Wikipedia___________________________________________Robert E. Tally:Tally, Robert. E., Mine Fire Methods Employed by the United Verde Copper Company: American Institute of Mining and Metallurgical Engineers Transactions, v. 55, p-186-195; 1917_________________________________________________A note From American Journeys Library:Author NoteAntonio de Espejo arrived in Mexico in 1571 with his brother Pedro Muñoz de Espejo in the company of chief Inquisitor Pedro Moyas de Contreras. The Spanish king sent this party to Mexico to establish an independent Inquisition of religious conversion in New Spain. In addition to their duties in the Inquisition, they became successful ranchers by exploiting their royal connections. In 1581, when his brother killed a man in a brawl, Antonio de Espejo received only nominal punishment and moved north to start a ranch at Santa Bárbara. From there, Espejo became involved in this expedition into New Mexico.Because of the loss of the friars and laity in the 1581-1582 Rodríguez Expedition (see AJ-004 to AJ-007), the local Franciscan friars at San Bartolomé sought to rescue Fray Rodríguez whom they believed was left behind at the New Mexico pueblos. Although it was likely known that Fray Jhoan de Santa Maria was killed on that expedition, Fray Bernaldino Beltrán of the Durango Monastery agreed to lead the campaign financed by Antonio de Espejo.Espejo Expedition of 1582-1583The expedition of twelve soldiers, Espejo, the friars, servants, 115 horses and mules, left San Bartolomé November 10, 1582. In addition to their mission to find if any friars remained alive, Espejo also hoped to investigate the mining prospects in the region. Espejo's account details several grass-hut rancherías of the Indians of the Conchos valley that subsisted by hunting rabbits, hares, and deer using bows and arrows, and by cultivating melons, gourds, maize, and the Maguey cactus used to make mescale. Espejo and Fray Beltrán proceeded to the Pazaguantes village, similar to the Conchos, living in grass-hut rancherías. They found silver ore while on the way to the Toboso villages, a tribe they befriended and for whom the Spaniards erected a cross for Christian worship.The expedition next encountered the Jumanos, whom the Spanish call the Patarabueyes. There were five Jumano pueblos, with permanent buildings and a population of nearly ten thousand. The nearby tributary of the Conchos River provided the Jumanos with water for gardening and habitat for fish. Espejo traveled north from the Jumanos to encounter a band of Indians converted to Christianity by Alonso Núñez Cabeza de Vaca or on the Coronado Expedition decades before (see AJ-070 to AJ-072, and AJ-086).Their travels continued from Texas into New Mexico and among the numerous pueblos along the Upper Rio Grande. In these pueblos lived tens of thousands of Indians raising turkeys, and growing maize, beans, gourds, melons, and peppers. The Spanish friars reported that the Indian religious shrines and grottoes reminded them of similar Roman Catholic religious shrines.Espejo continued north to the Tiguas provinces and the Pualas (Puruay) pueblo where Fray Francisco López, Fray Augustín Ruiz, and their four converts were killed the year before. This was the same province where the Pualas killed nine soldiers and forty horses during the Coronado Expedition in 1540-1542. Here the Espejo Expedition split up, in part because they feared that they would be attacked. Espejo and Beltrán took a small party to Maguas, a highly populated pueblo, where Fray Jhoan de Santa Maria was killed during the Rodríguez expedition.The party followed the Jemez River northwest to the province of the Emexes. There they visited Acoma, which is one of North America's oldest inhabited communities. Acoma is built on a rock rising nearly 350 feet above the plateau. Its cisterns catch rain to serve the large population, and cultivate gardens located on a nearby river. The Acoma presented Espejo with their snake and flute ceremonies, which he described as "many juggling feats, some very clever, with live snakes." While in Acoma, Espejo learned of Coronado's campaign there, and the Indians also told him that a lake of gold existed further west in Arizona.Following that lead, Espejo visited Mohoce in the Hopi region of Arizona, which other Indians warned them not to visit because the Spaniards might be killed. Espejo successfully convinced the Moqui they posed no threat and was welcomed with hundreds of woven cotton mantas, or blankets. Again, Indians told Espejo about the fabled lake of gold found further west. Although Espejo never found the lake of gold, he did extract silver ore from several regional locations that produced high-grade silver.Indian guides showed Espejo a shortcut passage back to the pueblos where he regrouped with the rest of his party. They returned to San Bartolomé, bringing with them one Mohoce (Hopi) woman and another Indian from the Tamos pueblo. Espejo's expedition is marked by his violent attacks on Indians at Puaray and Tiguex in which dozens of inhabitants were executed and their pueblos burned.Espejo arrived back at San Bartolomé on September 20, 1583, and later reported to both the Spanish viceroy and the king about his discovery of mines in Arizona and New Mexico. Espejo's expedition prompted interest in New Mexico among several Spanish adventurers in New Spain and led to the appointment of Juan de Oñate as governor of the New Mexico province fifteen years later.

