        Letters from the Underworld [Notes from the Underground]

      J.M. Dent 1913 - Letters from the Underworld [Notes from the Underground] London, 1913 ************ The first edition in English of a foundational text of existentialism and a precursor to, if not one of the beginnings of, Modernist literature. The novella follows the outpourings of a bitterly lonely and isolated bureaucrat as he struggles to reconcile himself with the gloomy world he inhabits. ************** Publisher’s red cloth boards with gilt spine. Covers a bit sooty. Textblock edges dusty. Contents clean. Withal a sound, Very Good copy. Ex-libris, Walter Meek(British architect). This volume also contains the first appearances of A Gentle Spirit and The Landlady. ************ Rare(found in 8 libraries worldwide, no auction records). And as is often the case, when these types of little known first appearances come on the market, there will be a scramble by every attic-comber across the world to find one in any condition and throw it on the web for an unseemly price. This is the time to act before the bubble begins. ********* “The underground man struggles to define himself, and to place himself into the world, into a reality in which he feels he does not belong. What makes this novel unique is the infinite ability and desire the underground man possesses to indulge in introspection. He struggles to attain a sense of connection with the outside world, while simultaneously demanding free will and independence. He yearns to exist free from morality and subjugation to basic human nature. His failure to crawl out of the underground only adds levels of dimension to his struggle, and to the novel as an existentialist work. The underground man never escapes his suffering and alienation. At its core, his failure is caused by his paradox of need. He yearns to belong and yet demands to be independent. Notes from the Underground is a window into the true nature of existentialism.”(Rapoport) ********* “Notes from the Underground was first published in January and February of 1864 as the featured presentation in the first two issues of The Epoch, Dostoevsky's second journal of the 1860s. The novel was written at one of the lowest points of Dostoevsky's career. His first journal, Time, had recently failed, his new journal was being threatened with failure, his wife was dying, his financial position was becoming ever more difficult and embarrassing, his conservatism was eroding his popularity with the liberal majority of the reading public, and he was increasingly the subject of attack in the liberal and radical press.”(University of Minnesota) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        SOUTH POLE: An Account of the Norwegian Antarctic Expedition in the "Fram," 1910-1912

      London and New York: John Murray and Lee Keedick, 1913. 2 volumes. First edition, American issue, using the English sheets with title-pages noting Keedick created for the U.S. Issue. Numerous illustrations, folding maps, plans and charts, folding maps at rear of each volume. 138 photographic illustrations on 103 plates. Thick 8vo, publisher's original navy blue cloth lettered in gilt on the spines and upper covers and decoratively ruled in blind, t.e.g. xxxv, 392; x, 449 pp. A very nice, bright and handsome set. The bindings are unusually well preserved, tight and strong, the text blocks very clean and as pristine and essentially mint. ONE OF THE SCARCEST AND MOST IMPORTANT POLAR TITLES, ESPECIALLY THE FIRST AMERICAN EDITION. Norwegian captain Roald Amundsen had initially intended make an expedition to the Arctic, but changed his plans at the last moment and announced he would try for the South Pole instead. His explanation to the public was that if he could beat the English and Japanese expeditions to the Pole then he could secure success and funds for his extensive Arctic expedition, and also "snatch the prize" for his own country. So , unbeknownst to Scott, Amundsen sailed southward in the "Fram" to the Bay of Whales that would afford his expedition both the shortest route to the Pole and a route that would not overlap with either the Japanese or the English expeditions. From start to finish, Amundsen's expedition ran like clockwork. He carefully planned every moment of the trip, using his experience in the Arctic and his extensive knowledge of dog-teams to help him through. His team was entirely Norwegian, accustomed to a harsh and cold climate, and were excellent ski-runners. In addition, Amundsen traveled light; he brought five men and fifty dogs on his expedition so that the latter could eventually serve as food for the former. Part of what doomed Scott's party was the fact that he favored men and ponies over dogs, bringing twelve men, eight ponies, and only twenty-six dogs. Amundsen's party remained in excellent health and always had enough to eat from their plentiful provisions at their well-stocked supply depots. They also supplemented their food stores with a great seal hunt just before the winter, after which 120,000 lb. of fresh seal meat were added to their stores, which helped protect them against scurvy. Unlike Scott's party, Amundsen's party were also fortunate enough to have favorable weather conditions on their side, so that they were able to reach the Pole using their supply depots and dog sleds in just 99 days, a distance of 1860 miles, covering an astonishing average of 19 miles a day over frozen and difficult ground. Their journey was truly an extraordinary accomplishment, and Amundsen's account of it is no less riveting.

