Hallie Flanagan is best known for her 1931 play Can You Hear Their Voices?, and as Director of the Federal Theatre Project (FTP) under the Works Progress Administration (WPA). She was the first woman awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship, which allowed her to travel throughout Europe and Russia for fourteen months in 1926-27 studying modern theatre. She met and befriended many of the greatest playwrights of the age including Lady Gregory, Konstantin Stanislavsky, Luigi Pirandello, and the great Italian Futurist writer, photographer, and director Anton Bragaglia. A nice association between two leading forces in early 20th Century theatre. .

        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.

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.

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.

        The Conan Doyle Stories

      JOHN MURRAY, London 1929 - This book was published in Arthur Conan Doyle's Lifetime. - Rare First Printing with the Original Dustjacket. - 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 the copyright page: First Edition in One Volume. 1929. - Preface by ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE is dated: April 26, 1929 - On the inner prelim of the original 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. - The ORIGINAL dustjacket bears the price of 20s net to the bottom of the inner front prelim. It has slight water damage to the bottom. It is a little soiled in general but it is complete and intact. - Boards are rust coloured cloth with gold/gilt lettering to the spine and front board. The spine cloth is lighter than the boards and there is a fair amount of soiling to the cloth. The binding remains tight. - Written inside the front board it states: 'Sitwell' - I am hoping the signature belongs to Edith Sitwell but this is not authenticated. - There is a minimum amount of foxing to the endpages and throughout the book. - 'There is an error in how many pages there actually are because there are in fact 1202 pages. It does not mean that there are 14 pages missing; it means that they made an error on the dustjacket. The very last story does actually finish on page 1202 because at the bottom of the last page the printers name appears which always appears on the very last page of a book'. - Apart from the page edges being browned, the pages are in a beautifully clean condition. - The top edge is still a deep red in colour. - Overall; a fabulous book. - Few small bonus items for fun: First is a small soft cardwrap book: 1925 - First Printing - Poetry by Edith Sitwell with coverart by Vanessa Bell. Published by: Leonard & Virginia Woolf at The Hogarth Press in 1925. Book Condition: There was not a dustjacket issued with this book. Vanessa Bell [Virginia Woolf's Sister] designed the beautiful illustration on the front board. Slim card covered book and spine is not present. Minor edge and corner wear, lightly scuffed and soiled. Pages are browned and foxed mainly to endpages and inner boards. Pages slight loose at margin but all is intact. Few small pencil notations. & A signed cheque written by Arthur Conan Doyle and a copy of his signature. [both are photocopies on glossy paper].
