        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.

        JEUNE FILLE DE SAIPAN ET FLEURS D'HIBISCUS. 'MARIANES.' YOUNG GIRL OF SAIPAN AND

      Japan 1934, Jacoulet. A single deluxe large print, sheet. size ca. 35 x 46 cm.,print size ca. 30 x 39.5 cm., woodblock. printed by hand on hand-made paper, carved by Yamagishi,. printed by Ushibara. FIRST LIMITED & ONLY NUMBERED EDITION. JACOULET'S FIRST PRINT ! NUMBER 71 OF 150 NUMBERED COPIES This being number 71 of 150 prints. * This is Jacoulet's FIRST print, and the print That launched his artistic career. It is also the first print in a projected flower series which included eight other prints. * The mica background is flawless & magnificent. Other printers who tried this delicate technique later saw this mica chip and flaked off. However, Jacoulet's master printer Ushibara expertly applied mica with such skill and produced a flawless example. * OUR COPY: Our copy is the FIRST PRINTING, of which 150 impressions were done, and is distinguished by the "two frown" lines found on the woman's forehead. Per Miles p.89, "this is omitted in the second edition." . This very RARE print is signed in pencil "Paul Jacoulet" then "Fan" sealed with his cinnabar chop [Hanko]. The paper is watermarked "PJ" in the lower left corner. Miles has also pointed out on p.128 that: "The South Seas prints were all created from sketches and paintings done between 1929 and 1936... Since many were lost because of World War II bombing of Tokyo, several of them are among the rarest & most desirable of all the artist's oeuvre." . Then Miles then cites a list of these "most desirable" prints, and begins with this print as number one on that list ! See Miles below. *** CONDITION: There is a bit of toning to the margin, otherwise, a flawless example. The sparkle of the crushed mica is truly beautiful and represents a high-water mark in Japanese woodblock hand-printing technique. Truly lovely as the day it was published. Framed and glazed. We have posted two color photos of this to our home page: the first under "cover" is a digital photo of this print; the second is the color frontispiece from Miles under "illustration 1." * A copy recently sold at auction for $1800. * REFERENCE: R. Miles; THE PRINTS OF PAUL JACOULET, illustrated as the color frontispiece and again on p.41, as item number 1, descriptive text on p.89. . Per Miles: "Jacoulet's first print was made from his favorite South Seas watercolor. The original depicted a far more worn and prematurely aged creature than did either of the editions... The paler coloring and introspective expression of the first impression gave way to crisper, brighter colors under Jacoulet's direct supervision. There is a rich silver mica background." *** Color scans can be sent by email. Images displayed may not always be the exact photo of the copy in stock for sale at any given time.

        Eleven New Cantos XXXI - XLI [SIGNED]

      New York: Farrar & Rinehart Incorporated, 1934. First edition. Hardcover. Fine/very good +. A Fine, Superior, copy of the first American Edition, first printing first issue -- with the error in the list of Pound's works facing the title page -- (a bare touch of edge wear), in a Very Good + dust jacket (some general toning, light wear to the spine ends and panel corners, two short closed tears: one where the rear panel meets the upper spine and one to the front panel's bottom edge, and one tiny tear where the rear panel meets the spine edge), SIGNED BY EZRA POUND on the title page; a relatively uncommon book of which only 1,500 copies were printed with only 1,000 of such copies having been used for this, the first issue [with the remaining 500 copies having been used for the second issue (New Directions, 1940]). Considered to be one of the most significant works of modernist poetry, the Cantos was issued over a period of time in multiple separate volumes and was left incomplete at Pound's death. The first four Cantos contained in this volume deal extensively in the emergence of the newly-born United States, quoting extensively from the writings of Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson, Martin Van Buren, and others. Those and the volume's other Cantos stretch an arc from the revolutionary times of Jefferson and the forming of a new nation to the fascism of Mussolini. Copies in the dust jacket are surprisingly uncommon and signed copies are scarce. A Fine, Superior, copy of the first edition, first printing, first issue, SIGNED BY EZRA POUND. QUITE SCARCE INDEED.

