        [Loose Photographs]: 1925 Santa Barbara Earthquake

      Santa Barbara, California, 1925. Near Fine. A collection of 18 silver gelatin photographs measuring 3.5" x 5.5" with some captions. Slightly curled else near fine.A collection of photographs detailing the aftermath of the 1925 earthquake in Santa Barbara, California. The photos show the ruined buildings around the city including the Marcos Building, Santa Barbara Hotel, and the Catholic Church. Whole buildings were reduced to rubble while other lost full sides of their buildings exposing the interior of the structure including one photo of hotel rooms after the side of the Santa Barbara hotel had collapsed. The earthquake killed 13 and destroyed Santa Barbara's downtown area but spared most of the residential homes, although every chimney "crumbled." One of the famous structures to be affected was the Potter Theater which was lost as a result of the quake and is seen here as a mess of rubble. Many of the rebuilt structures from this period are on the National Register due to their affiliations with famous architects who were invited to help with the rebuilding process. Some of these include James Osborne Craig, George Washington Smith, Carleton Winslow, Bertram Goodhue, and Winsor Soule. The immediate rescue efforts are seen here with outdoor bedding and cafeteria set up for those who were displaced by the earthquake.A modest but interesting collection portraying the aftermath of a devastating natural disaster.

        Shakespeares Works. 7 Bände

      William SHAKESPEARE; ERNST LUDWIG PRESSE: Shakespeares Works. 7 Bände. Darmstadt, Mainz und Leipzig: Ernst Ludwig Presse (Christian Heinrich Kleukens) und Insel-Verlag 1925-1931. 4°. 249 [5]; 309 [7]; 353 [7]; 329 [7]; 341 [7]; 345 [5]; 367 [5]. Halbleinenbände der Zeit mit goldgeprägten, verzierten Rückengoldtiteln auf braunen und grünen Lederschildchen, die Decken mit marmoriertem Papier überzogen. Einer von nur 250 (Bd. 7, 200) Exemplarsätzen dieses ebenso exquisiten wie voluminösen Pressendrucks mit originalsprachlichen (in der Textrevision von Friedrich Brie aufgenommenen) Werken Shakespeares in 7 Bänden, u.a. den Dramen »Hamlet«, »Macbeth« und »Romeo and Juliet«, sowie den »Poems«. Bei liegen ein einseitig bedrucktes Ankündigungsblatt mit Subkriptionseinladung des Insel-Verlags (aus dem Archiv der Wiener Verlagsbuchhandlung Anton Schroll) nebst Halbbogen mit 4 Probeseiten (Auszug aus dem Bd. »Poems«. Ursprünglich auf 16 Bände angelegt, wurden letztlich nur 7 Bände dieses laut Ankündigungsprospekt als „Monumental-Ausgabe" bezeichneten und als „erste schöne englische Shakespeare-Gesamtausgabe" beworbenen Editionsprojekts fertiggestellt. Laut Druckvermerken in den Bänden waren von der Gesamtauflage 100 Exemplare (Bd. 7, 100) für die „Freunde der Ernst Ludwig Presse" bestimmt, die übrigen 150 (Bd. 7, 125) kamen über den mit Kleukens kooperierenden Insel-Verlag in den Handel. Für Subskribenten erschien in einer Auflage von 135 Exemplaren auch noch ein Supplementband. Christian Heinrich Kleukens setzte den Text breitrandig in einer eigens für dieses Vorhaben geschnittenen und gegossenen, eleganten Shakespeare Antiqua und druckte ihn auf starkem handgeschöpften Zanders-Bütten (mit dem Wasserzeichen „JW Zanders"). Der typografisch wohl aufwändigste und umfangreichste Druck der Ernst Ludwig Presse überhaupt konnte von Insel laut Ankündigungsblatt entweder in Halbpergament oder Maroquin gebunden bezogen werden. Exemplarsätze aus dem Kontingent der Presse selbst hat man offenbar auch in Bögen ausgeliefert, wie vorliegender Satz zeigt, der in genauso schlichtes wie elegantes privates Halbleinen gebunden ist (sh. auch das bei Kiefer 71 (2010) versteigerte Exemplar). Lederrückenschildchen stellenweise minimal berieben, Ankündigungsblatt mit Einrissen und kleinen Fehlstellen an den Rändern, sonst sehr frischer Exemplarsatz dieses außergewöhnlichen Pressendrucks. Rodenberg II, 23 (nur. Bde. I-V); Schauer II, 65 (mit Abb.); Stürz 62.

