        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. Very scarce; as of February 2017, WorldCat locates only one physical copy in the United States and one on microfilm.

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.

        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.

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.

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.

        Marlborough: His Life and Times

      1933. First Edition . CHURCHILL, Winston. Marlborough: His Life and Times. London: George G. Harrap, (1933-38). Four volumes. Octavo, original plum cloth, top edges gilt. $2000.First trade editions of this important biography, with hundreds of maps and plans (many folding), plates, and document facsimiles.Churchill wrote this history of his famous ancestor to refute earlier criticisms of Marlborough by Macaulay. “Though it was a commissioned work, Churchill would not have invested nearly a million words and ten years had it not had special significance for him. For he wrote about a man who was not only his ancestor, an invincible general, the first of what became the Spencer-Churchill dukes of Marlborough, and a maker of modern Britain, but also a supreme example of heroism in the two vocations which mainly interested Churchill and in which ultimate triumph seemed to have eluded him— politics and war making” (Wiedhorn, 110). “It may be his greatest book. To understand the Churchill of the Second World War, the majestic blending of his commanding English with historical precedent, one has to read Marlborough. Only in its pages can one glean an understanding of the root of the speeches which inspired Britain to stand when she had little to stand with” (Langworth, 164). Issued simultaneously in a signed limited edition. Errata slips present in Volumes I-III, as called for. Without scarce original dust jackets. Cohen A97.1.a. Woods A40a. Interiors fine; light fading to spines of Volumes I-III. About-fine condition. Increasingly scarce.

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

      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 . . . Gutes Expl. weiter Beschreibung s.Nr.21072! - Deutsches / Drittes Reich, Antisemitismus, Sachsen, Alte Kämpfer als heroische nordisch-germanische Menschen dargestellt, deutsche Menschen um Adolf Hitler, Charakterkunde, menschlicher Charakter, Charakterologie, Phrenologie, Schädellehre, Guido von List, der Frankenführer Julius Streicher und weitere Führungspersönlichkeiten des Nationalsozialismus rassenkundlich betrachtet, nationalsozialistische Führer in menschenkundlicher bzw. charakterologischer Beurteilung, Antisemitismus, Rassenkunde, NS.-Schrifttum aus Sachsen, völkisches / nationalsozialistisches Gedankengut

        Typed letter signed. WITH: Engraved silver trophy bowl

      1933. Signed. PATTON, George S. Typed letter signed. WITH: Engraved sterling silver prize bowl trophy . Fort Meyer, Virginia, May 29, 1933. Single sheet of cream letterhead measuring 6 by 7 inches. WITH: Sterling silver price bowl trophy measuring 9 inches in diameter and 4-1/2 inches in height. $12,500.Original 1933 typed letter written by George S. Patton to his sister and childhood best friend Nita and signed by him concerning his travels to compete in horse shows and discussing several of their friends and neighbors, including fellow West Point graduate Col. Toddy George, his uncle, Billy Wills, and his childhood nurse, Mary Scally, accompanied by an engraved sterling silver prize bowl he won in 1934 for riding Wild Ben at the Cherry Blossom Festival Horse Show.The letter, typed on Patton's personal letterhead and dated ""May 29 1933,"" reads: ""Dear Nita: I have been rather bad about writing lately and am sorry I cant plead excess businness for while I am as usual much occupied I have realy nothing important to do. I think I wrote you that we did nothing in the National Capital Horse Show. In the Front Royal Show we did very well and I got a bad fall which should have but did not hurt me. Too old and tough[.] Toddy George and I are leaving Wednesday Morning for two shows at Tuxeado and West Point we will be gone a week I hope he breaks his neck bit he wont. I have finished my boat all except some few jobs of painting and will launch it when I get back from W.O. on the 7th. How is Uncle Billy Wills and Mary Scally also give my love to Mary Post. I am sorry about her loss and would have written a dozen times but simply cant find the words with which to start. If I were there I could talk all right. She and Henry were so particularly nice at the time of Papa's death. Give her my love. We are all well. With lots of love your devoted broth. {signed] GS Patton Jr.""Although he earned a reputation as an avid letter writer, Patton nevertheless had great difficulty with spelling and sentence construction (evident in this letter). He struggled to learn how to read and write as a child and did not attend formal schooling until the age of 11. Historians have postulated that he may have had dyslexia. This letter shows a certain looseness he often displayed in corresponding to family such as his sister Anne ""Nita"" Patton. Nita was quite possibly Patton's closest friend as a child and she was often his playmate for games such as sword-fighting and war. As they grew up, the pair remained close. In fact, Nita became romantically involved with General Pershing, Patton's superior and mentor. Marriage seemed sure to follow. However, Pershing was so changed by the trauma and triumph of World War I that he lost interest in Nita and broke off their relationship. Patton, of course, had an active social life beyond Nita and this letter discusses several of his friends. Here, Patton is seen humorously wishing ill on Colonel Charles Peasley ""Toddy"" George, one of Patton's fellow West Point attendees. The son-in-law of Hoover's Vice President, George was on the 1928 U.S. Olympic Riding Team and undoubtedly showed the notoriously insecure Patton an uncomfortable level of competition. Also mentioned in the letter are Uncle Billy Wills (Patton's uncle by marriage, who held the distinction of patching Patton up when he lit himself on fire after filling a lamp with gasoline instead of kerosene) and Mary Scally (his childhood nurse and a devout Irish-Catholic who lived with Nita for much of her life).The letter broadly concerns Patton's equestrian accomplishments, which were considerable. On April 20, 1934, the Washington Post wrote that, at the Cherry Blossom Festival Horse Show, ""The horsemen's parade was brought to a close by six hunt teams of three horses each, ridden in hunt colors. The Cobbler Hunt, of Delaplane, Va. was represented by Col. George S. Patton, Mrs. Patton, and their daughter, Beatrice—always a familiar little group at the Virginia horse shows and hunter trialsÂ… The excellent hunter of Col. Patton and familyÂ… were foremost among the performers."" Major Patton had been promoted to Lieutenant Colonel on March 1, 1934.The letter is accompanied by an engraved sterling silver trophy prize bowl won by Col. Patton at the 1934 Cherry Blossom Festival Horse How. The impressive 9"" diameter bowl, which weighs over a pound, is engraved ""Cherry Blossom Festival Horse Show, National Capital 1934, Hunter Class 1st prize, Presented by Hotel Powhatan, Won By Wild Ben, Ridden By Colonel Patton."" Recently from the family of George S. Patton, Jr.Letter and signature fine, slight smooth denting and pinpoint tarnish to bright and handsome silver trophy bowl (occurred while in possession of Patton family).
