        10000 Mark Belohnung..,.Ausmisten! Ausmisten" Wählt Nationalsozialisten!

      Several small chips to edges. Some wear. VG German Political History Buchdruckerei Popp [Würzburg] n.d. [1933] 29x23cm This is an original single-side anti-Semitic election campaign placard issued by the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, apparently at Würzburg, during the final phase of the 1933 election which resulted in Adolf Hitler taking power. Text reads: "10000 Mark Belohnung erhält von den in ihrer Ruhe gestörten jüdischen Ausbeutern diejenlige Partei, welche die gemeinsten und schmutzigsten / Lügen die Nationalsozialisten herausbringt. Wer Wahlkampf ist auf dem Höhepunkt! Die Dreckflut aller Parteien / hat genen die einzig allein für das schaffende Volk kämpfende Nationalsozialistische deutsche Arbeiterpartei wiederum eingesetzt. Mit der infamsten Hetze, mit den gemeinsten Lügen und Verdrehungen, mit den niedrigsten persönliochen Verleumdungen glauben die Parteien, an der Spitze wie immer die Sklarek-Partei-Deutschlands ihren eigenen Zerfall aufhalten zu können. Volksgenossen, warum? 12 Jahre wartet das deutsche Volk schon auf das versprochene Leben uin Schönheit, Freiheit u. Würde. Dyummheit und Verrat der Parteibuchbonzen konnte nur die Verelendung sä mtlicher Volksschichten gebären. Die Unfähigkeit derer, die regiert haben, ist bewiesen, schon dürch den Zusammenbruch der deutschen Wirtschaft, der über 3 Millionen Erwerblose zur Folge hat. Diese Tatsache soll durch ein systematisches Lügenmanöver verschleiert werden. Wie sich jeder Verbrecher bemüht, seine Schyukld aud anfere abzuwälzen, so wollen die Bankrottpolitiker des neudeutschern Systems sich der nationalsozialistischen Abrechnung entziehen...."

        Death in the Woods and Other Stories

      New York: Liveright, n.d. [1933]. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Near Fine. First Printing (no additional printings noted), and as such among the rarities of American publishing. The print run was interrupted after Liveright went into bankruptcy; few copies seem to have been released to the market (many were pulped) and so decent examples in jacket are quite uncommon. ABPC lists no copies at auction (save for this one) for the past 30 years. Tall, thick 8vo: [8],298pp. Publisher's coarsely woven tangerine cloth, spine stamped gilt in a black title block, top edge stained black, other edges untrimmed; price-clipped dust jacket. A Fine, square, unread copy; in a Near Fine jacket with several short closed tears and brief edge wear. Provenance: Bonhams Sale 20200 (Serendipity Books), Lot 1050. Rogers A5.& & & & After the resounding success of Winesburg, Ohio, Anderson went on to write 68 more short stories, publishing many of them in three important collections: The Triumph of the Egg (1921), Horses and Men (1923), and Death in the Woods (1933). The gothic stories in that final volume are a loose retelling of events from the narrator's childhood, as he attempts to explain a death and its relationship to other lives. A number of outstanding stories in these collections, including several of the sixteen appearing in Death in the Woods, "have suffered undeservedly from neglect." (Donald D. Kummings "Certain Things Last: The Selected Short Stories of Sherwood Anderson") Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves.

        Fallen Asleep While Young [Signed] [Nuorena nukkunut; The Maid Silja]

      London: Putnam, 1933. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good +/very good +. A Very Good + copy of the first UK edition, first printing (age toning to the spine and to the board edges, tiny pull to cloth under the "U" in "YOUNG" on the front board -- not affecting lettering, lower right corner of front board bumped), in a Very Good+ example of the rare dust jacket (spine mildly darkened, rubbing to edges, tiny chips and tears to the spine ends and panel corners, one quite small chip and one tiny chip to upper front panel, tiny tear to each of the upper and to lower edges of rear panel), SIGNED BY FRANS E. SILLANPAA on the title page; Frans Sillanpaa's tale of a Finnish farmer's daughter, an only child and the last green shoot of an old family tree. As her father, though hardworking, also is impractical and improvident, the farm becomes a shambles and, at her father's death, Silja must move on. She performs domestic work on various farms and, one after another, the farmers fall in love with her. She, however, becomes afflicted with an incurable disease which leads to an early death. Frans Eemil Sillanpaa won the 1939 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his deep understanding of his country's peasantry and the exquisite art with which he has portrayed their way of life and their relationship with Nature." "Fallen Asleep While Young" (published in America as "The Maid Silja", The Macmillan Company, 1933) is one of only a few of his works to have been translated to English [the others known to us being "Hurskas kurjuus" ("Meek Heritage") and Ihmiset suviyössä ("People in the Summer Night), all three of which are rather scarce to the market in first edition]. Along with Meek Heritage [Hurskas kurjuus (1919)] Fallen Asleep While Young is Sillanpaa's most important work and the tale was specifically cited by Per Hallström, Permanent Secretary of the Swedish Academy, in his speech presenting the Prize to Sillanpaa. It stands alone as his most-admired work and is the one which propelled him to international fame. Both the English and the American publications of this important novel are remarkably scarce and are, of course, rare in the dust jacket. Signed copies of any Sillanpaa's works in any language are quite scarce, and signed copies in English translation are absolute hens' teeth. A Very Good + copy of Frans E. Sillanpaa's most important and admired work, in the rare dust jacket, SIGNED BY FRANS E. SILLANPAA. RARE INDEED.

