      Heinrich Hoffmann, Berlin 1937 - Large quarto (11 3/4 x 9 1/4"). 252, [2]pp. Original quarter brown cloth over photo-illustrated paper covered boards, with gold lettering to spine, and red and black lettering to front cover. Profusely illustrated with numerous annotated sepia-toned photogravures glorifying life in the Third Reich, McClatchie's "Sieh: Das Herz Europas" remains to this day the most powerful pro-Nazi photobook ever published by an American citizen.

When he returned to Germany for the 1936 Olympics, he was so impressed with the 'positive changes' under Hitler's regime that he tried to convince other countries such as Spain and France to adopt a similar political system.The photographs featured in this book intend to depict a hard-working German people united behind their fuehrer, and pleased with the industrial, social and technical changes that had taken place since the Nazis gained power.Binding slightly foxed along edges, and rubbing to corners. Minor foxing to endpapers. Title page missing. Binding in overall good to good+, interior in very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        BLAUE LICHT, DAS [BLUE LIGHT, THE] (1932; 1937 reissue)

      Sokal 1937 - Vintage original 8.5 x 11" (21 x 28 cm.) double weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, Germany. Leni Riefenstahl, Mathias Wieman, Beni Fuhrer, Max Holzboer, Martha Mair, dir: Leni Riefenstahl; Sokal. A beautiful character portrait of the legendary actress, director, writer, editor and producer: Leni Riefenstahl. Riefenstahl performed all these creative tasks on this film for her own production company. This is the story of Junta, a woman hated by the people of her village, who suspect her of being a witch. She is the only person who can climb the nearby mountains and she has discovered the mysteries of the blue light during her climbs. She is cast out of the town and goes to live in the mountains. She shares the secret of the blue light with one man, but he betrays her. Groundbreaking filmmaking at the time, it was an early sound film (though a silent version was also made) to be shot on high mountain locations and employed the people who lived in the mountains as the supporting players. Riefenstahl had made a series of mountain films with director Arnold Fanck in the prior years and was now ready to make her own films. So impressed by this film was Adolf Hitler that he asked Riefenstahl to make TRIUMPH OF THE WILL. Riefenstahl's production logo is at the bottom left corner of this image, the title at center and the logo for Degato, the German theatrical distributor is at right bottom corner. There is also the German blind stamp present at the upper right side of the image. On the back is an ink stamp with German distributor's name and address. Still number 3 shows Riefenstahl as Junta at a hearth. Minor crease at top left corner and minor wear at very too mid right side edge. ABOUT FINE.

        Truman, who began playing the piano when he was ten, writes his future Treasury Secretary John Snyder to tell his 11-year-old daughter Drucie “about the Chopin waltz, Opus #42. It will be quite some time before she can play it but there is a pretty easy waltz over in the middle of it that she can play…”

