        Compositions de Jardins.

      - Paris, Vincent-Freal 1931. Quarto by size, loose as issued in publisher's cloth-backed printed boards; 30pp and 44 plates. Text in French and English. A few signs of use but nothing too objectionable. An uncommon book on an uncommon subject: modernist garden design or, as the author puts it, 'a new era garden for a new era architecture'. Haffner, Professor of Architecture at Harvard, applied principles of house design to the garden and insists that these designs are not to be adapted to period houses - they 'belong to our present era of architecture'. The handsome plates are plans, elevations and perspectives (mostly birds-eye) from Haffner's drawings. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Lo!

      London: Victor Gollancz Ltd, 1931 - Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. Dampstain to top edge of rear board, spotting to edges, light partial tanning to free endpapers. A very good copy in the jacket with tanned spine panel and lightly chipped edges. First UK edition, first impression. Originally published in the US the same year. Perhaps Fort's most popular work, this is his third published non-fiction book, in which he is widely credited as having coined the term teleportation. Charles Fort (1874–1932) was an American writer and researcher into examples of the occult, supernatural, and paranormal. Today, the terms Fortean and Forteana are used to characterise such anomalous occurrences, and the International Fortean Organisation and the Fortean Times remain devoted to the phenomena he studied. Scarce in the dust jacket. [Attributes: First Edition]

        West Point Photograph Album and Scrapbook

      United States Military Academy, West Point, NY, 1931. Album. Very good. Large 17" x 12.5" album with 42 pages chock full of photographs, ephemera, clippings, and artifacts documenting a cadet's United States Military Academy experience at West Point, New York. The album, pages, and content are in nice shape. Over 90 photographs ranging in size from 2.5" x 2" to 9.5" x 8". The album has some minor wear; the gilt USMA insignia on the front cover has dulled. The binding cord may have been replaced. The album begins with Pratt as a Yearling (guess he didn't have much time as a Plebe although there is one photograph of him labeled "Plebe Hike" and another of Recognition Day) and continues through his year as a Firstie. Most of the photographs and items are from his Yearling year. Contents include: · West Point Songbook, Drill Roll rosters, West Point Horse Show tickets, menus, programs (exercise, graduation, theater, etc.), a cartridge box label, a rifle score book, Camp Illumination ticket and dance card, leave papers, an inspection notice, a sports schedule, railroad car window poster for an football game trip, train tickets, USMA logos, maps, etc. · Newspaper and magazine clippings · Photographs of the campus, formations, parades, individuals, the campus, various uniforms, bivouacs, a furlough to the Pratt family lands on the shore of Lake MacDonald in Glacier National Park and · Swatches of cadet uniform cloth, and an Army Marksmanship Badge with Rifle and Pistol bars. Pratt served in both World War II and the Korean War. He was an instructor at the Field Artillery School at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, the XO of the 2nd Communications Regiment, a staff officer at European Command, and a member of the Military Advisory Group to the Republic of Korea. He retired as a Lieutenant Colonel in 1956. One of the best West Point albums we've seen. The mix of photos and ephemera well document cadet life in the late 1920s.

An excellent copy in a remarkably bright jacket with very light crumpling to head of spine panel. First edition, first impression. "Keynes' intensive public activity with respect to the policy discussions of the inter-war period was reflected in the more than three-hundred articles he wrote for the 'highbrow' news magazines of the time (particularly the Nation and Athenaeum- of whose board Keynes was chairman in the 1920's - and its successor The New Statesman and Nation) as well as for the popular press. Many of the latter articles were syndicated in newspapers all over the world. A selection from these and similar writings were reissued by Keynes in 1931 under the title Essays in Persuasion. They are marked by a brilliant style, truly the work of a literary craftsman" (Patinkin in The New Palgrave). An exceptional copy. Mattioli 1810; Moggridge A 8.1.1; The New Palgrave III, pp. 19–39.

        Saishin Manshu shaschincho [The latest Manchuria Photograph Album ]

      [Dailian, (Dairen, Port Arthur), China]: Osaka Shosen Steamship Co., Wakayama, Showa 7,, [1931]. Landscape octavo (128 x 173 mm).. Original brown crocodile-skin-effect pictorial cloth, image of the White Jade Tower, Port Arthur (the Japanese Russo-Japanese War memorial) to front board, cord-ties, yapp edges, orange endpapers. With 87 photographic, colour-tinted, and colour plates (one of them a duplicate) all but one with tissue-guard, folding coloured pictorial route map titled "A Trip in Manchuria"; caption text in Japanese and English. A little rubbed, lacks rear free endpaper, a couple of leaves with short splits, remains very good. Fourth annual printing of this extremely uncommon photographic propaganda piece extolling the attractions and rapid development of Manchuria, issued in the year before the declaration of the Japanese puppet state of Manchukuo. No copies of this printing located in OCLC, which lists a copy of the 1932 issue in BnF, a 1938 issue at Princeton, and a 1943 version at Harvard. The "narrative" of the album opens with views of the port at Dailian, the docking of Osaka Shosen Steamships, views around the city, the South Manchurian Railway Company headquarters, electric trolley-buses, bustling street scenes, the Manchurian Railway Company Hospital, and numerous Russo-Japanese memorials and battlefields. Features numerous photos of tourist spots such as the hot springs at Xiongyue and Tang-kang-tzu; the White Tower of Liaoyang; picturesque transportation by covered wagon to the walled cities; sites in and around Mukden, including its "China Town" the old city walls, palaces, temples, and tombs. Other images are more revealing of the pervasive Japanese influence on the region: the Japanese Army barracks near Tieling; the garrison and base at Changchun, "north terminal of the South Manchurian Railway ? one of the most important places for Japanese policy in Manchuria and Mongolia"; views of Harbin, "Monument of the Two Patriots in the suburbs of Kharbin [sic.]"; together with numerous images of the Japanese-controlled industrial and infrastructural developments in the region. Fascinating insight into the process of Japanese territorial assimilation in China and issued on the eve of the Japanese Kwangtung Army group's seizure of Manchukuo, a puppet state that survived until the Soviet invasion of Manchuria in August 1945, which in turn contributed to the surrender of Japan and the end of the Second World War.

