      Folio (ca. 360 x 273 mm). [i] (title), 20, [i] (blank) pp. Notated in black ink on music paper with 20 printed staves per page. Scored for double choir and piano. The work begins in A minor, in 3/4, Très Allant (quasi Allo). Textual incipit: "Dans la forêt où rien ne bouge..." The engraver's copy, prepared for the publishing house Alphonse Leduc et Cie. With the composer's autograph signature ("Henri Busser") and date ("Paris, Août 15") to p. 20. Occasional erasures and corrections in black ink in the composer's hand. Lower edge of title with publisher's handstamps and manuscript date ("[19]35") and plate number ("A.L. 19,198") in an early hand. Numerous editorial markings, minor annotations, and occasional corrections in one or more early hands in pencil and red crayon. Slightly worn and soiled; minor ink smudges to 3 pages slightly affecting notation. A piano-vocal edition of Le Petit Chaperon, with plate number A.L. 19,198, was published by Alphonse Leduc in 1935. Not in the Grove Music Online works list. "Firmly rooted in the French 19th-century tradition, Büsser's symphonic and choral writing is indebted to Gounod and Saint-Saëns. He is best known, however, for his dramatic works, which betray Wagner's impact in both their form and their use of the orchestra. The influence of Debussy, whose advice Büsser sought over the opera that became his most successful, Colomba (c1902-10), is also evident in certain harmonic procedures and in an acute sensitivity to orchestral colour. The ballets, such as the light-hearted La ronde des saisons (1905) with its amusing descriptive touches, provide further evidence of his keen dramatic sense." Barbara L. Kelly in Grove Music Online.

Published in October [25,] 1935 after serialization in Scribner's magazine, it was indeed a book about landscape, though Hemingway referred to it in more magical or mystical terms as 'country,' ??"It is probably that this communication of the sense of place and the sense of the immediacy and palpability of the experience in that place, is what gives the Green Hills of Africa its special distinction...??"But even more than country, Green Hills of Africa is a book about writing and writers As a writer, he wanted to see 'how far prose can be carried if any one is serious enough and has luck,' to see if prose could attain a fourth and even a fifth dimension" (Mellow, Hemingway: A Life Without Consequences; Baker, Hemingway, the Writer as Artist). ??IN: Scribner's Magazine, May - November, 1935.

About Fine (flaking to gilt spine lettering), in a bright, about Fine jacket (spine head rubbed with miniscule loss). Provenance: from the collection (now housed at the University of Central Florida Libraries) of bibliophiles Walter and Dorothy Donnelly with their label on front paste down. Petersen A17.1a. Fargnoli, pp. 211-16. Fine- In the 1930s, Faulkner sought release from increasing personal and professional problems through flying lessons; he bought a plane, and his brothers also learned to fly. Eventually Faulkner gave the plane to his brother Dean?and was overcome by guilt when Dean died in a crash in the same year Faulkner published Pylon, which concerns the exploits of a wandering troupe of gypsy aviators. According to The Literary Encyclopedia, Pylon "has many failings, but did offer Faulkner a chance to try out some of the techniques he perfected in Absalom, Absalom!, which is widely considered his greatest achievement." In fact, Faulkner claims to have written Pylon to get away from writing Absalom (Fargnoli, p. 213). Fargnoli calls Pylon "Faulkner's most self-consciously modernist work" and points out the novel's references to both Joyce (in particular the Aeolis episode in Ulysses) and T. S. Eliot (the penultimate chapter of Pylon is entitled "Lovesong of J. Alfred Prufrock" and The Waste Land is evoked throughout). Basis for the 1958 film The Tarnished Angels, featuring Robert Stack, Rock Hudson and Dorothy Malone, about an airplane contest in New Orleans during Mardis Gras.

