        Ulysses

      Paris: Shakespeare and Company 1930 - First edition, eleventh printing. Presentation copy; signed and inscribed to Martin and Lily O'Connor by Joyce on the half-title: "To Martin and Lily O'Connor, / James Joyce / Wimbledon / Whit Sunday, 1931". Original publisher's teal paper wrappers, lettered in white. Very good, with some wear to the extremities, repairs to spine (see provenance), minor marginal repairs to the first three leaves, and some toning to the otherwise clean pages. Overall, a bright and clean copy. Housed in a custom three-quarter morocco clamshell box. This copy of Ulysses was presented by Joyce to his friends Martin and Lily O'Connor, a wealthy Irish couple living in Wimbledon, London. In addition to owning significant amounts of property in the Wimbledon area, the O'Connors were part of the social elite, and Martin regularly hosted the important literary and political figures of his day, including the Irish novelists Samuel Beckett and James Joyce. The 1930s were a tumultuous time for Joyce, with Sylvia Beach relinquishing her publication rights of Ulysses and both his and his daughter's health failing. As A. Nicholas Fargnoli, Michael Patrick Gillespie explain in their biography, "The family spent much of their time traveling around the continent consulting various specialists." The combination of his physical ailment and new publication responsibilities "made Joyce more reclusive, and he became increasingly dependent on friends like Eugene and Maria Jolas and Lucie and Paul Léon" (James Joyce A to Z: The Essential Reference to the Life and Work p.122). Similarly, Joyce relied on the generosity of Martin and Lily O'Connor during his brief stay in England in 1931. Although he famously never returned to Ireland and seldom returned to the United Kingdom, Joyce resided in Wimbledon for a few months prior to his marriage to his long-term partner Nora Barnacle on the 4th of July. Joyce, a known spendthrift, could not fully financially support himself during this period and so was unable to properly monetarily reimburse the O'Connors for their hospitality. As compensation, he offered this copy of Ulysses to the couple and inscribed it to them May 15th, celebrated by the Christian Church as Whit Sunday or Pentecost. While Martin happily accepted the gift, his wife Lily, considered the book the final link of indecency in a long chain of egregious behavior. More introverted and reserved than her husband, Lily was both scandalized by having such a controversial author as her extended houseguest and exasperated by his inability to provide for himself. According to the O'Connor's nephew Edmund Moriarty, Lily was enraged when Joyce presented her with his explicit novel, which was still banned in all English speaking countries, and "attempted to destroy the book, tearing off the front cover." Luckily, Martin was able to prevent her from causing much more damage, and the book has since been repaired. Considered one of the most important works of Modernist literature, Ulysses was first published serially in The Little Review from March 1918 through December 1920 before the first book edition was published by Sylvia Beach in Paris in 1922. Censored for sexual passages deemed obscene, the text was banned in the United States for over a decade before US Judge John Monro Woolsey lifted the ban on December 6, 1933. Notably the first authorized American edition, published by Random House in 1934, was the first widely available English language edition of Ulysses, which was still banned in England and would not be published until the Bodley Head's 1936 edition. Ulysses is a stream-of-consciousness novel that follows Leopold Bloom through Dublin on the ordinary day June 16, 1904. Joyce chose this date because it was when he went on his first date with Nora Barnacle, who would later become his wife; today June 16th is celebrated by Joycians as Bloomsday, which is often commemorated with public readings of Ulysses.

        Der Mann ohne Eigenschaften. Roman. (Band 1 - 2. Dritter Band aus den Nachlass herausgegeben von Martha Musil.).

