        Autograph letter signed "Lehár Fr" to the celebrated soprano Maria Jeritza

      In blue ink on the verso of a postal card with unidentified motif; printed credits to "Phot. Ing. F Mayer." Dated September 29, 1935. In German (with translation). Lehár thanks his correspondent (who is not named but may be identified by circumstantial evidence as the soprano Maria Jeritza) for her interpretation of the song "Liebe du Himmel auf Erden" (Love, you heaven on earth) from his operetta Paganini. He is looking forward to seeing her as Tosca soon. He announces that he will travel to Paris imminently to attend a performance of his operetta Schön ist die Welt: "Still under the spell of the song 'Liebe du Himmel auf Erden' so wonderfully rendered by you I am writing you this letter, and I thank you cordially for the artistic enjoyment... Early next week I will travel to Paris. Schön ist die Welt is going to be performed at the Theâtre Paisé Lyrique." From the collection of Maria Jeritza. Slightly worn, creased and smudged; faint red ink stains. "Liebe, du Himmel auf Erden" is an aria from Lehár's operetta Paganini (1926), made into a film in 1934. Maria Jeritza performed the song as part of a shortwave broadcast for an American audience in 1935. Lehár's operetta Schön ist die Welt was first performed in 1930 (a revision of his earlier work Endlich allein, 1914). Like other successful composers of the era, Léhar was close to Maria Jeritza (1887-1982), the most celebrated soprano from the final years of the Habsburg empire. She appeared regularly at the Metropolitan Opera in New York from 1921 on.

        Fedorino Gore [Fedorin’s Trouble]

      Leningrad: Ogiz Gos. Detskoi Literatury, 1935 - First and Only Edition Illustrated Thus. Illustrated by N. Lekarenko.Very rare. [8]pp. 15 x 19.5cm. Original twotone illustrated card wraps. Twotone illustrations throughout. Minor toning and rubbing to paper stock, shallow vertical creasing throughout, minor nudging. Light even rubbing to wraps, mild nudging and rubbing to edges, light vertical even scoring to wraps. This long comic poem by Chukovskii quickly became a children’s favourite, was reprinted several dozens of times and illustrated by some of the most outstanding illustrators throughout the Soviet period. Lekarenko, neé Noskovich, was sentenced to five years of hard labour through the fairly heinous Traitor of the Motherland Family Members Article of Law. Her career certainly suffered as a result and it is highly probable that her association caused this particular Chukovskii title to be printed only the one time with her illustrations. Rare, the condition issues are nothing beyond the superficial.More pictures on request.

      [Various locations in and around Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii, 1935. Seventy-eight mounted silver gelatin photographs, either 3 1/2 x 5 1/4 inches or 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches. Oblong octavo photograph album, paper-covered boards, string-bound. Front cover detached, covers and spine chipped. Some album pages chipped, but photographs remain largely untouched. Very good. An absorbing collection of photographs capturing American military life in Hawaii during the first half of the 20th century, with the great majority of the photographs captioned in ink on the album pages. The unnamed photographer and compiler of the photographs apparently served at the Schofield Barracks in Honolulu, as he includes several photographs of the base, including the "Boxing Bowl." He also records other notable locations around Honolulu, including the Waipahu Sugar Mill, the Kilaeua Crater, Japanese Temple, the Mid-Pacific Railway wreck, Kapiolani Park, the Honolulu railway station, Sand Island, the naval destroyer JEANNE D'ARC, Sampans Haleiwa Bay, the Monoa Hotel, the Waipahi Sugar Mill, Diamondhead and Kahala Bay, Waikiki Beach, several shots of volcanoes and lava formations, and more. He even includes a shot of the pack mule he presumably used in his wanderings. Hawaiian photographs are scarce in the market, and continually more desirable, especially with holographic notations, like those present in this intriguing album.

