        Mickey Mouse Story Book

      David McKay Company Philadelphia: David McKay Company, 1931. First edition, first printing.. Fine. Yes. 8vo. (2),62pp. Original tan cloth blocked in black on the upper board; pictorial color pasteon. Nicely done black and white illustrations throughout accompanying the stories about Mickey having Traffic Trouble; going to a Birthday Party; stepping Out; and going Fishin' Around. Minnie and Pluto are featured, as well as the seldom seen Horace Horsecollar and Clarabelle Cow. The binding is fine and bright with only a few stray marks, a trace of soil and wear; it is very nice indeed. The text has a few fingering smudges and stains else is fine as well. Overall a truly lovely copy and scarce in this condition. This title seems to have been issued in three bindings: pictorial card covers, cloth spine with pictorial card boards, and full cloth with pictorial pasteon. So far as we can determine, the ful cloth binding is the scarcest of the three.

This is the German language version of a brochure promoting tourism in Italy that was issued in several languages. Alberto Capatti & Massimo Montanari write in their book "Italian Cuisine: A Cultural History": "During the two decades of Fascist rule, the exploration of gastronomy was completed by obtaining a complete map of the regions, by sketching out a preliminary inventory of typical products, and by promoting the awareness of local cuisines with books, advertising campaigns, shows, and festivals. The artist Umberto Zimelli was commissioned by ENIT (the Italian National Tourist Board) to create "La carta delle principali specialità gastronomiche delle regioni italiane" (Map of the principal culinary specializations of the Italian regions). This was a map with which foreigners could identify the best products available in the cheese or dessert industry, the best wines and preserved foods, and contemplate steaming bowls of pasta placed between bottles of wine and molds of cheese." A handsome Deco Map - one of the most sought-after items of Italian travel ephemera. .

        Harmonium

      NY: Knopf, 1931. Second edition, third binding. This edition contains fourteen new poems, while dropping three from the original edition. The complete printing of the second edition consisted of 1,500 copies, which were bound over a period of thirteen years. This copy is inscribed by Stevens on a preliminary blank. The inscription reads: "The basis of poetry is response" and is dated "Sept. 14, 1943." If one could condense Stevens's particular approach to literary creation into a single sentence, this could certainly be it. For Stevens, the pursuit of the real in poetry -- his Supreme Fiction -- is rooted in its immediacy: "Part of the res itself and not about it. / The poet speaks the poem as it is, / Not as it was." Poetry, in Stevens's view, is language used in response to life as it is lived, making this an extraordinary inscription. Stevens signed very infrequently, and inscriptions appear even less often. As a basis for comparison, the Neville copy of this edition, which sold in 2004, was signed ten days after Pearl Harbor and contained a single sentence inscription about war. This is a fine, bright copy in cloth-backed pale blue boards and with the dust wrapper, which is toned along the spine, has a nearly invisible split along the front fold, and has a chip in the upper left corner of the front panel.

        Original cover or wrapper design for The Grey Coast by Neil M. Gunn, The Porpoise Press; four figures in a central cartouche, c.1931, pen and ink, 192 x 251mm overall. The second edition of the novel was published by the Porpoise Press in 1931, an important Scottish publishing house later absorbed by Faber, after first publication by Jonathan Cape in 1926. Neil Gunn was 'arguably the most influential Scottish fiction writer of the first half of the twentieth century' according to Wikipedia. It isn't clear whether Freedman's wrapper design was used and the design wasn't seen by Ian Rogerson when preparing his monograph.

      This item comes from the material belonging to the Estate of Barnett Freedman, which is now offered for sale; the Estate consists of proofs of images of all kinds, Christmas cards, original book designs and proofs of dust wrappers, posters, original artwork and much more. Where appropriate, items will bear the studio stamp 'Barnett Freedman Estate', a blind-stamped legend in a circle.

        FRONTE, rivista bimestrale d'arte e di letteratura. Primo Fasc. n. 1 (giugno 1931), Roma, Tip. Camera dei Deputati, 1931