        Demonics.

      Cagnes-Sur-Mer: Roving Eye Press, 1931 - Octavo. Original green paper wrappers with black print on front cover and spine. Printer's stamp on bottom right of back cover. Creasing to spine and p. 7/8, fading at edges and spine, toning throughout; a very good copy. First edition, first printing, with a leaf of the author's personal letterhead laid in, printed "Robert Carlton Brown, Le Manoir, Cagnes-Sur-Mer, (A.M.) France". The collection features poems such as "Spring, put on a condom!" and a number of calligrams, for which Brown was well known, including here "Handle for a flame fan". Roving Eye Press was initially founded in the late 1920s by Bob Brown and co-managed by his wife Rose. It was part of a larger literary and artistic movement of small presses that served the modernist avant-garde, including Nancy Cunard's Hours Press. Cunard described Brown as, "at the very centre of his time, a zeitgeist in himself" (Saper p. 179). Roving Eye Press was mobile in both geography (moving with Brown from the spa town Bad-Ems, Germany, to Cagnes-sur-mer, France, and much later, in the 1950s, to New York City) and scope (publishing art, poetry, political pamphlets and even cookbooks).

        Neuer Lächerlich-jedoch vernünfftiger, bescheidener und Curioser Narren-Calender / Auf das Jahr 1710. Worinnen von Monat zu Monat ein nach seiner Natur und Eigenschafft entworffener Narr / nach dem jetzigen Stylum der Welt / auf das accurateste beschrieben wird. Eine Invention, welche schon zum Vierdten mahl continuiret und an das Tages-Liecht kommet / auch wegen sowohl beygefügter Nothwendigkeit des Calenders / als lustigen Schreib-Art der Curiosen Welt zur angenehmen Gemüths-Ergötzung dienen kan.

      16 x 18,5 cm. Tit. (in Rot- u. Schwarzdr.), 30 Bll. Mit Kalendarium in Rot- und Schwarzdruck u. einigem Holzschnitt-Zierrat. OBrosch. m. Deckelbild in Kupferstich. Rücken m. blauem Papierstreifen verstärkt u. m. altem hs. Titelschildchen. Vorderdeckel m. Wasserfl. u. an 3 Stellen m. unterlegten Randrissen, Rü. etw. berieben, Hinterdeckel wohl später m. altem Papier erneuert u. m. letztem Bl. verklebt (dadurch Leimschatten), Text im Seitenrand etw. braunfleckig, Ecken z. Tl. eselsohrig. Kosch XI, 108 Böck L., Ein Altwiener Narrenkalender (in Zs. f. Bücherfreunde 23 Jg., Hft. 3, 1931, Ss. 41-45). Sehr selten. Einer von (vermutlich) acht erschienenen Jahrgängen des Narrencalenders, verfasst und anonym herausgegeben von Johann Valentin Neiner (1679-1748), einem Weltpriester in der Nachfolge von Abraham a Sancta Clara, der sein lebenslanges Vorbild war. N. gab die Schriften seines großen Lehrmeisters heraus, dessen Nachruf er auch 1709 verfasste. Er beschrieb, ähnlich wie dieser in satirisch-volkstümlichen Mahnrufen die Ereignisse seiner Zeit und produzierte neben Kanzelreden auch so genannte Narren-, Moral- und Sittensatiren. - Von den bibliographisch nachgewiesenen acht Jahrgängen dieses Kalenders hat sich nur wenig erhalten. Ludwig Böck konnte seinerzeit nur 3 Jahrgänge auffinden: "Als Drucker und Verleger ist Peter Marteau in Freystadt (in einem anderen Jahrgang: Cöln) genannt, ein sicheres Zeichen, daß der wahre Druckort noch zu suchen ist. .. Jeder Jahrgang enthält neben derb-satirisch gehaltenen Prognostika auf die vier Jahreszeiten, die, von der bei Moralisten üblichen Übertreibung abgesehenen, sehr schätzbare Beiträge zum Bilde der Zeit liefern, und zu jedem Monat eine Abhandlung über eine Spezies von Narren. .. Zeichnen sich durch die Mannigfaltigkeit der Einfälle, die Kühnheit und den Bilderreichtum der Sprache, die Schlagfertigkeit des Witzes, sowie durch reifes und scharfes Urteil über die menschlichen Laster und Verkehrtheiten aus, und .. auch wertvolle zeitgeschichtliche Züge.."
