        Horning Into Africa [*SIGNED*]

      (n.p.): Privately Printed. Very Good. 1931. First Edition. Hardcover. (no dust jacket; a custom-fashioned protective mylar wrap has been provided) [bumping and wear at top of spine, a bit of additional edgewear here and there, slight rubbing to gilt lettering and decoration on front cover, but still fully readable]. (B&W halftone photographs) INSCRIBED to noted actor/bibliophile Jean Hersholt, and SIGNED by the author on the ffep; also bears Hersholt's bookplate, on which he has SIGNED his own name. Uncommon, privately-printed account of the location filming of MGM's 1931 jungle adventure film TRADER HORN, the first non-documentary Hollywood film to be shot in Africa, as related by its director, W.S. Van Dyke II. Known as "One-Take Woody" for his no-nonsense directorial m.o., Van Dyke was a classic example of the self-made macho filmmaker, having worked his way up during the 1920s from assistant director to director of program Westerns, and thence into the top echelon of MGM's contract directors. His big break came when he was sent to Tahiti in 1927 as the studio's "observer" on WHITE SHADOWS IN THE SOUTH SEAS, planned as famed documentarian Robert Flaherty's first big Hollywood feature; when Flaherty proved inadequate to the task, Van Dyke was ordered to take over, and he delivered. Not only was the resulting film a box-office hit, but it solidified his reputation as a guy who could keep his head and operate under extreme conditions, far from the comforts of Culver City. So he was a natural choice to head up MGM's TRADER HORN excursion to Africa (or as it would have been called then, Darkest Africa), and off to Uganda he was sent, with what by today's standards amounted to just a skeleton crew of technicians, plus the film's principal actors, Harry Carey, Duncan Renaldo (later renowed as TV's "Cisco Kid") and Edwina Booth. Also in the company was a certain "Miss Chippo" (Josephine by name), who was not only Van Dyke's regular script girl but also his girlfriend. She had not been allowed by the studio to accompany him to the WHITE SHADOWS location in 1927, but presumably Woody had a little more clout by this time. Alas, their relationship ended shortly after they returned to the U.S., which probably accounts for the fact that Miss Chippo is, at best, a minimal presence in the book at hand, mentioned only a few times in passing. And to bring things back to Hersholt for a moment: yes, Van Dyke did direct him -- twice, in fact, in NIGHT COURT (1932) and HIS BROTHER'S WIFE (1936). In fact, the date of the inscription (6-26-36) coincides exactly with the production of the latter film.

Materials from Competitions: All-Union Students' Competition for Communal Apartment Building, [and] Leningrad Soviet Competition for Workers Apartment Building]

      Leningrad: Kubuch, 1931. 84 pp.: ill. 26x36 cm. In original publisher's card boards with cloth spine. Boards are rubbed with some soiling and small tears. Otherwise a very good clean copy. Very rare. The first and only edition. One of 5100 copies. This book is an incredible compilation of a unique experience which young student architects had during the 1920s. They were creating designs for this utopian future using mostly constructivist elements. Design sketches presented in this book are themselves unique and brilliant thanks to photomontage techniques. Constructivist styled book design. Communal apartment building (or house-commune) was considered a bright architectural and social phenomenon of 1920s-30s which embodied proletarian idea of socialization of everyday life - one of the manifestations of the constructivist era. The commune house was the sublime symbol of socialism in construction, the revolution of the everyday life. The first commune house of Soviet architecture was the experimental project conducted in 1920 by N. Ladovsky, the ideologue of rationalism, an architectural avant-garde current parallel to constructivism. The finest example of the commune house is without a doubt the Narkomfin building, apartment building for workers in the People's Commissariat of Finance, built in 1928-1930 in Moscow by architects M. Ginsburg and I. Milinis. In this edition house-communes called 'houses of reconstructive period' meaning from the 'bourgeois' house to the 'socialist' where family structure should be destroyed. All processes should be divided in such house: sleep, rest, eating, study and produce, raising children, cultural maintenance, hygienic part, etc. The Moscow Institute (VKhUTEIN) students presented a new vision of house-commune. Their projects showed the influence of the theoretical and practical views of I. Leonidov (1902-1959) who was one of the brightest Soviet avant-garde architects and lived in the house-commune. Overall 20 design projects including works by Khidekel, Rubanenko, Fromzel, Baranov, Rusakov, Gal'perin, Vernik, Gedike, E. Il'in, A. Nikolaev, Chemodanov, Popov, Chaiko, and others. Later real processes of the formation of everyday life testified that the family was a stable primary unit of the society. The house commune, based on the complete voluntary self-service of its members, turned out to be a utopia, since it did not take into account the real economic relations of people under socialism («from each according to ability, to each according to work») and as a structural unit of society did not develop. Worldcat locates copies at Columbia University Library, Getty Research Library, MIT Library, Van Pelt Library (University of Pensylvania).

