Leaflet printed on one side, 5.25x8.25 inches, mimeographed, two horizontal fold creases), paper beginning to brown, good condition. This leaflet, issued in white hot anger - with typos - was issued to mobilize the mass funeral march after the Bloody Thursday July 5 shooting of two men active in the historic San Francisco waterfront strike of 1934. It was produced sometime between Thursday, July 5 (Bloody Thursday), when CP and Cooks and Waiters Union Local 44 member George Coundeourakis [Nick Bordois] and longshore union member Howard Sperry were gunned down by police at Mission and Spear streets and Sunday, July 8, 1934, when the two lay in state at the Longshore Hall near the shooting site. The flyer calls for a mass meeting followed by a "mass funeral march" on Monday, July 9, beginning at the Longshore Hall. These murders and following funeral procession initiated the San Francisco General Strike.

        I, Claudius : from the autobiography of Tiberius Claudius, born B.C. 10, murdered and deified A.D. 54; [with] Claudius the God and His Wife Messalina

      Harrison Smith and Robert Haas [through 1935] MCMXXXIV [1934], New York - First American Editions (no additional printings noted) in First State bindings. Tall, thick 8vo's: 494, with with title page vignette and folding genealogical table of Tree of the Imperial Family and Connexions; 583,[1], with title page vignette and two folding genealogical tables, of the Royal Family of the Herods and of the Tree of the Imperial Family. Publisher's navy blue cloth, spines stamped in gilt, medallions stamped in blind (I, Claudius) and gilt (Claudius the God) on upper covers; pictorial dust jackets, I, Claudius priced $3.00 with "recommended by the Book-of-the-Month Club" decal on upper cover, Claudius the God unpriced and unclipped. (Speculation abounds as to whether this is actually the book-club issue, but aside from the unpriced jacket it is otherwise identical to the first trade edition. What's more, the jacket's back panel contains a list of 40 Smith and Hass titles, all priced, highly unusual for any book-club edition.) An uncommonly bright set, about Fine (evidence of neat, partial book plate removal from upper paste down of Claudius the God), in better than Near Fine jackets without tears or chips but spine panels faded (as inevitably). Higginson A42b and A43b. Graves's fictional autobiography of the Roman Emperor Claudius, using psychological realism in a story of political intrigue in first century Rome. Claudius the God and His Wife Messalina soon followed, and the publication of these books brought Graves international recognition and some financial stability. "Before Graves, this literary form was seldom other than a romance, contemporary to whatever age in which it was written and covered over with a thin veneer reminiscent of exotic climates and distant times and places. Graves, however, uses the form of the historical novel not to disguise the present but to explore and bring to light the past. . . . It is a measure of Graves’s talent and skill that he can make his evocation of the past seem real and vivid, even to those with a solid grounding in the history of the early Roman Empire."

        Mein Weltbild.

      Amsterdam: Querido, 1934 - Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine and upper board gilt. With the dust jacket. Housed in a black cloth folding case. Ownership signature to front free endpaper. Light partial tanning to free endpapers. An excellent, sharp copy in the jacket which is rubbed and creased with toned spine panel, chips, closed tears, and a faint spot of dampstain to the upper panel. First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author on the title page, "Gesammelte Länder [Collected Countries], Albert Einstein" under the printed title which has been struck through. Einstein's inscription seems to refer to the German title, which means approximately "My World View". This volume is rare signed and contains 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. [Attributes: First Edition]

        [Original Photographic Portrait Study for:] MAN OF ARAN

      [Np: The Photographer, ca. 1934].. [Np: The Photographer, ca. 1934].. Original platinum print portrait photograph (48 x 37.5 cm; 19 x 15"). Mounted on oversize heavy linen mat paper (mat has tears and losses at edges, with pinholes at corners from display). Minor oxidation at extreme edges of print and a few faint flecks to emulsion finish, 2 cm closed tear in right edge of print (in and expanse of white, without loss), a bit curled, but otherwise image very good. A superb character study portrait photograph by Frances Flaherty, produced in the context of her work with her husband, Robert J. Flaherty, on the landmark creative documentary film, THE MAN OF ARAN, signed in pencil by her on the mount to the immediate lower right of the image. The verso of the mount bears the stamp: '"Man of Aran" [/] A Gainsborough Picture [/] Directed by Robert J. Flaherty [/] Copyright Photo." The portrait is an interior shot of one of the elder women in the cast, from mid-torso up, eyes cast top left, with an expression of anguish. The collaborative work of Frances and Robert Flaherty on this project, as well as subsequent projects, such as THE LAND and LOUISIANA STORY, has been the topic of considerable scholarly research, particularly in regard to their seminal influence on the film documentary. MAN OF ARAN is regarded as one of their triumphs, with Aran Island residents cast in semi-fictionalized roles, and while often engaged in anachronistic practices, depicting vividly their harsh lives and traditions. It is not uncommon for photographs by Frances to be misattributed to Robert -- he was an active still photographer on the four Mackenzie expeditions to the Canadian sub-Arctic (1910-1916), but as he became more involved in the directing of motion pictures, specifically NANOOK OF THE NORTH (1922), the role of still photographer passed more and more to Frances - they were married in 1914 - his collaborator on many levels, including screenwriter. Vintage prints of her photographs are rather uncommon.

        Isaac Roosevelt (1726-1794) Soldier, Statesman, Citizen of New York: A short genealogical record of the Roosevelts from 1649 to 1934 and notes in reference to John Bailey sword maker to the Officers of the American Revolution

      New York: Privately Printed, 1934. New York: Privately Printed, 1934. Hardcover Hardcover. Near Fine. [3], 7, [7] pages on hand-made paper; 2 mounted photographs, the first of a painted portrait of Isaac Roosevelt and the second of the sword. Folio-sized, 10-1/4 by 14 inches. A rather odd book, presenting a survey of Franklin Roosevelt's male ancestors, with an emphasis on the Revolutionary War-era politician Isaac Roosevelt. The final page is devoted to John Bailey, who made a sword for Isaac. It appears that the House of Peters, at one time a fine clothier, had turned to selling artificts in the 1930s, issuing elaborate books to document collections they presumably had for sale. In this case, your humble cataloguer believes they had in their possession a sword once owned by Isaac Roosevelt, and seeing that his great-great grandson was in the White House, sought to capitalize on this fact. It is, in any case, an uncommon book, published in an edition of just 12 copies. Two copies located on OCLC, one at the American Antiquarian Society and the second at the Harry Ransom Center. Bound in yellow half morocco over blue cloth. Spine tanned, with a bit of spotting to the leather, else a near fine copy in a very good slipcase. Bookmark ribbon detached but laid in. Copy 3 of 12, numbered, signed Fred Peters and dated on a sheet of House of Peters letterhead, tipped to the first leaf.
