      Garden City: Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc.,. 1929. original dark blue cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold, decorated endpapers.. Gold stamping on spine panel a bit dull, a clean, tight, very good. copy. A wonderful association copy. (#147712). First U.S. edition. A presentation copy with nice inscription by Wells on the title page: "To R. H. Winter / who was kind beyond words / to poor lost Odette Keun/ - such a timid woman / Gratefully, / H. G. Wells / [sketch of a string of camels with Odette running past a signpost labeled "To the Sudan," captioned "I want to go to the desert where there ain't no Wells"]. Below this Odette has written: "Now I ask you: is that like me? O.K." Accompanied by an holograph letter to Winter from Odette dated May 8, n.y., written on two postcards with photographic views of the villa, "Lou Pidou," which she and Wells built on the French Riviera. (One of these pictures is reproduced on page 408 of Smith.) Odette writes she is sending Winter "Pidoo's short stories as I don't know when his new book will be out ... and a short story of mine in French." She and Wells "are both here [at the villa] in incessant rain, & both writing, Pidoo a Great Fat book which is called the 'Science of Work & Wealth" ... and I an article on the Sudan ... such a unique colonial experiment that my professional conscience won't give me any rest until I say what I think about it ..." Odette Keun and Wells lived together for many years during the 1920s and 1930s. Their relationship ended badly -- Wells dumped her -- and subsequently Keun wrote some very mean things about him ("H. G. Wells - - The Player." TIME AND TIDE, October 1934). Wells caricatured her as "Dolores Wilbeck" in APROPOS OF DOLORES, a bitingly amusing novel published in 1938. For a good account of their tumultuous relationship, see Smith, pp. 408-15. Anatomy of Wonder (1981) 1-179; (1987) 1-102; (1995) 1-102; and (2004) II-1231. Bleiler (1978), p. 205. Reginald 10067.

        The Legion Book, an extraordinary copy of the limited issue of the first edition, finely bound and signed by 85 prominent contributing writers and artists and four prime ministers, three British and one French

      London: Privately printed by The Curwen Press for H.R. H. The Prince of Wales, 1929. First edition, limited issue, signed. Leather-bound. This is the beautiful and rare limited, finely bound issue of the first edition, signed by 89 individuals comprising a stunning constellation of leading lights in British literature and arts, including all of the contributing writers and illustrators, as well as four prime ministers. The First World War is often eclipsed by the world-consuming conflagrations of the latter part of the twentieth century, notably the Second World War and Cold War. But it was the First World War that truly stunned civilization, ushering an age of inconceivable carnage and vast, industrialized brutality. When war came in August 1914, prevailing sentiment held that industrialized war would be decisive and short. “You will be home before the leaves have fallen from the trees,” Kaiser Wilhelm assured his troops leaving for the front in August. More than four extraordinary bloody years followed, lasting until the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918. In his own history of the First World War, Winston Churchill wrote: “Overwhelming populations, unlimited resources, measureless sacrificeÂ… could not prevail for fifty months…” The British Empire alone suffered nearly 3.2 million casualties, including more than 900,000 dead and more than 2 million wounded. At the end of the First World War, the pension for a totally disabled man was only 30 shillings a week and no claim could be made seven years after discharge. In May 1921 several ex-servicemenÂ’s organizations were amalgamated to form the Royal British Legion. Thereafter, the Legion actively involved itself with the social issues of employment and pensions for both able and disabled ex-servicemen or their dependants. The Legion Book was commissioned by the LegionÂ’s patron, H.R.H. The Prince of Wales (later Edward VIII and, after his abdication, the Duke of Windsor), with sale proceeds dedicated to the Legion. The 85 contributing artists were among the most talented British subjects in their fields, including Winston Churchill, Rudyard Kipling, P.G. Wodehouse, Aldous Huxley, Vita Sackville-West, G.K. Chesterton, Hilaire Belloc, Augustus John, Eric Kennington, and John Nash. The book was edited by James Humphrey Cotton Minchin (1894-1966), a First World War veteran of the Cameronians and the Royal Flying Corps. Trade editions ran to multiple printings, but there was also a 600 copy limited edition. 500 of these were signed by the editor, but “the first 100 were reserved for H.R.H. the Prince of Wales, sponsor of the volume, in his gift.” These hundred were simply magnificent - printed in red and black by The Curwen Press on larger, hand-made paper, profusely illustrated, beautifully bound in elaborately blind and gilt-tooled white pigskin, and signed by 89 luminaries. Massive volumes, they measure 13 x 10 x 2 inches and weigh 6.6 pounds. This is a magnificent, fine example of one of these hundred copies, rendered particularly special by being an unnumbered copy in exceptional condition, preserved in the original folding cloth clamshell box. All 85 contributing artists signed this copy. Four additional signatures are those of three British Prime Ministers – David Lloyd George, Stanley Baldwin, and Ramsay MacDonald – and French Prime Minister Georges Clemenceau. The tally is five prime ministers if we count Churchill, who signed as a contributor, but would become prime minister himself in 1940. Signatures appear on seven different pages within. The binding is nearly flawless, with virtually no wear and only trivial hints of soiling, staining, and minimal handling. The contents are bright and clean, with trivial spotting confined to the endsheets. The limitation page bears no number; we have not encountered another copy thus. Superlative condition owes to the presence of the original felt-lined cloth clamshell case. The case shows modest scuffing and staining, and some spotting of the felt lining. Bibliographic reference: Cohen B38.1, Woods B12(a).

