Album is very good or better with toning on the page edges and a few photos have been removed with near fine or better photographs.An album of photographs from Nazareth House, an orphanage in Plymouth in the United Kingdom in 1935. The photos appear to be taken as a form of promotion displaying the rooms of the orphanage as well as the girls who lived there. Throughout the album are staged photographs of tables set for breakfast, rows of perfectly made beds, the chapel, and a large classroom. Towards the end of the album the girls are featured in class and playing outside. One photo shows a group of little girls dressed as fairies and another shows some of the girls with a nun chaperone looking out in to the water that surrounded the grounds. A group photo shows all the girls who were housed at the orphanage in 1934.Nazareth House, founded in the 1870s, was operated by the Sisters of Nazareth, sometimes referred to as the Poor Sisters of Nazareth. They had orphanages throughout England, all of which were called Nazareth House, and were home to not only abandoned girls but also those thought to be uncontrollable or accused of petty crimes. The girls were taught basic lessons including arithmetic, reading, and writing, as well as the "feminine arts" of sewing and knitting. In the late 1990s the sisters were accused of child abuse and of sending 111 children to Australia to "spread Catholicism."A collection of large, arresting photographs of a girl's orphanage in the 1930s.

        Charles W A Scott & Tom Campbell Black SIGNED PHOTOGRAPH aboard the liner RMS Orford (Dec 1934) returning to the UK after their record-breaking flight to Australia

      n/a, 1934. Ephemera. Used; Good. Ephemera; English language; Signed; 32mo - over 4" - 5" tall; good condition; extremely unusual, possibly unique (at least for purchase) piece of aviation history - a 104 mm x 79 mm photograph showing the two pilots (Scott is on the left) returning by liner to the UK from Australia after their victory in the London to Melbourne Centenary Air Race and SIGNED BY BOTH MEN; inscription on reverse of photo reads 'On board R.M.S Orford Dec 1934' and may possibly be in Scott's hand but this cannot be verified; the photograph was found in the autobiography of Master Mariner J F Ruthven of the Orient Line (which owned the Orford) which suggests the photo may have been taken (and the signatures procured) by a member of the Orford's crew; the two pilots won what was officially known as the MacRobertson Trophy Air Race in 71 hours, 20th-23rd October 1934, which feat included them achieving the then fastest ever flight from Britain to Australia (52 hours 33 minutes, which knocked over 100 hours off the previous record and which still stands for piston-powered aircraft); the race is widely considered the most important air race of them all and generated global coverage at the time; Scott & Black flew a De Havilland DH 88 Comet, which aircraft heavily influenced the design of the wartime Mosquito.

        The Poems of Charlotte Bronte and Patrick Branwell Bronte [Large Paper Copy 1/500]

      Shakespeare Head Press, Oxford 1934 - Octavo, Gilt lettered and decorated spine. Some browning of the pages. Leather spine label has light scuffs. This is one of just 500 copies of the Large Paper Edition of this book. It is very scarce and not seen as often as the other editions of this title. Branwell is regarded as the black sheep of the family. He was a drunkard and opium addict whose artistic and literary talents were never realized. Although he was extremely prolific from the time of his young manhood, producing scores of pieces of prose narrative and poetry, he was published only a handful of times in local newspapers during his lifetime and is hardly considered in light of his own literary endeavors. Instead, he is more often described in terms of his influence on the remaining Brontës. According to several scholars, Branwell's presence in the household contributed to a certain "peculiarity" in his sisters' writings. His shocking and decadent lifestyle provided fodder for the coarseness of a novel like Charlotte's Jane Eyre, the wildness of Emily's highly imaginative Wuthering Heights, and the degradation and ruin detailed in Anne's The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. Though in total Branwell's writings outnumber the entire literary output of his sisters, reviewers have generally dismissed his work with scorn. A small number of modern Brontë critics blame this reaction on the fact that only fragments of Branwell's work are in print and believe that a full and accurate assessment can occur only when all of his scattered writings have been made accessible to readers.

