        The Informer

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1925. London: Jonathan Cape, 1925 First edition, first printing. Publisher's green cloth, lettered in gilt; in the original pictorial dust jacket. Near fine, with some light wear and rubbing to the extremities, minor toning to the spine, two ownership bookplates to the front pastedown, otherwise clean pages; unclipped dust jacket, with some light wear and minor toning to the extremities, minor nicks to the spine ends, some toning to the spine, a few minor smudges to the rear panel, else fine. A bright and attractive copy, free of any repairs or restoration. The Informer is a novel about the Irish civil wars featuring the tragic protagonist Gypo Nolan, an ex-policeman who, along with his friend Frankie McPhillip, has been expelled from a revolutionary group after botching an assignment. At the start of the novel, the two former partners, both struggling to eke out a living while avoiding police radar, meet in Dublin, at which point Frankie, who is dying of consumption, reveals his plan to visit his father's house despite the bounty police have put on his head. Gypo, feeling the pains of hunger and poverty, decides to use Frankie's divulgence to his benefit and discloses his friend's location to the police in return for a cash reward. Shortly thereafter, Gypo, a simpleton who never fully grasped the gravity of his actions, realizes that he has betrayed his friend and the Revolutionary cause and spends his reward quickly and carelessly out of guilt. In the remainder of the text, O'Flaherty examines the role of violence in revolution and what it means to be an "informant." In addition to this compelling main character, The Informant is lauded for its description of the atmosphere of early 20th century Ireland, which the dust jacket agrees is "painted with life-like cunning." A Haycraft-Queen Cornerstone.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        The Long Barrows of the Cotswolds

      Gloucester - John Bellows, 1925. Gloucester - John Bellows, 1925 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A fascinating work examining the remains of ancient settlings in the Costwold hills. First Edition. 'A descritpion of long barrows, stone circles and other Megalithic remains in the area covered by sheet 8 of the quarter-inch odnance suvey comprising the Cotswolds and the Welsh marshes'. With a frontispiece and numerous further black and whitephotographic plates. Including two folding maps and one large ordnance survey map in a pouch to the rear. With demonstrative diagrams in the text throughout. Osbert Guy Stanhope Crawford (18861957), was an English archaeologist and a pioneer in the use of aerial photographs for deepening archaeological understanding of the landscape. In 1914 he excavated (with E. A. Hooton) an unchambered long barrow on Wexcombe Down, and was digging when the First World War broke out. He enlisted in the London Scottish, went to France in November 1914, and transferred in 1915 to the survey division of the Third Army, serving as a photographer. In 1917 he joined the Royal Flying Corps as an observer and was shot down and captured in February 1918. He was a prisoner of war at Holzminden, from which, as at Marlborough, he tried to escape, though he later claimed to have been happier at the former than the latter. After the war a period of uncertainty and odd jobs followed, which ended in October 1920 when Sir Charles (Arden-) Close appointed Crawford the first holder of the post of archaeology officer in the Ordnance Survey. It was a role for which he was pre-eminently suited, and which he held until his retirement in 1946. His job was to revise and compile the Ordnance Survey maps from the point of view of archaeological information; but in addition to this work on the standard topographical maps he started a special survey of megalithic monuments, and initiated a series of period maps beginning with the Map of Roman Britain (1924). His megalithic surveys led him to write The Long Barrows of the Cotswolds (1925). Crawford was particularly anxious to interest others in the remote past and archaeological remains of humankind, and to relate these studies to the whole general study of human existence. In 1927 he founded Antiquity: A Quarterly Review of Archaeology which he edited for thirty years until his death. It was, and remained, the only independent archaeological journal in the world. In Antiquity he was able to publish many aerial photographs, articles on archaeology from all parts of the world, and examples of modern folk culture and the culture of modern primitive peoples to illumine the mute documents of the past.

        An American Tragedy

      New York - Boni and Liveright, 1925. New York - Boni and Liveright, 1925 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A first edition of Dreiser's brilliant 1920s novel. Interesting photographic bookplate of Kathryn and Burton Ebert, Pem-Ha-Ka-Mik to front pastedown. Blindstamped symbols to front free-endpaper and half-title. Volume I only of two volumes. Theodore Herman Albert Dreiser (August 27, 1871 December 28, 1945) was an American novelist and journalist of the naturalist school. His novels often featured main characters who succeeded at their objectives despite a lack of a firm moral code, and literary situations that more closely resemble studies of nature than tales of choice and agency. His first commercial success was An American Tragedy, published in 1925. Already in 1892, when Dreiser began work as a newspaperman he had begun to observe a certain type of crime in the United States that proved very common. It seemed to spring from the fact that almost every young person was possessed of an ingrown ambition to be somebody financially and socially. Fortune hunting became a disease with the frequent result of a peculiarly American kind of crime, a form of murder for money, when the young ambitious lover of some poorer girl found a more attractive girl with money or position but could not get rid of the first girl, usually because of pregnancy. Dreiser claimed to have collected such stories every year between 1895 and 1935. The 1906 murder of Grace Brown by Chester Gillette eventually became the basis for An American Tragedy. Condition: In a cloth binding. Externally sound, some shelfwear. Front hinge is strained. Internally, firmly bound. Bright and clean. Overall: GOOD.

        Kaloprosopies. 9 planches et une vignette de couverture gravees sur bois de M-L Baugniet.

