        SAVE ME THE WALTZ

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1932. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good/Fair. First edition, first and only printing, with the "A" and the publisher's seal on the copyright page. Save Me the Waltz was written by Zelda Fitzgerald (1900-48) in six hectic weeks while recovering from a breakdown. The novel is intensely autobiographical, portraying a Southern belle's struggle to rise above being "a back-seat driver about life" and to earn respect for her own accomplishments - to establish herself independently of her husband. It is a forceful, truthful picture of a legendary marriage in a fabulous age, and one of the most shattering self-portraits of a woman ever committed to paper. Octavo. Original light green cloth binding, with blue titles. The spine is sun faded. In the excedingly scarce dust jacket, which is rather shelfworn and soiled, more so along the spine and folds, with some shallow chipping to the extremities. Bruccoli ZF-A1.1.

        The Odyssey of Homer. Translated by T.E. Lawrence with a three-page note by him at the end of the text

      (London), 1932. Rogers, Bruce. Quarto. Unpaginated. One of 530 copies, printed and published by Rogers, Sir Emery Walker, and Wilfred Merton. Illustrated with 26 decorations of Homeric figures printed in black on round backgrounds of gold. It was Rogers who, upon reading Seven Pillars of Wisdom, decided that T.E. Lawrence would be an ideal translator for a new edition of the Odyssey-a process that was expected to take two years and ended up taking four. The famous gold roundels-one of the signature features of this edition-were based on Rogers's drawings of figures from Greek vases, each one depicting a scene from Homer's epic. These illustrations famously required seven passes through the press. Even the ink was specially made from an early 19th-century formula, using an oily resinous balsam that resulted in "a depth of black without gloss" in the roundels, as well as lending the book a slightly spicy aroma. A BR30 title, this is one of Rogers' most beautiful books and, according to Joseph Blumenthal, "indisputably among the most beautiful books ever produced ... with only type and paper and ink, with consummate skill, Rogers created a masterpiece." Lower corners bumped and show minor rubbing, traces of drying to top and bottom of spine, else fine housed in original slipcase, which shows general wear and tape repair. Bookplate. (Warde 157; Blumenthal p.134; O'Brien A141).

"Socrates Spiro (1868-?) was an Egyptian of Syrian and Greek descent. He was educated at the American Mission College in Cairo. His first post was as a private secretary of the undersecretary of state for finance, and later he became director of Egyptian ports and lighthouses In 1907 Spiro went to work in Geneva as a lecturer of Arabic at the university there. He returned to Egypt in 1912, where he first worked for the Egyptian Gazette and then was appointed Arabic editor of the Egyptian Mail In 1932, he published a book titled The Moslem Pilgrimage. After that, all traces of Socrates Spiro seem to vanish, which is strange for a man who held such high public functions" (Bassioney, Al-Arabiyya, Volume 47, p. 3). Chapters cover the Egyptian official caravan, the Cairo-Mecca route, the Suez-Jeddah route, Mecca, Medina, and the Haifa-Medina railway. "My first authority is the late Mohammed Sadek Pasha, who was an officer on the staff of the Egyptian Army and visited the sacred towns more than once and embodied all the information he obtained at first hand in a book now out of print [Mash'al al-Mahmal, 1881] My second authority is Mohammed Labib Al-Batanuni Bey, who accompanied the ex-Khedive Abbas Pasha in 1909 to the Hedjaz, and subsequently published a record of this journey [al-Rihlah al-Hijaziyah, 1911]. My third authority is a number of newspapers articles relative [sic] to the officials who accompany the caravan and my fourth is that of men who made the journey The illustrations are principally drawn from the above two works, and from that of Ibrahim Rifat Pasha [Mir'at al-haramayn, 1924], the most complete on the subject" (Preface).

        Letter from Jose Raul Capablanca

      Havana: Self Published, 1932 3 page letter (6 1/4" x 5") written on one side on each sheet in J R Capablanca's hand to unknown recipient and signed on the last page.The letter discusses Capablanca's health and the cost of traveling and remuneration. but because of the cost he was regretfully turning down the offer to perform, possibly a simultaneous exhibition. But thanked him for allowing "Isabella" to stay a few day at his place and that he may seem after a tournament later in Los Angeles.Jose Raul Capablanca y Graupera was a Cuban chess player who was world chess champion from 1921 to 1927. A chess prodigy, he is considered by many as one of the greatest players of all time, widely renowned for his exceptional endgame skill and speed of play. After several unsuccessful attempts to arrange a match with the then world champion Emanuel Lasker, Capablanca finally won the title from Lasker in 1921. Capablanca was undefeated for eight years from 10 February 1916 to 21 March 1924, a period which included the world championship match with Lasker. Capablanca lost the title in 1927 to Alexander Alekhine, who had never beaten Capablanca before the match. Following unsuccessful attempts to arrange a return match over many years, relations between them became bitter. Capablanca continued his excellent tournament results in this period but withdrew from serious chess in 1931. He made a comeback in 1934, with some good results, but also showed symptoms of high blood pressure. He died in 1942 of "a cerebral hemorrhage provoked by hypertension".Condition:Some chips to edges, paper age toned, but is bearing up well even for the fragility else a good item of a scarce Capablanca letter.

