        Récit d'exploration de la rivière souterraine d'Aliou, dans l'Ariège, par Norbert Casteret.

      - 1 manuscrit autographe (brouillon) 30 In-4 vers 1925-1930 trace de trombone sur une page Manuscrit du spéléologue Norbert Casteret intitulé : "La Rivière d'Alios". Rare description circonstanciée de cette rivière souterraine qui se jette dans le torrent pyrénéen ariégeois le Salat, non loin de Saint-Girons et de la station thermale de Salies du Salat. Casteret fait une description détaillée, suivant sa propre exploration et les témoignages qu'il a recueillis, partant de son embouchure pour remonter à sa source, alors inconnue. « Une fois rembarqués sur le lac de l'archipel, je m'avise soudain que les pilots sont au nombre de cinq. Dans cette grotte prédestinée à des dénominations familiales (déjà en 1922 les deux salles d'entrée avaient reçu les noms de Salle Nicole et Salle Mimi en l'honneur de la femme et de la fille de M. Cumenge), et où j'ai déjà consacré trois îles, nous nous livrons à une quintuple séance de toponymie. Les cinq îlots étant de dimensions décroissantes sont baptisés îles Raoul, Maud, Gilberte, Raymonde et Marie, des noms de mes cinq enfants [.] ». Spéléologue et préhistorien, on lui doit la découverte de la source de la Garonne au Trou du Toro ; il fut aussi mainteneur de l'Académie des jeux floraux (1937). [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        [ALBUM OF ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHS FROM THREE ARCTIC EXPEDITIONS COMMANDED BY DONALD BAXTER MacMILLAN]

      [Various places, including Labrador, Baffin Island, Ellesmere Island, and Greenland, 1925. Eighty-three silver gelatin photographs, plus four photo postcards, most approximately 3 x 5 inches. Oblong quarto. Contemporary black faux leather, cord-tied photo album. Edges and hinges worn. Photos in corner mounts on black paper supports. Manuscript captions on supports in white pencil throughout. Very good. A collection of eighty-seven images from three different Arctic voyages commanded or co-commanded by Donald Baxter MacMillan in the early 1920s. MacMillan made over thirty voyages to the Arctic during a nearly fifty year career that spanned the first half of the 20th century. After World War I, he designed and commissioned his own schooner, named the Bowdoin, specifically for Arctic exploration. The photos in this album document the first two expeditions made by the craft to Baffin Island in 1921-22, and to North Greenland, Ellesmere Island, and several other locations in 1923-24, as well as a third exploration, also to Greenland, made jointly with another ship called the Peary in 1925. The present images depict many views of the Bowdoin and the Peary, as well as sea planes transported into the Arctic by the Peary for testing, detail features of the passing landscape, seascape, and document local wildlife. Further photos show the activities of the men in camp and in the course of their duties, such as building, dog sledding, hiking, and ship loading. Finally, a number of pictures record the lives of the native Eskimo populations and show the ruins of building left by early Norse explorers. A varied and lively collection of photographs, that document an important set of 20th-century Arctic voyages.

When In Our Time was first published, it was praised by Ford Madox Ford, John Dos Passos, and F. Scott Fitzgerald for its simple and precise use of language to convey a wide range of complex feelings. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The present images depict many views of the Bowdoin and the Peary, as well as sea planes transported into the Arctic by the Peary for testing, detail features of the passing landscape, seascape, and document local wildlife. Further photos show the activities of the men in camp and in the course of their duties, such as building, dog sledding, hiking, and ship loading. Finally, a number of pictures record the lives of the native Eskimo populations and show the ruins of building left by early Norse explorers. A varied and lively collection of photographs, that document an important set of 20th-century Arctic voyages.

