        CONFESSIONS OF ZENO

      Alfred A. Knopf, New York 1930 - A lovely copy of Svevo's best work, a novel that is widely regarded as the "great modern Italian novel." Book Fine with a touch of mottling to the cloth on the rear board, otherwise clean, fresh and unread. In a Very Good + price-clipped dust jacket with small chips at the spine ends and one corner, otherwise in a quite attractive state. Self-published in 1923, the novel was largely ignored until championed by James Joyce, who had known Svevo and his writing for over 15 years. In fact, Svevo is credited as the inspiration for Joyce's immortal "Leopold Bloom" character in "Ulysses." A charming, riotous work of psychological realism in which Svevo's neurotic character writes his memoirs on the advice of his shrink. Fine in Very Good +. dust jacket. [Attributes: First Edition]

      - Ca 1930. (880 x 675 cm). Affiche en couleurs. Défauts, usures dans les marges. May Belfort, de son vrai nom May Egan, chanteuse irlandaise, amie de May Milton, arriva à Paris via le Music Hall de Londres et se produisit au Café-concert des Décadents. Toulouse-Lautrec eut une vraie fascination pour elle, la représenta dans plusieurs de ses lithographies et peintures le plus souvent sur scène, comme sur cette affiche qui la montre chantant un succès "Daddy wouldn't buy me a bow-wow", portant des habits de petite fille, un petit chat noir dans les bras. De santé fragile, elle se retira de la scène après une brève apparition au Petit Casino, pour laquelle elle avait commandé cette affiche. // Poster in colors. (880 x 675 cm). Defects, margins used. May Belfort, her real name is May Egan, Irish singer, friend of May Milton, came toParis via the London music halls and performed at the Décadents Café-concert. Toulouse-Lautrec became truly fascinated with her, depicting her in several of his lithographs and paintings, usually performing her act, as she is shown on this poster, singing a favorite song, "Daddy wouldn't buy me a bow-wow", dressed like a little girl, a black kitten in her arms. Due to ill health, she retired from the stage after a brief appearance at the Petit Casino, for which she had commissioned this poster.

        Fish Shows - Apsaroke

      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 1) Born around 1848, Fish Shows or 'Buusish' was a gallant Apsaroke warrior, who first fought under the renowned chief Red Bear against the Sioux. 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.

Top edge spotted, others lightly browned, otherwise about Fine, square and tight, in better than Near Fine jacket, the spine dust-soiled and a bit darkened, edges lightly rubbed and nicked. Petersen A2.14. In 1925, Faulkner moved to New Orleans where he joined a literary circle centered on Sherwood Anderson and was introduced to the modernist innovations of T. S. Eliot and James Joyce. His interest in experimental writing was piqued, and he began a novel, his first, Soldier's Pay, portraying the tragic homecoming of a wounded war hero. Though set in Georgia, it was, nonetheless, a kind of rehearsal for the later Mississippi novels, full of despair and "mythic motifs of impotence and futile love." (The Literary Encyclopedia) Wheatley's stylish thrillers and occult novels made him one of the world's best-selling writers from the 1930s through the 1960s. His Gregory Sallust series was a key inspirations for Ian Fleming's James Bond stories.

        Blood

      Heron Press Inc., New York 1930 - " One thousand one hundred numbered copies of 'Blood' have been printed in Granjon; 1 to100 on Charing Handmade Paper bound in cloth; 101 ti 1100 on Godleian Rag Laid, bound in specially designed paper. The first hundred copies have been signed by author and illustrator." This is the first book I have seen with 2 limitation pages. The first one says 750 copies and is un-numbered and unsigned, a possible mistake. This is on the verso of the page before the half title page. The limitation showing 1100 copies which is signed and numbered is on the verso of the half title page. Very confusing This is #31. Fine condition in quarter cloth black binding and vellum boards with illustrated paper label attached.Book is clean and unopened.The former owner Montgomery Evans II attached a "very cool" but strange bookplate to the front paste down. There are 7 lines of very neat script in pencil on verso of back cover. slight wear to front spine corner. A very rare and wonderful collectible. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Faber & Gwyer Ltd, London 1930 - FIRST PUBLISHED EDITION of Auden's first book, SIGNED BY AUDEN on title page; one of only1000 copies printed. Poems, accepted for publication by T.S. Eliot at Faber & Faber in 1930, established Auden's reputation at the young age of twenty-three. Included in Auden's landmark volume is the dramatic sketch "Paid on Both Sides: A Charade" dedicated to Cecil-Day Lewis as well as thirty shorter poems drawing on a breadth of material including the Icelandic sagas, Old English poetry, the works of Marx and Freud, and public-school life. Many of the poems first appeared two years earlier in a pamphlet (also entitled Poems) privately printed in a small number of copies (estimated to be about 30) that were handset by his friend Stephen Spender at the end of Auden's third year at Oxford. This copy also with a neat presentation inscription (dated 1932) from Auden's friend Richard "Dick" Crossman on the half-title and with a rare original Faber and Faber ad slip for Poems laid in. London: Faber & Faber, 1930. Small quarto, original stiff wrappers. Wrappers with a little edgewear; rear wrapper with a few indentations and a little rubbing. Rare signed.
