        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]

        The Codex Perez: An ancient Mayan Hieroglyphic Book

      Arthur H Clark Co, Glendale 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. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Wind in the Willows

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1933 - Kenneth Grahame (1859-1932) was an English writer; this is probably his most famous novel, a classic of children literature. It concerns the escapades of four animal friends who live along a river in the English countryside - Toad, Mole, Rat, and Badger. This is a children's story that is as much for adults as children. It was originally published in 1908 and again in 1913. The sale item shows 1933 on the title page as well as the copyright page and is probably the first American edition of the third reissue. Blue cloth binding with gold lettering on spine and three gold cartoons on front board. Binding tight but slightly cocked, with bumping at top and bottom of spine plus a bit of sunning on the spine. Surprisingly there is no foxing anywhere. Bright yellow end pages with illustration of the Willows neighborhood. Only flaw is the dedication to the previous owner on front free end page. Unclipped dust jacket ($1.00) is sunned on spine, chipped at top and bottom of spine, and worn at all extremities but there are no tears. This volume is in very good shape for the age. 12 mo (6.75 to 7.75 inches). 312 pages. Now Brodart covered to prevent further deterioration. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [FIRST PERSONAL LENTULOV'S SHOW] Vystavka kartin A.V. Lentulova, organizovannaia k 25-letiiu hudozhestvennoi deiatel'nosti. 1908-1933 [i.e. The Exhibition of A.V. Lentulov's Paintings Organized for the 25th Anniversary of Work Activity. 1908-1933]

      Moscow: [Vsekokhudozhnik], 1933. 34 pp., 1 front., 14 ill. 18x13 cm. In original illustrated wrappers. Small tears of the wrappers. Otherwise a very good copy. Very rare. One of 1000 copies. The catalogue of the first personal exhibition of Aristarkh Lentulov (1882-1943), famous Russian avant-garde artist. It includes list of all 254 works from the exhibition (in chronological order), two short biographical notes about the artist and his work, 15 black and white reproductions not including 'Cracking' on the front cover. Exhibition included paintings and sketches of theatre costumes and set designs. From 1912 Lentulov became a major influence on Russian futurism and in particular cubo-Futurism. He was one of the co-founders of the famous avant-garde group 'Jack of Diamonds', and participated in its exhibitions between 1909 and 1916. This catalogue is a testament to the Lentulov's work during the 'Jack of Diamonds' period. Interesting that this exhibition happened in 1933 when Soviet directive for socialist realism already was in action and the beginning of the 1930s marked the end of Russian avant-garde. His late turn to realism and Soviet industrial subjects caused his exception and praises by Soviet critics as well as work with 'Jack of Diamonds' which some considered leftist (or at least they interpreted some of his works like that). Worldcat locates two copies in US libraries (The Frick Art Reference Library, Getty Research Institute).

        Unsere Führer im Lichte der Rassenfrage und Charakterologie. Eine rassenmäßige und charakterbiologische Beurteilung von Männern des Dritten Reiches. Mit polizeilicher und parteiamtlicher NSDAP-Genehmigung

