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." (Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates in his closing remarks to the Hemingway Centennial JFK Library, April, 1999). Near Fine in Very Good + dust jacket. Near Fine in Very Good + dust jacket.

JOLAS, Eugene, & Robert Sage (eds.)
New York: Walter V. McKee, 1929. New York: Walter V. McKee,, 1929. Twenty-three stories from "transition". Octavo. Original pictorial boards in black, white, and orange, black cloth backstrip, titles to spine in orange. With the dust jacket. Rubbed and a little toned at extremities. An excellent copy in the rubbed and nicked jacket with tanned spine and rear panels. First edition, first printing. Inscribed thrice by the two editors and Jolas's wife Marie on the front free endpaper: "To Harriet & Perry Culley, shining members of that younger generation who eventually 'Transition'. Good luck! Paris 1948, Marie Jolas"; "To Harriet & Perry Culley with greetings from their friend Gene Jolas"; "To my good friends, Harriet & Perry Culley with best wishes always, Robert Sage. Paris, July 21, 1948". The recipients were Perry Culley (1918–2006) and his first wife: Perry was a journalist, diplomat and foreign medical aid executive, who was assigned to the US Embassy in Paris as an information officer in 1945, three years before this copy was inscribed. He relocated to England after his retirement in 1984. Loosely inserted is an autographed letter signed from Kay Boyle, who contributed "Polar Bears and Others" to this volume. It is addressed to Culley at the US Embassy, dated 1 October 1947, and written from her new home in Le Vésinet. In it, Boyle regretfully declines an invitation from Culley, writing "we're just moving into a new house … I'll call you as soon as we've begun to resemble normal human beings again".

Nietzsche, Friedrich (1844-1900). Translated by N. Ajbeszyca [Eichbeschutz](1910-1943)
Turem, Warsaw Warszawa, Varsha, Poland, 1929. In Yiddish. 49, [2] pages. With original glassine dust jacket. 229 x 167 mm. WorldCat: Libraries worldwide that own item: 1. Dionysian-Dithyrambs (German: Dionysos-Dithyramben) is a collection of nine poems written in the fall of 1888 by Friedrich Nietzsche under the nom de plume of Dionysos. The first six poems (Zwischen Raubvögeln, Das Feuerzeichen, Die Sonne sinkt, Letzter Wille, Ruhm und Ewigkeit and Von der Armut des Reichsten) were published in the 1891 edition of Also sprach Zarathustra. Other three poems (Klage der Ariadne, Nur Narr! Nur Dichter! and Unter Töchtern der Wüste) are compositions drawn from those found in Also sprach Zarathustra only slightly altered. Ruhm und Ewigkeit was published at the finis of the 1908 first edition of Ecce Homo; however, it is now deemed to be a requisite part of Dionysos-Dithyramben. In January 1889, during his dementia, Nietzsche drafted "dedications" of Dionysos-Dithyramben to Catulle Mendès, a French poet, critic and novelist, an exemplar of Parnassianism, and author of the libretto to the operetta Isoline composed by André Messager, which made its debut at the Théâtre de la Renaissance in Paris on 26 December 1888, in which he states his high regard for Mendès, calling him des grössten und ersten Satyr, der heute lebt¿und nicht nur heute. Today Dionysos-Dithyramben remains widely unread and is often not understood well enough; however, for some those colorful deconstructive verses represent an outstanding poetic achievement of pure Dionysian philosophy, or better yet, an essential … [Click Below for Full Description]

Descriptive text by Edward Angus Burt. Color plates by the Boston Heliotype Printing Company. Louis C.C. Krieger illustrated most of the specimens. Published ten years after the death of botanist William Farlow Gilson, the creation of this work "was a long and complex journey. It involved no less than four botanists, two professional artists, two commercial printers, one warehouse, and numerous photographers and editors. The work spanned more than forty years and cost an estimated $50,000 at a time when a lavish new house cost less than $9,000" (See Harvard University Herbaria: A Wreath to the Memory of Dr. Farlow. The creation of Icones Farlowianae 1889 - 1930). William Farlow Gilson (1844-1919), was an American cryptogamic botanist, president of the National Academy of Sciences, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the Botanical Society of America. "Farlow's attention to practical botany had a most significant influence on American science. He conducted research on destructive, plant-pathogenic fungi, furnishing some of the earliest, professional papers on the subject of plant diseases. His focus on plant diseases helped lay the foundations for a science of phytopathology.

