First edition. The official account of the fourth expedition to Everest, led by Hugh Ruttledge with a team that included Frank Smythe, Eric Shipton, Wyn Harris, and L.R. Wager. Harris and Wager made a summit attempt from the famous Camp VI, reaching 28,200 feet in attempting to determine whether the northeast ridge was climbable. During this climb they came upon the ice-axe of either Mallory or Irvine, lost nine years before on their fateful climb. Harris and Wager found the 'second step' unclimbable and had to revert to a traverse of the face, when time ran out. On the return to the high camp Wager struggled to the crest of the ridge and became the first man to look down the awesome east face of Everest.

        FIVE ASTONISHING LETTERS CONCERNING WESTERN OUTLAWS SENT TO FLOYD B. STREETER

      Written by Pink Simms, 1934 - 1936. 1934 - 1936, Lewistown, Montana - First edition. Five 8 1/2" x 11" autographed letters signed May 7, June 18, August 6, October 27, and February 9, 1934-36. The letters were sent to Floyd B. Streeter, author of the Ben Thompson book, Ben Thompson, Man With A Gun. Total of 18 pages. Pink Simms was replying to a letter of inquiry from Streeter concerning the life and times of Ben Thompson. Simms' response to Streeter in these letters exhibit Streeter's many questions concerning outlaws of the American West. The letters are excellent recollections of the short-lived outlaw and cowboy period of the American West. Simms made his first money when he became a rider with John Chisum of Lincoln County, New Mexico. With this introduction to Streeter, Simms proceeded in his letters to describe more than just Ben Thompson but included a host of other frontier lawmen and outlaws such as Wyatt Earp, Bat Masterson, Wes Hardin, Clay Allison, et al. He was not an admirer of Wyatt Earp or his biographer Stuart Lake: "Wyatt had nerve of a sort but he was no line wolf, he liked to lead a pack -- all bad. I would be willing to let him rest if his would-be apologist would do the same. I happen to know that several substantial authors were offered Wyatt's book before Lake. Having a knowledge of the true facts they turned it down flat." He discusses the habits of the town marshals and considered them "common pimps." He also gives the account of the killing of Ben Thompson and why it was considered a massacre. Simms thought more of Thompson than Earp stating:"When it comes to pure unadulterated guts I think he was the peer of all famous gunfighters." Simms was also the most knowledgeable of the Lincoln County War because he lived there and spoke with thise who participated. A very important grouping of letters in very good to near fine condition and housed in a four-point slipcase with a leather label on the spine and titles stamped in gold gilt.

        A.L.s. Sinclair Lewis to Charles Tuttle.

      South Pomfret, VT: n.p. 1934. Letter (8 1/2 by 11 inches). A.L.s., dated June 2, 1934, from novelist Sinclair Lewis to bookseller Charles Tuttle of Rutland, Vermont. Lewis noted that he was returning "master cards" of Civil War books of interest, with the expectation that Tuttle would send him the books with an invoice. Lewis also promised to return cards listing books not of interest to him. Lewis also enclosed a check for $ 1.50, in payment of a previous bill. This letter reflects the means by which booksellers controlled inventory before the advent of information technology.Lewis (1885-1951) was born in Sauk Centre, Minnesota, became a noted novelist, winning the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1930. He published classics such as Babbitt, Main Street, and It Can't Happen Here, among others. In 1928, he purchased a second home in West Pomfret, Vermont, where he evidently became acquainted with Tuttle.Charles Tuttle (1915-1993) was a noted publisher and bookseller, the founder of Charles E. Tuttle Company. He became known for publishing African-American literature and for dealing in rare books. Tuttle was part of the United States Army of Occupation in Japan at the end of World War II, where he established a publishing company.Folded, and bent at lower left corner.

