      London: The Nonesuch Press, 1936. First edition, LIMITED, one of only 750 copies for sale, this copy being number 155. Included with this copy is the publisher's original sales prospectus which features two tipped in leaf reprints. Also included is a copy of the Autumn 1935 Nonesuch News letter which also announces this work along with other famous Nonesuch printings such as the Nonesuch Herodotus. Wonderfully illustrated, with an engraved portrait of Francis Meynell by Eric Gill, three pages of printer's devices, six photogravure plates of bindings, 52 pages reproducing text and title pages, and 45 inserts of flawlessly reprinted leaves from the original works tipped on sturdy gray stock, many of which are bifolia. Folio, in the publisher's original polished green buckram with a black morocco spine label gilt lettered and tooled, and in the rare original dust jacket. xi, 80, [20], [54], [45] pp. A very fine copy, the jacket has done its job properly and the green cloth which is almost always found faded is bright and fresh with only the slightest touch of mellowing only just at the very tips of the spine, very unusual thus, internally very fine, the prospectus and news letter fine as well, the jacket handsome and well preserved with some very minor rubbing or shelf-wear at the edges and folds. FIRST EDITION AND AN UNCOMMONLY BRIGHT AND APPEALING COPY OF THIS IMPORTANT WORK ON THE NONESUCH PRESS. The appraisal is by A. J. A. Symons, publisher, biographer and bibliogapher. The Personal note is byFrance Meynell who co-founded and was the primary printer for the Nonesuch Press. The Bibliography is by Desmond Flower, noted publisher, book-collector, scholar and writer. The inserted printed leaves from the various publications are of highest interest in the work and are perfect in their execution. The Nonesuch Press was founded in 1922 by Francis Meynell, his second wife Vera Mendel, and their mutual friend David Garnett. Their first book, a volume of John Donne's Love Poems was issued in May 1923. The press was at its peak throughout the 1920s and 1930s, but would remain operating through the mid-1960s and eventually produced over 140 books. But their finest and now most prized works are within the first 100 covered in this work.

It was recorded by BBC engineers in defiance of official orders. An exceptionally rare piece. I have a playable recording of the record. There is a sound dropout on the second side but you can still hear what he says. This is more complete version than is generally known. You can hear him rustling of paper and he is introduced by John Reith who you can hear leaving the room with the door closing behind him - it was recorded at Windsor.

Board edges are very rubbed on front and back with soiling to boards. Title page and John Dos Passos essay, plus signed color lithograph are hinged to the inside of front board with binders tape as published.

Essay and plates all show light edgewear and light soiling. Protected in modern custom clamshell box. From a stated edition of 300 with 280 numbered copies and 20 lettered copies hors du commerce with this copy being letter "J". George Grosz was an influential German artist known for caricatural drawings and paintings and was a prominent member of the Berlin Dada and New Objectivity group during the Weimar Republic. Grosz fled his homeland in 1933 and emigrated to the United States becoming a naturalized citizen in 1938. Interregnum, printed on hand-moulded Rives paper, had an announced print run of 300. According to the Museum of Modern Art only approx. 42 copies were issued (including regular edition of 30, deluxe edition of approx. 10, and 2 artist's proofs) , making this issue somewhat rare. In an article published by James A. Van Dyke in Duke University's New German Critique, Van Dyke states "Grosz's depiction of the interrogation and torture of political prisoners such as Erich Mühsam in the concentration camps established after Hitler's appointment as Reich chancellor. Grosz's drawings, compared with other representations of the camps in the mainstream press and by left-wing artists, are distinguished by their treatment of the masculinities of both the perpetrators and the victims. Gay Nazis, frequently evoked by the left-wing press in the early 1930s, abuse impotent antifascist intellectuals, incessantly ridiculed by Grosz in his letters. Thus the article concludes that the portfolio not only offered a mordant critique of Nazi brutality but also dismissed European civilization. Both Nazi perpetrators and their victims embodied perverse or abject masculinities that Grosz, who portrayed himself as a priapic heterosexual artist in the American landscape, rejected." A movie based on the portfolio was nominated for an Oscar for Best Documentary Short in 1960.; Lithograph; Folio 13" - 23" tall; Signed by Artist .

