        Dr. Serge A. Korff: Collected Papers. A personal archive in 8 bound volumes (plus 2 accompanying volumes)

      n.p, n.d.. Hard Cover. Fine/No Jacket. Signed by Author. 4to. 8 slim quarto volumes, ranging in size from approximately 6 3/4 x 9 3/4 to 11 x 11 1/4. Each is bound in red cloth, with titles gilt-lettered direct on the spine. The titling consists of a general title (“Collected Papers”); followed by (in most cases) a separate volume title ("Spectroscopy," "Cosmic Rays," etc.); “S.A. Korff;” and finally a volume number (I, II, 3, 4, 5, 6, VII, and VIII [sic]). The volumes contain Dr. Korff’s personal copies of his collected papers (reprints, preprints, offprints, and pamphlets, as well as photocopies of other works and speeches, some unpublished). Each volume is preambled by a typed table of contents listing the papers contained within in proper bibliographic format (article title, author(s), title of publishing journal, page numbers, date, etc.). The papers are arranged chronologically. The separately-published items (i.e., booklets, pamphlets) have been bound in entire, complete with their original printed paper or cardstock wrappers. Although most of the papers deal with the subjects of cosmic rays, spectroscopy, radiation, aeronautics and atmosphere, astrophysics, and the other disciplines for which Dr. Korff was best known, two are articles on stamps and stamp collecting which the doctor wrote for philatelic journals. The official NYU archive contains much but by no means all of this material. (Further details are available upon request.) The two additional volumes which here accompany Dr. Korff’s papers are two books which belonged to him (with his bookplate and ownership signature), bound in uniform red morocco and marbled boards, with gilt titles, raised bands, and speckled edges: CONTRIBUTIONS FROM THE MOUNT WILSON OBSERVATORY; Volumes 19 (Numbers 420-446, 1930-'31) and 20 (447-476, 1931-1933); these dates correspond to the years Dr. Korff was a research assistant at the Observatory.

        Cakes and Ale [Inscribed Association Copy]

      London: Heinemann. (1930). One of Maugham's major novels, a comedy about hypocrisy and literary fame, featuring a writer based on Thomas Hardy and his good-natured wife Rosie. In a 1958 interview, Maugham said it was his favorite of all his novels. A significant association copy, inscribed by the author to his longtime companion and later his adopted son: "For Alan Searle from his friend W. Somerset Maugham/ Oct 6. 1930." Maugham had met Searle in 1928, when Maugham was 54 and Searle was 26; Maugham's partner at the time was Gerald Haxton, and he reportedly alternated between Searle and Haxton until Haxton died in 1944, at which time he settled, at least partially, for Searle. Their relationship continued for the rest of Maugham's life. In 1962, Maugham disowned his biological daughter and adopted Searle and made him his heir. The change in his will was overturned by the courts, but after Maugham died Searle inherited a sum of money, the contents of Maugham's estate, his manuscripts, and the income from his copyrights for the next 30 years. Foxing to edges of text block, else near fine in a very good dust jacket with only modest rubbing to folds, spotting and shelf wear. . First Edition. Hardcover.

        Rural Rides

      London: Peter Davies,, 1930. in the southern, western and eastern counties of England, together with Tours in Scotland and in the Northern and Midland Counties of England, and Letters from Ireland by William Cobbett. The whole, including many rides and tours never before reprinted, edited with an introduction, notes, a biographical record of upwards of nine hundred persons mentioned, an index of places, and a bibliographical note by G. D. H. and Margaret Cole. 2 volumes (of 3), octavo. Original tan cloth-backed marbled boards, titles to spine gilt on a black ground, map endpapers. With numerous vignettes by John Nash, and a map of Cobbett's Country (see endpapers) by A. E. Taylor. Spines tanned with a few small ink stains, sides and corners lightly rubbed, spotting to edges and to early and late leaves. A very good set. First and sole edition thus (published a century after Cobbett's rides were first published in book form in 1830, after serialisation through the 1820s); from a limited edition of 1000 numbered sets, of which this is marked "Reserved for the Publisher". This set (missing the third volume), is from the library of Leonard Woolf, with his bookplates to both volumes dated 1930 by hand. Considering the "reserved" limitation status, is very likely that the volume was given to Woolf by Peter Davies himself; Woolf and Davies, as fellow publishers, would have been aware of one another, though it should also be noted that a connection exists through the Bloomsbury artist John Nash, who did the illustrations for this book. Laid in to the first volume is a slip signed by Leonard Woolf's literary executor M. T. Parsons of Kingston, Sussex, attesting that the book was in the library of Leonard Woolf until his death, at which point it passed to him and had remained in his possession until 1994, when the slip is dated.

