        A Map of Berkeley, Oakland, & Alameda. Pictorial envelope title:This is a Section of the Map of Alameda County showing Some of the Early Histories of Oakland, Berkeley, Alameda and Environs with Special References to the Flora & Fauna of this most colorfu

      The Sather Gate Book Shop. Berkeley, CA. No date. Ca. 1930? - Color pictographic / pictorial map poster, 34 1/2 by 42 3/4 inches folding, professionally mounted on linen. Infill painting of little loss at fold intersections, infill of pinhole at each corner, only visible on the closest of inspections. Bright and clean. Together with the COLOR PICTORIAL ENVELOPE into which the poster was originally folded (tears and little paper loss to edges). Fabulous Art Deco style map by Michael Baltekal Goodman, notable for its brilliant color and striking design. The minimalist design of the street layout at the centre of the map is in stark contrast to the blue pattern of the sea at lower left and the rich greens, reds and oranges of the inland area at upper right. The names of several of the main streets are featured in scrolls, also historical events and important places such as Oakland Municipal Airport. Many buildings are featured in elevations; meanwhile vessels, ancient and contemporary, sail the harbour. Wind cherubs at the corners hark back to ancient maps as does the mythical sea creature at lower right. In the elaborate border are vignette images of historial events. The map was produced in collaboration with Eugene (Eugen) Neuhaus, the California painter and teacher. At the centre of the upper border a quotation proclaims the glory of San Francisco in the westward push of the nation: the best is last; it seems likely that the artist mapmaker had the intention of making this map of San Francisco the most glorious in scale and color of the several maps of American cities that had been published in the late 1920s under the influence of MacDonald Gill's Wonderground map.

Nicoll lived for 18 years in Egypt and made an unrivalled collection of Egyptian birds, now in the Museum of the Giz Zoological Gardens. He intended to issue a work that was to replace Shelley's 'A Handbook to the Birds of Egypt', 1872, which was no longer up to date. The author was approached by Nicoll's widow in 1926, who asked him to complete the work which was then about two thirds completed. The project was sponsored by the Egyptian government and published under their authority. The result is an invaluable and important reference source on this subject.

        Poems of … edited with notes by Robert Bridges … With an appendix of Additional Poems and a critical Introduction by Charles Williams

      London: Oxford University Press, Humphrey Milford, 1930. Second edition, with additional poems. No. 119 of 250 copies printed on hand made paper. [xx], 159 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Quarter vellum and cloth. Spine a bit dull, minor traces of rubbing. Very good. Second edition, with additional poems. No. 119 of 250 copies printed on hand made paper. [xx], 159 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. One of the first truly modern poets, Gerard Manley Hopkins resisted the urge to publish his poems during his lifetime. Only after Hopkins' death in 1889 did Poet Laureate and lifelong friend Robert Bridges begin slowly to publish the poems, eventually editing the first collected edition (1918). Few 20th-century poets do not owe a debt to Hopkins; his innovations echo through the works of Eliot, Joyce, e.e. cummings, and many others. With an appendix of 16 poems that did not appear in the first edition-including Hopkins' earliest surviving poem, "The Escorial." The introduction by novelist and theologian Charles Williams is also new to this edition. Dunne, Gerard Manley Hopkins: A Comprehensive Bibliography, A73

        THE KING'S MINION [complete in: The American Magazine]

      1930 - [complete in 7 magazine issues] A Novel. Illustrated by F.R. Gruger. In: The American Magazine. Springfield Ohio: The Crowell Publishing Company, April-October 1930 [together, seven issues]. Original color pictorial wrappers. First American Appearance of this historical romance, complete in these seven consecutive issues of The American Magazine, where the novel is illustrated by F.R. Gruger -- some full-page, some even double-page. It was in 1930 that the tale was also published in book form -- by Houghton Mifflin in the US and by Hutchinson (as THE MINION) in the UK.~Condition is remarkably very good-plus (minor edge-wear, especially at the ends of the spines). The lower corner of all seven front covers bears the original mailing label -- which, amazingly, went to six different people! -- two in Illinois, plus one each in Maine, Massachusetts, North Dakota and Wisconsin. Quite a survival. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      - DISNEY,WALT. MICKEY MOUSE BOOK / HELLO EVERYBODY. NY: Bibo and Lang 1930, copyright Walter E. Disney. 4to (9 x 12"), green pictorial wraps, 15p., a fine intact copy with no soil or wear. This is the true first Mickey Mouse book (one of the early issues with bottom panel of rear cover blank and with the word "kill" retained in the song). Published in order to raise money for his new film studio, this includes the Story of Mickey Mouse, Mickey Mouse Game, Mickey Mouse March and a Mickey Mouse Song entitled "Mickey Mouse ('You Cute Little Feller') with accompanying arrangement for the ukelele. Illustrated by the Disney Studios with full page and partial page drawings in black, green and white. The story was written by Bobette Bibo, the 11 year old daughter of one of the publishers. Due to its fragile nature, few copies of quality exist today. See Munsey: Disneyana (p.163, 166) who notes "The book was a small venture, and a relatively small number was produced. Today, the few that survive complete with the game board are eagerly sought by collectors." A beautiful copy. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      um 1930. - Idealisiertes Vollportrait einer blonden jungen Winzerin auf einer Weinbergstreppe, auf eine Harke gestützt und am Betrachter vorbei in die Ferne blickend. Rechts von ihr fällt der Blick des Betrachters auf die steilen fränkischen Weinberge mit einem Dorf im Hintergrund. Öl a. Leinwand von Georg Ehmig, re. u. sign., um 1930. 100,5 x 50,5 cm. - Neu gerahmt. Rahmung im Preis inbegriffen. Farbfrisch. - - Georg Ehmig: Hamburg Altona 27.3.1892 - 21.5.1969 Würzburg. Ehmig, der in Schweinfurt eine Ausbildung zum technischen Zeichner bei Fichtel & Sachs absolvierte und in Berlin an der Kunsthochschule studierte, war bereits Zeit seines Lebens mit seinen Werken deutschlandweit in Museen und Sammlungen vertreten. Die Tatsache, dass er in der NS-Zeit ein angesehner und geförderter Künstler war, lässt sein Werk durchaus diskutabel erscheinen. Seine Malerei erfüllte zahlreiche Vorstellungen der NS-Granden. - Das vorliegende Bild ist jedoch allein wegen seines seltenen Motives von historischer Bedeutung.
