About this Item: 89 Norfolk Road Littlehampton. 15 October, 1901. Miles published two books with Richards: 'The Teaching of Jesus To-Day' (1899) and 'A History of Rome to 500 a.d.' (1901), the latter having appeared shortly before the writing of the letter. The work proposed by Miles in this letter does not appear to have been published by Richard or anyone else. 2pp., 12mo. Bifolium. In good condition, lightly aged. The letter begins: 'Dear Richards, | Would you be likely to publish a Vol. on | "How to Breathe" | in your "How-to" Series? There wd. Be plain-line illustrations. The Indian Yoga System wd. be alluded to, but not followed implicitly.' He turns to 'the Roman History Reviews', 'lots' of which he will be prepared to disperse: 'I daresay 1000 or more – before the end of the year or early next year'. Beneath the signature Richards has written: '500 sent | Oct 16'. Seller Inventory # 20672

About this Item: 68 Grand Parade Brighton. 20 January, 1902. 4pp., 12mo. Bifolium. In good condition, with light signs of age and wear. After following Horton's 'kind advice' concerning 'Mr Hedgcock's & my little alphabet', 're some sketches with more action in them', he has been to 'Town' to show the designs to the publishers Grant Richards. He 'called in person on Thursday but after some delay they have eventually rejected the Alphabet. [.] Evidently from what I was told the sketches such as you advised would have been more what they wanted', so he will do them again 'in that style and try again with other people'.

About this Item: 17 East 42nd Street, New York, NY, 8 Feb., 1936. Writer on Wine. One page, 4to, chipped, fold marks, yellowed but text clear. "Your inference with regard to that particular appendix is quite correct. The publishers did get cold feet and the appendix, to my considerable disgust, was omitted. / Apparently Messrs. Routledge felt that the British libel laws made publication of the facts with regard to dishonest shippers somewhat hazardous. I, myself, feel that a dishonest wine merchant could scarcely care to come before a British jury with a demand for damages when all that has been said concerning him was that he had been convicted of fraud several times by the French Courts./ However, as you realize, of course, the responsibility for such a thing would lie with the publishers, and the publishers in this case prefer to play safe." Prob. talking about Schoonmaker, Frank and Marvel, Tom, "The Complete Wine Book". London, George Routledge, 1935. Richards, the publisher, has drafted a reply in pencil on the verso of this letter, writing as an author not a publisher. He sympathises. Seller Inventory # 1934

About this Item: c., 1921. 2 TLsS, 3pp., 8vo and 12mo, latter damaged with loss of heading. First, on his publisher's letterhead, 8 St Martin's Street, Leicester Square; 1 April 1921. 'Mr. Pinker [RL's agent] has reminded me - and I did not want reminding - how shockingly I seem to have behaved over "The Pleasures of Ignorance". You can attribute it to anything you like (except lack of interest in your work), although as far as the last fortnight is concerned I have been ill. But I make nothing of that. You know, though, that I did want to make this book part of a large deal - the Life of Shelley, the History of Ireland, and so on - which we discussed when we last met. If that has not matured it is nobody's fault. I realise the difficulties. [.] Mr. Pinker's letter, therefore, was very disturbing. I sent down to him at once this morning and he made no secret of the fact that he did not want us to have the book, and in the circumstances, and in order to punish us for our delay, he has increased very much the terms he asked us both in regard to the royalties and the advance, which he has doubled. Rather than not have the book after it has grown up, so to speak, in the office, we are going to agree to the increased royalties and the doubled advance [.]'. Second, lacking place and date. He asks if it is not 'the time when we could properly revive the question of your writing a book on Ireland? The arrangement into which we entered was interrupted by your ill health, but now, if as I hope you are better, it would be an even better time for such a book to be written.' With autograph postscript. Seller Inventory # 15814

About this Item: [Hurst]: Peacocks Press, 1952. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Cockerell boards, printed paper label. Spine very slightly darkened and very slightly rubbed at foot. Edition limited to 200 numbered copies, this no. 1 and the publisher's own, with his (Alan Anderson, "Et in Arcadia ego"; and Will Carter, blue) book-labels; later pencilled ownership signature of the Corvo collector Robert Scoble. Printed by Guido Morris. "Conscious that he was being criticised for the shoddiness of his previous publications," Robert Scoble records in The Corvo Cult, "Sims this time put the printing in the hands of a devoted Corvine . . . 'Letters to Grant Richards [Scoble quotes the Guido Morris scholar Anthony Baker] . . . gave Morris his only opportunity of giving typographical expression to his long-standing admiration for Corvo. At Langford, Angus McBean remembers, he had first editions of all the Corvo titles then published, and had starved himself to get them. "There is a touch of Corvo about him" remarks Sven Berlin, and Morris himself writes that possibly he “enjoyed the Corvo so much because I was a terrific Corvo fan, and perhaps a kindred spirit". Some copies were printed on blue paper, and these were supposed to be the de luxe part of the edition; but Morris prefers the copies on a very white handmade, "probably one of my finest pieces of printing".'" In his catalogue 107 Sims offered the copy he inscribed on publication to Martin Secker, commenting, "A review in the T.L.S. censured the lack of editorial comment in this book which led to a relative of Grant Richards taking steps re libel on G.R.; Martin Secker intervened and the matter was happily resolved." Ten extra, unnumbered, copies were printed on Hodgkinson azure hand-made paper (and bound variously by Sangorski). The standard issue sold for 32s 6d. Significantly, the publisher has not filed in his own copy the precautionary postscript "apology" notice issued to placate Grant Richards's family. Despite all, Richards emerges respectably from this (one-sided) correspondence of 1899-1902. Woolf A13. Seller Inventory # GS100144

About this Item: "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. Seller Inventory # 308369
