        Les Idees Nouvelles de la Mode et de Arts No. 10â€"1928

      Paris: Les Idees, 1928 - Nouvelles de la Mode et de Arts was one of several fashion journals published in Paris. Les Idees is advertised as “Tres Parisian, la plus belle publication de mode du monde,” very Parisian, the most beautiful fashion publication of the world, the official organ of friends of French fashion. It was published from 1922 to 1932 at the height of French fashion, epitomizing modernity, craftsmanship, and specifically Art Deco which originated in France at the time of the International Exhibition held in Paris. This is an oversize portfolio (13 in. x 10 in.)â€"a medium weight paper cover, itself covered in a Chinese tissue paper, with two attached leaves (four pages) of introductory text by Francoise Marcignac, with two hand-painted illustrations in watercolor; within the covers are 14 loose fashion plates (nos. 9 and 10 of the original 16 are missing). The plates are hand-painted watercolors on the tissue-like paper and are attached to the top edge of a medium weight paper backing. Apparently, the designers supplied outlines and Jourmard did the painting (or Jourmard viewed the fashions and drew the sketches, and someone else painted them, or?). The fashions (day dresses, suits, sportier wear, evening wear, coats, accessories) are stunning and the colors are glorious. Designers represented in this issue are Lucien Lelong, Louise Boulanger, Cheruit, Bernard et C’, Jean Patou, Philippe et Gaston, Marthe, Jenny, Weil, Jancolsi, and Cyber. All of the plates are in excellent condition. The upper right corners of the pages are slightly bent but only the first three have a small crease. There is a little wear and crinkling to the tissue on the covers. A short strip of silk ribbon, half of a tie with which to secure the portfolio, is attached to the back cover, Published in French

        Dirizhabl' iz volnistoi stali [The Airship of Corrugated Steel]

      self-published, Kaluga 1928 - Octavo (26 × 17.9 cm). Original printed wrappers; 17 pp. Illustrations. Owner inscription of Nikolai A. Varvarov; about very good. Konstantin Tsiolkovsky (also Tsiolkovskii, Ciolkowski, or Ziolkowski; 1857-1935), the Russian aviation and astronautics pioneer, was one of the founding fathers of rocket science and an important inspiration to the Soviet space program, who also furthered Western research in the field. He was largely an autodidact who operated a small aerodynamics laboratory in his own apartment in provincial Kaluga; his early works were published by himself in small numbers and without outside funding and are today very scarce. Although he is now considered a major pioneer in his field, Tsiolkovsky failed to be acknowledged for his achievements for most of his career, gaining some recognition only in the early 1930s. His work is especially interesting insofar as it is not only scientifically motivated, but closely connected to the Russian cultural and philosophical movement of Cosmism. This pamphlet presents in full the basic design and instructionsn for Tsiolkovsky's proposed airship, to be made of corrugated sheet metal and pressurized with gas. Our copy stems from the personal collection of Nikolai A. Varvarov, the head of the astronautics section of the Russian civil defense organization in the 1950s, and an author of popular works on space flight (with his signature to the front wrapper). Scarce, with KVK and OCLC showing copies only at Michigan and ETH Zurich. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      Hawaii 1928 - Oblong octavo. Decorative paper boards measuring 7" x 10". Contains 97 sepia toned photographs measuring between 2" x 2.75" and 6" x 10" and affixed to stiff gray paper with captions. Additionally laid in are newspaper clippings and a Hawaii photogram booklet. Very good album with creasing and tears with mostly near fine photographs with some edgewear.A photo album kept while on a cruise to Hawaii in February of 1928 on the S.S. President Garfield. The album begins on board with the travelers sunbathing and having a good time on the sea along with shots of the boat itself. They arrived in Honolulu in March of that year, a picture of their arrival shows them throwing streamers from the deck. The travelers took trips to the Dole pineapple farm, went on a boat trip past the Leper Colony Kalaupapa, although they didn't disembark, and watched the sunset over Maui. A section of photos depicts a visit to the Hilo Boys Industrial School in Waialee, a reform school for boys consisting of roughly 100 Hawaiian boys convicted of assaulting their guardians. The photos mostly show the school grounds and complex with one photo showing the boys on the Hilo pier. There are also photographs of a flag raising at the Royal School, a boarding school for the royal children of Hawaii. There are photographs of a visit to Manana Island, referred to as Rabbit Island because at a distance it looks like a rabbit's head, and other images of beach frolicking near Kailua Bay. A small selection of larger prints shows the rock faces and cliffs of the Hawaiian coast. The entirety of the trip lasted just over a month with the company boarding a ship bound for the continental U.S. at the end of March.An interesting accumulation of the tourist attractions and local sites of Hawaii in the late 1920s.

