        Shall We Commit Suicide?

      New York: Eilert Printing Company, Inc., 1924. First edition. Pamphlet. This scarce, original 1924 pamphlet contains a prescient and grim discussion of the potential horrors of future warfare and advocacy for the League of Nations for international standards of "sanity and hope". Among the issues discussed by Churchill is the prospect of biological warfare: "A study of Disease - of Pestilences methodically prepared and deliberately launched upon man and beast - is certainly being pursued in the laboratories of more than one great country. Blight to destroy crops, Anthrax to slay horses and cattle, Plague to poison not armies but whole districts - such are the lines along which military science is remorselessly advancing." The pamphlet is introduced with an exhortation on the front cover by Charles W. Eliot, Harvard University's longest serving president and a noted supporter of progressive movement causes: "This Statement of the English Winston Churchill, in view of the actual and prospective destructive agencies available in war, should be placed forthwith in every American household." This pamphlet measures 8 x 3.5 inches and is 11 pages in length, wire-stitched with paper wraps. This copy is the best preserved example of this scarce pamphlet we have offered in many years. Condition is near fine. The pamphlet remains crisp and fully intact, with no losses, tears, or creasing. Both binding staples remain firmly attached with no corrosion. A bit of trivial soiling to the covers and a hint of toning to the edges are the only modest flaws noted. We find no previous ownership marks. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A74.1, Woods A33

        Zapiski poeta. Povest? [Aufzeichnungen eines Dichters. Erzählung].

      Original-Ausgabe. - Selvinsky war einer der bedeutendsten Vertreter des literarischen Konstruktivismus. Die vorliegende Erzählung ist eine Art Autobiographie des Dichters, der seine Verse hier als Werk des imaginären Lyrikers Evgeny Ney publizierte. - Berühmtheit erlangte die kleine Veröffentlichung vor allem durch die prägnante Einbandgestaltung El Lissitzkys. So nutzte er zwei fotografische Porträtaufnahmen, die er 1924 von Hans Arp fertigte, und belichtete die Negative unterschiedlich, so dass die Profilaufnahme heller und die Frontalaufnahme dunkler geriet, schließlich fügte er beide zu einem Doppelporträt zusammen. Als Hintergrund verwandte er die Dada-Zeitschrift 391, auf den Hemdkragen ließ er den Namen des imaginären Dichters setzen. - Erschienen in einer Aulage von dreitausend Exemplaren. - Die häufig fehelnde Faltkarte hier mit Einriss, sonst hervorragend erhaltenes Exemplar. - Lissitzky-Küppers 121. - Kat. Sprengel Museum 218. - Bowlt/Hernad 73. - Kat. MoMa 750. - Andel, Avantgarde Pagedesign 252.

        LO SPETTATORE ITALIANO, rivista letteraria dell'Italia nuova - 1924 - tutto il pubblicato - direttore GIUSEPPE BOTTAI, Roma, Industrie Grafiche Romane, 1924

      1924. 4 x 23,5, brossura. Quindicinale diretto da G. Bottai e A. Frateil, concepito per aggregare le più autorevoli forze culturali, allo scopo di affiancare la "Critica Fascista" nell'azione di LEGITTIMARE IL REGIME, nella sua fase cruciale di consolidamento. Il periodico era strutturato in saggi, articoli e testi letterari, con riguardo anche all'arte ed alle letterature straniere. In quest'ultimo settore SPAINI curava la letteratura tedesca, LO GATTO la letteratura russa ed UNGARETTI quella francese. Indispensabile sottolineare la schiera di collaboratori, per dare una idea dello sforzo compiuto da Bottai per mettere in campo "IL MEGLIO" ! (Agnoletti, Aleramo S., Alvaro C., Bacchelli, Bontempelli, Bragaglia A.G., Carrà C., Cecchi E., Croce B., D'Amico, Deledda G., Flora F., Fracchia U., Franchi R., Linati C., Meriano F., Montano L., Moscardelli N., Negri Ada, Ojetti, Pancrazi P., Panzini A., Pavolini C., Pirandello Luigi, Prezzolini, Ravegnani, Saba U., Savinio A., Soffici Ardengo ( che curo' anche la stesura del programma iniziale) Tozzi F., Viani Lorenzo ed altri..) Non viene mai evidenziato, ma la rivista ha (forse) la segreta ambizione di evocare i fasti della famosissima rivista inglese THE SPECTATOR., comparsa dal 1 marzo 1711 al 6 dicembre 1912 : periodico che fece da "spettatore" sui grandi fatti inglesi ed internazionali.. Con lo stesso titolo "Lo spettatore Italiano" comparirà poi in Italia (nel 1948) un periodico, diretto da Elena Croce, Antonelli, Craveri, Ungaro, che si proponeva di avvicinare il mondo comunista a quello cattolico E' assai "curioso" notare come questa rivista sia pressochè sconosciuta e poco citata (ignorata), mentre i contenuti sarebbero degni di miglior attenzione . Forse dipende anche dal fafto che la collezione è ...... assai rara.

Ida Tarbell recounts the history of Abraham Lincoln's family for seven generations, beginning with Samuel Lincoln, who emigrated from Hingham, England to "Hingham Plantation" in the American colonies in 1637. Publisher's blurb on front of dust jacket: "The rail-splitter, poor white trash stock which has been popularly accepted as the ancestry of Abraham Lincoln does not exist. Miss Tarbell proves it. Not only does she prove it, but she tells the history of the Lincolns in America since the seventeenth century in a most fascinating way." B/w plates, facsimiles. (Stern 4110 ).

