        The Great Gatsby

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1925. First issue, with the four main issue points present: 1) pg. 60, line 16 "chatter" 2) pg. 119, line 22 "northern" 3) pg. 205, lines 9-10 "sick in tired" 4) pg. 211, lines 7-8 "Union Street station." A Very Good+ copy, on account of a faint dampstain to the cloth on the rear board, also faintly visible on the endpapers. Otherwise a very attractive copy with bright spine gilt and a clean text block. Lacking the rare dust jacket. Despite its grand stature today, the book was a commercial failure during Fitzgerald's lifetime, much to the author's surprise and disappointment. Fitzgerald had felt the power of the novel and believed that it was a work of mature artistry. Modern scholars and readers agree and now "Gatsby" is a keystone of any modern first collection.

His Small Contribution to Dream Theory is a collection of short articles published by Freud between the years of 1913 and 1923, which includes Fairy Tale Material of Dreams, A Dream as Means of Proof, Dream and Telepathy, Notes Upon the Theory and Practice of Dream Interpretation, The Limits of Dream Interpretation, The Ethical Responsibility for the Contents of Dreams, and The Occult Significance of Dreams.

        Mathematical Investigations in the Theory of Value and Prices.

      New Haven: Yale University Press,, 1925. Octavo. Original black cloth, spine and front board lettered in gilt. 2 photographic frontispieces and numerous diagrams to the text. Spine faded, ends and corners bruised, light toning to margins, otherwise a bright copy. Royal Statistical Society stamps to front free endpaper and title page, dated 10 February 1926. First edition in book form, first impression, publisher's presentation copy, of the "startlingly original PhD thesis" (Blaug) which expounds the monetary theories for which Fisher became famous and established his international reputation. This is a photo-engraved reprint of Fisher's doctoral work, first published in the Transactions of the Connecticut Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1892. "Fisher's aim in his Mathematical Investigations was to present a general mathematical model of the determination of value and prices. He claimed to have specified the equations of general economic equilibrium for the case of independent goods (chapter 4, sec. 10), although the only mathematical economist whose work he had consulted was Jevons. With commendable honesty he recognizes the priority of Walras's Eléments d'économie politique pure (1874) as far as the equations of the general equilibrium are concerned and likewise the priority of Edgeworth's Mathematical Psychics (1881) as regards the concept of utility surfaces. It appears that, although only a student, Fisher had independently developed a theory of general economic equilibrium that was identical to part of Walras's and included the concept of the indifference surface, one of the fundamental bases of modern economic theory" (IESS V, pp. 476-7). This copy is inscribed, "From the Publishers (Humphrey Milford) Price 4/6 net" on the front free endpaper. Milford (1877–1952) was the head of the London office of Oxford University Press and his name "became a familiar mark on Oxford books, distinguishing London volumes from the Clarendon Press imprint that appeared on works which the delegates supervised at Oxford" (ODNB). As such, his name appears on the title page of this copy.

        Mathematical Investigations in the Theory of Value and Prices.

      New Haven: Yale University Press, 1925 - Octavo. Original black cloth, spine and front board lettered in gilt. Spine faded, ends and corners bruised, light toning to margins, otherwise a bright copy. Royal Statistical Society stamps to front free endpaper and title page, dated 10 February 1926. 2 photographic frontispieces and numerous diagrams to the text. First edition in book form, first impression, publisher's presentation copy, of the "startlingly original PhD thesis" (Blaug) which expounds the monetary theories for which Fisher became famous and established his international reputation. This is a photo-engraved reprint of Fisher's doctoral work, first published in the Transactions of the Connecticut Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1892. "Fisher's aim in his Mathematical Investigations was to present a general mathematical model of the determination of value and prices. He claimed to have specified the equations of general economic equilibrium for the case of independent goods (chapter 4, sec. 10), although the only mathematical economist whose work he had consulted was Jevons. With commendable honesty he recognizes the priority of Walras's Eléments d'économie politique pure (1874) as far as the equations of the general equilibrium are concerned and likewise the priority of Edgeworth's Mathematical Psychics (1881) as regards the concept of utility surfaces. It appears that, although only a student, Fisher had independently developed a theory of general economic equilibrium that was identical to part of Walras's and included the concept of the indifference surface, one of the fundamental bases of modern economic theory" (IESS V, pp. 476-7). This copy is inscribed, "From the Publishers (Humphrey Milford) Price 4/6 net" on the front free endpaper. Milford (1877–1952) was the head of the London office of Oxford University Press and his name "became a familiar mark on Oxford books, distinguishing London volumes from the Clarendon Press imprint that appeared on works which the delegates supervised at Oxford" (ODNB). As such, his name appears on the title page of this copy. Batson, p. 134; Fisher E-8. See Blaug, Great Economists before Keynes (1986), pp. 77–81. [Attributes: First Edition]

