        Autograph letter signed to "Grace, Lawrence, Margot" (Frieda, 1879-1956, wife of the author D. H. Lawrence)

      1932 - (Grace Rogers, the artist) saying that they had written her "such an enchanting trinity of a letter, thank you very much - It pleased me so much that I dashed into Florence & bought some of the paper, that Lawrence and I bought in the past, it may come in useful. Well, I know you will rejoice with me, no operation was necessary so I am a fraud, very glad to be one - I am quite alone & realised how alone one is these days. Orioli & Douglas I think got scared, thinking they might have a really sick woman on their hands, so they went away, but Giglioli the doctor is awfully good. The sun is gorgeous & I wish you could all appear here & I'd show you all the lovely places, one day you must - you sound so jolly and busy - soon I'll come back, I'll let you know when . I feel fit & wont [sic] to win . Medley comes here on the first to take Orioli's & Douglas evidence .", 2 sides 4to., Pensione Bal[l]estri, Firenze, no date circa end of 1931 or beginning of somewhat stained and lacking the bottom corners without loss of text In 1919, while Frieda went first to see her relatives in Germany, Lawrence went to Italy, arriving in Florence on the 19th November. He stayed at the Pensione Balestri till 9th December 1919 and later recommended it to his friends. He also contacted the writer Norman Douglas, who from 1920 to 1937 lived with the Florentine publisher Giuseppe ('Pino') Orioli. Douglas and Lawrence became firm friends, later falling out and reconciling. At the time of this letter, Charles Douglas Medley, 1870-1963, the London solicitor, was acting for Frieda over the probate of Lawrence's will. On the letter, at the head, she has written, upside down, "I don't think I'd like the Pepys spinet, it might be spiteful". Frieda came to London for the probate hearing in January 1932 and wrote to Grace, inviting her to tea at her hotel, and bringing a scarf for her and for her daughter Margot {later Margot Sharman). Grace was a friend of John Middleton Murry, and at the latter's Adelphi Centre Summer School in Essex, in August 1936, gave a talk on 'Society and the Family'.

        [Op. 22]. Quartett für Geige, Klarinette, Tenorsaxophon und Klavier op. 22 Partitur. [Full score]

      Wien... Leipzig: Universal-Edition [PN U.E. 10.050], 1932. Small folio. Original publisher's. Printed note "WEAG [Waldheim-Eberle AG)] 1930" to lower right corner of last page of music. Publisher's catalogue "Werke von Anton Webern," numbered "123" and dated "VII. [July] 1932." to verso of lower wrapper. A presentation copy, with a signed autograph inscription from the composer to title in black ink: "Dr. David Bach herzlichs überreicht von seinem Webern Nov. 1932." From the collection of the noted pianist, teacher and collector Jacob Lateiner (1928-2010), with a note laid in from the distinguished music antiquarian Albi Rosenthal (1914-2004): "for Jacob - as a souvenir of his first (and frustrating) visit to Otto Haas - Albi, London, 12 May 1967." Wrappers slightly worn and soiled. First Edition. Moldenhauer pp. 714-15. "Alban Berg repeatedly assured the composer of his special admiration for this work. On 19 August 1932 he wrote: 'This Quartet is a miracle. What amazes me above all is its originality...' Schoenberg was equally impressed. On receipt of the printed score he thanked Webern for the 'fabulous piece.' Today theorists recognize the Quartet as a masterpiece of formal construction." Moldenhauser pp. 426-27. Dr. David Josef Bach (1874-1947), an important figure in Viennese cultural life in the first quarter of the 20th century, was a significant patron of the arts, an academic, and a writer who championed the dissemination of the arts to the masses. Many important musical and visual artists were indebted to his patronage and support, including Webern, Schoenberg (who wrote an atonal birthday canon of 21 measures for him in 1934) and Oskar Kokoscha (who executed a portrait of him). "As a boy, Bach was a close friend of the young Arnold Schoenberg, who later named him as one of the three friends (the other two were Oskar Adler and Alexander von Zemlinsky) who greatly influenced him in his youthful explorations of music and literature... An active socialist dedicated to making the arts accessible to the working classes, it was D.J. Bach who instituted the Arbeiter-Symphonie-Konzerte ('Workers' Symphony Concerts') in Vienna in 1905. His wide-ranging activities earned him the hostility of right-wing groups, who denounced his artistic programme as part of a 'Jewish conspiracy' to undermine traditional Austrian culture. Such accusations were all the more vehement because D.J. Bach was also one of the earliest members of the Vienna Psychoanalytical Association which met under the aegis of Sigmund Freud and whose members were mostly Jewish... Music was, and remained, his central focus, and it was he who founded the amateur Vienna Singverein ('Vienna Choral Society') in 1919. This organisation, together with the Arbeiter-Symphonie-Konzerte and the 'Workers' Music Conservatoire', flourished until all were disbanded upon the new fascist government's outlawing of the Social Democratic Party and imposition of an authoritarian constitution in 1934. Anton Webern was active as a conductor of all musical organisations, and developed a close and enduring friendship with D.J. Bach..." Wikipedia.

