        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 with a faint dampstain at the base of the spine (lower spine gilt obscured/lacking, upper spine gilt intact). Small discoloration on the front board over the "SB" in Gatsby, otherise a clean copy of the book. 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.

        Richard Strauss Signed Program.

      1925 - Richard Strauss signed program. The program was for a concert by the Dusseldorf City Orchestra and Richard Strauss, held April 30, 1925. The program measures 6.5 inches by 8.75 inches. Double matted and framed opposite a photograph of Strauss. The entire piece measures 14.5 inches by 17.5 inches. Richard Strauss was a leading German composer of the late Romantic and early modern eras. He is known for his operas, which include Der Rosenkavalier, Elektra, Die Frau ohne Schatten and Salome; his Lieder, especially his Four Last Songs; his tone poems, including Don Juan, Death and Transfiguration, Till Eulenspiegel's Merry Pranks, Also sprach Zarathustra, Ein Heldenleben, Symphonia Domestica, and An Alpine Symphony; and other instrumental works such as Metamorphosen and his Oboe Concerto. Strauss was also a prominent conductor in Western Europe and the Americas, enjoying quasi-celebrity status as his compositions became standards of orchestral and operatic repertoire. Strauss, along with Gustav Mahler, represents the late flowering of German Romanticism after Richard Wagner, in which pioneering subtleties of orchestration are combined with an advanced harmonic style [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Original Pen and Ink Illustration of Romantic Couple on the Golf Course

      McClure's 1925 - Pen and ink and wash illustration on Bainbridge artists board. Approximately 15" x 10". Thin line of offsetting or mat burn at the very edges, evidence of previous matting on verso, stamped "McClure's" and pencil note "September, 1925" on verso, very good or better. Image of a young lothario staring intently into the eyes of a flapper with bobbed-haired on the ninth hole of a golf course, while a balding and bespectacled elder gentleman, presumably the flapper's father, takes aim with his club at the cranium of the romantic swain. After a good run as a respected news and literary magazine McClure's remade itself as a women's magazine, and published sporadically until it sputtered to a halt in early 1926. Apparently there was no September 1925 issue of McClure's but we assume this was intended to accompany a story there.

        SISTER CARRIE

      Boni & Liveright (1925), New York - A scarce book in its true First Edition of 1900, this is a fairly early copy of a book rarely found signed let alone with such a superb presentation. This copy INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the front endpaper: "For/George W. Wilder/-The book that/introduced me - but/twenty years after/from/Theodore Dreiser/N.Y. April - 1926." Wilder, president of Butterick Publications, met Dreiser in June 1907, and on the basis of his growing reputation for SISTER CARRIE, hired him as editor-in-chief of his magazine THE DELINEATOR. Dreiser's statement of purpose published in the September issue of the magazine centered around woman's mastery of her own destiny, and he dedicated the publication "to strengthening her in her moral fight for righteousness in the world." Many of the magazine's readers were mothers, and one of the first series of articles that Dreiser commissioned was on the care and feeding of infants by Dr. Leonard K. Hirschberg, articles largely written by H. L. Mencken. Dreiser's relationship with Mencken eventually became one of the most interesting literary relationships of the twentieth century. A wonderful opportunity to obtain an outstanding association copy of one of the groundbreaking literary works of the twentieth century. Though many would not think of Theodore Dreiser as an advocate for women's rights, his first book, SISTER CARRIE, was enlightening in its portrayal of a young single woman's struggle to survive in a post-Victorian urban environment. His work shortly after as editor-in-chief of the magazine THE DELINEATOR, briefly described here, provided further evidence for Dreiser's concern for women's struggle to survive in early 20th century American society. Area of discoloration to the cloth at the upper right front corner; spine mildly sunned. Very Good or better with a fine association [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        When We Were Very Young. With decorations by E. H. Shepard.

      London: Methuen & Co, July 1925 - Octavo. Publisher's deluxe red morocco, titles and pictorial decoration to spine and boards gilt, pictorial endpapers, all edges gilt. Rubbing to ends of spine and corners, shall chip to top end of spine, small ownership signature to front endpaper. A very good copy. Illustrated throughout by E. H. Shepard. Tenth impression, second deluxe edition. Milne had no particular ambition to write for children, but in 1922 a glimpse of his two-year-old son Christopher being taught to pray by his nanny inspired him to compose the verse "Vespers", a gently ironic take on the innocence of childhood intended for an adult readership, which was published in Vanity Fair in January 1923. It proved popular, and Milne was asked to contribute to The Merry-Go-Round, a new periodical for children. The success of these pieces led him to consider writing further verses for children, and he composed most of When We Were Very Young as entertainment during a dreary holiday in Wales. Many of the poems first ran as weekly instalments in Punch, charmingly illustrated by fellow contributor Shepard. When We Were Very Young was first published in London on 6 November 1924 to immense acclaim, and the first printing sold out in one day. By the end of the year more than 53,000 copies had been printed of what The Times called "the greatest children's book since Alice" (Thwaite p. 286). Copies of the seventh and tenth impressions were later issued in deluxe bindings, this copy being a tenth impression. [Attributes: First Edition]
