        PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM OF ORIGINAL IMAGES TAKEN IN 1926 BY AN ENGLISH SETTLER IN EAST AFRICA WHO SERVED AS A COLONIAL POLICE OFFICER, SHOWING KENYA, THE POLICE FORCE IN NYERI, AND THE KIKUYU AND SWAHILI PEOPLES, 1926-1927

      1927 - This album contains 169 sepia and gelatin-silver photographs, mounted onto black cardstock leaves, many with handwritten captions, housed in an oblong leather album, 10.25" x 14.25". The photographs vary in size from 6.5" x 4.5" to 2.5" x 1.5". Added to the original images are more than 40 published photographic illustrations, some very large. This coloniail police officer's album centers on Nyeri, where he came to know many of the Kikuyu and Swahili people, resulting in some stellar snapshots of their dwellings, bomas, traditional costumes, and work as laborers for the colony. A predominant theme throughout is the training of the Askaris and the many Africans with whom he interacted. Our African adventure begins on board the "Usurama" with views of Malaga, Stromboli, Acien, and Port Said, and including a tour of Aden. ~~ Historic photographs in Nyeri include the first police station, the popular White Rhino Hotel, Askaris practicing bayonet-fighting, the town of Karatina. the Thego River Estate, Mount Kenya, etc. Street scenes in Nairobi are tranquil and charming, capturing the historic Savoy Hotel on Caledonian Road, Lamberts Ltd, McIvor's Garage, etc. Also documented is a sojourn to Chania Falls in the nearby town of Thika. On July 31, our photographer journeyed to Longido in Tanganyika [now Tanzania], stopping at the customs office with his cargo. Some interesting images show the crude yet effective ferry service as it was some 90 years ago, connecting Mombasa to the mainland. Other photographs show that the police officer became a merchant, transporting 35 cases of vermouth and 10 cases of whiskey from Mombasa to Nairobi for two different clients. Inland journeys through swampy regions required a robust six-wheel truck. ~~ Affluent, influential Europeans are seen and named on their estates and in various locales. Fellow police officers are identified by name. (In the 1920s, police duties involved night patrols in urban areas, responding to property crimes, enforcement of labor laws on settler's farms, even the execution of death sentences, with the over-riding duty of protecting Europeans and their property.) ~~ This is a very flavorful album of East Africa in the 1920s, seen through the eyes and camera lens of a police officer who had the inside track.

        The World Crisis: 1916-1918, Part II

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1927. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is a jacketed British first edition, first printing of the fourth volume of Churchill's history of the First World War, The World Crisis. Of The World Crisis, Churchill bibliographer Frederick Woods wrote: "The volumes contain some of Churchill's finest writing, weaving the many threads together with majestic ease, describing the massive battles in terms which fitly combine relish of the literary challenge with an awareness of the sombre tragedy of the events." Churchill was in a special position to write this history, having served both in the Cabinet and on the Front. He served as First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 until 1915. After the failure in the Dardanelles and the slaughter at Gallipoli Churchill was scapegoated and forced to resign. Rather remarkably, he spent part of his political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Before war's end, Churchill was exonerated and rejoined the Government, but the stigma would linger. Churchill may have meant for his history of the First World War to clear his name, but his six volume masterwork far exceeds this purpose. The events of the 1916-1918 volumes include Churchill's time at the Front and his return to the Cabinet. Many consider the British edition aesthetically superior to the U.S., with its larger volumes and shoulder notes summarizing the subject of each page. British first edition dust jackets are not only extremely scarce, but notoriously brittle, particularly those for the 1916-1918 volumes. Individual jacketed volumes are rarely seen or offered outside of full, six-volume sets. Here is a near fine first printing of 1916-1918, Part II in the correct, first printing dust jacket. The blue cloth boards remain unusually clean and free of scuffing, befitting a jacketed copy. The binding remains tight with sharp corners, bright spine gilt, and only trivial wear to corners and spine ends. We note a slight inward warp to the front cover. The contents remain crisp and bright with no previous ownership marks. The volume feels unread. Spotting is modest for the edition, primarily confined to the first and final leaves and the page edges. The first printing dust jacket shows shallow chipping to a maximum depth of 3/8 inch at the spine ends and edges. Shelf presentation is quite respectable, with an evenly-toned but otherwise clean dust jacket spine. A clean split all along the front hinge nearly disappears beneath the removable, archival quality clear dust jacket protector, as do partial splits at the flap folds. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A69.1(III-2).a, Woods/ICS A31(aa), Langworth p.103.

      . . Tschernikows Hauptwerk. Dieses Buch ist eines der seltensten und gesuchtesten Architektur-Publikationen unserer Zeit, und darüber hinaus eines der am aufwendigsten gedruckten Kunstbücher im nachrevolutionären Russland. Tschernikow war ein konstruktivistischer Architekt. Seine Bücher über Architektur, die zwischen 1927 und 1933 veröffentlicht wurden, gehören zu den innovativsten der damaligen Zeit. Seine 1933 veröffentlichten "101 Architektur-Phantasien" gehören zu den letzten Büchern der Avantgarde, die während der Stalin-Ära in Russland noch publiziert wurden. Mit seinen außergewöhnlichen Ideen machte er sich verdächtig. Obwohl er weiter unterrichten und vortragen durfte, wurde kaum einer seiner Entwürfe realisiert. Eines der wenigen Bauwerke Tschernikows, die sich erhalten haben, ist der Turm der "Fabrik Rote Nelke" in St. Petersburg. Schönes Exemplar der extrem selten Veröffentlichung. - MoMa 1022.

