        Tender is the Night

      Ex-library, with a rather attractive period label to the front board proclaiming this fact, as well as a number to the spine and numerous stamps throughout the book. The boards are slightly bumped, rubbed and marked. The text block is age toned, slightly foxed and stained and dog-eared. The dust jacket is the original and not price clipped, it is in four pieces(not to mention some odd fragments) and has been expertly conserved with minimal tissue backing to the reverse, it is toned and rubbed. In general the condition is fairly appalling, but the book is not without its charm, and such is the rarity of the jacket and the appeal of the bizarre artwork, which is utterly in contrast to that of the U.S. edition, that its many faults can be forgiven.

        L'Atlantide. Peintures et dessins du Hoggar de Paul-Elie Dubois, interprétés en gravure sur bois par Pierre Bouchet.

      Lyon, Cercle Lyonnais du Livre, 1934 ; in-4, demi-chagrin à coins "sable mouillé", dos à quatre nerfs encadrant l'auteur et le titre dorés, tête dorée, couverture blanche avec titre doré et dos conservés, tranches juste ébarbées ; (8), 303 pp. , (18) ff. : Table des matières et illustrations (2), achevé d'imprimer (1), liste des membres (2), planches remplacées (13 dont 2 bl.) ; 89 peintures et dessins de Dubois dont 8 hors-texte, 21 lettrines ornées de motifs décoratifs touareg ; les illustrations remplacées sont au nombre de sept. Premier tirage à 162 exemplaires sur vélin d'Arches dont cent vingt nominatifs (celui-ci pour le Docteur Jacques Rollet). "Paul-Elie Dubois a fait partie de la mission officielle envoyée au Hoggar en 1928. C'était la première fois qu'un peintre parcourait cette région mystérieuse. Il en a rapporté quantité de peintures, dessins, croquis et documents décoratifs, et c'est l'ensemble de son oeuvre que le Cercle Lyonnais du Livre a voulu conserver pour l'avenir. L'idée d'associer à cette documentation "L'Atlantide" de Pierre Benoit, de situer sur ce cadre réaliste la brillante fantaisie du roman, était trop séduisante pour ne pas emporter tous les suffrages. D'où la présente édition". Effectivement, cette édition est l'une des plus brillantes réussites du Cercle Lyonnais du Livre. Les peintures et dessins de Paul-Elie Dubois constituent un irremplaçable témoignage sur les Touareg du Sahara, une des plus grandes civilisations nomades au monde, qui se meurt lentement, broyée entre le monde arabe et l'Afrique noire. Très bel exemplaire.

        NEGRO ANTHOLOGY. Made by Nancy Cunard. 1931-1933. ---- With: Milton Howard. Some facts about the Scottsboro case.

      FIRST EDITION. First issue binding of rough brown cloth. 4to. Original brown cloth, lettered to spine and upper board in red. Rear board with the map of Black America, again printed in red. Top edge dyed brown. Fully illustrated throughout, including a large fold out colour printed map. A little rubbed at extremities, head of spine creased, spotting and toning to contents, some insect damage to the front endpapers and title page. Aside from the leaves with the insect holes this is a very good copy. Presentation copy inscribed by the author on the verso of the front blank, "To Josephine Herbst, Comradely, Nancy Cunard". Herbst (1892-1969) was an American writer and journalist and active member of the Communist Party. She had reported on the Scottsboro Boys case and contributed a piece to this Anthology (On pages 269 to 271), "Lynching in the Quiet Manner" on it. Loosely inserted in this copy is a typed letter signed from Cunard to Herbst reading, "Dear Collaborator, I am glad to be able to send you your copy of the Anthology you helped to make. As you see it is a very large volume and has, consequently, been very expensive to produce. It is therefore my hope that each collaborator will endeavour to secure an order for the sale of one copy, ordered direct from Messrs. Wishart, 9 John Street, Adelphi, London, or the usual booksellers. And, if possible, out of justice to our subject, to arouse interest in the press and reviews. Yours for the freeing of the innocent Scottsboro boys and the true emancipation of Negro peoples, Nancy Cunard". Loosely inserted is a rare 30pp mimeographed document, "Some Facts on the Scottsboro Case" by Milton Howard, dated January 1932, and issued by the Labor Research Association, New York.