        Devil's Highway, The

      New York D. Appleton 1932 First Printing, with the number (1) in parenthesis on the final page. 8vo; [6], 336pp. Publisher's crimson cloth, the spine and upper cover lettered in gilt; in the original illustrated dust jacket priced at $2.00. A Near Fine or better copy, very lightly rubbed and dust-soiled; in a just about Fine, lightly edge-worn jacket. Near Fine+ Little read today, the novels of Harold Bell Wright outsold those of every other American writer during the first quarter of the twentieth century. Newspapers of the day claimed Wright was the first author to write a novel that reached a million sales, and the statement cannot be far wrong. (The Devil's Highway, on the other hand, sold very few copies, making it today one of the most difficult of Wright's titles to obtain, in any condition.) John Lebar was the pen name of Wright's oldest son, Gilbert Munger Wright. In the Devil's Highway, they launched a scathing attack on "scientism," the belief that, in due coarse, all human misery will be solved by science. As such, the book can be seen as an attack on Nazism, Fascism and Communism, all then taking root, and more broadly on any effort to displace old-fashioned values with modern, scientific ideas. Interestingly, Ronald Reagan was one of Wright's most devoted followers. Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

Image size: 8 x 7 1/2 inches: 204 x 191 mm.Published as the black & white illustration on page 74 of Hans Andersen's Fairy Tales Illustrated by Arthur Rackham, [London, 1932]."And when little Gerda had been warmed, and had had something to eat and drink, the Lapp woman wrote a few words on a dried stockfish, bidding Gerda to take good care of it, tied her on the reindeer again, and away they went. Flash! Flash! it went up in the sky. All night long burned the beautiful blue Northern Lights"In this marvelous watercolor, Gerda and the Lapp woman are sitting in the little hut which has vegetables hanging from the low wooden beams. Gerda is dressed in a pretty blue and white dotted dress, and is sitting with a bowl and spoon on her lap. She is looking at the Lapp woman who is holding the dried stockfish, writing on it with a quill. The Lapp woman is dressed in a red top, blue skirt and red and blue striped headscarf, and is wearing big round glasses on her long nose. The Lapp woman with her wizened hands and feet are the focal point of the picture, the whole scene giving the impression of warmth and intimacy between the little girl and the Lapp woman.This fine watercolor appeared in the book on page 74 as a black and white drawing. As was often the case, Arthur Rackham has added background and full watercolor to the image in order to enhance its salability.

      New York: [Will A. Kistler Company] for E. Weyhe, 1932. A fine presentation copy of the limited edition, number 48 of 550 copies, printed on Artisan enamel paper by Champion Paper, photographic reproductions by the Los Angeles Engraving company, binding by Earle A. Gray. Light toning and wear to binding, some pale foxing as often, lacks original slicpase but with modern cloth slipcase. Folio. Foreword by Charles Sheeler, Appreciation by Lincoln Steffens, Prophecy by Arthur Miller, Estimate by Jean Charlot. 12pp. text, 39 photographic plates. Original printed paper-backed black boards. A fine presentation copy, inscribed by Weston to Lewis Milestone on the epigraph leaf facing the title. Milestone (1890-1980) is renowned for his direction of 'Two Arabian Knights' (1927) and 'All Quiet on the Western Front' (1930) -- both of which received Academy Awards for Best Director. Milestone apparently re-gifted the book, as the half-title bears his inscription "To the Roberts, Milly." A fine association, linking Weston (who early in his career worked in Hollywood doing stills for films) to the celebrated director Lewis Milestone.

        Picture Map of China. ????

      New York. Friendship Press. 1932. Wall-sized pictorial map, 37 1/4 x 48 1/2 inches on sheet 38 1/4 x 49 3/4 inches (97.5 x 126 cm), originally folded, now archivally mounted on linen. Evidence of some minor chipping to folds, now minimsed. Color pencil additions to the map outlining two regions. A good example of the scarce 1932 pictorial map of China by Frank Randolph Southard published by Friendship Press, the publishing arm of the National Council of Churches in New York. The map was designed as a teaching tool in classrooms and in this vein the added color on the copy offered here delineates a section of northeast China and a large swath of western China. The map is on a scale of 1:16,000,000. The outside border of the map shows various Chinese symbols such as the yinyang, the wheel of law, the pearl, long life etc. The inner border shows scenes of life in China: at home, at work, at school, in the street. The map itself is quite schematic, showing elevation pictorially, rivers, major cities. Listed in WorldCat at only three libraries, the scarcity of this map is no doubt due to its size and its practical application. A handsome map with much interesting commentary on the Western view of China in the years before World War II.

