      1925. Altogether (2+4+2 =) 8 pp. on 4 ff. 4to and 8vo. Photograph dimensions 74 x 100 mm. Friendly correspondence with a Natasha who at that time was apparently close to Ehrenfest's wife Tatjana. Ehrenfest promises to write to both of them, goes on to develop some thoughts on mechanics and physics, and wants them to ask Joffe, Frenkel, Bursian, Krutkov, and Friedmann in case they do not understand what he has written. He encourages Natasha not to become frustrated by her own scientific work , since "everyone who has become involved with science faces the same problems [...] You should see how Bohr and Einstein were tormented [...]" (transl.). - The picture shows Ehrenfest with some of his students.

        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. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Le chameau. En 2 volumes. Paris, J.B. Baillière and sons (colophon: E. Dessaint), 1925-1926.

      1925. 2 vols. (25 x 17 cm). 748 pp. (4), 207, (1) pp. With 98 plates (numbered I-LXXXVII [part 1] and LXXXVIII-XCVIII [part 2]) and some illustrations in text. Later light brown cloth. First and only edition of an extensive work on camels by commander Gaston Cauvet (1860-1950?). The first volume deals with the camel's origins and habitat (covering west and central Europe, including Russia, Greece and Cyprus; Cuba; North and South America; Africa; Australia and Java), its anatomy and physiology, the different breeds (including dromedaries), external features and internal organs, its nature and character, nutrition, diseases and their gaits. On many of those subjects, including the digestive system and the reproductive system of male camels this book was one of the earliest accounts, and it is still a valuable reference work. Other topics covered in this volume are the use of camels for transportation, the uses of their meat, fur, skin, bones and milk, and their economic use and value (covering pilgrimages, weddings, wars and raids). Volume 2 deals with camels in the history of the Middle East (including Egyptians, Persians, Macedonians, Arabs, Berbers, Mongolians and Turks) and with their role in religion, covering Hinduism, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, with a large section on the importance of the camel for the prophet Mohammed and for Muslims. Also covered is the camel in Arabic and French literature, and in art. - A very good copy. Mukasa-Mugerwa, The camel (camelus dromedarius): a bibliographical review, p. 11.

        MASSIVE Map of Gettysburg and Approaches.

      The Military Engineer, 1925 - A Map of Gettysburg and Approaches. From: The Military Engineer, the journal of the Society of Military Engineers, published at the Mills Building, Washington, D.C., 1925-1927. +++This is a massive map of Gettysburg, in 12 colorful sections, published 1925-1927 in issues of the Military Engineer, printed by the War Department Corps of Engineers, with the map measures about 40 square feet--it is a superb wall map for "historians and war games" (according to the journal). The maps are printed in color, include contour lines and all manner of human geography, in very high detail, including individual houses. +++The map is in 12 section on 8 separate sheets, with the bottom two thirds of the 3 section x 4 section grid being two maps on one sheet. Each map section print-line runs 23x17" (excluding margins etc.), the whole measuring about 70"x 68". All together, the map covers a piece of ground 23 x 23 miles, with 3" equal to about 1 miles (scale 1/21120). This is simply a terrific map. +++Condition: I'd say this was overall in Very Good condition, though the maps are clean, very bright, and very crisp--I doubt that they were opened very much at all (judging by the difficulty in opening them now). The major detriments are the occasional tears in the sheet folds. Currently they are folded, as issued, though I'm very tempted to open, flatten, and repair them so that they are ready to hang.

His book has become a classic."---Bill Reese. "Nothing better on the cowboys has ever been written than the chapter entitled 'Cattle Business.' A prime work throughout."--J. Frank Dobie. "Written by a well-educated and influential pioneer of early Montana, this work contains much valuable history. The author did much to organize a group of latter-day vigilantes to break up a band of horse and cow thieves who became so bold in their operations that drastic measures had to be taken."--Ramon Adams. "Stuart was one of the first great cattle barons of the Northwest. His journal is one of the classic accounts of frontier life."--Clark/Brunet. A clean, bright, fine set.

