        BLACKMAIL

      New York: World Wide Publishing Co., Inc., [1929]., 1929. First edition. First U. S. edition. Novelization by Ruth Alexander and Play by Charles Bennett. Gold gilt on the spine slightly dulled, else a near fine copy in dust jacket with minor wear to the spine ends and corners. An excellent example of the scarce dust jacket with superb wraparound art work. An attractive young woman wishes to break away from the dull monotony of her routine life. In a thoughtless moment she is persuaded to follow a direction that leads to jealousy, murder, and blackmail. The novelization of the Suspense/Mystery play by Charles Bennett, which was first staged in London in February 1928. The play closed after just 42 performances, and would likely have remained little more than a brief footnote to the career of Tallulah Bankhead, had Alfred Hitchcock not adapted it into what was touted as the first "all-talking" British film. The film was a hit, and put Hitchcock firmly on the path to becoming the "Master of Suspense." This book, issued in the U. S. as No. 9 in the World Wide Edition series, was actually printed in England but bound by a company in Long Island. A superb copy of an early, uncommon Hitchcock film source.

        The Writings of Mark Twain.

      Harper & Brothers, New York 1929 - The Memorial Edition, one of 90 copies bound with an original Mark Twain manuscript page. Octavo, bound in half morocco, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, plates. The lightest minor shelf wear to some extremities and along very bottom edges of a few volumes. The leaf paged "43" includes notes regarding a "whisky conspiracy" against soldiers' health and morals, among other ink jottings. "To understand America, read Mark Twain. No matter what new craziness pops up in America, I find it described beforehand by him He was never innocent, at home or abroad" (Garry Wills). "High and fine literature is wine," Twain once wrote, "and mine is only water; but everybody likes water." This beautiful edition of Twain's complete novels, essays and sketches attests to the enduring popularity and power of his works--many of which, despite their author's protestation to the contrary, have come to be regarded as among the finest vintage American literature offers. Among other classics, the set includes A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, Life on the Mississippi, and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.

        Pflanzenstudien. 6 Original-Photographien in Mappe von Paul Dobe.

      Ca. 1929. - Die Mappe enthält: Zottige Klapper (465), Grind-Flockenblume (521), Kohldistel (543), Akelei (468), Letterdistel (546), Wiesenbocksbart (455). Bildformat ca. 12 x 9,5 bis 17 x 13 cm, auf Karton unter Passepartout montiert, nummeriert, bezeichnet und signiert. In kartonierter Mappe, 33 x 24 cm, mit Aufschrift. Eindrucksvolle photographische Pflanzenstudien nach Blossfeldt zwischen Kunsthochschule und Bauhaus. Paul Dobe begann 1905 ein Studium an der Königlichen akademischen Hochschule für die bildenden Künste. Dort unterrichtete Karl Blossfeldt seit 1899 das Fach "Modellieren nach lebenden Pflanzen", und möglicherweise erhielt Dobe davon Kenntnis. Dennoch verließ er Berlin bald, um seine Studien in München bei Wilhelm von Debschitz fortzusetzen. Unter dem Einfluss von Hermann Obrist führte ihn die Benutzung des Mikrospkops zu seinem Lebensthema, dem Studium der "kleinen Blume". 1919/1920 hielt Paul Dobe am neu gegründeten Bauhaus seine Vorlesungsreihe "Das Wesen der Plfanzenform". 1929 erschien in der Reihe Die Blauen Bücher seine mit Photographien illustrierte Publikation Wilde Blumen der deutschen Flora (hier beiligend).

