        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.

        Whistler

      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.

        Original Manuskripte / Aufzeichnungen von Wilhelm Steinkopf

       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...

        Autograph draft of poem to Liese Karr

      Zurich, 1930. Einstein, Albert (1879-1955). Autograph draft of an untitled poem in German, written to Liese Karr. 1 sheet, written on the back of a mimeographed slip, two lines canceled but legible. Zürich, 1930 (dated in pencil by Einstein’s secretary, Helen Dukas, in the upper right corner). Tear at vertical crease, small chip in one margin, but very good. A charming example of Einstein’s gift for light verse. In November 1930 Einstein visited Zürich to be f?ted as a special guest of honor at the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology—the famous ETH, where he had received his diploma in physics in 1900 and later served as professor of theoretical physics. 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 “a watchful but discreet eye” on him during his time at the ETH (Clark, Einstein: The Life and Times, p. 25). Einstein’s poem, thanking Frau Karr for her hospitality, appears to have been drafted on the day of his departure by train for Berlin. The poem can be translated as follows: Dear Liese, before I rush off I still send you this line I heard many Swiss citizens Who talked untiringly This celebration was not in vain For it filled up my purse Valiant men, true and worthy, Not for nothing sparkles their plumage Now that it’s all over Can I find rest again Now […] it’s enough Today at four my train leaves To you, however, full of regret I say farewell It was cozy at your house You, your cat, your child and your feast.

This collection contains 32 issues (an incomplete run) published between June 1930 and August 1935. There is a break in the collection, resuming in June 1950 with seven additional issues including the last edited by Chase, March 1952. A single issue from 1955 and another from 1958 complete the collection. In all, 42 issues of this interesting publication. A monthly magazine "for Greeting Card Dealers" published by Rust Craft Cards of Dedham, Massachusetts, self-described as "The House that Sentiment Built." The September, 1955 issue states the Ernest Dudley Chase "merged his own publishing business with Rust Craft in 1921, and became Creation, then Advertising Manager, and is now a Vice-President. For years he edited 'The Rustler' and 'The Rustonian.' He is also author of "The Romance of Greeting Cards," the first and only history of the industry." A Smithsonian Institute web site reports "The Rust Craft Greeting Card Company.was begun as a little bookshop by Fred Rust (1877?-1949) in Kansas City, Missouri, 1906. He consolidated his business in Boston in 1914. In the 1950s the company relocated to Dedham, Massachusetts and in 1981 merged with the Norcross Company." The Smithsonian site also states that their collection (chiefly Norcross cards) is "not only a history of the development of the greeting card industry but also a history of social trends in the United States" and gives "an indication of the quality and technology of the [printing] industry."

        Globe-Gliding

      Diessen: Roving Eye Press,, 1930. Octavo. Original purple paper wrappers, titles in gilt to front cover. Spine sunned and rubbed at edges of spine, creasing to tips, lower edge a little dusty, smudge to ink p. 43; a very good copy. First and sole edition of this book of poems, which are listed as "Stops" alphabetically by location. Roving Eye Press was initially founded in the late 1920s by Bob Brown and co-managed by his wife Rose. It was part of a larger literary and artistic movement of small presses that served the modernist avant-garde, including Nancy Cunard's Hours Press. Cunard described Brown as, "at the very centre of his time, a zeitgeist in himself" (Saper p. 179). Roving Eye Press was mobile in both geography (moving with Brown from the spa town Bad-Ems, Germany, to Cagnes-sur-mer, France, and much later, in the 1950s, to New York City) and scope (publishing art, poetry, political pamphlets and even cookbooks). In 2014, a small group of some of Bob Brown's (Robert Carlton Brown II) great grandchildren, together with a group of scholars, re-launched Roving Eye Press. This title is well-held institutionally in US but not in the UK, and is scarce in commerce.

        Hamlet; The Tragedie Of Hamlet Prince Of Denmarke Edited By J. Dover Wilson Litt.D. From The Text Of The Second Quarto Printed In 1604-5 `According To The True And Perfect Coppie' With Which Are Also Printed The Hamlet Stories From Saxo Grammaticus And Belleforest And English Translation Therefrom

      Cranach Press, Weimar 1930 - Weimar: Cranach Press, 1930. The Red Count's Hamlet.Count Harry Kessler's very own copy of the Cranach Hamlet, bound in full red-brick levant morocco leather by Otto Dorfner, signed binding. This is by far the best binding of the book, one of perhaps three dozen bound thus (Brinks 140) The colophon in this copy, printed in red, states simply: "This copy is not for sale It was printed for Count Harry Kessler" For this copy, Count Kessler had Dorfner additionally bind in (at the rear) the two full page advertisements for the English edition, both on the same Malliol-Kessler paper. J Dover Wilson's "Notes on The Tragedie of Hamlet," is inserted (as usual) into a sliding compartment attach to the inside back board. The interior of the book is in excellent condition: there is some bottom edge foxing on the following pages 76-81 (three leaves) and 124-127 (two leaves), not affecting the text or images. The book was printed damp, and these leaves may have had a little extra moisture. In any event, this is not a storage defect. Binding is sound. Conservator Stuart Brockman has expertly inserted thin vellum tabs under the leather spine, reducing pressure on the boards, allowing the book to opened safely. The front board gutter has also been lightly refurbished (previously dry and a little flakey). The book is housed in a matching red-brick quarter morocco clamshell, also by Brockman, with his binder's tag. This copy was likely with Kessler in Lyon when he died as it came to its previous owner through a binder in Lyon. This is the first appearance of the book in trade and an unqualified high-spot of fine printing. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
