        A Draft of XXX Cantos

      Paris: Hours Press, 1930. 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, the 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. Gallup, A31, a. Being a review copy, this example is not numbered.

        Blick auf die Insel Nordstrand mit Windmühle von Schobüll aus. Ölgemälde.

      Ölgemälde auf Platte, alt gerahmt, links unten mit *Petersen* signiert, undatiert ( ca. um 1930 ). Gezeigt wird der Blick von Schobüll/Husum an der Nordseeküste auf die Insel Nordstrand, unter weitem Himmel. Bildgröße: 49 x 63 cm ( Höhe x Breite ), alt gerahmt ( Rahmenmaß: 63 x 75 cm ). Laut Auskunft des Vorbesitzers in den 30er Jahren in der Galerie Commeter, Hamburg erworben. Leider lässt sich nicht zweifelsfrei feststellen ob das Bild von Wilhelm Petersen (*1900, Elmshorn - 1987 ebenda ) dem *Maler des Nordens* stammt - es scheint aber sehr gut möglich. Das Bild gering fleckig - eine Reinigung wäre wohl empfehlenswert, ansonsten - wie auch der Rahmen - guter Zustand.

      London; (1930): Faber and Faber Limited. First Edition. Octavo. 306pp. illustrated. While there have been several books written about Whistler, including the most noteworthy by the Pennells. The present volume is a study of the complex and fascinating personality of a man who was also a distinguished artist. Many could not capture his personality so, the author makes an attempt to present him (like one of his own pictures) bathed in the appropriate atmosphere and the proper distance inside the frame. There were those who disliked both he and his work and others who adored him. A fine copy beautiful bound by Sangorski and Sutcliffe in full tan polished calf, centrally stamped in gilt, title and board edges gilt raised bands, double green morocco gilt and compartments, turn-ins and all edges gilt, decorative endpapers housed in a slipcase matching the endpapers. A few small speckles to labels, a superb copy.

      The Hours Press 1930 - Whoroscope. Paris: The Hours Press,1930. One of 100 Copies, Signed by Samuel Beckett [#45]. With the orriginal wraparound band, announcing this work to have been awarded a £10 prize for having been the best poem on Time in a competition judged by Richard Aldington and Nancy Cunard. A near fine copy. Housed in attractive quarter calf clam shell box. The author's first separately published work - he had earlier contributed to 'Our Exagmination Round His Factification for Incamination of 'Work in Progress.'

Based according to Beckett on Adrien Baillet's late 17th-century life of Descartes, was awarded the 10 prize for the best poem on Time in a competition organized by Nancy Cunard's The Hours Press. As Beckett recollected in a letter to Cunard, 26 January 1959: ' Whoroscope was indeed entered for your competition and the prize of I think 1000 francs. I knew nothing about it till afternoon of last day of entry, wrote 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 I walked down to the Rue Guenegaud [the office of The Hours Press] and put it in your box. That's how it was and them were the days.' [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

Einstein’s host during his stay in Zürich was Frau Liese Karr, widow of a grain merchant distantly related to Einstein’s mother; Einstein had known the Karr family since his student days, when the Karrs had kept â€

        Michael and Mary A Play.

      London: Chatto & Windus, 1930. - FIRST EDITION PRESENTATION COPY WITH A 50 LINE MANUSCRIPT POEM. 1 vol., inscribed on the front blank endleaf "For my Darling from her Blue. I suppose you do know-" May 28th. 1930." The following two pages Milne has neatly penned and signed nine original verses, comprising a total of fifty lines, each relating to nine of the characters in his play and the actors who created the roles on the London stage. Bound in the publisher's tan/gray cloth, original printed paper spine label, chipped affecting one word, very minor rubbing to head and foot of spine and back corners, inner and outer hinges fine, minor foxing to first and last leafs otherwise internally clean and bright. PROVENANCE: The present volume was previously part of The Roy Davids Collection of Poetical Manuscripts and was originally acquired by him directly from the Milne family without any intermediate ownership. The affectionate inscription from Milne to his wife can be explained by the close of Michael and Mary; in the play the character of Michael turns to Mary, mother of their son, David, and proclaims 'I suppose you do know, Mary, that, much as I love him, I love your little finger - your funny little finger, more than all of David?', Mary gently replying 'I think I did know, Michael. You've got a funny little finger too'. Michael and Mary is considered to be one of Milne's most successful light comedic dramas and is a play about marriage, raising issues regarding law, religion, morality and illegitimacy. The play was originally staged in New York before moving to London where it opened at the St. James's Theatre on 1st February 1930 and starred Herbert Marshall and Edna Best (themselves married from 1928-40, and also the couple to whom Milne dedicated the present book) in the title roles. A year later Michael Balcon produced a film version of the play, retaining the stage cast in their roles. It was the first of Marshall and Best's co-starring talkies and was voted the third best British movie of 1932. The poem reads in part: "Michael - Rowe played nightly by a Bart Steers his way into the heart Only Michael's Marshall carriage Pulls him through that risky marriage" (the role of Michael created by Herbert Marshall) "Mary - When I hear your "Don't you dare to Touch me" I can hardly bear to Sit in silence. I am dying To burst in upon you, crying Thank you, Edna, very much. You Angel, nobody can touch you" (the role of Mary created by Edna Best) "David - When all of us are dead and gone And even Frankie Lawton's old If actors still come "off" and "on" And tickets still are bought and sold "How good"¿thee¿will say "That fellow - can't remember nameses - "Did - you know - in that rotten play "By what's-it at the old St. James's" (the role of David created by Frank Lawton) "Inspector - The burglar, whether British born or foreign Never escapes Inspector Thatcher (Torin) If she's a female crook, Inspector Thatcher Can always be relied upon to catch her" (the role of the Inspector created by Torin Thatcher) "Price - A horrible villain was Price, I'm afraid With his record of marriages hastily made At a registry office, and vice-less And, though it sounds odd, I am bound to confess That in voice and department, in manners and dress The way that you played him was priceless" (the role of Harry Price created by D. A. Clarke Smith) [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Les demi-vierges. Edition Définitive avec 16 illustrations de Gaston Fédit Gravées par Paul Baudier.

