        Sangschaw ( Inscribed and Signed By The Author To Literary Critic Douglas Sealy)

      First Edition published by William Blackwood And Sons in 1925. Second issue with pale blue cloth and black titling. The BOOK is in Very Good+ condition. Some pushing at the spine ends with a little rubbing to the edges. Some toning to the text-block with some spotting to the prelims and endpapers. Occasional light spot to the pages in places. The WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good+ or better condition. Toning to the edges, folds and the spine. Light creasing and mild edge-wear at the spine ends with a little loss. The wrapper is protected in a removable Brodart archival cover. The book has been Inscribed and Signed By the Author to the front blank endpaper; Signed for my friend, Douglas Sealy, with every high regard and good wish from Hugh M'Diarmid, Dublin, Dec' 67'. The recipient Douglas Sealy was a literary critic, teacher and a renowned translator of Irish poetry. Hugh MacDiarmid (C.M. Grieve) was Scotland's most influential and controversial writer in the 20th century. He urged and enabled the regeneration of all aspects of Scotland's literature and culture through his poetry, polemical writing and political activity. 'A Drunk Man Looks at the Thistle' (1926) is generally regarded as Scotland's masterpiece of Modernism. 'He started writing in Scots, using words and phrases he knew from boyhood and acquired from reading in dictionaries and works of Scottish literature from earlier eras. The poems of Sangschaw (1925), Penny Wheep (1926) and A Drunk Man Looks At The Thistle (1926) were shocking, adult, wry, rebarbative, difficult, piercingly sweet, unsentimental and brutal. They established a new dispensation for Scottish literature, and modernist lusts: for the body and the sexually explicit cognate with Joyce and Lawrence; for the local and demotic, cognate with William Carlos Williams; for the difficult, cognate with Eliot; for the vatic and austere, cognate with Yeats and Pound; for the intellectually demanding, cognate with Stevens and Valéry; but uniquely in the Scottish context, reclaiming a literary history that had fallen into neglect and obfuscation. Forget about Burns, he advised, go back to Dunbar and Henryson, recover and reclaim a national tradition that goes back through millennia.' (Scottish Poetry Library). A wonderful signed association copy of the author's first poetry collection and scarce with such attributes. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.

        WORKS

      London: The Gresham Publishing Co., 1925-1928. 22 volumes. The scarce and handsome Medallion Edition. With frontispiece illustrations to the volumes and titles printed in black and red. 8vo, in the publisher's original blue cloth, the upper covers with medallion profile portraits of Conrad. A very fine and handsome set. A very distinguished looking set of Conrad's works. The tasteful presentation is fitting to this master prose stylist who brought a non-English sensibility into English literature. His stories and novels, many with nautical settings, depict the trials of the human spirit in the midst of an impassive, inscrutable universe. His narrative style and anti-heroic characters have influenced many authors, including F. Scott Fitzgerald, William Faulkner, Ernest Hemingway, André Malraux, George Orwell, Graham Greene, Gabriel García Márquez, John le Carré, V. S. Naipaul, Philip Roth, J. M. Coetzee, and Salman Rushdie.

        A fine signed portrait photograph of Australia's eighth Governor-General, The Right Honourable John Lawrence Baird, 1st Baron Stonehaven, GCMG, DSO, PC, JP, DL

      The sepia-toned gelatin silver photograph (image size 188 x 137 mm) is mounted on light-brown textured card, set within a slightly larger impressed area, with a single lead pencil line ruled around the edges of the print itself (we suggest to mask trifling amounts of excess glue). The mounted photograph is then tipped in to a plain folder made from a lighter grade of the same light-brown textured stock. The folder is a little worn along its hinge, lightly chipped along the rear leading edge, and a little bumped at the corners; the mount is lightly bumped at the corners; the photograph is in very fine condition, signed clearly in ink 'Stonehaven' in the bottom right-hand corner. Lord Stonehaven was Governor-General from October 1925 to October 1930. He is depicted, standing smartly dressed in Boy Scout uniform, in the garden at (presumably) his official residence, Admiralty House at Kirribilli, with the recently-commenced southern arch of the Sydney Harbour Bridge unmistakenly making an impression in the rear. Arch construction began, from the south, in late October 1928; the limited progress shown in the photograph suggests it was taken in the early months of 1929. The photographer is not credited, but we would be surprised if May Moore was not on the short list of possibilities. New Zealand-born May Moore (1881-1931) emigrated to Australia in 1910 and opened her first studio the following year in Sydney. Working initially together with her sister Mina (who ran her own studio in Melbourne from 1916), her excellent portrait photography attracted a large clientele, especially among artistic circles. May in particular photographed many Sydney celebrities. 'They pioneered sepia tonings, bromide paper and limp mounting-boards.... Illness forced her to retire about 1928, but she continued to paint landscapes' before her death from cancer on 10 June 1931 (Australian Dictionary of Biography). However, even if the photographer's identity remains unknown, this superb image survives on its own merits as a fitting tribute to both parties involved.

