        The Bridge

      New York: Horace Liveright. (1930). First. First American edition, preceded by the very limited French edition. Photograph by Walker Evans. Fine in a very good, spine-faded dustwrapper with a couple of internally repaired short tears, in custom cloth chemise and quarter morroco slipcase. Inscribed by the poet: "For Tom Smith with best wishes, Hart Crane." This edition was extensively revised and corrected following the first privately printed edition of 275 copies published by the Black Sun Press in Paris three months earlier. Smith was the editor-in-chief for the publisher Horace Liveright to whom, some evidence exists, Crane turned to when he was short on funds. Smith picked a succession of bestsellers for Liveright beginning with Hendrick Van Loon's The Story of Mankind (1921). Equally important, he selected up-and-coming writers Eugene O'Neill (Gold: A Play in Four Acts), Ernest Hemingway (In OurTime), William Faulkner (Soldier's Pay), T.S. Eliot (The Waste Land), Sherwood Anderson (Windy McPherson's Son), and Hart Crane (The Bridge). He also edited Dreiser's An American Tragedy. As Manuel Komroff wrote in his tribute to Smith and to his lasting influence on American literature: "Here was born a new American renaissance. All literature was changed and the relation between literature and the great American public was also changed ... much of this change was due to Tom Smith ... No one literary man in America has to his credit so much and no one literary man has carried this load with such humble modesty ..." (The Book of Tom Smith. A Biblio-Epitaph. Privately Printed, 1942). The relationship between Liveright and Smith inspired Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur to co-write and co-direct the 1935 film The Scoundrel (for which they won an Academy Award for their screenplay). One of the highspots of 20th Century poetry, rare signed, and with an excellent association. Connolly 100. .

        Original crayon drawing signed ("Orlik").

      [Berlin, 1930]. - 4to. 1 p. on a leaf of quadrille paper.

In this instance the initial lines are in red, and Orlik has completed the image - the head of a man wearing a brimmed hat - in black. - Folded in half horizontally, with some rumpling along the right edge.

He founded the weekly publication The Israelite and for many years thereafter wrote most of its articles as well as historical works and popular novels. In post Civil War America he was the best-known Jew and a well-regarded leader in American liberal religious circles. He believed that in time Judaism would become the religion of all enlightened men, but first it had to be modernized, democratized and most importantly, Americanized.

        A Service / in Memory of / Alice Freeman Palmer + The Life of Alice Freeman Palmer + A Marriage Cycle + The Autobiography of a Philosopher

      1903, 1908, 1915, 1930 - A collectors set of FOUR BOOKS with inscriptions and laid in card. This is a collection of four books that sets forth in documents and the books themselves the life and the love shared by George Herbert Palmer and Alice Freeman Palmer. Often it recalls the great stories of the love between intellectuals from Aphasia and Pericles, through Abelard and Eloise, and beyond to Sartre and DeBeauvior, but all of this in a uniquely American nineteenth century style. These works and documents reflect the times and the great academics of Europe and America who came together in the so-called "Classical Age" of American philosophy. The collection begins with the death of Alice Freeman Palmer in 1902 and eventually we are taken forward to May 1945 when memories of the Palmers are slipping into the culture's unconsciousness. The remarkable book containing AFP's funeral service with the presentation card of GHP and the inlaid letter from a recently bereaved George Trumbull Ladd begins the telling of the story. Next is GHP's 1908 published biography of his wife which went through many editions and very many issues. The presentation copy here is very rare and contains an inscription to their favorite niece. The third text A Marriage Cycle published six years later contains the poems AFP asked GHP to burn literally during the last moments of her life. The Preface to the book contains his struggle with publishing them. Lastly GHP's 1930 Autobiography is inlaid with a series of letters to their friend Apatha Laughlin dated from before Alice's death to fifteen years after George's death. The editions, the inscriptions and the laid in materials make this a historically unique set of first editions.
