        Ideas of Order

      New York, The Alcestis Press, 1935. 63 p., 1 leaf; 24 cm. Edelstein A2.a quotes a Stevens letter to Latimer: "The book has just arrived and gives me the greatest possible pleasure. It must have taken no end of time and put you and Mr. [Willard] Maas to no end of trouble. But here it is, and it strikes me, quite regardless of its contents, as being a very good job. Too bad that I can't read it. Of course if I were to read any of these things again I should jump out of my skin." "Let me say this: you have been generous in sending me ten copies, and while that seems to have been our agreement, I had forgotten it until Mr. Ney reminded me of it. The chances are that you cannot possibly come out whole, even if you sold the whole edition without difficulty and received the full price for each copy. If I am right about this, and my guess is that I am, don't think of sending me any money. The book is a handsome piece of work, and as it probably will be your first book I should be very glad to go along with you without any royalties or anything of the sort. In fact, it would jolt me to think of royalties under the circumstances." // "This first edition... is strictly limited to 165 copies, signed by the author. Twenty copies, numbered I-XX, are printed on Duca di Modena, an Italian handmade paper, for presentation purposes; 135 copies, numbered 1-135 on Strathmore permanent all-rag paper, are for sale, and 10 copies, marked out of series, are for review." This copy of Ideas of Order has Roman numeral V and Stevens's signature, a calligraphic nightmare which I took to be "Lanac Drumm," one of his "ghostlier demarcations". Inscribed on the second front blank "To S. Foster Damon / who combined kind / deeds with kind / words / J R L Latimer." // Included with the book is Alcestis: A Poetry Quarterly, Vol. I, No. 1, October, 1934 (Edelstein B88; 'Alcestis' only lasted through four numbers), in which were first published eight Stevens poems (the Table of Contents says seven) including The Idea of Order at Key West. This copy of Alcestis is inscribed, on the first page, "To Ernie from Foster." // The two items are protected in a clamshell case made by Jim Dimarcantonio of Hope Bindery. Ideas of Order is in its original glassine jacket which has part missing from the spine; edges of the tan paper covers of Alcestis are slightly chipped; both are in lovely condition. Stock#OB987.

        Autograph letter signed ("Freud").

      [Vienna], 5. XI. 1935. - 4to. 2 pp. On stationery printed "Prof. Dr. Freud Wien, IX., Berggasse 19". To Stefan Zweig, about the Nobel Prize, Shakespeare, and his "Moses and Monotheism", thanking him for his letter and for the cutting from the Sunday Times, observing that his article is the declaration of a friend, noting his surprise to learn that he has been awarded the Nobel Prize on the promptings of the Vienna University, referring to the opposition to him when he was awarded the Frankfurt Goethe Prize in 1930, reproaching himself for expatiating during his visit on the contents of his Moses, instead of letting him talk about his work and plans, stating that Moses shall never see the light of day again, concluding in a postscript by asking him whether he is interested in the debate concerning the identity of Shakespeare, and admitting that he is virtually convinced that Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford, was in fact Shakespeare. - Despite the views expressed by Freud here, "Der Mann Moses und die monotheistische Religion", his last completed book, was in fact published four years later, in 1939. Although nominated twelve times for the Nobel Prize for Medicine, Freud was never awarded that honour, the Nobel committee being of the opinion that his work was of no proven scientific value. Romain Rolland's nomination of him for the Literature Prize in 1936 was also unsuccessful. - Horizontal fold, some light creasing and slight damage to edges.

