        BLENDED WORLDS ..

      Miami, Arizona: Southern Arizona Publishing Co., 1927.. Octavo, pp. [1-6] [1-3] 4-243 [244-250] [note: first two and last three leaves are blanks], original blue cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold. First edition. Limited to 100 copies numbered and signed by Van Dyke, plus some out-of-series copies, this being one of the latter. Eccentric occult science fiction novel, sequel to THE FLASH, also privately printed by the author in an edition of 100 copies in Miami, Arizona, in 1927. THE FLASH and its sequel first appeared as serials in the Miami, Arizona, DAILY SILVER BELT. This is definitely not your usual Victorian, talking-heads-in-flowing-white-robes kind of occult romance; but rather a wild and wooly tale in the American tradition of such works as RONDAH, REVI-LONA, and DR. ZELL AND THE PRINCESS CHARLOTTE. It's a red-blooded, action-packed adventure, blending backdrops of the Wild West and the Roaring Twenties, complete with bootleggers, prize fighters, romantic passion, grizzled prospectors, super science and a bizarre 25-page journey through an underworld cavern in which we learn about Glowhumes, unsaturated Electrohumes, the Ancient Order of Wasted Propaganda, radicals and coefficients, the Interrogator and the Disseminator, and the progressive concentration of "sparkles" as one ascends the food chain. Taken together, they form the wacky, sui generis occultism that animates this story philosophically. Here is a quest whose hunted treasure turns out to be multilayered both figuratively and literally. It follows the adventures of Charlie, Mary and Frank (brother, sister, friend) in search of unspecified treasure at the foot of Sleeping Beauty, seen in a vision in Chicago, drawing them across the country in a covered wagon until they arrive in Arizona at a mountainous formation that looks like a giant Sleeping Beauty. Charlie is given to trances and astral travel, and early on in the story fails to return from one. It is his corpse, strapped to a rubber air mattress gliding sideways across a raging river that initiates the trip to the underworld. Mary is beautiful, quick, ethereal and extremely devoted to Charlie. Frank is brawny, slow, down-to-earth and extremely devoted to Mary. The story in large part is about how Mary becomes more earthy (and humble) and Frank more spiritual (and confident) until they pass through all the inner and outer obstacles keeping them apart as a romantic couple. Along the way, Frank becomes a champion prize fighter under the management of Dorothy, a feisty and fetching schoolteacher who gets off a bus to help Frank after the storm that separates him from Mary, but who then gets a taste of the fast life on Frank's winnings and finds another lover. Mary becomes a celebrated mind-reader, fortuneteller and faith-healer under the cynical management of her Uncle Joseph, a cagey prospector fond of doing vocal impressions. Van Dyke lacks the polish of the professional writer and is sometimes awkward, abrupt or confusing; but he tells a complex yet fast-moving story and tells it with suspense, psychological credibility, thematic depth, and comedy (sometimes unintentional). Most impressive is how he combines customarily opposite qualities, writing convincingly of the city and the desert, the boxing ring and a magical cavern, crooks and angels, thus making his book itself an intriguing example of blended worlds. A significant book that should be better known. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978), Reginald (1979; 1992) or Day (1963). Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy Volume II, p. 110. Cloth rubbed at edges, several small stains, two gatherings slightly proud, a very good copy. Quite uncommon. (#149503)

        HATSUMEI THE INVENTION 40 issues.

      1927 - [MAGAZINE] TEIKOKU HATSUMEI KYO^KAI. HATSUMEI THE INVENTION 41 issues. To^kyo^, Maru-no-uchi. Magazines, bound Western style in decorated wrappers. 1927 - 1943. About 26 x 19 cm in size. This important magazine began in 1905. The Imperial Science and Invention Society, that published the magazine, built a permanent research facility for inventors in the Meguro area in Tokyo about the time of the earthquake. The magazine continued after the war and is still in publication today. This group of issues is as follows: Vol. 24 [1927], #s 3,4,5,7; Vol. 27 [1930] #s 9 & 11; Vol. 29 [1932] #s 5 & 7; Vol. 34 [1937] #s 6-12; Vol.35 [1938] #s 9 & 10; Vol.36 [1939] #9; Vol.37 [1940] #s 2,4,6-9, 12; Vol.38 [1941] #s 2- 4,10,12; Vol.39 [1942] #s 2,4-6,8,9,12; Vol.40 [1943] #s 1,2,4,5. The earlier issues are dedicated to civilian inventions, though as war looms in the late 30s and arrives in the 40s, the inventions grow warlike, as well. However, in 1943, there is a strange cover photo of a torn Japanese flag seemingly hanging at half staff - odd message, indeed, in the middle of a total war. Overall good or better condition with occasional soiling and edgewear. Very unusual in the marketplace. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Mosquitoes

