        Collected Poems.

      New York: Random House, 1930 - Octavo. Original buckram, gilt title label to spine, top edge gilt. Spine somewhat tanned, label scuffed, ends and corners a little rubbed, but a very good copy, sound and internally fresh. First collected edition, signed limited issue, number 925 of 1,000 copies signed by the author, additionally inscribed, "To Jerry Johnson from his old old friend Robert Frost" on the front free endpaper. Professor Lewis Jerome Johnson (1876-1952), known as "Jay", was a Massachusetts-born civil engineer who had coincided with Frost at Harvard. He later taught at Harvard and MIT, and designed the Harvard Stadium. This copy has some Frost ephemera laid in, including two photographs of Frost captioned as being "taken by J.A.J. about 1935" (Jerome Allen Johnson, his son). This edition, which constituted Frost's first collected edition, brings together poems from his early collections: A Boy's Will, North of Boston, Mountain Interval, New Hampshire, and West-Running Brook. The signed limited edition is not uncommon, but personally inscribed copies are very scarce. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

Einband nach Entwurf von E. R. Weiß. Das Papier fertigte die Chemnitzer Papierfabrik zu Einsiedel. Druck durch Offizin W. Büxenstein / Berlin. 200 Exemplare wurden auf feinstem Einsiedel-Bütten gedruckt und in Ganzleder gebunden". - "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können."

        Television, To-Day and To-Morrow.

      Sir Isaac Pitman, London. 1930 - First edition. Foreword by John L. Baird. Octavo. pp xxiv, 130, 32 adverts. Photographs, including some of the "Baird televisor". One of the pioneering works on a medium that clearly had little future. Seeking publicity, Baird visited the Daily Express newspaper to promote his invention. The news editor was terrified and he was quoted by one of his staff as saying: "For God's sake, go down to reception and get rid of a lunatic who's down there. He says he's got a machine for seeing by wireless! Watch him — he may have a razor on him."Some off-setting onto the covers from the pictorial dustwrapper. Edges faintly spotted. Very good in the rare dustwrapper which is good only, being heavily dusty, rubbed and chipped. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        RUBÁIYÁT OF OMAR KHAYYÁM

      London: George G. Harrap & Co, 1930. No. 559 OF 750 COPIES for England (and 500 for America) signed by Pogany. This is an attractively bound and illustrated edition of an enduring classic involving a Persian text, an English translator, and a Hungarian illustrator. The text is an uncertain but beautiful amalgam of the Medieval and the 19th century. Although we know that Omar Khayyám was an 11th century astrologer and mathematician, we are less certain about his poetic accomplishments, and very unsure if the text here was his work. What we do know is that the poetry is early, that it may have been Omar's, that it was translated into English in 1859 by Edward FitzGerald (1809-83), and that this lush and evocative translation has become a widely acclaimed work whose popularity has endured to the present day. First published anonymously, this translation is the chief work of FitzGerald, whose great wealth permitted him to devote his entire adult life to literature, especially translation. The present deluxe edition features cinematic illustrations by the Hungarian-born Pogany (1882-1955), who was especially drawn to exotic subjects, and interpreted the "Rubaiyat" in pictures several times. The illustrations here are less impressionistic that earlier renditions, and have a more modern aethestic with Art Deco influences. Pogany immigrated to America in 1914, where he found success as an illustrator and set designer for the Metropolitan Opera and Broadway productions. The poem affixed to the endpaper praises the poet's "stream of balm and music . . . made richer still" by "Old Fitz." It is the work of solicitor, critic, and poet Theodore Watts-Dunton (1832-1914), whose greatest contribution to literature was his friendship to Algernon Swinburne, whom he rescued from alcoholism and lived with for 30 years.. 270 x 205 mm.

Signed in pencil to lower and the location is inscribed on the reverse. Signed. On wove. Condition is typical for a picture of this age including some mild discolouration and pin holes to margins.Provenance: From the Estate of Edith Lawrence Born in Surrey in 1890. Lawrence was a painter, designer, printmaker and teacher. She attended the Slade School of Art from 1910-14, where she was a prizewinning student. She went on the spend a period of time in St. Ives and returned to the Slade in 1916 where she studied under the Canadian born artist Percyval Tudor Hart and also began exhibiting at the Royal Academy and New English Art Club. In 1917 she took up a teaching position at Runston Hill School and in 1920 she met Claude Flight, the founder of the Grosvenor School of Modern Art. In 1925 she moved into Claude Flight's studio and the two shared an exhibition of textiles and linocuts at the Redfern Gallery in 1926. In 1927 they set up an interior decorating business trying out different methods of linocut, wallpaper, wall hangings and textiles. Edith spent many summers with Claude at his Neolithic chalk cave in the banks of the Seine at Chantemesle, that he had purchased for 300 francs after his time in France during WW1. Here he taught the art of the linocut at informal summer schools. During WWII Claude and Edith lived in London working from their studio off Baker Street. Later fleeing from the blitz they moved to a cottage in Donhead St Andrew. She spent much of her later life at Worth Matravers, the surrounding area becoming a source of inspiration for many of her paintings. In 1973, the year of her death Edith held a solo exhibition at the University of Hull, which was later followed by a memorial exhibition in the same year at the Parkin Gallery dedicated to both Edith and Claude.

        The Castle. Translated from the German by Willa and Edwin Muir.

      London Martin Secker 1930 - First edition in English, 8vo., xii, 450, [2]pp., with half title, ink ownership to front free endpaper, publisher's blue cloth, lettered in gilt, a trifle sunned at extremities, spotting to fore-edge, dust-jacket, superb professional restoration to head and base of spine and corners, otherwise very bright indeed. This is the first English translation of any of Kafka's books, preceding English editions of The Trial and Metamorphosis by some seven years, making it by far the rarer of the titles. First published in German in 1926, The Castle is the last and longest work of Franz Kafka (1883-1924), written in the final two years of his life but left unfinished at his death. Kafka's novel adapts the mediæval grail narrative, replacing the quest for the grail with his protagonist's surreal struggle against a secluded and secretive bureaucracy of the sort encountered by the author in the years shortly after the fall of the Habsburg monarchy. Kafka's intended interpretation of this novel has remained the subject of debate; this first English edition chooses to focus on the text's religious symbolism, with some critics equating the attempts to reach the castle with a search for salvation, rather than the partially autobiographical nature of the book, which Kafka began in the first person. This translation is drawn from the first German edition, including the posthumous alterations made by Kafka's confidante Max Brod in preparation for publication.
