        Mein welt bild

      Amsterdam, Querido Verlag 1934 - Grand in-8° broché, 269 pages. Couverture un peu fanée avec des striures au dos. 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. .

        The Postman Always Rings Twice

      Alfred A. Knopf, New York 1934 - First edition. Boards are slightly soiled and near fine, with a supplied proof dustwrapper which came directly from the estate of the artist Arthur Hawkins, Jr. The jacket has been folded with a crease at the spine, Knopf's small Borzoi logo has been cut away from the rear panel (possibly for another design by Hawkins), and Hawkins has written the date "1933" on the front flap, although the book wasn't released until 1934. However the jacket is exceptionally bright and otherwise fine, and about 1/4" taller than the finished version, to which we have compared it (although otherwise identical to it). The jacket was unsigned by Hawkins, unlike most of his work, but is credited to him in Heller and Chwast's seminal study of jacket design, *Jackets Required* -- the survival of this proof in his estate seems to confirm their research. A milestone of hardboiled literature that was the basis for the classic 1946 film featuring Lana Turner and John Garfield (as well as at least three other versions). *Haycraft-Queen Cornerstone.* This proof jacket is likely unique.

        Faust. Der Tragödie erster Teil.

      N.p.: Mimeograph typescript, 1934. 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. . 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.

        Letter from Ardengo Soffici to Mino Maccari

      1934 - L.A.S. addressed to Mino Maccari. Poggio a Caiano, April 28, 1934. 2 pp. front and back. (15x19 cm). Perfect condition. The roots of Arengo Soffici as a writer and poet are builded during the seven years of his stay in Paris, where he works as an illustrator on important magazines such as L'Assiette au Beurre. Here he has the opportunity to meet artists such as Guillaume Apollinaire, Pablo Picasso and Max Jacob, and attend the lively world around the La plume magazine. For the latter and for the 'Europe artiste magazine, he writes numerous articles. Also important are the meetings with Italian artists and writers, such as Giovanni Vailati, Emilio Notte, Mario Calderoni and Giovanni Papini, Giuseppe Prezzolini, with who he will make a strong friendship, despite the difference of personality. He was one of the principal collaborators of "Voce" and founded (in 1913) with Papini the interventionist magazine "Lacerba". He was also a collaborator of the Popolo d'Italia, and he was a committed fascist. He firstly worked as a critic of art, meant to demolish the avant-garde and to highlight some of the greatest personalities of French Impressionism and Post-Impressionism. Among the masters of Paris, Cézanne's teaching is for Soffici the most important and fruitful one, so as to be re-emerged from time to time in his best paintings. The object may be located and shipped from Italy, France or UK. L.A.S. indirizzata a Mino Maccari. Poggio a Caiano, 28 aprile 1934. 2 pp. fronte e retro. (15x19 cm). Perfetto stato. Le radici di scrittore e di poeta di Arengo Soffici si formano durante i sette anni di permanenza a Parigi, dove lavora come illustratore su riviste importanti come L'Assiette au Beurre; (malpagato, conduce una vita di stenti) e ha la possibilità di incontrare artisti come Guillaume Apollinaire, Pablo Picasso e Max Jacob, e frequentare il mondo vivace che si era formato intorno alla rivista La plume. Per quest'ultima e per L'Europe artiste scrive numerosi articoli. Importanti anche gli incontri con artisti e scrittori italiani, come Giovanni Vailati, Emilio Notte, Mario Calderoni e Giovanni Papini, Giuseppe Prezzolini, con il quale stringerà, al ritorno in Italia, una forte amicizia, nonostante la diversità di carattere. Fu tra i principali collaboratori della Voce e fondò (1913) con Papini, Lacerba, una rivista interventista; fu collaboratore del Popolo d'Italia, e convinto sostenitore del fascismo; nel 1939 fu nominato accademico d'Italia. La sua prima attività fu di critico d'arte, inteso a demolire le avanguardie e a valorizzare alcune fra le maggiori personalità dell'impressionismo e postimpressionismo francese, con una violenza polemica simile a quella, in campo filosofico-letterario, di Papini. E, come Papini, Soffici prima passò e sperimentò le varie esperienze d'avanguardia, dal futurismo al cubismo, facendosene via via acceso banditore, per poi ripiegare, nel primo dopoguerra, su quelle posizioni tradizionali di cui, in fondo, il suo temperamento sanamente provinciale e il suo gusto arguto di toscano avevano sempre sentito la nostalgia. La produzione pittorica di Soffici corrisponde a quella singolare posizione, da lui assunta nel campo letterario e critico, di anticonformismo, mai drastico rispetto alla tradizione. Cézanne è, fra i maestri di Parigi, quello il cui insegnamento è stato per lui il più importante fecondo, tanto da riaffiorare di volta in volta nei suoi quadri migliori. L'oggetto potrebbe trovarsi ed essere spedito da Italia, Francia o Regno Unito. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        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&#146;atelier de Jean SAUDÉ. Tir. limité à 131 ex. Celui-ci sur vélin de Rives au filigrane de la Vierge. CARTERET, IV, 187 : &#148; Une des meilleures illustrations de l&#146;artiste. elle est très cotée &#148;. 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&#146;une touchante sincérité, ses expressions révèlent des humeurs, des sentiments et des émotions très divers devant les multiples fonctions dont on l&#146;a chargée. Si elle demeure sereine ou souriante quand la situation s&#146;y prête, elle ne cache pas davantage, en d&#146;autres circonstances, l&#146;accablement, la tristesse voire un certain abattement. « Il y a aussi un côté très délicat qu&#146;il importe de signaler, parce qu&#146;il est peut-être le moins connu, c&#146;est cette représentation de l&#146;enfance et de la sainteté où l&#146;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&#146;Armand Godoy. »(Pierre Mornand, in « Trente artistes du livre », 1945). Ces lithographies ont fait l&#146;objet d&#146;une exposition de l&#146;artiste au Salon d&#146;Automne (section livres) de 1930 (Dugnat & Sanchez). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

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]

      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.
