Wither, George
San Francisco: Privately Printed [at The Grabhorn Press], 1921. Limited Edition. From a small edition for the printer (unknown number), octavo size, [6] unnumbered pp. An early Grabhorn Press item, printed in 1921; number 35 in the bibliography, as Edwin and Robert had only arrived in San Francisco the year before, in 1920. Per the Bibliography, 100 copies were privately printed for Hugh Thomas, with his greeting printed in red, and issued as stitched sheets. There were "also some copies, with a new donor's greeting in black, printed by Ralph Henry Thatcher, an employee of the Press, for himself at Christmas, 1921". This is one of those few copies, with no indication of how many were printed. He was also probably responsible for the different binding, as the main edition was issued in wrappers. The main edition of 100 copies would have had the donor's greeting printed in red, printed for Hugh Thomas. George Wither's (1588-1667) "Christmas Carol" was first published in "Fair-virtue, the Mistresse of Philarete" in 1622. This copy from the library of Marjorie and Martin Mitau, with their beautiful bookplate (an etching signed by the artist). Martin Mitau (1900-1973) and Marjorie Mitau (1906-1983) were both prominent San Franciscans and lived in the Bay Area all their lives; Martin was a member of Roxburghe Club of San Francisco and the Book Club of California and we can surmise with very little doubt that they knew the Grabhorns and their work. ___DESCRIPTION: Original light tan laid paper over boards, the bookplate of the Mitaus on the front pastedown, title page with greetin … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pearson, Ralph M. (Artist)
Kansas City: American Bookplate Society, 1921. Pearson, Ralph M. No. 51 of 250 copies, octavo size, 12 loose pages, signed by the artist. Ralph M. Pearson (1883-1958) was an American printmaker who specialised in etching and created stunning prints of landscapes and the working class; he took a painterly approach to etching, using a variety of marks to capture the spirit of his subjects. During his life, he received awards from the California Society of Etchers and the American Bookplate Society, among many others. He also exhibited at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco, showing many of the bookplates in this collection. These twelve bookplates demonstrate Pearson's finesse in the fields of etching and bookplate design; each are signed by the artist in pencil beneath the plate, and arranged chronologically to show the development of Pearson's style, from the pure landscapes of his early bookplates to the pictorial symbolism of his later designs. This collection includes bookplates for Ruth R. Pearson, Florence M. Hendershot, Frank O. Lowden (a Republican politician who served as the 25th Governor of Illinois), Wallace Heckman, Ruth Morris, Leroy Truman Goble, Elizabeth Faulkner, Albert and Margaret De Silver (founding members of the American Civil Liberties Union), Virginie Migeon Swift, Florence Lowden, Irving and Ione Scales, and Thomas Alexander Mellon (of the influential Mellon family in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania). The bookplate created for Albert and Margaret De Silver received the award from the American Bookplate Society. ___DESCRIPTION: Fold … [Click Below for Full Description]

