        Exhibitors Herald. The Independent Film Trade Paper (Vol. 30, June 18, 1927 - September 10, 1927)

      NP n/d - Thirteen issues (all complete) bound in brown cloth with gold lettering on spine. Seven issues in two parts. Includes all original printed and illustrated orange front and rear wraps. The Exhibitors Herald was founded in 1915 as a film trade magazine for independent exhibitors and distributors. One of the publisher's and editor's was Catholic layman Martin J. Quigley. In 1927 the periodical combined with the Moving Picture World and in 1931 merged with the Motion Picture Herald, which united all major 'film' weeklies. The magazine provides an invaluable source of information from the silent-film era. Many of the films were lost and trade journals like the Exhibitors Herald entail plot synopses, new releases, reviews, information on actors, directors, writers, producers, etc., production, photographs and many illustrations, as well as stunning graphic advertisements. Each issue includes the classic column "What the Picture did for Me" (Verdicts on films in language of exhibitor ), in which theater owners from across the country share their experiences of every release. Profusely illustrated with b/w reproductions of photographs of artists such as Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Mary Pickford, Gloria Swanson, Douglas Fairbanks, Norma Talmadge, John Barrymore, D. W. Griffith, Harold Lloyd, Fay Wray, Norma Shearer, Lon Chaney, James Cruze, William Powell, Victor Fleming, Billy Butts, Anna Q. Nilsson, Victor McLaglen, William Boyd, Rudolph Schildkraut, Dolores Del Rio, Ernst Lubitsch, John Ford, Josef von Sternberg, Donald Crisp, Lewis Milestone, Eric von Stroheim, and many others. Includes many movie advertisements in rich vibrant colors, some with photomontages, others in drawings. Includes sixteen-page section of Tiffany Productions for 1927-1928, profusely illustrated with reproductions of drawings in duo tone. Some age wear, staining and scuffing on cloth. All wrappers and interior in very good to near fine condition. Scarce 1927's film journals with hundreds of illustrations in brilliant colors. Consecutive run from June 18, 1927 - September 10, 1927.

Introduction, foreword with table of the 591 languages & dialects of Africa, extensive bibliography. Lg. 8vo., pp.378, dialect key map ep's, black topstain, stunning African inspired & designed black & ochre printed cloth with small decorative illustrations in-text. This is a fine copy [neat name on the half title] in a very good example of the rare matching design dustwrapper showing very light use [spine slightly darkened, minor chips at the extremities & a 1" shallow horizontal chip at the top of the rear panel]. Contains 103 original folk-tales, compiled from all over Africa, all of which were chosen by one of the 20th century's most important French poets. The translator, Margery Bianco was Margery (Bianco) Williams, author of "The Velveteen Rabbit." A major undertaking & acknowledged masterpiece, this volume brings to the English speaking world, for the very first time, the rich & sensitive images gathered from the Bantu, Haussa, Hottentot, Sumali & others. "And so in this anthology we have not only the wit & wisdom of Africa but the soul of a people which may be judged by the criteria of pure letters" - from the intro. by Arthur B. Spingarn. An important work by this master traveler, cubist, poet & novelist who impacted directly on the thinking of Max Jacob, Apollinaire, Cocteau & Andre Salmon with his innovative poetic techniques & revolutionary observations. A handsome & important production indeed. * Talvart And Place, Vol. II, Pp. 333 # 12. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Rhein-Verlag 1927 - Translated by Georg Goyert. Basel: Rhein-Verlag, 1927. Three volumes. Original half morocco over patterned paper boards, gilt morocco lettering-pieces, the spines numbered in gilt, top edges gilt, others uncut. FIRST EDITION IN GERMAN, LIMITED TO 1000 COPIES, THIS NUMBER 1 SIGNED BY JOYCE. THE FIRST PUBLISHED UNDER JOYCE'S SUPERVISION. A German edition of Ulysses was originally planned by Deutsche Verlag in 1924, but failed to appear. The project was then taken over by Joyce's German publisher Rhein-Verlag, who held a competition to find a translator for Ulysses. The competition was won by Georg Goyert and in August 1926 he met with Joyce in Ostend to revise the text. Joyce's reaction to the publication schedule was ambivalent; as he wrote to Harriet Shaw Weaver, Last week the entire typescript of Ulysses in German arrived and on top of it the German translator to revise it with me. We work together all day practically, word for word. They want to bring it out in October! I hope the German publisher won't rush the translation--and me (letter of 29 August 1926, J. Joyce Letters (London: 1957-1966) III, p.142). However, the writer's fears were realised, and in November he expressed his annoyance to his brother Stanislaus Joyce thus: The Germans, having given me four days at Ostende, to revise the translation with the translator (we did 88 pages) are now rushing the translation into print. It is of course full of the absurdest errors and with large gaps. Such is financial literature (letter of 5 November 1926, J. Joyce op. cit., III, p.145). But, despite his initial trepidation, Joyce seems to have been pleased with the edition when it appeared in Autumn 1927, and he wrote to Daniel Brody of Rhein-Verlag on receipt of a copy to congratulate him on the fine production of the work: [Gestatten Sie dass ich Ihnen meinen besten Dank ausdrücke für Ihre höfliche Gedacht. Die Ausgabe ist wirklich sehr schön und geschmackvoll und hoffentlich wird sie auch in materiellen sowohl als in literarischem Sinn ein Lohn für alle Ihre Bemühungen (letter of 6 November 1927, J. Joyce op. cit. III, p.165). However, the writer's fears were realised, and in November he expressed his annoyance to his brother Stanislaus Joyce thus: The Germans, having given me four days at Ostende, to revise the translation with the translator (we did 88 pages) are now rushing the translation into print. It is of course full of the absurdest errors and with large gaps. Such is financial literature. The publication was successful, and on 19 November Joyce sent a postcard to Claud W. Sykes stating that The edition was sold out in 3 weeks (J. Joyce op. cit. III, p.167). The limited edition of 1,000 copies for sale was issued in a half morocco binding (as here) and in green wrappers; as Slocum and Cahoon note, The emphasis on the private nature of the publication and the strict limitation of copies was caused by some fear that Ulysses might be subject to censorship.

