      Early Reprint London Constable 1933 Second Printing of the Second Edition, new and enlarged (pp. 282-86 list "New and Additional Cocktails"), of this classic mixology guide. Signed by Craddock, in very elegant script, on copyright page: "Here's How! / Harry Craddock / December 10, 1934." 8vo: 287,[1]pp. Publisher's finely woven tangerine cloth, spine and upper cover lettered in black, decorative end papers; wanting the dust jacket. Presented in two parts: Cocktails and Wines with an introduction by "Colette." A superlative example, square, tightly bound, internally fresh and bright, virtually pristine, with the author's scarce autograph. Fine ¶ First published in 1930, three years before this new and enlarged edition (complete with all of Gilbert Rumbold's stylish color illustrations from the first edition). A compendium featuring some 750 of Craddock's popular classics, including the famous Corpse Reviver #2, which he invented, and the Dry Martini, which he popularized. Craddock decamped to London's Savoy Hotel after Prohibition put a crimp on his career in the United States. His bar book was one of the first to not only list drink recipes but also to provide a wine guide. (Craddock contended every good bartender possessed a solid wine knowledge.) It is a fascinating record of the cocktails that set London alight in the years between the Wars. The legendary Savoy opened in 1889; César Ritz was its first manager, and Auguste Escoffier created its fine cuisine. N. B.

        Autograph Letter Signed, 8vo, 2pp., Trinity College, Cambridge, January 8, 1936. With embroidered napkin, framed, referenced in letter, and with Autograph Letter Signed and Typed Document Signed from philosopher and colleague G. E. Moore endorsing Ambroise's continuing study in "Finitism" within the philosopohy of mathematics

      Philosophy professor Wittgenstein writes to Alice Ambroise, American philosopher and former student saying it would take a book to explain why he disagrees with her, notes his immodesty by quoting Swift, and sends a New Years gift included. Wittgenstein returned to Cambridge University for the 1933-4 term which he began his by providing two sets of lectures: one entitled, "Philosophy," and the other, "Philosophy for Mathematicians." He distributed these lectures to his class and gave them to his five favorite students including Alice Ambroise. This duplicated set of notes was bound in blue paper covers and has been known ever since as "The Blue Book." Another set of notes created in 1934-5 was an attempt by Wittgenstein to formulate the results of his own work and became known as "The Brown Book" which was dictated to Alice Ambroise among others. Ambroise worked with Wittgenstein on this for between two and four hours daily, four days per week. By July of 1935, Wittgenstein had begun to accuse many of plagiarizing his work. During the dictation of "The Brown Book," Ambroise encountered Wittgenstein's wrath. Encouraged by G. E. Moore, Ambroise planned to publish in "Mind" an article entitled "Finitism in Mathematics" where she would present what she understood to be Wittgenstein's view. The article upset Wittgenstein who requested that she not to publish the article. She refused, but Wittgenstein ultimately did not blame her, rather he blamed the academics who encouraged her to publish the article. Wittgenstein broke off his working relationship with Ambroise as a result. She returned to the United States to teach. Wittgenstein writes our letter after their break occurred. "It was very nice of you to send me the detective mags. I've been reading one of them on my way from Vienna to Cambridge & enjoyed it thoroughly. The enclosed handkerchief is a belated New Year present. I got your letter about 8 weeks ago but didn't answer it for it seemed to me to be in a sense all wrong, & at the same time felt that I'd have to write a book to explain why. But the gist of what I could have written is expressed in a wonderful saying of Swift's which I found quoted somewhere: 'No man ever made an ill figure who understood his own talents, nor a good one who mistook them'. But if an angel came from heaven to tell you this, I wonder if you'd believe him. It is damn difficult to be modest in your heart; I know this because I lack modesty myself. (Though of course it's easy for me to say a few modest sounding things). I wish you lots of good luck, good thoughts & decent feelings." The letter is written and signed in black fountain pen, "Ludwig Wittgenstein". His New Year's gift of the embroidered napkin, as referenced in the letter, is included and separately framed with the unframed letter. Three years after he penned this letter, Wittgenstein was offered the prestigious Chair of Philosophy at Cambridge. Letters of Wittgenstein are rare. Images and price on request. Three years after he penned this letter, Wittgenstein was offered the prestigious Chair of Philosophy at Cambridge. G. E. Moore, Autograph Letter Signed, 4to, Cambridge, April 24, 1935. He writes that he acted "as Supervisor to Miss Ambroise during the first year" and endorses her "re-election to the studentship she now holds."she would "profit by a further year's research in Cambridge,'' He