        An archive of manuscipt prose, poetry and artwork by an eccentric, and possibly mad, socialist and pro-labor activist, who refers to herself within her dizzying manifestos as Modern Eve or Phebe ThatsEnough

      [Seattle, 1930. Over 200pp., written in colored inks on the versos of a variety of hotel and department store stationeries, some "bound" together with silk ribbons. With 22 cards of mounted Puget Sound seaweed samples by her. Extraordinary archive of poetry, prose and art by a seemingly mentally ill, Socialist labor organizer in Seattle.Born into a Quaker family living just outside of Philadelphia, Phebe's parents were Philip Price, and Ellen Satterthwaite Price. Her father was an engineer in the Union Army during the Civil War (First Regiment of Pennsylvania Reserves) and earlier was, according to Phebe, a gold-seeker in California in 1849. Phebe Price attended Swarthmore College between 1883 and 1885. An avid artist, in one of the manuscripts in this collection it is revealed that she was appaled when her mother sold one of her paintings. Sometime after graduation, she went West, meeting and marrying mining engineer Christian Karl Schott Fogh. By 1900, Phebe and her husband were living in Leadville, Colorado and had been married 12 years and had four children.It would appear that her time near the Colorado mines gave her sympathy for the plight of the American worker, a theme which runs throughout her musings. Another theme is death, particularly as it relates to the death of her husband in 1927. After living for some time in Utah, Phebe arrives in Seattle sometime before 1910. There, she penned the material in this archive, mostly sitting in hotel lobbies or department stores, using stationery from those places, and writing in a variety of inks in a mixture of flowing script and all caps. Much of the material is in verse, very idiosyncratic verse. She signs many of her letters and manuscripts as "PhebeThat'sEnough", apparently a moniker she was given at Swarthmore where her logorrheic tendencies must have already begun.Phebe often refers to herself within her writings as a modern "Eve" and her numerous and lengthy diatribes are a mix of socialism, the labor movement, delusion and religion, but always with Eve being the most enlightened person on earth. She seems to have fallen under the sway of James Arthur Edgerton when she and he both lived in Colorado. Price later and often mixes in quotes of his into her musings [such as "A religion to help the dead is very well-A religion to help the living is better"). Edgerton, a lecturer on New Thought was also the treasurer for the New Thought Bulletin. New Thought holds that Infinite Intelligence, or God, is everywhere, spirit is the totality of real things, true human selfhood is divine, divine thought is a force for good, sickness originates in the mind, and "right thinking" has a healing effect. A great deal of Phebe's writings have to do with the common laborer and the injustices they face.It seems that one of her hobbies was mounting sea plants form the Puget Sound to paper and then writing original poetry on the front in liquid gold or silver paint thus creating raised lettering. A typical card reads: International Peace for the Workers of the World- As eve on time-the centuries roll-all bear the palsied MARK of KINGS-And BLOOD still flows beneath the control that Christian civilization brings. Let all nations stand accursed-beneath their firebrands of WAR- While by TRUTH'S Grace it ranks the FIRST whose banner bears the Bethlehem Star. Swarthmore's Phe-nix-Fogh"The archive is comprised of:Credentials of Mme. "Independence" Mama Liberty [titled on the first leaf]. 20pp., on verso of sheets of Rhodes Department Store stationery.

An extraordinary autobiographical letter, partly written in verse, revealing her peripatetic life, her art and her mental state.

The pale-faced Topsey of the North, beaten and driven from pillar to post, a Revolutionary Recluse now in the land where the noon sun slants.

Perhaps I be a godarn Goose, where pennies don't seem small..."Untitled manuscript, almost entirely in verse and perhaps comprised of multiple manuscripts, but all on The Olympic Hotel stationery, and seemingly all dated 1929, written in variety of colored inks and with applied stars, largely anti-War and pro-Labor, but with autobiographical elements as well. 45pp.3pp. unsent autograph letter, addressed to Dear Lucy, evidently a relative, referring to her Quaker upbringing and other relatives, and closing by taking the blame for the San Francisco earthquakeManuscript in red and blue ink written on verso of a typed letter from Swarthmore College asking for donations.Observations of Eve, The 1st Lady in the Land and Eve is Modern Liberty. 10pp, written in pencil, beginning "Man's Love.

