        Dodsworth

      Harcourt, Brace and Co, New York 1929 - 1st edition, and a scarce copy of it. 1st binding, one of the first 500 (900 also reported) in orange cloth, issued in late February 1929, preceding the 2nd binding in blue cloth (March) which was about a billion copies (Lewis isn't on Facebook or I'd ask him exactly how many were published, and by the way, the only reason to go on Facebook anymore, is to monitor which of your former classmates has the least attractive children). Fine in a near fine 1st issue dustjacket (no reviews on front flap), and at a kindly price, the combination that threatens all the right people. Though most copies in the orange 1st binding were issued without a jacket, the cloth on this one is so new looking as to lend credence to the idea that it always had a dustjacket on it, and the same value proportions apply, as does the customary warning: Do not buy this book without a dustjacket, or even with a jacket if the cloth shows any signs of not having always been covered by one from its day of publication. And that is a shrewd rule to follow for all 1st editions obtainable in a jacket (Book Code). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Byzantine Achievement. An Historical Perspective A.D. 330-1453

      1929 - Illustrations. First edition. 8vo., cloth. London, George Routledge. A presentation copy, inscribed on the front free endpaper 'Colin Davidson from Robert Byron'. Paddy Leigh Fermor wrote of both men, referring to Davidson first 'A delightful, civilized man I got to know years later. I'd met Robert Byron a year and a half before in a deafening, smoke-filled nearly pitch-dark night club - The Nest?, The Nuthouse?, Smokey Jo's? - where everyone was pretty tight'. Byron in his short life became probably the finest travel writer of his generation, his 'Road to Oxiana' often cited as the 20th century's greatest travel book. A passionate philhellene, he almost single-handedly rescued the study of Byzantium from its neglect by the Universities and dispelled theair of medieval superstition which prevailed until the publication of this book. Spine spotted, rubbed and soiled, nicked at the head, edges finger-marked. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Namas 13: romanas [House 13: a novel]

      Audros, Kaunas and Riga 1929 - Octavo (20.4 × 15 cm). Original pictorial wrappers by Niklavs Strunke; 64 pp. Very light wear to overlapping wrapper edge; very good. First edition of this novel by Lithuanian writer, poet, and translator Kazys Boruta (1905-1965), who was also a leftist political activist. In 1925 he was expelled from Kaunas University for his anti-governmental protest and in 1927 exiled from Lithuania, after which he settled in Riga for two years, where he collaborated with leading left-wing artists of the time. This title is thus a rare example of a Lithuanian-Latvian collaboration: the book was published in Kaunas and Riga, and printed in Riga. It is illustrated with a striking black and white cover design, including typographic layout on the back wrapper, by Niklavs Strunke (1894-1966), one of Latvia's most important artists of the avant-garde. A painter, graphic designer, and illustrator, Strunke studied at the Imperial Academy in St. Petersburg, Russia and trained with noted Russian artists such as Bilibin, Roerich, and Bakst. Beginning in the late 1910s, he helped implement Cubism in Latvian book and graphic design, as well as painting. A later design for Strunke, the drawing still shows the influence of cubist abstraction and the experimental lettering typical of his covers. Not in Fraser, Publishing and Book Design in Latvia, 1919-1940. Rare, with KVK and OCLC only showing the copies at NYPL and Kent State University. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      New York: The John Day Company,, 1929. Translated from the German by S. Guy Endore. Illustrated by Mahlon Blaine. Octavo. Original black cloth, spine lettered in gilt with red ornament, gilt, red and black illustration to front cover, pictorial endpapers, top edge red. With the dust jacket. Original illustration, frontispiece and 11 full-page black and white illustrations by Mahlon Blaine. Spine ends and top edge lightly bumped.

First edition in English, presentation copy, with an original signed illustration by Blaine in pencil and green pen to the second half-title, signed "for Dunninger Mahlon Blaine 1936", depicting a demon pulling a mandrake-like woman from a hat. The recipient Joseph Dunninger (1892–1975) was one of the foremost magicians and mentalists of the time, making this a fine association copy, given the book's occultist subject matter. The translator, S. Guy Endore, was the author of the 1933 novel The Werewolf in Paris, perhaps the most influential piece of werewolf fiction. The novel was originally published in Germany in 1911.

