Boni & Liveright, New York, 1928. First edition, deluxe limited issue. Tall octavo. Full Japanese vellum with calf spine label gilt, in original slipcase. Boards foxed, as usual, else a near fine copy in worn, but sound, very good numbered slipcase, with evidence of neat, older repairs, the whole housed in a custom cloth chemise and quarter morocco and cloth slipcase. Of a limited edition of 775 copies Signed by O'Neill, this is copy number 20 of 25 copies reserved for the publisher and author, and is Inscribed by Horace Liveright to Ernest Boyd: "To my dear Ernest - this very special copy is most affectionately dedicated by his admiring friend - and with added admiration for a certain girl called Madeleine who is responsible for the gift - and, before it's too late - a happy birthday. Horace Liveright." Both Boyd and O'Neill were Irish-American writers, and co-editors of the short-lived literary journal *The American Spectator*. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, *Strange Interlude* included many innovative stage techniques such as stream-of-consciousness soliloquies and asides. The limited edition elaborately prints these interludes in blue ink, while the rest of the text is in black (the trade edition has all text in black). Basis for the 1932 Robert Z. Leonard-directed film featuring Norma Shearer and Clark Gable, as well as a 1988 television version directed by Herbert Wise and with a splendid cast headed by Kenneth Branagh. A superb association copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]

New York: Film Humor, Inc., 1928 New York: Film Humor, Inc., 1928 (copyrighted late 1927). First Edition. The January, 1928 issue of Film Fun magazine. Interior photography. Quarto, wraps, 64 pp. High grade copy; complete spine, marginal toning, scant wear. Near Fine by softcover standards. See scan. A classic early issue of this famous Hollywood pulp magazine, before Dell took over publishing it with Enoch Bolles / George Quintana covers. This cover is uncredited, but it is a rather spectacular Art Deco / Flapper / Good Girl work which I surely wish they did credit. May well have been an early effort by either of the above. Title of the cover: "It's A Gift !", and features an extraordinarily fetchingly-clad flapper, preening and admiring her recent Chistmas gifts, which are tagged "From Eddie", "From Jack", "From Dave", etc. Contents include a wide variety of promotional photographs of Hollywood stars of the era, as well as of lesser lights. Short articles, humor, quotations from the stars, and of course the funky ads always found in pulps. Certainly a piece of Hollywood history, of girlie pulp history, and, in this case, Deco history.

Back wrapperw. sme tears and small loss, all text intact on both wrappers. Internally nice and clean. V, (1)pp., pp. (367)-496 (=[130] pp.), (2) pp. The important first edition, off-print, of Husserl's "Lectures on the phenomenology of internal time consciousness", which was published by Heidegger, and in which Husserl sets out to investigate the constitution in time of that which has taken place but which is no longer present. He investigates "Phenomenological time" and tries to determine the phenomenological conceptions for describing a moment that has passed.These lectures that make up this publication are some of Husserl's most important lectures. When Husserl was appointed the chair of philosophy at the University of Freiburg after Heinrich Rickert, Heidegger became his assistant, and it was due to his editorial work that these influential lectures were published."Das durchgehende Thema der vorliegenden Untersuchung ist die zeitliche Konstitution eines reinen Empfindungsdatums und die einer solchen Konstitution zugrunde liegende Selbstkonstitution der "phänomenologischen Zeit". Entscheidend wird dabei die Herausstellung des intentionalen Characters des Zeitbewusstseins und die wachsende grundsätzliche Klärung der I n t e n t i o n a l i t ä t überhaupt.

Alekhine, Alexander Alexandrovich (1892-1946) , Hans Kmoch, Géza Maróczy and Aron Nimzowitsch
Schachvereines Herausgegeben von L Toth, Kecskemet, 1928. xvi+158 pages with diagrams, tables and 4 plates. Royal octavo (9 1/4" x 6 1/2") bound in 3/4 leather with marbled boards. Bibliotheca Van der Linde-Niemeijeriana: 5405) 1st edition. This tournament (June-July 1927) was unique in being the only important post-First World War contest played on the discredited group system. The twenty players were divided into two groups of ten each, the first four in each group qualifying for the A final, the next four for the B final and the last two dropping out. As in St Petersburg 1914 thinks did not work out according to the preconceived notions and two grandmasters, Tartakower and Grunfeld, failed to make the top final. Alekhine dominated group A, conceding draws only to Gilg and Kmoch; in B his feat was duplicated not, as expected, by Nimzowitsch, but by Lajos Steiner, who drew with Ahues and Nimzowitsch and won the rest. The scores from the qualifying groups were carried to the finals. In these finals Alekhine won only one game, drawing six and just scraped home from Nomzowitsch and Steiner, who tied for second. The full results were as follows: Group A: Alexander Alekhine (8); Lajos Asztalos and Hans Kmoch (6); Karl Gilg (5 1/2); Johann Takacs and Savielly Tartakower (4 1/2); Wilhelm Brinkmann (3 1/2); Frederick D Yates (3); Hans Müller (2 1/2); Ladislav Sarkozy(2).
