        The Torrents of Spring

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons,, 1926. A Romantic Novel in Honor of the Passing of a Great Race. Octavo. Original dark green cloth, with title printed in red to spine and front board. With the dust jacket. Housed in a black quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Adams bookplate to front pastedown. Spine of dust wrapper sunned, some creasing and a few small tears. A fine copy in a very good dust wrapper. Hanneman records that the print-run for this edition was 1,250 copies. "The Torrents of Spring" was Hemingway's first novella, and it was first turned down by his publisher Horace Liveright, who claimed that it was unpublishable because "it is such a bitter, and I might say almost vicious caricature of Sherwood Anderson ... we are rejecting Torrents of Spring because we disagree with you and Scott Fitzgerald and Louis Bromfield and Dos Passos, that it is a fine and humorous American satire" (Gilmer 124). This rejection prompted Hemingway to break his contract with Boni and Liveright and join Scribner's, which would remained his publisher for the rest of his life.

        Charmes, 1926, livre ayant appartenu à Antoine de Saint Exupéry

      Antoine de Saint Exupery fut engagé en 1926 par la compagnie Latécoère (future Aéropostale) et transporta le courrier de Toulouse au Sénégal . A partir de septembre 1929, il rejoignit Mermoz et Guillaumet en Amérique du Sud pour contribuer au développement de l?Aéropostale jusqu?en Patagonie jusqu?au 31 mars 1931 date de sa liquidation judiciaire. Chargé tout d'abord de la création de la ligne de Patagonie, jusqu'à Punta Arenas, comme directeur de l'Aeroposta Argentina, il vola beaucoup sur les Latécoère 25, 26 ou Potez 25 et 29, pour effectuer toutes les reconnaissances nécessaires à la création de sa ligne et à l'établissement de ses escales. Tout d? abord, la page de garde de cette édition originale de Paul Valery comporte indubitablement la signature d? Antoine de Saint Exupery avec son écriture si particulière. Ensuite, la page de garde de ce livre comporte le tampon de Juan Toth gérant de l' hôtel Cosmos de Punta Arenas. Cet homme a acheté cet hôtel à la fin des années 20 période où Saint Exupery pris la direction de la l' Aeroposta Argentina et créa la ligne de Patagonie entre Commodo Rivadavia et Punta Arenas. Ce livre a été la propriété du célèbre auteur au cours d?une période d?une durée incertaine pouvant débuter en 1926 jusqu?à son transfert de possession volontaire ou involontaire à la fin des années 20 ou en 1930 ou 1931 . Il est à noter qu? en 1930, Saint Exupéry utilise la bibliothèque de son ami Paul Dony pour commettre divers sonnets inspirés d?autres poètes mais qui sont autant d?exercices de virtuosité poétique. Ensuite, Il publie Courrier Sud chez Gallimard qui est un succès commercial en France. En Décembre 1931, il publie son second roman, Vol de nuit, un immense succès, dans lequel il évoque ses années en Argentine et le développement des lignes vers la Patagonie. La reliure en très bon état est en demi chagrin avec un dos à deux nerfs orné d? une pièce de titre gravée à l?or fin . Les plats d? origine ont été conservés. L? intérieur contient l? édition originale de Charmes sur vélin publié par Gallimard en 1926 (n°5300).

        Allo! Paris! Avec vingt lithographies par Robert Delaunay.

      Paris, Editions des quatre chemins, (1926).. 110 S., 3 Bll. 20 Original-Lithographien von Robert Delaunay. Kl.-4°. OKart. mit montiertem OU (etw. gebräunt und kaum fleckg) und Tansparentpapierumschlag (mehrere kleinere Randeinrisse).. Nr. 301 von 275 (Gesamtauflage 365) Exemplaren der Normalausgabe aus "papier d'arches". - Erste Ausgabe des einzigen von Robert Delaunay illustrierten Buches, ein Meisterwerk kubistischer Buchillustration. - Monod 3581. The Artis and the book 72. - "Between 1922 and 1928, Delaunay executed five lithographs based on earlier paintings. The prints, like the paintings, exemplify Delaunay's engagement with the dynamism of Paris, as embodied primarily in its architecture. Favoring monochromatic drawings and prints over the brilliant color for which he was best known, the artist relied instead on chiaroscuro effects in concert with rhythmically placed lines and patterns. Delaunay drew throughout his career with the liquid tusche and greasy black crayon commonly used for lithography, so the process of making prints was not a great departure for him. In all, he made approximately thirty-five lithographs, most of which were book illustrations. A Parisian publisher had planned to include The Eiffel Tower in a portfolio of lithographs by Delaunay, with a text by French novelist Joris-Karl Huysmans, but the project was never completed. As the world's tallest monument at the time, the Eiffel Tower was for Delaunay a symbol of both modernity and masculinity, and he depicted it time and again. He was among the first artists to focus on this landmark as a subject, and it appears throughout his illustrated book Allo! Paris, with text by Joseph Delteil. Delaunay's more well-known, purely abstract imagery, comprising concentric, curved, and segmented bands, appears only rarely in his prints" (Jennifer Roberts. www.moma.org). - Papierbedingt leicht gebräunt, Vortitel stärker gebräunt. Teils unaufgeschnitten. Schönes kaum fleckiges Exemplar.

        Savonarola A Biography in Dramatic Episodes plus handwritten letters

      New York: Robert M. McBride, 1926. First Edition First Printing . Hardcover. Very Good/Good-. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. The unique correspondence that is laid in is a set of letter to Maude Merrill who had appeared in the Peter Pan stage production. They are typewritten by Van Wyck in the course of October, 1930. He has signed them added handwritten notes and post scripts. They concern Van Wyck's life and domestic situation at the time, but there are also passages where Van Wyck rhapsodizes about their earlier relationship (for example -" Peter Pan and Wendy - Dear God what a long time that was and how poignantly it affects me even yet"). There is also a Passionate hand written love letter to "My Beloved" (although a later sentence contains "I have missed my Wendy! My love..."). This stated first edition is clean, tight, basically square and unmarked in an about good dust jacket that looks better in Brodart. It is lightly rubbed at the edges and front board has a slight bow. The dust jacket has edge wear with several small chips and the spine is darkened. It has gray end papers and 263 clear pages with some minimal foxing in a one-quarter binding with maroon cloth covered boards with titles on a paste down on the spine. The boards are covered in brown cloth. The signatures are on the correspondence.
