        Winnie-the-Pooh

      London: Methuen & Co. Ltd.,, 1926. With Decorations by Ernest H. Shepard. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt, gilt vignette on front cover, top edges gilt, yellow map endpapers. Illustrated throughout by Ernest H. Shepard. Ownership signature to front free endpaper, closed tear to front endpaper which has been repaired neatly, mild rubbing and bumping to corners and ends of spine, light soiling to rear cover. A very good 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.

This print by Rockwell Kent depicts a young woman washing her hair at the shore of a lake.

Rockwell Kent (1882-1971) was an American realist painter from Tarrytown, New York. Kent spent his life in a variety of places, including Maine, Newfoundland, Alaska, Greenland, and South America. His paintings, lithographs, and woodcuts often portray aspects of a life lived in nature and are collected today by major museums throughout the country. Kent was also a prolific writer and illustrator who produced several books. This print is a lovely example of his work.

        Sonnets For Caresse.

      Paris: Albert Messein, Editeur, 7 October 1926 - Octavo (164 × 111 mm). Original presentation vellum, hand-painted titles to spine and border to sides, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. With the original wrappers bound in. Fine. Presentation copy, inscribed by Caresse Crosby, of the third and most complete edition of Harry's first book, this copy 36 of 100 numbered copies on Arches paper (there were also 7 on japon and one on vellum). This copy, which is in beautiful condition with the original wrappers bound into the hand-painted vellum binding as issued, is inscribed on the first blank, "For the Elins, Happy New Year, from Caresse, à Paris ce 3 Janvier 1927". Harry Crosby (1898–1929) was born the heir to one of Boston's wealthiest banking families (he was the nephew of J. P. Morgan), but after serving as an ambulance driver during the First World War he met and fell in love with a married lady, Mary Peabody (née Jacob), another Bostonian heiress with a passionate and unruly disposition. (She was also, incidentally, the inventor of the backless bra.) They soon eloped to Paris and she changed her name to Caresse (though she briefly entertained "Clytoris", before bestowing that name on her pet whippet). Harry and Caresse embedded themselves in the avant-garde cultural scene, holding wild parties in their palace on the île Saint-Louis, and founding the Black Sun Press, which published (in small, exquisite editions and with no expense spared) the work of English and American expatriate modernists such as Crane, Eliot, Jolas, Joyce, Lawrence, MacLeish, and Pound. The couple lived a life of utter dissolution off Harry's inheritance which, when it ran out, had to be supplemented by telegrams to his banker father such as the infamous, "PLEASE SELL $10,000 WORTH OF STOCK. WE HAVE DECIDED TO LIVE A MAD AND EXTRAVAGANT LIFE", (to which the father, reluctantly but nonetheless amazingly, assented). Following Crosby's tragic death in 1929 (he was found shot dead in the same bed as Josephine, "The Fire Princess", one of his many lovers), the Black Sun Press continued issuing books in Paris and New York under the directorship of Caresse, who survived until 1970. Sonnets for Caresse, which was Harry Crosby's first book, was first printed in October 1925. The first and second edition contained 30 and 37 poems respectively, whereas this third was expanded to 48. The fourth edition of the following year was halved in size with only 24, making this third the most complete edition of Crosby's first book of poems, marking the beginning of an extraordinary love affair. The recipients of this presentation copy from Caresse were her aunt and uncle Emma (née Jacobs) and George Elin, who lived on their Ardleigh Park estate near London. It was to Ardleigh that Caresse had occasionally fled earlier in the 20s when upset by Harry's liberal flirting - this presentation from Caresse to her cousins of these love poems, penned by the man against whom they had learned to take sides, is characteristically capricious.

        North American Indians.

