        Gothic and Renaissance Bookbindings exemplified and illustrated from the author's collection. [ 2 vols, complete set, limited "edition de luxe" with 50 additional photographs. ]

      Walter Lewis at the Cambridge University Press, London, first edition - "edition de luxe" 1928 - One of 50 copies comprising the "Edition de Luxe" which contained an additional 50 photographs of bindings not reproduced in the ordinary copies. 2 vols, cloth, 4to, 27 cm, 369 pp + x pp, 110 plates, [50] photographs, Scarce in this "Edition de Luxe". Vol . 1 Text. Vol. 2 Plates, & Photographs. From a contemporary review of the ordinary edition by A.W. Pollard : " Mr. Goldschmidt . Is in the fortunate position of having been able to build up a collection of such evidential value that in cataloguing it he has laid the foundations for a far better history of bookbinding than has yet been written. In his long introduction he shows himself worthy of his good fortune, for he writes as a philosophic historian, not merely telling his readers the facts, but showing how they came to happen, and why they could not have happened before they did. Mr. Goldschmidt's book is so full of new facts and new ideas that it needs prolonged study of it before any one brought up in the old tradition can master it sufficiently to offer detailed criticism. But I feel fairly confident that if ten years hence criticism has seriously modified any of his contentions it will only be as to details. His book marks another milestone in getting the history of bookbinding on to right lines, and he is to be most heartily congratulated on his achievement. The 110 plates with which it is illustrated are a delight." Breslauer refers to "Goldschmidt's book as a "work of immense learning". Copy No. 36. The Edition de Luxe has 50 additional photographs of bindings described in the text, which are appended to the 110 plates of the ordinary edition in Volume 2 (together with a 2-page list of the photographs).

        Litíce: povídky o vojně [The Furies: stories about the war]. Signed and inscribed by the author

      Prague: Aventinum, 1928. Octavo (19.3 × 12.3 cm). Original printed wrappers; 159, [5] pp. Signed and inscribed by Weiner on the half title. Wrappers very lightly sun-toned and creased; still a highly attractive copy, very good or better. Second edition of Weiner's first book of prose, considered to be the first work of Czech literature inspired by modern warfare and the horrors of World War I. Weiner (1884-1937) was a Czech Jew who began his journalistic and literary career after moving to Paris in 1912, but happened to witness the outbreak of the War while in Prague. A recent article notes that Weiner had "intimate knowledge of shell-shock in its most literal form: he saw active service in Bosnia in 1912 and in Serbia in 1914. Indeed, his second tour of duty ended in a nervous breakdown, and in early 1915 he returned to Prague" (Peter Zusi, "States of Shock: Kafka and Richard Weiner," 135). Weiner published both poetry and prose throughout the 1910-20s, in a stylistically complex, psychologically probing, and fundamentally abstract style that has invited comparisons to Franz Kafka since at least the 1930s. While his early work is marked by expressionism, Weiner became influenced by surrealism in the late 1920s, after once again settling in Paris. Evidently some passages of Litice were too risque for the censor, who cut entire paragraphs, and the 1916 first edition was printed with visual omissions; this second edition first presented the complete text. Weiner is still little known outside the Czech Republic, although recent years have seen more attention, following the translation of his "The Game for Real" into English. Scarce, especially signed. KVK, OCLC show copies at Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin, British Library, Indiana, UCL, Zurich, and Ljubljana.

        Importante correspondance de l'artiste et poétesse Elsa Koeberlé.

