        Ladonka: stikhi [The Amulet: poems]

      Belgrade: Russkaia tipografiia, izd. Gl. Pravleniia O-va Gallipoliitsev, 1926. Octavo (22.7 × 15.5 cm). Original pictorial wrappers by L. Kovalevskaia; 47, [1] pp. Frontis portrait of Savin and illustrations throughout by Kovalevskaia. Wrappers beginning to detach; upper spine extremity split (ca. 6 cm.); still a good or better copy. First edition of Ivan Savin's only collection of poetry. Ivan Savin (1899-1927), known by the last name Savolain prior to emigration, was a Russian writer and part of the first wave of white Russian emigres. Savin and his family suffered a tragic fate: nearly all of his family died during the Russian civil war and Savin was taken prisoner by the Red Army while serving in Crimea, somehow managing to escape execution. In 1922, he emigrated to Finland where he began to focus on journalism, prose, and poetry, contributing to emigre publications in Berlin, Riga, and Belgrade, as well as publishing stories, poems and essays in the Helsinki journal "Russkie vesti". His only collection of poetry, "Ladonka," published in Belgrade a year before his death, features poems dedicated to the camp of the White army in Gallipoli, Turkey. Much of his literary work is autobiographical and expresses his love for pre-revolutionary Russia; he viewed the Russian revolution as a tragic historical event. The poet Kasatkin-Rostovskii reviewed "Ladonka" in 1926, writing that Savin's poems "need to be experienced like a cry from the heart. In a small book, in vivid and beautiful poems, the soul of one who volunteered to fight the enslavers of Russia is expressed." For his use of features of romanticism, his impressionistic style, and his imagery and symbolism, Savin has sometimes been compared to Blok and Gumilev. He was called by critics the "poet of the white ideal." He died followed complications from appendicitis in 1927. His poetry was admired particularly by Kuprin and Bunin, who, after Savin's death, praised his poems for their "total uniqueness and pathos" as well as the "beauty and strength of their general tone". After the poet's death, his work remained popular amongst Russian emigres, including in displaced persons camps during WWII. A second supplemented edition of Ladonka was published in the US in 1956. OCLC shows copies at Harvard, Stanford Columbia, the Hoover Institute, Purdue, Illinois, Kansas, Syracuse universities, Amherst College, the University of Melbourne, Waseda University, BCU Dorigny, NEBIS Zurich, Staatsbibliothek Berlin, Bayerische Staatsbibliothek [held by 16 OCLC libraries].

        The British Gazette.

      His Majesty's Stationary Office, May 5 - May 13. 1926 - 8 issues. A complete set of the British Gazette newspaper. All in very good condition, folded, with some toning as expected with newsprint. Overall an exceptionally good set, housed in a leather-spined clamshell box with gilt titles to spine. During the the General Strike of 1926 Churchill edited this paper, which was initiated to combat the closing-down of the newspaper offices. It was published from the Daily Telegraph building in Fleet Street, where it was also printed by a volunteer staff. The British Gazette ran for eight issues between 5 May and 13 May excluding Sunday 9 May. Its circulation figures are: 232,000; 507,000; 655,000; 836,000; 1,801,400; and 2,209,000. The sales for the last issue were well in excess of the 2,000,000 mark. It is currently thought that most of the paper was written by Churchill himself. In the final issue, the article 'The Birth and Life of the British Gazette' closes with the most Churchillian turn of phrase: 'It becomes a memory; but it remains a monument'.

        [HOW TO SHOOT NEWSREEL] Kinokhronika i kak ee snimat' [i.e. Newsreel and How to Shoot It]

