Mann, Thomas.
Erstausgabe. "Buddenbrooks" ist das früheste unter den großen Werken Thomas Manns und gilt heute als der erste Gesellschaftsroman in deutscher Sprache von Weltgeltung. 1929 erhielt Thomas Mann dafür den Nobelpreis. Als Vorlage diente die eigene Familiengeschichte. Schauplatz des Geschehens ist seine Heimatstadt Lübeck, ohne das der Name der Stadt ausdrücklich erwähnt wird. Der Verkauf des Buches war anfangs schleppend. Der für die damalige Zeit sehr hohe Preis von 14 Mark behinderte den Absatz. Heute ist es das meistverbreitete Werk des Autors. Sehr schönes Exemplar in originaler Bindung. - Potempa D1. - Wilpert/Gühring 2/3. - Bürgin 1.2. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

LA FARGE, OLIVER & ERNEST FRANKLIN
Cambridge Houghton Mifflin 1929. First Edition, First Printing. This copy has been extensively extra-illustrated in the 1990s by Navajo artist Ernest Franklin and then bound in an amazing designer binding by the Dragonfly Bindery-Studio. The late Ernest Franklin was famous for his illustrations of the novels of Tony Hillerman, and in this special copy of this classic Pulitzer Prize winning novel of Navajo life, Franklin has drawn and added 10 original full page signed watercolor illustrations of the text. Additionally there is a signed ink drawing portrait of the bookÕs protagonist Laughing Boy, plus 21 small pen & ink Franklin drawings each at the beginning of the individual chapters. The book has been bound in a special artists binding which recreates a wraparound Navajo blanket using pieces of colored leather in black, red, and white. The book is also enclosed in a matching designer leather and cloth clamshell box. The whole production is very striking and attractive. This volume is a remarkable cumulative achievement and perhaps is Ernest FranklinÕs finest illustrated book. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

CROWLEY, Aleister.
The Mandrake Press, London, 1929. First Edition. Crown octavo, publisher's original green cloth, spine titled and ruled in gilt. 335 pp. Printed by the Crypt House Press. Very mild browning to endpapers, as is common with this title. Lower corners slightly bumped, otherwise and overall a fine, fresh copy, in fine example of the original colour pictorial dust wrapper designed by Beresford Egan, one of the most beautiful art-deco jackets of the period, The jacket has slight browning to the white paper areas, principally on the rear panel, but has no chips or tears, and is rarely encountered in such superlative condition. A stunning copy. Crowley's major occult novel about a war between a group of white magicians and a group of black magicians over the soul of an unborn child, the "Moonchild". Numerous acquaintances of Crowley appear as thinly disguised fictional characters. Crowley portrays MacGregor Mathers as the primary villain, including him as a character named SRMD, using the abbreviation of Mathers' magical name. Arthur Edward Waite appears as a villain named Arthwaite, and the unseen head of the Inner Circle of which SRMD was a member, "A.B." is theosophist Annie Besant. Among Crowley's friends and allies Allen Bennett appears as Mahatera Phang, the dancer Isadora Duncan appears as Lavinia King, and her companion Mary D'Este (who helped Crowley write his magnum opus "Magick: Book 4" under her magical name 'Soror Virakam') appears as Lisa la Giuffria. Cyril Grey is Crowley himself. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]

