        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland [and] Through The Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There.

      8vo. 2 volumes bound in original red and blue leather respectively, boards and spines elaborately and extravagantly blocked in gilt, all edges gilt, preserved in original blue and red cloth slipcases, Wonderland with the remains of the original glassine dustwrapper; pp. [viii], v-xi + [v], 3-182 + [iii]; [vii], viii-xii + [x], [3] + 211 + [vi]; with engraved illustrations throughout after Tenniel's original woodblocks by Bruno Rollitz (in Wonderland) and by Frederic Warde (in Looking-Glass); both copies in lovely bright condition with slim wear (3mm) to head and tail of rather friable spine leather, and some abrasion to top edges and corner tips, of volume one and minor rubbing to tail of volume two, both volumes internally immaculate, the slipcase to Wonderland with some small edge wear, browning and staining, the slipcase to Looking-Glass in very good condition indeed; scarce as a pair signed by Alice. First editions thus. Both volumes are limited to only 1500 numbered copies, published for the members of the Limited Editions Club of New York. Wonderland is signed at the rear in ink by Frederic Warde, who was responsible for the typography and the binding design for this edition. Importantly both volumes are also signed in ink by Carroll's Alice, Alice Hargreaves (née Liddell). Only about 500 copies of the first title and about 1,000 of the second were signed by her, a few years before her death. Alice refused to sign other editions of this famous book in her lifetime.

I övrigt är alla volymerna i nära toppskick. /// Sigurd Emanuel Erixon, född 26 mars 1888 i Söderköping, död 18 februari 1968 och Sigurd Wallin, född 1882 i Floda socken i Södermanland, död 31 januari 1968, var båda svenska etnologer och museimän. / Sigurd Erixon inledde sin långa forskarbana vid Nordiska museet år 1912 med de så kallade byundersökningarna. Hans huvudsakliga teoretiska utgångspunkt, diffusionismen, kom att prägla stora delar av hans verksamhet. Han inledde därmed den etnologiska karteringen av Sverige i syfte att finna kulturområden, kulturgränser och spridningsvägar. Arbetet resulterade i det stora kartverket Atlas över svensk folkkultur som kom ut 1957. I boken Svenskt folkliv år 1938 ville Erixon peka mot på en ny och en mer samhällsinriktad folklivsforskning. Han ville därmed vidga intresset mot andra samhällsklasser. Ett av Erixons huvudverk är Skultuna bruks historia i två band från 1935. Genom sin stora arbetsinsats och gedigna kunnande fick han en viktig roll i det europeiska etnologiska samarbetet. Erixon var den svenska etnologins både store och starke ledare under vad som skulle kunna kallas dess uppbyggnadsperiod, 1900-talets första hälft. En hel generation av forskare har uppfattat honom som lärare och vägröjare. Efter studier vid läroverket i Norrköping blev Erixon e.o. amanuens vid Nordiska museet 1914, och intendent 1924. År 1925 blev han fil.lic. i Uppsala och fil. hedersdoktor 1927. / Sigurd Wallin blev 1916 ordinarie amanuens vid Nordiska museet och 1924 intendent för högreståndsavdelningen. Han blev hedersdoktor vid Uppsala universitet 1932. Tillsammans med Sigurd Erixon redigerade han samlingsverket Svenska kulturbilder. - Källa: Wikipedia

        For Sinners Only

      Hodder & Stoughton, London 1932 - July, 1932 unstated 1st printing with no re-printings listed on the copyright page. Bluish gray cloth covered boards, solidly bound. Original dust jacket is worn with the bottom half of the spine missing. This title was considered "The Bible" of the Oxford Group, and is listed on Alcoholics Anonymous co-founder Dr. Bob's "required reading" list. The book describes the authors pilgrimage as a prodigal into the Oxford Group, only to become a convert under the Groups leader, Frank Buchman. In July 1933, the publisher (H&S) reported (after 14 printings and 1 full year)," that it is not generally realized that For Sinners Only, with a sale of nearly 120,000 copies in the English edition alone, has reached a circulation far in advance of any other full-length book on any subject published during the last year." This copy was signed upon the "Aquitania", a Cunard line ocean liner following a meeting on the ship. "To Mrs. Dugan, a souvenir of a meeting on "the Aquitania". May it console and help. I dare you to try "the life". It works. A.J. Russell", followed by his address and a date of Aug., 25/32. Rarely found 1st, especially inscribed. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Obscure Destinies