      Moscow: Kinopechat', 1926. 75 pp.: ill. 17x13 cm. In original photomontage wrappers. Some wear of the wrappers, loss of the small piece of the rear cover, Soviet bookshop's ink stamp on the rear cover, very rare foxing in text, otherwise very good. Rare. First edition of the second book. One of 10000 copies. Despite a general propaganda agenda of the book (newsreel as a weapon of agitation and an ideology form) it presents interesting materials on this specific type of cinema - newsreel. It accompanied by photographs: shooting of Battleship Potyomkin, shooting of Red Square during military parade, 'subbotnik' in 1920, Red Army in 1918, American and English shots - all taken from newsreel. Grigory Moiseevich Boltiansky (1885-1953), Soviet film historian, director, professor, founder of the revolutionary newsreel and one of the founders of Soviet cinematography. He was teaching at VGIK since 1931 where he organized newsreel department. He also founded the first museum of cinema in 1926 under State Academy of Artistic Sciences (both were destroyed in 1932 when all art groups were banned). Interesting that the museum was never reopened (materials were saved in different collections) probably because the history and history of cinema was rewritten every ten years so there was no need in archives, in newsreel, in historic re-evaluation. In the beginning author gives a brief history on first newsreels (western ''bourgeois'' newsreel 'hiding class contradictions'), modern news cinema and their technical advancement. The author continues with Russian pre-Revolutionary state of newsreel (the beginning of regular shows was in 1912). It's ironic how he states that ''Soviet newsreel put forward the true creator of history - the masses instead of the cult of the personality of the bourgeois chronicle''. Author briefly describes current state of Soviet newsreel (poor), and moves on to influence which newsreel had on feature films (e.g. Battleship Potiomkin) and also vice versa (new methods in newsreel which came from films are close-ups, close details, cutaways, etc.). He also analyses the appearance of a new genre - agitka (short propaganda chronicle). Boltiansky mentions the Kinoks ('kino-oki', i.e. cinema-eyes) which was a collective of Soviet filmmakers in 1920s Russia, based most notably around famous Dziga Vertov. Even though author calls their art theories 'formal sectarianism' he values their practical achievements in newsreel (but he considers it to be more of feature than documentary nature). Next part dedicated to technical details of newsreel: work specialty (three types of newsreel workers - producer, editor and cameraman, additionally - gaffer), equipment, shooting plan and its two phases - preparational and technical, editing, captions (being one of the most important parts of the whole process). Last part is about amateur film chronicles - types of cameras (with photographs), what and how to shoot, what to do with material, etc. Overall, an interesting piece with reference to such important signs of an era like the Kinoks and agitka. Worldcat locates paper copies in MOMA and University of Southern California.

        Seven Pillars of Wisdom A Triumph

      One of nine proof copies of the 1926 "Cranwell" or "Subscribers" edition, this copy almost certainly copy No. 8 according to Lawrence's account, from which the first American edition of 22 copies was set in type. With many wood-engraved initial letters and 13 of the original illustrations in the text, including pasted-in India paper proofs of, at page 339 a reproduction of a drawing, possibly by Eric Kennington and evidently an abandoned version of The Prophet and, at page 564 The Glory of a young Man by Kennington. The pictorial endpapers by Kennington are present as India paper proofs partially pasted down on to endpapers. Irregular collation, with many single leaves pasted on to neighbouring pages, and four pages present as pasted-on sheets of proofing paper lacking the initial letters. The preliminaries, up to the first page of text, were evidently unbound sheets when the book was inscribed, and have been sewn later. Folio, original plain wrappers, uncut. Wrappers with signs of handling including a two inch tear, without loss, to the spine, a one inch square section lacking from the gutter of the upper cover, and other slight wear to the extremities.

        North of Boston, inscribed by Frost with six lines of verse from The Black Cottage and dated April 1927

