        THE SHEPHEARDES CALENDER; CONTEYNING TWELVE AEGLOGUES PROPORTIONABLE TO THE TWELVE MONETHES

      Cresset Press, London 1930 - 335 x 205 mm (13 1/8 x 8"). 5 p.l., xv-xxiii, [1], 133 pp., [1] leaf. No. 264 OF 350 COPIES on paper (and three on vellum). Original vellum-backed cream-colored silk covers, flat spine gilt lettered, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. In the original ivory printed dust jacket (later enhanced neatly with color). Additional title and 12 illustrations (headpieces) by John Nash, colored by stencil process (title page and headpiece for January with colors enlivened by a previous owner). Ransom, p. 8. Front panel of dust jacket missing a 3/8" portion halfway across the top and with a significant adjacent closed tear, minor soiling, other trivial imperfections, but without restoration and otherwise excellent; the volume itself in very fine condition inside and out. This appealing production from the Cresset Press is the earliest important work by Spenser, first published in 1579. Its 12 eclogues, which mostly take the form of dialogues among shepherds, deal with love, Queen Elizabeth, religion, right conduct, singing, and poetry. Although John Nash (1893-1977) was a remarkably versatile painter and illustrator, he is best remembered for his wood engravings, which grace a number of private press books. The uncommonly seen dust jacket is a bonus in its own right and for the protection it has provided the delicate silk boards, so easily soiled, but here remaining clean and bright. No. 264 OF 350 COPIES on paper (and three on vellum). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Savoy Cocktail Book

      London: Constable, 1930. First edition. Octavo, original half black cloth, pictorial endpapers. Illustrations by Gilbert Rumbold. In near fine condition. An exceptional example. Savoy Cocktail Book features 750 of Harry Craddock?'s most popular recipes. It is a fascinating record of the cocktails that set London alight at the time—and which are just as popular today. From Slings to Smashes, Fizzes to Flips, and featuring art deco illustrations, Harry Craddock was "the king of cocktail shakers," and The Savoy Cocktail Books contains humorous anecdotes on the origin of the cocktail and its purpose ("for the solace of man"), as well as "an elucidation of the Manners and Customs of people of quality in a period of some equality." "Behind every great bartender (literally) is a roughed-up, stained copy of The Savoy Cocktail Book...it's been an industry must-have since its first edition" (GQ).

The book aims to give a complete background of basic knowledge with which to pursue market activities, documenting important charting patterns and discussing trends, support, and resistance. "Schabacker was the first to make technical analysis and charting an organized discipline" (Linda Raschke).

        Don Quixote de la Mancha

      London: Nonesuch Press, 1930. Two octavo volumes, original full tan niger morocco, raised bands, maroon spine labels lettered in gilt, top edges rough gilt, pages uncut. With twenty-one color illustrations by E. McKnight Kauffer throughout text. Presentation inscription from Kauffer to Roger Fry on limitation page. Rubbing to spine ends and corners, boards lightly mottled. Nonesuch edition of Cervantes's great picaresque novel, limited to 1475 copies, with twenty-one color plates by E. McKnight Kauffer. Originally issued in two parts in 1605 and 1615, Don Quixote begins as a parody of chivalric romances, but expands to examine the whole of Spanish society through the adventures of the deluded Quixote and his long-suffering companion Sancho Panza. This edition follows the 1743 English translation of Motteux and Ozell: "A world of disorderly Notions, pick'd out of his Books, crouded into his Imagination; and now his Head was full of nothing but Inchantments, Quarrels, Battles, Challenges, Wounds, Complaints, Amours, Torments, and abundance of Stuff and Impossibilities." This copy is warmly inscribed by the illustrator, E. McKnight Kauffer: "for Roger Fry, without whose encouragement this book would not have been done -- E. McKnight Kauffer, 1930." The preeminent English art critic of his day, Fry was instrumental in promoting Kauffer's art through the Omega Workshops, the influential Bloomsbury design collective that Fry directed with Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant; in 1925, Fry contributed the introduction to the printed catalogue of Kauffer's modernist posters. A near-fine copy of the most influential work of Spanish literature, with an important English art historical association.

