        Les Litanies de la Vierge.

      Paris, Blaizot et Fils. 1934 - Grand in-4° en ff, 306pp, couverture rempliée, chemise, étui couverts de papier or. Illustré par Mariette LYDIS de 48 lithographies h.t. enluminées dans l’atelier de Jean SAUDÉ. Tir. limité à 131 ex. Celui-ci sur vélin de Rives au filigrane de la Vierge. CARTERET, IV, 187 : ” Une des meilleures illustrations de l’artiste. elle est très cotée ”. Étonnante interprétation de Mariette Lydis qui nous présente ici une Vierge à la fois inattendue et fort proche, parfois libérée de tout souci de pieuse représentation. D’une touchante sincérité, ses expressions révèlent des humeurs, des sentiments et des émotions très divers devant les multiples fonctions dont on l’a chargée. Si elle demeure sereine ou souriante quand la situation s’y prête, elle ne cache pas davantage, en d’autres circonstances, l’accablement, la tristesse voire un certain abattement. « Il y a aussi un côté très délicat qu’il importe de signaler, parce qu’il est peut-être le moins connu, c’est cette représentation de l’enfance et de la sainteté où l’artiste a déployé le charme et la profonde subtilité de son talent. Nous citerons dans ce genre le Petit Jésus, de Joseph Delteil, et les Litanies de la Vierge, d’Armand Godoy. »(Pierre Mornand, in « Trente artistes du livre », 1945). Ces lithographies ont fait l’objet d’une exposition de l’artiste au Salon d’Automne (section livres) de 1930 (Dugnat & Sanchez). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Black textured cloth over stiff paper boards with "Photo Album" stamped in silver on the front board.

Very good album with chips, tears, and spotting on the front board with very good photographs with some edgewear.A photo album kept by the Chiodi family of Baltimore between 1934 and 1946. The photographs are not strictly in chronological order but show the family working, at their family home, and on vacation through the mid-1930s and early 1940s. The album begins with a trip to Jamestown, North Dakota, where they had lived before relocating to Baltimore, with photos of family friends on their front porch, children in their Sunday best, and workers on the Northern Pacific Railroad. Following this there are photos of a sheep ranch, a farm in Edmond, North Dakota, and Jamestown State Hospital. Friends and family are seen throughout the album in a variety of portraits, candids, and photo strips. They visited upstate New York and Niagara Falls, went camping and hiking, and enjoyed leisurely boating. As the war began the photos start showing more men in uniform including a Navy seaman and a man, Ernest Chiodi, in an Army uniform who is later mentioned in a newspaper clipping as dying in Germany in 1944. "A member of Company I 395th Infantry, 99th Division, 'Ernie' proved himself one of the highest caliber servicemen."A nice collection of family photos including travel and war related images. .

        The Pastimes of Aleck Maury

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1934 - 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        TROPIC OF CANCER.

      Paris:: Obelisk Press,. 1934.. First edition. One of only 1,000 copies printed. Miller's autobiographical novel -- banned in the U.S. and UK for decades after its publication -- has been described as "notorious for its candid sexuality" and responsible for the "free speech that we now take for granted in literature." The 1961 U.S. publication by Grove Press led to obscenity trials that tested American laws on pornography before it was finally declared "non-obscene" in 1964. Written between 1930 and 1934 during his "nomadic life" in Paris, Miller's TROPIC OF CANCER was titled as such because, by his own account, ". . . to me cancer symbolizes the disease of civilization, the endpoint of the wrong path, the necessity to change course radically, to start completely over from scratch." On many best-of lists, including Time Magazine's 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to 2005 and The Modern Library's list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century, where it is ranked 50th. A near fine copy with light soiling and minute fraying to top of spine but remarkably with the yapped (over-hanging) covers barely frayed at all. Very scarce in this nice condition.

        Faust. Der Tragödie erster Teil.

