        Voluptes de Paris

      Paris: Paris Publications, 1935. First edition. Very good; the plastic rings that served as a binding are missing, hence loose pages. Some pages showing some slight edgewear, toning, but overall a sturdy, well preserved copy. Brassai's most elusive publication. There were two editions of this title; while priority is by no means certain, in the text of the exhibition catalog "Brassai: The Eye of Paris," curator Anne Tucker has the first edition as having 48 pages and 46 halftone reproductions, as does this copy. Tucker has the edition with 38 halftones as the second. While certainly a candidate for restoration, more than servicable as it presently stands, and of course excessively rare.

Fine in a very good price-clipped dust jacket with some wear and tear to the extremities. In 1931 Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh set off on a flight to the Orient by the Great Circle Route. The classic North to the Orient is the beautifully written account of the trip. Their voyage took them from College Point, Long Island, to Alaska, then by way of St. Lawrence Island to Siberia, Kamchatka, and Japan. From Osaka, where they discovered a stowaway in the plane, they crossed the Yellow Sea to China and went up the Yangtze River to Nanking, where they brought aid to flood refugees.

        Alain Campbell White Letters to Frederick Gamage

      Alain Campbell White letters to Frederick Gamage cover the years from April 4, 1935 to September 15, 1944. For this ten year period there are 364 dated letters and 28 incomplete letters (lacking front date page). The letters are an ongoing correspondence between White and Gamage which covers all aspects of problem chess. The letters show a development of mentor (White), encouraging ad occasionally prodding his protégé (Gamage) in developing skills in problem construction. As the letters progress over this ten year period, the reader can observe the relationship develop between the two men, from a formal intercourse to a more comradely banter. White offered suggestions, comments and themes for problems. White?s vast and profound technical knowledge, his artistic appreciation, his ability in expressing himself, and his enthusiastic and friendly encouragement were the great inspiration of many problems Gamage constructed, and he was lucky enough to be among his host of correspondents. Some of the letters were multiple pages hand typed, but often hand written, some unsigned or just initialed, usually with the location White was residing and the date written. Included with the letters are the limited edition work by Alain White on Gamage Frederick Gamage: An Artist in Chess Problems and Mike Prcic?s book Frederick Gamage. The letters in the latter work have been reproduced from the original letters offered now.Newman Guttman was one of a few problemists to visit Frederick Gamage. After the passing of Gamage, the letters from Alain White along with Gamage?s other chess papers were given to Guttman. He, in turn, gave these papers to Edgar Holladay. Holladay came into the possession of what problemists would consider as "treasures," one-of-a-kind items from famous and well-known problemists. Robert Moore and Holladay were good friends and these were passed to him by Holladay?s wife, Rita.Serious buyers may inquire about more information regarding this collection.Condition:The letters have folds for postage, some occasional stains, and occasional edge wear else a very good collection. They are housed in individual archival holders held in a multiple three ring binders.

        Peaceful Village, Vintage Japanese Painted Paper Panel, Mid-Twentieth Century. Large, with Vintage Frame. Zen art.

      unknown, no place 1935 - Fine vintage painting in Very Good vintage frame. Large; outside frame dimensions are 36" x 30". See scanned images. The painting has been identified as a likely early-to-mid-twentieth century Japanese Painted Paper Panel; it is executed on an Old Gold-hued material with a silk-like appearance (though it is probably a type of paper), impregnated with occasional gold glitter flecks. The border is Old Gold color silk brocade. Subject is a peaceful rural village, and it's one which has a remarkably tranquilizing effect when it is studied in solitude; hence, may have been executed in a Zen spirit. The combination of that spirit with an oddly gold-luminous appearance in certain lighting from certain angles, and its large size, yields a rather unique experience for the viewer, at times. It hangs here now, in my residence, by itself. The artist is as yet unidentified, but there is a signature, along with a Han character, at the lower left, beneath the tree trunk (see scans). The frame seems to have an early twentieth century aspect; that frame is in just Very Good condition, with occasional small areas of spiderweb cracking, and its original reverse-side brown-papering having been mostly removed, leaving just peripheral fragments there. Overall a piece which is remarkable in its unique "feel". Please see scans. Lartclst-wl

