        Faust.

      London: George G. Harrap & Company Ltd,, 1927. From the German by John Fluster. Quarto (252 × 193 mm). Later black crushed morocco by Bayntun-Riviere, raised bands with three small circle tools gilt, title gilt direct to second and fourth compartments, the others with arabesque cornerpieces within a single fillet panel gilt, attractive panelling to the boards incorporating the same arabesque corner-tools, bead and chain gilt edge-roll, all edges gilt, broad turn-ins with elaborate gilt dentelles, grey Cockerell marbled endpapers. Tissue-guarded coloured frontispiece and 7 other similar plates, 14 monochrome plates, one of them double-page, full-page illustrations from a pen and ink drawings to recto of the limitation leaf and to last leaf, similar decorative title-page, and head- and tailpieces throughout, original pictorial endpapers bound in at the rear. Binding very good indeed, tan-burn from the turn-ins, light toning to the text, pale pinkish off-setting from the photo-reproduced monochrome plates, but overall an excellent copy. First Clarke-illustrated edition, this from the signed limited edition of 2,000 copies divided between the US and UK, this copy number 838 of the 1,000 copies for issue in the UK. The publishers were dubious about Clarke's efforts, thinking them, as he recalled, "full of steaming horrors", but Dorothy Richardson, pioneering modernist and feminist, writing in The Studio understood; "There is from first to last in these pictures no sunlight, but rather light filtered, coming as through a glass darkly. And it is this quality of filtered light, helping to make him so interesting a commentator on Goethe's tale, that is one of the distinctive charms of Mr. Clarke's work. It is not for nothing that he is by choice a designer of storied windows richly dight, and in the case of these Faust pictures, the dimmed light is truly religious, binding together as in a single medium this wealth of fantastic invention and remaining in the mind until the detail is lost in the whole". Handsomely-bound copy of the last book illustrated by Clarke, and perhaps his masterpiece in the form.

        BLENDED WORLDS .

      Miami, Arizona: Southern Arizona Publishing Co., 1927 - Octavo, pp. [1-6] [1-3] 4-243 [244-250] [note: first two and last three leaves are blanks], original blue cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold. First edition. Limited to 100 copies numbered and signed by Van Dyke, plus some out-of-series copies, this being one of the latter. Eccentric occult science fiction novel, sequel to THE FLASH, also privately printed by the author in an edition of 100 copies in Miami, Arizona, in 1927. THE FLASH and its sequel first appeared as serials in the Miami, Arizona, DAILY SILVER BELT. This is definitely not your usual Victorian, talking-heads-in-flowing-white-robes kind of occult romance; but rather a wild and wooly tale in the American tradition of such works as RONDAH, REVI-LONA, and DR. ZELL AND THE PRINCESS CHARLOTTE. It's a red- blooded, action-packed adventure, blending backdrops of the Wild West and the Roaring Twenties, complete with bootleggers, prize fighters, romantic passion, grizzled prospectors, super science and a bizarre 25-page journey through an underworld cavern in which we learn about Glowhumes, unsaturated Electrohumes, the Ancient Order of Wasted Propaganda, radicals and coefficients, the Interrogator and the Disseminator, and the progressive concentration of "sparkles" as one ascends the food chain. Taken together, they form the wacky, sui generis occultism that animates this story philosophically. Here is a quest whose hunted treasure turns out to be multilayered both figuratively and literally. It follows the adventures of Charlie, Mary and Frank (brother, sister, friend) in search of unspecified treasure at the foot of Sleeping Beauty, seen in a vision in Chicago, drawing them across the country in a covered wagon until they arrive in Arizona at a mountainous formation that looks like a giant Sleeping Beauty. Charlie is given to trances and astral travel, and early on in the story fails to return from one. It is his corpse, strapped to a rubber air mattress gliding sideways across a raging river that initiates the trip to the underworld. Mary is beautiful, quick, ethereal and extremely devoted to Charlie. Frank is brawny, slow, down-to-earth and extremely devoted to Mary. The story in large part is about how Mary becomes more earthy (and humble) and Frank more spiritual (and confident) until they pass through all the inner and outer obstacles keeping them apart as a romantic couple. Along the way, Frank becomes a champion prize fighter under the management of Dorothy, a feisty and fetching schoolteacher who gets off a bus to help Frank after the storm that separates him from Mary, but who then gets a taste of the fast life on Frank's winnings and finds another lover. Mary becomes a celebrated mind- reader, fortuneteller and faith-healer under the cynical management of her Uncle Joseph, a cagey prospector fond of doing vocal impressions. Van Dyke lacks the polish of the professional writer and is sometimes awkward, abrupt or confusing; but he tells a complex yet fast-moving story and tells it with suspense, psychological credibility, thematic depth, and comedy (sometimes unintentional). Most impressive is how he combines customarily opposite qualities, writing convincingly of the city and the desert, the boxing ring and a magical cavern, crooks and angels, thus making his book itself an intriguing example of blended worlds. A significant book that should be better known. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978), Reginald (1979; 1992) or Day (1963). Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy Volume II, p. 110. Cloth rubbed at edges, several small stains, two gatherings slightly proud, a very good copy. Quite uncommon. (#149503) [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Pictures of Horses and English Life. With an Appreciation by Lionel Lindsay

