         In The Heat Of The Summer You Will Find Me Cool In The Cold Of The Winter Find Me Warm Come Down Underground You've Bought Your Ticket? Your Health Man I'm Thinking No Longer 'Twill Stick It For Cheapness Celerity What Else Can Compare You Are Fed Up Above Feed Below On Our Fare'.

      1922 - London: Underground Electric Railways Company of London, 1922. 1015 x 1270mm. Some wear. A map of Central London showing the Underground stations, drawn by Leslie MacDonald Gill, in the style of his famous 'Wonderground' map of 1914, but with new details. It does not extend as far north or south, but instead has nine armorials (the eight principal London boroughs and a ninth for a rabbit, returning to the Alice theme) and a decorative scroll containing the title. Bottom right is his signature and a further text: 'Will the tired traveller wearisomely realise that this map is meticulously accurate (with exceptions), that it has been punctiliously delineated to the scale of six inches to the mile and that its merry quips are well meant even when unintelligible'. Leslie MacDonald Gill (1884-1947), younger brother of Eric Gill, specialised in graphic design in the Arts and Crafts style. His most important commission was from the Imperial War Graves Commission, designing the script used on Commission headstones and war memorials, including the 'Thiepval Memorial to the Missing of the Somme'. He produced a number of maps, two of which appeared in the British Museum exhibition 'Magnificent Maps in 2010: 'The Wonderground Map of London' (1914) & 'Tea Revives the World' (1940).

         Ulysses.

      Paris: Shakespeare & Company, 1922. First edition of Joyce's masterpiece. One of 750 numbered copies on handmade paper from a total edition of 1000 copies, this is number 318. Thick quarto, bound in full blue morocco, with the original wrappers bound in. In near fine condition. Ulysses was published in Paris by Shakespeare & Company, 1922. It was a struggle for the author to find a publisher, a comic irony considering that Ulysses is "[u]niversally hailed as the most influential work of modern times" (Grolier Joyce 69). Ulysses was an immediate success. The first printing sold out, and "within a year Joyce had become a well-known literary figure. Ulysses was explosive in its impact on the literary world of 1922" (de Grazia, 27). Even so, the book faced difficulties in global reception. It was banned in the U.K. and was prosecuted for the obscenity in the Nausicaa episode (Ellmann, 1982). Joyce's inspiration for the novel began as a young boy reading Charles Lamb's Adventures of Ulysses and writing an essay entitled "My Favorite Hero" after being impressed by the wholeness of the character (Goreman, 1939). The idea for the novel grew from a story in Dubliners in 1906, which Joyce expanded into a short book in 1907, before reconceptualizing it as the heady novel in 1914 (Ellmann, 1982). The book can initially seem unstructured and chaotic, and Joyce admitted that he "put in so many enigmas and puzzles that it will keep the professors busy for centuries arguing over what I meant" (The Observer, 2000). The French translator Stuart Gilbert published a defense of Ulysses shortly after its publication in which he supported the novel's use of obscenity and explained its internal structure and links to the Odyssey against accusations of ambiguity. Every episode, Gilbert explained, is connected to the Odyssey by theme, technique, and correspondence between characters. Another instance of Ulysses' literary contribution is his use of stream-of-consciousness, a technique employing carefully structured prose, both humorous and charactering, and involving puns and parodies. Joyce was a precursor to the use of stream of consciousness in the later decades. Similar narrative techniques were used by his contemporaries Virginia Wolfe, William Faulkner, and Italo Svevo. Their style can be better characterized as an "interior monologue, rather than stream of consciousness, is the appropriate term for the style in which [subjective experience] is recorded, both in The Waves and in Woolf's writing generally" (Stevenson, 1992).

         RIMON NRS 1-6 (COMPLETE)

