Hurley was the photographer on the 'Endurance'. Hurley, an absolutely superb photographer, went South with both Shackleton and Mawson. Hurley raised expedition photography to a new level. He did not make routine photos of explorers posing in the snow. Instead, he often focused on the snow itself, or on grim snowscapes that became beautiful in his compositions. These scenic studies he integrated into the documentation of the expedition. Spence 615, Renard 768, Conrad p.205. Covers worn, bumped, marked and faded, small piece missing from top of spine and top corner., very small tear on map between pages 122 and 123. A very clean, tight copy of this very scarce title.

        The Lady Of The Shroud

      London: Rider and Co.. VG+/VG-. 1925. 1st Thus UK. Hardcover; 1st Printing. 13, 14, 24, 30. Early reprint, published in 1925 according to Dalby. The original was published by Heinemann in 1909. With the rare original dustjacket in muted, soft colors with the macabre picture of a damsel in her shroud and the hand of 'something' (maybe human, maybe not) sneaking up on her at the edge of the front panel illustration. The book is bound in green cloth with black printing and decoration. It is straight and clean with no handwriting in it; the paper is age-tanned, a bit brittle-feeling to me, and has a few very small edge tears to end pages, and there is some light edgewear to the binding and to the spine ends. The dustjacket is priced on the front panel, and has lovely colors in the illustrations on the front and spine, blurbs for Stoker's other books on the back panel, and ads for an inspirational series and 'mental tonics' on the flaps. It has some light handling smudges and some edge chips, most noticeably at the spine ends. Protected in a removable clear mylar cover now. This is a scarce book, particularly in its dustjacket. ; 7-1/8" tall x 4-3/4" wide; 355 + ads pages .

        1925 NE Telephone and Telegraph Inventory and Property Appraisal w/many Photographs, State of New Hampshire

      NE Telephone and Telegraph NE Telephone and Telegraph, 1925. First Edition. Hard Cover. An archive of over 110 7 1/2 x 11 inch photographs mounted on linen, and enclosed in a binder with 2 screw posts. The binder is marked "Outside Plant - General Store and Garage Equipment - General Tools and Implements as Included in Inventory and Appraisal of Property New England Telephone and Telegraph Company State of New Hampshire as of April 1, 1925" The first category tab has a stamp on it marked "Exhibit No 14 New England Tel & Tel Co, New Hampshire P.S.C. No D. 964 Witness GK Manson". Major Mason organized the 401st Telegraph Battalion from the NE Tel and Telegraph Company and was involved in analysis of the Transatlantic Cable (see Circuits of Victory by Lavine). An expert in the legal field indicated that this book was 'an exhibit compiled for use in a state rate case - a substantial portion of which consisted of proving that the physical plant included in the company’s ‘rate base’ [on which it was allowed to earn its ‘fair return’] was ‘used and useful’ and fairly valued.' The binder is a fascinating view into the state of the art in telephone/telegraph cabling and the outside plant in 1925. Sections include Pole Lines, Exchange Poles, Toll Poles, Aerial Cable, Exchange Aerial Cable, Toll Aerial Cable, Exch. Aerial Wire, Toll Aerial Wire, UG Conduit, UG Cable, Exch UG Cable, Toll UG Cable, Motor Vehicles (this section empty), Other Accounts, Submarine Cable, GNL Tools and Implements. Each section has large format (7 ¾ x 11") photographs mounted on linen documenting in visual form representative examples of the type of inventory documented in summary form on pages marked (for example) "Exchange Pole Lines Summary - Reproduction Cost - Fully Owned and Jointly Owned".Over 110 photographs total, most with typed explanations of the photograph at the bottom. Possibly a unique survival, archives of this nature are certainly scarce on the market, and worthy of study and preservation. While individual photographs are found occasionally, groupings like this which tell a story larger than the sum of their parts are quite uncommon. A fine addition to any telecommunications collection. Very Good.

        [French Manuscript on the Jacquard Loom] THÉORIE DE TESSAGE [“Theory of Weaving;” spine title] / COURS DE TISSAGE [“Course on Weaving;” heading first page]

      np [Lyon?]: np, 1925-1926. First Edition. Hardcover. Good +. Large folio (15.25" x 10.5"). Half-leather over brown cloth. Title gilt to spine with three fleur-de-lis elemtents, date, and "COUTURIER." Marbled endpapers. Binding good only. Leather well rubbed with some spotting to cloth. Corners bumped and worn through to boards. Splitting at top joint, but intact with hinges undamaged; overall sound. Internally very good with faint toning and occasional offsetting from materials laid and tipped in. Some elements apparently either perished or missing. Single library stamp to first page, else no other institutional markings. Calligraphic manuscript in French, black ink on unruled paper, with hundreds of hand-executed color diagrams and illustrations of weaving patterns, looms, punch card patterns, etc. Textile samples present throughout. Over 350 pages of manuscript to 179 leaves, two small sections of printed materials additionally bound in and assorted related ephemera laid in (several of which suggest Lyon as likely origin). A technical but visually striking dissertation submitted as likely final requirement in a course of study on the Jacquard loom. Jacquard's invention, originally designed in 1801, vastly simplified and improved the production of fabrics and textiles throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries. In addition, its use of punch cards to control the machine represents an important development in the history of computing as the loom's cards prefigure the later use of similar punch cards in early computers. The calligraphic portions of the text include both description and analysis of the operation of the loom as well as textile design, all rendered in a lovely and skilled hand. The volume also include numerous punch card patterns, weaving designs (including more than two dozen swatches of the finished textiles, though at least as many apparently lost/missing), and technical drawings of the loom and its workings. These visual elements represent the most compelling aspect of the book: detailed, precise, and ornate, with a decidedly modern feel. A work with multiple points of interest: from fashion and design to science and engineering, with visual style that calls to mind both abstract and conceptual art.