      - 16 lettres autographes signées 48 In-4 et in-8 [Vers 1928-1940] On joint 3 longues lettres de sa compagne Genia Lioubow, une photographie originale d’un tableau d’Elsa Koeberlé, ainsi que 12 enveloppes autographes avec timbres et marques postales. La plupart des lettres sur papier bleu, parfois à l’adresse d’Elsa Koeberlé. Bon état, pliures. Cette importante correspondance adressée par l'artiste Elsa Koeberlé à Maurice Feuillet et à son épouse témoigne de sa grande amitié avec le couple : « Vous êtes mille fois aimable de m'avoir envoyé ces ravissantes couleurs et je vous en remercie bien vivement. » Koeberlé apporte son soutien à Feuillet dans sa campagne contre l'art moderne : « Nous avons lu avec grand intérêt le vibrant article de M. Feuillet dans Le Gaulois illustré. Quelle merveilleuse idée il a eu de mettre les images côte à côte. C'est la plus indéniable preuve de ce qui fait l'objet de son texte et de sa fureur vengeresse ! Mais tout de même, le petit veau fauve "cubiste" est très fini lui aussi. Je me réjouis, nous nous réjouissons, de la suite. » Pour Elsa Koeberlé, qui vit à Villeneuve-lès-Avignon, Maurice Feuillet représente à l'évidence un lien essentiel avec la vie artistique parisienne, y compris pour les menus détails de son quotidien de peintre : « Si cela ne vous dérangeait pas trop, vous m'obligeriez grandement si vous pouviez me faire expédier de chez Morin & Ganet – puisque vous les connaissez – et contre remboursement bien entendu les couleurs en poudre que voici (vous direz que c'est pour peindre à l'oeuf). » Il est également pour elle un appui indéniable. Elsa Koeberlé est une poétesse et artiste fréquentant les milieux artistiques et littéraires ; elle s'est retiré à l'abbaye Saint-André à Villeneuve-lès-Avignon, qu'elle a restauré avec sa compagne Genia Lioubow.

        The Country Bus Services Map.

      Waterlow & Sons, 1928]., [London, - Gill's bus map Chromolithograph map, mounted on linen on original rollers. Gill's rare poster map advertising the bus services from London to the Home Counties. The text around the map reads: "Far flung are our bus routes, they here are displayed. They mean nought to you! We are not dismayed. There are thousands of citizens who love the fresh air. Hundreds not misers will pay debonair. But they must remember to clear their waste paper. Dry bottles and what not at the end of their caper. So there!" Leslie MacDonald Gill (1884- 1947) was a noted graphic designer, cartographer, artist and architect. Born in Brighton, he was the younger brother of Eric Gill, one of the leading figures of the Arts and Crafts movement. In 1914 his "Wonderground Map", commissioned by Frank Pick, and hung at every station, helped to save the London Underground by presenting an accurate map which also had a humorous side in cartoon style. Produced in poster form, it was also made available for sale to members of the public and proved to be very popular. Elder brother Eric, who at that time was engaged in a commission for Westminster Cathedral, was included at the bottom of the map. He also designed of the standard upper case lettering used on headstones and war memorials by the Imperial War Graves Commission. But it is perhaps his illustrated maps for which he is most well known. These maps have featured in a series of exhibitions including Magnificent Maps exhibition in 2010 at the British Library, an exhibition MacDonald Gill, Out of the Shadows in 2011 at the University of Brighton and at the Mind the Map exhibition in 2012 at the London Transport Museum.

        Six Original Costume Designs.

      1928 Six designs, three signed and dated. Pencil, ink & watercolour on card, mounted into six compartments, each approx. 30 x 20cm. Framed & glazed, 76 x 77cm.Herbert Norris, 1875?-1950, was an occasional actor, costume designer and consultant who worked in the theatre and on films as well as pageants, and as advisor to Madame Tussauds. He was a pupil of the celebrated theatrical designer Wilhelm (pseudonym of William Charles Pitcher) and then developed his own career working for Nathans and producing his best known works, a series of attractively illustrated books on historical costume. These designs, dated 1828, are of the period of the musical Song of the Sea staged at His Majesty's Theatre in October 1928 based on the story of Emma Hamilton. However they do not correspond with photographs of the production. Norris's archive is held at the University of Bristol Theatre Collection.

        Archive of World War One letters and documents relating to a Polish immigrant's service in the 26th Infantry Division's 104th Infantry Regiment and his death at Belleau Woods on the first day of the Aisne-Marne Offensive

