Beide Spiegel als Pergamenteinlage im Format 28,5 x 39 cm. Auf dem rechten Spiegel mehrfarbige Tusche-Zeichnung \"Barfüsserkloster 1250\" mit dem Stadtwappen von Saalfeld, darunter in Zierschrift schwarz und rot: \"Der Stadtrat von Salfeld an der Saale hat am 20. April 1933 in feierlicher Sitzung beschlossen, den\" (Fortsetzung des Textes auf dem rechten Spiegel, ebenfalls in Zierschrift / Kalligraphie in den Farben schwarz, rot und blau) \"Kanzler des Deutschen Volkes Adolf Hitler zum Ehrenbürger zu ernennen und hierüber diesen Ehrenbürgerbrief auszufertigen. Mit dieser Ernennung legen die Männer des Stadtrates im Namen einer Volksgemeinschaft von Bürgern aller Stände und Schichten gläubiges Bekenntnis ab: die 1000jährige Geschichte dieser Stadt wird nicht in Niedergang und Abbruch enden. Sie ist durch zähen Kampf unter dem Hakenkreuzbanner den Fesselungen marxistischen Irrwahns entrissen worden. Nun soll sie, wieder aufwärtsstrebend, würdige Fortsetzung finden durch Treugelöbnis zum Werke des Erweckers, Erretters und Erlösers dieses Volkes. Gott schütze unseren Ehrenbürger! Gott segne das Werk Adolf Hitlers! Saalfeld/Saale, den 20.April 1933.\" Mit den eigenhändigen Unterschriften von Dr.Seidl (Stadtratsvorsitzender) und Dr. Wahl (Stadtvorstand) sowie Amtsstempel \"Land Thüringen - Der Stadtvorstand Saalfeld/Saale\" - Das \"Gläubige Bekenntnis\" stammt von Rudolf Jordan (1902 - 1988), seinerzeit NSDAP - Gauleiter von Halle-Merseburg und Magdeburg-Anhalt. - Diese Pergament-Urkunde in ihrem kostbaren Ganzleder-Handeinband stellt ein bedeutsames Art Deco Kunstwerk dar, entworfen von Buchbindermeister Professor Otto Dorfner höchspesönlich, sodann in seiner Meister-Werkstatt auf der Erfurter Strasse in Weimar angefertigt worden. - Otto Dorfner (1885 Kirchheim/Teck - 1955 Weimar) zählte seit den 20er Jahren neben Frieda Thiersch und Ignaz Wiemeler zu den drei bedeutensten Einbandkünstlern Deutschlands. Seit 1926 Lehrstuhl-Inhaber der Klasse \"Graphik und Schriftgestaltung\" in Weimar, hat er als Graphiker und Schriftkünstler eine Vielzahl von Verlagseinbänden, Katalogen, Plakaten und Firmenzeichen herausgebracht. Am bekanntesten wurde er jedoch durch seine einzigartigen Hand-Einbände im typischen \"Dorfner-Stil\": als Schmuckmittel bediente er sich fast nur der Linie und schuf damit eine zeitlose-gültige Verzierung - Werke von höchster Schlichtheit und unübertrefflicher Eleganz. Die hier beschriebene Ehrenbürger-Urkunde zeigt ebenfalls und mustergültig die typische \"Dorfnersche Linie\" als Gestaltungselement. - Die Mappe ist sehr gut erhalten; lediglich die beiden großen Pergament-Spiegel haben sich ein wenig verzogen (an zwei Ecken um etwa 2 mm hochgekommen) und zu einer leichten mittigen Wölbung (insgesamt etwa 3 mm) der Mappe geführt. - Einzel-Aufnahmen per email auf Anfrage.

        THE SCIENTIFIC ROMANCES OF H.G. WELLS (1st Omnibus Edition of: THE FOOD OF THE GODS, IN THE DAYS OF THE COMET, THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU, THE WAR OF THE WORLDS, FIRST MEN IN THE MOON, THE INVISIBLE MAN, THE TIME MACHINE, MEN LIKE GODS)

