        Sangschaw (Signed By The Author With A Signed Photo And A H/W Signed Letter To George Malcom Thompson : Association Copy – Thomson’s Personal Copy)

      The First UK Printing published by William Blackwood And Sons in 1925. Correct First issue with dark blue cloth and gilt titling. The BOOK is in Very Good+ condition. Some pushing at the spine ends with a nick and some separation of the cloth at the upper spine end. A few light rubbed areas. Gilt titling remains very bright. Some toning to the text-block and page edges. The WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good++ or better condition. Toning to the edges, folds and the spine. Light creasing and mild edge-wear at the upper spine. The wrapper is protected in a removable Brodart archival cover. The book has been Signed By the Author to the front blank endpaper; C.M.Grieve ('Hugh M'Diarmid'). Accompanied by a H/W and signed letter from the author to George Malcolm Thomson dated 2/1/54. Thomson has also signed his name to the front blank endpaper indicating that this book was his personal copy. George Malcolm Thomson was 'a crusading journalist, literary publisher, novelist and playwright and was the epitome of a thrusting new class of Scottish intellectuals who emerged out of the ruins of the Great War. In the 1930s, he earned the sobriquet of being Scotland's "best-hated man" while still only 28. M'Diarmid and Thomson were to clash over the formation of the Scottish National Party (SNP) in 1934 from a merger of MacDiarmid's separatist National Party of Scotland (NPS) and the right-wing Scottish Party (SP), in which Thomson played a central (if shadowy) role.' (Kerevan). Hugh MacDiarmid (C.M. Grieve) was Scotland's most influential and controversial writer in the 20th century. He urged and enabled the regeneration of all aspects of Scotland's literature and culture through his poetry, polemical writing and political activity. 'A Drunk Man Looks at the Thistle' (1926) is generally regarded as Scotland's masterpiece of Modernism. 'He started writing in Scots, using words and phrases he knew from boyhood and acquired from reading in dictionaries and works of Scottish literature from earlier eras. The poems of Sangschaw (1925), Penny Wheep (1926) and A Drunk Man Looks At The Thistle (1926) were shocking, adult, wry, rebarbative, difficult, piercingly sweet, unsentimental and brutal. They established a new dispensation for Scottish literature, and modernist lusts: for the body and the sexually explicit cognate with Joyce and Lawrence; for the local and demotic, cognate with William Carlos Williams; for the difficult, cognate with Eliot; for the vatic and austere, cognate with Yeats and Pound; for the intellectually demanding, cognate with Stevens and Valéry; but uniquely in the Scottish context, reclaiming a literary history that had fallen into neglect and obfuscation. Forget about Burns, he advised, go back to Dunbar and Henryson, recover and reclaim a national tradition that goes back through millennia.' (Scottish Poetry Library). A loose 16 x 12cm B/W portrait study photograph of Hugh M'Diarmid also accompanies the above. This striking photograph is by Andrew Paterson and is in Very Good+ condition. Andrew Paterson was an Inverness-born photographer who became an internationally renowned, multi-award winning portrait photographer whose services were sought over several decades by many leading political and commercial figures of the day. The photograph has the name C M Grieve, 'Hugh M'Diarmid' in pencil and in green ink ' ? name, Portrait study by Andrew Paterson, Inverness' to the verso. The green ink inscription has been verified as the hand of Andrew Paterson and it is likely that the pencilled name is the hand of Hugh M'Diarmid. Accompanied by a loose ticket to mark the 70th birthday of Hugh M'Diarmid from the Edinburgh City Committee Communist party. A wonderful signed association copy of the author's first poetry collection accompanied by scarce ephemera. Scarce with such attributes. More images available on request.

