The dust jacket has some rubbing at the edges, a 1 1/2-inch tear where the front panel meets the flap, and a few small chips at the top of the front panel and spine. This copy belonged to Academy Award-winning actor Jack Palance, and the bookplate from the 2006 sale of his personal property is loosely laid in. RARE signed and in dust jacket. Thomas Mann won the 1929 Nobel Prize in Literature. Signed copies of Mann's first editions, especially in English translations, are uncommon. Signed copies of Mario and the Magician, especially in the dust jacket, are rarely seen in the market.

        SUSPICIOUS CHARACTERS.

      New York: Brewer, Warren & Putnam, 1931., 1931. First edition. First U. S. edition. Originally published earlier in the U. K. in 1931 using the title, THE FIVE RED HERRINGS. Some minor darkening to orange cloth at spine, but all lettering remains clear, else a crisp, near fine copy in dust jacket, with light professional restoration to the extremities. A landscape painter was found dead half submerged in a stream. On the bank was his easel and stool and a half-finished picture in which the paint was still wet. He had been seen sitting at his easel painting at ten o'clock in the morning and again at eleven, and when the body was found, it was only two o'clock in the afternoon. But ... rigor mortis had set in to prove that he had been dead for ten or twelve hours. Lord Peter Wimsey is called, and while red herrings and blind alleys abound, he weeds out the false evidence and leads the police directly to the murderer.

        Pattern Books Two volumes

      1931. 1931 and 1938-1939.1931 and 1938-1939Two pottery design pattern books containing original water colours of designs used by Staffordshire potteries including Royal Crown Derby designs, Avon Ware etc. These two volumes reveal a typical pattern for mid-range ware, hand painting and gilding applied over transfer print outlines in some cases. Each item has an allocated number. Book One 1931 number 4436-5426 with details of glazes and images given for each piece. Book Two similarly is numbered 6563-7544. The pottery is not identified but may have been in Hanley. In the first book emphasis is on art deco designs whilst the second book is more wide ranging including classic "Cottage Gate" and "Willow Bridge" designs. Together they indicate how over almost a decade there was a dilution of art deco style towards more populist forms. The books are cloth bound, frayed at all edges and the spine of volume one is called for. Marbled end papers, stiff card pages. 4to. These books appear to have come from one of the lesser known potteries but the images reveal the wide range of clients served including the hotel market as well as retail clients. The images are all hand drawn. Their purpose was for use by the china painters, gilders, travellers and agents. It also meant that a matching item could be re-ordered if required.

        India. Speeches and an Introduction.

      London: Thornton Butterworth, Ltd,, 1931. Octavo. Original orange wrappers, spine and covers printed in black. Housed in a red half morocco slipcase by Maltby's of Oxford. Tiny puncture to top left-hand side of front wrapper and first 5 leaves, slight spotting to edges of text block but overall a remarkably bright copy. Excellent. First edition, first impression, wrappered issue (the book was issued simultaneously in hardback). The 1930s are characterized as Churchill's wilderness years, with his unrelenting opposition to Hitler being seen as main cause for his ostracism. However "another, and earlier reason lay in his bitter opposition to Baldwin's India policy Â… Churchill had always hit hard; not for him a round of gentlemanly sparring between friends. His fight to maintain full control of India employed not just the clenched fist but the bludgeon" (Woods, Artillery of Words).

N. gab die Schriften seines großen Lehrmeisters heraus, dessen Nachruf er auch 1709 verfasste.

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..\" Versand D: 15,00 EUR Narrenliteratur, Satire, Humor, Karikierung, Österreich, 18.

        Parallèlement. Vingt-trois eaux-fortes originales de Édouard Chimot.

      Large 4to (c. 330 x 250 mm). Loose and entirely uncut in the original printed wrappers; pp. [4, blank], [2, half-title and limitation], [2, blank], [2, title printed in red and black], 147, [3], 23 full-page etchings with aquatint (some colour-printed or tinted) in the text; spine of wrappers a little rubbed and worn, remnants of contemporary half-calf folder and slipcase; a few leaves with marginal blue ink spots. Privately printed, number XVI of the 23 copies on japon ancien reserved for the artist (total printrun 198 copies), with Chimot's aquatint etchings in the first state, second state printed in sanguine with remarques, the second state with remarques, printed in black, the final state, and one plate in all states (dossier), limitation signed by the artist, a few manuscript notes in the artist's hand on folder of the dossier. This set not only comprises the additional versions of the illustrations but in the dossier complet d'une planche all stages of the plate to Prologue d'un livre, including the copperplate, a first charcoal and bistre study, the pencil drawing for the etching, signed by the artist, an early proof of the etching combined with the text, altogether, apart from the copperplate and the print in the book, 14 different stages of this particular plate. The French artist, book illustrator, printmaker (exclusively etchings) and editor Édouard Chimot (1880-1959) rented a studio in Montmartre, haunted by 'jeunes et jolies femmes,' his models. He began to illustrate texts; however, the First World War interrupted his career. After the War he was able to rent Renoir's old atelier, where he produced etchings alongside decadent literature as well as Henri Barbusse. From 1923 to 1931, as artistic director of Les Éditions d?Art Devambez he oversaw the production of many outstanding illustrated private press books but reserved some texts for his own art as etcher and printmaker, among them this collection of erotic poetry by the symbolist poète maudit Verlaine, which had been published first in 1889 and ever since has tempted book illustrators to publish their art alongside the poems. During the roaring '20s in Paris, Chimot became a central figure of the Jazz age with many connections to artistic and literary circles, including the Surrealist movement. He even embarked on film-making in 1924. Parallèlement is his last French limited edition artistic book production; the Wall Street Crash of 1929 had eliminated the economic basis for such productions for a long time. He later settled in Spain and continued illustrating books.
