        New Preface to "The Life and Confessions of Oscar Wilde"

      London: The Fortune Press,, 1925 & 1927. First and Second editions. 2 works, octavo. Vol. I: Original black cloth, printed paper label to front board. Vol. II: Original black cloth-backed black boards, titles to front board gilt. Housed in a custom black solander box. Spine ends and tips a little worn, Vol. II spine cracked but holding, internally fresh. An excellent set. First and second editions, with the first edition inscribed by Douglas on the front free endpaper to his son, "Raymond Douglas, from his affect. father, Xmas, 1925." In 1925, when Harris was trying to win over Lord Alfred Douglas so he could publish his biography of Oscar Wilde in England, he persuaded Douglas that Robert Ross was to blame for the passages to which Douglas objected. Harris and Douglas therefore collaborated on a new preface to the book, designed to be included in any future editions of Harris's biography, and thus satisfy Douglas that the book was no longer libellous to him. However, the preliminary version of the preface, of which Douglas had approved, was then revised by Harris. Outraged, Douglas had the original preface published separately here, including Harris's contributions, without his permission.

        Once on a Time

      London, Hodder and Stoughton Ltd. 1925, 1925. First Charles Robinson Edition, 8vo. Publisher's light blue decorative cloth, titles and decoration in gilt to spine with added gilt and black illustration to front board; illustrated endpapers. Colourful pictorial dust-jacket. Beautiful detailed illustrations throughout by Charles Robinson, including title page and colour frontispiece. Binding bright. Slight fading to spine of dust jacket frayed to spine tips and corners, creased along extremities with a couple of small closed tears, a little marking to back panel. A lovely copy indeed. Ostensibly a typical fairytale, telling the story of a war between the kingdoms of Euralia and Barodia and the political shenanigans which take place in Euralia in the king's absence. The book is notable for it's believable and fallable characters such asa princess who is far from helpless; a prince who is pompous and vain; an enchantment which is almost entirely humorous; a villain who is not entirely villainous; a good king who isn't always good; an evil king who isn't always evil, and so on.

The Chansons de plein air iwere published by Leduc in 1935. According to Worldcat, only 2 libraries (the Bibliothèque Nationale and the Swiss National Library) possess copies of this first (and only?) edition. Not in Grove online. "Firmly rooted in the French 19th-century tradition, BüsserÂ’s symphonic and choral writing is indebted to Gounod and Saint-Saëns. He is best known, however, for his dramatic works, which betray Wagner's impact in both their form and their use of the orchestra. The influence of Debussy, whose advice Büsser sought over the opera that became his most successful, Colomba (c1902–10), is also evident in certain harmonic procedures and in an acute sensitivity to orchestral colour. The ballets, such as the light-hearted La ronde des saisons (1905) with its amusing descriptive touches, provide further evidence of his keen dramatic sense." Barbara L. Kelly in Grove Music Online.

        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 edition. A 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 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), married to a Very Good example of the quite scarce dust jacket (minor chipping to the spine ends together with some light rubs to the spine panel, minor loss to the front panel's upper edge, front panel separated at the spine and with a horizontal tear near the spine panel center, some loss to the rear panel's top and bottom edges) 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." Copies in the dust jacket are quite scarce and 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 in the QUITE SCARCE dust jacket, SIGNED BY VERNER VON HEIDENSTAM. QUITE SCARCE TO RARE.

        Papillons. Vingt planches en phototypie coloriées au patron donnant 81 papillons et 16 compositions décoratives

      Paris: Tolmer editeur, circa, 1925. Complete collection of 20 pochoir plates measuring 448 x 323 mm., with title-page, introductory note and list of plates housed in the original folding case with cloth ties featuring pochoir design to the front board; an excellent set. A rare and astonishingly beautiful French Art Noveau design album based on the butterflies of the world, featuring species from China, India and Asia. Eugene Alain Séguy (1889-1985) was a leading French designer of the Art Noveau and Art Deco periods who produced eleven stunning design portfolios with a range of styles and inspirations. Séguy had an acute interest in scientific study of insects, and utilised this knowledge to produce two albums on this theme including this brilliant set of butterfly designs. For Séguy, insects were both beautiful objects and wondrous mechanical creations, and formed a rich subject matter for illustration and more abstract design possibilities. In Papillons he accomplished both goals. The album features remarkably detailed and accurate depictions of butterflies from across the globe in addition to breathtaking Art Noveau abstract designs derived from the their shimmering patterns. The pochoir stencil printmaking process was ideally suited to this task, capturing the subtlety and iridescence of light playing across fluttering wings.

        The Great Gatsby

      New York: Charles Scribners, 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).

Cleveland, OH: Tropical Paint Co., [ca. 1925]. |~||~||~||~| First Edition of this scarce Jazz Age trade catalogue providing an invaluable guide for the paint colours of amusement parks, bakeries, banks, bathrooms, brick surfaces, bridges, canneries, candy manufacturers, automobiles, colleges, factories, fire hydrants, homes, kitchens, machinery, roofs, swimming pools, roofs, and much more. This detailed sales reference includes illustrations of factories, roller coasters, residences, lumber mills, schools, restaurants, and even the flatbed truck carrying the Tropical Paint cans. The original colour samples of house paints, railroad colours, flat, gloss, floor paints & stains, cement coats, and enamels for houses, automobiles, railroad cars, industrial machinery, floors, furniture, and others have remained very true. Of particular interest are the large number of glowing endorsement letters on their respective Company letterheads extolling the virtues of Tropical Paint brands. George Hascall (1852-1927) originally worked as a salesman in the oil business, then set up as a broker for the oil business in Cleveland in 1884 and launched his own oil and paint company in 1889. He took over Tropical Oil Company in 1903, which was then a very small manufacturer of oil paints and heating oil, and within a few years had vastly expanded the plant and operations, maintaining a large sales force across the country of over 40 agents, and adding to his other companies which included the Hascall Paint Company, Prairie City Oil Company, Atlantic Paint Company, and the Hascall-Smith Furniture Company. Spine rubbed else in very good condition with the samples intact.

