        Dark Star.

      Indianapolis, IN: The Bobs-Merrill Company, 1929 - Octavo. Original black cloth, white cloth backstrip, titles to spine in black and red, red top-stain. With the dust jacket. A little pale spotting to boards, top stain faded. An excellent copy in the jacket with faded spine panel, a few minor nicks, and a short closed tear to the lower panel. First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Jean Hersholt, a great artist, from the author of this book, Lorna Moon". With the bookplate of the Motion Picture Country House tipped-in above the inscription and two MPCH ink stamps to the front pastedown. The author, Nora Low, grew up in Aberdeenshire but eventually moved to the US and became a Hollywood screenwriter, working on a number of hits in the 1920s, including Mr. Wu starring Lon Chaney, Don't Tell Everything (1921) starring Gloria Swanson, and Her Husband's Trademark (1922), with Gloria Swanson and directed by Cecil B. DeMille, Love (1927), and Anna Karenina starring Greta Garbo. She also wrote two semi-autobiographical literary works: the short story collection Doorways in Drumorty, (1925), and the present novel, Dark Star (1929), which was adapted as the film Min and Bill in 1930. Both were based on her childhood in a small, inward looking town in Scotland and explore similar themes including "the particular codes and conventions created by such a closed community, patterns of surveillance, strictures of public morality, evidence of private despair. They engage with the margins of this world, presenting itinerants, outcasts, and misfits with a distinct lack of sentimentality. Low's work is also striking in its awareness of the position of women in the community: her stories deal with minutiae, with networks of power which operate in apparently insignificant areas" (ODNB). Though Hersholt, one of the leading Hollywood actors of the early 20th century never appeared in a film written by Low, the two may have been acquainted either socially or professionally. The bookplate records that this copy was donated by Hersholt to the Motion Picture Country House, a retirement community for Hollywood figures that, as president of the Motion Picture Relief Fund, he was instrumental in founding in 1940. A lovely copy, uncommon in such nice condition, with an excellent association. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. With ten engravings on copper by David Jones

      Bristol: Douglas Cleverdon, 1929 One of 460 numbered copies out of a total edition of 470 copies. Off-white cloth over drab boards, gilt spine. . Quarto. With eight full-page copper-engravings by David Jones, plus a copper-engraved head- and tail-piece. Printed at the Fanfare Press in Arrighi types. Corners rubbed, minor soiling to binding. A very good, tight copy. This superb edition of the Ancient Mariner was the idea of Douglas Cleverdon, a young Bristol bookseller and later the powerful promoter of poetry on the BBC's Third Programme. In 1926 Cleverdon had visited Eric Gill at Capel-y-ffin, and there met David Jones (1895–1974), then a comparatively unknown young artist and poet: 'greatly daring, I asked David to engrave on copper eight illustrations with a headpiece and tailpiece, for Coleridge's The Rime of the Ancient Mariner'. Jones immediately agreed. 'He was a very agreeable companion', Cleverdon later remembered, 'relishing the humorous, but with an inexorable urge to get a thing right, whether it was a phrase, or a principle, or a brush-stroke in a water-colour. We were all devoted to him' (Cleverdon 1981, p. 16)" (John Dobson on his website devoted to the illustrators of The Ancient Mariner).

        Der Kunstnarr 1 April 1929 (all published)

      Dessau: The author 1929 - Octavo, wrappers, 40pp. With the note „Erscheint zunächst in zwangloser Folge,“ this journal only managed to produce one issue. Ernst ( Erno) Kállai was a Hungarian emigré author, journalist and art critic closely aligned with members of the Hungarian avant-garde in diaspora after 1919, and as a critic played an important role in the evolution from Expressionism into Constructivism, articulating and promoting Bauhaus principles both in Germany and Hungary (where he finally returned with the rise of Nazism). He was published widely in both countries from 1920, eventually being silenced by the communist regime after 1948. Despite its humble size, the articles generated a good amount of response among the readership, notably “Kunst und die grosse Publikum.” Artwork by Bauhäusler (Bayer, Schawinsky) and allied artists illustrated. Worldcat finds this in 7 North American libraries. This copy with chipped spine, creased rear cover, interior very good. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        47 Photographs of Mid-Atlantic Woodland and Shorebirds

