        The Holy Bible reprinted according to the Authorised Version 1611.

      London: The Nonesuch Press; New York: The Dial Press,, 1925-27. 5 volumes, quarto (306 x 185 mm). Original reddish-brown niger morocco, gilt ruled spines, three-line gilt border on sides with corner rosettes, all edges gilt, gilt ruled turn-ins. Housed in two custom-made brick-red cloth, baize-lined, solander boxes. Engraved title pages, head and tail-pieces by Stephen Gooden. Spines darkened, volume I with dark band at head of lower cover, a few minor abrasions otherwise an excellent set. Number 57 of 75 sets printed on Arnold unbleached rag paper. Attractively printed at the Oxford University Press by Frederick Hall, the typography by the Nonesuch moving force Francis Meynall, and illustrated by Stephen Gooden, the handsome Nonesuch Bible is one of the finest editions of the 20th-century: "the page size is a happy compromise between the manageable and the majestic" (James A. Dearden in Encyclopaedia of Library and Information Science, volume 20, 1977, pp. 97-98). The illustrator, Stephen Gooden, whose "architectural" title pages – different in each volume - echo the spirit of the 17th-century,"was a 'literary' artist, being sensitive not only to the form of the book but appreciating the possibilities of its page for decoration, and he also seemed to appreciate the quality of the book he illustrated... [he had] an imaginative grasp of the subject matter, and his witty and elegant illustrations are finely engraved and inventive in design" (Alan Horne, The Dictionary of 20th Century British Book Illustrators, p. 221).

