        Good-bye, Mr. Chips

      Little, Brown, Boston 1934 - First edition, preceding the English edition by six months. Modest offsetting to the front endpapers from a clipping, thus near fine in an exceptionally bright, just about fine dustwrapper. Basis for two films: the 1939 Sam Wood-directed version with Robert Donat (who beat out Clark Gable, Henry Fonda and others for the Best Actor Oscar), Greer Garson, and Paul Henreid, and the 1969 remake directed by Herbert Ross with Peter O'Toole, Petula Clark, and Michael Redgrave. A very nice copy of the true first, American edition, which is much less common than the English edition. As nice a copy as we have seen. [Attributes: First Edition]

        [YEAR OF 1932: THE END OF RUSSIAN AVANT-GARDE] Khudozhniki RSFSR za XV let (1917-1933): Zhivopis', skul'ptura, plakat, karrikatura, grafika. Katalog vystavki: Grafika [i.e. Artists of RSFSR for 15 years (1917-1933): Painting, Sculpture, Poster, Cartoon, Graphics. Exhibition Catalogue: Graphics]

      Moscow: Vsekokhudozhnik, 1934. 80 pp., 47 pl. 18x15 cm. In original printed overlapped wrappers. Very good. A few pale stains on the spine, tears of the wrapper's extremities. One of 1000 copies. Rare. This is a catalogue of graphic art from the exhibition «Artists of the RSFSR for 15 years» which opened on June 27, 1933 in Moscow. It was shown a year earlier in Leningrad in the State Russian Museum featuring the best works of Soviet artists created during that period. In all, more than 3500 works were demonstrated in Moscow. The catalogue includes a fragment from A.S. Bubnov's speech (he was a secretary of the organizing committee), names of members of the committee, and a list of graphic works in alphabetical order by the artist and chronologically for each artist. 47 black and white plates include works by Altman, Lebedev, Filonov, Deineka, Kravchenko, Tyrsa, Pakhomov, Vereisky, Kustodiev, Favorsky and others. The Moscow Jubilee Exhibition included five sections, forming five independent, completely finished parallel exhibitions, united by a common chronological framework and unity of the design set. The sculpture section represented in Leningrad by a very meager and random set of works had to be rebuilt as an equal and integral sector for the Moscow exhibition. Also completely new in comparison with the Leningrad exhibition were sections of the Soviet poster with a caricature and theatrical and decorative art, sections perhaps the most remarkable in terms of exceptional creative brilliancy. The exhibition was planned as an important political event - demonstration of cultural evolution, growth and prosperity, the superiority to the decaying West. In fact it became a watershed separating avant-garde from the official Soviet art. Although the exhibition was opened with Malevich's work hanging at the entrance, the triumph of avant-gardists came to an end, the state made a bet on socialist realism. For the lack of understanding of the moment, the exhibition curator Nikolai Punin was fired, later arrested and sent to the GULag. Here are just some of the names of the exhibitors: A. Arkhipov, I. Grabar, A. Deineka, P. Konchalovsky, P. Korin, A. Kuprin, B. Kustodiev, A. Lentulov, I. Mashkov, K. Petrov-Vodkin, M. Saryan, V. Tatlin, A. Tyshler, P. Filonov, A. Shevchenko, D. Shterenberg, K. Yuon; N. Danko, I. Efimov, A. Matveev, V. Mukhina, M. Rukovishnikov, I. Shadr; V. Deni, G. Klutsis, V. Lebedev, V. Mayakovsky, D. Moore, Stenberg brothers, M. Cheremnykh, B. Efimov, Kukryniksy and many others. Every artist had a different life after this exhibition. For example, Filonov about whom Grabar' later said that he took «a special place at the exhibition by creating his intricate style of elements of cubism and calligraphy, flavored with a strong dose of homegrown philosophy» wasn't able to exhibit for several decades after that because official Soviet art society didn't recognize him as a legit artist.

Julius Streicher der Gauführer von Franken, stand immer in der vordersten Linie der nationalsozialistischen Front. Furchtlos und treu dem deutschen Blut und dem nationalsozialistischen Gedanken trat er für Deutschland in die Schranken. Er hatte Juda als den Todfeind, als den Verderber Deutschlands erkannt, er kannte die Riesenmacht aber auch die Schwächen Judas. Er war einer der ersten, der, von der überragenden Bedeutung Adolf Hitlers überzeugt, sich ihm anschloss und seiner Führung unterstellte. Julius Streicher schreckten nicht Drohungen Gefängnis, zielbewusst kämpfte er gegen den Verderber Deutschlands, und mancher wuchtige Hieb seines Sturmes brachte einen prominenten Juden zur Strecke. Diesem tapferen Vorkämpfer widmen wir unser Buch "Juden sehen Dich an", in Anerkenntnis seiner großen Verdienste. Wir wissen, daß der alte böse Feind noch nicht ganz geschlagen ist, und daß deshalb weiterhin gekämpft werden muss bis zum Endsieg, und wir hoffen, mit unserem Buch ein weiteres Rüstzeug gegen diesen Feind geschaffen zu haben.

