An den Sänger Ludwig Cramolini (1805-1884) in Wien: "Einen mir neuerdings gemachten Anerbieten zufolge, unter günstigen Bedingungen das hiesige Stadttheater wieder zu übernehmen, das dem 1. August d. J. sonach wieder eröffnet werden dürfte, und infolge der vortheilhaften Meinung, die mir über Ihr angenehmes Talent zugekommen, mache ich [...] folgende Anfrage. Ob Sie nähmlich im Fache der Tenor und Spielparthien des Joseph, Maurer, G. Braun in weiße Dame [von Boieldieu] usw. vom 1. August d. J. bis Pfingsten 1830 [...] ein Engagement beim hiesigen Stadttheater [...] annehmen wollen? Nach allem, was ich von Ihnen und Ihrem Talent gehört, sollte es mich freuen, Sie den unsrigen zu nennen [...]". - Küstner leitete von 1817 bis 1828 das Stadttheater in Leipzig, war 1830/31 Chef des Darmstädter Hoftheaters, seit 1833 Intendant des Münchner Hoftheaters und von 1841 bis 1852 Generalintendant des Hoftheaters in Berlin. - Etwas angestaubt und fleckig; Bl. 2 mit kleinem Ausriß durch Siegelbruch.

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.

All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

      Gosizdat, Moskau. 1928.. 91 S., 1 Bl. Mit 1 Falttafel. 8°, Orig.-Karton nach Entfurf El. Lissitzkys.. Original-Ausgabe. - Selvinsky war einer der bedeutendsten Vertreter des literarischen Konstruktivismus. Die vorliegende Erzählung ist eine Art Autobiographie des Dichters, der seine Verse hier als Werk des imaginären Lyrikers Evgeny Ney publizierte. - Berühmtheit erlangte die kleine Veröffentlichung vor allem durch die prägnante Einbandgestaltung El Lissitzkys. So nutzte er zwei fotografische Porträtaufnahmen, die er 1924 von Hans Arp fertigte, und belichtete die Negative unterschiedlich, so dass die Profilaufnahme heller und die Frontalaufnahme dunkler geriet, schließlich fügte er beide zu einem Doppelporträt zusammen. Als Hintergrund verwandte er die Dada-Zeitschrift 391, auf den Hemdkragen ließ er den Namen des imaginären Dichters setzen. - Erschienen in einer Aulage von dreitausend Exemplaren. - Die häufig fehelnde Faltkarte hier mit Einriss, sonst hervorragend erhaltenes Exemplar. - Lissitzky-Küppers 121. - Kat.

        THE POOH BOOKS, Including: When We Were Very Young; Winnie-the-Pooh; Now We Are Six; and The House at Pooh Corner

      London: Methuen & Co., Ltd, 1928. London: Methuen & Co., Ltd, 1928. First edition. A complete set of the first, UK trade editions for all four "Pooh" books. "When We Were Very Young" is an about Fine copy of the book with spine gently cocked and slight offsetting to the end papers from the jacket. In a Very Good (or a little less) dust jacket that is toned on the spine, lightly soiled and with a few moderate chips and tears, the ones at the top of the spine professionally closed. "Winnie The Pooh" is a Fine copy of the book with the gilt top-edge just a bit dusty, otherwise lovely, in a Very Good + example of the dust jacket, toned on the spine and with a spot of soiling at the foot of the spine, but generally in excellent condition. "Now We Are Six" is a Near Fine copy of the book with the spine a bit faded and worn at the extremities, in a just about Fine example of the dust jacket with only trivial wear. "The House at Pooh Corner" also just about Fine with the spine lightly faded, and minor dustiness to the top-edge, in an attractive, Near Fine dust jacket with a small hole on the front panel, near the spine, and the spine a bit toned, otherwise excellent. Also included is a rare Methuen advertisement for "The House at Pooh Corner" that states: "Ready in the Autumn, 1928." Advertisement is a single sheet, folded once, printed front and back. Also advertised are: "WWWVY" 169th Thousand, "WTP" 91st Thousand, and "NWAS"109th Thousand. Leaf in Near Fine condition, the only such example that we have encountered.& & A.A. Milne would write the Pooh stories after being inspired by his son, Christopher Robin, and his stuffed animals, one of which was a bear named "Winnie." Milne had written prolifically in other modes and genres, but the Pooh books would go on to outshine all his other works. Indeed, "Winnie The Pooh" has been listed on the New York Public Library';s 100 greatest children';s books of the century and the Ashdown Forest, where the stories take place, has become a tourist attraction as a result. "I think Pooh's secret is the kindness and generosity of spirit of the characters toward each other." (Jeanne Lamb, NY Public Library).
