        THE BRIDGE A POEM ... WITH THREE PHOTOGRAPHS BY WALKER EVANS

      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.

      [London], [1930]. 1st Edition. No binding. Fine. CIRCA 1930 REPRINT OF THIS MOST FAMOUS SEPARATELY PUBLISHED COOK IMAGE N. Dance Pinxt. Engrd. by J.K.

Fine condition. , Cook sat for the original Nataniel Dance oil portrait, commissioned by Sir Joseph Banks, 'for a few hours before dinner' on 25 May 1776.

The son of a Yorkshire labourer, Cook learned his seamanship on small East-coast traders. Although only a warrant officer, he was chosen to command the Endeavour in 1768. He made three important voyages of discovery to the South and North Pacific - charting land, sea and stars - and was the first British captain to land in Australia. He was killed in Hawaii during a skirmish. From the portrait by Nathaniel Dance (1735 - 1811). The original portrait was commissioned by the explorer Sir Joseph Banks and was praised as an excellent likeness.

        Collection of Seven Manuscript Poems

      (Cambridge), 1930. Small octavo. 6ff. Group of seven manuscript love poems written by Sarton and presented as a Christmas gift to her teacher, Anne Longfellow Thorp. Four of these poems were published in the December, 1930 issue of Poetry magazine -- Sarton's first appearance in print. The four poems, which were grouped under the title "Words on the Wind," bear some subtle textual differences from this manuscript: in "First Love," a "moon-blind" found in the manuscript is changed to "snow-blind"; a repeating motif in "Let No Wind Come" is changed so that "Only a moth's wing beating at the core" becomes "Only a moth's heart beating at the core." Perhaps the most interesting revision occurs toward the end of "They Also." The line about a pair of flying geese parting in air "Back to his separate skin, his human feather" is changed in the published version to read "Back to his separate skin, his meager feather," thus pushing the metaphor a little further and leaving the reader to intuit the connection. Evidence that Sarton was working on this small gift book in late November is borne out by a letter to her parents on the 30th, in which she requests "bright blue Japanese paper for mounting... about twelve sheets of that beautiful Italian paper for my poetry books." She then outlines the design for the book: "I'm using the bird as endpaper and the peacock as frontispiece. The cover will be very plain with no design." In the end, though, she would use the linocut of the peacock -- printed in blue and orange -- on the front cover. The granddaughter of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Thorp taught at Shady Hill School, and she and Sarton became lifelong friends. Sarton's 1985 novel The Magnificent Spinster was based on Thorp's life. Fragile blue paper wrappers show chipping and are split along the spine fold; internally very fine.

        The Monster Issue

      New York. unbound. very good. Young, Art. Drawing. Pen and ink on paper. Signed. Page measures 14" x 20.25". Labor battling private ownership of utilities and other essentials, circa 1930. Penciled caption reads: "The issue that is over and above all other issues; but Mr Hoover and Mr Smith do not choose to see it." Includes original editing notes, some by Young himself. Minor overall wear. Art Young (1866-1943) was an American political cartoonist best known for his drawings and editorial contributions to the Socialist monthly magazine, The Masses (1911-1917). Young started out drawing for mainstream news and humor publications, earning a position at the Chicago Interocean where he worked with the well-known political cartoonist Thomas Nast. Inspired by Nast's work but suspicious of his Nativist politics, the artist quickly embraced political cartoons as an effective form of political activism, particularly as his disillusionment with contemporary social and artistic conditions grew. In fact, it was Young who coined the term "Ashcan School" in 1915 to disparage the lack of social engagement in the work of his fellow artists. In contrast, Young's drawings for The Masses and other publications starkly and often scathingly criticized the economic injustices and racial and sexual discrimination that, for him and his Socialist peers, characterized the United States' capitalist society. His controversial and often anti-war cartoons got him into legal trouble on several occasions, including a charge of conspiracy to obstruct enlistment filed under the Espionage Act in 1917. Art Young's legacy lies in the influence of his drawings on both his contemporaries and a younger generation of socially- and politically-engaged artists. This drawing is a wonderful example of the artist's work.

        [Portfolio]: Photographic Sketches by Hodes

      Solomon Hodes [Los Angeles: Solomon Hodes. circa 1929 - 1930]. Modern portfolio, with 30 loosely inserted mounted images and a mounted hand-lettered title page ("Photographic Sketches by Hodes"). Affixed to the title page is the cover of a small photographic periodical, The Developer of the Los Angeles Camera Club, dated in 1928, with a clipping, presumably from this issue, mentioning Hodes in an account of a photography expedition of the Club to Malibu Lake. The images vary in size, but are all relatively large, most being approximately 7.5" x 9.5". Most are captioned below the image, a couple are captioned within the image. The images show a fair amount of talent, and the subjects are various: bewitching costumed or semi-costumed women, bucolic landscapes, prosaic studies of gnarled older gentlemen, buildings and cityscapes, etc. All are very much of the period. We can find little about Hodes, beyond the bare mention of his existence and that he was born in Russia in 1880 and immigrated to the U.S. around 1916. Our best guess is that these are silver-gelatin prints. A detailed list of the photographs is available upon request. .

