        Tainstvennaia natsiia (Iaponiia) [The mysterious nation - Japan; An Unknown Nation]

      Mech Gedeona, Harbin 1933 - Octavo (20 × 14 cm). Original printed wrappers; 119 pp. Very good; text evenly toned due to stock; very discrete repairs to spine extremities. Russian translation of this 1933 work by Nakada, a Japanese protestant minister and the first bishop of the Japan Holiness Church. Influenced by the Christian Zionist William E. Blackstone and Nicholas McLeod, Nakada argued that the Japanese were descended from the ten lost tribes of Israel and that Israel would be restored through the Japanese. Nakada's theory was used, in part, to justify the nationalist and militaristic discourse of the Japanese Empire prior to World War II. Nakada was one of the most influential evangelists in the 1920s, who also toured the United States, but his controversial views later led to a schism in the Holiness Church. Scarce: KVK, OCLC show the copies at Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin, Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, Holy Trinity Orthodox Seminary, and Hebrew Union College (with just two copies outside Japan, the original English edition is apparently equally scarce).

        Economic Foundations of Fascism

      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.

      Paris: Edition Arts et Metiers Graphiques, 1933. First edition. original spiral bound. Very Good. FIRST EDITION OF BRASSAÏ'S MASTERPIECE, ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL AND BEAUTIFUL OF ALL PHOTOBOOKS. Paris de Nuit is "a ravishing book object in a purely physical sense. The printing represents arguably the most luscious gravure ever seen, the blacks being so rich and deep that after handling the book one expects to find sooty deposits all over one's fingers. The gradation of tones is wonderfully subtle, describing an apparently infinite range of black and near-black tones. The layout, with its characteristic full-page bleeds, never more felicitously employed, takes us from image to image, from page to page, and across night-time Paris, with effortless panache... One should think of it as amongst the best produced and influential photobooks ever" (The Photobook, Vol. I). Roth 101. Complete with 60 stunning photogravure reproductions. Paris: Edition Arts et Metiers Graphiques, 1933. Quarto, original photographically illustrated flexible boards, spiral bound; custom box. A little edgewear and creasing to boards; a beautiful copy with strong, vivid images.

These three stories were first published on April 21,1917; Feb 20,1926; and October 1,1932. Sacramento bookseller Edward H. Crussell was a great fan of Rhodes and had the three issues bound by local bookbinders Silvius and Schoenbackler. He mailed the book to Rhodes for a signature. Rhodes responded with a full-page inscription: ##### “Dear Mr. Crussell: Your binding of this book is best possible evidence that you really like these yarns. I thank you. / Am correcting Paso Por Aqui - in the volume “Once in the Saddle”. Not correcting “Over Under Around and Through.” The only copy I have is the English edition, wherein mistakes of American edition were eleminated. [sic] And I haven’t strength to read it over, closely, watching for errors. This yarn was published in book form, under the title Copper Streak Trail - to my sorrow. If they had made it “Copper Hill Trail” I would have been better pleased. / Personally, I liked Robteelee Carr, I was well aquainted [sic] with that Lad. / In the Proud Sheriff” I have made one correction - in chapter VIII. My mistake entirely. There was no empty shell. All was [sic], the cylinder had been turned so that the first attempt to shoot would bring the hammer down on an empty cylinder. Billy the Kid did that to Joe Grant, and as Joe snapped Billy laughed and killed him. / My favorite wife is copying off news paper item about Johnny Dines.

        Kierkegaard. Konstruktion des Ästhetischen. (Beiträge zur Philosophie und ihrer Geschichte, 2)

      J. C. B. Mohr (Paul Siebeck), Tübingen 1933 - Quarto. [8], 165, [1]pp. Original printed wrappers with printer's device on front cover and title-page. First edition of this fascinating book being Adorno's major work, a defense of modernism that is paradoxical in its defense of illusion. In it, Adorno takes up the problem of art in a day when "it goes without saying that nothing concerning art goes without saying." In the course of his discussion, Adorno revisits such concepts as the sublime, the ugly, and the beautiful, demonstrating that concepts such as these are reservoirs of human experience. These experiences ultimately underlie aesthetics, for in Adorno's formulation "art is the sedimented history of human misery." Some age wear on wrappers with age toning on spine and along edges. Head of spine chipped. Lower corner bumped, thus slightly affecting pages throughout. Previous owner's inscription (unreadabble, dated 1948) on title-page. Text in German. Wrappers in overall fair to good-, interior in very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Flush: A Biography

      London: The Hogarth Press 1933 - First edition. With four Original Drawings by Vanessa Bell and six other Illustrations. Demy 8vo. Pale buff cloth boards with gilt spin, in cream dust jacket with illustration of dog. Book with slight lean, dark spotting to spine and some spotting to page edges; in dust jacket with light toning to spine, small nicks to edges of spine and 1" closed tear to rear spine fold, else bright and crisp. Kirkpatrick A19a. Woolmer 334. Flush is the fictional biography of Elizabeth Barrett Browning's cocker spaniel. While reading Elizabeth Barrett's love letters with Robert Browning, Woolf was inspired by the descriptions of the cocker spaniel, Flush, who kept the poet company while she was ill and was ever-present throughout the development of Browning and Barrett's relationship. Woolf, who had long had an affinity for animals and pets, decided to create a fictional story about the dog's life from his youth in the country to his adoption by Barrett and his subsequent life in the city. Although it is a topically lighthearted tale, Woolf uses Flush as a basis for social commentary, specifically about urban living and feminism. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Portrait Pencil Sketch of H.G. Wells

      England: T.B., 1933. Original pencil drawing. Framed and matted. Fine/None. T.B.. SIGNED by H. G. Wells, an original pencil sketch of Wells on an off-white 5 x 7 card, SIGNED below in fountain pen by the Author with a flourish. Matted and framed to an overall size of 10" x 12." An attractive and accurate pencil portrait of the famed author in his prime presumably by an admirer that has been SIGNED by H.G. Wells. Slight surface scuffing above the signature (possibly from a removed inscription). We have been unable to identify "T.B." Accompanied by a PSA/DNA Certificate of Authenticity. Herbert George "H.G." Wells (1866-1946) was a profound English writer. He was prolific in many genres, including the novel, history, politics, social commentary, textbooks, and even rules for war games. Wells is often best remembered for his science fiction novels and is called a "father of science fiction," along with Jules Verne and Hugo Gernsback. His most notable science fiction works include The Time Machine (1895), The Island of Doctor Moreau (1896), The Invisible Man (1897), and The War of the Worlds (1898). He was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature four times. Wells's earliest specialised training was in biology. He was excellent at drawing and began to draw pictures and diagrams at an early age--hence probably his pleasure at signing this highly detailed portrait sketch by one of his many admirers. Wells also loved to annotate some of his books with what he called "Picshuas": little cartoonish sketches that he sometimes drew. His thinking on scientific and ethical matters took place in a profoundly (social) Darwinian context. He was also from an early date an outspoken socialist, often (but not always, as at the beginning of the First World War) sympathising with pacifist views. His later works became increasingly political and didactic, at which time he wrote less science fiction. His social novels, like Kipps and The History of Mr Polly, which describe lower-middle-class life, led to some feeling that he was a worthy successor to Charles Dickens. Wells also critiqued English society in the novel Tono-Bungay (1909).

        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).
