        Art et Science. Conference faite a Lodz, Pologne, le 28 avril 1932 pour le Grupa Sztuki Noweczesnej et a Stuttgart, Wurtemberg, le 6 mai 1932 pour le Kunstgebande

      Editions Moly-Sabata, Sablons (Isère) 1933 - First edition. Presentation copy, inscribed by Albert Gleizes. In publisher's printed wrappers. 109, (3) p. Inscribed first edition of the transcript of Gleizes' lectures on the relation between art and science. Albert Gleizes (1881-1953) was the co-founder and one of the most important representatives of synthetic cubism. Besides his career as a painter, he was also a theorist of Cubism and one of the first French advocates of non-representational painting. He founded the artist's colony Moly-Sebata, named after the house that gave a home to it in Sablons, in 1927. In the 1920s and 1930s, he devoted much of his energy to writing and worked on a comprehensive theory of the history of art and the evolution of modern art. In his works, he discussed twentieth-century painting in the light of the changes which have occurred in other disciplines, such as in the field of mathematics and the physical sciences. He gave lectures about his theories throughout Europe. His 1933 book, Art et Science contains the transcripts of the lectures he gave on a tour in Poland and Germany. Artistically restored. In very good condition. In publisher's printed wrappers First edition. Presentation copy, inscribed by Albert Gleizes. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Tainstvennaia natsiia (Iaponiia) [The mysterious nation - Japan; An Unknown Nation]

      Harbin: Mech Gedeona, 1933. Octavo (20 × 14 cm). Original printed wrappers; 119 pp. Very good; text evenly toned due to stock; very discrete repairs to spine extremities. Russian translation of this 1933 work by Nakada, a Japanese protestant minister and the first bishop of the Japan Holiness Church. Influenced by the Christian Zionist William E. Blackstone and Nicholas McLeod, Nakada argued that the Japanese were descended from the ten lost tribes of Israel and that Israel would be restored through the Japanese. Nakada's theory was used, in part, to justify the nationalist and militaristic discourse of the Japanese Empire prior to World War II. Nakada was one of the most influential evangelists in the 1920s, who also toured the United States, but his controversial views later led to a schism in the Holiness Church. Scarce: KVK, OCLC show the copies at Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin, Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, Holy Trinity Orthodox Seminary, and Hebrew Union College (with just two copies outside Japan, the original English edition is apparently equally scarce).

        The World of To-Morrow. A Junior Book of Forecasts.

      Denis Archer 1933 - FIRST EDITION, 24 plates on 'Diophane' paper, a few of these a little browned to borders and off-setting, one with a short crack at inner margin, pp. 163, crown 8vo, original quarter yellow cloth with translucent 'Rhodoid' boards using the '"Neo-Nevett Tape-Slot" principle', the boards with overlapping fore-edges (that to upper board a little chipped at head), some minor spotting to edges, very good. A work aimed at 'Boys and Girls who would like to know the Future' and covering a wide variety of subjects in relation to that pursuit - H.G. Wells is acknowledged as the primary influence, and the author had earlier produced the 'Junior Outline of History' in the same vein. The book's construction is celebrated on the rear cover, and succeeds in giving the book a futuristic look and feel - although the passage of time has revealed it to be a more fragile creature than its creators supposed. The present example has mostly escaped the ravages of time.

Original green cloth, spine lettered in red; pp. xxiv, 433; illustrations from photographs, 3 folding maps; binding a little marked, large folding map with a few old repairs, internally a very good copy, from Harrods' circulating library (blind-stamp inside rear cover). First edition, in the secondary binding, bu to the nrown cloth more commonly found. Philby's account of his journeys across the so-called 'Empty Quarter', the desert region at the heart of the Arabian peninsular, has become a classic of the travel literature. Though not in fact the first to cross the Rub'al Khali - Bertram Thomas had beaten him to that in 1931 - Philby undertook the more arduous traverse and, in Wilfrid Thesiger's opinion, his should be regarded 'as the greater of the two'.

