        DIE ECLOGEN VERGILS IN DER URSPRACHE UND DEUTSCH

      Weimar: Cranach Press, 1926. No. 42 OF 250 COPIES on handmade, pure hemp rag (of a total edition of 294, with eight on vellum and 36 on Kessler-Maillol silk rag) n. Hardcover. 335 x 247 mm (13 1/8 x 9 3/4"). 2 p.l., 110 pp., [3] leaves. No. 42 OF 250 COPIES on handmade, pure hemp rag (of a total edition of 294, with eight on vellum and 36 on Kessler-Maillol silk rag). Recent black crushed morocco, earlier large onlaid crimson crushed morocco label on front cover, raised bands, gilt titling on spine, top edge gilt. Housed in a later green cloth slipcase. Woodcut title vignette, 42 woodcut illustrations, two initials, and press-mark by Aristide Maillol, woodcut lettering and initials by Eric Gill. A Large Paper Copy. Schroeder, p. 9; "Artist & the Book" 172; "A Century for the Century" 15; Easton "The Red Count: The Life and Times of Harry Kessler," p. 371. Three pages with a tiny spot of foxing, but IN EXTREMELY FINE CONDITION, the binding unworn, the cuts in very fresh impressions, and the beautiful paper especially fresh, bright, and clean. This is one of the uniformly fine Cranach books, undertaken in what Franklin calls "a perfectionist spirit," and bringing together the most glittering names in English and German private printing at the time. In his bibliography of the press, Schroeder says of the Virgil, "If the press had ceased operation after printing this one book, Count Kessler could have retired secure in the knowledge that he could look back on a unique work." Franklin says that the book is a landmark in the private press movement, produced by the "brilliant quartet" of Maillol, Gill, Walker, and Johnston. Maillol designed and cut on wood the 43 illustrations for this work during the years 1912-14 and again (after the war) in 1925 at Banyuls in the Pyrenees, drawing on his immediate neighborhood and on his personal acquaintances for the themes of certain of his designs. In the words of Kessler's biographer, MullerKrumbach, they are ethereal as well as pastoral, and their "nymphs and naiads move contentedly in the sheer pleasure of existence." Hutner declares that "with the clarity and classic simplicity of the woodcuts juxtaposed and perfectly balanced with the weight and beauty of the type, the Eclogues is a monument of 20th century printing." Eric Gill cut all but a few of the initials (the others were done by Maillol); Cranach Press publisher Count Harry Kessler designed the layout; and Edward Prince (under the supervision of Emery Walker) cut the punches for the type after that used by Venetian printer Nicolas Jenson in 1473. The margins here (as apparently in all copies) occupy more than three times as much area as the text. The front cover's gilt-lettered red morocco title label recreates Eric Gill's engraved design for the leaf opposite the half title; the label almost certainly was appropriated from a copy in an earlier special binding done for the press, likely by Gerhard Prade of Leipzig, who produced notable bindings for the Cranach Press.

        The Original Charleston

      Paris: Editions Francis Salabert,, 1926. Musique de Cecil Mack et Jimmy Johnson dansé par Joséphine Baker dans l'Hyper-Revue des Folies Bergère "La Folie du Jour" … Quarto Original bifolium sheet music with pictorial covers, loosely inserted singlesheet, letterpress recto only. A little rubbed externally, slightly browned internally, particularly through contact with the loose sheet, but overall a very good example. First edition thus. Uncommon, just 3 copies on OCLC, Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin, Biblioteca Comunale di Trento, Zentralbibliothek Zurich. In 1926 Baker left the Revue Negre to join the Folies Bergère and her success became a sensation. The Charleston formed the finale of a frenetic show, the critic André Rouverge writing in the Mercure de France that "the Charleston, as danced à la Baker, fairly boils over with diabolic intensity". This score features a blissful dancing La Baker by R. de Valerio on the cover, and loosely inserted is a singlesheet "Théorie du Charleston" by Pradère-Niquet, Professeur de l'Académie Baraduc, giving detailed instructions for the dance.

        I fogli mancanti al codice di Leonardo da Vinci su'l volo degli uccelli nella Biblioteca Reale di Torino

