        The Red Letter New Testament: Translated out of the Original Greek; and with the former Translations diligently Compared and Revised, by His Majesty's Special Command

      London & New York: Collins' Clear-Type Press, n.d. (1929?). Very good antiquarian condition. 358, [2] p. (last 2 pages blank). Illustrated throughout with color illustrations. Bound in original quarter brown morocco, wooden boards with an overlay of approximately 100 pieces of mother-of-pearl arranged ornamentally: central panel enclosing a five-pointed star on upper cover, on lower the Jerusalem Cross. One piece of mother-of-pearl lost from the upper corner of lower board, another slightly damaged on front cover. An extremely elaborate mother-of-pearl binding on the "Red Letter Testament," possibly bound in Jerusalem. For no apparent reason, the foot of the spine is stamped "Jerusalem," the upper cover bears the Star of David, and the lower cover bears the ornamental design of the Jerusalem Cross. These clues suggest that the volume was bound in Jerusalem, not London or New York. Certainly it is unlikely that a London or New York binder would have utilized wooden boards. A brilliant specimen.

        Photo album of New York's "Roaring Twenties". New York, 1928-1929.

      1929. 175 b/w prints, mainly c. 83 x 57 mm. Mounted on black cardboard in oblong folio (335 x 250 mm) leather album. Marbled endpapers. Fine collection of travel snapshots, taken between summer 1928 and summer 1929, showing off New York during the last months of the Roaring Twenties, not long before the Crash of October 1929. Meticulously captioned in Swedish, the series begins with an atmospheric early-morning view of New York harbour as seen from the deck of the "Kungsholm". This is followed by photos of the New York skyline, steamers on the Hudson, bathing scenes in Central Park, the newly-built Kensico Dam near White Plains, various street scenes (showing streetcars, city-buses, the elevated Manhattan Railway, Manhattan Bridge, advertisements, motorcars, pedestrians on 5th Avenue, etc.), views of architecture and shots taken from skyscrapers, Columbia University, and Long Island. The photos include portraits not only of the travellers, but also of the hotel personnel, people bathing in Atlantic City, and a black nanny. Events captured in snapshots include a Belmont Park horse race on May 25, 1929, and the funeral parade held on July 18, 1928, in honour of the crashed pilot Emilio Carranza (the "Mexican Lindbergh"). Gustaf Schult, the principal photographer of the series (and occasionally depicted therein), was a member of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce. - Includes four issues of the on-board journal of the TS Drottningholm published for the Göteborg-New York journey (June 12-18, 1928) as well as the passenger list of the MS Kungsholm during Schult's return from New York to Göteborg in June 1929.

        Eigenh. Manuskript (Fragment). O. O. u. D.

      1929. 2 SS. auf 2 Bll. Gr.-4to. Der Schlussabsatz seines zuerst 1929 erschienenen Aufsatzes "Die Angst des Ingenieurs" in einer neuen Fassung für den Sammelband "Verfremdungen I" (Frankfurt a. M., 1962); mehrere Zeilen vom Druck abweichend und mit zahlreichen Korrekturen. - "6. Soviel hier über einen merkwürdigen Fall von heute, erst recht von morgen. Über die Angst eines Ingenieurs und was sie ohne jede Überlastung mehrfach bedeuten mag. Armselig wäre es, wollte man sie mit irgend etwas Spukhaftem oder sogenannt Okkultem in Bezug [...] setzen. Steinerisches ist nichts dabei [...] Abgelehnt wurde ebenso, daß darin Kapital für den Okkultismus der besseren Herren sei, nämlich für den 'Untergang der Erde am Geist' oder für den 'Geist als Widersacher der Seele'. Der Ingenieur mag, obwohl politisch ein Sozialist, von dem modischen Klages und seinem 'Kosmogonischen Eros' vernommen haben, doch sein Chok war naiv [...] nicht reaktionär [...]". - Beiliegend 2 Typoskripte: eine vollständige Abschrift dieses Textes mit Korrekturen von fremder Hand (Satzvorlage, 1 S., gr.-4to) sowie eine verworfene Kurzfassung (¼ S., gr.-4to) mit einem eh. Vermerk von Ernst Bloch "weiter auf gleicher Seite [...]" (auf der Rückseite eine (irrige) Notiz von fremder Hand "Nicht in 'Verfremdungen I'!").

        Autograph letter signed ("Moritz"). Vienna, 7. I. 1929.

      1929. Large 8vo. 5 pp. Important letter to his friend, the actress Gerda Tardel: "[...] I am again severely burdened with unpleasant tasks, especially scientific correspondence and reading dissertations, and I am thereby hampered in developing my own thoughts. But that makes no difference: I do manage to finish the really important things, and the more I encounter the true brilliance of genius, the less importance I attach to the normal professorial productions. In the meantime, a long-planned project, a series which I would like to edit and which I hope will achieve nothing less than a revolutionary reform of philosophy, is getting under way [...]". - Together with Philipp Frankl, Schlick was soon to introduce the "Schriften zur wissenschaftlichen Weltauffassung", which he would go on to edit until his death.

Comprising 35 [of 68] engraved plates, proofs after letters, after the original paintings by Stubbs, Herring, Hall, Sartorius, and others, colored by hand, most marked "Approved WW" in ink or pencil in margins, with occasional notes to the colorists. 1 vols. 7 x 10 inches. Loose sheets. Custom red half morocco clamshell box. Models for Connett's edition of 21 copies with hand colored plates.

Colorists' Models for the rare colored issue of 'Cherished Portraits'. "This was Connett's first major work in fine book production. It was contracted through Ernest Gee, and Mr. Woodward spared no expense ..." (Siegel, p. 52). The idea had come to Mr. Woodward, whose Belair Stables bred some of the greatest racehorses of the 1920s and 1930s, to do a book about the portraits he owned after listening to Mr. Vosburgh regale him with stories about them one Sunday afternoon. The portraits include Stubbs' 'Godolphin Arabian' and a vast stable of paintings by Herring Senior, racing scenes, and other works. "The twenty-one copy edition of Cherished Portraits of Thoroughbred Horses is one of the rarest works of its kind in America. ... It was Connett's most amibitious project, and if produced today would easily cost several thousand dollars per copy" (Siegel, p. 174).Unique survival of the production process for one of the great American sporting books of the interwar years, and a testament to Woodward's close involvement with the book. For published book: Podeschi 373; Siegel 22; Frazier V-4-D; Decade p. 67. Provenance: Eugene V. Connett, 3d; Don Frazier

She was a prominent figure at the Imperial courts in Germany and Russia. To the preface Radziwill writes 'This is neither an apology nor an indictment of the last Empress of Russia. . . it is impossible not to defend her from baseless accusations which have been held at her head, yet it is equally out of the question to absolve her from a very large share of responsibility in regard to the terrible collapse of Russia. ' This is the first edition of this text. Illustrated, with eight photographic plates of Alexandra, her family and her acquaintances. Radziwillpenned many texts regarding the fall of the Russian empire andthe revolution such as Russia's Decline and Fall: The Secret History of a Great Debacle andSecrets of a Dethroned Royalty .
