SMITH, Clark Ashton.
[The Author]. [1925]., [Auburn, California]. First Edition. INSCRIBED PRESENTATION COPY From Smith to Fellow 'Lovecraft Circle' author Donald Wandrei, quoting several lines from Baudelaire's LES FLEURS DU MAL: " For D.A. Wandrei, from the author. Il est des parfums frais comme des chairs d'enfants. — Et d'autres, corrompus, riches et triomphants, Ayant l'expansion des choses infinies. Oct. 25th, 1925". Octavo, original green paper wrappers stamped in gilt on the upper cover. 1 of 250 numbered copies, signed by the author, this being copy No. 9. With a few corrections throughout in the author's hand, as in most copies. Lower corners slightly knocked, two small edge-tears to overhanging yapp edges of the binding, a beautiful, nearly fine copy. Housed in a folding clamshell case with green leather spine titled in gilt, finely made especially for this copy by Gray Parrot. A major association copy - Wandrei paid half the printing costs to see SANDALWOOD through the press. A legendary rarity, and the most difficult of Smith's early poetry books to acquire. Wandrei was a correspondent of both Clark Ashton Smith and H.P. Lovecraft, he wrote tales for the pulp magazines (including WEIRD TALES) and was the co-founder of ARKHAM HOUSE with August Derleth in 1939. Wandrei died in 1987, this copy came from his estate and has the posthumous "From the Library of Donald Wandrei" bookplate loosely laid in. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

Alfred North Whitehead
Cambridge: At the University Press. Condition: Very good. Second Edition. xlvi, [1]-674, [1] pages. 7 x 10.5 inches. Original blue cloth. The first impression of the second edition, 1925. (the First edition was published in 1910). Volume One ONLY. Professionally recased, with joints repaired, new endpapers and repair to the base of the spine panel. Gold spine panel lettering still bright and clean. Generally bright internally. A sound copy now that it has been conserved. Previous owner name on half title page. Cloth. "...the most elaborate attempt up to that time to develop the fundamental notions of arithmetic from a precise set of axioms." (Boyer, A History of Mathematics Second edition). "Taken as a whole, the Principia fills a double role. First, it constitutes a formidable effort to prove, or at least make plausible, the philosophical thesis best described by Russell in his 'The Principles of Mathematics: That all pure mathematics deals exclusively with concepts definable in terms of a very small number of fundamental logical concepts, and that all its propositions are deducible from a very small number of fundamental logical principles.' ... commonly expressed by the assertion that logic furnishes a basis for all mathematics....The second role of the 'Principia' is the enrichment of mathematics with an impressive system, based on a thoroughly developmed mathematical logic and a set theory free of paradoxes, by which a substantial part of the body of mathematical knowledge becomes organized. The 'Principlia' is considered to be not only a historical masterpiece of math … [Click Below for Full Description]

Berg, Alban (1885-1935). Austrian composer of 20th century music whose compositions were influenced by the Romanticism of Gustav Mahler and Arnold Schoenberg's twelve-tone technique.
[December 28, 1925]. - Two pages with over 100 words penned in German on both sides of an 8-3/8 inch high by 5-1/4 inch wide sheet of buff colored paper. The composer's name and address are faintly stamped in light blue at top left of the first page. In his letter addressed to the Austrian composer and conductor Hans Pless, Berg thanks him for his letter and mentions that he is anxious to get to know Pless's Macbeth. The following excerpts are translated from the German Fractur handwriting: "I, too, was sorry that you were not present. It would have meant a great deal to me." Berg is quite probably referring to the premiere of his opera Wozzeck which took place on December 14, 1925, two weeks before the date of this letter. Berg goes on to say, "I am very anxious to get to know your Macbeth. As soon as I come to Vienna and catch my breath after all my unavoidable obligations, we must get together for that wonderful purpose. Or perhaps we will see each other at the Volksoper when you conduct...." Signed "Alban Berg". Folded once horizontally for mailing, there are tiny tears to the edges of the fold. Very good. A member of the Second Viennese School with Arnold Schoenberg and Anton Webern, Alban Berg (1885-1935) was an Austrian composer of 20th century music whose compositions were influenced by the Romanticism of Gustav Mahler and his teacher Arnold Shcoenberg's twelve-tone technique. He is perhaps best remembered for his Violin Concerto and his operas "Wozzeck" and "Lulu", the latter about a prostitute who crosses paths with Jack the Ripper. Although he finished the first … [Click Below for Full Description]

