        De Civitate Dei Contra Paganos, Libri XXII [The City of God, or The City of God Against the Pagans]

      [Bremer Press], [Munich] 1925 - No. 333 of 385 copies, Folio - over 12 - 15" tall, 690 p. Saint Augustine of Hippo is arguably the most influential Christian theologian in the entire two thousand years of Church history; his best known works are his "Confessions" and this, The City of God, which serves as a cornerstone of Western thought. In it Augustine discusses many of the profound questions of theology, such as the suffering of the righteous, the existence of evil, the conflict between free will and divine omniscience, and the doctrine of original sin (N.B., from Wiki). This copy, published by the Bremer Press and printed entirely in Latin (with occasional Greek), was the third book of their "Folio Series", the first two being Dante's Divine Comedy in 1921 and Homer's Iliad in 1923. A starkly handsome production with intial capital letters by Anna Simons; in "A Century for the Century" the editors describe this work as "monumental" and go on to say "the powerful title page is among the most beautiful produced by the press; Wiegand's small, clear roman type, set very tightly, is used here with great impact, matching the power of Saint Augustine's words. The specifics of type, inking, presswork, and paper are close to perfection." ***DESCRIPTION: Binding of light blue paper over boards, white paper spine label with black lettering, plain endpapers, all text in Latin, 20-page Critical Appendix (Adnotatio Critica) beginning at page 609, followed by a 25-page Index (Index Locorum); folio size (approximately 14" tall), 690 pages, special roman and greek types on Zanders handmade paper, limited edition of 385 copies, this no. 333. Housed in a slipcase covered with the same blue paper, no lettering or decorations. ***CONDITION: Near fine, with clean binding, a strong, square text block, solid hinges, perfectly square corners without rubbing, the interior is clean and bright, and entirely free of prior owner markings; some sunning to the spine, some very light abrasions (apparently from the slipcase), and one cracked gutter (pgs. viii and viiii), else fine. The matching slipcase is also near fine, complete, strong and sturdy, with minimal sunning around the opening and extremely light wear to the paper covering on the bottom. ***CITATIONS: Ransom, Bremer Press, no. 30; A Century for the Century, no. 14. ***POSTAGE: Due to size and weight, international customers please note that additional shipping will apply; we are happy to ship at cost, please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        Geneva - Leipzig - Prague [manuscript title on spine].

      - [Locarno, Geneva, and other places, 1925-33]. Square 4to. Patterned cloth, 34 original photos (various formats measuring 54 x 60 up to 132 x 82 mm), all neatly mounted on one side of stiff carton leaves with tissue guards, captioned by hand; apart from light fading of spine in very glood and clean condition. This unique and privately produced photo album with unpublished photos of diplomatic negotiations and politicians was compiled, probably by a Geneva doctor, on 'diplomatic duty', with a keen eye for the occasion and a camera good enough to take unofficial snapshots. The album opens with photos showing the Czechoslovak Minister of Foreign Affairs (and later President of the Republic) Edvard Bene?, his wife and members of his delegation on Isola Bella near Locarno in 1925. Others show the German conterpart, Gustav Stresemann, relaxing in a cafe, with the German Chancellor Dr Luther and other delegates, Austen Chamberlain and Aristide Briand, the Yugoslav Foreign Secretary Nin?i? Another group of photos, including certainly surreptitiously taken snapshots show scenes of negotiations and the signing of the Kellogg-Briand Pact (snapshots of Kellogg signing, Bene? signing, Streseman and Briand listening to Kellogg speaking, Chamberlain and Briand). One impressive portrait shows the Hungarian politician Albert Apponyi de Nagyappony. Other photos date from the last days of the Weimar Republic, a portrait of the German Chancellor (1930-1932) Brüning (whose constitutional wranglings enabled Hitler's rise to power), Hitler himself, laying the foundation stone of the Wagner Memorial in Leipzig in 1934, and another one of the dictator (a rather blurred picture of him on the move with a crowd of dignitaries). The last photo of this album shows Masaryk in Prague in 1934. The photographer had remarkable access to a wide spectrum of diplomats and politicians. The album seems to be constructed to show the failure of inter-war peace initiatives with suited men against the và lkisch ideology and the political theatre of Hitler's martial rallies in military uniform.

Richardson, an Englishwoman, spent six months in the jungles of the region, living among the Mazaruni Indians of the region, digging for diamonds, and fending off snakes, alligators, electric eels, fever, and hunger. She writes that in her account she "carefully avoided sacrificing truth to sensationalism," and she provides interesting and accurate information about the Indians of the region, as well as details of jungle life. Among the illustrations are pictures of the various camps and Indian assistants to the party.

        Lelio a Pro delfina. / Lelio a Pro delfína. [Lelio. For the Dolphin.]

