        1st editions of her first 4 novels, all inscribed to her Uncle; Jig-Saw (1925); Saw Dust (1926); If the Tree Is Saved (1929); For What? (1930)

      Duckworth, London 1930 - 1) Jig-Saw [Duckworth]: 1st edition. Cloth faded, spine soiled and with a tear to the tip, otherwise good condition. Signed presentation copy inscribed, "To Dear Uncle Willie with love from Barbara Cartland, 9-3-25." Armorial bookplate of William Hall; 2) Saw Dust [Duckworth]: 1st edition. Cloth faded, otherwise good. Signed presentation copy inscribed, "To darling Uncle Willie to whom I am indebted for many of the thoughts in this book, and especially for the interest, kindness, and helpful criticism always accorded me. With my best love, Barbara. March 20, 1926." 3) If the Tree Is Saved [Duckworth]: 1st edition. Cloth faded, otherwise good. Signed presentation copy inscribed, "To darling Uncle Willie with love from Barbara." 4) For What? [Hutchinson]: 1st edition. Cloth faded, edges soiled, one spot, else good. Signed presentation copy inscribed, "Uncle Willie with love from Barbara.". Barbara Cartland is the 3rd best selling author of all time (1 billion books), trailing only William Shakespeare and Agatha Christie. Our 4 books are all frustratingly scarce 1st editions, even without their dustjackets, just try and get any one of them. And it is only pretentious and crusty, subject scorning, literary snobbery (romance novels are trash), that prevents them from being 10 times as expensive as they are here, and your odds of finding another inscribed set (chasing the horizon), are lower than the chicken vote for Colonel Sanders, though I suppose you could try saying "Beatlejuice" 3 times, and see if that leads to anything.

He was passionately involved in the cause of Arab nationalism, and delivered a great many lectures on the subject of social justice and foreign policy.

        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.

        Christopher Robin & Asparagus: an Autograph Letter by A A Milne, author of Winnie the Pooh

      London, Chelsea - Cheam: Unpublished, 1930 Book. Very Good. No Binding. Signed by Author(s). 1st Edition. Autograph letter by A A Milne on '13 Mallord Street' headed paper (Christopher Robin's birthplace) discussing the boy's education and, in a comic aside, the Christopher Robin's diet, with a woman friend whom he'd recently met over dinner at Cheam School in Surrey: 'I'm wondering whether I oughtn't to have sent my boy to your school. Would he have had asparagus and a hot bath on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday? Well, it's too late now; but I'm sure you will be glad to hear that he is very happy at Boxgrove, and on friendly terms with everyone.' The letter which is dated May 22nd 1930 is written in black ink and signed in full. An early owner has removed the stamp from Milne's accompanying envelope and in so doing torn away a 3cm square from the lower right corner and left closed tears to the top right corner, catching Milne's flourish below his signature. This letter was inspired by a long typed poem sent by Mrs Taylor after her shared dinner with Milne and the letter was originally accompanied by the gift of fresh asparagus (see accompanying article in the Weekend Review): 'freshly cull'd from well cared beds... Your wife may say, "My dear, I really wish/ We knew who sent us this delightful dish?.... Turn your thoughts back to one cold winter's eve/ When Educational dinner you would leave... Remember how you peered into the gloom/ And heard a voice say "Sir, I'll take you home...' In his reply Milne thanks Mrs Taylor for her gift, acknowledging 'It was delightful like your poem...' Despite his reported good humour as a child in this letter Christopher Robin would come to resent what he saw as his father's exploitation of his childhood in the adventures of Winnie the Pooh and Christopher Robin and even A A Milne himself, writing in 1952 had to concede that he wrote them 'little thinking / All my years of pen-and-inking / Would be almost lost among / Those four trifles for the young'.

        [Chess manuscript]

      New York [?], 1930. 103-page quarto manuscript in double column, kept in a cloth-backed marbled-board binding presumably by Louis Apanowitz who apparently wrote a weekly column on chess for an unnamed newspaper, containing notes and summaries of chess matches and players (including death notices and short obituaries as well as short book reviews), and including detailed move-by-move accounts of matches between Salo Flohr and Emanuel Lasker; Adolf Anderssen and Lionel Kieseritzky; J. A. Blackburne and George Henry Mackenzie; George A. Ritzler and N. L. Colfax; Ruben Fine and Ernst Gruenfeld; Arnold Denker and Donald MacMurray, William Steinitz and Curt von Bardelebew; Dr. Max Euwe and Edgar Colle, and many others, most with a rather detailed commentary on moves and blunders. Most matches described are during the period 1880s to 1930s. Each "article" is headed by a number in Roman numerals (nos. XIX to LXXII inclusive) likely indicating a series of articles in the unnamed periodical. Much also on the Suburban Chess League and both the South- and North Jersey Chess Associations, and the Metropolitan Chess League of New York City. The manuscript drops off mid-sentence. Bound dos-a-dos is a 20-page color illustrated manuscript headed "Biology" with a number of reasonably accurate color drawings of a sunflower, red foxes, rats, bunsen burners, flasks, bell jars, etc. We believe this manuscript is subsequent to the chess manuscript described above.