       4° Sehr guter ZustandLifelong authenticity guarantee! Lebenslange Echtheitsgarantie!Robert Francis ?Bobby? Kennedy (* 20. November 1925 in Brookline, Massachusetts; ? 6. Juni 1968 in Los Angeles, Kalifornien) war ein US-amerikanischer Politiker. Der jüngere Bruder des ermordeten US-Präsidenten John F. Kennedy strebte nach einer Karriere als Senatsjurist, Justizminister (United States Attorney General) und Senator auch die Präsidentschaft an und fiel dabei während des Vorwahlkampfes ebenfalls einem Attentat zum Opfer.Politische Laufbahn[Bearbeiten | Quelltext bearbeiten] Im Dezember 1952 wurde Kennedy juristischer Mitarbeiter des Senatsunterausschusses Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, der unter dem Vorsitz von Joseph McCarthy die angebliche kommunistische Unterwanderung von Regierung, Verwaltung und Militär untersuchte. Er verließ den Posten im Juli 1953, weil er mit den umstrittenen Methoden seines Vorgesetzten, Chefberater Roy Cohn, nicht einverstanden war, obwohl er persönlich weiterhin Sympathien für McCarthy empfand.[15] Anschließend war Kennedy für einige Monate im Mitarbeiterstab seines Vaters tätig, der in der sogenannten Hoover Commission Mitglied war.[16] Anfang 1954 kehrte er in das Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations zurück, dieses Mal in der Funktion des Chefberaters der demokratischen Minderheit. Von 1957 bis 1959 war er Chefberater des sogenannten McClellan Committee, das illegale Machenschaften in den Gewerkschaften untersuchte.[17]Da hier auch die kriminellen Aktivitäten innerhalb der Transportarbeitergewerkschaft Teamsters und deren Kontakte zur Mafia thematisiert wurden, brachte dies Kennedy die lebenslange Feindschaft des Teamsters-Vorsitzenden Jimmy Hoffa ein, der ihn auch für seine reiche Herkunft verachtete.[18]Im November 1959 wurde er zum Wahlkampfmanager seines Bruders für die Präsidentschaftswahl in den Vereinigten Staaten 1960.[17] Nach dem Sieg von John F. Kennedy 1960 berief dieser seinen Bruder als Justizminister in sein Kabinett. In diese Zeit fielen die Invasion in der Schweinebucht und die Kubakrise, in deren Verlauf er sich zum engsten Berater des Präsidenten entwickelte. Außerdem tat er sich als engagierter Bekämpfer des organisierten Verbrechens hervor und galt, trotz anfänglicher Vorwürfe von Vetternwirtschaft, bald als eines der effizientesten Regierungsmitglieder.Nach der Ermordung seines Bruders verblieb er zunächst im Kabinett des Nachfolgers Lyndon B. Johnson; beide trennte aber eine gegenseitige Abneigung. Als sich seine Hoffnungen nicht erfüllt hatten, bei der Präsidentschaftswahl 1964 von Johnson als künftiger Vizepräsident nominiert zu werden, verließ er die Regierung im Herbst 1964 und kandidierte für das Amt des US-Senators von New York. Er gewann den Wahlkampf gegen den Republikaner Kenneth Keating und war von 1965 bis 1968 Senator. Seine Popularität innerhalb der Demokratischen Partei hatte sich schon am Parteitag 1964 gezeigt, auf dem er seine Rede erst nach einem fast 20-minütigen Beifallssturm beginnen konnte, der seiner Meinung nach allerdings vor allem dem ermordeten Bruder galt.Kandidatur für die Präsidentschaft 1968[Bearbeiten | Quelltext bearbeiten] Als Senator ging Robert Kennedy zunehmend auf Distanz zur Vietnampolitik von Präsident Johnson, zögerte jedoch ? zur Enttäuschung mancher Anhänger ? aus Angst vor einer Parteispaltung zunächst, diesen bei der Präsidentschaftswahl 1968 offen herauszufordern. Erst als Johnson bei der ersten Vorwahl am 12. März gegen Senator Eugene McCarthy, einen weiteren innerparteilichen Vietnamkriegsgegner, überraschend schlecht abschnitt, meldete Kennedy am 16. März seine Kandidatur an, was ihm einige als Opportunismus vorhielten. Nach dem kurz darauf erfolgenden Verzicht von Johnson auf eine erneute Kandidatur sah sich Kennedy dann im innerparteilichen Vorwahlkampf um die Nominierung neben McCarthy bald auch Vizepräsident Hubert H. Humphrey gegenüber, der ebenfalls kandidieren wollte. Humphreys Ankündigung erfolgte jedoch zu spät, um noch an den Vorwahlen teilnehmen zu können, so dass sich diese größtenteils zu einem Duell zwischen Kennedy und McCarthy entwickelten, die beide den linken Parteiflügel repräsentierten und um ein ähnliches Wählersegment kämpften.Kennedys kurzfristig organisierter und oftmals improvisierter Wahlkampf stieß auf unerwartet positive Resonanz. Seine Auftritte lösten Begeisterungsstürme aus, die in der Geschichte der Vorwahlen (Primaries) beispiellos waren, vor allem unter Afroamerikanern und lateinamerikanischen Einwanderern. Nachhaltigen Eindruck hinterließ seine Rede am 4. April 1968 (dem Tag der Ermordung Martin Luther Kings) in Indianapolis, in der er zum ersten und einzigen Mal öffentlich auf das Attentat auf seinen Bruder Bezug nahm (?Auch er wurde von einem weißen Mann ermordet?)[19] und zu gegenseitigem Mitgefühl und einem Gerechtigkeitsgefühl für die Leidenden aufrief.(Quelle: Wikipedia) Lager 1 Autogramm, Autographe, Autograph signiert signed signature unterschrift

        Or et couleurs.

