        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.

      Two trade catalogues showing wallpaper samples from the thirties. No publisher nor date, Germany ca. 1930. Two oblong 8vo trade sample catalogues, containing over 250 sample sheets of wallpaper in various colourful designs. In original stiff wrappers with gilt title.* Very diverse and bright samples. Some of them would certainly be very fashionable again today. We could not find any information about which firm issued these catalogues. It seems that this was a luxurious line of wallpapers, since the designs are often very artistically composed. This is underlined by the words "Marke Excellenz" on the covers. Wrappers slightly worn on corners, samples all clean and bright and in mint condition.

The initial letters and the letterings for the title-page and headings have been engraved by her from designs by Joscelyne Gaskin” (Volume I, preliminary p. [8]).“The text has been newly prepared from the original editions by Professor W.L. Renwick…The headings and initial letters, drawn by Joscelyne Gaskin and engraved on wood by Hilda Quick, will be printed in colour. The decorations, in part based on the woodcuts in the early editions but for the most part original, designed and engraved on wood by Hilda Quick, will be coloured by hand” (Publisher’s Prospectus).“The eight volumes of Spenser, 1930, are equally good—different, as the character of the author, is, but in merita nothing to choose between them. Perhaps the small devices below Spenser’s sonnets, printed in black and in the vellum copies beautifully laid with gold, are the most discreet and opulent form of decoration, fitting and in flawless taste” (Franklin, p. 150).Franklin, pp. 150, 236.

Copies were generally issued in paper covers, with a glassine wrapper, in a green slipcase; some copies of the special issues were additionally enclosed, as is this, in a three-panel card wrapper covered with gilt paper, within the green slipcase. The entire construct is relatively delicate and especially liable to chip.

      [Hollywood: Paramount Studio], 3 July 1930.. [1],A1 - H22,[1] leaves, foliated in sequence format. Legal format. Mimeographed typescript, printed on rectos only of rose paper, and stapled at left margin. Studio filing stamps on title leaf, portion of terminal blank torn away, light use, else very good. In spite of the denotation of "continuity," this is actually a preproduction script for the third U.S. film adaptation (but the first sound version) of Clemens' novel, directed by John Cromwell, and starring Jackie Coogan and Junior Durkin in the leads. The film was released on 19 December 1930, and this unspecified draft of the script concludes with the screenwriter's note: "Will write last scene whereby Sid gets his dues from Aunt Polly later. Sam Mintz."

        THE TRAGEDIE OF HAMLET PRINCE OF DENMARKE. Edited by J. Dover Wilson Litt. D. from the second quarto printed in 1604-5 'According to the true and Perfect Coppie'. With which are also printed The Hamlet Stories from Saxo Grammaticus and Belleforest and English Translations therefrom. Illustrated by Edward Gordon Craig

      Printed by Count Harry Kessler at The Cranach Press, Weimar. Published by Emery Walker. London.,1930. LIMITED EDITION. Folio. (14.2 x 9.8 inches). 35pp booklet, J. Dover Wilson's 'Notes on The Tragedie of Hamlet Prince of Demarke by William Shakespeare MDCIV' bound in plain beige paper wraps with red buckram spine, housed in a pocket inside the rear board. Illustrated with Eric Gill's Title page, and eighty fine wood engravings by Edward Gordon Craig. Printed in red and blck using 18, 12 and 10 Point black letter type designed by Edward Johnston and printed on paper made of pure hemp fibre linen. Printed on the handpresses of The Cranach Presses between February and October 1930. One of 300 numbered copies printed on hand made paper which was made specally for the Cranach Press and with their watermark. There were also 7 copies printed on Vellum and another 15 on imperial Japanese Vellum. This copy one of an unspecified number issued in the publishers Vellum over beige paper covered boards, with vellum corner tips, lettered in gilt to the front board and spine. Many copies of the paper edition were issued in linen backed blue paper boards with a printed paper label to the spine, as advertised on the prospectus. This is an absolutely fine copy which has been protected by the covering of a plain paper dustwrapper and the publishers card slip case. Possibly the original publishers protective wrapper, but certainly contemporary if not, it has done its job of keeping the book in immaculate condition. The wrapper has some darkening to the spine but is overall very good. The slip case has 'Craig. Hamlet. Pub. by Kessler' written neatly in ink to the spine, plus two ink numbers (prices?) which are crossed out. The edges are bumped and rubbed but, with the dustwrapper, it has done its job of protecting the book. Craig started his designs while planning a production of Hamlet that eventually played at the Moscow Art theatre in 1912, and over the following 16 years worked them up to the complete suite of 80 engravings that were first published in the German language Cranach Press edition of 1928. Issued by Emery Walker in London in 1930, (100 copies of the paper edition were sent to America for issue by Random House) the Cranach Hamlet is considered by many to be one of the finest books of the twentieth century, described by Colin Franklin in his book, Private Presses, as 'a flawless monument'.:

