Hemard presents the official text of the sections of the French Civil Code concerning family law with witty, and often mildly erotic, color pochoir illustrations. This book was produced in three editions, each with different limitations and features. The present edition, which is the largest, has an original sketch of two text illustrations by the artist and a set of 65 plates reproducing all of the images in the book. Hemard, a prolific artist, illustrator, designer and author, is best-known for his humorously illustrated editions of serious non-fiction books. Sir Frederick Pollock [1845-1937] was one of the greatest British judges and legal scholars of his day. His treatises on contracts, jurisprudence the common law and other subjects did much to clarify and systematize English law. Several of these were standard texts that went through several editions. He is also remembered for his collaboration with F.W. Maitland on The History of English Law Before the Time of Edward I and his correspondence with Oliver Wendell Holmes, which was published posthumously as The Holmes-Pollock Letters.

        Al Naqd wa al Bayan fi daf' awham Khuzairan (Critique and declaration of Khuzayran's illusions) The only work by the authors, Signed copy.

      Damascus: al- Tarakki press, 1925 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Signed by Author(s). 1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Arabic text on the behavior during funerals in Islam in 140 p. Title page with dedication signed by Muhammad Kamil al qassab to Ali Surour al Zankalouni (one of the concerned Ulema in this declaration and one of the scholars in al Azhar University). Modern fine hard cover binding. The book is the only work by the tow Sheikhs, al Qassam and al Qassab during their deport life in Haifa in Palestine. The book is a critique of tow mufti's legal openion in Haifa regarding the behavior during funerals in Islam. Sheikh Muhammad Iz ad-Din al Qassam was a controversial Arab militant in the British Mandate of Palestine. He was was born in Jableh, Syria, in the northern Latakia Governorate, son of a teacher and adherent of the Qadari Sufi order. He was educated at al-Azhar University. Upon his return he became a teacher and an imam at the local mosque. After Italy's 1911 invasion of Libya, al-Qassam declared a Jihad and collected funds for Libyan resistance, as well as composing a victory anthem. He enlisted dozens of volunteers and set out for Libya, but was detained and ordered home by the Ottoman authorities. He enlisted in the Ottoman army when World War I broke out where he received military training and was attached as a chaplain to a base near Damascus. Returning home before the war's end, al-Qassam organised a local defence force to fight the French, but French-incited internecine infighting led him and several of his followers to head into the mountains to prepare for a guerilla offensive. Al-Qassam was a key figure in the 1921 Syrian revolt against the French when Faisal I declared his kingdom of Greater Syria in Damascus and was sentenced to death after its failure. After the French besieged the city, he fled via Beirut to Haifa, then under the British Mandate, where his wife and daughters later joined him. Already in his forties, he concentrated his activities on the lower classes, setting up a night school for casual labourers and preaching to them as imam in the Istiqlal mosque, and he would seek them out on the streets and even in brothels and hashish dens. His greatest following came from the landless ex-tenant farmers drifting in to Haifa from the Upper Galilee where purchases of agricultural land by the Jewish National Fund and labour policies excluding Arabs had dispossessed many of their traditional livelihoods. He was also a prominent member of the Young Men's Muslim Association. Associated with the Istiqlal party (Independence Party), his activities were financed by several well-off businessmen due to his spreading reputation. In 1929 he was appointed the marriage registrar in Mufti Amin al-Husayni's Supreme Muslim Council Sharia court in Haifa, a role that allowed him to tour the northern villages, whose inhabitants he encouraged to set up agricultural cooperatives. In November 1935, fearing arrest after a British constable had been killed in a skirmish with some of his followers, al-Qassam and twelve of his men left Haifa to hide out in the hills between Jenin and Nablus, spending ten days on the move, during which they were fed by local villagers. When two of his men engaged in a firefight with a Palestine police patrol hunting fruit thieves in which a Jewish policeman was killed, British police launched a manhunt and surrounded al-Qassam in a cave near Ya'bad. In the ensuing battle, al-Qassam was killed. The manner of his last stand assumed legendary proportions in Palestinian circles at the time: 'Surrounded he told his men to die as martyrs, and opened fire. His defiance and manner of his death (which stunned the traditional leadership) electrified the Palestinian people. Thousands forced their way past police lines at the funeral in Haifa, and the secular Arab nationalist parties invoked his memory as the symbol of resistance. (Wikipedia). For the biography of M. Kamil al Qassab, see: James L. Gelvin p. 91 and later: Nationalism and mass politics in Syria at the close of empire..

