        The Stronghold

      London Andrew Melrose 1926 - 8vo. 268pp. Near fine in publisher's burgundy cloth titled in gilt to spine and blind to front board, in a very good example of the elusive dustwrapper, with some chipping to spine ends, not affecting text and some chipping and soiling to rear panel. Internally clean, minor foxing to prelims. A bizarre and unusual supernatural story set during the English Civil War, shades of "The Hole of The Pit." Berridge was an Anglican clergyman in the remote fastnesses of rural Essex (I'm not sure they have ever been described as such, but I have been there, and they should), his novels, in common with many clergyman authors, (that's a list that needs building) are primarily involved with the locality in which they live and work. Blind men creeping through graveyards, secret cults, disturbing rituals and a rural England thrown into utter chaos by the horrors of war. It's great stuff, can't beat war, romance and ghostly church rituals for a spot of entertainment. Scarce and delightful. wtpc6 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

All issues showing light overall wear, toning, and dustiness to wrappers, with occasional small nicks and tears to spine ends; wrappers on Vol.2, No.3, and Vol.3, No.1 re-glued at an early date; five issues with trace of soil/damping to upper or lower edges, extending into affected margins no more than 1/2 cm.; Vol.2, No.4 and Vol.3, No.3 with a few splits and tears to joints and spine-fold; chiefly clean internally; Very Good to Very Good+ overall. After finally getting Ulysses published in Paris, Joyce had encountered many problems before his novel finally saw publication by Random House in 1934. Between March 1918 and December 1920, The Little Review attempted to publish Ulysses serially; 23 installments appeared before publication was halted by actions brought by the Society for the Suppression of Vice. All issues were subsequently banned by the U.S. Post Office. As a result of the ban, and in an attempt to capitalize on public interest, publisher and writer Samuel Roth published Ulysses in bowdlerized form 14 episodes in 12 installments of Two Worlds Monthly. Vol.3, No.4 was never issued separately, and is found only in the later issued two volume set bound by the publisher. These reprints were unauthorized by Joyce, and the serialization "resulted in considerable public indignation and provoked the "International Protest" signed by 167 artists and writers and printed in Transition.Joyce's American legal representatives obtained an injunction against Samuel Roth and Two Worlds Publishing Company on December 27, 1928, over a year after Two Worlds Monthly had ceased publication (Slocum & Cahoon, p.100). Additional contributions include works by T.S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, Djuna Barnes, D.H. Lawrence, Stephen Crane, Norman Douglas, and others. An important and contentious debut of the author's most enduring work. Slocum & Cahoon C68; Connolly 100.

        Soldiers' Pay

First Printing, one of only 2500 copies, of the author's first novel. 8vo: 319,[1]pp. Publisher's navy blue cloth, spine and upper cover stamped in yellow, fore-edge untrimmed, stylized blue and white vine-patterned end papers, title page in red and black.

Without the scarce dust jacket. Petersen A2.1. ¶ In 1925, Faulkner moved to New Orleans where he joined a literary circle centered on Sherwood Anderson and was introduced to the modernist innovations of T. S. Eliot and James Joyce. His interest in experimental writing was piqued, and he began a novel, his first, Soldiers' Pay, portraying the tragic homecoming of a wounded war hero. Though set in Georgia, it was, nonetheless, a kind of rehearsal for the later Mississippi novels, full of despair and "mythic motifs of impotence and futile love." (Literary Encyclopedia) Andersen recommended the book for publication, without having ever read it. Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. In 1921, Faulkner worked briefly in a New York bookstore, where he met Elizabeth Prall, who later married Sherwood Anderson. That led to an apprenticeship with Anderson when Faulkner moved to New Orleans in 1925. "In a starry literary circle [Faulkner] was inspired to experiment with prose pieces, many of which he published in the New Orleans Picayune and the fledgling literary journal, The Double Dealer. Friends acquainted him with Freud, the mythic world of the anthropologist Sir James Frazer's Golden Bough, and most importantly, the modernist innovations of T. S. Eliot and James Joyce. Faulkner's absorbed interest in experimental writing proceeded apace; building on his brief published pieces in local venues, he began a novel, Soldiers' Pay, which portrayed the tragic homecoming of a fatally wounded war hero. Set in Georgia, it was, nonetheless a kind of rehearsal for the later Mississippi novels. Full of despair and "fisher-king" mythic motifs of impotence and futile love, the novel focussed on the returning veteran, Mahon, who is accompanied by a fellow soldier and a young widow, both met on the homeward bound train. Mahon's heartless flapper fiancé, another woman he has deserted, a jaded, randy intellectual and Mahon's minister father complete a cast that plays out a tragic story of a sterile postwar world in which old loyalties and values seem to mean little. Anderson, who had promised Faulkner he would get the book in print if he didn't have to read it, came through, and the novel was published in 1926." (Literary Encyclopedia). Fine-.

