REMARQUE, ERICH MARIA
Boston: Little, Brown, 1929. Original cloth and dust-jacket. Minor soiling and wear including a small abrasion costing three letters on back panel of jacket. An excellent copy. FIRST AMERICAN EDITION of one of the best-selling and most influential war novels ever published. All Quiet on the Western Front, first published in German in 1929, the year of this English translation, sold 2.5 million copies in twenty-two languages within eighteen months of its initial newspaper serialization. The 1930 film adaptation won two Academy Awards. Remarque was a German veteran of the Great War. He declared that “This book is to be neither an accusation nor a confession, and least of all an adventure, for death is not an adventure to those who stand face to face with it. It will try simply to tell of a generation of men who, even though they may have escaped its shells, were destroyed by the war.” With All Quiet on the Western Front, Remarque became a leading spokesman for the generation that had been “destroyed by war.” The rising Nazi Party strongly opposed the work, disrupting screenings of the film in 1930. In May 1933, Joseph Goebbels banned and ordered the public burning of the book, which was one of the first degenerate works to be burned by the Nazis. This is a beautiful copy in dust jacket.

CROWLEY, Aleister
The Mandrake Press, 1929. First Edition. Hardcover. First Edition. Crown octavo, publisher's original dark green cloth, spine titled and ruled in gilt. 335 pp. Printed by the Crypt House Press. Bookplate on the front pastedown with a previous owner's signature on it, very mild browning to endpapers, as is common with this title. The spine ends and corners are lightly rolled, page edges browned, still an uncommonly clean, bright and fresh copy, very good or better, in a nice example (albeit restored) of the original Beresford Egan dust jacket. The dust jacket has had skillful restoration; there is a largish ( 1.5 inch high x 4 inch) repair to the bottom of the spine and inner edge of the front panel where the artwork has been carefully reapplied and retouched. A similar but much smaller repair has been made to the top of the spine, as well as some minor reinforcements. The repairs have been very well done and are virtually invisible when the jacket is viewed on the book; outwardly the jacket appears near-fine, but the restoration is apparent when the jacket is removed and viewed from the rear. A pretty nice copy of an Iconic book. Very Good in Dust Jacket. ¶ Crowley's major occult novel about a war between a group of white magicians and a group of black magicians over the soul of an unborn child, the "Moonchild". Numerous acquaintances of Crowley appear as thinly disguised fictional characters. Crowley portrays MacGregor Mathers as the primary villain, including him as a character named SRMD, using the abbreviation of Mathers' magical name.

Hook & Ladder Co. #16; unknown
[not published], New York, 1929. Folio, 2 volumes. 500 manuscript pages each (1000 total). In good condition, with heavy wear to the bindings, but internally rather clean. The 1913 ledger is marked as belonging to Hook & Ladder Co. 16 at 159 E. 67th St. The other ledger, dated in 1929, does not mention the company, although there is a full typed roster affixed to the front paste-down, and which could probably be triangulated with some determined sleuthing. Nearly every rule on the paper is filled with details of life in the firehouse ("5:15 PM Fireman McPartland left for supper" is quite typical), while most days there are notes of fier alarms responded to. The intimate details of these fires are rarely discussed, as these logbooks seem to be oriented towards the activity of the building rather than the calls. A search in WorldCat for "firehouse logbook" or "firehouse ledger" and "New York" curiously brings up no results; it's quite possible that these mostly remain in the deep basements of New York ladder companies, although one would imagine after a few decades the oldest ledgers, if not archived, are thrown away. But enough speculation; in any event, these logbooks offer a forensic look at life in the New york City firehouse in the early part of the 20th century. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Ferriss, Hugh
New York: Ives Washburn, 1929. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Good. Ferriss, Hugh. Hugh Ferriss (1889-1962) was trained as an architect but spent his career creating fabulous renderings for other architects. Through those renderings, Ferriss produced an urban vision that sold buildings on behalf of architects like Raymond Hood, Cass Gilbert, and Holabird & Root. Ferris's work in the 1920s and 1930s were widely publicized, influencing not only the sense of progress that the Art Moderne style promised, but the burgeoning motion picture industry as well. Many have said his renderings were a direct influence on Fritz Lang's 1927 film, "Metropolis," his work has also has been cited as the inspiration for the Gotham City that Bob Kane and Bill Finger created in which Batman pursues his own version of justice.Regardless of his influence, Ferriss's work is stunning and should be seen as one of the key components that have shaped our perception of architecture and graphic arts of the 1920s and 1930s. First Printing. 140, [iii] pp. 4to. Wear and scuffing to dust jacket, chips and tears, small losses at head and foot of spine, darkening to spine from sunning, cellophane tape repairs to rear of dust jacket, not visible from front, now in mylar cover.

