        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

Eliot was right in saying that American fiction took its first step forward since Henry James in The Great Gatsby, then one should be free to say that As I Lay Dying, which makes Fitzgerald's technique seem wooden and creaky, was a tremendous stride forward, making possible levels of awareness, a sense of variety, and a saturation of reality that would have delighted Henry James" (O'Connor, The Tangled Fire of William Faulkner).

        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.

        As I Lay Dying

      Jonathan Cape New York: Jonathan Cape. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. FIRST EDITION, first issue, one of only 750 copies. "If T.S. Eliot was right in saying that American fiction took its first step forward since Henry James in The Great Gatsby, then one should be free to say that As I Lay Dying, which makes Fitzgerald's technique seem wooden and creaky, was a tremendous stride forward, making possible levels of awareness, a sense of variety, and a saturation of reality that would have delighted Henry James" (O'Connor, The Tangled Fire of William Faulkner). Petersen A7.New York: Jonathan Cape, (1930). Octavo, original cloth, original dust jacket. FIRST ISSUE, with "I" in the first line of page 11 dropped, in first state binding with lettering unbroken.
