      [New York: Standard Oil, c.1930s] - 150-piece puzzle printed in colour on a cardboard backing (435 × 285 mm). With the original brown paper wrapper printed in black. A couple of small spots to the lightly toned wrapper. In excellent condition. Puzzle and wrapper window-mounted, glazed, and presented in a black and red wooden frame. Overall size: 101 x 63 cm. During the 1930s, and prior to his career as an author, Theodore Geisel worked as an illustrator for the Standard Oil Company, where he designed the successful "Quick Henry, the FLIT!" bug-spray ads in which characters are menaced by gigantic Seussian pests. The artist's contract with the company lasted for 15 years and covered numerous products. This puzzle is part of Standard Oil's "Moto Monsters" campaign, featuring five car-damaging beasts who can be defeated by Essolube. It depicts a family happily driving away in their convertible as the monsters look on in annoyance, and advertises Essolube in the top right corner. An attractive puzzle in superb condition, this is one of the rare items that Seuss produced for children long before he was known as a children's book author.

        4 TYPED LETTERS, INCLUDING 3 SIGNED, by the Modernist poet WALLACE GOULD admired by William Carlos Williams & Marsden Hartley.

      Circa, [1930].. [1930].. - Four letters by the poet Wallace Gould addressed to John Hyde Preston, author of "Mad Anthony Wayne" and "Revolution 1776" and associated with "Direction" Magazine. Three of the letters are signed by Gould, the other unsigned but with a manuscript correction in the poet's hand. All four letters are typed on 14 inch high by 8-1/2 inch wide buff paper. Each, directly or indirectly mentions his book "Aphrodite" which he would like to correct and revise by hand. In what appears to be the first letter, with over 400 words densely typed on one page, Gould writes to Preston: "I have intended to write you... I shall ask you if you possess a volume of Aphrodite. If so, would you find it interesting to possess in exchange for it another, with subsequent corrections and revisions? I have a great desire to place such a volume in your possession frankly with the ulterior motive of its being thus preserved for posterity.... Like so many other publishing houses, the Macaulay house is primarily interested in socialism and negrophilism and memoirs of famous bad women, including Peggy Joyce, but not Aphrodite, and has taken up the publication of poetry only as a new broom to sweep out Eleanor Glynn...." Far from wealthy, Gould inquires whether a play to be performed at the University is free: "And do I understand rightly that a Greek play is to be given soon at the University? ... And like Pericles, does Jefferson open the theater free to the mob? I quiver in suspense." Signed in full "Wallace Gould".<p>In a second letter, nearly 600 words densely typed on 2 pages, Gould again inquires about Aphrodite, apologizing for the necessity of trading copies with Preston because his "financial affairs have come to a crisis here...." He comments on Preston's forthcoming book "Mad Anthony Wayne": "I am eager to read the history of your American madman. Get the publishers to do up the book, so that you will have no excuse for not sending it." He goes on to say: "You asked about Farmville. Farmville is where Lee surrendered ----- southern Virginia, middle southern, a hundred and some miles from Richmond. No, less than a hundred.... Peggy Hopkins Joyce and I put Farmville on the map. She was born here...." Signed in full.<p>In his third letter of approximately 380 words, Gould now addresses his friend as "My dear Preston" and indirectly inquires if Preston has received his copy of Aphrodite. He goes on to reveal that "You and Alfred Kreymborg are the only ones I ever write to, these days. Do you know Alfred? He is an exception to the rule that applies to the artistic cult, so far as old fashioned friendship goes...." He later asks, "By the way, honey, solve a mystery for me if you can. In the November number of Harper's (I think November) there was a sonnet with a strange theme. It was written by a woman by the name of Onsett or some such name and was called Expatriate ------- was all about some poor devil playing solitaire as I do in my own poems, exactly, and about teakwood (which I would not have in the house). But the rest of it ran true, even to the end, at which point the expatriate, whatever that is, went to the window and looked out on the night, and off, up toward Maine. Strange, is it not?" Gould has made 2 corrections in pencil and signed in pencil "Wallace Gould". The left edge of this letter is roughed and the letter is slightly soiled and creased with several finger smudges as if it had been handled frequently.