      Rome: Danesi Editore,, 1926. a cura di Enrico Carusi. Folio. Contemporary presentation binding of full vellum, covers with frames blocked in gilt, front cover gilt lettered with the title and "La Libreria dello Stato" (Mussolini's State Library) and the central gilt device of the fasces, top edge gilt. Title printed in red and black, 9 full-colour reproductions of Leonardo's notebook with facing transcription, other drawings of Leonardo's reproduced in the text. Covers lightly rubbed and soiled, internally fine; an excellent copy, with the bookplate of Clarence and Helen Ward and an autograph note by Ted Peck describing the book's recovery tipped-in on an early blank. First edition, presentation copy from Mussolini to Adolf Hitler, number 152 of 300 copies only, this copy with a hand-lettered presentation leaf inserted before the text, "A Adolfo Hitler, Gennaio 1942?-XX" (i.e. dedicating this copy to Adolf Hitler, January 1942, in the twentieth year of the Fascist regime in Italy). The confusion of war delayed the intended gift—Mussolini's authority was on the wane, while January 1942 was the month of the notorious Wannsee Conference—and Mussolini did not meet Hitler in person until May that year, in Salzburg. This copy was recovered on 7 May 1945 from Hitler's Bavarian mountain retreat at Berchtesgaden by Ted Peck, one of the celebrated Monument Men. Peck records that he found the book on the floor of the hallway adjoining Martin Bormann's library and office in the Obersalzberg complex. Bormann was Hitler's personal secretary; he had committed suicide in Berlin on 2 May 1945. Edward (Ted) Staunton Peck (1908?-1970) was then serving as a sergeant technician in intelligence with the 101st Airborne Division. As a Monument Man, it was he who inventoried Hermann Goering's illicit collection of 3,100 art objects, which had been discovered in Unterstein, near Berchtesgaden. After the war, Dr Peck served for many years as the director of the Fisher Museum of Art at the University of Southern California. Peck gave this copy to his close personal friend Clarence Ward (1884?-1973), his former professor at Oberlin College, Ohio. Leonardo's codex on the flight of birds is one of his most famous manuscripts, inspirational to many of the 20th century pioneers of human flight. Composed c.1505/6, the manuscript was later broken up. After it had been reassembled, the complete codex was acquired by the Biblioteca Reale in Turin, Italy, where it currently resides. This edition, printing in facsimile the missing leaves, was published in 1926 to celebrate its acquisition.

        Typed letter signed together with an inscribed photograph of the author

      Santi-Niketan, Bengal: 2 February, , 1926 . Single sheet, octavo (223 × 141 mm), with Tagore's "Santi-Niketan" letterhead; silver gelatin print of the author tipped in along central fold, signed by him and additionally inscribed "Santiniketan", with date " 6 - 4 - 26" in pencil to verso in another hand. Letter creased where previously folded and with two sections of old tape-repair to verso, photograph trimmed along top edge to minimal if any loss of image. Overall very good. Tagore writes to an unnamed recipient: "Dear Madam: I have been touched by the story of your suffering as related in your letter of Jan 12; I permit myself to offer you my sympathy. The demands made on my health and on my time are too many to enable me to write to you as often as I could wish. Yours sincerely, Rabindranath Tagore". Santi-Niketan (more commonly Santiniketan or Shantiniketan) was the ashram founded by Tagore in 1901, ostensibly as a place of meditation for Hindus of all castes, though the gesture has also been situated within the "upsurge of swadeshi (nationalist) activity in Bengal (and other parts of India) around the turn of the century. Tagore's aim was to establish a modern version of the tapoban (forest hermitage) of ancient India, apart from Calcutta and its flesh-pots and away from the lure of the West" (Dutta and Robinson, eds. Selected Letters of Rabindranath Tagore, p. 61). The Partition of Bengal was announced in 1905, with Calcutta to be separated from East Bengal - much to the fury of the city's Bengali Hindu bhaladrok, who came together to form the Swadeshi Movement, the forerunner to Gandhi's Noncooperation Movement. Tagore was at first an enthusiastic supporter of the movement but it quickly turned violent and a disillusioned Tagore withdrew to focus on his ashram. Notwithstanding the ill-health cited in his letter, 1926 was a busy year for Tagore, who was approaching the height of his fame. He travelled across Europe and stayed at the guest of Albert Einstein at his summer residence in Caputh, south of Potsdam, anticipating the famous series of encounters in New York fours year later, which Isaiah Berlin called "a complete non-meeting of minds"; more controversially he also travelled to Italy for a second audience with Mussolini, though he would later seek to distance himself from the Italian dictator. Health problems were indeed a problem and he was hospitalised in Bupadest, though he would recover sufficiently to live for a further fourteen years.

