        Autograph Letter Signed, 2pp on one sheet of "Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute" stationery, 4to, Tuskegee, Jan. 28, 1931

      - Carver discusses his investigations into peanut diseases and specific experiments in growing healthy plants. He writes to Grady Porter, a researcher from a peanut processing plant in Columbus, Georgia. Carver thinks they will be able to produce, "the perfect form from the last bag of vines you brought. I have put them out in the open air where they can mature in a natural way. The perithecia are well developed." He notes that he found, "some imperfect ascispores, " but writes that, "within a few weeks I will find perfectly developed spores. I am trying to develop the hearts." He then suggests that a "bacterial disease" may be affecting growth. "These may be related to a disease on cotton stalks which I am going to investigate.I found three small pieces of cow pea vines in with the peanut vines you brought.the peanut and cow pea vine have the same trouble." Carver asks Porter to look for cow pea vines "with little pustules" like the ones on peanut vines. He ends the letter using the scientific names for the plants to explain what Grady should look for. He signs, "G. W. Carver." With holograph envelope of Tuskegee Institute. Carver had achieved widespread recognition by the time he wrote this letter. He was credited for developing peanut products and bringing back the peanut industry which had been devastated by disease from insect infestation at the end of the nineteenth century. Carver also promoted interracial cooperation.

        THE GLASS KEY.

      London and New York: Alfred A. Knopf,. 1931. cloth.. Remnant of removed label on front paste-down, some dustiness and. spotting to edges, some mild edge rubbing, spine panel a bit faded, a. very good copy. (#132178). First edition. Correct first edition, first issue, of this novel, published January, 1931; the American edition was not published until April of 1931. The author's fourth novel, set in a city patterned after Baltimore, where he grew up. "Hammet's vision was one of the darkest in the history of crime fiction. He saw the world as an incomprehensible place in which no one can ever really know one another, and created the world of THE GLASS KEY to match. Whatever the ultimate verdict on its literary status, it's a compulsively readable, coolly sardonic portrait of an unredeemable nightworld and ambiguous relationships, and stands beside THE MALTESE FALCON as one of the earliest classics of noir crime fiction." - Pronzini and Muller, 1001 Midnights, p. 336. A Haycraft-Queen cornerstone. Filmed several times. Pronzini and Muller, 1001 Midnights, pp. 335-6. Layman A.4.1.a.

        Histoire de la Bienheureuse Raton. Fille de Joie. Illustrations de Charles Laborde

      Paris: Editions Mornay, 1931. Hand painted vellum binding by Laborde on one of 300 on velin from a total issue of 355. In addition, this copy has an original watercolor by Laborde on the colophon page, although this is not called for in the colophon. The watercolor is of the "jolie fille" and is inscribed and signed by Laborde to the former owner. Bound: hand-painted vellum binding, unsigned but undoubtedly painted by Laborde himself, with rondel vignette of street scene on front panel and a different vignette on back panel, spine smooth with author and title and year lettered in gold, green, and black with floral decorations enclosed in painted gilt scroll; green and gold silk damask guards, all edges gilt, original wrapper bound in, matching slipcase, binding by Valmar, near fine. Laborde, one of the book illustrators working in Paris in the post-World War I period, was a social satirist and his works, usually in the form of colored etchings, are splendid examples of the Art Deco period. This title, although set in another period altogether, is still very "Art Deco" in feeling. Printed by Aulard, the etchings were pulled by Kaelin and the coloring was done by Berthelot.

Overall, a close-to-fine copy of a landmark press book that is seldom encountered without flaws. T.e.g. (Chanticleer 63; Gill 281; Franklin, The Private Presses, p. 144).