      New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1926. Later printing. Hardcover. This copy of the author's second book is inscribed with six lines verse from his poem The Black Cottage. The nine-line inscription inked on the front free endpaper reads: “For dear me why abandon a belief | Merely because it ceases to be true. | Cling to it long enough and not a doubt | It will turn true again, for so it goes. | Most of the change we think we see in life | Is due to truths being in and out of favor. (p.54 | Robert Frost | For Lesley Taylor | April 1927”. This is a remarkably relevant and timely inscription in the emerging “post-truth” era of “alternate facts” from the poet who read at President Kennedy's inauguration more than half a century ago. When first published in 1914, North of Boston was swiftly hailed by important reviews, bolstering Frost's newly minted literary reputation and precipitating his return to the United States from England, where his first two books were published. This inscribed copy is the November 1926 printing of the second edition. Condition is good plus. The publisher's quarter green cloth binding over green paper-covered boards remains square and tight. We note wear to the edges of the fragile, paper-covered boards, but the chief flaw of the binding is 4 cm split to the cloth, angling from the lower rear hinge to the edge of the lower spine. Though it does not threaten binding integrity, this aesthetic flaw prevents our grading condition as “very good” or better. The contents show moderate age-toning, most evident to the untrimmed fore edges, and light spotting, primarily confined to the half-title and frontispiece verso. The sole previous ownership mark is the decorative bookplate of “Leslie Taylor” affixed to the front pastedown – ostensibly the inscription recipient, whose name Frost apparently misspelled. Iconic American poet and four-time Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Lee Frost (1874-1963), the quintessential poetic voice of New England, was actually born in San Francisco and first published in England. When Frost was eleven, his newly widowed mother moved east to Salem, New Hampshire, to resume a teaching career. There Frost swiftly found his poetic voice, infused by New England scenes and sensibilities. Promising as both a student and writer, Frost nonetheless dropped out of both Dartmouth and Harvard, supporting himself and a young family by teaching and farming. Ironically, it was a 1912 move to England with his wife and children – “the place to be poor and to write poems” – that finally catalyzed his recognition as a noteworthy American poet. The manuscript of A Boy's Will was completed in England and published by David Nutt in 1913. “Yeats pronounced the poetry “the best written in America for some time” and Frost received “two extraordinary tributes in the Nation and the Chicago Dial and a superb review in the Academy.” (ANB) A convocation of critical recognition, introduction to other writers, and creative energy supported the English publication of Frost's second book, North of Boston, in 1914, after which “Frost's reputation as a leading poet had been firmly established in England, and Henry Holt of New York had agreed to publish his books in America.” Accolades met his return to America at the end of 1914 and by 1917 a move to Amherst “launched him on the twofold career he would lead for the rest of his life: teaching whatever “subjects” he pleased at a congenial college… and “barding around,” his term for “saying” poems in a conversational performance.” (ANB) By 1924, two years before this inscribed copy was published, Frost won the first of his eventual four Pulitzer Prizes for poetry (1931, 1937, and 1943). Frost spent the final decade and a half of his life as “the most highly esteemed American poet of the twentieth century” with a host of academic and civic honors to his credit. Two years before his death he became the first poet to read in the program of a U.S. Presidential inauguration (Kennedy, January 1961).

        The Satyricon of T. Petronius Arbiter. Burnaby's translation, 1694; with an introduction by C. K. Scott Moncrieff ; ornamented by Martin Travers.

      1926 - Simpkin, Marshall, Hamilton, Kent & Co. [c.1926]. 8vo., original blue cloth, lettered in gilt on spine (gilt however very dulled). With ornaments by Martin Travers. Slight rubbing to extremities otherwise a very good copy (without dust wrapper). Abbey Classics Series (No. 18). From the library of Christopher Isherwood with his ownership signature dated Oxford Dec 1926. The parallels between Isherwood and Petronius are compelling. The protagonist of A Single Man, Isherwood's day-in-the-life of a late-middle-aged college professor grieving the loss of his longtime lover, has been described as "the first forthright, non-neurotic, unapologetic gay character the literary world had seen since Petronius". Isherwood's earlier documentation of the Weimar Republic in his Berlin Stories mirrors the moral decline of Nero's Rome portrayed in the Satyricon. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Seven Pillars of Wisdom. A Triumph

