        An African-American Family Photograph Album from “America’s Oldest Negro Community.”

      Gouldtown, New Jersey, 1934-1944. This 7” x 11” album contains approximately 85 photographs (most 3.5” x 4.75”) glued to 20 leaves. The photographs are in nice shape; many are captioned. The album cover is well-worn. The first photograph in the album is of a pre-teen boy and titled “Harold L. Valentine, Jr. Dec 25, 1934” in the margin; underneath is a pencil annotation reading, “Me”. Valentine born in 1923, lived in Gouldtown until his death in 1977. Most of the photographs show Valentine’s family and home, the family’s goats, horses, and chicken houses, family vehicles, a man and woman playing guitars, Valentine's father in his white “Coca-Cola” uniform, and other views of the area. Valentine served as a Tech Sergeant in the Army Air Force during World War II, and many of the final 30 photographs in the album show African-American men in uniform at home and at a military base. This is an important visual record of mid-20th century African-American life in one of the most historic African-American enclaves. Gouldtown, which is located about 60 miles south of Philadelphia, was christened “America’s Oldest Negro Community” by Ebony magazine in 1952. It traces its roots to the 1700s when a freedman, named Benjamin Gould, married the granddaughter of wealthy English nobleman, John Fenwick, who had settled in America. Community lore holds that in the mid-1700s two mixed-race brothers, who were previously indentured servants, arrived from the West Indies, settled near the Goulds and began families of their own after purchasing the passage of two ‘mail-order-brides’ from the Netherlands. Shortly thereafter, a mixed-race couple (white and Native American) arrived from Cape May. It was descendants of these four families that formed the core of Gouldtown’s population well into the latter half of 20th century.

        Collection of seven daily calendar journals kept by a Los Angeles Policewoman

      Los Angeles, 1934-1955. Seven daily calendars (approximately 5.5” x 8”) kept by Los Angeles Policewoman Sidney A. Ball between the years 1934 and 1955. Some calendars have more content than others; overall about 20% of the pages have entries. A number of newspaper clippings, notes, and department forms are attached or laid-in. The spine covering for 1955 is missing. All have some wear and soiling. Most of the entries in Ball’s daily calendars concern routine events, lists of officers and inspectors, lunch and dinner engagements, contacts, addresses, parties, opera and theater dates (“Oklahoma!”), Hollywood Bowl concerts, staff birthdays, attorney meetings, retirements, movies (Grauman’s Chinese and Egyptian), police functions, books (Alinsky’s Reveille for Radicals), an Admiral Byrd lecture (“He has penguins with him.”), vehicles and license plate numbers, trips (Acapulco, Death Valley, Alaska, Michigan, Canada, New England), recipes, Mexico shopping lists, etc. However, several multi-page entries in some of the calendars appear to be course notes, perhaps from the ground-breaking classes specifically for policewomen provided by the University of California at Los Angeles, and many entries relate to Ball's police work. The entries made while Ball was working at the jail or with vice are quite telling about her job; simultaneously humorous and depressing. Here are a few of them: * 17 Jan 1937 – “Ed. Threw snowball at motorcycle officer – I take blame.” * 2 Jul 1946 – “74 men killed in line of duty – no pension . . . Just what is the protection offered for our $5.80?” * 31 Jan 1947 – “Tonight we booked a mean old Irish Biddy – who told me I looked like a mean old Bull-dog – later when I went close to where she was she said Say, There’s going to be a dog show in Glendale on Sunday. Wish I could enter you.” * 10 Mar 1947 – “Drunk arrested accused of Prostitution denied charge – ‘I only tricks with my Boy Friend he takes Five tricks a day and gives me $10.00’” * 19 Apr 1947 = “D.T. in drunk tank There is a man in tree who just shot an arrow at me – There he is an indian he had a feather in his hair.” * 8 Jan 1950 – “Came in with 25 good rings – 7 w.m. watches some diamond incrusted + 5 of the rings must have cost around 1000.00 – married to Colonel N. . . . living with 3 men off E. 5th Children locked in garage set fire with candles” * 23 Feb 1950 – “Mamie Floyd came in with . . . long blade knife – White handle. Mamie said knife was hers She carried it to kill man who killed her Bro – No one could mess with her blood” * 19 Aug 1950 – “She was Samoan – Had been a dancer – even when drunk walked with a graceful elegance – Had a proud look – verging on a sneer – But corrupt language & a fighter when drunk. Narco-Mainliner . . . Brilliant became user thru illness” * 16 Nov 1950 – “Richardson, Nellie Bk Very nasty with p/w Smith when being booked – Kept calling her “nigger’ take hands off me – what they would do to her in South – Pled with her to behave – Miss Smith never said anything in return . . . claimed Smith broke her arm – went to X-Ray following day 1015a – Negative!” * 14 Dec 1954 – “Wo prisoner bit finger off. Found by trusty who went to clean-up stepped on finger.” * 10 Feb 1955 – “I’m glad you officers caught me and got here when you did this man was about to ride me to death.” “Yes, I’m married but here on a visit and wanted to try a strange piece.” This is a fascinating record providing insight into the life of an early female professional in a career-field dominated by men. Sergeant Ball, who retired with over 35 years of service in 1965, was one of very few female officers when she joined the Los Angeles Police in 1929. Although women had served as jail matrons or in specialized social-work-type positions in other forces, the Los Angeles Police Department became the first department to routinely employ policewomen with powers of arrest when in 1910, it swore in Alice Wells and assigned her badge number “1”. By 1937, the department employed 39 policewomen; one was Sidney A. Ball (nee Kirkpatrick and later Retzer)

