"Political and economic socialism, a new religion of creative evolution, antivivisection, vegetarianism, and spelling reform were a few of his causes…[Shaw] began to write for the stage in 1885. With most of his early plays either banned by the censor or refused production, Shaw sought a reading audience with his first published collection, Plays Pleasant and Unpleasant (1898)…Shaw wrote his best plays prior to, during, and shortly after World War I. They include Man and Superman [1905], John Bull's Other Island (written [1904] at the request of William Butler Yeats for the Irish Literary Theatre), Major Barbara [1905], Fanny's First Play (1912), Androcles and the Lion (1912), Pygmalion [1913], Heartbreak House [written 1913, produced 1920], Back to Methuselah [1921], and Saint Joan [1923].

A follower of Meher Baba, Pascal was the first film producer to successfully bring the plays of George Bernard Shaw to the screen. His most successful production was Pygmalion, for which Pascal received an Academy Award nomination as its producer. Later adaptations of Shaw plays included Major Barbara (1941) and Caesar and Cleopatra (1945).Ayot St Lawrence is a small village and civil parish in Hertfordshire, England, between Harpenden and Welwyn. There are several other Ayots in the area, including Ayot Green and Ayot St Peter. George Bernard Shaw lived in the village, at Shaw's Corner, from 1906 until his death in 1950; his ashes are scattered there. The house is open to the public as a National Trust property.Laurence A198b.

Title translates to "Sixteen: A Collection of End Compositions of Sixteen Graduate of the Shalom Aleichem Elementary School in Chicago. " Rare collection of writings from elementary-age boys and girls from secular-Yiddish Chicago schools but published in Warsaw. "Yiddish schools in America were always supplemental schools, meeting several times a week after public schools. This was a major difference between the Yiddish schools in Poland which were, if chosen by the parents, the primary day school of the child, and the Yiddish schools in America which never developed a single Yiddish day school. On the political spectrum of the Yiddish cultural world in the 1920s and 1930s, the Sholem Aleichem Folk Institute and its schools, and the Yiddish camp, Camp Boiberik, were more to the right, with less emphasis on socialism and more stress on the humanistic values that can be learned from traditional Judaism and applied to the modern Jewish experience. Founded in 1918, the Institute lasted until the 1970s, and was a national movement which attained its greatest support in the 1930s" (UTexas, 2017) .

Very good condition throughout; occasional light wear to overlapping wrapper edges. Set of four complete yearly runs, as well as one special jubilee issue, of this undocumented Czech-language journal of the interwar Czech student community in Vienna, billed as the only independent Czech journal in Vienna. "Náraz" contains articles on the cultural and political interests of the Czech minority in Austria, reflections on student life and the life of the young generation in Vienna, as well as overviews of Czech modernist art and literature, and even occasional original poetry and prose. Some of the contributions also concern contemporary philosophy, such as the conflict between pragmatism and idealism. Of particular interest are the literary articles by Alexandr Hlin ný on Vitezslav Nezval's prose and on modernist Czech poetry. The authors of original poetry included in "Naraz" are Ji?í Janou?ek, Václav Hrubý, K. J. Kraus, Alois Hoffmann, Jan Ho?ký, Pavel Stránský, Miroslav Bidlas, and Maria Franzlová. The wrappers are illustrated with an appealing typographic design (unattributed) and each issue contains numerous advertisements of Czech businesses in Vienna, often set in appealing typography.

        Moby Dick or The Whale

      Chicago: The Lakeside Press,, 1930. 3 volumes, large quarto. Original black cloth, bevelled boards, titles and vignettes to spines in silver, abstract design and volume numbers within simple frame to front boards in silver, top edges black, others uncut. With the original clear plastic dust jackets with paper flaps. Housed in the original aluminium slipcase. Wood-engravings throughout by Rockwell Kent. Illustrations faintly offset, mild adhesive staining to vol. 1 pastedowns from dust jackets; the dust jackets slightly yellowed on spines, and rubbed and cockled overall, with mild chipping to outer corners, a sliver of loss to the bottom edge of vol. 1 rear panel, old tape repair to the head of the front flap of vol. 2 (with concomitant trival marking to the board), vol. 3 jacket with a short split on spine and the front flap secured by tape; mottling to underside of slipcase. A superb set, extremely well-preserved owing to the unusual survival of the dust jackets and the slipcase. First Rockwell Kent edition, limited to 1,000 sets, rare in this condition, unusually retaining both the dust jackets and the slipcase. This is 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.

        Album of photographs from service in Waziristan, 1930-1.

