        Autograph Letter, signed ("Aldous Huxley"), to Mr. Rimington, regarding photographic portraits of himself

      Florence, Italy, 1927. 1-1/2 pages in ink, on front and rear of single sheet. 1 vols. 4to. Fine. 1-1/2 pages in ink, on front and rear of single sheet. 1 vols. 4to. " ... the photograph is good ... made by the Steichen Studio" Apologizing for not being able to send a photograph of himself any better than the reproduction of one he has cut out of VANITY FAIR from the previous April, Huxley remarks: "I have been living away from my possessions, I could not get at any old portraits ... I'm sorry I can't do better. But the photograph is good - & if by the way, Doran's should want to use any picture for advertising purposes, I wish they'd use this, which was made by the Steichen Studio, New York, or else an excellent newspaper picture made by the Montauk Photograph Co ... . whose address is, I think, Canal Street, near the wharf."

        Candide, or All for the Best.

      New York: The Bennett Libraries Inc.,, 1927. Translated from the French. With 10 etchings. Exact reprint of the earliest English text printed in Holland by Joh. Enschedé en Zonen, founded in Haarlem Anno MDCCIII. Octavo. Publisher's deluxe red morocco, titles and decoration to spine gilt in compartments, covers blocked with elaborate gilt design, Tice nude tan calf onlay to front cover, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, full green and red morocco doublures decorated in gilt, green silk moiré endpapers, red silk page marker. Frontispiece and 9 other plates in two states (10 on japon, 10 on pannekoek paper) with captioned tissue-guards, an additional hand-coloured etching on japon, and an original signed drawing in coloured pencils by Tice. Titles printed in red and black. Spine lightly browned, slight rubbing to head of spine, a little offsetting to endpapers, page marker loose, partly unopened; an excellent copy. First Tice edition, one of three copies extra-illustrated with 11 hand-coloured etchings on japon, from a total edition of 1,000 copies, this copy also with a signed full page original sketch in coloured pencils by Tice on the half-title. This special limitation is presented as a manuscript slip, itself signed and hand-illustrated by Tice, laid down to the limitation page with the justification "One of three copies with Original Etchings". These original etchings thus present all ten original plates in two states, and add an additional illustration (facing p. 30) not given in the normal issue. The rest of the edition consists of 247 copies printed on Pannekoek paper, with colour plates and bound in less elaborately decorated full morocco to a design by Tice, and 750 copies in quarter cloth, with uncoloured plates. The only other copy of this special issue that we can trace at auction did not have the original hand-illustration by Tice present in this copy. Clara Tice (1888–1973) was a notorious New York bohemian artist, known as "the Queen of Greenwich Village". She was, according to the New York Times, the first woman in New York to bob her hair, in 1908. She began exhibiting her art from 1910 and in 1915 her fame skyrocketed when the Society for the Prevention of Vice attempted to confiscate her works at the bohemian restaurant Polly's. "Tice was apparently so highly regarded and so instantly recognizable as one of those 'queer artists' that her role in the first Greenwich Village Follies was simply to play herself. As 'Clara,' she stepped out onto the stage at the appointed time, outfitted in one of her typically bizarre bohemian ensembles, and conducted a 'quick chalk talk of nudes, bees and butterflies'" (Sawelsan-Gorse). Throughout the 1920s she illustrated for Vanity Fair amongst other magazines, and illustrated several books with her softly erotic drawings.

        [SHORT LIFE OF THE SOCIETY OF RUSSIAN SCULPTORS] Katalog 2-i vystavki skul'ptury Obshchestva russkikh skul'ptorov O.R.S. [i.e. The Catalogue of the Second Exhibition of Sculpture of the Society of Russian Sculptors O.R.S.]

