GREGYNOG PRESS. BLUNT, William Scawen & Lady Anne.
Newtown: The Gregynog Press, 1930. Wood engraved frontispiece and 13 decorated initials designed and engraved by R.A. Maynard, all hand coloured and illuminated with gold. One of 275 copies, this one inscribed 'Out of Series' with a couple of excised areas from the colophon where a number would have been. Printed in Garamond type on Japanese vellum. Tall 4to., original calf backed, patterned paper covered boards, spine lettered in gilt. Spine only very slightly darkened with few small marks, tiny bit of rubbing to the very edges and other than the excised spaces on the colophon page, a very good copy in a later cloth slipcase. One of the cycle of tales from the important medieval Islamic romance of Salame Abu Zeyd translated from the original Arabic by Lady Anne Blunt and done into verse by William Scawen Blunt. Interestingly T.E. Lawrence rejected £20,000 to write an introduction to the book on the grounds that it was an Eastern subject. A magnificently decorative book and one of the best produced by the Press. This copy has a printed leaf tipped in which declares, "The leather on the back of this book has been made from fresh skins of English calves by G.W. Russell & Co of Hitchin who, advised by Mr. Douglas Cockerell, have succeeded in producing skins with the natural surface unimpared, which, it is confidently expected, will prove to be durable as the 'calf' used for binding in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries." Originally purchased directly from the remnants of the press which belonged to a Davies family member, this copy was then in a private collection for seve … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wakeman, Marion D. Freeman
No publisher [c1930], No place. This volume was likely bound for/by the writer illustrator Marion Wakeman in brick colored library cloth with a gilt title on the spine. It is titled "Fish Lines" on the spine and the water color illustrated title page. The pages are thick artist board with original ink illustrations (one to a page) and mimeo text (opposite illustrations) on thinner papers and mounted to the boards; all tipped in via a heavy woven tape. The boards before this bind, were held together by posts of some kind as holes in gutter show. This very charming story makes its way through all sorts of marine life with simple elegant ink illustrations all the while supported by humorous rhyming text. Mrs. Wakeman shows us; flounder, sponge, snail, sea robin, hermit crab, porpoise, sea horse and others. "The life of any little fish is the kind a child would wish" and "The snail's a most domestic beast. He's fond of home to say the least." are examples of Mrs. Wakemans accompanying prose. The title page contains an original water color of a sea horse, the remaining illustrations are all in black ink. The volume contains the one watercolor, followed by 19 black ink illustrations. Boards have some browning, one illustration with small tear and one loose but overall very good. Mrs. Wakeman is known for her engravings and aquatints of ocean life. The artist Marion Freeman Wakeman (1891-1953) was the illustrator of "The Curious Lobster" by Richard Hatch. This title appears to still be in print and reviews of a recent 2018 reprint found online are quite positive. It is possible th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Reiser, Anton. (Albert Einstein)
Albert & Charles Boni, New York, 1930. First edition of this Einstein biography written by Rudolf Kayser, a German literary historian and husband to Albert Einstein's stepdaughter Ilse under the pseudonym Anton Reiser. Octavo, original cloth, frontispiece of Einstein. Signed and dated by Einstein on the front free endpaper in the year of publication, "Albert Einstein New York 1930." In near fine condition. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Albert Einstein developed the general theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics (alongside quantum mechanics). Einstein's work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. Einstein is best known in popular culture for his mass-energy equivalence formula E = mc2 (which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation"). He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics for his "services to theoretical physics", in particular his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect, a pivotal step in the evolution of quantum theory (David Bodanis).

WPA - org. author]
[New York]: WPA (Works Progress Administration), 1930. Very good +. 50 glass positive lantern slides, each measuring about 3.25" x 4" (they are set into borders, so the actual images measure slightly smaller). One slide, depicting a Normandie destroyer in the New York harbor, has a few cracks, and a few others have some mild spots, but these are mostly in excellent condition, overall very good or better. Each slide has a typed caption and a small stamp that reads "WPA Project 6022." Half of the slides depict boats or maritime scenes in New York, while the rest show health inspections at various NYC locations, some hospital workers, and, perhaps most interestingly, five shots of the Riker's Island prison, which had only been opened in 1932, a few years before these images were taken. The slides are housed in a contemporary purpose-built wooden box, which has some old typed writing on the side, which is difficult to decipher: "WPA - NYC - 6022 [?] / Objective Teaching Materials [Project?] / Property of Board of Education". Though efforts to locate WPA project number 6022 were slightly beyond our modest efforts, we presume that these slides were produced by the Federal Writer's Project as part of their effort to create a visual teaching aid for each US state to be used in classrooms. A great piece of New Deal and photography history.

Ellery Queen
Queen, Ellery - The French Powder Mystery - Frederick A Stokes: New York, 1930 - First Edition / First Printing - Matching dates present on the title and copyright pages with no mention of later printings as required in order to denote the first printing of the first edition. The book has some light bumping, general shelf wear, sunning to the spine and some scuffs to the boards. Internally some child in the distant past got ahold of this book and used a pencil to add his flair to it. Someone has done every effort to remove markings internally and done an adequate job but there is still some visible evidence. The most egregious is to the front paste down. There are also Xs which were marked on the first handful of pages which scored through the paper. Those pencil markings aside internally there are a few scattered stains and some tanning. While this copy is far from flawless it is still presentable and readable of what is likely the scarcest of all of the Ellery Queen titles. This was only the second mystery published under the Queen pseudonym. A true scarcity and a cornerstone title of any serious mystery collection. All books are offered with a full 30 day postage paid return policy. All books which are in dust jackets will be mailed with a clear archival dust jacket protector fitted. Shipping costs can be combined if multiple purchases are made. Items will be packaged and shipped within one business day unless otherwise noted.
