        CROWD, THE (1928)

      MGM 1928 - Vintage original 22 x 14" (55 x 35 cm.) window card poster, USA. Eleanor Boardman, James Murray, Bert Roach, Estelle Clark, dir: King Vidor; MGM. One of the finest silent films ever made. Director King Vidor's masterpiece. This was Vidor's pet project, an early example of a director's picture within the studio system. Irving Thalberg gave him the green light, as he had made many moneymaking films for MGM. The studio felt it would not make money, but in the end it made double what it cost and was nominated for two Academy Awards (for Dramatic Film and Director) in what would turn out to be the first Academy Awards presentation (SUNRISE would win in this category). The story of a young couple in New York City who marry and have children and meet with human tragedy (the loss of a child, the loss of a job, the breaking of a marriage) -- the story of the everyman, of the everyday person getting lost in the crowd. It is difficult to find any material on this title. Card has been cleaned and backed. Tears and cracks around the blank credit box have been addressed and touched-up. Areas in the blank background and in the black of the art area where pinholes and tears occurred have been touched-up. A vertical crease of tear about 3" (8 cm.) in from the right side going through the title art and into the head of the male character has been touched-up. A few areas along the edges have been touched-up. Displays clean and beautiful. VERY GOOD

        Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám, The

      London: Robt. Riviére & Son., Ltd., 1928. An Exceptionally Fine Rivière Rubaiyat With Twelve Hand-Colored Illustrations by Gilbert James [RIVIÈRE & Son, binders]. The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám. Translated by Edward Fitzgerald. Illustrated by Gilbert James. London: Robt. Riviére & Son., Ltd., 1928. "This special edition of the Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám, with twelve hand-coloured illustrations, is printed in Caslon Old Face type on Studio hand-made paper." Octavo (8 x 5 3/8 inches; 204 x 137 mm.). [ii, blank], [iii-xii], 75, [1, imprint] pp. With twelve illustrations by Gilbert James hand-colored and heightened with gold, and printed with blue initials for each stanza.  Bound ca. 1928 by Rivière & Son (stamp-signed on front turn-in) in full brown crushed levant morocco. Front cover with a central oval panel with an onlaid green-spotted serpent twining around a large gilt chalice. This central panel is surrounded by a floral border of inlaid green flowers on purple stems with bunches of grapes. Inside a double-ruled gilt border on each cover is stanza number fifty-eight "Oh, Thou, who Man of baser Earth didst make, And who with Eden didst devise the Snake: For all the Sin wherewith the Face of Man Is blacken'd, Man's Forgiveness give - and take." Rear cover with a similar oval panel also surrounded by a floral border of inlaid green flowers on purple stems with bunches of grapes, and with a single onlaid green flower and a central inlaid bunch of grapes. Spine with five raised bands decoratively bordered in gilt with inlaid purple morocco bunches of grapes in five of the panels and gilt lettered in the other, double gilt ruled board edges, elaborate gilt turn-ins, also featuring the grapevine motif, marbled paper doublures and endleaves, all edges gilt. A fine example of a late twenties Rivière 'Inlaid' binding. A similar binding (but without the quotations on the borders of both covers) was sold in the Chevalier sale at Christie's New York, Friday November 9th, 1990, lot 63. We actually sold that copy to Paul Chevalier and then later to another private collector. Loosely inserted in the Chevalier copy was a pencilled note, identified by a second description as being in the hand of George Napier, an Edinburgh collector who commissioned a number of bindings. Napier explains his purchase of the book from Rivière in 1932 and that he commissioned  the special border now decorating the book. He adds that "George" at Rivière's explained that the chalice and serpent motif was designed by Alberto Sangorski, brother of George Sangorski the binder, and concludes with the mention of the "Great Omar", which sank with the Titanic. First published in 1859, Edward FitzGerald's version of Omar Khayyam's quatrains was widely read only after it was taken up by the Pre-Raphaelites in 1861. The height of the poem's popularity corresponded with the heyday of the illustrated book, and such well-known illustrators as Willy Pogany, Edmund Dulac, René Bull, Gilbert James, and Frank Brangwyn received commissions to illustrate the poem. Gilbert JAMES (1865-1941) was one of the earliest and most prolific of the artists to take up the challenge of providing illustrations for FitzGerald's verses and his work was reprinted many times in different forms during the twentieth century.

