        Winnie-the-Pooh

      London: Methuen & Co., (1926). Octavo, publisher?'s green pictorial cloth stamped in gilt, cartographic endpapers, top edge gilt, original unclipped pictorial dust jacket. Illustrated throughout with black-and-white line drawings. Bookplate to front pastedown. Corners lightly bumped; faint dampstain to lower corner of text block; tiny chips and closed tears to spine ends and corners of jacket with lightest smudging. First trade edition, first printing, of the second volume of Milne?'s celebrated ?"Christopher Robin?" books, following the adventures of Edward Bear, a.k.a. Winnie-the-Pooh, and his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood: "It's a very funny thought that, if Bears were Bees, / They'd build their nests at the bottom of trees. / And that being so (if the Bees were Bears), / We shouldn't have to climb up all these stairs." Inspired by Milne's son Christopher Robin and the boy?'s collection of stuffed animals, all four volumes of the series -- When We Were Very Young (1924), Winnie-the-Pooh (1926), Now We Are Six (1927), and The House at Pooh Corner (1928) -- were immediate bestsellers upon publication. This first trade edition of Winnie-the-Pooh was published simultaneously with a signed limited edition of two hundred copies. A very good example of a classic of modern children?'s literature.

He was one of the earliest innovators of the then-new literary art form called jazz poetry. Hughes is best known as a leader of the Harlem Renaissance.

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

      N.P.: Privately printed, [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.

        [Manuscrit autographe inédit] "Janet et Freud", notes pour une "causerie" chez Henri Codet le 20 avril 1926

      1926. Manuscrit. Bon. En Feuilles. In-4. 9 pp. in-4, ratures et corrections. Ensemble constitué de 3 pp. 1/3 de présentation générale, centrée sur la notion de psychasthénie forgée par Pierre Janet, 2 pp. intitulées "suite générale de l'exposé", des notes d'une écriture beaucoup plus empressée, et 2 pp. 1/3 de notes sur le livre de Pierre Janet "Les Obsessions et la psychasthénie". Pichon, qui allait devenir quelques mois plus tard le gendre de Janet en épousant sa fille Hélène, note "pour nous Français, qui aimons les analyses fines avant toute synthèse, la belle analyse de Janet sera appréciée même si la synthèse que nous serons amenés à adopter ensuite est différente de celle tentée par Janet". Le document nous informe qu'étaient présents à cette réunion du groupe de l'Evolution psychiatrique chez Henri et Odette Codet, tenue quelques mois avant la création officielle de la Société Psychanalytique de Paris, Angelo Hesnard, Rudolph Loewenstein, Adrien Borel ainsi que, probablement, Françoise Minkowska. On notera au passage que Pichon attribue à René Laforgue le joli néologisme "merdifier". Intéressant témoignage de la préhistoire du mouvement psychanalytique français. Personnage d'une grande richesse, d'une infinie curiosité et très complexe, Edouard Pichon est un contemporain et - par son intérêt pour le langage - un précurseur de Lacan, qui lui reprendra - entre autres - le concept de forclusion. Il est l'un des membres fondateurs du groupe de L'Evolution psychiatrique et de la Société Psychanalytique de Paris (dont il fut président de 1935 à 1937). Avec son oncle Jacques Damourette, il est l'auteur d'un monumental Essai de Grammaire française dont la publication s'étala sur près de 30 ans. Il fut également fervent maurrassien tout en étant dreyfusard, et le gendre de Pierre Janet sans être janetien. (Voir à son sujet, E. Roudinesco, Histoire de la psychanalyse en France, t. 1, pp. 297-320). Nota : ce document ne pourra être exporté en dehors de l'Union Européenne sans autorisation préalable du ministère de la Culture, formalité pouvant prendre plusieurs jours..

