Item Description: Bibliothèque-Charpentier, Eugène Fasquelle, Éditeur, Paris, 1911. First Edition. One of Jarry's most important works, though unpublished in his lifetime. Most likely begun in 1894 and completed before 1897, Faustroll was the author's attempt at a treatise on his pseudo-scientific philosophy "Pataphysics," in which the author defined it as "the science of imaginary solutions, which symbolically attribute.the properties of objects, described by their virtuality, to their lineaments" (translation of Simon Watson Taylor). When Jarry submitted the manuscript in 1897, his then-editor Alfred Vallette of the Mercure de France declined to publish it, both due to a personal conflict and the work's general unreadability, and it wasn't until four years after the author's death (in 1907) that Eugène Fasquelle acquired and published one of the two extant manuscripts of the work. (See Alastair Brotchie, Alfred Jarry: A Pataphysical Life, pp. 29-30.). Small octavo (18.5cm); original yellow decorative wrappers; [4],323,[1]pp. Spine darkened and a touch cocked, small chip to upper cover fore-edge, extremities a bit toned, else a Near Fine copy.

Item Description: Éditions de la Revue Blanche, Paris, 1900. First Edition. Sequel to Ubu Roi, including the earlier play, here in its sixth printing. Ubu Roi (1896), possibly the longest-enduring school-boy prank in history, was based on Sophocles' Oedipux Rex, with the title character styled after Jarry's hated and anti-semite high school professor Félix-Frédéric Hébert. Ubu Enchaîné, intially advertised in the Mercure de France as Ubu Esclave, and based on Aeschylus' Prometheus Bound, was the least critically successful of the three Ubu plays. Jarry had originally intended to include all three Ubu titles, Roi, Cocu, and Enchaîné, in this volume, although his manuscript calculations for such an edition survive, showing that the projected 350 pp. volume was too much for him. Also of note is the illustration on the limitation page, possibly by the author, which depicts Jarry's familiar the owl, many of whose brethren, both live and stuffed, lodged with him during his early adulthood in Paris. Small octavo (18.5cm); original white printed wrappers; [4],244,[1]pp; illus. on title page verso printed in blue-violet. Spine a bit rubbed, else Near Fine. Bookseller Inventory # 23607

Item Description: Lippincott, Philadelphia, 1910. First American Edition. A famous historical and literary fraud. Backhouse claimed to have based this account of the last years of the Qing Dynasty on a secret diary kept by a high court official, discovered in a residence Backhouse occupied following the Boxer Rebellion. The diary, along with most of the remainder of Backhouse's work, was eventually exposed as a complete fabrication, but not before Backhouse had established a reputation as one of the leading sinologists of his day, received a knighthood, and endowed the Bodleian Library with an impressive collection of Chinese manuscripts (still called the Backhouse Collection), many of highly dubious provenance. A highly entertaining account of Backhouse's checkered career may be found in Hugh Trevor-Roper's A Hidden Life: The Enigma of Sir Edmund Backhouse (Lon: 1976). Royal octavo (25cm). Original yellow cloth, printed in red on spine and front cover; top edge gilt; xv, 525pp; 27 inserted leaves of plates (halftones), including frontispiece; 2-page map of Peking in-text. Inconspicuous mend to rear hinge (internal); slight darkening to spine; still a fresh, straight copy, Very Good or better. Bookseller Inventory # 23662
