        Magick In Theory And Practice (Book 4, Part III)

      Paris: Lecram, Imp., 1929. Paris: Lecram, Imp., 1929. The elusive second state Subscribers Edition, with an excellent example of the scarce Dust Jacket. The DJ has a light fade to spine, less than usually found. It is otherwise in a Fine state of preservation, with light extremity wear. The book itself would be Fine, if not for mottling to the front and back red cloth boards (heavier to back board). Spine unfaded, Gold Gilt spine title very bright without loss. Top Edge Red Stained. All corners sharp. Binding very tight, and seemingly unread. The usual, light offset to endpapers,as always. It is otherwise internally clean and crisp. "Magick", was first released as a four part wrap edition (with color plate) in 1930 (although the publishers imprint is 1929). It was subsequently released as a one volume hardcover "Published For Subscribers Only", by the Mandrake Press who AC was then associated with. Mandrake took the four part wrap edition, excluded the plate, revised the table of contents, and rebound them into a one volume hardcover "Subscribers Edition". Rarely mentioned by bibliographers (exception: Cornelius/Drylie [p. 209/fn. 149] although not fully elucidated upon), there are two different states of the Subscriber's edition. The first state, and most common is the buckram, with T.E.G. The second and much less common is red cloth, with a red stained top edge. Internally, both are the same. It is said that after the Mandrake Press closed, the left over signatures of MITP where remaindered by Hershant and Foyles. Possibly, this second state is an edition of those remaindered sheets, bound by Foyles Book Club (perhaps for A.C.'s speech at the Foyles luncheon in 1932, "to sell a few hundred sets of my treatise Magick.")? As seen here, both where issued with the same Dust Jacket. Yorke 62.C(b). First Subscribers Edition, 2nd State. Cloth. Very Good/Very Good ++. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.

        HOLY BIBLE - 1828-1829 (PHINNEY)

      H. & E. Phinney, Cooperstown 1929 - Full leather. Five raised bands. Title on leather label on spine. The first leaf is the title page (no frontispiece, if there ever was one). "The Names and Order of all of the Books of the Old and New Testaments, and the Apocrypha, with the number of their Chapters" on verso of title page, followed by "To the Reader," with the beginning of The Table of Contents on verso, numbered page 4. Pagination continues to the end of the Old Testament, ending with page 574, followed by "A Table," which is on pages 575 and 576. Then four unnumbered pages for the family history. The first page of these has not been written in and has a very long tear, mended with strips of paper pasted on. Some tear remains open. There are records of the Servoss family on two of the record pages, the last birth noted being 1888, the first 1814. 99 pages of The Apocrypha follow. Then the title page for The New Testament, which bears the date 1829. Pagination here begins with 579 and continues through 768, including index and tables. There are ten illustration plates. I find 23 short tears (approx. half-inch or less) and 4 long tears.Foxing throughout, mostly light to moderate, with many pages not foxed at all. Foxing heavier at and around plates. Leaf 89-90 has been mostly torn out, but laid back in, with no loss of text, though wrinkled and edge-chipped. The first 4 and last 3 leaves (tables) have eroded edges with some loss of text and are also wrinkled. The last dozen or so leaves have a large water stain. Four dog-ears. Short tear to one plate and two short tears to another plate. The leather binding is scarred and mottled, with moderate wear to edges. The book is very sound. This is probably not the "famous" edition used by Joseph Smith, as the New Testament is dated 1829. So far I have been unable to find another copy with these two dates. 11 x 9 Inches [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Wear to bottom edge of covers, with boards showing through, dark burn stain and wear to lower corner of textblock. Pictorial dust-jacket designed by Cleonike (first issue with "Katherine" spelling on flap); rubbed and faded with loss at spine ends and top margin of rear panel. Hanneman 8A . Inscribed to his close friend Guy Hickok, "To Gros Hickok, with much affection, trusting him to fill in the balnks - Ernest Hemingway." Hemingway met Guy Hickok in 1922, when they were foreign correspondents for North American newspapers in Paris. Hemingway, working for the Toronto Star, began what would become an enduring friendship with the good natured Hickok, who was on assignment for the Brooklyn Daily Eagle. Hickok even provided the inspiration for Hemingway's short story "Che Ti Dice La Patria?" (collected in Men Without Women, 1927). Hemingway's reference to filling in the blanks refers to the book's censorship. "Guy Hickok , who read the novel in manuscript, recognized something of Hemingway's second wife, Pauline, in the character of Catherine -" (Harold Bloom)

