        Photographic Archive of Civilian Conservation Corps Camps in California and the Mountain West

      ca. 1933-1936. A charming assemblage of images of Civilian Conservation Corps camp life, catalogued as received, all apparently documenting the career of one CCC youth, identified only as "Jack," from ca. 1933 to 1936. Locales identified in the photographs include Zion National Park; Hornbrook, California; and several identified simply as "Oregon." In addition to portraits of the aforementioned "Jack," subjects include other camp residents and officers, views of camp buildings and camp activities, and scenic views (though nearly every photograph has a human subject). Nearly all are candid, unposed snapshots, many portraying camp residents engaged in work or leisure activities - building bridges, felling trees, playing music, boxing or just showing off their bodies - in all providing a wonderfully disarming glimpse of daily life among the civilian conscripts of the Great Depression. Archive of 50 original black and white photographic prints, most 3" x 4-1/2" (ca 7cm x 11.5cm), some slightly larger or smaller; three printed on post-card stock (3-1/2" x 5-1/2"). Image condition generally Very Good or better; light bumps to corners, several with corners clipped (not affecting image areas); eight images captioned or inscribed in ink on verso in the same unidentified hand. Captioned images mostly dated 1933, three later (1934 & 1936).

        The Games of the Xth Olympiad - Los Angeles 1932. Official Report

      Los Angeles: Xth Olympiade Committee of the Games of Los Angeles, USA, 1932, 1933. Profusely illustrated from photographs in color and black and white. 814, [1] pp. 1 vols. Thick 4to. In publisher's binding of full orange cloth, with frieze on upper cover at bottom and top stamped in black. Small repairs at head and foot of spine, else almost fine. Tipped in presentation card; bookplate of James Copley. Profusely illustrated from photographs in color and black and white. 814, [1] pp. 1 vols. Thick 4to. The Olympics of the Great Depression. Sumptuously produced official report of the 1932 Olympic games. Held in the midst of a world-wide depression, many nations and athletes couldn't pay for the trip to Los Angeles, and as a result, in 1932 there were fewer than half the number of participating nations than in the 1928 games. Among the Olympic high spots were the gold medals of Afro-American sprinter Eddie Tolan in the 100 and 200 meter dashes; the legendary Babe Didrikson, who won gold medals in javelin and hurdles (with a silver in the high jump); and the mysterious Stanislawa Walasiewicz (later Stella Walsh) of Poland, who won the women's 100 meter dash, was later inducted into the U.S. Track and Field Hall of Fame in 1975, and who was later discovered to be (mostly) male. She, along with the host of other participants, is pictured frequently in this remarkable and beautifully photographed record of one of the more unusual Olympics of modern times.

Mit Aufnahmen der Crew, der Landschaft (mit tollen Aufnahmen des grönländischen Eismeeres!) und der technischen Ausstattung, also keine abphotographierten Filmszenen!

      1933 - A small archive of 25 postcards sent in 1933 to Missouri State Senator Carl J. Henry, urging him to support the "local option" on the issue of prohibition of alcohol. Also included is a political postcard, urging a vote for Henry as state representative on the Democratic ticket. The 3 1/4 by 5 1/2 inch postcards are uniformly printed with unique handwritten and typed messages from constituents in Clinton, Missouri. All are dated December 4, 1933, the eve of the repeal of the 18th Amendment. "As one of your constituents living in a county that voted 'dry' by a strong majority, I humbly request that you give such counties the justice that rightfully belongs to them," one Mrs. Brownell wrote. In 1887, Missouri's legislature adopted a local option law and within 19 months, 61 of the state's 114 counties voted dry. Another 35 voted dry in the years that followed. Despite the adoption of the 21st Amendment, Missouri law still allowed the local option. However, the state soon thereafter adopted liquor control laws that superseded local law. Today, Missouri has no dry jurisdictions and it has become known as one of the least restrictive states when it comes to alcohol regulation. Some light toning to the postcards; else very good or better.

        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. .

This important change in the making of picture books took hold, flourished, and came to fruition years later during the Golden Age of children's book publishing" (Silvey, 679).