      Moscow: Glavnauka, 1927. 16 pp. 17,2x13,3 cm. In original printed wrappers. Very good, two close tears of the spine and some spots near the spine. One of 1000 copies. Very rare. The catalogue for the 2nd exhibition (of only 4 held by the Society) which took place in 1927 provides names of the members and exhibitors with the addresses, for each work materials and titles are named. The catalogue is supplied with a list of the members of the Society with their positions and the address of the board. The Society (ORS) was founded in 1926 by former members of the Moscow Union of Artists and Sculptors. The impetus for the creation was the success of the sculptural department of the OBIS exhibition held in early 1925. The Society consisted of almost all famous Moscow sculptors, and their ranks was regularly replenished by the graduates of the sculpture faculty of Vkhutemas-Vkhutein. About 20 people were constantly members, 10-15 more sculptors were involved as exhibitors (candidates). Many participants were simultaneously members of other societies and unions: Korolev and Kepinov - OMH, Chaikov - «4 iskusstva», Shadr - AHRR; however, the ORS flourished tolerance for various trends in art (including the «left»). The meetings were held mainly in the workshop of Ryndziunskaia. Reports were read and discussed on the problems of sculpture like Ternovets made a report «On Contemporary Sculpture in the West», architect Konstantin Melnikov with a report «On Cooperation of Sculptors and Architects in Contemporary Construction». The ORS didn't have a program but they were determined to strengthened position of sculpture as an independent art genre and paid a lot of attention to raising the level of professionalism. The ORS held 4 exhibitions: in March-April 1926 (the State Historical Museum), in April 1927 (the Museum of the Revolution), in June 1929 and June 1931 (both - the Pushkin Museum), which were partly financed by Glavnauka. The exhibition committee was engaged in selection of works for the exhibitions, at different times it included Vatagin, Efimov, Zlatovratsky, Chaikov, Domogatsky, Mukhina. If the first exhibition declared a sculpture as an independent genre with such strong works like "Flame of Revolution" by Mukhina, the second was supposed to consolidate its positions. For the opening of the 2nd exhibition the monumental Chaikov's sculpture «The Tower of October» was set in front of the Museum of the Revolution. The exhibition was attended by 33 masters who showed 133 works, including: «The Walking Elephant» and «Seated Peacock» by Vatagin, «A.S. Pushkin» by Domogatsky, "The Wind» by Mukhina, «Sitting Woman (Stasya)» by Lebedeva, «Molodaika» by Ryndzyunskaya, «Oktyabrenok» by Sandomirskaya, «Bather», «Mostostroitel» by Chaikov. Since the late 1920s, the ORS was attacked by Proletkult theorists for lack of «ideological content» and adherence to «bourgeois» forms of «sculpture». In the spring of 1932 the Society was liquidated. Worldcat locates only one copy in Getty Research Institute.

        Strande, oft ghedichte van de schelpen, kinckhornen, ende andere wonderlicke zee-schepselen, tot lof van den schepper aller dinghen.Amsterdam, Dirck Pietersz. Pers, 1614. 4to. With woodcut device on title-page with the motto "Templum Dei estis vos". Gold-tooled brown/green (goatskin) morocco (1914), gold-tooled spine, triple gold fillets on boards and double on board edges, richly gold-tooled turn-ins, gilt edges; bound by the leading Brussels bookbinder Charles de Samblanx.

      Knuttel, “Een vergeten dichter” in: De gids XCI (1927), pp. 292-299; STCN (5 copies); for the binder: H. Dubois d'Enghien, La reliure en Belgique au 19e siècle, pp. 147-152. Very rare second edition of a pioneering Dutch renaissance poem on shells, comparable to Huygens's much later and much better known Hofwijck (1653). "If we compare both poets, Huygens has more to say and has a lot more twists than the repetitive Philibert, but the latter is nevertheless more poetic. Van Borssele sees with a painter's eye, speaks more beauty, is more courageous and less forced in his images and epithets, and gives more warmth to his verse" (Knuttel). Van Borsselen based his poems on the collection of shells of his brother-in-law, Cornelis Van Blijenburgh (1545-1618), but it's much more than just a dry enumeration and description. The poem was probably written before 1600 and first published in 1611. Both editions are equally rare. The work is charmingly bound by the leading Brussels bookbinder Charles de Samblanx (1855-1943)."Son œuvre, extrêmement abondant et varié, offrait dans tous les genres des spécimens remarquables. Il avait contribué, pour une largo part, à maintenir dans notre pays l'art de la reliure au niveau élevé où l'avaient porté nos bons relieurs des périodes romantique et Second Empire" (Dubois d'Enghien).With a library stamp. The bookblock is trimmed closely to the letterpress marginal notes, a few times touching a few letters, some minor foxing along the extremities and a restored tear in the last leaf, otherwise in good condition. The binding fine, with only the corners of the boards slightly rubbed.

