        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.

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 highly successful long career in commercial art included a cartoon series in The New York World, portrait busts to dolls, and children book illustrator.

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.

        Beautiful Bronholly Park in the Heart of Hollywood

      Los Angeles.: Dr. Carl Schultz., 1925.. Los Angeles.: Dr. Carl Schultz.. 1925.. Two-color brochure, 9 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches, unfolding to 9 1/4 x 8 1/2 inches, plus blueprint plat map, 9 1/4 x 12 inches, with laid-in sheet of Sales Prices for October 1925. Light wear; good condition. The brochure states: "Nowhere in this magnificent Southland, is it possible to find a homesite so desirably located - nestled in the finest residential foothills of Hollywood, adjoining Hollywoodland and Griffith Park, is beautiful Bronholly Park." The sub-division&#39;s name was evidently an amalgam of Bronson Avenue (Canyon Drive), the route to the homesites, and Hollywoodland, the sub-division immediately adjacent. Seventy-eight homesites are identified in the blueprint plat map; on the laid-in sheet they are listed from $950.00 to $4700.00. Dr. Carl Schultz is listed as the owner of the property. No copies located in WorldCat. An uncommon ephemeral Los Angeles real estate item in good condition. .

        MRS. DALLOWAY

      , 1925. 1925. London: Published by Leonard & Virginia Woolf at The Hogarth Press, 1925. Original reddish-brown cloth. First Edition of Virginia Woolf&#39;s well-known stream-of-consciousness novel, a day in the life (with numerous flashbacks) of Clarissa Dalloway. The Woolfs&#39; Hogarth Press first printing consisted of about 2,000 copies.~Mrs Dalloway, a fashionable woman, gives a party, and the hours required by this event and the preparation for it enable the author to show us life and character in motion, forming and re-forming from moment to moment. The main events concern the return from India of Peter Walsh, who has been in love with Mrs Dalloway; the suicide of the shell-shocked Septimus; the arrival of Sir William Bradshaw, the specialist who had not, and by his very nature could not have, helped Septimus; and the arrival, uninvited, of Mrs Dalloway&#39;s friend Sally Seton, to whom the last word on Mrs Dalloway is given. [CGEL]~This copy, withOUT dust jacket, is in very nearly fine condition (the slightest of rubbing at a couple of binding edges). Like TO THE LIGHTHOUSE, MRS. DALLOWAY in the Vanessa Bell dust jacket now costs over $50,000; as a result, jacketless copies such as this have earned new respect. Kirkpatrick A9a.

        A GALLERY OF CHILDREN

      London Stanley Paul & Co. , 1925. London Stanley Paul & Co. , 1925. First edition. Large 4to. Original blue cloth with gilt lettering and pictorial onlay to the upper cover. This copy in the original pictorial dustwrapper. A fine copy in near fine dustwrapper, which has a small tear to the rear panel, but is bright, clean and crisp. Pictorial title page and twelve colour illustrations by Saida (Henriette Willebeek Le Mair). This is Milne&#39;s first book of prose for children. The half title mentions that A.A. Milne is the author of "When We Were Very Young", which had been published to great acclaim the previous year. This book predates Winnie the Pooh by one year. The stories were written to accompany the illustrations which had originally appeared in 1923 as advertisements for Colgate. They are signed "Saida", a pseudonym for Dutch artist Henritette Willbeek Le Mair. So popular were the drawings that Milne was asked to write children&#39;s stories to accompany them in this rather large, and beautiful book.

Written in French with the addition of three Hieroglyphic symbols, discussing the Pharaohs, the daughter of Sun-Ra, and the Egyptian system of Justice, translated in part: "...Four thousand years before the great Jaures, the Egyptians demanded of their Pharaohs that the State rest upon the basis of Truth and Social Justice. These two great ideas being splendid stars seen by all free peoples today. The Egyptians embodied themselves in a unique figure: the Truth - Justice (hieroglyphics) Maat, daughter of Sun-Ra. And here the protestations of an Egyptian peasant/farmer are addressed 2000 years before our era, to his Pharaoh...Speak the Truth, carry out Justice, for Maat is great, she is powerful, she is eternal...and if you observe this, she will steer you to beatitude..." Accompanied by Moret&#39;s very rare printed calling card as Professor at the College of France, located in Paris. Boldly signed "A Moret" and in very good condition.

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

      Doubleday, Page & Company, Garden City 1925 - 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 murders 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 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.
