        Histoire des Arts Anciens de la Chine

      Paris: G. Van Oest, 1930. Four volumes, large quarto, with a total of 476 photographic plates, uncut as issued in the publisher's card covers with printed dust-jackets; covers a bit worn, a very good set. AN IMPORTANT RECORD OF TRADITIONAL CHINESE ARTS. Scarce and historically important set documenting the art and architecture of China, including hundreds of photographic plates from the author's personal archive. Osvald Sirén (1879-1966) was a pre-eminent sinologist and art historian of his generation. After completing a thesis on the European Renaissance, Sirén was drawn to oriental art through a personal interest in Theosophy. So began a life-long interest, of which Histoire des Arts Anciens de la Chine is a crowning achievement. Sirén was appointed professor at Stockholm University, although he lectured little and preferred to communicated through published works. Furthermore, like many art historians of the era, he advised private collectors and acquired artworks of significance during his travels in China. Sirén visited China several times between the wars, travelling widely and documenting remote and inaccessible sites. The present work reproduces many of the author's photographs, and as such forms a unique visual archive of Chinese art and architecture (sadly some of the sites documented in this series - including remote shrines and Buddhist wall paintings - did not survive the ravages of the cultural revolution). The set comprises the following, uniformly published under the auspices of the Musée Guimet: I. La period préhistorique l'époque Tcheou l'époque tch'ou at Ts'in 1929 II. L'époque Han et les six dynasties 1929 III. La sculpture de l'époque Han a l'époque Ming 1930 IV. L'architecture 1930.

        Forty Famous Cocktails : Being a Compendium of Reliable Recipes Carefully Compiled For Use In This Arid Era. Engraved with Humble Apologies to that Master Engraver John Held Jr. [Title from recto]

      New York: Colonial Sales Corp., n.d. circa 1930. Two pieces of printed pictorial cardboard, glued together on three sides and with view windows cut on both sides, and with double-sided sliding cardboard insert with printed recipes. 9.5 cm. x 14 cm. The smaller and simultaneously printed version of the otherwise identical movable cocktail recipe book featuring humorous illustrations in the style of celebrated barroom artist John Held (engraved by John Boland), and an imaginative sliding display for the cocktail recipes. The illustration on the verso of this piece is captioned, "The Road to Perdition or a Scene from the Back Room when Life Was Simple." The mention of "this arid era" in the title suggests a pre-repeal publication date. Light wear to cardboard edges, with additional wear to insert pull-tab at top, some light staining, else very good. Scarce. [OCLC locates only a single institutional copy of either versions of this work, at SMU's DeGolyer Library].

      MGM 1930 - Vintage original 41 x 27" (102 x 67 cm.) one sheet poster, USA. Marion Davies, Lawrence Gray, Walter Catlett, Ilka Chase, dir: Harry Beaumont; MGM. Coming from the "Ziegfeld Follies", Marion Davies was allowed, in this lavish early musical, to display some of her comedic and musical abilities, unlike in some of the turgid historical romances partner William Randolph Hearst often required that she appear in. MGM pulled out the stops with top notch art direction and costuming set in the then-not too distant past of the 1890s. The last reel was in two-strip Technicolor. This movie opened the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood. Wonderful period caricature graphics by famous artist John Held, Jr., and art portrait of popular star Marion Davies. On linen, some touch-up at folds. A bit of soiling in the white background of the drawing. There are two 2" (5 cm.) inner tears to the left side of Marion's cheek in her portrait at top. NEAR FINE.

        Typed Letter Signed, 4to, on stamped "R.A.F. Mount Batten, Plymouth," stationery, Nov. 7, 1930.

