        Autograph Letter Signed

      Silent member of the legendary Marx Brothers comedy team, whose films include "Duck Soup" (1933) and "A Night at the Opera" (1935). Autograph Letter Signed ("Harpo"), 1p, 7¼" X 10½", Cathedral City, CA, n.y. [probably summer 1961]. Addressed to Don (Woolf). Near fine. In this rare example of a Harpo ALS, written on "El Rancho Harpo" letterhead, Harpo writes to an executive with a greeting card publisher, California Artists, which published a series of Christmas cards featuring artwork by movie stars. "Here is my Xmas painting," he writes. "Hope it is not too late for your market. If you use it I would like to send them out as my own personal cards also." Harpo had long been interested in civil rights and the African-American cause, so the closing of this letter is quite appropo: "Would like to stick to my original choice of N.A.A.C.P. to receive royalties, if any." Full letters in Harpo's hand are quite scarce, and one with choice, unusual content such as this doubly so. Accompanied by a modern matte finish printed 8" X 10" photograph depicting the four Marx Brothers at the height of their fame.

        Le Mer de Nice

      Les Bibliophiles de l'Automobile-Club de France, FR 1933 - Paris, Les Bibliophiles de l'Automobile-Club de France, 1933. Quarto (27x21cm). Limited edition being one of 130 copies. Printed on velin d'Arches, 43 coloured lithographed illustrations and vignettes by Georges Gobo. It is our understanding that the book was issued without a binding, the owner would pay to have the book bound to their liking. In this particular case, the owner has spared no expense. The slipcase and leather jacket are to a high standard as is the full leather binding, which is also decorated to the edges of the boards. A stunning copy. Often, when the books were presented to the bibliophiles the artists would attend the event and sign some of the illustrations and often the originals would be made available.

        The Great War

      George Newnes - A very near fine copy of this 26-part first edition, in a pair of fine custom made clamshell cases. The magazines are in beautiful condition. The worst you can say about this set is that there is very minor rubbing wear to a few of the spine bottoms, and there is some very minor creasing. Otherwise they are undamaged with all parts fully intact and no detached or loose covers. Very rarely seen in such nice condition. Please check the five images associated with this listing. The custom made green cloth clamshell cases are in fine condition - clean and unworn with undimmed gilt lettering and decoration to the spine, and the Churchill arms in gilt on the front face. These magazines constitute the first illustrated edition of 'The World Crisis'. The 26 parts were issued between September 1933 and October 1934. After publication Newnes offered binding services in three and four volumes, which has rendered this original appearance - fragile at the best of times - exceptionally scarce in nice condition. This set is both collector and gift worthy. It is, however, exceptionally heavy and may incur additional shipping costs depending on service requested. Standard domestic shipping will be at standard price. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Life in a Technocracy: What It Might Be Like

      New York: Viking. 1933. First. First edition. Fine in fine, price-clipped dustwrapper with a very faint spot on the spine. Book length essay on the possible effects of a technocracy on American life. Loeb was an important figure in the Paris expatriate community. He is remembered in the literary world as the model for Jake Barnes's rival for the affection of Lady Brett Ashley in The Sun Also Rises, where his early kindnesses to Hemingway (using his influence with Horace Liveright to get In Our Time published) was repaid by being portrayed as Robert Cohn, the cowardly and especially "Jewish" villain. Loeb's views on a political movement which, though largely forgotten today, had numerous adherents between the wars. .

        VIOLETTE NOZIÈRES.

      Editions Nicolas Flamel,, Bruxelles 1933 - 14.5x19.5. 42pp. 2hh. Fotografía en cubierta de Hans Bellmer (Katowice, Slesia 1902 - Parigi 1975), 8 ilustraciones a plena página de Dalì, Tanguy, Ernst, Brauner, Magritte, Marcel Jean, Arp, Giacometti. Poemas de André Breton, René Char, Paul Eluard, Maurice Henry, E.L.T. Mesens, César Moro, Benjamin Peret, Gui Rosey. Tirada de 2020 ejemplates. Homenaje colectivo de surrealistas en defensa de Violette Nozières. En 1934 es acusada de parricidio y condenada muerte. Las alegaciones de abusos sexuales, lejos de crearla simpatizantes, avivaron más el odio contra ella de gran parte del público. La historia de Violette paso de ser un mero 'fait divers', a convertirse en un drama nacional en capítulos, que conmocionó y fascinó Francia ya casi al final de la turbulenta Tercera República. Todo este boom distraía, también muy convenientemente a los franceses de los trágicos sucesos que estaban teniendo lugar en Alemania. Al final la encarcelaron, pero después de 12 años, por su ejemplar comportamiento quedó en libertad. Envíos para España: el pago contra reembolso conlleva un recargo de 2 Euros.

