        Tarnschrift:] Warum nicht ein Musikinstrument? (= Rede vor dem Leipziger Gericht).

      No place or printer, [ca 1934]. - 16mo. 33, (3) pp. Illustrated original wrappers. Extremely rare German anti-fascist "Tarnschrift" (a clandestine pamphlet or "camouflaged book"), here masquerading as a brochure advertizing an accordeon: in fact, it contains the closing address delivered by the Bulgarian communist Dimitrov on 16 December 1933 before the Leipzig court, where he was on trial for alleged complicity in the Reichstag fire. Also includes two introductory essays by Wilhelm Pieck and D. Manuilski. During the trial, Dimitrov famously seized the opportunity to defend communism, refused counsel and defended himself against his Nazi accusers, primarily Hermann Göring. Dimitrov's calm conduct of his defence and the accusations he directed at his prosecutors won him world renown, while the intended show trial turned out a debacle for the National Socialists in their first year of power. - Perfectly preserved. Gittig, Tarnschriften 1933-1945 (1996) 0064. Cf. Dt. Exilarchiv 1085f. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Murder on the Orient Express.

      London: The Crime Club, W. Collins Sons and Co., 1934.. First edition. Octavo, pp.254; [2], advertisements. Elegantly bound in recent deep red oasis morocco with raised bands and gilt titles and extra gilt to spine, gilt border to boards Some spotting and thumbing within, some leaves folded at corners, externally fine. A presentable and inexpensive copy of this legendary crime novel. One of the greatest locked-room mysteries, with one of the most original solutions. A crowning point in Christie's career, and probably her most high profile title, helped to that prominence by the success of the 1974 film of the same name, featuring among its cast stage and screen luminaries such as Albert Finney, Lauren Bacall, Sean Connery, Anthony Perkins, John Gielgud, and Ingrid Bergman, the last of whom won an Oscar for her performance in the film.

"In 1934, Victor Constant Kitchen published a book called "I Was A Pagan", describing his discovery of the Oxford Group and the way it had changed his life. This little volume is one of the most useful of the works which were written during that period, for those who wish to obtain detailed knowledge about the group's central beliefs and practices, including such things as house parties, confession, moral inventory, quiet time, and guidance. There are also excellent descriptions of some of the spiritual experiences which the group's members had but is equally important in terms of understanding the early Alcoholics Anonymous movement, and what the A.A. people learned from the Oxford Group."

He recalls: "Dr. Paul Wolff had skills which I found myself envying. Without any optical aid from the Leica viewfinder in the new (Telyt) reflex housing, he could dissect the surroundings with his naked eye in the search for a suitable subject and position. He invariably picked out the perfect spot for taking the picture with the focal length he had already selected". 63pps text in German, spotting to next two, followed by those glorious prints. .

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1934 - 1934 Original Hardback Wisden

      Hi, This lot is a 1934 Original Hardback Wisden in OK Condition. This Wisden is a hard one to find but this one is quite worn to the boards (most are 33-36) , some fading to the gilts and marks to the boards, creases to the spine cloth and a dark page block. Marks to rear board are more heavy. Internally the hinges are strong but some webbing can be seen to the front hinge, it is a bit wonky. Nice photoplate. Contains the bodyline controversy.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1934 - 1934 Original Hardback Wisden, Ex library

      Hi, We recently purchased the Wisdens from the Bolton Library and were pleasently surprised by their condition, they are Ex-Library and have stamps etc to them but they are priced very low so a great way to buy a cheap hardback that may be better than you think. This lot is a 1934 Original Hardback Wisden in Good+ Condition, This Wisden is a very good book for an ex library, 1933-37 are never great but the gilts are better than most on this book. The boards are a touch dark but the hinges are good. Photoplate is excellent. The library factor are : Circle to the spine cloth, stamp to pastedown and a couple of pages and a white square fixed to the last page. Not too bad. Nicely priced.

