        The Birds of Australia.

      London: Witherby & Co., 1910-1927. - Quarto, thirteen volumes,600 handcoloured plates by Keulemans, Gronvold, Goodchild and Green. Contemporary dark green morocco with gilt fillets and lozenge ornaments in spine compartments (except volume four); volume one with gilt stamped birds, a handsome crisp set, scarce in this condition. Gregory Macalister Mathews (1876-1949) was born into a wealthy New South Wales grazing family. He settled in England at the turn of the century and over the next 40 years, with the help of his secretary Tom Iredale into the 1920's, he devoted his life to Australian ornithology. His contribution to Australian ornithology, particularly taxonomy, is profound and at times controversial. Birds of Australia is the last of the great colour-plate bird books and one of the most ambitious bird books ever published. Along with Gould's Birds of Australia 1840-1869 and A. J. North's Nests and Eggs 1904-1914 Mathew's The Birds of Australia is fundamental to Australian ornithology. Anker 328; Nissen IVB 605; Nissen SVB 329; Whittell pp. 488-504: Wood p.454; Zimmer p. 419.

        Mosquitoes

      New York: Boni and Liveright, 1927 First edition, first printing. One of 3,047 copies. Publisher's navy cloth, lettered in pale yellow, pictorial blue endpapers with floral vine pattern in white. Near fine, with some minor rubbing to the extremities, otherwise fresh binding, bookseller's plate to the rear pastedown, otherwise fresh interior. A handsome copy. Peterson A4.1a. The author's second novel, Mosquitoes is a satirical text about the New Orleans literary and artistic communities in the early 20th century. Specifically, it tells the story of a group of artists and poets, representing a wide range of skills and personalities, who have embarked on a yachting excursion hosted by Mrs. Patricia Maurier, a widowed and aging patron of the arts. Mosquitoes is divided into six chapters, with one chapter dedicated to each of the four days of the yachting trip as well as a prologue and epilogue. Throughout the novel, Faulkner describes the characters' interactions with one another with underlying themes of sexuality, all the while exploring his overarching theme of the artist's role in society. A semi-autobiographical novel, Mosquitoes was decidedly influenced by Faulkner's life in New Orleans as an aspiring writer, and, its focus on the role of artist in society clearly reflects Faulkner's determination to define himself as a young author.. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        Ulysses [Pirate Edition of Ulysses - bowdlerized and published in Two Worlds Monthly by its editor Samuel Roth] - Complete set of all 11 publsihed issues.

