        William S. Schwartz, a Study

      Chicago: L. M. Stein, Publisher, 1930. Second Edition . Hardcover. Very Good/No Dustjacket, as Issued. 23 x 28 cm. . The first edition was published in August 1930. This second edition was published two months later in October, 1930. Both editions are extremely rare. The first edition has an original lithograph on page 5. In that first edition there is a statement that the lithograph will not be included in any subsequent editions. The publisher kept his word, and so even though this second edition has a reference to the original lithograph in the list of illustrations, it has this reference only because the page listing the illustrations was reproduced unchanged in the second edition. A color photocopy of this litho is laid in here, reproduced from the original litho to be found in a first edition copy (see the single sheet reproduced in the photo here). Both editions are as rare as hens teeth. Printed on fine paper, many full page illustrations. William S. Schwartz was born in Smorgon, Russia February 23, 1896. His studies and travels were extensive as was his body of work and musical endeavors. Schwartz studied at the Vilna Art School in Russia with a four-year scholarship before immigrating to the United States at the age of 17. He lived with his sister in New York for eight months before joining his brother in Omaha. There he became a house painter and continued his study in the fine arts at the Kellom School. Under the instruction of J. Laurie Wallace, Schwartz studied life drawing, portraiture and painting. He later moved to Chicago where he continued his lessons at the Art Institute and assumed the role of principle tenor in various vaudeville, radio, concert and operatic performances. His musical career supported his tuition at the Institute throughout the 1920's when he became a well-recognized painter. Schwartz's musical career continued to influence his works of abstract compositions, most notably in his series Symphonic Forms. His paintings have been closely sourced to the writings and philosophies of Wassily Kandinsky who explored the relations of music, spirituality, color and abstract form. After graduating from the Art Institute, Schwartz continued to exhibit there annually in group shows until, in 1926, he held his first solo-exhibition at the Institute. He continued to exhibit extensively in Chicago, Madison, Dallas, New York, Detroit and at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art. Schwartz received numerous awards and prizes throughout his career across the United States. In 1930 Manuel Chapman published an extensive study, William S. Schwartz and In 1984, Hirschl & Adler Galleries Inc. held an exhibition of Schwartz's work for which Doug Dreishpoon wrote an eloquent introduction to the catalog. William S. Schwartz died in Chicago in 1977.

        ORIGINAL 1930 TYPED LETTER, SIGNED (re: The Maltese Falcon, The Glass Key & The Thin Man)

      1930. Hammett, Dashiell. ONE PAGE TYPED LETTER, SIGNED ["Sincerely, Dashiell Hammett"]. 135 East 38th Street, New York, April 21st, 1930. Highly desirable unpublished early letter from one of Hammett's most creatively fruitful years in which he makes mention of all three of his greatest novels. To "Dear Mr. Hammett" (no relation despite the shared surname), it reads: "Thanks a lot for the latest of your always kind notes. The Falcon seems to be going over pretty well and I think Earl Boothe's going to produce it on the stage in the Fall if I can get time off from the current book to do the dramatization. The next book, 'The Glass Key' is scheduled for publication in September or October, and then 'The Thin Man' and 'The Darkened Face' in February and August, 1931. Beyond that deponent saith not. Best of luck to you with the poetry and otherwise." The letter, written only two months after the book publication of THE MALTESE FALCON has some irony to it as Dashiell Hammett's precision in rattling off titles and publication dates bore no reality to what came to pass. THE GLASS KEY wouldn't be published until 1931; THE THIN MAN didn't appear until 1934. As for "The Darkened Face" -- there is a fragment of a manuscript with that title at the Harry Ransom Center, University of Texas at Austin. It now appears to have been a planned novel which never came to full fruition. Nor did Hammett write a stage version of THE MALTESE FALCON for Earl Boothe; instead the novel was almost immediately adapted to film, released by Warner Brothers Studios as a pre-code 1931 crime drama full of sexual innuendo starring Ricardo Cortez and Bebe Daniels. The Selected Letters of Dashiell Hammett 1921-1960 (edited by Richard Layman) were indeed "selected from nearly one thousand letters" yet only a mere four letters date - as this letter does -- from 1930, the year Hammett published THE MALTESE FALCON. Apart from two neat folds, the letter is in Fine, crisp condition.. Signed by Author.

