        Metropolis in "La Petite Illustration"

      Paris: Imp. de l'Illustration, 1928. About Fine in photo illustrated wrappers, with 20 sepia-toned stills from Fritz Lang's 1927 masterpiece. La Petite Illustration was a weekly magazine that published extended reviews of new films in Paris along with novels and poetry. This special 12-page issue (dated March 3, 1928) is dedicated entirely to Lang's "Metropolis." The French premiere of the film was on October 14th, 1927, screened at L'Imperial for three months. In March of 1928, the film had a short one-week revival at the same theater; this issue of La Petite Illustration was printed in conjunction with the event, with extraordinary still images throughout. A glimpse into the first French reaction to the most expensive and ambitious film of the Silent era, one that has come to represent visually nothing less than Europe in the 1920s in terms of Expressionism, Art Deco, Modernism, utopian/dystopian philosophy, and socialism. 10 pages, self-wrappers, saddle-stitched, 8 x 11.75 inches. Milligan, p. 109.

        William Gropper 56 Zeichnungen fun Ratn-Farband

      editions le triangle Paris, Paris, France 1928 - Title and table of contents in Yiddish. William Victor "Bill" Gropper (Dec. 3, 1897 - Jan. 3, 1977) was a U.S. cartoonist, painter, lithographer, and muralist. A committed radical, he is best known for the political work which he contributed to such left wing publications as The Revolutionary Age, The Liberator, The New Masses, The Worker, and The Morning Freiheit. Gropper was born to Harry and Jenny Gropper in New York City, the eldest of 6 children. His parents were Jewish immigrants from Romania and Ukraine, who were both employed in the city's garment industry, living in poverty on New York's Lower East Side. His mother worked hard sewing piecework at home. His father was university-educated and fluent in 8 languages, but was unable to find employment in America in a field for which he was suited. This failure of the American economic system to make proper use of his father's talents doubtlessly contributed to William Gropper's lifelong antipathy to capitalism. Gropper's alienation was accentuated when on March 24, 1911 he lost a favorite aunt in the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, in which 146 worked burned to death or jumped to their deaths because they were unable to flee the burning sweatshop since the doors were locks by the employers. At age 6 Gropper took chalk to the sidewalks, decorating the concrete with elaborate picture stories of cowboys and Indians that extended around the block. As a child on the way to school, Bill used to lug bundles of his mother's piecework sewing to the sweatshops by which she was employed. At age 13, Gropper took his first art instruction at the radical Ferrer School, where he studied under George Bellows and Robert Henri. In 1913, Bill graduated from public school, earning a medal in art and a scholarship to the National Academy of Design. He refused to conform at the academy, however, and was subsequently expelled. He attempted to attend High School that fall, but finances prevented his attendance and he was forced to seek work to help support his family.He worked as an assistant in a clothing store, earning $5 a week. In 1915, Bill showed a portfolio of his work to Frank Parsons, the head of the New York School of Fine and Applied Arts. The work so impressed Parsons that Gropper was offered a scholarship to the school. Gropper continued to work reduced hours for reduced wages in the clothing store while he continued his artistic education. In the subsequent two years, Bill gained recognition and awards for his work. In 1917, Gropper was offered a position on the staff of the New York Tribune, where over the next several years he earned a steady income doing drawings for the paper's special Sunday feature articles. At this time, the politically radical Gropper was brought into the orbit of original and innovative artists around the left wing New York monthly, The Masses. After The Masses was banned from the US Mail in 1917, due to its unflinching anti-militarism, Gropper joined artists like Robert Minor, Maurice Becker, Art Young, Lydia Gibson, Hugo Gellert, and Boardman Robinson in contributing to its successor, The Liberator. Gropper also contributed his art to The Revolutionary Age, a revolutionary socialist weekly edited by Louis C. Fraina and (in later issues) John Reed, a publication which narrowly predated the establishment of the American Communist Party, as well as to The Rebel Worker, a magazine of the Industrial Workers of the World, an anarcho-syndicalist union. In 1920 Gropper went to Cuba briefly as an oiler on a United Fruit Company freight boat. He left the ship in Cuba and spent some time there observing life and working as a supervisor on a railroad construction detail. He was forced to return home sooner than expected, however, owing to the terminal illness of his father. . . [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Collected Poems of D. H. Lawrence

