        Look Homeward, Angel

      New York: Scribner's, 1929 - First edition of Wolfe's rhapsodic first novel, one of the most lyrical and passionate evocations of coming of age in American literature. An excellent association copy, INSCRIBED by Wolfe to Elaine (Westall Gould) and Harold (Gould), "For Elaine and Harold with friendship and love always, and with especial thanks because they have been among the best friends this book has had. Tom Wolfe. Jan 25, 1930." Elaine Westall was Wolfe's cousin, and the author of an insightful analytical memoir, LOOK BEHIND YOU, THOMAS WOLFE: GHOSTS OF A COMMON TRIBAL HERITAGE (Hicksville: Exposition Press, 1976). Her parents and other members of the family were models for Wolfe's characters: her father, Henry Westall, for example, was the model for both Uncle Bascom in OF TIME AND THE RIVER, and Bascom Hawke, whose portrait Wolfe so memorably painted. The volume is somewhat worn -- about very good -- with a horizontal tear a half-inch below the head of the spine extending about haflway across, and some loss to the gilding on the spine. In a fine facsimile dustwrapper and accompanied by an inscribed copy of Gould's memoir. Both volumes bear the bookplates of the historian Francis Russell, whose affectionate review of Gould's book was published in the Winter 1977 of MODERN AGE. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The History of the Adventures of Joseph Andrews and his Friend Mr Abraham Adams

      London - John Lane, 1929. London - John Lane, 1929 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Henry Fielding'sfirstfull-lengthnovel comic novel. Published in 1742 and defined by Fielding as a comic epic poem in prose, it is the story of a good-natured footman's adventures on the road home from London with his friend and mentor, the absent-minded parson Abraham Adams. The novel represents the coming together of the two competing aesthetics of eighteenth-century literature: the mock-heroic and neoclassical (and, by extension, aristocratic) approach of Augustans such as Alexander Pope and Jonathan Swift; and the popular, domestic prose fiction of novelists such as Daniel Defoe and Samuel Richardson. The novel draws on a variety of inspirations. Written in imitation of the manner of Cervantes, the author of Don Quixote, the work owes much of its humour to the techniques developed by Cervantes, and its subject-matter to the seemingly loose arrangement of events, digressions and lower-class characters to the genre of writing known as picaresque. In deference to the literary tastes and recurring tropes of the period, it relies on bawdy humour, an impending marriage and a mystery surrounding unknown parentage, but conversely is rich in philosophical digressions, classical erudition and social purpose. With numerous plates and illustrations by Norman Tealby throughout. Condition: In a decorative cloth binding with Brodart dustwrapper. Externally smart, with some minor shelfwear only. Dustwrapper is smart, with some minor edgewear. Internally,firmly bound. Pages are bright, with some scattered light spotting (particularly to first and last few pages).

George Augustus Moore (1852 1933) was an Irish novelist, short-story writer, poet, art critic, memoirist and dramatist. Moore came from a Roman Catholic landed family. He originally wanted to be a painter, and studied art in Paris during the 1870s. There, he befriended many of the leading French artists and writers of the day. In 1923 Geraint Goodwin graduated from Wales to Fleet Street and as a reporter on the staff of Allied Newspapers had access to the leading literary figures in London. Being an ambitious boy from distant Wales without an Oxbridge education he decided to cultivate his contacts relentlessly. He audaciously approached the celebrated George Moore, no mean figure at the time, and suggested that he interview him on matters close to Moore's heart. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is very little wear to the extremities. There is some wear to the dust wrapper including discolouration and a couple of small chips and closed tears. Internally the pages are bright and clean.

        The Love of the Foolish Angel

      London - W. Collins Sons and Co., 1929. London - W. Collins Sons and Co., 1929 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. Grey patterned cloth covered boards with gilt lettering to spine. First edition which is illustrated with a lovely frontispiece and decorations by the well known French illustrator Edmund Dulac. Helen Beauclerk was a novelist and translator. She was the daughter of Major Sydney Edwin Bellingham and Helen Mary Dunlop, but was adopted by Captain Ferdinand Beauclerk. Her name was legally changed to Helen Beauclerk by Deed Poll. Edmund Dulac (1882-1953), was a book illustrator prominent during the so called Golden Age of Illustration. He was picked up in London at the age of 22 by J. M. Dent, and given a commission to illustrate the collected works of the Bront sisters. He then began an association with the Leceister Gallery and Hodder & Stoughton; the gallery would commission paintings from Dulac and then sell the rights to Hodder & Stoughton, who would publish the books (one book a year over many years) while the gallery would sell the paintings. Books produced under this arrangement by Dulac include The Arabian Nights (1907), an edition of Shakespeare's The Tempest (1908), of The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam (1909), The Sleeping Beauty and Other Fairy Tales (1910), Stories from Hans Christian Andersen (1911), The Bells and Other Poems by Edgar Allan Poe (1912) and Princess Badoura (1913). During World War I he contribued to relief books, including King Albert's Book, Princess Mary's Gift Book, and, unusually, his own Edmund Dulac's Picture Book for the French Red Cross (1915). After the war, the deluxe edition illustrated book became a rarity and Dulac's career in this field was over. His last two such books are Edmund Dulac's Fairy Book (1916) and the Tanglewood Tales (1918). His career continued in other areas however, including newspaper caricatures, portraiture, theatre costume and set design, bookplates, chocolate boxes, and medals. Condition: The binding is tight and firm and both covers are attached. The front and rear inner hinges are strained but holding. There is some wear to the extremities, including some bumping to the top and tail of the spine and to the corners of the boards. The boards also have some small marks and the spineis sunned. Internally the book is clean and bright apart from some isolated spots and some offsetting to the front and rear paste downs and first blank end papers..

        Urformen der Kunst. Photographische Pflanzenbilder. Hrsg. mit einer Einleitung von Karl Nierendorf. 2. Aufl.

      . Berlin 1929. With 120 b/w plates. 4to. XVII pp. + plates. Publisher's green cloth with title stamped in gilt on frontcover and spine. Name on flyleaf. * As the first edition, published 1928, was in a smaller format, this 2nd edition is considered the most attractive; "Urformen der Kunst" is one of the most influential photographic books ever to have been published, and an icon of macrophotography. Parr & Badger I, pp. 96. "Toward the end of the 1920s, Karl Blossfeldt's plates, published as URFORMEN DER KUNST, became one of the most discussed photographic books of the interval between the wars. His plant studies, originally completed with a view to the commercial art classes, fascinated the contemporary Avant-garde, and still influence both conventional and conceptual photographers today" (Hans-Michael Koetzie)..