        Forty Famous Cocktails : Being a Compendium of Reliable Recipes Carefully Compiled For Use In This Arid Era Engraved with Humble Apologies to that Master Engraver John Held Jr [Title from recto]

      New York: Colonial Sales Corp, 1930. Two pieces of printed pictorial cardboard, glued together on three sides and with view windows cut on both sides, and with double-sided sliding cardboard insert with printed recipes. 9.5 cm. x 14 cm. The smaller and simultaneously printed version of the otherwise almost identical movable cocktail recipe book featuring humorous illustrations in the style of celebrated barroom artist John Held (engraved by John Boland), and an imaginative sliding display for the cocktail recipes. In this smaller edition, the eyes of the bartender are not punched out, and therefore do not show the many funny expressions included on the sliding card. The illustration on the verso of this piece is captioned, "The Road to Perdition or a Scene from the Back Room when Life Was Simple." The mention of "this arid era" in the title suggests a pre-repeal publication date. We've now handled a number of these, and this is the first we've seen to which a printer's slug advertising Martini & Rossi vermouth has been added to the sliding card. Light wear to cardboard edges, with additional wear to insert pull-tab at top, some light staining and color-fading, else near very good. Scarce.

        DAS ZAUBERBOOT

      SEIDMANN-FREUD, TOM. FREUD,TOM SEIDMANN. DAS ZAUBERBOOT. Berlin: Stuffer 1930 (1929 7-11 tausand). 4to (8 x 9 1/2"), cloth backed pictorial boards, light cover soil and a few internal spots else VG-fine and complete. This is a very rare MOVEABLE BOOK done by the niece of Sigmund Freud. Her moveable books were immediately hailed for their innovations, but because of her Jewish heritage, most copies of her books were destroyed and very few remain intact today. In this book, there are a variety of moveable pages including a revolving wheel and a Punch and Judy theatre. There is also a grid with cut-outs that enables the reader to develop 4 different stories from one page, and a clever tale that lets the reader make part of the illustrations disappear using special red paper. Hurlimann (p. 216-17) mentions these innovative books, remarkable not only for their moveable parts but for their integration of suitable text with artistic achievement.

Jedenfalls demonstriert Jarosch in den Zeichnungen seine Fertigkeiten als Architekt, indem er dem Betrachter die zwei Ebenen des Grundrisses, mit dem eigentlichen Bootshaus im Erdgeschoss und einer Wohnung im darüber liegenden Obergeschoss, vor Augen führt sowie die zugehörigen vier Außenwände. Das in Holzbauweise gedachte Gebäude mit niedrigem und oben flach gehaltenem Walmdach wirkt einfach und wird vor allem durch die allein nach funktionalen Gesichtspunkten angeordneten Wandöffnungen (diese in unterschiedlicher Größe) gegliedert. Besondere Akzente setzen Geländer, die die Außentreppen und Terrasse begrenzen. Lebhaft fühlt man sich an das nur ein Jahr früher von Konrad Wachsmann (1901-1980) errichtete Sommerhaus für Albert Einstein in Caputh erinnert. Durch die Darstellung des einfahrenden Segelboots wird die Einheit von Nutzung und Bauwerk auch visuell unterstrichen, Boot und Haus verschmelzen zu einer funktionalen Einheit. Dazu im Kontrast steht die Einrichtung des Wohnraumes im Obergeschoss, die auf drei Blaupausen dargestellt ist, mit Mobiliar im Stil des Art déco, darunter ein Buffet, ein Bücherregal und ein eigenwillig gestaltetes Sofa. Und auch die drei beigefügten Blaupausen eines Speisezimmers eines Nürnberger Stadthauses zeigen Jarosch als Entwerfer von aufwendigen Einzelmöbeln wie eines Buffets und einer Vitrine: Aufriss einer Wand des Speisezimmers (18 x 35,5 cm, Maßstab 1:20), Entwurf zu einem Buffet (20 x 33 cm, Maßstab 1:10) Entwurf zu einer Vitrine (20,5 x 27 cm, Maßstab 1:10). Bei all diesen Möbelentwürfen erweist er sich stark dem Art déco verpflichtet und damit prädestiniert für eine wohlhabende Auftraggeberschicht, die teure Materialien und schöne Oberflächen liebte, sie aber in einem schlichten und funktionalen Design verarbeitet sehen wollte. Einblick in Jaroschs Denken gibt der dem Bootshausprojekt beigefügte handschriftliche Text. Jarosch erörtert hier sein Projekt nämlich nicht im technischen Sinne, vielmehr entwickelt er einen architekturtheoretischen Überbau. Zunächst vergleicht er das Bootshaus mit einer Garage. Letztere gehorche allein dem Zweck und bilde somit eine "vorteilhafte Kulisse", um "die rassigen Formen und Linien" des Automobils nicht zu beeinträchtigen. Auto wie Segelboot hätten ihre "unzweideutigen Formen, aus dem Zweck entstanden, also schön." Die Schönheit des Zwecks, das "Zweckgefühl" liefe freilich bisweilen Gefahr, durch eine "spezielle Romatik" "vollkommen verleugnet" zu werden. Dazu zählten überdeutliche Anklänge an andere Baugattungen wie die Alpen- oder Fischerhütte, die doch mit dem Segelsport nichts zu tun hätten. Auch müsse das Zweckgefühl Rücksicht auf Nebensächlichkeiten nehmen, die mit der reinen Zweckform des Segelboots nur bedingt etwas zu tun haben. Gemeint sind notwendige Funktionen, die sich aus den Konventionen des Segelsports ergeben: Der Bedarf eines Umkleideraums, eines Wohn- und Essraums, um Gäste zu bewirten, einen Schlafraum, um bessere Witterung abzuwarten oder gar Urlaub "mit Kind und Kegel" hier zu verbringen. Diese Nebenächlichkeiten überlagerten bisweilen gar das Hauptthema. Dennoch müsse sich die Architektur des Bootshauses aus dem Zweck und der Kultur, mithin auch der Mode (alles in Weiß), des Segelsports entwickeln. Jorg Janosch wurde am 20. März 1905 in Erlangen geboren und verstarb am 20. April 1980 in Baden bei Wien. Nach dem Besuch der Realschule in Nürnberg ging er zunä [Attributes: Hard Cover]

