        Bruyère - fashion design 1930s.

      "Diner au cabaret??Modetekening van de collectie van Marie-Louise Bruy?re. Medio jaren 1930. Gouache op grijs papier.Mme. Bruy?re (1884-?) was geboren op het Franse platteland, maar haar ambitieuze ouders verhuisden naar de groeiende voorsteden van Parijs, waar het hen voor de wind ging. Ze woonden in het chique Saint Gratien, waar ook Princesse Mathilde (het nichtje van Napoleon I) woonde. Ze volgde haar opleiding bij Cheruit en vervolgens bij Lanvin. In 1928 opende ze haar eigen ?Bruy?re Couture??, en met haar collectie van begin 1930 plaatste ze zich tussen de toonaangevende jonge ontwerpers van haar tijd zoals Schiaparelli, Alix, Rochas en Mainbocher. Haar faam groeide internationaal, waardoor ze in 1937 een grand salon aan de Place Vend?me kon openen. Haar kleding was chique, zeer draagbaar en bovenal modieus, opvallend door subtiele en ongewone design elementen. Met twee shows per jaar van elk 200 modellen, had ze een enorme productie en had in 1947 328 medewerkers. Haar bedrijf groeide tot midden jaren 1950. Als men dan overstapt naar prêt-a-porter gaat het na een paar jaar ten onder.Prijs: ?750,- (incl. lijst).

        IT WALKS BY NIGHT

      New York and London: Harper & Brothers, 1930., 1930. First edition. First edition. Publisher's "A-E" code on copyright page. Author's first novel. Former owner's neat inked name on the front pastedown sheet (completely covered by the dust jacket flap), with yellow Harper's seal at back of book removed (as is nearly always the case), leaving only a tiny remnant attached to page.211 and the rear fly leaf. Near Fine, bright copy in dust jacket with gentle sunning to spine, with light restoration to the spine ends and corners. Carr's first novel, a formidable locked-room mystery introducing his flamboyant Parisian character Henri Bencolin. Bencolin's case involves "an impossible murder in a gambling club - the victim, seen to enter an empty room with all entrances under observation, is subsequently found there, beheaded" (Twentieth-Century Crime and Mystery Writers (2nd ed.), p.146). Dust jacket promotional blurb says "When the police burst into the ante-room of a smart Paris gambling house, they find a mangled body thrown across the floor, while staring at them from the center of the empty room was the severed head of the Duc de Seligny. So begins a mystery story as weird and terrifying as any ever contrived by Poe. All the wiles of Bencolin, most satanic, most lovable of modern detectives, were needed for its solution." A crime fiction highspot housed in a clamshell case with the dust jacket design shown on the case.

