One page, in ink, on sheet of blank stationery. 4to. "Had a great time in Chicago - great Rodeo. C.R. Williams got there one day late and somehow he was left out of the big money in bronk [sic] riding on that account. It sure was too bad and I thought something was going to be done about it, but I guess not. Williams was only there one day or so. Got to thinking about C.R.W's spurs and if you don't want to take responsibility of 'em send 'em to me. I'd sure like to hang 'em up here and Williams could take his time sending me the money ... I'm going to stay here a few months yet - maybe till Christmas, then I might go to Hollywood ... but I'm not going to run around anymore till then, I've got too much to do. Starting on a long novel now ..." James signed "Bill James" when addressing his wife or close friends (see Frazier p. 170). C.R Williams from Calais, Montana was a rodeo star and fine bronc rider. He was a double for Tom Mix in the movies.

        Autograph Letter Signed ("Eric Gill" and "E.G."), to John Gideon Wilson of J. & E. Bumpus Bookshop in London

      Villa des Palmiers, Salies-de-Béarn, France, 1927. 2 pp., in green ink. 4to. Some wrinkling, closed tear to blank margin, slight toning, old folds. 2 pp., in green ink. 4to. With architectural drawings and referencing Troilus & Criseyde. Gill writes to his friend, J.G. Wilson of the Bumpus Bookshop in London, regarding his engraving, "Flying Buttresses," mentioning his work on Troilus & Criseyde for the Golden Cockerel Press, and mentioning another of his publishers. An excellent technical letter with 5 small drawings in the text. In part: "I am working like anything on the engravings for the Golden Cockerel Troilus & Criseyde. I expect to finish the engravings by about Easter ... I shall come and see you as soon as possible to talk over things and explain how it happened that D. Cleverdon is publishing my next ... Meanwhile this is just to make a brief apology for myself in the matter of the Buttresses! Is matter of fact they aren't so blooming wrong in the engraving as your correspondent thinks. It's the perspective which makes the difficulty." The engraving in question is "Flying Buttresses," based on a drawing of St. Pierre, Chartes, used to illustrated Gil's 1926 essay "Id Quod Visum Placet." Gil uses the rest of the letter to explain, with the aid of five small sketches, why the perspective is in fact correct. Douglas Cleverdon, the Bristol bookseller and publisher, brought out Gill's Art and Love in 1927, as well as a collection of his engravings in 1929.

        Synthèse du Costume Théâtral. Trente planches en couleurs.

      Paris "Le Théâtre national Mondial?" 1927 - 4to (33.5 x 25.5 cm). No. 46 of 170 copies. ff. [8], 33 pochoir plates (including frontispiece), some with gold or silver, on laid paper. Paperback, pochoir illustration and signature by the artist to upper board; small marginal repairs and light stains to covers, text block clean. Very rare album containing 33 designs by the Cubist and Art Deco painter Serge Gladky (1880 – 1930s), a Russian based in Paris, one of the precursors to the development of abstract art. Gladky worked as a graphic artist and architect, using ornamental and geometric patterns composed of sleek lines and sharp angles, inspired by nature and animals. He was also heavily involved in popularising pochoir printmaking in Paris in the early 1900s, a reaction against the mass printing techniques that often produced dull colours. The introduction to this album is by André Salmon, a French writer and art critic who, with Guillaume Apollinaire, was one of the early defenders of Cubism. In the text the poet expands on his love of Russian costumes and on his admiration for Gladky. Praising the artist's ability to convey the essence of Russian culture through geometric shapes, he calls the plates 'inventions merveilles, miraculeuses.' [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Goresti i skitania: Zapiski 1854-1877 [i e Sorrows and Tribulations: Notes From 1854 To 1877]

      Leningrad: Academia, 1927. FIRST EDITION. Small 8vo (150 x 110 mm). [2], 218, [6] pp. With a portrait of the author. Original Constructivist styled wrapper designed by Valentina Khodasevich (small tears of the overlapped wrappers, Soviet bookshops' stamps on the recto of the back cover, a few spots on the back cover and extremities of the pages, few pages slightly loose, shadow on the first and last pages). Overall a very good copy, preserved in a fine fitted protective case. These memoirs are not only a portrait of a young provincial actress and her life, told simply and without embellishment, but also a collection of interesting details from theatre life of 19th century. Maria Gavrilovna Savina (1854-1915) was a renowned Russian actress. Born Maria Podramentsova into a family of stage actors, she debuted in Minsk in 1869, then joined the Mikhail Leontovsky troupe in Kharkov. While there, she married the actor N. N. Slavich who used the stage name Savin, and has been known as Marya Savina ever since. In 1874 Savina, then the leading actress at the Saratov Theatre, moved to Saint Petersburg to join the Alexandrinsky Theatre. It was there that she became famous, mostly for her parts in Alexander Ostrovsky's plays (including Without a Dowry, Talents and Admirers, A Profitable Position, Hard-Earned Bread, The Last Victim, Vasilisa Melentyeva, Wild Thing), as well as in Nikolai Gogol's Revizor, Ivan Turgenev's A Month in the Country and Leo Tolstoy's The Power of Darkness, among others. Foreign playwrights of the time, such as Ibsen and Zuderman, also found in her an excellent performer. Some of the Russian writers of the time were mainly successful due to her performance. This first edition of 1927 was limited to 5100 copies and is now scarce. The significance of the text is such that it has been reprinted three times (1961, 1983 and 2004); of course none of these reprints feature the original impression of the justly famous Constructivist wrappers designed by Valentina Khodasevich (1894-1970), celebrated Soviet theater and graphic artist. This book was the third in the series "Theatrical Memoirs" edited by P.I Novitsky and E. Kuznetsov. The portrait of 17-years-old M.G. Savina is reproduced for the first time from her photograph taken in Kaluga in 1871; likewise, these Memoirs are fully printed for the first time from the manuscript in the Museum of Academic Theaters.

        My: román [We: a novel] Lidová knihovna Aventina, svazek 23 [Aventinum's Popular library, volume 23]

      Prague: Ot. Storch-Marien, 1927. Small octavo (16.5 × 11.5 cm). Original decorative wrappers; 172, [3] pp. Publisher's ads. Very good or better; with just a tiny tear to the lower spine. The second ever appearance in print of Zamyatin's only completed novel, a groundbreaking work in the genre of a futuristic dystopia that was read as a bitter satire on Soviet society and could not be published in Russia. Completed in 1921, it was first issued in an English translation in 1924 (New York, E. P. Dutton), on which the present translation was actually by and large based. Evidently Roman Jakobson, living in Prague at the time, helped the translator, Vaclav Koenig, by repeatedly writing to Zamiatin and even requesting a copy of the English translation (Olshanskaya, 266). This translation even preceded the severely altered version of the Russian original that appeared in the Russian emigre journal "Volia Rossii", also in early 1927. In order to avoid repercussions for Zamyatin, who was then still living in the Soviet Union, the editor of "Volia Rossii" had pretended to publish a translation of a Czech literary work. Nevertheless, "the apearance of the Russian version in Volia Rossii caused an open political campaign against Zamiatin in the Soviet Union, and in 1931 he wrote a letter to Stalin requesting permission to emigrate" (Olshansky, 267). The Czech translation is rare, with KVK, OCLC showing only the copies at the Czech National Library and in Ljubljana.
