        To The Lighthouse

      London: Published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press, 1927 First edition, first printing. One of 3,000 copies. Publisher's bright blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt. A very good copy, with some minor wear to the extremities, light toning to the spine, spotting to the page edges and front endpapers, former owner's signature dated in the year of publication to the front pastedown, a few scattered spots to the otherwise bright and clean pages. A tight and presentable 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'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's favorites. Additionally, To the Lighthouse is perhaps Woolf's most autobiographical novel, with the heads of the Ramsay family representing her own parents.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        In Our Time: Stories by Ernest Hemingway

      New York: Boni & Liverwright, 1927. First edition, stated Second Printing, March 1927. 1925 date at title page. Significantly less common than first printing of 1,335 printed. Black full cloth boards, gilt cover design and spine title w/embossed publishing insignia, lt. shelf wear. Intriguing geometric cover design. Pages fine. Beautiful facsimile of original second printing jacket protected in clear sleeve. Very attractive antique owner's bookplate at frt. endp. Near fine example in new dj. When In Our Time was first published in 1925, it was praised by Ford Madox Ford, John Dos Passos, and F. Scott Fitzgerald for its simple, precise use of language to convey a wide range of complex emotions. It earned Hemingway a place beside Sherwood Anderson and Gertrude Stein - considered the most promising American writers of the period. Contains several early Hemingway classics, including the famous Nick Adams stories "Indian Camp," "The Doctor and the Doctor's Wife," "The Three Day Blow," "The Battler," and "Big Two-Hearted River." This volume introduces readers to the hallmarks of the Hemingway style: a sharp, lean prose -- enlivened by an aptitude for the every-day and an eye for the realistic that suggests, through the simplest of statements, a sense of moral value and clarity of heart. Recognized as one of the most original short story collections in twentieth-century literature and provides a key to Hemingway's later works. 215 pages. Insured post. . First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/New. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall.

        Metropolis (Original UK Program for the 1927 film)

      London: Wardour Films / UFA, 1927. Original program for the London premiere of the film on March 21st, 1927 at the Marble Arch Pavilion, preceded in English by the US release earlier that month but with different title cards. Director Lang's expressionist masterpiece, based on the novel and written for the screen by then-wife von Harbou, one of the most enduring and influential films of the silent era.& & In addition to the normal synopsis, photos, and quotes from the actors, the program presents pieces on the film's groundbreaking special effects and camerawork, and, most interestingly, a side-by-side comparison of a portion of the film script with von Harbou's novel, published the previous year. Any original paper relating to "Metropolis" is scarce, with a recent post in Peter Harrington's The Cataloguer's Desk ranking this program among the most difficult items, they having only ever handled three. Needless to say, this is the only copy we have ever seen. & & Very Good plus in stapled wrappers. Owner stamp to the title page. Wrappers lightly creased horizontally and vertically, front wrapper lightly faded and rubbed, light foxing to the rear wrapper with tiny ink initials to the upper corner. & & Milligan, p. 109.

        Typed Letter, signed ("Ernest Hemingway"), to George Norton Northrop

      Hendaye, France, september 8, 1927. Oblong 8vo. 1 p. typed with 2 corrections in manuscript. Old folds. Letter is tipped-in at rear of later printing (1927) of The Sun Also Rises. Not in Selected Letters (ed. Baker). Provenance: by descent through the Northrop family . Hemingway writes to George Norton Northrop, former Headmaster of The Brearley School. Hemingway and Northrop had a mutual acquaintance in F. Scott Fitzgerald, who is referred to in the letter as "Scott." Reading in part, "I was very sorry not to have gotten your note enclosing Scott's card until it was too late to answer - When you come to Paris again you must let me know beforehand and dine with us - Please remember me to Scott when you write him. I owe him a letter and many other things -" Hemingway would have considered himself in debt to Fitzgerald for several reasons. In a letter dated April 1927 Fitzgerald had sent Hemingway a check for $100 to help him get by while we waited for income from Men Without Women. Fitzgerald had advised Hemingway on the opening chapter of The Sun Also Rises, published the previous year: "He showed the carbon copy of the Sun Also Rises to Scott Fitzgerald who now, in full sobriety, said it was an excellent book. But he recommended a number of internal cuts in the opening chapters. His arguments were so persuasive that Ernest resolved at once to lop off the first fifteen pages -" (Baker, Ernest Hemingway, p. 170). Fitzgerald had also persuaded his editor Maxwell Perkins to take The Torrents of Spring and The Sun Also Rises sight-unseen after Boni & Liveright had rejected Torrents. Hemingway wrote to Fitzgerald the following week, in a letter dated December 15, 1927, and belatedly thanks his friend for the loan of $100 and mentions his correspondence with Northrop, "I got your check cashed it like a son of a bitch without writing and never wrote - Please Scott forgive me for being such a turd about not writing or acknowledging the check. I had a note from Northrup [sic] in Santiago enclosing a card of yours - it came just as he was sailing. So I w[rote] him in Chicago -" A fine letter, documenting the period of earnest friendship and mutual support in the Hemingway-Fitzgerald relationship