      Sans lieu [Paris], sans nom, sans date [1935]. - ]. Deux volumes in-4 en feuilles sous chemises et étuis toilés muets, 188-244 pages contenant le fac-similé du manuscrit, 57 grandes reproductions contrecollées d'après Fragonard, 114 ornements et culs-de-lampe d'après Chauffard, réhaussés de couleurs. Exemplaire sur vergé d'Arches. D'après le prospectus de souscription (absent dans notre exemplaire), il s'agit de la reproduction, par les soins de Daniel Jacomet, d'un recueil comportant 57 dessins au lavis de Fragonard accompagnant un manuscrit des Contes calligraphié au 18e siècle par Monchaussé. Des 57 dessins originaux de Fragonard, 21 avaient été gravés pour l'édition des Contes de Didot, 1795, 2 volumes in-4. D'après Vicaire IV, 919, les dessins originaux de Fragonard auraient appartenu à la bibliothèque d'Eugène Paillet et, par la suite, à la collection d'Henri Beraldi dont l'ex-libris en cuir rouge est reproduit et collé sur le premier feuillet de notre édition. Sur ce même feuillet on trouve aussi le fac-similé de trois notes manuscrites. Au feuillet suivant, fac-similé de l'ex-libris manuscrit d'Eugène Paillet. L'accord profond qui unit l'illustration de Fragonard à l'esprit du texte de La Fontaine domine de cent coudées la médiocre interprétation d'Eisen [dans l'édition dite des Fermiers généraux]. L'interprétation de Fragonard est la plus intimement liée au texte de La Fontaine et l'on ose affirmer qu'elle reste sans rivale pour cet ouvrage, tant le caractère du peintre, sa bonhomie, sa gaité autant que son goût du plaisir le préparaient, mieux que tout autre, à le traduire.

Spine gently rolled, lightly browned, a very good bright copy in the worn jacket with tape repair to foot of front panel and head of spine onto rear panel, closed tear to foot of spine, another to head of front panel. First edition, first impression of Trumbo's first novel. Eclipse is about a town and its people, written in the social realist style popular during the depression era, it draws on his time living in the small town of Grand Junction, Colorado. Trumbo apparently fell out of favour with the people of his home town due to what they perceived as an overly negative depiction of their lifestyle, "copies of the book were burned and tossed into the Colorado River. For years, the public library could not keep Eclipse on its shelves. If copies were checked out, they never returned". With the publisher's subscription slip laid in.

        I Am Your Brother

      Harcourt, Brace and Company (c.1935), New York - [spine moderately turned, tiny chunk out of cloth of front hinge near base of spine, light soiling to page edges, internally very clean; jacket well-worn with various small tears/creases, minor paper loss at several corners, large chunk missing at base of spine, soiling to rear panel]. Very uncommon novel by a somewhat enigmatic author (who may or may not have died in World War II). Set in London, it tells the story of Julian, a tormented young composer who discovers that his late mother had for years been keeping his monstrously deformed brother (apparently the result of some kind of artificial-insemination experiment gone awry) confined in the attic of their house, feeding him raw meat and reading him fairy stories. After Mom gets hit by a bus, the responsibility for Brother now falls on Julian, who (being of delicate and artistic temperament) is already not exactly the most stable individual on the planet. A very strange novel (described by one writer as "a little like ‘The Dunwich Horror’ with a London setting"), it was quite a sensation in its day, but was apparently never reprinted and is now nearly impossible to find. J. Maclaren-Ross, writing about his encounter with Marlowe in the late 1930s, said the author told him that the novel "originated as a bedtime story told to the children of Sir Roderick and Lady Jones [Enid Bagnold, to whom the book is dedicated] while staying with them in the country." The author also spent a little time in Hollywood in the mid-1930's, where he made some minor (uncredited) contributions to the screenplay of DAVID COPPERFIELD. This may not be an especially pretty example of the rare dust jacket, but at least the ultra-creepy front-panel illustration is intact. (Note that while the jacket art is uncredited -- unless the artist's signature appears on a piece that's now missing -- it seems obviously the work of Rex Whistler.)

