Housed in a matching marbled paper-covered slipcase.A charming series of twenty colored sketches of the artist's two dogs (an Irish Wolfhound and a Bull Terrier) asleep and cuddling on Alden's sofa.Cecil Aldin (1870-1935) “was a most prolific artist and illustrator. While living in London, he became friends with the Beggarstaff Brothers (see Houfe under William Nicholson and James Pryde), John Hassall, Phil May and Dudley Hardy, and their influence on his work was great. He produced a great number of prints, a select list of which is included with a comprehensive bibliography in Heron’s book [Cecil Aldin: The Story of a Sporting Artist (1981)]. He did a great deal of advertising work, including posters, for such companies as Bovril, Colman (manufacturers of starch and mustard), and Cadbury’s, and Royal Doulton produced about sixty items with Aldin drawings between 1910 and 1939. Horses, dogs and the English countryside were the major topics of Aldin’s illustrations. The obituary in The Times asserted that ‘there never yet has been a painter of dogs fit to hold a candle to him…Cecil Aldin can justly be described as one of the leading spirits in the renaissance of British sporting art’” (Alan Horne, The Dictionary of 20th Century British Book Illustrators, p. 67). Books written and illustrated by Aldin include Old Inns (1921); Old Manor Houses (1923); Cathedral[s] and Abbey Churches of England (1924); Romances of the Road (1928); Sleeping Partners (1929); An Artist’s Models (1930); Exmoor, the Riding Playground of England (1935); and Hunting Scenes (1936).

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Moritz").

      Wien, 7. I. 1929.. 5 SS. auf 5 Bll. Gr.-8vo.. Biographisch aufschlußreicher Brief an seine langjährige Freundin, die Schauspielerin Gerda Tardel: "[...] Meine Belastung mit unerfreulichen Arbeiten, besonders wissenschaftliche Korrespondenz und Lesen von Dissertationen, ist wieder sehr gross, und die Ausarbeitung meiner eigenen Gedanken leidet darunter. Aber das macht nichts; das wirklich Bedeutsame wird doch fertig, und auf gewöhnliche Professorenproduktion lege ich immer weniger Gewicht, je mehr ich mit wirklicher Genialität in Berührung komme. Ein lange geplantes Unternehmen, die Herausgabe einer Bücherserie, von der ich mir nichts geringeres als eine umstürzende Reform der Philosophie verspreche, ist inzwischen in Fluss gekommen [...]". - Gemeinsam mit Philipp Frankl sollte Schlick von diesem Jahr an bis zu seinem Tod die "Schriften zur wissenschaftlichen Weltauffassung" herausgeben.

        POETS, FAREWELL!

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1929. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1929. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good in a slightly darkened, Near Fine dustwrapper with minor edgewear. Wilson's first volume of poetry, here INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the front endpaper: "To Marion and John Amen/This little sheaf of woodland/pipings from a wayward muse,/From Edmund Wilson/October 44." The beginning of Wilson's longtime friendship with John Amen, who would eventually become his tax lawyer and executor, dates to 1919. Wilson married his second wife, Margaret Canby, in Washington, DC at the home of Amen, then Assistant Attorney General of the United States. That marriage, of course, would end tragically with Margaret's death two years later after falling down stairs. Amen was the second husband of Marion Cleveland Dell, the daughter of former President Grover Cleveland. A scarce book to find signed, let alone with such a fine association.

        HUDSON RIVER BRACKETED

      Appleton , 1929. Appleton , 1929. First edition, UK issue. Original blue pebble grained cloth lettered in gilt to spine and upper cover in supplied yellow printed dustwrapper. The dedication copy, inscribed by the author on the dedication page, under the printed dedication (To A.J.H.S.), "from E.W. / December 1929". A very good copy with the gilt dulled and the rear hinge tender, dustwrapper in very good condition indeed with minor wear to the edges and a slightly toned spine. Housed in a quarter leather clamshell box. The dedicatee is John Hugh Smith, an American expatriate banker, art collector, francophile and literary devotee. When in around 1904 Edith Wharton became friends with Henry James, she joined a group of men who became known as her "inner circle" or, sometimes, "the happy few". This group included men of letters, artists as well as business men such as Hugh Smith. This group defined itself against the society its founders had left in the United States, while simultaneously criticising and accommodating the one it found in Europe. It existed parallel to but also as a transatlantic mirror of the Bloomsbury group.

