        Edith Mary Lawrence (1890-1973) - Signed 1930 Watercolour, The.

      1930 - Edith Mary Lawrence (1890-1973) - Signed Original 1930 Watercolour. A fine modernist picture by the listed artist Edith Mary Lawrence. Signed in pencil to lower and the location is inscribed on the reverse. Signed. On wove. Condition is typical for a picture of this age including some mild discolouration and pin holes to margins.Provenance: From the Estate of Edith Lawrence Born in Surrey in 1890. Lawrence was a painter, designer, printmaker and teacher. She attended the Slade School of Art from 1910-14, where she was a prizewinning student. She went on the spend a period of time in St. Ives and returned to the Slade in 1916 where she studied under the Canadian born artist Percyval Tudor Hart and also began exhibiting at the Royal Academy and New English Art Club. In 1917 she took up a teaching position at Runston Hill School and in 1920 she met Claude Flight, the founder of the Grosvenor School of Modern Art. In 1925 she moved into Claude Flight's studio and the two shared an exhibition of textiles and linocuts at the Redfern Gallery in 1926. In 1927 they set up an interior decorating business trying out different methods of linocut, wallpaper, wall hangings and textiles. Edith spent many summers with Claude at his Neolithic chalk cave in the banks of the Seine at Chantemesle, that he had purchased for 300 francs after his time in France during WW1. Here he taught the art of the linocut at informal summer schools. During WWII Claude and Edith lived in London working from their studio off Baker Street. Later fleeing from the blitz they moved to a cottage in Donhead St Andrew. She spent much of her later life at Worth Matravers, the surrounding area becoming a source of inspiration for many of her paintings. In 1973, the year of her death Edith held a solo exhibition at the University of Hull, which was later followed by a memorial exhibition in the same year at the Parkin Gallery dedicated to both Edith and Claude.

        RUBÁIYÁT OF OMAR KHAYYÁM

      London: George G. Harrap & Co, 1930. No. 559 OF 750 COPIES for England (and 500 for America) signed by Pogany. This is an attractively bound and illustrated edition of an enduring classic involving a Persian text, an English translator, and a Hungarian illustrator. The text is an uncertain but beautiful amalgam of the Medieval and the 19th century. Although we know that Omar Khayyám was an 11th century astrologer and mathematician, we are less certain about his poetic accomplishments, and very unsure if the text here was his work. What we do know is that the poetry is early, that it may have been Omar's, that it was translated into English in 1859 by Edward FitzGerald (1809-83), and that this lush and evocative translation has become a widely acclaimed work whose popularity has endured to the present day. First published anonymously, this translation is the chief work of FitzGerald, whose great wealth permitted him to devote his entire adult life to literature, especially translation. The present deluxe edition features cinematic illustrations by the Hungarian-born Pogany (1882-1955), who was especially drawn to exotic subjects, and interpreted the "Rubaiyat" in pictures several times. The illustrations here are less impressionistic that earlier renditions, and have a more modern aethestic with Art Deco influences. Pogany immigrated to America in 1914, where he found success as an illustrator and set designer for the Metropolitan Opera and Broadway productions. The poem affixed to the endpaper praises the poet's "stream of balm and music . . . made richer still" by "Old Fitz." It is the work of solicitor, critic, and poet Theodore Watts-Dunton (1832-1914), whose greatest contribution to literature was his friendship to Algernon Swinburne, whom he rescued from alcoholism and lived with for 30 years.. 270 x 205 mm. (10 5/8 x 8"). 171 pp. [2] leaves.With introduction by George Saintsbury. No. 559 OF 750 COPIES for England (and 500 for America) signed by Pogany. Excellent teal crushed morocco, floral medallion in gilt and colors on upper cover, raised bands, gilt titling, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, other edges untrimmed. With black and white designs in the text, black and white mounted headpieces, 12 mounted color plates, all by Pogany, and AN ORIGINAL ETCHING SIGNED BY THE ARTIST. Front pastedown with ex-libris of H. L. Hoover; front free endpaper with ownership inscription of M. W. Hall dated 1941 and with mounted typescript of poem praising the poet and the translator by Theodore Watts-Dunton. Main text printed on recto only. Spine and edges of board faintly faded, corners slightly rubbed, one plate with tiny crease to one corner, isolated faint spots of marginal foxing, otherwise a very fine copy, the binding lustrous, and the text clean and bright, with very generous untrimmed margins. This is an attractively bound and illustrated edition of an enduring classic involving a Persian text, an English translator, and a Hungarian illustrator. The text is an uncertain but beautiful amalgam of the Medieval and the 19th century.

        The Castle. Translated from the German by Willa and Edwin Muir.

