        SELECTED POEMS LYRICAL AND NARRATIVE

      London: Macmillan and Co., 1929.. Blue cloth, elaborately stamped in blind, title lettered in gilt, t.e.g., others untrimmed. Portrait vignette on title. Light foxing at edges, a few spots of marginal soiling, cloth a trifle rubbed and faintly soiled, but a very good copy. First edition of this selection. One of 1500 copies. This copy has the errata slip Wade asserts appeared only in some copies, "though not the earliest." Inscribed by Yeats 19 days after formal publication: "Olivia Shakespear from W.B. Yeats Oct 27, 1929." With a further inscription (in the hand of the recipient): "Given to B.C.W. by Ezra Pound Nov 7th 1938." "B.C.W." was B. Cyril Windeler, whose prose work, ELIMUS (1923), appeared in Pound's "Inquest" series published by the Three Mountains Press. ELIMUS was illustrated with twelve designs by Dorothy Shakespear, Olivia's daughter (and Pound's wife). Laid in back are several folded small octavo leaves of manuscript drafts, in ink and pencil, in Windeler's hand, of poems. Yeats met Olivia Shakespear through her cousin, Lionel Johnson, in May 1894. In the double shadows of her troubled marriage to Henry H. Shakespear and Yeats’s unrequited love for Maud Gonne, they began a close and enduring friendship that was punctuated by at least one, if not two, periods of genuine intimacy. In 1896, Yeats entered into a year-long affair with Olivia, counted as his first consummated physical relationship. However, Yeats’s ties to Maud Gonne were irrevocable, and resulted in the emotional termination of the affair recorded in “The Lover Mourns for the Loss of Love.” Several of the other poems he wrote to her are also collected in THE WIND AMONG THE REEDS. They remained close friends and correspondents nonetheless, and it was Olivia who introduced Yeats to Pound in 1909. After her death in October 1938, Yeats wrote about her in a letter: “For more than forty years she has been the centre of my life in London and during all that time we have never had a quarrel, sadness sometimes but never a difference.” Pound gave away a number of her books to friends when he settled her affairs.

        The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. With ten engravings on copper by David Jones

      Bristol: Douglas Cleverdon, 1929 One of 460 numbered copies out of a total edition of 470 copies. Off-white cloth over drab boards, gilt spine. . Quarto. With eight full-page copper-engravings by David Jones, plus a copper-engraved head- and tail-piece. Printed at the Fanfare Press in Arrighi types. Corners rubbed, minor soiling to binding. A very good, tight copy. This superb edition of the Ancient Mariner was the idea of Douglas Cleverdon, a young Bristol bookseller and later the powerful promoter of poetry on the BBC's Third Programme. In 1926 Cleverdon had visited Eric Gill at Capel-y-ffin, and there met David Jones (1895?1974), then a comparatively unknown young artist and poet: 'greatly daring, I asked David to engrave on copper eight illustrations with a headpiece and tailpiece, for Coleridge's The Rime of the Ancient Mariner'. Jones immediately agreed. 'He was a very agreeable companion', Cleverdon later remembered, 'relishing the humorous, but with an inexorable urge to get a thing right, whether it was a phrase, or a principle, or a brush-stroke in a water-colour. We were all devoted to him' (Cleverdon 1981, p. 16)" (John Dobson on his website devoted to the illustrators of The Ancient Mariner).

        The Crescent Moon [Büyüyen ay] [Signed by Author, and Signed by Illustrator Nandalall Bose (twice) and by Illustrator Asit Kumar Haldar (once)]

