        TWO WORLDS MONTHLY

      New York: Two Worlds Publishing, 1926. n. Softcover. 238 x 168 mm (9 3/8 x 6 5/8"). The journal's first 11 issues. Edited by Samuel Roth. Original printed paper wrappers. Isolated pencilled marginalia. Slocum & Cahoon C-68. Five spines with minor chip at tail, short splits to head of six joints, covers of last issue detached and chipped around the edges, covers a little soiled, with a couple of short fore-edge tears, occasional corner creases or short marginal tears, but the leaves clean and fresh, and the fragile volumes otherwise well preserved. These 11 issues contain bowdlerized (and unauthorized) reprints of 13 episodes of Joyce's "Ulysses," which had been banned in the United States on grounds of obscenity. This bold piracy certainly brought Roth to the attention of the literary world: according to Slocum & Cahoon, "This unauthorized serialization of Ulysses resulted in considerable public indignation and provoked the 'International Protest' signed by 167 artists and writers and printed in transition I (April 1927)." Roth had planned to publish 14 installments in 12 issues; however, the 12th issue never appeared individually, though that section did appear in a later two-volume bound edition. Joyce sought and obtained an injunction against Roth, but by that time "Two Worlds" had ceased publication. The author sued for damages, claiming that an American edition of "Ulysses" could make $500,000. The New York Times reported that Roth countered, "The circulation of The Two Worlds Magazine has decreased very appreciably since the announcement of the articles by Mr. Joyce." In addition to "Ulysses," the magazine contains writings by T. S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, Djuna Barnes, Anatole France, D. H. Lawrence, and Octave Mirbeau's scandalous novel, "Diary of a Chambermaid." Complete sets of the individual issues are very hard to find, especially in good condition.

        [Manuscrit autographe inédit et tapuscrit] "Les éléments non rationnels du langage", conférence à la Sorbonne (amphithéâtre Michelet) le 2 juin 1927

      1926. Manuscrit. Bon. En Feuilles. In-4. Manuscrit autographe (parafé deux fois en tête) de 40 pp. in-4 (nombreuses ratures et corrections) et tapuscrit avec corrections autographes de 20 pp. in-4. Le tapuscrit est la mise au propre du manuscrit. L'ensemble est à notre connaissance inédit. Dans son "Histoire de la psychanalyse en France" (t. 1, p. 313 sq.) Elisabeth Roudinesco cite, parmi les trois articles capitaux de Pichon, un article de 1928 publié dans la revue de Janet ("Le Journal de Psychologie"), "Sur la signification psychologique de la négation en français" où il présente le concept de "forclusion", devenant ainsi "l'initiateur d'un moment théorique essentiel de l'histoire du mouvement psychanalytique français". Or cette conférence de 1927 prépare l'article de 1928 (auquel Jacques Lacan fera souvent référence) et les pages 31 à 40 du manuscrit (et 16 à 20 du tapuscrit) sont consacrées au concept de forclusion, qui s'invente donc publiquement ce 2 juin 1927. Tout est déjà dans le texte de cette conférence, jusqu'à la phrase de Marsillac à propos de l'affaire Dreyfus sur laquelle E. Roudinesco fait de longs développements. Notons que le tome 1 de l'Essai de Grammaire française, où Pichon et Damourette traitent plus longuement de la négation en français, quoique sous-titré "1911-1927", ne paraîtra qu'en 1930. Et nous verrons ailleurs (cf. réf. XXXX), non sans une certaine ironie, que si la réflexion sur le langage conduite par Pichon est une source d'inspiration importante pour Lacan, la langue de ce dernier est une source primaire cryptée de l'Essai de Grammaire. Personnage d'une grande richesse, d'une infinie curiosité et très complexe, Edouard Pichon est un contemporain et - par son intérêt pour le langage - un précurseur de Lacan, qui lui reprendra - entre autres - le concept de forclusion. Il est l'un des membres fondateurs du groupe de L'Evolution psychiatrique et de la Société Psychanalytique de Paris (dont il fut président de 1935 à 1937). Avec son oncle Jacques Damourette, il est l'auteur d'un monumental Essai de Grammaire française dont la publication s'étala sur près de 30 ans. Il fut également fervent maurrassien tout en étant dreyfusard, et le gendre de Pierre Janet sans être janetien. (Voir à son sujet, E. Roudinesco, Histoire de la psychanalyse en France, t. 1, pp. 297-320). Nota : ce document ne pourra être exporté en dehors de l'Union Européenne sans autorisation préalable du ministère de la Culture, formalité pouvant prendre plusieurs jours..

