        A Study of Tom Thomson. The Story of a Man Who Looked for Beauty and for Truth in the Wilderness

      Toronto: Discus Press, 1935. Undetermined. very good. 131 out of 450 copies set by hand by the author and printed on Kelsey press. xxii, 133pp. Octavo. Green cloth covered boards with gilt lettering on spine. Text block is generally very clean and bright. Bottom and side outer edges untrimmed. A few B/W illustrations within. Four tipped in colour plate reproductions, including frontis. Slight crease to frontis page. A nice copy. very good Signed and numbered in black ink by the author in the limitation page. Canadian author Blowden Davies moved to Toronto in 1921 where she met with the GROUP of SEVEN, a group of artists renowned for their post-impressionist styled portrayals of Canadian landscapes. Her interest in Canada's artistic community grew leading to the authorship of this book. Davies' texts are well known for exploring Canadian social history. Blodwen Davies was a prolific writer, publishing works including: Storied Streets of Quebec (1927), Old Father Forest (1930), Daniel Du Lhut (1930), Ruffles and Rapiers (1930), Saguenay and Gaspe (1932), Romantic Quebec (1932), the Charm of Ottawa (1932), Youth, Marriage and the Family (1948), Quebec: Portrait of a Province (1952) and Ottawa: Portrait of a Capital (1954). The majority of Davies' work was historical, but in the years leading up to her death she developed an interest in folklore and mennonite history in Canada. It seems there are two varients of the book, the first has a limitation page of 100 copies and this example where the page has been reset with a limitation of 450 copies. There is no indication of why this was done as the books are identical. 1935

        Emmy Göring. Portrait. Öl auf Holz montierter Leinwand in Holzrahmen.

      (um 1935 - ). 34 x 22 cm. Signiert. Aus dem Nachlass der Künstlerin. Paraskewe Bereskine wurde 1898 in St. Peterburg geboren. Nach ihrer Ausbildung in der Petersburger Akademie der Künste kam sie 1925 nach Berlin, wo sie ihren Lebensmittelpunkt fand. Baika war in der ersten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts eine schillernde Figur in Deutschland. Sie bewegte sich in der Umgebung des Stefan George-Kreises und war u.a. mit Ernst Kantorowicz und dem Maler Erich Heckel befreundet. 1927 heiratete sie den Verleger Helmut Küpper, der nach dem Tode von Georg Bondi, dessen Verlag übernahm. 1934 stellte sie ihre Werke in der Galerie Gurlitt in Berlin aus. Dort wurde der damalige Generalfeldmarschall Hermann Göring auf sie aufmerksam. Er erstand einige Werke und war so begeistert von Paraskewes Kunst, dass er 1934 sein erste Frau Carin und 1935 seine zweite Frau Emmy von ihr malen liess. Die Ausstellung im Februar 1938 in der Preussischen Akademie der Künste, zusammen mit dem Maler Werner Peiner, stand unter dem Patronat Görings. Das persönliche Interesse Görings sicherte Paraskewe Bereskine einen festen Platz im deutschen Kulturleben jener Zeit. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        La Leggenda di Amer

      Milano: Edizioni S.A.D.E.L.. Hardcover. Paper pastedown on boards. . Near Fine. Scarce toy theater book, replete with five act juvenile play, stage and cut-out characters, props and sets -- the whole kit and kaboodle! No copies located on OCLC. N.d., circa 1935. Oblong, 24.5 by 35 cm. A juvenile pastoral play, characters include a butterfly, a squirrel, a turtle and a deer. The little boy, Amer, is desperate to find a cure for his mother who is ill, and he enlists the aid of the animals, who show themselves to be self-centered and useless. Only the deer has suggestions, such as bringing a red flower from a distant field, all of which are thwarted by the instigation of the other animals. Finally, as the third tip, the deer tells him he should sheer the hair off of a sleeping bear. But the den he is sent to turns out to be the turtle's home. In the last act the deer is transformed to a pretty girl, Alice, and we learn that Amer has brought about his mother's recovery by proving his mettle with tests of patience and bravery. Thus, it would seem the fairy tale story has a not so subtle moral that fit perfectly with Fascistic ideals. The page numbering is not entirely straightforward. It goes up to 66. 14 of these pages are actually unnumbered -- they constitute color backdrops or characters for the various scenes, and they are printed on card stock with perforations to allow easy cutting out of the book. Also four unnumbered leaves or pages at the end with instructions and/or tables. Also one folding stage, and in the back, a pocket meant for safekeeping of cut pieces. As the exact breakdown of the parts and pieces is open to debate, suffice it to say that we can assert that this copy is both complete and in entirely unused condition. The five act playlet is essentially a juvenile pastoral play. The only condition issue, and minor at that, are small tears of the paper pastedown by the rear joint, and perhaps other signs of light handling over the years.