signs, "G. E: Moore." The letter is followed by a Typed Document Signed the next month, Cambridge, May 13, 1935, giving further details of her study. Moore notes her research subject in the "so-called 'Finitist' school in the philosophy of mathematics...." Signed, "G. E. Moore, Professor of Philosophy." Alice Ambrose (1906-2001), American philosopher who studied with Wittgenstein and G. E. Moore at Cambridge and earned her second doctoral degree in 1938 from Cambridge University. She taught philosophy first at University of Michigan then for most of her career at Smith College. Focused on analytical philosophy, her early works include "Fundamentals of Symbolic Logic" (1948) and "The Theory of Formal Inference" (1962) along with several papers published in the 1930s on mathematics, pi, and the mind. She co-authored with her husband, Morris Lazerowitz (1907-87) "Essays in Analysis" (1966), "Philosophical theories" (1976) and "Essays in the Unknown Wittgenstein" (1984). G.E. Moore, author of the groundbreaking "Principia Ethica" (1903) had been one of the first to welcome the young Wittgenstein on his arrival at Cambridge in 1911. They met regularly after Wittgenstein's return to Cambridge in 1929, Wittgenstein acknowledged the importance to him of Moore's views.

A Fine, unread copy, square, tight and unmarked, in a better than Near Fine jacket with brief edge wear, slight toning to spine, few stray spots on back panel. Haas & Gallup XXI. Wilson A20a. Fine From May to August 1933, several chapters of The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas appeared in the Atlantic Monthly. The book was not available until August, and in the United States the first printing sold out by August 22, nine days before the official publication date. At the age of 59, Stein had become a popular success. As she explained in Everybody's Autobiography (1937): "Well anyway it was a beautiful autumn in Bilignin and in six weeks I wrote The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas and it was published and it became a best seller . . . I bought myself a new eight-cylinder Ford car and the most expensive coat make to order by Hermes . . . I had never made any money before in my life and I was most excited. "Gertrude Stein's life-long companion, Alice B. Toklas, is the narrator of this book written by Stein, which describes their life together in Paris from Alice's point of view. Thus, The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas is not, in fact, Alice B. Toklas's autobiography; instead it is Gertrude Stein's idea of what such a book might look like. . . . [It] can also be described as a selective history of artistic and literary developments in Paris in the 1910s and 1920s, [with] witty stories of how Stein and her brother Leo began to collect early paintings by Paul Cézanne, Henri Matisse, and Pablo Picasso . . . first-hand accounts of numerous social gatherings, including the famous banquet for Rousseau given by Picasso and his wife . . . [and, in] one frequently cited story, Alice explain[ing] that, at a dinner party with many of the well know artists in Paris at the time, 'After a while I murmured to Picasso that I liked his portrait of Gertrude Stein. Yes, he said, everybody says that she does not look like it but that does not make any difference, she will, he said.' . . .

        "What do you think would be proper solution if a man is convicted of illegal entry? Give him a choice of where to be deported? What countries will accept him under that circumstance? As I see it the principal difficulty is that a political refugee now cannot enter legally since he must make an escape from his own country therefore his is always liable for illegal entry and you've got to find a legal way to pass him on somewhere else or provide for asylum of political refugees. Otherwise you are simply going to publicize an endless series of deportations which is o.k. if anybody wants martyrs but god damned impractical as tactics." Outstanding Autograph Letter Signed, 6 pp on 3 sheets, 4to, Bimini, BWI, June 28, 1936

      In this timely and substantial letter, Hemingway responds to Abner Green's request to write press releases for The American Committee for the Protection of the Foreign Born. Hemingway's opinions are clear, especially with the suggestion that he write about the "murder of sending people guilty of political offenses back to Fascist countries and advocating some provisions for the right of asylum for political refugees." Specifically, he describes the brutal murder of Otto Richter, a 21-year old anti-Nazi German who had fled to the United States in 1933. Hemingway refers to his Esquire and Cosmopolitan magazine articles and Cuban politics. This a remarkable letter. Additional background information on the letter follows the text: "Dear Green...Was in Cuba 6 weeks working on something and did not see your Richter releases or [other] releases as P.O. not forward 2nd class mail. However, you're so much better than my own conscience that sometimes wonder if you must not feel pretty happy at what a good man you are. Certainly you have a damned worthy job and presumably are being paid for doing it as well and you have the