      Charles Scribner's Sons, 1930., 1930. First edition. This is the so-called "First Issue" with only a single date (1930) on the copyright page. Otto Penzler in his Descriptive Bibliography on S. S. Van Dine says "The capital letter "A" must appear on the copyright page. The "A" was dropped from all subsequent printings, the method by which Scribner's identified its first printings from 1930 to 1972." Fine, bright, tight copy with all lettering on the cloth bright and un-chipped, in a fine dust jacket with two tiny closed tears at head of spine. Philo Vance's elaborate murder investigation takes place in a museum of Egyptology. There is a great deal of material on ancient Egyptian art. An exceptional copy and certainly this state is much scarcer than the variant with two dates on the copyright page, although the variant state is also scarce.

      Erie, Pa.: Erie Litho. & Ptg. Co., 1930. Very light edge wear. Near fine. An excellent broadsheet advertising a touring 1930 stage production of the life and exploits of legendary outlaw Jesse James. This production was mounted as the Great Depression was deepening, and the treatment of James in the text anticipates the public's fascination with depression-era outlaws such as John Dillinger, Bonnie and Clyde, Ma Barker, and "Baby Face Nelson." James is called "the most interesting character American history has furnished," and it is noted that "thousands of people...were in sympathy with [the James brothers] and followed their sensational career with the utmost interest." Parents are assured that they can safely bring their children to the performance: "it will not corrupt the mind of the young. On the contrary it teaches a great moral lesson." The illustrations depict thrilling scenes from the play, including a bank robbery, a prison break, and Jesse's murder by "the traitor" Robert Ford. This broadsheet was meant to advertise whatever local performance was being undertaken, and the name and place of the venue has been left unaccomplished on this copy.

      Paris: The Black Sun Press, 1930. Oblong small quarto. Half dark blue morocco and decorated boards, gilt extra, with geometric rules and angular diagonal panels reaching from the foretips into the approximate center of the boards, and with a small white morocco rabbit inlaid into the upper side-panel of the spine, t.e.g.. While the binding is unsigned, it is characteristic of Bennett Studios. Light rubbing at tips, else a fine copy, enclosed in a matching morocco faced board slipcase with repaired splits at joints and some chipping to the extremities. First edition in this format. Illustrated with six original color lithographs, signed in the plate, by Marie Laurencin, printed by Desjobert of Paris. From a total edition of 790 copies, this is one of fifty copies on Japan vellum (of 420) for distribution in the United States. The famous Laurencin lithographs benefit significantly from their appearance on Japan vellum in this uncommon issue, which does not suffer from the foxing that frequently defaces the copies on paper. The binding is similar to that appearing on a small but significant number of copies of the US issue executed by Bennett, perhaps at the instigation of the US distributor. MINKOFF A39. MONOD 2304.

Nabokov wrote this novel while living as an émigré in Berlin, and, like many of his earliest works, it was published under his pseudonym V. Sirin, after the mythological Russian bird. Specifically, König, Dame, Bube tells the story of a young German man named Franz who moves to Berlin to work for his wealthy uncle, only to become involved in a love affair with his aunt. Notably, this story would not be published in English until 1968 after being significantly edited by the author and translated by his son Dmitri.. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        A Coast Pomo Girl

      Boston: Suffolk Engraving Company, 1930. Photogravure after Edward Curtis, printed by the Suffolk Engraving Company, wove paper (watermarked 'Van Gelder Zonen Made in Holland'). Excellent condition. A breath-taking image from "The North American Indian", the grandest illustrated work ever produced in the United States, the most important illustrated work on Native Americans, and the single greatest book in Western Americana. Only the double-elephant folio edition of Audubon's "Birds of America" surpasses Curtis in its massive ambition and beauty of execution. "...Because of the singular combination of qualities with which he has been blessed, and because of his extraordinary success in making and using his opportunities... (Curtis) has been able to do what no other man has ever done; what, as far as we can see, no other man could do. He is an artist who works out of doors and not in a closet. He is a close observer, whose qualities of mind and body fit him to make his observations out in the field, surrounded by the wild life he commemorates. He has lived on intimate terms with many different tribes of the mountains and the plains. He knows them as they hunt, as they travel, as they go about their various avocations on the march and in camp. He knows their medicine men and their sorcerers, their chiefs and warriors, their young men and maidens. He has not only seen their vigorous outward existence, but has caught glimpses, such as few white men ever catch, into that strange spiritual and mental life of theirs; from whose inner most recesses all white men are forever barred...." (Theodore Roosevelt, Foreword to Volume I) Renowned for their unrivalled basketry skills, the Pomo tribe inhabited Northern California. Edward Curtis was fascinated by the story of the Native Americans from childhood. His in-depth knowledge of the various tribes increased in parallel with his skill as a photographer during his participation in a number of scientific expeditions in the 1890s. In 1896, Curtis began to take photographs of the Native American tribes (by 1930 he had taken over 40,000 negatives of eighty tribes) and evolve his hugely ambitious plan for a comprehensive work which would illustrate his romantic vision of Native American life before the disastrous impact of European contact. With the enthusiastic support of President Theodore Roosevelt (who wrote the foreword to the present work) and the financial backing of J. Pierpont Morgan (Curtis was introduced to him by Roosevelt), the publishing project finally got under way in 1906. Pierpont Morgan died in 1913 just before the completion of the ninth volume, but his son agreed to continue underwriting the project; between them, they eventually contributed about a third of the $1,500,000 cost. What had originally been projected to take five or six years eventually stretched to twenty-three, finally reaching a conclusion in 1930 but leaving Curtis a broken and bankrupt man. Nonetheless, his grand design was completed, and his work remains as his monument. Cf. Naef & Goldschmidt The Truthful Lens 40; cf. Howes C-965.

