        Silversmithing. Its Principles & Practice in Small Workshops

      Ditchling Common: St. Dominic's Press, 1933. Apparently Brocard Sewell's copy with part of a letter from him referring to this book and Gill "going off the rails. With an introduction by Philip Hagreen. Illustrated with 20 wood engrvings by Philip Hagreen, one repeated on upper board. Pp. (x), 40. One of 500 copies. 8vo., original black cloth backed printed boards, slightly bending and little faded, lower cover a little grubby, otherwise good. Inserted loose is part, cut off at the top, of a fascinating letter on Pepler & Sewell headed notepaper written by Brocard Sewell. It is to Pepler and includes gossip about this book - how Gill refused to do the introduction "only formal reasons given" and Hagreen doing it in his place. He also notes that "Gill seems to be going off the rails badly. His latest is to be taken on by Whiteley's as organizer of a department for the sale of genuine works of art ot the proletariat and bourgeoisie...nothing over 3 guineas!

        Les Amours Pastorales de Daphnis & Chloe

      Chelsea: Ashendene Press, 1933. With 8 pages from the first and disastrous Japanese vellum printing. Translated by J. Amyot, edited and corrected by Paul-Louis Courier. 29 wood engravings by Gwen Raverat. One of 290 copies on Batchelor handmade paper, there were 20 copies printed on vellum. Initials hand drawn in blue by Graily Hewitt and his assistants. Printed in Ptolemy type with marginal notes in red. 4to., original vellum backed green paper covered boards with stamp designed by Raverat in gilt on upper cover, in the original patterned paper covered slipcase (worn at extremities), uncut. Very slight bumping to the corners, otherwise an extremely good copy. Chelsea, Ashendene Press. 1933. Together with 8 pages from the printing on Japanese vellum, rescued from the offset sheets. These leaves include 2 Raverat illustrations and pages 1-2, 7-8, 155-6 & 161-2. The edition on paper was Hornby's second attempt at this work, the first being printed on Japanese vellum. Due to the ink's very slow drying on the Japanese paper, the sheets were packed before they were ready, leading to very bad offset on most of them. Hornby declared that he destroyed all except 10 copies of this edition. At the second attempt he abandoned the Japanese paper in favour of the easier Batchelor paper used here. A very good copy a handsomely illustrated Ashendene. It is a complete departure from the previous books and a triumph, forming a fitting end to the Press, this being the last work, apart from the bibliography, to be printed there. With the booklabel of Clarence B. Hanson

        Eigenhändiger Brief m. U. „Else Lasker Schüler".

      Berlin, [März 1933] - 3 Einzelblätter folio, vier Seiten beschrieben. Langer Brief an Elisabeth Stückgold in Arlesheim, die sie inständig um Unterstützung für zwei kleine Mädchen und deren Mutter bittet; Lasker-Schüler selber kann nichts mehr geben, da all ihr Geld bereits in den Erhalt der kleinen Familie geflossen sei. Der Brief ist kurz nach der Machtergreifung durch Hitler geschrieben. „Liebe Fee | Ich glaube wenn Sie selbst sehen würden wie wir darben, Sie würden nicht erst diesen Brief zu lesen brauchen. Nie fragten Sie, wie es mir geht und eine tiefe Enttäuschung pflanzten Sie gerade in mein Herz. Ich habe die letzten zwei Jahre nichts getan wie alles was ich eben erringen konnte, geteilt. Die Not – zum Weinen unter uns Künstlern. Aber für mich will ich nichts – ich bin so gewöhnt der Askese, aber, Fee, denken Sie zwei junge Mädchen, deren Mutter so gut zu mir war und zu unserem Päulchen – verhungern. Sie sind so dünn geworden, ich weiss, sie könnten nichts mehr in dem Zustand aushalten. Stellungen keine zu haben momentan, ich habe nun zwei Jahre ihnen gegeben, leider so wenig, daß ich nichts behielt, wie 15-25 Pfg zu essen behielt täglich. Aber das ist nicht schlimm, es ist gewiss Gottes Wille und man muß sich fügen – nicht aus Schwäche, aus Stärke. Glauben sie mir, mich hat es einsichtig gemacht. Ich habe auch immer meinen früheren Mädchen der Hedwig die kleine Miete gezahlt für ihre Treue. – noch immer mit Mühe. Aber seit einer Woche können sie meine Lyrik nicht mehr, begreiflicherweise – drucken. Mietschulden über 10 Wochen. Die wird ich schon wo vielleicht besorgen. Der Besitzer ein Elbersfelder [Einschub unter der Zeile: meine Heimat]. Ich würde für mich nichts mehr annehmen, aber ich bitte Sie, Fee, für die beiden kleinen armen lieben Mädchen eines Engels. Wenn Sie mal traurig sind – denken Sie dann daran, daß Sie so Inniggutes getan haben, wenn Sie es tun? Die beiden können dann wieder nach ihrer Heimat mit ihrem alten Vater und dort in Süddeutschland ein Kleingeschäft übernehmen. Das würde also die Reisekosten und kleinen Umzug und erste Wochen: Leben. –Mein Schauspiel musste verlegt werden –gewiss für lange. Ich weinte, denn ich dachte, ich hätte dann nach Palästina reisen können, Fee [ ]" - Nachtrag auf der Rückseite: „Vielleicht wissen Sie Menschen, die mir Indianerbilder bestellen oder Negerbilder, oder Buch Theben kaufen? Sie werden selber gewiss sehr angegangen. Ich kann nicht mehr denken. Hier würden Sie niemand erkennen von uns Dichtern so abgemagert.Bitte Brief nur für Sie." - Elisabeth von Veress (1888-1961) war in erster Ehe mit dem polnischen Maler Stanislas Stückgold (1868-1933) verheiratet, nach Stückgolds Tod heiratete sie den Schriftsteller und Anthroposophen Albert Steffen (1884-1963); seit 1920 lebte sie in Dornach.

