        Ritual and Belief in Morocco (Two Volumes)

      London: MacMillan and Co., 1926. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine. Westermarck, Edward. Ritual and Belief in Morocco (Two Volumes). London, Macmillan and Co. 1926. First Edition. Two octavo volumes. Hardcover. Bound in Olive cloth with gilt moorish design to front and gilt titles to spine. 608, 629 pages. With 140 illustrations in black and white plus a foldout map of Morocco at end of volume two. Edward Westermarck made twenty-one separate journeys to Morocco between the years 1898 and 1926 which amounted to seven full years in Morocco, visiting towns and tribes in different parts of the country, meeting local people and learning about their language and culture; his findings are noted in this two-volume set. There is extensive reference material, including Westermarck?'s system of transliteration and a comprehensive list of the tribes and districts mentioned in the text. The author explores the ritual and magical beliefs of the Moroccans, with emphasis on Berber tribes, with extensive coverage of the idea of the Jinn (Jnun), curses and omens, Witchcraft, the Evil Eye and other beliefs and superstitions relating to spirits and healing. He also discusses such areas as the rites and beliefs connected with the Islamic calendar, agriculture, and childbirth. A very valuable and sought after work. Westermarck (1862 ?- 1939) was a Finnish philosopher and sociologist. Among other subjects, he studied exogamy and the incest taboo. The phenomenon of reverse sexual imprinting (when two people live in close domestic proximity during the first few years in the life of either one, both are desensitized to sexual attraction), now known as the Westermarck effect, was first formally described by him in his book The History of the Human Marriage (1891). He has been described as the ?"first Darwinian sociologist" or "the first sociobiologist.?" A tiny bit of wear to cloth at head of spine on both volumes and some very light corner bumps to volume one, otherwise this is a fine and outstanding set.

