        The Sound and the Fury

      New York: Jonathan Cape and Harrison Smith 1929 - New York: Jonathan Cape and Harrison Smith, 1929. First edition, first printing. Publisher's quarter cream cloth, lettered in black, black and white patterned paper-covered boards, matching black and white coated endpapers, top edge stained black, fore edge untrimmed; lacking the original dust jacket. A very good copy with some wear and toning to extremities, minor tearing to cloth at spine ends, light toning to page edges, and offsetting to pp. 370-371 from something laid in that has since been removed, contemporary ownership signature to front pastedown. An attractive copy. From the library of Pulitzer Prize winning author Kenneth Silverman. The Sound and the Fury is Faulkner's fourth novel and features the Compson family, a once respected aristocratic family that has fallen into hard times, both financially and socially, in the 20th century. Like many of the author's works, The Sound and the Fury is set in the fictional Yoknapatawpha County in Mississippi, based on Faulkner's childhood experiences in Oxford. The novel is primarily written in stream-of-consciousness style and each of its four sections is narrated by and/or focuses on a different family member, each of which is affected by the family's plight in his or her own way. In Faulkner's non-chronological plot, the story is interspersed with characters' asynchronous thoughts and flashbacks. The Sound and the Fury is one of Faulkner's most highly acclaimed novels and played a major role in his receiving the 1949 Nobel Prize in Literature. Chiefly a biographer, Professor Kenneth Silverman co-directed the American Civilization program at NYU, and won not only the Pulitzer but also the Bancroft Prize for his work The Life and Times of Cotton Mather. Other notable works of his include biographies of Edgar Allan Poe and Samuel F. B. Morse. A magician himself, he also profiled the life of Harry Houdini. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Vies Imaginaires.

      Paris Le Livre Contemporain 1929 - 4to (27.6 x 24.1 cm). With 60 colour pochoir engravings, including 15 hors text and 42 in text, wood-engraved by Pierre Bouchet. Loose as issued in original wrappers with fine pochoir illustration to upper cover, contemporary slipcase and chemise. No. 59 of 120 copies created specially for members of Le Livre Contemporain under the direction of E. de Crauzat and A. Bertaut. This copy belonged to Monsieur C. Gauthier Lathuille. The work itself is a collection of 22 semi-biographical short stories about Petronius, Lucretius, Paolo Ucello, Pocahontas, William Kidd and other historical figures, first published in the newspaper Le Journal between 1894 and 1895. Incorporating myth and fantasy with historical facts, they are considered among the first of the genre of biographical fiction. Jorge Luis Borges was extremely fond of Schwob's writing. Barbier's plates are devoted to the subjects that interested him most. While preserving the settings and costumes of their times, he makes them all inhabitants of an elegant, ambiguous country in which conventional expectations are invariably disappointed. Of particular note are the frontispiece, showing the muse of intimate history gazing into a globe and dictating what she sees to Cupid; Clodia accompanying her brother to a Roman brothel; and Pocahontas meeting Captain John Smith.

Includes illustrations of the human reproductive organs, labeled in Yiddish. In addition to the important content, the design of the cover is classic late 1920s modernist Yiddish book design, with the use of black and red lines and circles amongst the Yiddish lettering. Originally published in German as "Bub und Ma del; Gespra che unter Kameraden u ber die Geschlechterfrage, " the title translates as, "Guy and Gal: A Comradely Discussion about the Question of Morals. " 1st Yiddish translation, from Riga, of Max Hoddans progressive pro-sex discussion of changing sexual morals, advocating for a more open and liberal view of sexuality. Hodan who was Jewish, was Berlin's chief medical officer (surgeon-general) , and published the "Worker's Sexual Magazine, " perhaps not a surprise as "Hodan had been involved in the sex reform movement in Germany. His book gives us a good example of the price which the sex reformers took in what they saw as the dangerous struggle with puritanical ideas. Hodan wrote that the history of sexology was a 'record of the resistance of the champions of obsolete ideas and customs, threatened in their security and supremacy bu the pioneers of constructive progress'" (Jeffreys, The Spinster and Her Enemies: Feminism and Sexuality, 1880-1930. P. 186) . SUBJECT(S) : Sex. Sexual ethics. Sex instructions. OCLC lists 5 copies worldwide (Royal Danish Lib, Cleveland Pub Lib, YIVO, HUC, Oxford) . Paper toning as expected, but not fragile.

