        MÉTROPOLIS - IN "LA PETITE ILLUSTRATION" NO 372

      Paris: Imp. de L'Illustration, 1928. A Fine copy in photo-illustrated wrappers, with 20 sepia-toned stills from Fritz Lang's 1927 masterpiece Metropolis. This special 12-page issue (3 March, 1928) is dedicated entirely to the film. The French premiere of Metropolis was on October 14th, 1927, shown 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 anticipation of that event. A scarce piece of ephemera related to one of the towering giants of the silent film era. The original version of the film was heavily cut for its American debut, and as a result, any of the original printed material from the film has become historically significant, and quite desirable. Auction results for this item are a mixed bag; copies will invariably turn up from time to time, but they're usually worn, torn, soiled or worse. This is the copy that won't disappoint, with bright ivory pages and little to be desired - the best copy we've seen or handled.

        Ichabod Crane

      1928. Watercolor and pen and black ink on paper, signed "Arthur Rackham" (lower right). 8-1/2 x 6-3/4 in. Matted and framed. Watercolor and pen and black ink on paper, signed "Arthur Rackham" (lower right). 8-1/2 x 6-3/4 in. Rackham's superb illustration of the hapless schoolmaster of Sleepy Hollow, Ichabod Crane. Rackham has captured the essence of Irving's description: "He was tall, but exceedingly lank, with narrow shoulders, long arms and legs, hands that dangled a mile out of his sleeves, feet that might have served for shovels, and his whole frame most loosely hung together. His head was small, and flat at top, with huge ears, large green glassy eyes, and a long snipe nose, so that it looked like a weather-cock, perched upon his spindle neck, to tell which way the wind blew. To see him striding along the profile of a hill on a windy day, with his clothes bagging and fluttering about him one might have mistaken him for the genius of famine descending upon the earth, or some scarecrow eloped from a cornfield" Provenance: Estate of Connecticut artist Rachel Breck. Literature: Irving, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (George G. Harrap & Co, 1928); Latimore & Haskell, pp. 63-4; Riall, pp. 164-5

        The Argonaut Manuscript Limited Edition of the Collected Works of Frank Norris

      Garden City: Doubleday, Doran, 1928. 10 vols., 8vo, original japan vellum binding, in fine condition. Limited to 245 numbered sets with a manuscript leaf of Norris?s most famous novel, McTeague (a horrendous tale of avarice and violence which became the basis for Von Stroheim?s Greed). The manuscript leaf is in the publisher?s printed envelope. It is an interesting leaf from early in the book and exhibits many textual additions and corrections. Incredibly, the publisher decided to break up the original working manuscript for arguably the most famous novel set in San Francisco before The Maltese Falcon, and enclosed a leaf in vol. one of every set. Some of these leaves have inevitably been lost or misplaced; the Bancroft Library is attempting to reassemble the manuscript digitally by scanning every extant leaf they can gain access to.

Autograph musical manuscript full score of the complete work, signed. Together with an autograph letter to Maurice Ravel, the dedicatee