        Interessante carteggio, composto da cinque lunghe lettere dattiloscritte firmate, tutte complete di busta con indirizzo pure autografo e tutte indirizzate all'amica di famiglia Virginia Bellini, a Parma. Le lettere, ciascuna di due pagine in-4 (tranne una di una sola pagina nello stesso formato), sono rispettivamente del 5 gennaio 928, 2 marzo 931, 14 genn. 932, 27 sett. 933 e del XXII Novembre XXII (1934). Lo scrittore lamenta 'la mia solita vita disordinata e occupatissima', che gli impedisce d'essere epistolografo pi_ costante; l'amica gli chiede a un certo punto un aiuto per far trasferire una persona a Parma, ma lui scrive: 'mi duole davvero, cara Virginia, di non poterle essere utile; ma sono tempi nei quali _ impossibile riuscir utile anche a s_ stessi'. Bella l'ultima lettera, consolatoria per la morte del padre della corrispondente: 'so bene che queste considerazioni non attenuano affatto il dolore di una simile perdita, poich_, dove parla il cuore, il ragionamento non ha pi_ nessuna forza'

        Negro anthology.- First edition, signed by Nancy Cunard, dedicated to the Cuban poet and communist activist Nicolas Guillen.

      Londres, Nancy Cunard at Wishart & co, 15 février 1934 - 31,5 x 25,5 cm, 855 p., 385 ill. Original binding, publisher's black cloth, typographic title and Black Belt map printed in red. First edition, limited to 1,000 copies (a significant number of which were destroyed during the London Blitz. Autograph dedication signed by Nancy Cunard (1902- 1989). A poet, editor, activist, journalist, anti-conformist, Nancy Cunard (1896-1965) is closely linked to the 20th century avant-guarde movements, notably the Surrealists. In 1928,in the wake of her relationship with Aragon, Nancy Cunard shares her life with the African American pianist Henry Crowder, who raises her awareness to the black cause. The trauma of her mother, Lady Cunard's insulting racism is certainly a catalyst in Nancy's antiracist and anticolonialist commitments.From 1931 to 1934, through her writings, her contacts, her travels, she gathers the materials and drafts her manifesto project. The 155 contributors to the Negro Anthology (250 articles) are activists, journalists, artists, academics, African Americans, West Indians, Latin Americans, Americans, Europeans, among which Alain Locke, Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston, Th. Dreiser, Louis Armstrong, Ezra Pound, William Carlos William, G. Antheil, J. Banting, K. Macpherson N. Guillen, J. Roumain, Samuel Beckett (translator of the French Surrealists' contributions), R. Crevel, B. Péret, G. Sadoul, L.P. Quint, G. Michelet, G. Padmore, etc. An encyclopaedic literary, artistic and musical anthology as well as a wide documentary survey, Negro is the first overview which mixes popular culture, sociology, politics, history, art history, and includes articles, archives, press excerpts, music scores, testimonies.In a very modern editorial choice, which superimposes unpublished texts, compilations, raw documents and a very rich and extensive commented photographic iconography, the book is divided into seven geographic and thematic sections: America, Negro stars, Music (America, creole, West Indies, Africa), Poetry (by Negro poets, West Indian poetry, Poetry by white poets on negro themes), West Indies and South America (Jamaica, Haïti, Cuba, Barbados, Trinidad, Grenada, Virgin Islands, Guadeloupe, British Guiana, Brazil Uruguay), Europe, Africa. The work pertains to the aesthetics of African cultures with an important chapter "Negro sculpture and Ethnology" (90 photographs,12 plates: great museums and private collections (P.Guillaume, F.Fénéon, Ch. Ratton, Moffat) but its main motive lies on the denunciation of the hypocrisy and racist violence of Western and colonial societies. The origin of our copy is highly symbolic. The dedicacee,Cuban poet and communist activist Nicolas Guillen (1902-1989) unveiled the African heart of Havana to Nancy Cunard in July 1932 during her exploratory mission. Her poems, translated in English by Langston Hughes are part of Negro. But Guillen also shares with Nancy Cunard his commitment with the Spanish Republicans. She publishes her poems in "The poets of the world defend the Spanish people" (n°6, 1938). The date of the dedicace (August 1937) coincides with the arrival of Guillen in Paris in order to participate in the second International Congress of writers for the defence of culture. Attesting to the transnational and manifold antiracist and anticolonialist fights of the thirties, does not reduce Negro Anthology to a mere outdated atlas of negro suffering or to an archeology of negritude. The abolition of racial prejudice is still a current issue. The lesson in tolerance, the scope of Nancy Cunard's manifesto are intact, and so is its urgency. A pioneer in its committed conception, the originality and scope of the collected contributions, and in its great formal modernity, Negro Anthology is one of the exceptional and emblematic books of the 20th century and its cultural revolutions. Here, the recognition and importance of African culture appear for the first time in all their aspects. Beautiful copy, with an established origin, whose rarity and q [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
