        The Theory of Interest; as determined by Impatience to spend income and Opportunity to invest it.

      New York: The Macmillan Company,, 1930. Octavo. Original dark blue fine-ribbed cloth, spine lettered in gilt and with single gilt rules at head and tail, front cover blocked in blind.

First edition, first printing, of Fisher's Theory of Interest, a revised version of his earlier book The Rate of Interest (1907). Dedicated to John Rae and Böhm-Bawerk, it is a further development of their ideas: "its greatness as a book lies wholly in its outstanding pedagogic qualities... [which] amounted to the demonstration that the real rate of interest is determined by both demand and supply, by the demand for production and consumption loans on the one hand and the supply of savings on the other" (Blaug, Great Economists before Keynes, p. 79).

There are also small portraits of the seniors in her class pasted next to a card with their names. An interesting and complete look at a California high school girl's education in the late 1920s.

        The Bridge A Poem.

      Paris: The Black Sun Press, 1930 - Tall quarto. Original white wrapper, titles to spine and front wrapper in red and black. With the original glassine jacket. Housed in the publisher's silver card slipcase. A superb copy in the somewhat worn tissue and original silver-covered card slipcase that has had the lower panel and a small portion of the top panel renewed. First edition, first impression, one of 200 copies on Holland Paper from a total limited edition of 284 copies. The Bridge was Crane's only attempt at a long poem, inspired by his view of the Brooklyn Bridge from his apartment in Columbia Heights, and includes three plates from photographs of the bridge by his friend Walker Evans. Harold Bloom praised the poem for "its astonishing transformation of the sublime ode into an American epic, uneven certainly but beyond The Waste Land in aspiration and accomplishment" (Complete Poems of Hart Crane, Liveright, 2000). This shimmering first appearance was one of several exquisitely produced books put out by the Black Sun Press, founded by the wild and wealthy expatriate couple Harry and Caresse Crosby. Harry Crosby (1898–1929) was heir to one of Boston's wealthiest banking families, but after serving as an ambulance driver during the First World War he met and fell in love with a married lady, Mary Peabody (née Jacob) – they fled to Paris, married, and she changed her name to Caresse. Harry and Caresse embedded themselves in the avant-garde cultural scene, befriending the likes of Dalí, Hemingway and Cartier-Bresson, founded the Black Sun Press which helped to publish the early works of Joyce, Eliot, Pound and Hart Crane, and lived a life of utter dissolution off Harry's inheritance – which, when it ran out, had to be supplemented by telegrams to his banker father such as the infamous, "PLEASE SELL $10,000 WORTH OF STOCK. WE HAVE DECIDED TO LIVE A MAD AND EXTRAVAGANT LIFE" (to which the father, reluctantly but nonetheless amazingly, assented). Following Crosby's tragic death in 1929 (he was found shot dead in the same bed as Josephine, "The Fire Princess", one of his many lovers), the Black Sun Press continued issuing books in Paris and New York under the directorship of Caresse, who survived until 1970.

        A Draft of XXX Cantos.

      Paris: Hours Press, 1930 - Octavo. Original buff linen, titles to front board and spine in red, edges untrimmed. With a plain glassine wrapper (spine defective). Faint spotting to untrimmed edges, else a fine copy. Initials and vignette by Dorothy Shakespear. First edition, limited issue, inscribed by the author and signed with his initials on the front free endpaper to "Marcella, EZ". Number 138 of 200 copies on japon (Canson-Mongolfier Soleil velin MRV paper), from an edition of 212 (for details of the whole edition, see previous item). Marcella Spann Booth (b. 1932) was introduced to Pound's poetry at graduate school in her native Texas. While living in New York, she wrote to Pound at St Elizabeth's Hospital and requested to meet him while on a stopover in Washington DC, which began a lengthy correspondence and friendship. They collaborated on a poetry anthology (inevitably "Spannthology"), later published as Confucius to Cummings: An Anthology of Poetry (New Directions, 1964). During her frequent visits to St Elizabeth's Hospital between 1957 and 1958, Spann often shared her students' work with Pound who provided comments and advice for her teaching. After Pound's release from St Elizabeth's Hospital in 1958, Spann accompanied him and his wife, Dorothy, to Italy where she acted as Pound's secretary and continued work on the "Spannthology". Pound and Spann continued to correspond briefly after she returned to Texas in October 1959. Her extensive collection of manuscripts and correspondence with Pound is now in the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center, Texas. Gallup A31a. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Principles of Clothing Selection [ Early 1930s College Course Project from Columbia University Teachers College Student ]

      Very Good. Ephemera. Over 80 loose sheets of manuscript entries illustrating the principles of women's clothing selection using magazine illustrations, cloth swatches, and hand-drawn color sketches. The project appears to be based on the textbooks Principles of Clothing Selection (1930) and Clothing for Women (1929). Home economics and fashion appeared in college curricula after World War I when more women moved into the workforce in professional roles and wardrobe needs changed. The sheets are contained in a worn envelope marked with the name of Hazel Stine, who received a B. S. In Education and Practical Arts from Columbia in 1933. Her observations on style show her preferences (or those of her professors) : "Trim and in quite good taste are the clothes worn by the conservative type." Ms. Stine's project also contains a candid self-assessment: "Weight--174 (much over-weight) ," a sketch of her body from head to toe, a listing of her "Bad Points", and a "Score Card for Personal Appearance." Her color drawings illustrating outfits she would choose for herself appear on two sheets. She received an A- for her effort. ; 14 1/2" x 9" .
