        OUR SOUTH AMERICAN TRIP [Cover Title]

      Buenos Aires, [1925]. Very good +. Commercial oblong folio album in textured leather covers. String bound, approximately 11.5" x 15.5". Gilt titles (including Perkins' name) stamped to front. 49 leaves, 46 with photographs, postcards and various scrap materials mounted both recto and verso with final 3 pages blank. 177 black and white snapshot photographs in various sizes, most approximately 5.75” x 3.5”. Also with: 72 photographic postcards as well as several ephemeral articles including letters, business cards, hotel receipts, programs, menus, invitations, booklets, etc. Leather flaking at cover edges with a bit of dry rot. Slightly worn at page ends, a few elements apparently perished. Otherwise well preserved with contents generally very good or better. Scrapbook and photograph album belonging to Fred W. Perkins, then Chief of the Office of Motion Pictures for the United States Department of Agriculture, chronicling his trip and work as motion picture photographer for the U.S. delegation attending the first Pan American Congress of Highways, held in Buenos Aires in October, 1925 (with 14pp. program and other scrap from same present). Images begin as the party, aboard the S.S. Santa Ana, makes its way through the Panama Canal, headed south along the western coast of South America, capturing the partyÂ’s meetings with dignitaries as well as the citizens and environs of Panama City, Talara (Peru), Lima, Mollendo (Peru), Tocopilla (Chile), Antofagasta (Chile), Chanaral (Chile), Coquimbo (Chile), Valparaiso (Chile), Santiago (Chile), Buenos Aires, Montevideo (Uruguay), Rosario (Brazil), Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. Notable figures shown include President Chiari (Panama), President Augusto Leguia (Peru), U.S. General John J. Pershing, President Arturo Alessandri (Chile), President Marcelo T. de Alvear (Argentina), President Jose Serrato (Uruguay) and Governor Washington Luis (Sao Paulo). The album carefully records the delegation's travels, with all photographs meticulously captioned, and ends with a photo of the delegation being received by President Coolidge upon its return. The meeting was the first of many cooperative gatherings between the United States and the Central and South American countries who would come to develop the Pan-American Highway, EarthÂ’s most vast roadway network. But for an approximately sixty-mile break along the Panama-Colombia border, it stretches continuously from Alaska, just south of the Arctic Circle, to the Southern tip of Chile, connecting all of The Americas. An extensive album of clearly captioned photographs, travel receipts, business and calling cards, programs, and the like. A important memento, with expertly crafted images of not only the delegationÂ’s activities, but also Perkins at work as an early film documentarian.

        Masch. Brief m. eigenh. Unterschrift u. Beilage.

      Murnau, 7. XI. 1925.. 1 S., 4° u. 3 S., 4° (Beilage).. An Bernhard Fürstenau in Berlin-Charlottenburg; auf Briefpapier "Reichstag / Abgeordneter". - "[...] Es liegt mir gar nicht über mich selbst etwas zu sagen oder zu schreiben, da ich der Meinung bin, dass das Werk für einen Mann sprechen muss [...]. Unter der Vorausetzung [sic] taktvoller Verwendung und mit der Bedingung, dass Sie mir den betreffenden Absatz aus Ihrem Buche vor Drucklegung vorlegen, will ich Ihnen auch noch eine Kopie meines heutigen Briefes n [sic] meinen Freund Oberst Jankovic beilegen [...]. Wenn Sie im Dienste der Neuen Schopenhauergesellschaft schreiben, so darf ich wohl annehmen, dass Sie nicht Jude sind [...]. - Beiliegend die erwähnte Kopie (Typoskript-Durchschlag; dat. 6. XI. 1925), ebenfalls auf Briefpapier des Reichstages. "[...] Hitler mag ruhig der von der Öffentlichkeit bejubelte Führer und Wegebereiter sein, sein Verdienst ist es auch, dass ganz Deutschland von ihm spricht. In seinem Buche Mein Kampf' hat Hitler mich in seiner eindrucksvollen Weise als den Programmatiker der nationalsocialistischen Bewegung gewürdigt; ich habe mich darüber gefreut [...]. Leider haben Wulle und der sonst so nüchterne Graf Reventlow einen unerhörten Feldzug gegen Hitler und die Nationalsocialisten eröffnet [...]". Feder beschreibt weiters seinen Prozess wegen Hochverrats, seine Reisetätigkeit als "Propagandist unserer Bewegung", seine Begegnung mit Othmar Spann ("Ich möchte aber bitten, dass hierüber nichts veröffentlicht wird"), seine Bestellung zum Reichstagsabgeordneten, die Freiheitspartei usw. - Feder nahm 1923 am Hitlerputsch teil und verfasste 1931 als Vorsitzender des Wirtschaftsrates der NSDAP die Schrift "Das Programm der NSDAP.". - Der Brief am oberen Rand mit einem eigenh. Vermerk des Empfängers Bernhard Fürstenau: "Beantwortet mit langem Brief am 12. 11. 1925. F." - Am linken Rand mit Rostflecken (wohl durch wieder entfernte Heftklammern).

