        USSR Architecture [and] Construction of Moscow].

      Moskva - 1938 1935 - USSR Architecture (Organ Soyuza sovetskikh arkhitektorov, Moskva, 1936-37): 21 issues (1936: issues No3 - 12; 1937: issues No1 - 11), complete with all ll., original wrappers; occasional spotting and soiling, some occasional light mold, heavier to last 15 ll. of issue 9 for 1937, margins and spines of wrappers slightly chipped. Construction of Moscow (Mossovet, Moskva, 1935-38): No6 and 17-18 for 1935; No4-8, 10-12 and 22 for 1936; No6, 12, 22 for 1937 and No16 for 1938, most issues with plates, including some folding, original wrappers; some light marginal waterstaining in several issues, light soiling. A collection of issues of the two famous Soviet architectural periodicals that together provide an insight into the unique marriage of the architectural aspirations and ideology of the Stalin's epoch. The "USSR architecture" was an illustrated monthly periodical that was published from 1933 until 1992 with some interruptions. It included overviews of the domestic architecture, building projects as well as articles on European and American architecture. The tone of reviews obeys a strict ideological framework. Articles about projects by Soviet architects are impregnated with pompous praise, whereas many of those reviewing architecture abroad overuse such notions as "battle", "controversy of capitalism" and "crises". One of the most interesting projects that is featured in three issues offered here (No7 for the year 1936, No 5 for 1937 and No11 for 1937) is the famous USSR pavilion at the International Exposition dedicated to Art and Technology in Modern Life held in Paris in 1937. Designed by the B.M. Iofan the building was lined with Samarkand marble. The entrance to the pavilion was decorated with bas-reliefs by sculptor I.M. Chaikoff featuring the coats of arms of the USSR and 11 Union republics. The most notable part of the pavilion was the 24-meter sculptural group "A Worker and a Collective Farm Girl", made of stainless steel after a design by Vera Mukhina, which symbolised the achievements of the socialist industrialisation. The other periodical "The Construction of Moscow" was founded in 1923 and often featured stellar avant-garde designs by Gustav Klutsis, Vasilii Elkin, and El Lissitzky. It ran through the 1930s, but progressively became less and less modernist in terms of both form and content as time went on. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Black Tents of Arabia (My Life Among the Bedouins).

      London, Hutchinson, [1935]. 8vo. Original black cloth, lettered in white (remainder binding); pp. 280, 24, (advertisements); numerous illustrations from photographs, one folding table of named horses; cloth a little marked and with lettering of spine partially lost, else a very good copy. Scarce first edition of a major work discussing Arab horses and camels, among ethnographic observations. A minor incident had resulted in the author becoming a blood brother of Amir Fuaz, a member of the Ruala Bedouins, one of the largest Bedouin tribes. His experiences during numerous visits to the tribe in the years following the First World War are recounted in the present work. Inhabiting the region of northern Arabia, the Ruala prove to be fierce hosts, and Raswan records instances of skirmishes between marauding bands, alongside enjoyment of pursuits such as falconry. The majority of plates depict horses and camels, at work and rest and being cared for. The table lists Arabian Horses of "known" ('asil') descent in both Arabic and English transliteration. Carl Reinhard Raswan (1893-1966), born Carl Reinhard Schmidt was the scholar of Arabian bloodlines, he also published the Raswan Index, an extensive compilation of Arabian horse pedigrees and strain information. He advocated tolerance and understanding of Bedouin ways of life and culture in Arabia. Raswan's life in Arabia and the US is definitely worth a full-length biography.

