The first treatment of Dreiser's classic was written in the late 20s by the Russian master, Sergei Eisenstein, who was actually hired by Lasky to come to Hollywood in 1930 to direct a film.

A second version was film in 1951 starring Montgomery Clift and Elizabeth Taylor, entitled "A Place in the Sun".

        Mathematical Investigations in the Theory of Value and Prices

      1926. Signed. 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 Gressens. Gressens wrote “On the Measurement of Seasonal Variations” (Journal of the American Statistical Association, June 1926, pp. 203-10), as well as “The Validity of Correlation in Time Sequences and a New Coefficient of Similarity” (with E.D. Mouzon, Jr., ibid, Dec. 1927, pp. 483-92). The latter gave birth to a widely used concept known as the Gressen and Mouzons Coefficient.Only slightest rubbing and soiling to cloth. A most desirable inscribed presentation/association copy in near-fine condition.

        MILÙ, eigentlich Maria de Lurdes de Almeida Lemos, (* 24. April 1926 in Lissabon, Portugal ? 5. November 2008 in Cascais, Portugal) war eine portugiesische Schauspielerin und Sängerin original signiertes Foto gewidmet original autographed photo dedicated

      11,7 X 16 cm tadelloser ZustandMilú, eigentlich Maria de Lurdes de Almeida Lemos, (* 24. April 1926 in Lissabon, Portugal ? 5. November 2008 in Cascais, Portugal) war eine portugiesische Schauspielerin und Sängerin Nach kleineren Auftritten bereits mit Sieben sang sie im Alter von 10 Jahren erstmals alleine im Radio, das Lied O amor é cego e vê (dt.: Die Liebe ist blind und sieht), aus dem Film Bocage (1936). 1938 stand sie erstmals sowohl auf der Theaterbühne, in einem populären Kinderstück im Teatro Éden, als auch vor der Filmkamera, in Chianca de Garcias Aldeia da Roupa Branca (dt.: Dorf der weißen Wäsche), als Zwölfjährige an der Seite von Beatriz Costa. Im staatlichen Rundfunk Emissora Nacional trat sie nun regelmäßig auf, sowohl mit Liedern als auch mit Rezitationen und in Hörstücken.Auf Grund ihres Aussehens, dass dem Schönheitsideal der Zeit entsprach, engagierte der ehemalige UFA-Schauspieler Arthur Duarte 1943 die 17-jährige Milú für seinen Film O Costa do Castelo (dt.: Der Costa vom Castelo-Viertel), wo sie eine Hauptrolle an der Seite von António Silva bekam. Der Film wurde ein bis heute populärer Kassenschlager, und machte auch Milú zum Star, die im Film ihre zwei bekanntesten Lieder sang, Minha Casinha (dt.: Mein trautes Heim) und Cantiga da Rua (dt.: Straßenlied). Noch 1943 gab sie bekannt, dass sie heiraten und sich nach ihren spanischen Filmengagements aus dem Showgeschäft zurückziehen werde, was eine Welle von Sympathiebekundungen und Aufforderungen, nicht aufzuhören, nach sich zog. 1946, nach ihrer Scheidung, nahm sie wieder Filmrollen an. In der Folge nahm sie zahlreiche Schallplatten für Valentim de Carvalho auf, und bekam Filmrollen in portugiesischen und spanischen Produktionen. Neben der populären Beatriz Costa, und zusammen mit Maria Eugénia, war Milú einer der beliebtesten weiblichen Stars des Portugiesischen Films der 1940er und 50er Jahre. Sie galt als Schönheits-Ikone und zierte zahlreiche zeitgenössischen Titelblätter in Portugal. Auch in zahlreichen Stücken des Revue-Theaters stand sie auf der Bühne, darunter in Agora é que são elas in Lissabon 1953, an der Seite von Raul Solnado und João Villaret 1954 in Não Faças Ondas (dt.: Mache keine Wellen), und 1960 in Ven y Ven in Barcelona.[1][2]Die seit den frühen 50er Jahren wiederkehrenden Angebote aus Hollywood, die sie ausschlug, fanden ein Ende, als sie 1960 erneut heiratete, und in die brasilianische Heimat ihres Mannes zog. Von 1960 bis 1968 lebte sie in Brasilien, wo sie bis auf einige Fernsehauftritte und gelegentliche Schallplattenaufnahmen nicht öffentlich in Erscheinung trat. Nach ihrer Rückkehr drehte sie 1969 mit dem populären Sänger und Schauspieler António Calvário, bevor sie für José Fonseca e Costas Erfolgsfilm Kilas, o Mau da Fita (dt.: Kilas, der Böse des Streifens) ein letztes Mal vor der Filmkamera stand.[3]Sie ist bis heute eines der bekanntesten Gesichter der Hochphase des Portugiesischen Films der 1940er Jahre. Auch die von ihr gesungenen Lieder wurden bekannte Schlager in Portugal, die bis heute ähnlich populär wie die Filme blieben. So hat beispielsweise die Band Peste & Sida auf ihrem Album Eles andam aí! (1992) eine Version des bekannten Liedes Cantiga da Rua aus dem Film O Costa do Castelo (1943) aufgenommen. Zuvor hatten Xutos & Pontapés mit ihrer Version von Minha Casinha 1987 bereits Verkaufsrekorde gebrochen: über 40 Jahre nachdem Milú das Lied gesungen hatte, wurde die Band nach der, als "7 Single" vermarkteten Single zur erfolgreichsten Band in der portugiesischen Geschichte.2007 wurde Milú von Präsident Cavaco Silva der Orden des heiligen Jakob vom Schwert (Ordem de Sant'Iago da Espada) verliehen.Nachdem sie zuletzt ihr Augenlicht weitgehend eingebüßt hatte, litt sie in ihren letzten Tagen 2008 an Entzündungen der Atemwege, an denen sie am 5. November 2008 starb. (Quelle: Wikipedia) Lager 1

