        ADDRESS OF PRESIDENT COOLIDGE TO THE NATIONAL REPUBLICAN COMMITTEE AT THE WHITE HOUSE DECEMBER 6, 1927

      Washington: U.S. Gov. Printing Office, 1929. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine and exceptionally scarce item with a superb association. Small octavo (5-1/2" x 7-1/2") bound in flexible blue morocco leather lettered in gilt (including Coolidge's name at the bottom right) and decorated in gilt with stars in the corners and the Presidential coat-of-arms in the center. With a printed title page but the 19 text pages mimeographed rather than printed on paper with three holes in the gutter margin. Obviously a very limited production likely printed for Coolidge's personal use, and quite possibly unique. OCLC does not record any printed copy of this speech though it lists about 70 others. Given the same day as the 1927 State of the Union address, this speech was given to a much smaller, more selective audience. In the audience was William Butler, a Massachusetts Senator who was Coolidge's campaign manager and the Republican Party Chairman. This is his copy and is INSCRIBED and SIGNED to him by the President two days before Coolidge left office: "To Honorable William M. Butler,/In appreciation of a long and/faithful friendship/ Calvin Coolidge, /The White House,/March 1 1929." In the third sentence of his speech Coolidge acknowledges Butler: "Both the primary and the election were under the immediate direction of the present Chairman, William M. Butler." In his AUTOBIOGRAPHY, Coolidge remarks: "The campaign was magnificently managed by William M. Butler." Two minor text corrections in ink, likely by Coolidge.

        Vol. 12 of 29 Atlases of Insurance Maps for Brooklyn. Gravesend & Bensonhurst

      New York: Sanborn Map Company, 1929. hardcover. very good. Atlas. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Massive elephant folio. Decorative calligraphic titles, indices, and key maps. Contains a set of 78 detailed maps of southern Brooklyn along with changes recorded on paste-on correction slips through 1973. Quarter leather binding with gilt title on front and spine. Tear to spine of original protective canvas cover. This volume includes the new Belt Parkway ("Shore Parkway") and undeveloped waterfront land that is now filled-in parks and piers. The Sanborn map collection consists of a uniform series of large scale maps, dating from 1867 to the present depicting the commercial, industrial, and residential sections of some twelve thousand cities and towns in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The maps were designed to assist fire insurance agents in determining the degree of hazard associated with a particular property and therefore show the size, shape and construction of dwellings, commercial buildings, and factories as well as fire walls locations of windows and doors, sprinkler systems, and types of roofs. The maps also indicate widths and names of streets, property boundaries, building use, and house and block numbers. They show locations of water mains, giving their dimensions, and of fire alarm boxes and hydrants. Sanborn maps are an unrivaled source of information about the structure and use of buildings in American Cities. The collection includes some fifty thousand editions of fire insurance maps comprising an estimated seven hundred thousand individual sheets. The Library of Congress holdings represent the largest extant collection of maps produced by the Sanborn Map Company. The majority of the maps were acquired by the Library through copyright deposit, but the collection was substantially enriched in 1967 when the Bureau of the Census transferred to the Library of Congress a complete set. The 1,899 loose-leaf binders were particularly noteworthy because they included later editions than those previously acquired by the Library. The Bureau of the Census set of maps had been regularly updated by printed, paste-on corrections supplied by the Sanborn Map Company, whereas the Library of Congress copies were retained in the form in which they were copyrighted.

        Gods' Man and Mad Man's Drum (two volume set)

      New York: Jonathan Cape and Harrison Smith, 1929 & 1930. First editions. Octavos [21 cm]; 1/4 black cloth over black and white illustrated boards. Both volumes near fine. In publisher's slipcase that is near fine. & & Ward's first and second "wordless novels" sold in the Jonathan Cape slipcase that has the same artwork as the boards of Mad Man's Drum. We had previously not handled this slipcase, and were unaware of its existence. Scarce.& & Ward wrote of the works "I had earlier believed that every block should be conceived in the simplest terms possible, then cut with an absolute minimum of tool work. I had worked on the premise that every image should be developed only as far as was necessary to produce a comprehensible statement for that particular point in the visual sequence. Now, with those earlier miles behind me, it seemed reasonable to take a different approach to the actual cutting the blocks. In God's Man, except for the use of round and flat gravers to remove the white areas, all the rendering of figures and landscapes had been done with a single line tool. I Madman's Drum, by contrast, I sought to develop a wider range of tool work and utilized small round gravers to break up a large dark area with small jabs of the tool, thus achieving a variety both of tonal effect and textural quality. At the same time, I put more emphasis on decorative patterns in such things as dress material and the walls of interiors, which I hoped would not only result in richer and more varied impact from block to block but also help the reader identify recurring characters and backgrounds more readily as the story developed.

