James Joyce
Paris: Shakespeare and Co. Condition: Very Good. The August 1925 stated 6th printing of "Ulysses", representing still a very early edition resulting from the legendary coupling of bookseller/makeshift publisher (Sylvia Beach) and author (James Joyce). This copy has been handsomely re-bound in half-leather by J. MacDonald of Norwalk, Connecticut and bears the binder's stamp at the verso of the half-title. A solid, VG copy in its half-morocco over marbled boards. Light rubbing to the panels, pronounced rubbing andf flaking at the leather spine labels. Small, discreet former owner name plate to the front pastedown and smaill ink signature at the half-title. A bit of spotting at the lower-edge and very light soiling to the preliminaries. Still though, tight and quite well-preserved. Thick quarto, 736 pgs. Also includes handsome custom-made slipcase (with leather spine label) and matching chemise.

LOCKE, Alain, editor
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.

Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen.

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.

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.

Doyle, Arthur Conan
New York: A. L. Burt Company, Publishers, [1925].. Octavo, pp. [1-10] [1-3] 4-309 [310: blank], four inserted plates, original red-brown cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold. Photoplay edition. Illustrated with four stills from the landmark 1925 First National silent movie directed by Harry O. Hoyt with special effects by Willis O'Brien (who later animated the creatures for King Kong). The 1925 film was a "lost" film for over 50 years. By contractual agreement, all known prints (positive and negative) were destroyed in 1929. Only a truncated 16 mm print was extant until a nearly full length print was discovered in the film archives of the Czech Republic in the 1990s. Today two restored versions exist, one a third longer than any other version with 30 minutes of footage replaced (nearly complete, and available on DVD), the other a restoration owned by Eastman Kodak (information from an article at the dvd journal website). The film was based on the first Professor Challenger story, in which the scientist and his exploring party locate a remnant of the prehistoric world on a plateau in South America. Challenger's narrative "remains the most famous of its type and has served as a model since its publication." - Anatomy of Wonder (1981) 1-63. "... written as pure entertainment, and as such it is a huge success. It stands at the very end of an era of great adventure stories, and it is the equal of anything else in its genre." - Survey of Science Fiction Literature III, pp. 1270-73.

RYLANDS, George.
London: Printed & published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf at The Hogarth Press, 1925. Quarto, 8pp. Original brown and black marbled wrappers, cream label printed in black to front cover. Spine partly split at head, couple of shallow chips to head of front wrapper and foot of rear wrapper, tips a little rubbed and creased, contents clean. A very nice copy. First edition, first impression, inscribed by the author on the day of publication, "Hamo from Dadie, Dec: 1st '25", on the front free endpaper. One of just 300 copies, this was the first published work of George "Dadie" Rylands (1902–1999), who was best-known for his acting, theatre directing, and Shakespearean scholarship. Rylands was a protégé of Lytton Strachey at Cambridge, and part of the "Second Generation" Bloomsbury set, dedicating this work to Virginia Woolf. The Woolfs employed him for a short period at the Hogarth Press the year before this work was published, while he waited for his fellowship at King's College, Cambridge to be awarded. There, in 1928, he hosted the luncheon party that partly inspired Woolf to write A Room of One's Own. It is possible that the recipient was the artist and sculptor Sir William "Hamo" Thornycroft (1850–1925). Woolmer 75. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

Valéry Larbaud. Chas Laborde (illustrateur).

