        Archive of 23 WPA Federal Theatre Project Photographs

      A collection of 23 different WPA Federal Theatre Project photographs. Circa 1930. Each is 8" x 10" black and white. All but a couple have the stamped backmark "Please Credit WPA Federal Theatre Project Photos" or a similar variant of that message. All are formal portraits of actors, some of them obviously of the quirky character variety. Condition overall is near fine or better with a very few having creases or small tears. Slight evidence suggests these were for a Broadway-based group of actors. .

        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.

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.

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.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM THOMAS B. CLARKE TO MANTLE FIELDING, DISCUSSING ARTISTIC BUSINESS MATTERS]

      New York, 1930. [2]pp. on a single. octavo sheet of stationery. Old fold lines, minor wear. Near fine. Noted art collector and Winslow Homer patron Thomas B. Clarke writes to Mr. [Mantle] Fielding on artistic business matters, discussing the current values of American art, etc. In part: "...Mr. Cochran (of J.P. Morgan & Co. has given several more American paintings to Andover Academy, among them 'Eight Bells' by Winslow Homer. In the 'Nineties' Homer asked me to come to his studio...on Washington Square. I went there and he said 'Clarke here is a picture that I have just finished working on, and I have named it 'Eightbells.' I said 'Mr. Homer will you sell it to me?' He replied 'Yes, and I will accept $400 from you.' In 1899... it fetched over $4000.... Levy sold 'Eight Bells' later to one of his clients.... This buyer 'parted with it' very recently for the Andover collection for the sum of seventy thousand dollars! Some commentators upon this sale say that this price was low! The rapid advances of certain works of art by American painters seems very remarkable to me.... My inclination for the selection of oil portraits from life was manifest in the sale of my collection, and at the end of the sale I started to accumulate the paintings now hanging in the Museum in Fairmount Park Phila. and in my residence here (there are 171 in all - I feel like hiding!). ... You and I have known of marvellous increases in the values of portraits of Washington by Stuart, Peale and others. Copley, Trumbull, Sully et al also lead in the great advances. In coming years will portraits by these men mount in value? I feel such a situation is absolutely certain...." Thomas Benedict Clarke (1848-1931), American patron and art collector, is considered by many to be the foremost patron of American painters during the late 1800s. He was praised for his attention to American artists at a time when they considered themselves neglected or ignored. Mantle Fielding is remembered today for his works on portraits of Washington.

        Moby Dick or The Whale

      Chicago: The Lakeside Press,, 1930. 3 volumes, quarto. Recent black morocco, titles and pictorial blocks to the spines and front boards in silver copied from the original, black and white patterned paper, silver edges. Illustrated throughout by Rockwell Kent. Fine. First Rockwell Kent edition, limited to 1,000 sets, signed by the author on the limitation page at the end of volume 3 . It is considered to be one of the finest editions of Melville's masterpiece and one of the great American illustrated books of the 20th century. In 1926 Rockwell Kent (1882–1971), then just beginning to establish his fame as an artist, was approached by R. R. Donnelley and Sons to illustrate a new edition of Richard Henry Dana's Two Years Before the Mast. Kent demurred, suggesting Moby Dick instead. Kent was given complete freedom to design and illustrate the three-volume set. The resulting work has been hailed as a masterpiece of 20th-century book illustration and credited with reviving public interest in a sublime but difficult novel.

        PROPAGANDA OF NURSERIES IN KOLKHOZ] Pochemu neobkhodimy iasli v kolkhozakh [i.e. Why the Nursery in Kolkhoz is Necessary]

      Gosmedizdat, Moscow 1930 - 8 pp. 17x13 cm. In original illustrated wrappers. Near fine. Very rare. This tiny brochure from the series 'The Health of Kolkhoznik' is dedicated to the explanation of the purpose of nurseries and why they are good for the parents. The collectivization of its agricultural sector in USSR started in 1928, so this brochure was supposed to reach newly made kolkhoz and sovkhoz. The most interesting thing is that the book explains basic simple things, e.g. children of different ages need different care, and in the nursery there are medical personnel and educators who understand this and can provide needed care. It is also interesting to note unusual practices specific for kolkhoz: children were examined after arrival, changed into clean clothes, and personal clothes were put into a bag. Another goal of this edition was to educate the mother - nursery was a sort of a school for young mother where she could learn while watching personnel how to properly handle children in terms of hygiene especially. In fact nurseries reduce the mortality of children. In the end, it is noted that a nursery is a way to relieve a peasant woman from hardships and superstitions and that she builds a bright future along with men. In USSR nurseries and kindergartens were being built since its first days as the young state needed millions of workers. Maternity leave lasted for two months after the baby was born. Mothers had to get back to work, there were no excuses. Worldcat locates no copies. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Shell Motor Tours. A complete guide to the best and most interesting provincial and desert routes in Egypt.

      Cairo: Shell Company and the Royal Automobile Club of Egypt, 1930 - Octavo. Original card wrappers printed in red and black. A little rubbed and soiled on the wrappers, light marginal toning, overall very good. First edition of this extremely uncommon early moto-tourist handbook for Egypt, with no copies traced in libraries. Tours are listed with Cairo and Alexandria as starting points, beginning with 50-mile round trips, such as Cairo to the pyramids at Saqqara, and extending to considerably longer journeys, including Cairo to Luxor and Alexandria to the isolated Siwa Oasis, testament to a time when Egypt was perhaps more easily navigable than it is today. Routes are meticulously described and the notes pages are filled with detailed itineraries in manuscript, not limited to Egypt but also including routes to Jerusalem and Petra.
