        Ulysses

      New York: Samuel and Max Roth. Good with no dust jacket. 1929. First US Edition; First Printing. Trade Paperback. This copy survived water damage from fire due to previous clamshell box. Professionally restored and ozoned, but some wood smoke scent when opening pages. Chip to top corner of front cover, fragments of spine covering laid on to new spine, chip to bottom corner of rear cover. Some unopened pages. Some text damp-wrinkling, with some dampstaining primarily in margins (see scan). Solid trade paperback.; Modern custom clamshell box, with leather spine label with gilt lettering. Slocum and Cahoon 19. The First American edition (unauthorized). Although title page claims to be the 1927 Paris printing from Shakespeare and Company, this copy has all the proper points as the pirated American first. Most notably, the list of books By the Same Writer has publisher Jonathan Cape mispelled as "Jonthan Cape" (see scan) and there is no title and author on the spine. John J Slocum and Herbert Cahoon; A Bibliography of James Joyce [1882-1941]; 1953 Yale University Press. Slocum and Cahoon state that about 2,000-3,000 copies were printed by Adolph and Rudolph Loewinger of New York for Samuel Roth, publisher of Two Worlds and Two Worlds Monthly, and his brother Max Roth. "It was unauthorized by Joyce and sold illegally in the United States. Many copies of the piracy were seized by the Society for the Suppression of Vice on October 5, 1929." "Copies ... reached Paris and were imported into the United States as genuine copies. One of these, sent by Joyce to Bennett A Cerf of Random House, was used in setting up the first authorized American edition of Ulysses" in 1934." It is unclear how many copies of this pirated edition survived and it is rarely offered for sale. In 2007, the Modern Library named Ulysses # 1 in their list of top 100 novels. Despite the condition issues, this is an opportunity to own the quite uncommon 1929 first American printing of James Joyce's Ulysses, a highspot of modern literature.; [viii], 736 pages .

        The Winding Stair

      New York: The Fountain Press, 1929 First edition, first printing. One of 600 numbered copies signed by the author on the half-title. Publisher's dark blue cloth, with gold spiral patterns stamped in gilt to the boards, spine lettered in gilt with two red Morocco labels, top edge gilt, fore-edges and bottom edges uncut, purple endpapers flecked with gold and lined in white, printed on Kalmar paper. About near fine, with some wear to the extremities, minor toning to the spine, a few light spots of staining to the boards, minor toning to the endpapers, otherwise bright and fresh pages, spine very lightly starting inside each cover at the spine head, otherwise sturdy and intact spine. Overall, an attractive copy. Wade 164. The Winding Stair is a collection of six poems: "In Memory of Eva Gore Booth and Con Markiewicz," "Death," "A Dialogue of Self and Soul," "Blood and the Moon," "Oil and Blood," and "A Woman Young and Old." Like his previous collection of poetry, The Tower (1928), the title and poetry in The Winding Stair was written at and inspired by Yeats' home, the Thoor Ballylee Castle in Galway, Ireland. The castle is a fortified tower home, originally built in the 15th or 16th century, that is today colloquially known as "Yeats' Tower." In both of these works, the poems contain the central themes of the Easter Rising and Irish Civil War. As Yeats writes in this volume's "Notes," "My poems attribute to [Thoor Ballylee] most of the meanings attributed in the past to the Tower - whether watch tower or pharos, and to its winding stair those attributed to gyre or whorl. What those meanings are let the poems say.". Signed by Author. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        The Metropolis of Tomorrow

      New York: Ives Washburn,, 1929. Quarto. Original black cloth, titles to spine and upper board in red, With the dust jacket. Attractive contemporary bookplate. Spine a little rolled, corners bumped, a few small spots and scuffs to cloth, a few small spots to endpapers. An excellent copy in the rubbed, dulled, and spotted jacket with chips at the corners and ends of spine and a small tape repair to the verso. First edition, first printing of this groundbreaking book of architectural designs projecting the future of skyscrapers and city planning. Rare in the dust jacket. Hugh Ferriss (1889–1962), "the most brilliant exponent of the American skyscraper", trained as an architect and spent most of his career as a delineator, making drawings of other architect's plans for the purposes of advertising and city planning. During the 1920s he developed a signature style, creating brooding, atmospheric images of monumental structures that loomed over their surroundings. Ferris's drawings regularly featured in periodicals such as Vanity Fair and Harper's, and inspired a generation of architects, artists, comic book authors, and filmmakers.