      Berlin : Rimon(1922-1924). 1st Edition. Period Boards with all original illustrated wrappers bound in. 4to. 52, 48, 52, 52, 44, 40 pages ; 32 cm. A complete run (Issues 1-6) of the German Periodical on Jewish Art. In Hebrew. "Mark Wischnitzer (1882-1955) was a scholar of Jewish history... He studied at the University of Vienna and University of Berlin, from which he received his doctorate in 1906. Wischnitzer served as editor of the history section of the Russian-language Jewish Encyclopedia from 1908 to 1913, and later as the editor of the Encyclopaedia Judaica published in Berlin. " (Wikipedia, 2017) "The driving force behind Rimon was a small circle of Russian Jews, headed by historian Mark Wischnitzer and his wife, art historian Rachel Bernstein-Wischnitzer. In late 1921, the couple joined a group of Russian-Jewish émigrés in Berlin. They presented the idea of publishing a Jewish art journal to their friend Leopold Sew, a Russian-Jewish intellectual who was visiting Berlin from Paris, where he had fled after the revolution. Sew was excited by the idea and referred the couple to Eliahu Feinson, who belonged to a group of Jewish-Russian capitalists who supported Hebrew publication projects. Feinson enlisted with fervor in the publication of Jewish art books, and provided the necessary funding for commencing the work. His name appeared on almost all publications of the company as one of its three directors, alongside Dr. Mark Wischnitzer and Alexander Kogan, two of the great Russian publishers who had come to Berlin during this period, and were involved in the production of one of the most esteemed journals to be published in both Russian and German.

         Autograph Letter Signed ("Aleister Crowley"), to publisher Grant Richards, arranging a meeting and mentioning that he is at work on his memoirs

      "31 Wellington Square," Chelsea, [London 1922 - 2 pp. pen and ink on one sheet, recto and verso. 4to. Lead up to Diary of a Drug Fiend. Crowley writes to the British publisher Grant Richards ahead of a meeting which ultimately led to the publication of Diary of a Drug Fiend. Opening with the prime directive of Thelema, the letter reads: "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. The 'open mind' ? - quite as good as the 'Open Door.' Unreasonable? No: but I wish you could hear the Law of Thelema on 'Reason'. However, 3:30 on Tuesday next is marked in my Little Red Book, and perhaps we may replace the open Mind by the Open Cheque. By the way, I am at work on the book, jotting down odd anecdotes as they recur. Three months from now, I should have a full supply. I want, by the way, to sail for Lisbon on July 5. Love is thy law, love under will. Yours truly, Aleister Crowley."Crowley had set up the meeting with Richards in hope of selling him on his memoirs (hence the "odd anecdotes"); Richards declined, and Crowley next pitched him a novel, "a shocker on the subject which was catering to the hysteria and prurience of the sex-crazed public: the drug traffic insanity . I proposed as a title The Diary of a Drug Fiend and sketched out a synopsis of its contents on a sheet of notepaper. This was mostly bluff. I had not really any clear idea of my story" (Confessions, chapter 92). Richards declined this, too, though he suggested Crowley talk to the publisher Collins, who liked the idea and gave Crowley a £60 advance on the manuscript. From June 4 to July 1, at the 31 Wellington Square address from which the present letter was written, Crowley dictated the 120,000 word novel to his then "Scarlet Woman" Leah Hirsig. Collins was so pleased with the result that he immediately gave Crowley an advance on another book (which would ultimately become the Confessions).Having spent the previous two years living with other Thelemites at the Abbey of Thelema in Cefalù, on Sicily, Crowley and Hirsig had come to London at the beginning of May 1922 in desperate need of money. In addition to Diary of a Drug Fiend, Crowley sold articles - on Byron, on drugs, on freemasonry -to several magazines. He did not sail to Lisbon that July as he says he wants to in the letter. (Though he did famously journey to that city in 1930, where, with the help of Fernando Pessoa, he faked his suicide). Faint scattered soiling, horizontal fold 2 pp. pen and ink on one sheet, recto and verso. 4to

A curious personal item; Doyle's main residence from 1907 was Windlesham in Crowborough, East Sussex, where he lived until his death in 1930; indeed he passed away in bed at home, and was buried in the grounds. Throughout his life Doyle was a sportsman extraordinary, indulging in most games and doing well; clearly billiards was a favourite pastime and a table was installed at the house where informal competitions were held. This book prize, awarded in 1927, was almost certainly one of the author's own copies in a bespoke Oxford Street binding (commercial copies were cloth-bound with jacket), plucked from the Windlesham library shelves and inscribed as required. The book is a collection of adventure stories mostly taken from 'The Last Galley' although the final entry had not appeared in a book-form edition. Green and Gibson A55.

In 1883, they went to Geneva, Switzerland, where they were both expelled after aggressive police interrogation.[2] She stayed with the Booth family and worked in the London slums and elsewhere until her marriage to the second son of the founder of the Salvation Army, Ballington Booth in 1886, against her father's wishes.[3] In 1896, Ballington and Maud left the Salvation Army after a dispute with General Booth, to co-found the Volunteers of America. Maud was also known for working to improve the conditions of prisons in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.[1] She later toured on the Chautauqua circuit, moving audiences with her vivid account of life in prisons and calls for reform.