        The Great Gatsby.

      Charles Scribners, New York 1925 - First edition, first state with "chatter" p.60, "northern" p.119, "sick in tired" p.205, and "Union Street station" p. 211. Octavo, original dark green cloth. In near fine condition, with the gilt lettering to the spine bright. An very nice example. In 1922, Fitzgerald announced his decision to write "something new--something extraordinary and beautiful and simple and intricately patterned." That extraordinary, beautiful, intricately patterned, and above all, simple novel became The Great Gatsby, arguably Fitzgerald's finest work and certainly the book for which he is best known. A portrait of the Jazz Age in all of its decadence and excess, Gatsby captured the spirit of the author's generation and earned itself a permanent place in American mythology. Cyril Connolly called The Great Gatsby one of the half dozen best American novels: "Gatsby remains a prose poem of delight and sadness which has by now introduced two generations to the romance of America, as Huckleberry Finn and Leaves of Grass introduced those before it" (Modern Movement 48).

        The Tree of The Folkungs [Signed / Ingraverat] [The Tree of the Young People; Folkunga Trädet: Folke Filbyter and Bjälboarvfet]

      Alfred A. Knopf, 1925, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good +, First American editionA Very Good + copy of the first American edition, first printing, first issue (a smaller, later binding up was issued in the same year) in the Publisher's original green cloth (lacking the dust jacket -- if one was issued) with the front board lettered in gilt and decorated with green and red paint (spine ends pushed, slight rubbing to the spine ends and board corners), SIGNED BY VERNER VON HEIDENSTAM on the title page. Swedish Poet and Novelist Verner Von Heidenstam, known for the joy of life shown in his prose and poetry, won the 1916 Nobel Prize in Literature "in recognition of his significance as the leading representative of a new era in our literature". Originally published in Swedish in two volumes titled Folke Filbyter (1905) and Bjälboarvfet (1907), the work was given special notice at the ceremony held to present the Prize to von Heidenstam where the noted Swedish critic Sven Söderman stated: "Truly monumental are the two volumes of Folkunga Trädet (1905-07) [The Tree of the Folkungs], Folke Filbyter and Bjälboarvet [The BjäIbo Inheritance], which constitute the trunk and lower branches of «the genealogical tree of the Folkungs», a great historical prose epic in which he [von Heidenstam] retraces the character of a clan of chieftains and the destinies of the Swedes during a period of the Middle Ages. Here the historical imagination of the author, sustained by an inspiration forever fresh, follows all threads in weaving the fates of his characters. His imagination, with its symbolic visions, glistens before the eye." Signed copies of von Heidenstam's work in any language and in any edition are extraordinarily scarce. In our experience, his signed books are among the scarcest of all those of the Nobel Prize in Literature winners. On our most recent check, the auction records revealed no signed copies of Verner von Heidenstam's works in any language appearing at auction in the past 39 years, beyond which the records do not go. A Very Good + copy of this quite notable work, SIGNED BY VERNER VON HEIDENSTAM. QUITE SCARCE TO RARE.

