        Moby Dick or The Whale (3 Volumes)

      Chicago: The Lakeside Press, 1930. Deluxe Limited Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. First edition thus, limited to 1,000 copies. Three volumes in publisher's aluminum slipcase. Near Fine with light rubbing to boards as usual, light fading to spines, light rubbing at spine ends and light offsetting to pages from illustrations. A stunning set. John Schulman writes in the ABAA blog The New Antiquarian that this edition "is the crowning achievement of the Lakeside Press and also one of the triumphs of Machine Age book design and illustration in America. [Rockwell] Kentâ??s affinity for the sea and knowledge of sea-faring gave his illustrations even more power and accuracy." It also helped to propel Moby Dick from semi-obscurity into its current fame as perhaps the quintessential American novel.

        Albert Einstein: A Biographical Portrait.

      Albert & Charles Boni, New York 1930 - First edition of this Einstein biography. Octavo, original cloth. Signed and inscribed by Albert Einstein on the front free endpaper and dated in 1931 with a four line unique poem in German entirely in his hand, which translates, "This life is bizarre and unsound It looks clearer written down the urgencies that in the dark are touched don't frighten others very much." The recipient was the wife of Leonor Michaelis, who was a German chemist, and physician, known primarily for his work with Maud Menten on enzyme kinetics and Michaelis-Menten kinetics in 1913. Fine in the rare original dust jacket with some chips and wear. Rare and desirable. Albert Einstein developed the general theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics (alongside quantum mechanics). Einstein's work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. Einstein is best known in popular culture for his mass-energy equivalence formula E = mc2 (which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation"). He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics for his "services to theoretical physics", in particular his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect, a pivotal step in the evolution of quantum theory (David Bodanis).

      Alfred A. Knopf and Longmans, Green and Co New York and Toronto 1930 - First Canadian Edition (in correct Knopf issued First American Edition dustjacket). M. dustjacket art. Very scarce Fletcher title and biblio-mystery. "Would anyone commit violent murder for one musty old book? A famous American book collector, his body a mass of battered flesh, was found at the bottom of Harlesden Scar on the lonely Yorkshire moors."

In one of his Saturday Evening Post articles, Dr. Abraham Simon Wolf Rosenbach claimed that Essenheim was based on him, an homage which the mystery-loving Dr. Rosenbach enjoyed. Almost Near Fine, hint of a splash stain to spine, very mild cocking in nearly Very Good dustjacket, dime sized chip at lower spine end and lower front panel, some tiny edge chips, couple square inch sized light stain at mid rear panel, split along rear spine edge (mended at verso with archival tape).

        Photograph album documenting the fur trading and whaling voyages of Captain Christian Theodore Pedersen

      California, Alaska, Canada, and the Arctic, 1930. Good to Very Good. This 10" x 6.5" album contains 54 photographs documenting whaling, hunting, and fur-trading in the Arctic. The first 37 photographs have typed captions. A second grouping of 15 photos is captioned in a female hand, probably Mrs. Pedersen's. Two photographs accompany a letter mailed by Mrs. Pedersen to a friend in New Jersey. The album photos have been glued in place and are in nice shape. Newspaper clippings about the Pedersen's rescue of stranded Inuits and a feature story on Mrs. Pedersen headlined "White Woman Farthest in Arctic Zone" are in the rear. The album is missing most of its front cover; the binding cord is present and the album pages are in place however most of their binding holes have been torn. The first group of photos show walrus hunting, whale bombing and processing, polar bears, Roald Amundsen, Inuits, the Pedersens, blasting through ice packs, the Herschel Island settlement including warehouses owned by the Pedersens, and Vilhjalmur Stefansson's camp at Bank's Island. Ship photos include Patterson, Lady Kindersley, Maud, Nanuk, and Nigalik. Similar, but different images are in the second group of photos. The two laid in photographs are of a fox farm, the couple established on Rat Island (now Howadax Island), Alaska. The Pedersens were well-known among mariners sailing the Arctic waters during the first forty years of the 20th century. C. T. Pedersen began his whaling career in 1903 at the age of 17 he was captaining vessels. In 1914, he signed on with the H. Liebes, a San Francisco furrier, and began making annual whaling and trading trips on the company's schooner, Herman. After marrying May Olive Jordan in 1921, the couple made the annual sailings together, and Mrs. Pedersen, a former nurse, provided medicine and health care to Inuits at their stops. The Pedersens went into business for themselves in 1923 and continued their arctic voyages until 1938 when they retired from the sea to become full-time fur-traders. The Pedersen's produced at least three sets of the first collection of 37 photographs. A complete set is in the Henry Asbjorn Larsen fonds at the Library and Archives Canada, and a partial set is held in the Wood Family fonds at the Glenbow Museum. As of 2017 no other examples of the other photographs are located by OCLC. No similar albums are in the trade, and ABPC and the Rare Book Hub show no auction records for other Pederson materials.