Les deux premiers volumes sont la réimpression de la première édition de 1826, le troisième volume "Supplément aux mémoires et souvenirs", récit anecdotique de la collaboration de Gaudin avec Napoléon, est une réimpression de l'édition de 1834. "Ces mémoires sont d'une grande importance pour l'histoire des finances impériales." Jean Tulard. MARTIN-MICHEL-CHARLES GAUDIN (1756-1841) MINISTRE DES FINANCES DE L'EMPEREUR NAPOLEON, DUC DE GAËTE Les débuts de carrière sous l'Ancien Régime : Celui qui devait être le ministre des Finances du Consulat et de l'Empire du 11 novembre 1799 (20 brumaire an VIII) au 1er avril 1814 et du 20 mars au 22 juin 1815, est né à Saint-Denis, près de Paris, le 16 janvier 1756. Il était le fils de Charles Gaudin, avocat au Parlement de Paris et de Louise-Suzanne Ragot, son épouse. Ayant fait de brillantes études au collège Louis-le-Grand et un peu de droit, il entre en 1773, comme surnuméraire dans les services de l'administration des finances ; en 1777, à vingt et un ans, il est nommé "premier commis" (c'est-à-dire chef de division) à la tête du département des impôts directs (taille et capitation). En 1791, Louis XVI le nomme à la Trésorerie Nationale en qualité de commissaire, où il remplit sa tâche avec beaucoup de talent et de courage. Il n'hésite pas à s'opposer au paiement de traites frauduleuses émises par le général Dumouriez, alors tout puissant ; ensuite, face à Robespierre il sauve, avec l'aide de Cambon, la vie des 48 receveurs-généraux des Finances, que la Convention voulait conduire à l'échafaud, dans la même charrette que celle des fermiers-généraux. Démissionnaire de sa charge de commissaire en juin 1795, Gaudin se retire dans sa propriété, à Vic-sur-Aisne, près de Soissons. En novembre, le Directoire le nomme ministre des Finances. Il refuse, répondant à Sieyès : "la faiblesse du pouvoir est trop grande. Les esprits ne sont pas prêts. Là où il n'y a ni finances, ni moyens d'en faire, un ministre est inutile." En mai 1799, il oppose un nouveau refus. Toutefois, il accepte le poste de "commissaire général des Postes aux lettres et aux chevaux", où, manifestement, il fallait remettre de l'ordre. Ministre des Finances sous le Consulat : la confiance de Bonaparte : Le 18 Brumaire et le Consulat vont orienter sa destinée. Dès le soir du 19 Brumaire an VIII (10 novembre 1799), Sieyès, consul provisoire, le convoque au Palais du Luxembourg. Gaudin raconte : à peine introduit, "je vis Sieyès venir à moi, en me disant : "Eh bien ! vous m'avez refusé il y a six mois !." - "Eh bien ! répondis-je, j'accepte aujourd'hui". - "je vous reconnais là, répliqua-t-il, en me tendant la main. Entrez là, vous y trouverez le Général". "Je trouvais en effet un personnage qui ne m'étais connu que par la haute renommée qu'il s'était déjà acquise : d'une taille peu élevée, vêtu d'une redingote grise, extrêmement maigre, le tient jaune, l'oeil de l'aigle, les mouvements vifs et animés. Il donnait, lorsque j'entrai, des ordres au commandant de la garde. Après que celui-ci se fut retiré, il vint à moi de l'air le plus généreux. "Vous avez, me dit-il, longtemps travaillé dans les finances ? ". - "Pendant vingt ans Général !". - "Nous avons grand besoin de votre secours et j'y compte. Allons, prêtez serment, nous sommes pressés". Cette formalité remplie, il ajouta : "Le dernier ministre du Directoire va être informé de votre nomination. Rendez-vous dans deux heures au ministère pour en prendre possession et donnez-nous, le plus tôt que vous le pourrez, un rapport sur notre situation, en même temps que sur les mesures à prendre pour rétabl [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      Paris: Bernard Grasset, 1926. First French Edition, preceding all others. Copy No. 1 of seven copies on Japon, numbered 1-5, and two hors commerce copies numbered HCI and HCII. Warmly inscribed by the author on the half title page: "à Monsieur Brun / qui a si cordialement accueilli mon dèbut. / Avec la reconnaisance de Rene Clair," translating roughly to "To Mr. Brun / Who so cordially welcomed my debut. / With appreciation, Rene Clair." Published about a year after Clair's film debut, "The Phantom of Moulin-Rouge" ("Le fantôme du Moulin-Rouge") and translated ten years later in English as "Star Turn" by Chatto and Windus, in a hardcover edition. The great French film director's first book, a novel about a film star who becomes lost in his own character, and devises a scheme to make a film with God as a means of escape. Clair's evocative, fantastical style echoed the work of his American counterpart, Frank Borzage, and was a monstrous influence on the French New Wave. Some very slight wear to the first leaf from earlier erasures, else Fine and unread. A spectacular copy.

        TAMING THE BIG BEND. A HISTORY OF THE EXTREME WESTERN PORTION OF TEXAS FROM FORT CLARK TO EL PASO.

      Privately printed, [1926]., 1926. First edition. 8vo. Purple cloth, gold stamping on front cover and spine, viii, 215 pp., frontis. [photograph of the author's father], preface, illustrated, plates, portraits, folding map bound-in at rear of book, index. BTB 184 says, "This worthwhile account of the Big Bend region during the 19th century is especially valuable because one of Shipman's major sources was her pioneer father, of whom she writes: 'To my father, Captain Pat Dolan, I am especially indebted. He has lived on the Texas frontier for seventy-five years and with remarkable clearness of mind recalls the stirring events of the days gone by.' She also quotes extensively from other pioneers and transients in the region, such as John L. Bullis, commander of Indian Scouts under Mackenzie; A. J. Fairmore and P. Bougad on the El Paso Salt War; Mexican outlaw Victor Ochoa; and Texas Ranger T. T. Cook. The work contains chapters on the early mail routes, the boundary commission, the camel experiment and transportation, the military posts, freighting, civil affairs, Indian Campaigns, the El Paso Salt War, Texas Ranger campaigns, ranching, outlaws, mining, and Mexican revolutionary activities after the turn of the century. This is followed by a section of sketches of early pioneer and ranching families." Six Guns 2006 says, "Scarce." "In a chapter entitled 'Law West of the Pecos' the author deals with the Texas Rangers and lawlessness. In another chapter there is mention of the Lincoln County War, Billy the Kid, John Wesley Hardin, John Selman, and other gunmen of the Southwest." Former owner's inked name and address on the front pastedown sheet, else a very good square copy. A fine account of the early Anglo settlement of the Big Bend region.

