        Palestine: Report on Immigration, Land Settlement and Development. By Sir John Hope Simpson, C.I.E. 1930. Presented by the Secretary of State for the Colonies to Parliament by Command of His Majesty. October, 1930.

      Printed and Published by His Majesty's Stationery Office, London, England 1930 - 245 x 155 mm. 185 pages plus a foldout graph attached to rear wrapper. Tear and chip to wrappers. The Report, known as the Hope Simpson Report, following the Hope Simpson Enquiry, was a product of the British commission that Simpson led. It was formed in August 1929, followed the 1929 rioting and pogroms by the Arabs and its conclusion was to be, and was, to limit Jewish Immigration, Land Settlement and Development issues in the British colony of Palestine, known as British Mandatory Palestine, as recommended by the Shaw Commission after the pogroms. The report, dated October 1, 1930, was published October 21, 1930 and it recommended limiting Jewish immigration based on Palestine's alleged economic absorptive capacity. The Passfield White Paper was also dated October 1, 1930, and recommended similar limiting of Jewish immigration. Then, as now, the Arabs were more numerous, had oil, and were not Jews.

        Handbuch der geographischen Wissenschaft. Mit zahlreichen Abbildungen und Karten. 13 Bände.

      Akademische Verlagsgesellschaft Athenaion 1930-1940, Potsdam - Zusammen 6643 Seiten. Großformatige Orig.-Halblederbände (ca. 29 x 23,5 cm) mit je 2 farbigen, goldgeprägten Leder-Rückenschildchen, der letzte Band "Deutsches Reich II" von 1940 wurde kriegsbedingt vom Verlag nur noch als Orig.-Leinenband in sonst gleicher Gestaltung ausgeliefert. Das Werk zieht die Summe des damaligen geographischen Wissens und ist überaus reich mit Fotos, Landkarten, montierten Farbtafeln und gefalteten Kartenbeilagen illustriert. Es erschien in einzelnen Lieferungen, denen der Verlag nach Abschluß der Bände Einbanddecken in blauem Leinen bzw. mit blauem Maroquin-Lederrücken und -ecken folgen ließ (weshalb häufiger un- oder nur teilgebundene Exemplare vorkommen). Aufgrund des langen Erscheinungszeitraums und den emigrationsbedingten Niedergangs des Bürgertums sind vollständig gebundene Exemplare, die auch den erst nach Kriegsbeginn 1940 erschienenen letzten Band umfassen, recht selten. Im einzelnen handelt es sich um folgende Bände: Allgemeine Geographie, Teil I: Physikalische Geographie (1933), Teil 2: Das Leben auf der Erde (1933); Afrika (1930); Australien und Ozeanien, Antarktis (1930); Süd-Amerika (1930); Südost- und Südeuropa (1931), Nord- und Mittelamerika, die Arktis (1933); Mitteleuropa (außer Deutsches Reich), Osteuropa (1935); Vorder- und Südasien (1937); Nordasien, Zentral- und Ostasien (1937); West- und Nordeuropa (1938); Das deutsche Reich I und II (1938-1940). Dank des schweren Kunstdruckpapiers sind die Seiten nicht vergilbt. Wegen des hohen Gewichts der Ausgabe kann eine Lieferung ins Ausland nur gegen erhöhte Versandkosten erfolgen (bitte nachfragen!). 2 Bände mit Unterstreichungen und Randnotizen in Bleistift auf ca. 70 Seiten. Unser Exemplar wie üblich mit schönen roten, aber fast durchgängig verblaßten grünblauen Rückenschildchen sowie einem gleichmäßig verblaßten Lederrücken (Australien), insgesamt handelt es sich jedoch um ein gut erhaltenes, ordentliches und vollständiges Exemplar mit nur leichten Gebrauchsspuren.

        Mon oncle Benjamin. Avec les variantes, une clef des Personnages du roman par Alfred Massé. 12 fac-similés et 184 aquarelles originales par Pierre Paschal.

