Woolf writes to a French acquaintance in regards to a French translation of a portion of To the Lighthouse. In full:"It was my doing I admit that they sent you a circular.

        Winnie the Pooh

      An excellent First edition copy of the beloved children's classic by A. A. Milne, still in lovely condition and beautifully illustrated by E. H. Shepard. Published by Methuen, London; 1926. This is an excellent copy of this rare first edition. It is in Fine condition, tightly bound in original green boards, with gold gilt detailing to the front and lettering to the spine. There is just the smallest degree of bumping to the spine ends and corners, but apart from this the boards are exceptionally clean and free from damage. Inside, there is a small tear to the middle of the bottom edge of the front free endpaper, about 1.5 centimetres in length. There is just the slightest degree of toning and age spotting to the extreme edges of the pages, but otherwise they are clean and bright with no blemishes or marks to speak of. In all this is a rare Fine copy of this book! The dust jacket is in Near Fine condition, it is the rare first issue with 117th thousand to top of rear flap. There is some chipping to the spine ends and corners, and a closed tear to the top corner of the rear panel. But there is hardly any darkening to the spine, and barely any marking to the jacket and, in all, this is a very nice example of this first edition and jacket indeed.

        Winnie-the-Pooh

      London: Methuen & Co. Ltd,, 1926. With Decorations by Ernest H. Shepard. Octavo. Original green cloth, spine lettered in gilt, gilt vignette to front cover, top edge gilt, yellow map endpapers. With the dust jacket. Illustrated throughout by Ernest H. Shepard. Gift inscription to title page. Spine lightly rolled. An excellent copy in the dust jacket, spine panel lightly faded and slightly chipped at head, panels very slightly soiled, front flap fold slightly split at head and foot, tips worn. First edition, first impression. After the huge success of When We Were Very Young, first published on 6 November 1924, Milne was asked to contribute a story to the London Evening News. "The Wrong Sort of Bees", published on Christmas Eve 1925, was based on a bedtime story that Milne had told his son Christopher. It starred Christopher's stuffed bear, who had made his first public appearance in the poem "Teddy Bear", published in Punch in 1924 and later in When We Were Very Young. The original toy was a top-of-the-range Alpha Farnell bought at Harrods for Christopher Milne's first birthday, known initially as Edward or Edward Bear, then later rechristened Winnie-the-Pooh (after a favourite bear cub at London zoo). Winnie-the-Pooh was an immediate success and garnered even more enthusiastic reviews than its predecessor, with one critic writing that "When the real Christopher Robin is a little old man, children will find him waiting for them. It is the child's book of the season that seems certain to stay" (Thwaite p. 317). The book was first published in London on 14 October 1926 in an edition of 30,000 regular trade copies.

Assembled are 224 sepia toned and black and white photographs affixed to stiff black paper in various sizes ranging from 1.5" x 3" to 7" x 9". A few pages detached but present, rubbing, and short tears else very good. A photo album compiled by Milton S. Mulloy which begins in 1923 with pictures from his college days at Stonyhurst College in Waterbury, Connecticut and continuing through his travels over the next few years. Many of the excursions are in the New England area including, swimming in a river in Salisbury, New York, a visit to Amherst, Smuggler's Notch, Vermont. The mountains, waterfalls, and trees of the region are documented in the photos as well as group photos and one of a friend captioned "Dapper Dan" posing on top of "Chapel Tower." Mulloy's expeditions also took him to the midwest including a short stay in Montana en route to Yellowstone National Park. In over 100 photographs Yellowstone is depicted in all it's glory from the "Paint Pots" to Old Faithful "in action." There are images of Artist's Point, the Great Falls, and various wildlife including a buffalo and a bear captioned, "the holdup near." Within the album are two panoramas from the geyser basin of West Thumb and of the wharf, as well as a photograph of a Native American in full regalia captioned "one of the originals." A wonderful collection of photographs with an emphasis on Yellowstone.