A little wear to head and tail of spine, touch of foxing to prelims. An exceptionally nice copy. First and limited edition, number 29 of 150 copies signed by the author. This is the the only substantial poetry collection of Brian Howard (1905-1958), one of the Eton Arts Society group with Harold Acton, Oliver Messel, Anthony Powell, and Henry Yorke; at Oxford he knew Evelyn Waugh and Waugh, writing later that Howard "dazzled me rather 25 years ago", drew on him for the character of Ambrose Silk in Put Out More Flags and Anthony Blanche in Brideshead Revisited. There is a potted biography of him in The Diaries of Evelyn Waugh, edited by Michael Davie: "peripatetic life in Europe; early and articulate anti-Fascist; occasional reviewer for New Statesman; RAF aircraftman in World War II; committed suicide by an overdose of drugs [following the death of his lover]; buried Nice cemetery. A notorious and extravagant aesthete-homosexual, described by Waugh, borrowing Lady Caroline Lamb's words, as 'mad, bad, and dangerous to know'".

        ORIGINAL 1930 TYPED LETTER, SIGNED (re: The Maltese Falcon, The Glass Key & The Thin Man)

      1930 - Hammett, Dashiell. ONE PAGE TYPED LETTER, SIGNED ["Sincerely, Dashiell Hammett"]. 135 East 38th Street, New York, April 21st, 1930. Highly desirable unpublished early letter from one of Hammett's most creatively fruitful years in which he makes mention of all three of his greatest novels. To "Dear Mr. Hammett" (no relation despite the shared surname), it reads: "Thanks a lot for the latest of your always kind notes. The Falcon seems to be going over pretty well and I think Earl Boothe's going to produce it on the stage in the Fall if I can get time off from the current book to do the dramatization. The next book, 'The Glass Key' is scheduled for publication in September or October, and then 'The Thin Man' and 'The Darkened Face' in February and August, 1931. Beyond that deponent saith not. Best of luck to you with the poetry and otherwise." The letter, written only two months after the book publication of THE MALTESE FALCON has some irony to it as Dashiell Hammett's precision in rattling off titles and publication dates bore no reality to what came to pass. THE GLASS KEY wouldn't be published until 1931; THE THIN MAN didn't appear until 1934. As for "The Darkened Face" -- there is a fragment of a manuscript with that title at the Harry Ransom Center, University of Texas at Austin. It now appears to have been a planned novel which never came to full fruition. Nor did Hammett write a stage version of THE MALTESE FALCON for Earl Boothe; instead the novel was almost immediately adapted to film, released by Warner Brothers Studios as a pre-code 1931 crime drama full of sexual innuendo starring Ricardo Cortez and Bebe Daniels. The Selected Letters of Dashiell Hammett 1921-1960 (edited by Richard Layman) were indeed "selected from nearly one thousand letters" yet only a mere four letters date - as this letter does -- from 1930, the year Hammett published THE MALTESE FALCON. Apart from two neat folds, the letter is in Fine, crisp condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