        THE TRAGEDIE OF HAMLET PRINCE OF DENMARKE

      Weimar: Cranach Press, 1930. No. 100 OF 300 COPIES on handmade paper specially produced for the press (along with 15 on Japanese paper and seven on vellum). 362 x 241 mm. (14 1/4 x 9 1/2"). 186, [2] pp. No. 100 OF 300 COPIES on handmade paper specially produced for the press (along with 15 on Japanese paper and seven on vellum). Original cloth-backed paper boards, edges untrimmed, with the bound notes by John Dover Wilson in the rear pocket, as issued. In the (slightly worn) original cardboard slipcase. Illustrated throughout with woodcuts in the text by Edward Gordon Craig. Printed in red and black. Ransom, p. 253; "A Century for the Century" 21. Two short light scratches to lower cover, one tiny marginal smudge, otherwise A SPLENDID COPY, in as close to original condition as one is likely to find. Undertaken in what Franklin calls "a perfectionist spirit," this book brings together the most glittering names in English and German private printing at the time. In addition to the presence of the woodcuts by Craig, the typographical arrangement of the volume was done by Count Harry Kessler; the title was cut by Eric Gill; the type (in 18, 12, and 10 point black letter) was designed by Edward Johnston (after that used by Fust and Schoeffer in their Mainz Psalter of 1457) and was cut by Edward Prince, completed after his death by G. T. Friend; and the paper was made by a process devised jointly by Kessler and Aristide and Gaspard Maillol. Franklin says that "anybody who examines the Cranach Press 'Hamlet' must agree it is worthy of its reputation. The paper, superficially like Bachelor's Kelmscott, seems softer and more friendly, appropriate for the expressionist style of Craig's woodcuts. . . . These designs, and Gill's in the Golden Cockerel Chaucer, form the bravest artistic adventure among all private press books." The Cranach Press Hamlet is a sought-after book, and one seldom encounters in the marketplace a copy in its original boards in the near mint state seen here, especially with the easily soiled binding so remarkably well preserved.

        Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.

      Second Edition (Corrected Impression of the First Edition). Octavo. 211 pages. Original Hardcover. A rare,crisp example of the corrected 1930 version of Tolkien and Gordon's edition of the great Middle English Poem, Sir Gawain. The book is squarely bound in the original publisher's cloth with gilt decoration internally a little browning to pages. The ownership signature of 'D Rose 1936' appears on the first blank with further ink annotation to the text in the same hand. A very nice copy. Sir Gawain and the Green Knight (Middle English: Sir Gawayn and e Grene Kny?t) is a late 14th-century Middle English chivalric romance. It is one of the best known Arthurian stories, with its plot combining two types of folklore motifs, the beheading game and the exchange of winnings. The Green Knight is interpreted by some as a representation of the Green Man of folklore and by others as an allusion to Christ. Written in stanzas of alliterative verse, each of which ends in a rhyming bob and wheel, it draws on Welsh, Irish and English stories, as well as the French chivalric tradition. It is an important poem in the romance genre, which typically involves a hero who goes on a quest which tests his prowess, and it remains popular to this day in modern English renderings from J. R. R. Tolkien, Simon Armitage and others, as well as through film and stage adaptations. It describes how Sir Gawain, a knight of King Arthur's Round Table, accepts a challenge from a mysterious "Green Knight" who challenges any knight to strike him with his axe if he will take a return blow in a year and a day. Gawain accepts and beheads him with his blow, at which the Green Knight stands up, picks up his head and reminds Gawain of the appointed time. In his struggles to keep his bargain Gawain demonstrates chivalry and loyalty until his honour is called into question by a test involving Lady Bertilak, the lady of the Green Knight's castle. The poem survives in a single manuscript, the Cotton Nero A.x., which also includes three religious narrative poems: Pearl, Purity and Patience. All are thought to have been written by the same unknown author, possibly Cameron of Sutherland, dubbed the "Pearl Poet" or "Gawain Poet", since all four are written in a North West Midland dialect of Middle English (Wikipedia)

        Designs for Stained Glass Window

      England, 1930. 4 vols. Ink and watercolor on paper. Unframed, matted. Very good. 4 vols. Ink and watercolor on paper. Four Ecclesiastical Watercolor Drawings. Four stained glass designs by John Hardman & Co., formerly part of Hardman, Powell & Co. The company reached great popularity in the Victorian period making ecclesiastical fittings and ornaments for churches throughout England. The firm's interest in Gothic Revival led them to stained glass production in the late 1800s in which they then produced windows for churches around the world. These cartoons of windows are finely detailed showing the wide ranges of colors used in production. The two larger cartoons are annotated to indicate corrections of specific color choices.
