        Taps at Reveille

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons 1935 - First edition, first printing, second state. Inscribed and signed by the author in black ink on front endpaper: "For Jim Hurley / adhesive tape expert / ('May every tape- / writer ribbon prove / to be an adhesive / tape' Dorothy Dix) / From his friend / F Scott Fitzgerald / Ashville 1936". Bound in the publisher's original dark blue cloth. A near fine copy, with light wear to the spine ends, light rubbing to the corners, a hint of spotting on the page edges and the front and back hinges. A very attractive copy. Fitzgerald inscribed this copy of Taps at Reveille to his friend James B. Hurley, a clerk at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, North Carolina, a resort hotel where the author resided from 1935 - 1936. Fitzgerald first traveled to Asheville on an extended visit due to personal health concerns about his lungs and stayed after he moved his wife Zelda to the Highland Hospital at Asheville. Hurley worked for Fitzgerald for nine months after applying to a classified advertisement for a typist. He typed Fitzgerald's manuscripts, manually manipulating his typewriter to create a triple-space between lines, Fitzgerald's preferred layout for editing. Additionally, Fitzgerald had Hurley assist with his finances, including contacting The Saturday Evening Post for payments when Fitzgerald's checking account was running low. When the two parted ways, Fitzgerald bequeathed Hurley with two manuscripts for his short stories and three signed novels, including this one. Bruccoli and Baughman, 124. Taps at Reveille is Fitzgerald's fourth collection of short stories and the last book published during his lifetime, one year after Tender is the Night. The collection contains eighteen stories, including: "Crazy Sunday," "A Woman with a Past," The Last of the Belles," and "Babylon Revisited." According to the publisher, Fitzgerald chose his best short stories for this collection, ones full of poignant and amusing stories of youth, gaiety, and adolescent error. "Babylon Revisited" is perhaps the best-known; it is a rueful contemplation of the Jazz Age in Paris and its follies (Edith H. Walton, New York Times).

        An Eastern Odyssey: The Third Expedition of Haardt and Audion-Dubreuil. Preface by André Citroën. Introduction by L. Audion-Dubreuil. Translated and Adapted by Major-General Sir E. D. Swinton K.B.E., C.B., D.S.O. (Ole Luk-Oie).

      London: Victor Gollancz Ltd, 1935 - Octavo. Original green cloth, spine lettered in gilt, map endpapers. With the dust jacket. Some foxing to edges; an excellent copy in the jacket that has some nicks to extremities. Frontispiece and 39 black and white plates. First edition in English, first impression. First published in Paris under the title La Croisière jaune: expédition Citroën Centre-Asie, troisième mission in 1933. The Third Citroën Expedition, the legendary Croisiere Jaune, was organized by Georges-Marie Haardt, Director General of Citroën, to promote the company's "Autochenilles," half-tracks fitted with Kergresse's tracks at the rear and a road-roller attachment at the front. The "Pamir" party with Haardt and French explorer Audouin-Dubreuil set out from Beirut with the intention of following the Silk Road to Peking; the "Chine" group were to meet them having departed from Tientsin. Russia withdrew permission to cross Turkmenistan at the last minute, so two of the vehicles were manhandled north into the Karakoram, crossing the close-to 14,000 ft Burzil Pass to Mishgar where they were finally halted by the terrain. The party proceeded on camels and horses to Kashgar. They met the others and despite arrest, bandits, rebels, and crashing through ice at a river crossing, went on to Peking in the "Chine" group vehicles, arriving in February 1932. The success of the expedition was marred by Haardt's death from pneumonia at Hong Kong the following month. The publisher's retained copy with their stamp to the front panel of the dust jacket and the front pastedown.

