        K.A.M. JUBILEE BOOK 1847-1927

      1928 - Publishers cloth. 8vo. 183 pages. 24 cm. First edition. Bound in black cloth with gilt lettering, includes pastedown photograph of the new temple of the congregation. Includes multiple essays on the history of the oldest congregation in Chicago, illustrations and advertisements throughout. "Kehillat Anshe Ma'arab, the first Jewish congregation, was established Nov. 3, 1847, when a constitution was adopted and signed by fourteen members. Morris L. Leopold, a young man of twenty-six, born in Laubheim, Württemberg, was elected president. The Jewish Burial-Ground Society turned over to the congregation all its property, including the cemetery, and dissolved. Kehillat Anshe Ma'arab held its first regular service in a private room on the second floor of a building on the southwest corner of Lake and Wells streets, and in 1849 leased a lot on Clark street, between Adams and Quincy streets where the post-office now stands) , on which it erected a frame synagogue. In 1853 this congregation established a day-school, where Hebrew was taught in addition to the regular common-school curriculum. This school was in operation for twenty years. In 1856 a new cemetery on Green Bay road (now North Clark street) and Belmont avenue was purchased. In 1857 the old burial-ground, having been included in the city extensions, had to be abandoned. In 1882 the ground was sold to the park commissioners, and it is now merged in Lincoln Park. On the date of the closing of the old burial-ground (June 11, 1857) the first interment in the new cemetery took place. In 1868 the congregation purchased the northwest corner of Wabash avenue and Peck court, with the church standing upon it. The latter was converted into a synagogue. In the great fire of 1871 the synagogue escaped destruction, but all the records, which had been placed by Joseph Pollak, the secretary of the congregation, and at that time clerk of Cook county, in a vault of the court-house, were lost. In 1873 Dr. Merzbacher's prayer-book was adopted. An organ, choir, and family pews had been introduced several years before. In the fire of1874, Kehillat Anshe Ma'arab lost the synagogue on Wabash avenue, and in December of that year it purchased the church and site on the corner of Indiana avenue and Twenty-sixth street. The church was converted into a synagogue, and the property on Wabash avenue and Peck court was sold. In 1888 Jacob Rosenberg, then vice-president, presented to the congregation twenty acres of land in the town of Jefferson, to be used as a burial-ground. This is now called . ’Mount Ma'arab Cemetery. ’ The bodies in the North Clark street cemetery were transferred to Mount Ma'arab, and the vacated property was sold. The latter is now completely built over, and all traces of the former cemetery have vanished. In 1889 Kehillat Anshe Ma'arab found that most of its members had moved farther south. The location of the synagogue being, therefore, no longer convenient for the majority, a plot on the southeast corner of Indiana avenue and Thirty-third street was purchased, and the temple now in use was erected. The latter has a seating capacity of 1, 500 persons. The membership is 175. In 1902 the Einhorn ritual, in the English version, was adopted.

        Affidavit of records set by Harry R. Gunn during The Great American Foot Race in 1928

      - Legal-size partially typed document (approximately 13" x 8.5"). A couple of old folds, modest age-toning, in an old frame (and easily removable), very good. The document attests to eight records set by Harry R. Gunn during the cross country race, and is Signed by officials of the race including the race's promoter, the well-known huckster C.C. ("Cash and Carry") Pyle, head referee of the event and football legend Red Grange (Cash was responsible for Grange leaving college to play pro football), and several others: race judge and tractor engine manufacturer Charles Walter Hart, race judge Hugo Quist (sports promoter and Sonja Henie's manager and trainer), "Head Checker" and professional football player, Ted Bucklin, as well as three wire service correspondents who were covering the race, and is notarized by a New York notary public. The Race was a promotion, similar in some aspects to a dance marathon, featuring 68 walkers who traversed the country from Los Angeles to New York, the winner, a 19-year-old Cherokee Indian, Andy Payne, received $25,000. Gunn, the son of a wealthy Los Angeles business man, finished 28th. However his father had made substantial bets that he would finish the race, and presumably this affidavit was a necessity for him in collecting. Gunn was one of the runners featured in the interesting documentary film of the event *The Great American Race* made in 2002. An interesting and tangible artifact of an interesting footnote in American popular culture. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Svet, ktery se smeje (The World Which is Laughing)

