        Journals of John D. Lee, 1846-7 and 1859

      Privately printed for Rolla Bishop Watt by Western Printing Company, Salt Lake City, UT 1938 - 244pp. Quarto [27.5 cm] Green cloth with gilt stamped titles on the spine and front cover. Very good. The edges of the covers are faded and lightly rubbed and bumped. There are numerous barely perceptible stains on the rear cover. The endsheets are slightly soiled, the rear endsheet more so than the front endsheet. There is a contemporary owner's name and address on the front free endsheet. The text block is just beginning to crack at the title page. The pages are ever so slightly yellowed. Number 218 of 250 copies. Charles Kelly was the first to wade into the murky water of John D. Lee. Kelly acquired the diaries form the Lee family and from Rolla Watt who was nephew of W.W. Bishop, the Nevada lawyer who represented Lee at trial. For all of Kelly's spite, he was surprisingly fair to Lee and paved the way for other historians, most notably Juanita Brooks. Volume was printed by Kelly's Western Printing.

        Des Canons, des Munitions? Merci! Des Logis s v p

      1938. LE CORBUSIER. Des Canons, des Munitions? Merci! Des Logis... s.v.p. Oblong 4to., 283 x 230 mm, bound in original illustrated boards, in a new red cloth folding box. Paris: Editions de l'Architecture d'Aujourd'hui, [1938]. |~||~||~||~||~||~| First Edition of one of the scarcest and most sought-after books by Le Corbusier. This profusely illustrated monograph is based on Le Corbusier's involvement with the Pavillon des Temps Nouveaux in 1937. In publishing this plea for the application of the same technologies that were utilized for the fabrication of munitions and armaments of war to the realization of an enlightened architectural urbanism, Le Corbusier was nonetheless struck by the increased relevance of the title applied to his text. The title-page bears the parenthetical note: "Ce titre date de janvier 1937; il n'est nullement une allusion à l'actualité brûlante des réarmements de 1938." The pictorial boards are decorated with a collage of images of fighter planes, artillery shells, a cannon, and a city overview. A near fine copy of a book rarely found intact owing to the fragile nature of the boards. Fotografia Publica 133.

T. L. 1939) Très rare recueil d'articles et de tirés-à-part sur les Indes Néerlandaises et l'Islam indonésien, réunis pas leur auteur, le professeur G.H. Bousquet. Bon état (lég. mouill. en dos, très bon état par ailleurs, on joint qq. notes mauscrites). Ouvrage provenant de la propre bibliothèque de l'auteur, le professeur Georges-H. Bousquet (Docteur en droit en 1923 avec une thèse sur "L'évolution sociale en Hollande 1914-1922"), économiste de l'école de Pareto et Schumpeter, mais également islamisant de l'école de Goldziher et Snouck-Hugronje, professeur aux facultés d'Alger puis de Bordeaux. Peu après sa thèse, il participa à la mission de la SDN pour la restauration financière de l'Autriche.Georges-H. Bousquet résumait ainsi ses travaux en Islamologie (dans les mélanges qui lui furent consacrés dans les Cahiers Pareto en 1965) : "Très en gros, on pourrait dire à ce sujet que je suis parti intellectuellement de la Loi rituelle, morale et juridique de l'Islâm (fiqh) et ai essayé de voir dans quelle mesure cette étrange casuistique (dont j'ai traduit de nombreux textes et dont j'ai exposé les règles dans divers ouvrages) est appliquée, ou non, dans les sociétés musulmanes d'Afrique du Nord surtout (mais également en Indonésie). En particulier, mon attention s'est portée sur le rituel ('ibâdates) presque toujours systématiquement négligé par mes prédécesseurs". Langue: Français [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        THE COMPLEAT GOGGLER: BEING THE FIRST AND ONLY EXHAUSTIVE TREATISE ON THE ART OF GOGGLE FISHING. .by Guy Gilpatric.