      Amsterdam. 1928. Large folio (356 x 271 mm.). 1 (title), 2 (blank), 3-20 (music), 21-[24] (blank) pp. Notated in purple ink on printed 22-stave music paper issued by B[reitkopf] & H[ärtel] (Nr. 13 C). Autograph note "m.s. II" to upper left corner of title, identifiying score as the second of two autograph manuscripts. Further autograph dates and signatures: "Willem Pijper 1928" to upper right corner of first page of music; "22 Mei 1928" to end of first movement (p. 6); "9 Augs. 1928" to end of second movement (p. 12); "19 Augs. 1928"; "6-7 Sept. 1928 Amsterdam." Fair copy with occasional autograph corrections. Rehearsal numbers from 1 to 37 added in blue pencil in the hand of the composer; autograph footnotes in ink referring to rehearsal numbers, with footnote references in red ink, to pp. 14- 15. Slightly worn and browned; minor creasing to lower outer corner. With: Autograph letter signed in full from Willem Pijper to Maurice Ravel, March 5, 1929. 1-1/2 pp. Small folio (274 x 210 mm). In black ink on personal letterhead with "Willem Pijper Saxen Weimarlaan 56 Amsterdam" printed at upper left. In French. Pijper sends the manuscript of his string quartet no. 4 to Ravel as a birthday present (Ravel's birthday was March 7). He thanks Ravel for his personal acquaintance during a common stay of a few days at Chougny (a village in central France, halfway between Bourges and Dijon) in December 1928 and for his acceptance of the dedication of the work. He expresses his hope to see Ravel again soon and wishes him good luck with his Concerto (apparently one of Ravel's two piano concertos, both begun in 1929) and with Joan of Arc, a projected opera. "I remember with deep joy the few days we spent together at Chougny in such a pleasant atmosphere in December. We had so many non-musical things to discuss that we had no time to discuss music. But I will always treasure the memory of the few moments when we did talk about the masterpieces of French music by Berlioz, Debussy, Couperin, and yourself. It is in memory of our first meeting that I wanted to dedicate this little quartet to you." . This manuscript was formerly in the possession of Maurice Ravel. Kloppenburg: Thematisch-bibliografische catalogus, pp. 127-28 (not recording the present autograph). Another manuscript, consisting of 18 pages of music and dated as in the present autograph, is at the Koninklijke biblioteek in The Hague. The work was published posthumously by Lengnick, London, in 1952. The present autograph letter is that which accompanied the manuscript sent to Ravel. "Pijper was, with Vermeulen, the most important composer in the Netherlands in the first half of the 20th century; his teaching and writing also made a significant impact. He grew up in a working-class Calvinist milieu in a village outside Utrecht... Already studying the organ, he left school in 1911 to enroll in the Utrecht Toonkunst Muziekschool, where he studied composition with Johan Wagenaar and the piano with Helena van Lunteren-Hansen. His final examination, in 1915, was in theory, and he continued composition lessons privately for three more years... A radical new compositional style... made Pijper leader of the Dutch musical avant garde. He represented the Netherlands at the founding of the ISCM in Salzburg, 1922; soon after, backed by Sem Dresden, he established the Dutch ISCM section... The String Quartet no.4 (1928), based on an octatonic germ cell, attains polymetric extremes; during moments in the finale, none of the players share a common downbeat." Harrison Ryker in Grove Music Online.

        His Amatory Poems

      New York: The Bennett Libraries, Inc., 1928. - Shakespeare's Love Poems and SonnetsOne of Two Hundred Large-Paper Copies Specially Bound by Bennett of New YorkSHAKESPEARE, William. Will Shakespeare. His Amatory Poems. The Sonnets. Venus and Adonis. The Rape of Lucrece. The Passionate Pilgrim. Elaborated with Frontispiece Portrait and Four Engravings from Classic Originals. New York: The Bennett Libraries, Inc., 1928. One of 200 Large-Paper Copies printed on Holland Pannekoek Paper (out of a total edition of 1,000).Royal octavo (9 3/8 x 6 1/2 inches; 239 x 165 mm.). [ii, limitation], 303, [1, blank] pp. Title page and half-titles printed in red and black. Engraved portrait frontispiece and four plates.Publishers (bound by Bennett, NY) full mottled calf, covers ruled in blind. Spine with five raised bands ruled in blind with two maroon morocco gilt lettered labels, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, others uncut. A fine copy, many of the pages uncut.Shakespeare's Sonnets is the title of a collection of 154 sonnets first published in 1609 and accredited to William Shakespeare which cover themes such as the passage of time, love, beauty and mortality. The first 17 poems, traditionally called the procreation sonnets, are addressed to a young man urging him to marry and have children in order to immortalize his beauty by passing it to the next generation. Other sonnets express the speaker's love for a young man; brood upon loneliness, death, and the transience of life; seem to criticize the young man for preferring a rival poet; express ambiguous feelings for the speaker's mistress; and pun on the poet's name. The final two sonnets are allegorical treatments of Greek epigrams referring to the "little love-god" Cupid.Venus and Adonis (1592-1593) is a poem by William Shakespeare with a plot based on passages from Ovid's Metamorphoses. It is a complex, kaleidoscopic work, using constantly shifting tone and perspective to present contrasting views of the nature of love.The Rape of Lucrece (1594) is a narrative poem by William Shakespeare about the legendary Lucretia. In his previous narrative poem, Venus and Adonis (1593), Shakespeare had included a dedicatory letter to his patron, the Earl of Southampton, in which he promised to write a "graver work". Accordingly, The Rape of Lucrece has a serious tone throughout.The Passionate Pilgrim (1599) is an anthology of 20 poems collected and published by William Jaggard that were attributed to "W. Shakespeare" on the title page, only five of which are considered authentically Shakespearean. These are two sonnets, later to be published in the 1609 collection of Shakespeare's Sonnets, and three poems extracted from the play Love's Labour's Lost. Internal and external evidence contradicts the title-page attribution to Shakespeare. Five were attributed to other poets during his lifetime, and two were published in other collections anonymously.