        The Theory of the Gene

      New Haven, Yale University Press, 1926. Octavo, xvi, 343 pages with 155 illustrations. Cloth a little sunned, marked and scuffed, with slight wear to the extremities; edges lightly marked; a very good copy. With the contemporary ownership details of 'I.F. Phipps, Cornell University ... April 1926', and the later name-stamp of G.M.E. Mayo, University of Adelaide. While still a student at the University of Adelaide, Phipps had been appointed to head the plant breeding section at the Waite Institute; he was 'sent to the US to train under Cornell geneticists R.A. Emerson, Barbara McClintock, and George Beadle from 1925 to 1928' (David Steffes: 'The "Eco-Worldview" of Charles Birch', 2008). Some lightly pencilled marginal notes (confined mainly to the 'General Conclusions' chapter) appear to be by Phipps. The author, famous for his experimental research with the fruit fly and establishment of the chromosome theory of heredity, won the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1933.

        Rare Views of Palm Island Penal Settlement

      New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, circa 1926-1929. Set of three photograph albums taken and compiled by an English couple who were evidently residents of Australia for at least three years, and possibly connected to the livestock raising industry. Contains 427 gelatin silver print photographs, both snapshot images and professional works, mounted onto cardstock leaves, most with either manuscript captions or embedded typescript captions. Photographs vary in size, the smallest measuring approximately 8 x 6 cm, and the largest 12 x 7 cm. Three oblong 8vo. string-tied brown paper board albums, the first measuring approximately 31 x 25 cm, the other two measuring approximately 29 x 21 cm. All pleasing and nostalgic. Captions reveal that the travellers are from the Saunders family. Images of "F.B. Saunders" or "F.B.S." have been removed, though further research may lead to his profession or contribution whilst in Australia, possibly as a pastoralist or grazier. It would be most interesting if a connection could be made to London-born Henry John Saunders (1855-1919) who emigrated to Australia as a civil engineer and mining agent, and who rose to be senator of Western Australia in 1903. Largely centered in New South Wales, this abundant set of photographs captures a nation in transformation, with images of old town streets and colonial buildings, abandoned gold mines, and family-operated cattle or sheep stations, as well as new developments in communications, trade and technology. Rare firsthand views of the Palm Island Penal settlement illustrate the regretful continued oppression of the Aboriginal community. The first album, largest in dimension and containing 73 photographs, begins with the departure for an adventure and extended residence in Australia. Onboard a ship named Herminius, the voyage begins at the Port of Tilbury located on the River Thames at Tilbury in Essex. Here the travellers include photographs of Cape Town, then Melbourne, Sydney, Townsville in Queensland, St. Kilda (city in Victoria, Australia), Griffith, Lismore, and Gloucester in New South Wales. One of the photographs taken after arriving in Australia is captioned "The Hash House" and reveals that the voyage to Australia was made in 1926. The second album is centered in New South Wales, with views providing a glimpse into several towns with at least one main-street view illustrating a quieter era of family shops and dirt roads. Some places represented are Tanworth, Kyogle, Barraba, the Cessnock Mining District, Kurri Kurri, Newcastle, Sydney, Canberra, an irrigation area near Yenda, the Hunter River region, the Quirindi Plains, Coonamble, Griffith, Murrumburra, and even more. The photographer/traveller identifies numerous stations and station homesteads, suggesting that he [Saunders] was knowledgeable about the trade in the region, and may have been involved in ranching himself. Quite contemporary to their inception, we find early views of the Cairns War Memorial which had just been built in 1925, and the War Memorial Clock Tower in Barraba which was unveiled on Armistice Day 1924. Views of Brisbane, Whitsunday Passage, and Melbourne are also included. With 154 photographs, this album spans from as early as May 1927, with snapshot images of the arrival of the Duke of York at Sydney for his Royal Visit, to 13 July 1929, when, according to a caption, a ship named "Canberra" departed from King's Street Wharf in Sydney. The flooding of the Richmond river in March 1929 is documented in photographs of Kyogle and Molong. The third album contains 200 photographs and spans the same time period as the last, with dated captions ranging from 23 September 1928 to 5 December 1929. A highlight in this album is a tour of Palm Island which at the time was a penal settlement. A group of convicts are photographed as they are transported to the island. We also find a lovely panorama of Bathurst, and an early photograph of the old courthouse in Bourke which retains its unique purpose today [The Bourke court house is unique for inland Australia as it was originally a maritime court, and to this day maintains that distinction.] New bridges, irrigation, rail lines, coal and gold mining, urban construction - these views illustrate a rapidly developing society. At Tumut we see the original equestrian race course, at Proserpine a sugar mill, at Grafton a timber mill, and at Sydney the Harbour Bridge being constructed. Frigidaire foreman A. Prestland is photographed standing in front of a company motorcar, and evidently a new homestead being built at Coolah Creek Station for Colonel John McClean Arnott (1869-1945) who was at time owner of Coolah Creek Station. [Palm Island is an Aboriginal community located on Great Palm Island, also called by the Aboriginal name "Bwgcolman", an island on the Great Barrier Reef in North Queensland. By the early 1920s, Palm Island had become the largest of the Government Aboriginal settlements. Administrators found its location attractive as Aboriginal people could be isolated, but Palm Island quickly gained a reputation amongst Aborigines as a penal settlement, as they were frequently removed from across Queensland as punishment; being "disruptive", "falling pregnant to a white man" or "being born with mixed blood." Any of these so-called infringements could lead to exile on Palm Island by court sentencing. Others were exiled after being released from prison, or were sent by missions administrators who deemed them to be ill-mannered or disruptive Aboriginals. Removals to Palm Island continued until the late 1960s.] In Australia, a station is a large landholding used for producing livestock, predominantly cattle or sheep, that need an extensive range of grazing land. It corresponds to American ranches that operate under the Taylor Grazing Act of 1934 on public lands. The owner of a station is called a pastoralist or a grazier (which correspond to the North American term rancher).

