        Urformen der Kunst; Photographische Pflanzenbilder.

      Verlag Ernst Wasmuth A.G., Berlin. No date [1928]. First edition, first printing. xvii, (3) pages followed by 120 black and white photographic plates printed on the rectos only. Large 4to (32 x 25 cm). Green cloth binding with gilt lettering on front cover and spine. Spine faded, front board partly darkened otherwise in great condition. Introduction by Karl Nierendorf. (The Open Book, Hasselblad Center, pp. 66-67). "Karl Blossfeldt (1865-1932) was a German photographer, sculptor, teacher, and artist who worked in Berlin, Germany. /.../ Blossfeldt made many of his photographs with a home-made camera that could magnify the subject up to thirty times its size, revealing details within a plant's natural structure. Appointed for a teaching post at the Institute of Royal Arts Museum in 1898 (where he remained until 1930), he established an archive for his photographs. Blossfeldt never received formal training in photography. Blossfeldt developed a series of home-made cameras that allowed him to photograph plant surfaces in unprecedented magnified detail. This reflected his enduring interest in the repetitive patterns found in nature's textures and forms. In Berlin from the late nineteenth century until his death, Blossfeldt's works were primarily used as teaching tools and were brought to public attention in 1928 by his first publication Urformen der Kunst (Art Forms in Nature). Published in 1928 when Blossfeldt was 63 and a professor of applied art at the Vereinigte Staatsschulen für freie und angewandte Kunst, Urformen der Kunst quickly became an international bestseller and in turn, made Blossfeldt famous almost overnight. His contemporaries were impressed by the abstract shapes and structures in nature that he revealed. Swiftly regarded as a seminal book on photography, Blossfeldt's factual yet finely detailed imagery was praised by Walter Benjamin, who declared that Karl Blossfeldt 'has played his part in that great examination of the inventory of perception, which will have an unforeseeable effect on our conception of the world'. He compared him to Maholy-Nagy and the pioneers of New Objectivity, and ranked his achievements alongside the great photographers August Sander and Eugene Atget. The Surrealists also championed him, and George Bataille included his images in the periodical Documents in 1929" Wikipedia.

        Edle nacktheit in China

      Eigenbrodler Verlag, Berlin 1928 - First edition, large 8vo, pp. 7 (text), [1], [31] (full-page photogravures), [1]; text in German; French-fold textblock, maroon paper wrappers, in a dust jacket sporting the 32nd (unique) photogravure on upper cover; light soiling to dust jacket, very good. Perckhammer served in the Seige of Tsingtao during the First World War, and from 1917 to 1919 was a Japanese prisoner of war. He remained in China after his release, and produced two photo books. One was a collection of Peking street scenes, and the second was this book, a collection of soft focus nudes, mainly of prostitutes from Macao, which had to be smuggled out of China. In his introduction to the English language edition Perckhammer states, "Pictures of nude women, setting aside the ugly caricatures of the "Spring pictures" of erotic scenes, simply do not exist in China. Therefore I believe, I have created something entirely new and of value," and indeed we have seen few if any such books appear ourselves. The book was later banned by the Nazis under their list of harmful and undesirable writings. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Book of the Saints of the Ethiopian Church.

      Cambridge: at the University Press, , 1928. A translation of the Ethiopic Synaxarium [in Ethiopic: Mashafa Senkesar]made from the manuscripts Oriental 660 and 661 in the British Museum, 4 volumes, octavo. Original red cloth, gilt lettered spines. With the dust jackets (for volumes I-III only). Jacket spines toned, some tears (with loss), splits and chips, spine of volume IV lightly sunned, boards a little discoloured and slightly dished, touch of foxing to fore edges. First and limited edition, 300 sets were printed; scarce, particularly in the dust jackets. "The Masahafa Senkesar is a vast storehouse of Christian legends and traditions and popular folk-lore, and as a whole it illustrates clearly the history of Egyptian, Nubian and Ethiopian Christianity for a period of about thirteen hundred years" (Budge's Preface). Niall Finneran describes it as "a calendar of feast days of holy individuals from across the eastern Christian world and although containing a heavy Coptic influence occasionally gives some insight into contemporary Ethiopian saints such as Tekla Haymanot as well as the activities of the Nine Saints from a much earlier period" (The Archaeology of Ethiopia,2007, p. 28).