        Mercantilism

      1934 - HECKSCHER, Eli F. Mercantilism. London: George Allen & Unwin, (1934). Octavo, original green cloth, original dust jackets. $2200.First edition in English of this economic history of Europe from the 16th to the 18th century focusing on identifying the key characteristics of mercantilism, translated by Mendel Shapiro, in original dust jackets.One of the great classics of economic history, Mercantilism explores the role of mercantilist ideas in Europe over two centuries. Though Heckscher acknowledges the problems with setting forth a strict definition for mercantilism, he succeeds in laying out a set of mercantilism's fundamental characteristics. Today, mercantilism is largely regarded as a system of economic nationalism meant to create wealthy nations by reducing imports and increasing exports""a system often leading to global imbalances and war. While for much of the 20th century Heckscher's work was ignored due to concerns about the rise of the far left, its relevance is again clear as new concerns emerge about power imbalances with regard to a totalitarian right. Heckscher, writing as fascist governments were gaining power all over Europe, offers important insight into the economic conditions that lead""and have always led""to great danger in Europe and, indeed, worldwide. His analysis of 16th to 18th century Europe was meant to be relevant in the tumultuous political and economic environment that marked 1934, but it is no less relevant today. First published in Swedish in 1931. This first edition in English was prepared from the German edition and was revised by the author. Books fine, price-clipped dust jackets with light wear and toning to extremities. A near-fine copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        LA MAISON TELLIER. Illustrations d'Edgar Degas.

      Ambroise Vollard, Paris 1934. 1 volume in-4 (340 x 270 mm) en feuilles, couverture illustrée rempliée. table des illustrations in fine sous chemise. Célèbre édition illustrée de 46 compositions dont 19 GRAVURES SUR CUIVRE EN HORS-TEXTE DONT 2 EN COULEURS SUR JAPON et 17 bois dont certains en hors-texte gravés par Aubert. Les gravures furent réalisées par Maurice Potin d'après les monotypes d' Edgar Degas (1834-1917) achetés par Ambroise Vollard à René Degas avant la vente de l'atelier du peintre. Vollard entreprit l'édition de deux ouvrages : La Maison Tellier de Guy de Maupassant et Mimes des Courtisanes de Pierre Louÿs. Il s'adressa au peintre-graveur Maurice Potin pour reproduire sur cuivre ces scènettes de maisons closes que Degas appelait lui-même ses "petits plats du jour". M. Potin réussit à merveille à pénètrer la sensibilité du dessin et la subtilité des tons de Degas. L'entreprise prit 6 ans aux deux hommes pour faire paraitre les deux ouvrages. Tirage unique à 350 exemplaires numérotés sur vélin de Rives. 1 book, 4to, in loose leaves under the original illustrated wrappers. 46 compositions after Degas (1834-1917) comprising 19 copper etchings (2 in color printed on japan paper) and 17 woodcuts by Aubert. 1 of the 325 numbered copies printed on vellum paper. Très bon exemplaire en feuilles en excellent état, tel que paru/ Les 19 gravures sont sous une chemise papier à rabats insérée en fin d'ouvrage. Excellent copy of this celebrated edition by Vollard.

        Autograph Letter in Japanese calligraphic script to Lou Gehrig, from "the Children of Japan"

