        TYPED LETTER, SIGNED, ABOUT THOMAS PAINE AND EPSTEIN'S BUST

      London. 9 October 1936.. One full page, on quarto sheet of letterhead. Ca. 300 words. Folded for mailing, a couple small smudges, else very good. Oversize half morocco clamshell case. An excellent letter to Curtis Freshel, principal of the Bakon-Yeast Corporation, and second husband of Shaw's colleague and friend, pacifist and vegetarian activist Emeral (i.e. M.R.L.) Freshel. Shaw advises the recipient of some errors in addressing that have caused Freshel's letters to him to stray, and responds to an implicit suggestion that Freshel is considering undertaking some form of tribute to Thomas Paine: " ... you must not think of taking him on single- handed. You would have the precedent of the church 'erected to God by Voltaire'; and there is no reason why there should not be a monument 'erected to Thomas Paine by Curtis Freshel'; but it would cost too much ... To write an essay on T.P. I should have to read all his works and brush up on my knowledge of the French and American revolutions; and to do all that before January would be impossible. Besides, I think it would be a mistake to make the occasion one for a rally of notorious freethinkers when the danger that threatens is a rally of the Fundamentalists against the Arch Infidel. Get some good Christians into the field." He continues at length about Epstein's bust, the number of castings and their disposition, noting: ""It is a very remarkable piece of sculpture, like all Epstein's work; and it is unmistakably like the prehistoric monster from whom I am descended. But the copy destined for me has never reached me; and I have made no enquiries about it because my wife, who has seen a press picture of it, much prefers the flattering and beautifully refined bust by the Hungarian sculptor De Strobl ...." Signed: "Always yours, G. Bernard Shaw."

Upper right corner of back cover slightly soiled (with a series of short, thin, faint parallel lines about two to three inches in length descending from the top edge), spine slightly and evenly sunned to a pleasant light brownish-gray, trivial internal imperfections, otherwise very fine.

Sangorski & Sutcliffe, one of the premier English bookbinders, did a considerable amount of work for American booksellers, including Brentano's, and while the design here is restrained, the quality of the leather used and the precision of the finishing are first rate.

        ULYSSES. Signed 1/100 Copies

      London: The Bodley Head, 1936 James Joyce. ULYSSES. Signed 1/100 Copies. London: John Lane The Bodley Head, 1936. First Edition printed in England. A fine example of this, the most beautiful edition of Ulyssses ever published, designed by Eric Gill with Homeric Bow in gilt on the cover. Quarto, blonde calf vellum board printed on mould-made paper - number 38 of only 100 copies signed by Joyce in blue/black ink on the limitations page. [Total edition 1000 copies with 900 in cloth]. With the Bodley Head's printed announcement of publication laid in; in the original patterned paper slipcase with a bit of foxing & soiling to the printed numbered paper label, showing some rubbing at the slipcase edges - near fine considering it's endemic fragility. A very nice lovely example. Joyce's biographer Richard Ellman observed, "In his earlier books Joyce forced modern literature to accept new styles, new subject matter, new kinds of plot and characterization. In his last book he forced it to accept a new area of being and a new language. What is ultimately most impressive is the sureness with which, in the midst of such technical accomplishments, he achieved his special mixture of attachment and detachment, of gaiety and lugubriousness. He was no saturnine artificer contriving devices, but one of life's celebrants, in bad circumstances cracking good jokes, foisting upon ennuis and miseries his comic vision."

        THE WHITE SAVANNAHS. Signed

      Toronto: MacMillan, 1936 THE DEDICATION COPY OF THE FIRST STUDY OF CANADIAN-LITERATURE FROM A MODERNIST POINT OF VIEW. Collin, W. E. THE WHITE SAVANNAHS. Toronto: MacMillan, Toronto, 1936. First Edition. Green cloth. (X), 288pp. A fine lovely copy in a remarkable dustwrapper. THE DEDICATION COPY, inscribed: "from Edwin / June, 1936" after the printed dedication: " For Louise", the author's wife. This important volume has the distinction of being both "the first book length work on English-Canadian literature written from a purely critical standpoint" (Germaine Warkentin) and the first book of modernist criticism in English-Canadian Lit. containing essays on Lampman, Pickthall, Pratt, Kennedy, Klein, Smith, Scott, Le Franc, and Livesay originally published as a series in the Canadian Forum and in the University of Toronto Quarterly. Collin apparently titled the collection The White Savannahs because he was living in London Ontario at the time, which he felt was so devoid of culture it was much like living in a desert. [William Edwin Collin, literary critic (b at Oakenshaw, Eng 9 May 1893; d at London, Ont 21 Dec 1984). The White Savannahs, a modernist study of 9 Canadian poets, established him as a major Canadian critic. Collin applied the ideas of such writers as T.S. Eliot, Sir James Frazer & the French Symbolists to Canadian poetry. A fine prose stylist, he also wrote a study of Paul-Jean Toulet and many articles and reviews, including from 1941 to 1956 the yearly review of French Canadian literature for the University of Toronto Quarterly - The Canadian Encyclopedia]. "In 1982 critic, W. E. Collin recalled the excitement with which he discovered the poems of Leo [Kennedy] in a copy of the FORUM in 1930, and the urgency that sent him hurrying to Montreal to meet with the poet and his colleagues. The FORUM's editor had supplied him with addresses. Collin was struck by the proximity of the poets who were turning the desert imagery of T.S. Eliot to their own uses: "I exclaimed, 'They all live in Montreal, Kennedy, Smith, Scott, Klein, They all live in Montreal.'" Collin would eventually celebrate the group in his critical anthology THE WHITE SAVANNAHS [1936]." - AS THOUGH LIFE MATTERED, by Patricia A. Morley, 1994. The most extraordinary copy.. Signed. 1st Edition.