        The Daisy: Senior Issue. June 1926

      Brooklyn, New York: East District High School. 1926. First. Edited by Daniel Fuchs. Large octavo. 39, [9] ads pp. Stapled and illustrated orange wrappers. Owner's name on front cover, vertical crease, small chip and modest wear on the wrappers, very good. Also includes a page signed by many classmates (but not, it appears, by Fuchs). Fuchs was the author of the classic Jewish-American novel A Summer in Williamsburg set in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Not only did Fuchs edit this high school literary magazine, he is pictured with a brief biography (as well as pictured in the class picture), and here publishes the Second Prize story in the school's Short Story Contest, "Isidore Goldfarb Reflects...", which is very reminiscent of his later fiction. The biography reveals that Fuchs edited and contributed to the magazine for most of his high school tenure, so presumably this is not his first published work. However, we've seen no other copy of the magazine. His first novel, A Summer in Williamsburg, was published in 1934, the same year as the other great Jewish-American Depression classic Call It Sleep by Henry Roth. Fuchs later devoted himself to writing film scripts, one of which, Love Me Or Leave Me, won him an Academy Award. .

        El Habitante Y Su Esperanza [Association Copy: Signed, Placed, and Dated]

      Editorial Nascimento, Buenos Aires 1926 - A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original cream-colored wrappers (some handling soil, small stain to the spine head and adjoining portion of each wrapper, title to the front wrapper underlined in blue, evidence of neat early repairs to the spine ends and edges and to the hinges -- in better condition than we are used to seeing), SIGNED BY PABLO NERUDA on the front free endpaper and there inscribed by him as follows: para / Maury / Austin / Bromsen / [illegible] / Neruda / 1947". Neruda also has placed his inscription and signature in "Santiago / de Chile". Pablo Neruda won the 1971 Nobel Prize in Literature for "a poetry that with the action of an elemental force brings alive a continent's destiny and dreams". [Bromsen, the inscribee, was a noted American bibliophile and book dealer who spent 1941 and 1947 (the year Neruda inscribed this book) at the University of Chile as both student and teacher. An expert in Latin America, Bromsen was a member of the Department of Cultural Affairs for the Pan American Union and built the finest collection of manuscript and iconographic items in the United States related to his hero Simon Bolivar, a leader in the struggle for South American independence, as well as other materials relating to colonial Spanish America spanning the period from Columbus' arrival to Bolivar's death.] Neruda's only novel, El Habitante Y Su Esperanza [The Inhabitant and His Hope], evokes a brooding atmosphere while telling its tale of a jailed horse thief in love with the wife of a fellow felon. A dark work, the novel explores the baser human instincts with its tales of adultery and violent revenge, often speaking to the reader through surreal dreams and lyrical descriptions. While Neruda's habit was to sign his works in green ink -- with green symbolizing hope, IT IS QUITE NOTABLE THAT HE HAS SIGNED THIS BLEAK NOVEL IN BLUE RATHER THAN IN HIS COLOR OF HOPE. [Every other book signed by Neruda that we have handled or otherwise seen has been signed in green ink.] The book itself is not common in the first edition and signed copies of it are as scarce as hen's teeth -- with the auction records showing no signed copy ever having come to auction as of the creation of this listing. A Very Good ASSOCIATION COPY OF PABLO NERUDA'S ONLY NOVEL, SIGNED BY PABLO NERUDA AND QUITE SIGNIFICANTLY SIGNED IN BLUE RATHER THAN IN GREEN. Housed in a custom chemise and slipcase. EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE AND QUITE POSSIBLY RARE. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        'Windstilte'.