        The Sound and the Fury

      New York: Jonathan Cape and Harrison Smith, 1929 New York: Jonathan Cape and Harrison Smith, 1929. First edition, first printing. Publisher's quarter cream cloth, lettered in black, black and white patterned paper-covered boards, matching black and white coated endpapers, top edge stained black, fore edge untrimmed; lacking the original dust jacket. A very good copy with some wear and toning to extremities, minor tearing to cloth at spine ends, light toning to page edges, and offsetting to pp. 370-371 from something laid in that has since been removed, contemporary ownership signature to front pastedown. An attractive copy. From the library of Pulitzer Prize winning author Kenneth Silverman. The Sound and the Fury is Faulkner's fourth novel and features the Compson family, a once respected aristocratic family that has fallen into hard times, both financially and socially, in the 20th century. Like many of the author's works, The Sound and the Fury is set in the fictional Yoknapatawpha County in Mississippi, based on Faulkner's childhood experiences in Oxford. The novel is primarily written in stream-of-consciousness style and each of its four sections is narrated by and/or focuses on a different family member, each of which is affected by the family's plight in his or her own way. In Faulkner's non-chronological plot, the story is interspersed with characters' asynchronous thoughts and flashbacks. The Sound and the Fury is one of Faulkner's most highly acclaimed novels and played a major role in his receiving the 1949 Nobel Prize in Literature. Chiefly a biographer, Professor Kenneth Silverman co-directed the American Civilization program at NYU, and won not only the Pulitzer but also the Bancroft Prize for his work The Life and Times of Cotton Mather. Other notable works of his include biographies of Edgar Allan Poe and Samuel F. B. Morse. A magician himself, he also profiled the life of Harry Houdini. . First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        A Room of One's Own

      The Fountain Press; The Hogarth Press, New York; London 1929 - First edition, no. 419 of 492 copies, signed by the author in violet ink on the half-title. [viii], 162 pp. Tall 8vo. "A WOMAN MUST HAVE MONEY AND A ROOM OF HER OWN ." Signed first edition of Woolf's seminal essay on women and writing, a classic feminist text. "A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction," said Woolf, "and that, as you will see, leaves the great problem of the true nature of woman and the true nature of fiction unsolved." Woolf's "aim was to establish a woman's tradition, recognizable by its circumstances, subject-matter, and its distinct problems. A Room of One's Own charted this vast territory with an air of innocent discovery which itself sharpens the case against induced ineffectiveness and ignorance that for so long clouded the counter-history of women" (Gordon, 182). "Woolf is brilliantly persuasive when she ridicules the power bias of male history narrowing in on war and kings with golden teapots on their heads. A counter-history waits in the wings: the untried potentialities of women, nurtured but unspoilt in women's colleges, who are not to be imitation men but are to think back 'through their mothers'" (ODNB). Printed in the U.S. by Robert Josephy and published on October 21, 1929, this edition preceded the English edition (both trade and signed) by three days. Woolmer 215A; Kirkpatrick A12a Maroon cloth, untrimmed. Spine slightly sunned, some uneven toning of cloth, a few small spots to cloth, still a near fine copy. Housed in a custom quarter morocco box First edition, no. 419 of 492 copies, signed by the author in violet ink on the half-title. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        A Farewell To Arms

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1929 First edition, first printing. Publisher's black cloth with gold paper labels lettered in black to front board and spine, fore edge untrimmed; in the original unclipped dust jacket. A near fine copy with a slight lean to spine and a touch of foxing to top edge; in a very good or better dust jacket with the $2.50 price slug, some toning and wear to extremities, a few small chips to top edge, previous bookseller's price written in ink to rear flap. An attractive and sturdy copy. Housed in a custom folding case. Hanneman A8a. Set in Italy during World War I, A Farewell to Arms tells the story of a romance between the protagonist Frederic Henry, an American serving as a lieutenant in the Italian ambulance corps, and Catherine Barkley, a British nurse tending to wounded soldiers. Widely considered one of the best novels to come from the war, the novel is, as the dust jacket proclaims, "the very essence of beauty as twisted and made tragic by war" that "expresses the innermost nature of war." Unlike many of the other war novels by contemporary writers, A Farewell to Arms addresses not only the aftermath of WWI but the events of the war itself and specifically the Italian Front around the Battle of Caporetto of Autumn 1917. Accordingly, it stood out amongst the war novels, becoming Hemingway's first best-seller and establishing him as a premier American writer. Interestingly, in his 1958 interview with The Paris Review, Hemingway famously remarked, "I rewrote the ending to A Farewell to Arms, the last page of it, thirty-nine times before I was satisfied." . 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

Small note in ink on half-title. 4to. Original dust jacket over cloth, some minor soiling and losses to jacket, especially along edges and spine, corners of cloth boards slightly frayed. Salzburg (R. Kiesel) n.d. (1936). The Tabakfabrik Linz complex was Austria's first steel frame building constructed in the "New Objectivity" style and has been listed as a heritage site since 1981 due to its architectural importance. Features such as handrails and interior and exterior doors are almost entirely made from the copper alloy Tombak, and the characteristic turquoise color is known as "Linzer Blau" or Linzer Blue. Many particular characteristics of the structure, including the continuous bands of windows and the integration of cork into the outer skin of the building, were due to the necessities of cigarette production, including regulating temperature and humidity.

