        LUD-IN-THE-MIST

      Alfred A. Knopf, New York City, 1927 - Small 8vo, pp. 313. Helen Hope Mirrlees (1887-1978) was a British poet, novelist, and translator (she spoke six languages by her mid-20s), and friend of Virginia Woolf. Her best known work is "Lud-in-the-Mist", which was first published by W. Collins Sons in London, in 1926 (See Bleiler, "The Check-List of Science-Fiction and Supernatural Fiction"). It "is a unique fantasy novel, slow moving and exquisitely written, fairly short and very much unlike the typical Tolkien rehashes of today" (George T. Dodds, SF Site Reviews). This is the first American edition. This title has been re-published numerous times, starting with a mass-market paperback in 1970, and is now available in the abhorrent POD (print-on-demand) format (the book equivalent to a TV dinner). Our copy shows rubbing to the edges of the boards. The paper title label, affixed to the spine, is slightly pulled away, but not torn. The half-cloth spine, and the boards, are lightly soiled. The "Borzoi"-design endpapers are clean and tight, although the binding feels very slightly sprung. The contents are clean and bright. Overall, in good, to good plus, condition. No dust jacket. Bound in original patterned paper over boards; half cloth spine [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Roads & Harbours Pieces in Cadence and Rhyme

      New York: Harry Roberts, Jr. / Derrydale Press. Very Good+. 1927. Limited Edition; 1st Printing. Hardcover. SIGNED EDITION. Limited to 150 copies, this being #124. Signed by the author with a short inscription, on the front endpaper. This book is in Very Good+ condition and is lacking a dust jacket. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. The spine ends and corners of the book covers have some begining bumping and rubbing. There are a couple of small spots of discoloration on the front cover of the book. The text pages are clean and bright. A scarce Derrydale Press volume. "The Derrydale Press began publishing books in 1926, not long before the Great Depression and an obviously tough time to start a business. The first two titles Connett published werenÂ’t directly sporting related but they were contract published, meaning there was no risk of unsold inventory and guaranteed income to get the business started. The third title was published for the AnglerÂ’s Club of New York, a large sporting club of which Connett was a member. After that, the Press picked up steam and began publishing hunting and fishing titles from authors that weÂ’ve come to know as the best in the business. The 1930Â’s were the glory years for the Derrydale Press. In addition to books he authored, Connett was publishing titles from the likes of Nash Buckingham, Jack OÂ’Connor, Russell Annabel, Burton Spiller, Edmund Ware Smith and Ben Ames Williams. At the time, it was the only publishing house in the world dedicated solely to sporting books. Sadly, all good things must come to an end. The onset of World War II created a shortage of quality paper that Connett used to publish his books, and the Derrydale Press closed its doors in 1941." ; Signed by Author .

        FOUR AUTOGRAPH LETTERS SIGNED BY THE FAMOUS IRISH BARITONE SINGER HARRY PLUNKET GREENE.

