        Gambado on Horseback

      n.p, n.d, ca. 1928 - A preliminary study for the plate "The Dray Horse makes a Noble Hunter" for An Academy for Grown Horsemen, by "Geoffrey Gambado" (Sir William H. Bunbury), published by Wm. E. Rudge, Mt. Vernon, NY, 1929. Gordon Ross (1873-1946) was a prolific artist, working mostly in watercolor, from his early days in his native Scotland. As a book artist he tackled everything from Dickens to Shakespeare, including a number of titles for The Limited Editions Club. He is also noted for his sporting work, which included illustrations for The Derrydale Press, Surtees's Jorrocks Jaunts and Jolities, and several large prints of notable sportsmen, including Sir Thomas Lipton, Hugo Meynell, Peter Beckford, and Surtees himself. The eminent collector A. Edward Newton, who wrote the introduction to the Surtees edition, praised Ross in his book End Papers: "No one now living in Great Britain and doing work in his line can compare with Gordon Ross, now living in New York.He has no living superior; I doubt if he has his equal for the very quality needed to illustrate a humorous classic." A superb draftsman, with a gift for portraiture, Ross's work has an ingratiating quality of lively elegance; his originals very seldom come on the market Image 10 x 11 inches; matted and framed to 17 x 17 inches overall. Pen, crayon and watercolor illustration.

        Mr. Pope and Other Poems

      New York: Minton, Balch, & Company. 1928. First. First edition, first state, with his poem Ode to the Confederate Dead tipped-in. Octavo. Cloth with applied printed label. Housed in a custom cloth clamshell cased with morocco label gilt. Boards very slightly splayed and rubbed, short tear on one leaf, else near fine lacking the dustwrapper. Inscribed by the author to the Cowleys: "For Peggy and Malcolm from Allen. August 14, 1928." He also inserts the word "him" after "distract" in the line reading "Distract from nonentity: his metaphors are dead" on page 31. The author's first solely-authored volume of poetry inscribed in the year of publication with a very a significant association. Shortly after Tate began a relationship with his soon-to-be wife Caroline Gordon, they moved to "Robber Rocks," a house in Patterson, New York, with friends Slater and Sue Brown, Hart Crane, and Cowley. Cowley was one of the few reviewers who understood the seeming contradictions in Tate's thought and writing, those stemming from his overlapping identities as a Catholic, a Southern Agrarian, and a man of letters. Despite admitting that "it almost seems that his essays are being written by three persons, not in collaboration but in rivalry," he nonetheless conceded, "I doubt that any other poet in this country is a better judge of his contemporaries than Allen Tate" (quoted in Thomas A. Underwood, Allen Tate: Orphan of the South, Princeton UP, 2000; p. 237). .

        Lonesomest Doll, The.

      Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin, 1928. - The Rackham-Illustrated Edition"A Difficult Title To Find in Good Condition"[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. BROWN, Abbie Farwell. The Lonesomest Doll. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. New York: Houghton Mifflin, 1928. First edition illustrated by Rackham, published only in America. Octavo (8 1/4 x 5 7/8 in; 209 x 150 mm). [8]. 80, [1], [3, blank] pp. Title page, frontispiece and two full page illustrations in rose and greenish-blue, twenty-six black and white drawings. Original tan, pictorially stamped, cloth. A remarkably fresh, clean, and exceptionally fine copy in the original color pictorial dust jacket."The text is printed on a poor and brittle paper, so it is a difficult title to find in good condition" (Riall)."There is no more famous illustrator of children's books in the entire world than Arthur Rackham. Indeed, there are many people who make a point of buying every Rackham book regardless of subject, merely for the sake of the pictures. For, unlike that of many illustrators, Mr. Rackham's work appeals equally to the child and the adult, delighting the young reader by its whimsical humor and multitude of perfectly executed details, and adults by its beauty and artistry.In 'The Lonesomest Doll' Mr. Rackham has found an unusually appealing theme, and he has contributed a series of thirty-one of his unique illustrations (four in color), making a volume that should take its place as one of the finest gift books of the year. Miss Brown's charming story of the proud little queen and her beautiful lonesome doll has held a place for many years among the favorite books of the younger readers, and this new and beautiful edition should make it many new friends."

Barrie later wrote a prose version of the play, PETER AND WENDY (1911). There is no 1904 Scribner edition of PETER PAN, it is a ghost.

Bleiler (1978), p. 16 (citing a Scribner edition and mis-dating it 1904). Cutler, p. 200. A fine copy in very good printed dust jacket with several closed tears and some mild dust soiling.

        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.'