      Rowohlt Vlg. - Imprimerie Centrale,, Berlin - Lausanne, 1930 - 3 Bde. Berlin - Lausanne, Rowohlt Vlg. - Imprimerie Centrale, 1930 - 1943. 1074 + 2, 605 + 3, 462 S. OLwd. EA. WG II 10. Ebd. v. E.R. Weiss. Mit drei Tafeln. - Ebd. tlw. berieben u. stockfleckig, Bd. 2. auch etw. fleckig; innen gut, leichte Gbrsp. Besitzsign. a. V. (Bd. 2 u. 3). - Musil, (1880 - 1942), begann 1897 ein Studium an der technischen Militärakademie in Wien und schloß es 1901 in Brünn ab. Nach dem Examen als Maschinenbauingenieur und dem Militärdienst arbeitete er 1902/03 als Volontär an der TH Stuttgart. Nachdem er die Reifeprüfung nachgeholt hatte, wurde M. 1903 zum Studium der Philosophie an der Univ. Berlin immatrikuliert, wo er 1908 mit einer erkenntnistheoretischen Arbeit über Ernst Mach promoviert wurde. Während des Studiums verfaßte Musil den kurzen Roman „Die Verwirrungen des Zöglings Törleß„ (1906), der einen jungen Mann auf der Suche nach selbständigen Erkenntnismöglichkeiten in der beengenden Umgebung eines Internats beschreibt. Dieser moderne 'Bildungsroman' ist der einzige wirkliche Publikumserfolg Musils geworden. Bereits hier zeigt sich, daß die technisch-mathematische Ausbildung und die Philosophie sein Werk viel stärker prägen als die eigentlich literarischen Anregungen aus der Lektüre von Novalis, Dostojewski und Maeterlinck. Bis 1910 freier Schriftsteller in Berlin, heiratete M. 1911 nach dem Übertritt zur evang. Konfession die Malerin Martha Marcovaldi-Heimann in Wien, wo er bis 1914 Bibliothekar an der TH war. Er entwickelte eine rege journalistische und publizistische Tätigkeit und war im Ersten Weltkrieg zum Teil an der Front, zum Teil bei der Militärpresse eingesetzt. Nach dem Krieg intensivierte er seine kunst- und theaterkritische Arbeit und veröffentlichte „Die Schwärmer" (1921) sowie „Vinzenz und die Freundin bedeutender Männer" (1924), dramatische Varianten des Themas der Ich-Spaltung. Die Antinomie Männlichkeit/Intellekt versus Weiblichkeit/Empfindung bildet den theoretischen Hintergrund des Novellenzyklus „Drei Frauen" (1924). In zahlreichen Essays, in Tagebüchern und Briefen entwickelte er seine philosophische Auffassung der Wirklichkeit. Der "gestaltlose" Mensch wird erst in den Wechselbeziehungen zu seiner Umwelt zur individuellen Gestalt, in der das "Ratioide" (die Sphäre der Logik) und das "Nicht-Ratioide" (die emotionale Sphäre) eine sich ständig dialektisch verwandelnde Einheit bilden. Aufgabe des Dichters ist es, den Austausch zwischen diesen Bereichen zu fördern. Das Bedürfnis, alles einem -- an sich unendlich möglichen -- Prozeß der Sinn-Entwertung zu unterwerfen, ist das Vorhaben Ulrichs, der Hauptfigur in dem umfangreichen und trotzdem Fragment gebliebenen Roman „Der Mann ohne Eigenschaften", an dem Musil von 1925 bis zu seinem Tod arbeitete. Im Stil ironisch-sarkastisch, unaufhörlich zwischen Denksystematik und Erzähllust pendelnd, spiegelt der Roman eine generelle Erkenntnis-Krise: Welt, Geschichte, Ich und auch das Erzählen selbst bleiben einer sinnlosen Zersplitterung ausgesetzt. Der "Möglichkeitssinn" ersetzt den "Wirklichkeitssinn"; das so erweiterte Denk- und Erlebnispotential erlaubt die Erfahrung des "anderen Zustandes" (durch Inzest, Mystik, Wahnsinn, dionysische Entfesselung), in dem die Gegensätze wenigstens momentan aufgehoben werden. "Kakanien", die k.k. Monarchie, bildet die Kulisse des diskontinuierlichen Romans und gilt als Paradigma der modernen Welt, in der sich nie etwas grundsätzlich Neues ereignet. So ist auch die "Parallelaktion" der Regierungsjubiläen Franz Josephs und Wilhelms II. zu verstehen, die in eine doppelte Beerdigung zweier Monarchien mündet. Trotz zunehmender Depressionen und ständiger Geldsorgen Musils erschien der erste Band 1930 bei Rowohlt; 1933 veröffentlichte er, seit 1931 wieder in Berlin, weitere 38 Kapitel als zweiten Band dieses "radikal endlosen" (Hermann Broch) Romans. Nach Hitlers Machtergreifung kehrte er nach Wien zurück, wo er seine früheren Essays und Prosastücke als „Nachlaß zu Lebzeiten" (1936) veröffentlichte. Nach dem [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Peter Pan and Wendy.

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, n.d., [c.1930]., 1930. FIRST HUDSON ILLUSTRATED EDITION. Published for Boots Pure Drug Co. Quarto. pp. 272. With 21 full-page colour illustrations and many more in-text or to margins. In recent Atkinson's full dark navy morocco with raised bands and gilt titles to orange label on spine. All edges gilt; marbled end-papers. Blue cloth with gilt titles and stamping from original upper board bound in at rear. A spotless, beautifully re-bound fine copy. Hudson illustrated just two carefully chosen classic fantasy books, namely J.M Barrie's Peter Pan and Wendy and Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures In Wonderland. Her Alice was printed in London in 1922, with Peter Pan following in 1930. Her illustrations, like Arthur Rackham's, were both full in colour or simpler silhouettes, and although very little is known of the artist, she was nevertheless a contemporary of Mable Lucy Atwell, Lucy Kemp Welsh and Virginia Sterrett during the golden age of Edwardian gift books. Her modest but exquisite output remains highly desirable today.

