      S. e, 1930. Disegno a china originale cm 31 x 35,5, su carta da lucido. Firma nella parte inferiore a destra. Piccole riparazioni professionali e risarcimento marginale. Disegno del periodo post futurista meccanica e costruttivista di Vinicio Paladini.

Nel 1926 lancia il 'Volantino Immaginista'. Nel 1928 partecipa alla I esposizione italiana di architettura razionale presentando un lavoro tra Le Courbisier e Loos, nel 1930 si laurea in architettura. In seguito si dedico' anche alla scenografia. Tra il 1938 e il 1953 si trasferisce a New York lavorando come architetto. Tornato in Italia continuo' la sua attivita' di architetto, pur partecipando ancora a mostre, in particolare legate al revival futurista. ITA

        BANALITÉ.; ILLUSTRÉ DE RÉOGRAMMES ET RECHERCHES D'OBJECTS DE LORIS ET PARRY

      Éditions de la Nouvelle Revue Française, Paris 1930 - Small folio, 80 pp. of poems and prose by Fargue, 16 photogravures. Very faint occasional foxing on the blank margins, else a fine copy. Housed in a custom-made cloth clamshell box with paper labels on front and spine. Roger Parry (1905-1977) was inspired to illustrate, a surrealist work by André Breton's NADJA. He selected Fargue's book BANALITÉS (1922) for this project. Julien Levy, the American dealer (specializing in surrealism), became acquainted with Parry's photography through his appearance in PHOTOGRAPHIE and this work. Though the title page states that the illustrations are by Loris and Parry, in PHOTOGRAPHS FROM THE JULIEN LEVY COLLECTION, David Travis (Art Institute of Chicago, 1976, p. 86) states, "it is assumed that these photographs are by Roger Parry, since Levy acquired them from him." Of the total edition, 332 copies were printed on Hollande Pannekoek, and 35 copies on Japon Imperial. This is one of 332 copies. One of the major photographic works in the surrealist canon.

        Bruyère - fashion design 1930s.

      "Diner au cabaret"'Modetekening van de collectie van Marie-Louise Bruyère. Medio jaren 1930. Gouache op grijs papier.Mme. Bruyère (1884-?) was geboren op het Franse platteland, maar haar ambitieuze ouders verhuisden naar de groeiende voorsteden van Parijs, waar het hen voor de wind ging. Ze woonden in het chique Saint Gratien, waar ook Princesse Mathilde (het nichtje van Napoleon I) woonde. Ze volgde haar opleiding bij Cheruit en vervolgens bij Lanvin. In 1928 opende ze haar eigen "Bruyère Couture"', en met haar collectie van begin 1930 plaatste ze zich tussen de toonaangevende jonge ontwerpers van haar tijd zoals Schiaparelli, Alix, Rochas en Mainbocher. Haar faam groeide internationaal, waardoor ze in 1937 een grand salon aan de Place Vendôme kon openen. Haar kleding was chique, zeer draagbaar en bovenal modieus, opvallend door subtiele en ongewone design elementen. Met twee shows per jaar van elk 200 modellen, had ze een enorme productie en had in 1947 328 medewerkers. Haar bedrijf groeide tot midden jaren 1950. Als men dan overstapt naar prêt-a-porter gaat het na een paar jaar ten onder.Prijs: € 750,- (incl. lijst).

        Parfums Lucien Lelong

      Paris: Agence Générale de Publicité et de Propagande Printer: E. Desfosses.. Wraps. Brochure. Near Fine. N.d., circa 1930. 8vo. 24.5 by 18.5 cm. Unpaginated, 31 leaves, all of a weighty card stock, or over 60 pages, about half with color plates (we count 31, but one can quibble about whether one or two of them so qualify). Eleven of these are non-product illustrations -- attempts to capture concepts or abstractions -- the balance being exquisite depictions of the company's fine perfume bottles. The catalogue exudes an unalloyed dreamy luxury in every respects, as befits high-end perfume marketing. Cassandre, a name adopted by the Ukrainian-born Adolphe Jean-Marie Mouron (1901-1968) -- his parents were French -- was a highly celebrated commercial artist, theatrical designer, magazine illustrator and poster artist. He worked heavily with the prestige printer, Draeger, as well as the couturier Lucien Lelong and others. In time he was awarded the French Legion of Honor. Lelong was a top Parisian couturier from the twenties til his retirement in the late forties. He was himself not a designer but rather relied on a stable of designers, and among his proteges was Christian Dior. As this catalogue also shows, dress designers were branching out into fragrances for a long time; this catalogue predates the creation of Chanel No. 5 by a few years. Light wear to the wraps -- a minor closed tear along the upper joint, and some minor wrinkling or creasing to the cover paper. Otherwise, clean and fresh.

        1921 to 1934 Set of Wisdens Rebound with Covers,

      Hi, This lot is a set of 14 rebound Wisdens all of them are rebound with covers. This Wisden set is in Good to Very Good condition. The boards are a bit of a mix but I have tried to make them as similar as possible so all are a reddish brown, all the books are in decent shape and a good but not mint set. Some notes are that the 1930 has a mark to the front cover, 1927 has a LCCC stamp to the bottom of the front cover, 1926 is a bit dark, 1923 a bit tatty and the 1925 has a cup mark to the cover. The 1932 may have a facsimile front cover , it feels facsimile but odd to see that in a rebind. They are all excellent internally all with photoplates, a great value for money set. 7/10s on average. Subject to availability I can swap any book inside this run or extend or slightly reduce the run for a different cost, please enquire for details.

