        THE FINANCIER: A Novel

      New York:: Boni & Liveright,. 1927.. A completely revised edition of his third book. INSCRIBED, "For Brills son Edmund from Theodore Dreiser 1928." The first of the trilogy on Frank Cowperwood, a financier and businessman during an epic period of American history, from the Civil War through the end of the century. Dreiser based the character on Charles T. Yerkes, a traction magnate who had a well-documented and colorful career as an organizer of companies, an art collector and womanizer. Dreiser is still considered a trailblazer in our literature for his honest treatment of American life and the vagaries of human nature. The latter, of course, caused him many problems with the critics of the time. The book is a little cocked and cover has a small mark on bottom right corner, otherwise very good to fine, clean, bright copy. Lacking dust jacket. .

      Henri Floury, Paris 1927 - 245 x 192 mm (9 1/2 x 7 1/2"). 84, [2], pp., [1] leaf (colophon). No. 270 OF 274 COPIES on vélin d'Arches (of a total edition of 302). Publisher's color illustrated wrappers, original glassine. With 76 illustrations including wrapper image by André Hellé, hand colored in gouache via pochoir stenciling by J. Saudé. Half-inch joint split at spine head and tail, mild edgewear, glassine with many small chips to spine and edges, but AN EXTREMELY APPEALING COPY, the fragile book quite solid, and internally quite clean, fresh, and bright, with very rich coloring. Illustrated with great charm in vivid colors, this volume is comprised of two Loti stories that harken back to his childhood in the city of Saint Pierre on Oléron, an island off France's Atlantic coast. "House of Grandmothers" and "Miss Anna, A Very Humble Doll" are memoirs intended for children of all ages. "Pierre Loti" is the pseudonym for Julien Viaud (1850-1923), who wrote popular novels at the same time that he was a career officer in the French navy. He was known for incorporating material from his life and details from the exotic places he visited to give his novels deep levels of emotion and authenticity. Inspired by Monet, he endeavored to write as the Impressionists painted. Contemporary critic Edmund Gosse said that "at his best Pierre Loti was unquestionably the finest descriptive writer of the day. In the delicate exactitude with which he reproduced the impression given to his own alert nerves by unfamiliar forms, colors, sounds and perfumes, he was without a rival. But he was not satisfied with this exterior charm; he desired to blend with it a moral sensibility of the extremest refinement, at once sensual and ethereal." Artist André Hellé produced humorous illustrations for all the leading French periodicals during the first half of the 20th century. Though famed as a theater set designer, he illustrated many books, most of which, as here, were inspired by childhood. This endearing but fragile book has, not surprisingly, become quite rare in the marketplace, and it is remarkably so in the original glassine. No. 270 OF 274 COPIES on vélin d'Arches (of a total edition of 302). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      New York: Brentano's, 1927. No. 66 OF 600 COPIES of the American Edition n. Hardcover. 337 x 261 mm (13 1/4 x 10 1/4"). 127, [1] pp., [1] leaf (colophon). No. 66 OF 600 COPIES of the American Edition. Publisher's ivory paper boards backed with linen, upper cover with color vignette by Bakst. In the scarce original pictorial dust jacket. Housed in a modern cloth slipcase. With woodcut headpieces and decorative initials, and WITH 42 PLATES, comprised of 20 full-page hand-colored plates heightened with gold or silver, nine full-page black and white plates, one magenta full-page plate, and 12 mounted or tipped-on color plates (with tissue guards), all reproducing works by Bakst. Dust jacket panels a bit toned and lightly foxed, jacket spine with thumb-sized portion missing and front joint partly torn, but the covers and spine of the volume itself in fine condition. Contents beginning to come loose (though still intact) because of perishing gutta percha, some offsetting from illustrations without tissue guards, but the text very fresh, and the vibrantly colored plates clean and pleasing. Rarely found in general and particularly with dust jacket, this is a vividly illustrated survey of the art of Léon Bakst, Russian painter and stage designer (see previous entry). The accompanying essays in the book are: "The Art of Bakst" by Valerian Svietlov (pseudonym of V. I. Ivchenko); "Leo Bakst, Renovator of the Modern Art" by Louis Réau; "Considerations of Leo Bakst's Art" by Denis Roche; and "Leo Bakst Illustrator of Music" by André Tessier. ABPC records only five copies at auction since 1976, each with major condition issues, two of them in the visually memorable dust jacket (depicting a Harlequin-esque character carrying a swooning Colombina under his left arm like a sack of brightly-colored potatoes).

