        Peace in Our Time: Addresses on Europe and the Empire [ Stated First Edition, Inscribed and Signed by Austen Chamberlain ]

      Philip Allan & Co. Ltd., London 1928 - A very good copy of the stated first (1928) hard cover edition, lacking a dust-jacket. Inscribed and signed on the front free edpaper: "To Evan Morgan / With all good wishes / from / Austen Chamberlain / Cardiff / Nov. 28th 1930." Evan [Frederic] Morgan was the 2nd Viscount Tredegar (1893 - 1949), a noted eccentric. The text of the book is wholly unmarked, pristine, and the green cloth with gilt lettering on the spine is remarkably bright and fresh in appearance. There is a bit of foxing/age-toning to the endpapers, the first few/last pages, and the page edges of the volume: unobtrusive. The book came to us from the library of a late local scholar of the world peace movements, and has a Highgate Auctions card laid in, which may indicate how he obtained this and other rare items from this period. A beautiful copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Southern Pacific Lines follow the trails blazed by the pioneers. The pioneers chose the best natural routes. The routes today offer not only great natural geographic advantages for the flow of travel and commerce but also inspiring traditions...

      Southern Pacific.. Copyright 1928.. Color pictographic / pictorial map, 23 1/4 x 32 inches on sheet size 25 1/4 x 33 1/4 inches. Centerfold, some soft creases from rolling, some light soiling and light dampstaining (only visible in outer margins). An uncommon and visually appealing map poster "done in the old style" with decorative galleons and sea monsters and an elaborate compass rose. Southern Pacific's Shasta Route, Overland Route, Golden State Route and Sunset Route are marked, "following the trails of the pioneers, they are the best natural routes to the land of scenery and romance." The left and right borders are composed of vignette illustrations of historical events starting with "1862 President Lincoln signs Pacific Railway Act" to "Today Southern Pacific still building and serving." Four vignette illustrations along the upper edge relate to the four routes. The railroad runs as far south as Mexico City. David Rumsey attributes the map design to J.E.Patterson of Patterson & Sullivan, a San Francisco art firm. WorldCat shows four library listings in the United States. .

It fills the gap of two years in her letters and also sets out the reasons for the fascination which that romantic part of the world always had for her. It is a book full of charm and shrewd observation.' Cloth boards in excellent condition, with limited signs of wear, one faint mark to rear board, all corners bumped, endcaps very slightly pushed, gilt lettering is a little dulled, top edge gilt, fore edge shows spotting, personal stamp of Sir Percy Cox, one of the major figures in the creation of Iraq, attractively mounted to pastedown. Text block very clean throughout, excepting some minor browning toward very first and final few leaves. Inscription reads, 'To Sir Percy Cox, With much gratitude. Florence Bell, 1928'. Dustjacket in like condition, with some dustiness, discolouration at spine, darkened along creases, with some negligible chips (primarily at spine), flaps very clean. An excellent copy. The book's ownership has imparted it with a fascinating legacy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Om djur och om människan i djurvärlden.