      Origineel handschrift. 27,5 x 21,1 cm. Drie bladen. Recto (eenmaal) en verso (tweemaal). Met enkele doorhalingen en correcties. Perforatiegaatjes.* Melancholisch vers van zestien strofen, voorafgegaan door een Frans citaat van Henry J.-M. Levet en aan het slot gedateerd 'Cap. Martin, Dec. '25'. Het is een belangrijk gedicht volgens Du Perrons biograaf, 'als het ware één lange mijmering waarin Perkens de balans opmaakt van zijn ervaringen'.Dit handschrift is een vroege versie van het gedicht dat voor het eerst gepubliceerd werd in Bij gebrek aan ernst (1926): de vijftiende strofe ('Ik draag mij op vandaag te kopen'...) ontbreekt hier nog. Voorts zijn er minimale afwijkingen in de interpunctie en is er in de tweede regel van de eennalaatste strofe sprake van 'binnenhuis-filosofie', in plaats van het krachtiger 'luierstoel-filosofie'. De zevende strofe heeft hier ook nog de leuke, bij publicatie in Mikrochaos (1932) gewijzigde regels: 'eens komt Ostaijen dit te weten,/ mijn verzenmaken maakt hem ziek,/ zend mij lankmoedig een komplete/ gebruiksaanwijzing der lyriek'.In de linkermarge van het eerste blad schreef Du Perron een begeleidend schrijven: 'B[este] W[illink]/ Hierbij Windstilte./ In alle haast je D.P.' Enkel dit drieregelige briefje gepubliceerd in Brieven, deel 1, p. 76.

        Sammlung von 11 eigenh. Briefen m. U.

      Berlin (8), Rowe (2) und Hendaye (1), 1926-40 - 4to. 25 SS. An Walter Minnich. Inhaltsreiche und persönliche Briefe, die anschaulich die Abwärtspirale von Pechsteins Lebensumständen in den dreißiger Jahren wiedergeben. Zur Sprache kommen Krankheiten in der Familie und bei ihm selbst (schwere Lungenentzündung 1936), die wenigen Ausstellungen in jener Zeit, Ausstellungsverbot, der Ausschluß aus der Akademie, die Sorge um den Lebensunterhalt, das Angebot einer Lehrstelle in Istanbul, der finanziell schmerzliche Betrug durch einen Kunsthändler, der drohende Krieg u. a. Zugleich berichtet Pechstein immer wieder von seinen Aufenthalten in Rowe, dem frugalen Leben in seiner Hütte am Koser See, dem „schützenden Asyl", das ihn „vor dem Zerbrechen bewahrt", auch im ganz physischen Sinne, wenn er durch Fischen und Holzhacken sein täglich Brot bestreitet. „. Sie wissen, daß mir Ihr Urteil sehr wertvoll ist, und daß ich auch eine stramme Kritik von Ihnen vertrage, und sogar gern habe, während mir die Zeitungen gestohlen werden können, denn diese Herren erledigen in 5 Minuten die Jahresarbeit eines Menschen mit ihrem totsicheren Urteil, welches durch keine eingehende Kenntnis getrübt ist. Im Frühjahr hoff ich, so Alles gut geht, also, Ihrem Rate zu folgen, und will nach Südfrankfreich fahren, jetzt kann ich ich leider nicht fort, denn ich hoffe immer noch etwas zu verkaufen, wenigstens mehr, als das Teure Leben verschlingt ." (Berlin, 2. Dez. 1926)„. hier in Berlin habe ich erst Kenntniss bekommen von allen Geschehnissen diesen Sommers, welche auch meine Person stark in Mitleidenschaft gezogen haben, zuletzt habe ich auch den Bescheid erhalten, dass ich auf Anordnung des Kulturministers aus der Akademie ausgeschlossen bin. Jetzt drängen sich nun notgedrungen Erwägungen auf, wie ich mein ferneres Leben gestalten könnte, um weiter für meine, und die Existenz meiner Familie sorgen zu können. Von meiner Hände Arbeit als Maler ist dies nicht mehr möglich. Was ich ausserdem noch kann ist Fischen, aber werde ich dies dürfen, denn die Berufsfischer sind schon wie der Teufel hinter jedes nutzbare Fischwasser her, und dann, was mach ich mit dem Jungen? Derselbe macht mir viel Freude, er ist jetzt mit seinen elf Jahren bereits so gross wie ich, und ist ein lebendiger, temperamentvoller Bengel . Marta sagt: nach Italien! Ja, ein grosses Fragezeichen, werde ich da eine Möglichkeit haben, wenigstens für die Dreie das Leben zu schaffen? ." (Berlin, 5. Nov. 1937)„. So entging ich all dem schrecklichen Aufregungen, und konnte mich, zurückgezogen auf mich selbst, ganz meiner Arbeit widmen. Jetzt, wenn ich mir dieselben im Atelier ansehe, freue ich mich derselben, denn ich hatte mir endlich den Wald in grösserem Format vorgenommen, nachdem ich dies Problem, die Jahre vorher, bereits in grossen und kleineren Zeichnungen, Farbskizzen, Aquarellen, bearbeitet hatte. Dergestalt habe ich auch hier in dieser Steinwüste, ein schützendes Asyl, welches mich vor dem Zerbrechen bewahrt, denn die Geschehnisse der letzten Zeit haben mich sehr durchgeschüttelt, und erneut die Sehnsucht nach den seligen Gefilden der Südsee geweckt, in welchem kein Machthunger die Menschen vergewaltigt ." (Berlin, 2. Jan. 1939)„. So wenig, wie ich anfangs an einen Krieg glauben wollte, so musste ich mich doch daran gewöhnen, ich glaube nicht, dass ich noch persönlich in Frage komme, denn erstens bin ich nun 58 Jahre alt, und dann bin ich auch nicht mehr der Kerl, wie im Weltkrieg, die schwere Krankheit 1936 hat doch am Herz etwas zurückgelassen. Nun wünsche ich bloss noch recht sehr, dass die Nerven durchhalten, und hoffe, dass ich dann im kommenden Frühjahr und Sommer erneut nach Pommern fahren kann. Dort in der Einsamkeit, finde ich auch meine alte Arbeitsfreude wieder. Gegenwärtig mache ich in den langen Arbeitsstunden Abends bei Licht Schmuck, ja! ich arbeite wie ein Goldschmied, in Nidden fand ich wunderhübsche Steine, welche ich schleifen und polieren liess, und verarbeite dieselben nun selbst in Silber zu Ringen, Armbändern, Mansche

