      Charles Scribner's Sons, 1929. - First edition. Presentation inscription by the author on the front fly leaf, "To Mr. John V.

On page 334 he has edited the text in ink at two places.Cloth is moderately soiled, lightly foxed, an old, small water stain is visible along the bottom margin of the first 25 pages, but not affecting the text, else a good copy in dust jacket, with light wear to the spine ends, and corners.The murders start with the body of Robin who is found with an arrow through the heart. A note found dealing with the murder was part of a nursery rhyme and signed by 'Bishop'. The only witness may have been Mrs. Drukker and Adolph, but they are not talking. As the murders progress, each one is accompanied by a nursery rhyme. It is up to Philo Vance to unravel the clues and unmask the identity of the murderer known as 'Bishop.'

Der Ingenieur mag, obwohl politisch ein Sozialist, von dem modischen Klages und seinem 'Kosmogonischen Eros' vernommen haben, doch sein Chok war naiv [.] nicht reaktionär [.]". - Beiliegend 2 Typoskripte: eine vollständige Abschrift dieses Textes mit Korrekturen von fremder Hand (Satzvorlage, 1 S., gr.-4to) sowie eine verworfene Kurzfassung (¼ S., gr.-4to) mit einem eh.

        Report on Horne Zoological Corporation

      Los Angeles, 1929. 100 pp of typed documents and an additional 50 album leaves mounted with approximately 50 photographs (various sizes and processes), and various documents. Folio. Limp leatherette with title and recipient name stamped in gilt to upper cover. Large black quarter morocco clamshell box, gilt. 100 pp of typed documents and an additional 50 album leaves mounted with approximately 50 photographs (various sizes and processes), and various documents. Folio. "It is proposed that a COMPLETE ZOOLOGICAL GARDENS be opened to the public on a fifty cent admission basis, which is to be properly laid out as an attractive Zoological and Botanical Garden with the finest and largest private collection of animals, birds and reptiles to be seen anywhere on the continent..." The advent of the motion picture industry in California had many wide-ranging ramifications on the business world and one was that it created a new market for firms who traditionally supplied animals to circuses and zoos (both public and private, owned by the likes of William Randolph Hearst). This archive is a report by the Investment Auditors of California for the Horne Corporation that was looking to expand by establishing a zoological garden in the environs of Los Angeles. The Horne Corporation was the largest and most successful of its type at the time, apparently the only company in the US that could completely outfit a circus with both animals and show equipment. They were to purchase the Los Angeles Zoological Garden and Jungle Studio (for $250,000) and thereby sought to provide a similarly complete service to the film studios with both animals and suitable locations for film sets. The head of the company, I.S. Horne, for whom this report was compiled, commenced trading in animals from Kansas City (MO) around 1914. The range of animals at the their disposal included big game, birds, reptiles and many of the documents concern the prospect of importing reindeer from Alaska. The material is held in a presentation album and includes the certificate of incorporation in Wilmington, Delaware, May 13, 1929, as well as the by-laws of the corporation, minutes of the first meeting, the proposal for Los Angeles Zoological Garden and Jungle Studio and a balance sheet. At this stage the company had total assets of $57,700, & liabilities of $625,388.46; an enumeration of the various animals in inventory including wildebeest, sables, leopard, lynx, Rhodesian baboons, bushbaby, and a large aardvark. Of real interest are the plans for the park, including artist's impressions, which would be furnished with circus attractions, "Monkey Island", jungle setting for motion pictures, and an acknowledgment that "before the introduction of the motion picture industry, the art of showmanship was not quite so highly developed as it is today..." In fact, one of the first pictures they supplied animals for was - appropriately enough - Trader Horn, which was nominated for the 1931 Academy Award for Best Picture. On a more practical level, there is a "Descriptive Classification of Principal Commercial Wild Animals" which lists 340 different animals in some details. There is also an account of hunting wild animals in East Africa as well as a section on animals that have been trained to hunt by man. Furthermore there is also much correspondence which provides much insight into the game industry, its clients and the prospects for its future. Horne's venture subsequently became known as the World Jungle Compound, in Thousand Oaks, California, eventually being acquired by 20th Century Fox studios. This archive is a record of a new phase of the entertainment industry.

