        Look Homeward, Angel

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons. 1929. First. First edition. Spine lettering worn but readable, a very good copy in worn, good only first issue dustwrapper (with the Wolfe portrait on the rear panel) lacking the bottom couple inches of the spine, with several other modest chips and tears, and several internal tape repairs. This copy is Inscribed by the author: "To Fidelia E. Stark with warmest thanks. Thomas Wolfe Oct 30, 1929." Also laid in is a four-page carbon manuscript (folded, small breaks at the folds, else near fine), unsigned, but almost certainly by Maxwell Perkins, dated April 17, 1929 entitled "Selling Points: Look Homeward, Angel by Thomas Wolfe." The "Selling Points," in the third person, recounts the editorial process in detail, and enumerates the literary wonderment of the book. A modern classic, the author's first book, and generally considered his major achievement, a breathtaking autobiographical novel. An inscribed copy, with an intriguing manuscript account of the birth of the novel. .

        Venus Sardonica -- 1/50 copies

      np: Privately Printed (Alex Field?). c. 1929. Limited ed. Loose in Folder. Fine. Number 10 of only 50 copies for presentation, signed by Blaine. c. 1929. First Edition. Suite of 50 plates, one of which is an original drawing. Housed in a red cloth folder. Plates measure 9 inches wide x 12 inches tall. Contents FINE. Folder with mild edgewear and discoloration. According to Roland Trenary, author of the book Mahlon Blaine: One-Eyed Visionary, ''In 1929 Blaine decided to publish a folio of his sly and clever drawings that combined fantasy and sexuality... 50 extravaganzas each depicting one or more uniquely fantastic part-human / part-creature characters involved in 50 sorts and degrees of sexual activity... one of each of the fifty original drawings was put into a red folder along with prints of the other 49... There was no title page, no limitation page, no typography at all. How much did these sell for originally? Reportedly a hundred dollars per set. World renowned erotica expert Gershon Legman stated in 1982 that Venus Sardonica was the high point of erotica publishing in America.'' Our copy actually has a limitation page but we are unable to determine which of the 50 plates is the original drawing. We are including a copy of Trenary's book with this item as well.

      o. O., 27. XI. 1929. - 2 Seiten. 4to. An „Alexej Georgiewitsch" Jawlensky: „Verzeihen Sie mir, dass ich Ihnen in Eile schreibe: Wir fahren für 2-3 Tage nach Berlin und ich muss noch Einiges vor der Abfahrt zu Ende führen. Wir - die hiesigen 3 Blauen - haben in Bezog auf Rose wie folgt beschlossen: 20% vom Preis ablassen, damit sie den Nettopreis erhält. Wenn sich danach eine mehr oder weniger erhebliche Differenz zur Schuld herausstellt, Rose darauf hinweisen und diese Differenz fordern. Bei mir und Klee erwies sich diese Differenz als gering (weniger als 100,- M) und wir geben die Bilder Rose ohne Zuschlag ab. Ich habe bereits angeordnet, dass mein Gemälde an ihn abgeht. Klee ist auch damit beschäftigt. Überhaupt ist es angenehm, diese Sache zu beenden. Wir haben uns auch so überlegt, dass unsere Preise inzwischen gestiegen sind und deshalb die aufgeschlagenen % keinen Unterschied bedeuten [ ]" – Die „Blauen" beziehen sich auf die im Jahre 1924 gegründete Ausstellungsgemeinschaft „Die Blaue Vier", der neben Kandinsky, Paul Klee u. Lyonel Feininger, sie waren seinerzeit alle am Bauhaus Dessau, auch Jawlensky angehörte. – Die Namen Rose u. Klee sowie das Wort „Nettopreis" in deutscher Schreibschrift. - Gefaltet u. am äußersten rechten Rand schwach gebräunt sowie mit winzigem Fleck. – Gelocht. – Beiliegend Übersetzungen in Deutsch u.