        Original Typescript of "Tribute to a Hero"

      1933. 23 pages, carbon typescript, with approximately three dozen changes made in Cain's hand, and more than a dozen additional small variations between this text and the published version. Published in American Mercury in November 1933, "Tribute to a Hero," is an autobiographical piece about the Cain family following the father's 1903 job change from St. John's College at Annapolis to Washington College at Chestertown, MD, and the culture shock that ensued from this move to a "hick place" from one of "smartness, competence, and class," a state of affairs that was partially redeemed by the actions of "a great man" (with an assist from Cain's father) on the occasion of a Washington College-Maryland Agricultural College football game. Published the year before his first novel, The Postman Always Rings Twice (and following Our Government in 1930, nonfiction based on Cain's column for New York World). Called "one of Cain's finest essays" by David Madden in James M. Cain: Hard-Boiled Mythmaker. Carbon paper a bit yellowed, some pencil rubbing, not affecting text; near fine. An early manuscript of a boyhood epiphany by a writer who gained a place in the literary pantheon for his famous first novel, which is still considered one of the high spots of American hard-boiled fiction. .

        Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas, The [First Issue]

      New York: Harcourt, Brace, 1933. First Edition, as stated. Hardcover. Fine/Near Fine+. First Issue (silver-blue cloth), one of 5400 copies ("no known breakdown between the [three] various issues"—Wilson). 8vo: [8],310pp, with frontispiece and 15 further photographs. Publisher's silver-blue cloth, spine and upper cover stamped gilt, top edge stained silver-gray; in an unglazed pictorial dust jacket (price-clipped) printed in black and orange, featuring a photo by Man Ray (which is repeated as the frontispiece). A Fine, unread copy, square, tight and unmarked, in a better than Near Fine jacket with brief edge wear, slight toning to spine, few stray spots on back panel. Haas & Gallup XXI. Wilson A20a. From May to August 1933, several chapters of The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas appeared in the Atlantic Monthly. The book was not available until August, and in the United States the first printing sold out by August 22, nine days before the official publication date. At the age of 59, Stein had become a popular success. As she explained in Everybody's Autobiography (1937): "Well anyway it was a beautiful autumn in Bilignin and in six weeks I wrote The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas and it was published and it became a best seller . . . I bought myself a new eight-cylinder Ford car and the most expensive coat make to order by Hermes . . . I had never made any money before in my life and I was most excited. "Gertrude Stein's life-long companion, Alice B. Toklas, is the narrator of this book written by Stein, which describes their life together in Paris from Alice's point of view. Thus, The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas is not, in fact, Alice B. Toklas's autobiography; instead it is Gertrude Stein's idea of what such a book might look like. . . . [It] can also be described as a selective history of artistic and literary developments in Paris in the 1910s and 1920s, [with] witty stories of how Stein and her brother Leo began to collect early paintings by Paul Cézanne, Henri Matisse, and Pablo Picasso . . . first-hand accounts of numerous social gatherings, including the famous banquet for Rousseau given by Picasso and his wife . . . [and, in] one frequently cited story, Alice explain[ing] that, at a dinner party with many of the well know artists in Paris at the time, 'After a while I murmured to Picasso that I liked his portrait of Gertrude Stein. Yes, he said, everybody says that she does not look like it but that does not make any difference, she will, he said.' . . .

      Tuskegee, AL, 9 April 1933. Letter. Normal creases from folding. About Fine. Fine 2-page SIGNED letter on the front and rear of a sheet of Tuskegee Institute letterhead: @225 words to a student addressed as "My very own precious boy, Mr. Davis." A typically effusive letter but with some scientific content as well. In part: "Mr. Ford had decided not to push the project he wanted me to look over.... I have what they need worked out in the laboratory. I want them to see it. I cannot take it all up there." Henry Ford and Carver became friends during the course of the work Carver did for him in using plant weed to produce synthetic rubber and in developing a plastic material from soybeans that Ford used in parts of his automobile. Carver concludes, "Dear, the coconut (cocus nucifera) is propagated almost wholly from the seed, (the nut itself) the young plants come out from the two little eye like spots. The nuts grow in bunches similar to grapes from 12 to 15 in a bunch, at the top of the tree. I dreampt that we were traveling together last night, it seemed to be in some foreign country. I could not tell where." Carver of course is best known for his discoveries of the many products that could be made from peanuts, 325 to be exact, including milk, cheese, instant coffee, printer's ink, vinegar, dyes, soap, and wood stains. He was born a slave and as an infant was stolen and ransomed in exchange for a racehorse.

[From the library of the naturalist and conservationist Richard Fitter, whos was a member of PEP for four of its early years.]Political and Economic Planning (PEP) was a British policy think tank, formed in 1931 in response to Max Nicholson's article A National Plan for Britain published in February of that year in Gerald Barry's magazine The Week-End Review. The original members included Nicholson and Barry, the zoologist Julian Huxley, the agronomist Leonard Elmhirst, the financier Sir Basil Blackett, the civil servants Dennis Routh and Sir Henry Bunbury, the research chemist Michael Zvegintzov, and Israel Sieff, a director of Marks & Spencer. Sieff was Chairman in the 1930s, followed by Elmhirst in 1939 and by Nicholson in 1953. It was a non-governmental planning organisation financed by corporations. This prolific organisation was influential in the formation of the National Health Service, World War II and post-war planning, and the development of the African colonies. After the war it shared the offices of The Nature Conservancy in Belgrave Square, London, producing reports such as Opportunities in Industry (1957) and Advisory Committees in British Government (1960). In 1978 PEP merged with the Centre for the Study of Social Policy (CSSP), and became the Policy Studies Institute (PSI). [VERY HEAVY - POSTAGE WILL NEED TO BE INCREASED.].