        The Brook Kerith. A Syrian Story with twelve engravings by Stephen Gooden.

      William Heinemann Ltd, London 1929 - First illustrated Edition. No.54 of 375 copies, signed by Moore and Gooden. 12 original copper engravings (nine full-page). Tall 8vo, original full vellum, gilt lettering on spine, untrimmed. Few dark spots on the vellum as usual, edges a little darkened, otherwise good. In 1913 the important Irish author George Moore (1852-1933) journeyed to Jerusalem to research background for his novel The Brook Kerith. This book is based on the supposition that a non-divine Christ did not die on the cross but was nursed back to health and eventually travelled to India to learn wisdom which obviously embroiled Moore in considerable controversy." Moore importance was huge. According to Richard Ellmann he heavily influenced Joyce and is often referred to as the first great modern Irish novelist.

      Madrid 1929 - Materia: Libro del siglo XX. Poesía. Canarias. ilustración. Modernismo. Ultraísmo. Surrealismo. Publicación: Madrid, ALFA, 1929. Primera edición. Descripción física: Octavo (19 cm.) 127 páginas. Rústica editorial. Conservación: Buen estado, cubiertas sucias y con pequeños desperfectos. Notas: Dedicatoria y firma manuscrita del Autor. Agustín Espinosa García Estrada:Fue un poeta y narrador español, nacido en el Puerto de la Cruz en 1897, Tenerife y fallecido en Los Realejos en 1939. La obra literaria de Agustín Espinosa, notablemente dispersa desde sus orígenes, abarcaría una gran diversidad de géneros, tales como el de la poesía, el relato, diarios, cartas, conferencias, artículos de opinión, prólogos, ensayos, así como una posiblemente inconclusa pieza teatral. La personalidad y escritura de Agustín Espinosa, figura clave para el entendimiento del renacer cultural canario tras las pretéritas incursiones del archipiélago en las tendencias de la Ilustración y el modernismo, supondrían un fenómeno decisivo en el desarrollo de la vanguardia literaria dentro de las islas y en la implicación de Canarias con respecto al movimiento surrealista internacional. Con ocasión de su destinamiento en Lanzarote, el recién nombrado Comisario Regio del nuevo Instituto local de Arrecife compondría una serie de redacciones o capítulos que, más tarde, supondrían el contenido íntegro de su trabajo de vanguardia Lancelot 28º-7º [Guía integral de una isla atlántica], obra de difícil clasificación y una poética y estética rupturistas que, sin embargo, reflejaría con claridad la apuesta de su autor por la continuidad de los principios formales y universalistas expuestos con anterioridad en La Rosa de los Vientos.

