First edition, first binding; black cloth with "Faber & Gwyer" printed at base of spine panel. Presentation copy with signed inscription by Morris on front free endpaper: "Chas James Ryan / with the gratitude of / Kenneth Morris." The author's second book and the only collection of his short fiction published during his lifetime. The stories assembled for this collection "were selected from work written after 1914, and generally promulgate Theosophical principles with unobtrusive and supple tact. The world of the senses can be understood as manifesting a stage of meaning, a phase in the progression towards a higher reality, but with full reality always immanent. Mortality is generally contrasted with immortality as a matter of choice: mortals choose to serve, immortals choose transcendence. The settings run from the Wales of Celtic fantasy, with which Morris is most clearly associated, through Greece, Rome, India and China. Sages and other liminal beings offer gnomic advice, and point the way upwards. The narrative tend to serenity... Morris's influence has been small, but he is central to the genre." - Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (1997), pp. 663-64. Until the final decades of the twentieth- century Morris's work was relatively unknown due to the scarcity of his books. Ursula K. Le Guin considers Morris, E. R. Eddison and J. R. R. Tolkien to be the three "master stylists" of modern fantasy. Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 3-255. Schlobin, The Literature of Fantasy 799. Survey of Modern Fantasy Literature III, pp. 1372-74. Tymn (ed), Fantasy Literature, pp. 144-45. Reginald 10396. Zahorski and Boyer, p. 215.

        A System of Physical Chemistry, 2 Volumes

      Longmans, Green and Co, London 1926 - 1926, RAMSAY, Sir William (1852-1916) A Scottish chemist born in Glasgow where he studied classics before he qualified in chemistry from Tubingen. He was appointed Professor of Chemistry at the University College, Bristol, in 1880, and moved to London in 1887. He was the first to realise the significance of Henry Cavendish's (1731-1810) experiments, which pointed to the presence of a gas other than nitrogen and oxygen in the air. Working on this hypothesis, Ramsay and John William Strutt Rayleigh (1842-1919) announced their discovery of Argon in 1894. Ramsay also studied the Brownian movements proposed by Robert Brown in 1827, and explained it on the basis of collision between pollen grains and molecules of the liquid, in 1879. He served as Professor of Chemistry at the University College of London from 1887 to 1912, and was awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1904. He published Essays Biographical and Chemical (1908), The Gases of the Atmosphere and the History of Their Discovery (1905) and several other works. On thermodynamics, colloidal chemistry, diffusion, 0.0 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Cover Charge

      New York: Boni & Liveright. 1926. First. First edition. Corners bumped, modest tears at the spine ends, and hinges starting, a near very good copy lacking the very uncommon dustwrapper. First book by the much admired genre writer whose work is periodically rediscovered. This copy is nicely Inscribed by the author in the year of publication, utilizing most of the front fly: "To Ken Daughrity in memory of many pleasant sympathies we share / from his devoted friend Cornell Woolrich. New York Aug. 10, 1926." Daughrity's pencil signature appears on the rear fly as "D'Aughrity," and a penciled address is on the front pastedown. Kenneth L. Daughrity was an Edgar Allan Poe scholar who published several papers on Poe in the 1930s. A pleasant association as Woolrich is considered one of the great 20th Century successors to Poe. The novel, which is a Jazz Age imitation of Woolrich's then-idol F. Scott Fitzgerald, features a female character named Vera Dougherty, and perhaps the recipient of this copy lent a variation of his name to her. Woolrich signed little, and but for this copy, we've never seen a copy of his first book signed. .

        Nigger Heaven

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf. 1926. First. First edition. Some chipping to the cloth at the crown, front hinge neatly restored, still a sound, very good copy lacking the rare dustwrapper. This copy Inscribed to Dorothy Peterson: "Carl Van Vechten to his friend Dorothy Peterson. July 25, 1926." A novel about a young couple in Harlem, set amid the cabarets and soirees of the Harlem Renaissance, which has been controversial ever since it was published because of its title. However, Van Vechten, who was white, was tireless in his support of African-American artists and writers even after the glamour of the Renaissance, which had drawn so many white intellectuals to Harlem, had waned. The recipient, Dorothy Peterson, was the model for the book's female heroine. Peterson co-founded both the Harlem Experimental Theatre and the Harlem Suitcase Theatre, and her home was one of Harlem's most important and well-attended literary salons. She also devoted herself to collecting manuscripts of Harlem Renaissance notables, and eventually helped Van Vechten donate the material that was the basis for the James Weldon Johnson Memorial Collection of Negro Arts and Letters at Yale University. She was a sponsor of the short-lived but influential periodical Fire!!, and was also reputed to be "the one Afro-American woman [Jean] Toomer [who soon after married a white woman] was once thought to care about" (Berry, p.214). A spectacular association copy. .

        Quatre histoires de blanc et noir

      Paris: G. Kadar, 1926. Edizione originale di 300 esemplari numerati. Fogli sciolti in custodia di carta pesante color crema con titolo e autore impressi in xilografia al dorso e al piatto anteriore (Loose as issued in original portfolio). Ottimo (Fine). 4to (cm 33,3 x 25,8). Il volume si compone di 1 xilografia alla prima di copertina + 2 xilografie non numerate (frontespizio e una pagina di testo) + 23 xilografie numerate + 1 colophon + 1 pagina sciolta, per un totale di 56 pagine non numerate, stampate su carta color avorio di cm 33x25,3 (dimensioni delle incisioni variano da cm 9x9 a cm 20,5x15,5). Lâ&#128;&#153;edizione comprende 300 esemplari (100 numerati 1-100 firmati dallâ&#128;&#153;Artista con una suite extra delle incisioni; 200 esemplari numerati 101-300). Si conoscono altre copie del volume differentemente assemblate: alcune con una incisione in più, ma sprovviste della pagina di testo; altre con 29 xilografie (che includono varianti del frontespizio o del fregio al colophon). Kupka infatti finanziò personalmente l&#39;edizione andando così incontro ad un tracollo finanziario: le copie dovettero quindi essere assemblate in modi differenti. Le 26 xilografie in bianco e nero create per il volume sono frutto della piena maturazione artistica di Kupka [Bibliografia: "A Century of Artists Books" di Riva Castleman, pp. 134] Quatre histoires de blanc et noir" is made up of 1 woodcut on front of wrappers + 2 unnumbered plates (title page and a page of text) + 23 numbered woodcuts + 1 colophon tailpiece + 1 loose page. A total of 56 unnumbered sheets of 33x25.3 cm, printed on cream paper. Loose as issued in cream wrappers with woodcut and lettering also on spine. The edition comprehends 300 copies (100 numbered 1-100 and signed by the Artist with extra suite of first state woodcuts; 200 numbered 101-300). The 25 woodcuts Kupka created for this volume display the full range of his mature expression, dramatically rendered in stark black and white. Other differently assembled copies are known: some with 1 more woodcut and without the text page; some with 29 woodcuts (including variant of title page on wrapper front, ornamental initial and colophon tailpiece); some with supplementary suite of 26 woodcuts. The edition of this book was really disastrous for the Artist: he personally financed the whole edition and doing so he did bankruptcy, so the copies were assembled in different ways.
