Woolf, Virginia
New York: Crosby Gaige, 1928. First American Edition. Number 259 of 800 copies for sale signed by the author. A lovely Near Fine copy of the book with a large bookplate on the front paste-down and minor offsetting to the half-title, otherwise appearing unread. Gilt top-edge. Released at the height of Woolf's literary celebrity, Orlando was a thrill to contemporary reviewers: "Those who open Orlando expecting another novel in the vein of Mrs. Dalloway and To the Lighthouse will discover, to their joy or sorrow, that once more Mrs. Woolf has broken with tradition and convention and has set out to explore still another fourth dimension of writing...In this new work she is largely preoccupied with the time element in character and human relationships, and with a statement of the exact complexion of that intangible moment...which we refer to as the present" (Contemporary New York Times review). Blending literary narrative with feminist theory, Orlando explores Einstein's theory of relativity through the lens of a single life that is spread and evolves throughout centuries. "At the beginning of the book, Orlando is a [Elizabethan era] boy of 16, melancholy, indolent, loving solitude and given to writing poetry...the book ends on the 11th October 1928, and Orlando is a thoroughly modern matron of 36 who has published a successful book of poems and has evolved a hard-earned philosophy of life" (Cleveland). The result is an allegory that questions the stability of any human category -- individual character, gender, selfhood -- and a novel that considers how time causes change on mic … [Click Below for Full Description]

Doyle, Arthur Conan; Leblanc, Maurice; McCulley, Johnston; Kikuchi, Kan (translator); Shigeru, Hatsuyama (designer); Toshi, Michioka (illustrator); Nobuo, Imamura (illustrator); Seihachiro, Emori (illustrator)
(Tokyo): (K bunsha), 1928. Illustrated edition of three popular mysteries, one each from America, England, and France, including what is likely the earliest Japanese translation of Arthur Conan Doyle's Sign of Four, published for the use of schoolchildren. This collection is Volume 45 in the short-lived but ambitious series Shogakusei Zenshu, "Complete Works for Primary School Students," which ran to 88 volumes between 1927 and 1928. Sherlock Holmes had been a wildly popular character in Japan since the first translation of The Return of Sherlock Holmes in 1926, followed by this edition of Sign of Four and a second translation of the same novel by Ken Nobuhara the same year (Universal Sherlock Holmes). While only one story in this volume is by Doyle, two feature Holmes. The first story is "The Hollow Needle," Maurice Leblanc's tale of Arsène Lupin, a gentleman burglar who serves as a nemesis to Sherlock Holmes (changed to "Holmlock Shears" after Doyle's objection). Holmes and Lupin each get the better of the other by turns, yet the central storyline follows a boy of seventeen, a detective in the making. The second story, "Subway Sam," features a New York City pickpocket, a modern Robin Hood figure created by Johnston McCulley, a prolific mystery writer for the pulps and creator of Zorro. The final story is Doyle's Sign of Four, in which Mary Morstan asks Holmes's help in solving a mystery of murders, pearls, and the Agra treasure. This translation begins at the very end of Doyle's chapter one, when Mary Morstan's card is presented - leaving out the opening discussion of Ho … [Click Below for Full Description]

COLETTE
Wood-block vignette on title printed in aubergine & one relief halftone plate depicting a painting of the author. 1 p.l., 262 pp., one leaf of colophon & publisher's ads. 8vo, orig. woodblock-printed semi-stiff boards & decorative colored endpapers (signed Seiji Togo), title on spine. Tokyo: Sekaisha, 1928. First edition in Japanese of Colette's Chéri, and the earliest publication of any of her works in Japan. The translator of this work, Sumako Fukao (1888-1974), who became a celebrated poet, lost her husband in 1920. She was convinced by her mentor, the controversial poet and feminist Akiko Yosano, to start writing poetry. Despite the considerable fortune left behind by her husband, Fukao sought to establish herself as a fully independent female intellectual. Yosano again persuaded her to hone her craft in France. Particularly captivated by Colette's work, Fukao began the present translation and met with the author many times at the Palais Royal, developing a close friendship. In the course of these meetings, Colette encouraged Fukao to focus on short stories, even offering to proof-read her latest efforts. Fukao became Colette's devoted translator and much of her later work in prose and verse echoes the subject-matter of Colette's writings. Seiji Togo (1897-1978), an artist famous for his depictions of the female form, designed the Cubist-style purple covers and slip-case. His name is found printed on the lower outer corner of the front free end-paper. Fine copy. We locate only the National Diet Library copy in WorldCat.

She visits countries from China to England giving Voltaire to compare and criticize their customs and beliefs. 4to (323 × 248mm), pp. 1-88, [6], plus 14 coloured etched plates, plus a separate suite of the 14 plates each in three further states (partially coloured, blue and monochrome).

