        [Photo Album]: The Bergman-Osterberg Physical Training College 1932 - 1935

      Hampstead, England. 1932-1935. Oblong octavo. String-tied green leather album with stamped gilt decorations measuring 7.5" x 11". Contains 106 captioned black and white or sepia toned photographs measuring between 3" x 2" to 5" x 3". The album has some modest tears, and some bowing with the pages overall near fine or better with slight age toning along the edges. A photo album of Yvonne Greenwood's experience at the Bergman-Osterberg Physical Training Camp for women between 1932 and 1935. Depicted throughout are women exercising, dancing, helping one another with handstands, and playing various sports such as swimming, tennis, and netball (a sport which was created by Martina Bergman-Osterberg). The school was founded by the Swedish born Bergman-Osterberg in Hampstead in 1885, before moving to Dartford in 1895. In addition to being the first physical education instructor's college in England, attendance was limited to women. Bergman-Osterberg believed that by directly encouraging women to be active in sport and education she was helping aid in women's emancipation. Bergman-Osterberg also revolutionized the way women dressed for physical activity by replacing the corset for the gymslip which she created in 1892 and which can be seen throughout the photos. The album portrays the women of the college freely participating in activities where they were encouraged to take care of themselves and make themselves better people through the use of sport, dance, and calisthenics. The college helped contribute to the social change that was occurring throughout the 1920s and 30s. This album provides an extensive look at early women's physical education. .

Precious autograph signed by the author Jean Ballard, South Cahiers director who published the good sheets of travel just before its release, and one of the longest reports devoted to the novel. Few were those who immediately recognized the importance of this first novel. Céline yet offered his manuscript to Gallimard, Bossart, Figuière Denoël and of course that was the only one to show real enthusiasm. It does, however, drew only 2000 copies and asked various journals to publish the good sheets, the Cahiers du Sud, Europe and World a few days before publication. The registered copies of the deluxe edition on Arches or alfa, reserved for a few close of the author, are even more popular than 110 major papers put on the market. Unnumbered mostly, they have to date not been accurately counted. One can cite to date than those of R. Beckers, Mr. Dorian J. Ajalbert, L. Daudet, L. and M. Descaves (on Arches), R.-L. Doyon, L. Hennique, G. Picard, Rosny young, C. and V. Moremans Dullin, R. and J. Gallier Ballard. These copies do not contain the specifications of the ads in fine editor. Our copy is presented in a signed cabinet Julie Nadot reproducing the original cover of this book.

Rares furent ceux qui reconnurent immédiatement l'importance de ce premier roman. Céline proposa pourtant son manuscrit à Gallimard, Bossart, Figuière et bien sûr Denoël qui fut le seul à manifester un réel enthousiasme. Il n'en tira cependant que 2000 exemplaires et sollicita diverses revues pour en publier les bonnes feuilles, dont les Cahiers du Sud, Europe et Monde quelques jours avant la parution. Les exemplaires nominatifs du tirage de tête sur Arches ou sur alfa, réservés à quelques proches de l'auteur, sont encore plus recherchés que les 110 grands papiers mis dans le commerce. Non numérotés pour la plupart, ils n'ont à ce jour pas été exactement dénombrés. On ne peut donc citer à ce jour que ceux de R. Beckers, M. Dorian, J. Ajalbert, L. Daudet, L. et M.

        Signed Letter on State of New York, Executive Chamber Letterhead (March 10, 1932)

      1932 - Typed letter signed by Franklin D. Roosevelt (with full name) on his official governor's embossed letterhead. This letter (dated March 10, 1932) is addressed to Edward E. Spafford, Esq. and pertains to the removal of animals from the 66th Street Armory in New York City, with the notion that there would be a conflict with privately run stables. Interesting to note that the armory in question is where the New York Antiquarian Book Fair is held each April and we exhibitors often feel exactly like the animals that were penned in there eighty-plus years ago. Letter has been folded twice and is lightly age toned, top rear edge lightly stained from two paperclips. Very Good+. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Breviario di Ercole I d'Este. Facsimile e commentario del codice Breviarium secundum consuetudiem Romanae Curiae. Ms. Lat. CCCCXXIV=Ms. V.G. 1. Biblioteca estense universitaria.

