        The House at Pooh Corner. With Decorations by Ernest H. Shepard.

      London: Methuen & Co. Ltd., 1929 - Octavo. Original pink cloth, titles to spine and pictorial design to front cover gilt, top edge gilt. With the dust jacket. Housed in a black quarter morocco soalnder box by the Chelsea Bindery. Spine bumped, partial tanning to half title and colophon, dust jacket nicked and chipped to corners. Illustrated throughout by E. H. Shepard. Third edition. With an original pen and ink drawing on the title page by Shepard of Winnie-the-Pooh in full traditional Russian costume including a fur hat and playing a balalaika, signed beneath the image. Rare thus. Milne began planning his final Pooh book in 1927. Three years of intense publicity were taking their toll on the family, and Milne longed to return full-time to adult literature, telling his brother that "after one more Pooh book I must think of something else. In fact, it's time I tried a novel" (Thwaite p. 328). Christopher Robin was growing up, soon to leave for boarding school, and The House at Pooh Corner would be a farewell. But first there was an introduction to be made. Milne had bought his son a stuffed tiger, "Tigger", and told Shepard that he was longing to see the illustrations for this new character, who would become one of the author's most popular creations. Published on 11 October 1928, The House at Pooh Corner was received by critics with a delight tinged by sadness. "The Times Literary Supplement congratulated Milne on avoiding 'the temptation to repeat his successful formula mechanically', though it was 'sad to see the stories end'" (Thwaite p. 336); but the stories have never ended for the millions of children who continue to wander the Hundred Acre Wood, where "a little boy and his bear will always be playing".

        Original design by Sonia Delaunay

      Pen on paper, 90 x 75 mm, sheet 240 x 175 mm, initialled by the artist lower right and inscribed by her above the work 'A Monsieur et Madame Jacob Baal Teshuva. Sonia Delaunay, Paris 20-12-69'; laid down on archival board. Delaunay's sketched design, in the form of a monogram representing her initials 'S D', is inscribed by the artist for her friends Jacob Baal-Teshuna (b. 1929), renowned author, art critic and collector, and his wife, Aviva (1940-2016), who was also an artist. The career of Russian-born colourist Sonia Delaunay spanned seven decades, from the Belle Epoque to the 1970s. After studying in Germany, in 1905 she settled in Paris, where she would remain for most of her life. From around 1911, along with her husband, Robert Delaunay, she pioneered a particular branch of Cubism known as Simultanism (or Orphism, as it was termed by Apollinaire), which was based on the colour theory developed in the nineteenth century by Michel Eugène Chevreul (De la loi du contraste simultanée des couleurs, Paris, 1839). In this abstract style, form is subjugated to colour: the vital rhythm of a work is created by the interaction of overlapping and juxtaposed contrasting colours. As a multi-disciplinary artist, Delaunay constantly refined her Simultanist approach, producing work up until the late 1970s in a diversity of media and across the applied arts - notably in designs for theatre and ballet, fashion, textiles and architecture - and collaborating with writers such as Blaise Cendrars and Tristan Tzara. A major figure in the European avant-garde, her distinctive abstractionist aesthetic has influenced artists from Paul Klee through to contemporary fashion designers. Sonia Delaunay was the first living female artist to be honoured with a retrospective at the Louvre (1964); more recently, a major retrospective of her work was held at the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (17 October 2014 to 22 February 2015) and the Tate Modern in London (15 April to 9 August 2015).

        [Manuscripts]: [Volume One]: The Sambo Book; [Volume Two]: Romance of Sugar Loaf Mountain; Sambo and the Grapes; Pigs and Potato Club

