        "Merry Xmas"

      (1926). Original artwork, pencil and watercolor on paper. Measuring 17.75" x 15". Some chipping along the bottom edge and left-hand side with a few closed tears, mounted onto the remnants of an illustration board, but still in very good condition. Humorous scene of men and boys in a Model-T racing down a country road and almost hitting a rooster. Apparently produced by Cummings as a Christmas gift with his Inscription in the lower right-hand corner: "Merry Xmas from A.B. + E.E.C. 1926." "A. B." most likely refers to Anne Barton, Cummings' second wife. Lopez #1253. .

        Sangschaw; together with Penny Wheep.

      Edinburgh & London William Blackwood and Sons 1925; 1926 - Two octavo volumes. First edition of the Scottish poet Hugh M'Diarmid's first collection of poetry, in the second binding, together with a first edition of his second book. Hugh M'Diarmid, or MacDiarmid, as it is more commonly written, was the pen name of Christopher Murray Grieve. MacDiarmid was the leading light of the Scottish Literary Renaissance that occurred in the first half of the twentieth century. He developed and wrote in a synthetic Scots vernacular that incorporated elements of many regional dialects and integrated archaic words and phrases used by Scotland's late medieval poets. Scots was fading from common and literary use and was most often only used in poetry to evoke a sense of the past; instead, MacDiarmid sought to update and revolutionize the language, making it relevant to the modern era. He also believed that the Scottish psyche could not be expressed in English alone, and as a result, he wanted to create a national voice. Sangschaw contains MacDiarmid's first Scots lyric, The Watergaw, and extensive glossaries follow the poems in both volumes. Both bound in blue cloth, with the original light blue dust wrappers lettered in black. Dust wrappers are toned to spines and margins of the panels, and each has a stray mark to the front panel. Penny Wheep has a short, closed tear to the front panel, else both are in fine condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

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.

        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.

        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. .