      Berlin Industrieverlag Spaeth & Linde, 1935.. . Vollständige Ausgabe im original Verlagseinband (3 braune Halbleinen-Mappen mit farbigem Rückentitel und Ringloch-Heftung, im Format 23 x 27,5 cm; Text:Fraktur), erschienen 1935 - 1939. - Band I "Die weltanschaulichen, politischen und staatsrechtlichen Grundlagen des nationalsozialistischen Staates", vollständig in 24 Einzelheften; Band II "Der Aufbau des nationalsozialistischen Staates", vollständig in 24 Einzelheften; Band III: "Die Wirtschaftsordnung des nationalsozialistischen Staates", vollständige Ausgabe in 22 Einzelheften. - Somit insgesamt vollständige Ausgabe des Gesamtwerkes, herausgegeben von Dr.Hans-Heinrich Lammers (Staatssekretär und Chef der Reichskanzlei) und Hans Pfundtner (Geheimer Regierungsrat und Staatssekretär im Reichs- und Preußischen Ministerium des Inneren) unter Mitwirkung von Prof.Dr.Otto Koellreutter (o.ö.Professor an der Universität München), Schriftleitung: Dr.Fritz Müßigbrodt (Geschäftsführer des Reichsverbandes Deutscher Verwaltungs-Akademien, Berlin). - Dieses grundlegende, umfangreiche Sammelwerk mit Aufsätzen aus den Federn führender Nationalsozialisten ist eine wichtige Quelle zu Wesen und Geschichte des NS-Staates. Die Hefte 1-22 des ersten Bandes behandeln die weltanschaulichen politischen und staatsrechtlichen Grundlagen des nationalsozialistischen Staates; die Hefte 23 - 43 des 2.Bandes behandeln den "Aufbau des nationalsozialistischen Staates", und die Hefte 44-61 des 3.Bandes beschreiben "Die Wirtschaftsordnung des nationalsozialistischen Staates". - Mit Geleitworten von Wilhelm Frick (Reichs- und Preußischer Minister des Innern), Dr. Hans Frank (Reichsminister, Präsident der Akademie für deutsches Recht), Hermann Neef (Hauptamtsleiter des Hauptamtes für Beamte der Reichsleitung der NSDAP, Reichswalter des Reichsbundes der Deutschen Beamten) und Albert Forster (Staatsrat und Gauleiter, Leiter der Reichsberufsgruppen in der Deutschen Arbeitsfront DAF). - Aus dem Geleitwort von Dr. Hans Frank: "Das Recht ist die Seele jedes Staates. Die Gesetzgebung hebt es an das Licht des Bewusstseins. Das Schöpfen des reinen deutschen Rechts aus dem Quell der deutschen Volksseele ist die Aufgabe der Rechtserneuerung. In ihr liegt die geschichtliche Bedeutung dieser Zeit für die Geschichte des deutschen Rechtes. Wie der Gesetzgeber auf die Laute der deutschen Volkseele zu hören hat, um das Recht zu erkennen, so muss der Beamte, welcher die im Staate verkörperte Rechtsordnung handhabt, auf die Stimme des Gesetzes hören, um seinen Willen zu verstehen. Das Wissen um das Recht, aber noch mehr das Erfüllen des Rechtes, gilt es zu schulen. Die Auslegung des Rechtes darf nicht bloß logisch-sinngemäß sein, sie muss vor allem verstandesmäßig das Richtige finden können. Weder in allzu großer Strenge, noch in unbestimmter Billigkeit liegt das Maß der Rechtsanwendung, sondern im richtigen Verständnis des Rechtsgeistes. Ohne diese verständnisvolle Rechtsanwendung ist das Gesetz tot, daher ist es die Aufgabe der Beamtenschaft, dieses Verhältnis zu vertiefen, um dem deutschen Volke in der größten Aufgabe, welche einem Deutschen gegeben sein kann, das Vaterland zu leiten in Ordnung zu halten, zu dienen. In dieser Aufgabe will "Die Verwaltungs-Akademie" die Kräfte unterstützen und den Beamten helfen." Aus der Studienanweisung am Anfang der Sammlung: "Die Aufgabe dieses Werkes besteht darin, den deutschen Beamten Sinn und Wesen des nationalsozialistischen Staates nahezubringen und ihm praktisch dabei zu helfen, seine vielseitigen Obliegenheiten und Pflichten aus nationalsozialistischem Geist heraus zu erfüllen. Das Werk will nicht nur gelesen, sondern Seite für Seite, Kapitel für Kapitel durchgearbeitet werden, sodaß sein Inhalt ganz in den geistigen und gefühlsmäßigen Besitz dessen übergeht, der sich diesem Studium unterzieht." - Aus dem Inhalt: Rosenberg, Religion und Kultur / Dietrich, Der Nationalsozialismus als Weltanschauung / Darre, Blut und Boden / von Leers, Rassengeschichte des deutschen Volkes / Fabricius, Das Programm der NSDAP / Fabricius, Organisatorischer Aufbau der NSDAP / Schulz, Der rassische und völkische Gedanke des Nationalsozialismus / Fabricius, Geschichte der nationalsozialistischen Bewegung / Fabricius, Das Programm der NSDAP / Fabricius, Organisatorischer Aufbau der NSDAP / Reinhardt, Vom Wesen der Volksgemeinschaft / Krieck, Nationalsozialistische Erziehung / Fehrle, Das Wesen des Volkes / Gütt, Bevölkerungs- und Rassenpolitik / Ruttke, Familienpflege / Lösener, Staatsangehörigkeit und Reichsbürgerrecht / Stuckart, Nationalsozialismus und Staatsrecht / Koellreutter, Quellen des nationalsozialistischen Staatsrechts / Roland Freisler, Richter und Gesetz / Gerber, Vom Bundesstaat zum nationalsozialistischen Volksstaat / Koellreutter, Der Aufbau des deutschen Führerstaates / Vahlen, Wissenschaft, Erziehung und Volksbildung im nationalsozialistischen Staate (Band I); Medicus, Reichsverwaltung und Landesverwaltung / Weidemann, Deutsches Verwaltungsrecht / Danckwerths, Der Rechtsschutz in der Verwaltung / Karl Fiehler, Deutsches Gemeinderecht / Weidemann, Gemeinde und Staat, Partei, Volk, Wirtschaft / Seel, Deutsches Beamtenrecht / Kehrl, Die Polizei / Haselmayr, Die Wehrmacht / Blank, Fürsorge und Jugendrecht / Naendrup, Bürgerliches Recht Allgemeiner Teil / Hueck, Schuldrecht / Justus Wilhelm Hedemann, Sachenrecht / Fischer, Familien- und Erbrecht / Hedemann, Grundbuchrecht / Großmann-Doerth, Wirtschaftsrecht einschließlich Gewerberecht / Mansfeld, Arbeitsrecht / Richter, Sozialversicherung / Krug, Strafrecht / Schaffstein, Strafverfahren / Vollmar, Zivilprozessrecht / Kisch, Zwangsvollstreckung, Konkurs- und Vergleichsrecht / Schlegelberger, Freiwillige Gerichtsbarkeit (Band II); Dr.Posse (Staatssekretär im Reichs- und Preußischen Wirtschaftsministerium, Berlin): Die deutsche Wirtschaft, usw. - - Beiliegend ein Originalschreiben (zweifarbiger Briefkopf, einseitig bedruckt, Din A4) des Verlags vom 2.Mai 1939 mit folgendem Text: "Sehr geehrter Herr! Heute überreichen wir Ihnen die Lieferungen 51/52 der "Verwaltungs-Akademie". Damit hat das Werk seinen Abschluss erreicht. Im einen wichtigen letzten Beitrag enthält die Sendung ein umfassendes Sachregister. Ferner liegt ein berichtigtes Inhaltsverzeichnis bei, das wir anstelle der mit der ersten Lieferung übersandten, jetzt überholten Inhaltsübersicht abzuheften bitten.