satisfaction of being morally superior to Guerillas or just call it bandits.. O.K. pal. To please you and see what difference it would make haven't written an Esquire article for 4 months. Have given them 2 good stories I could have sold elsewhere...and have been working like a son of a bitch... Now I am a shit because I've sold my 3rd story in 4 years to Cosmopolitan. The other two were good stories and so is this one. You go to hell. Now what do you want me to do about your press releases? By the time they catch up with me is too late to protest as now on Richter who you have sadly on 13th and today is 18th and you sent that one by airmail. Will you write a telegram to be addressed to Sec. Perkins which I can sign and you send and I pay for. any such cases. Can have it on file in KW office of Western Union and you wire there collect giving name of deportee etc. and the girl there will send it and charge it to me. Or do you want me to write an Esquire piece on the murder of sending people guilty of political offenses back to Fascist countries and advocating some provisions for the right of asylum for political refugees. It is a subject I can write a good piece on. In that case please give me list of cases and their disposition. Also information as to what countries would accept Richter for instance if he were deported to another country than Germany. What do you think would be proper solution if a man is convicted of illegal entry? Give him a choice of where to be deported? What countries will accept him under that circumstance? As I see it the principal difficulty is that a political refugee now cannot enter legally since he must make an escape from his own country therefore his is always liable for illegal entry and you've got to find a legal way to pass him on somewhere else or provide for asylum of political refugees. Otherwise you are simply going to publicize an endless series of deportations which is o.k. if anybody wants martyrs but god damned impractical as tactics. Will you please write me this [doll] to Box 406-Key West-Fla. Anyway out west with my wife and [Bob} The [kids] middle of July and will take your [doll] with me and write a piece or will send the telegrams. Arrange for them in advance or both. I didn't answer your letter before this one about mu stuff because it was so bloody righteous. Maybe it wasn't. What the hell. Anyway if righteousness is your bread and cheeze [sic] and red wine for Christ sake eat and drink it well. People in the church die happiest. It doesn't matter what form the church takes and if feeling superior is all you've got for Christ sake feel superior. I get the same kick when I write a good story. Send me the dope. I'm sorry as hell about Richter. I'm also sorry they took a pal of mine out 4 weeks ago and broke both his ankles, pounded his balls, broke all his finger bones and then poured a gallon of gas over him and set him on .fire alongside the road to Gruajoy [?]. As near as anyone can figure the couldn't make him talk either. Nobody's gotten it since. What are you doing about Batista and Jose Pedraza? What do you know about what the last names has been getting away with? or do the fish bit too good with money and Cosmopolitan stories have to be written in the afternoons? You've a nice lead there for the next time you [pan.] Pan [sic] ahead pal. I'll be a son of a bitch if I'm [?] to want any friends...." .." Signed, "So hay, Good luck Ernest Hemingway.''. Abner Green, a writer, was in charge of educational materials for the American Committee for the Protection of the Foreign Born (ACPFB) and would become its Executive Secretary of from 1941 to 1959. As the person in charge of publicity and educational materials for the ACPFB, it would have been Green who sent out press releases on various issues the committee was addressing. Hemingway is referring to the press releases that Green was sending out regarding Otto Richter , a German immigrant who became a cause celebre. Fleeing Nazi Germany, Richter got to the United States in 1936, but faced deportation back to Germany where he likely would have been killed. A protest movement supporting Richter and a letter writing campaign to Pres. Roosevelt, failed. Richter went on a hunger strike, wound up in the hospital and was finally granted permission to emigrate to Mexico. The US and Mexico had agreed to allow some refugees arriving in America to be relocated to Mexico. According to "The Mexican Right: The End of Revolutionary Reform, 1929-1940," by John W. Sherman (Praeger, 1997), Richter was one of the "leftists whom New York communists routed to Mexico - spared from certain death in Germany." However, our research makes it unclear whether Richter was actually a communist at the time or whether he was so labeled in the 1950s when the ACPFB was also deemed communist, not just left leaning. Among the press releases that Abner Green must have sent out and to which Hemingway referred, were the following, each with further interesting bits of information on Richter and the American Committee for the Protection of Foreign. -In the July 11, 1936 issue of the "Oakland Times," an article reads, "The American Committee for the Protection of Foreign Born New York