      [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.

      Peiyang Press. (circa1934)., [Peiping]. - Coloured folding plan of Peking with original envelope. 60 x 50cm. A few neat repairs at folds, two panels evenly browned on reverse. A very good copy of a scarce pictorial plan with its envelope. This delightful and scarce pictorial map of Peking with landmarks and streets in romanised Chinese, with occasional Chinese characters, is surprisingly scarce. Although apparently issued in several editions in the 1920s and 30s, it appears relatively infrequently on the market. The divisions of the Legation District are indicated by their flags - this edition shows the German Legation by use of the black, white and red bands of the German flag. This flag which was no longer used after 1935 helps date this edition. Other landmarks and attractions shown included theatres, foreign shopping area adjacent to the legations quarter, Liu Li Chang Curio District, the racecourse, the many city gates etc.

        Bud 2nd: A Collection of Literary Stories in Creative Writing [cover title]: Bud The Second 1934

      Phillips Russell's Class, [Chapel Hill] 1934 - Quarto. Quarter canvas and blue card wrappers with title either hand-inked or dittoed on the front wrap. 40 mimeographed leaves printed rectos only. A trifle age-toned, else very near fine. Frontispiece portrait of Russell by Robert C. Ruark. Stories and poems by members of Phillips Russell's English class at the University of North Carolina. Russell seems to have infected his students with the hard-boiled style of the mid-1930s, and among the stories are included a very hard-boiled story by Ruark: "Ashes to Ashes" (first line: "Tommy's dead."), seemingly autobiographical, about a brilliant but pugnacious student who graduates Phi Beta Kappa from Duke, but runs off to the merchant marine and has bloodthirsty adventures, until he marries and has the (figurative) life sucked out of him by his wife. Ruark would have been 18 or 19 at the time of publication. Phillips Russell was an influential English and Journalism teacher at UNC, and published many books, mostly biographies and other non-fiction. Ruark excelled at both journalism and fiction, and is particularly well-known for his writing on Africa and hunting. This is certainly one of his first published works. *OCLC* locates a single run of this annual compilation (1933-1953), not surprisingly at the University of North Carolina. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

This was the expedition on which Irvine's ice axe was found, having lain there since Mallory and Irvine perished near the summit.

        ONE OF THE NEW ERA TEXTBOOKS FOR YOUNG ARCHITECTS] Elementy arkhitekturno-prostranstvennoi kompozitsii [i.e. Elements of Architectural and Spatial Composition]

      - Moscow; Leningrad: Gosstroiizdat, 1934. 172 pp.: ill., 5 ill. 29,5x21,5 cm. In publisher's cloth with red lettering. General soiling, title page is toned, owner's signature on the front board and title page. First edition. One of 4000 copies. Illustrated throughout with numerous black and white drawings and photographs. The main subject of this textbook is a series of aspects of spatial composition in architecture. The author based this material on his own 10 year experience of teaching at Moscow architecture university first year students basics of composition (the discipline was called "Space"). First this discipline appeared in VKHUTEIN in 1923 'as a result of a long fight at the architecture department between different views on architectural method'. The author used materials from that discipline, 'the most valuable parts'. In general the book is dedicated to simply what resources and tools to use and how an architect can operate them. It became important not to lose touch with the reality, but also he stated "you can't design and build only based on studies of spatial composition (it becomes formalism), but you can't manage without it". This textbook does not renounce the experience and heritage of constructivism of the 1920s but he strongly against formalism in the future. This textbook laid grounds for future architects of 1930s and 1940s. The book is illustrated throughout, and the most impressive are combinations of old and new architecture on one page or a turn, like Parthenon frieze and The Dnieper Hydroelectric Station (designed by constructivist architects Viktor Vesnin and Nikolai Kolli), or Palazzo Valmarana and Le Corbusier's house, or The Admiralty building in St. Petersburg and The Derzhprom building in Kharkiv, or Novgorod cathedral and Konstantin Melnikov's club in Moscow. The book's application is also worth attention: it includes tasks for students and examples of their solutions (practical work for first year students of "Space" discipline at VKHUTEIN 1923-1933). The most interesting part are photographs of architectural models which are basically exemplary task solutions (see photos). Vladimir Fedorovich Krinsky (1890-1971) was one of the prominent representatives of the architectural rationalism (one of the main architectural groups in 1920s-30s). He was a professor at VKHUTEMAS in 1920s and a head of the United workshop ('Obmas') with Ladovsky and Dokuchaev. During his work at VKHUTEMAS he made a significant contribution to improving the methods of developing spatial thinking among future architects. He himself experimented a lot with the volume, color and texture of the material, revealing the artistic possibilities of these means of architectural expressiveness and developing the most effective methods of teaching. This experience was summed up in this book (together with I.V. Lamtsov and M.A. Turkus) approved for the architectural universities. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Les positions politiques prises par Einstein sont marquées par ses opinions socialistes et pacifistes, relativisant ces dernières parfois, par exemple en déconseillant l'objection de conscience à un jeune Européen lui ayant écrit pendant les années 1930, « pour la sauvegarde de son pays et de la civilisation ». En 1913, il est cosignataire d'une pétition pour la paix que trois autres savants allemands acceptent de signer. Einstein éprouve une forte antipathie vis-à-vis des institutions militaires, publiant dès 1934 dans ce livre « La pire des institutions grégaires se prénomme l'armée. Je la hais. Si un homme peut éprouver quelque plaisir à défiler en rang aux sons d'une musique, je méprise cet homme. Il ne mérite pas un cerveau humain puisqu'une moelle épinière le satisfait. Nous devrions faire disparaître le plus rapidement possible ce cancer de la civilisation » [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        The Pastimes of Aleck Maury

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons. 1934. First. First English edition, published in the U.S. as Aleck Maury, Sportsman.. Near fine in a soiled, good dustwrapper with several modest chips and tears. The author's most important and celebrated novel, about a Southerner who is both a scholar and a sportsman, based on the life of her father. As might be inferred from the subject, interest in the novel in England was bound to be minimal, and the first printing there was almost certainly miniscule. Exceptionally uncommon in the English edition. .
