        Wild Apples. With a Preface by William Butler Yeats.

      Dublin: The Cuala Press, 1930 - Octavo. Original Holland boards. With the unprinted dust jacket. A fine copy, with the dust jacket very good though chipped at the ends and corners, and a little creased and marked.

Katherine Tynan (1859-1931) was a hugely prolific Irish poet, a significant figure in the Irish Renaissance, and a friend of W. B. Yeats. This edition of Wild Apples, which was printed in 250 copies, was preceded by the 1926 private edition of 50 copies which did not include Yeats's preface. It is the second selection by Yeats of the poems of Oliver Gogarty, likened by him in his opening poem, The Crab Tree, to "a tart crop" of wild apples. This copy also contains the publisher's advertisement card for Wild Apples laid in. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Malý ernoch [The Little Negro]

      [Brno], circa 1930. Limited Edition. Original woodcut print in black ink on translucent paper, affixed at top edge to cream-colored cardstock. Measures 24.5 cm x 26.5 cm (cardstock slightly larger). Signed, titled, and numbered (3/25) by the author on bottom edge. The image is a close-up of a black child in livery carrying a large glass on a salver. In the background, a small crowd, all facing away, is awash in the light of a chandelier. Helena Bocho áková-Dittrichová (1894-1980) was the first female wordless novelist, and the only woman to work in this medium during its heyday. She was born in the Moravian region of what is now the Czech Republic and spent most of her life in Brno, the Moravian capital. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and in 1923 received a government scholarship to study printmaking in Paris. Bocho áková-Dittrichová's unpublished wordless novel Malí ka Na Cestách [The Artist on Her Journey] recounts this period in her life. In Paris, she first encountered the wordless novels of Flemish artist Franz Masereel, the originator of the form, and was inspired to create her own. Over the course of her long career, Bocho áková-Dittrichová published several wordless novels, along with travelogues and historical works. She also worked as a printmaker and illustrator, and was highly regarded in her native land, though largely unknown elsewhere. This changed in 2014, when the National Museum of Women in the Arts held an exhibition of her work entitled "The First Woman Graphic Novelist: Helena Bocho áková-Dittrichová," and this important artist finally began to gain global recognition. Her work, however, is still not widely available.

        [Original Photograph Album of Children with Polio]

      Chicago: np, [ca. 1930-1959]. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Oblong 8vo. Commercial strong-bound album. Vinyl covered boards. 145 black and white; 4 color photographs verso and recto mounted to 23 black paper leaves, one or two elements loosely laid in. Front cover detached, but archivally mended. Edgewear to pages. Images generally clean, well preserved. A few prints perished. Overall very good. Original photograph album of the Zagar family of Chicago, focusing primarily on their daughter, Margaret Ann (b. 1936), and covering primarily the 1940's. Most prints snapshot in size, though notably several enlargements appear as well, including 4 class photographs between 1942-1950 from the Gompers School for the Handicapped on the city's South side at 123rd. and State St. Margaret Ann was apparently stricken with Polio at an early age, as early as 2 years old according to photograph dates, and her development is chronicled in detail, into young adulthood, closing with images of her in a wheelchair in December 1954. The images between present a rich visual archive of growing up with the disease.