      London, U.K.: March 17, 1924-Oct. 27, 1927., 1927.. Very good. - sc Small octavo [approximately 7 inches high by 4-3/8 inches wide]. The 4 letters dated "March 17, 1924", "July 27, 1924", "Jan. 17, 1926" and "Oct. 27, 1927" are penned in black ink on his personalized letterhead with his Kensington address printed in the top right corner. Three of the letters fill 1-1/2 to 1-2/3 sides of the letterhead. The 7/27/24 letter fills 2 sheets of letterhead [4 sides]. All four are signed "Yours ever, H. P. Greene". The letters are lightly bumped & soiled with small stains to the 1st side of the 1st letter & a few light ink stains to the 3rd letter. The letters have been folded once for mailing with a tiny tear to the right side of the fold & to the top edge of the 1st letter. Very good. <p>Irish baritone Harry Plunket Greene made a notable contribution to British musical life not only through his concerts and recitals but also by writing and lecturing on his art, and in the field of competitions and examinations. He studied for two years at the Stuttgart Conservatory under Hromada, made his debut in "The Messiah" in 1888, and his operatic debut at Covent Garden in 1890. Thereafter he chose to make his career in recital. During the 1890s he became one of the foremost British interpreters of the German lieder, giving the first complete public performance of Schumann's "Dichterliebe" to be heard in London in 1895. He was much admired for his style, musicianship and intelligence. He created the title part in Hubert Parry's "Job" and was the original exponent or dedicatee of many of Parry's lyrical works. Charles Villiers Stanford wrote "Songs of the Sea" for him. He was a friend of Elgar and was the original baritone in the first performance of Elgar's "Dream of Gerontius" under Hans Richter in 1900.<p>This is a wonderful selection of the singer's correspondence, with many musical references. The letters, written in a somewhat difficult handwriting, are friendly, informal and at times teasingly affectionate. They are addressed to "Dear Griffin", and from the content it is clear that Griffin was a singer and Plunket Greene was his teacher or mentor: "I have just heard from Bowman [Paget Bowman of British National Opera Company] that a letter will arrive for you next Wednesday asking you to go down and play 'Pagliacci'....Let's run through it again before you go" [3/17/24]; "As soon as you have mastered time and can have a picture in your mind of the shape of phrases [you] will be able to go where you like and carry all before you..." [7/27/24]; "Don't forget that it is the word and not the note which pulls you out of your difficulties & that in the word it is the consonant & not the vowel which links up with the engine..." [7/27/24].<p>There are a number of references to other musicians. Plunket Greene writes of the British National Opera Company: "The B.N.O. wound up opening here. He [Bowman?] evicted Percy Pitt and got back Fred Austin & the change is little short of miraculous. The whole company shot up in style like a flower..." [7/27/24]. Conductor Percy Pitt left the BNOC in 1924 and became Principal Conductor at Covent Garden. There is a somewhat illegible reference here to Vaughan Williams' "Hugh the Drover" which was in the BNOC's repertoire and was first performed at His Majesty's Theatre on 7/14/24. In the same letter Plunket Greene writes of the death of cellist Victor Herbert, whom he would presumably have known from his time studying in Stuttgart: "Poor old Victor Herbert; I remember him so well. It is queer to look back on the time when he was principal cello in the Stuttgart orchestra in the '80s...". On October 27, 1927, he writes of the all-girl harmony singing trio formed in 1924 by Pearl [Hamilton] Santos, Violet Hamilton and Jessie Fordyce: "The Hamilton Sisters & Fordyce are just A1 as they are. I wouldn't interfere with them for anything. It's just perfect in its way. I do trust they leave things alone, not try to change."<p>Interestingly, in the 7/27/24 letter Plunket Greene makes a passing reference to proofreading his classic book on fly-fishing, "Where the Bright Waters Meet", which was published that year: "My fishing book will be out first week in September ". Taken together, these letters offer a delightful insight into the mind and personality of an important musical figure.

        Hotel Gray et d'Albion et Galeries Fleuries [WITH 35 ORIGINAL SILVER GELATIN PRINTS]

      NP, [Cannes] 1927 - Oblong quarto. [35] leaves. Uncut. Original string bound photo-album, with gold lettering to front cover. Unique photo-album documenting the construction and completion of the famous Galeries Fleuries, in Cannes in 1923-24, and consisting of luxury shops, tearooms, preceded by colonnades and arcades surrounding a luxuriant floral garden and a miniature golf. Nice architect Charles Dalmas* and his son Marcel traced its plans.The album opens with two original photographs: The first one is a portrait of French architect Charles Dalmas, next to a photograph of an unidentified man (presumably the director of the Hotel Gray et d'Albion). Both pictures have an oval shape, and measure 5 1/2 x 4". The next eleven leaves each contain each a silver gelatin print depicting the various construction stages. Each photograph measures 4 3/4 x 6 3/4". The following eighteen leaves each contain an original photograph showing various areas of the Galeries Fleuries after their completion (people strolling in the floral garden, tearooms with people enjoying themselves at the terrace, people playing at the miniature golf, facades of a few luxury shops, etc.). Two of the pictures are tinted. Each photograph measures 4 3/4 x 6 3/4". The next leaf features a 4 3/4 x 6 3/4" photograph of Charles Dalmas accompanied with his son Marcel, posing under one of the arcades. The following three leaves each contain a loose original silver gelatin print depicting the Galeries Fleuries heavily covered with snow, after the severe and unusual snow storm of December 18, 1927 (size: 7 x 9 1/4", image: 4 1/8 x 6 1/8"). All the photographs (except the last three which are loose) are pasted to a decorative heavy cardstock. Pasted on inside of back cover is a vintage newspaper article covering the inauguration of the Galeries Fleuries (February 9, 1924).Moderate creasing and sporadic closed tears along edges of album. Back cover creased. Newspaper article age-toned.Upper corner of the first loose photograph slightly chipped (not affecting image). Album in overall good, interior in very good, original photographs in near fine to fine condition. * Architect Charles Dalmas (1863-1938): After completing his studies in Paris at the Academie des Beaux Arts, Charles Dalmas returned to Nice where he built up his business steadily, ultimately completing around 100 houses, 20 or so hotels and other projects. He built some of Nice's most beautiful apartment buildings, such as the Hôtel Hermitage (Avenue Bieckert), the Winter Palace and the Grand Palace. The Hôtel Atlantic (now the Boscol Exedra Hôtel, 12 Boulevard Victor-Hugo) and the Hôtel Le Royal (23 Promenade des Anglais) are just two of his fine hotel commissions. The Hôtel Plaza (Rue du Verdun), where he re-designed the facade, reflects the period fashion for elaborate stucco decorations. Dalmas, more than any other, can be said to be the man behind much of the characteristic Belle Époque style present in Nice and the French Riviera. After WWI, Charles Dalmas built two of the finest examples of Art Deco, with his delightful pavillon of the Alpes-Maritimes for the 1925 International Exposition of Modern Industrial and Decorative Arts, and the Palais de la Méditerranée, in Nice (1929).

