        Tam-tam: hudební leták; gazette musicale [Tam-tam: a musical bulletin], nos. 3, 4, 5, 6 (of six published)

      self-published, Prague 1926 - Octavos (20 × 14 cm). Original staple-stitched typo- illustrated self-wrappers (most likely by Karel Teige); 32 pp. each. Illustrations and typo-design throughout. Very light wear to spine folds; still very good, with the last three issues uncut and unopened. A substantial run of this short-lived avant-garde journal, one of the only Czech periodicals clearly influenced by Dada. Published by Ctibor Blatný, E. F. Burian, Jindrich Hýbler and Jirí Maránek, it contains musical "sketches" and compositions, cryptic anecdotes, ramblings, and theoretical articles, including a translation of S. A. Boguslavsky's essay on Moscow composers and a piece titled "Polydynamics" by E. F. Burian. Tam-tam also features reproductions of work by ?tyrský, Toyen, ?íma, Obrtel, and Rodchenko. While it does not use the term "Dada" itself, Jind ich Toman has suggested that the journal's name, which translates to "there-there" (in German: da-da), points to its aesthetic orientation. More importantly, Toman notes the aggressive, iconoclastic tone of the contributions, its faible for fragmentary and illogical proclamations, and a general tendency toward a "beautiful ugliness" (see his essay "Te to vidí?, te u? ne," 2007). The four issues also feature some of the most striking typographic compositions of the Czech avant-garde. Although he is not credited explicitly, they are most likely the work of Karel Teige. Typographic manicules, which Teige used during this period, are also a frequent device in Kurt Schwitters' design for Merz, the Hannover Dada periodical, to which Teige's compositions bear a certain resemblance. Another telling detail are the vertically crossed lines, found on the rear wrappers of one of the issues. Not in Vloemans. Rare, with no copies found in KVK, OCLC. According to its online catalog, the Czech National Library at some time deaccessioned its only copy of a single issue (no. 2). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Savonarola. A Dramatic Poem

      London: R. Cobden-Sanderson, 1926. First edition, 300 copies printed. xv, [1], 99 pp. 8vo. Original black cloth with white paper spine label, gray dust jacket printed in black. A few chips and minor toning to jacket. First edition, 300 copies printed. xv, [1], 99 pp. 8vo. Dedication copy. Dedication copy, inscribed by the author, the mother of T.S. Eliot, to Eliot's sister: "Marian C. Eliot / With dear love / from / Mother." The book is dedicated: "To My Children." T.S. Eliot wrote the introduction to the book and helped arrange for its publication. An educator, social reformer, and a published writer of essays and poems, Charlotte Champe Stearns Eliot (1843-1929) never achieved her literary ambitions, but encouraged Eliot in his own. She wrote to Eliot while he was still at Harvard: "I hope in your literary work you will receive early the recognition I strove for and failed. I should so have loved a college course, but was obliged to teach before I was nineteen ... 'a young lady of unusual brilliancy as a scholar' my old yellow testimonial says, but when I was set to teaching young children, my Trigonometry and Astronomy counted for naught, and I made a dead failure" (Letters Vol I, 2011, p. 11).

        Vastu hommikut : novellid (Before the Morning : Short Stories)

      Loodus, Tartu 1926 - Estonian language. Octavo 14 x 20 cm. Weight 400 gr. Wrappers, 269 [1] pp. The book is in Near Fine condition, without any visible defects, losses, remarks and stains. Cover edges show some fraying, some minor closed tears along the bottom edge of the cover, damaged bottom end of the spine, back cover is slightly soiled, dump stain on the bottom edge of back cover and on the inner side of the bottom edge of front cover; internally occasional fingerprints and hardly evident trace of moisture along the bottom edge of some pages. Current collection includes eight short stories created in the last two years. Here are represented almost all narrative types: real life observations in realist "Vastu hommikut" (Before the Morning), the folk-mystic theme in "Libahunt" (Werewolf), stories on biblical subjects in "Laatsarus" (Lazarus) and "Barrabas", caricatured characters in "Viimne romantik" (The Last Romantic). But, despite these content differences, all the stories have one strong common feature - psychological analysis. The writer is striving to emphasize, first and foremost, on soul motives of the characters, what he has succeed. Besides author is very inventive about interesting psychological situations, the life humor is a reviving soul of all stories. All of these express writer individualism and originality. Estonian writer August Gailit (1891-1960) could be named as a giant among the large number of gifted world novelists. Writer of exuberant imagination, who is immediately recognizable by his style, which probably leaves nobody indifferent. In 1917 Gailit, along with some other writers and poets, founded modernist literary group called Siuru, he was expressionist-naturalist member of the group. Until the middle of the 1920s Gailit was strongly influenced by neo-romanticism. As a talented master of words with an extraordinary style, choice of subject and type, Gailit focused throughout his creative life on the eternal opposition of beauty and ugliness, positive and negative. He tried to shock the reader by cynical sarcasm, decadence, symbolist grotesque. In the middle of the 1920s neo-romanticism in literature subsided and realism raised, this significantly changed Gailits literary creation. Symbolistic expressionist style novels replaced by dramatic style works, in which treatment of human soul became much more prominent. Author's cult novels collections of realistic period were "Vastu hommikut" and "Ristisõitjad". Gailits legendary specific literary style was achieved through a lot of changes. Each period of writer's creative life has given to Estonian novels culture something important and unique. Book's amazing constructivist cover design created by Jaan Vahtra (1882-1947), one of the most bright talents of Estonian modern art, a founding member of the Estonian Art Group of Cubism and Constructivism. Very important is his creative work of graphic art in journalism and book design. Vahtra mostly created cover designs, which retained the constructivist manner. Cubism and constructivism, which are known to operate with abstract figures as opposed to the expression of feelings of expressionism, normally eliminate any kind of emotion. Only the form is important, the rational organisation of surfaces, the play of the relations of colour. Vahtra drawings have strong features, retaining a firm composition and legibility of font. He cleansed the cover design of excessive details and over-crowding. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Baillière's Synthetic Anatomy.

