      Paris [1925]. large 4to. 20pp - Paris [1925]. large 4to. 20pp. A portfolio of images of the infamous Luis Ferdinand d'Orleans infant d'Espagne, outrageous gay character, drug dealer, cocaine addict, friend to Cocteau, Mistinguett and, some argue, inspiration of Proust's Baron Charlus. Sem, the artist famed for chronicling the lives of the rich and famous of the Belle Epoque, issued the portfolio anonymously. Luis Ferdinand is portrayed in a number of outrageous poses, cavorting with sailors, sniffing cocaine, dressing as a woman and soliciting policemen, etc. Undoubtedly Sem's most outrageous published collection of images.Very good in original wrappers, light wear to extremities. The original, quite uncommon, envelope in which the book was issued is present.See Rodriques, J.

        The Tree of The Folkungs [Signed / Ingraverat] [The Tree of the Young People; Folkunga Trädet: Folke Filbyter and Bjälboarvfet]

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1925. First American edition. Hardcover. Very Good +. A Very Good + copy of the first American edition, first printing, first issue (a smaller, later binding up was issued in the same year) in the Publisher's original green cloth (lacking the dust jacket -- if one was issued) with the front board lettered in gilt and decorated with green and red paint (spine ends pushed, slight rubbing to the spine ends and board corners), SIGNED BY VERNER VON HEIDENSTAM on the title page. Swedish Poet and Novelist Verner Von Heidenstam, known for the joy of life shown in his prose and poetry, won the 1916 Nobel Prize in Literature "in recognition of his significance as the leading representative of a new era in our literature". Originally published in Swedish in two volumes titled Folke Filbyter (1905) and Bjälboarvfet (1907), the work was given special notice at the ceremony held to present the Prize to von Heidenstam where the noted Swedish critic Sven Söderman stated: "Truly monumental are the two volumes of Folkunga Trädet (1905-07) [The Tree of the Folkungs], Folke Filbyter and Bjälboarvet [The BjäIbo Inheritance], which constitute the trunk and lower branches of «the genealogical tree of the Folkungs», a great historical prose epic in which he [von Heidenstam] retraces the character of a clan of chieftains and the destinies of the Swedes during a period of the Middle Ages. Here the historical imagination of the author, sustained by an inspiration forever fresh, follows all threads in weaving the fates of his characters. His imagination, with its symbolic visions, glistens before the eye." Signed copies of von Heidenstam's work in any language and in any edition are extraordinarily scarce. In our experience, his signed books are among the scarcest of all those of the Nobel Prize in Literature winners. On our most recent check, the auction records revealed no signed copies of Verner von Heidenstam's works in any language appearing at auction in the past 39 years, beyond which the records do not go. A Very Good + copy of this quite notable work, SIGNED BY VERNER VON HEIDENSTAM. QUITE SCARCE TO RARE.

        The Treasure [Signed; Underskrivet] [Herr Arnes penningar : berättelse; Herr Arnes money: story]

      Garden City: Doubleday, Page & Company, 1925. First American edition. Hardcover. Very Good/very good. A Very Good copy of the first American edition, first printing (spine ends pushed, one corner turned gently inward, prior owner's penciled name, address, and "1925" to the front pastedown), in a Very Good dust jacket (small chip to spine panel's bottom also affecting a small adjoining portion of the rear panel's bottom, tear and loss to the rear upper flap fold and adjoining portion of the rear panel), SIGNED, LOCATED, and DATED BY SELMA LAGERLOF on the front free endpaper as follows: " Selma Lagerlöf // Mårbacka 14/8 1925." First published in Sweden titled "Herr Arnes penningar : berättelse" (Stockholm : Bonnier, 1904) and set in the 16th Century, "The Treasure" features Elsalill, an orphan girl who alone survived the theft of treasure from her home and the accompanying murder of her family. She dedicates her life to finding the murderers and falls in love with a nobleman, but the appearance of a coin from the treasure keeps them apart. She ultimately finds the murderers upon receiving a message from the dead. After an internal power struggle within the Swedish Academy, Lagerlöf won the 1909 Nobel Prize in Literature "in appreciation of the lofty idealism, vivid imagination and spiritual perception that characterize her writings", making her the first woman ever to win the Prize. Mårbacka, the place at which Selma Lagerlöf signed this book, is the Swedish mansion in which Selma Lagerlöf was born and raised. The Estate was lost by an ancestor due to his inability to run the farm and his resulting bankruptcy. Selma Lagerlöf bought the mansion (only) in 1907 and, in 1910, repurchased the balance of the Estate with her Nobel Prize winnings and other funds. Signed copies of any of Lagerlöf's works are quite scarce, especially when in English translation. A Very Good copy, SIGNED BY SELMA LAGERLOF. QUITE SCARCE INDEED.

        Les Marchandes de Plaisirs

      Paris: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.

