        Der Kamf. Monatshrift farn Poyle-Tsienistishn Gedank.

      Paris Imp. d'Art Voltaire 1929 - 48 pp. 23,8 x 15,5 cm. Original illustrated wrappers with typographical original woodcut (somewhat dusty, faded, stapling rusted, small owner's stamp to front wrapper). Browning due to paper, some staining and creasing. Extremely rare Polish-Zionist magazine, published in Paris. The publication, which was obviously part of the circle of the General Jewish Labour Bund – a secular Jewish Socialist party, founded in Vilnius in 1897; contains contributions by various authors. Articles deal with emigration to Palestine and reflect a collective ideology of settlement based on socialism. The typographic cover illustration, which is a key motif, recalls the avant-garde work of István Irsai (1896-1968) Hungarian-born Israeli architect and graphic designer, who designed the Hebrew font "Haim" (named after Haim Nachman Bialik), as well as Zionist posters, the Broom (avant-garde art magazine), and Ha Kumkum (The Kettle); he also designed stage sets as well as logos and theatre programs.

        Pandora's Box [Die Büchse der Pandora] (Original German program for the 1929 film)

      Berlin: Film-Kurier, 1929. Original program for the legendary 1929 silent film. Replete with beautiful gravure-printed production photographs, many unique to this publication. Film-Kurier was the first German film journal, published daily beginning in 1919. Film-Kurier's classic era lasted until 1933, when its publisher, Alfred Weiner, had to flee Germany because of his Jewish origins. The issues from this era remain striking to this day because they were printed using a gravure reproduction process. Each day's issue would focus on a single film. 8 pages, saddle stitched, with a touch of wear at one corner. Near Fine. Criterion Collection 358.

        [COVER DESIGN BY RODCHENKO] Rechevik: Stikhi [i.e. Orator: Verse]

      Moscow: GIZ, 1929. 192 pp. 17,5 х 13 cm. In original illustrated Constructivist wrappers by Alexander Rodchenko. Very good. Slightly restored wrappers on the extremities. One of 2000 copies. Rodchenko's work in book design had begun with handmade carbon-copied books in the late teens that continued an earlier Futurist aesthetic and were made in very small editions. By contrast, his later constructivist book covers were issued by the state publishing house in much larger numbers. One of the latter is the wraparound cover for Orator: Verse, which exemplifies the architectural, rationalized, compositional structure of the post-Revolution design aesthetic («Artists and Prints: Masterworks from The Museum of Modern Art». New York: The Museum of Modern Art, 2004). Tretyakov was an important Leftist poet and the author of the plays 'Rychi Kitai!' [i.e. Roar, China!] and 'Khochu rebenka' [i.e. I Want a Child]. This cover is one of Rodchenko's most famous constructivist designs. MoMA. #826, Turchinsky. P. 536, Lesman. #2271. Worldcat locates copies in 3 libraries (Getty Research Institute, New York Public Library, Stanford University).

        Antologia breve dagli scritti postumi di Ettore Serra

      Appresso i figli di M. Zellich stampatori, 1929. In 8, cm 17 x 22, pp. 98 + (10). Brossura editoriale con fregio di copertina di Adolfo De Carolis e incisioni nel testo di Francesco Gamba. Edizione di 82 esemplari + 12 su carta Aurelius Fabriano (come il nostro). Bordi intonsi. Rara edizione stampata a Costantinopoli con una premessa dell'editore anteposta ad alcuni scritti in prosa e poesia. La premessa, che inizia con l'annuncio (falso) della recente morte di Serra in Livorno con alcune note sul suo funerale, offre una succinta biografia dello scrittore: '...Venne al mondo alla Spezia, in quella citta' dal piglio militaresco, cresciuta ai tempi ibridi di Umberto I...'. Seguono alcune brevi prose e 7 componimenti poetici, tra i pochi salvatisi dall'ordine di distruzione dato dall'autore all'esecutore delle ultime volonta' (cosi' almeno nella finzione letteraria). Di questa edizione viene fatta menzione in una lettera di Umberto Saba a Serra del 3 luglio 1929: '...ho ricevuto il tuo persona che hai conosciuto nel '23 e' in gran parte morta, e non per scherzo, non per pubblicare, come hai fatto tu, gli scritti postumi di uno scrittore vivente a Costantinopoli...'. Serra e' stato un letterato ed editore nativo di La Spezia. La sua fama e' dovuta all'amicizia con il giovane Ungaretti, incontrato nelle trincee del Carso nel 1916. Di questi  raccolse le poesie scritte in trincea  per pubblicarle a Udine in 80 copie con il titolo Il porto sepolto, opera ristampata sempre dal Serra nel 1923 a La Spezia ITA