        British Raj in North-West Frontier Province - Balochistan and Sindh

      Views of Quetta, Chaman, Karachi, Bela, and Forbidden Border Regions [Balochistan, Sindh, North-West Frontier (India and Pakistan), 1925] - Three photograph albums of firsthand views captured by a young soldier whilst serving in the era of British Raj, with the Rifle Brigade of the British Army (The Prince Consort's Own). Altogether containing 188 gelatin silver print photographs measuring approximately 4 x 6 cm, neatly ensconced behind window mounts, recto and verso onto thick grey cardstock leaves. With 6 larger print photographs (16 x 11 cm, captioned to verso) of certain images in the album, loosely inserted. 8vo. albums with like bindings, grey cloth boards ruled in black, two volumes measuring approximately 15,5 x 11,5 cm, one larger oblong volume measuring approximately 20 x 15,5 cm. Together with the original film negatives contained in an Eastman Negative Album complete with manuscript numbered index, rare with the original sleeve, and captioned to front in manuscript "4th Batt. Rifle Brigade." A scant few of the negatives are captioned in manuscript to margins, revealing dates in 1925, and one possibly being as early 11/1923. Together with 1 newspaper clipping showing and describing a natural disaster which took place ten years later at Quetta. Through the eyes and camera lens of a young British Infantry soldier we are shown what life was like in Pakistan long before independence, prior to the Second World War, and even before the devastating earthquake of 1935. Captivating scenes illustrate local custom and trades, British Army duty and collaboration with the Indian Army. Images and corresponding film negatives suggest that the lad arrived at Karachi onboard the troopship SS Barpeta. Changes in seasons, together with one captioned negative which seems to bear the date 1923, and others definitely dating to 1925, indicate a lengthy tour abroad. Scenes are from Quetta, Chaman, Karachi, Bela, and travelling in between, sometimes on the brink of forbidden regions of the Northwest Frontier. Local custom and trades are seen in images of a quarry and brick-making facility, an array of cart styles for conveyance, as well as the use of camels, horses, donkeys, oxen, even elephants used for transport and labour, Especially unique are the beehive-like dome dwellings made of stones and mud seen in the desert, nomadic or impoverished families living in tents, and a large mud-walled native tomb. Lively images capture a large native trolley filled with passengers, and merchant shops at the Suraj Gonj Bazaar in Quetta. Also at Quetta, some ten years before earthquake of 1935, we can identify the Quetta railway station with horse-drawn carriages for hire upon arrival, the Sandeman Darbar Hall [Sandeman Memorial Hall] with a statue erected in memory of Sir Robert Groves Sandeman, KCSI (1835-1892), and also the Command and Staff College at Quetta (1907-1955) which had been founded two years earlier in Deolali, and, interesting to note, was equipped with a canon nestled in the bushes to guard the front entrance. For equestrian enthusiasts, an event took place at the Quetta race course, the sport being relatively new to the region as there is no seating, nor shelter for spectators or participants. A lovely and rare large print photograph of the old water tower at Chaman, with a camel caravan in the foreground, is captioned, "Chaman. Water tower. An active service on the Afghan border showing camel transport. This is the most northern station in India, no white people whatever live here & no white women ever allowed." Also at Chaman, he photographs street scene and a "native sentry". [Chaman or Chamman, situated some 130 km from Quetta, is the capital of Qilla Abdullah District, Balochistan, in today's Pakistan. It is situated south of the Chaman border crossing with neighbouring Spin Boldak in Kandahar Province of Afghanistan. The town is an important trade point in the Balochistan region, providing a gateway on the trade routes between Afghanistan and Karachi.] A large view marked "Bela" further reveals that foreigners were not permitted in certain regions. The caption to verso describes this location as "A short distance from camp on the north-west frontier [with] the Himalayas in the background" further remarking on the photograph, "a party of Afghan merchants can be seen... Photo was taken as near as we were allowed to go in..." [Bela is an important town of Lasbela District in Balochistan today, and is the chief town of the Bela Tehsil. It is an ancient town in a historic track surrounded by hills above the Arabian Sea nearly 200 km west of Karachi.] Dated 20 August 1925 at "Anna" on the film negative, a large dam dons a narrow bridge top to cross the river, and a winding railway leads to the village of "Anna" [presumably referring to Pakka Anna in the Toba Tek Singh district of Punjab, which was developed by the British toward the end of the 19th Century when a canal system was built]. Views of the British military garrison "Karachi Rest Camp" illustrates the desolation of many regions to which the regiments were assigned and lived. Possibly from the nearby city of Karachi, photographs show colonial European built churches, a Freemason