        L'ITALIANO Diretto da Leo Longanesi. Rivista settimanale della gente fascista.

      Bologna,, 1926-1930.. Di questo importante periodico fondato da Leo Longanesi, offriamo una preziosa e rara raccolta dal 1926 (Anno I) al 1930 (Anno V), quasi completa. Si tratta dell?'edizione in folio (mm. 500x365) per gli anni 1926-29 e, in-4 (mm. 360x250), per l?'annata 1930, così composta: - 1926 (anno I): n. 1 (14 gen.) - 2 (28 gen.) - 3 (11 feb,) - 8 (3 giu.) - 12/13 (7 ott.) - 14/15 (15 nov.) // "Mancano": nn. 4- 5- 6 -7 - 9 - 10 - 11 - 16/17. - 1927 (Anno II): n. 1/2 (15 febbr.) - 3/4 (21 mar.) - 7/8/9 (30 giu.) - 10/11 (31 lugl.) - 12/13 (30 sett.) - 14/15 (8 nov.) - 16/17 con il Lunario (ultimo num. 20 dic.) // "Manca" n. 5/6. - 1928 (Anno III): n. 1/2 (15 febbr.) - 3/4/5 (15 apr.) - 6/7 (28 magg.) - 8/9 (28 giu.) - 10/11 (24 lugl.) - 12/13 (15 ott.) - 14/15 (30 nov.) - 16/17 (31 dic.). Completo. - 1929 (Anno IV): n. 1 (31 genn.) - 2/3/4 (19 mar.) - 5/6 (17 apr.) - 7/8 (12 magg.) - 9/10 (20 giu.) - 11/12 (1 sett.) - 13/14 (30 sett.) - 15/16 (30 ott.) - 17/18 (ultimo num. 15 dic.). Completo. - 1930 (anno V): n. 1 (9 genn.) - 2/3 (28 febb.) - 4 (15 mar.) - 5/6 (17 apr.) - 7/8 (15 magg.) - 9/10 (giu.) - 11/12 (31 lugl.) - 13 (15 ago.) - 14/15 (15 sett.) - 16/17 (28 ott.) - 18/19 (28 nov.) - 20/21 (30 dic.). Completo. Fondato a Bologna nel 1926, la sua pubblicazione (in formati diversi) si protrasse fino al 1942 a Roma, ma non ebbe mai una periodicità regolare: all'inizio il sottotitolo recava la scritta "?"settimanale della gente fascista", poi "foglio quindicinale", più tardi "foglio mensile" ed infine, dall'aprile del 1932, semplicemente "periodico". L?'edizione in folio, impaginato su 4 colonne, si distingue per l?'eleganza nella composizione, arricchita dall?'uso dei disegni, quasi sempre satirici e, nella prima fase, di mano sia di Longanesi che di Mino Maccari. Con il n. 1 del 9 gennaio 1930 diminuisce il formato e aumenta il numero delle pagg. che passano da 4 a 12. A partire dal marzo 1931 fino al dicembre 1942, l?'"Italiano" viene pubblicato in formato ?"quaderno?", per un totale di 70 numeri. Le prime 4 annate (nel formato in folio) presentano delle lievi manc. nelle piegature in 6 numeri, mentre il V anno (formato in-4), ha la prima pag. del n. 20 restaur. al marg. infer. per mancanza. Complessivam. esempl. ben conservato. .

        The Great Gatsby

      London: Chatto & Windus. (1926). First. First English edition. Dark blue cloth gilt, the primary binding (there were two later bindings: tan and light blue, thought to be remainder bindings). Miniscule tear at the crown and a bit of rubbing on the boards, still a very good or better copy lacking the very rare dustwrapper (at the time of publication of the bibliography Bruccoli had not seen one, but we subsequently located and sold it to him). The much rarer first English edition of an American classic with, according to various sources, as few as 1500 to 3000 copies printed versus 20,870 of the American edition. Fitzgerald's perception of the lack of support he received from his English publishers was the source of great consternation to him. According to one source: "On 15 June 1925, William Collins, Fitzgerald's English publisher for This Side of Paradise and The Beautiful and Damned, turned down The Great Gatsby, declaring that "to publish The Great Gatsby would be to reduce the number of his readers rather than to increase them." A rarity. Connolly 100. .

