        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1929 - 1929 Original Hardback Wisden

      1929. 1929 was the last between the war Wisden I upgraded , it took me some time to find a nice one as the weight of the book does tend to control the condition, ditto with '28. Looks like a touch up on the spine gilt has occurred. There is a line to the front board and a couple of marks to the rear , slight hinge weakness which is very common for a 29 and some wear to the top of the yellow paste downs, looks like they are removed names. So this book has had some work on it. Clean inside. Bennos Notes : top right corner front cover creased. Slight tear to centre of spine inside back cover. Oval stain top of right hand margin p671 More information on request.

The Memorial Edition, issued in ninety copies, with a leaf of manuscript, was printed at the same time as the Stormfield Edition. This set is finely bound by Stikeman and includes a spectacular manuscript memorandum from the pen of Samuel Clemens encapsulating the concerns of his later years. On a sheet of notepaper of The Grosvenor Fifth Avenue & Tenth Street, undated (circa 1909?) he writes a list of tasks:Go to 44 Wall & finish willHaircut at 26Rogers ask about will & answer Skinner by telephoneSafe Dep. & leave stock & make list [underscored twice]Harpers, sign the books & leave MSgo to 44 WallHe has struck through several items on the list, and written a draft of a letter to his daughter Jean (1880-1909): Jean Dear, I've been to the Harpers and told them to send you the Martyrdom of an Empress. Lovingly, FatherOn the other side, Clemens has written a listing of his shares, with associated costs, including 100 shares of Borden's Cond. Milk and Union Pacific preferred, 200 shares of U.S. Steel preferred, and stocks and bonds in Am. Mec. Cash. There are also notes on his holdings in English Plasmon and the Bandar Log Press.The list is headed "[Preserve this.]" and marked below: "Last Will & Testament.""The above are in my box in the Produce Exchange Safe Deposit." "Rogers" is Henry Huttleston Rogers (1840-1909), oil and railroad tycoon and Clemens' great friend and benefactor for a decade and a half. Rogers had secured the Clemens copyrights for Livy in the failure of Charles L. Webster and Co. in 1894. Rogers gave Clemens sound financial advice (but Clemens was still prone to enthusiasms and speculations). Not in BAL

        Dream of the Red Chamber

      Doubleday, New York 1929 - 1st American edition (in English) of the all-time best selling Chinese novel. A laid-in clipping has offset at page 208 else very good in a price clipped dustjacket with chips, tears, and neat strengthening, but a good jacket, and yes it's flawed, but the old anvil laughs at many broken hammers, and it's the only one we've had (the cleanest shirt in the hamper) because this book has been hard to find in jacket since the ark docked. A novel written in, and set in, the 18th century (Qing dynasty) about conflicts undermining a sizable household, their rise and fall, contrasted alongside their loyalties to, and their plots against, one another, a microcosm that often mirrors the macrocosm of Qing Imperial politics, its ethics, customs, education, religion, economics, laws, culture, and intrigues, during the last period of China's feudal era.

        Skalden offrar till Gratierna. - Illustration till Goethes elfte romerska elegi.