        Autograph postcard signed.

      [Paris], 8 October 1930 - Oblong-8vo. 1 page. Joyce is asking his friend Frank Budgen to send him "that leaflet about the Book of the Dead" for "the artist who is doing the preface to pamphlet no. 4". The recto of the card with coloured photograph of the Paris Bourse. - Frank Budgen was a painter who had befriended Joyce in Zurich during World War I. The two shared ideas on aesthetic matters over many years, and their conversations are thought to haveinfluenced both Ulysses and Finnegans Wake.The influence of the Egyptian Book of the Dead on Finnegans Wake is also well established, and the pamphlet mentioned here may be E.A. Wallis Budge's The Book of the Dead, published by the British Museum in 1922 and known to have been used by Joyce. A number of extracts from what was then called Work in Progress were published in pamphlet form, the fourth of which to appear was The Mime of Mick Nick and the Maggies (1934), which included artwork by Lucia Joyce.Apparently unpublished: not in The Letters of James Joyce: Volume III (1966),ed. Ellman.

        Pleasures for Little People. [Text Englisch].

      Ohne Ort, ohne Drucker (um 1930). Leporello mit acht kartonstarken Blättern. durch Leinenstreifen verbunden, Groß-Oktav, 28,2 x 22,8 cm. (vorne und hinten leicht berieben und in den Kanten etwas bestoßen, sonst innen außergewöhnlich frisch und insgesamt sehr gut erhalten) Äußerst selten! Das Faltbilderbuch der böhmisch-jüdischen Künstlerin Anny Engelmann (Pseudonym \"Suska\", Olmütz 1897 - Maly Trostinec 1942) enthält 14 Illustrationen von Kindern mit Tieren (davon eine mit Storch doppelt, dafür fehlt Mädchen mit Dackel). Die Bilder des Vorder- und Hinterdeckels stammen von Frederick \"Fred\" Spurgin (1882-1968), einem namhaften Postkartenillustrator, eventuell stammen von ihm auch die Kinderreime unter den Bildern von Anny Engelmann. Der einzige Hinweis auf den Hersteller resp. Verleger ist ein \"P. 45\" auf dem Vorderdeckel. Über KVK konnten wir weltweit kein einziges Exemplar nachweisen. Denkbar wäre eine Verbindung mit dem - bisher wohl weitgehend unerforschten - jüdisch-deutschen Kinderbuch-Verlag G.

        THE SCARAB MURDER CASE.

      Charles Scribner's Sons, 1930., 1930. First edition. This is the so-called "First Issue" with only a single date (1930) on the copyright page. Otto Penzler in his Descriptive Bibliography on S. S. Van Dine says "The capital letter "A" must appear on the copyright page. The "A" was dropped from all subsequent printings, the method by which Scribner's identified its first printings from 1930 to 1972." Fine, bright, tight copy with all lettering on the cloth bright and un-chipped, in a fine dust jacket with two tiny closed tears at head of spine. Philo Vance's elaborate murder investigation takes place in a museum of Egyptology. There is a great deal of material on ancient Egyptian art. An exceptional copy and certainly this state is much scarcer than the variant with two dates on the copyright page, although the variant state is also scarce.

        GRAND 1930 TRIUMPHAL TOUR. THE GREAT SCENIC STAGE PLAY PRODUCTION OF JESSE JAMES. THE MOST AMAZING STORY OF DARING AND THRILLING ADVENTURE EVER PRODUCED ON THE STAGE. THIS IS NOT A MOVING PICTURE BUT A 4 ACT STAGE PLAY WITH VAUDEVILLE SPECIALTIES BETWEEN EACH ACT

      Erie, Pa.: Erie Litho. & Ptg. Co., 1930. Very light edge wear. Near fine. An excellent broadsheet advertising a touring 1930 stage production of the life and exploits of legendary outlaw Jesse James. This production was mounted as the Great Depression was deepening, and the treatment of James in the text anticipates the public's fascination with depression-era outlaws such as John Dillinger, Bonnie and Clyde, Ma Barker, and "Baby Face Nelson." James is called "the most interesting character American history has furnished," and it is noted that "thousands of people...were in sympathy with [the James brothers] and followed their sensational career with the utmost interest." Parents are assured that they can safely bring their children to the performance: "it will not corrupt the mind of the young. On the contrary it teaches a great moral lesson." The illustrations depict thrilling scenes from the play, including a bank robbery, a prison break, and Jesse's murder by "the traitor" Robert Ford. This broadsheet was meant to advertise whatever local performance was being undertaken, and the name and place of the venue has been left unaccomplished on this copy.