        Das Blumenbuch (Volumes I - III)

      [Mainzer Presse, 1929-1930], [Mainz, Germany] - The idea for this work came from a trip Rudolph Koch took in Germany with his young children to gather wildflowers; he drew them, and then enlisted the help of his friend Fritz Kredel to make woodcuts from his drawings (from A Century for the Century by Hutner and Kelly). "Fritz Kredel learned his trade as assistant to Rudolph Koch, in Offenbach during the 1920's; by the time he left Germany he was a celebrated illustrator. The woodcut and pen and ink were his preferred mediums, and one of his masterpieces -- in collaboration with Koch -- was 'Das Blumenbuch' (''The Flower Book'') of 1929-30, for which Kredel cut more than 250 color flower illustrations in wood. Woodcuts, he felt, had a crispness and sharpness that could not be achieved in any other medium" (from a NY Times review of Centennial Exhibit of Kredel's work). The woodcuts were then hand-colored by Emil Wollner. ***DESCRIPTION: All text in German; each volume contains hand-colored plates printed on the rectos only, with each page displaying one flower, some arranged by season ("From Winter to Early Spring" and so on) or locale ("In the Meadow", etc); Table of Contents at the rear, a total of 250 plates between the three volumes. Limited edition of 1000 copies, unnumbered (which followed a special edition of only 20 copies); 12" tall. ***CONDITION: All three volumes in near fine condition with light wear to the head of the spines, some rubbing to one corner, and a very light, stray mark on the front of Volumes I and III. Volume II has duplicate plate numbers 167-170 bound in, no plates missing. Lacking slipcases. ***CITATION: A Century for the Century no. 20. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply, please contact seller for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

      Villeneuve, 4. II. 1929. - 8vo. 4 pp. Hübscher Brief an Maurice Delamain vom Verlagshaus Stock über Goethe und über die Brüder Jérôme (Ernest) und Jean Tharaud: „[ ] Je vous remercie de m’avoir envoyé un nouvel exemplaire des Lettres de Goethe à Mme de Stein. Les Affinités sélectives seraient certainement un livre intéressant à publier, bien qu’en le Goethe de ce temps – pleinement maître de son intelligence – la sève du sentiment commençât à se figer.Mais a-t-on jamais donné [ ] une bonne traduction des Lehrjahre de Wilhelm Meister? Il y a là un flot de ,poésie et vérité’. Surtout les premiers livres sont d’une beauté, d’une fraîcheur et d’une spontanéité, d’une richesse d’émotion et d’observation – qui me paraissent uniques dans l’œuvre de Goethe – (bien sûr en laissant à part les incomparables poésies). – Je suis convaincu que ce serait une découverte pour le grand public français.Vous voulez bien me parler d’Ernest Tharaud. Permettez-moi de vous répondre en quelques mots confidentiels. J’ai beaucoup aimé Ernest Tharaud (non son frère) et je conserve un souvenir affectueux de ces années, dont il me semble avoir imparfaitement rappelé l’amicale intensité, dans son livre sur Péguy. C’était pour lui et moi, des années difficiles; et nous nous sommes alors mutuellement aidés; il m’a et je lui ai témoigné une confiance entière. Cela ne peut s’oublier.D’autant moins ai-je compris son éloignement et son silence, depuis quatorze ans, lorsque j’étais livré à tant d’inimitiés. Quatorze ans de silence dont une grande épreuve. On ne retrouve plus après les hommes et les sentiments comme on les avait quittés. L’affection demeure peut-être, mais la confiance est blessée. Il y a dans ces conditions quelque peine à reprendre l’entretien interrompu. On ne peut plus se parler sans arrière-pensée. De plus, en quatorze ans, chacun de nous a marché. J’ai peur que nos chemins ne se soient beaucoup écartés.C’est pourquoi je ne croirais pas opportun de nous revoir. Mais puisque l’occasion s’en offre grâce à vous, je serai heureux qu’Ernest Tharaud sût que je lui garde ma gratitude de l’amitié d’autrefois [ ]" - Mit Eingangsstempel der Librairie Stock, Paris.