We are pleased to offer Churchill collectors a spectacular, jacketed U.S. first edition set of the 1916-1918 volumes of Churchill's The World Crisis in the extravagantly rare original publisher's slipcase. The World Crisis is Winston Churchill's epic history of the First World War, in which he played such a critical, controversial, and varied role. Churchill was in a special position to write this history, having served both in the Cabinet and on the Front. First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 until 1915, after the failure in the Dardanelles and the slaughter at Gallipoli, Churchill was scapegoated and forced to resign. He spent political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Before war's end, Churchill was exonerated and rejoined the Government, but the stigma would linger. Churchill may have meant for his history of the First World War to clear his name, but his six volume masterwork far exceeds this purpose. The U.S. is the true first edition, as U.S. Volume I publication preceded the British. Both the U.S. and British editions were originally published as six individual books between 1923 and 1931. Today, jacketed first editions are remarkably scarce - jacketed U.S. editions even more so. Perhaps most scarce is the original U.S. publisher's slipcase for the 1916-1918 first editions; Charles Scribner's Sons originally issued the two 1916-1918 volumes as a boxed set. The cardboard slipcase bears three pasted labels. A large, 8.25 x 5.75 inch label printed dark red on ivory on the right side of the slipcase bears an extensive blurb about Churchill and the work. A smaller label on the upper spine of the slipcase, likewise printed dark red on ivory, measures 4 x 3.25 inches and bears the title, author, and publisher. A bright orange label on the lower portion of the slipcase spine measuring 3.75 x 3 inches bears black ink print advertising Churchill's preceding World Crisis volumes. These original slipcases are almost never seen. We know of no other dealer who has offered a slipcased set. Here is an absolutely pristine, as new first edition set of the 1916-1918 volumes in fine dust jackets, housed in the original publisher's slipcase. The books themselves are as-new. The bindings are immaculate and improbably bright, with absolutely no wear or flaws to report. The contents are likewise pristine - unreservedly crisp, bright, and clean. The books are clearly unread and appear in virtually the same condition as when they were issued in 1927. We note only a tiny Boston bookseller sticker on the lower left ffep of each volume. The dust jackets are truly fine examples. Both are unclipped, retaining the "$10.00 Two Volumes" price on the front flap. Both jackets are entirely complete with no losses. Trivial flaws are limited to slight toning to the jacket spines, a hint of wear at the spine ends, and a faint one inch scratch to the Volume II lower spine (but no tear). We have fitted both dust jackets with removable, archival quality clear covers. The original publisher's slipcase has done its job protecting the spectacular books and dust jackets within, but has born some expected age and wear in the process. Nonetheless, the slipcase is entirely complete and still in one piece, with all three publisher's labels fully intact. Six of the eight seams are intact; only the short upper and lower horizontal seams at the back of the slipcase are split. There is wear at the opening edges, fraying at the split upper and lower rear seams, and light overall soiling. The slipcase is original and unrestored, but the seam splits are easily repaired with archival tape, at which point the slipcase will regain structural integrity. This beautiful slipcased set is a rare prize for collectors and about as early in the canon as a Churchill collector seeking jacketed first editions can reasonably expect to go.

Shigeo Miyao (1902- 1983) was primarily known as a manga artist creating humorous children's manga such as Kushisuke Manyuki ("The Adventures of Dango Kushisuke") during the Taisho period. He was born in Tokyo and studied manga with Okamoto Ippei (1886-1948), generally considered the godfather of manga. He was one of the first artists to use the word manga (literally, "funny pictures") close to its current sense. "Miyao had the distinction of being one of the first professional artists to specialize in children's comics." In 1922, he began serializing a 6-panel Manga Taro [Comics Taro] in a daily newspaper which the following year was put into book form "just in time for most copies to be destroyed in the 1923 earthquake. In the present book he writes of the adventures of the samurai super-hero, Karutobi Karusuke. (See Schodt, Manga! Manga! The World of Japanese Comics, 1986, p. 48-49.) Sixty-three hits for Miyao in OCLC, all but one after 1948, the earliest being 1934. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Big Lake: A Tragedy in Two Parts

      New York: Samuel French. 1927. First. First edition. Foreword by Barrett H. Clark. Fine in an attractive example of the fragile dustwrapper with a chip at the bottom of the front panel affecting a couple of words on the front panel. Signed by the author on the title page. Riggs, of Cherokee descent, was the first Native-American writer to achieve widespread success as a playwright. This was his first published play, making this almost certainly the first published play by an author of Native-American descent (long predating the works of Hanay Geiogamah and others). His play Green Grow the Lilacs was later adapted by Rodgers and Hammerstein into their first collaboration, the musical play and subsequent film Oklahoma! A very uncommon title. .

