        Wishham Maid

      [Boston]: John Andrew & Son, 1930. Photogravure after Edward Curtis, printed by John Andrew & Son. Very good condition, apart from a faint blindstamp to the lower right corner. Image area 12 x 15 3/4 inches. Sheet size 18 1/8 x 21 7/8 inches. An evocative 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) 'Clad in her deerskin dress of the plains and her basketry hat of the coast, the girl pauses on the grim lava rocks above the Dalles, looking out across the thundering rapids, perhaps observing the activities of her friends in the village Wasko.' (Curtis) 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.

        Salem [Schule Schloss Salem]

      Salem, Germany: The Salem School, 1930. First Edition. First Edition. Publisher's half vellum with decorative gold string over textured handmade paper. An album produced in a small limited edition, targeting American supporters for the purpose of raising funds for the then-new school. Though today the school is one of the most elite in all of Europe, and with several locations, it had virtually no funding at the time of this volume's publication. Kurt Hahn and Karl Reinhardt founded the Schule Schloss Salem (or Salem School) in 1920 with the support of Prince Maximilian of Baden, introducing an "education reform" which encouraged progressive methods, developing the unique talents of each student. The focus was not on academic performance but on the development of character. Hahn was a key figure in the development of progressive and experiential education, strongly influencing many modern-day alternative educational institutions. He also founded the Atlantic College, Outward Bound, the United World College, and other major worldwide institutions. Included are sections on "The Seven Laws of Salem," "Salem Certificate of Maturity," and "Reproduction of Kurt Hahn's Film Lecture." The "film lecture" includes 49 original mounted black and white photographs in various sizes showing Prince Max von Baden, the faculty, the students, and many shots of the school. Some of the images depict students engaged in activities such as field hockey, skiing, jogging, dancing, archery, or performing a play. Others show students at work and in the classroom. A rare volume. The text for this example is in English, and though there was presumably a German-language version produced as well, we have never encountered another copy. Minor soil and some sunning and minor foxing to the boards, slight rubbing to the spine. Some rippling to the leaves around some photographs due to aging of the glue, photographs not affected. Edges of a few photographs slightly oxidized. In Very Good plus condition overall.

(Theodore Roosevelt, Foreword to Volume I) 'The nature of the shore and the height of the water level sometimes combine to make dip-netting impossible. Recourse is then had to the double-pointed spear, the socketed barbs of which are connected to the shaft by strong cords, so that when a fish is struck and its struggles detach the barbs from the prongs it is held by a hook and line.'

        Treatise on Money

      1930 - KEYNES, John Maynard. A Treatise on Money. London: Macmillan, 1930. Two volumes. Octavo, original blue cloth, original dust jackets. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $7500.First edition of Keynesâ&#128;&#153; important work on monetary theory, in rare original dust jackets."The world-wide slump after 1929 prompted Keynes to attempt an explanation of, and new methods for controlling the vagaries of the trade-cycle" (PMM 423). "In 1930, Keynes brought out his heavy, two-volume Treatise on Money, which effectively set out his Wicksellian theory of the credit cycle. In it, the rudiments of a liquidity preference theory of interest are laid out and Keynes believed it would be his magnum opusâ&#128;¦[however, criticism was swift and extreme] and the Treatise led to the formation of a reading group, known as 'the circus,' composed of young Cambridge economists Richard Kahn and othersâ&#128;¦ Kahn dutifully delivered reports of the Circus's discussions to Keynes, who subsequently began revising his ideas. One resulting criticism of the Treatise was that it failed to provide a theory of the determination of output and employment as a wholeâ&#128;" a particular pertinent question given the huge amount of unemployment at the time" (History of Economic Thought). As a result of the controversy over the Treatise on Money, and the subsequent discussions and debates that arose from it, Keynes produced his greatest work, The General Theory, which literally began a revolution in American economics. AMEX 254. Books near-fine, with a single tear to head of each spine and slight toning to spines. Rare dust jackets with expert restoration. A desirable copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        My Early Life.

