        Hærværk.

      Gyldendalske Boghandel/Nordisk Forlag, København 1930. 1. udgave. 442 sider. Indbundet ubeskåret og med orig. omslag og rygstribe i et privat halvbind af sort gedeskind med gult mønstret sidepapir og skjulte hjørner. Topsnittet dekoret som boblende øl(!). I en forrette kassette overtrukket med fint sidepapir. Bindet usigneret, men udført af Jørgen Frank.. Førsteudgaven af et af det 20. århundredes danske hovedværker.** Med pragtfuld dedikation fra Tom Kristensen til forfatterkollegaen Otto Rung: 'Kære Otto Rung - En Synd eller en Daad? Hvad ved jeg. Deres hengivne Tom Kristensen [fuld signatur]'. Eftertiden har besvaret spørgsmålet og gjort bogen til én af det 20. århundredes vigtigste danske romaner. Otto Rung var generationen ældre end Tom Kristensen og skrev også københavnerbøger, der indeholder et broget persongalleri og som tydeligt er inspireret af Nietzsche. I dag er han mest kendt for sin vellykkede erindringsbog 'Fra min Klunketid', der viser hvordan borgerskabet skjuler sig i hjemmets hygge mens fin-de-siecle-stemningen raser udenfor

        Sezione di Spilimbergo Scuola Corale

      Opera Nazionale Dopolavoro (Spilimbergo, Italy: Opera Nazionale Dopolavoro, c. 1930s). Quarto. (30)ff. scrapbook belonging to a member of the Spilimbergo Choral School, and containing eight hand-tinted photographs, a roster of members, mimeographed sheets with lyrics to songs and a guide to a folk dance, and hand-written sheet music. One photograph shows the entire group in folkloric attire. The other photographs show couples dancing; most demonstrate specific steps to the furlana, a courtship folk dance. The choral roster in the front of the book lists the name of each member, his or her choral part and occupation. The Spilimbergo Scuola Corale was part of the Opera Nazionale Dopolavoro (OND), which was formed by Italian dictator Benito Mussolini in cooperation with fascist trade unions in 1925. The OND provided recreational and cultural activities for industrial workers and was intended to compete with Socialist cultural organizations. The OND’s activities were popular among workers, but it was never a successful tool for Fascist indoctrination; as such, the songs in this scrapbook appear to be more sentimental and folkloric than propagandistic. In slate blue paper wrappers, with the title calligraphed in black ink to front cover. The mimeographed pages bear the official stamp of the OND and the choral school. Repair to spine and some edgewear, else about fine.

        Dracula

      New York: Grosset & Dunlap,, [1930]. Octavo. Original orange cloth, titles to spine and upper board in black. With the dust jacket. Very lightly rubbed at extremities, spine slightly faded, contents lightly toned. A beautiful copy in the exceptional dust jacket. This New York edition was produced to cash in on the success of the stage play. Dracula was first adapted for the English stage by Hamilton Deane in 1924, the adaption being authorized by Stoker's widow. Deane had originally intended to play the title role himself, but in the event opted for the role of Van Helsing. This production toured England for three years before settling in London. In 1927 the play was brought to Broadway by Horace Liveright, who hired John L. Balderston to revise the script for American audiences. The American production starred Bela Lugosi in his first major English-speaking role, with Edward Van Sloan as Van Helsing; both actors reprised their roles in the 1931 film version, which drew on the Deane-Balderston play. The rear flap of dust jacket has printed instructions to "Preserve this wrapper for future reference", and a list of Grosset and Dunlap publications on the verso, indicating how by this date printed dust jackets were no longer treated as disposable wrappers to be discarded before sale.

        U.S.S. ALGONQUIN C. G. 328 Black & White Images

      [Seattle, WA]:. Ca 1930.. Oblong format: 8" x 11-1/2". 10 pp. autographs pages, unused except for five penciled names (all dated 1930) + 40 leaves of black mounting paper, unpaginated, with last two leaves unused. Images mostly snapshot size of 2-1/2Ó x 3-1/2Ó, or 3-/12Ó x 4-1/2Ó. Laid in: A menu from Thanksgiving dinner 1929, one 5Ó x 7Ó portrait of the crew, two 8Ó x 10Ó photographs, and a 1955 officialÕs Seattle Gold Cup committee ribbon [with Harvey's name-tag at top].. Brown suede album with hand-painted suede covers with suede ties, with front cover having a hand-printed title ÒPhotographs U.S.S. Algonquin C.G.Ó & Coast Guard emblem.. Photographs generally Very Good or better. Album - Very Good.. An extensive, albeit unofficial, visual record of life aboard the USS Algonquin, commissioned as a Revenue Cutter in 1897 and retired late in 1930. The Algonquin operated along the East Coast of the United States with additional assignments in the West Indies and the Gulf of Mexico. Later, in cooperation with the U.S. Navy at the onset of World War I, the Algonquin patrolled and defended Chesapeake Bay, with subsequent assignment to European waters, escorting over 750 ships safely in her rounds between Gibraltar, England and the Azores. In 1919, the Algonquin was transferred to the West Coast, assigned to the 13th Naval District, which meant patrolling the Pacific Northwest, as well as the islands and coast of Alaska, which included protection of endangered seals. Evidence suggests this album compiled by Farrell Harvey, a documented Algonquin crewman [F 1c] during the late 20s/early 30s, while the ship was stationed in the PNW. These primarily uncaptioned photographs illustrate the rough and ready life of sailors such as Harvey during their shipboard tour, with divers images of the crew, their drills and daily tasks, and significant occasions such as the Equatorial Line Crossing Ceremony. Many photographs show sister ships and other vessels, coastline scenery, whaling, and people encountered in the tropics and divers scenes while patrolling along the Pacific Northwest Coast. A wonderful primary source for seeing the life of a Coastie aboard a cutter during the late 1920s, and into the beginning of the 1930s.