        The New Yorker -- February 21, 1925 (Issue #1)

      New York: The F-R Pub. Corp, 1925. Original wraps. Very Good. The uncommon February 21, 1925 maiden issue of "The New Yorker", with the dandy Eustace Tilley (created by Rea Irvin) gracing the iconic original cover. This copy has held up nicely -- fragile to be sure but still very solid and with a strong binding. There's very light creasing and wear to the panels and along the lower page edges but the colors remain vibrant and the magazine is crisp and well-preserved, easily meriting a grading of VG. Incredibly, "The Talk of the Town" is prominently featured, even in this inaugural issue, and the illustrations (by the likes of Miguel Covarrubias, Ralph Barton and Herb Roth) set a very important tone and play a key supplementary role. And the wonderful local ads at the rear even feature --remarkably-- a number of small, independent bookshops. The Advisory Editors (as stated on the first page) are made up of: Ralph Barton, Marc Connelly, Rea Irvin, George S. Kaufman, Alice Duer Miller, Dorothy Parker and Alexander Woollcott.

      New Preston, CT: Bernhardt Wall, 1925. Limited Edition, number 28 of 100 copies. Hard Cover. Octavo. Bernhardt Wall. 18 leaves; 16 calligraphic and pictorial etchings plus an etched label tipped in behind the front free endpaper noting that the book has been ?Etched, Printed, Bound, by Berhardt Wall, personally.? Second state with additional etching behind the dedication page so noting the state and the assurances that this book is not glorifying ?grog? despite the over-indulgence by the bees on nectar. Wall goes so far as to suggest that ?the bee government might well follow humans and institute an 18th amendment.? A fantastic playful production for the prohibition era! Bound as issued in cloth backed boards and decorative endpapers; the usual awkward book construction as Wall was most certainly a better engraver and printer than bookbinder; light foxing throughout; previous owner name on a preliminary blank. Uncommon. ?Following Berhardt Wall,? p. 36. Signed by Wall on the limitation page.

        Mir'at al Haramain aw al rihlat ul Hijaziyya wa l Hajj wa masha'iruhu ad Diniyya (View of the tow holy sanctuaries, or travels in Hejaz and the Hajj and it's religious ceremonies)

      Cairo: Dar ul Kutub al- Misriyya, the National library press, 1925 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Arabic text in 2 volumes set with 365 fine photographic plates, documents (captioned in English), maps and plans (some foldings). 514, (index), 395 p with 30 P of biography of the author. First original edition in Dar ul Kutub al Misriyya. In very good condition, in contemporary binding. The author was an Egyptian Major-General, who completed the pilgrimage to Mecca and Medina four times: in 1901 as commander of the military escort of the Egyptian pilgrims and in 1903, 1904 and 1908 in the high office of Commander of the Pilgrimage (Amir al-Hajj). In this position he not only had the opportunity to assist at all the ceremonies of the holy month but also of acquiring an intimate knowledge of the administrative side of the pilgrimage and of the Arabian and Turkish politics in the Hijaz. At the same time he was able to take a great many photographs and to illustrate his book with numerous photographs and plans. For a simple pilgrim the taking of photographs would have been a very dangerous undertaking especially during the ceremonies of the holy month of Dhul Hijja. Sothebys note, from: Max Meyerhof, Review of the Mir'at al-Haramain by Rif'at Pasha in Isis, vol.9, no.1, Feb., 1927, pp.130-133..

        Photograph Album Documenting the U. S. Marine Corps Occupation of Haiti

      Haiti, 1925. Photograph Album. Very good. Almost 300 photographs on about 40 leaves contained in a 10" x 13" album. The photographs range in size from 1.5" x 4.5" to 6.5" x 8.5". About 215 of the photographs document Private Kraemer's duty in Haiti with the 2nd Marine Regiment between 1923 and 1925. The remainder of the images are of family and friends. The photographs have been attached with album corners; several have been reattached with tape. Almost all of the Haiti photographs are captioned in white ink. The photographs and album pages are in nice shape. The album is sound, but has six holes on the front cover where medallions have been removed. An old auction photo shows that one was for the Gendarmerie d'Haiti, a notorious collaborationist police force that was led by Americans on temporary leaves of absence from the Marine Corps. The other was likely a Marine Corps "Eagle, Globe, and Anchor." Several photographs have been removed and a clipped image of the Marine Detachment from the U.S.S. Rochester has been crudely taped to the first page. Kraemer's name is inside the front cover. This collection of photographs shows Haitians, Citadel Laferriere, Port au Prince, Cape Haitian, towns and villages, the countryside, views of Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic, victims of shark attacks, a man with elephantiasis, and most importantly the country's occupation by the U. S. Marine Corps. The photographs include Marine Corps and Gendarmerie buildings and marines parading, shooting at the rifle range, relaxing, swimming, playing baseball, and competing in a track and field meet. Several photos show identified U.S. Navy ships at anchor. Of special interest are images of the Commandant, Major General LeJeune and the Haitian High Commissioner John Russell (a Marine Corps Brigadier General). Kraemer apparently was friends with some of the marines assigned to Marine Corps Fourth Air Squadron as a number of the photographs show aircraft (JN-4 landplanes, an HS-2 seaplane, plane crashes, planes lined up for inspection, etc.) as well as birds-eye views of the country. The highlight of the album is a group of three images showing one of the Marine Corps DH-4B airplanes that set a then-new-long-distance record of 12,500 miles in late 1923, flying to San Francisco and back. Sergeant Peter P. Tolusciak, the plane's co-pilot who would later die in a fiery crash, is shown in two of the photographs.

