With a photogravure frontispiece of Blake's death mask by Emery Walker and sixty collotype plates of Blake's drawings and paintings to illustrate the poems.

Bound in quarter vellum and marbled paper, gilt-titled to spines. This copy has been protected in plain dust wrappers printed with "Blake" and the volume numerals to the spines. Corners slightly bumped, dust wrappers lightly toned to spines, and with a few spots to the front panel of the dust wrapper of volume one, else a fine set. A pencil note to the front endpaper inscribed by the legendary bookseller Herman Cohen of the Chiswick Book Shop indicates that this is the only dust wrapper he had ever seen on this set; no indication of dust wrappers is recorded in the Nonesuch bibliography. Below the note, Cohen has written, "Bruce Rogers's best friend in England." The front past-down of each volume bears the bookplate of A. T. Bartholomew, noted Cambridge University librarian and bibliographer, and close friend of both Geoffrey Keynes and Bruce Rogers. (Dreyfus 24, p. 30). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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"

        G B Bodoni's Preface to the Manuale Tipografico of 1818

      London: Elkin Mathews Ltd., 1925. Octavo. (xii), 57pp. One of twenty-five copies printed on Japanese vellum and signed by the translator, H.V. Marrot, who was the director of Elkin Matthews Ltd. This copy bears a lengthy inscription by Marrot to the English piano composer, Kaikhosru Sorabji. Dated 16 December, 1925, Marrot writes of his pleasure in finding this book on Sorabji's shelf and praises him as an "exceptional auditor...for any writer on printing whose treatment of his subject is aesthetic rather than technical." Indeed, such a distinction appears to have been the guiding principle behind this, the first translation of Bodoni's preface into English. Marrot alludes to this in the Translator's Preface. He also acknowledges the assistance of Stanley Morison in this endeavor. Faint edgewear, slight bowing to covers, else fine in original decorated paper-covered boards.

        Kingdom of the Pearl, The

      New York: Brentano's, 1925. - One of 100 Copies Signed by Edmund DulacIn the Original Printed Dust Jacket[DULAC, Edmund, illustrator]. ROSENTHAL, Léonard. The Kingdom of the Pearl. Illustrated by Edmund Dulac. New York: Brentano's [n.d., 1925].American deluxe limited edition (first published with Dulac illustrations in French in 1920 with title: Au Royaume de la Perle). One of 100 copies numbered and signed by the artist (this copy being No. 48), out of a total edition of 775 copies "for sale in the United States of America"). Large quarto (11 15/16 x 9 5/8 inches; 303 x 243 mm.). [12], 150, [1], [1, printer’s imprint] pp. Ten mounted color plates, with descriptive tissue guards.Original quarter vellum over cream paper boards. Front cover and spine decoratively stamped and lettered in gilt. Top edge gilt, others uncut. Decorative endpapers. A fine copy in the original printed dust jacket. From the renowned collection of Estelle Doheny, with her neat leather book-plate on front paste-down."Au Royaume de la Perle was first published in Paris (by Payot) in 1919 without benefit of the Dulac illustrations which the author Mr. Rosenthal so eagerly sought. But when, in 1920, Dulac found time to produce 10 pictures, Mr. Rosenthal not only purchased the water colours, but had another publisher, Piazza of Paris, publish a 1,500-copy new edition of his ‘Perle’ book with the Dulac illustrations. Also Dulac reveals in a reply to a Mr. Carroll of Massachusetts who hoped to buy one of the ‘Pearl’ illustrations that Mr. Rosenthal also purchased the copyright to the 10 pictures. However Mr. Rosenthal did allow his book with Dulac pictures and in English translation to be published in England by The Nisbet Publishing House The English edition, although praised by The Times Literary critic as Dulac ‘at his best’ and ‘fantastically Persian,’ was not a commercial success. In order to make use of the 775 sheets remaining from 1,550 printed for the English edition, arrangements were made in 1925 to market an edition through Brentano’s, booksellers in New York The ‘Pearl’ pictures indeed display a ripening of a Dulac style first seen in Sindbad the Sailor, employed in some of his Fairy Book pictures and developed fully in The Tanglewood Tales. It is a Persian miniature style, but made quite his own His plates, truly genius, do much to bring a fanciful touch to the otherwise stark exposition of a treatise on pearls" (Hughey).Hughey 54d.

        Photo Album - Large Format - Loening Arctic Amphibian Planes Used for the MacMillan Arctic Expedition

