        AZERBAIJANI SATIRICAL POLITICAL MAGAZINE: MOLLA NASRADDIN.

      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’ve, Could’ve, Should’ve, was dedicated to this magazine.

        THE WORKS OF ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE. The Crowborough Edition.

      New York: Doubleday,Doran, 1930. Doyle, Arthur Conan. THE WORKS OF SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE. Garden City, NY: Doubleday, Doran, 1930. 23 (of 24) Volumes. An unusually fresh NEAR FINE set of Doyle's Crowborough Edition, the only complete collection of Doyle's works published in the author's lifetime, one of only 760 sets issued, and SIGNED by Doyle in Volume 1. Volume I with frontispiece portrait. Original publisher's linen-backed oatmeal-colored boards (a few volumes lightly foxed), printed spine labels, top edges gilt. TWENTY OF THE VOLUMES RETAIN THEIR ORIGINAL DUST JACKETS (DJs mostly in splendid, complete, untouched condition, only one chipped). An unusually fresh set, most volumes likely unread. There is very little wear amongst the three volumes that lack jackets. The missing Volume (number 17) is unfortunate (especially for us as this set otherwise would be valued at more than $10,000). As of this writing, we've been unable to locate a replacement and consequently have priced this item at a third of the set's value. Needless to say, we are on the lookout daily for Volume 17 but you have the opportunity until then to acquire this set at a rock bottom price. It always seems surprising that Doyle's full writings were never collected during his life and lucky indeed that this signed set managed to be arranged and printed less than a year before the author passed away. This set is rarely encountered today in commerce and those few that can be found generally are rebound or lack the dust jackets. A prize for the Doyle/Sherlock collector.. Signed by Author. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        WHOLE WORKS OF HOMER; PRINCE OF POETS, IN HIS ILIADS, AND ODYSSES. Translated according to the Greeke by George Chapman [with] THE CROWNE OF ALL HOMER'S WORKES, BATRACHOMYOMACHIA or the Baattaile of Frogs and Mise, his Hymns & Epigrams. Translated According to the Original by George Chapman

      Oxford by the Shakespeare Head Press for Basil Blackwell 1930-31 - Together 5 volumes. One of 450 copies only. Printed on Batchelor handmade paper and illustrated throughout with full-page wood engravings, portrait frontispieces and decorative title-page borders, all by John Farleigh, tissue-guard to elaborate frontispiece and title-page design of the first volume. Crown 8vo, original brick-red calf over and cream cloth covers, gilt lettered on the spines, protective glassine jackets. xxxix, 262; [vi], 289; xvi, 325; [vi], 307; xvi, 200 pp. A fine set, unusually nice, very handsome and clean and unusually well preserved. The calf bindings are in excellent condition with some honest and perfectly attractive age, though near as pristine as could be hoped. Crisp and fresh, an excellent set of a book rarely found in fine condition. FIRST EDITION OF THE GREAT WORK OF THE PRESS AND A FINE SET INDEED. Colin Franklin, writing in THE PRIVATE PRESSES, says that in the years after the death of A. H. Bullen (the Press's founder), the Shakespeare Head Press "became the most mature and sophisticated of the private presses, producing some works in the grand manner which are a great pleasure to read and examine now" (p. 147). This set indeed is "in the grand manner," printed in D. B. Updike's stately Centaur typeface, with large initials and shoulder notes, complemented perfectly by Farleigh's large wood-engravings. Typographically this is perhaps the most satisfying book of the press. GEO. CHAPMAN'S GREAT ENGLISH TRANSLATION. The final and most complete state of "Chapman’s Homer." It took Chapman 25 years to finish his master translation, meanwhile it was published in segments as he completed them. Seven books of the ILIADS (1-2 and 7-11) first appear in quarto in 1598, then books 1-12 in folio in 1609, and finally all 24 in 1611. Books 1-12 of the ODYSSES were first printed in c.1614 and then reissued with books 13-24 in 1615. Homer’s hymns and verses were separately published, c.1624 as was the BATRACHOMYOMACHIA. As the translation progressed, these works were also published together, so the ILIADS could be found alone, with the first 12 books of the ODYSSES, with the complete ODYSSES and finally with the ILIADS, ODYSSES and CROWNE of minor poems all together. So famous a book that the following was written of it in October, 1816 by one of the greatest poets of the English language:On First Looking Into Chapman's HomerMuch have I travell'd in the realms of gold, And many goodly states and kingdoms seen; Round many western islands have I beenWhich bards in fealty to Apollo hold.Oft of one wide expanse had I been told That deep-brow'd Homer ruled as his demesne; Yet never did I breathe its pure sereneTill I heard Chapman speak out loud and bold.Then felt I like some watcher of the skies When a new planet swims into his ken;Or like stout Cortez, when with eagle eyes He star'd at the Pacific - and all his men Look'd at each other with a wild surmise -Silent, upon a peak in Darien. -- John Keats [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
