Pp. 1934 (see footnote), printed mainly in black letter, double column, with pp. 1042-4 in greek, 1 folding woodcut insert (of Windsor Castle), pictorial title page to Volume II, and approximately 140 text illustrations, plus decorative head & tailpieces and initials, cr. folio; early vellum boards, slightly soiled and worn, rebacked by Harry Green of Melbourne in twentieth century maroon morocco, the spine with six raised bands and gilt lettered black leather title label, the boards with matching maroon leather corners; later endpapers and binder's blank, with newscutting (reproducing the title page of John Bunyan's 1662 copy of Foxe's book) and photograph (of same) taped to the upper pastedown, bookplate on upper free endpaper, a few paper repairs (notably reinforcing fore-edges of first few leaves, and occasionally elsewhere), 32 lines of the text on p. 1854 replaced with a handwritten version laid on, in a very neat early hand, with a few light water stains, a couple of small ink stains and early marginalia, a few edge chips or small tears, very occasional minor loss of text from creasing (p. 267), small hole (pp. 397/8), or slight surface grazes (p. 597), scattered light foxing, browning and soiling; printed by Peter Short, by the assigne of R. 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 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. .

        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.

        Typed letter signed to noted American band composer and leader Edwin Franko Goldman

      1/2 page, single-spaced. Large octavo, 266 x 184 mm. Dated Brookline, Massachusetts, January 31, 1934. With Schoenberg's name and address handstamped to upper left corner. In English. Schoenberg comments about a commissioned translation, by Goldman, of a text he had originally written in German. He is not quite satisfied with Goldman's work and requests a new translation: "Dear Mr. Goldman, you find enclosed the translation you have send [!] me with your letter of January 29th. There you find also some marginal notes where I have signed some of the parts of the translation, by which I cannot be satisfied... I understand your intention in translating my words and I can well appreciate it. Surely it would be of a great advantage if all I have written could be said in such a manner that everybody can conceive it. But surely also: The thought would loose [!] so much of its dep[th] and of its prospect, that I am forced to renounce another succes[s] of my word, than an [in?]adequate-one..." Manuscript annotation to upper right corner in an unknown hand (?Goldman's): "Ans." [?Answer]. Slightly browned and stained; creased at folds; minor remnants of archival mounting tape to blank verso. Edwin Franko Goldman (1878-1956) was a band composer and bandleader living in New York. The letter inadvertently testifies to the newly-immigrated Schoenberg's struggle with the English language, but also to his uncompromising nature. In the end, Goldman decided to publish Schoenberg's article in German. See Schoenberg's letter to Goldman of February 3, 1934 published in Arnold Schoenberg: Sämtliche Werke Section IV: Orchestral Works. Series B, Volume 13 edited by Rudolf Stephan, p. xxiii.

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

      Moscow: Izd. Vseros. teatral nogo obshchestva, 1934. First Edition. 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. In Russian. Blindstamp to front board, both boards rubbed, small scrape to rear paste down. Tissue guards separating each play, plate 36 unpublished, according to list of illustrations in the appendix, plate 41 loose, some small closed tears in a few pages, plate 175 improperly trimmed, not affecting the illustration. Overall, Very Good or better. A stunning look at the first 20 years of the Kamerny Theatre, one of the most innovative theatres at an important moment in Soviet theatre history. SCARCE.

        The Story of a Country Boy

      New York: Farrar & Rinehart. (1934). First. First edition. Orange cloth gilt. Boards a trifle soiled, near fine without dustwrapper. A novel about the evolution of a "self-made man" from a humble country bumpkin to a pretentious captain of industry, by this satirical, proto-feminist novelist who has recently been rediscovered. Basis for the 1935 film Man of Iron directed by William C. McGann, and featuring Barton MacLane and Mary Astor. Gore Vidal, whose critical essay helped restore her fame, called her a better satirist than Twain and said she was "our best comic novelist," and Ernest Hemingway once told her she was his "favorite living novelist" -- although she was not averse to poking fun at Hemingway himself, which she did in her novel, The Wicked Pavilion. Novelist Lisa Zeidner, in a review of a fairly recent biography of Powell in The New York Times Book Review, said that "she is wittier than Dorothy Parker, dissects the rich better than F. Scott Fitzgerald, is more plaintive than Willa Cather in her evocation of the heartland and has a more supple control of satirical voice than Evelyn Waugh, the writer to whom she's most often compared." Powell was an archetypal free spirit, living much of her life in Greenwich Village, taking -- and flaunting -- lovers frequently although she was married, and mercilessly skewering the postures and foibles of an array of New York types, from bohemian artists to wealthy tycoons. .

