        The Song of Life.

      New York: Horace Liveright, Inc.,, 1931. Octavo. Original boards, black cloth spine with orange title label, patterned crepe paper sides. With the illustrated dust jacket. Slight rubbing and fading along board edges, partial toning to front endpapers only, an excellent copy of the book, with the scarce dust jacket surviving but in poor condition with rear joint split and chips to spine and corners, nonetheless the attractive front panel presenting nicely, and unpriceclipped. First edition, first printing, with the very scarce dust jacket, a rare presentation copy inscribed by the author in the year of publication, "with love Krishna, Nov: 14th 31", on the front free endpaper. The Song of Life is an early collection of mystical poems by Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895-1986), a Brahmin who as a child had been selected and groomed by Theosophists and as the long-expected "World Teacher", but soon rejected the mantle and spent his life travelling the world, teaching, and writing. Not unlike Rabindranath Tagore, Krishnamurti became popular in the Western world as a conduit for ancient Eastern wisdom. He gained international fame with The First and Last Freedom, published in 1954 with a Foreword by Aldous Huxley, whom he had befriended in 1938 while living in California. Krishnamurti's earlier books are scarce, and inscribed copies are remarkably rare. This copy has the ticket of a Hollywood bookshop apparently dedicated to the guru, "Krishnamurti's Writings: 2123 Beachwood Dr. Hollywood, California".

        AN ESSAY ON TYPOGRAPHY. (Jacket cover title: PRINTING AND PIETY: AN ESSAY ON LIFE AND WORKS IN THE ENGLAND OF 1931, & PARTICULARLY TYPOGRAPHY)

      Pigotts: Printed by René Hague and Eric Gill for Mssrs. Sheed & Ward, London, 1931. FIRST EDITION. ONE OF 500 COPIES, SIGNED BY GILL AND HAGUE. This is clearly a book to be read by typophiles, but its strongly stated opinions range widely, as is suggested by the dust jacket title ("Printing & Piety: an Essay on Life and Works in the England of 1931, & Particularly Typography"). Among other things, the book says that although "industrialism has now won an almost complete victory, the handicrafts are not killed, & they cannot be quite killed because they meet an inherent, indestructible, permanent need in human nature. . . . The two worlds can see one another distinctly and without recrimination, both recognizing what is good in the other--the power of industrialism, the humanity of craftsmanship. . . . Handicraft standards are as absurd for mechanised industry as machine standards are absurd for the craftsman. The application of these principles to the making of letters and the making of books is the special business of this book." Glaister describes our author, Eric Gill (1882-1940), as "an English craftsman, engraver, type designer, sculptor, and philosopher whose influence on contemporary book production has been profound and world wide." Gill studied lettering as a young man under Edward Johnston, then for five years beginning in 1905 designed and engraved title pages and initials for the Cranach Press. Later, he did a great deal of woodcut illustration for private press publications, especially the Golden Cockerel Press (including memorable work for the famous "Four Gospels," "Troilus and Criseyde," and "Canterbury Tales"). René Hague was Gill's son-in-law and business partner.. 200 x 130 mm. (8 x 5 1/4"). 2 p.l., 120, [1] pp. FIRST EDITION. ONE OF 500 COPIES, SIGNED BY GILL AND HAGUE. Original rose-colored buckram, flat spine with gilt titling, edges untrimmed. In original printed (price-clipped) dust jacket. With author's "St. Thomas' hands" device on title page, woodcut printer's device in colophon, and several facsimiles of calligraphy in the text. Gill 21. Jacket slightly soiled, spine with a hint of darkening, and trivial creasing along the top, but an extremely good jacket with all imperfections very minor, and the volume itself in virtually mint condition. This is clearly a book to be read by typophiles, but its strongly stated opinions range widely, as is suggested by the dust jacket title ("Printing & Piety: an Essay on Life and Works in the England of 1931, & Particularly Typography"). Among other things, the book says that although "industrialism has now won an almost complete victory, the handicrafts are not killed, & they cannot be quite killed because they meet an inherent, indestructible, permanent need in human nature. . . .

        Born in Captivity. The Story of a Girl's Escape.

      Indianapolis: The Bobbs-Merrill Company,, 1931. Octavo. Original cream cloth, lettered in black on spine and front board. With the striking pictorial Deco dust jacket. Maps to the endpapers. Cloth a little rubbed at the edges, endpapers lightly browned, text-block with pale toning, the jacket brittle, heavily browned at the spine, marginally chipped and separating at the folds, but largely complete, altogether remains very good. First edition of this curious pseudonymous tale, recently identified as by Wentworth (1877-1961). Ostensibly a memoir of a young woman hitchhiking from New England to California and back in the 1920s. On publication it was considered to be autobiographical - "the story of a woman's experiences during a hitchhike journey across the United States and back, together with an account of the maladjustment and lack of understanding which drove her to this step" (The New York Times, 4 May, 1931) - and has been included in more recent scholarly discussion of women travellers "on the road", "Starke's" attitudes being contrasted for instance with those of "Boxcar" Bartha Thompson (Photinos, "Transiency and Transgression in the Autobiographies of Barbara Starke and 'Boxcar' Bertha Thompson" in Women's Studies, 2006, 35, pp.657-681). Starke has been identified as Wentworth in the most recent edition of Dictionary of Pseudonyms (Adrian Room (ed.), 2010).

        Der Judenspiegel. Judentum und Antisemitismus in der Weltgeschichte. Band 1 der Reihe "Kampfschriften der Obersten SA.-Führung" Bitte beachten Sie Nr. 9 unserer AGB (Druckwerke aus totalitären Staaten / 86 und 130 StGB, Jugendschutzgesetz)!

