        IMAGES OF JAPANESE CAVALRYMEN IN THE LATE-1930'S, AS COLLECTED IN A PHOTO ALBUM

      [ca.1937-38]. Oblong 4to photograph album, 24 leaves of stiff black paper, with photographs mounted mostly two or more to a page. Approximately 65 of the photographs are portraits of individual cavalrymen, with collar insignia indicating service with the 25th Cavalry Regiment of the 4th Cavalry Brigade, Imperial Japanese Army; the uniforms also show the scalloped pocket flap on the tunic, introduced for all ranks by 1930. The other 30 or so photographs picture the cavalrymen in official and informal settings, on horseback, in groups small and large, with some including background buildings. All of the photographs are clear and sharp, with the exception of two or three that seem to be overexposed. Original embossed cloth, tied. (7176) The 25th Cavalry Regiment, from 1937 until the "outbreak of the China Incident" (a reference to the Second Sino-Japanese War) was based in the city of Toyohashi, in the eastern Aichi Prefecture. One photograph shows the gates to a compound, now part of Aichi University, which had been used in the late 1930s as the army reserve officer school of the 4th Cavalry Brigade. There are also two photographs of what we have identified as the Toyokawa Inari, a Buddhist Temple in the city of Toyokawa, a short distance for Toyohashi. One of those images shows soldiers gathered with their children in front of the temple; it was the custom to go to the shrine with families before going off to war, for good luck. Several of the photographs picture the soldiers who had care of the horses for the troops and another pictures what appears to be a "commissary" with two soldiers sitting stiffly behind a counter, protecting goods which include cans and bottle, plus a few boxes of "breakfast cocoa" (so labeled in English). The more casual photographs include one of a group of Japanese men in both traditional and western dress enjoying a meal; they are posed seated on the floor which is strewn with many dishes of foods and bottles of drink. Another informal photograph pictures eight men, one in uniform, one in traditional dress, the rest in western clothes (four with Panama-style hats) posed with a pair of kewpie dolls (an unauthorized version of the kewpie doll was manufactured in Japan in the 1920s). An excellent photographic look at Japanese military life on the eve of World War II.

        [Personal Photo Albums of a Civilian Conservation Corps Member, ca. 1937-1939]

      South Lee, MA, (1937-1939). Very good. Two matching green oblong 4to. string-tied commercial photo albums, each measuring 10.25" x 7" approx. Comprising 145 snapshot photographs, mounted almost entirely recto only, both tape and corner, to 22 and 32 leaves respectively, with remainder of both albums blank. Standard black album pages with each image clearly captioned in white. A handful of images loose, with several more nearly so, and a few pictures apparently perished. Else easily very good or better. Two finely-assembled and well-annotated photo albums belonging to Civilian Conservation Corps enrollee Edward McDonald, during his 1937-39 stint in the 108th Company of the CCC at Beartown State Forest Camp, No. 2153, Project S-66, Massachusetts. Starting in 1935, the work of the 108th was to create a ski area through the thick woods of Beartown. It would eventually become one of the more popular ski destinations in the Northeast throughout the 1940s and 50s, boasting an 820' vertical drop and convenient access from NYC. The album here offered contains numerous images of McDonald's fellow CCC buddies, both individually and in groups, at work and play. Also includes photos of dynamite, earthmoving equipment, heavy application trucks, and tools of the era. Other images of clearing and ancillary construction also on display, as well as many pictures of camp life, with all images notated in McDonald's hand. During The Depression, the CCC offered non-skilled labor opportunities to young, unmarried men, between the ages of 18-25. The paid time was served in six month stints, with a maximum enrollment period of two years. McDonald took full advantage, beginning his service in October of 1937 and ending it on 30 September 1939. The Beartown area today is largely overgrown and little evidence remains of the ski area and work of the 108th. But the work of The CCC is credited with creating the modern ski industry in The Northeast, with many of their projects now among the finest resorts in New England. A revealing document from this influential New Deal program, one that helped launch similar conservation programs in the postwar era, as well as inspire the modern environmental movement.