announced today that arrangements have been made to give Otto Richter… German awaiting deportation, 30 days to leave the United States… Richter, arrested here [San Francisco] during the 1934 longshoremen's strike, expressed fear of Nazi retaliation if he was deported to his native country. He was active against the Nazis prior to 1933, he informed immigration officials… has been held at Ellis Island since June 12, but was freed yesterday under $1000 bail furnished by the committee." The article further states that Richter was hoping that he would be granted permission from "some foreign country" to go there with his 19-year old American wife. In the October 5, 1936 issue of the Reading [Pennsylvania] Times, an article notes that the ACPFB announced that Mexican authorities had consented to receive Richter as a "political exile." It further notes, "Last June he marched down Broadway with a sign on his back saying 'Shoot me'. He contended he would suffer that fate if sent back to Germany. And, in the Indianapolis Star of October 6, 1936, an article entitled "Nazi Foe Gets Refuge," it is stated that "Otto Richter, 21 years old, anti-Nazi German, who fled his native land three years ago, has obtained permission to enter Mexico as a political refugee, the American Committee for the Protection of Foreign Born announced today. Richter and his American-born wife will leave for agencies caring for the sick."[Seems this quote should read "leave with agencies…"]. A correspondence between Hemingway and Green began when Green, using his pen name Paul Harris, wrote an open letter to Hemingway, entitled "Please Mr. Hemingway!" which appeared in "The American Criteria," December 1, 1935. He implored Hemingway to stop writing the kind of stories he was writing for "Esquire Magazine" and instead to write of more important issues. The letter was distributed by The American Committee for the Protection of the Foreign Born. From this letter, a correspondence developed between Green and Hemingway. As a result of Green's call to Hemingway to take on the issue of immigrants, both men began a correspondence which would likely include this letter. Hemingway became the Co-Chairman of the Committee of Sponsors of the American Committee for the Protection of the Foreign Born. The other Co-Chairman was Dr. William Allan Neilson, a Scottish-born American and President of Smith College who advocated for the acceptance of Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany into the United States. The open letter to Hemingway is referenced in "The Legacy of Abner Green: A Memorial Journal," edited by Harry Carlisle, published by the ACPFB in 1959. This is referred to in "Ernest Hemingway. Supplement to Ernest Hemingway: A Comprehensive Bibliography," by Andre Hanneman, p. 146.  The open letter is reprinted in "Hemingway and the Mechanism of Fame," by Matthew Bruccoli, University of South Carolina Press, 2006. The American Committee for the Protection of the Foreign Born [ACPFB ]was founded in 1933 on "the initiative of Roger Baldwin of the ACLU to defend constitutional rights of foreign-born persons in the United States. The new organization assisted individuals facing deportation, aided persons seeking to become naturalized citizens, attempted to combat harassment and official persecution of the foreign-born, and opposed discriminatory legislation." [See University of Michigan Special Collections summary of the Records of the Committee 1926-1980s, The Joseph A. Labadie Collection; https://quod.lib.umich.edu/s/sclead/umich-scl-acpfb?view=text]. The ACPFB also supported the Veterans of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade - Americans who fought in the Spanish Civil War. While there is no mention of Hemingway in the papers at the University of Michigan, the connection to Hemingway is clear. During the Spanish Civil War, Hemingway reported for the North American Newspaper "Alliance" and was a proponent of the Republicans against the Fascists. The ACPFB was formally dissolved in 1982 when it was absorbed by the National Emergency Civil Liberties Committee. Hemingway's reference to "Sec. Perkins," in our letter suggests that Green might have been thinking of having him write a telegram to Perkins who served as President Roosevelt's Secretary of Labor at the time. Senator Frances Perkins became the first woman to serve as a cabinet secretary and she is considered the "principal architect of the New Deal. " She is known especially for the Social Security Act which she spearheaded in 1935. Perkins held a firm stand on the issue of Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany and worked diligently to force FDR and America to take in refugees. Until 1940, the Department of Labor was in charge of immigration and naturalization. According to the University of Michigan website, "Throughout its history, the Committee was run by a small staff, with considerable assistance from those sponsors who served as honorary chairpersons. Abner Green was executive secretary from 1941 to 1959.

        Der Weg zur Ordensburg. Sonderdruck des Reichsorganisationsleiter der NSDAP für das Führerkorps der Partei, ihrer Gliederungen und der angeschlossenen Verbände.

