        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.

Dedication page; 'To The Oxford Group, That disciplined army of Life Changers who gave new meaning to my life and new direction to its purpose". The highly anticipated 1st printing release of 20,000 copies of this title in Jan., 1934, was sold out in 1 day, and a second printing was immediately ordered. (Feburary, 1934) Later in March, the American Edition would supply the bookstores published by Harper & Brothers. This true first printing is inscribed and signed on the FFEP, "To Jim Moore, from one "revolutionary" to another, Victor Kitchen, May 17, 1934. "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."

Benser was a Leica employee who had gone through the full technical training in Wetzlar and later spent many years traveling with the Leica Slide Show. 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. .

        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'

      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]

Tipped-in are two autograph letters from Lionel Lindsay to the Australian collector Harry Chaplin. Tipped-in also is an undated autograph letter by Keene himself with a sketch and a fragment of another autograph piece. First edition, and very scarce: only 130 copies were printed, all numbered and signed by the author. Folio, original quarter cloth, frontispiece portrait and 55 fine collotype plates, each with tissue guard. Aside from a little shelfwear this is a fine bright copy, uncut in the original binding with a slightly torn and stained dust-jacket.

Day, London, [1596]. Fifth edition. STC 11226. *The first edition of this famous book printed after the death of the author. Originally published in latin in 1559, the \i Book of Martyrs was an immediate best seller, and its influence was profound. In 1571 Convocation decreed that copies were to be placed in all cathedral churches and that the houses of archbishops, bishops, archdeacons and canons should all have copies. 'The lively style of the book, not to mention the gruesome illustrations, which first appeared in the English edition of 1563, was thus given an opportunity to influence - and prejudice -the minds of people of all classes of society, including those who could not otherwise have afforded it.' [\i Printing and the Mind of Man , 86]. This copy lacks all the preliminary leaves (the main title page, dedicatory epistles, etc.), the last few pages of text (1935-1949), the index, and two of the three woodcut inserts. Complete copies of early editions are rare, and even with the defects described above, this is a relatively complete and generally clean copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Kamerny teatr i ego khudozhniki, 1914-1934 [The Kamerny Theatre and Its Artists, 1914-1934]

      Izd. Vseros. teatral nogo obshchestva, Moscow 1934 - A celebration of Alexander Tairov's pathbreaking Kamerny Theatre in Moscow, featuring set and costume designs as well as scenes from the theatre's first 20 years. Profusely illustrated in both color and black and white, the book showcases each production of the Kamerny, founded by Alexander Tairov (1885-1950 ) and his wife, the actress Alisa Koonen (1889-1974).Tairov brought many non-Russian productions to the Kamerny, including works by Shakespeare, Bertolt Brecht, Eugene O'Neill, George Bernard Shaw, and Oscar Wilde. Tairov's productions were known for their magnificent set and costume designs, and he collaborated with some of the most acclaimed avant-garde artists of the day, including Alexandra Exter and Natalia Goncharova. Indeed, it's possible to see the evolution of 20th-century Russian art through the set and costume designs, which reflected Cubist, Constructivist, Rayonist, and even Art Deco influences. It was an exciting time in Soviet theatre; this era featured some of the greatest directors of the 20th century, such as Stanislavsky, Meyerhold, and Vakhtangov.The Kamerny was the scene of one of the most significant plays of the Soviet theatre, according to Nick Worrall in his authoritative study, "Modernism to Realism on the Soviet Stage" (Cambridge University Press, 1989). Vsevolod Vishnevsky's Russian civil-war play, Optimistic Tragedy, opened at the Kamerny on December 18, 1933. "It concerns particular historical events associated with the civil war in the Soviet Union but, more generally, it is an article of faith -- in the triumph of Life over Death, of the Collective over the Individual, of faith in the necessary tragedy of revolution, of the necessary destruction of those who oppose revolution, of hostility to the spirit of anarchism, and faith in the leadership of the party." Indeed, the play, which is featured in this book, marked an important milestone in the development of "socialist realism."The Soviet government closed the Kamerny Theatre in 1949, and Tairov died a year later. The Kamerny's home at 23 Tverskoy Boulevard is now occupied by the Moscow Pushkin Drama Theatre.4to (12 1/8 x 8 7/8 inches / 307 x 220 mm), xlvii [1],1-195 (plates), [3], 199-211 (appendix), [1] pages, in publisher's original brown cloth, lacking the rare dust jacket.

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.

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. .
