        A Collection of 43 SpaldingÕs Football Rule Books

      New York: American Sports Publishing, 1903-1930 - Some are in wrappers; some bound either with or without wrappers; many with notes, mostly pencil, and various enclosures, printed and holograph. These were the property of player and coach (mostly at the University of Chicago) Amos Alonzo Stagg, and his name is embossed on many covers, and while we are unfamiliar with his writing, presumably many, if not most or all, of the notes are in his hand. This is an extensive collection, but evidently not complete with every rule book from every year, and there are some duplicates. The condition varies as to be expected in publications intended for the playing field; generally very good. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Parabaik Burmese Myanmar Tattoo Book

      - CONDITION: Very Good; no marks, or tears; the black lacquer is a bit dulled. I have not attempted to clean it. There is a 1x1.5" chip in the black on one back corner and a small bump and crack on a front corner tip. The bird has a dull scratch near its head. The pages are Fine, bright, unwrinkled, and extremely clean; the folds are not rubbed or torn at all and the corners are sharp. There is no indication of when this book was published. Because the tattoo designs use four colours of varying shades, it is not an early 19th c book, The lacquer work suggests that it is older, probably before the suppression of tattoos by the British in the 1930's, so say 1890 to 1928, perhaps produced for the tourist trade and certainly barely used. BINDING: Concertina fold, leporello, book, 10.2 x 16.5 cm, 4.1 x 6.5" , with 18 + 16 "pages", pasted to decorated black lacquered wooden boards. (Unfolded, one side shows 16 double sided pages plus two "endpapers" pasted to wooden boards, making 18, the other shows 16 pages and the two boards) . The images are carefully hand coloured in several shades of green, yellow, and purple, and the edges of the rough mulberry? paper are stained in black. The boards have fine incised work in red, grey blue, and golden yellow, with lines and colours placed close together (for example, each gold "brushstroke" in our jpg is actually six fine lines). One board shows a woman in a courtyard among buildings with others looking out the windows, all very linear; the other board has elaborate curved coloured lines with a fantastic bird in the center cartouche. Parabaiks like these were produced as sample tattoo books. From the British museum, manuscript similar to ours: "The manuscript is a digest of tattoo designs for a potential client to choose from, and would have been used by the tattooer to advertise his range of work." The traditional tattoos had religious or magical powers and both protected the wearer and gave him strength. This book has 27 different tattoos, black outlined coloured drawings surrounded by text, some on double spreads and some single pages: elephants brandishing swords, goddesses riding tigers, magical birds, and creatures bearing magic squares and circles, fish, chicken headed snakes, and circles of lizards and many animals with human or goddess heads.

        Wild Apples. With a Preface by William Butler Yeats.

      Dublin: The Cuala Press, 1930 - Octavo. Original Holland boards. With the unprinted dust jacket. A fine copy, with the dust jacket very good though chipped at the ends and corners, and a little creased and marked. First edition thus, limited issue, presentation copy, inscribed by the author "with homage to Katherine Tynan from Oliver Gogarty, Dublin 24:iv:1930" on the front free endpaper, in the very scarce dust jacket. Katherine Tynan (1859–1931) was a hugely prolific Irish poet, a significant figure in the Irish Renaissance, and a friend of W. B. Yeats. This edition of Wild Apples, which was printed in 250 copies, was preceded by the 1926 private edition of 50 copies which did not include Yeats's preface. It is the second selection by Yeats of the poems of Oliver Gogarty, likened by him in his opening poem, "The Crab Tree", to "a tart crop" of wild apples. This copy also contains the publisher's advertisement card for Wild Apples laid-in. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Kin Ping Meh. [10 Original-Radierungen und Titelblatt].

      Eigendruck, ohne Ort und Jahr [um 1930]. - Folio: 35x30 cm. Gelbe Orig.-Leinenmappe mit aufgezogenem Pergamenttitelschild am Deckel. Das Titelblatt ist handgeschrieben und gibt jedem Blatt einen Titel, teils als literarisches Zitat. Jede Radierung signiert und mit dem Vermerk 'Eigendruck' versehen. Die zarten, lyrischen aber auch eindeutig erotischen Zeichnungen dieser Folge werden ihrer literarischen Vorlage, dem großen erotischen Roman, der über 400 Jahre in China verboten war, vollkommen gerecht. Die Auflagenhöhe der Mappe ist nicht angegeben, doch kann sie in kaum mehr als maximal 100 Exemplaren erschienen sein. Mappe etwas berieben, leicht angeschmutzt und verzogen. Die Tafeln vereinzelt am Rand fingerfleckig. Hervorragendes, bibliographisch nicht nachzuweisendes Werk. ------------------------------- Safft, Roderich von. Kin Ping Meh. [10 eaux-fortes et page de titre]. Édition privée, sans lieu ni date [vers 1930]. In-folio: 35x30 cm. Portefeuille toile jaune, pièce de titre parchemin montée sur le premier plat. La page de titre est manuscrite ; elle titre chaque illustration, en partie avec citation littéraire. Chaque eau-forte signée avec la notice 'Eigendruck' (imprimé par l'artiste). Les illustrations, très délicates et lyriques, correspondent parfaitement à leur modèle littéraire, ce roman érotiques célèbre, qui fut interdit en Chine pendant plus de 400 ans. Le tirage n'est pas mentionné ; la fabrication à grand coût laisse supposer que cents exemplaires au maximum furent réalises. Sans référence bibliographiques. --------------------- Safft, Roderich von. Kin Ping Meh. Portfolio with 10 original etchings by Roderich von Safft and title-page.

The title-page is handwritten in calligraphic style with titles for each etching. Each etching signed by the artist and with the note "Eigendruck" which means etching printed by the artist himself. The etchings combine lyrical delicateness with explicit erotic presentation. The number of printed copies is not mentioned but according to its rareness it couldn't be hardly more than 100 copies.

With the dust jacket. With 3 folding tables. Printed errata slip tipped-in at page vii. Japanese bookseller's ticket to rear free endpaper.

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).

Also included are assignments such as spelling tests and essays tipped into the pages with grades, all of which show Jessup as a good student. One page shows commercial photos from Gay's Lion Farm where Jessup was taken by her uncle and grandmother as a reward for getting through admission day. She writes that it was "very interesting and we enjoyed it very much." One sections shows the school's dress up days with girls dressed up as musicians, one of which is complete with black face. In 1929 Jessup transferred to Oceanside-Carlsbad Union High School for her junior and senior year. These pages continue with ephemera from her time at the school including a copy of the O-C High Tide newsletters, various programs, and an athletic letter for participating in basketball, volleyball, and baseball and earning 30 points. She includes pages dedicated to her athletic pursuits including a section with ephemera from her basketball banquet. One section with a photograph of a sailor and a ship is from a class cruise where Jessup excitedly writes that they had the whole ship to themselves. She continues, "the shipmates and waiters were sure nice to us and we had a wonderful time." Interspersed throughout the album are photos of her classmates, some candids include building a human pyramid and general high school goofing off. 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]