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. und 5 eh. Postkarten mit U.

      Zürich, 1925 und 1926. - Zusammen 11 SS. auf 6 Bll. Gr.-4to und qu.-8vo. Die Karten jeweils mit eh. Adresse. Korrespondenz mit Otto Wernthal vom gleichnamigen Musikverlag über eine geplante Veröffentlichung von Kinderliedern, deren er achtzehn mit gleicher Post übersendet: „[.] Es sind alles Originaltexte von mir. Wenn Sie diese mit den Liedchen im Buch mischen würden, hätte man die stattliche Zahl von 30 Kinderliedern. Käme das Buch nur broschiert heraus, wie viele andere Sammlungen, mit einigen der besten Bilder, und würde eine große Auflage gedruckt, dann wäre sicher ein Geschäft zu machen. Ich werde von mir aus eine Kollektivreklame in Tageszeitungen machen [.]" (a. d. Br. v. 1. Dezember 1925). – Die Karten mit Detailfragen zu dem Verlagswerk, das im Jahr darauf unter dem Titel „25 Kinderlieder für eine Singstimme und Pianoforte. Gedichtet und vertont von Heinrich Pestalozzi. Mit Zeichnungen von Georg Ludwig Hahn" in Berlin bei Wernthal erscheinen sollte. – Heinrich Pestalozzi studierte Theologie in Zürich, Basel, Tübingen und Berlin, legte 1902 das theologische Staatsexamen ab und studierte dann an der Musikhochschule sowie am Sternschen Konservatorium in Berlin Violine und Komposition. „Nach einer Tätigkeit als Gesangslehrer nahm er 1912 eine Pfarrstelle in Arosa an und ging 1917 als Lehrer für Sologesang nach Zürich. Pestalozzi komponierte Lieder, Chöre, Klavierstücke und Violinsonaten. Er schrieb Gedichte und musikpädagogische Werke (u. a. ‚Die deutsche Bühnenaussprache im Gesang’ [.], 1925; ‚Kehlkopfgymnastik’, 1925)" (DBE). – Gelocht (tls. minimale Buchstabenberührung) und tls. mit kleineren Randläsuren.

