      Chelsea: Ashendene Press, 1930. ONE OF 260 COPIES on paper, 240 for sale (and 20 on vellum) n. Hardcover. mm (). 4 p.l., 363, [1] pp. Translated by Benjamin Jowett. ONE OF 260 COPIES on paper, 240 for sale (and 20 on vellum). Original white pigskin by W. H. Smith & Son (stamp-signed on rear turn-in), raised bands, gilt titling, edges untrimmed. In a substantial marbled slipcase (from the time of publication?) with pigskin edging to match the volume. With first initial of each chapter and opening line of each book designed by Graily Hewitt, printer's device in the colophon. Printed in red and black. Hornby 37; Franklin, p. 242. A few small scrapes on spine (as almost always), just a whisper of soiling to the white pigskin, one tiny closed tear at a fore edge, but AN EXTREMELY FINE COPY, the essentially unworn binding much cleaner than we have a right to expect, and the text virtually pristine. This is an uncommonly fine copy of a grand edition of the definitive classical account of the war between Athens and Sparta. A meticulous researcher who visited battlefields and interviewed participants from both sides in the Peloponnesian War, Thucydides (ca. 460 - ca. 395 B.C.), the greatest of all Greek historians, was himself an Athenian general who fought in the conflict's first phases. Influenced by the medical writers of his day, he diagnoses with clinical detachment the ills of a corrupt society under the pressures of war and epidemic. He was also a great dramatist, and the tragic defeat in the harbor of Syracuse that signals the fall of Athens is written with a skill that equals the greatest Greek tragedians. A work of this magnitude deserves a stately edition, and that is what St. John Hornby has produced here. Sidney Cockerell praised the Ashendene "Thucydides" as "one of the greatest of the many accomplishments of [the] Press--a very fine page, the measure not too wide for so large a type and the side notes most beautiful and effective." The book is printed in Ptolemy type (a "perceptive choice" for the large page, according to Franklin) with shoulder notes in Blado italic; it marks the first time Hornby used a typeface for the side notes that was different from the text. Our translation is by Benjamin Jowett (1817-93), Regius Professor of Greek at Oxford and the Master of Balliol College, whose influence in shaping the course of university education was far reaching. His translations of Plato, Aristotle, and Thucydides were still in print at the end of the 20th century.

        Striking publicity photograph signed in Cyrillic, from the collection of Serge Lifar

      Paris: Studio Keyston[e] Talbot,, c.1930. Large glossy dark sepia publicity photo (290 × 230 mm). Slight creasing at the corners, but overall very good. Glamorous image taken from a session at the Keystone Talbot studios on rue Royale featuring La Baker posing in spectacular sparkling earrings on a tiger skin rug. Carefully "signed" by her in Cyrillic, no doubt coached by her friend Serge Lifar. Baker and Lifar came to prominence in Paris at about the same time, Baker for her remarkable appearances in the Revue nègre, Lifar for his similarly ground-breaking performances for the Ballets Russes, they became firm friends and Lifar was happy to credit Baker for her influence on his choreography. Keystone Talbot was noted for its connection with some of the leading couture houses - Drecoll, Bourniche, Paquin, Buzenet and Lewis - and the world of theatre, dance and film, producing dramatically staged and lit images, very much as here. An amusing jeu d'esprit, with excellent association evoking Paris in the 20s and 30s, and visually highly appealing.

