        Photo Album]: Family Album including Photographs of a Free French Children's Nursery in England

      England 1930 - Oblong quarto. Measuring 9.5" x 12.5". String-tied cardboard photo album. A collection of 170 sepia toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs, measuring between 1.5" x 1.5" and 6" x 8", affixed to stiff gray paper with some captions. The photographs are near fine with occasional creasing in a very good photo album with edgewear and lacking the cloth over the boards. A photo album assembled by Clara R. Wells, an English nurse, between the mid-1930s until 1945. The beginning of the album is of Wells's home life living near Ascot, England, including her two infant children and various get-togethers, parties, and weddings with friends and family throughout the 1930s. The last few pages begin in the early 1940s, and continue well into World War II. During this time Wells was a nurse working at the Free French Nursery in Ascot, roughly 25 photographs show the nursery. Wells was part of the AVF, (Amis des Volontaires Francais -- Friends of the French Volunteers), which was established after the French defeat and occupation by Germany in 1940. According to Nicholas Atkin, "the AVF aimed to establish a link between organizations and individuals who wished to extend moral and material aid to the French Volunteers and also assisted French Forces fighting for the Allied cause. The latter would include setting up of canteens, hostel facilities and clubs for French troops and French civilian evacuees in Britain." For her part Wells volunteered as a nurse for the children of the French Volunteers who were sent to England. She cared for the children, threw them parties, and attempted to keep their spirits up and them safe until their parents could return. Among the images captured is a young nurse with a group of children and a pony in and around the grounds of the hospital, as well as a group photo from story time and another of children, a clown, and some soldiers from a "Canadian party." Also included are magazine clippings about the nursery, Wells's employment registration form, her nursing diploma, a letter from the National Society of Children's Nurseries, and two letters from a head nurse at another AVF operation asking her to come back because Wells is more experienced than the nurses currently on duty. In the letter dated November 3, 1943 she writes: "I simply must have a night nurse; the staff here is too inexperienced to be taking night duty in turn. we are having six babies in Christmas time. I would love to have you back." A magazine clipping, with pictures taken from Wells's photography, is captioned, "young sons and daughters of parents serving in the French forces at the French war-time nursery in the home countries." Due to internal conflicts between the British and the French the AVF dissolved shortly before the war's end.A modest but interesting collection from a little-know branch of World War II volunteer service that is often overlooked.

        Photographs]: New Jersey Infrastructure and Transportation Reference Photos

      New Jersey 1930 - A collection of 217 photographs from PSEG (Public Service Enterprise Group) printed in the 1930s measuring between 5" x 7" to 8" x 10", most with captions. All photos about near fine with some original envelopes and negatives. PSEG was formed in 1903 after the merger of numerous smaller energy companies and firms throughout New Jersey. These prints, created in the 1930s, are taken from a variety of sources from the early days of the company and its sister companies starting in the late-1800s to promote the new face of the New Jersey power company. They show towns and companies throughout New Jersey, some after natural disasters, roads, buildings, public transportation, and company baseball games. Companies shown are the Newark Gaslight Company founded in 1845, United Electric Company of New Jersey, and Citizens Gaslight Company founded in 1870, these and numerous other branches of small New Jersey area power companies combined to form what is now PSEG. One photo of a group of men taking the field in baseball uniforms is captioned, "first field day meet of the P.S. Railway May 20, 1913 - Hilton Oval." Another photos shows downed power lines and reads, "Elizabeth - E. Grand St. and Jefferson Ave. Pole line result of storm March 1, 1914." The same storm is captured in a photo from Plainfield showing "P.S.E. wires in good shape," while "Western Union Line down." A photo depicting a horse drawn car that reads "Belleville & Cemetery" on the side is captioned, "driver - Mr. James J. Noonan 1884 - Jimie had more claim to fame than merely as chauffeur of the deluxe equipage he was the backstop for the old Woodstock's baseball team and a hero to all the kids of the Woodside section and Belleville." An extensive collection of photographs depicting the first few decades of the 20th Century in New Jersey and the early days of PSEG.

        Die Weltmeisterschaftsbälle - Alle original Fußbälle von 1930 bis 2010 - Kunstedition mit Buch.

