        Malý ernoch [The Little Negro]

      [Brno], circa 1930. Limited Edition. Original woodcut print in black ink on translucent paper, affixed at top edge to cream-colored cardstock. Measures 24.5 cm x 26.5 cm (cardstock slightly larger). Signed, titled, and numbered (3/25) by the author on bottom edge. The image is a close-up of a black child in livery carrying a large glass on a salver. In the background, a small crowd, all facing away, is awash in the light of a chandelier. Helena Bocho áková-Dittrichová (1894-1980) was the first female wordless novelist, and the only woman to work in this medium during its heyday. She was born in the Moravian region of what is now the Czech Republic and spent most of her life in Brno, the Moravian capital. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and in 1923 received a government scholarship to study printmaking in Paris. Bocho áková-Dittrichová's unpublished wordless novel Malí ka Na Cestách [The Artist on Her Journey] recounts this period in her life. In Paris, she first encountered the wordless novels of Flemish artist Franz Masereel, the originator of the form, and was inspired to create her own. Over the course of her long career, Bocho áková-Dittrichová published several wordless novels, along with travelogues and historical works. She also worked as a printmaker and illustrator, and was highly regarded in her native land, though largely unknown elsewhere. This changed in 2014, when the National Museum of Women in the Arts held an exhibition of her work entitled "The First Woman Graphic Novelist: Helena Bocho áková-Dittrichová," and this important artist finally began to gain global recognition. Her work, however, is still not widely available.

        [Original Photograph Album of Children with Polio]

      Chicago: np, [ca. 1930-1959]. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Oblong 8vo. Commercial strong-bound album. Vinyl covered boards. 145 black and white; 4 color photographs verso and recto mounted to 23 black paper leaves, one or two elements loosely laid in. Front cover detached, but archivally mended. Edgewear to pages. Images generally clean, well preserved. A few prints perished. Overall very good. Original photograph album of the Zagar family of Chicago, focusing primarily on their daughter, Margaret Ann (b. 1936), and covering primarily the 1940's. Most prints snapshot in size, though notably several enlargements appear as well, including 4 class photographs between 1942-1950 from the Gompers School for the Handicapped on the city's South side at 123rd. and State St. Margaret Ann was apparently stricken with Polio at an early age, as early as 2 years old according to photograph dates, and her development is chronicled in detail, into young adulthood, closing with images of her in a wheelchair in December 1954. The images between present a rich visual archive of growing up with the disease.

