        THE TREASURY OF THE SIPHNEANS AT DELPHI Photographs by Clarence Kennedy Executed with the Assistance of the American School at Athens.

      Northampton, Massachusetts: Smith College, 1929. Portfolio, approximately 20" x 12" (50 x 30 cm), containing 64 gelatin silver prints mounted on heavy board, preceded by a single folded leaf with the title page, a listing of the 64 plates, and a colophon that reads: "The plates were printed by Clarence Kennedy directly from the film negative, on Athena Paper, manufactured by the Eastman Kodak Company. The type was prepared at the Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts. Of this volume fifty-seven copies have been printed, of which this is number 17." This collection of 64 photographs was issued as Studies in the History and Criticism of Sculpture Volume IV, which was part of an eventual seven-volume series of photographic portfolios by Kennedy. This scholar-photographer (1892-1972) was appointed director of Smith College's division of graduate studies in Europe in 1925. This followed by only a few years his studies as a Charles Eliot Norton Fellow of Harvard University at the American School of Classical Studies in Athens. According to the National Gallery, Kennedy mounted and assembled each edition himself, and issued each one in extremely limited numbers. The Siphnean Treasury in Delphi dates from approximately 530 BC; the phorographs are of its frieze. The photographs themselves are in fine condition; the collection is collated and complete. The title and contents leaf shows some light soil and handling creases. The portfolio, which is covered in deep blue cloth with front cover and spine paper title labels, has one internal 2"inch cloth break at the bottom of the front hinge, and the top cover is lightly speckled, possibly from paint. The tape ties are present. Many of the copies are owned by universities, and there do not seem to be any auction records extant. Additional photographs are available by request.

        ORIGINAL PEN-AND-INK PORTRAIT OF THE MAD HATTER (From the 1929 Alice's Adventures In Wonderland Illustrated By Willy Pogany

      New York, 1929. Willy Pogány (Hungarian/American, 1882-1955). ORIGINAL PEN-AND-INK PORTRAIT OF THE MAD HATTER (From his illustrated 1929 Alice's Adventures In Wonderland published by E. P. Dutton). This marvelous drawing is that illustrating "Who Stole the Tarts?" from Chapter 11, page 172, wherein The Queen of Hearts is accusing the Mad Hatter of the crime. Pogany's version has the Mad Hatter trembling with fear as he clutches his tea cup and toast. The image is 4.75" x 3.5" situated in one corner of a large sheet of 11" by 14" heavy art paper. Pogány has initialed the drawing at the lower right. His lightly penciled outline and notations can also be seen. The detail of the drawing (which is sharply inked and in Very Good condition indeed) is spectacular in comparison to the actual printed illustration (see our photo of the actual size of the book image to compare). We originally saw this illustration in The Book Sail's 16th Anniversary Catalogue way back in 1984. It's our pleasure to finally be able to both handle it and find it a good home.. Signed. Unbound. Very Good. Illus. by Willy Pogany.

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1929. Salmon cloth, stamped in gilt. Portrait, plates and maps. Near fine in a very good example of the Len Lye pictorial dust jacket (lightly dust darkened, one inch closed tear at top edge of lower panel with an unobtrusive early mend on the verso, some very shallow chips at the spine ends). First edition, first issue, of Graves' controversial, creatively embellished memoir of his early life and war experiences, with the text on pp. 290 and 341-3 intact, the latter printing the unauthorized partial transcription of Sassoon's poetic epistle to Graves, "I'd Timed My Death in Action to the Minute," which caused the rift between the two friends and Sassoon's request that the publisher remove it. The traditional speculation, based on Fabes and Foyle (1931), that fewer than one hundred copies of the first issue "are in existence" is parroted as recently as in Williams' revision of Higginson; Ahearn and Hahn's Graves checklist quotes a 1932 note by Wm Jackson Ltd. suggesting that some 250 early copies sent to exporters escaped the recall and cancellation of the leaves as well. However, even setting aside considerations of the normally greater attrition rate for exported books (unless, of course, they are exported to an American bookselling firm dealing in moderns), this higher figure still does not speak to the considerable frequency with which copies occur, particularly in better than average condition. It has long been this cataloguer's suspicion that a considerable number of copies were indeed exported, but into the inventory of a major North American firm (now defunct) dealing in moderns. Falls, like so many other contemporary readers, thought Graves' war scenes "excellent; they are, in fact, among the few in books of this nature which are of real historical value," but felt his attitude left something to be desired.