"The unified Field Theory" is one of Einstein&#39;s last important scientific works. According to Weil &#39;This paper represents a new development which was immediate news. A translation by L.L.Whyte appeared in the (London) Times of feb. 4, 1929. It was quoted in full in "Observatory", vol. 52, under the title "New Field Theory" pp. 82 -87 and (1930) pp. 11 - 118. In 1928, [Einstein] embarked on a new approach to a unified field theory ... involving what he called &#39;distant parallelism&#39; ... By early 1929 he had solved the main problems involved in writing down field equations for his unified field theory. On the day of official publication of the third of a formidably technical series of 9 articles on the theory ... excited headlines appeared in foreign newspapers, throughout the world. ... In this frenzied, unscientific atmosphere Einstein&#39;s new theory was hailed in the press as an outstanding scientific advance. Yet Einstein had stated in his article that it was still tentative; and soon he found he had to abandon it.&#39;: Parkinson, Breakthroughs, p. 279..

        Gloves, Glory, and God: an autobiography by Henry Armstrong

      A rare specimen with a Henry Armstrong gift presentation: 13 lines carefully done over the full half-title page, the signature of exceptional quality with fine H-bar flourishes in Henry, signed; "from Henry Armstrong, formerly Featherweight, Lightweight and Welterweight Champion of the World", the presentation to noted boxing memorabilia collector, John Costello [1929-2012?] of Montreal, Quebec, known for his extraordinary collection of mint unused tickets to championship and major boxing matches in the United States and Canada. He had the book rebound without the book jacket in a higher quality French blue cloth binding stamped with gold leaf letters. Costello's name is stamped in gold leaf at the foot of the upper side and his Montreal address label is mounted on the front endpaper. The rear endpaper has the bindery's stamp, Art Book Binding, Montreal. Except for light (shelf) wear to the covers, the book is in pristine condition. CONDITION DETAIL: Jacket: Lacking. Presentation: pristine. Pages: pristine. Binding: spine with 1 mm slant, otherwise fine; pages turn perfectly. Gilt: pristine. Boards: Nearly Fine, trace shelf wear to tips and foot & crown edges, a few rubs to rear side. Address Label: Very Good: edge toning to inner border and a top tip with light wear. PAGINATION: Confirmed complete, 256 pages, including title page with a b/w vignette portrait of Armstrong in his stand-up boxing stance + photo suite at pp 128-129 with 8 captioned, b/w photograph plates. SIZE: 211 x 146 mm (8.31 x 5.75 inches). ARMSTRONG: a professional boxer 1931-45, universally considered one of the greatest pound-for-pound fighters, renowned for his relentless brutal style and incredible stamina. He successfully defended his World Welterweight Championship a record 18 times and in 2007 Ring Magazine ranked him the second-greatest fighter. In almost any ranking, he is selected as one of the top ten fighters in history. In 1938 he became the only fighter to simultaneously hold world boxing championships in three weight class divisions, (Featherweight-126 lbs, Lightweight-135 lbs, and Welterweight-147 lbs), at a time when there were only 8 weight class divisions and one sanctioning organization. At his likely peak in 1937-38, Armstrong won 27 straight matches by KO and from 1937 to 1940 he lost only one fight and had a record against top competition of 59-1-1 with 51 wins by KO. After his boxing career ended Armstrong went through bad times because of addiction and the loss of his multi-million dollar fight earnings, but he endured, re-found his religious faith (1949), and became an ordained Baptist minister with the Morning Star Baptist Church in 1951, principally working with at risk young men in East Los Angeles and St. Louis, founding the Henry Armstrong Youth Foundation and directing the Herbert Hoover Boys Club. He helped to fund the foundation with earnings from his autobiography. "This seems a natural time to set down, as simply and honestly as I can, the most important things that have happened to me and through me, up to now-because my life, though not very long in years, has reached a turning point."

      New York: Macaulay Company, 1929. First edition. Hardcover. 262pp. Octavo [19.5 cm] Brown cloth with title stamped in black on the front board and backstrip. Near fine. Thurman&#39;s first published novel offers a frank portrayal of prejudice within the black community, and was divisive among the public and critics alike. Thurman was already fairly well known within the "Harlem Renaissance", but the publication of this work would announce his talents to a wider audience, and would help to cement his reputation as a writer who would take on unpopular (and sometimes uncomfortable) subjects.

        Collection of 88 original art works by Rosy Lilienfeld: Die Legende des Baalschem [SIGNED]