      Imago (Rimini) - Tiratura limitata a 900 esemplari in numeri arabi, 25 esemplari in numeri romani per copie destinate ad Istituzioni. Testi di Ernesto Milano. Presentazione di Luca Bellingeri. Rimini, s.d.; rilegato in pelle e metallo d'orato, pp. 1338, tavv. col., ill. b/n col., cm 26,5x38 (facsimile). Edizione in facsimile di altissimo livello, fedele all'originale in ogni minimo dettaglio, del Breviario di Ercole I D'Este. "Caro Gnoli [.] sono lieto di darti la notizia che fu ritrovato il Breviario Erculeo portato a Roma sino dal 1932 e depositato al Ministero degli Esteri. ora è presso il nostro Ministero e credo che non tarderà di giungere a codesta sede [.] A Roma l'ho esaminato per bene e t'assicuro che è una gran cosa, degna di fare da compagno alla Bibbia [.]" Le entusiastiche impressioni inviate da Domenico Fava, già Direttore della Biblioteca Estense e fautore e testimone del recupero della Bibbia di Borso d'Este, bastano da sole ad indicare la grandiosità e l'importanza di questo manoscritto dovuto alla committenza del Duca di Ferrara Ercole I che volle rivaleggiare in grandezza con il fratello Borso cui era succeduto. Per volontà di Ercole, tra il 1502 e il 1504, viene esemplato e miniato il "Breviario grande di nostro Signore", vero e proprio epicedio della miniatura ferrarese che, agli albori del Sec. XVI, al culmine della sua maturità, riceve nuova linfa dagli stilemi propri della miniatura lombarda e di quella fiamminga, fondendoli e armonizzandoli mirabilmente con i canoni già in essere nella città estense, dando vita a un autentico capolavoro degno di rivaleggiare con la Bibbia di Borso, alla quale, in alcune pagine può addirittura risultare superiore. Matteo da Milano che, arrivando a Ferrara, porta con se il frutto della sua formazione lombarda, è l'artifex maximus di questa impresa, coadiuvato da una grande "equipe" minatoria composta da Tommaso da Modena e da Cesare e Andrea della Vieze. A questi artisti si devono le miniature delle 491 carte che compongono questo prezioso manoscritto, ricco di 45 carte miniate a pagina intera, di 11 carte miniate a metà pagina, di 40 scene illustrative di episodi del testo in piccoli riquadri rettangolari, di ben 17160 iniziali di cui 308 abitate, istoriate o ambientate con scene o personaggi del testo del Breviario, di 31 iniziali semplicemente decorate, di 8457 iniziali in oro su sfondo blu e di 8306 iniziali filigranate con sottili volute intrecciate, tracciate a penna con inchiostro rosso, blu o verde. Numeri che basterebbero da soli a definire il Breviario erculeo un autentico monumento della miniatura ferrarese. Il manoscritto giunto a noi in magnifico stato di conservazione, è arricchito con grande dovizia da motivi ornamentali, da fregi di stile ferrarese, da figure di santi, ritratti, immagini di piante e animali, emblemi e stemmi riguardanti Ercole I e il suo successore Alfonso I che, alla morte del padre, servendosi degli stessi artisti, volle lasciare nel codice testimonianza anche del suo possesso, inserendo spesso o sovrapponendo le sue imprese e il suo nome. La legatura attuale, eseguita a Vienna ai primi dell'Ottocento, in marocchino rosso, è ornata di fregi di argento dorato, da cantonali in argento di stile rinascimentale e da fermagli, anch' essi in argento dorato, di stile gotico, probabilmente appartenenti alla legatura originale. L'avventurosa storia del codice, iniziata nei primi del Cinquecento, dopo la permanenza per quasi tre secoli nella "guardaroba" ducale, prosegue con la parentesi viennese dal 1801 al 1831 voluta da Ercole III per sottrarre il prezioso cimelio alle mire francesi, con la permanenza nella Biblioteca ducale fino al 1859 e con la definitiva asportazione in quell'anno da parte di Francesco V che lo porta con se insieme alla Bibbia di Borso e dell'Offiziolo Alfonsino. Trattenuto dal Duca presso la corte di Vienna, il Breviario, già privato di quattro carte miniate asportate da una "mano sacrilega", in

        A Game of Golf - A Book of Reminiscence [in the Rare Original Dustjacket]. With Introduction by Bernard Darwin.