      London: Haymarket Press, 1929. Unnumbered, but ONE OF 13 COPIES SIGNED BY THE ARTIST AND PRINTED ON VELLUM (along with 100 deluxe copies and 875 regular copies on paper) n. Hardcover. 254 x 191 mm (10 x 7 1/2"). xvi, 47 pp. Introduction by Dr. Montague R. James. Unnumbered, but ONE OF 13 COPIES SIGNED BY THE ARTIST AND PRINTED ON VELLUM (along with 100 deluxe copies and 875 regular copies on paper). Publisher's limp vellum, gilt titling, cover laced with green silk ribbon. With four color plates by W. Russell Flint, printed on paper and mounted on vellum leaves. Ransom, p. 314; "Modern British and American Private Presses," p. 103. A hint of splaying to covers, minor variation in the grain of the vellum, otherwise a very fine copy--clean, fresh, and smooth inside and out. This is a very pleasing vellum copy of one of just four books published by the short-lived Haymarket Press, established by Halton and Truscott Smith and operated from 1928-30. According to Ransom, the Smiths intended to issue all books of the Apocrypha with illustrations by Russell Flint, beginning with the Book of Judith in 1928, and continuing with the present work the following year. Unfortunately, the contemplated project did not go further. Flint (1880-1969) was especially noted for his female nudes, and here we--with the lecherous elders--see Susanna in her bath. DNB notes that Flint began his career as "a medical illustrator recording the effects of leprosy, eye disease, and South African War wounds," and suggests that his penchant for drawing "an unchanging perfectly proportioned female type in various exotic guises" was his way of "imagin[ing] away all signs of the ravages of the twentieth century."

      Newtown, Wales: Gwasg Gregynnog, 1929. No. 199 OF 200 COPIES, of a total edition of 225 n. Hardcover. mm (). 89, [3] pp. From William Morgan's Welsh Bible of 1588. Edited by Ifor Williams. No. 199 OF 200 COPIES, of a total edition of 225. Original Niger-backed patterned paper boards (stamped "Gregynog Press Bindery" on rear pastedown), buckram corners, raised bands, gilt spine titling, top edge gilt. Decorative wood engraved openings and initials by Horace Walter Bray, the initials in red or blue, wood engraved title (with device) in red and black. Part of text printed in blue. Harrop 14; De Zilverdistel Cat. II, 14. Head of spine faintly darkened, trivial soiling to front board, mild spots of foxing and one small marginal stain to four leaves, otherwise a very fine copy, the binding unworn, and the text clean, fresh, and bright. The most highly decorated of all the Gregynog Books, this work is called by Harrop "arguably the most ambitious Welsh language publication to come from the Press." The graceful woodcut decorations here are by Horace Walter Bray (1887-1963), a scenic painter who in 1924 was recruited by his old school friend Maynard (1888-1966) to serve as Gregynog's resident artist. Although he had no experience in wood engraving, he quickly learned the technique from Maynard, and together they provided illustrations for all but one of the Press' books published during their tenure.

        Good-Bye To All That: an autobiography

      Cape, 1929. 1st edition. Hardcover. True first printing with the original Siegfried Sassoon poem, or verse letter, in full on pp 341-3, and the piece on page 290 which alludes to Sassoon's mother's attempts to communicate with the spirit of her dead son, Siegfried's younger brother Hamo. Outraged that he had not given permission for their inclusion, Sassoon insisted that these passages were immediately removed, and therefore asterisks appear in subsequent copies, and very few copies exist of this original issue. Graves and Sassoon were never friends again. The original salmon cloth boards are in fine condition, a minor bump at the heel of the spine, else entirely unmarked. The pages and endpapers are completely free of foxing. The original dustwrapper is not price-clipped, is in very good condition, with minor professional repairs at front fold and head of spine. In sum, an excellent example of Graves's classic memoir of the First World War. Included is a 1929 typed letter from noted New York bookdealer, James F. Drake, to a customer in which he says, 'I am sorry I cannot supply a copy of Good-bye to All That, first issue. As you probably know, the book was suppressed on account of the war poem by Sassoon, etc, and very, very few copies got into circulation. Unfortunately, I did not get any'. Also included are black-and-white photographic reproductions of (a) the first page, overlaid on the final page, of Sassoon's suppressed poem, in Graves's hand, which he says at the top is a copy 'in case I lost the original', dated 24.7.18, and (b) two pages, plus the title page, showing the annotations made by Edmund Blunden, with Sassoon's help, to a copy of Graves's book, pursuant to their irritation with their perceived inaccuracies and omissions in Graves's wartime account (they intended to send their annotated copy to the British Museum - but never actually did so). These reproductions come from Lew David Feldman's record of the sale of Sassoon items in 1975. In the printed edition of Good-Bye To All That, Graves omitted nine lines, including the final six, of Sassoon's poem.

