        Negro: Anthology made by Nancy Cunard: 1931-1933

      London: Nancy Cunard at Wishart & Co., 1934 - First Edition. Presentation copy; inscribed by Cunard on the verso of the front free endpaper, "To V.F. Calverton, whose own Negro Anthology is the ideal approach to Negro literature in America. Nancy Cunard." Publisher's cloth frayed at the extremities; stain at the top of the front endpapers and the first few leaves; a very good copy. A meaningful association: Calverton's Anthology of American Negro Literature was published in 1929. The radical Calverton (pseudonym of George Goetz), a Marxist critic and writer, was born into very modest circumstances in Baltimore. Cunard, raised in a considerably more prosperous and genteel environment, led a highly unconventional life as a political and social activist, as well as becoming a publisher and champion of avant-garde literature and art. This book was printed in an edition of 1000 copies, but apparently a large number of unsold copies were destroyed in the Blitz. Inscribed copies are very uncommon.

        Seven Gothic Tales. With an Introduction by Dorothy Canfield. Illustrations by Majeska.

      New York, Smith & Haas, 1934. Original full cloth with gilt title to spine and front board. In the original papercovered cardboard slipcase with printed title-label to front. A perfect copy, in mint condition. Beautifully illustrated with Majeska's magnificent and charming Art Deco-colourplates.. First illustrated edition, from the same year as the true first edition, of Blixen's first book, her proper debut and "the most astonishing and perhaps greatest literary work of art from between the wars". This literary masterpiece was originally published in America, where it also appeared in a illustretaed edition the same year, then in the UK later the same year, and in a re-written edition in Danish in 1935. The splendid illustrated edition appeared in a limited number of 1010 (999 for sale) copies, of which this number 264. The great American illustrator Majeska has put her infallible style to use in this magnificently illustrated edition of Blixen's masterpiece, and the outcome is an utterly charming book. Majeska was a very popular book illustrator in the 1930'ies, and two of the books for which she created the illustrations were chosen in 1930 by the Graphic Art Society as among the year's 50 books most distinguished for external charm. "And it is rumored", says a newspaper article from that same year, "that she is getting higher prices for her work than any other book illustrator in New York."The legendary Danish writer, Karen Blixen-Finecke (pseudonym: Isak Dinesen) (1885-1962), was a Danish baroness, who married her cousin, the Swedish Baron Bror Blixen-Finecke, in 1914. They soon moved to Africa, where they ran a coffee-farm near Nairobi, and the happiest years of Blixen's life were spent here (she used to say: "Africa made me"). She divorced her husband, who was cheating on her and gave her syphilis, in 1922, and in 1932 she moved back to Denmark after the farm had gone bankrupt and her lover, Denys Finch-Hatton, had died in a plane-crash. She spent the remaining 30 years of her life in Denmark, where she died a legendary writer. After she had returned to Denmark, she began preparing some of the stories she had been working on in Africa for publication. She used the pseudonym Isak Dinesen (the name Isak is derived from the Hebrew Itzhak, which means "he laughed", and Dinesen was her maiden name) so that the public would think she was a man - in order to be taken seriously as a writer. Although written under a male pseudonym, the book was still not met with instant appreciation. Karen Blixen then offered the tales to the editor Constant Huntington at Putnam's in England, but he turned them down; luckily, her brother was well connected and within two years, his acquaintance, the American writer Dorythy Canfield (who wrote the introduction for the first edition), succeeded in having the book of stories published by Robert Haas and Harrison Smith (later Random House) in America. Blixen's first book became a success, was elected Book-of-the-Month-Club, and was published by Putnam's later the same year. It established her reputation and laid the foundations for her further writings, financially as well as literally. She translated the tales into Danish and published them thus in 1935. "In the middle of the thirties the most astonishing and perhaps greatest literary work of art from between the wars landed in Denmark - via the USA: Isak Dinesen's "Sy Fantastiske Fortællinger" (1935), re-written in Danish by the author after the English-language original, "Seven Gothic Tales" (1934). [...] This book, as well as the ones to come, was received with excitement, astonishment and respect; but it was not until the war, and especially after the war, that the particular actuality of the writings was fully realized - and this was to become of literary importance" (Politiken's History of Danish Literature - own translation).Karen Blixen's first book, the collections of Gothic Tales, were quite unusual at the time. They take place about a hundred years before the time in which they were written and they tend towards the gloomy and the grotesque. They were meant to startle, but not fright, the reader, and they contain many magical and supernatural elements. In many ways the stories resemble those of "A Thousand and One Nights".Since her breakthrough with "Seven Gothic Tales", Blixen has been considered a writer of the greatest importance, and execized a great influence upon writers and cultural personas of the generations to come - many authors recognize her as a direct source of inspiration. Several of her novels have been filmatized, she was nominated for the Nobel Prize twice, she was elected honorary member of "The American Academy of Arts and Letters" (1957), and her portrait is printed on the Danish 50 kr. notes. She is the most famous of all modern Danish writers, and the only one of international fame

