        Book of Catherine Wells

      1928. First Edition . Signed. WELLS, H.G. The Book of Catherine Wells. With an Introduction by her Husband H.G. Wells. London: Chatto & Windus, 1928. Octavo, contemporary full green morocco gilt, raised bands, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, uncut. $1850.First edition of H.G. Wells' ""deeply moving"" tribute to his wife, inscribed by him on the half title to his close friend and advisor Richard Arman Gregory, ""RAGs. Old friend from H.G."" Handsomely bound by Zaehnsdorf.""'Jane' Wells (Amy Catherine Robbins) died in 1927, and this deeply moving work, containing a number of her own notes and jottings, is Wells's tribute in her memory. 'Gentle, faithful, wise and self-forgetful, she was the maker of a kind and free and hospitable home…' A seven-page booklet, In Memory of Amy Catherine Wells (Jane Wells), was printed privately in 1927 and consists of the funeral address 'read for Mr. Wells by Dr. T.E. Page'"" (H.G. Wells Society 104). That pamphlet is laid into this copy. With four tipped-in photographic plates. Hammond K28. Not in Currey. Inscribed to noted British scientist and Wells' lifelong friend Sir Richard Arman Gregory. In Wells' first work of fiction, he dedicated the work to Gregory as his ""dearest friend."" The two met while students at the Normal School of Science in South Kensington. They jointly authored a textbook, Honours Physiography, in 1891. Reportedly, Gregory was the one person with whom Wells never quarreled. A professor of astronomy, Gregory also possessed expertise in physics, chemistry and other disciplines; he wrote several textbooks and eventually assumed the editorship of the journal Nature, to which Wells frequently contributed. The author often turned to Gregory, and to the experts Gregory contacted on Wells' behalf, for insight and encouragement when writing his famous ""scientific romances."" After Wells' death, Gregory worked to establish the H.G. Wells Memorial to preserve public attention to his friend's body of work. Throughout his life Gregory was a passionate advocate for science—""It is necessary to believe in the holiness of scientific work,"" he once declared—and ""an optimist about man's future"" (Horrabin, in New Scientist, April 11, 1957).Interior fine, toning to spine of morocco-gilt binding. A near-fine inscribed copy.

Folio, 24 folders with descriptive text containing 39 leaves (1 scroll leaf in separate box), housed in original cloth box. $11,000.First edition of this classic Foliophiles leaf book, number 1 of only 45 copies, with 39 individual leaves from the 12th to the 19th centuries, representing all the major Asian writing systems.""In its usual form, a leaf book contains an original leaf from a significant manuscript or printed book, accompanied by an essay written by a knowledgeable, or at least prominent, author… Although many private collectors tipped in leaves from other books as part of the process of 'extra-illustration,' these individually created books are not considered to be leaf books.

