      The Limited Editions Club, New York 1935 - FIRST ILLUSTRATED EDITION OF ULYSSES, ONE OF ONLY 250 COPIES SIGNED BY BOTH JAMES JOYCE AND HENRI MATISSE; one of the most celebrated books of the twentieth century. The Limited Editions Club's Ulysses is the first illustrated Ulysses and "one of the very few American livres de peintres issued before World War II. According to George Macy, who undertook this only American publication of Matisse's illustrations, he asked the artist how many etchings the latter could provide for five thousand dollars. The artist chose to take six subjects from Homer's Odyssey. The preparatory drawings reproduced with the soft-ground etchings (Matisse's only use of this medium) record the evolution of the figures from vigorous sketches to closely knit, if less spontaneous, compositions" (The Artist and the Book, 197). Illustrated by Matisse with twenty-six plates, consisting of six soft-ground etchings, printed by hand, and twenty lithographic drawings, made as studies for the etchings, printed on thin colored papers. One of only 250 copies signed by both Joyce and Matisse (the remaining 1250 copies of the edition were signed only by Matisse). New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1935. Quarto, original brown buckram embossed in gold on front cover and spine from a design by LeRoy H. Appleton; top edge sprinkled brown, others uncut; original slipcase. Minor wear to slipcase.

      New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1935. - Quarto. Cloth, decorated in gilt and blind. Illustrated with six original etchings, accompanied by reproductions of the preliminary sketches. Trace of slight darkening along endsheet gutters, otherwise a fine, bright copy, without foxing to the etchings, in somewhat darkened slipcase with bruises at tips and cracks at joints of top panel. Modern half morocco and cloth folding clamshell case. First American printing of the corrected Odyssey Press text. From an edition of 1500 numbered copies, signed by Matisse, this is one of only 250 copies signed as well by Joyce. A textually significant edition, whatever the shortcomings of its design (by George Macy) and the inappropriateness of the illustrations (Matisse illustrated Homer rather than Joyce, a factor allegedly contributing to Joyce's reluctance to sign the entire edition). "One of the very few American livres de peintres issued before World War II. According to George Macy, who undertook this only American publication of Matisse's illustrations, he asked the artist how many etchings the latter could provide for five thousand dollars. The artist chose to take six subjects from Homer's Odyssey.

        Paths of Glory

      New York: The Viking Press, 1935. 265 p. Advance uncorrected proof, untitled. First edition, first printing. Very Good condition. Originally issued in wraps, later rebound (apparently by former owner) in green cloth with gilt lettering at an unknown date. Clean pages. First page (the original cover) age-toned, foxed, and a bit soiled. Former owner's name on front paste down. A bit of light foxing to edges. At this novel's completion, the author still didn't have a suitable title, so the publisher made the title selection a contest with a $50 reward for the winner. Paths of Glory would be the author's only book, later finding fame with Stanley Kubrick's film adaption. An unusual proof.

        Four Schools

      Obelisk Press, Paris 1935 - Small 8vo, pp. 118. Original red stiff paper wrappers, lettered in black on front panel and spine. Light chipping to spine ends, production-fault creasing to spine paper, a little bumping to corners. A very good copy of a very fragile item. First edition. A tirade against the English public school system, published when its author was still only twenty-one years old. Anderson's targets include Marlborough College (here re-christened 'Knarlesborough') and L'Ecole de Commerce in Neuchâtel, Switzerland. The Obelisk Press was an English-language, Paris-based imprint, run by a Mancunian expatriate called Jack Kahane. Kahane specialised in the publication of books which either had been banned in the USA or England, or which were unable to find a publisher in their home countries for fear of prosecution. Four Schools shares the same cover design and typeface as Henry Miller's Aller Retour New York, also published by Obelisk in late 1935. Anderson's book, dull both in subject matter and execution, may have been taken on by Kahane as a piece of paid-for vanity publishing, printed at the same time as Miller's book to save money. The extreme scarcity of Four Schools suggests a tiny print run. A very good copy of one of the rarest of all Obelisk titles. Pearson A-36.

        NO THANKS

      New York: The Golden Eagle Press, 1935. Book. Hardcover. First Edition. New York: The Golden Eagle Press, 1935. First trade edition, limited to 900 copies printed on Ricardi Japanese paper. 5 3/4" x 7 1/2", [80] pp. Seventy poems, including the famous grasshopper poem and other examples of the poet's most challenging typographical experiments. The oblong format permits the spatial arrangement of the longer poems to be preserved intact, running onto the next page without a break. Among the best known poems herein are "here's to opening and upward," "love's function is to fabricate unknownness," and the sensually ecstatic "may I feel said he." Cummings (1894-1962) had received a Guggenheim grant in order to complete this collection of poems, but the manuscript was rejected by fourteen major publishers whose names are listed in the shape of a funeral urn on the false dedication page. The actual dedication appears at the rear of the book: "AND THANKS TO R.H.C." (the poet's mother, Rebecca Haswell Cummings, who supplied the funds to privately publish this book). Original beige cloth, with titles stamped in red, blue stained edges, and a brown paper dust jacket printed in red. Two faint spots to the fore-edge. The cloth is lightly spotted along the top edge of the front board. Typical minor browning along the extremities of the dust jacket, with a triangular chip to the spine heel; otherwise very good. Firmage A14c..
