        Noa Noa. Voyage de Tahiti

      [Munich]: [R. Piper & Co], [1926]. First Edition. Hardcover Hardcover. Near Fine/Fine. 12.5 x 9.5 in. 204 pages. With collotypye reproductions of Gauguin's watercolors, drawings, photographs, and woodcuts. In 1895, on his second trip to Tahiti, Gauguin took the manuscript for Noa Noa, written following his first trip, two years before. While on the island, he made woodblock prints, sketches, drawings, and small paintings, and pasted them into the text. This is a facsimile of that journal, carefully reproducing the Noa Noa manuscript, now in the Louvre, to match Gauguin's original. Widely considered a landmark artist's book, it was included in the Artist and the Book, 1860-1960 exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and the Victoria and Albert show, From Manet to Hockney: Modern Artists' Illustrated Books, and in Jaroslav Andel's The Avant-Garde Book, 1900-1945. Riva Castleman, in A Century of Artists Books, called this 'a remarkable event in book publishing.' Limited to 400 copies, this is one of 320 bound in raffia, a coarse material made from palm trees. First edition. A near fine copy, with some cracking to the fragile binding at the spine, in a fine dust jacket that has been professionally lined with Japanese paper. The limitation bookplate (located on the inside front cover) has been covered by a previous owner's bookplate. In a very good example of the original slipcase, and rare thus. A spectacular looking copy of a great book.

        Photograph Album - 1920s China with images of Hong Kong and Yokohama

      [1926].. A very interesting album with 63 snapshots measuring 8 x 10cm carefully arranged 4 to a page, 17 unused pages at the rear. Most photographs have been captioned in ink. Three snapshots have been removed. It appears the first leaf or leaves of the album has been removed as the first photograph in the album is numbered 5. Some photographs are quite faded, on others some silvering is showing but in most cases the images are still quite dark and strong. Album measures 25 x 30cm. Upper card cover of album missing. This interesting mostly showing images of mainland China album offers a great deal of human and political interest. It appears that the photographs were taken by an engaged visitor concerned about workers conditions and the political situation in the country at the time. The album begins with five photographs relating to the KMT including one taken at their Military School for Non-Commissioned Officers captioned: "The soldiers carry on their arms a band inscribed - We do not rob or loot the people"". Other photographs include images of Peking, Hankow, Yangtze river, two photos of the infamous "No Dogs or Chinese" notice in Shanghai, Canton images include two taken at the Whampoa Military Academy showing a parade for Colonel Malone one of which is captioned "Chiang Kai Shek on the platform" and 10 photos taken at Hong Kong. The final three photographs the view from a ship in Yokohama as she leaves the wharf and the streamers break. The particular attraction of this album is that unlike most albums compiled by Western visitors of the day this shows the situation in China at the time rather than sites of interest to the visitor. The many interesting captions add a great deal to the interest of the album. The album starts with an image of a KMT military school based in Kalgan 张家口 [Zhangjiakou], a prefecture-level city in northwestern Hebei province. The images include the living conditions of workers for example the photograph of an engine driver on the Hu-Ning (Shanghai-Nanking) railway captioned with comments about his wages ($2.50) and comparing them to that of a fireman ($1) and a cleaner (30 cents). Another important image is the photograph that provided the date for the album. It shows a Peking street scene captioned "Chang Tso-lins broken words. Chang promised his troops would not enter Peking - within 24 hours they were streaming in - here is the transport. All shops are shut for fear of looting". The powerful Manchurian warlord Chang Tso-lin (Wade Giles), Zhang Zuolin (Pinyin), 张作霖, took control of Peking in April 1926. From the collection of Arthur Hacker, Hong Kong artist, historian and collector. .

        Der Morbus Gaucher und die ihm ählichen Erkrankungen. Offprint. Pres. copy

      Berlin: Springer, 1926. Pick, Ludwig (1868-1935). Der Morbus Gaucher und die ihm ähnlichen Erkrankungen. Offprint from Ergebnisse der inneren Medizin und Kinderheilkunde 29 (1926). 519-627pp. Text illustrations. 247 x 166 mm. Original buff printed wrappers, spine chipped, light soiling.