Hint of a lean, few faint spots of loss to varnish and minor rubbing to spine gilt, else a Near Fine or better copy in Near Fine or better jacket, vibrant and bright with several short edge tears and nicks. A very sharp, unrestored copy of a title prone to fading and heavy wear. Bruccoli A4.1.a. O'Hara's third book (second novel), and easily among his best. "Set in the district of New York City covered by the Butterfield 8 telephone exchange, the story recounts the final days in Gloria Wandrous’s tragically short life in the late spring of 1930. . . . Flashbacks detail a history of pre-adolescent sexual abuse, liberal misuse of alcohol and far too many encounters with men. This time, Gloria desperately hopes, will be different. . . . O'Hara always claimed that his various protagonists were taken from the psychological profiles of real people, but here was a bone fide roman à clef, drawn from the diaries and tragic demise of one Starr Faithful, alleged to have had relationships with a number of prominent citizens, including former mayor Jimmie Walker."

        I, Claudius : from the autobiography of Tiberius Claudius, born B.C. 10, murdered and deified A.D. 54; [with] Claudius the God and His Wife Messalina

      New York: Harrison Smith and Robert Haas [through 1935], MCMXXXIV [1934]. First Printing. Hardcover. First American Editions (no additional printings noted) in First State bindings. Tall, thick 8vo's: 494, with with title page vignette and folding genealogical table of Tree of the Imperial Family and Connexions; 583,[1], with title page vignette and two folding genealogical tables, of the Royal Family of the Herods and of the Tree of the Imperial Family. Publisher's navy blue cloth, spines stamped in gilt, medallions stamped in blind (I, Claudius) and gilt (Claudius the God) on upper covers; pictorial dust jackets, I, Claudius priced $3.00 with "recommended by the Book-of-the-Month Club" decal on upper cover, Claudius the God unpriced and unclipped. (Speculation abounds as to whether this is actually the book-club issue, but aside from the unpriced jacket it is otherwise identical to the first trade edition. What's more, the jacket's back panel contains a list of 40 Smith and Hass titles, all priced, highly unusual for any book-club edition.) An uncommonly bright set, about Fine (evidence of neat, partial book plate removal from upper paste down of Claudius the God), in better than Near Fine jackets without tears or chips but spine panels faded (as inevitably). In 1934, Graves was awarded the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for both volumes. Higginson A42b and A43b. Graves's fictional autobiography of the Roman Emperor Claudius, using psychological realism in a story of political intrigue in first century Rome. Claudius the God and His Wife Messalina soon followed, and the publication of these books brought Graves international recognition and some financial stability. "Before Graves, this literary form was seldom other than a romance, contemporary to whatever age in which it was written and covered over with a thin veneer reminiscent of exotic climates and distant times and places. Graves, however, uses the form of the historical novel not to disguise the present but to explore and bring to light the past. . . . It is a measure of Graves’s talent and skill that he can make his evocation of the past seem real and vivid, even to those with a solid grounding in the history of the early Roman Empire."

      New York: Harrison Smith & Robert Haas, 1935. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine-/Fine-. First Printing (February, 1935, on copyright page), in First Issue dust jacket (with correct titles listed on rear panel). 8vo: 315,[1]pp. Publisher's cobalt-blue cloth, spine and upper cover stamped in gilt within a horizontal black band, top edge stained black; pictorial dust jacket, priced $2.50. 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. 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.

"Seven Pillars, for all its unevenness of interest and quality, and its frequent straining for effect, is a great and memorable work [Churchill ranked it with 'the greatest books ever written in the English language.'] . . . Novelistic in many ways, in its creation of character most obviously, and in its imaginative qualities, [it] often tread[s] a fine line between purple prose and hauntingly luminous description, between accounts of monotonous camel rides or Bedouin encampments and passages of great spirituality and insight . . . That Seven Pillars is no straightforward historical or military record is clear (though its skilful and knowledgeable assimilation of historical, military and diplomatic background is equally so). Subsequent researches have shown it to be likely that Lawrence embellished the story in places to give his own part and prowess greater prominence. But . . . there is no doubt that his achievements as a military commander were remarkable . . .

