"These are such exquisite, such transcendentally beautiful images of athletes, that one almost forgets their context. And it's all Greek temples and hardbodies until page 54, when the German team enters the stadium in their immaculate white uniforms, their right arms raised in salute across the page to Der Fuhrer" (Andrew Roth, The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the 20th Century). * "No story of the 1936 Berlin Summer Olympic games would be complete without a short discussion of Leni Riefenstahl's epic motion picture production Olympia. Leni Riefenstahl was born in 1902 and quickly became interested in filming and making films. In her early years, Riefenstahl had in fact a very fast growth path in the German film industry. In 1933, she filmed the Nurnberg party rally and did an exceptional job in editing the final version. Hitler was so impressed with her efforts that he made her the motion picture specialist of the NSDAP. In 1934, she outdid herself and produced the film Triumph of the Will, the story of the September Nurnberg party rally. Her filming expertise not only impressed Hitler, it also impressed the IOC. They commissioned Leni Riefenstahl to produce a documentary about the 1936 Berlin Olympic games. The film was released in 1938 (it took her over 18 months to edit the final version) and when it was released, Olympia became a definitive standard for all future sports documentaries for a long time. To produce Olympia, Riefenstahl experimented with anything and everything available to her. Camera operators were placed into foxholes and trenches so they could film the Olympic athletes and thus minimize the disruptions to their levels of concentration. She used miniature cameras in situations where a human camera operator was not a practical solution. Camera units were placed on rails and they followed the athletes around the track as they ran. Additional camera operators were allowed to roam around in the audience to get good emotional and crowd reaction shots. During diving meets, a camera operator dove alongside the diver both above and below the water. This was quite a feat since the diver had to not only dive and swim, he had to keep the camera steady and maintain a good focus on the subject (only a token percentage of that footage was of any use). It need be noted that Riefenstahl did not have an easy time making the film. Although Hitler gave her permission to film Olympia in any way she chose - Goebbels and his spin-doctors were far less accommodating. The kept pressuring her to film Olympia in a pro-German view. But Riefenstahl stuck to her position and filmed both Luz Long and Jesse Owens with the same degree of professionalism and care. Because of her close political association with Hitler and the Third Reich, Riefenstahl was essentially blackballed outside of Germany for most of her remaining life" (Arvo Vercamer and Jason Pipes). This copy does not contain the scarce dust-wrapper, for which dealers double the price.

        Death on the Nile

      London: Collins for the Crime Club, 1937. Sm. 8vo, 284 (4, ads.)pp. Full scarlet hardgrain morocco, backstrip gilt, gilt top, original orange cover and backstrip bound in. Very attractive modern binding. First edition of this famous classic featuring the immortal Hercule Poirot. It was one of ChristieÕs most successful books; the novel was adapted into a highly successful feature film, released in 1978 and starring Peter Ustinov for the first of his six appearances as Poirot. As Wikipedia notes: Dame Agatha Mary Clarissa Christie, DBE (nŽe Miller; 15 September 1890 Ð 12 January 1976) was an English crime novelist, short story writer, and playwright. She also wrote six romances under the name Mary Westmacott, but she is best known for the 66 detective novels and 14 short story collections she wrote under her own name, most of which revolve around the investigations of such characters as Hercule Poirot, Miss Jane Marple, Mr Satterthwaite, and Tommy and Tuppence. She also wrote the world's longest-running play, The Mousetrap. Born into a wealthy upper-middle-class family in Torquay, Devon, Christie served in a hospital during the First World War, before marrying and starting a family in London. She was initially unsuccessful at getting her work published; but in 1920 The Bodley Head press published her novel The Mysterious Affair at Styles, featuring the character of Poirot. This launched her literary career. The Guinness Book of World Records lists Christie as the best-selling novelist of all time. Her novels have sold roughly 2 billion copies, and her estate claims that her works come third in the rankings of the world's most-widely published books,[2] behind Shakespeare's works and the Bible. According to Index Translationum, Christie is the most-translated individual author Ð having been translated into at least 103 languages.