      Waziristan: [but probably compiled at the] Staff College, Quetta, 1930-1 - Foolscap light card green folder (280 x 175 mm). Printed paper label, "Staff College Quetta. North West Frontier Tour. 1930" mounted to front panel. Folder slightly sunned, rubbed and marked, second leaf tipped in at a slight angle, a very small number of photographs lifting at edges, leaves faintly creased along fore edges, the images unaffected. Very good condition overall, with only a minimum of fading to the photographs. 12 black thick-paper leaves tipped in, with 94 original photographs (all approx. 82 x 56 mm, 4 of these combined to make 2 panoramas) and 19 professional silver gelatin prints (approx. 90 x 140 mm; signed and captioned in the images) mounted rectos and versos, with hand-written captions in white ink. Deceptively extensive photograph album of military service in Waziristan during the Afridi and Red Shirt rebellions, with almost 100 original photographs of views, cantonments, operations, and native and British troops, complemented by attractive prints (mostly views) by prolific North-West Frontier photographers B. R. Tundan, B. D. Arora and Sons, and Randolph Bezzant Holmes, all exhaustively captioned and arranged in what appears to be broad chronological sequence. The compiler seems to have approached Waziristan from the south (probably Multan), crossing the Indus at Dera Ismail Khan and passing through Manzai, Chagmalai and Splitoi before arriving at Wana, the British camp there and the various surrounding picquets documented in a series of photographs including native troops (Madras sappers and miners, a khasadar at Madijan) and one of the 10th Baluchistan Regiment (possibly his own unit); thence to Shagai Fort (with a photograph of two officers amusingly captioned "'Dreadnought' & another heavyweight, Major Meade 2/0 Rajputana Rifles") and Peshawar, depicted in a general view and two attractive street scenes including a "wayside shave". From Peshawar the unit seems to have travelled along the Khyber Pass to the Indo-Afghan frontier at Michni Kandao, documented in a series of photographs, with stops at Landi Kotal (the photograph depicting a unit of Gordon Highlanders) and Fort Salop. The next sequence of photographs is perhaps the most indicative of British operations in this period, depicting the construction of the "New Bridge" over the Bara River on the Khajuri Plain: "After the tribal uprising of 1919-1920, it was decided during the spring of 1922 to locate the main garrison of Waziristan at Razmak. The self-contained cantonment, capable of holding 10,000 men, was established in January 1923. New roads linking the garrisons and camps in the area were constructed to permit speedier troop movements" (National Army Museum, online). Original photographs depicting the subsequent journey, up to Razmak past Dhatta Khel, is accompanied by three Tundan photographs depicting the newly-laid Waziristan Circular Road. Another attractive Tundan print depicts the "Razmak Column in action", and an original photograph intriguingly depicts Brigadier Arthur Mills, commander of the Razmak Brigade, inaugurating the Razmak "golf course" on Christmas Day, 1930. The garrison is portrayed in a number of professional and original photographs, interspersed with a Tundan print of a "Wazir woman", Arora photographs of Jandola Bridge and "Representative types, South Waziristan Scouts, Jandola", original images of Merobi tribesmen, a column of Gurkhas near a "typical Wazir tower", and several original views of Takki Zam and Ahnai Tangi, followed by a closing sequence of street scenes back in Peshawar and views of the new Attock Bridge, redesigned by Sir Francis Callaghan in 1929.

        Collected Poems.

      New York: Random House, 1930 - Octavo. Original buckram, gilt title label to spine, top edge gilt. Spine somewhat tanned, label scuffed, ends and corners a little rubbed, but a very good copy, sound and internally fresh. First collected edition, signed limited issue, number 925 of 1,000 copies signed by the author, additionally inscribed, "To Jerry Johnson from his old old friend Robert Frost" on the front free endpaper. Professor Lewis Jerome Johnson (1876-1952), known as "Jay", was a Massachusetts-born civil engineer who had coincided with Frost at Harvard. He later taught at Harvard and MIT, and designed the Harvard Stadium. This copy has some Frost ephemera laid in, including two photographs of Frost captioned as being "taken by J.A.J. about 1935" (Jerome Allen Johnson, his son). This edition, which constituted Frost's first collected edition, brings together poems from his early collections: A Boy's Will, North of Boston, Mountain Interval, New Hampshire, and West-Running Brook. The signed limited edition is not uncommon, but personally inscribed copies are very scarce. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

Büxenstein / Berlin. 200 Exemplare wurden auf feinstem Einsiedel-Bütten gedruckt und in Ganzleder gebunden". - "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen.

Professor Lewis Jerome Johnson (1876-1952), known as "Jay", was a Massachusetts-born civil engineer who had coincided with Frost at Harvard. He later taught at Harvard and MIT, and designed the Harvard Stadium. This copy has some Frost ephemera laid in, including two photographs of Frost captioned as being "taken by J.A.J. about 1935" (Jerome Allen Johnson, his son). This edition, which constituted Frost's first collected edition, brings together poems from his early collections: A Boy's Will, North of Boston, Mountain Interval, New Hampshire, and West-Running Brook. The signed limited edition is not uncommon, but personally inscribed copies are very scarce.

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.