      diverse Verlage, 1931. Originaleinbände und -broschuren, überwiegend mit Original-Schutzumschlägen. Insgesamt gut bis sehr gut erhaltene Sammlung mit normalen Gebrauchsspuren. Die meisten Bände mit Exlibris des Vorbesitzers, einige mit Bleistiftanstreichungen, wenige mit Stempeln.Stefan Heym zählte unbenommen zu den politisch einflussreichsten Schriftstellern der Nachkriegszeit. 1913 unter dem Namen Helmut Flieg im sächsischen Chemnitz geboren, wurde er beriets 1931 als junger Antifaschist wegen der Veröffentlichung eines Gedichts in der dortigen \"Volksstimme\" der Schule verwiesen. Er beendete die Schulzeit in Berlin und emigrierte 1933 nach Prag, zu seinem eigenen Schutz - und dem seiner Familie - vor den Nationalsozialisten lebte er fortan unter dem Pseudonym Stefan Heym. 1935 wanderte er in die USA aus. Nach seinem Studium arbeitete er dort als Journalist und Schriftsteller und kam als Nachrichtenoffizier der US Army wieder nach Deutschland. Endgültig verließ er erst während der McCarthy-Ära die USA und lebte seit 1953 in der DDR. Seine künstlerische und politische Entwicklung gleicht der vieler DDR-Schriftsteller seiner Generation: Zunächst Verfechter der sozialistischen Idee, resignierte auch Heym bereits Mitte der 1950er Jahre an der DDR-Kulturpolitik: Sein Buch \"Der Tag X\" (später: Fünf Tage im Juni) durfte nicht erscheinen, ein Schicksal, das in den Folgejahren viele seiner Werke traf, die deshalb zunächst in westdeutschen Verlagen veröffentlicht wurden. Das kurzfristige \"Tauwetter\" Anfang der 1970er Jahre endete auch für ihn spätestens mit der Ausbürgerung von Wolf Biermann - Heym zählte zu den Erstunterzeichnern der Protesterklärung und wurde 1979 aus dem Schriftstellerverband der DDR ausgeschlossen. Auf der berühmten November-Demonstration von DDR-Künstlern 1989 war er einer der Hauptredner. 1994 errang er (für viele überraschend als Kandidat der SED-Nachfolgepartei PDS) ein Bundestagsmandat und wurde Alterspräsident des deutschen Parlaments. Stefan Heym starb 2001 während einer Israelreise.

Er studierte an der Kunstakademie Düsseldorf und unternahm ausgedehnte Studienfahren in viele Länder. Sein Malstil war traditionell akademisch. Seine besondere Liebe galt der See, die auch häufig Motiv für seine Bilder ist. Großes Interesse hatte er auch an technischen Dingen, was seinen Ausdruck in Bildern der Schwerindustrie und von Schiffswerften fand. 1942 ließ er sich nach seiner Ausbombung in Düsseldorf in Brilon nieder. Seine neue Heimatstadt hielt er in vielen historisierenden Bildern fest. Sein bekanntestes Werk wurde die historische Stadtansicht, die er aus Anlass des 750. Gründungsjubiläums der Stadt anfertigte. Walter Hemming entstammt einer Künstlerfamilie, die ihre Wurzeln in in Runkel hat. Sein Vater, Carl Hemming, wurde 1867 in Runkel geboren. Auch Walter Hemmings Frau Marianne war Künstlerin. Hemming war auch häufig auf der Grossen Deutschen Kunstausstellung München vertreten. [Attributes: First Edition]

Mahatma Gandhi contributed a piece ("Religion and Art") to number IV. "[Underwood] joined the staff of the Royal College - numbering Barbara Hepworth among his pupils - and in 1921 opened his own Brook Green School of Drawing. Students included Henry Moore, Eileen Agar, Blair Hughes-Stanton, and Gertrude Hermes. The pupils, together with other young artists and intellectuals in the Hammersmith and Chiswick neighbourhood, formed a lively and creative coterie. They enjoyed fancy-dress parties at Girdler's Road, but also forged artistic alliances. From this Brook Green circle emerged in 1925 the English Wood-Engraving Society, and in 1931 a short-lived review, The Island, which carried artwork by Moore, Agar, and Laurence Bradshaw as well as Underwood's own woodcuts and writings" (ODNB). Scarce: Copac locates just two sets in British and Irish institutional libraries (V&A, Manchester), OCLC records only an incomplete set (number IV only) at the National Library of New Zealand.

      London: MacMillan & Company, 1931. First edition of Keynes' first volume of collected essays. Octavo, original green cloth. Near fine in the original dust jacket which is chipped at the head and a few other closed tears. Uncommon in the original dust jacket. The essays in this volume show Keynes's attempts to influence the course of events by public persuasion over the period of 1919-40. In the light of subsequent history, 'Essays in Persuasion' is a remarkably prophetic volume covering a wide range of issues in political economy. In articles on the Versailles Treaty, Keynes foresaw all too clearly that excessive Allied demands for reparations and indemnities would lead to the economic collapse of Germany. In Keynes's essays on inflation and deflation, the reader can find ideas that were to become the foundations of his most renowned treatise, 'The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money. With startling accuracy Keynes forecast the economic fluctuations that were to beset the economies of Europe and the United States and even proposed measures which, if heeded at the time, might have warded off an era of world-wide depression.

