      New York: Boni and Liveright, Horace Liveright, 1928. Each work ONE OF 775 COPIES (750 of these for sale) SIGNED BY O'NEILL; FIRST EDITION of "Strange Interlude." n. Hardcover. 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.

      Drei eh. Briefe u. ein masch. Brief, alle mit eh. U. Ägina, Athen u. Berlin, 8. IX. 1924 - 22.II. 1928. - 8°. u. 4°. Zus. 11 SS.- Knickfalten, leicht gebräunt.- Beiliegend 2 eh. Kuverts (Briefmarken ausgeschnitten). Alle an Bernhard Rang.- 8. IX. 1924: Er teilt mit, daß er sich große Sorgen um dessen Vater, Florens Christian Rang (1864–1924), macht u. schreibt: ". es wäre mir sehr schwer, wenn ich ihn nicht wiedersehen sollte. . - Ich las eigentlich wenig über Astrologie. Einmal etwas u. ein tollnärrisches Werk .". - Es folgen noch einige astrologische Betrachtungen u. der Hinweis, daß sich der Adressat an Dr. Franz Spunda in Wien wenden könne. - Der Brief schließt: "Hoffentlich kann ich bald nach Griechenland zurück, ein viertel Jahr sogar nach Deutschland kommen. Ich habe etwas mehr Zuversicht. Vielleicht auch, weil ich mir, nach 3 1/2 Jahren Kämpfen fürs Nordlicht, 1 Jahr Waffenstillstand gönne". - 13. IX. 1924: ". Da meines Bleibens in Athen nicht ist, fahre ich nach Alexandria u. dann weiter". Daher wird er "längere Zeit nichts Geistiges . produzieren, sondern Journalismus . treiben". Da er weiß, "dass nunmehr viele Deutsche sich gern u. tief mit meinem Werk beschäftigen", möchte er dies desto eifriger weiterführen. "Das ist aber, bei diesen Umständen, fast unmöglich". - Am 19. IX. 1924 teilt er mit, daß "alle, besonders auf der Gesandschaft, Partei" für ihn ergreifen u. er beschlossen hat, Athen zu verlassen. Weiterhin berichtet er über die Schwierigkeiten hinsichtlich seines Arbeitens. - Im Brief aus Berlin vom 22.II. 1928 schreibt er: "Gern lass ich Ihnen die Bücher zugehen, die Sie nicht zu haben scheinen. Eines enthält doch das Sonnett an Ihren Vater. Es heisst 'An Plato', ist aber duchaus dem eignen Freund geweiht. Mein Niedergang beruht darauf, daß sehr viel, aber nichts Treffliches über mich gesagt wurde. Sehr schmerzlich war es für Ihren Vater und mich, dass damals sein Aufsatz über das Nordlicht keine Unterkunft fand. Seit vier Jahren dichte ich nicht mehr, seit drei Jahren forsche ich nicht mehr. Nicht ich habe darüber entschieden, des Schicksals Bescheid hat mich vom Wege gedrängt".- Theodor Däubler unternahm 1921-26 eine Griechenlandreise mit Aufenthalten in Kleinasien, Palästina u. Ägypten. In dieser Zeit arbeitete er an der dritten, der Athener Fassung seines Hauptwerks "Das Nordlicht", die er 1930 in Frankreich vollendete u. die ungedruckt blieb.

