        AVANT-GARDE POETRY: IZBRANE PESMI [CHOSEN POEMS].

      Ljubljana, Slovenia: Tiskovna zadruga . 1931 - 8°. [1] printed title, 171 pp. including a portrait and a fascimile of a manuscript, original illustrated wrappers in green and black, unbound pages, as originally published (Very Good, old owner's remark on title page, wrappers slightly dusty with tiny tears). A second try to publish avant-garde poems by one of the most important Slavic modernist poets, Srecko Kosovel, whose works were never published during his lifetime, was made five years after his death in 1931. This is the fist illustrated edition with a portrait of the author on the cover.A Slovenian poet Srecko Kosovel is today considered one of central Europe's major modernist poets of avant-garde and constructivism. Born in Tomaj, today a Slovenian town near Gorizia and in vicinity of the Isonzo Front during WWI, hes parents moved him to Ljubljana in 1916. After the war he stayed in the capital, as his home town was annexed to Italy, where the Fascists soon started making a major pressure on the inhabitants. In Ljubljana he was writing poetry in an avant-garde circle of artists, many of who escaped the Fascist regime. Kosovel was unable to publish any of his works during his lifetime, as his poetry was not understood by a conservative circle of publishers. He died suddenly at the age of 22, when visiting his parents, of a desease, which followed a bad cold. A year after his death, in 1927, Kosovel’s friend Alfonz Gspan published his late friend's 66 early poems in a work Pesmi (Songs). Our book is an uncommon second try to publish Kosovel’s poems, including a cover with a poet’s portrait and biography in the introduction, written by a literary critic Anton Ocvirk (1907 - 1980). Other editions of his poetry appeared after WWII, but it was only the collection Integrali 26, published in 1967, again by Ocvirk as an editor, which presented Kosovel’s constructivist design of poetry in facsimiles, which put Srecko Kosovel among the major mid-European poets.

        Signed original photograph of Gandhi on board SS Rajputana.

      1931 1931 - Original wallet-sized photograph (73 x 48 mm), framed and glazed (overall 215 x 260 mm), double sided-mount displaying Gandhi's signature on verso of photograph, facsimile of inscription mounted alongside image on recto. In excellent condition. A fine original, candid image of the great Indian statesman, signed on verso "M. K. Gandhi 10-9-31", captured on the deck of SS Rajputana, wearing his dhoti and standing alongside Captain H. M. Jack of the P&O Line. We believe the man behind the lens to be the distinguished Associated Press journalist and camerman James A. Mills (1883-1942), "a tall, handsome, soft-spoken man who had been appointed chief of bureau in Moscow in 1924 He travelled to the Balkans, Ethiopia, the Near East, India, Manchuria, northwestern China, and across the Russian steppes He covered Mohandas K. Gandhi's struggle for independence in India in the 1930s, winning Gandhi's favour by treating him as an 'intensely appealing human character, rather than as a fanatic or freak'" (Breaking News: How the Associated Press Has Covered War, Peace, and Everything Else, 2007, p. 266). Mills was the first journalist to conduct a filmed interview with Gandhi, on 30 April 1931 (released in cinemas by Fox Movietone News). For his own personal use Mills preferred Filmo and Eyemo movie cameras and wrote a piece entitled "Filming Mahatma Gandhi" for Filmo Topics magazine (January 1932) in which he revealed that "Mr. Gandhi took a solemn vow, some thirty years ago, that he would never pose for a photograph, a painting, sculpture, or any other artificial reproduction of himself It was no easy task for a photographer to break down this formidable barrier of prejudice on Mr. Gandhi's part toward being filmed. But I accomplished it by simply 'taking the bull (or shall I say lamb) by the horns' and filming the Mahatma without his permission Until he faced my battery of still and motion-picture cameras, I had never known Mr. Gandhi to 'look at the lens'. To be sure, he had appeared in photographs before, but these pictures were taken 'on the fly', so to speak, and without Mr. Gandhi's consent, and never once did he look at the lens. Invariably he kept his eyes looking down or to the side. On the steamer, between Bombay and Marseilles, however, he actually looked squarely into the Cooke lenses of my cameras". The Associated Press photographic archive shows an image clearly taken at the same moment as ours, with Captain Jack (hands on hips this time) posing alongside Gandhi. Gandhi's signature dates from two days before his arrival in London (12 September), en route from Bombay (Mumbai) via Marseilles, to attend the Second Round Table Conference, where he was the sole representative of the Indian National Congress. The Conferences were organised by the British Government to discuss constitutional reform in India. However, the Second Conference concluded without agreement: "The government hardly even listened to Ganhdi's demand for immediate and full responsible government. Disgusted with the proceedings, he left England in December 1931" (Peter Heehs, India's Freedom Struggle 1857-1947: A Short History, OUP 2004). The Round Table Conferences did lead eventually to the passing of the Government of India Act, 1935, but this "pleased few in India. [Nehru calling it] a 'Charter of Slavery', and humorously referred to the safeguard-ridden document as 'a machine with strong brakes but no engine'" (ibid.). A highly appealing and authentic document, taken at a key moment during the Indian struggle for independence in which Gandhi played such a pivotal role - captured by a photographer with whom he had a warm relationship and from the days when he first consented to being photographed.

        Penhally

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1931. Very Good/Good. First edition. Modest overall wear, very good in age-toned, good only dustwrapper, with the front spine-fold professionally reinforced on the verso. Inscribed by Gordon to her first cousin, Marion (Manny) Meriwether, using her own nickname ("Kidy"): "To my dear Manny with much love, Kidy." The author's uncommon and fragile first novel. Gordon's reputation as the "den mother" for the Southern Literary Renaissance has overshadowed the excellence and enduring qualities of her own work, which are certain to be better appreciated by future generations of critics. Exceptionally uncommon, especially signed.
