        Green Bough

      1933 - FAULKNER, William. A Green Bough. New York: Harrison Smith and Robert Haas, 1933. Octavo, original tan cloth, mounted cover illustrations, uncut and unopened. $3000.Signed limited first edition of Faulkner’s second and last book of poetry, number 248 of 360 copies signed by him, of which only 350 copies were for sale, with two mounted cover illustrations and mounted frontispiece by Lynd Ward."A Green Bough came out at the end of April [1933] without much fanfare. It was published as a favor to Faulkner by Hal Smith, with illustrations by Lynd Ward. The volume contained 44 poems, most of which were written very early in Faulkner's career and reflect his close reading of Eliot, Housman, Swinburne and Keats. One can hardly imagine that the author of these intensely literary poems is the same man who wrote Sanctuary or Light in August. This was Faulkner's farewell to poetry, and, as such, it warrants a glance. Poetry was the schoolhouse of Faulkner's fiction… A Green Bough remains a fairly accomplished collection that demonstrates a firm grasp on the craft of poetry" (Parini, 177). Twenty-nine of the 44 poems in this collection were previously unpublished and nearly all were revised prior to the publication of this work. No slipcase or dust jacket issued with this signed limited edition. Brodsky 147. Peterson A15.1a. Light offsetting to front endpapers. An about-fine copy.

        PUEBLO INDIAN POTTERY

      Nice, France, 1933. Folio. Text stitched and plates unbound as issued, contained within original publisher's cloth portfolio, upper cover with mounted plate and ties. Slight wear to extremities. Original tissue guards intact. Titles and first pages of introductions printed in red and black, half-titles, parallel text in English and French. Very good. Limited edition of 750 copies signed by the publisher. A rare part set of Chapman's survey of Pueblo Indian pottery, an art which was an integral part of a "native culture, unique among the patterns of the American Indian, [which] had its inception, and had reached its maturity, in the heart of the great southwestern area of the United States" (Introduction). This work is much scarcer than the same publisher's portfolio of Sioux Indian paintings which was issued several years later. The text gives a general introduction to the ceramic art of the Pueblo Indians of the southwestern United States, then concentrates on an overview of the pottery produced in the pueblos of Taos and Picuris, San Juan, Santa Clara, San Ildefonso, Tesuque, Cochiti, Santa Domingo and Santa Ana. This is followed by descriptions of the specific examples of the pottery shown in the plates. Szwedzicki also produced portfolios of Kiowa Indian art and Pueblo art, all published in the south of France in the 1930s.

        História & conquista da Índia pelos Portugueses. Scriptores Rervm Lusitanarvm (Série A).

      Coimbra, Imprensa da Universidade, 1924?1933. - 4 volumes. Folio (29.5 x 21.5 cm.), contemporary tan half sheep over faux crocodile paper boards (slight binding wear), spines gilt with raised bands in six compartments, two crimson morocco lettering and numbering pieces per volume in second and fourth compartments from head, gilt letter, decorated endleaves, top edges rouged, original printed wrappers bound in. Number 115 of 160 copies on "papel de linho numerados e rubricados." The signed justification appears on the verso of each title page. A very good set overall, internally very good to fine. xxxiv, 504 pp.; (2 ll.), 476 pp.; (2 ll.), 377 pp.; x, 681 pp. *** Excellent edition, the best and most complete, of this monumental history of Portuguese expansion overseas. Lopes de Castanheda (ca. 1500-1559) was recognized very early as an authoritative source; Diogo do Couto, another highly regarded historian of the Portuguese East, wrote, "This man (Castanheda) travelled about in India for nearly ten years, visiting most of the places there, and even reaching as far as the Moluccas. He described the things of that time very diligently ?." (translation from King Manuel). Aside from visiting the relevant sites, Lopes de Castanheda consulted documents and inscriptions, and spoke to many of those who took part in the Portuguese expansion. The @Historia, originally published in 8 books (Coimbra, 1551-61), represents twenty years of painstaking labor after he returned to Portugal around 1538. The ninth book, included with the rest of the work for the first time in volume four of this collection (pp. [525]?77; 593?4), was originally published at the Hague, edited by Father C. Wessels, S.J., in 1929. Lach points out, "It is remarkable, when we recollect that no previous writer had prepared a comprehensive narrative of the genesis of the Portuguese empire, that Castanheda was able, largely through his personal enterprise, to provide his own generation and posterity with a factual record, if not a brilliant narrative, of the Asiatic activities of the Portuguese ? And more than this, he was able through his personal observations to give greater substance to his account by describing in some detail the peculiar customs and techniques followed in India and thereby to make more explicit the cultural problems of Europeans in the East" (I, 188-89). Pages [595]?681 of volume IV comprise a valuable index of names and places.The @Historia was translated into more European languages than any other contemporary work on the subject, appearing in French, Spanish, English, Italian and German.*** Welsh 4702. Bell, @Portuguese Literature pp. 190-1 @et passim. Cândido Beirante in Machado, ed., @Dicionário de literatura portuguesa, p. 111.

        Three Cities.

      London: Victor Gollancz Ltd,, 1933. Translated by Edwin and Willa Muir. Octavo. Original red cloth, spine lettered in black. With the dust jacket. Spine sunned, a few faint spots to front board. An excellent copy in the dust jacket with a touch of chipping at head of spine. First UK edition, first impression, the Gollancz archive copy with their pencil-mark to the front panel of the dust jacket. Asch's magnum opus, "the first of his works to move far beyond shtetl and ghetto - though Jews continue to receive most of his attention", was originally published in Yiddish as Farn Mabul (Before the Flood, 1929-31). "Translated immediately into six languages, Three Cities was widely acclaimed … Asch's first bestseller in England and the United States assured the English translation of his later works and their reviews in important magazines". While the Muirs did not know Yiddish, they were able to prepare their own English translation from the German. (Siegel, The Controversial Sholem Asch, pp. 88 & 96).