        Autograph letter signed. Küsnacht, 2. XI. 1934.

      1934. Large 4to. 2 pp. In German, to Hedwig Fischer, widow of Samuel Fischer who was Mann's publisher, on his name-imprinted stationery. He writes in part: "I just want to send you a greeting, nothing more. Hardly a day has gone by since we got the death notification in Basel, after the return trip from Lugano, without our speaking of you and your husband, and the shock that we felt at the time continues to reverberate and will for a long time. One had to be braced for this farewell, indeed, ultimately one almost had to be for it; and yet I cannot say how it moved me when it became reality. Nearly four decades of cooperation! I was very attached to the deceased. There was a placid cordiality between us, the way I have rarely experienced it in relationships with people, and hardly ever was there a superficial clouding or disgruntlement. Our characters were compatible, and I always felt that I was the born author for him and he my born publisher. I hinted at some of this in the memorial article, which probably came to your attention in the Sunday supplement of the Basler Nachrichten. It is indeed strange the way I rein in my feelings on such occasions, involuntarily suppressing them and growing cold for the sake of psychology and characterization. I'm just not a poet, but must resort to objectivity and distancing. I wouldn't be surprised if this were painful to you in this case. I am myself more satisfied with the two short pages I sent even now for the [Deutsche] Rundschau's memorial issue for [Peter] Suhrkarnp. May this issue turn out to be a very beautiful monument! From Reisiger, who will be coming to visit us in a few days, we heard that the end was gentle and without consciousness. That's fine and well. And you? How has your heart taken the separation? When one has been living side by side for so long and has shared everything! As soon as one starts thinking about life, the tears start to come. Your publishing house has brought out many beautiful and interesting things recently. Extremely interesting the book on Charlemagne. Döblin is planning an essay on it for the Sammlung, I hear, although emigrants otherwise don't like to mention German books, i.e., published in Germany. But what I read from start to finish and with quite unusual interest, was [Martin] Gumpert's Hahnemann, a life I knew hardly anything about and which in this presentation moved me deeply. Farewell, and be comforted! Give my regards to your children and grandchildren, and regards to you".

        Autograph letter signed ("TE Shaw"). Southampton, 18. VII. 1934.

      1934. 8vo. 2 pp. and 2 lines on bifolium. "Dear Lady Young I wonder if you (and His Ex.) are still there? Your letter to me sat at 2 Smith Square (Sir H. B. not knowing my whereabouts) till last night, when I called and collected it. I am sorry. Most of my addresses are like that. Would you be so good as to register / T. E. Shaw / Clouds Hill / Moreton / Dorset / as my likeliest spot, in future? It represents my cottage on the heath, which will be home after March when the RAF bring themselves, not reluctantly, to dispense with my help? I'm sorry not to have seen you. I wanted, while you were yet in Nyasa-land, to beg of His Ex. The rectangular skin of a small (1 sq. yard) lion, for my hearth-rug. But Ronald Storrs whom I saw at Southampton about a month ago told me you had been promoted to his province, and that there were no lions. Ronald was physically a very sick man. Mentally he was fighting hard to keep brisk... too hard for his health, I fear. The wreck of an old companion is too near a sight for sorrow, even. I hope Africa suits, after your trial of Asia and Europe. My respects to the Governor! Tell him I saw the fraudulent Abdulla, the other day. Exactly as he was, body & mind. Now, that's the way. / Yours sincerely TE Shaw / A poor letter: but I picture you again in Africa, and my squib spluttering in the void". - Between 1916 to 1918, Abdullah I of Jordan worked with the British guerrilla leader T. E. Lawrence (with whom he had actually never jarred), and played a key role as architect and planner of the Great Arab Revolt against Ottoman rule, leading guerrilla raids on garrisons. From 1921 until his assassination in 1951, Abdullah ruled Jordan, first as Emir under a British Mandate from 1921 to 1946, then as King of an independent nation from 1946 onwards.