      The Macmillan Company, 1930. - First edition. First issue. 8vo. The Suppressed edition. Dark blue cloth, titles stamped in gold gilt on the spine, v [blank], 372 [1] pp., frontispiece (portrait of Theodore Roosevelt in riding costume), prologue, illustrated, portraits, epilogue. Signed in ink on the half-title page by Owen Wister and dated November 14, 1931, with the further inked comments "See pages 25, 100, and 203." Corrections have been made in ink in Wister's hand on pages 25, 100, and 203. He has also made inked corrections on page 1 and at the Epilogue. Additionally Wister has corrected in ink Edith Roosevelt's middle name from "Karow" to "Carow." This copy bears the bookplates of Theodore Roosevelt III and Eleanor Butler Roosevelt on the front pastedown sheet. Also on the half-title page written in pencil are the words "The Suppressed Edition, E.B.R." (Eleanor Butler Roosevelt). This "Suppressed Edition" was named such because the spelling of Karow is with a "K" and corrected to a "C," and the book contains the story of a woman who, for her own future gain, lured Roosevelt into a house to meet / greet / honor a former slave. The story was removed in the second state of the book. Theodore "Ted" Roosevelt III, was the eldest son of Theodore "T. R." Roosevelt, Jr. Eleanor Butler Roosevelt (1880-1960) was a philanthropist, First Lady of Puerto Rico and the Philippines, and a daughter-in-law of U. S. President Theodore Roosevelt. She was the only daughter of Henry Addison Alexander, a prominent New York lawyer, and Grace Green. She was a great grand daughter of Theron Butler. She married politician and general Theodore Roosevelt III on June 29, 1910. A fine copy in the elusive dust jacket that has minor wear to the spine ends and a tiny chip to top of front and rear cover panels. Housed in a cloth slipcase and an exceptional copy of a choice item. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Autograph Draft Letter, in German, to Adele Jolles, wife of the professor with whom Wittgenstein lodged as a young man whilst attending the Technische Hochschule in Berlin, in which Wittgenstein seeks to explain his feelings on expression, loyalty,and affection

      Cambridge, Trinity College, , 1930. Autograph manuscript on ruled paper, folio, ff. [2]; written in Wittgenstein's cursive hand in pencil, with occasional corrections. Housed in a manilla folder. In a good state of preservation. The autograph draft of a personal letter written by Wittgenstein to the wife of a professor with whom he had lodged during his time of study in Berlin between 1906 and 1908, who "adopted him as their own 'little Wittgenstein'. Much later … Wittgenstein was embarrassed by the intimacy he had shared with the Jolles family, and replied to the friendly and affectionate letters he received from Mrs Jolles with stiff politeness. But while he was in Berlin, and for a number of years after he left, he was grateful enough for the warm concern they showed him." (Monk, p. 27). Written in reply to a letter of September 1930, in which Frau Jolles compliments him on the success of his career, whilst regretting the loss of their friendship - "You will always belong to the few bright and dear memories that I have; that's to say you won't, but that 'little Wittgenstein' and dear person will, whom you scarcely wish to know about any longer. I don't know the Wittgenstein of today." ?- Wittgenstein appears to strive to justify whatever misdeed had caused that disappointment by calling it a matter of communication, which he had mismanaged for the sake of "loyalty". The issue of loyalty runs through the whole draft: "Indeed, when I received your last letter but one, the letter in which you told me of your great misfortune, your unnatural and ?- forgive me the word ?- journalistic ways of expressing yourself caused me such repugnance and the feeling of such a difference between us that I put aside as absurd any idea of achieving an understanding with you. But now I see (and I even saw then, though less clearly) that it was wrong of me to allow myself to be ruled by such feelings when feelings of gratitude and loyalty should have come first. For that reason your reproach of disloyalty is unfortunately not only quite unjustified even though the case is not quite what you, naturally enough, suppose it to be. I knew and regretted that I had to disappoint your husband but that was not where my fault lay., because I had to disappoint a number of people precisely by doing the right thing. What I want to say is that my fault did not consist in regarding the achievement of understanding as out of the question, because it was - and perhaps still is ?- out of the question: no, my fault consisted in treating gratitude and loyalty as less important than mutual understanding, whereas in comparison with them it is of no account whatever. So I did after all not behave decently and I beg you and your husband to forgive me for that, if you can do so whole-heartedly." (McGuinness, p. 59). A valuable insight into the cerebral attempts of Wittgenstein to define, justify and overrule feelings, or instinctive reactions, or personal awkwardness, with reasoned arguments.

