        Icones Farlowianae, Illustrations of the Larger Fungi of Eastern North America

      Cambridge, MA: Farlow Library and Herbarium of Harvard University, 1929. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. One of 500 copies printed. x, 120 pp, with 103 color plate, each accompanied by descriptive text. Original green cloth with gilt lettering. No dust jacket. Corners lightly bumped, else a fine copy. Letter from the librarian at the Farlow Herbarium regarding purchase of the book laid in. Oversized: shipping cost will be more than standard for priority or international orders. Farlow's research on plant diseases "helped lay the foundations for a science of phytopathology. His investigations of potato rot, diseases of oranges and olives, mildews of grapes, black knot of plum and cherry, and onion smut considered the taxonomic, physiological, and pathological nature of the causal fungi. He stressed the importance of understanding fungal life cycles in order to recommend control strategies for plant diseases...Through his own collecting, purchases of collections, and the assistance of students and correspondents, Farlow built the world-renowned collection that would later bear his name. To augment the herbarium, he created an outstanding reference library on the fungi and lower forms of plants" (ANB).

        3 eigenh. Briefe mit U. ("R. Slatin").

      [Wohl Meran], 1929.. Zusammen (1+3+2 =) 6 SS. auf 4 Bll. Gr.-4to.. An einen "lieben Herrn Doctor und Freund": "Leider kann ich nicht Donnerstag wie beabsichtigt durch Bozen fahren - Anne Marie fiebert leider so stark daß der Arzt die Reise nicht erlaubt - hoffentlich geht es bald besser so Gott will! [...]" (Br. v. "Dienstag [1]929"). - "[...] Ich bin schon seit Wochen in Sorge um Anne Maries Gesundheit! Anfang Mai fing sie mit meinem [!] Bronchial Catarrh an, der vorüber ging - aber Temperaturen blieben. Da Dr. Spitaler nach einiger Zeit bekannte, daß er die Ursache nicht finden konnte - ging ich zu Dr. Gara [?] - dort wurde sie genau untersucht und durchleuchtet - der constatirte daß sie stark an Drüsen leidet. Also hieß es Höhenluft - das hilft! Nun ist die Kleine seit 1ten Juni am Vigil Joch - doch die Höhenluft hat nicht die Schuldigkeit gethan - obzwar sie auch nach Vorschrift nur auf dem Liegestuhl lebt! Sie ißt mäßig - schläft gut - sieht nicht schlecht aus - hat aber immer Abends 37.7 - 38° (internal gemessen). Ich habe mich nun entschlossen sie nach St. Blasien im Schwarzwald in das Sanatorium des Prof. Dr. Backmeister zu bringen um sie unter continuirlicher ärztlicher Controlle zu haben [...]" (Br. v. 5. Juli). - "[...] Ich war 4 Wochen in Hall - verspüre aber sehr wenig von den Erfolgen der Kur. - Von meiner Tochter habe ich im ganzen genommen gute Nachrichten, doch will sie Prof. Backmeister bis Ende des Jahres in St. Blasien behalten um sie ein für alle Male von ihrem Leiden zu kuriren [...]" (Br. v. 20. September). - Die Tochter Slatin-Paschas (geb. 1916) sollte von ihrem Leid geheilt werden und im Alter von 91 Jahren im November d. J. 2007 versterben. - Jeweils auf Briefpapier mit gedr. Adresse. - Im linken Rand gelocht (stellenweise geringf. Buchstabenberührung).

        Ms. Brief mit eigenh. U. ("Alban Berg").

