E. B. Ezra, was a Baghdadi Jewish publisher and Zionist based in Shanghai. He founded the Shanghai Zionist Association in 1903 and its official newspaper, Israel's Messenger, one of China's oldest and most sophisticated Jewish periodicals… Influenced by Ezra, his nephews started the newspaper Jewish Tribune in Bombay, India. ” (Wikipeida, 2017) These 36 issues of the Tribune include the 1st appearance of many articles and editorials from some of the leading Jewish thinkers from across the world including: NEB Ezra, Bernard S.

        Marlborough: His Life and Times, Volume I

      London: George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd., 1933. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is a jacketed British first edition, first printing of the first volume of Churchill's Marlborough, the most elusive volume to filling a first printing set. Winston Churchill's monumental biography of his great ancestor, John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough, was initially conceived a full 40 years before publication of the fourth and final volume. Churchill originally considered the idea of the biography in 1898, returning to it in earnest in 1928. Marlborough ultimately took 10 years of research and writing and is the most substantial published work of Churchill's "wilderness years" in the 1930s. This decade saw Churchill pass into his sixties with his own future as uncertain as that of his nation. It is perhaps not incidental that Churchill's great work of the 1930s was about a great ancestor. Churchill may have wondered more than once if the life history he was writing might ultimately eclipse his own. Richard Langworth says "To understand the Churchill of the Second World War, the majestic blending of his commanding English with historical precedent, one has to read Marlborough." Two months after Volume I was published, on 12 December 1933, T.E. Lawrence wrote to Churchill: “I finished it only yesterday. I wish I had not… The skeleton of the book is so good. Its parts balance and the main stream flows… Marlborough has the big scene-painting, the informed pictures of men, the sober comment on political method, the humour, irony and understanding of your normal writing: but beyond that it shows more discipline and strength: and great dignity. It is history, solemn and decorative.” The first edition of Marlborough was originally issued in four volumes and was very well received - both critically and aesthetically. The first edition is physically impressive, bound in plum cloth with beveled edges, the Marlborough coat of arms in gilt on the front cover, a gilt text block top edge, and a profusion of illustrations, maps, and plans. Unfortunately, the plum cloth binding in Volumes I-III proved highly susceptible to sun fading. (A different, more fade-resistant dye was used in Volume IV.) Without the dust jackets, Volumes I-III are nearly always spine faded. Here is the first edition, first printing of Volume I, a very good copy in a very good dust jacket. This first volume covers Marlborough's story up to the 1702 death of William III. It is a substantial 612 pages with 35 illustrations, 14 maps and plans, and 8 document facsimiles. The binding is square and tight with sharp corners, bright gilt, and only a hint of sunning to the extreme spine ends where a hint of sun snuck past the edges of the dust jacket. The contents are crisp and bright with no previous ownership marks. Faint differential toning to the endpapers corresponding to the dust jacket flaps confirms what the binding already testifies - that this copy has spent life jacketed. Spotting appears confined to the fore and bottom edges. The dust jacket is the correct - and increasingly elusive - first printing, confirmed by an unclipped front flap that retains the original price with no telltale mention of "2nd Impression" or "3rd Impression". Color is excellent, with almost no toning of the dove gray spine color. The jacket shows only fractional chipping at the spine ends and corners, a 4 cm closed tear to the bottom edge of the front panel, some wear to the hinges, and light soiling. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A97.2(I).a, Woods/ICS A40(aa), Langworth p.166.

        Sélection Chronique de la Vie Artistique: Cahier 14

      Paris: Editions Selection Anvers, 1933. A wonderful association copy signed by Kandinsky linking Australian modernist designers with the bohemian world of Paris between the wars. Celebrating of the life and work of the great modernist innovator, Wassily Kandinsky, this album is generously illustrated with a selection of the great artist's works, including earlier pieces dating back to 1910. Significantly, Kandinsky gifted this copy to Australian designer, Douglas Glass and inscribed the title page accordingly. The inscription is fully signed 'Kandinsky' and dated 28 December 1935. Glass later gifted the album to his colleague and fellow designer, Gordon Andrews in 1948. Andrews was one of the pre-eminent Australian graphic designers of his generation - best known for designing the first decimal currency notes in 1966 - and the inscription from Glass follows that of Kandinsky's on the title page. A wonderfully evocative photograph of Glass is also loosely inserted into the book. This Kandinsky album is a tangible and tantalising link between a leading Australian designer and one of the great modernist artists of the era. Small quarto, bound in original wrappers, 96 pages (including 15 glossy photo plates), plus 4 pages of publisher's listings; spine expertly repaired, wrappers mildly chipped and scuffed, with a light crease, in very good condition.

