Complete 8 volumes set 1928. This set is priced to reflect the condition issues. Overall it's a nice collection with no missing pages, writing, etc. The last book volume 8 has damage to the cloth of the spine with most of it missing and is splitting along the gutter. All the other books are very good. Volume 1 has a small piece of cloth missing from the back bottom corner as shown in the picture. This is a highly sought after set of Napoleon Hill books.

Viteslav Nezval, Jindrich Styrsky
Prague: Edice 69, 1928. Octavo 20x13 cm., original wrappers, 62pp. Ten full-page xylographic collages by Jindrich Štyrský. Edition of 138 numbered copies, this being no. 94 printed on simulated Japan paper. Privately printed and only distributed by Styrsky to his friends and collectors, the Edice 69 was edited by Štyrský and Toyen with Nezval. None of the titles were not released for public consumption. All their publications explored eroticism without inhibition. Subtitled „A Tale of Illusion Unmasked,“ this is a account of an teenage boy’s initiation into sexuality through a machine, with a full range of fantasies and untested ideas. It is an autobiographical recovery of Nezval’s adolescence and sexual awakening in the arena of the provincial morals where he spent his upbringing, recovered in a surrealist mental collage which includes themes of voyeurism and castration. Štyrský’s illustrations, which came about through a mutual collaboration with Nezval, are done deliberately in the style of Max Ernst and are startling, comic and superb; they have become signature pieces in a playful and threatening erotica. This spurred Štyrský to go much further in his subsequent work in collage. Worldcat finds nine North American library holdings. This copy is in a clamshell box, and is in fine condition.

Zella Armstrong & Janie French
King Printing Company, Bristol TN. FIRST EDITION, PRINTED 1928, "FROM THE PRESS OF THE KING PRINTING COMPANY BRISTOL, TENNESSEE". In my humble opinion, this copy is in very good condition as it is 90 years old! It has been saved from the "usual library wear" so common to many antique books as it was previously owned by an individual versus a lending library. DO NOT MISS THIS AWESOME OPPORTUNITY TO OWN A FIRST EDITION PRINTING (COPYRIGHT 1928) of the book entitled "NOTABLE SOUTHERN FAMILIES, THE CROCKETT FAMILY and CONNECTING LINES, VOLUME V". This book is Volume V (five) of the set of books entitled "Notable Southern Families" as written by the co-authors Ms. Janie Preston Collup French and Ms. Zella Armstrong. Volume Five is a genealogical history of The Crockett Family, and yes, the family history of "Mr. Davey Crockett" of Alamo Fame is included! IN ADDITION, THIS COPY IS INSCRIBED ON THE FRONT ENDPAPER WITH NAME AND ADDRESS OF A MEMBER OF THE CROCKETT FAMILY - A MS. SALLY CROCKETT OF PORTSMOUTH, NEW HAMPSHIRE! There are NO DOG-EARED PAGES; AND ABSOLUTELY NO INK UNDERLINING OR HIGH-LIGHTING HAS BEEN DONE TO THESE PRECIOUS PAGES! There is a bit of "shading" on the inside and back covers where for years the previous owner apparently had stored a letter or other papers. As this is present on the inside of both covers, this could be common in older books - I am not certain. The book contains 611 (six hundred and eleven) deckle-edged pages of glorious genealogical information regarding "the Crockett Family & Connecting Lines".

Gur'ian, Olga and A[nna] Kazimirovna Borovskaia, illustrator
Gosudarstvennoe izdatel'stvo, Moscow, 1928. Quarto (28.5 × 22 cm). Original staple-stitched pictorial wrappers; 16 pp. With seventeen large chromolithograph illustrations throughout. Small oval stamp of Marcel Bekus ("Ex-libris Marcel Bekus"). Light rust to staples, else very good or better. Second edition (first published in 1927). Striking illustrations and simple verse convey the experience of small children during a citywide celebration of an unnamed holiday in Moscow, most likely the yearly May First Parade. State-organized mass celebrations were progressively more common throughout the 1920s and 1930s as the Soviet state created new rituals to replace the old religious and state holidays. A parade with banners, posters, and music is emphasized here over the specific holiday. The illustrator, Anna Kazimirovna Borovskaia (1901-1984) was a poster artist and illustrator of children's books, games and postcards. She studied at VKhUTEMAS (1924-1929) and her illustrations and posters are stylistically close to the works of OST artists (Obshchestvo stankistov, or Society of Easel Painters). Borovskaia used a subdued palette, stylized and simplified drawing, resorted to generalizing the form combining modernist and realist tendencies. The illustrations for this book combine darker hues with bright layers of red and blue. Olga Gur'ian (1899-1974) was a prolific children's author who published over fifty books in her long writing career. Not in the Lur'e collection (Kniga dlia detei 1881-1939, Moscow: ULEI, 2009).

