        [JAMES NORTHFIELD] Water will not harm Warner's rust-proof corsets

      [Melbourne] : Syd. Day, [c. 1925]. Hanging sign for shop display, colour offset print on paper, 400 x 280 mm, signed in image at lower left 'Hackett & Northfield'; on original backing board, with two eyelets at top edge; in good condition, a mild amount of rubbing and wear to the edges. A poster format advertisement for Warner's Corsets, designed by the celebrated Melbourne commercial artist James Northfield in collaboration with a lesser known artist, Hackett (first name unknown).

        Manuscript Chess Match.

      [France: , 1925?]. Two notebook leaves (220 x 125 mm) with manuscript chess moves to rectos only. Together mounted, incorporating a photograph of Duchamp and Vitaly Halbserstadt, and framed (460 x 370 mm). Very minor creasing and a small chip to top edge of one leaf, excellent condition. A rare manuscript record of an apparently unrecorded chess game played between Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968) and Henri Bertrand, victoriously inscribed by Duchamp, "D'accord! à bientôt. Marcel". The moves themselves are in the hand of Duchamp's friend and fellow French chess master Vitaly Halberstadt (1903-67), who was the winner of the 1st Paris City Chess Championship in 1925. Framed together with the Duchamp-Bertrand game is the record, again in Halberstadt's hand, of a game between Halberstadt and Leon Schwarzmann (1887-1942), a Polish-French chess master and winner of the 2nd Paris City Chess Championship, who later died in Auschwitz. The game is not dated, though another game between Duchamp and Bertrand (again won by the artist) is recorded in 1925, during the Third French Chess Championship (for which Duchamp had designed a poster), held at Nice. This, plus the convergence of these early winners of the Paris City Chess Championship, certainly suggests a date in the mid 20s. This period marks the beginnings of Duchamp's most intense engagement with the game. It was around this time that he allowed rumours to spread that he was going to abandon art altogether in order to devote himself entirely to chess. Though he remained an artist, he was also a serious and successful chess competitor, and while at the same time working the ideas and symbols of chess into his art. He even went so far as to remark, "The chess pieces are the block alphabet which shapes thoughts; and these thoughts, although making a visual design on the chess-board, express their beauty abstractly, like a poem... I have come to the personal conclusion that while all artists are not chess players, all chess players are artists." Halberstadt and Duchamp were close friends, and the photograph incorporated here shows them both intent upon a game (out of shot). The pair also collaborated, in 1932, on a chess manual dedicated to the idea and problems of the endgame, "L'Opposition et les cases conjugées sont réconciliées", with Duchamp designing the layout and cover.

        Complete Set of 40 Photo-Illustrated Postcards from Die Nibelungen

      Verlag "Ross", Berlin 1925 - This is a complete collection of postcards printed by Verlag Ross, for Ufa-Delca Film, to celebrate the release of Fritz Lang's two-part epic fantasy film Die Nibelungen. The postcards measure approximately 3.5 x5.5" each, and are printed in striking sepia-toned photogravure, on heavy cardstock. The images depict characters and dramatic scenes from the film, covering both parts "Siegfried" and "Kriemhilds Rache" ("Kriemhild's Revenge"), and are divided into 6 groupings. Each card is captioned with the serial number, and title of the character or scene, with the name of the actor often mentioned as well. The final group of 4 cards is a sequence showcasing the pivotal dramatic battle between Siegfried and the dragon. This set is not to be confused with the series of colored postcards by Uvachrom, which were based, in part, on these images. The postcards were never used (circulated), but some have a red triangle stamped insignia, light smudges and/or light pencil markings. Some of the cards use a faint light blue cardstock, while most are white. The front of some of the cards have some occasion light smudges, minor stains, and/or light creases, with most images unaffected. The cards are in overall very good condition.

        Album of Film Stills [Cover Title]: Bulldog Drummond's "Third Round" by Sapper

      London: Astra, National Productions, (1925). London: Astra, National Productions. (1925). Oblong quarto. String tied black cloth titled in gilt on front board. Bound in are 35 double-weight gelatin silver stills from the film, hole punched in the wide lefthand margin. Soiling on the verso of a couple of images, tiny nick in the margin of one, modest wear on the boards, a couple of the holes are pulled through, overall very good; the images are slightly curled, else otherwise fine. Issued by the production company, likely for a participant in the film, for the 1925 English silent film featuring a popular and intrepid English detective hero (there have been approximately 30 films featuring the detective over several decades). This film, directed by Sidney Morgan and featuring Jack Buchanan as Drummond, apparently revolves around boxing and shady scientists - with several images of both, including much scientific apparatus. According to one summary from the British Film Institute catalog: "Merchants hire a foreign criminal to kidnap a scientist for the secret of manufacturing diamonds." Vivid images, certainly rare, and possibly unique. Contemporary collections of images from any silent film are very uncommon. .

        PAPERS OF DEVOTION OF JAMES II: BEING A REPRODUCTION OF THE MS. IN THE HANDWRITING OF JAMES THE SECOND NOW IN THE POSSESSION OF MR. B. R. TOWNLEY BALFOUR

      Oxford: Printed [at the Oxford University Press by Frederick Hall] for Presentation to the Members of the Roxburghe Club, 1925. Apparently the FIRST EDITION y. The ultra-exclusive Roxburghe Club takes its name from the celebrated bibliophile John Ker, third duke of Roxburghe (1740-1804), who put together an unprecedented collection of some 10,000 items, the majority being early books, especially works printed by Caxton. In 1812, during the evening of the day those books were dispersed at auction, the most distinguished of the patrician bibliophiles in attendance at the sale dined together in St. Albans Street. No doubt stirred to a special fervor as a result of the auction (Valdarfer's 1471 edition of Boccaccio, for which Roxburghe paid £100, had sold for the astronomical sum of £2,260), the 18 assembled collectors founded the Roxburghe Club, which ever after has counted among its membership a small elite of bibliophiles. Written during the period of James' exile after his conversion to Roman Catholicism, the present volume contains loosely connected papers by the king giving his thoughts on religion, the text taken from an original manuscript and printed here for the first time. Although the piety he expresses did not always govern his personal behavior, the king is obviously sincere in his reflections, and although he had the reputation for being endowed with less than a superfluity of intellectual prowess, the writing here shows that he had thought deeply about his life and faith. As some indication of the limitation of the press run here, the membership roll at the front of this work lists 40 members of the Roxburghe Club, with the Earl of Derby, who prepared this work for the group, listed 11th. There could not be a copy anywhere in finer condition than this one.. 292 x 229 mm. (11 1/2 x 9"). xxx pp., [1] leaf, 173, [5] pp.Introduction by Godfrey Davies. Apparently the FIRST EDITION. Original Roxburghe binding of maroon half morocco over red textured cloth boards, flat spine with titling in gilt, top edge gilt, other edges untrimmed. One facsimile manuscript plate. Presentation card reading "With the Earl of Derby's compliments" laid in at front. Title page, dedication, and membership list printed in red and black. This copy originally prepared for Sydney Richardson Christie-Miller (his name printed in red in the Roxburghe list as a way of indicating this). Endpapers with a hint of foxing, but A VIRTUALLY PRISTINE COPY.The ultra-exclusive Roxburghe Club takes its name from the celebrated bibliophile John Ker, third duke of Roxburghe (1740-1804), who put together an unprecedented collection of some 10,000 items, the majority being early books, especially works printed by Caxton.

        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. Please contact us with any questions, we are here to help. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
