        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.

        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"

        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.

        Un cadavre (André Breton)

      Paris, Imprimerie spéciale du cadavre s.d. [15 janvier 1930] - Journal de 4 pages, in-4 carré (36,8 x 32 cm), plié. Violent pamphlet dirigé contre André Breton tiré à 500 exemplaires . Exclus du groupe surréaliste, amitiés trahies, loyauté envers Simone, épouse de Breton dont celui-ci vient de se séparer, tout est raison d'alimenter la guerre d'ego. Ainsi sous l'impulsion de Bataille, véritable architecte de cette publication (après le retrait de Desnos), le libellé qui doit son nom au tract incendiaire de 1924 - dont la victime fut Anatole France tout juste décédé - s'articule autour d'un montage photo de Boiffard, représentant Breton les yeux fermés ceint d'une couronne d'épines sanguinolentes. Âgé alors de 33 ans, Breton-Christ est violemment pris à parti par ses douze apôtres pamphlétaires, les lecteurs scandalisés prendront le parti de la victime, certains lui écrivant des lettres de soutien. Bataille regrettera plus tard le rôle qui fut le sien : "En fait, les signataires du second cadavre ne furent jamais unis que par l'hostilité. Je suis aujourd'hui enclin à croire que les exigences de Breton [.] étaient au fond justifiées. Il y avait chez Breton un désir de consécration commune à une même vérité souveraine, une haine de toute concession dès qu'il s'agissait de cette vérité dont il voulait que ses amis soient l'expression à moins de ne plus être ses amis [.]. Je hais ce pamphlet comme je hais les parties polémiques du second manifeste." (Bataille, publication d'"un cadavre", dans le pont de l'épée, N°41, octobre 1969 ; reprise d'un article de 1954). On invita les membres du Grand jeu à participer au lynchage, ceux-ci refusèrent. Rare publication, le papier journal étant support fragile, et puis Bataille affirmera avoir détruit 200 exemplaires.

        Poems

      London: Faber & Faber 1930 - First edition, one of 1,000 copies printed. Publisher's pale blue paper wrappers, quadruple-ruled in red, lettered in black, text block edges untrimmed, some pages uncut. A very good copy with a touch of wear and toning to extremities, front hinge cracked but holding, otherwise very bright and clean. First printed privately in 1928, it was not until 1930 that Auden's first book of poetry was printed for trade, when T.S. Eliot, then director of Faber & Faber, accepted it for publication with the addition of several new poems. This edition includes numbered poems as well as Auden's play, Paid on Both Sides. Notably, Auden's work had a prominent impact on other British and Irish writers at the time, including Christopher Isherwood and Cecil Day-Lewis, to whom the book is dedicated. This group of writers became known as the Auden generation, and shared left-wing political views. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

He designed over 200 books including some collections of well-known fairy tales, and headed up the book-making courses for children at the Moscow Museum of Children's Books. Very scarce; as of January 2018, WorldCat does not locate a single holding of any of the three volumes.

        eigentl. Hans Bötticher, Dichter und Kabarettist (1883 - 1934): Eigenhändige Widmung mit U. (5 Zeilen) in seinem Buch: "Mein Leben bis zum Kriege".

      8. 354 (+1) S., 2 Bl. (Inhaltsverz. u. Werbung für weitere Bücher von J. R.) OLn. mit geprägtem umlaufenden Doppelrahmen u. Deckelillustr. (Karikatur) von Olaf Gulbransson. Farbkopfschnitt. Erstausgabe (WG 32) der Autobiographie von Joachim Ringelnatz "Mein Leben bis zum Kriege" auf dem Vorsatz nur ein halbes Jahr vor seinem Tod gewidmet: "S / l [Seinem lieben] Freund / Georg Stickl / herzlichst / Ringelnatz / Berlin, März 34" - // - Ringelnatz war 1930 endgültig von München nach Berlin gezogen, denn er erhoffte sich dort größere berufliche Möglichkeiten. Reminiszenz an die Münchner Zeit ist die Deckelillustration von Olaf Gulbransson, der ebenfalls viele Beziehungen zu Berliner Kulturszene hatte. Nach der Machtergreifung 1933 erteilen die Nationalsozialisten Ringelnatz Auftrittsverbot uns viele seiner Bücher wurden beschlagnahmt oder verbrannt. Weil die Einnahmen wegfielen, verarmten Ringelnatz und seine Frau. Seine Tuberkulose verschlimmerte sich und der im März, also nur wenige Monate vor seinem Tode (17. Nov. 1934) verfassten Widmung, sieht man an der Schrift schon den körperlichen Verfall an. - Das Buch hat nur am Deckel wenige winzige, ganz schwache Braunflecken (Abb. 2), ist sonst aber sehr gut.

        Correspondance entre Harry Baur et son avocat, Maître Lévy-Oulmann

      1930 - Ensemble d'une quarantaine de feuillets rédigés par Harry Baur, dans les années trente, sur papier en-tête d'hôtels, de brasseries, ou papier à en-tête aux initiales du comédien, qui habitait au 6 rue Frédéric Bastiat, formats divers. La plupart de cette correspondance comporte une signature autographe. Certaines lettres sont tapuscrites, beaucoup manuscrites. Il semble qu'elles soient toutes adressées à son avocat, Maître Levy-Oulmann, souvent dénommé « mon cher vieux ». La majorité traite de problèmes d'argent, de procès en cours, de doutes sur le chauffeur personnel dont le train de vie semblait à Baur au-dessus de ses moyens. Ce chauffeur l'assignera au tribunal après plusieurs années de service. Quelques lettres sont relatives au cinéma : Harry Baur se plaint que son nom soit plus petit que celui de Simone Simon, plainte à l'Excelsior pour la publication d'un placard publicitaire ne respectant pas les engagements contractuels du comédien, conflit avec des producteurs (Gallic Films, Gaumont). Une lettre révèle la sensibilité du comédien, dans laquelle il cherche un moyen d'aider un homme pauvre et invalide à ne pas se laisser voler par son patron. Ce riche ensemble, éparpillé sur la décennie 1930, dénote un esprit procédurier et soupçonneux, et il révèle la forte personnalité de Harry Baur, se posant comme un homme sûr de lui et de ses droits, ne laissant rien passer (« j'attaque qui me touche » écrit-il). L'écriture même témoigne de ce caractère trempé. (TV) [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

      Whittier, California: Shrewesbury Publishing Company, 1930. Near Fine. Oblong small quarto. String-tied gray cloth over paper boards with "my school life memory book" stamped in gilt on the front board. 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. Very good album with some bowing, with near fine photographs.A scrapbook kept by Lois June Jessup during her high school freshman and sophomore years at Whittier High School in Whittier, California in 1927 and her junior and senior years at Oceanside-Carlsbad Union High School in 1929. 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.
