        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.

        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.". 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        Martha. Radierung.

      1925 - Signiert "Hubbuch". Kräftiger Druck auf Velin. 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. Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 2100 [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        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.