        International Protest

      Paris: 2 February,, 1927. Folio, single leaf. A lightly creased, clean sheet. French text of the protest against Samuel Roth's piracy of Ulysses in Two Worlds Monthly. Joyce, frustrated by the slow-moving legal proceedings against Roth, had this protest drawn up, which he revised. More than 167 literary and cultural figures added their names to the protest, including Wyndham Lewis, E. M, Forster, Albert Einstein, Ernest Hemingway, W. B. Yeats, D. H. Lawrence, Virigina Woolf, and T. S. Eliot. It was released to the press on Joyce's birthday, and later reprinted in the April 1927 issue of Transition. The protest turned Roth into a literary pariah but failed to restrain him from printing more instalments. The injunction which Joyce won against Roth on 28 December 1928 only managed to put a temporary stop to his activities: the following year he published a piracy of the novel under the fictitious imprint of "Shakespeare and Company, Paris 1927". This unauthorised edition, effectively the first American edition, was later used as a template by Random House for their 1934 edition, which remained the standard edition in the US until 1961.

        Depero Futurista

      1927. DEPERO, Fortunato. Depero Futurista. 118 ff., printed on various paper stocks, of which some are coloured; most versos blank. Illustrated with 28 halftone plates in text, 2 in colour. Line-block illustrations and typographic designs throughout, many printed in red and black. Oblong 4to., 245 x 322 mm, bound in flexible blue boards, printed in black and white, secured with massive metal bolts, as issued. Preserved in cloth box. Milano/ New York/ Paris/ Berlin: Edizione Italiana Dinamo Azari, 1927. Depero's famous "Futurist bolted book," from his own design, is an anthology of his theatrical and commercial designs from 1913 to 1927, long regarded as one of the avant-garde masterpieces in the history of the book-object. "Depero Futurista exemplifies many of the Futurist innovations: witty typographical effects, the use of colored inks and decorated paper, and the brilliant idea of dynamo binding, making the book seem like a machine" (Jentsch). "[This] book Is Mechanical, bolted like a motor, Dangerous, can constitute a projectile weapon. Unclassifiable, cannot fit into a library with the other volumes. And therefore it is in its exterior form Original, Invasive, and Assaulting, like Depero and his art" (from the preface to the work). Stated limitation of 1000 numbered copies (never completed). Discreet ownership stamp on front free endpaper, and faint trace of ownership stamp on title-page. Overall, a fine copy. Jentsch, The Artist and the Book in twentieth Century Italy No. 177.

