        Spring Shower (Original screenplay for the 1932 film)

      Budapest: Hunnia Filmstúdió, 1929. Presentation copy of an early draft script for the Hungarian film, released in Hungry in 1932 as "Tavaszi zàpor," in Frace in 1933 as "Marie, Legende Hongroise," and in the United States in 1935 as "Spring Shower." Housed in a (likely hand-sewn) floral cloth-covered portfolio, the script is INSCRIBED by the Hungarian-American feminist and radical socialist screenwriter Ilona Fülöp on the title page: "To Mac: / Because You still trust me! / Ilona / Christmas, 1929 / Hollywood, Cal." A unique and attractive item, and probably the only surviving copy of the script. The story of a poor girl driven out of her village when she becomes pregnant by her employer's wealthy fiancé, finding refuge working as a maid in a brothel. After her daughter is taken from her, however, she falls into alcoholism and dies. A maid in Heaven as she was on earth, she saves her daughter from befalling a similar fate by "emptying her mop bucket" on her daughter's head via a rain shower at a pivotal moment. A multinational production in which a Hungarian screenwriter and Hungarian director, both with experience in Hollywood, shot a film starring a French actress using frozen assets from a French producer that had been mandated for exclusively Hungarian use. Though not a box office success at the time, it is now regarded as one of the all-time great films originating from the country. In a 1919 article entitled "What is 'Revolution' Doing to Love?," screenwriter Fülöp describes herself as a socialist radical, as opposed to a revolutionary or a Bolshevik, and her desire to further equal rights for women strongly defines her as a modern-day feminist as well. "Spring Showers," with its women- and proletarian-friendly plot, thus comes as little surprise. Housed in floral cloth-covered portfolio studio wrappers. Title page present, with credits for screenwriter Fulop. 78 leaves, with last leaf of text numbered 77. Carbon typescript. Pages Very Good, portfolio Very Good, bound with a single line of hand-stitching.

        "SELF-PORTRAIT OF LYND WARD AUTHOR OF GOD'S MAN ..." [caption title].

      New York: Jonathan Cape and Harrison Smith, [1929].. Original woodcut proof (15 x 10 cm plus large margins), with printed tissue overlay affixed by flap on verso. Fine, in publisher's envelope with return address. The upper panel of the envelope is darkened from proximity to something, not affecting the print. According to the publisher's caption, this is one of "100 proofs taken directly from Mr. Ward's wood block and sent to you with compliments of his publisher." It is signed below the image by Ward in pencil. While the edition is generous, the mode of this item's distribution as a promotional item, for Ward's first novel without words, resulted in a somewhat larger attrition rate than would normally be expected.

        Urformen der Kunst

      Ernst Wasmuth A.G., Berlin 1929 - Folio. XVII, [3]pp (Text), 120 leaves (Plates). Original photo-illustrated dust-jacket over gilt-stamped green cloth with gold lettering to spine and front cover. DJ protected by modern mylar. Publisher's device on title. Second edition of the most famous work by German botanist and photographer, Karl Blossfeldt (1865-1932). "His entire photographic output is devoted to plant parts: twig ends, seed pods, tendrils, leaf buds etc. These he meticulously arranged against stark backgrounds and photographed in magnification, so that unfamiliar shapes from the vegetal worlds are revealed as startling, elegant architectural forms. Since the first publication of his photographs in the late twenties (1928) his work is considered to be one of the aesthetic highlights of photo history." Originally published in 1928 when Blossfeldt was sixty-three and a professor of applied art at the Berliner Kunsthochschule, "Urformen der Kunst" quickly became an international bestseller and in turn made Blossfeldt famous almost overnight. His contemporaries were enchanted by the abstract shapes and structures in nature that he revealed to the world. In 2001 "Urformen der Kunst" was included in "The Book of 101 Books" as one of the seminal photographic books of the 20th Century. Illustrated with 120 b/w reproductions in photogravure. Each image is approx. 10 1/4 x 7 1/2" on a 12 1/4 x 9 1/2" sheet. Sporadic creasing along edges of dust-jacket, with minor chipping at head and tail of spine.

