        [Manuscript]: [Key] to a Knowledge of Nature

      [Circa 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. .

        Typed letter signed "Alban" to composer Paul von Klenau

      1 page. Large octavo. Dated Trahütten, September 23, [19]29. On stationery with "Trahütten in Steiermark Post: Deutsch-Landsberg via Graz" typed in red ink at head. With the original envelope postmarked September 23, [19]29 with Klenau's name and address in Copenhagen and Berg's return address in Vienna typed in red ink to verso. Several small corrections, presumably in the composer's hand. In German (with translation). Berg reacts to Klenau's announcement regarding a performance of the Three Fragments from Wozzeck (in an unspecified location). He encloses the sung text of the fragments (enclosure not included) and expresses his wish to meet Klenau again in Vienna during the next season, when Wozzeck will be staged there. "This, my dear Paul, is a big surprise! And it doubly pleases me that you are going to do the Fragments from Wozzeck... not only as a fact, but also because of the friendship that you are demonstrating... Strangely, just today, browsing through old sheet music, I found a program leaf with the texts of the Fragments that you may perhaps make good use of for the performance. Maybe such a program insert would be welcome to an audience not really be informed about Wozzeck... For this season I will have ?- listen and marvel (I myself marvel most of all) ?- eight to ten stages for Wozzeck. Even Vienna among them!... " Very slightly worn; creased at fold; envelope slightly worn and soiled. . Three Fragments from Wozzeck, for soprano and orchestra, was composed upon the insistence of conductor Hermann Scherchen, who hoped to direct a concert suite of pieces from Berg's 1925 opera, Wozzeck. Scherchen premiered the Fragments in Frankfurt on June 11, 1924. Paul von Klenau (1883-1946) was a Danish composer of German descent who was trained in Germany and spent most of his creative life there. From the 1920s, he was close to Schönberg's circle and adopted its dodecaphonic techniques. His last completed work, the Ninth Symphony, received its premiere in Copenhagen in March 2014, almost seventy years after its composition.

Oblong format: 7-1/4" x 12" Some viewers may be disturbed by photographs in this album. First many pages of album are occupied by b/w photographs of executions during the First Sino-Japanese War in 1894-96. Beheadings, Shootings, skin flayings... all are represented here.

Photoplay edition. Illustrated with four stills from the landmark 1925 First National silent movie directed by Harry O. Hoyt with special effects by Willis O'Brien (who later animated the creatures for King Kong). The 1925 film was a "lost" film for over 50 years. By contractual agreement, all known prints (positive and negative) were destroyed in 1929. Only a truncated 16 mm print was extant until a nearly full length print was discovered in the film archives of the Czech Republic in the 1990s. Today two restored versions exist, one a third longer than any other version with 30 minutes of footage replaced (nearly complete, and available on DVD), the other a restoration owned by Eastman Kodak (information from an article at the dvd journal website). The film was based on the first Professor Challenger story, in which the scientist and his exploring party locate a remnant of the prehistoric world on a plateau in South America. Challenger's narrative "remains the most famous of its type and has served as a model since its publication." - Anatomy of Wonder (1981) 1-63.

      München, 29. VII. 1925. - 1 S. Gr.-4to. An die namentlich nicht genannte Schriftstellerin Lisa Tetzner (1894-1963): "Das 'Berliner Tageblatt' hat mir Ihre Betrachtungen anlässlich meines Offnen Briefes übersandt und bringt also damit zum Ausdruck, dass es Ihnen nicht opportun erscheint, ihn zu veröffentlichen. Das ist gewissermaßen schade, denn Ihr Aufsatz ist ja sehr hübsch und würde auch im Druck noch viel Vergnügen gemacht haben, aber schliesslich muss ich zugeben, dass die Veröffentlichung nicht unbedingt nötig ist, wie ja denn überhaupt nicht alles Gute unbedingt gedruckt werden muss [.]". - Auf Briefpapier mit gedr.