        A Farewell to Arms

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1929 First edition, first printing, without the legal disclaimer. Publisher's black cloth, gilt labels with black lettering to the front board and spine; in original first issue pictorial dust jacket, with artwork by Cleon and "Katherine" on the front flap. Near fine, bright and fresh binding, tiny stain to the dedication page and first fly title, small price stamp to the rear free endpaper, otherwise fine interior; unclipped dust jacket, with some light wear and a few minor chips to the extremities, light rubbing to the folds, some toning to the spine and panel edges, a few minor scuffs to the otherwise bright panels. Overall, a very good and pleasing copy. 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 Farwell 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 Farewell to Arms, the last page of it, thirty-nine times before I was satisfied.". 1st Edition.. Hardcover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included.

        ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND ORIGINAL ART: Page 130

      - CARROLL,LEWIS. (POGANY) ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND ORIGINAL ART: Page 130 captioned "The moment Alice Appeared She Was Appealed to by all Three to Settle the Question". Offered here is Willy Pogany's drawing that appears on page 130 of his edition of Alice published by Dutton in 1929. The book is illustrated in black and white and Pogany's Alice is a decidedly Art Deco girl with a flapper hairdo and short skirt! The image shows Alice talking to the King and Queen of Hearts with 4 other card figures standing near and the Cheshire Cat in the upper corner. The image measures oblong 7 1/4" wide by 4 3/4" high on flexible board that is overall 11 x 11 1/2" and is attractively matted, signed with initials. The image in the book is greatly reduced from the original measuring 3 3/4" wide x 2 1/2" high. A great item for the Alice collector, full of charm and detail. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Die Tepler deutsche Bibel des 14. Jahrhunderts.