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited,, 1930. A Roving Commission. Octavo. Original dark pink cloth, titles to spine and front board gilt, publisher's device to boards in blind. Frontispiece and 15 plates from photographs, maps and plans. Spine sunned, the presentation leaf somewhat browned, a few minor spots, a very good copy. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy to his South African friend Sir Abraham ("Abe") Bailey, inscribed by the author on the blank preceding the half-title, "To Abe from Winston. Oct 15. 1930". A superb association: Churchill first met Abe Bailey (1864?-1940) during the Second Boer War, the events of which feature memorably as the climax to this book. Bailey, who divided his time between South Africa and London, remained a lifelong friend of Churchill's, acting as his financial adviser and quiet political promoter. The meeting of 3 December 1916 which led to Lloyd George succeeding Herbert Asquith as prime minister was held in Bailey's London home, and Bailey urged Lloyd George to have Churchill in his new government. A man of considerable wealth and influence, Bailey continued to meet and correspond with Churchill throughout his life. Churchill's daughter Diana married Bailey's eldest son, John, in 1932; although the union proved short lived, this did not alter their friendship. Churchill does not mention Bailey by name in the book, but short pencil strokes in the margins suggest that Bailey read the book with attention, particularly the later chapters dealing with South Africa.

        Labels (Inscription By D.B.Wyndham Lewis)

      A First UK printing published by Duckworth in 1930. 8vo dark blue cloth boards with silver stamped title and author name on the spine, 206pp with seven illustrations and a pictorial dust jacket. The book is a detached commentary on Waugh?s brief honeymoon with his wife, also called Evelyn during 1929.The BOOK is in VERY GOOD condition with the boards being clean with some sunning to the spine and very light bumping to the corners and spine tips. Internally there is an inscription on the front free endpaper which reads: 'To Ronnie and Mary, with love,from Wyndham, Christmas 1930'.The edge of the text block has some foxing spots and there is some scattered foxing throughout the text in places.The distinctive original cream WRAPPER is unclipped and is in VERY GOOD condition.It shows the original price of 8/6 NET and is now protected in a removable Brodart archival cover. There are spots of foxing particularly on the verso of the jacket and on the rear flap.The spine is age toned and the fore edges discoloured.There is a 60mm split in the middle of the rear shoulder of the spine and a 40mm tear at the bottom of the front shoulder. There is also a 2cm tear across the middle of the spine. The top and bottom edges are chipped with a little loss to the fore edge corners and spine tips.There is also a 7mm x 15mm section missing on the bottom front right-hand corner.There are also a number of small tears of 2-5mm top and bottom and two larger 2-3 cm tears top and bottom.The wrapper has the VERY RARE ?Recommended by the Book Society? Sticker applied to the front panel. This was used instead of the usual wrap-around band in order to blend in with the distinctive design of the wrapper?s front cover.The inscription is an intriguing one.It is possible that the book was given as a Christmas gift by the author D B Wyndham Lewis.We have however been unable to identify the recipients of the inscription.Despite the faults described, this copy presents well.

        [Original Typed Letter, Signed ("Virginia"), to Quentin Bell].

