        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.

I send it FROM ISRAEL EMS Amerika, also known as The Man Who Disappeared[1] and as The Missing Person[2] (German: Der Verschollene), is the incomplete first novel of author Franz Kafka (1883-1924), written between 1911 and 1914[3] and published posthumously in 1927. The novel originally began as a short story titled The Stoker. The novel incorporates many details of the experiences of his relatives who had emigrated to the United States. The story describes the bizarre wanderings of sixteen-year-old European immigrant Karl Roßmann, who was forced to go to New York City to escape the scandal of his seduction by a housemaid. As the ship arrives in the United States, he becomes friends with a stoker who is about to be dismissed from his job. Karl identifies with the stoker and decides to help him; together they go to see the captain of the ship. In a surreal turn of events, Karl's uncle, Senator Jacob, is in a meeting with the captain. Karl does not know that Senator Jacob is his uncle, but Mr. Jacob recognizes him and takes him away from the stoker. Karl stays with his uncle for some time but is later abandoned by him after making a visit to his uncle's friend without his uncle's full approval. Wandering aimlessly, he becomes friends with two drifters named Robinson and Delamarche. They promise to find him a job, but they sell his suit without permission, eat his food in front of him without offering him any, and ransack his belongings. Finally, Karl departs from them on bad terms after he's offered a job by a manageress at Hotel Occidental. He works there as a lift-boy. One day Robinson shows up drunk at his work asking him for money. Afraid of losing his job being seen talking with a friend, which is forbidden for lift-boys, Karl agrees to lend him money, then commits the far worse offence of bunking a drunk-sick Robinson in the lift-boy dorm. Being dismissed for leaving his post, Karl agrees not only to pay for Robinson's taxi, but also joins him. They travel to Delamarche's place. Delamarche is now staying with a wealthy and obese lady named Brunelda. She wants to take in Karl as her servant. Karl refuses, but Delamarche physically forces him to stay and he is imprisoned in her apartment. He tries to break out, but is beaten by Delamarche and Robinson. On the balcony, he chats with a student who tells him he should stay, because it is hard to find a job elsewhere. He decides to stay. One day he sees an advertisement for the Nature Theatre of Oklahoma, which is looking for employees. The theatre promises to find employment for everyone. Karl applies for a job and gets engaged as a "technical worker." He is then sent to Oklahoma by train and is welcomed by the vastness of the valleys and adopts the name "Ne In conversations Kafka used to refer to this book as his "American novel," later he called it simply The Stoker, after the title of the first chapter, which appeared separately in 1913.[4] Kafka's working title was The Man Who Disappeared (Der Verschollene).[5] The title Amerika was chosen by Kafka's literary executor, Max Brod, who assembled the uncompleted manuscript and published it after his death.[5] Brod donated the manuscript to the University of Oxford. Kafka broke off his work on this novel with unexpected suddenness, and it remained unfinished. From what he told his friend and biographer Max Brod, the incomplete chapter "The Nature Theatre of Oklahoma" (a chapter the beginning of which particularly delighted Kafka, so that he used to read it aloud with great effect) was intended to be the concluding chapter of the work and was supposed to end on a note of reconciliation. In enigmatic language, Kafka used to hint smilingly that within this "almost limitless" theatre his young hero was going to find again a profession, a stand-by, his freedom, even his old home and his parents, as if by some celestial witchery.[7] The parts of the narrative immediately preceding this chapter are also incomplete. Two large fragments, describing Karl's service with Brunelda, are extant, but do not fill up the gaps. Only the first six chapters were divided and given titles by Kafka. The novel is more explicitly humorous but slightly more realistic (except in the last chapter) than most of Kafka's works, but it shares the same motifs of an oppressive and intangible system putting the protagonist repeatedly in bizarre situations. Specifically, within Amerika, a scorned individual often must plead his innocence in front of remote and mysterious figures of authority. However, it is often Karl who voluntarily submits to such treatment (helping a drunk Robinson at the hotel rather than having him thrown out, paying for Robinson's taxi, travelling to Delamarche's home, resigning himself to stay in imprisonment). In the story, the Statue of Liberty is holding a sword, and some scholars have interpreted this as a "might makes right" philosophy Kafka may have believed the United States holds Kafka was fond of reading travel books and memoirs. The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin was one of his favorite books, from which he liked reading passages aloud. Although he always had a longing for free space and distant lands, it is said that he never travelled farther than France and Upper Italy.[9] Despite this, a rare photo shows Kafka with an unknown man at Marielyst beach, in Denmark.[10] Kafka, at the time, was also reading, or rereading, several novels by Charles Dickens and made the following remarks in his diary: "My intention was, as I now see, to write a Dickens novel, enriched by the sharper lights which I took from our modern times, and by the pallid ones I would have found in my own interior In 1966, James Ferman directed Amerika for the BBC series Theatre 625.[12] Zbyněk Brynych directed the 1969 film Amerika oder der Verschollene for the German TV station ZDF.[13] The novel was adapted for the screen as the film Klassenverhältnisse (Class Relations) by Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet in 1984. Federico Fellini's Intervista revolves around the fictional filming of this novel's adaptation. The novel was made into a movie called Amerika in 1994 by Czech director Vladimír Michálek.[14] In 2004, a version adapted for the stage by Ip Wischin and directed by Tino Geirun, toured the USA.[15] German artist Martin Kippenberger attempted to conclude the story in his installation The Happy Ending of Franz Kafka's "Amerika". In 2012, the Tête à Tête opera company performed Samuel Bordoli's adaptation, the chamber opera Amerika.[16] Canadian cartoonist Réal Godbout released a graphic novel adaptation in French, as L'Amérique, ou Le Disparu, published by Les Éditions La Pastèque in 2013. In 2014 it appeared in English, as Amerika (translated by Helge Dascher), published by Conundrum Press (Canada). [17] [18] In 2016, American rock band Young the Giant released their single Amerika as part of an inspiration from Kafka's Amerika.