        Douze robes pour décembre 1925 (Croquis, La Gazette du Bon ton, 1925 n°9)

      Set of eight original prints in color, drawn on laid paper. The boards are introduced by a text signed LRF Sketches L, LII, LIII, LV, are signed David, respectively on the lower right and left boards.Original prints made ​​for the illustration of The Gazette fashionable, one of the finest and most influential twentieth century fashion magazines, celebrating the talent of creators and artists French burgeoning art deco.Famous fashion magazine founded in 1912 by Lucien Vogel, The Gazette fashionable appeared until 1925 with an interruption during the War of 1915 to 1920, due to mobilization of its editor. She is 69 Deliveries from just 2000 copies and is illustrated including 573 color plates and 148 sketches depicting models of fashion designers. Upon publication, these luxury publications "are for bibliophiles and worldly aesthetes" (Françoise Tétart-Vittu "good Gazette of tone" in the fashion dictionary, 2016). Printed on fine laid paper, they use a typeface created specifically for the magazine by Georges Peignot, the Cochin character, taken in 1946 by Christian Dior. The prints are made with the technique of metal stencil, enhanced color and some outlined in gold or palladium.The adventure began in 1912 when Lucien Vogel, man of the world and fashion - it has already participated in Femina magazine - decided to found with his wife Cosette de Brunhoff (John's sister, the father of Babar) Gazette good tone in which the subtitle is then "Art, fashions and frivolities." Georges Charensol quotes the editor: "In 1910, he observed, there was no truly artistic fashion magazine and representative of the spirit of his time. So I thought of making a glossy magazine with truly modern artists [...] I was certain of success because for any fashion country can compete with France. "(" A great art editor. Lucien Vogel "in literary News, No. 133, May 1925). The success of the magazine is immediate, not only in France but also the US and South America.Originally, Vogel therefore brings together a group of seven artists: André-Édouard Marty and Pierre Brissaud, followed by Georges Lepape and Dammicourt; and finally his friends from the School of Fine Arts as are George Barbier, Bernard Boutet de Monvel or Charles Martin. Other talents come quickly reach the equipped Guy Arnoux, Léon Bakst, Benito, Boutet de Monvel, Umberto Brunelleschi, Chas Laborde, Jean-Gabriel Domergue, Raoul Dufy, Edward Halouze Alexander Iacovleff, Jean Emile Laboureur Charles Loupot, Charles Martin, Maggie Salcedo. These artists, mostly unknown when Lucien Vogel appealed to them, will eventually become iconic figures and artistic sought. These are the same illustrators who make the drawings advertisements Gazette.The boards highlight the dresses and sublime seven artists of the time: Lanvin, Doeuillet, Paquin, Poiret, Worth, Vionnet and Doucet. The designers provide for each number of exclusive models. Nevertheless, some of Illustrations contained no real model, but only the idea that the illustrator is done in the fashion of the day.Gazette fashionable is a milestone in the history of fashion. Combining the aesthetic requirement and plastic unit, it brings together for the first time the great talents of the world of arts, literature and fashion and imposed by this alchemy, a new image of women, slender, independent and bold, also driven by the new generation of designers Coco Chanel, Jean Patou, Rochas Marcel ...Recovery in 1920 by Condé Montrose Nast, Gazette fashionable modeled for the new composition and the aesthetic choices of the "little dying newspaper" that Nast had bought a few years ago: the Vogue magazine.

        Fünf Episoden. Mit |zehn Originallithographien| von |Josèphe Verheyen|.

      Wien, Eros-Presse, 1925. - Gr.- Folio 47x31 cm. 20 S., 1 Bl. und 10 Tafeln mit Lithographien in Rotdruck. Orig.-Pappband mit Buntpapier bezogen, mit Front- und RTitel und Titelvignette. Die zarten, eindeutig erotischen Lithographien von Verheyen sind von besonderer Delikatesse: die männlichen Körper wirken immer auch sehr feminin und die Grenzen zwischen den Geschlechtern verschwimmen. Der Text folgt der Übersetzung von Heinrich Conrad. Dieses Werk entstand als erster Druck der Eros-Presse. Im Impressum wird eine Gesamtauflage von 1000 genannt; diese Angabe ist handschriftl. auf 300 korrigiert und erscheint realistisch. Denn ein weiteres Werk der Eros-Presse (Petronius Arbiter, Satyrikon), in gleicher aufwendiger Gestaltung und vom selben Künstler anonym illustriert, erschien auch nur in einer Auflage von 360 Exemplaren. Zudem spricht die Seltenheit des Werks für eine kleine Auflage. Vorliegend ist ein handschriftl. numeriertes Exemplar der Ausgabe C mit Druck auf handgeschöpftem Bütten, in handgefertigtem Wachspapier auf Pergamentstreifen geheftet. Der empfindliche Einband etwas berieben und Kanten beschabt. Vereinzelt kleinste Braunflecken und leicht fingerfleckig. Schönes Exemplar. Hayn-Got. IX, 102. Childs 211 ("With ten licentious cubistic illus. in color. The five episodes are: Bettina, Nannette and Marton, Juliette, Lucretia and Angelica, and the Greek slave girl"). --------------------------[Verheyen]. Casanova. Fünf Episoden.

