         THE BLACK MATE

      1922. [one of 50 copies - unopened] A Story. [Edinburgh:] Fifty Copies printed for the Author for Private Distribution only, 1922. Original green cloth. First Edition of what is considered to be Joseph Conrad's first piece of fiction -- though not published until 1922 (fifty copies printed at the Dunedin Press in Edinburgh). Conrad had written this tale in 1886, while still a first mate at sea, as an entry in a "Sailors' Competition" put on that year by George Newnes's magazine Tit-Bits; Conrad did not win, and the draft he submitted is lost. He re-wrote it later, and it appeared in the April 1908 issue of London Magazine; after this 1922 private printing (which Conrad arranged through Thomas J. Wise), it would finally be collected in the posthumous 1925 volume TALES OF HEARSAY.~Conrad never recognized "The Black Mate" as his first fiction, saying "It is an extraneous phenomenon. My literary life began privately in 1890 [actually 1889] and publically in 1895 with ALMAYER'S FOLLY, which is generally regarded as my very first piece of writing. However, the history of the 'Black Mate', its origin, etc., need not be proclaimed on the housetops, and ALMAYER'S FOLLY may keep its place as my first serious work" [quoted in Cagle]. Quoting from Sarkar,~'The Black Mate' is Conrad's disowned child so to speak... Conrad was translating his own psychological problem of an early love, and later he wanted to disown it, particularly when he was an established author, simply because it was a translation of his passion and nothing more... 'The Black Mate' is life and not literature and Conrad was afraid to betray the secret source of his literary achievement so unadorned, as one would be unwilling to disrobe one's bride in full public view.~This is a fine copy, with the leaves still unopened; its only flaw is a bump to the bottom edge of the front board. In our experience, THE BLACK MATE is curiously scarcer than any of the numerous 25-copy booklets that Wise published for Conrad during 1919-1920 (this is the first copy we have offered since 1998); perhaps something happened to many of the 50 copies?Cagle A55b.

         Cy Comencent Les Chroniques de Jherusalem Abregies [manuscript facsimile of the original Chronicles of the Crusades in the Austrian National Library]

      [Vienna 1922 - (21 x 11 inches). 34 pages, on fine vellum, written in a batarde hand in red and black ink. 2 full-page and 83 half-page, quarter-page, and column width miniatures illuminated in full color and burnished gold, numerous illuminated initials, all within alternating red and blue borders with gold decoration. Original vellum over bevelled oak boards. Housed in a black morocco backed box. Provenance: Ralph C. Runyon (letters by the artist laid in) Astounding manuscript facsimile of a celebrated illuminated manuscript account of the Second Crusade. The Croniques de Jherusalem is among the prized possessions of the Austrian National Library. The richly illuminated codex, of which this manuscript is a painstaking exact copy, was prepared on behalf of Phillip the Good, (also known as Phillip III, Duke of Burgundy) circa 1450. Recent scholarship has attributed the original to the Master of Girart de Rouissillon, naming the codex as among his finest works. Phillip the Good is best remembered for his extravagant court, his taste for luxury and his patronage of the arts. During his reign, some six hundred illuminated manuscripts were commissioned, including the Croniques de Jherusalem. The original manuscript came into possession of Emperor Mathias and was passed down by inheritance to Emperor Max I, being notable enough to be mentioned in the inventory of the Treasury at that time. In the mid-18th century, the codex passed to the Imperial Library, later to be renamed the National Library. In 1922, artist, antiquary and publisher Annete von Eckardt was given permission to copy the famed manuscript, which to that time had not been reproduced. Von Eckardt, perhaps best known for her relationship with Franz Marc, was an extraordinary artist and colourist, as evidenced by this manuscript. In a note laid in, Eckardt describes the two year process by which she accomplished the work: "The original miniatures are shown very rarely and only by exceptional permission. Thanks to the kindness of the Director Herr Smital for two long years of tedious work it was possible to copy leaf by leaf with the aid of a magnifying glass. Again and again every detail of the work was compared with the original, while the precious leaves were kept under a protecting sheet of glass. Great difficulties were produced by the poor light in the library, which being situated in the old in period castle is entirely equipped in the style of the middle ages. Of course to execute the minute work of the miniatures no ordinary water-colours could be used: the lapis lazuli blue, scarlet red, turquois green had to be prepared with the aid of the yellow of eggs, honey, etc. etc. All the gold consists of pure gold and is finished by polishing with an agate style and will never tarnish. Such difficult and tedious copying of precious and antique masterpieces can hardly be expected, if at all, more than once. Therefore, this exquisite work of art, the Chronology of the Crusades, will ever be increasing in value as time goes on." An extraordinary work of art. Cf. Osterreichische Nationalbibliothek, Cod. 2533. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         DEFINITION OF CONSTRUCTIVISM] Konstruktivizm [i.e. Constructivism]