      Washington, D.C., November 4, 1937. 8" x 10.5". "Typed Letter Signed “Harry” as U.S. Senator, 1p, 8” x 10.5”. On watermarked Senate stationery, Washington, D.C., November 4, 1937. To John W. Snyder, Manager, Reconstruction Finance Corporation, St. Louis. Four file holes in upper margin. Fine Condition.In full, “Appreciate yours of the Third very much, and you can rest assured I am not running a race with the Governor, and I am not right sure I am on the right track if the Post-Dispatch says I am.” The “St. Louis Post-Dispatch” was an outspoken critic of Truman, associating him with Kansas City Boss Tom Pendergast’s political machine and constantly attacking his integrity. During the Truman presidency, the newspaper was one of his most outspoken critics.Truman continues, “I wrote to the Commanding General of the Seventh Corps Area regarding J.K. and I believe it would be a good plan for him to do the same thing. I have not had a reply from the General as yet which makes me believe he is making an effort to accomodate me.” J.K. was James K. Vardaman, Jr., son and namesake of the late Mississippi Governor and U.S. Senator. J.K. served in both the Field Artillery and the Army Reserves with Truman who later appointed him his first Naval Aide to the President (1945-1946).Truman then writes, “I sent Drucie, some music the other day from Richmond. You tell her if she will play the theme to that Sonata and the first and fourth variations and wind up with the theme again she will have a very pretty piece. That Sonata has been changed from No. 9 to No. 16, and I had a heck of a time trying to find it because the publishers had changed the number. I told her about the Chopin waltz, Opus #42. It will be quite some time before she can play it but there is a pretty easy waltz over in the middle of it that she can play. Please remember me to Mrs. Snyder.” The Snyders’ 11-year-old daughter Drucie and Truman’s 13-year-old daughter Margaret were close friends; they later were bridesmaids at each other’s wedding.According to the Truman Library, “One youngster who never needed to be forced to practice his piano lessons was Harry Truman. He used to get up at 5 o'clock in the morning to practice for two hours. When he became a man, music remained his first passion after politics, and he often said that if he had been a good pianist he never would have become President. ‘I missed being a musician,’ he said, ‘and the real and only reason I missed being one is because I wasn't good enough. His mother became his first teacher when he was about 10. She sent him for a short time to a neighborhood teacher and then to Mrs. E. C. White, a Kansas City teacher who had studied under Theodore Leschetitzky, the renowned European master. Lifelong friend Charlie Ross said, ‘He didn't lack spunk when he braved the jeers of the boys to go regularly to his music teacher, carrying his music roll.’ At the age of 15 he suddenly quit taking piano lessons, to the distress of his mother and Mrs. White, who had visions of him as a concert pianist, but Harry realized he wasn't good enough for that.“His favorite composers were Mozart, Beethoven and Chopin, and he liked the music of Florodora, Strauss waltzes, Gershwin and Debussy. In October, 1945, at a county fair in Caruthersville, Missouri, Truman played the piano for a group of Methodist Women and winked at them as he said, ""When I played this, Stalin signed the Potsdam Agreement.’” John W. Snyder’s close friendship with Harry S. Truman began in 1928 when Truman was a Jackson County Judge. They served together in the U.S. Army Reserves after World War I. When Lt. Col. Truman was promoted to Colonel, Major Snyder was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel of Col. Truman’s Missouri Regiment, the 381st Field Artillery, 102nd Division. Snyder was later Assistant to the Director of the Reconstruction Finance Corporation (1940-1944) and served President Truman as his Federal Loan Administrator (1945), Director of the Office of Mobilization and Reconversion (1945-1946), and Secretary of the Treasury (1946-1953)."

      1937 - about a film sponsored by the Society which has been censored by the London County Council, It starts that "As long ago as 1923, the report of the 'Trevethin Committee on Venereal Disease' was published by the ministry of Health, the findings . were definitely favourable to the policy of the education of the public in scientific methods of Prevention, but not only has nothing been done . the only organisation working for the diffusion of such knowledge, has met with unremitting hostility ." they ask the editor to bring public notice to "a striking instance of this . This Society is sponsoring a film entitled 'The Price of Ignorance' and application was made to the L.C.C. for authority to exhibit it . This authority was granted subject to the excision of all reference to the possibility of Prevention, so that those seeing the film, (now showing at the Rialto, Coventry St.) are not permitted to learn that these diseases can be prevented, and even the address of the Society has been deleted. This is, we suggest, a particularly harmful kind of censorship, and one entirely out of keeping with contemporary thought .", 1 side A4, National Society of the Prevention of Venereal Disease headed paper, London, 13th December The pencil markings appear to be the editor's notes relating to how the letter should be published and the order in which the signatures should appear.

        Schönheit im Olympischen Kampf [Beauty in the Olympic Games]

      Berlin: Deutschen Verlag, 1937. FIRST EDITION, in exceptionally fine dust jacket and extremely rare original glassine, of Riefenstahl's classic monument to the athletes of the 1936 Olympics. Profusely illustrated with 273 black-and-white photographs. "With the German photographer Leni Riefenstahl, sports imagery rose to new aesthetic heights. Commissioned by Joseph Goebbels, she brought her considerable visual and organizational skills to bear on both the photographing and filming the 1936 Olympic Games. Although the film Olympiad has become an acknowledged classic, her book of photographs, Schönheit im Olympischen Kampf, no less spectacular in its own way, is less known. Sometimes Riefenstahl relied on poses modelled on the antique Greek ideal, faithful to Hitler's belief that modern Teutonic man was 'feeling closer to classical antiquity' than he had 'in possibly a thousand years'. But far more original were her depictions of superbly athletic bodies soaring gracefully through the air and knifing effortlessly through the water. Riefenstahl applied certain devices characteristic of the new German photography- strong diagonals, tight croppings, and bird's-eye and worm's-eye views. No longer was the camera an earthbound witness; it took to the air and the water with the athletes" (William A. Ewing, The Body). Roth 96: ("These are such exquisite, such transcendentally beautiful images of athletes, that one almost forgets their context.")Berlin: Deutschen Verlag, (1937). Quarto, original cloth, original dust jacket, original glassine; custom box. With picture captions in English, German, Spanish, and French. A few spots to text block edge, cloth nearly pristine; dust jacket in superb condition with only a hint of edgewear; glassine with a few small chips and tears. Extremely rare in such fine condition - the nicest copy we've seen. Fine / Fine.

