        Black Manhattan (Association Copy Inscribed to Julius Rosenwald)

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1930. First Printing. Hard Cover. Good to Very Good/No Jacket. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Complete including all 14 photographic plates. Sound binding with intact hinges. Clean pages. Light wear to cover but sunned spine. Former owner's name inside front cover. Johnson's inscription on this important dedication copy reads, "For Julius Rosenwald with great admiration and deep regard. James Weldon Johnson / July 10, 1930." Rosenwald was a co-owner of Sears and Roebuck and one of the most generous philanthropists of his age. His Rosenwald Fund built 4,977 schools, 217 teachers' homes, and 163 shop buildings for African-American children in 15 states from Maryland to Texas. Johnson, one of the most influential African-Americans in the first half of the twentieth century, was a famous author, songwriter (he and his brother wrote "Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing" as well as popular songs like "Under the Bamboo Tree"), educator, lawyer, diplomat, civil rights activist, and a longtime leader in the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). In 1929, Rosenwald began to shift his philanthropic focus from funding black education projects to funding creativity in the African-American community by providing a series of large fellowships to black writers, artists, intellectuals, and researchers. Johnson was the first recipient, and he used his grant to publish Black Manhattan, the most important cultural study of African Americans from their first arrival in America to their triumphant achievements in 1920s Harlem. Johnson also thanks the Rosenwald Fund in this book's preface.

        Paul Robeson, Negro

      New York: Harper and Brothers. 1930. First. First edition. Corners worn, and the spine has been professionally and nearly seamlessly rebacked, a fair only copy, lacking the dustwrapper. A biography of Robeson by his wife. The Dedication Copy. The printed dedication reads "For Our Son." Their only child, Paul Robeson, Jr., was a mere two years old at the time of publication. This is Paul Robeson, Jr.'s copy with his bold ownership Signature on the front fly (obviously written at a later date). It also has the smaller ownership signature of Rev. Benjamin C. Robeson (Paul Robeson, Sr.'s brother). In addition, the subject of the book, Paul Robeson, Sr., has noted on the rear fly: "April 25, 1956. Have translated = The Soviet Biography - John. Soldier of Peace." An exact timeline of ownership is impossible to determine, but we suggest this was one of Paul Robeson, Sr.'s own copies, was then given to his brother, and was later inherited by the dedicatee, to whom his mother probably did not see fit to inscribe a copy while he was still in diapers. .

        BANALITÉ ILLUSTRÉ DE RÉOGRAMMES ET RECHERCHES D'OBJECTS DE LORIS ET PARRY.

      Paris: Éditions de la Nouvelle Revue Française, 1930. Parry, Roger. Small folio, 80 pp. of poems and prose by Fargue, 16 photogravures. Very faint occasional foxing on the blank margins, else a fine copy. Housed in a custom-made cloth clamshell box with paper labels on front and spine. Roger Parry (1905-1977) was inspired to illustrate, a surrealist work by André Breton's NADJA. He selected Fargue's book BANALITÉS (1922) for this project. Julien Levy, the American dealer (specializing in surrealism), became acquainted with Parry's photography through his appearance in PHOTOGRAPHIE and this work. Though the title page states that the illustrations are by Loris and Parry, in PHOTOGRAPHS FROM THE JULIEN LEVY COLLECTION, David Travis (Art Institute of Chicago, 1976, p. 86) states, "it is assumed that these photographs are by Roger Parry, since Levy acquired them from him." Of the total edition, 332 copies were printed on Hollande Pannekoek, and 35 copies on Japon Imperial. This is one of 332 copies. One of the major photographic works in the surrealist canon.

        1930 + 1936 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT 'LEST WE FORGET' BRITISH EMPIRE SERVICE LEAGUE DIARIES [B.E.S.L.] BY PRESUMED BRITISH DIPLOMAT OR FOREIGN SERVICE WORKER

      England 1930 - On offer is an intriguing and rather enigmatic pair of handwritten manuscript diaries belonging to a British gentleman and written during 1930 and 1936. We believe after a casual study of the difficult cursive that our author is a British diplomat or Foreign Service worker using a British Empire Service League. Day to day activities, mention of family, staff, contacts and payments lead one to suspect well placed intelligent writer who makes extensive notations especially of current events and most especially in the event laden year of 1936 when England suffers the death of the King, the new King beset by controversy and finally abdicating and of course Italy's assault on Abyssinia, Hitler's rantings and much, much more. The patient reader/researcher interested in the time period from the perspective of an English diplomat should be well rewarded once the cursive is conquered. 9 x 5.5 inch books are in shabby condition, 1930 worse than 1936. Covers are shot but present, loose text block but still legible and complete. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Korrespondenzsammlung mit Briefen von u. a. Alexander Lernet-Holenia, Hermann Röbbeling, Felix Salten, Heinrich Schnitzler und Hans Thimig.