<p>His last sad letter, nearly 400 words, speaks of deep poverty: "There must come a change before I do more work. My very soul is sick with disgust and boredom. For the first time in my life I have been powerless to act ------ to rouse myself and get out of it all. Sheer poverty has forced me to chloroform all but three of my only spiritual companions, my cats, and for them I have three bottles of chloroform ready... I read your letter with a thrill for you, however, and particularly your hopes of going westward, willy-nilly, even though with money.... Go on. Make yourself successful. Enjoy life, that is, rationally. Never tie yourself either by hope or compassion to any living being. Nobody is worth it. But do not forget to write to me. I charge you never write to me by reason of compassion or duty, however, for I much prefer that our friendship, almost impersonal as it is, and even as it may remain, must remain clean." This sad letter is not signed, although Gould has made two corrections in ink.<p>A moving correspondence, in very good condition, folded for mailing. <p>The Dictionary of Literary Biography writes of Wallace Gould that "Between 1917 and 1922 Wallace Gould published about twenty poems in some of the most celebrated little magazines of the day: the Dial, Poetry, Others, the Seven Arts, Broom, and the Little Review. He published two volumes of poetry, Children of the Sun: Rhapsodies and Poems (1917) and Aphrodite and Other Poems (1928). Poems by Gould werre included in a few anthologies, most conspicuously those in which Alfred Kreymborg had a part. Kreymborg was Gould's most faithful partisan and champion, but he was not alone in his enthusiasm for Gould's work, which was also praised by William Carlos Williams, Marsden Hartley, Paul Rosenfeld, Kenneth Rexroth, and a few casual reviewers. In Gould's correspondence there is evidence that later in his life he was at work on a poem somehow involving American history, but none of his work seems to have been published during the last twelve years of his life."<p>In an article entitled "The Poet of Maine" published in "The Little Review", Marsden Hartley proclaims "Thirty-seven years ago a tidal wave washed up on the shores of Maine a titan. It left him sitting on a rock and never returned."<p>"It was on return visits that I made the acquaintance of Wallace Gould the poet, who was to give me the pleasure of making him known to the poets Alfred Kreymborg and William Carlos Williams, who praised Gould's poetry for its solid execution and a true modernist touch, and who was a fanatical worshiper of Byron. Gould began life as a child prodigy at the piano and for some unknown reason gave up the idea of becoming a public pianist and for years afterwards played the piano in the first period of the silent pictures. Gould was physically enormous - weighing two hundred pounds which his six feet one carried with ease. He was by nature a voluptuary - oriental even in his worship of luxury and food - was an excellent cook and often cooked elaborate meals after work at night, sharing this of course with friends - the cooking itself being the chief delight. He was handsome with olive skin suffused with warm red glowing eyes, and dark hair - and was he said some sort of cousin to Holman Day who has written many local ballads ... Gould lived with and supported a foster mother and the lifelong grind at the piano earning twenty-five a week was an exhausting self-imposed duty - but he stayed until things took a turn, then left the white house with the green blinds and never returned. No one has heard of him for years though rumour has it he went South, married eventually, and scorned all chance of publicity either as a poet or as a person.... Wallace Gould was cynical for natural reasons - he had been crucified by the pressure of duty. He could not leave the woman who had rescued him from the fate of orphanage - he loved her - called her his mother all his life." [Quoted from "Somehow a Past: The Autobiography of Marsden Hartley"].<p>In a chapter of his Autobiography "The Baroness", William Carlos Williams writes "At about this time Wallace Gould arrived in New York from his Maine hide-out and almost immediately found that it would be impossible to support himself here. Some woman who admired his work had loaned Wally an apartment. When I found him he had on a black stock, a black suit with great white cuffs, and if he wasn't trembling with fright, he wasn't far from it. That day, in fact within the hour, he had been standing at the bottom of the stairs, his hand on the newel post, when his hostess had come downstairs and had pressed her breast upon the back of his hand, pinning it there, so to speak. He had been too frightened to withdraw the hand, and there she had him.... 'I'm up shit creek' ... 'I'm broke,' he said in terror. 'What am I to do?' It was around Christmas. 'Look,' I said, 'get your stuff and come out to Rutherford with me. I've got the car at the door.' He stayed with us all winter, giving little Bill piano lessons for his board, though I hadn't asked for it. But when March arrived the Indian blood in his veins-- he was quarter Abnaki Indian on his mother's side---asserted itself and he packed his kit. I gave him twenty dollars or so to start him off. He went by train to Washington, D.C., thence to start walking, which he did, to end up after a few days at Farmville, Virginia, where he spent the remainder of his life."

