        Autograph Manuscript Signed / Engraved Portrait

      The dean of Columbia Law School went on to serve as attorney general under Coolidge before joining the U.S. Supreme Court, as associate justice (1925-41) and chief justice (1941-46). Partly-printed AMS, 4pp, 5 3/4" X 9¼", Englewood, NJ, 1913 November 24. Very good. "Who's Who in America" questionnaire, filled out entirely in Stone's hand, starting with full name, occupation, address, birthdate, and going into education, marital status, professional associations, clubs, etc. Most printed questions bear brief responses, and a few (namely military record and list of books written) did not apply and were left blank. Truly unique, a fascinating and exceptionally early biographical record by the future chief justice. Accompanied by a striking 6" X 8" steel engraving of Stone. Fine.

        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).

        Sangschaw; together with Penny Wheep

      Edinburgh & London: William Blackwood and Sons, 1925; 1926. Two octavo volumes. First edition of the Scottish poet Hugh M'Diarmid's first collection of poetry, in the second binding, together with a first edition of his second book. Hugh M'Diarmid, or MacDiarmid, as it is more commonly written, was the pen name of Christopher Murray Grieve. MacDiarmid was the leading light of the Scottish Literary Renaissance that occurred in the first half of the twentieth century. He developed and wrote in a synthetic Scots vernacular that incorporated elements of many regional dialects and integrated archaic words and phrases used by Scotland's late medieval poets. Scots was fading from common and literary use and was most often only used in poetry to evoke a sense of the past; instead, MacDiarmid sought to update and revolutionize the language, making it relevant to the modern era. He also believed that the Scottish psyche could not be expressed in English alone, and as a result, he wanted to create a national voice. Sangschaw contains MacDiarmid's first Scots lyric, The Watergaw, and extensive glossaries follow the poems in both volumes. Both bound in blue cloth, with the original light blue dust wrappers lettered in black. Dust wrappers are toned to spines and margins of the panels, and each has a stray mark to the front panel. Penny Wheep has a short, closed tear to the front panel, else both are in fine condition.

      New York: Dingwall Rock Limited, 1925. - "Such As It Is It Is Terribly, Terribly Sincere And Is I Think My Best Book" (Harry Clarke)[CLARKE, Harry, illustrator]. GOETHE, [Johann Wolfgang von]. Faust. From the German by John Anster. Illustrated by Harry Clarke. New York: Dingwall Rock Limited, n.d. [1925].First American edition, limited to 1,000 copies for the United States and signed by the artist, this being copy no. 81. Quarto (10 1/2 x 8 1/4 inches; 266 x 208 mm.). 253, [1], [1, tail-piece], [1, blank] pp. Eight color plates, fourteen black and white plates (six in line and eight in line and wash lithographed in two printings), and sixty-three line drawings in the text. Pictorial endpapers.Original quarter vellum over gray boards. Original printed dust jacket. Minima dust soiling to vellum, very slight rubbing to corners, otherwise a fine copy in a very good dust jacket, slightly chipped at head and tail of spine. Housed in the publisher's (rather worn) cardboard slipcase.Faust was published at the end of October 1925. "The book was handsomely produced in a signed and numbered edition, limited to two thousand copies of which one thousand were for sale in America. The book was printed on Van Gelder handmade paper and quarter bound in vellum at two guineas. Only the line drawings are satisfactorily reproduced; in this edition the printers’ attempts to reproduce the fine wash and line illustrations by photogravure and the often murky watercolours by process colour do not do justice to the originals. Many of the original drawings for head and tailpieces are heightened with gold and silver ink, but these were printed only in black and white. Reviews of Faust were mixed" (Bowe, p. 81).From Dorothy Richardson’s review in the Irish Times (quoted in Bowe, pp. 81-82): "There is from first to last in these pictures no sunlight, but rather light filtered, coming as through a glass darkly. And it is this quality of filtered light, helping to make him so interesting a commentator on Goethe’s tale that is one of the distinctive charms of Mr. Clarke’s work." From AE’s review in The Irish Statesman (quoted in Bowe, pp. 82-84): "Wherever the imagination of Goethe conjures up the macabre, the witch, the imp and the devil Clarke will add a shudder which is congruous with the drama The collector will buy this volume because of Harry Clarke’s part in it, not because of Goethe’s part in it Nothing in these drawings represents anything in the visible world; all come from that dread mid-world or purgatory of the soul where forms change on the instant by evil or beautiful imagination, where the human image becomes bloated and monstruous [sic] by reason of lust or hate, the buttocks become like those of fat swine, and thoughts crawl like loathsome and puffy worms out of their cells in the skull. Shapeless things gleam with the eye of snake or hog, and in the midst of all this a faint and fragile Margaret moves, like a helpless innocence or frightened faun, and at other times she herself becomes sinister because of the sorcery which assails her Clarke’s fertility of invention is endless. It is shown in a multitude of designs less elaborate that the page plates, but no less intense.""Harry himself wrote to [Thomas] Bodkin during the week of publication, ‘Am sending you a copy and hope you will not hate it. Such as it is it is terribly, terribly sincere and is I think my best book— ‘tis horrid I know—in fact I had to laugh at my creations or I would have become morbid—I think I shall illustrate no more ’" (Bowe, p. 82).Bowe, p. 150, no. 10.