      London: Hurst and Blackett, Ltd.,, [1922]. Octavo. Original deep purplish cloth professionally refurbished, gilt lettered spine. Portrait frontispiece, monochrome plates after Walter von Ruckteschell (von Lettow-Vorbeck's adjutant) and 22 maps. Spine slightly rolled and sunned, binding a little rubbed, light browning throughout, and some offset browning from the insertions, overall very good. Second English edition, two years after the first, which was published in the same year as the Leipzig German first. A "classic memoir by the commander of German forces in East Africa" (Edward G. Lengel, World War I Memories, 2004). A fascinating copy much enhanced by the addition of a quantity of related material, including an autograph letter and postcard signed, a portrait postcard signed, by von Lettow, two typed letters signed from Richard Meinertzhagen concerning his old antagonist. In addition, there is some penciled marginalia concerning troop sixes and dispositions. As follows: Front pastedown: signature of Robert J. Hyland, collector of East Africa Campaign material, dated 1946; mounted small newspaper clipping on occasion of LV's 90th birthday; another clipping from Illustrated London News, short death notice for LV dated Mar. 21, 1964 Front free endpaper, recto: mounted one page typed letter signed, from Richard Meinertzhagen to Hyland concerning his services in East Africa, "I know von Lettow is still alive. He is a first class man, intelligent and with great charm, a splendid soldier and was violently anti-Nazi" (dated 31, III, 1946, written employing Meinertzhagen's famous cursive typewriter). Front free endpaper, verso: one page autograph letter signed from L-V to Hyland, thanking Hyland for his letter, expressing willingness to meet when he "come(s) over to Germany", and a PS "kind regards to Dr. Paul Wolff" (dated 25-6-50). Half-title: 2 mounted clipped magazine portraits of Dr. Schnee & L-V (in campaign hat and uniform). Verso of half-title: mounted autograph postcard signed from L-V to Hyland, thanking him for a letter and telling him date when he will be at home (?1953). Verso of frontispiece portrait: mounted photo of L-V with his wife, Meinertzhagen and the latter's small son, Dan, captioned "Dan's first public appearance when General von Lettow-Vorbeck laid a wreath on the cenotaph at Whitehall 1929" (from Diary of a Black Sheep?). Recto of following blank: mounted portrait postcard of L-V in Schutztruppe uniform, signed in blue ink. Verso: mounted portrait photo of an elderly L-V in civilian clothing, seated, with massive East African Buffalo skull in lap, printed signature. Verso of title page: mounted typed letter signed from Meinertzhagen to Hyland, recalling Hyland's letters about L-V, where the latter is living, explaining that he had got L-V's pension restored, that he would be glad to meet with Hyland, that L-V "was violently anti-Hitler", and ironically that" the story of my life is already written in typescript in 60 volumes... I would make myself liable for hundreds of libel actions... there is much which I have not dared to relate as it would involve me in too many criminal prosecutions" (dated 5, II, 1950). Verso of preface: mounted one page typed letter signed from Konrad Heiden to Hyland, concerning L-V and his relationship to Hitler, " … socially and personally those people - i.e. former officers - and Nazis- used to hate each other like sin" (dated 12/12/46). Verso p.225: two mounted photos by Dobbertin (showing askaris in the field), clipped from magazines. Verso p.227: one image as above. Rear free endpaper, recto: mounted envelope addressed to Hyland containing two two-page typed letters signed from Paul M. Wolff M.D. of Dallas, Texas (envelope dated Nov. 9, 1950; earlier letter dated October 6, 1950), thanking Hyland for the letter and the greetings of his "old boss" L-V, which he had forwarded to Wolff. He tells Hyland that he will send him some of the books on East Africa that he had seen in his home, and tells him a bit about his role in Africa during WWI. The second letter (dated November 8 1950) responds to a list of ten questions Hyland had sent, in quite fascinating detail about his capture by the British. Wolff was a German medical officer on the S.S. Tabora, Deutsch-Ostafrika Lines before the outbreak of the war. He explains where he captured, interned as a POW, his treatment by the British, and much more, including details of L-V's character. Verso rear free and rear pastedown endpapers: mounted copy of articles from the Times. relating to L-V's visit to England in 1929. Loosely inserted group of bibliographic notes on books relating to the East African campaign. Lettow-Vorbeck (1870-1964) conducted one of the most extraordinary campaigns of the Great War. For four years, with a force that never exceeded about 14,000 (3,000 Germans and 11,000 Africans), he held in check a much larger force of 300,000 British, Belgian, and Portuguese troops. Essentially undefeated in the field, Lettow-Vorbeck was the only German commander to successfully invade imperial British soil during the First World War. His exploits in the campaign have been described by the American historian Edwin P. Hoyt as "the greatest single guerrilla operation in history, and the most successful" (The Germans Who Never Lost, 1968).

