        Swallows and Amazons

      Jonathan Cape, London 1930 - HARDBACK - A near fine book that is very tightly bound with strong front and rear hinges. The blue boards are clean with bright gilt lettering to the front boards, and to the spine. The inner pages are clean with just a hint of foxing to the page block, when the book is closed. The book is free of any previous owner names or Inscriptions. The dust wrapper is a very good or better example, with just miniscule chipping to the spine tips, and to the corners of the front and rear flap folds. There is some toning to the spine of the dust wrapper, but overall the wrapper is a very nice example, that has not been price clipped, showing the correct price of 7s.6d.net.

Extra?illustrated with a photograph of the author (4.25" x 3.125"), signed Adolpho Rocha, tipped onto verso of title-page. ---- FIRST AND ONLY EDITION of Torga's second book, one of his rarest, one of the few early works published under his real name. Among the most important Portuguese authors of the twentieth century (?figura cimeira das Letras portuguesas??@Grande enciclopédia, Actualização, X, 397), the physician Adolfo Rocha was at the center of the "Grupo @Presença". "Em 1930 dá luz @Rampa, padrão de arrojo literário seguido de @Tributo (1931), @Abismo (1932) e @O outro livro de Job (1936?3ª ed. 1951), todos de grande audácia formal e revelando um pensamento agreste e inconformista que chamou sobre si a atenção dos críticos e do público, uns e outro divididos quanto à adesão aos cânones literários impostos pelo autor, mas todos, unânimemente, reconhecendo o valor ímpar que se revelava na sua obra dentro da moderna literatura portuguesa."?@Grande enciclopédia. His poetry is said to reflect "ainda as apreensões, esperanças e angústias do seu tempo, dentro de um ângulo individualista e, no fundo, religioso de visão, e a sua pureza e originalidade rítmicas, a coerência orgânica das suas imagens impõem?se . . ."?Saraiva & Lopes, p. 1061.@Provenance: Álvaro Taveira was one of Torga's closest friends. He was publisher of the important review @Manifesto, which appeared in Coimbra in five issues, from January 1936 to July 1938, edited by Torga and Albano Nogueira.---- Almeida Marques 2271.

        William S. Schwartz, a Study

      L. M. Stein, Publisher, Chicago 1930 - The first edition was published in August 1930. This second edition was published two months later in October, 1930. Both editions are extremely rare. The first edition has an original lithograph on page 5. In that first edition there is a statement that the lithograph will not be included in any subsequent editions. The publisher kept his word, and so even though this second edition has a reference to the original lithograph in the list of illustrations, it has this reference only because the page listing the illustrations was reproduced unchanged in the second edition. A color photocopy of this litho is laid in here, reproduced from the original litho to be found in a first edition copy (see the single sheet reproduced in the photo here). Both editions are as rare as hens teeth. Printed on fine paper, many full page illustrations. William S. Schwartz was born in Smorgon, Russia February 23, 1896. His studies and travels were extensive as was his body of work and musical endeavors. Schwartz studied at the Vilna Art School in Russia with a four-year scholarship before immigrating to the United States at the age of 17. He lived with his sister in New York for eight months before joining his brother in Omaha. There he became a house painter and continued his study in the fine arts at the Kellom School. Under the instruction of J. Laurie Wallace, Schwartz studied life drawing, portraiture and painting. He later moved to Chicago where he continued his lessons at the Art Institute and assumed the role of principle tenor in various vaudeville, radio, concert and operatic performances. His musical career supported his tuition at the Institute throughout the 1920¿s when he became a well-recognized painter. Schwartz¿s musical career continued to influence his works of abstract compositions, most notably in his series Symphonic Forms. His paintings have been closely sourced to the writings and philosophies of Wassily Kandinsky who explored the relations of music, spirituality, color and abstract form. After graduating from the Art Institute, Schwartz continued to exhibit there annually in group shows until, in 1926, he held his first solo-exhibition at the Institute. He continued to exhibit extensively in Chicago, Madison, Dallas, New York, Detroit and at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art. Schwartz received numerous awards and prizes throughout his career across the United States. In 1930 Manuel Chapman published an extensive study, William S. Schwartz and In 1984, Hirschl & Adler Galleries Inc. held an exhibition of Schwartz¿s work for which Doug Dreishpoon wrote an eloquent introduction to the catalog. William S. Schwartz died in Chicago in 1977. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Buchstaben Werk.

      (Malente-Gremsmühlen) Turmpresse 1930 - Folio. 30ff. One of twenty-five copies. All pages with beautiful, brightly hand-colored woodcuts by Karl Lorenz, and all but the outer leaves are signed and dated by him in graphite. In this work, Lorenz takes on the twenty-six letters of the alphabet, and his thickly textured woodcuts are combined with bold colors. Lorenz (1888 - 1961) was an influential figure in the Expressionist movement in Hamburg, as well as an important pioneer in modern German artists' books. Between 1925 and 1933, he produced a number of small editions under the Turmpresse imprint, characterized by large, dense woodcuts with brilliant colors. This copy is inscribed to the art critic and collector Gustav Schiefler and his wife, both of whom were strong supporters of Expressionism. Occasional offsetting throughout, else a fine copy housed in original plain paper wrap-around. Housed in a cloth folding case with the title reproduced on the front panel.