        Young England. A Play in Two Periods. With Six Illustrations.

      London: Victor Gollancz Ltd, 1935 - Octavo. Original brown cloth, spine lettered in blue, white, and red. With the jacket. Contents and edges slightly foxed; an excellent copy in the bright jacket with some loss and nicks to spine ends. Portrait frontispiece and 5 plates. First edition, first impression. Scarce in the dust jacket. The publisher's retained copy with their stamp to the front pastedown. Young England was universally panned by critics on its debut and was deemed the worst play to have appeared on the London stage in decades, but it went on to entertain packed houses for nearly a year. Audiences discovered that this perfectly serious, melodramatic and patriotic hymn of praise to "Young England" in general, and the Boy and Girl Guides in particular, was so excruciatingly bad that it was good. They memorised lines to join in with the cast, calling out alternative lines, giving stage directions and generally falling about laughing as they burlesqued the piece unmercifully. It reached a point where stewards and the author himself patrolled the aisles trying to keep the audience under control. For their part the critics followed the play as it moved from theatre to theatre and happily reviewed the audience participation. When it opened at the Picadilly Theatre the Times critic wrote "The audience are definitely over-rehearsed. They speak their lines in anticipation of their cues and they have an unfortunate tendancy to hurry through their best passages without waiting for the laugh". Quite extraordinarily the play was revived for a short run at the Holdorn Empire after the outbreak of war in 1939 and although the audience immediately took up its role: "This performance, it must be owned, fell far short of distinction".