      London: Gollancz, 1933. Wells, H. G. THE SCIENTIFIC ROMANCES OF H. G. WELLS. London: Gollancz, 1933. First Omnibus Edition, first printing. A Near Fine copy (only a few insignificant marks of abrasion to the boards) in a NEAR FINE COMPLETE AND UNRESTORED ORIGINAL DUST JACKET (spine panel a trifle age-toned as is usual with the Gollancz yellow dustwrappers of the era, a few very tiny blemishes, very likely removed whilst the volume was being read). This very first collected appearance of Wells' most famous novels appears in an 8vo volume which is 1,232 pages in size and thrice the thickness of the average book of the period (which might also explain why so few examples are still extant and why this is only the first copy in Dust Jacket that we've ever been able to offer for sale). This edition for the masses was likely short-printed, many may have perished in the pulping drives of WW2, but perhaps the likeliest explanation for its rarity is that, by the time the reader of the period finished all eight novels, the book was probably handled to death. For today's collector who may be disinclined to spend the fortune required to put together a set of the individual first edition volumes, this first Omnibus Edition may be an answer. Ironically the rarity lies here; one could find twenty first edition copies of The Time Machine or The Invisible Man before one could find a single example of this scarce and desirable First Omnibus Edition, especially one in such superb collector's condition. . First Edition Thus. Near Fine/Near Fine.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1933 - 1933 Original Hardback Wisden

      1933. Hi, This lot is a 1933 Original Hardback Wisden in Good Condition, very good for the year. Wisden chaaged materials in 1933 and the quality of the books suffered as a result, hence why 1933-1936 seem a lot more faded than the early 1920s Hardbacks. This 1933 is pretty average on the outside and slightly better than average on the inside. The gilt to the front and spine is fading as per th eyear and the boards are dulled. Odd mark to the boards. Internally it is a nice and bright book, very yellow pastedowns and titlepage and clean inside. The front hinge has some weakness but no mesh is showing , it is more inbetween pages 2 and 3 and not the front hinge. The rear hinge is strong but a small amount of mesh is showing and looks like it has seen some repair but inconclusive. Excellent photoplate.

        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.

        Advertising Poster for Mathis Cars

      Mathis, (Strasbourg 1933 - (1)ff., folded into sixths. Printed in bright color on both sides, the poster depicts a variety of four- and six-cylinder cars available from the French automaker Mathis for the 1934 model year. These include the EMY4 and EMY6, available in the convertible St. Moritz, Deauville coupe, and four-door Dynamic. The text touts new "Quadruflex" independent suspension for safety and comfort. On the covers, when the poster is folded, are two bold, stylish Art Deco illustrations: a red convertible filled with five passengers touring a country road, and a sleek yellow sedan speeding along a coastal highway. Laid in is a sheet with the technical specifications for each model. The company, founded by Émile Mathis, produced automobiles in Strasbourg, Alsace between 1910 and 1950. After the first World War, Mathis was the number four automaker in France, competing directly with Citroën. A remarkably fine piece of ephemeral automobilia.

        MISS LONELYHEARTS.

      New York: Liveright Inc., [1933].. Medium brown cloth, lettered in silver. Cloth somewhat soiled and spotted around the lower edges and much of the spine, some occasional foxing and mild spotting; just a sound, tight copy, cloth in a facsimile dust jacket by a former owner. First edition, first printing, of the author's second novel. Only 800 copies of the initial printing of slightly in excess of 2000 copies had been released to the publisher by the printer when the Liveright firm went bankrupt. Publication was taken over by Harcourt, and the second and third issues from the first edition plates appeared under the imprint of Harcourt, and later, under the imprint of Greenberg. In point of fact, apart from the deluxe signed issue of THE DREAM LIFE OF BALSO SNELL, the primary form of this novel is West's scarcest published book. This is an interesting association, inscribed by West on the front free endsheet utilizing the nickname he used among friends: "For Bob Brown affectionately Pep West." The recipient was almost certainly novelist, poet, hack and miscellaneous writer Robert Carlton Brown, who had just returned to the US after his stint in Paris and unsuccessful effort to gain public interest in his Reading Machine. Brown was among the several distinguished contributors who wrote essays in praise ("Go West, Young Writer") of the novel for publication in the special issue of CONTEMPO published in July of 1933. West's prior acquaintance with and confidence in Brown is underlined by the fact that West had suggested Brown to CONTEMPO's editor as one of several potential contributors to the issue.

