Each pamphlet paired an author's single poem with illustrations by a selected artist. "Three Things" is an eerie exploration of the "three dear things that women know;" specifically, Yeats alludes to children, lovers, and her "rightful man." This volume is illustrated with two images by renowned English artist Gilbert Spencer, who recorded his first encounter with Yeats in his autobiography Memoirs of a Painter: "At that time I had scarcely read any poetry, but did not find listening to W. B. Yeats difficult at all, easy in fact; all he needed was the shape of his listeners in his line of vision, though visionary he most certainly was.". Illus. by Spencer, Gilbert. Signed by Author. Limited. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        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; in original pictorial dust jacket with artwork by Cleon. Fine and bright book, with just some light offsetting to the free endpapers; unclipped dust jacket, with faint creasing and wear to spine ends, very light toning and faint rubbing to the spine, faint creasing to the bottom of the rear panel, tiny closed tear to the bottom edge of the otherwise fresh front panel, else fine. Overall, a bright and fresh copy, free of any repairs or restoration. Housed in a custom black slipcase with morocco spine and matching chemise. 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, The Sun Also Rises 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.". 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        Scientific American November and December 1929 Volume 141 Numbers 5 and 6

      New York Scientific American Publishing Company 1929. An example of advertising for the ages, possibly part of a campaign engineered by the infamous Edward L. Bernays. Back page of issue number 5 is a color Lucky Strike cigarette advertisement which appears beneath the caption "An Ancient Prejudice has been removed." Center of the ad features a large clenched fist breaking a heavy chain. Upon the cuff of the hand is written "American Intelligence." Top left illustration shows a paranoid bearded miser counting his gold by candlelight. Top right illustration shows a wealthy establishment couple beside a handsome security guard inside a palatial bank. Text beneath the miser reads "Hoarding gold with the fanatical zeal of the miser has vanished. American Intelligence sponsors thousands of banking institutions to which the individual (i.e. the establishment couple) safely entrusts his wealth. *Please note the date of this magazine, November 1929*. This prestigious American publication was probably printed in the latter days of October 1929 ... just as the *Great Crash* occurred... and the *Great Depression* ensued... causing countless financial institutions to go under... taking countless individual fortunes with them. A package of Lucky Strikes appears in lower left corner while text in lower right corner reads "Toasting Did It - Gone is that ancient prejudice against cigarettes - progress has been made. We removed the prejudice against cigarettes when we removed harmful corrosive acrids (pungent irritants) from the tobaccos. Thus "Toasting" has destroyed that ancient prejudice against cigarette smoking by men and by women." As the banks soon proved fallible, what are the implications for cigarette smoking? A truly stunning work which should not be forgotten. We include the subsequent December 1929 issue as its back cover is graced with a very similar ad, only now the advertiser has made a timely change from the gold/banking theme to one comparing science in the days of the inquisition to the science supporting contemporary thriving metropolii. Condition: November back cover has average wear with three inch crease to lower corner. December back cover has several small tears and average soiling. December spine in poor condition. Truly unique and important pieces of Americana, these pieces will be of great interest to advertising historians, organizations opposed to tobacco use, and organizations promoting investment in precious metals.

      [New York]: [Jonathan Cape & Harrison Smith], [1929]. A signed block print of one of the images from 'Gods' Man'. The printed on Japanese, the image measures 10 cm x 10 cm (same as the book). Signed in pencil by Ward under the image in the right corner. The image (no.116) is of the nameless artist and his wife looking skyward. The image is in fine condition. Presumably printed in a miniscule print run as a keepsake from the author and publisher. Gods' Man was the first of Ward's six wordless novels.

About very good, with some light rubbing to the extremities, chipping and minor loss to the spine as usual, light toning to the spine and board edges, minor soiling, former owner's bookplate to the front pastedown, former owner's pencil signature to the front free endpaper, otherwise bright and clean interior.

Each pamphlet paired an author's single poem with illustrations by a selected artist. "Three Things" is an eerie exploration of the "three dear things that women know;" specifically, Yeats alludes to children, lovers, and her "rightful man." This volume is illustrated with two images by renowned English artist Gilbert Spencer, who recorded his first encounter with Yeats in his autobiography Memoirs of a Painter: "At that time I had scarcely read any poetry, but did not find listening to W. B. Yeats difficult at all, easy in fact; all he needed was the shape of his listeners in his line of vision, though visionary he most certainly was." [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
