        A relic of the 1937 Hindenburg disaster, collected by the chief boatswain in charge of the mooring lines at Lakehurst?who was also a survivor of the Shenandoah

      [May 6, 1937], [Lakehurst, NJ]. 12" x 4.5". "A 12"" x 4.5"" section of the aluminum-coated fabric skin recovered from the wreck of the Zeppelin airship Hindenburg after it crashed in Lakehurst, New Jersey on May 6, 1937. Expected wear consistent with exposure to fire.The aluminum powder coating on the fabric has been suspected of having contributed to the Hindenburg's flammability; the solution included cellulose acetate butyrate, aluminum powder and iron oxide.The fragment was recovered by Frederick J. ""Bull"" Tobin (1892-1978), one of the chief boatswains managing the mooring lines at Lakehurst, New Jersey when the Hindenburg caught fire and crashed to the ground in flames. Tobin became famous for ordering the fleeing ground crew back to their posts in order to assist the survivors. Twelve years earlier, Tobin survived the crash of the airship U.S.S. Shenandoah in southeastern Ohio. He had been asleep near the tail of the airship at the time and managed to escape just as the rear section crashed to Earth (John Toland, The Great Dirigibles: Their Triumphs and Disasters, 1957, p. 140-141, 328)."

        Exceedingly Rare and Important Typed Letter Signed as "Eliahu Epstein

      Jerusalem, 1937. unbound. 1 page on "Palestine Review" letterhead, 10.25 x 8 inches, Jerusalem, May 3, 1937. Written to fellow Zionist Heinrich Margulies, Director of the Anglo-Palestine Bank, Tel Aviv, in part: "I am glad you are giving us your co-operation, for I am anxious to make our paper not only an interesting but also an authoritative journal. In regard to the subject we discussed in our editorial 'East of Suez', we did not lay down permanent principles but rather referred to passing winds. It is our purpose to keep our readers both here and abroad well abreast of movements affecting the welfare of this country and we believe that we should not conceal facts which may not be palatable.I think also that you will agree that British policy, not only in regard to Zionism, has not always been consistent but is liable to fluctuation. In regard to Alexandretta, our comment has been on the lines which you suggest. I shall certainly be glad to take advantage of your suggestion to meet and discuss this and similar matters in person. I wonder why you wrote your article in German, since your English letter shows that you have a command of this language too." Note: Alexandretta was an area traditionally considered part of Syria that came under Turkish control in 1938. Israeli archives offer interesting insight into Epstein / Eilat's conduct with the posting of the following: "Eliyahu Epstein visited Iraq in February, 1937, pretending to be a journalist. Epstein was concerned about the Pan-Arab and pro-German spirit among the youth." Another document states: "Eliahu Sassoon and Eliahu Epstein, two officials of the Jewish Agency's Political Department, paid an eight-day visit to Iraq. Epstein was in touch with British political circles." There is little doubt that Epstein / Eilat was more concerned with intelligence gathering rather than journalistic endeavors. Natural folds and light creasing; two holes punched in the left margin with tearing. Otherwise in very good condition. A champion of the Zionist cause who helped found the State of Israel. In 1934 he became the head of the Political Department of the Jewish Agency, which itself was the precursor to the Israeli Government that was created at the nation's independence in 1948. It was Eilat who sought and received President Truman's recognition of Israel's establishment as a state. He was also Israel's first Ambassador to the United States upon its founding.

