        AN AMERICAN PIONEER IN SCIENCE: WILLIAM JAMES BEAL

      1925 - BAKER, Ray Stannard. [With Jessie Beal Baker]. AN AMERICAN PIONEER IN SCIENCE: THE LIFE AND SERVICE OF WILLIAM JAMES BEAL. Amherst, Mass.: Privately Printed, 1925. 8vo., gray boards with paper title label on the front cover; 94 pages. Limited Edition of an unknown number of copies published for family and friends. Signed presentation from both authors (using their initials) on the front endpaper: "To our dear friends and neighbors the Kenneys, R.S.B. and J.B.B." William James Beal was a well-known professor of botany at the Michigan Agriculture College (now Michigan State University) from 1871 to 1910 and the university's botanical garden is named after him- the oldest continually-operated botanical garden in the United States. Beal was also curator of the college's museum and director of the Michigan state Forestry Commission. Beal and Professor Rolla C. Arpenter also created "Collegeville" which later became East Lansing. Ray Stannard Baker- who married Beal's daughter, Jessie- was a famous American journalist who also wrote under the pen-name David Grayson. He became one of the most famous "muckraking" journalists in the country and co-founder of the "American Magazine." Baker was a close friend and biographer of President Woodrow Wilson and served as his press secretary at the Versailles peace conference ending World War I. A rare book and I have been unable to locate any other copy, much less a signed one! Very Good condition (small repaired crack on spine, minor puckering to boards on rear cover; contents clean & tight). $1,500.00. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Wild Harvest

      NY: D. Appleton. 1925. The Cherokee author's first book. One of the two most important debuts of modern Native American writers, the other being D'Arcy McNickle's book The Surrounded, in 1936. This one, however, preceding McNickle's book as it does by over a decade, may rightfully be called the first Native American novel of the modern era. Signed by Oskison. A small amount of foxing to the book, and some general, modest signs of wear to the cloth; a very good copy, lacking the scarce dust jacket. A landmark volume, seldom encountered at all, let alone signed. First Edition. Hardcover.

        In the Land of the Shah - Being a Series of Announcements Issued by the British Petroleum Co. Ltd. from Britannic House, Moorgate, London E.C. 2

      London: British Petroleum Co. Ltd, Distributing Organisation of the Anglo Persian Oil Co. Ltd., n.d. , 1925. Folio (440 × 298 mm) Original buff printed, yapp-edged, light card wraps. 12 finely-printed monochrome lithographic plates (c. 155 × 200 mm), imposed within a "plate-mark" above descriptive text. Staples a touch rusted, a few minor splits to the edges of the wraps, a scatter of foxing throughout, but overall very good indeed. First and only edition, extremely uncommon, no other copies traced either institutionally or commercially. Evidently these "announcements" were in fact rather grand advertisements for BP, which were gathered together and presented even more grandly still. Publication was noted at the time in the "Wheels of Industry" column of The Commercial Motor, the journal of the commercial vehicle industry; "An extremely beautiful production entitled "In the Land of the Shah" has been issued by the British Petroleum Co., Ltd. which is the distributing organisation of the Anglo-Persian Oil Co., Ltd. The publication forms a portfolio of some of the company's announcements which have appeared in the Press, but that Statement by no means does justice to it, for the " announcements " took the form of delightful drawings of Eastern life, commerce, and customs by Christopher Clark, R.I., and they are reproduced on special paper, so that the impression given is almost that of steel engravings. Each drawing is accompanied by some interesting text. The portfolio is one of those productions that most men will take home. We believe that a copy will be sent to any reader who mentions The Commercial Motor" (The Commercial Motor, 17 November 1925). The images range from the ancient historical - "A Temple of the Fire Worshippers", "The Glories of Ancient Persia", "The Tomb of Khusru Pharviz" - to the contemporary industrial - "Transporting Pipe Line in Persia", on mule back, "150 Miles of Pipe Lines" - via picturesque travelogue - "Ferry-Boats of the Tigris", pitch waterproofed gufas, "A Persian Wedding", as described by Sir Percy Sykes, "A Land of Leisurely Travel", a heavily laden camel caravan. Evocative artwork by Christopher Clark, a British commercial artist-illustrator best remembered for his work for British Railways, often featuring scenes of British pageantry. Fascinating early piece of promotional literature for the burgeoning oil industry. Sheet of British Petroleum Company stationery with roneoed compliments message loosely inserted.