        AN ORIGINAL PORTRAIT OF DOUGLAS FAIRBANKS BY MELBOURNE SPURR, INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY FAIRBANKS IN 1926

      1926. 1926 - 1926. 1926. Very good. - sc - A 10 inch high by 8 inch wide sepia toned soft focus photograph of the Hollywood movie star Douglas Fairbanks by the great Hollywood photographer of the 1920's Melbourne Spurr. The image depicts the debonair star of Hollywood swashbuckling epics in three-quarter profile from the chest up. Attired in a sepia jacket over a white shirt with striped tie, Fairbanks focuses his soft gaze and winning smile toward the camera. The photographer's name "Melbourne Spurr / Hollywood" is stamped in blind at bottom left. The portrait is boldly inscribed and signed in ink by Fairbanks diagonally at bottom right: "To Mrs. Fred Carson [sp?] / Best Wishes / Douglas Fairbanks / 1926". There is some minor creasing to the bottom left corner of the photograph. This beautiful portrait is handsomely matted. The American actor and leading man Douglas Fairbanks (1883-1939) is best known for his swashbuckling roles in silent films such as "Robin Hood", "The Thief of Bagdad" and "The Mark of Zorro". In addition to his acting career, Fairbanks was a screenwriter, director and producer who was one of the founders of United Artists and of The Motion Picture Academy, hosting the first Oscar ceremonies in 1929. Married to Mary Pickford, the couple were regarded as Hollywood royalty.Melbourne Spurr (1888-1964) first worked for the noted Hollywood photographer Fred Hartsook. Mary Pickford was so impressed with his work that she helped launch his career as a Hollywood portrait photographer. Spurr who, by the mid 1920's, was considered one of the great celebrity portraitists resisted signing on exclusively with one of the major movie studios, preferring instead to keep his own photography studio. Though he shined throughout the 20's, his Hollywood career gradually declined due to pressure from the large movie companies and Spurr moved on to photographing other major figures including Presidents, artists, authors, and dancers.

        Winnie-the-Pooh.

      London: Methuen & Co., 1926 - Octavo. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in green morocco, titles and pictorial centre tools to spine gilt, single rule to boards gilt, multiple pictorial blocks to boards gilt, floral endpapers, with the original endpapers bound in, twin rule to turn-ins, gilt edges. A fine copy. Illustrated by E. H. Shepard. 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.