        [A Collection of Letters, Manuscripts and Printed Items]

      Various Places, 1935. A substantial lot, in very good to fine condition. The material is either directed to, or to the wife or associates of, community leader, inventor and banker John D. Overholt, of Wooster, Ohio, and consists of the following: [a] Five autograph letters signed, 6pp, 4to and 8vo, West New Brighton, New York, 92 Waters Avenue, West New Brighton, New York, The Central Methodist Church, Lansing, Michigan, and 752 Hartshorn Street, Alliance, Ohio, 5 April 1926 to 6 February 1935, with 4 envelopes. From Markham to his "good and generous friend," John D. Overholt and his wife, agreeing [5 April 1926] after "coming back from Missouri" to "have one or more lecture-readings in your meridian"; sending thanks [23 April 1926] "... for your recent letter, inviting to visit you on my way home from Kansas City ... [I]t will be a 'consummation devoutly to be wisht'." And discussing his lecture fees ("Let me say that the matter ... is left entirely in your hands."); confirming [4 July 1932] that he has sent the "... two copies of New Poems" as requested and hopes to see "you two lovely souls" during a forthcoming visit to Toledo; writing [21Oct. 1932] "It has been a joy to meet you again -- you and your two radiant sons, who are blessing the world with their service. . . . We will all meet again ... here or in that beautiful world that awaits us in the great days ahead…"; seeking advice [6 Nov. 1932] "What course would I best take to satisfy the Canada company that Alma Newton Anderson is alive at the present time so that they will feel like paying me the November annuity check. It appears that she is refusing to send the company the usual statement that she is alive"; and [6 Feb. 1935] inquiring about Mrs. Overholt ("I am wondering whether she is keeping on with her little essays, some of which I read with keen interest. She ought to have an outlet in some magazine.") and reporting on work in progress ("...I am working on my Collected Poems, which I am hoping to print next year. I want to see them thru the press, for I don't wish to trust the punctuation to other hands. To me, a comma is as significant as a bend in the Mississippi." Together with a typed letter signed, dated 24 Aug. 1933, from Anna Catherine Markham to John Overholt, written on behalf of her husband, who "was called away to New England leaving a stack of unanswered letters on his table." [b] An autograph manuscript signed of Markham's poem, "Inbrothered," one page, oblong 8vo, dated March 1925, inscribed by the poet, "For my friend, John D. Overholt." [c] An autograph manuscript signed of Markham's poem, "The Place of Peace," one page, oblong 8vo, inscribed "For dear Mrs. J.S. Overholt -- June, 1926." [d] An autograph manuscript signed of Markham's poem, "Two at a Fireside," one page, oblong 4to, dated 1929, inscribed by the author: "To John D. Overholt, friend and comrade, one who never forgets, one who is never forgotten!" [e] An autograph statement signed, written in pencil on brown wrapping paper, one page, oblong 8vo, "House of J.D.O. / Wooster," 3 May 1928. To "My dear Miss Richard [?]", reading: "This concerns my little friend, Mildred, who was absent from school today, attending the Circus. Of course you and I know that a child's one day in the Circus may teach her more than a week in the school. She comes into firsthand contact with the lion, the monkey and the polar bear. We hope you will find this sufficient explanation of Mildred's absence. Respectfully…." [f] An autograph letter signed, one page, 4to, on Markham's printed stationery, 92 Waters Avenue, West New Brighton, Staten Island, New York, 11 July 1928, with envelope. To the "Members of the Poets Garden" in Los Angeles, thanking them for flowers sent on the poet's birthday: "You are all angels: hence I am not surprised that you do these angelic deeds … I will keep you all in mind till the last foam-flower closes over me …Your loving remembrances keep my heart alive and singing all this way." [g] An unsigned autograph manuscript, 6pp, 4to, n.p., n.d. Written in prose on 6 leaves of plain paper, with a number of revisions by the author. A reminiscence of an episode in Markham's younger days, beginning: "In the Far West, did I meet any free-booters, any Knights of the Road? Yes, yes, once long ago, I was saddling my horse, after having worked a long summer in the wheat fields, as a strawbuck, bucking the straw from the threshing machine ... While busy sinching [sic] the saddle on my horse, I was approached by a tall powerful fellow who had been working with me … He came up to me all smiles and friendliness." Evidently incomplete. [h] An autograph manuscript signed, entitled "My First School," 3pp, 4to, n.p., n.d. A reflective piece, in prose, written on the rectos of 3 leaves of plain paper, with Markham's revisions in the text which commences: "In 1872 I was graduated at the State Normal School in San Jose, California; and was soon called to teach a school in San Luis Obispo County. On arriving in the neighborhood ... I found that the school house nearby was not yet completed … I picked out an immense oak-tree and I told all the pupils of that school to meet me under the oak-tree on Monday morning." [i] A black-and-white photograph of the poet, by White, approx. 3 1/2" X 5 1/4," inscribed in the border beneath: "Your friend, Edwin Markham 1935." And finally, [j] A group of printed items including a pamphlet produced for the Memorial Service held for Markham at the St. George Theatre, April 20, 1941; a 1924 broadside printing of "The Man with the Hoe," signed by the poet and dated 1933; a mimeographed copy of the same poem, produced for "The Twenty-fifth Anniversary of the Publication of The Man with the Hoe," inscribed by Markham "For my friend, John D. Overholt," signed, and dated "Jan. 1926"; three different broadside printings of "Lincoln, The Man of the People," one a mimeographed version (c. 1924) inscribed: "For my friend, John D. Overholt, in memory of happy hours together, in 1925" and with a line deleted by the poet, a second (printed) copy, with a typed correction in one line, signed by Markham and dated 1928, and a third (clean) printed version, signed "Edwin Markham 1933."

