        Hand-Made Album Containing 60 Original Photographs of Adolf Hitler and His Inner Circle. Presented to Adolf Hitler on His Birthday (April 20, 1933), With Presentation Inscription From Erna and Heinrich Hoffmann

      N.p.: Heinrich Hoffmann, 1933. N.p.: Heinrich Hoffmann, 1933. An exquisitely-produced album of professional photographs by Hitler's close friend and personal photographer Heinrich Hoffmann. Of the sixty images collected here, only about ten appear in the on-line archive of the Bavarian State Library (which has collected and digitized over 20,000 of Hoffmann's photographs to date), and none appear in Hoffmann's published collections of propaganda photographs of the Thirties and Forties. These are in fact remarkably informal images, clearly not chosen for their propaganda value but rather for their intimate and personal quality; they show Hitler at his most relaxed, in the company of close friends, often on the grounds of his country retreat at Obersalzberg but also on vacation at the beach resort of Lambach and picnicking on the grounds of Bayreuth. Most of the photographs appear to have been taken between about 1929 and 1931, during the consolidation of Nazi Party power but before Hitler's elevation to the position of Reichschancellor. In addition to Hitler himself, who is seen in 24 of the photographs, many members of Hitler's Inner Circle appear here - most notably Joseph Goebbels, Hitler's closest friend and adviser during this period; Hermann Esser, editor of the Völkischer Beobachter; Julius Schreck, Hitler's chauffeur and later first Reichcommander of the SS; Obergruppenfuhrer Wilhelm Bruckner; Baldur von Schirach, leader of the Hitlerjugend; Financial Minister Franz Xaver Schwarz; photographer Heinrich Hoffmann and his wife Erna; and many others. & & But the one figure who is a constant presence in these photographs is Hitler's half-niece and lover, Angelica ("Geli") Raubal. Indeed, Geli is so prominent a feature of the album -- appearing in no fewer than 55 of the 60 images (and those in which she does not appear feature her mother, Hitler's half-sister Angela Raubal) -- that we are tempted to describe this as a memorial album to Geli, who had committed suicide in September, 1931 following what some contemporary accounts described as "a violent confrontation" with Hitler in his Munich residence.& & A sense of mystery has always surrounded Hitler's relationship with his niece, which began while she was still a teenager and eventually evolved into a full-scale love affair. By the age of twenty Geli had become a full-time resident of Hitler's Munich residence and an ever-present figure at gatherings of his inner circle. Rumors circulated about the incestuous relationship, but enough ambiguity remained that some historians - especially Hitler apologists - continue to maintain that the relationship, while close, remained chaste. The overwhelming evidence however points not only to a sexual relationship, but (based upon later statements by those who knew Geli well) a severely twisted and sadomasochistic one. A 1943 report for the US Office of Strategic Studies prepared by Walter Langer and others concluded that Hitler was subject to "an extreme form of masochism in which the individual derives sexual gratification from the act of having a woman urinate or defecate on him" (see Ronald Hayman, Hitler and Geli, NY: 1999). While the full extent of their sexual relations can never be known, there is no questioning the central place that Geli occupied in Hitler's life in the formative years of the Reich, nor the profound effect her death had upon Hitler's personality. In the words of Hitler's one-time confidant Ernst Hanfstaengl, "...I am sure that the death of Geli Raubal marked a turning point in the development of Hitler's character. This relationship, whatever form it took in their intimacy, had provided him for the first time in his life with a release to his nervous energy which only too soon was to find its final expression in ruthlessness and savagery. His long connexion with Eva Braun never produced the moon-calf interludes he had enjoyed with Geli and which might in due course, perhaps, have made a normal man out of him. With her death the way was clear for his final development into a demon, with his sex life deteriorating again into a sort of bisexual narcissus-like vanity, with Eva Braun little more than a vague domestic adjunct" (Hanfstaengl, The Missing Years, NY: 1957). & & A search of the Bavarian State Library finds only 42 photographs of Geli Raubal among the more than 20,000 images in its Hoffmann archive (including group portraits in which Geli turns up). A close comparison of these images with those in the current album reveals only eight duplications, leading us to conclude that this private album contains no fewer than 45 previously unknown images of Geli. Based on the same calculus, we conclude that approximately twenty of the images in which Hitler appears in the album are similarly unknown, or at least are unpublished and not available through the Hoffmann archive. This is not entirely surprising given the concerted attempt to erase public memory of the relationship between Hitler and his niece following her suicide (the Munich newspapers, for example, in announcing her death, made no mention of her relationship to Hitler). What is surprising is that, nearly two years after the event, Hitler's close personal friend and official photographer would present him with an album which would bring the memory of Geli so freshly and vividly to mind. If anything, this gives weight to Hitler's later pronouncement that Geli had been "the only woman he had ever loved," and somewhat countervails the suspicion, long held by scholars of the Reich (and popularized in Ron Hansen's 1999 novel Hitler's Niece), that Hitler himself murdered Geli in order to eliminate the potential threat of having his sexual perversions made public. & & While the circumstances surrounding the creation and presentation of this album can only be guessed at -- did Hitler request it? Was Hoffmann attempting to remind his friend of those "moon-calf interludes" which "might have made a normal man out of him"? -- we can say with certainty that the album fills a documentary gap in Hitler's biography at one of the most critical periods in the formation of his character and in the development of the Reich. Its discovery will provide a basis for re-examination of Hitler's relationship with his niece and of the psychological forces which led to the most widespread reign of terror in recorded history. & & PROVENANCE: This album was removed from Hitler's private residence at Obsersalzberg in the weeks following the surrender of German troops in 1945 - one of thousands of war trophies brought home by American G.I.s following the war. It has remained in the possession of the original owner's family until this time. Album of 21 leaves (18 used) containing 60 original silver-gelatin prints, each approx. 12cm x 8.5cm (4.5" x 3.5"), mounted three or four-to-a-page. Album bound in full crushed morocco; pastedowns with applied vellum panels, with inside front cover bearing a gilt-stamped presentation: "20.April.1933 / In Verehrung Und Dankbarkeit," above holograph inscription of "Erna u. Heinr. Hoffmann" (in Heinrich Hoffmann's hand). Horizontal scratch to front cover; joints lightly rubbed; contents generally fine. The date of the inscription, April 20th, 1933, was Hitler's 44th birthday.

