        Outrageous, Houdini focused archive: "An Exhibit of Mystic Lore" historically documenting the magician's world from the turn of the century through the 1930's

      24 showboards, 22" x 28", purchased from the son of Herman L. Weber: "In the 1930's and '40's my father, Herman L. Weber, traveled with his magic stage show from coast to coast twice. Prior to his shows my father or his assistants would line up my dad's 24 showboards, "An Exhibit of Mystic Lore," in theatre lobbies or along the hallways of the colleges and schools where he performed. The heavyweight 22 x 28 inch matboards are dark gray in color, although they tend to appear brown under this lighting. An Exhibit of Mystic Lore is now 70 to 80 years old and some displayed items are yellowed by age or stained by deteriorating glue, yet many of the articles and photos are irreplaceable collectibles well worth having. Despite the passage of time, An Exhibit of Mystic Lore has not lost its capacity to entertain." A full set of scans of the showboards are available upon request. All the items are glued down to a board, but many of them will pop off easily. We have discussed the archive with a conservat

        Journal de Maximo Rodriguez, premier Européen ayant habité Tahiti (Tautira). 1774-1775

      Papeete, 1930. Octavo; in the original printed wrappers, faded, but a very good copy. The first European resident. A very scarce book, printed by the government press in Tahiti, the first complete edition of the private journal of Maximo Rodriguez, who arrived in Tahiti in 1774 and stayed for over a year. This marks the work out as an important insight into pre-colonial Tahiti, and Rodriguez's journal is the earliest sustained reflection on Tahitian life by a European. It had previously been serialised in successive issues of the Bulletin de la Société des études océaniennes. The journal (written in Spanish but here translated) dates from the last major attempt by the Spanish government to assert their influence in the region. The voyage of the Aquila in 1772 had brought back some Tahitians to be instructed in the Catholic faith, and a second voyage of 1774 was mounted to return them to instruct their compatriots in Christianity. Rodriguez, a marine, travelled as an interpreter on this second voyage. His lengthy stay, so soon after the discovery of the islands, marks him out as one of the most important of the early European visitors, and his account is 'un document unique sur le premier séjour prolongé d'un Européen à Tahiti' (O'Reilly-Reitman). His diary, originally presented to the library of the Royal Geographical Society by no less a figure than FitzRoy of the Beagle (who had been given it by Rodriguez's daughter in 1835), was rediscovered by the Pacific historian Corney.

        Zapiski generala-evreia [Notes of a Jewish General]. With an inscription by the author

      Paris: self-published, 1930. Octavo (19 x 14.5 cm). Rebound, with part of original wrapper affixed to front board; 250, [6] pp. Signed and inscribed by the author on the front fly leaf to an Aleksandr Aleksandrovich Krotiakoi (?), "Dai Bog, chtoby etot god vozsiial radost'iu i shchast'em dlia vsekh obezdolennykh." Binding scuffed and soiled; traces of moisture to top edge of last half of text (barely affecting pages); occasional light foxing; owner inscription of collector P. P. Dunkan. Grulev was a Jewish Russian military leader, writer and journalist, and a veteran of the Russo-Japanese War.

Born to Jewish parents in the Vitebsk region, he was able to receive a good military education, finishing the Academy of the General Headwuarters (General'nyi shtab) in 1888 and rising to the rank of General. In great depth he describes life in the Pale of Settlement, the region of the Russian Empire where Jews were allowed to settle, his years as an army officer, service in Siberia, the Caucasus, Turkestan, as well as in the Far East during the Russo-Japanese War and the ensuing years. According to a printed note, all revenue from the sale of this book was to be donated to the cause of Zionism. Rare signed.

A description of an likely mid-1930’s exhibition of Cambridge’s cultural artifacts of note: “A Cambridge resident myself, I got on the London train as soon as the exhibition opened. And perused the objects that had preceded me to the metropolis. When I entered Goldsmith’s Mall I was welcomed by local sounds as well as by local sights. Fancy my coming all this way to see what I might have seen home.” Forster lists highlights of visit, including a bust of Charles II, various paintings, “and â€" more moving than all of them emotionally â€" is the Essex Cup itself.” [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Photographe de Paris (First Edition with Captions Booklet)

      Paris: E.Weyhe, 1930. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Very Good. This is a first edition, first printing of Atget\'s iconic photobook \"Photographe de Paris\" published by E.Weyhe, New York in 1930. The book was also published simultaneously by Verlag Henri Jonquières, Paris and Leipzig, in 1930 with the German edition, \"Lichtbilder\" released in a limited edition of 1000. Berenice Abbott purchased the contents of Atget\'s studio in Paris -- 1,300 glass negatives and 7,000 prints assembled in albums -- following his death in 1927. She brought the collection to New York with the backing of Julian Levy. Together, they introduced Atget\'s work to the American public in a series of exhibitions and publications. The book features a frontispiece portrait of Atget by Berenice Abbott and 96 stunning full-page collotypes from the original Atget negatives. Pierre Mac-Orlan contributed an essay to the book and his essay concludes, \"For many among us Atget\'s Paris is now no more than a memory whose delicacy is already mysterious. It is worth all the books written on the subject, and without doubt will inspire others\" In his book, \"The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century\", Andrew Roth states, \"Over time, Atget\'s photographs have come to be seen by many as the beginning of modern photography.\" Measuring approximately 11 x 9.5 inches, the book is bound in the original burgundy colored cloth boards issued without a dust jacket. Included with the book is a captions booklet printed in a six-page gathering fold under plain leaf at the rear pastedown. The condition of the book is Very Good+ with some rubbing to the cover, spine, and tips as well as some very slight soiling. The internals are excellent with a solid binding. There is a previous owner\'s inscription on the first free endpaper which evidences foxing along with the front inside cover. There is also some age toning to the page edges that does not affect the images. Overall, this is a highly collectible copy of one of the greatest photobooks ever published. Cited in \"The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century\".

        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.

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.