        A rare and important photographic souvenir commemorating the first round-Australia solo flight, completed by Captain the Hon. Hugh Grosvenor, May-June 1929. The item, framed and glazed (external dimensions 315 x 815 mm), comprises a pair of original vintage gelatin silver photographs (each 150 x 200 mm, one signed in white ink by the Adelaide photographer, Darian Smith) mounted together with a hand-drawn ink route map (175 x 225 mm). The original matt is inscribed with basic details of the flight (between 6 May and 5 June 1929); it is further signed in ink by the pilot ('H.R. Grosvenor / Adelaide / 5/6/29')

      - In 1928, Hugh Raufe Grosvenor (1904-1930) 'became ADC to Sir Alexander Hore Ruthven in South Australia. In 1929 he was the first person to fly solo round Australia in a light plane, a DH Moth with a Cirrus 2 engine' (Edward Wixted: 'The North-West Aerial Frontier, 1919-1934', [1985]). His next venture was an attempt at the Australia-England flight record of 13 days established in June 1929 by Kingsford Smith and Ulm. On Monday 6 January 1930, aged 25, he met his death when the experimental Wackett Widgeon II Amphibian crashed into Port Phillip Bay.

Rivista che nasce con l'intento di approfondire i problemi agrari italiani e costruita sul modello di un altra rivista da lui fondata e diretta: La rivista illustrata del popolo d'Italia. In realta' oltre al tema agricolo - naturale - industriale troviamo in ogni numero articoli dedicati all'architettura, all'arte e alla fotografia con molta attenzione alle avanguardie e agli sperimentalismi.

Di grande interesse sono poi gli undici articoli dedicati alla fotografia, opera di Antonio Boggeri: La fotografia alla fiera di Milano; Il terzo salone italiano d'arte fotografica internazionale a Torino; La cinematografia dei dilettanti; Fotografia moderna ecc. Anche altri articoli dimostrano l'attenzione per le avanguardie come la recensione de Il sangue del poeta di Jean Cocteau (Prampolini). Molto importante e' l'articolo contenuto nel n.11 del 1932, Munari: illusionista degli spazi, contenente 2 importanti tavole a colori dell'artista. Altra interessante tavola f. t. a colori dello stesso artista si trova nel n. 11 del 1931 (pubblicita' per il tessuto Rodier). Notevole anche come repertorio del design mondiale essendo riportati mobili, ceramiche, stoffe, oggetti, opera di architetti come Breuer, Mies Van Der Rohe, Pollini, Gladky, Dabovich, Sartoris, Libera, Giandante X, Hunebelle, Damon, Sognot, Alix ecc.

        The Money Game. How to Play it. A New Instrument of Economic Education

      J. M. Dent & Sons Ltd, London & Toronto 1928 - First edition, second imprint. Presentation copy, inscribed by Angell to the Danish journalist, Peter Jerndorff-Jessen. In publisher's blue cloth with gilt stamp on front panel and gilt ornaments and title on spine. (2), viii, (6), 168, (2) p. Inscribed copy of The Money Game, designed by the Nobel laureate Norman Angell. The book explains how to play the game and gives two optional supplementary games. It contains the game box with 150 original colour money cards, 100 industry playing cards divided into 10 sets, 2 insurance or joker cards, and 8 unused score sheets. Each of the games intended to educate about monetary and banking systems and are based around the premise of an engineer shipwrecked on an island with limited source of gold, populated by natives unfamiliar with the concept of money. In the first game one player represents the engineer, who wants to buy machine parts, the others, the islanders, own these parts from earlier shipwrecks. The cost of the parts are increasing as the islanders want to get as much of money as they can. The winner is who "breaks" the engineer by holding more notes than he can cover with his supply of gold. In the second game the islanders are purchasing goods produced by the engineer by bidding and the aim is the collect the most merchandise. In the third game the engineer becomes a financier who lends money to the islanders to build a complete enterprise (a set of 10 cards), and the islanders bargain with amongst themselves. The first copyright of the game is dated back to 1912, but the game became very popular only after its introduction in the US in 1927. The first "bookcase" edition was published in November 1928, and and it was reprinted in already in December. Sir Norman Angell (1872-1967) was a British economist, a prolific writer, Member of the Parliament for the Labour Party, and a Nobel laureate, awarded with the Peace Prize in 1933. Light wear to binding. One page loose. With the complete, original set of game pieces and cards, in excellent condition. The original game box bound to the rear of the book. Overall in near-fine condition. In publisher's blue cloth with gilt stamp on front panel and gilt ornaments and title on spine First edition, second imprint. Presentation copy, inscribed by Angell to the Danish journalist, Peter Jerndorff-Jessen. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Manuscrit autographe : Il pleut des sous à Alger