        Gas!" The Story of the Special Brigade.

      Edinburgh & London: William Blackwood & Sons Ltd., 1934 - Octavo. Original green cloth, gilt lettered spine and front cover. With the dust jacket. Jacket with a few old tape repairs on verso, spine toned, panels lightly soiled, a few chips and nicks and creases (small portion torn from bottom of front panel. An excellent copy with the publisher's 8 pp. publicity brochure loosely inserted. Portrait frontispiece of the author, 20 illustrations from photographs on 15 plates, 7 coloured maps (5 folding), 2 graphs. First edition, first impression, uncommon in the dust jacket. From the library of Captain W. H. Livens, with his ownership inscription on the front free endpaper; tipped-in to the verso of the front free endpaper is a typed letter signed from E. Stephen Brooks of The Times sending this as a review copy and requesting a review for both The Times and the TLS (dated 24 October 1934, The Times embossed letterhead); this is accompanied by Livens review (clipped by him from The Times, dated in his hand 30/10/34 and initialled at the foot). On the front free endpaper he has noted four references in the text relating to the Livens Projector, one of the most significant British tactical innovations on the Western Front. As Foulkes comments on page 87: "Livens. was a 'go-getter', and his name will often appear in the following pages". An important association copy: William Howard Livens (1889-1964) "was commissioned in the Royal Engineers in September 1914. After a spell as brigade signals officer he went to Chatham where he was in charge of motorcyclists. It was here in the spring of 1915, after the first German gas attack on the western front that, on his own initiative, he began to experiment with weapons for trench warfare. Soon he was asked to select recruits for the special companies of the Royal Engineers, then being formed in France by Colonel C. H. Foulkes for the purpose of retaliating with gas. He himself later went to France and became one of the company commanders. [in France he experimented with the means of delivering a gas attack:] Livens found a quantity of waste steel tubing which was made up into 8 inch projectors. Their range was just under a mile. The projector and bomb charged with lethal phosgene gas were first used at Beaumont Hamel on 13 November 1916 against a system of deep dugouts. The gas saturated the enemy shelters, inflicting many casualties and showing what could be done by firing salvos. Increased production of the new weapon made a much larger operation possible at Vimy Ridge on 4 April 1917. Livens observed from an aircraft 2000 detonated electrically and saw the gas travel 7 kilometres behind the German front line. Projectors became the principal allied gas weapon until the introduction of longer ranged shells charged with mustard and phosgene gas" (ODNB). [Attributes: First Edition]

        Die Tätowierung in den deutschen Hafenstädten. Ein Versuch zur Erfassung ihrer Formen und ihres Bildgutes

      Bremen: G. Winters Buchhandlung, 1934. First edition. 8vo, 111 pp, photographically illustrated wraps. Illustrated with b/w photographs. Text in German.The first and only edition of this important study on the tattoos and tattoo parlors of the German port cities. The book is illustrated with both close up photographs of some unique and beautiful work, but also depicts the shops, tattoo artists, and streets on which the tattoo studios were found. The footnotes and citations are among the most thorough of all the early modern tattoo books. Samuel Steward cites Hortst Streckenbach's opinion that this work, along with Joest, were the best German tattoo studies, especially with regard to the erotic aspects of tattoos [Steward, p. 195], and Jane Caplan cites it as "The outstanding German study." (Becker & Wetzell, p. 356 - footnote). The book is a remarkable accomplishment made poignant as shortly after the book was published every tattoo parlor in Germany was closed by order of Hitler, with the exception of a single shop in Hamburg, whose proprietor had to sign an agreement to only tattoo foreigners, as Hitler believed that tattoos were an impure imposition on aryan skin [Steward, p. 356]. Rare. OCLC locates only two holdings at the time of cataloguing. Wraps soiled, with tearing to head and foot of spine, leading to a loss of 2" to the paper covering the spine at the crown, and the book title inked to spine, and some light spotting to title page. Good only, but an intact example of a book that rarely appears on the market.

