        The Sun Also Rises

      New York, Charles Scribner's Sons,, 1926. Octavo. Original black cloth, gold paper title label to upper board and spine printed in black. With the pictorial dust jacket. Housed in a black quarter morocco drop down box. Title-page vignette by Cleonike Damianakes. Mild partial browning to the endpapers, bookplate to front pastedown, cloth rather marked in lower portions, spine label a little cracked but a very good copy in the torn and professionally repaired dust jacket silked on the verso. Still a very attractive copy. First edition, first printing, first issue text, in first issue dust jacket, inscribed by Hemingway: "To Cuyler Stevens with all best wishes Ernest Hemingway" and with Stevens's bookplate on the front pastedown. Stevens was in the Princeton class of 1926, and a copy of Winner Take Nothing inscribed to Stevens was in the landmark Goodwin sale. "The Sun Also Rises did not rock the country, but it received a number of hat-in-the-air reviews and it soon became a handbook of conduct for the new generation... how much of the novel seems marvelously fresh as when it first appeared... It is all carved in stone, bigger and truer than life; and it is the work of a man who, having ended his busy term of apprenticeship, was already a master at twenty-six" (Malcolm Cowley, A Second Flowering, pp.70-73). First issue with the misprint "stoppped" for "stopped", p. 181, l. 26. The dust jacket, as called for by Hanneman, incorrectly cites Hemingway's earlier title as In Our Times.

        Ulysses [published in Two Worlds Monthly, ed. Samuel Roth]

      New York: Two Worlds Publishing Company, [July 1926–September, 1927]. 11 volumes, octavo. Original white and beige wrappers printed in red and black. Volume II number 4 with the original wrap-around band. A fine set. Unauthorized printing of 13 bowdlerized episodes from Ulysses by the New York publisher Samuel Roth (1893–1974). The set was originally released as 11 individual instalments containing 13 episodes. It was later published as two bound volumes containing 14 episodes including the final instalment (Vol. III, no. 4) that was never released separately and so is not included here. The publisher Samuel Roth was known for publishing sexually explicit literature and other underground material, including a pirated edition of Lady Chatterley's Lover. His pirating of Ulysses "resulted in considerable public indignation and provoked the 'International Protest' signed by 167 artists and writers and printed in transition I" (Slocum & Cahoon p. 100). Joyce was able to obtain an injunction against Roth, but not until after Two Worlds Monthly had already ceased publication. A fine set, exceptionally scarce in this condition.

      Paris: Shakespeare and Company, 1926. Eighth printing, in which the type was entirely reset in order to address typographical errors found in earlier printings. As noted by Slocum and Cahoon, it incorporated into the text most of the changes indicated on the "Additional corrections" page that had been added to the fourth, fifth, and sixth printings. In all, the text was expanded to 735 pages. This is essentially a second edition; the reset plates were used through the eleventh printing. Joyce's publisher, Sylvia Beach, hired a proofreader from the Daily Mail to comb through the text before it was reset, but Joyce was disappointed with the result. Proofreading Joyce's work was certainly a daunting task, and typos continued to be a problem throughout the book's history of publication. There is much debate over which version of the book is most authoritative and whether certain changes made were actually corrections or well-intentioned corruptions of the text. In blue wrappers with the title and author in white. Some chipping to corners of spine and to fore-edges of wrappers, spine edges slightly rubbed, and a few very short closed tears, else a very good copy.

        Collection of 20 Original Photographs

      This American writer penned many novels in the teens and '20s such as the controversial "Nigger Heaven" (1926) before turning to photography known for portraits of the countless celebrities with whom he circulated; he was closely associated with the Harlem Renaissance; a long-time close friend of Gertrude Stein, she named him her literary executor. Collection of 20 original photographic prints by Van Vechten, all bearing Autograph Notes Signed or identifying marks by Van Vechten on verso. All but one measure 3½" X 5½". Overall fine to near fine. Sixteen prints bear his usual "Photograph by / Carl Van Vechten" blind-embossed stamp near bottom of image; among those depicted are Pearl Baker, Samuel Barber, Leo Coleman, W.E.B. DuBois, George Gershwin, John Gielgud, Sidney Lumet, Norman Mailer, Willard Motley, Gertrude Stein, Van Vechten (photograph of bust), Thomas Wolfe, Alexander Woollcot, one unidentified female (likely actress), one unidentified black male (likely author) and one unidentified black dancer. Four prints do not bear Van Vechten's blind-embossed stamp but were likely printed by him, and all are matte finish sepia-tone: The first a 4" X 6½" print identified by him as "Carl Van Vechten painting by Martha S. Baker 1906 Collection of Carl Van Vechten," the second a 3¼" X 5¼" print of a youthful photograph of Van Vechten, the third a 3¼" X 5¼" print of a painting identified by him as "Rendez-vous de chats poster by C. Monet" and the fourth a 3¼" X 5¼" print of a photograph identified by him as "Mary Garden as Chrysis in Aphrodite Paris -- 1906 Collection of Carl Van Vechten." Eight of these 20 postcard images bear Autograph Notes Signed from Van Vechten, and were mailed between 2 July 1947 and 5 October 1948 to his friend Edward VII Darnell, a young American G.I. whom Van Vechten befriended and corresponded with heavily for several years; Van Vechten called him "VII" or "Seven" because he claimed to have so many friends named Edward he had to number them; he arranged for Darnell to meet Gertrude Stein and Alice Toklas in Paris, among others. All are signed "Carlo," the nickname he used among friends, and are friendly, chatty notes about social events. On those photographs not stamped and mailed Van Vechten identifies the subject on the verso. Collection also includes a mimeographed handbill, 1p, 8½" X 11", New York, NY, 1947 May 22. Near fine. Mimeograph of a typed announcement of The Poetry Center's "Gertrude Stein Memorial Program" featuring Van Vechten as master of ceremonies and various Stein readings, including her last play "Yes Is for a Very Young Man." With original transmittal envelope from Van Vechten sending same to Edward Darnell. Lastly, this archive is accompanied by two black and white photographs of Edward Darnell -- one a 3" X 5" snapshot showing him as a young man in the 1930s, the other a 4½" X 7" candid smiling pose of him in uniform, seated with book in lap.