      New York: Boni and Liveright, 1927 First edition, first printing. One of 3,047 copies. Publisher's navy cloth, lettered in pale yellow, pictorial blue endpapers with floral vine pattern in white. Near fine, with some minor rubbing to the extremities, otherwise fresh binding, bookseller's plate to the rear pastedown, otherwise fresh interior. A handsome copy. Peterson A4.1a. The author's second novel, Mosquitoes is a satirical text about the New Orleans literary and artistic communities in the early 20th century. Specifically, it tells the story of a group of artists and poets, representing a wide range of skills and personalities, who have embarked on a yachting excursion hosted by Mrs. Patricia Maurier, a widowed and aging patron of the arts. Mosquitoes is divided into six chapters, with one chapter dedicated to each of the four days of the yachting trip as well as a prologue and epilogue. Throughout the novel, Faulkner describes the characters' interactions with one another with underlying themes of sexuality, all the while exploring his overarching theme of the artist's role in society. A semi-autobiographical novel, Mosquitoes was decidedly influenced by Faulkner's life in New Orleans as an aspiring writer, and, its focus on the role of artist in society clearly reflects Faulkner's determination to define himself as a young author.. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        Ulysses [Pirate Edition of Ulysses - bowdlerized and published in Two Worlds Monthly by its editor Samuel Roth] - Complete set of all 11 publsihed issues.

      New York, Two Worlds Publishing Company, 1926 - 1927. - Octavo. Pagination: Issues I - IV: 498 pages, Issue V - VIII: 476 pages, Issue IX - XI: 210 pages. Original Softcover wrappers. Very good + / Near Fine - condition with only minor signs of external wear. Two chips to spines only. Wonderful example of this unusual set. Samuel Roth must be seen as one of the most persistant but highly interesting violator's of publishing rights and distributor of obscene materials during the 1920's to 1950's, a difficult time for these kind of endeavours. His most famous clash with the law happened in 1927, when Sylvia Beach was pressed by James Joyce to stop Roth printing excerpts from Ulysses. Famously Roth not only caved but also published "An Offer to James Joyce" in the last installment of his short-lived periodical, anticipating the injunction that was to end his enterprise in 1927. The injunction was a result of Sylvia Beach's success in mobilizing an international protest, signed by 167 international artists and writers, which was porinted in another famous periodical (Transition). In "An Offer to James Joyce" Samuel Roth wrote: "Whether it is really true, or whether is its merely a survival of his old Dublin habits (schnorrerei in both worlds being mostly the same), Mr.Joyce tells everyone who comes to see him in Paris that he is in need of money. If Mr.Joyce is really in need of money, it is here in New York waiting for him, provided he is willing to make one public appearance to answer my charges against him for his conduct in the matter of my publication of his Ulysses in 'Two worlds Monthly'. Two thousand five hundred dollars has been posted with my attorney, Mr.Nathan M. Padgug, of Padgug, Tarlowe & Flatow, 17 John Street, to pay for Mr. Joyce's way to and from New York, to accommodate him in a first-class New York Hotel and to provide him with a thousand dollars in cash after his public appearance. If Mr.Joyce was not really responsible, as has been suggested possible, for the actions of Sylvia Beach and his other friends, particularly in the publication of the spurious much-signed protest, he owes me and the world this explanation. And if after he has heard what i have to say he still believes that the attitude of his friends did justice to him and to me, it is important that he should make public confession of it, too. Here is an opportunity for Mr.Joyce to get a trip to New York, dine with the Van Dorens, see the Woolworth Building, and get a thousand dollars in cash besides. I have cabled this offer to him, giving him all summer, if he wants it, to consider the matter. Meanwhile, I would like to point out that Mr. Joyce is a celebrated example of what an indiscriminate contemporary adulation can do to even a writer of such promise as Mr. Joyce. I submit to the sober judgment of mankind that, since the writing of Ulysses, Mr.Joyce has ceased functioning as an artist. To the best evidence possible, his most recent writings, he has succumbed into a state of semi-conscious demoniacism in which he is both conscious of his own mental waywardness and of the ludicrous gullibility of his friends who pretend to discern in the gibberish I reproduce in 'Two Worlds Quarterly'[sic] the birth of a new art. Frankly, I have even given up readning proof of the matter. But one of his crony-critics, writing in the current number of 'Transition', suggests that Mr.Joyce has demonstrated conclusivelyin this new unnamed work, in which thirteen modern and ancient languages are made use of, the inadequacy of one language for the expression of modern thought. If we should ever be crazy enough to follow this line of thinking, we will soon see sculptors mixing brass with theirmarble, painters pasting wooden bridges on their reproductions of the Thames, and novelists returning to the eighteenth century habit of illustrating their bedroom scenes with wall paper [all of these happened since, the Editor]. There is a man writing fearfully after eating. One would say that he has einter eaten very bad food of th

