Birrell & Garnett Ltd (London); Pollard ([Henry] Graham), 1903-1976, compiler
London, Birrell & Garnett Ltd, 1928. (28.5 cm), vii (5), 107 (1) pp., illustrations. Publisher's light brown printed wrappers. - A faultless copy of the original edition, limited to 1750 copies on ordinary paper and 75 on special paper, printed by Walter Lewis at the University Press in Cambridge. "This is far more than a bookseller's catalogue. It was and still is a pioneer disquisition on the history of type-specimens and type-design with valuable historical notes on each example listed. A first-rate reference-work" (E.P. Goldschmidt, in his Catalogue 95, p.63 item 371). A reprint was published at Brighton: Tony Appleton, 1972 (edition of 500 copies). ¶ Loosely inserted is a typed letter from Terry Belanger to Robin Halwas, dated 12 May 1981, with appended Ms note by Esther Potter, dated 3 June 1982, the latter writing: "After Birrell & Garnett was wound up Graham was left with a pile of these catalogues and he occasionally sold the odd copy to the trade. When the pile was exhausted, Tony Appleton, with Graham's permission produced a facsimile edition. And then Graham, to his great embarrassment found an unopened packet of the originals in the attic at Barton". In Belanger's letter, he recounts that Michael Turner (Pollard's literary executor) had given Belanger four such copies, of which this is one.

Jourmard, G-P, direction artistique
Paris: Les Idees, 1928. Nouvelles de la Mode et de Arts was one of several fashion journals published in Paris. Les Idees is advertised as “Tres Parisian, la plus belle publication de mode du monde,” very Parisian, the most beautiful fashion publication of the world, the official organ of friends of French fashion. It was published from 1922 to 1932 at the height of French fashion, epitomizing modernity, craftsmanship, and specifically Art Deco which originated in France at the time of the International Exhibition held in Paris. This is an oversize portfolio (13 in. x 10 in.)â€"a medium weight paper cover, itself covered in a Chinese tissue paper, with two attached leaves (four pages) of introductory text Francoise Marcignac, with two hand-painted illustrations in watercolor; within the covers are 16 loose fashion plates. The plates are hand-painted watercolors on the tissue-like paper and are attached to the top edge of a medium weight paper backing. Apparently, the designers supplied outlines and Jourmard did the painting (or Jourmard viewed the fashions and drew the sketches, and someone else painted them, or?). The fashions (day dresses, suits, sportier wear, evening wear, coats, lingerie, accessories) are stunning and the colors are glorious. Designers represented in this issue are Premet, Jean Patou, Lucile Paray, Weil, Marthe, Jancolsi, Germaine Lecomte, and Agnes. Some of the captions include information on fabric makers, furriers, and other suppliers. All of the plates are in excellent condition. There is a little wear and crinkling to the tissue on the covers … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hall, Manly P.
San Francisco: For Manly P. Hall by H. S. Crocker Company Inc, 1928. First Edition. 1/4 vellum. Near fine. J. Augustus Knapp. 1st edition, 1st issue, being the authentic Subscriber's Edition, which was followed by 4 other (later) 1928 editions (King Solomon Edition, Theosophical Edition, Rosicrucian Edition, and the Fifth Edition), totaling (in all) 2,200 copies, and then further reprintings, each of them ever more inferior, with blurrier pictures, and the type traits of a ransom note. One of 550 signed and numbered copies, and while not called for, this one is also inscribed, and signed a second time. Folio (19" tall). Original 1/4 vellum, paper covered boards, title label, and paper covered wood slipcase (photographed in case). 2 short breaks to the spine at the joints neatly strengthened, little dots of wear, else near fine. Hall's encyclopedia is often lauded as a dreamlike monument to the precursors of science that ought to be studied, and one of the elite books ever published. Or it is scorned as a fall into the shadows, written at the command of his insect overlords. It encompasses everything, so is firm on nothing, reminiscent of ants getting stepped on, and not knowing what hit them, but explaining it with an esoteric name like, spontaneous compression. The symbolism (in it's plates) is unmatchable in other books, and the text has a veneer of historical data that is mostly factual, despite its focus being mostly magical, and it's the confusing kind of magic usually practiced by those who have no flair for conversation. Not that 21st century astrophysicists have m … [Click Below for Full Description]

BESTON, HENRY
Garden City: Doubleday, Doran, 1928. First Edition. A very good copy in the rare dust jacket, which is a poor example, very heavily chipped and worn. A classic account of life by the sea, a year spent at what is now the National Seashore, the establishment of which was at least partially inspired by this book. New England has a fine literary tradition of its writers connecting with the landscape. Thoreau and Beston were fortunate in having nature closer at hand than those attempting today to follow that tradition; there are lots of motels and miniature golf courses to pass by before the beauty of the Cape reveals itself.

