Greenwood from A.N.E. Browne, 27.III. 1925 [? for 1935]". Noted by Sutcliffe on the NAM/AMOT on-line bibliography as limited to 50 copies. Browne served with the regiment, including a period as A.D.C. to the Governor of Malta, later being severely wounded during the Boer War; "[in April 1901] the H.L.I. Mounted Infantry, serving with the 12th Mounted Infantry Battalion, had a brush with the Boers near Rietfontein, about twenty miles west of Pretoria. The action was unusual in that it was fought mounted, and Captain A. N. E. Browne was severely wounded in the mêlée, getting one bullet in his stomach and another through his arm, which later had to be amputated. In spite of this he got the better of the Boers and brought his men away safely. In his later years he wrote a book on the dress of the 71st, illustrating it himself in spite of his one arm" (Oatts, Proud Heritage, volume III). Still recorded as Adjutant 8th Battalion Highland Light Infantry in 1908.

        Paul Leautaud

      1934 - 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 Vuillard originally made the portrait made to accompany Léautaud's autobiographical novel "Amours" when it was published in Éditions Spirale in 1934.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. Lithograph. Trial proof of third state. Image measure 7.75 x 5.5". Sheet measures 14.75 x 10.75".

        The Naval Memoirs of Admiral of the Fleet Sir Roger Keyes

      London: Thornton Butterworth, Ltd.,, 1934. The Narrow Seas to the Dardanelles, 1910-1915. Octavo. Original blue combed cloth, title gilt to the spine, publisher's device in blind to the upper board. Portrait frontispiece and 15 other plates, 5 folding charts, 7 to the text. slightly rubbed, spine a bit tanned, endpapers browned, text-block tanned, one map neatly reattached to the stub, overall a very good copy. First edition. This copy from the library of Admiral Sir Hugh Binney, with his bookplate to the front pastedown, and his ownership inscription dated in 1934 pencilled to the front free endpaper. Loosely inserted is an extremely interesting three-page autograph letter signed from Keyes to Binney written in the year of publication. Keyes thanks Binney for his letter and goes on to discuss the reasons for "not putting Officers and ratings in the trawlers" - reorganizing manning following the failed attack of the 18 March - "you see we had no men to spare if we were to fight on through to the Marmora as we confidently hoped to in the next 24 hours … As it turned out it would have been better to let the ships go short." Concludes by thanking Binney for the loan of his diary of the Queen Elizabeth which Keyes found "most useful," and asking for clarification on details of 15-inch shrapnel shells, "I would correct it in the 2nd Edition if wrong." A few pencilled marks in the relevant passages, and the map at the point has clearly been removed for reference and latter reattached. Binney served as gunnery officer on HMS Queen Elizabeth during the Dardanelles Campaign; he was later officer-in-charge of the Tactical School at Portsmouth, and commander of the 1st battle squadron in the Mediterranean. In the Second World War he was flag officer of the Orkneys and Shetlands and then Cardiff, and was governor of Tasmania from 1945 to 1951. An excellent Dardanelles association copy of an important account.

        Gruppo Futurista Reggio Emilia. Mostra aeropittura venticinquenni futuristi. Macchine inutili. Polimaterici. Dibattiti - conferenze.

