        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.

      Golden Cockerel Press, Waltham St. Lawrence 1927 - 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. No. 22 OF 225 NUMBERED COPIES on paper (and six on vellum). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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.

        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).

        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.

      Paris: F.-L. Schmied, 1927. FIRST EDITION. No. 50 OF 170 COPIES, SIGNED BY SCHMIED n. Hardcover. 318 x 241 mm (12 1/2 x 9 1/2"). 8 p.l. (first four blank), 145 pp., [9] leaves (last four blank). FIRST EDITION. No. 50 OF 170 COPIES, SIGNED BY SCHMIED. Unbound as issued in original printed paper wrappers. With 14 full-page color wood engravings (including the frontispiece signed in pencil by Schmied) and 635 color panel borders, line fillers, and tailpieces in the Art Deco style, all by Schmied. Recto of limitations page with a facsimile inscription by the author to Schmied. Carteret IV, 263. Short ink mark to margin of title page, just the faintest isolated smudge or freckled foxing, otherwise a very fine copy, clean and fresh, with the fragile wrapper unsoiled and remarkably well preserved. This is an excellent example of the impressive book arts productions of François-Louis Schmied (1873-1941), a man who raised Art Deco to its highest level in the field of bibliophile publishing in France and someone who generally was responsible (as here) for every aspect of the production of his books. He engraved all of the woodcut decorations and plates for "Histoire," and printed them himself as well as designed the layout of the text, which was printed with the assistance of his son Théo and P. Guillemat. The text here is a love story set in the Middle East, the work of Dr. Joseph-Charles Mardrus (1868-1949), who described himself as "Muslim by birth and Parisian by accident." Born in Egypt and educated in Lebanon, the physician and eminent Orientalist was a fixture in the intellectual circles of Paris, where he helped to inspire the rage for all things Oriental. He produced a well-received, unexpurgated translation of "One Thousand and One Nights," and was commissioned by the French government to produce a translation of the Koran. He gives full credit to Schmied for the realization of the present work in his inscription, which reads: "Dear Schmied, it is to please you that this unpublished text has been developed. Without you, without your enthusiasm, it would still be in nothingness. Your friend, J. C. M."

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. („Blei").

      Wohl Berlin („Küstrinerstrasse 23"), [um 1927]. - 1 S. 4to. An den Schriftsteller Walther Petry (1898–1932): „Aus den Musen drucken Sie ab was Sie wollen. Ich habe keine Bedingungen an Sie zu stellen. Die Gedichte von Valéry hab ich z. Zt. verliehen und weiss nicht an wen! [.]" – Geboren in Magdeburg, lebte Walther Petry als freier Journalist, Schriftsteller, Herausgeber und Übersetzer (u. a. von Apollinaire, Lautréamont, Mallarmé, Valèry, Alfred Jarry und Leon-Paul Fargue) in Berlin. Für den Verlag „Die Schmiede" übersetzte Petry auch Proust; eine gemeinsam mit Walter Benjamin und Franz Hessel betriebene Übersetzung von dessen „À la recherche du temps perdu" wurde jedoch wegen finanzieller Schwierigkeiten eingestellt. Seit 1927 etwa leitete Petry das Feuilleton der „Magdeburgischen Zeitung" und setzte sich nachdrücklich für Robert Musil ein, den er 1927 auch persönlich kennengelernt hatte.

        Ulysses [published in Two Worlds Monthly, ed. Samuel Roth].

      New York: Two Worlds Publishing Company, 1927] - 2 volumes, octavo. Original red pebble-grain cloth, printed paper labels to spines with limitation statements completed in manuscript, top edges gilt, red endpapers. Vol. II inner hinges slightly tender with tape-repair to second leaf of advertisements. An excellent copy. Title pages printed in red and black. First edition in book form of Samuel Roth's infamous piracy of Ulysses, this numbered 94 of 500 copies produced specially for subscribers and bound from the parts with stab-holes visible. Roth had originally reprinted thirteen bowdlerised episodes from Ulysses across eleven individual instalments in his Two Worlds Monthly serial, Vols. I-III (July 1926 - October 1927), with Vol. III.4, containing the fourteenth episode, and a preface by Roth both appearing here for the first time. Roth was known for publishing sexually explicit literature and other underground material, including a pirated edition of Lady Chatterley's Lover. His pirating of Ulysses "resulted in considerable public indignation and provoked the 'International Protest' signed by 167 artists and writers and printed in transition I" (Slocum & Cahoon p. 100). Joyce was able to obtain an injunction against Roth, but not until after Two Worlds Monthly had already ceased publication. An excellent copy, scarce in this condition. Slocum & Cahoon C68.
