        In the Tropics

      1925 - Arthur Trevor Briscoe (1873-1943) “In the Tropics” Etching, 1923 Signed l.r.: “Arthur Briscoe” Numbered l.l. 59/75 25” x 20” framed Arthur Trevor Briscoe was a painter in oil and watercolor and etcher of marine subjects. Educated at Shrewsbury School, Arthur Briscoe studied art at the Slade School of Art in London under Fred Brown and at Julian’s in Paris. After finishing his studies he bought a boat and sailed the British and north European coasts. He painted maritime scenes in oils and watercolors and also began etching. The print publisher H. C. Dickins promoted Briscoe’s etchings and they became very popular, selling out on subscription and soon making good prices at auction. The subjects of his 189 etchings, all made over a ten year period, were almost exclusively of maritime subjects, except seven which include two portraits of his friend James McBey. Arthur Briscoe also wrote on yachting subjects including Handbook on Sailing under the nom de plume of Clove Hitch. Exhibitions of his works have been held at the Royal Academy, Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colour, New English Art Club, Brook Street Art Gallery, Connell & Sons Gallery, Fine Art Society, Glasgow Institute of Fine Art, Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool, Royal Society of British Artists, Royal Society of Painter-Etchers, and Redfern Gallery. Museums owning his works include the De Young Museum in San Francisco and the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, England.

        L'Oiseau Bleu

      Special Copies of the L'Oiseau Bleu (Lepape, Georges); Maeterlinck, Maurice. L'Oiseau Bleu Feerie de Maurice Maeterlinck avec des quatorze Aquarelles originales de Georges Lepape. Paris: Le Livre, 1925. Number 10 of 25 examples on Japan hors commerce, this for the publisher Henri Barthlemy. 8vo. Original wrappers. Fine. This volume prints the libretto for the 1923 production of L'Oiseau Bleu which was staged in Paris at Theatre Cora Laparcerie in December 1922 with decor and costumes by Georges Lepape. With 14 illustrations by Lepape based on the production but re-designed for this edition and reproduced in high-quality pochoir by Saude. Bookplates of Henri Barthlemy on front pastedown. WITH-- (Lepape, Georges); Maeterlinck, Maurice. Decors et Costumes Pour L'Oiseau Bleu. Paris: Le Livre, 1927. With 61 color plates (seven are double paged folding). Copy #10 of 10 copies printed on Japon Imperial, hors commerce, this for the publisher Henri Barthlemy. 8vo. Original wrappers. Fine. This volume illustrates the full range of costume and set designs by Lepape for the 1923 production of L'Oiseau Bleu. The illustrations are printed in high-quality pochoir by Saude. Also printed is a preface by Gerard D'Houville on the Lepape production of the play. The difference in intention of the illustrator Georges Lepape is vividly evident in these two editions. The 1925 edition contains polished illustrations meant to appeal to the reader of a book. Although Lepape's compositions symbolize the action of the 1923 play, here he is foremost a book illustrator with his beautifully balanced compositions, which enliven the text. The 1927 edition, on the other hand, displays Lepape's drawings which were used to costume the actual 1923 production. Both volumes protected by a cloth and board slipcase (slight wear).

        ??????????? [Oho daihiko kinen hiko yugi Flying Game Celebrating the Great Flight to Visit Europe]

      Osaka.: Osaka Asahi Shinbun ??????? (publisher).. 1925.. Folding colour sugoroku [Japanese game], 54.4 x 79.9cm. Trifle worn at folds, carelessly folded but generally very good. This sugoroku celebrating the first flight to Europe from Japan was issued as a supplement to the December 10th, 1925 edition of the Asahi Shinbun. In 1925 Asahi Shinbun sponsored the first flight to Europe from Japan by two biplanes. This game is also notable as it includes the words ????(Chosen kaikyo or Korean Straits)for the stretch of sea between Japan and Korea, a surprising and controversial naming for a Japanese children's game where nationalist spirit is in evidence. The planes used for the flight were French Breguet 19, one named "Hatsukaze (First Wind)" ?? and the other was named "Kochikaze (East Wind)" ??. Aboard "Hatsukaze" were Abe Hiroshi (pilot) ??? and Shinohara Shunichiro (engineer) ????? and aboard "Kochikaze" were Kawachi Kazuhiko (pilot) ???? and Katagiri Shohei (engineer) ????. They took off from Tokyo on the 25th of July, 1925 and flew via Siberia to Moscow, Berlin, Paris, London, and other cities, landing in Rome, their final destination, the 27th of October, 1925. The distance they covered was 16,565 kilometres with a total flight time of 110 hours and 50 minutes. In the upper right corner of the sheet there are photographic portraits of (from right to left) Shinohara, Katagiri, Kawachi, and Abe. The two planes flying above the globe featured in the centre of the sheet are Hatsukaze (on the left) and Kochikaze (on the right). The game begins in Tokyo (lower right corner Tokyo) with the goal to reach Rome in the lower left corner. All the landing positions for the players between Tokyo and Rome are places visited. The number between each position indicates the distance between these cities. A very nice copy. .