Illustrated throughout with diagrams of Roman letters, with tissue guards. Vellum-backed pattern paper boards by W. H. Smith, in cloth tray case (lightly faded) with leather spine label. A large bookplate has been neatly removed from the pastedown, leaving a shadow; the bookplate of Frances & Frank Ross. is on rear pastedown. A previous owner has pencilled a brief bibliographical note in the bibliography section. A fine copy. One of 390 copies designed by Bruce Rogers, with an essay by Stanley Morison, who has initialed the preface. Printed in Centaur type on handmade paper at the Cambridge Univ. Press. Frederic Goudy cut some special types for the book. Emery Walker engraved the plates of Pacioli's letters. Walter Lewis and Brooke Crutchley "oversaw" the printing at Cambridge, but it was very much Rogers' project. In fact, "Mr Lewis had wisely timed his holiday to coincide with this most critical stage of production." Crutchley notes "the ink had too much gloss in it, or was too blue or too black.... He (BR) has been spending the morning painting over the black parts of the printed sheets to get rid of the gloss...The machine was standing all yesterday because the red ink wasn't right...he went to London to supervise the mixing of a new supply...a week later the ink had not dried." John Dreyfus has noted there is no other BR book 'in which format, paper, inks and presswork were in such impeccable harmony.' Blumenthal has called the title page 'a page of true grandeur...unique in the whole history of the printed word.' "BR30." A Century for the Century 34.

        Marlborough: His Life and Times, a finely bound full set of British first editions inscribed and dated by Churchill in Volume I in the month of publication to Churchill's longtime friend and painting mentor, the artist Paul Maze

      London: George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd., 1933. First edition, first printing. Full leather. . This first edition, first printing set is inscribed in Volume I in the month of publication to Churchill's close friend and artistic mentor, French painter and “last of the Impressionists” Paul Maze. The four-line, inked half-title inscription reads: “Paul Maze | from | Winston S. Churchill | Oct. 1933”. A superlative fine binding in full orange morocco (echoing the Publisher's original limited issue of the first edition), features gilt-bordered, raised spine bands, brown morocco title and author labels, gilt front cover frame rules, beveled edge boards, head and foot bands, hand-marbled endpapers, freshly re-gilt top edges, and tissue guard bound in preceding the inscription. The inscribed Volume I contents show modest spotting for the edition, primarily confined to prelims and mildly age-toned fore and bottom edges. Volumes II-IV show only a trivial hint of spotting confined to the mildly age-toned fore and bottom edges. We find no previous ownership marks other than the author's inscription. The set is housed in a brown cloth slipcase. Regarded among the great artists of his generation, Paul Lucien Maze (1887-1979) “learned the rudiments of painting from family friends that included Renoir, Monet, Dufy and Pissarro.” Though born in La Havre, Maze had “a lifelong love affair with all things English.” During the First World War Maze was wounded several times and highly decorated (awarded the DCM, MM and Bar, Legion d'Honneur, and Croix de Guerre). Maze met Churchill on the Western Front in 1916, where Churchill was serving as a Lieutenant Colonel during his political exile following the Dardanelles disaster. Churchill had only recently discovered painting, the passion Maze would encourage and guide as both friend and mentor for the rest of Churchill's life. Churchill's official Biographer called Maze “One of Churchill's closest French friends.” (Gilbert, VI, p.856) The friendship transcended painting, evidenced by shared moments, perspective, and correspondence. In between writing Marlborough, his most substantial published work of his 1930's “wilderness years”, Churchill wrote a Foreword for Maze's First World War memoir (A Frenchman in Khaki, 1934). In 1939, as war approached, Churchill also wrote a Foreword to the catalogue for his friend's first New York exhibition (“He is no toiling seeker… but a vivid and powerful interpreter to us of the forces and harmony of Nature.”) Later that same year, on 20 August, Churchill was painting beside Maze when he “suddenly turned” to his friend and said: “This is the last picture we shall paint in peace for a very long time.” Maze recorded: “What amazed me was his concentration over his painting. No one but he could have understood more what the possibility of war meant, and how ill prepared we were. As he worked, he would now and then make statements as to the relative strengths of the German Army or the French Army… Then his jaw would clench his large cigar, and I felt the determination of his will. ‘Ah' he would say, ‘with it all, we shall have him.'” Maze recorded that Churchill was depressed as he left: “I had written a letter to him ‘only to read when he was over the Channel': ‘Don't worry Winston you know that you will be Prime Minister and lead us to victory…'” (Gilbert, V, p.1103) On 1 September Nazi Germany invaded Poland returning Churchill to the Admiralty and to war. In May 1940 Churchill became Prime Minister. The next month, Maze “managed to escape through Bordeaux… bringing with him a convoy of orphans.” Maze served in the Hampshire Home Guard before serving as an RAF staff officer. (Gilbert, VI, p.857) Post-war, Maze's friendship with Churchill continued, as did the twining of their respective paths. Churchill was Queen Elizabeth II's first Prime Minister, Maze the Official Painter of her Coronation. Maze was a frequent Chartwell guest, the two painting together into Churchill's final years.

