Gorky, Maksim; Leopold Auerbach; Semen G. Firin; & Aleksandr Rodchenko, et. al
1931. 407 pp. volume on the construction of the White Sea-Baltic Canal through convict labor, originally called the Stalin White Sea-Baltic Canal (Belomorsko-Baltiiskii Kanal Imeni Stalina), which was constructed by forced labor from gulag inmates from 1931 to 1933. Illustrated profusely throughout with reproductions from photographs and drawings by Aleksandr Rodchenko, and two color maps, several illustrations folding, and gelatin photograph of Stalin as frontispiece. Large 4to. Original cloth with embossed brass portrait of Stalin mounted to front cover. Some minor abrasions and rubbing, soiling, overall very good. Moscow (Gos. Izd. "Istoriia Fabrik i Zavodov") 1934. The White Sea-Baltic Canal opened on August 2, 1933, connecting the White Sea, in the Arctic Ocean, with Lake Onega, which is connected to the Baltic Sea, and runs for a total of 141 miles, 30 of which are man-made. According to various records, approximately 12,000-25,000 gulag prisoner-laborers died during construction. This was the first major project constructed in the Soviet Union using forced labor. Important avant-garde artist and photographer Aleksandr Rodchenko worked secretly for the Soviet authorities as the only "civil" photographer on site, to photograph and glorify this project. He later drafted the design of the propaganda illustrated magazine "USSR in Construction" in December 1933, and was responsible for the illustration and design of this volume. Prison labor camp projects were not usually publicized, but this particular project was thought to have rehabilitating effects on the workers and … [Click Below for Full Description]

Escher, M. C.
Original print, 1931. Original woodcut (18.0 x 14.0 cm) on Japanese paper sheet (26.6 x 17.8 cm). In frame.= A fine example of the art of Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898-1972). In 1931, the art historian and director of the Dutch Historical Institute in Rome, G. J. Hoogewerff, contacted Escher for a new project: modern emblemata, in the style of the 17th century Dutch emblemata, being four-lined epigrams - with a single illustration and a Latin motto - of an allegorical, esoteric and philosophical nature. Escher contributed 24 woodblock designs, each combined with Hoogewerff's text. This most probably is a proof of one of these designs, known by the Dutch name "Vlieger" (kite) - the principal object in this work. The Latin text above could be translated as "Shining high, followed by nothing". The Dutch text below reads: "Push me, an upward force, a forces that ties me down, an aimless thing to the eye, [a] lofty toy of a child". In 1932, the complete series was published in a book titled "XXIV Emblemata". Interestingly, for this book Hoogewerff used a pseudonym: "Drijfhout". This is a fairly common Dutch name that means "driftwood". Two versions of "Kite" were made; the other (Bool 155) at the same time as this one. However, it is much more narrow, and therefore deviates from Escher's other "Emblemata" designs in width. This Escher print has a paper size - and thus a margin size - considerably larger than usual. As noted, this probably indicates that this is a proof print. Escher's monogram in the top centre, below "nihil". Not examined out of frame. A very good copy.

Zetkin, Clara, German Marxist theorist and activist (1857-1933).
1931. 8vo. 2 pages. To the actress Margarete Walkotte, who had inquired about a relief fund: "Unfortunately, I cannot give you any information about the 500,000 Mark fund. I have not heard anything about it. This, of course, does not prove the falsehood of the newspaper's claim. I will try to find out something specific about it [...]". Moreover, she is upset about a celebratory banquet: "The past secretary of education is holding a banquet at Kroll's with several dozen so-called 'celebrities', and many thousands of artists, scholars and scientists, teachers, technicians, and civil servants are suffering severe hardships, indeed are starving. This is the much-heralded 'culture' of bourgeois Germany! [...]". - On headed paper.

Stevens writes that 'Banal Sojourn' "in Harmonium is a garden poem in your sense, if not in your mind. In the new edition of that book there is a poem written in Norfolk or certainly suggested by what I saw there once in a visit. Thanking you for your note..." The "new edition" of Harmonium to which Stevens refers, published by Knopf in 1931, eliminated three poems from the first edition of 1923 and included an additional fourteen poems.

There were 103 copies printed, of which 100 were numbered. Threatened with legal action, almost all copies were given away by the well-meaning pirate publishers . Only light wear; about fine.
