        Tobacco, Pipes and Smoking Customs of the American Indians

      2 volumes: 477 pages with one plate, maps, figures and index; 257 pages including maps. Quarto (10 3/4" x 7") issued in wrappers. Bulletin of the Public Museum of the City of Milwaukee, Volume XVII. First edition. Tobacco was smoked in the Americas long before its organized cultivation began somewhere around 5000 to 3000 BC. Tobacco use was ceremonial and ritualistic for the natives with the leaf not only being smoked, but also chewed, drunk, taken as snuff and even given as enema. Tobacco was considered as a means of communicating with the supernatural world and was also believed to have medicinal properties. Mayans considered it a divine plant and many Mayan gods are depicted smoking. The name tobacco came from a misunderstanding of the Spaniards who thought the dried leaves were called tobacco when the indigenous name tabaco actually meant the tube or pipe in which the natives smoked the leaves. Tobacco was introduced in the court of Catherine de Medici in 1560 by Jean Nicot. The word nicotine was coined. Condition:Edge wear with some closed tears and chips, spines sunned, some light foxing, corners bumped, front wrapper volume I detached else a very good copy.

        File of correspondence and typescript; 1941

      Rusty paper clip mark and resultant tear to corner of about five pages; some soil. 9 pages, with additional printed folio leaf on newsprint. Sam Darcy, a high ranking official in CPUSA, had been dispatched by party chairman Earl Browder, who viewed him as a rival, to the west coast, on the notion that he would slip into obscurity. In San Francisco, Darcy became even more influential, organizing farm workers and maritime workers and heading up the 1934 strike of longshoremen. This file centers on Darcy's arrest and incarceration on a charge of perjury. In 1941, he was convicted of having lied on his voter registration application upon moving to California, by misstating his place of birth. His case became a rallying point for the left, as it was clear that Darcy was being persecuted for his political beliefs. The present file consists of the following: 3 TLS from Darcy's wife Emma to John M. Weatherwax, a communist activist and sometime journallst in LA, who served as a go-between for Darcy and the Pasadena patron of left-wing causes, Kate Crane-Gartz. A carbon TL and a two-page carbon TLS, annotated, from Darcy to Mrs. Gartz, first thanking her for her poem about him, and second asking at length for her financial backing for his appeal; TLS from Darcy to Weatherwax, amplifying his plea for help. Along with one of Emma Darcy's letters, she has included a three-page typescript statement by Sam Darcy, written as a kind of letter to his supporters while he was jailed, in which he argues in his own defense as a victim of political persecution and appeals to a patriotic understanding of American civil liberties. Also present is a printed copy of a full-page newspaper ad that Darcy's camp ran in the communist "People's World' under the headline "Are You A Criminal? You Don't Know Yet--" and going on to list numerous officials and prominent citizens who had made similar bureaucratic paperwork errors and suffered no consequence. A rare and substantive file from a significant chapter in the history of the American left.

        Autograph letter signed "Po Mascagni" to the famed Italian composer Ottorino Respighi.

      1 page (ca. 106 x 136 mm.). Dated Rome, December 25, 1934. On a notecard with the emblem and name of the Reale Accademia d'Italia embossed in blue to upper left corner. In Italian (with translation). With original autograph envelope, ca. 112 x 143 mm., addressed "a Sua Eccelenza Maestro Ottorino Respighi Teatro Reale dell' Opera - Roma" with the name and emblem of the Accademia embossed to verso. "I am sorry for not having attended the performance of Fiamma. I offer my sincere congratulations on the success that has crowned [your] noble endeavor... " Edges very lightly browned; minor remnants of adhesive to corners of blank verso; envelope slighlty worn. Together with a vintage bust-length photograph of a youngish Mascagni in profile. Ca. 206 x 127 mm. Slightly worn; minor remnants of adhesive to blank verso. La fiamma (1931-3), Respighi's "last and most frequently performed large-scale opera," was first performed at the Opera in Rome on January 23, 1934. John C.G. Waterhouse, et al. in Grove Music Online. Mascagni, distinguished as both a composer and conductor, is perhaps best-known for his opera Cavalleria rusticana, which "was enormously successful from its first performance at the Costanzi in Rome in 1890. From then on Mascagni spent the rest of his long career treating a wide variety of subjects. His next opera, L'amico Fritz (1891), consolidated his success with Roman audiences, and revealed his lyrical vein. This fluent rustic comedy was successful particularly because melodic vitality - the outstanding merit of Cavalleria - was combined with a more elegant harmonic idiom." Michele Girardi in Grove Music Online.

