        Summer".

      1930 - Gouache et mine de plomb, sur papier cartonné épais, (1930), 24.5 x 22.5 cm, encadré. Dessin titré ; tampon d'atelier "Harding and Giles" au dos. On voit une jeune femme dans un maillot de bain une pièce, coiffée d'un bonnet assorti et qui s'aprête à plonger sous le regard admiratif d'un homme. Le costume de bain est standardisé au début du XXe par les médecins, conjointement à la pratique des bains de mer. Il se compose pour les femmes d'une tunique et d'un pantalon bouffant : il est inconvenant de se montrer comme de colorer sa peau. C'est Coco CHANEL qui dans les années 1920 impse la mode du teint hâlé ou bronzage, qui devient synonyme de luxe : on commence alors à dénuder les bras, les jambes et les épaules, comme le montre ce dessin.Léon BENIGNI (1892-1948) a illustré Alfred de MUSSET (Bénézit, I, 624-25). Il travaille surtout pour la presse de mode en France et à l'étranger ; il participe aux revues Vogue, Frou-Frou, Fantasio, Femina, Modes et Travaux, L'Officiel, Art-Goût-Beauté, Art et Industrie.

      - Aquarelle et gouache, mine de plomb, titrée, (1930), 28 x 17 cm. L'hôtel Shepheard a été construit au Caire au milieu du XIXe siècle ; d'abord nommé "L'Hôtel des Anglais", il reste un des plus célèbres établissements de la ville jusqu'à son incendie en 1952. Il doit son nom à l'un de ses propriétaires, Samuel SHEPHEARD. Symbole de luxe et d'opulence, des personnages comme Wiston CHURCHILL y séjournent. D'élégants touristes prennent le frais sur la terrasse de l'hôtel, dans un ciel bleu azuléen ; les couleurs pastelles et vives des tenues forment une mosaïque chamarrée.

        Longchamp - Silver".

      1930 - Encre de Chine, lavis et rehauts de blanc, mine de plomb, annotations marginales, sur papier collé sur calque, (1930), 36 x 23.2 cm. L'hippodrome de Longchamp est inauguré par NAPOLEON III en 1857. A la suite sont créés plusieurs grands prix qui en font un lieu de prestige (Grand Prix de Paris, 1863 ; Prix d'Ispahan, 1873 ; Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, 1920). Très vite, Longchamp devient un des hauts lieux de la mode, notamment dans l'entre-deux guerres où près de 126000 spectateurs se pressent aux grands prix. La canne, le haut de forme, le chapeau et le lorgnon sont les accessoires essentiels de ce spectacle, que portent les silhouettes de BENIGNI.

        My Early Life, inscribed and dated pre-publication to Lord Beaverbrook

      This first edition, first printing, is inscribed and dated six days prior to publication on the ffep.  The unusually personal inscription inked in black in four lines on the ffep reads:  "To Max / from / Winston / Oct 14. 1930".  Confirmed by his bookplate, the inscription is to Lord Beaverbrook, William Maxwell Aitken (1879-1964, Knighted 1911, created Baron Beaverbrook 1917).  Churchill met Beaverbrook in 1911.  Their association proved lifelong, close, sometimes frictional, and both personal and professional.  A dynamic young Canadian millionaire, Beaverbrook moved to England in 1910.  Already a Member of Parliament in 1911, Beaverbrook quickly became both a force in Tory politics and a newspaper mogul.  During and between two World Wars Churchill was supported by Beaverbrook, beset by him, employed by him, served in the Government with him, or some combination of the above.  Their friendship lasted more than 50 years until Beaverbrook's death, less than a year before Churchill's own.  Beaverbrook was one of the three close Churchill friends dubbed with some disapproval by Churchill's wife the "three Bs" - including Bracken and Birkenhead.  Like Churchill, Beaverbrook was intelligent, opinionated, energetic, ambitious, and polarizing.  A formidable friend, he defended Churchill after the WWI Dardanelles disaster.  But just a few years after this book was inscribed their friendship suffered its greatest strain.  During the 1930s Beaverbrook shared "the almost unanimous conviction of England's ruling classes that Winston exaggerates the Nazi menace".  Beaverbrook opposed and belittled Churchill to the point of cruelty, calling his friend a "busted flush" and mocking his exclusion from Tory leadership.  Churchill wrote a widely syndicated biweekly column for Beaverbrook's Evening Standard.  But at the same time, Beaverbrook's famous cartoonist - Low - savaged Churchill.  Beaverbrook fired Churchill after Munich for stridently opposing appeasement  - both a financial blow and a lost rostrum.  Beaverbrook then published news of Churchill's financial distress.  Nonetheless, when Churchill returned to the Admiralty, he advocated to bring Beaverbrook into the Government.  When Churchill became Prime Minister, Beaverbrook became Minister of Aircraft Production - despite the King's explicit reservations - and later Minister of Supply and Minister for Production.  Beaverboook accompanied WSC on wartime visits to Roosevelt and led a British delegation to the Soviet Union, but resigned in 1942, precipitated by dissatisfaction with reconstruction of the Government.  Churchill wrote to him: "We have lived & fought side by side through terrible days, & I am sure our comradeship & public work will undergo no break."  and concluded "I am always yr affectionate friend."  Beaverbrook continued to encourage and defend Churchill throughout the war and beyond.  When Beaverbrook died, Churchill's secretary wrote privately "Sir Winston was deeply and obviously moved at Lord Beaverbrook's death, and in the last years no-one had been closer to him."  Churchill's inscription is in excellent condition, the ink only modestly age faded and the page only slightly toned.  The book itself is in very good condition.  The original coarse cloth binding is square, clean, and tight with bright boards but with some of the spine sunning endemic to this edition, an unobtrusive glue repair to the cloth at the foot of the spine, and light wear to the lower rear hinge.  The contents are bright and clean.  Beaverbrook's armorial bookplate is affixed to the front pastedown, with loss at the edges from an apparent and thankfully aborted effort to remove it.  The joints have been skillfully reinforced.  Moderate spotting is confined to the page edges.  The book is protected in a custom, half-morocco clamshell case in hand-dyed dark plum with raised spine bands and extensive gilt decoration.  Bibliographic reference:  Cohen A91.1.c, Woods/ICS A37(aa), Langworth p.131.

