        Winnie the Pooh

      London: Methuen & Co., Ltd., 1926 Illustrated by Ernest H. Shepard. First edition, first printing. Publisher's dark green cloth, with Christopher Robin and Pooh image stamped in gilt to the front board, spine lettering in gilt, top edge gilt, pictorial endpapers. Fine, with bright gilt, corners only very lightly bumped, former owner's 1926 inscription and bookplate to a front flyleaf, black and white magazine-clipped photograph of Milne and his son to the verso of a front flyleaf, otherwise bright and clean pages. Overall, a very handsome and extremely bright copy. Winnie-the-Pooh is the second in Milne's series of children's books featuring the adventures of the teddy bear character Winnie the Pooh and his friends. Each telling an individual and complete story, the chapters of Winnie-the-Pooh can be read independently of one another. Milne created the story of Winnie the Pooh for his son Christopher Robin, who had a teddy bear named Edward Bear. In his introduction, Milne explains how Edward Bear became Winnie the Pooh, although he notes that "we can't remember whether Winnie is called after Pooh, or Pooh after Winnie." The name "Winnie" comes from a bear that the Milnes saw at the London Zoo, while the name "Pooh" is from a swan whom the fictional Christopher Robin encountered in When We Were Very Young (1924).. Illus. by Shepard, Ernest H.. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Fine.

        Five 1920s Regional Tourist Guides

      Tashkent & Samarkand: Central Asian Committee for Museums and the Protection of Monuments, Art and Nature, and Uzbek Committee of Cultural and Natural Monuments,, 1926-9. Small octavo. Original pictorial wraps. Illustrations and plans to the text. All with careful restoration at the spines, overall lightly browned, but remaining very good. Uncommon, unusual and attractive tourist pieces. There are two editions of M.E. Masson's guide to The Registan and its Madrassas, first published Tashkent 1926 and subsequently Samarkand 1929, just four copies of the former and none of the latter on OCLC; guides dedicated to the Gur Emir and Timur's Mosque, also by Masson, single copies of these editions on OCLC; and a general guide to the sights of Samarkand by Vjatkin. Interesting insight into beginnings of "cultural-historical" tourism in the Soviet Union's Central Asian republics. Mikhail Evgenievich Masson (1897?1986) was an prominent Samarkandian Soviet archaeologist, the founder of the Central Asian School of Archaeology, and a fellow of the Turkmen Academy of Sciences. Following the First World War, Masson, who had begun training as an engineer at the Petrograd Polytechnic Institute in 1916, returned to his home city and began to work on the preservation of the landmarks of Samarkand. He was made curator of the Samarkand Oblast Museum, and began conducting archaeological excavations, adding to the museums' collection such finds as panels from the Samanid palace at Afrasiyab. In 1924, Masson went to Tashkent to become head of the archaeological department of the Museum of Central Asia. He led further expeditions including the Termez Archaeological Complex Expedition (1936?8); supervised the archaeological expedition accompanying the construction of the Great Ferghana Channel (1936), and was made head of STACE - the South Turkmenistan Complex Archaeological Expedition - (1946?68), and KAE - Kesh Archaeological Expedition - 1963. Vjatkin was also involved in Masson's Afrasiyab excavations, publishing on the wall-paintings.

        Spluga della preta. Raccolta di 9 fotografie originali relative all'esplorazione avvenuta nel settembre 1926

      s.e., s.l. 1926 - Raccolta di 9 fotografie originali applicate su cartoncino raffiguranti momenti delle esplorazioni avvenute nel settembre 1926 alla Spluga della Preta. Le foto (cm. 9x 6 e 14 x 9,5) sono tutte in esterno e riproducono perlopiu' momenti della discesa del primo pozzo attraverso un complicato sistema di paranchi. Una rappresenta il gruppo di speleologi sull'orlo della dolina attorno ad un cartello riportante la scritta - Proprieta' Sucai Verona -. Dopo la prima esplorazione datata giugno 1925, durante la quale il gruppo del Sucai Verona raggiunse il fondo del pozzo d'entrata profondo 130 metri, ne venne allestita una seconda nella primavera del 1926, esplorazione che raggiunse l'orlo del secondo pozzo (da 108 metri). A questo punto punto, Cabianca, Cipriani e compagni, convinti dell'eccezionalita' dell'impresa tentano il coinvolgimento dei giornali e della macchina propagandistica del partito fascista. Proprio a questo momento risalgono le fotografie in questione. Infatti, nella foto di gruppo precedentemente citata, compare anche Luigi Freddi, firma di punta del Popolo d'Italia, uno dei fondatori del partito fascista, che, proprio a questa avventura dedico' un libro, pubblicato sempre nel 1926 da Corticelli e intitolato L'anticamera dell'inferno: esplorazione della piu' profonda voragine del mondo. A corredo del volume sono presenti diverse fotografie riprodotte, tra le quali alcune di quelle che qui proponiamo in originale. ITA

        Le film vi?rge Pathé. Manuel de développement et de tirage.