      Monks House, Rodmell. June 8th [nd. but pencil notation indicates c. 1930].. Two pages, on recto and verso of quarto (26.5 x 21 cm.) sheet, previously folded into quarters for mailing. Small break at centerfold and closed tear mid-way down right side of obverse, two small tabs of linen mounting tape adhered to edges in upper quadrants, recto quite sun-faded, darkened ande a bit discolored along folds, pencil hand corrections to reversed letters or omitted words; an ill-kept but intact and remarkable letter. An intimate, newsy, and highly amusing family letter from Aunt Virginia to her nephew, "My dear Quentin," that starts with a bang, "I was just sitting down to strike the keys when fate plunged me into utter disorder. The kidneys. The cook. Yes Nelly [Nellie Boxall] had an operation. I drove through London in an ambulance, half the glass is black so that you see life [inserted] passing like a sepulchral procession. Then I saw doctors and sisters of mercy; and brothers and Aunts. Enough. I cant write when I must be [cross outs and insertion] planning dinner. How any woman with a family ever put pen to paper I cannot fathom. Always the bell rings and the baker calls." Woolf relates how her sister Vanessa Bell, "Nessa," produced a old French lady of dubious health and skills to replace the cook, and the incident of a non sequitor argument that results in lost keys to the [Gordon Square] flat. She informs Quentin that "We are now at Rodmell for Whitsun, and the Austrians are gliding over our heads like gulls. Yes, this is a fact. They have tents on the downs and prove that one can fly up and down Asheham Hill without an engine. As I never doubted it myself, I take little stock of it." This is in reference to very enthusiastic Sussex gliding, or sail plane, club ?- gliding being all the rage in the 1930s, it was being practiced all over the UK by various clubs whose members numbered in the hundreds and enjoyed a membership that included both men and women. After a bit of village business, she relates the news of the family cocker spaniel, a gift of Vita Sackville-West, "Pinka has five black pups ?- the sixth she sat on, conveniently, for to tell the truth five black bitches in my room are enough." More family news, "Julian [Bell, Quentin?'s older brother] is coming to Charleston with a troupe next week. And they shot the senior tutor of Kings last week ?- Mr Potts did, as Lydia [Keynes] says must happen, when young men have no morals and wear coloured socks." The "senior tutor?" was Alexander Wollaston, the naturalist, ethnologist, and explorer of tropical mountain regions. He was elected a Fellow of Kings College in 1920, and on 3 June 1930 was shot dead in his college rooms by a demented undergraduate named Potts, who killed himself immediately afterwards. VW fills Quentin in on the further doings of the Keyneses, Roger Fry and his Aunt Vanessa with regard to a troublesome art show, from which Fry has resigned, and looks forward to each friend bringing her up to speed on the outcome, "How I adore my friends to do that ?- and then they come over and confide in us; what fun it will be; Nessa thinks they will not dare draw water from the well. She thinks their friendship is what she calls a cruche cassée." She tells Quentin that Vita Sackville-West's book is selling so well "that Leonard and I are hauling in money like pilchards from a net. We sell about 800 every day. The Edwardians it is called." Woolf asks her nephew if he is at his family's French retreat in Cassis, "Basking, I suppose, and sipping vermouth at M. Somebodies, while the waves dont break, and the sardine boats come in at midnight," and asks for a letter from him describing his "life from the inside." In closing, she laments she hasn't actually said what she wanted to say, and that the "snap- snap of the typewriter frightens me as the snap of a turtle frightens fish. So good bye. [In ink:] Your loving aunt Virginia.?" LETTERS, Vol. IV (1979) 2189.

      London & New York, 1930. [Christie, Agatha] Westmacott, Mary. GIANT'S BREAD. NY: Doubleday, Doran, 1930. First American Edition, first printing. A Very Good, firm copy in original publisher's cloth, illustrated title labels to spine and front cover. SIGNED BY AGATHA CHRISTIE on the front-free endpaper using her pseudonym.

INSCRIBED BY AGATHA CHRISTIE on the front-free endpaper using her pseudonym: "To Charlotte, with love from Mary Westmacott." [With:] [Christie, Agatha] Westmacott, Mary. ABSENT IN THE SPRING. London: Collins, 1944. First Edition. A Very Good copy married to a Very Good example of the scarce original publisher's dust jacket (price-clipped), ASSOCIATION COPY. From the collection (book-label to each front paste-down) of Charlotte "Carlo" Fisher (1895-1976). Charlotte Fisher, initially hired to serve as nanny to Christie's daughter Rosalind, was pressed into service as a part-time shorthand secretary during the earliest days of the author's career. To quote from Christie's autobiography, Charlotte Fisher was "friend and secretary and governess and dogsbody and everything else for many years. [She] is still one of my best friends." The six "Mary Westmacott" novels (of which we offer five) were those which Agatha Christie wrote to explore feelings that had no place in her mystery tales. Quoting Christie's daughter Rosalind at the time of her mother's centenary in 1947: "The Mary Westmacott novels have been described as romantic novels but I don't think that is really a fair assessment. They are not 'love stories' in the general sense of the term, and they certainly have no happy endings. They are, I believe, about love in some of its most powerful and destructive forms." Agatha Christie wasn't in the habit of inscribing her non-mystery novels; until Carlo Fisher's copies were discovered, contemporary presentation copies were unknown and we can find no auction records for any other contemporaneously signed or inscribed Mary Westmacott books. Here we have five "Carlo Fisher" copies, all with her book-label and four of which are either signed or inscribed. A unique opportunity for the Christie collector to say the least. More information or photos on request.. Signed by Author. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        Fish Shows - Apsaroke