      New York, Two Worlds Publishing Company, 1926 - 1927. - Octavo. Pagination: Issues I - IV: 498 pages, Issue V - VIII: 476 pages, Issue IX - XI: 210 pages. Original Softcover wrappers. Very good + / Near Fine - condition with only minor signs of external wear. Two chips to spines only. Wonderful example of this unusual set. Samuel Roth must be seen as one of the most persistant but highly interesting violator's of publishing rights and distributor of obscene materials during the 1920's to 1950's, a difficult time for these kind of endeavours. His most famous clash with the law happened in 1927, when Sylvia Beach was pressed by James Joyce to stop Roth printing excerpts from Ulysses. Famously Roth not only caved but also published "An Offer to James Joyce" in the last installment of his short-lived periodical, anticipating the injunction that was to end his enterprise in 1927. The injunction was a result of Sylvia Beach's success in mobilizing an international protest, signed by 167 international artists and writers, which was porinted in another famous periodical (Transition). In "An Offer to James Joyce" Samuel Roth wrote: "Whether it is really true, or whether is its merely a survival of his old Dublin habits (schnorrerei in both worlds being mostly the same), Mr.Joyce tells everyone who comes to see him in Paris that he is in need of money. If Mr.Joyce is really in need of money, it is here in New York waiting for him, provided he is willing to make one public appearance to answer my charges against him for his conduct in the matter of my publication of his Ulysses in 'Two worlds Monthly'. Two thousand five hundred dollars has been posted with my attorney, Mr.Nathan M. Padgug, of Padgug, Tarlowe & Flatow, 17 John Street, to pay for Mr. Joyce's way to and from New York, to accommodate him in a first-class New York Hotel and to provide him with a thousand dollars in cash after his public appearance. If Mr.Joyce was not really responsible, as has been suggested possible, for the actions of Sylvia Beach and his other friends, particularly in the publication of the spurious much-signed protest, he owes me and the world this explanation. And if after he has heard what i have to say he still believes that the attitude of his friends did justice to him and to me, it is important that he should make public confession of it, too. Here is an opportunity for Mr.Joyce to get a trip to New York, dine with the Van Dorens, see the Woolworth Building, and get a thousand dollars in cash besides. I have cabled this offer to him, giving him all summer, if he wants it, to consider the matter. Meanwhile, I would like to point out that Mr. Joyce is a celebrated example of what an indiscriminate contemporary adulation can do to even a writer of such promise as Mr. Joyce. I submit to the sober judgment of mankind that, since the writing of Ulysses, Mr.Joyce has ceased functioning as an artist. To the best evidence possible, his most recent writings, he has succumbed into a state of semi-conscious demoniacism in which he is both conscious of his own mental waywardness and of the ludicrous gullibility of his friends who pretend to discern in the gibberish I reproduce in 'Two Worlds Quarterly'[sic] the birth of a new art. Frankly, I have even given up readning proof of the matter. But one of his crony-critics, writing in the current number of 'Transition', suggests that Mr.Joyce has demonstrated conclusivelyin this new unnamed work, in which thirteen modern and ancient languages are made use of, the inadequacy of one language for the expression of modern thought. If we should ever be crazy enough to follow this line of thinking, we will soon see sculptors mixing brass with theirmarble, painters pasting wooden bridges on their reproductions of the Thames, and novelists returning to the eighteenth century habit of illustrating their bedroom scenes with wall paper [all of these happened since, the Editor]. There is a man writing fearfully after eating. One would say that he has einter eaten very bad food of th

It includes "Tanhuser and the Gods," one of the finest humorous fantasies, "Winthrop's Adventure," "The Virgin of the Seven Daggers," and two others, as well as a long, interesting introduction on the sources for the stories. Lee's weird fiction earned the praise of Montague Summers, who equated her talent to that of M. R. James. "Lee's stories are really in a category by themselves. Intelligent, amusingly ironic, imaginative, original, they deserve more than the passing attention that they have attracted." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, pp. 256-57.

        Ulysses

      Paris, Shakespeare and Company, 1927 9th Printing. Hardback, modern rebinding in half dark blue morocco leather to spine and marbled paper boards. Black spine label lettered in gilt, with raised and gilt banding and gilt decorations to spine, gilt ruled edges to boards. Original blue paper wrappers bound inside. In very good condition. Modern rebinding with new endpapers. Some darkening and dark spots to original wrappers. Small label to bottom of title page “Goethebuchandlung, Berlin”. Some minor rubbing and darkening to page edges, a couple of minor spots, else pages very clean and tight throughout. ---- At the outset of the First World War, Joyce moved with his family to Zürich, where Lenin and the Dadaist Tristan Tzara had found their refuge. In Zürich Joyce started to develop the early chapters of Ulysses, which was first published in France because of censorship troubles in the Great Britain and the United States, where the book became legally available 1933. The theme of jealousy was based partly on a story a former friend of Joyce told: he claimed that he had been sexually intimate with the author's wife, Nora, even while Joyce was courting her. The book, which takes place on one day in Dublin (June 16, 1904) and reflected the classic work of Homer (fl. 9th or 8th century BC?), gained immediate success. The main characters are Leopold Bloom, a Jewish advertising canvasser, his wife Molly, and Stephen Dedalus, the hero from Joyce's earlier novel Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. They are intended to be modern counterparts of Telemachus, Ulysses, and Penelope. The story, using stream-of-consciousness technique, parallel the major events in Odysseus' journey home. The famous Sirens are barmaids. However, Bloom's adventures are less heroic and his homecoming less spectacular. The paths of Stephen and Bloom cross and recross through the day. Bloom makes his trip to the underworld by attending a funeral at Glasnevin Cemetary. "We are praying now for the repose of his soul. Hoping you're well and not in hell. Nice change of air. Out of the fryingpan of life into the fire of purgatory." 735 pp.

