        Principia Mathematica

      Cambridge: Cambridge University Press,, 1925–27. 3 volumes, octavo. Original publisher's dark blue cloth, spines lettered in gilt, cream endpapers. Ownership inscriptions dated December 1932 on front free endpapers. A little very light rubbing to extremities, an excellent set. Second edition. The first edition of Principia mathematica, the greatest single contribution to symbolic logic for the time, appeared in 1910–13 in a lopsided publication: 750 copies of the first volume in 1910; only 500 each of the later two volumes. The revisions and additions of the second edition, introducing a new system of logic influenced by both Wittgenstein and Frank Ramsey, were produced solely by Russell. The set has become harder to find complete as first volumes from it are often pilfered to make up defective sets of the first edition.

        A Journey to Alaska in the Year 1868: Being a Diary of the Late Emil Teichmann

      Kensington: Cayme Press, 1925. First Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall Very Good. Copy 91 of only 100 copies printed. 272 pp, 20 X16 cm, with frontis portrait, 2 maps, and many sketches by the author. Original cloth binding with leather spine label; top edge gilt. Fore edge of boards rubbed, mild foxing to both front and rear endpapers. Binding tight, contents clean. Teichmann was sent to Alaska in 1868 (just after it became an American territory) to protect the interests of his employers, J.M. Oppenheim and Company, who had negotiated a lucrative contract for Alaskan furs with the Russian American Fur Company. He was situated in Sitka, and much of the diary provides a lively and detailed account of the area and the commercial and recreational activities and cultural interactions of the region's potent multinational mix of prospectors, traders, settlers, speculators, and native peoples. There is also much detail on the journey up the coast from San Francisco and through the Inside Passage, with accounts of the settlements visited along the way.

The primary colors used throughout the text are red, blue, and gold. Sumptuously bound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe in red morocco with green onlays and elaborate gilt decoration on the covers and spine. The title is stamped in gilt and wraps around the cover as a border. On the back cover, in the same fashion, is a quote from the text: "Love your trade, however humble, & find in it refreshment." This sentiment is reflected in the time and care that have been taken in the creation of this miniature masterpiece. Endpapers are blue silk, and the book closes with two clasps. Housed in a red morocco box decorated with gilt borders. Blue velvet lining of the box shows some minor discoloration, and the box is rubbed on the edges of the spine and fore-edge.

        Augustan Book Of Modern Poetry Presentation binding inscribed & signed as Xmas gift by Robert Graves

      London: Ernest Benn , 1925. First printing. Leather Bound Presentation. Rare contemporary fine leather binding of a unique collection of the Augustan series poets, as published by Ernest Benn. Pages uniform, edges neatly cut & neatly decorated in gilt all round. Green leather hard covers decorated to fore with gilt emblems of Celtic art nouvea style. Presumed to have been specially bound by Graves for presentation in Christmas 1925, as his inscription is dated then. The recipient is not named, but he says "Love from", so presumed to be either his parents or one of his current "muses", his wife Nancy, or new mistress Laura Riding. His ink inscription reads: "With best picnic wishes from Robert Graves", so the latter is more likely, and he had just met Riding that year, and picnics were his poetic playgrounds. The signature is bold and clear (see photo). Only a few months after this book was presented, early in 1926, Laura Riding moved in with Robert and Nancy Graves at their home in London. However, the bitter love triangle soon resulted in Robert and Laura leaving for Majorca in 1927, where they formed a soon-to-be famous new literary partnership. This book opens with 23 of Graves' poems, including the earliest form of "A Crusader", the poem later known as "The Return". The next section contains 12 of Edith Sitwell's poems (who had recently become a good friend of Robert Graves), ending with a Note on "The Little Ghost Who Died For Love". Humbert Wolfe's humorous collection of 34 poems follows. Frederick William Harvey's section contains 31 of his poems, including the classic "Ducks". The next section contains 21 of WJ Turner's poems. Then there are 21 poems of Edmund Blunden, two of which were only previously seen in The London Mercury newspaper. Hilaire Belloc's section has 19 poems. GK Chesterton then has 15 poems. Then follows the title page for Walter de la Mare's collection of 29 poems, stating Ernest Benn as the publisher of THE AUGUSTAN BOOKS OF MODERN POETRY. This collection of 9 prestigious poets in the series, the sheets of Ernest Benn's publications having been gathered, cut, gilt-coated and professionally bound into this rare, probably unique leather volume. This book was probably never issued for public purchase as Robert Graves, the opening poet, signed and presented it himself. His "love" for the recipient must havemade this a rather special Christmas gift in 1925. As for the condition: the interior is fine and almost as new; the exterior shows wear at the spine (gilt titles still readable), with some slight cracking starting at one folding edge. Some green on leather has sun-faded to brown. Binding still tight. No pages turned. No other ink markings. THIS VALUABLE BOOK WILL BE SENT BY SECURE POSTAGE, FULLY INSURED AS PAID FOR BY THE CUSTOMER. POA DEPENDING ON LOCATION.

