        The Collected Sonnets

      Joh. Enschede for Halcyon Press / A.A.M. Stols, Maastricht, Brussels and London 1930 - One of 16 extra-illustrated copies (16 full-page illustrations, the regular edition has 11) on pearl-white imperial Japanese vellum w. 3 extra suites of the portrait and the plates: one on pearl-white imperial Japanese vellum, one on Japanese vellum, and one on Dutch Pannekoek paper with the watermark "The Halcyon Press A.A.M. Stols Maastricht". Wright has signed every extra image in full (48 total). Beautifully bound (original binding) by Louis Malcorps (signed) in cherry Niger morocco. Wright's image of a female nude blocked in gold on the upper cover. Contents fine, binding near fine (tiny 1/16 inch nick in top gutter), spine just a touch lighter than the boards. A very beautiful binding. This copy comes with a small portfolio containing the original prospectus and 3 rejected proofs of the plates, signed and/or annotated in pencil by Buckland Wright. Note that the colophon calls for five rejects. These rejects are inferior strikes on inferior paper of the final-state plates, not variant images, so not very interesting either way. The entire production is housed in a custom morocco-edged slipcase with only minor shelfwear. The pearl-white Japanese vellum plates are incredibly vivid, the best strikes of any John Buckland Wright images that I have seen. Reid A1(b). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Scrapbook]: Pittsburgh Area Families 1908-1930

      Pennsylvania 1930 - Quarto. Measuring 10" x 12". Green pebbled cloth with leather corners and spine with "Scrapbook" stamped in gilt on the spine. A collection of 243 sepia toned or black and white photographs measuring 2.5" x 3.5" to 3.5" x 5.5" affixed to white pages with captions, as well as related ephemera. Very good minus album with removed photos, cracked spine, and worn edges with near fine photographs. A photo scrapbook beginning around 1908 from the Pittsburgh area of Pennsylvania centering on the families of H. Leibold and Wilbur K. Steele. Included are group photos and scenes of upper middle class life in Pennsylvania. They include posing around new cars, attending an automobile party in 1917, photos with their horse "Dave," and on vacations to Gettsyburg, Texas, Niagara Falls, and Georgian Bay in Ontario. Another vacation page shows a group of passengers, including the Steele family, on a steamship to Cuba in 1916. The two families were part of the Pittsburgh Field Club which boasted a golf course designed in 1914 by Alexander H. Findlay and which hosted the PGA Championship in 1937. Photos of the group can be seen here lounging on the green and posing with golf clubs captioned, "W.K. Steele and party," as well as solo pictures of Leibold golfing. Steele is also pictured at rail stations with overturned train cars. A fishing trip in Georgian Bay shows Mr. and Mrs. Steele with friends in rowboats, the ladies watching from the pier, and the men posing with their catch. Also included from the trip is a tin type depicting a fairly large group of men posing. Interspersed throughout the album are newspaper clippings from the area, a Red Cross membership card, and a few letters. Five pages at the end of the album are dedicated to clippings of Charles Lindbergh. An extensive album depicting the life of well-to-do Pennsylvanians over the course of two decades.

Ninety-eight line poem, followed by two pages of notes.The question mark after ''Who's'' on page 2, line 8, has been erased by a previous owner. This question mark denotes the first state of the book. It was subsequently dropped, though the sheets were bound up indiscriminately and first or second states can have any number from 1 to 300.Staples rusting. Cover edges slightly creased and rubbed. Very good. The rear half of the wraparound band is missing, but this doesn't affect the announcement printed on the front that this work ''was awarded the £10 prize for the best poem on Time in a competition judged by Richard Aldington and Nancy Cunard''.

        Photo album]: Young Woman's College Album from 1924 to 1930 in Ypsilanti, Michigan Featuring a Photograph of Mary Pickford

      Ypsilanti, Michigan / Virginia / California 1930 - Oblong octavo measuring 8" x 6". 59pp. String-tied black leather over stiff paper boards. Contains 218 gelatin silver black and white or sepia toned photographs measuring between 2.5" x 1.5" and 4.5" x 2.75" with captions, with additional ephemera from 1924 to 1930. Tears and chips with some pages detached but present thus very good with near fine photographs with tiny tears and creases. The photo album contains a plethora of photographs featuring Esther Davis and her adventures. Most pictures are of the three Davis daughters; Alice, Rachel, and Esther either posed or candid shots with their friends taken at Michigan State Normal College in Ypsilanti, Michigan. Esther Davis is seen dancing and smiling with all her glee club members, standing outside wearing fancy clothing or costumes, and graduating high school and college. Esther Davis lived in the Bessie Leach Priddy House, a sorority, at Michigan State Normal College. While most of the pictures are from Michigan, some are labeled from places in Virginia and California. Two of which feature photos of Mary Pickford on the set of *Little Annie Rooney* which was being filmed in West Hollywood, California. Pickford was 33 at the time of filming but played a spry and determined young Irish girl. The movie became one of the highest grossing films of 1925. Pickford is seen smiling with the cast in one photo and then posing in the other. Both photos are fine with "Mary Pickford in 'Annie Roonie," written on the bottom edge. An interesting collection of photographs from a young woman during 1924 to 1930 documenting her adventures with friends and family, completing her education, and her encounter with Mary Pickford.