        POEMS (1914-1927)

      London: William Heinemann, Ltd, 1927. No. 63 OF 115 SIGNED COPIES (100 of which were for sale). This is an attractively bound collection of the early poetry of Robert Graves, including the war poems that first brought him notice. It was compiled with the assistance of his second wife, the American poet Laura Riding, at a time when Graves was struggling to find his footing and his poetic voice in the post-war world. Robert von Ranke Graves (1895-1985) had an unusual childhood among men of his age and class. His father was a British poet, and his mother the daughter of a German academic; he grew up in a literary household where artistic achievement was emphasized over sport and hunting prowess. He was set to study classics at Oxford when the First World War intervened. Like his friend Siegfried Sasson, Graves became a haunting voice for youth in the trenches of France. His memoir of that time, "Goodbye to All That" (1929), brought him lasting fame. His career spanned more than 70 years, and included acclaimed novels, poetry, literary criticism, social history, and groundbreaking works on the influence of classical mythology on literature. The present strictly limited edition is uncommonly seen on the market in agreeable condition. The very pleasant binding here is from the most recent generation of Sangorski productions.. 230 x 147 mm. (9 x 5 3/4"). xii, 229, [1] pp. No. 63 OF 115 SIGNED COPIES (100 of which were for sale). Graceful navy crushed morocco, gilt, by Sangorski & Sutcliffe (stamp-signed on rear turn-in), covers with an unusual Art Deco-style frame composed of straight and curving gilt rules, dots, and circlets, punctuated with stylized lily and poppy tools, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with a bold floral spray on a ground of gilt dots, red morocco label, turn-ins with geometric tooling, blue floral-printed endpapers, top edge gilt. Original paper wrappers bound in. In a suede-lined slipcase with matching morocco lip. Printed on Ellerslie paper with unicorn watermark. Faint offsetting (from bookmark?) to half title, a few spots of foxing to margin of final leaf, otherwise a very fine copy internally, quite clean, fresh, and bright, and in an as-new binding. This is an attractively bound collection of the early poetry of Robert Graves, including the war poems that first brought him notice.

After WWI, Charles Dalmas built two of the finest examples of Art Deco, with his delightful pavillon of the Alpes-Maritimes for the 1925 International Exposition of Modern Industrial and Decorative Arts, and the Palais de la Méditerranée, in Nice (1929).

        My: román [We: a novel]. Lidová knihovna Aventina, svazek 23 [Aventinum's Popular library, volume 23]

      Ot. Storch-Marien, Prague 1927 - Small octavo (16.5 × 11.5 cm). Original decorative wrappers; 172, [3] pp. Publisher's ads. Very good or better; with just a tiny tear to the lower spine. The second ever appearance in print of Zamyatin's only completed novel, a groundbreaking work in the genre of a futuristic dystopia that was read as a bitter satire on Soviet society and could not be published in Russia. Completed in 1921, it was first issued in an English translation in 1924 (New York, E. P. Dutton), on which the present translation was actually by and large based. Evidently Roman Jakobson, living in Prague at the time, helped the translator, Vaclav Koenig, by repeatedly writing to Zamiatin and even requesting a copy of the English translation (Olshanskaya, 266). This translation even preceded the severely altered version of the Russian original that appeared in the Russian emigre journal "Volia Rossii", also in early 1927. In order to avoid repercussions for Zamyatin, who was then still living in the Soviet Union, the editor of "Volia Rossii" had pretended to publish a translation of a Czech literary work. Nevertheless, "the apearance of the Russian version in Volia Rossii caused an open political campaign against Zamiatin in the Soviet Union, and in 1931 he wrote a letter to Stalin requesting permission to emigrate" (Olshansky, 267). The Czech translation is rare, with KVK, OCLC showing only the copies at the Czech National Library and in Ljubljana. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