        Correspondance entre Harry Baur et son avocat, Maître Lévy-Oulmann.

      Ensemble d'une quarantaine de feuillets rédigés par Harry Baur, dans les années trente, sur papier en-tête d'hôtels, de brasseries, ou papier à en-tête aux initiales du comédien, qui habitait au 6 rue Frédéric Bastiat, formats divers. La plupart de cette correspondance comporte une signature autographe. Certaines lettres sont tapuscrites, beaucoup manuscrites. Il semble qu'elles soient toutes adressées à son avocat, Maître Levy-Oulmann, souvent dénommé « mon cher vieux ». La majorité traite de problèmes d'argent, de procès en cours, de doutes sur le chauffeur personnel dont le train de vie semblait à Baur au-dessus de ses moyens. Ce chauffeur l'assignera au tribunal après plusieurs années de service. Quelques lettres sont relatives au cinéma : Harry Baur se plaint que son nom soit plus petit que celui de Simone Simon, plainte à l'Excelsior pour la publication d'un placard publicitaire ne respectant pas les engagements contractuels du comédien, conflit avec des producteurs (Gallic Films, Gaumont). Une lettre révèle la sensibilité du comédien, dans laquelle il cherche un moyen d'aider un homme pauvre et invalide à ne pas se laisser voler par son patron. Ce riche ensemble, éparpillé sur la décennie 1930, dénote un esprit procédurier et soupçonneux, et il révèle la forte personnalité de Harry Baur, se posant comme un homme sûr de lui et de ses droits, ne laissant rien passer (« j'attaque qui me touche » écrit-il). L'écriture même témoigne de ce caractère trempé. (tv) Très bon couverture souple Edition originale Dedicacé par l'auteur

        Paul Robeson, Negro

      Harper and Brothers New York: Harper and Brothers. 1930. First. First edition. Corners worn, and the spine has been professionally and nearly seamlessly rebacked, a fair only copy, lacking the dustwrapper. A biography of Robeson by his wife. The Dedication Copy. The printed dedication reads "For Our Son." Their only child, Paul Robeson, Jr., was a mere two years old at the time of publication. This is Paul Robeson, Jr.'s copy with his bold ownership Signature on the front fly (obviously written at a later date). It also has the smaller ownership signature of Rev. Benjamin C. Robeson (Paul Robeson, Sr.'s brother). In addition, the subject of the book, Paul Robeson, Sr., has noted on the rear fly: "April 25, 1956. Have translated = The Soviet Biography . - John. Soldier of Peace." An exact timeline of ownership is impossible to determine, but we suggest this was one of Paul Robeson, Sr.'s own copies, was then given to his brother, and was later inherited by the dedicatee, to whom his mother probably did not see fit to inscribe a copy while he was still in diapers. .

        Cakes and Ale [Inscribed Association Copy]

      London: Heinemann. (1930). One of Maugham's major novels, a comedy about hypocrisy and literary fame, featuring a writer based on Thomas Hardy and his good-natured wife Rosie. In a 1958 interview, Maugham said it was his favorite of all his novels. A significant association copy, inscribed by the author to his longtime companion and later his adopted son: "For Alan Searle from his friend W. Somerset Maugham/ Oct 6. 1930." Maugham had met Searle in 1928, when Maugham was 54 and Searle was 26; Maugham's partner at the time was Gerald Haxton, and he reportedly alternated between Searle and Haxton until Haxton died in 1944, at which time he settled, at least partially, for Searle. Their relationship continued for the rest of Maugham's life. In 1962, Maugham disowned his biological daughter and adopted Searle and made him his heir. The change in his will was overturned by the courts, but after Maugham died Searle inherited a sum of money, the contents of Maugham's estate, his manuscripts, and the income from his copyrights for the next 30 years. Foxing to edges of text block, else near fine in a very good dust jacket with only modest rubbing to folds, spotting and shelf wear. . First Edition. Hardcover.

