GOLDEN COCKEREL PRESS - Geoffrey CHAUCER (1340?-1400); and Eric GILL (1882-1940), illustrator
Waltham, Saint Lawrence: Golden Cockerel Press, 1929. 4 volumes, small folio. On hand-made paper. Wood-engraved border illustrations by Eric Gill, initials printed in red, blue and black. Publisher's niger morocco-backed patterned boards by Sangorski and Sutcliffe, top edge gilt, others uncut. One of 485 from a total edition of 500, this copy number 128: one of the most acclaimed and beautiful books of the private press movement. Printed by Robert & Moira Gibbings with excellent illustrations by Gill (the text from the edition of the Rev. Walter W. Skeat), this is one of the finest works to come out of the Golden Cockerel Press. The bibliography of the press describes this set quite simply as "beautiful books". Publication of Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales followed on from the highly successful edition of Troilus and Criseyde, the first of the great books produced by the Press, which Gill and Gibbings had worked on intensively for publication in 1927. Publication of The Canterbury Tales was regarded as a major literary event and was widely covered in the press throughout the four-year period. It proved a profitable title for the Press and one that enhanced its reputation. Sanford, Chanticleer, 63; Sister Elizabeth Marie, Eric Gill, p. 31; Gill 281; Cave and Manson pp.53-55.

JONES, David, illustrator - Samuel Taylor COLERIDGE
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. "David Jones (1895-1974) produced a set of copperplate engravings for the 1929 edition. They usually contain notable elements of Christian symbolism - the priest with his censer, for example, in this illustration for the wedding scene - but a strong Celtic influence is also apparent in the beautiful, simple elegance of his figures. During the late 1920s, Jones stayed with the family of the artist Eric Gill and became engaged to one of Gill's daughters, Petra. Her long neck and high forehead became standard features in his illustrations of women" (British Library). The Artist and the Book 136; Ransom, Cleverdon 7.

[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).

Mit ihnen schuf Ernst eine völlig neue Bildsprache, eine alogische Poesie. [ ] Der Betrachter sieht sich einer Flut von Bildern gegenüber, die durch die beigegebenen Titel keineswegs begrifflich faßbar werden." - "Dank der Collage gelingt es Max Ernst, wie es André Breton in seiner Anweisung für den Leser der ›Femme 100 têtes‹ geschrieben hat, ›über den Abgrund zu springen‹. Seit 1925 hatte Max Ernst in seinem Werk fast alles direkte Malen und Zeichnen aufgegeben und dieses durch ein System indirekter, halbautomatischer Fertigungsweisen ersetzt. Er ließ seine Collagen drucken, wie ein Schriftsteller seinen Text drucken lässt" (Erhart Kästner, Frottagen und Collagen in Brusberg, Dokumente 3). - Dekorativer Einband in grünem Halbleder mit ebenfalls grünen Leinendeckeln.

Crosby, Harry
Paris: Black Sun Press, 1929. Crosby, Caresse. (x), (32), (vi)pp. One of 100 copies. With illustration from a drawing by Caresse Crosby. One of the rarest books from the Press, and, apart from a copy on vellum of the Rubaiyat that is only known in Queen Mary's Doll House, the only miniature Crosby produced.

Bound in brown morocco with gilt sun device and scroll border on upper and lower covers; nine gilt stars on spine. Housed in a tooled brown morocco solander case. Gilt monogram on verso of front endpaper. Very fine. (Minkoff A-24).

United States Marines]
[Various locations, including Guam, China, and California, 1929. Thirty-eight leaves containing 244 photographs of varying sizes, most approximately 3 x 5 inches, though some smaller and some larger. Each image captioned. Oblong octavo. Black cloth album, string tied; black paper leaves. Wear to covers, especially at extremities. Some minor chipping and wear to leaves, but photographs in nice condition, images crisp. Very good. A fantastic album kept by a member of the Marine Corps band stationed on Guam during 1928 and perhaps 1929. The album is inscribed on the inside of the front cover "Dave Moore," presumably the compiler, though without any identifiers as to regiment, etc, though it seems likely that the band was part of Gen. Smedley Butler's brigade while in China, given the locations noted in the album. Each image is captioned, often playfully, giving a real sense of the compiler's personality. This album documents the life of a group of men in the marine corps band - all but a handful of images appear to be from Guam - going about their daily lives as military men on the island. There are large group shots of the band, numerous snaps of individuals in singles and groups, images of huts and towns on Guam, carabao and natives islanders, island scenery and buildings, one photo of the inside of a church, as well as photos of the men at play - particularly golfing (still very popular on the airbase today) and baseball. There are shots of the main buildings on the military base, as well as tent cities, and the men practicing combat and marching band, as well as numer … [Click Below for Full Description]

Crowley, Aleister
London: The Mandrake Press, 1929. First Edition. Two volumes: [viii] + 284 pages & [viii] + 307 pages. V. I—Prelude, Frontispiece Portrait plus 9 Plates on unnumbered pages as well as drawings within the text. V. II—Frontispiece Portrait, a map, and 14 Plates on unnumbered pages, Errata slip. Colophon in each volume. The original white buckram is in very good shape despite the usual discoloration, mostly near the beveled boards’ edges—a bit more on volume one. The gilt lettering and magic symbol (sigil) on both spines are still quite legible; the bold black titles, decorative sketches by Crowley, and facsimile-signatures on upper boards are clear. [Please see images of actual books.] Top edges gilt; endpapers show light age-toning. Interior leaves of ‘Japon vellum’ are off-white, probably as issued, and remain clean except for a very small spot on the title page of volume one (visible in image); however, my philosopher-father made several reference notes, in pencil, on the rear pastedowns. “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.” As with every book from my father's collection, tipped in at the front is the small, attractive, acid-free bookplate pictured on my homepage. All books are wrapped with special care and are shipped promptly—domestic sales sent with 'delivery confirmation' tracking; international sales sent via global priority, also with tracking.

Envoi autographe signé de Ilarie Voronca : "à Monsieur et à Madame / J. Snégaroff / chaheureux (sic) et respectueux / hommage / Ilarie Voronca". Il s'agit du seul livre illustré par Brancusi.

D'une très grande rareté en grand papier, les exemplaires du tirage courant étant imprimés sur un papier de piètre qualité que l'on rencontre le plus souvent très bruni. Co-fondateur de l'imprimerie Union en 1909 avec Volf Chalit, Dimitri (Jacques à l'état civil) Snégaroff (1885-1959) fut l'un des imprimeurs des surréalistes qui lui confièrent, dès la fin des années 20 l'impression de divers tracts et manifestes ainsi que de plusieurs revues dont La Révolution Surréaliste (1929), Au service de la Révolution (1930-1933) et Minotaure (à partir du n°7 de 1935 à 1939). A la fin des années 20, l'imprimerie Union sera en charge de l'impression des recueils de poésie d'Ilarie Voronca édités en roumain. Le premier d'entre-eux, Colomba, portant le nom de l'épouse du poète, accompagné d’un portrait de Robert Delaunay paraît en octobre 1927.

His best novels record for all time the emotional turmoil of modern warfare and modern life. It is the integrity of his craft, a richness beyond legend, that will forever endure."
