        The Revolution Betrayed.

      New York: Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc.,, 1937. What is the Soviet Union and Where is it Going? Translated by Max Eastman. Octavo. Original black cloth, spine lettered in gilt and black on a red ground, top edge red, others untrimmed. With the dust jacket. Spine of price-clipped jacket sunned, some old tape repairs on verso, nicks, chips and tears. A very good copy. First US edition, first printing. Signed by Trotsky on a specially prepared sheet tipped in before the half-title: "Leon Trotsky, Coyoacán, 1 Apr 1937". One of a very small number of copies of an unnumbered limited edition, each signed and dated in the same manner. There is no formal statement of limitation for this issue, but copies do not appear frequently and Trotsky's popularity in the America of the New Deal was far from strong. We find it hard to believe that more than 150-200 copies were so issued. The Revolution Betrayed is Trotsky's major critique of Stalinism, and marked the end of the American intelligentsia's romance with Russian communism. Trotsky was living in exile in the Coyoacán district of Mexico City and in April of 1937 an independent "Commission of Inquiry" into the charges made against him and others at the "Moscow Trials" was held in Coyoacán, with the American philosopher John Dewey as chairman.

        [Photo Album]: Navy World War II

      South Pacific, Connecticut, and New Jersey. [circa 1937- early 1940s]. Oblong quarto. Measuring 10" x 12". String-tied cream leather over paper boards with "Photographs" stamped on the front cover. A collection of 136 black and white or sepia toned photographs measuring between 1.5" x 2" and 5" x 7" affixed to stiff black paper with captions. Near very good, the album has a detached front board with very good or better photographs, some with tape repairs. A photo album kept by a Navy seaman while serving in the Pacific in World War II featuring portraits and photos of his comrades. The photos show men working on ships including a nice amateur photo of sailors staring into the sunset. Two photos show a Navy baseball game on the beach likely somewhere in the South Pacific. A few photographs from the attack on Pearl Harbor are included but they appear to be contemporary reprints. The second half of the album shows photos of the sailor back in the United States in 1945 visiting people in Danubury, Connecticut, many times while still posing in uniform, as well as a trip to the Atlantic City beach with his girlfriend as well as Lake Oberst in Glassboro, New Jersey. An interesting collection of a sailor's wartime memories including friend's portraits and his joyous return home. .

        The Commerce Clause Under Marshall, Taney and Waite, Inscribed by FF.

      1937. With a Warm Inscription by Frankfurter Frankfurter, Felix [1882-1965]. The Commerce Clause Under Marshall, Taney and Waite. Chapel Hill: The University of North Carolina Press, 1937. 114 pp. Lightly shelfworn cloth in moderately worn and lightly edgeworn and moderately soiled dust jacket, faint dampstaining to rear panel. Warm author inscription, most likely to Robert H. Jackson, signed "Felix," interior otherwise clean. * First edition.

"Bob" is probably Robert H. Jackson [1894-1954], one of Frankfurter's closest friends. In 1936 Jackson was the assistant attorney general heading the Tax Division of the Department of Justice. He was attorney general from 1937 to 1941 and an associate justice of the Supreme Court from 1941 to 1954.

Paul Fussell recently suggested that what Ulysses is to the novel and what The Waste Land is to poetry, Byron's book is to travel writing.

      Paris, 1936 and 1937. - Large 4to. Altogether (¾+1 =) 1¾ pp. on 2 ff. With one addendum (s. b.). To Belgian author, filmmaker and documentarist Henri Storck, telling him about his imminent making of 'La Grande illusion' and expressing his wish to come and visit him in Brussels as well as to work with his Club du Cinéma (28. X. 1936). - "J'aurais dû commencer déjà depuis longtemps un film 'La Grande Illusion' et je ne le commence que lundi prochain. C'est vous dire que je ne serai libre ni le 10, ni le 22 Février. [ ] Remarquez que, en dehors du désir de collaborer à votre Club à l'occasion d'une séance, je grille d'envie d'aller à Bruxelles que je ne connais pas du tout. C'est assez ridicule quand on habite Paris., c'est-à-dire à 3 ou 4 heures de chemins de fer. [ ]" (20. I. 1937). - One letter with printed letterhead, the other with punched holes (not touching text). Accompanied by an ALS from Belgian screenwriter Charles Spaak to Renoir in which Spaak accuses the addressee of having cheated him out of the rights of "La Grande illusion", for which Spaak had been a coauthor: "Vieux traitre ! [ ] tu m'a volé les trois quarts de mes droits d'auteur. Elle fut belle, la séance où le père Rolmer a sorti les papiers et les a mis sous le nez de Devalde qui était de la couleur de ce papier. Et Rolmer se marrait derrière son bureau : - Renoir vous a roulé! Devalde ne disait rien, n'en croyant pas ses yeux. Mais ton papier dégueulasse était mal foutu. Tu leur donnais les droits de " la grande Illusion " pour dix ans [ ] Mais je n'avais vendu mes droits que pour sept ans Impossible de resortir le film ! Demande à Devalde si c'est vrai : on m'a proposé de me rembourser [ ] ce que tu m'avais volé ! On m'a proposé de me laisser tous les droits pendant trois ans. J'ai refusé ! J'ai voulu ignorer [ ] qu'on te donne soixante pour cent des droits [ ] puisque que tu avais mis le film en scène. [ ] Tu as touché le fric dont je te faisais cadeau et tu ne m'as pas écrit pour me remercier. Tu rentres à Paris, [ ] à cause de certaines explications qu'on pourrait te demander Tout se passe bien ! On a oublié les vieilles histoires et on fait semblant ! Et tout de suite, tu [ ] trahis un copain ! [ ]". - A certain Rolmer had financed "La Grande illusion". Jean Devalde (1888-1982) was a Belgian actor. - Mounted on paper.

