      München, Kurt Wolff Verlag A.G., 1923. Vollständige Ausgabe in elegantem, prächtigem Handeinband der Zeit: Ganzfranzband, geheftet auf fünf Bünde, türkises Maroquin-Leder / Ganzleder / Leder im Format 26 x 34 cm mit reichdekoriertem, goldgeprägtem Rückentitel, 5 erhabene Bünde, feine Linien-Dekoration der Deckel in Handvergoldung, Innen- und Stehkantenvergoldung, handgestochenes Kopfband, Lederhäubchen und Ganzgoldschnitt. 211 Seiten mit 323, teils farbigen, Abbildungen auf Kunstdruckpapier (montierteTafeln) sowie großem Anhang mit Grundrissen und Schnitten, Literatur- und Künstlerverzeichnis, Ortsverzeichnis, Verzeichnis der Abbildungen, Druckvermerk: \"Der Text dieses Werkes wurde im Frühjahr 1923 vom Bibliographischen Institut in Leipzig gedruckt. . . Einband und Titel zeichnete Emil Praetorius \" sowie kalligraphischer Widmung auf dem Vorsatz: \"Zum 20-jährigen Bestehen der Katholischen Schulorganisation Deutschlands ihrem weitschauenden Gründer und zielbewussten Führer Altreichskanzler Dr. Wilhelm Marx in dankbarer Verehrung die Katholische Schulorganisation in Bayern, Landesverband der katholischen Elternvereinigungen Bayerns, Schwerd / Zinkl\". - \"Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Bei Dünndruckpapier werden die Lagen zum Heften leicht vorgeritzt. Ein Einsägen oder gar Einraspeln der Bünde findet nicht statt. Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Zum Kapital wird kein schlappes maschinengewebtes Bändchen verwendet, sondern das Kapital wird von Hand mit dem Buchblock umstochen, gibt dadurch dem Rücken einen festen Abschluß und bietet zugleich dem späteren Ledereinschlag (\"Häubchen\") die Unterlage. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können.\" Aus einem alten Prospekt von Richard Hönn, ehemals Handbinderei des Verlages Albert Langen, Werkstatt für feine Buchbinder- und Lederarbeiten in München. - EA, erste Auflage in guter Erhaltung (einige Feuchtigkeitsflecken am Unterrand, Buchrücken durch Lichteinwirkung ausgebleicht, sonst gut). - Lederausgabe, Lederband, Meistereinband, Liebhaber-Einband, Luxuseinband, Handeinband, Kunstbuchbinderei, Prachtausgabe, Kunstband, Frieda Thiersch, illustrierte Bücher Versand D: 5,90 EUR Lederausgabe, Lederband, Meistereinband, Liebhaber-Einband, Luxuseinband, Handeinband, Kunstbuchbinderei, Prachtausgabe, Kunstband, Frieda Thiersch, illustrierte Bücher

        LAUGHING ANNE

      1923. [1 of 200 signed copies] A Play. London: [Morland Press,] 1923. Original full limp vellum, in the original green cloth box with spine label. First Edition, being one of 200 copies numbered and signed by Conrad (this being #177) -- issued as the fourth title in the Morland Press's "The Vine Books" series. This was Conrad's dramatization of his tale "Because of the Dollars," which had been published in WITHIN THE TIDES (1915). The play was never produced on the stage; his other two plays, "The Secret Agent" and "One Day More," were also unsuccessful.~LAUGHING ANNE has a highly unusual binding of full limp vellum, simply printed in gilt on its spine. This is an unusually clean, fine copy, with very little of the warping that typically afflicts full-vellum-without-boards. Included is the original clamshell case of green cloth with spine label, in very good condition (this case is actually quite scarce, because warping vellum does not like to be so confined). At 200 copies only, this is one of the most severely-limited signed Conrad editions. Cagle A59 (the last item included in Cagle).

        THE SECRET AGENT. A Drama in Three Acts

      1923 - London: Privately Printed for Subscribers only by T. Werner Laurie, 1923. Original parchment-backed boards with spine label, with dust jacket. First Published Edition, which is to say the Limited Edition -- being one of 1000 numbered copies signed by Conrad (this being #475). This was Conrad's dramatization of his 1907 novel of the same name, preceded by a 52-copy private issue (". in Four Acts", Canterbury 1922). For this signed edition, it was decided to combine the short third act into the second (as Act II Scene III): thus the reduced number of acts. The play had been a flop; Conrad later observed, "I was amused by their [the critics'] touching unanimity in damning the play. It was like a chorus of parrots.".~This volume is in fine condition, with the duplicate spine label still bound in at the rear; the dust jacket is very good-plus (a few short tears, one small chip at an upper corner of the spine, spine sunned as always).

