        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).

        [Photo Albums]: Nazi Officer Training. Three Volumes

      Germany: , 1932-1938. Germany. 1932-1938. Three albums. 1. Oblong quarto measuring 10" x 12.5" with paper boards; 2. string-tied oblong quarto measuring 8.5" x 12.5" tan cloth over paper boards; 3. small quarto measuring 9.5" x 8" textured tan and blue cloth. Together they contain 412 sepia-toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1.5" x 1.75" and 4.5" x 7", some with captions in German. Very good or better albums with some rubbing with near fine photographs.A collection of photographs contained in three albums of a German Wehrmacht soldier, referred to only as Conrad, beginning in 1932, during the voluntary years of the army before Hitler enforced conscription. The photos show a combination of leisure activities, including sailing, hiking, and going to the orchestra, as well as army training. The first album is the most heavily captioned of the three and begins with photos of the orchestra while Conrad was attending the 1932 Schutz festival, a celebration of the music of German composer, Heinrich Schutz. Following these photos are images of men hiking and skiing a summit in either Germany or Austria. These images show the men posing with ropes and walking sticks, seemingly experienced climbers.Conrad was also an avid sailor and is seen throughout the albums with friends boating in the North Sea. One section of photos shows the smiling German on a trip in May of 1932. They spent time on the beach and taking hikes. One group of photos shows Conrad and a young woman jumping off the docks and swimming. Other photos show rural Germany and Austria including various farms, with a woman tending to pigs and riding her motorcycle on a dirt road.By the fall of 1932 Conrad is seen participating in military training exercises. The men, shown on horseback practicing jumps and maneuvers, are smiling and happy in what appear to be officer uniforms. The Nazi party was gaining momentum and would soon take over German politics completely and these soldiers were seemingly early proponents of the new regime. He included pictorial postcards of early photos of Der Fuhrer in his albums. One photo shows a car of high ranking Nazi officers with swastika armbands driving past a crowd giving the Nazi salute. The albums continue to show army training along with the soldier's quarters and uniformed men. They are seen sitting in trenches, posing in fields, smoking cigarettes, and marching. There are numerous photos of officers, one of whom is saluting while riding a bicycle, as well as groups of men training and marching along the German countryside, participating in target practice, marching in water, and running across fields. Conrad's fellow soldiers also had a company puppy which is seen in the arms of several officers, as well as in his cage.An extensive collection of photographs detailing the early days of Hitler's army and the carefree life of a German officer outside of his training. .

        A Young Man About to Commit Suicide

      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.

        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."

        The King of the Golden River. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham.

      - London: Harrap, 1932. 8vo. 48pp. With 4 color plates and 15 black and white illustrations. Original full limp vellum, titles and decoration to upper board gilt, top edge gilt, housed in a paper slipcase with printed label. A fine copy. Limited to 570 numbered copies signed by Rackham. Rackham's critical reputation waxes and wanes over the decades like that of many, perhaps most, artists, but the undying appeal of his book illustrations for generation after generation of wide-eyed children remains constant. His Alice and Peter Pan are immortal, his ghosts and goblins inimitable, his trees and landscapes uniquely imaginative in ways that people of any age can respond to. His art utterly defines an era of children's book illustration in the way that Cruikshank and Greenaway did in their eras or Sendak did in ours. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        [Photo Albums]: Nazi Officer Training. Three Volumes

      Germany. 1932-1938. Three albums. 1. Oblong quarto measuring 10" x 12.5" with paper boards; 2. string-tied oblong quarto measuring 8.5" x 12.5" tan cloth over paper boards; 3. small quarto measuring 9.5" x 8" textured tan and blue cloth. Together they contain 412 sepia-toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1.5" x 1.75" and 4.5" x 7", some with captions in German. Very good or better albums with some rubbing with near fine photographs.A collection of photographs contained in three albums of a German Wehrmacht soldier, referred to only as Conrad, beginning in 1932, during the voluntary years of the army before Hitler enforced conscription. The photos show a combination of leisure activities, including sailing, hiking, and going to the orchestra, as well as army training. The first album is the most heavily captioned of the three and begins with photos of the orchestra while Conrad was attending the 1932 Schutz festival, a celebration of the music of German composer, Heinrich Schutz. Following these photos are images of men hiking and skiing a summit in either Germany or Austria. These images show the men posing with ropes and walking sticks, seemingly experienced climbers.Conrad was also an avid sailor and is seen throughout the albums with friends boating in the North Sea. One section of photos shows the smiling German on a trip in May of 1932. They spent time on the beach and taking hikes. One group of photos shows Conrad and a young woman jumping off the docks and swimming. Other photos show rural Germany and Austria including various farms, with a woman tending to pigs and riding her motorcycle on a dirt road.By the fall of 1932 Conrad is seen participating in military training exercises. The men, shown on horseback practicing jumps and maneuvers, are smiling and happy in what appear to be officer uniforms. The Nazi party was gaining momentum and would soon take over German politics completely and these soldiers were seemingly early proponents of the new regime. He included pictorial postcards of early photos of Der Fuhrer in his albums. One photo shows a car of high ranking Nazi officers with swastika armbands driving past a crowd giving the Nazi salute. The albums continue to show army training along with the soldier's quarters and uniformed men. They are seen sitting in trenches, posing in fields, smoking cigarettes, and marching. There are numerous photos of officers, one of whom is saluting while riding a bicycle, as well as groups of men training and marching along the German countryside, participating in target practice, marching in water, and running across fields. Conrad's fellow soldiers also had a company puppy which is seen in the arms of several officers, as well as in his cage.An extensive collection of photographs detailing the early days of Hitler's army and the carefree life of a German officer outside of his training. .