        OLD MAN WITH PIPE

      , 1925. 1925. Ulmann, Doris. Unique oil pigment print photograph, image size 8 x 6 in. [20.3 x 15.2 cm.] tipped to art paper 11 x 14 inches. Presented in a 16 x 20 inch archival window-mat. Slight chipping at the bottom blank corners of the photographic stock with no loss of the image; else fine condition. Doris Ulmann (1882-1934), although prolific, the majority of her photographs are unique prints and of these, most are left unsigned. From 1917 through 1925, Doris Ulmann created approximately 150 oil pigment prints. Given the extreme difficulty in obtaining success with this process, the prints are unique monotypes. The subtle details visible in the shadows of this print exhibit a technical mastery of both the exposure and of the pigment process. For a detailed description of Ulmann's oil print process and method of presentation, see p. 276 -77 of Philip Walker Jacobs' excellent THE LIFE AND PHOTOGRAPHY OF DORIS ULMANN. The University of Kentucky Press, 2001.

        [Photo Album]: Lincoln Highway Construction

      Indiana and Kentucky, 1925. Fine. Small oblong octavo. Measuring 8" x 6.5". String-tied with papercovered boards with "Photographs" inside an outline of a flag in gilt on the front. Contents include 54 tipped in gelatin silver photographs and 19 loose photos laid-in. Each measures2.75" x 4.5", and almost all are captioned under the image on a tipped on piece of paper or, in the case of the laid-in images, on their back. The album is about fine with light wear at the edges; internal photographs are fine.This album documents the construction of the Lincoln Highway across the state of Indiana and its junction with the Dixie Highway. The Lincoln Highway was one of the first transcontinental automobile highways in the United States. It was conceived in 1912 by an Indiana businessman, Carl G. Fisher, and formally dedicated October 31, 1913. It ran coast-to-coast from New York City's Times Square to San Francisco's Lincoln Park. Initially, less than half of the route was paved. In an effort to provide the public with a vision of the future, Fisher obtained sponsorship from U. S. Rubber Company to build an "Ideal Section" of roadway between Dyer and Schererville in Lake County, Indiana that had concrete roadbeds, wide banked curves with guard rails, no crossings, and a parallel pedestrian footpath. Fischer also initiated the construction of the Dixie Highway which actually was a series of north-south roads that linked northern Michigan and Chicago with Miami, Florida.The mounted photos in this album are of work on the Lincoln highway and its junction with the Dixie Highway showing the work crew, crew lodging, steamrollers, tractors, tar-spreading trucks, trucks dumping stone, stone-spreading by hand, leveling, loading of tar and stone into company trucks from railcars, vehicles and equipment stuck in sand and mud, and finished roadway including the Ideal Section. The 19 laid-in photographs show roadwork near Bargetown, Burnside, Harrodsburg, Livingston, and Stanford, Kentucky. These images are similar to the Lincoln Highway photos but also include a steam shovel, mule team, and three African-American boys, who according to a caption entertained the work crew with Stephen Foster songs. An important visual history of the first major transcontinental road construction project in the United States from the viewpoint of one of the workers.