First edition. In publisher's illustrated wrappers, printed in green and black. 215, (1) p. Thoroczkai-Wigand's rare work on gardens, gardening and garden architecture, its history and design. Ede Toroczkai-Wigand (1869-1945) was a Hungarian architect and designer of decorative art. The thoughts of John Ruskin and the Arts and Crafts Movement had a major influence on him. He had the idea that art, architecture, folk customs and language is a complex structure and this complexity or "holism" reflecting in the unique character of his works. Beside being a prolific architect and designer, who was awarded at many international exhibitions (Paris, 1900; Torino, 1902; St. Louis, 1904), Toroczkai-Wigand published bibliophilic books like this piece, partly on his works and partly about the art, architecture and the folk tales of the Székelys in Transylvania. In these publications he combined the content and the typography into a special unity, in the manner of the unique Transylvanian Art Nouveau style. With a little loss to tail of spine. A small tear to front cover and first few pages. Otherwise a fine copy. In publisher's illustrated wrappers, printed in green and black [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Galimathias

      New York: Broom, [1923] - The first book by this interesting literary figure whose chief works were in biography and economic history, but who is perhaps best revered for his bohemian memoir, LIFE AMONG THE SURREALISTS. His highly experimental poetry, influenced by his time hobnobbing with Dadaists in Paris, was published in a series of modernist magazines, including Broom, which he edited with Alfred Kreymborg. His collection of poems was published in an edition of 250 copies on Japan paper; this is #6. Some nibbling to the edge of the spine near the title, chip to corner of front cover, date (1923) to front endpaper. Otherwise a very good copy of a very rare book. [Attributes: First Edition]

Schauer II, 43; Rodenberg 244. - Ausgabe in Ganzpergament-Einbänden; jeweils Nr. 836 von 1000 handschriftlich nummerierten Exemplaren (GA 1100). "Als fünftes (und sechstes) Buch in der von Marcus Behmer gezeichneten Schrift nach dessen Plan und Angaben bei Otto von Holten zu Berlin gedruckt" (Impressum). Sehr schöner Druck auf an zwei Seiten unbeschnittenem Bütten. Die Illustrationen - 48 Holzschnitte für die Ilias und 54 für die Odyssee - schuf Ludwig von Hofmann (1861-1945). Hofmann war u.a. einer der führende Köpfe der Bewegung "Neues Weimar" um Harry Graf Kessler und Henry van de Velde. Er hatte erst spät in seiner künstlerischen Karriere (1919) mit der Illustration von Bücher begonnen und Marcus Behmer 1921 bei der gemeinsamen Arbeit an "Das Hohelied Salomos" kennen und schätzen gelernt. Für die Gestaltung von Ilias und Odyssee arbeiteten sie auf das engste zusammen. "Marcus, der Schriftgestalter, und Ludwig, der Zeichner, behandelten das Problem der Buchillustration in kongenialer Weise: als Verschmelzung zweier Künste, (.). Mit der Schrift Marcus Behmers zusammen entstand die buchtechnisch-bibliophile Einheit, bei der jede Zeile berechnet wurde, dazu Kopfstücke, Hauptbild und Schlußstücke eines jeden Gesanges in der erwünschten Tonart und Proportion. Da mußte jede Geste sehr lebendig, natürlich und genau überlegt sein." (Eleonore v. Hofmann: Im Kreis der Elite. Persönliche Erinnerungen an Ludwig von Hofmann. In: Speculum Artis Nr. 6 (1963), S. 28). - Einige der etwas weiter vorstehenden Büttenränder angestaubt, sonst schönes Exemplar.

