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 Loose sheets. Custom red half morocco clamshell box 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 Models for Connett's edition of 21 copies with hand colored plates.

        Mnoho noci

      Prague: Aventinum 1929 - (Many Nights) Large octavo 21x14.8 cm., wrappers, 72pp. With drawings by Josef Šima, title by Jan Zrzavý, 1000 numbered copies (this #175). Known as „odd man out“ of the Czech literary world, who influenced and was influenced by Kafka, Weiner (1884-1937) still remains unknown outside of Czech readers. His poetry absorbed the influence of Vildrac and Duhamel and became increasingly surrealist by this date; he was close to René Daumal and Le Grand Jeu during his extended stay in Paris. His prose and novels are treasures awaiting discovery by a larger, global readership. This is a fine bibliophile production, containing Weiner‘s most important verse and abstract surrealist drawings by Weiner’s close friend Josef Šima. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        BUFFALO HUNTING ON THE TEXAS PLAINS IN 1877

      Privately printed by the author, 1929., Geneseo, Illinois - First edition. 7 3/4" x 3 5/8" stiff, salmon colored wrappers with decoration and titles printed in black, 35 [1] pp., frontispiece (picture of Martin Hornecker), publisher's note. Eberstadt, Texas 162:400: “Vivid narrative of two years’ experiences in west Texas and on the edge of the Staked Plains.” Howes H645. Tate, Indians of Texas 3138: “Good straightforward description of hunters working out of Ft. Griffin during the heyday of the hide trade.” Hornecker (born 1852, Baden, South Germany) and his family emigrated to Illinois when “even Illinois was still known as ‘the west’ to all who lived east of the Hoosier state and to them, Texas was beyond the pale of civilization. Little did Hornecker and [his companion Ed] Stewart dream when they left Colona township that they would spend nearly two years hunting buffalo, 200 miles beyond the government outposts, where the Indians roved in great numbers and did what they pleased and where there was nothing to do but die if a rattler or a centipede got you. Martin Hornecker is one of the few men now living, belonging to that vanguard of hardy courageous men who faced the rigors of a life on the wild, open plains of the West to prepare it for the approach of civilization, and helped to decimate the uncountable herd of buffalo to make way for the cattle men and their droves of cattle. Just as it was necessary for the Indians to move toward the setting sun as the white man moved westward, so the buffalo had to be driven from the plains to make room for the white man’s cattle.” The author and his buddy had planned to get a job as “cow punchers” on one of the big cattle ranches in Texas, having heard they paid big wages, but the ranches were much farther west. They walked 120 miles in four days and discovered that the ranchers wanted only men with experience and under 130 pounds. Working in a stone quarry in 90-degree weather quickly inspired them to return to Ft. Worth and take up buffalo hunting. While buffalo hunting on the Staked Plains with his powerful single-shot forty-five caliber Creedmore breech loaders, Hornecker learned of a cattleman named Tasker who started a cattle ranch in the area and learned that the cattle and buffalo could not graze on the same ranch because the buffalo always stampeded the cattle and trampled them to death. Hornecker’s reaction to Texas includes: “We thought Ft. Worth, when we first saw it, was the worst city in the United States, but its wildness was no comparison to that of Ft. Griffin.” Of the ladies of Ft. Griffin, Hornecker opines: “The women looked hard and were even harder than they looked.” Fine, bright, unused copy of an item considered rare today.

        Industrie formt Menschen. Versuch einer Normierung der Industriepädagogik

      Einsiedeln / Waldshut / Köln am Rhein / Straßburg, Verlagsanstalt Benziger&Co A.-G., 1929. Vollständige Ausgabe in aufwendigem Handeinband der Zeit (rotbraunes Maroquin-Ganzleder / GLdr gr.8vo im Format 16 x 23,5 cm) mit Rückentitel in Goldprägung und goldgeprägter Liniendekoration des gesamten Einbands, Kopfgoldschnitt, Steh- und Innenkantenvergoldung der Deckel, handgestochenem Kopfband und Lederhäubchen, 276 Seiten. - \"Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Zum Kapital wird kein schlappes maschinengewebtes Bändchen verwendet, sondern das Kapital wird von Hand mit dem Buchblock umstochen, gibt dadurch dem Rücken einen festen Abschluß und bietet zugleich dem späteren Ledereinschlag (\"Häubchen\") die Unterlage. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können.\" Aus einem alten Prospekt von Richard Hönn, ehemals Handbinderei des Verlages Albert Langen, Werkstatt für feine Buchbinder- und Lederarbeiten in München, Dienerstrasse 14.Erstausgabe, EA, erste Auflage in sehr guter Erhaltung (Vorsätze minimal stockfleckig, sonst gut). - Eindrucksvoller Luxuseinband/Meistereinband des Art Deco.