      London: Macmillan & Company, 1929. First edition thus. Hardcover. Near Fine/good. A Near Fine Association copy of the first edition in this elegant binding, SIGNED BY RABINDRANATH TAGORE on the title page and ALSO SIGNED BY THE BOOK'S TWO ILLUSTRATORS -- FAMED INDIAN ARTISTS NANDALALL BOSE (on the front free endpaper and again on the frontispiece, the bottom of which has been cut away but in a manner not affecting the illustration) and ASIT KUMAR HALDAR (on the front free endpaper), in a good example of the rare dust jacket (generally worn, several inexpert repairs to the jacket verso at the spine, to the front flap which appears to have come free of the jacket, as well as at the spine ends and upper rear panel, there using a paper similar in grade to that of the flaps --- nevertheless an unusual survival of this rare dust jacket). The book is bound in the Publisher's elegant blue linen with the front board and spine each beautifully lettered, blocked, and decorated in gilt and shows only light wear at the spine ends and board corners, minor oxidation to the gilt of the front board and spine and slight curving to the boards, and contains eight illustrations taken from works of Art by Nandalall Bose, Asit Kumar Haldar, Abanindranath Tagore, and Surendranath Ganguli. "The Crescent Moon" was first published in English in 1913, and was then republished a number of times. This elegant binding was not published until 1929 and this is the first edition in such binding, the eleventh printing overall. Rabindranath Tagore won the 1913 Nobel Prize in Literature "because of his profoundly sensitive, fresh and beautiful verse, by which, with consummate skill, he has made his poetic thought, expressed in his own English words, a part of the literature of the West". (Tagore was fluent both in Bengali and in English. A close friend of Gandhi's -- each man admired the other greatly -- he also was knighted by the British in 1915, but later resigned the honor in protest of British policies in India. Though he supported Indian independence, he urged the Indian people not to view themselves as victims of the British, seeing instead British rule as a "political symptom of our social disease", urging not outright revolution but rather advising the people to engage in self-help and education that would ultimately produce a capable and independent nation. Interestingly, it was Tagore who Tagore who popularized "Mahatma" (or "Great Soul") as a description of Gandhi.) Significantly, Tagore was the first non-European to win the Prize. A polymath, he painted, wrote novels, essays, short stories, travelogues, and dramas, as well as over two thousand songs for which he wrote both the lyric and music. Nandalall Bose and Asit Kumar Haldar were students of famed Indian artist Abanindranath Tagore, the nephew of Rabindranath Tagore. (The publication of Rabindranath's Tagore's "Gitanjali" in English brought the Tagore family international renown and was the catalyst which made Abanindranath Tagore's art better known in the western world.) Bose's paintings are among the most important of modern Indian Artists and he is one of nine modern artists whose works have been declared by India's Department of Culture to be "art treasures, having regard to their artistic and aesthetic value". Poet, author, and painter Asit Kumar Haldar was Rabindranath Tagore's grand nephew [his maternal grandmother was Rabindranath Tagore's sister] and studied under, and served as an assistant to, Rabindranath Tagore, himself a noted artist. Haldar was appointed principal of the Government School of Art & Crafts at Lucknow by the British Government, making him the first Indian ever to be appointed as the principal of a Government Art School, and, in 1934, he became the first Indian to be elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (London). Signed copies of Tagore's works, especially in collectible condition, are quite uncommon. (Our search of the auction records back to 1935 reveals a number of signed photographs and letters, but no signed copies of Tagore's books.) This copy, from the Estate of decorated Naval Officer and actor Douglas Fairbanks whose bookplate resides on the front pastedown, has the added benefit of being signed twice by two quite prominent Indian Artists, Nandalall Bose and Asit Kumar Haldar, each of whose work illustrates this lovely volume, making it a rare book indeed. A Near Fine copy in the rare dust jacket, SIGNED BY RABINDRANATH TAGORE and ALSO SIGNED BY NANDALALL BOSE (twice) and by ASIT KUMAR HALDAR. RARE INDEED.

        Dark Star.

      Indianapolis, IN: The Bobs-Merrill Company, 1929 - Octavo. Original black cloth, white cloth backstrip, titles to spine in black and red, red top-stain. With the dust jacket. A little pale spotting to boards, top stain faded. An excellent copy in the jacket with faded spine panel, a few minor nicks, and a short closed tear to the lower panel. First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Jean Hersholt, a great artist, from the author of this book, Lorna Moon". With the bookplate of the Motion Picture Country House tipped-in above the inscription and two MPCH ink stamps to the front pastedown. The author, Nora Low, grew up in Aberdeenshire but eventually moved to the US and became a Hollywood screenwriter, working on a number of hits in the 1920s, including Mr. Wu starring Lon Chaney, Don't Tell Everything (1921) starring Gloria Swanson, and Her Husband's Trademark (1922), with Gloria Swanson and directed by Cecil B. DeMille, Love (1927), and Anna Karenina starring Greta Garbo. She also wrote two semi-autobiographical literary works: the short story collection Doorways in Drumorty, (1925), and the present novel, Dark Star (1929), which was adapted as the film Min and Bill in 1930. Both were based on her childhood in a small, inward looking town in Scotland and explore similar themes including "the particular codes and conventions created by such a closed community, patterns of surveillance, strictures of public morality, evidence of private despair. They engage with the margins of this world, presenting itinerants, outcasts, and misfits with a distinct lack of sentimentality. Low's work is also striking in its awareness of the position of women in the community: her stories deal with minutiae, with networks of power which operate in apparently insignificant areas" (ODNB). Though Hersholt, one of the leading Hollywood actors of the early 20th century never appeared in a film written by Low, the two may have been acquainted either socially or professionally. The bookplate records that this copy was donated by Hersholt to the Motion Picture Country House, a retirement community for Hollywood figures that, as president of the Motion Picture Relief Fund, he was instrumental in founding in 1940. A lovely copy, uncommon in such nice condition, with an excellent association. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Der Kunstnarr 1 April 1929 (all published)

