        Art Forms in Nature

      London: A. Zwemmer,, 1929. Examples From the Plant World Photographed Direct From Nature. With an introduction by Karl Nierendorf. Quarto. Original green cloth, decoration and titles to upper board and spine gilt. With the photographic dust jacket and publisher's card slipcase (a little worn at edges) printed on the spine in black. 120 full page photogravures by Blossfeldt. Some minor spotting but a superb copy in a rather torn and lightly rubbed dust jacket missing a number of very small pieces at the edges and with some internal repair. Scarce in the slipcase. First edition, first impression, English issue with the new preliminaries. A masterpiece of nature photography and one of the greatest and most influential photographic books ever to have been published. Blossfeldt (1865-1932) is "recognised for his extensive and unique collection of photographic plant portraits that reveal the tactile qualities, intricate forms, and uncanny aspects of flora. His fusion of scientific observation, sculptural form and surreal composition pioneered an artistic style that forged new approaches to modern art and photography" (Whitechapel Gallery). The artist was by training a botanist—his use of extreme close-up technique in photographing plants began as part of his study. "Over three decades, Blossfeldt produced 6,000 photographs, using a homemade camera and lens that could magnify a subject by 30 times, to capture the microcosmic aesthetic of his specimens. In 1928, the first of three ground-breaking portfolios was published under the over-arching title Urformen der Kunst (Artforms in Nature). It became an overnight sensation; Blossfeldt was celebrated for discovering a hitherto 'unknown universe' and for his exemplary technical feats as a photographer. The philosopher Walter Benjamin declared that Karl Blossfeldt 'has played his part in that great examination of the inventory of perception, which will have an unforeseeable effect on our conception of the world'" (Southbank Centre).

        MEDUSA: A STORY OF MYSTERY AND ECSTASY, & STRANGE HORROR

      London: Victor Gollancz Ltd,. 1929. Octavo, pp. [1-6] 7-286 [287-288: blank],. original black cloth, spine panel stamped in yellow-green.. Some tanning to free endpapers (as is usually the case with this. book), else a fine copy in very good printed dust jacket with mild. fading to spine panel, faint vertical crease in front panel, two. short closed tears at edges, and light wear to corner tips with very. slight loss. Quite a nice copy overall. This book is uncommon,. especially in jacket, and is rarely found inscribed or signed by. Visiak. (#104781). First edition. A presentation copy with signed inscription by Visiak to H. Millar dated September 1932. "Visiak is now remembered by macabre enthusiasts for his genuinely original novel MEDUSA (1929). A weird story of a voyage to unknown waters, it earned a dreadful review from the LONDON TIMES when it first appeared, which helped it sink without a trace (the same paper forty years later in Visiak's obituary referred to the book as 'a tour-de- force')" - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 444. MEDUSA "is a hard to categorize as Lindsay's A VOYAGE TO ARCTURUS (1920). The tale moves gradually, in a slow crescendo, from its beginnings in a normal-seeming nineteenth-century England through adventures at sea and finally into a literal pit of fantasy -- a vast circular hole occupied by the eponymous sea monster which eats sexually aware men alive. The protagonist is a young boy who remains sexually innocent, though haunted by other guilts: he survives while his companions perish." - Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (1997), p. 987. Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 3-352. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1636. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 219. Bleiler (1978), p. 200. Reginald 14688.

Highly uncommon in the original wrappers. Good copy, edges worn. Surface split along spine cover. Text block intact. Black vignette to front cover. Lacks original spine title label.

        The Fairy Caravan

      Philadelphia, David Mackay and Co. 1929., 1929. FIRST U.S. EDITION (Precedes the Limited UK Edition, see below), INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR. 8vo, pp.225. With the copyright asserted on the title page in blue-black ink in the hand of Beatrix Potter. In addition, she has boldly struck out the 'Philadelphia' portion of the publisher's imprint. A used copy in original green cloth with colour plate illustration laid down to upper. Copy shows some general handling, gilt dulled to back-strip, crease to p.108, ink name and address to pastedown. An important copy, housed in a silk-lined leather clamshell box. In 1929 Miss Potter realised that the publication of the US edition of "Fairy Caravan" would leave her without a British copyright on the work: "It is evident that the English copyright must be secured by me." she wrote at the time. With this in mind she spoke to David Mackay in Philadelphia and asked him to send her one hundred sets of sheets for private binding and publication in Britain. This he did, and Miss Potter took the sheets to George Middleton in Ambleside to be bound. Obviously the US copyright on the title page was no use to either Miss Potter or Mr. Middleton, the likelihood is that Miss Potter wrote the copyright legend herself on a US edition by way of illustration to Mr. Middleton.

Some of Trollope's best-loved works, known as the Chronicles of Barsetshire, revolve around the imaginary county of Barsetshire; he also wrote penetrating novels on political, social, and gender issues and conflicts of his day. The Chronicles of Barsetshire is a series of six novels by the English author Anthony Trollope, set in the fictitious cathedral town of Barchester. They concern the dealings of the clergy, the gentry, and the political, amatory, and social maneuverings that go on among and between them. Condition: The bindings are tight and firm with all covers and internal pages attached. There is wear to the extremities, including bumping to the edges and water stains to the edge of the front and rear boards. The titles are visible on all the spines except for 'The Warden'. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright, apart from the occasional handling mark and mild spots. The front and end papers are more spotted. Overall the volumes are in good condition.

        This Day in History - Orpheus Invents the Recital, February, 10, 5287 B. C.

      n.p., 1929 - Lively, whimsical scene of of musician in a leopard skin toga surrounded by all the animals of the jungle, including a monkey with progamme in hand making a shushing gesture, and a glowering lion. Irvin was the first art editor of the New Yorker magazine and created its first cover and many others. Most of his original art was donated to institutions and rarely comes on the market. "The invaluable Irvin, artist, ex-actor, wit, and sophisticate about town and country, did more to develop the style and excellence of The New Yorker's drawings and covers than anyone else, and was the main and shining reason that the magazine's comic art in the first two years was far superior to its humorous prose" - James Thurber Published in "Musical America", February 10, 1929. 13 x 10 inches (sight). Watercolor illustration on board, signed lower left. Framed and matted [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
