        LA MIA BATTAGLIA. Prefazione inedita dell'Autore per l'edizione italiana.

      Milano Bompiani 1934 8° Pagine 432 Legatura coeva da amatore in mezza tela rossa. Dorso in pelle rossa. Titolo fregi e monogramma del precedente possessore in oro. Ritratto di Hitler in antiporta. Ottima copia. Rarissima prima edizione italiana datata 15 Marzo 1934. "In Italia il libro venne stampato per la prima volta nel 1934 dalla casa editrice Bompiani su ordine di Mussolini. Durante i colloqui di Stresa dello stesso anno Mussolini definì il Mein Kampf "un mattone leggibile solo dalle persone più colte e intelligenti". Mein Kampf (La mia battaglia) è il libro nel quale Adolf Hitler espose il proprio pensiero politico e delineò il programma del partito nazista, accompagnandolo ad un'autobiografia. Il testo venne definito il catechismo della Gioventù hitleriana. Secondo più testimonianze, nella redazione del testo, ed in particolare nella correzione delle bozze, Hitler fu aiutato da un amico, il sacerdote cattolico Bernhard Stempfle, peraltro rimasto vittima della Notte dei lunghi coltelli. Hitler compose il proprio programma politico assieme a Rudolf Hess durante l'anno di reclusione (1924) a Landsberg am Lech, seguito al suo tentato colpo di Stato a Monaco e successivamente - dopo esser stato liberato il dicembre dello stesso anno - sull'Obersalzberg. Il primo volume, intitolato Eine Abrechnung ("Una resa dei conti") fu pubblicato il 18 luglio 1925; il secondo, Die nationalsozialistische Bewegung ("Il movimento nazional-socialista"), nel 1926. Il titolo originale scelto da Hitler era "Quattro anni e mezzo di lotta contro menzogna, stupidità e codardia". L'editore Max Amann, per ragioni editoriali, decise di sintetizzarlo in Mein Kampf ("La mia lotta" o "La mia battaglia"). Nel 1930 il libro era venduto al prezzo di 12 Reichsmark e veniva stampato nel formato 12 x 18,9 centimetri - lo stesso normalmente adoperato per la Bibbia. Con i diritti d'autore Hitler acquistò il Berghof nelle Alpi Salisburghesi nel 1933.

        Marlborough

      London, George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd., , 1934–9. His Life and Times. Large octavo., 4 vols. Original purple cloth, titles gilt to spines, in dust jackets. Profusely illustrated with plates, portrait, maps and facsimiles. Endpapers a little foxed and browned, but internally very clean, spines slightly sunned with the typical ghosting through the jackets, jackets similarly sunned and chipped with a few edge-splits, but a very nice set. Limited Presentation Edition. Volume I, Second Impression of the New Edition, revised, 1939; Volume II, Second Impression, 1934; Volumes III & IV, First Editions, 1936 and 1938 respectively. Inscribed on the front free endpaper of Volume I; "To Cyril Newall from Winston S. Churchill. May 1941". Newall served with the RFC in WWI, becoming involved in the training for, and organization of, long-range reconnaissance and bombing operations; "41 wing... was formed under his command at Ochey, near Nancy, in October 1917 to specialize in raids on Germany. That brigade, led by Newall as a brigadier-general from December, joined Trenchard's independent bombing force after May 1918. Its actual achievements were small, but both Trenchard and Newall became convinced that the morale impact of bombing on Germans had been devastating" (ODNB). In the inter-war years he rose through a number of important postings including four years as head of RAF Middle East, becoming Chief of Air Staff in 1937, "Sir John Slessor, who worked closely with Newall in the late 1930s, described him as 'the prime architect of the wartime air force'." Replaced by Portal in 1940, Newall was promoted to Air Marshal, appointed to the Order of Merit, and made Governor-General of New Zealand.