      Paris: Pathe-Cinema, 1926. Early Cinematographic Manual with Developed Film Samples Pathé-Cinéma. Le film vi?rge Pathé. Manuel de développement et de tirage. 8vo. xii, 155 pp. 6 leaves of plates containing 107 examples of film (some colored). Paris: Etablissements Pathé-Cinéma, 1926. 239 x 155 mm. Original publisher’s quarter morocco, marbled boards, lower corners just a bit bumped, very slight edgewear. Fine copy. Former owner’s signature on flyleaf.First Edition of this rare technical manual of motion picture film developing and printing, issued by the famous French firm founded by the Pathé brothers in the early days of cinematography. By the 1920s the Pathé firm was producing “the requisites for the entire motion picture process; i.e., raw stock, cameras, laboratory equipment, studio and projectors” (Jenkins, “History of the Motion Picture” [1920], reprinted in Fielding [ed.], Technological History of Motion Pictures and Television, pp. 1-6). The firm’s manual contains detailed technical instructions on motion picture film development and printing, as well as information on several Pathé innovations such as the Pathé-Baby 9.5 mm. motion picture projectors and cameras for amateur use (introduced in 1922), Pathé’s “film inversible” (reversal film), and the firm’s techniques for tinting film stock and for producing full-color motion pictures. A stunning feature of the manual is its set of 107 actual frames of motion picture film, illustrating correct and incorrect development, the effect of temperature on film processing, and the various uses of the “teintures Pathés” with which the firm colored its film stock. The manual’s introduction contains a brief (and adulatory) history of the Pathé firm, and the first chapter is devoted to a description of its factory in Vincennes.

Fine, bright, tight copy in price-clipped, bright dust jacket with minor wear to the spine ends and corners and with a small bruise at the upper third of the spine panel.

More of a weird menace novel with many elements of the traditional mystery novel, THE HAUNTING HAND is set in Astoria, New York involving players within the silent film industry.

A scarce item, especially in dust wrapper. "This was a Man...was refused a licence by the Lord Chamberlain because of its flippant approach to the theme - a faithless wife whose husband is having an affair with another woman. It was presented in New York (1926), Berlin (1927) and Paris (1928), but never in Britain." (Castle Noel, 1972). The play was finally produced in Britain at the Finborough Theatre in 2014.

        Le chameau. En 2 volumes.

(25 x 17 cm). 748 pp. (4), 207, (1) pp. With 98 plates (numbered I-LXXXVII [part 1] and LXXXVIII-XCVIII [part 2]) and some illustrations in text. Later light brown cloth. First and only edition of an extensive work on camels by commander Gaston Cauvet (1860-1950?). The first volume deals with the camel's origins and habitat (covering west and central Europe, including Russia, Greece and Cyprus; Cuba; North and South America; Africa; Australia and Java), its anatomy and physiology, the different breeds (including dromedaries), external features and internal organs, its nature and character, nutrition, diseases and their gaits. On many of those subjects, including the digestive system and the reproductive system of male camels this book was one of the earliest accounts, and it is still a valuable reference work. Other topics covered in this volume are the use of camels for transportation, the uses of their meat, fur, skin, bones and milk, and their economic use and value (covering pilgrimages, weddings, wars and raids). Volume 2 deals with camels in the history of the Middle East (including Egyptians, Persians, Macedonians, Arabs, Berbers, Mongolians and Turks) and with their role in religion, covering Hinduism, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, with a large section on the importance of the camel for the prophet Mohammed and for Muslims. Also covered is the camel in Arabic and French literature, and in art. - A very good copy. Mukasa-Mugerwa, The camel (camelus dromedarius): a bibliographical review, p. 11. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Biblia, Das Ist: Die Gantze Heilige Schrifft - Deudsch, D. Martin Luther (5 volumes)