        [Photo Album]: Lincoln Highway Construction

      Indiana and Kentucky, 1925. Fine. Small oblong octavo. Measuring 8" x 6.5". String-tied with papercovered boards with "Photographs" inside an outline of a flag in gilt on the front. Contents include 54 tipped-in gelatin silver photographs and 19 loose photos laid-in. Each measures 2.75" x 4.5", and almost all are captioned under the image on a tipped-on piece of paper or, in the case of the laid-in images, on their back. The album is about fine with light wear at the edges; photographs are fine.This album documents the construction of the Lincoln Highway across the state of Indiana and its junction with the Dixie Highway. The Lincoln Highway was one of the first transcontinental automobile highways in the United States. It was conceived in 1912 by an Indiana businessman, Carl G. Fisher, and formally dedicated October 31, 1913. It ran coast-to-coast from New York City's Times Square to San Francisco's Lincoln Park. Initially, less than half of the route was paved. In an effort to provide the public with a vision of the future, Fisher obtained sponsorship from the U.S. Rubber Company to build an "Ideal Section" of roadway between Dyer and Schererville in Lake County, Indiana that had concrete roadbeds, wide banked curves with guard rails, no crossings, and a parallel pedestrian footpath. Fischer also initiated the construction of the Dixie Highway which actually was a series of north-south roads that linked northern Michigan and Chicago with Miami, Florida.The mounted photos in this album are of work on the Lincoln highway and its junction with the Dixie Highway showing the work crew, crew lodgings, steamrollers, tractors, tar-spreading trucks, trucks dumping stone, stone-spreading by hand, leveling, loading of tar and stone into company trucks from railcars, vehicles and equipment stuck in sand and mud, and the finished roadway including the Ideal Section. The 19 laid-in photographs show roadwork near Bargetown, Burnside, Harrodsburg, Livingston, and Stanford, Kentucky. These images are similar to the Lincoln Highway photos but also include a steam shovel, mule team, and three African-American boys, who according to a caption entertained the work crew with Stephen Foster songs. An important visual history of the first major transcontinental road construction project in the United States from the viewpoint of one of the workers.

        Le Lieutenant".

      1925 - Aquarelle et encre de Chine signée du cachet au verso du dessin, titrée à la mine de plomb au verso, (1925), 20.53 x 13 cm (format à vue), 24.2 x 26 cm (format de la feuille). George BARBIER (Nantes 1882-1932), peintre et illustrateur, a beaucoup travaillé pour la mode et le théâtre, composant des dessins de costumes et des décors. L'artiste a également illustré de nombreux ouvrages. Il a exposé régulièrement au Salon des Artistes Décorateurs de 1912 jusqu'à sa mort. En 1920 il participait à l'exposition du Musée des Arts Décoratifs à Paris: "La mode au XXème siècle vue par les peintres", représentant ce qu'on a nommé par la suite "l'Art Déco". Barbier s'est très tôt intéressé au théâtre, et ses dessins témoignent de l'influence des Ballets Russes Personnages de comédie (1922) et Vingt-cinq costumes pour le théâtre (1925) témoignent de ce goût (article Barbier et le théâtre, par Alain Stoeffler, in George Barbier, La Nascita del Deco, 2008, pp. 62-83). Cet habit de Lieutenant est réalisé dans un drap de velours rouge, agrémenté de passementeries et d'une chemise blanche à jabots. Il est coiffé d'une perruque surmontée d'un chapeau. Les longues bottes de cuir font parties intégrantes de la tenue. Dessin reproduit dans l'ouvrage "Folies Bergères" de Jacques Crépineau. Traces de colle et de papier collant au verso du dessin, infimes salissures. Oeuvre originale

Edited and with introduction by Adrian Piotrovsky (1898-1937), art director of Leningrad Film Studio. Supplemented with short review of Charlie Chaplin and Soviet cinema. The famous work by Bela Balazs (1884-1949), Hungarian-Jewish film critic and writer, probably the first major work on film theory. It had a big influence on such major Russian filmmakers as Vsevolod Pudovkin and Sergei Eisenstein, and were among the first studies to examine filmic syntax, grammar, and editorial structure. ''In this ninety-page treatise, Balázs stakes a claim for film as an art that may restore to modernity the lost expressive capacities of the visual body. Under such headings as 'Type and Physiognomy', 'The Play of Facial Expressions', 'The Close-Up' and 'The Face of Things', he presents a typology of expressive elements which together comprise the 'only shared universal language', the image-language of film''.