        Album of an RAF serviceman's snapshots. Baghdad, Hinaidi, Diala, Mosul, 1924-1925.

      1925. 42 window-mounted black-and-white prints (c. 64 x 44 mm), 2 full-page prints (c. 80 x 13 mm). Contemp. red cloth album. 8vo. Collection of snapshots documenting the RAF presence in Baghdad during the British Mandate of Mesopotamia. The mandate, established by the partitioning of the Ottoman Empire at the Treaty of Sevres in 1920 and much resented by Iraqi nationalists, followed months of uprisings and heavy fighting quelled by the Royal Air Force and led to the installation of Faisal I as the first King of Iraq in 1921. On 1 October 1922 the Royal Air Force in Iraq was reorganized as the "RAF Iraq Command", which was given control of all British forces in the kingdom. - The present album shows 1920s British aircraft (Sopwith Snipe, de Havilland DH.50, Nieuport Nighthawk, etc.), a camel train ("Ships of the Desert"), native farmers, Iraqi Police, the River Tigris, street life in Baghdad (Bridge Street, River Street, "The Strand"), a local butcher and blacksmith, portraits of fellow RAF servicemen, etc. Front pastedown bears the laid-down winged RAF crest with the motto "Per Ardua Ad Astra".

        Kabuki Kumadori Haykumens Shu (100 Visages maquillés pour le Kabuki). 50 Estampes couleurs. THEATRE JAPON.

      Sans mention d'éditeur. Taisho 14 (1925)., Kyoto (Japon) - Magnifique ouvrage composé de 50 gravures sur bois réalisées par Hayashi Eikichi, rehaussées au pochoir, présentant 50 visages maquillés du théâtre Kabuki. Chaque planche est ornée d'un personnage et de son nom en idéogramme.Le kumadori ( ) est le maquillage de scène porté par les acteurs du théâtre kabuki, en particulier lors des représentations de l'audacieux et emphatique style aragoto. Le maquillage kumadori se compose généralement de rayures de couleurs vives ou de dessins sur un fond blanc, les couleurs et les motifs symbolisant des aspects de la personnalité de l'acteur. De vives rayures rouges indiquent un rôle de puissant héros. Le plus célèbre de ces rôles, et celui qui en est venu à représenter le stéréotype du kabuki en Occident, est le héros de la pièce Shibaraku. Le rouge symbolise la vertu et la puissance. Les méchants sont souvent représentés avec une barbe noire, des veines violettes et des sourcils bleu foncé en forme d'andouillers. Le maquillage bleu peut représenter un fantôme, un esprit ou une autre créature magique, selon les motifs. Les kitsune tel que Genkur dans Yoshitsune Senbon-sakura portent un maquillage bleu. Le bleu représente les émotions négatives comme la jalousie ou la peur; les fantômes dans le drame traditionnel japonais sont souvent piégés par leur attachement à de telles émotions. Le gris et le brun sont parfois utilisés, surtout lorsqu'ils représentent des animaux, des oni (démons), des yôkai (monstres) ou toute autre chose inhumaine. Un exemple en est le tsuchigumo (araignée), combattu par Minamoto no Raik . Feuillets sous étui à rabats en pleine toile moirée verte.

        Moore, T. Sturge] Axel

      Jarrolds Publishers, London 1925 - Thick quarto. Original white cloth with bold gilt-blocked and stamped Art Deco design by T. Sturge Moore on front cover and spine. Limited to 500 Signed (H.P.R. Finberg, publisher), No. 123. Preface by William Butler Yeats. Cover design, exquisite illustrations and decorations throughout by T. Sturge Moore. One of the more impressive gilt-stamped bindings of the period, and seldom seen in fine condition. This without a doubt the finest copy we have seen of this book, with no fading or browning to spine (almost always seen). J. Taylor, in "The Art Nouveau Book in Britain," (1980) has the following quote by T. Sturge Moore concerning the cover design: "The minor decorations are symbols: for the 'uncreated light', an unfigured circle; for the great renunciation, a crucifix; for heaven-reflecting life, a rose." Very fine. [Attributes: First Edition]