      London Martin Secker 1930 - First edition in English, 8vo., xii, 450, [2]pp., with half title, ink ownership to front free endpaper, publisher's blue cloth, lettered in gilt, a trifle sunned at extremities, spotting to fore-edge, dust-jacket, superb professional restoration to head and base of spine and corners, otherwise very bright indeed. This is the first English translation of any of Kafka's books, preceding English editions of The Trial and Metamorphosis by some seven years, making it by far the rarer of the titles. First published in German in 1926, The Castle is the last and longest work of Franz Kafka (1883-1924), written in the final two years of his life but left unfinished at his death. Kafka's novel adapts the mediæval grail narrative, replacing the quest for the grail with his protagonist's surreal struggle against a secluded and secretive bureaucracy of the sort encountered by the author in the years shortly after the fall of the Habsburg monarchy. Kafka's intended interpretation of this novel has remained the subject of debate; this first English edition chooses to focus on the text's religious symbolism, with some critics equating the attempts to reach the castle with a search for salvation, rather than the partially autobiographical nature of the book, which Kafka began in the first person. This translation is drawn from the first German edition, including the posthumous alterations made by Kafka's confidante Max Brod in preparation for publication.

        My Early Life

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1930. First edition, first printing. Full leather. This is the first edition, first printing, first state of Churchill's autobiography, finely bound in dark plum half morocco over dark red cloth, sympathetic to the original bright plum cloth binding. The binding features raised bands framed by blind rules, spine compartments with gilt titles, year of publication, and gilt ‘standing lion' device, substantial leather corners, double blind rule transitions, and head and foot bands. The original cloth front cover and spine are bound in, affixed to the recto and verso of the final free endpaper. Condition of the binding is fine, exceptionally clean and bright with just a few trivial scuffs to the spine. The contents are suited to the fine binding, bright with only moderate intermittent spotting within, primarily confined to the first and final leaves. First state of the first printing is confirmed by the absence of the 1911-1914 volume of The World Crisis on the half title verso list of works by the author. My Early Life covers the years from Churchill's birth in 1874 to his first few years in Parliament. One can hardly ask for more adventurous content. These were momentous and formative years for Churchill, including his time as a war correspondent and cavalry officer in theatres as varied as Cuba, northwest India, and sub-Saharan and southern Africa. This time contained a wide range of experiences in Churchill's life. Not only was he developing as an author, publishing his first books, and making his first lecture tour of North America, but this was also the time of his capture and daring escape during the Boer War, which made him a celebrity and helped launch his political career. Churchill would take his seat in Parliament only weeks after the end of Queen Victoria's reign. My Early Life remains one of the most popular and widely read of all Churchill's books. And for good reason, as the work certainly ranks among the most charming and accessible of his many books. An original 1930 review likened it to a "beaker of Champagne." That effervescent charm endures; a more recent writer called it "a racy, humorous, self-deprecating classic of autobiography." To be sure, Churchill takes some liberties with facts and perhaps unduly lightens or over-simplifies certain events, but this is eminently forgivable and in keeping with the wit, pace, and engaging style that characterizes the book. My Early Life sold very well at the time and has seen a great many editions since, many of them collectible in their own right, but of course a premium attaches to first editions. The challenge for collectors is that the plum colored binding of this edition proved especially susceptible to fading, soiling, and wear; nearly all copies are considerably spine faded. This fine binding is a sound and attractively executed alternative. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A91.1.b, Woods/ICS A37(aa), Langworth p.131.

        Bronze statue of an Arabic Qur'an scribe.

      [Vienna, ca 1930]. - Coloured two-part bronze, cold painted. Ca. 205 x 117 x 105 mm. A scribe in oriental costume, seated on a carpet with a large removable Qur'an on a bookrest. - Recognised for his great attention to detail and use of wonderfully vibrant colours, works from Bergman’s foundry are highly prized today by collectors worldwide. F. X. Bergman was the son of a Bohemian metalwork chaser and finisher who had moved to Vienna in 1860, there founding a small bronze factory. At the turn of the century, his son Franz Xaver inherited the company and opened a new foundry, basing many of his early bronzes on designs from his father’s workshop and producing an eclectic mix of oriental, erotic and animal figure bronzes. Bergman used a cold painted technique, whereby cast bronzes were decorated in several layers of polychrome ‘dust paint.’ These layers were not fired to fix them to the bronzes, hence they are ‘cold painted’. - Very slightly rubbed. An appealing work, likely from the artist's late phase.

        A Treatise on Money.

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited,, 1930. In Two Volumes. 2 volumes, octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine gilt, double line rules in blind to upper boards continued in gilt to spines. With the dust jackets. Dust jackets with darkened spines, very slight chipping at head, front panel of volume 2 lightly creased; internally with some light spotting, more severe in places; a very good set in unrestored dust jackets, increasingly scarce thus. First edition, first impression of the first of Keynes's major contributions to economic theory. A Treatise on Money is the first of Keynes's two major contributions to economic theory and 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. Rare in the dust jackets.
