      In 8vo; pp.371. Dodici tavole. Esemplare a fogli chiusi. Cart. edit. slegato. Ad un secolo dalla erudita pubblicazione di Rosario Mangoni, Cerio pubblicò quest?opera che egli stesso volle definire ?catalogo ragionato della Biblioteca Caprese?. Dotto lavoro, uno dei più preziosi su Capri. Gli occhi incantati dell?autore frugano con amorosa insistenza nella storia della bella Capri, cercando quanto possa magnificarla. Al poeta così si sostituisce l?erudito che studia gli archivi per conoscere la storia dei Capitani di Capra ed Anna Crapa, delle capitolazioni che ?comunicano lo sfratto alle persone vagabonde, disutili e scandalose?, della magnifica Certosa e della sua vita. Né può sfuggire la tristezza soffusa nelle pagine sulla peste del 1656, un avvenimento tanto lontano che ancora sembra ferire l?anima di Cerio. Edizione a limitato tiraggio, copia n. 310 di 350. Dedica autografa a Kenneth Macpherson from Cerio. Sandomenico, pag. 116.

        The Daring Young Man On The Flying Trapeze + full chemise and slipcase

      New York: Randon House. NF/VG+. 1934. 1st Edition. Hardcover; 1st Printing. Stated 1st Edition, and one of only 1900 copies of the1st Printing of the author's 1st book, in original dustjacket, and housed in a grayish-green cloth-covered full chemise and slipcase with a black leather spine label with gold printing. The Near Fine book is bound in rough finish woven ivory colored cloth with a black spine, a gold foil with black printing wrap-around title band mounted on the binding, and it has publisher's orange upper page edges. The book is straight, clean, very tight (probably unread), with no previous owner's writing or soiling. There is a very slight bump to the upper spine end by the back fold, a tiny black dot (pencil-point sized) to the lower rear binding panel, and a short, narrow depression to the front of the gold foil band that didn't remove any color. The dustjacket is surprisingly well preserved for aged uncoated paper - very close to Near Fine but I'll call it VG+. It is price intact, clean and not fragile, with some of the normal toning to the edges (less than it looks like on our scan) and a bit more toning to the spine though the black and red spine printing isn't faded at all. It has 3 small edge nicks at spine end folds, 1 very short completely closed edge tear upper front panel near the spine, a small surface abrasion at the lower spine end not interferring with lettering - and that's it as far as wear. There are a few faint finger smudges that aren't obtrusive at all. The dustjacket is now protected by a clear, removable heavy mylar cover. The chemise and slipcase have been custom made to fit the book at some time in the past. The chemise folds to cover the book all the way around (with ends open) and has a ribbon-pull to get the book and chemise out of the slipcase easily. There is just a tiny bit of cloth wear to the outside edges of the slipcase, and some small surface scratches not affecting the gilt lettering to the leather title label on the slipcase's closed side. Our scan makes the chemise look a different color than the slipcase but it isn't - both are the darker color shown in the slipcase spine image. Quite a handsome presentation of the author's 1st book of short stories. ; 9-1/8" x 5-3/4"; 270 pages .

Bound in publisher's green cloth, with mask illustration stamped in blue to the front board, spine lettering and decorations stamped in blue and red. A near fine copy, with a hint of wear to the spine ends, typical fading to the spine, bright panels with much less fading than usual, bright and fresh interior. An excellent copy. Layman A 6.1.a. The Thin Man is Hammett's fifth and final novel. In a departure from his hard-boiled detective characters, this text features Nick and Nora Charles. Nick, a former detective, and Nora, his sarcastic wife, spend their time drinking and conversing, but get unwillingly pulled into a murder mystery involving the Wynant family. When a skeleton is discovered in plus-sized clothing, the natural assumption is that the deceased was a portly individual, but Nick and Nora quickly realize that the body was placed in false clothing and is actually the remains of a missing Wynant family member - a thin man. Hammett never wrote a sequel to The Thin Man, despite requests. Regardless, it was turned into a six-part film series along with a subsequent television series.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        Paul Leautaud

      1934. Lithograph. Trial proof of third state. Image measure 7.75 x 5.5". Sheet measures 14.75 x 10.75". This portrait by Edouard Vuillard depicts Paul Léautaud (1872-1956), a French writer and theater critic. In his concentrated pouring over a manuscript, Leautaud exemplifies the interiority for which Vuillard was famous in his paintings and drawings. Unlike his Impressionist predecessors, who often painted outdoors, the Symbolist Vuillard was more interested in domestic and private scenes. At the same time, the lithograph's subtle variations in tone and variety of drawing movements reflect the artist's career-long interest in how overall pattern could offer a more subjective or even impressionistic interpretation of a scene or portrait. In his prints, drawings, and paintings, Vuillard paid careful attention to decoration as a way to investigate the internal dynamics inherent in such closed off and even secretive spaces. In his portrait of Leautaud, we see the author in a private moment of reading: an intimate glimpse into a man who was by all means an eccentric if not reclusive character, preferring the company of animals to people and never venturing far from his Paris home. The portrait belongs to a late period in Vuillard's career when the artist dedicated himself to the modern portrait, practicing on the various members of French society with whom he came into contact. Vuillard originally made the portrait made to accompany Léautaud's autobiographical novel "Amours" when it was published in Éditions Spirale in 1934. The lithograph was published in an edition of 150. The print is in excellent condition with no chips or tears. Edouard Vuillard (1868-1940) was a French painter and printmaker associated with the Nabis, a group of late 19th-century artists who worked in the boundary between fine art and design. Influenced as much by the Impressionists as by Art Nouveau and Japanese printmaking, Vuillard and his artistic milieu became especially interested in advancing technologies such as color lithography, which allowed them to create a delicate balance of flatness and depth in their work. This portrait of Paul Leautaud speaks as much to Vuillard's artistic talent as it does to the central status in French culture he and his work attained in the early 20th century, a status of which he remains much deserving.