Images by:] Farkas, Étienne [Farkas, István]; [Poems by:] Salmon, André
Éditions des Chroniques du jour, Paris, 1929. First edition. Association copy, inscribed to Alfred Flechtheim. Limited, numbered (1/185/200). In publisher's folder, printed in red and black. Text in French. (4) p., and 20 plates (10 coloured pochoir plates and 10 plates of poems). Page size: ca. 305 × 420 mm. Composition size varies, approx. 220 × 290 mm. Association copy of István Farkas' scarce modernist portfolio which he created together with the French art critic and poet, André Salmon. Inscribed to the German art dealer, Alfred Flechtheim. The portfolio, which was titled after Baudelaire's poem of the same title, contains the reproductions of ten tempera paintings by the Hungarian painter, István Farkas, (1887-1944) along with the reproductions of the manuscripts of André Salmon's poems, which he wrote for Farkas's pictures. Farkas created the body of work for this portfolio over the course of four years that he spent in Paris between 1925-1929. His exotic still lifes were created in a unique style which Farkas developed while turning from synthetic cubism towards a surrealist world. The finest examples of his endeavour are his "sous-marin" compositions, some of which are also featured in Correspondances, in which he evoked a mysterious, underwater world. André Salmon, who was also the monographist of Farkas, stressed the painter's "ability to express dreams with the most complete symbols of reality" and wrote that "Farkas is unlike anyone else. He comes from one school only: his own." The portfolio was made in the finest quality in the workshop of Jean Saudé, one of … [Click Below for Full Description]

FLEMING, ALEXANDER. - [THE DISCOVERY OF PENICILLIN]
London, 1929. 4to. Entire vol. X, 1929, bound in black full cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Hinges a bit weak and end-papers renewed. A few leaves loosening a bit. All in all a good, sound copy. Book plate of Frank J. Farrell to inside of front board. Pp. 226-228, (2 pp. - photographic illustrations), pp. 229-236. [Entire volume: VII, (1), 407 pp.]. ¶ Seminal first printing of the groundbreaking paper that announces for the first time one of the most revolutionizing discoveries of modern times, namely penicillin. Fleming's accidental discovery and isolation of penicillin in September 1928 (published here for the first time) marks the introduction of the age of useful antibiotics. This magnificent discovery would not only completely change the world of modern medicine, it would change the course of history, continually saving millions of lives around the world. <br><br>"When I woke up just after dawn on September 28, 1928, I certainly didn't plan to revolutionise all medicine by discovering the world's first antibiotic, or bacteria killer. But I suppose that was exactly what I did." (Alexander Fleming). <br><br>Fleming reported his great discovery in the present paper published in "British Journal of Experimental Pathology". An original offprint of the paper was also made, but that is of the utmost scarcity and possibly only one copy has survived (although some estimate three copies to be in existence). For a long time, a reprint from 1944 was thought to be the original offprint, but that later turned out not to be the case. The 1944 reprint was commissioned by Fleming h … [Click Below for Full Description]

YEATS. W. B.
The Cuala Press. Dublin, Ireland. 1929. FIRST EDITION. 8vo. (8.6 x 6 inches). LIMITED EDITION. One of 425 copies printed and published by Elizabeth Corbet Yeats on paper made in Ireland. Original cloth-backed blue paper covered boards, printed paper label to spine, titles stamped to front cover in black. Plain blue endpapers. Covers lightly marked and the front free endpaper slightly creased otherwise this is a very good copy. ------ Wade 163. ---- Yeats's Packet for Ezra Pound presents one side of an intriguingly unlikely literary and personal friendship; Yeats, who lived with Pound more than once (first in Ashdown Forest, where Pound's ostensibly secretarial status produced the drastic renovation of Yeats's poetic style in his 1914 collection "Responsibilities", and later in Rapallo during the late 1920s, the period of association with which Yeats's "Packet" is concerned), describes Pound as a man "whose art is the opposite of mine, whose criticism commends what I most condemn, a man with whom I should quarrel more than with anyone else if we were not united by affection". This copy has a newspaper-clipped portrait of Yeats (with an extremely stern expression) laid in. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Descriptive text by Edward Angus Burt. Color plates by the Boston Heliotype Printing Company. Louis C.C. Krieger illustrated most of the specimens. Published ten years after the death of botanist William Farlow Gilson, the creation of this work "was a long and complex journey. It involved no less than four botanists, two professional artists, two commercial printers, one warehouse, and numerous photographers and editors. The work spanned more than forty years and cost an estimated $50,000 at a time when a lavish new house cost less than $9,000" (See Harvard University Herbaria: A Wreath to the Memory of Dr. Farlow. The creation of Icones Farlowianae 1889 - 1930). William Farlow Gilson (1844-1919), was an American cryptogamic botanist, president of the National Academy of Sciences, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the Botanical Society of America. "Farlow's attention to practical botany had a most significant influence on American science. He conducted research on destructive, plant-pathogenic fungi, furnishing some of the earliest, professional papers on the subject of plant diseases. His focus on plant diseases helped lay the foundations for a science of phytopathology. His investigations of potato rot, diseases of oranges and olives, mildews … [Click Below for Full Description]