      Bruxelles, editions de la Vache Rose, 1925.. 34,5 X 25,5 cm (15,5 x 23 cm.), en ff. Portfolio de 10 bois (9 planches + 1 vignette) sur papier Hollande, signe et numerote par l'auteur. Sous chemise rose d'edit. portant la justification et la signature de l'artiste.. Tres rare edition originale, tirage limite a 100 ex.- Eleve de Jean Delville, Marcel-Louis Baugniet (1896-1995) est un peintre, graveur, createur de decors et de costumes de theatre belge, egalement philosophe et essayiste. Il utilise les formes geometriques d'inspiration constructiviste apres avoir decouvert Kupka. En 1923, il epouse la danseuse, peintre, ecrivain et sculpteur, Marguerite Acarin, dite Akarova (1904-1999), qui a anime la vie culturelle belge pendant pres de trois decennies, a ete l'amie des poetes Maurice Careme et Charles Plisnier, et a defendu avec acharnement la musique contemporaine : Stravinsky, Darius Milhaud, Poulenc. Akarova a inspire a Baugniet l'album de bois graves 'Kaloprosopies' (1925) et l'artiste a cree pour elle des costumes et des decors de scene. L'univers de Baugniet est a cette epoque peuple de sportifs, de marins et de danseuses futuristes aux mouvements scandes ; l'artiste poursuit parallelement une abstraction tendant vers une geometrie ideale et dont le rythme colore a une musicalite qui evoque parfois Paul Klee. Fortement implique sur la scene artistique belge, Baugniet rejoint le groupe " 7 Arts ", fonde par Pierre Flouquet, les freres Bourgeois, Servranckx et Karel Maes, et il en redige le manifeste. Ce premier mouvement de l'art construit s'essouffle en Belgique au debut des annees trente et Baugniet entame une longue traversee du desert. Il continue de peindre mais sans exposer, experimente de nouvelles techniques, inspirees par Max Ernst. Tres marque par le Bauhaus, il se tourne vers l'architecture d'interieur, la creation de meubles et le design, participant a l'Exposition Universelle de Paris en 1937 et a celle de Bruxelles en 1958. La redecouverte de son travail pictural a lieu en 1977, grace a l'exposition " M-L Baugniet, 50 ans de Constructivisme ", presentee a La Galerie Jongen. Les expositions se succedent en Belgique et a l'etranger, et l'artiste se remet avec enthousiasme a la peinture, dans un style proche de ses tableaux des annees 20 mais au chromatisme plus maitrise. La Vache Rose est une petite maison d'edition fondee par le peintre Jean Emile Van Gindertael (1906-1993). Plus connu sous le nom de Jean Milo, il se disait influence par l'oeuvre d'Edgard Tytgat et edita de petits tresors de bibliophilie a la fin des annees 1920. . Emballages soignes, expedition rapide.

Zueignung auf dem Deckelbild. Die erste Doppelseite im Bug mit zwei schwachen Flecken, wenige Schlitze mit meist schwachen Randbeschädigungen, insgesamt sehr gut erhaltenes, schönes Expl. dieses seltenen Buches. - Gerta Ries Wiener (*1898 + 2000 San Francisco) soll um 1920 das erste Steckbilderbuch des Stallingverlages "Nürnberger Puppenstuben" produziert haben, das in zweiter Auflage dann von Wenz-Vietor gestaltet wurde. Sie wanderte danach in die USA aus und wurde dort vor allem als Bildhauerin (Medallien) bekannt. Das vorliegende Buch ist sozusagen eine Fortsetzung und zweiter Versuch im Metier des Bilderbuches, der aber offensichtlich kein kommerzieller Erfolg wurde. Es wurde in Deutschland 1925 unter dem Titel "Der Jahrmarkt" (Stalling) bzw. "LunaPark" veröffentlicht. Sehr selten. - "Famed Jewish Artist GERTA RIES was born December 9, 1898 in Hull, England. Her family moved to Berlin before coming to America in 1921 where she continued to study art. She was the sole illustrator of this attractive full color BABY'S BOOK published in January 1924 by the New York Home Office of Metropolitan Life Insurance Company. Her highly successful long career in commercial art included a cartoon series in The New York World, portrait busts to dolls, and children book illustrator. She became more famous and recognized for her numerous designs selected as sculpture medals issued by the Jewish American Hall of Fame Medals. Her first design ( LOUIS BRANDULS ) was selected in 1974 when she had reached the age of 72. A total of eleven of her designs were selected as Hall of Fame medals in following years. She died March 1, 2000 at the age of 101."

        A collection of forty-three ephemeral Russian émigré editions of sheet music

      Izdatel'stvo "Severnaia lira, ca. 1925. [Krsko, Slovenia]: Izdatel&#39;stvo "Severnaia lira, ca. 1925. Octavos (24 x 16 cm). Single folded sheets; illustrated covers, some signed; 2-3 pp. of sheet music each; some issues with publisher&#39;s catalog. Occasional light soil and small nicks; a few issues with price stamp; overall a well-preserved set. Large collection of ephemeral sheet music issued by this undocumented publisher of art songs, waltzes, arias, and other popular music genres, presumably published in the mid-1920s. Though russo- and francophone in orientation, &#147;Severnaia lira&#148; was apparently based in Slovenia (and possibly the publishing project of famous Russian pianist and composer Oscar Strock). The wrappers are decorated with numerous contemporary illustrations as well as reproductions of known Russian artworks. The music represented ranges from Russian and Ukrainian folk tunes, to chansons and romances, to fashionable European dances, such as a &#147;Kokain-Shimmy-fox mysterieux&#148; and the &#147;Tango-Maxixe.&#148; Apparently over 3000 separate editions were published in the series; our numbers range from 2904 to 3092.
