        Kleine Beitrage zur Traumlehre (A Small Contribution to Dream Theory).

      Internationaler Psychoanalytischer Verlag, Leipzig 1925 - First edition of this collection of articles relating to the interpretation of dreams, the majority of which were previously published in periodical literature. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed and dated by the author on the front free endpaper, "Frau Margarete Rellner-Weiss mil dem Gruss des Verf. Sigm. Freud 1927 (Mrs. Margarete Rellner-Weiss with greetings from the author)." Bookplate of the recipient to the inside front panel, in near fine condition with a touch of rubbing. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional example, books signed by Freud are scarce.         Sigmund Freud published over 40 books throughout his lifetime, many on the subject of dream theory and interpretation including The Interpretation of Dreams, what most consider to be his greatest and most influential work. Throughout his works, Freud proposed that dreams were forms of "wish fulfillment", or attempts by the unconscious mind to resolve conflicts both recent and far in the recesses of dreamer's past. His Small Contribution to Dream Theory is a collection of short articles published by Freud between the years of 1913 and 1923, which includes Fairy Tale Material of Dreams, A Dream as Means of Proof, Dream and Telepathy, Notes Upon the Theory and Practice of Dream Interpretation, The Limits of Dream Interpretation, The Ethical Responsibility for the Contents of Dreams, and The Occult Significance of Dreams.

        Mathematical Investigations in the Theory of Value and Prices.

      New Haven: Yale University Press,, 1925. Octavo. Original black cloth, spine and front board lettered in gilt. 2 photographic frontispieces and numerous diagrams to the text. Spine faded, ends and corners bruised, light toning to margins, otherwise a bright copy. Royal Statistical Society stamps to front free endpaper and title page, dated 10 February 1926. First edition in book form, first impression, publisher's presentation copy, of the "startlingly original PhD thesis" (Blaug) which expounds the monetary theories for which Fisher became famous and established his international reputation. This is a photo-engraved reprint of Fisher's doctoral work, first published in the Transactions of the Connecticut Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1892. "Fisher's aim in his Mathematical Investigations was to present a general mathematical model of the determination of value and prices. He claimed to have specified the equations of general economic equilibrium for the case of independent goods (chapter 4, sec. 10), although the only mathematical economist whose work he had consulted was Jevons. With commendable honesty he recognizes the priority of Walras's Eléments d'économie politique pure (1874) as far as the equations of the general equilibrium are concerned and likewise the priority of Edgeworth's Mathematical Psychics (1881) as regards the concept of utility surfaces. It appears that, although only a student, Fisher had independently developed a theory of general economic equilibrium that was identical to part of Walras's and included the concept of the indifference surface, one of the fundamental bases of modern economic theory" (IESS V, pp. 476-7). This copy is inscribed, "From the Publishers (Humphrey Milford) Price 4/6 net" on the front free endpaper. Milford (1877–1952) was the head of the London office of Oxford University Press and his name "became a familiar mark on Oxford books, distinguishing London volumes from the Clarendon Press imprint that appeared on works which the delegates supervised at Oxford" (ODNB). As such, his name appears on the title page of this copy.

        OLD MAN WITH PIPE

      , 1925. 1925. Ulmann, Doris. Unique oil pigment print photograph, image size 8 x 6 in. [20.3 x 15.2 cm.] tipped to art paper 11 x 14 inches. Presented in a 16 x 20 inch archival window-mat. Slight chipping at the bottom blank corners of the photographic stock with no loss of the image; else fine condition. Doris Ulmann (1882-1934), although prolific, the majority of her photographs are unique prints and of these, most are left unsigned. From 1917 through 1925, Doris Ulmann created approximately 150 oil pigment prints. Given the extreme difficulty in obtaining success with this process, the prints are unique monotypes. The subtle details visible in the shadows of this print exhibit a technical mastery of both the exposure and of the pigment process. For a detailed description of Ulmann's oil print process and method of presentation, see p. 276 -77 of Philip Walker Jacobs' excellent THE LIFE AND PHOTOGRAPHY OF DORIS ULMANN. The University of Kentucky Press, 2001.

        The Life of Sir William Osler. [2 volumes].

      Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1925. Oxford:: Clarendon Press, 1925., 1925. Two volumes. Thick 8vo. xiii, [3], 686; x, [2], 728 pp. Frontis. portraits, 42 illustrations, indices. Navy blue gilt-stamped cloth; rubbed. Both volumes with ownership signature of D. C. Hoffman, 1926. Ink inscription, "Very truly yours Harvey Cushing." INSCRIBED BY HARVEY CUSHING. Additional ink ownership signature of Mark B. Adams, October, 1973. First edition, second impression. THIS IS A RARE COPY OF THE HIGHLY RESPECTED AND AWARDED BIOGRAPHY OF SIR WILLIAM OSLER WITH THE ORIGINAL INSCRIPTION AND SIGNATURE OF HARVEY CUSHING. Harvey Cushing is often referred to as the father of neurosurgery. "Through his work on the pituitary gland, Cushing was also one of the founders of endocrinology. A well-read man who wrote a phenomenal amount throughout his long career (winning a Pulitzer Prize in 1926 for his hagiography of Sir William Osler), Cushing was also a noted bibliophile, a decent amateur medical historian, and a war hero" (Clarkfield, 2006, NEJM, Vol. 354, p. 534). His greatest contribution to medicine, however, may be his introduction of the Riva-Rocci sphygmomanometer to the United States, and his introduction of blood pressure as a vital sign. His interest in William Osler was personal. In World War I he treated Osler's son, Edward, who did not survive the war. PROVENANCE: Donald C. Hoffman, M.D., was with the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, and Assistant in Medicine, Boston City Hospital. He wrote (or co-wrote) various research papers including, "The Electric Charge of Mosaic Virus Particles" (1930), "The Influence of Testicle Extract on the Intradermal Spread of Injected Fluids and Particles" (1930), "Properties of the Causative Agent of a Chicken Tumor," (1932). Mark B. Adams (1947-2007) "A graduate of Reed College and the University of Oregon Medical School, Dr. Adams interned at the Medical College of Wisconsin in General Surgery and earned a Master's degree in Microbiology from that institution during his surgical residency. He quickly rose through the ranks of the Department of Surgery after joining the division of Transplantation in 1978, reaching full professor in 1989 and subsequently Acting Chair, Vice Chair and Chair. He held a variety of committee positions within UNOS and the ASTS, including chair of the ASTS Ethics committee" (Johnson, 2007, "In Memoriam Mark B. Adams M.D. M.S. F.A.C.S.", American Journal of Transplantation, Vol. 7, p. 2246).

        [Photo Album]: Lincoln Highway Construction

      Indiana and Kentucky, 1925. Fine. Small oblong octavo. Measuring 8" x 6.5". String-tied with papercovered boards with "Photographs" inside an outline of a flag in gilt on the front. Contents include 54 tipped in gelatin silver photographs and 19 loose photos laid-in. Each measures2.75" x 4.5", and almost all are captioned under the image on a tipped on piece of paper or, in the case of the laid-in images, on their back. The album is about fine with light wear at the edges; internal photographs are fine.This album documents the construction of the Lincoln Highway across the state of Indiana and its junction with the Dixie Highway. The Lincoln Highway was one of the first transcontinental automobile highways in the United States. It was conceived in 1912 by an Indiana businessman, Carl G. Fisher, and formally dedicated October 31, 1913. It ran coast-to-coast from New York City's Times Square to San Francisco's Lincoln Park. Initially, less than half of the route was paved. In an effort to provide the public with a vision of the future, Fisher obtained sponsorship from U. S. Rubber Company to build an "Ideal Section" of roadway between Dyer and Schererville in Lake County, Indiana that had concrete roadbeds, wide banked curves with guard rails, no crossings, and a parallel pedestrian footpath. Fischer also initiated the construction of the Dixie Highway which actually was a series of north-south roads that linked northern Michigan and Chicago with Miami, Florida.The mounted photos in this album are of work on the Lincoln highway and its junction with the Dixie Highway showing the work crew, crew lodging, steamrollers, tractors, tar-spreading trucks, trucks dumping stone, stone-spreading by hand, leveling, loading of tar and stone into company trucks from railcars, vehicles and equipment stuck in sand and mud, and finished roadway including the Ideal Section. The 19 laid-in photographs show roadwork near Bargetown, Burnside, Harrodsburg, Livingston, and Stanford, Kentucky. These images are similar to the Lincoln Highway photos but also include a steam shovel, mule team, and three African-American boys, who according to a caption entertained the work crew with Stephen Foster songs. An important visual history of the first major transcontinental road construction project in the United States from the viewpoint of one of the workers.

The etchings were printed by Porcabeuf, the text by the Imprimerie Nationale, Paul Gallimard and Pierre Dauze were responsible for the production. The novel by E. Bourges (1852-1925) is an early document of the Wagner cult not only for its subject matter; even the composition follows Wagner's style, using the technique of the "leitmotiv". It was first published in 1884, and was hailed as a masterpiece; Cocteau still called it an "oeuvre magnifique" in 1923. The Swiss artist Richard Ranft (1862-1931), who illustrated the novel first, catches the "décadence" perfectly. - Fine copy, bound by the famous Belgian bookbinder Weckesser. - Monod 1779; Vollmer IV, 17.