New York: Albert &Charles Boni, 1925. Very Good. First edition. 446pp., color portraits by Winold Reiss. Quarter cloth and decorated paper over boards. Edgewear on the boards as usual, else a very good copy lacking the rare dustwrapper. Drawing from works that Locke had compiled for the special issue of Survey Graphic, and greatly expanding it for this anthology. This book basically announced the Harlem Renaissance to the outside world. It would be hard to over emphasize the importance that this book played in the development and popularization of that movement. Includes articles, essays, poetry and fiction by Locke, Rudolph Fisher, Jean Toomer, James Weldon Johnson, Countee Cullen, Langston Hughes, Claude McKay, Jessie Fauset, Georgia Douglas Johnson, Eric Walrond, Bruce Nugent, William Stanley Braithwaite, Angelina Grimke, W.E.B. Du Bois, Walter White and many others. The portraits by Reiss, a German expressionist and teacher of Aaron Douglas, are particularly striking. Certain illustrations within the book bear the initials of Aaron Douglas; the endpaper designs are not signed and have sometimes been attributed to Reiss, but at that point the styles of Reiss and Douglas had converged to the extent that they are difficult to distinguish. The coarse cloth, combined with the thin paper jacket resulted in the jacket being easily destroyed. A high spot of the Harlem Renaissance. Blockson 101 #64.

WHITE, E.B.
[NY]: [The New Yorker], [1925]. [NY]: [The New Yorker]. [1925]. White's first book, a collection of humorous advertisements he wrote anonymously for The New Yorker, showing how subscribing to the magazine could offset one's social shortcomings and enhance one's prestige. Short vignettes, each illustrated with photographs White took of a couple, "Sterling and Flora Finny," embodied by mannequins from Wanamaker's department store. Inscribed by White (as "Sterling Finny") to himself: "To E.B. White/ without whose skill with a camera, untiring desire to make money, and patience, I and Flora would still be in Wanamaker's where we belong. - Sterling Finny." Taped to the verso of the title page is a typed note signed "EBW" and dated August 27, 1967, giving the background on the Finny advertisements and on the book, which was put together by the advertising department as a good-will offering to agents and customers, without Harold Ross's knowledge, and with a prologue and epilogue by John Hanrahan (credited in the book only in pencil, by White). A very scarce publication: OCLC locates only seven copies, none of them signed by the author let alone with a humorous inscription/commentary by him, and an explanation of the book's history. We can find only one appearance at auction listed in the online records we reviewed. A thin, hardbound volume: text block separated from the front board, thus a good copy, now housed in a custom clamshell case. The best possible copy of the scarce first book by the great New Yorker essayist and the author of the classic, Charlotte's Web, among many oth … [Click Below for Full Description]

WHITE, E.B.
[The New Yorker], [1925]. [NY]: [The New Yorker]. [1925]. White's first book, a collection of humorous advertisements he wrote anonymously for The New Yorker, showing how subscribing to the magazine could offset one's social shortcomings and enhance one's prestige. Short vignettes, each illustrated with photographs White took of a couple, "Sterling and Flora Finny," embodied by mannequins from Wanamaker's department store. Inscribed by White (as "Sterling Finny") to himself: "To E.B. White/ without whose skill with a camera, untiring desire to make money, and patience, I and Flora would still be in Wanamaker's where we belong. - Sterling Finny." Taped to the verso of the title page is a typed note signed "EBW" and dated August 27, 1967, giving the background on the Finny advertisements and on the book, which was put together by the advertising department as a good-will offering to agents and customers, without Harold Ross's knowledge, and with a prologue and epilogue by John Hanrahan (credited in the book only in pencil, by White). A very scarce publication: OCLC locates only seven copies, none of them signed by the author let alone with a humorous inscription/commentary by him, and an explanation of the book's history. We can find only one appearance at auction listed in the online records we reviewed. A thin, hardbound volume: text block separated from the front board, thus a good copy, now housed in a custom clamshell case. The best possible copy of the scarce first book by the great New Yorker essayist and the author of the classic, Charlotte's Web, among many other boo … [Click Below for Full Description]