In-folio 47x31 cm. 20 pp., 1 f. et 10 planches avec lithographies imprimées en rouge. Carton d'éditeur, recouvert avec papier mabré, titre sur premier plat et dos, vignette de titre. Les lithographies délicates et libres sont d'un goût particulier : les corps des hommes donnent l'impression d'être feminin et la dsitance entre les sexes est voilée. Le texte suit une traduction de Heinrich Conrad. Cet oeuvre était la première impression d'Eros-Presse. Le colophon indique un tirage de 1000 exemplaires ; notre exemplaire porte une correction manuscrite à 300 exemplaires qui semble crédible. Car une autre impression d'Eros-Presse (c'est Petronius Arbiter, Satyrikon), qui fut imprimée dans le même style et illustrée par le même artiste anonyme, parue qu'à 360 exemplaires. La rareté d'oeuvre plaide également en faveur d'un tirage moins grand. Notre exemplaire fait parti de l'impression C, imprimé sur papier à la cuve, numéroté à la main.

      PARRISH, MAXFIELD. (PARRISH,MAXFIELD)illus. KNAVE OF HEARTS by Louise Saunders. NY: Scribner 1925 (1925) folio, black cloth, pictorial paste-on, some rubbing to cover plate and cloth, VG+ in fine custom facsimile box. First edition of Parrish's masterwork. Illustrated with glorious pictorial endpapers plus really magnificent full page color illustrations (printed on rectos only) and numerous rich color illustrations in-text, all printed on thick, heavy coated paper. LAID IN IS A HANDWRITTEN LETTER FROM PARRISH TO HIS EDITOR, J.H. CHAPIN DISCUSSING HIS PROGRESS ON THE KNAVE. Written on both sides of a 3 1/2 x 5" card, dated January 26, 1922, Parrish writes to Chapin about his progress with the Knave, specifically his work on the double-page pictorial endpapers. "I have your note of the 23rd. The cover and one of the illustrations, very similar to the cover, are finished, and I am at work upon the cover lining. This one, as you know is to be a very grand affair and will take as much time almost as a big mural decoration, but its going to be very fine & elegant. By May I ought to have in your hands enough to make a respectable dummy. I disike in any way to exaggerate, but we seem to be undergoing a cold snap. 32 degrees below zero at this moment: 28 yesterday and 36 the day before. Our road has vanished in hard snow drifts and its a life of snowshoes now, as far as mail and provisions are concerned. Photographs come from my youngsters in Florida, out rowing in their shirt sleeves and lying around on the sand in bathing suits. Methinks we live in a big country. Sincerely: Maxfield Parrish". Its always a bonus when the content of a letter adds meaning to the development of a book.

        Sonderdruck Sigmund Freud [offprint from L. R. Grotes' "Die Medizin Der Gegenwart in Selbstdarstellungen")

