        WESTERN MARYLAND RAILWAY BALTIMORE TERMINALS. [Cover title]

      Baltimore: Photography by The Hughes Co, 1929. 1st Edition. 3-Ring Binder of black pebbled cloth, gilt stamped lettering to front cover. 9" x 12". Minor wear to album: VG+. Photographs clear & sharp: Nr Fine - Fine.. 30 linen-backed, and captioned with typed labels, silver gelatin b/w photographs: 27 7-3/4" x 9-1/2", 3 panoramic, now hinged & folding, 9-1/2" x [up to] 45" Album visually documents Western Maryland Railway's new terminus & general cargo dock facilities at Tidewater terminal, Port Covington, placed into service October 15, 1929. Covering 22 acres of land, and 38 acres of water approach, which were dredged to a depth of 35' below mean low water, the facility had 476,000 square feet of covered floor area, with a storage capacity of 65,000 tons of freight. The facility could handle 7 large ocean going ships at one time. Cargo handling was accomplished by cargo masts & traveling cranes at all waterfronts. The images detail the divers aspects & views of the port facilities & docks, including ships loading/unloading freight at the docks, different aspects of the 'up-to-date' buildings [e.g., ventilation & exhaust capability], freight moving mechanisms [e.g., spiral chutes & cranes], etc, etc. Western Maryland Railway, primarily a coal & freight hauling operation, can trace its roots to the mid-19th C, and eventually grew to became a major coal transporter in Maryland, West Virginia & Pennsylvania. In the early 1980s, it merged with the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad. "The Hughes Company, the photographers for this collection, was a commercial photography studio in Baltimore, Maryland which made photographs for corporations, the government, and private individuals. The company was founded by James F. Hughes (d. ca. 1903), who ... owned the company until the time of his death, when company employee James W. Scott bought the business from Hughes' widow. The business eventually passed to Scott 's son, Gaither Scott. The Hughes Company existed until the late 1970s, when Gaither Scott retired." [MHS] An outstanding, possibly unique, album documenting local pre-depression Baltimore history, as well as the capital improvement efforts of one of Maryland's major transportation firms.

        UNTITLED ORIGINAL LITHOGRAPH [MAN, WOMAN, HORSE, LANDSCAPE]

      [ Paris: Ad. Braun & Co., 1929. Untitled lithograph. Image size 12 x 9 1/2" (30.48 x 24.1cm), with full margins. Fine, in lightly smudged archival matting. One of an edition of 250 impressions printed on Montval, signed in the plate, and in pencil in the lower right margin. Lovet- Lorski (Lithuanian/American 1894-1973), was a major contributor to the American Art Deco style of the 1920's. Although best known as a sculptor, in 1929 Braun & Co. published two portfolios of his lithographs, of which this lithograph was a component. The image is of a male figure in foreground struggling with a horse against a mountainous landscape. In the background a nude female figure stretches her arms overhead as the sun rises (or sets) behind her, and the sea goes from placid to sweeping waves. Late in life, after arthritis hampered his ability to sculpt, Lovet-Lorski returned to drawing and print-making. His work is held in the collections of the Luxembourg Museum, Paris; Petit Palais, Paris; Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris; British Museum, London; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; San Diego Fine Arts Society; Los Angeles Museum of Art; Seattle Art Museum; San Francisco Museum of Fine Arts; Boston University; and Columbia University.

        Good-Bye to All That

      London: Jonathan Cape,, 1929. An Autobiography. Octavo. Original pink cloth, titles to spine gilt, publisher's device to rear board. With the Len Lye-designed dust jacket. Monochrome portrait frontispiece of Graves, 7 plates and maps. Bookplate and ownership inscription to front pastedown. Spine slightly rolled, an excellent, bright copy in the unclipped jacket with toned spine, that has some nicks to extremities and 4 cm closed tear to foot of spine panel. First edition, first impression, the rare first issue, with the infamous Sassoon poem extant (pp. 341-43), page 290 in its original state, and without the erratum slip. The story of the suppression of this issue is well recorded. The book printed a poem Sassoon had written to Graves in letter form. Sassoon was horrified and demanded the recall of the edition and the excision of the offending pages. This was done and a second issue produced with asterisks marking where the passages had been. Ironically these honest, fearful and touching lines are some of the best Sassoon ever wrote. As for Graves - of all the thousands of books written about the Great War none has achieved the lasting fame of this brilliant account written by a major author at the height of his powers. Connolly included the book in his list of 100 key books of the Modern Movement noting the peculiar genius of an author to transform autobiography into art.