        [Thirteen papers, all first editions, in Ergebnisse eines mathematischen Kolloquiums, unter Mitwirkung von Kurt Gödel und Georg Nöbeling. Herausgegeben von Karl Menger. Heft 1-5].Leipzig & Berlin: B.G. Teubner, 1931-33.

      "First editions, and a fine set in the original printed wrappers, of these rare proceedings to which Gödel contributed thirteen important papers and remarks on the foundations of logic and mathematics (see below for a complete annotated listing). The most important are perhaps 'Über Vollständigkeit und Widerspruchsfreiheit' ('On completeness and consistency') in Heft 3 and 'Zur intuitionistischen Arithmetik und Zahlentheorie' ('On intuitionist arithmetic and number theory') in Heft 4. Based on the lecture at the Colloquium required for his <i>Habilitation</i>, in the first paper Gödel presented a different approach to his epochal incompleteness theorem, published just a few months earlier in <i>Monatshefte für Mathematik</i>: instead of Russell's theory of types, in the present version he used Peano's axioms for the natural numbers; this soon became the standard approach. In the second paper, Gödel proved that intuitionist mathematics is no more certain, or more consistent, than ordinary mathematics. "By invitation, in October 1929 Gödel began attending Menger's mathematics colloquium, which was modelled on the Vienna Circle. There in May 1930 he presented his dissertation results, which he had discussed with Alfred Tarski three months earlier, during the latter's visit to Vienna. From 1932 to 1936 he published numerous short articles in the proceedings of that colloquium (including his only collaborative work) and was co-editor of seven of its volumes. Gödel attended the colloquium quite regularly and participated actively in many discussions, confining his comments to brief remarks that were always stated with the greatest precision" (<i>DSB</i> XVII: 350).<br/><br/> Working under Hans Hahn, Karl Menger (1902-85) received his PhD from the University of Vienna in 1924 and accepted a professorship there three years later. "During the academic year 1928/29, several students asked Menger to direct a Mathematical Colloquium, somewhat analogous to the philosophically motivated Vienna Circle ... This Colloquium, which met on alternate Tuesdays during semester time, had a flexible agenda including lectures by members or invited guests, reports on recent publications and discussion of unsolved problems. Menger kept a record of these meetings, which he published, regularly in November of the following year, under the title 'Ergebnisse eines mathematischen Kolloquiums'... <br/><br/> "Gödel had entered the university in 1924, and Menger first met him as the youngest and most silent member of the Vienna Circle. In 1928, Gödel started working on Hilbert's program for the foundation of mathematics, and in 1929 he succeeded in solving the first of four problems of Hilbert, proving in his PhD thesis (under Hans Hahn) that first order logic is complete: Any valid formula could be derived from the axioms.". "Five separate issues, in their original printed wrappers. 8vo (232 x 152 mm), pp. 31, [1, blank]; 38, [2, blank]; 26; 45, [1, blank]; 42."

      New York: E.P. Dutton, 1929. First Edition. First Edition in English and first edition in hardcover, preceded by the French edition "Les mains d'Orlac," in 1920. With the publisher's wraparound band. A seminal horror novel, rare in dust jacket, written by one of the most important French genre fiction writers of the early twentieth century. The basis for several films, including the classic German silent film starring Conrad Veidt, "Orlacs Hände" [The Hands of Orlac] (1924), and its American rival, the sound version starring Peter Lorre, "Mad Love," directed by emigre Karl Freund for MGM in 1935, and today considered one of the greatest horror films of the 1930s. Near Fine in a Very Good dust jacket, with the publisher's wraparound band ("The Dutton Prize Mystery for November"). The jacket's deco design is bright and striking, with some toning to the spine (jacket and band), a chip at the crown affecting a portion of the title ("The Ha" and part of "n"), a portion of the publisher name at the heel (the "Du" in "Dutton"), and a few tiny chips, nicks, and closed tears.

