        Vaterland Europa

      Verlag fur Kulturpolitik G.M. B. H., Berlin, Germany 1932 - Biography by Robert Cummings: "Bronislaw Huberman was one of the towering figures among violinists of his generation. Yet despite lavish praise from Fürtwangler, Toscanini, Walter, and other major conductors and artists, he remained a controversial artist throughout his career, owing to his highly individual style of interpretation and to a technique that, while not weak or unimpressive, lacked the consistency in difficult passages of the finest virtuosos. Huberman was the son of a law clerk who was a good amateur musician himself. As a young child, Huberman showed remarkable talent, giving his first public concert at age seven. He studied with Michalowicz and Rosen, then at the Warsaw Conservatory with Isidor Lotto, all before he reached the age of ten. In Berlin, Joachim was impressed with the youth's talent, but not disposed toward teaching prodigies. He referred him to Markees, but it was, by Huberman's own assessment, his study in Berlin with Charles Grigorovich that honed his talents. At the age of 11, he gave a successful concert tour of Holland and Belgium and soon afterward gained the support of arts patron Count Zamoyski in Paris and singer Adelina Patti in London. The former presented him with a Stradivarius and the latter, after some wrangling, allowed him to play at some of her final concerts. At a January 1896 concert in Vienna, Huberman astonished Brahms with a performance of his violin concerto and by his late teens, he had scored numerous successes throughout Europe. He had even given one hugely successful tour of the United States in 1896-1897. In 1902, following a lengthy suspension of concert activity, Huberman suffered a great loss with the passing of his father, who had given up his law clerk position and sacrificed much else for his son's career. Huberman soon resumed concertizing with numerous successful tours. His only marriage came in 1910, to actress Elza Galafrés. Their union lasted but four years and produced one child, Johannes (born 1911). At the outbreak of World War I, Huberman was briefly interned, but he remained active throughout the next two decades, curtailing his schedule in 1933 with the rise of the Nazis. In the 1920s, Huberman became an active supporter of the Pan-European movement, even writing several essays later published in a book entitled Vaterland Europa (1932). He refused to play any concerts in Germany from 1933 on and in 1935 helped found the Palestine Symphony Orchestra (which in 1948 became the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra). Toscanini was engaged to lead this ensemble of mostly Jewish refugee musicians in their 1936 inaugural concert. Huberman went on tour that same year and during a concert given in New York's Carnegie Hall, his Stradivarius violin was stolen. (In 1985, the thief confessed his deed and two years later the instrument was recovered, but four decades after Huberman's death.) The purloined violin was a relatively minor misfortune for Huberman during the turbulent 1930s: a 1937 plane crash rendered him incapable of playing for over a year. In November 1938, he successfully returned to the concert stage in Egypt, and the following month he appeared as soloist with the Palestine Symphony Orchestra for the first time in his career. After a tour of Europe in 1939, Huberman relocated to New York, where he lived until the end of the war. Following cessation of hostilities, he took up residence near Lake Geneva, Switzerland. In 1946, he became ill and was unsuccessfully treated in Italy for six months. Huberman died in Corsier-sur-Vevey, Switzerland, in 1947. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Black Mischief

      London: Chapman & Hall 1932 - First edition, first issue. Publisher's marble patterned red and black cloth, spine lettered in gilt; in the original cream dust jacket, lettered in black and red. Near fine, some light spotting to the page edges, else bright and clean; unclipped dust jacket, with some light toning to the spine, minor soiling to the otherwise clean wrappers, some light spotting to the flaps. Overall a, fresh and unsophisticated copy. Inspired by Waugh's own excursions to Ethiopia, Black Mischief is an imperialist satire set in Azania, a fictional island nation off of the southeastern coast of Africa. Specifically, it tells of a young emperor's attempt to modernize his home nation after returning from England where he attended Oxford. Not only do his modernization efforts not only fail utterly, however, but they also cause the nation to regress into cannibalism and ultimately become a protectorate of the United Nations. Notably, Black Mischief features Waugh's popular hero Basil Seal. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        [Photo Album]: Belgian Girls in the 1930s

      Brussels. 1932-1938. Oblong quarto. Measuring 8" x 12". String-tied gray cloth over paper boards. Contains 220 sepia toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1.5" x 2" and 5" x 7", some with captions in French. The album is near fine with some edgewear with near fine or better photographs.A photo album kept by a Belgian girl from 1932 to 1938 featuring seaside vacations, girlish goofing around, and even trips to visit soldiers later in the album. The collection is full of splendid snapshots of girls enjoying the company of their friends posing, acting silly, and visiting family. The seaside photos show the girls in their bathing suits, dancing with boys, and sunbathing on the Belgian coast. There are photos of the women posing by Barrage de la Gileppe, a gravity dam that established the standard for modern European dam systems. They also went to the Cambre Abbey in Brussels, stopping on the grounds of the abbey to give each other rabbit ears, and the coastal town of Ostende, where they took numerous photos, a few in bathing suits suggest a pinup girl style. In 1936 they visited the barracks of Chartreuse de Liege which had recently been decommissioned and turned into a "simple barracks" and would eventually serve as a military hospital towards the end of World War II. Here we see the women of the album posing with soldiers as well as group photos of the troops in full uniform. One photo shows a small group of soldiers with one of them playing an accordion.An interesting collection of images of carefree young women in Belgium before the devastation caused by the events of World War II. .