      Aventinum, Praha (Prague) 1925 - First edition. Limited, numbered copy (1/1,000). Title page printed in black and orange. In publisher's black wrapper, printed white and orange. 87, (9) p. First edition of this collection of short stories by ?apek. Lelio was ?apek's debut book, published first in 1917, Pro delfína appeared in 1923. Two years later this joint edition of the two collections of short stories was also published in 1,000 numbered copies. Josef ?apek (Czech cubist painter, writer, and poet; 1887-1945) is credited as the coiner of the word "robot". Although some sources claim that the word "robot" first appeared in the short story "Opilec" of the volume "Lelio", but actually it was "automat". "Robot" appeared first in Josef's brother's 1920 play, "R.U.R." (Rossum's Universal Robots), as the name for artificial workers. Karel had difficulties to name these humanoid machines and asked Josef to find something instead of the academically sounding "Labori". Josef coined the word "Robot" deriving it from the Czech "robota", forced labor. Wrappers artistically restored. Inside clear and firm. Overall in fine condition. In publisher's black wrapper, printed white and orange First edition. Limited, numbered copy (1/1,000). Title page printed in black and orange. [Attributes: First Edition]

Im Jahr 1905 nahm die Firma auch den neuen Industriezweig des Karosseriebau auf und entwickelte den Fahrzeugverdeckbau als eine firmenspezifische Spezialität: die sogenannten "Golde-Blitz-Verdecke". Nach dem Tode des Firmengründers Karl Traugott Golde am 16. April 1905 führten seine Söhne Richard (geb. 5. Dezember 1872) und Alfred (geb. 4. Februar 1876) den Betrieb weiter. 1910 gründeten die Brüder zur Ausnutzung ihrer amerikanischen Patente eine Zweigniederlassung in New York unter dem Namen "Golde Patent Top Manufacturing Company". Die Gesellschaft wurde 1921 unter Übernahme der unter gleichen Namen bestehenden oHG gegründet. Zweck war die Herstellung von Automobilzubehörteilen, Windschutzscheiben, Verdecken, Stahlgerippen, Pferdewagen und Handfeuerlöschern. Von 1915 bis 1932 war der bekannte norwegische Architekt und Designer Thilo Schoder (1888-1979) Chefdesigner bei Golde. Er war als künstlerischer Beirat tätig und siedelte nach Gera über. Mit zahlreichen Design - Entwürfen und dem Bau eines Fabrikgebäudes realisierte Schoder die Verbindung von künstlerischer und industrieller Produktion. Nach 1945 Fortsetzung der Firma als Hans Traugott Golde & Co. GmbH in Frankfurt am Main. Diese stellte unter anderem patentierte Schiebedächer für Studebaker her. Das Firmengebäude der Golde’s wurde bis heute (2008) als Geraer Industrie-denkmal erhalten.

        “Mermaid” Subject.

      No date [1925]. Original watercolor with pen and ink on card, signed, 15 x 11 inches. Label on verso of “A. E. Johnson, Artists’ Agent” numbered 1669 and identifying title and artist. Very good. On a beach, a rotund merman with a ginger beard and necklace of shells examines the discarded clothes of a British Tommy while a pretty mermaid peers over his shoulder; paddling in the sea some distance away, the Tommy himself looks over in astonishment. With the hand lettered caption, “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in our philosophy.” The painting was made in May or June of 1925 for a publication unknown; a fine example of Heath Robinson’s weird and wonderful imagination.

In copertina firma e data autografe della ballerina (Wien, 24-V-25) e un tassello di carta applicato con l'indirizzo scritto a inchiostro. Testo in tedesco. pp. 22,5x15. Ottimo (Fine). . "Come nel caso di molti altri ballerini, Mila Cirul ricevette la sua prima rivelazione della danza attraverso Isadora Duncan. Cominciò il suo apprendistato nella danza classica con Mordkin a Mosca, e poi con Ellen Tels, il cui insegnamento era impregnato non solo dello spirito di Isadora, ma anche della ricerca di Delsarte e Meyerhold (con il quale Mila in seguito lavorò). Annoverando Lenin tra gli ammiratori che seguirono le sue prime apparizioni pubbliche in Russia dove fece il suo debutto, Mila perseguì la sua carriera di ballerina e coreografa per diversi anni in Austria e in Germania, con Ellen Tels e un ltro piccolo gruppo di danzatori. Incontrò Mary Wigman a Francoforte nel 1916 venendone molto influenzata [..] Dopo aver lavorato a Berlino, dove fu prima ballerina all'Opera, Vienna e Hannover, si stabilì a Parigi nel 1932, dove aprì una scuola che ebbe una indubbia influenza su un certo numero di giovani ballerini. A Parigi si fece subito conoscere. Il prolifico critico e campione della danza libera, Fernand Divoire, fu uno dei suoi più grandi ammiratori, e produsse per lei diversi testi e libretti. Nel 1934 la sua interpretazione della Salomé di Richard Strausse al Théâtre des Champs-Elysées ebbe un enorme successo di critica e pubblico" (da "Modern Dance in France: An Adventure 1920-1970", di Jacqueline Robinson).

Small folio 4to., bound in original boards in a new blue cloth folding box with a red leather label. Japan: 1920s and 30s.This collection provides a unique view of Japanese pre-war design. Many of the labels show the strong influence the French Art Deco style had on Japanese design. It is safe to say that not many of these ephemeral objects survived, and these, having been mounted in albums, are particularly fresh.
