        Small Archive Documenting Camp-life at the Dan Beard Camp, Boys Scout Troop 1 in Pike County, Pennsylvania, 1936-1938

      Dan Beard Camp Near Hawley, Pennsylvania, 1936. An exceptionally scarce collection of memorabilia and ephemera from Daniel Carter Beard's summer camp. Beard, one of the founders of the Boy Scouts of America built the camp on the site of his hunting lodge, which was erected in 1883. He operated the camp from the early 1920s until 1939. Camp activities and awards were based on those in Beard's Handbook for the Sons of Daniel Boone, however campers also earned Scouting rank and merit badges as the campers formed Pike County, Pennsylvania BSA Troop #1. The collection includes 1) an 8" x 10" photograph of Beard in uniform signed "Dan Beard," 2) a typed letter on official, illustrated Boy Scouts of America letterhead signed "Daniel C. Beard," 3) five multi-color camp award certificates signed "Daniel C. Beard," 4) a number of official camp letters and records regarding one of the campers, Courtland Brown, 5) four American Red Cross first aid and life saving cards awarded to Courtland Brown at the Dan Beard Camp, 6) two 8" x 10" photographs of campers, one showing them in formation and one showing them engaged in craft activities, 7) four 3.5" x 6" photographs of campers and their tents, 8) a beaded "buckskin badge" totem, 9) two postcards of Camp Lenape, which I believe succeeded the Dan Beard Camp after it closed, and 10) newspaper articles regarding Beard's 88th birthday, his death, and his funeral. All of the photographs, signed letter, certificates, and postcards are in very nice shape. Some of the other documents have marginal insect predation. The certificates and camp photographs have scrapbook page remnants on the reverse. . Ephemera. Very Good.

        Hungaria.

      Ivor, Nicholson and Watson,, London: 1936 - 8to, 302 pp, ads (iv). Bright green cloth cover. Gilt title on spine. Original pictorial dj with title in black below; title in black on spine. Chip on dj at top of spine intrudes on the tops of two letters in the title, but it is still legible. Chip on front of dj at top edge. A small Budapest bookseller's label on the inside front cover. This volume is signed by two of the short story authors, Frigyes Karinthy, and Jozsef Tersanszky, and a third author with an unidentifiable signature, and dated 29/9/37. Karinthy was a Hungarian author, playwright, journalist and poet who is known as the originator of the idea of "six degrees of separation", which he first elaborated in the 1929 story "Chains". This concept posits that every person on Earth is connected through a chain of friends or acquaintances to every other person on Earth by no more than six intermediaries, or degrees. Karinthy is also known for "Voyage to Faremido", which is a continuation of Swift's adventures of Gulliver, and "Capillaria", a satire of the struggle between the sexes. This volume is a selection of thirty short stories by thirty Hungarian authors; introducing some of them to the English reading public. Translated into English by Lawrence Wolfe and with an Introduction by Alexander Korda. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        DOLLY, ESCLAVE

      Librairie Artistique et Parisienne réunies 1936 In-8 broché. Complet des 14 illustrations hors texte en noir de Carlo, couv. illustrée. 14 x 22,5 cm. 281 pp. suivies de 4 pp. de catalogue. Un duo gagnant de la littérature fétichiste des années 30: Alan Mac Clyde, le meilleur auteur du genre, le plus inventif, illustré par le très raffiné Carlo. Le personnage-titre avait déjà fait des apparitions dans des précédents textes de Mac Clyde comme "Dressage", "Servitude" et "Cuir et peau". D'autres personnages viennent du "Cuir triomphant" et "Cravache et Fanfreluches". Comme le remarque Robert Mérodack, auteur d'une étude sur Carlo, « à l'énumération des tourments infligés succèdent désormais des notations psychologiques et un lyrisme que les trois premiers romans du cycle ne laissaient pas prévoir. Paradoxalement, cet indéniable recul dans l'audace sadomasochiste préfigure L'"Histoire d'O". Alan Mac Clyde n'écrit pas comme Pauline Réage, mais il y a dans les situations, le ton, l'ampleur des phrases, l'emploi contenu de mots suggestifs, tous les éléments que Pauline Réage ne fera que d'affiner et de doser avec génie. » (Carlo, éditions Dominique Leroy, 1984). Carlo fait preuve d'autant d'inventivité dans le sadomasochisme et le fétichisme des tenues de satin noir, de chevreau glacé et de cuir verni. Mac Clyde offre un récit d'aventures exotiques baigné dans une délirante inspiration SM (femme-crachoir, estrade pivotante avec des femmes exhibées, femmes enchaînées à un piano, etc.). Un excellent texte, trépidant jusque dans ses méandres psychologiques et Carlo au meilleur de sa forme. ouverture conservée contracollée sur une couverture d'attente, dos et second plat refait: cette restauration a été soigneusement exécutée par une relieuse professionnelle

Written in the aftermath of the great depression, Keynes's masterwork is generally regarded as probably the most influential social science treatise of the century; it quickly and permanently changed the way the world looked at the economy and the role of government in society.

        Calls, Sounds and Merchandise of the Peking Street Peddlers

      Beijing,,: The Camel Bell [overprinted with: The Peking Bookshop], 25th year of the Republic of China, i.e., 1936.. Oblong quarto, printed in Chinese style on double leaves, with 61 coloured lithograph plates and 16 tipped-in photographic illustrations, a paper pattern and a diagram; original silk-covered boards in fine condition; 1947 ownership inscription on front endpaper. First edition of this delightful study of Beijing street peddlers; a significant resource for the study of a disappeared way of life.As Feng Yi has noted (The sound of images: Peddlers' calls and tunes in Republican Peking, 2008, online resource), Constant's book was the first collection of such images to be published. Constant's work and Qi Rushan's ?????? ('Gudu shiyue tukao', A pictorial study of city music in the ancient capital), also published in 1936, 'are probably the only two such records on peddlers, except for short series of images and notices in Peking's popular newspapers... One can find in the press and in various publications this sense that something had been or was about to be lost in Peking's culture, and that it was time to make a record of it before it became history... The first collection of images on peddlers was published by Victor Samuel Constant. He prepared this work for an M.A. degree at the California College in China and published it in 1935 under the title Calls, sounds and merchandise of the Peking street peddlers. The author states that his work includes the most important and most common peddlers who went around Peking streets. Sixty-five peddlers are presented in the book (4 in photographs), with a description of their calls, characteristic sounds and what they have to sell or offer as service...'. As Constant says of his own work, 'Some call out their wares in a musical voice or song calculated to please the hearer. Others have a loud or discordant cry which grates on the nerves as though the devil himself had something to sell.'The coloured lithographs all take a double form with an image of the peddler accompanied by another depiction of his wares or the devices used to accompany his call. The photographs depict actual peddlers in street performances.

Inscribed in the year of publication, Ayn Rand presented this book to Katharine Hepburn on a studio set in 1936. June Roberts, a Hollywood hairdresser who worked with Hepburn on a number of movies, was with her at the time Rand presented the book and Hepburn gave it to Roberts. Rand's inscription refers to the main character in We the Living, Kira Argounova, the young daughter of a bourgeois capitalist whose independent spirit reacts against her background. Rand later contended that Hepburn was the ideal actress to portray Dagny Taggart, the heroine in Atlas Shrugged.
