        On the structure and relations of Notharctus, an American Eocene primate.

      1920 - New York: American Museum of Natural History. 1920. 4to. Sometime bound in quarter maroon leather, grey cloth boards, gilt lettering to spine; pp. 49 - 243, 54 plates including 8 removable stereoscopic slides; partially uncut, very good. Reprint from Memoirs of the American Museum of Natural History, New Series, Volume III, Part II. Notharctus was a genus of lemur-like primate that lived in North America and Europe roughly forty million years ago. W.K. King (1876 - 1970) was a leading palaeontologist and expert on mammalian dentition whose work on human evolution led him to study several different species of early primate. This memoir is considered a landmark work because it is one of the most detailed studies of a fossil primate ever made and because of its contribution to our understanding of the ancestors of man.

        Handbill]: The 'He' Vampire. With No Apologies to Kipling

      no publisher, [No place - Los Angeles? 1920 - Small handbill. Approximately 4.25" x 7". Fine. A 29-line poem about women deferring to their pampered husbands, apparently in response to Kipling's poem "The Vampire," a soliloquy about the tender and bruised hearts of men who place their hopes in unfeeling women. The poem mimics some of the tropes and rhyme schemes of the Kipling poem. The final stanzas celebrate the reversal of that state of affairs:"But praise be sung in every tongueFor equal rights thruout the land!At last the men are on the run,Every single mother's son,And we the victory have won!(And they can't understand.)"Presumably the poem was prepared upon some triumph for women's rights, most likely the achievement of the vote, whether at the state or federal level is unclear. While there is no place of publication, our strong suspicion is that it was published in California. *OCLC* locates no copies. It does locate a single copy of a piece of sheet music by an author with this name published in Los Angeles in 1916.

        The Theory of Relativity.

      London: Methuen & Co. Ltd,, 1920. The Special & the General Theory, a Popular Exposition. Authorised Translation by Robert W. Lawson, with Five Diagrams and a Portrait of the Author. Octavo. Original red cloth, title blocked in blind to front cover and to spine in gilt. 8 pages of inserted advertisements. Portrait frontispiece of author by Hermann Struck, 5 diagrams in text. An excellent copy, in unusually bright cloth. First edition in English, translated from the third German edition (1918) by Robert W. Lawson. This is the first appearance of any of Einstein's works in English. The translator was a lecturer in physics at the University of Sheffield, and an honorary Assistent (assistant lecturer) at the Vienna Radium Institute from 1913. He was held as a prisoner of war while working in Vienna, during which time he polished his German. Lawson did more than translate this work: the additional chapter (Appendix III) written by Einstein for this edition, "The Experimental Confirmation of the General Theory of Relativity", was added at Lawson's urging, who thought the book would be more accessible if its author could provide a proof of the general theory. Relativity: The Special & the General Theory is an account intended to be accessible to the general public, which Einstein tested by reading drafts to his step-daughter Margot, "pausing frequently to ask whether she indeed got it" (Isaacson, p. 232). Einstein took the opportunity to publish the present English language edition when interest in general relativity grew after the theory was confirmed experimentally by Arthur Eddington's eclipse observations of 1919.

        [Photo album]: Al Martin Agency Photo Album of Aerial Acts and Circus Acts during 1956-1958 at the Bradford Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts

      Boston, Massachusetts. 1920-1960. Quarto measuring 11.5" x 10". 59pp. Contemporary black binder with a red and yellow "Al Martin Agency" flyer slide into the front cover pocket, with ephemera from the 1920s to the late 1950s. Small tears and chips thus near fine and near fine photographs with some small tears at the corners. A scrapbook filled with different pictures and written articles about aerial performers doing their acts at the Bradford Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts for the Al Martin Agency, during the mid to late 1950s as well as earlier pictures from the 1920s and 1930s of aerial performers and animal acts. Contains 32 gelatin silver sepia toned or black and white photographs measuring between 10" x 8" to 9.5" x 7.5", as well as flyers, printed articles, and typed press releases. The photographs depict different aerial performance groups posed together as well as their performances mid-air. Smiles and looks of excitement can be seen on the faces of the performers even in the photographs of them jumping, swinging, and twirling through the air. Most of the flyers are from the 1950s while the photographs are from the 1920s through to the 1930s which include the larger group photos of the aerial performers. One photograph catches a female performer almost horizontal with the board she's jumped from and another depicts two performers high up in the sky swinging on high-poles. Aside from the traditional acrobatic photos there are a couple of other acts: a man in cannon, Gee Gee Engesser on a sled with her arctic wolves, "The Alaskans," pulling her along, and the Brick Brothers with their monkey, Mr. Murphy. Several of the photographs are Inscribed to Alfred Martin from various people like Jack and Chuck Brick, Marilyn Steele, Gee Gee Engesser, the entire Val Jean Lake Orchestra, and other groups of performers. Several pictures feature animals acts like pigs climbing stairs and sliding down a slide and seals doing tricks for fresh fish. There is also a couple flyers for the Brick Brothers and their "Trampolene(sic) Monkey," Mr. Murphy. Some of the flyers are printed by Al Martin and feature the logo, location of the hotel, a picture of the act, and a small description of the performers. One description reads, "A gorgeous night spectacle as well as daytime thriller, climaxed with fireworks". While the performers pictures are in black and white, the flyer's illustrations are done in single bright colors such as oranges, purples, and blues. The last few pages of the scrapbook are press releases written by Alfred Martin about the different aerial performers. Each is about a page long with a short description of where the performers are from and the type of act they do. The performers written about include The Rooneys, Sensational Ortons, Aerial Charltons, and The Stardusters.An interesting look back at the amazing aerial performers and other circus acts that would come to act at the Bradford Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts during the 1920s through to the late 1950s. .

