"The depreciation of the mark of 1914-1923, which is the subject of this work, is one of the outstanding episodes in the history of the twentieth century. Not only by reason of its magnitude but also by reason of its effects, it looms large on our horizon. It was the most colossal thing of its kind in history: and, next probably to the Great War itself, it must bear responsibility for many of the political and economic difficulties of our generation. It destroyed the wealth of the more solid elements in German society; and it left behind a moral and economic disequilibrium, apt breeding ground for the disasters which have followed." - from Foreword.

        Un Etre Etoilique. [A Starlike Being.]

      [Paris: Criterion:, [1937]. Reprinted from The Criterion, Volume XVII, No. 66. Octavo. Original tan wrappers, titles to front wrapper in black. Housed in a custom-made orange cloth slipcase and chemise. Very light rubbing to corners, and one or two tiny marks to wrappers, but a superb copy in excellent condition. First edition of Miller's 7,000 word essay in praise of Anais Nin, an offprint from The Criterion vol XVII no. 66, this a presentation copy inscribed by Miller on the front wrapper verso, "To James F. O'Rourke, from Henry Miller, 2/18/79". The recipient cannot be definitively identified, but it is worth mentioning the appearance of a character named O'Rourke, a detective for the Cosmodermic Telegraph Company, in Miller's Tropic of Capricorn and again in The Rosy Crucifixion trilogy. Copies of this offprint were produced only for the author, with none issued for sale, which goes some way to explaining this latter day presentation inscription of a copy evidently retained for over four decades. Itself among the scarcer Miller "A" items, Un Etre Etoilique (A Starlike Being) is rare inscribed.

        PONTIFICAUX MANUSCRITS DES BIBLIOTHÈQUES PUBLIQUES DE FRANCE.|LES

      Paris: (Protat Frères), 1937. original stiff paper wrappers with glassine wrapper; fourth volume is a cloth-backed board portfolio containing the plates. 4to. original stiff paper wrappers with glassine wrapper; fourth volume is a cloth-backed board portfolio containing the plates. (iv),cliv,304; (iv),462; (iv).161,(2); xiii pages + 140 leaves of plates in black and white. 4 Volumes. First edition. A multi-volume work surveying pontifical manuscripts held in the public libraries of France (Besterman 3572). An introduction (over 150 pages long) helps establish for the reader the significance of pontifical manuscripts. After defining the term "pontifical" as a liturgical book containing all the rituals and ceremonies, culled from a variety of predecessor sources and collated together into one convenient book, that might be performed by a bishop, with the exception of the Mass and the Divine Office, the introduction proceeds into specific investigation of the arrangement of such books, the different types of ceremonies contained therein (e.g., ordinations for those distributing communion during the Mass, for readers, exorcists, acolytes, subdeacons, deacons, and priests; episcopal consecration; and dedication of churches), ways to identify and date such a book, and typical decoration. The descriptive catalogue of the 233 pontifical manuscripts from the ninth through the eighteenth centuries (beginning in Volume One and continuing through the end of Volume Two) offers in-depth informative entries arranged according to place of location. A separate section in Volume Two deals with those books that are not properly called "pontificals" (sacramentaries, breviaries, missals, etc.), but that contain similar kinds of information. Volume Three contains a table of contents, in the form of a list of manuscripts, arranged alphabetically according to present location; a list of churches and abbeys thought to be the places of generation for the manuscripts; and a general index. The portfolio, numbered volume four, illustrates many of the volumes discussed in the preceding volumes in its 140 black and white plates. Overall, a compendious and complete work for its chosen subject matter and date of creation. Printed on laid paper. Bottom of spine of volume one is partially chipped away. Bookplate. Unopened copy.

        ALS - Eigenhändiger Brief mit Unterschrift "d(ein) Otto".