        Winston Churchill on the cover of TIME Magazine, 11 May 1925, Vol.V. No.19

      236 East 39th Street, New York: TIME, Incorporated, 1925. 1st Edition. Paperback. Very good. In the 1920s Churchill appeared twice on the cover of TIME Magazine - in this 11 May 1925 issue and in the 14 April 1923 issue. TIME was then a new publication with small circulation, having begun publication just 25 months earlier in March 1923. This issue is of course is a neat piece of history. But more to the point for collectors, it is rare prize among Churchill magazine covers. The years surrounding 1925 were momentous and tumultuous for Churchill. In 1922 Churchill lost his Dundee seat in Parliament, only to rejoin the conservatives in 1924 after a 20-year stint as a Liberal. He was promptly re-elected to Parliament in 1924 and made Chancellor of the Exchequer. The front cover caption reads: "CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER At the annual Armageddon". The article on pages 7-8 discusses Churchill "battling for his maiden budget" and championing Britain's return to the gold standard, which was restored in April 1925, earning Churchill the voluble opposition of dissenters such as John Maynard Keynes. This copy is in very good condition overall. The covers remain firmly attached with no losses and the staples are not rusted. The all important front cover is clean and bright with only very mild wear and a .25 inch strip of soiling confined to the bottom edge. The rear cover is creased at the upper corner and snows a bit of edgewear at the bottom edge, but is clean and complete. Pages 14-32 show some loss at the upper corner, but this does not affect any text. The contents are otherwise clean and complete with mild age-toning. A clean and substantially intact copy of an extravagantly rare Churchill cover.

        La Crise Mondiale (The World Crisis), inscribed and dated by Churchill to Charles Montag

      Paris: Payot, 1925. First French language edition. Hardcover. Near fine. This is the first French edition of Churchill's acclaimed history of World War I in four volumes, finely bound, inscribed and dated by Churchill in Volume I to his longtime friend and painting companion Charles Montag (1880-1956).  The inked inscription in five lines on the Volume I first free endpaper reads:  "To / Charles Montag / from / Winston S. Churchill / 1946".  Churchill discovered painting during the First World War.  May 1915 saw Churchill scapegoated for failure in the Dardanelles and slaughter at Gallipoli and forced from the Admiralty.  By November Churchill was serving at the Front, leading a battalion in the trenches.  But during the summer of 1915, as he wrestled with depression and decisions, he rented Hoe Farm in Surrey, which he frequented with his wife and three children. There, one day in June, Churchill noticed his brother's wife sketching in watercolors and impulsively borrowed her brush. He swiftly found solace in painting, which would serve as a beloved source of release and renewal for the rest of his long life.  Charles Montag shared and supported Churchill's passion.  Montag was a Swiss painter and art dealer who met Churchill in 1915, soon after Churchill began painting.  Montag became a lifelong friend and compagnon d'art for nearly four decades, painting with Churchill from the south of France to Lake Como to Marrakech.  More than just a companion, Montag also served as a mentor, supporter, and technical advisor.  In 1915, it was Montag who took Churchill "round the galleries of Paris" and introduced him to the work of the impressionists.  In 1921, Montag arranged an exhibition of Churchill's paintings at the presitgious Galerie Druet in the rue Royale, shown under the pseudonym "Charles Morin".  Letters from Churchill to his wife testify that, over the years, Montag would "comment & guide" Churchill's painting, an influence Churchill regarded positively: "he has a vast knowledge and one cannot paint in his presence without learning."  In 1946 Montag helped arrange for Churchill to stay at Chateau Choisi on the shores of Lake Geneva to paint, work on his war memoirs, and prepare for his famous speech of 19 September promoting a United Europe.  It was this speech that lent bold impetus to formation of what would eventually become the European Union, with Churchill an early, ardent, and vital advocate of pan-European integration.  Churchill was known, on occasion, to gift finely bound and inscribed copies of his books to friends who hosted him on his trips.  Given the inscription date it seems likely that this finely bound set in his friend's preferred language was such a gift.  That this set is inscribed in the French edition of The World Crisis is particularly significant; it was because of the First World War that Churchill began to paint and met Montag.  Taken together, the gift and the time span the two wars that had torn Europe apart, the beginning of the effort that would knit Europe together, and a friendship and pastime that sustained Churchill during all of these momentous events.  The four volumes of the French edition were published between 1925 and 1931.  The set is beautifully bound in red half morocco over crimson cloth boards.  The binding features raised spine bands, gilt spine lettering, black rules bordering all spine bands and transitions, beautifully marbled endpapers, and gilt top edge.  The original card wrappers are preserved, bound in at the rear of each volume.  Overall condition is near fine plus.  The bindings remain bright and clean with no fading or deterioration of the leather and virtually no wear.  There are no previous ownership markings apart from the author's inscription.  The inscribed volume I shows only very light spotting confined to the prelims and page edges and some inevitable age toning to the contents, particularly the page edges.  In Volumes II - IV, very light spotting appears confined to page edges and age-toning is mild.