      Barcelona, 1879-1930. - Exceptionnel et précieux ensemble de partitions, pour la plupart manuscrites, composant les archives musicales du guitariste espagnol Severino García Fortea. Né vers 1850 à Siete Aguas près de Valence, il vécut toute sa vie à Barcelone où il mourut en 1931. Elève et ami du maître guitariste Tárrega, il fut un guitariste de haut niveau et l'un des premiers à composer systématiquement des arrangements pour la guitare à partir d'airs connus. On lui attribue notamment le premier arrangement pour la guitare de la célèbre pièce "Asturias" du compositeur Albéniz, initialement composée pour le piano et qui devint l'un des morceaux les plus célèbre du répertoire de la guitare classique. Ces archives se composent 1° d'une importante collection de partitions manuscrites, autographes pour la plupart, et 2° de partitions imprimées sous forme de fascicules conservés dans une chemise cartonnée ou sous forme de volumes reliés. Les archives manuscrites rassemblent plus de 150 partitions autographes signées de Severino García, dont plus des deux tiers sont constitués de ses travaux originaux de transcription pour la guitare et ses compositions originales. On y trouve également des pièces autographes signées par des musiciens de l'entourage de García Fortea, comme Francisco Tárrega, Manuel Rodríguez, Miguel Ángel Garcia Lassalette, Francisco Ferrán, Severino López, Antonio Mestres Gómez, Fernando Gravina, ou Antonio López Villanueva. Parmi les partitions imprimées se trouve notamment un exemplaire annoté de l'Arlésienne de Bizet, un exemplaire du livre de Baldomero Cateura i Turró sur la mandoline espagnole offert par l'auteur à Severino García Fortea, un recueil de partitions pour piano, et une importante collection de fascicules de musique notée dont certains ont été offerts à Severino García par leur auteur (Eduardo Mezzacapo, Manuel Burgés). Cet ensemble exceptionnel offre un témoignage de première importance sur les travaux du guitariste espagnol, sur son entourage et sur ses influences musicales dont elles permettent d'apprécier la variété.

        Herrn Kammersänger Richard Tauber Zur Erinnerung an seien I. Tonfilm: "Ich glaub nie mehr an eine Frau" (Das Dirnenlied) - Fotoalbum mit 48 großformatigen s/w Fotos

      Verleger nicht bekannt, 1930.. 1. und einzige Auflage (Einzelstück) 50 Seiten Ledereinband. Bei diesem Angebot handelt es sich um eine wahre Rarität. Es scheint sich um eine einmalige Anfertigung zu handeln, welche speziell für Richard Tauber gefertigt wurde. Anlass war dessen erster Tonfilm "Ich glaub nie mehr an eine Frau" aus dem Jahr 1930. Regie führte Max Reichmann. Diesen Film gibt es wohl nicht mehr, nur noch eine Tonaufzeichnung auf einer Schallplatte. Aber das habe ich nur recherchiert. Aus Unkenntnis über den wahren Preis, habe ich hier einen sehr hohen Preis gewählt. Auf Grund der scheinbaren Seltenheit, Rarität kann der Preis realistisch oder sogar zu billig sein. Es kann aber auch sein, dass ich das Teil völlig überschätze. Aus diesem Grund sind Preisvorschläge erwünscht.. Die Mappe besteht aus 48 s/w Fotografien, welche durchweg in einem tadellosen Zustand sind. Die Blätter, auf welche diese integriert sind, sind durchweg auch in einem altersentsprechend guten und sauberen Zustand. Die Blätter sind am Rand stärker gebräunt und auch etwas berieben. An den Ecken stellenweise etwas stärker. Aber alles keineswegs übermäßig. Vor allem die Fotos sind völlig schadfrei und es scheint sich um echte Fotos zu handeln, keine Abdrücke oder dergleichen. In der Mappe ist sonst nichts eingetragen. Keine Beschriftung, keine bedruckten Seiten, nichts. Rik2821

Sein Hauptwerk, die "Kulturgeschichte der Neuzeit" erschien nach mehrere Absagen durch andere Verleger in drei Bänden 1927-1931 mit großem Erfolg im Beck Verlag, der bis heute Friedells kulturgeschichtliche Werke herausgibt. Nach dem Machtantritt Hitlers 1933 konnte Friedell im Deutschen Reich nicht mehr publiziert werden. Deshalb erschien der erste Band der ebenfalls in 3 Bänden geplanten "Kulturgeschichte des Altertums" unter dem Titel "Kulturgeschichte Ägyptens und des Alten Orients" 1936 im Zürcher Helikon-Verlag. Bis zum 16. März 1938, als sich Friedell der drohenden Verhaftung nach dem "Anschluß" Österreichs durch den tödlichen Sprung aus dem Fenster der Gentzgasse 7 (vgl. Absenderstempel) entzog, arbeitete er am zweiten Band, der sich mit Griechenland beschäftigte. - Das fast vollendete Manuskript mit dem Arbeitstitel "Hellas und Rom" konnte nach Friedells Suizid zusammen mit dem Manuskript von "Die Reise mit der Zeitmaschine" (EA 1949 bei Piper) durch den in unserer Karte mit dem Freiexemplar bedachten Erwin Goldarbeiter, "einem ehemaligen Vertrauten Max Reinhardts, der in den letzten Jahren Friedell bei der Abwicklung seiner Verlagsangelegenheiten behilflich war", ins Ausland gebracht werden (vgl.: Bernhard Viel: Egon Friedell: Der geniale Dilettant.

