Hecht, Ben and Charles MacArthur
Covici-Friede, 1928. First Edition. INSCRIBED by Hecht to members of his family on the front endpaper: "To Peter, Esther, Patty Hecht / From Ben Hecht / Love." Ben Hecht's rarest and most important play, basis for three key films: in 1931 with Adolphe Menjou and Pat O'Brien, in 1974 with Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau, and most importantly, the classic screwball comedy "His Girl Friday," with Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell in 1940. Hecht is arguably the greatest screenwriter of Hollywood's golden era, Housed in a custom quarter-leather clamshell box. Very Good plus or better in a Near Fine, professionally restored example of the rare dust jacket. Spine slightly toned, faint foxing and a tiny stain at the page fore-edges, and light rubbing and bumping at the extremities. Jacket presents beautifully, with only a few cello-tape repairs at the verso to note. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; In Dust Jacket]

D AUXION DE RUFFÉ, R.
Shanghai: Kelly & Walsh Ltd. First English language edition. Small quarto, pp xiv, 358, (2), v. Twelve photographic plates. Translated from the original French by R.T. Peyton-Griffin. In original half maroon cloth over grey paper boards.

The book is in Fine condition, other than a vertical crease to the ffep. Jacket is in VG condition, worn at edges and chipped at spine ends. Scarce in the dust jacket.

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.

A. A. Milne.
Amalgamated Press., Fleetway House, London. 3 complete magazines for May & June 1928 and August 1929 each approximately 192 pages with adverts front and throughout and rear, all with colour covers AND: THREE rare pieces by A. A. Milne. 2 complete chapters from House at Pooh Corner Chapters 5-6 "In which Rabbit has a Busy Day and We Learn What Christopher Robin Does in the Morning" + "In Which Pooh Invents A New Game And Eeyore Joins In" (Poohsticks). Both illustrated by Ernest Sheperd (as named here no "H") PLUS an article, (again illustrated by E. H. Shepard) entitled "No More Christopher Robin!". In this he describes for his sons future he will resist adding more problems with the publicity etc. He also says going out on a high is better too. The magazines, all 3 have their wrappers and colour covers intact, there is evidence at the spine they were once bound as there is brown paper adhesion here. J.B.Priestly + John Galsworthy + Warwck Deeping + Edith Wharton and others have fiction stories and other interesting articles with colour litho fashion sections of about 8+ pages in each all art drawn and probably lithographed? *The pieces of Pooh and the later article on the refusal to do more are RARE. No other Milne authority mentions these that I have found. the fact the chapter heading differs from the printed book chapter heading would indicate these 2 parts WERE published ahead of the printed book, why else would they give it a slightly different title? I can find no month the book came out in 1928, perhaps towards Christmas that year and these dated May and June that ye … [Click Below for Full Description]

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]

DANIELPOUR, Richard b. 1956
Oblong folio. Wrappers. Spiralbound. 53 pp. Notated in pencil on 18-stave music paper, 304 x 414 mm. With numerous annotations throughout, several in red pencil. Slightly worn. Maya Angelou (1928-2014) was a distinguished American poet, perhaps best-known for her series of autobiographies, the first of which, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings (1969), detailing her life up to the age of 17, brought her international acclaim; she went on to write six more. She had the honor of reciting her poem "On the Pulse of Morning" at the inauguration of President Bill Clinton in 1993, the first poet to make such a recitation since Robert Frost at the inauguration of John F. Kennedy in 1961. Angelou was also an important civil rights activist, working with both Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X. "Yo-Yo Ma and Emmanuel Ax approached me in 1993 about writing a piece that would be of educational as well as aesthetic value to listeners young and old(er). The idea of creating a series of "portraits" of one heroic woman evolved into a different format when we invited Maya Angelou to create the text for the work. We discussed the idea of several portraits of heroic but nonetheless anonymous women throughout history. Out of the five poems Dr. Angelou wrote, I chose to set four - mostly out of consideration for the length of the work, which I wanted to keep in the twenty-minute range. A rough draft of the four movements/songs was made in December 1997 at Yaddo in Saratoga Springs, and was not resumed until July 1998. It was completed in early August of that year at the Marlboro Music Festival, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hecht, Ben and Charles MacArthur (playwrights); Florence Vandamm
N.p. Two vintage oversize photographs from the first stage production of "The Front Page" in 1928, showing two different trio shots of the reporters who grace the majority of the play. The first photo, a double weight 8 x 10 by Florence Vandamm with her blindstamped name on the recto, shows Lee Tracy (later played by Rosalind Russell onscreen), Osgood Perkins, and Frances Fuller. The second, a oversize 11 x 14, uncredited but by White Studios in New York City, shows the star Walter Baldwin (later played by Cary Grant onscreen), Osgood Perkins, and Lee Tracy. Both photographs with numerous notations and stamps on the verso. Excessively rare photographs from the first staging of the play that made Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur famous. The play would be published the same year in book form by Covici-Friede, and was the basis for three films: The Front Page" in 1931 with Adolphe Menjou and Pat O'Brien, "The Front Page" in 1974 with Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau, and most famously, the classic screwball comedy "His Girl Friday," with Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell in 1940.

