        MAP AND HISTORY OF PEIPING

      1936. DORN, Frank. A MAP AND HISTORY OF PEIPING, formerly known as Peking; capital of provinces, princedoms, and kingdoms since 1121 B.C. [...] Tientsin-Peiping [China]: Peiyang Press, 1936. Later issue, with a Nazi flag in the legation district. A large, illustrated, color map, 81.6 x 70.6 cm ( 32 1/4 by 27 _ in.) on an 86.8 x 76 cm (34 by 30 in.) sheet that folds to 17.7 x 12.7 cm (7 by 5 in.). Originally issued with a booklet and paper slipcase, neither of which is present here. The full title of this map, which appears in a cartouche at the center of the lower edge, gives the scope of its ambition: "A map and history of Peiping; formerly known as Peking; capital of provinces, princedoms, and kingdoms since 1121 B.C.; in 1264 A.D. the capital of the Mongol Empire of Kublai Khan; made the capital of the Ming Empire and built as it is today by Yung Lo in 1421; continued as the capital of the Chinese Empire through the Ming and Ching Dynasties; and now a city which will live long in the memory of man as one of the greatest the world has ever known. Completed on this fifth day of February in the year of our Lord, Nineteen Hundred and Thirty-six." Although its ambition is tempered with great style and amusement. It is vivid pictorial map of Beijing in 1936, then called Peiping (as it was from 1928-1937), drawn in a lively, dense, cartoon style that is reminiscent of the work of cartographer Jo Mora (1876-1947), an influence on and friend of its creator Frank Dorn. The map shows the city, its surroundings, and its residents: the square Inner City, which includes the Forbidden City and the Legation Quarter, above the rectangular Outer City, is at the center. The main thoroughfares are marked and small illustrations of historical landmarks and cultural attractions fill the spaces between. Any remaining spaces are filled with vignettes of Beijing life: people walking, a beggar, carpenters, food stands on the street, motorists, bicyclists, rickshaw pullers, camel caravans, etc. In the gated Legation Quarter, where almost all European, American and Japanese diplomats, businessmen, journalists, and wealthy expatriates lived, there are nine small white rectangles with the names of hotels, clubs, and shops that would have been of interest to Western tourists. The full names and addresses of these business are listed on the verso of the map under the heading "Advertisers."

        Crusader Castles, edited by A.W. Lawrence.

      London The Golden Cockerel Press 1936 - First edition, number 24 of 1,000 copies, 2 volumes, 4to., titles printed in red, collotype frontispiece in volume 2, collotype and line facsimiles, illustrations, maps and plans after Lawrence in the text, many full-page, some colour-printed. 2 folding maps after H. Pirie-Gordon contained in a loosely-inserted envelope, original red crushed half morocco over cloth by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, spines gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut, extremities lightly rubbed, cloth lightly marked. The classic text on Crusader castles and their relation to the military architecture of the West, written by T. E. Lawrence (of Arabia) while still an undergraduate at Oxford in 1910. At the end of the nineteenth century, it was generally assumed that these castles were the prototype for the massive buildings erected in Northern France and England in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. Lawrence opposed this view: unlike most earlier writers on the subject, he was already familiar with castles in England, Wales, France and Syria as a result of a series of expeditions made on bicycle or foot, culminating in 1909 in a three-and-a-half month walking tour of the Levant. Although his thesis was to guarantee him a first-class degree in Modern History, its impact on scholarship was slower to take effect. The typescript remained virtually unknown until 1936, a year after the author's death, when it appeared in the present limited edition. O'Brien A188 & A189. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        La Septième Face Du Dé

