        Sezione di Spilimbergo Scuola Corale.

      (Spilimbergo, Italy Opera Nazionale Dopolavoro c. 1930s) - Quarto. (30)ff. scrapbook belonging to a member of the Spilimbergo Choral School, and containing eight hand-tinted photographs, a roster of members, mimeographed sheets with lyrics to songs and a guide to a folk dance, and hand-written sheet music. One photograph shows the entire group in folkloric attire. The other photographs show couples dancing; most demonstrate specific steps to the furlana, a courtship folk dance. The choral roster in the front of the book lists the name of each member, his or her choral part and occupation. The Spilimbergo Scuola Corale was part of the Opera Nazionale Dopolavoro (OND), which was formed by Italian dictator Benito Mussolini in cooperation with fascist trade unions in 1925. The OND provided recreational and cultural activities for industrial workers and was intended to compete with Socialist cultural organizations. The OND’s activities were popular among workers, but it was never a successful tool for Fascist indoctrination; as such, the songs in this scrapbook appear to be more sentimental and folkloric than propagandistic. In slate blue paper wrappers, with the title calligraphed in black ink to front cover. The mimeographed pages bear the official stamp of the OND and the choral school. Repair to spine and some edgewear, else about fine. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      The Westgate Press, San Francisco 1930 - Woolf, Virginia STREET HAUNTING. Signed. San Francisco, 1930. 8vo., The Westgate Press. First Editon, First Limited Edition. Limited to 500 numbered copies signed by Woolf on the limitation page. Printed at the Gradhorn Press. Patterned paper-covered boards with emerald green leather gilt-stamped spine. Original card slipcase. A fine fresh copy of the most difficult of issues. Kirkpatrick A13 states: "There is at least one variant of the binding in sage-green paper boards patterned in gold and darker green with emerald-green leather spine and a green slip-in case. Mr. David McGee (bibliographer of the Grabhorn Press) states: '". the majority of the edition was bound in blue - ratio of 10 to 1 in favor of blue.". It is reasonable to presume that about 50 copies only appeared in green & that since most of these have faded to brown at the spine, perhaps as few as a half dozen survive in fine unfaded condition. This is one of those elusive fine copies. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        My Early Life

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1930. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Very good plus. This book comes from the personal collection of Churchill's bibliographer, Ronald I. Cohen. This is the first edition, first printing, first state, first binding state. Originally published in October 1930, My Early Life is Churchill's extremely popular autobiography, covering the years from his 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 assessible 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. Moreover, the contents are susceptible to heavy spotting and the binding is often cocked. This helps explain why so many first editions of this book have been torn apart and rebound. Here is a very good plus copy - an unrestored first edition, first printing, first state, first binding state that, while not fine, is in unusually clean condition for the edition. Edition, impression, and state are confirmed by a three-line rather than five-line title on the front cover, a binding in rough texture cloth rather than smooth, and 11 Churchill titles listed on the half-title verso. The cloth binding remains square and tight with nicely rounded spine and bright gilt. The spine is toned, as usual, but retains a respectable amount of color and decent shelf presentation. We note only modest wear to extremities, with a hint of fraying at the spine ends and small bumps to the lower corners. The contents are notable for showing no spotting whatsoever. We note modest overall age-toning with minor dust soiling to the top edge of the text block. The sole previous ownership mark is a gift inscription in pencil on the first free endpaper reading: "Hope you'll like this | Best wishes | Bob | Xmas 1930". The inscription may be erasable, but we have left it intact since it is from just two months after publication. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A91.1.a, Woods/ICS A37(aa), Langworth p.131.

Light spotting appears confined to the top and fore edges. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A91.1.a, Woods/ICS A37(aa), Langworth p.131.

To be sure, Churchill takes some liberties with facts and perhaps deceptively 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. Moreover, the contents are susceptible to heavy spotting and the binding is often cocked. This helps explain why so many first editions of this book have been torn apart and rebound. This is the British first edition, first printing. The binding is smooth cloth with five lines on the front cover. (Note that both smooth and coarse cloth bindings, with either three or five line titles on the front cover, were produced by the publisher prior to publication.) This is the second state of the first printing, with 12 Churchill titles listed on the half-title verso. Condition is very good minus. The plum cloth binding is square and tight. Spine presentation is quite decent for the edition; the spine is only lightly sunned, retaining good, even color and bright gilt. The binding is moderately soiled and shows wear at the corners and spine ends. The contents are unusually clean; we find no spotting either internally or on the page ends. The contents show modest age-toning toward the edges. The paper is split at the half title gutter, but the webbing beneath remains entirely intact and the binding tight. The sole inscription - in pencil - is an owner's name and date of "1930" on the ffep. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A91.1.c, Woods/ICS A37(aa), Langworth p.131.

        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. .
