        Pro Lisu i Kolobok. Russkaia skazka [About the Fox and the Runaway Bun: A Russian Fairy Tale]. Five copies, in variant pochoir wrappers.; Detskaia biblioteka [Children's Library]

      Paris: J. Povolozky, 1921. Octavos (18.5 × 13.5 cm). Original decorative wrappers pasted over blind self-wrappers (as issued); 8 pp. Wrappers illustrated with five variant pochoir patterns. Numerous small vignettes in the text. Very good. Russian fairy tale printed for children of Russian émigrés in France, with illustrations by the ten-year-old Zhenya Kovarskaya, the daughter of Ilya Kovarskii and Lidiia Kovarskaia, an editor-and-publisher duo which had left Soviet Russia in 1919. Each of the five copies features a variant wrapper, decorated by hand using different patterns, most likely using the pochoir technique. Given small irregularities, it appears likely that this work was also carried out by children. The publisher, J. Povolozky, ran a gallery in Paris in the 1920s and was known for his collaboration with Russian avant-garde artists Mikhail Larionov and Natalia Goncharova. KVK, OCLC show copies (one each) at NYPL, Princeton, Stanford, and UNC Chapel Hill, without specifying which of the wrapper variants are held. Not at the Russian State or National Library. Not in Savine.

        Eight ALS by Lev L'vovich Tolstoy (1869-1945), the son of Lev Tolstoy, to Jacques Patin (1883-1948), the editor of Figaro

      Paris and Wiesbaden, 1921. Eight single leaves, some folded. Very good, with exception of one letter, with tear and some loss to text. The son of Lev Tolstoy, Lev L'vovich Tolstoy was a firm believer in his father's ideals in his youth, but later became increasingly opposed to his philosophical and ethical ideas. He studied sculpture with Rodin and tried, without success, to become a published writer, as well as writing about his childhood and impressions of his father. In 1918 he emigrated, living in Paris before eventually settling in Sweden. The letters included here date to a period when he wrote articles on his father and was making a difficult living as a journalist. Among other things, they contain his negative reaction to his mother's memoirs, discuss his own writing and plans to publish his recollections, and detail his financial woes. "Je prends la liberté de vous envoyer pour le Figaro un article littéraire, souvenirs personnels sur mon père et deux de ses nouvelles. Vous me rendriez un grand service en les publiant le plus tôt possible, car hélas je dois exister du journalisme." - "Je me permets de vous envoyer ci-jointes quelques pages sur la nouvelle posthume de mon père Le Diable. Je parlais de cette ?uvre dans un article sur la Sonate à Kreutzer, qui a été publié dans le Journal, mais la rédaction n'a pas voulu publier ces pages qui sont pourtant intéressantes. Peut-être pourrez-vous en faire usage en les publiant dans le Figaro ensemble avec le chapitre qui parle des ouvrages de Tolstoï pour le théâtre [...] Je vous suis très obligé pour l'aide que vous m'avez donnée pour la publication de mes souvenirs ainsi que je remercie Monsieur Robert de Flers pour l'article qu'il a publié dans le Figaro. [...] Maintenant, comme je suis sans argent à ce moment et le change est très déplorable pour notre séjour ici, je vous prierais d'avoir l'extrême obligeance de me faire envoyer ici 300-400 francs avec le premier courrier." - "Ma Vie c'est une ignoble escroquerie littéraire et il faut le dire carrément. Le publique est dupé. On achète ce petit livre croyant lire quelque chose de Tolstoï, sa vie, tandis que cela n'est qu'un récit d'une baba russe, un récit d'une langue russe magnifique, mais un rien comme intérêt [...] littéraire.".

Volume 5 is not only a first edition but the first part of the print run with the error relating to the comparative numbers of British and Australian reinforcements sent to France in the winter of 1917-18. By this mistake the diminished reinforcements sent by the British Government to France was made to appear much smaller than it actually was. The set has with it a letter dated 19th March 1937 explaining the mistake and providing two corrected pages. The letter is signed by C. E. W. Bean the Official Historian and author of six of the volumes.

        Signed letter from the American publisher of his book "Poems by Wilfred Owen."

      B. W. Heubsch, Inc, New York 1921 - A wonderful letter from publisher B. W. Huebsch to Mr. Joseph Cohen of U. of Texas discussing his decision to publish Wilfred Owen's book "Poems" in America (1921). In relevant part: "The book was brought to my attention in the course of its preparation for publication in London by Siegfried Sassoon and it was because of his relation to it, as editor and introducer as well as because of my admiration for the poems themselves, that i arranged with the London publishers for an American edition. In view of your need for a copy of my edition of the "Poems" (1921) I take pleasure in contributing the copy in my personal library." Signed B. W. Huebsch. Also included, and from the same collection, is a first American edition (the one published by Huebsch). Nothing ties that particular copy to this letter other than the fact that they were found together. Overall condition of the book is Fair, with much of the spine cracked (lacking the rare dust jacket), internal contents are generally in excellent condition. Fair.