      (Delaware / New Jersey). [circa 1929 - 1958]. A collection of 47 mounted photographs by the New Jersey-based photographer Benjamin Hiatt: 46 black & white prints, ranging in size from approximately 8" x 10" to 11" x 14", and one 8" x 10" color print. All are tipped onto artists boards, with some additionally in mat frames, most are Signed and captioned in pencil. A near fine group that features many beautiful close-up shots of wild birds in flight, on the surf, and at their nests: the Snowy Egret, Brown Pelican, Laughing Gull, Black Skimmer, and Piping Plover. Also a series of rare close-up portraits taken in the late 1920s, of a Spotted Ground-thrush and a Great Horned Owl at their nests, and another small set of coastline images. Just over half appear to have been taken in the 1950s in the vicinity of Tuckerton Bay on New Jersey's Atlantic Coast and the nearby Bass River State Forest. The rest, dating back to the 1920s, were taken in the vicinity of Sparta, New Jersey, near the Delaware Water Gap, and Delaware City, Delaware. These include three prints of a Spotted Ground-thrush perched on its nest, five prints of Great Horned Owls, and two dramatic prints of a Brown Pelican: standing at ease high up in a large nest, gazing directly at the camera; and in flight. All 47 photographs capture Hiatt's "ambition to photograph wild birds at home," which he first described in "A Study of Great Horned Owls in the Delaware City Heronry," published in a 1929 issue of the ornithological journal, Cassinia. He also published accounts of his important sightings in New Jersey, Delaware, and Florida in The Auk. A fine representative collection of Hiatt's best prints spanning a thirty year period. .

        The Middle Parts of Fortune. Somme & Ancre, 1916

      London: The Piazza Press issued to subscribers by Peter Davies, Ltd.,, 1929. 2 volumes, octavo. Original brown buckram, titles gilt to spines within double panel, top edges gilt, others uncut, red silk page-markers, marbled endpapers. Housed in the original red cloth slipcase. A few very slight scuffs to cloth. An excellent set. First edition, one of the limited, unexpurgated edition of 525 numbered copies. An excellent copy of a book perceived on publication as one of the most powerfully personal visions of the Great War. In Men at War Hemingway described it as "The finest and noblest book of men in war that I have ever read. I read it once each year to remember how things really were so that I will never lie to myself nor to anyone else about them," and T. E. Lawrence remarked that "No praise could be too sheer for this book … it justifies every heat of praise." The book was published in this limited edition in 1929, garnering informed praise and intemperate notoriety in close to equal measure, and an expurgated edition, under the title Her Privates We, was published the following year. But Manning never achieved fame and it was probably not until the re-issue of the full text in 1977 that the novel received the recognition that it deserved. Manning died of pneumonia at a nursing home in Hampstead in 1935. Extremely unusual to find in the original slipcase.

        Ulysses

      Samuel and Max Roth New York 1929. Good with no dust jacket First US Edition; First Printing Trade Paperback This copy survived water damage from fire due to previous clamshell box. Professionally restored and ozoned, but some wood smoke scent when opening pages. Chip to top corner of front cover, fragments of spine covering laid on to new spine, chip to bottom corner of rear cover. Some unopened pages. Some text damp-wrinkling, with some dampstaining primarily in margins (see scan). Solid trade paperback.; Modern custom clamshell box, with leather spine label with gilt lettering. Slocum and Cahoon 19. The First American edition (unauthorized). Although title page claims to be the 1927 Paris printing from Shakespeare and Company, this copy has all the proper points as the pirated American first. Most notably, the list of books By the Same Writer has publisher Jonathan Cape mispelled as "Jonthan Cape" (see scan) and there is no title and author on the spine. John J Slocum and Herbert Cahoon; A Bibliography of James Joyce [1882-1941]; 1953 Yale University Press. Slocum and Cahoon state that about 2, 000-3, 000 copies were printed by Adolph and Rudolph Loewinger of New York for Samuel Roth, publisher of Two Worlds and Two Worlds Monthly, and his brother Max Roth. "It was unauthorized by Joyce and sold illegally in the United States. Many copies of the piracy were seized by the Society for the Suppression of Vice on October 5, 1929." "Copies .. reached Paris and were imported into the United States as genuine copies. One of these, sent by Joyce to Bennett A Cerf of Random House, was used in setting up the first authorized American edition of Ulysses" in 1934." It is unclear how many copies of this pirated edition survived and it is rarely offered for sale. In 2007, the Modern Library named Ulysses # 1 in their list of top 100 novels. Despite the condition issues, this is an opportunity to own the quite uncommon 1929 first American printing of James Joyce's Ulysses, a highspot of modern literature.; [viii], 736 pages

