Grey cloth folding box. 3 pp., pencil on paper, approx. 750 words, with numerous corrections, revisions, and interpolations. 4to. Art Young Remembers Chaplin: 'but I know that a good part of him is sad'. American cartoonist Art Young (1866-1943) recalls meetings with Charlie Chaplin in 1921, upon his return to New York "from that trip to England during which his fame had blazed over the wide world." Young, one of the founders (with Max Eastman) the radical magazine Masses (and its 1920s successor New Masses), recounts how "in a quiet room one afternoon [Chaplin] told me of his boyhood days, when he was an 'alley cat' in a poor quarter of London. Unknown, kicked around, and slept nights in the wagons of a fruit peddler." Chaplin told of the sudden renown which accompanied his trip to London, where a crowd gathered outside the barber shop while he had a hair cut. "A modest sensitive philosophical you man this Englishman with the platypus feet ... I suppos that there are millions of people who think of Charlie Chaplin as just 'a funny man'. But I know that a good part of him is sad." Young recalls another meeting at a party, where he, Max Eastman, and Charlie Chaplin and "a welll known dancers of those days" performed a charade, with Young as the farmer remonstrating "the wayward daughter". This brief memoir concludes, "That was a night of revelry and ridicule of the drama of old time sentimentality." Young published two autobiographies On My Way (1928) and Art Young: His Life and Times (1939). Good content, with discussion of Chaplin's enormous fame, with mention of magazine publishing and Max Eastman, too.

      Seeley, Service & Co. Ltd, London 1930 - 200 x 264 mm (10 3/8 x 7 7/8"). 336 pp. No. 324 OF 370 COPIES for sale (from a total edition of 380), SIGNED by the author. Publisher's original white buckram, flat spine with gilt titling, top edge gilt, other edges untrimmed, first third of the leaves UNOPENED. With 383 figures, including tipped-in plates, and two plates with alphabets of Roman capitals by the author. Final two leaves of Appendix and first two of Index with two-inch closed tear at bottom (not affecting text), otherwise A VERY FINE COPY, the white cloth remarkably clean and bright, and the text immaculate. This is an essential reference and tutorial for anyone interested in lettering, written by English calligrapher and illuminator William Graily Hewitt (1864-1952). Beginning with a discussion of pens, Hewitt guides the reader through the fundamentals of forming letters in a variety of scripts, his careful instructions helpfully supplemented with many illustrations. He covers Carolingian, gothic, and Renaissance scripts, Roman capitals, and arrangements of letters, then concludes with an in-depth discussion of legibility, materials, and gilding. In the revival of calligraphy in England during the 20th century, Graily Hewitt is second only to his teacher Edward Johnston in importance. In 1901, he succeeded Johnston as instructor at the Central School of Arts and Crafts, where he taught courses in lettering for more than 30 years. One of the founders of the Society of Scribes and Illuminators, he is credited with reviving Medieval methods for gilding with gesso and gold leaf on vellum. Hewitt established a nexus between calligraphy and type design, holding to the belief that type should represent what the pen created. Among other accomplishments, he designed a number of initials for St. John Hornby's Ashendene Press from 1902-35. No. 324 OF 370 COPIES for sale (from a total edition of 380), SIGNED by the author.

      New York: Caxton Press, 1930. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good +. Small 4to. Full red cloth, with beveled boards and designerÂ’s relief logo medallion mounted to front. Ornate gilt decoration and lettering to spine. With 53 trademark illustrations. One of 750 copies, this #120, numbered and SIGNED by Hornung to colophon. Thomas Maitland Cleland-designed bookplate of noted Chicago collector and Newberry Library trustee Alfred E. Hamill to front paste-down. Additional own- ership inscription of Chicago graphic artist Phyllis K. Unosawa to second end-paper. Spine cloth faded. Light wear to boards and cloth, corners slightly bumped. Top edge mildly soiled. Very good or better. An impressive collection of business and corporate logos, and the first book from the prolific American illustrator and designer Clar- ence P. Hornung. Hornung was one of the most important and influ- ential designers of the 20th century; his HANDBOOK OF DESIGNS AND DEVICES, first published in 1932, remains an important resource and many iconic trademarks and logos of the last century were either de- signed by Hornung or were directly inspired by his work. His TREASURY OF AMERICAN DESIGN (Abrams, 1972) was a landmark reference that Hil- ton Kramer called "a work of extraordinary beauty — Mr. Hornung also designed it — which is a virtual encyclopedia of American folk art [...] indispensable." TRADE-MARKS itself is an elegant production, in keeping with the work it contains, with embossed French-fold leaves, each bearing a single color logo. More than half of the focus is on the bibliographic, including the logos of Encyclopedia Britannica, Scribner's, Farrar and Rinehart (two variants), Harper, Book League of America, Mazarin Press, Vanguard Press, Sunflower Press and Cax- ton Press. With a preface by Harry L. Gage. Uncommon in trade, and from the library of two noteworthy Chicago area book collectors, scarce indeed.