Indeed, as in Dobzhansky's case, Timofeeff-Ressovsky's conception of the evolutionary process thereafter bore the strong stamp of Wright's concenptions. Timofeeff-Ressovsky published three major papers on evolution in nature (Buzzati-Traverso, Jucci, and Timofeeff-Ressovsky 1938, Timofeeff-Ressovsky 1939, 1940). All three reflected Wright's ideas."

        A unique album of correspondence, including 13 autographed photographs, 8 additional unsigned photographs, 6 Typed Letters, signed, and 4 Autographed Letters, signed, 9 completed "mimeographed form" war records with signed and handwritten responses, and other items of interest by, and about, some of the most distinguished aviators of WWI, including members of the renowned Lafayette Flying Corps, and Lafayette Escadrille. Most of the letters, forms, and photos were replies to inquiries from Colonel James Farber, a writer for the Dayton Daily News, who was asked by an aeronautics magazine in 1934, to "ascertain the present whereabouts and occupations of various wartime pilots."

      - ACES AND AVIATORS OF WW I. Included among the 10 letters is a correspondence on personal letterhead, from renowned American war ace and Medal of Honor recipient, Eddie Rickenbacker, who had 26 aerial victories and was America's most celebrated aviator of the war. Another intriguing response comes from combat pilot, Edwin C. Parsons, one of the 38 members of the famed Lafayette Escadrille, who later became an FBI agent, screen writer, and technical director for Paramount Films. In his 1934 letter, which is type written on Fox Film Corporation Studio letterhead, Parsons writes in part, "I haven't flown a great deal in recent years, having no particular desire to do so and finding no great pleasure in it, although I have been director of flying activities and technical director of several air pictures such as WINGS, LEGION OF THE CONDEMNED and HELL'S ANGELS." WINGS, a 1927, action-romance starring Clara Bow and Gary Cooper, was directed by another former World War I pilot queried by Farber, William "Wild Bill" Wellman. Wellman enlisted in the French Foreign Legion in 1917, but was later assigned as a fighter pilot and was the first American to join N.87, les Chats Noir (Black Cat Group), in the Lafayette Flying Corps. He was awarded the Croix de Guerre with two palms for his service. In his 1934 letter to Farber, which is type written on Walter Wagner Productions, Inc. letterhead, Wellman writes in part, "The only times that I fly now are when it is necessary from a business standpoint. I do my flying, then, as a passenger-in other words, frankly, I have had my belly full."One notable correspondence comes from Russian-born, Boris Sergievsky, and includes an accompanying war record that is type-written in his own words. One of the most colorful aviators of his time, Sergievsky began his military career as an infantry officer and was awarded Imperial Russia's highest honor for leading a charge that captured a fortified enemy hilltop. Sergievsky then took to the air and earned the title of ace while flying against Austria-Hungary during the war. After the Bolshevik revolution he joined the White Army, and in 1923, he emigrated to America, where he eventually became chief test pilot for Igor Sikorsky, setting 17 world aviation records. His 1934 letter to Farber is hand written on Sikorsky Aviation Corporation letterhead and includes the original accompanying envelope. Other pilots who wrote letters in response to Farber's inquiries include, Charles H. Dolan, Jr., Frederick Ordway, Jr., Cecil "Pop" Sellers (Sellers died, along with Pan American's first pilot, Edwin Musick, in a mid air explosion while working for the airline), Eliot Springs, Arthur J. Coyle, Jesse creech, Lawrence Smart, and Raymond Collishaw. (Collishaw was Canada's second-highest scoring fighter pilot, and achieved 60 aircraft victories by the war's close, plus a further eight observation balloons, and went on to become a vice admiral in WWII.) 13 autographed photos from this collection include; Eddie Rickenbacker (inscribed to Charles P. Searles), Herman Whitman, Henry Forster, Thomas Moore (three autographed photos), Douglass Campbell (also includes an autographed "Sky Birds" trading card), Reed Landis, Ernest Crossen, John Loggie, and German pilot Kurt Liebau. 8 additional unsigned photos and reprints also accompany the 9 "mimeographed form" war records. These signed, mimeographed forms include biographical information, including parents, marriages, children, occupation, etc., war service including, units served with, enemy aircraft destroyed, dates wounded or captured, decorations, etc. The form also asks for opinions on the "greatest war flyer" from each country. Also included in this unique collection, is an interesting promotional pictorial broadside of William Avery "Billy" Bishop, Canada's top ace of the war, who is credited with 72 victories. The broadside reads in part, "The above genuine Autograph by Colonel Bishop is indeed a Souvenir of the Great World [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
