      Garden City: Doubleday, Doran and Company, 1933. 8vo. 222 pp. Photographic frontispiece and 30 black-and-white photographic plates by William A. Bradford and other photographers. Original blue cloth, lettered in white, decorated endpapers. Two pale virtually imperceptible rings on front cover, slightest wear at extremities, generally a very good copy without the jacket. Early reprint of Beston's 1928 classic of nature writing. PRESENTATION COPY, INSCRIBED on the front free endpaper: "For Willard Shepard Jr. with the warm good wishes of his friend Henry Beston." Sheppard was born in Quincy and raised in Braintree. He was a 1935 graduate of Thayer Academy, and a 1939 graduate of Harvard College. Beston's meditation on seasons spent living on the dunes of Cape Cod in his 20x16 foot beach cottage, the "Fo'castle," have influenced generations of fellow naturalists. Rachel Carson credited him as the only author who influenced her work. Oft repeated is his observations that "We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals.".

        On Ancient Central-Asian Tracks. Brief Narrative of Three Expeditions in Innermost Asia and North-Western China

      London: Macmillan, 1933. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Octavo, pp. xxiv, 342, with 17 colored plates, colored folding map, and numerous black and white illustrations from photographs, including several folding panoramas. Bound in original brick red cloth with gilt medallion on upper board, top edge gilt. Abrasion to front pastedown where a bookplate was removed, minor rubbing to front board and corners, small scuff mark on spine. No dust jacket. Stein's great achievement, over the course of three expeditions to the Central Asia (1900-01, 1906-8, and 1913-16), "was to establish the existence of a hitherto lost civilization along the Silk Route in Chinese central Asia....[He] was the first archaeologist to discover evidence of the spread of the Graeco-Buddhist culture of north-west India across Chinese Turkestan and into China itself. Excavating the lost cities of the Silk Road, he found wooden, leather, and paper documents, painted wall panels, sculpture, coins, textiles, and many domestic objects....His search for sites and ancient routes took him deep into the Taklamakan and Lop deserts, from Keriya in the south to Turfan in the north, from Kashgar in the west to Tunhuang (Dunhuang) in the east, across many thousands of miles. Stein's best-known find came at Tunhuang in 1907, during his second expedition, when he reached the Caves of the Thousand Buddhas. Discovering thousands of manuscripts, paintings, and textiles walled up in a room in one of the caves, he bribed the custodian to part with many of them. Experts later found them to date from the fifth to tenth centuries AD. They included votive banners, Buddhist texts, and early secular works in a wide variety of scripts and languages, and a large, block-printed roll, dating from AD 868, which proved to be the world's oldest known printed book, a copy of the popular Buddhist work The Diamond Sutra" (DNB). This book offers a succinct account of all three expeditions for the general reader, along with a survey of the history and geography of the region.

        Tillie and Gus [Don't Call Me Madam] (Original screenplay for the 1933 film)

      Los Angeles: Paramount, 1933. Second Script for the 1933 film. Rubber-stamped on the front wrapper, "FILE COPY / RETURN TO SCRIPT DEPT. / PARAMOUNT STUDIO - HOLLYWOOD," and "1837 / MASTER FILE." The film's original title, "Don't Call Me Madam," is present on the front wrapper, crossed through, with the new title "Tillie and Gus" written in holographic ink above it. Based on a short story entitled "Don't Call Me Madame," by Rupert Hughes, about Tillie and Gus Winterbottom (Alisone Skipworth and W. C. Fields) and their tribulations involving a deceased family member's inheritance. Even with the ensuing events, including a riverboat race and a baby-toting bathtub that floats downstream reminiscent of Moses in a basket, the film is remembered as one of Fields' "sleepers," one less punchy than others. "Tillie and Gus" was one of three pairings of Skipworth and Fields, the others being "Six of a Kind" (1934) and "If I Had a Million" (1932). Tall, side stitched salmon self wrappers, noted as SECOND SCRIPT on the front wrapper, rubber-stamped copy production No. 1837, dated March 10, 1933, with credits for screenwriters Jones, McNutt, and Harris. Title page integral with the first page of the script. 137 leaves, mimeograph on salmon colored stock. Pages about Near Fine, rear wrapper detached but present, else wrappers Very Good plus.

        An account of the fighting between Chinese and Japanese armies in Jehol during March 1933 together with comments thereon, by G.J. Yorke

      [China, probably at Shanghai: Self-published], 1933. Very Good. Complete. 95 mimeographed pages bound at the top by two steel brads. Pages are toned, but supple. Some foxing on the first and last few leaves; heaviest on the blank cover. The brads have some rust. An exceptionally detailed and well-written,account of the military battles in Jehol between Japan and China that took place in 1933, four years before the official start of the Second Sino-Japanese War.This appears to be the only firsthand account of the fighting by a Westerner. The campaign, known as Changchen Kangzhan ("The Defense of the Great Wall") in Chinese, lasted for five months from early January to the end of May. During the campaign, Japanese forces overwhelmed China's National Revolutionary Army and captured the Inner Mongolian province of Jehol (Rehe) which they then incorporated into the puppet state of Manchukuo, extending Manchukuo's border to the Great Wall. The truce forced China to acknowledge the loss of Rehe, accept the independence of Manchukuo, and demilitarize a 100 kilometer wide zone south of the Great Wall.Gerald Yorke was a famed English cricketer who may have been commissioned as a major in the British intelligence service. He was a member of Aleister Crowley's inner circle of magic and served as Crowley's personal representative to the Dalai Lama. Yorke also traveled as a special correspondent for Reuters throughout China in ways described as "eccentric to the point of lunacy" often in the company of an "ex-bandit" and "watched Far Eastern History being made . . . at uncomfortably close quarters," according to The Spectator, January 10, 1936. During this period, Yorke probably also worked as an agent for the gigantic, Chinese-based British conglomerate, Matheson & Co. Ltd. Scarce. OCLC locates no copies, although there is a copy at the Royal Institute of International Affairs (Chatham House), and two copies (once held in the Matheson Chairman's strongroom) located at the Cambridge University Library. Thus this is apparently the fourth known copy.

