(KENT, Rockwell ) MELVILLE, Herman
Chicago: The Lakeside Press,, 1930. 3 volumes, large quarto. Original black cloth, bevelled boards, titles and vignettes to spines in silver, abstract design and volume numbers within simple frame to front boards in silver, top edges black, others uncut. Housed in the original aluminium slipcase. Wood-engravings throughout by Rockwell Kent. Very light marking to covers, spines very slightly faded. Slight offsets from illustrations, as usual. Slight scuffing to slipcase. An excellent copy. First Rockwell Kent edition, limited to 1,000 sets. With a pencilled presentation inscription by Rockwell Kent to the front free endpaper of volume 1: 'To Jerry M. Stepanek by Rockwell Kent'. This is one of the finest editions of Melville's masterpiece and one of the great American illustrated books of the 20th century. In 1926, Rockwell Kent (1882–1971), then just beginning to establish his fame as an artist, was approached by R. R. Donnelley and Sons to illustrate a new edition of Richard Henry Dana's Two Years Before the Mast. Kent demurred, suggesting Moby Dick instead. Kent was given complete freedom to design and illustrate the three-volume set. The resulting work has been hailed as a masterpiece of 20th-century book illustration and credited with reviving public interest in a sublime but difficult novel.

Bulat. Allasyz Kuly [i.e. Godless Humor]. Ufa: Bashgiz, 1930. 93 pp. 18x12,5 cm. Original illustrated wrappers showing two laughing faces tearing up the page from Quran. Owner's signature on the title page, minor rusting of the staples, tear of the rear wrapper, couple of spots in the texts, otherwise very good. Very rare. One of 5000 copies printed. In Bashkir language. In pre-Revolutionary times Islam was a leading religion of the region of Bashkiria. The fight against the religion started by Soviet state targeted Bashkiria as well. It's known that in the early 1920s 2414 mosques were active in the republic while by 1934 the number dropped to 323. The party was creating the 'anti-religious' clubs over the republic, called 'The friends of Bezhbozhnik magazine'. Usually those groups didn't differ muslims from christians but this particular publication has targeted Islam. It contains poems and feuilletons ridiculing the clergy and the followers of the religion. The book has been printed in latin characters, this version of Bashkir script existed for only 10 years, from 1930 to 1940. Traditionally from the Middle Ages Bashkir people used Arabic graphics for their language, but by the 1920s this script was created, using Janalif (a unified in 1926 script for all Turk languages of the Union). In 1939 the decision was made to change all the scripts of Soviet languages to Cyrillic characters, and in haste a new Bashkir script was created that remains till today.

NEMIROVSKY, Irene
New York: Horace Liveright, Inc, 1930. First Edition. Sugar designed dustjacket. One of only two novels by this author to be published in the United States during her lifetime. "A business man belonging to that international and shady world of casinos-that of Biarritz in this instance-condemned to make money ceaselessly and in spite of himself by his family and by force of circumstances. His character, that of his wife Gloria, and of their daughter Joyce, are brilliantly presented from the word 'go'. The ignominious use which his women make of him, the disgust which this Jew, sure of his power, comes to feel for life, for men and for money..." Nemirovsky was a French novelist who died at the age of 39 in Auschwitz, Nazi Germany-occupied Poland. She was arrested by the Nazis for being classified as a Jew under the racial laws, which did not take into account her conversion to Roman Catholicism. Némirovsky is now best known as the author of the unfinished Suite Française, two novellas portraying life in France between 4 June 1940 and 1 July 1941, the period during which the Nazis occupied Paris. These works are considered remarkable because they were written during the actual period itself, and yet are the product of considered reflection, rather than just a journal of events, as might be expected considering the personal turmoil experienced by the author at the time. Near Fine but for modest stain to top page edge, in near Very Good price-clipped dustjacket, top spine end chipped, closed tear at lower spine area, tiny chips and wear at edges.