      Boston, Houghton Mifflin, 1932.. First Edition - First Printing. 8°. IX, 273 pages with the famous photographic frontispiece of Ouimet and his Caddy Eddie Lowery and several more photographs within the book. Original Hardcover with original dustjacket in protective Mylar. Near fine Hardcover with only minor signs of external wear. The very good dustjacket with several chips and sunned spine. It is neary impossible to find this book in its original dustjacket.. Donovan-Jerris O6340. Francis Ouimet, a twenty-year of amateur, defeated the two greatest British professionals of the day, Harry Vardon and Ted Ray, in a playoff for the 1913 U.S. Open. The stunning victory placed golf on the front page of many American newspapers for the first time. One year later, Ouimet captured the U.S. Amateur, a title he secured for a second time in 1931. Beginning with a victory in the 1914 French Amateur, and continuing for more than three decades, Francis Ouimet remained one of the great international figures in the game. He represented the United States in the first Anglo-American match at Hoylake in 1921, and participated in every Walker Cup match from 1922 to 1949. In 1951, Ouimet was named first American Captain of the R&A. Ouimet's autobiography "A Game of Golf" (1932) should be considered among the Classics of American golf biographies.

Bergman-Osterberg believed that by directly encouraging women to be active in sport and education she was helping aid in women's emancipation. Bergman-Osterberg also revolutionized the way women dressed for physical activity by replacing the corset for the gymslip which she created in 1892 and which can be seen throughout the photos. The album portrays the women of the college freely participating in activities where they were encouraged to take care of themselves and make themselves better people through the use of sport, dance, and calisthenics. The college helped contribute to the social change that was occurring throughout the 1920s and 30s. This album provides an extensive look at early women's physical education. .

