        PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM OF VERNACULAR IMAGES OF RANGOON AND THE COASTAL SEA TRADE, AKYAB, MAWLAMYINE, MYEIK, AND THE SAYA SAN REBELLION, 1930-1933

      1930. Original photograph album. String-tied Boards. Very Good. This interesting album, centered on Burma and the Burmese coasts, contains 238 sepiatone photographs (3.25"x2.5" to 4.5"x2.75"), mounted neatly with photo-corners onto black paper leaves. Housed in string-tied, cloth over boards; edges of boards scuffed, internally clean and tight. 9.75" x 12.5" The photographs in this unusual album were taken by a young marine with the British India Steam Navigation Company, traveling the Irrawaddy River and working the trade routes across the Gulf of Martaban between Yangon, Akyab, Mawlamyine and Myeik in Burma, and also across the Bay of Bengal to Calcutta, Cuddalore and Chennai in India. The images here comprise a first-hand visual chronicle of British trading along Burmese coasts, and also mark the riotous era of the Saya San Rebellion (1930-1932), triggered by anti-colonial and anti-Indian sentiments. Another uncommon feature of the album are scenes of Bangladesh, then part of British India, including the Chittagong Armory, photographed in April, 1930, just after an earlier rebellion--the failed takeover attempt by Indian independence revolutionaries. ~~ Images in the album include: large teak rafts on the Irrawaddy River, conveying coal and live goats; Yangon city seen from the River; elephants working at a timber camp in Moulmein, along with an old pagoda, a young monk, and the quaint town itself; Akyab in Rakhine State; Mergui (Myeik) on the Andaman Sea, with views of the charming viallage and harbor; scenes and people of Calcutta; jute mills on the Hooghly River; Madras (Chennai) where the ship is unloaded by men and women using only baskets; women hard at work in a lumber yard; children fascinated by the foreigner dressed in white; shore leave at the historic Mount Lavinia Hotel in Colombo; views of Penang, Malaysia, and the Port of Victoria in the Seychelles archipelago; photographs of the mariner's daily life aboard ship; native cargo boats coming alongside; Chinese junks; dugout canoes; &c.

        PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM OF ORIGINAL IMAGES OF SHANGHAI AND HONG KONG, TAKEN BY A BRITISH ARMY SOLDIER OF THE 1ST BATTALION, LINCOLNSHIRE REGIMENT, 1930-1932:; Sailing aboard the China Fleet flagship HMS Suffolk

      1930. Original photograph album. String-tied Boards. Very Good. This album contains 162 b&w vernacular photographs (2.75"x2" to 4"x6"), fixed with red photo mounts to both sides of heavy black leaves. Housed in a string-tied album, 10.25"x7.25"; old newspaper remnants on boards, internally clean and well-preserved. In addition to Shanghai and Hong Kong, some views may also have been taken in Wei Hai Wei (then a leased territory under British rule) and in Gibraltar, just before it was commissioned to China. Our unidentified soldier saw action in the "Shanghai January 28 Incident" during the Shanghai War of 1932. Photos there are taken from behind a sandbag barrier on a city street, with guns at the ready as the Sino-Japanese dispute unfolds. Also present are photographs of the Hankow barracks at Sham Shui Po, the camp in Kowloon which would later be used as a prison camp by the Japanese invaders in World War II. Other war-related images include firing practice, drills, trenching, and tent camps (in Gibraltar?). Also seen are the graves of fallen soldiers and Royal marines at the Hong Kong cemetery, and eight sun-toned photographs of the Suez Canal, the Port Said monument to Ferdinand de Lesseps, &c. ~~ Indigenous life and industry are seen in photographs of Chinese men using small hammers to chisel large stones into pebbles for building roads, in photos of unusual methods of conveyance, in a view of children playing at a riverside lumber yard, in a photograph of a woman with pole baskets--one holding harvested produce, the other holding her infant child, in views of the Great Wall, junks in the harbor, a soldier in a rickshaw, &c., &c. ~~ A memorialized photograph celebrates the HMS Suffolk leaving Shanghai for Hong Kong on 1 October 1932, after this lengthy patrol to Shanghai and the Yangtze delta.

