With the publication of Jacob's Room the decision was taken to establish the Hogarth Press as a business concern and in future to publish all of Mrs Woolf's works. Mr Woolf thought that in order to acknowledge the support given by the 'A Subscribers' to the early publications of the press each subscriber was send a signed copy of Jacob's Room" - Kirkpartick (A Bibliography of Virginia Woolf). A.L. Dakyns was a political economist and correspondent of J.M. Keynes. Kirkpatrick A6a [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Winter Village of the Minatarres

      Schmidt and Guenther, [Leipzig 1922 - From the scarce Leipzig edition printed from the original copper-plates. Limited in number, the prints from the Leipzig edition are more scarce than, and compare favorably to, the first edition. (David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 85, p.18) A highly atmospheric scene executed by Bodmer during the winter of 1833-1834 when the travellers stayed at Fort Clark on the banks of the upper reaches of Missouri River. In November 1833 Prince Maximilian and Bodmer made a nine-hour trek from the Fort to one of the Hidatsa winter villages (probably Eláh-sa) and stayed for a couple of days. Composed of about eighty households closely packed amidst the sheltering timber the village was the largest of the Hidatsa settlements on the Knife River. Here a number of figures are gathered in the foreground, wrapped in their buffalo robes to watch a pair of young men keep warm by playing the hoop and pole game that was one of the most common and widespread of all North American Indian games. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. They arrived in Boston in July 1832, traveled on to Philadelphia, where they stayed with Napoleon Bonaparte's elder brother Joseph. From here they headed west across Pennsylvania across the Alleghenies to Pittsburgh and the Ohio country, visiting all the important German settlements en route. Their most important stop on their route west was at the utopian colony of New Harmony in Indiana. The Prince spent five months there in the company of some of the country's leading scientific men, and studying all the relevant literature on backcountry America. On 24 March 1833 the party reached St. Louis, Missouri, and the start of the journey into Indian country. David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint /Spring 1985, p.18. Cf.Graff 4648; cf. Howes M443a; cf. Pilling 2521; cf. Sabin 47014; cf. Wagner-Camp 76:1. Aquatint engraving by L. Weber after Bodmer. [Attributes: First Edition]

      Harcourt, Brace, New York 1922 - First Printing (no further printings noted), Second Issue, with 'Lyte' for 'Purdy' and 'any' for 'my' p. 49 (only 9500 copies of the first issue were printed before those two corrections were made). Thick 8vo: [6],401,[7]pp. Publisher's royal blue cloth, upper cover and spine lettered in blue (negative of orange title blocks) and orange; cream-colored dust jacket printed in French blue and black. Fine (very lightly read, if at all), with neat presentation inscription dated 1922 on first front blank; in a lightly restored example of the "absurdly fragile" (Pastore) jacket that presents as just about Fine, with a hint of fading to the spine and the flap folds dust-soiled. Pastore, pp. 67-73. Johnson, High Spots, pp. 50-51. Sinclair Lewis's unconventionally written tale of a middling, middle-aged man in a mid-level career in a Midwestern town facing a series of psychological crises that reveal to him the emptiness of his superficially successful and prosperous life. Like Main Street, Lewis's first best-selling novel, Babbitt generated controversy (Lewis found himself the target of articles in such unlikely journals as the National Real Estate Journal, Rotarian, and Nation's Business), became a cultural phenomenon, and contributed a new word to the language. Generally, reviewers saw the book as an advance on Main Street, with fewer dull spots. Because of it, H. L. Mencken became an avid Lewis supporter, writing in Smart Set that the novel was both a great "social document" and "bitingly funny." For many later readers, the book defines the 1920s, as did Scott Fitzgerald's This Side of Paradise and The Great Gatsby and Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises. And, not incidentally, it was more than partially responsible for Lewis winning the Nobel Prize. (adapted from The Literary Encyclopedia).

        Zur Theorie der Lichtfortpflanzung in dispergierenden Medien.

      Sitzungsberichten der Preussischen Akademie der Wissenschaften, Berlin 1922 - Einstein, Albert (1879-1955). Zur Theorie der Lichtfortpflanzung in dispergierenden Medien. Complete. Quarto. Offprint from Sitzungsberichten der Preussischen Akademie der Wissenschaften. Berlin: 1922. First edition in very fine condition. This superb offprint is a separate printing of the Prussian Academy's session reports, here with independent pagination. A small number of such off prints were presented to the author by the publisher as voucher copies. References: Schilpp-Shields 162; Weil 120. This paper gives evidence that Einstein’s ideas on the photon were not able to contradict classical theory. "Since, after 1917, Einstein firmly believed that light-quanta were here to stay, it is not surprising that he would look for new ways in which the existence of photons might lead to observable deviation from the classical picture. In this he did not succeed. At one point, in 1921, he thought he had found a new quantum criterion, but it soon turned out to be a false lead [as demonstrated in this paper]". An excellent example. "The early Offprints from "Sitzungsberichten." are called "Sonderabdruck" up to Weil No.165 (including this). From Weil 166 they are called "Sonderausgabe.". - Before 161 (up to 160) the Offprints do not have separate title and pagination (the pagination follows the numbering in the periodical). From 166 the Offprint has both separate printed title and pagination. - ( So Weil Nos 161-165 is still "Abdruck", but with separate title and pagination)." [Attributes: First Edition]