        The Edge of the Unknown

      John Murray, London, 1930., 1930. First Edition. SCARCE- only 909 copies were published. 8vo, pps. (vii) +332. A fine copy in gilt titled dark blue cloth clad in a very good, clean dustwrapper with some slight chipping and trivial loss to the extremities. A very pretty copy of Doyle's collection of spiritualist essays, including not only the fabulous posthumous meanderings of Oscar Wilde ("I was the medium through which beauty filtered...") but also the original laid in publisher's four page Doyle catalogue citing the author as "a good nourisher of Englishmen." High praise indeed. A collection of weird and wonderful supernatural tales and stories of a spiritualist nature reappearing in this first book form edition, some having previously materialised in periodicals. Includes 'Notes From a Strange Mail Bag', 'The Ghost of the Moat', 'Dwellers on the Border', 'A Strange Prophet' and 'A Rift in the Veil'. When his son Kingsley died from wounds incurred in the Great War, Conan Doyle dedicated himself to spiritualistic studies; both 'The Coming of Fairies' (1922) and 'The Edge of the Unknown' (1930) are examples, but he had already showed interest in supernatural fantasy before publishing the Sherlockian stories; in his early novel, 'The Mystery of Cloomber'(1888), a retired general finds himself under assault by Indian magic.

        The Edge of The Unknown

      New York, Putnam's. 1930, 39. First American edition: 8vo. Publisher's grey cloth titled in green to spine, near fine, minor edgewear and bumping to spine ends, clean and sharp. In an example of the scarce dustwrapper, somewhat worn to the edges with areas of shallow chiupping to the spine ends. Tape reinforcement to hinges and joints of dustwrapper. Internally clean, two bookseller labels to pastedown. Shows very well. Doyle explains his engagement with spiritualism and relates his fiery disagreement with the renowned showman and escapologist Houdini, a sceptic. The book is a testament to Doyle's belief in psychic revelation as well as an insight to the temper of the times. Houdini's supreme skill as an exponent of illusion was ironically the basis for his underhand attempts to expose those 'mediums' he perceived as charlatans.

        Original Illustrations for a Book?

      - 21 original pen and ink drawings on 12 bi-foliums of artist's paper stock. Nine of the bi-foliums consist of one larger drawing and one vignette; three of the bi-foliums contain a single drawing. Some modest soiling, dampstaining mostly in the margins of a couple drawings, encroaching on only one vignette, very good. Each large drawing is signed "C.R. Macauley"; each vignette is initialed "C.R.M."The Canton, Ohio-born artist won the Pulitzer Prize in 1930 for editorial cartooning in the Brooklyn *Daily Eagle*, and is perhaps best known for popularizing the caricatured image of Teddy Roosevelt brandishing his "big stick." He concentrated on book illustration between 1901-1905. Titles he wrote and illustrated include *Fantasma Land*, *The Red Tavern*, *Whom the Gods Would Destroy*, *Keeping the Faith*, *The Man Across the Street*, and *The Optimistic Spectacles*. Among the many books he illustrated were editions of *Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde* by Robert Louis Stevenson, *Romance: A Novel* by Joseph Conrad and Ford M. Hueffer, *Emblemland* by John Kendrick Bangs, and *The Return of Sherlock Holmes* by Arthur Conan Doyle.A group of nonsense drawings, some of fantastic subjects. It is unclear from which book these illustrations came from, although they are almost certainly from the period when he was concentrating on book illustration (1901-1905), purchased by us with other book art from the estate of a publisher. A few of the drawings are similar, and may be studies for *Emblemland* (images of John Bull and another of a talking oyster), but we have been unable at this date to locate some of his other works that might contain the drawings. Provenance on request.

      DOM publishers, 2011. 2011. Hardcover. Good. 31,2 x 25,6 x 5,2 cm. Der Städtebau des faschistischen Italien ist in Deutschland - jenseits der Zirkel weniger Spezialisten - nahezu unbekannt. Auch in den Ãœberblickswerken des europäischen Städtebaus wird er bis heute in der Regel ignoriert. Das ist umso erstaunlicher, wenn man bedenkt, dass im faschistischen Italien die wohl umfangreichsten städtebaulichen Projekte der Zwischenkriegszeit in Europa realisiert wurden. Das Buch bietet einen systematischen Ãœberblick uber den Städtebau der Mussolini-Diktatur auf der Grundlage zahlreicher, wenig bekannter Abbildungen, und es interpretiert diesen Städtebau neu, insbesondere mit Blick auf den Städtebau der anderen Diktaturen der Zwischenkriegszeit. Im Zentrum stehen die städtebaulichen Debatten und Projekte im Großraum von Rom und in den trockengelegten pontinischen Sumpfen sudöstlich von Rom.