      - Schwarze Kreide und Pinsel in Grau, auf Bütten, verso numeriert „N: 501". 11,2:22 cm. - Durchgehend etwas braunfleckig, sonst tadellos. Provenienz: Sammlung Prinz W. Argoutinsky-Dolgoroukoff, Paris, Lugt Suppl. 2602 d; versteigert in Berlin 8.11.1928, Nr. 523; Sammlung Adolf Gruis, Berlin, nicht bei Lugt. Literatur: Beck Z 705. Die produktivste Zeit van Goyens als Landschaftszeichner fällt in die Jahre 1651-1653. Die hier vorgestellte Zeichnung ist als autonomes Kunstwerk entstanden, auch wenn sie nicht signiert ist. Die Kreidelinien werden durch den unterschiedlich stark ausgeübten Druck modelliert und die Zeichnung mit Tuschpinsel laviert. Hierdurch erreicht der Künstler eine mehr malerische als graphische Wirkung. Das Format des Blattes entspricht mehr oder weniger der Standardgröße der bildmäßig ausgeführten Zeichnungen van Goyens. Jan van Goyen ist einer der bedeutendsten holländischen Landschaftsmaler des 17. Jahrhunderts. Nach Studien bei fünf verschiedenen Meistern (um 1606-um 1610) bildete er sich autodidaktisch weiter. Um 1615 ging er für etwa ein Jahr nach Frankreich und arbeitete danach einige Zeit selbständig in Leiden. Auf seine drängenden Bitten hin ermöglichte ihm sein Vater ein weiteres Studienjahr in Haarlem bei Esaias van de Velde (um 1591-1630). Diese Zeit hinterließ den nachhaltigsten Eindruck und machte sich in van Goyens Werk deutlich bemerkbar. Danach kehrte er zunächst nach Leiden zurück, zog jedoch 1632 nach Den Haag, wo er verstarb. Mit den Jahren wurde van Goyen zu einem bedeutenden Naturschilderer, der die Farbstimmung jeder Tages- und Jahreszeit hervorragend einzufangen wußte. Ganz im Gegensatz zu den Gemälden, die meist nicht vor der Natur entstanden, hat der Künstler um so „fleißiger vor der Natur gezeichnet. Tausende, z.T. aus aufgelösten Skizzenbüchern stammende, meist mit schwarzer Kreide gezeichnete Studien, legen davon Zeugnis ab. Wie die Gemälde, kennzeichnet sie ein flotter, loser Strich." (zitiert aus: Thieme/Becker, Bd. XIV, S. 462).

        2pp Signed Letter on polio and muscular atrophy to Morris Fishbein (editor of the AMA Journal) on Fidelity and Deposit Company of Maryland Letterhead (February 20, 1928)

      1928. Very Good. Typed two page letter on Fidelity and Deposit Company of Maryland signed (with full name) by Franklin D. Roosevelt with handwritten postscript, 8 paragraphs plus 5 lines of handwritten postscript. This letter (dated February 20, 1928) is addressed to Dr. Morris Fishbein regarding the effect of exercising in warm springs (primarily the findings of a Dr. Hubbard and the Trustees of the Georgia Warm Springs Foundation) on infantile paralysis aka polio (from which Roosevelt famously suffered). The pages have been folded, three hole punches along the lefthand margin of both pages which have been torn, small orange stain to first page, a staple has been removed from the upper lefthand corner. Very Good. Fishbein had made a name for himself as exposer of quack doctors and was the longtime editor of the Journal of the American Medical Association. Since FDR was intensely interested in possible cures and therapies for polio, this is an important letter illustrating his deep commitment to medical advancement along these lines. 'Our own work at Warm Springs seems to prove rather definitely that the affected muscle groups gain more rapidly when given exercises under water than the same grups do when given exercises on tables in the open air...' His handwritten remarks at the end are directed at Fishbein's inclination to characterize health spas and resorts in dubious terms. 'My only kick was about your telling people that advertising literature was being circulated for the 'resort' and that the 'thing' was evidently a 'kind of promotion' -- of course none of these happen to be true!'

Ein gewaltiges Werk, das mit seinem weitgefächerten Inhalt sowohl als auch mit der verschwenderischen Ausstattung mit sehr zahlreichen wunderbaren Tafeln (Zeichnungen, Fotografien, Farblithographien etc .) an die Großbände der Sarasins (Ceylon, Celebes, Nova Caledonia) erinnert. Hier wie dort ging es um Zecken und Menschen, um einmal etwas pauschal die Bandbreite des Forschungsgegenstandes zu benennen. Es deutet sich hier erstmalig an die enorm fleissige Forscherpersönlichkeit des Leonhard Schultze, der ab 1912 Schultze-Jena heiß, und im Laufe seines Lebens noch zahlreiche wichtige, hauptsächlich ethnologisch/anthropologische Werke veröffentlichte (Namaland und Kalahari / Forschungen im Innern der Insel Neuguinea / Indiana etc.).