      - 4 pages sur 4 feuillets, 210 x 270 mm. MANUSCRIT AUTOGRAPHE de travail de 4 pages, comprenant de nombreuses ratures et ajouts, de la première partie d?une Fantaisie barbaresque: Il pleut des sous à Alger, sur-titrée Chez les Teurs parut dans La Revue Européenne en janvier-février 1928.« Il pleut des sous à Alger, dans le square Broussau. Les petits cireurs, qui d?abord se sont cirés eux-mêmes, si j?en juge par la couleur de leurs pieds nus, jettent des sous en l?air, et on voit tous leurs yeux levés en même temps. Je pense qu?il y a autre chose dans le jeu mais je ne suis pas parvenu à comprendre quoi. Des écritaux proclament qu?il est interdit de piétiner les plates-bandes; c?est bien pourtant ce que je fait ici. Un général en retraite, belle figure pour cortège de mariage, a comme fonction de poursuivre les calamares (c?est le nom qu?on donne ici aux gosses arabes) avec une longue gaule. L?un d?entre-eux, qui se traine à terre, accroupit sur sa petite boîte, a l?air, ? oui Madame, d?un chien qui fait la brouette.[.] Coup de canon. Mussolini ? Mais non, les gens mettent leurs montres à midi. [.] Une chaude sensualité est répendue sur cette ville où tous les Kings of the life de intelligentsia sont venus renouveler leurs désirs. Sur la porte des maisons est peinte une main pleine d?invites, dotée parfois, pour mieux faire sentir le registre de ses caresses, d?un doigt supplémentaire. Les garages recommandent : "Entrez et sortez lentement". Les affiches de notaires promettent une jouissance immédiate. La permanence de la Mission Évangélique est fermée ».

        The Golden Age [and] Dream Days With Illustrations and Decorations by Ernest A Shepard

      London: John Lane, The Bodley Head Limited, [1928 & 1930]. 2 vols., 8vo, xi, 167; xii, 168 pp. with 57 plates and text illustrations and numerous decorations by Shepard. Original marbled boards backed in gilt-lettered vellum, preserved in modern orange cloth double slipcase. Some rubbing along edges; free endpapers discolored by paste offset; overall a crisp set. First editions thus; first published in 1895 and 1898. #33 and #183 of 275 large-paper copies signed by both Grahame and Shepard. These two collections of tales, most of them about the escapades of five brothers and sisters living in a large country house, made Kenneth Grahame famous as a writer for and about children, to the extent that many critics and readers disparaged The Wind in the Willows when it appeared in 1898 for being unlike the two beloved previous books. Shepard's great success as the illustrator of these two works led to his being commissioned to illustrate the 1931 edition of The Wind in the Willows when Arthur Rackham had to turn down the job.

Quelques petites rousseurs. Reliure à la bradel en demi box brun, dos lisse, plats de papier fantaisie, gardes et contreplats de papier brun, couvertures conservées, tête dorée, reliure signée de Goy & Vilaine. Précieux envoi autographe signé de Paul Valéry : « A Victoria Ocampo, - a sus piès de Vd - ce petit rien qu'elle a bien voulu désirer. » Superbe dédicace qui inaugure la fidèle amitié unissant les deux écrivains par - delà les différences. A la mort de Valéry en 1945, Victoria Ocampo relatera cette première rencontre de décembre 1928 lors d'un dîner d'écrivains auquel est conviée la jeune Argentine tout juste débarquée à Paris. Evénement fondateur de leur amitié et de l'admiration mutuelle dont témoigne leur émouvante correspondance, c'est à l'aune de cette première impression que Victoria Ocampo décrira sa relation avec le poète et « les sentiments contradictoires que suscitèrent en [elle] la rencontre de l'œuvre et de l'homme qui la conçut : émerveillement, étranglement, admiration, accablement, bonheur. Effets, sur une Sud - Américaine, amoureuse du génie français, d'une des plus grandes intelligences européennes, lorsqu'elle s'en approcha - un peu tremblante - comme d'un feu qui vous attire et vous tient à distance du même coup. » Nul doute que l'impression de Valéry ne fut pas moins intense pour qu'il lui adresse, peu après, cette dédicace pleine d'humilité qui ne laisse pas d'évoquer les précieux envois de Victor Hugo à Juliette Drouet « à vos pieds, Ma Dame ». Confidente épistolaire du poète déchu durant les dures années de guerre, Ocampo lui rendra à sa mort un vibrant hommage « par - delà l'intelligence et la bêtise, par - delà la vie. Avec mon respect, mon culte, ma tendre affection si nouée à l'humain. Avec tout ce qui en moi, tant que je vivrai, ne cessera de le sentir vivant, ne cessera d'être le lieu périssable où son immortalité commence. » Exemplaire parfaitement établi.

