        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.

        The World Crisis, 1916-1918, Volumes I & II, immaculate jacketed first editions in the very rare publisher's slipcase

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1927. 1st Edition. Hardcover. As new/Fine. 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.

A Very Good + copy (some fading to spine and outer edges of front board, mild wear, paper clip rust stain to top of half-title mildly penetrating to face of each adjoining page), in a not quite Very Good dust jacket (edge wear, large chip to front panel, tape reinforcement to verso (inside edge) at spine ends and folds), SIGNED BY LIAM O'FLAHERTY on the front free endpaper; O'Flaherty's biography of Tim Healy (Timothy Michael Healy), the famed Irish nationalist politician, controversial Member of Parliament, and the first Governor-General of the Irish Free State (which at its creation comprised the entire island of Ireland). Liam O'Flaherty was one of the key Irish writers of the first half of the last century, and a major figure in the Irish literary renaissance. One of the scarcest, if not the scarcest, of all of O'Flaherty's books, quite uncommon with the book this nice, even more scarce in the dust jacket, quite scarce signed, and as scarce as hen's teeth when both in the dust jacket and signed. A Very Good copy, SIGNED BY LIAM O'FLAHERTY. QUITE SCARCE.

      München, Kurt Wolff, 1927 - 8°, 391 S., OLwd. m. Deckel u. Rückenschild., Rücken etwas beschienen, Deckel min. fleckig, ein sehr schönes Exemplar. Erstausgabe. (W/G2 10). Mit einem Nachwort v. Max Brod. - Über Kafkas großen Amerika-Roman, den der Prager Dichter selbst in seinen Tagebüchern «Der Verschollene» nannte, schrieb Kurt Tucholsky bewundernd: «Hier ist der ganz seltene Fall, dass einer das Leben nicht versteht und recht hat.» Hauptperson ist der junge Karl Roßmann, der, von seiner Familie verstoßen, in die Neue Welt aufbricht, um die Freiheit zu suchen, nach der er sich sehnt. Und Brod schreibt in seinem Nachwort: « Es ist klar, dass der Roman mit dem «Prozess» und « Schloss» deren Reihe er (chronologisch) eröffnete, innig zusammenhängt. Es ist eine «Trilogie der Einsamkeit», die Kafka hinterlassen hat. 800 gr. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        [UNTITLED BESTIARY]

      [Weimar?]. ca. 1927.. Twenty original signed woodcuts, plus a smaller woodcut on the upper wrapper. Folio (37 x 33.5 cm). Printed on folded Japanese paper, open sewn in paper over limp wrappers. Upper wrapper neatly detached, with chipping to wrapper covering and a small burn mark, internally fine. An impressive sequence of woodcuts of wild and domestic animals and birds (one with an additional color), each signed below the image in pencil by Klemm (1883- 1957). The front blank bears Klemm's 1927 gift inscription to his friend, fellow artist, woodcut master and illustrator, Emil Orlik, who he had met in Vienna. In 1913 Klemm joined the faculty at the Weimarer Kunsthochshule, and in the following decades illustrated a number of significant texts, along with producing individual prints and series. This series bears no explicit limitation, though a pencil shelf-number (?) appears in the corner of the first blank ('692/LXXV').

        Candide, or All for the best

      New York: Bennett Libraries, 1927. 8vo (23 cm; 9.25"). 2 vols. in 1. 182 pp., [4] ff., color plates. Sole edition illustrated by Clara Tice, the illustrations numbering ten, printed in color, and definitely of an erotic nature. This copy (no. 130) is one of 250 copies "on special deckle-edge Pannekoek paper." The title-page, printed in black and red, announces this is an "Exact reprint of the earliest English text" and tells us that it was "printed in Holland by Joh. Enschede en Zonen for the Bennett Libraries, Inc." In the early decades of the 20th century, Tice was a sensation because of her provocative art and as the embodiment of bohemian Greenwich Village — gaining, indeed, the sobriquet "The Queen of Greenwich Village." Binding: Publisher's black goat, round spine with raised bands lettered in gilt and with a gilt-stamped female nude figure in center area of spine; front cover with two gilt-stamped reclining female nude figures reminiscent of those on big-rig mud guards! Elegant gilt turn-ins, top edge gilt and other edges deckle. Housed in a brown paper–covered open-back case. Case rubbed but sound; binding as above with spine a little pulled, corners a little bumped, and front joint (outside) a little abraded. First leaves separated and tipped in; possibly, cancels? All illustrations eye-popping in several senses; all tissue guards present.