        My Early Life, a variant binding unknown to bibliographers

      Thornton Butterworth Limited, London 1930 - This is the first edition, first printing, of Churchill&#146;s extremely popular autobiography. This copy offers an additional enticement to collectors, being a variant binding not noted by bibliographers and only the second copy we have encountered bound thus. Various states of the first edition, first printing are known. First states were bound in both a coarse and a smooth plum colored cloth, have the title stamped on the front cover in either three or five lines, and contain a list of 11 Churchill titles in the boxed list of "Works by the same Author" on the half-title verso. Second state copies are distinguished by the addition of "THE WORLD CRISIS: 1911-1914" to the boxed list of works on the half-title verso, making 12 titles. It was presumed that all second state copies featured bindings with a five-line title on the front cover. In his excellent bibliography of Churchill's works, Ronald Cohen states: ". most, perhaps even all, copies of the second state will be found in binding cases in which the front cover is stamped in 5, rather than 3, lines." This unrecorded variant is a first printing, second state copy in the coarse cloth binding with three lines on the front cover. Condition approaches very good overall. The binding remains tight with sharp corners, vividly bright boards, and little of the customary wear. The chief detraction is both sunning and some mottling to the spine color. The contents remain respectably bright with light spotting primarily confined to prelims and page edges. My Early Life covers the years from Churchill&#146;s birth in 1874 to his first few years in Parliament. One can hardly ask for more adventurous content. These were momentous and formative years for Churchill, including his time as a war correspondent and cavalry officer in theatres as varied as Cuba, northwest India, and sub-Saharan and southern Africa. This time contained a wide range of experiences in Churchill&#146;s life. Not only was he developing as an author, publishing his first books, and making his first lecture tour of North America, but this was also the time of his capture and daring escape during the Boer War, which made him a celebrity and helped launch his political career. Churchill would take his seat in Parliament only weeks after the end of Queen Victoria's reign. My Early Life remains one of the most popular and widely read of all Churchill's books. And for good reason, as the work certainly ranks among the most charming and accessible of his many books. An original 1930 review likened it to a "beaker of Champagne." That effervescent charm endures; a more recent writer called it "a racy, humorous, self-deprecating classic of autobiography." To be sure, Churchill takes some liberties with facts and perhaps unduly lightens or over-simplifies certain events, but this is eminently forgivable and in keeping with the wit, pace, and engaging style that characterizes the book. My Early Life sold very well at the time and has seen a great many editions since, many of them collectible in their own right, but of course a premium attaches to first editions. The challenge for collectors is that the plum colored binding of this edition proved especially susceptible to fading, soiling, and wear; nearly all copies are considerably spine faded. Moreover, the contents are susceptible to heavy spotting and the binding is often cocked. This helps explain why so many first editions of this book have been torn apart and rebound.

It was Milwaukee's response to the Great Depression which hit America in 1929. At some stage over 1300 unskilled poor women produced work for the program making useful artistic items such as draperies, dolls, toys, furniture, prints, books, costumes and rugs. The project improved the quality of life of children and adults in Milwaukee by producing materials of exceptional design, outstanding quality and lasting educational value. Unfortunately the program was discontinued in 1943 mainly as a result of the economic recovery that took place in the United States. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

[7] c. di panorami ripiegati fuori testo [1] c. di schizzo topografico a colori ripiegato alla fine del volume 30 cm tela cofanetto. PIACENZA Mario. - Nacque a Pollone nei pressi di Biella il 21 aprile 1884 secondogenito di Felice (1843-1938) e di Silvia Bozzalla Pret preceduto da Guido (1881-1939) e seguito da Enzo (1892-1968). La famiglia era imparentata con i Sella dal momento che la madre era figlia di Effisia Sella sorella di Quintino Giuseppe Venanzio (padre del celebre fotografo alpinista Vittorio Sella) e Francesco. Il padre era il proprietario di una delle più antiche aziende del settore laniero del Biellese uno dei pochi distretti industriali della giovane Italia postunitaria capace di competere con l'estero. Continuando la tradizione di famiglia (il lanificio Piacenza era stato fondato nel 1733) Felice seppe ammodernare l'organizzazione del lavoro e rivolgersi a una produzione di qualità. Nell'effervescente clima culturale biellese del tempo in cui si mescolavano sfide imprenditoriali cultura positivista e lampi di attrazione romantica per l'arte si sprigionò soprattutto dopo il 1863 anno di fondazione del Club Alpino Italiano la scintilla dell'alpinismo che contagiò Guido e Mario Piacenza fin dalla giovinezza. Mario studiò dai padri rosminiani a Domodossola e successivamente si laureò in giurisprudenza all'Università di Torino. Solo dopo aver frequentato all'estero dopo la laurea le migliori scuole tecniche soprattutto in Belgio e in Germania si occupò della fabbrica paterna con il fratello Guido assai preparato nel campo tessile e supervisore della conduzione tecnica dell'azienda.Negli anni dello studio i fratelli Piacenza praticarono la marcia in montagna e l'alpinismo. Pur accomunati dalla stessa passione alpina cui unirono anche l'interesse per l'esplorazione in terre lontane oltre che per la fotografia e la cinematografia Mario e Guido differenziarono il proprio modo di salire verso le alte quote: il primo UsatoBuono Anno pubblicazione: 1930.