        DISTINGUISHED AIR (GRIM FAIRY TALES)

      Paris: Printed for Contact Editions at The Three Mountains Press, 1925.. Paris: Printed for Contact Editions at The Three Mountains Press, 1925.. 16mo. Quarter roan and marbled boards. Edges rubbed, some occasionally pronounced spotting to several leaves, but otherwise a good copy. First edition. In addition to one hundred numbered copies on Arches (and fifteen deluxe copies), this is one of more than a small handful of copies denoted an "Author's Proof" in type on the colophon. This copy bears early ink manuscript corrections on fifteen pages, often single words or minor deletions of such a nature as to defy meaningful confirmation as in McAlmon's readily identifiable hand. Wanting the errata slip. "Most notably, in Distinguished Air: Grim Fairy Tales (1925) McAlmon recorded life in the gay subculture of Berlin with a frankness that was unequaled in the era. Compared to his stories, Christopher Isherwood's later and more famous tales of the city seem almost tame" - Richard G. Mann, GLBTQ (online) YOUNG 1755.

        Ulysses

      Shakespreare and Co., Paris 1925 - 7th printing. Inscribed by the author and dated Paris, 1926 to the well known artist Ivan Opffer who is remembered for his portraits of writers and other notable figures including James Joyce and it is also inscribed by Ivan Opffer dated Jan. 1927. Joyce's Ulysses went through several printing. The first printing was of 1000 numbered copies, The second printing by the Egoist Press of London printed 2000 copies of which 500 copies were burned by the New York Post Office Authorities. The third printing, of which there were 500 copies printed, 499 of those copies were seized by customs authorities. When Ulysses was first published, there was much controversy over its contents. It was banned in the U.K. and the United States because of the belief it contained too much obscenity ( for the period). Today, it is considered one of the most important works of Modern literature. The present copy is bound in a striking custom brown Niger goatskin binding decorated with an art deco flair of onlays in maroon, lighter brown and black with a portrait of James Joyce from a portrait by Ivan Opffer in blind on cream goatskin framed in turquoise, with gilt signature. Just a bit of toning to page edges otherwise a superb copy with a worthwhile provenance. Octavo

        Der Meister. Jungdeutsche Monatsschrift für Führer und denkende Brüder. Jge. 1-8 (=alle Jahrgänge, 2 Hefte fehlen). // Jungdeutsche Blätter. 8. Jahrgang, Hefte 1-3 + Sonderheft (=alles Erschienene) // Nachbarschaft. Monatsschrift. Jge. 8-9 (=alles).

      Berlin (Jungdeutscher Verlag / Nachbarschafts-Verlag) 1925-35.. Kartoniert .. Zeitschriften des "Jungdeutschen Ordens". Zusammen 111 Hefte. Bereits vor dem Verbot des "Meister" im März 1933 waren die "Jungdeutschen Blätter" gegründet worden, die parallel liefen, aber den "Meister" eigentlich weiterführen sollten (sie begannen mit dem 8.Jahrgang!). Sie wurden jedoch nach 4 Heften ebenfalls im März 1933 verboten,das letzte Heft, ein Sonderheft, erschien zur Wahl am 5.März 1933: "Wir werden in unserer Opposition gegen die neue Regierung volle Sachlichkeit walten lassen. Wir werden auch das Gute hervorheben. Von diesem, ersten Monat aber können wir noch nichts Gutes berichten." Umgehend brachte Mahraun in einem neuen Verlag die Zeitschrift "Nachbarschaft" heraus, die -um die Nachfolge des "Meister" deutlich zu machen- auch mit dem "8. Jahrgang, Heft 10" startete. Sie wurde erst im April 1935 (mit Heft 10 des 9.Jahrgangs) verboten, womit die Publikationen der "Jungdeutschen" ein Ende fanden - die Nazis duldeten keine anderen Faschisten neben sich! Der Jungdeutsche Orden hatte sich im Sommer 1933 aufgelöst, damit griff er einem Verbot nur vor, um sein Vermögen vor der Beschlagnahmung zu schützen. Er existierte danach nur noch als eine Art "Leserverbund" der Zeitschriften "Nachbarschaft" und "West-Ost". Mahraun wurde im Sommer 1933 für einige Wochen verhaftet und mißhandelt. Fast vollständige Reihe inklusive der seltenen Publikationen nach der Machtübernahme der NSDAP, es fehlen lediglich Jg. 5, Heft 2 und Jg. 8, Heft 2 des "Meister", sonst alles vorhanden. Guter Zustand; die "Blätter" und "Nachbarschaft" wurden auf billigerem Papier gedruckt, diese etwas angestaubt und stockfleckig.

