        Nearly 300 pages of documentation with numerous official signatories: The Russian Communist Purges!

      "Personal files of Red Army officers. Most of these people were repressed and later rehabilitated. They include service records, attestations, autobiographies, Party references, extracts from minutes of Party commissions for purges of Party organizations, photos and other military documents. Most - end of 1920s - 1930s. Some files contain of 20 documents other 30 or 50 ,the most interesting are the extracts from minutes of Party commissions. here are translations from extracts from similar files that may or may not be included in this archive: 1. The District Party Commission ascertained that Kopachev: 1. Kept connection with Poland till 1932; received letters and cuttings from newspapers about USSR and also the ""Selrod"" march; as he stated kept correspondence with his familiars who lived in Poland; 2. He concealed from the Party Organization that his two uncles and wife's father were convicted, one uncle dispossessed. It is ascertained by the Red Army Political Administration Kopachev till 1932 had a letter connection with his familiar Stefanovich who lived in Poland and he did not conceal about it. He concealed that his two uncles were repressed in 1929. The Political Commission of the Red Army Political Administration by its decision from 25.3.1938 restored Kopachev as a Party member. The Party Commission told off Kopachev a severe reprimand and warning for relaxing his vigilance and incomplete interpretation in autobiography in the interrogatory of his relatives. We consider necessary to discharge Kopachev from the Red Army. The Chief of the Personnel Department of the Red Army Political Administration ...The Instructor of the Department ..."" 2.""Extract of the Meeting of the Party Commission No3 for Purge of the Party Organization of the 75th Infantry Regiment. Listened: Merezhko F.A. The Battalion Commander ... At the beginning of 1920 he entered the Red Army 15th Division and was appointed a Company Commander. In June he took part in fights against Wrangel troops; was captive together with his company. As a captive he was sent to a reserve battalion where he graduated from a training crew and was appointed an assistant of the instructor of training persons. At his words he escaped to the Red Army during the retreat of Wrangel but the Commission ascertained he did not escape from the captivity. During his way he entered a Makhno detachment from which he went over to the 5th Latvian Regiment. On Dec. 1921 he was directed to Chuguev school and joined the Party at the same year but was excluded from there for accomplishment a religious rite (wedding) ...Questions: It is incomprehensible why did Merezhko escaped from the White Army being a teacher there. He must has escaped as they were pressed to the Black Sea ...The opinion of the Chief of the Commission: going over from Wrangel to the Red Army was forced. The White Army retreated and he had nowhere to go"". Speaked: - 13 persons expressed their negative opinions about him. One of them, for example:""No 9. It is evident the Merezhko relatives are not port workers. Merezhko is a careerist. He was fixed up to study all his life. He studied at the White Army too. He took a wife - a gymnasia pupil and got married in church on her wish. He was excluded from the Party because of that. Joined the Party for second time just because the Commissar told him: ""You must be in the Party"". Such a ""communist"" must have no place in the Party"". ... The Commission resolved to exclude him from the Party because of concealment of his stay at the training crew of the White Army; concealment the fact of his captivity by the Red Army after the seizure of Perecop in 1920; concealment the origin of his wife who was a daughter of a possessions manager ... supported feelings of the demoralized commanders"

        Profile: An Anthology Collected in MCMXXXI

      Milan: John Scheiwiller, 1932. First Edition. An enormously important poetry anthology, one of only 250 copies, featuring many of the key Modernist writers of the period, including James Joyce, William Carlos Williams, W.B. Yeats, Marianne Moore, T.S. Eliot, e.e. cummings, Archibald MacLeish, Louis Zukofsky, Basil Bunting, Ford Madox Ford, and many others, with two groups of poems from the radical magazine, "New Masses." Ezra Pound, the editor of this collection, appears quite often. 8vo., 142 pages, in original green wrappers folded over stiff white blanks. A trace of foxing to the top edge and some light creasing of the wrappers, but a Near Fine copy. OCLC lists 6 copies, all in U.S. libraries. No other copies in the market as of February 2016. Gallup B28. RARE. Throughout this volume, Ezra Pound adds his personal comments about some of the poets and their works. He doesn't include any poems by Robert Frost, but instead makes this acid comment about Frost: "As a matter of history it should be stated that from 1912 Robert Frost had been producing New England Eclogues. Sincere, very dull, without tragedy, without emotion, without metrical interest, a faithful record of life without intellectual interest or any desire for anything not in it. The work, inferior to [George] Crabbe, but infinitely better than fake. A great deal of New England life is presumably as Frost records it. It is difficult to see how such life differs greatly from that of horses and sheep." (Page 46)