        INQUISICIONES. Signed

      Buenos Aires: Proa, imprenta El Inca, 1925 Inscribed to the great Spanish author Ramón Gomez de la Serna First edition. 8vo. A very good or better example in the original light blue wrappers - name erasure on the ffe. [Helft p.28; Becco 50], "Para el amigo y colega Ramón Gomez de la Serna / con el agradecimiento de / Jorge Luis Borges. Buenos Aires 1925" [For the friend & colleague Ramon Gomez of the Serna, with the gratefulness of Jorge Luis Borges. Buenos Aires 1925]. This is Borges' first collection of essays. The publication was limited to 500 copies & it was never reissued. Inquisiciones already contains the seminal concerns that Borges would follow for the rest of his writing life. It was never reprinted, however Borges followed it with Otras Inquisiciones, his most important collection of essays. In Inquisiciones, Borges is firmly rooted in two traditions, both classic & modern. The first is Hispanic, from Quevedo "perfecto en las metáforas, en las antítesis, en la adjetivación, es decir, en aquellas disciplinas de la literatura cuya felicidad o malandanza es discernible por la inteligencia" (perfect in metaphores, in antithesis, in adjectivation, that is to say, in those disciplines of literature whose felicitous or erroneous usage is discernable by the in tellect), & Torre Villaruel to Unamuno, Herrera Reissig, & Ramón Gómez de la Serna & Cansinos Asséns. The second tradition is Anglo-Saxon, from Thomas Browne " un ensayo bastante malo, tal vez el primero que se escribió sobre él en idioma español". ( a rather bad essay - perhaps the first that was written about him in Spanish) [Autobiografía, p.80]) to Joyce, including the idealist philosophy of Berkeley. The Germanic tradition is also present with a translation of 3 poems: "Soy culpable de la españilización de los versos". (I am guilty of the Spanish translation of these verses). It is in "Examen de metáforas" where Borges manifests the formulation of his own rhetoric which governed his writing through his Ultraist years to his later wo rks. However years later he retracts this essay: "basta un solo buen verso no metafórico para probar que la metáfora no es un elemento esencial Otro (ensayo) casificaba las metáforas como si se pudiera prescindir sin problema de otros elementos poét icos, por ejemplo el ritmo y la música". (A single good verse without a metaphor is sufficient to prove that the metaphor is not an essential element. Another (essay) classified metaphors as if one could do away with other poetic elements without any problem, rhythm and music, for example). [Autobiografía, p.80]. An extraordinary Copy.. 1st Edition.

        [French Manuscript on the Jacquard Loom] THÉORIE DE TESSAGE [“Theory of Weaving;” spine title] / COURS DE TISSAGE [“Course on Weaving;” heading first page]

      np np [Lyon?]: np, 1925-1926. First Edition. Hardcover. Good +. Large folio (15.25" x 10.5"). Half-leather over brown cloth. Title gilt to spine with three fleur-de-lis elemtents, date, and "COUTURIER." Marbled endpapers. Binding good only. Leather well rubbed with some spotting to cloth. Corners bumped and worn through to boards. Splitting at top joint, but intact with hinges undamaged; overall sound. Internally very good with faint toning and occasional offsetting from materials laid and tipped in. Some elements apparently either perished or missing. Single library stamp to first page, else no other institutional markings. Calligraphic manuscript in French, black ink on unruled paper, with hundreds of hand-executed color diagrams and illustrations of weaving patterns, looms, punch card patterns, etc. Textile samples present throughout. Over 350 pages of manuscript to 179 leaves, two small sections of printed materials additionally bound in and assorted related ephemera laid in (several of which suggest Lyon as likely origin). A technical but visually striking dissertation submitted as likely final requirement in a course of study on the Jacquard loom. Jacquard's invention, originally designed in 1801, vastly simplified and improved the production of fabrics and textiles throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries. In addition, its use of punch cards to control the machine represents an important development in the history of computing as the loom's cards prefigure the later use of similar punch cards in early computers. The calligraphic portions of the text include both description and analysis of the operation of the loom as well as textile design, all rendered in a lovely and skilled hand. The volume also include numerous punch card patterns, weaving designs (including more than two dozen swatches of the finished textiles, though at least as many apparently lost/missing), and technical drawings of the loom and its workings. These visual elements represent the most compelling aspect of the book: detailed, precise, and ornate, with a decidedly modern feel. A work with multiple points of interest: from fashion and design to science and engineering, with visual style that calls to mind both abstract and conceptual art.