      John Lane The Bodley Head. London. - 1938 1st edition, UK issue. 8vo (149 x 222mm). Ppxiv,182. B/w photograph plates, b/w vignettes. Yellow-green cloth, green octopus vignette to upper board, green fish motif and titles to spine. Cloth slightly used, slightly foxed, some soiling to edges else good copy, lacks dust-wrapper. Roy Beddington's copy, his name and address to front end-paper. ". .That most noble and excellent sport perfected and popularised by Guy Gilpatric in the Mediterranean Sea, though long practiced elsewhere by other benighted savages: Setting forth the proper manner of making the goggles, spears and other needful gadgets together with descriptions of many marvels witnessed upon the bottom of the sea and fully exposing the author's cunning methods of swimming, diving and spearing fish and octopi." Gilpatric was a one-time pioneer aviator and then fighter pilot on the Western Front who turned to journalism and novels after the war. Returning to France, he settled on the Riviera where he discovered swimming goggles and fish-spearing. Without wanting to minimise Cousteau's achievements, this book does put him into context; "Commandant Le Prieur wearing his self-contained diving gear. .The cylinder contains a half-hour's supply of compressed air. With this simple apparatus, the inventor and many others dive for sport, science and salvage." Chapters include: Genesis; Merou; Octopus; Goggles; Spears; Swimming and diving; Guns; Fish; Gadgets; Cooking; Garglings of a garrulous goggler, witnessing wonders, telling lies, exploring wrecks, and hunting treasure. "Mr Steve Butler, the English librarian of Juan-les-Pins, made himself a gadget with which he often swims an hour at a stretch without lifting his head for air. It is simply a tube which curves around the back of his head, like a periscope. He either ties it around his neck or holds it in place with wide rubber bands. Due to his rather considerable coefficient of buoyancy, Mr Butler is unable to dive fast enough to spear fish, and uses this device for hunting mermaids." Genuinely pioneering, a true rarity and well worth a read. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

(375 x 288 mm), xxviii, 895 pp/ xi, 897–1807 pp, with a folding plate/ xi, 1809–2817 pp, with a folding map/ xiv, with plates numbered from 1–510 (six coloured)/ xii, with plates numbered from 511–980 (97 coloured)/ xii, with plates numbered from 981–1482 (92 coloured)/ Titles printed in blue and black, 1,482 half tone plates, illustrations, Original blue buckram cloth,gilt-lettered spines; spines starting to fade, fore-edge portions of cloth covers often sunned, spine of volume 3 vertically split but repaired, internally clean and in good condition, published under the auspices of the American Institute For Iranian Art and Archaeology. First edition. During the 1930s, the study of Iranian art and architecture was promoted intensively, and the widely held view that Iran had been the cultural centre of the Muslim world reached a climax. The pertinent events of the decade can hardly be understood without reference to Arthur Upham Pope (1881–1969) a pioneering American expert on Persian/Iranian art and a professor of philosophy and aesthetics, archaeologist, political activist, museum director, and founder of an international scholarly organization. and Phyllis Ackerman - Pope and Ackerman (whom Pope eventually married) were able to persuade some of the greatest authorities of the day to contribute the various chapters, 69 scholars among them John Allan, Prof. Jurgi Baltrusaitis, Stanley Casson, Dr. G. Contenau, R.S. Cooke, Dr. Neilson C. Debevoise, Cecil H. Desch, Rene Doussaud, Dr. Richard Ettinghausen, C.J. Gadd, Rene Grousset, Prof. Ernst Herzfeld, Kurt Erdmann, Samuel Flury, André Godard, C. J. Lamm, Iosif Orbeli, Ernst Kühnel, Louis Massignon and Ugo Monneret de Villiard and others. Some contributors, such as Robert Byron (1905–41) and Eric Schroeder (1904–71), conducted researches in Iran in the 1930s, while others such as Ettinghausen did not make the journey. Not all of the contributors were full-time academics: Ralph Hariri (1892–1969), a merchant banker and art collector, wrote a chapter on metalwork' (Stephen Vernoit, ed., Discovering Islamic art. Scholars, collectors and collections, 1850–1950 pp. 41–4). An index volume (not present here) was published in 1958. Contents of each volume as follows: 1- Text, Pre-Achaemenid, Achaemenid, Parthian and Sasanian Periods. II- Text, Architecture, the Ceramic Arts, Calligraphy and Epigraphy. III- Text, The Art of the Book, Textiles, Carpets, Metalwork, Minor Arts. III- Plates 1-150 Pre-Achaemenid, Achaemenid, Parthian and Sasanian Period, Architecture of the Islamic Period. V- Plates 511-980 Architectural Ornament, Pottery and Fiance, the Art of the Book. VI- Plates 918-1482, Textiles, Carpets, Metalwork, Minor Arts.

        [Original Portrait Photograph of Ethel Waters]

      [New York, 1938. Original borderless gelatin silver print, with semi-matte finish, 8 x 10 inches (25.2 x 20.2 cm). Photographer's blindstamp in lower left corner; Atelier stamp and negative number ("IXN:26" in green ink in Van Vechten's hand on verso), minor bump at one corner, otherwise about fine. A fine portrait of the woman acknowledged as one of the most influential of all jazz and blues singers, often credited as the first African American "superstar." The image dates from the end of the decade that saw her triumphs at the Cotton Club, her Broadway successes (notably CABIN IN THE SKY), and her role as the first African American to star in a commercial coast-to-coast radio show. In this photograph, Waters has donned a narrow brimmed, short crowned hat with a feather and a daisy inserted in the hatband, has her fists on her hips, and is gazing off camera to her left, with a full smile. The Library of Congress Van Vechten collection includes at least four other images dating from the same sitting, but this image is not among those in the LC image database of the collection.

