        Comedy American Style

      New York: Frederick A. Stokes. 1933. First. First edition. Tiny spot on the spine, a just about fine copy lacking the rare dustwrapper. Fauset, one of the first female African-American graduates of Cornell, was a very influential critic and the most prolific novelist of the Harlem Renaissance. While her formal, proper writing derived from her old-style Philadelphia upbringing, she was a champion of the radical black novelists. As editor of The Crisis she published and encouraged George Schuyler, Jean Toomer, Langston Hughes, Countee Cullen, and Claude McKay. The last of the author's four novels, her first, There Is Confusion, followed Toomer's Cane as the second book of the Harlem Renaissance. .

        Kunst und Religion der Mayavölker

      Verlag von Julius Springer 1933 - 3 volumes: 234+[2 ad] pages with 53 plates; 44 pages with figures and 24 plates; 52 pages with 73 plates (one foldout) and bibliography. Royal octavo (10" x6 3/4") bound in stiff boards with pictorial covers and dark brown lettering to spines and covers. First editions. Erwin Paul Dieseldorff was something of a renaissance man for the Alta Verapaz. Born in Hamburg, he emigrated to Guatemala at the age of twenty to join his uncle and cousin, who had established themselves as merchants and coffee planters some years before. Shortly after his arrival he volunteered to accompany a German cartographer who was mapping out the Verapaz, and while traipsing around its mountains and valleys he acquired an intimate knowledge of the lay of the land. The two Germans also explored caves and excavated Mayan burial sites, which sparked in Dieseldorff a lifelong interest in archaeology and ethnology. In addition to his business ventures (which came to include the largest department store in Coban), Dieseldorff was equally devoted to his intellectual pursuits. His excavations on his own and neighboring fincas yielded a number of polychrome vessels whose hieroglyphics he studied for many years, comparing them to features found in Mayan codices. As his interest in Mayan studies grew, he collected everything he could find that had been published on the subject of Mayan art, culture, and religion, and he journeyed to the major Mayan archaeological sites in Guatemala and Honduras to inspect them first hand. He published numerous papers on archaeology in scholarly journals, culminating in his three-volume Kunst und Religion de Mayavölker(Berlin 1926). In the later 20's and 30's he began analyzing the Mayan and Aztecan calendar systems, working out his own calculations and unorthodox theories, which he published in archaeological journals in Germany, Guatemala, and the United States. He came to be a respected researcher in Mayanist circles and his own extensive collection of Mayan artifacts now resides in the Museo Archaeologico Nacional in Guatemala City. Condition:Corners bumped, spine ends rubbed, lightly soiled else very good copies. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Mann mit Taube.

      - Original Radierung. 38 x 28 cm. Blattgröße. Helmut Leherbauer (* 14. Februar 1933 in Wien † 28. Juni 1997 ebenda), Künstlername "Maitre Leherb", war ein österreichischer Künstler und Mitbegründer der Wiener Schule des Phantastischen Realismus die dem Surrealismus nahe steht. Leherbauer studierte an der Akademie für angewandte Kunst in Wien und an der Stockholmer Akademie der Künste. 1955 wechselte Helmut Leherbauer wieder nach Wien an die Akademie der bildenden Künste . Er traf dort Albert Paris Gütersloh und wurde von ihm unterrichtet. A.P. Gütersloh gilt als Begründer der Wiener Schule des Phantastischen Realismus . Leherbauer fand somit Zugang zu diesem Kreis von Künstlern und veranstaltete zusammen mit anderen Vertretern dieser Kunstrichtung diverse Ausstellungen, beispielsweise mit Anton Lehmden , Rudolf Hausner und Wolfgang Hutter . In den Wiener Parkanlagen sind noch heute folgende Kunstwerke des "Maitre Leherb" zu finden: Wiener Prater : das Keramik-Reliefbild "Tschinellen-Fiffy" (in Riesenrad-Nähe) und das "Sonntagsgwand" (dem Praterstern zugewandt), beide aus 1959 Im Schulgarten-Kagran: das Mosaik "Blumengöttin Flora und Gärtnergott Vertumnus aus 1960 Im Volkspark-Laaerberg: die Keramikstele "Tag & Nacht" aus 1962 Am Kaffeehausberg im Donaupark: das Keramik-Reliefbild "Kaffeehausszene", sowie das Bodenmosaik "Die Vögel des Leherb" (ein gemeinsames Werk mit Prof. Hermann Bauch beide aus 1963 Dies aus Anlass der "Wiener Internationalen Gartenschau" - WIG 1964, wie der Donaupark eigentlich längere Zeit hieß. Das zentrale Motiv, das sich in vielen seiner Gemälde wiederfinden lässt, ist seine eigene Person oder die seiner Frau, der Malerin Lotte Profohs. Er war zeitlebens durch seine persönlichen Repräsentationsformen ein Wiener Societyliebling. Leherbauer nahm auch eine Schallplatte mit dem Titel "Autodafé eines Surrealisten" auf. Obwohl Leherbauer einer der Initiatoren und Gründer der "Wiener Schule des Phantastischen Realismus" war, wandte er sich später vom Stil anderer Mitbegründer wie Arik Brauer und Ernst Fuchs ab und immer mehr dem Surrealismus zu. In der letzten Phase seines Wirkens schuf er ein 360 Quadratmeter großes Fayence -Mosaik für den Neubau der Wiener Wirtschaftsuniversität , die 1982 eröffnet wurde. Er zog sich bei dieser Arbeit mit keramischem Staub schwere gesundheitliche Schäden zu. Maitre Leherb starb 1997 an einem Schlaganfall. Wikipedia freie Enzyklopädie. Die tadellos erhaltene Original Radierung links unten Nummeriert 230/300 und rechts unten Signiert. 0,000 gr.

        Bibliography Of The Cricket Works Of The Late F.s. Ashley-cooper

      Kidderminster: Priv., by the Author 1933 - F.S. Ashley-Cooper (1877-1932) is widely held to be the greatest authority on the history of cricket. He wrote, joint wrote or edited some 103 books and pamphlets on cricket. His collection of books and pictures &#150; some 4,000 in number &#150; was unrivalled at the time of his death. Not long after, under the guidance of fellow collector A.W. Shelton, it was acquired by the soft furnishings magnate, Sir Julien Cahn. Weston's bibliography is, by his own admission, probably incomplete. Notwithstanding, it is the fullest record we have of Ashley-Cooper's work. Small 8vo. [19]pp, interleaved. Portrait plate (of Ashley-Cooper). Original grey paper-covered boards, title in blue lettering to upper board. A fine copy. No.4 of a Limited Edition of 100 copies, signed by the author.

        Down and Out In Paris And London

      New York: Harper and Brothers, Publishers, 1933. Octavo, 292 pages. First American Edition. A fictionalized account of Orwell&#39;s time as a dishwasher in Paris and a tramp in London. The book was thrust into the food writing world when Anthony Bourdain declared it a favorite book and an inspiration for his Kitchen Confidential. An indulgent kitchen staff is nothing new, as Orwell notes, "the power of swallowing quarts of wine, and then sweating it out before it can do much damage, is one of the compensations of [this] life." Small bookplate to the undecorated side of the free front endpaper, otherwise very good. Lacking the scarce dust jacket, but a facsimile jacket us supplied, just for fun.