        THE COLLECTED GHOST STORIES OF OLIVER ONIONS

      Ivor Nicholson and Watson Limited, London 1935 - Octavo, pp. [i-vi] vii [viii] ix-xi [xii] [1-2] 3-689 [690-692: blank] [note: last leaf is a blank], original decorated black cloth, front and spine panels stamped in white. An omnibus volume collecting nineteen stories, several appearing here for the first time in book form, by a master of the English ghost story. Onions is best known for his supernatural fiction and "is regarded by many as one of the twentieth century masters of the genre . [his ghost stories] are notable for their depth of psychological insight, elegant writing and sophisticated plots . 'The Beckoning Fair One' (1911) is regarded by many as one of the greatest English tales of the supernatural but has overshadowed Onions' other work in the genre which some consider of equal, if not greater, importance. In fact, the majority of the author's supernatural fiction is of an extremely high standard and is notable for its originality, subtlety and careful characterizations which lift it well above the average . Although Onions' ghost fiction is traditional in form, he concentrates more fully than his contemporaries upon his characters' inner feelings and physical reaction when faced with the seemingly inexplicable. A common theme is the gradual breakdown of an individual's personality following the realization that the supernatural is not confined to the haunted castles of the past but flourishes in the contemporary everyday world. Interestingly, Onions was a great pragmatist and did not believe in ghosts or occult agencies of any sort. It is therefore testament to his writing skills that he so convincingly conveys supernatural atmosphere and events." - Wilson, Shadows in the Attic, p. 398.

        Seven Pillars of Wisdom, the U.S. publisher's quarter leather limited edition, copy #178 of 750

      New York: Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc., 1935. First, Limited Editon. Hardcover. This is the publisher's finely bound, hand-numbered limited issue of the U.S. first edition, copy #178 of 750, quite scarce in the original publisher's dust jacket and slipcase. Seven Pillars of Wisdom is the story of T.E. Lawrence's (1888-1935) remarkable odyssey as instigator, organizer, hero, and tragic figure of the Arab revolt against the Ottoman Empire during the First World War, which he began as an eccentric junior intelligence officer and ended as "Lawrence of Arabia." This time defined Lawrence with indelible experience and celebrity, which he would spend the rest of his famously short life struggling to reconcile and reject, to recount and repress. Lawrence famously resisted publication of his masterwork for the general public during his lifetime. The saga is remarkable. He nearly completed a massive first draft in 1919, only to famously lose it when his briefcase was mislaid at a train station. This first draft was never recovered. At a fever pitch, Lawrence wrote a new 400,000 word draft in 1920. This punishing burst of writing was followed by an equally brutal process of editing by Lawrence. In 1922, a 335,000 word version was carefully circulated to select friends and literary critics - the famous "Oxford Text". George Bernard Shaw called it "a masterpiece". Nonetheless, Lawrence was unready to see it distributed to the public. Finally, in 1926, a further edited 250,000 word "Subscribers' Edition" was produced by Lawrence - but fewer than 200 copies were made, each lavishly and uniquely bound. The process cost Lawrence far more than he made in subscriptions. To recover the loss, Lawrence finally authorized an edition for the general public - but one even further abridged and entitled "Revolt in the Desert". It was only in the summer of 1935, in the weeks following Lawrence's death, that the text of the Subscribers' Edition was finally published for circulation to the general public. Simultaneous with both the British and U.S. general trade first editions were finely bound, hand-numbered limited editions of 750 copies. The limited issue of the U.S. edition is bound in quarter dark brown pigskin over maroon buckram boards with beveled edges, maroon top edge, and red and yellow head and foot bands. The U.S. limited issue came with both a dust jacket and stout cardboard slipcase, both in brown paper with laid paper chain and wire lines. The dust jacket is printed only on the spine, the slipcase unadorned. Here is copy #178 of 750, hand numbered thus on the limitation page. Condition is near fine. The dark brown pigskin spine of this U.S. limited edition proved highly susceptible to toning, soiling, and cracking, so most copies encountered suffer shabby spine appearance. This copy is a notable exception, with a beautifully square, tight, and clean binding. The boards are flawless with virtually no wear. The leather spine is also quite nice, clean with no cracking, bright gilt, only a hint of uniform toning, and fractional wear at the spine ends. What prevents our grading this copy as fine are a few tiny worm holes at the lower rear hinge. We find no damage to the text within. The damage is minor and does not appear recent. The contents are complete and clean apart from a little transfer browning from the pastedown glue. The dark red topstain retains flawlessly uniform and unfaded color. Light spotting appears confined to the untrimmed fore and bottom edges. The dust jacket is complete apart from shallow chipping at the spine ends. The spine is modestly toned and creased. We have fitted the dust jacket with a removable, archival quality clear cover which places no stress on the publisher's slipcase. The original publisher's slipcase is fully intact, with no split seams. We note minor wear to extremities and some overall staining and soiling. Please anticipate additional shipping cost for this large, heavy book, depending on shipping destination. Bibliographic reference: O'Brien A053