        Portrait photograph of the singer Fritzi Massary

      New York, 1934. Half-length frontal portrait. Gelatin silver print. 1 vols. 24.3 x 16.3 cm. (approximately 9-5/8 x 6-3/8 inches). Fine. Atelier stamp on verso, and docketed in pen, giving the name of the sitter ("Fritzi Massary, who sings 'Jede Frau hat irgendeine Sehnsucht', the date, and the print reference ("XXII G 12"). Half-length frontal portrait. Gelatin silver print. 1 vols. 24.3 x 16.3 cm. (approximately 9-5/8 x 6-3/8 inches). The Viennese-born singer and actress Fritzi Massary (1882-1969), was one of the icons the operetta and of silent films in the golden age of the twenties, and the most celebrated German-language singer of her day. In 1932, rising anti-Semitism drove her out of Germany to England, where she briefly pursued her career (Noel Coward wrote OPERETTE for her) and then to the United States, finally settling into the rich milieu of the German-speaking emigrés in Beverley Hills, where she died in 1969. Van Vechten's portrait of her at age 55, soon after her arrival in the States, beautifully frames the dignity and elegance of her features by her black cap, black hair, and black dress. This image, inscribed to Mauriber in 1944, is not in the Library of Congress collection (which has another from the same session). From the Estate of Saul Mauriber, Van Vechten's assistant, and the editor/compiler of PORTRAITS: THE PHOTOGRAPHY OF CARL VAN VECHTEN (1978); EXTRAVAGANT CROWD: Carl Van Vechten's Portraits of Women (Beinecke Library, Exhibition Catalogue, 2003)

        Gas!" The Story of the Special Brigade.

      Edinburgh & London: William Blackwood & Sons Ltd.,, 1934. Octavo. Original green cloth, gilt lettered spine and front cover. With the dust jacket. Portrait frontispiece of the author, 20 illustrations from photographs on 15 plates, 7 coloured maps (5 folding), 2 graphs. Jacket with a few old tape repairs on verso, spine toned, panels lightly soiled, a few chips and nicks and creases (small portion torn from bottom of front panel. An excellent copy with the publisher's 8 pp. publicity brochure loosely inserted. First edition, first impression, uncommon in the dust jacket. From the library of Captain W. H. Livens, with his ownership inscription on the front free endpaper; tipped-in to the verso of the front free endpaper is a typed letter signed from E. Stephen Brooks of The Times sending this as a review copy and requesting a review for both The Times and the TLS (dated 24 October 1934, The Times embossed letterhead); this is accompanied by Livens review (clipped by him from The Times, dated in his hand 30/10/34 and initialled at the foot). On the front free endpaper he has noted four references in the text relating to the Livens Projector, one of the most significant British tactical innovations on the Western Front. As Foulkes comments on page 87: "Livens... was a 'go-getter', and his name will often appear in the following pages". An important association copy: William Howard Livens (1889-1964) "was commissioned in the Royal Engineers in September 1914. After a spell as brigade signals officer he went to Chatham where he was in charge of motorcyclists. It was here in the spring of 1915, after the first German gas attack on the western front that, on his own initiative, he began to experiment with weapons for trench warfare. Soon he was asked to select recruits for the special companies of the Royal Engineers, then being formed in France by Colonel C. H. Foulkes for the purpose of retaliating with gas. He himself later went to France and became one of the company commanders... [in France he experimented with the means of delivering a gas attack:] Livens found a quantity of waste steel tubing which was made up into 8 inch projectors. Their range was just under a mile. The projector and bomb charged with lethal phosgene gas were first used at Beaumont Hamel on 13 November 1916 against a system of deep dugouts. The gas saturated the enemy shelters, inflicting many casualties and showing what could be done by firing salvos. Increased production of the new weapon made a much larger operation possible at Vimy Ridge on 4 April 1917. Livens observed from an aircraft 2000 detonated electrically and saw the gas travel 7 kilometres behind the German front line. Projectors became the principal allied gas weapon until the introduction of longer ranged shells charged with mustard and phosgene gas" (ODNB).