        Marlborough, His Life and Times, a full set of jacketed British first editions inscribed and dated by Churchill

      This jacketed full British first edition, first printing set of Churchill's Marlborough is inscribed and dated by Churchill in Volume II. Churchill signed only his first name indicating that the recipient was a personal friend or close associate. The inscription is in black ink on four lines on the ffep reading "To Mary M / from / Winston / Nov. 1934". Mary M is Lady Mary Minto - more formally Lady Mary Caroline Elliot Murray Kynynmound, Countess of Minto (1858-1940). Lady Minto was the wife of Gilbert Elliot-Murray-Kynynmound, 4th Earl of Minto (1845-1914) who served as Governor General of Canada from 1898-1904 and Viceroy of India from 1905-1910. When Churchill was a young officer in India seeking notoriety with despatches for The Daily Telegraph, it was Lord Minto who recognized Churchill's talent, but advised Churchill's mother, Lady Randolph, not to sign Winston's name to his work. Churchill's mother initially followed this advice, to the consternation of Winston who subsequently insisted on publishing his name with his despatches: "I had written them with the design of bringing my personality before the electorate. As to getting in trouble with the authorities, I am just as responsible now that they are not signed as if they had been." (Gilbert, Vol. I, pp. 355-356). Rejecting Lord Minto's advice harmed neither Churchill's career nor his relationship with the Mintos; Churchill spent Christmas 1900 as their guest at Government House in Ottawa. Also present was Pamela Plowden, in whom Churchill had harbored strong romantic interest. Still seeing to young Winston's welfare, Lord Minto wrote to Winston's mother "I think he ran no risks here - everything seemed to me to be very tolerably platonic". (Gilbert, Vol. I, p. 544). When Lord Minto was appointed Viceroy of India in 1905, Churchill was already a seasoned five-year veteran of Parliament. This time it was Winston who expressed concerns to Lady Randolph, but Lord Minto proved responsible for much admired reforms under the Liberal government of Churchill's party. (Gilbert, Vol. II, p.95) Lord Minto died in 1914, but Lady Minto lived to see the impetuously talented young man she hosted for Christmas in 1900 become Prime Minister of wartime Britain in 1940. Clearly, their association endured in the interval, as he inscribed this volume to her in 1934. Churchill's monumental biography of his great ancestor, John Churchill first Duke of Marlborough, was a ten year effort and is the most substantial published work of Churchill's "wilderness years" in the 1930s. The final volume was published on the eve of the Second World War. Published in four volumes between 1933 and 1938, Marlborough was well received - both critically and aesthetically. Collectors please note that the inscribed Volume II is a first edition, first printing - not a later printing. This volume is in fine condition. The binding is clean, tight, and square with no fading and virtually no wear. The contents are crisp, bright, and tight, appearing unread. A trivial hint of spotting is confined to the text block edges, which remain bright white with no age-toning. Age has slightly faded the author's inscription, but it remains clear with no ink spreading or smudging. The volume II dust jacket is a true first printing, unclipped and highly complete with minor wear to extremities, minor soiling and spine toning and a closed tear at the upper front hinge. Volumes I, III, and IV are likewise first edition, first printing in correct, unclipped first edition first printing dust jackets. The books are in fine condition, with clean, unfaded bindings, no previous ownership marks, and no spotting. The Volume I, III, and IV dust jackets are all unclipped first printings, varying in condition from very good plus to near-fine plus. All four dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A97.2(I-IV).a, Woods/ICS A40(aa), Langworth p.166.

        THE SPIRIT OF MAN. AN ANTHOLOGY IN ENGLISH & FRENCH FROM THE PHILOSOPHERS & POETS MADE BY THE POET LAUREATE IN 1915 & DEDICATED BY GRACIOUS PERMISSION TO HIS MAJESTY THE KING

      London: Longmans, Green and Co. Ltd., 1934. Reprint. cloth. Mild foxing, browning to endpapers. Near Fine. Green cloth with approximately 330 pages printed on thin (but strong) India paper. An anthology of inspirational writing first published in 1916 during the First World War. With a SIGNED gift inscription from three-time Pulitzer Prize winner Thornton Wilder on the front free endpaper: "Charlotte Lincoln/from Thornton/Jan. 3. 1936." The recipient was evidently a relative, as both Charlotte and Lincoln are Wilder family names. Thornton Wilder's paternal grandparents were Amos Lincoln Wilder and Charlotte Topliff Wilder. His great-grandmother was Lucy Lincoln. Thornton's Wilder's sister was named Charlotte, and he had at least one other close family member (an aunt) by that name. Our research indicates the Lincoln in "Charlotte Lincoln" was probably a middle name, since the Wilders often used family surnames as middle names. Thornton Wilder's middle name, for example was Niven, his mother's maiden name. Beyond that, we were unable to pinpoint exactly which relative "Charlotte Lincoln" was from Wilder's large family.