        [Op. 24]. Dance Sonata [for piano]. Autograph musical manuscript signed in full

      May 8, 1935. Folio (261 x 330 mm). Full black cloth boards with octagonal cut-paper manuscript title label to upper bordered in black. 1f. (dedication), 30, [xvi] (blank) pp. Notated in ink on 12-stave printed music paper, "Beethoven Papier No. 31," issued by "H.R.Kr." With autograph dedication: "To Harrison Potter in sincere and appreciative friendship from Marion Bauer - Mar[ch] 9th 1935 -." Autograph signature to p. 1, to right above first staff of music: "Marion Bauer op. 24." Autograph note at conclusion: "This copy was completed, May 8th, 1935." Label with typed poem by Marion Bauer, "My Manuscript," laid down to dedication, "to be sung to the tune of 'The Rosary.' '' An autograph footnote, "with apologies to Robert Cameron Rogers and Ethelbert Nevin," acknowledges the the authors of "The Rosary," a once highly popular song composed in 1898. Overpaste to second staff of p. 29, written over in ink by the composer. From the collection of the American pianist Virginia Eskin. With numerous corrections (especially to tempo and dynamics) and annotations (including custos notes and fingerings) in pencil throughout, possibly in the Eskin's hand. Upper board slightly worn, rubbed, bumped and stained; small area of loss to left edge of label not affecting titling. Creases to outer corners.. Bauer composed her Dance Sonata in 1932. The present manuscript, (without the annotations), served as the original for a limited facsimile edition published in 1952; WorldCat lists four copies only, all in the U.S. As its name suggests, the three-movement work is driven by dance rhythms. The second movement is titled "Sarabande and Variations." The brand "Beethoven Papier" was apparently of German origin and widely used in the early twentieth century, but its manufacturers-there were several over the years-always appear with their initials only and have not been identified to date. "[Bauer] studied in Portland, Oregon, and in Paris and Berlin, her teachers including Boulanger, Gedalge, Huss and Pugno. During twelve Summers between 1919 and 1944 she visited the MacDowell Colony where she produced many of her compositions and met other important women composers including Amy Beach, Mabel Daniels, Miriam Gideon and Ruth Crawford. Bauer taught music history and composition at New York University (1926-51), was affiliated with the Juilliard School of Music from 1940 until her death and lectured widely. She was a champion of American music and modern composers... Also recognized were her influence as a music critic and her intellectual approach to new music." J. Michele Edwards in Grove online

"The idea of composing a full-length opera based on DuBose Heyward's novel Porgy about life among the black inhabitants of 'Catfish Row' in Charleston, South Carolina, first occurred to Gershwin when he read the book in 1926. After many delays, Heyward and the Gershwin brothers signed a contract in October 1933 with the Theatre Guild in New York, and the collaboration was under way. Gershwin began the score in February 1934; during most of the next summer he stayed in South Carolina, composing and absorbing local colour. By early 1935 the composition was finished, and Gershwin spent the next several months orchestrating the work." Richard Crawford in Grove online

        Death in the Clouds

      London, Collins. 1935. , 1935. FIRST EDITION, INSCRIBED by the author to flyleaf "With Love from / Agatha." Pp.252 + 4 [advertisements]. Publisher's orange cloth titled in black, some light fading to the spine and the customary slight wear to extremities and spine ends. A little dusty to the top-edge. In a supplied second issue (i.e repriced at 3/6) wrapper, whicxh remains in a splendid degree of preservation, a trifle frayed at head of spine but resplendant with the vivid blues and bright white decoration that all too often are soiled and darkened by both the passage of time and repeated readings of stories that have become classics of the mystery genre. Altogether a lovely addition to any serious collection of Agatha Christie. In the book, Poirot is a passenger on board a flight from Paris to Croydon. Some time before landing, one of the passengers, Madame Giselle - a moneylender - is found dead. Initially, a reaction to a wasp sting is postulated, but Poirot spies the true cause of death: a poison-tipped dart, apparently fired from a blowpipe. It becomes apparent that the victim has been murdered.

        Kitabi Bahriye [The Book of the Sea]

      Istanbul: Devlet Basimevi,, 1935. Quarto (320 × 220 mm). Original blue boards, envelope flap with fore-edge panel lettered in gilt, elaborate floral design to boards and flap in blind, red and green endbands, green endpapers. Plate with tipped-in colour reproduction of the surviving fragment of Piri Reis's first map behind tissue guard, two further cartographic plates including one of his second map; facsimile with copious maps and charts to the text. A little rubbed overall with light cockling and a couple of pale marks to spine, leaves toned. A very good copy. Facsimile edition of Piri Reis's immense account of Mediterranean seafaring and the first printed appearance of the work in Turkish, following a German translation in 1927. Derived from a single manuscript found in the library of Hagia Sophia, Istanbul (MS 2612) over 850 pages in length, the facsimile of the Ottoman text is accompanied by an extensive preface and index in modern Turkish. Piri Reis, originally a privateer probably born in Gallipoli in 1465, was recruited to the Ottoman navy with the rank of admiral and "soon established himself as a scholar of navigational science … in 1513 he constructed the first of his two world maps … In 1521 he assembled his navigational notes, charts and coastal views into a book, and in 1526 presented a revised version of it to Sultan Süleyman the Magnificent". The scope of his findings extended across the Atlantic: "Many of the references and charts of the American coast were acquired from a Spanish sailor whose ship was captured during a naval campaign against Venice in 1501. Piri's map of 1513 bears a long passage describing Columbus' first voyage … A reading of the date 890 on the map for [this] voyage (corresponding to 1485-6, rather than 1492) has led at least one scholar to point to an early unrecorded voyage by the navigator to the New World". This map was only discovered - in fragmentary form - while the Topkapi palace was being converted to a museum in 1929. Piri Reis produced a second world map in 1528 (likewise only extant in fragment) before eventually being beheaded on charges of desertion in 1554.

