        Original Manuskripte / Aufzeichnungen von Wilhelm Steinkopf,

      - leichte Gebrauchsspuren, Inhalt: Im Sonnenlande Dalmatien (Geschrieben in Dresden, Jan. 1930) / Besuch bei Reinhold Braun (Dresden, Okt. / Nov. 1930) / In der Werkstatt Gottes / Christentum der Tat / Ewigkeit / Irdischer und göttlicher Beruf / Der Sinn des Lebens / Wo ist dein Bruder Abel? / Hab' Sonne im Herzen! / Auszüge v. "Stille Tage": "Funkelnd liegt der Morgentau auf Blüten und Blättern meines Gärtleins. Feierlich ragen die Berge zum lichtblauen Himmel empor, die Wiesen glänzen wie Demanten in der jungen Sonne, und der Bach singt ein Lied, das so wundersam traulich klingt, daß ich meine, die Worte dazu müsste Matthias Claudius, der Mann mit dem ewigjungen Kinderherzen, in einer seiner gesegnetsten Stunden geschrieben haben. Allmählich wacht das Leben auf rings um mich her. Hummeln mit ihren schillernden Flügeln, Falter mit der fröhlichen Harmonie ihrer Farben schwirren von Blüte zu Blüte, ihr Frühstück zu holen. Und ein Rotschwänzchen fliegt dicht zu mir her, wippt mit dem Schwanz und blinzelt mich an, als wollt' es sagen: 'Ei, Guten Morgen! Bist du auch wieder hier?' (.) "Mein Häuslein hier oben ist schlicht und klein. Es birgt nur das Nötigste, dessen der Mensch bedarf. All das, was man im lauten Leben der Stadt glaubt nicht entbehren zu können, fehlt. Aber drei Fenster hat mein Zimmerlein, nach Osten, nach Süden und nach Westen; so fängt es die Sonne zu jeder Stunde des Tages auf. Auch mein Gärtlein ist klein. Doch es blüht darin alles bunt durcheinander. Und im Herbst, wenn die Goldraute ihre Dolden entfaltet, ist es wie ein lachendes, goldenes Märchen. Und in all dieser Schlichtheit und Einfachheit fühl' ich mich so unendlich reich, und oft denk' ich, wie wenig braucht doch der Mensch, um glücklich zu sein. Es ist gut, wenn man irgendwo ein stilles Fleckchen weiß, dahin man sich zuweilen flüchten darf aus dem Lärm und der Unrast der Welt. In dem rasenden Tempo des Lebens unserer Zeit fehlt eins: die besinnliche Stunde, in der wir in uns hineinschauen und uns Rechenschaft geben von unserem Denken und Tun. Die Stunde, in der wir, losgelöst vom Jetzt, fester und inniger verbunden sind mit dem Ewigen, um daraus Kraft zu schöpfen für den kommenden Tag. Denn, je stärker der Mensch wirken will in der Zeit, umso fester muss er wurzeln in der Ewigkeit, wenn sein Wirken zum Segen werden soll für ihn und die anderen."

        As I Lay Dying

      Jonathan Cape, New York 1930 - FIRST EDITION, first issue, one of only 750 copies. "If T.S. Eliot was right in saying that American fiction took its first step forward since Henry James in The Great Gatsby, then one should be free to say that As I Lay Dying, which makes Fitzgerald's technique seem wooden and creaky, was a tremendous stride forward, making possible levels of awareness, a sense of variety, and a saturation of reality that would have delighted Henry James" (O'Connor, The Tangled Fire of William Faulkner). Petersen A7. New York: Jonathan Cape, (1930). Octavo, original cloth, original dust jacket. FIRST ISSUE, with "I" in the first line of page 11 dropped, in first state binding with lettering unbroken.

      Jonathan Cape, Harrison Smith 1930 - New York: Jonathan Cape, Harrison Smith, (1930). First edition, second issue, with capital I correctly aligned on page 11.NF/VG+. A little discoloration/dustiness within the groove of the front joint; minor spine lean and a light crease to spine. A few small spots in the margin of page 11. But book itself remains an altogether fresh and crisp example. Dust jacket is in similarly nice condition, with the following minor flaws: light wear to spine ends and along spine folds, trivial smudge/spot or two to front cover, mild crease to front flap. For some unknown reason (there being no tear), a former owner placed a 3" piece of tape on the inside of the dust jacket. That tape has been removed, but a light tape shadow remains - again, on the inside of the jacket. Original price of $2.50 present. Lovely copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club

      London: George G. Harrap, [1930]. - The First Brock Illustrated Editionof Dickens' First BookIn a Charming 1930s Pictorial Binding by Riviére & Son[RIVIÉRE & SON, Binders]. DICKENS, Charles. The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club. Illustrated in Color by C.E. Brock. London: George G. Harrap, [1930]. First Brock illustrated edition. Large octavo. xx, 687, [1, blank] pp. Sixteen full-page color plates, including frontispiece. Bound ca. 1930 by Riviére & Son (stamp-signed on front turn-in) in full navy blue morocco with gilt-ruled border and large, central gilt-ruled pictorial panel of multicolored morocco inlays reproducing "Take this little villain away!" the plate facing page 134. Raised bands with gilt tooling, compartments decorated in gilt. Board edges and turn-ins decoratively gilt-tooled. A splendid copy.The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club was Dickens' first published novel, originally serialized in monthly parts by Chapman & Hall April 1836 through November 1837, and published in book form on November 17, 1837. Charles Dickens, struggling to establish himself as an author, had been selling stories to the Monthly Magazine and the Evening Chronicle that were popular and earned him an enthusiastic reception. Impressed, publisher Chapman & Hall approached him. The result was the creation of Mr. Pickwick, and an illustrious career. Dickens was twenty-five years old.C[harles]. E[dmund]. Brock (1870-1938) was a widely published English line artist and book illustrator who earned his first book commission at age twenty. He became a very successful illustrator, best known for his line work, initially in the tradition of Hugh Thomson, but he was also a skilled colorist. Brock's work varied with the sort of story he was illustrating, some of it refined and described as "sensitive to the delicate, teacup-and-saucer primness and feminine outlook of the early Victorian novelists," while other work was "appreciative of the healthy, boisterous, thoroughly English characters," i.e. soldiers, rustics, and "horsey types." Other illustrations were grotesqueries drawn to amuse children looking at or reading storybooks.Kelly, p. 164.