      - Dr. Cooper explains that Lawrence, "seeing two old people in difficulty with a car which wouldn't start, he offered to help them but the handle [hand crank] of the car on a backfire hit him in the wrist & broke it." The incident occurred in March, 1927, near Cranwell, but since Lawrence did not take the needed time to allow the wrist to heal, it never fully recovered. The letter shows LawrenceÕs wit and good humor about his own accident as well as his concern for his good friend, Charlotte Shaw. Lawrence refers to Charlotte Payne-Townshend Shaw, reformer, women's rights advocate and wife of author George Bernard Shaw. Lawrence writes to Charlotte's Shaw's doctor , William Cooper, who took care of Lawrence's broken wrist. In this upbeat letter with a literary reference to American author Henry James, Lawrence gives an update on Charlotte as well as his own injured wrist. At the end, he asks for the cost of the bill which he supposes Charlotte would have paid had she not become indisposed from an accident. In part, "and then the fun began. Dear Cooper was to presume on a very short acquaintance. Dear Dr. Cooper lined you up with a class you probably detest. Dear Mr. Cooper is stiff. So let's begin again. I was going to write just after the occasion; only I was detracked suddenly by the accident to Mrs. Shaw.she is not so long or quite recovered from a scarlet-fever incident at Buxton; (Henry James was the putative parent of that last sentence).she bumps down in Hanover square and will be tied by the leg for more weeks.I had wanted to say thank you for examining me that morning. Mrs. Shaw and I thought of it on the spur of the moment.What you had said was most assuring; as it is not likely to get worse I snap my fingers at it. Half an arm is plenty for one's old age, and I have still and arm and a half. Nevertheless, if fate does bring me to London (No wise man would prophesy anything concerning me) I will attend on you.It has been less painful.but do not flatter your art - it is faith and happiness acting through favorable judgement. Try telling a patient that she or he will get worse, and see it happen! Before Mrs. Shaw I could not discuss finance; she would have felt herself liable for bringing me.My scandalous life of enjoyment is not to be justified, but palliated perhaps, by paying for itself.let me know how much I am in your debt *." The asterisk is actually the "@" symbol and points to another below the signature with the following explanation. "Financially, I mean. Morally I am the assessor, and delighted." In his hand he writes and signs, "Yours T. E. Shaw." With envelope docketed by William Cooper explaining the letter.

        The World in 2030 A.D

      London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1930. Quarto, with a frontispiece and eight plates; a fine copy in the original black cloth, lettered in crimson. Futurist predictions come true? First edition of this extravagant vision of the future. The first Earl of Birkenhead (1872-1930) was a dashing figure, a 'swashbuckler' and 'ready subject for the caricaturist,' (DNB) who had a lengthy career as Solicitor General, and after 1919, Lord Chancellor. Reading The World in 2030 the knowledge that Birkenhead was drinking himself to death whilst writing comes as little surprise. It is an extraordinary work, displaying the occasional prescience of the unhinged. Amongst a very odd collection of statements about ectogenesis, the unlikelihood of future wars due to trans-national integration, scientific relativism, and the creation of a Florida-style 'playground for all Europe' in the basin of the Sahara, there is the bald announcement that atomic energy will be harnessed, that eugenics will be commonplace and the genes mapped, and that a 'mad dictator, jealous of Western progress, may precipitate a war, which will finally burn up and destroy Western civilisation'. Best of all, advances in television will mean that a busy Englishman will be able to follow 'an Australian test-match'. Accompanying the work are nine futurist plates by E. McKnight Kauffer.

Kulisch wurde Mitglied und später Vorsitzender der neuen Organisation WAPLITE (Freie Akademie proletarischer Literatur) die sich für eine eigenständige, aus der Provinzialität gehobenene ukrainischen Literatur unabhängig von Moskau einsetzte. 1928 musste Waplite aufgelöst werden. Kulisch wurde 1934 aus der KP ausgechlossen, deportiert und 1937 erschossen.- Alexander Jakowlewitsch Tairow (1885-1950) sowjetischer Regisseur und Theatertheoretiker. Er begründete das Moskauer Kammertheater. Als Schüler Stanislawskis und Beobachter Meyerholds forderte Tairow in Konsequenz seiner Erfahrungen und Überlegungen ein von ihm so genanntes "synthetisches Theater" als Antwort auf den Naturalismus (These) und die Stilbühne (Antithese) seinerzeit. Tairow definierte sein Theater der Synthese als "neorealistisch". Er hatte nach anfänglichen Schwierigkeiten großen Erfolg sowohl im In- als auch im Ausland. Tarow war mit der Schauspielerin Alissa Koonen, die in diesem Stück verheiratet.