      Tverskoe izdatel'stvo, Tver' 1922 - [2], 70 pp. 23,5x20 cm. In original letterpress wrappers attributed to Aleksandr Rodchenko. Very good. Occasional pencil markings in the text, a few small tears of the wrappers, tiny bits of the spine missing. First edition. One of 2000 copies. Very rare. Aleksei Gan's Constructivism was the first theoretical work of constructivist movement and became its declaration. He defined its three core principles - tectonics, texture and construction which made artists and architects in his words 'constructors' who must focus on the fusion of art with everyday life to create a system of design where ''everything will be conceived in a technical and functional way'' - a fitting contribution to the great task of building the new communist society. Aleksei Gan (1893-1942) was a Russian avant-grade artist and art theorist, a key figure among Russia's post-revolutionary avant-garde, working across theatre, architecture, graphics and cinema. The book was penned, typeset and printed by Gan himself. His layout is one of the first experiments in Constructivist typography and graphic design. Worldcat locates physical copies in Art Institute of Chicago, Getty, Harvard, Met, MOMA, Princeton, Stanford, NYPL, National Gallery of Art Library, University of Michigan, Ohio State University, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign.

         [Photo Album]: Overpass being built in Kensington, Ohio 1922

      Kensignton, Ohio, 1922. Near Fine. Oblong octavo. String-tied gray cloth over paper boards with "Photographs" stamped on the front boards. An album of 68 sepia toned photographs each measuring 1.5" x 2.5" each captioned by hand. Near fine with slight fading on the boards with about fine or better photos. A photo album kept by a citizen of Kensington, Ohio documenting the construction of a railroad undergrade bridge overpass in 1922. The photos show the sights of the town including Town Hall and "Charley Bixby's Famous Boiled Liver Restaurant and Hotel Deluxe" before showing the work being done on the railroad in September of 1922. Throughout the album are photos of equipment such as concrete mixers and pile drivers, newly erected abutments, and men working on the tracks. The photographer was likely part of the work crew as the captions are full of quips and nicknames, for instance one page is dedicated to "the professor." One photo of three workers sitting on the tracks is captioned, "prutty durn hot" and another reads, "cuple of sheeks?"A unique view of a town wide project and the men who made it happen.

         BRAZIL: MAPPA GERAL DO BRASIL. / TERCEIRA EDICAO POPULAR DO JORNAL DO BRASIL, SETEMBERO DE 1922. EDICAO ESPECIAL DO CENTENARIO.

      [Sao Paulo:] Seccao cartográfica da Comp. Litographica Ypiranga, . 1922 - Colour off-set print, dissected into 2 large sections and mounted upon original linen, original folds (Very Good, just some light wear along dissection edges and original folds; and slight fraying to edges of linen), 112.5 x 66.5 cm (44 x 26 inches). This rare and highly attractive wall map of Brazil was commissioned by the Jornal do Brasil, a leading daily newspaper, to commemorate the centenary of the independence of the country (Brazil attained its sovereignty from Portugal in 1822). The map was published in São Paulo by the cartography division of Companiha Litographica Ypiranga, a popular printer of books and ephemera.The map is beautifully designed, showcasing all of Brazil in it majesty. Each of the republic’s 22 divisions (20 states, 1 territory, and 1 Federal District), are defined in their own bright colours, with their new limits according to the 1921 Brazilian Conference on Interstate Boundaries (as explained in the text, lower-left corner). The capital of Brazil was then Rio de Janeiro, with the Federal District comprising of only a tiny (1.164 sq. km) portion of Rio’s old town. Moreover, the map depicts the rectangular ‘Futuro Districto Federal’, carved out of Goiás state, in Central Brazil, being the recently designated future site of Brasilia (which would not become the national capital until 1960). The ‘Convencoes’ table, lower-left, identifies symbols used the designate various levels of major cities and towns (including state capitals); the locations of lighthouses; the delineation of overland and submarine telegraph lines and radio telegraph stations; the routes of railway lines (solid red lines – completed; intermittent red – under construction); as well as oceanic and inland shipping routes. In the lower-right corner of the map is a magnificent cartouche, festooned with national symbols, containing portraits of the rulers of Brazil since 1822: including its two emperors (Dom Pedro I & II) and its eleven presidents (Brazil became a republic in 1889), including the dates of their administration. Below is a fascinating statistical table, detailing the population, land area, population density, capital cities (with their populations) of each Brazilian state; all according to the 1920 census. Brazil then had a population of 30.636 million (against today’s 210 million!). Additionally, in the lower-left corner, the map is adorned with a view of the Jornal do Brazil’s grand headquarters, in Rio de Janeiro. The newspaper was established in 1891, in the wake of the nation becoming a republic. Under the influence of one of its founders, the famous writer Joaquim Nabuco, the Jornal quickly became one of Brazil’s most popular conservative dailies, being both immensely influential and controversial. By 1922, it had shed it scrappy image, and was a cornerstone of the Brazilian media establishment, a role it still occupies to this very day. The present special Centennial Edition of the map is third edition of the Mappa do Brasil series issued for the Jornal do Brasil. The first issue was published in 1911 by the firm of Hartmann-Reichenbach. The present third edition is more decorative and vibrant than the first, having been printed by Litographica Ypiranga of São Paulo (founded in 1901), a trendy, rising star of the Brazilian publishing industry. Due to its ephemeral nature, all editions of the Jornal’s Mappa do Brasil are very rare today. The present 1922 Centennial Edition seems to be especially scarce; we can trace the existence of only a couple of other examples.