        K.A.M. JUBILEE BOOK 1847 - 1927

      1928. Publishers cloth. 8vo. 183 pages. 24 cm. First edition. Bound in black cloth with gilt lettering, includes pastedown photograph of the new temple of the congregation. Includes multiple essays on the history of the oldest congregation in Chicago, illustrations and advertisements throughout. ?Kehillat Anshe Ma'arab, the first Jewish congregation, was established Nov. 3, 1847, when a constitution was adopted and signed by fourteen members. Morris L. Leopold, a young man of twenty - six, born in Laubheim, Württemberg, was elected president. The Jewish Burial - Ground Society turned over to the congregation all its property, including the cemetery, and dissolved. Kehillat Anshe Ma'arab held its first regular service in a private room on the second floor of a building on the southwest corner of Lake and Wells streets, and in 1849 leased a lot on Clark street, between Adams and Quincy streets where the post - office now stands) , on which it erected a frame synagogue. In 1853 this congregation established a day - school, where Hebrew was taught in addition to the regular common - school curriculum. This school was in operation for twenty years. In 1856 a new cemetery on Green Bay road (now North Clark street) and Belmont avenue was purchased. In 1857 the old burial - ground, having been included in the city extensions, had to be abandoned. In 1882 the ground was sold to the park commissioners, and it is now merged in Lincoln Park. On the date of the closing of the old burial - ground (June 11, 1857) the first interment in the new cemetery took place. In 1868 the congregation purchased the northwest corner of Wabash avenue and Peck court, with the church standing upon it. The latter was converted into a synagogue. In the great fire of 1871 the synagogue escaped destruction, but all the records, which had been placed by Joseph Pollak, the secretary of the congregation, and at that time clerk of Cook county, in a vault of the court - house, were lost. In 1873 Dr. Merzbacher's prayer - book was adopted. An organ, choir, and family pews had been introduced several years before. In the fire of1874, Kehillat Anshe Ma'arab lost the synagogue on Wabash avenue, and in December of that year it purchased the church and site on the corner of Indiana avenue and Twenty - sixth street. The church was converted into a synagogue, and the property on Wabash avenue and Peck court was sold. In 1888 Jacob Rosenberg, then vice - president, presented to the congregation twenty acres of land in the town of Jefferson, to be used as a burial - ground. This is now called . ?Mount Ma'arab Cemetery. ? The bodies in the North Clark street cemetery were transferred to Mount Ma'arab, and the vacated property was sold. The latter is now completely built over, and all traces of the former cemetery have vanished. In 1889 Kehillat Anshe Ma'arab found that most of its members had moved farther south. The location of the synagogue being, therefore, no longer convenient for the majority, a plot on the southeast corner of Indiana avenue and Thirty - third street was purchased, and the temple now in use was erected. The latter has a seating capacity of 1, 500 persons. The membership is 175. In 1902 the Einhorn ritual, in the English version, was adopted. ?

        Decline and Fall.

      London: Chapman & Hall Ltd,, 1928. An Illustrated Novelette. Octavo. Original red and black marbled cloth, gilt lettered spine. With the dust jacket. Illustrations by Evelyn Waugh. Spine slightly rolled; an excellent copy in the jacket with faded spine. First edition, first impression. The author's remarkable first novel, with his own illustrations, in the dust jacket also designed by him. After the book was rejected for indecency by Duckworth's, the publisher of his earlier biography of Rossetti, Waugh offered the manuscript to Chapman & Hall, but he did so while his father, who was the managing director of the firm, was away on holiday. The acting-director agreed to publish the novel and Arthur Waugh returned to London to discover that his son was his firm's newest author. When Arthur Waugh's biography was published three years later, however, Decline and Fall and Vile Bodies, the two novels published under his directorship of Chapman & Hall, were not mentioned. The indelicate material, which Martin Stannard has since revealed in fact did go through some "taming" revisions, was perhaps too much for the elder Waugh.