        [Photo Album]: Photo Strips Recording Baby's First Years Beginning in 1935

      1935 - 1937. Oblong octavo measuring 7" x 10". String-tied brown leather over paper boards with "Photographs" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains 85 sepia-toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs, many of which are printed as photo strips, measuring between 1.5" x 1.5" and 4" x 6", with some captions. Album is very good with tiny chips and edgewear with near fine photographs.A collection of photographs documenting the first two years of a child's life beginning at six weeks in 1935. Roughly half of the photos are printed as photo strips and are mounted in the album in their completed form. Many of the other photos are small format prints as well as images that have been separated from their original strips. The photos show the newborn throughout the years of 1935 to 1937, when he is listed as 2 1/2 years old. Throughout the album he is held and pampered by family and friends as he grows into a little boy. The fact that his early years were heavily documented in photo strip prints is unusual as is the volume of this style of prints collected into a single album, especially as the technology and popularity of the strips was relatively new.The first time a photo booth machine was introduced to the public was at the Paris World's fair in 1889. Although it was a success, the concept wouldn't take widespread popularity until 1925 with the invention of the curtain-closed booth we know today by Russian immigrant Anatol Josepho. It was set up on Broadway in New York City and in the first six months saw around 280,000 visitors. A March 1927 headline of The New York Times read: "Slot Photo Device Brings $1,000,000 to Young Inventor." These photos represent the first decade of modern photo strip prints.An interesting accumulation of early photo strip prints which have been collected in a large quantity in a single album. .

        HISTORY OF HERODOTUS OF HALICARNASSUS. The Translation of G. Rawlinson Revised and Annotated by A. W. Lawrence...To which is added a Life of Herodotus and the Behistun Inscription

      Bloomsbury: The Nonesuch Press, 1935. LIMITED EDITION, one of only 675 numbered copies. Illustrated with 9 large wood-engravings by V. Le Campion, one colour plate, and 9 double-page maps by T. Poulton. Printed in Nonesuch Plantin with Perpetua and Felicity italic types. Folio, publisher?s original half blue vellum over blue cloth, the spine lettered and elaborately decorated in gilt designs which follow to the turnovers , t.e.g. xxvi, 778 pp. A fine copy, internally very much so, clean and fresh and solid, the binding in excellent condition with just a hint of the age evidence or mellowing one expects with the blue vellum used in binding this title, but without any of the bowing typical to the book. An handsome and quite well preserved copy, near as pristine tight and without apparent use. LIMITED EDITION, AND ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MODERN PRINTINGS of the Greek historian. This is very pleasing copy: the gilt is brilliant, the boards are not bowed as is usual, and the volume is clean throughout. In all likelihood this particular copy has never been read. Herodotus, the Greek historian was often called the "father of history" due to his systematic collection of sources and his attempt at intellectual rigor. His merits were "...the diligence with which he collected his materials, the candour and impartiality with which he has placed his facts before the reader, the absence of party bias and undue national vanity, and the breadth of his conception of the historian?s office." His work represents the first significant Greek writing and covers the struggle between Asia and Europe, ending in the Persian invasion of Greece (490 to 479 BC).

        Small archive of material related to John Hays Hammond Jr. including signed letters and a detailed biographical article by Janet Mabie

      [ Gloucester Massachusetts and others ]: [ self published ], 1935. First Edition. Unbound. Near Fine. First Edition. An archive of material related to American Inventory John Hays Hammond, Jr. The archive includes 4 letters to Janet Mabie (of Eaton Centre, New Hampshire) all from 1935. 2 comment on a Mr. Lear "who curiously enough is in the same situation that I am in regard to the Navy and foreign patents. Perhaps we may be able to work together to break up this ridiculous threat upon the part of the Navy Department." The other 2 related to Miss Mabie gathering notes for "magazine use" and Hammond setting up a meeting between Mabie and Herbert Stone of Yachting magazine. In addition to these letters, there is an 8 page carbon typescript (8 1/2 x 11 inches) about Hammond by Mabie that is quite interesting, giving insights into Hammond as a person and inventor. It is a fascinating read, and no doubt would add (if not published, which we have not been able to confirm one way or the other) to the portrait of Hammond known today. Lastly the archive contains 2 black and white photographs of portions of Hammond's Castle in Gloucester Mass, called Abbadia Mare. Hammond built this eclectic mansion, which stands still today as a museum. Unbound. Hammond was an American Inventor with a large number of patents, second only to Edison himself. His work was very eclectic, although he was perhaps best known for his work in radio controlled operation of various kinds. Some have termed him the Father of Radio Control.