        The Professor's House

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1925. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1925 First edition, limited issue. One of 185 (225 total) numbered copies signed by the author. Publisher's green cloth over white pictorial laid paper boards, with a pink paper label lettered in black to the spine, floral patterns to the boards in blue, green, and pink, printed on laid paper. A near fine or better copy, with some light wear to the extremities, minor toning to the spine, former owner's bookplate to the front pastedown, otherwise bright and fresh pages. An excellent copy. Crane A14. The Professor's House is an autobiographical novel divided into three sections: "Book I: The Family," "Book II: Tom Outland's Story," and "Book III: The Professor." The plot follows the fictional Professor Godfrey St. Peter, who is struggling with a mid-life crisis after the marriage of his two daughters and the death of his friend Tom Outland, who was a casualty in World War I. Interestingly, Cather first wrote the middle section as a short story and subsequently situated it within a separate story she was developing about the professor. Accordingly, the first and last sections take place in the novel's present-day, while the central section is comprised of a retrospective narrative. Like F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, The Professor's House captures the moral decline and dejection of the Lost Generation in the wake of WWI.. Signed by Author. Limited. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        Tri Legendy O Krucifixu

      nbsp;Nakladem - Ceske Graficke Unie, 1925. nbsp;Nakladem - Ceske Graficke Unie, 1925 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An extremely scarce work comprising of religiously themed short stories all linked to Jesus Christ. Written in Czech. Featuring three beautiful illustrated plates. Collated presumed complete. As the title suggests,thecommon element linking all three separate legends is the crucifix - a cross with the crucified Jesus Christ. A common feature is also the fate of the main characters, and their battle with their conscience and faith. What differs is theunderlying themes of ethnic background, religion, and social status. Each legend shows the different ways people put their faith in God. Zeyer's prose and poems are restless, nostalgic, mystical, depressive, and usually end tragically. His novels describe characters trying to live a better life under the romantic ideals, and people who find peace only at the moment of death. Condition: In a crushed morocco binding with gilt motif to both boards. Externally, sound with light marks to the front board, and minor shelfwear to the head and tail of spine. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are extremely bright and generally clean, aside from light offsetting from plates and binding. Previous owners bookplate to the front pastedown. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED..

        The Great Gatsby

      New York: Scribner?s, 1925. New York: Scribner?s, 1925. First Edition; first printing. Aside from a tiny stain on the endpapers from a label or small bookplate, and very slight cocking, a fine copy in a first printing dust jacket with considerable restoration. Most significantly, about 30% of the spine is in facsimile, skillfully matched to the original. This jacket was recently restored, at least in part to undo a heavy-handed restoration from the distant past. Included with this copy is an extensive report from the conservationist detailing the work, materials and methods used. In a custom clamshell box.

        THE GREAT GATSBY

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1925. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1925. First Edition. Good. First issue, with the four main issue points present: 1) pg. 60, line 16 "chatter" 2) pg. 119, line 22 "northern" 3) pg. 205, lines 9-10 "sick in tired" 4) pg. 211, lines 7-8 "Union Street station." This copy Good only, on account of replaced endpapers in the front. It seems logical to conclude that this copy is ex-library, although no other marks are present and the book is otherwise in excellent condition. A budget copy for someone who doesn't want to spend three or four thousand on a nice copy or plans to rebind it. Despite its grand stature today, the book was a commercial failure during Fitzgerald's lifetime, much to the author's surprise and disappointment. Fitzgerald had felt the power of the novel and believed that it was a work of mature artistry. Modern scholars and readers agree and now "Gatsby" is a keystone of any modern first collection. Good.

        Papers Relating to Political Economy

      London: Published on behalf of the Royal Economic Society by Macmillan and Co., Limited, 1925. London: Published on behalf of the Royal Economic Society by Macmillan and Co., Limited,, 1925. 3 volumes, large octavo. Original dark green-blue cloth, two narrowly spaced and two widely spaced rules in blind at top and bottom of upper and lower boards continued in gilt to spine, gilt titles to spine. Very light rubbing to covers, corners slightly bumped, lightly tanned edges and endpapers. First quire in Volume I slightly pulled and with minor tear, slight wear at ends of spine, lower front and rear joint, lower corners of boards. Small closed tear at head of spine of Volume II. Light wear to ends of spine of Volume III. A very good set. First edition, first impression. The three volumes constituting practically all of Edgeworth's work in economic theory. "Edgeworth's contribution to economics left their mark on the theories of monopoly, foreign trade, taxation and production. In production theory, earlier authorities had generally employed the concept of an average product to demonstrate diminishing returns. It was Edgeworth who insisted on the distinction between the average and the marginal product and who understood the significance of the latter in connection with the identification of the maximum position" (Spiegal). "Edgeworth has always been regarded as an exceptionally distinguished 'all-rounder', making major contributions to both economic and statistical theory to a degree that no one else, with the possible exception of Harold Hotelling, has ever approached. Since 1960, however, serious reappraisal of the depth and subtlety of those contributions to each discipline has shown decisively that he was indeed one of the truly great economists of his time, and one of its greatest statisticians" (ODNB). With owner signature to front pastedown in all volumes.
