        The Winding Stair.

      New York: The Fountain Press,, 1929. Octavo. Original blue cloth, gilt lettered spine, red morocco labels, gilt floral borders on sides, top edges gilt, text printed on green paper, edges untrimmed. Bookplate of M. O'Gorman Munkhouse to front pastedown. Some minor fading to cloth, internally fresh. An excellent copy. First published edition, first printing, one of 12 copies printed on green paper. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "Inscribed for James A. Healy, in memory of that particular Irishman & our friend Richard Campbell. W. B. Yeats." The recipient, James Augustine Healy (1890-1975) was an Irish-American stockbroker, bibliophile, and patron of Irish writers, who had an extensive correspondence with Elizabeth C. Yeats and George Yeats, from whom he obtained all the Dun Emer and Cuala Press books. Judge Richard Campbell, to whom Yeats refers in the inscription, was an Irish-born American lawyer, who assisted in forming a syndicate of Americans to re-establish the Irish Statesman. This is number 72 of 642 copies signed by the author on the half-title; this particular copy is cited by Wade in the second edition of his bibliography. However, Wade is seemingly unaware of the bibliographical background of this edition: it was in fact initially intended for publication under Crosby Gaige's imprint. The aborted issue consisted of 712 copies, of which 12 were printed on green paper, and 650 were for sale. The project was taken over when Gaige sold the publishing house in December 1928 to his business partner James Wells, who changed the firm's name to Fountain Press. The edition was thus published under The Fountain Press imprint with a redesigned title page and colophon in a limited issue of 642 copies. The 12 copies on green paper were incorporated into the rest of the limitation, hence why, most unusually for a bibliographically distinct issue, they were numbered randomly in the sequence.

      Munich: Kurt Wolff, 1929. First edition. Sander, August. 4to., (18) pp., with 60 full-page b&w plates after photos. Publisher's yellow cloth over flexible boards. The cloth is moderately soiled, with foxing along the outer edges of the text block and lightly on the blank first and last leaves. This copy was presented as a gift in 1929 in a neat hand on the blank leaf proceeding the title page. Internally bright, this is a very good copy. Sanders conceived of a mammoth photographic project to photograph people of every class of society "archetypes of the modern era." His first presentation of this project was in this book ANTLITZ DER ZEIT. The Nazi regime suppressed this project because it reflected "undesirables." After the Nazi era, Sander continued this project until his death.

        The Love Parade [Parade d'amour] (Original photograph of the US premiere of the film in New York, 1929)

      N.p.: Cliff Leary, 1929. Vintage single weight sepia photograph of the world premiere of the landmark 1929 film, at the legendary Criterion Theatre in New York. Shot by photographer Cliff Leary, with his stamp on the verso, as well as a numeric reference number (6434), and the stamp of a Scandanavian press agency (Københavnerinden). A huge hit for Paramount in 1929, a comforting fact for the studio given that it was released just after the Wall Street crash. The great Ernst Lubitsch's first talking film, the film debut of Jeanette MacDonald, the American debut of Maurice Chevalier. Too "The Love Parade" is considered by many to be the first musical film in which songs were integrated with story, and the first to make innovative first use of music with no image at the end of the film. Finally, a wonderful example of the kinds of magnificent physical artwork that would routinely go into major premieres at the beginning of the talking era. 8 x 10 inches (20 x 25 cm). In an archival mat. Very Good, with faint creasing and light wear at the corners.

        Von Heute auf Morgen (Oper in einem Akt von Max Blonda; Musik Arnold Schönberg; Klavierauszug (= Op. 32 hier nicht genannt) 1. Ausgabe, Äußerst selten, in keiner Bibliothek weltweit von mir nachweisbar

