        Ms. Brief mit eigenh. Grußzeile und U.

      Prinkipo, 17. XII. 1932.. 1 S. Folio.. An den Schriftsteller Emil Ludwig (1881-1948): "Die Verzögerung in der Beantwortung Ihres liebenswürdigen Briefes erklärt sich durch die Tatsache meiner Reise: Ihr Brief musste mir nämlich folgen, und die demokratische Polizei hat mich aus jedem Lande schneller befördert, als es die Post mit ihren Briefen zu tun pflegt. Der von Ihnen zugeschickte Ausschnitt aus Ihrem Buche über Stalin etc. war mir bereits bekannt, wie auch ein paar andere Ausschnitte. Meinem Berufe gemäss habe ich selbstverständlich meine Aufmerksamkeit mehr dem Politischen als dem Psychologischen zugewandt. Schon vor meiner Reise nach Dänemark habe ich einen polemischen Artikel begonnen, den zu Ende zu führen ich eben im Begriffe bin. Was ich Ihnen in diesem Artikel, wenn ich so sagen darf, vorwerfe, ist, dass Sie die Eindrücke und die Ihnen mitgeteilten Informationen nicht an Hand unwiderlegbarer Dokumente überprüft haben. Lenins Testament zum Beispiel, das in Ihrer Darstellung eine so grosse Rolle spielt, ist längst in allen Sprachen und mehrere Male veröffentlicht worden. Radeks Informationen sind leider beiweitem nicht immer stichhaltig [...]". - Emil Ludwig "Unterredung" mit Stalin war im Jahr zuvor erschienen. - Mit kleinen Randläsuren und vier hinterlegten Löchern im Text.

        Die Morgenlandfahrt.

      Berlin, S. Fischer Verlag, 1932.. 8°. 112 Seiten. Originaler Ganzleinenband mit Originalumschlag. Sehr guter Zustand mit nur ganz geringen Gebrauchsspuren. Mit handschriftlicher Widmung von Hermann Hesse an den Schriftsteller Alfred Mombert: "Gruss für Alfred Mombert von H.Hesse - VII.41." Momberts mystisch-visionäre Werke wurden u. a. von Martin Buber und Richard Dehmel hoch geschätzt. 1919 wurde Mombert Mitglied des Kunst- und Kulturrates für Baden, 1928 wurde er in die Preußische Akademie der Künste aufgenommen. 1933 schlossen ihn die Nazis, da er Jude war, aus der Akademie aus und verboten 1934 seine Werke. Mombert blieb in Deutschland und pflegte einen regen Briefwechsel mit seinen Freunden. (Im) Oktober 1940 wurde er im Zuge der Wagner-Bürckel-Aktion ins Lager Camp de Gurs in Südfrankreich deportiert, wo er bis April 1941 interniert war. Freunde erreichten, dass der schwer Erkrankte Oktober 1941 in die Schweiz ausreisen durfte, wo er am 8. April 1942 an den gesundheitlichen Folgen des Lageraufenthalts verstarb. Momberts Werke stehen in der Tradition Friedrich Hölderlins und Friedrich Nietzsches. Seine Lyrik hat Ähnlichkeiten mit der Stefan Georges und Rainer Maria Rilkes (Wikipedia).. Octavo, 117pp. First edition of this allegorical work, drawing on Hesse's knowledge of oriental cultures, and a landmark in his appropriation of the East, an element of his work that would develop in significance up to the creation of his masterwork, The Glass-bead Game. Faint off-setting to endpapers; small stain to front cover. An excellent copy in a near fine dust jacket, a trifle worn at the head of spine. Later ownership signature. Briefly inscribed by Hesse in July 1941 to the german writer Alfred Mombert who suffered in a concentration camp and only shortly before his death due to an intervention of his friends was released to Switzerland.

Johns, it is called The Pictorial Flying Course, was published by John Hamilton, in 1932 - the same year as the first Biggles book: The Camels Are Coming.___The incredibly scarce dust jacket bears an illustration of a bi-plane to the front which has just taken off from the aerodrome. The dust jacket is in Poor condition though mostly complete and present the jacket has a separation, losses and marks/age toning, an old tape repair to the back - however, since this dust jacket is rarely encountered it is highly desirable in any condition.___The original green boards have an illustration to the front of a aeroplane with black lettering to the front and spine. The boards are in Very Good condition being extremely clean and very well preserved with a very feint small stain to the back board which could be missed if not looked for.___There are 100 numbered pages which are packed with diagrams and photographs throughout which gives the reader (in quite some detail) the basic knowledge of how an aircraft works and flies. The pages are in Near Fine condition with brown toning to the front free endpaper and rear endpaper, otherwise an exceptionally clean example.___The Foreword reads (in part): "The object of this book is two fold: to enable the novice to converse intelligently on the subject of aviation, and to prepare the prospective student for the actual instruction in the air."___The Flying Pictorial Course is an exceptional book by W.E. Johns which no Biggles collection should be without.

        Thoughts and Adventures

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1932. London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1932. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very good. A collection of 23 engaging essays by Churchill on an incredibly wide variety of subjects published in 1932. From the original front flap blurb: "Whether he is dealing with personal reminiscences, or telling us his views on any subject under the sun, Mr. Churchill stamps the page with his own vivid personality." The khaki cloth of this edition proved notoriously prone to scuffing, wear, and soiling. Here is a first edition, first printing in very good+ condition. An unusually clean copy. This example shows only light scuffing and wear, far less than typical. The front and rear covers are clean with square corners, bright gilt, and minor shelf wear confined to the bottom edge. The spine is just a little darkened, with not much scuffing, bright gilt, and only minor wear at the spine ends. The contents are crisp, clean, bright, and tight with no spotting and no inscriptions. The book appears unread. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A95.1.a, Woods/ICS A39(aa.1), Langworth p.156.