        A ROOM OF ONE'S OWN

      Hogarth Press , 1929. Hogarth Press , 1929. First trade edition. Original cinnamon cloth with gilt titles on the spine in pictorial Vanessa Bell dustwrapper. A fine copy, with a small ownership name on the front endpaper, in a near fine dustwrapper, which has just one tiny nick from a corner at the base of the spine, but is otherwise beautifully crisp and clean. An extended essay, based on Woolf's lectures at a women's college at Cambridge University in 1928. In it, Woolf addresses her thoughts on "the question of women and fiction," interpreted by Woolf as many questions. In A Room of One's Own, Woolf ponders the significant question of whether or not a woman could produce art of the high quality of Shakespeare. In doing so, she examines women's historical experience as well as the distinctive struggle of the woman artist. "a woman must have money and a room of her own if she is going to write."

        THE WORKS OF SHAKESPEARE The Text of the First Folio with Quarto variants and a selection of modern readings: edited by Herbert Farjeon

      The Nonesuch Press 1929-1933, 19291933. The Nonesuch Press 1929-1933, 19291933. Seven volumes, number 95 of 1600 sets printed on Pannekoek mould-made paper and bound in publisher's full orange Niger morocco with gilt titles to the spine and borders to covers by Bain. Top edge gilt on the rough, others uncut. A near fine set, with a little variation in colour and occasional spotting to covers, both less than is usually encountered. "The Shakespeare represents the chef d'oeuvre of the Nonesuch Press, and is a model of careful proof reading and imaginative setting. The best of ancient and modern conjectural emendations are unobtrusively set in the margin for the benefit of a glancing eye. This is the finest of all editions of our greatest poet" (The Nonesuch Century) "We turn over to the Nonesuch Shakespeare. There you have created a most marvellous pleasure. I have handled it ever so many times, and read The Tempest right through. It satisfies. It is final, like the Kelmscott Chaucer or the Ashendene Virgil. And it is a book which charms one to read slowly, an art which is almost gone from us in these times. Every word which Shakespeare uses stands out glowing. A really great edition. The tact and grace of your editor have been surpassing. I think I like the size and shape and binding almost as much as the text. The paper, too, is just right. Altogether a triumph. One of the best things is that it can be done again. Nobody will ever dare to produce the old type of edition now, while your text stands there to reproach them. It means a permanent improvement in Shakespeares" (T.E. Lawrence letter to David Garnett).

        Industrie formt Menschen. Versuch einer Normierung der Industriepädagogik

      Einsiedeln / Waldshut / Köln am Rhein / Straßburg, Verlagsanstalt Benziger&Co A.-G., 1929. First Edition. Vollständige Ausgabe in aufwendigem Handeinband der Zeit (rotbraunes Maroquin-Ganzleder / GLdr gr.8vo im Format 16 x 23,5 cm) mit Rückentitel in Goldprägung und goldgeprägter Liniendekoration des gesamten Einbands, Kopfgoldschnitt, Steh- und Innenkantenvergoldung der Deckel, handgestochenem Kopfband und Lederhäubchen, 276 Seiten. Erstausgabe, EA, erste Auflage in sehr guter Erhaltung (Vorsätze minimal stockfleckig, sonst gut). - Eindrucksvoller Luxuseinband/Meistereinband des Art Deco. - "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Bei Dünndruckpapier werden die Lagen zum Heften leicht vorgeritzt. Ein Einsägen oder gar Einraspeln der Bünde findet nicht statt. Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Zum Kapital wird kein schlappes maschinengewebtes Bändchen verwendet, sondern das Kapital wird von Hand mit dem Buchblock umstochen, gibt dadurch dem Rücken einen festen Abschluß und bietet zugleich dem späteren Ledereinschlag ("Häubchen") die Unterlage. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können." Aus einem alten Prospekt von Richard Hönn, ehemals Handbinderei des Verlages Albert Langen, Werkstatt für feine Buchbinder- und Lederarbeiten in München, Dienerstrasse 14.