      Paris: Éditions Jeanne Bucher 1936 - Deluxe Edition of one of the greatest Surrealist books ever published, combining radical ideas in various media, including photography, collage, and graphic design. String-tied, hand-sewn small quarto. Letter "F" of twenty-four lettered artists' copies printed on special blue paper; SIGNED on a marbled cutout affixed to the colophon by Hugnet and Marcel Duchamp, whose collage adorns the cover and incorporates a Man Ray photograph. With an extra original collage by Hugnet, as issued in the deluxe edition, also SIGNED and dated by him. An historically significant association copy linking two masters of surrealism, INSCRIBED in the month of publication by Hugnet to André Breton, the founder and pope of the movement: "A André Breton / au monde merveilleux qu'il habite / ou vivent ses poemes et leurs / ombres diamentifiers / tres affectueusements / Georges Hugnet / 27 Juin 1936" [to André Breton, to the marvelous world he inhabits, where dwell his poems and their shimmering shadows, very fondly, Georges Hugnet, 27 June 1936]." This particular copy has an idiosyncratic quirk: it is lacking one illustration, plate 7, of 20 total. Hugnet was a fastidious worker and assembled all copies himself. The missing illustration depicts a beautiful naked woman chained at the hands. Sexual tension was rampant amongst the surrealists, and Hugnet and Breton were known to have quarreled over women. The figure in the missing plate resembles Breton's wife, Simone Collinet. Whatever the reason, it is hard to imagine Hugnet omitted the illustration intentionally. Since leaving Breton's collection in the landmark Breton sale in Paris, 2003, this copy has surfaced once more at auction, in the Christie's Rare Photobook sale, New York, 2008 A little light discoloration at the edges, faint beginnings of a split no more than 1 cm at the top of the front panel by the string; overall a beautiful, near fine copy in hand-sewn wrappers as issued. The nicest copy I have seen. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        GENERAL THEORY OF EMPLOYMENT, INTEREST AND MONEY

      London: Macmillan, 1936. FIRST EDITION. This is an especially appealing copy of Keynes' masterpiece, widely considered the most influential economic treatise of the 20th century. "General Theory" is the foundational document of macroeconomics, an argument for government intervention in the economy, espousing a managed capitalism that would not suffer from the highs and lows of the laissez-faire free market, as recently experienced in the Great Depression. According to PMM, "The world-wide slump after 1929 prompted Keynes to attempt an explanation of, and new methods for controlling, the vagaries of the trade-cycle. First in 'A Treatise on Money,' 1930, and later in his 'General Theory,' he subjected the definitions and theories of the classical school of economics to a penetrating scrutiny and found them seriously inadequate and inaccurate." DNB describes Keynes (1883-1946) as a "philosopher, economist, editor, pamphleteer, company chairman, college bursar, patron of the arts and intimate friend of writers and artists, government spokesman and adviser. In each capacity he excelled." His ideological opponent Lionel Robbins called him "one of the most remarkable men that ever lived. The quick logic, the bird-like swoop of intuition, the vivid fancy, the wide vision, above all the incomparable sense of the fitness of words, all combine to make something several degrees beyond the limit of ordinary human achievement.". 220 x 148 mm.

In each capacity he excelled." His ideological opponent Lionel Robbins called him "one of the most remarkable men that ever lived. The quick logic, the bird-like swoop of intuition, the vivid fancy, the wide vision, above all the incomparable sense of the fitness of words, all combine to make something several degrees beyond the limit of ordinary human achievement.". 220 x 148 mm. (8 3/4 x 5 1/2"). 1 p.l., xii, 403 pp. FIRST EDITION. Original blue-green cloth, original printed gray dust jacket (unclipped). PMM 423. Spine of dust jacket uniformly sunned and slight frayed at top (with tiny losses), top of jacket elsewhere with a hint of soil, otherwise very fine, the covers of the jacket clean and smooth, and THE VOLUME ITSELF IN PERFECT CONDITION. This is an especially appealing copy of Keynes' masterpiece, widely considered the most influential economic treatise of the 20th century. "General Theory" is the foundational document of macroeconomics, an argument for government intervention in the economy, espousing a managed capitalism that would not suffer from the highs and lows of the laissez-faire free market, as recently experienced in the Great Depression. According to PMM, "The world-wide slump after 1929 prompted Keynes to attempt an explanation of, and new methods for controlling, the vagaries of the trade-cycle. First in 'A Treatise on Money,' 1930, and later in his 'General Theory,' he subjected the definitions and theories of the classical school of economics to a penetrating scrutiny and found them seriously inadequate and inaccurate." DNB describes Keynes (1883-1946) as a "philosopher, economist, editor, pamphleteer, company chairman, college bursar, patron of the arts and intimate friend of writers and artists, government spokesman and adviser. In each capacity he excelled." His ideological opponent Lionel Robbins called him "one of the most remarkable men that ever lived. The quick logic, the bird-like swoop of intuition, the vivid fancy, the wide vision, above all the incomparable sense of the fitness of words, all combine to make something several degrees beyond the limit of ordinary human achievement."

