      Hodder and Stoughton, Limited, [1924]., 1924. First edition. Very good, clean copy without dust jacket. The "true" first edition of this collection of stories about a female criminal, and one of the rarest books published in the 20th Century. In Ellery Queen's definitive THE DETECTIVE STORY: A BIBLIOGRAPHY, he was unaware of this edition, listing only the 1935 edition under the author's successful pseudonym, Roy Vickers. Twelve stories of mystery and suspense, and each features Fidelity Dove as the lady and criminal.

        Original watercolor: "Gypsy Camp"

      ca. 1924. An attractive and evocative image by Ohio artist Earl Neff (1903-1993), an American regionalist best known for his 100-foot-long mural (still extant) in the Cleveland headquarters of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen. Neff was a prolific muralist, completing no fewer than seventeen public projects during his tenure with the Cleveland Federal Arts Project, of which he was Director from 1935-6. Neff's work is in the permanent collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Canton Museum of Art, and a number of his murals remain on public view. The current image captures an aspect of American culture that would all but disappear by the end of the Great Depression - an outdoor gypsy encampment, complete with tents and jalopies, the foreground occupied by a dark-complected, ethnically-costumed woman tending her campfire. Original graphite and watercolor sketch on thick paper, 18.5cm x 35cm (ca 7-1/2" x 13-3/4"). Apparently cut from a larger sheet; dimensions slightly uneven. Initialed, titled and dated in pencil, lower right. Colors vibrant and unfaded, free of creases, wear or soil; Fine.

        Modern French Music

      Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin Company. 1924. First. First edition. Blue cloth gilt. Embossed stamp of Virgil Thomson on title page, wear and small tears to cloth mostly along the bottom extremities, else very good. Inscribed by Hill: "To Virgil Garnett Thomson, long-suffering and diligent assistant, his friend, Edward Burlingame Hill. Christmas, 1924." Hill was an American composer, little remembered today, but his influence was great. Among his students at Harvard were Thomson, Leonard Bernstein, Roger Sessions, Elliott Carter, and Walter Piston. Although we can find no printed acknowledgment of Thomson in the book, the inscription would indicate that he had a considerable part in its creation. .

"Frank Harris (1856 – 1931) was a British-born, naturalized-American author, editor, journalist and publisher, who was friendly with many well-known figures of his day. Though he attracted much attention during his life for his irascible, aggressive personality, editorship of famous periodicals, and friendship with the talented and famous, he is remembered mainly for his multiple-volume memoir My Life and Loves, which was banned in countries around the world for its sexual explicitness." - Wikipedia [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

      London: Methuen & Co., 1924. First edition. Illustrations by Ernest H. Shepard throughout. 8vo, publisher’s original dark blue cloth, lettered and pictorially decorated in gilt on the spine and upper cover. Now handsomely presented in a blue morocco backed solander case and chemise. x,100 pp. A very pleasing and handsome copy with very minimal evidence of age. RARE FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST VOLUME ISSUED IN ONE OF THE GREATEST SERIES IN TWENTIETH CENTURY CHILDREN’S LITERATURE. The Pooh Stories of A.A. Milne stand out in the field of 20th century children’s literature. Their popularity, with both the young and the old, has only grown as the years have passed. The themes of these stories, and the gentle kindness of the characters, are forever poignant and touching. If a day ever comes when these books seem old fashion or out-of-style, one could only have pity for that future world. It should also be noted that Ernest Shepard’s illustrations for these titles are as outstanding -and as timeless - as the stories themselves. The books were originally published over the course of four years, beginning with WHEN WE WERE VERY YOUNG in 1924 and ending with HOUSE AT POOH CORNER in 1928.

        Trente ans D'Humour [Inscribed Association Copy]

      France-Edition, Paris 1924 - Inscribed by Miller to Emil Schnelluck, one of his oldest friends and one of only a handful who stayed close to Miller through the enormous changes in his life after he met June Mansfield and left his previous existence behind in almost every respect. Schnelluck had been to Europe long before Miller had, and he used to recount to Miller his memories of his visits there, which Miller eagerly soaked up. Now Miller, in Paris for the second time in October, 1930, relays this book to his friend, with a recommendation that it is "fairly easy to read and quite entertaining. Try it!" He also recounts seeing "a peach of a Huysmans yesterday on Blvd Raspail called 'Croquis de Paris.' So much to buy -- so much -- if one only had the dough!" A wonderful inscription to one of his best friends, focused on Paris and books, not to mention poverty -- the important early themes of Miller's literary life. Wrappers are missing and the inscription is on the half-title which is the first page here. Page detached from the rest of the text; extremely brittle, acidifying pages. The condition is fair, and with a risk of deterioration. Miller's underlinings and comments in the text. An excellent personal association. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

Kaufman, Marc Connelly, and the producer, Winthrop Ames, on July 17, 1924, to Maxwell Selser, a member of the original cast, "as a little souvenir of his 200th performance. " A hit on Broaway where it premiered on February 12, 1924, BEGGAR ON HORSEBACK ran for 223 performances. The film version, starring Edward Everett Horton, hit the screen in 1925. Maxwell Selser's later career included a role in the premiere of THE JAZZ SINGER. In 1938, Selser authored a comedy, EYE ON THE SPARROW, that is today remembered only because Montgomery Clift was in the cast. A very good copy with the folding newspaper insert present. Kaufman's signature is very uncommon; an excellent association copy of a wonderful play. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Plakat - Mascotte. Buchdruck.

