        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.

        THE UNITED STATES CENTS OF THE YEARS 1801-1802-1803

      Detroit, 1925. 4to, original brown cloth, gilt. 85, (1) pages; 5 fine photographic plates; addition slip tipped in on page 73. Green silk marker with the cardboard cent gauge present. A few authorial annotations in pencil; additional pencil annotations in another hand. Loosely laid in are the July 1931 photographic supplemental plate describing and depicting new 1801 varieties and the January 1928 photographic supplemental plate describing and depicting a new 1803 variety. Inscribed to Robert C. Slone by the author on a front blank. A fine copy. One of the major pre-Sheldon works on U.S. large cents; scarce with both supplementary plates. Concerning Newcomb and this work, Dr. Sheldon wrote: "during the first quarter of the twentieth century and until his death in 1945, Howard R. Newcomb was so closely identified with the big cents that to mention cents was to mention Newcomb... The United States Cents of the Years 1801-1802-1803 ... marks a milestone in the cent literature. Approaching a field which had been left almost in chaos by the Doughty book, Newcomb assembled a vast quantity of numismatic material, ordered and reordered it, finally set up a new classificational system and a list which seemed adequate; and after testing the new list for upwards of a decade, published. The verdict of time on this work has been favorable." About as nice a copy as one will ever see. Davis 745. Voted as one of the Numismatic Bibliomania Society's "One Hundred Greatest Items of United States Numismatic Literature."

      Oblong octavo. Measuring 11.75" x 7.25". String-tied flexible cloth with "Photographs" stamped on the top board. Modest edgewear on the boards, near fine. Contains 272 black and white gelatin silver photographs. Images are various sizes between 1.75" x 2.75" and 3.25" x 4.75", mostly mounted between three and six to a page; one addition 6" x 9" photo on the last page is of a mounted buck . One or two have fallen out or are otherwise lacking, but clearly the album hasn't been pillaged. A few are faded, most are near fine or better. The vast majority are captioned. A beautifully composed and photographed album of hunting and fishing trips in Canada (Quebec, Ontario), and many locations in New England, and the Adirondacks between 1925 and 1930, with one trip to Maryland, Ohio, and West Virginia. Most of the trips seemed to be month or even season-long family trips and are dominated by the proud display of catches of fish and game. Locations are clearly identified, including Lake Chaplain and Bingham Fall, Vermont; Vanderwhacker Mountain and Lake Placid, New York; Lac La Croix and Lac Rognon in Canada; to name a few. While there are many typical camping scenes, the majority are of people in the field, with catches of minks, rabbits, bucks, and various fish proudly displayed by both male and female sporting folk. An unusually nice, well-captioned and finely realized subject specific album. .

        The Great Gatsby.

      Charles Scribners, New York 1925 - First edition, first state with "chatter" p.60, "northern" p.119, "sick in tired" p.205, and "Union Street station" p. 211. Octavo, original dark green cloth. In near fine condition, with the gilt lettering to the spine bright, light rubbing to the endpaper. In 1922, Fitzgerald announced his decision to write "something new--something extraordinary and beautiful and simple and intricately patterned." That extraordinary, beautiful, intricately patterned, and above all, simple novel became The Great Gatsby, arguably Fitzgerald's finest work and certainly the book for which he is best known. A portrait of the Jazz Age in all of its decadence and excess, Gatsby captured the spirit of the author's generation and earned itself a permanent place in American mythology. Cyril Connolly called The Great Gatsby one of the half dozen best American novels: "Gatsby remains a prose poem of delight and sadness which has by now introduced two generations to the romance of America, as Huckleberry Finn and Leaves of Grass introduced those before it" (Modern Movement 48).