        Elmer Gantry

      New York 1926 - Long galley proofs of the 1st edition (6 1/2" X 24"), printed on thin proofing paper (rectos only) dated "Dec. 27" [1926]. The first setting in type (book was 1927) of an immortal scrap of Western literature, the transit stage linking manuscript to 1st edition. Manufactured in a handful of copies to correct misprints and mis-settings before page proofs. Split across leaves 1 (see photo) and 123 rejoined with tape, some edge tears taped, last 3 leaves missing, but the missing text is supplied with 1st edition pages, connected to vaguely correspond, else good condition. Spartan cloth case. Despite being worn and imperfect, it's such a rarity that there is some chance it will turn out to be the finest (only?) known set, and with more than 100,000 1st editions printed (20,000 in the 1st binding), it's the only form of Elmer Gantry that will ever be rare. Upon publication the book was greeted with outrage by the exposed peddlers of empty promises, who called Lewis, an instrument of the Devil. But those who joined the whining failed to notice that Elmer Gantry rightly captured the temperament and distillate of a specific type of Midwestern revivalism callously engaged in bleeding those who didn't know the difference between being born again, and being born yesterday. It remains a tartly satiric, and dependence jangling, reminder that the cardinal doctrine of a fanatic's creed is that his enemies are the enemies of God. But God, by all testimonies, is not in danger (has no viable enemies) and, at worst, is only disappointed in those who wimp out and refuse to meet their human responsibility, that is, to live their lives testing the limits of their highest possibilities, and then to die with composure, like a hero going home. Lewis declined a 1926 Pulitzer Prize for Arrowsmith, 1925, because the prize was not awarded for literary merit but, "for the American novel published during the year which shall best present the wholesome atmosphere of American life, and the highest standard of American manners and manhood," both major targets of Lewis' satire (the romantic equivalent of sex in a Waffle House parking lot) and the reason why so many sleepy books have won it. In 1930 he became the first American to win the Nobel Prize for Literature, calming a national impatience that had become like an ingrown toenail. He accepted it, and the fat check that came with it, breaching the Swedish citadel for his fellow Americans, Eugene O'Neill, Pearl Buck, T. S. Eliot, William Faulkner, Ernest Hemingway, John Steinbeck, Saul Bellow (an American born in Canada), and a handful of more recent honorees, whose lasting worthiness will ultimately be decided in the reflections of history.

        Noa Noa. Voyage de Tahiti

      [Munich]: [R. Piper & Co], [1926]. First Edition. Hardcover Hardcover. Near Fine/Fine. 12.5 x 9.5 in. 204 pages. With collotypye reproductions of Gauguin's watercolors, drawings, photographs, and woodcuts. In 1895, on his second trip to Tahiti, Gauguin took the manuscript for Noa Noa, written following his first trip, two years before. While on the island, he made woodblock prints, sketches, drawings, and small paintings, and pasted them into the text. This is a facsimile of that journal, carefully reproducing the Noa Noa manuscript, now in the Louvre, to match Gauguin's original. Widely considered a landmark artist's book, it was included in the Artist and the Book, 1860-1960 exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and the Victoria and Albert show, From Manet to Hockney: Modern Artists' Illustrated Books, and in Jaroslav Andel's The Avant-Garde Book, 1900-1945. Riva Castleman, in A Century of Artists Books, called this 'a remarkable event in book publishing.' Limited to 400 copies, this is one of 320 bound in raffia, a coarse material made from palm trees. First edition. A near fine copy, with some cracking to the fragile binding at the spine, in a fine dust jacket that has been professionally lined with Japanese paper. The limitation bookplate (located on the inside front cover) has been covered by a previous owner's bookplate. In a very good example of the original slipcase, and rare thus. A spectacular looking copy of a great book.