        After Worlds Collide

      Stanley paul and Co [1934], London - 8vo. 288pp. + 32pp. ads. Bound in publisher's terracotta cloth titled in black to spine and front board, some minor grubbiness here and there and light bumping to spine ends but a very good copy, strong and handsome. In a bright, clean, unclipped example of the vividly illustrated dustwrapper, some chipping to extremities, slight inoffensive loss to spine ends and with two discreet area of tape reinforcement to verso. A very striking example of a book seldom seen in wrapper, or in fact seldom seen, the US first is a far more readily available book. The sequel to the wildly successful "When World's Collide." which featured the imminent destruction of earth via a collision with two rogue planets (named Bronson Alpha and Bronson Beta, which I guess is an improvement on "Earth"). This state of affairs requires the hasty construction of a space ark to colonise Bronson Beta, a journey across a chaotic and anarchic US, a quantity of natural catastrophes and the similtaneous launch of several ark ships from different nations (the French don't make it, spoiler alert). This sequel picks up where the first novel ended (I realise that sequels usually do that) with our intrepid survivors exploring the mysterious expanse of Bronson Beta, discovering the ruins of a lost and considerably advanced civilisation and, naturally and inevitably, starting a war with the Russian, German and Chinese survivors, who refer to themselves as "The Dominion of Asian Realists" proving that geography is just so last planet. Apparently this is just manifest destiny no matter what has happened elsewhere in the universe. There's the usual jealousy over who gets to keep the best looking woman, she naturally doesn't get much of a say, and squabbles over leadership. It's about the most sci-fi piece of sci-fi I've ever catalogue. An edition that is tricky to locate in first, and even more so in dustwrapper. mh [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

"Man Ray's work introduced a particular note [to Surrealism], since he used photography and recognized early on that this medium could reproduce the effects of object-based art in two-dimensional form. Photography was in a position to preserve the ordinary and to unleash surreal effects" (Icons of Photography, 26). In a short preface entitled "The Age of Light," Ray cites "individual human emotion and desire" as the "only inspirations" for his pictures. Text in English and French. First edition, second issue, with the fictitious "Second Edition" on the cancel title page placed there by the publisher, who "attempted to generate demand where none existed by suggesting the edition had sold out... After replacing the title pages of these copies... with one stating second edition, he returned them for sale" (Roth, 80). See also Parr & Badger I:108.

        "Sapphire Mesa": Original typescript of this Western story, with numerous pencil corrections, on 126 pages, approximately 30,000 words. Clipped to page 1 is a pencilled note reading: "Manuscript copy / Published in Masked Rider Western / Written by William H. Stueber and used in magazine as by Orrin Holmer / Owned by us / Not yet elaborated"

      449 West 48th Street, New York City, 1934. 1 vols. 11 x 8-1/2 inches. Some marginal tape-repaired tears, else very good. 1 vols. 11 x 8-1/2 inches. Original Corrected Typescript of Zorro-Like Western Story. This story was originally titled "Phantom of Justice"; its hero bears a resemblance to Johnston McCulley's character Zorro: dressed in black, with a black mask, riding a black stallion, his real persona that of an intelligent, resourceful friend of downtrodden Mexican people, he is known as the Masked Rider, righter of wrongs. The fact that the story was published in The Masked Rider Western pulp magazine, Vol. 1, No. 3, for August 1934, is clearly no coincidence.

        Autograph letter signed "Milhaud" to an unidentified male correspondent

      - The performance to which Milhaud refers probably occured on September 11, 1934 at the Teatro La Fenice as part of the Venice Biennale. The program included the Italian premiere of the Symphonic Suite from Maximilien and other pieces by Berg, Stravinsky, Pizzetti, and Lambert. With the exception of the Berg, each composer conducted his own work."[Milhaud] was associated with the avant garde of the 1920s, whose abundant production reflects all musical genres. A pioneer in the use of percussion, polytonality, jazz and aleatory techniques, his music allies lyricism with often complex harmonies. Though his sources of inspiration were many and varied, his music has compelling stylistic unity." Jeremy Drake in Grove Music Online. 2 pp. Oblong octavo (ca. 103 x 138 mm.). Dated September 4 [?1934]. In ink on cardstock with "L'Enclos Aix-en-Provence Téléphone 99" printed at upper left corner. In French (with translation).Milhaud writes about an upcoming performance of his symphonic suite from his opera Maximilien, probably at the Venice Biennale. He regrets that his correspondent did not order material for it from Universal Edition, but is nonetheless very happy that "in spite of so many difficulties everything is arranged." He includes information about the suite within quotation marks. ". Because I can do nothing without the material, I have set my departure for Friday, and will be in Venice on Saturday. Here is some information about the suite: 'This symphonic suite comprises the dramatic interludes and the Overture from the opera Maximilien. premiered at the Paris Opéra in 1932. The Suite, performed for the first time in Italy, at the Venice Biennale, comprises 4 interludes (the last of which is a funeral song) and a Finale'. "With several autograph corrections. Slightly worn and soiled.