Octavo, original green pebbled cloth with numerous full-page plates by the author. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "Phyllis Bergen with my compliments- a poor atonement for ruined eyesight Roger T. Peterson." The recipient Phyllis Bergen is thanked by Peterson in the preface of this volume. This book was most likely presented upon publication as a thank you to the recipient. Fine in a very good dust jacket with a chip to the spine and front panel. Roger Tory Peterson, one of the world's greatest naturalists, received every major award for ornithology, natural science, and conservation as well as numerous honorary degrees, medals, and citations, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The Peterson Identification System has been called the greatest invention since binoculars. "Many people have noted that Peterson changed the world because he made nature accessible to the general public. Before his Guide, bird watching was the province of the few, often done with bird remains in hand" (Eirik A.T. Blom).

        The Smith Ely Jelliffe Collection of Medical Offprints (circa 1890-1934)

      [New York] 1934 - A large collection of medical offprints and monographs, including bound-in and laid-in correspondence and notes, assembled by the distinguished American physician, author, and editor Smith Ely Jelliffe. A practicing neurologist, psychiatrist, and psychoanalyst based in New York City, Jelliffe was a pioneer in the emerging field of psychosomatic medicine, and is best known today as the father of psychoanalysis in America. A prolific author and translator, he edited the influential *Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease* from 1902 to 1944, co-founded the nonorthodox *Psychoanalytic Review* in 1913, and co-founded and edited the *Nervous and Mental Disease Monograph Series*. He maintained a close personal and professional correspondence with both Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung after their historic break, and several other leading figures throughout the world in both Freudian and Jungian circles. Also a book collector, Jelliffe built up an important private library of books, journals, and offprints which he used for his research and the many translations of the serials that he owned and edited.The collection consists of 204 bound volumes containing well over 8,000 offprints and monographs of European and American works in neuroscience, psychiatry, and psychoanalysis, many of which are presentation copies inscribed to Jelliffe. Also included throughout the volumes are many folded large-format journal articles and shorter articles and clippings laid-down on bound-in sheets. The bulk of the papers date from the first quarter of the 20th Century (about 1905-1934). Among the presentation copies are several Inscribed by some of Jelliffe's best known colleagues, including Carl Jung, Melanie Klein, Heinz Hartmann, and Otto Rank; and several other leading international figures such as John H. Northrop (co-winner of the 1946 Nobel Prize in Chemistry), the Austrian neurologist Otto Marburg, American neurologist Bernard Sachs, and the American cultural anthropologist Alfred L. Kroeber. Also included are several papers with warm Inscriptions of gratitude from prominent Brazilian colleagues mentored by Jelliffe: Arthur Ramos (an important cultural historian of Brazil's Negro culture), Juliano Moreira and Durval Marcondes (founders of scientific psychiatry and psychoanalysis in Brazil). Other papers that are further illustrative of the diversity and scope of the collection include *Traum und Existenz* *nscribed by the distinguished Swiss psychiatrist and phenomenologist Ludwig Binswanger, and an Inscribed copy of Alfred Korzybski's influential treatise *Time-Binding*.Most of the papers are in German and English, followed by others in French, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, and several other languages. Among the German papers are many important papers on psychoanalysis, homosexuality, transvestitism, and transsexualism, including at least eight papers (one Inscribed) by the great German-Jewish psychiatrist Arthur Kronfeld (who studied under Magnus Hirschfeld at the Institute of Sexual Research in Berlin), and several early papers by Alfred Adler, Wilhelm Reich, Felix Boehm, and Carl Muller-Braunschweig. Also bound into a few selected volumes are original letters and copies of Jelliffe's accompanying correspondence. These include original letters from two important American physical chemists: Wilder D. Bancroft and Joseph E. Cohn (who was responsible for a blood fractionation project that saved thousands of lives in World War Two). All together the collection roughly divides into the principal subject areas of Jelliffe's professional career: Neurology and the Nervous System (over 50 volumes); Psychiatry and Neuropsychiatry (over 20 volumes); Psychoanalysis (26 volumes); Dementia, Paranoia, Psychoses, Schizophrenia (about 30 volumes); Endocrinology (about 20 volumes); etc., along with several related sub-disciplines. Nearly all have Jelliffe's typed or manuscript table of contents and author indexes laid-down onto the front and back endleaves, along with his [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        LA CUCINA ITALIANA. ?Mangiar meglio... Spender meno?. Giornale di gastronomia per famiglie e buongustai. Fondatrice Delia Notari.

