        Fotografický obzor. Collection of photo supplements.

      A. Majital; Svaz Ceskoslovenských klubu fotografu amatéru 1930-1937, Prague - 2 volumes, 27 cm. Title page (from 1930 issue), and 630 gravure reproductions of photographs that appeared as an 8-page supplement to each monthly issue of Fotographicky Obzor for the years 1930-1937, collected and specially bound in two quarto volumes. Pagination, where present, is not consecutive because signatures from different numbers have been interleaved for binding purposes. Bound in half cloth over decorated paper boards. A bit thumbed, but very good overall. A compact and probably unique illustrated survey of these glory years of Czech photography. While professional Czech photographers between the wars made their livings from portraits and souvenir books, the amateurs pushed the limits of photography as an art. The greatest of these, Sudek and Ruzicka, exhibited with the "Amateur Photography Club," and published their work in the Rozhledy Fotografa Amatera and its successor, Fotographicky obzor.

        Caesar

      Putnam 1930 - London and New York first edition F/F.Red cloth black lettering ,no inscriptions foxing or stains ,88 pages ,1 colour frontispiece ,13 black and white illustrations by harry rountree. The book was printed by the westminster press in the uk who printed separate wrappers for the the UK and the US markets,the US priced at US$2 and the UK 5/-. This copy has the US wrapper .There appears to be a mystery about the true UK first as up to now a few serious collectors including terry zobeck who is soon to publish the difinitive bibliography have been unable to find a copy .All the copies we have found are Ists with the cheap wrapper C1932 which has titles listed on the rear panel not published until 1932 ,so if you have a copy with the true Ist wrapper let us know as this has become the holy grain for o'brian collectors. Wed love to know if a copy exists .The wrapper would almost certainly have been printed at the same time as the US ,but perhaps something happened to them .Its unlikely that Putnams would have printed more US wrappers than the UK and I have seen 6 copies of the US of which I have 3 ,so until a copy with the UK wrapper turns up we have to assume that at this point the true Ist is the US ,but terry and I would love to be proved wrong. The book turns up quite often but the wrapper almost always is chipped or stained or aged which makes this item rare [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        U.S.S. ALGONQUIN C. G. 328 Black & White Images.

      Ca 1930, [Seattle, WA]: - An extensive, albeit unofficial, visual record of life aboard the USS Algonquin, commissioned as a Revenue Cutter in 1897 and retired late in 1930. The Algonquin operated along the East Coast of the United States with additional assignments in the West Indies and the Gulf of Mexico. Later, in cooperation with the U.S. Navy at the onset of World War I, the Algonquin patrolled and defended Chesapeake Bay, with subsequent assignment to European waters, escorting over 750 ships safely in her rounds between Gibraltar, England and the Azores. In 1919, the Algonquin was transferred to the West Coast, assigned to the 13th Naval District, which meant patrolling the Pacific Northwest, as well as the islands and coast of Alaska, which included protection of endangered seals. Evidence suggests this album compiled by Farrell Harvey, a documented Algonquin crewman [F 1c] during the late 20s/early 30s, while the ship was stationed in the PNW. These primarily uncaptioned photographs illustrate the rough and ready life of sailors such as Harvey during their shipboard tour, with divers images of the crew, their drills and daily tasks, and significant occasions such as the Equatorial Line Crossing Ceremony. Many photographs show sister ships and other vessels, coastline scenery, whaling, and people encountered in the tropics and divers scenes while patrolling along the Pacific Northwest Coast. A wonderful primary source for seeing the life of a Coastie aboard a cutter during the late 1920s, and into the beginning of the 1930s. Photographs generally Very Good or better. Album - Very Good. Brown suede album with hand-painted suede covers with suede ties, with front cover having a hand-printed title ÒPhotographs U.S.S. Algonquin C.G.Ó & Coast Guard emblem. Oblong format: 8" x 11-1/2". 10 pp. autographs pages, unused except for five penciled names (all dated 1930) + 40 leaves of black mounting paper, unpaginated, with last two leaves unused. Images mostly snapshot size of 2-1/2Ó x 3-1/2Ó, or 3-/12Ó x 4-1/2Ó. Laid in: A menu from Thanksgiving dinner 1929, one 5Ó x 7Ó portrait of the crew, two 8Ó x 10Ó photographs, and a 1955 officialÕs Seattle Gold Cup committee ribbon [with Harvey's name-tag at top].

      n.p., [c. 1930] - The fantastic fairy shop, set in a dark, mysterious grove of tall trees. William M[itcheson] Timlin was born in Northumberland, England, and studied art in Newcastle before following his parents to South Africa, where he completed his studies in art and architecture. He then practiced as an architect, designing a number of major public buildings in Kimberley; at the same time he worked as an artist, producing paintings, etchings and pastels of conventional subjects, in addition to the watercolor fantasies for which is he best known. He also wrote stories and music, and did periodical illustrations. In 1923 he published "The Ship that Sailed to Mars", which has become a fantasy classic. His "The Building of the Fairy City" remained unfinished at his death, apart from a few elegant and imaginative watercolors, such as the one offered here Image approx. 7-1/2 x 6 inches.