      1925. Original Wraps. Very Good. Three off prints on Theory of Numbers: Théorie Des Nombres – Sur les nombres de Fermat. Comptes rendus des séances de l’Académie des Sciences, t. 180, p. 799, séance du 16 mars 1925 (4to off print numbered p.1-2.); Sur Le Nombre N= 1/9 (1023 – 1) 8vo. 3, [1]p. ; Sur Les Nombres De Fermat. Fn= 22n + 1. 8vo. 5, [3]p. Plus approximately 65 pages of manuscript notes in French with calculations. The majority of the manuscript pages appear to deal with quadratic forms in Leonard Dickson’s - Studies in the theory of numbers. (1930), which contains numerous original investigations in the theory of quadratic forms in three or four variables. In Dickson’s earlier work on the History of the Theory of Numbers (1919-23) he provided little interpretation and made no attempt to contextualize the results being described. It is probably with this background that Kraitchik devoted much of the manuscript sheets to Dickson’s work. Other manuscript notes dealing with other equations from Euler “Continuous la table” dated March to December, 1939. The last group of manuscript pages in 8vo deal with equations from a publication of Landar(sic) Backman dated November 1931 and May 1938. There are a few loose sheets with calculations but no identification. These may be sheets used to make rough calculations. Together this manuscript collection and off prints offer a very good example of Kraitchik’s thinking in regards the theory of numbers. Although Kraitchik is often thought of in relation to Recreational Mathematics, he really spent considerable time with the Theory of Numbers. The present collection of 3 off prints and manuscript sheets most of which are on square lined sheets is thus quite rare and significant for this noted 20th century mathematician.

      1925. Original Wraps. Very Good. Three off prints on Theory of Numbers: Théorie Des Nombres – Sur les nombres de Fermat. Comptes rendus des séances de l’Académie des Sciences, t. 180, p. 799, séance du 16 mars 1925 (4to off print numbered p.1-2.); Sur Le Nombre N= 1/9 (1023 – 1) 8vo. 3, [1]p. ; Sur Les Nombres De Fermat. Fn= 22n + 1. 8vo. 5, [3]p. Plus approximately 65 pages of manuscript notes in French with calculations. The majority of the manuscript pages appear to deal with quadratic forms in Leonard Dickson’s - Studies in the theory of numbers. (1930), which contains numerous original investigations in the theory of quadratic forms in three or four variables. In Dickson’s earlier work on the History of the Theory of Numbers (1919-23) he provided little interpretation and made no attempt to contextualize the results being described. It is probably with this background that Kraitchik devoted much of the manuscript sheets to Dickson’s work. Other manuscript notes dealing with other equations from Euler “Continuous la table” dated March to December, 1939. The last group of manuscript pages in 8vo deal with equations from a publication of Landar(sic) Backman dated November 1931 and May 1938. There are a few loose sheets with calculations but no identification. These may be sheets used to make rough calculations. Together this manuscript collection and off prints offer a very good example of Kraitchik’s thinking in regards the theory of numbers. Although Kraitchik is often thought of in relation to Recreational Mathematics, he really spent considerable time with the Theory of Numbers. The present collection of 3 off prints and manuscript sheets most of which are on square lined sheets is thus quite rare and significant for this noted 20th century mathematician.