      - Lettre autographe signée « Destouches », Paris, 7 octobre 1933, à Lucien Descaves, 2 pages et demie in-8, papier tâché, en-tête de la « ville de Clichy, Services Municipaux d’Hygiène et d’Assistance Sociale ». « Il illustre d’ailleurs le Voyage » « Cher Maître, Mon excellent ami Henri Mahé me dit avoir eu l’honneur de vous être présenté récemment chez Dufrêne et je me permets de vous recommander cet excellent artiste « bien français » à votre bienveillance. Il illustre d’ailleurs le Voyage en ce moment et à ce titre j’espère que son travail vous intéressera. Il me ferait grand plaisir de vous voir quand vous le voudrez. Peut-être quand vous passez par Paris pourrais-je vous rencontrer ici ou là ? Bien sincèrement et respectueusement à vous. Votre très reconnaissant Destouches ». Cette lettre est la première des nombreuses lettres que Céline envoie à des destinataires afin de soutenir la candidature de son jeune ami Henri Mahé au prix Blumenthal de décoration (qu’il obtiendra en juin 1934). Mahé avait collaboré avec Céline pour une édition illustrée du Voyage au bout de la Nuit. Denoël n’avait jamais donné suite à ce projet.

        Moi Parizh

      1933. |~|DOWN AND OUT IN PARIS EL LISSITZKY. Moi Parizh. By Ilya Ehrenburg. 236, [2] pp. Illustrated with roughly 100 black and white plates. Oblong 4to., 160 x 185 mm, bound in publisher's illustrated boards with original illustrated dust-jacket, preserved in a recent cloth folding box. Moscow: Izogiz, 1933. |~||~||~||~| An unusually fine copy of this legendary photobook on Paris between the wars. The book was designed by El Lissitzky who also provided preliminary photographs, and photomontages. The writer, journalist and revolutionary Ilya Ehrenburg lived for a number of years in Paris and used one of the newly invented portable 35mm cameras to document life on the streets. His photographs differ from the usual romanticised images of Paris. Ehrenburg captured the lives of everyday, struggling people in Paris, young and old, people at work and rest, tradesmen, courting couples, down and outs, and drunks. Due to the rarity of this book, Ehrenburg's social photography was virtually unknown, but now thanks to a recent facsimile, it is familiar to a wider audience. With the legendarily rare dust-jacket, of which only two copies are known. Slightest wear to boards and minor restoration the the jacket, but a very desirable copy.

        [Photographs]: Bennett Lake [and] Yukon River: Yukon Territory, circa 1933-1942

      (Yukon Territory). (circa 1933-1942). Three black and white photographs, each measuring approximately 14" x 9". A set of landscape photographs taken in the Yukon Territory during the late 1930s by a member of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), a New Deal public work relief program from 1933 to 1942. They include a portrait of a man canoeing on a mist enshrouded Bennett Lake, a herd of caribou swimming across the Yukon River, and mountain sheep grazing high up on a rocky heath near the Watson River. The first photograph has a note on the verso indicating that it was taken by "guide Johnie John"; the other two only state that they were "taken by C.C.C." All three evoke the wild, open grandeur of this remote area along the Alaskan border. .

By arrangement with the Clarendon Press the text used is that of the Standard Oxford "Marlowe," edited by C.F. tucker Brooke, following in the main the 1633 quarto version, which though corrupt and itself possibly only a reprint revised from an earlier edition, is nevertheless the only text preserved.

Of this volume 250 copies have been printed, only 200 being for sale.' A tipped in note below this statement reads, 'This edition was originally planned and printed for The Golden Hours Press and 200 copies were made available for sale. of this number a balance remains and these have been taken over by Hollis & Carter Ltd [.] who now offer the original text in a less elaborate binding.
