An important association copy connecting a major Harlem Renaissance playwright to a school committed to equal education. Considered the founder of educational black theater, Randolph Edmonds compiled six of his most imaginative plays into Shades and Shadows. This was his first collection, tied together by dramatic fantasy that "were to be read aloud and were not intended to be acted on the stage." Soon after the release of Shades and Shadows, Edmonds joined the faculty of Dillard University, a private southern school committed to providing a predominantly African American student body with a liberal arts education that fostered "cultural enlightenment and participation" (Dillard). There, Edmonds taught drama and helped build the college's reputation intellectual and artistic innovation.

She was the recent widow of Thorsten Jonsson the journalist and critic who had been instrumental in getting Faulkner published in Sweden. On the night of the Nobel dinner 11th December - Faulkner walked Else home. He inscribed whatever copies of his books she had in the apartment and the two began a passionate affair which lasted several years. The couple met several times in Paris. Faulkner destroyed her letters to him but his side of the correspondence is one of the fullest and most remarkable extant. Faulkner's relationship with Else Jonsson was undoubtedly the most significant of his later life.

        The Works.

      New York: Doubleday, Doran & Co.,, 1930. The Crowborough Edition. 24 volumes, octavo (218 × 145 mm). Recent dark blue morocco, burgundy morocco labels, centre tool to spines gilt, raised bands, roll to boards gilt, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Photogravure frontispiece portrait by Pirie MacDonald to Volume I. The occasional minor blemish otherwise in excellent condition. First complete collected edition, number 74 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.

        Royal Tailors Counter Display Advertising Case with 70 Sample Cards

      1930. Salesman Sample Case. Original tin-lithographed counter display sample case. Minor damp stain to rear of one card, minor edge wear to one sample, some crackling to the lithograph image on raised lid, creasing down the center from rubbing against the divider of the lower portion of the case; very good. Divided into two compartments, with lid that folds down, 16½ x11¼ x4¼ inches (when closed). Lid, emblazoned with beautiful color illustration of the Royal Tiger, is 8½ x 16½ inches and pivots on each end. Includes 70 sample cards, printed borders, most with Royal Tailors Tiger logo in corner, with a total of 88 original textile fabric samples of wool, wool over coating fabrics, worsted, cheviot, wool blends, and wool felts. Each card measures approximately 8 x 10¾ inches. Scarce and unusually complete salesman sample case for woolen fabrics used in men's suits, overcoats, pants, and even women's raincoats and overcoats in the 1930s. Prior to 1932, these Royal Tailors counter display advertising cases were usually made from wood covered in paper, or book cloth, and thick press board. The application of color lithography to pressed metal made for a very durable, and lightweight display case which appeared modern and appealing in the 1930s. The woolens in this display appear to have been intended for Fall and Winter as the majority are darker colors, and include many versions of coat and over-coating wool blends. The catalog offers invaluable tactile textual reference for the colors and fabrics during the era of fashion highly influenced by the elegance and glamor of Hollywood films of the era. Joseph Vehon (1834-1918) was a pioneer in the idea of wholesale merchant tailoring, and built one of the largest firms of its type in the world. He had immigrated from Poland to the United States just before the Civil War, and initially founded a dry goods store which failed, and began building a thriving business across eastern Texas as a traveling store with large wagons of stock. He later established his clothing store in Iowa in 1870, and was one of the first to offer a money back guarantee if the customer was not satisfied. His business took off, and within 20 years was building an empire which would expand to over 10,000 towns and cities across the United States. His children Morris Vehon (1876-1950) , and Emma Vehon, continued to build and expand upon the company success employing over 2000 tailors and seamstresses at its height. .

        ON BEING ILL

      London: Hogarth Press, 1930. FIRST EDITION. No. 142 OF 250 COPIES, SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. One of the most interesting of Woolf's non-fiction works, this short meditative essay argues that there is a value to illness. It makes us aware of our bodies (which we often ignore), refines the senses, sharpens observation, and forces us to contemplate mortality and immortality. Sprinkled with wit and poetic feeling, the work gives us intriguing insights into Woolf's attitude toward her own bouts with illness, physical and mental. The limitation page notes that Woolf set the type herself: it was her husband's hope, when the couple established the Hogarth Press in 1917, that printing would provide her with an avocation offering a respite from the intellectual strain of writing. This book is becoming increasingly difficult to find in the sort of condition seen here.. 208 x 135 mm. (8 1/4 x 5 3/8"). 4 p.l. (one blank), [9]-34 pp., [1] leaf. FIRST EDITION.

Bookplate to the front pastedown of Raymond Greene, distinguished doctor and mountaineer and brother of Graham. Signature of 'W.

