      Paris: Contact Editions. 1926. First Edition, Inscribed by the author on the ffe, "H. D. / London / 1926." Also inscribed in another hand, "Marcella Burke 1927 - Unity Degues gave / this to me - it is the copy / H. D. sent her." 8vo; (vi), 338pp; original buff printed wrappers in original glassine, spine chipped at both ends about 1/4", corners bumped, a few closed tears, some chipping and darkening to glassine which has closed tear at lower front hinge about 3", a bit of age-toning to page edges, about very good. Printed by masterprinter, Henri Darantiere in Paris for Robert McAlmon&#39;s Contact Editions in 1926, this was the first of McAlmon&#39;s publications that did not have problems with American censorship. Still, McAlmon later sold 700 copies of the sheets to Houghton, Mifflin that year. The American publisher subsequently brought out a hard-cover edition of the author&#39;s first book of prose at the end of 1926. McAlmon&#39;s publishing venture was funded by his father-in-law, Sir John Ellerman, a wealthy Englishman. His was a marriage of convenience as Winifred Ellerman [Bryher] was living with H.D.& Hilda Doolittle (1886-1961), poet and prose writer, experimented with new lyric, mythic, and mystical forms. This three-part story sequence, PALIMPSEST, is dedicated to Bryher, who was H. D. &#39;s most significant companion in her most mature years. "In her commentary [on Euripides&#39;s ION], modern life is seen as at a turning point, and an Athena-like new world woman is predicted...H. D.&#39;s research into and uses of mythological, astrological and psychological sources of identity for women has made her an important poet for women..." - NAW. Women&#39;s Writing in the United States, pp. 379-381. NAW, Modern Period, pp. 198-201. Ford, Published in Paris, pp. 34-94. <br>See an <A HREF= >Image.</A><br>

        Nigger Heaven

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1926. First Edition. Van Vechten&#39;s enduring and controversial fictional chronicle of the Harlem Renaissance, drawing upon his close friendships with such figures as Wallace Thurman, Langston Hughes, and Nella Larsen. Though the book went into at least a dozen printings in the Twenties, it is notoriously difficult to find any copy retaining the fragile dustwrapper. This example, though imperfect, is among the best we have seen. HANNA 3616. COAN p.192. Octavo (19cm). Brown, ribbed cloth stamped in purple on spine and front cover; dustjacket; 286pp. Deep blue top-stain. Faint, almost imperceptible, spotting to edge of rear board, else a tight, bright copy, very Near Fine, with top-stain slightly faded.

      Verseau/Mermod, (Lausanne) 20.10.1926. - Broché 37 x 27, couverture imprimée rempliée en deux couleurs. Nickel, non coupé. Splendide exemplaire du tirage en deuxième papier (pour vivre heureux oubliez le premier) avec les signatures de Ramuz et Auberjonois à la justification - nous irions jusqu'à dire que la numérotation en incombe au second. A signaler, l'impression de cet ouvrage par les soins du Verseau, mentionné en page de titre tandis que Mermod figure à la couverture, ce qui en rend l'attribution à un seul éditeur bien ennuyeuse; dans le doute nous conserverons les deux bien qu'il ne semble pas s'agir d'une co-édition.Ce qui compte, c'est que c'est une magnifique réussite, tant du côté typographique qu'iconographique; les lithographies d'Auberjonois rayonnent dans un format somptueux, une fois n'est pas coutume. que ne lui a-t-on ailleurs laissé l'espace dans lequel il ne se trouve pas à l'étroit et donne alors le meilleur de lui-même ? Il existe de mystérieuses suites, sans texte, sous portefeuille, de ces sept dessins.[Bringolf 26a] Édition en partie originale.

        Edmond Gilliard *

      Sans lieu (1926). - Dessin original à la mine de plomb 20 x 14, non signé, sous cadre à baguette de bois naturel. Beau portrait de l'écrivain, très travaillé, le figurant doux et pensif, très zen. Une lithographie originale tirée de cette composition sera recyclée en frontispice pour l'édition de luxe "Du pouvoir des vaudois" paru en 1926 au Verseau.Signalons enfin qu'à côté de tout une série de variantes de dessins originaux recueillis dans un cahier, ce motif est le plus proche de celui reproduit dans l'ouvrage pré cité; il est à noter que l'estampe évoque plutôt un état intermédiaire entre l'esquisse et le croquis aboutit tandis que notre portrait est très affiné et beaucoup nuancé, ce qui provient en partie du matériau utilisé car si la lithographie rappelle le trait gras du fusain, notre composition bénéficie d'un travail délicat à l'aide de crayons de mines de duretés différentes.Ce portrait est sans doute parmi les plus beaux jamais réalisés de l'écrivain, qui ne serait pas indigne de concurrencer certains de ceux d'Auberjonois.

        TYPED LETTER SIGNED (TLS). 1 1/2 pages on letter-size paper (with 1 1/2 inches trimmed from bottom), signed in black ink, "F. B. Long, Jr.", with five-line handwritten postscript, dated 8 October 1929, to "Dear Mr. Derleth" [August Derleth]

      Faint fold creases and minor edge nicks, very good overall. (#116740). Long&#39;s first letter to Derleth, written in reply to one from Derleth. As Long mentions here, he had heard about Derleth from H. P. Lovecraft (whom he had known at this point for almost ten years; he would remain one of HPL&#39;s best friends) and says here that he had occasionally thought of writing him "but during the past few months I&#39;ve been too morbidly depressed to enter into an extended correspondence with anyone." Promising to "discuss the tales you mention at length in a few days" -- tales by Long? by Derleth? by others? -- he mentions the demands of other work, including "a series of articles that I very unwisely agreed to undertake for a vile subway magazine on a commission basis." In his postscript he agrees to send Derleth a copy of his book, THE MAN FROM GENOA, a 31-page collection of poems published in 1926 by Paul Cook in Athol, Mass. (famous also as the publisher, or at least printer, of Lovecraft&#39;s THE SHUNNED HOUSE). "I would gladly give you a copy, but I still owe the publisher a substantial commission on all sales. It retails for a 1.25 -- but you may merely send me a dollar." "The writing style is both formless and inflated, very much the work of a young man still looking for his own voice and under the influence of Lovecraft, who, at this point, tended towards a stilted tone in his letters. Nevertheless, an interesting document by one of the more important spokes in the Lovecraft circle. If HPL was its center, then Derleth, in his later capacity as publisher at Arkham House, formed its circumference." - Robert Eldridge.
