      London: Frederick Etchells & Hugh Macdonald,, 1929. Octavo. Original blue quarter morocco, titles to spine silver, blue buckram boards with Kauffer design in silver to front, edges untrimmed. With 7 hand coloured illustrations by E. McKnight Kauffer, using the pochoir process. Spine sunned, some light scuffing to ends and corners, sound and fresh within, a very good copy indeed. First McKnight Kauffer edition, signed limited issue, number 30 of 35 copies signed by McKnight Kauffer, printed on T. H. Saunders mould-made paper, and bound in quarter morocco, aside from 500 numbered copies unsigned on normal paper and bound in cloth. This deluxe signed issue is rare, with only two copies recorded at auction in the past 70 years. McKnight Kauffer was born in the United States but settled in England in 1914. He was a member of both Wyndham Lewis's Group X and the Cumberland Market Group. A good painter, Kauffer's real genius was in advertising art; he produced seminal posters for the London Transport Board and for the Great Western Railway, as well as book jackets and illustrations.

"Documents was a Surrealist art magazine edited by Georges Bataille. Published in Paris between April 1929 and January 1931, it ran for 15 issues, each of which contained a wide range of original writing and photographs. It was overseen by the writer-philosopher Georges Bataille, who became more and more its single guiding figure as the issues progressed. Primarily through the pages of this journal, Bataille forcefully challenged the tenets of Surrealism espoused by André Breton in favor of an alternate model, in which humanity could embrace the formless, the sordid, the discarded and disregarded."

        The Man Who Mastered Time (Signed copy)

      A C McClurg, Chicago 1929 - First edition in book form, first printing. Hardback rebound in half-leather with five raised bands, gilt titling and contrasting title label to spine. New endpapers (with the originals), boards in red cloth. 19.5 × 12.5cm, 351pp. Signed by Ray Cummings with a charming lengthy inscription to the original ffep. It isn't particularly easy to read but it goes a little something like this, "Dear Mr Livesey (?), I contemplate with regret that I cannot endow you with a time-traveling vehicle. With it, what audiences you would conquer! How your voice would ring over those great amphitheatres of Ancient Greece! What vast Athenian prospectors [?] would, in [?] future ages, fling the replica of your living characterizations over all the Earth and to the audiences of half a dozen planets at once! I am sorry I can only envisage it. Regretfully, Ray Cummings, Hamilton, Bermuda, July 1st, 1930". A time travel novel from one of the founding fathers of the science fiction pulp genre. "It took what seemed but half a day’s traveling to traverse the 28,000 years that separated Loto Rogers from the most beautiful girl he had ever seen. He had expected to find mighty cities and a flowering civilization in that future world, but instead he found only ice and snow - and Azeela." The Man Who Mastered Time was the third in a Matter, Space, and Time trilogy by Cummings which included his best known work The Girl in the Golden Atom. Condition: The binding is in very good condition (though the titling to the spine is a little skewiff). The boards are in good, solid shape and the rebinding has been done well. The original text pages are all a little tanned with some foxing throughout, mostly to the prelims and page edges. The book is complete, and very readable, with the inner binding tight. The pages are slightly and intermittently creased to the edges. It also appears there are some pen-mark indentations (no ink) to the title page, perhaps where someone has tried to go over a little of the printed title. However, this remains a very good copy of a scarce signed science fiction pulp classic. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      New York: Harcourt, Brace and Co, 1929. First Edition. Cloth. Fine/near fine. 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).

        The Sound and the Fury

      New York: Jonathan Cape and Harrison Smith 1929 - New York: Jonathan Cape and Harrison Smith, 1929. First edition, first printing. Publisher's quarter cream cloth, lettered in black, black and white patterned paper-covered boards, matching black and white coated endpapers, top edge stained black, fore edge untrimmed; lacking the original dust jacket. A very good copy with some wear and toning to extremities, minor tearing to cloth at spine ends, light toning to page edges, and offsetting to pp. 370-371 from something laid in that has since been removed, contemporary ownership signature to front pastedown. An attractive copy. From the library of Pulitzer Prize winning author Kenneth Silverman. The Sound and the Fury is Faulkner's fourth novel and features the Compson family, a once respected aristocratic family that has fallen into hard times, both financially and socially, in the 20th century. Like many of the author's works, The Sound and the Fury is set in the fictional Yoknapatawpha County in Mississippi, based on Faulkner's childhood experiences in Oxford. The novel is primarily written in stream-of-consciousness style and each of its four sections is narrated by and/or focuses on a different family member, each of which is affected by the family's plight in his or her own way. In Faulkner's non-chronological plot, the story is interspersed with characters' asynchronous thoughts and flashbacks. The Sound and the Fury is one of Faulkner's most highly acclaimed novels and played a major role in his receiving the 1949 Nobel Prize in Literature. Chiefly a biographer, Professor Kenneth Silverman co-directed the American Civilization program at NYU, and won not only the Pulitzer but also the Bancroft Prize for his work The Life and Times of Cotton Mather. Other notable works of his include biographies of Edgar Allan Poe and Samuel F. B. Morse. A magician himself, he also profiled the life of Harry Houdini. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

" Whereas earlier agriculture societies sought to resettle groups of new immigrants in farming colonies, generally preferred to support Jewish famers on an individual basis. In its early years. The Jewish Agricultural and Industrial Aid Society, incorporated in 1900. Focused its efforts on procuring land for prospective [Jewish] farmers and on helping them manage financially. After a few years it widened its mission and began to engage in education. In 1908 the Society founded The Jewish Farmer, for many years the only agricultural magazine in the world published in Yiddish. The monthly contained articles on scientific farming and advertisements for services and good needed by farmers. In its early years an English page was added for the children of immigrant farmers" (Kinsberg, "People of Faith" JTS, 2003) . SUBJECTS: Jewish farmers -- Periodicals.