        Treasure Cruise:

      London: H. F. & G. Witherby,, 1935.. The Voyage of the "Vigilant" to Cocos Island. Octavo. Original blue boards, titles to spine in orange, bottom edge untrimmed. With the dust jacket. Photographic frontispiece with tissue guard, 5 similar plates, fold-out map, cartographic plate. Spine sunned, boards slightly marked, one plate loose, some rubbing and a couple of nicks to dust jacket. A very good copy. First edition, first impression. With the second impression dust jacket. Publisher's file copy, with their bookplate to front pastedown. Commander James Plumpton recounts a voyage in which "a party of nine, including the author, sailed a converted 50-ton Brixham trawler to Cocos Island by way of the Panama Canal...On reaching Cocos Island they found an expedition with a three-year exclusive treasure hunting permit from the Costa Rican government already at work. After extended negotiations, the two expeditions joined forces. Their search, made under very difficult conditions, was unsuccessful" (Toy). The vessel was sold in Punta Arenas and the crew made their own ways home, with Plumpton himself still believing the elusive treasure to be buried on the island, somewhere near the high-water mark. Like many Witherby titles, this volume concludes with a chapter offering practical advice on the matter at hand - in this case, treasure-hunting. With a preface by Admiral Alexander Victor Campbell, who writes that the author "served me gallantly and well in the Dardanelles Campaign and elsewhere.

"Light is thrown from a fresh angle on Disraeli and his erratic wife, as well as on Thackeray, all three friends of the family. There are glimpses of Louis Napoleon and the disturbances of 1848 and of 1870, of the Austrian Court in 1873, and of three generations of our own royal family. In their letters and conversations we find characteristic traits of Mr. Gladstone, Lord Rosebery, and their Liberal supporters, and of Burne-Jones and Meredith, and other artists and writers.... The Rothschild family in its earlier days appeals to the imagination by its financial power, which brought it into contact with those who ruled the destinies of Europe and by its munificence; while its Judaism and the peculiar features of its solidarity make the family history interesting and, in some ways, unique." - from Preface.