      Tipografia Giornale d?Italia 1934 - 1942 In - 8 gr., 9 voll., mz. pelle mod., decoraz. e tit. oro al dorso, pp. 32 / 24 / 16, con ill. in b.n. o in tinta nel t. Di questa celebrata rivista mensile offriamo una raccolta pressoché completa di 9 annate, dal gennaio 1934 (Anno VI) al dicembre 1942 (Anno XIV). Tutta la raccolta è ben conservata (6 voll., purtroppo, portano incollata sulla prima pagina di ogni numero l'etichetta con l'indirizzo del destinatario, non sempre intatta). Nata nel 1929, la rivista ha cadenza mensile ma formato da quotidiano. Inizialmente, oltre a proporre ricette e consigli gastronomici, pubblica anche articoli firmati da donne scrittrici e ricette di poeti italiani, oltre a numerose rubriche. Nel 1934, col passaggio della direzione a Fanny Dini, la "La Cucina Italiana" si presenta come una moderna rivista per signore, cambia formato, le 8 pagine diventano 32, e si introducono le illustrazioni. Anche il contenuto muta: vengono ampliate le tematiche gastronomiche e introdotte nuove rubriche (dedicate alla bellezza, all'arredamento della casa, alle giovani dame della borghesia perchè diventino ?perfette massaie?); dal 1935 appare anche la rubrica sulla moda e vi è persino uno spazio per il galateo. Nell'ottobre 1937 la prima pagina del mensile si presenta come una copertina vera e propria e diventa a colori due anni dopo. "La Cucina Italiana" chiude per la guerra nel luglio 1943 ma rinascerà nel dopoguerra.

        And Quite Flows the Don [Signed]