      Leipzig, Verlag der Literaturwerke \"Minerva\" R.Max Lipold, 1933. Vollständige Ausgabe im original Verlagseinband (blaues Ganzleinen GLn / OLn / Ln im Format 14 x 22 cm) mit dekoriertem Deckeltitel in Goldprägung, Text: Fraktur. 169 Seiten, mit vielen ganzseitigen Fotoabbildungen auf Kunstdruckpapier (Porträt-Aufnahmen von führenden Nationalsozialisten) sowie einem Foto des Verfassers auf Seite 6. Druck: Hansa-Buchdruckerei Bormann & Co / Leipzig. - Das Buch ist gewidmet \"aus tiefer Geistverbundenheit allen schaffenden germanischen Artschwestern und Artbrüdern, die deutsch leben und streben\". - Aus dem Vorwort: \"Menschenkenntnis ist Macht. Keineswegs fußt die vorliegende Arbeit auf neuen wissenschaftlichen Grundsätzen. Seit dem 17.Jahrhundert bereits finden sich immer wieder Anläufe, Rassenkunde und Menschenkenntnis zu staatlich anerkannten Wissenschaften erheben. Aber die Gegner in Staatsstellen und an Schulen und Universitäten haben es verstanden, das Urwissen unserer Ahnen bis zu dieser Zeit zu unterdrücken. Von den Vorkämpfern für dieses Wissen seien erwähnt: Lavater, Dr.Gall, Dr.Spürzheimer, Prof.Combe, Carus, Hutter, Gerling und Peters. Diese deckt bereits die kühle Erde. Unter uns Lebenden weilen: Lanz von Liebensfels, Ißberner-Haldane, Georg Richter und Burger-Villingen. Lanz von Liebensfels gebührt ein besonderer Ruhmeskranz. Trotz stärkster Knebelung und erbitterter Verfolgung hat er sich voller Idealismus für die Rassenkunde eingesetzt und sie weithin verbreitet. Ißberner-Haldane und Georg Richter kämpfen heldenmütig für den Rassengedanken und lassen sich selbst durch den Verlust von Freundinnen und Freunden nicht beirren. Beide schufen und finanzierten völlig unabhängig voneinander je eine Rassenschule . . . Hinsichtlich der Literatur verweise ich auf die Angaben in meinem Werk \"Die urewige Weisheitssprache der Menschenformen\". Heil Deutschland! Der Verfasser. Bärenstein (Bez. Dresden), am 20. April 1933\". - Aus der Einleitung: \"Alle äußeren Formen, gleichviel ob Kopf, Hals, Hand, Gang, Sprache, Gebärde, Ausdruck, Schrift, entsprechen den inneren Kräfte des Menschen. Damit ist die Möglichkeit gegeben, an den Rassenmerkmalen die unterschiedlichen seelischen Anlagen zu erkennen. Rasse ist niemals mit Taufe oder Änderung der Nationalität zu verwischen. Sie besteht vielmehr immer weiter, weil die Rasse durch das unveränderte Blut bestimmt wird. An ihrer Hautfarbe kann man die vier Grund- und Hauptrassen erkennen. Weiße Hautfarbe: arisch-germanische Rasse, braune Hautfarbe: Mediterrane, gelbe Hautfarbe: Mongolen, schwarze Hautfarbe: afrikanische Stämme. Der Jude ist keine bestimmte reine Rasse, sondern eine Mischrasse aus allen vier Grundrassen unter deren Unterarten. Daraus erklärt sich sein unberechenbares, internationales Heimatgefühl. Seine Heimat ist jeweilig dort, wo ein gutes Auskommen findet. Darin unterscheidet er sich grundlegend von den germanischen Völkern, denn diese halten ihrer Heimat die unbedingte Treue. Das gleiche gilt für die schwarzen Völker und auch für die Mongolen. Wenn der Jude eine Rassengemeinschaft eingeht, so tut er das nur aus Not und Berechnung. Selten aber ist diese Gemeinschaft von langer Dauer. Denn infolge seines egoistischen und händlerischen Wesens macht er sich bei jedem Wirtsvolk bald dermaßen unbeliebt, daß er wieder vertrieben wird. Darum muss auch für das deutsche Volk aus Liebe zu seiner Rassenreinheit Rassenscheidung gefordert werden. Jede Rassenmischung ist Sünde!... Seit unserer Volkskanzler die Zügel in die Hand genommen hat, ist gottlob unter dem verjudeten medizinischen Berufsstand aufgeräumt worden. Mit einemal geht von dort eine Welle des Verständnisses aus . . .

The Labor and Socialist International was an international organization of socialist and labor parties, active from 1923 to 1940. It was established by merging the two rival groups Vienna International and Second International. On May 21, 1923, 620 delegates representing 41 socialist parties from 30 different countries convened in Hamburg, Germany, to help unify the two groups. The LSI remained a federation of fully independent and autonomous parties, with governance taking place via an elected Executive Committee. This special conference was held in August 1933 in urgent response to the rise of Fascism and Adolf Hitler, and the crumbling of the German Social Democratic Party. This was the fifth meeting of the LSI, preceded by four congresses, in 1923, 1925, 1928, and 1931.