        Photo Album - Indonesia, Bali & Philippines

      Asia, 1935. Dutch East India (Indonesia), the Philippines, 1935. Album of 191 black and white snapshot photographs, by a German traveller who purposefully captured the local ways of life, fortuitously at the advent of development and economic transformation. Photographs vary slightly in size, the majority measuring 11 x 7 cm, and the smallest one measuring approximately 4,5 x 8 cm. Qto. quarter calf over irregular autumn yellow patterned paper, gilt lines and labels to spine. Volume measures approximately 30 x 24 x 4 cm. Slight wear to spine and corners, otherwise in Very Good Condition, with crisp and bright images. So sprightly, detailed and numerous are the scenes in this volume, that a comprehensive visual tale of Maritime Southeast Asian and Austronesian custom and history unfolds in delightful imagery. Industrious and energetic, most islanders are unaware that they are being photographed as they are occupied at fabricating and selling their wares, patrolling streets, tending rice fields, conveying produce or straw, washing linens in the river, harvesting crops, greeting foreigners and steering carriages, hence the snapshots provide a most authentic perspective. The 40 some photos taken in Singpaore, then part of the British Crown Colony known as the Straits Settlements, include a tour of Bukit Timah, Chinatown, the historic Raffles Hotel which dates back to early colonial times, bustling street scenes, and harbour views upon arrival. Six (6) photographs are taken in Johor. Especially rare and captivating are the 30 photographs of Bali, which had only recently been opened to tourism in 1914, as is evident by the very diminutive and humble original 'Bali Hotel'. Dating to the earliest stages of tourism and reprieve from oppressive foreign colonial administration, the images precede eminent development, and in and of themselves preserve Balinese tradition. In Kintamani, some residents are preparing for a coq fight (known as tajen, and practiced in an ancient religious purification ritual to expel evil spirits). Others are working hard at harvesting rice, and one man weaves a straw mat by hand with no tools or apparatus of any kind. The foreigners are welcomed with the traditional "Legong" Balinese dance. A lovely bamboo hut village and spectacular rice paddies fields are also photographed. [In response to negative criticism following the Southern Bali campaigns (1906-08), in order to establish of an "ethical policy" while introducing their modernization plans, the Dutch in Bali endeavoured to learn and preserve Balinese culture. Depicting Bali a "living museum" of classical culture, in 1914 Bali was opened to tourism. In the 1930s, anthropologists Margaret Mead and Gregory Bateson, and artists Miguel Covarrubias and Walter Spies, and musicologist Colin McPhee created a western image of Bali as "an enchanted land of aesthetes at peace with themselves and nature", and western tourism first developed on the island.] In Java the 26 images feature street scenes and beautiful ladies in Djokjarta (Yogyakarta), spectacular gardens, large bundles of straw balanced on the shoulders of hard working men. The photographer stayed at the Grand hotel and took a well warranted tour of the 9th century temple known as Borobudur, returning with views of exquisite reliefs including that of Queen Maya in a horse drawn carriage retreating to Lumbini to give birth to Prince Siddhartha Gautama, or Buddha (Lalitavistara). Batavia (now Jakarta) appears in 40 photographs, where nostalgic images include horse-drawn carriages, a simple street tram, locals merchandising on the street, riverside shops and an outdoor market, lovely views of the canal. Historic buildings include the museum, and the "Hotel des Indes" which was considered one of the oldest and most prestigious hotels in Asia. Three rare photographs show the first coffee plant in Weltevreden named Tek Sun Ho, Eerstee Weltrever-denschee Koffiebranderij, which was founded in 1878 by a Chinese immigrant from Guangdong, named Liaw Tek Sun (Liau Tek Siong) and his wife who is a native Indonesian. In front of the coffee factory, on the Molenvliet Canal, bamboo rafts are conveying building material and residents are washing linens. In South Sulawesi the photographer includes 3 views of the Balu Batoa peak near Pangkajene. In the Philippines, Manila and environs are seen in approximately 45 views , such as the palm tree flanked Bonifacio Drive named for leader of the 1896 Philippine Revolution, the legislative building (National Museum), a colonial college, and the baroque Quiapo Church as it stood before remodelling. Large businesses crowd a street along the Pasig river, one rooftop advertising the Adamson School of Industrial Chemistry which was founded in 1932 by George Lucas Adamson. Manila being virtually unrecognizable compared to today, photographs include homes on stilts, tiered rice paddies, and a quaint little village of straw thatched roofs. The traveller arrived here during the American Period, after the Philippine Independence Act in 1934, but before the first Philippine Presidential elections held in September 1935. Dates and locations occasionally penciled in margins reveal that the two-week voyage on the SS Resolute of the Hamburg America Line, took place in March 1935, arriving in Singapore on the 16th. This may have been the vessel's final cruise voyage before being renamed "Lombardia" by the Italian Government and converted to a transport ship for the Abyssinian War. . Very Good.