Molto raro documento di quel periodo, Blanchot ha distrutto la maggior parte del manoscritto di quel periodo. In allegato: i progetti di manoscritti composti da citazioni di Nietzsche. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Manuscrit autographe de l'auteur de 1 page in-8, vraisemblablement inédit.   Manuscrit recto seul incomplet, à l'écriture dense, comportant quelques corrections et ajouts, au verso d'un relevé imprimé des abonnements au Journal des Débats, période de mai 1934 jusqu'à mai 1935.   Ce texte de Maurice Blanchot a probablement été écrit peu après la démission du Président du Conseil (et ancien Président de la République), Gaston Doumergue, survenue le 8 novembre 1934. Le jeune homme est alors rédacteur en chef au Journal des Débats et ce manuscrit semble être un brouillon d'article consacré à la carrière de Doumergue, et resté vraisemblablement inédit, après son départ du gouvernement où il avait été appelé au lendemain des manifestations de février 1934. Il fait partie des rares manuscrits de cette époque encore conservés : Blanchot a en effet détruit la plupart de ses écrits des années 1930, reniant sa participation active et politique à la presse d'extrême-droite. Dans ce texte, Blanchot loue les talents de politicien de Doumergue : « Toute la carrière de Doumergue est marquée par une progression constante. Elle va par un perfectionnement remarquable vers le moment de sa vie où il tentera non seulement de gouverner mais d'améliorer les moyens du gouvernement. C'est cette sorte de dialectique qui le met à part comme homme et comme homme d'Etat. »   Rare manuscrit des années 1930.

      Bound collection of 51 original photographic prints (sheet size 10 5/8" x 13 5/8"; image sizes approx. 8" x 11"), created by the official photographers to the Exposition, showing compellingly composed and beautifully printed views of the grounds, buildings, and context of the World's Fair that celebrated the 100th anniversary of the founding of Chicago and which was critical in disseminating an Art Deco aesthetic to a wide American public, each photograph hand-captioned in pencil under the image. Folio. Bound in full blue tooled leather, sleekly decorated with gilt details. Chicago (Kaufmann- Fabry) n.d. (ca. 1934).

A mysterious stranger in varicolored clothes appeared and offered to rid the town of the destructive vermin for a specified sum of money. The leaders of the town agreed to the contract, and the stranger began to play his pipe. The rats came swarming from the buildings and followed him to the River Weser, where they drowned. But when the town leaders refused to make the agreed payment the Pied Piper returned once more to play his pipe. This time, however, it was all the children of the town whom he enchanted and lured away to vanish behind a door in the Koppenberg hill. Robert Browning told the story in his poem The Pied Piper of Hamelin in 1842.Latimore and Haskell, p. 71. Riall, p. 186.

        The Murder Market.

      London: Herbert Jenkins, 1934.. FIRST EDITION. Octavo, pp.312, [8 of adverts]. Publisher's orange cloth with black titles to spine and front board, in a wonderfully sinister pictorial dustjacket (possibly designed by 'olive', somewhat indecipherable artists facsimile signature to dustwrapper). Incredibly bright and clean internally, jacket shows equally well with just some creasing and nicking along the top and bottom edges, one small closed tear to the rear panel with a crease where the resulting flap had been folded over, now flattened and presentable, some slight rubbing to spine. A cracking copy, unusually bright and fresh.