Its aim is to collect and publish all known ancient Greek inscriptions from the mainland and islands of Greece. Ancient inscriptions are among the most important sources for all areas of research into the ancient world. The first 14 volumes of this Corpus contain an exhaustive collection of Greek inscriptions found in the following regions: Vols. I-III (1873-1895), Athens and Attica; Vols. IV-V (1902-1913), the Peloponnese; Vols. VII-IX (1892-1897), Central Greece; Vols. XI-XII (1895-1927), Aegean Islands; Vol. XIV (1890), Italy and Sicily.As an academic project still continued up to this day, it is important to note that: Volume VI (Inscriptiones Achaeae et Elidis); Vol. VIII (Inscriptiones Delphorum) ; Vol. X (Inscriptiones Epiri, Macedoniae, Thraciae, Scythiae); Vol. XI, part 1; and Vol. XIII (Inscriptiones Cretae insulae) have not yet been published. Vol. XII, part 4 (Inscriptiones Coi, Calymnae, insularum Milesiarum), and part 6 (Inscriptiones Chii et Sami cum Corassiis Icariaque) were not published until 2010, 2012 and 2016 for the 3 fascicules of Vol. XII, part 4; and 2000 and 2003 for the two fascicules of Vol. XII, part 6. Therefore, these seven volumes are evidently not in this collection.Vol. 9, part 2 contains a list of all the books of the Corpus published by Georg Reimer between 1873 and 1908.At the exception for Vol. 11, part 3 which was published in 1927 by De Gruyter, all the other books were published by Georg Reimer.Ex-library copies with stickers at upper front cover and tail of spine of each volume, bookplate on inside of front cover, pocket at rear, and stamp at upper and lower paper edges. Volume one (not the supplement) is a facsimile of the original 1873 edition. All the other volumes are first editions. Water-staining through the first 50 pages of Volume 3, part 1. Text in Latin and Greek. Bindings in overall good+ to very good, interior in good- to good (Vol. 3, part 1) to very good condition (the remaining volumes).

        Art Notes Bound issues 1-85 complete

      1896, October onward to June 1927. 7 Volumes bound in crumbling thin flexible leather. Profusely illustrated in bw. All edges are gilt. This stunning ensemble includes the issues of Art Notes bound as follows: 1-12, 13-24, 25-36, 37-48, 49-60, 61-73, 74-85. These small publications from Macbeth Gallery in New York are incredibly scarce. Macbeth Gallery was the pre-eminent dealer for American Art in NYC beginning in the 1890s. They published these small booklets to both promote their stock and to educate their customers. They are filled with anecdotal and ephemeral information that will not be found elsewhere. In 23 years, this is the first set of these I have had, and likely the last I will see. Covers are poor. Contents are VG+.

        Autograph Postcard Signed to Adila Aranyi, November, 1902

      , 1927. CARDS. Budapest, 1902. 5.5 x 3.75 inch postcard, addressed to Adila Aranyi in Bartok's hand. Autograph postcard from Bartok to the violinist Adila Aranyi dated November 27, 1902 discussing his violin arrangement of Strauss's Don Quixote, 3rd variation. With the following message in Bartok's microscript handwriting (translated from the Hungarian): "In Budapest, on Thursday... I strongly object to the statement that I am the winning party!Anyhow we shall still discuss this tomorrow. Thank you very much for the lovely card. Please do not be overly alarmed by thenumerous Strauss-cards. Be consoled knowing that ? there?s more to come. By the way, I think that the variation of Sancho Panza is not difficult, and so maybe we can rehearse that, too, tomorrow. Greetings till we meet again from B2." The postcard shows a photograph of Verlag von Hofphotograph J. Lowy, Vien, 1902. One of many postcards Bartok wrote to Aranyi during the period of 1902-1905, a period in which, according to Bartok's biographer Benjamin Suchoff, "he had fallen in love with the lively Adila." - Suchoff, Bela Bartok - Life and Work, p. 33. This postcard was written two days after the manuscript postcard of Bartok's Strauss arrangement of Don Quixote, 3rd variation, which now resides at the Pierpont Morgan Library (OCLC 270561619). A wonderful piece of correspondence from early in Bartok's career. About fine condition overall, with some normal age-related tanning. Please contact us for additional pictures or information. . Fine. 1927.