        A Cool Million [West's Sister's Copy]

      NY: Covici Friede. (1934). The third book by the author of Miss Lonelyhearts and the classic Hollywood novel The Day of the Locust. This is West's sister's copy, with her ownership signature, "Laura Weinstein," on the front flyleaf. West dedicated this copy to his college friend, the comic writer S.J. Perelman, who married Laura in 1929; she was Perelman's co-writer on several screenplays, including Around the World in Eighty Days and two Marx Brothers films, among others; she would later be the dedicatee of West's The Day of the Locust. Nathanael West was born "Nathan Weinstein." Although his sister, Lorraine Weinstein, would later change her name to Laura West and then to Laura Perelman, this book and other of her brother's books that came out of S.J. Perelman's library (and are now in the Special Collections of Brown University) were signed as "Laura Weinstein." Modest foxing to boards, endpages and page edges; a very good copy in a very good dust jacket with a bit of sunning on and near the spine and a few very small edge chips. A much nicer than usual copy of this novel and a unique family association copy as well as being owned by the wife of the dedicatee; one of the best copies imaginable. In a custom clamshell case.

Josselyn, You will see that it's Liddell Hart's fault if ["that" struck out] all this mess of scribbling around his text affronts your eye. He asked for it, and for it to be sent to you. Soit - T.E.S." Liddell Hart submitted the typescript, and/or proofs of the book to Lawrence for his critique, which was duly forthcoming (see King's College, LHMA, Liddell 9/13). B.H. Liddell Hart was one of the most influential military thinkers of the twentieth century, and considered that his friend Lawrence "was more deeply steeped in knowledge of war than any other general of the First World War"; a judgement that has been seen as hyperbolic by many in the intervening 80 years, but which in view of current thinking on the increasing prevalence of asymmetric warfare, and counterinsurgency operations seems remarkably prescient.

        Typed letter signed in full to the noted American band composer and leader Edwin Franko Goldman

      - Text in English.1/2 page, single-spaced. Large octavo, 266 x 184 mm. Dated Brookline, Massachusetts, January 31, 1934. With Schoenberg's name and address handstamped at upper left corner. In English.Schoenberg comments about a commissioned translation, by Goldman, of a text he had originally written in German. He is not quite satisfied with Goldman's work and requests a new translation:"Dear Mr. Goldman, you find enclosed the translation you have send [!] me with your letter of January 29th. There you find also some marginal notes where I have signed some of the parts of the translation, by which I cannot be satisfied.I understand your intention in translating my words and I can well appreciate it. Surely it would be of a great advantage if all I have written could be said in such a manner that everybody can conceive it. But surely also: The thought would loose [!] so much of its dep[th] and of its prospect, that I am forced to renounce another succes[s] of my word, than an [in?]adequate-one."Manuscript annotation to upper right corner in an unknown hand (?Goldman's): "Ans." [?Answer].Slightly browned and stained; creased at folds; with minor remnants of archival mounting tape to blank verso. Edwin Franko Goldman (1878-1956) was a band composer and bandleader living in New York. The letter inadvertently testifies to the newly-immigrated Schoenberg's struggle with the English language, but also to Schoenberg's uncompromising nature. In the end, Goldman decided to publish Schoenberg's article in German. See Schoenberg's letter to Goldman, February 3, 1934, published in Arnold Schoenberg: Sämtliche Werke Section IV: Orchestral Works. Series B, Volume 13 edited by Rudolf Stephan (Mainz: B. Schott's Söhne; Vienna: Universal Edition, 1993), p. xxiii. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        A Cool Million [West's Sister's Copy]

      NY: Covici Friede. (1934). The third book by the author of Miss Lonelyhearts and the classic Hollywood novel The Day of the Locust. This is West's sister's copy, with her ownership signature, "Laura Weinstein," on the front flyleaf. West dedicated this copy to his college friend, the comic writer S.J. Perelman, who married Laura in 1929; she was Perelman's co-writer on several screenplays, including Around the World in Eighty Days and two Marx Brothers films, among others; she would later be the dedicatee of West's The Day of the Locust. Nathanael West was born "Nathan Weinstein." Although his sister, Lorraine Weinstein, would later change her name to Laura West and then to Laura Perelman, this book and other of her brother's books that came out of S.J. Perelman's library (and are now in the Special Collections of Brown University) were signed as "Laura Weinstein." Modest foxing to boards, endpages and page edges; a very good copy in a very good dust jacket with a bit of sunning on and near the spine and a few very small edge chips. A much nicer than usual copy of this novel and a unique family association copy as well as being owned by the wife of the dedicatee; one of the best copies imaginable. In a custom clamshell case. First Edition. Hardcover.