      - A unique collection of 88 signed original drawings by the German-Jewish artist Rosy Lilienfeld, contained within two portfolios created consecutively in 1929 and 1930, illustrating the short stories of Martin Buber's Die Legenden des Baalschem, parts one and two. Together with Lilienfeld's bilingual art book Bilder zu die Legenden des Baalschem/Pictures to the Legend of Baalschem, in which all 33 original drawings from the first portfolio are reproduced, published by the noted press R. Löwit Verlag (Leipzig und Wien, 1935). Executed in charcoal and pencil on paper, the 12.5 x 9-inch drawings remain in their original 19.5 x 12.5-inch mats, which are signed and dated by the artist and indicate, in typed and handwritten notes, their positions within Lilienfeld's series and Buber's text. They identify the Buber edition from which Lilienfeld worked as Die Legende des Baalschem, Frankfurt: Literarische Anstalt, Rütten und Loening, 1922. The drawings illustrate 14 legends, originally transmitted orally in Yiddish, that recount the spiritual triumphs and teachings of the founder of modern Chassidism, Rabbi Israel ben Elieser (c. 1700-1760), known as the Baal Schem Tov or "Master of the Good Name." They depict scenes where the mundane and the phantasmagorical superimpose, tableaux of cosmic struggle and mystical transformation, of ecstasy, sorrow, sympathy and enchantment, in folkloric settings where the natural world embodies human emotions. With dramatic titles such as "The Fire Prince" and "The Martyrs and the Revenge" the tales illuminate moments of awakening and empowerment, where the child Baal Schem might pluck the heart from a demonic werewolf, or allow a dead bride-to-be to rise from her grave and be married.Lilienfeld's powerful rendition of the Eastern European tales has a dreamlike, almost nostalgic quality-something of memories endowed with magic. Her stylistic choreography endows the suites deeply with a quality of interplay: suggestions of the Expressionists' modern, primal style in the service of powerful Jewish mythos, at a time when the traditional and the modern, history and legend, religious and secular mingled briefly in Frankfurt, before European Jewry was consumed by war. While Lilienfeld did not survive, her work remains a document of that extraordinary moment.

        Vol. 10A of 29 Atlases of Insurance Maps for Brooklyn. Kensington, South Prospect Park & Borough Park

      Sanborn Map Company, New York 1929 - This volume includes the terminus of Prospect Expressway, the underground route of the Long Island Railroad and Old Washington Cemetery. The Sanborn map collection consists of a uniform series of large scale maps, dating from 1867 to the present depicting the commercial, industrial, and residential sections of some twelve thousand cities and towns in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The maps were designed to assist fire insurance agents in determining the degree of hazard associated with a particular property and therefore show the size, shape and construction of dwellings, commercial buildings, and factories as well as fire walls locations of windows and doors, sprinkler systems, and types of roofs. The maps also indicate widths and names of streets, property boundaries, building use, and house and block numbers. They show locations of water mains, giving their dimensions, and of fire alarm boxes and hydrants. Sanborn maps are an unrivaled source of information about the structure and use of buildings in American Cities. The collection includes some fifty thousand editions of fire insurance maps comprising an estimated seven hundred thousand individual sheets. The Library of Congress holdings represent the largest extant collection of maps produced by the Sanborn Map Company. The majority of the maps were acquired by the Library through copyright deposit, but the collection was substantially enriched in 1967 when the Bureau of the Census transferred to the Library of Congress a complete set. The 1,899 loose-leaf binders were particularly noteworthy because they included later editions than those previously acquired by the Library. The Bureau of the Census set of maps had been regularly updated by printed, paste-on corrections supplied by the Sanborn Map Company, whereas the Library of Congress copies were retained in the form in which they were copyrighted. Atlas. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Massive elephant folio. Decorative calligraphic titles, indices, and key maps. Contains a set of 76 detailed maps of southern Brooklyn along with changes recorded on paste-on correction slips through 1973. Quarter leather binding with gilt title on front and spine. Tear to spine and lower right corner of original protective canvas cover. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Imagerie *

      Tour Philippe-le-Bel, Villeneuve-lès-Avignon (1929). - Broché, couverture illustrée d'une photographie. Quelques accrocs au dos, tache à un angle du premier plat. Voir la longue notice de notre catalendrier 1998 au sujet de ce premier livre, abondamment censuré par l'éditeur-écrivain Edmond Gilliard, alors à la tête des "Petites lettres de Lausanne", où il fut originellement publié. L'auteur fit effectuer, probablement à ses frais, cette rapide réimpression corrigée en France voisine, d'aspect artisanal (le titre n'est-il pas bleuté au tampon ?) et de piètre qualité mais restituant le texte primitif. Landry s'explique sur ces mésaventures, non prendre sans plaisir d' égratigner maître Edmond au passage, dans une préface situant le contexte de cette deuxième édition.Notre exemplaire, le meilleur, est le premier de la tranche de tirage unique annoncée, signé par l'écrivain.De toute rareté. Première édition intégrale. L'un des 250 exemplaires numérotés (1) et signés.

        Fête des vignerons *

      Horizons de France, Paris 10.11.1929. - Broché, couverture imprimée bicolore. La réimpression profondément remaniée de ce texte (d'où le changement de titre) et même récrit en grande partie - dixit Bringolf, publié sous le label originel du "Passage du poète", paraît dans cette collection dirigée par Henri Pourrat . En 1926 déjà celui-ci défendait l'oeuvre de Ramuz, entre autre cet ouvrage, dans l'ouvrage collectif des "Cahiers de la Quinzaine", un fort volume de trois cents pages consacrée à notre écrivain.Cet exemplaire en deuxième papier devrait convenir à un amateur philosophe, à défaut de l'introuvable Auvergne, on peut toujours demander, à moins qu'un Alfax avec envoi soit plus excitant ?.[Bringolf 30c] Édition en partie originale. L'un des 170 exemplaires numérotés sur vélin pur fil Lafuma, outre 55 Auvergne et 330 Alfax.