Rear hinge very slightly cracked, else a superb copy in an almost untouched jacket.

This copy with a 1p typed letter signed from Liddell Hart to the journalist and Western historian Don Russell, corner-mounted on the front free endpaper. In the letter BHLH explains that he hopes that Russell has received the copy that he had asked Yale to send, and asks whether he has managed to trace his articles on Lee. On the rear free is a letter from Norman V. Donaldson, secretary to, and later managing director of the Yale University Press, sending the present volume and explaining that; "We published the American edition of this work last autumn, and although it is somewhat technical, the demand for it from the general public has necessitated our doing a second printing." Based on his Trinity College, Cambridge, Lees Knowles Lectures for 1932-33,"The Movement of Military Thought from the Eighteenth to the Twentieth Century, and its influence on European History." The New York Times review placed this title on "the never overcrowded shelf of sharply intelligent, adult, thoroughly interesting reading." Dedicated "To 'T.E.' [Lawrence] who trod this road before 1914." A wonderful copy of this extremely hard to find title.

        THE AMATEUR GENTLEMAN. Shooting Script

      London: Criterion Films, 1935. First edition. Paperback. Pages are very good to near fine, outer wrapper very good. 230 mimeographed pages. Screenplay by Clemence Dane, based on the novel by Jeffery Farnol (1913). A former boxing champion, now an innkeeper, is accused of stealing a watch from a party of guests at his inn, who happen to be members of English royalty. The old man is arrested and thrown in prison. His son, knowing that his father did not steal the watch, and, suspecting a frame-up, follows the royal party to London, where he poses as a wealthy "gentleman" and insinuates himself into the English court in an effort to find out who framed his father and why. The 102 minute, black and white film, starred Douglas Fairbanks Jr. (who wanted old friend Mona Maris to play the part of the female menace in the film but her part was eliminated from the final script). Staple bound in stiff orange wrappers with cover label, pages measure 8 x 10 inches, outer wrapper slightly larger.

Bookseller's label to foot of front pastedown. Spine sunned and slightly rolled, edges, prelims and endmatter lightly toned; an excellent copy. First edition, first impression. Nancy Mitford was the eldest of the six notorious Mitford Sisters. Wigs on the Green was her third novel, "a facetious parody of the British Union of Fascists, which attracted little critical attention but a considerable amount of bad feeling within her own family: one sister, Diana, had left her first husband to marry the Fascist leader, Sir Oswald Mosley, and another, Unity, was spending most of her time in Germany, an ecstatic follower of Hitler. Neither was amused by their older sister's book" (ODNB).

        Trattati di architetura ingegneria e arte militare.. A cura di Corrado Maltese. Trascrizione di Livio Maltese Degrassi. [2 Bde. komplett].