      (ca. 1930/1950). - 65 x 49 cm. *Melzer war zunächst als Porzellanmaler tätig, 1903 Beginn eines Kunststudiums in Weimar, 1906 wurde er Schüler von Prof. L. von Hoffmann. 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.

März 1876 in Reutlingen; gest. 8. März 1964 in Gaienhofen) war ein deutscher Schriftsteller und Arzt. Neben eigenen schriftstellerischen Erfolgen ist er bekannt durch seine Freundschaft mit Hermann Hesse, von der eine umfangreiche Korrespondenz erhalten ist. Während der gemeinsamen Gaienhofener Zeit (Hesse zog 1912 nach Bern) verband Hesse und Finckh eine enge Freundschaft. Aufgrund unterschiedlicher Ansichten entfremdeten sich Finckh und Hesse jedoch immer mehr. Zum einen vertrat Finckh ein Bild von Familie und Muttertum, das nicht Hesses künstlerischem Selbstverständnis entsprach. Zum anderen kritisierte Hesse Finckhs unkritische, nationalistische und antisemitische Haltung. Nach der \"Machtergreifung\" durch die Nationalsozialisten gehörte Finckh im Oktober 1933 zu den 88 Schriftstellern, die das Gelöbnis treuester Gefolgschaft für Adolf Hitler unterzeichneten.

        Peter Pan and Wendy.

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, n.d., [c.1930]., 1930. FIRST HUDSON ILLUSTRATED EDITION. Published for Boots Pure Drug Co. Quarto. pp. 272. With 21 full-page colour illustrations and many more in-text or to margins. In recent Atkinson's full dark navy morocco with raised bands and gilt titles to orange label on spine. All edges gilt; marbled end-papers. Blue cloth with gilt titles and stamping from original upper board bound in at rear. A spotless, beautifully re-bound fine copy. Hudson illustrated just two carefully chosen classic fantasy books, namely J.M Barrie's Peter Pan and Wendy and Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures In Wonderland. Her Alice was printed in London in 1922, with Peter Pan following in 1930. Her illustrations, like Arthur Rackham's, were both full in colour or simpler silhouettes, and although very little is known of the artist, she was nevertheless a contemporary of Mable Lucy Atwell, Lucy Kemp Welsh and Virginia Sterrett during the golden age of Edwardian gift books. Her modest but exquisite output remains highly desirable today.

        Collection of lobby cards from melodramas of the silent film era

      Various cities: Various studios, 1930. Archive of 47 hand tinted lobby cards representing 17 different melodramas and genre films of the silent era, nearly all produced by independent Poverty Row studios, and nearly all now lost. Only two of the films have reference points familiar to most students of twentieth century cinema: an early film by director William Wyler, and a melodrama starring a young Gary Cooper and an even younger Jean Arthur. The Poverty Row studios represented by the collection include Arrow Pictures, Astor Pictures, Beacon Productions, Berwilla Film Corporation, Chadwick Pictures Corporation, Di Lorenzo, Excellent Pictures, First Division Pictures, Frederick Herbst Productions, Gotham Productions, Harry J. Brown Productions, Henry Ginsberg Distributing Company, Independent Pictures, Lumas Film Corporation, McFadden True Story Pictures, Morris R. Schlank Productions, Phil Goldstone Productions, Rayart Pictures Corporation, and Trem Carr Pictures. Also represented is one film by Universal Pictures, which, while a larger studio compared to the others noted here, was still a very small operation relative to the major studios in the 1920s. A wide variety of genres and themes are represented in the collection, including a cross-dressing female investigator, a railroad melodrama, a crime-sniffing dog, society melodramas, college melodramas, a military melodrama, boxing stories, a "north woods" adventure, teenage romance, a seafaring melodrama, and fire fighters. Cards are all 11 x 14 inches. Condition varies, most Good to Very Good, and all with some tears and loss at the edges.

