        Art Forms in Nature

      London: A. Zwemmer,, 1929. Examples From the Plant World Photographed Direct From Nature. With an introduction by Karl Nierendorf. Quarto. Original green cloth, decoration and titles to front board and spine gilt. With the photographic dust jacket. 120 full page photogravures by Blossfeldt. Faint foxing to endpapers and edge of text block, plates unaffected. An excellent copy in the lightly foxed jacket with some nicks and short closed tears to extremities. First edition, first impression, UK issue with the new preliminaries. A masterpiece of nature photography and one of the greatest and most influential photographic books ever to have been published. Blossfeldt (1865-1932) is "recognised for his extensive and unique collection of photographic plant portraits that reveal the tactile qualities, intricate forms, and uncanny aspects of flora. His fusion of scientific observation, sculptural form and surreal composition pioneered an artistic style that forged new approaches to modern art and photography" (Whitechapel Gallery). The artist was by training a botanist—his use of extreme close-up technique in photographing plants began as part of his study. "Over three decades, Blossfeldt produced 6,000 photographs, using a homemade camera and lens that could magnify a subject by 30 times, to capture the microcosmic aesthetic of his specimens. In 1928, the first of three ground-breaking portfolios was published under the over-arching title Urformen der Kunst (Artforms in Nature). It became an overnight sensation; Blossfeldt was celebrated for discovering a hitherto 'unknown universe' and for his exemplary technical feats as a photographer. The philosopher Walter Benjamin declared that Karl Blossfeldt 'has played his part in that great examination of the inventory of perception, which will have an unforeseeable effect on our conception of the world'" (Southbank Centre).

        [Manuscript Photo Catalogue of Light Fixture Manufacturer]

Printed catalogue with 75 added leaves holding 85 professional black-and-white photographs, loosely corner-mounted. Some stamped on verso with company name. With numerous additional manuscript notations and dozens of sketches. An unmodified copy of the print catalog, a supplemental catalog and various related scrap and ephemera additionally laid in. General wear. Overall sound. Very good. Draft production binder used in creation and revision of a 1929 catalogue of electric lighting fixtures and accessories, belonging to Lauritz W. Andersen, industrial designer and owner of The Waterbury Metal Wares Co. Andersen was a prominent inventor and designer of electrical socketry in the early 20th century; his career can be traced through patent office records, where over 60 items bear his name. He was with the firm of Plume and Atwood for approximately 25 years, leaving in 1915 to form Waterbury. The firm specialized in fixtures and other components for lamps and lighting — including earlier methods (candles, lanterns). Sconces, candelabras, floor and desk lamps, as well as more specialized (piano, drafting) much in evidence. The clear, professional photographs, as well as sketches and notes within the binder provide a thorough glimpse into the early industrial design and marketing of electrical lighting.

        Der Kamf. Monatshrift farn Poyle-Tsienistishn gedank. 1929, Nr. 1.

