        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.

        Two Autograph Letters, Signed, to collector Norman James of Baltimore, Maryland, March 30 and April 17, [1925], discussing sporting books and prints, The Natural History of the Ducks, and Phillips' idea for a bibliography of American sporting books

      Wenham, Massachusetts, march 30 and april 17, [1925]. 8vo. 1-1/2 pp.; 1 p., pen and ink on Windyknob stationery. Old folds. Fine . To the noted collector of sporting and color-plate books Norman James, of 300 Goodwood Road, Roland Park (see catalogues of his library, sold at Anderson Galleries, November13-23, 1928). From the first letter, dated March 30: "You gave me a wonderful afternoon yesterday and I shall long remember your house and that view - I'm looking over my few prints (about 38) and find the following which I don't remember seeing with you, although most likely you have them stowed away among those we didn't have time for: 'Snipes' drawn by J. Herring - (no date but looks very old); Wild Duck Shooting - A Good Day's Sport' N. Currier 1854 - a very fine one and I've never seen it except this one copy (large) Two figures by L. O. Earll, Pub by A.C. Zink 1880. Man with new breach loader talking to old market hunter with muzzle loader & ducks on back. "Another thing I'd like to see would be a catalogue of the old American books on sport. [Charles] Sheldon and you also would have about all of these, and I have a fair lot, but mine are more along old Am. books on birds and mammals. Guess you think I'm catalogue mad & think I will be by the time I get out the bibliog. for the duck book. - Hope to get away for west end of Alaska Penin in early May." For the privately distributed sets of his monumental Natural History of the Ducks, a finely illustrated work in four volumes, Phillips issued a separately printed Bibliography in an edition of 75 copies. The second letter, dated April 17, begins "I'm proud to think I have one or two American prints that you have not. The only worth while one is the large duck shooting picture -" Phillips also mentions The Natural History of the Ducks: "If you think of any duck 'cranks' who would be worth circularizing for my duck book, I wish you'd let me know -." Phillips did indeed pursue his idea for a catalogue: his Bibliography of American Sporting Books drew upon the library of Charles Sheldon and was published in 1930. It remains an essential reference

        A Pair of Egyptian Watercolour Views - The Pyramids at Giza (Two Egyptians on Camels in the Foreground) - Environs of Cairo (Three Egyptians, two on Camels in the Foreground)- Blind Stamped Lehnert & Landrock Cairo on Mounts].

      1925 - Ca. 1925. Watercolours each ca. 22x31 cm (8 ½ x 12 in). Mounted on card, the mounts with some minor mild staining. The watercolour are both in very good condition. "Lehnert wishe[d] to have a new start in Tunis but Landrock prefer[ed] Cairo. The discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamen gave the decisive push to establish their new venture in Egypt., On 4 October 1924 Ernst and Emilie Landrock, Kurt Lambelet (Emilie's 19 year old son), as well as Mrs. Lehnert and her daughter Eliane reached the port of Alexandria, Egypt. At first, Landrock and Lehnert started a wholesale business in Cairo, but they soon decided to open a retail shop between the Continental and Shepherds hotels, both managed by Swiss directors. Lehnert works conscientiously from Alexandria to Abu Simbel. He includes Palestine in his field of work. But Lehnert is first of all a portraitist and Egyptians dislike to be photographed. Lehnert is condemned to photograph "old stones," their clients being mostly foreigners., The partnership between Ernst Landrock and his friend and photographer Rudolf Lehnert lasted another six years. Lehnert, who had fallen in love with Tunisia, wanted to return to the country which so inspired him. So after withdrawing from his partnership with Landrock, he travelled back to Tunis on 15 June 1930" (Lehnert and Landrock Bookshop and Art Gallery online).

        LETTERS FROM A GLOBETROTTER -- Written for Members of the Round-the-World Society: A collection of stencilled letters, mailed by the author, with original postage stamps.

      NY: Round-the-World Society, 1925. First Edition. Leatherette. Very Good. Approx 170pp; frontispiece and one other sketch by the author, foldout map, 11 b&w plates from photographs; 68 original foreign-postage stamps affixed to letters with integral address panels. Contains 43 letters from the Arctic, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, etc. Raymond's letters are rich in anecdotes, conversation dialog, and local color. The first 12 letters are all datelined in the Arctic, and were saved for mailing from Belgium later. Next are eight letters from Germany, France, and Monaco. Then, 20 letters mailed from North Africa; and finally, three from Spain. Each of the 43 letters comprises three stenciled pages and the address panel. All of the letters are addressed to Andrew P. Howarth, Oxford, Mass., USA. Each had been folded for mailing, then opened by the subscriber and put into this post-and-screw binding of black leatherette over flexible boards. A picture and title on the cover are either stamped in blind or worn-away gilt; covers are dusted inside and out, text is mostly clean. 9" x 6.25 Raymond created the Round-the-World Society and attracted subscribers to whom he would send his globetrotting letters. Beginning with the 12 Arctic letters, EDR records his travels by ship to Spitzbergen, with descriptions of the North Cape, Barents Sea, Greenland Sea, Bear Island, VanPost glacier, Amundsen Memorial at King's Bay, through Virgo Bay, and his finding the "remains of [Swedish aviator] Andree's Balloon Expedition," including gas tanks, ropes, personal belongings, etc., all of which he "leaves...undisturbed as I found them" on the shore of Virgo Bay. One letter, titled "A Great Experiment in the Arctic," describes attempts by Westerners to exploit the mineral wealth of Spitzbergen, even though "Eskimos in Greenland and Lapps in Finland...are inefficient laborers...[so] a new race of white men able to inhabit this polar archipelago" is needed to work the mines. He describes coal mining at Longyear City, where "nearly all the miners are single" and only 20 women are there, one of whom gives birth to "the first member of a possible new race: the White Arctics." ~~ The 20 letters from North Africa begin with EDR's arrival in Tunis after a stormy voyage; the ruins of Carthage; vignettes of local Muslim life in the Old Quarter; a 26-hour train trip to Algiers; visits to the Kasbah and feasts with a sheik; "Monkey Land" (Ruisseau de Signes); falcon-hunting on horseback with a sheik; &c. Leaving Algiers, Raymond travels the 2,000 miles to Morocco in a "large touring car" ; visits Oudjda, Fez, and the domain of Abd-el-Krim; the Riffs demand a ransom from the Christian who has defiled a saint's tomb by getting near to it; dinner at a campfire ends in a hail of bullets as a "band of Riffians" swarms uphill; &c. The letters from Belgium, Germany, France and Spain have interesting content as well. ~~ [WorldCat locates only the SUNY-Buffalo holding of this title.]