        Seven Pillars of Wisdom

      One of the seminal works of 20th-century military history detailing Thomas Edward Lawrence's experiences in the Middle East before, during and just after the First World War mostly involving the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Turks in 1916. The author's story was made into a bio-pic film starring Peter O'Toole called "Lawrence of Arabia", the name he is often known by. Please read ALL of the following before emailing me with questions. More than likely, the answer is here! Seven Pillars of Wisdom by T. E. Lawrence (Thomas Edward Lawrence a.k.a. Lawrence of Arabia; not to be confused with D. H. Lawrence) Hardcover First Trade Edition - First Printing - First StateJonathan Cape UK 1935. Red-purple boards clothed in a tan-colored dust jacket (often missing). 672 pages. Printed price of "30s. net" (30 shillings) on the lower inside of the front dust jacket flap. Contains 54 plate illustrations, including many portraits, and 4 maps. Illustration on pp. 304-305 listed incorrectly as pp. 302-303 on p. 20 of the Illustrations index. (Later state and later printing copies correct the error.) First trade edition issued to the public, second complete edition, and third edition overall. See edition notes below.Condition: Just about Fine in Very Good++ Dust Jacket(almost near fine). A beautiful copy of one of the seminal works of 20th-century military history. Book itself is just about fine, clean pages, slight tenderness to corners, expected for a book over 80 years old. Former owner book plate on front paste down. Pages are generally quite clean and bright. Original dust jacket is present and accounted for, about 99.99% all there. Just slight fraying to the upper spine and a 3/4" slit down upper left-hand edge near the spine, some rubbing to the spine at the words "complete and unabridged" else an excellent example. Edition notes: Seven Pillars of Wisdomwas first published privately in 1926 in an edition of 170 copies issued only to family and friends. A single copy is available at this writing for about $100,000. Apparently, Lawrence did not intend the text of his accounts in the Middle East during the First World War to be available to the public at large, at least not until after his death. However, at the urging of friends, Lawrence allowed Jonathan Cape to issue an abridged version of his accounts titled Revolt in the Desert. Upon Lawrence's death in 1935, Cape issued Seven Pillars of Wisdom, his complete account of his experiences in the Middle East in the first trade edition available to the public, the edition being offered here in its first printing. It sold well over 100,000 copies in multiple printings by the end of the year. Winston Churchill asserted "It ranks with the greatest books written in the English language." Pillars is regarded as one of the seminal works of primary source military prose.NOTE: All modern books with dust jackets come with dust jacket covers.ALSO: The pictures are of the actual item for sale. (The pictures are NOT stock photos.)

        Roma. Fontana dell’esedra.

      1935 - Ernesto G. Armani (1898-1986) è uno dei tanti artisti formatisi presso la Scuola Reale Elisabettiana di Rovereto, istituzione che ospitò le prime ricerche di personalità del calibro di Depero e Melotti. Bellissimi i diafani paesaggi ad acquarello, imbevuti della luce tremolante dell’alba e di quella più accecante del meriggio, ritraenti scorci da cartolina come Castel Sant’Angelo a Roma o il ponte sul Tamigi a Londra; acquerelli che fecero apprezzare l’artista specialmente all’estero, tanto che tra 1928 e 1929 furono esposti in più occasioni tra Germania e Olanda, mentre negli anni Trenta e poi nei Cinquanta sbarcarono, assieme alla produzione ad olio, anche in America del Sud. Il paesaggio atmosferico è il timbro dell’artista che si ripete in un’accezione sempre diversa, utilizzando ora gli effetti di rifrazione provocati dalla pioggia, come in "I piccioni di piazza Duomo a Milano" (1945) o in "Londra. Abbazia di Westminster" (1952), ora le sfumature penetranti della nebbia -è questo il caso di opere come "Parigi. La cattedrale nella nebbia" (1952) o "Vienna. Le carrozzelle" (1953) -, ora la luce abbagliante e tersa del sole, come in "Aratura in Toscana" (1940) o "Luci nel bosco" (1943).\rUna sottile armonia vibrante caratterizza tutte le sue opere, armonia capace perfino di presentare senza ombra di contrasto una veduta del Duomo di Milano in cui una carrozza a cavalli convive pacificamente con una colonna d’automobili rallentata dal traffico. Il tema della carrozza a cavalli ritorna del resto in molti lavori, quasi a voler fissare un mondo, un ritmo che l’artista nel secondo dopoguerra vede inesorabilmente scomparire, travolto dall’incalzare della frenesia. In questa direzione spingono anche i dipinti dedicati al lavoro nei campi, che in opere come "Controluce alla foce" (1936) sono capaci di offrire sogni bucolici di reminescenza ancora ottocentesca. Firmato in basso a sinistra, si vende in cornice.\r Formato: Tecnica mista di cm 50x40 circa. Più che buono.

        Voluptés de Paris [Pleasures of Paris]