      1935. Oblong small quarto. Cord-tied cloth board decoratively printed with a geometric pattern; tissue guard for each page. Just about fine. The album contains 44 mounted black and white gelatin silver photographs, with another 23 similar images laid in, for a total of 67 photographs. Titled in neat white album ink inside the front board, else the images are uncaptioned, but many of the images have additional signage within the image that would probably reward further research as to the exact location. Apparently meant to commemorate the opening of a German fabric and fashion store. The fascinating images are riotously stylized, with many featuring particularly modernist (or perhaps surrealistic) or creepy looking mannequins, all in service of the elaborate displays of clothing or fabrics, mostly it seems, for women's clothing. .

      1935. MATISSE, Henri. Ulysses. By James Joyce. [xvii], 363, [3] pp. Illustrated with 6 soft-ground etchings and 20 reproductions hors texte on papers of different colour and size by Henri Matisse. Folio, 298 x 230 mm, bound in publisher's brown cloth, in a new blue cloth folding box. New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1935. |~||~||~||~||~| Limited to 1500 copies signed by Matisse. The Matisse Ulysses, designed by George Macy for members of The Limited Editions Club, is the most famous book from the LEC list. "The text of this edition was based on that of the Odyssey Press edition, second impression, and is therefore the most accurate text of Ulysses that has been published in the United States" (Slocum and Cahoon). It is interesting to note that Matisse chose to illustrate the Homeric subtext of Joyce's story rather than the novel's Dublin setting. Matisse found that Joyce's text was too difficult to translate visually, and so sought to capture the book's spirit instead. This, he felt, was best conveyed by classical images in shades of grey. Matisse also decided to include his preparatory drawings for the six etchings, reproduced on coloured papers, to add heft and colour to the book. The present volume is also one of the very few American livres de peintres issued before WWII. The Limited Editions Club Ulysses includes the only prints of Matisse published in America, and represent Matisse's only use of soft-ground etching. Signed by Matisse on the colophon. Duthuit 6.

This may have been a merger or partnership with the 19th century Paris globe maker G. Thomas. - from \"Modelle der Welt\")Gllobe is completely from glas and is cased in brass which weights quite heavy with 12 printed paper gores pasted on it. Globe diameter is 14 inch (34 cm) and the total hight is 21,6 inch (55 cm).Condition report: some small parts of the printed paper gores missing. A small piece at the legend, a piece of about 2.5-3 cm in front of brasil and a small one in the Atlantic Ocean. Overall the globe is in remarkably good condition for its age and knowing that antique glas globes are extremely rare. I have been dealing with globes for the last 6 years and this is only the second time I have a old glass globe before 1940.Iran is already mentioned on the globe which means the globe must be after 1935, but Siam is still mentioned, which makes the date of the globe somewhere between 1935-1939.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1935 - 1935 Wisden - Original Hardback

      1935. Hi, This lot is an Original 1935 Wisden Hardback. This lot is in just good condition, the era of 1933 to 1937 were not the best of hardbacks as Wisden swapped materials in 1933, it resulted in poorer quality books and a pain in many colletions. The Boards are very dark and the gilt is faded to the spine and starting to fade to the front, inside the pastedowns are nice and yellow. Internally it is nice, a bit read, hinges and photoplate good, line to spine, a decent enough Wisden but better out there. More Photos on request. Payment: Cheque