Radclyffe Hall
London: Jonathan Cape, 1928. 8vo. 1st edition. 512 pp. With a commentary by Havelock Ellis. In the publisher's black cloth gilt-stamped to spine. Top edge black. First edition, first issue, with the misprint 'whip' on page 50. Volume has been re-backed with original spine piece laid down. All original blanks present. Hall described The Well of Loneliness as "The first long and very serious novel entirely upon the subject of sexual inversion." She wrote it in part to popularise the ideas of sexologists such as Richard von Krafft-Ebing and Havelock Ellis, who regarded homosexuality as an inborn and unalterable trait: congenital sexual inversion. The novel became the target of a campaign by James Douglas, editor of the Sunday Express, who (in)famously wrote, "I would rather give a healthy boy or a healthy girl a phial of prussic acid than this novel." To this day Express Newspapers continue to champion similar bold and forward thinking views targetting minorities and the lumpen powerless with their egregious populist invective.

Mendelsohn, Erich
Berlin: Rudolf Mosse, 1928. 1st to 3rd Edition. Hardcover. g to vg. 1. bis 3. Auflage. Folio. ix, 82, [1]pp. Original cloth-backed over yellow, printed paper-covered boards with black lettering on cover, yellow lettering on spine.Critical study of American architecture by German-Jewish architect Erich Mendelsohn. The 77 b/w reproductions in photogravure were taken by the architect on his visit to the United States in 1924. Mendelsohn's goal was to convey a new vision of the contemporary city. In his foreword he points to the pros and cons of European Americanism, which he sees as a major opposition between civilization and culture. Photographs show the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan's skyline, the Equitable Trust Building, Trinity Church, Times Square, 5th Avenue, Madison Avenue, Wall Street, Broadway, Shelton Hotel, New York Harbor, Chicago's Federal Reserve Bank, Michigan Avenue, building of the Chicago Tribune, various Chicago street scenery, as well as architecture in Detroit and Buffalo.15 photographs by the Danish architect Knud Lönberg-Holm, particularly those showing Detroit, are not credited to him, only in the later, expanded edition of 1928 was Lönberg-Holm given credit. Noteworthy that Mendelsohn's so-called 'photographic modernity' was often substantiated by pointing to those photographs in this book taken by Lönberg-Holm. El Lissitzky was so impressed with "Amerika" that he said the volume "thrills us like a dramatic film. Before our eyes move pictures that are absolutely unique. In order to understand some of the photographs you must lift the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Leningrad: Izdatel'stvo Akademii nauk SSSR, 1928. XI, 73 pp. 20x14 cm. In original printed wrappers. Some rubbings of the wrappers, spine of the wrapper is slightly detached from the text block. Otherwise a very good copy. Very rare. One of 2000 copies. Title in Russian and German on the front wrapper, two title pages, table of contents, introduction and all captions in Russian and German. This is a small nice catalogue of almost all Oriental (eastern) fonts which press of Academy of Sciences of USSR has. Only very outdated fonts were not included as well as those of incomplete sets. Russian science has a long history of Oriental studies, and this fund was growing organically alongside other researches. Almost all pre-Revolutionary publications with usage of eastern fonts were printed by Academy's press. There are Sanskrit, Tibetan, Chinese, Japanese, Mongolian, Manchurian, Kalmyk, Buryat, ancient Turkish, Uigur, Persian cuneiform, Avestan, Middle Persian, Jewish, Palmyra, Syrian, Estrangelo, Ethiopian, Samaritan, Arab, Persian, Armenian, Georgian, Egyptian hieroglyphs, Coptic and phonetic symbols for the transcription. With the growth of country’s republics and their culture the number of such books was growing as well so this edition is an evidence of last days when Academy's press was a unique leader in the field of Oriental fonts in the world. The catalogue was timed with the 200th anniversary of Academy's press and the World Press Exhibition ("Pressa") in 1928 in Cologne (that year Soviet display was designed by El Lissitzky which became his highest achievements in t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Charles Blair Macdonald
Condition: Good. Scotland's Gift: Golf by Charles Blair Macdonald First edition book published in 1928 Small scuff mark on the binding otherwise in good condition. As one reviewer wrote about this book: "Although I don't know that I could define "serious golfer" off hand, you might fit in that category if: You have ever played at the National Golf Links of America Want to know how the USGA came to be Wonder what golf was like in the late 19th century in the US Dream of building your own course, but have no clue what "good design" is Personally, I fit into the last slot. Most of us play rounds or look at yardage books and try to figure out why one course is on the top 100 of every magazine, and another never seems to see the light of day in print. For people like this, we need books on golf architecture. This book contains, arguably, one of the most concise takes on the subject. It would be misleading to say that architecture is the only matter covered. Actually, it only accounts for about a quarter of the volume in total. The rest is the personal narrative of Macdonald as the pioneer of golf in America, and as one of the founders of the USGA. It also discusses early tournaments in the US, which may be of interest to history buffs. Much of this is probably required knowledge to have any sort of intelligent discussion on golf history, and is worth a quick read at the least. Given that Macdonald was involved with the USGA for the decades after its inception, he also was there to witness the begining of problems that still plague the game today. Namely, the question of equipmen … [Click Below for Full Description]