        The Devil that Slumbers (First Edition)

      London: John Hamilton, 1925. First Edition. First Edition. Rare in or out of jacket. Pulp thriller in which a journalist and a detective battle the Expropriation Society, a criminal organization whose ostensible goal is the establishment of a worldwide communist utopia. The Society's seemingly impossible crimes are the results of an insane doctor's careful use of post-hypnotic suggestions on his unsuspecting patients. Macabre elements include a corrupt industrialist who psychologically tortures his young wife with his collection of snakes and a criminal mastermind who is determined to revenge himself on a romantic rival by injecting the young man with a strain of leprosy. While much of "The Devil That Slumbers" is routine commercial fare, the concluding chapter of the novel prefigures the lurid weird menace scenarios of the Shudder Pulps of the 1930s. Rear board mottled, else Very Good in a Very Good dust jacket. Jacket is chipped, with the "T" in "The" on the front panel missing, with a few short closed tears, light creasing, and a dampstain to the verso of the front panel.

        DOYLE'S ROCK AND OTHER STORIES.

      Oxford: Basil Blackwell, 1925 - Octavo, pp. [1-4] 5-7 [8] 9-288, original medium blue cloth, front and spine panels stamped in orange, bottom edge untrimmed. First edition. "The author's first collection of short stories, many of which examine the theme of crossed signals between male and female characters. One of these (the longest story), 'She'll Never Marry,' pursues the theme into the territory of lesbianism, a notably early example, preceding THE WELL OF LONELINESS by three years, and unusual also for its presentation of Una and Evelyn as a happy, satisfied couple who pull the wool over the eyes of clueless males. Of the other thirteen stories, five have supernatural content. 'The Farm' follows a young boy into an isolated farm house where an old blind woman can sense much about his visual appearance. She envies his vitality and, as he is leaving, begs him for his *anima vitae.* He fails to understand this veiled reference but his girlfriend explains that she may have been asking him to breathe into her some of his vitality (thus losing it himself, making the old woman a kind of vampire?) 'The Buckross Ring' is an excellent supernatural tale with an ecclesiastical setting. 'Tea at Maggie Reynold's' presents another cryptical old woman presenting veiled truths to a confused young man. His surname, she explains, marks him as a descendant of a man who had tricked a mermaid into marriage. After listening to this folk tale, he walks away and begins thinking of all the violent water-related deaths of his relatives. 'The Place of Meeting' presents in play form the reconciliation in an afterlife of an ascetic monk and unrepentant heathen. 'Mr. Tookey' explores faith- healing, and throws in a ghost for good measure. All in all, a not inconsiderable collection. " - Robert Eldridge. Bleiler (1978), p. 188. NCBEL IV 744. Spine just a bit darkened, endpapers just a bit darkened, a near fine copy in very good pictorial dust jacket with shallow chipping at upper spine end and upper edge of rear panel, shelf wear at edges, several creases to front panel, and several internal tape mends.

        BORIS GODOUNOV

      Paris: Éditions de la Pléiade, J. Schiffrin et Cie, 1925. No. 73 OF 390 COPIES on vergé paper, signed by the publisher, from a total edition of 445 copies, 430 for sale n. Hardcover. 311 x 241 mm (12 1/4 x 9 1/2"). 124, [1] pp., [1] leaf (colophon). Translated by J. Schiffrin. No. 73 OF 390 COPIES on vergé paper, signed by the publisher, from a total edition of 445 copies, 430 for sale. Publisher's original dun-colored printed wrappers. With decorative head- and tailpieces and 18 color pochoir plates by Vassili Choukhaeff [Shukhayev]. Spine with vertical crack and some looseness (though the insubstantial volume still intact), the expected minor wear at extremities, but clean inside and out, and with richly colored plates. This is an attractively illustrated edition of a major play by the man Britannica calls Russia's "greatest poet and the founder of modern Russian literature." Written in 1825 and first published in 1831, Pushkin's historical drama is based on the life of Boris Godunov, who served as regent and then as tsar following the death of Ivan the Terrible in 1584. He was widely suspected of having a hand in the death of Ivan's youngest son, the Tsarevitch Dmitry, and Pushkin assumed this to be the case for the purposes of the play. After Boris has become tsar, a young man claiming to be Dmitry appears and challenges Boris' right to rule. The pretender was in fact an ambitious and discontented young monk, but Boris is so overwhelmed with guilt at the murder of the real heir that he dies. His son Fyodor succeeds him but is soon murdered by political enemies. The play ends with the pretender being proclaimed tsar. The illustrations by Vassili Choukhaeff (1887-1973) are reminiscent of Russian icons, their flat forms rendered in bright colors that are beautifully achieved using the pochoir technique. The limited press run makes this an uncommon book to begin with, and it rarely shows up in commerce: ABPC and Rare Book Hub indicate that just five copies have been knocked down at auction since 1968.
