Der Atlas-Band befindet sich noch im Original-Schuber. Einziges während der NS-Zeit erschienenes Großlexikon, das unter unmittelbarer \"Mitarbeit\" nationalsozialistischer Parteidienststellen entstand. Hier liegt die Crux, aber zugleich auch das Besondere dieses Lexikons, das wie kaum ein anderes Werk den nationalsozialistischen Zeitgeist in seiner Komplexität widerspiegelt. Der Atlas-Band enthält unter anderem seltenes Kartenmaterial zur politischen Topographie (u. a. Gaueinteilung der NSDAP) sowie zur Wirtschaftsgeographie (Schwerpunkte der industriellen und landwirtschaftlichen Produktion) des Dritten Reiches. Als Nachschlagewerk zum Dritten Reich daher eine wichtige Informationsquelle für alle zeitgeschichtlich Interessierten. Buchrücken partiell leicht berieben. Davon abgesehen aber sehr guter Erhaltungszustand. Deckelbezüge sauber; Seiten frisch und fleckenfrei; die Bände wurden erkennbar kaum gelesen; der sonst häufig stärker benutzte Atlas-Band hier besonders gut erhalten (noch im Schuber); mehrere, teilweise farbige Verlagsprospekte des Bibliographischen Instituts noch beiliegend. Sehr gutes Exemplar der gesuchten Prachtausgabe dieses zeitgeschichtlich aufschlußreichen Lexikons.

        Photo Album of Medical Officer of the Asiatic Fleet Flagship "Augusta"

      China, Southeast Asia, and Japan. 1936. Oblong quarto. Measuring 15" x 11". Full decorative embossed leather album bound with steel rivets. 102 pages interleaved with tissue containing 846 mostly black and white gelatin silver photographs; measuring between 1.25" x 1.5" to 7.75" x 9.75", with most measuring between 2.5" x 3.75" to 3.75" x 5". Approximately three-quarters of the photos are captioned and a few items of ephemera tipped in. Approximately 25-30 are commercial images or real photo postcards, but the vast majority are well-composed snapshots. Album is very good or better with some scuffing and loss to the lower corner of rear cover and lacking the clasp; contents are generally fine.This massive album was compiled by Lt. Commander Toson O. Summers, the medical officer of the USS Augusta which was the flagship of the Asiatic fleet. The path of the Augusta in 1936 is well-documented. Summers went to great lengths to map his tour of duty and this album reflects that concern. It is artfully designed (the album itself handmade by an artist in Chefoo (now Yantai), very well-captioned, and filled with an extraordinary amount of interesting images. Summers visited many cities in China including Shanghai, Amoy, Nanking, Soochow, Tsingtao, Peiping, and Chingwantao. Additionally Summers compiled many images from Japan, Bali, the Philippines, Singapore, and Indonesia.Summers was an inveterate photographer with a keen eye for street imagery as well as native peoples and their cultures. Though an amateur, he artfully captured dozens of street scenes and markets; businesses such as a hemp factory, farming, restaurants, smugglers, and brothels; and many great birds-eye views of local towns. In addition to all the views of daily life there are more than one series of funerals; others show native dances, a lama service, a Eucharist Congress, acrobats, healers, and more. His landscape pictures are equally well-composed and some images include Mount Fuji, the Cloud Tower, Borabudur, The Great Wall, and various beaches.Additionally there are a couple of dozen images showing life on the ship, including a couple where the men are dressed in drag and one or two of a softball game. One particularly interesting shot shows a man standing between the wings of a seaplane flying over the water; another shows a man with a chicken; others show a line of camels at The Great Wall, a roadside restaurant, and a funeral pyre in Bali. Additionally there are 25 beautifully affected hand-colored images. A few of these are very nice panoramas measuring 3.75" x 11". In all a massive, unique, and comprehensive immersion into the people, lifestyle, culture and scenery of Asia in the years leading up to World War II, much more detailed than all similar albums of the period that we've handled. .