        MR. BALCONY

Half-title; publisher's original navy blue boards; spine lettered in gilt; points of corners slightly rubbed; top and tail a bit bumped; inside clean, no spots or marks of any kind; a fine and solid copy. Kitchin, born in Yorkshire, was a best-selling crime writer as well as a writer of literary fiction. Mr. Balcony is his second novel, described by William Reynolds in the Dictionary of Literary Biography as a novel that "combines brilliant wit with serious underlying intentions" as in the case with Mr. Balcony which "conceals terror beneath a meticulously described surface". The main character of Mr. Balcony travels to Africa on a yacht where he manages to murder one passenger, impregnate and marry another, before landing on the mainland and becoming involved with the indigenous peoples who eventually (spoiler alert!) castrate him.

Illustrated with maps, portraits, views and other engravings. England became inhabited more than 800,000 years ago, as the discovery of flint tools and footprints at Happisburgh in Norfolk has revealed. The earliest evidence for early modern humans in North West Europe, a jawbone discovered in Devon at Kents Cavern in 1927, was re-dated in 2011 to between 41,000 and 44,000 years old. Continuous human habitation in England dates to around 13,000 years ago (see Creswellian), at the end of the last glacial period. The region has numerous remains from the Mesolithic, Neolithic, and Bronze Age, such as Stonehenge and Avebury. In the Iron Age, England, like all of Britain south of the Firth of Forth, was inhabited by the Celtic people known as the Britons, including some Belgic tribes (e.g. the Atrebates, the Catuvellauni, the Trinovantes, etc.) in the south east. In AD 43 the Roman conquest of Britain began the Romans maintained control of their province of Britannia until the early 5th century. The end of Roman rule in Britain facilitated the Anglo-Saxon settlement of Britain, which historians often regard as the origin of England and of the English people. The Anglo-Saxons, a collection of various Germanic peoples, established several kingdoms that became the primary powers in present-day England and parts of southern Scotland. They introduced the Old English language, which largely displaced the previous British language. The Anglo-Saxons warred with British successor states in Wales, Cornwall, and the Hen Ogledd (Old North the Brythonic-speaking parts of northern England and southern Scotland), as well as with each other. Raids by Vikings became frequent after about AD 800, and the Norsemen settled in large parts of what is now England. During this period, several rulers attempted to unite the various Anglo-Saxon kingdoms, an effort that led to the emergence of the Kingdom of England by the 10th century. Under the Tudors and the later Stuart dynasty, England became a world colonial power. During the rule of the Stuarts, the English Civil War took place between the Parliamentarians and the Royalists, which resulted in the execution of King Charles I (1649) and the establishment of a series of republican governments first, a Parliamentary republic known as the Commonwealth of England (1649-1653), then a military dictatorship under Oliver Cromwell known as The Protectorate (1653-1659). The Stuarts returned to the restored throne in 1660, though continued questions over religion and power resulted in the deposition of another Stuart king, James II, in the Glorious Revolution (1688). England, which had conquered Wales in the 13th century, united with Scotland in 1707 to form a new sovereign state called Great Britain. Following the Industrial Revolution, Great Britain ruled a worldwide Empire, the largest in recorded history. Following a process of decolonisation in the 20th century, mainly caused by the weakening of Great Britain's power in the two World Wars, almost all of the empire's overseas territories became independent countries. However, as of 2017, its cultural impact remains widespread and deep in many of them. (Wikipedia).