        The Great Gatsby

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons,, 1925. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt and to upper board in blind, top edge trimmed others uncut. With the dust jacket. Housed in a dark green quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Foxing to page edges and the first and last gatherings, mild browning to the endpapers but an especially bright copy, tight and square in the slightly chipped dust jacket with a little professional repair. The folds have been internally strengthened and several tears repaired with retouching to the creases and rubbing. A very attractive copy; the brightness of the blue is especially good. First edition, first printing, first state of the text, first issue dust jacket. The copy is the correct first printing, with "chatter" on p. 60, line 16, "northern" on p. 119, line 22, "it's" on p. 165, line 16, "away" on p. 165, line 29, "sick in tired" on p. 205, lines 9-10, and "Union Street station" on p. 211, lines 7-8; the jacket is the first printing, with lowercase "j" in "jay Gatsby" on the back at line 14 hand-corrected in ink. An excellent example of the famous dust jacket designed by Francis Cugat (1893-1981). Charles Scribner III ("Celestial Eyes - from Metamorphosis to Masterpiece") argues that not only is the jacket recognised as the most eloquent in American literary history, but that Cugat's artwork demonstrably had an effect on Fitzgerald's evolution of his literary masterpiece, as the author responded to sketches and artwork shown to him before the book was complete, a perhaps unique occurrence in literary history. Fitzgerald wrote to his publisher sometime in August 1924 from France: "For Christ's sake don't give anyone that jacket you're saving for me. I've written it into the book." Though artistically superb, the jacket included a misprint on the back panel that required hand-correction and it was left a little taller than the book itself. As a consequence almost all of the small number of examples that do survive have wear of some description at the edges.

Illustrated with wood engravings by Eric Gill for June, July, August, and December, and by David Jones for April and October.

This is also presumed to be the first separate printing of "Family before Crucifix," the engraving for October, after the block was cut in two. This large devotional calendar includes quotations from St. Thomas Aquinas for each day of the month. Housed in a full navy cloth binding, gilt-titled to spine. Some chipping to title page and corner of January, else a fine example of this fragile and ephemeral item. Only one institutional copy recorded, and not seen by Cleverdon. Exceedingly rare.

        Typed Letter Signed, one page on "Faber and Faber Ltd., Publishers" letterhead, London, September 8, 1962

      T.S. Eliot writes on Faber and Faber letterhead as a director of the firm. In 1925 he became director and literary advisor when the firm was Faber & Gwyer. In 1929 Geoffrey Faber took over the firm and it became Faber and Faber. Eliot's "Poems 1909-1925" was one of the original titles published by Faber. Eliot remained as director of Faber for some 40 years. To Mr. Martin Turner of Buckinghamshire. At the time of this letter, Mr. Turner (b.1948) was a 14-year old student at the Royal Grammar School, High Wycombe. Most interesting to note is that around 1915 T.S. Eliot, prior to working in the banking world and prior to his long tenure at Faber and Faber, taught briefly at the Royal Grammar School, High Wycombe. It is no doubt this connection that allowed Eliot to feel that he should comment on the young man's poetry. T.S. Eliot notes that he is breaking his "rule of never commenting on poems submitted" to him for his "criticism and encouragement" and comments on Mr. Turner's poems. Martin Turner, who, as an adult, became a prominent psychologist, also published two books on poetry, one, "Trespasses," was published by Faber and Faber in 1992 and the other, "the Deer of Tamnies," published in 2006 [see Mr. Turner's blog at]. Eliot comments, "If you want to write poetry... train your ear in rhythms and practice strict forms of verse...." He imparts his wisdom on free verse suggesting that a good rule is to "learn and practice the rules, and wait till you are proficient in the rules before you break them." After his signature, "T.S. Eliot," he writes, "I am interested by the quotation from Julius Caesar. I don't think that this was at the back of my mind. There is a poem of Kipling's... and a story by William Morris... titles remain fixed in my memory." Eliot is referring to the title of one of his poems, "The Hollow Men," published in 1925. [A wikipedia listing for this poem cites "Eliot, T.S. Inventions of the March Hare: Poems 1909-1917 (Harcourt, 1997), pp. 395] Christopher Ricks, the editor, cited a letter dated 10 January 1935 to the "Times Literary Supplement" stating "Eliot wrote that he produced the title 'The Hollow Men' by combining the titles of the romance 'The Hollow Land' by William Morris with the poem 'The Broken Men' by Rudyard Kipling but it is possible that this is one of Eliot's many constructed allusions, and that the title originates more transparently from Shakespeare's 'Julius Caesar'...." It seems from this letter to Martin Turner that this is not the case. This letter appears to be unpublished.