Si Kaddour Benghabrit, Moroccan statesman, founder of the Muslim Instite in Paris (1868-1954)
Paris, 22. V, 1929. Folio. 1 page. On uncut wove paper, bearing the Schoellers-Parole blind embossed seal, margins uncut. The original autograph contribution of Si Kaddour Benghabrit to the Committee of the World League for Peace (Ligue Mondiale pour la Paix), a remarkable organization formed in 1925 with close ties to the League of Nations. The Committee itself was composed of such notaries as Queen Elizabeth of Belgium, King Carol II of Romania, John D Rockefeller, Marie Curie, and Albert Einstein, who personally gathered the present manuscripts over the course of seven years (1925-32). Among the public figures who contributed to the project were dignitaries from the newly-created League of Nations' member states. 'Rebellion sleeps in the heart of man, may he be cursed who awakens it'. Thus spoke our Prophet. This is still the living doctrine of modern Islam. How could it not prefer the pure and simple joys of peace to the torments and dark nights of war! [Signed] Benghabrit". Si Khaddour Benghabrit rose to prominence under the French regime in Morocco . He is also remebered for his courage in saving the lives of the many Jews during the Second World War by disguising them as Muslim members of his Paris mosque - somewhere between 500 and 1600 people were saved from deportation in this way, and the Medal of Justice has been awarded to the descendants of Benghabrit by the Yad Vashem Memorial. - Pax Mundi.

Notable is an intensive correspondence with artist Alfred Kubin from 1934 until 1949.

" - Kra, Paris 1929, 13x19cm, broché. - Édition originale sur papier courant. Double envoi autographe signé et daté de Tristan Tzara, d'abord à Paul Éluard - « à Paul Éluard. Tristan Tzara. Juillet 1929 » - puis, après avoir biffé cette première dédicace, à René Char en septembre 1934 : « à René Char avec toute l'amitié grande de Tristan Tzara ». Ce second envoi est enrichi d'un petit dessin par Tzara, une main qui désigne de l'index le nom de Char. À l'automne 1934, quand Tzara dédicace l'ouvrage à Char, les deux poètes commencent à s'éloigner du surréalisme. Ils forment alors, avec René Crevel et Roger Caillois, un petit groupe très critique à l'égard d'André Breton et notamment de ses positions sur le Parti communiste. Tzara comme Char quittera le mouvement quelques mois plus tard, jugeant le surréalisme contraire à la révolution.

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]

Ward, Lynd
[New York]: [Jonathan Cape & Harrison Smith]. An original print from Ward's first and most famous wordless novel. Printed from the original woodblock on very thin translucent paper, the image measures 7.5 cm x 13 cm. Signed in pencil by Ward under the image in the right corner, with "Gods' Man-1929" printed in pencil opposite. The image is the first appearance of the mysterious masked figure with whom the protagonist strikes his Faustian bargain. Presumably printed in a minuscule print run as a keepsake from the author and publisher. Gods' Man was the first American wordless novel. Fine. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

