        HISTOIRE CHARMANTE DE L'ADOLESCENTE SUCRE D'AMOUR

      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for the realization of the present work in his inscription, which reads: "Dear Schmied, it is to please you that this unpublished text has been developed.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."

      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.

        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.

        Einsame Stimme: Ein Buch Gedichte [SIGNED]

      Martin Wasservogel, Berlin 1927 - 1/20. Quarto. [6], 173, [3]pp. Uncut. Original full calf, with gold lettering and ruling on spine. Raised bands. Top edge gilt. Tissue-guarded original lithograph, signed in the plate by George Grasz. Limitation page signed by Max Herrmann. Collection of poems by the famous German Expressionist poet Max Herrmann. The frontispiece is an original lithograph by George Grosz, in which he details the lines, bumps, veins, and ruddiness of his friend Max Herrmann-Neisse's head and hands in this portrait, picturing him almost within arm's reach. Though Grosz was known for his harshly critical caricatures of corrupt figures, this portrait reveals a different side of the artist, capable of portraying his friend with sympathy. Grosz renders his friend's face with a contemplative expression that perhaps reflects Herrmann-Neisse's description of feeling "completely at home" in Grosz's studio. Grosz represents his friend's distinctive features - his hunched back and bald head - without the distortion so typical of the Expressionists. One of 20 copies numbered in Roman numerals, untrimmed, signed, and bound in full leather, of which this is No. IX (of a total edition of 900). Binding rubbed on raised bands and along edges. Text in German, gothic script. Binding in overall good- to good, interior in very good condition. About the author: Herrmann-Neisse, Max (1886-1941), was in reality Max Herrmann, to which name he added the name of his birthplace. He studied literature and history of art in Munich and Breslau, then turned to journalism and writing, first in his Silesian native city, and from 1917 in Berlin. He wrote mainly poetry and, influenced by Expressionism, contributed to "Die Aktion;" other periodicals include R. Schickele's "Die weißen Blätter." His poetry reflects his own sense of isolation, most poignantly felt after his emigration in 1933. He showed a preference for traditional forms and rhymed verse. He settled in London and, deprived of his German citizenship in 1938, wrote the defiant poem 'Ewige Heimat', for the homeland will live on 'in the song of its banished sons' ('in dem Lied verstoßner Söhne'). His poetry appeared in about 12 collections, including "Empörung," "Andacht," "Ewigkeit" (1918), appealing for the brotherhood of man, "Im Stern des Schmerzes" (1924), "Einsame Stimme" (1927), and "Um uns die Fremde" (1936). Other volumes include "Letzte Gedichte," ed. Leni Herrmann (posth. 1941), and select editions, "Erinnerung und Exil" (1946), "Im Fremden ungewollt zuhaus," ed. H. Hupka (1956), and "Lied der Einsamkeit." "Gedichte von 1914-1941," ed. F. Grieger (1961). Of his three plays, the comedy "Joseph der Sieger" (1919) achieved success. He also wrote two novels, "Cajetan Schaltermann" (1920) and "Der Flüchtling" (1921), and a number of stories which appeared in the collections "Hilflose Augen" (1920) and "Die Begegnung" (1925). Gesammelte Werke (9 vols.), ed. K. Völker, appeared 1986 ff. In 1927 Herrmann-Neiße received the Eichendorff Prize, in 1933 the Hauptmann Prize. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      München, 11. X. 1927.. ¾ S. 4to.. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Es ist wirklich keine Respektlosigkeit vor Ihren zweifellos sehr edel gemeinten jugendlichen Bemühungen, die mich zu einer Absage (ich glaube, ich erteilte Ihnen schon einmal eine) bestimmte und vorläufig weiter bestimmen muss.

      Harper & Brothers, 1927, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good, First edition. A Very Good copy of this collection of 22 Rhys short stories set in Paris during the 1920s (minor rubs to the spine ends and board corners, spine title label mildly soiled, foxing to the closed page block's upper edge, pages age toned as expected -- no dust jacket), being the first American edition utilizing the British sheets and a cancel title page. [Harper had the book's text printed in England and published the collection in both New York and London in 1927.] Ford Madox Ford, a mentor to Rhys, helped bring this collection to publication and requested permission to author the book's long Preface in which he notes the author's profound knowledge of the Left Bank in Paris. Of the collection, Ford stated "One likes, in short to be connected with something good, and Miss Rhys's work seems to me to be very good, so vivid, so extraordinarily distinguished by the rendering of passion, and so true, that I wish to be connected with it." A Very Good copy of this remarkably scarce first edition of the Dominican-born author's debut book. QUITE SCARCE INDEED.
