        A Room of One's Own

      New York; London: The Fountain Press; The Hogarth Press, 1929. First edition, no. 419 of 492 copies, signed by the author in violet ink on the half-title. [viii], 162 pp. Tall 8vo. Maroon cloth, untrimmed. Spine slightly sunned, some uneven toning of cloth, a few small spots to cloth, still a near fine copy. Housed in a custom quarter morocco box. First edition, no. 419 of 492 copies, signed by the author in violet ink on the half-title. [viii], 162 pp. Tall 8vo. "A WOMAN MUST HAVE MONEY AND A ROOM OF HER OWN ..." Signed first edition of Woolf's seminal essay on women and writing, a classic feminist text. "A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction," said Woolf, "and that, as you will see, leaves the great problem of the true nature of woman and the true nature of fiction unsolved." Woolf's "aim was to establish a woman's tradition, recognizable by its circumstances, subject-matter, and its distinct problems... A Room of One's Own charted this vast territory with an air of innocent discovery which itself sharpens the case against induced ineffectiveness and ignorance that for so long clouded the counter-history of women" (Gordon, 182). "Woolf is brilliantly persuasive when she ridicules the power bias of male history narrowing in on war and kings with golden teapots on their heads. A counter-history waits in the wings: the untried potentialities of women, nurtured but unspoilt in women's colleges, who are not to be imitation men but are to think back 'through their mothers'" (ODNB). Printed in the U.S. by Robert Josephy and published on October 21, 1929, this edition preceded the English edition (both trade and signed) by three days. Woolmer 215A; Kirkpatrick A12a

        Eigh. Brief mit Unterschrift.

      Baden bei Wien 15 11 1929 - 2 Seiten, kl-4. - An den ukrainischen Dirigenten Nikolai Malko (1883-1961). "Mein sehr verehrter, lieber Meister Malko; vielen Dank für die 'Teppiche'. Ich hatte große Freude. - Ja, Prof. Knappertsbusch lässt Sie sehr schön grüßen - den lieben Nikolai - wie er sagte. Ich war jetzt in München. Baron Franckenstein dirigierte meine 'Weihnachten'. Kolossaler Erfolg. Ein Tag danach 'Švanda'. Total ausverkauft. Und jetzt muß ich nach Berlin zur Uraufführung in der Berliner Staatsoper fahren (29. ds.). Ich habe nicht vergeßen, daß Sie mir versprochen haben mich mit Ihrer gnädigen Frau zu besuchen. Haben Sie nicht vergeßen? / Heute möchte ich Sie sehr bitten die 'Weihnachten' in Wien zu dirigieren. Man spricht und schreibt über mich in Wien fortwährend, doch keine Note ist von mir gespielt. Und meine Wiener Freunde kennen von mir eigentlich keine Note. Das ist ja für mich keine Konzession, Sie darum zu bitten - Sie wißen gut, wie ich Sie schätze. Und das können Sie mir nicht absagen. ich hätte gerade jetzt große Freude, wenn Sie es tun. / Also, mein lieber Meister, seien Sie recht gesund (nicht wie in Praha). Ich habe die tschechische Presse gelesen: fabelhafter Erfolg. Aber nicht vergeßen: Lassen Sie sich gut bezahlen. Ich küße Ihren gnädigen Frau beide Hände und bin mit den besten Grüßen Ihr sehr ergebener Jaromír Weinberger .". - Empfängervermerk in Bleistift. Der mit seiner Märchenoper "Švanda dudák" (Schwanda der Dudelsackpfeifer, Uraufführung 1927) weltweit erfolgreiche tschechische Komponist lebte seit 1929 abwechselnd in Baden bei Wien (Germergasse 47) und in Prag. Als Jude emigrierte er nach dem Anschluss in die USA, wo er 1948 die Staatsbürgerschaft erhielt. Nikolai Malko (1883-1961), Dirigent der St. Petersburger Philharmoniker, setzte sich 1929 mit seiner Frau in den Westen ab und hielt sich zunächst vorwiegend in Wien, Prag und Kopenhagen auf. "Vánoce" (Weihnachten) ist eine Komposition für großes Orchester und Orgel und wurde besonders in der Tschechoslowakei sehr populär. Hans Knappertsbusch dirigierte 1931 in München die Uraufführung von Weinbergers Oper "Milovaný hlas" (Die geliebte Stimme). - Briefe Weinbergers tauchen nur selten im Handel auf.

Illustrated by Potter with 6 color plates and 20 in b/w, plus 42 smaller vignettes within the text. 225 pages. 8vo, original green cloth with inset color pictorial label (one small abrasion partially degrading the "e" in "Beatrix"). Philadelphia: David McKay, (1929). Limited first American edition -- number 99 of only 100 copies, with limitation and signature on a thin parchment leaf. A clean, tight and near fine copy. This is the last of Potter's major works. She had finished the Peter Rabbit series, and was writing only for her own amusement, but was persuaded by the Philadelphia publisher Alexander McKay that she should write again for the public. Potter decided to target only the American market with this work, worried that the stories involved were too personal or too local to the Lake District for the British public. Alongside the American trade edition, a run of 100 copies were produced separately for her American friends and as gifts to be distributed at the discretion of the publisher, each with a limitation sheet signed by the author, and this is one of those extremely scarce autographed editions. It is the only limited/signed edition of any Beatrix Potter story ever produced. See Linder, "The Writings of Beatrix Potter," pp. 292-305. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Premier semestre.

      Bruxelles Editions de la revue Varietes 1929 - Limited edition. 4to (30 x 20 cm). 4 original photographs with tissue guards, all captioned, text on green paper, justification page. Soft wrappers in green iridescent calf, ovoid eye in silver calf with '1929' in dark grey curved figures in relief bordered with large false eyelash, binders mark [Jean de Gonet, 2003) on upper cover, navy blue suede endpapers, housed in black box with navy blue suede lining, silver lettered on calf spine. A very rare erotic work in a magnificent binding by Jean de Gonet. A year after its creation in 1928, the Belgian magazine Variétés began to experience financial difficulties. Then-director Paul-Gustave Van Hecke, who had done a great deal to promote the work of Belgian avant-garde artists, decided that the best way to save the magazine would be to publish an erotic book featuring his own poetry. Thus the present work, which contains four original pornographic photographs by Man Ray, each captioned with a season and accompanied by the poetry of Benjamin Peret and Louis Aragon, was born. In one of the scenes, the woman depicted is clearly Man Ray's lover, Kiki de Montparnasse. The 1929 edition is extremely rare, as many copies were seized and destroyed by French customs officers on their delivery to Paris. The present copy was displayed as part of the Tate Modern's exhibition Surrealism: desire unbound in 2001, then at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2002 (p. 336 in the exhibition catalogue), though it had yet to be bound at that time. This copy on green paper is probably unique, as it was not included in the justification print run, which was limited to 215 copies. P. Pia, Les Livres de l'enfer, II, col. 868. -- M. Parr et G.
