        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. Although he was encouraged to make his expressive, sometimes even savage, images look more like those of Eric Gill, he resisted and successfully established his unique personal style as an illustrator. From 1930 through 1933, Hughes-Stanton worked for the Gregynog Press in Wales, helping to design text layout, providing woodcut illustrations, and designing bindings. 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. Cave says that the books printed by the Gregynog Press "more than bear comparison with the work of any other private press," and "in the design and execution of bindings, the Gregynog Press was far superior to any, the Doves Press included.". 390 x 255 mm. (15 1/4 x 10"). [15] leaves. No. 130 OF 250 COPIES, one of 110 in this binding. Fine original dark slate blue Oasis morocco, device in blind on front cover, blind titling on front cover and spine. In the original paper slipcase. Wood engraved title with device, and 21 wood engravings in the text, five of them full-page chapter openings, by Blair Hughes-Stanton.

        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.

        CENTRAL VEREIN ZEITUNG. BLÄTTER FÜR DEUTSCHTUM UND JUDENTUM : ORGAN DES CENTRAL-VEREINS DEUTSCHER STAATSBÜRGER JÜDISCHEN GLAUBENS. VOL XII, NR 32 (AUG 10, 1933)- VOL XIII, NR 52 (DEC 28 1934). UNBROKEN RUN OF 72 WEEKLY ISSUES FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE NAZI PERIOD

      Berlin : Central-Verein,(1933-34). 1st edition. Period cloth. Large Foilo (Full size newspaper), generally 8 pages per issue. Loaded with photos. The Central Verein Zeitung ran 17 volumes before being shut down following Kristallnacht in November of 1938. "The Centralverein deutscher Staatsbürger jüdischen Glaubens...(Central Association of German Citizens of Jewish Faith) was founded by German Jewish intellectuals on 26 March 1893 in Berlin, with the intention of opposing the rise of antisemitism in the German Empire....The CV's aim was to unify German citizens of Jewish faith, to fight for the Jews' rights as citizens and to combat rising antisemitism. Commitment to the German Nation was an important part of the CV's agenda - the members saw themselves primarily as German citizens with their own religion. Consequently, the CV repudiated Zionism.Beginning in 1922, the CV published a weekly newspaper, called 'C.V.-Zeitung' (C.V.-Newspaper) and continued fighting the rising antisemitic threat. Through publications and conversations with the President of Germany Paul von Hindenburg and economic leaders the CV tried to call attention to the threat. In 1926 there were approximately 60,000 members.In 1928 the 'Büro Wilhelmstrasse' (Wilhelmstrasse Office) was created with instrumental support of Alfred Wiener. It documented Nazi activities and issued anti-Nazi materials until 1933, when Hitler came to power. During the Nazi era, the CV was forced to change its name several times. From 1936 onwards it was called 'Jüdischer Central Verein' (Jewish Central Association). After the Kristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass or November Pogrom) in 1938 the CV had to stop publishing its newspaper and the association was prohibited a short time later" (Wikipedia, 2017). Though microfilms/digital exist, hardcopies are scarce, with OCLC listing only the National Library of Sweden with holdings. Paper brown and fragile as expected, especially at outer margins, but paper remains usable and displayable. Binding likewise remains solid. Good Condition thus. (Ger-60-1)

        Walters, Curtis- Original Study Design for Binding] Original Maquette for Hamlet

      - This is the original mosaic pattern maquette for the Walter's magnificent and groundbreaking mosaic binding on Shakespeares, "The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark," which was published in 1933. The intricate interlocking design, executed by Walters on a single sheet of light brown art paper(5 x 8 inches), has been impressed in, and then some areas have been colored in light red, light blue and darker blue. Walters has signed the piece at the top, "CW," and "Hamlet," and on the verso (which has a few pencil additions) is also inscribed at top, "Hamlet, 1938." The renowned American bookbinder, Curtis Walters, began bookbinding in about 1900, heavily influenced by George D. Smith, and late studied with Matthews, the Club Bindery, and Stikeman. He conceived his innovative mosaic binding techniques early on, but perfected them much later in his career. Many of his bindings appear in the famous Henry W. Poor Collection and Sale. Original studies for binding designs by famous bookbinders are vanishingly scarce.