      Edinburgh: John Grant,, 1926. Being Letters and Notes on Their Manners, Customs, and Conditions, Written During Their Eight Years' Travel Amongst the Wildest Tribes of Indians in North America. 1832-1839. 2 volumes, large octavo, original pictorial red cloth, with titles gilt to spine and upper cover, with pictorial decoration in gilt and black, top edge gilt, others uncut. Over 300 colour illustrations on 180 plates, including 3 maps, one coloured and folding. Near-contemporary ink inscription to front of volume one. Light rubbing to extremities and a few very small closed tears to cloth at spine ends, otherwise a smart copy, clean, fresh, attractive and in excellent condition. A young lawyer turned portraitist, Catlin set out in 1830 from his home in Pennsylvania to record on canvas the indigenous tribes of North America and their way of life. His eight years among the major tribes of the Great Plains and the Rocky Mountains resulted in his "Indian Gallery," an enormous collection of artefacts as well as more than four hundred paintings, including portraits and scenes of tribal life. The resultant book, first published with uncoloured plates in 1841, is "one of the most original, authentic and popular works on the subject" (Sabin). "The history and the customs of such a people," Catlin wrote, "preserved by pictorial illustrations, are themes worthy of the lifetime of one man, and nothing short of the loss of my life, shall prevent me from becoming their historian" (Hassrick).

        Travel Talks on China.

      - Washington, D. C., Review and Herald Publishing Association, [1926]. 8vo. Original red cloth, lettered and decorated in black, with the rarely seen illustrated wrappers, pp. 254, many full-page illustrations after photographs; wrapper with a few tears and marginal flaws; otherwise a very good copy. Very rare first edition of a work, despite written with real Evangelist missionary zeal, gives a good account of China at the beginning of the 20th century. Lee, who lived and worked with his family in Bejing, interrupted by long travels with the Inland Mission, encounters bandits, witnesses the 1911 revolution, and generally was a keen observer. He is excusing his sense of adventure with his Christian mission, but the descriptions of China and Chinese society are vivid and fresh. The only other copy on the British Isles we were able to locate is in Oxford. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Annales du Siam I, Chroniques de Suvanna Khamdëng, Suvanna k'ôm kham, Sinhanavati

      Paris, Limoges, Nancy, Imprimeries CHARLES-LAVAUZELLE and Cie, 1926, in-8, XXVpp, (6), 216pp, (6), exemplaire broché, couverture imprimée, orné de 8 planches hors texte (couverture décollée, page de faux titre manquante), Premier volume d'un ensemble de trois comprenant la traduction par Camille Notton des chroniques de Suvanna Khamdeng, Suvanna K'ôm Kham et de Sinhanavati. Le deuxième volume contient la chronique de Lap'un, et l'histoire de la dynastie Chamt'evi, tandis que le troisième comporte la chronique de Xieng Mai. Camille Notton, consul de France à Chiang-mai, se fait le défenseur, dans son travail de traduction de la langue et de la civilisation du nord de la Thaïlande. Notton demeure le pionnier incontournable des études sur le Lanna et ses travaux de traduction continue à faire référence. Dans sa préface, Notton signale qu'il est le premier à traduire ces chroniques dans leur intégralité car les éditions en siamois établies au début du XXème siècle n'offrent que des traductions abrégées, sélectives. Suvanna Khamdaeng est un héros de légende qui n'est connu que par cette chronique, plus religieuse qu'historique, mélangeant allégrement le merveilleux et le réel. Elle conte l'installation de ces chasseurs « venus du nord » dans la région de Chiang maï jusqu'à la formation du muang Lanna après de multiples vicissitudes. Elle évoque de nombreux souverains dans une chronologie qui permet de la situer à partir du 8ème siècle de notre ère. Ce texte tente de démontrer que Suvanna Khamdaeng est le fondateur du royaume de Lanna « dont la prospérité fut le fruit de sa grande sagesse ». La Chronique de Souvanna K'ôm Kham fait partie d'un ensemble de textes originaires du Lan Nâ, généralement distingués de ceux que l'on considère comme historiques (la Chronique de Chiang Mai, par exemple), mais dont on suppose pourtant qu'ils pourraient conserver la mémoire de faits très anciens, voire antérieurs à la période taï. Si ces chroniques ont sans doute peu à nous apprendre d'un point de vue historique, ils recèlent cependant des informations précieuses pour une meilleure compréhension des traditions historiographiques et hagiographiques du domaine taï. Toute l'importance du texte réside en fait dans sa conclusion. Celle-ci se focalise sur la destruction de Souvanna Khom Kham et sur son abandon par ses habitants. La chronique de Sinhanavati est consacrée à la fondation de buddha au pays Yônaka, à la révisions des Écritures de l'histoire de ce pays et par la suite, aux peuples khmer et T'ai. C'est notamment dans ce chapitre sur la fondation du buddha, qu'il est écrit que buddha se serait transporté par la voie des airs dans les différents monts du Yonok, et après s'être assis sur chaque rocher qui s'y trouvait et y aurait prédit l'édification d'un sanctuaire bouddhique. Ce sanctuaire (le Wat Phra That Doi Tung) fût en effet construit par le roi Praya Ajjuttaraja Et Maha Kassapa sur ces rochers, considérés comme des reliques ; le sanctuaire est toujours visitable aujourd'hui. Intérieur propre.