        Logische Syntax der Sprache.

      Wien, J. Springer. 1934 - XI + 1 + 274 + 2 S. Priv. Lwd. späterer Zeit, mit aufgezogener RTitelei. EA. - Schriften zur wissenschaftlichen Weltauffassung, Bd. 8. - R. leicht berieben, leichte Gbrsp. Schönes Expl. - Carnap, (1891 - 1970), wurde als Sohn des Webers Johannes S. Carnap und der Lehrerin Anna, geb. Dörpfeld, geboren. Die Eltern waren tief religiös, gleichzeitig aber sehr tolerant; bewußt praktizierten sie das Christentum als Mittel zur Führung eines guten Lebens. Diese Grundhaltung der Toleranz prägte Carnap für sein Leben, und dies insbesondere dann, als er sich, beeinflußt durch die Schriften Goethes zum Christentum wie auch der Schriften von Ernst Haeckel und Wilhelm Ostwald, vom Christentum abwandte und sich eine teils atheistische und teils agnostische Lebenseinstellung erarbeitete. In der Zeit seines Studiums in Jena und Freiburg/Breisgau 1910-14 schloß er sich der Jugendbewegung an, ohne allerdings deren Tendenz zum Nationalismus mit zu vollziehen. Vielmehr entwickelte er gegen Ende des Ersten Weltkriegs -- den er teils an der Westfront und teils im Militärinstitut in Berlin verbrachte -- ein Konzept eines undogmatischen und insbesondere nichtmarxistischen Sozialismus, genauer: eines auf den Grundsätzen eines politischen Liberalismus beruhenden Konzepts des ökonomischen Sozialismus. Dieses behielt er zeitlebens bei, da er einerseits der Ansicht war, daß das System des Kapitalismus die Menschheit in den wirtschaftlichen und damit auch sozialen Abgrund steuert, und da er sich andererseits ein unbeirrtes Vertrauen in die Fähigkeiten der menschlichen Vernunft bewahrte: Die von einem Höchstmaß an Vernunft geleiteten Entscheidungen auch in den Bereichen des Alltags müssen nach seiner Sicht schließlich im individuellen wie auch im sozialen Bereich die Oberhand über die durch Emotionen und Triebe gesteuerten Entscheidungen haben, eben weil sie -- anders als diese -- die Auswirkungen nüchterner Abschätzung sind und damit letztlich die größere Überzeugungskraft haben . Nur geduldiges, präzises Arbeiten in kleinen Schritten, Baustein für Baustein sozusagen, ausgeführt durch immer mehr Menschen, die vom Erfolg eines solchen Arbeitens angesprochen werden, führt die Menschheit demnach weiter. Dies gilt dann auch und in besonderem Maß für die Philosophie, die nicht durch neuerliche, Luftschlössern gleichende grandiose Entwürfe, sondern durch minutiöse Kleinarbeit in Gemeinschaft mit Gleichgesinnten vorangebracht und zu einer Wissenschaft entwickelt werden kann; als Instrument dieses Arbeitens benützte er die symbolische Logik, die er in Jena bei Gottlob Frege sowie aus den Schriften von Bertrand Russell kennengelernt hatte. In seinem Buch über die Grundlagen der menschlichen Erfahrungserkenntnis zeigte er beispielhaft, wie ein solcher Weg zu begehen sei. Mit dieser Schrift habilitierte er sich 1926 bei Moritz Schlick in Wien, und er publizierte sie 1928 unter dem Titel Der logische Aufbau der Welt; sie machte ihn mit einem Schlag international bekannt und berühmt. In Wien begründete er mit Schlick und Neurath eine Diskussionsrunde, die unter dem Namen "Wiener Kreis" bekannt wurde und die seit 1930, zusammen mit dem "Berliner Kreis" unter Hans Reichenbach, die Zeitschrift "Erkenntnis" als Organ dieser neuen, eine Einheitswissenschaft anstrebenden philosophischen Richtung herausgab. 1931 wurde Carnap auf den Lehrstuhl für Naturphilosophie an der Deutschen Univ. in Prag berufen; in den Jahren danach besuchten ihn namhafte junge Wissenschaftler aus der angelsächsischen Geisteswelt, unter ihnen insbesondere Willard Van Quine von Harvard und Charles W. Morris aus Chicago. Da sich in den Jahren danach an dieser Deutschen Univ. der Nationalsozialismus zunehmend ausbreitete und die liberalen Strömungen unterdrückte, nahm er 1936 einen Ruf an die University of Chicago an und erhielt 1941 die Staatsbürgerschaft der USA. In Chicago gab er, nach dem durch den Krieg bedingten Ende der Zeitschrift "Erkenntnis", zusammen mit Morris und Neurath die Serie Internationa [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Bonnie & Clyde "Wanted" poster issued two days before fatal Louisiana ambush