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1934. First American edition. Hardcover. Very Good/very good. A Very Good copy of the SCARCE first American edition, first printing (some foxing to the gutters and spine edges, some toning to the board edges), in a Very Good example of the even scarcer dust jacket (some modest chipping to the spine ends and flap turn corners, a few short closed tears, minor soiling to the white rear spine panel, general modest edge wear), SIGNED BY MIKHAIL SHOLOKHOV on a small card affixed to the title page which signature he has dated "26xi65" with a small underscore. First published in Russian as "The Quiet Don", the work was issued in serial form from 1928 to 1940. While the portion of the novel (being only the first half of the book) was published in English translation in 1934 as "And Quite Flows the Don", the entire work was not published in English until 1940. This 1934 partial publication is itself quite uncommon, especially in the dust jacket. The novel tells the tale of the Cossacks living in the Don River Valley during the turbulent early Twentieth Century, a period which saw World War I, the Russian Revolution(s), the Russian Civil War, and the Bolsheviks' harsh repression of the Cossacks. Quite well received, the work became one of the most-read Russian novels of all time. In awarding him the 1965 Nobel Prize in Literature, the Swedish Academy, in support of its choice, spoke of "the artistic power and integrity with which, in his epic of the Don, Sholokhov has given expression to a historic phase in the life of the Russian people" and the Presentation Speech stated: "With magnificent realism the book portrays the unique character of the Cossack, the traditional mixture of cavalryman and farmer, with instincts that seem to conflict with one another but which nevertheless allow themselves to be welded together to form a firmly co-ordinated whole. There is no glamorization. The coarse and savage streaks in the Cossack temperament are displayed openly; nothing is hidden or glossed over, but, at the same time, one is aware of an undercurrent of respect for all that is human." The novel was three times adapted to film (1931, 1958, and 2006). In our experience, Sholokhov's signature is rather scarce and copies of this 1934 publication of the first portion of the novel complete with the dust jacket and in collectable condition are uncommon to the market. A Very Good copy of the first American publication of any portion of Mikhail Aleksandrovich Sholokhov's masterpiece for which he won the 1965 Noble Prize in Literature, SIGNED BY MIKHAIL SHOLOKHOV. QUITE SCARCE.

R A R E. A MAJOR FOLIO SIZE BOOK WITH CHINESE PHOTOGRAPHICS MAJOR PHOTOGRAPHIC RECORD OF PRE-1937 JAPANESE DESTRUCTION OF ANCIENT CHINA: This stunning work was done just two and a half years prior to Japanese systematic destruction of ancient China. . This is a major resource on all provinces of China, with a chapter on each, showing products, photographs of the sights and useful description of the art manufactures & art works, natural & historic beauty, many fold out statistical charts, a fabulous guide to the "real" China. By and large, the most comprehensive single photographic resource on the whole country ever done just before the Sino-Japanese war of 1937. . A SCARCE PHOTOGRAPHIC RECORD ! This is an important photographic record of China prior to the mass destruction of coastal & interior Chinese cities by the Japanese. A substantial part of ancient China was permanently damaged and destroyed from 1937-1945. In that regard, we believe this is an important and historic photographic record of what old China looked like. *** THE CONTENTS: Per the foreword as written by the publishers: "We seek to present in the following pages a valuable collection of materials illustrative of the widely divergent aspects of Chinese life and manners and conducive to a sound understanding of the Middle Kingdom." . This book is arranged by province order, some 20 in all. In addition, a separate matching chapter on Manchuria, Sinkiang, Jehol, Chahar, Suiyan, Sikiang, Tibet & Mongolia is at the end. . Each chapter begins with a color photo of a famous place, followed by full description of the area, its mountains, rivers and physical features, main cities, capital, important buildings, famous and scenic spots, gardens, pagodas, temples, and lavishly illustrated with many b.w. photographs. *** THE PHOTOGRAPHER: YUAN-HENG CHANG, PHOTOGRAPHS ARE IN THIS WORK: . Beautifully photographed in b.w. by the eminent Chinese veteran photographer Mr. Yuan-Heng Chang. He was also associated in Shanghai with Liang Yu Publishing Co., as an editor. During his sojourn he traveled extensively throughout China contributing his photographs to this work as well as CHINA TODAY, CHINA'S SCENIC BEAUTY, CHINA'S SCULPTURAL BEAUTY and CHINA'S ARCHITECTURAL BEAUTY. Later he became the publisher and editor-in-chief of Liang Yu Hua Pao [Young Companion]. In 1948 Chang moved to Hong Kong. . Other photographs by T.S. Leung, P. Auyoung & W. Szeto. *** FOLDING APPENDICES: This work contains 10 folding charts [maps] at the rear of the text. Such things as population count; count of foreign population; list of roads, railroads, trams, freight cars, trucks, buses, bicycles, cars and other modes of transportation, road mileage; list of rivers, distance; telegraph service to each province; educational statistics, number and location of schools; list of natural products, production, agricultural products by city and type of product; comparison of China's product production vs. foreign production. Excellent statistical study, with current numbers. *** QUAINT ADVERTS: There are a number of period "quaint" advertisements at the rear several with both English & Chinese texts. The adverts promote Chinese-American publications, photo engraving [with English & Chinese], Sincere Company, with its 47 branches, New Asia Hotel, dental cream, cigarettes, steamship company, jewelers, wall paper, furnishings, and many others. Some with lovely photographs. *** SIZE: This book is a large folio, 22 x 33 cm., and ca. 5.5 cm. thick. *** LARGE AND HEAVY ITEM: This a large and heavy item, therefore extra and appropriate packing & shipping costs will apply. *** Color scans can be sent by email.