        [Portfolio]: Photographic Sketches by Hodes

      [Los Angeles: Solomon Hodes. circa 1929 - 1930]. Modern portfolio, with 30 loosely inserted mounted images and a mounted hand-lettered title page ("Photographic Sketches by Hodes"). Affixed to the title page is the cover of a small photographic periodical, The Developer of the Los Angeles Camera Club, dated in 1928, with a clipping, presumably from this issue, mentioning Hodes in an account of a photography expedition of the Club to Malibu Lake. The images vary in size, but are all relatively large, most being approximately 7.5" x 9.5". Most are captioned below the image, a couple are captioned within the image. The images show a fair amount of talent, and the subjects are various: bewitching costumed or semi-costumed women, bucolic landscapes, prosaic studies of gnarled older gentlemen, buildings and cityscapes, etc. All are very much of the period. We can find little about Hodes, beyond the bare mention of his existence and that he was born in Russia in 1880 and immigrated to the U.S. around 1916. Our best guess is that these are silver-gelatin prints. A detailed list of the photographs is available upon request. .

        KIF: An Unvarnished History (Author's First Book Inscribed To Her Father)

      London: Ernest Benn, 1929. Daviot, Gordon aka Josephine Tey (born Elizabeth Mackintosh). KIF: An Unvarnished History. London: Ernest Benn, 1929. First Edition of the author's rare first novel, lacking the dustwrapper (no copy of which we've ever seen). The volume is a little shaken and the boards are somewhat marked with edges that are a bit foxed. All that said, still a VERY GOOD copy in original publisher's dark blue cloth. PRESENTATION COPY FROM THE AUTHOR TO HER FATHER reading simply: "Colin Mackintosh/from/Gordon Daviot/February 1929." Hyperbole is a little hard to avoid here in our description as this is the first copy of the author's first book and it is inscribed to her father Colin (d. 1950) for whom she forever gave up the limelight of a public career in order to serve as his caretaker and nurse in Inverness, Scotland for the latter half of her unfortunately short life. Elizabeth Mackintosh (1896-1952), using the nom de plume Josephine Tey, achieved remarkable greatness as one of the best known female mystery writers of Britain's Golden Era along with Agatha Christie, Dorothy Sayers, Ngaio Marsh, and Marjorie Allingham. Although her body of detective fiction is small, its quality is consistently superb, and includes several innovative and brilliantly conceived novels including A SHILLING FOR CANDLES (1936, source for the Hitchcock Film), MISS PYM DISPOSES (1946), THE FRANCHISE AFFAIR (1948, also filmed), BRAT FARRAR (1949, also filmed), and especially THE DAUGHTER OF TIME (1951) which was voted in 1990 the #1 mystery novel of the 20th Century by Britain's Crime Writers Association (in 1995, the Mystery Writers of America voted it #4 all time). Whether one agrees or not with these exalted rankings, THE DAUGHTER OF TIME changed mystery writing forever with its remarkable tale of how Scotland Yard detective Alan Grant solves the 400-year old mystery of Richard III and his alleged murder of "The Princes In The Tower," all while lying in a hospital bed with a broken leg. Anthony Boucher called it "one of the permanent classics in the detective field," and Dorothy B. Hughes named it "not only one of the most important mysteries of the year, but of all years of mystery." While other inscribed copies of Tey's books surely must exist, this is only the second one we've seen in the last twenty years. The other one seen was also under her Gordon Daviot nom de plume which she used primarily in her earlier years when writing her early successful West End plays such as RICHARD OF BORDEAUX (1932) as well as her first detective novel THE MAN IN THE QUEUE (1929). Josephine Tey, as she is best known today, signed herself "Gordon" in all written communications with her editors and her need for privacy may have been greater than any other mystery writer who ever achieved such fame. This reticence is remarkably exemplified here by the formality of her inscription to her own father. KIF: An Unvarnished History, while not considered a mystery by her biographers, is nevertheless a dark story of crime featuring a protagonist who is blooded in the trenches of World War One, is driven by circumstance and desperation to the London underworld from which he goes from thief to burglar to murder suspect. His trial in fact makes up the setting for the dénouement of the novel. This dark book, perhaps the darkest she ever wrote, shows stunning maturity of composition: the very first paragraph of KIF is no less polished than the very last paragraph of THE DAUGHTER OF TIME. This particular first edition was only recently discovered in Inverness and one presumes that, like its author, it has spent little time in the public eye. Housed in a custom cloth open-end case. . Signed. First Edition. Very Good.