Hall, and an Indian Army practice exercise. Karachi is located on the coastline of Sindh province in today's southern Pakistan, along a natural harbour on the Arabian Sea. At the time of these photographs it was in British India. The city's municipal government was established under British rule. British army tent encampments are erected in remote locations, and permanent other guarded barracks are shown, including the Quetta Fort. A rather comfortable estate with an entrance sign reading "Soldiers home" provides fine accommodations and mess. Rail travel being the principle mode of transportation for the regiments, images of new tracks and stations appear, as does an incident of a runaway train collapsed at the point where the cars join. The Rifle Brigade (The Prince Consort's Own) was an infantry rifle regiment of the British Army, formed in January 1800 as the "Experimental Corps of Riflemen" to provide sharpshooters, scouts and skirmishers. The unit was distinguished by its use of green uniforms as standard in place of the traditional redcoat, as well as being armed with the first British-made rifle accepted by the British Army, in place of smooth-bore muskets. The infantry served in India from the early years, participating in the Indian Rebellion and the Siege of Lucknow in Autumn 1857. SS Barpeta (1914) was a Steel Screw Steamer, 3283gt, built by Barclay Curle & Company Glasgow, Yard No 509, for the British India Steam Navigation Company. During the Great War she served as a troopship, bringing squadrons into Karachi harbour, from where they would travel by rail. Evidently after the war she continued army service to India. In WWII she was requisitioned for temporary use as a Landing Ship Infantry under the Red Ensign. In July 1950 she was sold and scrapped at Bombay by Indian Steel Syndicate. Sandeman Darbar Hall in Quetta, with the statue erected in memory of Sir Robert Groves Sandeman, KCSI (1835-1892), Colonial British Indian officer and administrator who took part in the final capture of Lucknow as adjutant of the 2nd Bengal Lancers, was appointed to the Punjab Commission after the suppression of the mutiny, and introduced an innovative system of tribal pacification in Balochistan which remained in effect from 1877 to 1947. Quetta is the provincial capital of Balochistan, Pakistan, and situated near the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, beneath the slopes of Murdar, at the northern end of the Quetta-Pishin valley. At an elevation of 5,500 feet above sea level, the city lies on the Bolan Pass route which was once the only gateway from Central Asia to South Asia, and remains important link on the line of communication with India. During the era of British Raj, in 1876 Quetta was incorporated into British controlled territories of the subcontinent. The military station was designed by Sir Hugh Barnes in 1881 and laid out on systematic lines of which broad axial roads were a predominant feature. British Troops constructed the infrastructure for their establishment as it was a strategic location. By the time of the earthquake on 31 May 1935, Quetta had developed into a bustling city with a number of multistory buildings and was known as "Little Paris". The epicenter of the earthquake was close to the city and destroyed most of the city's infrastructure and killed an estimated 40,000 people. The 1935 Quetta earthquake occurred on 31 May between 2:33 am and 3:40 am at Quetta, Balochistan, British Raj (now part of Pakistan). The earthquake had a magnitude of 7.7 Mw and anywhere between 30,000 and 60,000 people died from the impact. This ranked as the deadliest earthquake that hit South Asia until the 2005 Kashmir earthquake. The quake was centered 4.0 kilometres south-west of Ali Jaan, Balochistan, British India. A Regimental Journal for the 1st Battalion of the Queen's Royal Regiment based in Quetta issued on November 1935 stated, "It is not possible to describe the state of the city when the battalion first saw it. It was razed to the ground. Corpses were lying everywhere in the hot sun and every available vehicle in Quetta was being used for the transportation of injured... Battalion Headquarters were established at the Residency. Hardly had we commenced our work than we were called upon to supply a party of fifty men, which were later increased to a hundred, to dig graves in the cemetery..." The North-West Frontier Province was a former province created by the British in their vast territories in South Asia then called British India. It was established in 1901 and dissolved in 1955, after eight years as part of the independent state of Pakistan. The province covered an area of 70,709 km², including much of the current Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (also called KPK) province but excluding the former princely states of Amb, Chitral, Dir, Phulra and Swat. The capital was the city of Peshawar and the province was composed of three divisions (Peshawar, Dera Ismail Khan and Malakand. Until 1947 the province was bordered by five princely states to the north, the minor states of the Gilgit Agency to the northeast, the province of West Punjab to the east, and the province of Balochistan to the south. Afghanistan lay to the northwest, with the tribal agencies forming a buffer zone.