        The Sun Also Rises

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1926 First edition, first issue with "stoppped" for "stopped" on page 181. Publisher's black cloth, with gold title labels to the front board and spine, Cleon vignette illustration to the title page. Near fine or better, with some minor rubbing and a faint vertical crease to the spine label, otherwise bright and unfaded spine, fresh and clean interior. A lovely copy. The Sun Also Rises is Hemingway's second novel and is considered his most important work. The text tells the story of American and British expatriates who travel to the Festival of San Fermínin in Pamplona, Spain. The plot, which is based on Hemingway's own experience at the Festival of San Fermínin with literary expatriates then living in Paris, unites Hemingway's main interests that continue to appear in his subsequent novels. Additionally, The Sun Also Rises utilizes the Iceberg Theory so evident in much of Hemingway's writing, where the true essence of the story is not expressly said in the plot but rather is meant to be inferred. Hemingway's experiences in Pamplona inspired his interest and vast knowledge of bullfighting, which he showcased in his non-fiction work Death in the Afternoon.. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

Cheesman encountered Sir Percy Cox when serving with the Mesopotamian Expeditionary Force, a shared interest in ornithology, "Together they undertook to collect the avifauna of Iraq …While Cox was high commissioner in Iraq, Cheesman was his private secretary (1920?-23). He was elected to the British Ornithologists' Club in 1919, a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society in 1920, and a corresponding member of the Zoological Society of London in 1921" (ODNB). His geographical work began in 1921 when "he was placed in charge of charting the western shore of the Gulf of Salwah" (Howgego), and in 1923-4 "he spent eleven weeks at Al Hufuf, after which he proceeded south to become the first European to reach the remote oasis of Jabrin, fixing its precise position, mapping large areas of surrounding desert and identifying the site of ancient Gerra." For this work, which is the subject of the present account, he was awarded the RGS Gill Memorial Medal.

        El Habitante Y Su Esperanza [Association Copy: Signed, Placed, and Dated]

      Editorial Nascimento, 1926, Wrappers, Book Condition: Very Good, First edition. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original cream-colored wrappers (some handling soil, small stain to the spine head and adjoining portion of each wrapper, title to the front wrapper underlined in blue, evidence of neat early repairs to the spine ends and edges and to the hinges -- in better condition than we are used to seeing), SIGNED BY PABLO NERUDA on the front free endpaper and there inscribed by him as follows: para / Maury / Austin / Bromsen / [illegible] / Neruda / 1947". Neruda also has placed his inscription and signature in "Santiago / de Chile". [Bromsen, the inscribee, was a noted American bibliophile and book dealer who spent 1941 and 1947 (the year Neruda inscribed this book) at the University of Chile as both student and teacher. An expert in Latin America, Bromsen was a member of the Department of Cultural Affairs for the Pan American Union and built the finest collection of manuscript and iconographic items in the United States related to his hero Simon Bolivar, a leader in the struggle for South American independence, as well as other materials relating to colonial Spanish America spanning the period from Columbus' arrival to Bolivar's death.] Neruda's only novel, El Habitante Y Su Esperanza [The Inhabitant and His Hope], evokes a brooding atmosphere while telling its tale of a jailed horse thief in love with the wife of a fellow felon. A dark work, the novel explores the baser human instincts with its tales of adultery and violent revenge, often speaking to the reader through surreal dreams and lyrical descriptions. While Neruda's habit was to sign his works in green ink -- with green symbolizing hope, IT IS QUITE NOTABLE THAT HE HAS SIGNED THIS BLEAK NOVEL IN BLUE RATHER THAN IN HIS COLOR OF HOPE. [Every other book signed by Neruda that we have handled or otherwise seen has been signed in green ink.] The book itself is not common in the first edition and signed copies of it are as scarce as hen's teeth -- with the auction records showing no signed copy ever having come to auction as of the creation of this listing. A Very Good ASSOCIATION COPY OF PABLO NERUDA'S ONLY NOVEL, SIGNED BY PABLO NERUDA AND QUITE SIGNIFICANTLY SIGNED IN BLUE RATHER THAN IN GREEN. Housed in a custom chemise and slipcase. EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE AND QUITE POSSIBLY RARE.

