        Candide

      Random House, New York 1928 - Spectacular hand-colored edition of Candide (1 of 95), issued to celebrate the inauguration of Bennett Cerf's new company, Random House. The logo for Random House, used to this day, comes from the final illustration in the book, by Rockwell Kent, depicting an idealized country home filled with the ideas of the Enlightenment. The edition consisted of 1,470 black and white copies priced at fifteen dollars each and ninety-five hand-colored copies priced at seventy five dollars (over $1000 today). The book was printed by Elmer Adler's Pynston Printers in the New York Times Annex. The book was hand set in type designed by Adler's partner Lucian Bernhard (1883-1972). Rockwell Kent had 95 copies hand colored at his studio by his assistants Lone Robinson (who later worked with Diego Rivera) and Wanda Gag (who wrote and illustrated the much-loved book Millions of Cats -- Newbery winner and still in print). There are 120 quarto pages (approximately 8 x 11.5 inches) in the book and on each there is a hand-colored illustration. Everything comes together in this book, easily one of the great fine press books of the 20th century. This copy is in near fine condition, bright and fresh and completely clean. 1/4 morocco (touch of wear) over patterned cloth boards of Rockwell Kent's Random House, showing virtually no wear. The original slipcase is present and lined with soft felt (thus the condition of the book) and a silk string for pulling the book out, no bumps or seam wear -- near fine. Slipcase is numbered to match the book. A beautiful copy of a beautiful book. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Gothic and Renaissance Bookbindings exemplified and illustrated from the author's collection. [ 2 vols, complete set, limited "edition de luxe" with 50 additional photographs. ]

      Walter Lewis at the Cambridge University Press, London, first edition - "edition de luxe" 1928 - One of 50 copies comprising the "Edition de Luxe" which contained an additional 50 photographs of bindings not reproduced in the ordinary copies. 2 vols, cloth, 4to, 27 cm, 369 pp + x pp, 110 plates, [50] photographs, Scarce in this "Edition de Luxe". Vol . 1 Text. Vol. 2 Plates, & Photographs. From a contemporary review of the ordinary edition by A.W. Pollard : " Mr. Goldschmidt . Is in the fortunate position of having been able to build up a collection of such evidential value that in cataloguing it he has laid the foundations for a far better history of bookbinding than has yet been written. In his long introduction he shows himself worthy of his good fortune, for he writes as a philosophic historian, not merely telling his readers the facts, but showing how they came to happen, and why they could not have happened before they did. Mr. Goldschmidt's book is so full of new facts and new ideas that it needs prolonged study of it before any one brought up in the old tradition can master it sufficiently to offer detailed criticism. But I feel fairly confident that if ten years hence criticism has seriously modified any of his contentions it will only be as to details. His book marks another milestone in getting the history of bookbinding on to right lines, and he is to be most heartily congratulated on his achievement. The 110 plates with which it is illustrated are a delight." Breslauer refers to "Goldschmidt's book as a "work of immense learning". Copy No. 36. The Edition de Luxe has 50 additional photographs of bindings described in the text, which are appended to the 110 plates of the ordinary edition in Volume 2 (together with a 2-page list of the photographs).

        Litíce: povídky o vojně [The Furies: stories about the war]. Signed and inscribed by the author

      Prague: Aventinum, 1928. Octavo (19.3 × 12.3 cm). Original printed wrappers; 159, [5] pp. Signed and inscribed by Weiner on the half title. Wrappers very lightly sun-toned and creased; still a highly attractive copy, very good or better. Second edition of Weiner's first book of prose, considered to be the first work of Czech literature inspired by modern warfare and the horrors of World War I. Weiner (1884-1937) was a Czech Jew who began his journalistic and literary career after moving to Paris in 1912, but happened to witness the outbreak of the War while in Prague. A recent article notes that Weiner had "intimate knowledge of shell-shock in its most literal form: he saw active service in Bosnia in 1912 and in Serbia in 1914. Indeed, his second tour of duty ended in a nervous breakdown, and in early 1915 he returned to Prague" (Peter Zusi, "States of Shock: Kafka and Richard Weiner," 135). Weiner published both poetry and prose throughout the 1910-20s, in a stylistically complex, psychologically probing, and fundamentally abstract style that has invited comparisons to Franz Kafka since at least the 1930s. While his early work is marked by expressionism, Weiner became influenced by surrealism in the late 1920s, after once again settling in Paris. Evidently some passages of Litice were too risque for the censor, who cut entire paragraphs, and the 1916 first edition was printed with visual omissions; this second edition first presented the complete text. Weiner is still little known outside the Czech Republic, although recent years have seen more attention, following the translation of his "The Game for Real" into English. Scarce, especially signed.

        Importante correspondance de l'artiste et poétesse Elsa Koeberlé.

