        The Death Ship: The Story of an American Sailor

      London: Chatto & Windus, 1934. First English edition. Hardcover. Very good/good +. 311 pp. Octavo [21.5 cm]; full brick red cloth, gold stamping to spine, publisher's red topstain matches cloth. Clean and solid text. Text block leaning forward a bit, cloth lightly faded at spine. In the uncommon dust jacket, complete, but with some sunning, wear, and rubbing at spine and edges. The dust jacket folds are starting to split. First English language edition of this novel, preceding the first American edition by several months. Traven's most brilliant novel. A sardonic work about identity and a satire on faceless bureaucracy. The American sailor, Gales, has no papers; therefore, in the eyes of the authorities, he does not exist. In order to escape from Europe he is forced to sign aboard a "Death Ship" -- a dark comedy of errors ensues. The Death Ship/Das Totenschiff was originally written in English in 1923 or 1924. Traven translated it into German at the request of Buchergilde Gutenberg editor Ernst Preczang who was impressed by the serialization of Die Baumwollpflucker in Vorwarts. Das Totenschiff was then published in Berlin by Buchergilde Gutenberg in 1926. It was the first book to appear under the Traven name and its success established Traven's reputation. "The first English language edition, The Death Ship, was a translation from German by Eric Sutton published by Chatto & Windus in January 1934. Several months later an English language version by Traven was published by Knopf." Treverton 31.

        Typed Letter Signed

      Princeton: np. 1st Edition. No Binding. Very Good. AN IMPORTANT SIGNED LETTER (in English) by Einstein, revealing his reservations of associating with communism even in the fight against fascism. Written from Princeton, NJ, to Professor Albert Sprague Coolidge of Harvard University, and dated February 16, 1934, the letter reads: My dear Professor Coolidge: I had an opportunity of meeting personally Lord Marley and has [sic] very favorably impressed by his personality. It became known to me that he sympathizes with the Russian Government, i.g. with the Russian communist party and that the committee for which he is active is influenced by communists. The problem as to the attitude which is advisable to be taken towards this committee is rather complicated. On the one hand, the world-wide danger of fascism makes it necessary that all enemies of fascism cooperate; on the other hand, an action which has communist leanings might endanger that fight since the important task undertaken in defense of culture and civilization may be linked up with interests of a political party. I, myself have severed my connections with the committee, which, with my permission had used my name up to the end of last year. It seems to me advisable to take an attitude as follows: to help their action against fascism, but not to identify oneself with the committee. Very truly yours, [signed] A. Einstein P.S. I wish you would be good enough to use this strictly confidentially. In 1934, Lord (Baron) Marley (Dudley Leigh Aman), toured the United States to raise funds for his association, the World Committee for the Victims of German Fascism. Marley, through his committee, was "passionately advocating a scheme for which he was to become an international figurehead - resettlement of oppressed German and Polish Jews in the Jewish Autonomous Region" in Siberia. He published a book, "The Brown Book of the Hitler Terror and the Burning of the Reichstag, sponsored by the World Committee and with an Introduction written by Lord Marley himself, [which] was the first popular exposé of what was happening in Hitler's Germany. It documented the destruction of political parties, trade unions and universities, book-burning, and the building of concentration camps. "At a fundraising dinner held in his honour in New York in February 1934 [where Einstein presumably met him, just before writing this letter], Marley opened the Brown Book and 'speaking quietly, declaring that he did not intend to harrow', read aloud to his audience of 600 American Jews some of the collected evidence of Nazi repressions. Here were documentary records of what was happening in Germany - a substantiation of the brutality that hitherto had had no distinct form in the mind of the American Jewish public. What before had been the subject of a growing fear mingled with disbelief was now being presented as hard fact and supported with detailed evidence. The New York Times (8 February 2005) reports the audience being 'startled' by the disclosures, and the night ending with $3,500 raised for the World Committee" (The Jewish Quarterly, No. 198). Einstein was correct to be suspicious of Marley's activities, for it was later determined that the "World Committee" was indeed a Communist front; Einstein, writing here to Coolidge in 1934, was prescient about the motives of the committee. This letter, in addition to underscoring Einstein's passionate stance against fascism, is particularly important as documentary evidence of Einstein's caution about having any dealings with communism, especially considering that the U.S. FBI, worried about Einstein's political leanings, kept a file on Einstein that grew to 1427 pages. Princeton, NJ: February 16, 1934. One (8.5 x 11 in.) page. Envelope folds, minor spotting. An outstanding letter with important and revealing content.

RARE. First Edition. No. 84 of 500 copies. Illustrated with photographs, and a drawing by the author. 1 vols. 12mo. This is an almost unprocurable Derrydale Press title. The book appeared in two bindings: red paper boards with a printed white label, and in full leather with gilt medallion on upper cover. Both are rare, and, although the number in the deluxe leather binding is not known, it may be presumed to be rarer than those in boards. Indeed, aside from its intrinsic rarity (Siegel states that "upon Connett's death, a large carton of these were taken to the dump..."), it is the only presentation copy we have ever seen. The inscription (on the colophon) reads: "To The Spitteriges, With many remembrances from the author. Eugene S. Reynal.".