        Nova phenix renascida. N.º 1, all published.

      Coimbra, Tip. F. França Amado, Successor, Julho de 1921. - Large 8°, original printed wrappers (very minor wear). Slight browning. Partially unopened; overall in very good condition. 32 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION, a COMPLETE RUN. According to Fernando Guimarães, this review, along with others such as Ícaro, A Tradição, A Nossa Revista, Bysancio, Conímbriga, Tríptico, and Labareda, mix tendencies which were still strong in the 1920s, among them Decadence, Symbolism, Literary Nationalism, and Saudosismo. These were to unite with the Modernism of the generation of Orpheu, preparing the way for the appearance of Presença. Nova phenix was edited by Luís Vieira de Castro and published by Luís de Sousa e Vasconcelos. In an initial essay Manuel de Meneses (pp. 1-4) disparages authors such as Júlio Dantas, Antero de Figueiredo, Carlos Malheiro Dias, António Patrício, Sousa Pinto and Augusto de Castro, among others. In the same essay, Meneses affirms that the review proposes to analyze the state of Portuguese literature and contribute to its rehabilitation, stating that the review is not the organ of any coterie, and does not present any particular program. Four sonnets by João Cabral do Nascimento (pp. 5-8) are followed by an article on Russian ballet by Ernesto Gonçalves (pp. 9-16). There are two previously unpublished letters by Camilo Castelo Branco to José Cardoso Vieira de Castro (pp. 17-9), and Luís Vieira de Castro contributes a piece of short fiction titled "Espiritual" (pp. 20-5), as well as an essay "Ideias & factos, cronica: a melhor obra de Camillo" (pp. 29-31). Álvaro Manso de Souza provides three sonnets with the collective title "Poemas Orientais" (pp. 26-8). Finally, Manuel de Meneses contributes a brief resumé of the recent "Vida Literária e Artística" (pp. 31-2), which includes favorable mention of Eugénio de Castro, Fialho de Almeida, and Aquilino Ribeiro, as well as the painter Eduardo Viana. Ruy Coelho's opera Auto do Berço, performed at the Teatro São Carlos in Lisbon, was judged unsuccessful, though the composer's talent was considered admirable.*** Pires, Dicionário das revistas literárias portuguesas do século XX, pp. 219-20, correctly transcribing the title of this review; Dicionário da imprensa periódica literária portuguesa do século XX, I, 256-7, succumbing to the pedantry of the Porbase and Biblioteca Nacional cataloguers in calling this Nova fenix renascida. Clara Rocha, Revistas literárias do século XX em Portugal, pp. 368-9, 643. Carneiro da Silva, Jornais e revistas do Distrito de Coimbra. Serpa 851. Almeida Marques 1463. See also Fernando Guimarães, Simbolismo, modernismo e vanguardas (1982). Porbase locates copies at the Biblioteca Pública Municipal do Porto, Biblioteca Geral da Universidade de Coimbra, and Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian. It is typical of this otherwise very useful resource's pedantic approach to cataloguing, that one gets no "hits" by searching "Nova phenix" - not even a cross reference; to find it, one must search under the newer, politically correct orthography, "Nova fenix". Not located in Copac. Not located in Hollis or Orbis. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Ööpäev (24 Hours) [Poetry collection]

      Loodus (Nature), Haapsalu 1921 - Estonian language. Octavo 17 x 24 cm. Weight 80 gr. Wrappers, 48 pp. The Book is in Near Fine condition without any visible defects, losses, remarks and stains. Little wrapped cover corners, back cover minor corner piece is lost, front cover minor cover piece is restored (pasted). Book was born out of a collaboration between writer and artist. They were both 20 years old in most beginning of a creative way when the book was published and met while studying in Higher Art School Pallas in Tartu. "Ööpäev" is Oengo's one of the first experiments in free verse poetry, but author preserved main aspects of his writing style - writing with simple genius about everyday life, all with verve and humour. Poems begin with prolog and talk about changing time of day - morning, midday, evening and night. Striking wood engraving book cover and five full-paged original woodcuts inside created by Estonian artist Aleksander Bergman (after 1940 Aleksander Vardi) (1901-1983), who is considered as the most outstanding Estonian impressionist. Work on this book's illustrations refers to artist's first years of study in Pallas when his wood- and linocut works showed the influence of Expressionism. Present scarce book is one of the few remained very interesting examples of this artist's creation period, because most of works made in the Pallas studio were destroyed during World War II.
