        La Divina Commedia or the Divine Vision of Dante Alighieri in Italian & English

      London: Nonesuch Press, 1928. Folio, with 42 plates (many double-page), spine moderately sunned, binding a little thumbed; very good overall in original gilt decorated orange Japon vellum boards. A magnificent edition of the Divine Comedy illustrated with 42 beautifully printed plates from the original sketches by Sandro Botticelli. This is undoubtedly one of the finest books produced by the Nonesuch Press in their long and fruitful history. Botticelli's drawings are delicate and understated, and this is the first occasion they have been married with Dante's text in the form of a printed book. The plates are remarkably for their subtlety and faith to the original artworks, and are were specially produced by French artisan printmaker Daniel Jacomet, who is now renowned for his pochoir stencil work for Picasso and other eminent artists of the era. The Divine Comedy is printed in the original vernacular Italian alongside the cherished English language translation of Henry Francis Cary. In sympathy with Botticelli's fifteenth-century illustration, the type has been set in blado italic reminiscent of incunabula of the era. Edition limited to 1475 numbered copies.

      . Schwarze Kreide und Pinsel in Grau, auf Bütten, verso numeriert "N: 501". 11,2:22 cm. - Durchgehend etwas braunfleckig, sonst tadellos. Provenienz: Sammlung Prinz W. Argoutinsky-Dolgoroukoff, Paris, Lugt Suppl. 2602 d; versteigert in Berlin 8.11.1928, Nr. 523; Sammlung Adolf Gruis, Berlin, nicht bei Lugt. Literatur: Beck Z 705.. Die produktivste Zeit van Goyens als Landschaftszeichner fällt in die Jahre 1651-1653. Die hier vorgestellte Zeichnung ist als autonomes Kunstwerk entstanden, auch wenn sie nicht signiert ist. Die Kreidelinien werden durch den unterschiedlich stark ausgeübten Druck modelliert und die Zeichnung mit Tuschpinsel laviert. Hierdurch erreicht der Künstler eine mehr malerische als graphische Wirkung. Das Format des Blattes entspricht mehr oder weniger der Standardgröße der bildmäßig ausgeführten Zeichnungen van Goyens. Jan van Goyen ist einer der bedeutendsten holländischen Landschaftsmaler des 17. Jahrhunderts. Nach Studien bei fünf verschiedenen Meistern (um 1606-um 1610) bildete er sich autodidaktisch weiter. Um 1615 ging er für etwa ein Jahr nach Frankreich und arbeitete danach einige Zeit selbständig in Leiden. Auf seine drängenden Bitten hin ermöglichte ihm sein Vater ein weiteres Studienjahr in Haarlem bei Esaias van de Velde (um 1591-1630). Diese Zeit hinterließ den nachhaltigsten Eindruck und machte sich in van Goyens Werk deutlich bemerkbar. Danach kehrte er zunächst nach Leiden zurück, zog jedoch 1632 nach Den Haag, wo er verstarb. Mit den Jahren wurde van Goyen zu einem bedeutenden Naturschilderer, der die Farbstimmung jeder Tages- und Jahreszeit hervorragend einzufangen wußte. Ganz im Gegensatz zu den Gemälden, die meist nicht vor der Natur entstanden, hat der Künstler um so "fleißiger vor der Natur gezeichnet. Tausende, z.T. aus aufgelösten Skizzenbüchern stammende, meist mit schwarzer Kreide gezeichnete Studien, legen davon Zeugnis ab. Wie die Gemälde, kennzeichnet sie ein flotter, loser Strich." (zitiert aus: Thieme/Becker, Bd. XIV, S. 462).

        Little Poems In Prose.