      Dikter. Bonniers 1929. Originalupplaga. Debut. 74 s. Trådhäftad. Med författarens dedikation till Sara Bohlin i överkant på omslaget "Till Sara Bohlin med handslag från Harry Martinson". Med mottagarens namnteckning på smutstitelbladet. Lätt stött vid ryggens huvud. 21,5 x 16,5 cm. Se Mats Rehnström katalog 62 nr 28: "Sara Bohlin (1883-1956) var själv poet och gav ut tre diktsamlingar. Hennes debut hade kommit 1927 och mötts av välvillig kritik. Efter att i mitten av tjugotalet ha lämnat sin anställning på grund av en olycklig kärlekshistoria med en medarbetare, försörjde sig Sara Bohlin ett tag som dammsugarförsäljare. Ingeborg Björklund berättar i en minnesteckning i Vi 1957: 'Då hon fått åtta bestämda löften från hugade spekulanter får hon fyra kronor, d.v.s. hon får 50 öre för varje 200-kronors dammsugare. Så kan bara kvinnlig arbetskraft utnyttjas. [...] Hon sjönk djupare ned i elände, blev utarbetad, undernärd, sjuk. Då kom hon i kontakt med Elin Wägner och Tidevarvet. Hon fick ett stipendium till Fogelstadsskolan. På Elisabeth Thams gård tillbringade hon fyra månader, som kanske var hennes lyckligaste. Hon kom i kontakt med intellektuella kvinnor, som ville något. Hon behandlades med vänlighet och aktning. Rum delade hon med en robust, humoristisk men en smula härsklysten änka, Helga Johansson, som brevväxlade med en fjorton år yngre sjöman, Harry Martinson. De gifte sig sedermera och Helga blev Moa.'"

        Enduring the Truth, original holograph manuscript of his review of Walter Lippmann's A Preface to Morals

