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.

        1700 Cocktails From the Man Behind the Bar [Together with] 1800 and all that Drinks - Ancient & Modern

      London: William Heinemann, / The St Catherine's Press,, 1934 / 1937. Two works, small octavo. Original green leather, titles to spines gilt. With the illustrated dust jacket. A few advertisement illustrations within. Two newspaper cuttings with cocktail recipes laid in. First work with titles dulled at the spine, and a few minor scuffs to the leather, internally entirely sound and fresh, with the jacket sunned to spine and bears a few chips and tears to the ends and corners, a very good copy overall. The second work in exquisite condition, sound and clean, with the jacket bearing only a few closed tears to the top edge and a few other minor marks, but overall in excellent condition. First editions, first impressions, both of de Fleury's scarce but classic cocktail recipe books presented together with the very scarce dust jackets over the publisher's full leather bindings. At the time de Fleury's 1700 Cocktails was the most comprehensive to be included in one book. The author's note in his follow up volume 1800 and all that reads "This volume, though complete in itself, is intended as a companion to my previous book... the two together forming a complete library of all kinds of drinks through the ages to the present day. Up to now I do not know of any book which gives the formulae and methods of preparation of the drinks that were so popular during the 18th and 19th centuries, and I have therefore traced a good number of these and included them in this volume, as I feel sure there would be a demand for them if people only knew how to prepare them." A handsome pairing, rare thus.

Sali' infatti il Monte S. lorenzo nel 1943 e organizzo' varie spedizioni con Carlo Mauri e Monzino. Importanti furono anche le sue ricerche cartografiche e naturalistiche. ITA

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

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."

Autografo Eccezionale firmata dall'autore André Malraux: "André Malraux con fiducia e speranza André Breton.». Sorprendente incontro tra due scrittori di "carattere profondamente dissimili." Eppure il destino di Malraux e Breton hanno attraversato almeno due volte. La prima nel 1924, mentre Malraux, giovane autore quasi sconosciuto, è stato arrestato per il caso di Angkor. Breton raccoglie Clara Malraux casa e offre il suo aiuto per liberare Malraux supplica il caso in "Literary News": "" Impariamo dai giornali che il giovane autore di Lunes en papier (...) è "colpevole" di violenza sulla persona di due o tre ballerini in pietra, quasi sconosciuto in un tempio di Angkor nelle vicinanze. Chi si preoccupa davvero di] una conservazione nei loro paesi di origine, queste opere di ieri? non voglio sapere, ma non riesco a pensare senza emozione che (...) André Malraux (...) sarà impedito (...) realizzare, chissà, un lavoro superiore che ha minacciato "Fu nel 1934 che i due uomini si ritrovano dopo le sommosse del 6 febbraio. André Malraux firmare la" Chiamata alla lotta "e" Indagine Unità di Azione "scritto da Breton contro la" minaccia fascista vero che emerse in Francia il 6 febbraio. "Questa posizione porterà alla creazione del" Comitato di vigilanza degli intellettuali antifascisti ", che uniscono i due scrittori. Questo impegno comune nasce un'amicizia discreta ma duratura. Breton e menzionato più volte nel discorso di Malraux al Congresso degli scrittori sovietici. Dopo la guerra, sarà due volte la lode Malraux definendolo "uno dei più qualificati degli spiriti del tempo." Dedizione Precious riferimento alla loro premonizione comune e surreale del prossimo grande romanzo titolo antifascista combattimento Malraux. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale pour laquelle il n'a pas été tiré de grands papiers, un des exemplaires du service de presse. Exceptionnel envoi autographe signé de André Breton à André Malraux : " à André Malraux avec confiance et espoir. André Breton". Surprenante rencontre entre deux écrivains à "la nature profondément dissemblable". Pourtant les destins de Malraux et de Breton se sont croisés au moins à deux reprises. La première en 1924, alors que Malraux, jeune auteur presque inconnu, est arrêté pour l'affaire d'Angkor. Breton recueille chez lui Clara Malraux et lui offre son aide pour faire libérer Malraux dont il plaide la cause dans les "Nouvelles littéraires" :" « Nous apprenons par les journaux que le jeune auteur de Lunes en papier (...) s'est rendu « coupable » de rapt sur la personne de deux ou trois danseuses de pierre, dans un temple presqu'inconnu des environs d'Angkor. Qui se soucie réellement de ]a conservation, dans leur pays d'origine, de ces œoeuvres d'antan ? je ne veux pas le savoir, mais je ne puis penser sans émotion qu'(...) André Malraux (...) va se trouver empêché (...) de réaliser, qui sait, une œoeuvre plus haute que celle qu'il a menacée » C'est en 1934 que les deux hommes se retrouvent à la suite des émeutes du 6 février. André Malraux signe "l'Appel à la lutte" et "l'Enquête sur l'Unité d'Action" rédigés par Breton contre le " réel danger fasciste qui s'est manifesté en France le 6 février". Cette prise de position conduira à la création du "Comité de vigilance des intellectuels antifascistes" auquel adhèrent les deux écrivains. De cet engagement commun naîtra une amitié discrète mais durable. Breton citera ainsi à plusieurs reprise le discours de Malraux au congrès des écrivains soviétiques. Après guerre, il fera à deux reprises l'éloge de Malraux le qualifiant de "l'un des esprits les mieux qualifiés de ce temps". Précieuse dédicace faisant référence à leur combat commun et surréaliste prémonition du titre du prochain grand roman antifasciste de Malraux.