        Folklore of Capitalism

      1937. First Edition . ARNOLD, Thurman. The Folklore of Capitalism. New Haven and London: Yale University Press and Humphrey Milford, Oxford University Press, 1937. Octavo, original red cloth gilt, original dust jacket. $1500.Scarce first edition of ArnoldÂ’s “exciting and stimulating” case for a revitalized American economic and political “creed,” the copy of New Deal economist Alan R. Sweezy.In 1930, Arnold joined the legal faculty at Yale, where he ""wrote two influential books, The Symbols of Government (1935) and The Folklore of Capitalism (1937), which catapulted him to the forefront of the national intellectual arena. In Symbols, Arnold argued that laws were not collections of immutable truths but rather mental representations of symbolic thinking. Arnold refashioned that argument and carried it a step further in Folklore, wherein he asserted that social progress was possible only through a pragmatic (rather than experimental) approach to government. Reassuring the nervous brokers on Wall Street that his was essentially a conservative diagnosis of America's economic and social ills were Arnold's assurances that there was no reason to root out capitalism; what civilization needed was fresh folklore for the common man and new vitalized myths."" Shortly after Folklore's publication Arnold was appointed assistant Attorney General. ""Many historians and commentators have referred to Arnold's tenure at Justice as the most effective of antitrust enforcement in U.S. history"" (ANB). ""Every reader will find it exciting and stimulatingÂ… No student of the theory of government can afford to ignore its novel approach to fundamental problems"" (LQR 54:603). NYU, 931. Ownership signature of economist Alan R. Sweezy, who in the 1930s helped establish Social Security and later worked at the Federal Reserve Board. Publisher's reply card laid in.Book fine with spine gilt bright. Original dust jacket with mild toning to spine and light edge-wear. A desirable and very nearly fine copy, with notable economic provenance.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1937 - 1937 Wisden Original Hardback

      1937. Hi, This lot is an Original 1937 Hardback Wisden . It is in very good condition, the era of 1933 to 1937 were not the best of hardbacks as Wisden swapped materials in 1933, it resulted in poorer quality Wisdens but I am pleased to say that this 1937 is far better than most for the year. The front and spine gilt is excellent for a poor year and the boards are very good, there are a few light marks mainly to the front but still nice boards. The pastedowns are fabulous and very yellow, the hinges are excellent and the internal pages are very clean. Some spotting to the page block else would be a 9. By far superior to many of the same year. Nice photoplate, Hard to find in good condition, this is not too far off excellent.

        Sämtliche Werke nach Epochen seines Schaffens (Leinenausgabe): MÜNCHNER AUSGABE [Gebundene Ausgabe] von Karl Richter (Herausgeber), Herbert G. Göpfert (Herausgeber), Norbert Miller (Herausgeber), Gerh

