      [New York]: King Features Syndicate, Inc., [1927]. Stapled Pamphlet. Good binding. 48pp. Printed in tabloid style, in 2 columns and on paper resembling newsprint (and possibly ghost-written by the king of tabloid writing, Jack Lait) Ruth Snyder’s Own True Story is a high point of the True Crime genre. The tale of the first woman to be executed by electrocution, Ruth’s story had all the elements to excite the public imagination -- a blonde, blue-eyed beauty in an unfulfilling marriage enters into an affair with a handsome married man (a corset salesman, no less). Together (and fueled by alcohol -- this was after all the middle of Prohibition!) they murdered Snyder’s hapless husband. Snyder supposedly wrote out her account -- her “own true story” -- in her cell at Sing-Sing, using a typewriter lent to her by Jack Lait.& Illustrated by rather grainy black and white photographs of all the players, including Snyder’s daughter. Snyder’s sensational story was the basis for James M. Cain’s Double Indemnity (adapted for the screen by Billy Wilder and Raymond Chandler). Ron Hansen’s novel A Wild Surge of Guilty Passion is based on Snyder’s story as well. Tom Howard’s actual photograph of Ruth Snyder as she’s being electrocuted made it onto the front page of the New York Daily News the next day and is one of the iconic images of the era. A scarce and fragile item (we locate only 2 institutional holdings). In the original orange wrappers, with an old scotch tape repair to the spine.

        Les réflexes conditionnels. Etude objective de l'activité nerveuse supérieure des animaux. Traduit du russe par N. et G. Grigouroff.

      Paris, Alcan, 1927. - In-8, (4), 379, (1) pp., demi-basane havane (rel. moderne), dos légèrement insolé, sinon très bon exemplaire. Première édition française, publiée la même année que la traduction anglaise. Pavlov observa, chez ses chiens d'expérimentation, qu'un agent extérieur non alimentaire (vue de l'animalier), précédant la distribution de nourriture et répétitif, constituait un signal à l'origine d'un réflexe alimentaire (salivation). Il chercha alors à reproduire et à préciser ce réflexe conditionnel par des expérimentations rigoureuses. Ivan Petrovitch Pavlov (1849-1936), né à Riazan, fit des études à la Faculté des sciences naturelles de Saint-Pétersbourg, puis à l'Académie médico-militaire. Il deviendra, à 43 ans, titulaire de la chaire de physiologie de l'Institut de médecine expérimentale. Ses travaux le conduisirent à la découverte de ces réflexes conditionnels. Il fut associé étranger de l'Académie de médecine et correspondant de l'Académie des sciences. Il obtint le prix Nobel de médecine en 1904. cf. Printing and the mind of man, 385 (edition russe) ; cf.

        Mallards At Evening

      1927 - Frank Weston Benson (1862-1951) was an American Impressionist artist, and a member of the Ten American Painters. He began his Studies at the school of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 1879, under Otto Grundmann, and later studied at the Académie Julian in Paris. Upon return to America, he would become an instructor at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. In 1888 Benson gained favorable attention in his first showing with the Society of American Artist in New York, with a piece that suggested the influence of academic Realism rather than Impressionism. By the early 1890s he began using his family as subjects; Benson later recalled having realized at the time that ¿design¿ was the most important component of painting. Consequently, works of the period provided evidence of a greater interest in patterns, silhouette, and abstract design. Late in his career, Frank Benson returned his boyhood interest in ornithological illustration. Following the 1913 Amory Show, Benson quietly moved to revolutionize the field of American sporting art. His rendering of wildlife, hunting, fishing, and camping infused the field with heightened artistic sensitivity, and reinvigorated a tradition- burdened field. Historical accounts indicate that Benson¿s teenage bird studies were extremely realistic. We can infer that they were similar to works by Alexander Pope (American, 1849-1924) and Louis Agassiz Fuertes (American, 1874-1927). Those painters concentrated on painting objects with precision. Each blue jay painted by Fuertes had exactly the same color tones and patterns. This is realism in the sense that twelve jays in a cage look precisely the same. In contrast, Benson¿s artistic training brought him to realize that a viewer¿s experience of a jay¿s appearance varies with the tint of light cast by the sky, whether the jay is front lit or back lit, and the background. Furthermore, Benson realized that we did not perceive the precise feather pattern of a bird at a distance of 20 feet. Benson had learned that our eyes perceive light, not objects, and he introduced that realization into the sporting art field. Other artists such as Roland Clark, A. L. Ripley, and Richard Bishop quickly followed his lead. In 1915 he first exhibited etchings of wild fowl, to popular acclaim. After 1920 Benson turned increasingly to the depiction of landscapes featuring wild life, an outgrowth of his interest in hunting and fishing, from then on producing a steady and profitable output of etchings and watercolors in this vein. At the request of fellow artist and conservationist Jay Norwood ¿Ding¿ Darling, Benson designed the second Federal Duck Stamp on 1935. Dry Point, 17 1/4 x 15 inches