        Extra--Rolph Justifies Lynching. Led Hanging, Boy Boasts--The Call Bulletin, San Francisco, Monday, November 27, 1933--With a Real Photo Postcard of Thurmond and Holmes Lynching

      1933 - Newspaper and Real Photo Postcard documenting the public lynching of convicted kidnappers, Thomas Thurmond and John Holmes, on November 26th, 1933 in San Jose, California. Newspaper headline is "Rolph Justifies Lynching. Led Hanging, Boy Boasts" and includes many large photographs of the lynch mob; newspaper is paginated A-D, 2-12, 15-30, measures 21 1/2" tall by 17" wide, front page is a pale pink with black lettering, interior leaves are toned newsprint with one interior leaf being pale pink; b&w, real photo postcard depicts Thurmond, partially clothed, and Holmes, unclothed, hung from a tree with onlookers nearby and measures 3 1/2" tall by 5 1/2" wide. Newspaper is in good condition with heavy wear to spine, small holes where once bound on spine, 1" closed tear in middle of spine, affecting content, moderate chipping at fore edge and heavy toning throughout; Real Photo Postcard is in very good condition with light creasing to top edge, light wear at corners and light soiling on verso. The gruesome San Jose lynching stemmed from the kidnapping and murder of Brooke Hart, the son of a local department store owner. Thomas Thurmond and John Holmes confessed to the kidnapping and murder and threats of lynching the two men began at once. As a lynch mob started to form, Governor Rolph was called upon to send the National Guard to keep the prisoners safe. He refused. Thurmond and Holmes were dragged from the Santa Clara County Jail by the angry mob and were hung from a tree in St. James Park. Afterwards, Governor Rolph justified the San Jose lynching saying it was "a fine lesson to a whole nation. There will be less kidnaping in the country now. They made a good job of it."

        Song of the Eagle [The Beer Story] (Original screenplay for the 1933 film, producer Harry Joe Brown's presentation copy, with stills and notations throughout)

      Los Angeles: Paramount, 1933. Draft script for the 1933 film "Song of the Eagle," seen here partially under the early working title "The Beer Story." Presentation copy belonging to uncredited producer Harry Joe Brown, with his name in gilt titles to the front board, presumably gifted to Brown by prop man William Carr, as the script itself has Carr's ownership name in holograph pencil on the title page. Throughout the script are Carr's notations, accompanied by 17 black-and-white film stills on tipped-in leaves.Otto Hoffman (Jean Hersholt) and his sons, Bill (Richard Allen) and August (George Meeker), own a successful brewery, until August dies in World War I and Prohibition forces the brewery to close. The Hoffman's brew a "near-beer" beverage to keep the business out of bankruptcy, but soon the brewery is overcome by gangsters, and Otto is killed for refusing to sell out. Bill is forced to break the bad news to his mother, Emma, who in a fit of loss and rage, kills the lead gangster.The script was written in early 1933, the same year Prohibition was repealed, and the "near-beer" brewed by the Hoffman's foreshadows the 3.2 percent beer (thought to be too low an alcohol concentration to be intoxicating) and wine, authorized for legal sale by the Cullen-Harrison Act, signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on March 22, 1933. The Twenty-first Amendment was fully ratified on December 5, 1933, repealing Federal laws enforcing Prohibition. "Song of the Eagle," like the same year's "The Little Giant" with Edward G. Robinson, would be one of the last films made about Prohibition before its repeal. Brown full sheepskin boards with gilt titles. Distribution page present, with receipt removed. Title page present, dated February 1933, with credits for screenwriters Towne and Baker, director Murphy, and producers Rogers and Brown. 130 leaves, mimeograph, with black and white publicity photos laid in throughout. Very Good.

        THE LAMENTATIONS OF JEREMIAH

      Montgomeryshire, Wales: Gregynog Press, 1933. No. 130 OF 250 COPIES, one of 110 in this binding. This is a sparkling copy of what Harrop calls "one of the most spectacular books to come from this or any other press." It was designed and illustrated by Blair Hughes-Stanton (1902-81), who studied at the school of Leon Underwood at Hammersmith and had a long and productive career producing sophisticated woodcuts as an avant-garde artist.