        Diary of Travel Cruises to the West Indies and Bermuda 1929-1930

      n.p.: n.p., 1929. Diary. Very good. Approx. 6.5" x 4" diary with leather covered boards and working metal locking clasp. The diary is in very good condition with light edge rubs to the leather. Diary has gilt decorated borders and "My Trip" in gilt letters on the front cover. White glossy end papers. All edges gilt. Large, folded, color lithograph map of the United States tipped in on the rear paste down. The diary has seven small leather tabs with gilt lettered subject headings including The Journey, The Places, People I Met, Autograph, Addresses, Side Trips, and The Return. No address of Ruth Gilbert or location where the diary originated was found inside.Pasted down on the verso of the right front flyleaf are 3 thin cut paper clippings arranged to provide the time and location of the Steamer departure. The front blank end paper has a pasted down trimmed map illustration of the cruise course with "Furness Bermuda Line" printed below. The front blank end paper has a pasted down, trimmed notice, typed on Thos. Cook & Son Company letterhead, and addressed to Miss Ruth Gilbert. This notice is signed by the company agent and provides details of the ship's departure. Contents of the diary consist of 118 pages of manuscript diary entries, autographs, and a few sketches recorded during two separate cruises in early 1929 and in the summer of 1930. Ms. Gilbert traveled on the Steamer "Nova Scotia" and visited St. Thomas, St. Croix, St. Kitts, Antigua, Guadeloupe, Martinique, St. Lucia, Barbados, Trinidad, Dominica, and Bermuda. The first entry is dated February 9th, 1929 as the ship set sail at 3:00pm.Miss Gilbert describes her daily observations while aboard on ship and while exploring the Islands. Some of the entries include racist names and period stereotypes for people of color. One entry refers to children of color as ..."N...r tots" (Guadeloupe Feb. 16, 1929). While in Trinidad, February 22, 1929, Gilbert observes, "The Island has quite a population of Indians and they are so much more intelligent looking and of stronger character apparently then the blacks.." Entries of hurricane damage to the Islands from the previous year are also recorded. In two entries Miss Gilbert writes, "We went ashore about 3:30 taking our bathing suits. Had to go in large rowboats propelled by negroes. Upon arrival, all took a bus across the island from Frederiksted to Christiansted, 14 miles. The country was rather barren and dreary. There is quite a lot of destruction from the hurricane. The Marines are at Christiansted. In one street as a result of the hurricane a house had collapsed on top of a car, puncturing all the tires." (St. Croix, February 14, 1929)"Went ashore here about 8. From the ship the place looked wrecked from the hurricane and upon landing found that to be true and reconstruction very slow. The streets are dirty, the shops filthy and not much in them." (Basse Terre, Guadeloupe, February 16, 1929)The hurricane referenced was called the San Felipe Segundo Hurricane (1928), one of the deadliest hurricanes in the Atlantic. When the same hurricane hit Florida it was called the Okeechobee hurricane.The contents of the diary also include an autograph and address section with several names and and locations of people Miss Gilbert met during her cruise. Several of the people came from New York City and Boston. A type name card of "Richard E. Dillon" is placed just before the tab section "People I have Met". The name at the top of the page is "Mr. R. E. Dillon - "Boston Rusher". A few original pencil sketches were drawn on the pages. One of the sketches, protected by tissue, is of an unnamed clipper ship. The drawing is signed "S. Moore.

        Dream of the Red Chamber

      New York: Doubleday, 1929. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good/good. 1st American edition (in English) of the all-time best selling Chinese novel. A laid-in clipping has offset at page 208 else very good in a price clipped dustjacket with chips, tears, and neat strengthening, but a good jacket, and yes it's flawed, but the old anvil laughs at many broken hammers, and it's the only one I've had (the cleanest shirt in the hamper) because this book has been hard to find in jacket since the ark docked. A novel written in, and set in, the 18th century (Qing dynasty) about conflicts undermining a sizable household, their rise and fall, contrasted alongside their loyalties to, and their plots against, one another, a microcosm that often mirrors the macrocosm of Qing Imperial politics, its ethics, customs, education, religion, economics, laws, culture, and intrigues, during the last period of China's feudal era. Our 1st American edition is preceded in English by a quirky 1892-1893 Hong Kong edition, but quirky or not, that's the real 1st edition in English and thus it's worth more money. The rule that "1st editions are always more valuable than reprints of them" has its exceptions, but the exceptions are so few, and the individual reasons for their exception vary, and vary so haphazardly, that all attempts to form guidelines turn into a long climb up Mt. Anthill, and habitually lead to treeing the wrong bobcat. And in the "so few exceptions to the rule department" here's my query: Is Kim Jong-un, the only Asian who tests badly?

In Faulkner's non-chronological plot, the story is interspersed with characters' asynchronous thoughts and flashbacks. The Sound and the Fury is one of Faulkner's most highly acclaimed novels and played a major role in his receiving the 1949 Nobel Prize in Literature. Chiefly a biographer, Professor Kenneth Silverman co-directed the American Civilization program at NYU, and won not only the Pulitzer but also the Bancroft Prize for his work The Life and Times of Cotton Mather. Other notable works of his include biographies of Edgar Allan Poe and Samuel F. B. Morse. A magician himself, he also profiled the life of Harry Houdini. . First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        Laughing Boy (FIRST EDITION OF THE PULITZER-PRIZE WINNING NOVEL, WITH AUTHOR AUTOGRAPH SIGNATURE LAID IN)

      Houghton Mifflin, Cambridge 1929 - First printing with no mention of any prizes, 1929 date to both copyright and title pages. Jacket has been price clipped, shows several moderate chips, and is somewhat age-darkened, especially to spine. An author autograph signature, clipped from a letter, is laid in. (Author La Farge has NOT signed directly to any page of this book.)

Author La Farge, who had a speaking knowledge of Navajo, and said he was known among them as Anast'harzi Nez, "the Tall Cliff-Dweller," attempts to write entirely from the Indian point of view. Winner of the 1930 Pulitzer Prize for Literature. The 1934 film starred Ramón Novarro and Lupe Vélez. 302 pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