      Copenhagen, Bianco Lunas, 1929. Royal 8vo. Bound with the original wrappers and the original back-strip in a fine half morocco binding with gilt lettering to spine (Signed "Ole Olsen 1978 Co´libri"). An exceptionally fine copy. 76 pp.. First edition of this collection of three articles translated into Danish and appearing as thus for the first time. Inscribed by Bohr (signed "the author") on the title-page: "Hr. Assistent cand. mag. V. Thorsen / med venlig Hilsen / fra Forfatteren". The work constitutes the first Danish translations of the present three articles: "Atomic Theory and Mechanics" (1925, Rosenfeld 33), "The Quantum Postulate and the Recent Development of Atomic Theory" (1928, Rosenfeld 37), and "Wirkungsquantum und Naturbeschreibung", (1929, Rosenfeld 39), here published together for the first time under the title "Atomic Theory and the Description of Nature" and with an introductory overview. The present collection of articles, translated into Danish, Bohr's mother tongue, constitutes an important insight into Bohr's thought and fundamental views on atomic theory and nature. The work, as it is here, has been elected as the Bohr-entry in the official list of Danish canonic literature, which collects the most important literary contributions to Danish culture. This is the only Bohr-item on the list. (see: http://www.kanonudvalget.dk). Rosenfeld, Bohr Bibliography No. 40

        Michelson?s economic value. Autograph manuscript signed

      1929. One Nobel Physics Laureate?s Tribute to Another Millikan, Robert (1868-1953). Michelson?s economic value. Autograph manuscript signed. 17pp. on 9 sheets, written in pencil with numerous corrections and emendations, Millikan?s signature in ink on the last page; accompanied by later typed transcript. N.p., n.d. [1929]. 280 x 218 mm. [With:] Typed letter signed from Millikan to Kenneth S. West. 1 page, on Caltech stationery. Pasadena, March 26, 1929. Together 2 items. Fine. Manuscript and letter preserved in a quarter morocco folding box. The working draft of Millikan?s address in tribute to his mentor and colleague Albert A. Michelson (1852-1931), delivered at a dinner honoring both men hosted by the Society of Arts and Sciences in New York, and later published as an article in Science (vol. 69 [1929]: 481-85). Both Millikan and Michelson were Nobel laureates: Millikan had received the Nobel Prize for physics in 1923 for his determination of the charge of the electron and his researches on the photoelectric effect; and Michelson was awarded the same prize in 1907 for his optical precision instruments and the measurements carried out with their aid?particularly his determination of the speed of light and the famous Michelson-Morley experiment, regarded as the first strong evidence against the existence of a luminiferous ether. It was Michelson who in 1897 gave Millikan his first teaching job, at the University of Chicago. While at Chicago Millikan worked as Michelson?s assistant, wrote several important textbooks, and performed the experimental research on the electron charge that helped gain him the Nobel Prize. Millikan went on to become vice chairman and director of the National Research Council, and then in 1921 moved to Pasadena to head the newly established California Institute of Technology. Millikan?s eloquent address honors the man who had exerted such a profound influence on his early career. In the course of his tribute, Millikan places Michelson?s work in the context of contemporary physics, noting its significance and interrelationship with the work of Einstein, Lebedev, Aston et al.: "The special theory of relativity may be regarded as merely a generalization of the famous Michelson and Morley experiment, another typical Michelsonian attempt to measure with great precision a quantity of fundamental importance, namely, the speed of the Earth through the ether. As everybody knows it came out negative, that is, no such speed, nor any trace of it, could be found . . . Einstein, in 1905, generalized the foregoing result by postulating that it is in the nature of the universe impossible to find the speed of the earth with respect to the ether. This postulate rests most conspicuously upon, and historically grew chiefly out of the negative result of the Michelson-Morley experiment" (p. 5). Millikan ended his address with a paean to the value of Michelson?s research and of scientific research in general: "Michelson?s economic value!! In the last analysis there is nothing that is practically important at all except our ideas, our group of concepts about the nature of the world and our place in it . . . There is not an idea that I have advanced tonight, a conclusion that I have drawn from Einstein?s equation, from Aston?s curve, from cosmic ray/data that would have been possible had not somebody driven to the limit the precision and physical measurement, and much of it became possible because of Michelson?s own super refined experiments. So true has it been proven to be that human progress ?grows out of measurement made in the sixth place of decimals.? Not he, nor anybody else, saw at the time what bearings the result would have. He merely felt in his bones, or knew in his soul, or had faith to believe that accurate knowledge was important. But some of the bearings have already appeared and others will continue to be found for ages yet to be" (p. 11). Millikan?s manuscript is accompanied by his brief letter to Kenneth West: ?As you request, I am returning the pencil notes that you sent on. Thank you very much for acceding to my request.?