Originalausgabe. - Selten. - Eines der bedeutendsten und drucktechnisch hervorragenden Fotobücher des 20. Jahrhunderts. - Brassai erinnerte sich später an seine nächtliche Rundgänge: 'Während meiner ersten Jahre in Paris, ab 1924, führte ich das Leben eines Nachtvogels, ging bei Sonnenaufgang schlafen, stand bei Sonnenuntergang wieder auf und durchquerte die Stadt vom Montmartre bis zum Montparnasse. Ich wurde Photograph, um alles, was mich an diesem nächtlichen Paris faszinierte, ja verzauberte in Bildern festzuhalten, obwohl ich bis dahin die Photographie nicht sonderlich beachtet, ihr sogar mißtraut hatte [...] meistens wanderte ich allein durch diese elenden, unheimlichen Viertel, die ich heute aus Furcht sicher nicht mehr zu besuchen wagte. Ab und zu drang ich, wer weiß von welchen Teufeln getrieben, in ein baufälliges Haus ein, stieg durch das düstere Treppenhaus hoch bis unter das Dach, klopfte an irgendeine Türe und riß mir gänzlich Unbekannte aus dem Schlaf, nur um die neue Aussicht zu entdecken, die mir Paris aus ihren Fenstern bot [...] Nachdem ich auf meiner ,Reise ans Ende der Nacht', durch die Schönheit des Bösen und den Zauber des Verderbten angezogen, die sichtbare Welt in Bildern festgehalten hatte, wollte ich in den inneren Kreis vorstoßen, hinter die Mauern, Fassaden und Kulissen sehen und die Bars, Kaschemmen, Nachtclubs, Stundenhotels, Bordelle und Opiumhölen kennenlernen. Unbedingt wollte ich in diese Welt am Rande der unseren eindringen, in diese verborgene, unheilvolle Welt der Verbrecher, der Ausgestoßenen, Schläger, Zuhälter, Huren, der Süchtigen und der Homosexuellen [...]ich hatte den Eindruck, in diesen schillernden Figuren am unteren Rand der Gesellschaft lebten die seit Jahrhunderten fast unveränderten Traditionen des Volkes dieser Stadt weiter.'

