        The Land Of Mist

      New York, George H. Doran Company 1926., 1926. First US Edition. 8vo. Near fine in publisher's green cloth with titles in black to spine and front board. Some residue remains of a white paper label that appears to have been fixed to the lower edge of the front board, aprt from this residue and a slight bump to the upper right hand corner the book is exceptionally clean and lovely. Slight spotting to the page edges, the book is clad in a lovely example of the fragile dustwrapper, wear to extremities and chipping to the top right hand corner of the front panel and to the base of the spine, otherwise unfaded and bright, some slight toning to the green and cream rear panel and spine but the virtues far outweigh the shortcomings. Scarce in the wrapper and even scarcer in a wrapper that doesn't look like it heaved itself down the Amazon wracked with yellow fever and babbling about dinosaurs. The third story in the series featuring Professor George Challenger, one of the most memorable characters in speculative fiction. Doyle's other great character beside Sherlock Holmes, Challenger had already starred in two novels 'The Lost World' (1912), and 'The Poison Belt' (1913) and would later appear in 'When the World Screamed' and 'The Disintegration Machine'; Brilliant, witty, insufferable, and blessed with a booming voice and a huge black beard, Challenger is an eccentric and able champion of the human race. Given the author's preoccupation with Spritism at this time, 'The Land of Mist' turned out to be a psychic adventure. Green and Gibson; A Bibliography of Arthur Conan Doyle.

        Typescripts with Author's Corrections for Two or Three Graces.

      - 103ff. typed carbon sheets comprising the typescripts for the complete contents of Huxley's 1926 collection, Two or Three Graces. In addition to the title novella, the collection contains three shorter stories: "The Monocle," "Fairy Godmother," and "Half-Holiday." This is likely the setting copy for the book, as some of the pencil notations are concerned with matters of font selection and page breaks; also, it has the Little & Ives receipt stamp on the verso of page 4, showing it as being received on 8 December 1925. Huxley composed almost all of his works on the typewriter, and these typescripts show the author's changes in black and red pen, as well as an editor's annotations in pencil for the printer. The title of "Fairy Godmother" was changed by Huxley, and the first page of the story has a slip from the publisher tipped into the margin. Housed in a specially-made, folding cloth chemise and a green morocco-backed slipcase. Some edgewear is present to the thin typing paper, and a marginal tear to page 74 has resulted in slight text loss. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

More details and photos can be sent upon request. size 32 x 24cm ( 13 x 10 inches approx.) Juan Gris (José Victoriano González Pérez), Spanish 1887-1927) Juan Gris, real name José Victoriano González Pérez, was born in Madrid in 1887. His father, Gregorio González, was a well known paper manufacturer. He studied engineering at Madrid's School of Arts and Sciences. He took painting lessons with the minor academic artist José Maria Carbonero . After his fathers death, Gris moved to Paris in 1906 and remained in France for the rest of his life. He had missed military service, so he was unable to return to Spain. He settled in the Bateau Lavoir, a tenement that housed many painters, critics, and poets, and it was there that he met Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Guillaume Apollinaire, Max Jacob, and Maurice Raynal. Gris produced his first cubist paintings in 1911-1912.Gris and his wife spent the summer of 1913 with Picasso at Ceret, and the following year he spent the time spent time with Henri Matisse at Collioure. Gris returned to Paris in 1915 and suffered poverty during World War I. Daniel Henry Kahnweiler, became Gris's dealer in 1920 and wrote the first monograph on the painter in 1929. As a businessman Kahnweiler innovated many new ways of working with artists; and art dealing; - now established practise with art dealers. In 1907 when there were only half a dozen good galleries in Paris, he made contracts with artists to buy all of their work .He held exhibitions of their work and he promoted their work internationally. He encouraged the practise of Artist Ilustrated books, where a contemporary artist illustrates a work of a contemporary writer - he expanded his presentations by bringing together artists, writers and poets to produce their works as a joint project in more than 40 books. In fact as an art and literary publisher he had no equal; being the first to publish works by Max Jacob, Guillaume Apollinaire, André Masson, Gertrude Stein, Pablo Picasso, Juan Gris and many others and in so doing launched many literary careers. Due to Khanweiler helping his career and to counter hs declining health, in 1922, Gris was able to move his studio from the "Bateau Lavoir" to Boulogne-sur-Seine. In 1924 and 1925 Gris spent much of his time writing and lecturing on his views on painting. In 1924 he delivered a paper at the Sorbonne, Les Possibilités de la Peinture (On the Possibilities of Painting), which was later translated and widely published. He died in Paris 1927 at the age of forty from an asthma attack. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        El Habitante Y Su Esperanza