      Dessau: The author 1929 - Octavo, wrappers, 40pp. With the note „Erscheint zunächst in zwangloser Folge,“ this journal only managed to produce one issue. Ernst ( Erno) Kállai was a Hungarian emigré author, journalist and art critic closely aligned with members of the Hungarian avant-garde in diaspora after 1919, and as a critic played an important role in the evolution from Expressionism into Constructivism, articulating and promoting Bauhaus principles both in Germany and Hungary (where he finally returned with the rise of Nazism). He was published widely in both countries from 1920, eventually being silenced by the communist regime after 1948. Despite its humble size, the articles generated a good amount of response among the readership, notably “Kunst und die grosse Publikum.” Artwork by Bauhäusler (Bayer, Schawinsky) and allied artists illustrated. Worldcat finds this in 7 North American libraries. This copy with chipped spine, creased rear cover, interior very good. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        47 Photographs of Mid-Atlantic Woodland and Shorebirds

      (Delaware / New Jersey). [circa 1929 - 1958]. A collection of 47 mounted photographs by the New Jersey-based photographer Benjamin Hiatt: 46 black & white prints, ranging in size from approximately 8" x 10" to 11" x 14", and one 8" x 10" color print. All are tipped onto artists boards, with some additionally in mat frames, most are Signed and captioned in pencil. A near fine group that features many beautiful close-up shots of wild birds in flight, on the surf, and at their nests: the Snowy Egret, Brown Pelican, Laughing Gull, Black Skimmer, and Piping Plover. Also a series of rare close-up portraits taken in the late 1920s, of a Spotted Ground-thrush and a Great Horned Owl at their nests, and another small set of coastline images. Just over half appear to have been taken in the 1950s in the vicinity of Tuckerton Bay on New Jersey's Atlantic Coast and the nearby Bass River State Forest. The rest, dating back to the 1920s, were taken in the vicinity of Sparta, New Jersey, near the Delaware Water Gap, and Delaware City, Delaware. These include three prints of a Spotted Ground-thrush perched on its nest, five prints of Great Horned Owls, and two dramatic prints of a Brown Pelican: standing at ease high up in a large nest, gazing directly at the camera; and in flight. All 47 photographs capture Hiatt's "ambition to photograph wild birds at home," which he first described in "A Study of Great Horned Owls in the Delaware City Heronry," published in a 1929 issue of the ornithological journal, Cassinia. He also published accounts of his important sightings in New Jersey, Delaware, and Florida in The Auk. A fine representative collection of Hiatt's best prints spanning a thirty year period. .

        The Middle Parts of Fortune. Somme & Ancre, 1916

      London: The Piazza Press issued to subscribers by Peter Davies, Ltd.,, 1929. 2 volumes, octavo. Original brown buckram, titles gilt to spines within double panel, top edges gilt, others uncut, red silk page-markers, marbled endpapers. Housed in the original red cloth slipcase. A few very slight scuffs to cloth. An excellent set. First edition, one of the limited, unexpurgated edition of 525 numbered copies. An excellent copy of a book perceived on publication as one of the most powerfully personal visions of the Great War. In Men at War Hemingway described it as "The finest and noblest book of men in war that I have ever read. I read it once each year to remember how things really were so that I will never lie to myself nor to anyone else about them," and T. E. Lawrence remarked that "No praise could be too sheer for this book … it justifies every heat of praise." The book was published in this limited edition in 1929, garnering informed praise and intemperate notoriety in close to equal measure, and an expurgated edition, under the title Her Privates We, was published the following year. But Manning never achieved fame and it was probably not until the re-issue of the full text in 1977 that the novel received the recognition that it deserved. Manning died of pneumonia at a nursing home in Hampstead in 1935. Extremely unusual to find in the original slipcase.
