        Das Zauberboot [Moveable]

      Herbert Stuffer Berlin: Herbert Stuffer, 1929. First edition. Original color pictorial paper covered boards. Famed for its innovative illustration and compostion, "The Magic Boat" has become a classic and sought after early 20th Century Illustrated Chiildren's Book. Fully illustrated in color throughout with four pull-tabs on two separate double-moveable color illustated devices (each comprising two-page assemblies), a moveable hub reveaing rabbits and hedgehogs, adn the scarce and seldom found original perforated stencil (Nicths als Fruchte) at rear in half-page pouch. Benjamin describes this book as "the most beautiful of all new children's books" (Works III, 211). Cover with tread mark stains, binding weakened, hub intact, three of the four tabs are not working and need restoration. Still, a presentable copy which with a little care can be restored to excellent condition.

        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
