        Das widerspenstige Fleisch. Sowie: Tönerne Füße. Zusammen 2 Bände.

      Rowohlt 1932-1933, Berlin - 367; 308 S., 2 Blatt. Orig.-Broschur mit farbig illustriertem Schutzumschlag von Rudolf Schlichter bzw. Orig.-Leinenband mit bedruckter Werbe-Bauchbinde. Der Maler und Illustrator Rudolf Schlichter (1890-1955) legt hier die ersten beiden seiner auf 3 Bände geplanten Autobiographie vor: "Dieses Buch ist die Liquidation der dargestellten Epoche und trägt somit in sich die Aufhebung seiner privaten Existenz" (Vorbemerkung). Neben dem genau geschilderten Elend seiner Kindheit und Ausbildung trug vor allem Schlichters Bericht über seine fetischistische sexuelle Veranlagung kurz nach Erscheinen des zweiten Bandes zum Verbot der Bände durch die Nationalsozialisten bei. Der geplante dritte Band ist nicht mehr erschienen. Der Umschlag des ersten Bandes zeigt als kolorierte Zeichnung bemerkenswerterweise bereits eine Vorform jener Allgorie, die 1937 zu Schlichters berühmtestem Gemälde, "Blinde Macht", werden sollte. Der Umschlag am Gelenk der vorderen Klappe zu ca. 2/3 eingerissen, mit kleinen Randläsuren sowie zwei papierhinterlegten Einrissen. Der Leinenband stärker fingerfleckig, im ganzen handelt es sich jedoch um ein ordentliches Exemplar dieser bedeutenden Autobiographie. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Gold and Monetary Stabilization. Lectures on the Harris Foundation 1932. (Signed by John Henry Williams: 'One of the most important expressions of monetary and fiscal thought by economists in the depression.')

      Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1932. - FIRST EDITION. xi, 174 pp. Original cloth. Very Good, in dust jacket. Presentation copy, inscribed by John Henry Williams. Lectures: International aspects of the gold standard, by Jacob Viner. Money and the business cycle, by Gottfried Haberler. Federal reserve policy in depression, by H.P. Willis. The future of the gold standard, by L.D. Edie. Monetary stability and the gold standard, by J.H. Williams. 'One of the most important expressions of monetary and fiscal thought by economists in the depression was a conference of some of the nation’s leading economists in January, 1932, at the University of Chicago, under the aegis of the Institute on Gold and Monetary Stabilization. The Chicago meeting received wide notice, as well it might. Twenty-four economists there recommended the following to President Hoover: (1) what later became the Glass-Steagall Act; (2) a systematic campaign of FRB open-market purchases of securities; (3) RFC aid to banks with ineligible assets; (4) maintaining a public-works program; (5) Federal unemployment relief; and (6) lowering tariffs. With the exception of the last plank, President Hoover, as we have seen, adopted every one of these inflationary and interventionist proposals. Part of the responsibility for the Hoover program and its aggravation of the depression must therefore rest on these eminent advisers who steered him so incorrectly. Unfortunately, these distinguished economists did not heed the words of two of the lecturers at the conference, who most emphatically did not sign the statement. One was Professor H. Parker Willis, who again proved prophetic in attacking the Federal Reserve’s past and projected future inflationary policy during the depression. Willis pointed out that the cheap money policy in late 1929 and in 1931 caused a dangerous outflow of gold, and led therefore to loss of confidence in the dollar and to bank failures, which accentuated the loss of confidence. . . . The other notable contribution to the conference was delivered by Professor Gottfried von Haberler, at that time a follower of Ludwig von Mises. Haberler here presented for perhaps the first time in America the Misesian theory of the business cycle. He pointed out that the traditional monetary theory of the trade cycle emphasized stability of the price level, with an attack on falling prices as the remedy for depression. Such were the doctrines of Fisher, Cassel, and Hawtrey. . . . The ‘quacks . . . preaching inflationary measures,’ charged Haberler, disregard the real dislocation of productive resources. Further inflation would make things worse by creating a greater artificial disproportion of consumers’ and producers’ goods. The worst step would be ‘a one-sided strengthening of the purchasing power of the consumer, because it was precisely this disproportional increase of demand for consumers’ goods which precipitated the crisis.’ . . . Speaking at the same conference, Professor John H. Williams admitted that, for the 1920s: ‘It can be argued that but for credit expansion prices would have fallen, and that they should have done so. It was on such grounds that the Austrian economists predicted the depression.’ . . . Williams did not sign the general statement either' (Murray N. Rothbard, America’s Great Depression, 5th ed., 2005). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        PRINT AND POETRY PAMPHLETS

      1932. Paperback. Very Good. [LITTLE MAGAZINE] FUJITA Erosu, author, artist. PRINT AND POETRY PAMPHLETS. Sho^wa 7 to 12 [1932-37] 51 assorted issues of this little series of poetry and print pamphlets by Fujita published in To^kyo^ by one Tomita Hikaru under the publishing house name of SHIN MYO^JO^. It would seem that Fujita was the only contributor. The front and rear covers are "kikai-zuri" machine printed woodcuts, the contents have some intext illustrations. The sizes range from 19.9 x 14.7 cm to 22 x 15 cm. There are 2 issues from 1932, 6 from 1933, 11 from 1934, 11 from 1935, 11 from 1936, and 10 from 1937. Brooding, gloomy aesthetic. Very interesting example of the sort of creative effort even amateurs were capable of in the 30s and how conversant they were with trends in world art. The pamphlets are in Japanese, but often subtitled in German.. As one might expect, this ephemeral production is vanishingly rare. I can find no trace of it in any institution. In very good condition throughout.