      London: Baillière, Tindall & Cox,, [c.1926–36]. Complete in Fourteen Parts. 14 parts in 1 volume, small quarto. Original tan cloth, spine and front board lettered and blocked in red, bound at top edge using green wire ties, each part in the original paper wrappers printed in blue. Colour plates printed on glassine for superimposition, interleaved with text leaves ("Author's Introduction" and "Instructions for Use"), a few bound in but most loose as issued. Contemporary ownership inscription of John P. Delich to front board recto and verso, the latter dated October 1947, and to rear board recto. Boards a little marked with some faint dampstain to rear, contents toned, otherwise in very good condition. Complete run of Baillière's vividly coloured layered anatomy atlas in the publisher's binding case, named "the best and most convenient substitute for the body" by the British Journal of Surgery. Designed by Dr John Eric Cheesman, a medical officer of health in London, and aimed at medical students, it could be bought in separate parts as required for study–with sections on the "Hand", "Thorax", "Head and Neck", and "Eye and Orbit", to name a few—or as a complete work. The illustrations were first prepared from radiograms and then submitted to a school of anatomy for close comparison against recent dissections. Their colour-coding (bones and cartilage in white; arteries in red; veins in blue; nerves in yellow; and so on) and the accompanying indexes enabled students to easily locate specific anatomical regions or parts. "Many responses to the atlas were favourable: medical journals confirmed students' appreciation of it, that it complemented learning through dissection, and that it was welcomed as an aid to studying the surface anatomy of living bodies. The atlas's distribution of over 100,000 copies in several languages was seen as ample 'evidence of its proved value' in teaching anatomy" (Hallam, p. 302). The atlas was, as Cheesman wrote, "intended to fulfil three purposes—To give to those who have not yet formed one a definite, composite, and stereoscopic mental picture of every region of the body, which can be learnt step by step, and part by part, by repeated drawing; to marshal any images already obtained, and place them where they may be found at the proper time, and receive more light and development while the opportunity exists; to provide a permanent record for the student of what he knows, and help him to recall what he has learnt" (Author's Introduction).

      Grey, an avid outdoorsman, spent nearly a decade from 1921 to 929 visiting his cabin on the Mogollon Rim, usually in the fall months. Books like "Under the Tonto Rim," "Call of the Canyon" and "Tales of Lonely Trails" were written during this period and set in Arizona. In all, Grey wrote 57 novels, with 28 having Arizona themes."He came to this area in 1918 to hunt," says Lisa Rasley of the Rim Country Museum of Payson. "After spending some time in the Payson area getting to know the pioneer families, he decided he wanted to come back to this area on a regular basis to hunt, fish and write. He purchased land from one of the pioneer families and asked them to build him a hunting lodge."."Harper & Brothers.

        Id Quod Visum Placet; A practical test of the beautiful

      [Waltham Saint Lawrence]: [The Golden Cockerel Press], 1926. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. Gill, Eric. No. 40(?) of 150, signed by author/artist. Blue paper over boards backed in cream linen, with printed paper title label to front board; frontispiece"David" (P372), "Flying Buttresses" (P373) other plate, "St. Thomas's Hands" (P382) to title page, the first book in which Eric Gill used the latter engraving. Id Quod Visum Placet marks the beginning of Gill's working relationship with Douglas Cleverdon. At the time, Cleverdon was a young, ambitious antiquarian bookseller whose Bristol shop was a frequent stopping point for Gill; Gill took him on to be the distributor for the book and Cleverdon published Gill's Art & Love the next year; Gill painted his friend's nameplate for the shop in a rather austere sans serif, thereby setting into motion a now somewhat apocryphal story about the origin of the Gill Sans typeface. Small octavo (8" x 4-3/4"), pagination: [6], (1)-19, [1]. Strip of sunning to top edge of both boards and rear joint, else fine, with sharp corners and pristine, unopened leaves. Gill no. 14. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard shipping charge does not always cover costs; please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind book we sell.