The first major monograph on Brett Weston, written and designed by his long time friend Merle Armitage.

At the end of his introduction, Armitage reprints a review he wrote of a Brett Weston exhibition held Jake Zeitlin's Los Angeles bookstore in 1930. In a fitting tribute to the photographer, this review prefaces a suite of beautiful reproductions from photographs produced by Weston after twenty-six years of work.

        THE PLEASURES OF POETRY A CRITICAL ANTHOLOGY ... FIRST SERIES MILTON AND THE AUGUSTAN AGE [with:] ... SECOND SERIES THE ROMANTIC REVIVAL

      London: Duckworth, 1930 & 1931.. Two volumes. Gilt lettered orange cloth. Some foxing at edges, top edges dust marked, but a good set, without dust jackets. First editions (each one of 2000 copies printed). From the library of Siegfried Sassoon: the second volume is inscribed "For Siegfried Sassoon from Edith Sitwell," and the first has an author's compliments slip laid in. Both bear the posthumous Sassoon library dispersal label on the front pastedowns. Sassoon has annotated two pages in the first volume, one being a comment exuding his characteristic sarcasm, and pasted a clipped design from another work on the rear pastedown. Sassoon and Edith Sitwell connected as early as 1917, when through Robert Ross, she wrote to him at Craiglockhart to commend him on his anti-war statement. There ensued a long acquaintance, made difficult by Sassoon's animosity toward Osbert. In 1930, she wrote him in the wake of a lapse in their friendship: "...you were one of my most intimate friends, and I have missed you more than I can say...." The following year she dedicated JANE BARSTON, one of her poems in the original Ariel Poems series, to him. FIFOOT EB16.

        THE WORKS OF GEORGE BERNARD SHAW: 33 volumes, EACH Volume Inscribed to Shaw's Favorite Actress Lillah McCarthy

      London: Constable & Company Limited, [1930-1938]. First Edition. cloth. Near Fine in Very Good dustwrappers. Sensational set. Laurence A198a. The Best Edition of Shaw's Works, copy #740 of 1025 copies complete in 33 volumes in the original dustwrappers collecting his writings from his first novel-- IMMATURITY--to his famous plays--PYGMALION, MAJOR BARBARA, etc.--through and beyond his winning of the Nobel Prize in 1925. EACH of the 33 volumes is INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author to actress Lillah McCarthy. The first volume, as are most of the others, is INSCRIBED "This one is Lillah's/G. Bernard Shaw." Volume 10, MAN AND SUPERMAN, is INSCRIBED: "This volume is very specially/dedicated to the/Creatrix/of/Ann Whitefield, who will/always be my/Ann Whitefield/Lillah McCarthy/G. Bernard Shaw 12th Dec. 1931." McCarthy became the leading lady in 1905 at The Court Theatre, managed by Granville Barker, her future husband, and financed by Shaw. Her first role was as Nora in Shaw's JOHN BULL'S OTHER ISLAND. She then caused a sensation as Ann Whitefield in his masterpiece MAN AND SUPERMAN, earning Shaw's respect for her talents so much so that he tailored the part of Jennifer in THE DOCTOR'S DILEMMA especially for her. When McCarthy married Barker, who played the male lead opposite her in several of Shaw's plays, Shaw was upset as he felt they were not a good pair. Though the couple successfully produced a number of other Shaw plays in the following years, Shaw was proven correct when Barker left her for another woman. McCarthy later married Sir Frederick Keeble, and the final volume of this set is INSCRIBED by Shaw "to Lady Keeble (Lillah).

        A collection of 84 different bookplates designed by Armenian artist, Gourguen Khounountz