      Ullersricht bei Weiden in der Oberpfalz, 5. Dezember 1926. - 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-8vo. An den Physiker Ernst Gehrcke (1878–1960), eine „Demonstration des Stark-Effektes" betreffend: „[.] Es freut mich, daß Sie meiner Anregung Folge geben wollen. Die Polarisation der Lichtemission erscheint mir so wichtig, daß sie verdient Gegenstand zahlreicher Untersuchungen zu werden [.] Ich bin gegenwärtig zusammen mit meinem alten Studienfreund v. Hirsch [d. i. der Physiker und Chemiker Rudolf von Hirsch, 1875–1975, der Stark sein Privatlaboratorium in Planegg zur Verfügung gestellt hatte] mit der Nachprüfung dunkler neuerer Versuche beschäftigt. Eine derselben wollen wir mit Hilfe der von Ihnen angegebenen Röhre zur ‚Demonstration des Stark-Effektes’ anstellen. Sie haben in Ihrer Mitteilung angegeben, daß Ihre Röhre von dem Glasbläser Lenz in gebrauchsfertigem Zustand zu beziehen sei. Ich lege nun Wert darauf, möglichst bald in den Besitz der Röhre zu kommen [.] Besondere Sorgfalt soll Lenz auf weiche Verpackung legen, damit die Halter der Elektroden nicht infolge harter Stöße abbrechen [.]". – Johannes Stark hatte i. J. 1919 den Nobelpreis für Physik erhalten „für seine Entdeckung des Dopplereffekts bei Kanalstrahlen und der Zerlegung der Spektrallinien im elektrischen Feld" (Stark-Effekt). – Mit einigen kleinen Rand- und Faltenschäden. – Sehr selten.

        The Daisy: Senior Issue. June 1926

      Brooklyn, New York: East District High School. 1926. First. Edited by Daniel Fuchs. Large octavo. 39, [9] ads pp. Stapled and illustrated orange wrappers. Owner's name on front cover, vertical crease, small chip and modest wear on the wrappers, very good. Also includes a page signed by many classmates (but not, it appears, by Fuchs). Fuchs was the author of the classic Jewish-American novel A Summer in Williamsburg set in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Not only did Fuchs edit this high school literary magazine, he is pictured with a brief biography (as well as pictured in the class picture), and here publishes the Second Prize story in the school's Short Story Contest, "Isidore Goldfarb Reflects...", which is very reminiscent of his later fiction. The biography reveals that Fuchs edited and contributed to the magazine for most of his high school tenure, so presumably this is not his first published work. However, we've seen no other copy of the magazine. His first novel, A Summer in Williamsburg, was published in 1934, the same year as the other great Jewish-American Depression classic Call It Sleep by Henry Roth. Fuchs later devoted himself to writing film scripts, one of which, Love Me Or Leave Me, won him an Academy Award. .

Tall octavo, original printed pictorial self-wrappers, uncut, original glassine. Housed in custom full morocco slipcase. $1650.First edition, number 22 of only 100 copies issued, with 16 lovely woodcut-style illustrations by Alfred Martin as well as an extra suite of the illustrations. This copy signed and presented by 38 members of the staff and faculty of the Royal Conservatory of Liege to honorary director, Belgian conductor and composer Sylvain Dupuis.Born in Liège, recipient Sylvain Dupuis was trained at the Royal Conservatory there. After graduating in 1878, he was appointed to that school’s faculty as a professor, ultimately going on to become Director in 1911. Among his notable pupils were Hubert de Blanck and Charles Houdret. Dupuis worked actively as a composer during the early part of his career, winning the Belgian Prix de Rome for his cantata Le Chant de la Création in 1879 and composing two operas in the 1880s: Moîna and Coûr d’Ognon. With his 1890 appointment to the conducting staff at the Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie, he began to devote more of his energy to his work as an opera conductor. In 1900 he assumed the role of principal conductor at that house, where he conducted its first productions of such operas as Götterdämmerung (1891), Die Entführung aus dem Serail (1902), Tosca (1904), La Damnation de Faust (1906), Madama Butterfly (1909), Elektra (1910) and Roma (1913), among others. The work, presented to him by the faculty and staff of the conservatory at a banquet in honor of his long, loyal and fruitful career in service to the Royal Conservatory, is a collection of folktales from the heavily forested Ardennes region of Belgium and France. The presentation inscription reads: “La Direction, le Corps Professoral et l’Administration du Conservatoire Royal de Musique de Liège à son directeur honoraire: Monsieur Sylvain Dupuis, 12 Juin 1926.” Text in French. Only one copy is recorded in OCLC. Fine condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        La Mort de Venise

