Die deutschen Schlachthoftierärzte haben sich für ein Verbot dieser Tierschinderei ausgesprochen, die Tierschutzvereine haben unter Führung ihrer besten Köpfe für das Verbot gekämpft! Die Regierung Adolf Hitlers hat dem sofort Rechnung getragen und das betäubungslose Schlachten von Tieren verboten. Und jetzt soll dieses Verbot einfach dadurch umgangen werden, indem man die Tiere 500 m über der deutschen Grenze schächten und das Fleisch dieser gequälten Tiere nach Deutschland einführen lässt? Als ob das über der deutschen Grenze geschächtete Tier dort nicht ebensolche Qualen erleidet, als wenn es hier in Deutschland geschächtet worden wäre! . . . Hier gibt es nur eines, nämlich: Schluss damit! Und wenn das den in Deutschland lebenden Juden nicht passt, dann sollen sie den Jahwes Namen eben auswandern. Das Ansehen Deutschlands lässt es nicht zu, daß ihretwegen über der Grenze Tiere gequält werden! . . .

        [U.S.A. trilogy, comprising] The 42nd Parallel; [with] 1919; [and] The Big Money

      New York: Harper & Brothers / Harcourt, Brace [through 1936], 1930. First Printing. Hardcover. Fine/Near Fine+. Three octavo volumes (probably unread), First Printings, in the original publisher's bindings and pictorial dust jackets. The 42nd Parallel: First edition (so stated, with correct A-E code), one of only 7500 copies issued. xii,426pp. Maroon cloth spine, decorative orange paper covers with over-all silver and blue design (one of two variants—no priority established), gilt paper spine label lettered in black, top edge stained orange, plain wove orange end papers. Just about Fine (spine label tarnished, very gently shelf rubbed, but binding tight and square); in better than Near Fine jacket (lightly chipped, spine panel slightly faded, but all lettering quite legible). 1919: First Edition (so stated), one of 10,250 released. viii,473,[1]pp. Orange cloth, upper cover and spine lettered in silver, top edge stained light chocolate. Fine, bright, square and tight; in better than Near Fine jacket, lightly rubbed with a few tiny chips. The Big Money: First Edition (so stated), one of 10,000 copies printed. viii,561,[1]pp. Blue cloth, upper cover and spine lettered in silver. Fine, in just about Fine jacket with light creasing to edges. Provenance: Bonhams Sale 19972, Lot 5175, collection of Michael Lerner with his book labels laid in. Potter 12, 13, 16. Modern Library 100, 23. The 42nd Parallel, first novel in the trilogy, "opens at the dawn of a new century, and introduces both the formal divisions—Newsreel, Camera Eye, biographies, and narratives—as well as many of the characters that reappear throughout all three sections of this monumental work of American modernism. . . . track[ing] the struggles and successes of its five principle characters across an enormous geographic landscape, from the bustling urban space of New York and Chicago, past glimpses at the life of migrant labor in Middle America, to the tumultuous politics of Mexico City. According to Michael Denning, the title refers to 'an 1865 book, American Climatology, which suggested that North American storms followed the 42nd Parallel,' and the 'novel seemed to follow its characters as if they were so many storms crossing the continent.' . . . [Denning] also points out the fateful timeline for Dos Passos’ completion and publication of The 42nd Parallel. Dos Passos finished work on the first volume 'a few weeks before the Wall Street crash,' and the book 'appeared in February 1930.' . . . The 42nd Parallel therefore ends on a narrative precipice for the novel as a whole: the horror of World War I looms on U.S.A’s horizon, just as the collapse of the market economy begins to influence its composition. . . . Largely a novel of World War I, 1919 swings on what Denning calls 'the irony of apparent victory, of winning the war and losing the peace.' . . . As he does throughout U.S.A., Dos Passos intersperses his 'Camera Eye,' 'Newsreel,' and biographic sections within more traditional third person narratives. . . . In The Big Money, America rides the booms and busts of the 1920s towards the close of a tumultuous decade, the looming abyss of the Great Depression, and the novel’s final vision of a divided nation. . . . If Denning is correct in contending that 'U.S.A. is no longer a contemporary novel…It is an epitaph for an America that no longer exists,' the problem of political classes, of a divided American nation surely endures.'"

        Sagittarius Rising.