        Uchebnik shankhaiskogo nariechiia. Dopolnennyi perevod i russkaia transkriptsiia L. A. Slobodchikova [A Primer of Shanghai Dialect. Annotated translation with Russian transcriptions by L. A. Slobodchikov]

      Tipografiia, Shanghai 1936 - Octavo (21.5 × 14 cm). Original mustard cloth; VII, 240 pp. Title in Chinese and Russian. Boards lightly soiled; spine sunned; a few pencil annotations and discrete ownership stamp of one George Ivanoff; overall a very good copy. Introductory textbook of Shanghainese, or the Shanghai Dialect, one of the forms of Wu Chinese spoken in Shanghai and its environs (according to the preface, it was at the time the native tongue of twenty million Chinese). Largely drawing on Pott's "Lessons in the Shanghai Dialect", Lev A. Slobodchikov (1910-1983), an engineer and Chinese scholar, prepared this primer for fellow Russian emigres in Shanghai. After the Japanese Occupation of Manchuria, Shanghai became the new center of the Russian emigration in the Far East, explaining the need for the present work. The book is structured into individual lessons that introduce new vocabulary alongside new grammar concepts, with translation exercises and pointers on pronunciation.

        Konstruktionen der drei klassischen Probleme - Quadratur / Duplicatio Cubi / Trisektion

      Kommissionsverlag Sallmayer'sche Buchhandlung / Buchdruckerei "Landstraße" Karl Rabsky, Wien 1936 - Emanuel Quoika (geb. 3. April 1870 in Wien; gest. 23. Dezember 1951 in Wien) war ein altösterreichischer Militär und in dieser Funktion ein Luftfahrtpionier. - Emanuel Quoika, der Sohn eines sudetendeutschen Fabrikanten, ist am 3. April 1870 in Wien geboren. Sein Berufswunsch war bald der eines Soldaten. So wurde er im Jahr 1901 als Hauptmann des k.u.k. Feldkanonenregimets Nr. 6 Lehrer am militäraeronautischen Institutes in Wien. Dabei verfolgte er den Motorflug allgemein, im speziellen auch von Blériot im Jahr 1909 in Wien. Im Herbst des selben Jahres lernte er in Paris das Fliegen und brachte von dort die Maschine Blériot 22 nach Wien. Sein Ziel war mit dieser Maschine den Preis des österreichischen Automobilclubs zu gewinnen. Dazu sollte er am 27. November 1909 die Maschine 10 Minuten in der Luft halten, was aber nicht gelang. Obwohl er beim Testflug am Tag zuvor 20 Minuten erreichte, erfasste gleich nach dem Abheben eine Windbö seinen Apparat und brachte ihn zum Absturz, wobei der Propeller brach. Er selbst kam mit Verrenkungen davon.[1][2] Im Ersten Weltkrieg war er als Batteriekommandant in Galizien. In Przemysl wurde er im Kampf schwer verletzt, sodass sein Bein steif bleib. Trotz dieser Verletzung machte er im Verband der deutschen Mackensen-Armee die serbische Offensive mit, wo er auch deutsche Batterien kommandierte. Im Jahr 1918 wurde er verschüttet und verlor die Sehkraft des rechten Auges. Auch das hinderte ihn nicht weiter im Dienst zu bleiben, sodass er in Tirol eine Artilleriegruppe befehligte. Der Oberst wurde noch mit mit dem deutschen Eisernen Kreuz I. und II. Klasse ausgezeichnet. Nach Kriegsende nicht mehr im Militärdienst machte er technisch mathematische Berechnungen, wie beispielsweise die Berechnung eines Stratosphärenballons. Er berechnete auch mit einem Näherungsverfahren die Quadratur des Kreises oder die Dreiteilung eines Winkels. - Nach dem Anschluss erhielt bis Kriegsende einen Ehrensold von Deutschland. Er verstarb in ärmlichen Verhältnissen in Wien am 23. Dezember 1951. --- Dünne Broschur mit 16 Seiten + 6 Konstruktionsblätter beiliegend. Beriebenes Exemplar mit Wasserschaden, leider in keinem besonders guten Zustand, (Detailfotos gerne per Mail), sehr selten und vor allem mit einer Widmung von Emanuel Quoika auf der Rückseite der Titelei - "Dem Hochverehrten Herrn Amtsrat, Hauptm. Gordan v. Greiffenstein in treuer Altösterreichischer ("Alt" unterstrichen) Kameradschaft ., Wien Juni 1936. - (Exemplar stammt aus dem Vorlass eines Botschafters i. R.) - Bankverbindungen in Österreich und Deutschland. Size: Groß-Oktav (bis 25 cm) [Attributes: Soft Cover]