        [Three maps:] The British Empire at Bay on the Western Front. A visualised map compiled by Albert Close [with:] Index to British War Cemeteries [with:] The Naval War Chart of the North Sea. Compiled by Albert Close.

      London: Edward Stanford, Ltd.,, 1922-23. Western Front map (folded 225 x 275 mm, unfolded 1085 x 1110 mm), coloured and illustrated, dissected into 30 panels and linen-backed,, scale 1:200,000; Cemeteries map (folded 245 x 85 mm, unfolded 960 x 725 mm); Naval map (folded 225 x 168 mm, unfolded 1330 x 990 mm), illustrated, dissected into 36 panels and linen-backed, scale 1:500,000. Housed in two later black grained card library slipcases. Neat library stamps and holograph pressmarks of Brighton Public Libraries on versos. All in remarkably good condition. A group of three very scarce, imposing and fascinating maps, the principal two covering in remarkable detail the complexities of the Great War on the Western Front and in the North Sea, compiled by the Canadian-born cartographer Albert Close. The Western Front map (dated 15 January 1923 and November 1923) – published as a companion piece to the Naval War Chart - carries the sub-title "from confidential maps used at British Headquarters in France and Belgium and from Official Despatches". Stanford's blurb explains that "this is the first map published showing the tremendous German forces massed on the whole British Front, and the actual British forces opposing them on Mar. 21st, 1918. These confidential British and German maps have been kept secret until now. Hundreds of Officers who were in various Divisions all over the Western Front have critically examined this new Map, and confirm its accuracy, especially the lines on March 21st, 1918, and Haig's perilous shortage of Reserves". Intriguingly, Close has chosen as his focus not the Allied breakthrough of August–November 1918 but the positions at 21 March, the date of the opening of "Operation Michael", the German Spring Offensive which threw the British Army into disarray. The Fifth Army, under Sir Hubert Gough, bore the shock of this attack and its "organized battle of retreat" (ODNB) is memorialised on the map ("Fifth Army bore the brunt of the mightiest assault in military history… their cemeteries of dead testify to their stubborn valour in the face of overwhelming odds"). Early and later offensives are noted, including "Foch's great counter attack July 18th 1918" at the Second Battle of the Marne. The map carries glowing press reviews and encomiums from senior British officers Sir John Davidson, Gough, and Lord Byng and includes army-level dispositions, portraits of the leading commanders, losses at various battles, memorials, quotes and illustrations of battle scenes (such as "tank smashing through a machine gun nest"). The war cemeteries maps focusses on the Ypres–Somme battles. The naval map (dated 15 March and "3rd Edition April 1922") is included in the Library of Congress online exhibition "Echoes of the Great War: American Experiences of World War I". It includes a plan of the Battle of Jutland, "principal mine-fields, Zepps destroyed, position of German submarines sunk and naval battles". The Spectator review described it as "ingenious and accurate". There is little information about the cartographer Albert Close; we know that he was based in Ilford, Essex (the Western Front map was printed by Hayden of Ilford Hill). Before the Great War he specialized in charts for fishermen (Close's Orkney and Shetland Sailing Directions for Fishermen, Close's Fishermen's Pilot round the British Isles) and in 1921 Stanford published his Handy Wheel House Chart Book. He also specialized in the history of the Spanish Armada (1588) and managed to work this in to his naval map. "Albert Close… was particularly vehemently anti-Catholic, for example, England was saved by a Divine Hand and the defeat of the Armada was 'a great sermon preached to the Popish and Protestant nations'" (Eugene L. Rasor, English/British Naval History to 1815: A Guide to the Literature, 2004, p. 93). Decidedly scarce: Western Front: Copac cites copies at only three British and Irish institutional libraries (British Library, Scotland, Oxford); War Cemeteries: British Library and Imperial War Museum only (but also National Maritime Museum), not on OCLC; North Sea: not on Copac or OCLC (but we have located copies at the NMM and Library of Congress). These painstaking, densely mapped charts, were a remarkable labour of love and give an exceptional overview of the key areas of British commitment in the Great War.