Bookplate of Comte Raoul Chandon de Birailles (1850-1908), champagne merchant and wine historian, to front pastedown. Spine gently rolled, extremities lightly bumped, half-title browned, a very good copy. First edition, first impression of the work completing Philby's account of his mission to Ibn Sa'ud, ruler of the Nejd, in 1917, begun with The Heart of Arabia, published in 1922. The British were keen to woo Ibn Sa'ud into attacking the Rashids of Ha'il, allies of the Turks, and Philby travelled by camel from the Persian Gulf to Riyadh. "There he spent ten days and was deeply impressed by the personality of Ibn Sa'ud. It was the start of an admiration that stayed with him for life. Persuading Ibn Sa'ud to provide an escort, he continued his journey, again by camel, to Jiddah on the Red Sea ? This crossing of Arabia from coast to coast brought him for the first time into the public eye. In Jiddah, Philby met the Hashemite ruler of Hejaz, the Sharif Husain, leader of the Arab revolt, whose sons were in the field against the Turks, under the guidance of T. E. Lawrence. He became convinced that the British authorities in Cairo and London were wrong to prefer Husain over Ibn Sa'ud as the future leader of the Arabs. But his arguments to this effect did not prevail, either then or later ? Few would quarrel with the inscription on [Philby's] tombstone: 'Greatest of Arabian explorers'. And in the central judgements of his life?that Ibn Sa'ud was the man to back in Arabia and that the Arabs had to have their independence?he was right and almost everyone else was wrong." (ODNB).

        Putyi tvoi, Gospodi, skaji mne [Thy Ways, O Lord, Tell Me]. Autograph musical manuscript of this vocal work for tenor solo, mixed chorus and piano. In score

      - 10 pp. In E, 2/2 time, marked "Lento" at head. Folio (358 x 265 mm.). Unbound. Notated in ink on 18-stave Russian music manuscript paper. With numerous autograph corrections and amendations including pencil markings of an editorial nature. The printer's copy, presumably used in preparation of the published edition. With pencilled annotation to upper left corner of title indicating receipt of the manuscript (presumably by the publisher) on October 13, 1928. Slightly worn and soiled. Not recorded in Slonimsky. "In two fields of Russian music Grechaninov has a special place: children';s music and liturgical works. Even his first liturgy op.13 is worth attention; and in the op.19 choruses he used a new style, favoured by Katal sky and others, recognizable by its modal harmonization of old Russian melodies. This initially aroused strong opposition from conservative church musicians. In the popular second liturgy Grechaninov solved the problem of the Credo by giving the text to a solo alto, who declaims it rhythmically while the choir sings the word ?Veruyu'; (?I believe';) in simple harmony. Grechaninov';s later use of instruments in para-liturgical works, his composition of a Roman Catholic Mass and motets (with organ), and his writing of a Missa oecumenica - a Latin mass for solo voices, chorus, organ and orchestra on Orthodox, Gregorian and Hebrew liturgical melodies - all testify to his liberal religious outlook."

Lawrence was awarded the 1920 James Tait Black Memorial Prize, founded in memory of a partner in the publishing house of A. & C. Black Ltd., and one of the oldest and most prestigious book awards in Britain.

        [SOVIET AGITPOP THEATER] Sinyaya bluza. 5 let. [i.e. Blue Blouse. 5 Years] / posvyaschaetsya pyatiletiyu Sinei bluzy. Sbornik pod redakciey B. Uzhanina i V. Mrozovskogo. [i.e. dedicated to "Blue Blouse" 5th Anniversary. Collection edited by B. Uzhanin and V. Mrozovsky]

      Moscow: Iskra revolyutsii, 1928. [64] pp. 26x17 cm. 5000 copies printed. Wrapper designed by B. Sakhnovsky, photo-montage by A. Akhtyrko, L. Zotov, B. Sakhnovsky. Spine is repaired with paper, otherwise good condition. "Blue Blouse" was a popular theater-collective of the early Soviet era. First a small troupe, it was soon replicated across the country, and by 1927 there were 5000 troupes with more than 100,000 actors involved. Essentially, they filled the gap left by the pre-revolutionary phenomenon of folk-theater. The "Blue Blouse" founded the style of agitprop theater, a corollary of the poster propaganda of the day. Most of the well-known Soviet poets and writers were involved in "Blue Blouse" productions: Osip Brik was the ideological creator of the theater; Vladimir Mayakovsky amd Vassily Lebedev-Kumach were among its writers. A tour of the theater to Germany, Lithuania and China connected with a wide public. This collection celebrates the 5th anniversary of the theater. It includes reviews of Sinyaya Bluza productions and describes the most notable performances. OCLC locates no copies in USA.
