        Princess Hildegarde (SIGNED)

      Row, Peterson and Company, Evanston, Illinois 1935 - Book will close its text block but not its boards; thus, "very good." Boards are pumpkin cloth illustrated in black; a few lighter patches to rear board. Vertical strips of material which we take to be white library tape run along inside edges of boards at hinges; this material has been tucked UNDER the endpapers; we thus conclude this is a "reinforced library binding", as made. No date later than 1935 copyright, below which appears the cryptic numeral "873." Dated by the author "Xmas 1934" (making this a very early copy) and boldly signed to verso of FFE "Compliments of the Author / Sidney Baldwin." To title page, Uncle Raymond has then written to Cindy, Billy, & Tommy: "Ask Gran to tell you more about Sidney Baldwin, who writes a daily column for the Peoria Journal Star, which her father once owned." By the author of "Young Prince Hubert." Hard-to-find in signed condition. 304 pp. Reduced from $1,600. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

It was then endorsed by the NAA's timer, Joe Nikrent, who placed a barograph aboard her plane to record the flight. On April 19, 1935, at 9:55pm, Amelia Earhart took off from the United Air Terminal in Burbank, California, for a 1,750-mile goodwill flight to Mexico City. Joe Nikrent, who endorsed this check, was the NAA timer. He placed a barograph aboard her plane. When she arrived in Mexico City on April 20th, she landed to crowd of over 20,000 persons. At a special session of the City Council, Earhart was presented with a gold medal for her flight. She was the first person to fly solo from Los Angeles to Mexico City, April 19-20, 1935, completing the trip in 13 hours 23 minutes. The National Aeronautic Association was founded in 1905 as the Aero Club of America. it was incorporated as the NAA in 1922.

        Photo Album, Department Store]: Zur standigen Erinnerung an das am 1. Sept. 1935. gegrundete Geschaft. [In Commemoration of the Opening of the Store on September 1st 1935]

      1935 - Oblong small quarto. Cord-tied cloth board decoratively printed with a geometric pattern; tissue guard for each page. Just about fine. The album contains 44 mounted black and white gelatin silver photographs, with another 23 similar images laid in, for a total of 67 photographs. Titled in neat white album ink inside the front board, else the images are uncaptioned, but many of the images have additional signage within the image that would probably reward further research as to the exact location. Apparently meant to commemorate the opening of a German fabric and fashion store. The fascinating images are riotously stylized, with many featuring particularly modernist (or perhaps surrealistic) or creepy looking mannequins, all in service of the elaborate displays of clothing or fabrics, mostly it seems, for women's clothing.

      New York: Viking, 1935. Gilt cloth. Spine and top edges a bit sunned, gilding has a bit of patina, as usual, otherwise a very good or better copy in lightly spine-sunned dust jacket with a bit of minor fraying at the lower edge toward the spine and trivial edgewear. Neat pencil name on first blank. First published edition of the author's first and only novel, an account of the victimization of three French line soldiers by commanders intent on saving their own reputations. It was preceded by five hundred promotional copies of printed sheets bound in wrappers, untitled. Signed, in ink, by the author on the first blank. Sidney Howard undertook a dramatic adaptation of some note in 1935, but the 1957 film adaptation by Stanley Kubrick did much to remind the post- war public of its virtues. It remains one of the most widely known anti-war novels of the pre-WWII years. From the distinguished WWI Fiction Collection of Barry Maurer, with his laid in bookplate (see our catalogue 150).

Photos clean and generally well-developed. VG overall.. 17 leaves containing 227 b/w photographs affixed with corner brackets, plus 19 loose b/w photos. Total of 246 b/w photos, ranging from 2-1/2" x 3-5/8" to 3-3/8" x 5-5/8"; most on average ~ 3-1/4" x 4-1/2". 14-7/8" x 12-1/4" Collection of circus photographs from the late 1930s and 1940s, primarily featuring performers during shows, practicing, relaxing or posing behind the tents, etc., as well as their trains, transport caravans, and circus animals (camels, elephants, horses, dogs). Many bear handwritten notes about the location, date, and/or the performer's name to the verso, and several are stamped with the Peoria and Decatur, Illinois, addresses of circusiana hobbyists Roy Frietsch and Bert Backstein, respectively. Backstein cofounded the Circus Model Builder's and Owner's Association in 1935, and was later commissioned by circus historian Gordon Potter to create a miniature version of a Golden Age circus; the result, with the assistance of Backstein's son, Bill, is now known as the Potter Backstein Collection. The photographers (we presume multiple) were likely not directly associated with circuses, but, like Backstein and Frietsch, enthusiasts who were friendly with the performers and crews, and allowed to take photographs outside of the public sphere of the performance tents. The performers include trapeze artists, clowns, elephant and horseback riders, and miniature horses, possibly from Backstein's own miniature circus, among others. Some of the circus companies featured are Russell Bros. Pan-Pacific, Cole Bros., Austin Bros.; most of the circuses pictured appear to have taken place in the Midwest. We date the photos partially based on the dates on the verso of some of the photos themselves, and also by the trucks and tractors shown transporting the circus cars. Overall, a delightful collection of performance and behind the scenes circus photos.

        [Salesman's Sample Book of Sacramental Vestment Textiles]

      [Saint Etienne]: [Les Succrs de G. Bochard], [ca. 1935]. 4to. Commercial burgundy board scrapbook. String-tied with matching silk braid. 10.5” x 8” approx. containing sixteen card-stock leaves mounted recto and verso with 92 original silk sample swatches. Three black-and-white photo illustrations of finished patterns also mounted within. Mild wear and staining to boards (only). Internally bright, sound, and apparently complete. Near fine. Lovely salesman's sample book of sacramental vestment textiles from the French firm of G. Bochard, which operated in St. Etienne from the late 19th century until the mid 20th. The company focused primarily on embroidered silks, not only for vestments but also table cloths, banners, book braids, and the like. Examples in this volume include swatches of numerous priestly vestments: alb, cincture, maniple, stole, chasuble, cope, dalmatic, surplice, and cotta represented in brightly-colored woven silks as well as embroidered and tapestry fabrics — many with stock notes, and other related penciled marginalia (in French). A beautiful production.

        Chinese Pottery and Porcelain from the Eumorfopoulos Collection available for Private Purchase

      Bluett & Sons, London 1935 - First edition. Octavo. Softcover. Very good. 58 Pages, 331 objects described. No images. A very scarce catalogue of Chinese ceramics from the Eumorfopoulos collection that were kept by Eumorfopoulos rather than being sold to museums. The 331 objects offered for sale in this catalogue also have the number corresponding to the entry in the massive 6 volumes on Chinese ceramics of the Eumorfopoulos collection. Almost all of the 331 objects were depicted in the 6 columes. This Bluett sales catalogue is thus of the greatest importance as one can now easily see which items were sold on the open market and to date may still circulate in the trade or come available in the future.