        Bayside, Douglas Manor and Douglaston: Vol. 12 of 29 Atlases of Insurance Maps for Queens

      Sanborn Map Company New York: Sanborn Map Company, 1934. hardcover. very good. Atlas. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Massive elephant folio. Decorative calligraphic titles, indices, and key maps. Contains a set of 91 maps along with changes recorded on paste-on correction slips through 1973. Quarter leather binding with gilt title on front and spine. Medium tear to spine of original protective canvas cover. This volume includes part of Auburndale and Little Neck, the border to Nassau County, Fort Totten, Clearview Golf Course, and the Horace Harding/Clearview Expressways Interchange. 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.

        The Story of a Country Boy

      Farrar & Rinehart New York: Farrar & Rinehart. (1934). First. First edition. Orange cloth gilt. One corner bumped, near fine without dustwrapper. A novel about the evolution of a "self-made man" from a humble country bumpkin to a pretentious captain of industry, by this satirical, proto-feminist novelist who has recently been rediscovered. Basis for the 1935 film Man of Iron directed by William C. McGann, and featuring Barton MacLane and Mary Astor. Gore Vidal, whose critical essay helped restore her fame, called her a better satirist than Twain and said she was "our best comic novelist," and Ernest Hemingway once told her she was his "favorite living novelist" -- although she was not averse to poking fun at Hemingway himself, which she did in her novel, The Wicked Pavilion. Novelist Lisa Zeidner, in a review of a fairly recent biography of Powell in The New York Times Book Review, said that "she is wittier than Dorothy Parker, dissects the rich better than F. Scott Fitzgerald, is more plaintive than Willa Cather in her evocation of the heartland and has a more supple control of satirical voice than Evelyn Waugh, the writer to whom she's most often compared." Powell was an archetypal free spirit, living much of her life in Greenwich Village, taking -- and flaunting -- lovers frequently although she was married, and mercilessly skewering the postures and foibles of an array of New York types, from bohemian artists to wealthy tycoons. .

        Paideia. Die Formung des griechischen Menschen. 3 Bde.

      Berlin & Leipzig, Walter de Gruyter & Co., 1934, 1944 & 1947. Lex 8vo. 3 original blue full cloth w. gilt lettering to spines and to front board of volume one. Spines a bit sunned, hinges of volume one weak, hinges of volumes two and three restored w. new endpapers A nice and clean copy. (8), 513, (3); (8), 418; (8), 462 pp.. The first edition (of all three volumes) of Jaeger's seminal "three-volume history of the Greek mind" (his own words), which came to hugely influence the study of Greek culture and civilization as well as modern philosophy and political thought. Few other modern works within the field of classics and philology have had an impact comparable to this classic of the twentieth century.The German-born classicist Werner Wilhelm Jaeger (1888-1961) was educated at the Universities of Marburg and Berlin, and from the latter he received a Ph.D. for his dissertation on the Metaphysics of Aristotle, a work which landed him the professorship and Nietzsche's chair at the University of Basel, -without having written his Habilitationsschrift! In 1921, Jaeger settled in Berlin, which he had to leave in 1936 because of Hitler, and he immigrated to America, where he stayed for the rest of his life. Here he became professor, first at the University of Chicago, and in 1939 at Harvard University. Jaeger had written and published the first volume of his main work "Paideia, The Idols of Greek Culture" a couple of years before he left Germany, and in America he finished the last two volumes of this massive philosophical and political work on education, culture and the ideals that formed Greek civilization in ancient Greece. Under the name of "Paideia", the cultural nature of education is traced from Homer to Demosthenes in the hope of giving back the values of the ancient Greeks to 20th century Europe, which according to Jaeger was dominated by decadence and cultural decline. After the appearance of Jeager's work, the concept of "Paideia" became hugely influential among critics of educational systems, and the work in general has moulded the way that modern man understood the culture of the ancient Greeks as well as his own. The work has had a deep impact on several fields, ranging from philosophy and politics to sociology, classics etc. It is rare to find all three volumes together in first editions
