All volumes of The Forsyte Saga include a fold-out Forsyte family tree. There is a Times Book Club label on the rear pastedown of Satires. John Galsworthy (18671933) was a novelist and playwright, whose place in the history of English literature rests on the vast social chronicle comprising his three trilogies, The Forsyte Saga (1922), A Modern Comedy (1929) and End of the Chapter (1935). He returned to the Forsyte family in 1918 with a short story Indian Summer of a Forsyte. A chance remark by his god-daughter, Dorothy Ivens, on reading the story led to In Chancery (1920), which concludes at a clearly defined point of change with the funeral of Queen Victoria. To Let (1921), set in 1920, is placed precisely in the contemporary historical moment, and written in a more impressionist style, capturing the post-war atmosphere of restless gaiety, with its undercurrent of nihilism. The Man of Property (which became the first volume of The Forsyte Saga, but was a separate novel in itself), was widely regarded by contemporaries as confirming the end of Victorianism. It is a typically Edwardian novel in its focus on the conflict between property and art, and draws its emotional power to some degree from Galsworthy's own family relationships, particularly his affair with Ada Galsworthy. The Forsyte family represents the distinctive ideology of the English commercial upper-middle class. Its instinct of possession, its sole means of self-definition and evolution, is distilled in the portrait of the dry solicitor and art collector Soames Forsyte and his tortured relationship with his wife, Irene. Soames's obsessive love for his daughter Fleur is pursued in the second trilogy, A Modern Comedy (1929), comprising The White Monkey (1924), The Silver Spoon (1926), and Swan Song (1928). Galsworthy's fiction centres on his own social class, whose instincts and ideology he largely repudiates. He is critical of its insularity, materialism, aesthetic deficiency, chauvinism, restrictive moral codes, and imperialism. His exploration of the febrile world of 1920s society includes his treatment of the general strike, in which Fleur and her friends are caught up, and culminates with the death of Soames. Though critical interest had waned, this second trilogy was extremely popular, and Swan Song, with its greater social depth, emotional range, and narrative subtlety, is among the best of Galsworthy's writing - DNB. Condition: The bindings are tight and firm. There isslight wear to the extremities, includingslight bumping, and some slight marks to the boards. Internally the pages are bright and clean. There is some foxing to the endpapers of A Stoic and The Apple Tree. There are occasional spots on The Forsyte Saga Volume II. There is very slight browning to the endpapers of The Dark Flower. There is some slight browning and chipping to the exposed edge of the pull-out family tree in Awakening To Let. Overall the condition is very good indeed..

        To the Lighthouse

      London: Published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press, 1927. London: Published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press, 1927 First edition, first printing. One of 3,000 copies. Publisher&#39;s bright blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt. Near fine, with some light wear to the extremities, minor toning to the spine, newspaper article "To the Lighthouse" by Denys Val Baker adhered to the front pastedown, offsetting from the newspaper to the front free endpaper, similar offsetting to the rear endpapers, otherwise bright and fresh pages. Overall, a clean and pleasing copy. Kirkpatrick A10a. Woolmer 154. To the Lighthouse takes place in three parts in three different time periods. The first section takes place before World War I in the afternoon and evening, while the second part covers a span of ten years, during which time WWI occurs and many of the previously introduced characters die. The final section takes place in the morning as the remaining characters come to terms with their losses, each of which were directly or indirectly related to the Great War. Through this sequence, Woolf skillfully creates a cohesive narrative that counteracts the traditional assumption that life after WWI was completely unrelated and detached from the antebellum period. Like many of Woolf&#39;s novels, the text is centered around philosophy and perception rather than action sequences and dialogue. To the Lighthouse remains one of the most acclaimed English language novels as well as one of both Virginia and Leonard&#39;s favorites. Additionally, To the Lighthouse is perhaps Woolf&#39;s most autobiographical novel, with the heads of the Ramsay family representing her own parents.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        Wistaria. Written by Witter Bynner for Rosalie and Sigmund Stern, Atherton California