        The First Part and the Second Part of the History of the Valorous and Wittie Knight-Errant Don-Quixote of the Mancha

      Chelsea: Chelsea, The Ashendene Press, , 1927–28. Translated out of the Spanish by Thomas Shelton MDCXII. 2 large folio volumes (430 × 308 mm). Publisher's full green morocco, spine in compartments with gilt titles direct. Printed in red and black in Ptolemy type; text in double columns; border and initials designed by Louise Powell and cut on wood by W. M. Quick and Geo. H. Ford. Nicks to bands and corners, but a lovely set, internally fine and in excellent condition. First Ashendene edition, one of 225 copies on Batchelor paper, out of a total edition of 245 copies. "First appearance of Ptolemy type. Ashendene knight-in-armour paper…taken as a single work Don-Quixote is the largest of the Ashendene books. It has an interesting alternative to Hewitt's drawn or printed initials, the successful but unrepeatable device of neo-Kelmscott initials, borders and opening words cut on wood from designs by Louise Powell. The new Ashendene type was imitated and adapted from the Geographia of Ptolemaeus, printed by Leonard Holle at Ulm in 1482. In two columns, with red used chiefly for headings and shoulder notes, decorated but not illustrated, this link with the Kelmscott past was an entirely successful venture" (Franklin, The Ashendene Press).

        The World Crisis: 1916-1918, Volumes I & II

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1927 - Here is a jacketed U.S. first edition, first printing set of the two 1916-1918 volumes of Churchill's The World Crisis. This is Churchill's 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, containing what is regarded as some of Churchill's finest writing. The U.S. edition of The World Crisis is the true first, as U.S. 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 quite scarce - jacketed U.S. first editions even more so than their British counterparts. These two volumes - the third and fourth of the full six-volume set - include Churchill's time commanding a battalion at the front and his political rehabilitation and return to the Cabinet. Both books are very good plus in very good dust jackets, that by virtue of matching condition give every appearance of being an original pairing. The bindings are extremely clean, marked only by slight dulling to the bottom edges of the spines. The contents are clean and tight with no ownership marks. The untrimmed fore edges show the usual age-toning and the top edge shows some soiling and light spotting. Both dust jackets are unclipped, still bearing the "$10.00 Two Volumes" price on the front flaps. The front and rear faces of the Volume I jacket are clean and complete with just light age toning and minor wear at the corners. The Volume I jacket spine is toned with fractional chipping at the spine head and chipping to a maximum 3/8 inch depth at the tail. The Volume II dust jacket rear face is clean and complete with just a hint of age toning and minor wear at the corners. The front face of the dust jacket is slightly more toned (likely due to transfer browning from the slipcase in which it was originally issued), bears a few tiny dark spots, and has three 1/8 inch chips along the top edge (likely where the jacket long ago caught on the aforementioned slipcase). The Volume II jacket spine is toned with a 1/8 inch loss at the head of the spine, a 1/16 inch loss at the spine tail, and a 1/8 inch hole along the lower third of the rear hinge. Of note, the spine losses are small enough that the black rules at the head and tail remain intact. Both dust jackets are fitted with removable, archival quality clear covers.

        Evert Taube (1927).

