ADELE RICE [MRS OWEN R. RICE]
MOSCOW USSR RUSSIA OAK PARK ILLINOIS, 1929. On offer is a super, historically significant manuscript artifact of early Soviet Russia and American relations being the handwritten journal of Adele Rice [Mrs Owen R. Rice Oak Park Illinois], dated April 10th 1929 titled "Our Trip to Russia"; a member of the American Delegation sent on an educational and fact finding mission to Russia a mere 12 years after the Russian Revolutions. The findings and observations of this group are, research suggests, what the book "Russia and the United States" was based on. The book's first entry of the 185 or so pages of narrative was April 3rd then sporadically filled until the last entry Oct. 22nd which we note was exactly one week before the Black Tuesday stock-market crash. The diary is filled with detailed entries of her personal experiences entries cover politics, delegation business, Russian history and social commentary and her journeys whether shopping for antiques and jewelry or to the many parties. She takes numerous lessons on Russia while also teaching them. She also does a super job providing specifics with names, times, dates including; E. Gordon Fox (head engineer of the group the diary refers to) who wrote 'Russia and the Communist Challenge'; Miss Tolstoy, grandniece of the immortal author Count Leo Tolstoy; the Secretary to Swedish Consul; mention of the funeral of Kutlikoff "The Communist head of finance"; Kshesinskaya Danseuse; Mr. Miller of the Hamburg American Line; Sir Perry (Chief Engineer at Ford Motor Company [this was the time Henry Ford signed an agreement with the S … [Click Below for Full Description]

Princess Catherine Radziwill
London: Cassell and Co, 1929. Written by Princess Catherine Radziwill, a notable Polish aristocrat. She was a prominent figure at the Imperial courts in Germany and Russia. To the preface Radziwill writes 'This is neither an apology nor an indictment of the last Empress of Russia... it is impossible not to defend her from baseless accusations which have been held at her head, yet it is equally out of the question to absolve her from a very large share of responsibility in regard to the terrible collapse of Russia.' This is the first edition of this text. Illustrated, with eight photographic plates of Alexandra, her family and her acquaintances. Radziwill penned many texts regarding the fall of the Russian empire and the revolution such as Russia's Decline and Fall: The Secret History of a Great Debacle and Secrets of a Dethroned Royalty . Bound in the 1980's after Asprey's acquisition of Zaehnsdorf bindery, who merged it with their previous acquisition of Sangorski and Sutcliff. This binding is likely to be Zaehnsdorf bindings, under the name of Asprey. CONDITION In a full crushed morocco binding by Zaehnsdorf for Asprey. Externally, lovely condition with a few minor handling marks to boards. Asprey and Co gilt stamp to front pastedown. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are slightly age toned to edges with the odd handling mark to the bottom margin and a few spots to the first few pages. Overall Condition: Near Fine. [Attributes: First Edition]

1929. Extraordinary Association copy, signed and inscribed by the author on the half-title page: " For Henry Pfeiffer, yours very truly, Ernest Hemingway, Piggot-December 31-1932". Henry Pfeiffer was a philanthropist and uncle to Hemingway's second wife Pauline Pfeiffer. Paul Pfeiffer, Pauline's father, and uncles Henry and G. A. founded Pfeiffer Pharmaceutical Company. Paul left the company and moved his family to Piggott, Arkansas to make a life for his family. This copy was signed and inscribed in Piggott, the family's estate, to his wife's uncle Henry. Ernest's marriage to Pauline and the influence of the Pfeiffer family was incredibly important to Hemingway's life, career, and literary endeavors. During the course of their thirteen year marriage, Hemingway started and/or finished "A Farewell to Arms", "Winner Take Nothing", "Green Hills of Africa", "To Have and Have Not", "The Fifth Column and the First Forty-Nine Stories", and "For Whom the Bells Tolls". Pauline's father Paul even renovated the family barn in Piggott into a workspace for Hemingway. Uncle G. A. Pfeiffer was the couple's benefactor, having purchased homes for them in Key West and Paris, as well as purchasing cars for them, and more importantly, financing an African Safari in 1933 which became the basis of Hemingway's novels, "Green Hills of Africa", as well as for the short stories "The Snows of Kilimanjaro" and "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber". This book, A Farewell to Arms was dedicated to G. A. Pfeiffer by Hemingway. "A Farewell to Arms" also has a Pfeiffer connection with the dramatic endi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Aleister Crowley
Mandrake Press, London, 1929. HARDBACK - A very good or better book, free of any previous owner names or inscriptions. A touch of light foxing to the page block, but the inner text is very clean indeed. The books boards are very clean indeed with the gilt lettering to the spine bright and un-faded. The dust wrapper is a very good example with loss to the spine tips, more so to the crown, with light loss to the corners of the front and rear flap folds. A clean example, as is the book.