        Tender Is The Night.

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1934 - First edition. Octavo, original green cloth. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper with a full page inscription, For Harry Joe Brown - late of the 17th Infantry Brigade. Wounded in Hollywood 1920-1940. - from his fellow dough boy F Scott Fitzgerald Encino, 1939." The recipient Harry Joe Brown was a Hollywood producer, who Fitzgerald noted meeting in late 1939: "Somewhere around this time [September 1939] Harry Joe Brown called me over to Twentieth Century Fox on a Sonja Heine picture" (letter to the Berg-Allenberg Agency, 23 February 1940). Fitzgerald had been contracted as a writer by Metro Goldwyn Meyer Studios in the July of 1937, initially for six months. His contract was then extended for another year, but when this lapsed in December 1938 MGM did not renew it. Over the next two years, Fitzgerald freelanced for numerous studios on a number of films, including Everything Happens at Night for which Brown was an associate producer. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An excellent near fine example in a very good first issue dust jacket with some fading and chips to the spine. F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote in a friend's copy of Tender Is the Night, "If you liked The Great Gatsby, for God's sake read this. Gatsby was a tour de force but this is a confession of faith." Set in the South of France in the decade after World War I, Tender Is the Night is the story of a brilliant and magnetic psychiatrist named Dick Diver; the bewitching, wealthy, and dangerously unstable mental patient, Nicole, who becomes his wife; and the beautiful, harrowing ten-year pas de deux they act out along the border between sanity and madness. Tender Is the Night is also the most intensely, even painfully, autobiographical of Fitzgerald's novels; it smolders with a dark, bitter vitality because it is so utterly true. This account of a caring man who disintegrates under the twin strains of his wife's derangement and a lifestyle that gnaws away at his sense of moral values offers an authorial cri de coeur, while Dick Diver's downward spiral into alcoholic dissolution is an eerie portent of Fitzgerald's own fate. F. Scott Fitzgerald literally put his soul into Tender Is the Night, and the novel's lack of commercial success upon its initial publication in 1934 shattered him. He would die six years later without having published another novel, and without knowing that Tender Is the Night would come to be seen as perhaps his masterpiece. In Mabel Dodge Luhan's words, it raised him to the heights of "a modern Orpheus." Named by Modern Library as one of the 100 greatest novels of the twentieth century.

        The Challenge to Liberty.

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons,, 1934. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine and front board gilt. With the dust jacket. Occasional underlining in pencil. Spine a touch faded and rolled, extremities gently scuffed, a few pale markings to the front board. A very good copy in the spine-toned dust jacket with a small tear to the loss of one letter on rear panel. First edition, first printing. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper "To Philip D Carroll, with the kind regards of Herbert Hoover". Hoover made a name for himself in the early years of the First World War by organising aid shipments to mainland Europe, working from an office in London; when the US entered the conflict in 1917 Woodrow Wilson appointed him to run the United States Food Administration, which post-war became the American Relief Administration. Veteran aid worker Carroll was appointed to lead the ARA mission to Russia in 1921. "In his own words, Herbert Hoover viewed the ARA relief efforts as 'an opportunity to point out to the Russian people themselves that their economic system is hopeless.' However, to altogether attribute perhaps the greatest famine relief operation in the history of mankind to ulterior motives would be unfair to the man who on his own initative ultimately saved ten million Russian lives" (Asgarov, Reporting from the Frontlines of the First Cold War, pp. 135-38).
