        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.

        ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPH OF AUTHOR ZANE GREY And His Brother Romer Grey on a Bear Hunting Trip

      circa 1930. A fine original photograph of Zane and Romer Grey displaying the results of a bear hunt together. The Photograph is SIGNED BY ZANE GREY, but the ink has faded and only the impression remains viewable in angled light. Black and white photograph, approximately 8 by 6.5 inches, mounted in textured buff board with beveled edge and handsomely framed in wood and glazed. The photograph itself is in beautiful condition with no fading or chipping, the contrast is excellent and the image is defined and clear, frame and mounting are very fine, the signature however is faded to near invisibility. A very handsome original photograph of brothers Zane and Romer Grey. In hunting attire the two men are standing in a forested area with two black bears from their hunting trip. One of the bears is on the ground, the other suspended from a tree. Though an accomplished writer on many subjects Zane Grey is probably best remembered for his novels of the American West. He was a highly outspoken and influential conservationist. His main motivation behind the writing of his western novels was to spark interest in America’s great wilderness areas and National Parks, and thus he hoped to encourage others to preserve them. The period of his writing coincides with when many of the great National Parks we now take for granted were only coming into being. Without the influence of men like Grey one wonders how much lesser our modern America might have been. Romer Grey was known to frequently accompany Zane on his excursions out west and on his fishing excursions around the world. While also being a published author of books on game fishing and hunting, Romer was primarily a noted photographer. A fact which may explain the excellent quality and composition of this picture.

        Japan and Jazz

      Shiba, Tokyo: The Taiheiyosha Press,, 1930. Sketches and Essays on Japanese City Life. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles and pictorial design across spine and boards in black, patterned endpapers. Illustrations within the text. 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. 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.

        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 vesoi 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.

Walter Joseph Phillips (October 25, 1884 – July 5, 1963) was an English-born Canadian painter and woodcutter, acclaimed as one of Canada's most famous printmakers and for popularizing the colour woodcut in the style of the Japanese. His artistic career spanned from the 1900s through the 1940s, during which time his work was exhibited throughout North America and Great Britain. In 1940 he was asked to become a resident artist at the Banff Centre, then known as the Banff School of Fine Arts, where he played an important role in the development of their visual arts program. Its Walter Phillips Gallery, which focuses on contemporary art, is named after him. The Glenbow Museum in Calgary, Alberta holds an extensive collection of Phillips works and a research archive..

        The Master of Hestviken: The Son Avenger [Signed / Underskrevet]

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1930. First American edition. Hardcover. Very Good +/very good. A Very Good + copy of the first American edition, first printing (fading at spine extremities, modest soiling to the bottom of the page block), in a Very Good dust jacket (small chips and tears, with a larger chip to the top of the rear panel -- not affecting any lettering, toning to spine and to panel and flap edges), SIGNED BY SIGRID UNDSET on the half-title; the final book in Sigrid Undset's tetralogy, "The Master of Hestviken" (originally published in two volumes -- "Olav Audunssøn i Hestviken" and "Olav Audunssøn og Hans Børn" -- each of which contained two of the four novels). The "Master" was Olav Audunssøn, owner of Hestviken, a fictional medieval farm inspired by a summer cottage where Undset once resided. Sigrid Undset won the 1928 Nobel Prize in Literature "principally for her powerful descriptions of Northern life during the Middle Ages".. and the Kristin Lavransdatter trilogy, along with The Master of Hestviken tetralogy, were responsible for her winning the Prize. Signed copies of Sigrid Undset's works are rather uncommon. A Very Good or better copy of one of the Nobel Prize-winner's important works, SIGNED BY SIGRID UNDSET. Quite Scarce.

        Nu champêtre à la flute de Pan.

      1930 - Huile sur toile, signée en bas à droite, (1930), titrée "Madrid", 97 x 81 cm, encadrée. Roberto RAMAUGE (1890-1973), est un peintre argentin, né à Buenos-Aires. Il fait des études d'architecture et de philosophie, avant de se tourner vers la peinture. Il se rend alors à Paris et s'installe à Montmartre, où il devient un familier du Lapin Agile, qu'il peint. Il effectue de nombreux voyages en Europe qui enrichissent sa peinture (Bénézit, VIII, 590). La peinture représente une jeune femme, les jambes repliées, assise sur l'herbe ; elle tient une flûte de Pan dans sa main droite, telle la nymphe Syrinx. Aimée par le dieu Pan, celle-ci prie son père de pouvoir lui échapper. A l'instant où le dieu la touche, elle se transforme en roseau dont Pan fera sa flûte. Les couleurs lumineuses donnent beaucoup de charme à cette oeuvre de grande qualité. Provient de la collection du Prince Murat. Infimes accrocs au cadre. Oeuvre originale

        Vogue.

      1930 - Gouache et mine de plomb, encre de Chine, collage, signée en bas à droite (1930), titrée, 34 x 23 cm, encadrée. Maquette préparatoire pour une couverture de VOGUE par BENITO. Lucien VOGUEL et Paul POIRET introduisent BENITO auprès de CONDE-NAST ; dès lors, il travaille pour les magazines Vogue et Vanity Fair. Appartenant au groupe d'illustrateurs appelés les "beaux Brummel du pinceau" et qui comprend Barbier, Boutet de Monvel, Lepape, Marty, Brissaud, il est un pionnier de l'Art Déco mais s'inspire également des tendances cubistes et constructivistes pour créer ses couvertures. Il développe un style que CONDE-NAST appelle le "big head" : les corps de BENITO présentent des têtes imposantes, plantées sur des longs cous, avec une chromatie réduite à deux ou trois couleurs vives nettement tranchées, comme ici.