        Bye-Bye to BOWD Being a Dinner Given By The Members of the B.G.S. To celebrate The Leave-Taking of my Lord The Bishop of Nouveau-Croix. On the occasion of his Pilgrimage to Rome MCMXXVI.

      London: Self-published., 1926. First edition. Paperback. Very Good. A large single sheet folded into 4. This was the menu to celebrate Edward Bouverie Hoyton ( BOWD) winning the Prix de Rome in 1926. The members of the B.G.S. (Bassett-Gray Society ) The cover is designed by Eric Fraser, who must have been 24 years old. (?'Nouveau-Croix?' translates as New Cross , this is where Goldsmiths Art College is based.) On reverse are the signatures of some of the well-wishers of the B.G.S who also attended these ?'Bibbings?'. They include Bouverie Hoyton, Paul Drury, William Morgan, Charles Thompson, S.W. Hayter, Henry Bassett, Graham Sutherland, Eric Fraser, Edmund Sullivan, Stanley Anderson, F.Marriott, Malcolm Osborne, Percy Buckmann, Cecil Notley, Clive Gardiner, Alfred Drury, (Paul Drury?'s father who was a sculptor), and Milner Gray. On the inside is the menu, and a is a list of ?'toasts?'. Loosely inserted, printed on hand made laid paper is yet another invite from ?'St.Bassett?' and ?'St. Gray?'. The menu is lightly foxed and dusty, the paper is a little worn. There is a previous owners (?) name on top margin. The separate invitation is clean and in very good condition. Scarce. (Only thirty three members-see details below, so the printing number would have been very small) Jolyon Drury has kindly sent us his book which I can highly recommend. ( Revelation to Revolution.The Legacy of Samuel Palmer.Drury and the Goldsmiths School in the 20th Century . Written and published by Jolyon Drury). All the extracts below are from his book. He explains in detail about the Milner Grey and Bassett-Gray Studio. Milner Gray first entered Goldsmiths in 1915, but due to the First World War he took time out and worked with the Royal Engineers in the camouflage section, returning to Goldsmiths Art College in 1919. Basset, like Gray, also returned from the war. By the time Drury and Sutherland had arrived at Goldsmith?'s, Gray and Bassett had set up their Bassett-Gray Studio. Working as an advertising and commercial art studio, with their offices in Imperial Buildings, Ludgate Circus, Gray and Bassett , being ex Goldsmiths students, needing young talented artists, got Goldsmiths students on their books. ?'Gray set out the principals of an association of essentially independent artists who, whilst working within the umbrella of Bassett-Gray, were free to develop their own specialisms. This philosophy survived through the development of the practice into The Industrial Design Partnership in 1935, to evolve into The Design Research Unit (DRU), which still survives to this day. It was this freedom of the association that attracted so many of the top designers and artists of the day.?'. ?'Milner Gray?'s mature vision of a group practice understood the value of social as well as industrious activity in team building both for his clients and supporters as well, as his associates. From 1924to 1929 there were annual dinners that were very carefully planned and choreographed to be seen to be different from anything else in the fledgling advertising industry.?' ?'The dinner was always held at ?'Ye Olde Dr. Butlers?'s Head Masons Yard in the city.?' These were called ?'Bibbings?'. ?'1926 celebrated Bouverie-Hoyton winning the Prix de Rome and Drury (Paul) election as ARE; the dinner was an altogether bigger affair. The menu was designed by Eric Fraser with the theme of Bouverie, nick ?-named Bowd as Durer?'s ?'Nemesis?' with Patrons drawn on the left and members drawn of the studio on the right . Thirty-three sat down to dinner on the 24th of September and ?'everyone?' was there; Alfred Drury RA, Malcolm Osborne RE,(to become President of the Royal Society of Painter Etchers and Engravers in 1938),Amor Fenn, (the then Head Master of Goldsmiths) , Frederic Marriott, (the recently retired Head master after thirty years?' service), Clive Gardener (the up and coming star), Edmund (Old Sully)