        Ein Kampf um Roehm

      Diessen/München Jos.C.Huber 1933. 0 S.. Vollständige Ausgabe im Original-Verlagseinband (Steifumschlag / Broschur / Kartoneinband im Format 14,5 x 22 cm) mit Rückentitel und 16 Seiten, Schrift: Fraktur. - Erstausgabe, EA, erste Auflage in mittlerer Erhaltung (Seiten an den Ecken feuchtigkeitsfleckig, Einbanddeckel außen angeschmutzt - hinten stärker -, sonst gut). - Aus dem Vorwort: "Ernst Röhm ist durch und durch Soldat. Am 28. November 1887 geboren, trat er 1906 nach abgeschlossenem Studium in das Kgl.Bayer.10.Inf.-Rgt König ein und zog als Adjutant des 1.Btl. in den Krieg. Schon nach zwei Monaten wurde er in den Kämpfen auf den Maas-Höhen durch einen Granatsplitter im Gesicht schwer verwundet. Noch nicht vollkommen wiederhergestellt, eilte er bereits im April 1915 wieder an die Front zu seinem Regiment zurück. Beim Sturm auf das Zwischenwerk Thiaumont, an der Ostfront von Verdun, wurde er am 23. Juni 1916 an der Spitze seiner Kompanie erneut schwer verwundet. Trotz 14 schwerer Wunden konnte er nicht untätig bleiben und tat während seiner Heilung Dienst im Bayerischen Kriegsministerium. Kurz darauf, zum dritten Mal im Feld, wurde er Generalstabsoffizier der 12.Bayer.Inf.-Div. und blieb bis Kriegsschluß bei dieser Verwendung. Als General von Epp sein Freikorps in Ohrdruff austellte, war Röhm wiederum als einer der ersten zur Stelle. Es folgte die Niederwerfung der spartakistischen Aufstände in München und im Ruhrgebiet. Die deutsche Freiheitsbewegung begann. Röhm und Hitler fanden sich, wurden Freunde und sind es geblieben. Als Adolf Hitler am 8.November 1923 die deutsche Erhebung verkündete, besetzte sein Kampfgefährte Röhm mit der Reichskriegsflagge das Wehrkreiskommando in München . . . Nach Ablauf seiner Haft folgte er dem ehrenvollen Ruf zur Reorganisation der bolivianischen Armee. Mitten in dieser Tätigkeit traf ihn das Telegramm des Führers mit der Bitte, sofort nach Deutschland zurückzukehren, um ihm in der Führung der braunen Armee zur Seite zu stehen. Aus der den Soldaten voll erfüllenden Tätigkeit, aus gesichertster, zu allen erdenklichen Ehren zwangsläufig führender Lebensstellung heraus eilte Röhm, diesem Ruf des Führers folgen, zurück nach Deutschland und wurde Chef des Stabes der SA . . .