        Gods' Man and Mad Man's Drum (two volume set) with signed self-portrait

      New York: Jonathan Cape & Harrison Smith, 1929 & 1930. First editions. Two volume set in a boxed. Octavos [21 cm] 1/4 black cloth over black and white illustrated boards. Both volumes near fine. In publisher's slipcase that is very good. Self portrait is fine. Ward's first and second "wordless novels" sold in the Jonathan Cape slipcase that has the same artwork as the boards of Mad Man's Drum. This set was issued with a signed self portrait of Ward. This set and print were likely made as a promotional piece and gifted to friends of the publisher and artist. The self-portrait was limited to 100 copies. Scarce Ward wrote of the works "I had earlier believed that every block should be conceived in the simplest terms possible, then cut with an absolute minimum of tool work. I had worked on the premise that every image should be developed only as far as was necessary to produce a comprehensible statement for that particular point in the visual sequence. Now, with those earlier miles behind me, it seemed reasonable to take a different approach to the actual cutting the blocks. In God's Man, except for the use of round and flat gravers to remove the white areas, all the rendering of figures and landscapes had been done with a single line tool. I Madman's Drum, by contrast, I sought to develop a wider range of tool work and utilized small round gravers to break up a large dark area with small jabs of the tool, thus achieving a variety both of tonal effect and textural quality. At the same time, I put more emphasis on decorative patterns in such things as dress material and the walls of interiors, which I hoped would not only result in richer and more varied impact from block to block but also help the reader identify recurring characters and backgrounds more readily as the story developed.

        'De la passion de la colère - saura être brutal. De la vulgarité morale'. Grafologisch dossier in opdracht van Gaston Burssens samengesteld door Jéhanne Salti-Goetz (1890-1945) met psychologische handschriftanalyses van J. Slauerhoff, E. du Perron, Paul van Ostaijen en Gaston Burssens. 1929-1930.

      Drie uitvoerige analyses in het Frans in handschrift van Salti (die van Du Perron in onbekend handschrift) en vier (uitgebreide) begeleidende brieven in het Frans in handschrift van Salti aan Burssens (d.d. 19-9-1929, 3-3-1930, 30-4-1930 en 29-7-1930). Met een afschrift door Burssens van een brief van Du Perron aan Burssens over zijn handschriftanalyse (d.d. 14-2-1930).* Op 28 maart 1930 ontleedde Salti een handschrift van Slauerhoff: '[...] onmethodisch, beheerst gevoelsleven dat zich plotseling heftig kan uiten, assimilatievermogen, verbeeldingskracht, meegaand, arglistig en ongrijpbaar karakter [...]' (vertaling; geciteerd naar Hazeu). Het handschrift met haar bevindingen ('Etude Graphologique/ (Mr? Slauerhof copie)'; 40 regels tekst) is in dit dossier aanwezig, evenals die van Du Perron, Van Ostaijen en Burssens. Salti ontleedde de literaire handschriften zonder enige kennis van de schrijvers. De analyse van Van Ostaijen is door Burssens gepubliceerd in een aflevering van Vlaamsche Arbeid (1929), terwijl de overige drie lange tijd als verloren gegaan werden beschouwd.Du Perron nam het grafologisch werk van madame Salti serieus: de analyse van Van Ostaijen vond hij 'voortreffelijk', die van Slauerhoff 'werkelijk opvallend juist, voor zover ik kan beoordelen'. De schrijver ontmoette Salti ook enkele malen. Slauerhoffs reactie is helaas niet overgeleverd.Bijgevoegd is Salti's exemplaar van J. Cuissinat, Pour connaître l'homme par son écriture (Parijs 1931), boordevol tekst en uitleg. Interessante en comtemporaine verzameling pseudowetenschappelijke literaria.