        Hector; la novela de ambiente Mexico

      Marpha, TX: the author, 1930. Hardcover. 377p., first edition, original wrappers rebound in black leatherette, gilt titles and bands at head and tail, bookmark ribbon bound-in, blank white endpapers replacing the original cover illustration, text in Spanish, very good rebound first edition. In spite of lacking the colorful pictorial covers of the original paper edition this is an attractive copy of a very scarce title. Gram is the pseudonym of David G. Ramirez, a Mexican priest who lived in San Antonio during the Cristero War for a decade starting around 1925. One of the rarest titles in Mexican American literature because of the imprint. We would not be surprised if the imprint were faked, and the book was actually published in northern Mexico, unlike subsequent editions

        My Early Life

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1930. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. This book comes from the personal collection of Churchill's bibliographer, Ronald I. Cohen. This is a collector-worthy copy of 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 easy to read of his many books. An original 1930 review likened it to a "beaker of Champagne." That effervescent charm endures; a more contemporary writer called it "a racy, humorous, self-deprecating classic of autobiography." 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. Finding superior copies in unrestored, original bindings is increasingly challenging. Here then is a noteworthy copy for collectors - an unrestored first edition, first printing, first state, first binding state in excellent condition. Edition, impression, and state are confirmed here 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, tight, and unusually clean, with nicely rounded spine, bright gilt, sharp corners, and virtually no wear. Spine presentation is superior for the edition, with only slight color shift between the covers and spine, which retains quite good color. The sole exterior blemishes are a small whitish mark to the lower front cover and a tiny black dot to the upper front cover below the author's name. The contents match the binding - atypically clean and bright. We find no spotting and no previous ownership marks. Searching for flaws, we can report only slight dust soiling to the top edge. The binding is protected with a fine replica of the original bright plum dust jacket, which is fitted with a removable, archival quality clear cover.  Bibliographic reference: Cohen A91.1.a, Woods/ICS A37(aa), Langworth p.131.

        HELL HARBOR (1930)

      USA 1930 - Vintage original 14 x 36" (36 x 91 cm.) insert poster, USA. Lupe Velez, Jean Hersholt, John Holland, Gibson Gowland, dir: Henry King; Inspiration Pictures/United Artists. The story concerned a girl, abused by her father, who dreams of escaping her dull island life and going to Havana. Promoted at the time as the "first all-talking all outdoor picture." The company went to Florida to film much of the action (rare in those days) and it is distinctive for the excellent cinematography and use of early sound. Henry King spotted the very unusual-looking Rondo Hatton, who was assigned as a reporter to cover the filming. Hatton became a cult figure in such horror films as "The Creeper". Lupe Velez and John Holland share a torrid moment portraying the image on this poster. Paper-backed, NEAR FINE.

        PUTTIN' ON THE RITZ (1930)

      USA 1930 - Vintage original 14 x 22" (35 x 56 cm.) window card poster, USA. Harry Richman, Joan Bennett, James Gleason, Aileen Pringle, Lilyan Tashman, dir: Edward Sloman; United Artists. Wonderful jazz age graphics highlight this lively poster for the early musical featuring the songs of Irving Berlin. It was the age old story of a Vaudeville performer who becomes a big success, forgetting the "little people" he knew on his way up. The film also featured songs which star Harry Richman ("The idol of Broadway" as we learn here) wrote. Popular singer as well, Richman would appear in a few films and contribute to the song scores of others. Though the film is extant, the two-strip Technicolor sequences only remain in black-and-white. Paper-backed, exceptionally conserved to address minor internal creasing, with touch-ups to some lettering, displays near to mint, NEAR FINE.