      Waltham St. Lawrence: Golden Cockerel Press, 1927. No. 22 OF 225 NUMBERED COPIES on paper (and six on vellum) n. Hardcover. 318 x 203 mm (12 1/2 x 8"). xi, [i], 309, [1] pp., [2] (blank and colophon) leaves. Edited by Arundell Del Re. No. 22 OF 225 NUMBERED COPIES on paper (and six on vellum). Original publisher's patterned paper sides by Sangorski & Sutcliffe (stamp-signed on front pastedown), new replica spine of russet morocco with raised bands and gilt titling by Courtland Benson, top edge gilt, others untrimmed (sides with the dots in the paper pattern enhanced by a previous owner in a pleasing, scarcely noticeable manner). In a later suede-backed marbled paper slipcase. Pictorial woodcut borders to fore margins of every text page and FIVE FULL-PAGE WOOD ENGRAVINGS, all BY ERIC GILL. Section title pages with red or blue lettering. Occasional text initials in red or blue. Cave & Manson, pp. 50 ff.; Chanticleer 50; Gill 279; Ransom, p. 297. Light to moderate rubbing along edges, otherwise very fine, the expertly renewed binding entirely pleasing, and the text fresh, bright, and immaculate from first leaf to last. One of the finest books of the private press movement, this edition of "Troilus" represents an impressive combination of bookmaking materials, typography, illustration, and printing skill. As Cave & Manson says, the prospectus for this work invited a public to anticipate "'one of the most important productions of its kind since the days of the Kelmscott press.'" When the work appeared, "it showed this was a claim to be taken seriously. Gill produced some of his finest engravings for the book. The full-page illustrations showed his work at its best." The whimsical illustrated borders were the most widely discussed feature of the volume; the public was divided about them, as some thought them too naughty, but Gill and Gibbings were convinced of their value, and they were used again with great success in the Golden Cockerel "Canterbury Tales." Though the "Troilus" is generally considered to be the second most important book from the Press, its value is generally as high as any Golden Cockerel item, no doubt because it was issued in a very small press run--225 copies, as compared to 500 for the "Four Gospels," the magnum opus of the Press. The completed volume's modest print run sold out very quickly, and the "purchasers' pleasure was increased by seeing the book rapidly appreciate in value." (Cave & Manson) It has been a very popular book ever since.

        Autograph Quotation signed. In Amharic.

      [Paris]., 27. IX. 1927. - Folio. 1 page. On uncut wove paper, bearing the Schoellers-Parole blind embossed seal, margins uncut. The original autograph contribution of Bajironde Zallaku to the Committee of the World League for Peace (Ligue Mondiale pour la Paix), a remarkable organization formed in 1925 with close ties to the League of Nations. The Committee itself was composed of such notaries as Queen Elizabeth of Belgium, King Carol II of Romania, John D Rockefeller, Marie Curie, and Albert Einstein, who personally gathered the present manuscripts over the course of seven years (1925-32). Among the public figures who contributed to the project were dignitaries from the newly-created League of Nations' member states. "The League of Nations acts for peace and security for the whole world". With French inscription in his hand "Premier Deleguè de l'Empire d'Ethiopie, Bajironde Zallaka". Zallaka was the former Ethiopian Minister of Finance. - The Ethiopian Empire's relationship with the League of Nations is of particular interest during this period. In 1923 Haile Selassie I had secured entry into the League as the only remaining independent African state. In 1936 the Italian delegation withdrew from the League after their brutal invasion of Ethiopia, and Haile Selassie made his famed journey to Geneva to plead his country's case in person. Although the Empire was by now in Italian hands, Selassie's entry to the hall of the League of Nations was sympathetically accompanied by an introduction as "His Imperial Majesty, the Emperor of Ethiopia". His speech on the occasion, given amids the jeers of the Italian journalists present, is sometimes considered among the most stirring of the 20th century. Pax Mundi. Livre d'or de la paix. Enquete universelle de la Ligue mondiale pour la paix sous le haut patronage de son comite d'honneur avec l'approbation de la Societe des nations, du Bureau international du travail et de la Cour permanente de justice internationale. Geneve, Societe paxunis, 1932. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Photographic Atlas of Selected Regions of the Milky Way...