      Im Selbstverlag des Komponisten Auslieferung und Bühnenvertrieb Edition Benno Balan, Berlin=Charlottenburg 4: [without PN]. [1930]. Folio. Original publisher's wrappers printed in blue. [i] (title), [ii] (list of characters, list of orchestral instruments, instructions for performance), [3]-140 pp. Facsimile of copyist's manuscript. Copyright notice to lower left corner of p. 3: "Copyright 1930 by Arnold Schönberg, Berlin." Printed note to lower right corner of last page of music: "Schrift und Druck Rokodruck, Berlin." Titling of upper wrapper identical with title except lacking imprint. Wrappers soiled; corners slightly chipped. . Second edition. Rufer (Engl.) pp. 58-60. Ringer p. 317. Tetsuo Satoh pp. 23-24. The manuscript on which the edition is based is lost. The first edition, from 1929, lacks the reference to Edition Benno Balan in the imprint and carries a typeset copyright notice dated 1929. It is also a facsimile, but is based on a different, partially autograph, manuscript. Max Blonda is a pseudonym of Schoenberg's (second) wife, Gertrud, née Kolisch (1898-1967). Von heute auf morgen is Schoenberg's first opera and also the first dodecaphonic opera by any composer. "For Schönberg it was the twelve-tone system that held the key to the future, and in 'Von heute auf morgen' he was seeking to prove that that key was not incompatible with popular success. The 1930 performances at the Frankfurt Opera and over the radio disappointed the composer. His hopes for popular success were not realized. Within two months of the premiere Schönberg was to pen the rather defensive essay 'My Public,' an essay in which he argues that 'expert judges'—principally conductors, performers, and others with influence in the musical world—are to blame for the lack of understanding of his music."

Original Softcover (publisher's plain wrappers) in protective Mylar and bespoke slipcase. Excellent condition of the book itself with some clear signs of external wear to the slipcase. Uncorrected proof of this unforgettable minor classic of 20th century fiction. The Bildungsroman of a sensitive ape as she develops herself to marriagable accomplishments for the wife of a missionary, and her disappointments with human society as she experiences it. Inscribed by Collier, "To Kenneth Marshall with many happy returns" on New Year's Eve in the year of publication. Very Rare ! While he had written some short stories during the period in which he was trying to find success as a poet, his career did not take shape until the publication of His Monkey Wife in 1930. It enjoyed a certain small popularity and critical approval that helped to sell his short stories. Biographer Richardson explained the literary context for the book: His Monkey Wife is the last among light early-twentieth-century fantasies that include G. K. Chesterton's The Man Who Was Thursday (1908), Max Beerbohm's Zuleika Dobson (1911), and Virginia Woolf's Orlando (1928). Collier's book, however, appeared immediately after the economic crash and the start of the Great Depression in 1929, when the tone of the literary and intellectual world darkened. While his novel was well received, it did not achieve the fame of the earlier fantasies. ... Much in this novel echoes, without Swift's bitterness, the contrast between Gulliver and the rational Houyhnhnms in Gulliver's Travels (1726). Collier's style, however, is playful; he borrows heavily from Joseph Conrad, parodies the style of Thomas De Quincey ... and otherwise sustains the light and artificial tone by literary borrowings throughout. As a private joke, Collier wrote a decidedly cool four-page review of His Monkey Wife, describing it as an attempt "to combine the qualities of the thriller with those of what might be called the decorative novel," and concluding with the following appraisal of the talents of its author: "From the classical standpoint his consciousness is too crammed for harmony, too neurasthenic for proportion, and his humor is too hysterical, too greedy, and too crude." Author Peter Straub has done the same with fake, negative reviews, in admiration of Collier. (Wikipedia)
