        Die Fiat im Vatikan: "Willkommen sei die Fiat!"

      Rome: Istituto Geografico De Agostini, 1929. First edition. Softcover. vg. Oblong octavo. [4]pp. text, [22]pp. photographs. Gold-stamped stiff red wrappers with golden decoration string along spine. Illustrated title page. Scarce pictorial account of the delivery and presentation of the Fiat 525 Sedan to Pope Pius XI, in 1929. The car was especially made for the Pope by Fiat. It was armored and for the pope's comfort, manufactured with special leather and silk seats. Metal parts of the interior were made of gold and all wood panels were gold plated. The car was personally delivered to the pope (as documented in this book) by Italian champion race-car driver Felice Nazzaro (1881-1940). This car was truly the first Pope mobile! Illustrated with 26 annotated b/w reproductions of photographs. Some of the photographs show the car driving through the Petersplatz, entering the gate of the Vatican, the Pope admiring his new vehicle, his first ride with Nazzaro, etc. Another image shows the Pope giving blessings to employees of Fiat. Edges of wraps creased and chipped. Minor staining to front cover. Text in German. Very good condition. Scarce pictorial documentation of the first car ever given to a pope. Other cars such as the Isotta-Fraschini and American Graham were presented to the Vatican just a year later.

        Sonatina Gijonesa

      Madrid: [Talleres Espasa-Calpe], 1929. First edition. Paper wrappers. Wrappers worn, small chips to edges, some minor sunning, spine cocked, still a very good copy of this very scarce title.. 300 pp. Warmly inscribed by the author to Enrique Naranjo. 'Sonatina Gijonesa,' the second work by the Asturian author, José Barcia, created an uproar because of its caustic portrayal of the social parasitism of the wealthy classes. Though the novel is somewhat autobiographical, and many of the characters were easily identifiable (which no doubt intensified the uproar), the work is marked by an early experimentalism and break with more traditional storytelling. José Fernández Barcia (1887-1948) born in Gijón, emigrated to Argentina, knocked around in dead end jobs, served in the Uruguay National guard and as a trade Unionist in France, but returned to Gijon to write his first work, Andanzas (Gijón, 1924), an autobiography. He again left, traveled to Germany where he taught Spanish, and finally returned to Oviedo to write this novel. (See Alvaro Ruiz de la PeÅ„a, Introducción a la literatura asturiana, pp. 193-196). We could locate only two copies: BN Spain and B. Univ. Oviedo. Provenance: Copy of Enrique Naranjo Martinez, Colombian Consul in Boston. Suares: Escritores y artistas asturianos III, pp.188-191.

      - Signed photograph of the members of The World War Foreign Debt Commission and the Belgian Commission. Signed below by each member, including Herbert Hoover (Secretary of Commerce and future President of the United States), Andrew W. Mellon (Secretary of the Treasury), Frank B. Kellogg (Secretary of State and 1929 winner of the Nobel Peace Prize), Reed Smoot (United States Senator and co-sponsor of the 1930 Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act), Theodore E. Burton (United States Senator from Ohio), Charles R. Crisp, Richard Olney, Edward N. Hurley, Garrard B. Winston, Arthur N. Young and F.G. Blair of the Debt Commission. Also signed by Emile de Cartier, Emile Francqui, Felicien Cattier, Georges Theunis, Robert Silvercruys and Andrew Terlinden of the Belgian Commission. In near fine condition. Matted and framed, which measures 14 inches by 15 inches. Rare. The United States federal World War Foreign Debts Commission Act of February 9, 1922 authorized the creation of a commission, working under Secretary of the Treasury Andrew Mellon, to negotiate repayment agreements with Great Britain and France in the aftermath of World War I. The Commission placed the Allied debt principal to the United States at $11 billion; payments were to be made in graduated 62 annual installments; however, the accrued interest on these payments over a period of 62 years would have increased the debt to approximately $22 billion, although the U.S. did agree to lowered interest rates. Great Britain's debt was reduced 19.7% to $4.6 billion with the interest rate reduced from 5% to 3% for the first ten years of payment to be raised to 3 1/2 % thereafter. France's debt was reduced by 52.8% to $4 billion, without any interest for the first five years of payment. It was then to be increased gradually to 3 1/2 %. The Harding administration made it clearly understood that the United States had no interest in cancellation. This position was widely supported by the public, which felt that those who incur debts should repay them. This tight-fistedness was not well received in Europe, where the image of Uncle Sam slowly gave way to "Uncle Shylock." [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
