        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, 12x19 (Brief 1), 13x21 (Brief 2), 9x14 (Foto), 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.

        1930's concept car design

      1937. Mixed media on paper. Exquisite drawing of a 1930's concept car The old, established Willoughby firm of Utica, New York had a reputation for conservative, quality coachwork in 1930 when Viennese born Hoffmann was hired as draghtsman/designer. He quickly moved the company's design philosophy to the forefront of the streamline school, translating traditional luxury car body types such as this touring car into the modern idiom. Willoughby designed bodies for all the major luxury car firms. We have attributed this drawing to Hoffman on the basis of a very similar drawing of the period that was acquired in 1985 from Hoffmann's widow, clearly done by the same hand and exhibiting the same exquisite touch and sense of proportion.

        Federal Theatre Bulletin / Magazine

      New York, New York: Federal Theatre Project / Works Progress Administration, 1937. Hardcover. Good (Ex-lib., heavy markings; Some pages worn around edges; Cloth worn at extremities). Red cloth library binding; Approx. 200 pp.; Profusely illustrated in bw. Seven bulletins of the Federal Theatre Project, a Works Progress Administration New Deal project designed to employ out-of-work artists, writers, and directors while providing art and entertainment for poor families; The FTP became most well known (and in some cases reviled) for their Living Newspaper plays--plays based on newspaper articles, often with a leftist bent; Includes articles about current projects and issues within the FTP, including creating plays, ballets, and the like, costuming, audience reactions, and more; A fascinating look at an early twentieth century government program. Includes several colored lithographs. Contained in this bound volume (labeled Vol. 1 NO. 1-6; Vol. 2 NO. 1-5 on the spine) are the following issues: Vol. 1 No. 1, third printing Feb. 25, 1936; Vol. 1 No. 2 Dec. 1935; Vol. 1 No. 3, no date cover broken off towards spine; Vol. 1 No.4 (beginning the larger format of this publication) March 1936; Vol. 1 No. 5 May 1936 (may be missing front cover if issued); Vol. 1 No. 6 [no date but eighth month, may also be missing front cover if issued). Vol. 2 No. 1 no date, may be missing a front cover if issued; Vol. 2 No. 2 no date but library stamp from Nov. 1936, may be missing front cover if issued; Vol. 2 No. 3 no date but appears to be circa January 1937; Vol. 2 No. 4 may be missing front cover if issued, no date, but library stamp of March 1937; Vol. 2 No.5, no date by library entered date of June 1937, may be missing front cover if issued. It is possible that each cover of these later issues was a colored ithograph, and thus removed by this particular library for archival purposes, but this seems unlikely. However, each of these issue does have a rear cover of thicker, sturdier paper which is usually matched with a similar type of cover material on the front cover, hence the statement that front covers *may be missing* from these issues. The first three issues of Volume 1 are very cheaply produced on what could be guessed to be a mimeograph machine, and the sheets are fragile and exhibit minor loss here and there.Though the masthead on the top of the front page says this is a Bulletin, the rear cover of the later issues state that this is a magazine available for sale at many listed locations.

        Despair. Translated from the Russian by the author.

      London, John Long Ltd. 1937., 1937. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION. Crown octavo, pp. 287 (+ 24). Elegantly hand-bound in full black oasis morocco leather, spine gilt-lettered in six compartments with raised bands, gilt title stamped to upper cover, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, publisher's original cloth bound in at rear. Internally clean; a fine copy. [Nabokov] decided to translate Otchaianie [Despair] himself. To his chagrin, Despair fared no better than Camera Obscura had, and Nabokov blamed his English publisher, Hutchinson, for releasing his sophisticated works under its pulp fiction imprint, John Long. He later referred to the novel as "something more than an essay on the psychology of crime" but admitted: "[it] turns out to be a half-baked thriller - even when I translate it myself!" In 1965, he overhauled this version, rewriting much of the original text. This revamped version was serialized in Playboy at the end of that year, and won the magazine's annual Best Fiction award, which included a $1,000 cash prize. © 1999 The New York Public Library, Photographic Services & Permissions