      Les Editions D'Art Devambez, Paris 1926 - Exquisite example of a French art deco livre d'artiste. This book is the 5th publication of the Societe Nouvelles des Editions D'Art Devembez, published under the direction of Edouard Chimot in 1926. This example of La Mort de Venise is one of thirty "hors commerce" (out of a complete edition size of 231) reserved for the artist and his friends. In addition to the 26 etchings that are included in the standard edition, these 30 examples include two additional states of each etching (one with a remarque); an additional suite of 3 states each of 4 etchings; and a drawing signed by the artist. These 30 examples are printed on "papier japon ancien." This volume is specially bound in a fine binding by Henri Blanchetiere in morocco, with the outside of the binding in burgundy and the inside in green, both with gilt trim; gilt edging; doublures in burgundy moire; marbled inner leaves. Perhaps the most extraordinary aspect of this binding, and what makes it truly unique, is that it incorporates in the front cover, the original copper etching plate of one of the 26 etchings, inscribed and signed by the artist. The book is housed in a marbled slipcase. The condition of the book is very good, except that the spine is a bit abraded and cracked, and on the verge of breaking at all four edges. The slipcase is chipped along its edges. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Foundations of the Science of War

      Hutchinson & Co., Paternoster Row, London 1926 - In very sound collectable clean condition on the whole. A touch of foxing but nothing really to be concerned about. Two small cup ring stains on front board which could be cleaned with care. Inscription by the author on ffep reads "To dearest Mother + Father with all good wishes from the author their son, John. 19/2/1926." There is a further pencilled inscription by his brother probably written in later years which reads "AWF Fuller from Mother." This is a truely unique piece and part of a collection obtained from the Fuller family. This is a truely exceptional copy and an important piece of military history. Boney Fuller was at the forefront of armoured and tank warfare, when many around him were doubters of its capabilities. Some say that if the First WW had gone on another year the Boney would have been more famous than Montgomery later was due to the massive tank battle which was planned for 1919. J.F.C was also a colourful character because of his early dabblings in esoteric matters and the occult, particularly in his association with Aleister Crowley. Later he is said to have been a Nazi sympathizer and Oswald Moseley supporter in the 1930s. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Marcus Adams (1875-1959) was a British society photographer noted for his portraits of children. Adams' father was the Reading based photographer Walton Adams. He began his career as an architectural photographer for the British Archaeological Society and took photographs for books by the antiquarian C.E. Keyser. With fellow photographers Bertram Park and Parks' wife Yvonne Gregory, Adams formed the "Three Photographers" group in 1920. Based at 43 Dover Street, Mayfair, they each worked independently, but shared use of printing, retouching and darkroom staff. Gaining notability for his portraits of children Adams took the first official photographs of the Duchess of York and her daughter Princess Elizabeth (the future Queen Mother and Queen Elizabeth II). His 1934 photograph of Princess Elizabeth at the age of 8 was used as the portrait for the $20 banknote of the 1935 Series of banknotes of the Canadian dollar. He continued his work as a photographer of royal children until a sitting with Princess Anne in 1956. Other notable children photographed by Adams included Christopher Robin Milne.