      Alaska 1925 - Anacostia Naval Station, San Diego Naval Station, Alaska, 1925-1926. Album of large professional press photographs of the Loening Amphibian Planes used for the 1925 MacMillan Arctic Expedition, and also for the Alaskan Aerial Survey Expedition. Contains 23 photographs, some with embedded captions or photographer's stamp, mounted with corners onto black cardstock leaves. All large print format, photographs vary slightly in size, measuring from approximately 22 x 16,5 cm to approximately 25 x 20 cm. With a typescript note addressed to unidentified media personnel regarding appropriate attribution for the photographs. Oblong Folio album measuring approximately 37 x 28 cm, black paper boards. Boards bowed and chipped at extremities, otherwise in Very Good Condition, excellent photographs. Superb large photographs exhibit the unique features of the amphibious aircraft built by Loening Aeronautical Engineering Corporation of New York, while recording the first successful American aerial Arctic exploration, and the subsequent large scale survey which would dramatically augment Alaska's principle industries by applying aviation. 1925 MacMillan Arctic Expedition (12 Photographs) Led by Commander Donald Baxter MacMillan, who was accompanied by Richard E. Byrd, this joint expedition, sponsored by National Geographic, would prove to be the first productive use of aircraft in arctic regions by Americans, and would earn Byrd a leading reputation in polar aviation. The American made amphibian aircraft, however, is the focus of this album, the first being a view of the model OL-1 A-6879, taken by at the Anacostia Naval Station in D.C. on 14 May 1925 by Pacific and Atlantic Photographs Inc. of New York City (P & A Photo). Striking views of the airplane are captioned 9 May 1925, and after being tested at sea, two show images the aircraft being hoisted onto MacMillan's Polar steamship 'Peary' for the north bound voyage. This series concludes with the steamer Peary photographed in icy waters, appearing rather dwarfed alongside a sizeable wall of jagged ice. Donald MacMillan was a pioneer in experimenting with technology that would eventually change life in the Arctic for residents and visitors alike. A Donald B. MacMillan Collection can be found in the Bowdoin College Library Special Collections, Peary MacMillan Arctic Museum & Arctic Studies Center. 1926 Alaskan Aerial Survey Expedition (11 Photographs) Organized by the U.S. Navy, 112 navy men were assigned to the expedition under Captain Charles W. Call, to conduct a highly successful aerial survey of Southeast Alaska, which resulted in 10,000 miles of photographed territory, detailed meteorological recording, and subsequently, a notable increase in the use of aviation for various industries including forestry, mining and fishing. Three photographs illustrate final testing of type OL-3 serial numbers A-7055 and A-7061. Commemorating the departure of the aircraft for Alaska, two photographs are taken by Harry T. Bishop (1895-1963) at the San Diego Naval Station. Finally having arrived at Ketchikan, Alaska, on June 9th, prepared to explore unknown Arctic regions with aerial photographic charting and to test radio communications systems, images feature a flight crew having safely landed on a desolate rocky shore, as well as aerial views of the mountains and glaciers. The expedition had remained in Ketchikan for two months before proceeding on to Wrangell, and then to Juneau where it was based until September 10th. An exceptional and scarce visual chronicle of pioneering Arctic flight and aerial surveying. Donald Baxter MacMillan (1874-1970) made over 30 expeditions to the Arctic in his 46-year career. Explorer, sailor, teacher, philanthropist, researcher, and lecturer, he traveled over 300,000 miles charting new territory, training students, performing scientific research and studying and aiding the native people of Labrador and Greenland. He pioneered the use of radios, airplanes, and electricity

        In the American Grain

      New York: Albert & Charles Boni, 1925. 1st. Cloth. Collectible; Very Good/Good. The 1925 1st edition, IN THE UNCOMMON ORIGINAL DUSTJACKET. Solid and VG- (with light soiling at the rear panel and spine) in a bright, price-intact ($3.00), soft green/blue jacket. Light chipping at the top-edges and spine crown (with no loss to the text) and more pronounced chipping at the foot of the spine, which shows a 2 1/2" loss (including publisher's name) at the base. Overall, upward of 10% loss to the jacket, rendering this copy a G+. Octavo, 235 pgs. As the 1st trade publication put out by William Carlos Williams, this represents an important mark in early 20th century American literature and, with its elusive dustjacket, is scarce as such.

        Gentlemen Prefer Blondes; But Gentlemen Marry Brunettes

      New York: Boni & Liverlight,, 1925 & 1928. Illustrated by Ralph Barton. 2 works, octavo. Original red cloth, spine and front board lettered in gilt; original black cloth-backed black and white patterned boards, spine lettered in gilt. With the dust jackets. Housed in a red linen chemise and scarlet morocco slipcase. With a loosely inserted typescript letter. Black and white illustrations in the text. Gentlemen Prefer Blondes: Small bookplate to rear pastedown. Spine rolled, otherwise a superb copy in the bright jacket that has chip to front panel, and some nicks to spine ends. Gentlemen Marry Brunettes: Tips rubbed, small black stain to fore edge; an excellent copy. First editions, first printings, both presentation copies, the volumes inscribed on the front free endpaper: "To Carmel Myers, with all love and sympathy of a fellow brunette. Anita Loos. Dec. 30. 1925" and "To dearest Carmel—this vindication for we brunettes. Anita Loos." Carmel Myers (1900?-1980) was a silent film actress best remembered for her role in Ben Hur (1925). During the filming in Rome, she befriended Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald. After her screen career, she was an early television talk-show host, led a production company that packaged radio and television shows, held a patent for an electronic synchronizer that controlled studio lights, and imported and distributed French perfume. Each volume has the elegant hand coloured bookplate of Anita Loos to the front pastedown, printed on copper foil and featuring the striking design by Frank Walts of a woman's head in profile. A superb set, housed in a custom slipcase that is at least 60 years old, as evidenced by the accompanying letter from a bookseller in 1950.
