The Dustjacket is in a clear protective sleeve. It is Very Good Minus condition, a little yellowed with age, some creasing and a few small tears to the edges, and minor loss to the spine ends and one of the corners. It has been price-clipped. There is a "Recommended by the Book Society" label on the front, which blends in well with the design. The spine of the dustjacket indicates "Second Impression" (also October 1930), whilst the book itself is 3rd impression. The blue cloth binding is in Very Good shape with minor bumping to corners and spine ends. The cloth has faded a little at the extremities and spine, and there are one or two marks on the rear board. The pages are in Very Good Plus condition, very clean, slightly yellowing with age, with light foxing to the prelims. There is a small, neat contemporary gift inscription to the front free end paper. A previous owner has made a couple of small notations in pencil. All of the illustrations called for (including a frontispiece sketch by Waugh himself, two maps, and various photos) are present.

        Distribution of Luminosity in Elliptical Nebulae

      Washington, DC: Carnegie Institution, reprinted from the Astrophysical Journal, Vol. LXXI,, 1930. Washington, DC: Carnegie Institution, reprinted from the Astrophysical Journal, Vol. LXXI,, 1930. Contributions from the Mount Wilson Observatory, No. 398. Octavo. Original light greenish-blue wrappers printed in black. 1 plates, illustrations and diagrams throughout the text. Punctures to lower wrappers also affecting second half of the text leaves, wrappers slightly toned. A very good copy. First separate edition. This article builds on Hubble's work at Mt. Wilson in 1923 and 24, in which he discovered that the Milky Way was not, as previously believed, the extent of the universe, but just one galaxy among many. Hubble had shown that many "nebulae" were in fact galaxies filled with stars, but at the time this paper was published it was not clear whether the elliptical variety were true nebulae (clouds of gas and dust), or larger galaxies. Here he discusses the use of luminosity measurements in classifying and understanding these elliptical nebulae, but refrains from taking sides in the debate.

        4 autograph letters and 2 (1 autogr. and 1 typed) postcards, all signed.

      Neuilly-sur-Seine and n. p., 1930 to 1976.. Large 4to and 8vo. Altogether 6 pp. on 6 ff. Together with 2 typed letters by Labisse (carbon copies) and 2 letters of response.. To the Belgian author, filmmaker and documentarist Henri Storck. The first letter dates from the beginning of their friendship; in it, Labisse argues vehemently against becoming involved in politics: "Occupons nous essentiellement d'art et de litterature. Bougre de nom de Dieu!, nous ne sommes bon qu'a cela. C'est deja quelque chose, il y a tant qui y sont etrangers. Je ne condescendrai jamais a jeter le plus infime regard sur les [illegible] de la societe, laissons les laver leur linge sale en famille ; que m'importe les regiments, ils se valent tous, ils sont tous aussi mauvais. Henri, nous ne pouvons nous occuper de tout. Laissons les politiciens s'arracher les yeux pour avoir le pouvoir [ ]" (17. V. 1930). - In one letter, Labisse asks his friend to take pictures of the paintings in his possession for an illustrated catalogue of his work: "j'aimerais que tu me fasse parvenir 2 photographies de chaque tableau de moi que tu possedes. 'Le bapteme de l'air'. 'Le demythifieur'. Et si possible celles du portrait que j'ai fait de ta soeur Janot [ ]" (18. X. 1976). - One month later, he has obviously gotten some of the pictures as well as some other documents, reminding him of their youth: "Merci pour les documents, souvenir de notre puberte. Tu dois en avoir une ou deux avec James Ensor sur la plage - pendant le tournage d'un de tes films - mais je ne me souviens plus [ ] du film. Au sujet des negatifs noirs et blancs, les tableaux photographies pour [illegible], je te remercie, cela sera tres utile. Voila ceux qui me manquent : Document I: Bonjour Marie; [ ] L'infallibilite; [ ] Decouverte de l'amerique [ ]; Document II: Le combat singulier; [ ]. Fais les moi parvenir quand tu pourras [ ]" (22. XI. 1976). - In 1977, on the occasion of Stock's 70th birthday, Labisse honors his fried by a long letter (or was it a speech?) about the latter's accomplishments: "Nous nous sommes connus en 1926. Tu etais alors un garcon un peu austere et un tantinet dogmatique. Malgre nos caracteres assez differents il s'etablit tres vite entre nous une amitie complice, et, avec l'impetuosite de la jeunesse nous foncames allegrement dans le ventre mou des Arts. Ostende, a cette epoque, etait une ville extraordinaire [ ] En 1927, aventure mirobolante Tu inventes le CLUB DU CINEMA d'OSTENDE, un des premiers du genre. J'en suis nomme pompeusement le Secretaire General. [ ] Et puis, en 1929, ce fut LA MORT DE VENUS, ton premier court metrage de fiction, tourne sur la plage avec une ravissante autrichienne, un colonel en retraite et moi-meme. Helas, il ne reste que quelques rarissimes photographies de cette oeuvre historique malheureusement perdue. Je cesserai maintenant d'egrener ces quelques souvenirs tres anciens. Les nombreux films que tu as realises depuis sont tous ici 'en chair et en os' illustrant magnifiquement ton soixante dixieme anniversaire et tes cinquante ans de cinema. [ ]" (7. V. 1977). - James Ensor (1860-1949) was a Belgian painter and printmaker.