1921. William Hope Hodgson - The eight "cheap editions" published by Holden and Hardingham between 1920 and 1921, all in original dust jackets. The titles are: Carnacki the Ghost Finder, The Night land, Men of the Deep Waters, The House on the Borderland, The Boats of Glen-Carrig, The Luck of the Strong, Captain Gault and The Ghost Pirates All eight cheap editions published shortly after Hodgson's death, in their original dust jackets, all illustrated in the same style and using the same colour palette. An important edition, as aside from a few magazine appearances Hodgson would not be in print again until his resurrection by Arkham House in the 1940s. Three are bound in cloth, all from 1920, with the later five in cheaper paper boards. The bindings are generally firm, the boards mostly clean with only minor bumping and rubbing, some with varying degrees of fading, Captain Gault has fared slightly worse than the other seven with loss to the paper at the bottom of the front board and a knock to the rear board. The text blocks are age browned and slightly dusty, all have the same bookseller's label to the front pastedown. The dust jackets are mostly slightly grubby with minor loss and short closed tears, some have small tape repairs or tape burns from old repairs to the reverse, a few have more significant loss and rubbing and two are substantially complete. A very rare complete set of Hodgson's weird, fantastic supernatural and nautical novels and short story collections, which to judge by the uniformity of condition and the bookseller's labels may well have been together si … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris: 1921. 4to. ALS from Cocteau dated 13 décembre 1921 from 10 rue d'Anjou (his mother's apartment) on his return from Switzerland. Cocteau tells his frecipient not to miss the performance of the chore by Schoenberg in Paris at the salle des Agriculteurs. Mme Cocteau s'installe au 10, rue d'Anjou en 1910 et elle y habitera jusqu'à la guerre de .. (Jean Cocteau, Lettre-plainte, Roland Saucier éditeur, Paris, 1926.) Arnold Schoenberg (Paris : Fayard, 1993), p. 172-173... partielle, le 15 decembre 1921, a la salle des Agriculteurs, Provenance: José Chaidron (1913-1997) Comme l'avait dit Jean-Pierre Lambot lors du décès de José Chaidron en juillet 1997 : « La Glycine était plus encore qu'un hôtel devenu galerie d'art. Elle était l'expression des passions de José, et Dieu sait s'il en avait. On peut dire que chaque vitrine du rez-de-chaussée abritait une collection qui était chaque fois une passion : Jean Marais, Jean Cocteau, la numismatique, la géologie, les statuettes religieuses, et puis aussi cette extraordinaire série de miniatures consacrées au pont Saint Lambert. Chacune de ces collections était en définitive une facette de l'esprit envieux mais aussi imaginatif de José Chaidron » Au fil des années, la Glycine est devenu un véritable temple de l'Art. Les premiers à y exposer seront deux ecclésiastiques : Bonaventure Feuillin et Cornerotte. Des centaines d'autres suivront. Parmi eux, on peut citer Maringer, Schuddeboom, Marie Howet, Albert Raty, Benjamin Gourmet, etc. Tous y laisseront des souvenirs inoubliables et contribueront à la renommée de l'établissement.

A gorgeously illustrated private production from the golden age of children's illustration, by an unknown or pseudonymous artist-author credited only as "Roland." A cautionary tale of the dangers of fire, FEUERFUNKCHEN ("Little Spark") partakes strongly of the German folktale tradition, somewhere midway between the Brothers Grimm and Heinrich Hoffmann. In measured couplets enhanced by singular watercolors, the book's lesson strongly recall the Very Sad Story of the Matches from Hoffmann's "Der Struwwelpeter," but what Roland lacks in Hoffmannian sadism and drollery, he more than makes up for in grandeur. The deftly designed and boldly colored illustrations evoke primal terror with a real hint of the sublime. The storyline echoes its famous predecessor in beginning and ending with a warning to beware and be careful, but the lingering message is less one of obedience to authority than of fearful respect for the element of fire. Where Hoffmann's naughty little girl burns hersel … [Click Below for Full Description]

WEGENER, Alfred
Braunschweig: Vieweg & Sohn, 1921. 1st Edition. Soft cover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 8vo (224 x 143 mm). 48 pp., 3 plates. Original publisher's wrappers, printed in red and black, spined lettered in black (short split at fold towards head of spine, minor soiling). Text little age toned only, a few pencil markings at fore-margin. Provenance: Hirschwaldsche Buchhandlung Berlin (small sticker to inner front wrapper). A fine, unsophisticated copy. ---- FIRST EDITION, very rare. As a scientist, Wegener was extremely versatile. 106 of his 170 publications treat meteorological topics. The doctoral thesis however treated astronomy. In some way, his later work on lunar craters and meteorites can be regarded as a continuation of his early astronomical studies. Wegener was concerned with the shape of impact craters. He made experiments using cement powder and in 1921 wrote the monograph Die Entstehung der Mondkrater (The origin of lunar craters). In this work, he expressed the view that the great majority of lunar craters were formed by the impact of meteorites. An opinion at that time advocated by few outsiders only, but which is generally accepted today. Mott T. Greene, Alfred Wegener and the Origin of Lunar Craters. Earth Sciences History, Vol. 17, No. 2, 1998, pp. 111-138. Als Wissenschaftler war Wegener außerordentlich vielseitig. 106 von seinen 170 Veröffentlichungen behandeln meteorologische Themen.

