      Shanghai: Tipografiia "Grafik" 1936 - Octavo (21.5 x 14 cm). Original mustard cloth; VII, 240 pp. Title in Chinese and Russian. Boards lightly soiled; spine sunned; a few pencil annotations and discrete ownership stamp of one George Ivanoff; overall a very good copy. Introductory textbook of Shanghainese, or the Shanghai Dialect, one of the forms of Wu Chinese spoken in Shanghai and its environs (according to the preface, it was at the time the native tongue of twenty million Chinese). Largely drawing on Pott's "Lessons in the Shanghai Dialect", Lev A. Slobodchikov (1910-1983), an engineer and Chinese scholar, prepared this primer for fellow Russian emigres in Shanghai. After the Japanese Occupation of Manchuria, Shanghai became the new center of the Russian emigration in the Far East, explaining the need for the present work. The book is structured into individual lessons that introduce new vocabulary alongside new grammar concepts, with translation exercises and pointers on pronunciation.

        Florence Foster Jenkins - Record Humorously Signed and Inscribed by Samuel Barber

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Rare privately issued gramophone recording of Florence Foster Jenkins, inscribed by Barber on the label "This great example of American singing - for Herbert - with warmest greetings / Sam Barber."<br>From the collection of Manfred Ibel (to whom Barber dedicated the piano concerto), but likely inscribed originally to Herbert Graf, stage director at the Metropolitan Opera House from 1936 to 1949.<br>Florence Foster Jenkins, an American girl born in 1868 in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania to a well-to-do family, has become a legend as "the world's worst opera singer."  She made some vanity 78 rpm records for the Mel-o-tone label during World War Two, and in October 1944 hired Carnegie Hall for a recital.  The bad reviews that resulted from that recital were said to break her heart and she died a few weeks later at age 76, but the recordings have kept her name and her art alive.  In recent years there have been several plays about her, and this year there are three full-length movies.  The first, a French comedy-drama titled "Marguerite" was released earlier this year.  A second produced in Britain and starring Meryl Streep as Jenkins will be released in the USA in a few weeks, and later this year a German docu-drama starring soprano Joyce di Donato as Jenkins will premiere.  Two different full-length biographies of Jenkins have appeared within the last weeks in England, by Darryl Bullock and the other by Jasper Rees.

        Liquid-Propellant Rocket Development.

      Washington D. C.: The Smithsonian Institution,, 1936. Octavo (pp. 10). Original pale brown printed wrappers, stitched as issued. 11 half-tone plates, one diagram in the text. With the neat library stamps of Phillips University Library, Enid, Oklahoma (to front and back cover) and the Zollars Memorial Library (front cover) with the accession date of 26 March 1936. An excellent copy. First edition, first printing, of a key paper by the father of modern rocket propulsion Robert H. Goddard (1882-1945). "Like the Russian hero Konstantin Tsiolkovsky and the German pioneer Hermann Oberth, Goddard worked out the theory of rocket propulsion independently . . . Having explored the mathematical practicality of rocketry since 1906 and the experimental workability of reaction engines in laboratory vacuum tests since 1912, Goddard began to accumulate ideas for probing beyond the Earth's stratosphere. His first two patents in 1914, for a liquid-fuel gun rocket and a multistage step rocket, let to some modest recognition and financial support from the Smithsonian Institution . . . With an eye toward patentability of demonstrated systems and with the aid of no more than a handful of technicians, Goddard achieved a series of workable liquid-fuel flights starting in 1926. Through the patronage of Charles A. Lindbergh, the Daniel and Florence Guggenheim Foundation, and the Carnegie and Smithsonian institutions, the Goddards and their small staff were able to move near Roswell, New Mexico. There, during most of the 1930s, Goddard demonstrated, despite many failures in his systematic static and flight tests, progressively more sophisticated experimental boosters and payloads, reaching speeds of 700 miles per hour and altitudes above 8000 feet in several test flights" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). This is one of only two papers on rocketry published by the reticent Goddard, the other being "A Method of Reaching Extreme Altitudes" (1919). Scarce in commerce and in British and Irish institutional libraries (Copac locates copies at Aberdeen, National Aerospace Library, and Bristol only), well represented on OCLC.

        Thus speaks the Talmud :the case of Judahism [sic] vs. Christianity, with evidence from the Jewish rabbi scriptures.

      Twentieth Century Crusaders [1936], [Place of publication not identified] - Libraries worldwide that own item: 11. Anti-Semitic pamphlet. Published by William Dudley Pelley, head of the Silver Shirts, a pro fascist group in the United States in the 1930s. William Dudley Pelley (March 12, 1890 - June 30, 1965) was an American extremist and spiritualist who founded the anti-semitic Silver Legion in 1933 and ran for President in 1936 for the Christian Party. Pelley became a journalist and gained respect for his writing skills, his articles eventually appeared in national publications. Two of his short stories received O. Henry awards, "The Face in the Window" in 1920, and "The Continental Angle" in 1930. Following World War I, Pelley traveled throughout Europe and Asia as a foreign correspondent, spent time in Russia and witnessed atrocities during the Russian Civil War. He developed a deep hatred for Communism and Jews, whom he believed were planning to conquer the world. Returning to the U.S. in 1920, he a Hollywood screenwriter and wrote 2 Lon Chaney films The Light in the Dark (1922) and The Shock (1923). By 1929 he became disillusioned with the film industry, and moved to Asheville, North Carolina. In 1928, Pelley said he had a near-death experience, detailed in an article for American Magazine called "My Seven Minutes in Eternity." In later writings, he wrote that during this event, he met with God and Jesus Christ, who instructed him to undertake the spiritual transformation of America. He claimed he was able to levitate and see through walls. When the Great Depression struck he became active in politics, moved to Asheville, founded Galahad College and Galahad Press. When, Adolf Hitler became Chancellor of Germany on 1/30/1933 Pelley, an admirer of Hitler, founded the Silver Legion, an extremist and antisemitic organization whose followers¿known as the Silver Shirts and Christian Patriots, wore Nazi-like silver uniforms. Biographer Scott Beekman notes that Pelley was "one of the first Americans to create an organization celebrating the work of Adolf Hitler." He founded chapters of the Silver Legion in almost every state iof the union and gained many followers. He held mass rallies, lectures, and public speeches country wide promoting anti-Communism, antisemitism, racism, jingoism, isolationism and pyramidology. He opposed Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the New Deal, founded the Christian Party and ran as its candidate for president in 1936. Pelley engaged in a long dispute with the United States House of Representatives' Dies Committee, predecessor to the House Un-American Activities Committee. In 1940, federal marshals raided Pelley's Asheville headquarters, with his followers there arrested, and his property seized. Despite serious financial and material setbacks to his organization resulting from lengthy cthe New Deal. He founded the Christian Party and ran as its candidate for president in 1936.

In 1940, federal marshals raided Pelley's Asheville headquarters, with his followers there arrested, and his property seized. Despite serious financial and material setbacks to his organization resulting from lengthy court battles, he continued to oppose FDR, accuseing him of being a warmonger. The attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941 led Pelley to disband the Silver Legion, but claimed that the devastation of the Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor was worse than the government claimed. In 1942 he was charged with treason and sedition and found guilty of sedition, obstructing military recruiting and fomenting insurrection within the military. He was sentenced to 15 years in prison and was paroled after 8 years. In his final years, Pelley dealt with charges of securities fraud that had been brought against him while he had lived in Asheville, North Carolina. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