        The Free Fishers, in Chambers's Journal. [7 Parts, first appearance].

      London: W. and R. Cahmbers. 1934. First magazine issue publication of Buchan's The Free Fishers, published in Chambers Journal between January and July 1934. Publisher's decorated orange paper wraps. Bright and clean, minor edgewear, very good indeed with some very minor chipping to spine ends and edges. A very bright clean set. In addition to the Buchan there's the usual smattering of adventure fiction, articles on Oyster Culture in Scotland, how to secure Australia against the Dingo menace and a blizzard of advertisments for pipe tobacco, support garments, catarrh cures and the treatment of mental health issues vying for place with cases of thin wine biscuits and a "useful folding cake stand". Splendid stuff, scarce in periodical form and even scarcer in this splendid condition.

        MARLENE DIETRICH / THE SCARLET EMPRESS (1934)

      Paramount 1934 - Vintage original 11 x 14" (28 x 35 cm.) double weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Marlene Dietrich, Sam Jaffe, John Loder, C. Aubrey Smith, Gavin Gordon, dir: Josef von Sternberg; Paramount. A very lovely portrait of Marlene Dietrich as the young princess for one of film history's most truly bizarre movies. Perhaps this was Sternberg's answer for Dietrich to her great competitor Greta Garbo's Queen Christina. While that film attempted to tell an accurate historical account of a historic queen, this film was a major experiment in style. The basis was the story of Princess Sophia of Germany who is taken to Russia to marry half-wit Grand Duke Peter (played with aplomb insanity by Jaffe). The Princess is repulsed by him, finds love with a Russian soldier and produces a son. No one asks questions and she moves on to become Catherine the Great. Much of the film was silent and drenched in gothic sets, set pieces and artifice, shot through diffusions of all kinds and lit in expressionistic ways which have never been duplicated. It became an homage by Sternberg (who was by now obsessed) to Dietrich. Dietrich is dressed demurely by Travis Banton. Double weight, oversized portraits of Dietrich from her Sternberg films are exceedingly uncommon. There are single pinholes at each of the top corners and the bottom left corner has a tiny nick in it, ABOUT FINE

        Bréviaire des échecs

      Paris: Librairie Stock, 1934. xii+318 pages with diagrams. Small octavo (7" x 4 3/4") bound in orange cloth with gilt lettering in black label to spine and black lettering to red label to front cover. Inscribed to Julius du Mont. First edition.This work is an introductory book on chess written by Xavier Tartakover and published in 1934 and now considered a classic. Tartakover drafted the Breviary after its best period of activity, which has earned him the title of International Grand Master in 1950. The book has a strong focus on openings, chess theory; however, the playful tone of the Breviary not only makes it accessible to novice players but also inimitable and distracting.Julius du Mont (December 15, 1881, Paris â€" April 7, 1956, Hastings, England) was a pianist, piano teacher, chess player, journalist, editor and writer. He studied music at the Frankfurt Conservatoire and at Heidelberg, and became a concert pianist. He emigrated to England as a young man and became a successful piano teacher. Among his pupils was Edna Iles. He settled in London and also gained a reputation as a strong chess player. He won club and county chess championships in the period leading up to World War I, and showed his mastery of the English language by writing a manual on the Lewis gun. After the war, chess writing took up more and more of his time. Perhaps his most famous work was 500 Master Games of Chess (1952), written in collaboration with Savielly Tartakower.Condition:Inscribed on the half title page. Corners bumped, scattered foxing to preliminary leaves, some internal soiling, modern cloth with original wrapper laid on front cover, slightly scuffed else a very good copy of a very unique association copy.