        Autograph of "Jafsie" in Haptmann Trial of the Lindbergh Kidnapping Case

      Rand Kardex Service Corp Bronx 1927 - Original 6 by 4 inch bank signature card, signed by Condon. During this time, John F. Condon, a well-known Bronx personality and retired school teacher, wrote a letter to the Bronx Home News,offering $1,000 if the kidnapper would turn the child over to a Catholic priest. John F. Condon received a letter reportedly written by the kidnappers. It authorized Condon to be their intermediary with Lindbergh. Lindbergh accepted the letter as genuine. Following the latest letter's instructions, Condon placed a classified ad in the New York American reading: "Money is Ready. Jafsie". Condon then waited for further instructions from the culprits. A meeting between "Jafsie" and a representative of the group that claimed to be the kidnappers was eventually scheduled for late one evening at Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx. According to Condon, the man sounded foreign but stayed in the shadows during the conversation, and he was thus unable to get a close look at his face. The man said his name was John, and he related his story: he was a "Scandinavian" sailor, part of a gang of three men and two women. The baby was being held on a boat, unharmed, but would be returned only for ransom. When Condon expressed doubt that "john" actually had the baby, he promised some proof: the kidnapper would soon return the baby's sleeping suit. The stranger asked Condon, ". would I 'burn' [be executed], if the package [i.e. the baby] were dead?" When questioned further, he assured Condon that the baby was alive.On March 16, Condon received a toddler's sleeping suit by mail, and a seventh ransom note. After Lindbergh identified the sleeping suit, Condon placed a new ad in the Home News: "Money is ready. No cops. No secret service. I come alone, like last time." On April 1, Condon received a letter saying it was time for the ransom to be delivered. The ransom was packaged in a wooden box that was custom-made in the hope that it could later be identified. The ransom money included a number of gold certificates - gold certificates were about to be withdrawn from circulation, and it was hoped this would draw attention to anyone spending them. The bills were not marked but their serial numbers were recorded. Some sources credit this idea to Frank J. Wilson, others to Elmer Lincoln Irey. On April 2, Condon was given a note by an unknown cab driver.[further explanation needed] Condon met "John" and told him that they had been able to raise only $50,000. The man accepted the money and gave Condon a note saying that the child was in the care of two innocent women. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Pearse Hutchinson.

