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

      [Munich]: Bremer Presse [1926-1928], 1926. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Simons, Anna. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. 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). All text in German. ***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 ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        Travel Talks on China.

      Washington, D. C., Review and Herald Publishing Association, [1926]. 8vo. Original red cloth, lettered and decorated in black, with the rarely seen illustrated wrappers, pp. 254, many full-page illustrations after photographs; wrapper with a few tears and marginal flaws; otherwise a very good copy. Very rare first edition of a work, despite written with real Evangelist missionary zeal, gives a good account of China at the beginning of the 20th century. Lee, who lived and worked with his family in Bejing, interrupted by long travels with the Inland Mission, encounters bandits, witnesses the 1911 revolution, and generally was a keen observer. He is excusing his sense of adventure with his Christian mission, but the descriptions of China and Chinese society are vivid and fresh. The only other copy on the British Isles we were able to locate is in Oxford.

        RODCHENKO'S DESIGN FOR MAYAKOVSKY'S TRAVEL NOTES ABOUT AMERICA] Moe otkrytie Ameriki [i.e. My Discovery of America]

      GIZ, Moscow 1926 - 142, [2] pp.: ill. 18x10 cm. Original wrappers designed by Alexander Rodchenko. Very good. Minor loss of the spine from the edges. First edition. One of 3000 copies. Scarce! One of the rarer Mayakovsky/Rodchenko books. The book contains the notes from poet's trip to America and Mexico in 1925 that tend to show the countries from tougher side. The pictures from the trips are included in the edition as well. The wrapper designed by long-time Mayakovsky's collaborator Rodchenko can be called the classic of constructivist design. Mayakovsky disliked America long before he saw it. The lines summarizing the trip - «I would close America, lightly cleaned it, and then opened it again - for the second time» - he wrote on the way to America aboard the steamer. But in New York Mayakovsky came to life. The meeting with David Burliuk was very emotional. He liked the city very much, and he fell in love with lonely walks in Manhattan. Finally, he found a new love, Ellie Jones, who was from Volga Germans and gave birth to their daughter. Hellyer 325; The Russian Avant-Garde Book 656. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Autograph Musical Quotation from Orchestral Variations, Op. 31

      - Boldly penned AMQS from the Austrian-born composer whose development of the 'twelve-tone' system proved to be one of the most far-reaching innovations in the history of 20th century music. On a white card measuring 8 x 5.5 cm, the composer has penned five measures of music, one of the many B-A-C-H symbols used in the Orchestral Variations, Op. 31, and has signed "Arnold Schonberg Berlin 4.VIII.32." In fine condition, sold together with the original transmissal envelope and a halftone photograph, mounted to an album sheet and easily removed. The Variations for Orchestra, begun in May 1926 and finished in August 1928, is Schoenberg's first orchestral score written according to his new rules of serialism. The first performance was given on December 2, 1928, in Berlin, with Wilhelm Furtwängler conducting. It takes one of the great, essential forms of Western music and proves its compatibility with atonal music, and specifically, with serialism. Following a massive climax in the first section of the piece, the trombone intones four notes--B-flat, A, C, B-natural--that spell out the name Bach in German notation, invoking the master Schoenberg admired above all others. When The New York Times critic mistakenly wrote that Bach's name was the theme of the entire piece, Schoenberg was quick to set the record straight, pointing out that this passing, "sentimental" gesture was no different from Beethoven quoting Mozart's Don Giovanni in the Diabelli Variations.

        The Peregrine

      First edition, first impression of this masterpiece of 20th century nature writing, cited by Ted Hughes, Andrew Motion, Werner Herzog, and many others, as one of the most important books of its kind. Rare in such lovely condition in the dust jacket. J. A. Baker (1926-1987) was a librarian who spent ten years tracking peregrine falcons in coastal Essex during the 1950s and 60s. This, the first of his two published works, distils his observations of the birds and their changing habitat into a lyrical account of a single year, beginning in autumn with the birds' migration from Scandinavia and ending with their return north in spring. "The book records these months of chase in all their agitated repetitiveness. It describes them in language so intense and incantatory, and yet also so amok with beauty, that the act of bird-watching becomes akin to a shamanic ritual... Baker's most remarkable achievement in The Peregrine, to my mind, is the quality of deep strangeness with which he invests the East Anglian landscape. His Essex - 50 miles from London, aggressively farmed, densely peopled - is somehow made as mysterious, elemental, wild and remote as anywhere in the world. Like Ted Hughes, Baker is able to evoke a deep Englishness: to make a long-inhabited landscape seem timeless and mythic" (MacFarlane, "Extreme Styles of Hunting", The Guardian, May 21, 2005). London: Collins, 1967. Octavo. Original black boards, title to spine gilt, green endpapers. With the dust jacket. Spine just a little rolled. A lovely, fresh copy in the jacket that is a slightly faded along the spine panel. Excellent condition.