        In the Ring and Out [inscribed By Jack Johnson]

      National Sports Publishing Company, Chicago 1927 - 259 pp. Autobiography of Jack Johnson, [1878-1946), prizefighter. "Despite the tissue of untruths that fill In the Ring¿and Out, Jack Johnson's 1927 autobiography, there is little doubt that even here he remained unyieldingly the auteur of his own mythology, that is, on the one indisputably true claim he made about the book. He wrote the book himself, without a ghost-writer. He is one of only, at best, a handful of star athletes who can say that." [Oxford Companion to African American Literature.] From the library of sportswriter Art Cohn, who famously criticisms of racial preferences in sports and published strong criticisms of Avery Brundage and the U. S. Olympic Committee on their behalf. "Art dedicated his career to making sports truly All-American." This copy inscribed "To Ralph My friend from a fair heavyweight Jack Johnson." Johnson opened the Club de Luxe in New York in 1920; this became the Cotton Club when taken over by Owney Madden in 1923, and Ralph Capone, brother of Al Capone, later opened a Chicago branch of the club. One might fairly state that Ralph Capone was the only person known throughout Chicago as just "Ralph" at that time, and Johnson usually inscribed his books with both a first and last name of the recipient, and only Ralph Capone was well known enough to be addressed only as "Ralph". Records show that Johnson knew many of the famous gangsters of the 1920's thru 1940's, so this may have been inscribed to Ralph Capone. If it was inscribed to Capone, it may be the only book ever inscribed to him. Worn but solid, hinges tight, spine gilt present but weak, point of fraying at top of rear spine edge, a few small light dampspots, no other names or marks. No Dust jacket.

        ARABIA DESERTA A Topographical Itinerary / American Geographical Society / Oriental Exploration and Studies No. 2

In the years 1887-1891 he studied at the Theological faculty of Olomouc, and was consecrated a priest in 1891. He received his doctorate in theology in 1895. In the years 1895 to 1898, he studied at the Dominican Bible School in Jerusalem, and at the Jesuit University of St. Joseph in Beirut. He traveled extensively throughout the Arab world and kept coming back to it until 1917, collecting a huge body of scientific material. During World War I, he was sent to the Middle East to mitigate British attempts to instigate a revolution against Turkey, thus making him an opponent of T. E. Lawrence. After the war he became a professor at Charles University in Prague. In cooperation with the American industrialist Charles Richard Crane, he published his works in English (see Wikipedia). This copy with the signature on the front endpaper of the scholar and Arab Studies professor, Dr. Louise Sweet. A few of her pencilled notations to the contents.

