        Good-Bye To All That: an autobiography

      Cape, 1929. 1st edition. Hardcover. True first printing with the original Siegfried Sassoon poem, or verse letter, in full on pp 341-3, and the piece on page 290 which alludes to Sassoon's mother's attempts to communicate with the spirit of her dead son, Siegfried's younger brother Hamo. Outraged that he had not given permission for their inclusion, Sassoon insisted that these passages were immediately removed, and therefore asterisks appear in subsequent copies, and very few copies exist of this original issue. Graves and Sassoon were never friends again. The original salmon cloth boards are in fine condition, a minor bump at the heel of the spine, else entirely unmarked. The pages and endpapers are completely free of foxing. The original dustwrapper is not price-clipped, is in very good condition, with minor professional repairs at front fold and head of spine. In sum, an excellent example of Graves's classic memoir of the First World War. Included is a 1929 typed letter from noted New York bookdealer, James F. Drake, to a customer in which he says, 'I am sorry I cannot supply a copy of Good-bye to All That, first issue. As you probably know, the book was suppressed on account of the war poem by Sassoon, etc, and very, very few copies got into circulation. Unfortunately, I did not get any'. Also included are black-and-white photographic reproductions of (a) the first page, overlaid on the final page, of Sassoon's suppressed poem, in Graves's hand, which he says at the top is a copy 'in case I lost the original', dated 24.7.18, and (b) two pages, plus the title page, showing the annotations made by Edmund Blunden, with Sassoon's help, to a copy of Graves's book, pursuant to their irritation with their perceived inaccuracies and omissions in Graves's wartime account (they intended to send their annotated copy to the British Museum - but never actually did so). These reproductions come from Lew David Feldman's record of the sale of Sassoon items in 1975. In the printed edition of Good-Bye To All That, Graves omitted nine lines, including the final six, of Sassoon's poem.

        A Farewell To Arms

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons 1929 - First edition, first printing. Publisher's black cloth, gilt labels with black lettering to the front board and spine. About near fine, with some light rubbing to the extremities, bright spine with a slight lean, light rubbing to the board and the front title label, erased ownership inscription to the front pastedown, part of a bookseller's plate to the front free endpaper, otherwise bright and clean interior. Overall, a sturdy and attractive copy. Set in Italy during World War I, A Farewell to Arms tells the story of a romance between the protagonist Frederic Henry, an American serving as a lieutenant in the Italian ambulance corps, and Catherine Barkley, a British nurse tending to wounded soldiers. Widely considered one of the best novels to come from the war, the novel is, as the dust jacket proclaims, "the very essence of beauty as twisted and made tragic by war" that "expresses the innermost nature of war." Unlike many of the other war novels by contemporary writers, A Farwell to Arms addresses not only the aftermath of WWI but the events of the war itself and specifically the Italian Front around the Battle of Caporetto of Autumn 1917. Accordingly, it stood out amongst the war novels, becoming Hemingway's first best-seller and establishing him as a premier American writer. Interestingly, in his 1958 interview with The Paris Review, Hemingway famously remarked, "I rewrote the ending to Farewell to Arms, the last page of it, thirty-nine times before I was satisfied."

      [1929]. Folio (350 x 272 mm). 1 bifolium. 3, [i] (blank) pp. Notated in black ink on pre-printed 20-staff paper. Caption titles: "N 1." and "N 2. (Oberek)." Dedication to upper left corner of first page: "a Albert Roussel." Asterisk to title referring to autograph footnote: "Extraits du 'Recueil de Mazurkas (1918-1928)' "; autograph directive for engraver to left of footnote: "en sous-titre." Autograph directive for engraver to lower right corner of first page: "en bas: Avec l'autorisation des Editions Max Eschig, 48 rue de Rome, Paris." Autograph note to left margin of first page: "pour le Supplement de la 'Revue Musicale' (No contenant l'article de R. Petit sur A. Tansman)." Occasional autograph notational corrections in pencil to no. 2. Engraver's markup in pencil. Handstamp to upper right corner of first page: "Gravé." Annotation, "Revue musicale" in pencil to left of title in an unknown hand. Three horizontal creases; small ink stain to left margin and small rust mark to upper edge of first page; stain to final blank page. . Engraver's copy for the separate edition of these two mazurkas published as a supplement to Revue musicale 10, issue 4-5 (1929), in which R. Petit published his article "Alexandre Tansman" (op. cit., pp. 46–54). The entire "Recueil de Mazurkas (1918-1928)," later counted as "1er recueil" (three more followed), was published by Max Eschig, Paris, in 1929. The present mazurka no. 1 is counted "no. 6" in the entire collection; the present no. 2 (Oberek) is counted "no. 1." "Alexandre Tansman was a French composer and pianist of Polish birth... Disappointed with his reception in Poland, he moved to Paris, giving a début recital in February 1920. Soon after his arrival, he became friendly with Stravinsky and Ravel, both of whom encouraged and advised him... Acquainted with many leading musical figures in Paris during these years, Tansman was part of the circle of foreign musicians, known as the Ecole de Paris, that included Martin , Alexander Tcherepnin, Conrad Beck and Marcel Mihalovici. While his music retained many distinctively Polish features, such as Mazurka rhythms and Polish folk melodies, and while he wrote collections of Polonaises, Nocturnes, Impromptus, Waltzes and other Chopinesque miniatures, neo-classical traits appear in works [from about 1925]... Although he never completely abandoned a diatonic framework, critics of the 1920s and 30s described his harmony at times as Scriabinesque and atonal... Tansman was quick to achieve international success... He settled in Los Angeles in 1941 where he became acquainted with Schoenberg, renewed friendships with other European émigrés, including Milhaud and Stravinsky, and composed a number of film scores. He returned to Paris in 1946." Caroline Rae in Grove M.O.

