        Gwoyeu Romatzyh Pin in Farshyh [National Language (i.e., Mandarin) Romanization System]. Gwoin-tzyhmuu dih ell shyh. Gwoyeu Toongi Chourbey Huey jyh. Jonghwa Min Gwo shyrwuu nian shyri yueh

      [N.p. 1927 - Pp. 12. 1 vols. 8vo. Gwoyeu Romatzyh Pinin Farshyh. The introduction mentions T. E. Wade and his system of representing Chinese characters, as well as the Postal (Telegraph) coding system, which employed supplemental characters to represent the different tones. The pamphlet is an explanation, at once concise and comprehensive, of the use of the Gwoyeu Romatzyh Romanization.In 1928 the Education Ministry of the Chinese Nationalist Government declared Gwoyeu Romatzyh Pinin Farshyh the national standard. It was created by Y. R. Chao (Zhao Yuanren), the eminent linguist and scholar, and others, and employs a tonal spelling that avoids the use of diacritical marks. It continued in force for a decade after the Communist takeover of China, where it was displaced by the introduction of Hanyu Pinyin in 1958. The system remains popular among educators for its simiplicity; and indeed a modified form of Gwoyeu Romatzyh remains in use in Taiwan. Not in OCLC Original printed wrappers with title in Roman letters and hanzi, stapled, much of text in characters. Browned, some chipping and short tears, ownership stamp on covers, label on spine, else a very good copy of an extremely scarce publication

Only light foxing marks to the end papers of volume III, the plates and pages are as clean and fresh as when first printed and in wonderful Fine condition, various relevant news paper clippings from the 1950's loosely inserted, the nicest first edition set we have ever seen. After coming ashore, Jack Spurling first obtained work as an actor in George Edwards' musical productions, continuing with his painting as a hobby. His ship portraits came to the attention of Frederick Hook, the editor of the popular nautical magazine 'The Blue Peter'. The publication of an initial selection of Jack's paintings proved an immediate success and Hook thereafter commissioned Spurling to produce many more works for the magazine which were published over a number of years. A regular contributor to the same magazine was Basil Lubbock, one of Britain's leading maritime authors at the time, who, between the two World Wars, wrote a series of superlative books on the various aspects of commercial sail which many still regard as the definitive record of a way of life that has now totally disappeared. In the mid-1920s, Lubbock and Spurling were approached by Frederick Hook to collaborate with him on a particularly interesting project which would come to be seen as one of the great milestones in the efforts to chronicle the history of commercial sailing ships. In his editor's preface, Hook wrote: 'Mr. Lubbock's illuminating text sets out the salient points of the history and performances of typical vessels of the clipper ship era. One chief purpose has been adequately and handily to present a selection from amongst Mr. Spurling's pictures, painted for The Blue Peter, reproducing, by a special process, their original qualities of form, movement and colour.' The book produced was 'Sail, The Romance of the Clipper Ships', 3 volumes, London, 1927, 1929 and 1936 respectively. Member of the P.B.F.A.

        Demoniality.

      The Fortune Press, London 1927 - Hardcover. Large Octavo. xliv + 128pp. Original stiff full vellum wrappers with gilt titling to spine, top edge gilt. Deluxe edition, this being copy number 5 of 90 hand-numbered copies SIGNED by Montague Summers and bound in full vellum and printed Arnold on unbleached handmade paper. (There was also a cloth-bound edition of 1200 copies). "De Dæmonialitate, et Incubis et Succubis" was written during the last years of his life by Lodovico Maria Sinistrari, a famous Franciscan theologian who died 6 March, 1701. The work was not printed until 1875, when Isodore Liseux, the well-known French bibliophile, who had discovered the original manuscript in a small bookseller's shop at London in 1872, issued from his press the Latin text with a French translation, apparently made by himself, in 1875. Four years later he issued an English translation of the work. Summers was evidently disatisfied with this translation, which was why he brought out his own English translation. As the title suggests, the work deals in part with Incubi and Succubi, and their congress with human beings, and in 1934 this caught the eyes of British censors, and copies were condemned and ordered to be destroyed under the Obscene Publications Act. The number of copies thus destroyed is unknown, but the book is certainly scarcer than its stated limitation would suggest. This copy with the bookplate and ownership signature of one D. A. Blacketer-Simmonds (a pioneering researcher into Down's Syndrome). Vellum a little darkened and splayed as always, a little browning to the front endpapers, and the merest hint of foxing to the preliminaries. All else fresh and clean: a VG+ copy.

        THE CASE BOOK OF SHERLOCK HOLMES

      1927. New York: George H. Doran Company, (1927). Original grey cloth lettered in red, with dust jacket. First American Edition of the fifth and last collection of Sherlock Holmes adventures -- twelve cases including those of "the Illustrious Client," "the Mazarin Stone," "the Three Garidebs" and "the Veiled Lodger." After each of the Sherlock Holmes volumes (except the first), Doyle claimed that he was through with Sherlock; here, Doyle in his preface again says "And so, reader, farewell to Sherlock Holmes!" -- and this time he meant it.~This copy is of the second issue (in grey rather than tan cloth, and with no publisher's colophon on the copyright page); there was also a third issue, in red cloth lettered in black. The volume is in fine condition. Included is the uncommon dust jacket (likewise second issue -- the same as the first except that there are four reviews, rather than a publisher's blurb, on the rear panel); it is in near-fine condition (rose color on spine faded as usual, a couple of short tears but nothing lacking). Green & Gibson A46c (see final note). Housed in a felt-lined morocco-backed clamshell case.

        Découverte de Longview

      48 pp. documentary-style volume in French on the city of Longview, Washington, built specifically to house 14,000 labourers from the lumber industry, each page with modern typography and American flag decorative borders, illustrated throughout with striking Expressionist-style woodcuts by Masereel. Small 4to. Original pigskin binding with geometric embossing designed by René Kieffer, with small label for Kieffer applied to inside front endpaper. Some minor rubbing to extremities. Paris (Éditions René Kieffer) 1927. One of a limited edition of 200 copies. Longview was one of the first cities to be completely designed and planned out, and then built to those exact specifications, as opposed to most cities which develop naturally and grow over time. It was finished in 1923, and several years later Luc Durtain (the pseudonym of Andre Nepveu, a doctor and author) wrote a story on it. Durtain was interested in surroundings undergoing rapid change and individuals being forced to adapt. For his writings, he traveled to America, Russia, and Asia, covering passion, society, and human behavior. His volume on Longview bears a resemblance to a travel guide. Frans Masereel was a Flemish painter and graphic artist known worldwide for his expressionistic and sociocritical woodcuts, as well as his wordless novels. He was a member of the "De Vijf" or "Les Cinq" group of artists, together with Jan Cantre, Jozef Cantre, Henri van Straten, and Joris Minne.