Original burgundy half cloth over marbled boards. Marbled endpapers.= A fine and luxurious documentation of the economically important large scale building operation which made the river Rhine much more navigable between Basel in Switzerland, and Strasbourg in France. A complex of eight locks and a hydroelectric plant was built in a record time during the Great Depression. By coincidence, a major renovation was begun 80 years later. Perhaps this album was intended as a souvenir for those who were in charge of completing this massive project.

The Master Therion (Aleister Crowley)
Paris: Privately Published [Printed at the Lecram Press], 1929. First Edition, First Printing. Original Wrappers. Very Good. 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 some light soiling, and 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). Remaining volumes have some light edge wear and small chips to spine ends, with section 4 having 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 exceptional work on Ceremonial Magick (his masterpiece, some would say) in four parts. Shortly after publication it was issued in two subscriber's editions in which the same sheets for the first issue were trimmed down and bound into one hardcover volume.

Hemingway, Ernest
Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1929. First edition. Octavo, original black cloth. First issue and in the first state dust jacket with the reading "Katharine Barclay" in the blurb on the front flap. Fine in a very good dust jacket with some wear and tear to the extremities and some fading to the extremities. Written when Ernest Hemingway was thirty years old and lauded as the best American novel to emerge from World War I, A Farewell to Arms is the unforgettable story of an American ambulance driver on the Italian front and his passion for a beautiful English nurse. Set against the looming horrors of the battlefield—weary, demoralized men marching in the rain during the German attack on Caporetto; the profound struggle between loyalty and desertion—this gripping, semiautobiographical work captures the harsh realities of war and the pain of lovers caught in its inexorable sweep. Ernest Hemingway famously said that he rewrote the ending to A Farewell to Arms thirty-nine times to get the words right. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]

FLEMING, ALEXANDER - [THE DISCOVERY OF PENICILLIN]
London, 1929. 4to. Entire vol. X, 1929, bound in black full cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Hinges a bit weak and end-papers renewed. A few leaves loosening a bit. All in all a good, sound copy. Book plate of Frank J. Farrell to inside of front board. Pp. 226-228, (2 pp. - photographic illustrations), pp. 229-236. [Entire volume: VII, (1), 407 pp.]. ¶ Seminal first printing of the groundbreaking paper that announces for the first time one of the most revolutionizing discoveries of modern times, namely penicillin. Fleming's accidental discovery and isolation of penicillin in September 1928 (published here for the first time) marks the introduction of the age of useful antibiotics. This magnificent discovery would not only completely change the world of modern medicine, it would change the course of history, continually saving millions of lives around the world. <br><br>"When I woke up just after dawn on September 28, 1928, I certainly didn't plan to revolutionise all medicine by discovering the world's first antibiotic, or bacteria killer. But I suppose that was exactly what I did." (Alexander Fleming). <br><br>Fleming reported his great discovery in the present paper published in "British Journal of Experimental Pathology". An original offprint of the paper was also made, but that is of the utmost scarcity and possibly only one copy has survived (although some estimate three copies to be in existence). For a long time, a reprint from 1944 was thought to be the original offprint, but that later turned out not to be the case. The 1944 reprint was commissioned by Fleming h … [Click Below for Full Description]