SPECIAL PRICE of 900 pounds plus postage for UK purchaser prepared to pay by Sterling cheque drawn on UK bank A 12 volume set with 1922 hand coloured lithographed plates in generally very good condition overall. This works out at less than 50 pence per plate. This is the third edition which is described as enlarged, re-arranged according to the natural orders and entirely revised. The descriptions are by John T Boswell, the editor, with the exception of volume twelve which, due to the ill health of the editor, was completed by N E Brown of the Royal Herbarium, Kew. The plates are by J Sowerby, J D C Sowerby, J W Slater and John Edward Sowerby except for vol 12 which has plates by N E Brown, John Edward Sowerby and the great Walter Hood Fitch. The volumes are variously dated from 1876 to 1886 for vol 12. Vol 12 contains a 100 page index for the set. This is an ex library set. Internally the volumes are generally very clean - there is some light foxing/marking to a few pages - this is mostly confined to the first few and last pages in each volume. The vast majority of the plates are in excellent clean condition as shown by the photographs. A few plates have some markings - please look at the photographs for further information. As these are ex-library books there are the typical library markings on the inside front page of each volume and on the verso of each title page. However, as far as we can see, no other stamps throughout the volumes or on the plates. The bindings are all sound and tight. Externally, the green cloth boards of these volumes are in generally very good clean condition - there is little evidence of some corners being lightly bumped. Green leather spines are in generally very good condition - there is a bit of wear in places and a mark where the library stamp was. The gold on the spines are generally bright and easily visible. This set looks good on the bookshelf. The Bianco Library website has 12 pictures of these books including both medium and large images. This description is to be read in conjunction with these photographs. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

[I-LVIII], broché, couverture crème imprimée noir de l’éditeur, bel exemplaire. BNF, 4-G-1085 (sans le vol. III de texte et son atlas). Édition originale (à l’exception du vol. I comme souvent en réédition chez Roth-Hotz à Lausanne) très rare pour cet ensemble paru séparément sur une longue période de treize années. « Les six volumes des Pères Raphaël Savignac (1874-1951) et Antonin Jaussen (1871-1962) furent publiés entre 1909 et 1922. Ils sont le résultat de leurs missions entreprises en 1907, 1909 et 1910. Les deux premiers tomes et son atlas relatent le voyage à Madâ’in Sâlih et à al-‘Ulâ, ils sont consacré surtout au récit de voyage, à l'archéologie et à l'épigraphie. Le supplément au tome II contient des notes ethnologiques recueillies au cours de la deuxième expédition, en 1909. Ces notes concernent les Fuqarâ’, un groupe nomade de l'Arabie du Nord-Ouest (aux environs de Madâ’in Sâlih et al-‘Ulâ). Le troisième tome devait être publié en même temps que les deux précédents, mais le déclenchement de la guerre a rendu l'envoi du manuscrit en France difficile, ce qui explique le retard de publication. Dans ce dernier volume et son atlas les auteurs donnent les premières photographies de Qusayr ‘Amra, Qasr Tûba et Qasr Kharâna, châteaux visités au cours des trois expéditions. Ces sites avaient déjà été visités et étudiés par A. Musil en 1907, mais A. Jaussen et R. Savignac ajoutent de nombreuses informations importantes avec de nouveaux plans, et reprennent l'étude archéologique de Qasr Tûba ( ) En 1907, les PP. R. Savignac et A. Jaussen obtiennent une mission, de la Société Française des Fouilles Archéologiques, pour se rendre dans les régions de Madâ’in Sâlih, Taymâ’ et al-‘Ulâ. Les deux chercheurs disposent d'avantages par rapport à leurs prédécesseurs : l'équipement photographique et la construction du chemin de fer du Hijâz reliant Damas à Médine. Grâce à la photographie qui permet d'avoir les premiers clichés des vestiges de la région, le monde savant prend connaissance des monuments de Taymâ’, de Madâ’in Sâlih et d'al-‘Ulâ, jusqu'alors connus seulement par des croquis. » (Cf. Saba Farès-Drappeau in Revue des mondes musulmans et de la Méditerranée, pp. 89-90, juillet 2000). FIRST EDITION. VERY NICE SET. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

The front paste-down and the rear panel are near fine, but the spine has a 1/4" tear at the top and scattered speckling or flecking. The gilt is lightly faded. The dustjacket is quite torn, heavily edge-rubbed, separated along folds and just barely good with its original: "Price $2.50" at the bottom of the inside front flap. On the rear panel which is torn and missing large pieces is the list of Cosmopolitan Color Books for Young People beginning with A Tale of Two Cities and ending with Boys and Girls of Bookland. All priced "Each $2.50". Internally the book is very clean and tight, and the plates are resplendent with the Wyeth magic. First Edition, thus. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