Florence: Privately Printed, 1928. Square octavo. Original pinkish-brown paper covered boards, printed spine label, Lawrence's phoenix device blocked in black on front cover, untrimmed and largely unopened. With the unprinted cream dust jacket. Couple of faint marks to boards, light foxing to edges, contents clean. A near-fine copy in the fragile jacket, slightly foxed and extremities lightly nicked; a very well-preserved example. First edition, number 78 of 1,000 copies signed by Lawrence, uncommon in the jacket. "The publication (for subscribers) of the final version of Lady Chatterley's Lover – written in the astonishing time of just five weeks, in one of Lawrence's last great bursts of creative energy – also sustained him, as he overcame the difficulties lying in the way of an individual publishing and distributing his own book. With the help of the Florentine bookseller Pino Orioli, the handsome volume was printed in and distributed from Florence, and made Lawrence more money than he had ever imagined" (ODNB). The unexpurgated text was not published in the UK until 1960. Roberts & Poplawski A42a (not mentioning the existence of the dust jacket). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

Edmund Dulac (illus.)
London: Cassell & Company, 1928. Published by Cassell & Co.: London, Toronto, Melbourne and Sydney; 1928. **Limited edition Signed by Edmund Dulac** numbered 778 of 1000. A collection of early French fairy tales. Provenance: There is a neat gift inscription reading: 'To Barbara E. Carr on her sixth(?) birthday from Mother. Nov 30, 1928.' This beautiful book has been rebound in half calf and green cloth boards, with gold gilt detailing and lettering to the spine. There is just some mild rubbing to the boards and spine and some minor cracking to the spine ends and wear to the very edges of the boards. Apart from this the binding is sound and in smart, clean condition. The pages are uncut and the top edge is gold gilt. Inside, some slight cracking is visible between the spine and front free endpaper. There is some toning and age spotting throughtout the book, although it is mainly at the edges and otherwise the pages are clean bright and in beautiful condition. All 12 illustrations are accounted for and in lovely, vivid condition, protected by tissue guards and depicting the oriental mood of the tales. There is a free endpaper at the rear of the book that shows signs of having been repaired and reattached to the book, but this is the only major issue in a lovely book. Overall, this beautiful book is in Very Good+ condition and is very collectible, with classic fairy tales and vivid illustrations to bring them to life, this would be an excellent book to add to a collection of rare children's and illustrated books.

MALRAUX André

André Salmon fut parmi les premiers compagnons littéraires de Malraux qui le rencontra en 1919 alors qu'il n'avait que 18 ans. Malraux, qui lui rend régulièrement visite à Montparnasse, le mentionne dès son premier article : « Des origines de la poésie cubiste », paru dans la revue La Connaissance de René-Louis Doyon en janvier 1920. Puis, dans Action, il consacre plusieurs articles à ses romans dont il apprécie l'esthétique réaliste en trompe l'il et la fantaisie qu'il rattache au récit poétique Le Manuscrit trouvé dans un chapeau, paru en 1919 avec des dessins de Picasso, dont il fait constamment l'éloge. Dans le Bruit de nos pas Clara Malraux relate notamment une soirée poétique dans la vallée de la Bièvre, organisée par Action où Malraux dit un poème de Salmon. Les liens se sont distendus par la suite, mais Malraux est resté fidèle à celui qui l'avait accueilli à ses débuts. Devenu ministre de la culture, il a fait accorder une bourse d'écrivain à Salmon, qui l'a aidé dans une période difficile, afin de l'aider à écrire ses Souvenirs sans fin, « grand bouquin de souvenirs poétiques », rapportera Malraux peu de temps avant sa mort à Catherine Gojard.- Photos sur www.Edition-or … [Click Below for Full Description]