      - Nie zuvor wurden die originalen Weltmeisterschaftsbälle komplett fotografiert, nie zuvor mit fotoästhetischer Perfektion und Liebe porträtiert. Die Künstler und Autoren haben dazu fast ein dutzend Länder bereist, über drei Jahre hinweg recherchiert, ein Jahr geplant, entworfen und produziert und dieses wunderbare, limitierte Werk herausgebracht. Die Kunst-Edition besteht aus 7 hochwertigen Pigmentabzügen der Weltmeisterschaftsbälle von 1930, 1954, 1966, 1974, 1986, 1998 und 2006 im Format 33 cm mal 33 cm, auf Hahnemühle Fine Art Papier 285 gr, in Museumsqualität angefertigt. Das heißt, sie sind besonders lange haltbar und die Oberfläche edel. Die Pigmentabzüge sind alle vom Fotografen Jens Heilmann handsigniert. Das Buch wurde auf einem besonders veredelten Naturpapier im hochwertigen Offsetdruck gedruckt, dann mit großem Aufwand zu einer sogenannten Schweizer Broschur verarbeitet (fadengenäht und verleimt, mit offenem Rücken), weil sich diese Form des Buches leicht blättern lässt. Die Naht darf gern an Ballnähte erinnern. Der Buchdeckel nimmt das Material der Schachtel noch einmal auf. Die Fotografie der Bälle ist aufwändig, wirkt aber schlicht und unspektakulär. Die individuelle Geschichte der Bälle, ihr oftmaliger Wechsel von einem Besitzer zum anderen, ihre technischen Besonderheiten wurden mit größtmöglicher Detailtreue recherchiert und aufgeschrieben. Materialwahl und Verarbeitung, Form, Grafik. Texte und Fotografie sollten eine Einheit bilden und zur Ausstrahlung der Bälle passen. Diese haben mit der Zeit eine schöne und schlichte Patina erhalten. Ähnlich verhält es sich mit diesem Buch. Der Einband ist empfindlich und es wird ein vorsichtiger Umgang empfohlen, insbesondere, wenn das Buch weiterverschenkt werden soll. Zu diesem Zweck sind Baumwollhandschuhe beigelegt. Die Bücher haben einen Umfang von 60 Seiten und 33x33 cm und sind handnummeriert. Die Schachtel ist eine hochwertige Buchbindearbeit aus Karton und Holz. Das Obermaterial ist gesiebdruckt und erinnert an die Oberfläche eines Balles. Glatt und trotzdem griffig, edel, kühl, schön in der Hand zu halten. DEUTSCHE AUSGABE. Zustand: A 3500 gr [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

      Philadelphia: David McKay Company,, [1930]. Small octavo. Original yellow cloth-backed black boards, spine lettered black, front board lettered gilt and decorated with a martini glass in gilt, yellow endpapers, top edge yellow. With the dust jacket. Spine gently rolled, faint finger-marking to front free endpaper. An excellent copy in a lightly edge-chipped, scuffed and spotted jacket. First edition, first printing of this book, uncommon in the jacket, of cocktail recipes from the exclusive London club, Ciro's. It opened on Orange Street as a private club in 1915, and was renowned as one of the first London venues to host an all-black band. This very attractive little book features an early appearance of the Pegu Club cocktail, as well as the contested White Lady - the creation of which is claimed by two Harrys: Harry Craddock of The Savoy, and Harry MacElhone (later of Harry's New York Bar fame) during his stint at Ciro's in London in 1919. The precise identity of the bartender "Jimmy" remains unknown, though it is very possible that he is Jimmy Charters, bartender of the Dingo Bar in Paris and Ciro's in Monte Carlo. All the recipes are easily replicated without special equipment, so that (somewhat questionably) "even a child of five may prepare his (or her) favourite beverage without the necessity of running to ask daddy: 'Please, what is a jigger?'