        Gene Tunney Archive

      - An enormous archive of photos, correspondence, scrapbooks, and ephemera from the personal files of heavyweight boxing champion Gene Tunney, best-remembered for his dual victories over boxing legend Jack Dempsey. The approximately 14 linear feet of material includes more than 700 photos of Tunney through all aspects of his life; 200 stills from his lost 1926 silent film, The Fighting Marine; over 500 pages of letters to Tunney from close friends, writers, and business leaders, including several dozen of his retained carbons; nearly 250 telegrams of congratulations on his second victory over Dempsey from friends and celebrities; and a vast assortment of ephemera and memorabilia, including a pair of used boxing gloves, boxing programs, various awards and commendations, and an abundance of contemporary newspapers and newspaper clippings.Among the highlights are nearly a dozen Signed and Inscribed photos of Tunney; two photographic portraits of Tunney by Carl Van Vechten; photos of Tunney with Jack Dempsey, George Bernard Shaw, Thornton Wilder, and Amelia Earhart; correspondence from Wilder, President Herbert Hoover, Eleanor Roosevelt, Booth Tarkington, Ed Sullivan, Dorothy Canfield Fisher, and other political, cultural, and business leaders; several meticulously assembled scrapbooks of his boxing career, including a stunning elephant folio containing original photos and news clippings documenting his second bout with Dempsey, presented to Tunney by his trainer, Bill McCabe; and a checkbook with over 70 canceled checks Signed by Tunney. The collection is overall in very good condition with modest age-toning and general wear; some small groups of items, consisting of a couple of boxes of the newspapers, a handful of photos, and a small group of ephemera related to his silent film, have been damaged from storage (including tears, dampstaining, and erosion at some of the extremities).James Joseph "Gene" Tunney (1897-1978) was undefeated as World Heavyweight Champion from 1926-1928. He is best remembered for his two victories over Jack Dempsey, particularly the rematch which is one of the most famous boxing matches in history. The Long Count, as it is also known, was held at Chicago's Soldier Field on September 22, 1927 and drew more than 100,000 spectators. It was the first fight to earn over $1 million at the gate (ultimately taking in over $2.6 million). During the fight Tunney was knocked down for the first time in his career, but Dempsey refused to withdraw to a neutral corner, thus delaying the referee's count and giving Tunney extra time to recover. Tunney eventually got back up and won the bout by a unanimous decision. He retired the next year after defending his belt against New Zealand's Tom Henney.Tunney was one of seven children born to Irish immigrants in the working-class neighborhood of Greenwich Village, New York. He joined the local athletic club as a teenager and took up boxing. While not the strongest or quickest fighter, he was a smart and strategic boxer who knew how to exploit his opponents' weaknesses. He joined the Marines at the outbreak of World War I and became the service's light heavyweight champion. He turned pro after the war and climbed the ranks as "The Fighting Marine." After his final match he married Connecticut socialite, Mary "Polly" Lauder, a Carnegie heiress. Tunney threw himself into various business endeavors and national organizations, including several anti-Communist causes such as the National Foundation for American Youth, for which he served as national chairman.Despite never finishing high school, Tunney was also a lifelong autodidact who preferred reading to most other pursuits. His refined speech and scholarly tendencies were criticized by sportswriters of the day who felt his dedication to books was a detriment to his boxing career and reputation. Such academic pursuits ultimately helped him excel after retiring from the ring, where many others boxers faltered. Along the way he formed