      Original Photograph on archival paper. Image: 20 cm x 30 cm / Framed: 38,5 cm x 48,5 cm. From the library and personal archive of irish photographer John Minihan. Titled and signed by John Minihan verso. Beautifully framed. Pearse Hutchinson (1927 14 January 2012) was an Irish poet, broadcaster and translator. Hutchinson was born in Glasgow. His father, Harry Hutchinson, a Scottish printer whose own father had left Dublin to find work in Scotland, was Sinn Féin treasurer in Glasgow and was interned in Frongoch in 191921. His mother, Cathleen Sara, was born in Cowcaddens, Glasgow, of emigrant parents from Donegal. She was a friend of Constance Markievicz. In response to a letter from Cathleen, Éamon de Valera found work in Dublin for Harry as a clerk in the Labour Exchange, and later he held a post in Stationery Office. Pearse was five years old when the family moved to Dublin, and was the last to be enrolled in St. Enda's School before it closed. He then went to school at the Christian Brothers, Synge Street where he learnt Irish and Latin. One of his close friends there was the poet and literary critic John Jordan. In 1948 he attended University College Dublin where he spent a year and a half, learning Spanish and Italian. Having published some poems in The Bell in 1945, his poetic development was greatly influenced by a 1950 holiday in Spain and Portugal. A short stop en route at Vigo brought him into contact for the first time with the culture of Galicia. Later, in Andalusia, he was entranced by the landscape and by the works of the Spanish poets Lorca, Prados and Cernuda: "That early September of 1950," he would later write, "the light walked for me as it never had before, and I walked through the light I'd always longed for". In 1951 he left Ireland again, determined to go and live in Spain. Unable to get work in Madrid, as he had hoped, he travelled instead to Geneva, where he got a job as a translator with the International Labour Office, which brought him into contact with Catalan exiles, speaking a language then largely suppressed in Spain. An invitation by a Dutch friend led to a visit to the Netherlands, in preparation for which he taught himself Dutch. He returned to Ireland in 1953, and he became interested in the Irish language poetry of writers such as Piaras Feiritéar and Aonghus Fionn Ó Dálaigh, and published a number of poems in Irish in the magazine Comhar in 1954. The same year he travelled again to Spain, this time to Barcelona, where he learnt the Catalan and Galician languages, and got to know Catalan poets such as Salvador Espriu and Carles Riba. With the British poet P. J. Kavanagh, he organised a reading of Catalan poetry in the British Institute. He went home to Ireland in 1957 but returned to Barcelona in 1961, and continued to support Catalan poets. An invitation by the publisher Joan Gili to translate some poems by Josep Carner led to the publication of his first book, a collection of thirty of Carner's poems in Catalan and English, in 1962. A project to publish Hutchinson's translation of Espriu's La Pell de brau (The Bull-skin), fell through some years later. Some of the poems from this project are included in the collection Done into English. In 1963, his first collection of original poems in English, Tongue Without Hands (the title a quotation from the Spanish epic El Cid), was published by Dolmen Press in Ireland. In 1967, having spent nearly ten years altogether in Spain, Hutchinson returned to Ireland, making a living as a poet and journalist writing in both Irish and English. In 1968, a collection of poems in Irish, Faoistin Bhacach (A Lame Confession), was published. Expansions, a collection in English, followed in 1969. Friend Songs (1970) was a new collection of translations, this time of medieval poems originally written in Galaicoportuguese. In 1972 Watching the Morning Grow, a new collection of original poems in English, came out, followed in 1975 by another, The Frost Is All Over. In October 1971, Hutchinson took up the Gregory Fellowship in Poetry at the University of Leeds, on the recommendation of Professor A. Norman Jeffares. There was some controversy around the appointment following accusations, later retracted, that Jeffares had been guilty of bias in the selection because of their joint Irish heritage. Hutchinson held tenure at the University for three years, and during that time contributed to the University's influential poetry magazine Poetry & Audience one edition of the magazine, devoted entirely to his poetry, was published as a limited edition. From 1977 to 1978 he compiled and presented Oró Domhnaigh, a weekly radio programme of Irish poetry, music and folklore for Ireland's national network, RTÉ. He also contributed a weekly column on the Irish language to the station's magazine RTÉ Guide for over ten years. 1981 saw the publication of another translated collection: this time a collaboration with Melita Cataldi, of Old Irish lyrics into Italian. Another collection in English, Climbing the Light (1985), which also included translations from Irish, Italian and Galician, was followed in 1989 by his last Irish collection, Le Cead na Gréine (By Leave of the Sun). The Soul that Kissed the Body (1990) was a selection of his Irish poems translated into English. His most recent English collection was Barnsley Main Seam (1995) the long title poem celebrates the splendours of York Minster, and is a homage to the manual workers of the world. His Collected Poems were published in 2002 to mark his 75th birthday. This was followed in 2003 by Done into English, a selection of many of the translated works he produced over the years it contains translations of more than sixty poets from over a dozen languages or dialects, including Catalan, Italian, Dutch, Milanese and Irish. 'Every poem in this book has been translated because I liked it', he explained. A co-editor and founder of the literary journal Cyphers, he received the Butler Award for Irish writing in 1969. He is a member of Aosdána, the state-supported association of artists, from which he received a cnuas (stipend) to allow him to go on writing. He has described this as "a miracle and a godsend": "I was fifty-four when I was invited to become a member and frankly I was at the end of my tether. I might have carried on, but I would have been in the gutter because I would have been evicted or I would have gone mad or killed myself or both." A two-day symposium of events was held at Trinity College Dublin, to celebrate his 80th birthday in 2007, with readings from his works by writers including Macdara Woods, Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin, Paul Durcan and Sujata Bhatt.[4] In his most recent collection, At Least for a While (2008), which was shortlisted for the Poetry Now Award, he comments on the replacement of the traditional symbolism of Ireland with the Celtic Tiger: "Music and a small plant/ we had for emblems once./ Better, surely,/ than lion or eagle./ Now our proudest boast/ is a dangerous beast of prey." He lived in Rathgar, Dublin, and died on 14 January 2012. Hutchinson's 'unique achievements resist neat classification', writes Michael Kenneally. 'When he writes of privilege and opportunism Hutchinson leaves no aftertaste of self-righteousness'. The Irish Times has described him as 'one of Ireland's most inventive, instructive, and perennially newsworthy poets. ... His poems are often short, they can appear delicate on the page, and they sometimes seem to record glimpses or passing glances, but they always embody and, at their best, articulate Hutchinson's desire for what he once called "true gentleness".'