Color frontispiece (included in pagination) , with tissue guard, and color illustrations (fifteen full-pageincluding frontis and tp). Original black cloth with color pictorial label on front cover. Color pictorial endpapers. Signed neatly by Anne Marie O'Connor 1929 on "This is the Book of-" page. If you hold the book's leaves at an angle to the light you can just see a few spots where the slick coating has slightly dulled. Minor crease at the tip of the front end paper and short tape repair. Very light foxing to blank eps and a few leaves with light aging to edges. All in all it is about as close to perfect as you can get. A truly outstanding example. Large quarto (13.9125 x 11.4375 inches). "Not until 1920 did [Parrish] agree to illustrate what was to become one of the most valuable children's books ever published, Louise Saunders's Knave of Hearts. Saunders was the wife of Maxwell Perkins, the editor of Scribner's. They summered in Cornish, New Hampshire, and were friends with the Parrishes. In a letter to J. H. Chapin of Scribner's, Parrish wrote on October 24, 1920: 'The reason I wanted to illustrate the Knave of Hearts was on account of the bully opportunity it gives for a very good time making the pictures. Imagination could run riot, not bound down by the period, just good fun and all sorts of things. You must understand all this layout to be in gorgeous color. The landscapes back of the figures in the cover lining-a very beautiful affair illuminated by a golden late afternoon sun: castles, waterfall, rocks and mountains.' Parris relished working three years on the twenty-six paintings for the Knave of Hearts. He built an elaborate castle model in his fully equipped workroom to use in the illustrations for the book...Many of the fixtures in the illustrations show handcrafted items from the Parrish household, such as elaborate hinges and a wonderful clocklike affair...that Parrish had built to let him know when the main house ran out of well water...Knave of Hearts, published in October 1925, was printed in rich colors on heavy coated paper. The illustrations were the highest quality reproductions that could be printed" (Alma Gilbert, Maxfield Parrish: The Masterworks, pp. 49-52). Ludwig, p. 206." .

      London: Chatto and Windus,, 1925. Octavo. Original orange cloth, printed paper label to spine. With the supplied dust jacket. Some minor spotting to fore edge, terminal leaves lightly browned, spine faded title label tanned and rubbed but a very nice copy in the dust jacket with a couple of tears and a small chip to the lower panel. First edition, first impression, hardback issue. With the author's signed presentation inscription to the front free endpaper, "For my dear George 'Conrad', with my admiration & gratitude. Joe. Aug. 20 1925". George Hayes (1888-1967), then a noted young Shakespearean actor, took the leading part of Ackerley's alter ego, Captain Conrad, in the first production on 5 July 1925, a Sunday night performance at the Royal Court Theatre under the aegis of Phyllis Whitworth's Three Hundred Club. Others in the cast included the actors Raymond Massey and Carleton Hobbs, and the designer James Whale, future director of The Bride of Frankenstein, while the audience included Hugh Walpole, T. E. Lawrence, John Lehmann and Siegfried Sassoon. Presenting the play under club conditions was a well-established way of evading the need for the Lord Chamberlain's licence, and necessary for Ackerley's daring work, the first twentieth-century play produced upon the London or Broadway stage to deal with homosexual desire.

        Der Prozess (The Trial)

      Berlin, Verlag Die Schmiede. 1925, 1925. First Edition in German. 8vo. Fine in publisher's dark green cloth, very minor edgewear. In a fabulously fragile black, white and blue dust-wrapper with very minor edgewear and chipping and a 1.5cm triangle of loss to the base of the spine just below three small holes. The front and rear panels are robust and bright but the spine panel is toned and dry. Two items of publisher's promotional material are loosely inserted. Internally bright and fresh. A major highspot, particularly scarce in a wrapper. This particular novel can be seen on a myriad of different levels, superficially as a cautionary tale of beaurocracy run amok, but also as a sensitive investigation into the manner in which individuals have to fight to retain (or even attain) their own sense of identity and destiny in the midst of a universe which is, largely (well, pretty much completely if you happen to be a bookdealer), absurd and insane. A fabulously good copy of a very important work from an author now widely considered to by one of the most original and influential fiction writers of the twentieth century.

      Paris: Editions Artistiques de Paris. ca. 1925-1935. Paperback. Very Good. Softcover quartos, each printed in color with truly incredible photographs and illustrations from the beginning of the Paul Derval era, which featured his infamous "small nude women" in elaborate costuming. Several of the volumes prominently feature Josephine Baker, whose banana skirt and strip tease routine caused a sensation amidst the Parisian fascination with negritude in the 1920s. Though Baker&#39;s success did not extend to the Unites States, she was the first African American female to star in a major motion picture,&#39; Zouzou&#39;, to integrate an American concert hall, and to become a world-famous entertainer. The programs are all in very good or better condition, several with charming die-cut cover windows, others housed in original glassine. As evidenced by the photographs, these are truly exquisite items from the peak of Paris Music Halls and 20s glamour. Lot includes: La Revue des Folies Bergere- Premier, Second, Troisieme, Quatrieme, Cinquieme, Sixieme, and Septieme Albums (1923-1929); Paris- Beautes au Music-Hall (c. 1926) & Paris Beautes Deuxieme Album (1927); Premier Album de Souvenirs des Music Halls de Paris (c. 1925); Folies Bergeres: La Revue d&#39;Amour (1933); Bal du Moulin Rouge (c. 1920); Tout Paris au Casino de Paris (c. 1928); Montmartre (ca. 1926).

The Exposition Internationale des Arts Dcoratifs et Industriels Modernes was a World&#39;s fair held in Paris, France from April to October 1925. The term Art Deco was derived by shortening the words Arts Dcoratifs in the title of this exposition. Artistic creation in the annes folles in France is marked by this event, when on this occasion many ideas of the international avant-garde in the fields of architecture and applied arts were brought together. Condition: Unbound. There is mild wear to the extremities, including mild bumping. Internally the pages are clean, with very slight browning to the page edges, and the very occasional handling mark. Overall the condition is fair due to missing plates, but otherwise very good indeed..