      4, LXVIII, 289 S., Taf. 186 Taf. 290-616 S., Taf. 187-331, OLwd., Min. gebrauchsspurig. EA dieser Ausgabe. (= Classici italiani di scienze techniche e arti / Trattati di architettura, 3. Bd.). Mit einer Einleitung von Arnaldo Bruschi. Exemplar des Schweizer Architektur- und Kunsthistorikers Georg Germann (1935 - 2016) (von diesem Anstreichungen und Marginalien in Bleistift).- Francesco di Giorgio, genauer Francesco di Giorgio Martini (1439 - 1501), italienischer Architekt, Bildhauer und Maler. Er bildete sich in der Malerei bei Vecchietta aus, war anfangs in Orvieto und seit 1463 in Siena tätig, wo er mit untergeordneten dekorativen und konstruktiven Arbeiten, namentlich in Festungsbauten, beschäftigt war. Im Jahr 1490 erhielt er den Auftrag, das Modell für die Kuppel zum Mailänder Dom anzufertigen, welches auch 1493 von Giovanni Antonio Amadeo ausgeführt wurde. Bei der Belagerung von Neapel im Jahr 1495 soll er die Erfindung der Minen gemacht haben. Seine Bedeutung liegt in seiner außerordentlichen Vielseitigkeit, welche ihn in die erste Reihe der Renaissancekünstler erhebt, wenn er auch keine hervorragende Schöpfung hinterlassen hat. Er starb 1502 in Siena. Seinen "Trattato di architettura civile e militare" hat Cesare Saluzzo (Turin, 1841) erstmal in einer Bearbeitung herausgegeben. In diesem Werk tauchen viele Maschinenelemente (Zahnräder, Schneckengetriebe, Bewegungsgewindespindeln usw.) in seinen Katapult- oder Schwerlastkran-Konstruktionen auf.

Der Sprache wahrer Charakter ist für ihn ein poetischer; zu den Werten aus Religion, Wissenschaft und Kunst steht sie in Beziehung als \"Gefäß, Spiegel, Medium, Zeichen oder Symbol\" (vgl. Ziegenfuß II,811-12). Vossler, ein Konservativer zu dessen Schülern u.a. Victor Klemperer zählte, gehörte mit Lujo Brentano zu den wenigen Professoren, die sich bereits während der Weimarer Republik öffentlich gegen den Antisemitismus an den Hochschulen äußerten. In einer Phase politisch bedingter Zurückgezogenheit entstand die \"Poesie der Einsamkeit in Spanien\". 1937 wurde Vossler, der zu den angesehensten Mitgliedern der Bayerischen Akademie der Wissenschaften gehörte, seiner Rechte an der Universität enthoben.\"Frieda Thiersch (geb. 2. Juli 1889 in München; gest. 10. Juli 1947 ebd.), mit vollem Namen Bertha Frieda Maria Thiersch, war eine deutsche Kunstbuchbinderin, Einbandgestalterin und Grafikerin, die maßgeblich an der Entwicklung der deutschen Buchkunstbewegung nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg beteiligt war.

        Ulysses (Signed by Joyce & Matisse)

      New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1935. First edition thus. Very Good +/Good. A Very Good+ (approaching Near Fine) copy of the book with bright gilt on the front cover. Spine gilt dulled and very slight dark marginal staining at the upper and lower edge to a handful of pages near the end (see images). In a Good only slipcase with several joints splitting, but still holding (a few joints reinforced with archival tape). Complete with the six soft-ground etchings and the 20 tipped in preliminary sketches on blue and yellow sheets. One of 1500 copies, although it is estimated that Joyce only signed a couple hundred copies. Joyce's masterwork of modernism, one of the great books of the 20th century. Though it follows a single day in the life of Dubliner Leopold Bloom - June 16th, a day which has since become a worldwide holiday - Ulysses's complex structure is actually inspired by Homer's Odyssey. The book's stream of consciousness prose and its experimental nature were groundbreaking, and many of the techniques Joyce uses have since become standard fare. Ulysses took Joyce over seven years to write, and the story of its publication became an epic in itself. The work was first released in serial from 1918 to 1920 in the magazine The Little Review, and published in Paris in a limited first edition in 1922 by Sylvia Beach, the owner of the Shakespeare and Company bookstore. It was not, however, released in the UK and United States, where the book had quickly been banned. In fact, copies were smuggled into both countries until a landmark obscenity trial cleared the book for American publication in 1934. Joyce claimed that he "put in so many enigmas and puzzles [into Ulysses] that it will keep the professors busy for centuries arguing over what I meant, and that's the only way of insuring one's immortality." Time has certainly proven him correct. "Ulysses is the most important contribution that has been made to fictional literature in the twentieth century. It will immortalize its author with the same certainty that Gargantua and Pantagruel immortalized Rabelais, and "The Brothers Karamazov" Dostoevsky. It is likely that there is no one writing English today that could parallel Joyce's feat…" (Contemporary NY Times Review, 1922) The Limited Editions Club was known for its impeccably illustrated volumes of classic texts. Founder George Macy had used such famous artists as Picasso - to illustrate a 1934 version of Lysistrata - and spared no expense for his 1935 edition of Ulysses. Matisse was paid $5,000 and made 26 illustrations for the work. Rumor has it that Matisse did not even read Ulysses itself, but rather based all of his work on the Odyssey. He did, however, stay in contact with Joyce while he worked on the drawings, done in charcoal and pencil. "…the edition represents a rare example of a text in which both author and illustrator occupy an important position in the canon of their respective arts." (James A Knapp, "Joyce and Matisse Bound: Modernist Aesthetics in the Limited Editions Club Ulysses"). Very Good + in Good dust jacket.