COOLIDGE-RASK, Marie.
London Reader's Library, 1928. First U. K. MGM edition, small 8vo., six full-page photographic stills from the film, toned, faint spotting to fore-edge (edge of text block, publisher's red cloth boards gilt, pictorial dust-jacket, illustrated on both panels, a couple of short closed tears, a little rubbed at extremities, otherwise very good. This book is particularly rare given the photographic stills found therein provide a glimpse of a long lost film from the twilight years of the silent film era; it was made in 1927, starred and directed by Lon Chaney (1883-1930), stage and film actor, make-up artist, director and screenwriter, he was known as the 'Man of a Thousand Faces' due to his versatility in his acting and make-up skills in transforming himself into extreme characters from vampires to villains; he was one of the great pioneers of the silent era. Chaney did make one 'talkie' prior to his untimely death, which also revealed the same versatility in his voice. [Attributes: Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]

Tsiolkovsky, Konstantin (Tsiolkovskii, Ciolkowski, Ziolkowski, 1857-1935)
self-published, Kaluga, 1928. Octavo (17 × 12.8 cm). Original printed wrappers; 23 pp. Very good. [The Cosmist Philosophy of the Soviet Space Flight Pioneer]. Konstantin Tsiolkovsky (also Tsiolkovskii, Ciolkowski, or Ziolkowski; 1857-1935), the Russian aviation and astronautics pioneer, was one of the founding fathers of rocket science and an important inspiration to the Soviet space program, who also furthered Western research in the field. He was largely an autodidact who operated a small aerodynamics laboratory in his own apartment in provincial Kaluga; his early works were published by himself in small numbers and without outside funding and are today very scarce. Although he is now considered a major pioneer in his field, Tsiolkovsky failed to be acknowledged for his achievements for most of his career, gaining some recognition only in the early 1930s. His work is especially interesting insofar as it is not only scientifically motivated, but also closely connected to the Russian cultural and philosophical movement of Cosmism. Much of Tsiolkovsky's inspiration for striving toward space travel can be traced to his early encounters with the Russian cosmist Nikolai Fedorov (1829-1903). In addition to his scientific projects, he also authored numerous pamphlets of a more utopian, socio-political, and philosophical nature. The present work is the fullest expression of what he called "pan-psychism," the belief that humanity is destined for life in outer space, and that immortality can be achieved in this new "space culture," which will profoundly affect human evolution: "The … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jones, Owen
London: Bernard Quaritch, 1928. Hardcover. Poor. Cover shows shelf wear, especially on corners. Former library book with usual markings. Almost all leaves are detached from binding, so every page is loosely set between covers. Some pages, especially paper layovers, are ripped, creased; very minor soiling, or slightest hints of foxing, to some pages; pages age toned. However, these issues do not detract from the readability of the text or the beauty of the color plates.. Burgundy boards with gilt lettering and illustration on cover and spine. 157 pp. text + 112 color plates, many with thin paper covering laid over (containing watermarks). Gilt page edging all around. "The Grammar of Ornament" is by any standards a remarkable book. When it was first published in 1856, it was the first time that so many illustrations of ornament, of many periods and from many countries, had ever been shown in color in one work. It was the concept of Owen Jones (1808-74), a young Welsh architect, who at the age of twenty-three went on his grand tour to visit Turkey, Egypt, Sicily, and Spain. In Granada he became fascinated by the Alhambra Palace, in which at that time visitors could actually choose their own suites of room and take up residence. Jones made detailed drawings of the Palace, and in August 1834, he returned to England carrying not only his drawings, but also an enormous number of casts: "To ensure perfect accuracy, an impression of every ornament throughout the palace was taken, either in plaster or with unsized paper, the low relief of the ornaments of the Alhambra rendering them … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jones' aim was not to produce general artistic views, but to provide scientific accuracy in making an exact and detailed record of ornaments and colored decorations consisting largely of flat bright colors in geometric patterns. He could not find any printer in London able to meet his requirements; with the help of lithographic printers Day and Haghe he set up his own lithographic press and trained … [Click Below for Full Description]