        Dielma, w ALS and original manuscript poem laid in

      London: Duckworth, 1932 London: Duckworth, 1932. First edition, in jacket. ALS by the author, with an original poem to the recipient, laid in [see story, below]. Octavo, 88 pp. Bright blue cloth, gilt spine lettering. Spartan cream jacket (now toned). Near fine; paste foxing at endpapers, no othernotable flaws. Jacket is better than good, age-toned as noted and with a few smallish chips. See scans. This is the earlier Harry Clifton, namesake of the current Irish poet by that name. This one (the earlier Harry Clifton) became the inspiration for W.B. Yeats' famous 1938 poem, "Lapis Lazuli (For Harry Clifton)" after he (Clifton) gave Yeats a Lapis Lazuli carving. Clifton was particularly adroit at poems honoring - and marveling at - women, a talent to which the contents of "Dielma" will attest. There's more. Laid in is a letter from Clifton, on stationery of the Hotel St. Francis in San Francisco, to a Miss Patricia T___, with an original manuscript poem to her at its end. The letter begins: "Dear Patricia - I am sending you a poem, of you, to you. Of course, do not imagine that I know whom you are like; you may resemble Aphrohodite of the Golden Girdle, or Queen Neferte (sic) really..." he goes on to say, among other things, that he's writing to England to have a copy of Lord Dunsany's "The Queen of Elfland's Daughter" (sic; actual title was "The King of Elfland's Daughter") sent to her. The Poem is entitled, "To Patricia T___", and goes on to compare her, for her natural affinity for riding, golf, and tennis, to the Goddess Diana: "I imagined muscles moulding to running grace..." While there is no evidence here to so indicate, it's possible the copy of Dielma in which the letter and poem are laid was Patricia's, which, if the case, would make this a presentation copy as well. Perhaps an association copy, to boot; Patricia T's surname is that of a noted San Francisco family, and since the letter was written on Hotel St. Francis stationery in that city, she may have been a member of that clan. No direct evidence here to establish that conclusively, however. The letter is dated "All Souls Day, 1932", which would have been November 2nd or November 3rd of that year. Take your pick of reasons to collect this one. l-44n

        Thoughts and Adventures

      London: Thornton Butterworth, Ltd., 1932. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Very good minus/Good. Here is a jacketed first edition, first printing of Churchill's collection of 23 engaging essays on an incredibly wide variety of subjects, published in 1932. It has been called "The broadest range of Churchill's thought between two hard covers" and reflects the two qualities that so characterize Churchill's life - a remarkable breadth of both mind and life experience. From the original front flap blurb: "Whether he is dealing with personal reminiscences, or telling us his views on any subject under the sun, Mr. Churchill stamps the page with his own vivid personality." The khaki cloth of this edition is notoriously prone to scuffing, wear, and soiling. Moreover, the contents proved highly susceptible to spotting. This copy is very good minus, with some pardonable defects, but with a binding notably free of the typical scuffing. The khaki cloth binding is clean and square, with sharp corners, bright gilt, nicely rounded spine, and virtually none of the usual scuffing and discoloration. There is trivial shelf wear to the bottom edge, a one inch abrasion to the cloth at the upper rear corner, a few small dents at the edges, and some barely perceptible rippling to the binding cloth on the rear cover. The contents remain bright with no previous ownership marks. We note differential toning to the endpapers consistent with the dust jacket flaps, confirming that this copy has spent its life jacketed. There is a faint damp scent at the pastedowns. Very light spotting is confined to the pastedowns and top edge, which is also modestly dust soiled. The first printing dust jacket is unusually clean and unclipped, with fairly modest loss limited to the spine ends and corners. However, in the course of applying a new dust jacket protector we noted that the dust jacket is nearly split into five pieces. The flap folds are nearly completely split, with discreet tape reinforcement to the verso applied by a previous owner. The spine is split vertically near the center with a previous verso tape repair only at the very bottom to align a fragment just below the publisher's name. That said, the vertical spine split in particular is so clean that we initially took it for just a crease. All three splits virtually disappear beneath the new, archival quality, removable dust jacket protector we have applied and the visual appearance is far better than the "good" grade we give the jacket in view of the splits.

Some toning, two horizontal fold lines to letter, which has a full signature. Items housed in handsome recent cloth solander case with calf lettering piece. * Friendly letter to Alice Strong, who was compiling an anthology of quotations.

It appears that Strong never completed (or published) her anthology. This letter was part of the collection of James S. Copley, the newspaper chief and bibliophile.

        The International Style: Architecture Since 1922

      New York: W.W. Norton, 1932. First edition of this seminal work. Octavo, original cloth with the dust jacket. Inscribed by Johnson, "For Jim with thanks for his help Philip Johnson". In near fine condition in the very rare dust jacket with light chipping. This is the first jacketed copy that we have encountered. Housed in a custom quarter morocco clamshell box.Initially produced as the catalog to accompany a controversial and groundbreaking 1932 Museum of Modern Art show of the then new architecture emerging in Europe and America, The International Style quickly became the definitive statement of the principles underlying the work of such giants as Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier, Walter Gropius, and other pioneers. It might be said that Henry-Russell Hitchcock and Philip Johnson discovered as well as defined "the International Style," and over the decades their book has served as a frame for growth in the architectural profession.
