Julius Streicher der Gauführer von Franken, stand immer in der vordersten Linie der nationalsozialistischen Front. Furchtlos und treu dem deutschen Blut und dem nationalsozialistischen Gedanken trat er für Deutschland in die Schranken. Er hatte Juda als den Todfeind, als den Verderber Deutschlands erkannt, er kannte die Riesenmacht aber auch die Schwächen Judas. Er war einer der ersten, der, von der überragenden Bedeutung Adolf Hitlers überzeugt, sich ihm anschloss und seiner Führung unterstellte. Julius Streicher schreckten nicht Drohungen Gefängnis, zielbewusst kämpfte er gegen den Verderber Deutschlands, und mancher wuchtige Hieb seines Sturmes brachte einen prominenten Juden zur Strecke. Diesem tapferen Vorkämpfer widmen wir unser Buch "Juden sehen Dich an", in Anerkenntnis seiner großen Verdienste. Wir wissen, daß der alte böse Feind noch nicht ganz geschlagen ist, und daß deshalb weiterhin gekämpft werden muss bis zum Endsieg, und wir hoffen, mit unserem Buch ein weiteres Rüstzeug gegen diesen Feind geschaffen zu haben. Verfasser und Verlag" - Die ganzseitigen Portrait-Fotosbbildungen bekannter Juden mit Bildunterschriften wie z.B.: "Bernhard Weiß genannt "Isidor", auch das "Nasobem". War langjähriger Polizei-Vizepräsident von Berlin und ein geradezu teuflischer Verfolger der deutschen Jugend und des Nationalsozialismus. Er schützte das Verbrechertum, verkehrte in Spielclubs, gehörte dem bekannten Centralverein deutscher Staatsbürger jüdischen Glaubens an, sein Bruder nahm Provision für die Beschaffung von Schankstättenkonzessionen. Im Sommer 19.2.1930 aus dem Amt entfernt . . . / Münzenberg, Führer der Mordkommune / Professor Magnus Hirschfeld. Verteidigt die Homosexualität in besonders schmutziger Weise, propagiert alle Art von Sittenlosigkeit. Forderte noch 1928: "Ein natürlicher Geschlechtsverkehr der Schuljugend sei, wenn kein Zwang auf den anderen ausgeübt werde, keine Sünde und nichts Unehrenhaftes / Schulrat Löwenstein. Machte aus der "Karl-Marx-Schule" eine kommunistische Pflanzschule des Untermenschentums, lehrte die Kinder Volk, Rasse und Deutschtum zu verachten, richtete Berliner Arbeiterkinder zu Volksverrat und Jugendknechtschaft ab. Ihm zur Seite stand der Jude Carlsen (Krakauer) / Die Gebrüder Rotter. Eigentlich ließen sie Schaie, schufen sich einen Theaterkonzern auf Pump in Berlin, der mit schwerer Schädigung der Lieferanten zusammenbrach.

        Untitled [Woman with a blue cockatiel]

      Circa 1930. Watercolour and ink on paper, signed at lower right 'Phil McLachlan', 200 x 180 mm (exposed image), glued at edges to old mount, scattered foxing to the image and board mount. A wonderful image of opulence, with a dash of decadence. Phyllis (Phil) McLachlan was a talented Sydney artist of the 1920s and 30s who studied with Thea Proctor at the Julian Ashton School. She is best known for her cover designs for The Home and Triad magazines, to which the present work is possibly related. She exhibited at the Society of Women Painters in 1924, and in 1930 married noted naval officer and diplomat John Collins. McLachlan's work is rare in the market or in public collections, however, an archive of her naval costume drawings is held by the Mitchell Library.

        Estudo de um plano de avenidas para a cidade de São Paulo.