        The Miracle

      Paris: H. Chachoin, 1926. First edition. Canvas backed. Margins expertly restored; a few wrinkles and creases, and a repaired tear in image, overall very good or better (B+).. Two sheets. Morris Gest (1881-1942) was one of Broadway's most successful theatrical producers of the of the first three decades of the twentieth century. Born Mishka Gershonovitch near Vilnius, Lithuania, he came to America and went on to work with Oscar Hammerstein and then F. Ray Comstock, producing extravaganzas, and importing Russian works for the New York stage. The Miracle was the most costly of his productions, A pantomime first produced in 1911, it was revised by Friedrich Schirmer, had a score by Engelbert Humperdinck, was designed by Norman Bel Geddes, and directed by the famed Max Reinhardt. The production costs were unheard of at the time, running nearly $600,000 in 1924. The play grossed over $2,000,000 in New York, performing to sold-out houses at the Century theater, which had been converted into a cathedral for the production. Gest needed to keep the show touring to recoup his astronomical costs. Georges Pogedaieff (1897-1971) began as a theater designer in Russia for the Theatre Intime, the Korsch, and later the Bolshoi. He went on to design sets an costume in major European cities before settling in Paris in 1925. Quite scarce. We have located only one copy: in the Morris Gest archive at the Harry Ransom Center, Univ. Texas.

        Treatment of Pernicious Anemia by a Special Diet. (Offprint from "The Journal of the American Medical Association", Aug. 14, 1926, Vol. 87, pp. 470-476).

      Chicago, American Medical Association, 1926. 8vo. Offprint in the original printed wrappers. Previous owner's name to top right corner of front wrapper. A very fine and clean copy. 19 pp.. First printing, in the scarce offprint, of Minot and Murphy's seminal Nobel Prize winning paper which "ranks as one of the greatest modern advances in [anemia] therapy." (GM). Minot and Murphy shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1934 with George Whipple "for their discoveries concerning liver therapy in cases of anaemia". "The brilliant discovery by Minot and Murphy in 1926, demonstrating the dramatic effectiveness of liver preparations in pernicious anemia, forms one of the landmarks in the history of therapeutics." (Satoskar, Pharmacology and Pharmacotherapeutics)."Prompted by pathologist George Whipple's research on the feeding of liver to anemic dogs, Minot and Murphy fed liver to their patients. In a now famous 1926 paper [the present], they announced its miraculous benefits for forty-five otherwise doomed souls" (Wailoo, Drawing Blood: technology and Disease Identity in Twentieth-Century America). Up until the 1920'ies, pernicious anemia (also known as "blood thinning" disease) was a fatal disease, for which there was no cure. People who developed pernicious anemia - characterized by dangerously low counts of red blood cells - were left exhausted, hospitalized, and without the hope of being cured. "Minot's work and that of numerous pupils during the decade after 1926 initiated a new era in clinical hematology by replacing the largely morphologic studies of the blood and of the blood-forming and blood-destroying organs with dynamic measurements of their functions." (DSB).In the early 1920s, most doctors believed that pernicious anemia was caused by a toxic substance in the body, and they prescribed doses of arsenic, transfusions, or removal of the spleen as treatments. But after these remedies were administered, patients had relapses, and death was inevitable. Across the world, 6,000 lives a year were lost to the scourge of pernicious anemia."In 1923, Minot met William P. Murphy, who had graduated from Harvard Medical School in 1922 and who was to become an assistant instructor at Harvard Medical School in 1924. In their investigations to find a cure for pernicious anemia, Minot believed that research by George Whipple, a researcher whom he had known while both were at Johns Hopkins Hospital, was particularly significant. Whipple had completed experiments in which he bled dogs to make them anemic. Then he determined which foods restored their red blood cells. His results showed that red meat and certain vegetables were effective treatments, but liver was the best treatment. Minot wondered if Whipple's findings with dogs could be duplicated in humans. He and Murphy were determined to try it, and proceeded to do so with their private patients. Observing an increase in the patients' red blood cell counts, they thought they were on the right track, and decided to try the experiment with hospitalized patients which eventually led to their landmark discovery." (The Harward University Gazette, 1998).After Minot and Murphy's verification of Whipple's results in 1926, pernicious anemia victims ate or drank at least one-half pound of raw liver, or drank raw liver juice, every day. This continued for several years, until a concentrate of liver juice became available.The active ingredient in liver remained unknown until 1948, when it was isolated by chemists Karl A. Folkers.Garrison & Morton: 3140

Throughout the poem, several literary devices are used to guide the reader through the mixture of emotions the blues player is feeling." also: "James Mercer Langston Hughes (February 1, 1902 ?- May 22, 1967) was an American poet, social activist, novelist, playwright, and columnist. He was one of the earliest innovators of the then-new literary art form called jazz poetry. Hughes is best known as a leader of the Harlem Renaissance. He famously wrote about the period that "the negro was in vogue", which was later paraphrased as "when Harlem was in vogue"."; Signed by Author .

