        Au pays des Aïnou. Exploration anthropologique

      - portrait, VIII, 240, (2)pp., Paris, Masson & Cie, sd [1927], in-8, portrait, VIII, 240, (2)pp, 48 planches, 1 vignette photographique sur la première de couverture, , Portrait de l'auteur. 48 planches donnant des portraits photographiques d'Aïnous, dont un reproduit en vignette de couverture. Nombreuses figures de crânes dans le texte. PREMIÈRE ÉDITION de cette fameuse et intéressante monographie. Tirage unique à 50 exemplaires sur vélin pur fil du Marais, celui-ci enrichi d'un envoi signé de l'auteur à sa cousine Gabrielle Montandon. Cette étude anthropologique, l'une des plus importantes de l'auteur, porte sur les Aïnou, ethnie vivant au nord du Japon (îles Hokkaido) et à l'extrême Est de la Russie, que Montandon rencontra au cours d'une mission en Sibérie en 1919-1920 ; elle sera suivi, dix ans plus tard, d'une seconde publication, tout aussi conséquente, La civilisation aïnou et les cultures arctiques (Paris, Payot, 1937). Montandon fut l'auteur d'un grand nombre d'ouvrages d'anthropologie scientifique. Il est tristement passé à la postérité comme étant l'un des responsables de la propagation de "l'ethno-racisme" en France, avec des thèses antisémite, négrophobe et eugéniste d'une grande violence. Cet ami de Louis-Ferdinand Céline est reconnu pour avoir été l'une des cautions scientifiques du racisme avant la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Quelques feuillets déreliés. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Fiesta [The Sun Also Rises]

      Jonathan Cape, London 1927 - First edition, review copy married to a rare second printing dust jacket. Book faded at the spine and top third of rear board, offsetting to the front free endpaper, and dustiness at edges. Binding sound with contents clean and complete - very good. The jacket is moderately creased across its entirety with a small short tear at the top of the front panel. The spine is a shade faded, but withal it’s a bright, unclipped example in very good condition. ************ The first printing of this U.K. edition of Hemingway’s masterwork was published in June 1927, while the second appeared shortly thereafter either in August or September.(Grissom) With their mixed usage of the terms “printing” and “publication,” Jonathan Cape made life difficult for bibliographers. *********** Both first and second printing jackets are rare. A second printing jacket recently cleared $8K at auction, and the spine looked like it was rubbed with a block of razor blade-filled cheddar cheese. This one can be owned with peace of mind - an opportunity to possess a rare Hemingway piece, particularly as a rewarding alternative to its bank account depleting, jacketed American counterpart.

"Autograph letter signed ""Henrietta Szold"", one page, 5½"" x 9"", on stationary of the Hotel Alexandria, July 28, 1927, New York, NY, addressed to Elisha Friedman.Szold writes: ""Am I wrong in assuming that you expressed at least individual approval of the plan of discharging the deficit of the Zionist Organization of America as a first step towards making it an effective instrument for Palestinian work, when I spoke to you at the Physician's Dinner? At all events, I venture to ask whether you will help us do what we have undertaken by becoming a life member of the Organization? The plan is to secure two thousand such life members at $100 each. That will cover the deposit of $156,000 and give us a small reserve out of the interest on which we can supplement our normal revenues. Will you help?..."" A steadfast and loyal Zionist, Friedman was a member of the American Economic Committee for Palestine, on the Board of the American Friends of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, and on the Finance Committee of the Palestine Endowment Funds and the Hadassah Medical Organization.

