A unique item. <p>A child prodigy, Amy Marcy Cheney Beach (1867-1944) was an American composer and pianist and the first successful American female composer of large-scale classical music. Born in New Hampshire, she was able to sing over 40 tunes by the age of one and could improvise countermelody by 2 years of age. Teaching herself to read, she was composing waltzes by the age of 4 and was performing public piano recitals, playing Handel, Beethoven, Chopin and her own compositions, by the age of seven. Moving to Boston in 1875, she studied piano with Ernst Perabo and Carl Baermann and later studied composition for a year with Junius W. Hill. Otherwise self-taught, she learned by studying great classical pieces. She made her professional piano debut in Boston in 1883 and soon after appeared as a soloist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. After her marriage to Dr. Henry Harris Aubrey Beach in 1885, she agreed to limit her performances to one a year and devoted herself to composition. Her first real success came 1892 with the performance of her "Mass in E-flat major" by the Handel and Haydn Society which established her an one of America's foremost composers. She composed "Jubilate" for the dedication of the Woman's Building at the Columbian Exposition. After her husband's death, she toured Europe as a pianist to establish her reputation as a pianist and composer. Returning to American she spent time at the MacDowell Colony in Perterborough, NH and later became the composer-in-residence at New York City's St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church. She died of a heart attack in 1944 and was inducted into the American Classical Music Hall of Fame in 1999.

        In Excelsis.

      London: Martin Secker,, 1924. Octavo. Original yellow buckram, titles to spine and front gilt, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. With the dust jacket. Minor partial toning and spotting to endpapers, an excellent copy in the jacket which is somewhat stained on the spine panel and lightly rubbed at the extremities, but on the whole very smart. First edition, first impression, signed limited issue, number 8 of 100 copies signed by the author. With the very scarce dust jacket. In Excelsis is Lord Alfred Douglas's sonnet sequence written while imprisoned in Wormwood Scrubs Prison for libelling Winston Churchill. Douglas had accused Churchill of being party to a Jewish conspiracy to rig the stock market by falsely reporting defeat in the Battle of Jutland - the same old story as is told of the Rothschilds after the Battle of Waterloo. In spite of this somewhat unpropitious reason for his being there, Douglas claimed to have profited from his six months incarceration, not least in discovering "the theology ... of the Catholic Mystics", which he explores in the poems. The affirmative title is of course a deliberate inversion of his erstwhile lover Oscar Wilde's production from jail, De Profundis.

        Le livre des idoles. (Kitab el Asnam.) Texte arabe. 2me edition. Cairo, Imprimerie Bibliothèque Egyptienne, 1924.

      1924. Large 4to. (4), IV, 40, 111, (1) pp. With 2 facsimile plates. Original staple-bound printed wrappers (professionally restored). In slipcase. Second edition. "Texte arabe publié pour la première fois d'après le manuscrit unique de la biblithèque Zèki Pacha accompagné d'une préface en Francais et enrichi de notes critiques par Ahmed Zeki Pacha." - The "Book of Idols" (Arabic: Kitab al-Asnam), written by the Arab scholar Hisham Ibn Al-Kalbi (737-819), describes godheads and rites of ancient Arab religion. The text is critical of pre-Islamic religion and decries the state of religious corruption which the Arabs had supposedly descended to since the founding of the Kaaba. The book was instrumental in identifying "shirk" (the sin of polytheism) with the idolatry of the pre-Islamic Arabs. Ahmad Zaki Pasha, the Egyptian philologist, discovered the text; he bought the sole extant manuscript at auction in Damascus. The manuscript, one of many in his extensive collection, was donated to the state after his death in 1934. - Edge defects to French title page, otherwise insignificant edge wear; a good, untrimmed copy. From the library of the Swedish theologian (Karl Vilhelm) Helmer Ringgren (1917-2012), Professor of Old Testament exegesis at Turku and Uppsala, with his pencilled margin notes and ownership to title page. Ringgren's works include "Islam, Aslama and Muslim" (1949) and "Studies in Arabian Fatalism" (1955). GAL S I, p. 212. OCLC 7012435.
