        The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism.

      London: George Allen & Unwin,, 1930. Translated by Talcott Parsons. With a foreword by R. H. Tawney. Octavo. Original black cloth, spine lettered in gilt, with the dust jacket. Ownership inscription "Stewart" to front free endpaper in ballpoint. Very slight rubbing to spine ends and corners, dust jacket spine darkened, with some chipping to spine ends; a clean, bright copy in a very good jacket, rarely seen. First edition of the first English translation of Weber's great work, which originally appeared in German across two issues of the Archiv für Sozialwissenschaften und Sozialpolitik (November 1904 and June 1905). He managed to substantially revise the text for its first publication in book form shortly before his death in 1920; it appeared under the title Die protestantische Ethik und der Geist des Kapitalismus and was intended as the first volume in a series collecting Weber's writings on the sociology of religion, though his death meant the project was never completed. "The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism is Max Weber's most famous as well as most controversial book. In it he traced the influence of religious ideas upon the conduct of men and challenged the Marxist thesis that man's consciousness is determined by his social class … Instead of completing his investigation of Protestantism, Weber began a comparative analysis of urban communities and of political organization as well as a study of the relation between religion and society. These wide ranging studies had the common purpose of defining and explaining the distinguishing characteristic of Western civilization. The Protestant Ethic was destined to serve as an introduction to this major theme of Weber's lifework, a specification of the interrelation of religious ideas and economic behaviour as the focus for further research. Weber's particular thesis – that Puritan ideas had influenced the development of capitalism – became the subject of a voluminous literature" (Bendix, Max Weber, an intellectual portrait, p. 71f).

        Her Privates We

      London: Peter Davies,, 1930. Octavo. Original ecru rough cloth, title lettered in black to the spine, and to the front board together with striking pictorial decoration of death and the soldier. With the glassine dust jacket with glued printed flaps. Endpapers mildly toned, a light scatter of foxing to the fore-edge barely encroaching on the margin, the jacket slightly shrunken as usual, short split to the tail edge of the front panel, no loss, an unusually well-preserved copy. First trade edition, first impression. Fictionalised account of Manning's experiences on the Western Front, particularly in the Battle of the Somme. Published the previous year in a limited edition of 525 copies as The Middle Parts of Fortune - the title taken from the line in Shakespeare's Hamlet immediately preceding "her privates we" - this lightly expurgated version met with great popular success buoyed by enthusiastic critical responses, such as that of T.E. Lawrence; "It's magnificent, a book in a thousand … No praise could be too sheer for this book … How admirable are its restraint, and humour, and vividness … there are too many sides to the book for it ever to be forgotten"; Hemingway claimed to read the book "every year to remember how things really were so that I will never lie to myself or anyone else about them"; while for E.M. Forster it was simply "the best of our war novels". This a superb copy in the extremely fragile, and therefore very rarely encountered, "experimental" glassine dust jacket.

        Portrait of a young woman

      [Adelaide : probably between 1930 and 1935]. Watercolour and gouache on paper, sheet 280 x 190 mm, signed lower right 'Rex Wood'; laid down on original board mount, removed from a frame at some point; in very good condition. Rex Wood was born in Laura, in the Mid North of South Australia in 1906, and studied painting at the South Australian School of Art in Adelaide. Although his first solo exhibition was held in Adelaide in 1935, his works - in various mediums - had been included in numerous Adelaide exhibitions from around 1930. He left for England in 1937, shortly after his second solo exhibition, and continued his studies in London before eventually settling in Portugal, where he remained domiciled until his death by drowning in 1970. The beautiful young woman depicted in this fine head-and-shoulders portrait is unidentified. Stylistically the work is strongly influenced by the Art Deco aesthetic, recalling in particular the female subjects of Tamara de Lempicka. The age of the mount and backing sheet confirms an early 1930s dating. The work is therefore a relatively early one in terms of Wood's oeuvre, painted in Adelaide prior to his initial departure from Australia. Although Wood is acknowledged as a highly accomplished Australian artist of some importance, relatively few of his works - either paintings or prints - are held in Australian public collections. He is represented in the collections of the Art Gallery of South Australia; the State Library of South Australia; the National Gallery of Australia; the Art Gallery of New South Wales, and the Hamilton Art Gallery. Provenance: Private collection, Melbourne.

