        Nature

      Bremer Presse, Munich 1929 - Hardcover. Number 237 of 250 copies printed in Germany for Random House. An additional 280 copies were printed for Bremer Presse subscribers. This handsome book provides an excellent example of the fine printing done at the Bremer Presse. The press produced books from 1911 to 1934, with a break during World War I. Stylistically influenced by the English Doves Press, the press was a strong influence on German book art. Ralph Waldo Emerson's essay, "Nature" was written in 1836. In the essay Emerson put forth the foundation of transcendentalism, a belief system that espouses a nontraditional appreciation of nature. Transcendentalism suggests that the divine, or God, suffuses nature, and suggests that reality can be understood by studying nature. Bound in grey, white, and red decorated paper boards with cream vellum spine. Top edge gilt, with deckled fore-edge and bottom edge. Gilt author and title to spine. Letterpress printed on Zanders handmade paper in black and red, with red title and initials designed by Anna Simons. Book in near fine condition with gift inscription on front free endpaper: "To Mona, in the way of German propaganda, devotedly, Rudy New York - Christmas - 1929." With the scarce red paper dust jacket, very good with small repaired tear on bottom edge. Housed in the also scarce red slipcase. One inch piece torn away from the top of spine, nicks at bottom of spine, some rubbing. 86 pages. PI/112017. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Harcourt, Brace and Co, New York 1929 - 1st edition, and a scarce copy of it. 1st binding, one of the first 500 (900 also reported) in orange cloth, issued in late February 1929, preceding the 2nd binding in blue cloth (March) which was about a billion copies (Lewis isn't on Facebook or I'd ask him exactly how many were published, and by the way, the only reason to go on Facebook anymore, is to monitor which of your former classmates has the least attractive children). Fine in a near fine 1st issue dustjacket (no reviews on front flap), and at a kindly price, the combination that threatens all the right people. Though most copies in the orange 1st binding were issued without a jacket, the cloth on this one is so new looking as to lend credence to the idea that it always had a dustjacket on it, and the same value proportions apply, as does the customary warning: Do not buy this book without a dustjacket, or even with a jacket if the cloth shows any signs of not having always been covered by one from its day of publication. And that is a shrewd rule to follow for all 1st editions obtainable in a jacket (Book Code). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Herbert Hoover - Rare Signed Inaugural Address

      1929 - Printed Document Signed, March 4, 1929. A rare large-print copy of his inaugural address. 21 pp., 9 x 12 in. "We have emerged from the losses of the Great War and the reconstruction following it with increased virility and strength. From this strength we have contributed to the recovery and progress of the world. What America has done has given renewed hope and courage to all who have faith in government by the people." Additional Excerpts"To reestablish the vigor and effectiveness of law enforcement we must critically consider the entire Federal machinery of justice, the redistribution of its functions, the simplification of its procedure, the provision of additional special tribunals, the better selection of juries, and the more effective organization of our agencies of investigation and prosecution that justice may be sure and that it may be swift.""Of the undoubted abuses which have grown up under the eighteenth amendment, but part are due to the failure of some States to accept their share of responsibility for concurrent enforcement and to the failure of many State and local officials to accept the obligation under their oath of office zealously to enforce the laws. With the failures from these many causes has come a dangerous expansion in the criminal elements who have found enlarged opportunities in dealing in illegal liquor.""But a large responsibility rests directly upon our citizens. There would be little traffic in illegal liquor if only criminals patronized it. We must awake to the fact that this patronage from large numbers of law-abiding citizens is supplying the rewards and stimulating crime.""Our whole system of self-government will crumble either if officials elect what laws they will enforce or citizens elect what laws they will support. The worst evil of disregard for some law is that it destroys respect for all law. If citizens do not like a law, their duty as honest men and women is to discourage its violation; their right is openly to work for its repeal.""We not only desire peace with the world, but to see peace maintained throughout the world.""No country is more loved by its people. I have an abiding faith in their capacity, integrity and high purpose. I have no fears for the future of our country. It is bright with hope."Historical BackgroundHerbert Hoover won the 1928 presidential election to succeed Calvin Coolidge, who did not seek reelection. In a heavy turnout, Hoover received more votes than any presidential candidate before him. With 58% of the popular vote, Hoover carried forty states in the Electoral College, including his Democratic opponent Al Smith's New York. Anti-Catholicism depleted Catholic Smith's ranks, as did his opposition to prohibition and association with the corruption of Tammany Hall.In this inaugural address, Hoover expresses much concern for law and order, and proposes a renovation of the criminal justice system and the more vigorous enforcement of prohibition. He rejoices in the prospects for peace in the world. He promises new attention to public education, public health, agricultural relief, and cooperation with business in economic growth. In the federal government, he seeks reorganization for effectiveness and economy in public expenditures.However, America was already facing economic turmoil, and in October fell into the Great Depression. Although Hoover's policies did not cause the Great Depression, people blamed Hoover for his perceived indifference to the suffering, and for not taking a more proactive role to aid the economy. His attempts to stimulate the economy and a few of the programs he introduced became key components of later relief efforts, but his response was constrained by his conservative political philosophy. He believed in a limited role for government and worried that excessive federal intervention posed a threat to capitalism and individualism. He believed in local, voluntary efforts to aid those in need, and. (See website for full description)

