        24 [Vierundzwanzig] Stunden aus dem Leben [Twenty-four hours in the life of a woman] (Typescript of novel, with corrections by Lil Dagover)

      N.p.: N.p.. Bound carbon typescript of Stefan Zweig's 1927 novella, made for the purpose of use by German actress Lil Dagover for her reading of same for the 1963 German LP, "Lil Dagover spricht Stefan Zweig." Dagover's name is in blue holograph ink on the front board, then again with her German address on the front endpaper, then only her name once again on the title page. With Dagover's holograph corrections to the text on virtually every recto, and, when a rewrite of a passage was required, on the verso to the of a given typescript passage on the recto. Typescript is accompanied by the resulting recording by Dagover, the original German issue by Deustsche Grammophon, released in 1963. One of the most famous works by Zweig, an Austrian Jew who was a passionate collector of autograph manuscripts, maintained close friendships with the likes of Sigmund Freud and Richard Strauss, and whose prose took on the dual concerns of daily life and the impact of politics on everyday people. This novella is an outwardly simple drama of a single day in a woman's life, an English widow who becomes uncontrollably attracted to a gambling diplomat during an evening in Monte Carlo. She is quickly reeled into his very troubled life, and realizes her error too late. The novella was adapted to film in 1931, 1944, 1952, and 1968, and most recently in 2002, with the most notable among these adaptations is Max Ophuls' first American film, "Letter from an Unknown Woman" (1948), starring Joan Fontaine and Louis Jourdan. Pages Near Fine, binding three quarter leather and decorated paper covered boards, with no titling, Very Good plus.

        The Nan Britton Papers: An Archive of Letters, Typescripts, and Documents (including personal copies of The President's Daughter)

      (California). 1927-1982. An important archive of papers belonging to Nan Britton, author of the sensational tell-all bestseller of 1927: The President's Daughter (in which she named Warren Harding the father of her illegitimate daughter and described their nearly seven years long affair in great detail), and an early champion for the cause of securing legal rights for unwed mothers and their illegitimate children. The archive contains personal and professional correspondence, several unpublished and annotated working typescripts, and Britton's personal copies of The President's Daughter (including a first edition copy with a pagination error and missing pages, likely resulting from when the Society for the Suppression of Vice seized the printer's plates and printed sheets), and of her second book Honesty or Politics. The collection consists of about one linear foot of material housed by Britton into file folders and stationery boxes with her explanatory manuscript and typed notes.The collection documents Britton's life-long crusade for justice on behalf of children born out of wedlock, and to support her claim (only now confirmed by DNA testing in 2015), that Harding had fathered her daughter Elizabeth Ann shortly before his election as President in 1920. Included are special selected letters from Eleanor Roosevelt, Alfred Kinsey, Bertha Van Hoosen, Clarence Darrow, and several leading figures in child welfare legislation, along with 100 letters, mostly from women, who were inspired by The President's Daughter to tell of their own personal experience of having an illegitimate child and the ensuing social stigma they had to contend with. Also included is a separate folder of letters and ephemera from the radio celebrities The McDowell Sisters (known as "Sweethearts of the Air"), who befriended Britton and Elizabeth Ann after they read the book.Included among the unpublished typescripts are two complete variant versions of Her Father's Daughter: The Life Story of Maria Malibran (each totaling nearly 600 pages), Britton's biography of the celebrated opera singer Malibran, perhaps the most famous woman of the 19th century to have an illegitimate child. Also among the typescripts is the only known copy of Stories by Britton's daughter Elizabeth Ann (consisting of about 40 stories from 1928), several chapters from Britton's unpublished autobiography: Stony Limits, and two of Britton's unfinished historical surveys of bastardy: A Thousand Years of Trial and Error: the politics that have perpetuated illegitimacy and The Prehistoric Mother: and the emergence of the "illegitimate" child. Other shorter transcripts include: The Illegitimate Child, and An Open Letter to Mr. Ashley Montagu in which Britton disputes Montagu's radical theory (made in his 1969 book: Sex, Man & Society) that the birth control pill will provide the basis for the humanization of the male.A historically important and compelling archive of papers belonging to Nan Britton, who scandalized the country with her account of carnal adventures in the White House, and which TIME critic Robert Plunket has recently declared to be "a true American classic, the first modern political tell-all and a book of inestimable importance when it comes to our country's gender wars." A detailed list of the archive is available upon request. .

        Revolt in the Desert.

      London: Jonathan Cape,, 1927. Quarto. Original quarter brown pigskin on sand buckram, title gilt to spine, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Coloured portrait frontispiece, 10 coloured plates, 8 black and white plates, folding map at rear. A little rubbing to spine ends; an excellent, bright copy. Large paper issue of the first edition, limited to 315 numbered copies, of which 300 were for sale; this copy is number 140. The costs for production of the 1926 Seven Pillars of Wisdom had ballooned to such an extent that Lawrence was contemplating selling either his library or some of his property to clear the debt. Eventually he settled on the publication of an abridgement, undertaken in 1926 by Lawrence himself with the help of some of his fellow servicemen, an earlier attempt by Edward Garnett having been set aside. Published in March 1927 in Great Britain and America, in both limited and general issues, three impressions were soon sold out and two more quickly added. The profits from this publication made the fortunes of the Cape publishing house.