      Paris, Calavas [Librarie des Arts Decoratifs], [1925]. Folio-sized (32.6 x 46.3 cm). Half title, and 20 pochoir plates, heightened with silver and gold. Original portfolio with pochoir print on the front board.l The full title reads: "Or et Couleurs: Recuil de 60 Dessins Composes Par G. Darcy Dans Le Gout Nouveau a L'Usage Des Fabricants D'Etouffes, Decorateurs Brodeurs, Et Dessinateurs D'Ornements Envente a la Librairie Des Arts Decoratifs". In other words, this is a collection of wonderful, colourful, highly original Art-Deco designs for wallpapers, textiles, ceramics, etc. Georges Darcy (b. 1883) was a French illustrator and designer. The work is not dated. Various dates of publication are mentioned, including 1920, 1925 and even the 1930s. Probably the second year is about right. It is rare to find a copy with the plates in this good state; due to the paper used, plates are usually found with brittle edges. Lacking the title page. Stamp in half title page top margin; edges of the title page a bit frayed and chipped (as usual), a few plates with some marginal age-toning, a few small chips or short tears, otherwise clean, and with most plates in very good condition.

        Trevor Lloyd's sketchbooks of New Zealand.

      - New Zealand, ca. 1925. In two volumes. Folio (35 x 25 cm, and 36 x 33 cm). The first of white paper, with his name handwritten on the second leaf, and (68 groups of) illustrations, mostly on leaf rectos only, a few using both sides of a leaf. The second, largest, of brown paper, with his name written on the front cover. Inserted: one sheet of trace paper with pencil drawing, and 24 leaves with colour pencil sketches of New Zealand landscapes, and people.l Trevor Lloyd (1863-1937) was a New Zealand artist, illustrator and cartoonist. ".Lloyd was born in Silverdale, Auckland . [his] work is evocative of the New Zealand bush and his work often contained Maori motifs. Lloyd exhibited with the Auckland Society of Arts in 1883, 1896, 1898, 1899 and 1907 and in 1927 at the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts. Some examples of his work are available online. Lloyd was employed as an illustrator for New Zealand Illustrated Magazine from November 1901 until its last edition in 1905 (in which he was acknowledged). He also worked as an illustrator for Auckland Weekly News and as a cartoonist for The New Zealand Herald, retiring in 1936 after 34 years" (Wikipedia). The first sketchbook mainly shows a) scenes and people, observed and drawn by Lloyd during a boat trip, perhaps on a ferry; and b) spectacular solitary trees and ferns, in rectangular frames. The latter seems to be one of his favourite subjects: several New Zealand museums and art galleries possess tree etchings in his hand, and at least one of the drawings in this manuscript can be identified as the basis of one of his etchings. The former are not without humour: a harbour scene has, in the margin, the sketch of a surprised looking young girl, captioned "He's drawing in ink". Trevor Lloyd was, after all, also one the country's leading cartoonists. Of his India ink sketches those of landscapes are quite detailed; those of people more sketched -some in pencil. Among the pencilled illustrations is one of a cat sleeping in a man's arm, captioned "the prisoner", which left us to wonder who the prisoner was: the cat, or the man? The second sketchbook contains fine, balanced, crayon illustrations of New Zealand landscapes, and people, many captioned with the name of the location (e.g. Whale Island, in the Bay of Plenty, or Umu-Pura Pura, or a short description of the situation (e.g. "One of our backbones", "A warm day"). On some drawings a white tent is visible, suggesting that Lloyd went on a trip through part of New Zealand's Northern Island. Both sketch books show signs of travel and working in the open air. Thus edges frayed, a few smudges and small holes in some leaves, but generally in good condition. In all, a rich cross-section of Lloyd as an observer and artist. See also: John F. Perry. 'Lloyd, Trevor', from the Dictionary of New Zealand Biography. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        [SOVIET FILM ART] Kollezhskii registrator [i.e. The Stationmaster]

