        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.

        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"

        Al-Bustan wa Huwa Qamus Lughawi. TWO VOLUMES.

      American Press, Beirut 1930 - Volume I: 1383 pp., / Volume II: 1385-2783 pp., Arabic text within borders, double column per page, contemporary half-calf, covers and edges rubbed, slightly soiled; raised spine, gilt title on spine, light damp stain on few pages and edge of vol.1, otherwise set in good condition, printed at the American Press, Beirut 1927-1930. Abdallah al-Bustani (1854-1930) was a Lebanese linguist. He was educated in Beirut by two leading grammarians of the period Nassif Yazigi and Yusuf al-Asir. He was lecturing at al-Hikma School in Beirut from 1900. Al-Bustani translated into Arabic many European novels, wrote poems and edited classical Arabic poetry. His major work is the dictionary of al-Bustan in two volumes (1927). It is a comprehensive Arabic-Arabic dictionary and one of the three most comprehensive dictionaries that were compiled towards the end of the 19th century and early 20th century. Al-Bustani later published an abridged edition of al-Bustan entitled Fakihat al-Bustan. His reason for making this lexicon was that there was a very strong need for making a lexicon for students. He stated in the introduction: "As the American press saw a need for a language lexicon containing words needed by school students, of different grades and levels, of cheap price, within the reach of everybody, I drew the attention of Shaikh Abdullah al-Bustani, whom I delegated to compose the lengthy lexicon titled Al-Bustan (Orchard) to summarize it to the extent that will meet students’ needs. He honoured my request of making this book, and gave it the title Fakihat al-Bustan". Size: 4to [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Draft of XXX Cantos

      Paris: Hours Press,, 1930. Octavo. Original tan cloth, titles to spine and upper board in red. Illustrated bookplate of Dudley Eaton Fitts to front pastedown. Spine rolled and dulled, corners nicked, tanning to pp.98-9, light spotting to endpapers, otherwise sound and internally clean, a very good copy. First edition, first impression, an important review copy with the ownership inscription of American poet, critic, and translator Dudley Fitts (1903-68) on the front free endpaper, "Dudley Fitts: New York, 1930, for review. Hound + Horn", as well as his illustrated bookplate and several annotations to the text. Dudley Fitts was well a well-respected member of the modernist literati, acquainted with the likes of Pound, Joyce, and Eliot. The copy was clearly sent by the publisher (Nancy Cunard) for review, perhaps at the behest of Pound himself, and makes for an excellent association. Hound & Horn magazine published the excerpted Cantos XXVII-XXX in April-June 1930, and Fitts followed up (January-March 1931) with a significant review entitled "Music fit for the Odes", which Betsy Erkkila has termed "perhaps the first academic analysis of the Cantos". In it he defended Pound's complex work: "the criticism that XXX Cantos is incomprehensible, is a false criticism... The Cantos will baffle persons who are willing to be baffled", and closed by heaping praise on "the greatest conception of our day... Technically it is nearly faultless; as a craftsman Pound is so far in advance of the rest of us that his book should be universally read, if only as a manual of poetic technic. But it is much more than splendid writing. It is a gallant, proud attempt to assert the positive value of experience. It is very nearly the great music, 'fit for the Odes'". Hound & Horn magazine was founded by two Harvard undergraduates in 1927, taking its name from a line of Ezra Pound's poem "The White Stag", and soon became an international literary magazine sold and read both sides of the Atlantic. Pound attempted to arrange an "alliance" with the magazine and in 1929 was appointed a contributing editor, sending them his own work to publish as well as that of his recent Rapallo discoveries such as Bunting, Mcalmon, Rodker, and Zukofsky. Pound soon feel out with the editors, however, and began in his correspondence to refer to it as the "Bitch & Bugle". It folded in 1934. This is one of 200 copies on Canson-Montgolfier soleil velin paper, from a total edition of 212.

Contains 82 sepia-toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1" x 1.5" and 3" x 5" with captions as well as various ephemera.

The album has sections from each year of high school with photos and ephemera detailing the grade. It begins with a list of Jessup's classmates followed by several small photo strip portraits of her girlfriends. She continues by including programs for events, ticket stubs, and membership cards for her time at Whittier. Also included are assignments such as spelling tests and essays tipped into the pages with grades, all of which show Jessup as a good student. One page shows commercial photos from Gay's Lion Farm where Jessup was taken by her uncle and grandmother as a reward for getting through admission day. She writes that it was "very interesting and we enjoyed it very much." One sections shows the school's dress up days with girls dressed up as musicians, one of which is complete with black face. In 1929 Jessup transferred to Oceanside-Carlsbad Union High School for her junior and senior year. These pages continue with ephemera from her time at the school including a copy of the O-C High Tide newsletters, various programs, and an athletic letter for participating in basketball, volleyball, and baseball and earning 30 points. She includes pages dedicated to her athletic pursuits including a section with ephemera from her basketball banquet. One section with a photograph of a sailor and a ship is from a class cruise where Jessup excitedly writes that they had the whole ship to themselves. She continues, "the shipmates and waiters were sure nice to us and we had a wonderful time." Interspersed throughout the album are photos of her classmates, some candids include building a human pyramid and general high school goofing off. There are also small portraits of the seniors in her class pasted next to a card with their names. An interesting and complete look at a California high school girl's education in the late 1920s.
