        IL SAGGIATORE, pubblicazione di critica e filosofia - 1930-1933 . TUTTO IL PUBBLICATO, Roma, Vari editori e tipoigrafi, 1930

      16 x 24,5, brossura, copertine iniziali grigie e poi a due colori, 60-80 pag. per ogni fascicolo. Questa rivista è ingiustamente assai poco conosciuta ma ha ospitato dibattiti, ricerche e scritti molto interessanti (assai preziose recensioni a romanzi italiani e stranieri ed inchieste delicate del tempo) ed ha dato voce ad una parte di quella che sarebbe diventata la cosidetta "fronda verso il regime" Il direttore iniziale è stato LUIGI DE CRECCHIO PARLADORE e facevano parte del comitato direttivo (e spesso autori molto autorevoli lungo la breve vita della rivista) Domenico Carella, Giorgio Granata, Nicola Perrotti, Attilio Riccio. Notevoli alcuni fascicoli : Gennaio 1933 (Conclusioni all'inchiesta sulla nuova generazione) Ottobre 1933 (contributo per una nuova cultura). IL SAGGIATORE è la rivista che ha più apertamente discusso ed accolto il "pragmatismo"come criterio di orientamento e di giudizio verso tendenze filosofiche e letterarie allora presenti in Italia. L'approccio iniziale era verso la filosofia, ma via via l'orientamento si spostò sulla letteratura, la critica letteraria e la politica.

Three volumes complete, 1930-1933 - Volume One (fourth impression, 1930), xxiii, [1], 231pp, [1]; Volume Two - xxxiv, 277pp, [1] and Volume Three - xvi, 247pp, [1].

Internally a previous owner's name to half-titles, some very minor browning, otherwise bright and clean. Volume one with seventy-nine photographic plates and one plan, volume two with eighty-eight photographic plates and volume three with eighty photographic plates. Volume one is a later reprint, volumes two and three are first editions, an attractive set, uncommon in DJ's. "Carter, Howard (1874-1939), artist and archaeologist ... In the summer of 1922 Carter persuaded Carnarvon to allow him to conduct one more campaign in the valley. Starting work earlier than usual Howard Carter opened up the stairway to the tomb of Tutankhamun on 4 November 1922. Carnarvon hurried to Luxor and the tomb was entered on 26 November. The discovery astounded the world: a royal tomb, mostly undisturbed, full of spectacular objects. Carter recruited a team of expert assistants to help him in the clearance of the tomb, and the conservation and recording of its remarkable contents. On 16 February 1923 the blocking to the burial chamber was removed, to reveal the unplundered body and funerary equipment of the dead king. Unhappily, the death of Lord Carnarvon on 5 April seriously affected the subsequent progress of Carter's work. In spite of considerable and repeated bureaucratic interference, not easily managed by the short-tempered excavator, work on the clearance of the tomb proceeded slowly, but was not completed until 1932. Carter handled the technical processes of clearance, conservation, and recording with exemplary skill and care. A popular account of the work was published in three volumes, The Tomb of Tut.ankh.Amen (1923-33), the first of which was substantially written by his principal assistant, Arthur C. Mace" (ODNB). First Edition. Hardback. Very Good/Good. Illus. by Burton, Harry. 8vo.

        Flying Feet

      1930. Drypoint. Signed in ink. Image measures 6 x 16". This charming drypoint print shows a polo game in action, with four men on their horses chasing after the ball that is rolling toward the left side of the page. The player at the far left appears about to hit the ball with his mallet, while the other players battle to catch up. In the background, a row of spectators stands on the shady sideline. The beautiful effect of the drypoint technique is in full evidence here, particularly in the grassy field and the silky coats of the horses. The print is in excellent condition with full margins and no chips or tears. Paul Desmond Brown (1893-1958) is one of the most well-respected illustrators and artists of equestrian sports. An avid fan of polo, hunting, and horse racing, he turned his passion into a career, publishing over 30 books and illustrating countless other books and periodicals. His most prized skill was his ability to depict horses in motion, enabling him to faithfully record the action of the game. This beautiful print exemplifies the talent for which Brown was famous.

        Japan and Jazz. Sketches and Essays on Japanese City Life.

      Shiba, Tokyo: The Taiheiyosha Press, 1930 - Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles and pictorial design across spine and boards in black, patterned endpapers. Contemporary ownership signature to front blank and title page. Spine rolled and tanned, cloth lightly rubbed and dulled with some faded areas and small spots, occasional light spotting to contents. Illustrations within the text. First edition, first impression of this rare collection of essays on Japan's uneasy embrace of modernism during the 1920s and 30s. The author, Setsuo Uenoda, was a sort of ambassador between the west and east, a proponent of the new styles in art and music which he hoped to incorporate with the best of Japanese tradition. He wrote for the English language periodical The Japan Advertiser, where these essays first appeared, and may have had contact with Ezra Pound. The essays collected here cover topics such as the nightlife of the Ginza district; cultural attitudes of the young, particularly the development of flapper culture; the Shibui Konomi aestheticism; jazz in Japan and the hits being produced by Japan's version of Tin Pan Alley; Japanese popular songs; Christmas in Japan, the art of bonsai; the Samisen musical revival, the modernisation of the Geisha, and superstitions of old Japan. An attractive copy of an uncommon and fascinating collection.