      Vollständige Ausgabe im original Verlagseinband (Steifumschlag / Broschur / Kartoneinband im Großformat 30 x 42 cm) mit fotoillustriertem Deckeltitel. 63 Seiten, ohne Zählung, Schrift: Fraktur, Druckvermerk: " N i c h ti mf r e i e nV e r k a u f " und vielen - teilweise ganzseitigen - Fotoabbildungen auf Kunstdruckpapier (diese mit Bildunterschriften wie z.B.: "Die gespannten Blicke der Kreisleiter und Amtsleiter der Gauleitung bei den Fragen des Reichsorganisationsleiters an die Anwärter / Man betrachte den erwartungsvollen Blick und das rassisch gute Aussehen des Anwärters / Der Arzt, SA-Sanitäts-Brigadeführer Dr. Streck, ein alter Parteigenosse, Träger des Blutordens der NSDAP und Amtsleiter der Reichsleitung der NSDAP, bei der Auslese"). - Aus dem Inhalt: Worte des Führers und des Reichsorganisationsleiters der NSDAP - Der Weg zur nationalsozialistischen Ordensburg - Wie werden nun diese Parteigenossen auf den Ordensburgen zu Führern der NSDAP herangebildet? - Wie wir unsere Anwärter musterten - Der Aufbau der nationalsozialistischen Erziehungsarbeit für die Politischen Leiter in der Partei und den angeschlossenen Verbänden - Unsere Ordensburg Vogelsang (Eifel): Gesamtansicht und Teilaufnahmen - Unsere Ordensburg Crössinsee (Pommern): Gesamtansicht und Teilaufnahmen - Unsere Ordensburg Sonthofen (Allgäu): Gesamtansicht und Teilaufnahmen - Anschreiben an Gauleiter der NSDAP, von O. Marrenbach - Meine Rede bei der Musterung des Führernachwuchses im Traditionsgau München-Oberbayern - Triumph der Technik (Fotostrecke mit Bildern von Waschsählen, Küche, Heizung und Kraftanlage) - Das Wachsen und Werden der nationalsozialistischen Ordensburgen. - Mit zeittypischen Ausführungen wie z.B.: "Der gigantische Kampf, den der Führer und seine Gefolgsmänner 14 Jahre lang um die politische Macht geführt haben, war die beste Auslese und ein ununterbrochenes Exerzitium für die nationalsozialistische Weltanschauung. Die Männer, die dem Rufe des Führers folgten, mussten zumindest anders sein als die große breite Masse des Volkes. Denn wer sich unter den damals vorhandenen 47 politischen Parteien Deutschlands ausgerechnet die kleinste und nach den damals herrschenden Begriffen des Weimarer Systems die bedeutungsloseste und die von allen verfolgt, beleidigt und beschimpft wurde, aussuchte, der musste eigenwillig und eigensinnig, mutig und tapfer, opfer- und einsatzbereit zugleich sein. Wer diese Tugenden des Mannestums nicht besaß, wurde durch den ununterbrochenen Kampf, den diese Bewegung führte, augenblicklich wieder ausgemerzt. Denn von früh bis spät war jeder Tag für die Mitglieder dieser Partei ein einziger Opfergang. Von Zeit zu Zeit schaltete das Schicksal dann besonders schwere Prüfungen für die Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei ein, und wer dann noch nicht bis zum letzten geläutert war, fiel alsdann ab und verließ unsere Reihen. Mit einem Wort: der Kampf des Führers und seiner Partei war eine nie erreichte Auslese und Erziehung von Kämpfern für ein politisches Ideal. Darüber müssen wir uns klar sein das war nun nur einmal und wird in der Geschichte Deutschlands und aller Völker einzigartig dastehen und ist durch nichts zu ersetzen, und damit sind auch die Männer, die aus diesem Kampf als die endgültigen Führer des neuen Deutschlands hervorgegangen sind, einmalig und einzigartig. Auch das ist ein Beweis für die Behauptung, daß die nationalsozialistische Revolution eine von den ganz wenigen Revolutionen im Laufe der Jahrtausende darstellt, die war und echt ist . . . Diese Auslese und dieser Kampf fanden mit dem 30. Januar 1933 nach außen ihren Abschluss. Von nun ab war die Partei nicht mehr verfolgt, sondern sie herrschte. Es fanden keine Saalschlachten mehr statt, vielmehr wurden die übrigen Parteien aufgelöst und verschwanden . . . Jedoch der Führer und seine alte Garde wussten, daß jetzt erst der eigentliche Kampf begann. Es galt nun, diese Erkenntnis in den Mitgliedern der NSDAP immer wieder und von neuem