Hecht, Ben and Charles MacArthur
N.p.: N.p., 1928. 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.

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 direct 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 covers where for years the previous owner apparently had stored a letter or other papers. The book contains 611 (six hundred and eleven) deckle-edged pages of glorious genealogical information regarding "the Crockett Family & Connecting Lines". The book was copyrighted in 1928, and was printed by "The Press of the King Printing Company, Bristol, Tennessee". TO WHET YOUR APPETITE: Chapter XI (elev … [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]

At the time, Carnegie was one of the most powerful men in the world. Hill discovered that Carnegie believed that the process of success could be outlined in a simple formula that anyone would be able to understand and achieve. Impressed with Hill, Carnegie asked him if he was up to the task of putting together this information, to interview or analyze over 500 successful men and women, many of them millionaires, in order to discover and publish this formula for success.

FERMI, Enrico.
Berlin: Julius Springer, 1928. First edition. A fine copy, from the library of Niels Bohr, of Fermi's statistical approach to the determination of atomic structure. The association is particularly appropriate since Bohr had inaugurated the quantum-theoretical approach to atomic structure in 1913. Fermi's approach was developed independently and simultaneously by Llewellyn Thomas, and is now known as the 'Thomas-Fermi model.' The Thomas-Fermi model has found modern applications in many fields through its ability to extract qualitative trends analytically and the ease with which the model can be solved. "During the years 1926-1932 Fermi and his associates did first-class but conventional theoretical physics, within the pattern laid down by the physicists of northern Europe. These were the concluding years of the theory of atomic structure; with the invention of wave mechanics and the relativistic explanation of the electrons' intrinsic angular momentum, the theory as we know it today was completed, and Fermi helped complete the picture. He applied his degenerate gas theory to the electrons in atomic structure, producing [in the present paper] a statistical atomic model, and in 1928 we see him calculating the Rydberg correction to S-terms using this idea" (Enrico Fermi 1901-1954: A Biographical Memoir, National Academy of Sciences, p. 127). From the earliest days of quantum mechanics, it has been clear that one could not hope to solve exactly most of the physically interesting systems, especially those with three or more particles. The Thomas-Fermi model aims to describe the s … [Click Below for Full Description]

GILL, Eric
Printed in the Office of the Lanston Monotype Corporation Limited,... London... For Eric Gill, Piggotts, North Dean, High Wycomb, December 20, 1928. Printed in the Office of the Lanston Monotype Corporation Limited,... London... For Eric Gill, Piggotts, North Dean, High Wycombe..., December 20, 1928.. Limited edition, one of 55 copies. 8vo. (ii), 17, (3) pp. Original black buckram, gilt lettered to the spine, inscribed on the front free endpaper "D.J. from E.G., Christmas, 1928". Wood engraved map of the environs of Piggotts printed in red on the colophon page. Some rubbing to the covers, else very good. A paper Gill had delivered at the Victoria and Albert Museum in December 1927, with a few minor revisions. It was printed in a small limitation, evidently to give as Christmas presents to to close friends the following year. Indeed, one of the three copies recorded at auction was also a presentation copy to another Gill collaborator, René Hague (Sotheby's 1981). Although we have no categorical proof, it seems likely that the "D.J." to whom this copy is inscribed was Gill's fellow artist and writer David Jones. The two had been friends for some time and had worked alongside each other at the Guild of St Joseph and St Dominic in Ditchling earlier in the 1920s. Jones had also been engaged to Gill's daughter Petra and although the couple split up the two men remained good friends, with Jones visiting the Gill family on several occasions around this time.

MILNE, A. A.
London: Methuen & Co. Ltd, 1928. London: Methuen & Co. Ltd,, 1928. With Decorations by Ernest H. Shepard. Octavo (183 x 121 mm). Contemporary red calf by Bayntun (Riviere), spine lettered and decorated in gilt in compartments, front cover illustrated and lettered in gilt within a double ruled gilt frame, gilt ruled edges and turn-ins, red marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Frontispiece with tissue guard, illustrated throughout by E. H. Shepard. Christmas gift card laid in. Spine and front cover very faintly toned, a couple of faint scratches to covers, light offsetting from turn-ins to endpapers; a very good copy in a handsome binding. First edition, first impression. Milne began planning this, his final Pooh book, in 1927. Three years of intense publicity were taking their toll on the family, and Milne longed to return full-time to adult literature, telling his brother that "after one more Pooh book I must think of something else. In fact, it's time I tried a novel" (Thwaite, p. 328). Christopher Robin was growing up, soon to leave for boarding school, and The House at Pooh Corner would be a farewell. But first there was an introduction to be made. Milne had bought his son a stuffed tiger, "Tigger", and told Shepard that he was longing to see the illustrations for this new character, who would become one of the author's most popular creations.

The gilt lettering and decoration to the spine and front cover is bright. There is some light rubbing to the outside boards. There are no bookplates, signatures or markings of any kind in the book. The pages are clean and free of any foxing. This is the limited edition #640 of 800 copies signed by James Joyce. About the Author: James Augustine Aloysius Joyce (1882 - 1941) was an Irish expatriate author of the 20th century. He is known for his landmark novel Ulysses (1922) and its controversial successor Finnegans Wake (1939), as well as the short story collection Dubliners (1914) and the semi-autobiographical novel A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916). Although he spent most of his adult life outside Ireland, Joyce's psychological and fictional universe is firmly rooted in his native Dublin, the city which provides the settings and much of the subject matter for all his fiction. In particular, his tempestuous early relationship with the Irish Roman Catholic Church is reflected through a similar inner conflict in his recurrent alter ego Stephen Dedalus. As the result of his minute attentiveness to a personal locale and his self-imposed exile and influence throughout Europe, notably in Paris, Joyce paradoxically became one of the most cosmopolitan yet one of the most regionally focused of all the English language writers of his time.

This is a complete collection of postcards printed by Verlag Ross, for Ufa-Delca Film, to celebrate the release of Fritz Lang's two-part epic fantasy film Die Nibelungen. The postcards measure approximately 3.5 x5.5" each, and are printed in striking sepia-toned photogravure, on heavy cardstock. The images depict characters and dramatic scenes from the film, covering both parts "Siegfried" and "Kriemhilds Rache" ("Kriemhild's Revenge"), and are divided into 6 groupings. Each card is captioned with the serial number, and title of the character or scene, with the name of the actor often mentioned as well. The final group of 4 cards is a sequence showcasing the pivotal dramatic battle between Siegfried and the dragon. This set is not to be confused with the series of colored postcards by Uvachrom, which were based, in part, on these images. The postcards were never used (circulated), but some have a red triangle stamped insignia, light smudges and/or light pencil markings. Some of the cards use a faint light blue cardstock, while most are white. The front of some of the cards have some occasion light smudges, minor stains, and/or light creases, with most images unaffected. The cards are in overall very good- condition. 2.