        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 STORY OF TEMPLE DRAKE - ORIGINAL LOBBY CARD

      Paramount PIctures Distributing Corporation, [Los Angeles] 1933 - Original studio-issued lobby card, offset printed on card stock, measuring 35.5cm x 28cm (14" x 11"). Discreet pinholes to corners, a few very faint stress creases to same, else bright, very Near Fine, and unrestored. Attractive lobby card from Stephen Roberts's 1933 pre-code crime drama, adapted from William Faulkner's 1931 novel Sanctuary. The story centers around Temple Drake, the daughter of a judge in a Southern city, who refuses to marry a steady, reliable lawyer and instead falls in with a group of bootleggers, resulting in rape and murder. This card illustrates the dramatic concluding scene of the film, where Temple confesses in court all that has happened to her, subsequently fainting into the arms of Mr. Steady, Reliable Lawyer, who carries her from the courtroom. Original ephemera from the film is uncommon, particularly well-preserved and in an unrestored state.

Wells complains bitterly of the activities of your American interviewer who has taken passages from his books, hacked them about, interpolated colloquialisms, inserted nasty suggestions by way of spice & presented them to the public as his conversation. How, he asks, is one to keep square with one's public if this sort of thing is done? Life is too short for the worry & labour of a libel action or for pursuing the offending interviewer round & about the world with screams of repudiation. Unless, he adds darkly, the thing becomes intolerable." Sold with a 5 x 7 inch photograph of a much more relaxed (drunk?) Wells with Brigit Patmore in the courtyard of Elizabeth, Countess Russell at Mougins in 1933, taken by Derek Patmore, according to an ink caption on the verso.

        To A God Unknown

      New York: Robert O. Ballou(1933). Signed and extensively inscribed by the author on an accompanying postcard. Fine 1st edition, 1st printing book, in a Fine 1st issue dustjacket with $2.00 price intact on lower front flap. Only 598 copies were printed by Ballou in 1933 (who went out of business after printing those 598 copies) and the book didn't have another edition till it was reprinted in 1935 by Covici Friede and Heinemann in the U.K. Tight and unread book with no previous owner markings, no soiling, clean page edges and the black upper page edges are very evenly dark and unspotted. There's just a tiny bit of softening to the binding cloth at spine ends, a tiny rectangular shadow to the cloth at the spine front-side lower edge and just a hint of bumping to upper binding corners to keep it from being As New. It is bound in light green cloth with still bright gilt lettering on the spine. The dustjacket has one tiny edge nick lower front-side spine end that's professionally repaired internally, and slight toning to the spine lettering but no fading or toning of other spine colors. Truly beautiful with no tears, chips or fading. The book comes with a postcard written by Steinbeck in 1952, very clear writing and signature and quite a lengthy inscription to a young woman who was collecting author signatures who was also involved in 4H activities. She had written Steinbeck about trying to win a trophy and he quotes her his favorite motto in both Spanish and English of 'If you don't want to fly beware of wings' and talks to her of 'food became more important than fame' and that he'd tried once to sell his trophy. The postcard was sent from Steinbeck's New York City 72nd St. address and has 'Steinbeck' as part of the printed sender's address on the card. It is in Near Fine condition - a few tiny age-toned areas, one corner tip that had been turned down at some point (no material loss), a tiny pin prick upper middle edge, and a tiny crimp (no material loss) to the lower edge. The postcard is safeguarded now in a removable archival heavy-duty (16 gauge, so stiff enough not to need a backing board) removable clear holder that lets you see both sides of the card while in the holder. Also included is a custom clamshell case, bronze spine label, with a patterned-design outside cloth covering complementing the book's dustjacket and a fully lined ivory-colored soft flannel interior. The card in its holder is housed in an ivory-colored soft flannel flapped-closure pocket built onto the inside of the upper lid of the case, with the ivory flannel overall just a bit age-darkened. The book's dustjacket is in a removable, clear mylar dustjacket protecter. Rare examples of both a Steinbeck inscription and signature, and of Steinbeck's 3rd book - which is his most scarce book to find in collector condition. ; 7-5/8" x 5"; 325 pages; Signed by Author, 10, 20, F/F

        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.