        Gesammelte Werke / Musarionausgabe * G A N Z L E D E R - V o r z u g s a u s g a b e

      München, Musarion Verlag, 1929. Vollständige Ausgabe in den originalen Verlags-Luxuseinbänden: 23 sehr aufwendig hergestellte Handeinbände (schwarzes geglättetes Kalbsleder / Ganzleder / Leder im Format 17,5 x 24,5 cm) mit Kopfgoldschnitt, Rückentitel auf zwei Titelschildern, Rückendekoration und Dekoration jeweils beider Deckel in aufwendiger Linien-Handvergoldung, Stehkanten- sowie Innenkantenvergoldung, Goldkopfschnitt. 21 Textbände und zwei Registerbände, mit vier Porträts und sieben (davon eines gefaltet) zumeist mehrseitigen Fakisimiles. Erste, im Auftrag von Elisabeth Förster-Nietzsche veranstaltete Werkausgabe, enthaltend unter anderem auch bis dahin unveröffentlichte Jugendschriften, herausgegeben von Dr.Richard Oehler, Max Oehler und Dr.Friedrich Chr.Würzbach. - Insgesamt sind 1.600 Exemplare dedruckt worden, davon 185 in Ganzpergament, jedoch nur fünfzehn Exemplaren in Ganzleder und auf Japan-Velin-Papier, gebunden von A.Köllner/Leipzig, dieses Exemplar mit der Nummer 15. Vorsätze teilweise minimal stockfleckig.- Kostbarste Version dieser Monumentalausgabe, die seinerzeit auch als Broschur, in Halbleder und in Ganzpergament lieferbar war. - Wahrscheinlich war es eine dieser Ganzlederausgaben Nr.1 ff, welche Benito Mussolini im zweiten Weltkrieg von Adolf Hitler als Staatsgeschenk des Großdeutschen Reiches erhielt; in der Kunstbuchbinderei Frieda Thiersch/München arbeitete ein Buchbindermeister volle zwei Jahre daran, für diese - ohnehin schon prachtvolle Ausgabe - noch wesentlich aufwendigere Einbände zu schaffen: es sollte dem Duce offensichtlich eine ganz besonders große Freude bereitet werden...(vgl. Fritz Krinitz, Frieda Thiersch und ihre Handbuchbinderei, Stuttgart 1968; dort ist das Führergeschenk als Abbildung 10 zu sehen) - \"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). Bei Dünndruckpapier werden die Lagen zum Heften leicht vorgeritzt. Ein Einsägen oder gar Einraspeln der Bünde findet nicht statt. 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, dazu passendes 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 /München. - Insgesamt wohlerhaltenes und sehr ansehnliches Exemplar, ledigleich bei einigen Bänden kleine Kratzer im Leder, Bünde teilweise beschabt, sonst tadellos.

        The Return of Sherlock Holmes (Original screenplay for the 1929 film)

      Los Angeles: Paramount Pictures, 1929. Early treatment for the 1929 film, the first Sherlock Holmes film to have been produced with sound, and the first to include the Holmes utterance, "Elementary, my dear Watson" (a phrase never used by Doyle), though that statement regrettably does not appear in this draft. The first known treatment was written by Oliver P. Garrett, followed by this one, scripted by F. Hugh Herbert, and the final writing credits went to Garrett Fort and director Basil Dean. This treatment differs substantially from the finished film, and is more faithful to Doyle's source material. A rare surviving artifact from the great detective's earliest days on the screen. Side-stitched tall self-wrappers, noted as an "Outline Treatment" on the front wrapper, rubber-stamped project No. 1491 and MASTER FILE, dated May 21, 1929, with a credit for screenwriter Herbert. 52 leaves, mixed original and carbon typescript on yellow stock, with a few holograph pencil notations on the first leaf, including "1st Rough Draft." Very Good condition, with some wear to the first leaf at the bottom stitch.
