        Hollis & Jamaica Estates: Vol. 7 of 29 Atlases of Insurance Maps for Queens

      Sanborn Map Company New York: Sanborn Map Company, 1925. hardcover. very good(-). Atlas. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Massive elephant folio. Decorative calligraphic titles, indices, and key maps. Contains a set of 90 maps along with changes recorded on paste-on correction slips through 1974. Quarter leather binding with gilt title on front and spine. This volume includes part of South Jamaica, the Long Island Railroad split of the Main Line and the Montauk Line, and a Queens neighborhood reference inset. The Sanborn map collection consists of a uniform series of large scale maps, dating from 1867 to the present depicting the commercial, industrial, and residential sections of some twelve thousand cities and towns in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The maps were designed to assist fire insurance agents in determining the degree of hazard associated with a particular property and therefore show the size, shape and construction of dwellings, commercial buildings, and factories as well as fire walls locations of windows and doors, sprinkler systems, and types of roofs. The maps also indicate widths and names of streets, property boundaries, building use, and house and block numbers. They show locations of water mains, giving their dimensions, and of fire alarm boxes and hydrants. Sanborn maps are an unrivaled source of information about the structure and use of buildings in American Cities. The collection includes some fifty thousand editions of fire insurance maps comprising an estimated seven hundred thousand individual sheets. The Library of Congress holdings represent the largest extant collection of maps produced by the Sanborn Map Company. The majority of the maps were acquired by the Library through copyright deposit, but the collection was substantially enriched in 1967 when the Bureau of the Census transferred to the Library of Congress a complete set. The 1,899 loose-leaf binders were particularly noteworthy because they included later editions than those previously acquired by the Library. The Bureau of the Census set of maps had been regularly updated by printed, paste-on corrections supplied by the Sanborn Map Company, whereas the Library of Congress copies were retained in the form in which they were copyrighted.

        Poor Cecco

      1925. first edition. Limited to 105 Copies Signed by the AuthorRACKHAM, Arthur, [illustrator]. BIANCO, Margery Williams. Poor Cecco. By Margery Williams Bianco. Author of "The Velveteen Rabbit." Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. New York: George H. Doran Company, [1925].First edition, deluxe large paper issue. One of 105 numbered copies signed by Margery Williams Bianco. Quarto. 175 pp. Seven full-page illustrations in color, mounted on white paper, and twenty-four drawings in black and white. Original parchment-backed light blue paper boards, navy blue lettering label on spine. Pictorial endpapers in pale blue on white. Top edge gilt, others uncut. One inch parchment split at top end of bottom joint not affecting joint integrity, short marginal tear to last blank. Upper hinge invisibly restored. Otherwise, a fine copy. The text, with the same illustrations by Rackham, also appeared in Good Housekeeping beginning in May 1925. No limited English edition was issued, and this title/edition is the rarest of Rackham illustrated books, and extremely scarce."The Velveteen Rabbit or How Toys Become Real was Margery Williams Bianco's first American work, and it remains her most famous. It became an instant classic and has remained so through numerous adaptations in children's theater as well as on radio, television and in the movies. After becoming a renowned author, Bianco wrote numerous other children's books, with her son becoming the namesake of one of them, 1925's Poor Cecco: The Wonderful Story of a Wonderful Wooden Dog Who Was the Jolliest Toy in the House Until He Went Out to Explore the World—a distinguished book that belies its somewhat priggish subtitle and is arguably better entitled than The Velveteen Rabbit to status as a classic. This lively adventure story, virtually a novel for children, is a brilliant exception to the sentimentality of Bianco's more famous book. Each of the many characters who populate the nursery toy cupboard is a distinct and amusing personality. Their interactions with each other and with the human, animal, and toy members of the world beyond it, whom they encounter on their quest for adventure/search for a lost friend, are delineated with understated humor. The relationship between the wooden dog Cecco, a natural leader, and Jensina, a highly independent and spirited wooden doll, is both subtle and funny. Superb illustrations by Arthur Rackham are a perfect complement to the narrative. While the publisher probably found it more practical to promote the shorter Velveteen Rabbit, Cecco's celebrated illustrator may have assured its survival in the catalogues of rare book dealers despite its undeserved literary obscurity. A return to more sober themes marks Bianco's other popular works, such as the same year's The Little Wooden Doll, illustrated by her daughter Pamela, in which the title character is badly mistreated by some children, but shown love and compassion by another child, which made her whole again." (Wikipedia)Latimore and Haskell, p. 59.

        Der Prozess. Roman.

      Berlin, Die Schmiede, 1925. Bound with the original printed wrappers (the original paper-binding), also the spine as well as the front part of the scarce original dust-jacket, in a very elegant private browninsh-black morocco binding in avantgarde 20'ies-style, with a circle of emerald green calf as title-label, with gilt title, to spine, the calf-circle continuing on to both boards, and a circle of bright red calf as author-lable, with author in gold, overlapping the lover part of the title-circle and also continuing on to both boards. Gilt super ex-libris to inside of front board. Binding signed in gold to inside of back board: Henning Jensen, gilding by Hagel Olsen. The original striped paper wrappers in wood-like pattern, with the blue and red title-label to front and cream and red title-label to spine, have been mounted. The remains of the original dust-jacket that has also been bound in, is slightly shaved at top and bottom and has been strengthened at the fore-edge. Internally very fine and clean. Fore- and bottom-edges uncut, top-edge stained blue (original staining).. First edition of Kafka's posthumously published magnum opus, his monumental work "The Trial", which counts as one of the most important works of fiction of the 20th century. "In December (of 1914) Kafka finished - once more, one hesitates to use this misleading word, for it never was difinitely completed - his second novel, "Der Prozess"/"The Trial". It was first published - again posthumpusly, again in an incomplete form and edited by Max Brod - in 1925, the year after Kafka's death. It is perhaps this novel which is most associated in the minds of the reading public with the notion of "Kafkaesque" (though the adjective is used liberally by those who have never read Kafka's work) for it begins with an arbitrary and meaningless arrest, and takes its protagonist through an intricate labyrinth of futile protocols. There is a clear connection between Kafka's state of mind when he began this novel and its content." (Murray, "Kafka", pp. 225-26)
