        Thurmond-Holmes Lynching: Real-photo postcard, titled "San Jose, Calif. Nov. 26 - 1933 11:25 P.M."

      [N.p.] 1933 - 1 vols. 3-1/2 x 5-1/2 inches. Photo of California's Last Lynching, 1933. On Nov 9, 1933, 22-year old Brooke Hart was kidnapped and held for $40,000 ransom. A massive manhunt led to Thomas Harold Thurmond. After six hours of interrogation, Thurmond confessed and named his accomplice, John M. Holmes. They both admitted murdering Brooke and dropping his body into the San Francisco Bay. On the evening of the 26th, a lynch mob broke into the Santa Clara County Jail and dragged Holmes and Thurmond to the St. James Park where 3000 onlookers from San Jose and the surrounding area, chanted "string them up." Governor 'sunny Jim" Rolf refused to call out the National Guard to protect the kidnappers, and referred to the lynching as a "lesson." "Thurmond was hung from the limb of a venerable mulberry tree, and, the limb of a great elm a few feet away served as Holmes' gallows a second or two later." - 'History of San Jose' by Clyde Arbuckle. Souvenir hunters so damaged the trees that they had to be cut down, and not a trace remains of them. This lynching was the last to take place in California, and was the basis for John Steinbeck's short story, "The Lonesome Vigilante."The photograph depicts the the three limbs of the tree rising from the trunk at center, and the hanging corpses of the two lynched men, Thurmond at left, partly clothed, above a small group of onlookers; Holmes (unclothed) at right. AN EXTRAORDINARY DOCUMENT OF AMERICAN SOCIAL HISTORY.

        Looking Forward

      John Day 1933 - One of ten deluxe copies only, prepared for presentation by the publisher and FDR. The publisher, in addition to the first trade edition, published a deluxe edition in a different format of 100 copies only, all numbered. Copies 11 through 100 were for sale. Copies 1 through 10 were not for sale. This is copy 10, one of the first 10 copies explicitly (according to the colophon page) not for sale. Differs from the first trade edition in many ways, including gold gilt on top edge and beveled boards. Also, strangely, the deluxe edition is a smaller format than the trade edition, although it has all the same content. Housed in a custom-made collector slipcase. Needless to say, deluxe one of ten copies of significant books by US Presidents are very uncommon. This is an early title by FDR, articles and speeches before he became President, and published just when he started his first term. Issued without a dust jacket. We have seen only one other copy of this presentation edition, and it was inscribed by FDR. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Private L. Kingsley, 14th West Yorkshire Regiment West Indies Voyage With Emphasis on Jamaica - together with 7 Medals.

      [1933-1934], [Jamaica] 1933 - JAMAICA: an Album With Original Photographs From an "Athletic" Officer - Includes 7 Army Medals. Photograph album compiled by a young, athletic officer identified as Private L. Kingsley while serving with the 14th West Yorkshire Regiment in the Defence of Jamaica. Included with the album are seven (7) army command sports medals earned by Kingsley from 1930 to 1935 whilst abroad, one earned in Jamaica and one in Baluchistan, the others unspecified. Medals are made by F. Phillips of Aldershot, all but one in their original cases as issued. Oblong quarto album, tri-colour string-tied boards, contains 215 black and white photographs, three (3) newspaper clippings, and two (2) ephemeral documents printed by the army. Photographs vary in size, the smallest approximately 4 x 6.5 cm and the largest 10.5 x 10.5 cm. LOVELY AND UNIQUE ALBUM WITH ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHS OF JAMAICA. VERY ATTRACTIVE. The album captures Jamaica with excellent photographs as the regiment was part of the Jamaica Defence Force. Street views show original colonial buildings, early nineteenth century lorries, a tram, and horse drawn carriages for transportation. An interesting and scarce photograph features a Jamaican marching music band. At least one expansive plantation estate was visited, yielding an unusual image of the factory with wagons overflowing with hand harvested sugarcane. Approximately 70 photographs appear to originate in Jamaica, some possibly being from Bermuda. The album is dispersed with occasional photographs of army sporting events and Kingsley earning a plethora of medals and trophies, and concludes with group photographs of the regiment and portraits of family members, some of which are presumably H. Kingsley. vols. volumen(es)/volume(s) S.P. páginas [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Sex Efficiency through Exercises: Physical Culture

