        Satanu. Basen. (Satan. A Poem)

      Prague: The artist (Vrsovice: L.P.) 1926 - Published in an edition of 17 copies, this is a highly dramatic work illustrating the eponymous poem by Carducci (1835-1907), noted poet, historian and politician. SATANU is a magnificent work in large format (59 x 34 cm) with 11 full-page hand-colored woodcuts and 3 smaller linocuts, also in color. Váchal made the paper by hand, created the 1000 printed characters of his own making, and printed it in his studio in the Prague district of Vrsovice. The book is signed in the colophon and numbered by three thumbprints and four fingerprints, making this the seventh copy. Vachal presents us with a series of visual meditations that are some of his strongest, including an abstraction with alchemical symbols and possibly one of the most remarkable busts of the Lord of Darkness in the frontispiece. The artist was a lover of fine literature and poetry, and Carducci provides ample catalytic power in his strong declaration of free thought and personal autonomy for the individual. This book was published in the period of what could be considered the zenith of Váchal’s output (1918-1933) and is one of his undisputed masterworks. This copy is unbound as issued. There is light offsetting as usual on the Title. This book was handmade by Váchal and, as was his general custom, issued in loose sheets to his buyers who would take it as is and have them bound if desired. Váchal did not normally bind his private printing, doing so in very few cases such as with the mammoth ŠUMAVA, and even then only three or four out of the full edition of eleven. Each of Váchal´s private works may be considered unique and differ from the works destined for larger publication which were normally bound and more consistent (“larger” publications usually ran between 75 and 150 copies). Often one finds slight variations between one and another copy, just as his work was subject to spontaneous elements ad libitum. It is unquestionably noted as a book production in the catalogue raisonné. References: JOSEF VÁCHAL, a catalogue raisonné. Prague: Argestea, 1994. Catalogue K20, page 457; illustrated pp. 331-333.

        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]

        RESEARCHES INTO CHINESE SUPERSTITIONS.

      Shanghai: T'Usewei Printing Press, 1914 - 1926. - Two parts in eight volumes (of thirteen published through 1938 ?). Open sewn cloth backed printed boards. Heavily illustrated with hundreds of plates and facsimiles printed via chromolithograph. Extremities of boards worn, a few corners bruised, spine labels largely chipped away, volume 5 shaken, with several gatherings started, endsheets a bit dusty, a bit musty, some marginal tanning; generally a good set, the plates fresh and bright. First edition in English of this mammoth undertaking, translated from the French, with historical and explanatory notes, by M. Kennelly. The First Part (comprised of the first five volume) is devoted to Superstitious Practices; the remaining three volumes, denoted the Second Part, are devoted to the Chinese Pantheon of religious figures. Given the span of years over which the work was published, many of the extant sets are fragmentary or want later volumes. Doré served as a Jesuit missionary for over twenty years in the Kiangsu and Nganhwei provinces. His original French text began publication in 1911 as elements in the VARIÉTÉS SINOLOGIQUES, and the preface to the first volume of this English text projected completion of the French work, in eight volumes, by 1915.

        SOLDIER'S PAY

      Boni & Liveright, New York 1926 - A near-fine copy, square and tight, bound in dark blue cloth with yelllow lettering, bright and complete except for the letter x on the spine, which has slightly worn away. The unrestored original dustwrapper, which has all of the first issue points, is very good with some wear along the edges and a little darkening to the spine, which is unusually nice for this title. There are tape repairs at the folds on the verso and this copy is price-clipped. The book is housed in a custom-made cloth chemise and slipcase. Soldiers' Pay is Faulkner's second book and first novel. The story is of a return home of a wounded aviator to a small town in Georgia following the conclusion of the First World War, escorted by a veteran of the war and a widow whose husband was killed during the conflict. The quality of the work helped to launch the career of, arguably, one of Amerca's greatest authors. : Home [Attributes: First Edition; Hard 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]

        TAMING THE BIG BEND. A HISTORY OF THE EXTREME WESTERN PORTION OF TEXAS FROM FORT CLARK TO EL PASO.

      N.P.: Privately printed, [1926]. - First edition. 8vo. Signed and dated by the author on front fly leaf on 4/5/27. From the library of Captain & Mrs. R. L. 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. An exceptional copy and a fine account of the early Anglo settlement of the Big Bend region. BTB 184. SIX GUNS 2006. HERD 2063. HOWES S422. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