        The World Crisis: The Aftermath, 1918-1928, review copy of the first U.S. edition

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1929 - This is a jacketed publisher’s review copy of the first edition, first printing of the fifth book of The World Crisis, Churchill's acclaimed history of the First World War. Jacketed first editions are quite scarce. This copy would be notable for condition alone – near fine in a very good dust jacket. What makes this copy exceptional is discovery of the original publisher’s review slip laid in at the front pastedown. The 5 x 3.25 inch review slip is printed dark brown on ivory stock in eight lines below a decorative device: "TO THE LITERARY EDITOR | We take pleasure in presenting this book for editorial | use with the request that in notices or reviews attention | be called to the price. A clipping of such notices or | reviews will be greatly appreciated by | Charles Scribner’s Sons | 597 Fifth Avenue, New York" A "Date of Publication" line is left blank but in the "Price" line is hand-written "5.00". This is the first review copy of this volume we have encountered. Any prospective collector will hopefully forgive the intended reviewer for the fact that this copy apparently went unread. The russet cloth binding remains square and tight with perfect, unfaded color and vivid gilt, consonant with its protection beneath an original dust jacket. We note only slight wrinkling at the spine head, a few small bumps to the upper and lower edges of the rear cover, and light wear to the corners. The contents retain a crisp feel with no spotting. The page edges show only modest age-toning and light dust soiling to the top edge. The sole previous ownership mark is an inked gift inscription on the front free endpaper dated "1929". The dust jacket is substantially complete and retains the original $5.00 front flap price. We note minor chipping to the spine ends and corners and a 2.5 inch closed tear to the upper rear hinge. The jacket faces are clean. The spine shows moderate, uniform toning and faint moisture staining to the upper spine at the title. The dust jacket is protected beneath a removable, archival quality clear cover. This fifth volume of The World Crisis deals with the postwar years 1918 to 1928. Churchill was in a special position to write this history, having served both in the Cabinet and on the Front. First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 until 1915, after the failure in the Dardanelles and the slaughter at Gallipoli, Churchill was scapegoated and forced to resign. He spent political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Before war's end, Churchill was exonerated and rejoined the Government, but the stigma would linger. Churchill may have meant for his history of the First World War to clear his name, but his six volume masterwork far exceeds this purpose. The U.S. is the true first edition, as U.S. Volume I publication preceded the British. Both the U.S. and British editions were originally published as six individual books between 1923 and 1931. Today, jacketed first editions are quite scarce - jacketed U.S. editions even more so than their British counterparts.

        Sammlung von mehr als 500 Original-Photographien eines Chefstewards auf verschiedenen Luxuslinern auf den Transatlantiklinien der United States Lines. Verschiedene Orte bzw. Schiffe, 1930er bis 1960er Jahre.