      Edward W. Titus / Black Manikin Press, Paris 1928 - Hardcover. 8vo. xii + 150pp. + 4pp. adverts. Felt spine & title label to upper board. Heavy brown cloth boards. T.e.g. Fore- & bottom edges uncut. 'Misprints' leaf tipped on facing p. (148). Edition limited to 800 numbered copies, this copy out-of-series (unnumbered). Crowley's translation of these wonderfully pithy pieces by Baudelaire. Crowley apparently had the sheets for the book printed by the Chiswick Press in 1913 with the intention of issuing it under the Wieland imprint, however for reasons unknown that edition was never published, and only one or two proof issues survive. The unbound sheets remained in storage until the 1920s, when Crowley had them transferred to Edward Titus of Paris. Titus added new preliminaries and advertisements, along with ten erotic black and white copperplate engravings by renowned decadent artist Jean de Bosschère, and published the work in the current format. Several different issues and binding variants exist, although no order of precedence has been established. This issue has a slip tipped onto the half-title announcing that "The quota of this edition apportioned to the United States of America sold by Random House, New York," presumably indicating that this was one of the copies intended for sale in the USA. Corners lightly bumped, spine lightly chafed as common, title label a little darkened, edges lightly rubbed, front endpapers a little browned, all else VG. (No dustwrapper - none issued) [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      1928. The Rackham-Illustrated Edition"A Difficult Title To Find in Good Condition"[RACKHAM, Arthur]. 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 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." (Front flap of dust jacket).Latimore and Haskell p. 63. Hudson p. 171. Riall p. 163.

        LAUGH CLOWN LAUGH (1928)

      Sweden 1928 - Vintage original 27 ¼ x 38 ¾" (70 x 98 cm.) poster, Sweden. Lon Chaney, Loretta Young, Nils Asther, Gwen Lee, dir: Herbert Brenon, MGM. Lon Chaney ran the gamut in the story which spanned a 25 year period in the life of the circus clown known as Pagliacci, the clown who could not laugh. Perhaps his finest film performance, he also guided 14-year-old Loretta Young in her first featured role. One of the finest silent films, based on story by David Belasco. This poster by the artists of Sweden is spectacular with its circus theme, colors and deco presentation. On linen, NEAR FINE.

        RED HAIR (1928)

      USA 1928 - Vintage original 14 x 22" (35 x 56 cm.) window card, USA. Clara Bow, Lane Chandler, William Austin, Jacqueline Gadsden, Lawrence Grant, dir: Clarence G. Badger; Paramount. A brilliant, sassy and flirtatious portrait, and so iconic of the red-headed star "It" girl. So popular had Clara Bow become as a result of her star vehicle "It" that celebrated writer Elinor Glyn's work was once again used as the basis for this screenplay: five writers adapted her book "The Vicissitudes of Evangeline". The story concerned a free-spirited girl (a manicurist) who is courted by three middle-aged men, each seeing her in a different light. They also happen to be the guardian of a young man to whom she is attracted to. Initially, Gary Cooper was cast in the role played by Lane Chandler (who would make his mark in 1950s and 60s television Westerns). As with many of Clara Bow's films, though a concentrated effort has been made to locate this and others, it is considered lost except for a recently-found short clip. Paper-backed, there has been some skillful touch-up mostly to white background, to address what were once some stains and a few tears, poster now looks really nice, VERY GOOD-FINE.

        Autograph musical manuscript of Putyi tvoi, Gospodi, skaji mne [Thy Ways, O Lord, Tell Me], a vocal work for tenor solo, mixed chorus and piano. In score

      10 pp. In E, 2/2 time, marked "Lento" at head. Folio (358 x 265 mm.). Unbound. Notated in ink on 18-stave Russian music manuscript paper. With numerous autograph corrections and amendations including pencil markings of an editorial nature. The printer's copy, presumably used in preparation of the published edition. With pencilled annotation to upper left corner of title indicating receipt of the manuscript (presumably by the publisher) on October 13, 1928. Slightly worn and soiled. . We have not located any record of the present work in Slonimsky. "In two fields of Russian music Grechaninov has a special place: children’s music and liturgical works. Even his first liturgy op.13 is worth attention; and in the op.19 choruses he used a new style, favoured by Katal sky and others, recognizable by its modal harmonization of old Russian melodies. This initially aroused strong opposition from conservative church musicians. In the popular second liturgy Grechaninov solved the problem of the Credo by giving the text to a solo alto, who declaims it rhythmically while the choir sings the word ‘Veruyu’ (‘I believe’) in simple harmony. Grechaninov’s later use of instruments in para-liturgical works, his composition of a Roman Catholic Mass and motets (with organ), and his writing of a Missa oecumenica – a Latin mass for solo voices, chorus, organ and orchestra on Orthodox, Gregorian and Hebrew liturgical melodies – all testify to his liberal religious outlook."