"Throughout 1935, when Robert Graves and Laura Riding were almost wholly occupied with the lists of projects they envisioned being produced by the Seizin Press... they began a project they called Focus, which has been referred to as a "newsletter" of the circle of friends most closely associated with Riding and Graves, and who filtered in and out of Deyá for regular visits... [it] contained some very interesting poetry, and contains many short essays" (John Woodrow Presley, Focus: An Extended Bibliographical Description, Robert Graves Critical Studies 273).

        Tortilla Flat

      New York: Covici Friede, (1935). First edition. original sand coloured cloth, thin blue line across covers, lettered in blue, top edges stained blue. Very, very slight difference in brown pigmentation on cloth at lower spine; fine/pictorial dust jacket (spine lightly sunned, spine ends a little nicked with very slight loss of paper, tear in front spine fold, not price clipped. Octavo. Above the town of Monterey on the California coast lies the shabby district of Tortilla Flat, inhabited by a colorful gang whose revels recall the exploits of King Arthur's knights. Soft-hearted, unquestioningly loyal to one another, and in complete disregard of social conventions and expectations, the gutsy denizens of Tortilla Flat cheerfully reside in a world of idyllic poverty. "The extraordinary humors of these curiously childlike natives are presented with a masterly touch." — William Rose Benét [Goldstone and Payne A14].

        Collection of 1 autograph manuscript signed ("Beatrix Potter") and 1 autograph letter signed ("H.B. Heelis"). Together with: The Peter Rabbit Music Books. Book I. Six Easy Pieces for Pianoforte by Christopher Le Fleming.

      London, J. & W. Chester, Frederick Warne & Co., 1935.. 17, (3) pp. Publisher's original full-colour illustrated wrappers; a line drawing by Potter at the head of each song. ALS: Castle Cottage, Sawry, Ambleside, 18 Aug. 1935. Large 4to. 1 p. AMsS: n. p., [December 1935]. 8vo. 1 p.. Charming minor archive documenting this slim volume of music and the final stage of an extraordinary career. Beatrix Potter was 69 years old when she undertook this joint project, for which Le Fleming composed the music and she herself contributed illustrations and a brief foreword. The original manuscript of the latter, containing several autograph corrections, is preserved here: "The rippling melody of this pretty music calls back many little friends. Again the Puddle-Ducks pass: pit pat paddle pat; white kittens, squirrels, rabbits, frisk and gambol. Tiddly widdly widdly! Mrs. Tittlemouse with a mop follows the big dirty footprints of Mr. Jackson. And Lucie sips her tea, while dear Mrs. Tiggy heats her smoothing iron. Good luck to the merry company of Christopher Le Fleming's tuneful numbers, and to those luckly little People who will learn to play them some day! [...]". Also included is an unpublished letter by Potter to the composer, in which she complains of tremors in her hand: "I too have been away for a very brief holiday and more than ever busy since coming home - I sent 2 or 3 samples to Messrs Warne as I am not sure about size and style of drawing for lithography - I have not had a reply - it is just as likely that Mr. Stephens [Arthur L., Managing Director of Warne] is away from London. I shall go on in the mean time drawing when ever I can. I am quite keen on the work and do not reject it - but my hand does shake [...] I had nice kittens from Elizabeth + her mother. You shall have the drawings to look at". Some weeks later, on 13 September, Potter wrote to Le Fleming: "I have been very long over [the drawings] - doing them at odd times in a busy season of the year. Some are better or worse than others. The frog and the nut-cracking squirrel are my own favorites, and Jemima with Mr. Tod... The ducks are least satisfactory - I am having another try at Pit Pat Puddle. The tune still hums" (Linder). Curiously, Potter thought the music beyond the ability of youngsters. She wrote to a friend, "I am sending you Christopher Le Fleming's music. It was very charming when he played it but I think it is too difficult for children." - Holograph Potter manuscripts are of exceptional rarity. - Quimby, Appendix IV, C7. Cf. Linder, A History of the Writings of Beatrix Potter, pp. 288-89.

      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 quarter brown morocco and matching 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.