      Huvudsakligen om en liten och inställsam rovlysten, om det skydd den får hos människorna, om kelandet med den. Av ICN. Ny, översedd och något tillökad upplaga. Stockholm, O. L. Svanbäcks boktryckeri, 1928. 90 s. Häftad. Ryggen blekt. Preliminärbladen och främre omslagets insida missfärgade av tidningsurklipp. Författarnamnet prydligt textat på ryggen respektive titelbladet. Ägarsignatur på smutstitelbladets baksida.. Andra upplagan, som omedelbart makulerades av författaren. Om de olika upplagorna av denna bok skriver Gustaf-Otto Adelborg att "Conradson, som var till ytterlighet självkritisk och noga övervägde varje faktum, ord och formulering, tyckte emellertid, att denna första upplaga hade vissa brister, och lät inom kort draga in den i och för makulering. En andra 'ny, översedd och något tillökad upplaga', omfattande 90 sidor trycktes 1928, men makulerades omedelbart. Mot slutet av 1928 trycktes så (i 500 ex.) 'ny, översedd och ytterligare tillökad upplaga', som med sina 110 sidor tillsvidare blev den slutgiltiga." Boken är en moraliserande genomgång av djurs egenskaper. Framförallt behandlas katten, som beskrivs med ett oreserverat äckel och ett till det psykotiska gränsande hat. "Hur den ser ut! En blandning av sliskighet och rovlystnad, ett ohyggligare uttryck än den vilda mordlusten. [...] Ett inställsamt, sliskigt pinoredskap [...] en blick med endast ondskans liv. Hur lömsk den ter sig." "Hur vederstygglig den är skapad. Vilken vidrig eld i ögonen, de brinna, där den färdas tyst som en skugga". "Och vad är det för slags känsloliv som trivs med katten? Det är för lågt känsloliv." En av sina få tillskyndare fann boken i ovan nämnda Adelborg, själv katthatare av rang. Han skrev långt och välvilligt om boken i "Social-demokraten" 1927, och sedan ännu längre när den tredje upplagan kommit ut, en artikel som publicerades först i hans bok "Redogörelser och utredningar" 1952. "Man behöver inte läsa många rader i den skrift, som här refereras till", menar Adelborg där, "för att finna, hur fri från fördomar dess författare är, hur höjd över fåfänga spekulationer och blöt sentimentalitet. Författaren är saklig utan att vara torr, han är skarpsinnig och tydlig, men tillika så uppenbart varmhjärtad och så livlig, frisk och naturlig i sin skildringskonst, att framställningen blir sällsynt gripande och övertygande." Adelborgs djupa sympati för Conradssons bok kom också att leda till en slutgiltig brytning mellan honom och kattägaren Vilhelm Ekelund. "Det är egentligen blott två svenska moderna författare som djupt fängslat mig" skriver han i "BLM" 1952, "Vilhelm Ekelund och Ivar Conradson. Redan från början skattade jag dock Conradson högre [...]. Det stod genast klart för mig, att detta var en märklig skrift, av största betydelse för en klar, rättvis uppfattning av livets fenomen". Adelborg sände boken och sin recension till Ekelund och ansåg sig "ha all rätt att vänta, att han skulle tydligt visa sig förstå och erkänna vad boken gällde och betydde." Istället skickade Ekelund en månad senare en kort lustifikation. "En förolämpning utan gräns" enligt Adelborg, och därmed var bollen satt i rullning som skulle leda till slutet för deras vänskap

        LEST YE DIE: A STORY FROM THE PAST OR OF THE FUTURE.

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1928 - Octavo, pp. [i-vi] vii-xi [xii-xiv] 1-281 [282: blank], original green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in brown, fore-edge untrimmed. First U.S. edition. One of the more important scientific romances of the 1920s, being a rewritten and retitled version of THEODORE SAVAGE: A STORY OF THE PAST OR THE FUTURE (1922). This catastrophe novel ". bitterly depicts a future war in whose aftermath the people of the UK, driven out of the cities, revert to superstitious barbarism. The ironically named protagonist lives to a great age in a small village full of savages who think of pre- collapse artifacts as obscene. Hamilton is one of the first - - and among the darkest -- of those UK novelists whose vision of things was shaped by WWI, which they saw as foretelling the end of civilization." - Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (1993), pp. 537-38.

Auflage des Meyer-Lexikons verglichen. Darüber hinaus kann sie als detaillierter Zeitspiegel der Weimarer Republik gelten. Trotz des hohen Lobes von lexikographischer Seite wird diese Auflage in ihrer Bedeutung oft unterschätzt. Alle Bände in sehr gutem Zustand, kaum berieben oder bestoßen. Deckelleinen im Wesentlichen sauber, allenfalls partiel mit leichten Fingerspuren. Seiten frisch und fleckenfrei. Das ausfaltbare Modell des Menschen im 12. Band vorhanden.

        LIVES OF THE NOBLE GRECIANS AND ROMANES, Compared Together by that Grave and Learned Philosopher & Historiographer, Plutarke of Chæronea: Translated out of Greek in to French by James Amyot.and out of French into Englishe by Thomas North

