        The Waste Land

      Horace Liveright, 1928-01-01. Third Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. New York: Horace Liveright, 1928: First Edition, Third Printing, published in August of 1928 (the first two printings were printed in 1922). This book partially comes with its scarce, original jacket--the jacket is in two pieces and missing the spine panel that could join the two together. The book itself is in Very Good condition, and the jacket is Fair Minus, for obvious reasons. The pages are clean, and slightly age toned. There is a partial, closed tear to the page facing the half title page, as shown in an image posted above. The block cloth shoes edge wear, with fraying to the corners and spine ends. A beautiful copy, well preserved. A nice, early copy, rare, with partial peices of the original jacket present.

        Autograph Letter Signed [to Arthur St. John Adcock]

      Ayot Street, Lawrence, Hertfordshire, England: George Bernard Shaw, 1928. First edition. [No Binding.]. Near Fine. An Autograph Letter Signed from George Bernard Shaw to Arthur St. John Adcock, written on Shaw's headed card measuring approximately 4 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches, addressed and written in Shaw's hand, such letter being dated November 26, 1928 and reading as follows: "I think on the whole I won't sign the / Pugh letter, not that I question his eligibility, // but because I do not believe that my signature / would increase the chances of a successful / result under existing circumstances. // G. B. S." George Bernard Shaw won the 1925 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his work which is marked by both idealism and humanity, its stimulating satire often being infused with a singular poetic beauty". He also won an Oscar, making him the only person ever to have won both Awards. [Not wanting public honors, Shaw determined to decline the Nobel Prize, but changed his mind and accepted it at the urging of his wife who considered it a tribute to Ireland. Shaw did, however, reject the accompanying monetary prize and requested that it be used to translate playwright August Strindberg's works from Swedish to English.] Arthur St. John Adcock, the English novelist and Poet, is know for his having discovered the Welsh Poet and writer William H. Davies who went from being a hobo/tramp to noted Poet. Davies, having self-published his first book of Poetry, "The Soul's Destroyer" (1905), marketed it by sending copies to person's listed in "Who's Who" and asking them to send payment in return. It was thus that a copy came to Arthur St. John Adcock, then an editor at the Daily Mail, who then met with Davies whose literary career then began. Arthur St. John Adcock later became the editor of The Bookman. We strongly suspect the "Pugh" who is the subject of Shaw's letter to be the writer's and recipient's fellow author, Edwin Pugh. The note is in Near Fine condition. An excellent GEORGE BERNARD SHAW AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED, ON SHAW'S HEADED CARD, AND HAVING AN EXCELLENT LITERARY ASSOCIATION.

First edition, first printing, first issue. (Precedes all other editions such as the Paris edition of Pegasus. Stated "FIRST PUBLISHED MCMXXVIII" on copyright page, uncorrected first issue error on page 50: Whip instead of Whips.) Very Good hardcover. Lacks plain original jacket. Clean pages and sturdy binding. Tiny hole in cloth on front cover. A bit of rubbing and scratching to covers, slightly bumped corners. Wear to back paste down. In protective clear sleeve. A nice copy, in collectible condition.First issued July 27, 1928 by British publisher Jonathan Cape, The Well of Loneliness has become a classic of GLBT fiction. Its frank portrayal of lesbian relationships shocked the contemporary public, though. One opponent of the book declared, "I would rather give a healthy boy or a healthy girl a phial of prussic acid than this novel. Poison kills the body, but moral poison kills the soul." By the end of the year the book had been judged "obscene" and all copies for sale were ordered to be destroyed by British authorities. This is one of the copies that survived-- the very first issue before a minor textual error was corrected.

        SAN DIEGO (CARTE/MAP)

      San Diego, CA: The Marston Company, 1928. The San Diego carte was originally mailed folded and thus, when found unframed, presents fold lines in the image. This carte retains the fold lines with two short closed tears at fold corners. There are minor closed tears, corner folds and creases in the white border around the image, not affecting the image. The colors are crisp and bright. Color pictographic map. Image size 27 x 21 3/4". Jo Mora was commissioned by George Marston to make a map and history of the City of San Diego for the Marston Department Stores' 50th Golden Anniversary. "It was meant to be a collectable keep-sake and only 2,000 copies were printed and then the plates were destroyed" (Jon Gilmore) thus this is considered to be one of the scarcest Jo Mora cartes.