        An Original Photo Album of Egypt

      Egypt, Palestine., 1935. Original album of unique aerial views and several large photographs compiled by an officer of the Royal Air Force while serving with 45 Squadron to maintain presence and authority in Egypt and Palestine. Contains 179 black and white photographs, each captioned in manuscript and neatly mounted with corners onto 23 brown cardstock leaves separated with tissue guard. Also with a clipping of the squadron's singed camel insignia, and seven (7) Egyptian postage stamps pasted to inside of front board, three of which are postally used, four of which are not. Photographs vary in sizes, the smallest measuring approximately 2.5 x 3.5 inches, and the largest 8.25 x 6.25 inches. Oblong Quarto Album, green cloth string-tied boards, fraying at extremities, loss of spine, otherwise in Very Good Condition, internally sound, a uniquely pleasing album of photographs. Although the Kingdom of Egypt was an independent Egyptian state established under the Muhammad Ali Dynasty in 1922 following the recognition of Egyptian independence by the United Kingdom, it's sovereignty was subject to severe limitations imposed by the British, who retained enormous control over Egyptian affairs, and whose military continued to occupy the country. Remarkable photographs of RAF Forty-Five Squadron in Egypt during the interval between the two World Wars, this album boasts a profusion of images, nothing less than stellar, including many aerial views of iconic monuments which are usually only observed from the ground. A riveting first photograph of Egypt consists of a Fairey IIIF reconnaissance biplane flying just above cloud level with its spotter and pilot clearly visible and vulnerable in its open design. The region between and inclusive of the Western Desert and Mersa Matruh, reminiscent of the First World War British Campaign against Arab and Berber tribes, is predominant in the volume, seen in approximately 56 photographs. Here images show a wreckage of a Vickers Valentia aircraft which claimed the life of 7 men, the very first train to enter Matruh upon first opening of the Desert Railway, SS Aboukir and SS Bacchus at port, a large group photo of No.3 RAF Air Stores squadron, the Sudan camel corps, and a Senussi tribe encampment [The Senussi fought against the British in Egypt and Sudan in WWI]. The town of Mersa Matruh and outlying buildings appears in a few photographs, while scant sign posts, a rudimentary gravesite, an ancient Arab gateway, and a desolate railway station pierce the otherwise desolate terrain. Particularly interesting is a photograph of military tanks being deployed for the Second Italo-Ethiopian War which was currently underway (October 1935- May 1936), and another of the Gloster Regiment marching away from Mersa Matruh after the war. Over a dozen photographs are taken in the environs of Helwan in May 1935, including cityscape views, the RAF Camp, and a perfect formation of bi-planes and pilots commemorating the squadron, all captured while flying overhead. Native mud huts with flat straw roofs and Egyptians filling clay jugs in the Nile are photographed up close from the ground. [During the early part of the 20th century, the city and outlying regions of Helwan was the site of RAF Helwan, a major British airbase, which was later used by the Egyptian Air Force.] Twenty-nine (29) photographs illustrate the city of Ismailia and the RAF camp there, some specifically dated June 1935. These feature the mooring mast erected for the ill-fated R101 rigid airship - the largest blimp at the time, an impressive and unusually clear view of the war memorial to unknown soldiers of the First World War, a commemorative bust of Ferdinand de Lesseps, views of the Suez Canal, various aircraft, and a horse-drawn carriage known as a gharry. Egyptian custom and traditional labour is portrayed in striking photographs taken in Alexandria, some of which include street merchants, furniture makers, tailors sewing by hand, brass workers, and a butcher. City streets and historic buildings are also photographed, as well as a distant view of the palace of King Farouk, and the RAF camp at Aboukir (Abu Qir) only fourteen miles northeast of the city. There are 14 photographs of Alexandria. Antiquity is seen in photographs of a Roman cave and Roman storehouses excavated by archaeologists in the Western Desert, remnants of a Roman marble and limestone pavement mosaic in Alexandria, a most unusual view of the Edfu Temple largely under water during Nile flood season, an equally rare perspective of the Great Sphinx of Giza and its surroundings from a vantage point that only an aircraft can provide, and an enchanting view of the pyramids. Nine (9) photographs are taken at Sakkara or Saqqara, the vast necropolis for ancient Memphis, featuring a corridor of columns, the famous step pyramid built for Pharoah Djoser by his vizier Imhotep, and detailed wall reliefs inside the tomb of Akhethotep and Ptahhotep, where cameras are now prohibited. Other photographs include a military parade in Cairo, a Bedouin village situated near an oasis, a ferry on the at Suez Canal at El Kantara (Al Qantarah El Sharqiyya), a steamship on the Nile, and so forth. As well as in Egypt, 19 photographs are from Jerusalem, Palestine, then part of the short-lived British Protectorate Trans-Jordania. These include the Jaffa Gate, the Damascus Gate entrance to the Old City, the Mount of Olives and Garden of Gethsemane, the Tower of David, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Mosque of Omar, the Wailing Wall, views of the Dead Sea and River Jordan. An exceptionally pleasing album of photographs from Egypt and the ever-coveted Holy Land..
