        Love Among the Chickens

      Herbert Jenkins 1928 - London. An interesting item . McClelland and Stewart published The Little Warrior in 1920, well all they did was take the US edition with Doran prelims and stamp their name in green ink on the base of the spine. There was then a gap of six years before they published The Heart of a Goof in 1926. During these years the 11 Herbert Jenkins titles starting with The Coming of Bill and ending with Carry on Jeeves were distributed by Ryerson Press with their label over the price on the spine. Piccadilly Jim was published by McClelland Goodchild and Stewart in 1917 from US sheets. Herbert Jenkins also had the same arrangement with his own books. So this is not a Canadian edition but the closest we have .There were 10,000 copies of the tenth printing and I suspect around 500 went to Ryerson.I think a similiar arrangement was made in South Africa but have yet to find proof .500 copies sounds about right as the population of Canada in 1920 was around 8.5 million with a lot of those being French speaking .

        THE GOLEM translated by Madge Pemberton

      Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin Co.,. [1928]. original purple cloth, front and spine panels stamped in black, top edge stained black, fore-edge untrimmed.. A fine copy in bright, near fine art deco dust jacket (designed by E.. McKnight Kauffer) with light wear at edges, mainly head of spine. panel and upper corners and three faint damp stains to spine panel.. Quite scarce in jacket. (#20487). First edition in English, U.S. issue (made up from British sheets). Meyrink's first novel "prefigures that disastrous climax [World War I] to a century of growth and change. The phantasmagorical, threatened Prague of this novel - its wainscots haunted by a Golem who is more like a psychic fog than an actual entity, and the false polder of its ghetto withering under the baleful light of a new century - makes THE GOLEM into a pure urban fantasy: a tale whose setting, like some vast subterranean edifice, seems literally alive, organic, all-encompassing, Gothic. It is, however, like most twentieth-century urban fantasies distinguished from its Gothic ancestors through a sense that the fall of the city will be a bad omen for its inhabitants, not a release. At the same time, the pending destruction of Prague (and all of Europe itself) is treated by Meyrink with a deep ambivalence, and his next novels all tend to present the apocalypse as an occult cleansing of the material world so that higher unions of the spirit can be achieved." - Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (1997), p. 642. "Key work of German Expressionism." - Barron (ed), Horror Literature 3-148. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1173. Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy, p. 642.

Elle est illustrée de quatre frontispices lithographiés, tirés en noir sur fond or, du peintre José Maria SERT, dédicataire de l'?uvre. Tirage limité à 331 EXEMPLAIRES, celui-ci UN des 275 numérotés sur PUR FIL (n°41). Cette édition en quatre tomes offre la version intégrale de LA PLUS GRANDE RÉUSSITE THÉÂTRALE de Paul Claudel. Commencée en 1919, achevée en 1924, cette pièce surplombe l'oeuvre dramatique de Claudel. Il s'agit, selon l'une de ses formules aux variantes multiples, d'un «énorme drame, mélange incongru de bouffonnerie, de passion et de mysticité ». La pièce fut créée en 1943 à la Comédie-Française par Jean-Louis Barrault, dans une version considérablement abrégée. Antoine Vitez poussera, lui, l'audace jusqu'à faire tenir l'intégrale en une seule représentation. ("En français dans le texte", n° 337). SÉDUISANT EXEMPLAIRE conservé dans son étui décoré d'origine ; les fragiles couvertures sont en TRÈS BEL ÉTAT, condition RARE. FINE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST.

Forty-eight of its productions were illustrated with wood-engravings.

        CASABELLA.

      Di questa celebrata e intramontabile rivista mensile illustrata, offriamo la raccolta di "tutto il pubblicato" dal gennaio 1928 (Anno I, n, 1) al dicembre 1995 (n. 629). Casabella può essere descritta attraverso la storia delle variazioni dei suoi nomi: - 1928/1929: "La Casa bella. Arti e industrie de l'arredamento" e poi "Rivista per gli amatori de La Casa bella", edita dallo Studio Editoriale Milanese. Diretta da G. Marangoni. (in 24 numeri) - 1930/1932 (dal n. 25 al 60): "La Casa bella". Direzione di A. Bonfiglioli. - 1933/1937 (dal 61 al 120): "Casabella. Rivista mensile di architettura e di tecnica", pubblicata dall'Editoriale Domus. Diretta da G. Pagano - E. Persico partecipa prima come redattore e poi come condirettore fino alla morte (1936). - 1938/1939 (dal 121 al 144): "Casabella Costruzioni. Rivista mensile di architettura". Direzione di G. Pagano. - 1940/1943 (dal 145 al 191/192): "Costruzioni Casabella. Rivista mensile di architettura e di tecnica". A Pagano si affianca F. Matricardi, redattore capo. La rivista cessa le pubblicazioni su imposizione del Ministero per la cultura popolare nel dicembre 1943 (con il n. 191/192), dopo che Pagano era già stato imprigionato e deportato. - Casabella riprende nel 1946 con il titolo: "Costruzioni. Rivista mensile", diretta da F. Albini e G. Palanti (alcune copp. sono disegnate da A. Steiner). I numeri pubblicati sono: 193 - 194 - 195/198 (4 fascic. in 1) dedicati a Pagano. - Dal 1947 al 1953 la rivista non viene pubblicata. - 1953/1964: in dicembre (n. 199) riprendono le pubblicazioni, con il titolo: "Casabella Continuità. Rivista internazionale di architettura". Con il n. 223 (1959) varia il sottotitolo: "Rivista internazionale di architettura e urbanistica". Direzione di E.N. Rogers. La rivista vive un momento particolarmente intenso grazie alla partecipazione di famosi architetti quali: De Carlo, Zanuso, Gregotti, Argan, Guiducci, Nervi, Paci, Quaroni, Sacchi, Samonà, Rossi, Baffa, Canella, Semerani, Tintori, Aymonino, e con la grafica a cura di Gae Aulenti. Nel gennaio del 1965 l'editore revoca la direzione a Rogers (ultimo suo numero il 295) e predispone la cessione della testata. - 1965/1970: (nn. 296-348) "Casabella.