        Red Harvest

      Alfred A. Knopf 1929 - The first of Hammett's novels. Solidly preserved in sturdy brick red cloth covers with iconic yellow crossbones on front. Soundly bound with most of pages still stiff and unopened. Signature on front endpage with some ink offset drops on facing pastedown. Half-title has some fingerprint smudges. Rear endpapers with small foxspots. Covers are structurally good overall with the following assorted cosmetic flaws: the lower front corner has sunfaded in a large semi-circle. The cover cloth is in good condition so the fabric could be re-dyed and restored in that area. Top front has some remnants of paper adhesive, perhaps from a price sticker, and there is a 1/4" ink line at spine gutter. Spine pattern design and lettering are clear, with a small area of lightening at upper spine. Spine ends have some mild fraying. Not a perfect specimen, but a decent copy of a highly collectible American mystery classic. Only 3,000 copies were originally printed. Benefits the Friends of the Albany, CA library.

        Writings of Mark Twain, The

      , 1929. 1929. The Stormfield EditionTWAIN, Mark. The Writings of Mark Twain. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1929.Stormfield Edition. Limited to 1,024 numbered sets. Thirty-seven octavo volumes (8 5/8 x 5 1/2 in; 219 x 142 mm). Title-pages printed in red and black. Photogravure frontispieces and plates (including portraits) after drawings, paintings, etc. by E.W. Kemble, Howard Pyle, Dan Beard, W.H.W. Bicknell, P. Newell, J.Allen St. John, A.B. Frost, and others.Original dark blue fine-bead cloth, gilt triple-rule border with the gilt stencil signature of Mark Twain on the front cover. Spine lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut. A near fine set.The Stormfield edition of the Writings of Mark Twain, published in 1929, is identical in every way (with the exception of Twain&#39;s signature) to the Definitive Edition which had been published by Gabriel Wells in 1922. Even the limitation of these two sets were the same, both being limited to 1,024 numbered copies. The only difference between the two editions was the addition of an inserted &#39;signed leaf&#39; in the first volume of the Definitive edition. Twain had signed these leaves in 1906 in anticipation of the edition but died but died twelve years before it&#39;s publication in 1922. In fact the full cloth binding on the Stormfield edition is certainly superior to the quarter blue cloth over paper boards of the Definitive edition.The &#39;Stormfield&#39; edition was named after Mark Twain&#39;s final home "The Clemens family was itinerant from 1891 until well after Olivia&#39;s death in 1904, trying out a number of houses, none of which they found ultimately congenial. Fully out of debt, Clemens decided toward the end of his life to try and recover the feeling of stability that the Hartford home represented by building another house, this time in Redding, Connecticut, where he had purchased nearly 250 acres of land in 1906. In 1907, he commissioned John Mead Howells, son of William Dean Howells, to design the house, and allowed, or perhaps even encouraged, daughter Clara to participate in planning and overseeing construction. Built on the money he earned on "Extract from Captain Stormfield&#39;s Visit to Heaven," he named the house "Stormfield" and lived there until his death in 1910. Clara sold the house many years after her father&#39;s death. When the house burned down, it&#39;s owners built a near replica, which remains in private hands." (Gregg Camfield. The Oxford Comapnion to Mark Twain, p. 267).

