This highbrow weekly appeared until 1933 in Berlin, first under the editorship of Stefan Grossmann and then under that of Schwarzschild himself.the Neue Tage-Buch became under Schwarzschild's guideance far and away the best of all German emigre publications" (Hans-Albert Walter, 1966) As one of the more important anti-fascist periodicals.

        Johanna und Esther. Eine Chronik ländlicher Ereignisse.

      Zsolnay, Berlin, Wien, Leipzig 1933 - 582 S., 4 Blatt. Orig.-Leinenband. Mit eigenhändiger, persönlicher Widmung des Autors für den österreichischen Schriftsteller Hermann Broch: "Hermann Broch, dem lieben Freunde, dem verehrten Kameraden, dieses Buch als Zeichen eines Schrittes / nicht Fortschrittes! / auf gemeinsamem Wege! Frank Thiess , Berlin, April 1933." Broch bedankte sich in seinem Brief an Thieß vom 23.5.1933: "Ich weiß noch nicht, über was ich mich mehr gefreut habe, über Ihr Buch als solches oder über die Widmung, deren Herzlichkeit mir gerade heute beinahe ein Trost ist, denn in der Isolation, in die wir immer weiter geraten, ist das Gefühl der geistigen Zusammengehörigkeit wirklich das einzig Positive, das geblieben ist, eine geistige Zusammengehörigkeit, die sich mir beim Lesen von 'Johanna und Esther' immer lebhafter dokumentierte." Das Widmungsexemplar blieb vermutlich bei Brochs Emigration in Bad Aussee zurück, möglicherweise im Haushalt des mit Thieß und Broch bekannten Psychiaters Adolf A. Friedländer. Der Einband etwas stockfleckig, sonst gut erhaltenes Exemplar mit nur leichten Gebrauchsspuren. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Five Million in Cash

      London: Jarrolds, 1933. Very Good/Good. A very unusual copy of the 1933 1st UK edition of this, O.B. King's (Tiffany Thayer's) only published mystery. Not only is this copy INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR on the front free-endpaper BUT IT ALSO APPEARS TO BE A PRE-PUBLICATION COPY, WITH A "SAMPLE COPY--NOT FOR SALE" LABEL PASTED-ON JUST ABOVE O.B. KING'S INSCRIPTION. Solid and VG (very light soiling to the panels, light bumping at the upper tip) in a Good only dustjacket that --sadly-- is missing the upper 50-60% of the rear panel. That portion has been crudely torn off but the spine and front panel (with its wonderful Douglas Moir illustration) are intact and relatively bright and clean. 12mo, 287 pgs.

      London: Hutchinson & Co., []. 1933 - Lithographed chart, mounted on original linen and folding into original chestnut colour faux-leather slipcase bearing the title in gilt (Good, map and slipcase slightly soiled, some creasing and mild staining to chart in upper-left and upper-right quadrants), cm (inches). An amazing large format chart depicting the genetic lines of the leading Racing Greyhounds in Britain, from the mid-18th Century until the 1930s. This fascinating chart, the result of painstaking research, employs an inter-linked series of stem charts to depict the genetic lines of the most famous British Racing Greyhounds, from the mid 18th Century (on the left side) over to the 1930s (on the left side). It goes from the old breeds of nobleman and gentry that established the modern sport, up to the sensational racers of the Art Deco age, as noted: "This chart covers a period of nearly 200 years, and shows connection (line of descent) between Lord Orford, Major Topham, Col. Thornton, Mr. Mundy and Lord Rivers’ Greyhounds and Waterloo Cup, Plate and Purse winners and some important modern dogs and Stud dogs and matrons of the breed." The chart was separately issued, but was also meant to compliment Edward Cecil Ash’s The Book of the Greyhound (London, 1933). Ash was then Britain’s foremost author on canine subjects, although greyhounds, of various kinds, were his passion. References: OCLC: 43509153.