      [Japan 1934 - Pen and ink on long folded sheet of paper. 36 x 7 in. Presented to Lou Gehrig from the Children of Japan. Gehrig barnstormed around Japan in 1934, joined by Babe Ruth, his manager Connie Mack and a dozen other players. Gehrig brought his wife Eleanor, intending the trip to be the first leg of their delayed honeymoon. Gehrig and Ruth were no longer on speaking terms, and an encounter between Eleanor and Ruth involving prodigious amounts of champagne and caviar in the slugger's cabin further cemented the estrangement. The present letter, written in Japanese and presented to Gehrig from "the children of Japan," is a touching note offering good wishes to Gehrig's mother, with whom he was very close.Translation of the presentation letter:Dear Mr. Gehrig: "I am very happy to learn that you are a good filial son to your Mom. I hear that fact from someone and read about it in a magazine. I like and respect my own Mother very much. So, I would like to give something from Japan to your Mom. I was thinking and thinking, but I could not know what was a good and appropriate gift.After much consideration and thought, I decided it might be good to send your Mom the Nippon Shichi Fukujin or Japan's Seven Lucky Gods. It is close to Christmas - your country. So these Seven Lucky Gods will bring many happinesses to your Mom. This is really a 'tsumaranai mono,' not-so-fine a thing, a trifling thing of no major importance whatsoever. I wish some Japanese person in the US to explain to you about the Seven Lucky Gods. I hope you and your Mom will have a good fortune. I ask the Seven Lucky Gods to bring this gift to you. I am afraid the gift for your Mom is not so fine. Japanese children said to you, Mr. Gehrig, 'yoroshiku' to say 'hello' to you and your Mom. For a long time you have been active and working hard. Please come to Japan again. With your Mom! To have sightseeing. The children of Japan. November."[With:] 3 books on Japanese culture and tourism from Gehrig's library.From the collection of Ruth Martin Quick, a former girlfriend of Gehrig who later became a very close friend of Gehrig's mother, Christina. The collection included Gehrig's jersey worn on the 1934 Japan trip (which sold for over $500,000 at auction in 2011), a signed baseball, and other memorabilia. Provenance: Jeffrey Quick of Whippany, N.J., son of Ruth Martin Quick, a friend of Lou Gehrig Pen and ink on long folded sheet of paper. 36 x 7 in [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        COUP DE POING DANS L'AFFAIRE: DESSINS ROUGE. No 1

      Paris: Association des Ecrivains et des Artistes Revolutionaires, [1934].. [1934].. Fair. - Quarto, 12-1/2 inches high by 9-3/4 inches wide. Softcover, reddish orange wrappers printed in black & white with a full page caricature by Yvette Guilbert on the back cover. The soiled and heavily chipped covers are detached. There are several tears and small pieces out from the edges of the covers. Several tears to the bottom edge of the front cover have been reinforced with archival linen tape from the verso. 20 pages, including the covers, with textual and full-page illustrations by the French caricaturists of the period, including contributions by Antoni, Deupe, Gosse, Andres, Jimmy Oawks, Enri, Schmied, Antek, Pogolotti, Sagette, Yvette Guilbert. The text includes a poem by Jacques Moulin "Dedie a Henri Willemin", the satirical "Petit cours de Medecine pratique" by Le Bon Docteur, "Petites explications pour ceux qui n'auraient par compris les evenements" by Jimmy Oawks, and numerous biting captions serving as titles to the illustrations. The pages are darkened with short tears and chips to the edges. A complete but fragile issue, well worth restoring due to its rarity. <p>Biting political satire about the Stavisky Affair distributed by the left wing Association des Ecrivains et des Artistes Revolutionaires.<p>Founded in March 1932 the Association was a section of the International Union of Revolutionary Writers, which the Comintern had founded a couple of years earlier. The AEAR was a French association founded by communist and communist sympathizing writers in opposition to war and fascism. Henri Cartier Bresson, Luis Bunuel, Max Ernst, Andre Gide, and Man Ray were, for a time, among the notable members of the association.<p>A 1934 financial scandal, The Stavisky Affair was generated by the actions and dealings of the embezzler Alexandre Stavisky (1888-1934). Politicians and investors were swept up in Stavisky's schemes. He sold hundreds of millions of francs worth of false bonds on the city of Bayonne's municipal pawnshops. First charged with fraud in 1927, his trial was postponed over and over again as Stavinsky, known as "Le Beau Sasha", was granted bail 19 times. In the interim, one judge was found decapitated and the affair culminated with Stavisky's "suicide", though speculation persisted that the police killed him. As suggested by "Le Canard enchaine", if it was indeed suicide Stavisky must have had "a long arm". Right wing accusations that the police had killed Stavisky to protect influential people led to the resignation of French premier Camille Chautemps. His successor Daladier, from the Radical-Socialist Party, immediately fired the right-wing Paris Police prefect Jean Chiappe as well as the director of the Comedie Francaise. The new Interior minister, Eugene Frot, announced that demonstrators would be shot. The events led to an attempted right-wing putsch fomented by Action Francaise, the Croix-de-Feu, the Mouvement Franciste and a collection of anti- Semitic, monarchist and fascist groups. The riots resulted in 14 deaths at the hands of the police. Daladier was himself forced to resign and his successor, the conservative Gaston Doumergue formed a coalition cabinet. The affair inspired the 1937 Hollywood movie "Stolen Holiday" starring Claude Rains, and the later 1974 Alain Resnais film "Stavisky" starring Jean-Paul Belmondo.<p>RARE.