      , 1929. 1929. Signed By The ArtistWith the Extra Suite of Color Plates[WYETH, N.C., illustrator]. [PALMER, George Herbert, translator]. HOMER. The Odyssey of Homer. Cambridge: Houghton Mifflin Company, The Riverside Press, 1929. Limited to 550 copies numbered and signed by the artist and translator, this being copy no. 458 complete with the extra suite of sixteen color plates in the original manilla envelope. Tall octavo (10 3/8 x 7 3/8 in; 263 x 187 mm). xxviii, [2], 314 pp. Sixteen full color tipped-in plates (including frontispiece) with captioned tissue guards, one full-page black and white "final sketch," one facsimile letter. Quarter off-white pigskin over teal linen with gilt-stamped central illustration, black spine label with gilt lettering. Pictorial endpapers. A bit of foxing to top edge, otherwise a tight, internally and externally clean and near fine copy."Newell Convers Wyeth was born on October 22, 1882, in Needham, Massachusetts. Growing up on a farm, he developed a deep love of nature. His mother, the daughter of Swiss immigrants, encouraged his early artistic inclinations in the face of opposition from his father, a descendant of the first Wyeth to arrive in the New World in the mid-17th century... On the advice of two friends, artists Clifford Ashley and Henry Peck, Wyeth decided to travel to Wilmington, Delaware, in October 1902, to join the Howard Pyle School of Art... Following Pyle&#39;s maxim to paint only from experience, Wyeth made three trips between 1904 and 1906 to the American West. He spent much of these trips simply absorbing the Western experience which allowed him to paint images that would place him among the top illustrators of his day. By 1907, Wyeth was heralded in Outing Magazine as "one of our greatest, if not our greatest, painter of American outdoor life." His pictures had appeared in many of the most popular magazines of the period, such as Century, Harper&#39;s Monthly, Ladies&#39; Home Journal, McClure&#39;s, Outing, and Scribner&#39;s..."In 1911, the publishing house of Charles Scribner&#39;s Sons engaged Wyeth to illustrate Robert Louis Stevenson&#39;s Treasure Island, his first commission in Scribner&#39;s popular series of classic stories... The success of Treasure Island insured Wyeth a long career with Scribner&#39;s, illustrating in succeeding years many classic stories. Among the most famous titles are Kidnapped (1913), The Black Arrow (1916), The Boy&#39;s King Arthur (1917), The Mysterious Island (1918), The Last of the Mohicans (1919), The Deerslayer (1925), and The Yearling (1939). He also created illustrations for other publishers, for books such as Robin Hood (Philadelphia: David McKay, 1917); Robinson Crusoe (New York: Cosmopolitan, 1920); Rip Van Winkle (Philadelphia: David McKay, 1921); The Odyssey of Homer (Houghton-Mifflin, 1929); Men of Concord (Boston: Houghton-Mifflin, 1936); and Trending Into Maine (Boston: Little, Brown, 1938)..."Despite his fame as an illustrator, Wyeth yearned to be known as a painter. The distinction between painting and illustration was an important one, with illustration carrying a pejorative connotation that Wyeth felt keenly all his life" (N.C. Wyeth website)."The Odyssey commission allowed Wyeth to engage his fullest imaginative powers: he was unfettered, in a sense, by facts. In this, he joins the ranks of artists who have found in Homer&#146;s fantastic Odyssey an easel for their most fantasticimpulses. After an exhibit in Wilmington in 1930, Wyeth declared that his Odyssey paintings were his finest in 25 years as an illustrator but a popular and even scholarly penchant for pigeonholing Wyeth as an artist of the American West has resulted in the almost complete neglect of his work on Homer. In the Odyssey illustrations, Wyeth is at leisure to be both playful and incredibly learned; his illustrations tap into tropes of canonical European art while innovating some startlingly &#39;American&#39; reimaginings of the Odyssey narrative. Obviously, Wyeth&#146;s illustrations of The Deerslayer andTreasure Island will remain canonical, in part because of their meticulous recreation of both material data and the narrative details. Homer&#146;s fantastic world, however, offered Wyeth a chance to illustrate in a more whimsical vein, bothtying the Odyssey to established patterns of European iconography while gesturing towards contemporary developments in American art" (Jenkins, Between Worlds Old and New: N.C. Wyeth&#146;s Odyssey illustrations).Allen & Allen, p. 213.

        The Dain Curse

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1929. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1929 First edition, first printing of the author&#39;s second novel. Bound in the publisher&#39;s yellow cloth, with a skull and crossbones image stamped in red to the front board, red and black stamped decorations to the spine. A very good or better copy, with some light wear to the extremities, a hint of toning to the spine, light scuffing to the boards, bright and fresh pages. Overall, a clean and attractive copy. The Dain Curse was originally published serially in four installments in the pulp magazine Black Mask from November 1928 - February 1929. Like its predecessor Red Harvest, The Dain Curse features the protagonist the Continental Op, an operative of the Continental Detective Agency&#39;s San Francisco office. The Continental Op is regarded as one of the earliest archetypal hard-boiled detective characters, similar to Hammett&#39;s later character Sam Spade and Raymond Chandler&#39;s Philip Marlowe. The Op is a short middle-aged man, who has few interests or activities outside of his job, a trait which is emphasized by Hammett&#39;s omission of the character&#39;s name. The Dain Curse is structured in three parts, each of which represents a different mystery surrounding the fictional Dain family: "The Dains," "The Temple," and "Quesada." The Dain Curse was adapted into a CBS television miniseries in 1978.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.