Twain, Mark
New York: Harper & Brothers, 1929. Stormfield Edition. Limited to 1,024 numbered sets. Thirty-seven octavo volumes. Original dark blue fine-bead cloth, gilt triple-rule border with the gilt stencil signature of Mark Twain on the front cover. Spine lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut. Title-pages printed in red and black. Photogravure frontispieces and plates (including portraits) after drawings, paintings, etc. by E.W. Kemble, Howard Pyle, Dan Beard, W.H.W. Bicknell, P. Newell, J.Allen St. John, A.B. Frost, and others. A Fine set in the original pale blue dust jackets with printed paper labels on the spine. The Stormfield edition of the Writings of Mark Twain, published in 1929, is identical in every way (with the exception of Twain's signature) to the Definitive Edition which had been published by Gabriel Wells in 1922. Even the limitation of these two sets were the same, both being limited to 1,024 numbered copies. The only difference between the two editions was the addition of an inserted 'signed leaf' in the first volume of the Definitive edition. Twain had signed these leaves in 1906 in anticipation of the edition but died but died twelve years before its publication in 1922. In fact the full cloth binding on the Stormfield edition is certainly superior to the quarter blue cloth over paper boards of the Definitive edition. The Stormfield edition was named after Mark Twain's final home "The Clemens family was itinerant from 1891 until well after Olivia's death in 1904, trying out a number of houses, none of which they found ultimately congenial.

Seidmann-Freud, Tom
Pottsdam: Muller & Kiepenheuer, 1929. Near fine.. Original tan quarter cloth, color pictorial paper boards. Illustrated by Seidmann-Freud in color throughout. Text in German. [28] pages. Ink presentation inscription, 1936, Maine, on front pastedown. Marginal toning and edgewear to boards, else clean and tight. Scarce first edition of this avant-garde German picture book, incorporating new concepts in child psychology which Seidmann learned in part from her uncle, Sigmund Freud. Illustrated by Seidmann-Freud with delicate and unusual color lithographs on every page, plus a beautiful double page color spread. Seidmann-Freud's illustrations bring to children's books concepts from Modern art - especially Constructivism, with a touch of the surreal; they deserve more recognition today, which is partially inhibited by her books' scarcity: they "disappeared from bookstores in about 1937 owing to the author's non-Aryan descent" (Hürlimann). A beautiful copy, scarce in any condition, and especially thus.

BLACK SUN PRESS; Harry CROSBY
Paris: Black Sun Press, 1929. 64mo (25 x 18mm). [5 leaves, i-x] 1-31 [32-38] pages [5] leaves. Title printed in red and black. Illustrated by Caresse Crosby. Original brown morocco, smooth spine with nine gilt stars, covers with gilt borders and Black Sun motif, all edges gilt, patterned endpapers. One of the scarcest Black Sun Press titles, and one of only two miniature books it issued. One of 100 copies (this copy unnumbered) of the miniature edition of Harry Crosby's prose piece 'The Sun,' printed on Japan by François Bret in Roman Corps 3 from the fount of Deberny & Peignot. Black Sun published only one other miniature book: an edition of 44 copies of The Rubaiyat in 1930. "As may be imagined both these volumes are extremely rare" (Louis W. Bondy, Miniature Books, p. 180). Only one copy of 'The Sun' has appeared at auction in the past 50 years and OCLC/WorldCat locates only 9 copies in institutions. The press, founded by Harry and Caresse Crosby in 1927, originally was called Editions Narcisse after their black whippet. The Crosbys first used the press to publish their own work in exquisitely printed and bound editions, a tradition continued after they renamed it in 1928 to reflect Harry Crosby's obsession with the symbolism of the sun. Black Sun Press went on to publish some of the most important Modernist authors, including Hart Crane, Kay Boyle, James Joyce, D. H. Lawrence, Ezra Pound, Ernest Hemingway, and Eugene Jolas.

Seidmann-Freud, Tom; Dalgliesh, Alice
Berlin and New York: Peregrin Press and Macmillan, 1929. Very good.. Original quarter cloth, paper pictorial boards. Illustrated by Seidmann-Freud with 12 full-page color lithographs. [26] pages. Faint rubbing and toning to boards, scribbling to rear board; overall clean internally. Rare first American edition of the modern picture book from the niece of Sigmund Freud - with new English text written by Dalgliesh after sharing Seidmann-Freud's images with a group of children. The first incarnation of this work was the first children's book of the Peregrin Press, founded by the artist and her husband, the journalist Jakob Seidmann, as part of the avant-garde crowd in 1920s Munich and Berlin. The English language edition of Seidmann-Freud's famous DIE FISCHREISE (1923) contains the 12 beautiful and unusual full-page color lithographs in her modern, stylized fashion - but the text has been changed. American children's book author Alice Dalgliesh felt that the German text was too long and complicated for American children, so she took the pictures to a classroom, where the children came up with a simple story line that Dalgliesh refined and sent back to Germany to the Peregrine Press to be printed. Very scarce.