        NEUES HAUS NEUE WELT/NEW HOUSE NEW WORLD

      Berlin, Germany: Rudolf Mosse Buchverlag, 1932. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/No Dust Jacket, As Issued.. Berlin, Germany: Rudolf Mosse Buchverlag, 1932. Hardcover. Fine/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. 72 pages. Collection of black-and-white photographs of the artist/architect/designer's home. One of the greatest photography, architecture, and home design books of the 20th century. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly the Third Edition. Published in a tiny first print run as a hardcover original only. There is no ISBN. The book is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Erich Mendelsohn: Oversize-volume format. Cream hard boards with titles embossed on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Arthur Koster. Text by Amedee Ozenfant in the German original and felicitous English and French translations. Printed in gravure by Rudolf Mosse Buchverlag in Berlin, Germany to the highest standards. The reproduction quality of each image is unsurpassed in its crispness, warmth, and tonal range. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Erich Mendelsohn's "Neues Haus Neue Welt/New House New World". The Mendelsohn House in Rupenhorn, Germany, which showcases the great architect/designer's aesthetics and worldview. Those of us accustomed to the glossy pages of Architectural Digest Magazine will never be the same again upon re-discovering this great book, first published in 1932. The Mendelsohn House is impeccable and sublime. As the contributor Amedee Ozenfant writes, it is Bach's music incarnated in structure and place. Its guiding principles are order, symmetry, and balance, realized in a completely Modern context. Hence the title. The best way to appreciate what Erich Mendelsohn has achieved is to say what it is not: It is elegant, NOT opulent. It is understated, NOT ostentatious. It is Classical and Modern at the same time, NOT nostalgic and sentimental. It is a house, NOT a palace. As such, it may not be to everyone's taste today because it isn't about "showing-off" excess, which is the prevailing aesthetic taste. Arthur Koster's photographs are captured for posterity in rich gravure that have never been surpassed. A legend upon its completion, the Mendelsohn House was seized by the Nazis. A Jew, Mendelsohn's entire fortune was confiscated; he was forced to flee first to the United Kingdom and eventually to the United States, where he rebuilt his shattered life and career as the chief exemplar of "Expressionist Functionalism" in architecture, creating the blueprint for America's department stores, designing some of its most celebrated structures, teaching at the University of California Berkeley, and building the bridge between Europe and America with Art Deco design. The guide to timeless elegance and beauty. An absolute "must-have" title for Erich Mendelsohn and photography collectors. <b><i> This title is a great book. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing (1932, no further indications) available online and is in fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. Please note: Copies of the Third Edition available online have serious flaws. A rare copy thus. </b></i> One of the greatest architect/designers of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy. .

        Harvey Cushing's Autograph Caption for Figure 22 (on p. 53) in his book Papers Relating to the Pituitary Body, Hypothalamus, and Parasympathetic Nervous System (1932). OFFERED WITH: Original Ink and Wash Drawing by Mildred Codding for figure 22.

      1932. 1932 - Very Good. Harvey Cushing's manuscript caption, with his revisions, is identical to the printed version on p. 53 in his book Papers Relating to the Pituitary Body, Hypothalamus, and Parasympathetic Nervous System (1932) "Through his friend Max Brödel, [Cushing] hired Mildred Codding then a student in the medical illustration program at Johns Hopkins, to come to the Brigham in 1929. Although she is seen in many early photographs in the operative theater, her position was quite distant from the table. In fact, a footnote from Cushing's article on cerebellar tumors captures his idea of the medical illustrator's role: 'It is customary for the surgeon to make sketches of the operative stages as he recollects them immediately at the conclusion of the procedures. No written description is of equal value, however crude the sketches. It is impossible for an artist to get near enough to the field with the patient in prone position for a direct view. The drawings accompanying the paper have been worked up by Miss Codding from the originals on the hospital histories eked out in some of the more recent cases by her own fleeting glimpses of the field' ["Experiences with the Cerebellar Astrocytomas. . . ", 1931]" (Moore et al., "Cushing: The Artist", in Black et al., Harvey Cushing at the Brigham, pp.131-32). "Mildred Codding: An Interview with Cushing's Medical Artist. Interview by Matthew R.

