        CAPRI NEL SEICENTO. DOCUMENTI E NOTE. NAPOLI, TRANI, 1934.

      In 8vo; pp.371. Dodici tavole. Esemplare a fogli chiusi. Cart. edit. slegato. Ad un secolo dalla erudita pubblicazione di Rosario Mangoni, Cerio pubblicò quest?opera che egli stesso volle definire ?catalogo ragionato della Biblioteca Caprese?. Dotto lavoro, uno dei più preziosi su Capri. Gli occhi incantati dell?autore frugano con amorosa insistenza nella storia della bella Capri, cercando quanto possa magnificarla. Al poeta così si sostituisce l?erudito che studia gli archivi per conoscere la storia dei Capitani di Capra ed Anna Crapa, delle capitolazioni che ?comunicano lo sfratto alle persone vagabonde, disutili e scandalose?, della magnifica Certosa e della sua vita. Né può sfuggire la tristezza soffusa nelle pagine sulla peste del 1656, un avvenimento tanto lontano che ancora sembra ferire l?anima di Cerio. Edizione a limitato tiraggio, copia n. 310 di 350. Dedica autografa a Kenneth Macpherson from Cerio. Sandomenico, pag. 116.

        Seven Gothic Tales.

      Putnam, London 1934. Second impression. Frontispiece by Rex Whistler. 522 pages. Orig. burgundy cloth with gilt lettering on the spine. No dust wrappers. Very good++. Spine slightly faded, and some minor signs of use.. First English edition, second impression. The American edition is the true first edition. The author's first book.** Inscribed in Danish by the author on front endpaper: "Til (i.e. "to") Bertha 15 Oktober 1943 fra (i.e. "from") ID". *** Inscribed copies of Karen Blixen's first book are extremely scarce. The American (true) first edition of "Seven Gothic Tales" was published on April 9th 1934, while the British edition came out on September 9th 1934, quickly followed by a second impression. The Danish version, "Syv fantastiske Fortællinger", translated by the author herself, was published on September 25th 1934, also under the pseudonym isak Dinesen. Dinesen was Karen Blixen's original last name, which she changed when marrying Swedish baron Blixen in January 1914. The first name Isak was chosen due to the biblical references: Karen Blixen later declared, that she was fascinated by the Old Testament tale of Sara who laughed when God himself predicted that she would give birth to a son, Isaac ("he who laughs").**** The immediate success of this book, obviously written by a Danish author, caused much stir in Denmark. On April 22nd 1934, the American publisher revealed the true identity of Isak Dinesen. However, this information came out in the Danish press about a week later and caused another sensation. Karen Blixen was world famous from about day 1. Later she used the pseudonym Isak Dinesen in almost all English language editions of her works

        Whisky

      New York: Duffield & Green, 1934. Octavo, 135 pages. First US edition. Perhaps the greatest whisky book ever written. Charles Maclean, my favorite current authority on the matter of whisky, wrote, "If I could take one whisky book to a desert island, it would be Aeneas MacDonald's Whisky. It is a shining gem of a book - polemic, passionate, provocative, poetic; romantic (nothing wrong with that); beautifully written; so amusing in places that I laugh out loud, yet so well-informed that I long suspected its author to have been a distiller or exciseman." Aeneas MacDonald is a nom de plume, and the identity of the author of Whisky, has long been debated, but Ian Buxton, in his introduction to a modern reprint of the books, reveals it to be George Malcolm Thompson, founder of the Porpoise Press. With the bookseller ticket of the James W. Robinson Co., of Los Angeles on the rear paste-down, and a receipt from the original purchase at that shop laid-in. Some offsetting from the receipt to a final blank page, other wise, truly fine, in a fine dust jacket.