        Fragment de manuscrit autographe sur Gaston Doumergue

      1934 - - [1934], 1 page in-8, en feuilles. - Manuscrit autographe de l'auteur de 1 page in-8, vraisemblablement inédit. Manuscrit recto seul incomplet, à l'écriture dense, comportant quelques corrections et ajouts, au verso d'un relevé imprimé des abonnements au Journal des Débats, période de mai 1934 jusqu'à mai 1935. Ce texte de Maurice Blanchot a probablement été écrit peu après la démission du Président du Conseil (et ancien Président de la République), Gaston Doumergue, survenue le 8 novembre 1934. Le jeune homme est alors rédacteur en chef au Journal des Débats et ce manuscrit semble être un brouillon d'article consacré à la carrière de Doumergue, et resté vraisemblablement inédit, après son départ du gouvernement où il avait été appelé au lendemain des manifestations de février 1934. Il fait partie des rares manuscrits de cette époque encore conservés : Blanchot a en effet détruit la plupart de ses écrits des années 1930, reniant sa participation active et politique à la presse d'extrême-droite. Dans ce texte, Blanchot loue les talents de politicien de Doumergue : « Toute la carrière de Doumergue est marquée par une progression constante. Elle va par un perfectionnement remarquable vers le moment de sa vie où il tentera non seulement de gouverner mais d'améliorer les moyens du gouvernement. C'est cette sorte de dialectique qui le met à part comme homme et comme homme d'Etat. » Rare manuscrit des années 1930. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Probably unpublished manuscript text on Doumergues 1935. Very rare document of that era, Blanchot has destroyed most of the manuscript of that era. Attached: draft manuscripts composed of Nietzsche quotes. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Doctor Partridge's Almanack for 1935 (Signed Copy - Inscribed By Gerald Brenan to Augustus John)

      London: Chatto & Windus, 1934. First edition, first printing hardback in dustwrapper. Book bound in the original black cloth with gilt tiling to spine. 23.5 × 15cm. xii + 65pp. Full title: Doctor Partridge's Almanack for 1935, with an Account of his Resurrection from the Grave after lying dead in it for 2 Centuries by G. Robinson, Also a Brief Exposition of his Religious & Astrological Teaching by Professor Blish. Collected and Set Forth by George Beaton. This copy has been signed by Gerald Brenan to Welsh artist Augustus John to the ffep, with the addition of George Beaton in pencil under Brenan's name (probably in a different hand). Brenan and John were good friends, and John visited Brenan in his Spanish village home at Yegen. Gerald Brenan's second book (writing as George Beaton). This is a fantasy novelof sorts, andis described on the dustwrapper: "Dr Partridge was the astrologer whose death, it will be remembered, was predicted by Swift. When the time came, Swift published a description of the event. It was in vain that the poor astrologer protested that not only was he still alive but that he had also been alive upon the day in question - no-one believed him. He died in obscurity nineteen years later. In this book Mr Beaton brings Dr Partridge back to life with a philosophy and a message and a prophetic faculty acquired among the dead. It is a fantasy of a curious kind - moving about the figure of the sinister doctor, who advocates with alarmingly plausible arguments the religion and policy he has brought up from the grave. At the end come the prophecies, which are likely to be more exactly fulfilled than most people now imagine." Condition: The book itself is in good plus condition, it has a small split to the head of the spine and some minor bumping to the corners. There is also a little hint of forward lean to the spine. There is some very light foxing to the endpapers but the main body of text is in good clean condition and the binding is secure. The dustwrapper is rather worn, with loss to all corners and and the head and tail of the spine with a tanned spine and signs of overall wear. However, it has not been price-clipped (5s.) and is now within a protective sleeve. PLEASE SEE THE COX AND BUDGE WEBSITE FOR FURTHER DETAILS AND TO SEE OUR FULL RANGE OF BOOKS. MANY THANKS. . Signed by the Author. First Edition. Hardback. Very Good/Good / Fair.