        Photograph Album - 1920s China with images of Hong Kong and Yokohama

      [1926].. A very interesting album with 63 snapshots measuring 8 x 10cm carefully arranged 4 to a page, 17 unused pages at the rear. Most photographs have been captioned in ink. Three snapshots have been removed. It appears the first leaf or leaves of the album has been removed as the first photograph in the album is numbered 5. Some photographs are quite faded, on others some silvering is showing but in most cases the images are still quite dark and strong. Album measures 25 x 30cm. Upper card cover of album missing. This interesting mostly showing images of mainland China album offers a great deal of human and political interest. It appears that the photographs were taken by an engaged visitor concerned about workers conditions and the political situation in the country at the time. The album begins with five photographs relating to the KMT including one taken at their Military School for Non-Commissioned Officers captioned: "The soldiers carry on their arms a band inscribed - We do not rob or loot the people"". Other photographs include images of Peking, Hankow, Yangtze river, two photos of the infamous "No Dogs or Chinese" notice in Shanghai, Canton images include two taken at the Whampoa Military Academy showing a parade for Colonel Malone one of which is captioned "Chiang Kai Shek on the platform" and 10 photos taken at Hong Kong. The final three photographs the view from a ship in Yokohama as she leaves the wharf and the streamers break. The particular attraction of this album is that unlike most albums compiled by Western visitors of the day this shows the situation in China at the time rather than sites of interest to the visitor. The many interesting captions add a great deal to the interest of the album. The album starts with an image of a KMT military school based in Kalgan 张家口 [Zhangjiakou], a prefecture-level city in northwestern Hebei province. The images include the living conditions of workers for example the photograph of an engine driver on the Hu-Ning (Shanghai-Nanking) railway captioned with comments about his wages ($2.50) and comparing them to that of a fireman ($1) and a cleaner (30 cents). Another important image is the photograph that provided the date for the album. It shows a Peking street scene captioned "Chang Tso-lins broken words. Chang promised his troops would not enter Peking - within 24 hours they were streaming in - here is the transport. All shops are shut for fear of looting". The powerful Manchurian warlord Chang Tso-lin (Wade Giles), Zhang Zuolin (Pinyin), 张作霖, took control of Peking in April 1926. From the collection of Arthur Hacker, Hong Kong artist, historian and collector. .

        Der Morbus Gaucher und die ihm ählichen Erkrankungen. Offprint. Pres. copy

      Berlin: Springer, 1926. Pick, Ludwig (1868-1935). Der Morbus Gaucher und die ihm ähnlichen Erkrankungen.

"Niemann-Pick disease," a group of inherited, severe metabolic disorders, was first noted by Albert Niemann in 1914, but Pick's 1926 account is fuller and of greater importance. The disease, which primarily affects Jewish infants, has some similarities to Tay-Sachs disease; the provenance of this copy is therefore of some interest. Garrison-Morton.com 3785.

        Ulysses

      Paris, France: Shakespeare and Company, 1926. Hardcover. Very Good. Eighth printing; hardcover, 8 1/4 x 6 1/2 inches, 735 pages, small printed map of James Joyce's grave location laid in; three-quarter bound in blue marbled paper boards backed and tipped in brown Morocco, banded spine with title blocked in gilt, boards rubbed and scuffed at extremities, bits of leather scuffed away at corners, spine sun faded, decorative end papers, pages toned with age, binding sound. Small, folded mimeographed flyer laid in with the title: Wegweiser zum Grab des Schriftstellers James Joyce im Friedhof Zurich-Fluntern (Signpost to the tomb of the writer James Joyce in the cemetery Zurich-Fluntern). Inside is a brief biography of Joyce, and his wife, Nora-Joyce Barnacle, along with a map showing directions to their graves. The flyer is dated 21.12.62. The paper is toned and creased with some brown spots. Capturing a single day in the life of Dubliner Leopold Bloom, his friends Buck Mulligan and Stephen Dedalus, his wife Molly, and a cast of supporting characters, the author pushes Celtic lyricism and vulgarity to splendid extremes. A modernist novel of supreme stylistic innovation, James Joyce's Ulysses is the towering achievement of twentieth century literature. For Joyce, literature 'is the eternal affirmation of the spirit of man'. Written between 1914 and 1921, Ulysses has survived bowdlerization, legal action and bitter controversy. -- Shakespeare and Company