        Ruth et Booz. Traduction littérale des textes semitiques par le docteur J. C. Mardrus.

      Paris, chez F. L. Schmied, 1930.In folio (235 x 352 mm), brossura edit. camicia e custodia, pagine a fogli sciolti, 16 illustrazioni incise in xilografia a colori di cui 12 a doppia pagina. Tiratura limitata di 155 copie su "Papier de Madagascar", il nostro è l'esemplare n. 133, firmata a matita dall'artista. Tra i capolavori di Schmied nei quali si evidenzia la sua capacità oltre che di illustratore anche di curatore editoriale. Nella prefazione scritta dal figlio dell'artista si trova un inno al sole alle sue più occulte qualità, l'elogio del poeta Mardrus, il quale è riuscito a cogliere la spontaneità e semplicità dei testi orientali che ha tradotto, quelle qualità che rendono l'uomo capace di essere felice della vita. François-Louis Schmied (Ginevra 1873 - 1941). Figlio di un ex colonnello dell'esercito francese in Algeria e di madre originaria del Vaud. Studiò nella scuola municipale di Arti Industriali come apprendista di incisione su legno. Dopo 5 anni si trasferì a Parigi, dove lavorò per la ditta George Auber di intagli su legno. Gli venne affidato l'incarico di incidere le illustrazioni di Jouve per il Libro della Giungla di Kipling e riscosse molti apprezzamenti per la precisione con la quale era riuscito a riprodurre i bozzetti di Jouve. Questa precisione era dovuta all'impianto per la stampa e all'acquisto di un torchio al quale lavorava Pierre Bouchet. Dopo la guerra Schmied si dedicò alla produzione globale di edizioni di lusso delle quali lui stesso curava l'illustrazione, la parte tipografica sia la composizione dei caratteri e il progetto grafico della pagina nonché la stampa stessa.Partecipò a diverse mostre ed esposizioni, a volte da lui stesso organizzate ed allestite presso la Galleria George Petit, assieme a Dunand, Goulden e Jouve. Nel 1927 tenne una personale di dipinti e di rilegature a New York (alcuni volumi erano prezzati intorno a $ 10.000 ). Il collasso dell'economia mondiale ebbe per Schmied effetti drastici, infatti la richiesta di edizioni di lusso diminuì notevolmente. Iniziarono a girare sul mercato le sue opere di seconda mano. Al fine di proteggerne il valore cercò di acquistarne il più possibile accelerando in questo modo la propria bancarotta. Nel 1935 chiuse lo studio e molti dei suoi libri vennero venduti all'Hotel Druot di Parigi. Schmied andò in esilio in Marocco. Durante il suo esilio tornò ancora diverse volte a Parigi per curare l'esecuzione di incarichi eccezionali per libri come il Faust e Le tapis de prière.

        [Aviation]. Aircraft Markings

      N.p., (1930). (28)ff. An informative watercolor manuscript describing the wing and rudder markings of aircraft from the United States, Latin America, Asia, and Europe. Most of the markings date from around the end of World War I, charting the rise of military aviation. The wing marking included under the description "U.S.A. Navy" is the first National Aircraft Insignia for Naval aircraft, which was only used from 1917 to 1918. The symbol was then changed to resemble the markings of the other Allied Powers and to distinguish itself from the enemy. Interestingly, no markings are included from countries within the Central Powers. The illustrations and miniscule text have been executed with military-like precision. A fascinating view into the history of aviation, bound in full vellum. Front endpaper is detatched and cover shows slight soiling; else near fine. (3 by 2 1/4; 76x57mm).

        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 Illustrations for a Book?

      21 original pen and ink drawings on 12 bi-foliums of artist's paper stock. Nine of the bi-foliums consist of one larger drawing and one vignette; three of the bi-foliums contain a single drawing. Some modest soiling, dampstaining mostly in the margins of a couple drawings, encroaching on only one vignette, very good. Each large drawing is signed "C.R. Macauley"; each vignette is initialed "C.R.M."The Canton, Ohio-born artist won the Pulitzer Prize in 1930 for editorial cartooning in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, and is perhaps best known for popularizing the caricatured image of Teddy Roosevelt brandishing his "big stick." He concentrated on book illustration between 1901-1905. Titles he wrote and illustrated include Fantasma Land, The Red Tavern, Whom the Gods Would Destroy, Keeping the Faith, The Man Across the Street, and The Optimistic Spectacles. Among the many books he illustrated were editions of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson, Romance: A Novel by Joseph Conrad and Ford M. Hueffer, Emblemland by John Kendrick Bangs, and The Return of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle.A group of nonsense drawings, some of fantastic subjects. It is unclear from which book these illustrations came from, although they are almost certainly from the period when he was concentrating on book illustration (1901-1905), purchased by us with other book art from the estate of a publisher. A few of the drawings are similar, and may be studies for Emblemland (images of John Bull and another of a talking oyster), but we have been unable at this date to locate some of his other works that might contain the drawings. Provenance on request. .
