        Street Haunting

      San Francisco: The Westgate Press, 1930 Limited edition of 500 copies. Signed by Woolf on the limitation page in her signature purple ink. Bound in the publisher's crushed blue Morocco over gray paper-covered boards stamped in a blue and yellow lattice pattern, spine lettered in gilt. Very good, with some wear and rubbing to the extremities, light toning to the spine and board edges, small light stain to top corner of the endpapers, bookseller's plate to the rear pastedown, bright and fresh interior. A pleasing copy, signed by the author. Street Haunting is an essay in which Virginia Woolf discusses one of her favorite pastimes: walking around the streets of London. Woolf, who often walked around London to find inspiration and to cheer herself up during bouts of depression, writes, "That is true: escape is the greatest of pleasures; street haunting in the winter is the greatest of adventures." The text begins with the author devising a reason to venture out into London, which, in this case, is to find a pencil. However, like many of her works, Street Haunting's beauty stems from Woolf's eloquent descriptions of everyday human interactions, locations, and emotions; the essay is less about finding a pencil than Woolf's narrative about one of her favorite activities.. Signed by Author. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        The Theory of Interest; as determined by Impatience to spend income and Opportunity to invest it

      New York: The Macmillan Company,, 1930. Octavo. Original dark blue fine-ribbed cloth, spine lettered in gilt and with single gilt rules at head and tail, front cover blocked in blind. With 3 folding tables. Printed errata slip tipped-in at page vii. Boards slightly at upper edge, occasional minor foxing; an excellent copy in the price-clipped jacket with toned spine. First edition, first printing, of Fisher's Theory of Interest, a revised version of his earlier book The Rate of Interest (1907). Dedicated to John Rae and Böhm-Bawerk, it is a further development of their ideas: "its greatness as a book lies wholly in its outstanding pedagogic qualities ... [which] amounted to the demonstration that the real rate of interest is determined by both demand and supply, by the demand for production and consumption loans on the one hand and the supply of savings on the other" (Blaug, Great Economists before Keynes, p. 79).

        A Map of Berkeley, Oakland, & Alameda. Pictorial envelope title:This is a Section of the Map of Alameda County showing Some of the Early Histories of Oakland, Berkeley, Alameda and Environs with Special References to the Flora & Fauna of this most colorfu

      Berkeley, CA.: The Sather Gate Book Shop.. No date. Ca. 1930?. Color pictographic / pictorial map poster, 34 1/2 by 42 3/4 inches folding, professionally mounted on linen. Infill painting of little loss at fold intersections, infill of pinhole at each corner, only visible on the closest of inspections. Bright and clean. Together with the COLOR PICTORIAL ENVELOPE into which the poster was originally folded (tears and little paper loss to edges). Fabulous Art Deco style map by Michael Baltekal Goodman, notable for its brilliant color and striking design. The minimalist design of the street layout at the centre of the map is in stark contrast to the blue pattern of the sea at lower left and the rich greens, reds and oranges of the inland area at upper right. The names of several of the main streets are featured in scrolls, also historical events and important places such as Oakland Municipal Airport. Many buildings are featured in elevations; meanwhile vessels, ancient and contemporary, sail the harbour. Wind cherubs at the corners hark back to ancient maps as does the mythical sea creature at lower right. In the elaborate border are vignette images of historial events. The map was produced in collaboration with Eugene (Eugen) Neuhaus, the California painter and teacher. At the centre of the upper border a quotation proclaims the glory of San Francisco in the westward push of the nation: the best is last; it seems likely that the artist mapmaker had the intention of making this map of San Francisco the most glorious in scale and color of the several maps of American cities that had been published in the late 1920s under the influence of MacDonald Gill's Wonderground map. .

      1930. Oblong folio. Yellow and blue cloth over boards with (worn) embossed crest of Camden (New Jersey) High School. Disbound. A well worn scrapbook of mementos compiled by dance marathon contestant Mel Hildebrand. Much of the material has become detached from the pages where they were mounted, but seemingly all of it is present, with many additional items laid in. Overall fair condition, although the detached photos and scraps are usually near fine. An album by a participant in one of the more curious fads and crazes of the Great Depression. While an occasional dancer's photo will appear on the market, very little primary source material and only a few printed sources for this activity are ever offered for sale. .

        Egil's Saga

      Cambridge: The University Press,, 1930. Done into English out of the Icelandic with an introduction, notes, and an essay on some principles of translation. Octavo. Original red cloth, spine lettered in gilt, top edge red. With the dust jacket. 2 maps. Spine a little faded, minor foxing to edges. An excellent copy in the scarce jacket that has toned spine. First Eddison edition, first impression. With the bookplate of Walter de la Mare to the front pastedown, and inscribed by the author to him on the front free endpaper: "Dear Mr. de la Mare, I hope that you will honour me by accepting, as from one frequenter of desert islands to another, this book. I speak of my share in it: for the great Saga itself, whose portrait I have rashly tried to paint, & to frame, can only confer honour upon anybody connected with it, living or dead. So at least it seems to me, after five years' living at close quarters with it. Yours very truly, E. R. Eddison."

        The Works

      New York: Doubleday, Doran & Co.,, 1930. The Crowborough Edition. 24 volumes, octavo. Recent brown crushed morocco, raised bands to spines, titles and central tools to compartments gilt, single frames to boards gilt, top edges gilt, others untrimmed, marbled endpapers. Photogravure frontispiece portrait by Pirie MacDonald to Volume I. Occasional unopened folds. Tissue guard in Volume I partially loose, light dampstains along lower gutter and margin of the text block of a few volumes. Otherwise an excellent set. First complete collected edition, number 663 of 760 numbered sets signed by the author in volume I. The Crowborough edition—named after the Sussex town where Doyle's home, Windlesham, was located—has double the number of volumes of the Author's Edition of 1903. Doyle had already signed sheets for it but his illness and death on 7 July 1930 prevented him seeing final publication of the work, and so it belongs to that select category, the posthumous signed limited edition. The introductions are reprinted from the Author's Edition, and the text is set from the existing editions without any corrections.
