        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.

      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. DNBCondition: In a cloth binding. Externally very good, just a little shelfwear. Internally, firmly bound. Lovely and bright, particularly the plates,and generally clean with a few scattered spots.

        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.