        Wolf Lies Down - Apsaroke

      Suffolk Engraving Company, Boston 1930 - A breath-taking image from "The North American Indian", the grandest illustrated work ever produced in the United States, the most important illustrated work on Native Americans, and the single greatest book in Western Americana. Only the double-elephant folio edition of Audubon's "Birds of America" surpasses Curtis in its massive ambition and beauty of execution. ".Because of the singular combination of qualities with which he has been blessed, and because of his extraordinary success in making and using his opportunities. (Curtis) has been able to do what no other man has ever done; what, as far as we can see, no other man could do. He is an artist who works out of doors and not in a closet. He is a close observer, whose qualities of mind and body fit him to make his observations out in the field, surrounded by the wild life he commemorates. He has lived on intimate terms with many different tribes of the mountains and the plains. He knows them as they hunt, as they travel, as they go about their various avocations on the march and in camp. He knows their medicine men and their sorcerers, their chiefs and warriors, their young men and maidens. He has not only seen their vigorous outward existence, but has caught glimpses, such as few white men ever catch, into that strange spiritual and mental life of theirs; from whose inner most recesses all white men are forever barred." (Theodore Roosevelt, Foreword to Volume I) A member of the Never Packs Game clan, Wolf Lies Down was a Mountain Crow leader, who fought against the Sioux in the Battle of Pryor Creek near Billings, Montana in 1860. According to Curtis, in "stature and in vigor the Apsaroke, or Crows, excelled all other tribes of the Rocky Mountain region, and were surpassed by none in bravery and in devotion to the supernatural forces that gave them strength against their enemies." (Volume IV) Originally planters from the upper Midwest, they inhabited the Plains and Prairies region of the United States, where they became hunters and skilled horsemen. Edward Curtis was fascinated by the story of the Native Americans from childhood. His in-depth knowledge of the various tribes increased in parallel with his skill as a photographer during his participation in a number of scientific expeditions in the 1890s. In 1896, Curtis began to take photographs of the Native American tribes (by 1930 he had taken over 40,000 negatives of eighty tribes) and evolve his hugely ambitious plan for a comprehensive work which would illustrate his romantic vision of Native American life before the disastrous impact of European contact. With the enthusiastic support of President Theodore Roosevelt (who wrote the foreword to the present work) and the financial backing of J. Pierpont Morgan (Curtis was introduced to him by Roosevelt), the publishing project finally got under way in 1906. Pierpont Morgan died in 1913 just before the completion of the ninth volume, but his son agreed to continue underwriting the project; between them, they eventually contributed about a third of the $1,500,000 cost. What had originally been projected to take five or six years eventually stretched to twenty-three, finally reaching a conclusion in 1930 but leaving Curtis a broken and bankrupt man. Nonetheless, his grand design was completed, and his work remains as his monument. Cf. Naef & Goldschmidt The Truthful Lens 40; cf. Howes C-965. Photogravure after Edward Curtis, printed by the Suffolk Engraving Company, Japon paper. Very good condition apart from a mild surface abrasion in the top left corner of the plate mark.

        The Bridge

      New York: Horace Liveright. (1930). First. First American edition, preceded by the very limited French edition. Photograph by Walker Evans. Fine in a very good, spine-faded dustwrapper with a couple of internally repaired short tears, in custom cloth chemise and quarter morroco slipcase. Inscribed by the poet: "For Tom Smith with best wishes, Hart Crane." This edition was extensively revised and corrected following the first privately printed edition of 275 copies published by the Black Sun Press in Paris three months earlier. Smith was the editor-in-chief for the publisher Horace Liveright to whom, some evidence exists, Crane turned to when he was short on funds. Smith picked a succession of bestsellers for Liveright beginning with Hendrick Van Loon's The Story of Mankind (1921). Equally important, he selected up-and-coming writers Eugene O'Neill (Gold: A Play in Four Acts), Ernest Hemingway (In OurTime), William Faulkner (Soldier's Pay), T.S. Eliot (The Waste Land), Sherwood Anderson (Windy McPherson's Son), and Hart Crane (The Bridge). He also edited Dreiser's An American Tragedy. As Manuel Komroff wrote in his tribute to Smith and to his lasting influence on American literature: "Here was born a new American renaissance. All literature was changed and the relation between literature and the great American public was also changed ... much of this change was due to Tom Smith ... No one literary man in America has to his credit so much and no one literary man has carried this load with such humble modesty ..." (The Book of Tom Smith. A Biblio-Epitaph. Privately Printed, 1942). The relationship between Liveright and Smith inspired Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur to co-write and co-direct the 1935 film The Scoundrel (for which they won an Academy Award for their screenplay). One of the highspots of 20th Century poetry, rare signed, and with an excellent association. Connolly 100. .