Further Studies of the Problem of Endemicity" in Proceedings of the Royal Society of London A 141, 1933

      - FIRST EDITION OF A THREE VOLUME LANDMARK SERIES OF PAPERS PROVIDING THE FIRST MATHEMATICAL ANALYSIS OF EPIDEMICS as well as "the first mathematical model that could be used to describe an influenza epidemic" (Coburn, "Modeling influenza," BMC Medicine, 7, 2009, 1741). "Mathematical modeling of epidemics goes back to 1927 with the formulation of [these] classical equations" Lewis, Network Science, 8.1.1). The Kermack-McKendrick model is known as the Susceptible-Infections-Recovered (SIR) model and is used to depict the number of people infected with a contagious illness in a closed population over time. To simulate an influenza epidemic the model, Kermack and McKendrick developed the pioneering threshold theorem that enables the interval between epidemics and their size to be studied. "According to this, the introduction of infectious cases into a community of susceptibles would not give rise to an epidemic if the density of susceptibles was below a certain critical value. Once the critical value was exceeded, then there would be an epidemic of magnitude sufficient to reduce the density of susceptibles as far below the threshold as it originally was above" (Cliff, Deciphering Global Epidemics, 26). [Kermack and McKendrick's] SIR model has been used as a basis for all subsequent influenza models" (Lewis). Furthermore, beyond influenza models, "most modern mathematical epidemiology" is based on these classic papers (Watts, Six Degrees, 332). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Harrison & Sons, Ltd. Three volume 4to. (10 x 7 inches; 250 x 175mm. Ex-libris: Small library stamps on front and rear end papers (IBM Research Laboratories); no other library markings whatsoever.

        Death In The Woods And Other Stories.

      Liveright,, New York: 1933 - 8vo, 298pp. A very good copy, the spine a bit sunned in the original orange publisher's cloth with the the front panel and inside flap of the rare dust jacket loosely laid in. Black and gold title band. The jacket misprinted and reads "Death In The Wood" on both the front panel and the inside flap. Overall, a very nice square, tight copy. A notable highspot and rarity of 20th Century literature. As Liveright declared bankruptcy, most of the books were either pulped or sold off, making copies extremely rare. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Give Your Heart to the Hawks and Other Poems

      New York: Random House. 1933. First. First trade edition. Corners and spine ends worn and a little frayed, a good only copy lacking the dustwrapper. However, Inscribed by the author to Mercedes de Acosta: "Inscribed for Mercedes de Heusta(sic) with so much pleasure in seeing you here. Faithfully, Robinson Jeffers. Tor House, Carmel, California. November, 1933." De Acosta was a writer and actress, and a flamboyant Cuban-born lesbian linked romantically to Greta Garbo, Isadora Duncan, Marlene Dietrich, and many others, and who apparently acted as something of a facilitator in artistic circles (late in her life she championed and promoted a young Andy Warhol). .

        Post Junior Detective Corps and the Melvin Purvis Junior G-Man Corps cereal premiums

      Battle Creek, Michigan: General Foods Corporation. 1933-1936. An archive of Post Junior Detective Corps and the Melvin Purvis Junior G-Man Corps cereal premiums, including 10 pamphlets, seven metal badges and original mailing envelope, all issued to consumers of Post Toasties, a popular breakfast cereal. Stapled wrappers with pencil owner name, wear at the extremities, a couple with loose sheets; five pamphlets with punch holes and attached by two ring binders; and badges of gold and silver metal, each measuring approximately 1.5" x 1.5" and ranging from lightly to moderately rubbed. Overall very good plus.The group is composed of "Junior G-Men" instructional booklets (with two duplicates); a casebook; a secret operations manual; promotional brochure of "swell prizes"; a form (apparently removed from another booklet) partially completed in pencil (and in earnest: "I take this solemn pledge as part of my service to the corps and the ideals for which it stands"); and seven pin-back badges issued as youngsters moved up the ranks from "Detective" to "Captain." The color brochure illustrates other premiums available in exchange for box-tops, including toy pistols, whistles, and the granddaddy of premiums, the "G-Man Squad Gun" with "rat-tat-tat-tat" sounds and "flint and steel sparking device." A wonderful reminder of simpler times when children were encouraged to follow the exploits of the F.B.I. as it hunted down criminals such as John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson, and Pretty Boy Floyd -- and shot them dead. .