A superb copy in the scarce glassine jacket, signed by Woolf in purple ink on the verso of the half-title. Woolf's singular feminist masterwork was written as "a tribute to [Vita] Sackville-West in the form of a parodic biography of a four-hundred-year old character, who starts out as a young aristocratic man in the Elizabethan age, changes from male to female in the course of the seventeenth century, and winds up as a modern woman driving a motor car in the 'present moment' ? Satirizing both the history of literature and the history of sexuality, Woolf playfully suggests both might be a matter of style" (Encyclopedia of Feminist Literature, p. 277).

        Franklin Roosevelt Combats Anti-Catholicism in 1928 Presidential Election

      New York 1928 - Typed Letter Signed, to William H. Higgs, on "Democratic National Committee" stationery, New York, September 1, 1928. 1 p. "It is an interesting fact that about 95% of the opposition to him in Democratic circles is due to the religious issue and not in the final analysis to prohibition or any other political issue before the American public."Roosevelt challenges a long-time Democratic campaigner to consider whether his preference for Republican Herbert Hoover is due to a prejudice against Alfred E. Smith's Catholicism. Complete Transcript September 1, 1928Mr. W. H. Higgs/ Lyons, New YorkMy dear Mr. Higgs:Naturally your letter of August 30th is a great disappointment to me and I hope that you will reconsider your decision to vote the Republican ticket especially after all the years you have given to help make the Democratic party amount to something.I know you will not mind my asking you frankly whether you are not a good deal influenced by the fact that Governor Smith is a Catholic. It is an interesting fact that about 95% of the opposition to him in Democratic circles is due to the religious issue and not in the final analysis to prohibition or any other political issue before the American public.If you knew both the candidates personally as I do, I am very certain that it would eliminate any prejudice that you may have in your mind and make you conclude that Governor Smith would make the better president of the two. Very sincerely yours, Franklin D. RooseveltHistorical BackgroundJust before the 1920 election, in which Franklin D. Roosevelt was the Democratic nominee for Vice President, William H. Higgs wrote to Roosevelt that the Democratic Party needed an upstate "header," and that "you were the man to take Hold and Put us in Fighting trim." After the election, Higgs was convinced that "We Never can win until you or some other Strong man takes Hold." Higgs suggested an upstate Democratic Club to work with the "Regulars."[1] In 1925, Higgs urged Roosevelt to run for governor against incumbent Governor Alfred E. Smith. Roosevelt optimistically responded, in part, "You and I will live to see the day when upstate is more democratic."[2] Although Roosevelt made some advances, the area remained solidly Republican: Wayne County gave a majority to a Democratic presidential candidate only once in the twentieth century, to Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964.In January 1927, Higgs wrote to Roosevelt, "Knowing that you are more than Interested in the advancement of Gov. Smith and can say that my feelings are Mutual as I am going to spend the months of Feby & March at my old home in Michigan though[t] that I might be able to do him some good.What do you suggest[?]" Roosevelt responded, "I am glad you agree with me that we should all do everything possible to advance the cause of our excellent Governor. Michigan will be a good place for you to tell them about his fine accomplishments."[3]Higgs apparently obtained a position in Lyons while he was caring for his dying wife. In July 1927, he was "removed without notice to make way for a Catholic and Knight of Columbus." Higgs considered his removal "a direct insult to me," and he informed Roosevelt that "the Protestant voters of Lyons resent it." Roosevelt asked the Superintendent of Public Works to investigate, describing Higgs as "a fine old scout who was extremely active not only in the Woodrow Wilson campaign but since then in behalf of the Governor." The Superintendent responded that Higgs' work had been unsatisfactory and that his replacement had "filled the job with greater satisfaction to the Department."[4]After more than a decade of correspondence, Roosevelt was now shocked to learn that Higgs planned to vote for Republican Herbert Hoover rather than Democrat Alfred E. Smith.Herbert Hoover won the 1928 presidential election by a commanding 58 percent of the popular vote to succeed President Calvin Coolidge, who did not seek reelection. Hoover rec.

        Eresia - di Oggi e di Domani. Nos. 1-9 (Aprile 1928 - Marzo 1929)

      Bronx, New York: [Enrico Arrigoni], 1928-29. First Edition. Eresia was founded in 1928 by the Italian-American bricklayer Enrico Arrigoni as a journal of individualist anarchism. Nine issues appeared before publication was suspended in March 1929; three more issues would be published in 1931-2. Only the first nine issues are included here. Arrigoni (1898-1988) was a Milanese anarchist, laborer, and social critic; after immigrating to the U.S. ca. 1925 he began contributing to Italian-American journals under the pseudonym "Frank Brand." Arrigoni remained active well into old age, publishing work as late as the 1980s. He was especially active in the movement to aid Cuban anarchists who were persecuted following the 1959 revolution. Eresia forms an important bridge between the Italian-American insurrectionary anarchist tradition of the early 20th century and post-WW2 libertarianism, and it is uncommon: OCLC notes two holdings in North America (Michigan & NYPL), a few others in Europe, of varying degrees of completeness. Nine consecutive issues (issued irregularly), bound into patterned paste-paper boards. Quarto; each issue 32pp; some illus. Binding chipped at corners; moderate wear and toning to contents, including an obtrusive, amateur scotch-tape repair to gutter of issue no. 9; still Good, solidly bound and complete, with no markings or loss. Text entirely in Italian.

