        The Spirit of Solitude, An Autohagiography Subsequently re-Antichristened The Confessions of Aleister Crowley (2 Volumes)

      London: The Mandrake Press, 1929. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. 2 Volumes. Hardcover. Quarto. Bound in white buckram with Crowley?s stylized self portrait and titles in black to front of both volumes. Gilt titles, volume numbers, and phallic seven-pointed star design to spines. Issued without dust jackets. Bevelled edges. Top edges gilt. Portrait frontispiece in each volume. 284, 307 pages. Errata slip present at end of volume two. Illustrated with full-page black and white photographs plus several diagrams. NOTE: This set once belonged to eccentric inn-keeper John Fothergill (author of An Inn-Keeper?s Diary, 1938, and owner of the Spread Eagle in Thame). There is a small, short phrase in Fothergill?s hand in ink to the lower front board of volume two which reads: ?This latmiographito. Oh, you naughty man!? Laid in is a hand written and signed letter by Fothergill?s grandson (also named John Fothergill). The letter reads as follows: ?The two volumes of Crowley?s memoirs were given by the author to my grandfather and namesake, John Fothergill, the author and innkeeper, who knew Crowley as a visitor to the Spread Eagle in Thame in the 1920s. His note on the front cover of one of the volumes was prompted by the way the letter ?A? has been formed.? Reference is to Crowley?s well-known phallic ?A? which he used often as part of his signature. This is the first edition of Crowley?s Confessions in two volumes. Crowley?s desire was that this work be published in six total volumes but due to various financial factors and the eventual demise of The Mandrake Press, the project had to be halted. In 1969 John Symonds and Kenneth Grant were able to edit and issue a single volume edition of Confessions which included much from the four unpublished volumes. A fair amount of text and several photographs from these first two volumes were not included in the later editions, much of this material was related to Crowley?s mountaineering and travel adventures and is available nowhere else. There is still plenty on magick within these pages. It is unclear at this time as to whether the John Fothergill who wrote the accompanying letter is, or is in any way related to, the John Fothergill who was a founding member of the band Nurse With Wound. There is light rubbing to both volumes and a few marks to buckram on spines and to cover of volume two. Spines are just slightly yellowed (much less than often found). A tiny amount of foxing and some age toning to preliminaries and inner edges. Bindings are tight and secure. Overall this is quite an attractive set in very good or better condition.

        Brigadier-General R.B. Bradford, V.C., M.C. and his Brothers.

      [London printed, but Durham: For the family,] 1929 - Octavo. Original blue ribbed cloth on bevelled boards, title gilt to the spine, and to the upper board together with the crest of the Durham Light Infantry. Very slightly rubbed at the extremities, spine a touch sunned, else a very good copy. Triple-fold photogravure frontispiece, printed in sepia, facsimile signatures. First edition, one of just 50 copies printed on japon. No copy on COPAC, no copy in BL, not in IWM, a single copy (Calgary) on OCLC. The four Bradford brothers were the sons of a Durham colliery owner. Three were killed in the war; two won the VC, the only brothers to do so; and the third won the MC. The survivor Thomas Bradford was awarded the DSO for his services with the 8th Bn. DLI. This copy inscribed by Thomas and by Major Welch, one of the compilers: "To George Hunter, To whom that part of the book which deals with Roland Bradford owes so much." Loosely inserted two-page letter from Welch to Hunter: "The book owes more to you than to anybody else, and in sending you a copy I wish to express to you again my warm thanks for the difficult work you did in bringing it into being." Hunter has added a page of pencilled notes on his involvement in the writing of the book, and on the delays that attended its final publication. Loosely inserted news-clipping about Sir Thomas (as he later became) Bradford's retirement as a magistrate in Durham in 1961 at the age of 75; he died in 1966. A nicely provenanced copy of a desperately uncommon book. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Kreisa fronte. N. 6. 1. XII. 1929. [Left Front. No. 6. December 1, 1929.]

      Linards Laicens (Latvju Kultura, Riga 1929 - With photographic illustrations. First edition. Printed in 1300 copies. In publisher's, constructivist cover. Printed in orange and black. 47, (1) p. "Kreis? fronte" was the first substantial leftist Latvian-language journal with international aspirations. Its concept and format followed Vladimir Mayakovsky's magazine the "LEF" and the design of "Novy Lef". Only 17 issues were published between 1928 and 1930 (the last one was double), when it was banned by the authorities, and Laicens launched his new magazine the "Trib?ne". The content of "Kreis? fronte" was more cultural than political, contained avant-garde literary elements as well as photographic artwork. The editor, Linards (Petrovich) Laicens (1883-1938) was a Latvian Expressionist writer and poet, active in politics as a member of Communist party.

        The Winding Stair.

      New York: The Fountain Press,, 1929. Octavo. Original blue cloth, gilt lettered spine, red morocco labels, gilt floral borders on sides, top edges gilt, text printed on green paper, edges untrimmed. Bookplate of M. O'Gorman Munkhouse to front pastedown. Some minor fading to cloth, internally fresh. An excellent copy. First published edition, first printing, one of 12 copies printed on green paper. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "Inscribed for James A. Healy, in memory of that particular Irishman & our friend Richard Campbell. W. B. Yeats." The recipient, James Augustine Healy (1890-1975) was an Irish-American stockbroker, bibliophile, and patron of Irish writers, who had an extensive correspondence with Elizabeth C. Yeats and George Yeats, from whom he obtained all the Dun Emer and Cuala Press books. Judge Richard Campbell, to whom Yeats refers in the inscription, was an Irish-born American lawyer, who assisted in forming a syndicate of Americans to re-establish the Irish Statesman. This is number 72 of 642 copies signed by the author on the half-title; this particular copy is cited by Wade in the second edition of his bibliography. However, Wade is seemingly unaware of the bibliographical background of this edition: it was in fact initially intended for publication under Crosby Gaige's imprint. The aborted issue consisted of 712 copies, of which 12 were printed on green paper, and 650 were for sale. The project was taken over when Gaige sold the publishing house in December 1928 to his business partner James Wells, who changed the firm's name to Fountain Press. The edition was thus published under The Fountain Press imprint with a redesigned title page and colophon in a limited issue of 642 copies. The 12 copies on green paper were incorporated into the rest of the limitation, hence why, most unusually for a bibliographically distinct issue, they were numbered randomly in the sequence.

      Munich: Kurt Wolff, 1929. First edition. Sander, August. 4to., (18) pp., with 60 full-page b&w plates after photos. Publisher's yellow cloth over flexible boards. The cloth is moderately soiled, with foxing along the outer edges of the text block and lightly on the blank first and last leaves. This copy was presented as a gift in 1929 in a neat hand on the blank leaf proceeding the title page. Internally bright, this is a very good copy. Sanders conceived of a mammoth photographic project to photograph people of every class of society "archetypes of the modern era." His first presentation of this project was in this book ANTLITZ DER ZEIT. The Nazi regime suppressed this project because it reflected "undesirables." After the Nazi era, Sander continued this project until his death.