        Mathematical Investigations in the Theory of Value and Prices

      1926 - FISHER, Irving. Mathematical Investigations in the Theory of Value and Prices. New Haven: Yale University Press, 1926. Octavo, original navy cloth. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $6000.Photo-engraved later printing of Irving Fisher’s groundbreaking doctoral dissertation at Yale, presentation/association copy, with numerous diagrams for the design of a hydraulic mechanism demonstrating equilibrium prices in a multi-market economy, inscribed to a famous economist: “To Mr. O. Gressens with the compliments of Irving Fisher. February, 1927.”While a graduate student at Yale, Fisher “studied mathematics under Josiah Willard Gibbs and political economy with William Graham Sumner. When the time came for a doctoral dissertation, Sumner suggested he combine the two fields, and this was how Fisher came to write one of the earliest works of mathematical economics by an American. The dissertation was published in 1892 in the Transactions of the Connecticut Academy of Arts and Sciences and rapidly won him an international reputation… Fisher’s economic research was marked above all by an ideal of quantification. Political economy, as the discipline had traditionally been known, underwent an important theoretical change in the 1870s and 1880s. The new neoclassical theory identified value with utility, or more precisely with the utility of the last increment of a product consumed. Because utility was defined ‘at the margin,’ this increment could be regarded mathematically as a derivative. That is, the new marginal utility theory permitted the calculus to enter economics as the fundamental basis of theory. This was why Sumner could recommend that Fisher join his study of political economy to that of mathematics. He relied for his dissertation mainly on books by the British economist William Stanley Jevons and by two Germans, Rudolf Auspitz and Richard Lieben” (ANB). Although Fisher was unaware of Walras’s Éléments dÉconomie politique pure (1874) prior to this thesis, he acknowledged the priority of that work on equations of general equilibrium in his preface, as well as the importance of Edgeworth’s Mathematical Psychics on the subject of utility surfaces. It is generally agreed that “although only a student, Fisher had independently developed a theory of general economic equilibrium that was identical to part of Walras’s and included the concept of indifference surface, one of the fundamental bases of modern economic theory” (IESS V:477).In his dissertation, Fisher delineates the machine he constructed, a “hydraulic-mechanical analogue model of a general equilibrium system, replete with cisterns, valves, levers, balances and camps. Thus could he display physically how a shock to demand or supply in one of ten interrelated markets altered prices and quantities in all markets and changes the incomes and consumption bundles on the various consumers. The model is described in detail in the book; unfortunately both the original model and a second one constructed in 1925 have been lost to posterity” (The New Palgrave II). Fisher continued at Yale as a distinguished and popular professor until his retirement in 1935. His “impatience and opportunity” theory on interest was introduced in The Rate of Interest (1907), later revised and enlarged by him in The Theory of Interest (1930). Other major works include: The Purchasing Power of Money (1911), and the monumental The Making of Index Numbers (1922). Joseph Schumpeter “predicted in 1948 that Irving Fisher’s ‘name will stand in history principally as this country’s greatest scientific economist” (ANB). The first edition of this work was published in the Transactions of the Connecticut Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1892 and subsequently went out of print. This photo-engraved reprint edition was published in 1925 in respond to demand; this is the second printing of that edition. This presentation/association copy is inscribed to statistician/economist Otto [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Gouache and wash over pencil, titled and signed "Max 1926" (lower right). 12-1/4 x 6-1/4 in. Beerbohm's portrait of Thomas Hardy is one of what might be considered a series for which he is best remembered.

His subjects, or 'targets', included many well-known figures: Oscar Wilde, Thomas Hardy, Henry James, G. B. Shaw, W. B. Yeats, Joseph Conrad, Lytton Strachey, J. A. M. Whistler, Aubrey Beardsley, John Singer Sargent, Augustus John" (ODNB). Beerbohm (1872-1956) was a key figure in turn of the century English letters. His careeer as an artist began when he was just twenty in 1892 and he soon started contributing to The Yellow Book. He was a long time Dramam Critic for the Saturday Review though left the post when he moved to Italy where he spent (war years aside) the rest of his life.
