        The Edge of The Unknown

      New York, Putnam's. 1930, 39. First American edition: 8vo. Publisher's grey cloth titled in green to spine, near fine, minor edgewear and bumping to spine ends, clean and sharp. In an example of the scarce dustwrapper, somewhat worn to the edges with areas of shallow chiupping to the spine ends. Tape reinforcement to hinges and joints of dustwrapper. Internally clean, two bookseller labels to pastedown. Shows very well. Doyle explains his engagement with spiritualism and relates his fiery disagreement with the renowned showman and escapologist Houdini, a sceptic. The book is a testament to Doyle's belief in psychic revelation as well as an insight to the temper of the times. Houdini's supreme skill as an exponent of illusion was ironically the basis for his underhand attempts to expose those 'mediums' he perceived as charlatans.

        Original Illustrations for a Book?

      - 21 original pen and ink drawings on 12 bi-foliums of artist's paper stock. Nine of the bi-foliums consist of one larger drawing and one vignette; three of the bi-foliums contain a single drawing. Some modest soiling, dampstaining mostly in the margins of a couple drawings, encroaching on only one vignette, very good. Each large drawing is signed "C.R. Macauley"; each vignette is initialed "C.R.M."The Canton, Ohio-born artist won the Pulitzer Prize in 1930 for editorial cartooning in the Brooklyn *Daily Eagle*, and is perhaps best known for popularizing the caricatured image of Teddy Roosevelt brandishing his "big stick." He concentrated on book illustration between 1901-1905. Titles he wrote and illustrated include *Fantasma Land*, *The Red Tavern*, *Whom the Gods Would Destroy*, *Keeping the Faith*, *The Man Across the Street*, and *The Optimistic Spectacles*. Among the many books he illustrated were editions of *Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde* by Robert Louis Stevenson, *Romance: A Novel* by Joseph Conrad and Ford M. Hueffer, *Emblemland* by John Kendrick Bangs, and *The Return of Sherlock Holmes* by Arthur Conan Doyle.A group of nonsense drawings, some of fantastic subjects. It is unclear from which book these illustrations came from, although they are almost certainly from the period when he was concentrating on book illustration (1901-1905), purchased by us with other book art from the estate of a publisher. A few of the drawings are similar, and may be studies for *Emblemland* (images of John Bull and another of a talking oyster), but we have been unable at this date to locate some of his other works that might contain the drawings. Provenance on request.

        Wolf Lies Down - Apsaroke

      Suffolk Engraving Company, Boston 1930 - 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) A member of the Never Packs Game clan, Wolf Lies Down was a Mountain Crow leader, who fought against the Sioux in the Battle of Pryor Creek near Billings, Montana in 1860. According to Curtis, in "stature and in vigor the Apsaroke, or Crows, excelled all other tribes of the Rocky Mountain region, and were surpassed by none in bravery and in devotion to the supernatural forces that gave them strength against their enemies." (Volume IV) Originally planters from the upper Midwest, they inhabited the Plains and Prairies region of the United States, where they became hunters and skilled horsemen. 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. Photogravure after Edward Curtis, printed by the Suffolk Engraving Company, Japon paper. Very good condition apart from a mild surface abrasion in the top left corner of the plate mark.

        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. .

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. To this end he became the father of Reform Judaism by founding its Union of American Hebrew Congregations, Hebrew Union College and the Central Conference of American Rabbis.&

      Farrar and Rinehart, New York 1930 - First edition. Corner of the front fly a little torn, else a nice, near fine copy lacking the dustwrapper. A pleasing copy of the author's exceptionally uncommon fourth book, and considered the finest of her "Ohio" novels. Signed by the author: "Love, Dawn."