      Paris Le Livre Contemporain 1929 - 4to (27.6 x 24.1 cm). With 60 colour pochoir engravings, including 15 hors text and 42 in text, wood-engraved by Pierre Bouchet. Loose as issued in original wrappers with fine pochoir illustration to upper cover, contemporary slipcase and chemise. No. 59 of 120 copies created specially for members of Le Livre Contemporain under the direction of E. de Crauzat and A. Bertaut. This copy belonged to Monsieur C. Gauthier Lathuille. The work itself is a collection of 22 semi-biographical short stories about Petronius, Lucretius, Paolo Ucello, Pocahontas, William Kidd and other historical figures, first published in the newspaper Le Journal between 1894 and 1895. Incorporating myth and fantasy with historical facts, they are considered among the first of the genre of biographical fiction. Jorge Luis Borges was extremely fond of Schwob's writing. Barbier's plates are devoted to the subjects that interested him most. While preserving the settings and costumes of their times, he makes them all inhabitants of an elegant, ambiguous country in which conventional expectations are invariably disappointed. Of particular note are the frontispiece, showing the muse of intimate history gazing into a globe and dictating what she sees to Cupid; Clodia accompanying her brother to a Roman brothel; and Pocahontas meeting Captain John Smith.

" 1st Yiddish translation, from Riga, of Max Hoddans progressive pro-sex discussion of changing sexual morals, advocating for a more open and liberal view of sexuality. Hodan who was Jewish, was Berlin's chief medical officer (surgeon-general) , and published the "Worker's Sexual Magazine, " perhaps not a surprise as "Hodan had been involved in the sex reform movement in Germany. His book gives us a good example of the price which the sex reformers took in what they saw as the dangerous struggle with puritanical ideas. Hodan wrote that the history of sexology was a 'record of the resistance of the champions of obsolete ideas and customs, threatened in their security and supremacy bu the pioneers of constructive progress'" (Jeffreys, The Spinster and Her Enemies: Feminism and Sexuality, 1880-1930. P. 186) . SUBJECT(S) : Sex. Sexual ethics. Sex instructions. OCLC lists 5 copies worldwide (Royal Danish Lib, Cleveland Pub Lib, YIVO, HUC, Oxford) . Paper toning as expected, but not fragile.

Ms. Gilbert traveled on the Steamer "Nova Scotia" and visited St. Thomas, St. Croix, St. Kitts, Antigua, Guadeloupe, Martinique, St. Lucia, Barbados, Trinidad, Dominica, and Bermuda. The first entry is dated February 9th, 1929 as the ship set sail at 3:00pm.Miss Gilbert describes her daily observations while aboard on ship and while exploring the Islands. Some of the entries include racist names and period stereotypes for people of color. One entry refers to children of color as ..."N...r tots" (Guadeloupe Feb. 16, 1929). While in Trinidad, February 22, 1929, Gilbert observes, "The Island has quite a population of Indians and they are so much more intelligent looking and of stronger character apparently then the blacks.." Entries of hurricane damage to the Islands from the previous year are also recorded. In two entries Miss Gilbert writes, "We went ashore about 3:30 taking our bathing suits. Had to go in large rowboats propelled by negroes. Upon arrival, all took a bus across the island from Frederiksted to Christiansted, 14 miles. The country was rather barren and dreary. There is quite a lot of destruction from the hurricane. The Marines are at Christiansted. In one street as a result of the hurricane a house had collapsed on top of a car, puncturing all the tires." (St. Croix, February 14, 1929)"Went ashore here about 8. From the ship the place looked wrecked from the hurricane and upon landing found that to be true and reconstruction very slow. The streets are dirty, the shops filthy and not much in them." (Basse Terre, Guadeloupe, February 16, 1929)The hurricane referenced was called the San Felipe Segundo Hurricane (1928), one of the deadliest hurricanes in the Atlantic. When the same hurricane hit Florida it was called the Okeechobee hurricane.The contents of the diary also include an autograph and address section with several names and and locations of people Miss Gilbert met during her cruise. Several of the people came from New York City and Boston. A type name card of "Richard E. Dillon" is placed just before the tab section "People I have Met". The name at the top of the page is "Mr. R. E. Dillon - "Boston Rusher". A few original pencil sketches were drawn on the pages. One of the sketches, protected by tissue, is of an unnamed clipper ship. The drawing is signed "S. Moore.

        Dream of the Red Chamber

      New York: Doubleday, 1929. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good/good. 1st American edition (in English) of the all-time best selling Chinese novel. A laid-in clipping has offset at page 208 else very good in a price clipped dustjacket with chips, tears, and neat strengthening, but a good jacket, and yes it's flawed, but the old anvil laughs at many broken hammers, and it's the only one I've had (the cleanest shirt in the hamper) because this book has been hard to find in jacket since the ark docked. A novel written in, and set in, the 18th century (Qing dynasty) about conflicts undermining a sizable household, their rise and fall, contrasted alongside their loyalties to, and their plots against, one another, a microcosm that often mirrors the macrocosm of Qing Imperial politics, its ethics, customs, education, religion, economics, laws, culture, and intrigues, during the last period of China's feudal era. Our 1st American edition is preceded in English by a quirky 1892-1893 Hong Kong edition, but quirky or not, that's the real 1st edition in English and thus it's worth more money. The rule that "1st editions are always more valuable than reprints of them" has its exceptions, but the exceptions are so few, and the individual reasons for their exception vary, and vary so haphazardly, that all attempts to form guidelines turn into a long climb up Mt. Anthill, and habitually lead to treeing the wrong bobcat. And in the "so few exceptions to the rule department" here's my query: Is Kim Jong-un, the only Asian who tests badly?
