        The Red Shoes.

      Bristol: Printed and made in Offenbach, Germany, for Douglas Cleverdon,, 1928. Octavo. Original boards, titiles to spine in black, hand-coloured illustration to front board. With the unprinted dust jacket. With 15 hand-coloured wood-engravings by Willi Harwerth. A fine copy, with the dust jacket very good, chipped at the ends and corners, and bearing manuscript titles to spine panel. First edition, number 367 of 460 copies, from a total edition of 470. Very scarce, this copy with the rare plain dust jacket. This copy has the original prospectus laid in, bearing two more hand coloured illustrations. The prospectus notes: "The published Hans Andersen without illustrations would be unthinkable, but too often have the illustrations unworthy of their subject, caused one to wish that none had been attempted. In this edition of "The Red Shoes", the aim has been to achieve complete harmony between the story, the illustrations, and the typography." This beautiful fine press edition of The Red Shoes, Andersen's fairy tale made famous by Powell & Pressburger's 1948 film, was one of Douglas Cleverdon's very first publications, produced the year before his great book of Eric Gill Engravings.

        Shanghai of Today. A Souvenir Album of Fifty Vandyck Prints of "The Model Settlement".

      Shanghai.: Kelly & Walsh.. Second Edition enlarged.. 1928.. 15pp + 50 striking tipped in plates on an individual leaf each with decorative border and printed caption on opposite leaf. Black and white plate on upper cover. Original paper covered limp boards marked and worn with loss particularly at corners, plain modern cloth spine, Japanese paper repairs on joints. From the library of Arthur Hacker, Hong Kong author, artist, historian and collector with a neat pencilled underneath each image. Although the binding is worn and damaged the contents of this copy are very good and clean. 31 X 25cm. The eight page introduction by O.M. Green, editor of the North China Daily News, offers a very interesting picture of the city of Shanghai in the late 1920s. O.M. Green's opinions are interesting and no doubt reflect the thoughts of many others at the time. Certain of the great benefit and superiority of Western ways and Westerner governance he gives only limited recognition to the contribution of the local Chinese people. His text is accompanied by the 50 views which of course are the heart of this book. These striking views of Shanghai through a soft lens include a great many street scenes showing the local inhabitants going about their daily business with the grand buildings of Shanghai featuring in the background. .

      1928. Arthur Rackham Awakens Sleepy Hollow[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. IRVING, Washington. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. London: George G. Harrap & Co., [1928].Limited to 250 numbered copies for England (this copy being No. 102) and 125 copies for the United States, signed by Arthur Rackham. Quarto (10 3/16 x 8 inches; 262 x 203 mm.). 102, [1], [1, blank] pp. Eight color plates and thirty drawings in black and white. Minimal foxing to preliminary leaves.Publisher's vellum over boards, front cover and spine decoratively stamped in gilt, color pictorial end-papers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Corners very slightly bumped, engraved bookplate on front paste-down. A near fine copy. Housed in a later gray cloth slipcase.By 1928, the traditional Rackham book - freely and lavishly illustrated, and lushly produced - was, culturally no longer in fashion nor financially feasible. Artistically, Rackham's work was being overshadowed by a younger generation. Publisher George Harrap stepped in, took up the challenge, and, through production economies, published a new kind of Rackham book. But if the volumes were not as spectacular as in the past, the artwork was no less impressive.Latimore and Haskell, pp. 63-64. Riall, pp. 164-165.

        Colorful Original Signed Design for a Dress and Jacket

      - Striking original large-format jacket and dress design in the hand of the French fashion designer regarded as one of the greatest names in fashion history. Acccomplished in pencil and color inks and signed "Yves Saint Laurent" lower left in bold black ink. Approx 19 x 23 inches, archivally framed to slightly larger. A very rare authentic example, seldom encountered on the market and with extraordinary provenance. From the collection of June Weir-Baron (1928 - 2015), Fashion Historian and Journalist, the first woman Vice President at Fairchild Publications, a major force in her capacity as Fashion Editor and Assistant publisher of Women's Wear Daily and W, as an influential editor at Vogue, Executive Fashion Editor at Harper's Bazaar, deputy Style Editor for The New York Times Sunday Magazine and Contributing Editor at Mirabella. The design is ca. 1985, the year in which Caroline Rennolds Milbank wrote, "The most consistently celebrated and influential designer of the past twenty-five years, Yves Saint Laurent can be credited with both spurring the couture's rise from its sixties ashes and with finally rendering ready-to-wear reputable."

