        The song of songs called by many the canticle of canticles

      Waltham St. Lawrence: Golden Cockerel Press, 1925. Edition limited to 750 copies (this, no. 507), slim 4to, pp. [4], 9-42, [6]; 17 wood engravings by Eric Gill, initials and title-page vignette printeed in red; a fine copy in original cream cloth, gilt-lettered spine, and contained in a red cloth clamshell box with black morocco label on spine. "In the colour of its engravings, their harmony with the Caslon type, and in its general design, the book was very well done. But some in the Catholic church condemned it as an immoral book, and a disgrace to Gill's name. It had been a dangerous choice for a Catholic artist. Even Gill's friends found fault with it" (Cave and Manson, History of the Golden Cockerel Press, p. 49). Chanticleer 31.

        My Life: Volume II & My Life and Loves; Frank Harris by Tobin & Gertz (3 DISTINCT VOLUMES) Grove Press Edition: Edited and with an Introduction by John F. Gallagher

      Nice / New York: Privately Printed / Imprimerie Nicoise & Grove Press, Inc. , 1925 / 1963. First Edition & First Collected Edition, First Printing. Wrappers / Cloth. Fine / Fine/Fine / Fine. THREE volumes: 1) Presentation Copy SIGNED by the Author from Nice, France, to Robert Cushman with a quote: "Death closes all; yet something ere the end / Some work of noble worth may yet be done."; Vol. II ONLY, small 8vo, tan wrappers, xvii + 433 pages + [6] Index, with Errata slip; PLUS 2) a copy of the Complete edition (Five Volumes in One) of My Life & Loves by Frank Harris, tall and thick 8vo, green cloth with Kulhman' sketch of Harris, Mylar-protected dust jacket with caricaturish orange-tinted sketch of Frank Harris designed by Roy Kuhlman, xviii + 983 pages; PLUS 3) the Limited First Edition, 8vo, Frank Harris, by A. I. Tobin and E. Gertz, Fine in dj, (1931), xii + 393 pages. We here offer THREE Fine examples of one of the great autobiographies with remarkable erotic content and penetrating insights. One copy offers a Great Rarity: A highly personalized Presentation by Harris of his Second Volume. We couple that rarity with a handsome copy of Harris's complete autobiography as published in a Fine edition by Grove.The wrappered Presentation Copy Signed and with a Quotation is square and its binding is holding remarkably well, especially given the paper's relative fragility. There is a barely visible band of purplish color (perhaps caused by offset from another volume) that can be detected on the cover, though it scarcely detracts from the Rarity of having ANY Part of said autobiography in the original wrappers. They simply disappeared or were mangled. Given the age and quality of the wrappered First Edition, there is slight uniform age-toning to the pages, which is to be expected. Internally, the wrappered First Edition (Vol. II) is clear, unmarked, and relatively bright.Overall in Exceptional condition!The thick and tall octavo by Grove Press contains all five of Harris's autobiographical volumes in one. It is clean, tight, bright with a few tiny nicks to the otherwise excellent dust jacket. We also include the revealing biography by A. I. Tobin and E.Gertz, entitled--what else?--Frank Harris, an edition limited to 1,000 copies. Ours is a Fine Copy in an equally Fine dj. It reveals more of the somewhat obscured sexual life of the famous autobiographer and includes unpublished correspondence from Oscar Wilde, Lord Alfred Douglas, and other notables.

        Poor Cecco

      New York: George H. Doran Company, 1925. - The Rarest of the Limited Edition Rackham BooksLimited to 105 Copies Signed by the Author[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. BIANCO, Margery Williams. Poor Cecco. By Margery Williams Bianco. Author of "The Velveteen Rabbit." Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. New York: George H. Doran Company, [1925].First edition, deluxe large paper issue. One of 105 numbered copies signed by Margery Williams Bianco. Quarto. 175 pp. Seven full-page illustrations in color, mounted on white paper, and twenty-four drawings in black and white. Original parchment-backed light blue paper boards, navy blue lettering label on spine. Pictorial endpapers in pale blue on white. Top edge gilt, others uncut. Upper hinge invisibly restored, very slight (closed) split to top one inch of parchment spine on lower joint not affecting joint integrity, short marginal tear to last blank. Otherwise, a fine copy. The text, with the same illustrations by Rackham, also appeared in Good Housekeeping beginning in May 1925. No limited English edition was issued, and this title/edition is the rarest of Rackham illustrated books, and extremely scarce."The Velveteen Rabbit or How Toys Become Real was Margery Williams Bianco's first American work, and it remains her most famous. It became an instant classic and has remained so through numerous adaptations in children's theater as well as on radio, television and in the movies. After becoming a renowned author, Bianco wrote numerous other children's books, with her son becoming the namesake of one of them, 1925's Poor Cecco: The Wonderful Story of a Wonderful Wooden Dog Who Was the Jolliest Toy in the House Until He Went Out to Explore the World—a distinguished book that belies its somewhat priggish subtitle and is arguably better entitled than The Velveteen Rabbit to status as a classic. This lively adventure story, virtually a novel for children, is a brilliant exception to the sentimentality of Bianco's more famous book. Each of the many characters who populate the nursery toy cupboard is a distinct and amusing personality. Their interactions with each other and with the human, animal, and toy members of the world beyond it, whom they encounter on their quest for adventure/search for a lost friend, are delineated with understated humor. The relationship between the wooden dog Cecco, a natural leader, and Jensina, a highly independent and spirited wooden doll, is both subtle and funny. Superb illustrations by Arthur Rackham are a perfect complement to the narrative. While the publisher probably found it more practical to promote the shorter Velveteen Rabbit, Cecco's celebrated illustrator may have assured its survival in the catalogues of rare book dealers despite its undeserved literary obscurity. A return to more sober themes marks Bianco's other popular works, such as the same year's The Little Wooden Doll, illustrated by her daughter Pamela, in which the title character is badly mistreated by some children, but shown love and compassion by another child, which made her whole again."