        Der Öffentliche Gesundheitsdienst. Jahrgang 1 - 10 (mehr nicht erschienen) in 14 Bänden. Zeitschrift des Reichsausschusses für Volksgesundheitsdienst E.V., der Staatsmedizin Akademie Berlin und der Wissenschaftlichen Gesellschaft der deutschen Ärzte des öffentlichen Gesundheitsdienstes.

      Leipzig: Thieme; 1935-1944.. Ohne die "Teilausgaben B" des 1. und 2. Jahrgangs und die "Teilausgaben A" des 7 - 9 Jahrgangs. ("Während die Ausgabe A dieser Zeitschrift sich mit den ärztlichen Aufgaben und Wissensgebieten befassen soll, wird die Ausgabe B sich an Verwaltungsbeamte, Lehrer und Erzieher sowie an die nicht ärztlichen Hilfskräfte der Gesundheitsämter wie an alle diejenigen wenden, die innerhalb der nationalsozialistischen Bewegung oder in der privaten Wohlfahrtspflege sich mit den oben gekennzeichneten Wissensgebieten und praktischen Erfahrungen beschäftigen wollen." Gütt, aus dem Vorwort). - Umfangreicher und eindringlicher Einblick in das medizinische Feld zur Zeit des Nationalsozialismus. Der Herausgeber Arthur Gütt, Urheber der nationalsozialistischen Zwangssterilisationspolitik, möchte mit dem Blatt die bis dato verschiedenen Organisationen des Gesundheitswesen einigen, und "ermöglichen, die Ärzte und Hilfskräfte der Gesundheitsämter im Sinne nationalsozialistischer Staatsführung und nationalsozialistischer Weltanschauung zu erziehen, um sie zu befähigen, das nationalsozialistische Wollen der Gesetze Adolf Hitlers und seiner Regierung auf dem Gebiet des Gesundheitswesens praktisch durchzuführen". Die Zeitschrift enthält somit nicht nur medizinische Fach- und Forschungsberichte, Statistiken, Personalia, (Fach-)Referate (alles zum zeitgenössischen Trend), sondern auch gesetzliche Anordnungen, Erlasse und Leitfäden zur Durchführung. Selbst im Kriegsjahrgang 10 (1944) wird die Ärzteschaft im Vorwort des Reichsgesundheitsministers Conti motiviert, gerade in Zeiten des "Bombenterrors", "Gesundheit und Leistungskraft des deutschen Volkes zu erhalten" sowie "Mit Einsatz des ganzen Könnens (..), Verletzte und Erkrankte wiederherzustellen, ihren Lebensmut und Leistungswillen anzuspornen, Weichheit und Schwäche entgegenzutreten und darüber hinaus in der Abwehr allgemeiner gesundheitlichen Gefahren, wie in der Seuchenabwehr, Entscheidendes zu leisten. (...) Ihre Erfüllung wird der Beitrag des deutschen Arztes zum Siege sein.