        Die Pilze Mitteleuropas. Herausgegeben von der deutschen Gesellschaft für Pilzenkunde, der deutschen botanischen Gesellschaft, dem deutschen Lehrerverein für Naturkunde unter Redaktion von H. Kniep, Berlin, P. Claussen, Marburg und J. Baß, Stuttgart mit Verwertung des Nachlasses von Adalbert Ricken.

      - Leipzig, Werner Klinkhardt, 1926-1943. In 36 issues. Folio and large 4to. (35.4 x 25.0 cm). 400 [158; 56, 62; 24] pp., 88 plates (57 in full colour), numerous text figures. All in original printed wrappers.l Rare atlas with accompanying text leaves, and with fine plates after watercolours by Maria and Franz Kallenbach. According to Volbracht "Die erste Auflage bliebt wegen des Zweiten Weltkrieges unvollendet". Contents are as follows: Die Röhrlinge (Boletaceae) by F. Kallenbach, in 21 issues (reference text ending prematurely on p. 158 - the last title has an author’s name starting with H); Gallertpilze (Tremelluneae) by W. Neuhoff and die Milchlinge (Lactarii) by B. Knauth and W. Neuhoff in 12 issues; die Täublinge (Russulae) by Schäffer in 3 issues - in total 36 issues. This is all that was published before the end of WWII. Long after the war (1956), a new edition of Knauth's work on Lactarii, written by Neuhoff, was published. Around that time, Meinhard Moser contributed another part (Band IV) on the Schleimköpfe (Phlegmaticum). The latter is not in Volbracht. Both post-war parts are very scarce and not included here. The Russulae part has unusual pagination based on the systematic order of the species. However, only six species (numbered 8, 11, 35, 38, 62, and 63) were treated, each with four pages, for a total of 24 pages. Added: two leaflets, both in the 16th issue. One is a preprinted form "Eine Bitte zur Mitarbeit!", with a return address for providing additional data for "Die geographische Verbreitung der Röhrlinge" by Franz Kallenbach (which probably never materialized into a new geography of the Boletaceae), and one sales leaflet announcing the reprint of Fries' "Hymenomycetes Europaei" and, depending on enough interest, his "Monographia hymenomycetum Sueciae", as well as an overview of the series "Die Pilze Mitteleuropas". A few short annotations in the text, one rear wrapper detached, a few plates with marginal chipping and fraying, one uncoloured plate in duplicate. Schliemann, 551 quotes only 55 plates.

        The Prophet (Uncommon de luxe, Holiday Edition in the original box)

      Alfred A. Knopf MCMXXVI (1926), New York - Attractively bound in white velum-paper spine stamped in brown with paper tips. The spine is darkened and discolored. In gold decorated boards stamped with a red circle in which the Prophet's golden hand holds dancing humanity. Wear and flecking to the gold along the front and rear edges of the boards. Internally near fine, clean and tight; virtually unread. With "The Twelve Illustrations in this Volume Reproduced from Original Drawings by the Author." A beautiful book. With the original cardboard box with laid paper lines and with the paste-down label: "The Prophet".and describing this de luxe, Holiday Edition of The Prophet which has been set by hand and embellished with twelve drawings by the author, reproduced in collotype." The box is quite worn with 10 short pieces of tape holding the back of the box in place. The Prophet is a book of 26 prose poetry fables written in English by the Lebanese-American artist, philosopher and writer Kahlil Gibran. It was originally published in 1923 by Alfred A. Knopf. It is Gibran's best known work. The Prophet has been translated into over 40 different languages and has never been out of print. The prophet, Almustafa, has lived in the foreign city of Orphalese for 12 years and is about to board a ship which will carry him home. He is stopped by a group of people, with whom he discusses topics such as life and the human condition. The book is divided into chapters dealing with love, marriage, children, giving, eating and drinking, work, joy and sorrow, houses, clothes, buying and selling, crime and punishment, laws, freedom, reason and passion, pain, self-knowledge, teaching, friendship, talking, time, good and evil, prayer, pleasure, beauty, religion, and death. Though born a Maronite, he was influenced not only by his own religion but also by Islam, and especially by the mysticism of the Sufis. His knowledge of Lebanon's bloody history, with its destructive factional struggles, strengthened his belief in the fundamental unity of religions, which his parents exemplified by welcoming people of various religions in their home. Connections and parallels have also been made to William Blake's work, as well as the theological ideas of Walt Whitman and in Ralph Waldo Emerson such as reincarnation and the Over-soul. Themes of influence in his work were Islamic/Arabic art, European Classicism (particularly Leonardo Da Vinci) andRomanticism (Blake and Auguste Rodin), the pre-Raphelite Brotherhood, and more modern symbolism and surrealism. Gibran followed The Prophet with The Garden of The Prophet, which was published posthumously in 1933. The Garden of the Prophet narrates Almustafa's discussions with nine disciples following Almustafa's return after an intervening absence. (Wikipedia) Later printing with a 1926 title page date and the 1923 copyright date. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        AN ORIGINAL PORTRAIT OF DOUGLAS FAIRBANKS BY MELBOURNE SPURR, INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY FAIRBANKS IN 1926