        FOUR AUTOGRAPH LETTERS SIGNED BY THE FAMOUS IRISH BARITONE SINGER HARRY PLUNKET GREENE.

      London, U.K.: March 17, 1924-Oct. 27, 1927. - - sc Small octavo [approximately 7 inches high by 4-3/8 inches wide]. The 4 letters dated "March 17, 1924", "July 27, 1924", "Jan. 17, 1926" and "Oct. 27, 1927" are penned in black ink on his personalized letterhead with his Kensington address printed in the top right corner. Three of the letters fill 1-1/2 to 1-2/3 sides of the letterhead. The 7/27/24 letter fills 2 sheets of letterhead [4 sides]. All four are signed "Yours ever, H. P. Greene". The letters are lightly bumped & soiled with small stains to the 1st side of the 1st letter & a few light ink stains to the 3rd letter. The letters have been folded once for mailing with a tiny tear to the right side of the fold & to the top edge of the 1st letter. Very good. Irish baritone Harry Plunket Greene made a notable contribution to British musical life not only through his concerts and recitals but also by writing and lecturing on his art, and in the field of competitions and examinations. He studied for two years at the Stuttgart Conservatory under Hromada, made his debut in "The Messiah" in 1888, and his operatic debut at Covent Garden in 1890. Thereafter he chose to make his career in recital. During the 1890s he became one of the foremost British interpreters of the German lieder, giving the first complete public performance of Schumann's "Dichterliebe" to be heard in London in 1895. He was much admired for his style, musicianship and intelligence. He created the title part in Hubert Parry's "Job" and was the original exponent or dedicatee of many of Parry's lyrical works. Charles Villiers Stanford wrote "Songs of the Sea" for him. He was a friend of Elgar and was the original baritone in the first performance of Elgar's "Dream of Gerontius" under Hans Richter in 1900.This is a wonderful selection of the singer's correspondence, with many musical references. The letters, written in a somewhat difficult handwriting, are friendly, informal and at times teasingly affectionate. They are addressed to "Dear Griffin", and from the content it is clear that Griffin was a singer and Plunket Greene was his teacher or mentor: "I have just heard from Bowman [Paget Bowman of British National Opera Company] that a letter will arrive for you next Wednesday asking you to go down and play 'Pagliacci'.Let's run through it again before you go" [3/17/24]; "As soon as you have mastered time and can have a picture in your mind of the shape of phrases [you] will be able to go where you like and carry all before you." [7/27/24]; "Don't forget that it is the word and not the note which pulls you out of your difficulties & that in the word it is the consonant & not the vowel which links up with the engine." [7/27/24].There are a number of references to other musicians. Plunket Greene writes of the British National Opera Company: "The B.N.O. wound up opening here. He [Bowman?] evicted Percy Pitt and got back Fred Austin & the change is little short of miraculous. The whole company shot up in style like a flower." [7/27/24]. Conductor Percy Pitt left the BNOC in 1924 and became Principal Conductor at Covent Garden. There is a somewhat illegible reference here to Vaughan Williams' "Hugh the Drover" which was in the BNOC's repertoire and was first performed at His Majesty's Theatre on 7/14/24. In the same letter Plunket Greene writes of the death of cellist Victor Herbert, whom he would presumably have known from his time studying in Stuttgart: "Poor old Victor Herbert; I remember him so well. It is queer to look back on the time when he was principal cello in the Stuttgart orchestra in the '80s.". On October 27, 1927, he writes of the all-girl harmony singing trio formed in 1924 by Pearl [Hamilton] Santos, Violet Hamilton and Jessie Fordyce: "The Hamilton Sisters & Fordyce are just A1 as they are. I wouldn't interfere with them for anything. It's just perfect in its way. I do trust they leave things alone, not try to change."Interestingly, in the 7/27/24 letter Plunket Greene makes a passing reference [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