        The World Crisis: 1916-1918, Parts I & II, exceedingly rare, jacketed "traveller's" copies issued before the first printing of the normal trade editions

      Thornton Butterworth Limited, London 1927 - "The World Crisis" is Winston Churchill's epic and acclaimed history of the First World War, in which he played such a critical, controversial, and varied role. The set was originally published as six individual books between 1923 and 1931. The 1916-1918 Part I & Part II books of 1927 comprise the middle of the set. Any World Crisis first editions in dust jackets are quite rare, but offered here may be the rarest to be had - jacketed "traveller's" copies of the British first edition of the two 1916-1918 books, Parts I & II, which were issued even before the normal first edition, first printing. Per Churchill Bibliographer Ronald Cohen, "There exists an early, and extremely rare, issue of the volume without the Index, described by the publisher on a tipped-on typed label on the title pages and dust jackets of both Parts as a 'ROUGH PRINTED COPY / For traveller's use only and not for sale'." Here is the only such set we have ever seen offered with the original dust jackets. Contents and pagination are identical to the first edition, first printings (including all maps, charts, etc.) with two exceptions: omission of the seven-page index at the end of Part II and lack of the errata at the Part II half-title. These two omissions confirm that issuance of these "traveller's" copies preceded the normal British first trade printings. The print itself is slightly lighter, but otherwise identical and the volumes themselves bulk slightly thicker. The blue cloth bindings differ only in being a slightly brighter shade of dark blue than the dark navy of the normal British first trade printings. The dust jackets are identical in content and size to those of the normal first printing. However, of special note, the jackets are printed on the same thick, light greenish paper as the first printing of the 1911-1914 volume, rather than the notoriously acidic and brittle yellowish grey paper of the normal British first trade printings, making these jackets unique variants. The dust jackets each bear a 3.25 inch wide by .75 inch tall typed label affixed to the front face of the dust jackets, as specified by Ronald Cohen, reading: "ROUGH PRINTED COPY / For traveller's use only and / not for sale". Identical labels are affixed to each title page. The Part II labels both have an additional notation in pencil "*without the Index". It is difficult to overstate the scarcity of these very special, jacketed volumes. Condition is very good plus in very good minus dust jackets. The blue cloth bindings are tight, clean, and square with sharp corners and bright spine gilt, and only minimal wear to extremities. The contents of both volumes show transfer browning to the endpapers corresponding to the dust jacket flaps. There are no inscriptions or previous ownership marks. Internal spotting is light and intermittent, primarily confined to the prelims. The page edges of both volumes are spotted with some minor soiling to the top and fore edges. The dust jackets are substantially complete, with some chipping at the spine ends, corners, and folds. The rear hinge of the Part I dust jacket is split; an ancient strip of deteriorated cellotape has been carefully removed, leaving a bit of residue. The Part II front face has a faint, roughly 3 inch circular moisture stain at the top center (that does not affect the binding beneath). Both jackets are now protected beneath removable, archival quality clear covers backed with acid-free paper. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A69.2(III-1&2), Woods/ICS A31(ab)3a&3b.

        The World Crisis, 1916-1918, Volumes I & II, immaculate jacketed first editions in the very rare publisher's slipcase