Folio (10 by 13 inches), original printed paper self-wrappers, uncut; original glassine. $1800.Limited edition, with 19 mounted full-page plates (two double-page) and dozens of in-text reproductions of Steinlen's wonderful charcoal studies of cats, great cats, and other animals, number 72 of 500 copies on Velin d'Arches.Renowned painter, printmaker and illustrator Théophile Steinlen produced hundreds of illustrations throughout his career, often for magazines like Le Rire and Gil Blas illustré. ""It was his connection with Gil Blas illustré which made him famous. His more than 1000 designs for this weekly, printed in from two to four colors, offer a comprehensive survey of the teeming life of the cityÂ… He also showed himself to be a master of the poster, and after his first exhibition in 1894, both his lithographs and his etchings came to be sought after by collectorsÂ… Des chats [Some Cats], a folio of 1897, is a splendid tribute to the animals he loved best"" (Ray, The Art of the French Illustrated Book, 440). The present work finely reproduces for the first time a number of studies and drawings of cats (and other animals) that were found among Steinlen's papers after he died in 1923. From a total edition of 595 copies. Text in French. Wear and one small stain to fragile original glassine, rarely present. Book clean and fine. A lovely volume.

        THE STORY OF TEMPLE DRAKE - ORIGINAL LOBBY CARD

      [Los Angeles]: Paramount PIctures Distributing Corporation, 1933. Original studio-issued lobby card, offset printed on card stock, measuring 35.5cm x 28cm (14" x 11"). Discreet pinholes to corners, a few very faint stress creases to same, else bright, very Near Fine, and unrestored. Attractive lobby card from Stephen Roberts's 1933 pre-code crime drama, adapted from William Faulkner's 1931 novel Sanctuary. The story centers around Temple Drake, the daughter of a judge in a Southern city, who refuses to marry a steady, reliable lawyer and instead falls in with a group of bootleggers, resulting in rape and murder. This card illustrates the dramatic concluding scene of the film, where Temple confesses in court all that has happened to her, subsequently fainting into the arms of Mr. Steady, Reliable Lawyer, who carries her from the courtroom. Original ephemera from the film is uncommon, particularly well-preserved and in an unrestored state.

        Green Bough

      1933. First Edition . Signed. FAULKNER, William. A Green Bough. New York: Harrison Smith and Robert Haas, 1933. Octavo, original tan cloth, mounted cover illustrations, uncut and unopened. $3000.Signed limited first edition of FaulknerÂ’s second and last book of poetry, number 248 of 360 copies signed by him, of which only 350 copies were for sale, with two mounted cover illustrations and mounted frontispiece by Lynd Ward.""A Green Bough came out at the end of April [1933] without much fanfare. It was published as a favor to Faulkner by Hal Smith, with illustrations by Lynd Ward. The volume contained 44 poems, most of which were written very early in Faulkner's career and reflect his close reading of Eliot, Housman, Swinburne and Keats. One can hardly imagine that the author of these intensely literary poems is the same man who wrote Sanctuary or Light in August. This was Faulkner's farewell to poetry, and, as such, it warrants a glance. Poetry was the schoolhouse of Faulkner's fictionÂ… A Green Bough remains a fairly accomplished collection that demonstrates a firm grasp on the craft of poetry"" (Parini, 177). Twenty-nine of the 44 poems in this collection were previously unpublished and nearly all were revised prior to the publication of this work. No slipcase or dust jacket issued with this signed limited edition. Brodsky 147. Peterson A15.1a. Light offsetting to front endpapers. An about-fine copy.

Small slim octavo, original red cloth, original glassine wrapper. $1500.Limited first edition, number 55 of only 300 copies.This was the first appearance of this story, although it was published with some revisions later the same year in Winner Take Nothing. Hemingway “drew on his remembrances of Kansas City in 1917” in writing this, one of his darkest stories, which “consisted of a conversation between two young ambulance surgeons about the case of a boy who had tried to persuade one of the doctors to castrate him and then mutilated himself with a razor in order to get rid of an ‘awful lustÂ’ which he took to be a ‘sin against purity” (Baker 227). Hanneman A11a. Light wear to edges of glassine. Book near-fine, with only mild toning to extremities. A handsome copy.