        Scrapbooks and collages].

      C.?.?.?.?. ????????? -1927 1925 - Collection comprising two scrapbooks of 70 and 48 pp., illustrated with ink drawings, collages, cut-out articles; 3 notebooks of 3, 5 and 12 pp. with attendance lists and club reports, a list of soviet magazines (Cinema Sovietique, Cinema, Ecran sovietique, ARK), with subscription prices for a year or 6 months (year 1926); 4 brochures of films: Le marriage d'ours or le dernier Chemet, Mécanicien Oukhtomski, Abrek Zaur; tickets, pieces of coloured films and other memorabilia. An important archive documenting the early years of the development of Soviet cinema. It combines records of the activity of the Society of Study of Spectators and Film (SFSC), audience feedback on films produced in 1925 – 1927, and collection of the published reviews, altogether providing a comprehensive understanding of the early years of the Soviet cinema and preferences of the audience at the time. The SFSC was part of the branch of the Society of Friends of the Soviet Cinema at the Kalinin Leningrad Polytechnic Institute. Scrapbooks and notebooks bear the signature "V. Renne", which is likely to stand for Vladimir Tikhonovich Renne (1907 - 1971), who was a student and later a lecturer in electric engineering at the Leningrad Polytechnic Institute. Judging from the notes, in 1925 - 1927 Renne was a secretary of the Department of SFSC at the institute, and was responsible for recording attendance of the screenings, reviews of the films prepared by members of the society and decisions voted for during the meetings of the bureau. SFSC was active in Russia from 1925. Among the members of the Central advisory boards were such prominent Soviet filmmakers as Eyzenshteyn, Pudovkin, Vertov and Turkin. In 1928 the first All-Russian conference of the SFSC took place, which included delegates from approximately 60 branches of the organization. As the SFSC charter stated, the main goals of the organization were the following: fight against the spread of bourgeois ideology in cinema, the facilitation and proliferation of the ideologically correct films, and the promotion of cinema in villages (periodical Soviet cinema No1, 1925). The organization was trying to achieve these goals through the activity of its branches. Though successful, its activity was suspended upon an order from Stalin. In spite of strict censorship in place, the government was still not comfortable with a development of critical thinking among the members of the organization. ___________________________ ?????? ????? ??????????, ??????????????? ???? ?????????? ????????????? ?????? ? ???????????? ?????? ???????? ??????? ? ?????, ?????? ???????? ?? ????????????? ????????? ?????? 1925 – 1927 ?????, ? ????? ???????? ???????? ???????? ???? ???????????? ????????????? ? ???????? ?????????????? ????????????? ? ???????????? ???????? ???? ??????? ?????? ???????? ???????? ? ?????

        Original pencil drawing of Felix the Cat by creator Pat Sullivan. Drawn on the back of a menu card titled: "Ideal Films Ltd. / Complimentary Luncheon / to / Pat Sullivan / (Creator of 'Felix the Cat') / Chairman: / Tom Webster / Savoy Hotel, / September 29th, 1925"

