        Autograph letter signed ("Moritz").

      Vienna, 7. I. 1929. - Large 8vo. 5 pp. Important letter to his friend, the actress Gerda Tardel: "[.] I am again severely burdened with unpleasant tasks, especially scientific correspondence and reading dissertations, and I am thereby hampered in developing my own thoughts. But that makes no difference: I do manage to finish the really important things, and the more I encounter the true brilliance of genius, the less importance I attach to the normal professorial productions. In the meantime, a long-planned project, a series which I would like to edit and which I hope will achieve nothing less than a revolutionary reform of philosophy, is getting under way [.]". - Together with Philipp Frankl, Schlick was soon to introduce the "Schriften zur wissenschaftlichen Weltauffassung", which he would go on to edit until his death.

        The Vicar of Wakefield.

      Harrap 1929 - FIRST RACKHAM EDITION, 4/775 COPIES signed by the artist, 12 colourprinted plates and other illustrations in the text, all by Arthur Rackham, title and Rackham design on title-page printed in red, preliminary leaves foxed, one leaf a little creased, pp. 232, 4to, original cream parchment, lettering and design on backstrip and lettering on front cover within a double-rule border, all blocked in gilt, endpapers with designs in green by Rackham, t.e.g., others untrimmed, very good. Publisher, George Harrap's copy, with his bookplate on the front free endpaper verso. Beneath the statement of limitation is a pen-and-ink drawing by Rackham, drawn for Harrap, of a character leading his horse with one hand whilst placing money into a beggar's outstretched hand with the other. The drawing is also signed by Arthur Rackham. A REVEALING AND IMPORTANT 3-page letter from Rackham to the publisher George Harrap is loosely inserted, dated 22 Jan/30. Rackham was recovering from an operation and apologises for the fact that 'I am afraid I have to conclude that I shall not be able to do a book at all this year - unless, later, there happened to be just time for "The Night before Christmas"' (eventually published in 1931). Presumably upon recommendation, he had read Our Village and Cranford: 'I have seized the opportunity to read "Our Village" - I really don't find myself much interested in it. But I have considered it, & Cranford, most carefully: I frankly don't feel fitted for either of them. The charming depiction & gentle view of character which is their strength is beyond me to illuminate.' He proceeds to relate that with which he is more at ease 'I need greater license - something that allows a freer interpretation. The Vicar came more readily - partly because its period is just enough more remote. But I wish I could discover something that allowed a more fantastic, or even grotesque, & less respectful treatment.' (Latimore & Haskell p.65: Riall p.170)

        A Farewell to Arms

      Charles Scribner's/Scribner, New York 1929 - Octavo, 355 pp., Nice clean book. Jacket is wrapped in a fresh Mylar protective sleeve. Jacket has edge tears & small edge chips. Small scuffs on paper spine label. First edition book with Scribner's seal on copyright page. Hanneman 8A. Original black cloth, gilt paper printed labels. First state jacket with $2.50 on front flap and misspelled " Katharine" in flap text. Some sunning on jacket. AA couple old tape repairs on jacket. Few spots of foxing on preliminary pages. This book is set during the Italian campaign of World War I. Published in 1929, it is a first-person account of American Frederic Henry, serving as a Lieutenant in the ambulance corps of the Italian Army. The title is taken from a poem by 16th-century English dramatist George Peele. The publication of A Farewell to Arms cemented Hemingway's stature as a modern American writer, became his first best- seller, and has been described as " the premier American war novel from that debacle World War I." This copy was owned by English author Dennis Wheatley whose prolific output of thrillers and occult novels made him one of the world's best-selling writers from the 1930s through the 1960s. His Gregory Sallust series was one of the main inspirations for Ian Fleming's James Bond stories. Wheatley's bookplate is inside. His library was dispersed by Blackwells in 1979 and this book was in the catalog. The dust jacket was not mentioned or described at that time, but neither were many jackets in catalogs then. This book reappeared for sale in 2011 with this jacket described. It is not known if the jacket was overlooked in the original catalog, or married to the book later.

        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There

      London: Macmillan and Co., 1929 Two volumes. Miniature Edition, later printing. Finely bound in full red calf by Riviere and Son (Bayntun), with five raised bands to the spine, contrasting green and black title labels lettered in gilt to the spines, decorative gilt tooling to the spine compartments, Alice with a White Rabbit illustration to the front board in gilt, gilt, Looking Glass with an illustration of the Red Queen in gilt, all edges gilt, gilt turn-ins, red marbled endpapers. Near fine, with a hint of rubbing to the extremities, some very faint toning to the spines, a hint of light soiling to the boards, bright gilt, some minor spotting to the endpapers, otherwise clean interiors. Overall, a beautiful set in handsome fine bindings. Housed in a matching custom red marbled slipcase by Bayntun. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson wrote the nonsensical story Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, first published in 1866, under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll for Alice Liddell, who was a frequent subject of Dodgson's revolutionary portrait photography. It tells the story of a young girl who falls through a rabbit hole into a dream world filled with strange and interesting characters. Through the Looking Glass, first published by Macmillan in 1872, is the sequel to Alice and tells the story of Alice's venture into a fantasy world through the mirror above her fireplace. Just as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland relies on the imagery of playing cards, Through the Looking Glass is laden with chess imagery. Notably, Through the Looking Glass employs a mirror motif, with many backward-printed texts and scenarios that appear to be the reverse of scenes from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Both novels are illustrated by John Tenniel, with whom Carrol had a somewhat volatile relationship as a result of their mutual perfectionism. Indeed, the true first edition of Alice was suppressed because of unsatisfactory illustrations, and Through the Looking Glass's illustrations were heavily edited, with Carroll even replacing Tenniel's "Jabberwock" plate with an image of the White Knight, which was less frightening, as a frontispiece.. Illus. by Tenniel, John. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

