      Aux Editions Jeanne Bucher, Paris 1934 - No. 387 of 812, on Navarre paper. (The second installment is numbered 121.) 11 by 9 inches, 28 by 22.5 cm. Surreal, sometimes amusing, other times creepy or frightening, always clever, fantastic and imaginative illustrations of anthropormophic lion(s) who is seductive, criminal, violent, sadistic. Some of the imagery is erotic as well, as the victims are often women in a state of dishabille. An unique artistic endeavor and a printed rarity in the Ernst oeuvre. The lightest of wear to the wraps. Other than a little light foxing of a few prelim leaves, clean and even pristine within. The original box survives, with some loss and somewhat rough.

        Cartonnage publicitaire pour la vente de "Service Public" par La Rocque, chef des Croix de Feu et Volontaires Nationaux

      Editions Bernard Grasset 1934 - Cartonnage fort, 320 x 490 mm, d’une affiche d’intérieur pour les vitrines de librairies, des éditions Bernard Grasset pour la sortie en 1934 de « Service Public », livre programmatique du colonel François de La Rocque, « chef des Croix de Feu et Volontaires nationaux », avec son portrait imprimé. Imprimerie Helpé. Document publicitaire rarissime. Le colonel François de La Rocque (1885-1946) a marqué de sa personnalité d’ancien combattant le mouvement politique des Croix-de-Feu fondé par Maurice d’Hartoy. Il en devient le président en 1932 jusqu’à sa dissolution en juin 1936. C’est un patriote et traditionnaliste, proche du catholicisme social. Son image se confond avec la doctrine des Croix-de-Feu. Le spécialiste des droites françaises René Rémond souligne l’indépendance financière et politique du mouvement, y voit un nationalisme volontairement modéré à partir de la présidence de La Rocque. Paru en novembre 1934, l’ouvrage « Service Public » annonce un programme de réforme institutionnelle et sociale (droit de regard de l’ouvrier sur la gestion de l’entreprise, salaire minimum, congés payés, vote des femmes, etc.) et un renforcement de la Défense nationale face au danger allemand que La Rocque ne cesse de pointer dans ses articles. En fait, les Croix-de-Feu affichent un réel républicanisme, au contraire des ligues d’extrême-droite ou fascisantes. La Rocque refuse les alliances avec l’Action française de Maurras, n’adhère pas au Front National des ligues en 1934, se montre hostile à l’antisémitisme et au nazisme et condamne même fermement l’antisémitisme affiché par les sections alsaciennes, mosellanes et algériennes de son parti. Rémond ne voit aucune idéologie fasciste soutenant le mouvement des Croix-de-Feu, contrairement à plusieurs historiens américains qui le considèrent comme l’exemple d’une mouvance fasciste française. Pour Pierre Milza, « La Rocque et ses amis chassent sur les terres du parti radical et s’efforcent, en affichant un anticommunisme de choc et un anticapitalisme moins timide qu’il ne l’avait été jusqu’alors dans le milieu Croix-de-Feu, d’attirer à lui les déçus du Front populaire. » [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Geográfica descripción de la parte Septentrional del polo ártico de la América y nueva iglesia de las indias occidentales y sitios astronómicos de esta provincia de predicadores de Antequera, Valle de Oaxac

      Mexico City: Archivo General de la Nacion, 1934. Description:2 volumes: 427 pages with facsimile title and index; 513 pages with two facsimile pages, appendix and index. Royal octavo (9 1/2" x 7") bound in three quarter blue leather with raised spine bands and gilt lettering to spine. From the library of George M Foster. Second edition.The two chronicles by Francisco de Burgoa easily hold first place for inflated style and bombastic phraseology, especially the opening remarks to various chapters. Yet for the important area of Oaxaca, and the numerous subjects he treats, Burgoa's works are indispensable and irreplaceable sources. Burgoa, born in Oaxaca, was related to numerous local colonial families. He took his final vows in 1625, and by 1649 was provincial of his Order. In that post he made a special effort to visit various parts of Oaxaca, especially seeking notices of Zapotecan antiquities, with the aim of writing a history of Oaxaca. Before his death in 1681he did not complete it but left two prolix yet valuable published treatises. The two chronicles are the usually abbreviated Palestra historial and Geográfica descripción. Burgoa conceived of them as a single work, but they differ in contents. The Palestra historial is a typical chronicle. It begins with the arrival in 1526 of Dominicans in Mexico City, and shortly thereafter their appearance in Oaxaca. Burgoa rehearses the lives of many missionaries already biographized by Davila Padilla, but Burgoa emphasizes their apostolate in the Oaxaca areas, even before formal establishment of the Province of San Hipolito (1592). These lives are uniformly eulogistic, but scattered through them are important bits of information on the numerous Indian groups of Oaxaca. The Geográfica descripción has 80 chapters. They detail the histories of the Monasteries and the work of their friars among the Indians, with much less attention to biographical detail than in the Palestra historial. The data run to about mid-17th century in both. (Handbook of Middle American Indians) George McClelland Foster, Jr born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on October 9, 1913, died on May 18, 2006, at his home in the hills above the campus of the University of California, Berkeley, where he served as a professor from 1953 to his retirement in 1979, when he became professor emeritus. His contributions to anthropological theory and practice still challenge us; in more than 300 publications, his writings encompass a wide diversity of topics, including acculturation, long-term fieldwork, peasant economies, pottery making, public health, social structure, symbolic systems, technological change, theories of illness and wellness, humoral medicine in Latin America, and worldview. The quantity, quality, and long-term value of his scholarly work led to his election to the National Academy of Sciences in 1976. Virtually all of his major publications have been reprinted and/or translated. Provenance from the executor of Foster's library laid in.Condition:Some occasional pencil marginalia by Foster. Foster's date of acquired on front paste down of volume one. Some rubbing to extremities else a very good set.