      Editorial Nascimento, Santiago de Chile 1926 - First edition of Nobel Prize winner Pablo Neruda's only novel. Influenced by the work of Rimbaud and Rilke, both of whom Neruda had translated into Spanish, this dreamlike revenge fantasy has an unapologetically poetic quality: in his prologue, Neruda admits: "Yo tengo un concepto dramático de la vida, y romántico; no me corresponde lo que no llega profundamente a mi sensibilidad." While El Habitante y Su Esperanza marked the end, rather than the beginning, of Neruda's career as a writer of fiction, it remains a significant early example of the experimental Latin American novel. Text in Spanish. This copy is inscribed by Neruda to American book dealer Maury Austin Bromsen, who was studying at the University of Chile in the year of presentation. No signed or inscribed first edition copies appear in the auction record: a genuinely scarce title inscribed by Neruda. Small octavo, cream-colored wraps printed in red and green. Wraps soiled with small stain to head of spine, title underlined in blue ink on the front panel, evidence of early repairs to edges and hinges. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

George, Camp Marfa, Texas, April 5, 1927. Purple cloth, gold stamping on front cover and spine, viii, 215 pp., frontis. [photograph of the author's father], preface, illustrated, plates, portraits, folding map bound-in at rear of book, index. BTB 184 says, "This worthwhile account of the Big Bend region during the 19th century is especially valuable because one of Shipman's major sources was her pioneer father, of whom she writes: 'To my father, Captain Pat Dolan, I am especially indebted. He has lived on the Texas frontier for seventy-five years and with remarkable clearness of mind recalls the stirring events of the days gone by.' She also quotes extensively from other pioneers and transients in the region, such as John L. Bullis, commander of Indian Scouts under Mackenzie; A. J. Fairmore and P. Bougad on the El Paso Salt War; Mexican outlaw Victor Ochoa; and Texas Ranger T. T. Cook. The work contains chapters on the early mail routes, the boundary commission, the camel experiment and transportation, the military posts, freighting, civil affairs, Indian Campaigns, the El Paso Salt War, Texas Ranger campaigns, ranching, outlaws, mining, and Mexican revolutionary activities after the turn of the century. This is followed by a section of sketches of early pioneer and ranching families." Six Guns 2006 says, "Scarce." "In a chapter entitled 'Law West of the Pecos' the author deals with the Texas Rangers and lawlessness. In another chapter there is mention of the Lincoln County War, Billy the Kid, John Wesley Hardin, John Selman, and other gunmen of the Southwest." Near fine, bright, square copy.

        Das Totenschiff [The Death Ship]

      Berlin: Buchmeister Verlag, 1926. Early edition. Hardcover. 256pp. Octavo [24 cm] Blue cloth covered boards with a gilt stamped title on the spine, and a gilt stamped boat design on the front cover. Publisher's orange top stain. Very good. The extremities are rubbed, the covers are slightly concave, and the spine is heavily faded. The underlying boards are just beginning to peek through at the corners. The pages are mildly yellowed. Treverton 2, Howard 1b. According to Edward N. Treverton, this edition precedes the fourth state and possibly the third state of Treverton 1. Das Totenschiff was the first book to appear with Traven's name. B. Traven is one of the most mysterious figures of 20th-century literature. His true identity is still subject to much doubt. Although Traven claimed to be an American, his most famous works were first published in Germany during the 1920s and 1930s. Nothing definitive is known about Traven's beginnings. Never the less, Traven's novels have been translated into more than 30 languages and they have sold more than 25 million copies.