      8vo. New York: Knopf, 1932. 8vo, (x), 230pp. Printed on Japan vellum. Quarter vellum, green boards with gilt title in box on upper cover, yellow card slipcase, fine. Limited to 260 copies signed by the author, one of Cather's most renowned books. "The short story "Old Mrs. Harris" comes from Obscure Destinies, a collection of three short stories by Willa Cather... This short story provides a look at the relationships among three generations, all living under the same roof. Though considered fiction, students may find this story interesting because prototypes for the three generations were members of Cather's immediate family. Willa Cather herself is represented by the character Vickie." (Bettie Kort, Willa Cather Foundation).

        The Art of Edward Weston

      New York: [Will A. Kistler Company] for E. Weyhe, 1932. Folio. Foreword by Charles Sheeler, Appreciation by Lincoln Steffens, Prophecy by Arthur Miller, Estimate by Jean Charlot. 12pp. text, 39 photographic plates. Original printed paper-backed black boards. A fine presentation copy, inscribed by Weston to Lewis Milestone on the epigraph leaf facing the title. Milestone (1890-1980) is renowned for his direction of 'Two Arabian Knights' (1927) and 'All Quiet on the Western Front' (1930) -- both of which received Academy Awards for Best Director. Milestone apparently re-gifted the book, as the half-title bears his inscription "To the Roberts, Milly." A fine association, linking Weston (who early in his career worked in Hollywood doing stills for films) to the celebrated director Lewis Milestone. Light toning and wear to binding, some pale foxing as often, lacks original slicpase but with modern cloth slipcase.

        Ror Wolf Werke. Im Zustand vergrößerter Ruhe. Die Gedichte

      473 (6) Seiten 8, fadengeheftet, Original dunkelblauer Kalbs-Ganz-Ledereinband mit goldgerägtem Titel auf dem Buchrücken im bezogenen Schuber. mit transparentem Schutzumschlag und Lesebändchen, ungelesen und wie neu, eines von zwanzig numerierten Exemplaren der Vorzugsausgabe, hier die Nummer 12. Ror Wolf ursprünglich: Richard Georg Wolf, Pseudonym: Raoul Tranchirer (* 29. Juni 1932 in Saalfeld/Saale) ist ein bekannter deutscher Schriftsteller und Künstler. oben scheint der mond, gerade jetzt / hat sich waldmann an den tisch gesetzt / und ißt eine durchgestrichne brühe. / schnee fällt leicht und weich und ohne mühe.Es ist ein unaufgeregter Ton, der in den Gedichten von Ror Wolf vorherrscht, obwohl sie von seltsamen Begebenheiten, Unglücksfällen und erotischen Wirrnissen handeln. Körperteile ragen in Räume hinein, Pistolen werden gezückt, und Reisende versickern lautlos im Unbekannten. Die Leichtigkeit der Sprache und ihre artistisch anmutende Komik sind jedoch nur zwei Bestandteile dieser Welt, hinter deren Schilderung stets der skeptische Blick des Melancholikers sichtbar bleibt.Die Sammlung umfasst die beiden Bände AUSSICHTEN AUF NEUE ERLEBNISSE (1996) und PFEIFERS REISEN (2007) mitsamt den darin enthaltenen Einzelpublikationen MEIN FAMILI (geschrieben 1959-1965) und HANS WALDMANNS ABENTEUER in allen vier Folgen (geschrieben 1965-2006). Mit unveröffentlichten Gedichten aus den frühen Jahren liegt damit erstmals die gesamte Lyrik von Ror Wolf in einem Band vor.