      London: William Heinemann (Medical Books), 1933 Book. Near Fine. Hardcover. 1st Edition. xviii, pp 164 with 54 half tone photographic plates and a 'Cinematographic Supplement'. Sexologist Van De Velde's physical guidebook for women's pelvic exercises illustrated with 480 photographic flicker cards. Bound in shiny blue cloth with gilt lettering in very good condition and with the all important 'Cinematographic Supplement' present and in excellent condition. Van de Velde proposed that his exercises would assist 'women and those who help them (whether as doctors, midwives, nurses and gymnastic instructresses) in the full evolution and utilisation of the feminine sexual capacities and faculties... Thus, not only will the physical intimacy of marriage be much enhanced for both partners, but the maternal functions of woman - gestation and birth - will be relieved of much pain and fear.' Unsurprisingly Van de Velde's work was greeted with much hostility on first publication and his Ideal Marriage was placed on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum. An intricate piece of book-design, Sex Efficiency is uncommon in trade. Please contact Christian White at Modernfirsteditions if you would like more information about this book..

        Building the Bridge

      Sydney: Simmons Ltd, 1933. "MAKE Big Plans ; for little plans have no magic to stir men's blood and in themselves may never be realised. Make Big Plans ; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will never die, but long after we are gone will be a living thing, asserting itself with ever growing insistency. Remember that our sons and grandsons are going to do things that would stagger us. Let your Watchword be Order and your Beacon Beauty." Daniel H. Burnham The Plan is accomplished. The Bridge is built--the greatest Single-Arch in the World to-day. A landmark in the progress of our age--a symbol of faith in a young and virile nation. To the Engineer and Workman and to all those who have helped the Big Plan forward this book is respectfully dedicated. FOREWORD: "The Sydney Harbour Bridge, so long a dream, is to-day a bold and practical reality. A triumphant arch of steel, humanising our landscape in the Ideals of all true Australians, simplicity, beauty and service. It was a Big Plan ; the thoughts and strivings of many men. Its success lies in the loyalty of Engineers and Workmen to the Ideal of the Big Plan. Inch by inch, step by step, they built the Bridge, until to-day it is finished, a work of service, a thing of beauty, which will assert itself long after we are gone. In the following drawings, Mr. Curtis tells you something of the magnitude of the work that lay before the Builders. When an important stage in the construction had been reached, when the subject was "meat" for his pencil, whether by accident or design, he would invariably be seen, somewhere, "on the job." In these drawings are expressed the strength, the labour, the romance of a great undertaking." J.J.C. Bradfield. Signed first edition, limited to 400 copies; this copy is number 86. Bound in red, black and silver decorated boards with cloth spine, twelve black & white lithographs, one tipped-in colour lithograph, a fine copy.

        Three Publicity Stills from the Set of the 1933 Film Laughter in Hell

      Hollywood, CA: Universal, 1933. Very Good. Hollywood: [NP] 1933. Photographer unknown. Three original 8" x 10" black-and-white publicity photos taken on the Universal City set of the 1933 chain-gang drama film Laughter in Hell. Blue paper hand-typed descriptions mounted on verso of each photo; apparently for newspaper write-ups. Very Good overall. A few pieces of masking tape on verso, a few stains and some fairly light edge wear.Photo #1 (going from left to right in main product photo) shows Jim Tully, Irish-American ex-hobo-and-pugilist author of the book on which the film was based, hanging with star Pat O'Brien, known at the time as "Hollywood's Irishman in Residence." #2 shows former child-actor Tom Brown in stripes handling a pick on the set while background extras stare at the camera. "Take your pick" the jauntily-phrased verso caption begins.Photo #3 is the stand-out of the bunch, showcasing two lynched African-American convicts surrounded by their mourning comrades. As the verso caption states: "Just a good old fashioned lynching party-- and the honored guests are Director Edward Cahn, Pat O'Brien, Jim Tully and Clarence Muse. Snapped on the set of Universal's chain gang drama, 'Laughter in Hell' where the author of the human screenplay visited the actors recently." An institutional example of this photo appeared in Bauer and Dawidziak's recent Tully biography.A rare set of publicity stills from a pre-code chain-gang film with a frank depiction of the Southern racism and a broken criminal justice system that was presumed lost until recently.