Current book of verses was written while its author was imprisoned in 1928 for an illegal publication issued on behalf Latvian Independent Socialist party, of which he was a prominent member. By this time author became a convinced Marxist and his early avant-garde ideas are now expressed in "revolutionary" leftist nature poetry with a sharp critics of the capitalist world. These poems of hight artistic quality and laconic rhythm of verse, had a great impact on the development of Latvian Democratic literature.

        Romantika autobusa : dzeju cikls (Romantic of the Bus : Cycle of Poems)

      Tagadne, Riga 1930 - Latvian language. Octavo 11 x 16 cm. Weight 40 g. Wrappers, 48 [4] pp. The book is in Near Fine condition without any visible defects, losses, remarks and stains. Book cover shows minor foxing and very slight soiling to the spine edge; internally few occasional foxing spots. Current book can be considered as one of the best examples of leftist Avant-Garde in Latvian literature. Author's third cycle of poems was published in 1930, while he was close to the leftist "Trauksme" (Alarm) group of young poets influenced by Futurism and Constructivism. Members of the group were focused on the aspects of contemporary urban life and social contradictions, and current book of poems became a remarkable example of this movement. In order to reveal a new reality author, using the sharp contrasts of expressionism, depicted the city in his verses. He turned to suburbs and port areas, factories and working-class dwellings, favourite images were the beggars and the poor. In the poems dominates sad and pessimistic mood, skepticism and bravado, motives of loneliness and human alienation. Pavils Vilips (1901-1979) social-democratic Latvian poet, essayist and translator, collaborated with leading periodical editions, published about 15 poetry collections, also plays and prose writings. Book's cover is an amazing example of Constructivism created by Latvian and Soviet Avant-Garde graphic artist, devoted Communist Ernest Kalis (1904-1939), who is best known for avant-garde book and periodic designs, and producing of political posters. Was a Member of the Presidency of the Association of Artists of Revolutionary Russia. Participated in the revolutionary movement, and was repressed in 1937. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        ZIONISM: A collection of manuscripts and typescripts written by a participant in the Revisionist Zionist movement

      Palestine, 1930-43 31 items comprising 105 pages, 90 manuscript and 15 typescript, all in Hebrew. Various sizes. Generally in good condition. This collection of Zionist essays, letters, and other papers documents a crucial period during the British Mandate in Palestine. The author, Aryeh (Simochony) Friedlansky, was a member of the Revisionist Zionist movement founded by Ze'ev Jabotinsky. These newly discovered documents shed valuable light in the history of Revisionist Zionism. "Revisionists produced a rich corpus of writings on a wide range of topics, in the process creating a radical new vision of the Hebrew national revival" (Kaplan, The Jewish Radical Right). At its core Revisionist Zionism was nationalist and thus was at odds with Labor Zionism, the mainstream political system dominating Jewish institutions at the time. These papers record Revisionist Zionism's opposition to many of the political developments of the 1930s. Revisionist Zionism was a "comprehensive national philosophy that sought to refashion every aspect of Jewish national life in its image, a philosophy whose political and cultural imprint is still very much evident in modern-day Israel" (Kaplan). Subjects include: the formation and constitution of Friedlansky's Youth Group Union in Jerusalem in 1930, the Betar youth movement, Herzl, Jabotinsky, "A Letter to the High Commissioner of the British Mandate of Palestine," pro-Arab bias among the British, the rise of violence against Jews in Palestine, Arab riots, promotion of sports among Jewish youth, military service, conscription, and the promotion of a national spirit among Jews in Palestine. Many of the Revisionist documents in this collection demonstrate the movement's campaign for militant action. Several papers concern Jabotinsky's Betar, a Revisionist Zionist youth movement intended to abolish the "ghetto" mentality of the Jewish people and to cultivate a new kind of Jew powerful enough to build the state of Israel. In "The Sportive and Cultural Work in Betar," Friedlansky discusses how Jews must become strong and physically powerful in order to protect themselves. "The Question of Legion" and "Betar: A Movement of Liberation" oppose the stereotype of Jew as coward, arguing that a positive militaristic spirit must be instilled in Jewish youth. Unlike members of the Labor movement who saw themselves as workers tied to the land, "young Revisionists saw themselves as warriors, the leaders in the fight for independence" (Kaplan). This rare survival documents a major force in the development of the modern state of Israel. "The Revisionists embodied the dark side of the Zionist dream, and the violent and militaristic element that they represented has been ignored and overlooked by both the Zionist (and Israeli) academic and the political leadership ..." (Kaplan). This unusual collection merits preservation and scholarly investigation. A detailed description and inventory is available on request.
