        Antlitz Der Zeit: Sechzig Aufnahmen Deutscher Menschen Des 20. Jahrhunderts

      Transmare Verlag/Kurt Wolff Verlag, Munich 1929 - The uncommon 1929 1st edition of this remarkable August Sander highspot in portrait photography. 60 crisp black-and-white studies, skillful and revealing and very, very moving. Such was the power of this unassuming collection that when the Third Reich came to power in 1933, they set their sites on this book, destroying the original plates and puttting a halt to its publication. This copy, while it's seen some wear to the panels, has maintained its basic soundness. The binding remains sturdy, the plates clean and unmarked. Internally, this is a superior copy, with very light soiling to the preliminaries and, most significantly, no markings or flaws of any kind to the plates. The front panel, on the other hand, shows significant wear --specifically, water damage (a light brown staining) covering almost half of the yellow cloth. The staining is undeniable and (I believe) irreversible but, oddly, blends in with the mustard-yellow cloth and doesn't detract too dramatically from the book's appearance. A perfectly serviceable copy, solidly (and conservatively) a G+. Quarto, 15 pg. preface by the formidable Alfred Doblin (of "Berlin Alexanderplatz") plus the 60 plates.

In part: "...I hope the malaria situation is in hand. I think the county commissioners should have it put up to them very strongly that if Meriwether County gets the reputation for malaria, it will absolutely and definitely block any possibility of its development as a health resort for people from all over the United States.

"Dieses Buch ist kein politisches; aber Politik und Wirtschaft sind die lebendigen Grundlagen seines architektonischen Querschnitts. Es sieht Europa zwischen den beiden Willensmächten Rußlands und Amerika um fernere Weltgeltung ringen, sieht im heutigen Amerika die sich vertiefende Weltmacht, nicht nur wildes Ausbeutertum und hoffnungslose Mechanik - sieht Sowjetrußland als Tatsache, nicht nur als Studio verwirrter Menschenhirne, im russischen Opfer Vorstufe und Beginn einer neuen Ordnung, nicht nur eine Variation politischer Pubertät. Mit der Gegenüberstellung "Rußland - Europa - Amerika", berührt es ein höchst gegenwärtiges, zeitwichtiges und entscheidenes Problem." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Autograph Letter Signed, 2 pp on one 4to sheet, Palma Mallorca, June 12, 1929

      To his sister-in-law, Else Jaffe, Lawrence discusses the publication of one of his books, most likely The Paintings of D.H. Lawrence which was published in London in June of 1929. He also addresses his beliefs about himself. He mentions leaving Palma de Mallorca shortly and wants Frieda (his wife) to ?see after my pictures, as the show is supposed to open this week.? He is referring to an exhibition of his oil paintings at the Warren Gallery in London that opened in mid-June. During the final years of his life, Lawrence produced many oil paintings. The exhibition at the Warren Gallery was raided by police and a number of the paintings were confiscated for indecency. He discusses the book, no doubt his book of paintings, and why he will not send a copy to his correspondent. ?I have a set of the coloured plates... rather good... I hear they have already orders for about 300 copies.... I shan?t send you a copy ? I know you don?t care especially about it - & in these things you belong to the opposite direction, so of course don?t see value in work of this sort. You say Satanish. Perhaps you are right; Lucifer is brighter now than tarnished Michael or shabby Gabriel. All things fall in their turn, now Michael goes down, and whispering Gabriel, and the Son of the Morning will laugh at them all. Yes, I am all for Lucifer, who is really the Morning Star. The real principle of Evil is not anti-Christ or anti-Jehovah, but anti-life. I agree with you, in a sense, that I am with the anti Christ. Only I am not anti-life....? He continues with travel plans for himself and his wife Freida, Else?s sister. If Freida comes to England from Marseille, I shall probably go to North Italy...where it won?t be too hot. This year I don?t want to come very far north ? I feel I am better south of the Alps...This island is a queer place ? so dry...I expect the schwiegermutter [mother-in-law] will have gone back...I was glad to see she was well enough to come to Heidelberg...we will somewhere if not in Baden...? He signs with initials, ?D. H. L.? The letter is published in The Letters of D. H. Lawrence ? James T. Boulton, ed.