      1926 - One of nine proof copies of the 1926 ?Cranwell? or ?Subscribers? edition, this copy almost certainly copy No. 8 according to Lawrence's account, from which the first American edition of 22 copies was set in type. With many wood-engraved initial letters and 13 of the original illustrations in the text, including pasted-in India paper proofs of, at page 339 a reproduction of a drawing, possibly by Eric Kennington and evidently an abandoned version of The Prophet and, at page 564 The Glory of a young Man by Kennington. The pictorial endpapers by Kennington are present as India paper proofs partially pasted down on to endpapers. Irregular collation, with many single leaves pasted on to neighbouring pages, and four pages present as pasted-on sheets of proofing paper lacking the initial letters. The preliminaries, up to the first page of text, were evidently unbound sheets when the book was inscribed, and have been sewn later. Folio, original plain wrappers, uncut. Wrappers with signs of handling including a two inch tear, without loss, to the spine, a one inch square section lacking from the gutter of the upper cover, and other slight wear to the extremities. Some occasional foxing to the text, and signs of use consistent with having been used as setting-copy. Fine blue morocco case. [London, Privately Printed. One of the earliest copies known, with Lawrence's splendid presentation inscription to his literary agent, Raymond Savage. The inscription is a virtual letter, covering the entire endpaper and gives a full (although apparently inaccurate) description of the state of production of Seven Pillars. In addition Lawrence has added his name (TE ?Lawrence?) on the title page, with a note at the foot 'No: this was a sort of joke. The subscribers' copies will all be initialled ?TES? of course, & dated for the day of publication.'According to Lawrence's account of the publication and distribution of the 1926 edition of Seven Pillars (see Texas Quarterly Vol. 5 No. 3, 1956) there were nine proof copies bound up in advance of the final issue. Although the inscription in the present copy says ?Pike made me up two sets of spoiled proofs, in advance of the finished thing; and stitched 'em up, to make corrections etc. easier for me. . .?, Lawrence then goes on to describe a further copy. Four of the proof copies are now located: the present copy; a copy without preliminaries and title page inscribed and given to the College Library at Cranwell (NPG 222); a copy extensively edited by Lawrence and sent to George Doran for the American Revolt in the Desert (University of Texas); a further copy bearing the same revisions copied out by two aircraftsmen and sent to Cape for setting the English Revolt (NPG 243). The differences between the proof copies and the subscribers copies are described by Lawrence in the inscription: ?There are two variants in this, from the final edition as it will be sent to subscribers: but they are not important things. The text is complete: but there are missing the little abstracts of the several books which (printed in red & black) are to introduce the several editions. However, in all essentials, this is the complete text . . .? These proof copies were sent out after Lawrence had removed the two libellous passages, and it is these pages which are present here as pasted-on sheets. In 1926 the law offered little protection from American piracies of books published in London, and to minimize this problem ?Savage had arranged that the American copyright edition of Seven Pillars should be set up and printed by George H. Doran who was publishing the Cape abridgement in New York.? [Wilson, p. 773]. Thus it seems most likely that the two references in the inscription, ?You may find it useful for copyrighting? and ?if you copyright this, good enough? refer to Savage sending this copy to Doran, that the other copy sent to Doran was the heavily amended copy for Revolt.

        Ein Anatomischer Totentanz Unter Mitwirkung von Kunstmaler Fritz Stell

      Munich: Bergmann, 1926. FIRST EDITION. Fine. 4to. Original beige half-cloth over eggplant-colored boards. 27, (1) pp. With 50 b/w photographic plates, a few of which are photographs of respective paintings by Fritz Stell. Preserved in a fine protective case. A BEAUTIFUL COPY. Very scarce and -- quite frankly -- amazing "memento mori," purported to be in the service of medicine, but we remain unconvinced. There are 50 photographic plates on 25 double-spread pages. Each opposing plate depicts the same subject, i.e. a man or a woman in an artistic pose; on one side we see the nude figure, and on the other their skeletal equivalent in the identical pose. The juxtapositions are similtaneously disquieting and compelling and MUST BE SEEN to be fully appreciated. Albert Hasselwander (1877-1954), was an anatomist and radiologist who published an atlas of X-ray images of the human body during the same year, considered these artfully posed life / death scenes to be a modern anatomical interpretation of the medieval "Dance of Death." We have been looking for a fine copy of this book since 2006. This one is in the freshest possible state.

        "AN OLD WOMAN" MENNONITE WOMAN, PENNSYLVANIA

      1926. Ulmann, Doris. Unique oil pigment print photograph, image size 8 x 6 in. [20.3 x 15.2 cm.] mounted to tissue using glassine tape and then tipped to 11 x 14 inch board. SIGNED in pencil beneath the image by the photographer; titled "An Old Woman" and signed again on the blank reverse of the board. Presented in a 16 x 20 inch archival window-mat. In fine condition. Doris Ulmann (1882-1934), although prolific, the majority of her photographs are unique prints and of these, most are left unsigned. As was her practice, Doris Ulmann only signed those photographs she exhibited or intended to exhibit. From 1917 through 1925, Doris Ulmann created approximately 150 oil pigment prints. Given the extreme difficulty in obtaining success with this process, the prints are unique monotypes. The subtle details visible in the deep shadows of this print exhibit a technical mastery of both the exposure and of the pigment process. This print is reproduced as Figure 1, p. xx in Philip Walker Jacobs' excellent THE LIFE AND PHOTOGRAPHY OF DORIS ULMANN. The University of Kentucky Press, 2001. For a detailed description of Ulmann's oil print process and method of presentation, see the above reference, p. 276 -77.