        Psychiana

      Moscow, ID: n.p., 1932. FIRST EDITION. Approximately 235 pp. on 8 ½ x 11 inch paper, single spaced typed throughout, in a folder. Twenty "lessons" (each 10-12 pages, more or less), plus 2 duplicates, plus a Psychiana Inc. Certificate of Approval issued to John W. McCormick, who has underlined (and crossed out) parts of many of the lessons, as well as annotated portions thereof. The complete twenty-course program for a "New Thought Religion," one of spiritual enlightenment promising health, wealth and happiness through an alternative belief system, with the underlying premise being a rejection of all the major organized religions and a general embrace of modern science. Robinson endeavors to reason with tight logic, propounding a faith in the "Law of the Universe" that if subscribed to, would relieve many mundane cares and concerns. Each of the lessons contain a message of self-empowerment, positive thinking, self-affirmation and motivational cheerleading. Of interest, the two duplicate lessons (numbers 13 and 19) have printed cover sheets reading "Psychiana (The new psychological religion) advanced course Number One," and also showing The Company's printed logo as well as the logo reflecting membership in the NRA (???? - weird). Psychiana was a New Thought denomination created in 1928 by Frank Bruce Robinson (1886-1948), with headquarters in Moscow, Idaho. It began and largely remained a mail-order enterprise, recruiting people through advertising in popular magazines and through direct mail solicitations. The first advertisement for Psychiana, which Robinson himself penned and took around to local publishers in Spokane, Washington in 1929, featured a picture of Robinson with the headline, "I TALKED WITH GOD (yes I did, actually and literally)." Those who expressed an interest in Robinson's promises of health, wealth, and happiness by responding to one of his ads were offered a series of bi-weekly lessons by mail on a subscription plan. Robinson had his own printing presses and started a small publishing company, which offered many of his own books on various spiritual themes, as well as his memoir, The Strange Autobiography of Frank B. Robinson. Thematically, Robinson's ideas, as expressed in Psychiana, grew out of the metaphysical tradition and can be classified under the New Thought umbrella. Robinson adopted concepts such as affirmations, positive thinking, self-help and mental healing into Psychiana's lessons and emphasized health and material prosperity as possible rewards for dedicated and hardworking Psychiana students. Robinson said that the name he chose, "Psychiana," came to him in a dream. He unabashedly referred to himself as a prophet, and envisioned his movement as becoming a worldwide, revolutionary spiritual force; at the same time, he made little effort to establish any kind of organizational structure beyond his headquarters office in Idaho, preferring to keep the operation strictly on a correspondence level. Psychiana burgeoned during the Great Depression, but Robinson offended many of his contemporaries, not only by the "businesslike" nature of Psychiana, but also with his harsh criticisms of conventional Christianity. Upon Robinson's death in 1948, Psychiana's operations were taken over by his wife, Pearl Robinson, and son, Alfred Robinson; however, the denomination's success was so closely associated with Robinson and his personal style that it failed to survive for more than a few years after his demise. Robinson was born in England, the eldest of four boys. He had a tough childhood, being beaten for the smallest of infractions by his father, who was a Reverend. His mother, however, encouraged him to cultivate his spirituality. The mother died when Robinson was only eight and the father remarried and the situation got worse. He moved to Canada and ultimately to Oregon, where he had his "vision of the future," seeing himself at the head of a new religion. Without any doubt Robinson has been a pioneer in using media techniques (radio, speaking crusades and the development of correspondence courses) that brought him to build in less than 10 years the country's eight-largest religion and the world's largest mail order religion with an estimated 2 million subscription-based followers.

        Hélène Rubissow. (Exhibition catalog)

      éditions de la Librairie, Paris 1932 - Quarto (28 × 22.5 cm). Original pictorial wrappers over blind paper wraps, in protective calque; 9, [2] pp., [13] leaves of plates, of which four in color. Signed and inscribed to Louis Hautec?ur, the last curator of the Musée du Luxembourg and a crucial figure in French art history and curatorship. Spine splitting at extremities; calque lightly chipped at edges; internally very good. Scarce catalog showcasing the work of Hélène Rubissow (1897-1988), or Elena Rubisova, a Russian-born artist who was trained in St. Petersburg and Berlin before settling in Paris. In 1918, she took part in the exhibition of the Mir iskusstva (World of Art) group, which included such artists as Dobuzhinsky, Iakovlev, and Chukhaev. Largely decorative and ornamental, her work represents an idiosyncratic mixture of Russian, Asian, and African influences. The present catalog preceded a solo exhibition of Rubisova's work in Paris. She also wrote and published in the Paris emigre newspaper "Poslednie novosti." After 1945, she resettled in the United States, where she taught and published widely. With a short introductory essay by Maximilien Gauthier. Inscribed by Rubisova to Louis Hautec?ur, the last curator of the Musée du Luxembourg. No. 288 of 300 copies printed. Signed and inscribed by Rubisova to Louis Hautec?ur (1884-1973), the last curator of the Musée du Luxembourg and a crucial figure in French art history and curatorship (somewhat ironically, given that he was known for his conservative, classicist taste rather than a penchant for Rubisova's brand of modernist art). KVK, OCLC show nine copies, of which four in France and five in North America, at Arizona, Hofstra, SMU Dallas, UNC Chapel Hill, and Yale. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

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 (nà e 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]

      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).

Most images are captioned both on the verso and on the album page. Also included in the album are three postcards, one of them depicting a Chinese subject, andÑsomewhat incongruouslyÑtwo of them depicting Greek subjects.An engaging and poignant album documenting the interactions of a French missionary and the Chinese people.CONDITION: Album covers and spine good, photos generally good, a few loose, others nearly so, a few creased at corners and/or edges, most photos trimmed at corners to fit in photo mounts.

        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.
