        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. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      , 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'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 'signed leaf' 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'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 'Stormfield' edition was named after Mark Twain's final home "The Clemens family was itinerant from 1891 until well after Olivia'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'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's death. When the house burned down, it's owners built a near replica, which remains in private hands." (Gregg Camfield. The Oxford Comapnion to Mark Twain, p. 267).

        Odyssey of Homer, The

      , 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'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's Monthly, Ladies' Home Journal, McClure's, Outing, and Scribner's..."In 1911, the publishing house of Charles Scribner's Sons engaged Wyeth to illustrate Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island, his first commission in Scribner's popular series of classic stories... The success of Treasure Island insured Wyeth a long career with Scribner's, illustrating in succeeding years many classic stories. Among the most famous titles are Kidnapped (1913), The Black Arrow (1916), The Boy'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’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 'American' reimaginings of the Odyssey narrative. Obviously, Wyeth’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’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’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's second novel. Bound in the publisher'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's San Francisco office. The Continental Op is regarded as one of the earliest archetypal hard-boiled detective characters, similar to Hammett's later character Sam Spade and Raymond Chandler'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's omission of the character'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.

      . mit 150 Original-Fotos der Ausbildungsfahrt (davon ca 80 im Format 13x17 bis 9x14 cm und weitere 70 im Format 9x12 bis 10x13 cm) sowie weiteren 170 überwiegend kleinformatigen Originalfotos. die hauptsächlich Motive aus dem maritimen Ausbildungsbetrieb zeigen 25x32, braunes KLdr. Gutes Exemplar, lediglich einige wenige Fotos an den Rändern leicht geknickt. SEHR INTERESSANTES FOTOALBUM. Die "Karlsruhe" , ein kleiner Kreuzer der "Königsberg-Klasse", wurde 1929 in Dienst genommen und am 09.04.1940 im Rahmen der Operation "Weserübung" (Besetzung Norwegens) nach schwerer Beschädigung durch U-Boot-Beschuss kontrolliert versenkt. Bis 30.06.1936 diente der Kreuzer als Schulschiff der Reichsmarine, Anfang 1937 wurde er kurzzeitig im spanischen Bürgerkrieg eingesetzt. Das Album dokumentiert die Weltfahrt, die das Schiff als vierte Auslandsreise unternahm. Kommandant der "Karlsruhe" war auf dieser Fahrt KzS Günther Lütjens, der später bis zum Admiral, Flottenchef und Befehlshaber der Schlachtschiffe der Reichsmarine aufstieg und 1941 als Kommandant des weltgrößten Schlachtschiffes "Bismarck" mit diesem unterging. Lütjens ist auf mehreren Bildern zu sehen. Die Fahrt der "Karlsruhe" führte über Skagen und die Azoren um das Kap Hoorn über die Westküste Süd-, Mittel- und Nordamerikas bis Vancouver. In Callao nahm das Schiff an der 400-Jahrfeier des Staates Peru teil. Danach durchquerte die "Karlsruhe" den Panamakanal und kehrte über Houston, Charleston und Vigo zurück nach Kiel. Besonders erwähnenswerte Aufnahmen: Die im Bau befindliche "Bay Bridge" zwischen San Francisco und Oakland, Zeppelin der U.S. Navy überfliegt die "Karlsruhe", Übersicht über San Francisco und Alcatraz, Empfang der Mannschaft mit Truppenparade in San Francisco, Lütjens in Paradeuniform im Gespräch mit Amerikanern, Festakt vor einem deutschen Gefallenenehrenmal, viele Aufnahmen technischer Details der Kanaldurchfahrt in Panama, Panama-Stadt, Vancouver (Hafenansicht und Fotos indianischer Totempfähle), Mexiko (Sonnenpyramide von Teotihuacan, Stierkampfszenen, Schwimmende Gärten von Xochimilco), Houston/Texas (Wolkenkratzer und Straßenszenen).

        Autograph Quotation signed ("Benghabrit"). In French, signatures in French and Arabic.

      Paris., 22. V. 1929.. Folio. 1 page. On uncut wove paper, bearing the Schoellers-Parole blind embossed seal, margins uncut.. The original autograph contribution of Si Kaddour Benghabrit to the Committee of the World League for Peace (Ligue Mondiale pour la Paix), a remarkable organization formed in 1925 with close ties to the League of Nations. The Committee itself was composed of such notaries as Queen Elizabeth of Belgium, King Carol II of Romania, John D Rockefeller, Marie Curie, and Albert Einstein, who personally gathered the present manuscripts over the course of seven years (1925-32). Among the public figures who contributed to the project were dignitaries from the newly-created League of Nations' member states. 'Rebellion sleeps in the heart of man, may he be cursed who awakens it'. Thus spoke our Prophet. This is still the living doctrine of modern Islam. How could it not prefer the pure and simple joys of peace to the torments and dark nights of war! [Signed] Benghabrit". Si Khaddour Benghabrit rose to prominence under the French regime in Morocco . He is also remebered for his courage in saving the lives of the many Jews during the Second World War by disguising them as Muslim members of his Paris mosque - somewhere between 500 and 1600 people were saved from deportation in this way, and the Medal of Justice has been awarded to the descendants of Benghabrit by the Yad Vashem Memorial. - Pax Mundi.
