        Canarsie: Vol. 17 of 29 Atlases of Insurance Maps for Brooklyn

      Sanborn Map Company New York: Sanborn Map Company, 1928. hardcover. very good. Atlas. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Massive elephant folio. Decorative calligraphic titles, indices, and key maps. Contains a set of 101 detailed maps of eastern Brooklyn and Jamaica Bay along with changes recorded on paste-on correction slips through 1974. Quarter leather binding with gilt title on front and spine. Large tear to spine of original protective canvas cover. This volume includes Paerdegat and Fresh Creek Basins before artificial widening, Shore Parkway and the Long Island Railroad, and multiple pools, islets and marshes in Jamaica Bay. The Sanborn map collection consists of a uniform series of large scale maps, dating from 1867 to the present depicting the commercial, industrial, and residential sections of some twelve thousand cities and towns in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The maps were designed to assist fire insurance agents in determining the degree of hazard associated with a particular property and therefore show the size, shape and construction of dwellings, commercial buildings, and factories as well as fire walls locations of windows and doors, sprinkler systems, and types of roofs. The maps also indicate widths and names of streets, property boundaries, building use, and house and block numbers. They show locations of water mains, giving their dimensions, and of fire alarm boxes and hydrants. Sanborn maps are an unrivaled source of information about the structure and use of buildings in American Cities. The collection includes some fifty thousand editions of fire insurance maps comprising an estimated seven hundred thousand individual sheets. The Library of Congress holdings represent the largest extant collection of maps produced by the Sanborn Map Company. The majority of the maps were acquired by the Library through copyright deposit, but the collection was substantially enriched in 1967 when the Bureau of the Census transferred to the Library of Congress a complete set. The 1,899 loose-leaf binders were particularly noteworthy because they included later editions than those previously acquired by the Library. The Bureau of the Census set of maps had been regularly updated by printed, paste-on corrections supplied by the Sanborn Map Company, whereas the Library of Congress copies were retained in the form in which they were copyrighted.

        Le Retour du Tchad

      NRF Librairie Gallimard Paris: NRF, Librairie Gallimard. [1928]. First edition, inscribed by Gide on the half-title to fellow author, Julien Green: "a Julien Green en temoignage de tres attentive affection, Andre Gide." This is a splendid association copy. Green, a novelist of American parentage who was born in Paris, was a member of the French Academy -- as was Gide. Green converted to Roman Catholicism in 1916 and was often described as a "Catholic novelist" -- a term he rejected. Still, his novels depict the anguish and despair that result from the conflict between man's spiritual and carnal desires. Gide's novels were banned by the Catholic Church. This title, LE RETOUR DU TCHAD, along with VOYAGE AU CONGO was severely critical of French colonization in Africa. 8vo; hansomely bound by H. Alix in 3/4 crushed chestnut brown morocco and marbled paper boards, spine with gilt lettering, marbled endpapers, t.e.g., original wrappers and backstrip bound in, text browned, else fine.

        Putyi tvoi, Gospodi, skaji mne [Thy Ways, O Lord, Tell Me]. Autograph musical manuscript. 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."

        The Argonaut Manuscript Edition of the Writings of Frank Norris

      Doubleday Doran & Company Inc. Garden City, New York: Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc., 1928. Spines a little browned, a few with some spattering of brown spots, occasional light rubbing of edges, and dust soiling, bookplate a fine set. Octavo. Ten volumes white parchment over orange boards, front covers and spine stamped in gilt, top edge gilt One of 245 sets. (Lacking the original manuscript leaf which the edition was issued with but with copies of two leaves) Volume VIII, McTeague, contains an introduction by Dreiser. Included with the set are two pages, photocopies of the original manuscript pages, from the McTeague manuscript. They show how Norris wrote and worked; he set up his page so one third on the left was blank and then used for corrections and additions. He did, also insert words into the text, as well as strike out. The pages have been enlarged from the originals. The top of the first page begins "a vague distress. As length just as the musicians were returning he stood up and whisperedenrgetically in his mother's ear." This corresponds to the last two paragraphs page 89 through second paragraph page 91. The second page begins "with each other. After this own peculiar fashion 'Setting out with each other' Miss Baker had begun to call it." Many literary critics, including Henry L. Mencken, regard McTeague as the greatest of all American novels. The book itself abound with superlatives: it contains the finest characterization of a dentist in fiction; it is surely the greatest novel to use San Francisco for its setting; it is, in fact, a landmark in fiction, standing with Crane's Maggie and Dreiser's Sister Carrie in the forefront of the development of realism in American literature. Transposed into another medium, the plot became the vehicle for one of the most famous films of the silent screen Greed, directed by Eric von Stroheim. Norris's holograph material is genuinely rare. Indeed, except for unsigned pages from McTeague [the manuscript was taken apart and a leaf inserted in every set of the manuscript edition of the Works], Norris' autograph is practically unobtainable..