        [NEW TYPE OF THEATRE FOR A NEW SOVIET MAN] Moskovsky dramatichesky teatr imeni MGSPS: Gastrol'naia poezdka 1926 [i.e. Theatre of Moscow Provincial Council of Trade Unions: Tour of 1926]

      Moscow: MGSPS, [1926]. [32] pp.: ill., port. 17x12,5 cm. In original illustrated constructivist wrappers. Tear of the spine, wrappers are slightly detached from the text block, loss of the small fragment of the front wrapper (restored with paper) and of the back wrapper, Soviet bookshop's stamp and price written in pen on the back wrapper. First and only edition. One of 10000 copies. This publication was made during the most experimental, bold and innovative period of the Theatre of Moscow Provincial Council of Trade Unions. With 16 portraits of the theatre company (Liubimov-Lanskoi, Doroshevich, Vanin, Rozen-Sanin and others) and 6 scenes from productions. This edition covers the tour of the theater that took place in 1926 in Leningrad, Gomel, Kiev, Kharkov, Zaporozhye and Odessa. The edition includes lists of the company, staff, route, repertoire ('Storm', 'Georgy Gapon', 'Locust', 'The Year of 1881'), short biography and programs for an each production. The Theatre was born in 1922 on the initiative of trade unionists for working audience. The first performance, composed of fragments of Leonid Andreev's play «Savva», was shown in the Hall of Columns of the House of Unions. It aroused great interest among spectators and the press. In connection with the fact that the young collective enjoyed the support of the cultural department of the Moscow trade unions, on March 3, 1923, it was given an official status. In 1924, the theater acquired the theater building in the Hermitage Garden at its complete disposal. In 1925 the theater was headed by an energetic, experienced theatrical figure, actor and director Evsei Osipovich Lyubimov-Lanskoy. Liubimov-Lanskoi was one of the most active theatre activists of 1920s, creator of the first realistic productions about the Revolution. The distinguishing features of the Lyubimov-Lansky productions are strict, precise fixation of life and documentary, and at the same time revolutionary pathos, agitation. He called his theater «theatre of social truth», and his realism - «realism biased, sarcastic, sharp, class-sober". With him, the glory of the experimental stage of modern Soviet drama became established behind the theater. The theater enters into creative cooperation with V. Bill-Belotserkovsky, F. Gladkov, V. Kirshon, A. Afinogenov, N. Pogodin and other young playwrights, trying to find contact and mutual understanding with the young audience of the new spectator. The main artist of the theater at that time was B. Volkov, who worked in the style of constructivism. In the 1920s the theater was in the forefront of the Soviet drama, but in the 1930s this type of theater and actor was already unclaimed.