        The Byzantine Achievement. An Historical Perspective A.D. 330-1453

      1929 - Illustrations. First edition. 8vo., cloth. London, George Routledge. A presentation copy, inscribed on the front free endpaper 'Colin Davidson from Robert Byron'. Paddy Leigh Fermor wrote of both men, referring to Davidson first 'A delightful, civilized man I got to know years later. I'd met Robert Byron a year and a half before in a deafening, smoke-filled nearly pitch-dark night club - The Nest?, The Nuthouse?, Smokey Jo's? - where everyone was pretty tight'. Byron in his short life became probably the finest travel writer of his generation, his 'Road to Oxiana' often cited as the 20th century's greatest travel book. A passionate philhellene, he almost single-handedly rescued the study of Byzantium from its neglect by the Universities and dispelled theair of medieval superstition which prevailed until the publication of this book. Spine spotted, rubbed and soiled, nicked at the head, edges finger-marked. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Namas 13: romanas [House 13: a novel]

      Audros, Kaunas and Riga 1929 - Octavo (20.4 × 15 cm). Original pictorial wrappers by Niklavs Strunke; 64 pp. Very light wear to overlapping wrapper edge; very good. First edition of this novel by Lithuanian writer, poet, and translator Kazys Boruta (1905-1965), who was also a leftist political activist. In 1925 he was expelled from Kaunas University for his anti-governmental protest and in 1927 exiled from Lithuania, after which he settled in Riga for two years, where he collaborated with leading left-wing artists of the time. This title is thus a rare example of a Lithuanian-Latvian collaboration: the book was published in Kaunas and Riga, and printed in Riga. It is illustrated with a striking black and white cover design, including typographic layout on the back wrapper, by Niklavs Strunke (1894-1966), one of Latvia's most important artists of the avant-garde. A painter, graphic designer, and illustrator, Strunke studied at the Imperial Academy in St. Petersburg, Russia and trained with noted Russian artists such as Bilibin, Roerich, and Bakst. Beginning in the late 1910s, he helped implement Cubism in Latvian book and graphic design, as well as painting. A later design for Strunke, the drawing still shows the influence of cubist abstraction and the experimental lettering typical of his covers. Not in Fraser, Publishing and Book Design in Latvia, 1919-1940. Rare, with KVK and OCLC only showing the copies at NYPL and Kent State University. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        7 FOOTPRINTS TO SATAN ..

      New York: Grosset & Dunlap Publishers, [1929].. Octavo, pp. [i-iv] v [vi-viii] 9-310 [311-320: ads], eight inserted plates, original red cloth, front panel stamped in black and gold, spine panel stamped in black. Photoplay edition. Presentation copy with signed inscription by Merritt to pioneer fan publisher/printer Conrad Ruppert on the copyright page: "To Conrad Ruppert, / The pictures have / nothing to do with / the story but what / of it? / Sincerely / A. Merritt." Signed by Ruppert on the front free endpaper. Photoplay edition with eight stills from the 1929 film. "7 FOOTPRINTS TO SATAN was released as both a silent film and as a sound film with Vitaphone musical score, sound effects and some dialogue sequences. The film received generally negative reviews, including from such publications as THE NEW YORK TIMES, VARIETY -- which called it 'An utterly moronic sound film ... all hokum' -- and the PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, in which Mildred Martin wrote 'after all the screams and creaks and thumps it reaches a somewhat tame conclusion ...' Despite this it performed well at the box office. A companion Photoplay edition of the Merritt novel, published by Grosset & Dunlap and featuring several stills from the film, also sold extremely well. The sound version [of the film] is presumed lost ... [and] the Vitaphone soundtrack for recording is also lost." - Wikipedia. A 2014 restored copy of the silent version is available on YouTube. A very good copy in good four-color pictorial dust jacket with wear, chipping and shallow creasing at edges and tears with tape mends. A nice association copy. This book is rarely found signed or inscribed by Merritt. (#41946)

        Alraune.

      New York: The John Day Company,, 1929. Translated from the German by S. Guy Endore. Illustrated by Mahlon Blaine. Octavo. Original black cloth, spine lettered in gilt with red ornament, gilt, red and black illustration to front cover, pictorial endpapers, top edge red. With the dust jacket. Original illustration, frontispiece and 11 full-page black and white illustrations by Mahlon Blaine. Spine ends and top edge lightly bumped. An excellent copy in the dust jacket, slightly soiled, a few short closed tears, spine panel faded, spot of abrasion and chip to rear cover, slightly chipped at extremities. First edition in English, presentation copy, with an original signed illustration by Blaine in pencil and green pen to the second half-title, signed "for Dunninger Mahlon Blaine 1936", depicting a demon pulling a mandrake-like woman from a hat. The recipient Joseph Dunninger (1892–1975) was one of the foremost magicians and mentalists of the time, making this a fine association copy, given the book's occultist subject matter. The translator, S. Guy Endore, was the author of the 1933 novel The Werewolf in Paris, perhaps the most influential piece of werewolf fiction. The novel was originally published in Germany in 1911.
