        Scientific American November and December 1929 Volume 141 Numbers 5 and 6

      New York Scientific American Publishing Company 1929. An example of advertising for the ages, possibly part of a campaign engineered by the infamous Edward L. Bernays. Back page of issue number 5 is a color Lucky Strike cigarette advertisement which appears beneath the caption "An Ancient Prejudice has been removed." Center of the ad features a large clenched fist breaking a heavy chain. Upon the cuff of the hand is written "American Intelligence." Top left illustration shows a paranoid bearded miser counting his gold by candlelight. Top right illustration shows a wealthy establishment couple beside a handsome security guard inside a palatial bank. Text beneath the miser reads "Hoarding gold with the fanatical zeal of the miser has vanished. American Intelligence sponsors thousands of banking institutions to which the individual (i.e. the establishment couple) safely entrusts his wealth. *Please note the date of this magazine, November 1929*. This prestigious American publication was probably printed in the latter days of October 1929 ... just as the *Great Crash* occurred... and the *Great Depression* ensued... causing countless financial institutions to go under... taking countless individual fortunes with them. A package of Lucky Strikes appears in lower left corner while text in lower right corner reads "Toasting Did It - Gone is that ancient prejudice against cigarettes - progress has been made. We removed the prejudice against cigarettes when we removed harmful corrosive acrids (pungent irritants) from the tobaccos. Thus "Toasting" has destroyed that ancient prejudice against cigarette smoking by men and by women." As the banks soon proved fallible, what are the implications for cigarette smoking? A truly stunning work which should not be forgotten. We include the subsequent December 1929 issue as its back cover is graced with a very similar ad, only now the advertiser has made a timely change from the gold/banking theme to one comparing science in the days of the inquisition to the science supporting contemporary thriving metropolii. Condition: November back cover has average wear with three inch crease to lower corner. December back cover has several small tears and average soiling. December spine in poor condition. Truly unique and important pieces of Americana, these pieces will be of great interest to advertising historians, organizations opposed to tobacco use, and organizations promoting investment in precious metals. First Edition Paperback 4to - over 9?" - 12" tall Magazine; First Edition. Fair

        China Photos - Peking - The Forbidden City

      China, 1929. Beijing, circa 1929.

Photographs vary in size, the majority measuring 14,5 x 8,75 cm, with a few variations, the smallest measuring approximately 4,5 x 6,75 cm. Very Good Condition. Peking is the focal point of this collection of photographs, centering in and near the Forbidden City, and featuring exquisite reliefs, sky reaching pagodas, and some of the city's iconic ancient structures. The photographer was especially impressed the refined art of Chinese sculpture and carving. Three views of Winter Palace feature a lovely snapshot of the Dragon Wall, the most famously known of only nine dragon walls in all of China. [Winter Palace is situated west of the northern gate of Beijing's Forbidden City.] Coal Hill (Jingshan Park), formerly a private imperial garden attached to the grounds of the Forbidden City and situated immediately north of it. [The grounds were opened to the public in 1928.] The traveller entered Verboden Stad (The Foridden City), and includes a view of the elaborate entrance to the Hall of Supreme Harmony. Three photographs show the Temple of Heaven, which was constructed from 1406 to 1420 at the behest of the Yongle Emperor of the Ming Dynasty, who was also responsible for the construction of the Forbidden City. A tour of Jade Spring Hill and the Summer Palace yields a splendid close-up snapshot of reliefs carved into the base of Huazanghai Stone Pagoda. A bridge, the Jade Peak Pagoda, and the famous Marble Boat also appear. In addition, 4 photographs are taken on approaching Hong Kong show Chinese junks and commercial vessels in Victoria Harbour, as well as a secluded white sand beach possibly on the beautiful Sai Kung Peninsula. And, in Canton, the traveller includes 3 photographs of a temple and its Buddhist statues. . Very Good.

        Hoboken-Blues: "Das Lied von Hoboken": Negerkomödie

      Volksbünen-Verlags- und Vertriebs-G.m.b.H, Berlin 1929 - 8vo. 100pp. Maroon cloth spine over green wraps with red lettering. Sunning to top edge of front- and rear wraps. Translated from the American into German by Hermynia zur Mühlen. "Bearbeitung, Lieder: Günther Weisenborn." The News Playwrights' Theatre production of "Hoboken Blues" in 1928 was a bold experiment that failed with audiences and critics because it appeared to be racist although the playwright wrote it to expose the injustice done to African-Americans. Michael Gold wanted African-Americans to play the parts but director E. Massey cast white actors wearing black make-up. Fascinating piece of American Theatre history. Mimeographed typescript. Wraps in very good, interior in near fine condition. Rare German edition. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

About very good, with some light rubbing to the extremities, chipping and minor loss to the spine as usual, light toning to the spine and board edges, minor soiling, former owner's bookplate to the front pastedown, former owner's pencil signature to the front free endpaper, otherwise bright and clean interior. Overall, a presentable copy. Wade 166. Three Things is a poem that is published as No. 18 in Faber's Ariel Poems, a series of 38 pamphlets published from 1927-1931. Each pamphlet paired an author's single poem with illustrations by a selected artist. "Three Things" is an eerie exploration of the "three dear things that women know;" specifically, Yeats alludes to children, lovers, and her "rightful man." This volume is illustrated with two images by renowned English artist Gilbert Spencer, who recorded his first encounter with Yeats in his autobiography Memoirs of a Painter: "At that time I had scarcely read any poetry, but did not find listening to W. B. Yeats difficult at all, easy in fact; all he needed was the shape of his listeners in his line of vision, though visionary he most certainly was." [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Middle Parts of Fortune. Somme & Ancre, 1916

      London: The Piazza Press issued to subscribers by Peter Davies, Ltd.,, 1929. 2 volumes, octavo. Original brown buckram, titles gilt to spines within double panel, top edges gilt, others uncut, marbled endpapers. Spines a little rolled, light rubbing to ends and corners, nice sound copies in very good condition. First edition, the unexpurgated limited edition, number 187 of 525 copies. The book was published in this limited edition in 1929, garnering informed praise and intemperate notoriety in close to equal measure, and an expurgated edition, under the title Her Privates We (taken from the line in Shakespeare's Hamlet immediately following "The Middle Parts of Fortune"), was published the following year. But Manning never achieved fame and it was probably not until the re-issue of the full text in 1977 that the novel received the recognition that it deserved. Manning died of pneumonia at a nursing home in Hampstead in 1935. An excellent copy of a book perceived on publication as one of the most powerfully personal visions of the Great War. In Men at War Hemingway described it as "The finest and noblest book of men in war that I have ever read. I read it once each year to remember how things really were so that I will never lie to myself nor to anyone else about them," and T. E. Lawrence remarked that "No praise could be too sheer for this book … it justifies every heat of praise." The original unexpurgated form of a WW1 classic.