      Bremer Presse [1926-1928] - An extraordinary publication by the Bremer Press of the "Martin Luther Bible". Translated by Luther directly from the Greek during his enforced sequestration in Wartburg Castle (1521-22), it was first published in 1545 and he continued to edit and refine his translation up to his death the following year. Translating directly from the Greek was a marked departure for the academics of the day, who relied on the Latin Vulgate translation and used Latin for their studies with Greek seldom used or even taught. Luther chose to translate from the Greek into the vernacular German language of the day, making the scriptures accessible to everyday people and, at the same time, providing a vehicle for a more unified German language. The Bremer Press, known for its interrelation of scholarship, type design, and book design, has provided a version of the Luther Bible edited by Professor Carl von Kraus (1868-1952), Professor of German Philology at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. (N.B., above info from Wiki and Ransom). ***DESCRIPTION: Set of five volumes, complete; Volume I: Die Bucher Mose; Volume II: Das Ander Teil des Alten Testaments; Volume III: Das Dritte Teil des Alten Testaments; Volume IV: Die Propheten; and Volume V: Das Neue Testament. The text is continuous, with no chapter or verse indications save in the bottom margin of each page; each book of text is delineated with its own sectional title page, each opens with a four- or five-line initial capital letter designed by Anna Simons. This set is bound in ivory tinted boards with the single word "Biblia" in gilt on the front, black leather spines, double raised bands, single gilt rule at the head and tail, "Biblia" and the volume number in gilt; top edges gilt, fore- and bottom edges rough-cut; endpapers of light tan laid paper; in the style of the Bremer Press (as with the Doves Press) the interior is free of illustration or ornamentation, the focus is on the integrity of design of the type and the overall work. Folio size (almost 14" tall) with the volumes unpaginated, printed on Zanders hand-made paper, special black-letter cut for this edition. Limited edition of 365 copies per Ransom, with each volume in this set numbered differently (Vol. I unnumbered, Vol. II - no. 56, Vol. III - no. 142, Vol. IV - no. 300, and Vol. V - no. 289). ***CONDITION: Fine, as new, the set appears never to have been used. Each volume has a strong, square text block, solid hinges, perfectly straight corners with no rubbing, the interiors are clean and bright, and all volumes are entirely free of prior owner markings. The slipcases are very good with overall minor soiling and edgewear, one of the five has a single split seam, approximately 3 inches long. ***CITATION: Ransom, Bremer Press no. 36. ***POSTAGE: Please note that due to the size and weight of this set additional postage will apply; we are happy to ship at cost to both domestic and international addresses, please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        Turbott Wolfe

      New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company. Near Fine in Good dj. (c.1926). First American Edition. Hardcover. NOISBN . [extremely light bumping to a couple of corners, no other significant wear, vintage price sticker and bookseller's label (from the famous San Francisco department store The White House) on rear pastedown; jacket has shallow chipping along bottom edge (both panels and spine), also a bit at the upper corners, and the rear flap, which had been detached, has been expertly re-attached by a professional paper conservator]. Plomer's remarkable debut novel, published when he was just 23, deals with "the experiences of an over-sensitive Englishman in Africa -- Africa with its burning sun, luxuriant vegetation, its superstition, and the cruelty and stupidity of its white invaders," with its title character described by one latter-day critic as "a bizarre combination of Gatsby and Prufrock (and a possible genius)." When the book was reprinted a decade ago, Nadine Gordimer declared in a new introduction that it is "an inexplicable lapse on the part of literary scholars and critics that 'Turbott Wolfe' is not recognised as a pyrotechnic presence in the canon of renegade colonialist literature along with Conrad.? It caused a furor in South Africa upon its publication (by Leonard and Virginia Woolf's Hogarth Press), for its frank depiction of interracial love, and for daring to criticize the country's whites and their supposed benevolence toward the black population. Although born in South Africa, Plomer spent most of his childhood in England before returning with his family to the country (a British dominion until 1931), where he eventually became involved (with Laurens van der Post and Roy Campbell) in the short-lived magazine "Voorslag" ("Whiplash"), through which they intended to agitate in favor of racial equality. Local outrage over that publication and "Turbott Wolfe" itself led to Plomer's departure from South Africa in 1926; after several years in Japan, he returned to England, where his friendship with the Woolfs facilitated his acceptance into the British literary establishment. Although he wrote relatively little fiction other than short stories after 1934, he was a prolific reviewer, poet and essayist, and had a good deal of influence as the chief reader for publisher Jonathan Cape. He also collaborated (as librettist on several works) with composer Benjamin Britten, and published two autobiographies. The American edition of this landmark novel is much less common than the original Hogarth Press issue, and boasts a colorful dust jacket designed by Winold Reiss, a German-born American artist and graphic designer whose work showed the influence of Native American art and culture. [PLEASE NOTE that the rear jacket flap has been reattached by a professional paper conservator.] [This item is featured in ReadInk's E-Catalog 3.1, which can be perused in full at our website.