      Baltimore, New York. 1929-1938. Two volumes. A collection of racist dialect manuscripts by Isaac Coale, Jr. Bradbound into generic oak tag wrappers, one with the label of Isaac Coale, Jr., & Co. on the front wrap. Typed leaves (with mixed ribbon and carbon pages), with corrections in type and in pencil. Letter from Norman Vincent Peale dated in 1936 lauding the stories bound into the second volume. Signed by the author, at various places, as Isaac Coale, Sambo, or "Nigger Jim."The Baltimore (and later New York City) based Coale, Jr. wrote his book Sambo Stories which was published by Baltimore publisher Williams & Wilkins Company in 1898 with illustrations by Katharine Gassaway, predating Helen Bannerman's Little Black Sambo (which was published in England) by one year. Coale appears to have been a successful business man dealing in real estate and insurance in Baltimore, and later in "Burnrite Combustion Devices" in New York City. OCLC locates just four copies of the original 1898 printed edition. At that time, three copies are be found offered online for sale, with prices ranging between $1200 - $9500.The two volumes are as follows:1. Sambo Book by Isaac Coale. Baltimore and New York. Handwritten title page, a typed chapter list with hand-corrections, a second chapter list on the back of Isaac Coale, Jr. & Co. stationary (changing the name "Sambo" to "Lucy's Little Manservant" in each chapter), eight handwritten chapter title pages, each dated 1929, and 106 leaves of text that have been typed rectos only, plus an additional typed leaf hand-titled "Sambo's Song" and "signed" by "Sambo." Mostly clean copies with modest corrections in pencil. Although no illustrations are present, several of the chapter headings note "Illustrated by Roberta G. Glover." Our speculation is that the author was preparing a second edition which was never published. The original 1898 edition had five chapters that conform (with slight variations in title) to five of these chapters, but three of the chapters present here appear to be unique to this manuscript. The alterations on the variant chapter title lists exhibits perhaps the slightest development of racial sensitivity, changing "Sambo" to "Lucy's Little Manservant," although the character in question remains "Sambo" in the text.2. A collection of three stories. Typed leaves, heavily corrected in pencil. As follows:a. "Romance of Sugar Loaf Mountain." Typed title, with author's address in pencil, and 18 additional pages of text. Typed Letter Signed from the Rev. Norman Vincent Peale is bound in following the title page of this story. b. "Sambo and the Grapes." Handwritten title, illustration from newspaper with typed title ("Sambo and the Grapes"), and five additional typed pages, Signed in ink by "Sambo."c. "Pigs and Potato Club of Coonville, Georgia." Typed title page and four chapters, totaling another 13 pages of text typed on the verso of Isaac Coale, Jr. & Co. stationary, and Signed in pencil as both "Nigger Jim." and Isaac Coale. The final three leaves are laid in, apparently never bound with the others. The text masquerades as reports of the minutes of a black social club, reminiscent of the racist satire of The Lime-Kiln Club.Presumably a substantial amount of the material found in this manuscript is unpublished and unique. .

        Shreve, Lamb & Harmon Plans for the Empire State Building's Information Desk, Basement and Foundation.

      1929-1930., New York: 1929 - Architectural diagram plans for the construction of the Empire State Building. 14 items, all pencil on paper or tracing vellum, various sizes ranging from 8x13 inches to 36x48 inches. Included are 5 plot plans showing the building's outline and the surrounding streets and properties, 5 section plans of existing vaults and the machine room, 2 sub-basement plans, and the details of the pit for the refrigeration unit. Condition varies, but is generally very good; most of the plans have minor folds or tears in the margins. The freight elevator plan has some tape repairs on the reverse, but is not obtrusive. A plan showing a map of 34th and 33rd Streets has the most damage, with tears in the margin, some pieces missing, and some significant wrinkling; probably the least important plan in this collection. The 102 story landmark Empire State Building was completed in 1931 on the former site of the original Waldof-Astoria Hotel. The cost of construction was about $41 million (estimates suggest that today's cost would be close to $600 million), and was completed in less than a year and a half. The building was designed by William Lamb, of Shreve, Lamb and Harmon, whose plans are included in this collection. Considered as the "Eight Wonder of the World", when it opened, the building has had its share of notoriety, both good and bad. Suicides, a shooting on the observation deck, and even a plane crashing into it in 1945, have been part of the dark side of the building's history. However, this iconic art deco building is as popular as ever, and probably one of the busiest tourist attractions in New York City. One of the most significant parts of this architectural collection is the plan for the rather famous information desk. Other parts include plans for the sub-basement, the machine room, pit for the freight elevators and refrigeration unit, and several plans illustrating the building's outline on the surrounding streets. A unique collection of New York City history. History1900s about website.

        31 e. Briefe und Briefkarten an den österr. Schriftsteller Hanns Saßmann (1882-1944).

      Friedell aus München (1929) an Hanns Saßmann : "Hier ist es fabelhaft: Gebirgsluft, Gebirgstrotteln und, wenn man in Schwabing wohnt, kein einziger Bekannter. Im innern Höllenkreis, der immerhin einen halben Kilometer von Schwabing entfernt ist, tun sich grauenhafte Dinger, von denen Gerüchte bis hierher dringen: Reinhardt probiert bis 5 Uhr früh und Thomas Mann liest Bruchstücke vor .."