      London: John Lane the Bodley Head, 1927. With 16 illustrations by Aubrey Beardsley, including the famous hermaphrodite plate on the title. Includes a list of the characters in the play, the cast of the first English performance of the play on May 10th and 13th, 1905, the facsimile of the handbill for Richard Strauss' operatic version, and the introductory note by Robert Ross. Publisher's cloth with elaborate gilt design on front cover, spine gilt; an excellent, very wide-margined copy. Originally printed in 1907, Salomé was certainly one of Beardsley's best-known illustrated works. Beardsley captures the underlying ideas addressing sexuality and gender roles throughout the story. He brings these things to life in his illustrations, starting as early as the title page, which has a beautifully detailed yet disturbing drawing of a demonic hermaphrodite. And the book ends ending with one of the most gorgeous scenes, wherein an androgynous Salome holds the prophet's decapitated head. The original 1891 version of the play was in French. The play tells in one act the Biblical story of Salome, stepdaughter of Herod Antipas, who, to her stepfather's dismay but to the delight of her mother Herodias, requests the head of John the Baptist on a silver platter as a reward for dancing the dance of the seven veils. Sarah Bernhardt was to star in the London debut of the play, but the 1892 rehearsals were halted by the censor, banning the production on the basis that it was illegal to depict Biblical characters on the stage. The play was eventually premiered in February, 1896, while Wilde was in prison. Beardsley (1872-1898) was a fashionable young London illustrator, whose first commissions had been from the publisher J M Dent for a version of the medieval poet Malory's Morte d'Arthur. Beardsley was asked to provide drawings for the first printing of Salome in 1893, but those illustrations were rejected. One of them did appear in an art publication, which was seen by Wilde (1854-1900), an Irish writer and poet and one of London's most popular playwrights, who wrote to Beardsley asking him to provide a suite of illustrations for an upcoming edition. Wilde sent Beardsley a copy of the original French edition, inscribing it: "For Aubrey: for the only artist who, besides myself, knows what the Dance of the Seven Veils is, and can see that invisible dance.".

        Now We Are Six.

      London: Methuen & Co. Ltd,, 1927. Octavo. Original red cloth, title to spine gilt, vignette to covers gilt, pink illustrated endpapers, top edge gilt. Illustrated throughout by E. H. Shepard. Spine lightly faded, minor rubbing to extremities, faint browning to prelims and endmatter; an excellent copy. First edition, first impression. Following the success of When We Were Very Young Milne began planning a second book of poetry for children. In a January 1926 letter to his brother Ken he included it as number one in a list of "things which ought to be done": "A book of verses (about 15 done to date) to appear in 1927 or 1928" (Thwaite p. 293). By the time that Winnie-the-Pooh was published in late 1926 half the poems for this third book were already complete. Published on 13 October 1927 in an edition of 50,000 regular trade copies, it took only two months for Now We Are Six to eclipse the sales records of the previous two books. Full of Milne's charming verse, this collection is also notable for including many illustrations of Pooh, Piglet, and the other nursery toys, even when uncalled for by the poems.

      William Heinemann, London 1927 - First edition of this powerful collection of aphorisms, poems, and parables from the author of The Prophet. Octavo, original cloth. Warmly inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Marie Luise, With a greeting across the garden, Kahlil.'' Also laid in is a autograph signed two paged letter on his letterhead, completely in Gibran's hand. It reads, "Good morning to you, dear Marie Lousie, and many blessings upon you. I have before me now a kindly number of your letters, and I feel quite rich. You see, I went to the country for a while, and while I was there no letters were forwarded to me. Everybody thinks that I must try and get out of the world as though I have never been in it. And they say that I am not well enough to do anything but lie on my back and be still. They are all stupid! I like the little photographs in your last letter very much. They make you seem quite dashing! The hair is infinitely better and, of course, more becoming. No doubt that at the end of October 'your tresses, like molten gold, falling from heaven to the earth,' will [be] a pleasant sight to the gods of this world--and the gods of other worlds. I am glad you still like the drawing. Who knows, I may make a better one next winter! And if I should do so, you would want it- and I will not give it to you- and that's that!!! Always your faithful Kahlil Boston Aug. 28 1927." In near fine condition. Sand and Foam' is a collection of profound and inspirational thoughts from the master of timeless wisdom, Kahlil Gibran, author of 'The Prophet'. Abstract and specific, amused and awed, direct and circuitous, this work draws together strands of advice and motivation to enrich the mind, heart, soul and life of the reader.