      Reichenberg [Gebr] Stiepel 1929 - 27 x 22 cm. 82 S. Original Pappband. Böhmerland-Drucke ; Bd. 3. Leicht gebogen. Die Tepler deutsche Bibel wurde im Jahre 1929 in der Druckerei Gebrüder Stiepel GmbH, Reichenberg in Böhmen gedruckt. Die Gesamtausgabe umfaßt 600 Stücke, Ausgabe A Nummer 1 - 25, Ausgabe B 26 - 75 und Ausgabe C 76 - 600. HIER VORHANDEN DIE AUSGABE B Nummer 75. Mit fünf Handsignierten Lithographien Josef Hegenbarth. Manchmal in den Rändern wenig stockfleckig. Josef Hegenbarth (* 15. Juni 1884 in Böhmisch Kamnitz, Österreich-Ungarn; † 27. Juli 1962 in Dresden) war ein deutscher Grafiker, Maler und Illustrator. Das Künstlerhaus Dresden-Loschwitz, von Martin Pietzsch errichtet, diente als Wohnung und Atelier u. a. auch Hegenbarth. Grab von Josef Hegenbarth auf dem Loschwitzer Friedhof Kindheit und Jugend[Bearbeiten . Josef Hegenbarth wurde als Sohn von Franz Josef Hegenbarth und der Mutter Marie geborene Palme, die aus dem benachbarten Steinschönau stammte, in Böhmisch Kamnitz geboren. Der Vater übernahm von seinen Vettern die Glasraffinerie „Hegenbarth & Söhne". Als Erstgeborener wuchs er mit zwei Schwestern auf. Schon früh zeigte sich sein Zeichentalent. Nach dem Besuch der Volksschule in Böhmisch Kamnitz, wechselte Hegenbarth zur Realschule der k.k. Bezirksstadt Böhmisch Leipa. Als sein Vetter Emanuel Hegenbarth 1903 an die Dresdner Akademie zum Leiter der neubegründeten Klasse Tiermalerei berufen wurde, folgte er ihm im Jahr 1905 nach Dresden. Dresdner Lehrjahre[Bearbeiten. In den ersten drei Jahren arbeitete er für sich allein und legte in regelmäßigen Abständen seine Arbeiten dem Vetter Emanuel vor. Von ihm erfuhr er die erforderlichen Hinweise für sein weiteres Studium. Er begann im Zeichensaal bei Richard Müller. Die Zeichenklasse übersprang er jedoch und trat gleich in den Malsaal. Hegenbarth war dann ab 1908 Schüler der Kunstakademie Dresden bei Carl Bantzer und Oskar Zwintscher. Mit Carl Bantzer kam es dabei zu heftigen Auseinandersetzungen und schlussendlich gab Bantzer Hegenbarth frei. Als neuen Lehrer wählte er Oskar Zwintscher. Nach absolvierter Malklasse wurde er bis 1915 Meisterschüler von Gotthardt Kuehl. Bei ihm lernte er die Auseinandersetzung mit der äußeren Realität, die ihn stärkte aus der eigenen Schöpferkraft zu gestalten. Prager Intermezzo. Im Jahr 1917 musste er sich der Musterung zum Militärdienst stellen, wurde aber nicht für tauglich befunden. Die allgemeinen Verhältnisse in Dresden verschlechterten sich zunehmend und seine Sehnsucht nach der böhmischen Landschaft nahm zu. So hielt er sich von 1917 bis 1919 in Prag auf und fand bald freundschaftlichen Anschluss an den Kreis um August Brömse, der an der Akademie der Bildenden Künste als Professor wirkte. Hegenbarth wurde Mitglied der von jungen Künstlern aus Brömses Umkreis gegründeten Künstlergruppe „Die Pilger", die aus dessen Schülern bestand und aus der nach Brömses Tod 1925 die Prager Secession hervorging. Seine Tätigkeit in Prag konzentrierte sich auf Radierung und Zeichnung, wobei sich seine illustrative Befähigung herauskristallisierte. Rückkehr nach Dresden. Hegenbarth kehrte 1919 aus dem bewegten Prag nach Dresden zurück, wo er 1922 ein Wohnhaus in Dresden-Loschwitz erwarb, in dem er bis zu seinem Tod 1962 lebte und in seinem Wohnungsatelier arbeitete. Hier hatte sich noch kurz vor Ausbruch des Ersten Weltkrieges eine junge Künstlergruppe zu dem Verband Künstlervereinigung Dresden zusammengeschlossen, an deren Ausstellungen er bis 1939 teilnahm. In ihr fanden zunächst die Impressionisten eine repräsentative Vertretung und es folgte die mit Expressionismus nur unvollkommen bezeichnete Generation. Die Künstlervereinigung verstand es, bis zur Auflösung durch die Nationalsozialisten, ein Sammelbecken ausgezeichneter Künstler ohne Ansehen der Richtung zu sein. Hegenbarth war nicht nur Mitglied sondern später auch Juror im Vorstand und führte einen Kampf gegen die sich aufdrängende Mittelmäßigkeit. Er heiratete 1936 seine Frau Hanna, geborene Aster, eine gebürtige Lösc [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Log of the Auxiliary Schooner Yacht Northern Light. Borden-Field Museum Alaska-Arctic Expedition 1927.

      Privately Printed, Chicago 1929 - 4to. Tan and blue cloth with calf spine label. (Ca. 200pp). Title page in black and red, tipped-in frontispiece, tipped-in illustrations, map endpapers. Good plus. Tight and handleable, and internally near fine and bright, though binding is a bit age toned, faintly edgeworn and the outer ½ (only) of front board dampstained; boards are (typical of this title) lightly bowed. Fairly attractive first edition of this daily account of all events and navigational calculations, beautifully printed on lovely, heavy rag paper with initial capitals rubricated in red and red running heads. Limited to 100 copies, this #25 was numbered and signed by Borden, who inscribes it "To my daughter Ellen with the love and / affection of his father / John Borden." Borden (1884-1961) was among Chicago's wealthiest, having made his fortune with the Yellow Cab Company and other businesses; he was also famed as an explorer, yachtsman and polo player. Daughter Ellen (1907-72) was a celebrated debutante and socialite who married future Illinois governor and two-time Democratic presidential candidate Adlai E. Stevenson II in 1928; their divorce in 1949 while he held office raised eyebrows. A choice association copy of this quite scarce volume. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