      Paris: The Black Sun Press, 1930. Oblong small quarto. Half dark blue morocco and decorated boards, gilt extra, with geometric rules and angular diagonal panels reaching from the foretips into the approximate center of the boards, and with a small white morocco rabbit inlaid into the upper side-panel of the spine, t.e.g.. While the binding is unsigned, it is characteristic of Bennett Studios. Light rubbing at tips, else a fine copy, enclosed in a matching morocco faced board slipcase with repaired splits at joints and some chipping to the extremities. First edition in this format. Illustrated with six original color lithographs, signed in the plate, by Marie Laurencin, printed by Desjobert of Paris. From a total edition of 790 copies, this is one of fifty copies on Japan vellum (of 420) for distribution in the United States. The famous Laurencin lithographs benefit significantly from their appearance on Japan vellum in this uncommon issue, which does not suffer from the foxing that frequently defaces the copies on paper. The binding is similar to that appearing on a small but significant number of copies of the US issue executed by Bennett, perhaps at the instigation of the US distributor. MINKOFF A39. MONOD 2304.

Vile Bodies, Waugh's second published novel, sold splendidly well upon publication, going through seven printings in as many weeks, and established Waugh as the pre-eminent novelist of his generation, while gaining him entry into the fashionable drawing rooms of Mayfair.

About very good, with some toning to the front board and spine, some light soiling to the boards, spine very lightly cracked inside the front cover, lacking the front free endpaper, front flyleaf with a closed tear to the top half of the margin, some light spotting to the front flyleaf and title page, otherwise bright and clean pages. König, Dame, Bube (King, Queen, Knave) is the German edition of Nabokov's second novel, which was first published in Russian in 1928 under the title Korol, Dama, Valet. Nabokov wrote this novel while living as an émigré in Berlin, and, like many of his earliest works, it was published under his pseudonym V. Sirin, after the mythological Russian bird. Specifically, König, Dame, Bube tells the story of a young German man named Franz who moves to Berlin to work for his wealthy uncle, only to become involved in a love affair with his aunt. Notably, this story would not be published in English until 1968 after being significantly edited by the author and translated by his son Dmitri.. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        A Coast Pomo Girl

      Boston: Suffolk Engraving Company, 1930. Photogravure after Edward Curtis, printed by the Suffolk Engraving Company, wove paper (watermarked 'Van Gelder Zonen Made in Holland'). Excellent condition. A breath-taking image from "The North American Indian", the grandest illustrated work ever produced in the United States, the most important illustrated work on Native Americans, and the single greatest book in Western Americana. Only the double-elephant folio edition of Audubon's "Birds of America" surpasses Curtis in its massive ambition and beauty of execution. "...Because of the singular combination of qualities with which he has been blessed, and because of his extraordinary success in making and using his opportunities... (Curtis) has been able to do what no other man has ever done; what, as far as we can see, no other man could do. He is an artist who works out of doors and not in a closet. He is a close observer, whose qualities of mind and body fit him to make his observations out in the field, surrounded by the wild life he commemorates. He has lived on intimate terms with many different tribes of the mountains and the plains. He knows them as they hunt, as they travel, as they go about their various avocations on the march and in camp. He knows their medicine men and their sorcerers, their chiefs and warriors, their young men and maidens. He has not only seen their vigorous outward existence, but has caught glimpses, such as few white men ever catch, into that strange spiritual and mental life of theirs; from whose inner most recesses all white men are forever barred...." (Theodore Roosevelt, Foreword to Volume I) Renowned for their unrivalled basketry skills, the Pomo tribe inhabited Northern California. Edward Curtis was fascinated by the story of the Native Americans from childhood. His in-depth knowledge of the various tribes increased in parallel with his skill as a photographer during his participation in a number of scientific expeditions in the 1890s. In 1896, Curtis began to take photographs of the Native American tribes (by 1930 he had taken over 40,000 negatives of eighty tribes) and evolve his hugely ambitious plan for a comprehensive work which would illustrate his romantic vision of Native American life before the disastrous impact of European contact. With the enthusiastic support of President Theodore Roosevelt (who wrote the foreword to the present work) and the financial backing of J. Pierpont Morgan (Curtis was introduced to him by Roosevelt), the publishing project finally got under way in 1906. Pierpont Morgan died in 1913 just before the completion of the ninth volume, but his son agreed to continue underwriting the project; between them, they eventually contributed about a third of the $1,500,000 cost. What had originally been projected to take five or six years eventually stretched to twenty-three, finally reaching a conclusion in 1930 but leaving Curtis a broken and bankrupt man. Nonetheless, his grand design was completed, and his work remains as his monument. Cf. Naef & Goldschmidt The Truthful Lens 40; cf. Howes C-965.
