        Dessins et peintures d'Asie. Exécutés au cours de l'Expedition Citroen Centre-Asie. Troisième mission G.-M. Haarrdt - L. Audouin-Dubreuil.

      Jules Meynel Paris 1934 - Folio (39 x 29 cm). Suite of 50 colour plates with "Croquis de route et notes de voyages" as a separate volume. Original card folder; some light soiling and spotting. Number 33 from the limited edition of 500 copies. Finely produced portfolio of illustrations by the official artist of the Citroen Central Asia Expedition, capturing the peoples and landscapes of Persia, Turkistan, Afghanistan and Mongolia. The third Citroen mission, The Yellow Cruise, took place between April 1931 and February 1932. This motorised expedition followed Citroen's previous successful mission across the Sahara and The Black Cruise in Central Africa. This time the route went across Asia from Beirut to Beijing, amounting to 13,000 km. It was the first time anyone had driven a car in the Himalayas and the convoy also set the world altitude record for cars - 4208m - in the process. Yakovlev produced a captivating record of the peoples he saw on the route, including Persians, Mongolians, Kyrghyzs and Afghans. By the artist's own admission, it was the interesting characters in traditional attire that he most enjoyed drawing, especially those with distinctive head-dresses. Yakovlev was particularly fascinated with the Baghdadi Kurds, a people whose proud and dignified air Yakovlev found very attractive: 'If I hadn't known that the Baghdadi Kurds who came to pose for me were just porters handling supplies for the expedition,' Yakovlev wrote, 'I could easily have mistaken them for descendants of the princes of One Thousand and One Nights' (A.Yakovlev, Putevye zapiski o puteshestvii po Azii v ekspeditsii avtomobil'nogo obshchestva 'Sitroen', 25 April 1931). Yakovlev was born in St Petersburg in 1887. He showed a prodigious talent as a draftsman and artist from a young age. He studied at the Imperial Academy of Arts and was awarded the status of Artist under the Tsarist regime in 1913, followed by a scholarship to study abroad. It was the start of a lifetime of travels. He and a fellow artist headed for Italy, then Spain. Their modernist-influenced exhibitions back in St Petersburg were met with mixed reactions. Nevertheless, Yakovlev won another scholarship, from 1917-1919, to the Far East, and travelled to Mongolia, China and Japan. He returned to Paris and took French citizenship. By the time of La Croisiere Noire in 1924 Yakovlev had become an expert at painting on the spot in difficult conditions. He returned to Paris with his work and proceeded to produce prints and limited edition publications as well as a celebrated exhibition. Yakovlev was presented with a Legion of Honour by the French Government in 1926.

Die eng beschriebenen und schwer leserlichen Postkarten von Theodor Heuss sind auf den 19.10. und 1.11.34 datiert, die von Elly Heuss-Knapp auf den 12. Nov. 1934, sie bezieht sich auf einen Brief von Hartmann. Offensichtlich aus Platzgründen ist die Karte mit \"E. H-K.\" unterzeichnet. Die Karte von Theodor Heuss vom 19.10. ist unterzeichnet: \"Ihr Theodor Heuss\", die Karte vom 1.11. ist nicht signiert, aber zweifelsfrei in der gleichen Handschrift. Als Absenderadresse hat Theodor Heuss Berlin-Lichterfelde, Kamillenstr. 9 (19.10.) bzw. Kamillenstr. 3 (1.11.). Die im Internet gefundene Kamillenstraße 6 könnte man als die demokratische Mitte betrachten.

        Mein Weltbild.

      Amsterdam: Querido,, 1934. Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine and front board in gilt. Gilt entirely gone from spine, two faint watermarks to front cover, front inner hinge cracked but holding, a few light pencil underlines, otherwise clean and fresh, a good copy. First edition, inscribed by Albert Einstein as "A. Einstein" in 1934, with two verses of his composition, likely to his son-in-law Rudolf Kayser ("Rudi"), with the felicitation "Des lieben Freundin zum Gruss" ("Greetings to my dear friend"). Einstein occasionally inscribed Mein Weltbild in verse; the copy inscribed to his mentor Max Talmey had a shorter though related two-line rhyming inscription. The inscription in this copy is six lines of verse, plus felicitation, beginning: "Was der Fëder that entfahren / That der Rudi aufbewharen / Was mir selber längst entschwunden / Wird de Leser aufgebunden …" ("What the pen let slip, Rudi saved…") Mein Weltbid ("My World View") comprises five essays by Einstein on science, religion, politics, and philosophy: "The World As I See It", "Of Politics and Pacifism", "Germany 1933", "Judaism", and "Science". Since his childhood in Prussia Einstein had been opposed to militant nationalism and enforced conformity, even renouncing his German citizenship for that of Switzerland as a teenager. As he grew in stature as a physicist he began using his celebrity to promote his philosophical ideals – internationalism, pacifism, and Zionism – earning him much vitriol from the far-right but endearing him to millions of others around the world. This edition is entirely in German; the first English language edition was published in the US in 1949.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1934 - 1934 Original Hardback Wisden, Ex library

      1934. Hi, We recently purchased the Wisdens from the Bolton Library and were pleasently surprised by their condition, they are Ex-Library and have stamps etc to them but they are priced very low so a great way to buy a cheap hardback that may be better than you think. This lot is a 1934 Original Hardback Wisden in Good+ Condition, This Wisden is a very good book for an ex library, 1933-37 are never great but the gilts are better than most on this book. The boards are a touch dark but the hinges are good. Photoplate is excellent. The library factor are : Circle to the spine cloth, stamp to pastedown and a couple of pages and a white square fixed to the last page. Not too bad. Nicely priced.

        Tender is the Night

      New York: Scribner’s 1934 - Original pictorial wrappers made by the publisher from the dust jacket. Some restoration to rear wrapper affecting the right margin of the jacket copy, marginal stain to p. 27, light spotting to endpapers, else very good. FIRST EDITION, the extremely rare advance issue in wrappers. Fitzgerald considered Tender is the Night, his fourth and final novel, to be his masterpiece, surpassing The Great Gatsby. Following an initially lukewarm reception, the novel’s reputation has steadily risen. Ernest Hemingway later observed that “Tender is the Night gets better and better.” The novel is now acclaimed as one of the great works of modern American literature. The author’s first novel in nine years, following The Great Gatsby, Tender is the Night tells the story of the rise and fall of a glamorous couple, the psychiatrist Dick Diver and his wife Nicole, who is one of his patients. At the time Joyce’s wife Zelda was hospitalized for schizophrenia. The advance issue of Tender is the Night is one of the great Fitzgerald rarities Of Fitzgerald’s eight novels, this is the only one for which advance copies were issued. “They are complete texts – not dummies – and were probably intended for use as review copies and salesman’s copies. The Scribner’s records indicate that five hundred copies were ordered, but it is unlikely that that many copies were distributed because it is so rare: three institutional copies have been located [Virginia, Pierpont Morgan, and the Bruccoli Collection at the University of South Carolina] . These are the most collectible copies of Tender is the Night in terms of priority and rarity” (Bruccoli and Baughman, F. Scott Fitzgerald in the Marketplace). The book has been the subject of stage, screen, theater, television, and ballet adaptations. Very rare: leading Fitzgerald bibliographer and collector Matthew Bruccoli located only three copies. Only two examples appear in the auction records of the past fifty years. Provenance: Henry Barnard Strong, with bookplate. Strong was member of the Yale class of 1922 and a member of Skull & Bones. Gerald Murphy, the model for Dick Diver in Tender is the Night, was likewise a Skull & Bones man. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