        Umur-Kumurs : Poema no Rigas nesenas pagatnes (Umurkumurs : The poem about Rigas' recent past)

      Zelta grauds (Gold Grain), Riga 1932 - Latvian language. Enlarged format. Octavo 20 x 24 cm. Weight 160 gr. Wrappers, 52 pp., [10] pp. lithographic tables. The book is in Near Fine condition, without any visible defects, losses, remarks and stains. Some soft and small creases across cover corners, occasional minor foxing spots to the cover edges and on some sheets at the beginning of the book. Great modernist collaborative creation of writer and artist. Minimalist book cover design, 8 ink drawings (zincographies) and 10 amazing graphical plates (lithographies) by Niklavs Strunke, who received Culture Fund Prize on several occasions, among them in 1932 for his illustration of the poem "Umur-Kumurs". Poem's title consists of two German words "Hunger" and "Kummer" (Hunger and Sorrow). This is the poem about Rigas' recent past, which describes a pole-climbing contest at public festival which took place at the turn of the century. The festival was celebrated every autumn in memory of hunger and sorrow of siege warfare. A main hero, who was ascending a pole in front of a crowd falls from a height and dies. But actually this symbolist poem is a statement about the fate of most of the artists despised in life but appreciated only after death. Among Caks's friends were a lot of artists to whom he dedicated this poem - Janis Plase, Janis Liepins, Niklavs Strunke, Karlis Baltgailis, Aleksandrs Junkers and others. Aleksandrs Caks (1901-1950) was the first Latvian modernist writer and poet whose works are distinctly urban, compared to the usual depictions of country life or small villages in earlier Latvian literature. He created a new tradition, describing in free verse, with exaggerated images, the atmosphere of the suburbs. Caks published his first poetry book Sesi (Six) in 1928, dedicated to Riga and its life, which made him wildly popular. These poems included topics and characters previously not shown in Latvian poetry - the city night life, homeless people, prostitutes, poor suburbs, even the sewers in blockhouses. In his works, Caks shows his deep love for Riga as it is. Riga is not the only subject of his poems, though - he has also written romantic poetry and works dedicated to the Latvian riflemen. Caks also wrote some short stories, although they are generally not as well-known as his poems. His influence on a new generation of Latvian poets is greater than any other poet's. Niklavs Strunke (1894 – 1966) is one of the most original Latvian artists who was devoted to the modernist movements in Europe and at the same time studied the Latvian cultural heritage. He was active in a number of artistic fields – painting, graphic design, stage design. Strunke's creative work has been influenced by different styles, the main of them are – Cubism, Constructivism, Futurism, Suprematism, Primitivism and Italian Proto-Renaissance. Beginning with the second half of the 20th century these influencies are mainly connected with the stylization methods characteristic for Art Deco. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Brave New World.

      Chatto & Windus, London 1932 - First edition of the Huxley's masterpiece. Octavo, original blue cloth. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing and wear. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. After the success of his first three novels, Huxley abandoned the fictional milieu of literary London and directed his satire toward an imagined future. He admitted that the original idea of Brave New World was to challenge H.G. Wells' Utopian vision. The novel also marks Huxley's increasing disenchantment with the world, which was to result in his leaving England for California in 1937 in search of a more spiritual life. The book was immediately successful" (Parker & Kermode). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Odyssey of Homer. Translated by T.E. Lawrence with a three-page note by him at the end of the text

      (London) 1932 - Quarto. Unpaginated. One of 530 copies, printed and published by Rogers, Sir Emery Walker, and Wilfred Merton. Illustrated with 26 decorations of Homeric figures printed in black on round backgrounds of gold. It was Rogers who, upon reading Seven Pillars of Wisdom, decided that T.E. Lawrence would be an ideal translator for a new edition of the Odyssey-a process that was expected to take two years and ended up taking four. The famous gold roundels-one of the signature features of this edition-were based on Rogers's drawings of figures from Greek vases, each one depicting a scene from Homer's epic. These illustrations famously required seven passes through the press. Even the ink was specially made from an early 19th-century formula, using an oily resinous balsam that resulted in "a depth of black without gloss" in the roundels, as well as lending the book a slightly spicy aroma. A BR30 title, this is one of Rogers' most beautiful books and, according to Joseph Blumenthal, "indisputably among the most beautiful books ever produced . with only type and paper and ink, with consummate skill, Rogers created a masterpiece." Lower corners bumped and show minor rubbing, traces of drying to top and bottom of spine, else fine housed in original slipcase, which shows general wear and tape repair. Bookplate. (Warde 157; Blumenthal p.134; O'Brien A141).