        The Most Select Excellent and Dauntless Company of Archers

      Kibbo Kift, London 1927 - Four page signed by Raymond J Dixon - ornately produced. The organisation was founded by the charismatic Englishman John Hargrave (aka 'White Fox'), artist, author and Boy Scout Commissioner for Woodcraft and Camping, who had become disenchanted with the increasingly militaristic tendency in the Scout movement after World War I. Hargrave was promptly expelled from the Scouts by Scout founder Robert Baden-Powell. With a small group of like-minded, dissident, anti-war Scoutmasters and Scoutmistresses under his own direct leadership, he set about building an alternative and very different movement. Baden-Powell expelled Hargrave with extreme reluctance, and only after some wealthy backers had threatened to withdraw funding from the Scouts unless he was expelled. The Kibbo Kift (archaic Kentish dialect for 'proof of great strength'[2]) has been described as 'the only genuine English national movement of modern times' and was certainly very different from Baden-Powell's Boy Scouts. Based on the woodcraft principles of naturalist Ernest Thompson Seton that had been a key part of the early Scout programme, the Kibbo Kift was to be not merely a youth organisation but was to involve all ages and, very daring for the times, it was open to both sexes. The ideas of world peace and the regeneration of urban man through the open-air life replaced the nationalism and militarism Hargrave had detested in the post-World War I Scouts. Kinsmen and women were organised in Clans, Tribes and Lodges. Each individual took a 'woodcraft name', inspired by their ideas of 'Indian-style' names. The correct costume had to be hand-made by each individual or 'rooftree' (family group) and while the everyday 'habit' of Saxon hood, jerkin, shorts and long cloak must have seemed outlandish enough in the English countryside of the early 1920s; for ceremonial occasions, brilliantly coloured surcoats or silk-embroidered robes were worn by the various office-holders such as the Tallykeeper, Campswarden, Ritesmaster and Gleeman. Hargrave himself was 'Head Man' and his leadership was dynamic, inspirational and frankly autocratic. The Mark of the Kindred of the Kibbo Kift is typical of the symbolism that can be seen in many of their designs. Its meaning is: Worship (The K sign) Forever (the Circle of Unity and Eternity) Life (the Flame) through Knowledge (the Tree). Or again, ‘Worship Life Forever with Knowledge’. The Kibbo Kift's central activities of hiking and camping were refined and elevated to the level of a spiritual exercise. The weekend 'Tribal' Camps and the great annual 'Althing' were marked by colourful and impressive ritual, inspired by their ideas of what Native American ceremonies might be like, but couched in language reminiscent of the Norse Sagas and rich in Saxon archaisms. Kinsmen were not only required to make their own lightweight, one-man hiking tents (the first seen in England) but to decorate them with vivid, symbolic designs of their own devising. Influenced by Hargrave's own artistic taste, an ultra-modern 'futurist' style of design became general, and the robes, regalia, tents and other items of decorative art, often of an extremely high standard, represent an extraordinary 'democratisation' of the avant-garde art of the day. The Kibbo Kift were never more than a few hundred strong. Kinsmen and Kinswomen included the Suffragettes Emmeline Pethick Lawrence, Mary Neal and May Billinghurst, the journalist Henry Nevinson, the photographer Angus McBean, and Ruth Clark. The Advisory Committee included Havelock Ellis, Maurice Maeterlinck, the Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore, H. G. Wells and Professor Julian Huxley. D. H. Lawrence took an interest in the Kindred and it has been suggested that Mellors in Lady Chatterley's Lover is based on an archetypal Kinsman. The growth of the Kibbo Kift was not without its setbacks. In 1924, the South London co-operative lodges challenged Hargrave's leadership, and seceded from the movement. They established thei [Attributes: First Edition]

      Vingt-sept illustrations dessinées et gravées à l'eau-forte en couleurs et en noir par Gaston Bussière, nombreuses lettres ornées en couleurs et or, un des 350 exemplaires sur beau vélin teinté d'Arches, contenant un état de toutes les illustrations, numéroté et paraphé par l'éditeur, 1 vol. grand in-8 reliure demi-maroquin à coins bordeaux, dos à 4 nerfs orné et mosaïqué, tête dorée, couv. et dos conservés, reliure signée de Semet et Plumelle, Librairie des Amateurs, A. Ferroud, F. Ferroud successeur, 1927, 130 pp. Exemplaire parfait, d'une beauté tout à fait exceptionnelle. L'illustrateur Gaston Bussière atteint ici à l'apogée de son talent, et la splendide reliure de Semet & Plumelle lui procure un écrin à sa mesure. Un feuillet inséré par Ferroud précise : "En raison du décès accidentel de Gaston Bussière, qui dessinait et gravait lui-même ses planches, il n'y en aura que trois. Par déférence pour la mémoire de l'artiste, nous avons préféré qu'aucun nom ne vint s'ajouter à son nom. Simplement, à la place des deux eaux-fortes manquant, on trouvera, à la fin du volume, la reproduction de deux croquis [ ... ] Abeille est l'oeuvre principale de Gaston Bussière. Nous la jugeons d'un ensemble remarquable, notre regretté Bussière étant, parmi nos illustrateurs, l'un des plus délicats, des plus consciencieux et des plus savants". Conte classique, Abeille évoque l'aventure de la petite fille de la duchesses des Clarides, élevée avec le fils de la comtesse de Blanchelande. Abeille sera enlevée par Loc, le roi des Nains, et Georges retenu par la reine des Ondines, mais leur amour triomphera des embûches.
