        The Sun Also Rises.

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1926 - First edition, first issue of the first printing, with the misprint ("stoppped") on page 181 line 26, in the first issue dust jacket with the misprint on the front panel ("In Our Times" vs. "In Our Time"). Octavo, original black cloth. A near fine copy with a bookplate to the inside pastedown in a very good first issue dust jacket, which has had professional restoration, mostly in strengthening the paper and with a small bit of paper replacement at the upper front flap fold. The Annette Campbell-White copy brought $120,000 at Sotheby's in 2007. The Sun Also Rises was published by Scribner's in 1926, and a year later in the United Kingdom by Jonathan Cape under the title Fiesta. Though it initially received mixed reviews, it is now "recognized as Hemingway's greatest work" (Meyers, 1985). The fictional plot depicts a love story between war-wounded and impotent Jake Barnes and the promiscuous divorcée Lady Brett Ashley, but the novel is a roman à clef; the characters are based on real people and the action is based on real events. Hemingway proposes that the "Lost Generation," considered to have been decadent, dissolute and irretrievably damaged by World War I, was resilient and strong. Naturally, themes of love, death, renewal in nature, and the nature of masculinity are heavily investigated. For example, the characters engage in bull-fighting, which is presented as an idealized drama: The matador faces death and, in so doing, creates a moment of existential nothingness, broken when he vanquishes the possibility of death by killing the bull (Stoltzfus, 2005). The Sun Also Rises is seen as an iconic modernist novel for future generations (Mellow, 1992), although it has been emphasized that Hemingway was not philosophically a modernist (Reynolds, 1990). "The Sun Also Rises is Hemingway's masterpiece - one of them, anyway - and no matter how many times you've read it or how you feel about the manners and morals of the characters, you won't be able to resist its spell. This is a classic that really does live up to its reputation" (David Laskin). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Cubical City. (First and Only Novel)

      Putnam's Sons., New York 1926 - A very handsome copy bound in finely woven gleaming black cloth stamped brightly in gilt on the front boards and on the spine. Splendidly bright and complete gilt lettering. Charming endpapers with stylized cityscape of New York against clouds and a blue sky. Very clean and tight throughout; with a tender rear hinge. Two corners lightly bumped; and a small pinhole at the center of the front hinge; otherwise, a splendid copy. With red top-staining. In the complete original pictorial dustjacket printed on textured paper with the original price of $2.00 at the bottom of the inside front flap. The jacket features an artistic rendering of the Manhattan skyline of 1926. There is slight darkening to the spine and one light scuff mark; and light edge-rubbing. With a 1.5" closed tear at the top of the rear flap. Light chipping and wear to the top and bottom of the spine ends as well as the corners. Very scarce in a complete dust jacket. "Occasionally there appears a first novel which refuses to fit into any of the stock descriptive categories that the publisher usually finds serviceable. Such a novel is "The Cubical City," an intense, vital story of Manhattan which follows none of the conventional fiction lines. Miss Flanner has created for herself a stylistic idiom that is highly individual, and complete originality marks the unfolding of her narrative." (Inside front flap) Janet Flanner (March 13, 1892 – November 7, 1978) was an American writer and journalist who served as the Paris correspondent of The New Yorker magazine from 1925 until she retired in 1975. She wrote under the pen name "Genêt". She also published a single novel, The Cubical City, set in New York City.In September 1925 Flanner published her first "Letter from Paris" in The New Yorker, launched the previous February, starting a professional association that lasted for five decades. She wrote under the pen name "Genêt". Flanner had first come to the attention of editor Harold Ross through his first wife, Jane Grant, who was a friend of Flanner's from the Lucy Stone League, an organization that fought for women to preserve their maiden names after marriage, in the manner of Lucy Stone. Flanner joined the group in 1921. Ross famously thought "Genêt" was French for "Janet".Flanner was a prominent member of the American expatriate community which included Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, John Dos Passos, e. e. cummings, Hart Crane, Djuna Barnes, Ezra Pound, and Gertrude Stein– the world of the Lost Generation and Les Deux Magots. While in Paris she became very close friends with Gertrude Stein and her lover, Alice B. Toklas. In 1932 she fell in love with Noel Haskins Murphy, a singer from a village just outside Paris, and had a short-lived romance. This did not affect her relationship with Solano.She played a crucial role in introducing her contemporaries to new artists in Paris, including Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Henri Matisse, André Gide, Jean Cocteau, and the Ballets Russes, as well as crime passionel and vernissage, the triumphant crossing of the Atlantic Ocean by Charles Lindbergh and the depravities of the Stavisky Affair.Her prose style has since come to epitomise the "New Yorker style"– its influence can be seen decades later in the prose of Bruce Chatwin.

