        Roll Jordan Roll

      New York: Robert Ballou, 1933. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/No DJ. New York: Robert Ballou, 1933. First, limited edition of 350. Signed by Ulmann and Peterkin on the limitation page. All ninety (90) plates present, all original glassine tissue guards present. An additional print, depicting Gullah women in a foot washing service (page 123 duplicate), is laid in and is additionally signed by Ulmann. This is the only copy I have seen where the additional print is of the famous foot washing image, easily one of the finest in the book. This image was used as the cover photo for a biography of Ulmann called The Darkness and the Light (1974). Like many copies of this book, there was staining to the top of the spine and splash marks on the front board, caused by a water leak at the photographer's studio. This copy has been professionally refurbished, so that the boards are a strong VG+, the water spots almost invisible. The spine is now presentable, a little muted, gilt titles nice and clear (original gilt, not a touch up). Lacking the plain cardboard slipcase. The contents of the book have random edge foxing to about 1/3 of the pages, not touching the actual image. The additional plate is signed by Ulmann and has edge chips and tears caused by the plate sticking out from the book, since it was not bound in. The signed additional plate is absolutely original to the book, offsetting from the image (strangely attractive) is seen on the blanks at the front of the book, No soiling to the rough edge textblock (top edge gilt), which suggests that this book, aside from the spill at Ulmann's studio, has been very well cared for. Binding is rock solid, not a hint of wear. The entire production housed in a custom 3/4 morocco leather solander box with a separate chemise for the print. Please inquire for additional photographs. Signed By the Artist and Author. First Edition. Hard Cover.

        Winner Take Nothing

      1933 - Signed. HEMINGWAY, Ernest.Winner Take Nothing.New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1933.First edition of Hemingway’s famed collection of short stories, an especially rare presentation/association copy warmly inscribed by Hemingway in Paris the day after publication to his close friend, journalist Guy Hickok, "To Guy with much affection, Ernest, Paris Oct 28, 1933." Hemingway and Hickok, bureau chief of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, shared a love of "boxing, horse racing, human interest stories, and tall tales. Ernest never crossed the Seine without dropping in at the sign of the Eagle" and their trip across in Italy in 1927 inspired Hemingway's short story, "Che Ti Dice la Patria," this rare copy also with the bookseller ticket of Sylvia Beach's famed Paris bookshop, Shakespeare and Company, where Hemingway "had a chance to see the first copies of Winner Take Nothing, which had just been shipped over by Scribner’s. He liked the jacket, which he had not seen before" (My Brother, 139). This extremely rare presentation first edition of Winner Take Nothing possesses an especially memorable association in Hemingway's inscription—dated in Paris the day after publication—to Guy Hickok, "one of Hemingway's closest friends in Paris" (Montgomery Review 25:1, 112). The two first met when Hemingway, new to Paris, attended meetings of the Anglo-American Press Club. Hickok, head of the Paris bureau of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, impressed Hemingway with his knowledge of fine food, sports and French wines. "Hickok's neat black mustache was impressive too, and during a visit to Germany in the summer of 1922 Hemingway more than matched it" (Lynn, 122). The two also shared a keen interest "in boxing, horse racing, human interest stories, and tall tales. Ernest never crossed the Seine without dropping in at the sign of the Eagle in the Boulevard de la Madeleine. Laughter was always skyrocketing through the smoke-filled rooms" (Baker, 87). In 1927 Hemingway and Hickok set off on a tour of Italy. "In late March, in Hickok's battered Ford coupe, the two travelers crossed the border into Italy at Ventimiglia, traveling down the Riviera to Genoa In a village 20 kilometers above La Spezia, a self-assured young Fascist, disdainful of foreigners, commandeered a ride Hemingway described the young man in sardonic terms in an article, 'Italy, 1927,' first published as a straight journalistic account in The New Republic (May 18, 1927) and five months later as a short story, retitled 'Che Ti Dice la Patria?' [in Men Without Women]z' Hemingway's chilling glimpse into Fascism also highlighted a comic encounter when "a chummy whore assaulted the uncomfortable Guy Hickok with her obvious charms." Hickok and Hemingway were also frequent correspondents, with Hemingway writing Hickok of his pride in A Farewell to Arms [1929]—"It's a swell book—I'm damned if it's not," and describing Death in the Afternoon (1932) as "'my bloody book' It was a good book, he assured Hickok. 'Really maybe the best one yet' Hickok, who took pride in Hemingway's later success and admired Hemingway's ambition, furthered Hemingway's legend by writing articles about him and his wartime exploits for the Eagle" (Mellow, 346-7, 377, 414, 174). This exceptional presentation/association copy also contains the distinct bookseller ticket of Sylvia Beach's famed Paris bookshop, Shakespeare and Company. "For 20 years Hemingway was a prominent player in the history of Shakespeare and Company To the delight of Sylvia, Hemingway arrived in Paris the evening of 26 October [1933] and came to see her the next morning. 'He and I are good old friends,' she declared in a letter 'He looks fine and handsome'" (Fitch, 117, 341). Ernest's brother, Leicester, would recall: "At Sylvia Beach's bookshop Ernest had a chance to see the first copies of Winner Take Nothing, which had just been shipped over by Scribner's. He liked the jacket, which he had not seen before since he'd had to correct proofs by cable and had be [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Moreover, his relationship to his brother Myachislav has become worn-out since Myachislav had crossed all boundaries between brothers: "[.] We had no family relationship from our earliest years onwards, but now it has reached a level of indecency which is no longer sustainable [.] He is thoroughly an official, and although he knows the situation in which I find myself, he has not left me a single piece of bread or sugar [.] and accuses me of having caused material damage to him by preventing him from marriage [.]" (transl.). - Small pinhole, touching one letter, but without loss of text.