        Arthur Mit Dem Langen Arm.

      Royal 8vo. Original light green cloth-backed white pictorial boards; pp. [20]; with coloured illustrations throughout, including 1 full-page; a very good copy indeed with foxing to spine cloth, slight fading to upper board and dusting to edges; scarce. First edition. Four short stories in rhyme for children by the renowned author of Emil and the Detectives (1929). Erich Kästner (1899-1974) was a left-wing German writer, poet and satirist who wrote for both children and adults. His books were despised by the Nazi elite and fell victim to the notorious book-burning in Berlin on May 10th, 1933, athough he decided to stay in the country and eventually did capitulate to censorship, which destroyed his career. Most of Kästner's children's books were illustrated by Walter Trier who, conversely, did escape Nazi oppression and emigrated to London in 1936 where he collaborated with the British authorities to produce anti-Nazi propaganda.

Overall 161 art pieces were traveling to such small and distant towns like Omsk, Groznyi, Smolensk, Tashkent, Kuzbass, Alma-Ata, Semipalatinsk, Magnitogorsk, Samarkand, etc. Monumental paintings were not part of traveling group though.

        Paris

      Paris: Jeanne Walter, 1931. Limited First edition. Softcover. vg. 1/1000. Large quarto (11 5/8" x 9"). Unpaginated. [6]pp (Text), [80]pp (Photographs), [2]pp (Colophon). Original glassine over photo-illustrated dust-jacket and blind wrappers, with blue lettering to spine and front cover. Book housed in a modern custom-made quarter black morocco over paper covered board chemise, with silver lettering to spine. Chemise housed in its matching paper covered slipcase. Introduction by Futurist Fernand Léger. "This revolutionary work which introduced Moï Ver to the world is a striking tour de force of photomontage utilizing Bauhaus style photography and design. Its 80 pages of avant-garde photomontages evoke a modern form of Paris through his visualizations. The method in which Moï Ver chose to present his material, in its kaleidoscopic layering and frenzied repetitiveness, emphasizes an experimental approach to picture-construction. In this sense, Paris remains the author's quintessential avant-garde book object. The jacket's front cover superimposes factory smokestacks upon a classic stone colonnade, thus setting up familiar juxtapositions: art and industry, antique and modern, beauty and banality. Moï Ver's Paris is a metropolis pulsating with fast-paced daily life, moving almost out of control. Cobblestone streets, bustling crowds, facades, railway tracks, bridges, the glittering river, and countless monuments shift and shatter here" (Andrew Roth: "The Book of 101 Books," pp. 70-71). It is interesting to note that Karl Lagerfeld's facsimile edition of this work features the photographs in a different order, which seems to indicate that the legendary designer's copy was at some point disbound, with pages mixed up, and rebound without following the original pagination. One of 1000 copies, not all published, of which this is No. 138.Dust-jacket professionally restored at head and tail of spine (3/8ths of an inch at top, and 1 inch at bottom, not affecting lettering). Minor and sporadic rubbing along edges. Front free endpaper slightly smudged. Front free endpaper and fly leaf tightly bound, but slightly loose at bottom. Minor age-toning along paper margin. Text in French. Modern chemise and slipcase in overall very good, glassine and dust-jacket in good+ to very good, wrappers and interior in very good condition.