With: faux-leather album measuring 13? x 11? approx. and titled ?THE SCRANTON LACE COMPANY / Corner Glenn Street and Meylert Avenue? on paper label to front cover. Interior marked ?curtains/table coverings book no. 3.? Contains 273 images of various sizes, cyanotype and gelatin silver mounted on black paper, some captioned with names of product lines. Plus: two invoices for yarn and other textiles. Joints and edges worn, several pages detached. Contents generally fine. A sizable archive of over 1,150 images from the Scranton Lace Company, a major manufacturer that operated from 1890 to 2002, consisting of samples used in home decor ? primarily window treatments and table linens -? likely photographed for internal purposes. Composed mainly of product sample photographs, including images of intricate lace patterns against a dark background and with inventory numbers pinned to the sample. Several enlargements of full table cloths and settings also included, with those mounted in the album cut ? with striking effect ? to create the illusion of a three-dimensional perspective. More than 200 of the images are cyanotypes, which are notoriously fugitive to light and are here uncommonly well-preserved.  The company was a leading producer of decorative lace throughout the 1900s. Notably, the invoices and marginalia indicate at least some of these styles were made from Rayon, which had only debuted commercially in the U.S. in 1924. Also noteworthy, firm designer Hugh Rodham (likely responsible for many of the patterns pictured here) is the grandfather of Hillary Clinton. The bulk of the company?s extant archives are held by two regional museums: Pennsylvania Anthracite Heritage and The Waverly Community House. A comprehensive representation of period lace styles, ranging from traditional to contemporary and art-deco patterns, all rendered in exquisite detail. We will note for purely self-serving reasons that two small lots of about 50 photos ? both of a similar nature and from the same company ? made more than $1000 each at the 2015 Swann vernacular photo auction.

        Uhlands poetische Werke, herausgegeben von Raimund Pissin. Band 1: Gedichte / Band 2: Dramen * G A N Z L E D E R - L U X U S A U S G A B E in 2 Bänden

      Leipzig, Der Tempel Verlag, um 1925. Vollständige Ausgabe in elegantem, aufwendigem Handeinband der Zeit (2 Bände, gebunden jeweils als Ganzfranzband in dunkelblauem Maroquin, geheftet auf 5 erhabene Bünde, Format 21 x 13 cm) mit Rückentitel in Goldprägung auf 2 Lederschildchen, Liniendekoration von Rücken und Deckel in Handvergoldung, Lederhäubchen und handgestochenes Kopfband, Schmuckvorsatz-Papier sowie Ganzgoldschnitt und Zeichenband, in handgefertigtem Schuber mit lederbezogenem Schubermaul, 493 / 525 Seiten, Schrift: Fraktur. Exemplar in sehr guter Erhaltung (Rücken minimal ausgebleicht, Schubert mit leichten Gebrauchsspuren, sonst tadellos). - \"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, Dienerstrasse 14. - Lederausgabe, Luxuseinband, Ganzlederband, Ganzlederfranzband, Ganzfranzband, deutsche Kunstbuchbinderei im 20.Jahrhundert, deutscher Meistereinband, deutsche Literatur im 19.

        Martha. Radierung.

