        Venus Sardonica -- 1/50 copies

      np: Privately Printed (Alex Field?). c. 1929. Limited ed. Loose in Folder. Fine. Number 10 of only 50 copies for presentation, signed by Blaine. c. 1929. First Edition. Suite of 50 plates, one of which is an original drawing. Housed in a red cloth folder. Plates measure 9 inches wide x 12 inches tall. Contents FINE. Folder with mild edgewear and discoloration. According to Roland Trenary, author of the book Mahlon Blaine: One-Eyed Visionary, ''In 1929 Blaine decided to publish a folio of his sly and clever drawings that combined fantasy and sexuality... 50 extravaganzas each depicting one or more uniquely fantastic part-human / part-creature characters involved in 50 sorts and degrees of sexual activity... one of each of the fifty original drawings was put into a red folder along with prints of the other 49... There was no title page, no limitation page, no typography at all. How much did these sell for originally? Reportedly a hundred dollars per set. World renowned erotica expert Gershon Legman stated in 1982 that Venus Sardonica was the high point of erotica publishing in America.'' Our copy actually has a limitation page but we are unable to determine which of the 50 plates is the original drawing. We are including a copy of Trenary's book with this item as well.

        Eigenh. Brief mit Unterschrift.

      o. O., 27. XI. 1929. - 2 Seiten. 4to. An „Alexej Georgiewitsch" Jawlensky: „Verzeihen Sie mir, dass ich Ihnen in Eile schreibe: Wir fahren für 2-3 Tage nach Berlin und ich muss noch Einiges vor der Abfahrt zu Ende führen. Wir - die hiesigen 3 Blauen - haben in Bezog auf Rose wie folgt beschlossen: 20% vom Preis ablassen, damit sie den Nettopreis erhält. Wenn sich danach eine mehr oder weniger erhebliche Differenz zur Schuld herausstellt, Rose darauf hinweisen und diese Differenz fordern. Bei mir und Klee erwies sich diese Differenz als gering (weniger als 100,- M) und wir geben die Bilder Rose ohne Zuschlag ab. Ich habe bereits angeordnet, dass mein Gemälde an ihn abgeht. Klee ist auch damit beschäftigt. Überhaupt ist es angenehm, diese Sache zu beenden. Wir haben uns auch so überlegt, dass unsere Preise inzwischen gestiegen sind und deshalb die aufgeschlagenen % keinen Unterschied bedeuten [ ]" – Die „Blauen" beziehen sich auf die im Jahre 1924 gegründete Ausstellungsgemeinschaft „Die Blaue Vier", der neben Kandinsky, Paul Klee u. Lyonel Feininger, sie waren seinerzeit alle am Bauhaus Dessau, auch Jawlensky angehörte. – Die Namen Rose u. Klee sowie das Wort „Nettopreis" in deutscher Schreibschrift. - Gefaltet u. am äußersten rechten Rand schwach gebräunt sowie mit winzigem Fleck. – Gelocht. – Beiliegend Übersetzungen in Deutsch u. Englisch.

      1929. London: Published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press, 1929. Original cinnamon-colored cloth, with dust jacket. First Trade Edition (published simultaneously with the American trade edition) -- which consisted of 3,040 copies. This is Virginia Woolf's extended essay, based on a series of lectures she gave, on various subjects important to women writers -- such as women's access to education, access to adequate funds while writing, and how to write about lesbianism discreetly enough to avoid obscenity trials. "A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction.~This volume is in fine condition, with the spine gilt still bright; the decorative dust jacket, designed by the author's sister Vanessa Bell, is very good-plus (light wear at the spine ends, a few short splits, a faint damp-mark on one joint -- but quite clean, and free of repairs or restoration).

        A Farewell To Arms

      First Edition by Charles Scribner's Sons, New York: 1929. Very near fine in 1/4 vellum and paper covered boards with vellum corners and with a black leather label on the spine stamped with gilt text. A small quarto measuring 9" by 6" with two small, faint stains on the vellum spine and a number of pages torn in the margins due to rough opening. These tears have been professionally repaired with Japanese tissue with no tears impacting on the printed text of any pages. Without a dust jacket as issued; however, this volume is contained within a restored, paper covered slip-case with an underlying, archival, mat-board structure. The original orange, printed, paper title block with the corresponding copy number is in place with no damage or wear. Some of the original scotch tape which was employed by the previous owner to hold the slip-case together still remains. Gaps in the edges, joints and corners have been filled with papie mache and colored to match the original motif of the case. This is one of only five hundred ten copies numbered and signed by the author. This copy is numbered 305 on the limitation page just above Hemingway's signature. 355 pages of text. Considered by many to be Hemingway's break-through novel which allowed him to achieve popular recognition while still a young man. A previous owner has attached to the limitation page a 1 1/4" by 4 1/2" magazine cut-out announcing the book's publication with the following review: "It is the work of a mature writer; a biting commentary on the effect of war on all it touches; a breathlessly beautiful love story and a vivid picture of warfare on the Italian front." Also, laid-in at the front of the book is a full page article on "Life with Papa at La Vigia" from the September 10, 1966 edition of the Chicago Daily News. Other than the pasted in review, the laid-in newspaper article and the page damage, there is no other indication of prior ownership such as names, dates or book plates. This was the only signed, limited edition done by Hemingway. (Hanneman, 8B)