Stephensen, who had initially agreed to publish the collection, The Ploughman and other poems was printed in Sydney by Boylan & Co. for the Beacon Press in an edition of 300 standard copies (Hubber & Smith, B1). Only a handful of copies are recorded in private and public collections. The exceptional rarity of this edition is explained by White's admission, in a letter to the bibliophile Geoffrey Ingleton, that he had 'burnt a suitcase full of the books and he hoped that he might find and destroy any other existing copies', due to the fact that White found the quality of his writing 'embarrassingly bad' (Hubber & Smith, p 4).

        Interesting holographic exchange between Zionist Dr. Arthur Ruppin and Moshe Sharrett on publishing statistics on Jewish immigration in 1935

      no place, July 2, 1935. 4to. "Interesting holographic exchange between Zionist Dr. Arthur Ruppin and Moshe Sharrett (later Prime Minister of Israel), one page, 4to, July 2, 1935, in Hebrew by both. Ruppin writes Sharrett: ""H. Carmelli made the statistics enclosed here, and asked me if the Jewish Agency is not objecting to publish it from political reasons. I would be much obliged if you express your opinion in the matter."" Sharrett responds on the lower half of the same page ""I don't see any political damage in publishing the conclusions by a private person without the stamp of the Agency or of the German Dep[artment]. But I do see the chance of damage to the truth in publishing the conclusions regarding the immigration from Horan, that...are...given in generalization and vagueness, without accuracy in the term 'Horan' and without clarification of what is seasonal immigration of workers and what is settlement..."" He has signed with initials ""M.S."". Fine. Arthur Ruppin (1876-1943) was a Zionist thinker and leader. He was also one of the founders of the city of Tel Aviv, and a pioneering sociologist credited as being ""The Father Of Jewish Sociology"", directing Berlin's Bureau for Jewish Statistics and Demography from 1902 to 1907. In 1926, Ruppin joined the faculty of Hebrew University in Jerusalem and founded the sociology department. A building there is now named in his honor. His most celebrated sociological work is ""The Jews In The Modern World"" (1934). Moshe Sharett (born Moshe Shertok) born on October 15, 1894, died July 7, 1965 was the second Prime Minister of Israel (1954-1955), serving for a little under two years between David Ben-Gurion's two terms. Born in Kherson, Ukraine, which was then part of the Russian Empire, Moshe Sharett emigrated to Palestine in 1908. His family was one of the founders of Tel Aviv. He was a member of the first graduating class of the Herzliya Hebrew High School. He also studied in Ottoman Istanbul and attended the London School of Economics."

        Norma Facsimile della Partitura Autografa Volume Primo [-Secondo]. [Full score in autograph musical manuscript facsimile].; with introduction by Ottorino Respighi

      Roma: Real Accademia d'Italia, 1935. Published to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Bellini's death. Norma, in two acts to a libretto by Felice Romani after Alexandre Soumet's verse tragedy Norma, was first performed in Milan at the Teatro alla Scala on December 26, 1831. "Norma has always been revered above other Italian operas of the period... The title role is one of the most taxing and wide-ranging parts in the entire repertory: a noble character whose tragedy lies in her fatal love for an enemy of her people. The many different aspects of Norma's temperament are marvellously drawn by Bellini, not only in the aria 'Casta diva', but also in the superb duets with Adalgisa and Pollione, and in the ensemble in the finale of Act 2, where Bellini reaches his peak as a musical dramatist." Simon Maguire and Elizabeth Forbes in Grove Music Online.. 2 volumes. Oblong folio. Original publisher's light gray boards with dark gray printed title label to upper and spine of each volume. Volume 1: 1f. (recto half-title, verso blank), 1f. (recto title printed in red and black, verso blank), 1f. (printed notes by Ottorino Respighi regarding the opera, the autograph, and the facsimile with printed date of "23 Settembre 1935-XIII," verso note regarding facsimile reproduction), 1f. (recto facsimile reproduction of original title-page, verso blank), 147 ff. (i.e., 294 pp.) autograph musical manuscript facsimile. Volume 2: 1f. (recto half-title, verso blank), 1f. (recto title printed in red and black, verso blank), 103 ff. (i.e., 206 pp.) autograph musical manuscript facsimile. With an autograph inscription signed in the hand of mezzo-soprano and composer Elsa Respighi (1894-1996, wife of composer Ottorino Respighi) to the noted vocal coach, accompanist, conductor, and composer Luigi Ricci (1893-1981) dated "Roma April 1936" to lower outer corner of notes page to Vol. I stating that Ottorino wanted to give the present facsimile to Ricci and that Elsa is fulfilling his wish.