      ADRIEN AUGUSTE LEDUC 1930 - 22 ETUDES PREPARATOIRES ART DECO REPRESENTANT DIVERSES REGIONS dont la BRETAGNE, LE PAYS BASQUE, la CAMARGUE, BERRY, ALSACE, contrecollés sur 10 feuillets 21/29.7cm. - LEDUC Adrien Auguste ; manufacture de Sèvres. Décorateur ; chef du laboratoire ; formes et décors à la MANUFACTURE DE SEVRES entre 1919-1954. - De l’Art Déco à l’abstraction. Le courant Art Déco s’impose à Sèvres avec l’arrivée d’une jeune équipe d’artistes. De cette collaboration naissent d’autres créations très fortement liées aux tendances du style 19 caractérisant la période de l’entre deux guerres. Ainsi, le décorateur Jean Beaumont n’hésite pas à mélanger les tons primaires et apporte un style neuf par son interprétation florale moderne. Les décorateurs, à l’exemple d’Adrien LEDUC, Maurice Herbillon, ou encore la créatrice Anne-Marie Fontaine, participent à cet élan. A la fin des années 30, l’ornement est jugé trop envahissant L’adoption des motifs géométriques vient chasser les effets naturalistes des décors floraux. Dans les années d'après guerre, les artistes Jacques Despierre et Camille Hillaire insufflent un nouveau style de décor à Sèvres au moment où le courant de l’abstraction tend à restreindre la place du florilège et en livrer une nouvelle interprétation. Un retour au décor classique floral qui a toujours illustré la renommée de Sèvres s’impose en s’adaptant au goût de l’époque. Mots clés : [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Cinq études d'architecture pour les "bars automatiques Presto" à Paris (14 bd des Italiens et Place de la Bourse), 1930

      Paris 1930 - 5 dessins originaux signés : 1) extérieur du bar automatique Presto 14 bd des Italiens, encre de Chine et aquarelle signée sur calque monté sur carton (image : 42,5 x 28,5 cm, carton : 65 x 49 cm), 2) étude pour l'extérieur pour un bar Presto (non retenu ?), encre de Chine et crayons gras signé et daté (1930) sur calque monté sur carton (image : 62,5 x 43 cm, carton : 63 x 58 cm), 3) projet d'intérieur, encre de Chine, aquarelle et crayon gras signée sur calque monté sur carton (image : 46,5 x 33 cm, carton : 64,5 x 50 cm), 4) projet d'intérieur, encre de Chine et crayons gras signé et daté sur calque monté sur carton (image : 62 x 30,5 cm, carton : 62 x 47,5 cm), 5) projet d'intérieur, encre de Chine, aquarelle et crayon gras signée sur calque monté sur carton (image : 19 x 17,5 cm, carton : 30,5 x 23 cm). Deux des cartons portent en outre le cachet de l'architecte. La façade du 14 bd des Italiens fut réalisée quasiment à l'identique. D'après les documents que nous avons pu voir, le mobilier et certains aménagements intérieurs figurant dans les études sont identiques ou proches de ce qui a été finalement réalisé. Né à Vienne en 1897 l'architecte Otto Bauer s'est installé à Paris en 1926. Il y réalisa les bureaux du quotidien "Le Journal", ainsi que ces deux "bars automatiques" de la chaine "Presto", l'un 14 bd des Italiens (actuellement occupé par la BNP), l'autre à l'angle de la place de la Bourse, de la rue Vivienne et de la rue des Filles-Saint-Thomas, à l'emplacement de l'actuel immeuble de l'Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF). Il réalisa également une résidence à Garches (où s'installera plus tard le chanteur Guy Béart) et dessina aussi intérieurs et mobilier. Saisissants dessins d'architecture art-déco. Salissures et petits accidents aux cartons, les études elles-mêmes en bel état, sauf la plus petite d'entre elles, avec une trace de pliure longitudinale. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Bookplate in Australia. Its Inspiration and Development

      Tyrrell's Galleries, Sydney 1930 - Octavo, 30 pages with 10 tipped-in bookplates. Quarter cloth and papered boards, with the printed paper label on the front cover; all edges uncut; a fine copy with the original textured glassine dustwrapper (now with minor restoration). The colophon, signed by Barnett, states that the book is 'Reprinted from the 1929 Year Book of the American Society of Bookplate Collectors and Designers'. In fact, the original printing was unillustrated. In the Book Collectors' Society of Australia 2009 publication on Barnett, the bibliography by Mark Ferson lists this item as Barnett's first separate publication on the bookplate. However, Ferson does not record a separately-paginated reprint of the ASBCD article, an inscribed and signed copy of which we have handled, which presumably predates this Tyrrell edition. Ferson notes a signed and numbered edition limited to 50 copies, as well as this unlimited edition, but does not record that there are two issues of the latter. The superior form is as described here; the standard form is in wrappers, unsigned. This copy comes from the collection of Edward Edgar Pescott (1872-1954), horticulturalist, naturalist, author and book-collector; his wattle-design bookplate is tipped in on the half-title. The page facing it is inscribed [by R.H. Croll] to 'E.E. Pescott with the good wishes of the friends gathered to wish him and Mrs Pescott bon voyage. Melbourne 9th March 1939'. The bookplate of the Field Naturalists Club of Victoria is tipped in on the same page. Tipped in on the front flyleaf is the 'Mutual Store' menu for the farewell dinner, signed by 17 guests, including Pescott, Croll, Charles Barrett, Crosbie Morrison, and Charles French. An autograph letter signed by Barnett, relating to the occasion, is also tipped in. Please use the 'Ask Bookseller a Question' link below to confirm availability and postage charges.