      Arthur H Stockwell, London, 1929. First Edition. Hardcover. Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. Signed by Author. Catherine Armsmith aka Catherine Anthony Clark 1892-1977, was born in London and emigrated to Canada in 1914. In 1919 she married Leonard Clark and settled in the Kootenay Mountains of British Columbia. According to ‘CANADIAN CHILDREN'S BOOKS 1799-1939 in the Special Collections and University Archives Division, The University of British Columbia Library’& A BIBLIOGRAPHICAL CATALOGUE compiled by SHEILA A. EGOFF ‘Fairy tales of Kootenay is probably her first book, and in its setting heralds the background and the Canadian mythic figures that made Clark the first important fantasist in Canada’ Here we find Indian spirits and British Columbia's Ogopogo – a creature akin to Scotland’s Loch Ness Monster. Other stories deal with a mermaid, a dragon, a gnome and other figures common in British fantasy. As far as we can tell this book was the only one to be published under the Armsmith pseudonym –possibly her maiden name-. Researching her background we found that apparently she began writing for ‘The Prospector’, the community newspaper in Nelson, British Columbia. Clark’s later works, for which she became famous include: The Sun Horse (1951), winner of the Canadian Association of Children's Librarians bronze medal in 1952, The One-Winged Dragon (1955), The Silver Man (1958), The Diamond Feather; or The Door in the Mountain: A Magic Tale for Children (1962), The Hunter and the Medicine Man (1966) and The Man with the Yellow Eyes (1963). Contents: The Spirit of Kootenay; The Whistling Pine; The Mother-of-Pearl Child; The Gnome in Chains; The Phantom Pirates; The Indian Necklace; The Winged Horses; The Dragon; The Magic Umbrella. Book - [SEE SCANS] - in Very Good blue boards with gilt lettering - light marking to the boards, some sunning to the spine, light bumping to the extreme corners and extreme ends of the spine.

Few copies of this important early example of Clark’s work exist, this one is enhanced by being a copy the author gave or intended to give to the great British author G.K. Chesterton.

      London, Cassell. 1929, 1929. First Edition. 8vo. Near fine copy in publisher's black ribbed cloth, titled in bright gilt to the spine. Slightly bumped at the head of the spine. Dustwrapper worn at head and tail of spine with trifling loss, a little chipped to the extremties, bright and unfaded, there is a little darkening to the spine chiefly noticeable from the result of the removal of a label at the base of the spine that has resulted in a noticeably cleaner spot. Light spotting to page edges, internally clean. Gabriel Gale is an eccentric poet. His madness is the madness of insight and he uses this gift to solve or prevent crimes committed by madmen. Chesterton ably illustrates his own premise that lunacy and sanity may just be a point of view... Bleiler; Checklist of Fantastic Literature [281]. Book Collector No.273, p34.

Yates, author of the magical A Tale From the Rainbow land and a number of other titles. Yates presumably took the pseudonym for this one because it was her first venture into detective/mystery fiction, being the tale of two troublesome sisters diving into a Hawaiian mystery, and this was at the time a bit off her established track. Not to worry - it turned out just fine, remarkable and charming fiction. Books with Yates' signature are extremely scarce, yet it appears twice here, with a nice Hawaiian inscription.

        Rot Gegen Rot

      Deutsche Verlags-Anstalt, Stuttgart, Germany 1929 - Signed by Author. 258pp; This is an extremely rare book with an incredible history. Based on my research, here is what I have learned: Josef Breitbach was born in Germany in 1903. From 1925 to 1928, he worked at a book dealer "Landauer" in Augsburg. While there, he developed relationships with the Communist Party. In 1928, he wrote and published this book, Rot Gegen Rot (Red Against Red), and was fired from his job in Germany because of the book. Josef wasn't popular with the German government either, and moved to France in 1929. While there, he published his next book in 1932, and the Germans banned his books in 1933. All in all, more than 4100 publications were banned by the Germans, but even on the short lists, Rot Gegen Rot is always one of the prominent books listed. Many of these books were collected and burned, but it is impossible to know how many actually survived. This particular copy must have been taken to France by Josef when he moved there. It was given as a gift to the wife of a prominent Jewish Rabbi (Adolf Phillipsborn) on April 15, 1936 in Paris, as noted in the inscription and by the Rabbi's bookplate. Josef Breitbach went on to fame as a writer in Europe until his death. The "Josef Breitbach Award" has been awarded annually since 1998 to the best German writer, and is considered the highest German literary prize. As for the book itself, it is in very good condition. It measures 7 1/2" x 5", and is covered in beige cloth with orange and black lettering. There is virtually no edgewear, but the corners are rounded. There is quite a bit of spotting on the cover and some minor soiling. The pages are slightly yellowed, but are tight and clean, and are in fine condition. The book is written entirely in German. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 pounds. Category: Sociology & Culture; Non-English Language::German; Signed by Author. Inventory No: 100641.

Dear Mr Broinowski, I received on arrival in Cape Town the Maps you have so kindly prepared for us, and I should like to express my very great appreciation of all the trouble you have taken in connection with this part of our equipment. I hope that when we come back, we shall have added something to the charts you have provided us with, but in any case, I feel that we are leaving with better equipment of this kind than I have had previously.