      Mimeograph typescript, N.p. 1934 - 27 cm; [2], 169, [1], pages, dedication leaf, and original pencil and chalk title leaf with portrait of a grinning Mephistopheles, by Michel Fingesten (Michl Finkelstein), signed in pencil, protected by glassine leaf. Dedication "für HANS ARNOLD geschreiben, Weihnachten 1934," signed in ink by Grete Scholz. Text mimeographed typescript on Crown Van Gelder. Bound in half vellum over buckram cloth-covered boards, with buckram endleaves. Title stamped in gilt letters on vellum panel of top board. Upper board somewhat bowed, but book is effectively pristine. The successful German-Jewish banker Hans Arnold made his home in Berlin a salon for artists, musicians, and intellectuals (the structure now houses the American Academy in Berlin). As a patron of the arts, Arnold merited this hand-made gift, dedicated for Christmas 1934, of a Goethe's Faust, one of an unspecified (but certainly tiny) number of mimeographed copies printed on Crown Van Gelder watermarked paper and accompanied by an original drawing by the notable illustrator Michel Fingesten. The gift dedication is signed by Grete Scholz (d. 1937), wife of the painter Fritz-Karl Scholz-Wetterhof (d. 1945?). (Fingesten's ex-libris for Grete Scholz is extant.) Michel Fingesten (1884-1943), was a peripatetic artist known primarily for illustrated bookplates, who produced a rich body of work in the course of his agitated life. An Italian Jew, he was held in the concentration camp at Ferramonti for three years until its liberation in 1943. He died soon after a result of wounds sustained in a car accident. This volume is an artifact of the vibrant artistic and intellectual life that flourished in Germany and Mitteleurop at the cusp of Fascist domination in the 1930s. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Appointment in Samarra [First State]

      New York: Harcourt, Brace, 1934. First Edition, as stated. Hardcover. Fine/Very Good. First Edition, so stated, with the publisher's errata slip tipped tipped in between the copyright and dedication pages, denoting the first state. 8vo: [6],302pp. Publisher's black cloth, spine lettered in gold, top edge stained yellow; second-state pictorial dust jacket (with reviews on back panel), correctly priced $2.50. Fine, square and tight (positively unread), pages immaculate; in a Very Good, completely unrestored jacket, marred chiefly by a v-shaped, one-inch loss to head of the spine, affecting the letters 'ntment' and 'rra;' otherwise clean and vibrant. The author's seminal first novel, easily his most desirable and scarcest work. Bruccoli A2.1.a. Modern Library 100, 22. Time 100. "O'Hara did for fictional Gibbsville, Pennsylvania, what Faulkner did for Yoknapatawpha County, Mississippi: surveyed its social life and drew its psychic outlines. But he did it in utterly worldly terms, without Faulkner's taste for mythic inference or the basso profundo of his prose. Julian English is a man who squanders what fate gave him. He lives on the right side of the tracks, with a country club membership and a wife who loves him. His decline and fall, over the course of just 72 hours around Christmas, is a matter of too much spending, too much liquor and a couple of reckless gestures. . . . That his calamity is petty and preventable only makes it more powerful." Time 100 Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        Dojmy z SSSR [Impressions of the USSR]

