        [ART EXHIBITION ON MOSCOW STREETS] Moskva 1 maia 1933 [i.e. Moscow on the 1st of May of 1933]

      [Moscow]: Tsentr. pervomaiskaya khudozh, podkomissia Mossoveta, [1933]. 48 pp. 17,5x12,5 cm. In original constructivist-style wrappers. Very good, small tears of the spine, diagonal crease of the upper part of the back cover and a few pages. One of 3000 copies. First and only edition. Rare. This edition is dedicated to the profound and well-planned decoration of the city due to a big celebration of the May 1st of 1933 (the first year of the second five-year-plan, piatiletka). The book itself has a laconic geometrical yet catchy wrapper design. The book includes catalogue of all paintings which were presented outside on Gor'ky (Tverskaia), Petrovka, Stoleshnikov and Kuznetsky streets with artists' names, titles and exact places where paintings were installed. All paintings were dedicated to such subjects as geography of USSR, manufacturing and agriculture, military forces and Revolution, etc. The interesting part of the catalogue is a description of squares' decoration. There were 8 decorated squares with different themes. The Red Square decoration was constructed by Stenberg brothers, and the theme was «Long live May the 1st, the holiday of solidarity of the international proletariat!». The main elements of the decoration were two giant portraits of Lenin and Stalin on GUM building and a panel with Pervomai slogans on 4 languages. A monumental sculpture by Kuznetsov was installed on the Lobnoye Mesto. Okhotnyi riad was decorated with «architectural construction» designed by Gustav Klutsis (the theme was «Raise the Banner of Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin») which was installed on the facade of hotel «Moskva». The project was based on the poster by Klutsis on the same subject (printed by IZOGIZ). The idea was to show how closely Stalin's rule connected to revolutionary studies of Marx and Engels. There were 4 panels, on one of them there were depicted fortresses of old world and of new (Dneprostroi). All elements were lit. Decorating of parades and public events in early Soviet history could be considered an art form just like agitprop posters or art. Any information we can gather right now on the designs and the organization of these events is historically and culturally important.

Hans Bernhard Merian's French translation of Michaelis's Fragen an eine Gesellschaft gelehrter Männer (1762), prepared during the early stages of Carsten Niebuhr's Danish expedition to the Middle East. It is the first edition in any language to be printed in the Netherlands. Johann David Michaelis, a famed German Orientalist and theologian, was one of the scholars who prompted the important Danish expedition to Egypt, Arabia and Syria (1761-1767), led by Carsten Niebuhr. Michaelis hoped to investigate the relationship of the southern Arabic dialects to Hebrew, and to verify obscure botanical and zoological information in the Bible. For this purpose he composed the present 100 "questions". It includes the instructions for the expedition by Frederick V of Denmark, a 35-page account of Yemen and an extract of Carsten Niebuhr's account of Arabia (not included in the first French edition of 1763). Back of first free endleaf with traces of removed bookseller's(?) ticket. With an occasional small rust spot, but otherwise in very good condition and only slightly trimmed, leaving large margins. Binding with minor suface damage and wear at the hinges and extremities, but otherwise also very good. Important preparatory studies concerning Egypt, Arabia and Syria, written and first published during the early stages of a voyage.

        Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas, The [First Issue]