JOLAS, Eugene, & Robert Sage (eds.)
New York: Walter V. McKee, 1929. New York: Walter V. McKee,, 1929. Twenty-three stories from "transition". Octavo. Original pictorial boards in black, white, and orange, black cloth backstrip, titles to spine in orange. With the dust jacket. Rubbed and a little toned at extremities. An excellent copy in the rubbed and nicked jacket with tanned spine and rear panels. First edition, first printing. Inscribed thrice by the two editors and Jolas's wife Marie on the front free endpaper: "To Harriet & Perry Culley, shining members of that younger generation who eventually 'Transition'. Good luck! Paris 1948, Marie Jolas"; "To Harriet & Perry Culley with greetings from their friend Gene Jolas"; "To my good friends, Harriet & Perry Culley with best wishes always, Robert Sage. Paris, July 21, 1948". The recipients were Perry Culley (1918–2006) and his first wife: Perry was a journalist, diplomat and foreign medical aid executive, who was assigned to the US Embassy in Paris as an information officer in 1945, three years before this copy was inscribed. He relocated to England after his retirement in 1984. Loosely inserted is an autographed letter signed from Kay Boyle, who contributed "Polar Bears and Others" to this volume. It is addressed to Culley at the US Embassy, dated 1 October 1947, and written from her new home in Le Vésinet. In it, Boyle regretfully declines an invitation from Culley, writing "we're just moving into a new house … I'll call you as soon as we've begun to resemble normal human beings again".

Faulkner, William
New York: Jonathan Cape and Harrison Smith, 1929. First edition of the author's masterpiece. Octavo, original cloth, black and white patterned paper boards. Fine in a fine entirely unrestored first issue dust jacket with the iconic design by Kathe Kollwitz on the front panel and a price of $3.00 for the book Humanity Uprooted on the rear panel, with just a touch of rubbing to the spine panel. Petersen A6.2a. Brucolli & Clark I:121. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. The spine of this title is prone to fading, this example exhibits none. An exceptional example. Although The Sound and The Fury is now considered one of top one hundred novels of the 20th century, it actually wasn't initially received well upon publication. This was mostly due to the fact that at the time Faulkner wasn't well-known as a novelist, although this was his fourth published work. Because he had not had much commercial success with his first few novels, it is believed that the publisher limited the initial printing run to 1,789 copies. It wasn't until his novel Sanctuary was published in 1931 that he started being really noticed as a writer and more people started giving The Sound and The Fury more serious attention. The title of the book comes from the famous soliloquy of act 5, scene 5 of Shakespeare's Macbeth. Faulkner literally takes Shakespeare's words and writes a "tale told by an idiot,"... in this case from the point of view of the members of the Compson family, who are former Mississippi aristocrats who fall into financial trouble and over a 30 year period, many of whom die tragic … [Click Below for Full Description]

Adams, Marcus.
London, Marcus Adams, c, 1929. Folio. 7 pages. Original Art Deco flexible Hardcover in original slipcase. Extremely beautiful and rare original binding ! Two small stains on cover of the Volume. Otherwise in excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. Besides the vintage photographs all being signed by Marcus Adams, he also signed and dated by the Volume on the endpaper: "Marcus Adams - 11/29 [?]". Marcus Adams (1875-1959) was a British society photographer noted for his portraits of children. Adams' father was the Reading-based photographer Walton Adams. He began his career as an architectural photographer for the British Archaeological Society and took photographs for books by the antiquarian C.E. Keyser. With fellow photographers Bertram Park and Parks' wife Yvonne Gregory, Adams formed the "Three Photographers" group in 1920. Based at 43 Dover Street, Mayfair, they each worked independently, but shared use of printing, retouching and darkroom staff. Gaining notability for his portraits of children Adams took the first official photographs of the Duchess of York and her daughter Princess Elizabeth (the future Queen Mother and Queen Elizabeth II). His 1934 photograph of Princess Elizabeth at the age of 8 was used as the portrait for the $20 banknote of the 1935 Series of banknotes of the Canadian dollar. He continued his work as a photographer of royal children until a sitting with Princess Anne in 1956. Other notable children photographed by Adams included Christopher Robin Milne, John Julius Norwich and Simone Prendergast. His son, Gilbert Adams, also be … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ernest E. Mills Joyce
Duckworth, London, 1929. This is the first edition of the log of the Ross Sea Party of Shackleton’s Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition, known as the Endurance Expedition, the last major expedition of the heroic age of Antarctic exploration. This copy was awarded in 1930 as a prize to a student at Burnley Grammar School. Condition approaches near fine. The original publisher’s binding is square and tight with bright covers and only lightly worn at hinges and extremities, gilt-stamped with the school’s coat of arms and motto banner on the front cover. Minor spine toning has not appreciably dulled the bright spine gilt. The profusely illustrated contents are clean, complete, and strikingly bright. Trivial spotting appears confined to the endpapers. The sole previous ownership mark is the prize binding bookplate affixed to the front pastedown, signed by the headmaster, presented to "R. Procter", and dated November, 1930. The fore and bottom edges remain bright, the top edge lightly dust soiled. The gift of this tale is suited to firing the imagination and will of a student. The aptly named Endurance Expedition of 1914-1917 is an incredible survival story of Antarctic Exploration. Led by Ernest Shackleton, (1874-1922), the expedition was to cross the Antarctic continent through the geographic South Pole. Ultimately, not a single step was taken on the continent by the transcontinental party. The Endurance set out in the shadow of the First World War on 8 August 1914, only days after Britain declared war on Germany. The expedition included two parties of 28 members each, Shacklet … [Click Below for Full Description]

