        Fairey III D - 1925

      Cowes: Beken,, [1925]. Cowes: Beken,, [1925]. Image size: 400 x 500mm Framed size: 580 x 668mm Hand printed in sepia-brown tone from the original glass plate negative. Fine condition. Presented in a Black frame From the Beken archive, printed digitally in Sepia-brown. Frank Beken was born in Canterbury, England in 1880. His father Alfred was a chemist and photographer. In 1888 the family moved to the Isle of Wight. The company "Beken & Son Ltd." was born and Frank was soon seen afloat in a dinghy, photographing the fine vessels that sailed the local waters. He quickly designed his own camera, which was more suited to take photographs at sea: it was made to withstand sea-water and was held in both hands, the shutter being fired by biting a rubber ball gripped tightly between the teeth. The beauty and splendour of sail has been captured by the lenses of the Beken family since those early days.

Roux.- Innendeckel braunfleckig, Ebd. etwas fleckig, Rücken mit Läsuren, insges. gutes Exemplar.# Rare original edition.- In 1925, the French playwright Roger Vitrac (1899-1952) and artist/director Antonin Artaud (1896-1948) were expelled from the surrealists by Andre Breton (1896-1966). Together, they conceived and established the Theatre Alfred-Jarry, named in honor of Alfred Jarry (1873-1907) author of Ubu trilogy and inventor of pataphysics. The theater presented radically innovative productions over four seasons, from 1926 to 1929.- The present rare original edition offers an overview of the coming season (which was never realized). To illustrate the pamphlet, they hired Romanian photographer Eli Lotar (born Eliazar Lotar Teodoresco, 1905-1969) who prepared nine photomontages, superimposing multiple posed images of the actress Josette Lusson, Vitrac, and Artaud. These are not scenes from a particular play but images directed by Artaud from his imagination. Illustrated wrappers by G. L. Roux.- Pastedown brownspotted, cover slightly stained, spine with blemishes, all in all good copy.# Rare edition originale de cette publication polemique par les 2 directeurs du Theatre Alfred Jarry.

Cree en 1926, le theatre Alfred Jarry perdura jusqu'en 1930 et connut plus. dissensions avec les surrealistes de Breton.

        The Writings of William Blake. Edited in Three Volumes by Geoffrey Keynes

      London: Nonesuch Press, 1925. London: Nonesuch Press, 1925. Three quarto volumes. xviii, 364; vii, 397; vii, 430pp. One of 1500 copies printed on handmade paper. The complete text of Blake's known writings along with the variant readings. With an opening frontispiece photogravure of Blake's death mask by Emery Walker and sixty collotype plates of Blake's drawings and paintings to illustrate the poems. In A History of the Nonesuch Press, John Dreyfus writes that Francis Meynell regarded this set "as one of the two 'most useful and generally creditable of Nonesuch publications' -- the other being the seven-volume Shakespeare which came later." Bound in quarter vellum and marbled paper, gilt-titled to spines. This copy has been protected in plain dust wrappers printed with "Blake" and the volume numerals to the spines. The dust wrappers have additional mylar protecting the paper. Corners slightly bumped, dust wrappers lightly toned to spines, and with a few spots to the front panel of the dust wrapper for volume one, else a fine set. A pencil note to the front endpaper from the legendary bookseller Herman Cohen of the Chiswick Book Shop indicates that this is the only dust wrapper he had ever seen; no indication of a dust wrapper is recorded in the bibliography. Below that, Cohen has written, "Bruce Rogers's best friend in England." With the bookplate of A. T. Bartholomew, noted Cambridge University librarian and bibliographer, and close friend of both Geoffrey Keynes and Bruce Rogers, to the front pastedown of each volume.