Housed together in a custom brown linen chemise and brown quarter morocco and cloth slipcase. Occasional minor soiling or creasing, some copies fine; overall, very good. WILLIAMS, E. Harcourt. The Tailor of Gloucester: A play from the story by Beatrix Potter. London: Frederick Warne & Co., [1930] & [c. 1933]. 3 works, octavo. Original buff wrappers, titles and vignette to covers in green. First edition: A fine copy. Later issues: wrappers a little creased, nicked and spotted. One copy of the first edition (no reference to Ginger & Pickles or Mr Samuel Whiskers), and two later issues (with the plays referenced). In October 1923 Potter received a rough draft of Williams's adaptation, requesting her permission to publish it and use the play for the children's performances he and his wife gave each Christmas. Potter made a couple of alterations, notably to the name Lady Golightly he wanted to give to one of the mice, and criticised some of the wording, and wrote severely to her publishers: "I care far more for the Tailor than for Peter... If they print a book of words I must be allowed to revise it." The play was published in 1930. Later, in response to Warne's request for a drawing room version, she replied "between ourselves the present version is so far mine (by quotation and corrections) that I could not write a different version if I tried."

        DRIFT (Fine Inscribed Copy of the Author's First Book in DJ)

      London: Eric Partridge, 1930. Hanley, James. DRIFT. London: Eric Partridge, 1930. First Edition. Author's first book, one of only 500 copies printed. A bright Near Fine copy, tiny bit sunned at one tip, in a Near Fine original priced dust jacket (tiny chips to spine corners, spine a little darkened). PRESENTATION COPY and exceeding rare as such. On the half-title, Hanley has inscribed "With the Author's compliments/ James Hanley." Although born in Liverpool, he was of Irish descent and early critics saw much similarity between his "voice" and that of James Joyce. Hanley ran away to sea at 17, fought in WW1 with the Canadian Army, then decided on a career as a writer. DRIFT was rejected by nearly 40 publishing houses before finding a home but once published it was well received enough to launch his long and prolific life as a novelist, short story writer and playwright. James Hanley (1897-1985), died a "writer's writer" -- much admired but never achieving the fame he is said to have deserved. He was praised by William Faulkner, C. P. Snow, E. M. Forster, and more recently Anne Tyler, the list of his admirers is long. The first edition of DRIFT is rarely found in original dust jacket; further, this is the only inscribed copy of the first edition of which we are currently aware. . Signed by Author. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Near Fine.

      Wildpark-Potsdam, Akademische Verlagsgesellschaft Athenaion mbH, 1930 - Vollständige Ausgabe in elegantem, aufwendig hergestellten Handeinband der Zeit: echter Halbfranzband (Halbleder / HLdr) gr.8vo im Format 20 x 25,4 cm mit braunem Lederrücken, goldgeprägtem Lederkopfband, Rückentitel in Goldprägung, geheftet auf fünf erhabene Doppelbünde, Handmarmor-Bezug der Deckel, blindgeprägte Liniendekoration des Einbandleders, Lederecken und Kopfgoldschnitt. 403 Seiten auf Kunstdruckpapier, mit 283 Textabbildungen, 19 ganzseitigen Tafelabbildungen (teilweise farbig), mehreren ausklappbaren Faksimile-Beigaben sowie Sachverzeichnis. - Aus dem Inhalt: Zur Einführung - Die Massenseele - Masse und Meinung - Die Technik der Meinungsbeeinflussung - Der Alte Orient - Griechen und Römer - Die ersten christlichen Jahrhunderte - Im sogenannten Mittelalter des Abendlandes - Der Aufstieg der modernen Publizistik - Briefwesen. Die Nachricht - Die Anfänge der Zeitung - Flugblatt und Zeitung in ihrem Verhältnis zur öffentlichen Meinung. Der Hexenwahn - Die Anfänge der Zeitschrift - Die Entwicklung des Begriffs "Öffentliche Meinung" - Die Geburt der modernen politischen Presse - Neue Ideen und alte Gewalten - Der Siegeszug der Meinungsfreiheit - Der Staatsmann und die Zeitung (Zwei Typen: Bismarck und Napoleon III.) - Die moderne Presse und die öffentliche Meinung - Die neueste Zeit - Literaturverzeichnis - Register. - Der Verfasser Dr.Wilhelm Bauer war seit 1917 außerordentlicher, seit 1930 ordentlicher Professor für Allgemeine Neuere Geschichte und gehörte seit 1931 der Wiener Akademie der Wissenschaften an. Zu seinen Forschungsschwerpunkten zählten u.a. Kulturgeschichte und die Entwicklung der Publizistik. Von 1920-45 war er Schriftleiter Redakteur der `Mitteilungen des Instituts für österreichische Geschichtsforschung`. - "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Zum Kapital wird kein schlappes maschinengewebtes Bändchen verwendet, sondern das Kapital wird von Hand mit dem Buchblock umstochen, gibt dadurch dem Rücken einen festen Abschluß und bietet zugleich dem späteren Ledereinschlag ("Häubchen") die Unterlage. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können." Aus einem alten Prospekt von Richard Hönn, ehemals Handbinderei des Verlages Albert Langen, Werkstatt für feine Buchbinder- und Lederarbeiten in München, Dienerstrasse 14. - Luxuseinband, erste Auflage, EA, Erstausgabe in sehr guter Erhaltung, mit blindgegeprägtem Stempel auf dem hinteren Deckelinnenseite "Buc [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