        US Steel Products Company Aerial Tramway Photograph Collection, Circa 1900-1935

      Very Good with no dust jacket. Ephemera. A collection of photographs and negatives from the US Steel Products Company that constructed aerial tramways in the early 1900s. The photographs are in envelopes labeled by company, with over 70 operations listed, mostly mining and logging companies, some still in existence today. Also included is a set of indexed file cards of potential clients spanning several decades. The cards list the status of tramway projects, records of sales catalogs mailed out, and other information on sales leads. A separate folder contains several more prints and three postcards of European people-moving tramways, postmarked at the Hotel Astoria, Leipzig, 1929. The postcards are from M. P. Morrison, who filed a 1929 patent application related to tramways. The photo envelopes contain a mix of full-size negatives and prints, generally good and sometimes excellent in quality and contrast, in very good condition, mostly 3"x5". Some contain brief content notes, notes and labels written on the negatives, or dates. Non-tramway photograph subjects are also interspersed throughout the collection, with people and historic buildings from the mining town of Weaverville, California and Eagle, Fortymile, and Seldovia in Alaska, hikers at the tops of Mount Baldy and Mt. Hood in the Cascades, and women at the Rawley Mine in Colorado. Other scenes show tree jacks on giant trees, men loading ore buckets and moving lumber, men shoveling in deep snow trenches for the Crown Willamette Paper Company tramway, and men on horses. There are many well-composed machinery shots with good contrast in addition to many, many tower and tram line views, with close-ups of the tramway engineering details and the wire rope used. US Steel worked with the Trenton-Bleichert design for aerial tramways, on systems often many miles long on steep grades. This collection provides an in-depth look at these massive engineering projects as well as a personal glimpse of the people of the lumber camps and mining towns. ; .

The Committee itself was composed of such notaries as Queen Elizabeth of Belgium, King Carol II of Romania, John D Rockefeller, Marie Curie, and Albert Einstein, who personally gathered the present manuscripts over the course of seven years (1925-32). Among the public figures who contributed to the project were dignitaries from the newly-created League of Nations' member states. "Rebellion sleeps in the heart of man, may he be cursed who awakens it'. Thus spoke our Prophet. This is still the living doctrine of modern Islam. How could it not prefer the pure and simple joys of peace to the torments and dark nights of war! [Signed] Benghabrit". Si Khaddour Benghabrit rose to prominence under the French regime in Morocco . He is also remebered for his courage in saving the lives of the many Jews during the Second World War by disguising them as Muslim members of his Paris mosque - somewhere between 500 and 1600 people were saved from deportation in this way, and the Medal of Justice has been awarded to the descendants of Benghabrit by the Yad Vashem Memorial. Pax Mundi. Livre d'or de la paix. Enquete universelle de la Ligue mondiale pour la paix sous le haut patronage de son comite d'honneur avec l'approbation de la Societe des nations, du Bureau international du travail et de la Cour permanente de justice internationale.

        Eigenh. Brieffragment mit U.