      Paris, Hachette, 1930. - in-8, 2ff.-IIIpp.-270pp.-2ff.- gravures en noir en vignettes et à pleines pages. Reliure Art-déco estampée "Reliure Jotau - breveté S.G.D.G." dans la marge inférieure du second plat. Plats de bakélite (résine thermo-durcissable) teintée bordeaux dans la masse, bords biseautés, montés sur gonds ; premier plat orné d'une frise métallique portant un décor floral et le titre en cartouche, filets horizontaux moulés, petite plaque de titre argentée au dos, tête or, doublures et gardes de papier peint, premier plat de couverture conservé. (Jotau, pour l'éditeur). (Collection Les grands Écrivains). Intéressant essai de reliure industrielle propre aux recherches technologiques et artistiques art-déco des années 20. Le procédé fut mis au point et breveté par Joseph Taupin (qui signa la reliure "Jotau") dans les ateliers de cartonnages et reliures Brodart et Taupin. Le grand relieur Pierre-Lucien Martin aurait participé au projet. D'une mise en ?uvre mécanique, voire industrielle, mais conservant des qualités esthétique et artistique, la reliure moulée selon le procédé "Jotau" est réalisée en "Pollopas", matière plastique proche de la galatite et des laques, mise au point par Kulhmann. Un coût de fabrication élevé mit fin à la production de ces étonnantes reliures, inspirées pourtant des doctrines de rationalisation et de gestion américaines. Jérôme Doucet in La Reliure, 1933, a consacré un article très technique à ce judicieux système où les plats sont quasiment indépendants du corps de l'ouvrage (charnières de type "piano"), facilitant ainsi la manipulation. Jean de Gonet a repris cette solution avec le "Rim", voici quelques années. - Exemplaire très frais, reliure intacte, à noter seulement de légers frottements visibles par miroitement, et l'ouverture du 2° plat freinée.

       Kunststoffmappe leichte Gebrauchsspuren,Inhalt: Im Sonnenlande Dalmatien (Geschrieben in Dresden, Jan. 1930) / Besuch bei Reinhold Braun (Dresden, Okt. / Nov. 1930) / In der Werkstatt Gottes / Christentum der Tat / Ewigkeit / Irdischer und göttlicher Beruf / Der Sinn des Lebens / Wo ist dein Bruder Abel? / Hab\' Sonne im Herzen! / Auszüge v. \"Stille Tage\": \"Funkelnd liegt der Morgentau auf Blüten und Blättern meines Gärtleins. Feierlich ragen die Berge zum lichtblauen Himmel empor, die Wiesen glänzen wie Demanten in der jungen Sonne, und der Bach singt ein Lied, das so wundersam traulich klingt, daß ich meine, die Worte dazu müsste Matthias Claudius, der Mann mit dem ewigjungen Kinderherzen, in einer seiner gesegnetsten Stunden geschrieben haben. Allmählich wacht das Leben auf rings um mich her. Hummeln mit ihren schillernden Flügeln, Falter mit der fröhlichen Harmonie ihrer Farben schwirren von Blüte zu Blüte, ihr Frühstück zu holen. Und ein Rotschwänzchen fliegt dicht zu mir her, wippt mit dem Schwanz und blinzelt mich an, als wollt\' es sagen: \'Ei, Guten Morgen! Bist du auch wieder hier?\' (...) \"Mein Häuslein hier oben ist schlicht und klein. Es birgt nur das Nötigste, dessen der Mensch bedarf. All das, was man im lauten Leben der Stadt glaubt nicht entbehren zu können, fehlt. Aber drei Fenster hat mein Zimmerlein, nach Osten, nach Süden und nach Westen; so fängt es die Sonne zu jeder Stunde des Tages auf. Auch mein Gärtlein ist klein. Doch es blüht darin alles bunt durcheinander. Und im Herbst, wenn die Goldraute ihre Dolden entfaltet, ist es wie ein lachendes, goldenes Märchen. Und in all dieser Schlichtheit und Einfachheit fühl\' ich mich so unendlich reich, und oft denk\' ich, wie wenig braucht doch der Mensch, um glücklich zu sein. Es ist gut, wenn man irgendwo ein stilles Fleckchen weiß, dahin man sich zuweilen flüchten darf aus dem Lärm und der Unrast der Welt. In dem rasenden Tempo des Lebens unserer Zeit fehlt eins: die besinnliche Stunde, in der wir in uns hineinschauen und uns Rechenschaft geben von unserem Denken und Tun. Die Stunde, in der wir, losgelöst vom Jetzt, fester und inniger verbunden sind mit dem Ewigen, um daraus Kraft zu schöpfen für den kommenden Tag. Denn, je stärker der Mensch wirken will in der Zeit, umso fester muss er wurzeln in der Ewigkeit, wenn sein Wirken zum Segen werden soll für ihn und die anderen.\"Peter Anreiner (29 Seiten) / Meine erste Bergfahrt (11 Seiten) / Der Herr Ratschreiber / Am Mummelsee / Wendelin Gstrein / Menschen am Großglockner / Begegnung mit Carl Maria von Weber (Buch enthält an dieser Stelle die Kopie einer seltenen Zeichnung von Walter Flemming mit dem Vermerk des Künstlers \"Zur Erinnerung an...