        Wundergarten der Natur. Neue Bilddokumente schöner Pflanzenformen

      Verlag für Kunstwissenschaft, Berlin 1932 - Folio. XIII, [3]pp (text), 120 loose plates, as issued. Original grey cloth portfolio, with red lettering on spine and front cover. "Wundergarten der Natur" is the follow-up volume to "Urformen der Kunst" (1928). Karl Blossfeldt was a university teacher and used his photographs to teach formal art studies at the Royal School of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Berlin. He photographed plants systematically with a 5 x 7" (13x18cm) view camera of his own construction. Immensely popular and profound in their simplicity, Blossfeldt's typology of plant forms drew parallels between nature and art. They were used as inspiration for jewelers, wrought iron workers, designers, craftsman, and artists worldwide. His vision is as fresh and unforgettable today as one could imagine it to be when this book was first published. As Martin Parr and Gerry Badger point out, while Blossfeldt's work was "a key model for the 'typologies' school of contemporary German photography.it was not a Conceptual work of art. It was, like so much German photography of this period, pedagogical in nature, as much founded on the Arts-and-Crafts ethos as Bauhaus principles." This portfolio is complete with its 120 striking photogravure plates, each numbered 1-120, together with 16 loose text leaves in German containing an essay by the photographer and a list of plates and titles. Some foxing along fore-edge and upper margin of portfolio. Text in German. Portfolio in overall good to good+, interior in very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Thoughts and Adventures.

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited,, 1932. Octavo. Original olive cloth, gilt lettered spine and front cover. With the dust jacket. Housed in a custom made grey-brown buckram slipcase. Portrait frontispiece of Churchill painting. A few very minor nicks and chips, light creasing to head of jacket spine. An excellent copy. First edition, first impression. The second volume of Churchill's autobiographical writings, covering his early political career, the battle of Sidney Street, a near silence on Gallipoli, service on the Western Front, the negotiation of the Irish settlement, thoughts on the "Mass effects of modern life" and life "Fifty years hence". A collection of Churchill's magazine and newspaper journalism written in the same lighter, informal style as My Early Life, the success of Thoughts and Adventures came as a considerable surprise to the publisher. Published on 10 November 1932 in a run of 4,000, three additional printings of 1,000 were required in the same month, two of them before publication, Butterworth writing to Churchill: "We are truly delighted at this success which confounds the Jonahs of the Bookselling tradeÂ…To keep pace with the increasing demand, we had to get both printers and binders to work overtime. The sheets were delivered by passenger train, and the cases were made by the binders in advance" (quoted in Cohen). A very difficult book to find in a jacket and in such superior condition.

        Booms and Depressions

      1932 - FISHER, Irving. Booms and Depressions. Some First Principles. New York: Adelphi, (1932). Octavo, original green cloth. $2200.First edition of Fisher’s work connecting monetary fluctuations to extreme periods of the business cycle.In this work, Fisher puts forth the theory that booms and depressions may stem from “deranged” money, or currency that is behaving irrationally due to various value-skewing factors such as debt, hoarding, confidence, and consumption. Considered “the father of monetary economics” (Pressman, 91), “Irving Fisher was, in the opinion of many, the leading economic theorist in the United States during the first half of the 20th century. Although his contributions to economic theory and to the development of econometrics ensure him a preeminent position among contemporary economists, he was a versatile man. In his day he was equally well-known as social philosopher, teacher, inventor, businessman, and passionate crusader for many social causes” (ANB). Without scarce dust jacket, rarely found. Small notation to front free endpaper.Cloth with small stain to rear panel. An about-fine copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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. . .