Report on the Naga Hills (Upper Chindwin) Expedition for the Abolition of Human Sacrifice January to March 1928... 2 folding maps. 42pp. 2 vols. Folio. Slavery and human sacrifice. A remarkable archive documenting Rich's service in Burma from his first posting in 1896 through to his work in the 1920s when he was engaged in the suppression of slavery and human sacrifice. After sixty years and three Anglo-Burmese wars, Burma became a British colony in 1886. Having completed the Suez canal, Britain turned to Burma for its rice supply and much of the Irrawaddy delta was dredged for the purpose. The British began an extensive survey work and initially Rich was an engineer attached to it. The archive commences with two letters written from Upper Burma to his mother while engaged on survey work in 1896 and 1897. Rich communicates much of what life was like for surveyors - preferring a grass hut to his tent, noting his meals and providing a general account of his travels. There are notes on the geography and topographical sketches. The material from this early period also includes his diary documenting the period 8-17, May 1899 when he was engaged in survey work for the Salween Railway in the Shan state. An early entry gives some of the flavor: "May 9th... arrived at camp no 2 at a Kachin village called Kangmong at 9 o'clock after an eventful march. At this village the present headman two years ago burnt a man by placing him in a hole in the ground with a fire on his head." Furthermore, he gives plenty of insight into day-to-day marching in the region: "during the rainy season we never put up our tents ... as a shower will nearly or quite double the weight of a tent". Rich notes arguments between his Chinese mule drivers and Hindustani guards and coolies. Nor does he spare himself in relating the ongoing difficulty of dealing with mules. Rich was keen to engage with those around him, especially the village headmen. "This [one] is more intelligent than the average Shan and in the afternoon I had a long talk with him ... through my Shan interpreter... Five years ago his village was attacked by Kachins & burnt... his people had to flee as they stood, leaving cattle & everything behind & they could not return till the British came up..." He also provides extensive notes on the geography as well as customs of the local tribes. He includes a lengthy description of a village at Maingyaw and its school. At Pangwo, he notes "it is the custom of these hill tribes to move their villages about once in 3 years. I once asked a villager how they agreed on when to move & he said that they usually waited till there were 3 deaths in one house..." Rich then describes the dwellings and wonders how after three years "not that 3 have died but that anyone is alive to tell the tale." Furthermore, there are two typed reports (totaling 24pp) to H. A. Thornton, Commissioner of the North-East Frontier Division. With a covering letter dated 17 March, 1923, the first report is titled "Report on the Hukawng and adjoining Unadministered Territory." It provides a detailed overview of the region with a view to governing the Unadministered areas. There is also the following aside "the Nagas continue gaily to practice their human sacrifices, whilst slavery still flourishes amongst the Nagas, as well as amongst the Kachins and Shans of the Hukawng and bloodfeuds are common amongst Kachins as well as Nagas." The second "Brief account of survey operations of No. 10 Party, Survey of India, in the North East frontier Division, Burma from 1909 to 1923." The two reports were made at the end of his service as the head of No. 10 Survey Party and essentially summarize fourteen years of his achievements. The bulk of the archive concerns the expeditions into the Hukawng Valley to release slaves being held captive and also to eradicate the practice of human sacrifice. The Hukawng Valley is an area of roughly 6000 square miles and at the time had a population of about fifteen thousand. The swampy nature of the terrain, and rapids on the Chindwin River, made the valley extremely difficult to access and in the 1920s the area was basically un-administered. It was only through the work of survey parties that slavery was discovered, and although there had long been reports of human sacrifice among the Nagas, this was only verified by the likes of Rich in 1922. The heart of the collection are the two bound volumes titled Slavery & Human Sacrifice on the North East Frontier of Burma. The first volume contains 102 bound leaves of manuscript, typescript and printed papers (many confidential) concerning Rich's work in Burma. They begin with notes regarding him passing exams in colloquial Yunnanese, the Chingpaw dialect of Kachin and Maru. The remaining papers concern the Kachin rising though principally involve operations in the Hukawng Valley and Naga Hills. They include Rich's report, his correspondence with superiors (letters and telegrams), receipts and accounts, despatches along with seven leaves of plates and ten folding maps, many of which are annotated. The second volume contains six confidential reports, none of which are located on OCLC, COPAC or KVK. The first report indicates the scale of the situation and how it was dealt with: "The number of slaves dealt with was 3445 ... The slaves were released on payment of compensation and solatium amounting to Rs.196,163." There were further monies paid as "agricultural advances." Regarding human sacrifice, a similar method of dissuasion was used. "Promises have been clinched my mutual presents and though there may be occasional breaches... periodic visits from Civil Officers [will ensure] the end of the custom of human sacrifice is in sight." In addition to the narrative of the expeditions, there is also a full breakdown of how these expeditions were equipped, methods of communication, tables showing at what rates slave owners would be compensated, and medical information relating to disease and vaccinations. The sketch maps show the tracks of each expedition. These confidential reports complement the additional material and this archive provides a substantial record of a dramatic, if little known, episode in British colonial rule. Rich's contributions are acknowledged in a 1929 letter from Hugh Aylmer Thornton, C.I.E.: "you must feel that you more than anyone else is clearly due the credit for ending the slavery and human sacrifice in the unadministered areas." All of this is complemented by 75 original photographs that provide a rare glimpse into a seldom visited part of Burma. Rich attended Sandhurst and served as 2nd Lieutenant in the Royal Engineers. His long association with Burma commenced almost immediately when he was posted to India in 1895 and then to Burma in 1896 where he helped survey the railway. He returned to Burma in 1911 for more surveying work, this time at the frontier post at Myitkyina from where he was responsible for the surveying of the border with Tibet and Yunnan. After the Second World War Rich returned to Burma where he was in charge of the Burma Circle of the Survey of India. He retired with the rank of Colonel and was made C.I.E. in 1928. A.