Reading about a book can be educational and rewarding, but seeing and handling the book—whether the complete object, or a single leaf extracted from it—is a completely different, and potentially much richer, experience. A belief in the power of the original object has been one of the main motivations for the production of leaf books ever since… The book collecting boom of the 1920s brought with it significantly increased production of leaf books of all kinds… Organizations such as the Society of Foliophiles created and marketed several different portfolios of leaves, including Specimens of Oriental Mss. and Printing (1928)"" (Silver). In his brief introduction, Brown notes: ""The Oriental manuscripts and printed books represented in this portfolio are fairly representative of the progress of the art of writing, and to a lesser degree of printing, throughout Asia. In my comments attached to these examples there has been an attempt to describe the development of the various languages represented."" The collection consists of 24 folders and 1 box, containing a total of 39 individual leaves: 1.Nestorian Syriac manuscript (16th-century book of prayers, worming to margins) and printed leaf from a New Testament in Syriac (1843). 2.Armenian manuscript (catechism and book of prayers, 1741) and printed leaf from an Armenian book of rituals (1831). 3.Arabic manuscript in Cufic characters (12th-century Koran). 4.Arabic manuscript (15th-century book of devotions) and modern Arabic manuscript (Koran). 5.Arabic manuscript (17th-century Koran, probably Egyptian, light worming to margins) and printed leaf from an Arabic book (1833 work of French authorship on health and hygiene).6.Arabic manuscript written in Persia (early 19th-century suras). 7.Turkish manuscript (late 18th-century book of travels with miniature view of Mecca on verso) and printed leaf from a Turkish dictionary (1841). 8.Persian manuscript (biographies of noted Sufis, 1478, worming and edge restoration). 9.Persian manuscript (the Gulistan of Sa'di, 1563) and printed leaf from a Persian textbook (1827). 10.Persian manuscript (the Shahnama of Firdausi, 17th century) and Persian manuscript (the Kamsah of Nizami, 17th century). 11.Persian manuscript with miniature (1520, edge restoration). 12.Kashmir manuscript in Persian (1848). 13.Sanskrit manuscript (end of 18th century) and printed leaf from a New Testament in Sanskrit (1844). 14.Sanskrit manuscript (18th-century puranas) and illuminated Sanskrit manuscript (early 19th-century Mahabarata). 15.Rajput miniature painting (early 19th-century Mahabarata). 16.Hindi manuscript (the Chronicles of Rajputana, 1839) and printed leaf from Sakuntala in Hindi (1876). 17.Tibetan Buddist manuscript (1662-1722; scroll manuscript in separate box). 18.Mongol manuscript (late 17th-/early 18th-century Buddhist text, embrowning of edges). 19.Burmese palm leaf manuscript (18th century) and Sinhalese palm leaf manuscript (18th century). 20.Siamese manuscript (alphabet and spelling book handwritten by the second king of Siam, early 19th century). 21.Javanese manuscript (19th-century history of the Indian god Rama). 22.Chinese rubbing (scholar Tung Chung-Shu, 1827). 23.Chinese block printing (17th-century Buddhist work) and Japanese block printing (Buddhist charm, 770, worming to margins). 24.Japanese Buddhist manuscript (Ise Monogatari, 1395, worming affecting text) and Japanese manuscript (17th-century Ise Monogatari). 25.Japanese color print by Hokusai (1802, extensive worming affecting images) and modern Japanese illustration (text on hawks and hawking).

      Ca. 1928-1930. Forty-nine loose gelatin silver prints from ca. 13x18 cm (5 ¼ x 7 in) to ca. 10,5x16 cm (4 ¼ x 6 ¼ in). Seven photos captioned and/or numbered in Russian on verso. A couple of photos with minor small corners creases, one with a corner chip, but overall a very good collection. Interesting collection of early vivid photo views and scenes of Soviet Turkmenistan taken a few years after it had become a part of the Soviet Union (1924). The images were taken by talented Tashkent photographer Ivan Panov who worked for the State Art Publishing House in Moscow (Izogiz). Many of Panov's views of Central Asian cities and landscapes, as well as portraits of local people were printed as postcards by the Izogiz in the 1930s (he is known for his views of Tashkent, Lake Issyk-Kul in Kyrgyzstan, Chelyabinsk, Moscow, Black Sea resorts and others). The collection includes over twenty views of Ashgabat taken before the city was heavily destroyed during the 1948 earthquake. The images show the Baha'i temple (first in the world, constructed in 1908, demolished in 1963), monument to V. Lenin (finished in 1927), Turkmen Institute of Culture (decorated with the sculptures of Reading Turkmens - a man and a woman), Turkmen State Museum, Polytechnic school, Ashgabat Central Committee of the Communist Party, the storefront of the Ashgabat branch of the State Publishing House (Gosizdat), railway station, covered galleries of the city market, building of the textile factory (constructed in 1924), three views of Ashgabat water tower built after a project by V. Shukhov, Ashgabat state theatre of Russian drama, cinema theatre, and others. There are also interesting views of a Turkmen aul (village) near Kyzyl-Arvat (now Serdar, north-west of Ashgabat); boats and boats men on the Amu Darya River at Chardzhou (now Turkmenabad); a market and a camel caravan at rest in Mary (an oasis in the Karakum Desert). Over a dozen portraits depict the Turkmen people at a market (selling watermelons, sheep, harnesses); local families outside or inside their yurts, children, camel drovers, and others. Overall an interesting collection of vivid views of first Soviet years in Turkmenistan.