        H.M.S. Suffolk : third commission on the China Station 1933-1935

      Cover title: H.M.S. Suffolk "Nous maintiendrons". Hong Kong : privately printed, [1935]. Royal octavo, blue faux leather, upper board and spine lettered in gilt, illustrated title page, 164 pp, with many photographic illustrations and sketches, maps, a near fine copy. Scarce. A record of the Royal Navy cruiser H.M.S. Suffolk's third commission on the China Station. The author, R.G. Howard, was Instructor Lieutenant-Commander on the Suffolk. "This book is the outcome of a request to keep a record of the Third Commission of H.M.S. Suffolk. In jotting down these events in the form of a narrative the writer is endebted to those who kindly came forward with cartoons, photograves and verse, and it is his hope that the volumes may be of interest to all who sailed he seas in the "Suffolk" during the years 1933-35." During her time in the Far East, the Suffolk visited numerous ports including Hong Kong, Singapore, Shanghai, Nanking, Nankow, Tsingtao, Nagasaki, Kobe, Penang, Bali and Darwin. Due to the civil unrest in China at this time, the Chinese and British governments reached an agreement to secretly remove a great number of China's art treasures to Britain. H.M.S.Suffolkwas entrusted with this secret mission in 1935, as no insurance company would accept the commercial risk. She carried what was probably the richest cargo in history, her magazines crammed with priceless artefacts from the Forbidden City. OCLC records only three copies (National Maritime Museum, Greenwich; National Library of Australia; University of Hong Kong).

        Férocités sensuelles

      Collection de l’Eglantine [Jean Vergerie] 1935 - Orné de 8 hors-texte au lavis de LANY-R et d’un frontispice en rouge et noir de SAO-CHANG. Collection de l’Eglantine [Jean Vergerie], 5 rue de Palikao, 1935. In-8 broché, 14,3 x 22,7 cm. 224 pp. 1 f. n. ch. d’achevé d’imprimer. Couv. sur papier crème imprimée en noir et rouge. Fraülein Schlague est une belle dominatrice qui aime voyager. A Berlin, elle fait danser deux esclaves au rythme de son fouet ; à Londres, chez Miss Knout, elle caresse avec un sabre les fesses dodues des jeunes filles avant de donner un lavement simultané à seize d’entre elles ; à Paris, entre d’autres tortures, dont l’épilation au tison rougi, elle fesse une esclave puis la dresse au cours d’une atroce fête où il y a des empalements et où des fusées sont introduites dans l’anus des vierges, avant le feu d’artifice (!). En Orient, elle se régale de ventres à la vinaigrette, de bouchées mamelonnées, de rôtis de vierges et de tétons mousseline ; au dessert, Fraülein assiste au viol d’une esclave cousue par un orang-outang furieux. Puis, c’est la Chine, les Nouvelles-Hébrides, et toujours plus de supplices, sans interruption. Mais l’issue risque d’être fatale pour cette sadique bourrelle. Deuxième roman sadique de l’exalté Jean Vergerie, probablement l’auteur le plus sadique de l’entre-deux-guerres. Dans son catalogue, il vante les qualités singulières de son roman : « Corsettages soignés, dressages des femmes par les hommes, des hommes par les femmes, tout est inédit, cruel, infernal et voluptueux dans Férocités sensuelles » Lequel fait suite à Tortures et Lubricités. Boçn exemplaire, complet. Le frontispice, souvent absent des volumes car glissé en feuille volante, a ici été collé avant la page de titre. Petite mouillure en haut du premier plat. Dos strié avec une petite morsure en coiffe inférieure. Intérieur très bon. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