      Companhia Melhoramento de Sao Paulo 1930 - Prestes Maia, Francisco. Estudo de um plano de avenidas para a cidade de São Paulo. São Paulo, Companhia Melhoramento de São Paulo, 1930. Author's signed presentation copy of his award-winning first study for the re-planning of São Paulo on modern lines. The ambitious project involved relief for the congested central areas by opening a broad circular avenue completed with squares and viaducts, the introduction of wide arterial avenues for fast-moving traffic with overhead crossings, systematic widening and lengthening of existing avenues, squares, and gardens, the canalisation of the Tiete River, new bridges, viaducts and tunnels, and the building of a municipal stadium and public library. It was realized under the author's supervision over a decade starting in 1938. Prestes Maia (1896-1965), renowned Brazilian urbanist, was architectural engineer to the municipality at the time of publication. He won a prize for it in July 1938 at the 4th Pan American Congress of Architecture at Rio de Janeiro. Attached to the front flyleaf is a typed postcard by the author presenting his work to his equally celebrated Argentine counterpart, the urbanist Carlos Maria Della Paolera (1890-1960), dated 5th October 1938, with the comment that it had been requested through Lincoln Continentino, urbanist at Belo Horizonte. Prestes Maia wrote 4 influential works for the improvement of Brazilian cities. He was elected mayor of São Paulo in 1938, and re-elected in 1942 and in 1961. The editors are Dr.J.Pires do Rio who commissioned the study, and the engineer Arthur Saboya, director of public works, who wrote the preface. The publication was lavishly produced on art paper. A stain in blank margin of first 3 leaves, otherwise a good copy from the library of Carlos Maria Della Paolera with his signature in top blank margin of half title.

        Photograph album documenting a Marine's life while stationed in pre-World War II Guam

      , San Diego and Guam. San Diego and Guam. Album. Very good. This 5.5" x 8" album contains over 40 pages filled with approximately 160 photographs ranging in size from 2" x 3" to 3.5" to 5.75". All of the photographs are attached with mounting corners. Most are captioned on the page in white ink which is faint but legible. The front of the album features a somewhat faded gilt Eagle, Globe, and Anchor (EGA) logo with "U. S. Marines" below. The photographs, pages, and album are all in nice shape. Most of the images are of Guam, although several show Marines at and views of Califonia and Hawaii including a nice image of derricks at the Los Angeles oil field and a couple of the transport ship, U.S.S. Henderson. The Guam images include: 1) Piti, Apra Harbor, and other scenes of Guam including beaches, thatch buildings, water buffalo, an outrigger canoe, and a rare snowstorm, 2) Guamanian women, 3) Commercial and military vessels including the Asiatic Fleet, 4) Marines (parades, individuals, etc.) and Marine facilities (barracks, tent camps, etc.), 5) An identified Marine driving an official staff car with an EGA logo on the door, 6) Marine aircraft in flight (They appear to be Curtis HS-2L Flying Boats and a Curtis SOC-1 Observation Seaplane.), 7) A Marine artillery battery firing a celebratory salute for Memorial Day, 1930, and using the same guns during beachfront training (They appear to be French-made Model 1897 75 mm Model 1897 field guns.) 8) A bivouac and convoy with trucks and a 10-Ton Artillery Tractor, 10) and more. A scarce and very nice visual record of U. S. Marine Corps life in the Pacific in the years between the World Wars.

        The Collected Sonnets

      Joh. Enschede for Halcyon Press / A.A.M. Stols, Maastricht, Brussels and London 1930 - One of 16 extra-illustrated copies (16 full-page illustrations, the regular edition has 11) on pearl-white imperial Japanese vellum w. 3 extra suites of the portrait and the plates: one on pearl-white imperial Japanese vellum, one on Japanese vellum, and one on Dutch Pannekoek paper with the watermark "The Halcyon Press A.A.M. Stols Maastricht". Wright has signed every extra image in full (48 total). Beautifully bound (original binding) by Louis Malcorps (signed) in cherry Niger morocco. Wright's image of a female nude blocked in gold on the upper cover. Contents fine, binding near fine (tiny 1/16 inch nick in top gutter), spine just a touch lighter than the boards. A very beautiful binding. This copy comes with a small portfolio containing the original prospectus and 3 rejected proofs of the plates, signed and/or annotated in pencil by Buckland Wright. Note that the colophon calls for five rejects. These rejects are inferior strikes on inferior paper of the final-state plates, not variant images, so not very interesting either way. The entire production is housed in a custom morocco-edged slipcase with only minor shelfwear. The pearl-white Japanese vellum plates are incredibly vivid, the best strikes of any John Buckland Wright images that I have seen. Reid A1(b). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Scrapbook]: Pittsburgh Area Families 1908-1930