        Marlborough: His Life and Times, full set of four British first edition, first printings in dust jackets

      London: George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd., 1933. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Very good plus/Very good . This is full set of four British first edition, first printings in first printing dust jackets. Winston Churchill's monumental biography of his great ancestor, John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough, was initially conceived a full 40 years before publication of the fourth and final volume. Churchill originally considered the idea of the biography in 1898, returning to it in earnest in 1928. Marlborough ultimately took 10 years of research and writing and is the most substantial published work of Churchill's "wilderness years" in the 1930s. The final volume was published on the eve of the Second World War in 1938. Richard Langworth says "To understand the Churchill of the Second World War, the majestic blending of his commanding English with historical precedent, one has to read Marlborough." The work was very well received, both critically and aesthetically. The first edition is a physically impressive production. The books measure 9.25 x 6.25 inches and are roughly 2 inches thick. Each is bound in plum cloth with beveled edges, the Marlborough coat of arms gilt on the front cover, and a gilt top edge. Moreover, each volume is profusely illustrated. Unfortunately, the plum cloth binding in Volumes I-III proved highly susceptible to sun fading. (A different, more fade-resistant dye was used in Volume IV.) Without the dust jackets, Volumes I-III are nearly always spine faded and jacketed first editions are now scarce. Particularly scarce are first printing dust jackets for Volumes I & II. We caution collectors to be wary of price-clipped dust jackets, as later impression Volume I & II dust jackets state either "2nd Impression" or "3rd Impression" printed next to the price on the lower front flap. No such problem applies to Volumes III & IV, which each had only a single printing.  This full, four-volume British first edition set features volumes in very good plus condition in very good or better dust jackets.   All four bindings are square, clean, and tight, retaining bright, unfaded color.  Shelf presentation is excellent, as only jacketed volumes can have; we note only a hint of sunning to the bottom spine edges of Volumes I & II.  The contents of all four volumes are crisp and bright, with age-toning evident only to the text block fore and bottom edges.  The books feel unread and we find no previous ownership marks.  Spotting is substantially confined to the prelims and fore and bottom text block edges of all four volumes.  The gilt top edges remain respectably and uniformly bright. The dust jackets are highly complete examples with minor wear at the spine ends, but no losses.  Although all four dust jackets are neatly price-clipped, Volumes I & II are nonetheless definitively first printing; the clipped portion of the front flaps is small and the part of the jacket flaps where either "2nd Impression" or "3rd Impression would be printed remains intact with no mention of any later printing.  All four dust jacket spines are modestly toned, but the light grey Volume I dust jacket is notable for retaining superior spine color to most surviving copies we see.  We note some scarring to a blank 1.25 x .75 inch portion of the Volume IV lower spine.  The Volume II jacket shows a similar, though less noticeable, scar to a blank portion of the Volume II upper front face, as well as some spotting to part of the front face.  All four dust jackets are fitted with new, removable, archival quality clear covers.  Bibliographic reference: Cohen A97.2(I-IV).a, Woods/ICS A40(aa); Langworth p.166.

"Ephrussi coupled his embryological concerns with a firm conviction that one must understand the role of genes in order to decipher embryological processes. He moved to Caltech in 1934 and stayed until 1935 to learn genetics within the intellectual empire of T.H. Morgan. This move was supported by the Rockefeller Foundation. During this period he conducted important work with George Beadle, who joined him in Paris in the autumn of 1935. There they produced results from experiments with Drosophila eye transplants. This became integral to the work of Beadle and Tatum, who were working with Neurospora, and from this research developed the 'one gene, one enzyme' hypothesis." Wikipedia. "George Wells Beadle (October 22, 1903 - June 9, 1989) was an American scientist in the field of genetics, and Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine Nobel laureate who with Edward Lawrie Tatum discovered the role of genes in regulating biochemical events within cells in 1958."

A nice copy with superb illustrations. Leighton, Clara Ellaline Hope [Clare], engraver, was convinced that wood-engraving was an art for the masses rather than for an élite, she Clare Leighton worked independently of the private presses. Her popular success was founded on a disciplined technique, powerful compositions, and a gravity of content and sincerity of feeling that derives from artists such as Samuel Palmer. ‘No one in our time’, wrote Eric Gill in Gollancz's publicity leaflet for The Farmer's Year, ‘has succeeded better in presenting the nobility of massiveness and breadth of life of the earth on a scale so grand.’ The artist herself, who possessed a gift for friendship with people of all races and classes, was influential as a teacher, lecturer, and author of two respected texts.