      Wien, 29. XII. 1929.. 1½ SS. Gr.-4to. Mit zweizeiliger eh. Nachschrift und U. von Helene Berg.. Ausführlicher und freundschaftlicher Brief an den Komponisten Paul von Klenau: "[...] Von den mir bekannten Tagen Deines Wiener Sejours (ich traf Dich am 15. November im Scherchenkonzert und nahm Deine Abreise für den 15. Dezember an) von diesen 30 Tagen also war ich selbst fast 10 Tage abwesend (Essen), eine Woche krank, hatte (zum erstenmal in meinem Leben) eine öffentliche Klavierbegleitung - mit vorhergehender Gesangs-Korrepetition und Klavierüben - zu leisten, zwei Vorträge vorzubereiten, vier Tage der Wiener Staatsoper quasi zur Verfügung zu stehen (mit dem Oldenburger Korrepetitor), Vorbereitungen für die obige Reise und für Weihnachten zu treffen; und die Zwischenzeit mit Briefschreiben und Telefonieren und Stundengeben auszufüllen. Und da spreche ich nur von mir. Auch Dir ist es in diesen 30 Tagen nicht anders ergangen. Jedenfalls wäre es ein Wunder gewesen, wenn die paar Stunden der Muße, die uns beiden vielleicht gerade noch geblieben sind, so auf die Minute zusammen gefallen wären, daß wir sie zusammen hätten verbringen können [...] Anbei findest Du lieber Paul eine Liste, die meine Bruchstücke betrifft, Ich habe die Partitur eben durchgeblättert in der Absicht, Dir darüber vielleicht ein oder die andere Bemerkung (aus meinen Erfahrungen heraus) zu sagen. Und sehe nun, daß es ein ganzer Haufen geworden ist: Druckfehler, neue Retouchen und kleine Unklarheiten in dem, was ich gewollt habe. Ich habe sie stückweise im Telegrammstil angeführt: möchte aber jetzt hinzufügen, daß ich Dich bitte bei jedem einzelnen Punkt bitte, ihn zu berücksichtigen. Du mögest also überall lesen statt etwa: Takt so und so mf! richtig: bitte mf! Und es ist klar daß dieses bitte auch unausgesprochen ein Danke zur Folge hat. Ãœberflüssigerweise hab ich mich auch über die Sprechstimmbehandlung ausgelassen. Ich hab ja ganz vergessen, daß in den Gurreliedern auch ein Sprecher vorkommt, Du also längst vollauf und aus eigenster Erfahrung orientiert bist [...]".

        100 x Paris. [Einleitung von F. Fels.]

      Verlag der Reihe,, Berlin, 1929 - Berlin, Verlag der Reihe, (1929). Gr.-8°. XXXI + 100 S. OHlwd. EA. Text in deutsch, franz. und engl. Sprache. Tafeln in Kupfertiefdruck, monochrom in Sepia. - Die Reihe der Hundert. - R. etw. angestaubt. Schönes Exemplar. - Krull, (1897 - 1985), zog 1912 mit der Mutter nach München-Schwabing. In München trat sie 1915 in die Lehr- und Versuchsanstalt für Photographie, Chemie, Lichtdruck und Gravüre (zuletzt: Staatliche Fachakademie für Fotodesign München) ein. Ihre Verbindung zu den kommunistischen Revolutionären, die 1919 die bayrische Räterepulik ausriefen, trug ihr 1929 die Ausweisung aus Bayern ein. Nach Stationen z.B. im nachrevolutionären Moskau lebte sie überwiegend in Frankreich, kämpfte auf Seiten der Resistance gegen das Hitlerregime. Sie kann aufgrund ihrer wechselvollen Lebensstationen, die sie in drei Erdteile führten, als echte "Weltbürgerin" bezeichnet werden. Als eine der ersten weiblichen Kriegsberichterstatterinnen ging sie 1946 nach Indochina. Ab 1965 lebte sie in Indien, um später wiederum in Bangkok ein Hotel zu leiten. Germaine Krull sorgte ihr Leben lang selbst für ihre Unabhängigkeit. Schwerpunkte ihrer fotografischen Arbeit waren die experimentelle Aktfotografie sowie die Werbefotografie. In ihrem Band Metal beschäftigte sie sich mit den Wundern aus Stahl, den Zeugnissen der fortschreitenden technischen Revolution. Fotografisch ist Germaine Krull der vom Bauhaus inspirierten "Neuen Fotografie" zuzurechnen. (Zitat) Deutsch [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Original Sketch Signed with initials, folio, Aug. 1929

      Barbier has sketched a multicolored fantasy seascape with a soft toned mermaid at the center. Drawn on folio sheet with some show through of handwriting (in an unknown hand) on verso. The handwriting shows as soft arcs and fits in with the image. Signed in the middle of the drawing in small letters with date, "GB Aug. 1929." Matted in gray and framed in silver toned wood. Barbier is best known for his theater designs, ballet costumes, and particularly for his high fashion illustrations. He led a group of illustrators from the Beaux Arts School known for their flamboyance as much as their art.

In 1929, Barbier was the costume designer for musical "The Street Singer.

        THIS THING CALLED LOVE (1929)

      Pathé 1929 - Vintage original 11 x 14" (28 x 35 cm.) title lobby card, USA. Edmund Lowe, Constance Bennett, Roscoe Karns, Zasu Pitts, dir: Paul L. Stein; Pathé. Lovely Art Deco treatment for this romantic Pre-Code tale which is considered to be a lost film. The story concerned a young woman disillusioned by marriage because of her observation of her sister's constant battles with her husband. When she meets a millionaire gold miner who is smitten by her and offers marriage, she agrees to be his housewife for a salary. The "arrangement" allows them both to consort with others should they choose. Eventually true love wins out however! Based on a play by Edwin J. Burke, there was a two-strip Technicolor sequence included. VERY GOOD.