      Washington, DC, May 21, 1934. 8" x 8". "Vintage 1934 double-sided "Wanted" poster of Bonnie Parker (1910-1934) and Clyde Barrow (1909-1934) designed to be distributed throughout the United States via mail service. Cream colored stock paper measuring 8" x 8" printed recto with photos, names, aliases, physical descriptions, and family members of Bonnie and Clyde. Integral address leaf verso left with "Division of Investigation, U.S. Department of Justice" return address and list of Special Agent addresses and telephone extensions verso right. In near fine condition with light overall toning and minor edge browning particularly to lower right corner.The "Wanted" poster, identification order no. 1227, was issued by J. Edgar Hoover, Director of the Division of Investigation, U.S. Department of Justice on May 21, 1934, just two days before Bonnie and Clyde were killed in a police ambush in Louisiana. The official charge was theft of a motor vehicle, although Bonnie and Clyde were "also wanted in connection with assault and [the] murder of officers". The stolen car precipitating this "Wanted" poster, a Ford V-8 coupe taken from Effingham, Illinois around September 1932, was like the one the couple were later killed in, the so-called "Death Car" perforated with over 150 rounds of bullets."Clyde Champion Barrow and Bonnie Parker constantly travel together and extreme caution must be exercised", the poster instructed. If there was any doubt as to Bonnie and Clyde's identities, they could be recognized by bullet and burn wound scars sustained during the pair's slew of assaults, kidnappings, robberies, prison breaks, and murders during the last two years. The couple was gunned down by a handful of Texas and Louisiana lawmen the morning of May 23, 1934. The posse had been tracking the Barrow gang since May 21st, the day this poster was issued.A sensational piece of crime memorabilia!"

It shows the breaking-up of two worlds, one pagan and one protestant, and hints at the possibility of some future reintegration. The author is a Dutch South African, whose father fought against the English in the Boer War. His insight and his sympathies would in any case be remarkable, but are most striking in one who was born and bred on the veld.'' Fore-edges of last few pages a little spotted, otherwise fine in the very scarce, very good indeed, slightly marked, dustwrapper, by Anthony Butts, which has a short tear and crease at the top edge of upper panel.

Véritable manuel d'introduction à la criminalistique voué au grand publique, l'auteur aborde les technicités qu'implique l'analyse des empreintes et des traces, la démonstration des preuves d'identité, et surtout de sa grande spécialité, la graphologie.Locard nous relate des techniques qu'il a pu utiliser lors de l'affaire Dreyfus, qui l'opposa à Bertillon, autre grand criminologue, inventeur des photos d'identification de face et de profile. Dans cet ouvrage rare et précieux, Locard fourni au lecteur les techniques qu'il a lui même développé avec lesquels il a enrichi les capacités d'enquetes de la police judiciaire.L'ouvrage est completé de 48 planches illustrant ces divers méthodes et les obstacles auxquels elles sont confrontés. Véritable immersion dans le monde du "milieu" parisien des Années Folles, Locard nous présente de nombreuses planches d'art Apache, les bandes organisées sevissant à l'époque dans les faubourgs, et les tatouages des prisoniers, lourd en symbolisme et codes de la rue. Les planches présentent aussi les diverses manières d'identifier un suspect, de prouver le vrai du faux, de reconnaitre les codes et manières d'effraction des cambrioleurs.

        The Way of All Flesh.

      London: Collins,, 1934. Octavo. Original purple cloth, titles to spine and front cover in gilt, green and white patterned endpapers. Wood engravings to text by John Farleigh. Spine faded, rear hinge partly cracked but text block sound. A very good copy. Association copy, inscribed by A. A. Milne to his son Christopher on the title page, "For Moon, with love from Blue. Christmas 1940". At the time this copy was inscribed, Christopher, having completed his first year at Cambridge before deciding to join the Royal Engineers, was awaiting his call-up papers at the Milne's home in Cotchford (his parents had left London permanently earlier in 1940). He had been due to commence training in November 1940, but had failed the medical examination due to a mistake by the medical board; this was subsequently rectified, but he had to wait until the following February to join his battalion. Christopher was at this point still extremely close to his father, "and would remain so throughout the war, though for several years separated by many hundreds of miles". This book was of special significance to Milne, who considered The Way of All Flesh "the best novel in the English language"; it was first published in 1903, and this is a later edition. Milne explained his son's nickname in his autobiography: "One of us thought of Robin, the other of Christopher; names wasted on him who called himself Billy Moon as soon as he could talk, and has been Moon to his family and friends ever since" (Milne, It's Too Late Now). Christopher eventually outgrew the nickname "Billy", though his father continued to call him "Moon"; Milne was nicknamed "Blue" on account of his eyes, "the bluest eyes I have ever seen" recalled Nancy Spain.

