        1932 Walker Cup Golf Program - The Country Club Brookline, signed by Bobby Jones

      Brookline, MA 1932 - Difficult to find program from the seventh Walker Cup matches held at the Country Club in Brookline, Mass, 1932. 16 pages. The program is signed by Bobby Jones, Francis Ouimet (the U.S. captain) and Cyril Tolley. Ouimet was a popular and historic choice as captain of the U.S. team since his epic win at the U.S. Open was at Brookline in 1913. In early Walker Cups, including this one, the captains played in the matches. Ouimet participated in 12 Walker Cups as either a player or a captain. There are 21 signatures in the program in total including from the British team: John T. Bookless, John DeForest, Rex Hartley, John Burke, Eric Fiddian, E. McRuvie, Leonard Crawley, Lister Hartley and J. A. Stout. Signatures from the US team: George Dunlap, Jess Sweetser, Billy Howell, Don Moe, George Voigt, Harrison Johnston, Charles Seaver, Jack Westland and Gus Moreland. Charles Seaver was the father of the baseball great Tom Seaver. Cyril Tolley was a leading amateur player in the 1920s. He won the British Amateur in 1920 at Muirfield and in 1929 at Royal St. Georges. He also won the French Open in 1924 and 1928. He was defeated by Bobby Jones on the 37th hole of the 1930 British Amateur, the first leg of Jones' Grand Slam that year. He would go on to become captain of the R & A. Leonard Crawley was obviously a proficient golfer to have been on the British team, but he is better known as a cricket player. The U.S. beat Great Britain & Ireland 8 to 1 in the matches, thereby winning the first seven Walker Cups. The 7th Walker Cup was notable for two additional reasons. First, there was a total eclipse of the sun in Boston of the sun during the practice round on August 31st, and Leonard Crowley hit a shot so far off line that it hit the Walker Cup trophy, which was out on display, and put a dent in it. with a 4-iron (the club has been preserved for prosperity). He was ironically the only British play to win a match! A significant and difficult to find program, greatly enhanced by the rare signature on it, including Bobby Jones. The program also contains pictures of the secretary of the R & A and the president of the USGA and articles about the Walker Cup by Bobby Jones, Francis Ouimet and Bernard Darwin. We specialize in golf books. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Free Born: An Unpublishable Novel

      NY: Urquhart Press, 1932. Paperback. Very good. First Edition. 237pp, [1] ad. Crease and small tear to bottom right corner of front wrap, foxed overall with some light insect damage to the front free endpaper. Signed and dated January 1, 1932 by Nearing at the bottom of the Publisher's note. From the publisher's note: " The thesis of the book is important. No More vital issue confronts the American people than the widespread use of the black workers to break the back of the labor movement, and no aspect of the labor movement is more encouraging than the growing consciousness of labor solidarity, irrespective of race or color." "...subtitled an 'unpublishable novel' because presumably no commercial publisher would accept it, has the distinction of being, as the scholar Hugh Gloster states, 'the first revolutionary novel of Negro life,' and is further at least noteworthy for containing the most ghastly lynch scene in American literature". Rideout page 194.

        Arbet, Shpiel, Gezang: Kinder Lieder. [Work, play, sing: Children's Rhymes].

      Moscow Emes 1932 - Small 4to, 22 x 17.5 cm; 17, [3], 20 pp. Original illustrated wrappers; small marginal tears to wrappers, clean pages, browned. Text in Yiddish and Yiddish transliteration to Latin characters for the rhymes. A very good copy. A book of children's songs in Yiddish, published by the Moscow Jewish publishing house Emes ("Truth" in Yiddish). Includes music note sheets with Yiddish rhymes written along the notes in transliteration. The Jewish publishing house was active from early 1920s till 1948 when it was liquidated by the Soviet authorities and both its manager and chief editor were arrested. The mere existence of this publishing house was part of the weird policy of "forced Yiddishalisation" aimed at Soviet Jews, which started in the early 1920s and came to its end in 1938, when all the Jewish schools that were opened in the 1920s were closed down. The publishing house survived for another decade, which included its moving to Samara during WWII (1941-1944) and back to Moscow again. During the time of its existence Emes was the biggest publisher of Yiddish children's books in USSR. Rebecca Boyarskaya (1893-1967) was a Jewish educator, author and compositor, active in USSR in the Yiddishkeit field. (Yiddishkeit literally means "Jewishness"). Born in Ukraine she studied music and education, lived in Moscow since 1922 and worked as a music teacher. She authored a number of children's song books in Yiddish and Russian.

