        ORIGINAL PEN-AND-INK PORTRAIT OF ALICE (From the 1929 Alice's Adventures In Wonderland Illustrated By Willy Pogány

      New York, 1929. Willy Pogány (Hungarian/American, 1882-1955). ORIGINAL PEN-AND-INK PORTRAIT OF ALICE from his 1929 illustrated "Alice's Adventures In Wonderland" published by E. P. Dutton. This important and exceedingly lovely piece of artwork served as the half-title illustration. Of the 60 or so original exuberant drawings accomplished by Pogány for this edition, this is certain one of the key images, serving as his best portrait of Alice as a short-haired 1920s "flapper." This small gem of an image is 3.5" x 3.5" situated in the center of a large sheet of 11" by 14" heavy art paper which bears Pogány's penciled notations. These notations are now covered by an acid-free art matte but we photographed it (see photo) so one can see how looked in toto prior to framing and glazing. Pogány has initialed the drawing at the lower left. The detail of the drawing is spectacular in comparison to the actual printed illustration (also see our photo of the published book image to compare). In Very Good to Fine condition, sharply inked. Many Alice collectors consider Pogany's whimsical interpretation of the Wonderland characters to be the first truly original interpretation since John Tenniel himself. The drawing currently resides inside a custom art nouveau style frame, matted to size, with the highest quality "museum" glass; however it can be sold and shipped unframed and a $500.00 discount credit is thus available. Provenance: Book Sail Catalogue #16 (1986). . Signed. Unbound. Very Good. Illus. by Willy Pogány.

        Lady Chatterley's Lover.

      Florence: Privately printed [Edward Titus], 1929., 1929. Second authorized edition: the Author's Unabridged Popular Edition. Octavo, pp.365. Bound in original brown paper wrappers printed in black, with Phoenix design to front cover, white label to spine, price "60Frs" to upper right and "LeCram Press-Paris" printed on back cover. One of 3000 copies printed; the novel was initially published in an edition of 1,000 copies by the Orioli Press, Florence (1928), and was almost immediately pirated by at least four different publishers. Lawrence had always intended to release a cheap version, and hoped that this official cheaper edition would discourage piracies. He struck a deal with Edward Titus and wrote a new introduction regarding the pirated printings entitled 'My Skirmish with Jolly Roger'. Fragile covers with some wear, a few tears to joints, some small chips to spine ends, title label intact, some edge-chipping. Overall a decent copy of this notoriously fragile book, seldom seen in such condition. Housed in a bespoke black morocco-spined clamshell box with felt lining. An uncommon survival.

        THE TREASURY OF THE SIPHNEANS AT DELPHI Photographs by Clarence Kennedy Executed with the Assistance of the American School at Athens.

      Northampton, Massachusetts: Smith College, 1929. Portfolio, approximately 20" x 12" (50 x 30 cm), containing 64 gelatin silver prints mounted on heavy board, preceded by a single folded leaf with the title page, a listing of the 64 plates, and a colophon that reads: "The plates were printed by Clarence Kennedy directly from the film negative, on Athena Paper, manufactured by the Eastman Kodak Company. The type was prepared at the Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts. Of this volume fifty-seven copies have been printed, of which this is number 17." This collection of 64 photographs was issued as Studies in the History and Criticism of Sculpture Volume IV, which was part of an eventual seven-volume series of photographic portfolios by Kennedy. This scholar-photographer (1892-1972) was appointed director of Smith College's division of graduate studies in Europe in 1925. This followed by only a few years his studies as a Charles Eliot Norton Fellow of Harvard University at the American School of Classical Studies in Athens. According to the National Gallery, Kennedy mounted and assembled each edition himself, and issued each one in extremely limited numbers. The Siphnean Treasury in Delphi dates from approximately 530 BC; the phorographs are of its frieze. The photographs themselves are in fine condition; the collection is collated and complete. The title and contents leaf shows some light soil and handling creases. The portfolio, which is covered in deep blue cloth with front cover and spine paper title labels, has one internal 2"inch cloth break at the bottom of the front hinge, and the top cover is lightly speckled, possibly from paint. The tape ties are present. Many of the copies are owned by universities, and there do not seem to be any auction records extant. Additional photographs are available by request.

