Gustave Michaut
L'Edition d'Art H. Piazza. Condition: Fine. One of 525 copies, quarto size, approx. [236] unnumbered pp., text in French. An anonymous medieval French "chantefable", "Aucassin and Nicolette" is a combination of prose and verse meant to be both recited and sung aloud. The manuscript, which dates from the twelfth or thirteenth centuries, was discovered in 1752 by French historian and medievalist Jean-Baptiste de La Curne de Sainte-Palaye. The story powerfully conveys the ardour of young love while cleverly parodying epic romances by presenting a smart and resourceful character in that of Nicolette, while Aucassin is portrayed as somewhat lacking in courage and respect, and has to be convinced to do his knightly duties. This edition is illustrated by French painter and illustrator Leon Georges Jean-Baptiste Carre (1878-1942), who was especially known for illustrating "The Book of One Thousand and One Nights." The editor, Gustave Michaut (1870-1946), was a lecturer in French literature and author of many scholarly texts. Printed by French printer Robert Coulouma (1887-1976) at his Imprimerie Coulouma d'Argenteuil, rue de Diane, who was greatly influenced by the aesthetic of the Renaissance and printers such as Sebastien Gryphe. This work would have been one of the most prominent commissions he did for bookseller/publisher Henri Jules Piazza (1861-1929). A glorious copy, in a deluxe full vellum binding with an elaborate hand-painted spine, exquisite art nouveau lettering and decorations, and delicate illustrations.

Rudolf Koch
Mainz, Germany: Mainzer Presse, 1929-1930. Condition: ___ All three volumes in near fine condition with light wear to the head of the spines, some rubbing to one corner, and a very light, stray mark on the front of Volumes I and III. Volume II has duplicate plate numbers 167-170 bound in, no plates missing. Quarto size. The idea for this work came from a trip Rudolph Koch took in Germany with his young children to gather wildflowers; he drew them, and then enlisted the help of his friend Fritz Kredel to make woodcuts from his drawings (from A Century for the Century by Hutner and Kelly). "Fritz Kredel learned his trade as assistant to Rudolph Koch, in Offenbach during the 1920's; by the time he left Germany he was a celebrated illustrator. The woodcut and pen and ink were his preferred mediums, and one of his masterpieces -- in collaboration with Koch -- was 'Das Blumenbuch' (''The Flower Book'') of 1929-30, for which Kredel cut more than 250 color flower illustrations in wood. Woodcuts, he felt, had a crispness and sharpness that could not be achieved in any other medium" (from a NY Times review of Centennial Exhibit of Kredel's work). The woodcuts were then hand-colored by Emil Wollner. DESCRIPTION: All text in German; each volume contains hand-colored plates printed on the rectos only, with each page displaying one flower, some arranged by season ("From Winter to Early Spring" and so on) or locale ("In the Meadow", etc); Table of Contents at the rear, a total of 250 plates between the three volumes.

Assembled by either Ernest C. Roschen or Joseph T. Singewald
Quicama, Angola, 1929. Unbound. Very good. The 79 b/w silver gelatin snapshots (61 different, 18 duplicates) vary in size; most are approximately 5.25" x 3.25" Twelve have typed or manuscript captions on their reverse. All slightly convex. The photos show the two white hunters (Roschen and Stringwald)-many with them posing with their trophies (leopard, hippopotamus, antelope, impala, water buffalo, bushbuck, n'golungo, etc.), the Safari trucks (stuck in the mud, fording a river, at the campsite, etc.), a Baobab tree, and African men, women, and children carrying supplies, butchering game, etc. These images came from a group of photographs that belonged to Dr. Ernest C. Roschen, an oil company geologist and long-time collaborator of Dr. Joseph Singewald, whose career and association with Roschen-including their hunting trips-is described with considerable detail in the May, 1964 issue of The Bulletin of American Association of Petroleum Geologists.

