        Les Amours Pastorales de Daphnis et Chloe (With ANS from St. John Hornby)

      Chelsea: The Ashendene Press, 1933. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine. Raverat, Gwendolen; Hewitt, Graily. 4to - over 9" - 12" tall. 171 p. Signed by Publisher. Limited edition of 290 copies printed on paper, unnumbered, plus 20 printed on vellum; laid in are (i) a short ANS on Shelley House letterhead, from St. John Hornby to the original owner of the book, thanking him for payment and stating "I too feel sad at the thought that this is practically my last book"; and (ii) the original order form (blank) on vellum.***ABOUT THE BOOK: Numerous versions of the story of Daphnis and Chloe have been published and the story continues to enthrall readers. This version, the final book published by the Ashendene Press (other than their own bibliography), is one of the loveliest: the woodcuts by Gwendolen Raverat, the marginal notes in red, and the initial capitals filled in by hand by Graily Hewitt all form a harmonious whole that pleases the eye and the mind. The translation of Jacques Amyot, published in 1559, was the first vernacular edition and remains widely used. Many of us are familiar with the sad tale of the first printing of this book, which had to be destroyed due to the sheets having been packed before the ink had sufficiently dried; deeming the results unworthy of the Press, Hornby ordered all but 10 specimen copies to be destroyed and the entire book re-printed.***DESCRIPTION: Original binding of green paper boards with a vellum back and vellum tips, with a gold stamp on the cover being a vignette of Daphnis and Chloe with some lambs encircled with greenery, fore- and bottom edges uncut, plain endpapers, title page in red and black, the 26 woodcut illustrations scattered throughout the text, text in French, red marginal notes throughout, blue initials and paragraph indicators, printed in Ptolemy type on Batchelor paper; quarto size (just over 10" tall), pagination: (i-iv) being the half-title and title pages, i-iv being the Editor's Preface, (1)-162, colophon page. The ANS is on a small sheet (approximately 8" by 5") headed "Shelley House / Chelsea Embankment, S.W. 3." and has a hand-written note covering the front and about a third of the back, dated 1 June 1934 and signed "C St.J Hornby"; the blank order form is printed on vellum, is approximately 7.25" by 5", printing in red and black, setting forth the prices for the copies on paper (6 guineas) and on vellum (40 guineas).

        Goblin Market

      London: William Heinemann, 1933. One of 410 Copies Signed by Arthur Rackham [RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. ROSSETTI, Christina. Goblin Market. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. London: George G. Harrap & Co., Ltd. [1933]. One of 410 copies signed by Arthur Rackham, this being copy No. 403. Octavo (9 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches; 228 x 146 mm.). 44, [1], [3, blank] pp. Four full-page color plates and nineteen drawings in black and white. Publisher's limp vellum, front cover decoratively lettered in gilt, pictorial end-papers in green and white, top edge gilt, others uncut. A fine copy in the original (chipped) glassine wrapper and slipcase with limitation label with matching number. Chemised in a full tan morocco slipcase. Chemise with bookplate of renowned collector Richard Manney. Goblin Market (composed in April 1859 and published in 1862) is a narrative poem by Christina Rossetti. In a letter to her publisher, Rossetti claimed that the poem, which is interpreted frequently as having features of remarkably sexual imagery, was not meant for children. However, in public Rossetti often stated that the poem was intended for children, and went on to write many children's poems. When the poem appeared in her first volume of poetry, Goblin Market and Other Poems, it was illustrated by her brother, the Pre-Raphaelite artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Goblin Market is about two close young sisters, Laura and Lizzie, who hear the sounds of the goblin fruit market from their house where they reside by themselves. At first they try to ignore the enticing calls of the goblin men but eventually Laura decides to go out and see what's happening. Lizzie warns her not to, but Laura is too curious. The goblin men offer her their fruit, and Laura thinks it looks tasty. She doesn't have any money, but the goblins offer to take a piece of her golden hair instead. So Laura gives up some of her hair, gorges herself on goblin fruit, and heads on home to her sister. But after eating all that goblin fruit, Laura starts to waste away. Lizzie gets worried and decides to go down to the market to see what's what. The goblin men try to tempt her the way they tempted Laura, but Lizzie stands firm. The goblin men turn violent and try to stuff fruit in Lizzie's mouth, but she squeezes her mouth shut, so they just end up getting juice all over her. Lizzie runs back to their house all covered in goblin fruit juice. Laura kisses the juice off her sister's cheeks and is miraculously, but painfully, healed. Years later, Laura and Lizzie are both wives and mothers, and they describe their experience in the goblin market to their own children as a cautionary tale about the importance of sisterly love. Latimore and Haskell, p 69; Riall, p. 179.

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." .

