      New York: A.S. Crockett, 1935. Hardcover. Good Only. Green cloth-covered boards, 7 1/2" x 5 1/4". Staining to boards, and joints, and moderate wear to extremities, especially spine,which shows fraying to top and bottom. Very slight crack at rear joint, but apart from a slight spine lean, is still very tightly-bound. Previous owner's stamp to front free endpaper. Lacks dustjacket. Albert Stevens Crockett was a well-known and respected journalist whose interests ranged from spirits (this book), to spiritualism, and communication with the departed soul of his late beloved step-daughter (his book Revelations of Louise). Earlier, Crockett's Old Waldorf Bar Days, by his own account, was more about the social mores of the day, and less about the actual drinks. After that eventful day of repeal, December 5th, 1933, however, Crockett realized there were few barmen alive, or of those yet extant, who remembered many of the recipes of the countless pre-Prohibition libations. He found one, however, a Joseph Taylor, who had managed to hang on to a copy of the informal Waldorf "Bar Book" wherein all new and successful recipes were dutifully inscribed, and incorporating its contents, created this (recipe) book. The author writes: "For the convenience of students of the cultural history and mores of the American people, as well as for those who wish to set a goal before starting to mix, the bibulous concoctions long known and served at the Bar of the Old Waldorf have been arranged alphabetically, and in two general classes. The cocktails have been set down in one list and the others, which might be classed as 'beverages'..." Besides the revised formulas for cocktails and other mixed drinks.included [are} a number of recipes...mostly gathered outside of the United States, and many of them tested and approved by author." A fairly-priced, fairly-beat copy of a scarce book of liquid recipe. NOTE: Library of Congress cites a 1934 issue of this title by Dodd Mead, of which 11 libraries worldwide own copies. Crockett must have taken back publication the following year. 5 libraries worldwide hold this particular edition. "Giving the correct recipes for Five Hundred Cocktails and Mixed Drinks known and served at the world's most famouns brass rail before prohibition, together with more than One Hundred Established Formulas for cocktails and other beverages,originated while prohibition was in effect. The whole flavored with dashes of history mixed in a shaker of anecdote and served with a chaser of illuminative information..."

        Sämtliche Werke 6. Band VI. Symphonie A-Dur (Originalfassung) Vorgelegt von Robert Haas Partitur-Sonderausgabe. [Full score]

      Wien: Musikwissenschaftlicher Verlag... der Internationalen Bruckner-Gesellschaft, 1935. First scholarly edition. Grasberger 106. As is the case with early editions of Bruckner's symphonies, the first edition (published posthumously by Doblinger in 1899) introduces a number of changes not originating with Bruckner; their extent, however, in not as large as in those of other Bruckner symphonies. Heger (1886-1977) studied in Strasbourg with Franz Stockhausen (1900-02) and in Munich with Schillings (1907-08). His career included posts at the Staatsoper in Munich, Vienna and Berlin. "[His] reputation as a conductor, enhanced by his numerous appearances at Covent Garden (between 1925 and 1935, and in 1953 for the Bavarian première of Strauss's Capriccio with the Staatsoper) and by his famous abridged commercial recording of Der Rosenkavalier with Lotte Lehmann and Elisabeth Schumann, has tended to overshadow his achievements as a composer. In general he followed the late Romantic traditions of Strauss, Reger and Pfitzner without achieving any distinctive originality. Nonetheless, he wrote extremely effectively for orchestra, and such works as the Verdi-Variationen (1933) featured in concert programmes during the 1930s." Erik Levi in Grove online Heger's markup reflects his comparison of the present edition with the first edition of the symphony. The manuscript quotation to the secondary title credited to Ernst Décsey (1870-1941) is from his book entitled Bruckner: Versuch eines Lebens (Berlin: Schuster & Löffler, [1920]). Heger copied the same text, albeit with an omission, into his copy of the first edition as well. Apart from the unfinished Ninth, the Sixth was the only one of Bruckner's numbered symphonies that did not receive a complete performance in the composer's lifetime; only the two middle movements were heard in a concert of the Vienna Philharmonic under Wilhelm Jahn on February 11, 1883. The first performance of all four movements, albeit with cuts, took place with the same orchestra under Gustav Mahler on February 26, 1899. Wilhelm Pohlig's Stuttgart performance on March 14, 1901, was the first complete one.. Folio. Black cloth with titling to upper. [i] (blank), [i] (series title), [i] (title), [i] (credits to Siegmund von Hausegger and Elsa Krüger and copyright notice), [i] (secondary title), [i] (blank), 3-140 pp. From the collection of the German conductor and composer Robert Heger, with his signature in blue ink to upper right corner of title. Extensively marked up in pencil, blue pencil and red crayon by Heger, with textual notes in pencil, in German, to credits/copyright page relative to timing: "Dauer I. Satz Maestoso 13' II. [Satz] Adagio 14' III. [Satz] Scherzo 6' IV. [Satz] Finale 12' [Total] 45'" and with a textual quotation from Ernst Décsey on the present symphony to lower portion of secondary title. Small stain to pp. 122-23; pp. 127-28 partially detached; professional repair to pp. 75-76.