      Pennsylvania 1930 - Quarto. Measuring 10" x 12". Green pebbled cloth with leather corners and spine with "Scrapbook" stamped in gilt on the spine. A collection of 243 sepia toned or black and white photographs measuring 2.5" x 3.5" to 3.5" x 5.5" affixed to white pages with captions, as well as related ephemera. Very good minus album with removed photos, cracked spine, and worn edges with near fine photographs. A photo scrapbook beginning around 1908 from the Pittsburgh area of Pennsylvania centering on the families of H. Leibold and Wilbur K. Steele. Included are group photos and scenes of upper middle class life in Pennsylvania. They include posing around new cars, attending an automobile party in 1917, photos with their horse "Dave," and on vacations to Gettsyburg, Texas, Niagara Falls, and Georgian Bay in Ontario. Another vacation page shows a group of passengers, including the Steele family, on a steamship to Cuba in 1916. The two families were part of the Pittsburgh Field Club which boasted a golf course designed in 1914 by Alexander H. Findlay and which hosted the PGA Championship in 1937. Photos of the group can be seen here lounging on the green and posing with golf clubs captioned, "W.K. Steele and party," as well as solo pictures of Leibold golfing. Steele is also pictured at rail stations with overturned train cars. A fishing trip in Georgian Bay shows Mr. and Mrs. Steele with friends in rowboats, the ladies watching from the pier, and the men posing with their catch. Also included from the trip is a tin type depicting a fairly large group of men posing. Interspersed throughout the album are newspaper clippings from the area, a Red Cross membership card, and a few letters. Five pages at the end of the album are dedicated to clippings of Charles Lindbergh. An extensive album depicting the life of well-to-do Pennsylvanians over the course of two decades.

        Whoroscope.

      The Hours Press, Paris., 1930. First edition. Octavo. pp 4, [2] Notes. Stapled wrappers. Out of a total edition of 300, this is one of 200 unsigned. The author's first separately published work - he had earlier contributed to Our Exagmination Round His Factification for Incamination of ''Work in Progress''. Ninety-eight line poem, followed by two pages of notes.The question mark after ''Who's'' on page 2, line 8, has been erased by a previous owner. This question mark denotes the first state of the book. It was subsequently dropped, though the sheets were bound up indiscriminately and first or second states can have any number from 1 to 300.Staples rusting. Cover edges slightly creased and rubbed. Very good. The rear half of the wraparound band is missing, but this doesn't affect the announcement printed on the front that this work ''was awarded the £10 prize for the best poem on Time in a competition judged by Richard Aldington and Nancy Cunard''.

        Photo album]: Young Woman's College Album from 1924 to 1930 in Ypsilanti, Michigan Featuring a Photograph of Mary Pickford

      Ypsilanti, Michigan / Virginia / California 1930 - Oblong octavo measuring 8" x 6". 59pp. String-tied black leather over stiff paper boards. Contains 218 gelatin silver black and white or sepia toned photographs measuring between 2.5" x 1.5" and 4.5" x 2.75" with captions, with additional ephemera from 1924 to 1930. Tears and chips with some pages detached but present thus very good with near fine photographs with tiny tears and creases. The photo album contains a plethora of photographs featuring Esther Davis and her adventures. Most pictures are of the three Davis daughters; Alice, Rachel, and Esther either posed or candid shots with their friends taken at Michigan State Normal College in Ypsilanti, Michigan. Esther Davis is seen dancing and smiling with all her glee club members, standing outside wearing fancy clothing or costumes, and graduating high school and college. Esther Davis lived in the Bessie Leach Priddy House, a sorority, at Michigan State Normal College. While most of the pictures are from Michigan, some are labeled from places in Virginia and California. Two of which feature photos of Mary Pickford on the set of *Little Annie Rooney* which was being filmed in West Hollywood, California. Pickford was 33 at the time of filming but played a spry and determined young Irish girl. The movie became one of the highest grossing films of 1925. Pickford is seen smiling with the cast in one photo and then posing in the other. Both photos are fine with "Mary Pickford in 'Annie Roonie," written on the bottom edge. An interesting collection of photographs from a young woman during 1924 to 1930 documenting her adventures with friends and family, completing her education, and her encounter with Mary Pickford.