        C. Later 1920s Collection of Fine Portrait Photography of Natalie Hays Hammond By Soichi Sunami, Peter A. Juley & Son, Ira L. Hill Studio, Ames & Others

      New York - London, 1927. Collection of fine art portrait photographs of Natalie Hays Hammond (1904-1985) heiress daughter of mining engineer and speculator-developer of mining properties John Hays Hammond who became a painter, Broadway set and costume designer, author, and patron of the arts; includes: portrait by Soichi Sunami (1885-1971) with his blindstamp at bottom right and with his studio stamp on back, 7" x 9 1/2" approx., printed on glossy stock to the edge of the paper, light edgewear, very striking and with a somewhat 'noir' feel to the image, shadows and softening of the clothing, upturned collar, very good-we speculate that Hammond's friendship and work with the famous dancer Martha Graham may have been the 'meeting point' for Sunami and Hammond - the photographer known for his Graham portraiture; Peter A. Juley & Son, the leading fine arts photography firm in New York from 1906 to 1975 and perhaps most famously known for their portraits of artists at work - as this portrait, matte finish in sepia tones 7 1/4" x 9" approx., with studio imprint on back and with the signature in pen lower right 'Juley N Y', of Hammond at studio drawing board, concentrating with pen in hand. A bit of fade towards edges, line of old mount residue on back of cardstock, nevertheless atmospheric, good plus; (3) images taken at Ira L. Hill's Studio, N.Y.C. Ira L. Hill (1877-1947) eccentric and prolific society, fashion and Broadway acting portrait photographer - each with the studio stamp and one with the handwritten 'Natalie Hays Hammond' identified, all on glossy stock, printed to the edge. All different poses, 2 differing clothing outfits, (a) 9" x 11 3/4", light wear, few scratches & tiny abrasions, one corner chipped away, good, (b) 9 3/8" x 11 3/4", light wear, few tiny edge abrasions, very good and (c) 9 1/2" x 12 1/2", top two corners with old crease lines, some other tiny flecking in the body of the image, good; A medium size child portrait of a very young Natalie being held fondly by her father John Hays Hammond (1855-1936) "...the best-known mining engineer in the world..." after his stupendously successful exploits working with Cecil Rhodes in the development of mines in South Africa (DAB) and the source of his daughter's later fortune, in sepia tones gum print, pencil signed Ames below right, image 4 3/4" x 7" approx., hinged at side to heavy paper stock mount, approx. 8 3/4" x 12 1/2" image fine, mount with a bit of edge, tips wear, old mounting hinge residue on back of mount paper, very good; light wear; A photographic portrait of "Miss Natalie Hammond dau. of Mr. & Mrs. John Hays Hammond of Washington marble portrait in Royal Academy exhibition 1926 by Cecil Thomas Permission given to reproduce (signed) Cecil Thomas" by the sculptor, evidently commissioned by the family for the work. 6" x 8" approx., glossy stock, some minor edge, tips wear and soiling on back, very good; and (2) portraits that are unidentified as to studio: 9" x 13" approx. size for both, done in gold tones reminiscent of the best of Arnold Genthe portrait work, subtle lighting effects, soft tones and yet very dramatically posed and taken - some edge, tips wear and corner-creasing, one with two closed edge-tears - with all faults still superb images and perhaps the best-taken of the lot; all in all, a very good group of some of the best of the photo portraiture work taken by well-known society and art photographers of the time; especially interesting to have the ability to compare the same subject taken through the eyes of several master studios' work; N.H. Hammond's former home in North Salem, New York is now part of the Hammond Museum and Japanese Stroll Garden in that community. . Good.