        Original Drawing Signed with initials, with dedication in Cyrillic, rendered in colored pencil, 8vo, n,p., Nov.. 2, 1941

      This is a suggestively erotic drawing, more subtle than is typical for Eisenstein's erotic drawings probably because of the age of the boy to whom he dedicated the picture. Eisenstein drew a female elephant wearing earrings cavorting with a male crocodile. In the background is a palm tree, in the foreground a shore line. He dedicates his bold, fantastical red and blue pencil drawing to Duglas Aleaxandrov, son of Soviet film maker Gregori Aleksandrov. Duglas was named after American actor Douglas Fairbanks. Eisenstein traveled with Aleksandrov to the United States and to Mexico in 1928. In the lower right, he writes in Cyrillic, "To My Friend Dug 2.11.41." On verso of the drawing is part of a print which was cut to make this smaller 8.75 x 6 inch sheet on which Eisenstein crafted this sketch for his friend's son. Eisenstein is rare in any form and especially with film association. Eisenstein drew this colorful sketch at the outset of war between Germany and the Soviet Union in 1941 . It was also the year "Nevsky" was rereleased to huge acclaim. Eisenstein and other artists were evacuated to Almaty (formerly Alma-Ata), Kazakhstan, and most stayed from 1941 to 1944.

      Paris: Au Sans Pareil, Rene Hilsum & Cie, 1928. A binding of particular joy to Bonet who believed it to be his first truly satisfactory work, terming it a "relieure heureuse. No. 12 of only 27 copies printed on velin de cuve and reserved for the Amis du Sans Pareil, this copy extra-illustrated with 12 proofs, one signed, 7 unpublished plate and the original propsectus boudn at the back. 33 plates by 33 artists including Laboureur, Charles Laborde, Marie Laurencin, J.G. Daragnes, A. Alexeieff, Andre Dignimont, Louis Jou, Constant le Breton and Frans Masereel. Some wood engravings printed in two colours, one coloured by pochoir and the remainder in black and white. In a remarkable binding designed by Paul Bonet, bound by Ferdinand Giraldon and finished between October 1929 and April 1930 of light brown crushed levant morocco, upper cover inlaid with semi-circular inlays of shades of brown morocco outlined in blind and platinum forming concentric circles, intersected by two cones of curved platinum fillets, lettered in black with the titles of the ten Contes of Perrault, blue morocco doublures with cascades of variously sized inlaid and tooled stars and dots, blue watered-silk endpapers, platinum top edge, decorated morocco backed chemise to match the spine of the binding in the original morocco edges slipcase. Signed on front turn-in. A very fine Art Deco binding by Paul Bonet fro the tercentenary edition of Perrault's tales called "L'Edition des 33 graveurs". Bonte considered that this binding held a pivotal and unique position in the development of his work. In his Carnets he describes it as a 'relieure heureuse' or happy binding and adds that it was the first that was satisfactory to him from a technical point of view. The binding appears to have been executed for R.Marty, his main patron between 1926 and 1929, but was not completed in time to be included in Auguste Blaizot's sale of Marty's collection in 1930.

        ORIGINAL 1928 PHOTOGRAPH: "SHERLOCK HOLMES AUTHOR POSES IN PSYCHIC MUSEUM"

      London, 1928. Doyle, A(rthur) Conan. ORIGINAL 1928 PHOTOGRAPH: "SHERLOCK HOLMES AUTHOR POSES IN PSYCHIC MUSEUM." London: Associated Press, (November 17th, 1928). Original vintage 8" by 10" gelatin silver print of Arthur Conan Doyle as he poses with his collection of items on display at his Psychic Museum which he established in close proximity to Westminster Abbey. Photographic images of Doyle, especially in this delicious context, are exceedingly uncommon. On the reverse of the photo are the AP's copyright stamp, date stamp, and a wonderful original press snipe with the following observation:" Sire Arthur Conan Doyle, famous creator of Sherlock Holmes and one of the world's greatest supporters of spiritualism, visualizes a virtually crimeless world as the result of the activities of the clairvoyant detectives who will be in attendance in every police station." Wonderful stuff! The photograph shows moderate handling wear with a few tiny nicks and creases to the borders but is otherwise in Very Good condition. PLEASE NOTE: the Lakin & Marley watermark is NOT on the actual photo, it's there in this specific case to discourage this rare image from being stolen and re-used by internet scoundrels. . Unbound. Very Good. Photograph.