        Nigger Heaven

      London: Alfred A. Knopf,, 1926. Octavo. Original brown cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. Cloth slightly faded along the edges. A beautiful, clean, and fresh copy in the dust jacket. First UK edition, first impression. Originally published in the US in the same year. Van Vechten's novel of the Harlem renaissance has faced criticism for its title, but the author was in fact a supporter of African American equality and a friend of many Harlem Renaissance intellectuals. The text itself explores the issue of racism through the story of a young couple whose love is thwarted by contemporary social attitudes. A stunning copy, rare found in such nice condition.

      Boston & New York: Houghton Mifflin, 1926.. vii,34pp. Large octavo. Blue cloth, stamped in gilt and blind. Gilt morocco bookplate of Hannah D. Rabinowitz, light offset to endsheet gutters, as usual, otherwise a fine copy, in quite substantially chipped printed dust jacket. Half morocco slipcase and chemise. First edition of the future President's first book, printing the text of a lecture given for the benefit of the Alumni War Memorial Foundation at Milton Academy. Inscribed by Roosevelt on the occasion of publication (and within a month of the delivery of the lecture): "For my son Elliott Roosevelt [/] This copy of his Dad's [/] first book [/] Franklin D. Roosevelt [/] June 1926," and signed again by him on the title-page. Elliott (1910-1990) was the fourth of six Roosevelt children, and was acknowledged as Eleanor's favorite among them. His future career included military service, involvement in aircraft procurement (including a difficult issue involving his association with Hughes Aircraft), and roles as author, rancher, radio station owner and Mayor of Miami Beach. Although this book was published in a modest edition of only a thousand copies, it took a number of years for the edition to be exhausted. Laid in is a small clipping from the NYTBR about Elliott's sale of books from the Hyde Park library to Rosenbach, mentioning this book in particular. A highly desirable copy with a very personal association.

Isabel was P. C. Wren's second wife, and had previously been married to Cyril Graham Smith, a civil engineer with the Indian educational service at Poona. In 1927 Smith filed for divorce, citing Wren as co-respondent. 'Madge & Peter' were Mr. & Mrs. A. H. Parkes. (Alfred Herbert Parkes, who disliked his baptismal name, was customarily called 'Peter' by family and friends). The Parkes met the Wrens on a cruise, probably in 1927, and began a long-standing friendship. This copy of Beau Geste, Wren's most famous book, is the first of many volumes the author presented to the family over the years - usually to their son Francis Patrick, who was Wren's godson.

        Gouache aquarellée signée Gino Starace pour la couverture de « Riches et Pauvres ? La Revanche des humbles » de Charles Mérouvel

      Arthème Fayard 1926 Gouache aquarellée signée Gino Starace pour la couverture de « Riches et Pauvres ? La Revanche des humbles » de Charles Mérouvel, n°168 du Livre Populaire, Arthème Fayard, avril 1926. Exécutée sur un carton Canson lavis A à grain satiné de format 17 x 25 cm (marges comprises ; le dessin fait 15 x 24), signées par l'artiste. La cartouche du titre fait partie du dessin original ; un macaron avec le prix de vente est collé. Un papier calque monté sur le haut du canson vient protéger le dessin. Superbe composition de Starace, présentant une scène de forte intensité dramatique d'un classique du mélodrame populaire. Magnifique état. Giocchino Starace (1859 ? 1950), dit Gino Starace, fut le célèbre illustrateur de la collection du « Livre Populaire » des éditions Arthème Fayard, il en fit un nombre impressionnant de couvertures, choisissant très souvent une scène majeure, violente, étrange, émouvante, du roman, ou bien un portrait saisi dans un sentiment de colère, d'effarement, de terreur. Starace, dit-on, lisait souvent les textes pour choisir la scène qu'il allait composer. Natif de Naples, ce dessinateur italien a dominé presque un demi-siècle de littérature populaire française, grâce à une technique classique irréprochable au service des débordements du genre. Dans Lisibilité, emphase, narrativité (in Tapis Franc n°1, 1988), Daniel Couégnas montre que Starace perçut « la nécessité vitale qui commandait que l'illustration de couverture, cette affiche publicitaire en réduction fût saisie instantanément, appréhendée, déchiffrée de manière univoque par le regard afin de provoquer désir ou curiosité, conditions nécessaires d'une lecture ultérieure du roman ». Il précise que « la force de Starace, c'est sa capacité de synthétiser en une scène les stéréotypes qui renvoient immédiatement le lecteur moyen, médiocrement instruit, à un déjà-lu, ou un déjà-vu, tant historique que dramatique ou psychologique. » Son classicisme marié aux excès mélodramatiques, le choix de couleurs vives, la dynamique du mouvement et l'emphase constituent sa griffe qui culmine avec la folie surréaliste de la série à 65 centimes des Fantômas de Pierre Souvestre et Marcel Allain. Relevons aussi de grands textes de Gaston Leroux (Chéri-Bibi), les Pardaillan de Michel Zévaco, la saga de Rocambole de Ponson du Terrail, Naz-en-l'Air de Souvestre et Allain Comme neuf couverture rigide Edition originale Signé par l'auteur
