        Three Things

      London: Faber and Faber 1929 - Illustrated by Gilbert Spencer. Limited edition of 500 numbered copies. Signed by Yeats. Publisher's light blue paper boards, lettered in gilt. 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. Overall, a presentable copy. Wade 166. Three Things is a poem that is published as No. 18 in Faber's Ariel Poems, a series of 38 pamphlets published from 1927-1931. 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]

        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 within double panel, top edges gilt, others uncut, marbled endpapers. Spines a little rolled, light rubbing to ends and corners, nice sound copies in very good condition. First edition, the unexpurgated limited edition, number 187 of 525 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. But 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 copy 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." The original unexpurgated form of a WW1 classic.

        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.

        Eigenh. Brief mit Unterschrift.

      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.