        Spring Shower (Original screenplay for the 1932 film)

      Hunnia Filmstúdió, Budapest 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 titled 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. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

      Kiev: Derzhavne Vid-vo Ukraini, 1929. 204 pp.: ill. 28x18 cm. In original illustrated wrappers. Covers with tears and restoration, loss of the small piece and restoration of the spine, general soiling, stain on the upper side of few pages, small restoration of the edge of p.1. Illustrated throughout. Illustrations by Vasily Vatagin were made specially for this Ukrainian edition. Vasily Alekseevich Vatagin (1883-1969), Russian Soviet artist and sculptor who produced illustrations for around 50 books about animals. But 'The Jungle Book' is considered the main of his works: «Illustrations to the 'Mowgli' became my main achievment as I put all efforts into it, and for 40 years there were no such editions to compete with it». He went to India where he made hundreds of sketches. First version of illustrations was printed in 1922 in Russia and included around 120 drawings but for this Ukrainian edition he prepared new set of drawings. First Ukrainian translations were made in the beginning of the 20 th century, and in comparison with Russian translations many consider them more expressive. Also interesting how a paragraph about the priest in "Tiger! Tiger!" that was in the first English edition (1894) but was excluded by the author in all other printings was still translated by several early translators. This paragraph passed from one edition to another for almost a century. Our edition also has this paragraph. WorldCat locates no copies.

      Gryphe, Cercle, 1929. in - 4, ff. 40 n.n., a quaderni sciolti in copertina in cartone, sovracopertina. Edizione di 133 esemplari num., illustrata da un antiporta e 37 litografie rialzate in argento e palladio di Claudius Linossier (1893 - 1953). Costato due anni di lavoro, fu l'unico libro illustrato da questo artista, che volle utilizzare questa tecnica introdotta da L. Schmied (1873 - 1941), in cui l'estetica dell'Art déco viene applicata alla tipografia. Sviluppando un ciclo iconografico che unisce simboli ad astrazioni geometriche, l'artista volle che ogni soggetto apparisse in modo speculare sulla doppia pagina. Non avendo mai pubblicato in vita, Maurice de Guérin (1810 - 1839) fu scoperto da George Sand che fece uscire nel 1840 questo testo poetico in prosa, secondo Remy de Gourmont "à mettre parmi les plus belles et les plus précieuses pages de la langue française". É la prima delle rare edizioni del Cercle Gryphe, associazione di bibliofili lionesi nata nel 1927 dall'idea di Alain Pauphilet. Perfetto esempl. (n. 116 su 133), a fogli chiusi.