        Pablo Picasso - L’Ouvre [Works] par Christian Zervos,' First editions of Vols 1-5 & 7-9

      Cahiers d'Art 1932 - 'Pablo Picasso par Christian Zervos,' known by many simply as ‘the Zervos,’ was prepared by Cahiers d’art founder Christian Zervos in direct collaboration with Picasso. The first volume was published in 1932 and another 32 volumes followed over the next four decades. It remains the most trusted reference to the works of Picasso and the complete set of 33 volumes was recently republished by Cahiers d’Art for a price per set of $25,000. For sale here are first editions of eight of the first nine volumes -- we are lacking volume 6. Volumes 1 and 2 are limited editions (537 & 700). The others have no stated limitation, but press runs were not large. Condition ranges from poor to good, with most volumes shaken and with varying degrees of damage to the spine. Despite damage to the covers and bindings, the plates themselves are fine overall with no tears or markings. These volumes are ex-libris the Stendahl Art Gallery, Los Angeles, where they were well-used working copies in the gallery’s reference library, hence the rough condition of the covers. Until its recent closure, the Stendahl Gallery was one of America's oldest continuously operating private art galleries. Art from the Stendahl collections found a home in The Louvre and many other major institutions throughout the world. Upon closing the gallery, the family donated a significant collection of photographs and documentation to the Getty Research Institute. Contact us for a detailed description of all eight volumes and additional photographs. Price for all 8 volumes: $1750 [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Nemzeti Szociálista. Nemzeti Szociálista Magyar Munkáspárt orsz. politikai hetilapja. Szerkeszti: Böszörményi Zoltán országos vezérelnök. [National Socialist. The Country-Wide Political Weekly Magazin Of the National Socialist Hungarian Workers' Party.]

      Árpád Oláh (Némethy és Tsai könyvnyomda), [Budapest] 1932 - Original, vintage poster. Printed in red and black. Illustrated with the emblem of the Party. Date from postmark. 317 × 472 mm. An original advertisement poster of the weekly magazine of an early Hungarian Nazi Party, illustrated with the Party's emblem, similar to the German Nazi Party's badge, a swastika combined with sword and eagle. The Nemzeti Szociálista Magyar Munkáspárt (National Socialist Hungarian Workers' Party) was one of the earliest Hungarian Nazi parties founded in 1930-1931 and led by Zoltán Böszörményi. Named after the National Socialist German Workers' Party and its first emblem was also designed after the Nazi's badge. It was used only for a short period, because the sign was banned in Hungary in 1933 September, thus it was changed to two scythes crossed and arranged to resemble the swastika, hence the informal name of the party also changed to Scythe-Cross Party. Folded. With small tears at foldings. Addressed in pen, stamped and postmarked on verso. Paper yellowed due to aging. Overall in fine condition. Original, vintage poster. Printed in red and black. Illustrated with the emblem of the Party. Date from postmark. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Odyssey of Homer.

      London: Printed in England [colophon:] Printed and published by Sir Emery Walker, Wilfred Merton and Bruce Rogers, 16 Clifford's Inn,, 1932. Quarto. Original black full morocco by W.H. Smith, gilt lettered spine, top edges gilt, untrimmed. With the slipcase. 26 woodcut roundels printed in gold and black (with some tissue guards). Light wear to slipcase, minor abrasions to binding, short split at head of front joint, pale offsetting from roundels to letterpress, skilful repair to paper flaw in blank margin of penultimate leaf of Book XXIV. An excellent copy, with the slipcase. First and limited edition of Lawrence's translation, 530 copies were printed. A remarkable association copy, inscribed to Sydney Everett by three of the four principal collaborators: Lawrence, whose inscription - as "TE Shaw", the name he used in the Tank Corps - is a simple signature at the end of the concluding Translator's Note; Bruce Rogers, "This copy to Sydney Everett With appreciation of his devotion to the making of this book, Bruce Rogers 1933", and Wilfred Merton (Sir Emery Walker's business partner), "To Sydney Everett, who with loving care distributed this book, Wilfred Merton 1933". The inscription of this copy presumably took place after the death, on 22 July 1933, of the other collaborator, Sir Emery Walker; the book was issued in autumn 1932. We have been unable to identify the highly-valued Sydney Everett. "Inspired by reading Seven Pillars of Wisdom, Bruce Rogers persuaded Lawrence to undertake a new translation of The Odyssey. Begun in 1928 and published in 1932, the translation was undertaken during Lawrence's free time while serving in the ranks. It was published in a beautiful edition … by Emery Walker, Wilfred Merton and Bruce Rogers" (O'Brien). Joseph Blumenthal described it as "among the most beautiful books ever produced" (Art of the Printed Book: 1455-1955). Lawrence was signally reluctant to sign this book - his name appears nowhere in print in its pages - and association copies of any description are notably rare.
