        Treccani 1929 1937 Enciclopedia italiana scienze lettere arti

      Istituto Giovanni Treccani 1929 - Pubblicata sotto l'altopatronato di S. M. il Re d'ItaliaENCICLOPEDIA ITALIANA DI SCIENZE, LETTERE ED ARTI1929 - 1937 MCMXXIX - VII41 VOLUMI35 Volumi, 1 Volume Indice, 1 Vol. Appendice, 4 Vol. aggiornamenti 1938-1948 , 1949-1960Misurano cm 31,5 x cm 26, titoli e fregi in oro al dorso e al piatto, circa 1000 pagg. per volume.Circa 12 legature sono state restaurate ( come in foto )Il metodo dell'Enciclopedia Italiana è il più largo metodo storico, così in ogni singolo articolo come nel sistema generale. Grazie a questo metodo, la Direzione ha ambito di raccogliere intorno a sé, assegnando a ciascuno la parte sua, gli scrittori della più varia mentalità, a collaborare a un'esposizione compiuta ed organica, obiettiva e pacata, della somma delle conoscenze che sono il risultato d'ogni ricerca scientìfica e costituiscono gli elementi essenziali della cultura. Poiché la cultura che, secondo il criterio adottato, dovrà poter essere attinta nell'Enciclopedia, non è la cultura dei dotti nelle materie stesse di loro speciale competenza, né la cultura del popolo, che per ogni ramo del sapere ha bisogno dei primi rudimenti; ma quella appunto delle persone colte, che, pur avendo speciali cognizioni scientifiche, sanno che tante materie rimangono fuori del campo dei loro studi; o, pur possedendo una buona cultura generale, sentono il bisogno di colmarne occasionalmente le lacune e approfondirne talune parti divenute di peculiare interesse. E sono tutte le persone che costituiscono la classe elevata e dirigente, la quale s'incontra e s'intende, in un dato tempo, sullo stesso terreno, in una comune vita intellettuale e morale. Ricercati, riuniti e classificati tutti gli elementi e motivi di questa cultura vivi e vitali, dinanzi alla vastità e molteplicità facilmente immaginabile della materia, è stato necessario un preventivo giudizio che distinguesse ciò che nell'opera meritava di apparire in primo piano, ciò che si doveva dare solo di scorcio e ciò infine che era più opportuno lasciar fuori, o perché non oggetto di conoscenza scientifica o perché distante dal fuoco della nostra tradizione. L'utilità di un'enciclopedia è tanto maggiore quanto più sapiente è il giuoco di prospettiva nel quadro, in cui essa compone le varie conoscenze. Non ci sono per altro criteri con cui si possano definire norme fisse per la composizione di tale quadro; c'è la sensibilità ai fatti della cultura in coloro che collaborano all'opera; i quali, operando anch' essi nella cultura dell' epoca, hanno nella loro stessa formazione spirituale la misura del giudizio. CARTOGRAFIA La soluzione che se ne è data offre il vantaggio di presentare i nomi in una forma che non si discosta molto da quella che è offerta nelle carte dell'Atlante Internazionale del Touring Club Italiano. Dal sistema di trascrizione seguito dall'Atlante, l'Enciclopedia si è dovuta scostare in alcuni punti; ad esempio, mentre nelle carte speciali di quello i nomi sono dati nella grafìa indigena, l'Enciclopedia dà come esponenti di articoli i nomi geografici stranieri nella forma italiana, quando ve ne sia una consacrata dall'uso, e vi aggiunge tra parentesi la forma nella lingua del luogo; inoltre, per i nomi dei paesi coloniali, l'Atlante del Touring adopera la forma ufficiale usata dallo stato dominante, l'Enciclopedia, pur accogliendo questa forma, vi aggiunge fra parentesi la trascrizione della forma indigena. Si osservi che questa trascrizione, al pari di quella dei nomi geografici dei paesi dell' Europa Orientale e degli stati indipendenti dell'Asia e dell'Africa, è fatta in base al sistema seguito per i nomi storici; e questo sistema si discosta nella trascrizione di alcuni suoni da quello usato nell'Atlante Internazionale del Touring. Tuttavia si è fatto in modo che la forma quivi data risultasse tra parentesi accanto alla forma nostra. L'Enciclopedia Italiana, pur avendo un proprio corredo cartografico, ha creduto opportuno riferirsi all'Adante Internazionale del Touring per la stessa importanz

It's a wonderful story for any young person burning with literary ambition, but it also speaks to the longings of our whole lives; I'm still moved by Wolfe's ability to convey the human appetite for understanding and experience" (Elizabeth Kostova).