       1925. Signiert \"Hubbuch\". Kräftiger Druck auf Velin. Papier: 40,9 x 31 cm. Nicht bei Vierneisen. Söhn HDO 72720-1. Eines von 125 Exemplaren. Blatt 1 aus: Die Schaffenden, VI. Jahrgang, 2. Mappe, 1929. - Im Jahr 1928 hatte die Zeitschrift \"Die Schaffenden\" ein Graphik-Preisausschreiben veranstaltet, in welchem Karl Hubbuch den 1. Preis erhielt. Aus den eingereichten Arbeiten wurde diese Mappe erstellt. Für das Blatt existieren auch folgende Titel \"Mädchen beim Essen\" und \"Martha frühstückend\". Die Ballettschülerin Martha zählte neben Hilde, Hubbuch 1. Ehefrau, und Marianne ab dem Ende der 20er Jahre zu seinen wichtigsten Modellen. - Karl Hubbuch besuchte zwischen 1908 und 1912 die Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Karlsruhe und danach an die Lehranstalt des Kunstgewerbemuseums in Berlin in der Graphikklasse von Emil Orlik. 1925 bis 1933 war er Professor an der Karlsruher Kunstakademie. Während der 20er und frühen 30er Jahre war seine Arbeit in zahlreichen Ausstellungen zu sehen, unter ihnen 1925 „Neue Sachlichkeit“ in Mannheim und eine Gemeinschaftsausstellung mit Otto Dix und George Grosz in der Galerie Neumann-Nierendorf in Berlin. Vom NS-Regime wurde Hubbuchs Kunst als entartet diffamiert und er wurde mit einem Arbeitsverbot belegt. Nach dem Krieg wurde seine Ernennung als Professor an der Akademie in Karlsruhe erneuert, an der er von 1947 bis 1957 wirkte. Hubbuch nahm weiterhin an zahlreichen Ausstellungen in ganz Europa teil, bis er 1970 nahezu erblindete. - Die großformatige Graphik ist insgesamt sehr gut erhalten. Lediglich in den Rändern zeigen sich leichte Gebrauchs- bzw. Atelierspuren, wie wenige schwache Knicke in den Ecken und leichte Spuren von Druckerschwärze an den Blattkanten. Die rechte Blattkante ist minimal gebräunt. Versand D: 5,00 EUR Expressionismus, Originalgraphik, Die Schaffenden, Originalgrafik, Neue Sachlichkeit

Black cloth with gilt spine lettering and decorations. Top edges gilt. Various paginations. Tissue-guarded frontispieces, pictorial endpapers. Very good. Occasional inoffensive rub and scuff, though internally all volumes rate near fine to fine. Handsome, tight full set of this lovely production of the autobiography of the 18th century Italian adventurer who wouldn't be remembered at all but for the massive work he composed while a librarian later in life recounting his European travels and affairs. This edition limited to 1000 copies (this #386), the first 150 in half morocco and the remainder on imported English cloth. Kent's frontispiece engravings are delightful and the set as a whole a pleasure to behold.

        Principles and Methods of Plant Breeding with Special Reference to Horticultural Crops.

      CORNELL UNIVERSITY 1925 - 4to (25.3 x 18.5 cm. Half leather and cloth boards. Collation: [5] ,238 leaves + numerous photographs mounted on stiff gray cardboard and an original watercolor of a potato by Bowers. The binding is in good condition with minimal wear to ends of spine and corners. Title in gilt on front board. Bowers begins the thesis with is a review of the literature for plant breeding from beginning to end of 19th century and the principle plant breeders. He then describes genetic basis for breeding as well as different aspects of making crosses and pollination. The main body of his research is presented for the different plants and methods he used in creating different varieties. Bowers' signature is on front end paper. Bowers was well known for his publications on rhododendrons. In this masters thesis he presents his research on plant breeding at Cornell which awarded him the degree. This is a significant work because it comes at the time just after Bateson in England and others discovered the importance of the genetic work of Mendel using crosses of garden grown peas. Bowers' research was aimed at discovering what breeding principles were successful in generating new useful crop varieties. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        XX Poemas

      Mexico : Talleres Graficos de la Nacion, 1925. 29pp - Mexico : Talleres Graficos de la Nacion, 1925. 29pp. An unusual Mexican character, often outrageously demonstrative in his homoseuxality, he was fond of outrageous wigs.The author's first publication, One of 200 copies. Salvador Novo López (1904 -1974) was a Mexican writer, poet, playwright, translator, television presenter, entrepreneur, and the official chronicler of Mexico City. As a noted intellectual, he influenced popular perceptions of politics, media, the arts, and Mexican society in general. He was a member of Los Contemporáneos, a group of Mexican writers, as well as of the Mexican Academy of the Language. Novo defied the machismo and conservative Catholicism prevalent in 20th century Mexican culture by making almost no efforts to conceal his sexuality.[1] He was, however, accepted by the Mexican government. He held official posts related to culture, was elected to the Mexican Language Academy, and had a television program on Mexico City's history. Towards the end of his life, he dyed his hair a bright carrot color and wore many ostentatious rings and colored suits. He has been compared to Oscar Wilde, but unlike Wilde, Novo never suffered the setback of scandal or persecution and remained an accepted and respected member of society and governmental circles until his death. In fact, some sectors resented the fact that a gay writer would align himself so closely with the government and media after the repression of social movements in the 1960s and 1970s.Salvador Novo was a provocative and prolific cultural presence in Mexico City through much of the twentieth century. With his friend and fellow poet Xavier Villaurrutia, he cofounded Ulises and Contemporáneos, landmark avant-garde journals of the late 1920s and 1930s. At once "outsider" and "insider," Novo held high posts at the Ministries of Culture and Public Education and wrote volumes about Mexican history, politics, literature, and culture. The author of numerous collections of poems, including XX poemas, Nuevo amor, Espejo, Dueño mío, and Poesía 1915-1955, Novo is also considered one of the finest, most original prose stylists of his generation.