wachzuhalten und die Führer der Partei, Politische Leiter, SA-, SS-, NSKK- und Hitler-Jugendführer auf die nun kommende Phase des Kampfes um Deutschland vorzubereiten und auszurichten. Um es klar zu sagen, dieser Kampf um Deutschland ist erst dann beendigt, wenn der letzte anständige Deutsche Nationalsozialist geworden ist und die nationalsozialistische Weltanschauung im Volk so verankert ist, daß für Jahrhunderte und Jahrtausende niemand anders den Anspruch auf die geistige Führung Deutschlands erheben kann als die Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei" / "Wir werden Ihren Charakter, Ihren Mut und Ihre Disziplin immer wieder prüfen. Wenn Sie diesen Anforderungen körperlich nicht gewachsen sind, werden wir Sie wieder zurückgeben und dann auch dafür sorgen, daß Sie in Brot und Arbeit kommen. Ganz anders ist es jedoch, wenn Sie aus charakterlichen Gründen versagen oder gar auf den absurden Gedanken kommen sollten, uns hintergehen zu wollen. Dann allerdings treffen Sie die unerbittlich harten Gesetze des Ordens. Wem die Partei das Braunhemd auszieht, der verliert damit nicht allein Amt und Stellung, sondern er ist auch persönlich vernichtet. Das sind die harten Gesetze des Ordens. Das müssen Sie wissen und das muss ich Ihnen heute mit aller Rücksichtslosigkeit sagen. Wenn Sie heute "Ja" sagen, sind Sie uns verfallen. Wenn Sie sich bewähren, werden Sie mit dem, was wir mit Ihnen vorhaben, zufrieden sein. Unsere drei Ordensburg Vogelsang, Crössinsee und Sonthofen sind von uns völlig neu gebaut und nicht etwa alte renovierte Ritterburgen. U n s e r eW e l t a n s c h a u u n gk a n nm a nn i c h ti na l t e mG e m ä u e rp r e d i g e n ,u n s e r eW e l t a n s c h a u u n gg e d e i h tn i c h ti mR e i c hd e rF l e d e r m ä u s e ,s i ev e r l a n g td a ss t r a h l e n d eL i c h te i n e rs c h ö n e nW e l t. Auf unseren Ordensburgen wird Ihnen jeder neue Tag zum neuen Geschenk werden, umso mehr, als Sie durch den von mir vorgesehenen Aufenthaltswechsel Gelegenheit finden sollen, jede der drei Burgen und damit auch drei völlig verschiedene deutsche Landschaft mit ihren Menschen kennen zu lernen. Wir beginnen jetzt mit der Ausmusterung. Sie vollzieht sich nach den Ihnen dargelegten Grundsätzen. Diese Grundsätze sind klar und einfach. Wir brauchen keine Schädelmessungen und ähnliche Dinge. Wir schauen Ihnen in Ihre Augen, richten einige Fragen an Sie, wir werden Ihr Gesamtverhalten mustern. Das mag sehr einfach und sehr leicht aussehen, aber die Amtsleiter, die ich bitte, an dieser Musterung als Beobachter teilzunehmen, werden die Härte und die Strenge des Musterungsaktes richtig zu erkennen vermögen" / "Wer versagt oder wer gar die Partei und ihren Führer verrät, wer der Gemeinheit in sich selber nicht Herr zu werden vermag, den wird dieser Orden vernichten. Wem die Partei das Braunhemd auszieht - das muss jeder von uns wissen und erkennen - , dem wird dadurch nicht nur ein Amt genommen, sondern der wird auch persönlich mit seiner Familie, seiner Frau und seinen Kindern, vernichtet sein. Das sind die harten und unerbittlichen Gesetze eines Ordens. Auf der einen Seite dürfen die Menschen in den Himmel greifen und sich alles holen, was ein Mann nur wünschen kann. Auf der anderen Seite ist der tiefe Abgrund der Vernichtung. Jeder nationalsozialistische Führer muss wissen - das will ich auf diesen Ordensburgen als ein unermüdliches und immer wiederkehrendes Gewissen den Männern einhämmern -, er wandelt auf einem steilen Grad. Es lässt sich hier nur wandeln, wenn eine nachtwandlerische Sicherheit vorhanden ist. Diese nachtwandlerische Sicherheit erhalten die Menschen erst, wenn sie beseelt sind von einem unbändigen Glauben und von einer unerschütterlichen Treue zu A d o l fH i t l e r und seiner Idee." - Erstausgabe in ganz guter Erhaltung (abweichend von den Fotos: Einband mit leichten Gebrauchsspuren und etwas fleckig, erste und letzte Seite etwas stockfleckig, sonst sehr gut) weitere Fotoabbildungen siehe Nr. 19596 !