Trained as both a physicist and a dentist, Ledley joined the National Bureau of Standards in 1952, where he was introduced to electronic computing through his wife, one of the programmers on the Standards Eastern Automatic Computer (SEAC). Recognizing the enormous potential importance of computers to biomedical research, Ledley devoted the rest of his career to advancing the use of digital computing in biology and medicine. In 1960 he founded the National Biomedical Research Foundation (NBRF), which he headed until his retirement in 2010. His major accomplishments at the NRBF include the invention of the ACTA whole-body CT scanner (1973) and the establishment of the Protein Information Resource in the 1980s. Ledley’s "Reasoning foundations of medical diagnosis," written in collaboration with radiologist Lee Lusted, represents the beginning of the development of clinical decision support systems (CDSS)—interactive computer programs, or expert systems, designed to assist physicians and health care professionals with decision-making tasks. "Areas covered included: symbolic logic, Bayes’ theorem (probability) and value theory. In the article, physicians were instructed how to create diagnostic databases using edge-notched cardsto prepare for a time when they would have the opportunity to enter their data into electronic computers for analysis. Ledley and Lusted expressed hope that by harnessing computers, much of physicians’ work would become automated and that many human errors could therefore be avoided. Within medicine, Ledley and Lusted’s article has remained influential for decades, especially within the field of medical decision-making" (Wikipedia). While at the National Bureau of Standards, Ledley devoted most of his time to solving military and intelligence problems using the techniques of operations research. Nos. (2) and (3) above (no. [3] is a revised version of no. [2]) discuss the use of Boolean algebra to simplify complex military decision-making processes. After leaving the NBS in 1954 Ledley joined the Operations Research Office at Johns Hopkins; one of his colleagues there was physicist George Gamow, who had become interested in molecular biology after Watson and Crick’s discovery in 1953 of the double helix structure of DNA. Gamow sponsored Ledley for membership in the elite RNA Tie Club and enlisted Ledley’s computing expertise in an attempt to crack the genetic code. Ledley’s results were published in no. (4) above: "Ledley’s main work for the RNA Tie Club was an effort to generate a set of contingency tables for the purpose of writ [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        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. Near fine, with some minor rubbing to the spine ends, a hint of faint toning and a minor bump to the spine, some light spotting to the fore edge and endpapers, otherwise bright and clean interior. Overall, a tight and attractive 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 could 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. Near Fine.

In den Rändern ungleich beschnitten, in der Ecke rechts unten kleiner Einriß, Ecke links unten Knickfalte. Über Marianne Geyer ist kaum etwas bekannt. 1924 heiratete sie den Stuttgarter Maler, Architekten, Bildhauer, Graphiker und Designer B. Pankok (1872-1943), der seit 1913 Direktor der Kunstgewerbeschule war. Es mag sein, daß sie diese Kunstgewerbeschule besuchte und dort ihren zukünftigen Ehemann kennenlernte. Es ist auch zu vermuten, daß sie wenige Jahre nach ihrer Verheiratung ihre künstlerische Tätigkeit beendete.

        London and Its Criminals

      London: Williams & Norgate, Ltd.,, 1926. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine and upper board gilt. With the dust jacket. Contemporary pencilled gift inscription to front pastedown. Lightly rubbed at extremities, spine slightly rolled, spotting to edges of text block, endpapers and title pages, and occasionally to contents. A very good copy in the rubbed and nicked jacket with a closed tear to the upper panel and two chips from the spine panel. First edition, first impression. An early work by the con man turned author, publisher, and plagiarist. Netley Lucas was born in 1903 and orphaned shortly thereafter. At the age of 14 he was expelled from school for forgery and became a full-time criminal, repeatedly conning luxury hotels and young women looking for employment. In 1924, after numerous stints in prison, he began his writing career with articles in Detective Magazine (likely ghosted), and soon graduated to full-length books ?- his own autobiography in 1924 and other volumes on London's criminal underworld. Later, after time spent as a minor celebrity in America, he began publishing "authentic" biographies under pseudonyms, plagiarising legitimate authors and forging documentation to make his books appear authorised. He even set up his own publishing company in Golden Square, and though the firm released a number of titles it went bankrupt within a year. After his arrest for plagiarism, Lucas made further attempts at literary work, but was by then so notorious that he had difficulty approaching publishers. He died in Surrey in 1940, at only 37 years of age. Copies of London and Its Criminals in the attractively designed dust jacket are particularly uncommon.

        Falbalas & Fanfreluches. Alamanch pour 1922-26

      Paris: Jules Meynial, 1926. All five sections remain fine and fresh, lovingly preserved in a felt-lined black cloth folding case.. Five annual issues, each in original folding pochoir decorated wrappers (each issue comprising twelve letterpress pages with a separate decorated title-page and twelve pochoir plates measuring 246 x 155 mm.). One of the most elusive and desirable Art-Deco rarities, published by a celebrated Parisian designer.After working upon the design and illustration of other celebrated works, Falbalas and Franfreluches (Frippery and Finery, fashion diaries: past present and future) was George Barbier's own publication project wherein he retained creative control over the entire design and print production process. The result is a magnificent testament to pochoir printing, and Art-Deco design, at its very finest. Barbier spared no effort in printing this eternally endearing dilettante foible, using the finest pigments and up to thirty stencils per print to create deep, sensuous and lustrous images befitting the piquant romantic themes of the series. The plates reflect romance amidst exotic lands and ages past, including a native American idyll on the Missouri, a languid mistress cocooned in a hammock in the tropical Antilles, high baroque debauchery and of course a myriad of depictions of lovers in fashionable Paris of high nineteen-twenties.Each annual includes twelve pages of delicious romantic prose by Barbier's associates in the fashionable Parisian scene, including the novelist Colette and the comic actress Cecile Sorel. Falbalas and Franfreluches represents a literary and artistic printmaking collaboration of unusual finesse, elegance and sophistication. This is a complete set of five annual issues with a total of 60 stunning pochoir plates (in addition to the decorated title-pages specially prepared for each year).