        Photo Album - HMS Kent - Unique and Rare Photos in the Far East

      China, 1928. China, Japan, 1928-1931. Original photograph album of a British Royal Marine who served on the HMS Kent, flagship of the China Station fleet, in the early years of Nationalist leadership of Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek, and during the Chinese Civil War. Features rare snapshot photographs of the re-patriation ceremony for remains of President Sun-Yat-Sen. Also with numerous snapshot views of Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong, Hankou, Nanjing, Qingdao, Weihai, Xiamen, and Dalian in China, views of Yokohama, Tokyo, Kamakura, Kobe and Kyoto in Japan, and a scant few views of Saigon, Bangkok, British Labuan, and Manila. Contains 182 gelatin silver print photographs, a scant few being photographic postcards, each mounted with corners onto taupe cardstock leaves. Oblong Quarto. String-tied album measuring approximately 39 x 29 cm, brown cloth boards, titled in gilt to spine. Photographs measure approximately 13 x 8 cm, with a commemorative composite frontis photograph measuring 26,5 x 18 cm. Minor wear to boards, mainly to spine, otherwise in Very Good Condition, with crisp, pleasing photographs. Introductory views of HMS Kent, her Admiral, Captain, Commander, and her crew, are followed by spectacular scenes of Chinese commerce, long-standing customs surrounding death and religion, sacred monuments and ancient iconic fortifications, junks designed for a variety of uses, and the like, captured firsthand by an unidentified Royal Marine. Immediately subsequent to the Northern Expedition for the reunification of China in 1928, during an era of economic and social reform led by Kuomintang (KMT) military leader Chiang Kai-shek, an era also marked with civil war, HMS Kent arrived in China for a three year commission. As such, the marine was privy to observe firsthand certain historically significant events such as the repatriation funeral of the remains of Sun-Yat-Sen (founding father of the Republic of China) from from Beijing to a Mausoleum in Nanjing. Prisoners of war were also photographed as they performed arduous labour, chained together, for their captors. Warships lining the Whapoa dock, a fallen Chinese aircraft, burnt remnants of the SS Haiching attacked by pirates in 1929, and a junk armed with cannons, provide an uncommon pictorial record of a fractured nation seeking cohesiveness. One hundred and nineteen (119) photographs pertain to China, with views from Shanghai, Peking, Hong Kong, Hankow, Nanking, Tsingtao, Dairen, Amoy, and the Yangtse river. Highlights include traditional funeral processions, rivers crowded with sampans, merchants, night scenes, the Hong Kong Peak funicular railway, the Great Wall, enormous ancient city gates and city walls once impenetrable by foreigners, Pekin's Winter Palace, Temple of Heaven, jade pagodas and bronze statues, the Ming Tomb guardian statues, and city streets adorned with a plethora of flags. At least two voyages were made to Japan, rendering twenty-seven (27) photographs. These include crisp views of the Hasedera Kannon Temple in Kamakura and a young guard at its entrance, Mount Fuji on a clear day, the Imperial Palace in Tokyo, a rail journey to Kyoto, Kobe's theatre street and night lights, and the sulphur springs at Unzen. At Saigon, where 5 photographs were taken, on 16 December 1930, King of Siam Prajadhipok or Rama VII (1893-1941) visited the HMS Kent, together with his wife, Queen Rambhai Barni, the royals posing for a group photograph. The old and new palaces of Bangkok are seen in 5 photographs. Singapore appears in ten photographs; British Borneo is seen in five; and Manila in four. Dispersed within the volume are seven hand-drawn charts, photographed and detailing various voyages made over the three years, including HMS Kent's maiden voyage from Chatham to Wei Hai Wei to join the 5th Cruiser Squadron on the China Station in 1928. A single photograph also captures a manuscript summary of the Commission, headed "HMS Kent in the Far East From Aug 1928 to March 1931. Commissioned on 22 June 1928, HMS Kent (54) was assigned to the 5th Cruiser Squadron on the China Station, serving as flagship for the bulk of her career. She was the base for a series of seven heavy cruisers built for the Royal Navy and the Royal Australian Navy. During the voyage illustrated in this album, in 1929-30, she was fitted with an aircraft catapult as well as a High-Angle Control System to direct her anti-aircraft guns.. Very Good.