        ORIGINAL PEN-AND-INK PORTRAIT OF THE MAD HATTER (From the 1929 Alice's Adventures In Wonderland Illustrated By Willy Pogany

      New York, 1929. Willy Pogány (Hungarian/American, 1882-1955). ORIGINAL PEN-AND-INK PORTRAIT OF THE MAD HATTER (From his illustrated 1929 Alice's Adventures In Wonderland published by E. P. Dutton). This marvelous drawing is that illustrating "Who Stole the Tarts?" from Chapter 11, page 172, wherein The Queen of Hearts is accusing the Mad Hatter of the crime. Pogany's version has the Mad Hatter trembling with fear as he clutches his tea cup and toast. The image is 4.75" x 3.5" situated in one corner of a large sheet of 11" by 14" heavy art paper. Pogány has initialed the drawing at the lower right. His lightly penciled outline and notations can also be seen. The detail of the drawing (which is sharply inked and in Very Good condition indeed) is spectacular in comparison to the actual printed illustration (see our photo of the actual size of the book image to compare). We originally saw this illustration in The Book Sail's 16th Anniversary Catalogue way back in 1984. It's our pleasure to finally be able to both handle it and find it a good home.. Signed. Unbound. Very Good. Illus. by Willy Pogany.

        GOOD-BYE TO ALL THAT AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1929. Salmon cloth, stamped in gilt. Portrait, plates and maps. Near fine in a very good example of the Len Lye pictorial dust jacket (lightly dust darkened, one inch closed tear at top edge of lower panel with an unobtrusive early mend on the verso, some very shallow chips at the spine ends). First edition, first issue, of Graves' controversial, creatively embellished memoir of his early life and war experiences, with the text on pp. 290 and 341-3 intact, the latter printing the unauthorized partial transcription of Sassoon's poetic epistle to Graves, "I'd Timed My Death in Action to the Minute," which caused the rift between the two friends and Sassoon's request that the publisher remove it. The traditional speculation, based on Fabes and Foyle (1931), that fewer than one hundred copies of the first issue "are in existence" is parroted as recently as in Williams' revision of Higginson; Ahearn and Hahn's Graves checklist quotes a 1932 note by Wm Jackson Ltd. suggesting that some 250 early copies sent to exporters escaped the recall and cancellation of the leaves as well. However, even setting aside considerations of the normally greater attrition rate for exported books (unless, of course, they are exported to an American bookselling firm dealing in moderns), this higher figure still does not speak to the considerable frequency with which copies occur, particularly in better than average condition. It has long been this cataloguer's suspicion that a considerable number of copies were indeed exported, but into the inventory of a major North American firm (now defunct) dealing in moderns. Falls, like so many other contemporary readers, thought Graves' war scenes "excellent; they are, in fact, among the few in books of this nature which are of real historical value," but felt his attitude left something to be desired.

        THE BOOK OF TOBIT AND THE HISTORY OF SUSANNA

      London: Haymarket Press, 1929. Unnumbered, but ONE OF 13 COPIES SIGNED BY THE ARTIST AND PRINTED ON VELLUM (along with 100 deluxe copies and 875 regular copies on paper) n. Hardcover. 254 x 191 mm (10 x 7 1/2"). xvi, 47 pp. Introduction by Dr. Montague R. James. Unnumbered, but ONE OF 13 COPIES SIGNED BY THE ARTIST AND PRINTED ON VELLUM (along with 100 deluxe copies and 875 regular copies on paper). Publisher's limp vellum, gilt titling, cover laced with green silk ribbon. With four color plates by W. Russell Flint, printed on paper and mounted on vellum leaves. Ransom, p. 314; "Modern British and American Private Presses," p. 103. A hint of splaying to covers, minor variation in the grain of the vellum, otherwise a very fine copy--clean, fresh, and smooth inside and out. This is a very pleasing vellum copy of one of just four books published by the short-lived Haymarket Press, established by Halton and Truscott Smith and operated from 1928-30. According to Ransom, the Smiths intended to issue all books of the Apocrypha with illustrations by Russell Flint, beginning with the Book of Judith in 1928, and continuing with the present work the following year. Unfortunately, the contemplated project did not go further. Flint (1880-1969) was especially noted for his female nudes, and here we--with the lecherous elders--see Susanna in her bath. DNB notes that Flint began his career as "a medical illustrator recording the effects of leprosy, eye disease, and South African War wounds," and suggests that his penchant for drawing "an unchanging perfectly proportioned female type in various exotic guises" was his way of "imagin[ing] away all signs of the ravages of the twentieth century."