      1924 1924 - 100 x 70 cm, Gefalzt m. zwei kleinen Fehlstellen am Rand (kein Textverlust) Typographisches Plakat des heute noch existierenden, legendären Nachtclubs in Zürich. Mascotte Direction. Otto Neumann-Hofer. Programm vom 16.-bis 31. August 1924. Paul Förster, Improvisator in sechs Sprachen; Otto Adolf Albers, Vortrag und Conférence; La plus grande vedette des Paris - Nina Myral et Robert Burnier dans leur scetch musical: « Oh Chéri? oh! Chérie»; Maria et Marta Doell neue expressionistische Tänze; Lola Abeck Sängerin; Nell Marco, Vortrags-Künstler; Arturo Cuartero, Ténor lirico español; 8 - 12 Uhr Coso-Bar Orchester « Phönix» Zürich bis 11 Uhr. Nina Myral (1884 - 1975) Sängern und Filmschauspielerin. Das heutige Mascotte ist einer der ältesten "Clubs" der Schweiz und daher auch eng mit der Geschichte des berühmten Corso-Hauses und somit auch mit der kulturellen Geschichte Zürichs verbunden.Das Corso-Haus beim Bellevue wurde zur Zeit der Jahrhundertwende gebaut, das Variété eröffnete im April 1900 an zentraler Lage seinen Betrieb. Erst gedacht als Treffpunkt und Clublokal von Vereinen und Zünften wurden schon damals bald neben Theater und allerlei Kleinkunst erste Filme vorgeführt. Schon 1916 wurde ein kleiner Nebensaal des Theaters «Palais Mascotte» genannt. In den zwanziger und dreissiger Jahren traten die bekanntesten Artisten aus Europa und Übersee im Corso auf, unter Ihnen Namen wie Josephine Baker oder der junge Louis Armstrong. Das Innere wurde 1934 total umgebaut. Damals präsentierte sich das Mascotte noch als Wiener Café, ohne den oberen Stock in sehr grosszügigem Art Deco Gewand, mit eleganten Zebra-Design-Sesseln, edlem Parkett, dem berühmten Wandbild von Max Ernst (heute im Kunsthaus zu bewundern) und in äusserst schlichtem weiss. Max Bill gestaltete den heute noch vorhandenen Corso-Schriftzug auf dem Dach. Die fünfziger und sechziger Jahre waren eine Zeit der Big Band Tanzmusik und Live-Konzerte, gefolgt von den ersten Schweizer Go Go Girls. Nach einer Renovation wurde es um 1970 von der Stadt erworben und unter Schutz gestellt. Samy Davis Jr., Hazy Osterwald oder auch Pepe Lienhard traten im «Mascotte» auf - Letzterer übernahm die Bar 1977 zusammen mit Udo Jürgens und Freddy Burger zu einer Zeit als die ersten Disco?s entstanden. Anfangs der Achtzigern war ihr «Mascotte» mit erstem Laser-Licht der Schweiz mit dem später folgenden «Roxy» die unbestritten beliebteste Disco der Stadt. Auch damals hatte man stets Besuch von Stars und Sternchen der nationalen und internationalen Show-Scene.wie Mötley Crue oder Falco. Leider konnte man mit der stets wachsenden Konkurrenz in der Folge nicht mehr mithalten und verschwand im Mittelmass.1995 führte die Eröffnung des Klubs ?Café Grössenwahn? zu kurzfristig guten Zahlen aber leider auch zum vorläufigen Ende der glamourösen Ära. 1997 eröffnete der aufwendig eingerichtete Club Paradise von Coiffeur Valentino. Bereits ein Jahr später wurde aus dem Lokal wiederum das «Mascotte» - nun ein gesichtsloser Klub, der in Zürichs umtriebigem Nachtleben in Vergessenheit geriet. Seit Februar 2004 ist man unter neuer Führung junger Club- und Gastro-Unternehmer nach erfolgreich absolviertem Umbau wieder auf gutem Weg. Mit breitgefächertem Club- und Musik-Programm, internationalen und nationalen Live-Konzerten& DJS, Show-Cases, Lesungen und sonstigen kulturellen Anlässen spricht man wieder ein interessiertes, urbanes Publikum an und knüpft ohne Zweifel wieder an den einstigen Erfolg und Glamour des so geschichtsträchtigen Hauses an. 1100 gr.