        USSR in Construction

      1933. TROSHIN, N. USSR in Construction. Sixteenth Year of the Revolution. No. 1. Folio, bound in original wrappers. Moscow: State Publishing Union of the RSFR, 1933. A fine copy of one of many monographic issues of this landmark periodical, devoted to the Soviet automobile industry. As Martin Parr says "from 1930-1940 URSS en Construction employed the best Soviet photo-journalists and graphic designers. Amongst the photographers were Max Alpert, Arkadi Shaikhet, Georgi Zeima, Boris Ignatovich, Semen Fridland and Georgi Shaikhet. Designers included Nikolai Troshin, El Lissitzky, Sophie Kueppers, Aleksandr Rodchenko and Varvara Stepanova. All the visual strategies of the propaganda photobooks, designed by Lissitzky, Rodchenko and others -- the elaborate photomontages, innovative photography, fold-out pages, transparent overlays and so on -- were developed in URSS en Construction, one of the most beautifully produced magazines of the twentieth century." It was published in Russian, French, English and German. This is the English version. Slight wear from being folded, but overall in fine condition. Parr and Badger, The Photobook I, 148-149.

        Dolores, First Edition.

      [Maastricht: A.A.M. Stols], 1933. One of only 50 copies of the first edition. 11 white line wood engravings of nudes by John Buckland Wright. First edition, being one of only 50 copies. Printed on japon. Pp.43. 25.5 x 16.5 cms, in the original blue paper wrappers with printed paper label on upper cover, untrimmed. Very slight wear to very top and bottom of spine but generally an extremely good copy. Housed in a blue cloth covered box. Dolores was privately printed in only 50 copies by A.A.M. Stols in Maastricht for Baron Emile van der Borch, and is very rarely seen on the market. It was comprised of 11 white line wood engravings, each of the engravings is a female nude. Buckland Wright worked further on the blocks after this edition was published and hence there is a second edition in 40 copies in which the images appear as silhouettes. Baron van der Borch was a prominent patron and admirer of Buckland Wright and he began commissioning work from him after seeing his work for the JBW Editions Cupid's Pastime which appeared much later in 1935. He comissioned Deux Poèmes and Dolores from him amongst several other items. Unfortunately the commissions were stopped by the Nazis who shot the Baron whilst in his early twenties.

      Los Angeles: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1933. Original American program for the 1933 film, with an original illustration by Hirschfeld and a striking photo of Jean Harlow on the front wrapper. Rarely in the 1930s was such excellent source material successfully combined with such stellar screenwriting, directing, and acting talent. Today the film plays equally well as both comedy and drama, and stands as a stark reflection of the upper class during the Depression. Marie Dressler was never more outrageous, Jean Harlow never more dizzy, Billie Burke never more confused, and John Barrymore never more drunk and suicidal. 9 x 12 inches, 16 pages, full color, saddle-stitched card stock.

Realizado com o intento de elaborar um tratado geral de Etnografia Portuguesa, este é um trabalho do mais importante e exaustivo que alguma vez se realizou em Portugal. O conjunto das obras de José Leite de Vasconcellos representa mais de sessenta anos de trabalho ininterrupto nos campos da Filologia, da Etnografia e da Arqueologia onde foi ?primus inter pares? deixando um vasto leque de informação que viria a servir as gerações vindouras. Infelizmente no que diz respeito à sua ?Etnografia Portuguesa? só conseguiu ver o terceiro volume saído dos prelos, tendo sido todos os outros publicados postumamente. Este vulto maior da cultura portuguesa contemporânea, nascido no seio de uma família aristocrata na aldeia vinhateira de Ucanha do concelho de Tarouca a 7 de julho de 1858, foi um grande erudito, professor exigente e eterno celibatário. Viveu de forma simples e austera, sensível e solidário com os mais desfavorecidos. Tomou posse do lugar de conservador da Biblioteca Nacional em fevereiro de 1888. Trabalhou nesta instituição durante 23 anos. Empenhou-se na criação de um museu dedicado ao conhecimento das origens e tradições do povo português, projeto apoiado por Bernardino Machado, à época Ministro das Obras Públicas e responsável pela criação do Museu Etnográfico Português em 1893. Instalado inicialmente numa sala da Direção dos Trabalhos Geológicos, este museu foi transferido em 1900 para uma ala do Mosteiro dos Jerónimos. Inaugurado a 22 de abril de 1906, designou-se Museu Etnológico (atual Museu Nacional de Arqueologia), denominação que detinha desde 1897