Although Pepys had no maritime experience, he rose by patronage, hard work and his talent for administration, to be the Chief Secretary to the Admiralty under both King Charles II and subsequently King James II.His influence and reforms at the Admiralty were important in the early professionalisation of the Royal Navy.The detailed private diary Pepys kept from 1660 until 1669 was first published in the 19th century, and is one of the most important primary sources for the English Restoration period. It provides a combination of personal revelation and eyewitness accounts of great events, such as the Great Plague of London, the Second Dutch War and the Great Fire of London.

        MAYAKOVSKY AS LITERARY CRITIC] Kak delat' stikhi? [i. e. How are Verses Made?]

      Ogoniok, Moscow 1927 - 54, [2] pp. 15x11,5 cm. In original illustrated wrappers. Very good, wrappers slightly rubbed several stains and owner's pencil marks in text. Scarce. One of 14500 copies. First edition of the most elaborate piece of Mayakovsky's literary criticism (he's done only few other critical works and they are short essays). It includes a description of the way in which he wrote his poem «To Sergey Esenin», and can be considered Mayakovsky's credo. Mayakovsky's 'eternal' struggle for sincerity in art and life is expressed most clearly in his longest and most substantial critical text How are Verses Made? The direct reason to write that was to react once more at the poet Sergei Esenin's tragic death. Mayakovsky's first reaction was poem «To Sergey Esenin». As Mayakovsky considered it his task to challenge the general feelings of pessimism evoked by Esenin's death, his poem on Esenin lacks the elegiac tone that is characteristic for commemorative poems. It strikes the reader even by the absence of sympathy with a fellow poet. One of the reasons to write How are Verses Made? was to explain this seemingly cold attitude and lack of sympathy. Eventually his text went further than that and became a general statement about his own making of verse and about the way it should be done in general. Mayakovsky gives some of the 'rules', for instance, the essential rule for beginning a poem is a problem in society that can only be tackled by a work of poetry - the theme, and further - a target. He intermingles his 'rules' with a description of the creative process. For example, fundamental to all poetry is rhyme. It comes to Mayakovsky when he walks through the city. (Beekman, K. Avant-Garde and Criticism). In this book he refers to the verses of A. Kruchionykh, D. Bednyi, K. Balmont, S. Esenin, and compares their poems with his own.