        Les Marchandes de Plaisirs

      Paris. Limited First Edition. Wraps. Very Good Plus. Scarce collection of watercolors from a now forgotten, or unjustly overlooked, artist who incomparably captures in her paintings the l'esprit of Colette. No copies found on OCLC, notwithstanding this was a limited edition of 500 copies. (This copy is numbered 500.) Also no information on the publisher, suggesting this might have been privately printed. N.d., circa 1925. 33 by 25 cm. 2 pp. preface by Carco, a novelist regarded as the "Last Bohemian", followed by sixteen watercolors, each preceded by a tissue guard containing the title of the painting. Whether or not May Wanda herself felt a connection to Colette is immaterial; in her subject matter, her treatment of her subjects, he economy of line in her portraits, her bold application of color and finally, her straightforward, unblinking honesty, the comparison of the two is inevitable. There are a few men appearing in these paintings, but this is artwork about women, by a woman, from a woman's point-of-view. That point-of-view is both inscrutable and acerbic in its traversal of the frivolous and gaudy aspects of urban life, and there is somehow created a bond between the women living in comfort and luxury and those of meaner circumstance. Here are depicted a woman sitting alone with a glass of wine, a young ingenue on a fashionable boulevard, a flapper behind the wheel of a car, a woman at a pool, sisters in an opera box, smartly dressed women shopping, a woman at a "Bal Musette", etc. Carco likens May Wanda to Toulouse-Lautrec, and that is also an apt comparison in many ways, particularly in the weary enigmatic expressions of many of the women.

        Rupert And The Magic Toy Man [SECOND EDITION]

      Sampson Low, Marston & Co, London - From the Daily Express Rupert Little Bear Series. Undated but appears to be a Second Edition which was published in 1925, (only distinguished from the first by the lack of illustrated endpapers) with the first three 'Little Bear' Titles to the back board. Please see scans for details of description and email for additional scans. In Paper covered boards with a brown cloth spine - with a colour illustration laid on the front board with its brown bear patterned border. The illustration shows Rupert wearing blue and white talking to the Lizard who is holding a bicycle. Pages printed in blue, red or brown with one illustration to each page. Book - The book has been professionally restored with the text block re-stitched and rebound with plain pastedowns and endpapers in original illustrated paper covered boards. The boards are a little worn to corners and edges and there is some surface rubbing to the front illustration and faint residue of juvenile additions mostly to top and bottom edges. The back board is somewhat grubby and lightly marked but the illustration and lettering remain clear and bright. The text is generally clean and bright with just the very occasional light mark and patch of surface abrasion, where it appears a previous owner was rather enthusiastic when erasing pencil inscriptions. This is especially true of the last page which shows Belinda, Rupert & Susan holding hands and is slightly browned as well as showing the indentations of erased inscriptions. An attractive 2nd edition copy of this early Rupert story. Size: 9.75 inches tall by 7.5 inches. Unpaginated. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 201-750 grams. Category: Fiction; Children. Inventory No: 5952. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Jugged Journalism

      London: Herbert Jenkins,, 1925. Octavo. Original green cloth, title to boards and spine in black. With the pictorial dust jacket. With 32 illustrations by George Morrow. Mild partial browning to the endpapers, spine just leaning a little but an excellent copy in the slightly nicked and tanned dust jacket. First edition, first impression. Anthony Berkeley Cox wrote numerous and particularly highly regarded works of detective fiction under two pen names: as Anthony Berkeley, he took the British Golden Age detective novel to fresh heights, while as Francis Iles, he was a pioneer of psychological suspense fiction with a seasoning of cynical wit. The pieces gathered together here are examples of his journalistic side. Largely they are concerned with the writing of mystery and detective fiction.

        The Informer

      New York, Alfred A. Knopf,, 1925. Octavo. Original black cloth, decorations to upper board and titles to spine in pink, yellow and blue. With the pictorial dust jacket. Housed in a black cloth drop down box with multicolored morocco onlay after the design on the dust jacket. A somewhat disreputable copy, traces of water to boards, and rear endpapers, rear hinge cracked, spine a little dull but nevertheless far better than "good" in tanned and lightly chipped, internally repaired dust jacket. First American Edition, First Printing. With the author's signed full page presentation inscription to the actor and screenwriter Louis Sherwin. Sherwin is remembered for his contemptuous comment about Hollywood, "They know only one word of more than one syllable here and that word is 'fillum'". Ironically, that's how O'Flaherty would have pronounced it too (the characteristic epenthesis apparently retained from the Gaelic). O'Flaherty worked in Hollywood, but The Informer was his first thriller, which proved his greatest popular success. The novel was filmed for the first time in 1929 and again by John Ford in 1935 with Victor MacLaglen in the title role.