        A Modern Jezebel

      New York: Henry Holt and Company. Very Good+ in Good dj. (c.1937). First American Edition. Hardcover. [light bumping to top corners, slight fading to cloth at edges, spine a little turned; jacket well-worn at edges, with some paper loss at spine ends (just barely brushing the "A" in the spine title) and at a few corners, 1-1/2" closed tear and associated diagonal crease at bottom of front panel, internal tape-repair to section of front hinge]. Rare novel by the recently-rediscovered author, who perished at Auschwitz in 1942, about the life of a woman who, as the book opens, is on trial (at the age of 60) for the murder of her 20-year-old alleged lover. Described on the jacket blurb as "one of the most distinguished Russian writers of today," the author was indeed Russian by birth (1903), but her family left the country following the Revolution and soon settled in Paris, where she lived and wrote (in French) for the rest of her life. (She had been exposed to French as a child, through a governess, and also attended the Sorbonne.) She turned out fourteen published novels during her lifetime, but only two (this being the second) were published in the U.S., and her modern reputation is founded -- rather oddly, when you think about it -- entirely on "rediscovered" works that were published long after her tragic death. (Arrested during the Occupation by the French police as "a stateless person of Jewish descent" -- although she herself had converted to Catholicism in 1939 -- she was packed off to Auschwitz, where she promptly died of typhus.) .

      Milano (Mailand), Studio Editoriale Turistico, 1937.. Mehrfach gefaltetes, tls. farb. gedrucktes Plakat (ca. 59 x 89,5 cm). Mit 2 farb. lith. Abbildungen und 16 Photographien. (Kleiner Einriß hinterlegt, in den Faltstellen minimal fleckig, sonst in gutem Erhaltungszustand).. Seltenes Reklameplakat für die neu eröffnete "Touristenklasse" der beiden italienischen Schiffe REX und CONTE DI SAVOIA. "... Seit der REX und der CONTE DI SAVOIA ihren Dienst aufgenommen hatten, führten sie eine 'Spezialklasse' ... diese Klasse ist beseitigt worden. Und der ganze ungeheure Raum, den sie einnahm, bildet jetzt die neue luxuriöse TOURISTENKLASSE, die infolgedessen über grossartige Salons ... geräumige Zimmer ... verfügt...".- Die REX war das größte Passagierschiff, das jemals in Italien gebaut wurde. Die Kiellegung erfolgte am 1. August 1931. Im September 1932 wurde das Schiff von König Viktor Emanuel III. und Königin Elena auf den Namen REX getauft. 1937 wurde die Italia Flotte Riunite aufgelöst und der Italia Societa di Navigazione einverleibt. Mit Italiens Kriegseintritt 1940 stellte man den Liniendienst nach Nordamerika ein. Das Schiff kehrte im Frühjahr 1940 von seiner letzten zivilen Fahrt über den Atlantik zurück und lag dann gut getarnt außer Dienst im Hafen von Triest. Am 8. September 1944 ankerte die Rex nahe Triest, als sie von Aufklärern der Royal Air Force entdeckt und aus der Luft in Brand geschossen wurde. Das Schiff brannte vier Tage, bis es sank.- Die CONTE DI SAVOIA, benannt nach dem Haus Savoyen, wurde in Triest gebaut und lief 1932 vom Stapel. Bis 1940 war die CONTE DI SAVOIA im Dienst der Linie. Im Anschluss wurde sie als Truppentransporter im Zweiten Weltkrieg eingesetzt und bei einem Luftangriff am 11. September 1943 versenkt. 1945 wieder gehoben, bis 1950 betrieben um dann weitere fünf Jahre später verschrottet zu werden.

"The book's authors, photographer Kata Kálmán (1909-1978) and the writer Iván Boldizsár were members of a group of progressive intellectuals in the 1930s - composed of sociologists, artists, writers and researchers - who sought to raise public awareness about the plight of exploited agricultural and industrial workers. Between 1934 and 1937, Kálmán and Boldizsár investigated the lives of farmworkers in Hungary. Kálmán made portraits of them - men, women and children - while Boldizsár interviewed each of the subjects, and the result, consisting of 24 portraits and interviews, were published in Tiborc. The book's title emanates from the archetypal [Hungarian] peasant character [.]." (Parr-Badger I. 140.)