        "Wee Folk"

      : , 1913. "Wee Folk" Original Watercolor Drawing for "Arthur Rackham's Book of Pictures" RACKHAM, Arthur. "Wee Folk." [N.p.: n.d., ca. 1913]. Original pen-and-ink and watercolor drawing for the seventh color plate in "Arthur Rackham's Book of Pictures" (London: 1913). Signed "Arthur Rackham" within a cartouche at lower right. With a label on the reverse, signed and dated by Rackham: "Exhibition of Works by/Arthur Rackham/Held at The Leicester Galleries,/Leicester Square, London./Nov 1913/No. 54 Goblins/Purchaser/A.W. Moro Esq." Image size: 9 1/2 x 5 5/16 inches; 240 x 135 mm. Matted, framed, and glazed. A superb example of Arthur Rackham's masterly penmanship, incredibly understated in its conception and wonderfully evocative. This watercolor is reproduced on p. 131 of Fred Gettings's Arthur Rackham (London: 1975). Arthur Rackham's Picture Book "consists of a series of forty-four coloured plates and a few line drawings with an amusing introduction by Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch...In his Introduction Sir Arthur waxes poetic about the collection, speaking of it as a kind of 'biography'" (Gettings, p. 321). In this delicate drawing, Rackham is at his best with this simple rendering, using soft washes of color and drawing his typically well-known animals and elves. "Therefore, even if there were no such things as fairies, the children would have to invent them - pixies, nixies, gnomes, goblins, elves, kobbolds, and the rest - to account for the marvels that are happening all the while, but especially while we sleep..." (Introduction by Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch to Arthur Rackham's Book of Pictures, p.29). Fred Gettings Arthur Rackham, p.131.

        Kandinsky 1901-1913

      [1913]. 1913 - Numerous black and white illustrations. Firstedition. Square 4to., stoutly rebound,using staples and glued-on head and tailbands, after 1929, in white cloth, original front wrapper pasted to the top cover, housed in a custom made folding box. Berlin, Verlag der Sturm. A hybrid copy, with two separate presentation inscriptions pasted in, probably as the result of an accident befalling the the inscribed copy. The title page is from another copy, or has in the past been separated, and subsequently pasted back in, is cut down, lacking the top 4cm, neatly cut, inscribed in ink 'Dieses Buch ist erschienen zur Zeit der Flut in mir und nun [two illegible words]. Heute ist in der Umgebung Ebbe - vor noch grÖsserer Flut. FÜr ihr lieber Dr.Moor, Kandinsky Weimar Okt. 1924'. (This book appeared at the time of my flood and now(.) Today it is ebbing, before a yet greater flood). Also pasted in the printed title page from Bauhaus Buch 9, Kandinsky 'Punkt und Linie zu Fläche', 1926, inscribed in pencil 'Natur=Welt, Kunst=Welt, ergo Kunst=Natur Kandinsky Dessau Nov.29'. (Nature is the World, Art is the World, ergo Art is Nature.) Further inscribed in pencil in another hand at the foot 'mit herzlichen gruss LK'. Among the illustrations are reproduced Kandinsky's paintings on the theme of the Deluge, the inscription perhaps referring to his own private apocalyptic pathology, and the commonly held fear of the future in 1920s Germany. The laid down wrapper badly scratched and faded, text block cockled at the rear, last leaf repaired with new paper replacing the missing head and tail of the leaf, last few gatherings creased. Despite its compromised condition, still a powerful object. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Liber CCCXXXIII: The Book of Lies. Which is Also Falsely Called Breaks. The Wanderings or Falsifications of the One Thought of Frater Perdurabo Which Thought is itself Untrue.

      - London: Wieland and Co., 1913. First edition. Crowley describes the book thus; ‘This book deals with many matters on all planes of the very highest importance. It is an official publication for Babes of the Abyss, but is recommended even to beginners as highly suggestive.’ Full of in jokes, cryptic poetry and mystical musings, there is much to meditate upon and digest of a Kabbalistic and Thelemic nature among its pages. Also included at the end is a brilliantly self-deprecating list of his books to date, ‘The Excreta of Mr. Aleister Crowley’, filled with real and self penned critiques of his works. Illustrated with two photogravure portraits, one of Crowley on an ass in the Himalayas and a fantastic ritualistic image of Leila Waddell. A near fine copy in original decorated cloth. Bookplate of A. E, Richardson, a student of Crowley’s in the late 1920s and early 30s, to front pastedown. A nice copy of an undoubted highlight in the Crowley canon.