JÜNGER, Ernst. The Storm of Steel. From the Diary of a German Storm-Troop Officer on the Western Front ... With an Introduction by R. H. Mottram. London: Chatto & Windus, 1929.8vo. Original red cloth; spine lettered in gilt; pp. xiii, 319; binding a little marked, spine faded and with small repaired tear at foot; internally very clean and fresh.Rare first edition in English, first printing, of one of the most vividly told first-hand reports of the Western Front during WWI. However controversial (glorification of war as a transcending experience, Nazi avant-la-lettre, drug experiments, etc.), Ernst Jünger, who died at the age of 102 in 1998, was able to find a suitable prose form for the immense destructive powers unleashed by industrial warfare. This translation - by Basil Creighton - is based on Jünger's 1924 version of In Stahlgewittern, before the author revised (and weakened) the text many times, last in 1978.#2101446

Jacomb-Hood, M.S.
Calcutta: Caledonian Printing Company Limited, 1929. First edition, two volumes, folio (33 x 26 cm), pp.xviii, 180, (181)-399, [1], 15 mounted plates, one reproduction of an autograph letter from Ernest Cable to text, large folding map. Hand-painted initial letters throughout. A very good set in the original Indian bindings of half reversed calf, gilt, upper boards with Baron Cable of Ideford's gilt-tooled arms (crocodiles rampant). A few marks to cloth, one spine label on the first volume slightly chipped. A history of Bird & Co., founded by Captain Sam Bird in 1864 with a "handling contract at the Jumna bridge". Over the next eighty years the company became an enormous commercial concern, with its principal interests in labour, jute, and coal. This book was commissioned as a memorial to Ernest Cable (1859-1927), first Baron Cable of Idleford, who joined the company's board in 1881, after eleven years in Calcutta, and transformed the business into a successful conglomerate with diverse interests across India. With the acquisition of its rival Calcutta merchant house, F. W. Heilgers & Co., in 1917, it became the largest company in India, employing 100,000. Cable served as President of the Bengal Chamber of Commerce in 1903 and as a member of the Legislative Council from 1903 to 1905. The text blends the personal reminiscences of senior company personnel, including Cable, with a detailed survey of their operations. The large map at the rear of the second volume illustrates the extent of the company's past and present interests within India. We locate a copy at University … [Click Below for Full Description]

Edwin Grabhorn
San Francisco: Condition: Very good + - Signed. One of approx. 30 copies, folio size, [10] unnumbered leaves, signed by Edwin Grabhorn and Valenti Angelo. A keepsake offered to members of the Zamorano Club at the joint Roxburghe-Zamorano Club meeting, held in October, 1929, printed by The Grabhorn Press and "Assembled for Members of the Zamorano Club". As is written in the foreword by Ed Grabhorn, "For the past few years there has been accumulating extra pages from various books. It has occured to us that a few of these....might be of some interest to you". They close by stating "[t]his seclusion [of printing "in overalls"] has created such a timidity that while the honor conferred on Mr. Angelo & myself cannot be ignored, yet the fear of having to make an after dinner speech has frightened us into further seclusion"; beneath are the signatures of both Edwin Grabhorn and Valenti Angelo, with what appears to be the date of "Oct (?) 29" written in at the bottom of a lovely multi-line flourish beneath Valenti Angelo's name. The "seclusion" comment was a bit tongue-in-cheek, as their schedules simply did not permit the two men to travel to Los Angeles for the joint meeting. The specimens included are from 1926-1929, taken from nine books that both Valenti Angelo and Edwin Grabhorn worked on. Those works are: "The Letter of Amerigo Vespucci," 1926; "Oscar Wilde's Salome," 1927; "The Book of Ruth," 1927; "Two Unpublished Manuscripts of A.C. Swinburne," 1927; "The Voiage and Travaile of Sir John Maundevile, Kt.," 1928; "The Scarlet Letter," 1928; "The Plantin-Moretus Museum," 1929 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wolfe, Thomas
New York: Modern Library, [1929]. Later edition. 626 pp. 1 vols. Thick 8vo. Inscribed to his UNC classmate. Inscribed on the front free endpaper: "For Julia and Shorty Spruill -- not only in memory of those days before the book was written -- but in grateful remembrance of a memorable return -- my first to my native state since this book was written -- to which they have so generously and hospitably contributed Jan 24, 1937 -- Tom Wolfe." Corydon Spruill was a classmate of Wolfe's during his undergraduate days at the University of North Carolina who became dean of the general college in 1936. When Wolfe made his first return to Chapel Hill, the now famous novelist "spent the night at the [Spruill's] home.... Albert Coates and others have recounted how Wolfe appeared at the Coates' door that night in search of something stronger to drink than tea or water. [The Spruills'] copy of Look Homeward, Angel, the Modern Library edition, was inscribed by Thomas Wolfe and probably bought for this occasion" (Cherry, Wolfe's Notes on Macbeth, p 9). Wolf died of pneumonia the year after this inscription, at the age of 37. Publisher's blue cloth, ticket of Bull's Head Book Shop, Chapel Hill, N.C., inside front cover. Chip to head of spine, front hinge weak, some fading to spine.