      stampato da G. Notari e figli XII [1934]. Poster murale formato 1000 x 700 mm che reclamizza la mostra nell?«Atrio municipale 22 aprile 6 maggio XII». Munari e il gruppo dei ?Venticinquenni futuristi della centrale di Milano?, nato in occasione della mostra alla Galleria delle tre arti di Milano nel marzo ?34 («Scelta futuristi venticinquenni. Omaggio dei futuristi venticinquenni al venticinquennio del Futurismo»), sbarcano qualche mese dopo a Reggio Emilia per una mostra in joint venture con i futuristi emiliani. L?evento si svolge in due sale, quella dei venticinquenni milanesi, e quella «dei Futuristi Camillo Camellini del Gruppo di Reggio, Mario Molinari del Gruppo di Modena, Aristide Barilli del Gruppo di Parma». Di questo significativo evento ? troppo a ridosso della mostra milanese, e che non ebbe evidentemente lo stesso afflusso di pubblico ? rimangono purtroppo tracce molto scarse, non essendosi stampato alcun catalogo: una notizia su «Città nuova» di Fillia (III,7-8, 30 apr. 1934, p. 7), poco più di una citazione in un articolo su «Sant?Elia» di Somenzi (III,67, 15 mag. 1934, ultima pagina con testata ?Futurismo?), ma soprattutto questo poster gigante, ideato in tre varianti di colore (ovviamente rosso, bianco e verde) e con grafica estremamente moderna. Il poster è a catalogo del Getty Museum di Los Angeles (Id. 890158**, pare in tutte e tre le varianti di colore) e del Wolfsonian di Miami (Id. TD1991.185.1, nella variante verde). Cfr. Lista, Le livre futuriste, 171 (p. 72, verde); Mughini - Scudiero, Il manifesto pubblicitario italiano; Colizzi, Bruno Munari and the invention of modern graphic design in Italy (PhD. Thesis, Leiden University, 2011), p. 140s.: «In April, when the show travelled to Reggio Emilia, Munari created a purely typographic poster, an absolutely unique piece in his entire production. The composition seems to have been assembled directly on the press with moveable wood type, according to the artist?s loose directions (perhaps aimed at achieving a Dada-esque effect), in the disorderly arrangement of the texts, which lacked any clear structure, in the unusual horizontal format, and above all in the decision to print it on papers of various colours». Il nostro esemplare è nella variante stampata su carta bianca; presenta contenute mancanze marginali (di cui solo una coinvolge parzialmente il testo, tagliando la ?g? di «Gruppo Futurista...»), ma nel complesso è ottimamente conservato, su carta ancora fresca e pulita. Nell?angolo destro del piede apposto timbro d?epoca «Gruppo futuristi reggiani | F | Fondazione | 20 - 9 - 32 - X». Straordinario reperto munariano e del Gruppo futurista reggiano, estremamente raro.

        Vol. 11 of 29 Atlases of Insurance Maps for Queens. Flushing

      New York: Sanborn Map Company, 1934. hardcover. very good. Atlas. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Massive elephant folio. Decorative calligraphic titles, indices, and key maps. Contains a set of 85 maps along with changes recorded on paste-on correction slips through 1973. Quarter leather binding with gilt title on front and spine. Small tear to spine of original protective canvas cover. This volume includes Kissena Park and Kissena Lake, Corridor Park, Horace Harding Expressway to the south (the Long Island Expressway) and the Long Island Railroad Northern Line. The Sanborn map collection consists of a uniform series of large scale maps, dating from 1867 to the present depicting the commercial, industrial, and residential sections of some twelve thousand cities and towns in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The maps were designed to assist fire insurance agents in determining the degree of hazard associated with a particular property and therefore show the size, shape and construction of dwellings, commercial buildings, and factories as well as fire walls locations of windows and doors, sprinkler systems, and types of roofs. The maps also indicate widths and names of streets, property boundaries, building use, and house and block numbers. They show locations of water mains, giving their dimensions, and of fire alarm boxes and hydrants. Sanborn maps are an unrivaled source of information about the structure and use of buildings in American Cities. The collection includes some fifty thousand editions of fire insurance maps comprising an estimated seven hundred thousand individual sheets. The Library of Congress holdings represent the largest extant collection of maps produced by the Sanborn Map Company. The majority of the maps were acquired by the Library through copyright deposit, but the collection was substantially enriched in 1967 when the Bureau of the Census transferred to the Library of Congress a complete set. The 1,899 loose-leaf binders were particularly noteworthy because they included later editions than those previously acquired by the Library. The Bureau of the Census set of maps had been regularly updated by printed, paste-on corrections supplied by the Sanborn Map Company, whereas the Library of Congress copies were retained in the form in which they were copyrighted.

