        Sense & Sensibility [A Novel] with Bonus 'FDC' Stamps

      JM Dent & Sons Ltd and EP Dutton & Co, London 1933 - Introduction by Emile Leguois [himself an author] - Illustrated by Maximilien Vox. - Maximilien Vox on Jane Austen : ¿And by my treatment of the pictures I have tried to attune myself to an art which never stresses, records only the essential, draws rather than paints: an art which aims at grace and rhythm rather than at intensity of expression.¿ - Grey cloth with a blue decoration to the boards. Boards have darkened with age and handling. Tightly bound to the inner page block. General soiling. Decorative endpages. Old label to front endpage [signifies a school prize]. The story consists of 322 pages and apart from occasional foxing and browning, the pages are all clean and tightly bound. The story is accompanied by eight sepia line drawings enhanced with delicate pastel watercolours representing significant scenes from the novel chosen by the artist, as well as a few small black and white vingettes. By 1933, the Art Deco movement that had originated in Paris was in full swing, inspiring Monsieur Vox who resided in the Mecca of progressive art. You can see the Deco influence in his approach, with simplistic forms, characters expressionlessly gazing away from the viewer, and a stylistic choice of the pale pallet of sepia for the lines and pastels for the forms. - BONUS ITEM: FIRST DAY COVER - JANE AUSTEN - 1775 - 1975 - Produced 22 OCT 1975 - Stamps Depict: 8 1/2p - Emma & Mr Woodhouse & 10p - Catherine Morland - 11p - Mr Darcy & 13p - Mary and Henry Crawford. ----- POSTAGE OPTIONS: Our orders are shipped within 1 or 2 business days. --- If you select 'Priority' as the postal option, you will get the fastest option.

        Soil Survey of Midland County, Texas. Series 1928, Number 31.

      Washington, D. C.: Bureau of Chemistry and Soils, [1933]. - 8vo., (9 x 6 inches). Large fine folding chromolithographed "Soil Map: Midland County Texas" (very short tear near mount), 2 in-text maps (a bit browned), 4 pages of photographs. Original publisher's printed wrappers, with map of Texas on rear cover (somewhat toned, short tear at the head of the spine). First edition. With a very large folding map in full color showing the different types of soil in Midland County, Texas. "Creation of the Division of Agricultural Soils in the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) in 1894 marked the beginning of a national commitment to soil science and soil survey activities. By 1899, soil surveyors had commenced field investigations for the first USDA soil surveys; one century later, soil surveys have been published for most counties in the United States. The surveys - inventories consisting of narrative descriptions, tables, and maps - include a wealth of interpretive information about soil characteristics and properties and about their limitations and potentials. These interpretations of how soils respond to different uses assist land users in making appropriate decisions. And while Congress and the federal government have supported the soil survey effort to help guide agricultural development, surveys have side application in a variety of environmental and land management uses. The development of the national soil survey program grew out of the intellectual curiosity and personal ambition of two men in particular, Charles W. Dabney, Jr. and Milton Whitney. But it was research at state agricultural experiment stations that created the favorable climate for Dabney's and Whitney's successes. This state-level research grew from a desire by state agricultural leaders to understand their soils and the relationship of the characteristics of those soils to plant growth. Ultimately, they believed, knowledge would contribute to a healthy agricultural economy" (Helms, ed., p. 1). Douglas Helms, et al., eds., "Profiles in the History of the U.S. Soil Survey."

        Roll, Jordan, Roll

      Bobbs-Merrill, Indianapolis 1933 - 1933 1st edition, 2nd issue. Very unusual edition, incorporating the original sheets printed by Ballou in 1933 with the Bobbs-Merrill title page. The cloth is red, instead of the blue used by Ballou. The dust jacket is also different, with the illustration in this issue being a variant of the 1st issue illustration. Ballou, the book's original publisher, went backrupt in 1934 and was bought out by Bobbs-Merrill. As a precursor to that acquisition, Bobbs seems to have experimented with some of the Ballou titles, merging their sheets with its own imprint. The result here is a very uncommon issue. Some water staining to the preliminary pages, otherwise clean and tight and solidly VG. A degree of water staining as well to the lower half of the jacket's panels and light chipping to the spine extremes. Still though, presentable and attractive and soldly VG-. Thick octavo, 251 pgs.