      (noch zu Nr.23337:) . . . "Was hat also der nationalsozialistische Staat überhaupt gegen Juden getan? Er hat sich in seinen inzwischen erlassenen Gesetzesbestimmungen einzig nur des Übergreifens und der Überheblichkeit einer im Gesamtvolk verschwindenden Minderheit erwähnt, um das deutsche Volk vor der jüdischen Ausbeutung und Aussaugung endlich tatkräftig zu schützen . . . Jeder ehrliche Deutsche wird aber diese unerlässliche Grenzziehung zwischen Deutschen und Juden nur freudig begrüßen. Durch Adolf Hitlers Weitsicht erfüllt nun das deutsche Volk eine europäische, ja eine Weltsendung, indem es als erstes Kulturvolk den Kampf gegen den asiatischen Erbfeind mutig begonnen hat. Wenn jetzt die anderen abendländischen Kulturvölker das deutsche Volk in seinem heldenhaften Ringen gegen die jüdische Weltmacht alleinlassen, dann verraten sie bei sich selbst die christliche und arische Idee und werfen sich kampflos dem schon langsam weichenden Gegner, dem jüdisch-kommunistischen und materialistischen Weltimperialismus, zum Fraße hin. Wir Deutschen aber danken unserem Führer aus tiefsten Herzen, daß nun wenigstens deutsches Land und deutsches Volk vom schleichenden jüdischen Gift befreit ist: . . . so schuf Adolf Hitler sich im Nationalsozialismus die sieghafte Waffe, mit der er jetzt Juda, den tausendjährigen Vampir und Ausbeuter des deutschen Volkes, für immer niedergezwungen hat". - Die Fotos tragen Unterschriften wie: Karl Liebknecht: jüdischer Hetzer und Hauptverbrecher der Novemberrevolution / Der jüdische Universitätsprofessor Theodor Lessing "Lehrmeister" für Heldenverachtung und Kriegsdienstverweigerung / "Revuetheater sucht 40 Girls." Arisches Mädchen vor jüdischer Prüfungskommission / Rassenschande!

        Köpfe des Alltags: Unbekante Menschen / Everyday Heads

      Berlin: Verlag Hermann Reckendorf, 1931. Light spotting to the covers at the spine heel, else near fine in limp black boards in a very good example of the scarce and fragile jacket, with shallow chipping at the head of the spine, bottom of the front panel by the flap fold, and spine heel. Very minor archival restoration present at the defects. A complete and attractive copy, quite uncommon in anything resembling a serviceable jacket.. First Edition. Quarto. Variant binding in limp boards, rather than spiral-bound. 80 plates, consisting exclusively of close-ups of heads, shot in an expressionistic style that belies the simplistic titling of the portraits. Seminal European photobook of the 30s; a highlight of the New Objectivity movement and a consensus highspot. Lerski was also a renowned filmmaker; he worked on Fritz Lang's Metropolis. (Roth 68-69; Parr / Badger, v1, 130-131; Open Book 98-99; Auer 172).

        Autograph Letter Signed ("V"), to her nephew, Quentin Claudian Stephen Bell

      Brantôme, France, 1931. 2 pp., recto and verso of single sheet of Hotel Moderne stationery. 8vo. Soiled, old folds and tears affecting a few letters. Framed and glazed on both sides. 2 pp., recto and verso of single sheet of Hotel Moderne stationery. 8vo. '... Bloomsbury rampart - opera - ballet - disappointed lovers, & lovers that feed on vapour'. A letter with excellent content, written at the end of Virginia and Leonard Woolf's motor tour through southwestern France in the spring of 1931, addressed to her nephew - and later, biographer - Quentin Bell. Woolf gives news of her travels, quotes a famous maxim of Menander (as delivered to her elderly French innkeeper), mentions Quentin's brother Julian and his father, Clive Bell, waxes ambiguous on Bloomsbury, and wonders whether it might be better to live in the French countryside. In part: "It's all very well, Dearest Claudian, telling me to write instantly, but I have only my natural hand available which you can't read. Also, it thunders & lightens, & the old half-wit grandmother of the proprietor turns to me for confidence. Rassurez-vous, Madame, I say from time to time, those whom the Gods love die young. She thinks this a great joke. Yes, we are on tour ... we are enjoying life and eat pates absolutely mellow and yellow with liver. It's a disgusting taste which I expect we share with the dogs, but for once I like to feel wholly and rabidly canine ... Tomorrow we go ... home - oh dear - to Bloomsbury rampart - opera - ballet - disappointed lovers, & lovers that feed on vapour. I've had lots of confidences lately - a tribute to my grey hair, & Clive has become a misogynist, a tribute to Mary [Hutchinson]. Barbara says she will stay at Monks House this summer - I must scrape poor Julian free from his great Barnacle. Why don't we live here - far lovelier, lovelier far, than Cassis - plains, heights, poplars, vineyards, of a subtlety & distinction like a moth's wing compared with the shell of a lobster ...." 1931 was a momentous year for Woolf. She finished her novel, The Waves, in February, making corrections to it in the spring and summer, before it appeared, to considerable acclaim, in October. Quentin Bell (1910-1996) was, of course, the son of Virginia's sister and fellow member of the Bloomsbury group, Vanessa Bell, who provided outstanding dust-jacket illustrations for a number of Virginia Woolf's books. Quentin Bell's two-volume biography of Woolf was published by the Hogarth Press in 1972.