      Dessau und Düsseldorf, 1931 bis 1933. - Zusammen (2+1+1=) 4 SS. auf 4 Bll. Kl.-4to und 8vo. Mit einem eh. adr. Kuvert. An den Kunsthistoriker Hans Secker, den ehemaligen Direktor der Neuen Gemäldesammlung des Walraff-Richartz-Museums in Köln. 1) Nach seiner Berufung an die Düsseldorfer Kunstakademie. "Es kann mir nur angenehm sein, wenn Sie mir nicht böse sind und ich erwarte im neuen Jahr Ihren werten Besuch in meinem Düsseldorfer Atelier (jeweils etwa Mitte des Monats bin ich sicher dort)[.] Bei solcher Gelegenheit können wir dann über Ihre Pläne sprechen [ ]" (Dessau, 11. XII. 1931). Während seiner Lehrtätigkeit an der Akademie lebte Klee in 14tägigem Turnus abwechselnd in Dessau und in Düsseldorf. - 2) "Ich werde am Freitag den von Ihnen vorgeschlagenen Eilzug [.] benutzen, ob alleine oder mit Zschokke [d. i. der. befreundete schweizerische Bildhauer A. Zschokke, der eine Büste von ihm angefertigt hatte], das war bis dahin nicht festzustellen. Vielleicht muss ich nachmittags od. gegen Abend doch wieder nach Düsseldorf fahren, ich muss also auf Ihr so freundliches Anerbieten, mir Fahrschein und Bettkarte zu besorgen mit vielem Dank verzichten [ ]" (Düsseldorf, 20. I. 1932). - 3) Kurz vor dem Wegzug aus Dessau: "Ich verbringe hier die Ferien um meine Ateliereinrichtung transport fähig [sic] zu machen. Denn wir ziehen jetzt endlich um, wo sich so manches zu einem interessanten Knoten verschnürt, ohne bis dahin irgend Entscheidendes zu bringen. Durch mein Hiersein erhalte ich Ihre so freundliche Einladung so spät, dass ich kaum mehr rechtzeitig danken kann [ ]" (Dessau, "Samstag, vor Ostern", d. i. der 15. IV. 1933). Nach seiner Entlassung durch die Nationalsozialisten gab Klee das Dessauer Meisterhaus auf, das er seit 1926 bewohnt hatte; Ende des Jahres übersiedelte er nach Bern. - Jeweils im linken Rand gelocht (geringf.

        The Comanche Barrier to the South Plains Settlement: A century and a half of savage resistance to the advancing white frontier

      Glendale: Arthur H Clark Co, 1933 424+[4 ad] pages with frontispiece, 4 maps, 8 illustrations, bibliography and index. Royal octavo (9 1/2" x 6 1/2") bound in blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine. First edition.In the annals of the great plains and prairie county south of the Arkansas river, the achievements of the pioneer loom large; for in this land the frontier era must be measured not in years or decades but in centuries. The Spaniards, who approached the country from the south and west, scarcely entered it at all, and it took, half a century of seasoning before the Anglo-Americas could subdue. it. Powerful forces delayed the advanced of the Europeans into this region, and not the least of these was the Comanche Indians. They guarded well the vast, treeless land that was their home and, what is more, they made life unsafe for those white men who dared to settle near the periphery of the Comancheria. Before Daniel Boone had entered Kentucky they were harassing the Spaniards at San Antonio, and as late as 1874 they took scalps within ten or fifteen miles of that old Spanish town. The purpose of this book is to give an account of the conflict of these superb savage horsemen with the more advanced peoples who finally succeeded in occupying their country. The narrative in part has to do with Spain's achievements and failures in dealing with nomadic Indians; it reveals the harsh tactics of the Anglo-American frontiersmen as they grappled with an Indian problem more puzzling than any they had ever known before; it brings out the mistakes and misapplied efforts of governments controlled by eastern men and struggling with problems peculiar to the west; and through it all runs the story of a nomadic culture debauched by vices of its more advanced neighbors, hurled about by currents of westward expansion, and finally confined and compelled to become a part of the civilization it hated and resisted to the last. Condition:Some light scuffing to boards, corners bumped, light rubbing to spine ends else a very good copy.

        Thurmond-Holmes Lynching: Real-photo postcard, titled "San Jose, Calif. Nov. 26 - 1933 11:25 P.M."