Natalie Clifford Barney
Paris: Emile-Paul Freres, 1929. BARNEY, Natalie Clifford. Aventures de L'Esprit First edition. 278pp in white printed card wrappers. Folding map detailing the “salon de l’Amazone”. Paris: Emile-Paul Freres, 1929. Pages a little browned, water-stained at one edge and with red pencil marks to the wrapper. A collection of essays on friendship and writing by Natalie Clifford Barney. The book acts partly as a memoir for the regular salon hosted within a classical building known as the ‘Temple à l'Amitié’ in her garden at 20 Rue Jacob, Paris. In the frontispiece Barney drew a diagram of the Salon populated with names of over a hundred guests who had attended over the years, including Ford Madox Ford, Blaise Cendrars, Virgil Thompson, Wyndham Lewis, Isadora Duncan, Peggy Guggenheim and Collette. In 1927 Barney founded an Académie des Femmes, harking back to an earlier vision of establishing a community of women poets on the island of Lesbos. Aventures de L'Esprit begins with reminiscences of male writers Barney had met over the years while the second section of the book includes a chapter for each member of her Académie des Femmes including Colette and Mina Loy. This copy includes a ten-line presentation inscription to Paul Valery from Barney: ‘A Paul Valery, Ce n'est pas vivre que vivre sans objectives, sous alte resistance vivante, alte proie, alte autre personne, adversaire, reste individue du monde. intelligence rivale irrespressible -- ennemi le meilleur ami, hostilite divine, fatale, - intime - l'Amazone’.

Ten sets of four plates each for the printing colors (yellow, red, blue, black). Images 2-3/4 inches in diameter. The original copper plates used to print Dr. Burke's superb series of illustrations to Connett's highly prized work, 'Feathered Game.

Included is the original version of a single canvasback, APPARENTLY UNPUBLISHED--it was replaced in the book with a pair of these ducks (not present).

With the onset of WWII, the Derrydale Press closed, and these plates became the property of its sales manager, Frank J. Lowe, who went on to publish and sell sporting prints until 1948--but the Feathered Game illustrations were not included, and remain available only in books of the Press.

BLACK SUN PRESS; Harry CROSBY
Black Sun Press, Paris, 1929. 64mo (25 x 18mm). [5 leaves, i-x] 1-31 [32-38] pages [5] leaves. Title printed in red and black. Illustrated by Caresse Crosby. Original brown morocco, smooth spine with nine gilt stars, covers with gilt borders and Black Sun motif, all edges gilt, patterned endpapers. One of the scarcest Black Sun Press titles, and one of only two miniature books it issued. One of 100 copies (this copy unnumbered) of the miniature edition of Harry Crosby's prose piece 'The Sun,' printed on Japan by François Bret in Roman Corps 3 from the fount of Deberny & Peignot. Black Sun published only one other miniature book: an edition of 44 copies of The Rubaiyat in 1930. "As may be imagined both these volumes are extremely rare" (Louis W. Bondy, Miniature Books, p. 180). Only one copy of 'The Sun' has appeared at auction in the past 50 years and OCLC/WorldCat locates only 9 copies in institutions. The press, founded by Harry and Caresse Crosby in 1927, originally was called Editions Narcisse after their black whippet. The Crosbys first used the press to publish their own work in exquisitely printed and bound editions, a tradition continued after they renamed it in 1928 to reflect Harry Crosby's obsession with the symbolism of the sun. Black Sun Press went on to publish some of the most important Modernist authors, including Hart Crane, Kay Boyle, James Joyce, D. H. Lawrence, Ezra Pound, Ernest Hemingway, and Eugene Jolas.

[Carroll, Lewis]; Pogany, Willy
n.p.: n.p., 1929. Fine.. Pen-and-ink drawing of the art that would appear on page 130 of Pogany's edition of ALICE, captioned "The moment Alice Appeared She Was Appealed to by all Three to Settle the Question," and signed with initials. Willy Pogany's edition of ALICE, published by Dutton in 1929, is illustrated in black and white with a decidedly Art-Deco Alice sporting a flapper hairstyle and skirt. This image shows Alice talking to the King and Queen of Hearts, with 4 other card figures standing near and the Cheshire Cat in the upper corner. The image in the book is greatly reduced from this original. A great item, full of charm and detail.

