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

      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).

        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.

Comprised of two intersecting narratives -- that of society woman Clarissa Dalloway as she prepares to host a party and of shell-shocked World War I veteran Septimus Warren Smith --Woolf's novel is a high mark of modernist fiction. "Woolf maintained that her generation had to break the mold of the novel in order to speak of the radically changed world around them [and] Mrs. Dalloway did break the mold ... It established her as a powerful force in the British Modernist literary scene" (Miller, Masterpieces of British Modernism, p. 153). Kirkpatrick A9a; Woolmer 82

        Archive of London Artist, Norman Walker James, Featuring a Notable Project Undertaken for Belgian Royalty, a Historic Emblem of the Kingsbury Parade of Shops in London.

      London: Ypres, circa 1925-1945., 1925. Archive of London Artist, featuring a tribute to king of Belgium; comprises 5 published book dustjackets for notable authors, 2 bookplate designs, 11 heraldic arms of the British monarchy and the Royal Armed Forces, 30 hand-drawn and coloured Oxford coat of arms, 21 unique greeting cards, 7 photographs, and a few other items pertaining to publications and to colleges. Artworks and photographs range in size, the smallest measuring approximately 8 x 11 cm and the largest measuring 20 x 25 cm. With the exception of the greeting cards and bookplates, all other works are mounted to large cardstock leafs measuring approximately 29 x 35 cm. Two series of works are accompanied by typescript descriptions; one is accompanied by a facsimile letter from the College of Arms in London. The lot in very good condition, providing insight into the works of an all but forgotten London-based commercial artist who was active before and during the Second World War. Norman Walker James (1886-1963) was a commercial artist and designer established in London from about 1910-1911. He is listed as a Decorative Designer residing at a boarding house in Kensington, in the 1911 census. Although little-known today, he evidently rose to some acclaim in his trade, as he was selected to design a memorial tablet for Belgian King Albert I. Born in Leicester, he was the son of a congregational minister. The present archive consists of an artist's own retained copies of his work, which form a fascinating portfolio of a man who was notable and active, not long ago from the 1920s into at least the 1940s, and yet seems to be vanished into obscurity. His undertakings and contracts connected him to Belgian royalty, notable publishers, and administrators of renowned college institutions. Especially interesting are the items pertaining to his contribution to a memorial located in the Sint-Maartenskathedraal in Ypres [St Martin's Cathedral re-built in 1930] , including a photograph of the tablet designed by James and accompanied by his design description, two coats of arms printed true-to-size as they would be on the tablet, as well as two rare large press photographs of its unveiling on 21 May 1938. The tablet served to honour Albert I King of Belgium together with the British Armed Forces for the gift of the exquisite rose stained glass window mounted above the south transept door. James designed the nine-foot tall tablet, on which he hand painted the inscription, and which was unveiled by King Leopold III. It featured the coat of arms of Albert I, as well as the Arms of the British Army, the RAF and the Dragoon Guards. Some of James' dustjacket designs retained here include: Commodore Anson's Voyage Into the South Seas and Around the World, by Boyle T. Somerville, published in 1934; The Recollections of Sir Henry Dickens, published in 1934; The Daughters of George III, by Dorothy Margaret Stuart, published in 1939; War & Peace, by Leo Tolstoy, published in 1942 (Also with original book boards); The Heart of Jade, by Salvador de Madariaga, published in 1944. Other book and publishing related designs include: Four photographs showing the dedication leafs and front boards of a book issued by Great Britain's Postal Administration to commemorate the tricentennial anniversary of Norway's postal service and to celebrate the two nations' collaboration in a Universal Postal Union; A front wrapper for a 1934 issue of "Paris Salon Illustrated" magazine for artists. On two leafs are mounted 30 hand coloured drawings of heraldic shields, being the Arms of the University of Oxford, and twenty-nine of its colleges or halls, some examples of which include Pembroke College, St. John's College, Jesus College, Queens College, Magdalen College, and Campion Hall. A ticket of R. P. Gossop Limited stamped "Norman James" reveals a connection to the agency. [Reginald Percy Gossop (1876-1951) was a commercial artist specializing in graphic and landscape art, and is best remembered for designing posters for the Underground Group from 1925 to 1932. He started an agency for artists circa 1920. He studied at Birkbeck College in London, then at the Hammersmith School of Art.]. Manuscript.

        Autograph Manuscript, being a complete draft of his short story "A Little Boy Lost," with a partial Typescript on the verso of his short story "The Poor Man"

      np, 1925. 12 pp., written on rectos only, corrected in holograph throughout. Versos with typescript of part of the story "The Poor Man." Editorial dockets ("2926 words" etc.) to first page. 4to. Loose sheets, staple holes at upper corners, some wrinkling at margins. In a crimson cloth chemise lettered in gilt. 12 pp., written on rectos only, corrected in holograph throughout. Versos with typescript of part of the story "The Poor Man." Editorial dockets ("2926 words" etc.) to first page. 4to. An early draft - likely the first - of one of Coppard's finest short stories, "A Little Boy Lost." The story is about Tom and Eva Grieve, two English farm laborers, and their attempts over his lifetime to interest their beloved but disengaged son David in some kind of activity. After winning a promising apprenticeship with an engineer, David suffers an illness and becomes confined to his bed and remains there into adulthood, his mother treating him with a daily spoonful of brandy. His one attempt to rouse himself and integrate into village life results in his being carried home drunk from the pub several nights in a row. Coppard's touch for English village pathos and his ear for its dialect is on display in the story, which appeared in The Fishmonger's Fiddle and Other Tales (1925). There are numerous deletions and insertions in Coppard's hand throughout, including several attempts at a title in the upper margin on the first page ("This is my son" "Their son" "The cuckoo" "The lost") before "The Little Boy Lost" [sic] is underlined at top. On the verso of the sheets are a partial typed draft of Coppard's short story "The Poor Man," paginated 18-29.

        Pastoralki [Pastorals]. Drzeworyty Tadeusza Makowskiego

      Paris: Polskie Towarzystwo Przyjaciól Ksiezki, 1925. Quarto (26 × 21 cm). Original pictorial wrappers with a woodcut by Makowski; twelve woodcuts, of which six full- page; 34, [3] pp. Very good. Considered one of the most beautiful Polish artist books of the twentieth-century, this edition of twelve modernist Christmas carols is illustrated with striking primitivist woodcuts by Tadeusz Makowski (1882-1932), a Polish painter active in Paris. Futurist poet and painter Czyzewski (1880-1945) was one of the founders of the "Formist" group, the main avant-garde organization in Poland from 1917-22; from 1922 to 1930 he lived in Paris, where he exhibited widely. "The Pastoralki is both a modern work and at the same time one that reaches into the wealth of folk art. Its modernity finds expression in conceiving folkiness as an artistic inspiration far removed from the ethnographic folklorism; it also expresses itself in a close relationship to dadaism" (Wyka 104). One of 520 copies, this one unnumbered and unsigned. Printed on handmade laid paper by Joseph Joubert-Fournier in Auvergne. With the mark of the Polish Association of Bibliophiles to the title page, a woodcut by Konstanty Brandel. See Gronska 368. Rypson 21. KVK, OCLC show copies at British Library, UC London, Bibliotheque Nationale, and six in the United States.