      Stratford-Upon-Avon The Shakespeare Head Press for Basil Blackwell 1928 - 8 volumes. FIRST SHAKESPEARE HEAD PRINTING, A LIMITED EDITION, and one of only 500 copies for sale, numbered by hand in Vol. I. Decorations throughout consisting of portraits within headpieces by Thomas Lowinsky. Large 8vo, publisher's original black cloth, the spines with gilt ruled bands as those on a leather binding, gilt lettering in three compartments, t.e.g. A very handsome, as pristine set in unusually fine condition, quite beautifully preserved, prelims with only a touch of the usual spotting and not even really worth mentioning. The cloth is vivid dark black with bright gilt. Volume I with the Observer Sunday review for the edition dated November 11, 1928 neatly tipped to the front endleaves, and with the 1928 owner's neat calligraphed signature and bookplates to the free-fly. A superb set rarely found is such beautiful conditon. RARE FIRST EDITION, LIMITED ISSUE OF THE SHAKESPEARE HEAD PLUTARCH, ONE OF ONLY 500 COPIES SIGNED FOR SALE. This edition was printed from the first edition of 1579. Lowinsky's portrait head-pieces are taken so far as possible from authentic originals. A handsomely printed set of North's classic translation. In this monumental historical work, Plutarch relates the lives of the historically important Greeks and Romans of ancient times. His studies are revered as among the most important and beautiful of all classical writings . The author’s object is to bring out the moral character in each case, rather than to relate the political events of the time; in essence, at times he will distort the truth in order to exemplify virtue or vice. Nonetheless, he is as reliable as the sources he uses, and very valuable as a historical resource. Thomas North’s translation of Plutarch’s LIVES is one of the most famous. His prose considered by many to be "incomparable. [his] achievement in narrative prose is only less signal than Shakespeare's in dramatic verse. North's Plutarch is also well-known as a primary source for the plots of Shakespeare's classical plays and for numerous passages in the non-Roman ones, and he relied almost exclusively on it for the historical background of ancient Rome. Thus it is a very fitting work for the Shakespeare Head Press to have undertaken at Stratford-Upon-Avon. Of this edition perhaps the contemporary review from the Observer sums it up best- "In its stately form and completeness of contents this edition stands alone in our generation. The posthumous vicissitudes of North's genius amongst the publishers make a singular episode in our bibliographical history. Mr. Blackwell gives us a great deal more of North than has been available to the general reader since Pepys's time." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Rose cloth, 4 vol. set: vol. 1-2 text,. vol. 3 plates & plans, vol. 4 maps, bibliography, unclipped. mended dust jackets in mylar protectors, 25.5 x 34 cm.,. brillantly bright superb clean copy. FIRST & ONLY EDITION. AUTHOR'S SIGNED FIRST & ONLY LIMITED EDITION OF 765 COPIES . FIRST & ONLY LIMITED EDITION OF 765 SETS ** A monumental work, well illustrated study on the trade route countries of Central Asia. Always a rare set when complete. * "With descriptive lists of antiques by F.H. Andrews & F.M.G. Lorimer; & appendices by J. Allan et al." Volume 1, 2: text, 1159 pages, with text illustrations. Vol. 3: 137 plates, 59 plans. Vol. 4: 51 color folding maps in matching rose cloth case, with index tabs. ******* M. AUREL STEINS PERSONAL COPY: This is a very nice copy which was likely owned by the author as hia personal letter was found used as a book mark in one of the volumes. The letter is 19 x 25.5 cm., plain toned white paper, written by Sir Aurel Stein using a very wide fountain pen and blue ink. The letter is in remarkable condition and has been folded twice, but now is quite flat and solid. * WITH A VERY RARE HOLOGRAPHIC LETTER FROM AUREL STEIN: "At Highbroom, Ewhurst, Guilford: February 15, 1925 Dear Sirs, Thanks for your letter of the 9th inst. and the account rendered with it. I note in the account of entry of 10/6 charged for the Return of Income Tax for the years 1922-3 and 1923-4. As I was absent from the United Kingdom during the whole of these financial years, no Income Tax was due from the royalties received in these years on my behalf. I accordingly request the favour of an explanation as to how this charge arises against my account, and hope for a refund of the amount. Yours faithfully A. Stein" * Perhaps Aurel Stein got his reply from the Income Tax office and or this was a copy of his letter. It was found lost as a "book mark" found in this set. A lovely insight to Stein, and his thoughts on how the British government had wrongly charged him Income Tax. A lovely holographic letter, written in pen and ink, in his usual and steady hand. Stein letters are rare and seldom found on the market. ******** FIRST & ONLY LIMITED EDITION OF 765 COPIES. We understand that this set was issued in a Limited Edition of only 765 complete copies, the balance of 250 sets were incomplete as they lacked 48 maps. * THE MAPS AND MAP BOX VOLUME: The matching map box is also in bound in rose cloth, 25.5 x 34 cm., and is 5 cm. thick. There is some minor and usual wear to the upper and lower part of the hinged flap, with some old mends. The contents consist of 47 maps each with white index tabs, plus 4 other maps index tabs: "A,B,C,D," and the index, complete as issued. **** CONDITION: This is the brightest and freshest copy we have ever had in our 45 years of tenure. The cloth of the main three volumes is nearly flawless, with bright rose color, brilliant gold stamping on the spines and front covers. There is no scuffing whatsoever, and the head/tails of the spines are fresh with a few of the usual wrinkles expected. The joints are strong, tight and the book appears to be by and large unused. There are a few bumped corners: vol. 1: the front upper right corner has a very small bump; vol. 2: faint and very tiny hint of a bump on front lower right, else none; vol. 3: front right and left, and rear corners tiny bump, front lower right a larger bump, please see scans posted to our website for photographs. * DUST JACKETS: The set of three volumes all have the original dust jackets each protected in mylar covers. There was some of the usual wear to the unprotected dust jackets, and some restoration with matching paper was performed from the inside to stabilize the tears and small missing pieces. Overall the jackets are nice with some repairs to the upper and lower spine as well as corners and a few other spots here and there. Finding this set with the dust jacket is exceptionally rare and unusual. The set if ever found most always lacks the dust jackets. *** . * BIBLIOGRAPHY: Stein 1862-1943.