      London: Eyre and Spottiswoode, 1927. First Edition, one of 250 signed copies. With 28 tipped-in color plates and numerous black and white illustrations. 1 vols. Folio. Original full vellum, gilt, t.e.g., others uncut. Munnings, A.J. First Edition, one of 250 signed copies. With 28 tipped-in color plates and numerous black and white illustrations. 1 vols. Folio. A superb, sumptuous volume, covering the wide range of Munnings's work, from his elaborate oils to a final bit of verse illustrated by amusing sketches; included are some of the colorful studies of gypsy life which brought him his first, early renown. A.J. Munnings (1878-1959) spent his early years in rural Suffolk, worked for a firm of Norwich lithographers and studied at the Norwich School of Art. At the age of twenty he lost the sight of his right eye in an accident, a misfortune that did not stop him from having a long, celebrated and profitable painting career. A lover of the countryside, he was particularly fond of horses, and through his depictions of hunting and racing scenes became the foremost sporting artist of his time and one of the best painters of horses in the history of art. Munnings was not a studio artist--he much preferred setting up his easel out of doors, which, added to his fine draftsmanship, helped keep his work fresh and spontaneous. Munnings was elected to the Royal Academy in 1925, became its president in 1944, received a knighthood and numerous honors. In the words of fellow artist Gerald Kelly, "By his gay exuberance and love of life, [he] attracted friends throughout his long life, although they were exasperated by his headstrong follies and unreasonable temper." This lavish book is both the rich reflection of an artist who was always larger than life, and a testimony to his imperishable achievement. A MONUMENTAL RECORD OF ONE OF THE GREATEST ENGLISH SPORTING ARTISTS.

        Autograph Quotation signed ("M.A. Foroughi"). In French.

      [Paris]., September 1927. - Folio. 1 page. On uncut wove paper, bearing the Schoellers-Parole blind embossed seal, margins uncut. The original autograph contribution of Mohammed-Ali Foroughi 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. "Peace will reign over the world and a true League of Nations will exist on the day when we will have truly understood that men, in order to be true men, must, contrary to the beast, band together instead of tearing each other apart, and that in the struggle for life they must fight, not the one against the other, but all against nature, or rather against our ignorance of the physical and moral laws of nature. This thought has been admirably expressed by one of our most illustrious philosophical poets, Djelaladdine, nearly 700 years ago in a couplet which I should like to quote verbatim: 'The wolves and the dogs are disunited, / The true men are always in perfect accord'. [Signed] M. A. Foroughi, Premier Delegate of Persia to the League of Nations". Foroughi became Director of the Tehran School of Political Science in 1907. He was instrumental in the bringing to power of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi after Reza Shah was forced to abdicate in 1941 and subsequently became Ambassador of Iran to the United States. 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.

        Poetical Works (With notes by Francis T. Palgave)