        Kreisa fronte. [Left Front.] 1930. No. 5/6

      Latvju Kultura, Rig? 1930 - Cover designed by Ernests K?lis. Illustrated with two photomontages and a linocut by E Ka?a and two reproductoin of Georg Grosz' drawings. First edition. Published in only 1200 copies. In publisher's illustrated wrappers. 79, (1) p. Last, double issue of the third and last year of "Kreis? fronte", the first substantial leftist Latvian-language journal with international aspirations. Its concept and format followed Vladimir Mayakovsky's magazine the "LEF" and the design of "Novy Lef". Only 17 issues were published between 1928 and 1930, when it was banned by the authorities, and Laicens launched his new magazine the "Trib?ne". The content of "Kreis? fronte" was more cultural than political, contained avant-garde literary elements as well as photographic artwork. Linards (Petrovich) Laicens (1883-1938) was a Latvian Expressionist writer and poet, active in politics as a member of Communist party. He was the editor or the leftist Avant-garde journals "Kreis? Fronte" and "Trib?ne". [Bibl.: Fraser, James H.: Publishing and Book Design in Latvia 1919-1940: A Re-discovery.

        My Early Life. A Roving Commission

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited,, 1930. Octavo (210 x 131 mm). Late 20th century scarlet full morocco by Bayntun-Riviere, decorative gilt tooled and panelled spine, single-line gilt border on sides, facsimile of Churchill's signature in gilt on front cover, all edges gilt, decorative gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, with the original purple cloth covers and spine bound-in. Frontispiece and 15 plates from photographs, maps and plans. A handsomely bound copy. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy from Churchill, inscribed on the blank before the half-title: "Roger Keyes from Winston S. Churchill. March 1931". A significant association: Roger John Brownlow Keyes, first Baron Keyes (1872-1945) was a British naval officer whose career spanned two world wars and who is described by ODNB as "the quintessential man of action". There is a good potted biography of him in relation to Churchill in Eugene L. Rasor's Winston S. Churchill, 1974-1965: A Comprehensive Historiography and Annotated Bibliography (2000, p. 169): "If there was one naval officer who was a protégé of Churchill, it was Roger Keyes. Keyes, at age 13, enetered the navy, participated in the anti-slave trade patrol, was at the Dardanelles, favoured a second naval attack, remained an apologist for Churchill and the campaign, led the Dover anti-U-boat patrol, led the Zeebrugge operation at the end of the war, served in Parliament for Portsmouth North, made a dramatic speech in full uniform at the time of the debate on the Norwegian campaign, and was appointed, and soon removed, by Churchill as Director of Combined Operations, replaced by Mountbatten. He was loyal but unpredictable". My Early Life is Churchill's first volume of sustained biography, a highly entertaining account of his childhood, schooldays at Harrow, military training at Sandhurst, experiences as a war correspondent in Cuba, service attached to the Malakand field force on the northwest frontier of India, charging with the 21st lancers at Omdurman, and as a POW in South Africa during the Boer War.

        Autograph letter signed.

      Boulogne-Billancourt, [after 1930]. - 4to. 1¾ pp. To an "Editorial Board": "What you asked me in your last letter represents the hardest task for me. I am a badly organized and lazy person in regards to anything that is not related to my direct work, which is sculpture. There is enough literature, a few monographs, and lots of magazines and newspaper articles, but to put it all together is beyond my ability. I will send you the one that I received recently as an example. Incidentally this is one is flattering, but there are a few that are not so rewarding. Anyway - all that is not really important. I believe that the day will come when the contour of my art will become clear. Meanwhile, for those who want to know from where I came and how old I am - here is my short autobiography. I was born on 30th of August (new style) in v[illage] Druskeniki; Grodno county, in a pious Jewish family. I studied at vocational school in Vilna and in 1909 went to Paris to study scultpure (I did some as a self-taught since my early childhood). So I have lived here since that time, I even became a naturalized French citizen. I studied at the Academy and since 1912 have had several exhibitions in different salons, but not many. I did have a personal exhibition at the Rosenberg gallery in 1920 and a second one, very extensive in 1930. My works are in different personal collections and museums. There is not much exciting in happening in my life. That's all. With all my respect [.]". - Though Pablo Picasso is credited with creating Cubism, Lipchitz advanced and further interpreted the style by applying the principles of Cubist painting to sculpture. When he moved to Paris in 1909, he became acquainted with Picasso, as well as fellow sculptors Juan Gris and Alexander Archipenko. During this time he created Cubist sculptures including his "Sailor with Guitar". In 1924, Swiss avant-garde architect Le Corbusier built a studio for Lipchitz on the outskirts of Paris, whence our letter was written. By the time the Nazi's occupied France, forcing Lipchitz to move to the U. S., he was known around the world. - Folded with a small vertical fold tear at the upper edge and four file holes in the margin not affecting the text. With a moderate amount of foxing and some uneven age toning on the recto. A fragment of paper headed "Le Musée" is affixed to the upper left corner.

