This discovery came to give a remarkable confirmation to the theory of the electron of Mr. Paul Dirac which foresees the existence of the positive electron and the ephemeral character of this existence."--Paul Langevin, "The Positive Electron", Communication presented in public session of the French Society of Electricians, Saturday, February 3, 1934.

        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]

        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]

      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).

Wappentaf. / 432 S., 1 Bl., mit 55 farb. Wappentaf.; alle Bde. mit Fotos auf Kunstdruckpapier u. zahlreichen Textabb., 4°, O-Halbleinen mit Goldschrift (4 Bde.) Dr. jur. Bernhard Koerner (1875-1952) war Reichspräsidialrat, Mitglied des königlich preußischen Heroldsamtes u. Stiftungsmitglied der Guido-von-List-Gesellschaft. Sein Interesse am heraldischen Okkultismus verhalf Guido von List zu fast unbegrenztem Material für seine Runen- u. Heraldikforschung. In dem von List gegründeten "Hohen-Armanen-Orden" war Koerner unter dem Titel "Arz-Femo-Aithari" Mitglied. Dass die Runenauslegungen aus diesem in Einzellieferungen erschienenen "Handbuch der Heroldskunst" in völkischen Kreisen grosse Beachtung fanden, belegt auch der damalige Bezieher Karl Maria Wiligut (als SS-Mitglied in Heinrich Himmlers persönlichen Stab "Weisthor" genannt). Im Adressverzeichnis des zweiten Bandes findet man den "Erberinnerer" unter der Eintragung 314 wieder. Koerners Werk ist ohne Zweifel eine der Quellen für Wiliguts Wissen, das später Darré u. Himmler so gerne in Anspruch nahmen. Der 4. Bd. geht auch auf die Externsteine ein. - Mit Registern. - Einbände beschabt; die Rücken erneuert (die geblichenen u. fleckigen Original-Rücken dabei wieder aufmontiert); Kapitale leicht angerissen; alle Innendeckel mit Wappen-ExLibris "Pfarrer Hermann Knott" bzw.

        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.