      [N.p.], 1933. 1 vols. 3-1/2 x 5-1/2 inches. Fine. 1 vols. 3-1/2 x 5-1/2 inches. Photo of California's Last Lynching, 1933. On Nov 9, 1933, 22-year old Brooke Hart was kidnapped and held for $40,000 ransom. A massive manhunt led to Thomas Harold Thurmond. After six hours of interrogation, Thurmond confessed and named his accomplice, John M. Holmes. They both admitted murdering Brooke and dropping his body into the San Francisco Bay. On the evening of the 26th, a lynch mob broke into the Santa Clara County Jail and dragged Holmes and Thurmond to the St. James Park where 3000 onlookers from San Jose and the surrounding area, chanted "string them up." Governor 'sunny Jim" Rolf refused to call out the National Guard to protect the kidnappers, and referred to the lynching as a "lesson." "Thurmond was hung from the limb of a venerable mulberry tree, and, the limb of a great elm a few feet away served as Holmes' gallows a second or two later." - 'History of San Jose' by Clyde Arbuckle. Souvenir hunters so damaged the trees that they had to be cut down, and not a trace remains of them. This lynching was the last to take place in California, and was the basis for John Steinbeck's short story, "The Lonesome Vigilante."The photograph depicts the the three limbs of the tree rising from the trunk at center, and the hanging corpses of the two lynched men, Thurmond at left, partly clothed, above a small group of onlookers; Holmes (unclothed) at right. AN EXTRAORDINARY DOCUMENT OF AMERICAN SOCIAL HISTORY.

Small tears at the spine ends, slight soiling or offsetting on the covers, and a little waviness at the bottom of some pages, else bright and fresh, very near fine issues. Chaplin spent over a year touring Europe between 1931 and 1932. His journal of the trip was published in five issues of the Woman's Home Companion published between September 1933 and January 1934. It wasn't published in book form until 2014, when research revealed that the articles may have been his first published work. The trip also influenced his view of the world, leading him to tackle more controversial subjects with Modern Times (1936) and The Great Dictator (1940). Uncommon found together and in such bright and attractive copies.

      Internationales Institut für Geistige Zusammenarbeit / Völkerbund, Paris, 1933, 1933 - OBr., 63 Seiten ZU DIESEM ANGEBOT: Auf nur 2000 Exemplare limitierte und nummerierte Auflage. Mein Exemplar trägt die Nummer 907. // ZUM ERHALTUNGSZUSTAND: Noch unbeschnittene Seiten, mithin noch ungelesen. Altersbedingte Lagerspuren (leichte Bestoßungen an den Buchkanten, Rückenleimung gelöst). Eine auf blaues Papier gedruckte Verlagsankündigung des Internationalen Instituts für Geistige Zusammenarbeit liegt bei. // SIGMUND FREUD AN ALBERT EINSTEIN - »Lieber Herr Einstein! Als ich hörte, dass Sie die Absicht haben, mich zum Gedankenaustausch über ein Thema aufzufordern, dem Sie Ihr Interesse schenken und das Ihnen auch des Interesses Anderer würdig erscheint, stimmte ich bereitwillig zu. Ich erwartete, Sie würden ein Problem an der Grenze des heute Wißbaren wählen, zu dem ein jeder von uns, der Physiker wie der Psychologe, sich seinen besonderen Zugang bahnen könnte, so dass sie sich von verschiedenen Seiten her auf demselben Boden träfen. Sie haben mich dann durch die Fragestellung überrascht, was man tun könne, um das Verhängnis des Krieges von den Menschen abzuwehren. Ich erschrak zunächst unter dem Eindruck meiner - fast hätte ich gesagt: unserer - Inkompetenz, denn das erschien mir als eine praktische Aufgabe, die den Staatsmännern zufällt. Ich verstand dann aber, dass Sie die Frage nicht als Naturforscher und Physiker erhoben haben, sondern als Menschenfreund, der den Anregungen des Völkerbundes gefolgt war, ähnlich wie der Polarforscher Fridtjof Nansen es auf sich genommen hatte, den Hungernden und den heimatlosen Opfern des Weltkrieges Hilfe zu bringen. Ich besann mich auch, dass mir nicht zugemutet wird, praktische Vorschläge zu machen, sondern dass ich nur angeben soll, wie sich das Problem der Kriegsverhütung einer psychologischen Betrachtung darstellt.

        DARK HAZARD

      New York: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1933. First Edition. First Printing, with publisher's "F-H" code on copyright page. Octavo (21.5cm); evergreen cloth, with titling and decorative elements stamped in black and orange on spine and front cover; Art-Deco patterned endpapers; dark yellow topstain; dustjacket; [viii],295pp. Faint suggestion of a forward lean, else a fresh, Fine copy. Dustjacket is unclipped (priced $2.50), gently spine-sunned and lightly edge-worn, with several short tears, attendant creases, and small chips to extremities, and some unobtrusive rubbing to front panel; Very Good+. Attractive copy of Burnett's seventh book, a novel set in California and centered around a down-and-out gambler, his interaction with gangsters, and his love affair with dog racing - particularly with a black greyhound named Dark Hazard. Burnett became involved in dog racing for a time while writing Dark Hazard, and even owned a greyhound named War Cry. Easily the scarcest of Burnett's trade editions - particularly in dustjacket; the Book Club edition, issued in August, 1933, is ubiquitous, and frequently misidentified by booksellers and auctioneers alike. Basis for Alfred E. Green's 1934 film of the same name, starring Edward G. Robinson and Genevieve Tobin, and a 1937 B-picture titled Wine, Women, and Horses. Hubin, p.58; Baird 359.