        Autograph letter signed ("Romain Rolland"). Villeneuve (Vaud), 16. XI. 1935.

      1935. Large 8vo. 2 pp. on double leaf. To André Malraux, on the role both of them play in a (political?) movement: "C'est à n'y pas croire, que 'Front Mondial' ne publie pas vos Appels! Non, je ne le savais pas, je suis trop loin, on ne m'écrit guère que quand on a qqchose à me demander. Et j'ai toujours insisté pour qu'on vous priât d'assumer dans votre mouvement un rôle actif de premier plan. Ce rôle que, pour de multiples raisons (de santé, d'éloignement, d'occupations) je ne puis remplir que très insuffisamment. La seule considération qui m'arrête est la crainte qu'on vous dérobe trop de votre temps. Vous le donnez déjà si généreusement! En vérité, nous sommes trop peu pour faire face à tous les fronts de la bataille. Il nous faut former des équipes. - Mais je sais bien que vous êtes irremplaçable. J'aime et j'admire votre esprit, votre art, votre énergie. Je ne vous ai jamais dit quel prix j'attache à votre sympathie. Je vous serre la main affectueusement [...]". - Right edge with small tear; traces of folding.

Henri-Camille Wampach (1884 -1958) besuchte das Athenäum in Luxemburg und studierte anschließend Theologie am Priesterseminar in Luxemburg. Nach der Priesterweihe 1908 und kurzer Tätigkeit als Koadjutor schloss sich ein Studium der Geschichte und der Diplomatik an der Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin an, das er 1915 mit einer Promotion zur Geschichte der Grundherrschaft Echternach abschloß. Zum Wintersemester 1931/1932 erfolgte die Berufung an die Universität in Bonn als Dozent für luxemburgische und westeuropäische Geschichte, wo er 1935 zum Honorarprofessor ernannt wurde. Weil er aus nationalsozialistischer Sicht als politisch unzuverlässig galt, wurde ihm 1941 die Stellung entzogen und der Professorentitel aberkannt. In der Folge lebte er in Echternach als Hilfsgeistlicher. 1946 wurde er erneut zum Honorarprofessor in Bonn ernannt, nahm die Lehrverpflichtung aber kaum war, sondern widmete sich seinem Hauptwerk, den hier vorliegenden „Urkunden- und Quellenbücher zur Geschichte der altluxemburgischen Territorien".

Some foxing to edges; an excellent copy in the jacket that has some nicks to extremities. Frontispiece and 39 black and white plates. First edition in English, first impression. First published in Paris under the title La Croisière jaune: expédition Citroën Centre-Asie, troisième mission in 1933. The Third Citroën Expedition, the legendary Croisiere Jaune, was organized by Georges-Marie Haardt, Director General of Citroën, to promote the company's "Autochenilles," half-tracks fitted with Kergresse's tracks at the rear and a road-roller attachment at the front. The "Pamir" party with Haardt and French explorer Audouin-Dubreuil set out from Beirut with the intention of following the Silk Road to Peking; the "Chine" group were to meet them having departed from Tientsin. Russia withdrew permission to cross Turkmenistan at the last minute, so two of the vehicles were manhandled north into the Karakoram, crossing the close-to 14,000 ft Burzil Pass to Mishgar where they were finally halted by the terrain. The party proceeded on camels and horses to Kashgar. They met the others and despite arrest, bandits, rebels, and crashing through ice at a river crossing, went on to Peking in the "Chine" group vehicles, arriving in February 1932. The success of the expedition was marred by Haardt's death from pneumonia at Hong Kong the following month. The publisher's retained copy with their stamp to the front panel of the dust jacket and the front pastedown. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Discovery — Deluxe Limited Edition -- The Story of the Second Byrd Antarctic Expedition. Signed by R E Byrd