        The Savoy Cocktail Book

      London: Constable, 1930. Signed Limited edition, published simultaneously to the first trade edition. Signed by Harry Craddock, this being number 230. Octavo, original half cloth, pictorial endpapers. Illustrations by Gilbert Rumbold. In near fine condition. Uncommon. Savoy Cocktail Book features 750 of Harry Craddock's most popular recipes. It is a fascinating record of the cocktails that set London alight at the time—and which are just as popular today. From Slings to Smashes, Fizzes to Flips, and featuring art deco illustrations, Harry Craddock was "the king of cocktail shakers," and The Savoy Cocktail Books contains humorous anecdotes on the origin of the cocktail and its purpose ("for the solace of man"), as well as "an elucidation of the Manners and Customs of people of quality in a period of some equality." "Behind every great bartender (literally) is a roughed-up, stained copy of The Savoy Cocktail Book...it's been an industry must-have since its first edition" (GQ).

With over 100 illustrations from numerous sources on finely produced black and white plates, and with 2 folding genealogical charts. Tall, thick 8vos, very finely bound by Bayntun-Riviere of Bath in signed contemporary three-quarter dark green morocco over green cloth, all covers with a gilt fillet lines at the borders of the morocco, the spines with six gilt framed compartments separated by raised bands gilt stopped, four compartments with gilt central fleur-de-lis and two gilt lettered, additional gilt rules at the head and tails and additional gilt lettering at the tail, endpapers marbled, t.e.g. xxix, 538; xii, 576 pp. A very fine, clean, bright and handsome set, very well preserved and unusually appealing. AN IMPORTANT TEXT IN EXCELLENT SIGNED BINDINGS BY BAYNTUN-RIVIERE OF BATH, one of the most important bookbinding companies of the 19th and 20th centuries, famous for their materials and tooling used in binding. The elegance of the bindings is especially fitting to the subject. This is considered the foremost biography of the Medicis, and is the first history of the whole family, rather than one dealing with only the very famous or infamous members. Leaders of the city-states of Italy, they were merchants, warriors and patrons of some of the most famous and influential artists of all time. The powerful Medici family shaped not only the history of Italy, but the history of the world. They lie at the very center of all cause to the flowering of the Renaissance.

Mai 1934 (RGBl. 1934 I, S. 392-393) wesentlich geändert, mehrfach ergänzt und letztmals 1942 (RGBl. I, S.682) unbefristet fortgeschrieben. Eine schwerwiegende Veränderung bestand darin, daß 1934 die genannte Vermögensgrenze von vorher 200.000 Reichsmark auf nunmehr 50.000 Reichsmark herabgesetzt wurde. Zudem wurden die Bemessungsgrundlagen zuungunsten der Auswanderungswilligen verändert, wodurch ein weit größerer Personenkreis als vorher von der Zwangsabgabe betroffen war. Die Reichsfluchtsteuer, die ursprünglich auf diejenigen zielte, die freiwillig und um die eigene Steuerlast zu mindern ins Ausland übersiedelten, traf nun hauptsächlich die auswanderungswilligen Juden. Vor 1933 war das Steueraufkommen aus der Reichsfluchtsteuer gering und betrug im zweiten Rechnungsjahr nur knapp 1 Million Reichsmark, später jedoch schwollen die Erträge daraus zu einem bedeutenden Teil im Reichshaushalt an: 1933 stieg das Aufkommen auf 17 Millionen Reichsmark und erreichte 1938 einen Höhepunkt mit 342 Millionen Reichsmark. Insgesamt zogen die deutschen Finanzbehörden auf diese Weise dadurch 941 Millionen Reichsmark ein, wohl zu über 90% von rassisch Verfolgten" (nach Wikipedia). - Im Stichworteverzeichnis sind bei den jeweiligen Bänden unter "Steuersteckbriefe" alphabetisch die Steuerschuldner / "Steuerflüchtlinge" aufgrund der Reichsfluchtsteuer aufgelistet (fast hundert Namen, von Elise Baruch bis Dr. Paul Israel Zucker). - Erste Auflage, EA, Erstausgabe in sehr guter Erhaltung, hier die besonders aufwendig ausgestattete Behörden-Ausgabe Sprache: de [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

