Loeb was an important figure in the Paris expatriate community.

Loeb's views on a political movement which, though largely forgotten today, had numerous adherents between the wars. See this book in 3D on our site. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Grayson, Chairman, General Inaugural Committee, and inscribed by the program committee chair: "To the Vice President-elect with/the affectionate regard of J. Fred Essary." Scarce edition given as gifts to distinguished guests. Fine. John Nance Garner (1868 - 1967), nicknamed Cactus Jack, was a southern conservative Democrat. He served as Texas state representative from 1898 to 1902, U.S. Representative from 1903 to 1933 and Speaker of the House from 1931 - 1933. In 1932, Garner ran for the Democratic Presidential nomination. New York Governor Franklin D. Roosevelt was chosen, getting the necessary two-thirds after agreeing to make Garner his Vice-Presidential candidate. Garner was re-elected to the Seventy-third Congress and as Vice President of the United States at the same time. (Only Schuyler Colfax had previously served as both Speaker of the House and President of the Senate on the same day). Garner resigned from the House just before being sworn in as Vice President, an office he held until 1941. Garner, who was not one of FDR's key advisors, famously described the Vice-Presidency as being "not worth a bucket of warm piss."

November, 1933." De Acosta was a writer and actress, and a flamboyant Cuban-born lesbian linked romantically to Greta Garbo, Isadora Duncan, Marlene Dietrich, and many others, and who apparently acted as something of a facilitator in artistic circles (late in her life she championed and promoted a young Andy Warhol).

        Head Yankees Scout Paul Krichell, who signed Lou Gehrig ten years earlier, writes to a 25-year-old aspiring baseball scout - "If you will kindly write me next spring, letting us know the players' names and where they can be seen, we will be glad to send one of our scouts to look them over."

      New York City, October 9, 1933. 8.5" x 11". "Typed Letter Signed "Paul Krichell" as Yankees scout, 1p, 8.5" x 11". Letter lists "Jacob Ruppert, President" and "E.G. Barrow, Secretary," both Hall of Famers. New York City, October 9, 1933. To William J. Hinchman, Philadelphia. Fine condition.In full, "Your letter of September 23rd to Mr. Barrow received and turned over to me to answer. The Yankees have five scouts and for this reason cannot take on any more at this time. Note what you say about the four young semi-pro players. If you will kindly write me next spring, letting us know the players' names and where they can be seen, we will be glad to send one of our scouts to look them over." William J. "Billy" Hinchman (1907-1940) was the son of former major leaguer William W. Hinchman (1883-1963), scout for the Pittsburgh Pirates from 1921-1958 who discovered, among others, Hall of Famers Arky Vaughan and Lloyd Waner. Billy was killed in an automobile accident when he was 32. Paul Krichell (1882-1957) was Yankees Scout from 1921-1957. Krichell's talent evaluations and signings played a key role in building up the Yankees' run of success from the Murderers' Row teams of the 1920s to the 1950s teams led by Casey Stengel. He discovered and signed Lou Gehrig in 1923 while he was still playing baseball at Columbia University. Considered one of the greatest scouts in baseball history, Krichell signed over 200 players who later played professional baseball, including Hall of Famers Gehrig, Tony Lazzeri, Hank Greenberg, Phil Rizzuto, and Whitey Ford. His recommendation of Stengel as the Yankees manager was instrumental in Stengel's appointment in 1948. Pre-certified by PSA/DNAJSA Auction LOA"

        ART EXHIBITION ON MOSCOW STREETS] Moskva 1 maia 1933 [i.e. Moscow on the 1st of May of 1933]

      - [Moscow]: Tsentr. pervomaiskaya khudozh, podkomissia Mossoveta, [1933]. 48 pp. 17,5x12,5 cm. In original constructivist-style wrappers. Very good, small tears of the spine, diagonal crease of the upper part of the back cover and a few pages. One of 3000 copies. First and only edition. Rare. This edition is dedicated to the profound and well-planned decoration of the city due to a big celebration of the May 1st of 1933 (the first year of the second five-year-plan, piatiletka). The book itself has a laconic geometrical yet catchy wrapper design. The book includes catalogue of all paintings which were presented outside on Gor'ky (Tverskaia), Petrovka, Stoleshnikov and Kuznetsky streets with artists' names, titles and exact places where paintings were installed. All paintings were dedicated to such subjects as geography of USSR, manufacturing and agriculture, military forces and Revolution, etc. The interesting part of the catalogue is a description of squares' decoration. There were 8 decorated squares with different themes. The Red Square decoration was constructed by Stenberg brothers, and the theme was «Long live May the 1st, the holiday of solidarity of the international proletariat!». The main elements of the decoration were two giant portraits of Lenin and Stalin on GUM building and a panel with Pervomai slogans on 4 languages. A monumental sculpture by Kuznetsov was installed on the Lobnoye Mesto. Okhotnyi riad was decorated with «architectural construction» designed by Gustav Klutsis (the theme was «Raise the Banner of Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin») which was installed on the facade of hotel «Moskva». The project was based on the poster by Klutsis on the same subject (printed by IZOGIZ). The idea was to show how closely Stalin's rule connected to revolutionary studies of Marx and Engels. There were 4 panels, on one of them there were depicted fortresses of old world and of new (Dneprostroi). All elements were lit. Decorating of parades and public events in early Soviet history could be considered an art form just like agitprop posters or art. Any information we can gather right now on the designs and the organization of these events is historically and culturally important. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      Macmillan & Co, 1933. First edition. Based on lectures given at the Lowell Institute, this book reflects on the explorations made by (Marc) Aurel Stein in four expeditions to Central Asia that took him into Eastern Turkestan, westernmost China, and across the Hindu Kush and the Pamirs.