        La Sainte Vierge'. Manuscript of an unrecorded poem, written in Jean Cocteau's hand.

      Ca 1925 - Manuscript, unpublished poem by the French author and artist Jean Cocteau, written in his hand. Cocteau, raised as a Catholic, had fallen away from the faith, but in 1925 came back to the Church, taking the sacraments for the first time during the Feast of the Sacred Heart. The symbol of the sacred or red heart was very important to Cocteau during his re- conversion, and appears in this poem ("son coeur rouge et or"). Cocteau had an opium addiction at the time, and tried to effect a cure at a French convalescent home in Villefranche-sur-Mer, where he wrote about the existence of God. He was often seen in the town in an ecstatic trance before a statue of the Virgin.Cocteau's poem concludes with a charming image of the Virgin Mary and the gift of her red and gold heart to little girls: "La Sainte Vierge se penche elle donne- a chaque petite fille son coeur rouge et or- livre de Prix"With the original sales receipt from ABAA dealer Emily Driscoll Autographs and Manuscripts, New York, NY. Dated 1957, identifying the poem as item 132 from Catalog #16. The receipt prices the poem at $10, an appropriate price at the time.Jean Cocteau (1889-1963) was a French poet, novelist, playwright, visual artist, and film director, considered one of the most creative, diversified artists of the twentieth century.The poem written in ink on watermarked tissue paper, not folded, evenly toned, perfectly legible. 8 x 10 1/2". The dealer sales receipt with slight loss at top edge, slightly marked, 8 1/2 x 7". Poem not recorded in OCLC.

Beal was also curator of the college's museum and director of the Michigan state Forestry Commission. Beal and Professor Rolla C. Arpenter also created "Collegeville" which later became East Lansing. Ray Stannard Baker- who married Beal's daughter, Jessie- was a famous American journalist who also wrote under the pen-name David Grayson.

        Wild Harvest

      NY: D. Appleton. 1925. The Cherokee author's first book. One of the two most important debuts of modern Native American writers, the other being D'Arcy McNickle's book The Surrounded, in 1936. This one, however, preceding McNickle's book as it does by over a decade, may rightfully be called the first Native American novel of the modern era. Signed by Oskison. A small amount of foxing to the book, and some general, modest signs of wear to the cloth; a very good copy, lacking the scarce dust jacket. A landmark volume, seldom encountered at all, let alone signed. First Edition. Hardcover.

        In the Land of the Shah - Being a Series of Announcements Issued by the British Petroleum Co. Ltd. from Britannic House, Moorgate, London E.C. 2

      London: British Petroleum Co. Ltd, Distributing Organisation of the Anglo Persian Oil Co. Ltd., n.d. , 1925. Folio (440 × 298 mm) Original buff printed, yapp-edged, light card wraps. 12 finely-printed monochrome lithographic plates (c. 155 × 200 mm), imposed within a "plate-mark" above descriptive text. Staples a touch rusted, a few minor splits to the edges of the wraps, a scatter of foxing throughout, but overall very good indeed. First and only edition, extremely uncommon, no other copies traced either institutionally or commercially. Evidently these "announcements" were in fact rather grand advertisements for BP, which were gathered together and presented even more grandly still. Publication was noted at the time in the "Wheels of Industry" column of The Commercial Motor, the journal of the commercial vehicle industry; "An extremely beautiful production entitled "In the Land of the Shah" has been issued by the British Petroleum Co., Ltd. which is the distributing organisation of the Anglo-Persian Oil Co., Ltd. The publication forms a portfolio of some of the company's announcements which have appeared in the Press, but that Statement by no means does justice to it, for the " announcements " took the form of delightful drawings of Eastern life, commerce, and customs by Christopher Clark, R.I., and they are reproduced on special paper, so that the impression given is almost that of steel engravings. Each drawing is accompanied by some interesting text. The portfolio is one of those productions that most men will take home. We believe that a copy will be sent to any reader who mentions The Commercial Motor" (The Commercial Motor, 17 November 1925). The images range from the ancient historical - "A Temple of the Fire Worshippers", "The Glories of Ancient Persia", "The Tomb of Khusru Pharviz" - to the contemporary industrial - "Transporting Pipe Line in Persia", on mule back, "150 Miles of Pipe Lines" - via picturesque travelogue - "Ferry-Boats of the Tigris", pitch waterproofed gufas, "A Persian Wedding", as described by Sir Percy Sykes, "A Land of Leisurely Travel", a heavily laden camel caravan. Evocative artwork by Christopher Clark, a British commercial artist-illustrator best remembered for his work for British Railways, often featuring scenes of British pageantry. Fascinating early piece of promotional literature for the burgeoning oil industry. Sheet of British Petroleum Company stationery with roneoed compliments message loosely inserted.