        Trevor Lloyd's sketchbooks of New Zealand.

      New Zealand, ca. 1925. In two volumes. Folio (35 x 25 cm, and 36 x 33 cm). The first of white paper, with his name handwritten on the second leaf, and (68 groups of) illustrations, mostly on leaf rectos only, a few using both sides of a leaf. The second, largest, of brown paper, with his name written on the front cover. Inserted: one sheet of trace paper with pencil drawing, and 24 leaves with colour pencil sketches of New Zealand landscapes, and people.= Trevor Lloyd (1863-1937) was a New Zealand artist, illustrator and cartoonist. "...Lloyd was born in Silverdale, Auckland ... [his] work is evocative of the New Zealand bush and his work often contained Maori motifs. Lloyd exhibited with the Auckland Society of Arts in 1883, 1896, 1898, 1899 and 1907 and in 1927 at the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts. Some examples of his work are available online. Lloyd was employed as an illustrator for New Zealand Illustrated Magazine from November 1901 until its last edition in 1905 (in which he was acknowledged). He also worked as an illustrator for Auckland Weekly News and as a cartoonist for The New Zealand Herald, retiring in 1936 after 34 years" (Wikipedia). The first sketchbook mainly shows a) scenes and people, observed and drawn by Lloyd during a boat trip, perhaps on a ferry; and b) spectacular solitary trees and ferns, in rectangular frames. The latter seems to be one of his favourite subjects: several New Zealand museums and art galleries possess tree etchings in his hand, and at least one of the drawings in this manuscript can be identified as the basis of one of his etchings. The former are not without humour: a harbour scene has, in the margin, the sketch of a surprised looking young girl, captioned "He's drawing in ink". Trevor Lloyd was, after all, also one the country's leading cartoonists. Of his India ink sketches those of landscapes are quite detailed; those of people more sketched -some in pencil. Among the pencilled illustrations is one of a cat sleeping in a man's arm, captioned "the prisoner", which left us to wonder who the prisoner was: the cat, or the man? The second sketchbook contains fine, balanced, crayon illustrations of New Zealand landscapes, and people, many captioned with the name of the location (e.g. Whale Island, in the Bay of Plenty, or Umu-Pura Pura, or a short description of the situation (e.g. "One of our backbones", "A warm day"). On some drawings a white tent is visible, suggesting that Lloyd went on a trip through part of New Zealand's Northern Island. Both sketch books show signs of travel and working in the open air. Thus edges frayed, a few smudges and small holes in some leaves, but generally in good condition. In all, a rich cross-section of Lloyd as an observer and artist. See also: John F. Perry. 'Lloyd, Trevor', from the Dictionary of New Zealand Biography.

        PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM OF 116 PROFESSIONAL IMAGES, MOSTLY FROM MIE-KEN, CIRCA 1895-1925, DURING THE MEIJI AND TAISHO PERIODS