      London: Peter Davies,, 1936. Octavo. Original grey marl cloth, titles to spine in dark blue. With the dust jacket. Faint foxing to spine, top edge faintly dust toned, light offsetting to endpapers; an excellent copy in the price-clipped jacket with browned spine, nicks to extremities. First edition, first impression, of one of the classics of Great War literature, widely considered as the finest flying memoir of the war, and here offered in the exceptionally uncommon dust jacket. "At seventeen, standing 6 feet 4 inches tall and equipped with a precocious intelligence, Lewis lied about his age to join the Royal Flying Corps. He celebrated his eighteenth birthday in France, flying patrols over the western front at a time when the average life expectancy of a pilot was three weeks. On 1 July 1916 he flew the first patrol of the Somme offensive and witnessed the mile-high column of earth thrown up by the detonation of mines under the German positions. Later he duelled with the 'circus' of Manfred von Richthofen and was the last man to see the aircraft of Albert Ball VC, the allied ace who vanished in a bank of cloud. Lewis also hunted Gotha airships over London by moonlight, and in 1917 he was awarded the Military Cross for continuous bravery" (ODNB). On publication, the book was reviewed in the New Statesman by George Bernard Shaw, who Lewis had encountered while deputy director of programmes at the BBC, and who had permitted him make the first film adaptation of one of his plays. Shaw's high praise guaranteed the book's immediate success: "This is a book everyone should read. It is the autobiography of an ace, and no common ace either … This prince of pilots … had a charmed life in every sense of the word".

      Ediciones del Arbol, Cruz y Raya, Imprerso por Manuel Altolaguirre, Madrid 1936 - 1ª ed. 11x16.2. 212pp. 5h. Rústica. Alguna tenue marca en las cubiertas (ver fotos), pero muy buen ejemplar, interiores muy limpios, sin óxido, ni firmas ni subrayados. Este es el cuarto libro del poeta sevillano y recoge su obra poética desde 1924, y es un libro muy raro, escasamente encontrable en comercio; el CCPB recoge 4 ejemplares, 2 de los cuales están en la BNE, hay otros 5 (!) en la Residencia de Estudiantes - vaya lujo. WorldCat, por alguna razón, no recoge ninguno de estos, pero me pregunta si me interesa buscar 'crub realised desex cornada?'; suena un poco a los pequeños anuncios que se encontraban de antes en las cabinas de teléfonos públicos de algunos barrios de Londres, así que no me atrevo por si acaso.

A solid copy of a handsome book, some wear associated with its weight, but quite presentable. Henderson's hefty work on early pastoral families of Victoria and the Riverina has long been scarce and highly sought after for its unique content and portraits of leading families, many of whom still reside in their original homesteads. It also includes a section on the public schools of Wesley College, Geelong College, Melbourne Grammar, Geelong Grammar, Scotch College and Xavier College.

        [LAST CONSTRUCTIVIST DESIGNS] Sbornik kompozitsionnykh rabot studentov. #2 [i.e. Collection of Architectural Designs by Students. #2]

      Leningrad: Vserossiiskaia akademiia hudozhestv, 1936. 154 pp.: ill. In original publisher's wrappers. Rubbed, small tears of the spine, water stains on the margin throughout the copy. Otherwise good. Very rare. One of 1000 copies. Book design by Mikhail Minkus (1905-1963). This collection includes four student projects by Minkus of the 1928-1930 as well as works by well-known Soviet architects A. Arkin, R. Israelyan, Z. Brod, I. Rozhin, A. Velikanov, P. Abrosimov, A. Khriakov, Ia. Rubanchik, L. Poliakov. Most of the rest designed Soviet city housing in the 1930s. This is the second collection of the best constructivist works by students of the Faculty of Architecture at the Academy of Arts of the 1928-1930. This time became the highest point of constructivist period at the Academy when students created the purest constructivist projects. Overall 70 works include commune houses, factories and other designs of urban and industrial use. Students' works were never published except for the first collection of 1929 (see our Winter Catalogue 2017) and this collection of 1936. In contrast to the first collection in this edition there are works on auxiliary disciplines too (drawing - from life and architectural drawing). These designs give a vivid image of an architecture process that was taking place during 1920s in Russia. The highest point of constructivist period at the Academy was during 1928-1930 when the purest constructivist projects were created by the brightest young architects like Rubanchik, Rozhin, Minkus. But published in 1936 when Stalinist architecture was dominant these works looked out of date (yet futuristic), and compilers had to explain themselves in the introduction: "Refusal to display these materials, which draw the recent past of the architectural school, would not allow us to look once again at the path traveled by the Soviet architecture so that at the present stage of the new searches, the direction presented here will be subjected to a new criticism" (about constructivism). Amazing collection of constructivist architecture designs which were never brought to life. No copies in USA according to the Worldcat.