        Sleeping Beauty.

      London: William Heinemann, 1920. Signed limited deluxe edition. Quarto, original half vellum over cream boards, pictorial endpapers, top edge gilt. One of 625 numbered copies signed by the illustrator Arthur Rackham. Printed on English hand-made paper with an additional color plate. Illustrations: 25 full page silhouettes, comprising 9 in color (frontispiece and 4 double plates)--and 16 in black (including 4 double illustrations); one mounted colored plate; silhouette head- and tail-pieces and other silhouettes throughout the text, in black. In very good condition. "Rackham's fanciful imagination gave his illustrations instant recognition, and his dedication to illustration kept him in the public eye for 30 years" (Hodnett, 233). Like his Cinderella (1919), The Sleeping Beauty relied "almost wholly for [its] effect on silhouette... Rackham [was] a master of the medium, being able to evoke character and humor by profile and gesture alone, and allowing the two-dimensional effect of his pen work to lead the reader through the book and keep the story going" (Hamilton, 118).

      [Berlin: Paul Graupe, 1920]. Folio. Portfolio of 34 etchings used for Frank's magnificent illustrated edition of Hamlet (J. Schroder, 1920). Engravings housed in cloth-backed portfolio with marbled paper over boars and stamped title label on the upper cover; light wear to the portfolio; first and last etching a trifle toned from the portfolio else a clean suite. While the book is fairly uncommon, to find a suite of etchings is all the more unusual. There was a smaller edition of 12 Roman numeral copies from a larger limitation that were issued with an additional suite of etchings. It seems likely that this is a waylaid suite. 1 etching pencil-signed by Frank.

Another shows crowds of people walking around on a busy street in London. Many of the postcards are from Valentine & Sons, a printing company that grew to be Scotland's leading manufacturer of picture postcards. Most of their postcards were real photograph cards numbered on the front in hand, which sometimes made the figures illegible. Some of the postcards have also been handpainted. The sepia photographs feature some people at a church, boats, and locations in a forest. An extensive collection of real photograph post cards and pictures circa 1920s. .

Several of the steel/zinc plates are from Tice's illustrations that appear in "Woman & Puppet: A Spanish Romance", "The Twilight of the Nymphs", "One Hundred Merrie and Delightsome Stories [Les Cent Nouvelles Nouvelles]", and "Aphrodite". Most were printed privately by the Pierre Louys Society in 1924-1927. The steel/zinc plates are both halftone and line blocks with different details in each, set for a single picture. Many of the pictures have two or three blocks to create the layers of the illustration.The copper electrotype blocks are most likely duplicate blocks and feature a full story of illustrations. Though the illustrations are not found in any book to date, they seem to emulate Clara Tice's illustration style with more detail. Tice lived until 1973, however much of her popular artwork is from the 1920's and 1930s. These blocks could be Tice's work in the later years of her life. The plates are cohesive and follow an erotic story line. Several plates feature interracial lesbians having sex with a French Rococo/Regency Era theme, as well as some with men and women having sex. The illustrations are incredibly erotic, even showing one female masturbating. The copper plates are nailed into the wood blocks and while not dated are most likely pre-1940s as most plates started to be glued down to the blocks in the 1940s. Clara Tice was born in 1888 and was one of the women first to bob her hair, wear short dresses, and roll up her stockings in the 1910-1920s. She was labeled the "Queen of Greenwich Village" and was a prominent Dada artist. She studied with Robert Henri and was featured in the first exhibition of Independent Artists under him. She was close with the Arensberg Circle which included well-known artists and free thinkers from the time such as Walter and Louise Arensberg, Marcel Duchamp, Man Ray, Charles Demuth, and Beatrice Wood. Tice was known for her erotic illustrations which lead to Anthony Comstock, leader of the New York City's Society for the Suppression of Vice, chastising and trying to take her pictures down at a popular bohemian restaurant named Polly's. Comstock deemed Tice's illustrations to be immoral. This negative experience increased Tice's popularity and her artwork was featured in magazines like Vanity Fair, The Quill, Rogue, Cartoons Magazine, and The New York Times. Much of Tice's book illustrations and artwork were then privately printed by the Pierre Louys Society to avoid censorship. However, despite the provocative nature of her drawings, her most well-known book is the "ABC's of Dogs". An extensive collection of electrotype and printing blocks featuring Clara Tice's pioneering erotic artwork. .

