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]

Very Good/New. A FAREWELL TO ARMS Ernest Hemingway CHARLES SCRIBNER'S SONS NEW YORK 1929 First edition, first printing. Scribner colophon at copyright page; no disclaimer verso dedication page. Smooth, coated, black cloth boards w/gold cover and spine labels stamped in black ink, moderate shelf wear, rub. Bind good; hinges intact. Deckled pages near fine; tanning inside covers. Stylish antiquarian name at front endpaper: "Frances Witte". First state Cleon facsimile dj w/Catherine Barkley misspelled as Katherine Barclay; protected in new, clear sleeve. Very attractive. Rare. 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.

Virginia Woolf
England: Hogarth Press, 1929. Please review description and photos carefully. PLEASE NOTE, DELIVERY SERVICE MAY BE POSSIBLE, SEE BELOW. January 25th is Virginia Woolf's birthday. Still missing you, dear woman. If you desire to own a profound bit of literary history, you have an opportunity here with this First Edition of Virginia Woolf's A ROOM OF ONE'S OWN. If you are looking for the extremely rare, original Vanessa Bell dust jacket, this book has it. Only a scant handful of these fragile jackets still exist worldwide--and most are priced considerably higher. Please see all photos for condition. The binding is still very tight and sound. Cover shows damage typical of the Bell covers. It has separated along spine, as well as missing part of spine and portion of top front of book.

Ernest Hemingway - A Farewell To Arms - First Edition Signed and inscribed by the author on the front endpaper, to Eleanor "Nellie' Lathrop (1859 - 1940), an American author and apparent acquaintance of Hemingway. The inscription reads "To Eleanor // My old rummy pal // With much affection // Ernest". An unknown hand has added [Lathrop] to the inscription in pencil, likely someone from Brentano's bookstore. Letter of provenance from the original owner included in this listing. New York, Charles Scribner's Sons, 1929. True first edition, in the first state dust jacket. Octavo, Original black cloth, paper title label to spine and upper board printed in black on a gold ground. Scribner's seal and 1929 on copyright page. The first printing run of A Farewell To Arms did not include the legal disclaimer 'None of the characters in this book is a living person, nor are the units or military organizations mentioned actual units or organizations - E. H.' which was added before the text started in the second printing, and every print thereafter. This copy has no such disclaimer, and is therefore the true first printing of the first edition. This is the first state jacket, evidenced by the 'Katherine' misspelling. The true first state dust jacket had the heroine's name misspelled on the front flap. Instead of 'Catherine Barclay' it reads 'Katherine Barclay'. Front hinge professionally repaired. One small area of touch-up to the outside of the front hinge which is imperceptible.

1929. Extraordinary Association copy, signed and inscribed by the author on the half-title page: " For Henry Pfeiffer, yours very truly, Ernest Hemingway, Piggot-December 31-1932". Henry Pfeiffer was a philanthropist and uncle to Hemingway's second wife Pauline Pfeiffer. Paul Pfeiffer, Pauline's father, and uncles Henry and G. A. founded Pfeiffer Pharmaceutical Company. Paul left the company and moved his family to Piggott, Arkansas to make a life for his family. This copy was signed and inscribed in Piggott, the family's estate, to his wife's uncle Henry. Ernest's marriage to Pauline and the influence of the Pfeiffer family was incredibly important to Hemingway's life, career, and literary endeavors. During the course of their thirteen year marriage, Hemingway started and/or finished "A Farewell to Arms", "Winner Take Nothing", "Green Hills of Africa", "To Have and Have Not", "The Fifth Column and the First Forty-Nine Stories", and "For Whom the Bells Tolls". Pauline's father Paul even renovated the family barn in Piggott into a workspace for Hemingway. Uncle G. A. Pfeiffer was the couple's benefactor, having purchased homes for them in Key West and Paris, as well as purchasing cars for them, and more importantly, financing an African Safari in 1933 which became the basis of Hemingway's novels, "Green Hills of Africa", as well as for the short stories "The Snows of Kilimanjaro" and "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber". This book, A Farewell to Arms was dedicated to G. A. Pfeiffer by Hemingway. "A Farewell to Arms" also has a Pfeiffer connection with the dramatic endi … [Click Below for Full Description]

We and the Baby. By Hector MacQuarrie. Australia: Angus & Robertson, 1929. First edition. 38 illustrations on 15 plates (some double-sided), all black and white photographs except for the map. Signed and inscribed by the author to William Robert Charlton, editor of the Sydney Mail (in which the narrative was originally serialized), and sole recipient of thanks in the book's Preface (in the inscription, MacQuarrie credits Charlton with the book's title). The inscription is also signed underneath by Richard B. Matthews, MacQuarrie's companion and mechanic for the groundbreaking journey. A rare book in any edition (this is the first and best, with more photos), this is an account of an expedition (mostly off-road) in a 'Baby' Austin 7. Having driven from Sydney to Cairns (where the narrative begins), they followed a rough road up to Cooktown, and then drove 1000 kilometers through the bush to the northernmost tip of continental Australia on Cape York Peninsula, becoming the first motorists to reach that point. A world-exploring, novel-writing, Cambridge-educated, Scottish, homosexual World War One veteran who also dabbled in colonial administration, MacQuarrie was himself quite a character. The book is in good plus condition. External wear is moderate, with some wear to extremities, rubbing to spine text, slight stains, minor scuffs. The spine is significantly slanted. There is very slight bowing to the front board. The pages show sporadic light foxing, a few minor creases, otherwise clean. The binding is intact and reasonably firm.

Woolf, Virginia
1929. Condition: Very Good. FIRST EDITION with Dust Jacket. Original cinnamon cloth, gilt on the spine quite bright & unrubbed, in the rare original dust jacket. This has had archival restoration at the top & bottom of the spine and at the corners. Hardly perceptible. Previous owner's signature on front free end page and light discoloring to same else EXCELLENT condition in VERY GOOD+ dust jacket. Woolf's seminal essay on women and writing has become a classic feminist text: Woolf's "aim was to establish a woman's tradition, recognizable by its circumstances, subject-matter, and its distinct problems. A Room of One's Own charted this vast territory with an air of innocent discovery which itself sharpens the case against induced ineffectiveness and ignorance that for so long clouded the counter-history of women" "A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction," said Woolf, "and that, as you will see, leaves the great problem of the true nature of woman and the true nature of fiction unsolved." One of the most influential and progressive texts of 20th century literary feminism "A Room of One's Own" is based on Virginia Woolf's Cambridge lectures called 'Women and Fiction' given at two women's colleges, the Arts Society at Newnham and the Odtaa at Girton in October 1928. Virginia Woolf makes her way through the shelves of the British Library, and thus playfully, through the history, education and writing of women in England, their marginalisation and struggle to be creative and defy convention. She analyses as well as exposes Britain as a patriarchal … [Click Below for Full Description]