      cm. 28 x cm. 21,5 - brossura. Rivista, assai rara, diretta da Marino Mazzacurati . Copertina illustrata al tratto da Scipione (Gino Bonichi Dopo essere stata presentata nel marzo '31 su"Italia Letteraria" come un evento letterario-artistico, considerati gli artisti chiamati a collaborare, la rivista esce faticosamente nel giugno '31; poi, nonostante il successo e i consensi, vedrà la luce soltanto un secondo numero ad ottobre '31, sopratutto per le difficoltà economiche di Mazzacurati, costretto a Gualtieri (RE) e quindi impossibilitato a vivere a Roma e proseguire la sua regia e la ragnatela di relazioni per sostenere la qualità ed il livello della rivista stessa. Assai interessante è la "presentazione sul primo numero" che recita : ...Quelli che vogliono essere gli intenti di questa rivista, abbiamo la presunzioine di credere che risultino sempre più chiari dalla scelta degli artisti invitati ad offrirci il contributo delle loro opere. Un discorso preliminare, per quanto diffuso e cattedratico, non potrebbe portarci che a riconoscere nella felicità di una compiutezza espressiva il fine ultimo dell'arte... Nel 1988, per l'editore De Luca, uscirà un apprezzabile "quaderno di ricerca" che inquadra le vicende della Rivista, con interessanti riferimenti alla sua nascita ed agli importanti collegamenti tra i protagonisti, inseriti nel contesto culturale dell'epoca. , NUMERO UNO GIUGNO 1931 - Scritti di Carlo Carrà "Revisioni", Ernesto De Fiori "Scultura", G.B. Angioletti "La prosa italiana d'oggi", Giuseppe Ungaretti "Cinque Canti", Arturo Loria "La serra", Sergio Solmi "Pensieri sull'arte", Enrico Falqui "Punti di vista", Giuseppe Raimondi "Nuovi appunti su Baudelaire", Alberto Moravia "Due considerazioni sopra il romanzo inglese", Alberto Savinio "La voce del drago", Alfredo Mezio "Ritorno", Guido Piovene "L'arte di Alvaro", Giansiro Ferrata "Nota su Cardareli".

        L'UNIVERSALE diretto da Berto Ricci (1931-1935) vari fascicoli, Firenze, Mealli e Stianti, 1931

      Questa ricercata rivista politica-culturale non ha trovato ancora il suo equilibrato apprezzamento e critica nel panorama del '900, forse perchè emarginata dal regime al suo tempo allorchè sosteneva tesi scomode e non in linea con il pensiero dominante. La sua esistenza è strettamente legata al suo direttore ed anima Berto Ricci (Firenze 1905- Bir Ganduia Cirenaica 1941 in combattimento). Dopo aver frequentato i protagonisti della cultura fiorentina di inizio 900, collabora al Selvaggio, Il popolo d'Italia, Critica Fascista e fonda il Rosai poco prima de l'Universale. Con questa rivista egli teorizza una svolta antiborghese negli anni dell'impero, in contrasto con il movimento di Strapaese, per proporre un'idea del processo di modernizzazione all'iiizio degli anni '30. I suoi movimenti furono sorvegliati dalla "stima ostile di Mussolini" e portò avanti un'avventura politica ed intellettuale (apprezzata pubblicamente anche da BENEDETTO CROCE, che sui suoi Quaderni della Critica sottrae all'assoluto giudizio negativo sul fascismo, solo quei giovani fascisti alla Ricci cui "deve rendersi giustizia") assieme a tanti giovani e spesso suoi amici - molti provenienti dai "Littoriali" ideati da Mussolini per imbrigliare pensieri ed idee dei giovani ed invece rivelatisi al contrario occasione per discussioni e critiche (Luigi Bartolini, Dino Garrone, Romano Bilenchi.

        Heroes and Heroines of Bitter Sweet

      London 1931 London, [1931]. Number 84 (?) of 100 copies. Folio.

Split along fold of portfolio flap, else near fine . Rare portfolio commemorating Coward's hugely successful 1929 operetta. "Sentiment is out of fashion," says Beerbohm in his note. "Yet Bittersweet, which is nothing if not sentimental, is not a dead failure ... Sentiment goes on; unaffrighted by the roarings of the young lions and lionesses of Bloomsbury, Bittersweet goes on, too; and Mr. Cochran [Charles Cochran, the producer] (being a sentimentalist), has wished that his survival should be commemorated by me in some sentimental drawings, which are here submitted to you." Along with Coward, there are portraits of Peggy Wood, Georges Metaxa, Ivy St. Helier, and Cochran - each signed by the subject on the mount