        LA TENTATION DE SAINT ANTOINE

      Paris: Henri Reynaud, 1926. No. 196 OF 262 COPIES on Arches paper, from a total edition of 343 n. Hardcover. 240 x 190 mm (9 1/2 x 7 1/2"). 292 pp., [3] leaves. No. 196 OF 262 COPIES on Arches paper, from a total edition of 343. Publisher's cream-colored printed wrapper. WITH 20 MINIATURES BY ARTHUR SZYK, COLORED BY JEAN SAUDÉ. The spine of the original insubstantial binding with faint creases and two tears (one short, one three inches long), one gathering becoming loose, but the binding and contents in extremely clean, fresh, and bright condition. This edition of Flaubert's dramatic poem recounting the Devil's temptation of Saint Anthony the Great is illustrated with remarkable pochoir plates distinguished by their creator and their colorist. Flaubert spent more than 25 years writing and rewriting this work, which was finally published in 1874. It recounts one day in the life of the Desert Father who is considered the founder of Western monasticism, a day during which Satan tries to lure him away from God using promises of wealth, power, revenge, carnality, and other forms of indulgence. The "Oxford Companion" calls it "remarkable for its beauty of style and language, and its imaginative power." It certainly fired the imagination of illustrator Arthur Szyk (1894-1951), whom Seymour de Ricci described as "a new Byzantinist." The richly detailed miniatures here provide a foreshadowing of the style that would bring Szyk fame with his "Haggadah" (1939), one of the great illuminated books of the 20th century. As impressive as the illustrations themselves is the coloring by Jean Saudé, the master of the pochoir technique, and someone who literally wrote the book on the subject. Saudé had to make hundreds of stencils here to apply the individual hues that give fabrics their drape and texture, Persian rugs their pattern, and real and fantastical creatures their amazing detail.

Neruda also has placed his inscription and signature in "Santiago / de Chile". Pablo Neruda won the 1971 Nobel Prize in Literature for "a poetry that with the action of an elemental force brings alive a continent's destiny and dreams". [Bromsen, the inscribee, was a noted American bibliophile and book dealer who spent 1941 and 1947 (the year Neruda inscribed this book) at the University of Chile as both student and teacher. An expert in Latin America, Bromsen was a member of the Department of Cultural Affairs for the Pan American Union and built the finest collection of manuscript and iconographic items in the United States related to his hero Simon Bolivar, a leader in the struggle for South American independence, as well as other materials relating to colonial Spanish America spanning the period from Columbus' arrival to Bolivar's death.] Neruda's only novel, El Habitante Y Su Esperanza [The Inhabitant and His Hope], evokes a brooding atmosphere while telling its tale of a jailed horse thief in love with the wife of a fellow felon. A dark work, the novel explores the baser human instincts with its tales of adultery and violent revenge, often speaking to the reader through surreal dreams and lyrical descriptions. While Neruda's habit was to sign his works in green ink -- with green symbolizing hope, IT IS QUITE NOTABLE THAT HE HAS SIGNED THIS BLEAK NOVEL IN BLUE RATHER THAN IN HIS COLOR OF HOPE. [Every other book signed by Neruda that we have handled or otherwise seen has been signed in green ink.] The book itself is not common in the first edition and signed copies of it are as scarce as hen's teeth -- with the auction records showing no signed copy ever having come to auction as of the creation of this listing. A Very Good ASSOCIATION COPY OF PABLO NERUDA'S ONLY NOVEL, SIGNED BY PABLO NERUDA AND QUITE SIGNIFICANTLY SIGNED IN BLUE RATHER THAN IN GREEN. Housed in a custom chemise and slipcase. EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE AND QUITE POSSIBLY RARE.