He contributed to twenty works, notably the Bible (Nonesuch, 5 vols., 1925–7), The Fables of Jean de la Fontaine (2 vols., Heinemann, 1931), and Aesop's Fables (Harrap, 1935 sic). In addition, Gooden designed and engraved more than forty bookplates, including those for Queen Elizabeth, Princess Elizabeth, and Princess Margaret, and four for the Royal Library, Windsor Castle.”

        THE NONESUCH CENTURY: AN APPRAISAL, A PERSONAL NOTE AND A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF THE FIRST HUNDRED BOOKS ISSUED BY THE PRESS, 1923-1934

      London: Nonesuch Press, 1936. No. 663 OF 750 COPIES n. This bibliography covers the first 100 books and the first 10 years of the Nonesuch Press, which was founded in 1923 by Vera Mendel, David Garnett, and Francis Meynell, with the last being in charge of book production. The Press produced a substantial corpus of fine printing, although the books were not produced exclusively to be collectible objects. As the "Prospectus of the Nonesuch Editions" says, "The Book Public may be divided into three parts. The Libraries cater for the section of it which reads books without wishing to possess them. A number of 'toy' presses cater for collectors who do not read. The Nonesuch Press was founded in the interest of those among the book collectors who also use books for reading." Despite the fact that those who ran the Nonesuch Press (Meynell chief among them) did not take themselves too seriously, the press had a major influence on the history of the private press in England, especially between the wars. The present copy has a significant association, having been part of the library at the Curwen Press. Founded (under a different name) in 1863, the Curwen Press became an important player in the world of private printing in 1914, when Harold Curwen (1885-1949), the grandson of the original founder, took control. In 1921, Oliver Simon (1895-1956) joined the firm, and he was instrumental in upgrading the quality of book production, in part by commissioning typefaces, illustrations, and decorations from, among others, Jan Van Krimpen, Rudolf Koch, Edward Bawden, Paul Nash, and Graham Sutherland (Lovat Fraser was already working for the press when Simon came in). Glaister says that "The brilliantly successful association of Curwen and Simon led to a steady flow of fine books as well as jobbing printing of outstanding quality.". 318 x 203 mm. (12 1/2 x 8"). xi, [i], 80 pp. No. 663 OF 750 COPIES. Original green buckram, flat spine with black morocco label. Later sturdy marbled paper slipcase. With engraved portrait of Meynell by Eric Gill, three pages of printer's devices, six photogravure plates of bindings, 52 pages reproducing illustrative text and title pages, and 45 inserts of reprinted leaves mounted on dark gray paper, 25 of these bifolia. Front pastedown with bookplate reading "From the Library of the / Curwen Press / London." Dreyfus 106. Spine sunned (as always with this book), one sample a bit creased, otherwise very fine.

Etat satisfaisant (fente en mors, fortes mouill. aux plats, bon état intérieur) Ouvrage provenant de la propre bibliothèque de l'auteur, le professeur Georges-H. Bousquet (Docteur en droit en 1923 avec une thèse sur "L'évolution sociale en Hollande 1914-1922"), économiste de l'école de Pareto et Schumpeter, mais également islamisant de l'école de Goldziher et Snouck-Hugronje, professeur aux facultés d'Alger puis de Bordeaux. Peu après sa thèse, il participa à la mission de la SDN pour la restauration financière de l'Autriche.Georges-H. Bousquet résumait ainsi ses travaux en Islamologie (dans les mélanges qui lui furent consacrés dans les Cahiers Pareto en 1965) : "Très en gros, on pourrait dire à ce sujet que je suis parti intellectuellement de la Loi rituelle, morale et juridique de l'Islâm (fiqh) et ai essayé de voir dans quelle mesure cette étrange casuistique (dont j'ai traduit de nombreux textes et dont j'ai exposé les règles dans divers ouvrages) est appliquée, ou non, dans les sociétés musulmanes d'Afrique du Nord surtout (mais également en Indonésie). En particulier, mon attention s'est portée sur le rituel ('ibâdates) presque toujours systématiquement négligé par mes prédécesseurs". Français