        ULYSSES ["9th Printing"]

      1926. Paris: Shakespeare and Company, 1927. Bound in full maroon morocco with gilt-paneled spine and leaf-patterned endpapers. "9th Printing," so identified on the leaf following the title leaf; since the 8th printing of 1926 constituted the first time the type was entirely re-set since the first edition in 1922, this "9th" is technically the second printing of the second edition. Like most of the previous printings (there would be only two more Shakespeare & Co. printings, ending with the 11th in 1930), the 9th was issued in blue paper wrappers. This copy however was bound, early on, in full maroon morocco, with gilt-paneled spine and leaf-patterned endpapers. Condition is just about fine (one small rub at the top of the front cover). See Slocum 17.

        The Links

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1926 - 163 pages. Green cloth with illustrations of two golf flags on the front cover. Rare jacket is present and frayed and with some chips and small pieces missing (see images). Original $4.00 price still on jacket. Original owner's name written neatly on FFEP as was the custom to do in 1927. Internally pages are in very good to excellent condition, no foxing or blemishes. Murdoch 378. Donovan & Murdoch 21930. True first edition with the white flag with a '1' and the red flag with an '18' on the cover. The book contains many photographs including many early ones from Pine Valley. One of the cornerstone books on golf course architecture. Hunter collaborated with Alister MacKenzie on the design and construction of Cypress Point. He also designed a course ranked within the top #100 worldwide, the Valley Club of Montecito in California. Hunter also authored a book on poverty in 1904, essentially a book that advocated socialism in the United States. Scribner's didn't publish many golf books, but the ones they did are noteworthy, including this one and Charles Blair MacDonald's Scotland's Gift, two years after they published this title. The dust jacket blurbs for The Links were written by Alister Mackenzie, who said: I do not hesitate to say that it is the classic on the subject and by Walter Travis who called it a fine piece of work, unique in its field. We specialize in golf books. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Winnie-the-Pooh

      London: Methuen & Co. Ltd.,, 1926. With Decorations by Ernest H. Shepard. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt, gilt vignette on front cover, top edges gilt, yellow map endpapers. Illustrated throughout by Ernest H. Shepard. Ownership signature to front free endpaper, closed tear to front endpaper which has been repaired neatly, mild rubbing and bumping to corners and ends of spine, light soiling to rear cover. A very good copy. First edition, first impression. After the huge success of When We Were Very Young, first published on 6 November 1924, Milne was asked to contribute a story to the London Evening News. "The Wrong Sort of Bees", published on Christmas Eve 1925, was based on a bedtime story that Milne had told his son Christopher. It starred Christopher's stuffed bear, who had made his first public appearance in the poem "Teddy Bear", published in Punch in 1924 and later in When We Were Very Young. The original toy was a top-of-the-range Alpha Farnell bought at Harrods for Christopher Milne's first birthday, known initially as Edward or Edward Bear, then later rechristened Winnie-the-Pooh (after a favourite bear cub at London zoo). Winnie-the-Pooh was an immediate success and garnered even more enthusiastic reviews than its predecessor, with one critic writing that "When the real Christopher Robin is a little old man, children will find him waiting for them. It is the child's book of the season that seems certain to stay" (Thwaite p. 317). The book was first published in London on 14 October 1926 in an edition of 30,000 regular trade copies.

      New York - Woodcut. Signed in pen. Image measures 7 1/4 x 5 3/4". Sheet measures 10 1/2 x 8 1/2". Matted with archival corners. This print by Rockwell Kent depicts a young woman washing her hair at the shore of a lake. Part of the woman's reflection appears in the lake at the bottom, and the background is lush with stylized foliage. The print, created circa 1926, appeared in Kent's 1933 "Rockwellkentiana" (p. 37). It is in excellent condition with a French matting and wide margins. It has been professionally matted with archival corners. Rockwell Kent (1882-1971) was an American realist painter from Tarrytown, New York. Kent spent his life in a variety of places, including Maine, Newfoundland, Alaska, Greenland, and South America. His paintings, lithographs, and woodcuts often portray aspects of a life lived in nature and are collected today by major museums throughout the country. Kent was also a prolific writer and illustrator who produced several books. This print is a lovely example of his work.