      [Alaska, 1934. 169 photographs, most 2 x 3 inches, with a few larger prints, plus several newspaper clippings. Oblong folio. Original brown leather album, with custom embossed image of naval ship two button snaps at fore- edge, tied with a leather strap at gutter margin. Light soiling to covers, small tear around one snap fastening. Photos in corner mounts on black card stock. Minor fading and light staining to a few images. Very good. A substantial collection of lively snapshots taken by a crew member, most likely an officer, of the United States Coast Guard Cutter Northland during an annual Arctic cruise to Point Barrow, Alaska, in 1934. The Northland was a gunboat specially designed for Arctic waters and the last cruising cutter for the Coast Guard equipped with a sailing rig. From 1929 to 1938, the boat patrolled the Bering Sea gathering military intelligence, carrying mail, enforcing the law, transporting teachers to remote areas, conducting medical service, and surveying coastlines. The album documents the Northland's 1934 expedition from Seattle via the Inside Passage, with stops on the Aleutian Islands, Nome, Elim village (Norton Bay, Bering Sea), King Island, St. Lawrence Island (both in the Bering Sea), and Teller (on the Alaskan coast of the Bering Strait). It includes views of the Northland near a pier in Seattle (captioned "We Say goodbye", and on the verso: "Your Dad unwittingly got into this one, see if you can pick him out"), a photo of the crew members list; views of the Inside Passage (some with captions on the verso, such as, "A narrow turn on Wrangel Narrows... Only a scant few feet separate the vessel from land. This picture was taken from the crow's nest. The Carpenter Mr. Dough took it with his camera…," and, "Swanson's Bay on the way up in the Inland Passage. A beautiful spot. Hope that you and Chickie may some day come here"). The album further contains images of Dutch Harbor and Mount Ballyhoo on Unalaska Island, including shots of crew members in walrus skin boats and camping on the tundra, a trout pond, Mount Pyramid, and ageneral view of Unalaska village. As the voyage progesses, the images depict the icefields near Nome, two street views of Nome (with the crew members posing in front of the office of the "Nome Daily Nugget" newspaper), several views of Elim village (including native houses, public school, portraits of the locals and an Eskimo boy), houses on a cliff on the "King Island, North Bering Sea," "Landing Rock, King Island," "Savoonga, St. Lawrence Is.," "Landing at Savoonga," and several views of Teller (main street, "Mr. & Mrs. Whaley" swimming, and a "Moving Picture camp near Teller"). There are also a number of photos of the Northland's bridge, wardroom, radio room, and deck, a view crow's nest, scenes of setting the mainsail and firing the deck guns during a 4th of July celebration, as well as portraits of some officers and crew, including Lieutenants Maude, Saranson, Morrel, and Edwards, Dr. Bingman, ensign Olsen. In two photos, the sailors experience the night life in Unalaska (captioned on verso: "I tried to photograph a native orchestra, but the navy wanted its picture," and "Scene in Unalaska, saloon"), and in another a crew member gold pans in Nome. The clippings from the "Nome Daily Nugget" at rear provide some information about a project to establish a two-way radio communication between the Northland and the camp of Admiral Richard Byrd in Little America (near the South Pole). Overall a very interesting historically important album showing remote settlements in Alaska and the Bering Sea.

        Seven Gothic Tales [Out of Africa]

      London: Putnam, 1934. First Impression. Hardcover. Fine. The uncommon First British Edition of Isak Dinesen's first book. Thick 8vo: [6],522pp, with full-color frontispiece (repeating dust jacket design) by Rex Whistler. Publisher's cinnamon colored cloth, spine lettered in gilt; illustrated dust jacket, priced 7s / 6d. About Fine (spine ends bumped, top edge slightly dust soiled); about Fine jacket (spine panel lightly toned). A scarce survival. Blixen's first book, published first in the United States under the pseudonym Isak Dinesen. These intricate and imaginative tales, all set in the nineteenth century, won wide acclaim in America and soon appeared in this edition in Britain and then in Denmark (as Syv fantastiske fortællinger). "Since her pseudonym was quickly penetrated, she published under her own name in every country, except the United States, where 'Isak Dinesen' swiftly became a valuable brand. Among the main stylistic influences on Blixen's tales can be counted the English gothic novel, German Romanticism, Boccacio's Decameron, and The Arabian Nights. When asked why she set her tales over a hundred years in the past, Blixen responded that the past could be more easily recompounded in her imagination, and she would not be forced to resort to realism.