      Paris Shakespeare and Company 1927 - First Edition, ninth printing, and the true Paris issue of the 1927 printing. Square 8vo, bound in the publisher’s original blue wraps formatted as the first edition of 1922, printed and lettered in white on the upper cover and spine. [6], 735 pp. An especially well preserved and handsome copy, especially so for the original wrappers and textblock which remains largely unopened and pristine. A fine copy of the original "Shakespeare and Company" --Sylvia Beach-- advertising card is still enclosed, the text block very fine, the wrappers with only some minor and expected mellowing or evidence of age, but clearly an unused, unread copy and quite rare thus. SCARCE EARLY PRINTING OF ULYSSES. THE RARE TRUE SHAKESPEARE AND COMPANY 1927 PRINTING IN UNREAD, UNOPENED, PRISTINE STATE. The most important novel of the twentieth century . ULYSSES can be viewed as the pinnacle of the Modernist movement, and its impact on all subsequent western literature is unmistakable. Such writers as Virginia Woolf, John Dos Passos, William Faulkner, Samuel Beckett, Malcolm Lowry, and Anthony Burgess have all paid tribute, consciously or unconsciously, to Joyce's influence. Burgess as well pronounced it the greatest single work in the English literature of this century, and he is not alone in that opinion. According to James Spoerri, "This fortunate combination of printer and publisher resulted in the appearance of ULYSSES as a book whose physical aspect is particularly suited to its content. It is (an). inviting volume, the blue and white of its covers subtly evocative of the Greece whose epic it so closely parallels" (quoted in the catalogue for the Garden Sale, Sotheby's 1989).

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

      New York: Two Worlds Publishing Company, [July 1926–September 1927] - 11 volumes, octavo. Original white and beige wrappers printed in red and black. Volume II number 4 with the original wrap-around band. A fine set. Unauthorized printing of 13 bowdlerized episodes from Ulysses by the New York publisher Samuel Roth (1893–1974). The set was originally released as 11 individual instalments containing 13 episodes. It was later published as two bound volumes containing 14 episodes including the final instalment (Vol. III, no. 4) that was never released separately and so is not included here. The publisher Samuel 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. A fine set, exceptionally scarce in this condition. Slocum & Cahoon C68.