        Baghdad Sketches. With illustrations by E.N.Prescott. (INSCRIBED)

      The Times Press Ltd., Baghdad 1932, 1932, Hardcover, Book Condition: Good, 1st Edition, Inscribed by Author(s). The correct first edition of the author's first book (not published in England for a further five years). A presentation copy, inscribed by the author: "To Rose [Young] and the 'Masters of the Harsin' / with happy memories of Kuwait / from Freya Stark Nov. 1932" and with the recipient's signature inked above the inscription. 8vo. 132pp. Red cloth with paper spine and title labels. With twelve plates featuring drawings by E.N.Proscott (the English edition included a selection of Stark's photographs and a map, none of which were included in this original edition). Cloth faded at backstrip and spine label a little tanned and chipped. Cloth a little marked and chafed in places and with a small bookworm hole to the upper board and twenty subsequent leaves and another small area of nibbling to the inner hinge impacting five subsequent leaves (damn those peckish Iraqi psocoptera!). A short tear and a little accompanying creasing to the lower margin of one plate, and a touch of spotting to several of the others. Quite a bright copy of an extremely uncommon book, even more so with the presentation inscription (Stark was an extremely reluctant signer of her books). Not issued with a dust wrapper. The print run of this edition is unknown, but probably limited to 500 copies - certainly Stark, who worked for the 'Baghdad Times' throughout 1932, received no payment until 500 copies were sold. Rose Young (later Lady Rose Young) was the wife of Major Sir Hubert Winthrop Young who, in 1932, was appointed the first Minister of Baghdad and published a sympathetic book, 'The Independent Arab' (1933), detailing his diplomatic and military time in the Middle East. Stark holidayed with the Youngs and Mrs. Julian Huxley in Kuwait in early 1932. "We had our dish of rice and sheep and ate it with our fingers (Mrs. Huxley not really enjoying it) . The Youngs are charming to be out with: so pleasant and pleased with little things like beetles or sunsets or food." - from a letter to her mother, Flora Stark.

        Baghdad Sketches With illustrations by E N Prescott (INSCRIBED)

      The Times Press Ltd., Baghdad 1932, 1932. The correct first edition of the author's first book (not published in England for a further five years). A presentation copy, inscribed by the author: "To Rose [Young] and the 'Masters of the Harsin' / with happy memories of Kuwait / from Freya Stark Nov. 1932" and with the recipient's signature inked above the inscription. 8vo. 132pp. Red cloth with paper spine and title labels. With twelve plates featuring drawings by E.N.Proscott (the English edition included a selection of Stark's photographs and a map, none of which were included in this original edition). Cloth faded at backstrip and spine label a little tanned and chipped. Cloth a little marked and chafed in places and with a small bookworm hole to the upper board and twenty subsequent leaves and another small area of nibbling to the inner hinge impacting five subsequent leaves (damn those peckish Iraqi psocoptera!). A short tear and a little accompanying creasing to the lower margin of one plate, and a touch of spotting to several of the others. Quite a bright copy of an extremely uncommon book, even more so with the presentation inscription (Stark was an extremely reluctant signer of her books). Not issued with a dust wrapper. The print run of this edition is unknown, but probably limited to 500 copies - certainly Stark, who worked for the 'Baghdad Times' throughout 1932, received no payment until 500 copies were sold. Rose Young (later Lady Rose Young) was the wife of Major Sir Hubert Winthrop Young who, in 1932, was appointed the first Minister of Baghdad and published a sympathetic book, 'The Independent Arab' (1933), detailing his diplomatic and military time in the Middle East. Stark holidayed with the Youngs and Mrs. Julian Huxley in Kuwait in early 1932. "We had our dish of rice and sheep and ate it with our fingers (Mrs. Huxley not really enjoying it) . The Youngs are charming to be out with: so pleasant and pleased with little things like beetles or sunsets or food." - from a letter to her mother, Flora Stark.. Inscribed by Author(s). 1st Edition. Hardcover. Good.

        Baghdad Sketches

      Baghdad: The Times Press Ltd, 1932. First edition. 12 plates (line drawings by E.N. Prescott). 132 pp. Original red cloth with mounted paper labels, corners lightly rubbed; binding sound, text and endpapers unmarked. Very good, this first edition was not issued with a dust jacket. First edition. 12 plates (line drawings by E.N. Prescott). 132 pp. STARK'S FIRST BOOK. The scarce first book by one of the great twentieth century travellers. Born in Paris, brought up in Devon and Italy, Stark studied history at Bedford College, University of London, then trained as a nurse and learned Arabic at the School of Oriental Studies. "In 1929 she moved to Baghdad, where she went slumming in Arab clothing and was an outsider among priggish British expatriates" (ODNB). During this time she made two journeys into the mountains of western Iran. The first took her to Luristan, which lies between Harsin and Khorramabad. Her second trip was to Ilam and the Kabirkuh mountains. The War Office made maps based on the information she brought back and her profile in the expat community rose as a result. In her authoritative work on female travellers, Jane Robinson sums up Stark's career, "In all her journeys she has been able to distill and communicate a rich philosophy of travel and to illustrate the art of travelling in time as well as place. She carries the past with her ... always teaching and learning at the same time. She is, quite simply, a classic." Howgego, S61; Robinson, Wayward Women, pp 28-30