        Zwei weibliche Akte.

      - Feder in Blaugrau, grün und gelb aquarelliert, auf chamoisfarbenem Velin, links unten monogrammiert „DMJ". 15,3:12,6 cm. Während ihres Aufenthalts in Frankreich entwickelte die Künstlerin eine lichte, helle, ganz auf Pastelltönen aufgebaute Farbpalette. Auch unser Blatt ist in diesem Sinne aufgefaßt und könnte somit während oder kurz nach dieser Reise um 1925 entstanden sein. Die früh verstorbene Malerin und Graphikerin Dorothea Maetzel-Johannsen erlitt durch eine Gelenkrheumatismus-Erkrankung als Kind ein Herzleiden. 1903-1907 bildete sie sich an der Gewerbeschule Hamburg mit dem Abschluß als Zeichenlehrerin aus. Anschließend war sie an der Städtischen Mädchenschule in Schleswig tätig. 1910 heiratete sie den Architekten, Maler und Graphiker E. Maetzel (1877-1955). In den folgenden Jahren hielt sie sich wiederholt in Berlin auf. Dort 1918 kurze Ausbildung bei L. Corinth (1858-1924) und Umzug nach Hamburg, wo sie sich gemeinsam mit ihrem Mann an der Gründung der Hamburgischen Sezession beteiligte. 1923 erhielt sie durch Gustav Pauli, dem Direktor der Hamburger Kunsthalle, den Auftrag, vier große Wandbilder für den Vorraum zum großen Vortragssaal der Kunsthalle zu gestalten. 1925 fast halbjährige Reise nach Paris und Chartres sowie 1929 nach Kassel, wo sie sich durch die Behandlung bei einem Arzt eine Besserung ihres Herzleidens versprach, und September 1929 Visby auf Gotland. Jedoch verstarb sie nur wenige Monate später im Alter von erst 44 Jahren an Herzschwäche. Ihre Hauptthemen waren Landschaften, Akte, figürliche Darstellungen und Stilleben. Stilistisch war sie dem Expressionismus verpflichtet, darüber hinaus hatten P. Cézanne (1839-1906), die Fauvisten und Kubisten, auch O. Redon (1840-1916) Vorbildcharakter.

        Mrs. Dalloway

      London: Published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press, 1925 First edition, first printing. One of 2,000 copies. Publisher's deep rust cloth, lettered in gilt. Near fine, with some light wear and rubbing to the extremities, very minor toning to the spine, former owner's 1925 inscription to the front free endpaper, bright and clean interior. Overall, a lovely copy of Woolf's fourth novel. Kirkpatrick A9a, Woolmer 82. One of the author's best known novels, Mrs. Dalloway tells the story of Clarissa Dalloway as she prepares to host a high-society party. The text is a compilation of two of Woolf's short stories "Mrs. Dalloway in Bond Street" and "The Prime Minister." A stream of consciousness narrative, Mrs. Dalloway follows the protagonist from her decision to "buy the flowers herself" at the start of the day through the completion of her party in the evening. Throughout the novel, Woolf explores the impact of mental illness on daily life, both in Mrs. Dalloway, who reveals that she is being treated for depression, and a second leading character, Septimus Warren Smith, a WWI veteran suffering from PTSD who chooses to commit suicide rather than face involuntary commitment to a psychiatric hospital. Like many of Woolf's novels, the text is centered on philosophy and perception rather than action sequences and dialogue; John W. Crawford agrees in his New York Times Review that "One day in the life of Clarissa Dalloway… is the complete story of Mrs. Woolf's new novel, yet she contrives to enmesh all the inflections of Mrs. Dalloway's personality, and many of the implications of modern civilization, in the account of those twenty-four hours.". 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine.
