      Methuen, London 1927 - x, 103 p. Illus. Green leather, spine a bit faded, some edge wear and wear at top of spine. Owner's signature on half title. Cracked at pp. 36-37. Slight wear. Small ink mark on text block edge. Tape marks inside where two added illustrations have come loose. The Book and Magazine Collector lists the DeLuxe edition as having been issued in blue, green, or red leather binding, with a slipcase. This item no longer has a slipcase. Ann Thwaite in 'The Brilliant Career of Winnie The Pooh' states that it was published on October 13, 1927 in both England and America. The owner's signature is dated 4.11.27 so she was an early and keen owner! Dorothy Parker, a keen reader in another way, printed her classic review in November 1927. "But I too have a very strong feeling about the Whimsicality of Milne. I'm feeling it right now. It's in my stomach." Fortunately, the rest of the world did not agree with Parker about this enduring classic. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        FROISSART'S CRONYCLES., Translated by Sir John Bourchier, Lord Berners.

      (Oxford, 1927) - 8 volumes. 7 x 9 1/2. 1486 pages. Decorated with 6 hand colored maps, heraldic headpieces & tail pieces, and over 600 hand colored coats-of-arms of English, Scottish, and Irish princes and knights drawn by Paul Woodroffe. Text includes lengthy indices of persons and places, Holland-backed blue paper boards, paper spine labels (extra labels tipped-in at rear). A little wear to labels. A fine, beautiful set. One of 350 sets printed by Bernard Newdigate on untrimmed Batchelor handmade paper. One of the three major works issued at Shakespeare Head Press, which "became the most mature and sophisticated of the [between war] private presses, producing some works in the grand manner which are a great pleasure to read and examine now." Colin Franklin goes on to say (The Private Presses pp. 147-149) "Newdigate must stand as the best user of Caslon in the history of book design, of pure typography as adequate in itself." Froissart's chronicles, 1322-1400, describes the conditions leading to the Hundred Years War, and the first 50 years of that war, and the age of chivalryy. With the printed publisher's note. This translation, first printed by Pynson in 1523. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Tirage limité à 287 EXEMPLAIRES, celui-ci un des 235 numérotés sur vergé de Montval (n°110). «Dans toutes ces planches domine un ton d'ocre pâle; la gravure du trait est tirée dans un gris qui sert aussi à des indications de modelé. Un rose délicat anime les nus de rehauts discrets. Parfois un vert, un bleu, un rouge, jette une note vive. Mais ce sont les noirs surtout, des noirs profonds dont l'artiste a su jouer avec une rare maîtrise, qui mettent en valeur et font chanter les harmonies légères de ces charmantes évocations. Sylvain Sauvage nous donne seulement l'image stylisée d'une sensualité très près de la nature, d'une franchise parée de simple poésie?» (Marcel Valotaire). RAVISSANT EXEMPLAIRE dans une reliure en maroquin décoré de Louis et Henri CREUZEVAULT.

        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.

        THE AFRICAN SAGA. Translated from L'Anthologie Negre by Margery Bianco.

      Pason and Clarke Ltd.,, New York 1927 - First American Edition. First English Language Edition originally published in Paris as Anthologie Negre*, in 1921. 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".

Wenige Seiten der Bände I bis IV minimal randfleckig, Bei den Bänden V bis VII Kopfschnitt etwas fleckig; Seiten sonst sauber und fleckenfrei.