[Berlin], 1930. Two fine original watercolor and pencil drawings, on card stock, measuring 13 � 8.5 cm, tipped to black colored paper. Both drawings with Masiutin's estate stamp, one additionally signed in pencil and dated "193?" (illegible). Very good. Two original watercolor drawings by the Russian artist Vasilii Masiutin, most likely produced during the 1930s, when Masiutin occasionally designed costumes and sets for theatre performances in his Berlin exile. Masiutin (1884-1955, also Masjutin), whose early work blended symbolism, the grotesque, and even surrealism, was occasionally referred to as the Russian Goya. He was active in a range of media, including lithograph and woodcut, as well as producing original drawings and paintings. After 1921, he emigrated and settled in Berlin, where he collaborated with numerous Russian emigre publishers, such as "Neva" and "Gelikon," as well as illustrating many German translations of Russian classics. While largely unknown in Russia until recently, he is now being rediscovered an increasingly the subject of exhibitions and publications.

Shostakovich, Dmitrii
Leningrad: Gosudarstvennyi Malyi Opernyi Teatr, 1930. Small octavo (17 × 12.5 cm). Original staple-stitched printed wrappers; 12, [3] pp. Wrappers very lightly worn; spine fold a bit rubbed; faint private stamp inside rear wrapper. Rare souvenir booklet distributed during the premiere of Shostakovich's opera The Nose (marked "not for sale"). The opera was produced by Nikolai Smolich, with artist V. V. Dmitriev and conductor Samuil Samosud. Shostakovich wrote the libretto with Georgii Ionin, Aleksandr Preis, and Evgeny Zamyatin. The booklet contains a preface by the Artistic-Political Council, which carefully justifies the opera's musical complexity to proletarian viewers - an important step given the controversial responses to the opera even before its premiere. A brief statement of Shostakovich's aims follows, then two short articles by the critic Ivan Sollertinskii and the stage designer. The final leaf is a feedback form, to be filled out and submitted by the viewers. First begun in 1927, when Shostakovich was only twenty-one, The Nose was the composer's first opera. His turn to the nineteenth-century writer Gogol (and, in part, Dostoevsky) was controversial: "the opera was harshly criticized by the proletarian wing for its avoidance of a Soviet theme, its musical complexity, and its inaccessibility to the masses" (Laurel E. Fay, Shostakovich: A Life, 55). The present brochure clearly attempts, as much as possible, to counter these accusations. Shostakovich had enough sympathizers to complete the project and the opera premiered on January 18, 1930. It was halted after … [Click Below for Full Description]

Tkhorzhevskii, Ivan Ivanovich (1878-1951)
Paris: Knizhn. Delo, 1930. Large octavo (24 × 18.5 cm). Original blue decorative wrappers by Boris Grosser; 193, [2] pp. Signed and inscribed by the author to a fellow translator on the front flyleaf (Sablina). Wrappers lightly worn, edges rubbed; some fading and loss of spine strip at ends; internally very good. A monumental collection of French poetry in Russian translation, featuring the work of over seventy French poets of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, prepared and with a preface by Ivan I. Tkhorzhevskii, Russian emigre poet and translator. Among the many poets included are Verlaine, Rimbaud, Maeterlinck, Claudel, Gide, Proust, Apollinaire, Jean Cocteau, Paul Valery, and Valery Larbaud. Tkhorzhevsky's translations were far from universally appreciated. The poet Vladislav Khodasevich was reputed to have quipped about his translation of the Rubaiyat: "I had a terrible nightmare. I dreamed that I was a Person poet and that Tkhorzhevsky was translating me" (Karlinsky 315). And Vladimir Nabokov, in a letter to Gleb Struve, ridiculed Tchorzhevsky's translation of Rimbaud's "The Drunken Boat" for his unwarranted additions (such as a captain of the Russian intelligentsia). Wrappers designed by Boris N. Grosser (1889-1982), a French Jewish artist of Russian birth who illustrated numerous books published by Russian emigres with his distinctive woodcut designs. After studying with Bilibin, Grosser continued his training in Munich and Paris. After 1918, he lived in Odessa and in 1920 he emigrated, settling in Paris after 1921.