        A collection of notebooks, offprints, and books from the library of Max Newman

      , 1928–59. 1928–59. Together, 29 items: 3 printed books, one manuscript notebook, one autograph album, and 24 offprints. Very light toning and spotting, extremities slightly bumped and occasionally a little worn, a few light stains, some minor nicks and chips to margins. Minor rust stains to wrappers and gutters of offprints. Generally a good state of preservation. Max Newman (1897–1984) was one of the most significant British mathematicians of his generation and a leading pioneer in modern computer science. After early pioneering work on combinatory (or geometric) topology, logic and Boolean algebras, he was elected FRS in 1939. During the Second World War, in 1942, he joined the government code and cypher school at Bletchley Park. There he realised that some of the methods used by the Bletchley codebreakers would be better done with the help of rapid, special-purpose electronic machinery employing paper tape and photoelectric cells; he and Alan Turing proposed the logical requirements for such machinery. These requirements formed the basis of practical machines, culminating with the Colossus, the world's first large-scale electronic computer. The section at Bletchley that used the machinery was headed by Newman and was called the Newmanry. From 1945 to 1964 Newman was the Fielden professor of mathematics at Manchester University, where he established the Royal Society Computing Machine Laboratory, which produced the first working stored program electronic computer in 1948. This collection of papers from his family includes an autograph album owned by his son William, who evidently took the opportunity of various conferences and academic gatherings to garner the signatures of some of the most important scientists of the mid-century, including that of Alan Turing. Newman remained close to Turing throughout his career. It was he who wrote the Royal Society's Memoir, and his wife, Lyn Irvine, who supplied the preface to Sara Turing's biography of her tragic son. The collection also includes one of Newman's own early notebooks, showing his intellectual concerns in the 1920s, and a number of offprints, including three of his own articles and a presentation copy. The collection comprises: NOTEBOOKS a. Autograph album. Oblong duodecimo, 67 pages (white, pink, and blue), original black leather-grain boards, 'Autographs' to front board gilt, edges purple. "Begun 14 July 1951" in William Newman's childish hand on the front pastedown. About 100 autographs by various famous mathematicians and scientists, including Alan Turing, Hassler Whitney, Patrick Blackett, Stan Frankel, Conel Hugh O'Donel Alexander, John Cockcroft. Also Carl L. Siegel and Jan A. Rajchman. Spine gently cocked, spine ends and edges of boards slightly rubbed, very minor wear to top edge of front board. b. Max Newman's Math Diary. Duodecimo, green cloth wrappers, "Math Diary" handwritten on front wrapper. 176 pages, mostly completed in ink and pencil. August 1924–December 1932 as far as dated entries are concerned. Edges speckled green. Extremities slightly rubbed, a couple of small white marks (scuff marks?) to front wrapper. Fowler's problem, (ca p. 94); Reading, summer 28 (p. 83), and notes on theorems, equations, etc. PRINTED BOOKS A. HARTREE, D. R. Calculating Machines: Recent & Prospective Developments and their impact on Mathematical Physics. Inaugural Lecture by the author. (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1947.) Small quarto. Original printed wrappers, 2 plates. With Newman's ownership inscription to half-title. Wrappers toned and partially loose along spine, spine ends a little chipped, small dark stain to lower corner of front wrapper. An excellent copy. B. SHANNON, Claude E., & Warren Weaver. The Mathematical Theory and of Communication. (Urbana: University of Illinois Press, 1949). Original dark red cloth, titles to spine in silver. Spine a little faded, spine ends and corners lightly rubbed and bumped, top edge of rear board with small light marks. An excellent copy. C. TURING, Sara. Alan M. Turing. (Cambridge: W. Heffer & Sons, 1959). Original pale green boards, titles to spine and front board in green. Spine gently cocked, small light dampstain to front board, spine and bottom of front board lightly toned, top and bottom edges of rear board very lightly bumped. An excellent copy. First edition of this uncommon biography, or memorial volume, of the great computer science pioneer, written by his mother; apparently issued in an edition of as little as 500 copies. Mrs Turing maintains that her son's death was an accident, the result of careless handling of chemicals when preparing "non-poisonous weed-killer, and sink-cleaner" at home. Despite this probably emotionally necessary special pleading, this is an interesting work which strives to establish Turing's credentials without reference to his then still-classified war work. Newman is referenced several times in the text; the preface is by his wife, Lyn Irvine. OFFPRINTS i. BAER, Reinhold, & Friedrich Levi. "Freie Produkte und ihre Untergruppen." From Compositio Mathematica Volume 3 (1936). Offprint, wire-stitched, printed light blue wrappers. Extremities of wrappers lightly toned, minor chip to lower corner of rear wrapper. ii. BOHR, Niels.