        Sous les toits de Paris [Under the Roofs of Paris] (Original photograph from the 1930 film)

      N.p.: N.p., 1929. Vintage double weight photograph from the French release 1930 film. With the logo of the French production company Films Sonores Tobis at the bottom left corner of the image. Shot by the film's cinematographer Georges Périnal. Shown are Pola Illéry and Gaston Modot in an intimate moment, shot at night from outside a horizontal folding window. A stunning image, capturing the essence of the film's story, and literally that of Clair's entire aesthetic in the 1920s and 1930s: small, intimate stories of France's lower and middle class in a struggle to love and simply survive--often shot through windows and doors, as seen here. Georges Périnal was one of the great cinematographers in early French and European cinema, working with every major director of that time, and in particular with Clair. In addition to shooting all of Clair's major films in the 1930s, he also photographed Cocteau's "Blood of a Poet" (1932), William Cameron Menzies' "Things to Come" (1936), Michael Powell's "The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp" (1943), and Carol Reed's "The Fallen Idol" (1948). 9 x 6.5 inches (13 x 18 cm). In an archival mat. Four tiny pinholes at the corners, press notations in pencil and a shallow horizontal bruise from an old non-archival mounting on the verso, else quite bright. Very Good Near Fine. Criterion Collection 161.

        ROD AND LINE: ESSAYS, TOGETHER WITH AKSAKOV ON FISHING. By Arthur Ransome.

      Jonathan Cape. London. - 1929 1st edition. 8vo (140mm x 210mm). Pp286 + ii pp ads. Frontispiece plate. Brown cloth, spine titled in gilt. Price 7s. 6d. Browning to edges and small mark to margin of page 238 (not affecting text). Good-plus in torn and slightly chipped but mostly complete dust-wrapper with owner's name on front panel. Very scarce with dust-wrapper. "In addition to his brilliant success as foreign correspondent in Russia and as author of the Swallows & Amazons series of books for children, Arthur Ransome (1884-1967) produced two irresistible fishing books. The first of these, Rod and Line (1929), a collection of pieces originally written for The Guardian newspaper, is probably the most delightful fisherman's bedside book ever produced. Arthur Ransome shared with Harry Plunket Greene a most appealing sense of humour, as well as a passion for fishing and fishing history. But unlike the author of Where the Bright Waters Meet, Ransome was no chalkstream man; he was from the North, lived for years in the Lake District, and did most of his fishing on local rivers and tarns. He confessed to being no more than an average performer with the rod, content to creel pike or perch and the odd eel when nothing finer was available. His skill as a writer, however, was of the first rank. No one has bettered Ransome's wonderful descriptions of fishing days, nor evoked with such art the characters of old anglers, fly-tyers and companions. For sheer enjoyment, Rod and Line takes the prize." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Blacker the Berry: A Novel of Negro Life

      New York: Macaulay Company, 1929. First edition. Hardcover. Very good minus. 262pp. Octavo [19.5 cm] Brown cloth with the title stamped in black on the front board and backstrip, and a small black ink stamped figure on the front cover. Publisher's brown top stain. There are multiple small moisture stains on the front cover, the spine is prominently rolled, the spine ends are moderately bumped and rubbed. Thurman's first published novel offers a frank portrayal of prejudice within the black community, and was divisive among the public and critics alike. Thurman was already fairly well known within the "Harlem Renaissance," but the publication of this work would announce his talents to a wider audience, and would help to cement his reputation as a writer who would take on unpopular (and sometimes uncomfortable) subjects.

        The Middle Parts of Fortune: Somme and Ancre, 1916.

      London: The Piazza Press, issued to subscribers by Peter Davies, 1929.. LIMITED FIRST EDITION. In Two Volumes. Octavo. pp. viii, 226 [4]; 227-453. No. 167 of 520 copies printed on handmade paper. Bound in brown cloth lettered and ruled in gilt to back-strip, with marbled endpapers and top edge gilt. Largely unopened, with fragments of the original glassine jacket with paper flaps (all flaps present), housed in the publisher's burgundy slip-case with thumbhole access. Books are very fine, case with some light rubbing and one bump to corner. This is the original text of the novel which became widely known as 'Her Privates We' when published under that title the following year; various 'prunings and excisions' were made to the trade edition as the bluntness of language was thought to make the book unfit for public distribution. T.E. Lawrence commented "No praise could be too sheer for this book".