      New York: G.P. Putnam’s Sons 1935 - New York: G.P. Putnam’s Sons, 1935, First Edition Deluxe Limited and signed Issue — this being copy #175. 1st printing, 8vo – 25.1cm. [xxi], (1), 405pp – rough cut edges and this copy un-trimmed. Appendix, Indexed, maps and over 100 photographic illustrations, gilt speckled end leaves, publisher’s ¾ blue cloth and vellum boards with bright gilt ruling; bright gilt title and ruling on lightly darkened spine cloth. A Near Fine and complete copy. Conrad p291, Spence 229, Taurus 119. Combining the most primitive means and the most modern while traveling by ship, dog team and airplane, Admiral Byrd and his men penetrated to the very heart of the Antarctic. In all, twenty two branches of science profited from the discoveries during this expedition. Among the numerous firsts that resulted were: the Antarctic ice cap was tapped by seismic soundings and the depth of the ice determined; on the rim of the polar plateau 180 miles from the South Pole, a sledging party discovered the petrified remnants of semi-tropical vegetation, and on the glacierized slopes of the Edsel Ford Range another party discovered a rare profusion of Antarctic flora hinting of mineral wealth and microscopic life. A well-written and informative first-person account. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Der Herausgeber Arthur Gütt, Urheber der nationalsozialistischen Zwangssterilisationspolitik, möchte mit dem Blatt die bis dato verschiedenen Organisationen des Gesundheitswesen einigen, und "ermöglichen, die Ärzte und Hilfskräfte der Gesundheitsämter im Sinne nationalsozialistischer Staatsführung und nationalsozialistischer Weltanschauung zu erziehen, um sie zu befähigen, das nationalsozialistische Wollen der Gesetze Adolf Hitlers und seiner Regierung auf dem Gebiet des Gesundheitswesens praktisch durchzuführen". Die Zeitschrift enthält somit nicht nur medizinische Fach- und Forschungsberichte, Statistiken, Personalia, (Fach-)Referate (alles zum zeitgenössischen Trend), sondern auch gesetzliche Anordnungen, Erlasse und Leitfäden zur Durchführung. Selbst im Kriegsjahrgang 10 (1944) wird die Ärzteschaft im Vorwort des Reichsgesundheitsministers Conti motiviert, gerade in Zeiten des "Bombenterrors", "Gesundheit und Leistungskraft des deutschen Volkes zu erhalten" sowie "Mit Einsatz des ganzen Könnens (.), Verletzte und Erkrankte wiederherzustellen, ihren Lebensmut und Leistungswillen anzuspornen, Weichheit und Schwäche entgegenzutreten und darüber hinaus in der Abwehr allgemeiner gesundheitlichen Gefahren, wie in der Seuchenabwehr, Entscheidendes zu leisten. (.) Ihre Erfüllung wird der Beitrag des deutschen Arztes zum Siege sein." [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Girl Campers (Being a series of letters written by Patricia Highsmith at age 12 on the occasion of her first stay away from home.) [Author of: The Talented Mr. Ripley; The Price of Salt; Strangers on a Train; Deep Water; The Blunderer; The Cry of the Owl, etc...]

      Mount Morris: Woman's World Publishing, 1935. First edition. Wrappers. Very Good. A Very Good or better copy of PATRICIA HIGHSMITH'S FIRST PUBLISHED WORK (mailing address to cover margin, not affecting image, a little age toning and quite minor soiling to the cover, corner bend to the upper leading corner of several pages, particularly to the rear wrap's upper left corner, a few pencil marks to the rear wrapper's verso); Patricia Highsmith's authorial debut, written when she was only 12 and published when she was only 14 years old -- being a series of letters from the then nascent writer to her mother and stepfather, written by Highsmith while away at a girls camp. [The story is illustrated by captioned sketches, but we cannot determine whether or not Highsmith created the images.] Providing hints of Highsmith's person and career, the letters, among other things, ask that they "bring the funny papers if you come" -- presaging her brief comic book work, mention her activities: "We are going swimming 'Diana" tonight...Diana means without any clothes on at all. Do you think it's all right to go in Diana?" (perhaps presaging her later sexual preferences and clearly hinting without expecting an answer -- as the letter speaks of that evening's activities and would not reach her parents until well after the adventure was over), and speak of another camper she wants her parents to meet, Janet Armstrong, whose father is a publisher, being an early career indication. A very good or better copy of a scarce item from this noted author -- and in better condition than we typically see this ephemeral item. THE FIRST PUBLISHED WORK OF PATRICIA HIGHSMITH.