Berg, Alban, Komponist (1885-1935)
Wien, 29. XII, 1929. 1? SS. Gr.-4to. Mit zweizeiliger eh. Nachschrift und U. von Helene Berg. Ausführlicher und freundschaftlicher Brief an den Komponisten Paul von Klenau: "[...] Von den mir bekannten Tagen Deines Wiener Sejours (ich traf Dich am 15. November im Scherchenkonzert und nahm Deine Abreise für den 15. Dezember an) von diesen 30 Tagen also war ich selbst fast 10 Tage abwesend (Essen), eine Woche krank, hatte (zum erstenmal in meinem Leben) eine öffentliche Klavierbegleitung - mit vorhergehender Gesangs-Korrepetition und Klavierüben - zu leisten, zwei Vorträge vorzubereiten, vier Tage der Wiener Staatsoper quasi zur Verfügung zu stehen (mit dem Oldenburger Korrepetitor), Vorbereitungen für die obige Reise und für Weihnachten zu treffen; und die Zwischenzeit mit Briefschreiben und Telefonieren und Stundengeben auszufüllen. Und da spreche ich nur von mir. Auch Dir ist es in diesen 30 Tagen nicht anders ergangen. Jedenfalls wäre es ein Wunder gewesen, wenn die paar Stunden der Muße, die uns beiden vielleicht gerade noch geblieben sind, so auf die Minute zusammen gefallen wären, daß wir sie zusammen hätten verbringen können [...] Anbei findest Du lieber Paul eine Liste, die meine Bruchstücke betrifft, Ich habe die Partitur eben durchgeblättert in der Absicht, Dir darüber vielleicht ein oder die andere Bemerkung (aus meinen Erfahrungen heraus) zu sagen. Und sehe nun, daß es ein ganzer Haufen geworden ist: Druckfehler, neue Retouchen und kleine Unklarheiten in dem, was ich gewollt habe.

JAKOBSON, ROMAN. - [PRESENTATION-COPY]
Prague, Jednota Ceskoslovenskych Matematiku a Fysiku, 1929. 8vo. Uncut and unopened in the original printed wrappers. A bit of minor chipping and bending to extremities. A very nice copy. 118, (2, -blank) pp. ¶ The rare first edition of one of the most important early works by the pioneer of the structural analysis of language and one of the most influential linguists of the 20th century, with presentation-inscription for one of the leading French linguists of the period: "A Mr J. Vendryes, homage respectueux del'auteur" on the title-page. The work constitutes the starting point of a new approach in linguistics and phonology.The work was published as No. 2 of the foundational "Travaux du Cercle Linguistique de Prague", the publication from the seminal Prague School of Linguistics, of which Jakobsen was a founder. The Prague School held its first international conference, of Slavic linguists, in 1929. Here Jakobson presented his research on the phonological evolution of Russian and other Slavic languages, which had led him to conclude that there was a correlation between the description of sound systems and the explanation of their evolution. "He identified the phoneme as the minimal unit of language capable of discriminating word meanings and viewed the phoneme as an indivisible atom. These advances constituted the starting point of a new approach in linguistics and phonology, according to which each language is distinguished from all others by its phonemic system, that is, by the inclusion or omission of particular phonemes available to human speech."
