      [Denver: Welsh-Haffner Printing Co., 1928]., 1928. First edition. 8vo. Stiff wrappers, label pasted on front cover. 110 pp., preface, illustrated, portraits, Muggins was an unusual cow horse that was supposedly saddle-broken by the notorious Tom Horn. Many references to cattle drives, trails, and cattle companies. Charming account of the approximately 38-year life of a horse trained in Wyoming and put out to pasture in California. Inked gift inscriptions on the title page passing this book through a family from 1941 and 1969. Laid-in is a four-page printed flyer titled HORSE SENSE! by Muggins. The brochure was printed in 1928, a few days after the horse's death and written as if dictated by him, it argues against California Initiative No. 21, with restrictions that would legislate out of existence all of the color and romance that goes with rodeos,horse shows, horse races at fairs, polo games, making of western pictures for the screen, circuses and similar. Photograph of author Charles Camp on Muggins on cover of the flyer. A rare book with a rare brochure. Fine copy of a scarce item. An exceptional copy.

Boards foxed, as usual, else a near fine copy in worn, but sound, very good numbered slipcase, with evidence of neat, older repairs, the whole housed in a custom cloth chemise and quarter morocco and cloth slipcase. Of a limited edition of 775 copies Signed by O&#39;Neill, this is copy number 20 of 25 copies reserved for the publisher and author, and is Inscribed by Horace Liveright to Ernest Boyd: "To my dear Ernest -- this very special copy is most affectionately dedicated by his admiring friend -- and with added admiration for a certain girl called Madeleine who is responsible for the gift -- and, before it&#39;s too late -- a happy birthday. Horace Liveright." Both Boyd and O&#39;Neill were Irish-American writers, and co-editors of the short-lived literary journal The American Spectator. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Strange Interlude included many innovative stage techniques such as stream-of-consciousness soliloquies and asides.

Leonard-directed film featuring Norma Shearer and Clark Gable, as well as a 1988 television version directed by Herbert Wise and with a splendid cast headed by Kenneth Branagh.

Quarto (10 3/16 x 8 inches; 262 x 203 mm.). 102, [1], [1, blank] pp. Eight mounted color plates and thirty drawings in black and white. Publisher's vellum boards gilt lettered and ornamented, with gilt vignette. Top edge gilt, others untrimmed. A fine copy, partially uncut.By 1928, the traditional Rackham book - freely and lavishly illustrated, and lushly produced - was, culturally no longer in fashion nor financially feasible. Artistically, Rackham's work was being overshadowed by a younger generation. Publisher George Harrap stepped in, took up the challenge, and, through production economies, published a new kind of Rackham book. But if the volumes were not as spectacular as in the past, the artwork was no less impressive.Latimore and Haskell, pp. 63-64. Riall, pp. 164-165.

        Meistergeigen aus dem Besitz von Emil Hermann. 1926 - 27. (und:) Rare Violins Meistergeigen Emil Hermann. 1927 - 28. 2 Bände.

      Berlin - New York, (1928/1929).. Quer-Quart. 49 nn. Bll. (Katalog 1926 - 27); 57 nn. Bll. (Katalog 1927 - 28). Original-Broschur mit Kordelheftung.. Zwei seltene Kataloge des renommierten Geigenhändlers Emil Herrmann. - Biographische Angaben zu Emil Herrmann (1888 - 1963) sind schwer zu ermitteln. Bekannt ist, daß der gebürtige Deutsche früh dem Vorbild seines Vaters August folgte, der neben seiner Lehrertätigkeit auch mit Geigen handelte. Emil wanderte nach Amerika aus und die nach ihm benannte Firma erwarb Weltruf und gehörte neben Namen wie Walter Hamma (Stuttgart), Albert Phillip Hill (London) und Heinrich Ludwig Werro (Bern) bald zu den 'ersten Adressen' der beachteten Händler und Experten. - In beiden Katalogen sind zusammen 85 vor allem altitalienische Meistergeigen in je drei Ansichten (Vorder-, Seiten- und Hinteransicht) abgebildet. Der Katalog '1926 - 27' zeigt sowohl Instrumente, die teils schon verkauft waren - hier mit Hinweis auf die neuen Eigentümer ("berühmte Künstler und bekannte Sammler") - als auch solche, die sich noch im Besitz Herrmanns befanden. Herrmann hebt in seinem Vorwort (in faksimilierter Handschrift) hervor, daß unter den "auserlesenen Stücken" die "bedeutendsten italienischen Meister" vertreten sind. Am Ende dieses Kataloges befinden sich acht Tafeln, auf denen die Geschäftsräume und Werkstätten der Geschäftsniederlassungen in Berlin und New York zu sehen sind. Der Katalog '1927 - 28' wird im Vorwort von Herrmann als "zweiter Jahrgang" bezeichnet. Er trägt den Vermerk "Privat-collection Emil Herrmann". - Broschur von Katalog '1926-27' mit leichten Knickfalten und Randläsuren; fleckig. Broschur von Katalog '1927 -28' mit goldgeprägtem Wappen (ein stilisierter Geigenhals trennt die Buchstaben E und H); leicht berieben; Ränder und Ecken etwas bestoßen. Die ersten und letzten Blatt etwas stockfleckig; durchgehend minimal fingerfleckig. Bei Katalog '1926 - 27' ist eine Tafel (Jacobus Stainer, Absam 1659) doppelt eingebunden.