        The Codex Perez: An ancient Mayan Hieroglyphic book

      Glendale: Arthur H Clark Co, 1933 10+[1 ad] pages with fold out facsimile of the codex at the back. Royal octavo (9 1/2" x 6 1/4") bound in original wrappers. Limited to 250 copies.The Codex Peresianus, or Codex Mexicanus, no. ii better known as the Codex Perez, a rare Mayan volume and reproduced here. It was discovered in 1859 Leon de Rosny, among a mass of old papers in the national library of France. It consists of eleven leaves, twenty-two pages, each 9 inces long and 5 1/4 inches wide. The writing is very much defaced, but was evidently of a highly artistic character, probably the most so of any manuscript known. Its origin is a complete mystery. The papers in which it was wrapped bore the name "Perez" in a Spanish hand of the seventeenth century, and hence the name "Peresianus" was given it. By order of the French minister of public instruction, ten photographic copies of this Codex, without reduction, were prepared for the use of scholars. None of them was placed on sale. There have been published but a few reproductions of the Codex Perez. The present reproduction is an absolutely exact photographic facsimile of the original. The only alterations that have been made are that the margins, entirely blank, have be reduced in size, and certain figures, clear in the original but too faded to reproduce photographically, have been strengthened with dotted lines in order that they be not lost in the reproduction. The figures are exactly the size of the original, and the format of the original has been followed identically, even to the accordion-pleat fold which permits the book to be read across in sequence, as was the Mayan custom. The original is on a fibrous paper made from the leaves of the maguey plant and coated with a whitish, durable plaster.Condition:Some pencil underlining, previous owner's name to front wrapper else a very good copy.

        Economic Foundations of Fascism

      , 1933. 1933. First Edition . EINZIG, Paul. The Economic Foundations of Fascism. London: Macmillan, 1933. Octavo, original blue cloth, original dust jacket. $1600.First edition of this important economic survey of early Italian Fascism, in original dust jacket.It would be an understatement to say that the publication of The Economic Foundations of Fascism had a mixed reception. While Foreign Affairs called it ""a well-written survey by a prolific publicist"" (Foreign Affairs), Einzig was promptly labeled ""pro-fascist"" or merely a fascist by many of his contemporaries. Austrian economist Arthur W. Marget wrote in the Journal of Political Economy, ""This book is a thoroughly discreditable piece of journalistic hackwork, evidencing on almost every page a degree of naivete or of bias that is truly shocking."" In the case of Einzig, everyone really was a critic, most of all his fellow economists. Whatever Einzig's personal beliefs, he has been largely vindicated with regard to the quality of his writing. He remains both a well-known financial journalist and an author who published more than 50 books on financial topics as well as a number of scholarly articles. Einzig did some of his best research during the long period leading up to the Second World War, reporting on Nazi Germany's exploitative exchange rate policies toward the East as well as eventually breaking the scandal of the Swiss National Bank's purchase of looted gold from the Reichsbank in 1943. He was, in short, neither Nazi nor Italian Fascist. This work is a valuable contemporary source that attempts to explain the inner workings of Fascism and what made it economy successful in the early years. Book very nearly fine, dust jacket near-fine with only light wear and toning to extremities. A handsome copy.

        The Comanche Barrier to the South Plains Settlement: A century and a half of savage resistance to the advancing white Frontier

      Arthur H Clark Co, Glendale 1933 - 424+[4 ad] pages with frontispiece, 4 maps, 8 illustrations, bibliography and index. Royal octavo (9 1/2" x 6 1/2") bound in blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine. First edition. In the annals of the great plains and prairie county south of the Arkansas river, the achievements of the pioneer loom large; for in this land the frontier era must be measured not in years or decades but in centuries. The Spaniards, who approached the country from the south and west, scarcely entered it at all, and it took, half a century of seasoning before the Anglo-Americas could subdue. it. Powerful forces delayed the advanced of the Europeans into this region, and not the least of these was the Comanche Indians. They guarded well the vast, treeless land that was their home and, what is more, they made life unsafe for those white men who dared to settle near the periphery of the Comancheria. Before Daniel Boone had entered Kentucky they were harassing the Spaniards at San Antonio, and as late as 1874 they took scalps within ten or fifteen miles of that old Spanish town. The purpose of this book is to give an account of the conflict of these superb savage horsemen with the more advanced peoples who finally succeeded in occupying their country. The narrative in part has to do with Spain's achievements and failures in dealing with nomadic Indians; it reveals the harsh tactics of the Anglo-American frontiersmen as they grappled with an Indian problem more puzzling than any they had ever known before; it brings out the mistakes and misapplied efforts of governments controlled by eastern men and struggling with problems peculiar to the west; and through it all runs the story of a nomadic culture debauched by vices of its more advanced neighbors, hurled about by currents of westward expansion, and finally confined and compelled to become a part of the civilization it hated and resisted to the last. Condition: Some light scuffing to boards, corners bumped, light rubbing to spine ends else a very good copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
