CREVEL, Rene; illustrated by ERNST, Max; [STERN, James]; translated by BOYLE, Kay:
Paris: The Black Sun Press. 1931. First edition. First edition. A rare inscribed presentation copy from Max Ernst to James Stern. Publisher's black buckram, decorated in gilt to a design by Max Ernst. Illustrated with 19 original photograms by Max Ernst, each with a glassine guard, with the title printed in red. Black endpapers. Housed in a bespoke quarter morocco solander case. A very good copy, the binding square and firm with rubbing and fraying at the spine tips and corners. The contents are entirely complete, clean throughout and without inscriptions or stamps. This work is a fragment from Crevel's novel Babylone. The 19 photograms of Ernst's frottages were completed with the collaboration of Man Ray in his studio after days of trials, with Ernst's rubbings on transparent paper serving as the negative. Ernst had developed his frottage technique as a visual counterpart to the Surrealist ideal of "automatic writing," and the dark visions he produces here perfectly capture the darkness of Crevel's own vision, here translated by Kay Boyle. A fine and strikingly original production.Inscribed by the artist in black ink on the front blank "To Jimmy and Tania / Stern / amitié / Xmas 1941 / Max Ernst". One of 200 copies printed on 'finest Bristol Paper'; there was also an edition of 50 on Hollande paper signed by both the author and the artist; and 5 special copies, each containing 4 of the original artworks. Whilst the signed edition appears sporadically in commerce, presentation copies by Ernst are genuinely rare (rarebookhub traces not a single example in the last 50 … [Click Below for Full Description]

JOYCE, James.
Tokyo: Daiichi Shobo, 1931 & 1934. Tokyo: Daiichi Shobo,, 1931 & 1934. The first non-European translation, inscribed by the translator 2 volumes, octavo. Original limp blue cloth, titles to spines in gilt, beige endpapers. Vol. 2 with the dust jacket and original glassine wrapper. Housed in a dark blue flat-back cloth box by the Chelsea Bindery. Text in Japanese. Occasional pencil annotations. Bookseller's ticket to pastedowns of vol. 2. Spines a little rolled and toned, slight mottling and a couple of marks to cloth, touch of wear to spine ends and tips, occasional foxing and water marks to contents; a very good set, spine of dust jacket to vol. 2 lightly sunned. First edition in Japanese, first printing, presentation copy, inscribed by the translator to fellow novelist Narasaki Tsutomu on the front free endpaper of volume 1, transcribed on a loosely inserted slip, "Ito Sei - Narazaki Tutomu". This edition is the first non-European translation and predates the publication of the work in England and the United States. Much of the more direct Molly Bloom soliloquy is tipped in to this work on xerox sheets, reinstating the expurgation of text omitted to avoid censorship. Despite this omission the sale of the second volume was banned in 1934 on the basis that what was included represented a "portrayal of the lustful meanderings of a middle-aged female". Of this edition volume 1 was printed in a run of 2,000 copies and volume 2 in a run of 1,500. Ito Sei (1905-1969) played a significant role in the transmission of English literature to a Japanese audience, also translating La … [Click Below for Full Description]

STOKER, Bram
Grosset & Dunlap. 1931 Dracula Bram Stoker Horror Gothic Occult Transylvania Vampires Photoplay “There are darknesses in life and there are lights, and you are one of the lights, the light of all lights.” ― Bram Stoker, Dracula Bram Stoker’s ‘Dracula’ has been labeled as one of the most important, popular, and scariest horror novels of all time. It helped establish many horror tropes that would appear in subsequent vampire fantasies, in film, on stage, and in print. While the dating on this book says 1897, this edition was printed in 1931, evidenced by the ‘blood red’ cloth cover as the first photoplay edition. A rare and desirable edition. This printing was the first photoplay edition, published to coincide with the 1931 film illustrated with 4 stills from the movie starring Bela Lugosi & Helen Chandler. Item number: #8922 Price: $550 STOKER, Bram Dracula New York: Grosset & Dunlap, ©1897. [1931]. First photoplay edition.

Price-clipped. A rare jacket in any condition. Personal check dated January 11, 1931 from Zane Grey to famed Swiss watchmaker Albert Wittnauer (Wittnauer is now owned by Bulova) laid-in.

Read the first two pages and you'll see why Willa Cather became so important and I believe not fully recognized. This is the deluxe signed limited First Edition. On sumptuous paper and hand marbled cloth cover. It is a comfortable size to hold and read. Some of her limited editions are rather cumbersome and large, not this one. The original red box is faded, worn and dust stained but the book is bright and beautiful, certainly in fine condition. 280 pages. Because of current conditions, unless special arrangements are made, I am offering the EXCLUSIVELY to U.S. buyers and addresses ONLY. Shipping by insured USPS Priority Mail.

He is widely held to be one of the 20th century's premier logicians. Written at the peak of his career, The Scientific Outlook combines history of science with philosophical scrutiny of the scientific worldview, culminating in cautionary note on the potential implications of a future where science supersedes social and political values.