      1929. 6 Lederalben (qu.-folio) und lose Photographien (verschiedene Formate). Private Photosammlung des Schiffsstewards Hermann Muller, der zwischen den 1930er und 1960er Jahren - der Hochzeit der Luxusschiffahrt - auf den Passagierdampfern der Reederei United States Lines im Bordservice gearbeitet hatte und bis zum Chefsteward aufgestiegen war. - Die aus einer Postschiffahrtsgesellschaft hervorgegangene amerikanische Reederei United States Lines betrieb von 1929 bis 1969 eine Transatlantiklinie (New York-Bremerhaven und New York-London) für Luxus-Passagierdampfer, die tlw. mit ehemals deutschen, als Reparationszahlungen übernommenen Passagierschiffen (America, George Washington), später mit eigens für die Reederei gebauten Dampfern befahren wurde. Der berühmteste Dampfer des Unternehmens war die United States, das Flaggschiff der Reederei, die auf ihrer Jungfernfahrt 1952 (unter Kapitan H. Manning) das "Blaue Band" errungen hatte. Sie hält bis heute den Rekord für die schnellste Atlantikquerung eines Passagierschiffes in östlicher Richtung. - Hermann Muller fuhr unter anderem auf den Schiffen America, President Roosevelt, Leviathan, Manhattan, Washington und eben auch der United States. Als Chefsteward hatte er die Verantwortung für Küche, Vorratshaltung und Reinigung des Schiffs. Mullers große Umsicht und Einsatzbereitschaft für das persönliche Wohl der teils prominenten Passagiere sowie ein offensichtlich sympathisches Wesen machten ihn zum ersten Ansprechpartner und beliebten Mitglied der Bordcrew, wie zahlreiche herzliche und persönliche Widmungen auf den Photographien wie "Wishing you as always a Happy sailing thru life" bezeugen. Die Photographien (Formate zwischen 7 und 12 und 20 und 26 cm) stammen überwiegend von den Bordphotographen der Linie oder von privat und zeigen neben den Passagieren auch die Crew und das Küchenpersonal, Banketts, Silvester- und Geburtstagsfeiern, Bordhochzeiten, Seebestattung, seltene Details oder auch Gesamtaufnahmen der Passagierdampfer; daneben finden sich auch Familienphotos aus dem Privatleben von H. Muller. - Unter den Passagieren, die sich mit Photo und einigen Grußworten in der Sammlung verewigten, befinden sich viele berühmte Namen der funkelnden Welt des Films und des Jet Sets, des Sports und der Politik, darunter John Wayne, Burt Lancaster, Charlton Heston, Cary Grant, Bob Hope, Horst Buchholz, Edward Duke of Windsor mit seiner Frau Wallis Simpson, Harold Lloyd, Walt Disney, Charles Boyer, Donald Campbell, die Boxer Walter Neusel, Bob Olin und Erich Seelig, Dean Jagger, Joan Crawford, Cornel Wilde, Jean Wallace, James Cagney, den Bürgermeister von London Cuthbert Ackroyd, Corinne Calvet, Herbert Marshall, Salvador Dali, Harry Truman, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Haile Selassie, Ludwig Erhard, Felix Graf von Luckner, Saud ibn Abd al-Aziz Al Saud u. v. m. - Photogr. tlw. gelöst, einzelne mit Randeinrissen, die Alben gering berieben. Insgesamt eine interessante und umfangreiche Sammlung von sehr guter Erhaltung.

      1929. Small 4to. 2 pp. In Russian, to his third wife, Natalya, on meetings with commissioners for foreign trade, an official trip, etc. "[...] I'm dreadfully tired, wandering through the storeys like a travelling salesman, visiting all companies there, hurrying from one manager to the other; I just finished my work at the Tretyakova yesterday, on the 20th. Then I went to Nemchinovka, but only for a while, but at least Klyun was there, and so we went to Barvikha. Unochka scolded me for being away from home so often, but it took me a whole week only to get the porcelain thing settled. My meetings and appointments with various officials from the People's Commissariat for Foreign Trade as well as myself make a huge impression. I even imagined myself the lying stone under which no water flows, and when this stone rose the water began to swirl and to bubble. But by now, everything is set up. And everything seems to be quite well now, but let us see. The People's Commissariat for Foreign Trade promptly sent a note to the Leningrad porcelain factory telling them to enter negotiations with me at once, also to the Silicate Trest and the Wallpaper Trest etc. What with all this bustle, Suyetin and I will have so much to do that I can't tell how we shall stand it. It has already come so far that Exports is going to send me on a business trip abroad. Today (Wednesday) I'm giving my lecture to the assistants, all of Thursday I will spend with Unochka, and on Friday I'm going to buy the ticket, though I do not know for which day they'll give me one. I long for you and fear that this longing will prevent me from bringing the whole thing to an end. I expect to leave on Sunday [...]" (transl.). Published in: Malewitsch über sich.

The edition was the first publication of one of Stein's works in translation. From the collection of Myrtille Hugnet, acquired upon the sale of Tristan Tzara's collection.Georges Hugnet, French poet and critic, was born in Paris in 1906. A man of many talents, he dabbled in a variety of artistic pursuits including poetry, editing, publishing, translating, film and play writing, acting, rare book collecting, and book binding design throughout his life. His many artistic friends included Joan Miró, Marcel Duchamp, Pablo Picasso, Tristan Tzara, Man Ray, and Jean Cocteau. With financial backing from his father, a furniture manufacturer, Hugnet established the publishing company Les Editions de la Montagne with the intent of publishing his own works and the work of his close friends including Tristan Tzara, Pierre de Massot, and Gertrude Stein. It was Virgil Thomson who introduced Gertrude Stein and Hugnet in 1926. Stein and Hugnet had a short-lived but intense relationship, lasting until 1930.

Ich sehe keine vernünftige Hoffnung mehr - bleibt das Wunder welches auch schließlich auch immer noch sich als vertrauenswürdig erwiesen hat zum Ende.