        Die Rotte (Roman; ein männlich rauhes Buch) 1. dt. Ausgabe

      Gießen, Kindt & Bucher 1930 - 206 S. übs. Hans Dietrich Disselhoff 8° Orig.pappband, Orig.Umschlag, gering staubig, leichte Gebr.spuren, Vorsatz Fingerfleck, sonst gutes Ex., ÄUßERST SELTEN Mariano Azuela (* 1. Januar 1873 in Lagos de Moreno, Jalisco; gest. 1. März 1952 in Mexiko-Stadt) war ein mexikanischer Arzt und Schriftsteller. Azuela studierte Medizin an der Universidad de Guadalajara; nach erfolgreichem Abschluss wurde er 1899 als Arzt zugelassen. Politisch interessiert nahm er an der Revolution teil und kämpfte unter Führung von Francisco Madero gegen Porfirio Díaz. Für einige Zeit leitete Azuela dabei auch die Verwaltung seiner Heimat Lagos de Moreno. Nach der Ermordung Maderos legte Azuela 1913 alle seine Ämter nieder und schloss sich Pancho Villa an. 1915 flüchtete er nach El Paso (Texas) und arbeitete dort u.a. als Journalist. Zwei Jahre später kehrte er mit seiner Familie in die Hauptstadt seines Landes zurück und arbeitete dort dann zeit seines Lebens als Arzt. Azuelas großes umfassendes Thema ist die mexikanische Revolution. Sein bei weitem berühmtester Roman "Los de abajo" (dt. Die Rotte) entstand 1915 als Fortsetzungsroman für das Feuilleton der in El Paso erscheinenden, spanischsprachigen Zeitung El Paso del Norte. Im Folgejahr wurde er auch in Buchform publiziert. Bereits kurz nach Erscheinen wurde er vielfach übersetzt und eine bemerkenswerte Verfilmung von Regisseur Chano Urueta war unter demselben Titel ab 1. Juni 1940 in den Kinos zu sehen. Bei Los de abajo verzichtet Azuela auf historische Genauigkeit. Vielmehr besticht sein Werk durch schnellen Szenenwechsel und lebendige Bilder, mit denen er ein beeindruckendes Bild der revoltierenden Horden zeichnet. Dieser Roman gilt bis heute als bedeutendster der weit über 200 Revolutionsromane. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      [1920 through 1956]. Circa [1930]. [1930] - - This small archive and correspondence begins with a retained copy of a typed letter from the American lecture manager James "Bim" Pond to his British colleague Gerald Christy of the Gerald Christy Lecture Agency dated May 4th, 1920 admiring Captain Knight's circulars and requesting that Christy send him "fifty or a hundred" of his booklets as he believes he can secure bookings for Captain "Chas" Knight as soon as October. The retained copy of a second letter to Christy, this one dated August 20th, 1920, is in response to Christy's telegram requesting Pond let him know the "fixed" dates for Knight's lectures. The brief telegram is included. Pond replies that he has not yet set dates since it is hard to do so without "proper advertising equipment". He goes on "I must also confess that I have really little heart for working on these unknown English lecturers when you are so little willing to return the effort and put a little energy on a man such as Vachel Lindsay." In an Autograph Letter Signed by "Chas" Knight, dated January 25, 1926 and penned on a 6-1/2 inch high by 5 inch wide sheet of creamy white paper with an attached blank leaf, the naturalist & falconer invites Pond to come and hear him lecture in New York. Signed "Chas. R. Knight". By September 24, 1928, Pond has signed a contract with Franklin Fisher of the National Geographic Society for a lecture by Knight. The partially printed document on a 10-7/8 inch high by 8-1/4 inch wide sheet is signed by Pond and Fisher. Franklin Fisher was Director of Illustrations at the National Geographic Magazine. A retained copy of a typed letter by Pond, dated February 4, 1931, addressed to Captain Knight hints at a misunderstanding which has resulted in a rift between the two men. "I have always been terribly sorry that we misunderstood each other." Apparently Knight had gone on to engage the services of one of Pond's competitors as Pond continues "I have said nothing to you of leaving Miss Smith and returning to me as I have not wanted to do anything to hinder her. However, from what I hear your business is not coming along as it should and I am wondering if you would like to come back. If so, the door is wide open." On October 11th, 1932, Knight writes an exceedingly friendly typed letter to Pond. In this two-and-a-quarter page letter, Knight informs Pond that he'll be over again in January and "will take the liberty of coming to look you up." He writes of his passion "We've had a great Falconry Season, the best show we've had. My Falcons killed just on 60 Crows and Rooks, and my Gos 114 head of game since the middle of August." He playfully closes by saying that "Ramshaw is in the pink, like wise deep in the moult. He sends his love to his Uncle Bim, and to the charming ladies of the staff." Signed "Chas". In a 3-page Autograph Letter, dated February 22, 1933 on three sheets of 9-1/2 inch high by 6 inch wide Northern Hotel (Billings, Montana) stationery, Knight writes of his "new film" which he is to show at the Harvard Club in New York City in March and hopes that Pond can be there: "I think I can promise you some refreshment". He closes with news of his eagle Mister Ramshaw "The bloody old Eagle is still going strong. Did ya hear how he 'foiled burglars' at William Huff's house??" Signed "Chas". In a friendly, though sad typed letter signed on 9-1/2 inch high by 7-3/4 inch wide light blue air mail paper, dated January 6th, 1956, Knight informs Pond that "So far I have not had any nibbles regarding a return tour." Apparently he'd had a falling out with a promoter named "Mac" and goes on to say "The few dates Mac had obtained for this season have had to be abandoned - as you say there is no telling what he may spread about me. I think the true situation is fairly well known." He closes with "I feel much depressed, Bim. I wonder what the future has in store for me!" Signed "Chas". Shortly thereafter, on July 3rd, 1956, in a typed letter signed Knight writes "I am really one of t [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Exceptional Photograph Album Documenting the Activities of a Hunting & Fishing Club (probably the Chapleau Fish and Game Club)