      Brno: Exod, 1934. Second edition. Paperback. Very good. SIGNED. 165pp. Octavo [22.5 cm] in French wraps. Light edgewear to wraps; crease to spine; interior is unmarked. Illustrated with 15 woodcuts by the author, each protected by a laid-in sheet of glassine. Signed by Bochorakova-Dittrichova in pencil on limitation page and handnumbered 136 of an edition of 200 copies.An illustrated account of the author's travels to Leningrad, St. Petersburg, Moskow, Kharkiv, and Kiev. Bochorakova-Dittrichova also devotes a chapter each to a collective farm and the Dnieper Hydroelectric Station.Helena Bochorakova-Dittrichova (1894-1980) was the first female wordless novelist and the only woman to work in this medium during its heyday. She was born in the Moravian region of what is now the Czech Republic and spent most of her life in Brno, the Moravian capital. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and in 1923 received a government scholarship to study printmaking in Paris. Bochorakova-Dittrichova's unpublished wordless novel Malirka Na Cestach [The Artist on Her Journey] recounts this period in her life. In Paris, she first encountered the wordless novels of Flemish artist Frans Masereel, the originator of the form, and was inspired to create her own. Over the course of her long career, Bochorakova-Dittrichova published several wordless novels, along with travelogues and historical works. She also worked as a printmaker and illustrator, and was highly regarded in her native land, though largely unknown elsewhere. This changed in 2014, when the National Museum of Women in the Arts held an exhibition of her work entitled "The First Woman Graphic Novelist: Helena Bochorakova-Dittrichova," and this important artist finally began to gain global recognition. Her work, however, is still not widely available.

        La Società Anonima Stefano Pittaluga presenta la Produzione 1934 – 35 – XIII

      Industrie Grafiche Nicola Moneta,, Milano, 1934 - 32,5×23,5 cm; (76) pp. Legatura editoriale in piena tela con titolo impresso in amaranto su fascetta al piatto anteriore (un leggero alone di polvere). All’interno esemplare in ottime condizioni di conservazione. Timbro ed autografo del direttore del Cinema Imperiale di Bologna (storico cinema bolognese che sorgeva nella centralissima Via Indipendenza) recentemente chiuso e smantellato. Prima ed unica rarissima edizione di questo catalogo dei film presentati dalla Società Anonima Stefano Pittaluga per la stagione 1934-1935. Magnifiche le tavole a colori che presentano i film, alcune anche a doppia pagina. Si dice nell’introduzione "La produzione che la S. A. Stefano Pittaluga presenta per la stagione 1934-35 anno XIII reca il segno della più alta distinzione: le Coppe Mussolini per i due migliori film, italiano e straniero, premio ambitissimo che tutte le Case del mondo si contesero alla Mostra Internazionale della II Biennale di Venezia. Le pagine della nostra odierna raccolta recano pure il segno di un’altra vittoria: la produzione europea dall’Inghilterra alla Francia, dalla Cecoslovacchia all’Italia, ha ormai superato, per qualità di soggetti e per virtù di tecnici, per autorità d’artisti e per abilità di fotografi, tutto quanto la grande America ha potuto presentare quest’anno ". La Società Anonima Stefano Pittaluga fu costituita su iniziativa di Stefano Pittaluga a Torino il 19 marzo del 1919. Stefano Pittaluga (Campomorone, in provincia di Genova, 2 febbraio 1887 – Roma, 5 aprile 1931) era figlio di un imprenditore genovese attivo nell’esercizio di sale cinematografiche. Personaggio dalla grande intuizione commerciale fu tra i sostenitori del cinema sonoro e arrivando a suggerire un piano nazionale per il sostegno e lo sviluppo dell’industria cinematografia italiana attraverso l’elargizione di sostegno statale. Già dal 1911 è noleggiatore di film, ottenendo l’esclusiva di alcune pellicole americane per il territorio della Liguria. Deciso ad allargare il suo giro d’affari decide di fondare la Società Anonima che già sul finire del 1919 si espande su tutto il territorio nazionale arrivando a contare 200 sale ad essa collegate. Dal 1924 iniziò anche la produzione di alcune pellicole, rilevando diversi stabilimenti di ditte fallite, come la Fert, la Rodolfi Film, l’Itala Film e la Cines e costituendo due nuove società denominate Fert-Pittaluga e Cines-Pittaluga. Nel 1926 aveva già sbaragliato tutti i concorrenti nella distribuzione sul territorio nazionale acquisendo l’ultimo di questi, la celebre Unione Cinematografica Italiana. Nel 1932 muore Stefano e la Società passa sotto la direzione di Mario Scolza e inizia un lento ma inesorabile declino che la portò, nel 1936 allo scioglimento. L’opera presenta diversi celebri titoli come: La signora di tutti di Max Ophuls con Isa Miranda, La vita amorosa di Casanova di René Barberis con Ivan Mosjoukine, Melodramma di Fritz Lang con Elsa Merlini, Seconda B di Goffredo Alessandrini con Sergio Tofano, Volga in fiamme di Venceslao Tourjanski, L’ebreo errante di Maurice Elevey con Conrad Veidt, Amore imperiale di Gaston Ravel con Pola Negri, Signora Paradiso di Enrico Guazzoni con Memo Benassi, Suss l’ebreo di Lothar Mendes con Conrad Veidt, La marcia di Rakorji di Gustav Frölich,Stefan Szekely, Paraninfo di Amleto Palermi con Angelo Musco, Il figlio del Carnevale di Alexander Wolkoff con Ivan Mosjoukine, La bella maledetta di e con Leni Riefenstahl, Notti moscovite di Alexis Granowski, Paradiso in fiore di Victor Saville, Vienna di Strauss di Alfred Hitchcock con Jessie Mattews, Il cappello a tre punte di Mario Camerini con Edoardo e Peppino De Filippo, Fedora di Louis Grasnier, L’uragano di V.Petroff, Febbre di vivere di George Cukor con Katharine Hepburn, John Barrymore, Chu Chin Chow di Walter Forde, Celiuskin – documentario U.R.S.S., Bella donna di Robert Milton con Conrad Veidt, Il figlio di Kong con Robert Armstrong, Notti di Pietroburgo di G.Rochal e V.Stroyeva, Dick Turpin,br

