        The Vicar of Wakefield

      David McKay, New York 1929 - New York, David McKay, 1929. Full vellum with gilt titles, spine titles, borders and spine decoration. Top edge gilt. Deckled edges. Decorative endpapers. 232 pp. No. 160 of 200 copies of the American Edition. LIMITED, NUMBERED AND BOLDLY SIGNED BY ILLUSTRATOR ARTHUR RACKHAM. The total number of this deluxe illustrated edition was 775 of which 200 were for America, making this American edition the scarcer of the two. Illustrated with 12 full mounted color plates. Also many in text line drawings. This copy is very sound and complete, generally very bright, white, clean pages, of which approximately 1/3 remain unopened. The frontispiece is lightly foxed at margins as are the following five illustrations, but the frontispiece (see photos) is clearly the more foxed and each following illustration shows less and less marginal foxing. The remaining 6 illustrations are unfoxed, and all images are unaffected by the marginal foxing. (The photos show the frontispiece and the first unfoxed page). There is also foxing to the first few pages, (through the limitation page) and the last two pages. Otherwise, as noted above, the interior text pages are uniformly bright, white, clean, fresh and unblemished. The boards are lightly to moderately soiled/darkened, with much which could be removed with careful use of an eraser. Overall a very good copy with excellent illustrations for those who are charmed by the singular, distinctive style of line and color which makes Arthur Rackham one of the great book illustrators of the modern era.

        Gesammelte Werke / Musarionausgabe G A N Z L E D E R - L U X U S A U S G A B E,

      München Musarion Verlag, 1929 - Vollständige Ausgabe in den originalen Verlags-Luxuseinbänden: 23 sehr aufwendig hergestellte Handeinbände (schwarzes geglättetes Kalbsleder / Ganzleder / Leder im Format 17,5 x 24,5 cm) mit Kopfgoldschnitt, Rückentitel auf zwei Titelschildern, Rückendekoration und Dekoration jeweils beider Deckel in aufwendiger Linien-Handvergoldung, Stehkanten- sowie Innenkantenvergoldung, Goldkopfschnitt. 21 Textbände und zwei Registerbände, mit vier Porträts und sieben (davon eines gefaltet) zumeist mehrseitigen Fakisimiles. Erste, im Auftrag von Elisabeth Förster-Nietzsche veranstaltete Werkausgabe, enthaltend unter anderem auch bis dahin unveröffentlichte Jugendschriften, herausgegeben von Dr.Richard Oehler, Max Oehler und Dr.Friedrich Chr.Würzbach. - Insgesamt sind 1.600 Exemplare dedruckt worden, davon 185 in Ganzpergament, jedoch nur fünfzehn Exemplaren in Ganzleder und auf Japan-Velin-Papier, gebunden von A.Köllner/Leipzig, dieses Exemplar mit der Nummer 15. Vorsätze teilweise minimal stockfleckig. Insgesamt wohlerhaltenes und sehr ansehnliches Exemplar, ledigleich bei einigen Bänden kleine Kratzer im Leder, Bünde teilweise beschabt. - Kostbarste Version dieser Monumentalausgabe, die seinerzeit auch als Broschur, in Halbleder und in Ganzpergament lieferbar war. - Wahrscheinlich war es eine dieser Ganzlederausgaben Nr.1 ff, welche Benito Mussolini im zweiten Weltkrieg von Adolf Hitler als Staatsgeschenk des Großdeutschen Reiches erhielt; in der Kunstbuchbinderei Frieda Thiersch/München arbeitete ein Buchbindermeister volle zwei Jahre daran, für diese - ohnehin schon prachtvolle Ausgabe - noch wesentlich aufwendigere Einbände zu schaffen: es sollte dem Duce offensichtlich eine ganz besonders große Freude bereitet werden.(vgl. Fritz Krinitz, Frieda Thiersch und ihre Handbuchbinderei, Stuttgart 1968; dort ist das Führergeschenk als Abbildung 10 zu sehen) - "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Bei Dünndruckpapier werden die Lagen zum Heften leicht vorgeritzt. Ein Einsägen oder gar Einraspeln der Bünde findet nicht statt. Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Zum Kapital wird kein schlappes maschinengewebtes Bändchen verwendet, sondern das Kapital wird von Hand mit dem Buchblock umstochen, gibt dadurch dem Rücken einen festen Abschluß und bietet zugleich dem späteren Ledereinschlag ("Häubchen") die Unterlage. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazu passendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können." Aus einem alten Prospekt von Richard Hönn /München Sprache: de [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Bethlen Gabor Orszagalkoto Politikaja - Masodik Kiadas