        Dutch New Guinea Anthropological Photographic Album of Private 1930s Expedition

      1930 - Thirty seven images of an unidentified 1930s expedition in northeast Dutch New Guinea from Humboldt Bay (today Jayapura) to Fak Fak, including Lake Sentani (just inland from Jayapura). The album is an anthropological record focussing on the local people, with the Kaya Kaya identified. The images include males of all ages as well as warriors, females, family groups, and their stilt dwellings and canoes. This expedition took place during the period in which the Dutch were intensifying their exploration of western New Guinea, to keep out the British and Germans and to discover exploitable natural resources. There is an American connection with the album - the only identified person is one Charles Gary, an American from Louisville, Kentucky, who was in New Guinea presumably to investigate the possibility of growing tobacco there. The Gary Tobacco Company was apparently formed in 1915 as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Liggett and Myers. This leads us to speculate that Gary had an association with Richard Archbold, the wealthy American sponsor of seven expeditions to New Guinea, the first three of which he lead himself. The location of the the third expedition is congruent with photographs in this album. At the same time, the Australian Leahy brothers were active in New Guinea. The first photograph in the album intriguing- it is of three men, two in western suits (one carrying a large camera,) and one in clothes strikingly like the Australian army uniforms in W.W.I, with breeches and puttees. This man resembles Michael Leahy.This album likely records images taken during one of the private expeditions of the time. Its route is not known, but places named here include Hollandia in Humboldt Bay and Fakfak, which were both Netherlands Indies government administrative posts, established in 1894 and 1910, and used as staging sites for the Dutch government expeditions. In 1926, the American-Dutch collaboration called the Stirling Expedition, sponsored by the Smithsonian, traveled along the Mamberamo River to the highlands of Dutch New Guinea. The sepia tone photogravure images include:1. Image of a large native hut on stilts in the water2. "Papuan Warrior of Hollandia", with feathers of white cockatoo in his hair, cassowary feathers around his neck and ankles, boar's tusk in his nose. On the verso is written, in pen and pencil, "Please ret. photo to Mr. Charles Gary, 2611 Top Hill Rd."3. Sepia tone shot of 3 women carrying babies, their village behind them.4. Men of the village in front of a western building with illegible sign.5. Men beside an outrigger canoe.The carbon prints images include:6. Kaya Kaya warriors, 3 men with bows and arrows.

        Photograph Album from a member of the 31st Regiment documenting his service protecting the International Settlement during the Shanghai War of 1932 between China and Japan

      Shanghai and various Philippine locations, 1930. Album. Very good. The album measures 11.5" x 7.5" and contains over 260 photographs, most 3.5" x 2.5" or 4.5" or 2.75". The photographs are a mix of vernacular and more professional photos, some perhaps taken by a unit photographer. About 100 were taken during the Sino-Japanese conflict following the "January 28 Incident" in early 132, and the others were taken in the Philippines at Manila, Vigan, Bagulo, and Corregidor. Most have fading white captions on the album pages and more detailed descriptions on the reverse. There is also a 9.5" x 9.5" map of Shanghai with annotations identifying the war zone and regimental positions. The photos are in nice shape but have become attached to their mounting corners. Some of the mounting corners are detaching from the pages which makes it possible to read the descriptions on their reverse. The album and pages show some minor wear. On 4 February 1932, the U.S. 31st Infantry departed from the Philippines on board the USS Chaumont and landed in Shanghai the following day to bolster the defenses of the city's International Settlement as Japanese and Chinese forces began to fight on the outskirts of the city. The 31st quickly assumed defensive positions with the 4th Marines along Soochow Creek directly across from the Chapei district that became the focal point of Sino-Japanese fighting. The battle lasted through early March and intermittent fighting continued until a ceasefire agreement was finalized in May. The 31st returned to its garrison in the Philippines later that summer. (See Cornebise, The United States Army in China, 1900-1938.) Image highlights include: Regimental soldiers and locations (New World Building, Studio de Arts, motorcycle in front of 1st Battalion Headquarters, etc.), British military units marching through the streets and at the city's Race Track, Soldiers laying communications wire through the streets, Regimental officers posing with a "Chink" policeman (the unit's distinctive polar bear insignia is visible on several campaign hats), Block houses along the settlements protective walls, The location of "Charlie Chan" (a Chinese machine gunner who thwarted a number of Japanese advances), Japanese soldiers, and equiptment (infantry, marines, tanks, artillery, etc.), Chinese soldiers (many dead), Destruction and ruins throughout Chapei including the Northern Railroad station, and Coastal artillery and anti-aircraft batteries at Corregidor (three, six, and twelve inch guns and Ft. Drum, the "concrete battleship.)". A unique and important visual record of U.S. neutrality in the face of Japanese aggression in the years preceding World War II. As of 2017, no auction results for 1932 Shangai albums are found at ABPC or the Rare Book Hub although book of half-tone prints occasionally appears as dos Ah Fong's superb photograph book document the later Siege of Shanghai in 1937. No similar items are for sale in the trade. OCLC locates a similar album kept by a British soldier, but none from Americans.

        THE DOCUMENTS IN THE CASE.