      Dorbon Aîné, Paris, s.d. (1930) - Dorbon Aîné, Paris, s.d. (1930) 2 volumes in-4 (27,5 x 21,5 cm) de LI-206 et 207 à 442-(1) pages (pagination continue). Reliure plein maroquin châtaigne, dos à nerfs, tête dorée, non rogné, encadrement intérieur de maroquin souligné de trois filets dorés concentriques (reliures signées P. MANNE). Exemplaire à l'état proche du neuf. Quelques légères décharges sur quelques feuillets en regard des aquarelles. Tous les papiers de soie protecteurs sont présents, reliés dans les volumes. Tirage à 520 exemplaires. Celui-ci, 1 des 450 sur papier vélin à la forme de Vincent Montgolfier filigrané au bouquineur (papier spécialement fabriqué pour l'éditeur Dorbon). Les aquarelles au pochoir sont dues à Jacomet. Le roman est constitué par le récit d'un narrateur rapportant quelques épisodes de la vie du frère de sa grand-mère, Benjamin Rathery, qui est donc en réalité son grand-oncle. Le lieu du récit est Clamecy, l'époque est la fin du règne de Louis XV ou le règne de Louis XVI, au moins dix ans après la bataille de Fontenoy. Le narrateur est le fils de Gaspard Machecourt, fils aîné de la sœur de Benjamin et d'un huissier de justice de Clamecy. Âgé de 28 ans, Benjamin Rathery est un médecin peu convaincu, ne voulant pas payer ses dettes, plutôt amateur de bonnes bouteilles, assez cultivé, portant l'épée, célibataire convaincu. Sa sœur, chez qui il vit, cherche à le convaincre de se marier, ce qu'il accepte à la suite d'un incident de beuverie : il a blessé son beau-frère au cours d'une parodie de duel. Le choix se porte sur la fille d'un autre médecin des environs, Minxit. Claude Tillier, né le 11 avril 1801 à Clamecy (Nièvre) et mort le 12 octobre 1844, fut un pamphlétaire et romancier français. Fils d'un serrurier aux maigres ressources, il réussit à suivre des études au lycée de Bourges grâce à une bourse accordée par la ville de Clamecy. Ses classes terminées, la modicité de sa fortune l'oblige à embrasser la profession de maître d'études à Soissons, puis à Paris. Il raconte dans ses mémoires comment « son bouquet de rhétorique au côté, comme un domestique à la Saint-Jean, il alla offrir ses services aux revendeurs de grec et de latin de la capitale ». Il finit par être renvoyé, et, en 1821, il tombe au sort et effectue un service militaire de six ans. À son retour, il est nommé instituteur puis directeur d'école. Parallèlement, il œuvre comme journaliste à L’Indépendant à Clamecy, puis à L’Association, un journal démocratique de Nevers, pour lesquels il écrit aussi des feuilletons. Ses prises de position à l'encontre des notables locaux lui coûtent son poste de directeur à Clamecy. Il meurt d'une maladie de poitrine et repose à Nevers Sobres et élégantes reliures de Paul Manne sur un classique de la littérature nivernaise. Paul Manne (ancien élève de l'École Estienne établi à Paris rue Princesse en 1933, puis rue Mabillon en 1934, décédé en 1981 - Fléty, Dict. des relieurs p. 119) Somptueux exemplaire ayant eu les honneurs de reliures en plein maroquin de qualité.

The edition uses Peter Motteux's translation of Don Quixote, from the 1743 seventh edition. Motteux's translation was first published in 1700–3, and was widely admired throughout the 18th and 19th centuries for its lucidity and wit.

        Diritto delle Pandette. Traduzione dei professori Carlo Fadda e Paolo Emilio Bensa con note e riferimenti al diritto civile italiano

