        'T. E. Lawrence' In Arabia and After.

      London: Jonathan Cape, , 1934. Octavo, original red orange buckram, matching top-stain, title gilt to the spine and front board. In the dust jacket. Portrait frontispiece after Augustus John and 11 other plates, 5 folding maps. A touch cocked, light toning, else very good in rubbed and soiled jacket, lacking part of the front panel and spine. First edition. A superb association copy of this highly influential early biography which was central to the creation of the Lawrence myth. Inscribed by the author to his secretary on the front free endpaper, "To Doris Josselyn, 'Adjutant-General to the Forces' by which this book was carried forward and the objective toilfully attained - with all good wishes from B.H. Liddell Hart, 26th February 1934"; and with a short pencilled note from Lawrence, dated 26.VI.33, loosely inserted, "Miss D. Josselyn, You will see that it's Liddell Hart's fault if ["that" struck out] all this mess of scribbling around his text affronts your eye. He asked for it, and for it to be sent to you. Soit - T.E.S." Liddell Hart submitted the typescript, and/or proofs of the book to Lawrence for his critique, which was duly forthcoming (see King's College, LHMA, Liddell 9/13). B.H. Liddell Hart was one of the most influential military thinkers of the twentieth century, and considered that his friend Lawrence "was more deeply steeped in knowledge of war than any other general of the First World War"; a judgement that has been seen as hyperbolic by many in the intervening 80 years, but which in view of current thinking on the increasing prevalence of asymmetric warfare, and counterinsurgency operations seems remarkably prescient.

        Typed letter signed in full to the noted American band composer and leader Edwin Franko Goldman

      - Text in English.1/2 page, single-spaced. Large octavo, 266 x 184 mm. Dated Brookline, Massachusetts, January 31, 1934. With Schoenberg's name and address handstamped at upper left corner. In English.Schoenberg comments about a commissioned translation, by Goldman, of a text he had originally written in German. He is not quite satisfied with Goldman's work and requests a new translation:"Dear Mr. Goldman, you find enclosed the translation you have send [!] me with your letter of January 29th. There you find also some marginal notes where I have signed some of the parts of the translation, by which I cannot be satisfied.I understand your intention in translating my words and I can well appreciate it. Surely it would be of a great advantage if all I have written could be said in such a manner that everybody can conceive it. But surely also: The thought would loose [!] so much of its dep[th] and of its prospect, that I am forced to renounce another succes[s] of my word, than an [in?]adequate-one."Manuscript annotation to upper right corner in an unknown hand (?Goldman's): "Ans." [?Answer].Slightly browned and stained; creased at folds; with minor remnants of archival mounting tape to blank verso. Edwin Franko Goldman (1878-1956) was a band composer and bandleader living in New York. The letter inadvertently testifies to the newly-immigrated Schoenberg's struggle with the English language, but also to Schoenberg's uncompromising nature. In the end, Goldman decided to publish Schoenberg's article in German. See Schoenberg's letter to Goldman, February 3, 1934, published in Arnold Schoenberg: Sämtliche Werke Section IV: Orchestral Works. Series B, Volume 13 edited by Rudolf Stephan (Mainz: B.

        Autograph musical quotation signed "Karol Szymanowski" from his Symphonie concertante (Symphony No. 4, Op. 60)

      - Notated on a partial album leaf, ca. 73 x 149 mm. Signed and dated London, October 29, 1934 in dark blue ink.Two measures on one staff with treble clef, 3/4 time signature, and a key signature of one flat. Autograph titling ("Symphonie Concertante") to upper margin. With the autograph signature of noted German soprano Ria Ginster (1898-1985) in black ink to verso.Slightly worn and soiled; verso with minor wear, brief annotation in pencil, and remnants of transparent tape to margins. The Symphonie Concertante, for solo piano and orchestra, was premiered in Pozna on October 9, 1932, with the composer at the piano. Although he dedicated it to the great pianist Anton Rubinstein, Szymanowski intended to perform the piece himself, on as many stages as possible, to earn money. He therefore "shaped the solo part with a view to his own performance capabilities, adjusting it to his hand; hence, the work is very different from the typical 'pianism' of contemporary concertos - those by Maurice Ravel or Prokofiev. In order to add brilliance, somewhat lacking in the piano part, Szymanowski increased the role of the orchestra, in a colourful and impressive style. so that the soloists'; figures are constantly being supplemented and "ornamented" by the picturesque and brilliant timbres of the symphonic ensemble, to a degree which goes beyond the usual convention of the concerto form and the idea of a dialogue." "Symphonie concertante for piano and orchestra op. 60." karolszymanowski.pl.Szymanowski, a noted Polish pianist and composer, was much influenced by the music of his countryman Chopin, Polish folk music, and a number of other composers including Strauss, Debussy and Ravel.

        La Esporazione Della Regione Fra l'Himalaja Occidentali e Il C\aracorum. Vol 1 of Serie II Spedizione Italiana De Filippi.

      Nicola Zanichelli, Bologna 1934 - 10 folding maps [itineraries etc], 8 foldng plates with panoramas from photographs, 26 other plates of photographs, 2 single plate coloured maps, frontispiece photo plate, 4 folding coloured maps in rear pocket [Cashmir r Regioni Limitrofe], 80 route sketch maps [many full page, others smaller in text, xi, 430pp. Late 20th century black half morocco gilt, original paper covers bound in, the front cover [somewhat stained and damaged with a presentation inscription from the author "all Missione Moraviana di Leh, Giotto Dainelli". The binding is in fime condition, the contents are clean apart from some browning towards the extreme edges of the wide margins, all the maps and plates remain neatly folded, the pages have not been trimmed by the binder, a few are still uncut. Volumes of this monumental work on Himalayan exploration are not easy to find and many are very technical. This is probably the most generally useful and the most accessible, dealing with almost every expedition from that of Mir Izzet Ullah in 1812 to journeys by Dainelli, Meinertxhagen, Mason, and Visser in the late 1920s. The work includes a 50 page bibliography. The text is in Italian but the vast amount of illustration gives it a universal appeal even to those with little or no knowledge of the language. This is the only copy of this volume we have come across having originally sold this same copy to a collector in the 1990s and now being pleased to be able to offer it again. Size: Folio [31 x 22cm, 12 x 9ins] [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