      Gaspe Peninsula, Quebec, 1930. Photograph Album. Very Good. 1930s. The album is 11" x 15" and contains over 280 black and white photographs ranging in size from 2.5" x 3.5" to 8.5" x 14". Most are 3.5" x 5.5" and 22 are 3.5" x 14" panoramas. The photos are primarily attached using corner mounts, several are captioned. The album and photographs are in nice shape; a few of the photos have corner creases or missing tips. Two of the photos are annotated, "Chapleau Club Complements J. O. Tetrault." The Chapleau Fish and Game Club was a long-standing private club composed wealthy Quebecers/Quebecois and named in honor of former Premier Joseph-Adolphe Chapleau, who was also an honorary member. J. O. Tetrault, whose name appears in the margins of two photographs, was the founder and president of the Tetrault Shoe Manufacturing Company of Quebec. The photos include exceptional images of scenery, hunting, fishing, canoeing, camping, campfire cooking, hunting dogs, and large numbers of strung deer, fish, and other game. There are also several photos of a member imitating Adolph Hitler, a recently caught shark, ice sculptures, banjo playing, women swimming, and a fantasy image of a 'giant' fish loaded on a truck.

        Photo und Publizität.

      Berlin: Josef Singer,, [1930]. Photo and Advertising. Quarto. Original wrappers. Housed in a red quarter morocco solander box made by the Chelsea Bindery. Title page printed in red & black, 32 monochrome plates from photographs. Spine worn, covers showing signs of handling and a little rubbed, otherwise in good condition for such a fragile publication. First edition, first impression, scarce: Copac locates only one copy in British and Irish institutional libraries (BL); OCLC adds another 13 worldwide (all but one copy in US and German libraries). József Pécsi (1889-1956) "was a Hungarian photographer, innovator, and educator. Born in 1889 into a middle-class family in Budapest (then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire), Pécsi was schooled in German and maintained lifelong ties with an international photography community. He studied photography at the Lehr- und Versuchsanstalt (Training and research institute) in Munich from 1909 to 1911, and began receiving international recognition soon after graduation. In 1911 he returned to Budapest and opened his own studio, where he also offered instruction to apprentices. In 1913 he established the photography department at the Budapest School of Industrial Drawing, for which he is credited as the founder of photography education in Hungary. He was dismissed from teaching in 1920 due to conflicts with the conservative political regime but maintained his own studio, which served as a gathering place for students, including Eva Besnyö and her friend György Kepes. In 1922 Pécsi was elected vice president of the Budapest Industrial Guild of Photographers and served as editor of the guild's journal, Magyar fotográfia (Hungarian photography). In 1930 he published the influential book Photo und Publizität (Photography and publicity) to promote the blending of typography, design, and photography in avant-garde advertising, with contributions from Kepes and others. The publication marks his crossover from the Pictorialist style of his early work to the ascendant international modernism of the interwar period. The World War II years took their toll: he hid in Romania for a brief period; his studio and negatives were destroyed by a bomb in 1945; and, upon his return to Budapest, in 1946, financial hardship and an unfavourable regime forced him to take passport photographs to make ends meet. His passion for photography and innovative spirit were not lost, however; in 1952 he patented a combined duplex Pigment print process under the name PEJO" (MoMA online). The illustrations in Photo und Publizität show Pécsi's modernist approach to advertising photography in everything from biscuits and soap to razor blades and book covers.