Jessurun describes an incident occurring as the “Hindenburg” returned to Lakehurst. In part, “…for a moment I experienced the sensation of falling through space, when as abruptly everything seemed righted and we were flying along smoothly. Upon inquiring, I found that one of the men in the Control Room had accidently pulled the wrong lever causing the Airship to go down, but had discovered his error immediately. The passengers remained very calm, and the Captain assured them there was no danger…” In his obituary in the “Chicago Daily Tribune,” Albert E. Jessurun (1864-1938), a Chicago food broker and founder of the Chicago Tenants Protective League, was described as “a veteran traveler. He was a passenger on the ill fated dirigible Hindenburg’s first round trip to Germany from Lakehurst, N.J.

        Edgar Burroughs

      October 14, 1936. Typed Letter Signed <I>"Edgar Rice Burroughs,"</I> on his corporate letterhead, one page, 8.5" x 11", Tarzana, California, October 14, 1936, to Walter Popek of Garfield, New Jersey. Light folds, else fine condition.<br /><br /> Burroughs writes to an autograph collector apologizing that he has <I>"no suitable photograph to autograph for your collection. I am, however autographing the card enclosed with your letter [not present], and am returning it herewith."</I> Burroughs adds, <I>"It is rather difficult to answer your last paragraph as, of course, my boyhood idols appear rather silly to me now, and none of my ambitions was along the writing line."</I> <br /><br />Burroughs had started life in the military, but failing the entrance exam for West Point, he ended up as an enlisted soldier in the 7th Cavarly stationed in Arizona. After being diagnosed with a heart problem, he was judged ineligible for military service and discharged in 1897. After a string of odd jobs without much direction, Burroughs began writing pulp fiction. After he made nearly $400 (roughly $8,800 today) from his selling his first story, "Under the Moons from Mars" in 1912, he soon quit his day job and began writing full-time. He remarked in 1929: "...if people were paid for writing rot such as I read in some of those magazines, [then] I could write stories just as rotten. As a matter of fact, although I had never written a story, I knew absolutely that I could write stories just as entertaining and probably a whole lot more so than any I chanced to read in those magazines."<br /><br />

        Flug und Werft. Erster bis dritter Jahrgang 1936 bis 1938 vollständig * G A N Z L E D E R A U S G A B E