        John Dryden: The Poet, The Dramatist, The Critic

      Terence & Elsa Holliday, New Yorkk 1932 - Good limited edition cloth SIGNED by T.S. Eliot with gilt lettering on spine and marbled boards. No DJ. This is #108 of 110 copies. Eliot's signature appears at the bottom of the edition number page just before the title page. The spine is straight and tight, but the pages show age toning and light smudging throughout. Some of this may be the result of exposure to moisture, but all are straight and legible. The frontispiece portrait of Dryden, done in red ink, is still in good shape but the red ink has bled through the page a bit. Does not affect the signature. See photos please. There is a 1/2 inch abrasion to the marbling pattern on the back cover. 68 pages. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Miss Zilphia Gant

      Dallas Book Club of Texas 1932 First Edition, only printing (never reprinted in the United States until it appeared in Uncollected Short Stories of William Faulkner, in 1979). Preface by Henry Nash Smith. 8vo: xii,29,[2]pp, no. 189 of 300 numbered copies. Original reddish-brown gilt-ruled and -lettered cloth, fore- and bottom edges untrimmed. Very light wear to spine tips, else clean, tight, bright and unmarked; about Fine (and apparently unread), wanting the original glassine dust jacket. Petersen A12.1 Fine- ¶ Probably written in 1929, three years before publication by the Book Club of Texas in this special edition of three hundred copies. The short story centers on development of the title character whose mother raises her as a virtual prisoner. "Though it is crude in its handling of sexual imagery and suffers from a number of other technical problems that betray it as an early story, it does create two vivid characters. And of more importance, it reveals the author grappling with a theme that will be developed fully in some of his greatest stories and novels: the warping, destructive impact upon the psyche of the repression of those drives that connect the human being to the world of nature. . . . The narrative techniques of 'Miss Zilphia Gant' also show Faulkner surely, if falteringly, moving toward this techniques that will make his Jefferson stories and novels masterpieces." (Volpe, A Reader's Guide to William Faulkner: The Short Stories) N. B.

        S.S. Manhattan arrives in New York Harbor

      - FAIRCHILD AERIAL SURVEYS, S.S. Manhattan arrives in New York Harbor, undated (1932). 15x19.5 inches or 38x50cm, gelatin silver print, framed under glass on its original mount, Fairchild credit in the negative, labeled on the mount. The background provides a beautifully clear view of the lower Manhattan skyline, with the long-gone aquarium in Battery Park at right center (the round building). The ship was launched in 1931, at the outset of the Depression, and was considered an expensive gamble on the part of its owner, United States Lines. As the label says, at the time of their construction, the Manhattan and its sister ship, the Washington, were the largest liners ever built in the U.S. According to Wikipedia, the Manhattan served trans-Atlantic routes and during World War II was a troop ship, being scrapped after the war. Condition of this print: A few areas of foxing in the sky, faint silvering to the dark areas around the hull, overall very good.

        DAILY RECORD -- FORE RIVER PLANT. Stanley S. Hall. [Bethlehem Steel Shipyard Surveyor's Log, June 1 - December 13, 1932]

      [Boston] 1932 - 20 pp of manuscript text + 132 unused pp. Folio. 14" x 8-1/2" A highly detailed log maintained by ship surveyor Stanley S. Hall at Bethlehem Steel's Fore River plant during the latter half of 1932. Hall's notes include precise information about tests performed on the ships to which he was assigned, visits from superiors and outside inspectors, trips away from the shipyard (to Sampsons Dry Docks, Atlantic Works, the Boston office, a pipe shop, a blacksmith's shop, etc.), days off (and days spent waiting around for work), and more.A typical entry, dated Sept. 27, reads: "On 1447 tested and passed all (6) boilers in for'd fireroom to 600# pressure, this included main boilers, feed lines and superbeaters. U.S. Local Inspectors were present, Mr. Hicken and Capt. Story. Tested and passed one section of steam piping S-200-47 to 1000#. Went over ship with Mr. Harris. Called Builders attention to welding above decks. Requested Builders drive one rivet Boat dk stringer at the side thru coarsing, one missing down stern Boat dk."Hull #1447, the primary ship on which Hall worked, was the S.S. Lurline, a 631' passenger liner and the last of four Matson luxury liners built for runs from the West Coast to Hawaii and Australasia. In 1934 Lurline carried Amelia Earhart and her Lockheed Vega to Honolulu prior to her famous Honolulu - Oakland flight, and during WWII served as a troop transport ship; following the war it again became one of the top luxury cruise liners in the Pacific.Other ships Hall mentions and/or worked on include: Hull 1446, the United Steamship Co.'s freighter Veragua; the President Van Buren; the Susan V. Luckenbach; the San Bruno; the S.S. San Blas; the Cities Service No. 4; United Mail ship #747; and others.A comprehensive, Depression-era record of one surveyor's daily work at one of the biggest shipyards in the US.