      Paris: Paris-Publications, 1935. FIRST EDITION, THE PRESUMED FIRST ISSUE, COMPLETE WITH THE SIX SUPPRESSED PLATES AND ORIGINAL SPIRAL BINDING. Original spiral binding. Very Good. FIRST EDITION, THE PRESUMED FIRST ISSUE, COMPLETE WITH THE SIX SUPPRESSED PLATES AND ORIGINAL SPIRAL BINDING. "Brassaï's early photographs concentrated on the nighttime world of Montparnasse, a district of Paris then noted for its artists, streetwalkers, and petty criminals. His pictures were published in a successful book, Paris de nuit (1933), which caused a stir because of its sometimes scandalous subject matter. His next book, Voluptés de Paris, made him internationally famous" (Britannica)."Paris by Night was no sooner off the press than Brassaï sold the remaining photographs to the popular magazine Voilà and began another phase of his exploration of the city. In December, 1933, he wrote his parents that he was taking the final photographs for his 'Paris intime,' Pierre Mac Orlan had agreed to write the preface, and publication was scheduled for March."By October, 1935, it was clear that the book had stalled at the publishers. Although Brassaï had received an advance, the publisher claimed he was financially unable to bring the book out. When the book finally did emerge from the printer it was entitled Voluptés de Paris, and there was no introduction by Mac Orlan. The unsigned preface mimicked a carnival barker's spiel, touting the city to the potential reader like a lewd sideshow attraction: 'Paris the paradise of desire, the capital of Adventure... Paris where you can find your every fantasy in reality...'. Available by mail order, the book would be sent in a plain wrapper..."Brassaï was not pleased with the production and distribution of the book and soon disowned it. "However, Voluptés de Paris did not entirely escape critical notice. Peter Pollack... judged it among Brassaï's best work, 'an invaluable collection of Brassaï's essential pictures'..." (Marja Warehime, Brassai: Images of Culture and the Surrealist Observer).On the two issues: Anne Wilkes Tucker notes in her detailed book Brassaï: The Eye of Paris: "The book is very rare, and for unknown reasons two versions exist. One has thirty-eight halftones and the other has forty-six... I have yet to see a copy of the larger edition with the binding intact, so perhaps plates were removed to prevent the rings from breaking".This is the only copy we have seen complete with the forty-six photos and original spiral rings.Paris: Paris-Publications, 1935. Quarto, original orange wrappers, original spiral binding; custom box. One leaf neatly detached. A spectacular copy. RARE.

        Voluptés de Paris [Pleasures of Paris]

      Paris: Paris-Publications, 1935. FIRST EDITION, THE PRESUMED FIRST ISSUE, COMPLETE WITH THE SIX SUPPRESSED PLATES AND ORIGINAL SPIRAL BINDING. Original spiral binding. Very Good. FIRST EDITION, THE PRESUMED FIRST ISSUE, COMPLETE WITH THE SIX SUPPRESSED PLATES AND ORIGINAL SPIRAL BINDING. "Brassaï's early photographs concentrated on the nighttime world of Montparnasse, a district of Paris then noted for its artists, streetwalkers, and petty criminals. His pictures were published in a successful book, Paris de nuit (1933), which caused a stir because of its sometimes scandalous subject matter. His next book, Voluptés de Paris, made him internationally famous" (Britannica). "Paris by Night was no sooner off the press than Brassaï sold the remaining photographs to the popular magazine Voilà and began another phase of his exploration of the city. In December, 1933, he wrote his parents that he was taking the final photographs for his 'Paris intime,' Pierre Mac Orlan had agreed to write the preface, and publication was scheduled for March. "By October, 1935, it was clear that the book had stalled at the publishers. Although Brassaï had received an advance, the publisher claimed he was financially unable to bring the book out. When the book finally did emerge from the printer it was entitled Voluptés de Paris, and there was no introduction by Mac Orlan. The unsigned preface mimicked a carnival barker's spiel, touting the city to the potential reader like a lewd sideshow attraction: 'Paris the paradise of desire, the capital of Adventure... Paris where you can find your every fantasy in reality...'. Available by mail order, the book would be sent in a plain wrapper..." Brassaï was not pleased with the production and distribution of the book and soon disowned it. "However, Voluptés de Paris did not entirely escape critical notice. Peter Pollack... judged it among Brassaï's best work, 'an invaluable collection of Brassaï's essential pictures'..." (Marja Warehime, Brassai: Images of Culture and the Surrealist Observer). On the two issues: Anne Wilkes Tucker notes in her detailed book Brassaï: The Eye of Paris: "The book is very rare, and for unknown reasons two versions exist. One has thirty-eight halftones and the other has forty-six... I have yet to see a copy of the larger edition with the binding intact, so perhaps plates were removed to prevent the rings from breaking". This is the only copy we have seen complete with the forty-six photos and original spiral rings. Paris: Paris-Publications, 1935. Quarto, original orange wrappers, original spiral binding; custom box. One leaf neatly detached. A spectacular copy. RARE.