Malevich, Kazimir, Russian painter and art theoretician (1879-1935).
1929. 8vo. 2 pp. on double leaf, in pencil. In Russian, to his third wife, Natalya, about some of his paintings that were sold, his return to Moscow, where everyone is happy to see him, and a presentation he attended there: "[...] Yesterday I went to the Academy to hear a presentation by Shutko on Dziga Vertov. It was quite remarkable, and I also saw three stagings [apparently films] by Vertov. Eisenstein sulked like a little girl. There was another presentation held by a German from Dessau, but I left before that. The people from ASNOVA [i. e. the Association of New Architects] want me to go to Moscow. Klyun will leave on Wednesday [...]" (transl.). - Kirill Ivanovich Shutko (1884-1941) was editor-in-chief of the magazine "Soviet Cinema". - Somewhat wrinkled.

BUNUEL (Luis) & DALI (Salvador)
Paris, Van Bever, [novembre] 1929. 1 plaquette (135 x 220 mm) de 36 et 12 pp. Brochée sous couverture or imprimée en noir (Boîte signée de Julie Nadot). Edition originale. Rare plaquette consacrée à l'analyse et l'explication du film « L'Age d'or » de Luis Bunuel et dont les dialogues avaient été composés par le cinéaste et Salvador Dali.Elle contient le scénario du film, un texte collectif d'Aragon, Breton, Char, Dali, Éluard, Sadoul, Tzara..., la liste des « oeuvres musicales jouées au cours de l'Âge d'Or » (Beethoven, Mozart, Richard Wagner, Franz Schubert), le catalogue des oeuvres exposées au studio 28 illustré de 30 photogrammes du film et de 10 reproductions : dessins de Arp, Dali (2), Ernst (2), Miró, Man Ray (2), Tanguy (2). La fin du volume contient enfin, broché tête-bêche, un prospectus publicitaire pour Studio 28. Le scénario est le prétexte à des scènes blasphématoires dénonçant l'ordre bourgeois qui a provoqué la guerre. Les 61 mn livrent ainsi un aveugle maltraité, un chien écrasé, une vieille dame giflée au lieu d'être servie, un enfant tué par son père à coup de fusil dans l'indifférence générale, un évêque défenestré, un encensoir déposé sur le trottoir et frôlé par des chevilles féminines qui « font le trottoir », un violon dont on joue à coup de pieds, le Christ sortant vêtu d'une robe immaculée d'une orgie, tout ce qui résume, selon le cardinal Jean Verdier, Archevêque de Paris, « film injurieux pour la patrie, la famille et la religion. »Commandé par de Charles de Noailles, dont la femme Marie-Laure de Noailles est alors une des plus importantes fortu … [Click Below for Full Description]

Tretyakov, S.
GIZ, Moscow, 1929. 192 pp. 17,5 ? 13 cm. In original illustrated Constructivist wrappers by Alexander Rodchenko. Very good. Slightly restored wrappers on the extremities. One of 2000 copies. Rodchenko's work in book design had begun with handmade carbon-copied books in the late teens that continued an earlier Futurist aesthetic and were made in very small editions. By contrast, his later constructivist book covers were issued by the state publishing house in much larger numbers. One of the latter is the wraparound cover for Orator: Verse, which exemplifies the architectural, rationalized, compositional structure of the post-Revolution design aesthetic («Artists and Prints: Masterworks from The Museum of Modern Art». New York: The Museum of Modern Art, 2004). Tretyakov was an important Leftist poet and the author of the plays 'Rychi Kitai!' [i.e. Roar, China!] and 'Khochu rebenka' [i.e. I Want a Child]. This cover is one of Rodchenko's most famous constructivist designs. MoMA. #826, Turchinsky. P. 536, Lesman. #2271.