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1926 - Octavo. Original dark green cloth, gilt lettered spine, blind lettered front cover, fore edge untrimmed. With the dust jacket. Ownership signature to front free endpaper. An excellent copy, in the exceptional jacket with a few trivial nicks to extremities. First edition, first printing. A very attractive copy in the first state of the dust jacket with the girl's lips entire (later states show the inking of the lips deteriorating) and the type intact on pages 38 and 248. All the Sad Young Men "was Fitzgerald's strongest collection, with four major stories ("The Rich Boy," "Winter Dreams," "Absolution," and "The Sensible Thing") as well as five commercial stories As was his custom, Fitzgerald polished the magazine texts of these stories. He was convinced that the book publication of stories affected his reputation, whereas the magazine appearances were ignored by the critics" (Bruccoli, Some Sort of Epic Grandeur, 272). In a playful letter to his editor Maxwell Perkins, Fitzgerald instructed him to have the jacket "show transition from his early exuberant stories of youth which created a new type of American girl and the later and more serious mood which produced The Great Gatsby and marked him as one of the half-dozen masters of English prose now writing in America What other writer has shown such unexpected developments, such versatility, changes of pace,' etc., etc., etc. I think that, toned down as you see fit, is the general line" (quoted in Turnbull, The Letters of F. Scott Fitzgerald, 189-90). Bruccoli A.12.I.a. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Ulysses Serialized in Two Worlds Monthly--11 Volumes

      New York City: Two Worlds Publishing Company. 1926. Original tan wrappers with black and alternate color each issue. Overall the issues are in good condition or better with some chipping on edges and spines with slight loss of spine content on two issues. Moderate soiling to wrappers. Edges are soiled. Text blocks tend to be clean and tight. Staple binding is holding well. January 1927 issue has previous owners name written in pencil on front. September 1927 issue shows archival repairs on the spine and older cello tape inside back wrapper. The literary world showed great intrigue when Ulysses was first published in France in 1922 and soon in England. Obscenity charges delayed the American edition until 1934. This did not stop Samuel Roth, publisher of Two World Monthly, from publishing a slightly edited serialized version in 1926-1927 in eleven issues of his literary magazine. By the time James Joyce successfully sued Roth to cease and desist publication, Two Worlds Monthly had ceased publication. Roth argued that no one held the copyright to Ulysses in the United States allowing him to reprint the novel as he wished. The Little Review, a periodical out of Chicago, had received Joyce's permission to serialize Ulysses in 1917 but ran into legal issues and as far as copyright law went, no one in the United States technically held the rights to publish Joyce's masterpiece. Complete sets of Ulysses in Two Worlds Monthly are becoming increasingly difficult to pull together. ; Two Worlds Monthly; Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall .
