      Verlag: München, Asokthebu O.W. Barth, 1922. Hauptwerk des Universalgelehrten Leonhard Thurneysser (1531 - 1596). Thurneysser erlernte zunächst das Goldschmiedehandwerk anschließend diente er als Famulus des Medizinprofessors Johannes Huber, der ihn auch in die Kunst der Kräuter- und Heilkräuterlehre einführte. Thurneysser erwarb, großenteils auf autodidaktischem Wege, ein umfangreiches Wissen in den Heilwissenschaften der Medizin und Pharmazie sowie in der Botanik, interessierte sich aber gleichermaßen für Mathematik und Astronomie sowie Metallurgie und Mineralogie. Die berufliche Hauptprofession Thurneyssers blieben aber die Medizin und pharmazeutische Botanik. In den Jahren 1569 und 1570 fungierte er als Leibarzt des Bischofs von Münster, Johann III. von Hoya, für den er eine umfangreiche Apotheke errichtete. Anschließend trat er in gleicher Position in die Dienste des brandenburgischen Kurfürsten Johann Georg, nachdem er dessen kränkelnde Frau geheilt hatte. Das hier vorliegende 1578 erschienene Werk über die Wirkungen der "Erdgewechse" kann als Haupthinterlassenschaft seiner pharmazeutisch-botanischen und astronomischen Forschungen gelten. Mit zahlreichen überwiegend botanischen und astronomischen Illustrationen. Die hier angebotene Faksimile-Ausgabe aus dem Jahre 1922 erschien in einer limitierte Auflage von nur 300 Exemplaren sie liegt hier in der äußerst seltenen Prachtausgabe in Ganzleder vor. Der Ganzleder-Großband allenfalls partiell leicht berieben. Sonst sehr gutes Exemplar dieser würdigen Prachtausgabe des historischen Werkes, die nur in wenigen Exemplaren existieren dürfte. Weitere Fotos auf der Homepage des Antiquariats (bitte Art.-Nr. auf der Angebotsseite in das Suchfeld eingeben).

        Gullivers Reise ins Land der Riesen. Eine Reise nach Brobdingnag. Nach dem Englischen des Jonathan Swift. Mit fünfundzwanzig Originallithographien von Lovis Corinth.

      75 (4) Seiten auf Jaoan Bütten Fol., gebundene Ausgabe, Roter Original-Halb-Maroquineinband mit Maroquinecken, goldgeprägtem Rückentitel und Kopfgoldschnitt. Diese Werk wurde im Jahre 1922 vom Propyläen Verlag zu Berlin in einer einmaligen numerierten Auflage von 400 Exemplaren hergestellt. Den Druck des Textes besorgten Gebr. Mann, Berlin, die Lithographien wurden von Hermann Birkholz, Berlin, auf der Handpresse abgezogen. Die Einbände wurden nach Entwürfen von Hugo Steiner-Prag gefertigt. Den Nummern 1 bis 25 sind die sämtlichen Lithos in signierten Drucken auf Japan und eine signierte Radierung auf Japan beigegeben. Die Nummern 26 bis 200 sind beim Druckvermerk signiert und enthalten die signierte Radierung auf Kaiserlich Japan. Die Nummern 201 bis 400 sind im Druckvermerk signiert. Dieses Exemplar trägt die Nummer 172. Lovis Corinth (* 21. Juli 1858 in Tapiau/Ostpreußen - + 17. Juli 1925 in Zandvoort/ Niederlande eigentlich Franz Heinrich Louis Corinth) war ein berühmter deutscher Maler. Neben Max Liebermann, Lesser Ury und Max Slevogt zählt er zu den wichtigsten und einflussreichsten Vertretern des deutschen Impressionismus. Allerdings werden vor allem seine späten Werke häufig als eine Synthese aus impressionistischem und expressionistischem Schaffen angesehen. (wikipedia)

        The Worst Journey in the World. Antarctic 1910-1913. With panoramas, maps, and illustrations by the late Doctor Edward A. Wilson and other members of the expedition. In two volumes.

      Constable 1922 - FIRST EDITION, 2 colour frontispieces with tissue guards, 4 further colour plates, 52 monochrome plates (including 10 folding panoramic collotypes), 5 maps (4 folding), all as called for, generally clean, with occasional spotting at fore-margin, small nick and slight abrasion to final map, vol. I pp. lxiv, 300, [4]; viii, 301-585, [3], 8vo, original linen-backed pale blue boards, backstrips with printed paper labels, duplicate vol. II label tipped in, boards somewhat soiled and spotted, rear hinge of vol.I cracking but holding, paper labels tattered, rubbed at extremities, good. Cherry-Garrard was a novice explorer when he joined Captain Scott's second and final Antarctic expedition as an "assistant zoologist" in June 1910. The popular team member would prove himself a remarkable "sledger", and was warmly commended by Scott himself. Garrard established the expedition newsletter South Polar Times, which was later reproduced in facsimile. Dr. Edward Wilson whose illustrations appeared in the Times, accompanied Scott on the fateful mission to the pole in 1912. Garrard had accompanied the party as far as the Beardmore Glacier, but was sent back on account of his youth. Eight months later, Cherry-Garrard was part of the search party which found the bodies of Scott, Wilson, and Bowers who had died a mere eleven miles from basecamp. Cherry-Garrard's account of Scott's failed mission remains one of the best. 'The best written and most enduring account of exploits in the Antarctic.' (Taurus) 'It was perhaps the only real stroke of luck in Scott's ill fated [Terra Nova] expedition that Cherry-Garrard, the one survivor of the winter journey, happened to be able to describe it so effectively.' (G.B. Shaw) (Taurus 84: Rosove 71.A1)

        Ulysses.

      Paris: Shakespeare and Company,, 1922. Small quarto (233 x 178 mm). Contemporary blue half morocco with the orignal wrappers bound-in, decorative gilt spine, blue linen sides, top edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Housed in a custom made blue cloth solander box, red calf label. Joints rubbed but professionally refurbished; bound without the final blank. An excellent copy. First edition, first printing, number 795 of a total edition of 1,000 copies. Signed by Joyce on the blank before the half-title: "James Joyce, Paris, 26 February 1924". At this time Joyce was already at work on Finnegans Wake and on the previous day (25 February) had penned a postcard to Ford Madox Ford asking "can you please let me have my typescript back and the first proofs?"; Ford, editing the transatlantic review, was to publish the first fragment in the April 1924 issue (see Richard Ellmann, Letters of James Joyce, volume III, 1966, p. 89). Ulysses was published on 2 February 1922 in imitation of the traditional three-tiered French format aimed at both connoisseurs and readers: 100 copies were printed on Dutch handmade paper and signed by Joyce; 150 copies were printed on heavier vergé d'Arches to create a large paper format; and the remaining 750 copies formed a small format trade issue, printed on less expensive vergé à barbes stock.

        Beyond the Pleasure Principle

      London: The International Psycho-Analytical Press,, 1922. Authorized translation from the second German edition by C. J. M. Hubback. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to front board and spine gilt, partially unopened. With the dust jacket. Rear board a little bowed, spine faintly rubbed at tips and with tiny nick to tail, lettering on front board beginning to oxidize, pages very lightly browned as usual, a couple with slight finger-marking, minor foxing to endpapers and endleaves. An excellent copy in a slightly tanned and dust-soiled jacket with a couple of tiny chips and short closed tears. First edition in English, first impression, first issue with the George Allen and Unwin imprint on the dust jacket and no mention of the Hogarth Press on the title page. In Beyond the Pleasure Principle, generally considered his most controversial text, Freud introduced the concept of Eros and further investigated his theory of the death drive, or Thanatos, the human mind being a perpetual battleground for Eros and Thanatos. The Woolfs acquired the rights to publish works for The International Psycho-Analytical Press in 1924. Unsold sheets for the first 6 titles in the series were passed to them and issued with newly printed title pages and dust jackets. Woolmer gives what scant details known of this transaction and lists this title as 21 in his bibliography of the press. Originally published in Germany as Jenseits des Lustprinzips in 1920. A beautiful copy of one of Freud's most important texts, rare in the dust jacket.

        The Theory of the Leisure Class

      New York: B. W. Huebsch,, 1922. Octavo. Original dark green cloth, titles to spine gilt, publisher's device and single-rule panelling to front board in blind. With the dust jacket. Small piece of tissue paper tipped-in next to author's signature. Tiny dampstain to foot of spine, a couple of tiny white marks to front board, contents a little toned. A very good copy in a chipped and toned jacket with partial splits to folds and substantial rodent gnawing top edge of front panel, without any loss of text. A very good copy. Inscribed by the author in pencil on the front free endaper: "John S. Mayfield, Thornstein Veblen, April 1924". John S. Mayfield (1904?1983) was an American bibliophile and collector who was curator of the manuscript and rare book department at the Syracuse University Library in the 1960s. His collection of Algernon Charles Swinburne first editions and manuscripts was considered one of the most complete and is now held by Georgetown University, Washigton D. C. Mayfield's bookplate is pasted onto the jacket's front flap. Originally published by Macmillan in 1899, Norwegian-American professor Thorstein Veblen's first and most successful work was written as a serious economic analysis of contemporary America, but after William Dean Howells gave the book a rave review as a social satire, it became a best-seller. "Into it he poured all the acidulous ideas and fantastic terminology that had been simmering in his mind for years. It was a savage attack upon the business class and their pecuniary values, half concealed behind an elaborate screenwork of irony, mystification and polysyllabic learning" (DAB). "The treatise is essentially an analysis of the latent functions of 'conspicuous consumption' and 'conspicuous waste' as symbols of upper-class status and as competitive methods of enhancing individual prestige. Veblen's term 'conspicuous consumption' has become part of everyday language" (IESS) and in modern economy Veblen goods are those whose demand increases in proportion to their price, in contradiction with the law of demand. This copy is a third printing of the edition published by Huebsch (now Viking Press), which was first published in 1918.

        Hogarths "Arabia" + Cheque from Wilfred Merton Countersigned By Charles Doughty.

      Privately Published, London 1922 - First separate edition, 25 copies signed by the author, this copy numbered "Five" is from the library of journalist and Middle East expert Peter Hopkirk and bears his distinctive small bookplate, [1p., limitation], [2pp., blank] pp.9pp. One of only 25 copies, signed. by Charles M. Doughty's private edition of his review of D.G. Hogarth's Arabia (Clarendon Press, 1922), reprinted from The Observer 19 March 1922. This reprint was arranged by Sydney Cockerell and printed at the Chiswick Press. The reprint bears some minor corrections from the newspaper article, advised to Doughty by T.E. Lawrence, too late for inclusion in the newspaper, see his letter to Doughty, 18.3.22 and confirmed as corrected by Doughty in his letter to TE of 31st March '22. David George Hogarth (1862-1927), archaeologist, Arabian traveller, and keeper of the Ashmolean Museum, author of A Wandering Scholar in the Levant (1896) and The Penetration of Arabia (1904). Hogarth travelled to Carchemish in 1910 with T.E. Lawrence, whom he encouraged to learn Arabic. "With the outbreak of the First World War, Hogarth's knowledge of the Arab world and the Ottoman empire was invaluable" (ODNB). He worked with the Arab Bureau in Cairo. "Hogarth was largely responsible for the difficult and delicate diplomacy which underlay the Arab campaign so brilliantly conducted in the field by his former archaeological disciple, T. E. Lawrence."A fine essay on Hogarth's work, Arabia; its cadences reveal much of Doughty .This is by its limitation an extremly rare survival and we know how strict the limitation was as Doughty confirms the destruction of a twenty sixth copy in a letter to Cockerell. Grey printed wrappers that have conservation repair to spine. Included two newspaper cuttings about Doughty laid in, together with a cheque made out to Doughty by printer Wilfred Merton for 4 guineas dated 1923 and possibly paying for this booklet. Countersigned on the reverse by Doughty. Wilfred Merton for 4 guineas made out to Doughty dated 1923 and possibly paying for this booklet. Wilfred Merton was of course involved with Bruce Rogers and Emery Walker in the printing of "The Odyssey". Highly elusive items. Please request further details.

Two of the rear pages contain some notations on Larkin's travel itinerary and expenses. Larkin's talent as an artist is here very evident as he captures the essence of the Italian country and cityscapes succinctly and accurately; (v) the Original Western Union telegram addressed to Prof. Oliver W.

The condition of most items in the Archive is about Very Good overall, with some edge wear and soiling to the older materials. The contents of the original works and letters are very good.