        The Hands of Orlac [METRO-GOLDWYN-MEYER SCRIPT DEPARTMENT COPY]

      E. P. Dutton and Co. New York (1929) - First Edition stated. M. B. K. dustjacket art. Extremely scarce Bleiler and Hubin listed horror novel which served as the basis for several films including Mad Love, (which is noted on the MGM Script Dept. slip pasted to front endpaper) directed by Karl Freund and starring Peter Lorre. Orlac, a famous concert pianist, who is severely injured in a train wreck that fractures his skull and mutilates his hands. The supervising surgeon, however, decides to amputate Orlac's ruined hands and replace them with the hands of a recently executed prisoner who was serving time for murder. Once the pianist recovers and realizes that his hands are those of a killer, he becomes too distraught to resume his career and begins to question his sanity. Who is that strange man who is shadowing him? Why do his hands seem to have a life of their own? The storyline becomes increasingly grim as Orlac's father is found murdered and the fingerprints on the knife match those on the pianist's new hands. Very Good, paste discoloration at front endpaper where MGM File Copy envelope was pasted (and which is now laid in), nick to cloth at upper front cover, in nearly Very Good dustjacket, top edge with perhaps a half centimeter of loss, some shallow edge chipping at spine ends and flap corners, lower edge of rear panel with sustained centimeter deep chipping, upper rear panel with a square inch sized chip.

        DEATH IN AUTUMN

      Hastings-on-Hudson: Self-published, 1929. Limited Edition. Very Good binding. Signed. One of the earliest efforts by Prokosch, bound by him. Poems, divided into four sections: Amores, Elegies; Pastorals and Sonnets; a bound typescript consisting of 41 unnumbered leaves. "This edition of these poems was made in the Summer of 1929. It is limited to 4 copies, numbered and signed by the author, this being no. 4". The title page has a drawing of a stylized willow tree in red pen; there are a couple of corrections in pen, presumably by Prokosch. A true rarity by this rather elusive and mysterious literary figure (and forger of some of his own productions -- the so-called "Butterfly Books"): "All the facts in Who's Who, or whatever, are so utterly meaningless ... my real life have been subversive, anarchic, vicious, lonely and capricious" [see Robert Greenfield, Dreamer's Journey: The Life and Writings of Frederick Prokosch (2010), p. 17]. Bound by Prokosch, rather rudimentarily, in marbled boards backed in blue cloth with a hand-lettered paper label; the hinges have been discreetly reinforced. We locate one copy at the Beinecke Library, and one copy at UCLA. Very Good binding.

