        The Tale of Little Pig Robinson.

      London: Frederick Warne and Co., Ltd.,, 1930. Octavo. Original blue cloth, printed black pictorial label to front cover, titles to spine gilt, pictorial endpapers. With the dust jacket. Frontispiece, 5 illustrated colour plates, and 22 full-page black and white illustrations by the author. An excellent copy in the slightly rubbed dust jacket, with a little toning to edges and small chip to head of spine. First UK edition, first impression. Though this was the last of the Peter Rabbit books, it is one of Potter's earliest stories, written in 1883 at Ilfracombe. She revisited the story after the publication of The Fairy Caravan, in response to her American publishers requesting another story. She appeased Warne, who were chagrined at her decision not to allow publication of The Fairy Caravan as a trade edition in the UK, by offering the story to both publishers; it was likely published simultaneously.

        The Works.

      New York: Doubleday, Doran & Co.,, 1930. The Crowborough Edition. 24 volumes, octavo (216 × 145 mm). Original red half morocco, spines lettered in gilt, pink cloth sides in imitation of watered silk, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. Photogravure frontispiece portrait with tissue guard by Pirie MacDonald to Volume I. Spines slightly faded, some spines slightly marked, slight chipping to headcaps of a couple of volumes, head of initial and final leaves very slightly cockled. An excellent set. First complete collected edition, number 9 of 760 sets signed by the author in volume I, of which 750 were for sale and 10 were for presentation. This set is believed to be one of the ten presentation copies in a deluxe publisher's binding; Doyle signed the sheets for the edition, but his death on 7 July 1930 before its final publication prevented him from inscribing the presentation copies. The Crowborough edition—named after the Sussex town where Doyle's home, Windlesham, was located—has double the number of volumes of the Author's Edition of 1903, and is generally considered the best collected edition of Doyle's works. The introductions are reprinted from the Author's Edition, and the text is set from the existing editions without any corrections.

        Laments for the Living

      New York: Viking Press, 1930. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Very Good. 1st edition of her first book of prose, a collection of 13 short stories. Fine in very good, clean dustjacket (tear and minute nicks at spine tip) prime condition for this title not often seen in this condition. Includes, Big Blonde, winner of the 1929 O. Henry Award, The Sexes, You Were Perfectly Fine, A Telephone Call and 9 others. Parker was a high poet, wry short story writer, sly critic, dry, acid lipped reviewer for The New Yorker under the byline "Constant Reader" and my favorite member of the Algonquin Roundtable, and the my enthusiasm for her petulance towards boundaries, and my freedom from the competition of an equally fine copy, adequately indulge my inclination to price this book $1,000, and if no one buys it, I'll just die with it on my breast. But someone will. Dorothy Parker (1893-1967) ruled for decades as the wittiest woman in America. Even as a young girl (creative minds have always been known to survive b ad training), she saw herself as an outsider, getting thrown out of the Blesses Sacrament Convent School for maintaining that the Immaculate Conception was "spontaneous combustion.".

        Album of photographs from service in Waziristan, 1930-1.

      Waziristan: [but probably compiled at the] Staff College, Quetta,, 1930-1. Foolscap light card green folder (280 x 175 mm). Printed paper label, "Staff College Quetta. North West Frontier Tour. 1930" mounted to front panel. 12 black thick-paper leaves tipped in, with 94 original photographs (all approx. 82 x 56 mm, 4 of these combined to make 2 panoramas) and 19 professional silver gelatin prints (approx. 90 x 140 mm; signed and captioned in the images) mounted rectos and versos, with hand-written captions in white ink. Folder slightly sunned, rubbed and marked, second leaf tipped in at a slight angle, a very small number of photographs lifting at edges, leaves faintly creased along fore edges, the images unaffected. Very good condition overall, with only a minimum of fading to the photographs. Deceptively extensive photograph album of military service in Waziristan during the Afridi and Red Shirt rebellions, with almost 100 original photographs of views, cantonments, operations, and native and British troops, complemented by attractive prints (mostly views) by prolific North-West Frontier photographers B. R. Tundan, B. D. Arora and Sons, and Randolph Bezzant Holmes, all exhaustively captioned and arranged in what appears to be broad chronological sequence. The compiler seems to have approached Waziristan from the south (probably Multan), crossing the Indus at Dera Ismail Khan and passing through Manzai, Chagmalai and Splitoi before arriving at Wana, the British camp there and the various surrounding picquets documented in a series of photographs including native troops (Madras sappers and miners, a khasadar at Madijan) and one of the 10th Baluchistan Regiment (possibly his own unit); thence to Shagai Fort (with a photograph of two officers amusingly captioned "'Dreadnought' & another heavyweight, Major Meade 2/0 Rajputana Rifles") and Peshawar, depicted in a general view and two attractive street scenes including a "wayside shave". From Peshawar the unit seems to have travelled along the Khyber Pass to the Indo-Afghan frontier at Michni Kandao, documented in a series of photographs, with stops at Landi Kotal (the photograph depicting a unit of Gordon Highlanders) and Fort Salop. The next sequence of photographs is perhaps the most indicative of British operations in this period, depicting the construction of the "New Bridge" over the Bara River on the Khajuri Plain: "After the tribal uprising of 1919-1920, it was decided during the spring of 1922 to locate the main garrison of Waziristan at Razmak. The self-contained cantonment, capable of holding 10,000 men, was established in January 1923. New roads linking the garrisons and camps in the area were constructed to permit speedier troop movements" (National Army Museum, online). Original photographs depicting the subsequent journey, up to Razmak past Dhatta Khel, is accompanied by three Tundan photographs depicting the newly-laid Waziristan Circular Road. Another attractive Tundan print depicts the "Razmak Column in action", and an original photograph intriguingly depicts Brigadier Arthur Mills, commander of the Razmak Brigade, inaugurating the Razmak "golf course" on Christmas Day, 1930. The garrison is portrayed in a number of professional and original photographs, interspersed with a Tundan print of a "Wazir woman", Arora photographs of Jandola Bridge and "Representative types, South Waziristan Scouts, Jandola", original images of Merobi tribesmen, a column of Gurkhas near a "typical Wazir tower", and several original views of Takki Zam and Ahnai Tangi, followed by a closing sequence of street scenes back in Peshawar and views of the new Attock Bridge, redesigned by Sir Francis Callaghan in 1929.