        Document Signed, oblong folio, March 2, 1928

      - Rare UA Stock Certificate is "No. 9" dated March 2, 1928, issued for 1998 shares to Pickford-Faribanks Studios Company and signed by Robert Fairbanks, Jr., Mary Pickford Fairbanks, John Mott, Edwin Loeb as Secretary and one other. The stock certificate reads, "This Certifies that PICKFORD FAIRBANKS STUDIOS COMPANY is the owner of One Thousand Nine Hundred Ninety-Eight Shares of the Capital Stock of United Artists Studios Corporation." The front of the certificate is signed by "R. Fairbanks" as President of United Artists Studio Corporation and "Edwin Loeb" as Secretary with "cancelled" penned across their signatures. "Cancelled" is also written at an angle in midsection of the certificate. Loeb was an attorney and cofounder of the International Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences which awards the Oscars. [The Academy dropped the International from its name at a later date.] The stub attached at left is signed, "R. Fairbanks, VP" as vice president of "Pickford- Fairbanks Studios Company." The following text shows on verso of the certificate: "For value received WE hereby sell, transfer and assign to MARY PICKFORD FAIRBANKS 999 SHARES AND DOUGLAS FAIRBANKS 999 SHARES." Signing for PICKFORD FAIRBANKS STUDIOS CO. are: "R Fairbanks," "Mary Pickford Fairbanks," "John G. Mott," and two others. The corporate seal shows through on the verso. The stamp on verso of the stub shows the hand written date of "3/2/28.". On February 14, 1922, Pickford-Fairbanks Studios Company filed articles of incorporation. Named as Directors were Douglas's brothers John Fairbanks and Robert Fairbanks, Mary's mother Charlotte Pickford Smith (died March 21, 1928), Mary's brother Jack Pickford, and Mary's attorney, John G. Mott. Three years earlier, February 5, 1919, United Artists was founded and incorporated as a joint venture on by D.W. Griffith, Charlie Chaplin, Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks. The four founders sought to avoid the control of the powerful commercial film studio and to protect their independence. They also created their own distributorships. The four who founded United Artists each held 20% of the company with the remaining 20% held by lawyer, William Gibbs McAdoo, son-in-law of Woodrow Wilson. As a cofounder as well as the producer and star of her own films, Canadian born Mary Pickford became the most powerful woman in Hollywood. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Autograph Letter, signed, to the literary agent, Major Pond, on Benêt's "John Brown's Body" and a possible lecture series under Pond's management

      [New York], 1928. 4 pp., on stationery of "Hotel Le Marquis". 8vo. Two perforations in upper left corner, legibility unaffected. 4 pp., on stationery of "Hotel Le Marquis". 8vo. Benêt on John Brown: "I tried to do my best with him…". Fascinating letter, written soon after the publication of Benêt's most enduring poem, JOHN BROWN'S BODY (1928), to America's most eminent literary agent of the day, Major Pond. "Thank you very much indeed for your interesting letter. I am particularly glad that someone who was actually brought up in the John Brown atmosphere, as you were, would have been in any way satisfied with the reconstruction I attempted of the period -- and of the character of that most contradictory man. I tried to do my best with him -- but one never knows and your letter gave me great pleasure. "I have given a couple of readings from the poem to small audiences - and not under the management of any lecture bureau. And, if I were going to do that thing at all, it goes without saying that I would be much more interested in a proposition from yourself than from anyone else. But, to be perfectly frank, I am not going to do it at all unless I have to. I am not a good lecturer - my voice does not carry particularly - and while I enjoy reading my verse, it's pretty tiring to do it more than once in every so often. However I appreciate your thinking of me in this connection -- and, as I say, if it ever did seem advisable for me to do anything of the sort, I'd much rather do it under your management …".

        La mort de Circé ou la revanche du cochon

      1928 - [3]ff., 12 planches, Paris, François Bernouard, 1928, in-folio, [3]ff, 12 planches, l'ensemble monté sur onglets, broché, couverture imprimée de l'éditeur, Tirage comprenant une suite des 12 magnifiques compositions de Paul Iribe. Un des 2000 exemplaires avec les illustrations sur papier pelure contrecollées ; celui-ci, non justifié, porte le tampon d'Iribe indiquant "hommage de l'auteur". Cet ouvrage étonnant comporte plusieurs critiques de la part de l'illustrateur Paul Iribe (1883-1935) : la première d'entre elles est une charge contre le cubisme, manifeste dès la première planche qui figure la mort, "regrettable d'ailleurs", de la magicienne Circé, qui avait métamorphosé les compagnons d'Ulysse en pourceaux. "Circé incarne pour Iribe la ligne courbe et l'esthétique fin-de-siècle au sein de laquelle il fit oeuvre, le cochon l'expansion déraisonnée de la géométrie et du cubisme qu'il abhorre" ; l'album est par ailleurs dédiée "A Sircé". Réalisé au retour des États-Unis, La mort de Circé sonne également le glas de l'aventure hollywoodienne et de la collaboration avec le réalisateur Cecil B. DeMille ; Iribe démontre son ressentiment à l'égard des américains et mais également, tel Ulysse qui rentre de son Odyssée malheureuse, à bord du paquebot "l'Île est Vilaine"- comprendre Manhattan - envers sa Pénélope qu'il retrouve endormie auprès de son amant. Dos factice, couverture salie. Petites déchirures sans manques à quelques planches. Paul Iribe, précurseur de l'art déco, Mairie de Paris, Bibliothèque Fornay, Hôtel de Sens, 1983, n° 265. Mythes de la décadence sous la direction d'Alain Montandaon, PU Blaise Pascal, 2001, pp. 119-120. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