      San Francisco:: John Henry Nash,, 1927. First Edition. Paperback. Very Good. Ansel Easton Adams (1902-1984). Folio Bifold. 14 x 9 1/2 inches. [4] pp. Front cover printed in black, Bynner&#39;s poem, Wistaria, printed in black on page [3], lovely initial "W" printed in black and brown, brown rules, mounted black-and-white photograph of wisteria vine on the portico of the Stern&#39;s home tipped-in at page [3]; text clean, unmarked. Printed on fine handmade paper, folded once; toned, especially at the edges of the covers. SCARCE. Very Good. This bifold contains a Parmelian Print by Ansel Easton Adams (1902-1984), and is printed by John Henry Nash (1871-1947). There is no bibliography of John Henry Nash&#39;s prodigious output of ephemeral material. Therefore providing a full bibliographical record of this item is tricky. The Clark Library has a copy from the Carey McWilliams collection and has it dated [1923]. However, Jonathan Spaulding, in his biography of Adams, Ansel Adams and the American Landscape, indicates that Adams first came into contact with Rosalie (b. 1869) and Sigmund Stern in 1926, through an introduction by Albert Bender, who first called Adams&#39; photographs "Parmelian Prints" for the portfolio Parmelian Prints of the High Sierras. The University of Arizona, Center for Creative Photography, has a gelatin silver print of "Mrs. Sigmund Stern, Atherton, California" with the same view of the house and a nearly identical image to that in this bifold, with the exception that Mrs. Stern is standing in the frame of the University of Arizona image, but Mrs. Stern is absent from the image in this bifold. The University of Arizona, Center for Creative Photography, has confirmed that the Ansel Adams Papers archived at the University of Arizona shows that the image was captured sometime in the spring of 1927.

        Lazarus Laughed

      NY: Boni & Liveright, 1927. First edition, limited issue. This is copy #371 of 775 numbered copies, signed by O&#39;Neill. Original patterned boards & white paper backstrip, printed paper label on spine. Lower spine partly chipped away, also chipped at the top of the spine, affecting the title label. Some splitting to inner front hinge, shelf wear to tips; otherwise a very good copy in general. The inner front cover bears the bookplate of Amelia Earhart; there are no other ownership marks. This book is mentioned in Susan Butler&#39;s biography of Amelia Earhart: "East to the Dawn" (2012), on page 358: "Amelia had sent out from Rye the most precious of her books, some dating from her school years; an Ivanhoe she had doodled in, books of verse, a three-volume edition of Kipling, the sonnets of Edna St. Vincent Millay, and a signed first edition of Lazarus Laughed by Eugene O&#39;Neill." This bookplate is identical to others of hers which we have seen, and although we have no record of provenance, we believe this to be her copy of Lazarus Laughed. This book was purchased privately by the present owner from a gentleman in Honolulu, some years ago.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Villeneuve (Vaud), 3. X. 1927.. 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-8vo.. An Herrn Schlüter, den Herausgeber von "Pantheon: Werke der Nobelpreisträger" (Leipzig, 1928), mit dem Ausdruck seines Bedauerns, für dessen Anthologie kein Vorwort schreiben zu können: "Je regrette sincerement de ne pouvoir ecrire la Preface que vous me demandez pour votre Anthologie. Les taches multiples et pressants qui m'occupent ne me permettent pas de m'en distraire.Pourquoi ne demanderiez-vous pas cette Preface au secretaire du Nobelkommitte Svenska Akademiens, Stockholm? Mieux que personne, il serait designe pour presenter au public les divers ecrivains europeens que le Comite Nobel a elus. Chaque election est d'ailleurs accompagne d'une publication par le Comite d'un excellent rapport sur les auteurs et les oeuvres. Il n'aurait qu'a resumer et fondre ensemble ces rapports [...] P. S. Sur votre liste, il est question des Gedichte' de Prudhomme. En France, nul ne reconnaitrait le poete dont il s'agit. Il faut toujours le nommer: Sully-Prudhomme".