        My Early Life

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1930. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good. This is Churchill's extremely popular autobiography, covering the years from his birth in 1874 to his first few years in Parliament. Here is the first edition, first printing, offered in very good+ condition. The plum colored boards of this edition - particularly the coarse cloth of the first state - are especially susceptible to fading, soiling, and wear. Moreover, the contents are susceptible to heavy spotting and the binding is often cocked. That's why so many first editions of this book have been torn apart and rebound. Finding a very good copy like this is increasingly challenging. First state of the first edition, is confirmed here by 11 Churchill titles listed on the half-title verso. The boards retain bright, unfaded color and show very little wear, apart from a smallish bump to the lower front corner. The spine is faded as usual, but not as badly as most copies; the spine retains decent plum color and the gilt remains brightly legible. The contents are bright and tight. Internal spotting is light and substantially confined to the prelims, with heavier spotting on the text block edges. There is an inked previous owner name on the ffep and a small bookshop sticker on the lower left corner of the rear pastedown. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A91.1.b., Woods/ICS A37(aa), Langworth p.131.

        The Talkies (First Edition)

      New York: Henry Holt, 1930. First Edition. First Edition. Near Fine in a very bright, Very Good plus dust jacket. One of the first books to be published on the subject of talking pictures, addressing the changes to the medium at a fairly technical level, though still aimed at the layman. Rather than the expected film stills one would normally see in such a title from this period, there are diagrams illustrating said changes, including the effect the new dimension brought to animated cartoons as well as photographed stories. A few tiny chips at the spine ends, else a splendid copy.

        Positive electron.Lancaster, PA and New York, NY: for the American Physical Society by the American Institute of Physics, 1933. First edition.

      A fine copy, with distinguished provenance (see below), of Carl Anderson's announcement of the discovery of the positron, the first antiparticle. Its existence had been predicted by Dirac three years earlier in his paper <i>Quantised Singularities in the Electromagnetic Field</i>. "The prediction and subsequent discovery of the positron rank among the great triumphs of modern physics". (Pais, <i>The Genius of Science</i>).<br/><br/> "Anderson received his Ph.D. in 1930 from the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, where he worked with physicist Robert Andrews Millikan. Having studied X-ray photoelectrons (electrons ejected from atoms by interaction with high-energy photons) since 1927, he began research in 1930 on gamma rays and cosmic rays. While studying cloud-chamber photographs of cosmic rays, Anderson found a number of tracks whose orientation suggested that they were caused by positively charged particles-but particles too small to be protons. In 1932 he announced that they were caused by positrons, positively charged particles with the same mass as electrons. The claim was controversial until verified the next year by British physicist Patrick M.S. Blackett and Italian Giuseppe Occhialini" (Britannica). <br/><br/> Anderson describes his discovery as follows: "On August 2, 1932, during the course of photographing cosmic-ray tracks produced in a vertical Wilson chamber (magnetic field of 15,000 gauss), designed in the summer of 1930 by Professor R. A. Millikan and the writer, the tracks shown in Fig. 1 were obtained, which seemed to be interpretable only on the basis of the existence in this case of a particle carrying a positive charge but having a mass of the same order of magnitude as that normally possessed by a free negative electron...It is concluded, therefore, that the magnitude of the charge of the positive electron, which we shall henceforth contract to positron, is very probably equal to that of a free negative electron which from symmetry considerations would naturally be called a negatron." <br/><br/> The next antiparticle physicists looked for was the antiproton. Much heavier than the positron, it would not be confirmed experimentally for another 22 years. <br/><br/> Anderson shared the Nobel Prize in Physics 1936 "for his discovery of the positron." <i>Provenance:</i> With the blind stamp of Ross Gunn (1897 - 1966) to the front wrapper and two first leaves. Gunn was an American physicist, a key player in the USA nuclear submarine program, and a principal in the Manhattan Project. The New York Times described Gunn as "one of the true fathers of the nuclear submarine program". For his contributions to the Manhattan Project Gunn received the Navy Distinguished Civilian Service Award on September 4, 1945. The National Academies Press said that he "was one of the most versatile physicists of the early and mid-twentieth century".. In: The Physical Review Vol. 43, No. 6, March 15, 1933, pp. 491-494, the entire issue offere here in the original printed wrappers. 4to (268 x 202 mm), pp. 387-503 [1:blank], some very light wear to capitals of spine strip - a very fine and unrestored copy