Edition de luxe illustrée de 48 planches h.t. dont 12 finement coloriées au pochoir (ainsi que le frontispice), d'après les uvres majeures des peintres cubistes. Tirage limité et numéroté. Ouvrage de référence dû à l'historien de l'art et collaborateur de diverses revues, G.Janneau (1887-1968) qui fut inspecteur  des Monuments historiques, au Conservatoire national des arts et métiers. Avec cet ouvrage, Guillaume Janneau est un des premiers auteurs, non impliqués dans l'art cubiste, à le reconnaître et à l'analyser avec un regard critique. À ce titre, il fut, au fil du temps, pillé par divers auteurs. Il fut aussi, en son temps, vivement critiqué, suscitant, entre autres, une polémique sur des points philosophiques et techniques avec Albert Gleizes, théoricien du cubisme, dès 1911-1912, avec Metzinger. Mais Janneau, à l'instar de Kahnweiller, voit en Braque et Picasso les véritables pionniers du cubisme, rejoints par Gris, Léger, Laurens et Lipchitz. Bel exemplaire très bien relié. ************************************* With this book, Guillaume Janneau is one of the first authors, not involved in cubist art, to recognize it and to analyze it with a critical look.

Gropius, Walter.
64 pages withmore than 100 illustrations of plans and elevations oft he residences presented. Ownership stamp on title page: Franz Krause, Wuppertal Elberfeld, Hindenburgstr. 63. The architect Franz Krause (1897-1979) was at the very heart of the avant-garde - not only in 1927 as the construction manager of the Weißenhof Werkbund experimental housing estate in Stuttgart and during the Third Reich as a member of the Wuppertal work group along with Oskar Schlemmer and Willi Baumeister, but also as the architect of the Villa Waldfrieden. (Gerda Breuer and Pia Mingels, Franz Krause 1897-1979. Architekt, Künstler, Poet. Köln 2014). Schmalenbach relates that "In the fall of 1929 the Dammerstock housing project in Karlsruhe was begun under the supervision of Walter Gropius and with the participation of other prominent architects, German and foreign. All graphic work connected with the project, from letterheads to the catalogue of the exhibition, was 61 entrusted to Schwitters. It was as a direct result of this commission that Schwitters was appointed publicity consultant to the municipality of Karlsruhe. At this time he commuted regularly between Hanover and Karlsruhe." The double-columned catalogue, set (at Gropius's request) entirely in lower case letters, is one of Schwitters most substantial productions as a graphic designer. Featuring his logo for the exhibition, with its intriguing irregular form?undoubtedly based on the shape of the property?on the cover, it also includes a display ad for Schwitters' "merz-werbe," proudly emphasizing his exclusive contract for the exhibit … [Click Below for Full Description]

Forster, E. M.
Dorking, 1929. Signed by Author. Typed letter signed. 7in. by 9in. Typed in black ink to recto of a single sheet of cream Station Gomshall letterhead, signed in black ink and with one small addition to the text in Forster's hand. A near fine letter with one horizontal and one vertical folding crease, pencilled "X" to the upper margin, else very clean with bright ink. This letter is addressed to Denis Saurat, a writer and professor in the Department of French at King's College London, in reference to an upcoming lecture to be given by the French writer and translator Charles Mauron. In a previous letter, Forster had requested that Saurat invite Mauron to give a lecture during an upcoming trip to England in which he was already scheduled to lecture at Oxford and Cambridge. In this letter, Forster expresses his reluctance to give an introductory speech for Mauron's lecture, as he does not consider himself an expert on the subject of Mauron's work. Forster suggests that Roger Fry or Logan Pearsall Smith would be more appropriate choices for an introductory speech. Charles Mauron and E.M. Forster had a long-standing friendship that began with an introduction by their mutual friend, painter Roger Fry. Mauron's first translation project was in 1925, when, after losing most of his eyesight in a chemical accident, he began translating Forster's A Passage to India (1924) with Fry's guidance. Forster and Mauron first met in person in 1927 and remained close friends even after Roger Fry's death, continuing their correspondence until Mauron's death in 1966. Through his connection to Fry … [Click Below for Full Description]