        Lesende im Liegestuhl. Tuschpinsel, mit Aquarell laviert.

       30er Jahre. Verso mit Nachlassstempel des Künstlers \"Nachlass Erich Hartmann beglaubigt vom Testamentsvollstrecker\". Auf Velin. 38,2 x 59 cm. Der bildparallel angelegte Liegestuhl mit der Lesenden nimmt die gesamte Breite des Blattes ein. Rechts im Hintergrund ist ein Fenster durch einer mit wenigen Strichen skizzierte Gardine angedeutet. Der hell lavierte Hintergrund links hebt den Kopf der Lesenden hervor. Vermutlich handelt es sich bei der Lesenden Frau um Hartmanns Ehefrau Ida Jenichen. Erich Hartmann leistet einen entscheidenden Beitrag zur Ausbildung und Entwicklung des expressiv realistischen Hamburger Sezessionsstils um 1930. Nach seinem Studium an der Düsseldorfer und Münchener Akademie kommt er 1918 in seine Wahlheimat Hamburg. Ein Jahr später tritt er der Hamburgischen Sezession bei. 1922-44 unterrichtet Hartmann an der privaten Kunstschule Gerda Koppel, an der bedeutende Avantgarde-Maler wie Friedrich Ahlers-Hestermann und Eduard Bargheer zu seinen Kollegen zählen. Durch die Vermittlung von Fritz Schumacher erhält Hartmann mehrere öffentliche Aufträge. 1937 - im Entstehungsjahr des Aqarells - an der Hamburger Kunsthalle und in Stettin Arbeiten von Hartmann durch die Nationalsozialisten entfernt. Nach dem Krieg ist Hartmann von 1946-53 Leiter der Malklasse an der Landeskunstschule Hamburg. Ende der 1940er Jahre löst sich Hartmann von seinen Vorbildern und beschreitet einen eigenen Weg, bei dem er die Form der Farbe unterordnet. Seine späten Arbeiten bewegen sich zwischen Abstraktion und Gegenständlichkeit. - Minimal gebräunt, wenige unbedeutende Fleckchen. Am Unterrand wohl etwas beschnitten, aber ohne Darstellungsverlust.