        The Works.

      New York: Doubleday, Doran & Co.,, 1930. The Crowborough Edition. 24 volumes, octavo (215 × 146 mm). Contemporary blue half morocco, blue cloth sides, titles and decoration to spine gilt with raised bands, gilt rules to boards, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Photogravure frontispiece portrait with tissue guard by Pirie MacDonald to Volume I. Small bookplate to the verso of front free endpapers at the top, pages nice and clean, some minor restoration to a couple of headcaps, an excellent set. First complete collected edition, number 324 of 760 sets signed by the author in volume I, of which 750 were for sale and ten for presentation. The Crowborough edition—named after the Sussex town where Doyle's home, Windlesham, was located—has double the number of volumes of the Author's Edition of 1903. Doyle had already signed sheets for it but his illness and death on 7 July 1930 prevented him seeing final publication of the work, and so it belongs to that select category, the posthumous signed limited edition. The introductions are reprinted from the Author's Edition, and the text is set from the existing editions without any corrections.

        Two years before he is appointed to the Supreme Court by President Herbert Hoover, Benjamin Cardozo, Chief Judge of the New York Court of Appeals, advises his predecessor as Chief Judge, Frank S. Hiscock to ?hold out an olive branch to the Governor,? Franklin D. Roosevelt, in an address he is to make to the annual meeting of the New York State Bar Association of which he is president.

      Albany, [New York], January 7, 1930. 5.75" x 8". "Autograph Letter Signed ?B.N.C.? as Chief Judge of the New York Court of Appeals, 2.5 pages, 5.75? x 8?, separate conjoined sheets with conclusion on verso of first page. Albany [New York], January 7, 1930. Salutation ?My dear Chief? [former Chief Judge of the New York Court of Appeals, Frank S. Hiscock].On January 17, 1930, Cardozo?s predecessor as Chief Judge of the New York Court of Appeals, Frank H. Hiscock, spoke at the 53rd annual meeting of the New York State Bar Association. Hiscock, now president of the State Bar, had retired from the bench at the end of 1926 when he reached the constitutional age limit of 70 years. Hiscock had sent Judge Cardozo a copy of the address he planned to deliver.In full, ?Thank you for sending me a copy of your address which I have read with interest. I see nothing of substance to be criticized. Perhaps on p. 3, it might be well to omit the statement that our court ?has repeatedly adjourned for lack of business.? The public might think we were without there was no different cause for preserving us. You might say, ?and does not adjourn until all the cases read for argument have been heard.??On the page before the last, (at the end of the page) you might hold out an olive branch to the Governor [Franklin D. Roosevelt] by saying that it ought not to be difficult to provide for some partial representation of laymen on the commission if such representation is thought desirable.. I cannot think of anything else. Faithfully yours.?Hiscock took Cardozo?s advice. ?The New York Times? reported on January 18, 1930, that in his address, ?Judge Hiscock outlined the movement launched by the association to make a survey of the administration of justice, and disclosed that the survey had been handicapped by the inability of the committee, headed by William C. Breed, to obtain the necessary funds. Judge Hiscock estimated that at least $75,000 would be required for the survey. He referred to the Governor?s veto of an appropriation of $60,000 for the survey on the ground that laymen were not represented on the commission and suggested a new attempt to obtain the passage of a measure.?On February 6, 1930, Governor Roosevelt met with a delegation from the Executive Committee of the New York Bar Association headed by former Judge Hiscock. ?The New York Times? reported that a ?bill sponsored by the Republicans was passed last year, but the Governor vetoed it because it provided for an investigation commission composed exclusively of lawyers, while he had insisted that there should be a liberal sprinkling of laymen on it. ?I am now very hopeful that a bill we be passed on which all hands can agree,? the Governor said after the conference today. ?I am glad the Governor said that,? Senator John Knight [President pro tempore of the N.Y. State Senate and a Republican] remarked when informed of the Governor?s statement. ?If he wants some lay members on the commission, we have no objection.??"