        History of the Second Division (Regular) AEF." WITH "History of the Second Division (Regular) AEF, Notes."

      1936 - "History of the Second Division (Regular) AEF." Text. -AND- "History of the Second Division (Regular) AEF, Notes.", and reads "Copyright 1936, The Second Division Historical Committee, Major General Preston Brown, Chairman". The work stands in two tall (13.5x8") volumes, a chunky 282+156pp; each page contains about 550 words, giving the work a length of about 250,000 words. Good copies. __+__ This is evidently an earlier version of a work that would be popularly published in 1937 as the The Second Division, American Expeditionary Force in France, 1917-1919, by J.W. Wright (text) and Oliver L. Spaulding (Notes), as the work above and this share the same copyright number. The authors are not identified in this work, and for its year of publication there are no copies located in the OCLC/Worldcat. __+__ These seem to have come from the Copyright Office to the Library of Congress. Both volumes were issued with stiffer, larger paper wrappers, but these are now detached and chipped. The text however is in excellent condition.__+__ ""The 2nd Infantry Division was first constituted on 21 September 1917 in the Regular Army. It was organized on 26 October 1917 at Bourmont, Haute Marne, France. At the time of its activation, the Indianhead Division was composed of the 3rd Infantry Brigade, which included the 9th Infantry Regiment and the 23rd Infantry Regiment; the 4th Marine Brigade, which consisted of the 5th Marine Regiment, the 6th Marine Regiment and the 6th Machine Gun Battalion; a battalion of field artillery; and various supporting units. Twice during World War I the division was commanded by US Marine Corps generals, Brigadier General Charles A. Doyen and Major General John A. Lejeune, the only time in U. S. Military history when Marine Corps officers commanded an Army division."--Wikipedia [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Chikhi i chukhi [Die Rundköpfe und die Spitzköpfe, oder Reich und reich gesellt sich gern]. Authorized translation by Valentin Stenich and Semen I. Kirsanov

      Khudozhestvennaia literatura, Moscow 1936 - Octavo (22 × 15 cm). Original pictorial embossed cloth; 197, [3] pp. Twelve full-page illustrations and thirteen vignettes by Evgenii Kogan, who has signed and inscribed this copy, most likely to the writer Lev Grigorevich Gel'man (1864-1951). Very good. Authorized Russian translation from the German manuscript of Bertold Brecht's play, known in English as "Round Heads and Pointed Heads," written shortly before Hitler was elected Reichskanzler. It has been described as "Brecht's first anti-Fascist play, one of the few which Brecht directed during his years of exile [?] Round Heads and Pointed Heads would become a lightning rod in the literary politics of exile in Moscow" (Stephen Parker, Brecht: A Literary Life, 300-301). While initially conceived as an adaptation of Shakespeare's "Measure by Measure," the rapid growth of National-Socialism prompted Brecht to depart from his original inspiration. The play became a clear parody of the Nazi's demagogery and racial politics, set in the fictive country "Peru" whose inhabitants are divided into "round heads" ("Tschuchen") and the "pointy heads" ("Tschichen"), leading to radicalization and violence. The play's genealogy and reception are complex: scheduling conflicts prevented it from being premiered in Berlin in January 1932. After going into exile in 1933, Brecht rewrote the piece for a performance in Copenhagen, which was cancelled due to censorship concerns; a planned performance directed by Piscator in Moscow in 1935-1936 did not materialize, nor was Brecht able to secure contracts in France. In November 1936, the play premiered in a Danish-language performance; its first German production would come only in 1948. This Russian translation is the first full appearance of the play in print, in any version (an English translation followed in 1937, and the first German edition of the finalized text appeared in 1938).In a curious division of labor, blank verse and prose were translated by Valentin Stenich; couplets and songs by Semen Kirsanov. Both were noted avant-garde poets in their own right. Stenich later fell victim to Stalin's Purges: he was arrested for his well-known anti-Soviet views and shot in 1938. With an effusive inscription by the Soviet artist Evgenii Kogan (1906-1983), a student of Vkhutemas and later Vladimir Favorsky. As a result, the book may subsequently have been removed from circulation. One of 3000 copies. KVK, OCLC show no copies outside of Germany (where it is held by Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin, the Brecht-Archiv at Akademie der Künste, and Deutsche Nationalbibliothek).