      1930. First Edition . Signed. BECKETT, Samuel. Whoroscope. Paris: Hours Press, 1930. Slim octavo, original orange stiff-paper wrappers, staple-bound as issued: pp. [8]. $12,500.Limited first edition, number 130 of only 300 copies issued, an exceptionally rare presentation/association copy of Beckett's ""first separately published work,"" written in Paris in June 1930—""a milestone for Beckett""—inscribed on the limitation page by him, ""For William Targ With all good wishes Samuel Beckett (40 years later),"" in original wrappers. Famed editor, publisher and bibliophile William Targ, who placed Beckett first in his list of ""top ten"" authors to collect, was hailed as ""a modern Dr. Johnson,"" and often visited with Beckett on annual trips to Paris.Whoroscope is Beckett's ""first separately published workÂ… He wrote it in a matter of hours on June 15, 1930"" in Paris after hearing, at the last minute, of a literary contest sponsored by novelist Richard Aldington and Nancy Cunard's Hours Press. Especially appealing to the impoverished Beckett was the lure of a ten-pound prize—but to receive it he had to work quickly. Having spent months researching René Descartes in the Ecole Normale, he decided the poem ""would revolve around Descartes' curious penchant for eating eggs only when they had been hatched for between eight and ten days; there would be pain as well as humor in it; and time would be there as its theme, lurking scarcely visible beneath the surface. In a letter to Cunard, Beckett summarizes how quickly he wrote the poem. He recounts how he wrote the 'first half before dinner, had a guzzle of salad and Chambertin at the Cochon de Lait, went back to the Ecole and finished it about three in the morning. Then walked down to the rue Guénégaud and put it in your box. That's how it was and them were the days.'"" Only 24 when he wrote Whoroscope, the ""witty, eruditeÂ… 98-line poem impressed both Cunard and AldingtonÂ… [who] sent for Beckett the next day to congratulate him and present him immediately with the prize—in cash. He was delighted at his success and grateful for the much-needed windfall"" (Knowlson, Damned to Fame,118-119). It was Cunard and Aldington, as well, ""who suggested the addition of explanatory notes to the published version of the poem, in the manner of T.S Eliot's Waste Land [1922]. Whoroscope is Beckett's earliest surviving manuscriptÂ… Evidently short of writing paper, or too pressed for time to buy any, Beckett composed (or copied?) Whoroscope on five sides of stationary of Hotel Bristol, CarcassonÂ…. The leaves lack revision or the doodles to which Beckett resorts when hesitating. The poem was individually published by Hours Press in 1930"" (Cohn, Beckett Canon,12, 13n). ""Only a handful of people knew it had even been publishedÂ…. Nevertheless it was a milestone for Beckett"" (Blair, Samuel Beckett, 106).This virtually unobtainable limited first edition of Whoroscope, one of only 300 copies issued, is of particular importance as a presentation/association copy that is warmly inscribed by Beckett to famed editor, publisher and bibliophile William Targ, ""one of the greatest post-World War II editors."" At 22 the Chicago-born Targ ""began to amass what would eventually become a collection of thousands of rare books and first editions"" and he later became the powerful and beloved editor-in-chief at Putnam's (New York Times). On retiring in 1979 Targ founded the prestigious press, Targ Editions. His authors, as editor and publisher, include Saul Bellow, Henry Roth, Simone de Beauvoir, Tennessee Williams, Richard Wright and Mario Puzo, whose novel The Godfather Targ agreed to publish sight unseen after two other publishers had turned it down. At his death in 1999 Targ was remembered as ""a modern Dr. Johnson"" (Independent). In an oft-quoted essay on book collecting, Targ lists Beckett as first in his ""top ten"" authors to collect, and in his book, Indecent Pleasures (1975), writes of his keen anticipation before first meeting Beckett in Paris ""in the lobby of the Hotel MontalembertÂ…the prospect was dizzying, almost beyond my endurance"" (113). At Beckett's request, Targ would later arrange a meeting in Paris between Beckett and Targ's longtime friend, Saul Bellow. Limited first edition, number 130 of only 300 copies issued (100 signed). Federman & Fletcher 5. Interior fine; lightest edge-wear, mild soiling to original wrappers. A near-fine presentation copy with an especially memorable association.

        Two personal photograph albums relating to Catchpole's life at home in the United Kingdom, and to his time at Abadan in Iran and in Turkey.

      Persia, Turkey and other places, 1930s. - Oblong small folio. 2 albums, the first containing 237 original photographs, the majority snapshots but some larger, mostly captioned by hand, also with a loosely inserted pencil sketch captioned "Our first home Abadan '42. Drawing room with Persian rugs", the second containing 52 original photographs, snapshots or larger, and a further 27 images in paper wallet (some duplicates). Contemp. rexine or papered boards. Fascinating collection of private photos showing the Abadan Oil refinery and life on the site in the 1930s. A series of 120 or so images is devoted to William Catchpole's time on the Abadan oilfields near Basrah and Kuwait. Catchpole became a chemist with the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company in 1933, and presumably was asked to visit the plant in this capacity. The photographs of this period show scenes on the voyages out (aboard the MV British Pride, an Anglo-Iranian tanker), life in Abadan (including the horse races), and the refinery itself. A group of 16 images show elements of the refinery, including the "cracking plant", "distillation units", and other features. Other photographs show the docks, and several show flares in the desert. The second album is undated and uncaptioned, though examination of one loosened photograph reveals a pencilled note to the verso ("Turkey between Harida Pasha and Ankara"). The photographs in the album show recreational and work-related images, including boating events, a pipeline, and three of an unidentified refinery. - William Marcus Catchpole was a grandson of Nathaniel Catchpole, founder of the brewing company Catchpole & Co. of Suffolk. The family and the business were based at Whitton, and some of the images from the first album show scenes and people at home. William Catchpole attended Radley College, and further images show the college and rowers on the river; some 100 images in the first album relate to the family's life in the UK.

        A Draft of XXX Cantos.