      Ernest Benn Limited, [1930]., London - First edition. An exceptionally fine, bright, tight copy in a fine example of this usually fragile dust jacket, Housed in a quarter cloth and marbled paper clamshell case with titles stamped in gold gilt on the spine. A man dies due to fungi poisoning, or so it seems, because due to some irregularities in some of the dead man's correspondence, the case was re-opened. The second examination of the body was confusing because if the man had been murdered the method of poisoning was one of the most ingenious in the history of murder. At the same time the method the investigators decide upon to determine whether the death was accidental or the result of foul play is equally ingenious. A Haycraft/Queen Cornerstone mystery title and an exceptional copy of an elusive title.By far the best copy we've ever seen or handled. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Memoirs of an Infantry Officer [with important bibliographic significance]

      London: Faber and Faber, 1930. First Trade Edition of the second installment in Sassoon's lightly fictionalized autobiographical trilogy. 8vo: 334,[2]pp. Publisher's French blue cloth, spine lettered in gold, top edge stained pink, fore-edge rough-trimmed; pale yellow typographic dust jacket printed in blue and priced 7s/6d. Loosely laid in is a letter on Faber and Faber stationary, replying to a question asking why some copies of the first edition have uncut [rough-cut] page edges and others do not {Keynes describes the edges as "trimmed."]. "As a matter of fact, it was the author's wish that some part of the first edition should be produced with uncut edges and some 3,000 odd were published in this manner. However, as far as we are concerned there is no difference at all between the cut and uncut edges; both issues were printed simultaneously, the only difference being when the sheets reached the binder's cutting room." According to Keynes, 20,000 copies of the first trade edition were printed, of which (we now know from the testimony of the letter laid into this copy) only 3,000 copies were "uncut," making that issue by far the rarer of the two. An excellent example, with important bibliographic significance, Fine, square and tight (only lightly read, if at all); pages fresh, bright and unmarked; about Fine jacket, lightly dust-soiled, with several flecks of brown ink to back panel. Keynes A33a. In the late 1920s, "Sassoon turned to the prose sequence that was to occupy him for nearly two decades: the well-received Memoirs of a Fox-Hunting Man was followed by two sequels, Memoirs of an Infantry Officer (1930) and Sherston's Progress (1936), to form a trilogy published as The Complete Memoirs of George Sherston (1937). In these books, the central 'Sherston' character is a semi-fictionalised version of the young Sassoon up to 1917, from which family life ('Sherston' has no mother or brothers), education, and poetic ambition are excised."

        Rear-Admiral Richard E. Byrd ... and the Executive Committee of the Byrd Aviation Associates express to [recipient's name, Edward Dapp, in ink] their enduring appreciation in the equipping of the Byrd Antarctic Expedition. It is our privilege to attest, and we gratefully acknowledge, that without such assistance the accomplishment of the Expedition in the Antarctic would not have been possible ...

      [USA, Byrd Aviation Associates, 1930?]. A very large certificate (printed surface 420 x 265 mm, mounted on stiff strawboard) with numerous decorations and 13 vignette illustrations (one with a little applied colour) on polar themes; the design is credited to Harold Butterfield. It is signed in ink by Byrd and the Chairman of the Company, James Bush. Offered together with a companion booklet by Byrd, 'Into the Home of the Blizzard' (1928; octavo, [32] pages), with the recipient's name and the copy number (X-204) written in ink - but not by Byrd - on the presentation page. The cover of the booklet is a little fingermarked; it is still housed in the original mailing box with Byrd's printed label on it. On the front panel of the box a juvenile hand has executed a neat pencil drawing of the 'Bear', one of the ships used on the Byrd Antarctic Expedition II, 1933-35. Spence 225; Renard 242 (both describing the booklet only, Spence doing so imperfectly as noted by Renard; neither of them mention the box or the over-the-top certificate).

        Two original costume studies in pencil and watercolors, signed

      [Berlin] 1930 - Two fine original watercolor and pencil drawings, on card stock, measuring 13 × 8.5 cm, tipped to black colored paper. Both drawings with Masiutin's estate stamp, one additionally signed in pencil and dated "193?" (illegible). Very good. Two original watercolor drawings by the Russian artist Vasilii Masiutin, most likely produced during the 1930s, when Masiutin occasionally designed costumes and sets for theatre performances in his Berlin exile. Masiutin (1884-1955, also Masjutin), whose early work blended symbolism, the grotesque, and even surrealism, was occasionally referred to as the Russian Goya. He was active in a range of media, including lithograph and woodcut, as well as producing original drawings and paintings. After 1921, he emigrated and settled in Berlin, where he collaborated with numerous Russian emigre publishers, such as "Neva" and "Gelikon," as well as illustrating many German translations of Russian classics. While largely unknown in Russia until recently, he is now being rediscovered an increasingly the subject of exhibitions and publications. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