Both volumes of this two volume set are in very good+ condition in dark blue cloth covered boards with gilt text on the spine and on the front board together with a gilt seal for The American School of Classical Studies at Athens. The Plates volume is a large folio measuring 21" by 15" with ribbon ties. There are two small 1/4" areas at the head and heel of the spine where the cloth is worn through and the same is true at the lower tips of the boards and there is an assortment of small, faint stains to the covers. The first free end page is wrinkled and shows three1/3" repaired closed tears at its lower edge. The text volume is a quarto measuring 12" by 9" with the spine slanted and with foxing to the front end sheets and a 1" square tape repair to the lower fore corner of the free end page. There is a small rent to the cloth on the front board above the second "H" in the word "Erechtheum". Faint spots of foxing are also present around all edges of the text block. Both volumes are signed in pencil by the author (Stevens) at the bottom edge of the title pages. This set came from the author's personal library. The Plates volume is unpaginated, but contains all 54 plates as called for in the nine page "Description of Plates". The plates in this volume are not loose as they have been in other copies seen. Instead, they are all bound-into what was the original chemise and modified to a case binding. The Text volume contains 673 pages including an extensive general index, indices for Greek and Latin Authors and Inscriptions, Greek Words, and Proper Names in the Inscriptions. This volume is illustrated with 236 line drawings and black and white photographs.

        TO THE LIGHTHOUSE

      1927. [a handsome copy] London: Published by Leonard & Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press, 1927. Original blue cloth. First Edition of one of Virginia Woolf's best-known novels. It is a prime example of Woolf's stream-of-consciousness technique, as Marcel Proust and James Joyce had recently pioneered; with little dialogue or action (it relates to visits of the Ramsay family to the Isle of Skye during the 1910s), the novel consists of much philosophical introspection, especially relating to childhood emotions.~This is a close-to-fine copy (spine very slightly dusty -- not nearly as dull as usual; minor foxing to only the page edges). TO THE LIGHTHOUSE in a nice example of its dust jacket has become a $20,000+ book, so the novel without a jacket has become a reasonable alternative for many collectors. Kirkpatrick A10a; Connolly's Modern Movement #54 ("the height of her luminous impressionist vision"); #15 on the Modern Library list of the 100 best novels of the 20th Century.

        Gouden Vlinders

      1927. LOEBER, Lou. Gouden Vlinders. By Simon Franke. Illustrated with 18 plates by Lou Loeber. 8vo., bound in original illustrated wrappers, in a new green cloth box. Blaricum: De Waelburgh, 1927. |~||~||~||~| A delightful Dutch illustrated book reflecting a mixture of the effects of De Stijl, Cubism and the Bauhaus, where she had gone to work in 1927. Loeber was born in Holland in 1894 and had a long and productive life, but this would appear to be the only book she illustrated. Not in any of the standard references. A very rare book with OCLC listing only 5 copies worldwide, one at Princeton and 4 in Holland.

        A Map of Honolulu and the Sandwich Islands which we now call the Hawaiian Islands

      New York.: Henry M. Snyder.. 1927.. Color pictorial map poster, 27 1/8 x 35 3/8 on sheet 28 3/8 x 36 1/2 inches, early linen backing. Tackhole in each corner and to the middle of each edge, overall toning, scattered foxing, some creases from rolling. A pictographic bird's eye view style street map of Honolulu is surrounded by a border of pictures relating to the history, customs, natural history and scenery of the islands. Decorative cartouche at upper left reads, "In this map you will find depicted in Pictorial Fashion the history, land-marks & customs of these colorful Isles." There is an inset map (9 x 11 3/4 inches) showing the Hawaiian Islands, and small inset images of the Palace Square and Schofield Barracks. This beautiful map was designed by Alexander Samuel MacLeod (1888-1956) who worked in the art departments of various Hawaii magazines and newspapers when he arrived in Hawaii in the 1920s; he also pursued a career as a painter and lithographer. A stunning design packed with interesting information and attractive images. One of the late 1920s decorative maps with a clear debt to the work of MacDonald Gill. This map is more commonly seen folded; this copy was apparently issued flat. .

        Preliminary Drawing for Treasure Island

      Preliminary pencil and watercolour drawing for 'Treasure Island' by Dulac, n.d. but circa 1927, mounted, framed and glazed, approximately 185mm x 220mm in size, with the image 115mm x 150mm. This one is 'Bristol', inscribed 'to Marius Winslow from Edmund Dulac' to bottom left hand corner. Dulac's Treasure Island was published in 1927, with Hughey noting that the twelve watercolours in the book, "show a new Dulac style. Here he uses pale misty colours and creates little miniature gems of 18th century scenes ... The detailing and design of the pictures present some of Dulac's most careful and superb painting. He himself liked these illustrations best of all of his work" (Hughey, Edmund Dulac - His Book Illustrations: A Bibliography). Signed by Artist. First Edition. Framed and Glazed. Very Good. Illus. by Dulac, Edmund. 8vo. Original Artwork.
