        AMERICAN DIPLOMACY DURING THE WORLD WAR Inscribed by Edward M. House to Sara Delano Roosevelt

      Baltimore: The Johns Hopkins Press, 1934. First Edition. cloth. Very Good, lacking the dustwrapper. A comprehensive diplomatic history of the United States from 1914 to 1918. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the dedicatee of the book, Edward Mandell House, on the front endpaper: "To/Sara Delano Roosevelt:/foremost mother of our Republic,/with my admiration and affection./E. M. House/1934." Above this the book is INSCRIBED and INITIALED by Roosevelt: "for my grandson Elliott/from SDR--." Sara Delano Roosevelt, the dominant mother of only son Franklin Delano Roosevelt, died exactly three months before the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Elliott, the fourth child of Franklin and Eleanor, played a key role in the D-Day invasion. "Colonel" House, to whom Karl Rove has been compared, was Woodrow Wilson's chief adviser. Wilson referred to House as "my alter ego" (my other self), and it is not inaccurate to say that House, not Wilson, was the most powerful individual in our country during the Wilson Administration. House played a major role not only in the United States entering World War I but also in shaping wartime diplomacy. Wilson put him in charge of preparing the constitution for the League of Nations and of working out an armistice with the Allies. In 1932 he supported Franklin D. Roosevelt without joining his inner circle. House also authored the novel PHILIP DRU: ADMINISTRATOR (1919) whose title character becomes a sinister dictator of America. In 1921, House founded the still influential Council on Foreign Relations.

        Weizmann writes to Jewish National Fund founder Johann Kremenezky in Vienna

      Typed Letter Signed ìCh. Weizmannî in English, 1p, 8î x 10î. London, June 29, 1934. To Dr. Johann Kremenezky, Vienna. On Hebrew/English letterhead of ìThe Jewish Agency for Palestine / Central Bureau for the Settlement of German Jews / Chairman: Dr. Ch. Weizmann.î Light toning at mid-vertical fold. Fine condition. In full, ìEver so many thanks for your most kind note. I was much distressed to hear that you had been ill, and I do hope you are now on the way to complete recovery. You must take care not to overtax your strength, and must take things easily for a while. The portrait is a great pleasure and delight to me, and I thank you most heartily for sending it.î Born in Odessa, Ukraine, Johann Kremenezky (1850-1934) died on October 26, 1934, less than four months after Weizmann wrote this letter to an ill Kremenezky who he hoped was ìnow on the way to complete recovery.î At the Fifth Zionist Congress held in 1901 in Basle, Switzerland, on the recommendation of Kremenezky and Dr. Theodor Herzl, the President of the Congress, adopted a proposal to establish a Jewish fund, a Palestine land-purchasing agency of the Zionist World Organization. Kremenezky was Herzl's personal secretary and advisor. The aims of Keren Kayemet LeIsrael-Jewish National Fund (JNF) were to acquire the soil of Palestine as national and inalienable property, to carry on drainage work on the land it has acquired, to carry on afforestation, to install in the settlements modern water-supply systems, and to give the soil, under a 49-year hereditary lease for cultivation, to settlers as individuals or as collective groups.

IN THE SCARCE FIRST ISSUE DUSTJACKET, with the $2.50 price and with “Recent Fiction” on the back cover. 301pp. A fine copy, pristine and unused, the varnished black cloth shiny and fresh with only a tiny amount of marking that is common to the varnish and almost no wear whatsoever, the text clean and solid and fresh. The jacket, which is quite scarce, is still very bright and attractive. The front and rear panels of the dustjacket are in quite excellent condition, bright, clean and complete, the spine panel shows a bit of evidence of shelving at the foot, and a bit of wear at the head, but this is a very pleasing and attractive copy of an important book. A FINE COPY IN SCARCE ORIGINAL DUSTJACKET OF JOHN O’HARA’S FIRST BOOK. One of the Modern Library’s Top 100 books of the 20th Century. O’Hara is particularly well-known for his uncanny ear for dialogue. Writer Fran Lebowitz called him "the real F. Scott Fitzgerald" and John Updike has likened him to Chekhov. The novel is about the self-destruction, over a three day period, of Julian English, once a member of the social elite of Gibbsville. Gibbsville is clearly O'Hara's fictionalized version of his native Pottsville, Pennsylvania.