        John Kemp's Wager - A Ballad Opera

      Basil Blackwell, Oxford., 1925. First edition. The British Drama League Library of Modern British Drama No. 11. Octavo. pp xvi, 75. Number 91 of 100 copies printed on Kelmscott hand-made paper and signed by the author. Parchment backed decorated paper boards. A five-act play preceded by a three page Author's Note. Pasted over the front endpapers is a Typed Letter Signed, dated 29th November 1928, on headed notepaper, from the literary agents James B. Pinker & Sons to the author: ''I have just heard from New York that they have succeeded in getting five dollars a performance out of the people who did 'John Kemp's Wager'. The performances were only for children and the promoters declared they lost money on them so Mr. Eric Pinker thought it best to agree to this amount...''. The author has written on the letter: ''This is a lie for a start [i.e. that the performances were only for children]. I suppose 1/2 a loaf is better than no bread but they certainly did not lose from the performance to judge from accounts I received of the reception. Eric Pinker should have consulted me before accepting I think. R.G.''Covers a little marked and rubbed at the edges. Bottom corners of covers slightly bumped. Very good.

        A Collection of Books from the Library of Italian Futurist Artist Pietro Lazzari, Many Featuring Original Illustrations

      Near Fine/Near Fine. A collection of 38 books from the library of Pietro Lazzari, with more than half featuring original drawings and nearly all Signed by the artist. Lazzari was born in Rome and joined the Italian Futurist movement after World War I. With the rise of Fascism Lazzari left Italy for New York in 1925, where he later shared studio space with Mark Rothko. He was one of only nine other European artists who contributed to an important exhibition at the "New Gallery" that included Pablo Picasso, Pascin, and Modigliani. During the Great Depression Lazzari was commissioned by the WPA for many mural paintings and sculptures. He was awarded a Fullbright and taught at the Corcoran School of Art and elsewhere. Today his sculpture, paintings and drawings are found in such major collections as the Whitney Museum of American Art, Art Institute of Chicago, Washington Gallery of Modern Art, the Smithsonian Institution, Miami Museum of Modern Art, Georgetown University and the San Francisco Museums of Fine Art.The books in the collection range from art history that influenced the artist, such as works on Bosch and Asian Art, to more far-flung inspirations such as Life Under the Microscope which is filled with doodles and full drawings reminiscent of the scientific images included. Others relate to more general interests in Lazzari's life, but were employed as handy sketchbooks to record emerging ideas. Many of the drawings are dated and often timed to the exact hour they were composed. The dates range from the 1940s to shortly before Lazzari's death in 1979. In all, 24 of the works feature original artwork, while 14 feature his distinctive signature. Together they enlarge our understanding of an important Italian-American artist as well as presenting some often quite accomplished works never seen before.Compete list below, all references to signatures and drawings are to those in Lazzari's hand:BALDASS, Ludwig Von.

        DE CIVITATE DEI CONTRA PAGANOS LIBRI XXII

      Ad Monachos [Toelz]: Bremer Press, 1925. No. CCCIII OF 385 COPIES. A perfect example of the connection between the early printers and the later fine editions they inspired, this stately version of Saint Augustine's "City of God," among the most popular titles of the incunabular era, was printed by one of the major Continental private presses in a style very like that of the 15th century. Augustine's celebrated "City of God," is a great intellectually sprawling defense of Christianity against the charge that it brought about the collapse of Rome in the fifth century. Saint Augustine (354-430) is counted second only to the Bible as the foundation of Catholic and Protestant belief, and the strength and endurance of his inspiration can hardly be overstated. "Century for the Century" considers this "magnificently printed work" to be "among the most beautiful" issued by the Bremer Press, founded in 1911 by Willy Wiegand (1884-1961) and others, and active until just before World War II. Cave flatly declares that the Bremer Press had an influence that "was probably greater and longer lasting than that of any of the other fine presses." It certainly is universally considered the most successful and influential of the German private presses, and Ransom says that "perhaps no other organization, private or public, has attempted closer coordination and interrelation of scholarship, type design, and book design." Following the typographic lead of Cobden-Sanderson and Emery Walker, the press "was very much in the grand tradition; a few good, special typefaces were cut and used with magnificent effect in large format editions of Homer, Dante, Tacitus, the Luther Bible, and similar books." (Cave) As with the Doves volumes, ornament (except for initials) was eschewed, and the considerable success enjoyed by Bremer resided elsewhere--with typography both refined and innovative, with the highest quality of materials used, and with meticulous presswork. In addition to the typefaces cut by Wiegand for exclusive use at his press, new titles and initials were designed and cut for almost every production. The typeface here is called the Bremer Antiqua, a rounded, graceful font reminiscent of the Venetian Renaissance.. 363 x 250 mm. (14 1/4 x 9 3/4"). 2 p.l., 607, [47] pp. Edited by Dr. Carl Weyman, with a critical appendix. No. CCCIII OF 385 COPIES. Original holland-backed blue paper boards, paper label on spine. With original (slightly soiled and marked) blue paper chemise. Woodcut initials created by Anna Simons on 22 leaves. A Century for the Century 14. Spine label uniformly mellowed from its original brighter color, but AN IMMACULATE COPY, the text entirely clean, fresh, and bright, and in a virtually unworn binding.
