Henry Havelock Ellis, known as Havelock Ellis (2 February 1859 – 8 July 1939), was a British physician, writer, and social reformer who studied human sexuality. He was co-author of the first medical textbook in English on homosexuality in 1897, and also published works on a variety of sexual practices and inclinations, including transgender psychology. He is credited with introducing the notions of narcissism and autoeroticism, later adopted by psychoanalysis. He served as president of the Galton Institute and, like many intellectuals of his era, supported eugenics.

        Winnie-the-Pooh.

      London: Methuen & Co.,, 1926. Octavo. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in green morocco, titles and pictorial centre tools to spine gilt, single rule to boards gilt, multiple pictorial blocks to boards gilt, floral endpapers, with the original endpapers bound in, twin rule to turn-ins, gilt edges. Illustrated by E. H. Shepard. A fine copy. First edition, first impression. After the huge success of When We Were Very Young, first published on 6 November 1924, Milne was asked to contribute a story to the London Evening News. "The Wrong Sort of Bees", published on Christmas Eve 1925, was based on a bedtime story that Milne had told his son Christopher. It starred Christopher's stuffed bear, who had made his first public appearance in the poem "Teddy Bear", published in Punch in 1924 and later in When We Were Very Young. The original toy was a top-of-the-range Alpha Farnell bought at Harrods for Christopher Milne's first birthday, known initially as Edward or Edward Bear, then later rechristened Winnie-the-Pooh (after a favourite bear cub at London zoo). Winnie-the-Pooh was an immediate success and garnered even more enthusiastic reviews than its predecessor, with one critic writing that "When the real Christopher Robin is a little old man, children will find him waiting for them. It is the child's book of the season that seems certain to stay" (Thwaite p. 317). The book was first published in London on 14 October 1926 in an edition of 30,000 regular trade copies.

        DUNKARD WOMAN, SHENANDOAH VALLEY, VIRGINIA

      1926 - Original platinum photograph, image size 8 x 6 inc. [20.3 x 15.2 cm.] tipped to 11 x 14 inch board, and presented in an archival window-mat, 16 x 20 inches. SIGNED in pencil on the board beneath the image by the photographer. 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. She is particularly well known for her portraiture, having published several portfolios in magazines as well as three books of portraits. This print appears as Figure 22, page 58, in Philip Walker Jacobs' excellent THE LIFE AND PHOTOGRAPHY OF DORIS ULMANN. The University of Kentucky Press, 2001.

        Winnie the Pooh

      Published by Methuen & co.

It is in Very Good condition. Bound in it's original dark green boards with gold gilt detailing to front and spine. There is some bumping to the spine ends and board corners, and a small knock to the top edge of the rear board. There is a slight lean to the spine and some minor rubbing to the boards, but otherwis the binding is sound and in very good condition. Inside, there is a gift inscription from the author's brother on the front endpaper, reading "Nancy and Joan Bond from the author's brother KJ. J. M. Oct. 1926". The book is also signed by A. A. Milne to the title page. The pages are clean and bright with just the odd age spot and only minor toning rubbing, but largely in excellent condition. The only exception is to page 33/34, which unfortunately has a tear to the bottom of the page, to the inner edge, measuring approximately 6.5 centimetres in lenght (please see photo). Apart from this issue, this is a lovely book, in very nice condition indeed and with a close connection to the author's family.In all, this book would be a very good addition to any rare book collection, being rather special, with both the author's signature to the title page and the close association to his family in his brother's gift inscription. This book would be an excellent investment, in spite of the minor points mentioned above. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have further questions regarding this book.

        TORRENTS OF SPRING: A Romantic Novel in Honor of the Passing of a Great Race

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1926. First edition, First Issue with nine titles listed on the rear panel of the dustjacket. A superb advance copy of the first printing, with an original photograph of Hemingway tipped in and the printed publisher's biographical statement affixed, announcing that " "The Sun Also Rises" will be published by Charles Scribner's Sons in the Fall" 8vo, original black cloth lettered in red on the spine and upper cover. [8], 143 pp. A very fine, especially well preserved copy of Hemingway's first novel, clean and solid, hinges firm, the jacket with a bit of mellowing caused by time and with a small chip to the tip of the jacket's spine panel. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE, VERY RARE ADVANCE COPY WITH ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPH AND PUBLISHER'S TYPED STATEMENT AFFIXED ANNOUNCING THE FORTHCOMING PUBLICATION OF "THE SUN ALSO RISES" AND WITH FORD MADDOX FORD'S LAUDATORY COMMENT ON HEMINGWAY. THIS IS THE AUTHOR'S FIRST LONG WORK TO BE PUBLISHED. Although it was written after THE SUN ALSO RISES --"to cool out," Hemingway explained-- THE TORRENTS OF SPRING was published prior to his more famous novel. It was written as a parody of Sherwood Anderson's Dark Laughter. "It seems to have started as a knockabout parody of Sherwood Anderson's mechanized folkware" (quoted in THE HEMINGWAY READER). Written in ten days, it is a satirical treatment of pretentious writers. Hemingway received a mixed reaction to the novella that was sharply critical of other authors. His wife Hadley believed the characterization of Anderson was "nasty", while F. Scott Fitzgerald considered the novella to be a masterpiece.

        THE LAND OF MIST

      , 1926. 1926. New York: George H. Doran Company, (1926). Original yellow-green cloth, with dust jacket. First American Edition, published two months after the English. This is Doyle's psychic novel, for which he resurrected Professor Challenger (who had journeyed to the land of the dinosaurs in THE LOST WORLD and had faced the end of human life in THE POISON BELT; he would later return for two short stories, "When the World Screamed" and "The Disintegration Machine"). By the 1920s, following the loss of his son and his brother at the end of the Great War, Doyle's preoccupation was spiritualism; just as his other semi-autobiographical novel THE STARK MUNRO LETTERS had provided insights into Doyle's early years in medicine, so THE LAND OF MIST does into his later years in spiritualism.~Unlike the non-fiction books on spiritualism, the novel has a clear narrative, with the hero and heroine taking in one aspect or other of the occult at a time... Lord John Roxton is compelled to change his tune after a session in a haunted house, an episode in which Doyle was in his element: '... Great God! They are moving! They were rushing swiftly and noiselessly downwards! Black, black as night, huge, ill-defined, semi-human and altogether evil and damnable.' [Pearsall, quoting from the text]~This is a bright, near- fine copy (just a hint of cover soil). The quite scarce dust jacket (which on the front panel portrays a glowering Challenger filling an easy chair to capacity, and is printed with ads on the reverse side) is very good -- a few small edge-chips, very light soil.