Apsley Cherry-Garrard
London: Constable and Company Limited, 1929. Second Edition, Reissued. Hardcover. This is the 1929 reissue of “one of the undisputed classics of exploration literature”. After the 1922 first edition came a 1923 “Second Edition, with small corrections and the omission of certain plates”, followed by this 1929 reissue in medium blue cloth with gilt spine print. This two-volume set approaches very good condition. The bindings are tight with sharp corners and a slight forward lean to Volume I. The boards are bright, the spines lightly toned, the spine gilt distinct. We note modest wear and a hint of fraying at the spine ends and minor shelf wear to corners. The contents are clean with light spotting to the first and final leaves. The page edges show only mild age-toning. All tipped in plates are present. The Volume I front free endpaper features a touching “May 1930” gift inscription to “Harry Botterell on the occasion of his receiving the degree MD”. “Harry Botterell MD” is inked on the Volume II front free endpaper. Edmund Harry Botterell (1906-1997) became a noted neurosurgeon and eventually Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario, where Botterell Hall was named in his honor. Botterell received the Order of the British Empire for his World War II service and was made an Officer of the Order of Canada, Canada's highest civilian honor.

CROWLEY, Aleister
The Mandrake Press, 1929. A REMARKABLE PRESENTATION COPY WITH ADDITIONAL ANNOTATIONS BY THE AUTHOR. CROWLEY, Aleister. Moonchild. A Prologue. London, The Mandrake Press, 1929. £6000 FIRST EDITION. 8vo. Original sea-green cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the pictorial Beresford Egan dust jacket almost completely intact, only upper part of dust jacket, covering head of spine, torn away. Text clean and crisp, flawless. An important presentation copy inscribed by the author on front endpaper: “To Clements Hassell with sincere admiration of a fine artist and appreciation of an excellent friend, from Aleister Crowley, Oct 8, ’32 e.v.”. Clements Hassell is likely to be identified with Hilary Clements Hassell (1871-1949), who was a British painter of interiors, landscapes and some coastal scenes. E.v. stands for ‘era vulgaris’, which is a Latin expression for “common era”. This is placed after the date to differentiate it from Crowley’s Thelemic calendar, which starts in 1904 (the date the author claimed he received the book of the law). On the rear endpaper appear in Crowley’s handwriting some details concerning a two-day schedule, accompanied by planetary symbols. These symbols represent days of the week (Mars, i.e. Tuesday, and Mercury, i.e. Wednesday). Crowley mentions meeting times, the name “Foyle” and “lunch at Grosvenor Ho.[use]”, where it is known he gave a lecture on Magick in 1932: “In September 1932 Crowley was invited to a literary luncheon by Christina Foyle. Christina Foyle’s owned Foyle’s bookshop in London and held a literary lunch every year. This was a small cou … [Click Below for Full Description]