      Washington, 1935. Original cloth. A fine copy. In a cloth slipcase. One of the great rarities of Western Americana printed in the 20th century, issued in a small edition by an obscure Washington publisher in the midst of the Depression. Carter's book is one of the primary sources for the Indian wars on the South Plains. "This is one of the best sources on the Federal cavalry campaigns against the Indians in the 1870's" - Jenkins. "The most complete account of the Indian wars on the Texas frontier in the Seventies" - Jeff Dykes. After serving in the ranks in the Civil War, and graduating from West Point in 1870, Carter was stationed at Fort Concho. He spent the next five years in the midst of some of the most ferocious Indian fighting in the West, until a wound forced him to retire in 1876. His commanding officer, Gen. Ranald Mackenzie, was one of the legendary cavalry commanders of the time. Carter's stories, told in an outspoken narrative, are extraordinarily interesting, despite his somewhat hackneyed style and large basket of prejudices, which are distributed freely over the narrative (he was especially bitter about his treatment by the War Office after being disabled). Carter published several sections of this book as pamphlets in very small editions for distribution to friends, evidently before deciding to undertake the larger book. All of those pamphlets are extremely rare, and together constitute only part of the present work. Carter died the year after the book's publication, and the unsold edition may have been disposed of by the publisher. In any case, it is both important and very rare.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED with a Signed Photograph Both in the Hand of Screen Legend Lionel Barrymore

      Culver City, CA.: [unpublished], circa 1935. A personal letter from Lionel Barrymore to Mr. [Louis] Mayer written on Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studio stationery mounted with a handsome photograph of the actor inscribed ?Best Wishes? and signed in his hand. Letter size stationery and 8? by 10? photo, handsomely mounted with buff board trimmed in blue and gold, framed in a tasteful burnished gold frame, glazed. All together approximately 15.5? by 21?. 1 page and photograph. Both in a fine state of preservation. A remarkable piece of American motion picture history. A personal letter between one of the greatest film actors of all time and perhaps the most important man in Hollywood?s long career. Lionel Barrymore was a member of the finest acting family in recent history with notable members from his parents generation ?til this very day. He stands out even in this great family and is remembered as one of film?s greatest actors. Barrymore starred in over 200 films, most of which where made at M.G.M. studios. He also wrote, directed and produced films for the studio. Barrymore was the winner of an Academy Award for best actor and was nominated for best director. Louis Mayer was co-founder of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios which would soon after become the largest and most important studio of all time. They would produce for over 50 years a majority of America?s most beloved and highest grossing films. In this fascinating letter Barrymore explains that he is writing because it is impossible for him to get off the set (not surprising with over 200 films under his belt) and also that he doesn?t want to take to much of Mayer?s time with ?so many others waiting?. Barrymore then goes on to make the unusual request that the studio give him a full month?s payment of his salary instead of his usual payments. He states that this would be an ?immeasurable help? and he mentions owing money.

        Green Hills Of Africa

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1935 Decorated by Edward Shenton. First edition, first printing. Publisher's bright green cloth, with Hemingway's signature stamped to the front board in gilt, black spine labels, lettered and decorated in gilt; in the original black and green dust jacket, lettered in white. Very good, with some toning to the spine and board edges, bright gilt, a few faint spots to the endpapers, otherwise fresh interior; unclipped dust jacket, with some rubbing and minor chipping to the extremities, fading to the spine as usual, some creasing and light rubbing to the otherwise fresh panels. Overall, a tight and very presentable copy. Hanneman A13a. Originally published serially in Scribner's Magazine, Green Hills of Africa is Hemingway's second non-fiction book, based on his 1933 safari in East Africa. The text is divided into four parts: "Pursuit and Conversation," "Pursuit Remembered," "Pursuit and Failure," and "Pursuit as Happiness." In a similar style to his first non-fiction work, Death in the Afternoon, Hemingway interweaves his recounts of hunting various animals with his vehement criticisms of contemporary authors. As John Chamberlain wrote in his 1935 review for The New York Times, "With one hand he tears out the entrails of a gazelle and strips the skin clean; with the other he rips the hide from Malcom Cowley or Waldo Frank. It is the most literary hunting trip on record.". Illus. by Shenton, Edward. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included.
