        ULYSSES

      London: John Lane, The Bodley Head, 1936. First authorized English edition; one of 100 copies signed by Joyce (of a total edition of 1000) printed on mould-made paper bound in vellum. 8vo, luxuriously bound in a beautiful designed binding by Eric Gill of full vellum with his gilt decorations of a bow on the upper cover, and a gilt titled spine, t.e.g. Housed in the original publishers patterned boards slipcase. 766 pp. A very fine copy. One of the most handsome we have seen. VERY IMPORTANT LITERARY FIRST. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. This an extremely impressive copy of the first authorized English edition, signed by Joyce. IT IS ALSO THE FIRST EDITION of ULYSSES PRINTED IN GREAT BRITAIN. The superb binding executed In full vellum has been especially designed for this great book. DESIGNS FOR THE BINDING, EXECUTED IN GILT WERE DESIGNED BY ERIC GILL. The typeface is extremely attractive and very readable, the printing on fine paper makes the book unusually handsome and presents what is perhaps the most beautiful printing of ULYSSES ever accomplished. Along with the text, there are a series of appendices attached including copies of the International Protest against the unauthorized and mutilated printings of ULYSSES done especially in the United States; a copy of the injunction issued to prevent Samuel Roth from continuing his piracies of ULYSSES; a copy of Joyce?s letter to Bennet Cerf concerning the promotion, legal fight and publication of ULYSSES on the author?s behalf; a copy of the decison of the US District Court which was rendered on December 6, 1933 which lifted the ban on ULYSSES and a copy of the subsequent decision of the US Court of Appeals rendered in August of the following year which upheld the original decision; a copy of the forward to the first American editon and a bibiography of the works of James Joyce. ULYSSES can be viewed as the pinnacle of the Modernist movement, and its impact on all subsequent western literature is unmistakable. Such writers as Virginia Woolf, John Dos Passos, William Faulkner, Samuel Beckett, Malcolm Lowry, and Anthony Burgess have all paid tribute, consciously or unconsciously, to Joyce's influence. Burgess as well pronounced it the greatest single work in the English literature of this century, and he is not alone in that opinion.

Briefe aus den Jahren 1910-1955, ed. Inge Jens (1960). It was Bertram's study of Nietzsche that laid the groundwork for the philosopher's ascent into the Nazi pantheon. Bertram's partner was calligrapher and Germanist Ernst Glöckner, in memory of whom Das weiße Pferd was printed; their unpublished correspondence from 1906 until Glöckner's death in 1934 amounts to some 5000 love letters and cards. From the 1920s on, Bertram's poetry became increasingly mythological in its concern with the "nordische Seele des Rheinlands." He was ultimately unable to resist the Nazi movement, though he protested the destruction of the writings of Mann and Gundolf. Because of his close links to the Nazis, Bertram was dismissed from his academic post in 1946. A selection of Bertram's works with an outstanding association, each of the six volumes bearing a dated inscription to his brother Hans Georg: Deutsche Gestalten, a collection of cultural and literary essays, is the Dedication copy, inscribed "in recollection of the love of Ernst Glöckner" in June 1934, just after Glöckner's death (cloth, in dust jacket and publisher's slipcase). Das weiße Pferd, [Leipzig, 1936]. No. 8 of 120 copies privately printed as a memorial to Ernst Glöckner (parchment-backed green boards, printed labels, in printed dust jacket). Wartburg, 1933. Additionally inscribed on the half-title, "Ohne Gefahr keine Rettung" (without danger no salvation) and on the imprint, "Exemplar Nr. 2" (brown boards, printed labels). Griecheneiland, 1934 (parchment-backed blue boards, printed labels) Straßburg is present in the third, enlarged ed., 1928 (marbled boards, dust jacket printed on spine only); Bertram's profoundly influential work on Nietzsche, in the seventh, corrected ed., 1929, 18th-21st Thousand (gilt-stamped blue cloth, printed dust jacket and slipcase). Also accompanying these volumes is Gedichte, 4th, enlarged ed., 1924 (parchment-backed marbled boards, printed dust jacket).

