        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).

        The Brownies and Prince Florimel; or, Brownieland, Fairyland, and Demonland

      The Century Co, NY 1933 - Octavo. (x), 246pp. Copiously illustrated by Palmer Cox. This was the first adventure of the Brownies written in prose, and which is advertised as having "a detailed, connected story, with a beginning, a middle and an end." A later issue, with the text, binding, and dust jacket all produced at different times. The disparate dates are typical of the time, as publishers contracted with different printers over time as they moved stock. Text block is the original 1918 first edition sheets. Bound in buff cloth, with the title and author's name to both spine and upper cover in dark blue; publisher printed on tail of spine as "Appleton Century." The Century Company merged with D. Appleton & Company in 1933. In dust jacket, lettered in dark blue, with publisher as "The Century Co." The back of the dust jacket advertises Century Juveniles, all of which were published in 1925, including the last of the original Brownie books, "The Brownies in Fairyland." This copy is in fine condition, with an unusually fine dust jacket. To nitpick, book has short repaired tear to front free fly leaf, light foxing to edge of text block, and a bit of browning in the gutter from acidic adhesive in the binding. Dust jacket shows only light tanning, infinitesimal chips to corners, and four small tears, each clean and less than 1/2 inch in length. A remarkably fine copy of this later Brownie title, rarely seen with a dust jacket in such fine condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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.

        PROHIBITION AND POLITICAL PERSUASION IN MISSOURI

      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.

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. .

        PROHIBITION AND POLITICAL PERSUASION IN MISSOURI

      , 1933. 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.