The press was founded in 1922 by two spinster sisters, Gwendoline (1882-1951) and Margaret (1884-1963) Davies, using a substantial inheritance from their industrialist grandfather; it produced 42 works between 1923 and 1942, eight of them in Welsh.

        Twelve Days.

      London: Arthur Barker Ltd.,, [1933]. With a foreword by B. H. Liddell Hart, and eight drawings by Stanley Cursiter. Octavo. Original black buckram, titles gilt to spine and front, top edge black. Colour plates by Cursiter. Spine somewhat rolled, very light rubbing to ends and corners, light spotting to edges and occasionally within, front hinge just split at the tail, but a very good copy. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper to one of his company officers, "To George Hall, with every good wish and in memory of so many happy days spent together in 1916-1917 from Sidney Rogerson, Nov 14th 1933". Hall was one of Rogerson's two company officers, and is ever-present in the text - he is introduced on page 4: "George Hall was a very different type. Whereas Mac and I were in our very early twenties, he was over thirty - a real Yorkshireman, stubborn, stolid, and cheerful. After many years of service in the ranks of the regiment he had been commissioned, and made a very conscientious, dependable officer." Liddell Hart notes in his foreword that the book "deals with the 'fag-end' of the Battles of the Somme in 1916..." but "recreates the normal atmosphere of a Battalion in war more truly than anything else I have read.

        Song of the Eagle [The Beer Story] (Original screenplay for the 1933 film, producer Harry Joe Brown's presentation copy, with stills and notations throughout)

      Los Angeles: Paramount, 1933. Draft script for the 1933 film "Song of the Eagle," seen here partially under the early working title "The Beer Story." Presentation copy belonging to uncredited producer Harry Joe Brown, with his name in gilt titles to the front board, presumably gifted to Brown by prop man William Carr, as the script itself has Carr's ownership name in holograph pencil on the title page. Throughout the script are Carr's notations, accompanied by 17 black-and-white film stills on tipped-in leaves. Otto Hoffman (Jean Hersholt) and his sons, Bill (Richard Allen) and August (George Meeker), own a successful brewery, until August dies in World War I and Prohibition forces the brewery to close. The Hoffman's brew a "near-beer" beverage to keep the business out of bankruptcy, but soon the brewery is overcome by gangsters, and Otto is killed for refusing to sell out. Bill is forced to break the bad news to his mother, Emma, who in a fit of loss and rage, kills the lead gangster. The script was written in early 1933, the same year Prohibition was repealed, and the "near-beer" brewed by the Hoffman's foreshadows the 3.2 percent beer (thought to be too low an alcohol concentration to be intoxicating) and wine, authorized for legal sale by the Cullen-Harrison Act, signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on March 22, 1933. The Twenty-first Amendment was fully ratified on December 5, 1933, repealing Federal laws enforcing Prohibition. "Song of the Eagle," like the same year's "The Little Giant" with Edward G. Robinson, would be one of the last films made about Prohibition before its repeal. Brown full sheepskin boards with gilt titles. Distribution page present, with receipt removed. Title page present, dated February 1933, with credits for screenwriters Towne and Baker, director Murphy, and producers Rogers and Brown. 130 leaves, mimeograph, with black and white publicity photos laid in throughout. Very Good.

Keating / avec mes bonnes pensees / Aspen 6.7.49 / Albert Schweitzer / Helene Schweitzer." Bound in the publisher's original gilt stamped green cloth, spine slightly sunned, head and foot of spine fine, inner and outer hinges fine, a VERY GOOD copy, housed in a 1/4 red morocco open ended slipcase, raised bands, gilt lettered spine. From the estate of the Rev Dr. Robert H. Schuller. Inscribed copies of this title are quite scarce and we have not been able to find a single copy signed by both Albert and Helene.

He and his wife arrived on June 28, and departed on July 22, 1949. On July 6 they were in Aspen CO. Albert and Helene stayed in a house on Walter Paepcke's estate in Aspen who was central to the organization of the Goethe Convocation. He gave a lecture at 9 PM in the tent amphitheater, speaking in French to the largest audience of the festival. A Dr. Ross acted as Schweitzer's interpreter.