      New York: Harcourt, Brace, 1933. First Edition, as stated. Hardcover. Fine/Near Fine+. First Issue (silver-blue cloth), one of 5400 copies ("no known breakdown between the [three] various issues"-Wilson). 8vo: [8],310pp, with frontispiece and 15 further photographs. Publisher's silver-blue cloth, spine and upper cover stamped gilt, top edge stained silver-gray; in an unglazed pictorial dust jacket (price-clipped) printed in black and orange, featuring a photo by Man Ray (which is repeated as the frontispiece). A Fine, unread copy, square, tight and unmarked, in a better than Near Fine jacket with brief edge wear, slight toning to spine, few stray spots on back panel. Haas & Gallup XXI. Wilson A20a. From May to August 1933, several chapters of The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas appeared in the Atlantic Monthly. The book was not available until August, and in the United States the first printing sold out by August 22, nine days before the official publication date. At the age of 59, Stein had become a popular success. As she explained in Everybody's Autobiography (1937): "Well anyway it was a beautiful autumn in Bilignin and in six weeks I wrote The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas and it was published and it became a best seller . . . I bought myself a new eight-cylinder Ford car and the most expensive coat make to order by Hermes . . . I had never made any money before in my life and I was most excited. "Gertrude Stein's life-long companion, Alice B. Toklas, is the narrator of this book written by Stein, which describes their life together in Paris from Alice's point of view. Thus, The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas is not, in fact, Alice B. Toklas's autobiography; instead it is Gertrude Stein's idea of what such a book might look like. . . . [It] can also be described as a selective history of artistic and literary developments in Paris in the 1910s and 1920s, [with] witty stories of how Stein and her brother Leo began to collect early paintings by Paul Cézanne, Henri Matisse, and Pablo Picasso . . . first-hand accounts of numerous social gatherings, including the famous banquet for Rousseau given by Picasso and his wife . . . [and, in] one frequently cited story, Alice explain[ing] that, at a dinner party with many of the well know artists in Paris at the time, 'After a while I murmured to Picasso that I liked his portrait of Gertrude Stein. Yes, he said, everybody says that she does not look like it but that does not make any difference, she will, he said.' . . .

Being in the main a complete compendium of the Cocktails, Rickeys, Daisies, Slings, Shrubs, Smashes, Fizzes, Juleps, Cobblers, Fixes, and other Drinks, known and vastly appreciated in this year of grace 1930, with sundry notes of amusement and interest concerning them, together with subtle Observations upon Wine and their special occasions. Being in the particular an elucidation of the Manners and Customs of people of quality in a period of some equality. [Signed]

      London: Constable, 1933. Early Reprint. Hardcover. Fine. Second Printing of the Second Edition, new and enlarged (pp. 282-86 list "New and Additional Cocktails"), of this classic mixology guide. Signed by Craddock, in very elegant script, on copyright page: "Here's How! / Harry Craddock / December 10, 1934." 8vo: 287,[1]pp. Publisher's finely woven tangerine cloth, spine and upper cover lettered in black, decorative end papers; wanting the dust jacket. Presented in two parts: Cocktails and Wines with an introduction by "Colette." A superlative example, square, tightly bound, internally fresh and bright, virtually pristine, with the author's scarce autograph. First published in 1930, three years before this new and enlarged edition (complete with all of Gilbert Rumbold's stylish color illustrations from the first edition). A compendium featuring some 750 of Craddock's popular classics, including the famous Corpse Reviver #2, which he invented, and the Dry Martini, which he popularized. Craddock decamped to London's Savoy Hotel after Prohibition put a crimp on his career in the United States. His bar book was one of the first to not only list drink recipes but also to provide a wine guide. (Craddock contended every good bartender possessed a solid wine knowledge.) It is a fascinating record of the cocktails that set London alight in the years between the Wars. The legendary Savoy opened in 1889; César Ritz was its first manager, and Auguste Escoffier created its fine cuisine. N. B.

Light edge-wear and chipping; with a fingernail-sized chip at the bottom of the spine and some light bluish-green staining along the left edges and the botom of the rear panel; this staining or bleeding appears to have come from another book which was up against the dustjacket. The front inside flap has a few light vertical creases. With the striking front panel printed in gold with a colorful portrait of Glibson. An attractive copy of this early banking exposé which has become scarce in dustjacket. "Meet Mr. Glibson! Glibson is a boomtime banker, who's glided through the Depression and still lives high, wide and handsome.He's a choice flower plucked from our weedy industrial garden.You've got a Glibson in your town.We've got a Glibson in our town.There's really nothing crooked about Glibson. His great fault is that he knows the platitudes and uses them. This is the story of how he became the great Blabit of banking. It is the most withering portrayal of financial boobery in high places that has ever appeared in print. It is savage, ruthless, funny, wise, and courageous.Tichenor writes with the vigor and frankness of Sinclair Lewis."
