        Three Photograph Albums of British Raj in North-West Frontier Province, Balochistan and Sindh, Pre-Independence Pakistan.

      Balochistan, Sindh, India and Pakistan 1925 - Three photograph albums of firsthand views captured by a young soldier whilst serving in the era of British Raj, with the Rifle Brigade of the British Army (The Prince Consort's Own). Altogether containing 188 gelatin silver print photographs measuring approximately 4 x 6 cm, neatly ensconced behind window mounts, recto and verso onto thick grey cardstock leaves. With 6 larger print photographs (16 x 11 cm, captioned to verso) of certain images in the album, loosely inserted. 8vo. albums with like bindings, grey cloth boards ruled in black, two volumes measuring approximately 15,5 x 11,5 cm, one larger oblong volume measuring approximately 20 x 15,5 cm. Together with the original film negatives contained in an Eastman Negative Album complete with manuscript numbered index, rare with the original sleeve, and captioned to front in manuscript "4th Batt. Rifle Brigade." A scant few of the negatives are captioned in manuscript to margins, revealing dates in 1925, and one possibly being as early 11/1923. Together with 1 newspaper clipping showing and describing a natural disaster which took place ten years later at Quetta. Album corners slightly bumped, otherwise in Very Good Condition. Through the eyes and camera lens of a young British Infantry soldier we are shown what life was like in Pakistan long before independence, prior to the Second World War, and even before the devastating earthquake of 1935. Captivating scenes illustrate local custom and trades, British Army duty and collaboration with the Indian Army. Images and corresponding film negatives suggest that the lad arrived at Karachi onboard the troopship SS Barpeta. Changes in seasons, together with one captioned negative which seems to bear the date 1923, and others definitely dating to 1925, indicate a lengthy tour abroad. Scenes are from Quetta, Chaman, Karachi, Bela, and travelling in between, sometimes on the brink of forbidden regions of the Northwest Frontier.

        Gemalte Musik - Painted Music

      2 leaves including brief introductory text on the nature of photogravure and information on the Phönix printing and publishing house, followed by 8 mounted color photogravures of synaesthetic designs that translate various sounds and musical styles into images, titles include "Adagio", "Major Accord", "Musical Impression", "Furioso", "Wooden Wind Instruments", "Military March", "Chamber Music", and "Piano Concert". 4to. Printed and embossed thick paper portfolio, contents loose as issued. Berlin (Phönix Illustrationsdruck und Verlag) n.d. (circa 1925). Hans Boehm was active in Germany in the middle of the 20th century, working on set decoration, graphic arts, and church window design. While studying at the Psychological Research Society of Hamburg he crossed paths with Professor George Anschuetz, whose was doing research on the relationship between color and sound. With the "Painted Music" series, Boehm had said, "I paint what I hear." He was forced to leave Germany under Hitler and emigrated to Brazil, where he taught art, exhibited yearly, and continued his interest in color-sound research. This portfolio was published as a high-quality promotional work to market the photogravure technique available from Phönix. Very scarce; as of October 2017, WorldCat locates one holding of this edition worldwide, and one holding of a later edition in North America.

        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.

      Ypres, circa 1925-1945., London - 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 p

        The Great Gatsby.

      New York: Charles Scribners, 1925. First edition, first state of Fitzgerald's magnum opus. Octavo, original dark green cloth. First state with "chatter" p.60, "northern" p.119, "sick in tired" p.205, and "Union Street station" p. 211. In excellent condition with light rubbing to the extremities. 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). Consistently gaining popularity after World War II, the novel became an important part of American high school curricula. It was the basis for numerous stage and film adaptations. Gatsby had four film adaptations, with two exceptionally big-budget versions: the 1974 version starring Robert Redford and Mia Farrow, as well as Baz Luhrmann's 2013 version starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carrie Mulligan. Fitzgerald's granddaughter praised Lurhmann's adaptation, stating "Scott would be proud.

        Autograph Letter Signed

      Capri Italy: np, 1925. First. Fine. A REMARKABLE LETTER: F. SCOTT FITZGERALD EVALUATES HIS CAREER AND OFFERS LIFE ADVICE WHILE AWAITING THE PUBLICATION OF THE GREAT GATSBY. The letter, responding to a request by an American teacher S.D. Green to offer advice to his students, is written in ink and signed by F. Scott Fitzgerald. It reads in full: Hotel Tiberio, Capri, Italy Dear Mr. Green: Your letter followed me around Europe and reached me here. Tell them please how I regret this delay, and that I appreciate their interest and the fact that they have chosen me. I'm afraid my own career, which has been erratic and disordered, if seldom dull, would not be a very inspiring one to dilate on -- in fact my hope is that my own children will be better equipped for life and less trustful as to what their elders (including me) tell them.  If I were to say anything it would be that each man's truth is peculiar to himself and that nothing is worth believing as to conduct in life except that which you find out for yourself or at least confirm for yourself. With best wishes to them and to you Sincerely, [signed] F. Scott Fitzgerald Although not dated, the letter was written between February and April 1925, while Fitzgerald was staying at the Hotel Tiberio in Capri awaiting the publication of his masterpiece, The Great Gatsby, published on April 10, 1925. Fitzgerald during this time was in a state of high anxiety. As late as March 19, he was still wrestling with the title, sending a cable to Max Perkins that he was "crazy about [the] title Under the Red White and Blue" (instead of "The Great Gatsby"), but Perkins replied that it was too late to change. In his letter of March 31 to Perkins (from the Hotel Tiberio), he worries, "As the day approaches, my nervousness increases. Tomorrow is the 1st [of April] and your wire says the 10th. I'll be here until the 25th, probably later, so if the book prospers I'll expect some sort of cable before I leave for Paris.... Yours in a Tremble, Scott." The turbulent nature of Fitzgerald's career and life is legendary, and in this letter - written at one of the most critical moments of his life - Fitzgerald reveals a high level of self-awareness (and prescience) in realizing that his path may not be a model for others to follow. In the actual advice he does offer, he displays his own insecurities over the discovery of truth and a distrust for authority that would become an essential characteristic for members of his "Lost Generation". The recipient, S.D. Green, wrote letters soliciting the advice of various noteworthy people during the years 1922-25. Hotel Tiberio, Capri, Italy. Feb-April 1925. One 8x12 inch sheet, written on one side; custom decorative box by noted book designer Sjoerd Hofstra. Usual folds, evidence of paper clip at top margin; generally fine. FITZGERALD LETTERS WITH SUCH REVEALING CONTENT ARE EXTRAORDINARILY RARE ON THE MARKET.
