        History of the Peloponnesian War

      Chelsea : Ashendene Press, 1930. full cream vellum, spine with seven raised bands, lettered in gilt. Vellum a little toned, very slight rubbing at corners and joints, interior pristine. Folio. With Philip C. Duschnes bookseller label on rear pastedown The History of the Peloponnesian War (Greek: π ) is a historical account of the Peloponnesian War (431-404 BC), which was fought between the Peloponnesian League (led by Sparta) and the Delian League (led by Athens). It was written by Thucydides, an Athenian historian who also happened to serve as an Athenian general during the war. His account of the conflict is widely considered to be a classic and regarded as one of the earliest scholarly works of history. The History is divided into eight books. Analyses of the History generally occur in one of two camps. On the one hand, some scholars view the work as an objective and scientific piece of history. The judgment of J. B. Bury reflects his traditional interpretation of the work: "[The History is] severe in its detachment, written from a purely intellectual point of view, unencumbered with platitudes and moral judgments, cold and critical." ] On the other hand, in keeping with more recent interpretations that are associated with reader-response criticism, the History can be read as a piece of literature rather than an objective record of the historical events. This view is embodied in the words of W. R. Connor, who describes Thucydides as "an artist who responds to, selects and skillfully arranges his material, and develops its symbolic and emotional potential." Benjamin Jowett (1817-1893) was born in Peckham, Kent, and grew up in Camberwell, the third of nine children. His father was a furrier originally from a Yorkshire family that, for three generations, had been supporters of the Evangelical movement in the Church of England; and an author of a metrical translation of the Old Testament Psalms. His mother was a Langhorne, related to John Langhorne, the poet and translator of Plutarch. At twelve, Jowett was placed on the foundation of St Paul's School (then in St Paul's Churchyard) where he soon gained a reputation as a precocious classical scholar. Aged eighteen he was awarded an open scholarship to Balliol College, Oxford, where he remained for the rest of his life. He went up in 1836, and was quickly recognized as one of the leading Oxford Dons of his generation, made a Fellow while still an undergraduate in 1838; he graduated with first-class honours in 1839. He was renowned as an influential tutor and administrative reformer in the University of Oxford, and as a translator of Plato and Thucydides -wikipedia .

        Poems (Two) 1925. Edition limited to 150 copies, number 59, signed by author. Cover Design by Elliott Seabrooke

      London: The Aquila Press Limited. Good+. 1930. First Edition. Hardback. Tall 8vo., paper-covered boards, paper label to spine, unpaginated, complete. Limited to one hundred & fifty copies set and printed by hand of which this is No. 59. Signed Nancy Cunard. Dedicated to artist Elliott Seabrooke (who designed the covers). Boards a little grubby from age, light stain to top-edge, spine head knocked at back else a good copy. Clean and tight. This book is from the library of 'Marevna' and Marika Rivera (daughter of Marevna and Diego Rivera) but with no inscription to the effect.; Not only one of the 20th century's most celebrated muses, English heiress Nancy Cunard, refused to be defined by her glamour or, for that matter, by her riches. This unconventional child of privilege worked as a poet, a publisher, a journalist and, above all, a tireless supporter of the disenfranchised. Samuel Beckett praised "her spunk and verve.", T. S. Eliot put her in an early version of "The Waste Land", Pablo Neruda celebrated her "lovely sky-blue eyes". She played tennis with Ernest Hemingway, received house calls from James Joyce and modelled for Constantin Brancusi. Cunard wrote three books of poetry in the 1920s and in 1928 founded the Hours Press. A self-described anarchist, she chafed at her own image as a mere siren, and "yearned for a more meaningful identity". At the Hours Press they published Aragon, Ezra Pound and (the then little known) Samuel Beckett. ; Signed by Author .

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1921 - 1921 to 1934 Set of Wisdens Rebound with Covers

      Hi, This lot is a set of 14 rebound Wisdens all of them are rebound with covers. This Wisden set is in Good to Very Good condition. The boards are a bit of a mix but I have tried to make them as similar as possible so all are a reddish brown, all the books are in decent shape and a good but not mint set. Some notes are that the 1930 has a mark to the front cover, 1927 has a LCCC stamp to the bottom of the front cover, 1926 is a bit dark, 1923 a bit tatty and the 1925 has a cup mark to the cover. The 1932 may have a facsimile front cover , it feels facsimile but odd to see that in a rebind. They are all excellent internally all with photoplates, a great value for money set. 7/10s on average. Subject to availability I can swap any book inside this run or extend or slightly reduce the run for a different cost, please enquire for details.