        Eduard Arnhold. Ein Gedenkbuch * H A L B L E D E R - H A N D E I N B A N D , mit signierter Original-Graphik von Emil Orlik

      Berlin, Selbstverlag, 1928 - Vollständige Ausgabe in elegantem Handeinband der Zeit: brauner Halblederband (Halbleder / HLdr im Format 19 x 26 cm), auf schwarzem Lederschildchen der Rückentitel in Goldprägung, 5 leicht erhabene Zierbünde, Liniendekoration des Lederbezugs in Blindprägung, Lederecken, Zeichenband und Schmuckvorsätze aus farbigem Handmarmorpapier und Kopfgoldschnitt. 318 Seiten, mit signierter Original-Graphik von Emil Orlik (Radierung) als Frontispiz-Abbildung, 4 Tafeln (mit Seidenhemdchen) und einem Handschrift-Faksimile. Nicht im Handel erschienener Privatdruck! - Aus dem Inhalt: Die Persönlichkeit - Der Mann des öffentlichen Lebens - Arnhold und die Kohlenwirtschaft - Arnold und das Verkehrswesen - Arnhold und die Industrie - Arnhold und das Bankwesen - Arnhold und die Wissenschaft - Arnhold und die Kunst - Arnhold und die Karitas - Gedächtnisrede Adolf von Harnacks bei der Trauerfeier für Eduard Arnhold - Personenregister - Sachregister - Verzeichnis der Beilagen. - "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können." Aus einem alten Prospekt von Richard Hönn, ehemals Handbinderei des Verlages Albert Langen, Werkstatt für feine Buchbinder- und Lederarbeiten in München, Dienerstrasse 14. - Eduard Arnhold (1849 Dessau - Neuhaus am Schliersee) war ein Berliner Unternehmer, Kunstmäzen und Philanthrop. In der Gründerzeit ab 1871gelang ihm der unternehmerische Aufstieg in die ersten Kreise Berlins, indem er fast den gesamten Handel mit schlesischer Steinkohle am Berliner Markt in seine Hand brachte. Kaiser Wilhelm II. berief ihn 1913 als ersten und einzigen Juden ins Preußische Herrenhaus. Den ihm gleichfalls angebotenen Adel lehnte Arnhold hingegen ab. Den gewonnenen persönlichen Reichtum investierte der begeisterte Kunstsammler größtenteils in Kunst und Künstler, von denen viele zu seinem Freundeskreis gehörten, u. a. Max Liebermann, Arnold Böcklin, Adolph Menzel und der Bildhauer Louis Tuaillon. So war er gleichzeitig auch der größte bürgerliche Kunstmäzen Berlins in seiner Zeit und stiftete dem preußischen Staat 1913 die Villa Massimo in Rom als Kulturinstitut (WIKIPEDIA) - Deutsches Judentum im 19./20. Jahrhundert, signiertes Exemplar, 1.Weltkrieg, Halblederband, deutsche Kunstbuchbinderei, Berliner Kunstsammler und Kunstmäzen, Kaufmann, Kohlenwirtschaft, illustrierte Bücher, Oderschifffahrt, Schlesische Schifffahrt, Schifffahrtswege in Schlesien, schlesisches Verkehrswesen, oberschlesisches Kleinbahnwesen, monarchisch gesinnter jüdischer Industriekapitän und Großkaufmann. - Erstausgabe, EA 1.Auflage in sehr guter Erhaltung, beiliegend schwarzumränderte Visitenkarte von Frau Eduard Arnold. - De [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