        The Tragedie of Hamlet Prince of Denmarke

      Weimar: Cranach Press,, 1930. Edited by J. Dover Wilson Litt. D. from the text of the second quarto. Printed in 1604-5 "According to the True and Perfect Coppie", with which are also printed The Hamlet Stories from Saxo Grammaticus and Belleforest, and English translations therefrom. Illustrated by Edward Gordon Craig, and printed by Count Harry Kessler at the Cranach Press, Weimar. Folio (355 × 240 mm). Original japon vellum-backed Kessler binding, beige paper to covers, vellum tips, titles gilt to spine and upper board, top edge gilt. With the dust jacket. Contains, in a slip-pocket to rear pastedown, an orange cloth-backed folio with beige paper covers, with complementary notes on the text by J. Dover Wilson. Housed in the original beige card slipcase. 91 woodcut designs (two with colour) by Edward Gordon Craig in the text. Extremely minor marks to spine and covers, pages very slightly cockled, but all bright and fresh. A truly superb copy in the somewhat creased and tanned dust jacket. First English edition, first impression, preceded by the German language edition published by Kessler in 1929. One of 300 copies. This volume combines the magisterial scholarship of J. Dover Wilson, juxtaposing a number of Hamlet variants, with the extraordinary illustrations by Edward Gordon Craig (described by the London Times as being "brilliant and original" enough to "mak[e] one long to see Hamlet staged by Mr Craig"), in a beautiful Kessler binding. The A. Horne Dictionary of 20th-century British Book Illustrators (p. 154) asserts that "The Cranach "Hamlet" is one of the most striking and imaginative works of the twentieth century". Contains, loosely inserted, the review of the book from the London Times 5 March 1931, and a humorous poem by Ogden Nash, which imagines Ophelia writing an agony aunt letter to complain about Hamlet's "Shilly-shalliance" when it comes to romantic "dalliance", clipped from the New Yorker. A magnificent item, and very rare with the dust jacket.

      Paris: The Black Sun Press, 1930.. Quarto. Original printed wrappers. Very faint shadow to spine area around slipcase finger- pulls, otherwise a fine copy, in rather scuffed and rubbed silver foil covered slipcase, with a significant portion of lower (or upper) panel snagged (but present and still whole). First edition, trade issue. From a total edition of 283 numbered copies, this is one of two hundred copies with the text printed on Holland. Now acknowledged as among the defining poetic works of the American 20th century, THE BRIDGE also marks the debut of Walker Evans' photographs as book illustrations. Although Crane and the Crosbys had initially planned to use one of Joseph Stella's iconic paintings as the frontispiece, and a corresponding proof of the title pulled, they opted instead to include the photographs by Evans, who Crane had actually met at the Brooklyn Bridge in 1928. Crane was engaged with the decision, taking a careful hand in the placement of the photographs in relation to the text, and pleased with the final result, noting in a letter to Caresse Crosby: "I think Evans is the most living, vital photographer of any whose work I know. More and more I rejoice that we decided on his pictures rather than Stella?s." While one may surely regret that the edition with Stella's frontispiece didn't come about, the conjoining of Evans' photographs with Crane's poem has proved a durable aesthetic marriage, particularly after the selection of photographs was revised for the subsequent Liveright edition.