      A fine, closely written, authorial manuscript of Santayana's review of Lippmann's A Preface to Morals (1929) appearing in the New Adelphi, 3, 1929-30, and in the Saturday Review on December 7, 1929. With a single word variant in the first paragraph where Santayana's MS gives "perceived" rather than "conceived" in the printed version: "Very few would give up living as they live, simply because they had conceived, in some lucid moment, that it wasn't worth while." While Lippmann is considered one of the fathers of the modern study of public opinion, the influence Santayana had in the shaping of Lippmann's ideas is often overlooked. The influence Santayana had on Lippmann was evident from their very first meeting in 1907, when the latter enrolled in a Greek philosophy course taught by Santayana. That same year Lippmann read Santayana's Life of Reason. The second volume of this 5 volume work lays out Santayana's ideas on good government, notions that coincide with the later thinking of the mature Lippmann. Santayana's influence led Lippmann to study philosophy after abandoning art history which had originally brought Lippmann to Harvard. During his remaining years in Cambridge Lippmann took all of the philosophy courses offered by Santayana. During this period there existed a mutual fascination between the two. In 1910 Santayana nominated Lippmann as assistant professor in philosophy, a position given up by Lippmann only one year later. In 1929, John Middleton Murry, editor of the New Adelphi, asked Santayana for a critique of Lippmann's A Preface to Morals, claiming that it would be of interest to read Santayana's opinion of his disciple's work. - César García, "Walter Lippmann and George Santayana: A Shared Vision of Society and Public Opinion." (The Journal of American Culture, 29:2, 2006), pp.183-185. In his September 17 reply to Murry, Santayana writes of Lippmann: "I hardly think of Lippmann as a disciple of mine, but he was once my pupil, and I saw him again last winter in Rome. If you will send me his Preface to Morals, I shall certainly read it with interest; and if nothing should occur to me worth saying about it, I think I can promise to send you something else instead." - Holzberger, William H., ed. The Letters of George Santayana, Fourth Book: 1928-1932, (Cambridge, MA: MIT Press, 2002), p.130. Santayana completed his review by October of 1929: "Here is somebody [Lippmann] who confidently believes that mankind can endure the truth; and mankind seems to be gallantly confirming his good opinion, since we are told that his book is selling in America by the hundred thousand. This success is not due to scandal: nothing could be more respectful, more scrupulous, more modest than Mr Lippmann's sincerity. But he tells us that religion is decayed, and that the whole system of morals founded on religion has lost its authority." "It would be interesting to hear what he [Lippmann] foresees will be the ruling passions, favourite pleasures, and dominant beliefs of mankind, when the hitherto adventurous, selfish human animal has become thoroughly socialized, mechanized, hygienic, and irreligious. In this book we learn little of this..." Further in his review, Santayana writes: "Producers produce, inventors invent, advertizers advertize, the public is coaxed when it is not stampeded, new needs are created, luxury spreads, phrases, ideas, and enthusiasms sweep over the well-rooted but pliable nation like summer winds over a field of corn. Everybody pushes, and everybody yields to pressure; but as the pushed is one and those pushing him are many millions, his ultimate movement is in God's hands rather than in his own. Now this predicament, with which most people put up good-naturedly so long as, on the whole, they are prosperous, seems to Mr Lippmann most favourable to 'high religion'. It involves a continual surrender of childish wishes and arbitrary ideas." "Human nature in the individual is accordingly autonomous. It may find or establish points or support outside, in material forces or in what we call the arts: society, science and cooperative industry may supply special fields or special instruments for the exercise of human faculty and since human nature is variable and subject to education, these ambient influences may modify the character of certain men.... But the appeal of these new sanctities must still be to the individual heart. If pure science or social equilibrium or the blind multiplication, complication, and acceleration of business took the bit in their teeth, and imposed themselves on the human soul otherwise than in its own interest, they would be nothing but insufferable pests and new embodiments of Moloch." Santayana concludes: "The virility and chivalry of virtue lie precisely in being inflexibly true to oneself... I commend this reflection to those who feel safe in their ethics and politics if they think they are swimming with the tide - a form of cowardice peculiarly modern and peculiarly short-sighted. Tides will turn, and even at the flood they are not the foundation of the human good, nor the criterion of it. The foundation, like the criterion, is in the heart." In a letter to Murry of October 5, Santayana writes: "Canby, the editor of the New York Saturday Review of Literature, whom you probably have heard of, and who is an old acquaintance of mine, has lately written asking for a contribution, and he expressly said that anything I wrote for him might be simultaneously published in England. If it were possible for you to send him, or to send me for him, an advanced proof or copy of this article, so that it might appear in New York at about the same time as in London, I should be glad of it...". - Holzberger, ibid, p.132. Santayana's review, "Enduring the Truth", appeared in Murry's New Adelphi in London and in the Saturday Review in the U.S. in December 1929 and is apparently unpublished in book-form. Lippmann's response, "A Footnote to Santayana", was printed in the very same issue of the Saturday Review. Santayana replied in a January 16, 1930 letter to Henry Seidel Canby (the Saturday Review's first editor). Santayana admits to feeling "... surprised at the tone of Lippmann's reply to my article. I thought he would be pleased, and certainly I had liked his book very much; but apparently he requires us all to share his vague hopes of 'high religious' worldly organization, and is angry if we are attached to some different political ideal." - Holzberger, ibid, p.158. According to García, "there is no evidence that the two men ever met again." - García, op. cit, p.185 Large 8vo, 10 pages, on unlined printed stationery, Villa Le Balze, Fiesole, written on versos only. Faint trace of old paper clip residue on the first and final leaves, folded once from mailing, otherwise the manuscript is in fine condition, in its original packaging as despatched to W.D. Richey of Bethany College by Charles Rare Books, Buntingford, Herts in 1958.

        The Middle Parts of Fortune: Somme and Ancre, 1916.