        'La Sainte Vierge'. Manuscript of an unrecorded poem, written in Jean Cocteau's hand

      Ca. 1925.. Very good condition. Manuscript, unpublished poem by the French author and artist Jean Cocteau, written in his hand. Cocteau, raised as a Catholic, had fallen away from the faith, but in 1925 came back to the Church, taking the sacraments for the first time during the Feast of the Sacred Heart. The symbol of the sacred or red heart was very important to Cocteau during his re- conversion, and appears in this poem ("son coeur rouge et or"). Cocteau had an opium addiction at the time, and tried to effect a cure at a French convalescent home in Villefranche-sur-Mer, where he wrote about the existence of God. He was often seen in the town in an ecstatic trance before a statue of the Virgin. Cocteau's poem concludes with a charming image of the Virgin Mary and the gift of her red and gold heart to little girls: "La Sainte Vierge se penche elle donne- a chaque petite fille son coeur rouge et or- livre de Prix" With the original sales receipt from ABAA dealer Emily Driscoll Autographs and Manuscripts, New York, NY. Dated 1957, identifying the poem as item 132 from Catalog #16. The receipt prices the poem at $10, an appropriate price at the time. Jean Cocteau (1889-1963) was a French poet, novelist, playwright, visual artist, and film director, considered one of the most creative, diversified artists of the twentieth century. The poem written in ink on watermarked tissue paper, not folded, evenly toned, perfectly legible. 8 x 10 1/2". The dealer sales receipt with slight loss at top edge, slightly marked, 8 1/2 x 7". Poem not recorded in OCLC.

        Amazing association! The future first President of the State of Israel, Chaim Weizmann, writes his former fiancée about his discussions with Albert Einstein concerning the new Hebrew University of Jerusalem

      Oakwood [London], January 31, 1925. 5.25" x 7". "Displayable Autograph Letter Signed ""Chaim"" in Russian, 2 pages, 5.25"" x 7"", on two conjoined sheets. Oakwood, Addison Crescent [London], January 31, 1925. To pathologist Sophia Sonia Getzova, his ex-fiancée. With complete English translation from The Letters and Papers of Chaim Weizmann, Series A, Volume. XII. Fine condition.In full, ""I've explained to Leo in great detail it is impossible to make any appointments now because the director of the Institute has not yet been appointed. His nomination depends partly on the American doctors. We've proposed Prof. Rosenthal and I'm expecting to hear of their agreement any time now. As soon as it is known, I'll present your candidature to Rosenthal and shall, of course, support it. It's impossible to proceed otherwise just now.""I've explained how matters stand both to Leo and to Einstein, who has spoken to me about this. I have only limited influence in this Institute, which is getting its entire financial support from the American doctors, and any precipitate step on my part might spoil the chances of success. As soon as the director of the Institute is appointed, I'll be able to approach him.""I'm leaving for America on Wednesday and hope to make final arrangements there regarding the director; I shall then be able to take further steps. With my best wishes for your health andf warm greetings.""After being engaged to Sophia Sonia Getzova (1872-1946) for four years (1898-1901), Chaim Weizmann broke the engagement, and in 1906, after a five year engagement, he married Vera Chatzmann. They were married until his death, as President of Israel, in 1952.From Volume 62, 2015/2016, of Scopus, the magazine of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, page 7: ""Russian-born Sophia Getzova was a pioneering pathologist who, despite outstanding academic credentials, was unable to obtain a permanent appointment in Europe due to her foreign origins and gender. In 1925, with a warm reference from Prof. Albert Einstein, she emigrated and was appointed head of the Institute of Pathological Anatomy at the Hadassah Hospital on Mount Scopus. In 1927, as part of a cooperation agreement between the Hebrew University and Hadassah, Getzova was appointed a senior lecturer. She was named Professor Emeritus in 1940.""Provenance: Sotheby's, May 15, 1997, lot 92"