      1929. London: Published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press, 1929. Original cinnamon-colored cloth, with dust jacket. First Trade Edition (published simultaneously with the American trade edition) -- which consisted of 3,040 copies. This is Virginia Woolf's extended essay, based on a series of lectures she gave, on various subjects important to women writers -- such as women's access to education, access to adequate funds while writing, and how to write about lesbianism discreetly enough to avoid obscenity trials. "A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction.~This volume is in fine condition, with the spine gilt still bright; the decorative dust jacket, designed by the author's sister Vanessa Bell, is very good-plus (light wear at the spine ends, a few short splits, a faint damp-mark on one joint -- but quite clean, and free of repairs or restoration).

        A Farewell To Arms

      First Edition by Charles Scribner's Sons, New York: 1929. 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)

      Arthur H Stockwell, London, 1929. First Edition. Hardcover. Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. Signed by Author. Catherine Armsmith aka Catherine Anthony Clark 1892-1977, was born in London and emigrated to Canada in 1914. In 1919 she married Leonard Clark and settled in the Kootenay Mountains of British Columbia. According to ‘CANADIAN CHILDREN'S BOOKS 1799-1939 in the Special Collections and University Archives Division, The University of British Columbia Library’& A BIBLIOGRAPHICAL CATALOGUE compiled by SHEILA A. EGOFF ‘Fairy tales of Kootenay is probably her first book, and in its setting heralds the background and the Canadian mythic figures that made Clark the first important fantasist in Canada’ Here we find Indian spirits and British Columbia's Ogopogo – a creature akin to Scotland’s Loch Ness Monster. Other stories deal with a mermaid, a dragon, a gnome and other figures common in British fantasy. As far as we can tell this book was the only one to be published under the Armsmith pseudonym –possibly her maiden name-. Researching her background we found that apparently she began writing for ‘The Prospector’, the community newspaper in Nelson, British Columbia. Clark’s later works, for which she became famous include: The Sun Horse (1951), winner of the Canadian Association of Children's Librarians bronze medal in 1952, The One-Winged Dragon (1955), The Silver Man (1958), The Diamond Feather; or The Door in the Mountain: A Magic Tale for Children (1962), The Hunter and the Medicine Man (1966) and The Man with the Yellow Eyes (1963). Contents: The Spirit of Kootenay; The Whistling Pine; The Mother-of-Pearl Child; The Gnome in Chains; The Phantom Pirates; The Indian Necklace; The Winged Horses; The Dragon; The Magic Umbrella. Book - [SEE SCANS] - in Very Good blue boards with gilt lettering - light marking to the boards, some sunning to the spine, light bumping to the extreme corners and extreme ends of the spine. Contents, some browning to the occasional page and to the extreme page edges, the illustration opposite page 53 has light marking to the extreme verso edges [SEE SCAN], there is a crease to the rear free end paper otherwise the contents clean and tightly bound. Few copies of this important early example of Clark’s work exist, this one is enhanced by being a copy the author gave or intended to give to the great British author G.K. Chesterton. The front free endpaper bears the inscription: ‘To Gilbert K. Chesterton Esq from C. Armsmith Clark’& Size: 7.5 inches tall by 5 inches. 80 pages. Illustrated with 6 full page black and white line drawings. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 201-750 grams. Category: Myths, Legends & Folklore; Signed by Author. Inventory No: 5746..

        The Poet and The Lunatics. Episodes in The Life of Gabriel Gale

      London, Cassell. 1929, 1929. First Edition. 8vo. Near fine copy in publisher's black ribbed cloth, titled in bright gilt to the spine. Slightly bumped at the head of the spine. Dustwrapper worn at head and tail of spine with trifling loss, a little chipped to the extremties, bright and unfaded, there is a little darkening to the spine chiefly noticeable from the result of the removal of a label at the base of the spine that has resulted in a noticeably cleaner spot. Light spotting to page edges, internally clean. Gabriel Gale is an eccentric poet. His madness is the madness of insight and he uses this gift to solve or prevent crimes committed by madmen. Chesterton ably illustrates his own premise that lunacy and sanity may just be a point of view... Bleiler; Checklist of Fantastic Literature [281]. Book Collector No.273, p34.