      London: The Piazza Press, issued to subscribers by Peter Davies, 1929.. LIMITED FIRST EDITION. In Two Volumes. Octavo. pp. viii, 226 [4]; 227-453. No. 167 of 520 copies printed on handmade paper. Bound in brown cloth lettered and ruled in gilt to back-strip, with marbled endpapers and top edge gilt. Largely unopened, with fragments of the original glassine jacket with paper flaps (all flaps present), housed in the publisher's burgundy slip-case with thumbhole access. Books are very fine, case with some light rubbing and one bump to corner. This is the original text of the novel which became widely known as 'Her Privates We' when published under that title the following year; various 'prunings and excisions' were made to the trade edition as the bluntness of language was thought to make the book unfit for public distribution. T.E. Lawrence commented "No praise could be too sheer for this book".

        Lengthy and historically important Autographed Letter Signed to his editor on personal letterhead

      Daytona Beach, 1929. unbound. 8 pages (front and back), 11 x 8.5 inches, Dayton Beach, August 5, 1929, apologizing for not sending her the manuscript for "African Drums," as Farrar & Rinehart had decided to publish it, and then writing seven and a half additional pages to refute socialite Anne Campbell's accounts of Captain Thomas Horn's "historical" book explorations in Africa, in small part: "...Mrs. Campbell says she knew Captain Horn. Well I think she has him mixed with some other man for she says he was with Hattan & Cooksman 10 years before she reached Africa. I wonder why Horn does not mention Mrs. Campbell in his book? The reason is because he did not know her. Mrs. Campbell says she only finds one error in his book, the one where he accuses Livingston of having black mistresses. It's a puzzle to me why they bug poor Livingston -- they do not seem to realize that Livingston died in 1873, eight years before Campbell reached Africa and that Mary, his wife, died nearly 20 years before. Lots of time for a little scandal to die down yet her letter gives you the idea it was current scandal, whereas, there never was the slightest scandal until Horn started it. Then, if that is the only error, such ridiculous stuff as Horn shipping pickled gorillas to President Grant -- pickled apes, peacocks, etc. to London, his charting of a river as the Admiral of a Cannibal fleet, exploring more of Africa than Stanley is all true...[She] cannot find something more important than me saying that Horn did not rescue Cecil Rhodes. Cecil Rhodes was never rescued by Horn from a crocodile; the facts neither Mrs. Campbell nor Mr. Lewis know what they are talking about." On the subject of rescuing Nina from Peru from the Cannibals, Puleston writes: "If Nina went to Peru then she never returned, but if she did return...she must have returned by the next steamer for Horn did not rescue her until 1884 and Campbell left Africa in 1887 -- too short an interval. Mrs. Campbell conveys to me the impression they knew Nina in Gabon. Well -- if she did, then Nina was never a captive up the Ogrove by Cannibals, for she could not be in five places at one time. If Nina was a product of Gabon then she spoke English and French and yet Horn says she and he made signs to each other. I think Mrs. Campbell is terribly mixed -- probably she is thinking of some good looking octoroon who had been educated at the mission station for Horn's Nina was simply a savage...I did not make the slightest criticism of the book -- but -- when he publicly accused Stanley of killing his men and took to himself the credit of exploring more of Africa than Stanley then I along with Viztetley of the Literary Digest -- got busy...You may be surprised to learn that Stanley was quite snobbish but Stanley's life was so horribly horribly hard (starvation, fighting, sickness, intrigue and all kinds of difficulties) that he lost it all. When you read my manuscript -- you will say like I do 'if you know Africa, the literal truth is interesting and thrilling enough'." This small portion of a most remarkable letter was written when Puleston was the last surviving member of Stanley%u2019s famous expedition. Except for signed books, Puleston is exceedingly rare in letters concerning Africa. Boldly signed twice, natural folds plus a few creases, some portions underlined in pencil; very good(-) condition. English-born adventurer and explorer who left home at 17 and went to Africa as an agent for Hattan & Cooksman. Soon thereafter he became well acquainted with Sir Henry Morton Stanley, becoming a member of the latter's last expedition into the interior, before becoming British consul to the Congo at the age of 25. He later traveled to the United States where he became an accomplished physician/surgeon and the head of the Puleston Sanitarium. In 1930 he released a bestselling book titled "African Drums.