Couverture rempliée illustrée par l'artiste. Très bon état. Infimes traces à la couverture restée très fraîche (petite fente en pied, voir photo). Intérieur parfaitement frais. Nouvelle édition. Tirage à 364 exemplaires seulement. Celui-ci, 1 des 300 exemplaires sur vergé de Rives. Il a été tiré 14 ex. sur Japon, 50 ex. sur Hollande et 300 ex. sur vergé. "Tous ceux qui l'approchaient, tous ceux auxquels elle parlait, ceux qui jouaient avec elle, formaient, autour d'elle, une sorte de cour d'amour; c'étaient ses chevaliers. Les chevaliers de Fermina Mârquez, donc, étaient admirés de tous les élèves, et peut-être même des plus jeunes parmi les surveillants. De ces belles promenades dans le parc, nous ne rapportions plus l'odeur du tabac fumé en cachette, mais le parfum des petites Américaines. Était-ce le géranium ou le réséda ?" (Source : Folio, Gallimard, 1992). À partir d'un projet très ancien, Larbaud écrit ce livre de 1906 à 1909. Il s'inspire d'une jeune fille prénommée Encarnación, rencontrée en Espagne. Il aime secrètement la tante d'Encarnación, dont le prénom est Fermina. Mais l'histoire qu'il raconte dans son roman est fictive. Le titre est d'abord Conchita, puis Histoire de la Encarnación et de ses admirateurs, puis Encarnación Barea. Le récit est publié en feuilleton dans quatre numéros de la NRF, de mars à juin 1910. Il paraît en volume chez Fasquelle, sous le titre Fermina Márquez, en 1911. « Chef-d … [Klicken Sie unten für eine ausführliche Beschreibung]

BORN, MAX; JORDAN, PASCUAL
Berlin: Julius Springer, 1925. First edition offprint. EXTREMELY RARE FIRST EDITION OFFPRINT of a critical paper by Max Born and Pascual Jordan that "defines the direction towards a valid Quantum Theory". "The decisive step, which defines the direction towards a valid Quantum Theory, is contained in the publication by Max Born and Pascual Jordan (Z. Phys. 33, 11 June 1925)... Born recognized that Quantum Mechanics without Quantum Optics is logically inconsistent; quantization of the action variable has to affect all physical variables ands all lakes of nature. Born's conviction was strengthened by new experimental information, which had become available. Coincidence experiments by W. Bothe and H. Geiger had shown that Einstein's photon concept requiring momentum and energy conservation for all elementary processes gained strong support from their experimental results on the Compton Effect... "In is in this paper of June 1925 that Born's quantization concept is extended from Quantum Mechanics to include Quantum Optics. The introduction of Quantenmechanik by Born had been based on quantization of the action variable, requiring discontinuous dynamic; but this same reasoning has to affect not only mechanical variables but the radiation field as well. Born and Jordan introduce the expression "Quantenoptik", attributing its basic laws to Einstein. Born's intention to transform continuous classical mechanics into a discontinuous Quantum Mechanics logically had to be compatible with Einstein's Quantum Optics. "A general principle is formulated, which serves as guide on the path fro … [Klicken Sie unten für eine ausführliche Beschreibung]

Frankfurt/Main, Insel-Verlag, 1925 - 1927. 852 Seiten. 137 ganzseitige, goldumrahmte Miniaturen. Entstehung: zwischen 1310 und 1340 im Bodenseegebiet und der Nordschweiz. Die Manessische Liederhandschrift ist eine der schönsten und kostbarsten Handschriften des Mittelalters. Diese Gesamtausgabe des deutschen Minnesangs ab 1160 enthält etwa 6000 Strophen meist weltlicher Lyrik von 140 Dichtern. Mit ihren 137 ganzseitigen Miniaturen in noch frisch gebliebenen Farben ist die Handschrift ein einzigartiges Dokument. Die "Manessische Liederhandschrift" enthält ausschließlich dichterische Werke in mittelhochdeutscher Sprache. Ihr Grundstock entstand um 1300 in Zürich, wahrscheinlich im Zusammenhang mit der Sammeltätigkeit der Zürcher Patrizierfamilie Manesse, nach der sie auch ihren heutigen Beinamen trägt. Mehrere Nachtragsgeschichten kamen bis ca. 1340 hinzu. Der Kodex gilt als repräsentative Summe des mittelalterlichen Laienliedes und bildet für den "nachklassischen" Minnesang die Haupt- und weithin die einzige Quelle. Hervorragende Lichtdruckausgabe. Aufgrund der brillanten Qualität des Faksimiledrucks und seiner Nähe zur Handschrift wird im Foyer des Obergeschosses der Universitätsbibliothek Heidelberg die Erstausgabe von 1925 - 1927 dem Publikum präsentiert. Im direkten Vergleich der Faksimile-Editionen von 1925 und 1975 wird man in jedem Fall der Erstausgabe den Vorzug geben.