        India. Speeches and an introduction by The Rt. Hon. Winston S. Churchill.

      Paperback, Demy 8vo. (7.5 x 5 ins.) Orange soft paper covers, lettered in black. "India" is, like many of Churchill's speeches a scarce item. It was simultaneously published in hard-back and in the limp cover edition (see above), both editions equally scarce. "The political significance of this little volume is that the subject matter and Churchill's own stance on the question of India largely contributed to his many years in the wilderness during the 1930's period of personal depression in his political fortunes, yet, curiously, a period of preparation, because by distancing himself from so many others, he then became acceptable to all as wartime Prime Minister" (BMC)

        Komandarm 2 (Commander of the Second Army) [Play]

      Gosudarstvennoye izdatelstvo (State Publishing House), Moskva-Leningrad 1930 - Russian language. Octavo 14 x 20 cm. Weight 190 gr. Wrappers, 159 [1] pp. Print run 3000 copies. The book is in Near Fine condition without any visible defects, losses, remarks and stains. Cover corners are lightly bumped, cover bottom edge and spine ends show some fraying; internally library stamp on the title and on one page in the middle, otherwise fine condition. Ilya Selvinsky (1899-1968) was a Russian avant-garde poet, the leader of the Literary Center of Constructivists (LTsK). He is credited with innovations in Russian and Jewish versification. As many Soviet poets, he first became enthusiastic about Communism ideology, and published some leftist experimental poetry collections, but as some Soviet poets, he later became disillusioned with it. In the late 1930s Selvinsky was a major mentor to the younger generation of Soviet Russian poets. During World War II he became the first poet who depicted Holocaust in the occupied Soviet territories. But for the “wrong” depiction of theme poet was subjected to repressions. Through a combination of personal bravery and political navigation, Selvinsky weathered the storms of Stalinism and remained a proud Jew during the most antisemitic of the Soviet years. A poetic virtuoso of high caliber, Selvinsky holds a prominent place in the history of modern Russian poetry and in the history of Jewish literature and Shoah literature. During his life, he published over 30 literary works. In the late 1920s Selvinsky was trying his hand at playwriting. The first tragical verse play “The Second Army Commander” is set in the Civil War and revolves around the conflict between Chub, a partisan leader of peasant origin thrown up by the masses, and Okonny, an army clerk and one time book-keeper who sees in the Revolution the means to self-realisation and glory. Original paper covered boards with attractive constructivist cover design in red and black by artist A. Surikov. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Never a flamboyant performer, he sought tirelessly in practice and rehearsal for the truth and beauty he felt to be an artist's responsibility, and used his formidable powers with a simplicity and concentration that allowed no compromise.

        Revelation. Translated by Una Lady Troubridge.

      London: Victor Gollancz Ltd, 1930 - Octavo. Original black cloth, spine lettered in green. With the dust jacket. Publisher's file copy, with their pencilled mark to front panel of jacket. A little foxing to edges, an excellent copy in the jacket with a couple of shallow chips to extremities. First published in Paris under the title La Débauche in 1924, it is considered to be the first novel about a homosexual man from the mother's point of view. The translator Una Troubridge was the lover of Marguerite Radclyffe Hall. Provenance: from the publisher's archive of Victor Gollancz (1893–1967), one of the revolutionary figures of 20th-century publishing. Everything about Gollancz was distinctive, from his business practices – he flouted convention, backed newcomers extravagantly, and held unique sway over the Book Society choices – to the appearance of his books. The famous yellow jackets, a collaborative design between Gollancz himself and the typographer Stanley Morison, bristle with blurbs, recommendations, and reviews in black and magenta. Prior to its acquisition by Peter Harrington, the archive was shelved together from first publication, though occasionally moved from warehouse to warehouse over the decades. The copies were retained by Gollancz as "archive" or "file" copies and most are stamped in ink with rubber stamps, usually on the front panel of the dust jacket, the front free endpaper, and the title page.

