        An Elucidation. Printed in Transition.

      Paris: Transition, April 1927 - 8 page pamphlet, staple-bound. Original yellow wrappers printed in black. Housed in a custom artist's solander case. Wrappers tanned and very lightly rubbed. An excellent copy. First separate edition, offprinted from the Transition literary magazine. Presentation copy inscribed by Stein on the verso of the upper wrapper, "To Jamie Sabartes from Gertrude Stein". Sabartes was a poet and the friend and long-time assistant of Pablo Picasso. Stein's poem "An Elucidation" was originally printed in the first issue of Transition, which "while containing the correct words, presented them in the wrong order (through an inadvertence in the printing establishment)"(editor Elliot Paul's introduction to the present). This offprint was included as a supplement loosely inserted in the first issue to correct the mistake and is now rare, particularly so inscribed. Wilson A10. [Attributes: First Edition]

        RUTH SNYDER';S OWN TRUE STORY. "THIS IS THE ONLY TRUE AND AUTHORIZED STORY OF MY LIFE--SO HELP ME GOD!"

      King Features Syndicate, Inc, [New York] 1927 - 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. Good binding.

A stunning copy in the striking four-color pictorial dust. jacket which is virtually as new save for just a hint of age-. darkening to the spine panel. (#90499). First edition in English. The first printing without mention of this title in list of Readers Library books on page [7]. Novelization of the screenplay by Fritz Lang and Thea von Harbou of Lang's 1926 UFA film which was about three hours long in it's original seventeen-reel version. "Though often described as the first SF epic of the cinema, this famous German film -- of which no complete version now exists -- has just as much in common with the cinema of the Gothic. Though set in a future visually emphasized by towering buildings and vast brooding machines, the city of Metropolis has an underworld dark and medieval in atmosphere ... The story of METROPOLIS is trite and its politics ludicrously simplistic; but these flaws cannot detract from the sheer visual power of the film -- a combination of the high Expressionistic sets (the work of art directors Otto Hunte, Erich Kettelhut and Karl Vollbrecht) and Lang's direction ... METROPOLIS, which was extremely expensive and not a financial success, almost bankrupted the studio that made it (UFA). The film was cut almost as soon as it was released, and -- still in the 1920s -- shortened yet more radically in the UK and USA. Even recently restored archival versions are half an hour shorter than the original." - Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (1993), p. 804-5.

Aschenbecher, werden heute noch in unveränderter Form hergestellt. 1929 machte sie ihren Abschluss mit Diplom und arbeitete im Bau-Atelier von Walter Gropius in Berlin mit. Danach wurde sie Leiterin der Entwurfsabteilung bei der Metallwarenfabrik Ruppelwerke in Gotha und erneuerte dort das gesamte Programm, das für den Massenbedarf bestimmt war.

        THE TWENTY THIRD PSALM. Illustrated by Paul Paschetto. Rome, Privately Printed, 1927.