      London: Macmillan & Co., 1927. Very good antiquarian condition. Small 8vo. 146 x 92 mm. xi, [i], 284 pp. Fine turquoise crushed morocco, intricately gilt, by Ramage of London (their stamp on front turn-in): covers with multiple gilt rolls bordering a rich and densely gilt plaitwork frame enclosing an open panel with petite, gilt-tooled cornerpieces; raised bands, spine compartments reiterating the frame's design, turn-ins decorated with decorative rolls and small tools, ivory moire silk endleaves, all edges gilt. Title page with engraved vignette. First preliminary blank with neat inked inscription, "To Louise / all best love / from A. / 1929." The faintest hint of a scratch on one cover, spine probably darker than the boards, the text clean and fresh, and the elaborately decorated binding lustrous and virtually unworn. The sparkling Ramage binding on this copy of Keats' "Poetical Works" lends support to the author's immortal aphorism: "a thing of beauty is a joy forever." Our collection of the poems was compiled by Francis Turner Palgrave (1824-1897), British critic, poet, and early friend of Tennyson. Palgrave is best remembered as the anthologist of "The Golden Treasury of the Best Songs and Lyrical Poems in the English Language" (1861). The binding could hardly be prettier. We have seen a virtually identical Ramage binding formerly in the possessions of Messrs. Pirages on a copy of Francis Turner's "Golden Treasury of the Best Songs and Lyrical Poems in the English Language" (London, 1867), the binding wrongly dated "ca. 1867." As we learn from the description of a Ramage binding at the National Library of New Zealand: "John Ramage was born in London in 1836. When Ramage came out of his apprenticeship in 1856, he took the unusual step for an English binder of going to Paris and working under Lortic, one of the leading French binders of the day. In 1860 Ramage returned to Britain and purchased the Edinburgh business of Alexander Banks Jr, stating in the 1861 census returns that he employed 8 men, 3 boys, 6 women and 1 girl. Three years later he moved his business to London, where there was more work. He moved to larger premises in Warwick Lane in 1870, and from there he went to Warwick Square and in 1891 to Creed Lane. After his death in 1911, W.D. and N.M. Ramage, whose names appear in the London Directory for 1918, continued the work of the firm, disappearing after 1929, presumably victims of the slump following the stock market crash in New York that year. The firm reproduced the styles of the past, but was also capable of producing outstanding original designs" (as shown here).

      London: John Lane: The Bodley Head Limited, [1927] - Octavo, pp. [i-iv] v [vi-viii] ix-li [lii] [1-2] 3-223 [224: blank] 1-4: ads, original decorated olive-green cloth, front panel stamped in blind and gold, spine panel stamped in gold, top edge stained olive-green, fore and bottom edges untrimmed. First edition. The author's third and last collection of weird fiction, this one dedicated to Maurice Baring. It includes "Tanhuser and the Gods," one of the finest humorous fantasies, "Winthrop's Adventure," "The Virgin of the Seven Daggers," and two others, as well as a long, interesting introduction on the sources for the stories. Lee's weird fiction earned the praise of Montague Summers, who equated her talent to that of M. R. James. "Lee's stories are really in a category by themselves. Intelligent, amusingly ironic, imaginative, original, they deserve more than the passing attention that they have attracted." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, pp. 256-57. "Marsyas in Flanders" is a "fine antiquarian tale but too early to have been directly influenced by M. R. James (it was written in 1900)." - Pardoe, The James Gang, p. 11. Ashley, Who's Who in Horror and Fantasy Fiction, p. 114. Barron (ed), Horror Literature 2-48. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 991. Tymn (ed), Horror Literature 3-141.

        No. 27 Squadron in India and on the North-west Frontier - Miranshah, Karachi, Risalpur, &c.

      India: , 1927-30. Landscape quarto (298 × 230 mm). Contemporary cord-backed brown leather-textured paper covered boards. 48 original photographs (152 × 208 mm) corner-mounted both sides of 24 card leaves, tissue guards between the leaves. Somewhat worn externally, boards through at the edges, cord tie replaced with string, but internally clean and sound, leaves sunned at the margins, a few corner-mounts missing, but the prints themselves in excellent condition, overall very good. An unusual, and highly interesting album of high-quality photographs documenting the services of 27 Squadron RAF on North-west Frontier during the last years of the 1920s. The album contains numerous sharp and well-composed air-to-air images of the unit's Airco DH-9As and Westland Wapitiis over the spectacular frontier scenery around their main base of Miranshah - "My machine flying at Karachi", "Flying over the snow clad mountains over Rasmak", "Wapiti dropping food to Lhadu Column November 1929", "Bombing on the Frontier during operations in India during Summer 1930" - together with aerial views of the bases, camps, and forts of the region; formal and informal group portraits; a group of three aerial views of the four Supermarine Southampton II flying-boats, which constituted the RAF Far Eastern Flight, taken at Karachi on their way to Singapore from England; and a shot of Baron Koenig-Warthausen and his Klemm L.20B machine "Kamerad" at Karachi during his solo flight around the world. It is intriguing that the album covers the period when T.E. Lawrence had succeeded in getting himself posted to the frontier as a humble clerk, being stationed at Karachi and at Miranshah. Sadly, despite the closest possible scrutiny, it does not appear that Shaw/Lawrence features in any of the images. Bestowal document for the Imperial Service Medal, dated in 1965,l made out to William Arthur Tibbs loosely inserted, who is perhaps the "me" in two photographs taken in the Political Agent's garden at Miranshah.

