[Missouri]. [Asylums]
St. Charles, Mo: Eden Publishing House, 1930. About very good.. Five issues, 8 to 16pp. each. Original self-wrappers, some issues stapled. Light wear and soiling, some creasing. Text lightly toned. "Published quarterly in the interest of the Evangelical Emmaus Homes for Epileptics and Feeble-minded, organized November 11, 1892." Scarce periodical documenting and benefiting the Emmaus Asylums as Marthasville and St. Charles, Missouri, homes for epileptics and mentally handicapped individuals. The magazine was primarily a German-language publication, though beginning in 1909 it featured more segments in English. These include a column reporting on the health of the inmates and activities at each asylum, submitted by the superintendent. Illustrated with woodcuts or halftones of the asylums, some issues include financial reports or fundraising information. Volume 31, No. 1 for 1930 features an article detailing the construction of an addition to alleviate overcrowding. An unusual publication, likely with a small circulation, we locate three copies of any issues in OCLC, at the Missouri Historical Museum, Webster Eden Library in Missouri, and the German National Library.

CHAR, René
[Nîmes], 1930. 1 volume in-4 (274 x 216 mm) broché sous couverture de papier rouge imprimée en noir sur le premier plat. ÉDITION ORIGINALE illustrée de 12 photographies, la dernière avec un COLLAGE ORIGINAL DE PAUL ÉLUARD ET ANDRÉ BRETON, destiné à masquer le visage de Louise Roze. TIRAGE : 10 ex. sur japon impérial + 3 ex. sur couché teinté + 90 ex. sur couché blanc. Celui-ci 1 des 10 sur japon impérial, et le n° 10, comportant par un geste volontaire des deux poètes ou un pur hasard UN COLLAGE ORIGINAL EN COULEUR, le seul connu (les exemplaires sur japon que j'ai pu recenser comportent le collage en noir, comme celui d'Éluard ou de Péret, conservés à la Bibliothèque Nationale, celui de Gala en mains privées, et aucun des ex. sur papier couché que j'ai vu). D'autre part, les exemplaires sur japon impérial, imprimés en premier, comportent 3 CORRECTIONS AUTOGRAPHES DE RENÉ CHAR. Les fautes typographiques furent corrigées avant le tirage des exemplaires sur couché prioux. Le recueil est dédié à Gala et Paul Éluard. Tous les exemplaires du Tombeau des secrets comportent un collage original d'André Breton et Paul Éluard sur la dernière illustration, recouvrant le visage d'une femme assise, Louise Roze, marraine de René Char, irritée par l'usage de son portrait. Cette solution géniale fut adoptée plutôt que de recomposer et réimprimer le livre. Le collage est différent pour chaque exemplaire. Rarissime et peut-être unique exemplaire avec le collage en couleur, broché en parfait état.

1930. Vintage original 8 x 10" (20 x 25 cm.) single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Peter Lorre, Frances Drake, Colin Clive, Ted Healy, Sara Haden, Keye Luke, Cora Sue Collins, dir: Karl Freund; MGM. Â This is likely the most bizarre film MGM made during the 1930s. Horror films were the rage and thus the great studio wanted an entry into the genre. Peter Lorre played one of his strangest roles, and in this still as Doctor Gogol he is at his creepiest frightening Frances Drake (as Yvonne Orlac) into submission. Lorre is an insane surgeon with an obsession with an actress (Frances Drake as Yvonne Orlac) who does an act in which she is burned at the stake. When her husband (Colin Clive as Stephen Orlac), a pianist, loses use of his hands in a train accident, the mad doctor transplants a pair of hands from a murderous knife thrower onto him. Strange murders are pinned on Orlac as Dr. Gogol makes a play for Yvonne. Â Great expressionist cinema art from director Freund (best known for his superb cinematography with its routes in German expressionism), and camera work by Gregg Toland. The film was mercilessly censored and cut because of the post-Code taboos that it attempted to break. Some countries would not even show it. The truncated version we have today is still effective, however. Â Ink stamp on verso for a showing at the New York City Roxy Theatre. Very minor handling, FINE.

TAGORE, Rabindranath; FERTE, Marguerite (trans.); KARPELES, Andree (trans.).
Publications Chitra: C. A. Hogman, Paris, 1930. 8vo., publisher's wrappers with title printed on front wrapper, wrappers in protective translucent cover, printed on Auvergne paper, edges deckle, ornamented throughout with gold-printed ornamentation and ornamental watermarks designed by Andree Karpeles, pp. [2 blank], 139, [4 blank]. Extremely scarce. 1 of 25 unnumbered copies printed on Auvergne paper. The edition was limited to 1,500 copies on standard paper, numbered from 1 to 1,500. In addition to this was a separate print run of 100 copies on Auvergne paper numbered I to C, of which 12 were each to contain a 'luciole' ('firefly') handwritten and signed by the author in Bengali and English. In addition to these was an even smaller print run of 25 copies, also on Auvergne paper, and unnumbered. This is an example of the latter, which also contains a tercet, in English, in Tagore's hand, signed by Tagore in Bengali and English, and dated, 'Shantiniketan, 2 October 1929'. The tercet reads, 'My fancies are fireflies / Specks of living light / twinkling in the dark,' which is the English translation of the book's first tercet. 'Lucioles' (or 'Fireflies' in English), which was translated directly from the Bengali by Marguerite Ferte and Andree Karpeles, consists of 256 epigrams and short verses. It was published as 'No.2' of the 'Feuilles de l'Inde' series by Chitra. Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) was a Bengali polymath and poet who in 1913 became the first non-European to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.

1930. This is one of 'Hurley's series of remarkable masthead panoramas' (Alasdair McGregor, in 'Frank Hurley. A Photographer's Life'). It is captioned in pencil on the verso: 'Film Panorama 64. Sunset off Proclamation', and McGregor puts this important image into context. 'The British Flag was hoisted and British Sovereignty asserted on 13th January 1930' - the main purpose of these expeditions - on Proclamation Island, five kilometres off Cape Batterbee, Enderby Land, as the ship could not reach the mainland. 'At noon, looking across a sea scattered with icebergs riding like some great gelid fleet and a mainland of ragged mountains all but overwhelmed by polar ice, Mawson read the prepared proclamation.... By mid-afternoon they were back at the ship. Davis [the captain] had not been willing to drop anchor and was eager to leave' (page 312). Much of this is obvious in this fine photograph, but the body of the seal on a blood-soaked sheet of ice will catch many by surprise ... Provenance: from the personal collection of Sir Douglas Mawson, leader of these expeditions, and by descent. The caption is in his hand.
