SYMONS, A. J. A.
London: The Fleuron, 1928. London: The Fleuron,, 1928. Small quarto. Original black buckram-backed vermillion printed patterned paper boards. Just a touch sunned at the spine, merest hint of browning at the edges of the boards, else very good First edition, limited issue, this 281 of 300 copies, and with a flavoursome presentation inscription in Symons' careful calligraphic hand: "For Eddie Marsh with envy for his possessions, and his cook, and admiration for his discernment cordially, AJA Symons". In his reminiscences, A Number of People, Marsh gives his housekeeper and cook Mrs. Elgy centre stage in the chapter dedicated to Personalities, recounting her endearing "I may not be a posh cook, but I hope I'm a cook". There is an honest, and grudgingly self-critical, homage in Symons' inscription. Marsh was widely admired for being at ease with his accomplishments, while Symons was "was possessed of an aggressive resolve for social success... favoured suits of unusual colour and cloth with double-breasted waistcoats, extravagant shirts and ties and pointed, hand-made shoes [and] taught himself calligraphy by copying out passages from the Dictionary of National Biography in a minute Gothic script" (Giles Barber in ODNB).

Small snag at base of spine, lightest toning to vellum, and slight bit of foxing to text. Signed limited large paper edition, one of 1000 numbered copies signed by Dulac, with a letter by Dulac to the editor of the DAILY GRAPHIC. Old French fairy tales by Perrault, D'Aulnoy and Count Hamilton. Laid in is an interesting one-page letter entirely in Dulac's hand and signed by him. Dulac was obviously upset that the public's right to hear all music was being modified. His letter expresses his outrage and certainly is a window into his personality: "I wonder sometimes what the World [word crossed out] would do without the help of the men 'who know what the public wants.'! Their acuteness is proof against failure of any sort, their concern for the intellectual & esthetic welfare of others is paramount, their hardiness can only be compared to that of the methusalesque tortoise, their only weakness is that they do not always know 'what the public want.' And one of the things the public does not want - and which, I understand, is taken into account in Mr. de Lara's scheme - is to be treated like a lot of undeveloped children, and be administered music like a medicine in graduated doses. Discussions as to the relative merits of Parsifal and Maritana are futile, and it is precisely in avoiding these absurd restrictions of the use of certain types of music [phrase crossed out] to certain classes of people, that Mr. de Lara's scheme is valuable.

Marie Laurencin (1883-1956), Artist
Paris, n. d, 1928. One page measuring 8/2 x 11 inches on the artist's stationery. An interesting letter in that Laurencin expresses disillusionment with her work and wants nothing more than to be done with painting and engraving, apparently as an excuse not to even consider a commission. The paper with fold creases, one corner with paperclip stains. Laurencin bought her apartment on 1 rue Savorgnan de Brazza, Paris in 1928. In 1944, the Germans confiscated it and it was not returned to her until 1955 after a long and difficult process.

Original tan cloth, pictorially stamped in colors. Small "1951" postage stamp on front free-endpaper. Title page, frontispiece and two full page illustrations in rose and greenish-blue, twenty-six black and white drawings. A Near Fine copy. "There is no more famous illustrator of children's books in the entire world than Arthur Rackham. Indeed, there are many people who make a point of buying every Rackham book regardless of subject, merely for the sake of the pictures. For, unlike that of many illustrators, Mr. Rackham's work appeals equally to the child and the adult, delighting the young reader by its whimsical humor and multitude of perfectly executed details, and adults by its beauty and artistry. In 'The Lonesomest Doll' Mr. Rackham has found an unusually appealing theme, and he has contributed a series of thirty-one of his unique illustrations (four in color), making a volume that should take its place as one of the finest gift books of the year. Miss Brown's charming story of the proud little queen and her beautiful lonesome doll has held a place for many years among the favorite books of the younger readers, and this new and beautiful edition should make it many new friends" (Front flap of dust jacket).

Sharpe achieved her epithet and her advanced criminal training in the midwest, where the 1893 World's Fair drew her with the promise of easy tourist targets for theft and her many confidence schemes: Though boasting of international ventures to London, Paris, and Rio de Janeiro, Sharpe calls herself with no small pride "a prize-graduate of the Chicago School of Crime." A close associate of - and wife to - several gangsters, Sharpe was an adamant "individualist" who took pains to emphasize that she owed neither her ill-gotten profits nor her notoriety to the men in her life.

