It is a magical, living book, blended of irony, romance, and mysticism." First Edition, first printing with all first issue points. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

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.

        TARTUFFE (1925)

      UFA 1925 - Vintage original 9 x 11 ½" (23 x 29 cm.) black-and-white double weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, Germany. Emil Jannings, Lil Dagover, Werner Krauss, Lucie Hoflich, dir: F.W. Murnau. Highlighted by brilliant camera work, this film -- one of the few extant Murnau works -- is not as well known as his others. Today we have just a truncated American-released version of the film which hints at its greatness. Carl Mayer based his script on the Moliére play, and together with the filmmakers took the original story and made it relevant to a 1925 audience by giving it a modern day setting, with a story about a young man who is trying to save his grandfather from the greedy housekeeper who threatens to take his fortune. The young man is an actor and sets up a movie screening of the story of "Tartuffe" (with its similar theme) in order to show the housekeeper's true colors. In this still, Emil Jannings as Tartuffe is reading over the "good book." This photo has the UFA insignia printed in at bottom left and the number 18 at bottom right. Photo has had professional restoration to address corner creases and a small tear at the center top of the image. There is a faint ink stamp on the verso. ABOUT FINE.

Its most common use was as a material for writing on, for documents, notes, or the pages of a book, codex or manuscript. It is distinct from leather in that parchment is limed but not tanned; therefore, it is very reactive to changes in relative humidity and is not waterproof. The finer qualities of parchment are called vellum.

      1925. First Edition . Signed. LEWIS, Sinclair. Arrowsmith. New York: Harcourt, Brace, (1925). Octavo, original buckram spine, blue paper boards, original printed paper label, top edge gilt, uncut. $2500.Signed limited first edition of what many consider Lewis' greatest novel, number 139 of only 500 large paper copies signed by him.“Using for his theme the losing fight made by two men with whom scientific truth is religion, Mr. Lewis draws a picture for us that is disquieting in its disillusionment… Arrowsmith is a pagan novel for a pagan world… an authentic step forward” (Books of the Century, 63-64). Although Arrowsmith was awarded the Pulitzer Prize, Lewis declined the honor, ostensibly because Main Street (1921) had not been so honored. His rejection, however, also secured front-page status for this satire of the medical profession in the nation's newspapers. Adapted to the screen in 1931 by director John Ford. Issued on the same day as the stated second (first trade) edition. Without scarce original glassine and slipcase. Pastore 9. Bruccoli & Clark III:213.

        The National Being - Some Thoughts on an Irish Polity. [With an original drawing by Russell on the Titlepage].

      London, MacMillan and Co., 1925. - 13 cm x 19 cm. 176 pages. Original Hardcover with original dustjacket in protective Mylar. Very good condition. Former library copy with some interesting Patina. Some old newspaper clippings on A.E. taped to the pastetown and endpaper include also a newspaper photograph of the older Russell. The wonderful drawing by A.E. signed in his full name and as A.E. Very Rare ! George William Russell (10 April 1867 – 17 July 1935) who wrote with the pseudonym Æ (sometimes written AE or A.E.), was an Irish writer, editor, critic, poet, artistic painter and Irish nationalist. He was also a writer on mysticism, and a central figure in the group of devotees of theosophy which met in Dublin for many years. Russell was editor from 1905 to 1923 of the Irish Homestead, the journal of the IAOS. His gifts as a writer and publicist gained him a wide influence in the cause of agricultural co-operation. He then became editor of the The Irish Statesman, the paper of the Irish Dominion League, which merged with the Irish Homestead, from 15 September 1923 until 12 April 1930. With the demise of this newspaper he was for the first time of his adult life without a job, and there were concerns that he could find himself in a state of poverty, as he had never earned very much money from his paintings or books. At one point his son Diarmuid was reduced to selling off early drafts of his father's works to raise money, rather to the annoyance of Russell, who accused Diarmuid, with whom his relations were not good, of "raiding the wastepaper baskets". Unbeknownst to him meetings and collections were organized and later that year at Plunkett House he was presented by Father T. Finlay with a cheque for £800. This enabled him to visit the United States the next year, where he was well received all over the country and his books sold in large numbers. His first book of poems, Homeward: Songs by the Way (1894), established him in what was known as the Irish Literary Revival, where Æ met the young James Joyce in 1902 and introduced him to other Irish literary figures, including William Butler Yeats. He appears as a character with Lizzie Twigg in the "Scylla and Charybdis" episode of Joyce's Ulysses, where he dismisses Stephen's theories on Shakespeare. His collected poems was published in 1913, with a second edition in 1926. His house at 17 Rathgar Avenue in Dublin became a meeting-place[8] at the time for everyone interested in the economic and artistic future of Ireland: his Sunday evenings "at home" were a notable feature of Dublin literary life. Michael Collins, the effective leader of the new Government, became acquainted with Russell in the last months of his life: Oliver St. John Gogarty, a regular guest at Russell's Sundays "at home" believed that these two men, so utterly unalike in most ways, nonetheless developed a deep mutual respect. Russell's generosity and hospitality were legendary: Frank O'Connor fondly recalled "the warmth and kindness, which enfolded you like an old fur coat". He was the most loyal of friends, and in the notoriously fractious Dublin literary world Russell tried to keep the peace between his endlessly quarrelling colleagues: even the abrasive Seamus O'Sullivan could be forgiven a great deal, simply because "Seamus drinks too much". His interests were wide-ranging; he became a theosophist and wrote extensively on politics and economics, while continuing to paint and write poetry. Æ claimed to be a clairvoyant, able to view various kinds of spiritual beings, which he illustrated in paintings and drawings. He was noted for his exceptional kindness and generosity towards younger writers: Frank O'Connor termed him "the man who was the father to three generations of Irish writers", and Patrick Kavanagh called him "a great and holy man". P.L. Travers, famous as the creator of Mary Poppins, was yet another writer who gratefully recalled Russell's help and encouragement. He used the pseudonym "AE", or more properly, "Æ".