On the trout fishing section of his assignment, he fisted the Western Bays with fine success, but it was the Tongariro River flowing into the southern end of the lake that caused him to write in raptures. . . . Grey's book drew the attention of anglers from all over to the magnificent Tonagriro River and it came to be regarded as arguable the finest rainbow trout river in the world."

      Portsmouth: H.M. Navigation School,, 1926. Square octavo. Presentation blue cloth, gilt lettered spine with anchor motifs. From the library of Admiral of the Fleet John Rushworth Jellicoe, first Earl Jellicoe (1859-1935), commander of the Grand Fleet at Jutland (31 May - 1 June 1916). Spine sunned, covers patchily faded; internally clean and crisp. Carbon copy typescript of an interesting history, later printed in The Naval Review (1926, volume 4, issue 14, pp. 792-820); the original is at the Royal United Services Institution (finding reference: RUSI/NM/159). The only copy held in other public institutions is that at the Australian Defence Force Academy Library but this appears to be a 31 page offprint from the Naval Review. Presentation copy from the author, inscribed on the front free endpaper: "Lord Jellicoe, with the compliments of the Author. September, 1926". Rear Admiral Robert Kirk Dickson DSO (1898-1952) captained the minelayer "Manxman" (October 1940-December 1942) as part of Force "X" during the Mediterranean convoys of World War II: "On his return from Operation Style, Admiral Somerville began planning for an air attack on targets in Northern Sardinia to take place at the same time so as to create a diversion for a minelaying operation in the Gulf of Genoa. He proposed that the new fast minelayer, "Manxman", Captain R. K. Dickson, should be employed to lay mines off Leghorn" (The Royal Navy and the Mediterranean Volume II: November 1940-December 1941, p. 163). On 1 December 1942 "Manxman" was hit twice by U-375 and despite being severely damaged reached Oran under tow. Dickson later served as Chief of Naval Information at the Admiralty.

        Seeteufel. Abenteuer aus meinem Leben

      Berlin & Leipzig: K.F. Koehler. 1926. "Later printing (the book was first published in 1921); 8vo, pp. [6], 318, [2] ads; folding map showing the course of the German raider Seeadler to the the point of its demise in the Pacific in 1917; double-p. sailplan, and approx. 135 illustrations throughout, largely from photographs taken during the cruise; original pictorial cloth, spine a bit soiled, else generally very good. This copy enhanced by a 13-line inscription in German by the ship's navigator (and famed whaler and Arctic explorer) Carl Kircheiss, to Carl G. Orgell, dated Philadelphia, 17 October, 1927, mentioning the Seeadler, and also with a 7-line inscribed photograph of the navigator laid in. From January to July 1917, the Seeadler sank fourteen allied ships, eleven in the Atlantic and three in the Pacific. In August, however, the Seeadler was lost altogether: she was wrecked on an atoll in French Polynesia. Mystery still surrounds her loss. Von Luckner attested to the German Admiralty that an underwater earthquake caused a tsunami that dashed the ship on the reef, a story that is reaffirmed here in this book, and by several subsequent historians of the Germany Navy. And so has that story been perpetuated through the ensuing decades. Two contemporary investigations, as well as several recent ones, dispute this version of events, and instead blame Von Luckner for being oblivious to the change in the wind direction which blew the Seeadler onto the reef. Ignored by the supporters of Von Luckner was a 1929 book by the navigator of the Seeadler Carl Kircheiss in which he offers a vastly different version of how the shipwreck occurred, and one, ultimately, much closer to the truth.

      Vienna, 24 March 1926 - 1 page. 8vo. On „Prof. Dr. Freud" stationery. To an unnamed recipient, "Esteemed Sir," in German, explaining that his work at the "magic mountain" leaves only the evenings to socialize and arranging a meeting after dinner. „I am very sorry that your recent visit to me was unsuccessful. My day in this magic mountain or cave is divided in such a way that I have only the evening for enjoyments. May I suggest that you honor me with a visit today, at 8 or 8:15 after dinner, to exchange ideas and have a cigar? Or give the bearer some other time?" - Thomas Mann's novel, Magic Mountain, in which several themes are developed including the health of the mind and body, was published in 1924, two years prior to the writing of this letter.