        eigentl. Hans Bötticher, Dichter und Kabarettist (1883 - 1934): Eigenhändige Widmung mit U. (7 Zeilen) in seinem Buch: "Die Flasche und mit ihr auf Reisen"

      Berlin, Rowohlt, 1932 - Kl.-8°. 178 (+1) S. Erstausgabe (WG 33), von Joachim Ringelnatz auf dem Vorsatz einem engen Münchner Freund gewidmet: "Mein lieber Fritzl / zum 13. Dezember 32 / sei herzlich beglückwünscht / auf gutes Wiedersehen / im Mai / Dein / Berliner Ringel." . - // - Der "Berliner" Ringelnatz war 1930 endgültig von München nach Berlin gezogen, denn er erhoffte sich dort größere berufliche Möglichkeiten. Reminiszenz an die Münchner Zeit ist die Deckelillustration (Flasche mit Theatermasken) von Olaf Gulbransson, der ebenfalls viele Beziehungen zu Berliner Kulturszene hatte. - Nach seinem Theaterstück "Die Flasche (Eine Seemannsballade)" in 3 Akten (Knickspur als Markierung des Endes) berichtet Ringelnatz ab S. 85 im "Tagebuch von 1932" über die Entstehung des Dramas "auf Hiddensee bei Asta Nielsen und für Asta Nielsen". Der erste weibliche Filmstar in der Geschichte des Kinos verbrachte mit ihrer Familie in ihrem Haus auf Hiddensee oft mehrere Sommermonate und hatte dort Freunde, wie Joachim Ringelnatz mit Frau, Heinrich George und Gerhart Hauptmann zu Gast. Vor allem geht es aber darum, was Ringelnatz als Hauptdarsteller in seinem eigenen Stück auf Gastspielreise durch Deutschland und die Schweiz mit einem Ensemble des Stadttheaters Nordhausen erlebte. - Die Ringelnatz-Tournee, die in Prag (Treffen mit Max Brod) endete, führte von Zürich nach München. Dort gastierte die Truppe mit "Die Flasche" in den Kammerspielen und Ringelnatz hatte seine letzten Auftritte im Kabarett "Simplicissimus". Der Münchner Freund, dem diese Widmung, wohl zum Geburtstag, gilt, kümmert sich treusorgend um Ringelnatz und pflegt ihn "mit heißer Milch und Honig". Er wird mehrfach im "München" Kapitel (S. 137-145) erwähnt. Dieses beginnt mit "Als mich amicus Fritzl umarmt hatte" und endet mit: "Großer Abschied von lieben Freunden. Als am 20. Juni [1932] unser Zug nach Nürnberg auslief, winkte Fritzl uns noch lange nach." - Es war dies der letzte Besuch in München. Das in der Widmung angekündigte "gute Wiedersehen" kam nicht mehr zustande. 1933 erteilen die Nationalsozialisten Ringelnatz Auftrittsverbote in Hamburg und München. - Deckel des empfindlichen Einbands mit Einriss unten (s. Abb.) und mit geringen Gebrauchsspuren. Buchblock im ersten Teil unten minimal gestaucht, innen sonst alles sehr gut. Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 550 OKart. mit Deckelillustr. von Olaf Gulbransson. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Er horchte auch nicht hin. Seine Gedanken waren bei den schnurgeraden Reihen jener Faschistenhunde, die dort vor dem Bahnhof angetreten waren. Stramme Jungens zwar das gewesen. Er hätte sie sich gerne näher angeschaut, doch er hatte sich nicht getraut. Ein eigenartiges Gefühl hatte er gehabt, als er mit diesen Leuten hier an jenen Reihen vorbeiging, dasselbe Gefühl, das ihn jetzt wieder überkam. Warum ließen es sich jene Jungens gefallen, daß man sie beschimpfte? Wie sie dagestanden hatten, wie die Pfähle . . . ließen sich anrotzen und regten sich nicht . . .

        Roundabout Way.

      Putnam, London and New York. 1932 - First edition. Octavo. pp [vi], 270. Original blue cloth lettered in gilt. MacNeice met the wonderfully named Giovanna Marie Thérèse Babette Ezra at Oxford, and the whirlwind love affair left him, as he telegraphed his rector father, "in gaol for drunkenness and engaged to marry a Jewess". The engagement was met with horror on both sides of the family and took place in the Oxford Registry Office with neither set of parents present. The novel is a not terribly successful attempt to celebrate "an idyll of domestic felicity" that would come to a crashing halt when, five years into their marriage and with a year-old son, his wife ran off with their American lodger. Covers a little marked and bruised at spine. Small nick in cloth at head of spine. Edges a little spotted. Very good. No dustwrapper. Rare. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