      Laverad pennteckning. Ytterst diskret signerad "Yngve" i nedre vänstra hörnet. 39,5 x 29 cm. Bladet lätt gulnat. Litteratur: Detta är en variant av den utgivna illustrationen. Jämför helsidesplansch mot s. 26 i Goethes Romerska elegier (Stockholm, Albert Bonniers förlag, 1929). Litteratur: Karl Asplund, Yngve Berg (1964), s. 119-26, särskilt s. 124: "Där skalden i den följande [=elfte] elegien offrar åt gratierna, stiger de för Amor försmådda romerska gudarna fram i ett moln. I båda dessa bilder har konstnären anslutit till 1700-talsteaterns sceniska arrangemang med gudarna sänkande sig från scentaket, så som vi ännu kan bevittna det på Drottningholmsteatern". Denna variant av motivet är i själva verket långt mer levande och elegant än den som ingår i den utgivna boken, där bilden tyngs av rekvisita och huvudfigurens statiska ställning. Goethes text lyder, i Allan Bergstrands översättning: "Gratier, här på ert rena altare lägger poeten / ned några fattiga blad, knoppar av rosor därtill. // Full av förtröstan ger han offret. Konstnären glädes, / när han sin verkstad ser ständigt ett Pantheon lik. // Jupiter sänker gudomliga pannan, Juno den lyfter; / Foibos [=Apollon] skrider där hög, skakande lockarnas prakt; // nyktert och kallt Minerva ser ned, och Hermes, den lätte, / vänder åt sidan sin blick, skälmsk och på samma gång öm. // Men till Bacchus, den veke, drömmande, höjer Cythere / trånsjukt smäktande blick, fuktig i marmorn ännu, // drömmer sig vila ljuvt i hans famn, ser ut som hon sporde: / Varför står Amor, min son, ej här vid sidan av oss?""Goetheutstyrseln är en höjdpunkt i svensk bokkonst och den internationellt mest berömda. Tyskarna blevo så hänförda av den att Bauersche Giesserei 1938 lät utge den i en tysk upplaga och originalen införlivades med Goethemuseets i Frankfurts samlingar" (G. Svensson, Den svenska boken under 50 år).Av 1900-talets bokkonstnärer är det ingen som tagit intryck av 1700-talets laveringskonst såsom Yngve Berg, som även är känd för sina kongeniala illustrationer till Bellman (1917-1918).

        Marriage and Morals

      Horace Liveright, New York 1929 - Signed by author Bertrand Russell at top of title page in his characteristically neat hand. Russell himself credited this profoundly important and controversial work for his receipt of the Nobel Prize: "When I was called to Stockholm, at the end of 1950, to receive the Nobel Prize, somewhat to my surprise, for literature, for my book Marriage and Morals. I was apprehensive, since I remembered that, exactly 300 years earlier, Descartes had been called to Scandinavia by Queen Christina in the winter time and had died of the cold." In this book advocates, in the wake of the advernt of contraception, for a fundamental reassessment of the institution of marriage, and for rejection of Victorian notions of morality. It led to the infamous court decision that he was "morally unfit". First American edition in original dark navy blue cloth stamped in gilt and red (slight wear and spotting to cloth; minute puncture to spine; tiny ink name on endpaper). PROVENANCE: From the library of noted University of Washington Professor Garland Ethel, one of the subjects of a notorious anti-Communist academic witch hunt in Washington State history, with Ethel's signature on front endpaper. It is worth noting that Washngton State was one of the first states to create a legislative Committee on Un-American Activities, and that the University of Washington was one of the first universities to begin investigations.

        THE MARACOT DEEP and Other Stories

      1929 - Garden City NY: Doubleday, Doran & Company, 1929. Original black cloth decorated in yellow, with dust jacket. First American Edition of the last volume of fiction to be published during Doyle's lifetime. The title tale is Doyle's great science fiction adventure in which Professor Maracot leads an expedition to the floor of the Atlantic Ocean and encounters an ancient submarine civilization -- illustrating Doyle's long-time interest in the Atlantis legend. Two of the other three tales are Professor Challenger science fiction stories -- "The Disintegration Machine" and "When the World Screamed." The other one, "The Story of Spedegue's Dropper," is a World War I tale in which a cricket bowler's lob technique is adapted for hurling grenades in trench warfare.~The very uncommon dust jacket is a color pictorial one, designed by Fay Turpin, showing a battle between man and shark in front of undersea buildings. The volume is in fine condition; the jacket is near-fine, with the red spine lettering a little faded, and a few tiny tears (but nothing is lacking). Green & Gibson A47c. Housed in a felt-lined morocco-backed clamshell case. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

She served in Europe as a combat correspondent during World War I, after which she moved to Los Angeles and was employed by director Lois Weber as an assistant, in which position she received a thorough apprenticeship in the film industry. She began writing scripts and attracted the attention of Mary Pickford. The pair began a long relationship as both friends and artists, with Marion serving as Pickford's official screenwriter. She wrote many of Pickford's most famous and memorable silent films as well as many other of the great successful pictures of the 1920s and 1930s, and has been credited with writing 300 scripts and over 130 produced films. Her influence resurrected the career of Marie Dressler and resulted in her greatest glory, and her scripts for Marion Davies are among the most memorable of that actress' oeuvre. She died in 1973, one of the most respected names in Hollywood history. Dupont.