      Berlin, Verlag der Deutschen Arbeitsfront, 1936 - (noch zu Nr.13163:) ". . . Die Zusammenfassung der Behandlung aller Verbrechen gegen Staat und Volk zu einem solchen ordentlichen Gerichtshof hatte die Folge, daß die Verhältnisse viel besser übersehen werden konnten, als dies mit den einzelnen Senaten des Reichsgerichtes möglich gewesen war daß außerdem eine unbedingte Einheitlichkeit der Wertung gesichert wurde. Bei der Arbeit des Volksgerichtshofes hatte sich gezeigt, dass in verschwindend wenigen Fällen die vorgekommenen hochverräterischen Angriffe allein aus dem Innern des Reiches gekommen waren. Die Ermittlungen ergaben vielmehr fast durchgängig, daß die Fäden ins Ausland führten. Von dort her kam der Anstoß; von dort her kamen die Geldmittel. In zweijähriger Arbeit hat der Volksgerichtshof seine ihm übertragenen Aufgaben erfüllt und sich durch seine wirklich volksnahe und gradlinige Rechtsprechung das allgemeine Vertrauen des deutschen Volkes erworben. Die anfangs gehässigen Stimme des Auslandes verstummten mehr und mehr. An ihre Stelle trat der bedauernde Wunsch ausländischer Berichterstatter, dass man in ihrem Lande ein solches Gericht nicht besitze"), 550-Jahr-Feier der Universität Heidelberg, Wehrdienst und Arbeitsverhältnis, Sozialpolitik im Deutschen Reich, Rückschau auf das vierte Jahr nationalsozialistischen Staatsführung, Jüdische Taktlosigkeiten, Aus der sowjetischen Luftwaffe (Zwillingsmaschinengewehr, Bomber, Scheinwerferformation), Betrachtungen über das neue Beamtengesetz, Gefährdung des Weltfriedens durch Moskau, Weltluftverkehrsstrecken, Nationalsozialistische Betriebsführung, Untergang des LZ "Hindenburg", Der Aufbau der Bewegung, ihre Gliederungen und angeschlossenen Verbände (drei Seiten zur Organisation der NSDAP), Stapellauf für das erste KdF.-Urlauberschiff "Wilhelm Gustloff", Sowjetjüdisches Verbrechen von Ibiza, Großmächte des Luftozeans, Flugsicherungsschiff "Friesenland", Vernichtung der sowjetrussischen Vernichte untereinander, Moskau fordert Zersetzung der westeuropäischen Armeen, der bolschewistische Aufmarsch im Luftraum, Flugmotorenbeschreibung: Flugmotor Bramo "Fafnir" und Mercedes-Benz "DB 600", Stahlbleche für den Flugzeugbau, Schmieröle für Flugmotoren, Bauformen von Flugmotoren, Duraluminium, allerlei Gefahren der Treibstoffe, Punktschweißen im Flugzeugbau, Klopfen von Vergasermotoren, Elektrowerkzeug im Flugzeugbau, der Großmächte 1936, Vorbeimarsch der Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler vor dem Führer am 5.Jahrestag der Machtergreifung, Bauten von Adolf Hitler, die Wehrmacht und der Arbeitsdienst Adolf Hitlers, die Jugend Adolf Hitlers, Erholung für die schaffenden Menschen Adolf Hitlers, deutscher Flieger-Handwerker Wettbewerb, Deutscher Luftwaffen-Offiziernachwuchs, Festtage in den Luftwaffenschmieden Dessau und Warnemünde, Korpsführer Christiansen, Weltjudentum als Weltkriegshetzer, Rhön-Segelflug-Wettbewerb 1938, Erstes Internationales Luftrennen des NS.-Fliegerkorps, Besichtigung der Torpedo-Werkstätten auf dem englischen Flugplatz Gosport, Stalin und die westlichen Demokratien als Beschützer der Tschechow-Slowakei, Verleihung des Deutschen Nationalpreises 1938 an die Flugzeugkonstrukteure Messerschmitt und Heinkel, Parade der deutschen Luftwaffe vor Generalfeldmarschall Hermann Göring im befreiten Sudetenland (abgebildet der Vorbeimarsch einer Fahnen-Abteilung der Fallschirmjäger im Stechschritt), Das Judentum und seine Bundesgenossen; Taufakt und Stapellauf: erster Flugzeugträger der Deutschen Kriegsmarine auf der Adolf-Hitler-Henning in Kiel am 8.November 1938 in Anwesenheit des Führers - das Schiff erhielt den Namen "Graf Zeppelin", Leistungserprobung bei Flugmotoren, Buchenholz und Kunstharzleime im Flugzeugbau, Moderne Bearbeitung von Pleuelstangen für Flugmotor; Plexiglas ein Glas aus Kunstharz usw. - Exemplar in guter Erhaltung. - Luxusausgabe, Flugwesen, europäische Luftfahrt, deutsche Rüstungsindustrie, illustrierte Bücher, deutsche / amerikanische / französische / englische / italienische Flugzeugfertigung, Fliegerei, Militä [Attributes: First Edition]
