        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."

        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...

        Vampire (Translated by Fritz Sallagar)

      New York: The John Day Company 1934 - First edition in English. 195x140mm. pp. 363. Publishers' red cloth with author and title in black on the spine and a black roundel on the upper cover with a kneeling archer device in the centre. Illustrated dust jacket showing the eponymous re-eyed Vampire and two naked women. Title and author printed in red on upper cover and spine. Lower cover has an advertisement for "The Laughing Journey" by Thomas Lennon. There is some wear to the extremities of the dust jacket and minor chipping to the head of the spine of the dust jacket. but otherwise both jacket and contents are in near fine condition. Vampire is the third in a trilogy of horror novels with a protagonist, Frank Braun, based on the author. Ewers was admired by H.P.Lovecraft and was friends with Aleister Crowley. For many he holds an important place in the development of the literary horror genre. However, EF Bleiler, whilst acknowledging the author's effectiveness, wrote that Ewer's work is marred by an annoying pretentiousness and vulgarity which suggests that he would fit right in with Lovecraft and Crowley. This book is rare in a collectable condition and this is an excellent copy. [Attributes: First Edition]

        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.