"Niemann-Pick disease," a group of inherited, severe metabolic disorders, was first noted by Albert Niemann in 1914, but Pick's 1926 account is fuller and of greater importance. The disease, which primarily affects Jewish infants, has some similarities to Tay-Sachs disease; the provenance of this copy is therefore of some interest. Garrison-Morton.com 3785.

        Ulysses

      Shakespeare and Company 1926 - Eighth printing; hardcover, 8 1/4 x 6 1/2 inches, 735 pages, small printed map of James Joyce's grave location laid in; three-quarter bound in blue marbled paper boards backed and tipped in brown Morocco, banded spine with title blocked in gilt, boards rubbed and scuffed at extremities, bits of leather scuffed away at corners, spine sun faded, decorative end papers, pages toned with age, binding sound. Small, folded mimeographed flyer laid in with the title: Wegweiser zum Grab des Schriftstellers James Joyce im Friedhof Zurich-Fluntern (Signpost to the tomb of the writer James Joyce in the cemetery Zurich-Fluntern). Inside is a brief biography of Joyce, and his wife, Nora-Joyce Barnacle, along with a map showing directions to their graves. The flyer is dated 21.12.62. The paper is toned and creased with some brown spots. Capturing a single day in the life of Dubliner Leopold Bloom, his friends Buck Mulligan and Stephen Dedalus, his wife Molly, and a cast of supporting characters, the author pushes Celtic lyricism and vulgarity to splendid extremes. A modernist novel of supreme stylistic innovation, James Joyce's Ulysses is the towering achievement of twentieth century literature. For Joyce, literature 'is the eternal affirmation of the spirit of man'. Written between 1914 and 1921, Ulysses has survived bowdlerization, legal action and bitter controversy. -- Shakespeare and Company [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Making of Americans & What Are Masterpieces

      New York: Albert and Charles Boni, 1926 First American edition, one of 100 copies of the first edition issued for the United States. Signed and inscribed by Stein on the half title to Helen Simpson, a socialite friend of Stein and Alice Toklas. Publisher's decorated cloth lettered in gilt, with brown spine and black and red pattern to boards, fore and bottom edges untrimmed, lacking dust jacket. About near fine with only a touch of wear to extremities, front hinge starting, and a closed tear to front free endpaper near gutter, otherwise very attractive with a tight, clean interior. From the library of Pulitzer Prize winning author Kenneth Silverman. Written over a period of eight years in the early 20th century, Stein's The Making of Americans traces the genealogy and family history of the fictional Hersland and Dehning families. Although Stein herself compared the work to Joyce's Ulysses, critics and readers were less enthusiastic and criticized the work for its repetitive, tedious nature. Written in an experimental style, the work lacks a cohesive plot or sequence of actions, which contributed to publishers' hesitancy to accept the novel until almost fifteen years after it was written. Chiefly a biographer, Professor Kenneth Silverman co-directed the American Civilization program at NYU, and won not only the Pulitzer but also the Bancroft Prize for his work The Life and Times of Cotton Mather. Other notable works of his include biographies of Edgar Allan Poe and Samuel F. B. Morse. A magician himself, he also profiled the life of Harry Houdini. Los Angeles: The Conference Press, 1940. First edition, limited to 50 numbered copies signed by Stein. Publisher's blue cloth, ruled and lettered in metallic red; in the original light blue pictorial dust jacket. A near fine copy with a touch of sunning to extremities and a very small hole in cloth to bottom of rear board, small bookseller's sticker to bottom of rear pastedown; dust jacket lightly soiled and with a touch of wear to extremities, including one two-inch closed tear to top edge of rear panel. From the library of Pulitzer Prize winning author Kenneth Silverman. What Are Masterpieces is a collection of three of Stein's lectures, put into print for the first time in this volume. The lectures include "Composition as Explanation," "An American and France," and "What Are Masterpieces and Why Are There So Few of Them?" The collection attempts to synthesize the major pieces of Stein's influence on painting and writing, giving readers a cohesive picture of the impact of her work.. Inscribed by Author. First American Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        Album of photographs depicting a trek from Rawalpindi to Razmak by the 1st Battalion, King's Royal Rifle Corps.