        Design for Living: A Comedy in Three Acts [*SIGNED* by the principals]

      Garden City NY: Doubleday, Doran and Company, Inc.. Very Good in Good dj. 1933. First Edition. Hardcover. NOISBN . (price-clipped) [light wear to book at extremities, slightly uneven fading to cloth, vintage bookshop label on rear pastedown (from The Drama Book Shop, N.Y.); jacket is edgeworn and a bit faded, with a fingernail-sized chip at top right corner of front panel, some scuffing to spine, slight paper loss at top of spine (no loss of text), a few tiny edge-tears]. SIGNED by the three stars of the original Broadway production -- Lynn Fontanne, Alfred Lunt and Noël Coward himself -- next to their corresponding names in the Characters list (Gilda, Otto and Leo). "A gleaming and witty satire on the strange complexities of love among artists," and a naughty scandal in its day -- too risque, it was thought, for the British censors and thus unproduced in London for another six years following its American premiere. (What would it take to shock "the public" comparably these days, I wonder? Probably impossible, actually.) Director Ernst Lubitsch and screenwriter Ben Hecht did their best with the Hollywood adaptation, but even though the Production Code wouldn't be fully in force until the following year there was only so much they could do; they pretty much had to rewrite the entire story. (Coward once remarked of the film version: "I'm told that there are three of my original lines left in the film, [including] 'Pass the mustard.'") The movie, of course, had movie stars -- Frederic March and Gary Cooper played the Coward and Lunt roles respectively, although even the character names were changed: the play's "Leo" and "Otto" became "Tom" and "George" in the film. (Miriam Hopkins was the lady in the ménage.) Signed by Author .

      Black Mountain, North Carolina: Black Mountain College. 1933. Stapled wrappers. [24]pp. Some glue remnants at the top of the front wrap from the original mailing envelope, and some oxidation at the staples, else near fine. The first catalog distributed for this highly influential college presenting class schedules, faculty and students, as well as general information about admissions and campus activities. With a foreword stating: "Black Mountain College was founded in order to provide a place where free use might be made of tested and proved methods of education and new methods tried out in a purely experimental spirit." And boy was that ever an understatement. Black Mountain was home to a generation of artists who thrived on its innovative course structure and teaching methods which supported the idea that work and play are interchangeable, and that practical responsibility is essential for student development. Numbered among its students and faculty were John Cage, Willem de Kooning, Charles Olson, Buckminster Fuller, Robert Rauschenberg, Robert Creeley, Ben Shahn, John Rice, Josef Albers, and Merce Cunningham, to name only a few. An early document from a college that became one of the most influential liberal arts schools of the 20th Century and the prototype for the modern alternative colleges found today.

        The Young and Evil

      Obelisk Press, Paris 1933 - First edition, trade issue. Self-wrappers. Brown butcher paper wrappers printed in red. A very handsome very near fine copy with a light wrinkle on the rear wrap. A notorious and exceptionally scarce impressionistic and joyous novel of homosexual life in Greenwich Village. Parker met Ford while writing for Ford's amateurishly produced *Blues* magazine, which was published in Ford's parents' home in Mississippi during 1929-30. Tyler encouraged him to move to New York and there they spent a year exploring the gay subcultures of Greenwich Village and Harlem before writing the book. Considered by some to be the first modern "out" gay novel, it was turned down by several mainstream publishers, until being championed by Gertrude Stein when it finally found a home with the obscure Paris-based imprint Obelisk Press, an English language publishing house specializing in the erotic and outre. Stein called this book "The novel that beat the Beat Generation by a generation." The front flap of the self-wrapper has blurbs by Stein and Djuna Barnes; according to G. Thomas Tanselle in his 1971 paper "Book-Jackets, Blurbs, and Bibliographers" (citing another source) this was the only wrapper blurb contributed by Stein during her lifetime, and possibly the only one from Barnes as well. The trade issue was estimated to have been about 2500 copies, of which at least 500 were seized and burned by British customs. There was also an issue of 50 copies on different paper, signed by Ford.

        Vintage Snapshot Photograph of the Babe and the Duke on Waikiki Beach

      Small vintage snapshot photograph of Babe Ruth and Duke Kahanamoku on Waikiki Beach. 4.5" x 2.75". Mounted on a black album page and presumably removed from an album. Near fine. The photo depicts both sports legends in bathing suits, standing with paddles in front of an outrigger canoe. In the background, another Hawaiian man brandishes a paddle (left-handed, as the Babe would do) and appears to be about to swat both of the legends in the back of the head. The two met in 1933 or 1934 when Ruth accompanied a barnstorming team that included Lou Gehrig, Jimmie Foxx, and Lefty Gomez. We have seen other copies of this photograph, so assume that it achieved some modest distribution in Hawaii. .