FITZGERALD, F. Scott
Scribner, NY, 1925. Fitzgerald's third novel and, by consensus, his masterpiece -- one of the great American novels of the 20th century and the book that immortalized its author and placed him permanently in the American literary pantheon. This is the first issue, with "sick in tired" on page 205 and the various other textual variants that mark the first printing. Spotting to the endpages and covers, edge wear to the cloth; about a very good copy, lacking the rare dust jacket. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Horace Walpole
1925. Condition: Very Good. The Castle of Otranto & The Mysterious Mother by Horace Walpole. Edited with introduction and notes by Montague Summers. Embellished with seven color engravings. Limited edition! Very rare - only 220 copies printed in great Britain for the USA. Also featuring a very special and lovely binding. The design of the binding is based on engravings of architectural ornament made to illustrate the book "A Description of the Villa or Mr. Horace Walpole at Strawberry Hill, near Twickenham, Misslesex." written by Horace Walpole himself. The side design is almost a facsimile of the engraving depicting the chimney-piece in the China Room, of which Horace Walpole wrote: "The upper part of the chimney-piece is taken from the window of an ancient farm house, formerly Bradfield Hall, belonging to Lord Grimston in Essex; the lower part from a chimney at Hurst Monceaux in Sussex: it is adorned with the arms of Talbot, Bridges, Sacksville, and Walpole, the principle persons who have inhabited Strawberry Hill." The spine-design is adapted from a portion of the engraved frontispiece to the same "Description of Strawberry Hill." The book itself is in very good condition! This would make a wonderful addition to any collection. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Grimm, Jacob and Wilhelm; Nielsen, Kay (illustrator)
London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1925. Signed limited first edition of Kay Nielsen's illustrated tales from the Brothers Grimm, number 12 of 600 copies. Danish-born Nielsen was one of the most popular artists of the Golden Age of Illustration, creating dynamic new interpretations of classic works for the flourishing gift-book market of the early twentieth century. His distinctive style, often flat and minimalist, nevertheless creates depth through his unexpected use of color and playful attention to texture. Publishers Hodder and Stoughton open this collection with "Hansel and Gretel," accompanied by Nielsen's eerie depiction of the children approaching the candy cottage; other classic fairy tales included are "Rumpelstiltskin," "Rapunzel," and "Snowdrop," the inspiration for Snow White. A beautiful, near-fine copy. Single volume, measuring 11.75 x 9.5 inches: [10], 276. Publisher's full white pictorial cloth, front board stamped in gilt and blue with design by Nielsen, spine decorated in gilt and blue, top edge gilt, patterned red and gilt endpapers designed by Nielsen. Limitation page signed by Nielsen, followed by half title. Title page printed in red and black. Frontispiece and eleven full-page tipped-in color illustrations with printed tissue guards, twelve full-page black-and-white illustrations, and historiated initials printed in red and black. Light soiling to cloth, spine toned and spotted. Housed in custom blue cloth clamshell box with red morocco spine label.

J. Marrast
Editions d'Art Charles Moreau. A portfolio of quarter cloth, with paper covered boards. Unbound as issued. Ties intact. With 40 heliotype plates and plans, one sided and loosely inserted. The 12 colour Pochoirs coloured by Jean Saudé and two other plates have been removed. There are 40 plates of the original 54. Missing the eight text pages, including the title page. The gardens shown were designed by Albert Laprade, J. C. N. Forestier, Robert Mallet Stevens, Pierre Legrain, Charles Plume, Gabriel Guevrekian, Jacques Georges Lambert among many others. The Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes was a World's fair held in Paris, France from April to October 1925. The term Art Deco was derived by shortening the words Arts Décoratifs in the title of this exposition. Artistic creation in the années folles in France is marked by this event, when on this occasion many ideas of the international avant-garde in the fields of architecture and applied arts were brought together. Disbound. There is mild wear to the extremities, including mild bumping. Internally the pages are clean, with very slight browning to the page edges, and the very occasional handling mark. Fair due to missing plates, but otherwise very good indeed. Overall Condition: Fair Very Good Indeed.

P G Wodehouse
Herbert Jenkins, London. HARDBACK - A very good book with clean green boards. Free of any previous owner names or inscriptions. Internally, there is some foxing to the first and last couple of pages and to the inner text. The dust wrapper is in very good condition for its age with chipping to the spine tips, and also to the upper front panel, and to a lesser extent, the lower rear panel. The dust wrapper is the correct 1st impression with the correct price of 3/6net to the spine, and fourteen earlier Wodehouse titles to the rear flap. An exceedingly rare early Wodehouse title. Both the book and wrapper are the correct UK first edition, first impression from 1925. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]

GOLDEN COCKEREL PRESS
1925. Illustrated with nineteen wood-engravings by Eric Gill. Device on title-page and initial letters printed in red. One of 750 numbered copies. Small 4to., original white buckram with gilt lettering on spine, dust jacket. Waltham St. Lawrence, The Golden Cockerel Press. With some slight mottling to the binding and dust jacket a little dusty and chipped. The first of a biblical trilogy, to include Passio Domini Jesu Christi and David Jones' The Book of Jonah. It has some memorable images of Gill's trademark combination of sex and God, and it's interesting to note that Cave and Manson were still shocked in 2002 by the ?display of pubic hair as vulgar and blatant as one would find in any girlie magazine today.? In 1929 Gill himself, suppressed the reprinting of the small device on page 37 in Douglas Cleverdon's Engravings, the first large scale survey of his work, describing it as ?unsuitable?: only once its author has brought it to the viewer's attention does the viewer realise what he meant.