        Winston Churchill

      London: Mills & Boon, Limited,, 1927. Being an Account of the Life of the Right Hon. Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill, P.C., C.H., T.D., M.P. Octavo. Original blue cloth, title gilt to the spine and to the upper board within a blind double fillet panel. Portrait frontispiece and 7 other plates. A little rubbed, particularly at the extremities, endpapers lightly browned, foxing to the fore-edge, else very good. First edition. The author's own copy, with his bookplate to the front pastedown, and a one-page typed letter signed from Churchill mounted on the front free endpaper. In the letter he thanks Roberts for sending him a copy of the book, explaining; "Although … I would rather that nothing of this kind had been published, yet I should like to recognise the great consideration and courtesy with which you have treated me, and to thank you for all the friendly things you say". Churchill writes on Chartwell stationery, the letter dated 29 September 1927, one day before the publication of the book. More than twenty pages of clipped reviews are mounted on blanks bound in after the Index, a four-page printed synopsis has been tipped in before the half-title, and Roberts has annotated the imprint to show the two subsequent editions, or rather impressions, of 1927. A "fourth edition", with a current evaluation of the new Prime Minister, was published by Newnes in 1940. Roberts is a rather obscure miscellaneous writer who contributed to Orage's The New Era on a variety of subjects, published a number of books on spiritualism having met Gurdijeff while travelling in Russia in 1919, but is best known for a slew of true crime and crime fiction publications in the 1930s. Roberts dedicates the book to the Countess of Birkenhead, having previously written a biography of the Earl, F.E. Smith, Churchill's parliamentary sparring partner, and co-founder of The Other Club. Roberts's odd nom de plume is drawn from his admiration for Smith: "F.E.-sian".

        The Twenty-Third Psalm

      Rome, Italy, 1927. This edition is in English, not in Italian. With a preface by Enrico Sartorio. This edition is strictly limited to one hundred signed copies, of which this is copy no. 5, owned by Mrs. Antoinette Murphy, and with the artist's signature in a neat black ink hand, "Paschetto, Paolo." This edition was privately printed in Rome, Italy. There is no printer's attribution save for the vague reference, Grafia, Rome. Printed on P. M. Fabriano paper. Full vellum binding, likely from lamb or kid, and thus quite appropriate to the theme of the Psalm, the Lord charged with the well-being of a flock of sheep. To the front board a stamped-in, three-color image of Jesus carrying on his shoulders a lamb. No lettering whatever to the spine or boards. The spine is attractively hubbed. Virtually unbumbed spine head and tail, and with fairly sharp corners, except that the upper corners are moderately bumped. 15.25 x 13.25 inches. The binding is in excellent condition and the hinges are strong. The text block is firmly bound in. Approximately 34 unnumbered pages, including the preliminaries. The design of the title page and the decorations throughout the book are by Paul Paschetto. With nine original woodcuts by Paschetto, all full-page, signed and dated, and tipped in. Paschetto's signature is in the form of a round device, evocative of Carolingian name devices for kings and noble persons, but also highly reminiscent of the censor seals found on certain Japanese ukiyo-e prints. With a line in black ink from the Psalm on the page opposite each wood-cut, the lines with capitals in red and with surrounds in a very pale green, lending a sort of light, celestial effect. An exceptionally clean copy, and rather tight. Very gently read. No slipcase. A Very Good Plus copy over all, with all tipped-in wood-cut illustrations in Fine condition. The artist, Paolo Paschetto, 1885-1963, was a devout Christian who apparently regarded his iconographic art as a calling or avocation as much as a profession. He served as a professor at the Royal Academy of Art in Rome. He was known in Italy as one of the foremost black-and-white artists and illustrators.. Signed by Illustrator. First Edition Thus. Full-Leather. Very Good Plus. Illus. by Paschetto, Paul; Paschetto, Paolo. Limited Edition.

With its cover by Juan Gris ("A don Luis," completed shortly before his death), full-color Picasso lithographic still life, and drawing by Salvador Dali ("Hommage to Góngora"), this fourth issue of LITORAL is a landmark of Spanish surrealism. But even more than that, it represents one of the galvanizing events of the Generation of '27, whose first meeting, like this issue, commemorated the 300th anniversary of the death of Luis de Góngora. Among the poets that came to define that generation, included in this issue are Vicente Aleixandre, Manuel Altolaguirre, Jose Bergamin, Rogelia Buendia, Luis Cernuda, Gerardo Diego, Federico Garcia Lorca, Pedro Garfias, Jorge Guillen, Juan Larrea, Emilio Prados, Joaquín Romero Murube, and Adriano del Valle.