        Autograph Letter Signed, 2 pp on one 4to sheet of stationery, Florence, Italy, Nov. 14, 1927

      Very Good. He writes to his sister-in-law, Else, about Beethoven, republication of his own works and comments on life in Florence. "Many thanks for the Beethoven letters - arrived today - not a literary man - & always in love with somebody - or thought he was - & in the flesh wasn't. But how German! - I mean the way he really wasn't...they want to publish one of my books next year & asks which I would suggest. I think I shall suggest Woman Who Rode Away, & The Princess (from the English St. Mawr) & a third story you haven't yet seen, 'None of That'...Or would you suggest one of the novels - The Lost Girl or Aaron's Rod...Only we'll keep back The Plumed Serpent & offer it translated to another firm for 1929....It has rained a bit here, but is sunny again...the country is full of colour, vines yellow, olives blue, pine very green. It is Monday, so the fusillade...shooting little birds is quieter - it makes me so mad...." He mentions that he is coughing less and will probably go to Florence Thursday. "There's a queer sort of unease in the air - as if the wrong sort of spirits were flying abroad in the unseen ether - but it may be my imagination...." He mentions his wife Freida and then his own writing. "I am dabbling at my poems, getting them ready for the 'Collected Poems'...I feel sort of uncertain & unstuck...." He signs with initials, "D.H.L." The literary references to Lawrence's own works including his work on his collected poems are exceptional, as is the comment, at the outset, about Beethoven's love life. A fine letter rich in literary reference.

        Urformen der Kunst. Photographische Pflanzenbilder. Hrsg. mit einer Einleitung von Karl Nierendorf. 2. Aufl.

      Berlin 1929. With 120 b/w plates. 4to. XVII pp. + plates. Publisher's green cloth with title stamped in gilt on frontcover and spine. Name on flyleaf.. As the first edition, published 1928, was in a smaller format, this 2nd edition is considered the most attractive; "Urformen der Kunst" is one of the most influential photographic books ever to have been published, and an icon of macrophotography. Parr & Badger I, pp. 96. "Toward the end of the 1920s, Karl Blossfeldt´s plates, published as URFORMEN DER KUNST, became one of the most-discussed photographic books of the interval between the wars. His plant studies, originally completed with a view to the commercial art classes, fascinated the contemporary Avant-garde, and still influence both conventional and conceptual photographers today" (Hans-Michael Koetzie)
