      New York: Covici-Friede, 1929.. New York: Covici-Friede, 1929.. Two volumes. Large octavo. Straw-yellow cloth, stamped in silver, with overlaid blue paper panels, also stamped in silver, t.e.g., others untrimmed. Portrait. Spines a bit darkened, with a couple small marks, top edges a bit dust marked, but a very good set, in a sound example of the original slipcase, which lacks the printed label (with corresponding patch of offset). The so-called "Victory Edition," limited to 225 numbered sets, with a leaf signed by the author bound into the first volume. Preceding the text in the first volume is an Introduction by Morris Ernst about the legal victory against the book's prosecution in the US, a partial list of the signers of the protest against efforts to suppress it, and a special author's Preface to this edition, celebrating those parties involved in the legal history of the book. However, the "Victory" was confined to the US - the book remained a condemned text in the UK for decades to follow. An important work in the canon of lesbian literature.

Housed in a matching marbled paper-covered slipcase.A charming series of twenty colored sketches of the artist's two dogs (an Irish Wolfhound and a Bull Terrier) asleep and cuddling on Alden's sofa.Cecil Aldin (1870-1935) “was a most prolific artist and illustrator. While living in London, he became friends with the Beggarstaff Brothers (see Houfe under William Nicholson and James Pryde), John Hassall, Phil May and Dudley Hardy, and their influence on his work was great. He produced a great number of prints, a select list of which is included with a comprehensive bibliography in Heron’s book [Cecil Aldin: The Story of a Sporting Artist (1981)]. He did a great deal of advertising work, including posters, for such companies as Bovril, Colman (manufacturers of starch and mustard), and Cadbury’s, and Royal Doulton produced about sixty items with Aldin drawings between 1910 and 1939. Horses, dogs and the English countryside were the major topics of Aldin’s illustrations. The obituary in The Times asserted that ‘there never yet has been a painter of dogs fit to hold a candle to him…Cecil Aldin can justly be described as one of the leading spirits in the renaissance of British sporting art’” (Alan Horne, The Dictionary of 20th Century British Book Illustrators, p. 67). Books written and illustrated by Aldin include Old Inns (1921); Old Manor Houses (1923); Cathedral[s] and Abbey Churches of England (1924); Romances of the Road (1928); Sleeping Partners (1929); An Artist’s Models (1930); Exmoor, the Riding Playground of England (1935); and Hunting Scenes (1936).

Aber das macht nichts; das wirklich Bedeutsame wird doch fertig, und auf gewöhnliche Professorenproduktion lege ich immer weniger Gewicht, je mehr ich mit wirklicher Genialität in Berührung komme. Ein lange geplantes Unternehmen, die Herausgabe einer Bücherserie, von der ich mir nichts geringeres als eine umstürzende Reform der Philosophie verspreche, ist inzwischen in Fluss gekommen [...]". - Gemeinsam mit Philipp Frankl sollte Schlick von diesem Jahr an bis zu seinem Tod die "Schriften zur wissenschaftlichen Weltauffassung" herausgeben.

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1929. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1929. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good in a slightly darkened, Near Fine dustwrapper with minor edgewear. Wilson's first volume of poetry, here INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the front endpaper: "To Marion and John Amen/This little sheaf of woodland/pipings from a wayward muse,/From Edmund Wilson/October 44." The beginning of Wilson's longtime friendship with John Amen, who would eventually become his tax lawyer and executor, dates to 1919. Wilson married his second wife, Margaret Canby, in Washington, DC at the home of Amen, then Assistant Attorney General of the United States. That marriage, of course, would end tragically with Margaret's death two years later after falling down stairs. Amen was the second husband of Marion Cleveland Dell, the daughter of former President Grover Cleveland. A scarce book to find signed, let alone with such a fine association.

      Appleton , 1929. Appleton , 1929. First edition, UK issue. Original blue pebble grained cloth lettered in gilt to spine and upper cover in supplied yellow printed dustwrapper. The dedication copy, inscribed by the author on the dedication page, under the printed dedication (To A.J.H.S.), "from E.W. / December 1929". A very good copy with the gilt dulled and the rear hinge tender, dustwrapper in very good condition indeed with minor wear to the edges and a slightly toned spine. Housed in a quarter leather clamshell box. The dedicatee is John Hugh Smith, an American expatriate banker, art collector, francophile and literary devotee. When in around 1904 Edith Wharton became friends with Henry James, she joined a group of men who became known as her "inner circle" or, sometimes, "the happy few". This group included men of letters, artists as well as business men such as Hugh Smith. This group defined itself against the society its founders had left in the United States, while simultaneously criticising and accommodating the one it found in Europe. It existed parallel to but also as a transatlantic mirror of the Bloomsbury group.

      Hogarth Press , 1929. Hogarth Press , 1929. First trade edition. Original cinnamon cloth with gilt titles on the spine in pictorial Vanessa Bell dustwrapper. A fine copy, with a small ownership name on the front endpaper, in a near fine dustwrapper, which has just one tiny nick from a corner at the base of the spine, but is otherwise beautifully crisp and clean. 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."

        THE WORKS OF SHAKESPEARE The Text of the First Folio with Quarto variants and a selection of modern readings: edited by Herbert Farjeon

      The Nonesuch Press 1929-1933, 19291933. The Nonesuch Press 1929-1933, 19291933. Seven volumes, number 95 of 1600 sets printed on Pannekoek mould-made paper and bound in publisher's full orange Niger morocco with gilt titles to the spine and borders to covers by Bain. Top edge gilt on the rough, others uncut. A near fine set, with a little variation in colour and occasional spotting to covers, both less than is usually encountered. "The Shakespeare represents the chef d'oeuvre of the Nonesuch Press, and is a model of careful proof reading and imaginative setting. The best of ancient and modern conjectural emendations are unobtrusively set in the margin for the benefit of a glancing eye. This is the finest of all editions of our greatest poet" (The Nonesuch Century) "We turn over to the Nonesuch Shakespeare. There you have created a most marvellous pleasure. I have handled it ever so many times, and read The Tempest right through. It satisfies. It is final, like the Kelmscott Chaucer or the Ashendene Virgil. And it is a book which charms one to read slowly, an art which is almost gone from us in these times. Every word which Shakespeare uses stands out glowing. A really great edition. The tact and grace of your editor have been surpassing. I think I like the size and shape and binding almost as much as the text. The paper, too, is just right. Altogether a triumph. One of the best things is that it can be done again. Nobody will ever dare to produce the old type of edition now, while your text stands there to reproach them. It means a permanent improvement in Shakespeares" (T.E. Lawrence letter to David Garnett).
