        The Review of English Studies Vol. 1 - No. 3, July 1925, The Devil's Coach-Horses, with Custom Clamshell Case

      London: Sidgwick & Jackson, LTD, 1925. First Thus. Original Wraps. Very Good/No Jacket, as Issued. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. The Review of English Studies, A Quarterly Journal of English Literature and the English Language. Edited by R. B. McKerrow, Litt.D. Vol. 1.-No. 3. July 1925 The Devils Coach-Horses By J.R.R. Tolkien. From Wikipedia, The Devil's Coach Horses is a 1925 essay by J. R. R. Tolkien ("Devil's coach-horse" is a British expression for a particular kind of rove beetle). Tolkien draws attention to the devil's steeds called eaueres in Hali Meidhad, translated "boar" in the Early English Text Society edition of 1922, but in reference to the jumenta "yoked team, draught horse" of Joel (Joel 1:17), in the Vulgata Clementina computruerunt jumenta in stercore suo, (the Nova Vulgata has semina for Hebrew ???? "grain"). Rather than from the Old English word for "boar", eofor (German Eber) Tolkien derives the word from eafor "packhorse", from a verb aferian "transport", related to Middle English aver "draught-horse", a word surviving in northern dialects. The Proto-Germanic root *ab- "energy, vigour, labour" of the word is cognate to Latin opus. This lovely volume is very well preserved in Very Good Plus condition, showing some edgewear consisting of a minor chip with some loss, a couple of closed tears, and folding along the bottom edges of the original wrappers. The text block shows very little browning to the pages, no foxing, no names or markings, nice and clean. The uncut edges are uniform at the top, with some outsized pages on the side, while the bottom is quite uneven in regards to page length. Minor curvature to the spine, with very minor loss to the bottom fold area. A very scarce piece in rare condition, now housed in a custom Italian cloth clamshell cases with title and author gilt stamped to the spine, the JRRT monogram to the front and rear boards. An exceptional opportunity to add this splendid volume to any Tolkien Collection. Digital photo's available, inquire if interested. Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, and Signed/Numbered/Limited Editions. Very Good / No Jacket, as Issued.

        Nu Feminin

      1925 - CHIMOT, Édouard. â&#128;&#156;Nu Feminin.â&#128;&#157; Original signed color aquatint. Paris, circa 1925. Original large aquatint image (13 by 17-1/2 inches), sheet measures 20-1/2 by 26 inches. $1800.Impression number 21 of only 200 copies of this beautiful full-length color aquatint of a female nude, signed by Chimot both in the plate and on the print.Influenced by Lautrec, Renoir, Rodin and later the Symbolists, Édouard Chimot taught himself painting and directed his talent primarily to etching, often for fine private-press limited editions. Best known for his voluptuous erotic images, he has been called â&#128;&#156;the painter of feminine sensualityâ&#128;&#157; (Slatkine, Livres Illustrés 1900-1930). Chimot reached his artistic height during the 1920s and early 30s. He had become a significant figure in the Paris art world, with a public â&#128;&#156;hungry for his late-Symbolist nudes, â&#128;&#152;soumises à leurs passions mortelles et délicieusesâ&#128;&#157; (André Warnod). Fine condition, with only a few minor white spots to margin (not affecting image). [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Notorious Sophie Lang.

      London: William Heinemann Ltd.,, 1925. Octavo. Original red cloth, titles to spine gilt, with the pictorial dust jacket. Spotting to the edges but a excellent copy in the chipped and somewhat creased dust jacket, tanned at the spine and generally a little grubby. First edition, first impression. This first of the author's three novels filmed in 1936. Sophie Lang was a jewel thief who featured in several books and a trio of picaresque movies. Of these the first - based on the present title - is by far the most successful. Despite the success of Anderson's works this title was not published America and must have had a scant print run in the UK since copies in any condition are seldom encountered and examples in the dust jacket are of the utmost scarcity.

Octavo, original full cream parchment gilt, top edges gilt, uncut and mostly unopened, inner glassine dust jackets with outer blue paper dust jackets. $7500.Conrad did not publish his first novel until the age of 38, but his work earned him a place with the great modernists of the 20th-century, â&#128;&#156;among the very great novelists in the languageâ&#128;&#157; (Drabble, 225). This edition was originally intended to be 377 copies, each signed by Conrad.

        The Great Gatsby

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons 1925 - First edition, first printing. Publisher's dark blue-green cloth, front board lettering stamped in blind, spine lettering stamped in gilt. About near fine, with some faint toning and a slight lean to the spine, light wear to the spine ends, spine lightly starting at the half-title, faint toning to the otherwise clean pages. A very attractive copy. Bruccoli A11. While it has since been regarded as masterful piece of classic literature, The Great Gatsby did not gain popularity until after the author's death in 1940. The novel tells the story of the star-crossed lovers Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan against the backdrop of wealthy and materialistic West Egg, Long Island, during the Prohibition Era. Although Fitzgerald meant the text to be critical of the 1920's social climate, today The Great Gatsby is beloved for its vivid descriptions of extravagant parties, palatial homes, and eccentric characters that are emblematic of the Jazz Age. The text remains extremely popular today and is widely taught in schools across the United States. The first edition was printed in a run of 20,870 copies; today, Scribner's sells almost 25 times as many copies per year as printed books and e-books. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Autograph manuscript (fragment).

      N. p., [c. 1925]. - Large 8vo. 12 pp (numbered 29 to 40). A large portion of her essay "Composition as Explanation", published in 1925. "And so there was the natural phenomena that was war, which had been, before war came, several generations behind the contemporary composition, because it became war and so completely needed to be contemporary became completely contemporary and so created the completed recognition of the contemporary composition. Every one but one may say every one became consciously became aware of the existence of the authenticity of the modern composition. This then the contemporary recognition, because of the academic thing known as war having been forced to become contemporary made every one not only contemporary in act not only contemporary in thought but contemporary in self-consciousness made every one contemporary with the modern composition. And so the art creation of the contemporary composition which would have been outlawed normally outlawed several generations more behind even than war, war having been brought so to speak up to date art so to speak was allowed not completely to be up to date, but nearly up to date, in other words we who created the expression of the modem composition were to be recognized before we were dead some of us even quite a long time before we were dead. And so war may be said to have advanced a general recognition of the expression of the contemporary composition by almost thirty years". - In her essay, Stein connects World War I&#146;s influence on the evolution of warfare (and the shifting consciousness of the citizens and soldiers of those nations involved) to the role of Modernism in the evolution of the arts. - Slightly browned; in pencil.

László Moholy-Nagy (1895 - 1946), der zunächst Jura studiert, sich dann aber der Malerei zugewandt hatte, war von 1923 an als Formmeister der Metallwerkstatt und Leiter des Vorkurses am Bauhaus in Weimar tätig und lehrte dort sowie in Dessau bis 1928. Moholy-Nagy, der sich auch intensiv mit Fotografie und Typografie beschäftigte, avancierte zu einem der bedeutendsten Bauhaus-Lehrer; er fungierte als Assistent von Walter Gropius und gab mit diesem gemeinsam von 1924 an die Bauhausbücher heraus.

Nach der nationalsozialistischen Machtergreifung emigrierte Moholy-Nagy zunächst in die Niederlande, dann nach England und schließlich in die Vereinigten Staaten, wo er das \"New Bauhaus\" und die \"School of Design\" gründete.