        BROADSIDES, A COLLECTION OF NEW AND OLD SONGS, 1935

      Dublin: Cuala Press, 1935. SIGNED LIMITED FIRST EDITION. Fine/Very Good. ILLUSTRATIONS BY: YEATS, JACK B; BROWN, VICTOR; O'SULLIVAN, SEAN; PEET, E.C; KERNOFF, HARRY; MCGONIGAL, MAURICE MUSIC BY DUFF, ARTHUR. SIGNED LIMITED FIRST EDITION OF W.B. YEATS'S BROADSIDES, ONE OF ONLY 100 COPIES SIGNED BY W.B. YEATS AND F.R. HIGGINS AT END OF INTRODUCTORY ESSAY AND ACCOMPANIED BY BREATHTAKING HAND-COLORED ILLUSTRATIONS. Collection of 12 broadsides originally issued individually from January-December 1935. Containing both traditional and new Irish ballads written by Yeats, F.R. Higgins, Padraic Colum, and others. With engraved music throughout. Numerous evocative and emotional hand-colored woodblock illustrations, including many by Jack B. Yeats, brother of the famed W.B Yeats.  Only 300 copies printed, with only 100 copies bound and signed, making this production EXTREMELY RARE. Signed by Yeats and Higgins at the end of their preface, Anglo-Irish Ballads. "Yeats is now seen as one of a handful of Irish writers whose influence and example helped create twentieth-century modernist literature in the English language...his huge international reputation is securely based on the mystery and grandeur of his late verse and the poignancy of his love poetry, but he first came to fame as the exotically Celtic poet of a 'new' nationalist Ireland: almost single-handed, he made Irishness culturally fashionable. Spearheading a great cultural renaissance, he moved into his maturity as the voice of his country" (Oxford Dictionary of National Biography) . It was not merely Yeats, however, who is responsible for arousing Irish patriotism.  The Cuala Press, a small press started by Yeat's sister Elizabeth, is regarded as one of the first publishing houses to bring attention to Irish literature, art and music.  Her production of Broadsidesis no different. "The glory that once was Ireland and could again be Ireland was the fire that burned unquenched in the mind and will of Elizabeth Corbett Yeats" (Colby Library Quarterly) . Dublin: Cuala Press, 1935. Small folio, original cloth backed boards with paper label to upper cover. Complete with what is almost certainly the original plain unlettered dust jacket (we can find no other examples of the jacket, but this is comparable to other jackets for Cuala Press books). Book remarkably bright and clean with only a couple of tiny spots to cloth. A few chips to dust jacket. Housed in vibrant red custom box. An VERY RARE AND NEARLY PERFECT COPY of a book of large cultural importance with dazzlingly fresh illustrations.

        The Box of Delights or When the Wolves were Running.

      William Heinemann, London 1935 - First Edition (first printing) of Masefield's seminal children's classic. 8vo. 418pp. Blue cloth, lettered in gold at spine and upper board with the publisher's motif blind-stamped to rear board. With splendid colour endpapers by Masefield's daughter, Judith, replicating the dust wrapper design, plus a series of chapter header and tail illustrations. A penny-sized area of staining to the top edge and just a trace of fading to the backstrip. Very good indeed in the fugitive dust wrapper, non-price-clipped but with some tanning to the spine panel, a touch of occasional light spotting and soiling and several slivers of loss from the spine ends. The sequel to Masefield's 1927 novel 'The Midnight Folk' continuing the adventures of Kay Harker. This volume is considerably more uncommon than its predecessor, and elusive indeed with the dust wrapper. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Girl Campers" [story in] Woman's World, July 1935

      Woman's World Publishing, Mount Morris, Illinois 1935 - Magazine. 26pp. Stapled wrappers. Light general wear at the edges and with the typical subscription stamp in the upper left corner, very good. Highsmith's first published work, at the age of 14, a series of letters written to her mother and stepfather from a camp for girls when she was only 12, accompanied by four of her cartoons. The letters contain many of the comments one would expect from a young girl along with several intriguing comments predicting her brief comic book career ("bring the Sunday funny papers if you come."); her sexuality ("We are going swimming 'Diana' tonight . Diana means without any clothes on at all. Do you think it's all right to go in Diana?"); and her future in publishing ("There is a girl here named Janet Armstrong that I want you to meet. She lives in Tudor City and her father is a publisher."). A remarkable piece of juvenilia from this notable American writer best known for Strangers on a Train and her series of Tom Ripley crime novels.

In totaal zijn gedurende twee jaar 8 afleveringen verschenen, elk met drie spreekwoorden. Het ontbreken van het eerste blad in sommige katernen is veroorzaakt door het wegsnijden van de titelpagina van de betreffende aflevering; alleen bij aflevering 6 is hij bewaard gebleven."
