        The Complete Poems and Stories

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf,, 1951. With Selections from His Critical Writings. With an Introduction and Explanatory Notes by Arthur Hobson Quinn. Texts Established, with Bibliographical Notes, by Edward H. O'Neill. Illustrated by E. McKnight Kauffer. 2 volumes, octavo (232 × 152 mm). Contemporary green morocco by Maurin, spines gilt in compartments, patterned endpapers, double-line rules to boards, turn-ins, and top edges gilt. Colour frontispiece and 5 plates by E. McKnight Kauffer to each volume. Spines and edges of boards tanned. An excellent set. Second E. McKnight Kauffer edition, originally published in 1947. One of the lesser known but most original and arresting illustrated editions of Poe. The artist, E. McKnight Kauffer (1890–1954), is best known today for his vorticist and futurist inspired London Underground posters. "Kauffer's sprightly, jazzy, designs were part of the social fabric of progressive, forward-looking Britain in his time" (ODNB), but here his modernist style is used to dramatic and eerie effect in keeping with the tone of Poe's writings. A very nice set.

        The Sea Around Us

      New York: Oxford University Press, 1951. Carson's second book, a popular account of the wonders of the oceans. Scarce early edition. Bibliographically complex, most copies offered as 'first editions' are actually book club issue. According to collector Steve Messier, who studied Carson's letters to and from her publisher, the true first has a two-line copyright statement - no mention of H Wolff - and no statement of later printing; and is bound in either an extremely scarce and delicate flat paper over boards, the very first state, of which perhaps 100 were issued only to reviewers, the rest being rebound in a glossy paper over boards, as we have here. The jacket appears in several more states. The earliest has three horizontal lines representing fathom marks on the upper front jacket flap and no reviews on that flap. The second state, which we have, has three fathom marks and two reviews. Later states have three reviews and only two fathom marks; yet later states have but one review by Thor Heyerdahl and two fathom marks. No early version has a price on the flap. On the earliest states, the rear jacket copy ends in 'coral reefs'; later states mentions Carson's Guggenheim Award. Hardcover, decorated paper over boards, white titling. Shows some edgewear, foxing, light general wear; endshhets & title page foxed; page edges foxed; jacket lightly rubbed and foxed, light edgewear. Text clean; vii, blank, 230 pages; index, bibliography, decorated endsheets.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Good/Good. 5¾" by 8½".

        Reality Lost and Regained. Autobiography of a Schizophrenic Girl

      New York: Grune and Stratton,, 1951. With Analytic Interpretation by Marguerite Sechehaye. Translated by Grave Rubin-Rabson. Octavo. Original red vellum-grained paper covered boards, titles to spine and upper board in black. A little rubbed at the extremities, corners slightly bumped. An excellent copy. First edition, first printing, in the first issue grained boards, of one of the earliest autobiographical accounts of schizophrenia, the "remarkable visions" (Alvarez) recorded and interpreted by the patient's Swiss psychoanalyst Marguerite A. Schervaye (1887–1964). Schervaye was a leader in the psychoanalytic treatment of schizophrenics and had spent seven years treating the subject of this account, a young woman named Réne who began having schizophrenic episodes as a child and was institutionalised during her teenage years. In order to treat her, Sechervaye "drew on psychoanalytical and existential theory to fashion her own therapy. She saw the roots of psychosis in infantile emotional trauma. She maintained that this led the victim to constantly renewed efforts to relive the original trauma in order to overcome it. Such people also fled to fantasy, both to try and escape from their pain, but also to make reality subservient to desire. Freudian theory, with its notions of symbolization and displacement, helped decode the patient's communications that emanated from their imaginary world… Sechervaye advocated that 'the therapist instead of insisting on submission to reality (as he customarily does with the neurotic), will strive to offer him a new reality, such as reality as would have been necessary to avoid the initial, infantile trauma'" (Beveridge, Portrait of the Psychiatrist, p. 99). The analyst's intense work with Réne, in which she acted as a stand-in for the girl's real mother so that "reality was altered to address the patient's originally impoverished experience" apparently contributed to Réne's complete recovery and return to normal life. Marguerite's first book on Réne, Symbolic Realization (1947), related the case from the therapist's viewpoint, and in 1951 Sechervaye published this companion work, the young woman's first-hand, but heavily edited, account of living with schizophrenia, beginning with her first experience of "unreality" at the age of five: "I remember very well the day it happened. We were staying in the country and I had gone for a walk… suddenly, as I was passing the school, I heard a German song… I stopped to listen and at that instant a strange feeling came over me, a feeling hard to analyze but akin to something I was to know too well later–a disturbing sense of unreality. It seemed to me that I no longer recognised the barracks; the singing children were prisoners, compelled to sing. It was as though the school and the children's song were set apart from the rest of the world. At the same time my eye encountered a field of wheat whose limits I could not see. The yellow vastness, dazzling in the sun, bound up with the song of the children… filled me with such anxiety that I broke into sobs… It was the first appearance of those elements which were always present in later sensations of unreality: illimitable vastness, brilliant light, and the gloss and smoothness of material things." The account continues through the escalating troubles of her childhood and her institutionalisation, followed by her experience of therapy with Sechervaye, who completes the volume with a chapter on her own interpretation of the case. Though psychoanalytical therapy for schizophrenics has now been discredited, and Réne's long-term outcome from this treatment is unknown, her autobiography remains significant as one of the earliest published memoirs of schizophrenia and a revealing record of the disease's effects on the mind. First editions in the first issue boards, such as this copy, are uncommon–more often seen are the remainders in ungrained red boards and the later printings which also bear the date 1951 on the title page.

        [ORIGINAL INTERIOR PHOTOGRAPH OF THE ROBIE HOUSE (CHICAGO), DESIGNED BY FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT]

      Chicago. N.d. but circa 1951. [Chicago. N.d., but circa 1951].. Vintage silver gelatin print. (7 1/4 x 9 1/2)". About fine, mounted loose with free tabs in 16 x 20" matting. Fine. An original print of this image, bearing a sequence assortment of stamped, manuscript or affixed provenance and identification on the verso: "Time Inc., Frank Lloyd Wright, Robie House, Ill"; "Property of The Architectural Forum"; "Photograph by Aaron Siskind" with "and Richard Nickel" in pencil written below; etc. The Robie House was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright c. 1908, and completed in 1910. This photograph, taken during the early quest to save the Robie House from demolition, highlights Wright's genius in creating recesses and projections from the interlay of Roman brick and limestone, the same "step massing" inside as seen on the exterior of the home. The striking rectilinear andirons were designed by Wright. What is missing from this photograph is the original inglenook that surrounded the fireplace to create a cozy space around the warmth of the fire - an important feature in the Wright design. Richard Nickel, a student of the photographer Aaron Siskind, went on to pursue the preservation of endangered buildings in Chicago and met his demise in the collapse of a portion of the Chicago Stock Exchange building.
