        THE HAMMERSMITH MURDERS

      Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc., 1930., 1930. First edition. Pseudonym of Zenith Jones Brown, who also wrote using the pseudonym of Leslie Ford. Neat inked non-authorial gift inscription on the front fly leaf, else a fine, bright copy in a price-clipped dust jacket with two small rubs to the front panel and a tiny chip to the bottom edge of the front cover. "A man is being murdered at 16 Caithness Road, is the cryptic message received by the Commissioner of the C. I. D. in an envelope postmarked HAMMERSMITH. Inspector Bull traveled to 16 Caithness Road and found a man who had just died, but the doctor said his death was caused by tetanus. A curious fact uncovered by the Inspector was that the dead man's father had been killed quite recently in a bus accident and that his daughter had been present at both events. From this beginning, two more murders and a series of robberies occur before the criminal is finally captured while preparing to commit the most terrible murder of all. An early Crime Club and Haycraft/Queen title. Interestingly this dust jacket appears in full color in the middle of Ellen Nehr's "Doubleday Crime Club Compendium 1928-1991," reserved for a showing of Crime Club vintage dust jackets.

        Moby Dick or The Whale

      Chicago: The Lakeside Press,, 1930. Illustrated by Rockwell Kent. 3 volumes, quarto. Original black cloth over bevelled boards, decoration to the upper boards and titles to spines in silver, top edges stained black, others uncut. With the aluminium slipcase. Illustrated throughout by Rockwell Kent. An excellent set, largely unopened; included is a Rockwell Kent postage stamp, an original proof for one of the illustrations, and a Moby Dick six cent first day postal cover First Rockwell Kent edition, limited to 1,000 sets. Presentation copy from the illustrator, inscribed on the front free endpaper of volume I: "To Ada M. Prasse with the illustrators regards. Rockwell Kent 1930"; and with the discreet book stamp of Lynn Prasse Bittel in each volume. One of the finest editions of Melville's masterpiece and one of the great American illustrated books of the 20th century. In 1926 Rockwell Kent (1882?-1971), then just beginning to establish his fame as an artist, was approached by R. R. Donnelley and Sons to illustrate a new edition of Richard Henry Dana's Two Years Before the Mast. Kent demurred, suggesting Moby Dick instead. Kent was given complete freedom to design and illustrate the three-volume set. The resulting work has been hailed as a masterpiece of 20th-century book illustration and credited with reviving public interest in a sublime but difficult novel.

        MOBY-DICK OR THE WHALE

      The Lakeside Press, Chicago 1930 - 301 x 217 mm (11 3/4 x 8 1/2"). Three volumes. ONE OF 1,000 COPIES. Original publisher's black cloth decorated and titled in silver, one quarter of the leaves UNOPENED. Housed in fine later dark blue folding cloth box. With more than 250 large and small woodcut illustrations by Rockwell Kent. "The Artist and the Book" 140; Lewis, p. 145; Zigrosser, p. 62. Backstrips slightly and evenly sunned, tiny signs of wear at top of the spines of first two volumes, negligible to light illustration offset, otherwise a very fine copy, the cloth entirely clean, and with no signs of internal use. Not considering the missing aluminum slipcase, this is a beautiful copy of one of the handful of great American illustrated books of the last 100 years. In "The 20th Century Book," John Lewis calls Kent's "Moby Dick" nothing short of "a stupendous piece of illustration." Lewis says that "there is a mystic streak that runs through [Kent's] work, enabling him, if not to match Melville's magnificent prose, at least to give some pictorial substance to this allegory." A painter and illustrator with transcendentalist and mystical tendencies, Rockwell Kent (1882-1971) spent much of his career liiving in, visiting, and producing images of rural or remote locations. His paintings of Maine, Alaska, Newfoundland, and Tierra del Fuego helped establish a reputation sufficient to encourage the publisher R. R. Donnelley to approach Kent in 1926 with the request to illustrate an edition of Richard Henry Dana's "Two Years Before the Mast." Kent suggested "Moby Dick" instead, the publisher wisely agreed, and when our limited edition appeared, it sold out immediately (a Random House trade edition was also very well received). Although certainly not obscure, "Moby Dick" was surprisingly less well known at the time of our publication than it is today, and the popularity of the Kent illustrated edition was significant in reinforcing the novel as the classic it is now considered. Because this copy lacks the original aluminum slipcase, it has one obvious shortcoming, but as an extremely well-preserved unopened copy, it is intended to represent a bargain at the price we've set.

Spines a touch faded, extremities slightly rubbed and bumped, a few mild scuff marks to boards, minor foxing to endpapers and edges; Volume I with some minor wear to one corner and light dampstaining affecting the rear board and the fore margin of the final 30 pages. A very good set. First edition, first impression, of the first of Keynes's major contributions to economic theory, his most comprehensive work on monetary theory. It anticipates many of the ideas of the General Theory, which it immediately preceded and by which it has been perhaps unfairly overshadowed.

        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.. Signed by Author. Fine.

        HISTORY OF THE PELOPONNESIAN WAR

      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.

        ROOSEVELT. THE STORY OF A FRIENDSHIP, 1880 - 1919

      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.
