        DeMILLE'S KING OF KINGS .1927. SPECTACULAR ORIGINAL LOBBY CARDS - RARE - FN/VF

      1927 - WE ARE DELIGHTED TO OFFER THREE DIFFERENT LOBBY CARDS FROM CECIL B. DeMILLE'S INCOMPARABLE KING OF KINGS ! Reportedly DeMille's personal favorite of the many movies he made, this is a film that practically defined the word "epic." In our experience, all of the original material from this film is quite rare, dating from the silent era over 80 years ago. THREE LOBBY CARDS ARE OFFERED HERE. The consignor obtained these from a defunct Illinois movie theater decades ago. Apparently the theater owner had small frames (these LCs date from the silent era), and trimmed two of these lobbies so they would fit into his frames. Fortunately, one of these lobbies is still a full 11" x 14", while the other two are trimmed to about 8.5" x 13". The full border lobby is spectacular, with just extremely slight wear (it has a very tiny one quarter of an inch tear into the image area background). The two trimmed lobbies have a few pinholes along their edges. We grade the full lobby a remarkable FINE/VERY FINE, and the other two "trimmed FINE." All look extremely attractive and would display well. This is a rare, if not unique, opportunity to obtain original paper from this extremely important motion picture. Condition: FN/VF

        The Story of My Experiments with Truth.

      Navajivan Press, Ahmedabad. 1927, 1929. - First edition in English. Translated from the original Gujarati by Mahadev Haribhai Desai and Pyarelel Nair. Octavo. Two volumes: pp [xii], 602; viii, 608. Frontispiece portraits. Original tan cloth lettered in black. From the Library of Henry Whitehead, Bishop of Madras, with a presentation inscription to him on the front free endpaper: "To Bishop and Mrs Whitehead in grateful remembrance of April-July 1927 - [?].S.D" and with the rubber ownership stamp of the Bishop of Madras "S. Ganesan, Triplicane, Madras, S.E." The presentee, brother of the philosopher, Alfred North Whitehead, was the author of two books on India. In 1916 he and his wife hosted Gandhi for a week's visit at their Madras home. While there, Gandhi addressed a missionary conference on the subject of Swadeshi, the principle of self-reliance based on production from one's own country. Although the bishop admired Gandhi for championing the cause of his people in South Africa, he was rather less generous when it came to Gandhi's involvement in Indian politics. A day later, Whitehead's wife, Isabel, chaired the annual meeting of the Social Service League at which Gandhi spoke, expressing views that, once again, the bishop did not find "helpful". Years later, he remembered Gandhi as "a delightful and most interesting guest and obviously a man of transparent honesty and sincerity" but then added, "He could not see that the true enemy of the soul of India was not western civilisation, but Indian tradition." Very good set, Vol. II in a good dustwrapper with insect damage to the edges and the hinges but with no effect on the book itself. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Blütezeit in Werder. Aquarell auf Bütten, 51 x 73 cm, unten links signiert, verso bezeichnet und mit eigenhändiger Adressangabe versehen.

      [In den Ecken kleine Löcher einer früheren Montage, eine Fehlstelle an der rechten unteren Ecke, eine kleine Fehlstelle an der linken unteren Ecke, am linken Rand drei Einriße, an der rechten oberen Ecke ein kleines Loch, verso Spuren einer ehemaligen Klebemontage.]. Farbintensives, wohl 1927 entstandenes Blatt, passend zum Blatt "Baumblüte in Werder" (Hellwich/Röske 27/27, Archiv-Nr. 602). - Paul Kuhfuss (1883-1960) erhielt seine Ausbildung zunächst an der Königlichen Kunstschule und später an der Königlichen Akademischen Hochschule für bildende Künste (heute UdK) bei Anton von Werner und Philipp Franck. Ab 1913 stellte er regelmäßig u.a. bei der Großen Berliner Kunstausstellung, der Freien Secession und der Berliner Secession aus. Von 1935 bis '45 zog er sich auf Grund von Denunziation und Repressionen zurück und übte öffentlich nur seinen Lehrberuf aus, der ihm materielle Unabhängigkeit sicherte. Nach 1945 war er weiterhin als Lehrer tätig und durfte zunächst wieder ausstellen, geriet aber im Zuge der Formalismusdiskussion auf Grund seiner Position der "Eigengesetzlichkeit der Kunst" selbstredend erneut ins Abseits. - Provenienz: Das Blatt stammt aus dem hier vorliegenden, bisher unbekannten Nachlass der Illustratorin und Bühnenbildnerin Gerda Schafhirt, einer Gefährtin von Kuhfuss, die u.a. den Sommer 1955 mit ihm zusammenlebend und -arbeitend in Born auf dem Darss verbrachte, und ist entsprechend noch nicht bei Hellwich/Röske verzeichnet. Bei weitergehendem Interesse können Sie mich gerne kontaktieren.

