        Der Steppenwolf (+) Tractat von Steppenwolf.

      Berlin, G. Fischer, (1927). Original blue full cloth, with gilt decoration to spine and boards. Previous owner's name to front free end-paper written in pencil. Including the 33 page long (separately paginated) "Tractat von Steppenwolf", in the original glitted yellow wrappers, between p. 64 and p. 65. A very fine and clean copy.. First edition of Hesse's famous and exceedinly popular novel which "by common consent, represents the canonical contribution of the German novel to High Modernism." (Cornils, A Companion to the Works of Hermann Hesse, p. 172). "No author has ever equaled the sensation created by German writer Hermann Hesse among young people over thirty years after the publication of his novel." (Johnson, The social impact of the novel, P. 172). In 1933 Hesse was accused by the Nazi Press for poisoning the minds of youth with his Freudian psykoanalysis and a few years later all his books were banned throughout Germany and many of them destroyd. Combining autobiographical and psychoanalytic elements, the novel was named after the lonesome wolf of the steppes. The story in large part reflects a profound crisis in Hesse's spiritual world in the 1920s while memorably portraying the protagonist's split between his humanity, and his wolf-like aggression and homelessness. The real breakthrough and period it later came to represent was the 1960ies in the USA; Fifteen million copies of Steppenwolf were sold between 1961 and 1971and hence became "one of the most bizarre literary trends" (Johnson, The social impact of the novel, P. 173). The fascination with Hesse became known as a cult especially among the hippies and was a reaction among the young in the US to societal pressures for middle-class conformity.The name Steppenwolf has become notable in popular culture for various organizations and establishments. In 1967, the band Steppenwolf, headed by German-born singer John Kay, took their name from the novel

        La trahison des clercs.

      Paris, 1927. 8vo. Uncut and unopened in the original green printed wrappers with black and green lettering. Very minor bumping to extremities and a bit of fading to spine, otherwise a near mint copy. 306, (2) pp.. First edition of this "major event in political thought between the two wars" (PMM), "The Treason of the Intelligentsia". Number XXIII out of 50 (+12 "hors commerce") copies on "Madagascar" (prémier papier - first paper) out of a total of 3.862 copies (62 copies were printed on "Madagascar", 170 on "vélin pur fil" and 3.650 on "alfa satiné")."The "Clerc" is what Benda conceived the intellectual to be, someone disengaged from the mere contingencies of the existence and fighting for ideals that went beyond the demands of a given moment in space and time. In violent and brilliant invective, he attacked the intellectuals of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries for having fallen short of this ideal by becoming the devoted advocates not of ideals, but of groups or existences, material and transient, such as a nation or a social class. The title of Benda's manifesto became a kind of catch phrase which, by a curious irony of fate, inverted its original sense, and came to be used as a term of reproach for the intellectuals who shut themselves off from the march of events in an ivory tower. "La Trahison des Clercs" achieved a world-wide popularity and was translated and reprinted over and over again... After the war, some of his magic seemed to have departed... but "La Trahison des Clercs" continues to be read; and its invigorating attack on over-involvement deserves not to be forgotten." (Printing and the Mind of Man, p. 252)."The publication of the latter in 1927 was undoubtedly one of the major events of political thought between the two wars." (Printing and the Mind of Man, p. 252).PMM 419

The information "A Play with a Message" has been added over an original line (that seems like it might have been misspelled).

The play, in which androids who are at first content to work for their human creators decide to rebel, made its U.S. premiere in 1922 and supposedly Spencer Tracy made his stage debut as one of the robots in an early American production. .

The picture of St. David on the title page was drawn from brass, dated 1476, in Hereford Cathedral. Probably the most difficult Gregynog title to obtain.

        Autograph Letter Signed

      1927. October 1, 1927. Written to horror writer and artist Clark Ashton Smith ("C.A.S."), one of the circle of friends and fellow writers known to posterity as the Lovecraft Circle, and one of the writers whose work extended the Cthulhu Mythos that Lovecraft had invented and which then became part of the fictional milieu of a whole group of writers for Weird Tales and the other pulps in the 1930s and after. Four pages, closely written on two sides of two 6" x 9" sheets; approximately 1300 words. Lovecraft begins by admiring the paintings by Smith that Donald Wandrei had sent him ("Truly, I have never before seen such profoundly soul-moving glimpses of alien worlds with haunted skies and jungles of prismatic madness. It is such a series of forbidden revelations as one might spy through some magic window of the sort described in Dunsany's 'Book of Wonder'..."). He discusses his travels, particularly to areas in New England that are predominantly unchanged for the past 150 years, and sympathizes with Smith's struggles to write and paint, bolstering his friend by calling him more successful than himself in his "ability to produce creative work... I haven't very much energy or perseverance -- the uselessness of everything, including even aesthetic effort, overshadows my consciousness & cooperates with my native indolence in defeating all progressive or constructive developments." He mentions the first issue of The Recluse magazine, which published his essay "Supernatural Horror in Literature" and recommends to Smith that he read E.R. Eddison's now-classic The Worm Ourobouros, which had just been published in the past year, "which combines some gloriously imaginative phantasy with an exquisitely lyrical prose style." He recommends the new Franz Werfel, recounts his disappointment in the new Robert Chambers book, and about his own writing he says "I haven't written any stories since 'The Colour Out of Space', but hope to get around to a hell-raiser or two in the later autumn." A highly personal, informative letter to one of his closest writer friends: Smith and Lovecraft first "met" in 1922 when Lovecraft wrote him a fan letter, and they began a long and intimate correspondence until Lovecraft's death in 1937. They are considered, in retrospect, the two most outstanding figures of the classic era of American horror fiction, with Lovecraft at the pinnacle and Smith a somewhat distant second. Signed "HPL". Folded for mailing; near fine, with envelope. The sheets are inserted in sleeves, which are bound into a custom folder, which is fine. .

        My Life As An Explorer

      Garden City, NY: Doubleday, Page & Co., 1927. In original blue cloth binding with minimal library identifiers, and from the collection of John Pearson, former member and one-time president of the Rowfant Club of Cleveland; Signed by the celebrated explorer and author for the Museum of The Peaceful Arts, Manhattan, which in 1927 was located in the old Scientific American Building. The Museum of the Peaceful Arts later became the Museum of Science and Industry. This is Amundsen's last book, and signed copies are extremely hard to find. Born in Borge, Ostfold, Norway, Roald Amundsen is said by many to be the greatest Polar explorer of the 20th century. In 1911, Roald Amundsen and his men were the first humans to reach the South Pole. A 1925 flight over the North Pole nearly met with disaster, but Amundsen prevailed. He and his men returned safely in their Dornier Do J Flying Boat N-25, after being on the ice for over three weeks. In 1926, Amundsen made a historic flight over the Arctic aboard the Norweigan airship Norge, becoming the first undisputed explorer to reach the North Pole. The previous claims of Cook, Peary and Byrd as being the first are all in dispute. On June 18, 1928, Amundsen, flying with a rescue party searching for the Italian airship, Italia, crashed somewhere over the Barents Sea. Amundsen and his aircraft have never been found. As recently as 2009, the Royal Norweigan Navy unsuccessfully searched for the wreckage using an unmanned submarine, Hugin 1000. This former Museum of Peaceful Arts library copy is thusly marked in a few places, including the call numbers on the spine, and lacks its dust jacket; The boards are lightly shelf worn, spine extremities and corners worn and/or bumped.. Inscribed & Signed by Author. First American Edition. Blue Cloth w/Gilt Titling. Very Good. 8vo - Over 7 3/4" -9 3/4 " Tall. Ex-Library, Hard Cover.