Octavo, [1-8] 9-114 [115-116] original blue-gray speckled boards, spine stamped in gold, rear cover stamped in blind with the publisher's colophon. A novel of lycanthropy unaccountably dropped from the 1978 Bleiler Checklist. Although herself a Finn, Kallas wrote mainly about her husband's country, Estonia.

Professional tissue repair to top edges of this and the following two leaves. Contents otherwise clean and fresh. Laid in are duplicates of two of the illustrations: one in a mount of thin card, which bears the artist's signature in pencil; the other tipped onto tinted paper, with an inked title and a nick to the edge. All being hand-coloured, they are not identical to those in the book. With the original pastedowns of deep golden silk. The book came to me with no covering to the upper board, but the faded patterned gold silk covering partially attached to the lower board. The case has been very nicely re-covered with a delicately textured off-white paper, and the (slightly creased) patterned silk re-attached to cover the upper board.

        The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism. Translated by Talcott Parsons. With a foreword by R. H. Tawney.

      London: George Allen & Unwin, 1930 - Octavo. Original black cloth, spine lettered in gilt, with the dust jacket. Very slight rubbing to spine ends and corners, dust jacket spine darkened, with some chipping to spine ends; a clean, bright copy in a very good jacket, rarely seen. Ownership inscription "Stewart" to front free endpaper in ballpoint. First edition of the first English translation of Weber's great work, which originally appeared in German across two issues of the Archiv für Sozialwissenschaften und Sozialpolitik (November 1904 and June 1905). He managed to substantially revise the text for its first publication in book form shortly before his death in 1920; it appeared under the title Die protestantische Ethik und der Geist des Kapitalismus and was intended as the first volume in a series collecting Weber's writings on the sociology of religion, though his death meant the project was never completed. "The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism is Max Weber's most famous as well as most controversial book. In it he traced the influence of religious ideas upon the conduct of men and challenged the Marxist thesis that man's consciousness is determined by his social class Instead of completing his investigation of Protestantism, Weber began a comparative analysis of urban communities and of political organization as well as a study of the relation between religion and society. These wide ranging studies had the common purpose of defining and explaining the distinguishing characteristic of Western civilization. The Protestant Ethic was destined to serve as an introduction to this major theme of Weber's lifework, a specification of the interrelation of religious ideas and economic behaviour as the focus for further research. Weber's particular thesis – that Puritan ideas had influenced the development of capitalism – became the subject of a voluminous literature" (Bendix, Max Weber, an intellectual portrait, p. 71f).

        EL INGENIOSO HIDALGO DON QUIJOTE DE LA MANCHA

      MONTANER SIMON AÑO 1930 - Don Quijote de la Mancha. 1930. Edición.Montaner Simón. Cervantes ilustraciones Balaca y Pellicer Don Quijote de la Mancha. Edición 1930.Montaner Simón. Cervantes ilustraciones Balaca y Pellicer Hubo una época en que Josep Pla afirmaba que cualquier buen catalán burgués debía tener en su haber una colección de la Montaner i Simon. Era la editorial de más prestigio a finales del siglo XIX y, por ello, el arquitecto Lluís Domènech i Montaner construyó su sede en la calle Aragón de Barcelona. Un lugar céntrico y bien comunicado para una construcción que se convirtió en una de las primeras muestras del Modernismo arquitectónico barcelonés. Hoy, 'Núvol i cadira', la escultura de Antoni Tàpies, corona el edificio de la Montaner i Simon que se ha convertido en sede de la fundación del artista. Cuentan que Tàpies lo eligió nada más entrar en él y decidió colocar su creación en diálogo con la fachada como símbolo de la reflexión estética. Se trata de un edificio con historia desde sus orígenes. En un contexto como el de 1879, clásico y encorsetado, Domènech i Montaner idea un lugar polivalente e industrial para albergar la producción de libros y enciclopedias que acabarían en todas las casas de bien del viejo y del nuevo mundo. El arquitecto, preocupado por crear un estilo arquitectónico propio de la catalanidad y gran admirador del arte mudéjar, recibe el encargo de crear la edificación con total libertad. Y en ese instante revestirá de innovaciones su primer proyecto en serio como arquitecto. En la fachada se utiliza el ladrillo visto, novedad en las postrimerías del siglo XIX, y se usan materiales industriales como el vidrio y el hierro para adornar la estructura de palacio del edificio de la editorial. 1930. 2 Tomos - Edición según el texto de Francisco Rodríguez Marín, de la Real Academia Española, con comentarios de los más cervantistas seleccionados por Juan Givanel y Mas, de la Real Academia de Buenas Letras de Barcelona y precedida de la Vida y Semblanza de Cervantes por Miguel S. Oliver. Ilustraciones de Ricardo Balaca y José Luis Pellicer - Contiene LXXXI más 634 páginas - Numerosas pinturas a página completa - Folio Esta edición barcelonesa del Quijote de Montaner y Simón Editores, es una de las más lujosas .Sus dos tomos en folio, en excelente papel y mejor impresión, se adornan con las 44 cromolitografías a toda página firmadas por Ricardo Balaca y Luis Pellicer, y 252 cabeceras y remates xilográficos, grabados por maestros como J. Gómez, Smeeton,Tilly, Sadurní y Martí. Como había sucedido y sucederá con tantos artistas y editores que se acercan al Quijote, Ricardo Balaca no puede ver terminado su trabajo, ya que le sobrevino la muerte cuando sólo tenía la mitad de las estampas realizadas. Sigue de cerca el texto fijado por Hartzenbusch en 1863, con la consiguiente separación de la voluntad cervantina. El retrato de Cervantes que aparece al inicio de la edición fue grabado por B. Maura, uno de los maestros grabadores más importantes del momento. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        History of the Peloponnesian War

