        Meistergeigen aus dem Besitz von Emil Hermann. 1926 - 27. (und:) Rare Violins Meistergeigen Emil Hermann. 1927 - 28. 2 Bände.

      (1928/1929), Berlin - New York 1928 - Quer-Quart. 49 nn. Bll. (Katalog 1926 - 27); 57 nn. Bll. (Katalog 1927 - 28). Original-Broschuren mit Kordelheftung. Zwei seltene Kataloge des renommierten Geigenhändlers Emil Herrmann. - Biographische Angaben zu Emil Herrmann (1888 - 1963) sind schwer zu ermitteln. Bekannt ist, daß der gebürtige Deutsche früh dem Vorbild seines Vaters August folgte, der neben seiner Lehrertätigkeit auch mit Geigen handelte. Emil wanderte nach Amerika aus und die nach ihm benannte Firma erwarb Weltruf und gehörte neben Namen wie Walter Hamma (Stuttgart), Albert Phillip Hill (London) und Heinrich Ludwig Werro (Bern) bald zu den 'ersten Adressen' der beachteten Händler und Experten. - In beiden Katalogen sind zusammen 85 vor allem altitalienische Meistergeigen in je drei Ansichten (Vorder-, Seiten- und Hinteransicht) abgebildet. Der Katalog '1926 - 27' zeigt sowohl Instrumente, die teils schon verkauft waren - hier mit Hinweis auf die neuen Eigentümer ("berühmte Künstler und bekannte Sammler") - als auch solche, die sich noch im Besitz Herrmanns befanden. Herrmann hebt in seinem Vorwort (in faksimilierter Handschrift) hervor, daß unter den "auserlesenen Stücken" die "bedeutendsten italienischen Meister" vertreten sind. Am Ende dieses Kataloges befinden sich acht Tafeln, auf denen die Geschäftsräume und Werkstätten der Geschäftsniederlassungen in Berlin und New York zu sehen sind. Der Katalog '1927 - 28' wird im Vorwort von Herrmann als "zweiter Jahrgang" bezeichnet. Er trägt den Vermerk "Privat-collection Emil Herrmann". - Broschur von Katalog '1927 -28' mit goldgeprägtem Wappen (ein stilisierter Geigenhals trennt die Buchstaben E und H). - Einbände berieben, mit Randläsuren und kleinen Einrissen; Ecken und Kanten berieben und bestoßen; die ersten und letzten Blatt etwas stockfleckig (bei Katalog "1927-28" stärker); etwas gebräunt; vereinzelt mit kleinen Einrissen und Knickfalten.

        My Book House [and] My Travelship. Complete Set in Original Wooden House.; [With:] Continuation volumes, and 'A Picturesque Tale of Progress'

      Chicago: The Bookhouse for Children. Good. A very good set of the six-volume "My Book House" and three-volume "My Travelship" in the original wooden house. Original cloth, with mounted cover illustrations, showing characteristic wear, some hinges cracked, soiling, etc., but overall a fine original set, preserved in the wooden case that shows a few small cracks to the wood and chips to the paint, but has chimneys intact and gilt title-paint fresh and bright, lacking the front steps as often given the tenuous attachment to the frame. Each volume is lavishly illustrated in color by such artists as N.C. Wyeth and Milo Winter, and prints classic children's stories, poems, myths, history, and tales. WITH THE CONTINUATION OF THE SERIES: Volumes Eight through Twelve of "My Book House," 1928-34; and the eight-volume series "A Picturesque Tale of Progress," 1929-33. Together 22 volumes.

        The Incredible Adventures of Rowland Hern

      William Heinemann: London, 1928. 8vo. 285pp. Publisher's bottle green cloth, sunned to spine, inevitably, every copy of this book is sunned to the spine, if the cloth colour of this title was any more fugitive it would be being pursued by Tommy Lee Jones. Otherwise however this is a superior copy, clean and sharp, a deeper green than is usually seen, bright gilt and with far less of a hangdog look than is usual. A very good handsome copy. Internally clean, pencil ownership to front pastedown, trifling spotting to prelims. Rowland Hern is a book of very highly regarded tales blending crime, weirdness and detective fiction with a brisk fluency that makes it unsurprising that it appears on everybody's must read lists. Scarce and pretty. .

        A Girl in Every Port (Original Film Pressbook)

      Los Angeles: Paramount Pictures, 1928. Original oversize tabloid style pressbook for the 1928 silent film. With many images of the iconic Louise Brooks, both illustrated and photographed, and replete with many essays on the making of the film. Included as well is an illustrated section showing some of the various available poster styles and other advertising accessories. A key film for Louise Brooks, one in which she reprised and honed her image as a "vamp," gaining the notice of European directors. She would soon become disgusted with what she called "the Hollywood scene," and would leave Paramount to work with G.W. Pabst in her legendary role as Lulu in the 1929 German film, "Pandora's Box." An early role for Myrna Loy, and also featuring stripper and fan-dancer Sally Rand, both featured here in illustrated form. 4 pages, bi-fold. 17.25 x 22.25 inches. Very Good plus, with light chipping along the bi-fold.