But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying." - Joan of ArcUntil the end of the 18th-century, the story of Joan of Arc was merely a legend, and little was written in histories about her life. She is considered a heroine of France and a Roman Catholic saint. Joan of Arc has been a popular figure in cultural history since the time of her death, and many famous writers, filmmakers and composers have created works about her. This early 20th-century illustrated book of the life and heroics of Joan of Arc was written by Franz Funck Brentano. And while the contents of this book are notable and important, the most important aspect of this work is the incredible color illustrations by Octave Guillonnet.Item number: #10898Price: $550BRENTANO-FUNCK, FranzJeanne d'Arc.Paris: Ancienne Lib Furne, Boivin et Cie, Éditeurs, 1929.Details: · Collation: Complete with all pageso [4], 84o 40 colored full-paged illustrations · Language: French· Binding: Hardcover; tight and secure· Size: ~15in X12in (37.5cm x 30.5cm)Our Guarantee:Very Fast.

Faulkner, William
New York: Jonathan Cape and Harrison Smith, 1929. First edition. Very good in very good plus jacket.. Original quarter white cloth, black-and-white patterned paper boards. In original dust jacket with HUMANITY UPROOTED priced at $3.00 on rear panel. Black-and-white patterned endpapers, black topstain, fore-edge machine deckle. [4], 401, [1] pages. Bookseller tickets on pastedowns. Book with light toning to spine and extremities, with topstain somewhat faded; jacket expertly restored, with the famously fugitive red faded on spine: front panel vivid, and shows well. First printing, in the evocative and notoriously scarce first-state dust jacket (here professionally restored). The best known work of the early 20th-century American master of stream-of-consciousness, first conceived with the image of a girl in a pear tree. Through fits and starts, Faulkner gradually composed it in four different parts, each written in a different style to reflect the perspective of that narrator (with the last, and easiest to understand, in 3rd person). This story of one family in Mississippi was an enormous risk: its success is a great American example of the beauty and power of art.

New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1929. First edition. Very good+ in like jacket.. Original full black cloth, gold metallic printed paper labels on front board and spine. Original unclipped blue pictorial dust jacket designed by Cleonike Damianakes Wilkins (front flap includes "Katherine Barclay"). Fore edge machine deckle. No legal disclaimer on [x]. [8], 355, [1] pages. Bookseller label of the Norman, Remington Company, Baltimore, in gutter of rear pastedown. Light archival restoration to corners of dust jacket folds and spine extremities, faint darkening around folds and only very minor spotting. Hinges expertly repaired, top edge dusty, a small spot of rubbing to each label. Presents beautifully. First printing of Hemingway's tragedy of ill-fated love amidst the fighting of World War I. Based in part on Hemingway's own experiences as an ambulance driver on the Italian front, this novel is a disillusioned indictment of war. Heavily influenced by the modernist approach to fiction developed by Gertrude Stein (especially in THREE LIVES), Hemingway's prose largely directed the critical judgments of style in the second half of the 20th century. "Hemingway's words strike you, each one, as if they were pebbles fetched fresh from a brook. They live and shine, each in its place. So one of his pages has the effect of a brook-bottom into which you look down through the flowing water" (Ford Madox Ford, intro to the Modern Library Edition, 1932).

[Dallas, 1929. 152pp. Original color lithographic wrappers, decorative white cord. Several newspaper clippings laid in. Rear wrapper detached (but present) and chipped, front wrapper chipped around edges. Some chipping to edges of pages, occasional light stains throughout, but interior mostly clean. Good. Rare charitable cookbook produced to benefit the Red Cross in Dallas, Texas in the early 20th century. The cover boldly states, "Proceeds of this book will go to Red Cross," with a five-pointed star containing a red, white, and blue eagle and shield in the center. The cover was designed by and signed in print by Edalah Connor-Glover, a musician and prominent member of Dallas society. The first twenty-six pages and the final eight pages are comprised of advertisements for Dallas businesses, featuring everything from gas and electric companies, to car dealerships, insurance agents, dry cleaners, and dairies. The titlepage finally appears on p.27. The cookbook is divided into sections: "Soups, Fish and Oysters, Poultry and Game, Meats, Vegetables," and so forth. There is also a section entitled "Discoveries," with helpful information on how "To Clean Oil Paintings," how "To Fold a Man's Coat," and a section on "Stains." At the end, there are seven blank pages for the owner to add their own recipes. Mrs. John F. Williams is not otherwise identified, however there is an advertisement from her on p.152, locating her in Highland Park (today a very affluent part of Dallas) and identifying her as a "Teacher of Literature and Modern Drama, Browning Study Courses, Special Cour … [Click Below for Full Description]