        ON OUR WAY with the Sotheby's 16 June 1992 auction catalogue

      New York: John Day, (1934). First Edition. Hardcover. Spine sunned, as usual. Very Good in a Very Good dustwrapper supplied from another copy. Original blue cloth. Early issue with errors on pages x and 162 uncorrected and with the errata slip laid in. An important book, the recently elected president's presentation of his plans, referred to as the "New Deal" by the people, to pull America from the pit of the Depression. INSCRIBED and SIGNED on the front free endpaper "For Babe/with love from/Franklin D. Roosevelt." This book sold as lot 273 in Sotheby's 16 June 1992 auction as the personal copy of Marguerite ("Missy") Le Hand, FDR's personal secretary from 1920 until illness forced her retirement in 1942. She worked with FDR both in Albany and at the White House during his first three terms as president, establishing an intimate relationship that many thought, and still think, went beyond friendship. We have uncovered no other instance, however, when FDR referred to her as "Babe." Possibly the recipient was Barbara "Babe" Cushing, the youngest daughter of the famous surgeon, Dr. Harvey Cushing, and later married to CBS tycoon William Paley. Her sister, Betsy, was at this time married to FDR's son, James, and living with him in the White House where she often served as a companion to the lonely president. Possibly, FDR was writing this inscription to the younger sister of his daughter-in-law. The question remains: What was this book doing in the possessions of Missy Le Hand? Is that "e" in "Babe" actually an "s" and this copy is inscribed to Eleanor with FDR's pet name, "Babs," for her? Perhaps we will never have an answer.

        Une main] Eine hand *

      Rascher, Zürich 1934. - Relié toile beige, titrée et décorée d'un motif en sépia, jaquette illustrée de Walter Diggelmann. Un an après l'originale de Grasset déjà, l'un des quelques livres de Ramuz offert en primeur à l'éditeur français, cette version allemande, truffée d'un curieux complément. Qu'on en juge; dédicacé par l'auteur en 1937 à James Aeschlimann, patron de la firme "Avanti", l'ouvrage contient 18 pages anonymes de traduction manuscrite de l'allemand en français, probablement d'après cet exemplaire. Cela équivaut, grosso modo, à une trentaine des pages imprimées de l'édition Grasset, à ceci près par exemple que les derniers feuillets autographes ne correspondent pas au texte français. L'édition allemande aurait-elle donc été traduite directement d'un manuscrit ou d'après une autre version, peut-être de la pré originale publiée dans le périodique Aujourd'hui ? Un petit mystère de plus à verser au dossier. Édition originale, avec mention "Erstes und zweites Tausend".

        Vol. 12 of 29 Atlases of Insurance Maps for Queens. Bayside, Douglas Manor and Douglaston

      Sanborn Map Company, New York 1934 - This volume includes part of Auburndale and Little Neck, the border to Nassau County, Fort Totten, Clearview Golf Course, and the Horace Harding/Clearview Expressways Interchange. The Sanborn map collection consists of a uniform series of large scale maps, dating from 1867 to the present depicting the commercial, industrial, and residential sections of some twelve thousand cities and towns in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The maps were designed to assist fire insurance agents in determining the degree of hazard associated with a particular property and therefore show the size, shape and construction of dwellings, commercial buildings, and factories as well as fire walls locations of windows and doors, sprinkler systems, and types of roofs. The maps also indicate widths and names of streets, property boundaries, building use, and house and block numbers. They show locations of water mains, giving their dimensions, and of fire alarm boxes and hydrants. Sanborn maps are an unrivaled source of information about the structure and use of buildings in American Cities. The collection includes some fifty thousand editions of fire insurance maps comprising an estimated seven hundred thousand individual sheets. The Library of Congress holdings represent the largest extant collection of maps produced by the Sanborn Map Company. The majority of the maps were acquired by the Library through copyright deposit, but the collection was substantially enriched in 1967 when the Bureau of the Census transferred to the Library of Congress a complete set. The 1,899 loose-leaf binders were particularly noteworthy because they included later editions than those previously acquired by the Library. The Bureau of the Census set of maps had been regularly updated by printed, paste-on corrections supplied by the Sanborn Map Company, whereas the Library of Congress copies were retained in the form in which they were copyrighted. Atlas. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Massive elephant folio. Decorative calligraphic titles, indices, and key maps. Contains a set of 91 maps along with changes recorded on paste-on correction slips through 1973. Quarter leather binding with gilt title on front and spine. Medium tear to spine of original protective canvas cover. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Totentanzfigur. Bronze.

      Höhe 48 cm, Tadell. Die Figur stammt aus Familienbesitz. Es handelt sich um einen Bronzeabguss (vermutlich nur ein Abguss) einer jener Figuren, die ca. 1935 photographiert und dann als Mappe herausgegeben wurde. Eine anthroposophisch angehauchte Art, mit dem Totentanzmotiv umzugehen. Fast scheint es sich um einen eurythmische Tanz zu handeln. Der Totentanz ist ein Gemeinschaftswerk von Hans Zimmermann (1897 - 1972) und seiner Frau (verstarb 2001) aus der Zeit um 1930.
