        [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.

        20 Hrs. and 40 Min. Our Flight in the Friendship. The American Girl, First Across the Atlantic by Air, Tells Her Story.

      New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1928. First edition, second printing, published the same year as the first. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Amelia Earhart on the half title page. In near fine condition with light rubbing. "In April 1928 Earhart received the telephone call that would change her life: an offer to become the first woman to fly the Atlantic. Earhart's impeccable character and physical resemblance to Charles A. Lindbergh made her an easy choice for the promoters, aviator Richard Byrd, publisher George Putnam, and socialite Amy Phipps Guest, who had originally intended to make the flight. On the morning of 3 July 1928 Earhart departed from Boston Harbor in a trimotor Fokker with pilots Wilmer 'Bill' Stultz and Louis 'Slim' Gordon. Earhart agreed to go as a passenger, though 'the idea of going as just 'extra weight' did not appeal to me at all.' Following the departure from Trepassy, Newfoundland, at 11:40 a.m. on 17 June, the Friendship encountered miserable weather, and Earhart never touched the controls during the 20-hour, 40-minute flight. Stultz landed the Fokker on the water at Burry Port, Wales, and Earhart became an immediate sensation. Earhart was astounded by the reception she received. She was feted in London and New York and was given a ticker-tape parade down Broadway with her nearly forgotten fellow pilots. On the postflight tour around the country... Earhart sensed her opportunity to promote her passions of aviation, feminism, and pacifism... Earhart became an accomplished speaker, writer, and columnist for Cosmopolitan. She joined Lindbergh in promoting a new air mail service, Transcontinental Air Transport, and she purchased a Lockheed Vega, which she flew in the first women's cross-country air derby in 1929" (ANB).

      (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. Additional shipping charges apply.