Contains 62 black and white or sepia toned gelatin silver photographs measuring between 4" x 6" and 8" x 10", without captions. Near fine photo album with near fine photographs. A collection of amateur photography taken of the English countryside with the people in what appears to be clothing from the 1920s and visible billboard that places them in the East Sussex area of the country. The photographer used soft focus and matte paper reminiscent of the style of early 20th Century photographers such as Edward Steichen and Dorthea Lange. The photos concentrate on the landscape of the British country, with photos of old homes covered in ivy, romantic walkways, and stone bridges. The coast and small waterways are seen here as well as photos of creeks making their way through rock faces, and waves crashing on a rocky beach. A few of the images have human subjects, some posed, such as one of a girl in a bathing costume and swim cap on a rock, while others are candids of people working on a dock or walking down a road. The stonework of old churches is captured here as well as farm animals roaming in fields.A pleasing and artistic collection of images showing the natural beauty of the British country and the skills of an amateur photographer.

      London: William Heinemann,, 1920. The Story of Shackleton's Last Expedition 1914–1917. Illustrated. Octavo. Original dark blue cloth, spines and front cover lettered in silver, front cover with large silver block of Endurance stuck in ice, publisher's device in blind to rear board, top edge blue. Colour frontispiece and 87 half-tone plates, folding map at the rear. Minor wear to extremities, occasional light foxing, small tear to head of map stub; a very good copy. First edition, third impression of Shackleton's account of the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition (issued three months after the first impression). "The failure of Shackleton's Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition to even reach the Antarctic continent, much less to cross it via the South Pole, has become the great polar success story of the twentieth century" (Books on Ice). Shackleton embarked in 1914 on the Endurance to make the first traverse of the Antarctic continent; a journey of some 1800 miles from sea to sea. But 1915 turned into an unusually icy year in Antarctica; after drifting trapped in the ice for nine months, the Endurance was crushed in the ice on October 27. "Shackleton now showed his supreme qualities of leadership. With five companions he made a voyage of 800 miles in a 22-foot boat through some of the stormiest seas in the world, crossed the unknown lofty interior of South Georgia, and reached a Norwegian whaling station on the north coast. After three attempts. Shackleton succeeded (30 August 1916) in rescuing the rest of the Endurance party and bringing them to South America" (DNB). Amazingly, all members of the Endurance party survived the ordeal, attributing their survival to Shackleton's exceptional leadership qualities. In recent years, this factor has led to the re-interpretation of the book in terms of a leadership and man-management manual, and several influential attempts have been made to distil from the narrative the underlying principles of Shackleton's command in order that they might be applied more widely. As Apsley Cherry-Garrard remarked in Worst Journey in the World; "For a joint scientific and geographical piece of organization, give me Scott; for a Winter Journey, Wilson; for a dash to the Pole and nothing else, Amundsen; and if I am in the devil of a hole and want to get out of it, give me Shackleton every time". With the ownership inscription of George E. Cox to the front free endpaper, with an additional note to the half-title, "Lecture 14th February 1920". Cox, a Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve, was awarded the Distinguished Conduct Star as a result of his bravery aboard a motor torpedo-boat in the South West Pacific in 1942. He and three other officers were interviewed as the basis of W. L. White's 1942 work They Were Expendable, which became the basis of the 1945 film of the same name directed by John Ford and starring Robert Montgomery and John Wayne.

        Poems

      Alfred A. Knopf, New York 1920 - The first edition, published by Alfred A. Knopf in 1920. A near fine example of an uncommon book with a prior owner's signature. While published in a conventional paper dust jacket this particular copy has apparently been married to a glassine wrapper. However, book and jacket would appear to have been together for quite some time. The glassine wrapper is near fine with a few short edge nicks. A nice copy of an important collection.