        Amelia Earhart writes a check to relative Bertha Liepsner. Encapsulated PSA/DNA.

      New York, March 30, 1934. 2.75" x 6.25". "PSA/DNA Encapsulated signed check. Graded EX- MT 6. Signed ""Amelia Earhart"", drawn on The Fifth Avenue Bank dated ""March 30, 1934"" and made payable to the ""Bertha C Liepsner"" for ""$90.00"", also written as ""Ninety 12/100"" Dollars. Measures 6.25"" x 2.75"", with saw tooth edging to left edge. Verso stamped and endorsed by ""Bertha C. Liepsner"", Cancellation holes touching the signature.Bertha Liepsner (aka maiden name of Bertha Challiss), was a cousin of Amelia Earhart, through the Otis/Challis line (lineage is available for view via the link at the bottom of the page). A lovely personal example of her signed checkEarhart's plane crash in 1937, just 3 years after writing this check and still remains shrouded in mystery. In an official report, the U.S. government concluded that the two seasoned flyers, unable to locate their destination of Howland Island, ran out of fuel, crashed into the water and sank. Earhart was declared legally dead on January 5, 1939. The question of why and where her plane went down, however, has never been put to rest. In the seven decades since Earhart's disappearance, a number of hypotheses have emerged, some with scientific evidence behind them and others based on more dubious claims. Some theorists, for instance, believe Earhart was actually a secret agent working for the U.S. government, pointing to her close friendship with Franklin D. Roosevelt and his wife, Eleanor. They suggest that the plane crashed after its pilots intentionally deviated from their course to spy on Japanese-occupied islands in the Pacific, or that Earhart and Noonan landed on one of them and were taken prisoner. Yet another theory holds that Earhart returned safely to the United States, changed her name and lived a long life in obscurity. And yet a more current theory believes that the legendary American pilot died as a castaway, not in a plane crash, with the skeleton of a castaway found on the island of Nikumaroro, Kiribati, in 1940 possibly belonging to Earhart. In August of 2016, the TIGHAR team revealed Earhart made more than 100 radio transmissions calling for help between July 2 and July 6 of 1937, which rules out the possibility of her plane crashing. Her plane had disappeared the morning of July 3. The airplane's radio would not have worked if the engine was not running...