        THANK YOU, JEEVES

      Herbert Jenkins Ltd. [], 1934. Herbert Jenkins Ltd. [], 1934. First edition. Grey cloth lettered in red in a pictorial dustwrapper. A near fine copy in a very good dustwrapper, which shows a little fraying to the spine ends and a couple of closed tears with associated creasing. The first full length novel concerning Jeeves and Wooster, the previous books being a series of self contained stories (albeit often connected). It may be this change of genre or the fact it is one of two Jeeves books published in 1934 (Right Ho, Jeeves being the other), which lead the publishers to show caution with the first edition. Certainly it has been among the most infrequently encountered Jeeves titles we have seen. McIlvaine A51a

        Photographs by Man Ray 1920 Paris 1934

      Hartford: James Thrall Soby, (1934). Hartford: James Thrall Soby, (1934). Small stain evident on the upper tips of a few preliminary pages, faint crease to the cover by the top of the spiral; a beautiful, near fine copy in spiral-bound illustrated wrappers. While the second edition of this book turns up with some regularity, the true first edition is a legitimate rarity, especially in this condition.. First Edition, without the mention of a second edition (fictitious or not), no French title page on the verso of the English, and no mention on the title page of any of the contributors. It has become an accepted story in the world of rare books and auction houses that the so-called second edition was constructed only as a sales ploy. Regardless of the veracity of this claim, the true first edition differs enough bibliographically to render the reason irrelevant. Spiral-bound quarto. Text in French and English. Illustrated with 104 photographs printed in a lush gravure, divided into five sections, and comprising many of Man Ray's iconic images, with nineteen rayographs. (Roth 80-81).

        Authorized Map of the Second Byrd Antarctic Expedition

      General Mills Corporation, 1934. General Mills Corporation, 1934. Map. Lithograph with silkscreen color. Image measures 17" x 23". This charming and colorful map of Antarctica charts the second voyage of Admiral Richard E. Byrd. It was published by General Mills Corporation to promote a series of radio broadcasts designed to get the public engaged in Byrd's voyage. That the map was intended for a public audience, and particularly a younger one, is made clear by pictograms of penguins, whales, boats and planes that adorn the map. Even though this was the 4th journey to the Antarctic, much of the region remained unexplored, as a banner held by three penguins suggests. The exploration base of "Little America" is also labelled with a small banner. An inset in the lower right shows the Bay of Whales and a detail of Little America. In the upper left, another inset traces the paths of the two-way radio broadcasts. The elaborate cartouche includes a sled dog, two penguins, a compass rose, and a portrait of Admiral Byrd. The caption reads: "Past polar expeditions has been swallowed up by a silence which was never broken until they returned--if they did return. But on the Byrd Expedition there is being attempted the most notable feat in radio history--a two-way broadcast of the Expedition as it is being lived--from the very lips of the men themselves.

      London, Harrison, 1934-35.. (25,5 x 17,5 cm). VI, 942 S./ V S. 600, VI, XII S. Mit Abbildungen und Tafeln. Leinwandbände der Zeit.. Erste Ausgabe. - "Fermi bombarded several elements of increasing atomic numbers with neutrons. He hoped to find an artificial radioactivity produced by the neutrons. His first success was with fluorine..... Immediately thereafter Fermi, with the help of Amaldi, D'Agostino, Rasetti, and Segre, carried out a systematic investigation of the behavior of elements throughout the periodic table... In uranium and thorium the investigators found several forms of activity after bombardment but did not recognize fission. Fermi and his collaborators, having proved that no radioactive isotopes were formed between lead and uranium, put forward the natural hypothesis that the activity was due to transuranic elements. These studies... culminated in 1938 in the discovery of fission by Hahn and Fritz Strassmann" (DSB). Fermi erhält für die hier beschriebenen Entdeckungen 1938 den Nobelpreis für Physik. - Vorsätze und Titel gestempelt. Rücken verfärbt und teils gering eingerissen, sonst sauber und gut erhalten. - DSB 4, 576