      Boston: Suffolk Engraving Company, 1930. Photogravure after Edward Curtis, printed by the Suffolk Engraving Company, Japon paper. Very good 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 1) Born around 1848, Fish Shows or 'Buusish' was a gallant Apsaroke warrior, who first fought under the renowned chief Red Bear against the Sioux. According to Curtis, in "stature and in vigor the Apsaroke, or Crows, excelled all other tribes of the Rocky Mountain region, and were surpassed by none in bravery and in devotion to the supernatural forces that gave them strength against their enemies." (Volume IV) Originally planters from the upper Midwest, they inhabited the Plains and Prairies region of the United States, where they became hunters and skilled horsemen. 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.

        Aquatint, "Bread Line"

      ca 1930-35. A spectacular large print demonstrating Groth's early mastery of aquatint technique -- a Bowery street scene peopled with the ghost-like figures of Depression-era down-and-outers, typical of Groth's social-realist work during the Great Depression. Though best remembered as a wartime sketch-artist and book illustrator (he produced a number of titles for The Limited Editions Club, including the widely-praised LEC edition of Erich Maria Remarque's All Quiet on the Western Front ), Groth began his career as a printmaker and cartoonist very much in the social-realist mold, publishing some of his earliest work in such left-wing forums as The New Masses and PM. He was also the first Art Director at Esquire, which was founded in 1933. Groth's mastery as a printmaker is on display in these early works, which manage to convey a simultaneous sense of urgency and delicacy which would become the hallmark of his battlefield sketches made during WW2 and the Korean War. Groth's Depression-era work has remained scarce in the marketplace, with only a few examples of his social-realist prints at auction in the past twenty years. The current example is from Groth's personal archive, which we acquired in 2013. Original aquatint. Sheet size 49.5cm x 67.5cm (ca 19-3/4" x 26-1/2"); image area 45cm x 61cm. Signed and numbered (1/50) in pencil, lower right, titled lower left. Slight soil to verso and to margins; a strong, clear and clean impression.

        Wolf Lies Down - Apsaroke

      Boston: Suffolk Engraving Company, 1930. Photogravure after Edward Curtis, printed by the Suffolk Engraving Company, Japon paper. Very good condition apart from a mild surface abrasion in the top left corner of the plate mark. 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.

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) A member of the Never Packs Game clan, Wolf Lies Down was a Mountain Crow leader, who fought against the Sioux in the Battle of Pryor Creek near Billings, Montana in 1860. According to Curtis, in "stature and in vigor the Apsaroke, or Crows, excelled all other tribes of the Rocky Mountain region, and were surpassed by none in bravery and in devotion to the supernatural forces that gave them strength against their enemies."

        The Moose Hunter - Cree

      Boston: Suffolk Engraving Company, 1930. Photogravure after Edward Curtis, printed by the Suffolk Engraving Company, Japan paper. Very good 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 "The Birds of America" surpasses Curtis's 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) "Cree hunters are masters of the art of imitating, by means of a birch bark trumpet, the call of a moose of either sex, and thus luring within gunshot an animal seeking a mate during the rutting season." (Curtis, List of Large Plates Supplementing Volume Eighteen ) Close relations of the Ojibwa, the Crees were the chief tribe in Canada and one of the largest in North America. They inhabited an extensive western region north of the prairies and south of the Peace River and were comprised of two principal divisions, the Wood and Plains Cree, which consisted of numerous individual bands. 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.
