        The Pageant of Peking: Comprising Sixty-Six Vandyck Photogravures of Peking and Environs from Photographs by Donald Mennie

      A. S. Watson & Co., Shanghai, China 1920 - 1st printing. Blue silk-covered boards, gilt lettering, gilt and raised silk designs, deckle edges. This is #156 out of 1000 limited copies of this first edition. Significant rubbing, moderate foxing and light soiling to boards, although gilt on front board is legible and somewhat bright. Most of blue silk is missing from spine and extremities. Corners are moderately to significantly bumped. Front gutter is moderately cracked and rear gutter is lightly cracked, but hinges and binding are tight. Three light circular stains to rear board, as though a water glass once sat atop the book. 1 & 5/8" by 5/8" sticker residue on rear board. Trivial to light foxing to interior pages, otherwise interior is quite clean. Edition page (rear flyleaf) is 2/3 loose, but all other pages are tight. All 66 tipped-in photogravures are present and generally bright. Some pages have small numbers written lightly in pencil in the corner, but there are no markings otherwise. Despite its significant cover wear, this remains an impressive copy of this rare, highly collectible first edition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A Savant's Vendetta

      London: Arthur Pearson. (1920). First. First English edition (previously published in the U.S. as The Uttermost Farthing). Cheap paper browned, small spot on the front board, a very good or better copy. This copy Inscribed by Freeman: "P.M. Stone from R. Austin Freeman with cordial good wishes. 3rd April 1939." One of the author's scarcest titles, presumably so because of the execrable leftover wartime paper used in its manufacture. Very seldom found, and never signed or inscribed. .

        Prominent novels and short stories.]

      London, Berlin, Leipzig: Various, [c.1860–1920.] - 45 volumes, octavo. Bound in burgundy half calf by Bayntun-Riviere, titles and centre tool to spine, raised bands, matching cloth boards, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. The occasional minor blemish, overall in excellent condition. A collection of early editions of Trollope's most prominent fictional works including the Barsetshire novels, the parliamentary novels and the dramatic novels. Also included are the "overseas novels" (with the exception of Nina Balatka), the majority of the "comic novels" and four volumes of short stories. Given how prolific a writer Trollope was (he published something like 70 books) and the fact that there was never a collected edition of his entire works produced this is one of the most comprehensive collections that we have come across. A handsomely bound set.

Near fine, with light rubbing to the corners, minor toning to the spine and board edges, else fine. A lovely copy in a beautiful fine binding. Arthur Rackham (1867-1939) was a prolific British artist and illustrator, best known for his deluxe editions of popular children's books. Artistically inclined since childhood, Rackham started out illustrating for newspapers, but it was not until he began drawing for children's literature that he received critical acclaim. In response to his burgeoning fame, Rackham's publisher, William Heinemann, began producing deluxe and trade editions of his illustrated works, the first being Rip Van Winkle in 1905. Deluxe editions were produced in a limited edition of numbered copies (ranging in quantity from 250 - 2,020), bound in vellum bindings, printed on handmade paper, and signed by the illustrator. The trade editions were published concurrently in simple bindings, on thinner paper, and with fewer color plates. This publication strategy benefited both publisher and artist; Rackham produced about one book per year and would have an annual gallery exhibition showing his original artwork for his latest book. The recipient of multiple awards for illustrations, Rackham was a diverse artist with a talent for both the fantastical and the intricacies of human nature.. Signed by Illustrator. Hard Cover. Fine.

        Fine original portrait drawing by Benedikt Dolbin (1883-1971), titled by the artist "Franz Lehar (drawn from life)" and signed by Dolbin just below the portrait

      [Vienna] [ca. 1920]. The composer is depicted in profile, wearing collar and tie. Executed in pen and ink and black chalk on a light yellow background wash. 343 x 250 mm.. "[Lehar] was the leading operetta composer of the 20th century, being primarily responsible for giving the genre renewed vitality. His most successful operetta, Die lustige Witwe, has established a lasting place in the opera as well as the operetta repertory and, along with Offenbach and Johann Strauss II, Lehar has remained one of the most popular composers of light music." Andrew Lamb in Grove online Dolbin (pseud. Fred Pollack) was born in Vienna and studied there. Trained as an engineer, he subsequently studied musical composition with Arnold Schoenberg and became a member of the Viennese group "Die Bewegung." He commenced drawing portraits of leading artistic personalities from ca. 1917 onwards for Viennese newspapers and journals. Because of his Jewish origins, Dolbin's work was banned in Austria in 1935, at which time he emigrated to the United States.