        Original Drawing

      1933. Undated. An anatomical sketch by Feitelson, working on a male form, with a rocking chair on the verso. 4-1/2" x 8". Unsigned, but accompanied by a signed copy of the magazine Minotaure from 1933. The sketch shows some light green watercolor on the page and is near fine; the magazine has endured some unsuccessful attempts at reinforcing with a tape binding; the covers are detached. The signature, "Property of Lorser Feitelson," appears on the upper edge of the front cover. Feitelson was one of the founders of what came to be called the Los Angeles School of painting, a post-surrealist style that developed into what became the "Hard Edge" style of abstraction. This drawing exhibits a classical approach to draftsmanship. The issue of Minotaure is number 3-4, and features writing by Andre Breton, Tristan Tzara, and others; photographs by Man Ray and Brassai, among others; and artwork by Picasso, Matisse, Miro and Dali, among others. A glimpse of the artist's work, and a well-used example of a key surrealist publication, that provides some context for the artwork. No Binding. Near Fine.

        MOUNTAINEERING / PERU / 1932 GERMAN-AUSTRIAN EXPEDITION TO THE CORDILLERA BLANCA: CORDILLERA BLANCA UND MITTLERES SANTA-TAL (PERÚ) / CORDILLERA BLANCA-EXPEDITION DES DEUTSCHEN UND ÖSTERREICHISCHEN ALPENVEREINS EXPEDITION 1932. EXPEDTIONSLEITER.

      Munich: Klein & Volbert [] 1933 - Chromolithograph folding into original baby blue card case (Excellent condition, very minor wear along original folds), 93 x 65 cm (36.5 x 25.5 inches). An important original mountaineering artefact – the excellent official map produced by the 1932 German-Austrian Expedition to the Cordillera Blanca Range of Peru, which climbed the great peak of Huascarán Sur for the first time and collected consequential geographical and scientific observations.This impressive, large-format, separately-issued map depicts the famous Andean mountain range of the Cordillera Blanca, Peru, with precise accuracy for the first time. It is the official map produced by the 1932 German-Austrian Expedition to the mountains, which made the first successful ascent of the great peak of Huascarán Sur, which at 6,768 metres (22,205 feet) is both Peru’s highest mountain and the location on the Earth’s surface with the least gravitational pull (due to its proximity to the Equator). The expedition also conducted a variety of high-altitude scientific experiments and photographic mapping operations. The Cordillera Blanca (Spanish for "white range") is a great Andean range in Central Peru that covers and area about 200 kilometres (124 miles) long by 21 kilometres (13 miles) wide. It was imbued by the Incas with spiritual significance and had awed Europeans since the 16th Century for the majesty and sheer number of its great peaks. Indeed, the Cordillera boasts 33 distinct peaks over 5,500 metres (18,000 feet) and is home to 722 glaciers. The mountains were considered by professional mountaineers to be very dangerous to explore and ascend, as the inclines were steep and the equatorial location made the glaciers unstable, leading to a great frequency of severe avalanches. While some mapping of the mountain valleys had been conducted and some of the lesser peaks had been climbed and charted, prior to the 1932 German-Austrian expedition much of the area’s geography and glaciology was an enigma. While Huascarán Norte, the lesser and easier-to-climb if the twin peaks, had allegedly been ascended in 1908 by the American professor and suffragette Annie Smith Peck, the conquest of Huascarán Sur remained one of the great unrealized challenges of mountaineering in the Americas. This finely chromolithographed, bilingual (German and Spanish) map embraces the entire Cordillera Blanca, and depicts the incredibly complex topography with great accuracy, based on photographic surveys taken from the highest peaks. The peaks, with their frosted blue glaciers are carefully expressed, while elevation is conveyed through contour lines and data-points. The legend on the right labels the numerous types of topographical and man-made features portrayed on the map, while the inset map, in the lower left, the ‘U?bersichtsskizze, depicts the vantage points from where the photographic surveys were taken. The Deutschen und Österreichischen Alpenvereins Expedition (1932) - Ever since the time of the legendary explorations in Latin America conducted by their countryman Alexander von Humboldt (1769 – 1859), generations of young German (and Austrian) mountaineers held a fascination with the Andes. They were particularly taken with the story of Humboldt’s attempted ascent of the Ecuadorian peak of Chimborazo in 1802, which while unsuccessful in reaching the summit, attained the altitude of 5,875 metres, then a world record. Fast forward to the 1920s, both the Deutscher and Österreichischer Alpenverein (the German and Austrian Mountaineering Associations) were extremely well-funded and closely connected to their nation’s respective scientific communities. There was much initiative and ample resources to mount pioneering expeditions to the world’s most intimidating and scientifically intriguing mountains. . SEE OUR WEB PAGE FOR LONGER DESCRIPTION.

