      Paris: Gallimard, 1927. First French Edition. First Impression, one of 850 numbered copies printed for le Amis de l'Edition Originale, this being copy no.343. Octavo; printed wrappers; 368 pages. Hint of sunning to spine, with a trace of light foxing scattered through the preliminary pages; majority of the signatures uncut; about Fine. Svevo self-published the novel in Italy in 1923, where it went largely unnoticed. The novel would likely have vanished into obscurity if it were not for the efforts of Svevo's friend James Joyce, who championed the work and, using his Parisian contacts, helped to have the novel translated into French and published by Gallimard in 1927. The French First precedes both English translations of the novel by three years. A superb copy of one of the great Italian novels of the last century, and reportedly Joyce's favorite book.

        The World Crisis: 1916-1918, Part II

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1927. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is a jacketed British first edition, first printing of the fourth volume of Churchill's history of the First World War, The World Crisis. Of The World Crisis, Churchill bibliographer 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. He served as 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. Rather remarkably, he spent part of 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. The events of the 1916-1918 volumes include Churchill's time at the Front and his return to the Cabinet. Many consider the British edition aesthetically superior to the U.S., with its larger volumes and shoulder notes summarizing the subject of each page. British first edition dust jackets are not only extremely scarce, but notoriously brittle, particularly those for the 1916-1918 volumes. Individual jacketed volumes are rarely seen or offered outside of full, six-volume sets. Here is a near fine first printing of 1916-1918, Part II in the correct, first printing dust jacket. The blue cloth boards remain unusually clean and free of scuffing, befitting a jacketed copy. The binding remains tight with sharp corners, bright spine gilt, and only trivial wear to corners and spine ends. We note a slight inward warp to the front cover. The contents remain crisp and bright with no previous ownership marks. The volume feels unread. Spotting is modest for the edition, primarily confined to the first and final leaves and the page edges. The first printing dust jacket shows shallow chipping to a maximum depth of 3/8 inch at the spine ends and edges. Shelf presentation is quite respectable, with an evenly-toned but otherwise clean dust jacket spine. A clean split all along the front hinge nearly disappears beneath the removable, archival quality clear dust jacket protector, as do partial splits at the flap folds. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A69.1(III-2).a, Woods/ICS A31(aa), Langworth p.103.

      1927. FRANKFURTER, Felix. THE CASE OF SACCO AND VANZETTI. Boston: Little, Brown, And Company. Small 8vo., yellow-orange cloth, titles stamped in black; 118 pages. First Edition. With a full-page typed letter signed from Frankfurter, dated June 1, 1927 and on Harvard Law School stationery, laid in, to "My dear Newcomb." Frankfurter states he remembers Newcomb "vividly and with pleasure." He thanks Newcomb for thinking of him in connection with "Mr. Schultz's review" which is "stimulating and provocative." "After all, injustices due to man's passions, even on the part of those who wield the criminal machinery, is not too unknown in history to make us too surprised at its recurrence. What is important, is how the community responds to the disclosure of such injustices after reason has had time to catch up with unreason. The one heartening aspect about the whole business is utterances like Mr. Schultz's, written by lawyers in different parts of the country. With relatively rare exceptions, our own bar has been either silent or hostile. The guild spirit, if nothing else, has leaned too heavily upon them." Frankfurter asks Newcomb to send his regards to Mr. Schultz "for putting so effectively the ideas and impulses so inadequately expressed in my book." Letter is very nice with usual mailing folds but no tears. There are several pencil notations (by Newcomb?) on the front pastedown with some additonal pencil notations in the book. Book is very good with minor soiling covers (contents clean & tight). $750.00.

In near fine condition showing only light rubbing and wear. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Jones left an enduring legacy of athletic prowess and exemplary personal characteristics. No one is likely to break his records of 13 U.S. and British national championships, and four in one year (he won the U.S. Open a total of four times, the U.S. Amateur five times, the British Open three times, and the British Amateur one time)… The Masters seems to have a secure place in the pantheon of golf; and the name Bobby Jones will continue to represent the highest standards of amateurism, sportsmanship and self-mastery" (ANB).

        Ethnography of Micronesia [Mikuroneshia minzokushi]

      Oka shoin, Tokyo 1927 - Large octavo. 4, 24, 835, [1]pp. 3/4 leather over olive cloth, with gold lettering on spine and title laid on front cover. Japanese ethnographer Shizuo Matsuoka (1878-1936) was sent to Micronesia after Japan took control of the area by Mandate of the League of Nations in 1920. Matsuoka was concerned with all the aspects of the people's lives: history, geography, population, language, legends, archeological sites, ethnic groups, belief system, social organization, life cycle, clothing and ornaments, housing, food and diet, and weapons. He included sporadic comments on Micronesian customs from the Japanese point of view compared with that of the West. He states for instance, "Of all the islanders' customs which were unintelligible to Western eyes there are many that are quite understandable to us Japanese. Some customs categorized as superstitions are reasonable" (Ibid: 94). This work is profusely illustrated throughout with hundreds of b/w illustrations, photogravure plates, a music score and a folding map. Book rebacked with original title pasted on spine. Covers rubbed with some discoloration spots. Moderate and sporadic foxing throughout. Folding map split along inner margin, but present. Text in Japanese. Binding in overall good- to good, interior in good to good+ condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Paris: Transition (1927-1938) - First Editions. Octavos. Set of twenty-six issues of the experimental literary journal Transition, founded by Eugene Jolas and Maria McDonald in 1927 and edited by Jolas with Elliot Paul, Robert Sage, and James Johnson Sweeney. Devoted to avant-garde poetry and prose of the early twentieth century, the publication featured contributions by visual artists, critics, writers, and political activists and was primarily distributed through Shakespeare and Company. Transition quickly became the most sought after literary and artistic journal of the inter-war period, and taken together, the journal presents a nearly definitive understanding of Surrealism, through the poetry, prose, and artistic production of its contributors. Issues 1 through 12 are smaller volumes without cover illustrations; Issues 14 through 27 assume a larger size, and feature artist designed covers. Of particular interest is issue 26, with a cover by Marcel Duchamp that depicts at comb floating in midair. Along the spine of the comb, Duchamp has written "3 ou 4 Gouttes de Hauteur n'ont rien a faire avec la sauvagerie," or "3 or 4 drops of haughtiness have nothing to do with savagery." This set includes issues 1 through 27, published between 1927 and 1938. With work by Gertrude Stein, William Carlos Williams, Kay Boyle, James Joyce, Kurt Schwitters, Hugo Ball, Hans Arp, Franz Kafka, Dylan Thomas, Aragon, and Fernand Léger, Pablo Picasso, Yves Tanguy, Joan Miró, and Hans Arp, among many other seminal figures of modern art and literature. Inexpensively produced journal, with noticeable defects in the entire collection; issue 3 is missing its cover, though all other issues are intact. Collection uniformly good to very good.