        The Old Fashioned Way (Archive including corrected draft screenplay, final screenplay, and signed writer's agreement for the 1934 film)

      Los Angeles: Paramount, 1934. Archive for the 1934 film, including a Draft script with holograph corrections, the resulting mimeograph Final script, and signed "Certificate of Authorship," Certificate of Authorship notarized by the County of Los Angeles and signed by each of the film's writers, including J.P. McEvoy, Claude Binyon, Garnett Weston, Lex Neal, Walter DeLeon, Paul Jones, and Ralph Ceder. Based on the story by Charles Bogle (a W.C. Fields pseudonym), "The Old Fashioned Way" follows the story of The Great McGonigle (W.C. Fields) and his rag-tag vaudeville troupe's production of "The Drunkard," a William H. Smith temperance play, as well as the wayward romantic exploits of McGonigle's daugther, Betty. A rare and comedic glimpse into the life of a vaudevillian at the turn of the century, "The Old Fashioned Way" is also somewhat autobiographical in nature. Like McGonigle, Fields himself began his career in vaudeville as a silent juggler, eventually earning the distinction of "world's greatest juggler" and an illustrious career in both silent and early "talkie" films. Fields' "The Great McGonigle" is of course an homage to the famed "The Great Ziegfeld" or Florenz Ziegfeld, Jr., a noted impresario of his time and a key player in vaudeville history.

        Winged Victory

      London: Jonathan Cape,, 1934. Octavo. Original blue cloth, silver lettered spine and front cover, top edges blue. With the dust jacket. Very slight soiling to jacket, touch of foxing to fore-edge, 11cm slight cut across back of jacket somewhat affecting cloth beneath. Still a very nice copy in very good condition. First edition, first impression, an exemplary copy of what is widely regarded as one of the most realistic and moving accounts of aerial combat in World War I. "One of the best first-hand descriptions of a pilot's life at this time can be found in Winged Victory by Victor Yeates, who at that time was a lieutenant flying Sopwith Camel single-seater fighters with No. 46 Squadron from Le Hameau airfield just behind Arras. Yeates completed a seven-month spell of operational flying, which included the March Offensive, and made 163 operational flights totalling 248 hours. He crashed four times - twice shot down by German fire and twice accidentally. His book, nominally fiction, is recognised as being an authentic account of his time with No. 46 Squadron, and it vividly describes the strain of low-level flying over the battlefield and engaging German infantry with bombs and machine-guns during the course of the German spring offensive. Yeates died from tuberculosis, brought on by the strain of his wartime flying, in 1934, the year his book was first published" (Martin Middlebrook, The Kaiser's Battle, p. 281).

        Document signed, with photo signed, both by Hitler.

      Folio. Berlin: September 21, 1934. Folio, 11 1/2 x 8 1/4 inches, embossed with the Nazi eagle seal. With a photo of Hitler also signed, standing with three military officers (perhaps two being those in the document). The document is headed “In Namen des Reichs” and is signed at a turning point in Nazi history by the ruthless and virulently anti-Semitic war minister and Army Commander-in-chief Werner von Blomberg, whose career ended in scandal, and General Werner von Fritsch who was also linked to Blomberg in the so-called Blomberg-Fritsch Affair in which Göring slandered both men in order to end their careers which threatened his. The document grants permission to Generalleutnant Oskar von Beneckendorff und von Hindenburg, the politically powerful son and aide-de-camp to Field Marshal and President of Germany Paul von Hindenburg who appointed Hitler Chancellor, to assume the title and uniform of Generalmajor for three months from October 1st to December 31st 1934. In August 1934, Hindenburg had engineered the merging of the offices of President and Chancellor into one for Hitler. Although there is debate, Hindenburg may have been the person most instrumental in Hitler’s rise to power. This document unites four of the most famous Nazis in one moment in time. Provenance: Ken Rendell to a private collector in San Francisco.

Verlagsangabe "Gurlitt Verlag, Berlin 1934", die im Werkverzeichnis von Rainer Zimmermann nicht aufgeführt ist. Abweichend von den im Werkverzeichnis aufgeführten 19 Lithographien (inkl. Umschlag-Litogr. L 96) des Kinderbuches von 1933, liegt hier nur ein schlichter, nicht lithogr.

("Unser Jaule ist ein Kater", L 101 und "Jaulchen sag, was fehlt denn Dir", L 106). Vielleicht erhielt Gurlitt, in deren Galerie Franz Frank 1933 ausstellte, die restlichen lithographischen Blätter des Kinderbuches, die Frank noch nicht im privaten Umfeld verschenken oder verkaufen konnte, um sie 1934 über Gurlitt anzubieten. - Franz Frank (1897-1986) gilt als Maler der "verschollenen Generation" (siehe Zimmermann).