Slim octavo, original orange stiff-paper wrappers, staple-bound as issued: pp. [8]. $12,500.Limited first edition, number 130 of only 300 copies issued, an exceptionally rare presentation/association copy of Beckett's ""first separately published work,"" written in Paris in June 1930—""a milestone for Beckett""—inscribed on the limitation page by him, ""For William Targ With all good wishes Samuel Beckett (40 years later),"" in original wrappers. Famed editor, publisher and bibliophile William Targ, who placed Beckett first in his list of ""top ten"" authors to collect, was hailed as ""a modern Dr. Johnson,"" and often visited with Beckett on annual trips to Paris.Whoroscope is Beckett's ""first separately published workÂ… He wrote it in a matter of hours on June 15, 1930"" in Paris after hearing, at the last minute, of a literary contest sponsored by novelist Richard Aldington and Nancy Cunard's Hours Press. Especially appealing to the impoverished Beckett was the lure of a ten-pound prize—but to receive it he had to work quickly. Having spent months researching René Descartes in the Ecole Normale, he decided the poem ""would revolve around Descartes' curious penchant for eating eggs only when they had been hatched for between eight and ten days; there would be pain as well as humor in it; and time would be there as its theme, lurking scarcely visible beneath the surface. In a letter to Cunard, Beckett summarizes how quickly he wrote the poem. He recounts how he wrote the 'first half before dinner, had a guzzle of salad and Chambertin at the Cochon de Lait, went back to the Ecole and finished it about three in the morning. Then walked down to the rue Guénégaud and put it in your box. That's how it was and them were the days.'"" Only 24 when he wrote Whoroscope, the ""witty, eruditeÂ… 98-line poem impressed both Cunard and AldingtonÂ… [who] sent for Beckett the next day to congratulate him and present him immediately with the prize—in cash. He was delighted at his success and grateful for the much-needed windfall"" (Knowlson, Damned to Fame,118-119). It was Cunard and Aldington, as well, ""who suggested the addition of explanatory notes to the published version of the poem, in the manner of T.S Eliot's Waste Land [1922]. Whoroscope is Beckett's earliest surviving manuscriptÂ… Evidently short of writing paper, or too pressed for time to buy any, Beckett composed (or copied?) Whoroscope on five sides of stationary of Hotel Bristol, CarcassonÂ…. The leaves lack revision or the doodles to which Beckett resorts when hesitating. The poem was individually published by Hours Press in 1930"" (Cohn, Beckett Canon,12, 13n). ""Only a handful of people knew it had even been publishedÂ…. Nevertheless it was a milestone for Beckett"" (Blair, Samuel Beckett, 106).This virtually unobtainable limited first edition of Whoroscope, one of only 300 copies issued, is of particular importance as a presentation/association copy that is warmly inscribed by Beckett to famed editor, publisher and bibliophile William Targ, ""one of the greatest post-World War II editors."" At 22 the Chicago-born Targ ""began to amass what would eventually become a collection of thousands of rare books and first editions"" and he later became the powerful and beloved editor-in-chief at Putnam's (New York Times). On retiring in 1979 Targ founded the prestigious press, Targ Editions. His authors, as editor and publisher, include Saul Bellow, Henry Roth, Simone de Beauvoir, Tennessee Williams, Richard Wright and Mario Puzo, whose novel The Godfather Targ agreed to publish sight unseen after two other publishers had turned it down. At his death in 1999 Targ was remembered as ""a modern Dr. Johnson"" (Independent). In an oft-quoted essay on book collecting, Targ lists Beckett as first in his ""top ten"" authors to collect, and in his book, Indecent Pleasures (1975), writes of his keen anticipation before first meeting Beckett in Paris ""in the lobby of the Hotel MontalembertÂ…the prospect was dizzying, almost beyond my endurance"" (113). At Beckett's request, Targ would later arrange a meeting in Paris between Beckett and Targ's longtime friend, Saul Bellow. Limited first edition, number 130 of only 300 copies issued (100 signed). Federman & Fletcher 5. Interior fine; lightest edge-wear, mild soiling to original wrappers. A near-fine presentation copy with an especially memorable association.

        Two personal photograph albums relating to Catchpole's life at home in the United Kingdom, and to his time at Abadan in Iran and in Turkey.

      Persia, Turkey and other places, 1930s. - Oblong small folio. 2 albums, the first containing 237 original photographs, the majority snapshots but some larger, mostly captioned by hand, also with a loosely inserted pencil sketch captioned "Our first home Abadan '42. Drawing room with Persian rugs", the second containing 52 original photographs, snapshots or larger, and a further 27 images in paper wallet (some duplicates). Contemp. rexine or papered boards. Fascinating collection of private photos showing the Abadan Oil refinery and life on the site in the 1930s. A series of 120 or so images is devoted to William Catchpole's time on the Abadan oilfields near Basrah and Kuwait. Catchpole became a chemist with the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company in 1933, and presumably was asked to visit the plant in this capacity. The photographs of this period show scenes on the voyages out (aboard the MV British Pride, an Anglo-Iranian tanker), life in Abadan (including the horse races), and the refinery itself. A group of 16 images show elements of the refinery, including the "cracking plant", "distillation units", and other features. Other photographs show the docks, and several show flares in the desert. The second album is undated and uncaptioned, though examination of one loosened photograph reveals a pencilled note to the verso ("Turkey between Harida Pasha and Ankara"). The photographs in the album show recreational and work-related images, including boating events, a pipeline, and three of an unidentified refinery. - William Marcus Catchpole was a grandson of Nathaniel Catchpole, founder of the brewing company Catchpole & Co. of Suffolk. The family and the business were based at Whitton, and some of the images from the first album show scenes and people at home. William Catchpole attended Radley College, and further images show the college and rowers on the river; some 100 images in the first album relate to the family's life in the UK.

        A Draft of XXX Cantos.

      Limited edition, one of 200 copies printed on Canson-Mongolfier Soleil velin M.R.V. paper. 8vo. (vi), 7-141, (5) pp. Publisher's oatmeal linen, red lettered to the upper board and spine, though the latter is faded and the linen browned, bookplate of the academic, poet and translator Dudley Fitts to the front pastedown with an inscription to the opposing page with his name plus "...New York 1930 / for review Hound + Horn". Stylised initials to the start of each canto. Slight tenderness at the hinges, though the book remains sound.The Hound and Horn was founded by two Harvard undergraduates in 1927, whose literary work had been spurned by the Harvard Advocate. Gradually the outlook of the magazine broadened from its university roots and it published contributions from the likes of Gertrude Stein, T.S. Eliot and Ezra Pound; the latter appropriately enough given that the name of the magazine had been inspired by a line in his poem "The White Stag". The magazine eventually folded in 1934.