      Paramount Studios 1930 - [Lombard, Carole]. ARCHIVE OF SIX CAROLE LOMBARD ORIGINAL PARAMOUNT "FILE COPY" SCRIPTS. Los Angeles: Paramount Studios, 1931-1937. Remarkable and possibly unique collection of primary source material related to actress Carole Lombard's tenure as one of Paramount Studio's most glamorous stars. SIX original screenplays, all side-stitched in studio self-wrappers, all rubber-stamped "FILE COPY" and all in Very Good or better condition. 1. 146pp original studio-mimeographed screenplay dated February 24th, 1931 for "UP POPS THE DEVIL" complete with holograph revisions and blue revision leaves. 2. 110pp original studio-mimeographed screenplay dated November 11th, 1931 for "NO ONE MAN" co-starring Ricardo Cortez. 3. Complete Final Draft studio-mimeographed screenplay dated October 24th, 1933 for "BOLERO" co-starring George Raft. 4. 116pp original studio-mimeographed screenplay dated December 26th, 1933 for "WE'RE NOT DRESSING" co-starring Bing Crosby. 5. 121pp original studio-mimeographed screenplay dated November 8th, 1934 for "RUMBA" co-starring George Raft. 6. 170pp original studio-mimeographed screenplay dated August 28th, 1937 for "TRUE CONFESSION" co-starring Fred MacMurray and John Barrymore. These are the kind of original scripts which rarely survive from this era, especially in this superb condition. There are likely less than 3 or 4 known survivors of each of these titles and, as a group, these six scripts may represent the largest collection of original Paramount Carole Lombard screenplays in private hands.

      London, 1930. No. 134 OF 195 COPIES on paper (and 10 on vellum) n. Hardcover. 364 x 256 mm (14 1/4 x 10 1/8"). Two volumes. No. 134 OF 195 COPIES on paper (and 10 on vellum). FINE RECENT DARK GREEN HALF MOROCCO, GILT, BY COURTLAND BENSON, lighter green marbled paper sides, raised bands, spines handsomely gilt in compartments in antique style with large elegant floral stamp centerpiece and curling leafy cornerpieces, gilt titling, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. With a total of 27 engravings (26 images), as called for: a title page vignette featuring a bust of Swift (appearing in each volume), eight head- and tailpieces, five full-page maps, and 12 DELICATELY HAND-COLORED COPPER-ENGRAVED PLATES (including two frontispieces) BY REX WHISTLER, each within an ornate baroque-style frame. Front pastedown of volume II with the bookplate of Charles J. Rosenbloom. Ransom, p. 7. A VERY FINE SET inside and out. This is a beautifully rebound copy of one of the major Cresset books. Inspired by such masters as Watteau, Canoletto, and Boucher, Whistler's work, including the witty drawings here surrounded by rococo frames, recall the 18th century heyday of French book illustration. Horne quotes a 1984 exhibit at the British Museum that says, "This playful essay in 18th century pastiche is, like much fine English book-making of the 1920s and 1930s, aesthetically backward-looking. Whistler's drawings are matched by a text printed in a revival of John Baskerville's 18th century types." Reginald John "Rex" Whistler (1905-44) made a name for himself in mural painting, stage design, and book illustration, and in "Gulliver," his skills as a theater designer and as a muralist align to produce what is widely regarded as his masterpiece, as well as a highspot of 20th century fine printing. Horne describes him as "one of the most gifted figures of the years between the wars," and laments that his artistic career was brought to a tragically premature end by World War II, during which Whistler died while serving as a tank troop leader in France. Our copy's prior owner, Pittsburgh attorney and businessman Charles J. Rosenbloom (1898-1973), was a philanthropist, bibliophile, and art collector with broad interests and refined taste.