        FIVE ORIGINAL PEN AND INK DRAWINGS DONE IN THE STYLE OF A TIJUANA BIBLE

      1930. Wear along the edges to the cover and panel 1, with closed tears and slight chipping along the right side, some soiling; all five have thumbtack markings to the corners. Overall Very Good. Five original pen and ink drawings: four numbered panels measuring 8.5 x 11" and what appears to be the cover illustration, measuring 9.5 x 11". A take off on the George McManus Jiggs and Maggie characters; here "Jiggs" is renamed "Giggs". Panel one begins with Maggie listening to a "romantic" radio program, "How Romantic, I Wish Giggs was that way"; panel two, Maggie reacted to Giggs' advances and gasping in shock, "Giggs! You Brute!", as he mounts her; panel three has the static from the radio throwing Maggie off Giggs; and the last panel is a picture of Giggs in a blizzard of dishes, with his quirky ending, by saying: "I hear the angels flapping their wings now." (a standard McManus ending) All five drawings have the name "Joe Scanavino" in pen on the back. While only consisting of 4 pages, unlike an 8 page tijuana bible, these drawing are very similar in style and layout; and all are very competent in draftsmanship and execution. In our research, so far, we have not come across a hardcopy or tijuana bible that uses these images.

        The Bridge

      New York: Horace Liveright, 1930. 1st American edition and 1st trade edition (a rawly edited, 275 copy, Paris limited edition preceded). The Bridge is a metaphor of American power, and was itself a bridge between past and present, a transition from 19th to 20th century poetry. Fine in a very good jacket, spine faded, tape removed, short tears strengthened, but integral and superior for it. Author to editor signed presentat- ion copy (in ink), a lofty association, inscribed to Tom Smith, editor in chief for Horace Liveright, the publisher of The Bridge, and it is Tom Smith's fingerprints that are all over this poem, perfected here by his precise editing, revising and correcting, and the nearly unfathomable Crane needed editing more than most. Ref: Connolly 100. Tom Smith was an enormity, a leading force in the American literary renaissance that changed literature and the relationship between it, and the American public, profoundly and forever. And it was the relationship between Horace Liveright and Tom Smith, that was the inspirational model for Ben Hecht and Charles Mac Arthur (yet another relationship), as they co-wrote and co-directed their 1935 film noir (if anything before 1941 is technically classified as noir), The Scoundrel, which won the Oscar for best screenplay. This is the best copy of The Bridge I've ever heard of. Fine / very good.

They include Man and Superman [1905], John Bull's Other Island (written [1904] at the request of William Butler Yeats for the Irish Literary Theatre), Major Barbara [1905], Fanny's First Play (1912), Androcles and the Lion (1912), Pygmalion [1913], Heartbreak House [written 1913, produced 1920], Back to Methuselah [1921], and Saint Joan [1923]. He received the Nobel Prize in literature in 1925…Shaw wrote many essays on socialism, politics, and economics and one longer work, The Intelligent Woman's Guide to Socialism and Capitalism (1928)" (Benét's Reader's Encyclopedia).Gabriel Pascal (1894-1954) was a Hungarian-born film producer and director whose best known films were made in the United Kingdom. A follower of Meher Baba, Pascal was the first film producer to successfully bring the plays of George Bernard Shaw to the screen. His most successful production was Pygmalion, for which Pascal received an Academy Award nomination as its producer. Later adaptations of Shaw plays included Major Barbara (1941) and Caesar and Cleopatra (1945).Ayot St Lawrence is a small village and civil parish in Hertfordshire, England, between Harpenden and Welwyn. There are several other Ayots in the area, including Ayot Green and Ayot St Peter. George Bernard Shaw lived in the village, at Shaw's Corner, from 1906 until his death in 1950; his ashes are scattered there. The house is open to the public as a National Trust property.Laurence A198b.

      Varshe: B. Kletskin(1930). First edition. Original paper wrappers in protective cardboard binding. 8vo. 49 pages. 24cm. In Yiddish. Title translates to "Sixteen: A Collection of End Compositions of Sixteen Graduate of the Shalom Aleichem Elementary School in Chicago. " Rare collection of writings from elementary-age boys and girls from secular-Yiddish Chicago schools but published in Warsaw. "Yiddish schools in America were always supplemental schools, meeting several times a week after public schools. This was a major difference between the Yiddish schools in Poland which were, if chosen by the parents, the primary day school of the child, and the Yiddish schools in America which never developed a single Yiddish day school. On the political spectrum of the Yiddish cultural world in the 1920s and 1930s, the Sholem Aleichem Folk Institute and its schools, and the Yiddish camp, Camp Boiberik, were more to the right, with less emphasis on socialism and more stress on the humanistic values that can be learned from traditional Judaism and applied to the modern Jewish experience. Founded in 1918, the Institute lasted until the 1970s, and was a national movement which attained its greatest support in the 1930s" (UTexas, 2017) .