        Collected Poems

      New York: Random House, 1930. Limited Edition. Hardcover. This is an exceptional copy of the first, signed, and limited edition of the book that won the author his second Pulitzer Prize in 1931. Collected Poems is the first collected edition of Frost?s poems. This signed and limited edition preceded the trade edition by four weeks. The 1,000 copies of the limited edition were signed by Frost on the half-title and hand-numbered on the limitation page, this copy numbered ?801?. Unique in content, this collection based on Frost's first five books saw two poems printed for the first time (?The Last Word of a Bluebird? and ?What Fifty Said?) as well as addition of four poems previously published only in periodicals. The binding is tan heavy linen cloth with beveled edges, brown leather spine label, and gilt top edge, the contents printed on heavy, laid paper with untrimmed fore and bottom edges. The book was issued in a glassine jacket with laid paper flaps pasted to the glassine; these jackets understandably typically do not survive and, without them, the handsome linen binding proved prone to wear, soiling, and toning. This copy is a truly fine survivor. The binding is beautifully bright and clean, square and tight with sharp corners and virtually no wear, the leather spine label flawless. The contents remain bright with no previous ownership marks and no spotting and a stiff feel, as if never read. The top edge gilt remains bright, the untrimmed fore and bottom edges immaculate. The glassine wrapper is poor, having admirably protected the book beneath, but suffered in the process. There are losses to extremities and the rear cover is raggedly torn, with a significant portion detached. The glue that affixed the original laid paper flaps to the glassine has long since failed, but the flaps nonetheless remain, laid in. The original glassine and paper flaps are protected beneath a removable, clear mylar cover. Iconic American poet and four-time Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Lee Frost (1874-1963), the quintessential poetic voice of New England, was actually born in San Francisco and first published in England. When Frost was eleven, his newly widowed mother moved east to Salem, New Hampshire, to resume a teaching career. There Frost swiftly found his poetic voice, infused by New England scenes and sensibilities. Promising as both a student and writer, Frost nonetheless dropped out of both Dartmouth and Harvard, supporting himself and a young family by teaching and farming. Ironically, it was a 1912 move to England with his wife and children ? ?the place to be poor and to write poems? ? that finally catalyzed his recognition as a noteworthy American poet. The manuscript of A Boy?s Will was completed in England and accepted for publication by David Nutt in 1913. A convocation of critical recognition, introduction to other writers, and creative energy supported the English publication of Frost?s second book, North of Boston, in 1914, after which ?Frost?s reputation as a leading poet had been firmly established in England, and Henry Holt of New York had agreed to publish his books in America.? Accolades met his return to America at the end of 1914 and by 1917 a move to Amherst ?launched him on the twofold career he would lead for the rest of his life: teaching whatever ?subjects? he pleased at a congenial college? and ?barding around,? his term for ?saying? poems in a conversational performance.? (ANB) By 1924 he had won the first of his eventual four Pulitzer Prizes for poetry (1931, 1937, and 1943). Frost spent the final decade and a half of his life as ?the most highly esteemed American poet of the twentieth century? with a host of academic and civic honors to his credit. Two years before his death he became the first poet to read in the program of a U.S. Presidential inauguration (Kennedy, January 1961). Bibliographic reference: Crane A14

        Correspondence between George Sylvester Viereck and Bainbridge Colby (1930-1932).

      - 9 typed and signed letters with printed letterhead by Viereck: 8 to Colby and one to publisher Mitchell Kennerley. Plus a carbon copy of another letter to Colby in triple, a carbon duplicate of a letter from Colby to Viereck (June 24, 1931), also in triple, and a single carbon duplicate of a letter from Colby to Viereck (July 14, 1931). Most of the letters have been rust stained at the top by paperclips (partly still present). The letters have been folded, but the carbons haven't; otherwise in very good condition. Accompanying this ensemble are an article 'Did President Wilson Pledge Us to War Before He Was Re-Elected?' by G.S. Viereck (p. 54-62 in Liberty, March 19, 1932 (grey-stained) and a two-color 4-page publisher's prospect of Viereck's book of interviews Glimpses of the Great (1930).* Concerning a series of articles by Viereck about President Woodrow Wilson and his friendship with Colonel E.M. House in the course of study for his book The Strangest Friendship in History: Woodrow Wilson and Colonel House (1932). The first letter by Viereck, dating from June 22, 1931, puts three questions to Colby. There are 3 carbon copies of a retyped version of the letter (probably by Colby or his secretary (for there's a mistake in Viereck's printed address), and 3 carbon copies of Colby's 3-page answer. The other 7 letters, dating from June 27, 1931 to April 22, 1932, are about exchanging books and articles concerning Wilson, House and the Great War: "If a President can morally bind the United States to a course of action involving war we are faced b a serious invasion of the treaty-making powers of the Senate and the war-making powers of Congress, for which our children may have to pay with our blood." One gets the impression that the letters after July 14, 1931, went unanswered. The letter to Kennerley (1930) also concerns Colby, House and Wilson.George Sylvester Viereck (1884-1962) was a German born American sensation journalist, decadentistic novelist and poet, a Nazi sympathizer in the 30s and 40s, imprisoned 1942-1947 for his failure to register as a Nazi agent.