Die Bücher Steiners sind dicke Bände verworrenster Okultlehren, die heute nur noch Anthroposophen zugänglich gemacht werden. Sie werden dadurch nicht wertvoller! Steiner hat die okkulten Lehren, die zum induzierten Irresein verführen, unter einem großen Phrasenschwall verhüllt. Er hat die gleiche Unverfrorenheit, wie viele für jüdisch-völkische Ziele wirkende Juden, gar manches, was vernünftig klingt, von anderen zu übernehmen, um dadurch umso sicherer auch geistig wertvollere Menschen anzuziehen. Schält man den Phrasenschwall aber weg und holt die zum Schwachsinn, ja zur völligen Geisteskrankheit verführenden Wahnlehren heraus, dann freilich zeigt sich das Ungesunde und auch das für die politische geheime Tätigkeit so Wichtige, daß nämlich seine Opfer von ihm auf das furchtbarste beeinflusst werden konnten, wie er dies ja auch mit dem Generalstabschef Moltke vor der Marneschlacht zu erfolgreich getan hat. . . . Steiner war Jude. Er selbst hat das zwar oft bestritten und seine Anhänger bestreiten es heute noch. Die nächsten Freunde und Verwalter seines Geistesgutes zu Steiners Lebzeiten waren Juden. Das beweist noch nichts, lässt aber Schlüsse zu. Seinem Aussehen nach war Steiner Jude. Jüdisches Aussehen ohne jüdisches Blut wäre ein biologisches Weltwunder. Wunder auf diesem Gebiet gibt es nicht. Seine Sprache war jüdisch, er mauschelte. Seine Schreibweise ist jüdisch, sie ist gemauschelt. Es genügt, einen Blick auf seine nachgelassenen Schriften zu werfen. Sie sind nicht nachgefeilt und tragen infolgedessen das Mauschelgepräge ganz unverhüllt. Sein Auftreten war jüdisch. Unbefangene haben sich vielfach hierdurch abgestoßen gefühlt und sind, zu ihrem Glück, dadurch den gelegten Schlingen entgangen. Seine Lehre ist jüdisch. Wem das alles noch kein vollgültiger Beweis ist, der wird vielleicht zur Einsicht gelangen, wenn er erfährt, daß Steiner in einem unbedachten Augenblick die Maske hat fallen lassen. Er hat sich in einem Zeitpunkt freudigster Erregung über das Gelingen seiner Lebensarbeit als volkstreuen Juden bekannt . . . Seine Geisteslehre schillert in allen Farben, sie enthält alles, vom plumpsen Aberglauben bis zu hohen geistigen Ansprüchen. Er ist Spiritist und Hellseher, er hat eine neue Seelenwanderungslehre aufgestellt und eine neue Religion gestiftet, er nennt sie das 5.Evangelium. In diesem lehrt er, daß seinerzeit 2 Jesus Knaben geboren worden sind: in dem einen inkarnierte sich Zarathustra, während der andere normal blieb. Als die beiden Knaben 12 Jahre alt wurden, wechselte der Geistes Zarathustras aus dem Körper des ersten in den des zweiten über. Als dieser zweite 30Jahre alt wurde, da befiel ihn außerdem noch der Astralleib Buddhas" / "Nach allgemeinen zutreffenden Ausführungen über die Rassenunterschiede behandelte der Redner die Streitfrage des Artiertums Jesu, wobei er zu dem Schluss kam: "Jesus war ein J u d e ." - "Aber", so fuhr der Redner fort, "das interessiert uns gar nicht; das wollen wir gar nicht wissen! Wir wollen Jesus d e u t s c h e r l e b e n. - Der Arierparagraph für Kirchenbeamte, sagte der Redner (der Deutschen Christen) bestehe zu vollem Recht; denn einem Judenchristen sei die artgemäße Verkündigung des Evangeliums aufgrund des aus dem Blut stammenden Rasseunterschiedes u n m ö g l i c h . Das Evangelium selbst sei im Deutschen Volkstum tief verwurzelt, bedürfe aber artgemäßer Verkündigung. Denn: nicht die j ü d i s c h e Religion, sondern der S e m i t , der J u d e seit das Volksfeindliche" (Volksmissionsdienst der neuen Reichskirche)"

        Am Heiligen Quell Deutscher Kraft, Monatsschrift des Deutschvolks / Ludendorffs Halbmonatsschrift. Jahrgänge 1932-1939 * 8 Bände,

