        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.

Rahir had been apprenticed, aged sixteen, at Morgand and Fatout, and after Morgand's death in 1898 he carried on the business, as "Édouard Rahir et Cie", supported by the Rothschild bank (Rahir had paid out the Rothschilds by 1903). Rahir's stock at the time of his retirement was sold anonymously in 1927-1929, and on 7 May 1930 began the series of six sales of his personal library, as "La Bibliothèque de feu Édouard Rahir, ancien libraire", as Rahir had mandated, "for he had no respect for the retired bookseller who tends to forget that he has ever been in trade" (Arthur Rau, "Édouard Rahir 1862-1924" in The Book Collector, Summer 1967, pp.169-177). ¶ Fine, well-presented set.

Goldschmidt for the Guyot de Villeneuve-Lebeuf de Montgermont Sammelband of works by Dürer (lot 82).

        Novye poety Frantsii v perevodakh Iv. Tkhorzhevskogo [Recent French poets in translation by Iv. Tkhorzhevskii]

      Paris: Knizhn. Delo, 1930. Large octavo (24 × 18.5 cm). Original blue decorative wrappers by Boris Grosser; 193, [2] pp. Signed and inscribed by the author to a fellow translator on the front flyleaf (Sablina). Wrappers lightly worn, edges rubbed; some fading and loss of spine strip at ends; internally very good. A monumental collection of French poetry in Russian translation, featuring the work of over seventy French poets of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, prepared and with a preface by Ivan I. Tkhorzhevskii, Russian emigre poet and translator. Among the many poets included are Verlaine, Rimbaud, Maeterlinck, Claudel, Gide, Proust, Apollinaire, Jean Cocteau, Paul Valery, and Valery Larbaud. Tkhorzhevsky's translations were far from universally appreciated. The poet Vladislav Khodasevich was reputed to have quipped about his translation of the Rubaiyat: "I had a terrible nightmare. I dreamed that I was a Person poet and that Tkhorzhevsky was translating me" (Karlinsky 315). And Vladimir Nabokov, in a letter to Gleb Struve, ridiculed Tchorzhevsky's translation of Rimbaud's "The Drunken Boat" for his unwarranted additions (such as a captain of the Russian intelligentsia). Wrappers designed by Boris N. Grosser (1889-1982), a French Jewish artist of Russian birth who illustrated numerous books published by Russian emigres with his distinctive woodcut designs. After studying with Bilibin, Grosser continued his training in Munich and Paris. After 1918, he lived in Odessa and in 1920 he emigrated, settling in Paris after 1921. He collaborated with numerous publishing houses in Paris, Berlin, and Holland, illustrating the works of Ivan Bunin, Vladimir Nabokov and many others. Grosser remains an understudied part of Russian book design and illustration abroad. One of 500 copies printed. Not in Savine; not at the Russian State or National Library.

        The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism. Translated by Talcott Parsons. With a foreword by R. H. Tawney.

      London: George Allen & Unwin, 1930 - Octavo. Original black cloth, spine lettered in gilt, with the dust jacket. Very slight rubbing to spine ends and corners, dust jacket spine darkened, with some chipping to spine ends; a clean, bright copy in a very good jacket, rarely seen. Ownership inscription "Stewart" to front free endpaper in ballpoint. First edition of the first English translation of Weber's great work, which originally appeared in German across two issues of the Archiv für Sozialwissenschaften und Sozialpolitik (November 1904 and June 1905). He managed to substantially revise the text for its first publication in book form shortly before his death in 1920; it appeared under the title Die protestantische Ethik und der Geist des Kapitalismus and was intended as the first volume in a series collecting Weber's writings on the sociology of religion, though his death meant the project was never completed. "The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism is Max Weber's most famous as well as most controversial book. In it he traced the influence of religious ideas upon the conduct of men and challenged the Marxist thesis that man's consciousness is determined by his social class Instead of completing his investigation of Protestantism, Weber began a comparative analysis of urban communities and of political organization as well as a study of the relation between religion and society. These wide ranging studies had the common purpose of defining and explaining the distinguishing characteristic of Western civilization. The Protestant Ethic was destined to serve as an introduction to this major theme of Weber's lifework, a specification of the interrelation of religious ideas and economic behaviour as the focus for further research. Weber's particular thesis – that Puritan ideas had influenced the development of capitalism – became the subject of a voluminous literature" (Bendix, Max Weber, an intellectual portrait, p. 71f). IESS (1904-1905). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