      Limited edition, one of 200 copies printed on Canson-Mongolfier Soleil velin M.R.V. paper. 8vo. (vi), 7-141, (5) pp. Publisher's oatmeal linen, red lettered to the upper board and spine, though the latter is faded and the linen browned, bookplate of the academic, poet and translator Dudley Fitts to the front pastedown with an inscription to the opposing page with his name plus "...New York 1930 / for review Hound + Horn". Stylised initials to the start of each canto. Slight tenderness at the hinges, though the book remains sound.The Hound and Horn was founded by two Harvard undergraduates in 1927, whose literary work had been spurned by the Harvard Advocate. Gradually the outlook of the magazine broadened from its university roots and it published contributions from the likes of Gertrude Stein, T.S. Eliot and Ezra Pound; the latter appropriately enough given that the name of the magazine had been inspired by a line in his poem "The White Stag". The magazine eventually folded in 1934.

        Photograph inscribed

      1930. Signed. ROBESON, Paul. Photograph inscribed. London, circa 1937. Vintage sepia print measures 10-1/2 by 13-1/2 inches. $1800.Vintage promotional sepia print of Paul Robeson from the 1937 British film Big Fella, with Robeson standing with hands on his hips, inscribed in blue ink, “To ‘BuddyÂ’ from ‘Paul.”Paul Robeson ‘had so many talents he made acting seem narrowÂ… He was singer, actor and public speakerÂ… Robeson could sing the works of the masters; he could play OÂ’Neill and ShakespeareÂ… testament enough that hardly anyone now would dare to fill his partÂ… [but] because there were no ‘ordinaryÂ’ black parts save for servants or ‘boys,Â… a great deal of what he did [on film] depended on offers from Britain,” such as this role in Big Fella, directed by J. Elder Wills and produced in England (Thomson, 766). A musical loosely based on the novel Banjo by Harlem Renaissance writer Claude McKay, Big Fella is set on the Marseille waterfront and stars Robeson as a wanderer hired by a wealthy English couple to find their missing son. Light edge-wear and soiling, slight loss to corners, single tape repair to verso, small faint notation in red felt pen to lower right corner. A very good photograph, scarce inscribed.

        Photograph inscribed

      1930. Signed. PERSHING, John J. Photograph inscribed. No place: circa 1930. Photograph measures approximately 5 by 7 inches; with full border, approximately 8 by 10 inches. $1500.Handsome photogravure of General Pershing in military uniform, inscribed: “For Cook Post, American Legion, Yonkers, New York. With cordial good wishes. John J. Pershing.”John Joseph “Black Jack” Pershing was the most accomplished American soldier of WWI. PershingÂ’s charismatic personality and his extensive experience in prior military initiatives had made him the logical choice to command the Allied Expeditionary Force during World War I. After the Allied victory in 1918, Pershing emerged as the most celebrated American hero of the war. Congress honored him by creating a new rank, General of the Armies, and he later served as Chief of Staff from 1921 to 1926. The inscription and the signature are written in two different inks, signifying that the inscription was in all probability written at a later date. Fine condition.

        Treatise on Money

      1930. First Edition . KEYNES, John Maynard. A Treatise on Money. London: Macmillan, 1930. Two volumes. Octavo, original blue cloth, original dust jackets. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $7500.First edition of Keynes’ important work on monetary theory, in rare original dust jackets.""The world-wide slump after 1929 prompted Keynes to attempt an explanation of, and new methods for controlling the vagaries of the trade-cycle"" (PMM 423). ""In 1930, Keynes brought out his heavy, two-volume Treatise on Money, which effectively set out his Wicksellian theory of the credit cycle. In it, the rudiments of a liquidity preference theory of interest are laid out and Keynes believed it would be his magnum opus…[however, criticism was swift and extreme] and the Treatise led to the formation of a reading group, known as 'the circus,' composed of young Cambridge economists Richard Kahn and others… Kahn dutifully delivered reports of the Circus's discussions to Keynes, who subsequently began revising his ideas. One resulting criticism of the Treatise was that it failed to provide a theory of the determination of output and employment as a whole— a particular pertinent question given the huge amount of unemployment at the time"" (History of Economic Thought). As a result of the controversy over the Treatise on Money, and the subsequent discussions and debates that arose from it, Keynes produced his greatest work, The General Theory, which literally began a revolution in American economics. AMEX 254. Books near-fine, with a single tear to head of each spine and slight toning to spines. Rare dust jackets with expert restoration. A desirable copy.