        The World Crisis: 1911-1914

      London: Thornton Butterworth, Ltd., 1930. First edition, 8th printing. Hardcover. This is a jacketed copy of the British first edition, first printing, eighth and final printing of the first volume of the Churchill's monumental history of the First World War, in which he played such a critical, controversial, and varied role. This volume covers the first four years Churchill spent as First Lord of the Admiralty, as well as the beginning of the war. Many consider the British edition aesthetically superior to the U.S., with its larger volumes and shoulder notes summarizing the subject of each page. Unfortunately, the smooth navy cloth of the British first editions proved quite susceptible to wear and dulling, the contents prone to spotting and toning. Truly bright and clean bindings are seldom seen without the original dust jackets, and the dust jackets are exceptionally scarce. There were eight printings (between 1923 and 1930) of the first edition of this first 1911-1914 volume. This jacketed 1930 eighth and final printing of closely conforms to the appearance of the 1923 first printing. The dust jacket print is the same on the spine, front panel, and front flap, with substantive differences only to the rear panel, which adds advertisements for the subsequent volumes in the series, and the rear flap, which adds “Press Notices”. The binding is identical to that of the first printing with the sole exception of the addition of a single, five-pointed gilt star on the spine, denoting that this is the first volume. Given the similar shelf appearance of both jacket and binding, this copy offers the prospect of filling a jacketed first edition set at a far more modest cost than a first printing. Condition is near fine plus in a dust jacket that approaches near fine. The blue cloth binding is square, tight, immaculately clean, and strikingly bright, with sharp corners, perfectly rounded spine, vivid spine gilt, and no appreciable wear. The contents remain crisp and bright; the volume feels unread. A trivial hint of spotting appears confined to the otherwise clean page edges. A single previous owner name is neatly inked to the upper front free endpaper. The front free endpaper and facing front pastedown also show small rust stains consonant with two small paperclips that may have been laid in at one point. The dust jacket is complete apart from fractional chipping at the spine head. The panels and flap folds remain bright. The jacket spine shows moderate, uniform toning and a few faint stains, but nonetheless provides quite good shelf appearance. The jacket is protected beneath a removable, archival quality clear cover. Of The World Crisis, Frederick Woods wrote: "The volumes contain some of Churchill's finest writing, weaving the many threads together with majestic ease, describing the massive battles in terms which fitly combine relish of the literary challenge with an awareness of the sombre tragedy of the events." Churchill was in a special position to write this history, having served both in the Cabinet and on the Front. First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 until 1915, after the failure in the Dardanelles and the slaughter at Gallipoli, Churchill was scapegoated and forced to resign. He spent part of his political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Before war's end, Churchill was exonerated and rejoined the Government, but the stigma would linger. Churchill may have meant for his history of the First World War to clear his name, but his six volume masterwork far exceeds this purpose.

        Choix

      Paris : Editions Iribe, [1930]. Quarto, lettered boards with glassine cover (split, as usual), spiral bound, pp. 32; 7 gold and silver foil plates with acetate overlays (the metallic plates corroded, as always), else very good. An icon of art deco design by the legendary Paul Iribe. Limited to 800 copies, this one of the 400 copies hors commerce, with a presentation inscription from the printer. "This book, titled "Choix" (Choice), is the second of 800 copies that were published by Paul Iribe, a French illustrator, cartoonist, designer, decorator and art director, in 1930. Lamenting that French design had become "poor" and "americanized" in the years since the First World War, Iribe argues that the genius of French design lies in what he calls the "principe de l'arabesque" (principle of the arabesque). Facing the economic downturn of the 1930, Iribe is inviting his fellow French designers to choose to return to the "arabesque France" in design rather than to continue following the fashions imposed by the "cube Europe". To do so, after 31 pages with written text explaining his purpose, he presents seven plates of printed overlays over gold and silver board images depicting styles of the 1930's in home decor and fashion, as examples of industrial designs to illustrate the principle of the arabesque." - Metropolitan Museum of Art website.

      New York: Farrar and Rinehart. 1930. First. First edition. Portions of the jacket (text from the flaps) affixed to the front endpapers, binding modestly smudged and soiled, a near very good copy lacking the dustwrapper. The author's exceptionally uncommon fourth book, and considered the finest of her "Ohio" novels. Powell was a prolific and well-regarded author, but until a relatively recent and well-deserved revival, her work was mostly forgotten. For forty years she was a valued jewel of the New York literary world and if you read her books it's easy to see why. .

        ORIGINAL 1930 TYPED LETTER, SIGNED (re: The Maltese Falcon, The Glass Key & The Thin Man)

