        Black Sparta: Greek Stories

      London: Jonathan Cape,, 1928. Octavo. Original blue boards, titles to spine gilt, publisher's device to rear board blind. With the bookplate of Herbert Boyce Satcher to front pastedown. Extremities lightly bumped, spine toned and slightly pulled, with a gentle crease. A very good copy. First edition, first impression. With a presentation inscription to the front free endpaper: "What else is goodness, what of man's endeavours / Or God's high grace, so lovely, so great: / To stand from fear set free, to breathe & wait, / And shall not VIVIAN be loved forever? / Gilbert Murray / from Naomi Mitchison / Summer 1928". These lines are closely adapted from a passage found in The Bacchae of Euripides, or more precisely, the English translation produced by Murray, who was one of the leading classicists of his generation (ODNB). While Mitchison was a Labour Party activist, Murray was a prominent Liberal, with one candidate for the"Vivian" of the inscription therefore being Liberal politician Vivian Phillips. A presentation copy with a message shared between two writers who might have been on opposing sides in one sense but were nevertheless warm friends.

"It claims to be a guide, both geographical and ethical, for pilgrims to the Holy Land, but it carries the reader far off course, to Turkey, Tartary, Persia, Egypt, and India. It was an important influence on subsequent English writers from Chaucer to Shakespeare, and was the prototype in English of the popular genre of the fabulous travel book" (Osborne, Oxford Companion). The illustrations were drawn by Valenti Angelo from those in early editions and manuscripts. The type was designed by Rudolph Koch, here used for the first time in America. The text of this Grabhorn edition is taken from that of the English edition of 1725. One of an edition of only 150 copies.Ransom, p. 302 (no. 12).

        Pépa Bonafé

      Marcel Picard, Paris 1928 - 1928 COLOR LITHOGRAPH, one of Carlu's most celebrated posters. A classic Art Deco poster, showing cubist influences, by Jean Carlu, one of the early twentieth-century's preeminent poster designers. On his famous image of the comedienne Pépa Bonafé, Carlu explained: "The Pépa Bonafé agent asked me to create a poster but I was not, like Loupot, a posterist of women. I did not feel comfortable. However, by stylizing her profile, I immediately caught the resemblance. Pépa Bonafé did not look her best, but she understood that this poster on walls would be excellent publicity. I combined curves and straight lines so that I could associate the mask of joy with the mask of sadness." Paris: Marcel Picard, 1928. 22 ½ x14 ¾ in, 570x370mm. Linen backed. Clean folds, otherwise fine.

        Hawaiian Sesquicentennial Commemorative half-dollar

      Philadelphia: Philadelphia Mint, 1928. Silver coin, 30 mm., about extremely fine, profile bust of Captain Cook on obverse, Hawaiian chieftain on reverse; in a sealed plastic case. First coin issued in honour of Cook. A bright and very good copy of a rare Cook coin. Klenman, in his The Faces of Captain Cook, lists this as the first commemorative coin (rather than medal) issued in honour of Cook.The Hawaiians produced this coin in 1928 to commemorate the sesquicentenary of Cook's first landfall, and the 'Captain Cook Hawaii half-dollar is perhaps the most elusive coin in the U.S. Commemorative Series' (Klenman). The original design was by Juliette Mae Fraser, a Honolulu artist, and the coin was then prepared by Chester Beach, a prominent sculptor-medallist. The obverse bears a profile bust of Cook, facing left, based on one of the Wedgwood cameo portraits. The eight small triangles arranged below the bust represent the eight major volcanic islands of the archipelago - Oahu, Hawaii, Niihau, Kauai, Molokai, Lanai, Kahoolawe and Maui. The reverse depicts a Hawaiian chieftain standing on a hill-top overlooking Waikiki, his arm raised in a welcoming gesture.Struck in a significantly smaller number than any of the comparable commemorative half dollars, the coin has been avidly collected since its release, and is uncommonly offered for sale.

        Autograph letter signed in German to Mr. Pollak

      1928. Freud, Sigmund (1856-1939). Autograph letter signed, in German, to Austrian artist Max Pollak (1886-1970). 1 page, on his personal stationery. Vienna, August 5, 1928. 230 x 150 mm. Fine. English translation included. To the painter and printmaker Max Pollak, thanking him for sending a copy of his color aquatint of the dancer Tatjana Barbakoff to “Frau Eitingon.” This refers to the wife of Freud’s colleague, the noted psychoanalyst Max Eitingon (1881-1943), who had undergone analysis with Freud in 1908-9 and went on to found the Berlin Psychoanalytic Clinic, the International Psychoanalytic Association and several other psychoanalytic organizations. The etching was evidently a gift from Freud, for he states that “I would gladly have sent the purchase amount of S140 or $20 to you in Stockholm, if I had been sure you wouldn’t soon be changing your location in Sweden. If I hear nothing more from you, then I will remain in your debt until we are both in Vienna again.” Pollak had recently emigrated from Vienna to the United States, which is why Freud gave a dollar figure for the purchase price. Freud had known Pollak since at least 1914, when Pollak was commissioned to make a large portrait etching of Freud seated at his desk among his antiquities. Freud himself owned a copy of Pollak’s etching of Barbakoff, which is now preserved at the Freud Museum in London. Regarding Freud as an art collector, see "Sigmund Freud and Art" (1989).