        The Moslem Pilgrimage.

      Alexandria: Whitehead Morris Limited,, 1932. An authentic account of the journey from Egypt to the holy land of Islam, and a detailed description of Mecca and Medina and all the religious ceremonies performed there by the pilgrims from all parts of the Mohammedan world. Small octavo (180 x 122 mm). Original blue quarter cloth, light blue paper boards, half-tone reproduction of Ibrahim Rifat Pasha's photograph of the Egyptian mahmal mounted to front board within printed titles as issued. 37 half-tone plates from photographs by Ibrahim Rifat Pasha, Batanuni Bey, and Sadiq Bey (i. e. "Mohammed Sadek Pasha"). Boards lightly bowed and irregularly sunned, mild bumping and wear to tips, image to front board rubbed, foxing to edges, prelims and occasionally to the text, the plates bright and fresh, a good copy. First and only edition of this uncommon account of the Hajj, collecting some of the earliest and most important photographs of Mecca and Medina. A decidedly scarce title on the market, with two copies only traced at auction; Copac traces three copies in British and Irish institutional libraries (British Library, London Library and Glasgow), OCLC adds fourteen world-wide. "Socrates Spiro (1868-?) was an Egyptian of Syrian and Greek descent. He was educated at the American Mission College in Cairo. His first post was as a private secretary of the undersecretary of state for finance, and later he became director of Egyptian ports and lighthouses … In 1907 Spiro went to work in Geneva as a lecturer of Arabic at the university there. He returned to Egypt in 1912, where he first worked for the Egyptian Gazette and then was appointed Arabic editor of the Egyptian Mail … In 1932, he published a book titled The Moslem Pilgrimage. After that, all traces of Socrates Spiro seem to vanish, which is strange for a man who held such high public functions" (Bassioney, Al-Arabiyya, Volume 47, p. 3). Chapters cover the Egyptian mahmal (official caravan), the Cairo-Mecca route, the Suez-Jeddah route, Mecca, Medina, and the Haifa-Medina railway. "My first authority is the late Mohammed Sadek Pasha, who was an officer on the staff of the Egyptian Army and visited the sacred towns more than once and embodied all the information he obtained at first hand in a book now out of print [Mash'al al-Mahmal, 1881] … My second authority is Mohammed Labib Al-Batanuni Bey, who accompanied the ex-Khedive Abbas Pasha in 1909 to the Hedjaz, and subsequently published a record of this journey [al-Rihlah al-Hijaziyah, 1911]. My third authority is a number of newspapers articles relative [sic] to the officials who accompany the caravan, much information about the sacred towns, etc., and my fourth is that of men who made the journey … The illustrations … are principally drawn from the above two works, and from that of Ibrahim Rifat Pasha [Mir'at al-haramayn, 1924], the most complete on the subject" (Preface).

      New York: William Faro, Inc.,, 1932. Octavo. Original beige cloth, title label to spine. With the dust jacket. An excellent copy with the jacket only very slightly marked and rubbed. First edition, first printing, inscribed to publisher William J. McElwee Jr., "To Bill McElwee - who actually bought this book - not borrowed it! Anthony Gudaitis", on the front free endpaper. This is a superb copy of a scarce piece of American stream-of-consciousness modernism, in the very scare and strikingly designed dust jacket - the front flap of which advertises: "This is the most important confession of adolescence since the friends of Marie Bashkirtseff published her pitiable memoirs after her death. The difference is that Gudaitis belongs to a generation morbid with sex-exhuastion - and that our young man exercises a freedom of expression that was unthinkable even in the Paris of the "nineties." No one - young or old - can read this book without giving thought to a despair which pervades the young of our time." Gudaitis edited, under the pseudonym Anton Gud, a libertarian manifesto entitled Don't Vote Til You Read this (1952), and also penned a pastiche of Lady Chatterley's Lover (itself advertised on the rear panel of the jacket) entitled Lady Chatterley's Husbands, published by Faro in 1931. William J. McElwee was the publisher at Ritten House, Philadelphia.

