         [Photographs of the Hostilities in Shanghai in 1932]

      1932. 253 snapshots most held in place by photo corners, 22 black card leaves, 5 are loose. Some photographs and leaves are missing in the early section of the album though fortunately these seem likely to have held more personal images judging by those that immediately follow. The covers of the album missing. One photograph is torn in two but the others are all in good condition. A very interesting album which opens with photographs reflecting European life in China in the 1930s. Domestic scenes, snapshots taken at leisure - on board a yacht, hunting, at the races and while viewing the "Pagodas up Country' etc. Six photographs show the arrival of an aeroplane at the race course and an assembled crowd of people including uniformed servicemen to meet it. What makes this album unusual and particularly interesting are the 145 photographs which show hostilities in Shanghai in 1932. This second part of the album is serious in nature with many photographs of corpses, the bombing of Shanghai from a distance, close up images of devastation caused, fighting in the street, barricades, and other images grimly portrait the city grimly at war. Many of the images were taken within the Shanghai International settlement. (When referring to this item please quote stockid 159540).

         Black Mischief.

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1932. FIRST EDITION, with proof state dust-jacket. Octavo (19 x 13cm), pp.303 [1]. In publisher's snakeskin-patterned red and black cloth with gilt titles to spine. With publisher's PROOF STATE cream dust-jacket, with a blank rear flap and no price marked to the front flap.Edges heavily spotted; slight reading lean. Spine lightly sunned. Jacket is slightly discoloured with some minor chips and closed tears to edges. Very good. Waugh's third novel is a controversial book which established him as a master satirist. Set on the fictional African island of Azania, 'Black Mischief' is a thinly veiled reference to the then empire of Abyssinia, now Ethiopia. The novel chronicles the efforts of the English-educated Emperor Seth, assisted by a fellow Oxford graduate (Waugh's recurring character) Basil Seal, to modernize his Empire.

         The Taxi-Dance Hall

      University of Chicago Press, Chicago 1932 - First edition. Octavo. 300, [1]pp., three folding maps of Chicago bound in. Small stains near the spine, thus very good, in very good or better dustwrapper with a few small stains, mostly on the front panel. Sociological exploration of the taxi-dance hall in Chicago. The author's conclusion was that the hall, where young girls danced with gentlemen for payment (for the proverbial "dime-a-dance") was a school for sexual exploitation, but which might fulfill a positive place in society for lonely men if the halls were carefully monitored. Although the taxi-dance has become extinct, its cousin the lap dance is apparently still flourishing, albeit we are told, for somewhat more than a dime. [Attributes: First Edition]

He admitted that the original idea of Brave New World was to challenge H.G. Wells' Utopian vision...

         Avtomati: neveroiatni razkazi [Machines: incredible stories]. (Signed by the author)

      Sofia: Izdanie T. F. Chipev, 1932. First edition. Small octavo (17.5 × 12.5 cm). Original pictorial wrappers by Sirak Skitnik; 110, [2] pp. Signed and inscribed by the author to half title. Wrappers with light wear and dust-soiling; old shelf-label to rear wrapper; a few pages unevenly cut open; occasional foxing; overall still good or better. Sirak Skitnik's cover for this collection of fantastic stories ranks among the high spots of Bulgarian avant-garde book design and constructivist typography. Skitnik (the pseudonym of Panaiot Todorov, 1884-1943) was one of the most productive (and iconic) graphic artists of Bulgarian modernism, whose work ranged from the Expressionism of the early 1920s to Constructivism in the early 1930s. Svetoslav Minkov (1902-1966) began his career as an Expressionist and absurdist writer, pioneering the "diabolist" genre in 1922 and introducing German "supernatural" fiction into Bulgarian literature, after being influenced by the circle around Kubin and Meyrink during an extended stay in Munich (see Domenico Jacono, Bulgarian modernism, p. 64). This collection consists of five science fiction stories that combine absurdist elements with social satire and would lay the foundation of the genre in Bulgarian literature. Jacono 44.