      London: Savoy Hotel, 1925 - Menu card (166 x 105 mm), 4pp. folded, blue-green border with gilt decoration, front cover with Savoy Hotel embossed crest in gilt, red and royal blue, Ideal Films logo bottom right. Back cover lightly toned, a few old pale stains otherwise in excellent condition. Delightful original pencil sketch of Felix the Cat by creator Pat Sullivan, presented to fellow cartoonist and British animation pioneer Tom Webster: a marvellous memento of a celebratory lunch in London when the Felix craze was at its height; on the back panel of the menu card Sullivan has drawn a disconcerted Felix, with speech bubble reading: "Gosh! I was just at a luncheon - and - Tom Webster drew me as a horse - Ye Gods I'm Ruined!!" and below Felix: "Best Wishes to to [sic] Tom Webster from - Pat Sullivan -". Invalided out of the army in July 1917, having sustained a neck wound at the Somme the previous November, Webster (1886-1962) became involved in animation and produced two early shorts featuring Charlie Chaplin (now lost): Charlie at the Front and Charlie Joins the Navy (both 1918). In 1919 he began a 20 year career as sports cartoonist for the Daily Mail, specialising in horse racing. At the time of this meeting with Sullivan he was collaborating on a new series of animated features starring a race horse and his trainer, initially released in 1926 as the "Alfred and Steve" films. "Felix the Cat, arguably the first great animation star, hit cinema screens in 1919. Interest in series characters would rise in the twenties, with UK cartoonists - some of them active in the previous decade, including Anson Dyer, George E. Studdy and Tom Webster - attempting with varying degrees of success to create the British answer to Felix" (ukanimation.blogspot). "Felix cartoons were aimed at adults, incorporating skits on cubism and flappers. The films—and from 1923 the published comic strips—spread to Europe and in 1924, when the Sullivans toured England, Felix was so famous that entrepreneurs were producing pirated dolls and toys. Sullivan managed to obtain a share of the royalties. On another trip to Sydney with his wife in December 1925 he was given a civic reception" (Australian Dictionary of Biography). This lively post-prandial sketch of Felix was made at a "complimentary luncheon" in honour of Felix's putative creator, Australian-American cartoonist and animator Pat Sullivan (1885-1933), and was chaired by Tom Webster. The hosts, Ideal Films, were one of the leading British production companies of the time. The number hurriedly written down on the front (Sloane 5064) was that of a taxi rank serving the West End and located at Hyde Park Corner - essential after a boozy lunch that took in "Graves Supérieur demi-doux 1916" and "Chât. Pontet Canet 1917". A highly ephemeral piece with a very appealing association; original signed sketches of Felix with such an intimate provenance are rare - and this image, with accompanying speech bubble and personalised inscription to a "brother-in-ink", is particularly resonant. For further information on Webster, see the online British Cartoon Archive at University of Kent.

        Original pencil drawing of Felix the Cat by creator Pat Sullivan.

      London: Savoy Hotel,, 1925. Drawn on the back of a menu card titled: "Ideal Films Ltd. / Complimentary Luncheon / to / Pat Sullivan / (Creator of 'Felix the Cat') / Chairman: / Tom Webster / Savoy Hotel, / September 29th, 1925 Menu card (166 x 105 mm), 4pp. folded, blue-green border with gilt decoration, front cover with Savoy Hotel embossed crest in gilt, red and royal blue, Ideal Films logo bottom right. Back cover lightly toned, a few old pale stains otherwise in excellent condition. Delightful original pencil sketch of Felix the Cat by creator Pat Sullivan, presented to fellow cartoonist and British animation pioneer Tom Webster: a marvellous memento of a celebratory lunch in London when the Felix craze was at its height; on the back panel of the menu card Sullivan has drawn a disconcerted Felix, with speech bubble reading: "Gosh! I was just at a luncheon - and - Tom Webster drew me as a horse - Ye Gods I'm Ruined!!" and below Felix: "Best Wishes to to [sic] Tom Webster from - Pat Sullivan -". Invalided out of the army in July 1917, having sustained a neck wound at the Somme the previous November, Webster (1886-1962) became involved in animation and produced two early shorts featuring Charlie Chaplin (now lost): Charlie at the Front and Charlie Joins the Navy (both 1918). In 1919 he began a 20 year career as sports cartoonist for the Daily Mail, specialising in horse racing. At the time of this meeting with Sullivan he was collaborating on a new series of animated features starring a race horse and his trainer, initially released in 1926 as the "Alfred and Steve" films. "Felix the Cat, arguably the first great animation star, hit cinema screens in 1919... Interest in series characters would rise in the twenties, with UK cartoonists - some of them active in the previous decade, including Anson Dyer, George E. Studdy and Tom Webster - attempting with varying degrees of success to create the British answer to Felix" (ukanimation.blogspot). "Felix cartoons were aimed at adults, incorporating skits on cubism and flappers. The films—and from 1923 the published comic strips—spread to Europe and in 1924, when the Sullivans toured England, Felix was so famous that entrepreneurs were producing pirated dolls and toys. Sullivan managed to obtain a share of the royalties... On another trip to Sydney with his wife in December 1925 he was given a civic reception" (Australian Dictionary of Biography). This lively post-prandial sketch of Felix was made at a "complimentary luncheon" in honour of Felix's putative creator, Australian-American cartoonist and animator Pat Sullivan (1885-1933), and was chaired by Tom Webster. The hosts, Ideal Films, were one of the leading British production companies of the time.