His critical reputation was in eclipse from the time of his death until Michael Sadleir and David Cecil championed his work - yet his books have always been read.

"It has been said that in Ireland the inevitable never happens, and the impossible invariably occurs."Edith ?none Somerville (1858-1949), with her cousin Violet Martin (1862-1915), embarked on a notable women's literary collaboration and wrote under the name of Somerville & Ross. Their series of admirable tales of Irish life, some humorous, some tragic, captures the flavor of rural life and everywhere demonstrates their sensitivity to distinctively Irish turns of phrase. Among their best-loved stories are the three books narrating incidents in the life of Major Sinclair Yeates, Resident Magistrate at Skebawn. Published between 1899 and 1915, the Irish R.M. stories are filled with humor, sport, and deftly observed, colorful character sketches. Somerville's cousin died suddenly in 1915; Somerville participated in a number of seances with medium Jem Barlow in 1916, and by the end of 1916, Somerville had resumed writing. She thereafter maintained that she was in constant communication with Violet's spirit. Somerville was also an accomplished illustrator, and in the late 1920s Eugene V. Connett, 3d, proprietor of the Derrydale Press, persuaded her to produce these illustrations from the Irish R.M. books. The limitation states 50 sets, but perhaps only 30 sets were in fact colored and signed.Plate I: A CONSPIRACY OF SILENCE. "Music, even, was not wanting to our progress, and old Flynn, bleating shrilly upon his horn to the hounds below, became idyllic." From Further Experiences of an Irish R.M. Plate II: OCCASIONAL LICENCES. "'Every one'll say I told Slipper to open the gate', said Flurry, grinning." An amusing steeplechase from Some Experiences of an Irish R.M.Plate III: PUT DOWN ONE AND CARRY TWO. "I seemed to myself merely an imbecile, sitting in the heavy rain, staring at a stone wall." From In Mr. Knox's Country. Plate IV: THE COMTE DE PRALINES. "The Comte de Pralines, standing knee-deep in baying hounds ? Miss McCrory squealed 'Yoicks'!" From In Mr. Knox's Country. PRODUCED IN A VERY SMALL LIMITATION, THIS IS ONE OF THE RAREST OF THE DERRYDALE PRESS SPORTING PRINTS SERIES. Ordeman pp. 49-50 "now among the most highly valued of the Derrydale prints"; Hudson p. 64 1 vols. Plate size 13-1/4 x 17 inches [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Aboriginals and Half-Castes of Central Australia and North Australia

      Victoria: H.J. Green, Government Printer, 1929. Foolscap folio, 63 pp. of which 19 pages are black & white plates (two photographs to a page), a map and a diagram of the 'Proposed Half Caste Home Aboriginal Compound, Darwin N.T.', very good in recent cloth, leather spine label. With numerous photographic illustrations. Bleakley's influential report to government on the life of Aborigines in northern and central Australia. Bleakley's proposal was the main political impetus for the creation of a series of reserves in the north, most particularly in Arnhem Land, as well as Bathurst, Melville and Wessel Islands. Importantly, Bleakley was against most of the restrictive inter-marriage policies then being considered, a position which he continued to promote for many years to come. In the late 1930s he commented that it 'is essential, first of all, to realize that we have no right to attempt to destroy their national life. Like ourselves, they are entitled to retain their racial entity and racial pride.'With a suite of fascinating photographs of conditions in the regions under review.

      1929. Original photograph album. Full Leather. Very Good. This album contains more than 240 original photographs, mostly 4.25" x 2.5" and several at 5" x 7". The images are fixed with photo-corners to heavy black stock, and many have captions in white below the images. A leaf at the front, printed and accomplished by hand, identifies the photographer as Mrs. Pearl Davis Reynolds, although the photographs of her were taken by another. She entered the Canal Zone via the Pacific Ocean on 5 October 1929, apparently aboard a US Army Transport. The album is bound in string-tied leather over flexible boards with oil-painted tropical foliage on the cover, and an inset picture of Culebra Cut rendered on silk. The final two leaves are detached, otherwise in sound condition. 8" x 11" Pearl Davis Reynolds was born on 1 August 1913, died on 10 October 1998, and is buried at Fort Gibson National Cemetery in Oklahoma. Her Panama Canal Zone adventure seems to have been as the wife (or companion) of a US Marine Corps non-commissioned officer (named Miles) stationed there. Pearl's album includes two pages of autographs and comments made by Canal Zone friends. In the photographs, she appears as a tall, thin woman, usually dressed in jungle outfits. Seen in the photographs are Pearl, Miles, friends, family pets, Canal Zone sites and structures, forts, beaches, battleships, &c., &c. Here are some of the captions: Quarters #47-A; Miles; Pearl; Picnic; At Amador; Sherman Parade; In the Jungles; A-A gun, Fort San Lorenzo; Landing Field; Balloon Hanger; Fort Amador; Panama City; Ironad Dam; Fort DeLesseps; Fleet Maneuvers; USAT St. Mihiel; The Los Angeles (airplane); her four kids; Headquarters Hospital; 14" Disappearing Rifle; birdseye view of naval station; Chagres River; New Devil's Beach; Shimmy Beach; Gatum Lake; Panama Bay Battle Fleet; San Juan; Leaving Porto Rica; USAT Chateau Thierry; &c.