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1927 - We are pleased to offer Churchill collectors a spectacular, jacketed U.S. first edition set of the 1916-1918 volumes of Churchill's The World Crisis in the extravagantly rare original publisher's slipcase. The World Crisis is Winston Churchill's epic history of the First World War, in which he played such a critical, controversial, and varied role. Churchill was in a special position to write this history, having served both in the Cabinet and on the Front. First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 until 1915, after the failure in the Dardanelles and the slaughter at Gallipoli, Churchill was scapegoated and forced to resign. He spent political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Before war's end, Churchill was exonerated and rejoined the Government, but the stigma would linger. Churchill may have meant for his history of the First World War to clear his name, but his six volume masterwork far exceeds this purpose. The U.S. is the true first edition, as U.S. Volume I publication preceded the British. Both the U.S. and British editions were originally published as six individual books between 1923 and 1931. Today, jacketed first editions are remarkably scarce - jacketed U.S. editions even more so. Perhaps most scarce is the original U.S. publisher's slipcase for the 1916-1918 first editions; Charles Scribner's Sons originally issued the two 1916-1918 volumes as a boxed set. The cardboard slipcase bears three pasted labels. A large, 8.25 x 5.75 inch label printed dark red on ivory on the right side of the slipcase bears an extensive blurb about Churchill and the work. A smaller label on the upper spine of the slipcase, likewise printed dark red on ivory, measures 4 x 3.25 inches and bears the title, author, and publisher. A bright orange label on the lower portion of the slipcase spine measuring 3.75 x 3 inches bears black ink print advertising Churchill's preceding World Crisis volumes. These original slipcases are almost never seen. We know of no other dealer who has offered a slipcased set. Here is an absolutely pristine, as new first edition set of the 1916-1918 volumes in fine dust jackets, housed in the original publisher's slipcase. The books themselves are as-new. The bindings are immaculate and improbably bright, with absolutely no wear or flaws to report. The contents are likewise pristine - unreservedly crisp, bright, and clean. The books are clearly unread and appear in virtually the same condition as when they were issued in 1927. We note only a tiny Boston bookseller sticker on the lower left ffep of each volume. The dust jackets are truly fine examples. Both are unclipped, retaining the "$10.00 Two Volumes" price on the front flap. Both jackets are entirely complete with no losses. Trivial flaws are limited to slight toning to the jacket spines, a hint of wear at the spine ends, and a faint one inch scratch to the Volume II lower spine (but no tear). We have fitted both dust jackets with removable, archival quality clear covers. The original publisher's slipcase has done its job protecting the spectacular books and dust jackets within, but has born some expected age and wear in the process. Nonetheless, the slipcase is entirely complete and still in one piece, with all three publisher's labels fully intact. Six of the eight seams are intact; only the short upper and lower horizontal seams at the back of the slipcase are split. There is wear at the opening edges, fraying at the split upper and lower rear seams, and light overall soiling. The slipcase is original and unrestored, but the seam splits are easily repaired with archival tape, at which point the slipcase will regain structural integrity. This beautiful slipcased set is a rare prize for collectors and about as early in the canon as a Churchill collector seeking jacketed first editions can reasonably expect to go.

        Photo Album - BRAZIL - Voyage to South America

      South America 1927 - Brazil, 1927. Photographs of a voyage to Brazil on the RMS Franconia, features vivid, nostalgic images from the end of the Old Republic, which was also a time of increasing social movements, and the dawn of revival. Qto. Oblong album, recent green cloth 3 post binding with label, contains 71 photographs measuring approximately 4.75 x 3.75 inches, captioned in manuscript, mounted onto 9 grey cardstock leaves. (52 photographs of Brazil, 3 of Montevideo, 15 of Martinique) Occasional mild sun fading, otherwise in very good condition, with crisp and captivating images. The era in which these travellers arrived in Brazil is known as the Old Republic (1889-1930), the First Brazilian Republic or República Velha, which ended in 1930 with a military coup that installed Getúlio Vargas as dictator. Claiming to be a constitutional democracy though democracy was nominal, positive developments were still made. Under the Old Republic, for example, growth in urban middle sectors was achieved in spite of battles against entrenched oligarchy. Growing trade, commerce, and industry in São Paulo undermined the the republic's politics dominated by the landed gentries of the coffee industry. The same was achieved in Minas Gerais, which was politically dominated by dairy interests. The divergence of interests was intensifying between the coffee oligarchs who were devastated by the Depression, and the burgeoning urban sectors. The 1920s revolt against the seating of Artur da Silva Bernardes as president signaled the beginning of a struggle by the urban bourgeoisie to seize power from the coffee-producing oligarchy. Subsequqently, disparate social reform movements would increase in the 1920s, ultimately culminating in the Revolution of 1930.