      Blyertsteckning. Med signatur och påskrift i blyerts: "Variantskiss av Evert Taube 1927 / E Forseth". 28,5 x 22,5 cm. Enstaka veck och riss, en liten bläckfläck i vänster marginal. Monterad på ett större blad. Proveniens: Konstnärens familj till 2013. Variant av det laverade Taubeporträtt som avbildas i Einar Forseths minnesbok Mälardrottningens Gyllene sal. Mosaikbitar ur ett brokigt konstnärsliv (1973), s. 80, och snarast bättre än detta. Dess bildtext lyder: "Evert Taube, min ungdomskamrat på Göteborgs Handelstidnings ritbyrå, här tecknad 1927 som källaren Den Gyldene Fredens trubadur".. Om deras gemensamma historia berättar Forseth på s. 82-84. De två var nästan jämnåriga och träffades första gången på Göteborgs Handelstidnings ritbyrå 1908-1909, när Evert var 18, Forseth 16 år. "[Taube] var redan då en charmör och förledare. [...] Han fann snart ritbyråtillvaron alltför instängd och torftig. Redan då var han medveten om sina talanger som en benådad kavaljer och trubadur. En gång bad han att över en dag få låna min surt inbesparade tvåveckorslön på hela fjorton kronor, vilket han naturligtvis genast fick. Genom denna lättvindiga, spontana finansoperation möjliggjordes hans mönstring på den efterlängtade 'långseglare', som skulle föra honom ut på hans berömda färder jorden runt. I varje fall till de klassiska medelhavsländerna och sedan vidare ut på hans äventyrsfärder till Sydamerikas pampas, till gauchosadeln och Carmencitas bröst, totalt glömmande den lilla göteborgska ritbyrån och den handfallne kompisen, som fick suga på ramarna, när hans fattiga slantar flugit ut över jordklotet. Det skulle sedan dröja drygt tio år, innan vi återsågs i Stockholm. Det var när vår beundrade vän Anders Zorn förvärvat Den Gyldene Freden, som blev vårt mest kända stamlokus på den tiden. Vi och vår legendariske vän Jonas Lindh var de enda, som fick följa med Anders Zorn och hans arkitekt, Torsten Stubelius, ner i de gamla medeltida källarvalven, där sönderslagna tunnor, döda kattor och dynga låg i lager på varandra. [...] Det var där Evert Taube stiftade sin celebra orden 'Riddarna kring runda bordet' - salig i åminnelse - och genom sina lyckade ballader om 'bröder riddarna' gjorde dem så ofantligt populära. [...] Jag tror att Evert Taube och jag är de enda överlevande av dem som så festligt beskrivits i balladerna. [...] Denna Riddarbrödernas klang- och jubelperiod i Bellmans tecken varade en dekad, i varje fall så länge som vår generöse vän Gunnar Nylund stod för rusthållet på Freden under det glada tjugotalet. Under denna tid kom Evert Taube då och då upp till min söderbostad, sjöng och diktade vaggvisor för våra små grabbar, spelade på vår gamla Wienerflygel - och provade med välbehag mina fina slipsar. Så skildes våra vägar igen och han startade på allvar sitt seriösa författarskap, som ökade hans berömmelse år för år"

        Poems, 1914 - 1927

      London: William Heinemann, 1927 First edition, limited edition of 115 numbered copies signed by the author on the limitation page. Bright gilt lettering to the spine, top edge gilt; publisher&#39;s original cream dust jacket. A near fine copy, light spotting to the boards and endpapers, minor offsetting to the half-title page and rear endpaper, former owner&#39;s bookplate to the front pastedown, else bright and clean; unclipped dust jacket, with a slight hint of wear to the spine head and the front top corner, some toning to the spine, scuff to the bottom edge of the front panel. Overall, a clean and attractive copy. Poems, 1914-1917 is a collection of Graves&#39; poetry from the larger World War I period and is representative of the author&#39;s early writing. In the later 1920&#39;s, Graves&#39; writing style changed significantly as a result of his divorce with his first wife, new relationship with American poet Laura Riding, and the publication of his 1929 memoir, Goodbye to All That. Many of the poems in this collection concern the author&#39;s pre-war patriotism, mid-war horror, and post-war shellshock.. Signed by Author. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.