The author's seminal first novel, easily his most desirable and scarcest work. Bruccoli A2.1.a. Modern Library 100, 22. Time 100. O’Hara did for fictional Gibbsville, Pennsylvania, what Faulkner did for Yoknapatawpha County, Mississippi: surveyed its social life and drew its psychic outlines. But he did it in utterly worldly terms, without Faulkner’s taste for mythic inference or the basso profundo of his prose. Julian English is a man who squanders what fate gave him. He lives on the right side of the tracks, with a country club membership and a wife who loves him. His decline and fall, over the course of just 72 hours around Christmas, is a matter of too much spending, too much liquor and a couple of reckless gestures. . . . That his calamity is petty and preventable only makes it more powerful."

      Glasgow: John Horn Ltd. [for the Author], 1934 - Landscape quarto (235 × 292 mm) Original green half sheep on tan linen boards, title gilt to the spine, regimental crest in green to the upper board, endpapers with repeated thistle design in pinkish-grey. A little rubbed and soiled, some light browning, one tissue-guard torn without loss, one cleanly detached, overall a very good copy. Decorative title page photographically reproduced in sepia, and 33 similar plates, 24 from line-drawings by the author, the rest from photographs, tissue-guarded, most of the guards with printed captioning, numerous line-drawn illustrations to the text of costume details, one full-page. First and only edition, extremely uncommon, just four copies traced - V & A, NLS, Guelph, and Brown, perhaps Library of Congress. This copy inscribed on the front free endpaper; "R.C. Greenwood from A.N.E. Browne, 27.III. 1925 [? for 1935]". Noted by Sutcliffe on the NAM/AMOT on-line bibliography as limited to 50 copies. Browne served with the regiment, including a period as A.D.C. to the Governor of Malta, later being severely wounded during the Boer War; "[in April 1901] the H.L.I. Mounted Infantry, serving with the 12th Mounted Infantry Battalion, had a brush with the Boers near Rietfontein, about twenty miles west of Pretoria. The action was unusual in that it was fought mounted, and Captain A. N. E. Browne was severely wounded in the mêlée, getting one bullet in his stomach and another through his arm, which later had to be amputated. In spite of this he got the better of the Boers and brought his men away safely. In his later years he wrote a book on the dress of the 71st, illustrating it himself in spite of his one arm" (Oatts, Proud Heritage, volume III). Still recorded as Adjutant 8th Battalion Highland Light Infantry in 1908.

        An atlas of infant behavior

      Yale New Haven: Yale, 1934. Gesell, Arnold (1880-1961) et al. An atlas of infant behavior: A systematic delineation of the forms and early growth of human behavior patterns. 2 vols. (Vol. I: Normative series; Vol. II: Naturalistic series). 523; 525-921pp. Halftone text illustrations. New Haven: Yale University Press, 1934. 300 x 281 mm. Original loose leaves in cloth pressure bindings, gilt-lettered front covers and spines, a little worn at spines and edges. Light toning, a few edges a little frayed, but very good.First Edition. Gesell, who originated the Child Study Center at Yale University, is considered the founder of child development in the United States. The Gesell Institute of Human Development in New Haven is named for him. Gesell is best known for his groundbreaking studies of normal child development: beginning in the 1920s, he used advanced cinematic and photographic techniques, including one-way mirrors, to record developmental milestones from infancy to adolescence. His most famous work is the Atlas of Infant Behavior, which contains 3200 photographs documenting the human infant's "visible manifestations of his maturing patterns of action and reaction. . . . Through systematic, pictorial charting, we trust that this Atlas will reveal the patterned organization of the moments and of the developmental sequences of infant behavior" (p. 11).