      O. O. u. D. - 2 SS. auf 2 Bll. Gr.-4to. Der Schlussabsatz seines zuerst 1929 erschienenen Aufsatzes "Die Angst des Ingenieurs" in einer neuen Fassung für den Sammelband "Verfremdungen I" (Frankfurt a. M., 1962); mehrere Zeilen vom Druck abweichend und mit zahlreichen Korrekturen. - "6. Soviel hier über einen merkwürdigen Fall von heute, erst recht von morgen. Über die Angst eines Ingenieurs und was sie ohne jede Überlastung mehrfach bedeuten mag. Armselig wäre es, wollte man sie mit irgend etwas Spukhaftem oder sogenannt Okkultem in Bezug [.] setzen. Steinerisches ist nichts dabei [.] Abgelehnt wurde ebenso, daß darin Kapital für den Okkultismus der besseren Herren sei, nämlich für den 'Untergang der Erde am Geist' oder für den 'Geist als Widersacher der Seele'. Der Ingenieur mag, obwohl politisch ein Sozialist, von dem modischen Klages und seinem 'Kosmogonischen Eros' vernommen haben, doch sein Chok war naiv [.] nicht reaktionär [.]". - Beiliegend 2 Typoskripte: eine vollständige Abschrift dieses Textes mit Korrekturen von fremder Hand (Satzvorlage, 1 S., gr.-4to) sowie eine verworfene Kurzfassung (¼ S., gr.-4to) mit einem eh. Vermerk von Ernst Bloch "weiter auf gleicher Seite [.]" (auf der Rückseite eine (irrige) Notiz von fremder Hand "Nicht in 'Verfremdungen I'!").

        Report on Horne Zoological Corporation

      Los Angeles, 1929. 100 pp of typed documents and an additional 50 album leaves mounted with approximately 50 photographs (various sizes and processes), and various documents. Folio. Limp leatherette with title and recipient name stamped in gilt to upper cover. Large black quarter morocco clamshell box, gilt. 100 pp of typed documents and an additional 50 album leaves mounted with approximately 50 photographs (various sizes and processes), and various documents. Folio. "It is proposed that a COMPLETE ZOOLOGICAL GARDENS be opened to the public on a fifty cent admission basis, which is to be properly laid out as an attractive Zoological and Botanical Garden with the finest and largest private collection of animals, birds and reptiles to be seen anywhere on the continent..." The advent of the motion picture industry in California had many wide-ranging ramifications on the business world and one was that it created a new market for firms who traditionally supplied animals to circuses and zoos (both public and private, owned by the likes of William Randolph Hearst). This archive is a report by the Investment Auditors of California for the Horne Corporation that was looking to expand by establishing a zoological garden in the environs of Los Angeles. The Horne Corporation was the largest and most successful of its type at the time, apparently the only company in the US that could completely outfit a circus with both animals and show equipment. They were to purchase the Los Angeles Zoological Garden and Jungle Studio (for $250,000) and thereby sought to provide a similarly complete service to the film studios with both animals and suitable locations for film sets. The head of the company, I.S. Horne, for whom this report was compiled, commenced trading in animals from Kansas City (MO) around 1914. The range of animals at the their disposal included big game, birds, reptiles and many of the documents concern the prospect of importing reindeer from Alaska. The material is held in a presentation album and includes the certificate of incorporation in Wilmington, Delaware, May 13, 1929, as well as the by-laws of the corporation, minutes of the first meeting, the proposal for Los Angeles Zoological Garden and Jungle Studio and a balance sheet. At this stage the company had total assets of $57,700, & liabilities of $625,388.46; an enumeration of the various animals in inventory including wildebeest, sables, leopard, lynx, Rhodesian baboons, bushbaby, and a large aardvark. Of real interest are the plans for the park, including artist's impressions, which would be furnished with circus attractions, "Monkey Island", jungle setting for motion pictures, and an acknowledgment that "before the introduction of the motion picture industry, the art of showmanship was not quite so highly developed as it is today..." In fact, one of the first pictures they supplied animals for was - appropriately enough - Trader Horn, which was nominated for the 1931 Academy Award for Best Picture. On a more practical level, there is a "Descriptive Classification of Principal Commercial Wild Animals" which lists 340 different animals in some details. There is also an account of hunting wild animals in East Africa as well as a section on animals that have been trained to hunt by man. Furthermore there is also much correspondence which provides much insight into the game industry, its clients and the prospects for its future. Horne's venture subsequently became known as the World Jungle Compound, in Thousand Oaks, California, eventually being acquired by 20th Century Fox studios. This archive is a record of a new phase of the entertainment industry.
