        [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

        Summertime. The Theatre Guild presents Porgy and Bess... Libretto by DuBose Heyward Lyrics by DuBose Heyward and Ira Gershwin Production Directed by Rouben Mamoulian... Original in B Minor Revised in A Minor Price 95c [cents]. With Gershwin's autograph signature

      New York Gershwin Publishing Corporation & New Dawn Music Corporation [PN G-1-3] [ca. 1935]. Folio. Original publisher's illustrated wrappers in black and white by B. Harris depicting a stylized plantation scene with the skyscrapers of New York in the far upper right background. Pp. 3-5 music.

With a signed autograph inscription to Jim White from the composer on an album leaf 116 x 138 mm. mounted to page 5 of the music. Slightly browned; lower margins slightly dampstained.. "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.

        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.

        Ladies in the Parlor

      New York: Greenberg: Publisher. Near Fine in Very Good+ dj. (c.1935). 2nd printing. Hardcover. [very nice copy, tight and clean with minimal shelfwear; jacket shows light rubbing/soiling, one shallow chip at bottom of front panel, minor wear at base of spine, small sticker-shadow and a couple of tiny stains at upper right-hand corner of front panel, slight spine fade]. Tully's novel of a small-town girl who escapes small-town poverty (and various abusive and sexually aggressive men) by going to work for Madame Rosenbloom in her high-class (and politically well-connected) Chicago brothel. It's been stated that the book's scarcity is due to its having been "banned" -- it was declared obscene by a New York court, which fined the publisher $50 -- which makes it a bit of a surprise to see "Second Printing" stated at the top of the front jacket flap. (The book itself bears no edition statement.) .

        Seven Pillars Of Wisdom. ( A Triumph)

      London, Jonathan Cape. 1935., 1935. LIMITED ISSUE of the FIRST EDITION, published for general circulation (originally published privately in 1926). No.486 of 750 copies. Illustrated with three manuscript facsimiles and forty-seven plates including four in colour. Four folding maps. One-quarter pigskin over brown buckram with crossed swords in gilt to front panel, titled in gilt to backstrip, patterned endpapers, top edge gilt. Some minor wear/scuffing to spine ends else a near fine copy, with the accompanying plain paper wrapper (worn). 'Seven Pillars of Wisdom: A Triumph' is the autobiographical account of the experiences of T. E. Lawrence ('Lawrence of Arabia') while serving as a liaison officer with rebel forces during the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Turks of 1916 to 1918. This monumental work had been privately printed in 1922, and a 1926 self-financed subscriber's edition had left Lawrence facing bankruptcy, so author vowed "No further issue of the Seven Pillars will be made in my lifetime". This first trade issue therefore followed in 1935, within weeks of the motorcyle accident that so tragically and prematurely claimed the life of one of the greatest visionary heroes of modern times.

        De knyttede haender. Roman. Paa dansk ved E. Grünbaum.

      Köpenhamn; Nyt Nordisk Forlag / Arnold Busck, 1935. Originalets titel: De knutna händerna (Stockholm, 1930). 20,5x15 cm. 304 s. Häftad med tryckt omslag. Det överdimensionerade omslaget är veckat samt har några riss vid ryggfoten och i yttre och nedre marginalerna. Två blad med liten hörnförlust upptill, annars en fin inlaga. Första danska utgåvan. Dedikation: ''Till Kristina, min älskade! / Vilhelm''. Mottagaren Kristina Odelberg/Hedenblad (1917-2005) hade under 40-talet och möjligen även senare en kärleksaffär med Moberg, som döpte Kristina i Utvandrarserien efter henne. Kärleksaffären upptäcktes via en svit om 30 böcker som Moberg dedicerat till henne. I exemplaret av Utvandrarna (1949) skriver han: "Till Kristina, min älskade, som lånat sitt namn åt den kvinnliga huvudpersonen i denna bok, med tacksamhet och kärlek från Författaren", ett intyg som upprepas så sent som 1969 i pocketupplagan av Utvandrarserien: " Den 29/3 1969. / Till Kristina -- hon som givit sitt namn åt den kvinnliga huvudpersonen i utvandrarromanen och till Minnet / med innerlig tillgivenhet från Författaren", vilket visar att hon var fullt närvarande i hans tankevärld under hela denna tid och därmed mycket väl kan ha påverkat hans senare litterära produktion. Vad som ytterligare talar för detta är exemplaret av Vår ofödde son, en pjäs från 1945 som behandlar abort-problematik. Detta är den enda av böckerna som Kristina låtit binda in i ett påkostat rött skinnband, med en pärmficka längst bak där hon samlat tidningsartiklar om boken och dess författare. I Kristinas exemplar av den danska utgåvan av samma bok, utgiven 1947, finns en dedikation från översättaren: "Kaera Kristina! / Denne Bog, den til Dels handler om dig, sendes dig til Erindring -- ikke om Forfattaren, men om Oversatteren. / Din Carl Erik''

A.S. Byatt, in her introduction to the 1976 Penguin edition, stated she had been reading the novel since the age of ten.Bowen is generally acknowledged as an important twentieth-century English (and Anglo-Irish) writer.'The House in Paris' was written during a period of great activity (she published four novels and a short story collection in the 1930s,besides writing literary reviews), and received positive reviews.Early Bowen titles are very scarce to find in any condition.This is a superb copy and certainly the nicest copy we have ever encountered.

        Map of Mexico City and Valley

      Mexico.: Frances Toor Studios.. 1935.. Color pictographic / pictorial street map, 19 3/4 x 25 inches on sheet size 20 1/2 x 26 inches, professionally mounted on linen. Light wear to folds, tears to mid right map now visible only on close examination. Brightly colored pictorial map designed by the Guatemalan artist Carlos Merida (1891-1984) showing a street plan of central Mexico City with pictographs of many buildings and a numbered "Business Directory" of 21 places in the cartouche, referencing numbers on the map. A note under the map states that "the motifs of the border consist of Aztec and colonial symbols of the names of suburban places." At the lower centre of the map is an inset map of the valley surrounding Mexico City. A wonderful example of the "translation" of the twentieth century decorative map that MacDonald Gill pioneered, here with a Hispanic sensibility. .

        A Primer of Chess

      London: G. Bell & Sons, Ltd.,, 1935. Octavo. Original brown cloth, gilt lettered spine. With the dust jacket. Illustrated throughout with examples of chess moves. Jacket with a few nicks, chips and light creasing. An excellent copy. First edition, first impression. Inscribed on the front free endpaper: "J. R. Capablanca, Margate, April 24 1936" - this would have been signed at the Margate chess tournament of 1936, where Capablanca placed second by half a point (played 9, won 5, lost 4). Copies with the dust jacket are scarce. Copies that have passed though the hands of the great Cuban Grandmaster and signed by him are distinctly rare. And for that copy to have been signed at a tournament is particularly desirable.