        THE BLANKET OF THE DARK. Inscribed

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1931 Buchan, John. THE BLANKET OF THE DARK. London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1931. First Edition. 8vo. 314pp. + adverts. Cloth. Presentation Copy. A very good example showing moderate use in an excellent supplied near fine dustwrapper that has been expertly & modestly restored. Signed & inscribed by the author on the half-title page: "Alice Massey/with love/John Buchan/July:16:31". Alice Massey was the wife of Vincent Massey, the first Canadian born Governor General of Canada (1952-1959), a position also held by Buchan from 1935 to 1940. A superb Association Copy. This tale of Peter Pentecost, a clerk at the great abbey of Osney just outside Oxford whose life is turned upside down when he discovers he is the son of the last Duke of Buckingham, sixth in descent from Edward III, and should by rights be King instead of Henry VIII. Buchan skilfully weaves the story of the young clerk, around a tale of intrigue against the king, where "under the blanket of the dark all men are alike and all are nameless" Peter is destined to disappear "into a world of which there has been no chronicle, the heaths and forests of old England"; Buchan has spun this compelling tale of early sixteenth-century England, lived under perhaps the most repellant figure to sit on the English throne which he describes. "the face was vast and red as a new ham, a sheer mountain of a face".. Signed by Author. First Edition.

        Ein Ghetto im Osten - Wilna [A Ghetto in the East]

      Orell Fussli Zurich and Leipzig: Orell Fussli. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION, illustrated with 65 images of the Jewish ghetto in the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius. With preface by poet Zalman Chneour in Hebrew and German. "In the same year that his Paris was published, Moï Ver - under his real name of Moshé Vorobeichic- produced Ein Ghetto im Osten (A Ghetto in the East). The book, with both Hebrew and German text, featured his photographic record of the Jewish ghetto in the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius, documenting a way of life that would soon disappear under terrible circumstances. Even more so than Paris, Ein Ghetto im Osten was ostensibly a documentary book, but as he had done in his view of the French city, Moï Ver could not resist pushing the envelope of the documentary form. Once again, he used a variety of New Vision strategies, the most obvious being to take many images from upstairs windows looking on to the narrow streets of Vilnius's old Jewish quarter. This creates odd angles and a dynamic mise en scène for his pictures of people going about their everyday business on the street...But Moï Ver didn't stop there. He also introduced cinematic cutting and montaging techniques to heighten the interest... A poignancy has been added [to Ein Ghetto im Osten] in hindsight: it was made at the beginning of a desperately traumatic time for European Jewry" (Parr/Badger, The Photobook).Zurich and Leipzig: Orell Fussli, 1931. Small octavo, publisher's photo-illustrated boards. Very minor rubbing, some light soiling, generally an excellent copy.

        Hollywood Wife

      G. Howard Watt New York: G. Howard Watt. 1931. First. First edition. Bookplate of actor Jean Hersholt, a tiny tear at the crown, near fine in near fine dustwrapper (with art by Crary) with tiny nicks. An exotic tale of Hollywood orgies, it is not clear whether this is fact or fiction, but most likely some combination of both. Inscribed by the author: "To Jean Hersholt, a 'Hollywoodite' whom I am proud to know. Anabel Lane 'Miss Anonymous.'" Laid in is a two-page Autograph Letter Signed from Lane to Hersholt, recounting her trip across country by motor car, her health, a visit from her publisher, and a mention of "Von," possibly Erich Von Stroheim. Hersholt, the Danish actor best known for such roles as the grandfather in Shirley Temple's Heidi and after whom the famous Humanitarian Award was named, was an avid collector of first editions. Lane was a columnist and film critic, as near as we can tell. .

        UNTITLED ORIGINAL LITHOGRAPH [BURLESQUE CLOWNS]

      Np. 1931. [Np]. 1931.. Original lithograph, printed against tinted background and colored. 44.5 x 32.5 cm plus full margins. Small chip from extreme lower left margin, otherwise about fine. Matted. One of an unspecified edition, dated and signed in the stone, and signed and dated in pencil in the lower margin. George Kenneth Hartwell (1891-1949) was born in Fitchberg, Mass, and studied at the Art Students' League in New York City under Kenneth Hayes Miller, Edward Hopper and George Bellows. His work was exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago (1923), the Society of Independent Artists (1923), the Library of Congress (1944-46), the Laguna Beach Art Association (1945 and 1946) and the Carnegie Institute (1945), Hartwell worked as an illustrator for CENTURY, SCRIBNER'S and THEATRE ARTS. He is particularly known for his Depression-era depictions of the worlds of carnivals, sideshows and burlesque houses, of which this image is fine example. He executed this lithograph in at least four variations, monochrome, tinted and with at least two forms of coloring, as here.