A.A. Milne
1925. For sale here is a very rare limited edition signed by both A. A. Milne and E. H. Shepard, this being number 7 of only 100 copies. The condition is very good, with minor shelf wear and bumped corners, see photos as they form part of this description. The green binding still looks fantastic and crisp, despite being 92 years old. I have been able to locate only one other copy from this short run of 100 copies, number 18, on Abebooks which is priced at over £5800. I am offering this copy for sale at a much lower price in order to sell it. It is with regret that I am selling this book, along with some other signed Milne/Shepard books I'll be listing over the next week or so, but sadly I need to. I am not open to any offers on price as, although I need to sell these, I'm not willing to let them go for less than I deem appropriate. Postage is free, but I will only dispatch to buyers within the UK. Items will normally be dispatched the day following payment, via Royal Mail Special Delivery which is a next day guaranteed tracked service. Thank you for taking the time to view my listing.

MILNE, A.A.
Methuen -8, 1925. Four volumes, all first deluxe editions. Each in their original publisher's boxes and each, except for Now We Are Six, with the original glassine wrapper. Bound in full soft leather with elaborate gilt decoration to spines and gilt vignettes to covers. These deluxe editions are all edges gilt, have pictorial endpapers and line drawings by E.H. Shepard. The bindings were published in three colours, in this set, When We Were Very Young and the Now We Are Six are in blue, and The House At Pooh Corner and Winnie the Pooh are in red. A superb set, all fine copies with the glassines in very good to fine condition, with that of The House At Pooh Corner lacking a portion of its front flap, now laid in. In 1925 Methuen decided to introduce a small number of these deluxe bindings for Milne's children's books. At this time When We Were Very Young was in its tenth printing and Winnie the Pooh about to be published. The bindings are in lovely soft leather, which has a tendency to become very rubbed. It is uncommon to find attractive copies in their original state. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

(Seurat, Georges)(Quinn, John) Davies, Arthur B
337 E. 57th street, New York: 2 January 1925. 12 lines (50 words). 1 vols. 8vo. Arthur B. Davies (1862-1928), American artist and organizer of the International Exhibition of Modern Art (the 1913 Armory show), knew the visionary American collector John Quinn in connection with Quinn's loans to the exhibition. Davies was also influential as a patron of the arts. The "dispersal of Davies's art collection at public auction in April 1929 probably lent impetus to the establishment of the Museum of Modern Art in New York later that year" (ANB). Davies writes to Miss Thompson, "Quinn's favorite secretary," declining an invitation to attend the presentation of the Georges Seurat canvas Le Cirque to the French nation, which took place on 30 January 1925. The painting was the first gift by an American to the Louvre and is now held at the Musée d'Orsay. cf. Reid, The Man from New York, pp. 647-51. Provenance: from the family of Julia Quinn, sister of John Quinn, and by descent in her family. Fine, with conjugate bank.

Dora Kallmus
A wonderful portrait of Dora Kallmus (Madame D'Ora) during the Parisian period. Original vintage gelatin silver baryte photo unmounted. Gold tone. Great tonal range. 1925c. Author: Madame D'Ora - Wien, Paris. The photo is not signed (attributed to). In very good condition, excellent (see scan). Photo size: 23,8x18 cm. Dora Kallmus Dora Philippine Kallmus (also known as Madame D’Ora; 20 March 1881 – 28 October 1963) was an Austrian fashion and portrait photographer. Dora Philippine Kallmus was born in Vienna, 1881. In 1905 she was the first woman to be admitted to theory courses at the Graphische Lehr- und Versuchsanstalt (Graphic Training Institute). That same year she became a member of the Association of Austrian photographers. In 1907, she established her own studio with Arthur Benda in Vienna called the Atelier d’Ora or Madame D’Ora-Benda. The name was based on the pseudonym “Madame d’Ora”, which she used professionally. D’ora and Benda operated a summer studio from 1921 to 1926 in Karlsbad, Germany, and opened another gallery in Paris in 1925.[3] She was represented by Schostal Photo Agency (Agentur Schostal)[4] and it was her intervention that saved the agency’s owner after his arrest by the Nazis, enabling him to flee to Paris from Vienna. Her subjects included Josephine Baker, Coco Chanel, Tamara de Lempicka, Alban Berg, Maurice Chevalier, Colette, and other dancers, actors, painters, and writers.