      - 16 lettres autographes signées 48 In-4 et in-8 [Vers 1928-1940] On joint 3 longues lettres de sa compagne Genia Lioubow, une photographie originale d’un tableau d’Elsa Koeberlé, ainsi que 12 enveloppes autographes avec timbres et marques postales. La plupart des lettres sur papier bleu, parfois à l’adresse d’Elsa Koeberlé. Bon état, pliures. Cette importante correspondance adressée par l'artiste Elsa Koeberlé à Maurice Feuillet et à son épouse témoigne de sa grande amitié avec le couple : « Vous êtes mille fois aimable de m'avoir envoyé ces ravissantes couleurs et je vous en remercie bien vivement. » Koeberlé apporte son soutien à Feuillet dans sa campagne contre l'art moderne : « Nous avons lu avec grand intérêt le vibrant article de M. Feuillet dans Le Gaulois illustré. Quelle merveilleuse idée il a eu de mettre les images côte à côte. C'est la plus indéniable preuve de ce qui fait l'objet de son texte et de sa fureur vengeresse ! Mais tout de même, le petit veau fauve "cubiste" est très fini lui aussi. Je me réjouis, nous nous réjouissons, de la suite. » Pour Elsa Koeberlé, qui vit à Villeneuve-lès-Avignon, Maurice Feuillet représente à l'évidence un lien essentiel avec la vie artistique parisienne, y compris pour les menus détails de son quotidien de peintre : « Si cela ne vous dérangeait pas trop, vous m'obligeriez grandement si vous pouviez me faire expédier de chez Morin & Ganet – puisque vous les connaissez – et contre remboursement bien entendu les couleurs en poudre que voici (vous direz que c'est pour peindre à l'oeuf). » Il est également pour elle un appui indéniable. Elsa Koeberlé est une poétesse et artiste fréquentant les milieux artistiques et littéraires ; elle s'est retiré à l'abbaye Saint-André à Villeneuve-lès-Avignon, qu'elle a restauré avec sa compagne Genia Lioubow.

        Litíce: povídky o vojn [The Furies: stories about the war]. Signed and inscribed by the author

      Aventinum, Prague 1928 - Octavo (19.3 × 12.3 cm). Original printed wrappers; 159, [5] pp. Signed and inscribed by Weiner on the half title. Wrappers very lightly sun-toned and creased; still a highly attractive copy, very good or better. Second edition of Weiner's first book of prose, considered to be the first work of Czech literature inspired by modern warfare and the horrors of World War I. Weiner (1884-1937) was a Czech Jew who began his journalistic and literary career after moving to Paris in 1912, but happened to witness the outbreak of the War while in Prague. A recent article notes that Weiner had "intimate knowledge of shell-shock in its most literal form: he saw active service in Bosnia in 1912 and in Serbia in 1914. Indeed, his second tour of duty ended in a nervous breakdown, and in early 1915 he returned to Prague" (Peter Zusi, "States of Shock: Kafka and Richard Weiner," 135). Weiner published both poetry and prose throughout the 1910-20s, in a stylistically complex, psychologically probing, and fundamentally abstract style that has invited comparisons to Franz Kafka since at least the 1930s. While his early work is marked by expressionism, Weiner became influenced by surrealism in the late 1920s, after once again settling in Paris. Evidently some passages of Litice were too risque for the censor, who cut entire paragraphs, and the 1916 first edition was printed with visual omissions; this second edition first presented the complete text. Weiner is still little known outside the Czech Republic, although recent years have seen more attention, following the translation of his "The Game for Real" into English. Scarce, especially signed. KVK, OCLC show copies at Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin, British Library, Indiana, UCL, Zurich, and Ljubljana. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Six Original Costume Designs.

      1928 Six designs, three signed and dated. Pencil, ink & watercolour on card, mounted into six compartments, each approx. 30 x 20cm. Framed & glazed, 76 x 77cm.Herbert Norris, 1875?-1950, was an occasional actor, costume designer and consultant who worked in the theatre and on films as well as pageants, and as advisor to Madame Tussauds. He was a pupil of the celebrated theatrical designer Wilhelm (pseudonym of William Charles Pitcher) and then developed his own career working for Nathans and producing his best known works, a series of attractively illustrated books on historical costume. These designs, dated 1828, are of the period of the musical Song of the Sea staged at His Majesty's Theatre in October 1928 based on the story of Emma Hamilton. However they do not correspond with photographs of the production. Norris's archive is held at the University of Bristol Theatre Collection.

At the end Pooh makes, as far as his waist will permit, his farewell bow, hoping that if you hear no more of him and Christopher Robin, you will still keep a friendly place in your hearts for them." (Jacket flap) The final book in the Pooh quartet and the first time that we encounter the game of Poohsticks. Poohsticks is a game that was first mentioned in The House at Pooh Corner, a Winnie-the-Pooh book by A. A. Milne. It is a simple game which may be played on any bridge over running water; each player drops a stick on the upstream side of a bridge and the one whose stick first appears on the downstream side is the winner. The annual World Poohsticks Championships have been held at Day's Lock on the River Thames in the UK since 1984.
