        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

        The Outermost House A Year on the Great Beach of Cape Cod

      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

      Macmillan, London 1933 - 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        ALS in German, one leaf with 31 lines on recto plus eight lines and signature on verso, signed ‘Dein Albert', Le Coq (Belgium), 19. VII. [19]33.

      - A fascinating, but somewhat depressing letter showing the dire financial straits in which Einsetin?s ex-wife Mileva, and their two sons, found themselves in as the Nazi?s came to power in Germany. Einstein had already moved to the United States with his new wife Else, but had returned to Europe in 1933 for a visit, during which time this letter was written. Einstein ends with his best wishes for their youngest son, Eduard (?Tetel?), who had been institutionalized in 1922 after developing schizophrenia. Sadly, Eduard?s release from the institution to which Einstein refers was only temporary.-----------------------------------------Liebe Milena!Herr Dukas hat mir genau Bericht erstattet und mir gezeigt, in was für einer schwierigen Lage du bist. Mach dir aber keine Sorgen. Ich werde dir trotz meiner eigenen prekären Situation über alles hinweghelfen ? wenigstens diesmal noch.Ich bin dafür, das Haus abzustossen, wenn es einigermassen geht. Denn man muss eine bescheidene Situation in Kauf nehmen, um eine gefährliche für die Zukunft zu vermeiden. Schreib mir recht bald, wie es damit geht. An Verkauf ist wohl nicht zu denken, da niemand ein passives Haus nehmen wird. Es kommt alles darauf an, mit den Banken ins Reine zu kommen. Haben wir den gar niemand, der dort mit seinem Einfluss intervenieren würde?Du weisst doch, dass mir die Deutschen das Geld in Deutschland weggenommen haben. Die Schweizer Behörden haben zwar interveniert, aber so lahm und schwächlich, dass an einen Erfolg nicht zu denken war. Mein Einkommen in Amerika ist durch den Dollar-Sturz entwertet und die ganze Familie ist in die Lage von Bettlern gekommen. So kommt es, dass auch ich in Bedrängnis gekommen bin und aus den Sorgen und Plackereien nicht herauskomme. Aber die Summe, um die es sich in Deinem Falle handelt, kann ich doch noch herausschinden. Wenn ich aber sterbe, lasse ich lauter Elend zurück. Wenn Ihr damals sofort mein Verlangen erfüllt hättet, hätte ich Alberts und Tetels Geld sofort auf deren Namen überschrieben, und es wäre nicht genommen worden![Page 2]Es freut mich sehr, dass man den Versuch wagt, Tetel für einige Zeit aus der Anstalt zu nehmen. Wenn es gelänge, wäre es ein grosser Segen. Grüsse ihn sehr herzlich von mir!Alles Gute und Kopf hoch!Dein Albert.------------------------------------Dear Milena!Mr Dukas gave me an exact report and showed me what a difficult situation you?re in. But don?t worry. In spite of my own precarious situation, I?ll tide you over everything ? at least this time.I opt for getting rid of the house if that?s feasible somehow. Because one must make do with a poor situation in order to avoid a dangerous one in the future. Please write soon and let me know how things go with that. Selling it is hardly imaginable because nobody will take a house burdened with debt. Everything depends on making settlements with the banks. Don?t we have anybody influential who would intervene there?You know how the Germans took my money in Germany. The Swiss authorities did intervene, but in such a lame and weak manner that success was hardly to be expected. My revenues in America have been devaluated by the dollar crash, and the whole family are now in a position of beggars. That?s how I?ve ended in hardship, too, and cannot escape the worries and drudgery. Nevertheless, I can elicit the lump sum we?re talking about in your case. But if I die, all I?ll leave behind is misery. If you had fulfilled my request back then, I would have transferred Albert and Tetel?s money in their name immediately, and it wouldn?t have been taken away![Page 2]I am very happy to hear that Tetel will be temporarily released from the institution on a trial basis. If this turns out a success, it would be great bliss. Please send my warmest regards to him!All the best, and chin up!Sincerely, Albert.Please write to me as soon as things clear up, so I can make quick decisions. You never know what comes next!--------------------------------------------Albert Einstein (18

        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.

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

      Self-published], [China, probably at Shanghai 1933 - 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.

        [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.

        The Outermost House. A Year on the Great Beach of Cape Cod

      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.".

      Frederick A. Stokes Company 1933 - SIGNED "Ellery Queen" by Frederick Dannay on the title page.

        The Brownies and Prince Florimel; or, Brownieland, Fairyland, and Demonland

      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.