        SERMILIK FJORD [Original Color Lithograph]

      New York: George Miller 1931. [New York: George Miller, [1931].. Landscape format, image size 33.5 x 47 cm, plus margins. Professionally matted and framed for the former owner under UV Plexi. Not examined out of frame, but visibly about fine, with a very minimum amount of the typical fading to the fugitive blue. A beautiful example of one of Kent's best lithographs, and one of his uncommon undertakings with color. In addition to the primary lithograph in black and white, a blue tint was printed from a lithograph stone, and a reddish-brown color was added via a zinc plate. An edition of 150 copies was prepared, each signed by Kent in the margin, and the stones and plate were effaced. The image depicts an encampment along the Fjord, and it is one of the most significant separate prints based on Kent's periods of residence in Greenland between 1929 and 1935. BURNE JONES 65. ZIGROSSER 52.

        Hill and Paul Landacre Signature

      Los Angeles: Bruce McCallister, 1931. Custom framed in Ivory Rag board and 1 inch Black Satin Lacquer moulding with conservation glass. Sized to 17.25 x 19.25 inches. First printing Fine Fine condition. Image: 8 x 6 inches, sheet size: 9.5 x 12.5 inches. Printed by Harold Young from the original block on wove paper with a NAVARRE 1547 watermark, this wood-engraving is from a collection of unbound portfolio plates engravinged by Paul Landacre which became the basis for his most coveted work: California Hills and Other Wood Engravings; McCallister, Los Angeles 1931. Strictly limited to an edition of 500, the bound volumes are quite scarce, and carry a dark admonition from St. Nicholas of Arrinstine, in Latin of course, for those intent on destroying the volumes for the images. This wood-engraving was never bound, and thus perfect to be treasured for the beauty of its composition. Without question one of the finest wood-engravers of the 20th century, Paul Hambleton Landacre (American 1893-1963) inspired a future generation of engravers with his confident and rhythmic patterning of contrasting lines of varying thickness, carved from wood. Through his talent and commitment to perfection he held a firm place in the brotherhood of such artist/luminaries as Rockwell Kent, Lynd Ward, and Fritz Eichenberg. The engravings by Landacre undoubtedly set the standard by which all wood-engraving is judged. It takes true genius to coax the vision of illumination, thus light from darkness, from a simple piece of end grain boxwood, and through his refined technique, Landacre's carvings truly become the American Landscape: the vastness, majesty or serenity of the fields, shores, mountains and dunes of the early 20th century California landscape, the furry of a prairie grass fire as only previously described by Willa Cather, or the elegance of a woodland nymph amid the dappled sunlight of eucalyptus trees. By the late 19th century, wood-engraving had all but degenerated into a means of didactic mass illustration, often created by a craftsman, void of the artist's inherent vision. In essence, thorough his commitment to the process and integrity of the wood-engraved technique, Landacre returned the responsibility, and joy, of vision, emotion and thus execution to the artist-engraver. In his article on the technique of engraving wood, Landacre states: "Even a dull sketch may become fascinating by virtue of the change into crisp white lines against the black and challenging nature of the medium. All sins are forgiven as you enter a new field with your design and even the fact that the lines are created by pushing the tool from you instead of pulling toward you, as in other forms of graphic expression, adds zest to the process".

Saknas gör Part 1-4 (1930), No. 9 (1950) & "An Index to the Colophon, New Series, The Colophon New Graphic series, and the New Colophon". Pappbanden med rak rygg är mycket känsliga så årgångarna 1931-35 är nötta och med skador, främst vid huvud och fot. Vol. III:3, 1938 har delvis lös rygg. Index-volymen är fuktvågigt.Alla av typografisk dignitet medverkade eller avhandlades någon gång i The Colophon; Bruce Rogers, Stanley Morison, W. A. Dwiggins, Goudy, Dard Hunter, Ruzicka, Francis Meynell, T. M. Cleland, Rockwell Kent, Fritz Kredel, Rudolf Koch, Henry Watson Kent, Rollo Silver, Will Ransom... you name it.Varje artikel formgavs och trycktes av de bästa tryckerierna i USA och Europa. Formatet och pagineringen var den enda begränsningen. Därför kan man se The Colphon som en gigantisk provbok med trycktyper, papper och typografisk tillämpning. Stor möda lades ned på illustreringen med instick, faksimiler, färgtryck och originalgrafik. Det mest sökta originalbladet är en signerad etsning i två färger av David B. Milne; "Hilltop", Part 5, 1931."Scholarly and popular contributions both make perfect reading for connoisseur and amateur of books and bibliography." (Ulrich & Küp sid. 3)