        Lichtbilder (Photographe de Paris).

      Verlag Henri Jonquieres, Paris and Leipzig, 1930. - Limited First Edition, 1 vol., Number 885 of 1000. This is a limited first edition of Atget's iconic photobook "Lichtbilder" published by Verlag Henri Jonquieres, Paris and Leipzig, in 1930 and published simultaneously with the French edition, Photographe de Paris. Berenice Abbott purchased the contents of Atget's studio in Paris--1,300 glass negatives and 7,000 prints assembled in albums--following his death in 1927. She brought the collection to New York with the backing of Julian Levy. Together, they introduced Atget's work to the American public in a series of exhibitions and publications. The German edition of this monograph was published simultaneously in English and French editions on the occasion of the first one-man exhibition organized by Levy and Abbott at the Weyhe Gallery in New York. The book features a frontispiece portrait of Atget by Berenice Abbott and 96 stunning full-page collotypes from the original Atget negatives. Pierre Mac Orlan contributed an essay to the book and his essay concludes, "For many among us Atget's Paris is now no more than a memory whose delicacy is already mysterious. It is worth all the books written on the subject, and without doubt will inspire others" In his book, "The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century", Andrew Roth states, "Over time, Atget's photographs have come to be seen by many as the beginning of modern photography." Measuring approximately 11" x 9.5", the book is bound in the original cream colored cloth boards issued without a dust jacket. A total of 1000 copies were issued with this being number 885. The condition of the book covers is Very Good+ with soiling to the front and rear as well as a crease on the back and minor wear to the edges. Internally, the book is in Near FINE+ with a previous owner's discreet neat signature and stamp on the inside front cover and title page.

        Alice in Wonderland

      Paris: Black Sun Press, 1930. - LAURENCIN (Marie): Alice in Wonderland. [Paris: Black Sun Press, 1930]. Complete set of six colored pastel drawings for this unusual Art Deco vision of ALICE, being the actual finished originals made by MARIE LAURENCIN inside a set of black and white outline designs printed as proofs on wove paper. Her original outlines would have been made directly on lithographic stones for printing whereas this manuscript series was most likely prepared for the printers to create color-separation plates (which explains why the color-printed images in the book do not precisely match the published drawings). Each picture is signed by the artist in colored pencil, with page size measuring 10-7/8 x 14-1/4 inches. TOGETHER WITH: 6 canceled outline PROOFS from the printers E Desjobert, signed and dated “October 1930”, with their printers’ stamp. These measure 9-3/4 x 11-7/8 inches on tinted BFK wove paper. This is one of the artist’s most famous illustrated books and a memorable version of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland”. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Original head-and-shoulders drawing by Alexander Kostomolotsky (1897/8-1975) of the composer in right profile in black crayon. Undated, but ca. 1945-50. Signed by the artist with initials

      Sheet size 217 x 153 mm. With the autograph signature of the composer in pencil below the portrait. "Kabalevsky, like Prokofiev and Shostakovich, wrote a great deal of music for the emerging genre of films with sound... It was during the 1930s that Kabalevsky's style was defined; although Prokofiev served as a model to a certain extent... Kabalevsky's most valuable legacy lies in the field of children's music, not only in terms of the many works he wrote for young performers but also in his development of a system of musical education for children. Some of his children's songs became musical symbols of the Soviet age (Chetvyorka druzhnaya rebyat ('The Band of Four Friends') and Shkol′nïye godï ('Schooldays') in particular) while several of his numerous instrumental concertos written for young musicians gained worldwide popularity." Dina Grigor′yevna Daragan in Grove Music Online. Kostomolotsky also executed drawings of other Russian composers, including Shostakovich, with whom he was friends.