        Autograph Letter, signed ("Aldous Huxley"), to Mr. Rimington, regarding photographic portraits of himself

      Florence, Italy, 1927. 1-1/2 pages in ink, on front and rear of single sheet. 1 vols. 4to. Fine. 1-1/2 pages in ink, on front and rear of single sheet. 1 vols. 4to. " ... the photograph is good ... made by the Steichen Studio" Apologizing for not being able to send a photograph of himself any better than the reproduction of one he has cut out of VANITY FAIR from the previous April, Huxley remarks: "I have been living away from my possessions, I could not get at any old portraits ... I'm sorry I can't do better. But the photograph is good - & if by the way, Doran's should want to use any picture for advertising purposes, I wish they'd use this, which was made by the Steichen Studio, New York, or else an excellent newspaper picture made by the Montauk Photograph Co ... . whose address is, I think, Canal Street, near the wharf."

        Now We Are Six

      London: Methuen & Co. Ltd,, 1927. Octavo. Original red cloth, title to spine gilt, vignette to covers gilt, pink illustrated endpapers, top edge gilt. With the dust jacket. Illustrated throughout by E. H. Shepard. Spine gently rolled and lightly toned, minor rubbing to extremities; an excellent copy in the unusually bright jacket with browned spine and tiny nicks to extremities. First edition, first impression, with the ownership inscription of Marjorie Shepard, Ernest Shepard's niece, on the half-title. Following the success of When We Were Very Young Milne began planning a second book of poetry for children. In a January 1926 letter to his brother Ken he included it as number one in a list of "things which ought to be done": "A book of verses (about 15 done to date) to appear in 1927 or 1928" (Thwaite p. 293). By the time that Winnie-the-Pooh was published in late 1926 half the poems for this third book were already complete. Published on 13 October 1927 in an edition of 50,000 regular trade copies, it took only two months for Now We Are Six to eclipse the sales records of the previous two books. Full of Milne's charming verse, this collection is also notable for including many illustrations of Pooh, Piglet, and the other nursery toys, even when uncalled for by the poems.

        [Photo Album]: Camp Lenape

      Pennsylvania. 1927. Oblong small quarto measuring 8" x 12". String-tied flexible felt wrappers with "LC" stitched to the front wrapper. Contains 88 sepia toned or black and white silver gelatin photographs measuring between 2" x 3" and 3.5" x 6" with some captions. Rubbing and small chips thus very good with near fine photographs.A photo album and scrapbook kept by New York native, Henry L. Priestley ,during the summer of 1927 which he spent at Camp Lenape in Pennsylvania. The camp was on the banks of Fairview Lake which was home to a number of Y.M.C.A. and Scout camps beginning at the turn of the century. Priestley was a part of a boy's camp which spent the summer of 1927 horseback riding, swimming, learning rope tricks, and dressing like cowboys and Indians. The album opens with pages of camp friends listing their name, birthday, address, and a "special thought" about Henry. Some o fht ethoughts include "may you grow to be a great big hero," "the Rough Rider," and "good boy Hank." These are written over two pages, back and front, and contain the names of 54 boys and every space is filled. Another section in the album is a space for "Social Events," which includes a line reading, "had the Lenape Wild West Show, in which I was a settler who helped defend the fort." Another entry reads, "we had Water Sports Day, in which I entered the swimming races and came in last." Priestley also illustrated the album with a few drawings of bull riders and horses. The photographs show the boys at the camp, their cabins, and the surrounding landscape showing the wooded area and lake. The boys are seen basket weaving, fishing, canoeing and a minstrel show which featured young men in blackface. To keep in line with the Native American name of the camp numerous photos show boys in head dresses or cowboy outfits and counselors dressed similarly including one captioned "Chief Owaneco." Another pastime of the camp was shooting and a photo shows boys laying on their belly participating in target practice. A nice collection of photographs depicting a boy's camp in the 1920s. .
