        Poems Edited with notes by Robert Bridges. Second edition with an Appendix of Additional Poems, and a Critical Introduction by Charles Williams.

      London: Humphrey Milford, 1930 - Octavo. Original blue cloth boards, titles to spine and front cover gilt, top edge trimmed, others untrimmed. With the dust jacket. Small white mark to bottom edge of boards, light offsetting to endpapers, occasional leaves uncut; a very good copy in the uncommon jacket, price-clipped, spine browned, faint foxing to covers and small nicks to extremities. With 2 fascimile signatures in the text. Second, and enlarged, edition, first impression. Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844–1889) published very few poems in his lifetime and destroyed many of his early writings in a crisis of faith - he had been received into the Roman Catholic faith by Cardinal Newman himself in 1866, and in 1868 made a bonfire of his juvenilia. It was only decades after his death that, collected and largely designed by Hopkins's friend and admirer Robert Bridges, the first edition of this "sensitive, handsome, and almost complete" collection was published (ODNB). Contemporary reviews were mixed though some were stridently positive, such as Theodore Maynard: "A shy mid-Victorian priest, writing while Tennyson, Swinburne and Patmore led their various schools, was more modern than the most freakish modern would dare to be. He is the last word in technical development." Sales were slow and it had only just sold out by 1930, when this "second edition was called for by the poetry public who were demanding new, difficult poetic voices. Advocated especially by I. A. Richards, F. R. Leavis, William Empson, and Michael Roberts, so that his poems appeared in general and modernistic anthologies, followed by university and school syllabuses, Hopkins had suddenly become a popular modern poet". Uncommon in the jacket, with only two copies traced at auction. Dunne A38.

        "Sky Jumping" - Willy Sluiter, ca. 1930.

      ?Sky Jumping?, aquarel op papier vervaardigd door Jan Willem (Willy) Sluiter rond 1930. Gesigneerd en betiteld linksonder. Afm. 47 x 37 cm.In het interbellum worden de Alpen niet alleen ontsloten als een plek om te kuren, maar wordt ook de wintersport bij de beau monde populair, zeker na de Olympische Winterspelen van 1928 in St. Moritz. De Zwitserse Alpen waren geciviliseerd en zodanig gecultiveerd dat ze de nieuwe wintertoerist konden vermaken.Berggidsen die in het verleden de winter hadden doorgebracht met het in de olie zetten van hun bergschoenen en het oprollen van touwen, bekwaamden zich in het nieuwe spel waarbij je over met kristallen bedekte weilanden naar beneden gleed. Zij kenden onderweg iedere steen en iedere den en zorgden er voor dat gasten aan het einde van de dag weer veilig terug kwamen om zich te kunnen behagen bij haardvuur, gl?hwein en lokale delicatessen. Al snel bleek dat ook diegenen die verkozen om niet te gaan ski?n, toch konden deelnemen aan het wintervermaak en werd de apr?s-ski zo belangrijk als het ski?n zelf. Het duurde niet lang of de stadjes werden buitenposten van de mondaine glitter met bijbehorende filialen van Z?richse banken en juwelierszaken.In zijn tekeningen van de welgestelde sneeuwtoeristen in Davos en St. Moritz toont Willy Sluiter zich chroniqueur van zijn tijd.Sluiter (1873-1949) bewoog zich als gentleman-schilder in uiteenlopende kringen en had twee uitgesproken talenten: hij schilderde prachtige, impressionistische landschappen en haven- en stadsgezichten, en was daarnaast een rastekenaar, die in staat was om in vlotte, vaak humoristische schetsen en aquarellen het leven om zich heen vast te leggen. Sluiters? tekentalent leidde ook tot vele opdrachten voor boekomslagen, illustraties, affiches en ander reclamewerk. Vanaf de jaren twintig was hij een bekend en zeer succesvol kunstenaar. Hij kreeg talloze onderscheidingen.Prijs: ?6.000,- (incl. lijst).

      1930. no place, c. 1930. Folio. Original Hardcover with leather covered boards. Hard to qualify this exceptional piece as Ephemera, but that is what it is. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Dimensions are 45,5cm (high), 34cm (wide), 13cm (thick). St Mawr is a short novel (or novella) written by D. H. Lawrence. It was first published in 1925.nThe heroine of the story, Lou Witt, abandons her sterile marriage and a brittle, cynical post-First World War England. Her sense of alienation is associated with her encounter with a high-spirited stallion, the St Mawr whose name provides the title for this tale. She eventually settles in a remote ranch set high in the mountains of New Mexico, near Taos.nLawrence wrote most of this brief novel whilst spending five months of the summer of 1924 at what is now known as the D. H. Lawrence Ranch, a property which he and wife, Frieda, acquired from Mabel Dodge Luhan earlier that year.nSt Mawr first appeared in St Mawr and Other Stories which, in addition to the novella, consists of two short stories 'The Overtone' and 'The Princess', and two unfinished stories 'The Wilful Woman' and 'The Flying Fish'. All these works were written during Lawrence's stay in America between 1922 and 1925. (Wikipedia)