BROGLIE, Louis Victor Pierre Raymond De.
Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1926; 1928. First edition. First edition of these expanded presentations of the ideas in de Broglie's epoch-making doctoral thesis on the quantum theory, which, Einstein said, "lifted a corner of the great veil" (Isaacson, Einstein: His Life and Universe, p. 327). In that work he developed the startling and revolutionary idea that material particles such as electrons have a wave as well as a corpuscular nature, analogous to the dual behavior of light demonstrated by Einstein and others in the first two decades of the twentieth century. "He made the leap in his September 10, 1923, paper ['Ondes et quanta,' Comptes Rendus, t. 177]: E = hν should hold not only for photons but also for electrons, to which he assigns a 'fictitious associated wave'" (Pais, Subtle is the Lord, p. 436). "Louis de Broglie achieved a worldwide reputation for his discovery of the wave theory of matter, for which he received the Nobel Prize for physics in 1929. His work was extended into a full-fledged wave mechanics by Erwin Schrödinger and thus contributed to the creation of quantum mechanics" (DSB). De Broglie was awarded the 1929 Nobel Prize in physics "for his discovery of the wave nature of electrons." De Broglie's book Ondes et mouvements (1926) was selected by Carter and Muir for the Printing and the Mind of Man exhibition and catalogue (1967). In his 1905 paper 'Über einen die Erzeugung und Verwandlung des Lichtes betreffenden heuristischen Gesichtspunkt' ('On a Heuristic Viewpoint Concerning the Production and Transformation of Light'), "Einstein postulated that light … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wood-block vignette on title printed in aubergine & one relief halftone plate depicting a painting of the author. 1 p.l., 262 pp., one leaf of colophon & publisher's ads. 8vo, orig. woodblock-printed semi-stiff boards & decorative colored endpapers (signed Seiji Togo), title on spine. Tokyo: Sekaisha, 1928.First edition in Japanese of Colette's Chéri, and the earliest publication of any of her works in Japan. The translator of this work, Sumako Fukao (1888-1974), who became a celebrated poet, lost her husband in 1920. She was convinced by her mentor, the controversial poet and feminist Akiko Yosano, to start writing poetry. Despite the considerable fortune left behind by her husband, Fukao sought to establish herself as a fully independent female intellectual. Yosano again persuaded her to hone her craft in France. Particularly captivated by Colette's work, Fukao began the present translation and met with the author many times at the Palais Royal, developing a close friendship. In the course of these meetings, Colette encouraged Fukao to focus on short stories, even offering to proof-read her latest efforts. Fukao became Colette's devoted translator and much of her later work in prose and verse echoes the subject-matter of Colette's writings.Seiji Togo (1897-1978), an artist famous for his depictions of the female form, designed the Cubist-style purple covers and slip-case.

HARDY, THOMAS.
(Dorchester: Printed Privately by Hy. Ling Ltd, January 1928). First edition, second issue. 4to, original printed gray wrappers, stitched as issued, seven pages. One of over 15 works by Thomas Hardy privately published all in a similar pamphlet format by his wife, Florence Hardy. The earliest examples were printed at the Chiswick Press in 1916, and later ones by Henry Ling of Dorchester. Purdy describes these publications as having statements of limitation, signed or initialed by Mrs. Hardy on the colophon pages, but for "Christmas in the Elgin Room" there was also this second issue without the limitation or signature. The first issue states on the colophon page: "25 copies only printed for Mrs. Thomas Hardy . . . 24th December 1927. This is No. . . ." This second issue states on the colophon page "Printed Privately by Hy. Ling, Ltd, Dorchester, January, 1928." OCLC records both issues, with ten locations for the first issue and one (Houghton) for this second issue. The poem "Christmas in the Elgin Room" was first written in 1905, rewritten in 1926 and first published in the Times in December 1927. It was the last work by Hardy published in his lifetime. He died on January 11, 1928 and soon after the printer Ling apparently printed extra copies from the standing type. The size of the edition is not recorded; nor is it recorded if Mrs. Hardy granted permission for it. Wrappers slightly creased at the edges and slightly soiled; very good copy. Rare.

WOOLF, Virginia.
London: June 1928. 4 sheets (256 x 204 mm), typewritten in purple ink to rectos only, headed with Woolf's typewritten address :"Mrs. Woolf, 52 Tavistock Square, London WC1". Manuscript corrections in ink and pencil by several hands including Virginia Woolf's. Final leaf verso inscribed "Virg. Woolf Intro. to Mrs. Dalloway (Paid July 18 1928)" in pencil. Horizontal folding crease across the middle, some light soiling, very good condition. Virginia Woolf's original typescript, with her autograph corrections in eight places, for her first introduction to Mrs Dalloway, published in the Modern Library edition in 1928. Neither the first edition published by the Hogarth Press in 1925, nor the American edition published by Harcourt, Brace & Co later in the same year, had any Preface or Introduction. This introduction constitutes Woolf's first published commentary on her own novel. In it, she makes one her most significant remarks on her revision of the text, noting that "in the first version Septimus, who later is intended to be her double, had no existence; and that Mrs. Dalloway was originally to kill herself, or perhaps merely to die at the end of the party". The typescript was composed at her Bloomsbury address in Tavistock Square and sent to the Modern Library offices in New York. Woolf hesitates to comment on past work: "Once the young birds can fly, fly they must; and by the time they have fluttered out of the nest the mother bird has begun to think perhaps of another brood. In the same way onc[e] a book is printed and published it ceases to be the property of the author; he … [Click Below for Full Description]

It includes a description of the famous Whampoa (Huangpu) Military Academy, established by Sun Yat-sen in 1924 with help from the Soviet Union and commanded by the young Chiang Kai-shek in his first major post, the Guangzhou radio transmitting station, the aerodrome near the academy, arsenals, railways, fortifications, other prospective military targets, the topography of the region and possible landing sites for an invasion.