        Danzig-Polen-Korridor und Grenzgebiete: Eine Bibliographie mit besponderer Berucksichtigung von Politik und Wirtschaft (The Gdansk Poland Corridor and border: a bibliography with special attention to politics and economy)

      NP Danzig: NP , 1934. First printing. Hardcover. vg. 4to. 243-463pp. Vol. 2 only. Dark blue cloth, gold lettering on spine. An extended bibliography providing a multitude of sources dealing with all aspects of the Poland corridor- the Baltic access land which Poland received at the Congress of Vienna after World War I. While the ethnic majority in the Corridor was Polish, the city of Gdansk (German: Danzig) had a significant German population, and when the Corridor split Germany from Eastern Prussia, the move drew significant anger from the Weimar Republic, which never formally acknowledged the new borders. When Hitler first took power in 1933, he reversed previous Weimar policy and entered into diplomatic negotiations with Poland, eventually signing a ten-year Polish-German Non-Aggression Pact in 1934- the year this bibliography was published. The index organizes the bibliography into 3 sections- "Danzig," "Grenzprovinzen" (border provinces), and "Grenz- und Auslandsdeutschtum des Ostens" (Borders and ex-patriots living in the East). Each of the 3 sections is then further organized into subsections dealing with the land, the history, the people, the politics, the economy, the culture, and so forth. While the text starts with page 243, it is a monographic work (the first volume was not related to the project). The bibliography was released on a yearly basis, and this 1934 printing includes the entries from 1931, 1932, and 1933. While Prinzhorn aims to construct an exhaustive account of the region, providing many Polish as well as German sources, Prinzhorn- who also wrote bibliographies for a number of other regions integral to Nazi manifest destiny, such as Sudutenland- is ultimately highly motivated to make the case for Danzig and the Corridor being ethnic German land. Text in German, in mimeographed typescript. Nazi library ink stamp on front end paper (Reichsleitung der NSDAP Amt Schrifttumspflege), slight staining and foxing on page edges. Remnants of Reichsleitung sticker on binding. Upper corner of spine bumped. Overall near fine condition.

        Einstein's Prophecy: The Future "international order" Requires "cooperation of the English-speaking nations" In 1934, he confirms that Winston Churchill feels the same way

      Einstein's Prophecy: The Future "international order" Requires "cooperation of the English-speaking nations". & & In 1934, he confirms that Winston Churchill feels the same way.& & Einstein left Germany for good in December 1932, a month before the Hitler takeover. For most of 1933 he lectured and studied in England and Belgium. In England in September, he met with Winston Churchill as well as other political leaders, scientists and intellectuals, to alert them in person about the dangers of Nazism. In October, he set sail for America, for what he thought would be a six-month appointment as an instructor in mathematics at the Institute for Advanced Study on the Princeton University campus. & & Upon his arrival in America, Einstein promptly dropped the formal veneer expected of a European professor and became an instant American in his own special way; his first act in Princeton was to buy an ice-cream cone. Far more importantly, he directly called for "a sustained co-operation between the United States and the British Empire, including possibly France and Russia". That was prophetic, because although these nations had been on the same side in World War I, there was no long-term vision for their cooperation, and with the exception of Churchill, nobody else at that early day envisaged such an unusual alliance. & & Einstein began teaching in January 1934. That month, he also read a speech advocating an Anglo-American alliance written by Nicholas Murray Butler, President of Columbia University and President Taft's running mate in 1912. He was impressed and perhaps surprised that Butler shared his vision, and wrote to inform him that there were those in England (specifically Churchill) with similar ideas.& & Typed Letter Signed, in German, Princeton, N.J., January 27, 1934, to Butler. "Yesterday I read by chance your excellent speech, in which you declare that the germ for a really effective international order may be found in the cooperation of the English-speaking nations. I had an opportunity to observe in England that your conception of the matter coincides in marked degree with that of influential English statesmen. The fashion in which you courageously represent in this country a point of view by no means popular deserves every recognition. May your seed fall on good ground." The letter "A" in the signature appears to be written over an earlier letter that did not take, whether by Einstein we cannot be sure.& & In 1934, the Atlantic Charter establishing the Atlantic Alliance Einstein here advocates was still seven years and a bloody war away. That he, a German, could foresee with clarity the role Anglo-American cooperation would need to play in the future political organization of the world is nothing short of extraordinary.