Lyon, George Seymour
1931. Rare half-tone portrait of Canadian golf legend George Lyon. Signed by Lyon, "Geo. S. Lyon." Period frame. The entire piece measures 8.25 inches by 5.75 inches. In very good condition. Although he only began playing golf at the age of 38 due to lack of available golf courses in most areas of Canada before that date, George Seymour Lyon won the gold medal in golf in the 1904 Summer Olympics in St. Louis, Missouri, at age 46, only eight years after beginning the sport. He won the Canadian Amateur Championship a record eight times between 1898 and 1914, the last time in his 56th year. He was also runner-up in that event on two further occasions. He won the Canadian Seniors' Golf Association Championship ten times between 1918 and 1930, the final time in his 72nd year; these events were staged before the inauguration of the Canadian Senior Golf Championship by Golf Canada.

Genova / Roma, 1931-1939. Genova / Roma,, 1931-1939.. In-8 gr., brossura orig., pagine variabili. Di questa prestigiosa rivista di poesia, bimestrale poi mensile, offriamo tutto il pubblicato in 57 fascicoli, dal 1931 (Anno I, n. 1, gennaio-febbraio), al 1939 (Anno VIII, n. 12, dicembre), così composti: 1931/1932/1933/1934: 24 numeri - 1935: 12 numeri (in 8 fascicoli) - 1936 le pubblicazioni sono sospese - 1937: 10 numeri (in 8 fascicoli: n. 1, marzo / n. 9-10, nov.-dic.) - 1938: 12 numeri (in 6 fascicoli) - 1939: 12 numeri (in 11 fascicoli). “La rivista, fondata a Genova, è diretta da Adriano Grande, affiancato da un Comitato di redazione composto da Debenedetti, Montale, Sbarbaro, Solmi. Nel 1934 si trasferisce da Genova a Roma dove si forma un nuovo comitato direttivo, ulteriormente modificato nel 1935 (quando "Circoli" diventa mensile e da rivista di poesia si tramuta in rivista di poesia, letteratura, critica, arte e politica) e di cui fanno parte Agnino, Falqui, Gallian, Grande, Ungaretti. Proseguendo nella tradizione di altri periodici liguri come ‘Espero’ e in parte ’Riviera Ligure’, "Circoli" rivolge le sue attenzioni quasi esclusivamente alla poesia e si trasforma in un importante luogo di convegno della poesia italiana degli anni 1930. Positivo rilievo viene dato, almeno nei primi fascicoli, alla divulgazione dei testi della poesia moderna straniera (il n. 6 del 1933 è tutto dedicato alla “moderna poesia nordamericana”). Dal 1937 in poi la rivista favorisce un sempre maggior accostamento alle … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cette édition reprend les codes et le format d'un volume publié l'année précédente, également pour un ouvrage de l'Arétin, La Putain errante, aussi illustré par André Collot (12 illustrations). Pierre l'Arétin est né en 1492 à Arezzo (l'Arétin signifiant « venant d'Arezzo »). Banni de sa ville natale, il passe une décennie à Pérouse avant d'être envoyé à Rome, où le riche banquier Agostino Chigi, mécène de Raphaël le prend sous son aile. L'Arétin fait parler de lui à Rome à travers ses satires mordantes et les Sonetti lussuriosi (Sonnets luxurieux), pièces assez crues qui servirent d'accompagnement textuel à 16 illustrations pornographiques de Giulio Romano (Jules Romain). Cet écart lui vaut de perdre la protection du pape Léon X. Ses Ragionamenti, propos d'une prostituée à divers interlocuteurs composés comme des raisonnements en forme de dialogue platonicien, tournent en dérision la sociét … [Click Below for Full Description]

Attractive copy of Hammett's fourth novel. "Like Personville in Red Harvest, the city is controlled by crooked politicians in league with various mobster factions; but in The Glass Key Hammett gives us an insider's view of the corruption and in fact creates a corrupt political henchman as his protagonist" (Pronzini & Muller, p.335). Widely regarded as one of Hammett's finest works, The Glass Key was serialized in the pages of Black Mask between March-June, 1930; Hammett would later settle down and revise the novel for Knopf, who published it first in London in January, 1931, and then in New York in April, 1931.

Braun, Nikolai L., Aleksandr A. Prokof'ev, V. Saianov and Kirnarskii, designer
[Leningrad]: Izd-vo pisatelei v Leningrade, [1931]. Octavo (17.5 × 12.5 cm). Publisher's black cloth, embossed in silver; 51, [4] pp. Cover, title and half-title designed by Mark Kirnarskii. Boards lightly worn and rubbed; still about very good. First edition. A collection of verse commemorating the death of Vladimir Maiakovsky (1893-1930), considered the greatest Soviet poet at the time of his suicide at the age of 36. The suicide came as a shock to the fans of the poet as much as to the Soviet state, of which he was a previously a tireless champion. Concern that his suicide would be seen as a condemnation of the more recent cultural and political policies, the Soviet cultural authorities promoted the "disappointed love" narrative of his death and continued to celebrate his verse as truly Soviet, erecting monuments and publishing collections such as this one. The poets of the "Leningrad" group contributing to this collection -- Nikolai Braun, Aleksandr Prokof'ev, and Vissarion Saianov -- were all relatively party-loyal authors, who had long careers in the Soviet literary establishment. The graphic artist Mark Kirnarskii provided the striking modernist cover design for this edition, and later also designed covers for texts by Anna Akhmatova and Ilya Erenburg. Turchinskii, p. 90. One of 3200 printed copies. A version of this edition with red boards was also published. KVK and OCLC show copies Harvard, Yale, Michigan (marked as missing), Notre Dame, Getty, Stanford, British Library and Melbourne. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