        42nd Street

      New York: Grosset & Dunlap. Very Good. [1933] (c.1932). PhotoPlay Edition. Hardcover. NOISBN . (no dust jacket) [ex-rental library book but minimally marked as such (a couple of faint stamps of "Butler Block Pharmacy, Lansing, Mich." on front pastedown and verso of ffep, plus a couple of handwritten numbers); a solid book, moderately worn and lightly bumped at several corners, spine cloth faded (author/title in red, still readable), spine slightly turned]. (B&W photographic endpapers) Photoplay Edition (tie-in) for the 1933 Warner Bros. film adaptation, which in turn was adapted into the hit 1980 Broadway show of the same name. The book is illustrated not in the usual fashion of photoplay editions (with stills bound into the text), but in this case by an array of stills on the endpapers -- a total of twelve different scenes (six in the front of the book and six in the back). Although it might seem at first glance as though the novel and the movie cover pretty much the same narrative trajectory -- the blurb in the front of the book describes it as "the story of a musical show from the time of casting to the opening night" -- in fact the book is a good deal rougher than the film in its depiction of the seamier side of showbiz. Aptly described by online critic Scott Miller as "a wild, outrageous, and very adult, pulp potboiler [with] lots of casual sex, lots of drinking, lots of adultery, lots of lies," it's considerably more realistic and less romanticized than the movie, with its melodramatic excess ("You're going out a youngster, but you've got to come back a star!"), informed as it certainly was by the author's own youthful experiences as a vaudeville and nightclub dancer. (It's also worth noting that in the novel, the stage director Julian Marsh and the juvenile lead Billy Lawler (played in the film by Warner Baxter and Dick Powell, respectively) are lovers -- a relationship that was obviously "unsuitable" for the screen, even though the full force of the Motion Picture Production Code wouldn't be brought to bear on Hollywood filmmakers until over a year after this film's release.) Ropes followed this book, his first, with two similarly-themed novels ("Stage Mother," 1933, and "Go Into Your Dance," 1934), before settling into a career as a Hollywood screenwriter of B-movies, often with a musical angle or element (e.g. SWING IN THE SADDLE, SONG OF ARIZONA, MELODY RANCH, etc.). A very scarce book, in any edition. .

      1933. [in dust jacket] Garden City NY: Doubleday, Doran & Company, 1933. Original rust-red cloth pictorially decorated in black, with dust jacket. First American Edition of one of Graham Greene's better-known novels, a thriller first published the year before in the U.K. as STAMBOUL TRAIN. Per the dust jacket: "On the Orient Express steaming from Ostend toward the Golden Horn, ride five people linked by the sole accident of their imprisonment on the train... All plunge into a life that is strangely altered by these few hours spent together speeding through the dark. Hunger, terror, death, romance ride with them."~The American volume has a vivid binding, showing the train steaming south on the spine and then curving east onto the front cover; it is in FINE condition. The dust jacket, with scenes shown in "photography by Lazarnick Studio," is very good-plus (very minor edge-wear and soil, but scarcely anything missing except that the front turn-in is price-clipped).

        The Autogiro and How to Fly It.

      London: Sir Isaac Pitman and Sons, 1933. First Edition. Octavo, pp. xiii, 82, 24 of adverts. In publisher's blue cloth with gilt titles to spine and upper board. Numerous illustrations; both photographic and line drawings. With a foreword by Juan de la Cierva, the Spanish engineer who built autogiros in the UK in conjunction with Avro. After service with the Royal Flying Corps, and later with the Royal Air Force, Brie took employment with the Cierva Autogiro Company as a test pilot and demonstrator, showing the capabilities of the the Autogiro to the public and trade figures. In 1933 he was convicted of "low and dangerous flying" in an autogiro over the Kingston Bypass road, and in 1935 he became the first pilot to land and take off in a rotorcraft from a ship at sea. Some dustiness to the top edge, light spotting to the edges. Cloth shows some slight rubbing to extremities with the gilt to the spine slightly rubbed and dulled, small white mark to bottom of spine. Some bumping to the corner and to the head cap. A very good copy of a devilishly scarce title.