        Diary of Travel Cruises to the West Indies and Bermuda 1929-1930

      n.p.: n.p., 1929. Diary. Very good. Approx. 6.5" x 4" diary with leather covered boards and working metal locking clasp. The diary is in very good condition with light edge rubs to the leather. Diary has gilt decorated borders and "My Trip" in gilt letters on the front cover. White glossy end papers. All edges gilt. Large, folded, color lithograph map of the United States tipped in on the rear paste down. The diary has seven small leather tabs with gilt lettered subject headings including The Journey, The Places, People I Met, Autograph, Addresses, Side Trips, and The Return. No address of Ruth Gilbert or location where the diary originated was found inside. Pasted down on the verso of the right front flyleaf are 3 thin cut paper clippings arranged to provide the time and location of the Steamer departure. The front blank end paper has a pasted down trimmed map illustration of the cruise course with "Furness Bermuda Line" printed below. The front blank end paper has a pasted down, trimmed notice, typed on Thos. Cook & Son Company letterhead, and addressed to Miss Ruth Gilbert. This notice is signed by the company agent and provides details of the ship's departure. Contents of the diary consist of 118 pages of manuscript diary entries, autographs, and a few sketches recorded during two separate cruises in early 1929 and in the summer of 1930. Ms. Gilbert traveled on the Steamer "Nova Scotia" and visited St. Thomas, St. Croix, St. Kitts, Antigua, Guadeloupe, Martinique, St. Lucia, Barbados, Trinidad, Dominica, and Bermuda. The first entry is dated February 9th, 1929 as the ship set sail at 3:00pm. Miss Gilbert describes her daily observations while aboard on ship and while exploring the Islands. Some of the entries include racist names and period stereotypes for people of color. One entry refers to children of color as ..."N...r tots" (Guadeloupe Feb. 16, 1929). While in Trinidad, February 22, 1929, Gilbert observes, "The Island has quite a population of Indians and they are so much more intelligent looking and of stronger character apparently then the blacks.." Entries of hurricane damage to the Islands from the previous year are also recorded. In two entries Miss Gilbert writes, "We went ashore about 3:30 taking our bathing suits. Had to go in large rowboats propelled by negroes. Upon arrival, all took a bus across the island from Frederiksted to Christiansted, 14 miles. The country was rather barren and dreary. There is quite a lot of destruction from the hurricane. The Marines are at Christiansted. In one street as a result of the hurricane a house had collapsed on top of a car, puncturing all the tires." (St. Croix, February 14, 1929)  "Went ashore here about 8. From the ship the place looked wrecked from the hurricane and upon landing found that to be true and reconstruction very slow. The streets are dirty, the shops filthy and not much in them." (Basse Terre, Guadeloupe, February 16, 1929) The hurricane referenced was called the San Felipe Segundo Hurricane (1928), one of the deadliest hurricanes in the Atlantic. When the same hurricane hit Florida it was called the Okeechobee hurricane. The contents of the diary also include an autograph and address section with several names and and locations of people Miss Gilbert met during her cruise. Several of the people came from New York City and Boston. A type name card of "Richard E. Dillon" is placed just before the tab section "People I have Met". The name at the top of the page is "Mr. R. E. Dillon - "Boston Rusher". A few original pencil sketches were drawn on the pages. One of the sketches, protected by tissue, is of an unnamed clipper ship. The drawing is signed "S. Moore.

        Typed Letter Signed, "Theodore Roosevelt" to Seymour Halpern

      New York, 1929. 1p., on personal "Oyster Bay" letterhead. 8vo. Old folds, toning, minor chipping at the bottom of the page not affecting text, else fine. 1p., on personal "Oyster Bay" letterhead. 8vo. The Most Perilous Time in My Life. Reading in part: "I don't know what the most perilous time in my life was, but I suppose it must have been various times during the war. The hunting trip that was the biggest success was the one we have just finished, because on that we got the giant panda, which has never been shot by a white man before... Neither Kermit nor I really enjoy fully exploring or hunting unless we are together. On this last expedition he had to leave two months before the end, and I missed him greatly..." The eldest son of President Theodore Roosevelt and First Lady Edith Roosevelt, Theodore "Ted" Roosevelt III, known as Theodore Jr., grew up listening to his father's stories of wars and great battles and the expectations that every man should do his part. After graduating from Harvard Roosevelt launched a successful career in investment banking. At the outbreak of WWI, he volunteered to be one of the first American soldiers to go to France, serving as a battalion commander with the First Division, where he was gassed and wounded at Soissons in 1918. After the war, he served as Assistant Secretary of the Navy, Governor of Puerto Rico, and Governor-General of the Philippines. In the 1930s, he reentered the business world becoming Chairman of the Board of American Express and Vice President of Doubleday Books. Despite arthritis brought on from injuries of the previous war, and a serious heart condition that Roosevelt hid from his superiors, he returned to active military duty in WWII and was promoted to the rank of brigadier general. A cane in one hand a pistol in the other, Roosevelt led his troops into action in North Africa, Tunisia, and the invasion of Sicily, where he was cited for "showing complete contempt for personal danger." His insistence on leading his men from the front culminated in June 1944, when he led the first wave of troops ashore at Utah Beach, on D-Day, during the invasion of Normandy. After being one of the first men on the beach, Roosevelt discovered that they had landed south of their objective. He personally reconnoitered the area and returned with a revised plan of attack, famously declaring that "We'll start the war from right here." Roosevelt adroitly directed troops to their new objectives, remaining cool under intense fire and inspiring confidence in his men. When asked to name the single most heroic action he had ever seen in combat, General Omar Bradley replied that it was "Ted Roosevelt on Utah Beach." Roosevelt died of a heart attack in France a month after the Normandy landings. He received the Medal of Honor, which was awarded posthumously for his actions on D-day.
