Item Description: New York: The Bennett Libraries Inc., 1927, 1927. Octavo. Publisher's deluxe red morocco, titles and decoration to spine gilt in compartments, covers blocked with elaborate gilt design, Tice nude tan calf onlay to front cover, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, full green and red morocco doublures decorated in gilt, green silk moiré endpapers, red silk page marker. Spine lightly browned, slight rubbing to head of spine, a little offsetting to endpapers, page marker loose, partly unopened; an excellent copy. Frontispiece and 9 other plates in two states (10 on japon, 10 on pannekoek paper) with captioned tissue-guards, an additional hand-coloured etching on japon, and an original signed drawing in coloured pencils by Tice. Titles printed in red and black. First Tice edition, one of three copies extra-illustrated with 11 hand-coloured etchings on japon, from a total edition of 1,000 copies, this copy also with a signed full page original sketch in coloured pencils by Tice on the half-title. This special limitation is presented as a manuscript slip, itself signed and hand-illustrated by Tice, laid down to the limitation page with the justification "One of three copies with Original Etchings". These original etchings thus present all ten original plates in two states, and add an additional illustration (facing p. 30) not given in the normal issue. The rest of the edition consists of 247 copies printed on Pannekoek paper, with colour plates and bound in less elaborately decorated full morocco to a design by Tice, and 750 copies in quarter cloth, with uncoloured plates. The only other copy of this special issue that we can trace at auction did not have the original hand-illustration by Tice present in this copy. Clara Tice (1888–1973) was a notorious New York bohemian artist, known as "the Queen of Greenwich Village". She was, according to the New York Times, the first woman in New York to bob her hair, in 1908. She began exhibiting her art from 1910 and in 1915 her fame skyrocketed when the Society for the Prevention of Vice attempted to confiscate her works at the bohemian restaurant Polly's. "Tice was apparently so highly regarded and so instantly recognizable as one of those 'queer artists' that her role in the first Greenwich Village Follies was simply to play herself. As 'Clara,' she stepped out onto the stage at the appointed time, outfitted in one of her typically bizarre bohemian ensembles, and conducted a 'quick chalk talk of nudes, bees and butterflies'" (Sawelsan-Gorse). Throughout the 1920s she illustrated for Vanity Fair amongst other magazines, and illustrated several books with her softly erotic drawings. Women in Dada: Essays on Sex, Gender and Identity, Naomi Sawelson-Gorse, pp. 429-30. Bookseller Inventory # 118763

Item Description: London, Privately Printed, 1892. 8vo, 2 volumes. Original blue cloth; printed labels on spines; pp. xliii, 175; vii, [2], 203, two gold and colour-printed half-title surrounds, etched portrait and 8 etchings on India paper, all retaining tissue guards; label a little chipped, a few corners a lightly bumped; internally very good; provenance: contemporary bookplates of Paisley Free Library and Museum, accordingly stamped and with Discard stamp, shelfmarks in ms. to spines. Privately printed first edition, number 123 of a total printrun of 520, of this new translation. Despite this epistolary narrative being intended as a moral and political mirror held in front of the 18th century reader, the information on Persia is well-founded on Montesquieu's thorough study of works on Persia and his interest in ethnography. Provenance: John Davidson (1857â€"1909), was a Scottish poet, schoolteacher and writer with close links to Paisley, which probably accounts for this London-published book to have been in the Free Library & Museum. This set was presented to them by one Mrs W. E. Wright. Bookseller Inventory # 2088380