        James Joyce Reading "Anna Livia Plurabelle"

      Cambridge: The Orthological Institute, 1929. Cambridge: The Orthological Institute,, 1929. Original vinyl 12-inch LP record in original buff sleeve. Record's sleeve's fore edge a little brittle and with brown packing tape repairs to 3 sides, the record itself has an excellent playing surface. First pressing of the recording of James Joyce reading a passage from the "Anna Livia Plurabelle" section of his draft of Finnegans Wake. While staying in London in summer 1929 Joyce was aproched by linguist Charles Kay Odgen to do a reading as part of Odgen's Basic English project. The recording took place at Odgen's Orthological Society in Cambridge later in that year. Sylvia Beach wrote: "How beautiful the 'Anna Livia' recording is, and how amusing Joyce's rendering of an Irish washerwoman's brogue! This is a treasure we owe to C. K. Ogden and Basic English. Joyce, with his famous memory, must have known 'Anna Livia' by heart. Nevertheless, he faltered at one place and, as in the Ulysses recording, they had to begin again." This record is from the first pressing, which was made for Odgen and the Onthological Society, three further pressings were subsequently released by His Master's Voice, Argus Book Shop, Chicago, and Gotham Book Mart, New York.

        HOLY BIBLE - 1828-1829 (PHINNEY)

      Cooperstown: H. & E. Phinney, 1929. Cooperstown: H. & E. Phinney, 1929. Full leather. Five raised bands. Title on leather label on spine. The first leaf is the title page (no frontispiece, if there ever was one). "The Names and Order of all of the Books of the Old and New Testaments, and the Apocrypha, with the number of their Chapters" on verso of title page, followed by "To the Reader," with the beginning of The Table of Contents on verso, numbered page 4. Pagination continues to the end of the Old Testament, ending with page 574, followed by "A Table," which is on pages 575 and 576. Then four unnumbered pages for the family history. The first page of these has not been written in and has a very long tear, mended with strips of paper pasted on. Some tear remains open. There are records of the Servoss family on two of the record pages, the last birth noted being 1888, the first 1814. 99 pages of The Apocrypha follow. Then the title page for The New Testament, which bears the date 1829. Pagination here begins with 579 and continues through 768, including index and tables. There are ten illustration plates. I find 23 short tears (approx. half-inch or less) and 4 long tears.Foxing throughout, mostly light to moderate, with many pages not foxed at all. Foxing heavier at and around plates. Leaf 89-90 has been mostly torn out, but laid back in, with no loss of text, though wrinkled and edge-chipped. The first 4 and last 3 leaves (tables) have eroded edges with some loss of text and are also wrinkled. The last dozen or so leaves have a large water stain. Four dog-ears. Short tear to one plate and two short tears to another plate. The leather binding is scarred and mottled, with moderate wear to edges. The book is very sound. This is probably not the "famous" edition used by Joseph Smith, as the New Testament is dated 1829. So far I have been unable to find another copy with these two dates.. Hardcover. Good/No Jacket. 11 x 9 Inches.

        Magick In Theory And Practice (Book 4, Part III)

      Paris: Lecram, Imp., 1929. Paris: Lecram, Imp., 1929. The elusive second state Subscribers Edition, with an excellent example of the scarce Dust Jacket. The DJ has a light fade to spine, less than usually found. It is otherwise in a Fine state of preservation, with light extremity wear. The book itself would be Fine, if not for mottling to the front and back red cloth boards (heavier to back board). Spine unfaded, Gold Gilt spine title very bright without loss. Top Edge Red Stained. All corners sharp. Binding very tight, and seemingly unread. The usual, light offset to endpapers,as always. It is otherwise internally clean and crisp. "Magick", was first released as a four part wrap edition (with color plate) in 1930 (although the publishers imprint is 1929). It was subsequently released as a one volume hardcover "Published For Subscribers Only", by the Mandrake Press who AC was then associated with. Mandrake took the four part wrap edition, excluded the plate, revised the table of contents, and rebound them into a one volume hardcover "Subscribers Edition". Rarely mentioned by bibliographers (exception: Cornelius/Drylie [p. 209/fn. 149] although not fully elucidated upon), there are two different states of the Subscriber's edition. The first state, and most common is the buckram, with T.E.G. The second and much less common is red cloth, with a red stained top edge. Internally, both are the same. It is said that after the Mandrake Press closed, the left over signatures of MITP where remaindered by Hershant and Foyles. Possibly, this second state is an edition of those remaindered sheets, bound by Foyles Book Club (perhaps for A.C.'s speech at the Foyles luncheon in 1932, "to sell a few hundred sets of my treatise Magick.")? As seen here, both where issued with the same Dust Jacket. Yorke 62.C(b). First Subscribers Edition, 2nd State. Cloth. Very Good/Very Good ++. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