Large, thick folio (11 by 15 inches), original gilt-lettered cream wrappers, uncut and partially unopened. $1500.Limited first edition, number 662 of 880 copies, of this erudite history of “the artifices that women employ in order to support and perfect their fragile beauty,” with fashion plates (12 in color), facsimiles and in-text illustrations on nearly every page.Written some years after the heyday of corsetry by Fernand Libron, president of the Chambre Syndicale des Fabricants de Corsets, and Henri Clouzot, conservateur of the Musee Galliera (better known today as the Musee la Mode et du Costume), this monumental costume book pays special tribute to Ernest LeotyÂ’s very scarce Le Corset a Traverse les Ages (1893), which includes detailed cutting patterns and technical information for the tailor who specializes in making corsets. “A corset is somewhat similar to an umbrella in its construction. When the umbrella is raised, the fabric tautens. The ribs are reinforced with metal tips, to which the fabric of the umbrella is sewn. These tips hold the fabric in a tautened condition while the umbrella is in use. It is the same with a corset” (O.Y. Dalziel). Text in French. Without original slipcase. Hiler, 544. Fine condition.

        Autograph letter signed

      1933. Signed. RACKHAM, Arthur. Autograph letter signed. Surrey, England, July 28, 1933. Single sheet, measuring 4-1/2 by 7 inches folded; pp. 4 (writing on first and last pages). With archive of related material. $2200.Original lengthy autograph letter from Arthur Rackham, entirely written and signed by him, to a Mrs. Lloyd [Berrall] regarding the theft of his illustrations by American artist Edward Trumbull for a mural in New York's Metropolitan Life Building, with original hand-addressed signed envelope.This autograph letter by Arthur Rackham was written in response to a letter from a Julia Smith Berrall (a.k.a. Mrs. James Lloyd Berrall) of Montclair, New Jersey. Berrall had written to Rackham to inform him that the new murals in New York City's Metropolitan Life Building by muralist Edward Trumbull were ""exact copies of the figures in [his] illustrations of Rip Van Winkle and the Legend of Sleeph [sic] Hollow."" She further inquired whether Rackham had given permission to Trumbull to use the images. Less than two weeks later—incredibly quickly for transatlantic mail—Rackham penned an outraged response. The letter, written from Rackham's home in ""Stilegate, Limpsfield, Surrey, England"" and dated ""28.7.33,"" reads: ""Dear Mrs. Lloyd, Many thanks for your letter. You are quite right in assuming that. I know nothing about Mr. Trumbull's theft of my designs—for it is nothing less. I will take steps to find out whether there is anything to be done about it. That whether Mr. Trumbull is on the safe side of the law or not (& one fears he may have taken steps to find out, before embarking) it is a strange mentality that allows one artist to lift the work of another without even the courtesy of an acknowledgement. I am indeed surprised that a man in such a position as Mr. Trumbull appears to be should so demean himself. One would think that any artist would feel it to be an outrage, which it certainly is. Yrs sincerely, Arthur Rackham. PS. The question of International Copyright is one that to my sorrow the United States will not agree with the rest of us about."" Included with the letter to Mrs. Berrall are a copy of an article concerning the murals in the May 1933 issue of Pencil Points that showed pictures of the murals, but made no reference to Rackham; a copy of Berrall's letter to Rackham; a handwritten letter on Montclair Art Museum stationary which appears to be a draft of Berrall's letter to Publisher's Weekly inquiring about the plagiarism issue and inquiring as to whether Pencil Points was aware of Rackham's ownership of the mural images; a letter to Berrall from Publisher's Weekly confirming that Metropolitan Life was aware of the plagiarism and was attempting to come to a settlement with Rackham; a draft of an article by Jesse Mann of The Chatham Bookseller who acquired the Berrall/Rackham material and attempted to find out the ultimate disposition of Rackham's claim against Metropolitan Life; a copy of a letter from The Book Collector to Mann asking for additional information on the Met Life building; and Mann's finished article, published in The Book Collector in 1996.Autograph signed letter and envelope fine. A fascinating and desirable collection of items.