JONES, David (1895-1974), illustrator - Samuel Taylor COLERIDGE (1772-1734)
Bristol: Douglas Cleverdon for the Fanfare Press, 1929. 4to (315 x 248 mm; 12 1/4 x 10 inches). 10 copper-engraved plates by Jones. Original quarter gilt-lettered cream cloth, green boards. Spine slightly soiled, light wear at extremities. LIMITED EDITION, number 265 of 480 total copies. Coleridge's poem had haunted Jones since his childhood. "Though but little known as an engraver in the 1920's, he was to be an inspired choice, and undertook his commission with great seriousness and devotion. From the first, Jones saw his task as not one of simple illustration, but as the attempt to realise in visual terms the symbolic imagery arisen from the deeps of Coleridge's imagination. Jones tells us that between 150 and 200 preliminary drawings were made in response to the commission" (Peter Larkin, "David Jones and the Ancient Mariner," in: The Coleridge Bulletin Conference Issue, [unnumbered] July 1996, pp. 2-20). In 1964, while working on the foreword to a new edition, Jones wrote to the art critic Kenneth Clark, "it was quite a business finding a copper-plate printer [in 1929]. However we found one. Even in 1929 it was becoming difficult because printing from copper-plates had of course ceased as a normal means of reproduction years before then. And as you know the process is totally different from wood-block printing. I wouldn't be surprised if very soon it will be impossible to get copper-plate engravings printed" (quoted in Thomas Dilworth, "Letters from David Jones to Kenneth Clark," in: The Burlington Magazine 142, no. 1165 (2000), p. 223). The plate at right is the fourth … [Click Below for Full Description]

Virginia Woolf
England: Hogarth Press, 1929. Please review description and photos carefully. PLEASE NOTE, DELIVERY SERVICE MAY BE POSSIBLE, SEE BELOW. January 25th is Virginia Woolf's birthday. Still missing you, dear woman. If you desire to own a profound bit of literary history, you have an opportunity here with this First Edition of Virginia Woolf's A ROOM OF ONE'S OWN. If you are looking for the extremely rare, original Vanessa Bell dust jacket, this book has it. Only a scant handful of these fragile jackets still exist worldwide--and most are priced considerably higher. Please see all photos for condition. The binding is still very tight and sound. Cover shows damage typical of the Bell covers. It has separated along spine, as well as missing part of spine and portion of top front of book. You may want to consider having the Bell dust jacket professionally repaired, which should enhance the value of the book by several hundred dollars. Please see photographs for detailed views of condition of cover and book. Virginia Woolf, in this small and profoundly important book, shone a light on the artistic life and the particular challenges women faced. The enduring popularity of this book bears testimony to the power of her words. Thank you for your interest in this important, rare and remarkable piece of literary and feminist history.

Doyle, Sir Arthur Conan
London John Murray 1929. First edition. Inscribed by the Author to the title page: "To W.B.M. A poor exchange against Mr. Raikes (who makes horribly for self psycho-analysis), but one of the four may find a mark. A Conan Doyle". The recipient was the author and playwright William Babington Maxwell, who wrote the 1929 title "Himself and Mr. Raikes.", which features a young man constantly at conflict with his own, darker side, portrayed as a separate character. Maxwell was a prolific novelist who enlisted to fight in the First World War and served in France at the age of 50. The book is firmly bound in red cloth, lettered in gilt to spine and front board, the extremities are a little rubbed and bumped. The text block is slightly toned and spotted. Loosely retained inside the book are 4 publishers ads, 2 for the Sherlock Holmes Stories. The dust jacket is the original, it is slightly chipped and rubbed with fading to the spine and a few short closed tears. The book is preserved within a custom made solander box. An excellent association copy, lengthy inscriptions from Doyle being uncommon. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; In Dust Jacket]
