‎LAZARNICK, NATHAN (1879-1955)‎

‎A Superbly Composed Fashion Still Life by the Russian-Born American Photographer Nathan Lazarnick‎

‎Circa 1935. 1935. Circa 1935. 1935. Fine. - sc The 7-3/4 inch high by 9-7/8 inch wide black & white glossy photograph playfully depicts what can best be called a fashion still life.

The photographer's name and address are stamped in blue on the verso with editorial annotations also penciled on the verso. Near fine. <p>This wonderful image reminds one of the Hollywood musicals of the 1940's which often featured dance and song numbers starring the female lead centered in the front row, escorted by an army of suavely attired male dancers lined in columns behind her at the opening of the dance number. Fine .‎

‎THE GREAT AMERICAN BAND WAGON,‎

‎New York: Literary Guild of America, 1928. Hardcover. While this might have been a tongue-in-cheek criticism of the excesses of the roaring twenties it is amazing how it still describes the United States -whether it is taken to the road in the chapters The once open road and Caravan or the fascination with Bigger and better murders, golf, boxing, movies, junk food (soda fountains where the food is bogus even though wrapped in strictly sanitary packages) and more. Illustrated with drawings by Howard W. Willard. 263 pp. Very good in dark blue cloth with gilt lettering (spine rubbed, lettering faded), lacking the dust jacket.‎