      Utet, 1930. Cinque volumi di cm. 22,5, pp. 4.000 ca. complessive. Legatura editoriale in piena tela rigida. Sporadiche annotazioni a matita. Esemplare ottimamente conservato. Bernhard Windscheid (1817-1892) fu il principale esponente della Pandettistica tedesca; le sue Pandette gli garantirono un'autorità senza pari. Così Franz Wieacker (Cfr. Storia del diritto privato moderno, Milano, 1980, II, p. 145): "Opera principale di W. rimangono tuttavia le Pandette. Esse divennero in breve la riconosciuta autorità scientifica per la prassi giuridica. Questo loro ruolo eccezionale era dovuto al fatto che, in mancanza di una codificazione, il manuale del W. rappresentava l'ultima istanza scientifica per la prassi del Diritto comune... In tal modo potè concentrarsi nel rinomato manuale di Pandette una somma di autorità che oggi si riparte su fattori di diversa natura: la legge, la Corte suprema, il grande commentario, il manuale". I tre volumi dell'opera di Windscheid seguono il seguente ordine espositivo: Del diritto in genere; Dei diritti in genere; Diritto delle cose; Diritto delle obbligazioni, Diritto di famiglia e Diritto successorio. Gli ultimi due volumi contengono le note di Fadda, Bensa e Bonfante. Non comune e sempre assai ricercato. Cfr. Iccu..

        Memories of a Working Women's Guild. Offprint from.

      The Yale Review, September 1930 - Octavo, pp. 121-138. Tear-sheets side-stapled in original blue printed wrappers. Slight creasing to extremities, light browning to edges. First printing of this essay, reprinted (revised) as the introduction to Life as We Have Known It, Margaret Llewelyn Davies (ed), Hogarth Press 1931; collected in The Captain's Death Bed, 1950; Selections from Her Essays, 1966; Collected Essays, Vol. 4, 1967. Woolf had an active interest in the Labour Party and Co-operative Movement and regularly held meetings for her local branch of the Women's Co-operative Guild. This work engages in a discussion of the social movement and her position of privilege, showing her awareness that she sits as a "benevolent spectator" to the actions of the guild (Carroll, p. 123).

        Original costume design for Rimsky-Korsakov's opera Le Coq d'Or by the noted Russian artist Alexandre Benois, in all likelihood for the character Commander Polkan

      - Watercolour, pencil, and ink on wove paper. 372 x 260 mm. Signed by the artist with initials and dated 1930 in pencil at lower left. With detailed notes on costumes in Benois's hand in French marked "N.B." at upper left.Slightly worn, browned, and soiled; small hole just to left of pencilled date. Rimsky-Korsakov's last opera, Coq d'Or (The Golden Cockerel) was first performed in Moscow at the Solodovnikov Theatre (Sergey Ivanovich Zimin's private opera company), on September 24/October 7, 1909. It is in a prologue, three acts, and an epilogue by Nikolay Andreyevich Rimsky-Korsakov to a libretto by Vladimir Nikolayevich Bel'sky after the eponymous imitation folk tale in verse by Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin, based in turn on 'The House of the Weathercock' and 'Legend of the Arabian Astrologer' from The Alhambra by Washington Irving."The Golden Cockerel is the only one of Rimsky- Korsakov's 15 operas to have achieved repertory status beyond Russia. This was Dyagilev's doing. At the prompting of the artist Alexandre Benois, the great impresario staged the opera in Paris and London in 1914 (under the title Le coq d'or, which has stuck to it in the West), with the singers seated in rows at the sides of the stage, accompanying the movements of dancers and mimes, who enacted the plot according to the conventions of ballet d'action (choreography by Fokin). It also set an important precedent for Stravinsky, whose opera The Nightingale, not to mention such later stage works as Renard, The Wedding and Pulcinella, to a greater or lesser extent embodied the same split between singing and movement. It was an important stage in the modernist dismantling of the Gesamtkunstwerk." Richard Taruskin in Grove Music Online.Benois is considered a seminal influence on moddern ballet set and costume design. "In 1901, [he] was appointed scenic director of the Mariinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg, the performance space for the Imperial Russian Ballet. He moved to Paris in 1905 and thereafter devoted most of his time to stage design and decor. During these years, his work with Diaghilev's Ballets Russes was groundbreaking. His sets and costumes for the productions of Les Sylphides (1909), Giselle (1910), and Petrushka (1911), are counted among his greatest triumphs. Although Benois worked primarily with the Ballets Russes, he also collaborated with the Moscow Art Theatre and other notable theatres of Europe." Wikipedia [Attributes: Signed Copy]