      New York, 1930. Hammett, Dashiell. ONE PAGE TYPED LETTER, SIGNED ["Sincerely, Dashiell Hammett"]. 135 East 38th Street, New York, April 21st, 1930. Highly desirable unpublished early letter from one of Hammett's most creatively fruitful years in which he makes mention of all three of his greatest novels. To "Dear Mr. Hammett" (Walter Hammett of Yale University in New Haven, who had initially written wondering -- incorrectly as it turned out -- if they shared any kin), it reads: "Thanks a lot for the latest of your always kind notes. The Falcon seems to be going over pretty well and I think Earl Boothe's going to produce it on the stage in the Fall if I can get time off from the current book to do the dramatization. The next book, 'The Glass Key' is scheduled for publication in September or October, and then 'The Thin Man' and 'The Darkened Face' in February and August, 1931. Beyond that deponent saith not. Best of luck to you with the poetry and otherwise." The letter, written only two months after the book publication of THE MALTESE FALCON has some irony to it as Dashiell Hammett's precision in rattling off titles and publication dates bore no reality to what came to pass. THE GLASS KEY wouldn't be published until 1931; THE THIN MAN didn't appear until 1934. As for "The Darkened Face" -- there is a fragment of a manuscript with that title at the Harry Ransom Center, University of Texas at Austin. It now appears to have been a planned novel which never came to full fruition. Nor did Hammett write a stage version of THE MALTESE FALCON for Earl Boothe; instead the novel was almost immediately adapted to film, released by Warner Brothers Studios as a pre-code 1931 crime drama full of sexual innuendo starring Ricardo Cortez and Bebe Daniels. The Selected Letters of Dashiell Hammett 1921-1960 (edited by Richard Layman) were indeed "selected from nearly one thousand letters" yet only a mere four letters date - as this letter does -- from 1930, the year Hammett published THE MALTESE FALCON. Apart from two neat folds, the letter is in Fine, crisp condition. Custom slipcase.. Signed by Author. Fine.

        [CALLIGRAPHIC MANUSCRIPT] From Gallipoli.

      [United Kingdom, c.1930]. Large octavo, original full dark blue morocco binding with triple gilt rule and ornament, spines with raised bands and lettered in gilt; inner boards with gilt rule; calligraphic manuscript in red, black and gold ink on vellum, [11] pages, each page with decorative borders in red, black and gold; the text comprises an extract from Masefield's book Gallipoli (1916), which describes the gathering of ships on the 23rd April prior to the landings on the 25th; the extract is preceded and followed by quotes from the Song of Roland(also used by Masefield in his book), which are rendered in red ink. Fine and unique. The poet John Masefield's Gallipoli was based on a report he had written for the British Foreign Office on the disastrous Dardanelles campaign. It was one of the first widely published accounts of the campaign. Unflinchingly realistic in its descriptions, it helped to enshrine in legend the heroic deeds and deplorable suffering of the soldiers of the ANZAC contingent. Masefield believed that, in spite of the campaign's ultimate strategic failure and the enormous human sacrifice it had demanded, Gallipoli was a glorious event, in the same way that other military defeats throughout history have been viewed by the losing side as events that shape national pride and character. 'All the thousands of men aboard [the ships] gathered on deck to see, till each rail was thronged. These men had come from all parts of the British world, from Africa, Australia, Canada, India, the Mother Country, New Zealand, and remote islands in the sea. They had said goodbye to home that they might offer their lives in the cause we stand for. In a few hours at most, as they well knew, perhaps a tenth of them would have looked their last on the sun, and be a part of foreign earth or dumb things that the tides push. Many of them would have disappeared for ever from the knowledge of man, blotted from the book of life none would know how - by a fall or chance shot in the darkness, in the blast of a shell, or alone, like a hurt beast, in some scrub or gully, far from comrades and the English speech and the English singing. And perhaps a third of them would be mangled, blinded or broken, lamed, made imbecile or disfigured, with the colour and the taste of life taken from them, so that they would never more move with comrades nor exult in the sun. And those not taken thus would be under the ground, sweating in the trench, carrying sandbags up the sap, dodging death and danger, without rest or food or drink, in the blazing sun, or the frost of the Gallipoli night, till death seemed relaxation and a wound a luxury ... they went like kings in a pageant to the imminent death.' (extract from pages 4-5 of the manuscript)