      1925. Original photograph album. Very Good. Oblong, string-tied album of black cardstock leaves, 11" x 13", photographs mounted on 35pp, blanks at the rear. Bound in black, flexible boards with an embossed sailing ship and gilt lettering (Photo-Album) on the cover. Pasted in are 116 albumen and silver gelatin prints, ranging from small candids to 8 ½" x 10 ½" group portraits, a few fading, overall sharp and clean. Laid into the album are a Japanese news article, a small head-shot of an older gentleman, and a watercolor portrait (10" x 8 ¼") of a man's face. Most of the photographs in this album. circa 1895-1925, were taken in Mie-Ken (or "Mie prefecture"), part of the Kansai region on the main island of Honshu. The group and individual portraits reflect new social and economic developments and cultural norms that emerged during this period. Subjects are shown in either traditional Japanese garments or in Western dress. Group shots often depict people wearing both styles within the same picture. There are many group shots of schoolchildren of both sexes, young people in uniforms posed before buildings with Japanese signs on them, as well as many formal group shots of families, some "nuclear"-husband, wife, children- others extended by relatives. Individual shots of young children show them almost invariably in western dress, one posed with his tricycle, young boys in uniform, a young girl in kimono showing a dance move while holding a fan, infants in traditional robes, and young men in business suits. Several birdseye views feature very large groups of rural people in traditional dress, posed outdoors. Among the most striking photographs are: one (8 ½" x 10 ½") showing 11 doctors/ medical students posed around two corpses (one smiling happily) being dissected on two tables; four women and one man posed around a table doing handwork (weaving, tatting?); men in western dress, "strap-holding" inside a streetcar; and 5 actors (2 male, 3 female) on stage in costume. ~~ The Meiji period (1868-1912) saw the restoration of the Emperor (this time with a centralized bureaucracy behind him) after years of shogun rule. Japan was under heavy influence from Western political, economic, and educational models, and the country became more capitalist, industrial, and progressively democratic, offering free education to youngsters of both genders. Transportation and communications systems were modernized, the feudal lords and samurai lost their power, and a powerful national army and navy were created. By the early 1870s, the government declared all classes of people to be equal. The Taishu period (1912-26) saw the continued influence of Western culture, and values such as efficiency and individualism continued to replace more traditional ones. Japanese participation on the world stage continued to grow as the nation co-founded the League of Nations and emerged on the winning side in WWI. By 1925, there was universal male suffrage in Japan. Corruption in government increased, however, and the West began to form negative views of this newly-powerful, non-white nation, exacerbated by Japan's poor treatment of China.

        JARDINS ENCHANTÉS Un Romancero.

      Paris: Louis Conard 1925. First edition; penned presentation inscription from the author to "Madame de Berèze" dated 1930 on half-title. Ferdinand Bac, a German native who migrated to Paris in the nineteenth century, was a successful painter, author and book illustrator who later settled at Menton on the French Riviera. He designed several gardens for the unique semi-tropical mountains of that region, most notably Les Colombières. His imaginative and romantic Mediterranean gardens, both real and imaginary, influenced artists such as the architect and garden designer, Louis Barragan. Barragan was inspired, in particular, by the "enchanted" Hispano-Moorish gardens described in JARDINS ENCHANTÉS, a few of which had actually been built, while most were pure fantasy. These are depicted in a series of evocative paintings reproduced here in color. The text is a story, or "romancero," written to accompany the illustrations. 4to (27.5 x 22 cm); viii + 72 pp. text with printed decorative borders + 36 color plates. Recently bound in marbled paper over boards with gilt titled and dated leather spine; original paper wraps bound in, some soiling to original wraps, heavier on rear cover; some scattered foxing internally, heavier on preliminaries. .

        Sigmund Freud signed and dedicated book with a scarce association, to fellow psychoanalyst Oskar Pfister

      n.p., December 2, 1925. 6.25" x 9". "Sigmund Freud signed first offprint edition of his autobiography, ""Die Medizin Der Gegenwart in Selbstdarstellungen"" (The medicine of the present - in self representations) inscribed to fellow psychoanalyst Oskar Pfister. Published by Felix Meiner, 1925, Germany. First offprint edition in green wraps, 6.25"" x 9"". Marked ''Nicht im Handel'' (''not for sale'') and ''Sonderdruck'' (''offprint''). Signed, inscribed, and dated on the front wraps by Sigmund Freud to Pfister, ""Seimen lieben/O. Pfister/Freud/12.2.25"" (translated as To his dear friend) A second inscription from Oskar Pfister to Professor R. Brandt located on the fly leaf ""Seimen lieben Freunde/Prof. R. Brandt/In herzlicher Gesinnung"" (translated as To his dear friend … with warm sentiments). The book is protected in a custom clamshell case, with the front wrap design repeating on the front of the clamshell, and leather quarter cloth with raised bands on the spine, with a touch of slight rubbing to the front. The book is neatly nestled in the tray case and well protected.A rare signed and dedicated book by Sigmund Freud with fantastic associations. Sigmund Freud signed the book to Oskar Pfister, who in turn gifted the book 30 years later with a warm inscription to Professor R. Brant. Pfister and Freud both studied psychoanalysis, although Freud did so in a professional capacity, Pfister was more of a ""lay"" psychoanalyst. As an early associate of Freud, Pfister studied theology, philosophy and psychoanalysis with extensive interest in Freud's concepts of the Oedipus Complex, castration anxiety and Transference ( Transference is a phenomenon characterized by unconscious redirection of feelings from one person to another. One definition of transference is ""the inappropriate repetition in the present of a relationship that was important in a person's childhood) . Pfister and Freud shared numerous letters on these subjects which spanned over 30 years until Freud's death in 1939. In turn, Professor Brandt was a dear friend of Pfister's, who also actively researched, analyzed and questioned Freud's theories during the mid 1950's while writing his thesis as a Doctor of Clinical Psychology at the University of Ottawa, Canada. Brandt was highly analytical having both studied and extensively critiqued Freud for many years noting that ""Perhaps in no other field except religion has there been so much disagreement among such competent thinkers as there is in psychoanalysis"". And therein lies the common thread and perpetual philosophical debate between the three individuals which spanned over many decades.A fine condition book, with an extremely scarce signature by Sigmund Freud, with several wonderful and unique associations."