        Negro Folk Songs As Sung By Lead Belly, "King of the Twelve-String Guitar Players of the World," Long-Time Convict in the Penitentiaries of Texas and Louisiana [signed by John Lomax and Lead Belly]

      New York: Macmillan Company, 1936. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. SIGNED BY JOHN A. LOMAX AND HUDDIE LEDBETTER. True first edition in straw colored cloth board with red lettering. John Lomax had the slightly idiosyncratic habit of signing his name right through the title page of his books, which he has done here in blue ink "Sincerely yours, John A. Lomax." Uniquely (no other copy has come to market with both signatures), Huddie Ledbetter has signed his name in full in black just below Lomax, signed (mostly under the title) as Huddie Ledbetter with a big swoosh underneath. This book came from an estate collection in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The original owner wrote her name neatly in fountain pen on the front blank and, underneath that the word "(autographed)" The contents of the book are very clean, no foxing at all. The back cover is slightly warped and a little discolored from water, no mold, no smells. Small crack on the back cover cloth, possibly from when the water dried. Front cover has a similar, very faint stain on the right side of the cover. Oddly, none of this affects the interior contents or the spine, which is bright and clear and nearly free from all wear, looks great on the shelf. Despite the water warp described, the book presents as a bright VG, still a nice copy. The signed title page is completely clean except for a tiny stain on the bottom, possibly a drop of coffee. Otherwise, again, the contents are bright and free of markings, no foxing, no soiling. I have only seen one copy signed by Lead Belly for sale in the last twenty years, and I have never seen a copy signed by both men. Very rare.

Connett, publisher of the Derrydale Press, whose personal collection included Maryland Marsh, the original painting commissioned by Connett in 1934. John Frost is known to have been closely involved in painting the colorists' models for the Derrydale prints of his father's paintings (published in 1933-4) and would have produced the color model for the published editon of the print. UNIQUE AND IMPORTANT SURVIVAL.

Designers included El Lissitzky, Sophie Kueppers, Aleksandr Rodchenko and Varvara Stepanova, and Nikolai Troshin who designed this issue and over forty others.

It was published in Russian, French, English and German. This is the French version. In fine condition.Parr and Badger, The Photobook I, 148-149.

        Photograph Album of a Participant.

      [Berlin, 1936]. - 8vo. Oblong album, leather over cream paper boards, string-tied, silver title and Olympic design to front, twine stitching to perimeter. Contains 56 black and white photographs measuring 310 x 240 mm, mounted with clear photo corners, each leaf separated with webbed tissue guard. Two additional photographs loosely placed within. Some loss to leather spine, verso only, otherwise in very good condition, a pleasing album with crisp images. These images, captured firsthand by a participating athlete in the Olympic games, center around the Berlin Olympic Stadium, where the athletic and track events took place, revealing the photographer's sport. We also find images of runners on a practice course, a high jumper, an equestrian event, spectators, security officials, and guards, some of the latter sporting binoculars for surveillance, others armed with long rifles. Olympic monuments include the Marathon Gate pillars from which was hung the iconic five ring symbol, the enormous receptacle for the Olympic Flame, and one of the sculptures of athletes which today are the subject of discord by some. City streets are saturated with political propaganda flags, whilst symbolic Olympic flags make but a mere discreet dispersing appearance among them. Two views show an airship blimp with the Germany's new national symbol hovering overhead, while a few inner city views show athletes running with the torch ceremoniously for the civilians. Elements of domination, superiority and mastery are captured two-fold in this unusual album of images, first and foremost in the display of a grand competition event of athletic champions from around the world, and secondly, in the less than subtle propaganda that would inevitably pierce the otherwise peaceful images of global collaboration and common ground. Rare to find an album by a professional athlete yet an amateur photographer of these historic Olympic Games. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
