A Verona, mia città natale, presi parte - per quel tanto che i Comandanti mi permisero - a varie azioni purificatrici della resistenza sovversiva. ... In questo clima di battagliera passione si temprò la mia fanciullezza. ... nel 1926,... fondai e diressi il primo giornale giovanile fascista della scuola media di Verona.

[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 skeleto … [Click Below for Full Description]

Stone, Irving [Kirk Douglas]
New York: Longmans, Green and Company, 1934. First edition of this classic, bestselling biographical novel of Vincent Van Gogh. Octavo, original cloth. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Rachel Ann Starr With my best wishes Irving Stone." Additionally signed by actor Kirk Douglas, who starred as Van Gogh in the 1956 film. Bookplate of the recipient, some rubbing and wear to the cloth in a near fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Arthur Hawkins, Jr. Rare and desirable signed by both Stone and Douglas. The most famous of all of Stone's novels, it is the story of Vincent Van Gogh--brilliant painter, passionate lover, and alleged madman. Here is his tempestuous story: his dramatic life, his fevered loves for both the highest-born women and the lowest prostitutes, and his paintings--for which he was damned before being proclaimed a genius. The novel takes us from his desperate days in a coal mine in southern Belgium to his dazzling years in the south of France, where he knew the most brilliant artists (and the most depraved whores). Finally, it shows us Van Gogh driven mad, tragic, and triumphant at once. No other novel of a great man's life has so fascinated the American public for generations. "A story of excruciating power" (The New York Times). It was basis for the 1956 film directed by Vincente Minnelli and produced by John Houseman, starring Kirk Douglas as Van Gogh, James Donald as his brother Theo, Pamela Brown, Everett Sloane and Anthony Quinn, who won an Oscar for his performance as Van Gogh's fast friend and rival Paul Gauguin.

GODOY (Armand) & LYDIS (Mariette).
A. Blaizot, 1934. A masterpiece of esoteric iconography by Mariette Lydis interpreting the Armand Godoy's litanies. The legend says that Godoy composed these litanies in one night, using rhythms and repetitions to create a deep hypnotic meditation if read aloud. Limited edition to 131 copies only. This scarce copy is one of the 115 printed on Rives paper watermarked with the figure of the Virgin. The work is illustrated with 48 plates which are remarkable illuminated lithographs by Mariette Lydis kept under protective paper. Volume is half-shagreen bound with rising spines and gilt title on leather label on the back, marbled endpapers, bookmark, 29 x 23 cm. Good overall condition: tiny tear at the bottom of the back, all defects are minor. Mariette Lydis (1887-1970) was an Austrian-Argentine painter. During her career she had two prominent artist phases, her first being a darker sadder period where she concentrated on portraying poor people, the old men, the dispossessed, the criminals, and the sick. Later on in her life, her work became brighter and she began drawing and painting more women, adolescents, and young children's. Throughout her career she was influenced by the Japanese artist Tsuguharu Foujita. Along with her illustrations, Lydis was also known for her lithographic depictions celebrating lesbian and bisexual relationships. Today, her works are displayed in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Fogg Art Museum at Harvard University, and Davidson Galleries in Seattle, Washington. Armand Godoy, (1880-1964) was a Cuban Symbolist poet who changed his langua … [Click Below for Full Description]

Nato il 1910 - a undici anni - avevo già il sommo onore d'indossare la Camicia Nera, d'impugnare il manganello e d'intonare l'inno della Disperata, nel nome Vostro e della Vostra Idea. A Verona, mia città natale, presi parte - per quel tanto che i Comandanti mi permisero - a varie azioni purificatrici della resistenza sovversiva. ... In questo clima di battagliera passione si temprò la mia fanciullezza. ... nel 1926,... fondai e diressi il primo giornale giovanile fascista della scuola media di Verona. Passato regolarmente al G.U.F. e ai Fasci Giovanili di Combattimento nel 1930 - Anno IX - ebbi il passaggio al P.N.F. con la sesta leva nel 1932. ... Laureato in giurisprudenza all'Università di Milano, ebbi modo di affinare la mia attività di giornalista in Roma, nel 1933 al "Messaggero", nel 1934-35 al "Giornale d'Italia"... e nel 1935-36 al Ministero della Cultura Popolare (all … [Click Below for Full Description]

Luigi Bartolini (Cupramontana 1892 - Roma 1963)
1934. Acquaforte misure: mm 235 x 285 Pittore, scrittore, sceneggiatore ed incisore italiano. Dopo gli studi tecnici, compiuti a Jesi, si trasferisce nel 1907 a Siena, dove si iscrive all'Istituto di Belle Arti. Nel 1909 lo troviamo a Roma, dove frequenta l'Accademia di Belle Arti e le lezioni di anatomia, storia dell'arte e letteratura all'Università; all'Accademia di Spagna, a San Pietro in Montorio, segue i corsi di disegno e studia le incisioni di Goya. Fra il 1913 e il 1914 è a Firenze, dove segue lezioni di architettura e anatomia e la scuola di nudo annessa all'Accademia; resta colpito dalle incisioni di Giovanni Fattori e, agli Uffizi, studia le collezioni di antichi disegni e le acqueforti di Rembrandt e Callot. Con Bartolini l'incisione torna ad essere un mezzo di espressione poetica libera dal simbolismo e dal vedutismo allora in voga presso le accademie. L'artista forte della sua indomita libertà espressiva e nonostante il suo essere anticonvenzionale è oggi considerato uno dei più importanti incisori contemporanei del novecento. Nelle sue acqueforti prevale ora un tratteggio leggero (genere biondo), ora una ricerca del chiaroscuro alla Rembrandt (genere nero). Vengono rappresentati tre scarabei; uno all'interno della scatola riccamente lavorato nel chiaroscuro e gli altri due fuori, come se fossero uno studio per tale soggetto. Sul lato destro troviamo lo studio di due figure solo accennate mediante la linea di contorno. Impressione eccellente, dai neri decisi e con contrasti chiaroscurali che creano profondità e definiscono i soggetti rappresentati. Ottimo sta … [Click Below for Full Description]

GRAVES, Robert (1895-1985).
London: Arthur Barker, 1934. [Historical Fiction] FIRST EDITIONS. Two volumes, octavo (22 x 14 x 9cm). With a folding family tree of the Julio-Claudian dynasty to rear. Publisher's black cloth with gilt titles to spine, bottom edges untrimmed, illustrated dust-jackets. A used set with bookplate to first title, some spotting within, jackets uniformly worn with chips, tears and rubbing. Arguably the defining piece of Roman historical fiction from the twentieth century, Graves' classic fanciful autobiography of Rome's fourth Emperor builds a tangled web of family feuds and internecine murder from hints provided by Tacitus and Suetonius. The story was dramatised by the BBC in 1976, staring Derek Jacobi, and has since inspired the tone of the acclaimed series 'Rome' (2005-07). Graves was a gifted classicist at Charterhouse and later Oxford, but decided to pursue literature and poetry after he completed his degree. As well as contributing translations of Apuleius' 'The Golden Ass' and Suetonius' 'Twelve Caesars' to the Penguin Classics collection, he also published a controversial encyclopaedia of Greek Myths containing some of his own original theories, generally rejected by the academic community.