        Der Nibelunge Not. Druck der Ernst Ludwig Presse, Exemplar Nr.5 / 2 Bände (vollständig) * G A N Z P E R G A M E N T - Handeinband

      Darmstadt, Ernst Ludwig Presse, 1927. Vollständige Ausgabe in aufwendig hergestelltem Handeinband der Zeit: 2 Bände, gebunden jeweils als Franzband / Ganzfranzband in Pergament GPgt / Pgt im Format 20 x 27 cm mit Kopfgoldschnitt, goldgeprägtem Rückentitel, feiner Linienblindprägung von Deckeln und Rücken ebenfalls in Goldprägung, handgestochenes Kopfband, 5 erhabene Bünde, Steh- und Innenkanten-Linienvergoldung und Pergamenthäubchen. 205 / 209 Seiten 345 Seiten, auf Zanders-Bütten, zweiseitig unbeschnitten, mit Druckvermerk: \"Druck der Ernst Ludwig Presse zu Darmstadt im Februar neunzehnhundertsiebenzundzwanzig. Hundertfünfunddreissig numerierte Exemplare; einhundert davon für den Freundeskreis der Ernst Ludwig Presse.\" - Eines von 135 (im Druckvermerk in Band 2 numerierten) Exemplaren, von denen seinerzeit nur 35 über den Insel-Verlag in den Handel gekommen sind. - \"Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden. Zum Kapital wird kein schlappes maschinengewebtes Bändchen verwendet, sondern das Kapital wird von Hand mit dem Buchblock umstochen, gibt dadurch dem Rücken einen festen Abschluß und bietet zugleich dem späteren Ledereinschlag (\"Häubchen\") die Unterlage. ). Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen einen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können.\" Aus einem alten Prospekt von Richard Hönn, ehemals Handbinderei des Verlages Albert Langen, Werkstatt für feine Buchbinder- und Lederarbeiten in München, Dienerstrasse 14. - Handgebundenes Exemplar, in sehr guter Erhaltung (kleine Eigentümerstempel jeweils auf Vorsätzen, diese minimal statt fleckig, sonst tadellos). - Deutsche Literatur, Ausgabe in Ganzpergament, Pergamenthandband, Bibliophilie, Handeinband, Meistereinband, deutsche Kunstbuchbinderei / Buchkunst im 20.

        POEMS (1914-1927)

      William Heinemann, Ltd, London 1927 - 230 x 147 mm. (9 x 5 3/4"). xii, 229, [1] pp. No. 63 OF 115 SIGNED COPIES (100 of which were for sale). Graceful navy crushed morocco, gilt, by Sangorski & Sutcliffe (stamp-signed on rear turn-in), covers with an unusual Art Deco-style frame composed of straight and curving gilt rules, dots, and circlets, punctuated with stylized lily and poppy tools, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with a bold floral spray on a ground of gilt dots, red morocco label, turn-ins with geometric tooling, blue floral-printed endpapers, top edge gilt. Original paper wrappers bound in. In a suede-lined slipcase with matching morocco lip. Printed on Ellerslie paper with unicorn watermark. Faint offsetting (from bookmark?) to half title, a few spots of foxing to margin of final leaf, otherwise a very fine copy internally, quite clean, fresh, and bright, and in an as-new binding. This is an attractively bound collection of the early poetry of Robert Graves, including the war poems that first brought him notice. It was compiled with the assistance of his second wife, the American poet Laura Riding, at a time when Graves was struggling to find his footing and his poetic voice in the post-war world. Robert von Ranke Graves (1895-1985) had an unusual childhood among men of his age and class. His father was a British poet, and his mother the daughter of a German academic; he grew up in a literary household where artistic achievement was emphasized over sport and hunting prowess. He was set to study classics at Oxford when the First World War intervened. Like his friend Siegfried Sasson, Graves became a haunting voice for youth in the trenches of France. His memoir of that time, "Goodbye to All That" (1929), brought him lasting fame. His career spanned more than 70 years, and included acclaimed novels, poetry, literary criticism, social history, and groundbreaking works on the influence of classical mythology on literature. The present strictly limited edition is uncommonly seen on the market in agreeable condition. The very pleasant binding here is from the most recent generation of Sangorski productions.