      Verschiedene Orte, 1930er Jahre. - Zusammen 58 Schriftstücke im Umfang von 57 SS. auf 58 Bll. von und 134 Schriftstücke i. U. von 178½ SS. auf 150 Bll. an R. V. Igler. Verschiedene Formate. Mit einigen Beilagen. Wie Iglers hier im ms. Durchschlag vorhandenen Lebenslauf vom 29. IX. 1938 zu entnehmen ist, wurde der Nachlasser am 28. X. 1897 als Sproß einer Wiener Kaufmannsfamilie geboren, verbrachte mit seiner gesundheitlich an vielerlei leidenden Mutter die ersten Lebensjahre in verschiedenen Kurorten und besuchte hernach die Volks- und Unterrealschule, anschließend die Handelsakademie in Wien. Einem Eintrag im "Compaß" des Jahres 1918 (Bd. V. S. 2207) ist zu entnehmen, daß seine Familie - Franz J., Robert J. und Rudolf J. - eine Garn- und Seidenhandlung in Wien VII, Zieglergasse 26a, führte. - Im Ersten Weltkrieg an der Isonzofront, dann in Serbien und schließlich in Südtirol stationiert, verfaßte er während des Stellungskrieges in den Bergen erste Gedichte. In Heimat und Frieden zurückgekehrt, trat er in den väterlichen Betrieb ein, in dem er bis zur Gegenwart hin (September 1938) und wohl auch darüber hinaus bis zur Pension tätig war. Daneben schrieb er unverdrossen Schauspiele, deren Schicksal - Annahme, Ablehnung und Resonanz - in vorliegender Korrespondenzsammlung dokumentiert ist. Felix Salten etwa setzt sich in einem Brief vom 14. II. 1931 eingehend mit einem (namentlich bedauerlicherweise nicht genannten) Stück Iglers auseinander: "Bei der Lektüre Ihres Stückes habe ich mich vortrefflich unterhalten. Man spürt deutlich, daß die Figuren alle wirklich erlebt sind, ausgezeichnet gesehen und in ihrem Dialog zum allergrößten Teil sehr gut verlebendigt. Trotzdem glaube ich kaum, daß Ihr Werk in seinem jetzigen Zustand auf der Bühne wirken könnte. Dagegen spricht die etwas sorglose Architektur der Szenen, ferner die Uebertreibungen, die in der Zeichnung verschiedener Episoden, aber auch in der Figur des Christoph vorhanden sind, ferner die Abwesenheit jeglicher Liebesaffäre, und das Unwahrscheinliche der Schlußwendung. Ganz bestimmt befinden sich aber trotzdem in Ihrer Arbeit verschiedene Erfolgselemente und sichtbare Zeichen Ihres Talents, das freilich mehr zur Komödie und zum Lustspiel zu neigen scheint. Es widerstrebt mir, Ihnen einen Rat zu erteilen, weil man ja von außen nicht abzusehen vermag, wie sich ein Mann und nach welcher Richtung entwickelt. Wenn Sie den schweren Weg, dessen Endziel zweifelhaft bleibt, gehen wollen, bleiben Sie allein. Wenn Ihnen aus verschiedenen, meinetwegen auch practischen Gründen der leichtere Weg der gemäßere ist, dann verbinden Sie sich am besten mit einem handfesten erfahrenen Dramatiker [.]" (ms. Br. mit eh. U.). Im März des Folgejahres schickt Igler - auch mit unerwähnt bleibendem Titel - den "Entwurf zu einem Tonfilm" an Salten: "Die Doppelrolle habe ich Richard Tauber zugedacht [.] Wenn man den Gegenspieler Max durch Bressart besetzen könnte, würde mich der Film fesseln. Ob er auch meine lieben Mitmenschen packen und unterhalten könnte, bitte ich Sie, verehrter Meister[,] zu beurteilen", schreibt er unterm 12. III. und ersucht weiters, ob Salten, als "Meister des Drehbuches", "sich seiner [d. i. des Entwurfes] annehmen würde" (ms. Briefdurchschlag). Ungleich knapper nun fällt Saltens Antwortbrief diesmal aus: "Beiliegend erhalten Sie Ihr Manuskript wieder zurück mit der Bitte, darüber nicht zu erschrecken und mir nicht böse zu sein. Offengestanden, ich habe es nicht gelesen, weil Sie wünschen, daß ich mich des Drehbuches annehmen solle und weil ich mich niemals an einer fremden Arbeit beteiligen kann [.]" (ms. Br. mit eh. U. vom 5. IV. 1932). - Neben zahlreichen nicht identifizierten oder biographisch nicht erfaßbaren Verfassern finden sich in vorliegender Korrespondenzsammlung Schriftstücke der Schriftsteller, Schauspieler, Komponisten und Regisseure Herbert Furreg (Intendant, Theaterdirektor und Übersetzer, 1897-1958), Heinrich Glücksmann (Schriftsteller, Kunstkritiker und Dramaturg, 1863-1947), Paul Hansen (Schrifts [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        A Coast Pomo Girl

      Boston: Suffolk Engraving Company, 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) Renowned for their unrivalled basketry skills, the Pomo tribe inhabited Northern California. 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, wove paper (watermarked 'Van Gelder Zonen Made in Holland'). Excellent condition.