Smyshlyaev, V.S.
Izhevsk: Proletkul't, 1921. 88 pp. 24x18 cm. In original illustrated wrappers in art nouveau style. Good, cracks and tears of the spine, soiling of the wrappers, faded Soviet bookshops' stamps on the back cover. First edition. One of 2000 copies. Extremely rare provincial edition. Due to a lack of educational institutions in the early 1920s books were the main tool of likbez and education in general. Infant Soviet theatre as we know it was ready to accept new recruits but was lacking guidance. So manuals like this editions came in very handy for a new generation of actors, directors, writers. The author dissects all aspects of stage work from choosing plays, role assignment, improvizations to different methods of learning lines and preparing to go on stage. A very interesting cross section of evolution of Russian theatre and theatre education.

[WWI.] CURIE, Marie.
1921. 8vo, pp. [iv], 143, [1]; with 16 half-tone plates and numerous text illustrations; printed on poor quality and as a result somewhat fragile and delicate, though expertly repaired notably along the gutters of the first few leaves, and with several marginal repairs using Japanese paper; opening slightly restricted and caution required however, and edges still somewhat fragile; First edition, though a rather fragile copy, of this important work giving a summary of her pioneering efforts during World War I, and providing an informative account of the scientific advances of radiology during the war. It is much rarer than her technical publications. Curie devoted much of her time during the four years of the war to equipping automobiles in her own laboratory with x-ray apparatus, these cars becoming known in the war zone as "little Curies". 'Marie had established a fleet of donated vehicles outfitted with dynamo-powered x-ray units. One car carried Marie, Irène, and a military staff consisted of a doctor, an assistant, and a driver. The apparatus itself was fairly straightforward, but the task was daunting. In many cases the men were very badly wounded ... by the time the first radiology unit had set off towards the front on 1st November 1914, 310,000 French soldiers had already died and 300,000 were wounded. For a young person of seventeen who had lived within a protected circle of friends and relatives, the scenes of horror and misery were a great shock. A short nursing course given by Les Dames des France left Irène ill prepared for what she would see and experience. The … [Click Below for Full Description]

Used. Rare book by Princess Kadria Hussein of Egypt. Printed in 1921. Covers Turkish History, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk and the Revolution of 1918-1923. Personal narratives. Publisher: Rome: Impr. Editrice "Italia." 267 pages with 10 b/w photos. The text is in French: First paragraph says, on the 10th of April at 4:30, the destroyer was leaving the Italian city of brindisi; carrying the Turkish delegation. Second paragraph says it was a beautiful day. Like a great seabird, all white, he went far away, towards his mother land, carrying his light wings, the hearts of superb wrestlers, who all beat together getting ready for the supreme sacrifice. Kadriye Hüseyin (1888-1955) who also used other nicknames as a journalist and writer and who lived in Ottoman's last and Republic's first period, is one of the last princesses of Hidiv descendance in Egypt. She was born in Cairo and stayed in Egypt for her whole life. After spending the years 1922-1930 in the chalet of Huber in İstanbul with certain cultural activities, she returned to Egypt and there, she passed away. After being the guest of Atatürk between April 16, 1921 and May 24, 1921, she published her observations and impressions about the report of the Comission of Research, Greek cruelty and the Turkish National Struggle of Independence by arranging them as notes and letters, with the name "Lettres D'angora La Sainte" and language of French. (1921). [Attributes: First Edition]