        Baillière's Synthetic Anatomy. Complete in Fourteen Parts.

      London: Baillière, Tindall & Cox, [c.1926&#150;36] - 14 parts in 1 volume, small quarto. Original tan cloth, spine and front board lettered and blocked in red, bound at top edge using green wire ties, each part in the original paper wrappers printed in blue. Boards a little marked with some faint dampstain to rear, contents toned, otherwise in very good condition. Colour plates printed on glassine for superimposition, interleaved with text leaves ("Author's Introduction" and "Instructions for Use"), a few bound in but most loose as issued. Contemporary ownership inscription of John P. Delich to front board recto and verso, the latter dated October 1947, and to rear board recto. Complete run of Baillière's vividly coloured layered anatomy atlas in the publisher's binding case, named "the best and most convenient substitute for the body" by the British Journal of Surgery. Designed by Dr John Eric Cheesman, a medical officer of health in London, and aimed at medical students, it could be bought in separate parts as required for study&#150;with sections on the "Hand", "Thorax", "Head and Neck", and "Eye and Orbit", to name a few&#151;or as a complete work. The illustrations were first prepared from radiograms and then submitted to a school of anatomy for close comparison against recent dissections. Their colour-coding (bones and cartilage in white; arteries in red; veins in blue; nerves in yellow; and so on) and the accompanying indexes enabled students to easily locate specific anatomical regions or parts. "Many responses to the atlas were favourable: medical journals confirmed students' appreciation of it, that it complemented learning through dissection, and that it was welcomed as an aid to studying the surface anatomy of living bodies. The atlas's distribution of over 100,000 copies in several languages was seen as ample 'evidence of its proved value' in teaching anatomy" (Hallam, p. 302). The atlas was, as Cheesman wrote, "intended to fulfil three purposes&#151;To give to those who have not yet formed one a definite, composite, and stereoscopic mental picture of every region of the body, which can be learnt step by step, and part by part, by repeated drawing; to marshal any images already obtained, and place them where they may be found at the proper time, and receive more light and development while the opportunity exists; to provide a permanent record for the student of what he knows, and help him to recall what he has learnt" (Author's Introduction).

"The Press is named after the Tudor Palace of Nonesuch; the building itself and two figures from one of its still preserved tapestries suggested the devices of the Press, which were designed and engraved on copper by Mr. Stephen Gooden." The text of this edition of Milton's English poems is, by arrangement with the delegates of the Oxford University Press, that edited by the late Canon Beeching after the earliest printed copies of the several poems. The illustrations by Blake were chosen and titled by Geoffrey Keynes. This copy comes from the library of Henry Rouse Viets (1890-1969), a neurologist, medical historian, and member of Harvard's Faculty of Medicine for thirty-six years. ***DESCRIPTION: Original full vellum on thick boards with title in gilt to backstrip, thick off-white endpapers, 53 monochrome plates, title-page printed in black and red, arabesque ornaments, Monotype Poliphilus and Blado types, India paper, octavo 6 1/8" x 10", pagination: [viii], [1]-359, limited edition, this number 28 of 90 copies printed on India paper in one volume (total edition 1450), with the book plate of Henry Rouse Viets inlaid to first pastedown.

        AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT POEM (Juvenilia - 4 pages): "Bank Holiday"

      [1926] 1926 - Exceptionally scarce 4-page AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT of a poem written by Auden as a teenager. Published in THE OXFORD OUTLOOK in November 1926 and not published in book form until 1994 in W. H. AUDEN JUVENILIA edited by Katherine Bucknell, from which much of the information below was acquired. Two other manuscript copies of this poem are known to exist, in the collections of David Ayerst (Bloomfield J16) and of Christopher Isherwood, neither exactly identical to this but both resembling this much more than the published version which eliminated several stanzas present here. All told there are 78 lines divided into three sections on both sides of two 6-7/8" x 8-7/8" sheets of paper watermarked "Civic Bond" that have long ago been neatly joined by a conservator who also made several paper repairs. The poem begins "The queen's hand on the king's cold shoulder falling." Bucknell points out that the poem is reminiscent of THE WASTE LAND with the left out passages revealing some borrowing from Eliot's "The Hollow Men." This manuscript was acquired along with a letter from Auden to Robert Medley and was likely given to Medley at some point. Auden met and became friends with Medley in 1922 shortly after Auden's 15th birthday. It was Robert Medley who suggested that Auden try writing poetry. Later Medley helped to create the Group Theater where he provided scenery and costumes for the play ON THE FRONTIER by Auden and Isherwood. Several words on the last page are partly faded and obliterated by a repaired tear. A spectacular find in Good to Very Good condition [Attributes: Signed Copy]