      München, Ludendorffs Verlag GmbH, 1932 - 1939. - Acht vollständige Jahrgänge Ausgabe, gebunden als solide Festeinbände der Zeit (Halbkalliko-Bände im Format 16 x 22,3 cm) jeweils mit schreibmaschinengeschriebenem Rückentitel auf Papierschild, Deckelbezug mit Handmarmorpapier, Ganzsprenkelschnitt. 8 Bände mit insgesamt etwa 5.500 Seiten, mit vielen Fotoabbildungen auf Kunstdruckpapier (u.a. auch das Landhaus Ludendorff in Tutzing am Starnberger See / Eine Aufnahme aus der Freimaurerloge "Libanon zu den 3 Cedern" in Erlangen / Fotoserie "Bilder aus dem Heldenkampf des Deutschen Volkes: Bilder aus dem Großen Hauptquartier zu Avesnes / Fotostrecke: Die Enthüllung der Ludendorff-Büste von Prof.Manzel im Zeughaus zu Berlin), Schrift: Fraktur, die vorderen Heftumschläge teilweise mit eingebunden. - Aus dem Vorwort (Folge 1/1932): "Uns Deutschen ist durch die christliche Lehre die Einheit von Blut (Rasseerbgut), Glaube, Kultur und Wirtschaft nach den Weisungen des Gottes des jüdischen Volkes Jahweh und getreu dem Wirken seines Sohnes Jesus Christus genommen. Fremdes Recht vertiefte diese Wirkung. Wir ließen uns völlig entwurzeln und "hinauserlösen". So konnten wir Beute derer werden, die uns die Fremdlehren als ein geschlossenes System aufzwangen und uns lehrten, Fremdes als Arteigenes und Gemüt Ergreifendes anzusehen, und uns jedes freie Forschen verwehrten. Der Bann wurde gebrochen, als Luther die Bannbulle, das Zeichen päpstlicher Gerichtsgewalt in Deutschen Landen, verbrannte. Der Bann wurde gebrochen, als Geistesfürsten Erkenntnisse auf Erkenntnisse häuften, bis im Weltkriege und durch ihn infolge unerhörter Tücke und gewaltiger Schicksalsschläge wieder die Sprache des Erbgutes deutlich vernehmbar wurde, und meine Frau in kühnem und folgerichtigen Geistesbau, auf den Bahnen Kants und Schopenhauers weiterschreitend, den Sinn des Seins erkannte und dabei, im Einklang mit dem Erwachen Deutschen Blutes, die Grundlage legte zur arteigenen Gotterkenntnis und einer Lebensmoral, die den einzelnen wieder fest im Volk verwurzelt. So ist denn Deutsche Weltanschauung wieder geworden, die uns die Einheit von Blut (Rasseerbgut), Glaube, Kultur und Wirtschaft in Einklang mit allen Erkenntnissen der Wissenschaft schafft . . . Nun sprudle wieder, heiliger Quell Deutschen Lebens, stähle Deutschen Selbsterhaltungswillen und Deutsche Kraft, daß wir in dem Befreiungskampf gegen unsere Widersacher uns immer fester zusammenschließen und aus ihm herausschreiten als ein in unserer arteigenen Weltanschauung festverwurzeltes, uns selbst gehörendes, wehrhaftes und freies Volk. Ludendorff." - In Aufsätzen von General Erich Ludendorff, Dr. Mathilde Ludendorff (Facharzt für Psychiatrie) u.a. werden Themen behandelt wie z.B.: Blutverwurzeltes Weltbild, Schaffung einer Deutschgermanischen Führung, rassenfeindliche Lehre der Rom-Kirche, die christliche Religion blutfremd und rasseleugnend, Rasseerwachen des Deutschen Volkes gleichbedeutend mit Rückkehr zu arteigener Weltanschauung, Befreiung Deutschen Blutes von artfremder Lehre, Deutscher Gottglaube aus Deutschem Blut emporwachsend, Blutverwurzelte Deutsche Gotterkenntnis das unerschütterliche Fundament zur Gestaltung einer Deutschen Kultur und eines Deutschen Rechts, Deutsche Volksschöpfung, Materialistische Rassenlehren, Rom und Juda die Prediger der Weltheilslehren, Naturwissenschaftliche Rassenforschung, Keine Verquickung deutscher Sonnenwendfeiern mit Geburtstagen jüdischer Menschen!, Vertarnung des schädlichen Wirkens der Freimaurerei im Deutschen Volk, Deutsches Kunstschaffen, Moralisch verwesende Völker, 20 Jahre Vernichtungskrieg gegen Deutschland, Die Sinnerfüllung des Weltkrieges: deutsche Volksschöpfung, Die Feinde Deutscher Freiheit: Rom und Juda und ihre okkulten Werkzeuge, Macht des Rasseerbgutes, Freimaurerverrat im deutschen Heer 1914, Der völlig okkulte General v.Moltke, Christliche Grausamkeit an deutschen Frauen, Das heilige Amt der Frau und Mutter, Zum Geburtstag des Feldherrn, Die deutsche Frau in Volk und Staat, Unser Hochziel: durchgeis [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Old Papermaking in China and Japan