        TALES TOLD OF SHEM AND SHAUN. THREE FRAGMENTS FROM WORK IN PROGRESS

ONE OF 500 COPIES on Van Gelder Zonen paper (this is copy #249). (There were also 50 copies hors commerce and 100 copies on Japanese vellum.). Original white paper wrappers, title printed in black and red on front cover and spine, printer's device on back cover, in the original glassine dust jacket. In a (slightly worn and expertly repaired) cardboard slipcase of orange cloth covered with gilt paper and with orange ribbon pull (apparently a variant of the publisher's slipcase described in Slocum & Cahoon). With frontispiece portrait of the author by Constantin Brancusi, original tissue guard. Printed in red and black. Slocum & Cahoon A-36; Ransom, p. 111; The Artist and the Book 32. A minuscule chip to glassine at head and tail of spine, otherwise IN PRISTINE CONDITION. This is an immaculate copy of the second separately published excerpt from "Finnegans Wake" (preceded by "Anna Livia Plurabelle"), a work clearly reminiscent of avant-garde Paris in the 1920s. The text is by one of the great Modernist writers, the illustration is by a leading abstract artist, and the printing is by a private press founded by two American expatriates, Harry and Caresse Crosby, who were part of the literary circle that included F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, and Gertrude Stein. This is the only book illustration by Brancusi (1876-1957)--a sculptor who did very little graphic work--listed in "The Artist and the Book," which notes that the portrait is "as abstract as the text." This was one of the last books printed at the Black Sun Press during Harry Crosby's lifetime; he committed suicide in December 1929 (Caresse Crosby continued the enterprise after his death). FIRST EDITION. ONE OF 500 COPIES on Van Gelder Zonen paper (this is copy #249). (There were also 50 copies hors commerce and 100 copies on Japanese vellum.) [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Morel undertook the monumental task of translating Joyce's masterpiece, with the stipulation that Larbaud would revise the translation as necessary. According to Sylvia Beach, Stuart Gilbert became aware of the translation when portions were published in "Commerce". He offered his assistance which was readily accepted as "I don't know of anybody, except perhaps Joyce, who knew as much about this work as he [Gilbert] did". Morel and Lorbaud left the project before completion with the "survivors, Gilbert and Adrienne.completing the work in the back room of her bookshop".

        ULYSSES

      Paris, [New York] Shakespeare and Company, [by Adolph and Rudolph Loewinger for Samuel Roth and Max Roth] 1927, [1929] - The very rarely encountered true First American Edition (unauthorized), preceding the authorized edition by some five years and the first printing in England by seven years. Small 4to, in a handsome contemporary binding of three-quarter navy blue morocco over blue cloth covered boards, the spine featuring three elegant compartments with red morocco inlaid fleur-de-lis within a densely gilt-stippled field, two further compartments gilt lettered, each compartment gilt ruled and divided by gilt-stippled raised bands, additional gilt lettering at the tale, endpapers marbled, t.e.g, (6), 735 pp. A very nice copy in contemporary binding, the paper still quite fresh, clean and bright, the binding is handsome in spite of some light age wear along the edges and tips. SCARCE FIRST AMERICAN EDITION (UNAUTHORIZED). The most important novel of the twentieth century . ULYSSES can be viewed as the pinnacle of the Modernist movement, and its impact on all subsequent western literature is unmistakable. Such writers as Virginia Woolf, John Dos Passos, William Faulkner, Samuel Beckett, Malcolm Lowry, and Anthony Burgess have all paid tribute, consciously or unconsciously, to Joyce's influence. Burgess as well pronounced it the greatest single work in the English literature of this century, and he is not alone in that opinion. According to James Spoerri, "This fortunate combination of printer and publisher resulted in the appearance of ULYSSES as a book whose physical aspect is particularly suited to its content. It is (an). inviting volume, the blue and white of its covers subtly evocative of the Greece whose epic it so closely parallels" (quoted in the catalogue for the Garden Sale, Sotheby's 1989). "This pirated edition of ULYSSES is discussed at some length by R.F. Roberts in his pioneer article, "Bibliographical Notes on James Joyce’s ‘Ulysses’," in the "Colophon", New York, NS. 1.4 (Spring, 1936) 565-579. Among the many points in which this piracy differs from the legitimate (Shakespeare and Co.) printing are the misprint "Jonthan" for Jonathan" (p.[2]), the reversal of the position of the fly title and divisional numeral I, the absence of title and author on the spine, and a very large number of typographical errors. On p. 323 of this piracy, for example, l.29 of the legitimate edition is inverted and inserted as the third line from the bottom. Roberts also states that "The pagination is the same but the type font is perceptibly smaller; the paper is a considerably heavier stock and the book is consequently about one-eighth of an inch thicker." This edition is not a copy of the photographic reproduction mentioned by Joyce in his letter to Bennett A Cerf, April 2, 1932, printed in the 1934 Random House edition of ULYSSES (A 21), but a piracy from new plates. The photographic reproduction mentioned by Joyce almost certainly never existed. Copies of this pirated edition reached Paris and were imported into the United States as genuine copies. One of these, sent by Joyce to Bennett A. Cerf of Random House, was used in setting up the first authorized American edition of ULYSSES. This pirated edition.was printed by Adolph and Rudolph Loewinger.for Samuel Roth, publisher of "Two World and Two Worlds Monthly, and his brother Max Roth. It was unauthorized by Joyce and sold illegally in the United States. Many copies of this piracy were seized by the Society for the Suppression of Vice on October 5, 1929."