[Nanjing]: Dōngshěng tiělù jīngjì diàochájú jiānzhì, 1928. 171x186 cm. Full map 1:2,000,000; Xinjiang 1:4,000,000; smaller-scale full map 1:10,000,000; Hainan 1:2,000,000. Relief shown by gradient tints. Some soiling, tears along creases. Very rare. In Chinese. A large colorful map of China printed under control of the Eastern Railway Economic Survey Bureau during the Chinese reunifying. While this map was being composed, the capital moved from Beijing to Nanjing and this information was kindly mentioned on the bottom of map. The railways over East China and sea routes through 11 Chinese ports are indicated. Apart of the Russian lines, the Chinese railways were expanded for the trade by 6 countries, including Japan, France, Great Britain and the United States. Together they covered the eastern and southern parts of the country. The map excludes the territory of North Manchuria, the last piece of reunifying, but shows the fragments with Xinjiang and Hainan. It is particularly interesting because the continuing military separatism was the serious problem facing the new government at that time. It had no authority over the spacious area of Western China and an unstable position on the islands. Xinjiang was under the strong influence of USSR because of the firm Russia-oriented international trade of this region. The local currency exchange rate depended on the Soviet Union and Xinjiang authorities had even raised the issue of its accession to the USSR. Another remarkable thing on this map is Outer Mongolia, separated from China but highlighted by color as its part (other countr … [Click Below for Full Description]

It was first published privately in 1928 in Italy, and in 1929 in France and Australia. An unexpurgated edition was not published openly in the United Kingdom until 1960, when it was the subject of a watershed obscenity trial against the publisher Penguin Books. During the trial, prosecutor Mervyn Griffith-Jones famously asked whether the novel was "a book that you would... wish your wife or your servants to read", although Penguin were found not guilty after only three hours. The verdict helped to bring about a more liberal and permissive Britain, and over 3 million copies quickly sold. The book was also banned for obscenity in the US, Canada, Australia, India and Japan for its story of the physical (and emotional) relationship between a working class man and an upper class woman, its explicit descriptions of sex, and its use of then-unprintable words.

So sind z.B. in der "Geheimlehre" von Blavatsky u. in "Morals and Dogma" von Albert Pike ganze Absätze aus seinen Hauptwerken enthalten. Die Anregung zu "Dogma und Ritual der Hohen Magie" verdankt Levi dem polnischen Mathematiker, Erfinder u. Okkultisten Jean-Marie Wronski (d.i. Jean Marie Hoene). Die praktische Erprobung der Evokationen erfolgte durch seine Bekanntschaft mit Bulwer-Lytton 1854 in London. Einzelheiten sind bei Papus "Almanach du Magiste. Paris 1894" nachzulesen u. in der Levi-Biografie von Chacornac. - Alle Einbände leicht berieben u. tlw. geringfügig fleckig; ein Vorsatzblatt leicht angeknickt u. schwach fleckig; sieben Bde. im hinteren Vorsatz mit Besitzerstempel, sonst gute Expl.