      [Armenia & Sweden, 1930 - 1960?]. (ARMENIAN BOOKPLATE DESIGN) Many of the bookplates have text in Cyrillic though a few are printed in. Roman script. In addition to these 84 loose bookplates, there are 50 loose duplicates, and three small scrapbooks (2 oblong octavo volumes measuring 6-1/4 inches high by 9-1/4 inches wide, and one duodecimo volume measuring 4-1/2 inches high by 4 inches wide) into which are mounted even more copies of these bookplates. Generally in very good condition . A UNIQUE AND BEAUTIFUL COLLECTION OF BOOKPLATES FORMED BY THE ARTIST HIMSELF. Born in Choucha [Shusha], Gourguen Khounountz[1892-1976] fought in World War I. As a college student, he was made an officer in the Russian army. His family recounts his extraordinary bravery and devotion to his men while fighting on the Turkish front. "He was like Christ in flesh; cared for his young subordinates as if they were family. He led them on the attack, sword raised high, up front. He survived, but with a total paralysis of his right side ... . Never a word of complaint-on the contrary, cheerful, happy to have survived Hell on Earth." Gourguen Khounountz emigrated to Sweden after his injury where he became a successful self-taught artist. Khounountz and his artistic siblings were profiled in the magazine "Soviet Armenia" in May 1985 Khounoutz's unusual bookplates display a wide variety of styles and influences over several decades, frequently combining elements of traditional Russian iconic woodblock art, with Art Deco, "modernist" design, and frequent touches of the purely mythical and fantastic. They include a bookplate for Hagelin with a vignette depicting a wizard struck by a beam of light from a fiery altar above the image of a Sphinx and the Star of David. Others with Roman script include a beautifully delicate windswept plain for "Hildur och Albert Koersner"; a bookplate for the "National Musei Bibliotek"; others are for "Alexandre Petrokovsky", "Brigit Herzog"; "Axel Lagrelius"; "Carl E. Ekman"; 'Johannischus Bibliotek". A small bookplate for Sven Froberg delicately depicts a tree lined stream. Several images are bold and encompass Gothic metaphysical scenes while others are more fantastical and delicate. Some plates are of a simple classic design with tasteful typography, and yet others depict buildings or gentle pastoral scenes. A few of the plates are annotated in pencil on the verso, usually in Cyrillic; some are dated. A beautiful color plate depicting houses behind stone fortifications, rising upon a steep hill as if stacked one on the other, is annotated in French on the recto "La Ville ou je suis ne" ("the town where I was born"). A goodly number of the bookplates are for Armenian clients, as well as the predominantly Russian, Swedish, and occasional French owners

A very good plus copy with some light normal wear and a small crease to corner of rear cover, contents excellent. Glassine jacket present in good-only condition with some chips and a small mark on front panel. Carl Einstein was regarded as one of the first critics to appreciate the development of Cubism, as well as for his work on African art and influence on the European avant-garde, Einstein was a friend and colleague of such figures as George Grosz, Georges Braque, Pablo Picasso and Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler. His work combined many strands of both political and aesthetic discourse into his writings, addressing both the developing aesthetic of modern art and the political situation in Europe. Einstein's involvement in social and political life was characterized by communist sympathies and anarchist views. A target of the German right wing during the interwar Weimar period, Einstein left Germany for France in 1928, a half-decade ahead of the rise of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party, later taking part in the Spanish Civil War on the side of the anti-Francisco Franco anarcho-syndicalists during the 1930s. A scarce title that rarely surfaces at auction. . Very Good. 1930. First Edition.

        BULL-DOG DRUMMOND (Inscribed By the Film's Star, RONALD COLMAN)

      New York: Grosset & Dunlap, 1930. McNeile, Cyril. BULL-DOG DRUMMOND. NY: Grosset & Dunlap, (1929). First Photoplay Edition published in tandem with the 1929 Samuel Goldman film adaptation. NEAR FINE copy (one corner bumped, trifle wear) with 4 stills, including frontispiece, from the movie starring Ronald Colman as Bulldog Drummond, bored ex-military man turned detective. In its very scarce ORIGINAL DUST JACKET (tiny bit of chipping to the spine ends, a little soil, a little edge-wear, a touch of fade). INSCRIBED in ink on the front free endpaper to a collector (undated, but most likely in the early 1950s) BY RONALD COLMAN. Bulldog Drummond was not only Ronald Colman's first "talkie" but it was also the movie that allowed audiences to hear his extremely appealing voice and manner of speaking, launching his career as one of the biggest movie stars of the golden age of cinema. Ronald Colman (1891-1958) was nominated for an Oscar for his role in this film, one of four Oscar nominations he received (with one win in 1947 for A Double Life). He starred in such classics as Lost Horizon, Random Harvest, A Tale Of Two Cities, Beau Geste, Under Two Flags, Raffles, Prisoner of Zenda, the list is long and impressive as he was a remarkable talent. Film Source books inscribed by the stars of the film adaptation are of the utmost desirability and rarity. . Signed. Near Fine/Very Good.

An excellent copy in the jacket that is a little rubbed, creased, and dulled along the edges, with a few small chips and toned spine panel. First English edition, first impression. The Castle will never attain the fame of its sister The Trial, but in literary terms it is more than a match.