Yet on that particular Armistice Day, the question of his death was to prove vital in a matter of inheritance, and Lord Peter Wimsey finds that there are nagging questions about just exactly how and when the old man met his death. In his investigation, Wimsey uncovers the suspicious matter of a will that, depending upon who has died first, stands to benefit a number of people, thereby creating a motive for murder."</b></font><br><br> Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile.

This copy Class 1b, with a rough-trimmed fore-edge and untrimmed lower edge. Fabes notes that a "copy which conforms to either of these forms [i.e., Class 1a or 1b] is a first issue of the book, irrespective of the presence or absence of misprints" (p 54); the dropped "o" on p 365, present in our copy, is simply "due to imperfections in the type metal" (53). Keynes also notes that "typographical irregularities have no significance whatsoever" in determining first and second issue. A classic of English literature, somewhat scarce in the trade in a complete dust jacket.

      The First UK Printing published by Duckworth in 1928. The BOOK is in Very Good++ or better condition. Original Blue cloth has a little rubbing at the corners. Gilt titling remains very bright. Light toning to the text block with a little spotting to the prelims. Pages remain clean. Free from erasures and inscriptions. The WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good++ or better condition. A little toned to the spine with mild edge wear with a little loss to the lower front edge and spine ends. A few professional Japanese tissue paper repairs to the verso. The coloured designs to the covers remain very bright. Mild vertical crease to the spine. The wrapper looks very striking in the removable Brodart archival cover. One of Byron's earliest titles with a frontispiece of Simopetra and 32 further B/W photographic illustrations, mainly by the author. In a 1984 reprint of The Station, John Julius Norwich, himself a life-long traveller, writes in a very erudite Introduction : 'No better portrait of the Holy Mountain exists than this, written as it was nearly sixty years ago; nor is it likely to be surpassed in the future. Here, in short, is a classic. And a classic it will remain. What higher praise than this can be gained by someone who was only twenty-two when he wrote the book. Robert Byron changed the English-speaking world's view of Byzantine art and culture through 'The Station' and 'The Byzantine Achievement', published the year after. This book is therefore more than a travel book and more than a study of the monastic society of Mount Athos. It is also a historical enquiry into the civilization of Byzantium seen in its only surviving manifestation. With typical Byzantine complexity the obscure title of the book is only explained in the last sentence : 'This is the Holy Mountain Athos, station of a faith where all the years have stopped'.' Byron was to go on to write his classic title 'The Road To Oxiana' in 1937 before being tragically killed aged 35 in 1941 after his ship, the 'SS Jonathan Holt', was torpedoed by U-97 a submarine in the North Atlantic. His body was never found. A very sharp title and scarce title to find with such attributes.

        Selection of Books, Manuscripts, Engravings and Autograph Letters Remarkable for their Interest & Rarity...

      London: Maggs Bros., 1928. Hard Cover. [x], 356 p., facsimiles (some color), 224 plates; 33.5 cm.; 224 items, arranged alphabetically; priced. Title continues: Being the Five Hundredth Catalogue Issued by Maggs Bros., Booksellers." Maggs celebrated its 500th catalog with bibliographical fireworks, displaying the wide range of their riches from illuminated manuscripts to a Napoleon letter to the first Greek Aristotle (1495-98) plus 19 Americana. When I obtained this there was beginning the damage typical of such a large and heavy book. I had it repaired and bound in a red leather spine with gilt decoration to encase appropriately such a magnificent publication. Stock#OB1030.