        Substantial collection of editor John Ferrone's photocopies of manuscripts and typescripts of The Diary of Anaïs Nin, including expurgated material

      Various places, 1934. Published as The Early Diary of Anaïs Nin, 1923-1927 (vols. 3 & 4), New York: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich [1983] and [1985]. Upwards of approximately 2,000 pages, some with publisher's ms. annotations and indications for deletion. 4to. Contained in 12 orange binders with paper labels on upper covers reading "Volume 19", through "Volume 30"; with separate manila folder captioned in pencil, "Unpublished Diary deletions" (approximately 200 pages) which are heavily marked by the publisher. Digital output typescript of In Search of Lost Joy. Overall, very good condition. Published as The Early Diary of Anaïs Nin, 1923-1927 (vols. 3 & 4), New York: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich [1983] and [1985]. Upwards of approximately 2,000 pages, some with publisher's ms. annotations and indications for deletion. 4to. The Suppressed Passages from Her Diary. The monumental task of publishing the Diary of Anais Nin - who began keeping a journal from the age of 11 until her death in 1977 - fell to the New York publisher Harcourt, Brace, Jovanovich. In 1966, HBJ began publishing the so-called "expurgated" editions, beginning with Volume I (1931-1934), which covered the critical period when Anaïs Nin was living just outside of Paris with her husband, banker Hugh Parker Guiler, during which time she began her relationship with Henry Miller and Miller' wife, June, underwent psychoanalysis, and began her study of D.H. Lawrence. Volume I was greatly expurgated, and the extent to which it was so may be seen in the manila folder herein, containing the "Unpublished Diary deletions" carefully preserved of John Ferrone, HBJ's editor. These deleted passages also contain autograph (not photocopied) corrections, presumably in Ferrone's hand - and as such constitute the earliest direct evidence of the publisher's intentions for this portion of Nin's diary. It wasn't until 1986 that HBJ published this portion of the unexpurgated diary as HENRY AND JUNE. The bulk of the other material, all to be found in the orange binders, consists of the Diary of the Early Years, also published in the 1980s by HBJ. A collection which tells an important part of the publication history of a landmark work in the history of women's literature.

        Murder on the Orient Express.

      - London: Collins for the Crime Club, 1934. Sm. 8vo, 254 (4, ads.)pp. Full burgundy hardgrain morocco, backstrip gilt, dark green labels, original orange cover and backstrip bound in. Very attractive modern binding. First edition of this famous classic featuring the immortal Hercule Poirot. It was one of ChristieÕs most successful books; the novel was adapted into a highly successful feature film, released in 1974 and starring Albert Finney alongside Sean Connery, Lauren Bacall, John Gielgud, Vanessa Redgrave, Ingrid Bergman and other big name stars. As Wikipedia notes: Dame Agatha Mary Clarissa Christie, DBE (nee Miller; 15 September 1890 Ð 12 January 1976) was an English crime novelist, short story writer, and playwright. She also wrote six romances under the name Mary Westmacott, but she is best known for the 66 detective novels and 14 short story collections she wrote under her own name, most of which revolve around the investigations of such characters as Hercule Poirot, Miss Jane Marple, Mr Satterthwaite, and Tommy and Tuppence. She also wrote the world's longest-running play, The Mousetrap.Born into a wealthy upper-middle-class family in Torquay, Devon, Christie served in a hospital during the First World War, before marrying and starting a family in London. She was initially unsuccessful at getting her work published; but in 1920 The Bodley Head press published her novel The Mysterious Affair at Styles, featuring the character of Poirot. This launched her literary career.The Guinness Book of World Records lists Christie as the best-selling novelist of all time. Her novels have sold roughly 2 billion copies, and her estate claims that her works come third in the rankings of the world's most-widely published books,[2] behind Shakespeare's works and the Bible. According to Index Translationum, Christie is the most-translated individual author Ð having been translated into at least 103 languages. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Japanese Carts

      1934. [JAPANESE CARTS]. UENO, Atsugui. Go shoguruma. [Royal Imperial Cars]. Suite of 12 plates of Imperial carts, each with leaf of descriptive text, printed in gold and colour, all within fan-shaped images. Oblong folio, 270 x 390 mm, bound accordion style in boards, orange glazed wrapper on upper cover bearing tassels and leaves. Kyoto, 1934. |~||~||~||~||~| A beautiful suite of decorative plates, superbly printed in gold and colour, illustrating Imperial Carts for use of the Royal Family. Each highly stylized image is fan-shaped; the leaves of descriptive text are embossed with vines, leaves and so forth. Although Atsugi Ueno is not listed in Laurence Roberts' Dictionary of Japanese Artists, he was clearly an artist of considerable abilities: each cart, or symbol of a cart (perhaps only a single-spoke wheel) is delicately placed among or behind a group of flowers or vines. This is the most elegant volume of Japanese Imperial Carts known to us; that this work contains designs for Japanese fans further enhances its appeal. "Various fan designs that are found today in the world originated in ancient Japan. It was not until modern times that they found their way to Europe through the Chinese continent. In Japan, fans were called 'suehiro,' or wide-bottom, and have long been a symbol of prosperity. Even today, fans are indispensable small items and treasured in ceremonies and festivals as well as in traditional Japanese dancing. Fans are made primarily of materials produced in Japan: bamboo, paper and silk. The size and shape of fans are varied, and this variety adds to the lives of the Japanese regardless of the season. Combining straight lines and curves, the unique spatial structure of the Japanese fans have been rediscovered artistically and internationally, and by the young" (The Fan of Japan Exhibition, Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi Trust Company, New York, 1996).
