Operations not meeting these requirements are speculation." Good advice to avoid the next bubble. Contents: Survey and Approach. Fixed Value Investments. Senior Securities with Speculative Features. Theory of Common Stock Investment: The Theory Factor. Analysis of the Income Account. The Earning Factor in Common Stock Valuation. Balanced-Sheet Analysis. Implications of Asset Value.

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.

The half title page is Signed and inscribed by Hoffmeister to the cartoonist David Low: "For David Low / From his pupil / A Hoffmeister/ Praha 1947" Of the paper wraps, which are faded around the edges, only the front and rear panels remain, the spine panel having gone. Both panels are chipped with small loss mainly at the joints where the spine panel was. The original slipcase is rubbed on most edges and there is loss of the paper cover at the joint of the top and front panel, where the top panel is slightly pushed up. The spine is toned and has a few drip tide marks. The slipcase is still soundly bound. Over all, a very nice set, rare with the author's signature and sound provenance. Adolf Hoffmeister (1902-1973) was a writer and artist. He edited one of the main Czech daily newspapers, Lidové noviny(1928-30) and the main literary paper, Literární noviny (1930-32). And set up an anti-fascist magazine, Simplicus, in the 1930s after the German satiric magazine Simplicissimus was banned by the Nazis. During the war he was imprisoned by the Germans but managed to escape and make his way to the United States. After the war he became the Czech ambassador to France but as the regime grew more stalinist, he left the diplomatic service and became Professor at the Prague Academy of Decorative Arts, where he headed a special department for children¿s book illustrations and cartoons. After the collapse of the ¿Prague Spring¿ of the sixties he left his country for the second time and became Professor in Vincennes (France). In 1970 he returned to Prague and was declared a non-person. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Five original amateur black-and-white photographs of the so-called "Battle of Toledo," during the Toledo Auto-Lite Strike of 1934

      1934. Rare vernacular views of one of the key disputes in American labor history. The Toledo Auto-Lite Strike (April-June, 1934) marked a key victory for the American Federation of Labor and led to widespread unionization in the auto industry. It was also one of the bloodiest labor diputes of the 20th century, culminating in the "Battle of Toledo" on May 23-25, during which more than 5,000 picketers confronted company strikebreakers and Ohio National Guardsmen; by the time the melée ended, two strikers had been shot to death, another 15 wounded by bullets, and dozens of strikebreakers had received injuries in hand-to-hand combat and from hurled rocks, bricks, and debris. The Auto-Lite plant received extensive damage, and many automobiles were overturned by strikers and set afire. The current group of images records the aftermath of these violent incidents. The photographs show the extensive destruction to the Auto-Lite plant building, with many windows broken out, piles of broken bricks heaped against curbs, overturned vehicles and twisted barricades piled in the street. In several of the images National Guardsmen can be seen milling in the background; in one, a group of soldiers and company men occupies the foreground, with one soldier crouched at the ready behind a Browning machine gun. None of these images appears to have been previously published; they are almost certainly the work of either a strikebreaker or a company representative, as the close proximity of the photographer to National Guard troops and company men makes it seem very unlikely that (s)he was a picketer. Five original (vintage) b/w photographs on glossy photographic paper. Each image 11cm x 8cm (4-1/4" x 3-1/2") or the reverse. Each captioned identically in the same hand, in blue ink, on verso: "Electric Auto-lite Strike / Toledo, Ohio / 1934." Images well-printed, with good contrast; minimal fading; images clean on rectos and versos; Near Fine.

        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. .