Contains 250 sepia-toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 2.5" x 3.5" and 3.5" x 4.5" with some captions. Most pages are detached thus very good with near fine photographs.A photo album kept by a family between 1925 and 1933 with vacation photography as well as vernacular family home images. The early images show wintery scenes of dogs and children running through snow as well as landscape photographs of farms. There are photos of horseback riding, dogs running, and herds of sheep. Many of the photos show trips to Colorado with images of Pike's Peak, hiking, and snow capped mountains. One caption from a hike reads, "the view from Broadmore Hill, South of Cheyenne School." Other views are from Austin Bluff and Stage Road. The natural beauty of Colorado Spring's is seen throughout these photos with images of trees, lakes, creeks, and the various mountain roads. Interspersed throughout the album are photos of various family members posing around homes along with children playing. There are also photos of the family farm including workers and farm animals and views of various crops. Additionally there are portrait style images of a young woman and her friend posing around the farm. Others show the elderly matriarch of the family and her husband with grandchildren and animals. One interesting group of photos shows a man and a woman outside using a tree stump as a table and furiously typing on typewriters in some sort of typing contest. The family continued to visit Colorado annually through 1933 often enjoying the Colorado Springs area. A group of photos towards the end of the album have been combined to create a panoramic photo of the mountain ranges with captions labeling each peak. Besides farm work members of the family were also involved in medical professions, (a professional portrait photo of a woman in a full nurse uniform is also seen here), and the military, a photo of two navy men is also present.An extensive account of a farm family in the 1920s and 30s and their trips to Colorado.

        Steinlen - Chats et autres Betes. Dessins Inedits. Texte par Georges Lecomte

      Paris, Rey, 1933. Large quarto, [3]-203, [5] (last blank) pages (including the pictorial front wrapper) with approximately 175 illustrations plus 18 tipped-in plates (one in colour, 2 folding) and a complete suite of all the in-text illustrations bound in at the rear. Contemporary unsigned designer-binding of half morocco and marbled papered boards, top edge gilt, with the original front wrapper retained; gilt-lettered spine stylishly decorated with eight wide raised bands with gilt and brown rules and an art deco cat in brown silhouette; leather very slightly rubbed at the extremities; marbled paper lightly rubbed at a few high spots; essentially a fine copy. One of only 535 copies in three variants; this copy is out-of-series and does not strictly conform to any of them. However, it is closest to the 35 copies on 'Japon Imperial, contenant chacun une suite a part des dessins sur papier de Chine' (in this instance, the extra suite is printed on Arches paper). Whatever else it may be, it is undeniably a superb item in every respect.

        Prof. Dr. Joh. Ude in Glattfelden. Am 15. Jan. 1933". Privates Notizbuch mit einmontierten Zeitungsartikeln und hs. Eintragungen.

      Wohl Glattfelden, 1933. - 38 SS. und einige weiße Bll. sowie 15 SS. Typoskript. Privater Halbleinenband der Zeit. 8vo. Der vorliegende kommentierte Pressespiegel, zusammengestellt durch den sozialdemokratischen Schweizer Sekundarlehrer W. Fauser, entstand unter dem Eindruck eines von ihm selbst organisierten Vortrags des österreichischen Theologen Ude in Glattfelden (Kanton Zürich) am 15. Januar 1933, die eine starke Resonanz in der Tagespresse hervorgerufen hatte. Ude propagierte u. a. die Freiwirtschaftslehre Silvio Gesells zur Überwindung des Kapitalismus; nach 1938 war er ein entschiedener Gegner der NS-Herrschaft. 1951 kandidierte er für das Amt des österreichischen Bundespräsidenten. Fauser benutzte die erste Lage aus dem Büchlein "Das schöne Tier" (hg. von Friedrich Schnack, Schaubücher 6, Zürich 1929), die er überklebte und durch eigene weiße Blätter ergänzte; die sich in den "Wochenzeitung" und im "Volksfreund" entspinnende Kontroverse datierte und kommentierte er handschriftlich. Am Schluß lose eingelegt findet sich Fausers unpubliziertes Typoskript (mit eigenhändigen Überarbeitungen) "Schlagwörter! und leere Behauptungen contra Ude", ein Beitrag, den die bürgerliche "Wochenzeitung" als "zu lang" abwies. Ferner eingelegt findet sich die Ankündigung des "VII. Fach-Fortbildungskursus der Naturärzte-Vereinigung der Schweiz" (1933), außerdem die Visitenkarten zweier konservativer Zürcher Gelehrter, des Dr. iur. Charles Schüle und Dr. oec. publ. Wilhelm Meier.