      London: Martin Secker 1928 - Two volumes. First edition, first printing. Publisher's dark brown cloth, lettered in gilt, green top stains; in the original cream dust jackets, lettered in brown. Books about fine, with some minor offsetting to the free endpapers, else fine; unclipped dust jackets, with some light wear and a few short closed tears to the extremities, some toning to the spines, minor chips to the spine ends, Vol. II with a closed tear to the rear flap fold, a few light spots of minor soiling to the otherwise bright panels. Overall, a near fine set in the fragile dust jackets. Roberts A43a. The Collected Poems of D.H. Lawrence is a two volume anthology of Lawrence's poetical works. The first volume contains Lawrence's rhyming poetry and includes "Twilight," "Tarantella," "Lilies in the Fire," and "Snap-Dragon," while the second volume collects his un-rhyming poems, including "A Bad Beginning," "Moonrise," "Paradise Re-Entered," and "Frost Flowers," among others. In his preface, Lawrence explained that he "tried to establish a chronological order, because many of the poems are so personal that, in their fragmentary fashion, they make up a biography of an emotional and inner life they need the order of time, as that is the order of experience." Accordingly, The Collected Poems of D.H. Lawrence can be viewed as much a poetic memoir as a compendium of verse. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Masterman and Sir John Simon - are lacking, and Masterman had died the year before publication at the age of 54. For those attending the Liberal Summer School, founded in 1921, "there was need for fresh investigation of the economic and social problems by which the nation is now faced, and for the formulation of a policy to deal with them, starting from the Liberal standpoint and aiming at the application of Liberal ideas" (Preface). This report, which came to be known as the "Liberal Yellow Book", is scarce today in the publisher's deluxe binding, and all the more so thus inscribed. The remaining signatures belong to Herbert Samuel, E. H. Gilpin, Hubert Phillips, E. D. Simon (the vice-chairman), J. Menkou, H. D. Henderson, W. McG. Eager (secretary) and A. R. Burnett-Hurst (statistician).

        Memoirs of a Fox-Hunting Man

      Faber & Gwyer Ltd, 1928. 1st edition. Hardcover. Fine blue boards with gilt lettering, fine endpapers and pages with untrimmed edges fore and below as issued, with the first-issue points of the misaligned 'o' of 'platoon' on p. 365 and 'merey' for 'merely' on page 191. The dustjacket is not price-clipped, has had a modicum of conservation at the extremities, and shows very well. In sum, a very nice example of the author's famous first volume, published anonymously at the outset, in his Sherston Trilogy, his fictionalised autobiography drawing on his experiences of before, during and after the First World War.

        A COLLECTION OF THREE LIMITED EDITIONS: THE EMPEROR JONES. [and] THE HAIRY APE. [and] STRANGE INTERLUDE

      Boni and Liveright, Horace Liveright, New York 1928 - 267 x 197 mm (10 1/2 x 7 3/4"). 90 pp., [1] leaf (colophon); 114 pp., [1] leaf (colophon); 4 p.l., 298 pp., [1] leaf (blank), [1] leaf (colophon). Three separately published works in three volumes. Each work ONE OF 775 COPIES (750 of these for sale) SIGNED BY O'NEILL; FIRST EDITION of "Strange Interlude." First two works in publisher's patterned cloth backed with black buckram, both with pictorial dust jacket and in (somewhat worn) publisher's slipcase with paper label; "Strange Interlude" in publisher's stiff vellum over bevelled boards, with original tissue dust jacket and (very worn and crudely repaired) original paper slipcase. First two works with 17 illustrations (eight in "Emperor Jones," nine in "Hairy Ape") by Alexander King, as called for. Top of "Ape" dust jacket spine neatly replaced, "Interlude" vellum quite spotted (as almost always with this book), tissue jacket of "Interlude" rather torn and creased, otherwise very well preserved: the printed jackets generally clean and fine, and the volumes themselves unworn and internally without significant signs of use. This is a pleasing group of signed limited edition copies of three ground-breaking plays by the only American playwright to win the Nobel Prize for literature. The story of a railway porter who becomes the oppressive dictator of a West Indian island, "The Emperor Jones" (1920) was the play that made O'Neill (1888-1953) famous. In it, O'Neill begins to demonstrate the innovations Day considers his great contribution to American theater: "naturalism, expressionism, modern psychology, previously forbidden themes, and previously unknown plumbing of psychic and spiritual depths." It makes great use of the soliloquy, one of O'Neill's favorite devices: in six of the eight scenes, Jones is the only character who speaks. "The Hairy Ape" (1922) deals with issues of belonging and alienation, revealing O'Neill's sympathy with the laboring class oppressed by the wealthy and privileged elite. O'Neill won his third Pulitzer Prize in eight years for "Strange Interlude," an experimental play that was, in Day's words, "a surprisingly popular success although its nine acts consume five hours." Its story of a 20th century Everywoman touches on the issues of promiscuity, abortion, insanity, and adultery (the controversial content perhaps explaining some of its popularity). This grouping is intended to provide an opportunity to acquire three signed copies of important American plays at an advantageous price. Each work ONE OF 775 COPIES (750 of these for sale) SIGNED BY O'NEILL; FIRST EDITION of "Strange Interlude.". [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        RAWDON'S ROOF

      1928 - number seven of the Woburn Books. London: Elkin Mathews & Marrot, 1928. Original grey paper-covered boards decorated in blue-grey, with similarly-decorated dust jacket. First Edition, being No. 187 of 530 copies SIGNED by D.H. Lawrence. This was the seventh volume of this publisher's "Woburn Books" series (there would ultimately be 18 titles) -- and it is the most sought-after today, since among the series' authors Lawrence is the one who remains the most popular. Rawdon, estranged from his wife, declares that never again will a woman sleep under his roof; yet he has an affair with a nearby married woman, who one night arrives at his door declaring that she has just left her husband and needs a roof over her head.~This is a close-to-fine copy (very slight wear at the spine); the dust jacket is very good, likewise with wear at the spine.