         How I Trade and Invest in Stocks and Bonds: Being some methods evolved and adopted during my thirty-three years experience in Wall Street

      The Magazine of Wall Street 1922 - 1st Edition (1922) . Recenly rebound in black leather with gilt lettering No marks or writing observed in text. Damp stain on front end paper and half title page. This rebound rare title will easily last another 100 years+.a . . . . . . Richard Wyckoff was a Wall Street legend. Not only did he make a fortune, but he also was the longtime editor and publisher of The Magazine of Wall Street and the developer of successful methods to analyze and forecast the market. In this book, originally published in 1922, Wyckoff lays out his insider's knowledge for everyone, especially those who are willing to study before risking one's own money. After all, he wrote, 'in Wall Street as anywhere else, the chief essential is common sense, coupled with study and practical experience.' He covers topics such as the six rules he's found helpful, why he adopted Harriman's principle, what he looks for before buying a bond, the earmarks of a desirable investment, the importance of knowing who owns a stock, and how to recognize manipulation in the market. . . . . . . . . 'Virtually everything written after Livermore and Wyckoff are variations on themes developed by these two men. Wyckoff was among the first to explain the accumulation-distribution cycle (which makes stock and market timing possible) and to develop the use of 'surrogates', self-made indexes which consist of a handful of leading stocks in a group (such as semiconductors), which warn the investor of impending moves, and which enable the investor to filter out all the noise of broadcasters, publishers, newsletters, message boards, and chat rooms. Understand Wyckoff and you'll understand the engine that drives stocks and markets rather than be distracted by the genuine imitation wood trim and the smell of the leather seats.' -- dbphoenix [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        A Hasty Bunch

      [Paris: Printed in Dijon by Maurice Darantière for Contact Publishing Co.], [1922]. 8vo. 288pp. Original printed French-folded wrappers, uncut and unopened. A beautiful, fresh copy with only a few areas of palest discoloration along the spine. FIRST EDITION, one of approximately 300 copies privately printed of McAlmon's second book (preceded by a collection of poetry) and the first book issued by his own Contact Publishing Co. This copy includes the broadside "From an h'English Printer to an English Publisher" laid-in. The Dijon printer Maurice Darantière printed this shortly before he completed work on Joyce's 'Ulysses.' McAlmon had assisted Joyce in the typing of the manuscript for that novel, reordering some of the material in the Penelope episode due to difficulties in interpreting Joyce's handwriting. Born in the American midwest, McAlmon expatriated to Paris where he was closely allied with Joyce, Stein, Hemingway, Williams, and many other Modernists. His publishing company published Hemingway's first book, Three Stories and Ten Poems, among other highlights of the period. In his memoir, McAlmon recalled that Joyce said these stories reminded him of his own 'Dubliners' and suggested the title 'A Hasty Bunch' "because he found my American use of language racy" (p.33). The gay story "A Boy's Discovery" is among the more sexually explicit.