Richter war Sohn eines Arztes und studierte in Mailand und München Philosophie und Sprachen, bevor er sich der Malerei zuwandte.

        Photograph Album from Egypt and Holy Land, Containing 147 Gelatin Silver Print Photographs

      Cairo, Giza, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, circa 1925., 1925. Album of professional and outstanding photographs from Egypt and the Holy Land, centering largely on indigenous customs and trade, with some views of ancient and sacred sites. Contains 147 gelatin silver print photographs mounted with corners onto black cardstock leaves separated with tissue guards. Photographs measure approximately 9 x 6,5 cm. Approximately two thirds of the album is from Egypt and one third from Palestine. Oblong 8vo. string-tied leather album with embossed Egyptian motif, stitched leather edging, and patterned colour endpapers, measuring approximately 33 x 24 cm. Very Good Condition, a most pleasing album. A beautifully illustrated leather bound album houses striking superb photographs of Egyptian and Palestinian people and their traditional ways of life. Scenes of indigenous life abound in this skillful visual chronicle, which centers largely on Arabic tradition, customary gender roles, conveyance and trade of goods. Only a scant few iconic images of the pyramids and sphinx of Giza, and wooden felucca sail boats on the Nile are present. Scenes captured in Egypt are arresting, nostalgic, and indelible; the streets of Cairo bustling with vendors and working civilians. Religious traditions are shown with men prostrate in a public group prayer and mysteriously veiled women in niqabs. The men are generally photographed employing their trade, including two carpenters working in tandem to cut timber, a weaver with spinning wheel, ploughing crops with an ox-driven wood sledge, other field work, shoe shiners, a barber, and fishermen with large nets. Most interesting is a man pressing garments by foot with a hot iron. Reprieve comes in the form of smoking hooka pipes. The photographer has captured some most unusual images of entertainers, including an early moving picture box, and a musician with monkeys. Women carry terracotta vessels and baskets of birds on their heads, launder clothing in the rivers, care for infants, and sell at the marketplace. Various street vendors and food carts are photographed, selling produce, nuts, making traditional taboon or markook bread, and coffee. Great use is made of various forms of carts, from selling food, to transporting people. Men are pulling large carts stacked with bamboo stalks. A floating bridge platform transports these carts, horses and people across the Nile. Camels also prove most efficient for conveyance, as caravans cross the desert and others are porters laden with enormous sacs. Irrigation and water well systems are powered by other beasts of burden. Views in Jerusalem include the wailing wall, the Dome of the Rock, the Tower of David, Damascus Gate in the Old City, an arch covered cobblestone street, the Jerusalem Church of all nations also known as the Church or Basilica of the Agony which opened in June 1924 and is located on the Mount of Olives next to the Garden of Gethsemane. A sojourn to Bethlehem reveals its humble and authentic Old World charm with a view of Rachel's Tomb, the inside of the tomb of Jesus, magnificent churches, and more. .