      Patria Irodalmi Vallalat es Nyomdai Resv.-Tars, Budapest 1929 - 115 pages (complete). In Hungarian throughout. A very good copy of this VERY RARE book that is central to the story of Hungarian nationalism. Makkai's book, written in 1914, was picked up during the inter-war period as an essential text to the expression of Hungarian-Transylvanian nationalism. Bethlen Gabor, one time king of Hungary and Prince of Transylvania, led anti-Habsburg uprisings and revolts during the seventeeth century. His enlightened autocracy left an indelible trace upon his country (for example he instituted the right of a serf's children to education). This rare copy of Makkai (an historian who died in Cluj (in what is now Romania and ironically a central point to the modern Romanian revolution) in 1923 is is smartly rebound in half leather and board. The book has a thick, sensitively affixed, clear plastic protective cover. The cover beneath has some wear to the extremities and head and foot of the spine. Nonetheless, the cover and the binding are secure, sure and very healthy. Marbled frontis and end papers. The frontis illustration protection sheet is unfoxed and silky. The initial pages have mild marking. The pages are firm, thick, very confident, tidy, neat and smart. The end pages have rebinding repair along the guttering. The thickly stitched binding is very secure and friendly. A RARE IMPORTANT book. fk [Attributes: Hard Cover]

"Whatever may be said of life, it remains that, in art, desire may be feeble or insufficient, but it can never be wrong; it is the intellect that makes mistakes". Next to the sentence "Being a Catholic I naturally accepted the Catholic faith - as one intending to go to Peterborough naturally takes the train there" Gill has written "Why Peterboro'? because it was in the train to Peterboro' that this part of this preface was written. EG". The list of engravings has a number of annotations and corrections, inserting 6 engravings not mentioned into the list, expanding on descriptions and changing some sizes and titles.

        The Middle Parts of Fortune Somme & Ancre, 1916

      London: The Piazza Press issued to subscribers by Peter Davies, Ltd.,, 1929. 2 volumes, octavo. Original brown buckram, titles gilt to spines with gilt rules, top edges gilt, others uncut, marbled endpapers. A fine set. First edition, the unexpurgated limited edition, number 334 of 520 copies. The book was published in this limited edition in 1929, garnering informed praise and intemperate notoriety in close to equal measure, and an expurgated edition, under the title Her Privates We (taken from the line in Shakespeare's Hamlet immediately following "The Middle Parts of Fortune"), was published the following year. However Manning never achieved fame and it was probably not until the re-issue of the full text in 1977 that the novel received the recognition that it deserved. Manning died of pneumonia at a nursing home in Hampstead in 1935. An excellent set of a book perceived on publication as one of the most powerfully personal visions of the Great War. In Men at War Hemingway described it as "The finest and noblest book of men in war that I have ever read. I read it once each year to remember how things really were so that I will never lie to myself nor to anyone else about them," and T. E. Lawrence remarked that "No praise could be too sheer for this book … it justifies every heat of praise.

        A Farewell To Arms

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1929. First EditionSigned Limited Edition. . Very near fine in 1/4 vellum and paper covered boards with vellum corners and with a black leather label on the spine stamped with gilt text. A small quarto measuring 9" by 6" with two small, faint stains on the vellum spine and a number of pages torn in the margins due to rough opening. These tears have been professionally repaired with Japanese tissue with no tears impacting on the printed text of any pages. Without a dust jacket as issued; however, this volume is contained within a restored, paper covered slip-case with an underlying, archival, mat-board structure. The original orange, printed, paper title block with the corresponding copy number is in place with no damage or wear. Some of the original scotch tape which was employed by the previous owner to hold the slip-case together still remains. Gaps in the edges, joints and corners have been filled with papie mache and colored to match the original motif of the case. This is one of only five hundred ten copies numbered and signed by the author. This copy is numbered 305 on the limitation page just above Hemingway's signature. 355 pages of text. Considered by many to be Hemingway's break-through novel which allowed him to achieve popular recognition while still a young man. A previous owner has attached to the limitation page a 1 1/4" by 4 1/2" magazine cut-out announcing the book's publication with the following review: "It is the work of a mature writer; a biting commentary on the effect of war on all it touches; a breathlessly beautiful love story and a vivid picture of warfare on the Italian front." Also, laid-in at the front of the book is a full page article on "Life with Papa at La Vigia" from the September 10, 1966 edition of the Chicago Daily News. Other than the pasted in review, the laid-in newspaper article and the page damage, there is no other indication of prior ownership such as names, dates or book plates. This was the only signed, limited edition done by Hemingway. (Hanneman, 8B)