Suites sous couverture illustrée identique à la couverture du livre. Etat proche du neuf. ÉDITION ORIGINALE. ÉDITION DE BIBLIOPHILES IMPRIMÉE A 890 EXEMPLAIRES. CELUI-CI, UN DES 20 EXEMPLAIRES SUR JAPON IMPERIAL (N°19) COMPORTANT UNE SUITE DU PREMIER ETAT ET UNE SUITE DE L'ETAT DEFINITIF DES EAUX-FORTES SUR JAPON. Ce sont les souvenirs des nuits passées par Mac Orlan dans les bas-fonds de Paris, les maisons de passe et autres bordels mal famés de la capitale et d'ailleurs. La vie et les rencontres au sein des maisons closes ou simple bouis-bouis à femelles. "Ceux de Rouen étaient extraordinaires. Il y avait dans les petites rues qui accédaient aux quais, du côté du « Perroquet vert », en allant vers le Champ de Mars, des bouges infiniment curieux, auprès desquels les bars anglais de la rue des Charrettes et de la Vicomté étaient des établissements pour des lords et des ladies. Une abominable cohorte de piqueurs de fûts (des soleils) et de rôdeurs décrépits s’y donnaient rendez-vous avec des dockers encore mal débarrassés de la couche de charbon qui les vernissait. On buvait du gros vin épais d’Algérie et, comme la ville offrait l’hospitalité à des interdits de séjour, les bagarres devenaient souvent dangereuses. Certains de ces bars, fréquentés par des dockers et des chauffeurs chinois qui promenaient avec eux leur odeur comme des économies, parvenaient à représenter ce que l’on peut concevoir de plus parfait concernant les enfers de l’humanité. Des filles, souvent presque des enfants, qui se prostituaient pour une soupe, derrière les piles de bois de Norvège, y venaient afin de passer la nuit à l’abri du vent et de la pluie. Elles buvaient des « inséparables », des absinthes à deux pour trois sous. Inutile de sortir du lit, tout cela a disparu depuis longtemps." (extrait) Pierre Mac Orlan (né Pierre Dumarchey, à Péronne le 26 février 1882 - mort à Saint-Cyr-sur-Morin le 27 juin 1970) est un écrivain français. Auteur d'une œuvre abondante et variée, il débuta par l'écriture de contes humoristiques, après avoir en vain tenté une carrière dans la peinture. Après la Première Guerre mondiale, son inspiration se tourna vers le registre fantastique et le roman d'aventures. La dernière partie de sa carrière littéraire fut consacrée à l'écriture de chansons, d'essais et de mémoires. Au cours de sa jeunesse dans les premières années du xxe siècle, Mac Orlan vécut à Montmartre, où il se lia d'amitié avec Guillaume Apollinaire, Francis Carco ou encore Roland Dorgelès. À la même époque, il séjourna également à Rouen, Londres, Palerme, Bruges, etc. Les souvenirs qu'il conserva de cette période, où ses moyens d'existence furent souvent précaires, lui servirent de matériau pour élaborer une œuvre à forte connotation autobiographique, qui influença entre autres André Malraux, Boris Vian et Raymond Queneau. Témoin attentif de son temps, fasciné par les techniques modernes et les nouveaux moyens de communication, mais se tenant autant que faire se pouvait à distance des vicissitudes de l'histoire, il forgea la notion de « fantastique social » pour définir ce qui lui apparaissait comme étant l'envers trouble et mystérieux de son époque.

Auszug aus dem Vorwort: Im Handbuch wird die Genealogie jedes der blühenden Geschlechter Estlands in zwei Teile zerfallen: Im ersten Teil werden Ursprung, Einwanderung, Wappen, Nobilitierung besprochen und Übersichtstafeln gegeben; der zweite Teil enthält die Stammfolgen von etwa 1800 ab, nach Familien und Generationen geordnet- Die Geschlechter wurden nach der Zeit ihrer Aufnahme in die Ritterbank Estlands in drei Klassen geteilt. Dieses wird im Handbuch beibehalten. Der erste Teil umfasst die schon in der Ordenszeit in Estland sesshaft gewesenen Familien, der zweite die in schwedischer Zeit zugezogenen und Teil drei die in russischer Zeit immatrikulierten. Die ausgestorbenen Geschlechter sind im Anhang verzeichnet. #Genea

        Antlitz der Zeit (incomplete copy)

      Transmare Verlag / Kurt Wolff Verlag 1929 - München: Transmare Verlag / Kurt Wolff Verlag, 1929. (11 3/8 x 8 1/2 in., 28.8 x 21.5 cm). First edition. [Note: broken copy] Contains only 34 of the 60 plates. Döblin's text is cut short (exists through page 10, pp. 11-17 lost). Plates begin with plate 9 (lacking nos. 1-8, 13-28, 42-43). Original yellow cloth covered flexible boards with decorated front cover and black titles stamped to spine (spine slack, rounded and faded, covers moderately soiled and spotted; hinges surprisingly intact, pastedowns relatively clean; moderate spotting intermittent and affecting plates; light offsetting to blank opposing pages; nos. 9-12 with matching short closed edge tears and lower marginal puncture, no. 9 the worst off with significant creases; nos. 38, 39 with diagonal margin crease; overall what remains is about very good). Nicely printed - the text in letterpress - the plates in sensitively rendered halftones. Reference: Roth, "The Book of 101 Books", pp.52-53; Parr / Badger, "The Photobook", Vol. I, p.124) While it is of course unfortunate that this most important 20th century rarity is far from complete, it is plausible that someone may find it to be of some usefulness nonetheless.