        ELMER GANTRY [James Agee's copy at Phillips Exeter Academy dated March 1927]

      New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, (1927). Hardcover. Good copy, lacking the dustwrapper. An Agee rarity. A later printing, ex-library copy with the bookplate of The Phillips Exeter Academy library on the front pastedown, stamped DISCARDED, of a book made into a film starring Burt Lancaster that won three Academy Awards. An undistinguished copy BUT for the fact that it belonged to James Agee with his SIGNATURE "J R Agee" dated March 1927 on the front free endpaper. This copy later belonged to Henry Darcy Curwen, of the Exeter English faculty, who signed his name below Agee's. In March 1927, Agee, at age 17, was in his "upper-middle" year (junior) at Exeter, an admirer of Sinclair Lewis and already committed to a literary career, submitting poems and stories to the Phillips Exeter Monthly. In one of his early letters to Father Flye (LETTERS OF JAMES AGEE TO FATHER FLYE, pages 27-28) dated Exeter 17 March 1927, Agee writes: "I've bought and read Elmer Gantry, the Lewis satire on religion. It's very disappointing, although excellent in spots. He's turning rancid." Reflecting his own psychological unease at the time, Agee soon expands this somewhat in one of his earliest published critical articles, a review of ELMER GANTRY in the Phillips Exeter Monthly 31 (May 1927): "It is one gigantic crescendo of walloping filthiness, and I have the feeling that it carried Mr. Lewis before it, and left him stranded where not even himself can work his salvation." Early signed Agee material is uncommon, and the important resonance of this copy with his beginning literary efforts can hardly be exaggerated.

        The World Crisis: 1916-1918, Parts I & II, exceedingly rare, jacketed "traveller's" copies issued before the first printing of the normal trade editions

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1927. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good/Very good. The World Crisis" is Winston Churchill's epic and acclaimed history of the First World War, in which he played such a critical, controversial, and varied role. The set was originally published as six individual books between 1923 and 1931. The 1916-1918 Part I & Part II books of 1927 comprise the middle of the set. Any World Crisis first editions in dust jackets are quite rare, but offered here may be the rarest to be had - jacketed "traveller's" copies of the British first edition of the two 1916-1918 books, Parts I & II, which were issued even before the normal first edition, first printing. Per Churchill Bibliographer Ronald Cohen, "There exists an early, and extremely rare, issue of the volume without the Index, described by the publisher on a tipped-on typed label on the title pages and dust jackets of both Parts as a 'ROUGH PRINTED COPY / For traveller's use only and not for sale'." Here is the only such set we have ever seen offered with the original dust jackets. Contents and pagination are identical to the first edition, first printings (including all maps, charts, etc.) with two exceptions: omission of the seven-page index at the end of Part II and lack of the errata at the Part II half-title. These two omissions confirm that issuance of these "traveller's" copies preceded the normal British first trade printings. The print itself is slightly lighter, but otherwise identical and the volumes themselves bulk slightly thicker. The blue cloth bindings differ only in being a slightly brighter shade of dark blue than the dark navy of the normal British first trade printings. The dust jackets are identical in content and size to those of the normal first printing. However, of special note, the jackets are printed on the same thick, light greenish paper as the first printing of the 1911-1914 volume, rather than the notoriously acidic and brittle yellowish grey paper of the normal British first trade printings, making these jackets unique variants. The dust jackets each bear a 3.25 inch wide by .75 inch tall typed label affixed to the front face of the dust jackets, as specified by Ronald Cohen, reading: "ROUGH PRINTED COPY / For traveller's use only and / not for sale". Identical labels are affixed to each title page. The Part II labels both have an additional notation in pencil "*without the Index". It is difficult to overstate the scarcity of these very special, jacketed volumes. Condition is very good plus in very good minus dust jackets. The blue cloth bindings are tight, clean, and square with sharp corners and bright spine gilt, and only minimal wear to extremities. The contents of both volumes show transfer browning to the endpapers corresponding to the dust jacket flaps. There are no inscriptions or previous ownership marks. Internal spotting is light and intermittent, primarily confined to the prelims. The page edges of both volumes are spotted with some minor soiling to the top and fore edges. The dust jackets are substantially complete, with some chipping at the spine ends, corners, and folds. The rear hinge of the Part I dust jacket is split; an ancient strip of deteriorated cellotape has been carefully removed, leaving a bit of residue. The Part II front face has a faint, roughly 3 inch circular moisture stain at the top center (that does not affect the binding beneath). Both jackets are now protected beneath removable, archival quality clear covers backed with acid-free paper. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A69.2(III-1&2), Woods/ICS A31(ab)3a&3b.

Internally, no inscriptions, [4], 41 pp, [3], 25 wood engravings, (hand coloured by Maynard and Bray), chapter openings in pale blue, initial letters in red and paragraph marks in red, drawn with a quill by HW Bray, a little browning to gutter of fep and rep only, pd's have risen slightly. House in its original card slipcase, title in white to red paper label. This binding represents the only use of vellum by the bindery and was not a material in which Fisher was familiar. The text, freely collated by Ernest Rhys, is based upon the Latin Life by Rhygyfarch (1057-1099) & upon the later lives. The picture of St. David on the title page was drawn from a brass, dated 1476, in Hereford Cathedral. Probably the most difficult Gregynog title to obtain.