      Moscow: Mezhrabpom- Rus', 1925. 16 pp.: ill., photographs. 30,5х22,5 cm. In original illustrated wrappers by I. Bograd. Near fine. Some soiling and slightly rubbed spine. One of 15000. This edition is dedicated to the Soviet silent film which came out in 1925. Scenes from the film with captions followed by small excerption from original story - Alexander Pushkin's classic novella 'The Stationmaster'. In 1927 Mary Pickford after coming back from Soviet Russia in an interview she called The Stationmaster the best film she watched there. Israel Bograd (1899-1938) was a designer, graphic, poster artist. He is mostly known for his works in advertising and film posters. He based his works on contemporary Western and Soviet art, but his posters of 1920-30s stylistically close to art deco were slightly standing out from a number of works of the time. Characters of his posters contrast with images forced by Soviet ideology. Nevertheless some of his remarkable works are considered classic of Soviet advertising. The film by Ivan Moskvin (1874-1946) was a Soviet actor and director. This is the only film he directed. No copies in USA according to Worldcat.

A near fine copy in a near fine dust jacket, minor loss to corners, small closed tear to upper front panel, rubbing to flap fold, spine panel slightly age darkened, internal cello-tape re-enforcement to spine ends. A bright attractive copy of this title, uncommon in this condition. (10110). Octavo, cloth. Photoplay edition issued with the release of the 1925 First National film directed by Harry Hoyt and starring Wallace Beery, it has four stills from the motion picture. Interestingly this film is the first use of stop motion animation and features the work of animator Willis O'Brien who in 1933 would create King Kong. Another important note is that this film version of the Lost World was a 'lost' film. In a contractual agreement, all know prints (positive and negative) were destroyed in 1929. A truncated 16mm print was what remained until the 1990s when a nearly full length print was discovered in the film archives of the Czech Republic. Today two restored versions exist, one available on DVD, nearly complete and a third longer than any version up to this time with 30 minutes of footage replaced, the other restoration is the property of Eastman Kodak (information from an article at dvdjournal.com).

        [CIVIL WAR THROUGH CHILDREN'S EYES] Detskaia knizhka o svoiom: Kniga o sovetskoi detskoi zhizni napisannaia samimi det'mi [i.e. Children's Book About Themselves: A Book About Children's Life Written by Children]

      Moscow: GMPT, 1925. 140, [3] pp., [2] maps. 17x13,5 cm. In original illustrated wrappers. Near fine, slightly soiled. Very rare. This edition was compiled from stories written by children about themselves and their lives (slightly edited by the compiler). Most of these children were from orphanages. The compiler doesn't give children's names with one exception - a son of the famous Bolshevik Podvoisky (in his story he described his trip to Germany with his father). In 1920s there was an increased interest in childhood, education, various experiments in this field. Lev Vygotsky (1896-1934) and pedology (soon to be banned) were at the top at that point. On the other hand there was a definite need of a new system as the society broke free from the old world including way of raising children. Children of October were of a real interest as they were a complete new generation of a new value system and ideology. One more possible reason for such interest to children's art in 1920s is that Russian avant-garde understood children's literary creativity as self-valuable and equal to adult's. This book is an amazing evidence of the time and everything of the above. It was made when the fight with illiteracy was just in the beginning. But all these stories here were told, and everything verbal became important at that point. These are the real stories of real children survived during Civil War. Horrible stories are put into non heroic context. It's a possibility that the idea of this compilation was to see how this childhood trauma affected these children (there was a clear interest to freudism and psychology as well). And maybe to look at this terrible context with such absolutely unbiased, not politicized eyes of children. Very soon these stories will be told only in propaganda manner. Worldcat locates no copies.

A key American architect, his work spanned many styles from the Gothic Revival of churches and academic buildings to the Spanish Colonial Revival of the 1915 Exposition to Byzantine Revival for St. Bartholomew's to the modernist work of his later churches, court houses and the Los Angeles Public Library, which became the dominant California regional vernacular. He was also an important book illustrator and designer of the stunning Arts and Crafts style Altar Book of 1896, and typographer, creating Cheltenham for the Cheltenham Press and Merrymount for the Merrymount Press. Size: Folio [Attributes: Hard Cover]
