial covers, loosely inserted singlesheet, letterpress recto only. A little rubbed externally, with a soft diagonal crease through the front cover, but overall a very good example. Uncommon, just 3 copies listed by Worldcat (Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin, Biblioteca Comunale di Trento, Zentralbibliothek Zurich). In 1926 Baker left the Revue Negre to join the Folies Bergère and her success became a sensation. The Charleston formed the finale of a frenetic show, the critic André Rouverge writing in the Mercure de France that "the Charleston, as danced à la Baker, fairly boils over with diabolic intensity". This score features a blissful dancing La Baker by R. de Valerio on the cover, and loosely inserted is a singlesheet "Théorie du Charleston" by Pradère-Niquet, Professeur de l'Académie Baraduc, giving detailed instructions for the dance.

        Bludenz und das Brandnertal". Aquarelliertes Vogelschaupanorama von Eugen Felle.

      (Isny, Eugen Felle, 1926). - 205 x 380 mm. Prachtvolles, aquarelliertes und mit devkweiß gehöhtes Vogelschaupanorama von Eugen Felle, wohl die Vorlage für einen Werbeprospekt (Kartenbrief), da rückseitig bezeichnet mit "1000. Photobraun. Dreiteilig". Stempel des Vorarlberger Heimatbilderverlags von G. Heinzle's Erben in Bludenz, bei dem die Auflage dann wohl auch gedruckt wurde. Das schöne Panorama zeigt außerordentlich genau Bludenz, Bürs, Nüziders und Nenzing, klar erkennbar sind auch die Eingänge ins Camperdona-Tal, Brandnertal und ins Montafon. Aufgenommen wurde das Panorama wohl von einer Anhöhe über Ludesch/Thüringen. Eugen Felle fertigte seine Vorzeichnungen immer vor Ort an und das erklärt die große Detailgenauigkeit dieser Blätter. Gegenüber den auf dieser Grundlage gedruckten Post- und Ansichtskarten, oder auch Prospekten, waren diese Vorzeichnungen etwa fünfmal größer, was das Hervorheben so vieler Details auch erklärt. Vorzeichnungen von Eugen Felle sind heute sehr selten und kaum mehr auffindbar. Unter Passepartout und exzellent erhalten.

        A.A. Milne references the bible, comparing bankers to Jacob's story

      Chelsea, UK: , c. 1926. Chelsea, UK, c. 1926. 5.5" x 7.5". "Single page ALS, signed in full signature ""A.A. Milne,"" undated, but c. 1926, 5.5""x 7.5"" on stationary with letterhead of 13, Mallord Street, Chelsea, S.W.3. Tel Kensington 2074. Expected center fold. Scattered very soft handling marks to outer edges. Near fine condition.A warm humorous letter written to Vincent Seligman, a close family friend, and one of whom Milne would maintain close connections to for his entire life. The letter pokes fun at his fancy gift, but also references the bible and makes a comparison to Jacob's story. The letter is undated, however based on the stationary Milne used at the time it can determined to be circa 1926 - 1930. The letter in full:""Dear VincentHaving just lit my pipe with my watch, I take my pen in hand, and realize how much I owe to you (Annoying that my pen doesn't do any thing else. It might whistle or tell the north, you seem to have been rather careless about this)Really I'm terribly thrilled with my watch lighter ""('Yes', said the watch lighterman spitting thoughtfully -"" Jacobs story). Thank you so much. I'll never say anything against bankers again. They are the backbone of the country, the bulwark of the constitution. Having looked at my watch, I find that it is time to light my pipe again and return pen to gold sheath. Good-bye. God be with you (and bankers generally, but less emphatically). Again I thank you. You are too kind. Yours ever A.A. Milne""The letter was written to Vincent Seligman, who was a German Jew whose family emigrated to London and the United States in the 19th century."