        The Leys Fortnightly, Vol. 49

      Cambridge: Severs. 1925. Lowry's first published appearances, written when he was fifteen years of age and a sophomore in high school. Lowry attended The Leys school in Cambridge, England from 1923-27 and in his second year at the school approached William Henry Balgarnie, one of the Masters at the school and in charge of The Leys Fortnightly, the school's magazine. (Balgarnie was later immortalized as the basis for the title character in James Hilton's Goodbye, Mr. Chips.) Despite the fact that normally only third and fourth year students published in the magazine, Lowry told Balgarnie he had some work that The Fortnightly might want to print. The first piece he submitted was a story entitled "The Light That Failed Not," and Balgarnie read and liked Lowry's piece enough to publish it; it was later voted the best story to appear in The Fortnightly during the year. At his teacher's suggestion, Lowry wrote under the pen-name "CAMEL," [Lowry's initials are C.M.L.], and on the basis of his first story he gained some degree of prestige at the school. He later contributed a poem, "Der Tag," and another story, "Travelling Light" to the magazine; all three pieces are included in this bound volume of all the issues of The Fortnightly published during the 1924-25 school year. Three quarter leather binding, with the school's coat of arms embossed on the front cover. Spine leather weathered; near fine in a custom quarter leather clamshell box. An attractive copy of an exceedingly scarce volume: enrollment at the school was probably on the order of about 300 students at that time, and relatively few of these could have been expected to purchase bound copies of the school magazine; at most a couple of hundred of these would have been produced, if that, and few will have survived the century. Woolmer C1-3. OCLC locates only four libraries holding copies. . First Edition. Hardcover.

        THE WORKS

      New York: Doubleday, Page & Company, 1925. The "Mandalay Edition.. 213 x 146 mm (8 3/8 x 5 3/4"). 26 volumes bound in 14. Recent dark blue highly polished morocco, covers with vaguely Art Deco gilt frame, raised bands decorated with stylized silver Greek key rolls, azure morocco labels, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. Stewart, p. 575. One leaf with two-inch tear into text with no loss, isolated mild foxing or other trivial imperfections, but IN VERY FINE CONDITION, the text clean and fresh throughout, and the bindings as new. One of Britain's best-known writers, Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) is most famous for his works portraying the lives of both natives and colonialists on the Indian subcontinent. An opponent of female suffrage and a staunch supporter of British imperialism, Kipling nonetheless had great sympathy for the traditions of India as well as the literary ability and desire to present it as a land of beauty and enchantment. He was born in Bombay, where his father ran a school of art, and he lived in India until the age of six. He was sent to school in England, but chose to return to the East at 18. His father had become director of the Lahore Museum in what is now Pakistan, and Rudyard became a journalist for the "Lahore Civil and Military Gazette." His first two collections of stories, "Plain Tales from the Hills" and "Soldiers Three," depict the lives of the British military in India; he proved to be a prolific author, writing novels, tales for children and adults, and many poems. Kipling's wife was American, and they lived for a time in Vermont, but from 1896 the couple settled in England. Among his many honors are a Nobel Prize (1907) and the Gold Medal of the Royal Society of Literature (1926), which had previously only been awarded to Scott, Meredith, and Hardy. According to Stewart, this edition was "printed from the types of volumes I-XXV of the Seven Seas edition," the deluxe set issued by Doubleday beginning in 1914. An additional volume, not found in the Seven Seas edition, is added here, a collection of biographical essays by various authors entitled "Around the World with Kipling." The recent unsigned bindings are American, executed with careful skill, and adventurous in their design, especially in their mixing of gold and silver ornamentation. (They also very probably cost more to execute than the price we're asking for the set.).

        Six Drawings by E. H. Shepard Illustrating Poems from When We Were Very Young

      London: Methuen, (c. 1925). Folio. (6)ff. Copy number one of twenty copies signed and numbered by the author, A. A. Milne, and the illustrator, E. H. Shepard, in pencil. When We Were Very Young was Milne's first collaboration with Shepard, and the first of the four Christopher Robin books. Each of Milne's poems is printed in calligraphic script and surrounded by a border of several vignettes by Shepard. The six poems selected are "Teddy Bear," featuring the first appearance of Milne's most famous character, Winnie-the-Pooh, "Happiness," "Hoppity," "Vespers," "Lines and Squares," and "The Kings Breakfast." The broadsides are printed on Japan paper, mounted on mat board, and protected with tissue guards. On the reverse of each is a small label bearing the title and publisher's information. The poems are elegantly presented and intended for framing, and as a result, it is likely that many of these sets were broken up. The mounted broadsides range in size from 12 3/4 by 9 3/4 inches to 20 by 15 3/4 inches. Loose in a gray portfolio. Title labels for the set are mounted to the inside flap and inside back panel of the portfolio, and a slip with additional labels for each of the drawings, intended to be adhered to the back board of a picture frame, is also tipped in on the inside back panel. Short, closed tear to margin of one mat, not affecting the broadside, boards soiled, else a fine set of these rare broadsides.

        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.
