        A midsummer-Night's Dream (ORIGINAL Pen -And-ink Presentation drawing)

      William Heinemann Ltd., London 1929 - An original pen and ink drawing by Arthur Rackham dated 1938 and inscribed To 'Nurse Bird in gratitude from Arthur Rackham 1938' located on a preliminary blank page of a 1919 reprint of 'A midsummer-night's dream' published by William Heinemann. Arthur Rackham died of cancer at home on 6 September 1939. In 1937 he was diagnosed with cancer and underwent deep x-ray therapy in August. In 1938 he was forced to go into the Empire Nursing Home in St Vincent's Square, London for a prostrate operation, and his doctors ordered him to stop all work for six months. He spent extended periods in hospital - permanently under the care of a surgical nurse. Nurse Bird was probably one such nurse. She would have known that Rackham was illustrating 'Midsummer Night's Dream' for the Limited Editions Club. This was his second venture into illustrating this play. She, went out and bought a (probably second-hand copy) of his first venture - and had him personalise it. In it, he depicts the character of Nick Bottom (who provides comic relief in the play) now with his head transformed into an ass by a fairy who holds on to a garland - draped between his ears. Styllistically, there is more than a passing resemblance to the headpiece illustrated at the head of page 14. As Rackham's health was poor in this and his final year - it is doubtful as to whether there are many surviving art works during this period. Nurse Bird, presumably called Bertha has written, 'To Hilda, Paul and Joan with love from Bertha hoping you will enjoy the works of this charming and wonderful man!' to the reverse of the front endpaper and directly opposite Rackham's drawing. The dust jacket has a brown protective wrapper over it - of no consequence but that it says on it, given by Bertha to keep as a family heirloom - Joan Rice. Feb 1982' and the extra detail 'cover original is in my case in sunlounge (valuable - .?.) The book itself is in very good condition - all plates are present - one colour plate is creased to one corner. The wrapper is in fair condition - with sellotape repair ghosting to the front and rear of the wrapper. A unique original item for the collector. Shipping from the UK [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF CALVIN COOLIDGE.

      New York Cosmopolitan Book Corporation 1929 - First Edition, Limited Issue, Specially Bound. This copy out of series and with a tipped in letter signed by Coolidge on White House stationery and dated 1927. With a photogravure frontispiece of President Coolidge and eleven other illustrations throughout. 8vo, publisher’s original dark blue linen backed boards, t.e.g., others uncut. [12], 247, colophon. A bright and clean copy, the letter also finely preserved. SCARCE LIMITED FIRST EDITION, THIS COPY WITH A FINE LETTER ON WHITE HOUSE STATIONERY AND OUT OF SERIES, RARE THUS. Coolidge speaks in an endearing way of his childhood in the woods and mountains near Killington, VT and his process of political maturation and service to his community and nation. The book is ably written and articulate in its presentation and leads the reader to a new appreciation of a man often relegated to the obscure because of his quietude. Especially noteworthy in the present day is to read Coolidge’s own thinking about the methodology of the Presidency, its struggles with the other branches of government and the absolute necessity for the President to bear the burden of that struggle in order to protect in an absolute way, the rights and privileges of the executive, and thus its equality with the other branches. All of this from a man who came from a simple country environment, from local people and through service in both the legislative and legal bodies to his place in the executive branch.

        Bauhaus] - Relief aus dem Unterircht Joost Schmidt, 1929.

      [Dessau, 1929 - S/W Fotografie. [Dessau, nach 1929]. 35,4 x 27,7 cm. Auf Karton aufgezogen. Späterer Abzug in Vergrößerung vom Original-Negativ. Rückseite mit Aufkleber der Galerie am Sachsenplatz sowie mit eighd. Signatur Ehrlich's. - Ehrlich, (1907 - 1984), studierte nach einer Lehre als Maschinenschlosser 1927 bis 1930 am Bauhaus in Dessau. Er legte dort zunächst eine Gesellenprüfung als Tischler ab und arbeitete später zeitweise im Büro von Walter Gropius. Während der NS-Diktatur wurde der Kommunist Ehrlich wegen "Vorbereitung zum Hochverrat" verurteilt und im Zuchthaus Zwickau, später im Konzentrationslager Buchenwald inhaftiert. 1943 bis 1945 kam er als Soldat im Strafbataillon "999" nach Griechenland und anschließend in jugoslawische Kriegsgefangenschaft. 1946 kehrte Franz Ehrlich nach Deutschland zurück und wurde Leiter des Referats für Wiederaufbau in Dresden. In den 1950er Jahren war er unter anderem am Bau des Funkhauses Nalepastraße in Berlin-Oberschöneweide, des Fernsehzentrums in Berlin-Adlershof sowie der Franz-Vollhardt-Klinik auf dem Gelände der Heilanstalten in Berlin-Buch beteiligt. Er war Chefarchitekt der Leipziger Messe, für die er einen Messeturm entwarf, der aber nicht gebaut wurde. Zu seinem Hauptwerk kann darüber hinaus die Möbel-Typenserie "602" gezählt werden, die ab 1957 in den Deutschen Werkstätten in Hellerau produziert wurde. (Zitat) Deutsch [Attributes: Soft Cover]

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

      New York: Scientific American Publishing Company. Paperback. 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. . Fair. 1929. First Edition.

        The CONAN DOYLE Stories

      JOHN MURRAY, London 1929 - Published during Arthur Conan Doyle's Lifetime. - A VERY RARE FIRST PRINT OF THIS VERY SCARCE BOOK. The CONAN DOYLE Stories. 6 Volumes in 1. The Ring and the Camp, Pirates and Blue Water, Terror and Mystery, Twilight and the Unseen, Adventure and Medical Life, Tales of Long Ago, 76 Stories - 1216 pages. [stated on front of dustjacket]. by SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE [First Edition in One Volume] - Preface by ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE is dated: April 26, 1929. On the inner prelim of the facsimile dustjacket, there is a message from Sir Winston Churchill who wrote: 'Of course I read every Sherlock Holmes story, but the works I like even more than the detective stories are the great historical novels which, like Sherlock Holmes, have certainly found a permanent place in English literature'. ~ This volume comprises most of Conan Doyle's short stories other than those relating to the great detective Sherlock Holmes. CONDITION: The facsimile dustjacket bears the price of 20s net to the bottom of the inner front prelim. This was produced from a first edition that had light water damage to the bottom. It was a little soiled but it looks good on the book. The dustjacket is enclosed in a plastic protective sleeve. Boards are of rust coloured cloth with gold/gilt lettering to the spine and front board and is still quite clear to read. The rust colour on the spine has faded, moreso than the boards have. Cloth on both sides of the spine has partial splitting but the binding remains tight despite this. This is a heavy little book that weights in at 800grams. Red topstain in good order and clean. There is a minimum amount of foxing to the endpages and occasional throughout the book. Browning to page edges. End of description. ~ Two bonus items: 1. Arthur Conan Doyle's Preprinted Signature, 2. Preprinted copy of a cheque signed by Arthur Conan Doyle. Dated Aug 9. 1924 for the amazing sum of: 'one pound, four and ninepence'. I'll just pop these in the front of the book. They are printed on glossy paper. ----- POSTAGE OPTIONS: Our orders are shipped within 1 or 2 business days. - Thanks for your interest and I hope you like the book enough to buy it. - Regards from Arabella.
