Bookplate to the front pastedown of Raymond Greene, distinguished doctor and mountaineer and brother of Graham. Signature of 'W. Greene' to the front free endpaper, most likely the Greene brothers' father William. Loosely inserted a TLS, folded twice,from Churchill to Graham Greene on Chartwell notepaper, 8th August 1924 'My dear Graham Greene, I have kept your letter of the 29 July until now in the hopes of being able to conform to your wishes and to accept the very kind invitation with which, on behalf of your brother, you have honoured my wife and me. I am sorry to say, however, that my plans make it impossible for me to do so. I have a political engagement on the 24th or 25th at Edinburgh, and I have arranged to leave immediately thereafter with my wife for ten days abroad. The Irish development will, I fear, lead to so many difficulties that I shall have to be back in England early on October. In these circumstances I hope you will forgive me for not undertaking this task at any rate this year. I need not say how much we both appreciate your having wished us to pay this visit. Believe me Yours very sincerely Winston Churchill'. Also tipped in a newspaper obituary of Dr. Raymond Greene. Spine faded, the letter slightly soiled on the folds.

        Moby Dick, or The Whale

      Random House, New York 1930 - First trade edition, duodemico size, 823 pp. First trade edition of Moby Dick illustrated by Rockwell Kent; the Lakeside Press published a limited edition in three volumes with 280 illustrations; this trade edition is in a smaller format and uses 272 of the illustrations. Rockwell Kent was already well-known and his appeal has continued to grow; his work remains widely collected today. Interestingly, while Melville wrote Moby Dick in 1851, it was almost neglected until Kent elected to illustrate the story; his illustrated version had tremendous success and revived the novel for the 20th century.___DESCRIPTION: Black cloth boards with silver letting on front and spine, both the front and spine also display Kent's own design of a whale, with the head on the front and the tail on the spine, cream endpapers, vintage bookseller's ticket on the rear pastedown from Capwell, Sullivan & Furth, Oakland, Calif., with their price sticker of $3.50. Volume is replete with Kent's black-and-white pen/brush and ink drawings which made him justly so famous; duodecimo size (approximately 7" tall), 822 pages plus a one-page Epilogue.___CONDITION: Volume could almost be termed fine, the silver gilt on the front and spine is bright with minimal rubbing, the volume has a square, strong text block and solid hinges, gently bumped head and tail of spine, and also corners with a single miniscule rubbed corner (lower front), and entirely free of prior owner markings; minor toning to the endpapers and a very small (approximately one-half inch) crack to the bottom of the back hinge, else fine. A stunning example of a literary icon which endures in our cultural consciousness. ___CITATION: Rockwellkentiana, pg. 62.___POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply, please contact seller nquire for details.___Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell. Please contact us with any questions you may have, we are here to help. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Mei Lan-Fang Chinese Drama (Title page: The First American Tour of Mei Lan-Fang)

      New York.: China Institute in America.. No date. Ca. 1930.. Booklet, 12 ¼ x 9 ¼ inches, 38 unnumbered pages plus decorative grey paper wrappers. Free-edge corners lightly bumped; former owners name in pencil on first page. Contents in good clean condition overall. Program with a collection of essays introducing the work of actor Mei Lan-Fang to the American Public. The first portion of the program contains a series of essays relating to Mei Lan-Fang and the Chinese Drama. Essays include a discussion of Mei Lan-Fang's appeal to his Chinese audience; another essay on the Chinese theatre as a distinctive art form; other essays on the character types in Chinese theatre and the role of the female impersonator, Mei Lan-Fang's specialty. Further essays focus on the characteristics (or "peculiarities" the term used) of Chinese drama, with additional essays on costumes, stage properties and symbolism and musical instruments. The rest of the program provides synopses of eleven plays in his repertoire and a short introduction to a dozen "scenes" that enrich his repertoire—primarily in the form of dance. An uncommon program focusing on an actor whose work had a major impact on Western Drama. Perhaps Mei Lan-Fang's greatest impact on Western theatre is found in the work of German dramatist Bertolt Brecht, especially Brecht’s concept of "Verfremdungseffekt," understood as a "distancing" or "estrangement" effect. The program and essays provide valuable documentation of Mei Lan-Fang's presence and impact on American theatre. .

        RED MAGIC: A Collection of the World's Best Fairy Tales from All Countries Edited & Arranged by Romer Wilson

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1930. The rarely encountered first edition. Illustrated with eight fine colour plates and numerous line drawings by Kay Nielsen, most of which being full page. 8vo, publisher's original red cloth lettered in gilt on spine, with the top edge dyed red. This is what we have discovered to be one of two variant bindings in orange/red and with Cape's logo printed at the bottom of the spine panel and not embossed on the rear cover, there is no priority established. 368. A bright and clean copy, the cloth with only the lightest of mellowing to the spine panel, internally very fresh, uncommonly so. VERY SCARCE FIRST EDITION, THE FINAL TITLE TO BE ILLUSTRATED COMPREHENSIVELY BY KAY NIELSEN. The work is Illustrated in his distinctive art nouveau style and includes eight wonderful colourplates and over fifty monochrome creations. Nielsen was recognized as one of the three great illustrators of the fine gift book. Unlike Rackham and Dulac whose success coincided with the demand for the deluxe gift book, Nielsen missed his opportunity. Though often thought to be the very best of them all, he was unable to profit from his great talent, ultimately turned to theatrical design and the motion picture industry, most notably at the Disney Animation Studio. This is the last of only five titles illustrated by Nielsen. Scarce.