      - Moscow: MGSPS, [1926]. [32] pp.: ill., port. 17x12,5 cm. In original illustrated constructivist wrappers. Tear of the spine, wrappers are slightly detached from the text block, loss of the small fragment of the front wrapper (restored with paper) and of the back wrapper, Soviet bookshop's stamp and price written in pen on the back wrapper. First and only edition. One of 10000 copies. This publication was made during the most experimental, bold and innovative period of the Theatre of Moscow Provincial Council of Trade Unions. With 16 portraits of the theatre company (Liubimov-Lanskoi, Doroshevich, Vanin, Rozen-Sanin and others) and 6 scenes from productions. This edition covers the tour of the theater that took place in 1926 in Leningrad, Gomel, Kiev, Kharkov, Zaporozhye and Odessa. The edition includes lists of the company, staff, route, repertoire ('Storm', 'Georgy Gapon', 'Locust', 'The Year of 1881'), short biography and programs for an each production. The Theatre was born in 1922 on the initiative of trade unionists for working audience. The first performance, composed of fragments of Leonid Andreev's play «Savva», was shown in the Hall of Columns of the House of Unions. It aroused great interest among spectators and the press. In connection with the fact that the young collective enjoyed the support of the cultural department of the Moscow trade unions, on March 3, 1923, it was given an official status. In 1924, the theater acquired the theater building in the Hermitage Garden at its complete disposal. In 1925 the theater was headed by an energetic, experienced theatrical figure, actor and director Evsei Osipovich Lyubimov-Lanskoy. Liubimov-Lanskoi was one of the most active theatre activists of 1920s, creator of the first realistic productions about the Revolution. The distinguishing features of the Lyubimov-Lansky productions are strict, precise fixation of life and documentary, and at the same time revolutionary pathos, agitation. He called his theater «theatre of social truth», and his realism - «realism biased, sarcastic, sharp, class-sober". With him, the glory of the experimental stage of modern Soviet drama became established behind the theater. The theater enters into creative cooperation with V. Bill-Belotserkovsky, F. Gladkov, V. Kirshon, A. Afinogenov, N. Pogodin and other young playwrights, trying to find contact and mutual understanding with the young audience of the new spectator. The main artist of the theater at that time was B. Volkov, who worked in the style of constructivism. In the 1920s the theater was in the forefront of the Soviet drama, but in the 1930s this type of theater and actor was already unclaimed. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Der Kommandant von Kalymnos. Ein Mysterium aus dem Rokoko der Levante.

      Venedig, S. Maria Formosa, 1926. 8°. 60 S. OLwd. EA. Nicht bei WG II. Mit den beiden Tafeln. Als Manuskript gedruckt bei Paul Kaltschmid, Wien. Eines von 100 Expl. - Leichte Gbrsp., Ebd. etw. fleckig, minimale Lichtschatten. Schönes Expl. - Herzmanovsky-Orlando, (1877 - 1954), studierte nach dem Besuch des Theresianums in Wien 1896-1903 Architektur an der dortigen TH und machte wahrscheinlich 1903 in München die Bekanntschaft Alfred Kubins, durch den er u.a. Franz Blei, Thomas Mann, Karl Wolfskehl sowie Oscar A. H. Schmitz und Gustav Meyrink kennenlernte, die seine Geisteshaltung nachhaltig beeinflußten. 1913/14 unternahm Herzmanovsky-Orlando ausgedehnte Reisen, die ihn u.a. nach England, Italien, Ägypten und Zypern führten, beendete 1916 seine Tätigkeit als Architekt sowie in der Zentralkommission für Denkmalpflege und übersiedelte 1917 aus gesundheitlichen Gründen nach Meran, wo er sich, finanziell unabhängig, ganz seinem literarischen und künstlerischen Schaffen widmen konnte. Neben einem umfassenden graphischen Werk erschien 1928 sein selbstillustrierter Roman \"Der Gaulschreck im Rosennetz. Eine Wiener Schnurre aus dem modernen Barock\", die neben einem Privatdruck die einzige Buchveröffentlichung zu seinen Lebzeiten war. Er schrieb phantastische Erzählwerke, u.a. sein Hauptwerk, den utopischen Roman \"Das Maskenspiel der Genien\" (1958), parodistische Dramen wie \"Kaiser Joseph und die Bahnwärterstochter\", ferner Pantomimen und Ballette sowie zahlreiche Erzählungen, die dem anekdotischen Umfeld seines Bekanntenkreises gewidmet sind. Bekannt wurde sein Werk erst durch die stark bearbeitete Ausgabe Friedrich Torbergs, die 1957-63 in vier Bänden erschien. (DBE) Versand D: 7,00 EUR
