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.

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...

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.

A very interesting section of the book includes children's life stories. The last pages of the book contain notes and lyrics of Dzerzhinsky's commune's march. By the beginning of the 1920s there were about 6 million homeless children in Russia as a result of the World War I and Russian Civil War. In 1921 Felix Dzerzhinsky (1877-1926) announced the idea of a working commune for children that will reduce the level of homelessness. The first commune appeared near Poltava that year. In 1927 it moved to Khar'kov commune named after Felix Dzerzhinsky and contained 60 children. During the first year a new commune organized agricultural production to feed themselves and next year it was decided to produce goods that are not available in the Soviet market. This production allowed the communards to master complex professions. As a result the Dzerzhinsky's commune built the first Soviet factory of electric drills and a little later they created the production of cameras. In 1930s they published several guides to these products. Worldcat locates no copies. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        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.

        The Odyssey (Bruce Rogers copy)

      Bruce Rogers, Wilfred Merton & Emery Walker, London 1932 - A rare opportunity to see a fine copy of this glorious edition of T.E. Lawrence's translation of the Odyssey, This is Bruce Rogers copy with his bookplate and a presentation inscription signed by Bruce Rogers Bound in full black leather that is in a fine unmarked condition and contained in the very good original black slipcase, itself protected in a worn box. Printed on grey paper, watermarked with a Greek galley and printed with aromatic ink that still holds the spicy aroma. The title page and each chapter heading has a roundel of gold leaf printed with a Greek vase design, the printing of these took seven separate impressions and is a wonderful feature of the book. In Joseph Blumenthal's "Bruce Rogers. A Life in Letters," Blumenthal describes this volume; "I believe the Bruce Rogers Odyssey is indisputably amongst the most beautiful books ever produced. It is difficult to describe a work of genius . In the Odyssey without tricks or accessory decoration, with a classic austerity akin to the timeless proportions of the Parthenon, with only type and paper and ink, with consummate skill, Rogers created a masterpiece". Here indeed is a fine copy of this master work, without doubt one of the most handsome volumes in the Lawrence cannon. As an added bonus the Lawrence translation is still most readable, so the volume offered combines printing excellence with a practical and readable text. Limited to 530 copies. An exceptional copy of this fine landmark volume. Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" Tall [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        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).

        [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.