      O. O., 24./25. Juli 1929. - ½ S. 8vo. An die französische Germanistin Germaine Goblot betr. einer Begegnung in den Sommermonaten. &#150; Kraus habe eine Woche in Böhmen zu tun und wolle hernach nach auf der Île de Porquerolles, der größten Insel von Hyères, etwas ausspannen: &#132;Bitte, sehr geehrtes Fräulein Goblot, wissen Sie in der dortigen Gegen von einem Punkt, wo es Wasser, Ruhe und etwas Grün gibt, das ich in diesem Sommer &#150; außer dem vom Vorgarten der französischen Gesandtschaft, an dem ich täglich vorbeigehe &#150; noch nicht gesehen habe. Wenn nun dergleichen nicht zu weit von dem Ort wäre, wo Sie sich aufhalten (aber die Garonne ist wohl ein großes Gebiet), dann wäre vielleicht die Begegnung vor dem September möglich. Jedenfalls bitte ich Sie auch um die Freundlichkeit, mir mitzuteilen, ob Sie die Reise nach Wien &#150; was sucht man da nur! &#150; verschieben könnten. Wenn sogleich abgesandt, würde Ihre Nachricht mich noch in Wien (IV. Lothringerstraße 6, Tür 2) erreichen. Hoffentlich konnten Sie meine Schrift, mit der nur meine Setzer umgehen können, lesen. Die Vermeidung der deutschen Schrift, die ich sonst schreibe, möge die Unhöflichkeit wettmachen, daß ich nicht in französischer Sprache erwidert habe [.]". &#150; Kraus&#146; Übersetzerin hatte in diesem Jahr in der &#132;Revue d&#146;Allemagne" den Aufsatz &#132;Karl Kraus et la lutte contre la barbarie moderne" veröffentlicht. &#150; Bl. 2 eines Doppelblattes; eine Volltranskription des gesamten Briefes beiliegend.

        Störungen des Trieb- und Affektlebens (Die parapathischen Erkrankungen), 10 Bände.

      Berlin und Wien, Urban & Schwarzenberg / Leipzig, Wien, Bern, Verlag der psychotherapeutischen Praxis, 1922 - 1929. - Hauptwerk des österreichischen Arztes und Psychoanalytikers Wilhelm Stekel (1868 - 1940). Stekel war zunächst in seiner Wiener Praxis, die er 1894 eröffnete, als Allgemeinmediziner tätig, wandte sich aber unter dem Einfluß Freuds, den er um 1891 kennengelernt hatte, früh der Psychoanalyse zu. Dabei entwickelte er eine eigene Therapieform, die so genannte "Aktive Psychoanalyse", in der er die unbewußten inneren Konflikte seiner Patienten auf direktem Wege anzusprechen und offenzulegen versuchte. Nach dem "Anschluß" Österreichs 1938 floh Stekel über die Schweiz nach England und betrieb in London eine psychoanalytische Privatpraxis. Stekels in zehn Bänden erschienenes Hauptwerk, die "Störungen des Trieb- und Affektlebens", wurden ins Englische, teilweise auch ins Französische und Niederländische übersetzt und - in den USA - bis in die siebziger Jahre hinein immer wieder neu aufgelegt. Alle Bände mit zahlreichen anschaulich geschilderten Fallanalysen. Alle Bände - bis auf Bd. V - mit Sachregister und Autorenregister. Einige Bände im Abbildungen und Illustrationen. Bände im Einzelnen: Bd. I. Nervöse Angstzustände und ihre Behandlung. Vierte, vermehrte und verbesserte Auflage, 1923, 685 S. Bd. II. Onanie und Homosexualität. (Die homosexuelle Parapathie). Dritte, verbesserte und vermehrte Auflage, 1923, 600 S. Bd. III. Die Geschlechtskälte der Frau. (Eine Psychopathologie des weiblichen Liebeslebens). Dritte, verbesserte und vermehrte Auflage, 1927, 557 S. Bd. IV. Die Impotenz des Mannes. (Die psychischen Störungen der männlichen Sexualfunktion). Zweite, vermehrte und verbesserte Auflage, 1923, 572 S. Bd. V. Psychosexueller Infantilismus (Die seelischen Kinderkrankheiten der Erwachsenen). Mit 8 Textabbildungen, 1922, 616 S. Bd. VI.

