        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. .

        UNE FEMME DANS LA LUNE (THE WOMAN IN THE MOON)

      Éditions Cosmopolites, Paris 1929 - First Printing. Near Fine in a Very Good+ example of the rare dustjacket. A touch of faint foxing to the preliminary pages and text edges, with light tanning to the same. The fragile dustjacket is an attractive example featuring wraparound artwork. Light wear to the extremities with some moderate rubbing along the hinges; trace of shallow loss at the spine ends and corner tips, as well as some light scattered foxed spots and faint dampstains visible on the verso. Basis for Fritz Lang's 1929 silent film Frau in Mond, adapted for the screen by Thea von Harbou from her 1928 novel Die Frau in Mond. The novel was released in the US and UK in 1930 as By Rocket to the Moon and The Woman in the Moon, respectively. The story is something of a cross between H.G. Wells and Jules Verne, and the film is widely considered to be one of the first serious science fiction movies. An attractive copy of an extremely scarce edition, published the same year the film was released and preceding any English language translation. [Attributes: First Edition]

The high quality Abbey Mills paper accounts for the lack of foxing in the text. Although 235 numbered copies were printed by The Westminster Press, only 200 were offered for sale. The original dates of publication of the Works were as follows: Vainglory (1915), Inclinations (1916), Odette (1916), Caprice (1917), Valmouth (1919), The Princess Zoubaroff (1920), Santal (1921), The Flower Beneath the Foot (1923), Sorrow in Sunlight [Prancing Nigger was the American title, issued by Brentano and adopted here] (1925) and Concerning the Eccentricities of Cardinal Pirelli (1926). A Study in Temperament, printed in the same volume as "Odette d'Antrevernes" in 1905 is omitted from this edition by the author's expressed wish (just as well perhaps owing to the jejune nature of this work, but it might have been useful for the record to have had it included). The Cambridge educated Firbank (1886-1926), dilettante son of wealthy parents, has been described as "a subterranean link between Oscar Wilde and Ivy Compton-Burnett." Although considered a minor novelist in his time, his novels are works of art and artifice and have influenced many writers in the latter half of the 20th century. English orientalist Arthur Waley (1889-1966) writes in the Introduction to this set: "The chief charge against Firbank is that he was silly. . . . [but] If . . . there exists anyone who like myself cannot discover in most modern fiction from first to last line any connection at all with literature, he will feel for Firbank's thin streak of genius an enthusiasm that admirers of our 'great' contemporary novelists will find hard to understand." A very nice set of this scarce edition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