        Vol. 18 of 29 Atlases of Insurance Maps for Brooklyn.Coney Island and Brighton Beach

      Sanborn Map Company, New York 1930 - This volume includes Sheepshead Bay, Shore Parkway, Gravesend Bay, Beach Line, the Boardwalk and the Cyclone. The Sanborn map collection consists of a uniform series of large scale maps, dating from 1867 to the present depicting the commercial, industrial, and residential sections of some twelve thousand cities and towns in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The maps were designed to assist fire insurance agents in determining the degree of hazard associated with a particular property and therefore show the size, shape and construction of dwellings, commercial buildings, and factories as well as fire walls locations of windows and doors, sprinkler systems, and types of roofs. The maps also indicate widths and names of streets, property boundaries, building use, and house and block numbers. They show locations of water mains, giving their dimensions, and of fire alarm boxes and hydrants. Sanborn maps are an unrivaled source of information about the structure and use of buildings in American Cities. The collection includes some fifty thousand editions of fire insurance maps comprising an estimated seven hundred thousand individual sheets. The Library of Congress holdings represent the largest extant collection of maps produced by the Sanborn Map Company. The majority of the maps were acquired by the Library through copyright deposit, but the collection was substantially enriched in 1967 when the Bureau of the Census transferred to the Library of Congress a complete set. The 1,899 loose-leaf binders were particularly noteworthy because they included later editions than those previously acquired by the Library. The Bureau of the Census set of maps had been regularly updated by printed, paste-on corrections supplied by the Sanborn Map Company, whereas the Library of Congress copies were retained in the form in which they were copyrighted. Atlas. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Massive elephant folio. Decorative calligraphic titles, indices, and key maps. Contains a set of 86 detailed maps of southern Brooklyn along with changes recorded on paste-on correction slips through 1974. Quarter leather binding with gilt title on front and spine. Minor wear to spine of original protective canvas cover. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Vol. 10 of 29 Atlases of Insurance Maps for Queens. Jackson Heights & East Elmhurst

      Sanborn Map Company, New York 1930 - This volume includes the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway expansion which connected to Grand Central Parkway, the La Guardia Airport prior to runway extension, and original avenue names (Schurz, Patterson, Fillmore etc.). The Sanborn map collection consists of a uniform series of large scale maps, dating from 1867 to the present depicting the commercial, industrial, and residential sections of some twelve thousand cities and towns in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The maps were designed to assist fire insurance agents in determining the degree of hazard associated with a particular property and therefore show the size, shape and construction of dwellings, commercial buildings, and factories as well as fire walls locations of windows and doors, sprinkler systems, and types of roofs. The maps also indicate widths and names of streets, property boundaries, building use, and house and block numbers. They show locations of water mains, giving their dimensions, and of fire alarm boxes and hydrants. Sanborn maps are an unrivaled source of information about the structure and use of buildings in American Cities. The collection includes some fifty thousand editions of fire insurance maps comprising an estimated seven hundred thousand individual sheets. The Library of Congress holdings represent the largest extant collection of maps produced by the Sanborn Map Company. The majority of the maps were acquired by the Library through copyright deposit, but the collection was substantially enriched in 1967 when the Bureau of the Census transferred to the Library of Congress a complete set.

        Rhododendron Pie

      New York: D. Appleton & Co., 1930. First Edition, First printing. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Good. First Edition, First printing in very scarce original dustjacket. Very clean deep pink cloth boards with unchipped gold lettering and small decoration on cover and spine. No bumping, fraying or wear. Binding is tight & square, no cracking. Pages are clean; clean endpapers with no names, writing or marks. 359 pgs. (1) on last page indicating Appleton First Edition. This is British author Margery Sharp's first book; a book which is extremely scarce, in and of itself, particularly in excellent condition; with a dustjacket, it is virtually unobtainable. This original dustjacket is clean and bright, not price clipped, but does have a piece missing at top of spine cutting into title area (2-3/4" inch max. depth), additional small edge chips, closed tear at base of rear panel extending approx. 2-1/2" upward. Enclosed in new archival quality mylar cover. From rear flap (Comment from the English Press): "Rhododendron Pie is something more than an amusing and good-natured gibe at literary and artistic snobbery, for all the Laventie family--including the mother, who comes in with a great burst of rhetoric on behalf of the bank clerk at the finish--and the various minor characters are far more than argumentative counters in the attack or defence of aestheticism. They have all authentic lives of their own, and Miss Sharp is particularly successful in catching the accent of those inhabitants of the modern world who carry a magnificent undergraduate irresponsibility into the affairs of everyday life." - The London Times Literary Supplement "We are very grateful for a writer who can understand and see through the pretentiousness of the fastidious dillettanti, and restore the credit of the ordinary inarticulate professional families who take real pleasure in Kipling, Wallace, foot-ball, and the films. Miss Sharp is already a novelist of unusual perception and ripe sympathies. Her development will be worth watching" - The Daily Telegraph. 8vo. Fiction.