        LOST HORIZON (Original Final Draft Manuscript Of The Novel, With Author's Revisions) (Ex-James Hilton Estate)

      1933. HILTON, JAMES (1900-1954). FINAL DRAFT MANUSCRIPT OF THE NOVEL LOST HORIZON, an author-annotated 257pp carbon copy typescript. [Woodford Green, Essex, April 1933], 4to (10 x 8 inches), 206 with minor authorial manuscript revisions, corrections, deletions, and insertions in black ink, 61 of which include textual changes present in the work's first edition, the first leaf with the author's initial working title, "Blue Moon," in handwritten block letters and signed ["James Hilton"], followed by a typed but unnumbered half-title and prologue title, all other leaves hand-numbered at the top right corner as follows: 1-128, 128A, 128B, 129-206, 206A, 207-209, 209A, 210-211, 211A, 211B, 211C, 212-236, [a single page designated "237-242"], 243, 243A, [Unnumbered epilogue title page], 244-253. All leaves have four uniform holes in the left margin for insertion in a binder and are age-toned with occasional minor chipping; many have additional blue-pencil and ordinary-pencil corrections in two other distinct, certainly proof-corrector, hands belonging to the editors at William Morrow, Hilton's American publishers. The final three-and-one-half paragraphs of the epilogue (918 words) are not included with this typescript; this missing portion constitutes four typewritten pages at Hilton's rate of roughly 215-230 words per typed page and may represent a final set of changes to the novel's coda delivered later under separate cover. Otherwise the typescript is entirely complete and corresponds to the printed text of the first edition. PROVENANCE: "THE PAPERS OF JAMES HILTON" - CHRISTIE'S LOS ANGELES, 18th NOVEMBER, 1999 (LOT 83). One of the most celebrated and best-loved novels of the 20th century, LOST HORIZON in 1933 introduced "Shangri-La" to the English language and remains the 20th century's most renowned fictional vision of modern utopia. Three known typescript drafts of the novel exist. The first and final draft ribbon copies used by Hilton's London publisher Macmillan are housed at Pennsylvania State University. This, the annotated carbon copy used by Hilton's American publisher Morrow - the one James Hilton retained for his own files and which was sold at his personal estate sale in 1999 - is the final corrected draft currently being offered for sale. There are some minor but fitfully significant textual differences between the first English Edition and the first U.S. edition. This is important because in 1939, LOST HORIZON was published by Pocket Books #1 (the first ever mass-market paperback), with the American text, thus causing the American text to evolve into the standard published version. The adaptation of the 1933 novel into the 1937 Frank Capra directed film starring Ronald Colman further enhanced LOST HORIZON's worldwide fame and the film has long been considered a cinematic classic. It received seven Oscar nominations (including Best Picture) and became the sixth highest grossing film of the 1930s. Its reputation, like that of the novel, continues to grow after almost 75 years. As the first and final Macmillan corrected drafts are locked in the vaults at Pennsylvania State University, this surviving typescript stands alone as ONE OF THE FEW GREAT LITERARY MANUSCRIPTS OF THE 20th CENTURY STILL REMAINING IN PRIVATE HANDS. Each of the 257 leaves has been placed in an archival Mylar sleeve and the entire manuscript is now housed in a custom-designed quarter-morocco slipcase. . Signed by Author. Original Manuscript. Unbound. Very Good.

In Leighton's own words, 'a look at what is being lost'. Clare Leighton was born in London in 1898 and studied at the Brighton, Slade and Central Schools of Art. She emigrated to the United States in 1939, became a U.S. citizen in 1945, where she lived until her death in 1989. Very scarce with such attributes. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.