        Noel. Christmas Echoes Down the Ages, Recaptured by Robert K. Shaw.

      Worcester: Achille J. St. Onge, 1935. (30)ff. One of 278 copies. This copy is unnumbered and inscribed "with high regard" by the author to Mrs. J. H. Soliday, i.e. H. Marion Soliday, a noted collector and member of the LXIVMOS. With her daughter and son-in-law, she wrote "Chats About Miniature Books," a true miniature book about miniature books. Also included with this copy are two sample leaves of a proposed second edition of the book that was never published. The leaves show two different settings of the title page and first two text pages, dated 1957. Noel was produced by the same companies that printed and bound the disastrous Inaugural Address of Thomas Jefferson in 1943, of which all but 33 copies were destroyed by St. Onge because of their poor quality. It is possible that St. Onge planned to republish Noel in a larger edition using a different printer and binder, but never completed the project. A collection of poetic tributes to Christmas, Noel was written by Robert K. Shaw, a librarian at the Worcester Public Library and microbibliophile whose article on miniature books led St. Onge to publish this, his first miniature book, in 1935. Frontispiece of the Madonna and child by Bernardino dei Conti, courtesy of the Worcester Art Museum, tipped in. An extremely fine, crisp copy in full red leather with the title in gilt on the front cover. A unique example of one of the most sought after St. Onge titles. (Massmann 1; Welsh 6350; Bondy, p. 169; MBC I: No. 3, p. 5; Bradbury, p. 251). (2 7/16 by 1 11/16; 62x44mm).

        URSS en Construction, Energie Electrique en URSS.

      1935. BOUNIMOVITCH, T. et al. URSS en Construction. Energie Electrique en URSS. By Nikolai Troshin. [48] pp. Illustrated with a plethora of Russian photomontage images throughout. Folio, 415 x 300 mm, bound in original wrappers. Moscow: Editions d'Etat des Beaux-Arts, 1930. A fine copy of a typical issue of this landmark periodical, this one devoted to elctricity in the Soviet union, illustrated with photographs by T. Bounimovitch, S. Goldstein, E.Krouse, V. Mikouline and G. Petrousoff. As Martin Parr says "from 1930-1940 URSS en Construction employed the best Soviet photo-journalists and graphic designers. Amongst the photographers were Max Alpert, Arkadi Shaikhet, Georgi Zeima, Boris Ignatovich, Semen Fridland and Georgi Shaikhet. Designers included El Lissitzky, Sophie Kueppers, Aleksandr Rodchenko and Varvara Stepanova, and Nikolai Troshin who designed this issue and over forty others. All the visual strategies of the propaganda photobooks, designed by Lissitzky, Rodchenko and others -- the elaborate photomontages, innovative photography, fold-out pages, transparent overlays and so on -- were developed in URSS en Construction, one of the most beautifully produced magazines of the twentieth century." It was published in Russian, French, English and German. This is the French version. Front wrapper with a diagonal crease otherwise in fine condition. Parr and Badger, The Photobook I, 148-149.

        Green Hills of Africa

      New York: Charles Scribner, 1935. 1st. Cloth. Good/Good. An unusual copy of the 1935 1st edition, 2nd state (without the "A" on the copyright page). From the personal library of noted literary critic Maxwell Geismar (who, among other things, wrote the Introduction to Eldridge Cleaver's "Soul on Ice"). Geismar has heavily highlighted this copy --clearly his working copy-- in color pencil and has made several extensive margin notes. (A fascinating glimpse into the working methods of a major mid-century American critic). A presentable, "starter" copy to boot. The boards are relatively clean, the binding solid, the dustjacket --in spite of a few chips and some creasing-- is 95% present.