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED (ALS) to "Aonian Endymion" [Samuel Loveman] on both sides of letter-size sheet, dated "Woden's-Day" n.y. [1926?], signed "Theobaldus Senex."

      Faint fold creases, matching 52 mm tears at top and bottom edges. (incurred when sheet was folded), 7-mm-square nick at bottom edge. (not affecting text), otherwise very good to near fine.. "A pleasant, relaxed letter about minor matters and mutual acquaintances, written in Lovecraft's sardonically inflated style, before the Depression - - and the lessons learned by revising other people's work -- beat leanness and sincerity into his style. Among the standard Lovecraftian tropes found here (Anglophilia, praising the sights of New England, nostalgia for the Eighteenth century) he encourages Loveman in his newfound employment as a cataloger for rare book dealers Dauber & Pine in New York (thus dating this letter sometime after September 1925); Loveman, a poet of no small ability, continued in this day-job and went on to own and run the Bodley Bookshop in New York for 30 years. Lovecraft wonders how he'd fare in a similar job. 'I envy you - & sincerely wish I had the bibliophilic erudition to land one of those similar posts ...' But one suspects that his narrow, obsessive tastes and apathy about books as objects would have unsuited him for such a job. Loveman defended Lovecraft against charges of anti-Semitism by contrasting the pose he struck in his letters with the person 'as he actually was -- a charming companion, a wonderful human being, and a loyal friend.' Nevertheless, Loveman is said to have destroyed all, or almost all, his letters from HPL, and they are consequently very scarce today." - Robert Eldridge.

        KNAVE OF HEARTS. With Pictures by Maxfield Parrish

      New York: Charles Scribner&#39;s Sons, 1925. First edition and the best issue bound in cloth and oversized. Decorated with a beautiful colourplate pictorial cover, stunning pictorial endleaves and a profusion of very fine colour illustrations throughout by Maxfield Parrish. 4to, (350 x 295 mm), publisher&#146;s original black cloth with the full size pictorial colour pastedown on the upper cover, and colour illustrated endpapers. (47) pp. A handsome copy with the head and tail of the spine in very nice condition, some minor mellowing to the black cloth and pastedown and some bumping to the corners, otherwise very bright and clean and well preserved. THE FIRST EDITION OF THIS BRILLIANT ILLUSTRATED BOOK. Perhaps Parrish&#39;s best work, and certainly a very scarce book in nice condition. As Parrish himself said, "The reason I wanted to illustrate THE KNAVE OF HEARTS was on account of the bully opportunity it gives for a very good time making the pictures. Imagination could run riot, bound down by no period, just good fun and all sorts of things." Quoted in Ludwig, p. 48.<br> For sixty-five years Parrish worked in widely varied fields---book illustration, magazine illustration, posters and advertisements, paintings and murals---rendering realm of the imagination with sharp-focus realism. So well known and popular was his work F. Scott Fitzgerald , for example, described the reflection in a restaurant window as being the color of &#145;Maxfield Parrish moonlight.&#146;

        Rozpravy Aventina. List pro kulturu, umeni, kritika a zvlaste literaturu. 1925-34 (all published)

      Prague: Aventinum 1925 - Folio 48 x 32 cm, 9 annuals in 7 vols. (all published), 130, 228, 250, 398, 504, 474, 324, 72, 134 pp. A weekly and sometimes biweekly magazine which showcased all the contemporary visual arts, film, music, and literature. with greatest emphasis on the Czechoslovak world but embracing the international scene in a spectacular newspaper format. It is most renowned with the covers of the fifth year by Adolf Hoffmeister, whose caricature portraits of avant-garde luminaries both Czech and abroad have reached greatest exposure and established as cultural icons of the day, but only in the post-communist era. It is now an historical fact that interwar Prague was the most open city of the era, possibly overtaking Paris and New York as a center of discourse and exchange of ideas artistic and political. This weekly magazine included reviews of important exhibitions, interviews with artists and authors, essays on all the artists and richly illustrated with drawings, graphics and photos: a document comprehensive in scope. The contributors over the course of Rozpravy's life read like the full gazetteer of important avant-garde figures in Western and Eastern Europe. Full sets of this journal are very rare, with most libraries holding only incomplete sets. The full set is massive, weighing in at 37 lbs before shipping. Annuals 1-6 in various bindings and overall very good, 7 through 9 are loose and darkened in the center page and good to very good. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        WHITHER

      Small, Maynard and Company, Boston 1925 - The author's first book. Dawn Powell almost immediately disavowed this title, she never mentioned it in lists of her works. She later claimed that her second novel, She Walks in Beauty, was her first work. Thirty-six publishers rejected her second novel before it was accepted by Brentano¿s; perhaps this was evidence of the low quality of Whither. A very small run and copies are quite scarce. 305 pages. Lacking the rare dust wrapper. A very nice copy. See picture. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