      . Mittenwald, "Donnerstag Nachmittag" (= 5.VIII.1937). 4 Seiten kl.-4°. Winzige Randeinrisse. Mit eigenh. adressiertem Umschlag, Absenderangabe "Hahn / Haus Hofgarten, Garmisch". -. Otto Hahn, Chemiker, Nobelpreisträger, lieferte mit Fritz Straßmann und Lise Meitner den experimentellen Beweis für die Kernspaltung des Urans, 1879-1968. - Aus den Sommerferien an seine Frau Edith geb. Junghans, die kurz vorher mit dem 15jährigen Sohn Hanno von Garmisch nach Berlin zurückgekehrt war . - Seit 1907 reiste Hahn jeden Sommer in die Alpen, wo er meist zusammen mit seinem Bruder Heiner oder mit befreundeten Wissenschaftlern Bergtouren unternahm. - - "M. l. Edith. / Hannos Ungeduld wegen der Alpspitze muss ich noch etwas zügeln. Auch heute sind wir nicht gegangen, obgleich seit gestern das Wetter entschieden viel besser ist. Eine Husche kommt wohl mal; aber immer nur sehr kurz ... Vorerst ist die Tour auf morgen, Freitag, festgesetzt. Gründe: Besuch der Schwedin etc. etc. - - Mich stört die Verschiebung nicht; denn ich mach dann einfach was Anderes. Heute bin ich um ? 12 mit dem Omnibus nach Kainzenbad gefahren (vorher war ein kurzer, aber starker Guss). Dann auf unserem Wege hierher gegangen. Die Originalphotographierstelle habe ich noch immer nicht sicher gefunden ... - - An Elman" (gemeint ist vermutlich der russische Violinist Mischa E., 1891-1967) ging ich diesmal stolz vorbei. Dafür gehe ich heute Abend in Garmisch wieder für 1 M. in das populäre Konzert. - - - Hier in Mittenwald ... kann ich ab Mittwoch (11.Aug.) ein Einbettzimmer haben ... Ich habe dies ausgemacht, nachdem ich von Heiner endgültig wegen Krankheit von Seethaler abgesagt bekommen habe ... - - Deine nette Karte habe ich gestern bekommen; ich freue mich, dass in Dahlem alles so schön in Ordnung ist, und dass Ihr auf der Fahrt nicht gek..... habt. - - Beiliegend Karte von Riesenfelds ... - - Gestern habe ich auf Empfehlung von Jocher" (seinem Wirt) "einen 'Rundmarsch' um den Kramer gemacht ... Herrliche Aussicht, aber teilweise recht steil und steinig. Da ich gestern ebensowenig wie heute gejaust hatte, ging ich Abends zum 1. Mal wieder in den 'Roten Hahn' ... das beste Esslokal. Den teureren Alpenhof und Sonnenlicht kenne ich nicht ... - - Beiliegend noch ein Zeitungsausschnitt, der auch Hanno interessieren wird ..." - Statt des erwähnten Zeitungsausschnitts liegt ein anderer vom 11. August bei, den Hahn in einem späteren Brief geschickt haben muß; ferner eine Anzeige des "7. populären Konzerts" in Garmisch am 12. August, mit Hahns eigenh. Anmerkungen "Mozart-Liszt-Abend!! / Und ich Ärmster sitze in Mittenwald". - - In diesem Jahr erschienen die wichtigen Transuran-Arbeiten von Hahn, Meitner und Straßmann; im nächsten Jahr gelang die Kernspaltung.

        The Metamorphosis

      London: The Patron Press, 1937 Translated by A. L. Lloyd. First English edition, first printing. Publisher's dark gray paper boards over blue cloth spine, light blue paper label lettered in black to the front board, spine lettered in black; in the publisher's original glassine dust jacket. Near fine, with a hint of toning to the spine, else fine; glassine with a few small chips to the spine, some rippling. Overall, a tight and pleasing copy. The Metamorphosis was first published serially in German under the title Die Verwandlung in the avant-garde journal Die weissen Blätter in October 1915 and in book format by Kurt Wolff Verlag in December of the same year. It tells the story of the anti-hero Gregor Samsa, an overworked travelling salesman who awakens to find himself transformed into an ungeheueres Ungeziefer, or, as Lloyd translates "some monstrous kind of vermin;" Kafka's deliberately vague description of Samsa's new insect-like body, which, in the original German, is emphasized as being dirty and bottom-feeding, makes a direct translation into English extremely difficult, but is generally accepted to be a cockroach. As Gregor realizes his own transformation, the cause of which is never explained, his family's opinion of him similarly transforms, as they are both frustrated by his inability to continue to support them financially and disgusted by his new physical appearance. The Metamorphosis is widely considered one of the most influential works of the 20th century.. 1st English Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        POIROT LOSES A CLIENT

      Dodd, Mead & Company, 1937., 1937. First U.S. edition. 8vo. Fine, bright, tight copy in a bright dust jacket that has a few tiny chips at the extremities. Originally published in the U.K. in 1937, as DUMB WITNESS. Hercule Poirot receives a mysterious letter fifty-nine days after the writer's death. Miss Arundell was over seventy years of age and had been in failing health for a number of years, so it didn't arouse any suspicion when she died. But when Poirot found this posthumous letter waiting for him on his breakfast tray, it only increased his responsibility to examine the curious circumstances surrounding Miss Arundell's supposedly natural death. Beautiful copy.