In spite of lacking the colorful pictorial covers of the original paper edition this is an attractive copy of a very scarce title. Gram is the pseudonym of David G. Ramirez, a Mexican priest who lived in San Antonio during the Cristero War for a decade starting around 1925. One of the rarest titles in Mexican American literature because of the imprint. We would not be surprised if the imprint were faked, and the book was actually published in northern Mexico, unlike subsequent editions [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Every Mother&#39;s Son [original title: Redheap]

      New York: Cosmopolitan Book Corporation. Fine in Near Fine dj. 1930. 4th printing. Hardcover. NOISBN . [lovely clean copy with no significant wear, remnant of vintage price sticker on rear pastedown; jacket bright and clean, with just a touch of smudging to the spine, a few tiny nicks at top and bottom edges of rear panel]. Lindsay&#39;s second novel (although seventeen years had gone by since his first, hence the lauding of him as a "new writer" in the jacket blurbs), a family saga set in a country town in Victoria, Australia, in the 1890s (supposedly based on his own hometown). Its protagonist is a 19-year-old lad whose dalliances with various local girls (including the parson&#39;s daughter) lead his family to place him under the tutelage of a school teacher who&#39;s also a recovering alcoholic -- and who also falls prey to the boy&#39;s corrupting influence. (And the rest of the family aren&#39;t exactly angels, either, as it turns out.) Although he was already widely known as an artist and illustrator, this fictional foray kicked off a new phase of Lindsay&#39;s career, that of literary bad boy; published in London by Faber & Faber, the book was banned in the author&#39;s native Australia until 1959. (It would not be the only one of Lindsay&#39;s novels to meet a similar fate.) The original U.K. edition is pretty scarce, the American edition ever-so-much-more-so -- and jacketed copies, in this kind of condition? Fuhgeddaboudit. .

London: William Heinemann, (1956). First Edition. A Very Good or better copy in original publisher's cloth, which has been married to a price-clipped FINE ORIGINAL DJ. INSCRIBED BY AGATHA CHRISTIE on the front-free endpaper using her pseudonym: "To Charlotte, with love from Mary Westmacott." [With:] [Christie, Agatha] Westmacott, Mary. ABSENT IN THE SPRING. London: Collins, 1944. First Edition. A Very Good copy married to a Very Good example of the scarce original publisher's dust jacket (price-clipped), ASSOCIATION COPY. From the collection (book-label to each front paste-down) of Charlotte "Carlo" Fisher (1895-1976). Charlotte Fisher, initially hired to serve as nanny to Christie's daughter Rosalind, was pressed into service as a part-time shorthand secretary during the earliest days of the author's career. To quote from Christie's autobiography, Charlotte Fisher was "friend and secretary and governess and dogsbody and everything else for many years. [She] is still one of my best friends." The six "Mary Westmacott" novels (of which we offer five) were those which Agatha Christie wrote to explore feelings that had no place in her mystery tales. Quoting Christie's daughter Rosalind at the time of her mother's centenary in 1947: "The Mary Westmacott novels have been described as romantic novels but I don't think that is really a fair assessment. They are not 'love stories' in the general sense of the term, and they certainly have no happy endings. They are, I believe, about love in some of its most powerful and destructive forms." Agatha Christie wasn't in the habit of inscribing her non-mystery novels; until Carlo Fisher's copies were discovered, contemporary presentation copies were unknown and we can find no auction records for any other contemporaneously signed or inscribed Mary Westmacott books. Here we have five "Carlo Fisher" copies, all with her book-label and four of which are either signed or inscribed. A unique opportunity for the Christie collector to say the least. More information or photos on request.. Signed by Author. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.