First edition of this exhaustive guide to the exhibitors at the 1925 world's fair, instigated by the Societé des Artistes Décorateurs in their desire to achieve equal status with practitioners of the fine arts, and supported by the French government to provide a showcase for the style moderne - "modernism turned into fashion" (Encyclopaedia Britannica) - in architecture, interior decoration, furniture, glass, jewellery and other decorative arts. As one of the founders of the group, Belgian architect Frantz Jourdain, expressed it: "We resolved to return Decorative Art, inconsiderately treated as a Cinderella or poor relation, only permitted to eat with the servants, to the important, almost preponderant place it occupied in the past, of all times and in all of the countries of the globe". Staged between April and October 1925, the event occupied the area between the esplanade of Les Invalides and the entrances of the Grand Palais and Petit Palais, and along both banks of the Seine, over 15,000 exhibitors from twenty countries and close to 16 million visitors. attended. As a result of the world-wide publicity garnered by the show the style moderne that it promoted became known as Art Deco. An excellently preserved, solid and attractive copy of this important document in the development of design in the early twentieth century. [Attributes: First Edition]

Service des Antiquite s. Bibliothe`que Arche ologique et Historique, Tomes: V, VI, Librairie Orientaliste, Paul Geuthner, Paris, 1925-1928. Guillaume de Jerphanion, (1877- 1948) was a FrenchJesuit, epigrapher, geographer, linguistic, photographer,archaeologist and Byzantinist. As early as 1903, Guillaume had obtained permission to leave for Armenia, to attend the college of Tokat. He studied Turkish and Armenian while teaching French and Mathematics to young Armenians. During his first stay in Asia Minor, he drew the first large-scale map of the area. Above all, he discovered, in the company of an elder, Father Gransault, the rock-carved churches of the Cappadocia region of Turkey. This region has fantastic landscapes unique to the world, to which are added the historical riches: in this soft stone settled a troglodytic habitat. Cappadocia is home to several hundred churches and chapels dug in the Middle Ages by Byzantine monks who decorated them with no less care than the free standing stone monuments. The oldest churches were excavated in the 6th century. Cappadocia is the only natural museum of Byzantine frescoes in the world. Guillaume devoted more than thirty years of his life to the exploration and study of the rock churches of Cappadocia. Whether naive or sophiscated, their frescoes, in which biblical scenes and popular hagiography were revived, were not unknown to archaeologists, but Guillaume was the first to make an inventory of them and place them in the history of Byzantine art. He discovered, inventoried, and classified, in fact, all these cave churches and their paintings. On the history of Eastern Christian art, Father Guillaume published several pamphlets, as well as a remarkable five-volume work entitled, "A New Province of Byzantine Art: The Cappadocian Rock Churches". This monumental work was unanimously praised by the specialists, notably by the renowned Byzantinist Louis Brehier, and immediately placed Father Guillaume among the renowned archaeologists. It has also attracted worldwide attention on the region of Cappadocia. Size: 4to. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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]

        POLISH FUTURISM: KWADRATY [SQUARES].

      Zamosc: Zamojskie Kolo Milosnikow Ksazki 1925 - 8°. 30 pp., [1] index, original tan wrappers with title lithographed in blue and yellow (Very Good, slightly age-toned, wrappers with tiny tears in the spine). A rare, attractively designed book with poetry in Polish, was one of the early works by the founder of Polish Futurism Stanislaw Mlodozeniec. This attractive book with poetry in Polish language was written and designed by the founder of the Polish futurism Stanislaw Mlodozeniec (1895 - 1959). Born in Dobrocice, Mlodozeniec spent his school years in Russia, where he witnessed the Revolution, which forced him to move back to Poland, where he enrolled the Jagiellonian University in Kraków. At the end of 1919, beginning of 1920, Stanislaw Mlodozeniec founded, together with a futurist painter Tytus Czyzewski and a poet Bruno Jasie?ski, the Futurist Club "Katarynka" and organized with them the first evening of futuristic poetry in Krakow. In 1920s he moved to Warsaw, where he worked as a teacher, author, thater reviewer, and developed strong connections with the artists. Stanislaw Mlodozeniec was mobilised at the beginning of WWII on September 19, 1939, and trensferred to Hungary. In June 1940 he escaped through Yugoslavia and Constantinople to Syria, where he joined of the Independent Carpathian Rifle Brigade. Mlodozeniec travelled with the brigade through Egypt and Palestine, where he was involved in the army theatre. He was the author of the lyrics of the Brigade’s song and an editor of the Polish newspaper Gazeta Polskiej, printed in Jerusalem. In June 1942 he moved to London, where he joined the Propaganda Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Government of Emigration, and in 1943 the secret Polish radio Dawn. After WWII Stanislaw Mlodozeniec moved back to Warsaw, where he died in 1959. We could not trace any examples of the book in institutions outside Poland.

        [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.