        Einführung in die Wissenschaft vom Leben oder Ascaris.

      Berlin: Julius Springer,, 1927. [2nd Part only (of 3)]. Small octavo. Original green cloth, gilt lettered spine, gilt device on front cover. 161 illustrations in the text. Ownership stamp on front pastedown of "Chas. Melton Johns Hopkins University", (1900-1974), author of Production and Analysis of Blastular Arrest of Frog Embryos (Johns Hopkins, 1964). Spine rolled and toned, with partial loss of fabric, sides patchily faded. First edition, later printing ("4 bis 8 Tausend" on title page). Inscribed on the front free endpaper: "Julian Huxley from the Author Nov 1927", in pencil in Huxley's hand (and another note, perhaps in his hand, on p. 330). A remarkable association copy, linking two key figures of evolutionary theory and developmental biology: Julian Huxley (1887-1975) and Richard Goldschmidt (1878-1958). The central point in the work of both men was the problem of a relative growth in animals; Huxley developed a formula of the allometric growth (law of constant differential growth) while Goldschmidt was the the first to draw up the broad interpretation of the consequences of that phenomenon.

        METROPOLIS.

      London: The Readers Library Publishing Company Ltd., n.d. [1927] - Small octavo, pp. [1-13] 14-250 [251: blank] [252: printer's imprint] [253- 256: blank] [note: first and last leaves used as front and rear paste- downs], original decorated red-brown boards, front and spine panels stamped in gold. First edition in English. The first printing without mention of this title in list of Readers Library books on page [7]. Novelization of the screenplay by Fritz Lang and Thea von Harbou of Lang's 1926 UFA film which was about three hours long in it's original seventeen- reel version. "Though often described as the first SF epic of the cinema, this famous German film -- of which no complete version now exists -- has just as much in common with the cinema of the Gothic. Though set in a future visually emphasized by towering buildings and vast brooding machines, the city of Metropolis has an underworld dark and medieval in atmosphere . The story of METROPOLIS is trite and its politics ludicrously simplistic; but these flaws cannot detract from the sheer visual power of the film -- a combination of the high Expressionistic sets (the work of art directors Otto Hunte, Erich Kettelhut and Karl Vollbrecht) and Lang's direction . METROPOLIS, which was extremely expensive and not a financial success, almost bankrupted the studio that made it (UFA). The film was cut almost as soon as it was released, and -- still in the 1920s -- shortened yet more radically in the UK and USA. Even recently restored archival versions are half an hour shorter than the original." - Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (1993), p. 804-5. Anatomy of Wonder (1976) 3-23; (1981) 2-112; (1987) 2- 123; (1995) 2-132; and (2004) II-1197. Bleiler, Science- Fiction: The Early Years 1040. Lewis, Utopian Literature, p. 198.

A fine copy in fine first printing dust jacket (with wraparound illustration by Aubrey Hammond) that does not list METROPOLIS on the rear flap. A beautiful white paper copy in the striking four-color pictorial dust jacket, virtually as new, save for a minute chip at upper right front corner -- a stunning copy.

        [Manuscrit autographe signé] Brouillon de lettre à Charles Maurras pour demander son adhésion à l'Action française

