      Large 4°, 8 text pages with illustrations within text and with two full-page lithographs (Very Good, slightly age-toned and fragile, edges with small tears and loss of paper, slightly stained in the upper part). - Baku, Azerbaijan: 1930. An edition of a rare legendary eight-page Azerbaijani satirical political illustrated magazine in Azari, Russian and Turkic language, published in Baku, Azerbaijan, in 1930. - This is a rare surviving example of the Molla Nasraddin magazine, published between 1906-1931 for the Arabic, as well as partly Russian and Turkish readers. The name was inspired by the 13th century Muslim cleric Nasreddin, who is known for his funny stories and anecdotes. The magazine, illustrated by contemporary famous illustrators, in a style of Honoré Daumier or Toulouse-Lautrec, but with Arabic humour, depicted satirically various social phænomena, such as inequality, cultural assimilation, and corruption. The magazine was published in Tiflis (from 1906 to 1917), Tabriz (in 1921) and Baku (from 1922 to 1931) by the Azerbaijani editor Jalil Huseyngulu oglu Mammadguluzaden (1866-1932). Because of the historical events in the region, as well of a fragile paper, the magazine was printed on, the survival rate of such publications is very rare. In 2011 an exhibition, accompanied by a publication Molla Nasreddin: The Magazine that Would&#146;ve, Could&#146;ve, Should&#146;ve, was dedicated to this magazine.

        History of the Peloponnesian War

      Chelsea : Ashendene Press, 1930. full cream vellum, spine with seven raised bands, lettered in gilt. Vellum a little toned, very slight rubbing at corners and joints, interior pristine. Folio. With Philip C. Duschnes bookseller label on rear pastedown The History of the Peloponnesian War (Greek: π ) is a historical account of the Peloponnesian War (431-404 BC), which was fought between the Peloponnesian League (led by Sparta) and the Delian League (led by Athens). It was written by Thucydides, an Athenian historian who also happened to serve as an Athenian general during the war. His account of the conflict is widely considered to be a classic and regarded as one of the earliest scholarly works of history. The History is divided into eight books. Analyses of the History generally occur in one of two camps. On the one hand, some scholars view the work as an objective and scientific piece of history. The judgment of J. B. Bury reflects his traditional interpretation of the work: "[The History is] severe in its detachment, written from a purely intellectual point of view, unencumbered with platitudes and moral judgments, cold and critical." ] On the other hand, in keeping with more recent interpretations that are associated with reader-response criticism, the History can be read as a piece of literature rather than an objective record of the historical events. This view is embodied in the words of W. R. Connor, who describes Thucydides as "an artist who responds to, selects and skillfully arranges his material, and develops its symbolic and emotional potential." Benjamin Jowett (1817-1893) was born in Peckham, Kent, and grew up in Camberwell, the third of nine children. His father was a furrier originally from a Yorkshire family that, for three generations, had been supporters of the Evangelical movement in the Church of England; and an author of a metrical translation of the Old Testament Psalms. His mother was a Langhorne, related to John Langhorne, the poet and translator of Plutarch. At twelve, Jowett was placed on the foundation of St Paul's School (then in St Paul's Churchyard) where he soon gained a reputation as a precocious classical scholar. Aged eighteen he was awarded an open scholarship to Balliol College, Oxford, where he remained for the rest of his life. He went up in 1836, and was quickly recognized as one of the leading Oxford Dons of his generation, made a Fellow while still an undergraduate in 1838; he graduated with first-class honours in 1839. He was renowned as an influential tutor and administrative reformer in the University of Oxford, and as a translator of Plato and Thucydides -wikipedia .