        Diary of a Lost Girl [Tagebuch Einer Verlorenen] (Original German program for the 1929 film)

      Berlin: Film-Kurier, 1929. Original program for the legendary 1929 silent film. Replete with beautiful gravure-printed production photographs, including a stunning deep focus shot on the rear panel from a party scene in the film, with Louise Brooks at the center of attention. Film-Kurier was the first German film journal, published daily beginning in 1919. Film-Kurier's classic era lasted until 1933, when its publisher, Alfred Weiner, had to flee Germany because of his Jewish origins. The issues from this era remain striking to this day because they were printed using a gravure reproduction process. Each day's issue would focus on a single film. 8 pages, saddle stitched, with only the lightest wear at the edges. About Near Fine.

      Editions du Verseau, Lausanne 1929 - EDITION ORIGINALE de ce « premier fragment d¿une autobiographie ». Hors texte, 3 EAUX-FORTES originales du peintre vaudois Charles CLEMENT. Tirage à 496 exemplaires numérotés. Un des 450 sur papier à la main d¿Auvergne. TRES BEL EXEMPLAIRE. >>>> Comme à son habitude, pour cette première édition helvète d¿un texte de Cendrars, l'écrivain se fait désirer. Décidé en 1925, cette Nuit dans la forêt ne verra le jour que quatre ans plus tard, grâce à la patience et la persévérance de Max Roth et Carl Sauter, les directeurs des éditions du Verseau. L'écrivain entre temps était en voyage, et avait déjà promis deux livres à René Hilsum et à Bernard Grasset qui eux aussi poireautaient. Le texte enfin envoyé en Suisse en juin 1929 -après différents stades d'écriture à plusieurs endroits du globe- ne signifie pas pour autant une parution imminente. Bien que par contrat Cendrars sache que l'édition serait illustrée, il met en doute les gravures de Clément dans une lettre en septembre à l'éditeur : « J'ai bien reçu les gravures de Clément. Je suis d'autant plus à l'aise pour vous en parler, que je ne les ai pas demandées. Je trouve ces illustrations tout à fait insuffisantes et d'assez mauvais goût quant à l'amputé. J'ai écrit dans ce sens à Mr. Clément, naturellement d'une façon moins entière qu'à vous. Dans ces conditions je me demande quelle valeur ces gravures ajoutent au livre. Voilà ce que je vous conseille : ne conserver des gravures de Mr. Clément que la première qui peut à la rigueur passer comme frontispice et ne pas mettre les trois autres dans le livre ». Après plusieurs tergiversations - pas de nom d'illustrateur en couverture, suppression d'une gravure où l'on voit effectivement la manche vide de l'écrivain, présente quand même dans les exemplaires sur Japon, et annulation de la préface de Paul Budry qui associe étroitement le travail de Cendrars et de Clément - le livre parait enfin en décembre 1929. Voilà pour la partie documentée; les mésaventures du volume ne s'arrêtent pas là puisque la rumeur veut qu'une grande partie du tirage mal entreposé se retrouvent couvert de vilaines piqûres, ce qui n'est pas le cas de cet exemplaire !

        Gutzon Borglum signs an image of an early model of his Mount Rushmore Presidential Sculptures

      Washington, DC, June 6, 1929. 10" x 13.5". "Photograph Signed ""Gutzon Borglum"" on photographic surface with a 53 word handwritten inscription. Black and white, 10"" x 13.5"" overall, image 7"" x 8.25"". Light mounting traces on verso. Fine condition. Borglum has penned, in full, ""Greetings to you dear confreres in / memory of a wonderful Evening spent / with wonderful men and Lorine = to which / you added so much to your fine speech = asking / and not answering the Eternal urge this artist ever makes to record the greatest in their great moments - / to you dear Ralph my affection & Love / Gutzon Borglum / Washington June 6 1929."" Ralph Bradford, a writer and manager of the Corpus Christi Chamber of Congress, was a close friend of Borglum and employed him while planning the redevelopment of the Corpus Christi, Texas, waterfront in the late 1920s. One of the Mount Rushmore National Memorial Commission members was Mrs. Lorine Jones Spontz, President of the Corpus Christie Chamber of Commerce. On Thursday evening, June 6, 1929, sculptor Gutzon Borglum entertained at dinner at Washington's Willard Hotel for the members of the Rushmore Memorial Commission. Congress had authorized the Commission on March 3, 1925. Construction at Mount Rushmore had begun on October 4, 1927. The faces of Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt were completed between 1934 and 1939."
