The book is bound is a stunning and elegant black suede binding with metal decoration in the shape of a crescent and star on the cover. The binding was made in the late 1930s or early 1940s. The dedication on the title page is dated 1944. The story of the book is set in 15th century Slovenia, in the time of Ottoman invasions. A protagonist of the story, a young boy Jurij Kozjak, a nobleman from a rich family, is sold to gipsies by his evil uncle, who wants to inherit the family’s fortune. The gipsies sell the boy to the Turks, who eventually sell him to the Ottomans, who train him to become their soldier. As a young man he becomes a fearless commander of the Janissaries, an elite infantry units of Ottoman Sultan's household troops, bodyguards and the first modern standing army in Europe. Only after leading an attack on his homeland, Jurij remembers his roots, recognises his father, who retired to the Sti?na Abbey, and finally takes over his family property. The author of the original text Josip Jur?i? is one of the most famous Slovenian writhers of the 19th century. A translator was a Slovenian missionary Ferdinand Kolednik (1907-1981), who translated this book to 9 languages. In 1935 he was became a rector of committee for Yugoslavian immigrants. After WWII he worked in Canada, Peru and Carinthia. For his translations to French he received a golden award by the French Academy.

He founded the Futurist magazines "Il Centauro" and "La Rivista", signed the Futurist manifesto ""Pesi, misure e prezzi del genio artistico" in 1914, and in 1916 co-founded with Corra L'Italia Futurista, the flagship publication of the Futurist movement.

        Le Spectacle Est Dans La Rue (The Poster Art of A.M. Cassandre)

      Draeger Freres, Paris 1936 - A very solid copy of this lovely 1936 promotional album, showcasing the incomparable poster art of A.M. Cassandre (1901-1968), "which expressed his insights into the role that motion and scale in urban environments played in modern design". Published by Draeger Freres of Paris, the 15 sumptuous, full-page reproductions (4 of which are in lavish, vivid color) have been beautifully executed and seem to pop off the pages. The album is tight and VG in its spiral-bound, stiff cardboard wrappers, with light scuffing to the panels and a small amount of light staining at the front panel's lower-edge. Still though, attractive and very presentable. And internally, sharp as could be, with just a touch of wear to the pastedowns but with no markings of any kind to the plates. Tall quarto, Preface by the formidable Blaise Cendrars. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money.

      London, Macmillan, 1936. - 8vo. XII, 403 pp. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt. First edition, first impression of what is generally considered the author's magnum opus, the book widely credited with creating the terminology and shape of modern macroeconomics. One of the iconic books in the development of economic thought by one of the outstanding economists of his generation. "The composition of this book", Keynes declares, "has been for the author a long struggle of escape, and so must the reading of it be for most readers if the author's assault upon them is to be successful, - a struggle of escape from habitual modes of thought and expression. The ideas which are here expressed so laboriously are extremely simple and should be obvious. The difficulty lies, not in the new ideas, but in escaping from the old ones, which ramify, for those brought up as most of us have been, into every corner of our minds" (Preface, p. VIII). "In 1936, although Roosevelt's 'New Deal' had utilized Keynesian prescriptions, 'The General Theory' ('on which', says D.N.B., 'his fame as the outstanding economist of his generation must rest') threw the economists of the world into two violently opposed camps. Yet eight years later Keynes was to dominate the international conference at Bretton Woods, out of which came the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank; and his influence during the ensuing decades, even on his theoretical opponents, has been such that a highly placed American official recently remarked that 'we are all Keynesians today'" (PMM). - Very light discolouring of upper margin (ca 3 cm) of front side, a fine copy.

        Two Boys go Sailing. Illustrated by Brigid Ganly.

      London, J.M.Dent & Sons Ltd. 1936 - First Edition. 8°. Frontispiece - Illustration, VIII, 246 pages with a (partly fictitious) map of Roaringwater Bay on the pastedown and endpaper and 12 illustrations throughout the book. Original, illustrated Hardcover. Excellent condition of this scarce book with only minor signs of external wear to the binding. This is one of the rarest publications on West Cork, Baltimore and Roaringwater Bay. Edward Conor Marshall O'Brien (3 November 1880 – 18 April 1952) was an intellectual, Irish aristocrat, republican, nationalist, pioneer in modern maritime theory, owner and captain of one of the first boats to sail under the tri-colour of the Irish Free State, during his circumnavigation in the Saoirse. He was a grandson of the Fenian William Smith O'Brien. Reputedly this was the first small boat to sail around Cape Horn. This is slightly unfair to Joshua Slocum, the Bostonian, who was the first single-handed yachtsman to successfully pass this way (in 1895) although in the end, extreme weather forced him to use some of the inshore routes between the channels and islands and it is believed he may not have actually passed outside the Horn proper. Given the scale of Slocum's achievement it might be considered unfair to deprive him of the honour! Although it was nearly 30 years later, a strict definition of "the first small boat to sail around outside Cape Horn" could indeed cover the 42-foot (13 m) yacht Saoirse, sailed by Conor O'Brien with three hands, who rounded it during a circumnavigation of the world between 1923 and 1925 It was the first boat flying the Irish tri-colour to enter many of the world's ports and harbours. He was a ship builder/designer (notable boats include the Saoirse and AK Ilen ), gun runner for the Irish Volunteers during the war of independence in Ireland, captain of a ship sailing in the merchant navy during WWII.

        Coeurs volants" Cahiers d'art. 11e annà e, no. 1-2. L'objet

      Paris: Editions Cahiers d'Art, 1936 - The rarest of issues of Zervos' great periodical in a rather poor copy. 94 splendid plates & ills. (3 color). iv + 68 pp. Stiff paper covers. 32 x 24.5 cm. The subtitle promises (and delivers) "Objets mathà matique. Objets naturels. Objets sauvages. Objets trouvà s. Objets irrationnels. Objets ready made. Objets interprà tà s. Objets incorporà s. Objets mobiles." Duchamp designed the famous cover, "Coeurs volants" with its nested hearts in vibrating red and blue especially for this issue. Among the many other artists illustrated are Man Ray (12 rich black-and-white photos in one article and many in others), Magritte, Bellmer, Giacometti, Picasso, Calder, Ernst, and Meret Oppenheim's "Fur-lined teacup," nearly a year before its startling appearance at MoMA in the show "Fantastic art, Dada, and Surrealism." **The condition of this copy leaves much to be desired. It is disbound, with the covers detached and only the top end of the spine present bearing the identification "1936 No. 1-2." The front cover is dulled, faded near the top and spine edge, and with several spots and other small defects (see photo). The rear cover is better but faded at the spine and creased diagonally at the bottom. There are a few small turned upper corners in the first few pages. The latter half has slight rippling from damp, but no pages are stuck or torn. Vanishingly and deservedly rare in any condition, and priced accordingly. **Free domestic or international shipping with direct order.
