        The Farmer's Year: A Calendar of English Husbandry

      Longmans, Green and Co., New York 1933 - A Near Fine copy of the first American Edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original black cloth (upper corners bumped, modest rubbing to the spine ends and board corners with some tiny rubs through, light surface rubbing and a bit of marking to the cloth, tiny indent to the front board within the "G" of Leighton's name, tiny bend to the upper leading corner to the pages, lacking the exceedingly scarce slipcase -- but easily the nicest copy of the first American edition that we have seen). With both the text and illustrations by Clare Leighton (a renowned English/American artist, writer, and illustrator best known for her wood engravings), the book contains a dozen full black and white full-page illustrations as well as seven vignettes, a lovely letter block at the start of each chapter. Each pastedown and facing side of its adjoining free endpaper also are of Leighton's design. A highly-regarded artist, Leighton received an Award for greatest contribution to the culture of New England, New England Society of New York, New York, NY, USA (1954), an Honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts, Colby College, Waterville, ME, USA (1940), a First Prize and Logan Medal, International Engraving Exhibition, The Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL, USA (1930). In 1945 she was elected into the National Academy of Design as an Associate member and became a full Academician in 1949. Some of her original works are held by the Smithsonian, and a large number of her papers are held by Duke University. An unusually nice copy of this sought-after work.

        Pöörang : viies kogu luuletusi (The Turn : Fifth Collection of Poems)

      Loodus, Tartu 1933 - Estonian language. Octavo 14 x 21 cm. Weight 110 gr. Wrappers, 79 pp. The Book is in Near Fine condition without any visible defects, losses, remarks and stains. Slightly frayed cover corners, occasional light rubbing on the cover, damaged bottom edge of the spine; internally perfect. Author's inscription on the half-title: "Aleksander Antsonile sõpruses. Erni Hiir. 5.II.33." (To Aleksander Antson in friendship. Erni Hiir. 5.II.33). [Aleksander Antson was an Estonian expressionist and political writer]. In the current poetry collection consisting of five cycles "the turn" is emerging since the beginning and becomes clearly evident in the last cycle, showing right-wing expression, which has led to the distancing from the critical realism. "In my work I have tried to melt away from the realism, romanticism, classicism, and to ensure the mixture of truth-seeking, working life and the pathos." Hiir's poetry from this period descriptive, rhetoric, often with use of intentionally artificial language, influenced by the ideology of Estonian nationalism raised during the severest years of the economic crisis of 1930s, and disseminated by the authoritarian power of the time. Nationalist ideologies in the poetry are linked with the patriotic motives. According to critics, a former ultra-modernist and the most influential Estonian futurist poet, sometimes incisive in his experimentation with formal extremes, Erni Hiir (1900-1989) lost what poetry he had when he yielded to the style prescribed by the philosophy of "social demand”, tended to degenerate into mere anti-capitalistic propaganda. Book's cover design and five full-page chapter divider woodcuts are created by famous graphic artist Hando Mugasto (1907–1937). During the years 1924–1933 he studied at Pallas under Ado Vabbe, and in 1935–1937 worked as a graphic art tutor there. His first works (linocuts) of the early period were of cubism and impressionist style. Later he gained recognition for xylographs, book-plates, posters, still life's.

Many of the photos show trips to Colorado with images of Pike's Peak, hiking, and snow capped mountains. One caption from a hike reads, "the view from Broadmore Hill, South of Cheyenne School." Other views are from Austin Bluff and Stage Road. The natural beauty of Colorado Spring's is seen throughout these photos with images of trees, lakes, creeks, and the various mountain roads.

There are also photos of the family farm including workers and farm animals and views of various crops. Additionally there are portrait style images of a young woman and her friend posing around the farm. Others show the elderly matriarch of the family and her husband with grandchildren and animals.

The family continued to visit Colorado annually through 1933 often enjoying the Colorado Springs area. A group of photos towards the end of the album have been combined to create a panoramic photo of the mountain ranges with captions labeling each peak. Besides farm work members of the family were also involved in medical professions, (a professional portrait photo of a woman in a full nurse uniform is also seen here), and the military, a photo of two navy men is also present.An extensive account of a farm family in the 1920s and 30s and their trips to Colorado.

Spine rolled, darkened and worn at foot, small smudges to front board, foxing to edges of text block. A very good copy in a first issue jacket from another copy with a few short closed-tears which are tape-repaired on the verso. First edition, first impression. The dedication copy, inscribed by the author below the printed dedication "and I may very well add, in gratitude for all the trouble he took to prevent me from making too great a fool of myself in the writing of this book, from his old pal, J. D. Beresford. 19a, Eaton Place, Brighton, 6th November. 1933." Beresford's inscription reflects one facet of his character mentioned by ODNB: "He was intensely self-conscious, a quality he believed hampered his writing". H. H. Bashford (1880-1961) was Honorary Physician to George VI and best known as a writer of satirical novels, particularly Augustus Carp, Esq., By Himself: Being the Autobiography of a Really Good Man (1924), described by Anthony Burgess as "one of the great comic novels of the twentieth century".

        Winner Take Nothing

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1933. First edition of Hemingway's third collection of short stories. Octavo, original black cloth. Fine in a very good dust jacket with some rubbing and wear. Written when Hemingway was at the height of his creative powers, the stories in Winner Take Nothing glow with the mark of his unique talent. Hunters, wives, old men of wisdom, waiters, fighters, women loved, women lost: they are all here, living on the raw edge, making love, facing the inevitable reality of death. The characters, the dialogue, the settings, the remarkable insight could have come only from Hemingway's imagination. As an introduction to his work, or as an overview of the themes he developed at greater length in his novels, it is a stunningly successful collection.

Premier tirage des 20 pointes sèches libres attribuées à Berthommé de Saint-André, imprimées en couleurs. Tirage unique à 308 exemplaires. Celui-ci, 1 des 280 exemplaires sur grand vélin d'Arches. Dutel indique que cette édition a paru en janvier 1934, probablement par les soins du libraire Robert Télin. Il y a outre les 20 cuivres attribués à Berthommé de Saint-André, 8 bandeaux au trait imprimés en noir, par le même artiste. Le texte est imprimé en vert et noir. Les quatrains érotiques de Pierre Louÿs furent publiés pour la première fois en 1927, après la mort de l'auteur. Le nom énigmatique renvoie au magistrat et poète toulousain Guy du Faur de Pibrac (1529-1584), auteur d'un recueil de quatrains moralisateurs. Comme avec le Manuel de civilité pour les petites filles à l'usage des maisons d'éducation, Louÿs détourne un genre ennuyeux et moralisateur en une fantaisie érotique, tout en gardant la stricte organisation formelle de son modèle. Références : Dutel, Bibliographie des ouvrages érotiques publiés clandestinement en français entre 1920 et 1970, n°2198* ; Pia, 1209. Bel exemplaire de ce très joli clandestin artistique peu courant, d'autant plus finement relié comme ici. Honegger fut notamment le relieur de Gérard Nordmann pour sa bibliothèque érotique. ‎ [Attributes: Hard Cover]