      Massachusetts and France, 1928. This grouping consists of 58 items: * Seven letters written by Kocienski while in France (two of the letters are written in Polish; one letter is damaged and incomplete), * One packet of 30 documents, letters, and notes related to his death and the payment of federal next-of-kin benefits (including Kocienski's official naturalization certificate, death notification, and letters written by his commander), * One packet of 15 documents, letters, and notes related to payment of Massachusetts next-of-kin benefits, * Four letters related to payment of War Risk Insurance benefits, and * Two miscellaneous letters, one regarding the publication of a Gold Star memorial book and the other regarding a reunion of the 104th Infantry Regiment. Kocienski, born in what is today Poland in 1896, immigrated to the United States in 1912 and settled in Haydensville, Massachusetts where he lived with first cousin, Mary Antowska. The cousins had been exceptionally close since early childhood and had always referred to each other as brother and sister. When Kocienski enlisted in Army in early 1917, he named Mary as his beneficiary for all family and insurance allotments. Kocienski, born in what is today Poland in 1896, immigrated to the United States in 1912 and settled in Haydensville, Massachusetts where he lived with first cousin, Mary Antowska. The cousins had been exceptionally close since early childhood and had always referred to each other as brother and sister. When Kocienski enlisted in Army in early 1917, he named Mary as his beneficiary for all family and insurance allotments. Kocienski's letters to Mary include descriptions of Army life in a combat unit and trench warfare: "We lost a few men but we slain about two hundred Germans and we taken number of prisoners and us taken a number of prisoners. . . . We have just came out of the trenches. I suppose you have heard about the good work our regiment is doing in the front line trenches. We have had some pretty hart times. . . When we are off duty we stay in dugouts . . . we have to be very careful of shells because they are very dangerous if they strik anywhere near you, you are out of luck. When we hear the report of the gun over in the German lines we can almost tell by the sound where the shell is going so we have quite a lot of time to jump for cover . . . if we happen to be out in the middle of a field . . . we just drop flat on our stomachs. . . . The hardest part [is] to stand on guard all night watching and listening. . . . Sometimes you hear a noise that sounds like a big German and pull you rifle up to shoot and the first thing you hear is the squek of a rat it makes your hair stand on end. . . . I thought I saw a lot of big rats in the U.S. but the rats up around the trenches are the biggest I have ever seen or heard of. They live in the dugouts too, and when you go to bed at night they have a fine time running up and down your legs and face." The 104th Infantry first saw combat in April of 1918, and the entire unit was awarded the French Croix de Guerre for exceptional bravery and courage. In July of 1918, the 26th Division relieved the 2nd Division at Belleau Wood, where the 104th was almost immediately shelled with heavy high explosives and drenched in mustard gas. On the 18th, the regiment helped lead the attack during the Second Battle of the Marne in the Aisne-Marne Offensive. Kocienski was severely wounded in the initial assault and evacuated for medical attention, however he could not later be found and was listed for months as missing in action. Eventually, Mary was notified that he was killed and buried in an American cemetery in France after which she began receiving allotments as his next-of-kin, until during an administrative review, the Veteran's Bureau (precursor of today's Veteran's Administration) discovered that she was Kocienski's cousin and not his sister. Using his naturalization certificate, the Bureau determined Mary was ineligible for any benefits and instead began paying them to Kocienski's father in Russia. Worse, the Bureau demanded that Mary return the thousands of dollars she had already received back to the U.S. Treasury. The packets of documents included in this archive provide fascinating insight into the grinding disdain and insensitivity of the federal bureaucracy as well as the dogged perseverance of her lawyers and her "brother's" former commanding officer to prevent this travesty. It is unknown if they were successful. A unique and compelling collection that documents an immigrant's ultimate sacrifice for his adopted country in World War One and the callous indifference of big government that followed.

        Poster] Your Wages Up or Down!

      National Miners Relief Committee n.d., but 1928, Pittsburgh - Poster advertising the buying and selling of Solidarity Certificates, issued by the communist-led National Miners Relief Committee, formed in response to a 16 month-long strike which left 150,000 miners in Ohio and Pennsylvania unemployed. The strike began after the workers in the bituminous coal fields experienced signifiant wage cuts in 1928. When the United Mine Workers' Union failed to support its members, the National Miners Relief Committee was formed, gaining notoriety after collaborating with Hollywood film director Sam Burke in the making of the propagandistic silent film documentary "The Miners' Strike" (1928). The present poster apparently issued early in the strike, warning readers that "If the Miners Union is destroyed the open shopper will next attack other organized trades" and "the American Labor movement will suffer a fatal blow and wages of organized as well as unorganized workers will go down." Members of the labor classes were thus encouraged to "Enlist at once in the Biggest Campaign for Strikers Relief ever undertaken by the Workers of America by buying and selling Solidarity Certificates for Miners Relief," the money being used for food and tents to feed and shelter the families of the striking miners. We find no copies catalogued in OCLC as of August, 2017.References: Steven J. Ross. Working-Class Hollywood (1999), p. 221.M. Keith Booker. Film and the American Left (1999), p. 21. Original photo-illustrated poster (63.5x48.5cm.) printed lithograph in brown on white stock; previous horizontal folds, extremities a bit chipped, else Very Good and sound overall.