        Sea and Sardinia

      London: Martin Secker,, 1927. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt. Spine and edges of boards faded, light dampstaining and marking to boards, endpapers mildly foxed, occasional faint spotting to text. A very good copy. Presentation copy inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "Lilian Gair Wilkinson, from D. H. Lawrence, with many thanks for her kindness & her cake. 26 July 1927". Wilkinson, her husband and children were Lawrence's English neighbours when he and Frieda lived in Florence. In a letter to his niece Margaret 'Peg' King in 1926 Lawrence mentions that the Wilkinsons, who used to tour England with their puppet show, would send her "into fits" if she met them, adding that he is trying to persuade them to bring their show to Italy, for which he has offered to "bang the drum in the Italian villages". Lawrence's hugely compelling and often very funny diary of his and Frieda's stay in Sardinia was originally published in the US in 1921, and in the UK in 1923; this is the UK third edition.

      - 1927 omputation of the coefficient of spontaneous emission of an atom (Wikipedia). He "supplied a systematic procedure for transferring the characteristic quantum phenomenon of discreteness of physical quantities from the quantum mechanical treatment of particles to a corresponding treatment of field. Employing the quantum mechanical theory of the harmonic oscillator, Dirac gave a theoretical description of how photons appear in the quantization of the electromagnetic radiation field. Later, Dirac's procedure became a model for the quantization of other fields as well" (Stanford website). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Harrison and Sons. In Proceedings of the Royal Society of London, Series A. Vol. CXIV. Entire volume. Quarto (10 x 7 inches; 250 x 175mm).

        Outskirt Episodes.

      Des Moines, Iowa: Success Composition & Printing Co., 1927. - 8vo., (8 x 5 ½ inches). Photograph of the author tipped in on title page. Original publisher's maroon cloth, front cover and spine lettered in gilt; dust jacket (large strip missing from dust jacket). First edition. "The author of this story was fitted from childhood for the wild, turbulent life he experienced in the wild and woolly west of early days. While unschooled in books, his skill with horse an gun gave him a wide acquaintance on the outskirts where mounted vagabonds lived a very romantic, exciting life. It is along this line of outdoor life, where every man was a law unto himself, that he speaks between these covers of these unusual incidents" (Introductory). The episodes in this volume recount the adventures of the outlaws in the Rocky Mountains during the great westward expansion of the Union Pacific Railroad. "This rare book is the personal narrative of the author's life and adventures in the Wyoming country and his experiences among the Rocky Mountain outlaws in the days when the Union Pacific was building westward. The author tells about Tom Horn's killings and his execution" (Adams). Tom Horn (1860-1903) was an Old West lawman, scout, soldier, hired gunman, detective, outlaw, and assassin. During his four years as a Pinkerton detective he participated in regular shoot-outs, killing seventeen men, outstripping many of the more famous Western gunmen. Ironically, he was hanged in Cheyenne, Wyoming, the day before his 43rd birthday, for a murder that he likely did not commit.

      London: Ernest Benn Limited, 1927., 1927. First edition. 8vo. One of only 250 copies signed by the author. Fine copy in printed wrappers. Queen's Quorum says "... a decade before, Susan Glaspell had written a one-act play called 'Trifles,' suggested by a murder acccount she had read in an Iowa newspaper, After the play had become famous, Miss Glaspell recast the material into a short story and titled it A JURY OF HER PEERS. like the play, the short story became a celebrated piece of literature. It was first printed in 'Every Week,' issue of May 5, 1917, and later reprinted by Edward J. O'Brien in his THE BEST SHORT STORIES OF 1917. The story, however has never been included in any of Susan Glaspell's own books published in America; but what is not generally known ... and this is an important bibliographic revelation .... is that the story has had a separate book publication in England. The first edition of A JURY OF HER PEERS is one of the series of Benn's Yellow Books and 'consists of 250 copies for sale, each of which is signed by the author.' This beautifully wrought tale of murder, 'morbidly frugal in expression, but candidly naked in substance' represents pure New England Gothic ... and pure artistry." In a rural community in turn-of-the century Iowa, men search a farmer's bedroom for evidence of his murderer. Meanwhile, downstairs in the kitchen, two women choose to hide the evidence that would provide their neighbor's motive for killing her husband. QUEEN'S QUORUM 75.