Binding a bit warped, top edge stain faded, fore-edge of text block. foxed, a bright, nearly fine copy in nearly fine 3/6 printed dust. jacket with small closed tear at upper spine end. (#152559). First edition. The author's third and last collection of weird fiction, this one dedicated to Maurice Baring. It includes "Tanhuser and the Gods," one of the finest humorous fantasies, "Winthrop's Adventure," "The Virgin of the Seven Daggers," and two others, as well as a long, interesting introduction on the sources for the stories. Lee's weird fiction earned the praise of Montague Summers, who equated her talent to that of M. R. James. "Lee's stories are really in a category by themselves. Intelligent, amusingly ironic, imaginative, original, they deserve more than the passing attention that they have attracted." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, pp. 256-57. "Marsyas in Flanders" is a "fine antiquarian tale but too early to have been directly influenced by M. R. James (it was written in 1900)." - Pardoe, The James Gang, p. 11.

        Ulysses

      Paris, Shakespeare and Company, 1927 9th Printing. Hardback, modern rebinding in half dark blue morocco leather to spine and marbled paper boards. Black spine label lettered in gilt, with raised and gilt banding and gilt decorations to spine, gilt ruled edges to boards. Original blue paper wrappers bound inside. In very good condition. Modern rebinding with new endpapers. Some darkening and dark spots to original wrappers. Small label to bottom of title page “Goethebuchandlung, Berlin”. Some minor rubbing and darkening to page edges, a couple of minor spots, else pages very clean and tight throughout. ---- At the outset of the First World War, Joyce moved with his family to Zürich, where Lenin and the Dadaist Tristan Tzara had found their refuge. In Zürich Joyce started to develop the early chapters of Ulysses, which was first published in France because of censorship troubles in the Great Britain and the United States, where the book became legally available 1933. The theme of jealousy was based partly on a story a former friend of Joyce told: he claimed that he had been sexually intimate with the author's wife, Nora, even while Joyce was courting her. The book, which takes place on one day in Dublin (June 16, 1904) and reflected the classic work of Homer (fl. 9th or 8th century BC?), gained immediate success. The main characters are Leopold Bloom, a Jewish advertising canvasser, his wife Molly, and Stephen Dedalus, the hero from Joyce's earlier novel Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. They are intended to be modern counterparts of Telemachus, Ulysses, and Penelope. The story, using stream-of-consciousness technique, parallel the major events in Odysseus' journey home. The famous Sirens are barmaids. However, Bloom's adventures are less heroic and his homecoming less spectacular. The paths of Stephen and Bloom cross and recross through the day. Bloom makes his trip to the underworld by attending a funeral at Glasnevin Cemetary. "We are praying now for the repose of his soul. Hoping you're well and not in hell. Nice change of air. Out of the fryingpan of life into the fire of purgatory." 735 pp.