        The White Sybil & Men of Avalon [Smith's Copy]

      Everett, PA: Fantasy Publications. Everett, PA, Fantasy Publications, n.d. [1934]. First Edition. First Impression. The author's copy, with his pencil annotations and signature at the end of his entry. Originally titled 'The White Sybil of Polarion', Smith had the story rejected for Weird Tales in 1932. William Crawford, who published Lovecraft's Shadow over Innsmouth under his Visionary imprint, solicited stories from Smith for his Unusual Stories magazine. Smith sent him The White Sybil, which had been revised somewhat from the rejected manuscript, and Crawford put this pamphlet together. [Smith, Maze of the Enchanter, 2008, p197]. The annotations are minimal, mainly typos and the odd addition. And let's not forget David H. Keller, an important figure in the then developing field of science fiction. Only 500 copies published. Despite the required edits, the publication is a reasonably well put together pamphlet. ALS from noted SF fan, dealer and publisher Roy A. Squires, outlining details of the transaction. Not mentioned in Eshbach's 'Over My Shoulder'. Covers with some stains and toning to the paper. Currey identifies two states of the item, this being the state with two dots on a 22mm line (the other being three dots and 25mm). This being the author's copy may suggest priority, but it's pretty much immaterial. Locke states that only 250 of the 500 copies were bound, and there are at least eight variants in colour [Locke, Spectrum, p75, Vol III]. Presented in custom clamshell box. Provenance: Sylvia Starshine thence George Locke. [5971, Hyraxia Books]. n.d. [1934] . Very Good. Paperback. 1st Edition. 1934.

        The Daring Young Man On The Flying Trapeze + full chemise and slipcase

      New York: Randon House(1934). Stated 1st Edition, and one of only 1900 copies of the1st Printing of the author's 1st book, in original dustjacket, and housed in a grayish-green cloth-covered full chemise and slipcase with a black leather spine label with gold printing. The Near Fine book is bound in rough finish woven ivory colored cloth with a black spine, a gold foil with black printing wrap-around title band mounted on the binding, and it has publisher's orange upper page edges. The book is straight, clean, very tight (probably unread), with no previous owner's writing or soiling. There is a very slight bump to the upper spine end by the back fold, a tiny black dot (pencil-point sized) to the lower rear binding panel, and a short, narrow depression to the front of the gold foil band that didn't remove any color. The dustjacket is surprisingly well preserved for aged uncoated paper - very close to Near Fine but I'll call it VG+. It is price intact, clean and not fragile, with some of the normal toning to the edges (less than it looks like on our scan) and a bit more toning to the spine though the black and red spine printing isn't faded at all. It has 3 small edge nicks at spine end folds, 1 very short completely closed edge tear upper front panel near the spine, a small surface abrasion at the lower spine end not interferring with lettering - and that's it as far as wear. There are a few faint finger smudges that aren't obtrusive at all. The dustjacket is now protected by a clear, removable heavy mylar cover. The chemise and slipcase have been custom made to fit the book at some time in the past. The chemise folds to cover the book all the way around (with ends open) and has a ribbon-pull to get the book and chemise out of the slipcase easily. There is just a tiny bit of cloth wear to the outside edges of the slipcase, and some small surface scratches not affecting the gilt lettering to the leather title label on the slipcase's closed side. Our scan makes the chemise look a different color than the slipcase but it isn't - both are the darker color shown in the slipcase spine image. Quite a handsome presentation of the author's 1st book of short stories. ; 9-1/8" x 5-3/4"; 270 pages, 20, 13, 14, NF/VG+