        Daughter of the Hawk, The

      Bobbs-Merrill, Indianapolis 1928 - First Edition (so stated), fewer than 1000 copies issued. 8vo: 304pp. Publisher's moss-green cloth, spine and upper cover lettered in orange (apparently a variant binding; Wilden cites tan cloth printed in black); price-clipped pictorial dust jacket. A Fine, tightly bound, unmarked copy; in a bright Near Fine jacket, lightly edge-worn, with shallow losses to spine head (but not touching lettering), stain on rear panel. Wilden 10b. A somewhat obscure Forester title, published in England as The Shadow of the Hawk, in which a swashbuckler named Henry Dawkins escapes from a brutal South American prison. Dawkins is a lieutenant of "The Hawk," a rebel leader who dies in battle after extracting a promise that Dawkins will seek out his daughter in far-off London. But this is the story of the Daughter of the Hawk, a girl of singular determination herself. The novel concludes with a rather creepy coda. Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Messe in einer Salzburger Kirche.

      . Radierung, 1928, auf festem Bütten, signiert, datiert und bezeichnet. 17:23,2 cm. Im Rand etwas ungleich und etwas angeschmutzt.. Die Malerin und Graphikerin entstammte einer großbürgerlichen Familie und konnte sich von dieser unterstützt der künstlerischen Laufbahn widmen. Um 1900 begann sie mit dem Studium in München bei K. Becker-Gundahl (1856-1925), dann erlernte sie als Schülerin von M. Feldbauer (1869-1948) im Sommer in Dachau an der Malschule die Landschaftsmalerei und im Winter in München an der Damenakademie des Münchner Künstlerinnenvereins die Aktmalerei. Gemeinsam mit Feldbauer unternahm sie eine Studienreise nach Griesbach/Niederbayern und in die Bretagne. Weitere Studienaufenthalte folgten nach Rom und Florenz und um 1911 ein mehrmonatiger Aufenthalt in Paris an der Ecole Ranson. Vor 1914 lebte sie in Berlin, wo sie die Unterstützung v.a. durch den Kunstkritiker P. Westheim fand. Ab 1915 wohnte sie in Dachau, wo sie in den Sommermonaten die Malschule von A. Hölzel (1853-1934) besuchte; sie zählte neben Ida Kerkovius (1879-1970), Maria Langer-Schöller (1878-1969) und Else von Freytag-Lovinghoven (1874-1927) u.a. zu den sog. "Malweibern". Sie war Mitglied der "Künstlergruppe Dachau", der "Kunstvereinigung Dachau" und der Münchner "Neuen Sezession". Erfolgreich beteiligte sie sich an Ausstellungen in München, Rom, Wien, Berlin, Paris, Stuttgart und Salzburg. 1919 erhielt sie die Silb. Staatsmedaille der Stadt Salzburg. Freundschaft unterhielt sie mit A. Kubin (1877-1959) und Else Lasker-Schüler (1869-1945). 1933 wurde sie als "entartet" diffamiert, infolge wandte sie sich einem naiven Malstil und unverfänglichen Bildthemen zu.
