        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.

        It's a Battlefield

      London: Heinemann. (1934). An early book by Greene, his fifth, and the one he considered to be his "first overtly political novel." Notably, he considered it to be a "novel" rather than an "entertainment," as he characterized a good many of his books. In 1948, Greene extensively revised this title for its third edition, meaning that a relatively small number of copies exist with the original text as first published. Tape shadows to endpages, cracked at rear hinge, text block shaken; a very good copy in a very good, second issue dust jacket (3/6 price) with rubbing and minor wear to the edges and folds, a short tear to the front flap fold, and tape strengthening to the edges on the verso. An early, important book and extremely scarce in any dust jacket at all. . Hardcover.

        CAPRI NEL SEICENTO. DOCUMENTI E NOTE. NAPOLI, TRANI, 1934.

      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.

        Seven Gothic Tales.

      Putnam, London 1934. Second impression. Frontispiece by Rex Whistler. 522 pages. Orig. burgundy cloth with gilt lettering on the spine. No dust wrappers. Very good++. Spine slightly faded, and some minor signs of use.. First English edition, second impression. The American edition is the true first edition. The author's first book.** Inscribed in Danish by the author on front endpaper: "Til (i.e. "to") Bertha 15 Oktober 1943 fra (i.e. "from") ID". *** Inscribed copies of Karen Blixen's first book are extremely scarce. The American (true) first edition of "Seven Gothic Tales" was published on April 9th 1934, while the British edition came out on September 9th 1934, quickly followed by a second impression. The Danish version, "Syv fantastiske Fortællinger", translated by the author herself, was published on September 25th 1934, also under the pseudonym isak Dinesen. Dinesen was Karen Blixen's original last name, which she changed when marrying Swedish baron Blixen in January 1914. The first name Isak was chosen due to the biblical references: Karen Blixen later declared, that she was fascinated by the Old Testament tale of Sara who laughed when God himself predicted that she would give birth to a son, Isaac ("he who laughs").**** The immediate success of this book, obviously written by a Danish author, caused much stir in Denmark. On April 22nd 1934, the American publisher revealed the true identity of Isak Dinesen. However, this information came out in the Danish press about a week later and caused another sensation. Karen Blixen was world famous from about day 1. Later she used the pseudonym Isak Dinesen in almost all English language editions of her works

      Toronto: McClelland & Stewart, 1934, 1st Edition, 1st Printing -----------hardcover, red cloth, a Near Fine copy, in a lovely Good/Very Good text design dustjacket with some shallow chipping and a few closed tears, a wee bit of age toning to the spine of the jacket (and I do mean wee), a sticker has been placed over the price on the front flap but careful examination with abright light reveals a 1.50 price tag, incredibly rare in any dustjacket, this is the variant jacket (with text only) of the more often seen pictorial dustjacket edition, no priority has been established but all dustjacketed copies are rare, ---the pictorial dustjacketed copies are in a reddish-orange cloth and are slightly taller than this variant issue, ----as per the Lucy Maud Montgomery bibliography by Frank and Juanita Lechowick this copy is in maroon cloth (I'd call it red but who am I to quibble), as well this has the ruled line on the copyright page, red stain to upper edge of text block as called for, 19.6 cm tall (versus 20.9 cm on the red-orange issue) ---no priority established between the two issues but it is difficult to imagine McClelland and Stewart producing this with a pictorial dustjacket for the first "run" and then finding demand high and issuing it with a text jacket, it SEEMS much more likely that unexpected demand for the book with the text dustjacket would lead M&S to issue further copies with a more visually appealing pictorial dj ---and of course, if the pictorial jacket had been used on the first production run why change it all?, a very scarce book but especially so in dustjacket, the Lechowick bibliography states that there is one recorded copy of this title in this text design dustjacket ---now two copies are known but I guess there are other copies out there burrowed away in some little hidey-hole, -----contents include: The Maid of France: Joan of Arc; The Angel of the Crimea: Florence Nightingale; The Great White Ma: Mary Slessor of Calabar; A Brave Deed: Laura Secord; Happiness in a Log Cabin: Catharine Parr Traill; A Noble Girl Queen: Queen Victoria; Courage in Danger: Madeleine De Vercheres; From Darkness to Light: Helen Keller; A Friend of the School: Ada May Courtice; The Golden Chrysanthemum: Caroline MacDonald; A Loyal Pioneer of the West: Elizabeth Louise Mair; Caring for Indians: Anna J Gaudin; A War Heroine: Edith Cavell; Braving the White North: Sadie Stringer; Canada's Queen of Song: Madame Albani; The Princess of the Paddle: ( Tekakionwake ) E Pauline Johnson; A Leader in Education: Aletta Elise Marty; A Pupil at School: Dr Margaret MacKellar; A Daughter of the Empire: Margaret Polson Murray; Service for Others: Lady Tilley; Champion of Dumb Animals: Marshall Saunders, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo .

        Whisky

      New York: Duffield & Green, 1934. Octavo, 135 pages. First US edition. Perhaps the greatest whisky book ever written. Charles Maclean, my favorite current authority on the matter of whisky, wrote, "If I could take one whisky book to a desert island, it would be Aeneas MacDonald's Whisky. It is a shining gem of a book - polemic, passionate, provocative, poetic; romantic (nothing wrong with that); beautifully written; so amusing in places that I laugh out loud, yet so well-informed that I long suspected its author to have been a distiller or exciseman." Aeneas MacDonald is a nom de plume, and the identity of the author of Whisky, has long been debated, but Ian Buxton, in his introduction to a modern reprint of the books, reveals it to be George Malcolm Thompson, founder of the Porpoise Press. With the bookseller ticket of the James W. Robinson Co., of Los Angeles on the rear paste-down, and a receipt from the original purchase at that shop laid-in. Some offsetting from the receipt to a final blank page, other wise, truly fine, in a fine dust jacket.