        2 je 2-seitige, eigenhändige Briefe und ein eigenhändig gewidmetes Foto von [19]37,, beide Briefe im Format DIN A5, jeweils einfach gefaltet,

      1937 - der Original-Fotoabzug in Gestalt einer Postkarte datiert mit oct. (19)37 zeigt Valery schreibend an einem Tisch sitzend, Beide Briefe sind an den Journalisten und Verleger Hans Paeschke (1911 - 1991) gerichtet, wobei Paeschke im 1. Brief (mit eingeprägter Adresse "Paris, le 24 Oct. (19)37") unbenannt bleibt. Valery lernte Paeschke kennen, als dieser von 1932 - 1934 Sekretär der "Deutsch-franz. Gesellschaft" war. Valery bedankt sich im ersten Brief für ein Schreiben Paeschkes und nimmt Bezug auf ein Treffen der beiden und ein Gespräch, in dem man auch über die Entwicklungen in Deutschland sprach. Der 2. Brief ("Dimanche 20.12 (19)37") ist auf persönlichem Briefpapier (mit eingedruckter Provenience: "Centre Universitaire Méditerranéen" geschrieben. Die ursprünglich eingedruckte Adresse wurde handschriftlich gestrichen und durch eine geprägte neue Adresse ersetzt). Darin geht Valery (1871 - 1945) neben den üblichen Höflichkeitsfloskeln auf die außergewöhnlichen Umstände der Zeit ein und bezieht sich dabei vermutlich auf die politischen Umstände in Deutschland. Er erwähnt auch eine gerade angetretene Lehrtätigkeit. Tatsächlich wird Valery 1937 als Dozent für Poetik an das Collège de France berufen. Die Anstellung in diesem höchst angesehenen und traditionsreichen Institut, das den offiziellen Auftrag hat, "Das Wissen in seiner Entstehung zu lehren", versetzte den bereits etablierten Lyriker, Philosophen und Essayisten in eine wirtschaftlich endgültig sorgenfreie Position. Paeschke wird später von 1939 - 44 Chefredakteur der von Peter Suhrkamp herausgegebenen Zeitschrift "Die Neue Rundschau" werden. 1942 - 45 hatte er als Mitglied der deutschen Spionageabwehr auch Beziehungen zur Résistance, bevor er schließlich 1946 in Baden-Baden, dem Sitz der franz. Militärregierung, die Monatszeitschrift "Merkur, Deutsche Zeitschrift für europäisches Denken" gründet, deren Herausgeber er bis 1978 blieb. Valery wird sich in der Zeit der Besetzung Frankreichs durch deutsche und italienische Truppen weigern, mit den Besatzungsmächten zusammenzuarbeiten. Als er dann den Nachruf auf "Den Juden Henri Bergson" schreibt, kosteten ihn dieser Text und die Verweigerung seiner Kooperation die Position des Präsidenten der Académie Française.

        7 (davon 5 eigenh. und 2 ms.) Briefe mit eh. U. bzw. Initialen und 3 eh. bzw. ms. (Bild-)Postkarten mit eh. U. bzw. Initialen.

      Verschiedene Orte, 1929 bis 1937. - Zusammen 13¼ SS. auf 16 Bll. (Qu.-)8vo bis Gr.-4to. Eine Karte mit eh. Adresse. Mit zwei Beilagen (s. u.). Freundschaftliche Korrespondenz mit dem Publizisten Rudolf Goldschmit-Jentner (1890–1964): „Ihre ‚Welt schreibt an Goethe’, mir weitergereicht als Ihr Gruß, hat mich sehr gefreut und auch gleich als einen willigen Leser gefunden. Es ist belehrend, unterhaltend und berichtigend, weitend und aufschlußreich, was man durch die Briefe in solcher Auswahl erfährt. Goethe nicht ausstrahlend, sondern als Ziel von Wünschen, Gedanken, Verehrung und auch Bedenken, Vertraulichkeiten und argloser Freundschaft – das ist eine Blickrichtung der man bisher nicht gefolgt ist [.]" (a. d. Br. v. 30. August 1937). – „[.] So sage ich denn für meine Berufung in das Preisrichter Kollegium gerne zu und erwarte nähere Nachricht über die erste Sitzung [.]" (Br. v. 24. Juni 1929). – Rudolf G. Binding begann nach Reisen durch Italien und Griechenland Novellen und Gedichte zu veröffentlichen und wurde nach Ende des Ersten Weltkriegs Bürgermeister in Buchschlag bei Frankfurt. „In einem Offenen Brief (‚Antwort eines Deutschen an die Welt’, 1933) an Romain Rolland sowie in zahlreichen Reden und Essays bekannte sich Binding zum Nationalsozialismus; 1934 wurde er stellvertretender Präsident der Deutschen Akademie der Dichtung" (DBE). – Tls. auf Briefpapier mit gepr. Briefkopf; meist mit leichten Gebrauchsspuren; zwei Briefe gelocht (minimale Buchstabenberührung). – Beiliegend ein ms. Brief mit U. von Bindings Sekretärin Elisabeth Jungmann (dat. 3. Dezember 1937), die gerade von einer Feier von Gerhart Hauptmanns Geburtstag zurückgekommen war, sowie eine ms. Postkarte, die vermutlich ebenfalls von Elisabeth Jungmann stammen dürfte (dat. 23. Februar 1937). [Attributes: Soft Cover]