It seems that this was a luxurious line of wallpapers, since the designs are often very artistically composed. This is underlined by the words "Marke Excellenz" on the covers.

      Um 1930.. 30 x 22 cm. 15 Tafeln mit kolorierten Bleistiftzeichnungen und handgeschriebenem Text.. Anonym erschienenes Mappenwerk des wohl berühmtesten tschechischen Eroticons. Die derb gereimte Ballade ist die Geschichte des Ritters Smil, der Jungfrau ist und sich am Loch im Faß in seinem Zimmer vergnügt, bis ihm eine Burgmagd zeigt, wie man's richtig macht. Sie ist mit Ritter Smil viel beschäftigt und nicht in ihrem Zimmer, als ihr Exliebhaber, ein Knappe, zu ihr kommt. Nur ihre Oma ist da, der Knappe verwechselt in der Nacht die Oma mit seiner jungen Exgeliebten und ist in der Früh darüber zerknirscht. Die Oma dagegen genoss diese Nacht sehr. Am Schluss heiratet Ritter Smil die glücklicher Magd und das Volk feiert ihn aufgrund seiner Liebeskünste. Der handgeschriebene Text wurde kongenial und pornografisch von dem tschechischen Künstler Jarka Stika illustriert, der hier natürlich anonym blieb. Die Tafeln gedunkelt mit schwachen Randläsuren. Teils stärker fingerfleckig.

        THE RUBAIYAT OF OMAR KHAYYAM

      Harrap , 1930. Harrap , 1930. First edition with these Pogany illustrations. Deluxe edition, number 582 of 750 copies signed by the artist.

A very good copy indeed, spine a little faded. 12 beautiful tipped in colour plates, small etchings and vignettes to text pages. This edition has one extra etching, signed by Pogany. Commenting on the new illustrations for this edition Pogany said, "My last Omar pictures ... are quite different from the Omar Khayyam I did in London years ago. But I think they are just as true to the Oriental spirit. I have Westernized and modernized Omar more, but perhaps I have interpreted him more nearly to present day readers."

Chemise and new matching slipcase. "Schmied bound only books of his own creation, choosing above all the books of his great years.The subjects of his designs come from the books themselves" Ray, The Art Deco Book in France, pp. 101-102. "In the introductory note.Théo Schmied points out the natural happiness of the interconnection between his father's cultural tendencies and art of the book and the world of the Near East as it is filtered by the 'inspired' Mardrus translations.throwing light on the the two fundamental aesthetic coordinates we need in order to understand how the details are made subordinate by the elegant decorative unity expressed by the plates, that is, the purity of the Egyptian graphic art and the will of the Italian primitives. The layout shows either a text harmoniously arranged in respect of double and single plates of various size, or a text framed by rules forming a variety of geometrical patterns and decorated by bout de lignes in sienna. The illustrations mainly show subdued and delicate pastel colours" - Nasti. Light marginal foxing, but in excellent condition, in leather edged cloth slipcase. One of 155 copies printed on Madagascar paper (plus 10 for collaborators, and 7 on japon). Nasti B15; Ritchie 31. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE TALE OF LITTLE PIG ROBINSON with THE LAVENDER GARDEN by Norah Edmondson

      Warne & Co. Ltd , 1930. Warne & Co. Ltd , 1930. First edition. 8vo. Blue cloth with gilt lettering on the upper cover, and titles and illustration in brown. Printed dustwrapper with pictorial onlay. Both book and wrapper are in very good condition indeed with just slight toning to the spine and one or two spots of foxing to the endpapers. This copy is inscribed by the author, "For Norah Edmondson, from Beatrix Potter, Christmas 1930". Illustrations in colour and line by the author. Norah Edmondson was the author of a book called The Lavender Garden for which Beatrix Potter wrote the introduction. Having worked together in 1929, when this book was published, the following year Beatrix Potter gave this copy of her new book to her friend and fellow writer. "Although The Tale Of Little Pig Robinson was the last of Beatrix Potter's stories to be published in the Peter Rabbit series, it was one of the first she ever wrote. The earliest association with the story is found in a letter written to her father from Ilfracombe in 1883 when she was seventeen years of age;" (Linder p.256). Writing shortly before her death Potter noted that she "found an old draft of Pig Robinson's first chapters dated 1893". Also included is a 1929 early issue of Edmondson's book in dustwrapper.
