        Sept morceaux et sept dessins *

      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. L'un des 55 exemplaires numérotés (9) et signés sur papier Japon (dont 15 nominatifs avec double suite) outre 10 Chine, 25 papier journal et 200 Hollande.

        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'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's best friends) and says here that he had occasionally thought of writing him "but during the past few months I'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'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.

      London: H. F. and G. Witherby, 1926. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original green cloth --lacking the scarce dust jacket, SIGNED BY HENRY DARLEY (mildly askew, spine ends pushed, modest rubbing to corners, intermittent foxing to text, a few small marginal tears with some associated creasing near the end of the volume); Major Henry Darley's account of his time spent in Abyssinia, an area then still under feudal-style rule, in which slavey still was practiced and raids to acquire slaves continued. Darley, and adventurer and explorer, planned to enter Abyssinia by a route never before traversed by a white party and, indeed, became the first European to get through to Addis Ababa from Uganda. The book is complete with 2 maps (one folding), 9 half-tone illustrations (one of which may have been reinserted and tipped in), and the errata slip on page xiii. This copy contains a PRESENTATION INSCRIPTION pasted to the front pastedown reading: "To Capt. Darvill / from / the Author / Henry Darley / Jan / 33. / Lupa diggings / Tanganyika". [There was an area of Tanzania known as the Lupa Goldfields.] Also, to the front free endpaper is tipped a one-page AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED from Henry Darley to Captain Darvill, the first textual line of which reads "You quite astonished me" and going on to briefly mention gold and a potential trip "if there is any truth in the reported gold [alluvial?] find somewhere between Lindi & Kilwa [but?] further up country". (As the presentation inscription refers to the Lupa diggings and the letter to a potential gold find, Darley clearly was interested in more than slave raiding. In fact, he spent years trading in ivory on the borders of the Sudan and Kenya.) A Very Good copy of a quite scarce book by this noted British explorer and adventurer [WorldCat shows only copies of the 1935 American edition], reviewed and commented upon in numerous major publications at the time of its publishing, with a RARE PRESENTATION INSCRIPTION from the author, TOGETHER WITH A RARE AND RELEVANT AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED about a search for gold. RARE.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED (ALS) Regarding DEATH COMES FOR THE ARCHBISHOP

      Jaffrey [NH]. Letter. Usual creases. Near Fine. Superb one-page letter on Cather's monogrammed printed stationery dated 15 October [1926] and SIGNED by Cather at the conclusion. Addressed to Dr. [Henry Goddard] Leach, editor of THE FORUM, regarding the first installment of her best-known work, DEATH COMES FOR THE ARCHBISHOP, which was serialized in the magazine from January through June 1927. In full: "I'm so glad you like the first instalment -- it cheers one a lot to have an editor feel really pleased. The Virgin of Guadaloupe begins the second instalment -- it's well to sound that legendary note more than once, I think. Besides, that legend will set the stage for the second number as the Prologue does for the first. I'll send you the second, by the way, when I return to New York the first week in November. Cordially yours, Willa Cather." Cather first visited the small New Hampshire resort town of Jaffrey in 1917 for a three-week vacation but stayed for two months and worked on MY ANTONIA in a snug dormer room on the third floor of the Shattuck Inn. She would return regularly to Jaffrey in the years that followed, always staying in the same room, and eventually was buried in the town. A rare example of Cather writing to an editor about the early stages of publication of her most important book.

Walter Joseph Phillips (October 25, 1884 – July 5, 1963) was an English-born Canadian painter and woodcutter, acclaimed as one of Canada's most famous printmakers and for popularizing the colour woodcut in the style of the Japanese. His artistic career spanned from the 1900s through the 1940s, during which time his work was exhibited throughout North America and Great Britain. In 1940 he was asked to become a resident artist at the Banff Centre, then known as the Banff School of Fine Arts, where he played an important role in the development of their visual arts program. Its Walter Phillips Gallery, which focuses on contemporary art, is named after him. The Glenbow Museum in Calgary, Alberta holds an extensive collection of Phillips works and a research archive..

        THE HISTORY OF SPIRITUALISM

      1926. [In Two Volumes.] With Eight Plates [in each volume]. London, New York, Toronto and Melbourne: Cassell and Company, n.d. (1926). Original dark blue cloth, with dust jackets. First Edition of Doyle's major work on spiritualism. Ever since his son and his brother had each died of pneumonia during the Great War, Doyle's obsession had been spiritualism, with short tracts such as THE NEW REVELATION and THE VITAL MESSAGE; however, it was in this two-volume compendium that Doyle sought to bring together all of the movement's history. (Doyle acknowledges in his Preface that the majority of the research and even perhaps of the writing was done for him by the psychic authority and book-collector Leslie Curnow; Doyle wanted Curnow to share the credit, but the publisher insisted that only Doyle's name appear on the title page and binding.)~The volumes are unusually bright, in fine condition except that there is very light, occasional foxing on some leaves (as one would expect with this thick wove paper); the rather scarce dust jackets are very good-plus (slight soil and edge-wear, including one small chip at an upper corner and an inch-plus closed tear). Although the number of copies printed is unknown, it was probably relatively few (as the book was priced at 42 shil­lings per set, and as Doyle had had to share in the cost of publication). Green & Gibson B37a.