      Ashendene Press, 1930. Folio full cream vellum, spine with seven raised bands, lettered in gilt The History of the Peloponnesian War (Greek: π ) is a historical account of the Peloponnesian War (431-404 BC), which was fought between the Peloponnesian League (led by Sparta) and the Delian League (led by Athens). It was written by Thucydides, an Athenian historian who also happened to serve as an Athenian general during the war. His account of the conflict is widely considered to be a classic and regarded as one of the earliest scholarly works of history. The History is divided into eight books. Analyses of the History generally occur in one of two camps. On the one hand, some scholars view the work as an objective and scientific piece of history. The judgment of J. B. Bury reflects his traditional interpretation of the work: "[The History is] severe in its detachment, written from a purely intellectual point of view, unencumbered with platitudes and moral judgments, cold and critical." ] On the other hand, in keeping with more recent interpretations that are associated with reader-response criticism, the History can be read as a piece of literature rather than an objective record of the historical events. This view is embodied in the words of W. R. Connor, who describes Thucydides as "an artist who responds to, selects and skillfully arranges his material, and develops its symbolic and emotional potential." Benjamin Jowett (1817-1893) was born in Peckham, Kent, and grew up in Camberwell, the third of nine children. His father was a furrier originally from a Yorkshire family that, for three generations, had been supporters of the Evangelical movement in the Church of England; and an author of a metrical translation of the Old Testament Psalms. His mother was a Langhorne, related to John Langhorne, the poet and translator of Plutarch. At twelve, Jowett was placed on the foundation of St Paul's School (then in St Paul's Churchyard) where he soon gained a reputation as a precocious classical scholar. Aged eighteen he was awarded an open scholarship to Balliol College, Oxford, where he remained for the rest of his life. He went up in 1836, and was quickly recognized as one of the leading Oxford Dons of his generation, made a Fellow while still an undergraduate in 1838; he graduated with first-class honours in 1839. He was renowned as an influential tutor and administrative reformer in the University of Oxford, and as a translator of Plato and Thucydides -wikipedia Vellum a little toned, very slight rubbing at corners and joints, interior pristine With Philip C.

      London: The Cresset Press,, 1930. Illustrated by Rex Whistler. 2 volumes, folio in half-sheets. Contemporary green niger half morocco by Sangorski and Sutcliffe, raised bands to spines forming compartments gilt-lettered direct, vellum sides, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Housed in the ?original card slipcase (numbered 185). Hand-coloured frontispiece to each volume, 10 similar plates, vignette portait of Swift to title pages, 5 maps, head- and tailpieces, all engraved after the designs of Rex Whistler. Light marginal browning to endpapers from turn-ins, faint offsetting from a few engravings. A superb copy in the rubbed slipcase. First Cresset Press edition. Number 185 of 195 copies on handmade paper; there were also 10 copies on vellum. The short-lived Cresset Press, co-founded by John Eldred Howard in 1927 and run by Dennis Cohen and A. I. Meyers until 1931, produced fine editions of the classics and of Continental literature. Gulliver's Travels is one of the Press's finest books. The illustrative style of Rex Whistler (1905–1944), which the experimentalism of the 1920s, found its inspiration in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and so was well matched to Swift's classic. In this book Whistler employed his favourite device of setting most of the illustrations within a highly decorative rococo marginal frame. A beautiful copy of this masterpiece of book design.