        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.

        The Note-Book. Called the Rossetti Manuscript. Edited by Geoffrey Keynes.

      London: The Nonesuch Press, 1935 - Octavo. Original blue buckram, title label to spine, grey endpapers, top edge gilt. With the dust jacket. A superb copy with the jacket only slightly creased at the extremities and with three closed tears. First edition thus, number 29 of 650 copies, with the very scarce dust jacket.

Selections from the manuscript, with some over-liberal alterations, were published in Gilchrist's Life of Blake 1863, but it was only when the great Blake scholar Geoffrey Keynes had it photographed in full in 1924 that "an accurate and final text" was published in the Nonesuch Press edition of Blake's Writings in 1925. This edition presents the full text, with its many integrated drawings, for the first time in photographic (as well as letterpress) facsimile. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Handwritten diary and daily planner for February 1935

      Knihtiskárna Prometheus, Prague 1935 - 12mo (12.8 × 8.9 cm). Staple-stitched printed wrappers; 42 leaves, printed rectos and versos. Filled out in ink and pencil. Very good. Small daily planner for February 1935 of Otakar Mrkvi?ka (1898-1957), the Czech painter, illustrator, art critic and editor, one of the founding members of the Czech avant-garde group Dev?tsil. Mrkvi?ka was a key figure of Czech avant-garde life, designing many constructivist wrapper designs by himself as well as collaboratively with Karel Teige (1900-1951). In the 1930s, he primarily worked on his paintings, produced numerous political and satirical caricatures and worked as an editor of the newspaper "Lidové noviny." The planner features numerous holograph notes about Mrkvi?ka's daily appointments, payments received, as well as longer diary entries and notes for planned works. Apart from more mundane records, he describes readings, gatherings and all-night parties with notable contemporaries such as Josef ?apek, Karel Nový, Vladislav Van?ura, and Eduard Bass. February 1935 was also important due to Mrkvi?ka's journey to Moscow, which he describes on numerous pages. Given his central role in Czech avant-garde graphic design and intellectual life in the 1920s, it is striking that Mrkvi?ka's life and work are relatively little documented. Included is Mrkvi?ka's personal calling card, listing him as a painter and editor of "Lidové noviny" [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Housed in a custom clamshell box. $2800.First edition, second printing issued one year after the first, of RothÂ’s magnum opus, in scarce colorful unrestored dust jacket.“One of the ‘greatest achievements of American writing this century” Henry RothÂ’s magisterial novel about David Schearl, a young Jewish immigrant in turn-of-the-century New York, is also hailed as the finest Jewish-American novel of the age (Parker & Kermode, 181). Critic Robert Alter describes “Call It Sleep as ‘together with The Sound and the FuryÂ…. the fullest American assimilation of Joyce.” It is a timeless work both poetic and profoundly honest in its shifting rhythms of Yiddish, English and Polish. “If David is a Jewish Ulysses,Â’ writes Murray Baumgarten, ‘he is also a Yiddish Stephen Daedalus” (Wirth-Nesher, 77-8). On publication, Call It Sleep received high praise but was neglected for decades. In 1956, however, Alfred Kazin and Leslie Fielder both cited his novel at a symposium on unfairly ignored American writing, and by 1964 a new edition became a bestseller, praised by Irving Howe as a luminous work with “the quality of a dream and, if it describes a world of vivid fragments, it also evokes with relentless accuracy the gigantic fears, extreme attachments and dreadful misconceptions of childhood” (Parker and Kermode, 181). Second printing; second-state dust jacket with Minneapolis Star blurb. Text fresh and clean, light foxing, minor spine toning to original cloth; scarce colorful unrestored dust jacket with slight edge-wear, chipping to spine ends affecting “Call” and publisherÂ’s name. A highly desirable extremely good copy.