        THE PSYCHOLOGY OF THE NEW EDUCATION

      1923. BROWN, Wolstan Crocker. [With Florence Fleming Noyes]. THE PSYCHOLOGY OF THE NEW EDUCATION. Color Frontispiece. NY: The Noyes-Group Association, 1923. 12mo., black cloth, stamped in gilt; 102 pages. First Edition. Brown writes about a fourth-dimensional approach to education to coincide with the upcoming new age of science and how it applies to the laws of unity- just like the newly-formed League of Nations was uniting towards a single source of government. "The laws of unity and relativity lie within the realm of the fourth dimension." He writes that education has been one-sided because it has no roots in the subconscious side of the mind. [I know, heavy stuff.] Not only that, apparently Brown developed a unique boxing technique called the "cosmic punch" that was first used by Lou Nova in his fight against Max Baer in 1941- he knocked him out. Based on studies of spontaneous movement, Brown discovered a fundamental formula for the mathematical efficiency of the body (resulting in the cosmic punch) and lectured about it at Rockefeller Center's Museum of Science and Industry in 1941. Sports writers dismissed the cosmic punch as "a phony" but it later gained credibility as other boxers began to use it. Signed presentation from Brown on the front endpaper: "To Miss Lucy Ellis Allen, From- Wolstan Crocker Brown, September, 1923." Lucy Ellis Brown was the daughter of education pioneer Nathaniel Allen who, in 1854, founded the progressive West Newton English and Classical School in Newton, Massachusetts, later called the Allen School. Lucy remained active at the school and in progressive education and wrote "West Newton: Half A Century Ago" in 1917. It would be no surprise that she and Brown were acquainted. Rare! I have been unable to locate any copies of this title in the marketplace and there are apparently only 14 copies known in libraries worldwide. Very Good (titles bright; contents clean & tight but for some foxing to the endpapers). $750.00.

        The Works of Herman Melville.

      London: Constable and Company, 1923-24. The Complete Works of Herman Melville. Octavo, 16 volumes bound in three quarters blue morocco, raised bands, gilt titles and tooling to the spine. The Standard edition, limited to 750 numbered sets and includes the first printing of Billy Budd, in volume 13. Volume 16 includes the first appearance of a number of Herman Melville's poems. In very good to near fine condition with a few volumes rebacked. An attractive set. Herman Melville was an American novelist, short story writer, and poet from the American Renaissance period. Most of his writings were published between 1846 and 1857 and is best known for his sea adventure Typee (1846) and his whaling novel Moby-Dick (1851), he was almost forgotten during the last thirty years of his life. His writing draws on his experience at sea as a sailor, exploration of literature and philosophy, and engagement in the contradictions of American society in a period of rapid change. The main characteristic of his style is probably pervasive allusion, reflecting his written sources. Melville's way of adapting what he read for his own new purposes, scholar Stanley T. Williams wrote, "was a transforming power comparable to Shakespeare's."

        The World Crisis, full set of six British first edition, first printings, with a pre-publication inscription to a close associate and friend in the third book

      Thornton Butterworth Limited, London 1923 - This is a full set of six British first edition, first printings of Churchill's monumental history of the First World War, inscribed and dated in the third book by Churchill (two days before publication) to his "oldest friend" Jack Seely. Inked on the ffep of 1916-1918 Part I in four lines is "Jack Seely / from / Winston S. Churchill / 1.3.27". John Edward Bernard Seely (1868-1947), 1st Baron Mottistone CB, CMG, DSO, PC, TD, was Churchill's close friend, comrade in arms, and political ally for nearly half a century. His life and career remarkably parallel and entwine Churchill's, with a particularly strong bond during the First World War, both in politics and on the Front. As boys, Seely and Churchill both attended Harrow. Both earned distinction in the Boer War and parlayed war records into election to Parliament in the "Khaki election" of 1900. Churchill and Seely quickly became political allies and confidantes. Both left the Conservative party, becoming Liberals in 1904. Both joined the Liberal Government Cabinet in 1908. In 1911 Churchill became First Lord of the Admiralty and in 1912 Seely became Secretary of State for War. Both were forced out of the Cabinet - Seely for the Curragh Incident in 1914 and Churchill for the Dardanelles in 1915 - and both subsequently chose to serve on the Front. While on active service in Europe, the two friends arranged to see one another often and continued to correspond throughout the war. In 1916, Churchill wrote to Seely "Good luck to you my dear - count on me if the moment comes when I am worth anything again." Churchill was the first to be politically rehabilitated, returning to the Cabinet as Minister of Munitions in 1917. Seely would write from Flanders "I am so glad, not only for your sake who at last have an outlet for energies and talents, but even more for all of us who want so badly just what you can give." While Seely continued to serve with gallant distinction, Churchill faithfully advocated for a Ministerial appointment for him. In 1918, after retiring from active military service, Seely campaigned for Churchill in Dundee. When Churchill became Secretary of State for Air and War in 1919, he brought in Seely as Under-Secretary for Air. Though Seely chafed at his failure to secure his own ministry and ultimately resigned in frustration, the friendship endured. Churchill wrote to Seely "I did whatever was in my power wh sincere & old friendship suggested to assist yr return from the military to the political arena. Had greater offices been in my sphere of influence, I wd have found one for you." In 1924, both Seely and Churchill rejoined the Conservative Party. In 1927, when this book was inscribed, Churchill was Chancellor of the Exchequer and Seely Chairman of the National Savings Commission (a post he held from 1926-1943). Two years later, Churchill wrote to Stanley Baldwin urging that Seely be given a peerage; Seely was created Baron Mottistone in 1933. The inscribed 1916-1918 Part I book is in near-fine condition. The binding is square, clean, and tight, with only very light shelf wear and minor wrinkling at the spine ends. The contents are bright and crisp. Spotting is mostly confined to the prelims and page edges, of course including the inscribed ffep. Nonetheless, the inscription is excellent, with no age-spreading or smudging of the ink. The remaining five volumes make this a very nice set indeed with superior spine presentation. The bindings are uniformly clean with bright gilt and only light shelf wear, mostly confined to extremities. The contents are uniformly clean and tight. Light spotting is confined to text block edges and the prelims of two volumes. The Eastern Front and The Aftermath both have a single neat previous owner name inked on the ffep. The 1911-1914 volume bears an inked inscription on the ffep dated 4 May 1923. We find no other ownership marks.