        Picture Map of China. 中國地圖

      New York. Friendship Press. 1932. Wall-sized pictorial map, 37 1/4 x 48 1/2 inches on sheet 38 1/4 x 49 3/4 inches (97.5 x 126 cm), originally folded, now archivally mounted on linen. Evidence of some minor chipping to folds, now minimsed. Color pencil additions to the map outlining two regions. A good example of the scarce 1932 pictorial map of China by Frank Randolph Southard published by Friendship Press, the publishing arm of the National Council of Churches in New York. The map was designed as a teaching tool in classrooms and in this vein the added color on the copy offered here delineates a section of northeast China and a large swath of western China. The map is on a scale of 1:16,000,000. The outside border of the map shows various Chinese symbols such as the yinyang, the wheel of law, the pearl, long life etc. The inner border shows scenes of life in China: at home, at work, at school, in the street. The map itself is quite schematic, showing elevation pictorially, rivers, major cities. Listed in WorldCat at only three libraries, the scarcity of this map is no doubt due to its size and its practical application. A handsome map with much interesting commentary on the Western view of China in the years before World War II.

First edition. "The most unusual and thought-provoking of Buchan's supernatural works is the novel THE GAP IN THE CURTAIN (1932), which deals with fate and free will. Building on Dunne's theory of serial time, Professor Moe works out a technique for visualizing the future -- in this case a newspaper of a year hence. The characters, who are types of our civilization, scramble about trying either to fulfill or to ward off what has been seen... a capable suspense story." - Sullivan, The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 62.

        Ausstellung. Gedichte.

      Verlag Marburger Flugblätter, Marburg 1932 - 64 S. Orig.-Broschur. Ernst Meister (1911-1979) ist noch immer der unbekannteste unter den bedeutenden deutschsprachigen Lyrikern des 20. Jahrhunderts. Als 21jähriger Student der Theologie und Philosophie veröffentlicht er diese Gedichte, die die Vossische Zeitung 1933 als "Kandinsky-Lyrik" bezeichnet. Das war zu diesem Zeitpunkt so wenig eine Empfehlung wie das Studium bei Karl Löwith, der 1933 Lehrverbot erhielt und bald emigrierte. Der bewunderte Klaus Mann bekam ein Exemplar, es gab 38 Subskribenten aus dem Freundeskreis und bis Anfang September 1933 hatten sich darüber hinaus noch ganze 11 der 434 gedruckten Exemplare verkauft. Ernst Meister erhielt dafür 43 Reichsmark Honorar, brach sein Studium ab, ging zurück in den väterlichen Betrieb nach Hagen, wurde Soldat und trat als Lyriker erst 1953 wieder an die Öffentlichkeit. Zu Beginn der dreißiger Jahre sandte der Verlag die Restauflage an den Autor, der sie vernichtete. Lediglich seine Frau behielt einige wenige Exemplare zurück, "die sich im Besitz der Familie und einiger Freunde erhalten haben. Antiquarisch ist der Band heute also ein Rarissimum" (aus dem Kommentar zur textkritischen Ausgabe sämtlicher Gedichte 2011). Der hintere Umschlagdeckel mit kleinen Fleckchen, sonst handelt es sich um ein gut erhaltenes Exemplar der ersten Buchveröffentlichung mit nur leichten Gebrauchsspuren. Selten.

Inscribed presentation copy to Sewall Wright signed by Timofeeff-Ressovsky. "Like Dobzhansky, Timofeeff-Ressovsky attended the Sixth International Congress of Genetics in Ithaca, New York, in 1932, heard Wright speak, and was greatly impressed. Indeed, as in Dobzhansky's case, Timofeeff-Ressovsky's conception of the evolutionary process thereafter bore the strong stamp of Wright's concenptions. Timofeeff-Ressovsky published three major papers on evolution in nature (Buzzati-Traverso, Jucci, and Timofeeff-Ressovsky 1938, Timofeeff-Ressovsky 1939, 1940). All three reflected Wright's ideas."