        å¯ºç”ºé€š4条5条間併合大売出シ お買物双六 [The Joint Sales Campaign in Teramachi Street between 4-jo and 5-jo. Shopping Sugoroku] [Teramachi dori shi-jo go-jo kan heigo ouridashi okaimono-sugoroku]....

      Taisho 13.1924. Large folded Japanese sugoroku or Japanese board game on paper, printed double sided, 78 x 54.5cm. Some small tears on margin, occasional browning, one small hole. Good copy of a most unusual game. This fascinating sugoroku was published to celebrate the completion of the "electric light tunnel", an impressive series of electric street lights mounted on handsome arched lamp posts lining Kyoto's Teramachi Street where the group of shops (situated between 4-jo and 5-jo) in the 寺町繁榮會 Teramachi Han'ei Kai [The Flourishing Association of Teramachi] are located. Printed double sided, the coloured side of the sheet shows many advertisements for shops in this group in the form of a sugoroku board game. On the reverse in black and white are six advertisements, the most prominent being the Futon shop's advertisement which features a bride in a kimono.The electric light project, claimed by the announcement made by Teramachi Han'ei Kai [The Flourishing Association of Teramachi] on the reverse of the sugoroku, to be the first of its kind in Japan, was designed by Dr Takeda Goichi "who is today's authority in the field of electrical engineering". The text invites shoppers to visit for the end of year sales and, of course, to enjoy walking through the "electric light tunnel". The Association further assures shoppers that all of the merchants are offering superior quality goods. They affirm their humble commitment to their three point guarantee of Quality, Inexpensive Goods and Kind Service. These small merchants, who have joined together to improve the area around their shops, wish their customers to be aware how fortunate they consider themselves to be to have the "worlds' best illumination" and they vow to work hard to justify it.The game shows the great variety of shops to be found in the group and include businesses such as a photographer, kimono shop, tansu furniture, music shop, other clothing shops and a jewellers. A fascinating glimpse into the world of modern retail in Kyoto in the 1920s! (When referring to this item please quote stockid 157239)....

        Sokrato Kvarakta Tragedio Esperanto

      Centra Presejo Esperantista - Hardcover; Mixed language; No jacket; 8vo - over 7.75" - 9.75" tall; a fair reading copy; VERY SCARCE BOOK IN ESPERANTO WITH GREAT HISTORICAL INTEREST; this volume was in the personal library of KARL MINOR (who published an Esperanto-German dictionary in 1924) - his Ex Libris label on front paste-down; some bumping and wear to boards and scuffing on spine; pages are clean with no writing or highlighting, edges browning with age; seemingly this was to be performed at the (August) 1914 World Congress of Esperanto in Paris, which was forced to disperse as it was about to begin, as the Great War erupted and Esperantists from across the world scrambled to get back to their homelands before such border-crossings became impossible.

        Les valses nobles et sentimentales" - Autograph Musical Quotation

      - An elegant AMQS from the important French composer, penned on his monogrammed stationery. Ravel has written 5 bars from his third waltz of Les Valses nobles et sentimentales, notated on a hand-drawn stave. Addressed to a Madame Catherine Parker in Chicago, with her name and address typewritten above the quotation, and dated 27 January 1924. 1 page, 4to, personal stationery; separations at folds repaired verso with cello tape, vertical fold touching holograph date with some loss, faint uneven toning. Together with a reproduction portrait photograph.The piano version of Ravel's Valses nobles et sentimentales was published in 1911, and an orchestral version was published in 1912. The title was chosen in hommage to Franz Schubert, who had released collections of waltzes in 1823 entitled Valses nobles and Valses sentimentales. The piano edition is published with a quotation of Henri de Régnier: ".le plaisir délicieux et toujours nouveau d'une occupation inutile" (the delicious and forever-new pleasure of a useless occupation). The suite contains an eclectic blend of Impressionist and Modernist music, which is especially evident in the orchestrated version.

        Zapiski poeta. Povest? [Aufzeichnungen eines Dichters. Erzählung].

      Original-Ausgabe. - Selvinsky war einer der bedeutendsten Vertreter des literarischen Konstruktivismus. Die vorliegende Erzählung ist eine Art Autobiographie des Dichters, der seine Verse hier als Werk des imaginären Lyrikers Evgeny Ney publizierte. - Berühmtheit erlangte die kleine Veröffentlichung vor allem durch die prägnante Einbandgestaltung El Lissitzkys. So nutzte er zwei fotografische Porträtaufnahmen, die er 1924 von Hans Arp fertigte, und belichtete die Negative unterschiedlich, so dass die Profilaufnahme heller und die Frontalaufnahme dunkler geriet, schließlich fügte er beide zu einem Doppelporträt zusammen. Als Hintergrund verwandte er die Dada-Zeitschrift 391, auf den Hemdkragen ließ er den Namen des imaginären Dichters setzen. - Erschienen in einer Aulage von dreitausend Exemplaren. - Die häufig fehelnde Faltkarte hier mit Einriss, sonst hervorragend erhaltenes Exemplar. - Lissitzky-Küppers 121. - Kat. Sprengel Museum 218. - Bowlt/Hernad 73. - Kat. MoMa 750. - Andel, Avantgarde Pagedesign 252.