        An Encyclopedic Outline of Masonic, Hermetic, Qabbalistic, and Rosicrucian Symbolical Philosophy: Being an Interpretation of the Secret Teachings Concealed within the Rituals, Allegories and Mysteries of All Ages

      San Francisco: Printed for Manly P. Hall by H. S. Crocker, 1928. First Edition. Hardcover Hardcover. Very Good. cclxv [265] pages. Large folio, measuring 13 by 19 inches. Many full-page color illustrations by Knapp, plus many black-and-white in-text illustrations reprinted from earlier books. Handcolored initials begin each chapter; page numbers (at the top of each page) printed in blue. This is the first edition of one of the three or four greatest occult books, reprinted many times over the last 90 years. This is the most elaborate and beautiful of all the many versions. First edition (first printing), 'Theosophical Edition', limited to just 200 numbered copies with a short foreword only used in this version. Each copy of the Theosophical Edition was inscribed by Hall to the original subscriber, in this case, Estelle Irving. The first printing of this massive work was issued in three formats, 550 unsigned copies, 550 numbered and signed copies, and 200 numbered and inscribed copies. Hall refers to these as the first, second and third editions, but they are actually different states of the first printing. This 200-copy Theosophical Edition is the rarest of the three. This is a very good example, with minor wear to the edges of the batik-covered boards and mild spotting to the vellum spine. The leather spine-label is missing one covrn, just affecting the gilt border, but nicer than usually found. The original owner has inscribed the book to two of her relatives on the limitation page. The original wooden slipcase has faded sides and some chipping to the paper-covered boards, but is generally very good. There are undoubtedly better copies out there, but you'll have to wait a long time and pay a lot more to get one.

        Autograph Letter Signed [to Arthur St. John Adcock]

      Ayot Street, Lawrence, Hertfordshire, England: George Bernard Shaw, 1928. First edition. [No Binding.]. Near Fine. An Autograph Letter Signed from George Bernard Shaw to Arthur St. John Adcock, written on Shaw's headed card measuring approximately 4 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches, addressed and written in Shaw's hand, such letter being dated November 26, 1928 and reading as follows: "I think on the whole I won't sign the / Pugh letter, not that I question his eligibility, // but because I do not believe that my signature / would increase the chances of a successful / result under existing circumstances. // G. B. S." George Bernard Shaw won the 1925 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his work which is marked by both idealism and humanity, its stimulating satire often being infused with a singular poetic beauty". He also won an Oscar, making him the only person ever to have won both Awards. [Not wanting public honors, Shaw determined to decline the Nobel Prize, but changed his mind and accepted it at the urging of his wife who considered it a tribute to Ireland. Shaw did, however, reject the accompanying monetary prize and requested that it be used to translate playwright August Strindberg's works from Swedish to English.] Arthur St. John Adcock, the English novelist and Poet, is know for his having discovered the Welsh Poet and writer William H. Davies who went from being a hobo/tramp to noted Poet. Davies, having self-published his first book of Poetry, "The Soul's Destroyer" (1905), marketed it by sending copies to person's listed in "Who's Who" and asking them to send payment in return. It was thus that a copy came to Arthur St. John Adcock, then an editor at the Daily Mail, who then met with Davies whose literary career then began. Arthur St. John Adcock later became the editor of The Bookman. We strongly suspect the "Pugh" who is the subject of Shaw's letter to be the writer's and recipient's fellow author, Edwin Pugh. The note is in Near Fine condition. An excellent GEORGE BERNARD SHAW AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED, ON SHAW'S HEADED CARD, AND HAVING AN EXCELLENT LITERARY ASSOCIATION.

        Mr. Pope and Other Poems

      New York: Minton, Balch, & Company. 1928. First. First edition, first state with (his most famous 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." Page 31 also inserts the word "him" after "distract" in the line reading "Distract from nonentity: his metaphors are dead." 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). .

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.'

        S/W Original Fotographie "Fernsprecher". [Hochformat, ca. 22,9 x 15,2 cm].

