        Autograph letter signed.

      Küsnacht, 2. XI. 1934. - Large 4to. 2 pp. In German, to Hedwig Fischer, widow of Samuel Fischer who was Mann's publisher, on his name-imprinted stationery. He writes in part: "I just want to send you a greeting, nothing more. Hardly a day has gone by since we got the death notification in Basel, after the return trip from Lugano, without our speaking of you and your husband, and the shock that we felt at the time continues to reverberate and will for a long time. One had to be braced for this farewell, indeed, ultimately one almost had to be for it; and yet I cannot say how it moved me when it became reality. Nearly four decades of cooperation! I was very attached to the deceased. There was a placid cordiality between us, the way I have rarely experienced it in relationships with people, and hardly ever was there a superficial clouding or disgruntlement. Our characters were compatible, and I always felt that I was the born author for him and he my born publisher. I hinted at some of this in the memorial article, which probably came to your attention in the Sunday supplement of the Basler Nachrichten. It is indeed strange the way I rein in my feelings on such occasions, involuntarily suppressing them and growing cold for the sake of psychology and characterization. I'm just not a poet, but must resort to objectivity and distancing. I wouldn't be surprised if this were painful to you in this case. I am myself more satisfied with the two short pages I sent even now for the [Deutsche] Rundschau's memorial issue for [Peter] Suhrkarnp. May this issue turn out to be a very beautiful monument! From Reisiger, who will be coming to visit us in a few days, we heard that the end was gentle and without consciousness. That's fine and well. And you? How has your heart taken the separation? When one has been living side by side for so long and has shared everything! As soon as one starts thinking about life, the tears start to come. Your publishing house has brought out many beautiful and interesting things recently. Extremely interesting the book on Charlemagne. Döblin is planning an essay on it for the Sammlung, I hear, although emigrants otherwise don't like to mention German books, i.e., published in Germany. But what I read from start to finish and with quite unusual interest, was [Martin] Gumpert's Hahnemann, a life I knew hardly anything about and which in this presentation moved me deeply. Farewell, and be comforted! Give my regards to your children and grandchildren, and regards to you".

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

      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; hinged at upper edge with archival tape. . 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 Edited by Rudolf Stephan, Section IV: Orchestral Works. Series B, Volume 13, (Mainz: B. Schott's Söhne; Vienna: Universal Edition, 1993), p. xxiii.

        An Illustrated life of Confucius. Late Qing woodblock Edition Kong zi sheng ji Tu

      Peiping Civil Press. N. D. [1934?] - SHENGJI TU. (Illustrated Scenes from the Life of the Sage, Confucius). 30x40 cm. chinese tex,t, maps, illustrations, portraits + 105 woodblock prints depicting the life of confucius, in the original chinese sewn binding. protected in later chinese style blue cloth box, with straps and ivory needles. a very good copy. scarce.A recent article by Chun Shum in the 'East Asian Library Journal' (Vol. 10, no. 1) provides a wealth of information on what amounts to an exemplary sub-genre of Chinese illustrated book production. In fact, scenes from the life of the Confucius are, arguably, at the fountainhead of book illustration in China. Illustrations of Confucius' life exist in three media: as paintings, engraved on stone (typically reproduced in collections of rubbings), and as woodblock printed editions. The earliest painted version were probably produced in during the Eastern Han period; three sets of stone engravings are said to exist; and there have been many woodcut editions of the Sage's illustrated life. The earliest printed versions are thought to date to the 13th century, but no such Song editions survive. There are several Ming editions. The quality of the illustrations and of the prints differ greatly. This one is taken fromt blocks that appear to be the best we have seeen.The present work is a late Qing edition, most likely a later printing from the blocks prepared by Kong Xianlan in 1874. This edition is noted and described in Chun Shum's article (pp. 153-55), and the sample illustration reproduced matches the corresponding images in the present work. All 105 images collated by Chun Shum are present, along with the introductory text taken from the biography of Confucius in the 'Shiji'. Quality of paper and printing indicate that this may be a somewhat later impression from Kong's blocks, impossible to date precisely. the impressions are clear and the book is a rich source of the visual imagery - based on earlier, Ming model - produced at the time. Scanned samples available on request.

        Fugitives. The Story of Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker

      Dallas: The Ranger Press, Inc., , 1934. As told by Bonnie's Mother (Mrs. Emma Parker) and Clyde's Sister (Nell Barrow Cowan.) Compiled, Arranged, and Edited by … Octavo, original vermilion cloth lettered in black on spine and upper board, with the striking pictorial dust jacket. Dual portrait frontispiece, tail-piece. A very good copy in price-clipped jacket, a little sunned at the spine, a few chips at the edges with no loss to lettering or images, lower panel a little remarked, but remains a very good copy. First edition. Rushed out within two months of the death of the notorious couple in a road-side ambush in Louisiana, this sensational "ghosted" joint biography - drawing credibility, but very little new information from the families - was one of the primary sources of the romantic legend of Bonnie and Clyde. A bright copy.

In the regular red paper over boards, with white paper printed label on the upper cover. Fine in original glassine (chipped). Bookplate. In our experience this issue is rarer than the deluxe morocco binding. The Rare Issue in Boards This is an almost unprocurable Derrydale Press title. The book appeared in two bindings: red paper boards with a printed white label, and in full leather with gilt medallion on upper cover. Siegel states that "We understand from a reliable source that upon housekeeping after Mr. Reynal's death, a large carton of Thoughts Upon Hunting Kit was taken to the dump ...".

        Epithalamion. A Poem

      (Higham) : Gemini Press , (1934) but 1980. Tall quarto. (51)pp. From an edition of 330 copies, this is one of 280 copies on Basingwerk Parchment. Each of the twenty-three stanzas of the poem is illustrated with a full-page wood-engraving by Hughes-Stanton, who was typical of most of the English wood engravers of his day in that he preferred deep black prints from the blocks. He was the most accomplished artist technically, creating "engravings so fine that it is hard to believe they are wood." While his idiom is is modern, he revived the use of the multiple tool which engraves several parallel lines simultaneously. This produces a variety of textures seldom achieved by others. This is the first of only two books printed under Hughes-Stanton's own Gemini Press imprint. This is the Basilisk Press reissue of the unsold copies from the 1934 printing, of which more than half the edition remained in sheets. Hughes-Stanton has signed the colophon page in graphite, and there is an additional booklet included in the slipcase that provides background into the establishment of the Gemini Press, the printing of this particular title, and a bibliography of Hughes-Stanton's work. Extremely fine in a binding by Paul Collet and David Sellars of brown morocco-trimmed boards and brown morocco lettering piece, housed in a board slipcase.
