        A ROOM OF ONE'S OWN

      Hogarth Press / Fountain Press 1929 - First edition, large paper issue, number 248 of 492 copies SIGNED by the author. Original maroon cloth with gilt titles. A near fine copy, with some fading to the spine and lesser fading to a strip at the top of the boards. An extended essay, based on Woolf's lectures at a women's college at Cambridge University in 1928. In it, Woolf addresses her thoughts on "the question of women and fiction," interpreted by Woolf as many questions. In A Room of One's Own, Woolf ponders the significant question of whether or not a woman could produce art of the high quality of Shakespeare. In doing so, she examines women's historical experience as well as the distinctive struggle of the woman artist. "a woman must have money and a room of her own if she is going to write."

        Fairy Tales Of Kootenay [FIRST EDITION PUBLISHED 1929 & SIGNED AND DEDICATED BY THE AUTHOR]

      Arthur H Stockwell, London 1929 - Signed by Author. Catherine Armsmith aka Catherine Anthony Clark 1892-1977, was born in London and emigrated to Canada in 1914. In 1919 she married Leonard Clark and settled in the Kootenay Mountains of British Columbia. According to ‘CANADIAN CHILDREN'S BOOKS 1799-1939 in the Special Collections and University Archives Division, The University of British Columbia Library’A BIBLIOGRAPHICAL CATALOGUE compiled by SHEILA A. EGOFF ‘Fairy tales of Kootenay is probably her first book, and in its setting heralds the background and the Canadian mythic figures that made Clark the first important fantasist in Canada’ Here we find Indian spirits and British Columbia's Ogopogo – a creature akin to Scotland’s Loch Ness Monster. Other stories deal with a mermaid, a dragon, a gnome and other figures common in British fantasy. As far as we can tell this book was the only one to be published under the Armsmith pseudonym –possibly her maiden name-. Researching her background we found that apparently she began writing for ‘The Prospector’, the community newspaper in Nelson, British Columbia. Clark’s later works, for which she became famous include: The Sun Horse (1951), winner of the Canadian Association of Children's Librarians bronze medal in 1952, The One-Winged Dragon (1955), The Silver Man (1958), The Diamond Feather; or The Door in the Mountain: A Magic Tale for Children (1962), The Hunter and the Medicine Man (1966) and The Man with the Yellow Eyes (1963). Contents: The Spirit of Kootenay; The Whistling Pine; The Mother-of-Pearl Child; The Gnome in Chains; The Phantom Pirates; The Indian Necklace; The Winged Horses; The Dragon; The Magic Umbrella. Book - [SEE SCANS] - in Very Good blue boards with gilt lettering - light marking to the boards, some sunning to the spine, light bumping to the extreme corners and extreme ends of the spine. Contents, some browning to the occasional page and to the extreme page edges, the illustration opposite page 53 has light marking to the extreme verso edges [SEE SCAN], there is a crease to the rear free end paper otherwise the contents clean and tightly bound. Few copies of this important early example of Clark’s work exist, this one is enhanced by being a copy the author gave or intended to give to the great British author G.K. Chesterton.

        Gouache of male and female mallard ducks flying over marshland, sky and clouds in the distance

      New York: The Derrydale Press, 1929. First edition. Image 10 x 7 inches, matted and framed to 15-1/2 x 12-1/2 inches overall. Signed lower left "Edgar Burke 1927". The drake is the original painting of the illustration for "The Mallard" section of Connett's Feathered Game from a Sporting Journal. Fine condition. Siegel pp. 192-3 and No. 24 . Edgar Burke, MD (1889-1950) successfully combined the vocation of medicine (he was a member of the American College of Physicians and Surgeons) and the avocation of sport. He was an enthusiastic wildfowler and upland gunner, and expert angler and fly tyer (he designed the flies "Doctor Burke" and "Family Secret") and was interested in pigeon racing and cock fighting (it was he, in the Jersey City cock-fights of the 1930s, who sewed up the wounds of the injured birds). He was also a celebrated sporting artist, illustrating two Derrydale Press classics, Feathered Game (1929)--such as the example offered here--and Upland Game Bird Shooting in America (1930), and producing front cover vignettes for seven more, including Grouse Feathers, and De Shootinest Gent'man. He was, notes Siegel, a childhood companion and lifetime friend of Derrydale proprietor Eugene Connett--a relationship that paid large dividends for readers of the Press. A UNIQUE AND BEAUTIFUL ORIGINAL DUCK GOUACHE FOR THE DERRYDALE PRESS CLASSIC "FEATHERED GAME"

        A Packet for Ezra Pound.

      Dublin: The Cuala Press, 1929 - Octavo. Original Holland boards, write paper title label to spine, titles to upper board in black, blue endpapers. With the original glassine wrapper. Housed in a blue cloth slipcase. Tanning to endpapers. An excellent copy in the creased and tanned wrapper which has some splitting from the head of the spine, and loss to ends. Vignette engraved title page. First edition, first impression; one of only 425 copies. Yeats's Packet for Ezra Pound presents one side of an intriguingly unlikely literary and personal friendship; Yeats, who lived with Pound more than once (first in Ashdown Forest, where Pound's ostensibly secretarial status produced the drastic renovation of Yeats's poetic style in his 1914 collection "Responsibilities", and later in Rapallo during the late 1920s, the period of association with which Yeats's "Packet" is concerned), describes Pound as a man "whose art is the opposite of mine, whose criticism commends what I most condemn, a man with whom I should quarrel more than with anyone else if we were not united by affection." This copy is from the collection, with his inscription on the colophon, of Ronald Lane Latimer, an editor and publisher of modernist poetry under the Alcestis Press imprint in New York during the 1930s.

        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

        Look Homeward, Angel.

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1929 - First edition. Octavo, original dark blue cloth. In excellent condition with some wear to the spine and spine tips. Overall, a pleasing copy of this literary highspot. American novelist, Thomas Wolfe "made it possible to believe that the stuff of life, with all its awe and mystery and magic, could by some strange alchemy be transmuted to the page" (William Gay). "Look Homeward, Angel is one of the most important novels of my life. . . . 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

      The Black Sun Press, Paris 1929 - 210 x 168 mm (8 1/4 x 6 5/8"). 4 p.l. (first blank), xv, [i], 55, [3] pp., [1] leaf (blank). 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.). 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]