        Gulliver's Travels. Illustrated by Rex Whistler.

      London: The Cresset Press, 1930 - 2 volumes bound in 1, folio. Recent green morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, titles to spine gilt, 5 raised bands, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Housed in a green cloth solander case. A little mild creasing to spine. An superb copy. Volume I with colour frontispiece and 5 plates, and 2 maps. Volume II with colour frontispiece and 6 plates, 3 maps, and 1 diagram. Head and tail pieces throughout. First Cresset Press edition, first impression. One of 195 copies on handmade paper from a limited edition of 205 numbered copies. The short-lived Cresset Press, co-founded by John Eldred Howard in 1927 and run by Dennis Cohen and A. I. Meyers until 1931, produced fine editions and reprints of the classics and Continental literature. Gulliver's Travels is one of the Press's finest books. The illustrative style of Rex Whistler (1905–1944), eschewing the experimentalism of the 1920s, found its inspiration in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and so was well matched to Swift's classic. In this book Whistler employed his favourite device of setting most of the illustrations within a highly decorative rococo marginal frame. A beautiful copy of this masterpiece of the book arts

        Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam

      Thomas Y. Crowell Company 1930 - 172 pp., The First and Fourth. Renderings in English Verse by Edward FitzGerald. Illustrations by Willy Pogany. New York: Thomas Y. Crowell Company. Publication date - 1930. About this Work: When Edward Fitzgerald translated these 11th Century Persian Poems in 1859, they became something of a sensation after one admiring reader passed them on to his friends--a circle that included Browning, Rosetti and Tennyson. Omar Khayyam was famous in his own day as a mathematician, astronomer, and philosopher, and although his mathematical studies were once hugely influential in the West, he is known to much of the world today as a poet, and his Rubaiyat as the Chief exemplar of the Arabic verse form "roba'i," a poem composed in quatrains in which the first, second and fourth lines rhyme. Description: 'RARE' Fine leather binding with gold embossed /engraved title / design on spine edge and front board, beautiful numerous color plates and black/white engraving on pages as seen in image, gilt gold top leaf edge. Dimensions: 6 1/2" x 9" x 1". Condition: Very Good; tight spine, 3 3/4" surface break in fine tan leather binding at upper front board hinge (surface only, hardcover securely attached), 2 1/2" surface break in fine leather binding at upper rear board hinge (surface only, hardcover securely attached), varied surface coloration, light scratches, spine crown/heel lightly bumped/rubbed, upper corners tips finely chipped. This book is a very nice strong & tight book; minor frailty at outermost perimeter of book as described. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Paris: The Black Sun Press, 1930. - Quarto. Original printed wrappers. Very faint shadow to spine area around slipcase finger- pulls, otherwise a fine copy, in rather scuffed and rubbed silver foil covered slipcase, with a significant portion of lower (or upper) panel snagged (but present and still whole). First edition, trade issue. From a total edition of 283 numbered copies, this is one of two hundred copies with the text printed on Holland. Now acknowledged as among the defining poetic works of the American 20th century, THE BRIDGE also marks the debut of Walker Evans' photographs as book illustrations. Although Crane and the Crosbys had initially planned to use one of Joseph Stella's iconic paintings as the frontispiece, and a corresponding proof of the title pulled, they opted instead to include the photographs by Evans, who Crane had actually met at the Brooklyn Bridge in 1928. Crane was engaged with the decision, taking a careful hand in the placement of the photographs in relation to the text, and pleased with the final result, noting in a letter to Caresse Crosby: "I think Evans is the most living, vital photographer of any whose work I know. More and more I rejoice that we decided on his pictures rather than Stella’s." While one may surely regret that the edition with Stella's frontispiece didn't come about, the conjoining of Evans' photographs with Crane's poem has proved a durable aesthetic marriage, particularly after the selection of photographs was revised for the subsequent Liveright edition.

The circular cut out forms display the title: KIM in gilt letters and gilt dots, the central form bears a gilt sunburst type design formed of small dots, around a larger gilt dot, these are repeated in each corner of the front and back covers, the mounted title form on the back covers does not display the lettered word Kim, but does have the sunburst design on the central form; multicolored, sewn headbands; inner leather turn-ins with green slik endpapers, and green, brown and gold marbled flyleaves. The binding is unsigned, but possibly designed by Schmied, who also used Crette and Dunand to design and execute bindings for his books; the design also seems to echo some of Paul Bonet's early work, in the use of the circular forms with lettering. The spines show fading, some rubbing to the leather surfaces of the spines, spine ends, outer hinges. In dark green & gold-flecked paper-covered slipcases, with brown morocco leather facings. The slipcase for volume one, shows splitting, which has been covered with green cloth tape, at some point to reinforce the edges. Weight: 15 lbs. Postage is extra on this item.