      Washington, DC: Carnegie Institution, 1927. FIRST EDITION, one of only 700 copies, of Barnard?s magnificent star atlas, containing the first photographs to show the structure of the Milky Way. Complete with 51 mounted silver prints (as issued) and 50 charts and tables. RARE. "The greatest photographic legacy of Barnard was his magnum opus: A Photographic Atlas of Selected Regions of the Milky Way To capture the Milky Way in all its glory, Edward Barnard used the Bruce photographic telescope of the Yerkes Observatory, Chicago. Finance for the telescope had been given to the University of Chicago by Miss Catherine W. Bruce. The Bruce telescope actually consisted of three individual tubes bound rigidly on the same mounting: two photographic telescopes of 10-inch and 6 1/4-inch aperture, and a 5-inch aperture visual telescope used for tracking (guiding) of the stars as the Earth rotates. The great importance of the photographic telescopes lay in their wide-field coverage; the 10-inch had a 50-inch focal length and, to quote Barnard, gave 'exquisite definition' over a field of about 7 degrees (or 14 full moons). The plate-holder for the 10-inch carried glass negative 12 inches square, while that for the 6 1/4-inch carried glass plates measuring 8 x 10 inches."The scale of the photographs secured with the 10-inch was exceptionally well adapted to revealing the structure of the Milky Way; every inch covered just over one degree of sky. George Ellery Hale, director of the Mount Wilson Solar Observatory owned by the Carnegie Institute of Washington, invited Barnard to Mount Wilson in 1905. A generous grant from Mr. J.D. Hooker of Los Angeles allowed Barnard to transport the Bruce telescope to the Mount Wilson site. Barnard secured forty of his fifty photographs for his Atlas, from one of the world's premier observing sites, in a period spanning February to September, 1905"The Atlas was completed by Edwin Frost, Director of the Yerkes Observatory in Chicago, and by Barnard's niece, Mary Calvert. Barnard had, however, personally examined 35 700 photographic prints to select only the best to feature in his Atlas, of which seven hundred were produced. The two volume Barnard Atlas is today an exceedingly rare jewel" (Block and Freeman, Shrouds of the Night).Provenance: With presentation inscription in each volume, ?To my friend Gust. Soderberg / With Compliments of John C. Deagan / Chicago December 16 1929 / [signed] John C. Deagan". John Calhoun Deagan (1851-1934), the founder of the J.C. Deagan Company, was, in addition to being an amateur astronomer, a noted musician and manufacturer who became a pioneer in developing scientific tuning mechanisms.Washington DC: Carnegie Institution, 1927. Oblong quarto (Vol 1: 11x11x1.25 inches; Vol 2: 11x10 x1.75 inches), original cloth; housed in custom box. Two volumes. With portrait frontispiece, plate of the Bruce Photographic Telescope, 51 mounted silver prints, 50 charts and tables. A few scratches and stray marks of soiling to cloth; a little rubbing to extremities. Offsetting from portrait (as always, even with the tissue guard). An outstanding copy of a book usually found ex-libris and in terrible condition. Very Good....

        The World Crisis: 1911-1914

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1927. First edition, seventh printing. Hardcover. This is a jacketed British first edition, seventh printing of the first volume of the Churchill's monumental history of the First World War, in which he played such a critical, controversial, and varied role. This volume covers the first four years Churchill spent as First Lord of the Admiralty, as well as the beginning of the war. Of The World Crisis, Frederick Woods wrote: "The volumes contain some of Churchill's finest writing, weaving the many threads together with majestic ease, describing the massive battles in terms which fitly combine relish of the literary challenge with an awareness of the sombre tragedy of the events." Churchill was in a special position to write this history, having served both in the Cabinet and on the Front. First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 until 1915, after the failure in the Dardanelles and the slaughter at Gallipoli, Churchill was scapegoated and forced to resign. He spent his political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Before war's end, Churchill was exonerated and rejoined the Government, but the stigma would linger. Churchill may have meant for his history of the First World War to clear his name, but his six volume masterwork far exceeds this purpose. Many consider the British edition aesthetically superior to the U.S., with its larger volumes and shoulder notes summarizing the subject of each page. Unfortunately, the original dust jackets are quite scarce and the smooth navy cloth of the British first editions proved quite susceptible to wear, the contents prone to spotting and toning. This copy approaches near fine condition in a very good plus dust jacket. This first edition, seventh printing was published in December 1927. Of note, the dust jacket spine, front panel, and front flap are identical to that of the first printing. The rear panel contains advertisements for the 1915 and 1916-1918 volumes, while the rear flap has 'Press Notices' for The World Crisis. The blue cloth binding is beautifully bright and clean with no scuffing and only trivial wear confined to spine ends and corners. The contents remain crisp and bright. We find no previous ownership marks. A few scattered spots are confined to the page edges, with no internal spotting observed. Differential toning to the endpapers corresponding to the dust jacket flaps confirms that this copy has spent life jacketed. The dust jacket is highly complete, with only trivial loss to the spine ends and corners and a moderately toned spine. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.
