        The Free Fishers, in Chambers's Journal. [7 Parts, first appearance]

      London: W. and R. Cahmbers. 1934, 1934. First magazine issue publication of Buchan's The Free Fishers, published in Chambers Journal between January and July 1934. Publisher's decorated orange paper wraps. Bright and clean, minor edgewear, very good indeed with some very minor chipping to spine ends and edges. A very bright clean set. In addition to the Buchan there's the usual smattering of adventure fiction, articles on Oyster Culture in Scotland, how to secure Australia against the Dingo menace and a blizzard of advertisments for pipe tobacco, support garments, catarrh cures and the treatment of mental health issues vying for place with cases of thin wine biscuits and a "useful folding cake stand". Splendid stuff, scarce in periodical form and even scarcer in this splendid condition.

        ON OUR WAY with the Sotheby's 16 June 1992 auction catalogue

      New York: John Day, (1934). First Edition. Hardcover. Spine sunned, as usual. Very Good in a Very Good dustwrapper supplied from another copy. Original blue cloth. Early issue with errors on pages x and 162 uncorrected and with the errata slip laid in. An important book, the recently elected president's presentation of his plans, referred to as the "New Deal" by the people, to pull America from the pit of the Depression. INSCRIBED and SIGNED on the front free endpaper "For Babe/with love from/Franklin D. Roosevelt." This book sold as lot 273 in Sotheby's 16 June 1992 auction as the personal copy of Marguerite ("Missy") Le Hand, FDR's personal secretary from 1920 until illness forced her retirement in 1942. She worked with FDR both in Albany and at the White House during his first three terms as president, establishing an intimate relationship that many thought, and still think, went beyond friendship. We have uncovered no other instance, however, when FDR referred to her as "Babe." Possibly the recipient was Barbara "Babe" Cushing, the youngest daughter of the famous surgeon, Dr. Harvey Cushing, and later married to CBS tycoon William Paley. Her sister, Betsy, was at this time married to FDR's son, James, and living with him in the White House where she often served as a companion to the lonely president. Possibly, FDR was writing this inscription to the younger sister of his daughter-in-law. The question remains: What was this book doing in the possessions of Missy Le Hand? Is that "e" in "Babe" actually an "s" and this copy is inscribed to Eleanor with FDR's pet name, "Babs," for her? Perhaps we will never have an answer.

        Une main] Eine hand *

      Rascher, Zürich 1934. - Relié toile beige, titrée et décorée d'un motif en sépia, jaquette illustrée de Walter Diggelmann. Un an après l'originale de Grasset déjà, l'un des quelques livres de Ramuz offert en primeur à l'éditeur français, cette version allemande, truffée d'un curieux complément. Qu'on en juge; dédicacé par l'auteur en 1937 à James Aeschlimann, patron de la firme "Avanti", l'ouvrage contient 18 pages anonymes de traduction manuscrite de l'allemand en français, probablement d'après cet exemplaire. Cela équivaut, grosso modo, à une trentaine des pages imprimées de l'édition Grasset, à ceci près par exemple que les derniers feuillets autographes ne correspondent pas au texte français. L'édition allemande aurait-elle donc été traduite directement d'un manuscrit ou d'après une autre version, peut-être de la pré originale publiée dans le périodique Aujourd'hui ? Un petit mystère de plus à verser au dossier. Édition originale, avec mention "Erstes und zweites Tausend".

        Vol. 24 of 29 Atlases of Insurance Maps for Queens. Flushing Heights & Jamaica

      Sanborn Map Company, New York 1934 - This volume includes Hillcrest and part of Jamaica Estates, Grand Central Parkway to the south and Horace Harding Expressway (Long Island Expressway) to the north. Also shown is Cedar Grove Cemetery (Mt. Hebron Cemetery) and a Queens neighborhood reference inset. The Sanborn map collection consists of a uniform series of large scale maps, dating from 1867 to the present depicting the commercial, industrial, and residential sections of some twelve thousand cities and towns in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The maps were designed to assist fire insurance agents in determining the degree of hazard associated with a particular property and therefore show the size, shape and construction of dwellings, commercial buildings, and factories as well as fire walls locations of windows and doors, sprinkler systems, and types of roofs. The maps also indicate widths and names of streets, property boundaries, building use, and house and block numbers. They show locations of water mains, giving their dimensions, and of fire alarm boxes and hydrants. Sanborn maps are an unrivaled source of information about the structure and use of buildings in American Cities. The collection includes some fifty thousand editions of fire insurance maps comprising an estimated seven hundred thousand individual sheets. The Library of Congress holdings represent the largest extant collection of maps produced by the Sanborn Map Company. The majority of the maps were acquired by the Library through copyright deposit, but the collection was substantially enriched in 1967 when the Bureau of the Census transferred to the Library of Congress a complete set. The 1,899 loose-leaf binders were particularly noteworthy because they included later editions than those previously acquired by the Library. The Bureau of the Census set of maps had been regularly updated by printed, paste-on corrections supplied by the Sanborn Map Company, whereas the Library of Congress copies were retained in the form in which they were copyrighted. Atlas. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Massive elephant folio. Decorative calligraphic titles, indices, and key maps. Contains a set of 46 maps along with changes recorded on paste-on correction slips through 1974. Quarter leather binding with gilt title on front and spine. Original protective canvas cover in good condition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Eine anthroposophisch angehauchte Art, mit dem Totentanzmotiv umzugehen. Fast scheint es sich um einen eurythmische Tanz zu handeln. Der Totentanz ist ein Gemeinschaftswerk von Hans Zimmermann (1897 - 1972) und seiner Frau (verstarb 2001) aus der Zeit um 1930.

        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.

        Lust for Life.

      London: Longmans, Green and Co, 1934 - A marvellous pair of Stone's now-classic novel based on the life of Vincent van Gogh. Each volume is inscribed twice by Stone to Baltimore collector A.B.
