        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)

        Compendium Maleficarum - Collected in 3 Books from many Sources by Brother Francesco Maria Guazzo of the order of S. Ambrose ad nemus: showing the iniquitous and execrable operations of witches against the human race, and the divine ... (Truncated)

      John Rodker, London, 1929, Hardcover, Book Condition: Good, Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket, Limited EditionFull Book Title: Compendium Maleficarum - Collected in 3 Books from many Sources by Brother Francesco Maria Guazzo of the order of S. Ambrose ad nemus: showing the iniquitous and execrable operations of witches against the human race, and the divine remedies by which they may be frustrated206 pages (complete). John Rodker was a modernist writer, artist and publisher. He founded, in the 1920s, after working on the second edition of "Ulysses" in Paris, the Casanova society for the publication of limited editions of obscure modern novelists. He continued publishing in London, under his name, limited edition books about the occult and that ilk, of which this book is one. This copy is numbered 796 of 1275. The "Compendium Maleficarum" is here, edited, by the Rev. Montague Summers, a Catholic priest very well known for his writings and works on witches, demonology and vampires. He translated for the first time in English the 'witch-hunters handbook', the "Malleus Maleficarum". Summers was much in favour of this volume about witches, their poisons and spells. In his introduction he calls it: ".of incalculable worth." and ". most salutary and excellent treatise." The Catholic Church was most embarrassed by his enthusiasms here demonstrated and felt obliged to apologise. This is a special edition of this fascinating volume. The cloth cover has wear to the edges and spine. There are shallow shelf depressions. The covers are slightly stained. Inside, the handcrafted paper is in excellent condition. The contents are sure, clear, firm, clean, pleasing and neat. fk Quantity Available: 1. Category: Occult; Inventory No: amqb.

        Antlitz Der Zeit: Sechzig Aufnahmen Deutscher Menschen Des 20. Jahrhunderts

      Munich: Transmare Verlag/Kurt Wolff Verlag, 1929. The uncommon 1929 1st edition of this remarkable August Sander highspot in portrait photography. 60 crisp black-and-white studies, skillful and revealing and very, very moving. Such was the power of this unassuming collection that when the Third Reich came to power in 1933, they set their sites on this book, destroying the original plates and puttting a halt to its publication. This copy, while it's seen some wear to the panels, has maintained its basic soundness. The binding remains sturdy, the plates clean and unmarked. Internally, this is a superior copy, with very light soiling to the preliminaries and, most significantly, no markings or flaws of any kind to the plates. The front panel, on the other hand, shows significant wear --specifically, water damage (a light brown staining) covering almost half of the yellow cloth. The staining is undeniable and (I believe) irreversible but, oddly, blends in with the mustard-yellow cloth and doesn't detract too dramatically from the book's appearance. A perfectly serviceable copy, solidly (and conservatively) a G+. Quarto, 15 pg. preface by the formidable Alfred Doblin (of "Berlin Alexanderplatz") plus the 60 plates. . First Edition. Cloth. Good.

        A Room of One’s Own

      London: Published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press, 1929 First English edition, first printing. One of 3,040 copies. Publisher's cinnamon cloth, lettered in gilt; in the original pictorial pale pink dust jacket designed by Vanessa Bell, with an illustration to the front panel in navy blue. Book fine; unclipped dust jacket, with some light wear and minor nicks to the spine ends, light toning to the spine, minor splits to the hinges at the spine ends, front flap fold split at the bottom 2/3, bright and clean panels. Overall, a near fine copy in an unusually clean and fresh dust jacket. Housed in a custom navy clamshell box. Kirkpatrick A12b. Woolmer 215b. A Room of One's Own is an extended feminist essay based on a series of lectures Woolf gave at the women's colleges of Cambridge University in October 1928. Specifically, Woolf addresses women's role in and relationship to literature, paying particular attention to how women's sociopolitical status affects their relationship to writing fiction; the essay's title refers to her belief that "a woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction." Woolf traces the history of women's writing and uses the character Judith Shakespeare, the fictional sister of William Shakespeare, to illustrate limitations of a patriarchal society on developing women's talents in the arts. Notably, Woolf also addresses the role women's sexuality plays in their writing and even invokes lesbianism, a theme which she hints at in her novels but here addresses directly. This first English edition of A Room of One's Own was preceded only by a signed limited edition of 600 copies that was published only a few days prior.. Illus. by Bell, Vanessa. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        Sein und Zeit (Being and Time).

      Max Niemeyer, Halle 1929 - Half-title + TP + Dedication page + TP + [VII]-XI + Inhalt + [1]-438 + 1 leaf with printer information on verso Octavo. Second Edition.The Uncommon Second Edition of One of the Most Influential Philosophical Books of the 20th Century.Arguably, one of the most influential philosophical books of the 20th century, this is an attempt to come to grips with the notion of Being. In Heidegger's view this was the fundamental philosophical question, but one which has been submerged beneath the jargon of western metaphysics as it drifted from its original Greek sources. The book is potent with the sense of a "new "start", a hope with which it imbued even the darkest of its existentialist derivatives. Published two years after the first edition, this copy looks identical to the 1927 printing, but for the date on the title page. In original publisher's tan cloth with dark brown lettering to the front cover and a brown label with gilt lettering to the spine. Several scattered spots to the front cover. The book is splitting - but completely firm - just between the half title and title page. Otherwise, a clean, solid and thoroughly respectable copy of this important book.
