        Peter Pan

      Hodder & Stoughton, London 1928 - 8vo, pp. 160. Original blue boards, title labels to front panel and spine. Glassine (not shown in photograph). Light offsetting to endpapers, otherwise a near fine copy in an about very good dustwrapper, spine and top edge sunned, top edge of rear panel ruched and chipped with loss near spine, wear to corners. First edition, issued as part of the Uniform Edition of the Plays of J.M.Barrie. Although first performed in 1904, the play had to wait another twenty-four years to be published. And Peter Pan himself had many prior incarnations, first appearing in 1902 in The Little White Bird, and again in 1911 in Peter And Wendy, the prose story most of us associate with the character. The flimsily-made dustwrapper doesn't often survive on this title. This one, though not perfect, is a nice example.

        The Argonaut Manuscript Edition of the Writings of Frank Norris

      Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc., Garden City, New York 1928 - Ten volumes, Octavo. . One of 245 sets. (Lacking the original manuscript leaf which the edition was issued with but with copies of two leaves). Volume VIII, McTeague, contains an introduction by Dreiser. Included with the set are two pages, photocopies of the original manuscript pages, from the McTeague manuscript. They show how Norris wrote and worked; he set up his page so one third on the left was blank and then used for corrections and additions. He did, also insert words into the text, as well as strike out. The pages have been enlarged from the originals.The top of the first page begins "a vague distress. As length just as the musicians were returning he stood up and whisperedenrgetically in his mother's ear." This corresponds to the last two paragraphs page 89 through second paragraph page 91.The second page begins "with each other. After this own peculiar fashion ÔSetting out with each other' Miss Baker had begun to call it." Many literary critics, including Henry L. Mencken, regard McTeague as the greatest of all American novels. The book itself abound with superlatives: it contains the finest characterization of a dentist in fiction; it is surely the greatest novel to use San Francisco for its setting; it is, in fact, a landmark in fiction, standing with Crane's Maggie and Dreiser's Sister Carrie in the forefront of the development of realism in American literature. Transposed into another medium, the plot became the vehicle for one of the most famous films of the silent screen Greed, directed by Eric von Stroheim. Norris's holograph material is genuinely rare. Indeed, except for unsigned pages from McTeague [the manuscript was taken apart and a leaf inserted in every set of the manuscript edition of the Works], Norris' autograph is practically unobtainable. Spines a little browned, a few with some spattering of brown spots, occasional light rubbing of edges, and dust soiling, bookplate a fine set white parchment over orange boards, front covers and spine stamped in gilt, top edge gilt [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Autograph letter signed in full to Hugo Balzer

      - "Along with his teacher Arnold Schoenberg and fellow pupil Anton Webern in the years before and immediately after World War I, [Berg] moved away from tonality to write free atonal and then 12-note music. At once a modernist and a Romantic, a formalist and a sensualist, he produced one of the richest bodies of music in the 20th century, and in opera, especially, he had few equals." Douglas Jarman in Grove onlineWritten during the period when Berg was actively engaged in the composition of Lulu, which extended from mid-1928 to the spring of 1934, at which point the opera was complete in short score.Balzer, founder of the Robert-Schumann-Konservatoriums, was music director in Düsseldorf, Detmold and Darmstadt variously in the 1930s and 1940s. 2 pp. Octavo. Dated June 10, 1931. With Berg's handstamp in blue-black ink to upper left corner: "Alban Berg / Gut Berghof / post: Sattendorf / am Ossiacher-See / Kärnten, Austria / Tel. Villach [1]395"). Together with autograph envelope addressed to Balzer at the Stadttheater in Freiburg with Berg's handstamp to verso with his address on Trauttmausdorffgasse 27 in Vienna. In German (with translation). Berg thanks Balzer for his recent letter, and tells him that he has also written to [Finance Minister] Weinberger. "Your kind letter reached me in a roundabout way. You probably have my letter of June 5th by now. In the same mail I wrote to Fin[ance] Min[ister] Weinberger. Hopefully success! . Please keep me in the loop."Letter creased at central fold and very slightly at margins; envelope slit at upper margin, upper right corner lacking where stamp has been removed, Berg's name in another hand to address panel.

Hartley, a research engineer at Bell Laboratories, wanted to establish a quantitative measure to compare the capacities of various types of communications systems - telephone, television, etc.-to transmit information.'

      London: Methuen. 1928. First. First edition. Decorations by E.H. Shepard. Offsetting from the jacket flaps else fine in very near fine dustwrapper with a couple of tiny nicks at the crown, and a little subtle tanning to the spine. A book in which we learn the derivation of the game of Poohsticks; it is shown that Tiggers don't climb trees; and ultimately we leave Pooh and Christopher Robin in an enchanted place. Or perhaps it's the other way around. A lovely copy. .