      [North-West Frontier Province:] B. D. Arora & Sons,, [1926]. Landscape quarto photograph album (197 x 250 mm). Original brown paper boards, front board with simple blind frame and decorative gilt wreath, ticket of Bartons' [sic] British Albums to the rear pastedown. 24 silver gelatin prints mounted rectos and versos to cloth-hinged stiff brown card leaves, all 158 x 210 mm and signed ("Arora"), numbered (1-24) and captioned, all in the image. Provenance: laid-in photograph of an altar, inscribed on the verso "To Rfn [=Rifleman] Dix, A small token of gratitude for all his labour in the garden, from his sincere friend, E. H. [?] Razmak, 5/11/1927". Most plates faded to sepia but retaining their rich tonal contrasts, plate 1 slightly oxidized along bottom edge, plate 6 faded overall, occasional stronger fading largely restricted to the margins only. An album of attractive professional photographs from the 22-day, 262-mile march from Rawalpindi to Razmak undertaken by the 1st Battalion of the King's Royal Rifle Corps in the winter of 1926, the images commencing with the crossing of the Khushal Gharh Bridge and subsequently depicting the battalion marching in formation past Gumbat, Lachi, and the Bahadarkhel Hills, across the Koram River, arriving at Bannu, crossing the Shinki and Tochi bridges and marching round the Razani Curve, before arriving in Razmak in heavy snow. "After the tribal uprising of 1919-1920, it was decided during the spring of 1922 to locate the main garrison of Waziristan at Razmak. The self-contained cantonment, capable of holding 10,000 men, was established in January 1923. New roads linking the garrisons and camps in the area were constructed to permit speedier troop movements" (National Army Museum, online). "The 1st Battalion, The King's Royal Rifle Corps, moved from Ireland to India in 1922 and, after three years stationed at Rawalpindi, was ordered to the Razmak district of North Waziristan on the North-West Frontier bordering Afghanistan. At 8.20 a.m. on 16 November 1926, on a brilliantly fine morning, 14 officers and 618 other ranks, under the command of Lieutenant-Colonel F.G. Willan CMG DSO, marched out of their barracks in Rawalpindi en route to Razmak. Two officers and 80 other ranks accompanied the heavy baggage which was despatched by train. It took the Battalion 22 days to complete the 262-mile march, arriving at Razmak in a snowstorm on 8 December. The average distance marched each day was 14 miles with three rest days. The greatest distance marched in a single day was 20 miles on 1 December. On this day the Battalion waded ankle-deep across the Kuram River … Setting an example to his men, the Commanding Officer marched the whole distance on foot stating that he was afraid that he might get stiff if he rode on his horse … The Battalion spent a year at Razmak seeking to prevent the notoriously blood-thirsty Mahsuds and Wazirs from fighting. In November 1927 the Battalion left Razmak and went to Lucknow. Commenting on their tour of duty at Razmak, the Battalion's brigade commander wrote: 'The training and tactical efficiency of the Battalion is of a very high standard, due to the excellent supervision and instruction of an able commanding officer, backed by a keen and capable team of officers. The N.C.O.'s are well trained and know their jobs, with the result that the training of smaller formations is good. The men are fit and keen and move extremely well on the hillside. The efficiency of the Battalion in mountain warfare is excellent'" (Royal Green Jackets Museum, online). These images, with the catalogue numbers 1 to 24, appear to be the first produced by this obscure studio, and are untraced in the India Office Records, which contain a selection of photographs signed Arora depicting military operations in the Wana Valley dated 1926-7 and a similar series dated 1933-6. There is possibly some relation to the R. C. Arora whose In the Land of Kashmir, Ladakh & Gilgit, a guidebook with a foreword by C. E. Tyndale-Briscoe, was published in Agra in 1940.