        Ms. Brief mit eigenh. Unterschrift

      Konstantinopel, 31. X. 1929. - Gr.-4to. 1 ¼ p. An seinen Anwalt Gérard Rosenthal über die 1929 von Trotzki mitbegründete trotzkistische Zeitung &#132;La Verité": &#132;La Vérités'améliore visiblement. On voit que les articles pour la plupart sont écrits avec attention et soigneusement. Je vous ai déjà écrit quelques impressions dans ma lettre précédente. Pour préciser mes idées sur son contenu, je vous dirai quelques mots cette fois sur la bibliographie. Les articles d'A.A. sont très bons et très utiles, mais par le choix des livres et par la manière de les critiquer plus appropriés à une revue marxiste qu'à un hebdomadaire politique. On préférerait voir dans les colonnes bibliographiques de laVéritédes articles sur lesCahiers du bolchevisme, sur laRevue marxiste, sur l'Humanitémême, et sur d'autres journaux du parti; naturellement, aussi sur toutes les éditions du Komintern, du Profintern, de la C.G.T.U, etc.Je crois que par l'intermédiaire de la presse, [des éditions mêmes] et d'autres éditions du parti on pourrait mettre en lumière les traits essentiels de l'activité toute entière du parti. Les Cahiers pompeux du bolchevisme avec leur papier de luxe, leurs vignettes originales, etc., démontrent la richesse matérielle et la pauvreté idéologique d'une manière éclatante et même écoeurante. Je crois aussi que l'on devra donner deux ou trois articles sur l'Humanitéen les comparant avec les souscriptions précédentes par villes, régions, etc. C'est un travail minutieux, encombrant, mais il peut donner des résultats d'une importance tout à fait singulière sur les changements de l'influence du parti, sur la composition des sympathisants, etc. Sans des études pareilles (aussi par et sur les syndicats) notre critique restera abstraite et parfois même vide.Je parlais dans une de mes lettres à Naville de la nécessité de diviser sérieusement le travail entre laVéritéet laLutteen en formant un organisme unique. Le camarade Naville me répond que pour cela il faut une organisation unique, ce qui est entièrement juste. Malheureusement je ne vois pas par le journal lui-même ni par les lettres comment on s'y prend pour aboutir à cette organisation unique composée avant tout d'ouvriers actifs.Maintenant quelques mots au «maître». Je vous ai envoyé une lettre ennuyeuse sur mes relations avec Rieder. J'ai omis d'y mentionner que Paz lui a accordé le droit de traduction pour les pays européens, à l'exception de l'Allemagne et de l'Angleterre. Rieder retient, dans ce cas, 40% des sommes payées à l'auteur. C'est une piraterie. Il est juste vrai que les éditeurs français pratiquent cette piraterie normalement envers les jeunes écrivains en abusant de leurs besoins d'être introduits par les voies de la «franc-maçonnerie» internationale des éditeurs. Mais sans parler de ce que j'ai aucun besoin de la protection de Rieder devant ses semblables en Hollande et en Tchécoslovaquie, j'ai reçu un tas de propositions incomparablement plus favorables. J'ai transmis il y a quelques jours à Rieder une proposition analogue d'une société anglo-allemande, qui n'émet pas la prétention de retenir plus de 15% (au lieu des 40% de Rieder). Dans ce cas-ci je suis lié par le traité et Rieder a le droit formel de transporter ce paragraphe dans le nouveau traité. Mais vous pourrez tout de même essayer de faire une certaine pression sur cette matière problématique qui lui sert de conscience.Quant à mon livre sur l'Internationale j'apprends inopinément que toute l'affaire est entre les mains de Madeleine Paz. Je vous envoie ci-joint sa lettre et ma réponse pour vous mettre au courant. Je ne vous encombrerais pas de cette question qu'il ne s'agissait que d'une question personnelle. D'ailleurs je vous fais une proposition «commerciale»: les honoraires dus à un avocats dans un cas pareil, nous les déposerons à moitié dans la caisse de laVéritéet dans celle de laLutte." - Der türkische Staat unter Atatürk gewährte Trotzki 1929 politisches Asyl. Er verbrachte die Jahre zwischen 1929 und 1933 auf der Insel Büyükada in der [Attributes: Soft Cover]