        The Trial

      London: Victor Gollancz Ltd,, 1937. Translated by Edwin and Willa Muir. Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in dark blue. With the dust jacket. Housed in a black quarter morocco solander box made by The Chelsea Bindery. Cloth darkened at edges, endpapers and edges foxed; a very good copy in the soiled jacket with toned spine and faded front panel. First edition in English; first published in German in 1925 as Der Process. The publisher's retained copy with their stamp to the front panel of the dust jacket, the front pastedown and the title page. The Muirs were instrumental in the publication of Kafka in English, and it was at their suggestion the Martin Secker undertook The Castle in 1930. Secker went bankrupt in 1936 and it was Victor Gollancz who issued the Muirs' version of the text that introduced the kafkaesque to the anglophone world. It is their perhaps questionable rendering of the opening line, "Someone must have been telling lies about Joseph K …" that is widely considered one of the greatest first lines in world literature. An uncommon book, perhaps as few as 1,000 copies having been sold.

"Merle Armitage... was born near Mason City, Iowa, on his father's cattle ranch/farm. Self-educated, he began his varied career as a civil engineer for the Kansas City, Mexico, and Orient railroad. He next worked as a designer of sets and costumes in the theatre world of New York City. From designing he moved on to become an impresario, managing the concert tours of many leading performers. His clients include such artists as: John McCormack, Mme. Schumann-Heink, Alice Nielson, Will Rogers, Martha Graham, and Igor Stravinsky. He co-founded the Los Angeles Grand Opera Association in 1924, and served as its general manager for eight seasons. From 1933 to 1939 he was manager of the Philharmonic Auditorium in Los Angeles. There he presented Leopold Stokowski in 1937, and George Gershwin's Porgy and Bess in 1938. Armitage was, at one time, president of the American Institute of Graphic Arts and art director of Quick and Look Magazine. He was a book designer and author, with over one hundred books to his credit. Many of the books he wrote and/or designed were concerned with the artists, composers, and performers with whom he was associated." Website of the University of Iowa

        Great Contemporaries

      London: Thornton Butterworth Ltd., 1937. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is a fine copy of the British first edition, first printing in the 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 compelling a read today as it was in 1937. Here is a collector-grade copy, fine in an almost 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 excellent - square, tight, and bright with nicely rounded spine, sharp corners, bright gilt, and virtually no wear. We note only a hint of shelf wear to the lower corners. The contents are likewise unusually bright. A barely discernible trace of spotting is confined to the otherwise clean fore and bottom edges. The blue-stained top edge is clean and retains uniform, unfaded color. Mild differential toning to the endpapers corresponding to the dust jacket flaps confirms that this copy has spent life jacketed. A previous owner name in pencil and the date "Oct, 1937" (the month of publication) appear on the first free endpaper. We note also the tiny inkstamp of a Toronto bookseller in the lower left corner. The dust jacket is in near very good condition. The unclipped front flap still retains the original price. The distinctive orange color remains strong, with only barely discernible color shift to the spine. The jacket is clean, apart from a few small and faint moisture stains to the spine. We note fractional loss to the lower spine and corners, a strip loss of less than .25 inch at the spine head, and a 1 x .75 inch triangular loss at the upper right corner of the rear face. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic Reference: Cohen A105.1.a, Woods/ICS A43(a.1), Langworth p.178

        Italiani di Mussolini in A.O

      1937. GARATTI, Celso Maria. Italiani di Mussolini in A.O. 569 pp. Profusely illustrated. Large folio, bound in publisher's cloth with spine made from copper tubes, and onlaid metal axe on the front cover. Bologna: L. Cappelli, 1937. |~||~||~||~| A stupendous object, in a binding that is completely over the top. Fascist bombast at its most preposterous. The binding mimics the fascist fasces, and even though this copy bears the number 672, presumably was not produced in a large quantity, and represents one of the few bindings which could be melted down and put to a more useful existence. The layout shows the surprising influence of the avant garde of the twenties and thirties, which is at variance with the subject matter, namely the brilliant conquest of poorly armed Africans by Mussolini's military might. Surely one of the most striking and rarest of photobooks. Very rare, with OCLC recording just fives copies in the US and one copy in Italy.