Kisakürek was a Turkish poet, novelist, playwright, and Islamist ideologue. He is also known simply by his initials NFK. He was noticed by the French philosopher Henri Bergson, who later became his teacher. In his own words, he was born in "a huge mansion in Çemberlitas, on one of the streets descending towards Sultanahmet" in 1904. His father was Abdülbaki Fazil Bey who held several posts including deputy judge in Bursa, public prosecutor in Gebze and finally, judge in Kadiköy. His mother was an emigree from Crete. He was raised at the Çemberlitas mansion of his paternal grandfather Kisakürekzade Mehmed Hilmi Efendi of Maras; he was named after his great-grandfather Ahmed Necib, as well as his father, Fazil. He studied in many schools during his primary education, including the French School in Gedikpasa, Robert College of Istanbul, as well as the Naval School. He received religious courses from Ahmed Hamdi of Akseki and science courses from Yahya Kemal at the Naval School but he was actually influenced by Ibrahim Askî, whom he defined to have "penetrated into deep and private areas in many inner and outer sciences from literature and philosophy to mathematics and physics". Ibrahim Askî provided his first contact with Sufism even at a "plan of skin over skin". "After completing candidate and combat classes" of Naval School, Kisakürek entered the Philosophy Department of Darülfünûn and graduated from there (19 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Maugham, Somerset
London: William Heinemann, Ltd, 1928. Near-fine in like jacket.. First edition, first impression of Maugham's collection of interrelated stories about a writer employed as a spy in World War I, drawing from the author's personal experience in the British Secret Intelligence Service. Unlike most of the spy literature that was birthed out of 20th-century warfare, Maugham's perspective is influenced by his own experience in intelligence service, emphasizing the everyday tasks - watching, listening - that make up intelligence work, which remains a particularly important insight today. According to his biographer Selina Hastings, Maugham burned fourteen additional stories after Winston Churchill read them and insisted they would be a breach of the Official Secrets Act. Scarce in such a brilliant 1920s-era dust jacket.

Salten, Felix; Wiese, Kurt (illustrator)
New York: Simon and Schuster, 1928. Near fine in very good plus jacket.. First printing of the first trade edition in English, in the scarce original dust jacket (expertly restored). Like many great children's books, Bambi was originally published to an admiring audience of adults, who in time found themselves too sensitive for the terror and brutality of Life in the Woods. To generations scarred in childhood by the softened Disney adaptation, it may seem scarcely credible that Salten's original novel could be still more great and terrible in its presentation of a fawn's first bewildered encounters with pain, death, and sex - but it is. Though BAMBI is easily read as an environmentalist or anti-hunting fable, more recent critics suggest "the text is really best understood not when dehistoricized (as presented by Disney), but rather when read within the specific context of Vienna of the 1920s, as a text that has to do with anti-Semitism and the struggle for a Jewish identity." Salten, born Siegmund Saltzmann, was a Viennese theatre critic, novelist, and screenwriter; author of two other books adapted into Disney films (PERRI and THE HOUND OF FLORENCE (The Shaggy Dog)); assumed author of the notorious erotic novel JOSEPHINE MUTZENBACHER; and nemesis of Karl Kraus. After his works were banned by Hitler in 1936, he and his family emigrated to Switzerland, where he remained until his death.A lovely copy of this "little masterpiece" (Galsworthy).

Muallim Ahmed Halid Kitabhanesi / Aksam Matbaasi, Istanbul, 1928. Paperback. Cr. 8vo. (20 x 14 cm). In Ottoman script. 127, [1] p. The long period of Turkish war, (1911-1922), the efforts to establish the foundations of the new state and introducing new principles to the public, and making them adopt these principles naturally reflected on literature. By the 1930s, however, new republican literature had emerged and was developing in many directions. Nazim Hikmet Ran, a socialist poet who later moved further 'Left' and in 1951 immigrated to the SovietUnion, was already looking beyond the Kemalist Revolution and was anticipating class struggle of the industrialist period. Ironically, this communist poet, who brought so-called classical Marxist humanism into Turkish literature in free verse, wrote the most moving saga of the Turkish War of Independence. Within a few years of his death in the Soviet Union in 1963, his works had been translated into virtually all languages. In contrast o this romantic revolutionary, Yahya Kemal Beyatli constituted a one-man neoclassical school, and Ahmet Hasim wrote a highly colorful symbolist verse under the influence of the French Parnassians. Both poets used the classical quantitative meter and Ottoman vocabulary yet became very popular by appealing to the nostalgia of people who had grown tired of didactic concerns. In reaction to the stereotype, didactic currents in poetry emerged in Seven Torchbearers (Yedi Mes'aleciler), a group that called for experimentation and new departures in the stanzaic and syllabic poetic medium. The group succee … [Click Below for Full Description]