      Frankfurt, 1928 - Frankfurt, 1928. Originalabzug, mit eighd. Beschriftung zum Stempel und Datierung auf der Rückseite, sowie dem Adress-Stempel Dexels. Von dritter Hand bzw. anderer Tinte die Beschriftung "Dr. Dexel Jena - Normplakat-Fernsprechsäule mit Transparenten (oben)". - Rückseite etw. angestaubt. - Dexel (1890 - 1973) schuf in den zwanziger Jahren in Jena als einer der ersten Gaslaternen zu Werbezwecken. Formal entwickelte Dexel diese "dreidimensionale(n), beleuchtete(n) Plakate" aus seiner Malerei und Gebrauchsgrafik. 1926 ging Walter Dexel als freiberuflicher Berater für Reklamegestaltung nach Frankfurt am Main. Hauptziel einer von ihm für Frankfurt entworfenen Reklameordnung war die Vereinheitlichung der Fassaden, ein Gleichklang zwischen Reklame und Architektur. In Frankfurt entwarf Dexel 1927/28 außer zahlreichen Transparenten und Reklameuhren auch größere Lichtreklamegestaltungen an Häuserfronten und auf Hausdächern. Hinzu kamen beleuchtete Telefonzellen und Leuchtsäulen für Normaluhren. Dabei gelang es Dexel, seine "bildimmanente Syntax" aus den Bereichen der Sammler- und Museumskunst in die Funktionsbereiche des urbanen Alltags zu übertragen. Dexels Verständnis von (guter) Werbung war dabei ein durchaus eingeschränktes, für ihn fielen "Typografie" und "Reklame" so gut wie zusammen. Insofern war Reklame für ihn "Gebrauchskunst" ohne alles genialische Künstlertum. (Zitat) Deutsch

        [Op. 120]. Autograph musical manuscript of Cloches sonnaient with a signed inscription in Cyrillic to the soprano Nina Pavlovna Koshetz "for the 15th anniversary of her glorious activities" dated Paris 1927 to title; also signed and titled in French

      [i] (autograph title), 4 pp. autograph musical manuscript, [i] (blank) pp. Folio. Notated in ink on 20-stave musical manuscript paper. With autograph text in Russian. Stamps of the Société dated October 25, 1928 to title and within manuscript. Signed twice on title, at head of first page of music, and dated 1926 at conclusion. With corrections and deletions in ink in the composer's hand and additional performance markings in pencil, presumably in the hand of the dedicatee. Slightly worn, soiled and creased; smudging to several notes. . The present manuscript is Grechaninov's arrangement of a popular Russian song, Zvonikli zvony (Les cloches de Novgorod), from his 2 Russian Folk Songs, opus 120 (the second song being Tout le long de la plaine). Gretchaninov: My Life. Catalogue of Works, p. 195 (with a composition date of 1929, contrary to the dating of this manuscript). "After the Revolution, Grechaninov lost his pension, and felt uneasy in Soviet Russia; so he readily took an opportunity to visit western Europe (notably London and Prague), on the invitation of a rich American, in 1922, and after further visits he settled in Paris in 1925, composing much and making a living as a pianist. In 1939 he went to America, which he had often visited since 1929; he settled in New York the following year and took American citizenship in 1946. He was present at a 90th birthday concert held in his honour in New York Town Hall..." "Grechaninov’s works cover many different genres. His style is mainly decadent, influenced more by Tchaikovsky, Borodin, Rimsky-Korsakov and Ippolitov-Ivanov than Musorgsky. Some of his early songs have won popularity for their lyrical expressive power..." Inna Barsova and Gerald Abraham in Grove online Koshetz (1894-1965), a noted Ukrainian-born American soprano, was the daughter of Pavel Koshitz, a leading tenor at the Bol'shoy. She made her début as Tatyana in Yevgeny Onegin with the Zimin Private Opera company in 1913, leaving Russia in 1920 to join the Chicago Opera Association. She spent the best part of the later 1920s in France, performing at the Opéra in 1925 and at the Trocadéro in 1927 in the first Paris production of Rimsky-Korsakov’s Sadko. "Her few recordings, prized by collectors, show a clear, steady voice excitingly combined with an imaginative, emotionally charged style." J.B. Steane in Grove online Gretchaninov speaks of concertizing with Koshetz in his memoirs: "My first concert with Nina Koshetz took place in Carnegie Hall on January 17, 1929. On March 25 of the same year, I conducted, also in Carnegie Hall, my Domestic Liturgy. Both concerts were tremendously successful." Gretchaninov: My Life, pp. 148-149.

Philadelphia: David McKay Company, [1928].Limited to 250 numbered copies for England and 125 copies for the United States. This un-numbered and unsigned copy being one of the 125 for the US. 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.