        Ovtsevodstvo

      1934 - Very Good. Some toning to paper. Ovtsevodstvo. By M. F. Ivanov. Rare book on sheep breeding, published 1934 in Moscow (1933 or title page). Text in Russian. Askaniia Breed of Sheep a fine-fleeced breed developed in the Ukrainian Scientific Research Institute for Animal Breeding (Askaniia-Nova) by Academician M. F. Ivanov (member, V. I. Lenin Ail-Union Academy of Agricultural Sciences) in the period from 1925 to 1934 by systematic selective breeding of local merino sheep, chosen for their wool yield and liveweight, which were crossed with rams of the American Rambouillet. Great attention was paid to the care and feeding of the animals. The sheep had a strong constitution and good body formation. The Askaniia breed of sheep is outstanding for both wool and meat productivity. The liveweight of the rams is between 110and 140 kg, reaching a maximum of 180 kg; the liveweight of the ewes in the best flocks is 60–70 kg. The average wool yield of the rams is 10–12 kg; that of the ewes, 5.5–6.0 kg. The Askaniia breed holds the world record for wool yield—30.6 kg. Most of the wool is rated 64 and is 7–8 cm long. The yield of pure wool is 40–55 percent. The sheep are well adapted to a dry climate. The breed is widely used for improved fleece qualities. It is raised in the southern Ukraine and in the RSFSR. The best herds are on the Askaniia-Nova pedigree stock breeding farm and on the Krasnyi chaban (Kherson Oblast), “Kommunist” (Zaporozh’e Oblast), and Shmidt (Nikolaevsk Oblast) pedigree stocksovkhozes.

Written from Princeton, dated 13 February 1934, and addressed to Reinhold Pietsch of New York, the letter reads in full (translated from the original German):Dear Mr. Pietsch,I was very pleased with your kind invitation, as well as the fact that you are so concerned with such scientific questions. I shall probably have to go to Europe in the summer, where I have undertaken certain obligations.
As for the search for truth, I know from my own painful searching, with its many blind alleys, how hard it is to take a reliable step, be it ever so small, towards the understanding of that which is truly significant.My workload does not allow me to get more involved with your investigations. Please continue to enjoy your search.Kindly and with best thanks to you,[Signed] A. Einstein.In February 1934, when this letter was written, Einstein had only recently arrived in the United States. By April 1934, "Einstein announced that he was staying in Princeton indefinitely and assuming full-time status at the Institute. As it turned out [despite his thoughts of going to Europe revealed in the letter], he would never live anywhere else for the remaining twenty-one years of his life" (Isaacson, 433).The sentiment expressed in this letter is one of Einstein's most oft-quoted remarks. It was published in Albert Einstein: The Human Side: New Glimpses from His Archives (Princteon University Press, 1979) as "a letter that Einstein wrote on 13 February 1934 to an interested layman with whom he corresponded". Also published in: Gaither's Dictionary of Scientific Quotations (2008); Thus Spoke Einstein: on Life and Living: Wisdom of Albert Einstein in Context (2011); Mathematicians on Creativity (2014); 10 Quotes: Inspire and Motivate (2004); and many others.Einstein elsewhere said that his supreme aim in life is the quest for truth, making this letter - revealing his understanding of the painful and slow progress of the quest - particularly poignant.

        Mercantilism

      1934. First Edition . HECKSCHER, Eli F. Mercantilism. London: George Allen & Unwin, (1934). Octavo, original green cloth, original dust jackets. $2200.First edition in English of this economic history of Europe from the 16th to the 18th century focusing on identifying the key characteristics of mercantilism, translated by Mendel Shapiro, in original dust jackets.One of the great classics of economic history, Mercantilism explores the role of mercantilist ideas in Europe over two centuries. Though Heckscher acknowledges the problems with setting forth a strict definition for mercantilism, he succeeds in laying out a set of mercantilism's fundamental characteristics. Today, mercantilism is largely regarded as a system of economic nationalism meant to create wealthy nations by reducing imports and increasing exports—a system often leading to global imbalances and war. While for much of the 20th century Heckscher's work was ignored due to concerns about the rise of the far left, its relevance is again clear as new concerns emerge about power imbalances with regard to a totalitarian right. Heckscher, writing as fascist governments were gaining power all over Europe, offers important insight into the economic conditions that lead—and have always led—to great danger in Europe and, indeed, worldwide. His analysis of 16th to 18th century Europe was meant to be relevant in the tumultuous political and economic environment that marked 1934, but it is no less relevant today. First published in Swedish in 1931. This first edition in English was prepared from the German edition and was revised by the author. Books fine, price-clipped dust jackets with light wear and toning to extremities. A near-fine copy.