Loosely inserted a TLS, folded twice,from Churchill to Graham Greene on Chartwell notepaper, 8th August 1924 'My dear Graham Greene, I have kept your letter of the 29 July until now in the hopes of being able to conform to your wishes and to accept the very kind invitation with which, on behalf of your brother, you have honoured my wife and me. I am sorry to say, however, that my plans make it impossible for me to do so. I have a political engagement on the 24th or 25th at Edinburgh, and I have arranged to leave immediately thereafter with my wife for ten days abroad. The Irish development will, I fear, lead to so many difficulties that I shall have to be back in England early on October. In these circumstances I hope you will forgive me for not undertaking this task at any rate this year. I need not say how much we both appreciate your having wished us to pay this visit. Believe me Yours very sincerely Winston Churchill'. Also tipped in a newspaper obituary of Dr. Raymond Greene. Spine faded, the letter slightly soiled on the folds.

        Moby Dick, or The Whale

      New York: Random House, 1930. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. Kent, Rockwell. First trade edition, duodemico size, 823 pp. First trade edition of Moby Dick illustrated by Rockwell Kent; the Lakeside Press published a limited edition in three volumes with 280 illustrations; this trade edition is in a smaller format and uses 272 of the illustrations. Rockwell Kent was already well-known and his appeal has continued to grow; his work remains widely collected today. Interestingly, while Melville wrote Moby Dick in 1851, it was almost neglected until Kent elected to illustrate the story; his illustrated version had tremendous success and revived the novel for the 20th century.___DESCRIPTION: Black cloth boards with silver letting on front and spine, both the front and spine also display Kent's own design of a whale, with the head on the front and the tail on the spine, cream endpapers, vintage bookseller's ticket on the rear pastedown from Capwell, Sullivan & Furth, Oakland, Calif., with their price sticker of $3.50. Volume is replete with Kent's black-and-white pen/brush and ink drawings which made him justly so famous; duodecimo size (approximately 7" tall), 822 pages plus a one-page Epilogue.___CONDITION: Volume could almost be termed fine, the silver gilt on the front and spine is bright with minimal rubbing, the volume has a square, strong text block and solid hinges, gently bumped head and tail of spine, and also corners with a single miniscule rubbed corner (lower front), and entirely free of prior owner markings; minor toning to the endpapers and a very small (approximately one-half inch) crack to the bottom of the back hinge, else fine. A stunning example of a literary icon which endures in our cultural consciousness. ___CITATION: Rockwellkentiana, pg. 62.___POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply, please contact seller nquire for details.___Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        Mei Lan-Fang Chinese Drama (Title page: The First American Tour of Mei Lan-Fang)

      New York.: China Institute in America.. No date. Ca. 1930.. Booklet, 12 ¼ x 9 ¼ inches, 38 unnumbered pages plus decorative grey paper wrappers. Free-edge corners lightly bumped; former owners name in pencil on first page. Contents in good clean condition overall. Program with a collection of essays introducing the work of actor Mei Lan-Fang to the American Public. The first portion of the program contains a series of essays relating to Mei Lan-Fang and the Chinese Drama. Essays include a discussion of Mei Lan-Fang's appeal to his Chinese audience; another essay on the Chinese theatre as a distinctive art form; other essays on the character types in Chinese theatre and the role of the female impersonator, Mei Lan-Fang's specialty. Further essays focus on the characteristics (or "peculiarities" the term used) of Chinese drama, with additional essays on costumes, stage properties and symbolism and musical instruments. The rest of the program provides synopses of eleven plays in his repertoire and a short introduction to a dozen "scenes" that enrich his repertoire—primarily in the form of dance. An uncommon program focusing on an actor whose work had a major impact on Western Drama. Perhaps Mei Lan-Fang's greatest impact on Western theatre is found in the work of German dramatist Bertolt Brecht, especially Brecht’s concept of "Verfremdungseffekt," understood as a "distancing" or "estrangement" effect. The program and essays provide valuable documentation of Mei Lan-Fang's presence and impact on American theatre. .

        RED MAGIC: A Collection of the World's Best Fairy Tales from All Countries Edited & Arranged by Romer Wilson

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1930. The rarely encountered first edition. Illustrated with eight fine colour plates and numerous line drawings by Kay Nielsen, most of which being full page. 8vo, publisher's original red cloth lettered in gilt on spine, with the top edge dyed red. This is what we have discovered to be one of two variant bindings in orange/red and with Cape's logo printed at the bottom of the spine panel and not embossed on the rear cover, there is no priority established. 368. A bright and clean copy, the cloth with only the lightest of mellowing to the spine panel, internally very fresh, uncommonly so. VERY SCARCE FIRST EDITION, THE FINAL TITLE TO BE ILLUSTRATED COMPREHENSIVELY BY KAY NIELSEN. The work is Illustrated in his distinctive art nouveau style and includes eight wonderful colourplates and over fifty monochrome creations. Nielsen was recognized as one of the three great illustrators of the fine gift book. Unlike Rackham and Dulac whose success coincided with the demand for the deluxe gift book, Nielsen missed his opportunity. Though often thought to be the very best of them all, he was unable to profit from his great talent, ultimately turned to theatrical design and the motion picture industry, most notably at the Disney Animation Studio. This is the last of only five titles illustrated by Nielsen. Scarce.