A consecutive run of monthly issues from April 1886 - April 1923. *Outing* (along with *Forest and Stream*), was a leading magazine of outdoor sporting literature and activities in the United States. It featured the nature writing of John Burroughs and others, and a range of fiction and nonfiction treating all manner of traditional activities (hunting, fishing, camping, yachting, etc.) as well as new and emerging sports and technologies such as baseball, football, photography, automobiles, and aviation. It also featured many regional photographic surveys, such as Horace Kephart's famous "The Southern Highlander" series, Clifton Johnson's "The Cotton Pickers," and "Mark Twain's Country," and Sumner Matteson's "Red Man and White Man in Colorado's Game Fields" which included some of the earliest photographs of the changing American West. Other notable contributions are Walter Camp's articles on football (including many illustrated with photographs), and Jack London's five-part story: "White Fang" (which provoked a famous dispute with John Burroughs and Theodore Roosevelt on the 'true nature' of nature writing). The magazine is also important for publishing the early work of some of America's best illustrators: Frederic Remington, N.C. Wyeth, Maxfied Parrish, and others.The first 63 volumes from 1886-1917 are small quartos; followed by 5 small folios (containing monthly issues October 1917-September 1922), and seven issues from October 1922-April 1923 loose in wrappers. An ex-library set with most volumes bound in full buckram or quarter linen and dark blue cloth (five early quarto volumes are in contemporary half calf and marbled paper boards); with bookplates, ink stamps, pockets, and some volumes also with scattered perforated stamps on the title pages and plates. The five volumes in half calf are worn, with the boards detached; many early volumes with some scattered loose or detached pages, and a few with missing or torn pages. Overall a fair or better set. Still a nice assemblage of American nature writing and sporting literature in a scarce long run. A list of notable first-appearance contributions is available.

        Alpenlandschaft mit Hütte.

      O. O., 1923. - Aquarellierte blaue Schreibtusche auf Konstruktionszeichenkarton. 360:235 mm. Unten rechts signiert und datiert "R. Höss. 1923." Mit feiner Schreibfeder ausgeführte, nicht ungeschickte Tintenzeichnung einer von kahlen Bäumen umstandenen einsamen Holzhütte am tief verschneiten Hang, im Hintergrund Berge. Einzig die Hütte und der Zaun sind in hellbrauner Farbe ankoloriert, die übrige Schneelandschaft ist anscheinend mit der unterschiedlich verdünnten blauen Schreibtinte laviert; der Himmel mit stark verdünntem Braun minimal angetönt. Auf der Rückseite beschnittene Reste einer kolorierten geologischen Querschnittszeichnung aus der Baustoffindustrie. - Wohl einziges bekanntes Dokument einer künstlerischen Neigung des Kommandanten von Auschwitz, zu dessen Charakterzügen zwar eine kleinbürgerliche Naturverbundenheit (vgl. Martin Broszat, Kommandant in Auschwitz, S. 19) gezählt wird, wie sie aus dem vorliegenden Blatt leicht herausgelesen werden kann, dessen bekannte Gefühlsarmut und nicht zuletzt seine Betätigung im Freikorps und Beteiligung am Fememord an Walter Kadow 1923 aber kaum den Künstlerdilettanten vermuten lassen dürften. Wegen letzteren Verbrechens wurde Höß noch 1923 verhaftet und 1924 zu zehn Jahren Zuchthaus verurteilt (1928 amnestiert). Möglicherweise ist die Zeichnung während der Mußestunden der Untersuchungshaft entstanden. - Einige kleine Druckstellen; insgesamt wohlerhalten. Erworben von den Nachfahren der Familie des Infanteriegenerals und Eichenlaubträgers Karl Eibl (1891-1943). [Attributes: Signed Copy]