      - Splendida pubblicazione, in formato cm.38,8x33,4, composta da 30 pagine doppie. Legatura originale in piena pergamena con immagine di Cristo, con una pecora in spalla, impressa in tricromia al piatto anteriore. Dorso a quattro nervature. Il testo, in lingua inglese, comprende una Prefazione di Enrico Sartorio, il testo del Salmo XXXIII impresso in rosso e nero e nove tavole silografiche impresse in bianco e nero e applicate. Ogni tavola riporta la sigla dell'Autore apposta a matita in forma circolare, con l'indicazione, sempre a matita, dell'anno di stampa. A fronte di esse altrettante tavole in bicromia che ripetono il testo del Salmo. Un ricco fregio silografico anche all'inizio e in fine al volume. Tiratura limitatissima di 100 copie numerate e firmate da Paschetto. Il nostro è l'esemplare n°21, offerto a Pietro Fedele. Con dedica manoscritta: "A S.E. Pietro Fedele, con rispettosa devozione, Enrico Sartorio. Giorno di San Pietro 1928". Stupenda raffigurazione grafica del cosiddetto "Salmo del buon pastore", in spettacolari condizioni di conservazione. "Paolo Paschetto, di famiglia valdese, nacque il 12 febbraio 1885 a Torre Pellice, in provincia di Torino, dove è morto il 9 marzo 1963. Si diplomò' all'Istituto di Belle Arti di Roma. Ancora studente comincio' ad esporre alle Promotrici romane ed alla Quadriennale di Torino. Professore di Ornato all'Istituto di Belle Arti di Roma dal 1914 al 1948, fu artista polivalente, passando dalla xilografia alla grafica, dall'olio all'affresco, dalla pittura religiosa al paesaggio. Svolse un'intensa attivita' nel campo delle arti grafiche, collaborando con le principali case editrici e istituti d'arte grafica e pubblicando opere su riviste. Risalgono al 1900 le sue prime xilografie di soggetto vario (paesaggi, ex libris, illustrazioni); dal 1910 in poi i suoi legni trattarono per lo piu' temi religiosi, tra queste: Il Credo Apostolico (otto grandi legni), Il Salmo del buon Pastore (otto legni), Il Padre Nostro (otto legni), Costumi valdesi. E' di questo periodo la decorazione, eseguita da Paschetto, del Tempio Valdese di Roma in Piazza Cavour, che, sempre sottolineando il legame ideale fra evangelici e protocristiani, si ispira liberamente alle basiliche paleocristiane, con motivi di chiara ascendenza liberty. Gli evangelici, rompendo una tradizione nata come reazione all'abuso di decorazioni, capace di destare nei fedeli forme eccessive di religiosità, tornavano ad esprimere la loro fede con il linguaggio artistico, imitando anche in questo i cristiani dei primi secoli. Il grande tempio fu ufficialmente inaugurato, dopo tre anni di lavori, l'8 febbraio 1914. Sempre su cartoni del Paschetto vennero realizzate le vetrate, che per il valore di testimonianza ed insegnamento loro attribuito dall'autore, secondo l'uso antico, rappresentano il vero fulcro di tutta la decorazione, in cui l'atmosfera creata dai giochi floreali delle alte trifore sostiene lo svelarsi attraverso i simboli biblici del ricco contenuto della fede. Dal 1925 Paolo Paschetto si dedicò anche alla pittura di paesaggio, senza abbandonare la xilografia da lui prediletta. Partecipò a numerose mostre italiane ed estere e tenne personali a Roma, Torino, Biella, Pinerolo, Verona. Fu autore, tra l'altro, di numerosi francobolli, compresa "la rondine" della prima emissione italiana di posta aerea e dell'emblema, simbolo ufficiale della Repubblica Italiana dal 5 maggio 1948. Nel 1947 venne indetto dalla Costituente un concorso per l'emblema della Repubblica: vi parteciparono 341 concorrenti con 637 disegni e la commissione scelse la soluzione di Paschetto che rappresentava una cinta turrita con una porta aperta al centro, completata dalla figurazione del mare e di una stella raggiante; l'emblema era circondato da una corona di ulivo con le parole "Unità e Libertà". L'originario bozzetto gli venne piu' volte cambiato ed infine stravolto per esigenze araldiche, politiche, pratiche. Fu, comunque, un impegno che stimolò un certo lato [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Ballad of the Brown Girl. An Old Retold.

      New York and London: Harper & Brothers 1927 - 8vo., black cloth and beige boards, with paper spine label printed in black. First edition. One of five hundred copies, especially issued by "Opportunity Journal of Negro Life." The Dedication Copy, marked “A” (with the printed dedication: “To Witter Bynner”) and inscribed: “To Witter – For whom this poem was written, with no thought of the pleasurable friendship it would bring. Sincerely, Countee Cullen,” on the extra colophon leaf; with Bynner’s library bookplate ----- Witter Bynner (1881-1968) once concocted an esoteric rating to evaluate Countee Cullen’s first volume of verse, Color. Using zeros and wing-shaped marks, the Brooklyn-born bard and editor graded each poem (poor, average, good, excellent): 36 scored zero; 13, one wing; 7, two wings; and one (“Incident”), three wings. The 1925 assessment reflected Bynner’s own lofty standards and honest perception of Cullen’s writing. Two years earlier in the Witter Bynner Undergraduate Poetry Contest, the New York University sophomore disappointingly won “honorable mention” for “The Ballad of the Brown Girl” by judges Carl Sandburg, Alice Corbin, and Bynner. According to biographer David Levering Lewis, in November (two months before The Crisis announced the contest winners), Bynner had discreetly consoled Cullen about being outvoted in ceding the poem top prize. When the exquisitely crafted tale about a doomed interracial relationship was published in 1927, Bynner inherited the first copy. Although the pages were never cut, the dedicatee’s memory was unquestionably clear: still present on the title page is the faint imprint of three wing-shaped marks.
