very minimal shelf wear to spine, small tear in fold out map after pg 231, stain on inside front cover from a newspaper article that was stored in the book, inscription and notation on the inside front cover.

Chicago, The Lakeside Press, copyright 1929 by Capital Reservation Lands Chicago. Hardcover, no dust jacket, illustrated, original green cloth boards with gilt lettering. No marks with the exception of an inscription which is on the cover page along with a notation from the owner's wife. The binding is tight and in good condition, the text is clean. The book includes 64 illustrations, most of which are photographs, plus a fold out map of the XIT Ranchland. There is an introduction by John V. Farwell and an acknowledgment by Haley crediting Farwell with his assistance in writing the book. It has been said the original book was the author's first book and is considered the best book about a Texas ranch and that a lawsuit required most of the original editon to be recalled and suppressed so the remaining true first edition are quite scarce. The inscription says "To mi amigo viejo, Tom Talle, L.A. Hughes." L.A. Hughes was the President of First National Bank of Santa Fe, New Mexico at the time. Tom Talle had been the Sheriff in McKinley County, in the Territory of New Mexico, before New Mexico achieved statehood and was at one time one of the biggest cattle owners in the United States.

Malevich, Kazimir, Russian painter and art theoretician (1879-1935)
[Moscow], 22. V, 1929. Small 4to. 2 pp. In Russian, to his third wife, Natalya, on meetings with commissioners for foreign trade, an official trip, etc. "[...] I'm dreadfully tired, wandering through the storeys like a travelling salesman, visiting all companies there, hurrying from one manager to the other; I just finished my work at the Tretyakova yesterday, on the 20th. Then I went to Nemchinovka, but only for a while, but at least Klyun was there, and so we went to Barvikha. Unochka scolded me for being away from home so often, but it took me a whole week only to get the porcelain thing settled. My meetings and appointments with various officials from the People's Commissariat for Foreign Trade as well as myself make a huge impression. I even imagined myself the lying stone under which no water flows, and when this stone rose the water began to swirl and to bubble. But by now, everything is set up. And everything seems to be quite well now, but let us see. The People's Commissariat for Foreign Trade promptly sent a note to the Leningrad porcelain factory telling them to enter negotiations with me at once, also to the Silicate Trest and the Wallpaper Trest etc. What with all this bustle, Suyetin and I will have so much to do that I can't tell how we shall stand it. It has already come so far that Exports is going to send me on a business trip abroad. Today (Wednesday) I'm giving my lecture to the assistants, all of Thursday I will spend with Unochka, and on Friday I'm going to buy the ticket, though I do not know for which day they'll give me one. I long for you and fear … [Click Below for Full Description]

SHAKESPEARE'S WORKS. Nonesuch Press, ed. by Herbert Farjeon. 1929-33, New York, 1929. Hardcover. One of 1,600 copies (This #969).(9 1/2 x 6 1/4). Seven beautiful volumes. Niger morocco covers with gilt double fillet frame, raised bands, gilt titling on spines, top edges gilded on the rough, outer edges. Texts based on the First Folio and Quartos, with variants plus several plays Shakespeare may have contributed to. Spines are uniform, suggesting little use. Discoloration is often evident to the leather of all 1600 sets, and there is some staining as shown in the photos (photos 3 and 4 are of vols. 4 & 6); however, these affect the integrity of the the leather not at all and the pages, etc., are whole and fine. This edition is often considered the most beautiful set of Shakespeare ever printed and a high point of the Nonesuch Press. This is a beautiful set for the shelf and the reader. Will send safely via Priority Mail.

Radclyffe Hall
The Well of Loneliness by Radclyffe Hall Signed Victory Edition New York: Covici-Friede, 1929. Signed limited edition. Copy 129 of 225 numbered copies of The Victory Edition, signed by Radclyffe Hall and with a specially designed title page by S. A. Jacobs. Two volumes bound in publisher's blue paper over beige cloth covered boards, stamped in silver, in publisher's blue paper-covered card slipcase with matching number. Near Fine with slight darkened spines, with titles lightly rubbed; lightly dust-soiled. Small evidence of sticker removal to front free end paper of Volume I. In a Very Good slipcase, toned, soiled and shelf worn, rubbed at the extremities and with a split to one top joint, and a split starting on a bottom joint as well. The book faced a wave of suppression as the plot follows the life of a lesbian, openly portraying her "sexual inversion" as natural during a time when homosexuality was not openly discussed. Evidence of the struggle against censorship can be seen here, as this edition was dubbed "The Victory Edition" on account a victory won in court over censorship in the United States.