      Prague: Odeon 1928 - Octavo, wrappers, 91(iv) pp. 7 plates, with photo-collage cover by Teige. Six b/w illustrations by Grosz, Léger, others and seven photographic plates, book design by Teige. This forms Part I of the series O humoru clownech a dadaistech.It is comprised of essays composed from 1924 to 1926. Both this and its sequel, along with other work written by Teige at the time, examines the function of laughter and absurdity and its unique function in human life. It also was Teige's critical appraisal of dada --- he would praise it for clearing the ground of the old, but reject it as a part of the past, whereas constructivism was the path of the new; he would incorporate the humor and absurdity in his constructivism nonetheless, as a counterweight to the rational bias. This is a classic devetsil work. Despite its renown, only one copy of this first edition found in North America libraries. 800 [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Man Who Knew Coolidge

      NY: Harcourt Brace. (1928). Lewis' novel of Lowell Schmaltz, "friend of Babbitt and constructive citizen." One-third of the story was first published in "that volcanic magazine, The American Mercury." The Man Who Knew Coolidge is one of Lewis' lesser known titles but followed on the heels of some of his greatest successes. In the 1920s, he published Main Street, which his biographer called "the most sensational event in twentieth-century American publishing history" to that point, followed by Babbitt in 1922, Arrowsmith in 1925, and Elmer Gantry in 1927. Babbitt was awarded the Pulitzer Prize but Lewis declined the honor. In 1929, Lewis published Dodsworth, and in 1930 he became the first American writer to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. Fine in a fine dust jacket; a beautiful copy of one of the books that laid the foundation for his Nobel award. First Edition. Hardcover.

        Show Girl

      New York: Simon and Schuster. (1928). First. First edition. Boards a bit bowed, spine lettering rubbed and faded, a sound, about very good copy lacking the dustwrapper. Inscribed by the author to director and actor Erich von Stroheim with von Stroheim's bookplate: "To my very good friend 'Von'. Piously, J.P. McEvoy. Jan. 29 - '29 [with a sketch of a person]." The first of McEvoy's novels to feature Dixie Dugan, a Brooklyn-born showgirl who conquers Broadway and Hollywood. Dixie Dugan, based on the life and appearance of Louise Brooks, was the central character in several films including the Alfred Santell-directed Show Girl (1928) with Alice White and Donald Reed; Mervyn Leroy's 1930 Show Girl in Hollywood with White and Jack Mulhall; Le Masque d'Hollywood (1931) directed by Clarence Badger and John Daumery; and Dixie Dugan (1943) directed by Otto Brower. McEvoy is also known for his plays and novels which were adapted into films for W.C. Fields including It's the Old Army Game (1926), The Potters (1927), The Old Fashioned Way (1934), You're Telling Me! (1934), and It's a Gift (1934). Von Stroheim began his career as an actor (invariably playing Teutonic terrors and billed as "The Man You Love to Hate"), then directed several key silent films (Greed, Foolish Wives, etc.) before his legendary extravagance forced him to return to acting in the sound era, with notable roles in Grand Illusion, Sunset Boulevard, and several other films. A wonderful association. .

This example of the first printing of the 1928 Verlag Ernst Wasmuth edition (cited on page 96 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger&#39;s "The Photobook: A History Volume I", pages 66-67 of The Hasselblad Center&#39;s "The Open Book", and pages 48-49 of "The Book of 101 Books") is lacking its dust jacket, but is a lovely, most presentable copy whose front cover gilt lettering and ornament are still bright. There are slight smudges to the green cloth at both the heel and crown of the spine but otherwise the boards appear fresh and nice. The top edge shows a bit of light soiling and a couple of tiny brown spots, with the rest of the binding and textblock tight and clean, the plates exceptionally handsome and unmarred. There is a bit of a start to the front hinge as well as a previous owner&#39;s name and date (March &#39;29) in ink on the inside of the front board, but all in all this is an unusually nice copy of a stellar book. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its weight and value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase.
