Who is who Deutschland 1934-1935 In der NS-Zeit 1934 vom Verlag Otto Stollberg herausgegeben. Ein Buch mit den Biografien von Partei- und Regierungsaktivisten, oft mit Fotos von ihnen. Alphabetisches Layout. Aufgrund politischer Kämpfe und Spiele zwischen der SS und der SA wurden einige Personen während des Drucks dieses Buches verhaftet oder getötet, und die Spuren in ihren Biografien sind leere lange Rechtecke - Spuren, nachdem die Biografie vom Drucker nach dem Falten des Buches entfernt wurde. In ähnlicher Weise wurden einige Biografien veröffentlicht, und einige Monate nach ihrer Veröffentlichung wurden Parteiaktivisten festgenommen. Ihre Biografien waren mit Streifen weißer Seiten verklebt. Das Buch hat 552 Seiten mit Lebensläufen 148 + 8 Informationsseiten über Ministerien, Botschaften, Verbände usw. Gebrochener Grat, weil sich die Leinwand als zu empfindlich herausstellte. Das Buch ist auch auf dem deutschen Markt sehr selten, es ist derzeit nicht im Internet. Es gibt keine einzige Seite. Abmessungen 25x18,5 cm.

[American Indians] [Archeology] [New York] Westervelt, Leonidas
New York, et al., 1934. Large heavy folio, 12 x 14 inches. 81 leaves, cloth covers with string-through binding. Housed in a custom clamshell box. Good to Very Good. Leonidas Westervelt was a New York-based playwright and theater historian who also had an interest in archaeology. This scrapbook documents his digs in the New York City region in a time when many interesting artifacts were exhumed due to the city's rapidly developing infrastructure, both in the expanding subway system of northern Manhattan and the regional development of automobile transportation during the Robert Moses era. Westervelt conducted digs under the auspices of the New York Historical Society and the Museum of the American Indian, and the scrapbook includes correspondence from George Heye and the fellow archaeological adventurer William Louis Calver. Westervelt operated as a scout of sorts for Heye, and some of Heye's letters ask Westervelt to evaluate potential sites for MAI excursions.Much of note exists in the scrapbook, in which Westervelt documented his expeditions through New York City, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Upstate New York and Long Island. Highlights include: photographs from a series of 1921 digs in West Point that unearthed coins and tools, with corresponding typed reports; a series of photographs of an Indian rock shelter in Haskel, New Jersey; a series of panoramic photographs and archeological photographs of Montauk sites near Easthampton, Long Island; a photograph of the artifact room of the MAI with an inscription to Westervelt on verso; American Indian skeletons ex … [Click Below for Full Description]

Moscow: OGIZ, IZOGIZ, 1934. [66] pp. 34x35 cm. Publisher's cloth binding. Each illustration is supplied with the tissue paper, all present. Copy from the smaller part of the print run with the publisher's blank dust wrapper preserved and Stalin's silhouette printed in silver on the frontispiece and Stalin's signature printed in silver on the title page. One of 2000 copies. The book is a dedication copy to arctic explorer and journalist Boris Gromov, who was one of the members on the legendary SS 'Chelyuskin', crushed and then rescued in the Chukchi Sea in April of 1934. The inscription on the endpaper reads 'To 'Chelyuskinets' comrade Gromov from the collective of IZOGIZ' signed Boris Malkin (head of the publishing house), also Gromov's name is embroided on the cloth of the binding. Extremely rare, especially the copy from the limited part of the edition. Stalin's image has heavily influenced Soviet art and this book is a representative summary of the process with some of the best art examples of that influence shown. In fact in the 1930s it was almost impossible to imagine any area of Soviet book art and art in general without the mention of 'the leader'. However this album proves that the best artists in the Union are capable of creating incredible art despite the ideological pressure. The book itself is designed by Natalia Pinus (who has designed Stalin's bass-relief on the front cover on the book) and Gustav Klutsis, arguably one of the most important pre-war Soviet artists, the pioneer of photomontage and one of the ideologists of constructivism in book art.

[Moscow]: Sovetskaia literatura, 1934. 130, [2] pp.: ill. 26,5x20,5 cm. In original dust jacket, original cardboard with lettering on the spine and Order of Lenin on the front cover. Restored dust jacket and slightly rubbed, otherwise very good. One of 15 000 copies. Design was produced by VKUTEMAS graduate, Efim Pernikov (1903-1966) who worked on posters and books tending to agitational photomontages. For this edition, he used pictures provided by photograph A. Sorokin. This is a captivating account of the Soviet stratospheric ascent that broke a record and reached a height of 19,000 meters in 1933. Soaring above Moscow, this high-altitude balloon was featured on the dust jacket that was divided almost in half by earth and sky. The book's charm continued with photomontage endpapers showing enthusiastic people on the ground watching those who floated far in the air. Shortly after the title page (in Russian, English and German) a double-page photomontage contains a balloon flown to the Moon in the starry sky. Another photomontage in a chapter with a loud headline 'Lenin Style' depicts nine engineers in front of their masterpiece, spherical gondola with lettering 'SSSR-1'. The edition is fully illustrated with photographs and some of them were produced at night before release, the rest - by daylight. There are many photographs of the balloon and equipment. For example, p. 93 features a fine picture of a man, lifted by a jumping balloon, who was checking out the toughness of a gasbag for the grandiose flight. In fact, the jumping balloons as a thrilling sport were spread in th … [Click Below for Full Description]

HOOVER, Herbert.
New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1934. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine and front cover in gilt. With the dust jacket; fragments of original glassine loosely inserted at rear. Very light bumping at extremities, otherwise a near-fine, square copy; in the good jacket, long closed tear to rear panel, spine panel sunned and slightly soiled, general light rubbing and minor chipping. First edition, first printing, inscribed by the 31st President on the front free endpaper "To Carl W Jones With the kind regards of Herbert Hoover". The recipient was Carl Waring Jones (1887-1957), the proprietor of the Minneapolis Journal, publisher of books on magic, and patron of the arts in Minneapolis. Letters between Jones and Hoover are preserved in the Minnesota Historical Society. In The Challenge to Liberty, Hoover argues that the increasing bureaucracy, regimentation and centralization of power ongoing in America under Roosevelt (to whom he lost the 1932 election) was threatening American liberty. Hoover makes the case for liberty in the classical sense, opposes an increase in state power, and rejects the ascendant philosophies of socialism, fascism and communism.

Christie, Samuel Money
The Christie Press, 1934. De Luxe Edition limited to 500 numbered copies (this, no. 80) signed by Jacques La Grange on the title page; oblong folio, pp. [4], 120; 30 handsome woodcuts on 28 plates by the La Granges, most printed in color and each signed in pencil by the artist; each plate is protected by a glassine sheet as well as a blue pictorial leaf with descriptive text; other smaller embellishments throughout; bound in full blue leather with silver lettering on spine and upper cover, slightly rubbed but overall the book is very good and sound; internally fine. This copy belonged to Louie Howland (Howland and Co.) who has been selling his books through Greg Gibson at Ten Pound Island in Gloucester, Mass. I saw this book in one of Greg's recent lists and, having an affinity for America's Cup books, and never having seen the book before (or so I thought), I plunged ahead and bought it. Lo and Behold! When it arrived there was a slip inside from the business which sold Howland the book in the first place - The Current Company where I worked with my father until the late 1970s. And it was I who catalogued it! I'd like to say I've never seen or had this book before. And until I saw proof to the contrary, I hadn't.
