This is the first UK edition of these stories which were commissioned by the U.S. publisher David McKay to go with the illustrations by Willebeek Le Mair. Milne lost thousands on the deal as he foolishly accepted a lump sum payment of £200. The book was a huge success and when McKay suggested to Milne another project with Shepard on which he would be paid a royalty, Milne told him to 'go to San Francisco and chew gum' (See Thwaite page 286).

        MY LADY'S LIPS (1925)

      USA 1925 - Vintage original 27 x 41" (68 x 102 cm.) one sheet poster, USA. Clara Bow, William Powell, Alyce Mills, Frank Keenan, Ford Sterling, dir: James P. Hogan; B. P. Schulberg/Preferred Pictures Corp. An extremely rare poster and one of the earliest to feature star Clara Bow prominently. Long believed to be a lost film, a nitrate print was found and has been preserved. The film is a romance with a suspense twist in which Powell plays the debonair character he became famous for and Clara Bow as the ultimate jazz baby. On linen, there was some foldline separation, especially at edge borders, there has been some minor inpainting in the area of the words "MY" and "LIPS", but poster has extraordinary, bright, original colors, NEAR FINE.

L'auteur supprima les 100 pages superflue et l' E.O. parue ainsi amputée.

        Das Buch 15 Volumes

      Verlag Lambert Schneider/ Schocken 1925-1935, Berlin - Slight wear and soil to cream colored flexible vellum boards, light foxing to fore and bottom page edges ; Bright, solid books, top edge gilt, gilt stamped titles front and spine. This is not the true first but the deluxe edition published with vellum flexible boards. satin bookmark bound in each book. Text in German.; Die Schrift; Small 8vo 7½" - 8" tall; 2967 pages; Das Buch (Die Schrift) is the first translation of the Hebrew Bible into German, a language that would be more understandable to European Jews. "Born in Vienna, Buber came from a family of observant Jews, but broke with Jewish custom to pursue secular studies in philosophy. In 1902, he became the editor of the weekly Die Welt, the central organ of the Zionist movement, although he later withdrew from organizational work in Zionism. In 1923, Buber wrote his famous essay on existence, Ich und Du (later translated into English as I and Thou), and in 1925, he began translating the Hebrew Bible into the German language. In 1930, Buber became an honorary professor at the University of Frankfurt am Main, but resigned in protest from his professorship immediately after Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933. He then founded the Central Office for Jewish Adult Education, which became an increasingly important body as the German government forbade Jews to attend public education. In 1938, Buber left Germany and settled in Jerusalem, Mandate Palestine (later Israel)." Buber worked with Rosenzweig until ill health forced his co-translator to resign in 1929. The balance of work was done by Buber alone. With the rise of Nazism and the changes to the laws regulating the publishing industry, Verlag Lambert Schneider was forced to cede the publishing of this series to Schocken. The books are titled as follows: - I Im Anfang; II Namen; III Er Rief; IV In Der Wüste; V Reden; VI Josephus; VII Richter; VIII Schmuel; IX Königs; X Jeschajahu; XI Jirmajahu; XII Jecheskel; XIII; Der Zwölf; XIV Der Preisungen and XV Gleichsprüche [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Tree of The Folkungs [Signed / Ingraverat] [The Tree of the Young People; Folkunga Trädet: Folke Filbyter and Bjälboarvfet] WAS $2,350

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1925. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1925. First American edition. Hardcover. Very Good +. PRESENTLY DISCOUNTED. WAS $2,350. 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.

        Sankt Moritz - Portofino. - Fotoalbum mit s/w Ferienaufnahmen von Sankt Moritz und dem Engadin im Winter sowie von Portofino im Sommer.

      um 1925,. 25x35 cm (Querformat), 32 graue Bll. (davon 13 Bll. gefüllt) mit 93 s/w Fotos im Format 8x10.5 cm, guter Zustand, Orig. Perkalineinband mit goldgeprägtem Schriftzug ,Photographien' auf Vorderdeck. u. gemustertem Vorsatzpapier (Rüegg-Naegeli & Cie in Zürich), sehr guter Zustand.. Schöne private Ferienaufnahmen von einer gutbürgerlichen (Schweizer?) Familie zu Anfang des 20. Jh., welche im Winter in das bereits touristisch erschlossene und exklusive Sankt Moritz in die Ferien fährt und den Sommer in Portofino verbringt. Die ersten Aufnahmen zeigen das tiefverschneite Engadin und Sankt Moritz mit seinem See und den ersten Hotelanlagen. Fotos von Hängen voller Skiläufer bei Schischanze und gutgekleideter Damen und Herren beim Eisschuhlaufen auf dem See oder an dessen Ufer beim Sonnenbaden (natürlich dick vermummt) zeugen vom touristischen Glanz schon zur Frühzeit des Engadiner Wintersportortes, als Männer noch Knickerbocker trugen und die Damen grosse Hüte und knöchellange Röcke. Einige Bilder entstanden wohl während des Schlittschuhlaufens und sind etwas verwackelt. Portofino im Sommer 1925 wirkt dagegen noch wie ein idyllisch verschlafenes Fischernest mit Aufnahmen einer Prozession und des anschliessenden Volksfestes. Die letzten 3 Aufnahmen stammen wieder aus den Bergen im Sommer.Please notify before visiting to see a book. Prices are excl. VAT/TVA (only Switzerland) & postage.

      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