        Projekt metallizsjeskogo dirischablja na 40 zsjelovjek (Russian). (A Project concerning a Metal Dirigible for 40 People [or A Proposed 40-Man Dirigible]).

      Kaluga 1930. Orig. printed wrappers. 8vo. (16,5 x 12,8 cm). A few spots to margins of wrappers, otherwise mint. 91 pp. + 21 pp. with illustrations only.. Rare and interesting first edition (in Russian). Few of T.'s works are as extensive and elaborate as this one. T. was clearly very much ahead of his time in the design of the metal dirigible presented here. Science and technology only very lately grasped his conceps and by the time they did, their author was forgotten and T.'s name was, very wrongly, not mentioned. "The works of Tsiolkovskiy that date from the Soviet period repeat the principle assumption of his theory of the metal aerostat, provide counsel on the practical organization of experimental work, survey critically the existing types of dirigibles, and point out the errors in the research into metal-envelope dirigibles in the USSR and abroad." (Collected Works, 1959, III: p. 23).Being the father of the all-metal dirigible aerostat with changeable volume and gas heating, his technical foresight was greatly in advance of the level of industrial development at the time. He came up with a number of entirely new ideas concerning dirigible design. He set out to develop a dirigible that would be safe as well as fast, up until then the dirigibles in use were neither. He wanted to ensure a longer flight-time, and was certain this could not be attained with the fabric envelopes in use at the time, -they leaked gas, lost hight and couldn't stay aloft for long at a time. Besides that they were insecure due to fire-hazard and not sufficiently strong. As the very first, T. developed the idea of an all-metal envelope that was capable of altering size, - the "breathing" metal envelope. "Tsiolkovskiy's ideas found no support either in Russia or abroad. His ideas were dozens of years ahead of the science and technology of his time. The subsequent development of the technology of dirigible construction shows that Tsiolkovskiy's ideas were adopted by many authors who, however, treated them as recent discoveries, without mentioning the name of Konstantin Eduardovich." (Collected Works, 1959, III: p. 11-12). "Forty years of experimenting were needed to produce concepts that had already been expressed by K.E. Tsiolkovkiy, while aeronautics was still in the cradle." (Collected Works, 1959, III: p. 17). With the invention of the all-metal dirigible T. has proved to be ahead of both contemporary scientists and inventors as well as of his time. "His work is now a shining beacon in science, attracting the attention of the scientists and designers called upon to provide mankind with a reliable transport dirigible." (Collected Works, 1959, III: p. 26).The father of modern rocketry, Konstantin Eduardovich Tsiolkovski (1857-1935), is probably most widely known for his works on rocket propulsion, however his contributions to several fields of science have been immense and of exceedingly seminal character. Deafened at the age of nine and as a consequence thereof unable to go to school, he was forced to learn everything on his own hand. His father, a forester, was fond of scientific experiments, and though not wealthy, he had books on science and natural history. Tsiolkovski began by reading all books he could find on these subjects and as a consequence was able to construct quite complicated devices for measuring distances and many other things. Having seen how gifted his son was, his father sent him to Moscow, where Tsiolkovski spend all three years in libraries, receiving no teaching but his own, but still succeeding in taking a degree in physics from the university. T. can thus be seen as a purely self-taught man. After Moscow he settled in the small city of Borovskoye, where he taught physics at a school, spending all his spare time conducting experiments and writing about them. He devoted his intellect mainly to three scientific problems of the greatest importance at the time: The aeroplane, the (long-range) rocket and the all metal dirigible. Self-taught as he was and unable to come in touch with new publications in his fields of interest, he began with nothing and made all necessary calculations himself. Calculations and experiments were always at the base of his scientific works, and no conclusions were derived from intuition and guesswork. He was the first in the world to solve numerous problems concerning his three main interests, but unable to be recognized by the tsar-regime and considered, at best, a dreamer and a utopian, the struggle for his inventions was long and hard. Aged 24 he was the first in the world to formulate the possibility of applying the principle of reactive motion for flight in a vacuum, thus presenting a simple plan for a spaceship. He established the possibility of space travel by means of rockets, and is thus called the father of rocketry. He is also called the father of the all-metal dirigible. He is the first to propose and state that liquid fuel is necessary for spaceflight. He was the first in the world to make calculations for the air-jet and turbo-prop-planes, and it is in his works we find the most complete elaboration of the theory of rocket propulsion for many years to come. "In his works on rocket dynamics Tsiolkovsky, the first in the history of science, calculated the efficiency of the rocket and pointed out the advantages of rocket motors at high velocities." (Kosmodemyansky, Moscow, 1956, p. 69). T. saw it as necessary step for mankind to explore and inhabit outer space and nothing could prevent him from working on the possibilities of this; in short, among many other things, we owe to him the fundamental principles of rocket dynamics.After the Revolution T. became a member of the Academy, was allotted a personal pension in 1921, and became able to devote himself entirely to his scientific work. Now his contemporaries finally saw him as the founder of a new domain of human knowledge, a new science, he was, and he was awarded the Red Banner of Labour Order for outstanding services to his country