        A War Record of the 21st London Regiment Surrey (First Surrey Rifles) 1914-1919

      H.B. Skinner London, 1927 - First edition in the original green cloth, with silver regimental crest to the front board. A phenomenal copy with huge historical interest, signed by Winston Churchill and a number of generals and figures of authority to the title page. Signatures include Field Marshall Montgomery of Alamein, Field Marshall Allenby, Chief Scout Baden-Powell, Field Marshall Byng of Vimy, Field Marshall Claus W. Jacob, and General Herbert Gough of the Fifth Army among others. Also included is a hand written letter and original envelope by Minister Cornelius Greenway of the All Souls Universalist Church, to a Mr Craddock Jones, which adds interesting provenance. It reads: 'Dear Mr Craddock-Jones, I received your letter telling me all about your book with the signatures on the title page. I have the autographed photographs of everyone you mention and of all these gallant leaders a longhand letter, with the exception of your Prime Minister. He honoured me with his signed (?) only. Your patriotic spirit is very commendable and I am willing to help you, only I have all the signers in your book and only last year I made a contribution to the Lord Mayor of London for the (?) fund. If you send the book registered mail, and when I receive it I will mail you $500.00 I am doing this to help you as I have all the signers. This all for England's sake, and I am willing to help all I can - we are the complaints of democracy! Sincerely, Cornelius Greenaway'. The letter is undated, but 'Replied 8/11/41' is written presumably in Craddock-Jones hand to the top left hand corner. Cornelius was a huge collector of autographs, manuscripts, autographed photographs and first editions, and rumoured to have more than 6000 including big names such as President Washington, Jefferson, Stalin, Albert Einstein and Hitler among others. He served as a Corporal in the Army in WW1. Binding has minor rubbing to the spine ends and corners, and a small nick to the cloth towards the base of the spine otherwise in very good condition. Contents clean and bright, 277pp. A scarce title in it's own right, incredible featuring so many generals signatures, and a real point of historical and militarial interest.  [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Dracula.

      New York: Grosset & Dunlap,, [1927]. Octavo. Original orange cloth, titles to spine and front board in black. With the dust jacket. Spine ends slightly creased. Otherwise a fine copy with the bright jacket, spine ends slightly creased and nicked. This New York edition of Stoker's classic was produced to cash in on the success of the stage play. Dracula was first adapted for the English stage by Hamilton Deane in 1924, the adaptation being authorized by Stoker's widow. Deane had originally intended to play the title role himself, but in the event opted for the role of Van Helsing. This production toured England for three years before settling in London. In 1927 the play was brought to Broadway by Horace Liveright, who hired John L. Balderston to revise the script for American audiences. The American production starred Bela Lugosi in his first major English-speaking role, with Edward Van Sloan as Van Helsing; both actors reprised their roles in the 1931 film version, which drew on the Deane–Balderston play. The rear flap of dust jacket has printed instructions to "Preserve this wrapper for future reference", and a list of Grosset and Dunlap publications on the verso, indicating that by this date printed dust jackets were no longer treated as disposable wrappers to be discarded before sale.

        The Tibetan Book of the Dead: or, The After-Death Experiences on the Bardo Plane, according to Lāma Kazi Dawa-Samdup’s English Rendering

      London: Oxford University Press, 1927. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. First English language edition, first printing. xliv, 248pp. Original green cloth with gilt lettering, gilt topstain. Dulled spine lettering and spine cloth slightly sunned, else Near Fine with former owners's name written on paste down. Lacking jacket. A very nice copy of Evans-Wentz's translation of the Tibetan Buddhist text the Bardo Thodol. Its title was invented by the translator due to the book's similarities with the ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead. (That title, coincidentally, was also a total invention of its first modern translator, Karl Richard Lepsius. So apparently many civilizations have a book about the dead but none actually has one called The Book of the Dead. Go figure.)

        Complete Run of the Sherlock Holmes Stories, As Well as 2 Complete Novels, in the Individual Strand Magazines

      Strand, London and New York 1927 - 75 vols. 1st appearances anywhere, in the original monthly parts, of all 56 stories and both of the novels (The Adventures, The Memoirs, Hound of the Baskervilles, The Return, Valley of Fear, His Last Bow, and The Casebook), being every Holmes story that Doyle ever wrote, and the 2 novels published serially in these magazines (only A Study in Scarlet and The Sign of Four were not published in the Strands). All are the "London and NY" issues except The Hound which is imprinted "NY and London." Half the spines faded, some chips, tears, and strengthening, else very good, and most crucially, it's all here, and rarer than a football player blaming God for a defeat, and it's quite a beguiling time capsule of wide ranging content, fashion, illustration and advertising. The first modern media spectacle, and the model for all that followed, exploded when these Strands were issued. After the first 2 or 3 stories, unprecedented buzz generated long queues, stretching for blocks, at newsstands on the day of the months that each was published. Yet, despite those sales, sets in wrappers are now of the utmost rarity, but in reverse of their chronology. The Adventures and The Memoirs are seen occasionally, and sets of them are 100 times rarer in wrappers than when they've been rebound, or in the annual Strand collected clothbound form that is so often seen, or even the later cloth 1st editions. The Hound is 5 times scarcer again than The Adventures or Memoirs and the same proportions hold true for its relative scarcity over the bound Strands or the clothbound 1st edition. Then it gets crazy. Complete sets of The Return and Valley of Fear, in wrappers, are rare, and significantly less obtainable than their predecessors, and complete runs of His Last Bow and The Casebook, might as well be impossible. In fact, hopes for finding any of the last 4 in wrappers, complete with all their covers, other contents and ads, belong in the morgue, as few booksellers, collectors or librarians, have ever seen a single set of them for sale, at any price, in any condition. Sherlock Holmes is the most durable, and most famous, character in the entire landscape of literature, and the stories are sheer stardust, the morphine drip of impeccably contrived, mind expanding detective fiction, and the most often imitated, parodied and adapted works in the English language.