      Die MÜNCHNER AUSGABE bietet - nach den Epochen seines Lebens und Schaffens geordnet - das gesamte dichterische und autobiographische Werk Goethes, sämtliche Schriften zu Literatur, Kunst und Naturwissenschaft, eine breite Auswahl aus den amtlichen Schriften, die Briefwechsel mit Schiller und Carl Friedrich Zelter sowie die Gespräche mit Eckermann. Jeweils ein Band vereint (bei Bearf in mehreren Teilbänden), was entstehungsgeschichtlich zusammengehört. So wird die wechselseitige Erhellung unterschiedlicher Werkschichten sichtbar. Für den Kommentar ergeben sich daraus neue Möglichkeiten. Neue Wege geht die Ausgabe auch mit dem dargebotenen Text: Sie vertraut nicht mehr der Ausgabe letzter Hand, sondern bemüht sich, auf bessere frühere Drucke oder die Handschriften zurückzugehen. In Textgestalt, Anordnung und Kommentar entsteht so ein farbiges und historisch differenziertes Goethe-Bild, das sich der neuen Begegnung und aktuellen Aneignung anbietet. Eine Ausgabe, die - von besten Sachkennern betreut - sowohl den neuesten wissenschaftlichen Standard repräsentiert als auch leserfreundlich angelegt ist: eine Ausgabe für jeden, der im OEuvre des großen Klassikers überraschende, erhellende Entdeckungen machen möchte.Es gibt eine Leinen- und eine Lederausgabe. Die Leinenausgabe ist in blaugrünes Feincanvas gebunden. Die Rückenprägung ist Echtgold, der Kopffarbschnitt hellgrau. Für die Lederausgabe wird ein naturfarbenes Volleder von schottischen Hochlandschafen verarbeitet. Das Bütten-Vorsatzpapier ist blaugrün, der Kopffarbschnitt Echtgold. Das blaugrüne Lederrückenschild ist mattgold geprägt. Über den Autor: Norbert Miller, geboren 1937 in München, studierte Literatur- und Musikwissenschaft sowie Kunstgeschichte in Frankfurt/ Main und Berlin. Von 1962 bis 1965 war er als Assistent an der Universität Frankfurt/Main tätig. Ab 1973 hatte Müller ein Ordinariat für Vergleichende Literaturwissenschaft an der TU Berlin inne, bis 2004 war er geschäftsführender Direktor des Philosophie, Literatur-, Wissenschafts- und Technikgeschichte. Seit 2006 ist er emeritiert. Er ist Mitherausgeber der Zeitschrift Sprache im technischen Zeitalter und der Münchner Ausgabe der Werke Goethes. Als Autor veröffentlichte er u.a. 2002 Der Wanderer. Goethe in Italien, 2009 Die ungeheure Gewalt der Musik. Goethe und seine Komponisten und zuletzt 2012 Fonthill-Abbey. Die dunkle Welt des William Beckford. Johann Wolfgang Goethe (geadelt 1782) wurde am 28. August 1749 in Frankfurt am Main geboren und starb am 22. März 1832 in Weimar. Sein Werk prägte die Epochen des Sturm und Drang und der deutschen Klassik. Es umfasst sämtliche literarischen Gattungen, dazu autobiographische Schriften und naturwissenschaftliche Studien. Goethe stand in regem Kontakt zu allen geistigen Größen seiner Zeit und seine Wirkung auf die Literatur ist bis heute ungebrochen. Nicht nur im eigenen Land gilt er als größter Dichter der Deutschen. Das hier verwirklichte Editionsprinzip der Herausgabe von sämtlichen Werken Goethes in der Reihenfolge ihrer Entstehung ist gewöhnungsbedürftig, sind doch alle anderen Werkausgaben nach dem Prinzip der literarischen Gattung aufgebaut. Einzige Ausnahme sind die Briefwechsel mit Schiller und Zelter, die sinnvollerweise in geschlossener Form vorliegen. Ohne den Registerband würde man sich somit auch nicht immer zurechtfinden. Die Ausstattung der einzelnen Bände mit Abbildungen und Kommentarteil ist offenbar nicht nach einheitlichen Kriterien erfolgt. So ergibt sich unabhängig von der Bedeutung der behandelten Werke das eine oder andere Ungleichgewicht. Vielleicht macht sich hier die Konkurrenz zu der gleichzeitig erschienenen Frankfurter Ausgabe bemerkbar, welche die Herausgeber durch ihre Qualität und teilweise umfangreichen Kommentare sicher unter Druck setzte. Die Tendenz zu größeren Kommentarteilen erhöhte sich nämlich im Laufe der Edition der einzelnen Bände. Insgesamt muss man aber feststellen, dass die Münchener Ausgabe diese Herausforderung bestanden hat. Qualität und Umfang der Kommentare sind nicht weit von denen der Frankfurter Ausgabe entfernt, ja übertreffen hier und dort diese sogar. In mancher Hinsicht sind die Kommentare so ausführlich, dass man die Ausgabe sogar wie ein Lexikon für die Goethezeit benutzen kann. Preislich aber ist die Münchener Ausgabe um einiges günstiger als die Frankfurter. Ob man aber über die zwar nicht so umfangreiche aber doch noch wesentlich günstigere Hamburger Ausgabe hinaus eine noch umfangreichere Werkausgabe benötigt, muss jeder selbst entscheiden. Gesamtumfang 34914 Seiten, davon 14022 Seiten Einführungstexte, Dokumente, Kommentare und Registerr 560 Abbildungen.Der detaillierte Inhalt ist den Angaben zu den Einzelbänden zu entnehmen.