TZARA Tristan
- Kra, Paris 1929, 13x19cm, broché. - Edizione originale sulla carta corrente. autografo prezioso firmato da Tristan Tzara inizialmente a Paul Eluard: "Paul Eluard Tristan Tzara nel luglio 1929 .." Tristan Tzara ha colpito di dividere, in una seconda fase, un autografo invio firmato e datato Rene char: "un char René con tutti i grandi amici di Tristan Tzara arricchito un piccolo disegno di una mano indicando il suo nome." Libro illustrato con 10 disegni di Hans Arp. Bella copia di una sorgente in movimento. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Édition originale sur papier courant. Double envoi autographe signé et daté de Tristan Tzara, d'abord à Paul Éluard - « à Paul Éluard. Tristan Tzara. Juillet 1929 » - puis, après avoir biffé cette première dédicace, à René Char en septembre 1934 : « à René Char avec toute l'amitié grande de Tristan Tzara ». Ce second envoi est enrichi d'un petit dessin par Tzara, une main qui désigne de l'index le nom de Char. À l'automne 1934, quand Tzara dédicace l'ouvrage à Char, les deux poètes commencent à s'éloigner du surréalisme. Ils forment alors, avec René Crevel et Roger Caillois, un petit groupe très critique à l'égard d'André Breton et notamment de ses positions sur le Parti communiste. Tzara comme Char quittera le mouvement quelques mois plus tard, jugeant le surréalisme contraire à la révolution. Bel exemplaire d'une provenance remarquable, superbe preuve du rapprochement décisif dans l'histoire du surréalisme de Tzara et de Char.

Eleanor Scott
Benn, UK. 1st Edition 1929. An incredibly rare horror book. Eleanor Scott has vanished into almost as much obscurity as her 1929 collection of ghost stories, which has been described as ‘rare but superlative’, and which figures highly on the wants lists of many ghost story collectors. The nine tales in the collection were all inspired by dreams, and in her foreword the author hopes that they will have lost none of their terror in the translation from dream to story. She need not have worried: this is one of the best and most chilling collections of ghost stories ever written. Book is very good, clean, square and tight. Spine very slightly lightened. Light edge rubbing. Contents good. Light surface loss to endpaper centre. Includes a 1st generation facsimile wrapper. More images can be taken upon request.

Crowley, Aleister (The Master Therion)
Paris: Privately Published [Printed at the Lecram Press], 1929. First Edition. First Edition, first issue. In four sections (volumes). Section 1 printed in 1929, the remaining sections likely printed in 1930. Quarto (measures 11 1/4” x 7 5/8”). Original salmon-colored wrappers with black title and unicursal hexagram in black to front. xxxii + 124, 123-206, 207-302, 303-438 pp. Tipped-in full color plate (the lamen of the Master Therion) to section one, after contents page. Signs of the Grades sheet tipped-in between pages 374 and 375 in Section 4. Original wrappers have some wear and rubbing, mostly to the front and back of section one, with wear and some chipping to spine paper exposing the signatures at head and foot. There is also a small triangular corner piece missing to back cover of section 1 (see photos). Wrappers to sections 2 and 3 have fared pretty well with just some light edge wear. Section 4 wrappers show some light wear to spine with a couple of clean tears. A few sporadic spots to pages, again, mostly in the first section. Bindings are sound but the paper wrappers are a bit fragile, as is usual with this edition. All in all a very good copy of this scarce first issue. Here we have the elusive first issue of Crowley's magnum opus; an exceptional work issued in four parts. It provides a complete system of Ceremonial Magic as only The Master Therion could write it. It is here presented as Crowley originally intended and should be studied and meditated upon deeply so one can have the pleasure of struggling with it on its own terms before consulting later editio … [Click Below for Full Description]

1929. Foto-auge - Oeil et photo - Photo-eye ROH, FRANZ / JAN TSCHICHOLD Published by Akademischer Verlag dr. Fritz Wedekind & Co., Stuttgart, 1929 VG Edition: First Edition Description: 18 pag text (German / French / English) + 76 monochrome photographs Franz Roh (February 21, 1890 - December 30, 1965), was a German historian, photographer, and art critic. He is perhaps best known for his 1925 book Nach Expressionismus: Magischer Realismus: Probleme der neuesten europäischen Malerei ("After expressionism: Magical Realism: Problems of the newest European painting") he coined the term magic realism. Roh was born in Apolda (in present-day Thuringia), Germany. He studied at universities in Leipzig, Berlin, and Basel. In 1920, he received his Ph. D. in Munich for a work on Dutch paintings of the 17th century. As a photographer and critic, he absolutely hated photographs that were to be like a painting, charcoal, or drawings. During the Nazi regime, he was isolated and briefly put in jail for his book Foto-Auge (Photo-Eye); he used his jail time he used to write the book Der Verkannte Künstler: Geschichte und Theorie des kulturellen Mißverstehens ("The unrecognized artist: history and theory of cultural misunderstanding"). After the war, in 1946, he married art historian Juliane Bartsch. He died in Munich. Roh and magic realism[edit] Roh is perhaps best remembered as the critic who coined the term magic realism--a translation of his Magischer Realismus--which he first used in 1925 in "Magic Realism: Post-Expressionism," an essay about the visual arts. But, though the lineage is d … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ernest Hemingway's third full-length novel following The Torrents of Spring and The Sun Also Rises. Very good example in fine facsimile wrapper. The story recounts the romance between Frederic Henry, an American soldier, and Catherine Barkley, a British nurse. Heavily autobiographical, the plot was directly inspired by Hemingway's relationship with Agnes von Kurowsky in Milan. Catherine's parturition (childbirth) was inspired by the intense labor pains of Pauline in the birth of Patrick - Ernest' second wife and second son - and the real-life Kitty Cannell inspired the fictional Helen Ferguson. The priest was based on Don Giuseppe Bianchi, the priest of the 69th and 70th regiments of the Brigata Ancona. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. 355 pages. Insured post.