(1775-1799).- Ludwig von Pastor, Freiherr von Camperfelden (1854 - 1928), katholischer Historiker und Geschichtsschreiber der Päpste, österreichischer Diplomat. 1908 wurde Pastor durch Franz Joseph I. in den Adelsstand erhoben. Pastor wollte der Darstellung Leopold von Rankes, der 1834?36 sein Werk Die römischen Päpste in den letzten vier Jahrhunderten veröffentlicht hatte, eine Darstellung aus katholischer Sicht entgegenstellen. Er konnte bisher unzugängliches vatikanisches Quellenmaterial verwerten, da er einen umfassenden Zugriff auf die Bestände des vatikanischen Geheimarchivs hatte, welches offiziell erst 1883 durch Erlass von Leo XIII. vollständig geöffnet wurde. Pastors Papstgeschichte zeichnet sich durch ihre Detailfülle aus und wird daher noch heute zitiert. 18000 gr. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Looking Forward...

      New York: John Day Co. 1933. EXTREMELY RARE ADVANCE REVIEW COPY OF THE FIRST EDITION, ONE OF 130 RECALLED ADVANCE COPIES, with manuscript corrections by the publisher on pages 36, 158 and 269 and canceled leaf 141/142. The publisher (John Day) bound 130 advance copies in wrappers and sent them out to reviewers on March 10, 1933. One copy was received at the White House and several significant errors were discovered. The publisher acquiesced to the President and sent telegrams to each of the reviewers recalling the books. Only about 10 were not sent back. The remaining 120, as here, were re-issued with manuscript deletions and an inserted leaf.?Published in March 1933, and rapidly proceeding to four printings before the end of the month, [Looking Forward] consisted of a compilation of articles and speeches which Roosevelt had given before taking office as President. Together they amounted to a political philosophy which Roosevelt wished to offer to the American public at the start of his administration. It offered hope for the future and affirmed the central role of government in improving the quality of ordinary people's lives. Through government, he argued, the socio-economic system could be rebuilt to ensure that a great depression would never again blight the life of the nation"In Looking Forward [Roosevelt] remained an American nationalist fervently believing in the nation's exceptional qualities: 'America is new. It is in the process of change and development. It has the great potentialities of youth?? (Bennett, Roosevelt?s Peacetime Administrations).New York: John Day Co., 1933. Octavo, original paper wrappers; custom box. Spine cracked, but holding; page 141, the cancelled leaf, detached (as often) - it may never have been properly bound; small tear to corner of rear wrapper. RARE. Very Good....