        Urne Buriall and the Garden of Cyrus... with Thirty Drawings by Paul Nash. Edited with an Introduction by John Carter.

      Limited Edition, no. 39 of 215 copies on J. Barcham Green's handmade paper. Folio, xx, 146 pp, 14 full-page plates and 18 in the text, collotypes coloured through stencils, bound by Nevetts Ltd to a design by Paul Nash in vellum with a large inlay of brown morocco with two vellum inlays and tooled with a gilt design of an urn and a lozenge, the lower cover with the same design but substituting brown morocco for the vellum inlays, a.e.g., inscribed in ink on f.f endpaper "Tom Balston /John Carter / 1933", preserved in the original cloth slip case, fine condition.These illustrations represent the crowning achievement of the Curwen Press's use of the pochoir technique and Urne Buriall is widely accepted as Paul Nash's masterpiece in book illustration. It is one of the finest illustrated books produced in 20th century England. It was published during the height of the depression when there was little market for de-luxe editions and consequently very few copies were sold. The rest remained in unbound sheets until, in 1950, Desmond Flower took them to Stanley Bray of Sangorski & Sutcliffe to be bound to Nash's original design. The original Nevetts binding is exceedingly rare; auctions records for the last 30 years show eighteen Sangoski & Sutcliffe bindings but only one by Nevetts.

        [RADIO PRISON]

      Hand-made congratulatory charter. [Leningrad: 1st correctional labor colony, 1933]. 45x30 cm. Hand-written, watercolor. The charter was made by the prisoners of LFZITK #1 on the 16th anniversary of the Revolution. In the colony there was a radio workshop presumably consisting of engineers and workers of the radio industry. In this 'sharashka' they made radio equipment. We don't know the number of people involved, but there are 19 signatures at the bottom of the charter, some of the names can be identified: Gusev, Nilov, Dvornikov, Panov, Andreev, Glazdorev, Samsonov. The note in pencil says that the charter's design made by the prisoners as well. The monogram 'B.N.' stands in the right bottom corner. The charter gives us the opportunity to glimpse into life of prisoners of Stalin era pre-1937. In the text signed by the chairperson of the group some bizarre inconsistencies can be noticed. It was addressed to Georgy Borisovich Metlin who was managing the group, but his status was not mentioned. He's been congratulated with the anniversary of the Revolution, but addressed as 'gospodin' instead of 'tovarishch' - the address, that was heavily associated with the pre-Revolutionary bourgeoisie. In the second paragraph prisoners wished that under Metlin's guidance they could provide the radio devices for the Soviet Union to help cultural building of the socialism. The year of 1933 could be considered the year when Soviet radio started: although 'Radioperedacha' was broadcasting newspaper articles starting from 1924, only in 1933 the all-Union radio-channel Radio-1 was created in Moscow. It is possible that the radio prisoners of LFZITK #1 was creating the equipment for that occasion.

      NY: The Century Co, 1933. Cox, Palmer. Octavo. (x), 246pp. Copiously illustrated by Palmer Cox. This was the first adventure of the Brownies written in prose, and which is advertised as having "a detailed, connected story, with a beginning, a middle and an end." A later issue, with the text, binding, and dust jacket all produced at different times. The disparate dates are typical of the time, as publishers contracted with different printers over time as they moved stock. Text block is the original 1918 first edition sheets. Bound in buff cloth, with the title and author's name to both spine and upper cover in dark blue; publisher printed on tail of spine as "Appleton Century." The Century Company merged with D. Appleton & Company in 1933. In dust jacket, lettered in dark blue, with publisher as "The Century Co." The back of the dust jacket advertises Century Juveniles, all of which were published in 1925, including the last of the original Brownie books, "The Brownies in Fairyland." This copy is in fine condition, with an unusually fine dust jacket. To nitpick, book has short repaired tear to front free fly leaf, light foxing to edge of text block, and a bit of browning in the gutter from acidic adhesive in the binding. Dust jacket shows only light tanning, infinitesimal chips to corners, and four small tears, each clean and less than 1/2 inch in length. A remarkably fine copy of this later Brownie title, rarely seen with a dust jacket in such fine condition.

        Bodywhine. A Treatise on the Jardinian Theory. Cartoons by R.W. Blundell

      Rigby, Adelaide 1933 - Oblong folio, 40 pages (including the covers) with illustrations on 24 pages (16 are full-page) and the front cover. Two-colour pictorial card covers recently reattached, with the spine reinforced on the verso; an excellent copy of an absolute rarity. 'The Book has been written for the new regime of cricket; the batter, bruise and bust cricket, which has been thrust upon us. This travesty of an erstwhile noble sport demands new techniques to master it . . . We find after years of research that all previous books on cricket dealt mainly with batting, bowling, fielding and records. It is not now sufficient to wield a polished bat, to execute a classic leg-glance or a neat on-drive' - you get the drift. The delicious irony is that this copy has the contemporary ownership details of a young Jeff Pash (1916-2005), then aged about 17. A few years later, in 1939, he was awarded the Magarey Medal as the 'Fairest and Most Brilliant' player in the South Australian National Football League.