        A MONOGRAPH RELATING TO THE FABRICATION OF PAPER & TIN FOIL & THE USE OF PAPER I

      [Chillicoth] 1937, Mountain House Press. Morocco spine over. pictorial paper boards, 79P., bibliography, signed by Hunter. illustrated with photos, and a large number of actual paper. samples [wanting 2], else complete, color paintings. R A R E. A stunning and marvelous reference containing actual paper samples. The whole work was printed by hand by the celebrated paper scholar, author and prolific writer on hand-made paper, Dard Hunter. He was the author of numerous other rare and important books on hand-made papers relating to: Japan, Korea, Viet-nam, Siam, as well as others. Please inquire with us for other titles in stock. * CONTENTS: This work contains 48 real specimens of Chinese ceremonial papers, as well as the most beautiful gold & silver foil samples produced in China. The hand-painted joss, "Door," "Kitchen," and other "Gods" are done with the utmost care and attention to detail, all finely painted in polychrome. Its important to point out, that these "Door Gods" were replaced every New Year, the old ones were burned in a ritual, while the new ones were affixed to doors and door jams throughout the house, kitchen and other places. They did not survive, nor were the old ones ever kept as it was considered bad luck, so there are none which survive to this day except for a few found in this book or collected by foreigners. The paintings are exceptionally ornate, reflecting the large number of "Gods" respected and used for good luck and protection during the New Year. Mock money samples representing silver coins as well as a sample silver coin are tipped in. Several of the samples are large and folding, there are also 6 folding pages of text and illustrations. * There are two bamboo paper samples the first is dated from K'ang Hsi [1662-1723], the second is from Ch'ien Lung [1736-1796]. Both are "laid" papers and are from books of the period, one has Chinese characters and Manchurian the other only in Manchurian. These samples are tipped in and nicely described. * A fine suite of eight black & white photographs showing the process of Chinese paper-making as well as tools associated with the art are exhibited. Following also a substantial essay on the techniques of hand-made papers employed in China. * THE BINDING & EDITION: FIRST & ONLY LIMITED, EDITION OF 125 COPIES, SIGNED AND NUMBERED BY THE AUTHOR. This beautiful work was hand-bound by Peter Franck, the spine is red morocco with gold-stamped titles. The covers are covered boards printed from original woodblocks used in making wall decorations for the apartments of the last Emperor of China. The corners are in vellum, the text is printed on paper made by hand in the Orient from mulberry bark. * COLLATION: The work contains 9 photogravures, 2 specimens of old paper printed text, some 48 original ceremonial paper samples, spirit and related papers, 7 illustrations and other graphic plates. Some of the woodcut illustrations are large folding types and very impressive ! * CONDITION: The binding is very nice with minor and usual rubbing to the head/tail of spine, the vellum corners are bright and without any wear. The contents is clean, occasional offsetting which is usual for this work, otherwise a very condition. Some of the samples have minor tears, wrinkles again a common feature of this work. Still in very clean collector's condition. * This is truly one of Dard Hunter's most lavish and beautiful books on hand-made papers. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: Dard Hunter: MY LIFE WITH PAPER * Dard Hunter: PAPERMAKING * Joesf Hejzlar: EARLY CHINESE GRAPHICS *[Yuen shih Pan]: SPECIAL EXHIBITION COLLECTORS' SHOW OF TRADITIONAL CHINESE WOODCUT PRINTS. * CHINESE POPULAR PRINTS: Leningrad 1988 * Shucun Wang: PAPER JOSS: Eeity Worship Through Folk Prints. * Clarance Day: CHINESE PEASANT CULTS: Being a Study of Chinese Paper Gods. * Schlosser 38 * Color scans can be sent by email.

        [Photo Album]: Civilian Conservation Corps Camp in Illinois

      Illinois. 1937. Oblong quarto. String-tied flexible red cloth with "Photographs" embossed on front board. Ownership signature, modest edgewear, very good or better, the images are near fine. 138 gelatin silver images. Various sizes between 4.75" x 3" and 8" x 10". Perhaps a dozen or more images have been either removed or fallen out, several loose images are laid in and might account for at least some of these. 16 of the images are hand colored, somewhat amateurishly, but with pleasing results. Most of the images are well captioned.Album kept by Bullard of his service at a Civilian Conservation Corps Camp, mostly in Macomb in Western Illinois. There are many images of young men shown seeding fields, constructing masonry, rock dams, and locks, lounging around the camp, sailing, eating, hitchhiking, wrestling, throwing the javelin, in baseball uniforms, and an image of a boy posed in front of a carnival sideshow poster. Although there appear to be a few family photos, including a young woman posing in an early version of a bikini and at the pool with friends, the vast majority are of the young C.C.C. men going about their daily business. An unusually nice and focused album.Census date indicates that Bullard was born in Illinois in 1918 and apparently his construction training bore some fruit, as the 1940 census shows that he worked as a laborer at a brickyard in 1940. .