        Tess of the D'Urbervilles [with the inscribed visiting cards of Thomas and Florence Hardy laid in]

      London: Macmillan and Co. Ltd, 1926 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Signed by Author(s). First Thus. [frontispiece] xiv, pp 1-508. [folding Wessex map to rear] A presentation copy of the limited edition of Hardy's tragic novel, Tess of the D'Urbervilles, inscribed by his second wife, Florence Hardy with the couple's visiting cards laid in. The books is bound in the original blue buckram over bevel-edges boards with top edge gilt and gilt spine lettering. The spine is faded. Florence Hardy has written on the first blank to an unknown recipient: 'With every good wish from Mr & Mrs Thomas Hardy. November 1927'. Laid in are the visiting cards for both Thomas Hardy and his wife. The author's card conforms to the usual late Victorian pattern and dimensions of 3x1.5 inches with Hardy's London Club, The Athenaeum, and Max Gate addresses printed in the lower corners and written above his name: 'Good wishes, from' in a contemporary hand that seems likely to be that of Hardy's first wife, Emma Hardy, but is certainly not Florence Hardy's hand nor, apparently, the author's own. Florence Hardy's visiting hand accompanies that of her husband and, interestingly, is about twice the size of his card with her Max Gate address only and, written in her hand, 'With good wishes' below her printed married name. The 'h' of 'wishes' displays her characteristic trailing approach to the letter that is also displayed in the book's inscription. This little collection of cards and inscribed book, no doubt put together by a near contemporary of Hardy, is a testament to the celebrity status that Hardy possessed as an author during his last two decades.

        Turandot: Dramma Lirico in Tre Atti e Cinque Quadri...di G. Adami e R. Simoni; [with] Manuscript Musical Autograph Sheet From Turandot

      Milan: G. Ricordi & Co., 1926. 4to, (14), 398 pp. Quarter beige cloth, printed paper over boards. Some wear at extremities of fragile boards. Decorative endpapers. Front hinge cracked. The manuscript autograph sheet is a single folio leaf measuring 12 x 13-inches. Music notation penciled on both sides. A few short and scattered tears not affecting the text. Both housed in recent and matching quarter morocco clamshell boxes. First Italian edition. An important pair of items from PucciniÕs final opera. Giacomo Puccini died 29 November 1924 from complications associated with cancer surgery, roughly one year after his diagnosis; yet Turandot was incomplete and finished later, with considerable dispute over the quality of his work, by Franco Alfano as commissioned by Toscanini. The present manuscript autograph leaf contains nine bars of boldly written notational shorthand, three of which Puccini has crossed out for unknown reasons, especially notable because Ã’it is not generally realized that Puccini was an inveterate reviser, constantly changing and improving his work right up until the time of his death..Ó (Hopkinson, introduction). The librettists Guiseppe Adami and Renato Simoni Ã’based their libretto on Carlo GozziÕs 4th dramatic Fable, Turandotte...[and] Puccini had become familiar with this work through Andrea MalfeiÕs Italian translation of Friedrich SchillerÕs German adaptation of the originalÓ (Fairtile in Giacomo Puccini: A Guide to Research).