        1-230)

      circa 1928 - a feint ruled album with 230 typed limericks on slips of paper pasted onto the pages, juxtaposed above with cut out steel-engraved illustrations, pp. 230, the last leaf with a needle (sharp, and a little rusted) pinned to it, 4to, contemporary/original red linen backed marbled boards, spine weakening (largely due to the increase of bulk, thanks to the additions). The limericks here collected are of the type that Don Marquis identifies as LIMERICKS. The chief glory of this collection, beyond the lubricity of the lyrics themselves, is their extremely clever juxtaposition with melodramatic illustrations from Penny Dreadfuls: they may be said to lift the lid on Victorian prudery and hypocrisy. We have not identified any particular publications, but some examples are signed by such artists as Crowquill, Nicholson, and John Swain. The collection is datable to about 1928. A few appear in Norman Douglas's anthology, and others in Gershorn Legman's anthology of 1953, where commensurate dates are assigned. Contemporary references to Freud, Stopes, and a Seven Horse Austin, reinforce this dating. The one concerning Freud was composed by Philip Hestletine, and was published in The Weekend Book in 1927: here, the last word is 'phalluses' rather than the coy 'fallacies' in Legman. About a quarter of the limericks here are anthologised by Legman, but many are not, so there are probably some original.

        London After Midnight. Illustrated Edition. A Metro-Goldwin Mayer Picture.

      London Reader's Library 1928 - First U. K. MGM edition, small 8vo., six full-page photographic stills from the film, toned, faint spotting to fore-edge (edge of text block, publisher's red cloth boards gilt, pictorial dust-jacket, illustrated on both panels, a couple of short closed tears, a little rubbed at extremities, otherwise very good. This book is particularly rare given the photographic stills found therein provide a glimpse of a long lost film from the twilight years of the silent film era; it was made in 1927, starred Lon Chaney and directed by Lon Chaney (1883-1930), stage and film actor, make-up artist, director and screenwriter was known as the 'Man of a Thousand Faces' due to his versatility in his acting and make-up skills in transforming himself into extreme characters from vampires to orientals; he was one of the great pioneers of the silent era. Chaney did make one 'talkie' prior to his untimely death, which also revealed the same versatility in his voice. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Volia vselennoi: neizvestnye sily razuma [The Will of the Universe: Intellect Unknown]

      self-published, Kaluga 1928 - Octavo (17 × 12.8 cm). Original printed wrappers; 23 pp. Very good. [The Cosmist Philosophy of the Soviet Space Flight Pioneer]. Konstantin Tsiolkovsky (also Tsiolkovskii, Ciolkowski, or Ziolkowski; 1857-1935), the Russian aviation and astronautics pioneer, was one of the founding fathers of rocket science and an important inspiration to the Soviet space program, who also furthered Western research in the field. He was largely an autodidact who operated a small aerodynamics laboratory in his own apartment in provincial Kaluga; his early works were published by himself in small numbers and without outside funding and are today very scarce. Although he is now considered a major pioneer in his field, Tsiolkovsky failed to be acknowledged for his achievements for most of his career, gaining some recognition only in the early 1930s. His work is especially interesting insofar as it is not only scientifically motivated, but also closely connected to the Russian cultural and philosophical movement of Cosmism. Much of Tsiolkovsky's inspiration for striving toward space travel can be traced to his early encounters with the Russian cosmist Nikolai Fedorov (1829-1903). In addition to his scientific projects, he also authored numerous pamphlets of a more utopian, socio-political, and philosophical nature. The present work is the fullest expression of what he called "pan-psychism," the belief that humanity is destined for life in outer space, and that immortality can be achieved in this new "space culture," which will profoundly affect human evolution: "The conquest of the air will be followed by the conquest of ethereal space. ? These creatures will be born citizens of the ether, of pure sunshine ? Thus, there is no end to life, to reason and to the perfection of mankind. Its progress is eternal" (translation in S. D. Tucker, Forgotten Science). Scarce, with no copies in North America (KVK and OCLC only show the copy at the British Library). [Attributes: Soft Cover]