        AN AMERICAN TRAGEDY

      New York:: Boni & Liveright,, 1925.. New York:: Boni & Liveright,. 1925. First edition. Two volumes. This trade edition preceded the limited edition by a year and is, in our experience, much scarcer in nice condition then the limited edition. One of Dreiser's most acclaimed books, made into a film in 1931 under this title and in 1951 as "A Place in the Sun" with Montgomery Clift, Elizabeth Taylor and Shelley Wintrers. A Haycraft-Queen title and on the Time 100 list. The story is based on a notorious 1906 criminal case involving the summertime discovery by resort owners in upstate New York of an overturned boat and the body of 20-year-old Grace Brown. Although he claimed her death was accidental, Chester Gillette was convicted of killing Brown. It was a murder trial that drew international attention, especially when Brown's love letters to Gillette were read in court. Dreiser saved newspaper clippings about the case and studied it closely, eventually basing Clyde Griffiths on Chester Gillette and deliberately giving him the same initials. (Wikipedia) The books themselves are very fine and bright, and the dust jackets are also much nicer than usually found. The jacket on the first volume has had minor repair to fill in a chip at the base of the spine and shows a few darkened spots on front cover. Still scarce in decent jackets and the original paper board slipcase with label on front. The slipcase show some wear and minor repair but is still quite good.

        SPANISH AND PORTUGUESE BULL-FIGHTING [Cover Title]

      (London): , [ca. 1925?] (London), [ca. 1925?]. Hardcover. Very Good. Oblong 4to. cloth-bound album. 25 x 36cm. 103 original photographs, most (92) approx. 3.5 x 5.5" with remaining 7 x 9.5". Almost all images accompanied by typed detailed captions. SIGNED by Reynold's to front pastedown. Covers rather rubbed and wrinkled. Else sound and internally fine. Very good overall. An excellent annotated album of bull-fighting by a noted writer. Reynolds, a British journalist, was the author of three books of travel: FROM THE IVORY COAST TO THE CAMEROONS (1929), BY DESERT WAYS TO INDIAN SNOWS (1932), and AFRICAN PASSAGE (1935). Most images taken by Reynolds (with his stamp and penned comments to verso of many pictures). Subjects encompass the totality of Tauromaquia: from the selection of the bulls and the opening processions to the spectacle of the ring. Numerous action shots, including several gorings. The images primarily show the matadors and toreadors: Maera, Joselito, Cojida, and Nino de Palma - said to be the model for Pedro Romero in THE SUN ALSO RISES. With Reynolds' concise but informative typed captions, an engaging portrait of the culture and sport of bullfighting we suspect was a intended for eventual publication.

        MEMORIES OF A LIFE SPENT BETWEEN THE BREAD AND THE FISHES.

      No publisher. NP. - ND (c.1925). Small 4to. (170 x 225mm). Pp38. Typescript with 7 actual photographs. Green cloth with gilt title to upper board. Inner hinge tender but very good. Memories of fishing in Berkshire and on the Thames. Mostly for pike (The author's largest weighed 27lb.), but including a chapter on perch, one on Thames trout, and one on sea fishing in Cornwall. "The best season I ever had or hope for was the hot summer of 1921. I had the most wonderful luck with Thames trout; for the first week I came home with a fish every evening, six in the week, weighing 24lbs." He went on to finish the season with twelve trout weighing 47lbs. "This book is well bound, and printed on beautiful paper. I should imagine it was issued for private circulation only. The type is double spaced and printed on one side of each page only; and the first-class reproductions of photographs of fish and tackles are, to my way of thinking, the hallmarkof good production." (O.M. Reed in Angling, April 1950). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Great Gatsby

      New York: Charles Scribners, 1925. First edition, first state with "chatter" p.60, "northern" p.119, "sick in tired" p.205, and "Union Street station" p. 211. Octavo, original dark green cloth. In fine condition, with the gilt lettering to the spine, nice and bright. With a Scribner's "compliments of the author" slip laid in. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional copy.In 1922, Fitzgerald announced his decision to write "something new--something extraordinary and beautiful and simple and intricately patterned." That extraordinary, beautiful, intricately patterned, and above all, simple novel became The Great Gatsby, arguably Fitzgerald's finest work and certainly the book for which he is best known. A portrait of the Jazz Age in all of its decadence and excess, Gatsby captured the spirit of the author's generation and earned itself a permanent place in American mythology. Cyril Connolly called The Great Gatsby one of the half dozen best American novels: "Gatsby remains a prose poem of delight and sadness which has by now introduced two generations to the romance of America, as Huckleberry Finn and Leaves of Grass introduced those before it" (Modern Movement 48).
