        TO THE LIGHTHOUSE. With TLS on Monk's House Stationary Dated 3rd Jan. 1928.

      Hogarth Press, London 1927 - Woolf, Virginia. TO THE LIGHTHOUSE. London: The Hogarth Press, 1927. First Edition of Virginia Woolf's fifth novel. "In writing To The Lighthouse, Woolf consciously used her own childhood memories of summer vacations in St. Ives, Cornwall, at Talland House (from where she could see the Godrevy Lighthouse) and drew portraits of her parents, Leslie Stephen and Julia Prinsep Stephen, in the figures of Mr. and Mrs. Ramsay. Woolf noted in her Diary, "to have father's character done complete in it; & mother's; & St. Ives; & childhood; & all the usual things I try to put in - life, death, & c". Hussey, Mark. 8vo. 320 pp. A fine copy in blue cloth, gilt titles to the spine in a lovely example of the Vanessa Bell designed dustwrapper showing modest use, a few tiny small pink stains and a modest fade to the spine panel. An excellent example. With a TLS on Monk's House stationary dated 3rd Jan. 1928 laid-in. "Dear Sir, I am sorry that I cannot arrange to sit to you as you ask me, but I am staying down here in the country. Yours faithfully/Virginia Woolf". It is well-documented that Woolf disliked sitting for photographers or artists and it wasn't until 1930 that she finally agreed to sit for Stephen Tomlin whose 1931 bust of her is in the garden at Monk's House and the National Gallery, the original at Charleston. Kirkpatrick and Clarke A10a. Woolmer 154. Connolly, The Modern Movement #54. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Revolt in the Desert

      London, Jonathan Cape, , 1927. Quarto. Original quarter brown pigskin on sand buckram, title gilt to spine, top edge gilt, others untrimmed Coloured portrait frontispiece and 10 other similar plates, 8 uncoloured plates, folding map at the rear. Rubbed at extremities with small worn spots at the ends of the spine, edges of boards faded, spotting to endpapers, map toned. A very good copy. First English edition, large paper issue, limited to 315 numbered copies, of which 300 were for sale. The costs for production of the 1926 Seven Pillars of Wisdom had ballooned to such an extent that Lawrence was contemplating selling either his library or some of his property to clear the debt. Eventually he settled on an abridgement, undertaken in 1926 by Lawrence himself with the help of some of his fellow servicemen, an earlier attempt by Edward Garnett having been set aside. Published in March 1927 in Great Britain and America, in both limited and general issues, three impressions were soon sold out and two more quickly added. The profits from this publication made the fortunes of the Cape publishing house.

        An Elucidation. Printed in Transition.

      Paris: Transition, April 1927 - 8 page pamphlet, staple-bound. Original yellow wrappers printed in black. Housed in a custom artist's solander case. Wrappers tanned and very lightly rubbed. An excellent copy. First separate edition, offprinted from the Transition literary magazine. Presentation copy inscribed by Stein on the verso of the upper wrapper, "To Jamie Sabartes from Gertrude Stein". Sabartes was a poet and the friend and long-time assistant of Pablo Picasso. Stein's poem "An Elucidation" was originally printed in the first issue of Transition, which "while containing the correct words, presented them in the wrong order (through an inadvertence in the printing establishment)"(editor Elliot Paul's introduction to the present). This offprint was included as a supplement loosely inserted in the first issue to correct the mistake and is now rare, particularly so inscribed. Wilson A10. [Attributes: First Edition]

        RUTH SNYDER';S OWN TRUE STORY. "THIS IS THE ONLY TRUE AND AUTHORIZED STORY OF MY LIFE--SO HELP ME GOD!"

      King Features Syndicate, Inc, [New York] 1927 - 48pp. Printed in tabloid style, in 2 columns and on paper resembling newsprint (and possibly ghost-written by the king of tabloid writing, Jack Lait) Ruth Snyder's Own True Story is a high point of the True Crime genre. The tale of the first woman to be executed by electrocution, Ruth's story had all the elements to excite the public imagination -- a blonde, blue-eyed beauty in an unfulfilling marriage enters into an affair with a handsome married man (a corset salesman, no less). Together (and fueled by alcohol -- this was after all the middle of Prohibition!) they murdered Snyder's hapless husband. Snyder supposedly wrote out her account -- her "own true story" -- in her cell at Sing-Sing, using a typewriter lent to her by Jack Lait.~Illustrated by rather grainy black and white photographs of all the players, including Snyder's daughter. Snyder's sensational story was the basis for James M. Cain's Double Indemnity (adapted for the screen by Billy Wilder and Raymond Chandler). Ron Hansen's novel A Wild Surge of Guilty Passion is based on Snyder's story as well. Tom Howard's actual photograph of Ruth Snyder as she's being electrocuted made it onto the front page of the New York Daily News the next day and is one of the iconic images of the era. A scarce and fragile item (we locate only 2 institutional holdings). In the original orange wrappers, with an old scotch tape repair to the spine. Good binding.