To Jesse Lasky, in New York City: "Enclosed is a letter I received from Percival Wren, the author of BEAU GESTE. I am also sending a copy to Mr. Zukor. I do this not because of any reference to me but rather because of what he says about yourself and Mr. Zukor as American Producers. You once said.that it was your ambition to produce a picture which could be released on the same day and date in every principal city in the world. It is naturally my ambition to direct this picture.What we all did with Beau Geste Proves that we Americans can produce a picture which will appeal equally to every Anglo-Saxon mind in the world."; Paramount Pictures released "Beau Geste" on August 1, 1927, directed by Herbert Brenon. The cast included Ronald Colman, Neil Hamilton, Ralph Forbes and Alice Joyce. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      Vienna: Horizont 1926 - Quarto 24x16.5cm, wrappers, 115 pp. plus 9 plates. Kassák published this book (Book of Purity) as his final statement in exile from Vienna. His journal Ma had been closed for financial reasons, and he was longing to return to Budapest. This book is a summing up of his previous seven years including his Activizmus, the Bildarchitektur-Képarchitektura in visual statements and book design, poetry, fiction and manifestos. It includes a fine cover design of his own and experimental typography, the constructivist book design he he had initiated in Vienna with the Ma journal which would excel in over the coming decade and some adverts as well as abstract work. It is acknowledged to be one of his most important books during the avant-garde era. Worldcat notes only two copies of this first edition in North America.

        Windsor Farms

      Richmond, Virginia.: Windsor Farms, Incorporated.. 1926.. Attractive lithographed real estate map (black and white and two shades of green) for the planned Richmond, Virginia, community established in the 1920s. Descriptive text on map reads: "Windsor Farms A Residential Development on the James River at Richmond...Henrico Co...Virginia made for Windsor Farms Inc. Richmond Va. by Allen J. Saville, Inc. Engineering and Construction." Map is approximately 32 3/4 x 27 1/2 inches and has been folded, with breaks in the paper at a number of fold intersections, occasionally with modest paper loss. The most significant damage is an eight inch separation along one of the fold lines. Verso of the map is blank. The numerous properties in the development are notated as to size, with many of them featuring a check mark in blue pencil, no doubt indicating that the property has been sold. Scattered about the map are approximately 14 areas denoted in solid green and inscribed with the term "Reserved," thus preserving various areas of habitat within the community. Centrally located on the map is a plot identified as "Community Center"; elsewhere are located several palatial homes on large parcels of land: these are "Nordley," "Virginia House," and "Agecroft Hall" (the last two are sixteenth century English manor houses, dismantled and the materials crated and sent to Windsor Farms where they were reconstructed in the mid-twenties). The Kanawa Canal, the Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad, and the James River are featured prominently at the bottom of the map. Windsor Farms has retained its identify as a high-end, much sought-after residential community, minutes from downtown or the West End. The vintage map is in good condition, with issues noted. .

        TYPED LETTER SIGNED (TLS). 1 1/2 pages on letter-size paper (with 1 1/2 inches trimmed from bottom), signed in black ink, "F. B. Long, Jr.", with five-line handwritten postscript, dated 8 October 1929, to "Dear Mr. Derleth" [August Derleth].

      - Long's first letter to Derleth, written in reply to one from Derleth. As Long mentions here, he had heard about Derleth from H. P. Lovecraft (whom he had known at this point for almost ten years; he would remain one of HPL's best friends) and says here that he had occasionally thought of writing him "but during the past few months I've been too morbidly depressed to enter into an extended correspondence with anyone." Promising to "discuss the tales you mention at length in a few days" -- tales by Long? by Derleth? by others? -- he mentions the demands of other work, including "a series of articles that I very unwisely agreed to undertake for a vile subway magazine on a commission basis." In his postscript he agrees to send Derleth a copy of his book, THE MAN FROM GENOA, a 31-page collection of poems published in 1926 by Paul Cook in Athol, Mass. (famous also as the publisher, or at least printer, of Lovecraft's THE SHUNNED HOUSE). "I would gladly give you a copy, but I still owe the publisher a substantial commission on all sales. It retails for a 1.25 -- but you may merely send me a dollar." "The writing style is both formless and inflated, very much the work of a young man still looking for his own voice and under the influence of Lovecraft, who, at this point, tended towards a stilted tone in his letters. Nevertheless, an interesting document by one of the more important spokes in the Lovecraft circle. If HPL was its center, then Derleth, in his later capacity as publisher at Arkham House, formed its circumference." - Robert Eldridge. Faint fold creases and minor edge nicks, very good overall.