        Tog Figurn [Day-Figures]: Lider

      Tsushteyer, Lemberg 1930 - 8vo, IIpp, 72pp, 4 linoleum cuts on red paper, with tissue guards. Original cream wrappers with red lettering on cover. Dvoyre Fogel (sometimes referred to as "Debora Vogel") was born in 1902 in Burshtyn (Galicia, now Ukraine) in a non-observant, Polish-speaking home. During World War I the family fled to Vienna and later moved to Lwów, where Fogel spent most of her life. She graduated from the Lwów Jewish gymnasium, where she was active in the Zionist youth movement Ha-Shomer ha-Za'ir and studied philosophy in Vienna and Polish literature in Cracow, receiving her Ph.D. in 1926. Her doctoral dissertation charts the influence of Hegel's aesthetics upon Jozef Kremer (1806-1875), philosopher and scholar of aesthetics and art history. Fogel taught psychology at a Hebrew teachers' college in Lwów. In 1932 she married a Lwów architect and engineer named Barenblit. Her only son, Anshel, was born in 1937. Together with her husband and son, Fogel was killed in the Lwów ghetto in 1942. While at the university Fogel wrote German poetry, but gradually became familiar with Yiddish literature and began to write in that language, although it was not spoken in her home. She became active in Yiddish literary circles and wrote articles for various local Yiddish journals as well as for the Polish journals Sygnaty and Wiadmosci Literackie. She participated in the short-lived Lwów Yiddish journal of literature and art Tsushteyer (1929-1931), contributing a two-part essay on the art of Marc Chagall and other art reviews, besides her own poems and essays on poetry. Fogel's remarkable experimental poetry, all written in the 1930s, was, in the spirit of early twentieth-century art, radically avant-garde and attuned to modernist minimalism. She attempted to fuse modern art and poetry in a new style that she termed "white words," striving, as she put it, to create a new lyric poetry of the urban condition: a poetry of cool stasis and of geometric ornamentation with a rhythm of repetition that can replace melodiousness and dynamism, in which monotone becomes theme. In her creative prose she employed repetitive detached impressions ("montages") to achieve the same goals. Contemporary and later critics considered her style too intellectual, studied and obscure, and lacking in traditional Jewish and feminine thematics. Yet Fogel herself regarded her project not as a deliberate experiment, but rather as "a necessity, achieved and paid for with life's experience."She published two books of Yiddish poetry-Tog-Figurn (Day-Figures, 1930) and Manekinen (Mannequins, 1934)-and a book of short sketches, Akatsyes Bliyen (Acacias Bloom, 1935) in both Polish and Yiddish. Her poems, prose and essays appeared in New York, in the Introspectivist monthly journal Inzikh (1936, 1937, 1938) and in the quarterly Bodn (1937). Text in Yiddish, Wrappers with light wear along edges, small chips, light creasing at corners and rubbed. Condition of wrappers in good condition, interior in very good condition.

        The Stock Market Crash - and after.

      New York: The Macmillan Company,, 1930. Octavo. Original red cloth, gilt lettered spine. With 25 charts in the text. Spine slightly rolled, some pale staining to front cover otherwise a very good copy. First edition, first printing, of Fisher's analysis of the reasons for the 1929 crash, with a detailed discussion of the ensuing effects. "When the 1929 slump occurred, Fisher was over 60 years old; yet he tackled the very difficult theory of economic fluctuations. He finally reached the conclusion - which contains a large element of truth - that business cycles are due on the one hand to the existence in the banking system of uncovered demand deposits and on the other to the opportunities for hoarding offered by the circulating monetary media. These views led him to recommend regulation of the demand for and supply of money through steadily depreciating circulating money and 100% coverage of demand deposits as a cure for business cycle ills" (IESS).

Als Mitbegründer der Neuen Secession baute er in den Jahren 1910/11 gemeinsam mit Georg Tappert die Schule für freie und angewandte Kunst auf und entwickelte nach impressionistischen Anfängen einen ganz individuellen expressiven Figuralstil. Großen Einfluss hatten 1912/13 Studienaufenthalte in Paris und Florenz. 1918 wurde er Mitbegründer der \"Novembergruppe\" und seit 1921 auch Lehrer an der Reimannschule. Im Nationalsozialismus wurden seine Bilder als entartet eingestuft und aus den Museen entfernt. Melzer blieb ein Individualist und ist keiner bestimmten Stilrichtung zuzuordnen. Sein Werk bewegt sich vom Impressionismus zum expressiven Realismus, enthält ebenso kubistische Elemente bis hin zum Neorealismus und andere Stileinflüsse. Versand D: 5,00 EUR

The period painted pages are laid paper, as usual this is "toned" with age, being 85 years old. This is entirely normal. *** THE SCANS AND IMAGES POSTED TO OUR WEBSITE: Please note, the "title.img, illus01.jpg-illus05.jpg" were all taken on our scanner.

The paper is also a bit "toned" and this is overly accented by the scanner. *** REFERENCES: Google: 20painter&hl=en&gbv=2&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N& tab=wi * Google: Cao Kejia: v=2&oq=cao+kejia&gs_l=heirloom-hp.1.1.0j0i22i30.1640.7046.0. 10500. oom-hp..0.9.578.fxfOyBqYh2k * BAIDU.COM: There are lots of other references to his works posted here. *** Color scans can be sent by email.