        CAKES AND ALE

      1930. Or The Skeleton in the Cupboard. London: William Heinemann, (1930). Original blue cloth, with dust jacket. First Edition of~perhaps his [Maugham&#39;s] best novel, a witty and delicious comedy of literary England in the early decades of the 20th century, told in the first person by a novelist, Ashenden. The pushing and self-advertising novelist Alroy Kear wants to get at the details of the early life of Edward Driffield, an eminent novelist whose biography Kear has been commissioned to write. Ashenden had known Driffield and his first wife Rosie, a barmaid; Rosie, the skeleton in the cupboard of Driffield&#39;s life, is Kear&#39;s stumbling block -- he is not honest enough to be given the facts that Ashenden gives the reader. Rosie is a wonderful character -- affectionate, amoral, and generous. The narrator is obviously Maugham but he denied what so many readers were quick to conclude: that Alroy Kear was founded on Hugh Walpole and Edward Driffield on Thomas Hardy. [CGEL]~This copy does have the "t" in "won&#39;t" on line 14 of p. 147, which is often regarded as the "later state"; however, as Toole Stott points out, this is merely a matter of type slippage during the print run (and the "t" could have dropped off during the run, or it could have been inserted during the run -- in either event, both "states" were then issued simultaneously to the public).~This is a fine copy, bright and without wear -- with light foxing on the page edges and on the endpapers where unprotected by the jacket flaps; the dust jacket is very good-plus -- with very minor soil and trifling wear at the corners, including one inch-long closed tear. Toole Stott A40a.

Spine rolled and toned, sloth a little dulled and toned along the edges, top corner bumped. An excellent copy in the slightly rubbed, dulled, and toned jacket. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Wendell from Dick. &#39;&#133;Why &#39;tis a gull, a fool, a rogue that now & then goes to the war, to grace himself at his return into London under the form of a soldier&#133;&#39; Shakespeare. &#39;&#133;I took out my old fowling-piece.&#39; Little Tich. [indecipherable location] 16/1/30". The Shakespeare quotation is spoken by Gower in act III of Henry V, and Little Tich was a popular English music hall star. Blaker&#39;s novel of the First World War is considered one of the finest war novels of the twentieth century. "How did the average, ordinary man of some position and substance, not young, untrained, fare in the War if he had the fortune to come through alive and unspoiled in health? Mr. Blaker cleverly answers the question in this, one of the longest and most detailed war novels. He also gives perhaps the finest picture yet painted of life in a field-artillery battery &#133; his attitude to the War itself is sane and just. This is one of the books which could not possibly have been written save upon the foundation of experience" (Falls).

        A Roving Commission

      New York: Charles Scribner&#39;s Sons, 1930. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Very good. This is Churchill&#39;s extremely popular autobiography, covering the years from his birth in 1874 to his first few years in Parliament. Published in England as My Early Life, this is one of the few Churchill first editions for which the U.S. edition bears a different title than the British. Jacketed copies are extremely scarce. Even decent unjacketed copies are unusual. The red-orange cloth binding proved highly susceptible to fading and soiling and the fragile dust jacket proved highly vulnerable to wear and severe fading of the orange color, particularly on the jacket spine. Offered here is an especially fine copy in a very good plus first printing dust jacket. The red-orange binding retains vivid, entirely unfaded color and bright gilt. Notably, there is absolutely no fading whatsoever to the spine. The coarse cloth binding is tight, square, and remarkably clean with virtually no wear or soiling, sharp corners, and bright gilt. The contents are as crisp and bright as any we have seen. Even the page edges, including the untrimmed fore edge, remain bright with no age-toning, soiling, or spotting. The Scribner&#39;s "A" on the copyright page confirms a first edition, first printing. The same previous owner name from the year of publication is inked three times within - on the front pastedown, the half-title, and the blank verso of the frontispiece. It is dated "December 25, 1930" (publication was in October 1930) in the half-title gift inscription. The dust jacket is unusually clean and unclipped, still bearing the original $3.50 price on the front flap. Most notable, the spine retains a bright orange panel with only a barely discernible hint of sunning and light scuffing. The only loss is a .625 x .5 inch triangular chip at the upper front hinge. The jacket is crisp apart from a .375 inch strip across the top edge where it was evidently once misfolded and wrinkled. A plausible explanation is that the book was carelessly shelved with the dust jacket protruding from the top of the book. Apart from the top edge wear, this is a stunning example of the first printing dust jacket. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.