      1927. Manuscrit. Bon. En Feuilles. Signé par l'auteur. In-8. 6 pp. in-8 datées du 2 avril 1927 et signées, nombreuses ratures et corrections. Monsieur et admirable maître, Fervent patriote depuis que j'ai l'âge d'homme (...) je vous prie aujourd'hui de vouloir bien accepter mon adhésion à la Ligue. (...) Mais je me crois obligé de vous fournir un renseignement sur ma personne, afin que vous n'achetiez pas chat en poche. Je ne suis pas un rationaliste pur. (...) Un dernier point : je suis psychanalyste. Les résultats obtenus par la méthode freudienne ont obligé ma bonne foi à accepter cette discipline. J'ai écrit récemment un article pour montrer que l'adoption de la psychanalyse comme méthode thérapeutique n'entraînait pas vers la renonciation à aucun système métaphysique, moral ni religieux. Mais (...) les attaques de M. Daudet contre le freudisme ont été si vives que je crains presque que ma foi dans cette méthode thérapeutique ne devienne une entrave à mon admission dans la ligue d'A. F. (...) Je suis tel. M'acceptez-vous tel ? Si oui, je m'inscris demain à l'A. F. Elisabeth Roudinesco a eu accès à ce document, qu'elle cite longuement dans son "Histoire de la psychanalyse en France " (p. 299) et commente ainsi : "Tel est en effet Edouard Pichon : incapable d'opportunisme, fanatique, intransigeant, ne cédant pas sur son désir. Il se tient au plus près de ses contradictions extrêmes et réclame avec absolutisme qu'on accepte ses projets les plus fous. Il est hostile au judaïsme sans être antisémite notoire. Il adhère à l'AF alors même que cette ligue combat l'essence du freudisme, doctrine "juive", antichrétienne." C'est en effet dans cette lettre, inédite sauf dans les extraits cités par E. Roudinesco, que se lit le mieux - ainsi qu'elle l'a surnommé - le côté "Dr Jekyll et Mr Hyde" de Pichon. C'est en cette même année 1927 que Pichon créera avec Laforgue et quelques autres la Société Psychanalytique de Paris, qu'il épousera Hélène Janet (la fille de celui qui est considéré comme l'adversaire en France de Freud) et qu'il mettra au point son concept de forclusion. Nota : ce document ne pourra être exporté en dehors de l'Union Européenne sans autorisation préalable du ministère de la Culture, formalité pouvant prendre plusieurs jours..

        The Protocols of Zion].

      Doloi Zlo Parizh 1927 - Quarto (24 x 15.7 cm). 64 pp. Original publisher's wrappers including a photogravure. A fine, fresh example of this émigré edition of this most notorious of anti-semitic slanders. The text of the 24 protocols comes from Nilus' 1911 edition, with the addition of an extensive introduction by the publisher, Duke Mikhail Gorchakov. "The Protocols" is an antisemitic hoax purporting to describe a Jewish plan for global domination. It was first published in Russia in 1903, later translated into multiple languages, and disseminated internationally in the early part of the 20th century. The text purports to document the minutes of a late 19th-century meeting of Jewish leaders discussing their goal of global Jewish hegemony by subverting the morals of "gentiles", and by controlling the press and the world's economies. Following the October Revolution, the Protocols of Zion came to be seen in a new light by the Russian right. Viewed through the prism of their anti-semitic beliefs, the predominantly Jewish make-up of the new Bolshevik government appeared to provide material proof of the prophecies that the text had purportedly first revealed. In order to make those links explicit, this émigré edition uses as its cover a photograph of Soviet officials titled, "The Jewish Government in Russia". Books on Jewish and Masonic conspiracies abounded during the early years of Russian emigration, finding fertile ground amongst the more reactionary elements of the community. In reality, these works tend to reveal rather less about the given subject matter than they do about the émigré community's own attempts to make sense of their own unhappy fate. In 1930s it was proved that the source material for the forged text consisted jointly of "Dialogue in Hell Between Machiavelli and Montesquieu", an 1864 political satire by Maurice Joly and a chapter from "Biarritz", an 1868 novel by the antisemitic German novelist Hermann Goedsche.

Brauner Orig.-Leinenbd. mit blindgeprägtem Rücken- u Deckeltitel.

      0 - Tschernikows Hauptwerk. Dieses Buch ist eines der seltensten und gesuchtesten Architektur-Publikationen unserer Zeit, und darüber hinaus eines der am aufwendigsten gedruckten Kunstbücher im nachrevolutionären Russland. Tschernikow war ein konstruktivistischer Architekt. Seine Bücher über Architektur, die zwischen 1927 und 1933 veröffentlicht wurden, gehören zu den innovativsten der damaligen Zeit. Seine 1933 veröffentlichten "101 Architektur-Phantasien" gehören zu den letzten Büchern der Avantgarde, die während der Stalin-Ära in Russland noch publiziert wurden. Mit seinen außergewöhnlichen Ideen machte er sich verdächtig. Obwohl er weiter unterrichten und vortragen durfte, wurde kaum einer seiner Entwürfe realisiert. Eines der wenigen Bauwerke Tschernikows, die sich erhalten haben, ist der Turm der "Fabrik Rote Nelke" in St. Petersburg. Schönes Exemplar der extrem selten Veröffentlichung. - MoMa 1022.