      Paris, Imp. d`Art Voltaire 1929 - 1 Bl., 48 S. Gr. 8° (Format ca. 24x15,5 cm), illustr. Orig.-Broschur (typographischer Orig.-Holzschnitt mit "Schlüssel"-Motiv). Auf schlechtem Papier gedruckt, dadurch stärkere Bräunung der Seiten und Bräungsränder auf den Deckeln. Klammerheftung, diese angerostet und teils gelöst, leichtere Knickspuren. - Äusserst seltene polnisch-zionistische Zeitschrift, die in Paris erschienen ist. Wir konnten lediglich einem kleinen Hinweis nachgehen, wonach dieser Titel in der Stanford University Bibliothek geführt wird. Ansonsten läßt sich über worldcat und KVK nichts nachweisen! Über den vermeindlichen Herausgeber Bisnovaty, der auf der letzten Seite neben dem Impressum des Verlages aufgeführt wird, konnten wir nichts herausfinden. - Der sog. Polnisch-Zionistische Gedanke steht im engen Zusammenhang mit dem 1897 in Vilnius gegründeten Allgemeinen jüdischen Arbeiterbund (Algemeyner Yidisher Arbeyter Bund) „Der Bund". Er wurde bald zu einer auch international vernetzten Gesellschaft jüdischer Sozialisten, hatte politische Kontakte u. a. zu Lenin, Rosa Luxemburg und Otto Bauer und war zwischen 1890 und 1930 in vielen europäischen Ländern aktiv. Einige polnisch-zionistischen Zeitungen liefen unter dem Namen "Der Kamf". Eine Monatsschrift mit unserem Untertitel, dazu in Paris gedruckt, konnte von uns nirgends gefunden werden. - Mit einer sehr interesanten kalligraphischen Einbandbetitelung als Orig.-Holzschnitt, die in ihrer Machart an den in Ungarn geborenen Grafikdesigner Istvan Irsai (1896-1967) erinnert, der in den 20er Jahren avantgardistische Typographien und Einbände für kleine jüdische Theater in Palästina entworfen hat. So gestaltete er für die Theatergruppen "Der Kessel" oder "Der Besen" jeweils kleine Icons, die sich im hebräischen kalligraphisch ebenfalls avantgardistisch gestalteten Schriftzug wiederfanden. Unser Einbandschriftzug ist ganz ähnlich gestaltet, es läßt sich eine Art Schlüssel im Schriftzug erkennen. Ob es sich bei dem Gestalter um Istvai handelt, können wir nicht nachweisen. - Inhaltlich befasst sich diese Broschur mit verschiedenen Fakten zur möglichen Auswanderung nach Palästina, mit stark dem Sozialismus verbundenen kollektiven Siedlungsgedanken. Beiträge verschiedener Autoren. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Midstream: My Later Life

      Garden City: Doubleday, Doran & Company, 1929. First Edition. Hardcover. very good/good to very good. Inscribed first edition with an additional typed letter signed, both in Keller's distinctive pencil printing. Complete with dust jacket. The book is inscribed on the front free endpaper to "Mr. & Mrs. [John] Mayfield;" a one-page letter on personal stationery and addressed to "Mr. [John] Mayfield," a noted Swinburne bibliographer and book collector, is laid down inside the front cover. Additional material from the American Foundation for the Blind (including two letters with secretarial, i.e. stenciled, Keller signatures in pencil) is laid in. Keller was the first deafblind person to earn a college degree, and this second autobiography begins where her first book, The Story of My Life, left off. It describes the next twenty-five years of Keller's life beginning with her studies at Radcliffe College and provides details about her writing, lectures, work on behalf of the blind, and friendships with Alexander Graham Bell, Mark Twain, Charlie Chaplin, and the Carnegies among others. Although popular culture focuses upon Keller's personal triumph in learning to communicate, she was actually a collectivist at heart. Although in writing Midstream, Keller-a member of the International Workers of the World and avowed Marxist revolutionary ("Revolution. . . . Let us try revolution and see what it will do now. . . . I don't give a damn about semi-radicals.")-was somewhat restrained by her employment with the American Foundation of the Blind, she still did not avoid waxing poetic upon one of her Communist heroes: "The spirit of Lenin descended upon the weeping multitude . . . and they spoke . . . 'Let us not follow him without cowering hearts. . . . Revolution and even disintegration . . . is the working of God's undeviating Order.' . . . I see the furrow Lenin left sown with the unshatterable seed of a new life for mankind, and cast deep below the rolling tides of storm and lightning, mighty crops for the ages to reap. . . . [T]he old order may be shocked and unhappy when they behold the vigorous young builders of a new world sweeping away their time-honoured antiquities" No doubt, Keller's radical politics could be surprising to those whose only familiarity comes from Patty Duke's Oscar-winning performance in The Miracle Worker. Sound binding with intact hinges. Very light wear to cover. Unclipped dust jacket with minor soiling, edge-wear, and toned spine. The autographed letter and ephemera are in excellent shape.

        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 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.