      1926.. 1926.. Very good. - sc - A 10 inch high by 8 inch wide sepia toned soft focus photograph of the Hollywood movie star Douglas Fairbanks by the great Hollywood photographer of the 1920's Melbourne Spurr. The image depicts the debonair star of Hollywood swashbuckling epics in three-quarter profile from the chest up. Attired in a sepia jacket over a white shirt with striped tie, Fairbanks focuses his soft gaze and winning smile toward the camera. The photographer's name "Melbourne Spurr / Hollywood" is stamped in blind at bottom left. The portrait is boldly inscribed and signed in ink by Fairbanks diagonally at bottom right: "To Mrs. Fred Carson [sp?] / Best Wishes / Douglas Fairbanks / 1926". There is some minor creasing to the bottom left corner of the photograph. This beautiful portrait is handsomely matted. <p>The American actor and leading man Douglas Fairbanks (1883-1939) is best known for his swashbuckling roles in silent films such as "Robin Hood", "The Thief of Bagdad" and "The Mark of Zorro". In addition to his acting career, Fairbanks was a screenwriter, director and producer who was one of the founders of United Artists and of The Motion Picture Academy, hosting the first Oscar ceremonies in 1929. Married to Mary Pickford, the couple were regarded as Hollywood royalty.<p>Melbourne Spurr (1888-1964) first worked for the noted Hollywood photographer Fred Hartsook. Mary Pickford was so impressed with his work that she helped launch his career as a Hollywood portrait photographer. Spurr who, by the mid 1920's, was considered one of the great celebrity portraitists resisted signing on exclusively with one of the major movie studios, preferring instead to keep his own photography studio. Though he shined throughout the 20's, his Hollywood career gradually declined due to pressure from the large movie companies and Spurr moved on to photographing other major figures including Presidents, artists, authors, and dancers.

        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. Bumping to corners and ends of spine, with a touch of rubbing to extremities, single torn leaf neatly repaired. 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.

Raised bands. Top edge gilt. Fore-and bottom page edges untrimmed. Ribbon marker in Vol.I. Two stains to fore page edge on Vol.II. Marbled endpapers. Ex Libris. Tissue-guarded frontispiece of Isabella D'Este in both volumes. "Isabella D'Este, the Marchioness of Mantua (1474-1539) was one of the dazzling figures of the Italian Renaissance, playing the Renaissance game with an expertise that outflanked Popes and Emperors, using her brains, her charm, and her unswerving purpose to psych her opponents. This is the first of an important Renaissance figure. It is above all as a patron of art and letters that Isabella D'Este will be remembered. In this respect she deserves a place with the most enlightened princes of the Renaissance, with Lorenzo de Medici and Lodovico Sforza. This book provides a thorough examination of D'Este's life, and a detailed account of an intriguing woman of the Italian Renaissance..." (from "Historical biographies"). Illustrated with reproductions of b/w photographs and paintings. Very good condition.