        Gone With the Wind

      New York. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Very Good. FIRST EDITION IN FIRST ISSUE DUST JACKET of Mitchell's Pulitzer-Prize winning epic of Scarlett O'Hara's near-mythic love affair with Rhett Butler, one of the most popular and enduring novels in American literature. Gone With the Wind "appeared to overwhelming popular and critical acclaim in the summer of 1936. It immediately broke all sales records, and it won the Pulitzer Prize the next year. David O. Selznick's 1939 film version, which won ten Academy Award nominations and seven Oscars, including best picture, guaranteed the novel's immortality, and the novel itself remains a popular classic. Twice since its original publication it has reappeared on the New York Times bestseller list, in 1986 and again in 1991. It also has been translated into every major language of the world and many more obscure tongues. It has spawned a minor industry in publishing and spin-offs (from Mammy dolls and china to housing developments), and Mitchell's language has become a part of American lingo. In all probability it is the most popular and widely read novel in the world and the most famous novel in the English language" (American National Biography). New York: Macmillan, 1936. Octavo, original cloth, original dust jacket. Book near-fine, dust jacket with light edgewear and a little bit of soiling; upper flap fold clipped. An exceptionally well-preserved copy.

        EHON DON KIHOUTE

      1936. Fine. SERIZAWA Keisuke. EHON DON KIHOUTE. Mukomachi: Sunward Press, Showa 11 [1936] #22 of 25 of 100cc. 28.7 x 20.7 cm String-bound Japanese style in lacquered, printed paper covers, done by Suzuki Shigeo. Enclosed in the publisher's patterned cloth-covered chitsu clasped case. Perhaps the finest and most important Creative Print Movement illustrated book of the 20th century and a cornerstone for any collection of Japanese ehon. This copy includes the publisher's order sheet with description of the book's origins, limitation, etc. Interestingly enough, the English language order sheet claims that the copy at hand is of the original 75 copies printed in Japan, while the Japanese colophon inside the book reveals it was part of an extra 25 copies printed specifically to be shipped abroad. It was commissioned by Carl T. Keller, the collector of Don Quixote material and illustrated with 31 hand-colored "stencil-engravings" [katazome], by the master Serizawa, later named a Living National Treasure. The covers, being lacquered, are subject to cracking with any use. This copy is amazingly unblemished, with only the slightest cracking along the hinge line. The chitsu case is complete with the original detached clasp included and some weakening to the hinges. A lovely production in remarkable condition.

        Gouache aquarellée de Gino Starace pour la couverture de La Tigresse de Jean de La Hire.

      Arthème Fayard 1936 Gouache aquarellée de Gino Starace pour la couverture de La Tigresse de Jean de La Hire, n°333 du Livre Populaire, Arthème Fayard, 1936. Exécutée sur un carton Canson lavis A à grain satiné de format 17 x 25 cm (marges comprises ; le dessin fait 15 x 24), non signée. La cartouche du titre fait partie du dessin original ; un macaron avec le prix de vente est collé. Un papier calque monté sur le haut du canson vient protéger le dessin. Magnifique état. Giocchino Starace (1859 ? 1950), dit Gino Starace, fut le célèbre illustrateur de la collection du « Livre Populaire » des éditions Arthème Fayard, il en fit un nombre impressionnant de couvertures, choisissant très souvent une scène majeure, violente, étrange, émouvante, du roman, ou bien un portrait saisi dans un sentiment de colère, d'effarement, de terreur. Starace, dit-on, lisait souvent les textes pour choisir la scène qu'il allait composer. Natif de Naples, ce dessinateur italien a dominé presque un demi-siècle de littérature populaire française, grâce à une technique classique irréprochable au service des débordements du genre. Dans Lisibilité, emphase, narrativité (in Tapis Franc n°1, 1988), Daniel Couégnas montre que Starace perçut « la nécessité vitale qui commandait que l'illustration de couverture, cette affiche publicitaire en réduction fût saisie instantanément, appréhendée, déchiffrée de manière univoque par le regard afin de provoquer désir ou curiosité, conditions nécessaires d'une lecture ultérieure du roman ». Il précise que « la force de Starace, c'est sa capacité de synthétiser en une scène les stéréotypes qui renvoient immédiatement le lecteur moyen, médiocrement instruit, à un déjà-lu, ou un déjà-vu, tant historique que dramatique ou psychologique. » Son classicisme marié aux excès mélodramatiques, le choix de couleurs vives, la dynamique du mouvement et l'emphase constituent sa griffe qui culmine avec la folie surréaliste de la série à 65 centimes des Fantômas de Pierre Souvestre et Marcel Allain. Relevons aussi de grands textes de Gaston Leroux (Chéri-Bibi), les Pardaillan de Michel Zévaco, la saga de Rocambole de Ponson du Terrail, Naz-en-l'Air de Souvestre et Allain. (tv) Très bon couverture rigide Edition originale