        Our Town

      New York: Coward McCann, 1938. The actor Tom Fadden's copy, inscribed to him by Thornton Wilder, signed by the entire cast, annotated by him for performance, and with an autograph postcard from Wilder laid in. 8vo. Original cloth; original pictorial dust jacket (some fraying and short tears at edges); cloth folding case. Tom Fadden's copy, with his ownership name and address on the verso of the half-title. Presentation copy, inscribed by Wilder to Fadden on the half-title: "For Tom: with the gratitude of Thornton Wilder / N.Y. May 1938." Additionally inscribed by star Frank Craven, and signed by the cast. Further enhancing this exemplary copy are penciled notes by Fadden on 39 pages of the text in which he remarks on performance subtleties or provides himself with visual cues. Tom Fadden originated the role of Howie Newsome, the young milkman and fixture of Grover's Corners. 'Our Town' was first performed at McCarter Theater in Princeton, New Jersey on January 22, 1938. It moved to the Wilbur Theatre in Boston, Massachusetts on January 25, 1938 and made its New York City debut on February 4, 1938 at Henry Miller's Theatre. It won the 1938 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The present copy was inscribed to Fadden after the first performances of the play, and thus connects its early life on the stage via Fadden's performance notes to the moment of its great critical reception in New York. Laid-in is an autograph postcard from Wilder to Fadden, 12 July [1942], saying that he mentioned Fadden to Alfred Hitchcock but that it seemed the director had already filled his vacant role. He writes "I hope that you and I can work together on something again when the war's over." Also laid in are a promotional photo and a Playbill for the run at the Morosco Theatre. Tom Fadden (1895-1980) had a long career, performing on stage, vaudeville, film and television. Among his numerous roles, he is perhaps best remembered as the Tollhouse Keeper on the bridge in 'It's a Wonderful Life' for his reaction to the angel Clarence's explanation of who he is to George Bailey.

        Listen! The Wind

      Chatto & Windus 1938 - Anne Morrow Lindbergh and Charles Lindbergh (1938) ‘Listen! The Wind‘, UK first edition, first printing, published by Chatto & Windus. Signed and inscribed by Anne Morrow and Charles Lindberg on the title page “For Mr and Mrs Hook from Anne Morrow Lindbergh and Charles Lindbergh, [place?] 1938”. Condition: the book is in very good + condition. The book is internally clean with no other inscriptions and no foxing to endpapers or the other pages whatsoever. Boards are clean with a little shelf wear. A few ageing spots to the top page block edges. The dust jacket is good with some loss to the edges and is price clipped. This is the much scarcer UK first edition which is exceptionally scarce signed (far more common is the US first edition). The book comes with a brief note of provenance from the previous owner. As is correctly stated, the Lindbergh couple, following the kidnapping of their young son (‘the crime of the century’) relocated to the UK for a few years to escape the media onslaught back in their home. During their stay in Britain there was opportunity to sign a few UK copies such is in this example. This book tells the story how the couple crosses the Atlantic by plane from Africa to South America in 1933. Anne Morrow wrote the book and Charles wrote the foreword and provided the maps. The book won the National Book Award for Nonfiction in The US and was a bestseller back in those days. Charles Lindbergh was the first man to cross the Atlantic by plane from New York to Paris in 1927. The flight took him 33 1/2 hours in the ‘Spirit of St Louis’. A unique piece of history signed by pioneers and heroes of human achievement! [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      München, Verlag Knorr & Hirth GmbH, 1938 / 1939. Vollständige Ausgabe in 2 Original-Verlags-Handeinbänden der Zeit: feingenarbtes Ganzleder / GLdr / Leder im Format 16 x 21,5 cm mit Rückentitel und Deckel-Liniendekoration in Goldprägung sowie Kopfgoldschnitt, beide Bände mit jeweils ganzseitiger Frontispiz-Fotoabbildung \"Der Schirmherr des Hauses der Deutschen Kunst Adolf Hitler.\" Band 1 mit 143 (Text) + 72 (Abbildungen) Seiten, Band 2 mit 168 (Text) + 64 (Abbildungen) Seiten, die Fotoabbildungen jeweils auf Kunstdruckpapier, mit Verzeichnissen der ausgestellten Werke (Architektur, kunsthandwerkliche Gegenstände) und der Aussteller von kunsthandwerklichen Gegenständen (Adler / Berchtesgaden - Zwengauer Marie / München). - \"Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen einen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen.