        The Death Ship: The Story of an American Sailor

      New York: Knopf, 1934. First American Edition.. Hardcover. 372pp. Octavo [21.5 cm] Black cloth. Very good/Very good. Minor discoloring to jacket. Rear hinge going. & & The Death Ship/Das Totenschiff was originally written in English in 1923 or 1924. Traven translated it into German at the request of Buchergilde Gutenberg editor Ernst Preczang who was impressed by the serialization of Die Baumwollpflucker in Vorwarts. Das Totenschiff was published in 1926. It was the first book to appear under the Traven name and its success established Traven's reputation.& & Traven's most brilliant novel. It is a sardonic work about identity and a satire on the faceless bureaucracy. The American sailor, Gales, has no papers; therefore, in the eyes of the authorities, he doesn't exist. In order to escape from Europe he is forced to sign aboard a "Death Ship." Considerably revised and rewritten from the Chatto & Windus edition with 61 additional pages, and is considered by many to be a superior translation. Treverton 32.

        Zum Rationalismusstreit in der gegenwärtigen Philosophie. [Sonderdruck (aus) Zeitschrift für Sozialforschung. Herausgegeben im Auftrag des Instituts für Sozialforschung. Jahrgang III, 1934, Heft I].

      Paris, Félix Alcan, 1934. 8vo. Original stapled wrappers. Minor dust-soiling to wrappers, but otherwise very fine. A stamp: "91. Rue de Lausanne/ Genève" (where Horkheimer and the Institute were in exile) as well as the inscription: "Vom Verfasser überreicht" to p. 1. 53 pp.. Very rare first edition, off-print (from Zeitschrift für Sozialforschung) with presentation-inscription, of Horkheimer's foundational confrontation with the new metaphysics, constituting his most important analysis and critique of scientism and formalistic rationalism. Horkheimer believed that metaphysics, and especially the proponents of the "Lebensphilosophie" (Dilthey, Bergson, and also Nietzsche) had successfully drawn attention to the shortcomings of a particular type of analytic thought, which he called traditional theory or logic. It is this idea that he later develops further and which constitutes the foundation of the work that he wrote a few years later, which became known as the manifesto of the Institute, "Traditional and Critical Theory" (1937). Using the reified "ego cogito" to describe what he understands as one of the fundamental characteristics of traditional logic, he here goes on to describe the second important traditional logical assumption that underlies both rationalism and empiricism, namely their unitary, static, and dualistic concept of knowledge. In the present work he maintains that rationalism "presupposes a constant relationship between concept and reality, independent of human praxis" ; among its empiricist critis, Horkheimer continues, these "assumptions of Cartesian philosophy remain untouched" ... "In both philosophical approaches, truth consists in judgments whose concepts are related to individual sense data as the general is to the particular. According to the empiricists, these concepts arise from the sensuous material and are derived by a process of progressive omission of substantive differences - that is, through abstraction. According to the rationalists ... they are fundamental unities inherent in reason ... Knowledge is independent of forces external to or fundamentally different from consciousness. Its relation to the object, its task, the limits of capacity, indeed its most important contents may be determined once and for all." (from the present work, in the English translation, pp. 217-19). " Max Horkheimer (1895-1973) was a leader of the"Frankfurt School," a group of philosophers and social scientists associated with the "Institut für Sozialforschung" (Institute of Social Research) in Frankfurt am Main. Horkheimer was the director of the Institute and Professor of Social Philosophy at the University of Frankfurt from 1930-1933, and again from 1949-1958. In between those periods he would lead the Institute in exile, primarily in America. As a philosopher he is best known (especially in the Anglophone world), for his work during the 1940s, including "Dialectic of Enlightenment", which was co-authored with Theodor Adorno. While deservedly influential, "Dialectic of Enlightenment" (and other works from that period) should not be separated from the context of Horkheimer's work as a whole. Especially important in this regard are the writings from the 1930s, which were largely responsible for developing the epistemological and methodological orientation of Frankfurt School critical theory. This work both influenced his contemporaries (including Adorno and Herbert Marcuse) and has had an enduring influence on critical theory's later practitioners (including Jürgen Habermas, and the Institute's current director Axel Honneth)." (SEP). When the Institute for Social Research's directorship became vacant in 1930 after the departure of Karl Grunberg, Horkheimer was elected to the position. In the same year, Horkheimer took over the chair of social philosophy at Frankfurt University. The following year publication of the Institute's "Zeitschrift für Sozialforschung" began, with Horkheimer as its editor. Horkheimer intellectually reoriented the Institute, proposing a programme of collective research aimed at specific social groups (namely the working class) that would highlight the problem of the relationship of history and reason. The Institute aimed to integrate the thought of Marx and Freud. The Frankfurt School attempted this by systematically hitching together the different conceptual structures of historical materialism and psychoanalysis. Horkheimer worked to make the Institute a purely academic enterprise.Horkheimer's "venia legendi" was revoked by the new Nazi government because of the Marxian nature of the Institute's ideas as well as its prominent Jewish association. The Institute thus closed its location in Germany in 1933. He immigrated to Switzerland, and then to America the following year, where Columbia University agreed to host the Institute in exile and even offered Horkheimer a building for the Institute. For a short period, the organ of the Institute, "Zeitschrift für Sozialforschung" was printed in Paris