        [Scrapbook and Photo Album]: Islip High School Sports

      Islip, New York. 1928-1930. Quarto. String-tie album with black cloth boards, gilt stamped "Scrap Book" on the front with 50 leaves. Very good with the front board detached but present and the pages moderately tone. A scrapbook and photo album concerned with two years of basketball, baseball, and track at Islip High School on Long Island, New York, 1928-1930, all dealing with the sporting activities of star basketball center and baseball pitcher Frank Sindler. Islip, NY, 1928-1930. The albums contains 15 gelatin silver photographs, newspaper clippings, including game recaps, box scores, previews of upcoming matches, feature stories, etc., along with event programs, a broadside announcement of a game, photographs of Sindler's coach and teammates, letters of recommendation from his high school principal and teachers, cloth letters or patches, particpant numbers, etc. The final few leaves hold similar material regarding the fall semester of Sindler's freshman year at Alfred University where he was on the football team. Sindler was clearly a star on the Islip High School basketball and baseball teams his junior and senior seasons, frequently leading the basketball team in scoring and turning in a no-hitter among his many wins for the baseball team; he went on to study at Auburn University, became an architect, and lived for decades designing buildings in Pensacola, Florida. A detailed look at New York high school sports, through the eyes of one participant, in the opening years of the Great Depression. .

        Archive of 22 autograph letters signed to David W. Nevins of New York City

      Moscow, 1928-1930. Substantial and revealing collection of correspondence from a young VOKS aparatchik to one David W. Nevins, proprietor of a New York travel agency called "The Open Road," through which he organized educational and cultural tours to the Soviet Union. Schlossberg, a Moscow University student who (we deduce from context) made her living in the summers as a tour guide and English, apparently befriended Nevins on one of his earlier trips to Moscow, when she served as his interpreter. In this group of letters, written over a roughly two-year period, we witness a young woman of the first Revolutionary generation speaking enthusiastically, even effusively, about her appreciation for the New Russia and also of her enthusiasm for the United States (she longs to visit New York City), its language (she repeatedly requests from Nevins the gift of an English slang dictionary), and especially its literature, which she receives in regular installments from her correspondent and which she devours at an impressive rate. Though the content of the letters is seldom straightforwardly political, they do give an excellent idea of life in Moscow in the decade following the Revolution, and especially of the comparative openness of East-West relations prior to the Second World War. Nevins and Schlossberg maintain a lively correspondence and frequently trade gifts of books and magazines. Among the many publications Schlossberg sends thanks for are The New Masses (in which Nevins apparently advertised his travel agency); a large collection of the Haldeman-Julius Little Blue Books; Michael Gold's Jews Without Money; and several works by John Dos Passos, whom Schlossberg regards as the greatest American novelist. Schlossberg also mentions meeting, in her capacity as tour guide, a number of American leftist luminaries including Robert Minor, William Gropper, Dos Passos and Scott Nearing. As noted by Ludmilla Stern in her Western Intellectuals and the Soviet Union 1920-1940 (Oxford: 2007) the years 1928-29 were momentous ones not only for the Soviet Union in general but especially for VOKS, the international cultural bureau for which the young Ms. Schlossberg worked. After Lenin's death attitudes towards foreigners in Russia grew increasingly suspicious; tour groups from the West came under greater and greater scrutiny, and we suspect it is no accident that Schlossberg's correspondence ends in 1930, the period of Stalin's consolidation of power and of an increasingly belligerent Russian stance towards the United States. As for biographical material on Schlossberg and Nevins, neither appears to have left much of a trace; we find no record in the Googleverse of Nevins's travel agency, and the only reference we find to Schlossberg is in a footnote to a 1999 scholarly article on the development of the Soviet propaganda publication USSR in Construction, where she is identified as still working for VOKS in 1931. Twenty-two manuscript letters, all but two with original stamped mailing envelopes, together with related ephemera including one small photographic print, several negatives, and three printed items. Text in (nearly flawless) English. Most letters 3-4pp (ca 300-500 words) on folded stationery, a few pieces with printed letterhead of the 2nd Moscow State University. Expected tears to mailing envelopes; occasional soil or fading to letters; generally Very Good or better.