      New York. China Institute in America. No date. Ca. 1930. Booklet, 12 ¼ x 9 ¼ inches, 38 unnumbered pages plus decorative grey paper wrappers. Free-edge corners lightly bumped; former owners name in pencil on first page. Contents in good clean condition overall. Program with a collection of essays introducing the work of actor Mei Lan-Fang to the American Public. The first portion of the program contains a series of essays relating to Mei Lan-Fang and the Chinese Drama. Essays include a discussion of Mei Lan-Fang's appeal to his Chinese audience; another essay on the Chinese theatre as a distinctive art form; other essays on the character types in Chinese theatre and the role of the female impersonator, Mei Lan-Fang's specialty. Further essays focus on the characteristics (or "peculiarities" the term used) of Chinese drama, with additional essays on costumes, stage properties and symbolism and musical instruments. The rest of the program provides synopses of eleven plays in his repertoire and a short introduction to a dozen "scenes" that enrich his repertoire--primarily in the form of dance. An uncommon program focusing on an actor whose work had a major impact on Western Drama. Perhaps Mei Lan-Fang's greatest impact on Western theatre is found in the work of German dramatist Bertolt Brecht, especially Brecht's concept of "Verfremdungseffekt," understood as a "distancing" or "estrangement" effect. The program and essays provide valuable documentation of Mei Lan-Fang's presence and impact on American theatre.

        ON BEING ILL

      Hogarth Press, London 1930 - 208 x 135 mm. (8 1/4 x 5 3/8"). 4 p.l. (one blank), [9]-34 pp., [1] leaf. FIRST EDITION. No. 142 OF 250 COPIES, SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. Original vellum-backed cloth sides, gilt titling on spine, marbled endpapers, original dust jacket designed by Vanessa Bell. Vignette on final leaf. Kirkpatrick A14; Woolmer 245. A touch of rubbing to edges of jacket, otherwise AN EXTREMELY FINE COPY, clean and bright inside and out, with no signs of use. One of the most interesting of Woolf's non-fiction works, this short meditative essay argues that there is a value to illness. It makes us aware of our bodies (which we often ignore), refines the senses, sharpens observation, and forces us to contemplate mortality and immortality. Sprinkled with wit and poetic feeling, the work gives us intriguing insights into Woolf's attitude toward her own bouts with illness, physical and mental. The limitation page notes that Woolf set the type herself: it was her husband's hope, when the couple established the Hogarth Press in 1917, that printing would provide her with an avocation offering a respite from the intellectual strain of writing. This book is becoming increasingly difficult to find in the sort of condition seen here.

        Etudes de nu

      Paris: Librairie des Arts Décoratifs, [1930] - Small 4to (226 × 163mm), pp.[8], 24 photographic plates printed in gravure; tiny nick to edge of text leaves and three plates, minor crease to corners of two plates. Publisher’s white-cloth-backed orange paper-covered board portfolio, printed title-label to front, cloth fore-edge ties; minor rubbing to boards, bottom corner bumped, small mark to spine, hinges weakened. An excellent copy in a custom-made clamshell box. First edition. Etudes de nu comprises twenty-four photo-gravures depicting female nudes. The introduction begins with a quote attributed to Jean Cocteau, ‘Miroir réformant.’ This is a reference to a letter which was reprinted as the introduction to a portfolio of Krull’s images in the second issue of Le Courrier littéraire (1930), in which Cocteau wrote, ‘You are a reforming mirror. You and the camera obscura realize a new world, a world that fuses machinery with a soul.’ Gerry Badger suggests that ‘The great fascination of Etudes de nu is in observing Krull’s struggle with the conventions of the nude genre, her own sensibilities, and the restrictions regarding the photographic nude that pertained even in Paris.’ Parr and Badger, The Photobook: A History vol.I p.78.

        Principles of Clothing Selection [ Early 1930s College Course Project from Columbia University Teachers College Student ]

      - Over 80 loose sheets of manuscript entries illustrating the principles of women's clothing selection using magazine illustrations, cloth swatches, and hand-drawn color sketches. The project appears to be based on the textbooks Principles of Clothing Selection (1930) and Clothing for Women (1929). Home economics and fashion appeared in college curricula after World War I when more women moved into the workforce in professional roles and wardrobe needs changed. The sheets are contained in a worn envelope marked with the name of Hazel Stine, who received a B. S. In Education and Practical Arts from Columbia in 1933. Her observations on style show her preferences (or those of her professors) : "Trim and in quite good taste are the clothes worn by the conservative type." Ms. Stine's project also contains a candid self-assessment: "Weight--174 (much over-weight) ," a sketch of her body from head to toe, a listing of her "Bad Points", and a "Score Card for Personal Appearance." Her color drawings illustrating outfits she would choose for herself appear on two sheets. She received an A- for her effort. ; 14 1/2" x 9"
