        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. Wrappers Very Good plus with light rubbing, pages quite clean and supple.

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

Novelle von Peter Hagen alias Willi Krause... aus den Anfängen des Nationalsozialismus, dieses Buch selbst wurde noch im Jahr 1934 von den Nationalsozialisten wieder aus den Handel genommen. Alles weitere zu Autor, Titel und gleichnamigen Film unter Wikipedia oder Google. Schutzumschlag mit Beschädigungen , Buch in einem tadellosem Zustand. Inhalt:Antisemitisches Buch zum Unterhaltungsfilm: Während der Weltwirtschaftskrise 1931 lernt die arbeitslose Statistin Susanne den Regieassistenten Fredy kennen, der ihr eine Komparsenrolle in dem Kitschfilm \"Lieb mich mal in Honolulu\" verschafft. Die jüdischen Filmproduzenten werden als geldgierige, korrupte Verbrecher beschrieben, die einen illegalen Spielclub betreiben und, als sie einen Selbstmord verschulden, versuchen davon abzulenken, indem sie die Entführung Susannes und einer Kollegin vortäuschen. Susannes Verlobter Georg stöbert die Entführten jedoch auf, und gemeinsam versuchen sie nun, Beweise für die Vergehen der Produzenten zu finden. Nach der politischen Wende werden deren Machenschaften unterbunden, Susanne und Georg heiraten.Anti-Semitic Book: In 1931, during the Depression, the unemployed statistician Susanne gets to know the assistant director Fredy, who casts her as an extra in the kitschy movie, “Love me in Honolulu!”. The Jewish film producers are shown as greedy and corrupt criminals, who are running an illegal gambling club and, when their actions lead to someone’s suicide, try to divert attention from them by having Susanne and a colleague kidnapped. Susanne’s fiancée George manages to track down the kidnap victims and together, they attempt to find proof of the producers’ illegal activities. When the Nazis come to power, the producers’ machinations are suppressed and Susanne and George marry. e24 Versand D: 5,50 EUR

        Green Bough

      1933 - FAULKNER, William. A Green Bough. New York: Harrison Smith and Robert Haas, 1933. Octavo, original tan cloth, mounted cover illustrations, uncut and unopened. $3000.Signed limited first edition of Faulkner’s second and last book of poetry, number 248 of 360 copies signed by him, of which only 350 copies were for sale, with two mounted cover illustrations and mounted frontispiece by Lynd Ward."A Green Bough came out at the end of April [1933] without much fanfare. It was published as a favor to Faulkner by Hal Smith, with illustrations by Lynd Ward. The volume contained 44 poems, most of which were written very early in Faulkner's career and reflect his close reading of Eliot, Housman, Swinburne and Keats. One can hardly imagine that the author of these intensely literary poems is the same man who wrote Sanctuary or Light in August. This was Faulkner's farewell to poetry, and, as such, it warrants a glance. Poetry was the schoolhouse of Faulkner's fiction… A Green Bough remains a fairly accomplished collection that demonstrates a firm grasp on the craft of poetry" (Parini, 177). Twenty-nine of the 44 poems in this collection were previously unpublished and nearly all were revised prior to the publication of this work. No slipcase or dust jacket issued with this signed limited edition. Brodsky 147. Peterson A15.1a. Light offsetting to front endpapers. An about-fine copy.

        PUEBLO INDIAN POTTERY

      Nice, France, 1933. Folio. Text stitched and plates unbound as issued, contained within original publisher's cloth portfolio, upper cover with mounted plate and ties. Slight wear to extremities. Original tissue guards intact. Titles and first pages of introductions printed in red and black, half-titles, parallel text in English and French. Very good. Limited edition of 750 copies signed by the publisher. A rare part set of Chapman's survey of Pueblo Indian pottery, an art which was an integral part of a "native culture, unique among the patterns of the American Indian, [which] had its inception, and had reached its maturity, in the heart of the great southwestern area of the United States" (Introduction). This work is much scarcer than the same publisher's portfolio of Sioux Indian paintings which was issued several years later. The text gives a general introduction to the ceramic art of the Pueblo Indians of the southwestern United States, then concentrates on an overview of the pottery produced in the pueblos of Taos and Picuris, San Juan, Santa Clara, San Ildefonso, Tesuque, Cochiti, Santa Domingo and Santa Ana. This is followed by descriptions of the specific examples of the pottery shown in the plates. Szwedzicki also produced portfolios of Kiowa Indian art and Pueblo art, all published in the south of France in the 1930s.

        História & conquista da Índia pelos Portugueses. Scriptores Rervm Lusitanarvm (Série A).

      Coimbra, Imprensa da Universidade, 1924?1933. - 4 volumes. Folio (29.5 x 21.5 cm.), contemporary tan half sheep over faux crocodile paper boards (slight binding wear), spines gilt with raised bands in six compartments, two crimson morocco lettering and numbering pieces per volume in second and fourth compartments from head, gilt letter, decorated endleaves, top edges rouged, original printed wrappers bound in. Number 115 of 160 copies on "papel de linho numerados e rubricados." The signed justification appears on the verso of each title page. A very good set overall, internally very good to fine. xxxiv, 504 pp.; (2 ll.), 476 pp.; (2 ll.), 377 pp.; x, 681 pp. *** Excellent edition, the best and most complete, of this monumental history of Portuguese expansion overseas. Lopes de Castanheda (ca. 1500-1559) was recognized very early as an authoritative source; Diogo do Couto, another highly regarded historian of the Portuguese East, wrote, "This man (Castanheda) travelled about in India for nearly ten years, visiting most of the places there, and even reaching as far as the Moluccas. He described the things of that time very diligently ?." (translation from King Manuel). Aside from visiting the relevant sites, Lopes de Castanheda consulted documents and inscriptions, and spoke to many of those who took part in the Portuguese expansion. The @Historia, originally published in 8 books (Coimbra, 1551-61), represents twenty years of painstaking labor after he returned to Portugal around 1538. The ninth book, included with the rest of the work for the first time in volume four of this collection (pp. [525]?77; 593?4), was originally published at the Hague, edited by Father C. Wessels, S.J., in 1929. Lach points out, "It is remarkable, when we recollect that no previous writer had prepared a comprehensive narrative of the genesis of the Portuguese empire, that Castanheda was able, largely through his personal enterprise, to provide his own generation and posterity with a factual record, if not a brilliant narrative, of the Asiatic activities of the Portuguese ? And more than this, he was able through his personal observations to give greater substance to his account by describing in some detail the peculiar customs and techniques followed in India and thereby to make more explicit the cultural problems of Europeans in the East" (I, 188-89). Pages [595]?681 of volume IV comprise a valuable index of names and places.The @Historia was translated into more European languages than any other contemporary work on the subject, appearing in French, Spanish, English, Italian and German.*** Welsh 4702. Bell, @Portuguese Literature pp. 190-1 @et passim. Cândido Beirante in Machado, ed., @Dicionário de literatura portuguesa, p. 111.