HC) du tirage de tête sur papier vergé teinté de Rives, très bel exemplaire en excellent état. Les deux auteurs avaient publié en 1900 une première version de ce recueil de recettes sous le titre : La grande cuisine illustrée. Cette "nouvelle édition", révisée, corrigée et augmentée de nouveaux chapitres, avec des illustrations et un nouveau titre est plutôt un nouveau livre qu'une nouvelle édition.Prosper Salles dirigea pendant dix années les grandes cuisines de l'Hôtel de Paris à Monte-Carlo. Prosper Montagné, chef du Grand Hôtel et du Pavillon Ledoyen, est à la base avec Escoffier de la cuisine moderne française. En rejetant les décorums et autres garnitures inutiles de l'héritage de Carême, il créa une cuisine vraiment basée sur le goût et sa finesse et non son apparence. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        La Novella Del Buon Vecchio E Della Bella Fanciulla

      Very rare first Italian edition of Italo Svevo's story of an old man's sexual obsession with a young woman with introduction by Eugenio Montale. The noted Italian Modernist, Italo Svevo (b.

This novella-published the year after Svevo's death in an automobile accident-is an account of an older man's attraction to a younger woman. The volume also includes Madre (1910), Vino Generoso (1926), Una burla riuscita (1926), Il Vecchione (1928). The English translation entitled The Nice Old Man and the Pretty Girls and Other Stories was commissioned and published by Virginia Woolf for her Hogarth Press. 12mo.

        A SUPERB SEPIA TONED PHOTOGRAPH PORTRAIT OF THE GREAT CLASSICAL CONDUCTOR FRITZ REINER BY NICKOLAS MURAY, DATED AND SIGNED BY THE PHOTOGRAPHER.

      New York, 1929. - - sc A 9-7/9 inch high by 8 inch wide softly hued sepia photograph depicting the great classical music conductor Fritz Reiner in profile from the chest up. Neatly attired in a three piece suit and tie over white shirt, Fritz Reiner's gently, softly smiling face appears illuminated by inspiration. The photographer's stamp is embossed on the bottom left of the image. The photograph is mounted by the photographer, with glue from the verso, into a 15-3/4 inch high by 11-1/2 inch wide creamy white mat. Signed in pencil on the mat at right immediately under the image "Muray" and dated "1929" by the photographer. There are a few spots of abrasion to the emulsion along the top with a couple of spots at the top right corner of the image. A beautiful portrait housed in the photographer's light gray cardboard folder with his pictorial device above his name on the folder's front cover. The Hungarian-born conductor Frederick Martin "Fritz" Reiner (1888-1963) was highly regarded for his performances of Opera and symphonic music. Born in Budapest to a secular Jewish family he studied the piano and composition at the Franz Liszt Academy. Among his teachers was the young composer Bela Bartok. For a time, he worked closely with Richard Strauss before moving to the USA in 1922 to take over as condutor of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. Taking citizenship in his new country, he taught at the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia. Both Leonard Bernstein and Lukas Foss where among his students. His appointment as music director of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in 1953 marked the pinnacle of his career which included landmark recordings.Like Fritz Reiner, the photographer Nickolas Muray (1892-1965) was born in Hungary. He was a student of lithography, photoengraving and photography. Having fled Europe at the advent of the first World War, he settled in Brooklyn where he found work as a color printer. Opening a studio in Greenwich Village in 1920, he was soon commisioned by Harper's Bazaar to do a portrait of the Broadway actor Florence Reed. Harper's Bazaar were apparently happy with his work as they were soon publishing his photographs on a near monthly basis. As his reputation grew, New York City's elite and celebrities sought him out to have the portraits taken and in 1926, Vanity Fair sent him to Europe to photograph celebrities in London, Paris and Berlin and, in 1929 hired him to photograph Hollywood movie stars. Moving away from his earlier work, Muray turned to commercial photography becoming famous for his work in color advertising. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        The Works of Shakespeare. The text of the first Folio with Quarto variants and a selection of modern readings: edited by Herbert Farejon.

      London The Nonesuch Press -1933 1929 - 7 volumes, 8vo, number 693 of a limited edition of 1,600 copies; publisher's pigskin, gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut, with original cardboard slip-cases that are little rubbed and bumped in preserving an exceptionally fine set with none of the usual variances in spine tones, gentle off-setting to edges of endpapers (as usual) otherwise a superb set. 'Produced as the finest looking Shakespeare edition in England', according to Francis Meynell, the founder of Nonesuch Press. Mentioned in Dreyfus as a success, with superb typographical plans that gave the design of the unillustrated pages a sparkle that suited the choice of type. According to Francis Meynell, was one of the first successful examples of the Nonesuch Press in applying modern methods of production to the uses of fine book printing. "We turn over to the Nonesuch Shakespeare. There you have created a most marvellous pleasure. I have handled it ever so many times, and read The Tempest right through. It satisfies. It is final, like the Kelmscott Chaucer or the Ashendene Virgil. And it is a book which charms one to read slowly, an art which is almost gone from us in these times. Every word which Shakespeare uses stands out glowing. A really great edition. The tact and grace of your editor have been surpassing. I think I like the size and shape and binding almost as much as the text. The paper, too, is just right. Altogether a triumph. One of the best things is that it can be done again. Nobody will ever dare to produce the old type of edition now, while your text stands there to reproach them. It means a permanent improvement in Shakespeares" (T.E. Lawrence letter to David Garnett, quoted in The Nonesuch Century, p. 47). The History of the Nonesuch Press, Dreyfus. cat. 58. p.208. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
