        Mrs. Dalloway

      London: Published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press 1925 - First edition, first printing. One of 2,000 copies. Publisher's deep rust cloth, lettered in gilt. About near fine, with a touch of sunning to the spine, bright gilt, light rubbing to the edges, some light spotting to the page edges and scattered throughout the text block, otherwise fresh pages. A very handsome copy. Kirkpatrick A9a, Woolmer 82. One of the author's best known novels, Mrs. Dalloway tells the story of Clarissa Dalloway as she prepares to host a high-society party. The text is a compilation of two of Woolf's short stories "Mrs. Dalloway in Bond Street" and "The Prime Minister." A stream of consciousness narrative, Mrs. Dalloway follows the protagonist from her decision to "buy the flowers herself" at the start of the day through the completion of her party in the evening. Throughout the novel, Woolf explores the impact of mental illness on daily life, both in Mrs. Dalloway, who reveals that she is being treated for depression, and a second leading character, Septimus Warren Smith, a WWI veteran suffering from PTSD who chooses to commit suicide rather than face involuntary commitment to a psychiatric hospital. Like many of Woolf's novels, the text is centered on philosophy and perception rather than action sequences and dialogue; John W. Crawford agrees in his New York Times Review that "One day in the life of Clarissa Dalloway is the complete story of Mrs. Woolf's new novel, yet she contrives to enmesh all the inflections of Mrs. Dalloway's personality, and many of the implications of modern civilization, in the account of those twenty-four hours."

        Manuscript]: [Key] to a Knowledge of Nature

      1925 - Octavo. 116 typewritten pages, illustrated with five full-page photographic illustrations (three in color) with applied typed captions. Carbon typescript in photographically illustrated papercovered boards. Hand-drawn title page with a picture of a key in the title. Undated but we estimate circa 1925. Some modest erosion and splitting to the paper on the spine of the homemade binding, internally near fine. Inscribed on the front pastedown: "For David E. Sweet from Uncle Ralph Shepard, Author and Publisher." Typed note from the author laid in indicating the painstaking methods that he used to create this volume, and noting that the original of the work ". was used for some time in the nature study class of the school he attended in St. Petersburg, Florida." The book is dedicated in type: "The boy for whom it was first written, and to whom it is Dedicated. Albert Spencer of Florida." In the preface the author states that his belief is that nature is founded on the life of Jesus Christ, and notes that in places he has plagiarized from the Bible, Billy Sunday, William Jennings Bryant, John Burroughs, Neltj Blanchan, Charles Darwin, Joyce Kilmer, Gene Stratton Porter, and others. We could find out little about the author, but Albert Spencer of St. Petersburg appears to have been born in 1915. An attempt to explain nature with details and interesting photographic illustrations. Considering the do-it-yourself typing, binding, and illustrations, presumably no more than a handful were created; and possibly unique. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Land Book of the Borough of Manhattan, City of New York. Desk and Library Edition. 1925.

      G. W. Bromley & Co., New York 1925 - 1925 edition. VERY GOOD+. Pages are near fine; lightly toned along the outside margins but are otherwise clean and unmarked, the colors clear and bright. Two leaves have short closed tears at bottom edge, but otherwise pages are in exceptionally fine quality. Black cloth hardcover, red stamped title on front, is clean, moderately rubbed along edges and hinges. Cloth is frayed at spine ends, corners and several spots on the outside edges. Binding intact though loose, the hinges wobbly. All pages are firmly held. The book should stand gentle use for some time but would benefit from a professional binding reinforcement. An extraordinarily detailed record of Manhattan in a series of 191 maps clearly showing the streets and outlines of each and every structure, every park, every railroad track including elevated railroads, water and sewer pipes and even fire hydrants, from Battery Park to 228th Street. Even more miraculously, details about the buildings are supplied through ingenious keys. Clearly noted are the number of stories, the depth of the building, presence of basements, of storefronts, and elevators. Even structure (brick, frame or iron covered) is indicated by coloring. Each of the plates has been meticulously hand-tinted in pinks, blues, yellows - and greens if a park is present. To help the user navigate the maps a 1-page Block Index (printed on the front pasted endpaper), 4-page Street Index and 5-Page Map Index (which include the "Explanations" or keys) are provided at the front of the book. The 191 plates follow. Book measures 16-3/4 x 11-3/4". An unusually well-preserved copy of this scarce, very desirable work. Additional photos available on request.

        [An Archive of Scranton Lace Company Sample Images]

      (Scranton, PA), (ca. 1925). 675+ gelatin silver photographs measuring 3.25” x 4” approx. depicting lace samples against a black background, item numbers pinned to lace. Some curling, else generally fine. Plus 140+ lace sample cyanotypes, measuring 4.75” x 3” approx. Generally very good. Plus 31 additional images in black-and-white: eight 15” x 12” approx., others various smaller sizes. 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.

        The Female Figure (First Edition)

      New York: Arthur Allen Studios, 1925. Photo album portfolio sold to subscribers by Allen from his Arthur Allen Studios circa 1915-1925, containing more than 40 pages of original nude photographic prints pasted onto stiff pages. Each photo is discreetly rubber stamped (1 to 40) at the bottom right corner. Each leaf has between two and four different images, with many leaves showing four separate poses of the same model. The final three pages of the portfolio were issued blank, but include 22 additional contemporary photographic and card stock images tipped in, likely their intended use by the publisher. The first page includes a tipped in title page and a bound in brochure announcing this particular series (along with a pencil note, "Received 19 Ap 1923") and predicting: "We are entering a period of nudity." Allen (1886-1962) was a pioneer in nude photography who was unique in that his models displayed certain regions of the female form not documented by other photographers of the time. Allen claimed this was not for salacious reasons, but rather his earnest attempt to display the entirety of nude figure for artistic and "democratic" ideals. He explained in his biography, "To see womankind entirely nude would place all women on equality. And it would be only their true mental and physical charm that would lift them from the ordinary." Allen was arrested and indicted on several occasions during the 1920s for distributing obscene material but continued undaunted. He further pushed the boundaries with a portfolio of women from other races and a film of nude woman performing choreographed routines and military drills. Eventually he became a photographer for the Elysium Foundation, a nudist society, before fading into obscurity. An interesting and arresting (how could we resist) collection of images from the early part of the twentieth century by an unsung pioneer in nude photography. Quarto. 40 pages, string bound textured paper wrappers. Very Good overall. Moderate wear to the extremities with some waviness to the pages and some photos lifting at the corners but all still firmly secured.