      Tall folio. Chillicothe: Mountain House Press, 1932. Tall folio, 71pp. with 15 specimens of paper made from bamboo, mulberry, china grass and mitsuma, 3 specimens of bark, and numerous color and black and white illustrations. Three quarter buckram and decorated paper boards, printed paper label to upper board, occasional light foxing and offsetting from specimens, light wear and toning to boards, else fine in original slipcase. One of 200 numbered copies signed by Dard Hunter. A monumental history of the early centuries of Eastern papermaking, unprecedented and impossible to reproduce. Hunter wrote: ???It is hoped that the pictures and the comprehensive captions will serve to show the actual process of papermaking in the Orient in years gone by, the design being to enlighten by the use of illustrations and by actual specimens of paper rather than by extended comment.??? ???The paper specimens, dating from the 14th through 18th centuries, are from China, Japan, Persia, and Tibet; the oldest were removed from block-printed books or scrolls. Each specimen is identified as to paper composition bamboo, mulberry, mitsumata. One is a leaf from from a gold-ruled 17th c. Persian manuscript on paper made entirely from China grass. The large Chinese characters and symbols were engraved by Lankes. Of the 200 copies printed, 50 were destroyed by fire.??? (The Veatchs) Hunter???s work is of pivotal importance in the history of American book making. Immersed in the Arts and Crafts movement at Elbert Hubbard???s Roycroft company, Hunter went on to found the first handmade paper mill in America and to create arguably the world???s first ???one man??? books: books he printed on paper he had made with a typeface he had designed, cut, and cast himself. In Chillicothe, Ohio, he founded Mountain House Press and for the next 46 years dedicated himself to the study of papermaking, travelling around the world for his research and authoring 20 books on the subject.

        The Odyssey of Homer

      n.p.: Printed in England,, 1932. Quarto. Original black full morocco by W.H. Smith, gilt lettered spine, top edges gilt, untrimmed. With the slipcase. 26 woodcut roundels printed in gold and black. Slipcase split at one joint and used but an excellent copy. First and limited edition of Lawrence's translation, 530 copies were printed. Presentation copy from Lawrence to his friend and dentist Warwick James, inscribed on the front free endpaper: "Warwick James from Shaw. 'a ridiculous mouse' 1932". Lawrence adopted the name Shaw when he joined the Royal Tank Corps in early March 1923. The expression "a ridiculous mouse" is an allusion to Horace's Ars Poetica (I, 139): "the mountains will labour and bring to birth a ridiculous mouse"; presumably a comment on the effort of translation, which he did find irksome, and his perhaps deflated hopes in doing justice to Homer. Although on a more mundane level Lawrence may be ridiculing his own reluctance to visit the dentist. William Warwick James (1874-1965), Senior Dental Surgeon at the Middlesex Hospital, first met Lawrence in 1922 in his capacity as a dentist. "During and after the first world war he was a member of the maxillo-facial unit at the 3rd London General Hospital, Wandsworth, and it was in recognition of his skill in the repair of gunshot wounds of the face and jaws that he was appointed OBE. His contributions to this special field were recorded in a book he wrote in collaboration with B. W. Fickling which was published in 1940" (Royal College of Surgeons). He contributed an article on Lawrence and music to T. E. Lawrence by His Friends (1937). "Inspired by reading Seven Pillars of Wisdom, Bruce Rogers persuaded Lawrence to undertake a new translation of The Odyssey. Begun in 1928 and published in 1932, the translation was undertaken during Lawrence's free time while serving in the ranks. It was published in a beautiful edition... by Emery Walker, Wilfred Merton and Bruce Rogers" (O'Brien). Joseph Blumenthal described it as "among the most beautiful books ever produced" (Art of the Printed Book: 1455-1955). A fine association copy.

        The All-Embracing Doctor Franklin

      Privately Printed [Fred Anthoensen, The Southworth Press], Philadelphia 1932 - Hardcover. Number 60 of 198 copies. An Association Copy, inscribed by Rosenbach on the free endpaper: "a.c.R. Carter with the regards and season's greetings of A.S. W. Rosenbach Dec. 1/32."

He writes: "Dear Mr. Carter: I have read with great interest your article on "The All-Embracing Doctor Franklin" and wish to express my appreciation of it. There is little news here. Things are not getting any better in the book business - although it is a great time to buy it is a poor one to sell. If I hear of any news I shall take pleasure in writing you. I always consider you one of my oldest and dearest friends in England and I am looking forward to seeing you the next time I am there. With kindest regards, believe me to be Very sincerely, A.S.W. Rosenbach." A.S.W. Rosenbach (1876-1956) was a pre-eminent American collector, scholar, and bookseller. He amassed an astonishing collection of rarities which are still held at Rosenbach Library in Philadelphia.
