Se han tirado 95 ejemplares numerados de 1 a 95, 5 ejemplares de obsequio que llevan las letras A a D y 5 de colaboradores que llevan las letras E a I, todos impresos en papel Japón de las Manufacturas Imperiales. Acabóse de imprimir en Buenos Aires, en las prensas de Francisco A. Colombo, el XV de mayo del año MCMXXXV. Este ejemplar, que lleva el Nº 40, ha sido impreso para Alejandro Shaw. Fine printing in Argentina - first book by the Argentine Bibliophiles Society 4to; one of 105 copies on Japan paper; fine modern artistic leather, binding preserved in a case. MAGNIFICENTLY PRODUCED ILLUSTRATED EDITION OF THE GREAT ARGENTINE LITERARY CLASSIC PRINTED ON JAPANESE PAPER, LIMITED TO 105 COPIES. THIS IS THE FIRST BOOK TO BE PUBLISHED BY THE ARGENTINE BIBLIOPHILES SOCIETY. (Sociedad de Bibliófilos Argentinos). The illustrations are by Alfredo Guido. The Bibliophiles Society, that still exists, has published since this work over 30 books, all by renowned South American personalities. Domingo Faustino Sarmiento (1811-1888) was the first civilian president of Argentina (1868-74) after the adopted constitution of 1853. He had been a vigorous opponent of the absolutist governor Rosas, and spent many years in exile for opposing him. Facundo o Civilización y Barbarie en las pampas argentinas was written in 1845 by Sarmiento during his exile in Chile. He is a canonical figure of Spanish American literature. Aside from its literary value, this is a key historical work, in that it examines the political, social, and economic development of South America, its processes of modernization, its potential and culture. As indicated in the title, Sarmiento focuses on the conflicts that arose in Argentina immediately after Independence from Spain was achieved in 1816 within the framework of the opposing forces of civilization and barbarism. Facundo narrates the life of Juan Facundo Quiroga, a Gaucho military and political leader affiliated with the Federalist Party. He served as governor and caudillo of the Province of La Rioja during the period of civil wars in Argentina in the 1820s and 1830s. Throughout the text, Sarmiento explores the dichotomy between civilization and barbarism. As noted by Kimberly Ball, "The forces of civilization are equated with Europe, North America, the city, the Unitarios, and Generals Paz and Rivadavia" while "barbarism is identified with Latin America, Spain, Asia, the Middle East, the countryside, the Federalists, Facundo and Rosas." It is for this reason that Facundo exerted such a profound influence. * Only one copy on OCLC. 310 pp páginas [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Brigitte Reimann (* 21. Juli 1933 in Burg - + 20. Februar 1973 in Ost-Berlin) war eine bekannte deutsche Schriftstellerin. Sie hatte eine intensive Brieffreundschaft mit Christa Wolf. Die Abiturienten Recha, Nikolaus und Curt absolvieren im Kombinat SchwarzePumpe ein praktisches Jahr. Jung, mit den unterschiedlichsten familiären Hintergründen und durch eine Art von Dreiecksbeziehung miteinander verbunden, lernen die drei den Arbeitsalltag in ihrer Brigade kennen: Rohre walzen, Ventile schleifen, Schichtdienst, Überstunden, Versammlungen. Zusammengehalten werden die Arbeiter, der Student, der Schwererziehbare und die Abiturienten von einem engagierten und zupackenden Meister. Selbst Curt, dem durch seinen Selbstdarstellungsdrang die Eingliederung ins Kollektiv besonders schwer fällt, bleibt am Ende von so viel Einsatz nicht unberührt. Für alle drei Abiturienten wird das Jahr zur erneuten Reifeprüfung: Curt lernt für seine Fehler einzustehen, Recha übertritt die Schwelle vom Mädchen zur Frau und Nikolaus, der Maler, findet zur Porträtzeichnung und damit zu einem neuen Blick auf Menschen. Signierte Exemplare von Brigitte Reimann sind äußerst selten und werden fast nie angeboten!!

        [Title in Chinese and Japanese: Dong ya zhi bu shang biao hui kan - Trademark Office of East Asia.]

      [Nanjing & Shanghai: Shi ye bu shang biao ju, Liang you tu shu yin shua gong si [Liangyou Book Printing Co.], Minguo calendar 22,, 1933. Thick tall octavo (258 x 185 mm), c.2, 600 pages. Publisher's burgundy cloth, gilt lettering stamped on front cover, rebacked with the original gilt lettered spine laid down. Over 15,000 woodcuts and illustrations from photographs. Label of Chung Hwa Book Co., Ltd., Shanghai; old ownership stamps. Covers with minor edge-wear, some rubbing, occasional creasing, old splash-stain to fore-edge, but a very good copy with old ownership stamps. First edition of this rare and remarkably comprehensive illustrated registry of all legal trademarks, issued during China's "significant economic renaissance" of the 1930s (Ruixe Ran), the result of efforts by the Republic of China, under the Nationalist government of Chiang Kai-shek, to revive and modernize the Chinese economy by the passing of an updated Trademark Law in 1930. "The Nationalist government had a vision to modernize China's IP [intellectual property] system after taking power in 1928, but it too had failed entirely. The government enacted a trademark law in 1930, a copyright law in 1928 and a patent law in 1949. Nevertheless, these laws were not seriously implemented due to the eight-year anti-Japanese wars and a series of civil wars" (Guanghua-yu, ed., The Development of the Chinese Legal System: Change and challenges, 2011, p. 141). At this period China was in turmoil, with Japan controlling Manchuria (invaded in 1931 and run as the puppet state of Manchukuo from 1933) and the northern provinces of China (Chahar, Suiyuan, Shansi, Shantung), while other regions were under the sway of autonomous warlords. Despite this, China's economy stabilized and expanded considerably, with tremendous foreign investment from Japan, Great Britain, and the United States. Japanese influence is exemplified here in that the work includes Japanese trademarks used in China. This extraordinary and profusely illustrated registry – issued from Shanghai and the then Chinese capital of Nanking (Nanjing) - offers incomparable visual documentation of the thousands of trademarks, advertising labels, and packaging for a vast range of products, including colour dyes, paints, varnishes, printer's inks, toiletries, perfume, face creams, pharmaceuticals, drugs, metalwork, silks, cotton and other textiles, flour, alcohol, and a substantial section devoted to tobacco products (naturally a huge source of revenue). Against a backdrop of conflict in and around Shanghai and Nanking (following the Shanghai or 28 January Incident of 1932) very few copies of this edition survived and a much reduced version (of less than 900 pages) was issued in 1934. We have been unable to trace another copy of this 1933 edition in commerce or in British and Irish institutional libraries (Copac); OCLC locates one copy only, at the National Taiwan Library. A fascinating survival from an era of colossal upheaval in the making of modern China.

        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.

At night he wrote them up in his diaries, squatting in the sand by lamplight and hiding his work from his suspicious Arab escort. These journeys [.]won him high honour with the Royal Geographical Society, the British Museum, Kew Gardens, and academic societies all over the world. He was awarded the founder's gold medal of the Royal Geographical Society in 1920 and the Sir Richard Burton memorial medal of the Royal Asiatic Society in 1925.?

        The Empty Quarter being a description of the Great South Desert of Arabia known as Rub'al Khali.

      1933 - London, Constable & Company Ltd , 1933. 8vo. 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'.

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.

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."