        A Modern Utopia

      London, Edinburgh, Dublin and Ny: Thomas Nelson & Sons [circa 1930], reprint. (Hardcover) 378 + [2 pages ads]. Very good. 16mo. Blue cloth with stamped darker blue decoration on front cover. Gilt lettering and decoration on spine. Light wear to ends of spine and corners. Light blue decoration on endpapers. Light discolouration to endpapers and some edges of pages. B / W frontis portrait of Wells. Note from previous owner as to Well's death in ink on front free endpaper. Small closed tear to top corner of half title. Signed and inscribed by wells on half title with three markings by him in the text, two with small drawings. Inscription in blue ink and beautiful script on title page reads "The Advanced Wellsite. Book the first. To MRS Aria, H. G. Wells. Three pages also contain small notes by Wells. On page 5 he has written "two since" in regard to the comment in the text that this is with all probability the last text in a series of writings. On page 7 he has underlined the text in the book that reads "The last four words will not attract the butterfly reader, I know" Next to the text he has drawn a small figure and written "this is MRS Aria". On page 285 where the text discusses a particular kind of woman he has also drawn a figure and written the same thing. This suggests that perhaps Mrs. Aria, a literary figure in Wells's time, in question is alluded to within the text specifically. MRS Eliza Davis Aria was a well known gossip columnist, fashion writer, theatre critic, and society hostess. H. G. Wells visited MRS Aria frequently though he was no doubt more intellectual than her (probably why he drew a cartoon of her next to the words 'butterfly reader'). Also included is a copy of one of MRS Aria's books "My Sentimental Self" (1922) an autobiography with several illustrated plates. In the book she discusses her friendship with Wells and even includes a portrait of him as one of the plates. MRS Aria was also a longtime misstress of celebrated actor Sir Henry Irving and sister to Julia Frankau (pseudonym Frank Danby). MRS Aria died in 1931 making this possibly one of the last autographed books she got off of Wells. (It is suggested that in Pamela Frankenau's Memoir 'I Find Four People' 1935, that MRS Aria was in the habit of acquiring signed editions from Wells with a view to sell them) Signed and inscribed by H. G. Wells..

        Original Watercolour to Illustrate Charles Dickens's Nicholas Nickleby. Signed by Charles Brock

      c.1930., 1930. The framed vertical watercolour represents the scene called 'Nicholas Demands a Hearing' where Nicholas, in the presence of Madeline, is confronting her father, the invalid Mr Bray. Published in a slightly different angle in the George Harrap publication of 1831 of The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby, page 596 [copy provided] where the caption reads: 'My daughter, Miss Madeline Bray, condescends to employ herself no longer in such labours as these'. In this original painting the faces of all three characters are visible, Madeline to the left, Nicholas to the right holding the 'orders', and Mr Bray in centre, sat in an armchair holding a cane, feet on a stool. The actual picture measures 12 x 8 inches in the mount. The total size of the frame is 20 x 16 inches. The artist's signature is on the lower left hand side. The colours are vivid, the lines sharp and fine. A superb original watercolour, bright and atmospheric. VAT will be applied to this item.

        Good Medicine: The Illustrated Letters of Charles M. Russell. (with a signed introduction by Will Rogers and a signed sketch by Edward Borein)

      Garden City, New York.: Doubleday, Doran & Company.. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1930. First Edition. Hardcover. 4to - 30.5 x 23 cm.; xii - pages 13 to 162. A coarse-weave light olive green cloth with gilt spine letting on red panels, gilded steer head motif on a red panel centered on the front board and ruled gilt lines on both front and back boards so as to resemble a half bound binding. This is the first trade edition after the printing of 134 De Luxe copies. Full colour pictorial end papers both front and back. This volume was the personal copy of the silent screen star Irene Rich and comes from the estate of Francis Rich, her daughter. Signed by Will Rogers on the bottom of page 16 at the end of his four page introduction: "Irene says this is for you David. Remember when they throwed me out of the Bohemian Grove? Charley could have wrote a good letter about that. Will Rogers". A full page pen and ink sketch, signed by Edward Borein, of a mounted rider overlooking the edge of a bluff with three trees in the background is on the half title page. This sketch is untitled other than the serendipitous title that "Good Medicine" gives to it. Some mild offsetting from this sketch to the facing page, the verso of the front free end paper. With regards the signature, there is a smearing of the dot on the "i" and the vertical stroke of the "n" as though the page was brushed accidently while the ink was still wet. The spine is faded (sunned) to a straw yellow colour. Housed in a simple board slip case that is partially split along the top edges. All in all, a handsome book with fascinating inscriptions and associations.; Signed by One Author .