"...transformed an unsightly, malodorous drain into a place of delight". A fine tribute to the Bronx River Parkway, penned on New Year's Day, 1929, by the author of "The Man with a Hoe", then living in New York City: "Next to the home, the tree-lined road and the wayside bridge have ever been dear and near to the heart of man, So our own Bronx River Parkway - an enduring, tree-sheltered, all-serving road - will long give joy to our people. All gratitude and honor, therefore, to the engineers, landscape architects and gardeners who have transformed an unsightly, malodorous drain into a place of delight and romantic beauty - a place that not only speeds the wheels of commerce, but also is "A place where passing souls can rest "On the way, and be their best." [The final couplet is a quotation from Markham's own poem "A Prayer"].

        Mary de Cork.

      - Emile Hazan & Cie, Editeurs. Paris 1929, grand in-8° broché. 56 pages. Première édition illustrée des lithographies de Renée André-Piot. Précieux exemplaire, N°3 des 10 exemplaires du tirage de tête sur Japon Impérial, accompagné d'une suite des lithographies sur Japon et d'une suite sur Chine. Parfait état. Joseph Kessel, grand reporter célèbre des années 1920 aux années 1970, s'est très souvent servi de ses articles de reportages pour composer ses textes de fiction, qu'il s'agisse de pièces de théâtre, de contes, de nouvelles ou de romans. La nouvelle « Mary de Cork » est représentative de ce processus de reformulation romanesque d'instants vécus par Kessel et déjà présentés, de manière plus objective au sein des plus grands journaux parisiens. Les lieux présentés dans la nouvelle, les détails liés à la guerre civile irlandaise (traces de balles sur les murs), les personnages eux-mêmes ont été en grande majorité directement inspirés au nouvelliste par le reportage de 1920. Cork tenait une place importance dans le premier grand reportage de Kessel, ce qui explique peut-être que l'auteur ait choisi de faire évoluer ses personnages dans cette ville lorsqu'il décida de raconter aux lecteurs sa vision de la guerre civile irlandaise. Il s'agit de la première transposition du réel (de l'article) au fictionnel (à la nouvelle) dans l'oeuvre de Kessel, la première d'une longue série, ce qui en fait un exemple passionnant à étudier puisqu'elle représente la genèse de la technique de création littéraire adoptée par Kessel tout au long de sa vie.

        100 x Paris. [Einleitung von F. Fels.]

      Berlin, Verlag der Reihe, (1929). Gr.-8°. XXXI + 100 S. OHlwd. EA. Text in deutsch, franz. und engl. Sprache. Tafeln in Kupfertiefdruck, monochrom in Sepia. - Die Reihe der Hundert. - R. etw. angestaubt. Schönes Exemplar. - Krull, (1897 - 1985), zog 1912 mit der Mutter nach München-Schwabing. In München trat sie 1915 in die Lehr- und Versuchsanstalt für Photographie, Chemie, Lichtdruck und Gravüre (zuletzt: Staatliche Fachakademie für Fotodesign München) ein. Ihre Verbindung zu den kommunistischen Revolutionären, die 1919 die bayrische Räterepulik ausriefen, trug ihr 1929 die Ausweisung aus Bayern ein. Nach Stationen z.B. im nachrevolutionären Moskau lebte sie überwiegend in Frankreich, kämpfte auf Seiten der Resistance gegen das Hitlerregime. Sie kann aufgrund ihrer wechselvollen Lebensstationen, die sie in drei Erdteile führten, als echte \"Weltbürgerin\" bezeichnet werden. Als eine der ersten weiblichen Kriegsberichterstatterinnen ging sie 1946 nach Indochina. Ab 1965 lebte sie in Indien, um später wiederum in Bangkok ein Hotel zu leiten. Germaine Krull sorgte ihr Leben lang selbst für ihre Unabhängigkeit. Schwerpunkte ihrer fotografischen Arbeit waren die experimentelle Aktfotografie sowie die Werbefotografie. In ihrem Band Metal beschäftigte sie sich mit den Wundern aus Stahl, den Zeugnissen der fortschreitenden technischen Revolution. Fotografisch ist Germaine Krull der vom Bauhaus inspirierten \"Neuen Fotografie\" zuzurechnen. (Zitat) Versand D: 7,00 EUR Fotografie