        The American Bar Guide, Eat, Drink and be Merry But be Temperate in All Things

      N.p.: N.p., 1933. Octavo, [6], 83, [3] pages. Styled second edition, per the title page, which states that the First Edition was published in 1885. We're holding out judgment on this, as we continue to see no evidence that the first existed. Published at the end of Prohibition, the author states that "The art of mixing drinks has been lost, as it were, and the man of today will, without the use of a proper guide, experience difficulty in preparing a drink that at one time was much sought after by those who were patrons of the best hotels and clubs throughout the country". Green cloth binding with brown lettering on the front, a small vignette of a mint julep glass in white and brown, yellow endpapers and text pages, advertisements by The Libbey Glass Manufacturing Co. at both the front and rear, two advertisements by the author's company (R.C. Miller & Son, Oakland, California), one on the verso of the title page for "Pop-pi-ya Wine" and one on page 70 for "Calax" ("For Health - Eat [Fruit]"), Table of Contents at the rear followed by several blank pages headed "Memorandum of New Recipes". Pagination: (i-vi), 1-83, 3 pp. of ads. Overall in near fine condition, with a strong, square text block, solid hinges, straight corners with a minimum of rubbing, the interior is clean and bright, and it is entirely free of prior owner markings; a bit of rubbing to the head and tail of the spine and a small amount of very light soiling to the boards, else fine. We are aware of a very few copies of this work in private collections, but none in institutional collections. Rare. [OCLC locates no copies, either of this printing, or of the supposed first edition of 1885; not in Noling, Beverage Literature].

Berlin: Neuer Deutscher Verlag, 1933. |~||~||~||~||~| From 1930 to 1938 Heartfield provided photomontages that were published in the Arbeiter-Illustrierte Zeitung. Many of these astonishing images are masterpieces of the art of caricature, and resulted in Heartfield having to flee for his life. This issue has the photomontage depicting three winged soldiers in gas masks and with the captions "Hitler tells fairy tales. The Third reich is a pacifist reich.

        Les Amours Pastorales de Daphnis & Chloe

      Chelsea: Ashendene Press, 1933. Translated by J. Amyot, edited and corrected by Paul-Louis Courier. 29 wood engravings by Gwen Raverat. One of 290 copies on Batchelor handmade paper, there were 20 copies printed on vellum. Initials hand drawn in blue by Graily Hewitt and his assistants. Printed in Ptolemy type with marginal notes in red. 4to., original vellum backed green paper covered boards with stamp designed by Raverat in gilt on upper cover, in the original patterned paper covered slipcase (worn at extremities), uncut. Very slight darkening to edge of boards, otherwise extremely good. The edition on paper was Hornby's second attempt at this work, the first being printed on Japanese vellum. Due to the ink's very slow drying on the Japanese paper, the sheets were packed before they were ready, leading to very bad offset on most of them. Hornby declared that he destroyed all except 10 copies of this edition. At the second attempt he abandoned the Japanese paper in favour of the easier Batchelor paper used here. A very good copy a handsomely illustrated Ashendene. It is a complete departure from the previous books and a triumph, forming a fitting end to the Press, this being the last work, apart from the bibliography, to be printed there.

      Paris: Librairie Rene Colas, 1933. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. Near Fine. Two volumes (COMPLETE) bound in one. [viii] pp., 1412 cols., colonne 1412 (numeraz. continuata), 70 pp. (Table methodique) + iv pp. (Index to the Table). Bouond for Martin Breslauer in contemporary German maroon half calf over maroon cloth, all original wrappers bound in (spine sunned and faded to chestnut brown), internally FINE. Beautiful Copy of the First Edition, limited to 1000 numbered copies (this one being No. 849). The still-indispensable, virtually comprehensive repertoire for the understanding and study of the Costume from antiquity to the 20th-century, including civil, military, and religious costume, clothing and fashion. While the work is principally European in scope, there is significant coverage given to other parts of the world. Approximately 3,121 work are meticulously described, with full collations and plate counts. The work is arranged alphabetically according to author (or if anonymous by title). So extensive is the work that there is even an Index to the Index (sic!). That this massive work was created by the heroic efforts of a single individual is amazing. -- Our copy was bound for Martin Breslauer, of Berlin, who was at that time justly considered to one of the greatest European booksellers. Breslauer was ruined by Nazi tax-collectors and was forced to flee with his family to London, where as the result of a Nazi bombing campaign he died of shock. -- REFERENCE: Besterman, p. 1505.