        Virginia Woolf lengthy, corrected, and Anti-Semitic letter

      [London], December 12, [1933]. 8" x 11". "Typewritten Letter, two pages, 8"" x 11"", [London], December 12,[1933] to her nephew, Quentin [Bell]. Virginia Woolf was an English writer who influenced 20th Century writing. She is known for such prominent works as Mrs. Dalloway, To the Lighthouse and Orlando , and A Room of One's Own. The letter has several corrections and a three-line postscript in her hand. It paints a dark portrait of Virginia and her sister, ""Nessa"" (Quentin's mother), along with expressing some of the sentiments of anti-Semitism and malicious talk involving several of the Bloomsbury set, which was a group of literary figures, philosophers, artists, and intellectuals who's opinions and work strongly influenced many areas including literature and feminism. The letter reads:""52 Tavistock Sq Tuesday 12th Dec.""Dearest Quentin,""If you were here today--a very foggy cold day--I should say to you, My dear Quentin, if you will take me, I will come. What to? you may ask. To which I reply, number three Belgrave Square. Who the devil lives there? you would say. And in one word I should reply; a cocktail party given by the Hutchinsons to anticipate their daughters marriage to the richest Jew in Europe. Oysters and champagne cup. But as youre not here, and its foggy, and its gloomy, and Ive no clothes, and cant be bothered to rush out and buy gloves, hat, and shoes, all for a Jew, I sit in my underground vault, with the fog truck on the skylight, writing--oh dear how happy I am not to go! We had the young couple the other night; and they brought a brown bag; and out of this they lifted rubies-- rubies set in diamonds. And we all crowned ourselves with the Rothschild rubies; worth £300,000. Well? Nessa and Duncan came in, and said they made just as good in Regent Street. But the diamonds were nice; like spiders webs--immortal spiders webs; spiders webs made in the valleys of the moon. But Nessa will tell you that she didnt like the flavour of the Jew. Like raw pork, she said. Surely rather an unkind saying? Barbara I like; I think she's flying her litt/e flag gamely; but she'll founder they say; in six months, she'll be looking out of the window, and seeing a trim, spare Englishman, and sighing, Oh if I were back in my native fields. Thats Nessa again.""Yesterday I had [Dame] Ethel Smyth--who adores you, and says youre the image of what she's sought in man all her life, and would marry you, given a dogs change一and Rebecca West to tea. It was a screaming howling party. Old Ethel meanders so. And shes so deaf. And shes so violent. But she is, to give her her due, very shrewd. And she has battered about the world like a buccaneer, and so when Leonard claps his hand on her mouth, she sits silent, for a second. Rebecca is the oddest woman; like an arboreal animal grasping a tree, and showing all her teeth, as if another animal were about to seize her young. This may be the result of having a son out of wedlock. However she is tenacious and masterful and very good company, having also battered about in the stinking underworld of hack writers--people like Priestley, Lynd, Squire, and others so covered with mud one cant name them even. They discussed Mrs Pankhurst, and how she smelt when hunger striking; apparently, if you dont drink you smell horribly after three days. Leonard is at this moment closeted with Lyn Irvine who wants to start a new paper (keep this to yourself) written entirely by her self; and printed on a cyclo stuyle. This is a last effort on her part to speak the truth and make a living. Its come out fortnightly, and give her views on politics, art, letters , life. Would you do a drawing--but she cant pay, and I daresay the first number will only beget three more; and then it will die. Life and Letters is dying. They all die.""We went to Orpheus--the loveliest opera every written--at Sadlers Wells; and there was a congeries of old fogies--Ottoilne hawking and mousing; Stephen Spender, being hawked and moused; Helen. The Russian children; Oliver and a hard featured lady who inspires him with rapture; also a young woman called Lynd, whom I think you might like.""Good bye now, as I am not being very amusing, but then all the time I am feeling, ought I to go Belgrave Square?""What's happening to Malcolm Sargent and his sheets? And the apls your grandfather climbed,?""Virginia.In postscript Woolf has written, ""I suppose you read Roger [Fry]'s Inaugural lecture. I wonder what you thought of it."""