      Berlin-Charlottenburg, Nussbaum-Allee 17, Im Selbstverlag des Komponisten, 1929. 149 S. Noten Folio. Gebunden in Halbleinen, bis auf wenige zarte Bleistiftanmerkungen sehr gutes Ex., vorne eingeklebt ein Blatt mit der Abb. des Bühnenbildes v. 1930; BEILIEGT: 1 Blatt mit Text v. Theodor Wiesengrund-Adorno zur Uraufführung aus \"Die Musik, XXII/6 März 1930\" Max Blonda (d.i. das Pseudonym von Gertrud Schönberg, geb. Kolisch (1898-1967) ////////// In den Jahren 1928 bis 1929 stellte Arnold Schönberg die Komposition seiner einaktigen Oper \"Von heute auf morgen\" op. 32 musikalisch fertig. Das wahrscheinlich früheste Manuskript des Librettos ist auf den 21. Oktober 1928 datiert und stammt von Arnold Schönberg selbst, der jedoch lediglich auf anderthalb Seiten das Thema für die Oper skizziert hatte. Auf dem Titelblatt wurde dann später der Name \"Max Blonda\" als Textautor vermerkt. Nach dem Krieg gab man jedoch bekannt, dass Gertrud Schönberg die eigentliche Verfasserin des Librettos gewesen und der Text für die Komische Oper lediglich unter dem Pseudonym \"Max Blonda\" (\"große Blonde\"?; vgl. Grun 2006, S. 551) veröffentlicht worden war. Leider ist von dem Libretto keine Niederschrift oder Typoskript von Gertrud Schönberg erhalten (vgl. GA, Bd. 7B, Teil 1, S. 12f.) //////////// Schönbergs Kritik der Gattung Zeitoper manifestiert sich in erster Linie in der Anwendung seiner nun ausgereiften Zwölftonmethode unter Einbeziehung der am häufigsten verwendeten musikalischen Stilelemente des Genres: Imitation amerikanischer Tanzmusik und Jazz. Schönberg war offensichtlich davon überzeugt, daß die nunmehr ausgefeilte Zwölftonmethode flexibel genug sei, um in einer aktuellen komischen Oper Anwendung finden zu können. Für Schönberg stellte die Zwölftonmethode kompositorisch eine Art Schlüssel zur Zukunft dar, und in »Von heute auf morgen« versuchte er zu beweisen, dass dieser Schlüssel keinen Widerspruch zu populärem Erfolg darstellen musste. Die Aufführungen an der Frankfurter Oper und über Rundfunk im Jahr 1930 sollten den Komponisten jedoch enttäuschen. Seine Hoffnungen auf populären Erfolg sollten sich nicht bewahrheiten. Etwa zwei Monate nach der Uraufführung verfasste Schönberg den Essay »Mein Publikum«, in dem er argumentiert, die Sachverständigen - vor allem Dirigenten, Ausführende und andere im Musikleben einflußreiche Personen - seien für den Mangel an Verständnis seiner Musik verantwortlich zu machen. (siehe Arnold Schönberg Center) ////// Von heute auf morgen (From Today to Tomorrow or From One Day to the Next) is a one act opera composed by Arnold Schoenberg, to a German libretto by \"Max Blonda,\" the pseudonym of Gertrud Schoenberg, the composer`s wife. It is the composer`s opus 32. The opera was composed at the end of 1928 (finished on the first day of 1929), and was premiered in Frankfurt on 1 February 1930, with William Steinberg conducting Herbert Graf`s production. It was the first twelve-tone opera, and Schoenberg`s only comedy. Versand D: 5,00 EUR

      Linards Laicens (Latvju Kultura), Riga 1929 - With several photographic illustrations and reproductions (one by Georg Grosz). First edition. Printed in 1300 copies. In publisher's, constructivist cover. Printed in red and black. 47, (1) p. "Kreis? fronte" was the first substantial leftist Latvian-language journal with international aspirations.

Only 17 issues were published between 1928 and 1930 (the last one was double), when it was banned by the authorities, and Laicens launched his new magazine the "Trib?ne". The content of "Kreis? fronte" was more cultural than political, contained avant-garde literary elements as well as photographic artwork. The editor, Linards (Petrovich) Laicens (1883-1938) was a Latvian Expressionist writer and poet, active in politics as a member of Communist party. He was the editor or the leftist Avant-garde journals "Kreis? Fronte" and "Trib?ne". [Fraser: pp. 125-126.]. Ownership inscription of title page in ink at upper right edge.

        THE FAIRY CARAVAN

      Philadelphia: David McKay Company, 1929 225 pages + 6 color plates. Limited edition: #2 of 100 copies SIGNED by Beatrix Potter. In this instance, the limited edition really was NOT for sale and was intended only as gifts from Potter. The provenance of our copy is excellent: it is from the collection of David McKay's great granddaughter and probably was given by Beatrix Potter to David McKay's son James. Although she intended to stop writing after the final Peter Rabbit book, Potter was persuaded by her American publisher Alexander McKay (James McKay's brother) to write this book aimed at an American audience. This first printing of the American edition preceded the British edition by 29 years. The book is clean and tight, with lightly toned pages; one 1/3" closed tear at the fore-edge of the front free endpaper. The color illustration pastedown on the front cover is clean and bright, but it does have some foxing and minor rubbing. A very nice copy of this scarce autographed collectible.. SIGNED. First Edition. Hardcover. Collectible-Very Good+/No Dust Jacket. Illus. by Beatrix Potter. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Green Cloth Covered Boards.

Wilson married his second wife, Margaret Canby, in Washington, DC at the home of Amen, then Assistant Attorney General of the United States. That marriage, of course, would end tragically with Margaret's death two years later after falling down stairs. Amen was the second husband of Marion Cleveland Dell, the daughter of former President Grover Cleveland. A scarce book to find signed, let alone with such a fine association.

The Colophon, subtitled A Book Collectors' Quarterly or A quarterly for booklovers, was a limited edition quarterly periodical begun late in 1929 and continuing in various guises until 1950. It was the brainchild of Elmer Adler, founder of Pynson Printers of New York City. Each issue would also include an original piece of graphic art, some signed by the artist, many produced by using etching, lithography, or engraving. The articles comment on a current or historical issue related to printing, publishing or art. Other articles were themselves intended to be an example of printing or a work of art. As each article or item was normally a short section produced by a different designer and printer, a typical issue included a range of styles, papers, and typography, often using unusual or experimental approaches not widely seen in longer or mainstream printed items.