        I, Claudius : from the autobiography of Tiberius Claudius, born B.C. 10, murdered and deified A.D. 54; [with] Claudius the God and His Wife Messalina

      New York Harrison Smith and Robert Haas [through 1935] MCMXXXIV [1934] First American Editions (no additional printings noted) in First State bindings. Tall, thick 8vo's: 494, with with title page vignette and folding genealogical table of Tree of the Imperial Family and Connexions; 583,[1], with title page vignette and two folding genealogical tables, of the Royal Family of the Herods and of the Tree of the Imperial Family. Publisher's navy blue cloth, spines stamped in gilt, medallions stamped in blind (I, Claudius) and gilt (Claudius the God) on upper covers; pictorial dust jackets, I, Claudius priced $3.00 with "recommended by the Book-of-the-Month Club" decal on upper cover, Claudius the God unpriced and unclipped. (Speculation abounds as to whether this is actually the book-club issue, but aside from the unpriced jacket it is otherwise identical to the first trade edition. What's more, the jacket's back panel contains a list of 40 Smith and Hass titles, all priced, highly unusual for any book-club edition.) An uncommonly bright set, about Fine (evidence of neat, partial book plate removal from upper paste down of Claudius the God), in better than Near Fine jackets without tears or chips but spine panels faded (as inevitably). In 1934, Graves was awarded the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for both volumes. Higginson A42b and A43b. ¶ Graves's fictional autobiography of the Roman Emperor Claudius, using psychological realism in a story of political intrigue in first century Rome. Claudius the God and His Wife Messalina soon followed, and the publication of these books brought Graves international recognition and some financial stability. "Before Graves, this literary form was seldom other than a romance, contemporary to whatever age in which it was written and covered over with a thin veneer reminiscent of exotic climates and distant times and places. Graves, however, uses the form of the historical novel not to disguise the present but to explore and bring to light the past. . . . It is a measure of Graves's talent and skill that he can make his evocation of the past seem real and vivid, even to those with a solid grounding in the history of the early Roman Empire."

All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        Lost Archive of 66 Glass Photographic Slides recording the Epic Trans-African Journey of Theresa Wallace and Florence Blenkiron from London to Cape Town in 1934.

      The sixty six glass slides of these two pioneering women form a valuable record of an epic journey across Africa on a Panther motorcycle and sidecar. Equipped with a revolver and fifty rounds of ammunition the two travellers headed straight across the Sahara, through Equatorial Africa and South to the Cape, for the most part off road and for the whole journey without even a compass. These images provide an insight into a remarkable adventure by two women who managed to overcome the prejudices and problems of their day as well as the physically demanding task of travelling some 7500 miles by motorcycle.

The binding is tight and square with some dust darkening to the uncut edges of the fore edge of the text block.

        Appointment in Samarra [First State]

      First Edition, as stated New York Harcourt, Brace 1934 First Edition, so stated, with the publisher's errata slip tipped tipped in between the copyright and dedication pages, denoting the first state. 8vo: [6],302pp. Publisher's black cloth, spine lettered in gold, top edge stained yellow; second-state pictorial dust jacket (with reviews on back panel), correctly priced $2.50. Fine, square and tight (positively unread), pages immaculate; in a Very Good, completely unrestored jacket, marred chiefly by a v-shaped, one-inch loss to head of the spine, affecting the letters 'ntment' and 'rra;' otherwise clean and vibrant. The author's seminal first novel, easily his most desirable and scarcest work. Bruccoli A2.1.a. Modern Library 100, 22. Time 100. Fine "O'Hara did for fictional Gibbsville, Pennsylvania, what Faulkner did for Yoknapatawpha County, Mississippi: surveyed its social life and drew its psychic outlines. But he did it in utterly worldly terms, without Faulkner's taste for mythic inference or the basso profundo of his prose. Julian English is a man who squanders what fate gave him. He lives on the right side of the tracks, with a country club membership and a wife who loves him. His decline and fall, over the course of just 72 hours around Christmas, is a matter of too much spending, too much liquor and a couple of reckless gestures. . . . That his calamity is petty and preventable only makes it more powerful." Time 100 Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.