        Contributions to a British Association Discussion on the Evolution of the Universe" in Nature 128, 1931, 704-722

      - FIRST EDITION OF AN IMPORTANT 1931 VOLUME THAT INCLUDES A SPECIAL SUPPLEMENT ON THE ORIGIN OF THE UNIVERSE, OR COSMOLOGY, based upon a specially held meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science. Cosmology, at the time, was considered "risky science because it teeters just on the balance between physics and metaphysics, between science and philosophy" (Hassing, Final Causality in Nature, 188). The beginnings of scientific, modern cosmology have been dated to this meeting. The supplement is the only published account of the unique discussion set up to by the British Association for the Advancement of Science for their centenary meeting. The discussion includes contributions by the scientists James Jeans, Abbé G. Lemaître, Willem de Sitter, Arthur Eddington, Robert A. Millikan, Edward Milne, J. C. Smuts, Ernest Barnes (a theologian), and Oliver Lodge. "By my own reckoning, modern scientific cosmology began on the 29th of September, 1931, on the occasion of the British Association for the Advancement of Science's special session devoted to "The Evolution of the Universe". I pick this date simply because the session marked the achievement, on the part of all the principal cosmological practitioners, of a consensus view about the nature, structure, and origin of the universe. After this meeting, for roughly the next two decades, most mainstream cosmologists, if asked, would tell pretty much the same story about what the universe was like, where it had come from, and, most importantly, what evidence they had in favor of this view" (ibid). "[Sir Arthur] Eddington is probably the one most responsible for the development and promulgation of the core tenets of the consensus [views the meeting agreed upon]. Eddington's view just prior to the BA meeting held that 'our actual universe may probably be considered as expanding from an initial state something like 'Einstein's world' towards a limiting state like 'de Sitter's world'" (Hetherington, Encyclopedia of Cosmology, 485). After the meeting, the consensus view held and was affirmed by almost all those present by Georges Lemaître, Arthur Eddington, Robert Millikan, Oliver Lodge and Willem de Sitter. The tenets of modern cosmology had been determined. CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Macmillan. 4to. (11 x 8.25 inches; 275 x 206mm). Entire volume, not ex-libris. Handsomely and professionally rebound in half leather. 5 raised bands at the spine, gilt-ruled. One red morocco label; one black morocco label; both gilt-lettered. Tightly and very solidly bound. Clean and bright throughout save for three small spots at the head of the first page of the supplement section. Withal, near fine condition.

An uncommon book rarely found in dust jacket.. (#149351). First edition. Collects thirteen stories; "... a more varied collection whose best weird story is the haunted house story 'The Frontier Guards.'" - Barron (ed), Horror Literature 3-200. "It has been far too easy to put Wakefield in the (rather roomy) pigeonhole of 'traditional English ghost stories', jumbling him together with such truly minor figures as Dare and Munby, etc. It's true that he lacked the self-branding instincts of Blackwood, M. R. James. Dunsany and Hodgson (to name the four contemporary British giants with which Lovecraft closes out his 'Essay on Supernatural Horror in Literature'). But variety is not necessarily a defect. Wakefield also had a certain robustness in his voice that is unexpected in weird fiction. It seems fair to say that the no-man's-land (or everyman's-land) in between the obvious giants and the obvious pygmies is where Wakefield belongs." - Robert Eldridge.

Die Auflage mit der Kollation 143 (1) Seiten ist nicht die erste, sondern die letzte Auflage dieses Titels, nach derzeitigem Kenntnisstand der 7. Druck, erschienen im März 1931. , siehe auch "Karl-May-Bibliografie 1913-1945" von Hermesmeier/Schmatz UA1.7 (S. 422/23). Die Tatsache, dass eine Auflagenzählung fehlt, ist hier kein Beleg für eine Erstauflage. Eine Auflagenzählung fehlte auch bereits bei der 6. Auflage. In diesem Verlag ging's kunterbunt durcheinander. Es gibt eine vierte Auflage, die wahlweise als dritte oder vierte Auflage bezeichnet ist. Es gibt eine fünfte Auflage, die wahlweise als vierte bezeichnet ist oder eben auch ohne Kennzeichnung blieb. Man hat es dann aufgegeben, so zu tun, als könne man zählen und verzichtete zum Schluss gänzlich auf entsprechende Angaben.Es ging bei diesem Buchprojekt offenbar nur darum, fortlaufend zu sparen. Dass er ( V ) auf dem stereotyp nachgedruckten Titelblatt stehen bliebt, ist reine Schlamperei oder erwähnte "Sparsamkeit" .

        India Speeches and an Introduction

      London: Thornton Butterworth, Ltd,, 1931. Octavo. Original orange wrappers, spine and covers printed in black. Housed in a custom red quarter morocco solander box. Small bumps to head and foot of rear wrapper, a touch of wear to spine ends, faint foxing to edges. An excellent copy. First edition, first impression, wrappered issue (the book was issued simultaneously in hardback). The 1930s are characterized as Churchill's wilderness years, with his unrelenting opposition to Hitler being seen as main cause for his ostracism. However "another, and earlier reason lay in his bitter opposition to Baldwin's India policy … Churchill had always hit hard; not for him a round of gentlemanly sparring between friends. His fight to maintain full control of India employed not just the clenched fist but the bludgeon" (Woods, Artillery of Words).