      Leipzig: Felix Meiner, 1925 First edition off-print of Sigmund Freud's autobiography, inscribed on the top cover, "Seimen lieben / O. Pfister / Freud / 12.2.25." The book is further inscribed by Pfister on the blank recto of the frontispiece, " Seimen lieben Freunde / Prof. R. Brandt / In herzlicher Gesinnung / Zurich 24.4.55." Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) was an Austrian neurologist and the founder of psychoanalysis. Oskar Pfister (1873-1956) was a Swiss Lutheran minister and lay psychoanalyst born in Zurich, Switzerland. He is perhaps best known for applying psychoanalysis to the science of education, as well as a belief system combining psychoanalytic psychology and theology. In Zurich, he was in close intellectual proximity to Eugen Bleuler and Carl Jung. The friendship between Freud and Pfister is well documented, lasting over 30 years and only ending upon Freud's death. Less is known about Professor Brandt, though he is believed to have completed his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at the University of Ottawa, Canada and to have written several articles pertaining to Sigmund Freud as well as the psychoanalytic concept of transference. (We are interested to learn more of Dr. Brandt should anyone have additional information). This offprint is bound in teal paper wrap covers. There are a few penciled marks in the margins, as well as some notations believed to be in German in the blank spaces of the last page. There are some handling creases scattered throughout. Overall, this offprint remains tight, and it is otherwise clean and intact. The offprint is housed in a custom felt-lined clamshell case with leather spine and spine labels, raised spine bands, and gilt lettering. The offprint cover is nicely copied onto a green cloth affixed to the top of the case. This cloth piece shows light rubbing, not affecting any letter. Case is otherwise Fine. . Association copy, inscribed by the Author. First Edition. Soft Cover. Very Good/No Dust Jacket.

Georges Charensol cita l'editor: "Nel 1910, ha osservato, non vi era alcuna rivista di moda veramente artistica e rappresentante dello spirito del suo tempo. Così ho pensato di fare una rivista patinata con gli artisti dei più moderni [...] ero certo del successo, perché per tutto il paese della moda in grado di competere con la Francia. "(" Un grande editore d'arte. Lucien Vogel "in letteraria News, N. 133, maggio 1925). Il successo della rivista è immediato, non solo in Francia, ma anche gli Stati Uniti e Sud America.

Spines are a bit dry, worn and a little stained, the corners are worn. There are a few scattered small specks in the second volume, and most leaves in the fifth volume have a slight nick in outer margin. A well-preserved set, which comes with an extra set of 65 plates of art and traditional patterns. The copy is purchased from the Kaudern family and has belonged to Kaudern's wife Teres, but there are no traces of her ownership. Kaudern (1881-1942), Swedish ethnographer and naturalist, spent the years 1917-1921 in Celebes/Sulawesi, where he made ethnographical and zoological-geographical observations in the mainly unknown inland parts of the island. He brought home a collection consisting of more than 3000 ethnographical objects and donated parts of it to the Gothenburg Museum of Ethnography, and he succeeded his former teacher Erland Nordenskiöld as director of the same institution in 1934. The first five parts, dealing with structures and settlements, migrations of the Toraja in Central Celebes, musical instruments, games and dances, and megalithic finds, were published by Kaudern himself, while the last volume treating art was posthumously edited and published by his wife together with his former colleague Henry Wassén.

        A Map of New York which is Published by the Washington Square Bookshop. Here is a map to give you pleasure, a town reduced to your mantel's measure, city of gaiety, city of gold, your Bagdad on Hudson, three hundred years old.

      New York.: Washington Square Bookshop.. 1925.. Color pictographic / pictorial map, 30 1/2 x 38 inches, professionally mounted on linen. Folds (as issued) with infill at fold intersections, pinholes, a few tears (minimized by linen backing). Very good condition. A vibrant bird's eye view of New York City humorously designed by Joseph B. Platt, with Battery Park in the lower right corner and Grant's Tomb and the Polo Grounds in the upper left. The map is bordered by decorative text that reads "Here is a map to give you pleasure, a town reduced to your mantel's measure, city of gayety, city of gold, your Bagdad on Hudson, three hundred years old". This scarce map published to celebrate the tricentenary of the purchase of Manhattan by the Dutch ("Little Miss New York Born 1626" reads a banner flying from the small plane to the right of the central compass rose) is quite extraordinarily modernist in character. It employs some of the graphic features of the new style of "wonder map" developed by MacDonald Gill in his London Underground map posters of the early teens and twenties, notably the "speech balloons" with comic quips explicating the city history and contemporary character and also in its decorative border with text of civic pride. However in the almost abstract coloration of its startling color palette, it stands alone. Examples of the quips: "Is this map to be formal or informal?"; a couple looking at the Woolworth Building exclaim "Oh Boy! That's some stack of dimes." The map was printed by the Ritchey Litho Corp. WorldCat lists a single library holding for this map, at Brown University; another copy is located at the Norman B. Leventhal Map Center (Boston Public Library). .