        Great Contemporaries

      London: Thornton Butterworth Ltd., 1937. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is a fine British first edition, first printing in a first printing dust jacket. Great Contemporaries is Churchill's much-praised collection of insightful essays about 21 leading personalities of the day - including the likes of Lawrence, Shaw, and, most famously, Hitler. Churchill's piece about Hitler can be a shock to the modern ear, as it underscores his ability to write a balanced appraisal of his subject while expressing his earnest desire to avoid the war that he would fight with such ferocious resolve only a few years later. There is a reason this book is still in print today. It was written with what has been called "penetrating evaluation, humor, and understanding." Churchill's balanced and nuanced perspectives are a good model for many of today's more polemic writers. And naturally, in the course of sketching the character of his contemporaries Churchill necessarily reveals some of his own character and perspective. Churchill's portrait of T.E. Lawrence, published here just a few years before the Second World War, might well have been written about the author rather than by him: "The impression of the personality of Lawrence remains living and vivid upon the minds of his friends, and the sense of his loss is in no way dimmed among his countrymen. All feel the poorer that he has gone from us. In these days dangers and difficulties gather upon Britain and her Empire, and we are also conscious of a lack of outstanding figures with which to overcome them. Here was a man in whom there existed not only an immense capacity for service, but that touch of genius which everyone recognizes and no one can define." (Great Contemporaries, p.164) While some of the subjects of Churchill's sketches have receded into history, many remain well-known and all remain compellingly drawn. This is as engaging a read today as it was in 1937. Here is a collector-grade copy, fine in a very good, unclipped first printing dust jacket. Collectors should note that the first printing dust jacket is unique, with changes to the front flap on the second and subsequent printings. The binding is beautifully square, clean, bright, and tight, with vivid gilt and sharp corners. We note only a touch of wrinkling at the spine heel. The contents are likewise notably bright and clean. We find no previous ownership marks. Differential toning of the endpapers corresponding to the dust jacket flaps confirms that this copy has spent life jacketed. The blue-stained top edge is clean and retains uniform, unfaded color. A trace of spotting appears confined to the bottom edge of the text block and a single, tiny spot on the fore edge. The dust jacket is unclipped, retaining the original front flap price. The vivid orange color remains very good, just slightly darkened on the jacket spine. Losses are quite modest, confined to fractional loss at the corners and spine heel, a .5 x .5 triangular loss at the upper rear hinge, and just a little loss accompanied by some wrinkling associated with a one inch closed tear at the upper front hinge. A few other short closed tears at the extremities show no loss. There is vintage brown tape reinforcement on the backside of the jacket at the spine ends. A 2 x 1.5 inch semi-circular stain at the front panel fore edge is the only blemish of note. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.

        Sandpaintings of the Navajo Shooting Chant

      J.J. Augustin, 1937. 1st. Bound in a heavy-weave orange burlap, this is the 1937 1st trade ed. With 35 gorgeous color plates silkscreened on Japanese paper. Some of the orange from the binding has bled onto the upper part of the last 10 plates. Also, some fraying to the top and bottom of the spine. The binding though is still very sturdy. This was a fragile book even when issued and, no doubt, even the very best copies must be treated gingerly. With this copy two prospectuses have been laid in, one from the autographed edition of the same title(only 250 autographed copies) and the other from "Navajo Medicine Man: Sandpaintings and Legends of Miguelito", another title published by J.J. Augustin and written by Gladys Reichard. Signed by Author(s).

        Manuscript] Statement regarding Franklin D. Roosevelt's attempt to enlarge the Supreme Court.

      1937 - written in black ink on 'Long Key Fishing Camp' headed paper, a few deletions, corrections and insertions by the author, including two false starts at head, pp. [2], 4to, a few creases to corners and light handling marks, good condition. Grey is here responding to a request from C.K. Gregg, of the Society for Preservation of American Ideals and Form of Government, soliciting the author's opinion on this matter - a photocopy of this letter and the George Ade article that accompanied it are included here. Grey writes: 'The constitution is, and has always been, in spite of changes in our ways of living [.], the bulwark of our national liberty; our defense against dictatorship and radicalism. With the fight being waged by labor at present, which to me is none less than a miniature scale of what is happening in Europe - of course, minus a good deal of the bloodshed - the Supreme Court is the one check in the complete freedom of government that could well be filled with more radicalism or desire towards dictatorship than it is today. It is not only what President Roosevelt might do with more freedom, it is what future men might do under the stress of the stronger conflict of ideas [.]'. An impassioned response to an important question, otherwise unpublished - Roosevelt's initiative was well-opposed and ultimately unsuccessful at this time. (Plus VAT in the EU)

        Medieval English Pavingtiles

      Oxford: Shakespeare Head Press Saint Aldates, 1937. First Edition. Half Morocco. . Near Fine. A fascinating look at what was, and remains, a neglected area of Medieval decorative arts. 4to.26 by 20 cm. 327 pp. Red over the cream paper illustrations on most pages -- well over 225 illustrations. Most pages with two tile specimens and a caption, sometimes long, explaining where the specimen is located and occasionally more background about the specimen. The specimens show the wide range of Medieval or Gothic creativity, all the time while working within some conventions. Also examples of lettering, which may be a topic of particular interest. The paper used in the book was a luxuriant stock with a high linen count. The cloth on the boards has moderate soiling. Foxing on the endpapers. A few minor rub spots on the leather. Nonetheless, this is a very handsome copy which overall we would consider near fine.
