Bawden, Edward
The First UK Printing published by Country Life Ltd. in 1937. The BOOK is in Very Good++ or better condition. Light mark to the upper cloth spine. Mild toning to the board cover edges. Internally very clean with just some toning to the page edges. The binding remains very tight. Free from inscriptions and erasures. 'The Gardener's Diary' was both designed and profusely illustrated by the renowned British graphic designer Edward Bawden (1903-1989). This perpetual week to view diary comprises beautiful horticultural block prints on every page and helpful weekly reminders from William Cobbett's English Gardener (1827). Plenty of space was given to chart your garden's progress, record when plants bloom and note weather conditions. One of Bawden's finest designs, this title is extremely scarce to find in such collectible condition.

Carolyn Keene
First Edition. New York: Grosset & Dunlap, 1937. 217 pages. Blue cloth with orange lettering and Nancy Drew in silhouette on front cover. White endpapers with orange silhouettes.Rear of book lists The Betty Wales books by Margaret Wade and Books for Girls by L.M. Montgomery. Excellent book with tight binding, no marking in pages.BOOK SUMMARYNancy and her friends establish headquarters in a seaside yacht club to investigate strange happenings in a book store and the disappearance of a marble statue.AUTHOR NOTESCarolyn Keene was the pseudonym that Mildred Wirt Benson and Walter Karig used to write Nancy Drew books. The idea of Nancy Drew came from Edward Stratemeyer in 1929. He also had other series, that included the Hardy Boys, but he died in 1930 before the Nancy Drew series became famous. His daughters, Harriet and Edna, inherited his company and maintained Nancy Drew having Mildred Wirt Benson, the original Carolyn Keene, as the principal ghostwriter. During the Depression, they asked Benson to take a pay cut and she refused, which is when Karig wrote the books.Karig's Nancy Drew books were Nancy's Mysterious Letter, The Sign of the Twisted Candles, and Password to Larkspur Lane. He was fired from writing more books because of his refusal to honor the request that he keep his work as Carolyn Keene a secret. He allowed the Library of Congress to learn of his authorship and his name appeared on their catalog cards. Afterwards, they rehired Benson and she wrote until her last Nancy Drew book (#30) was written in 1953, Clue of the Velvet Mask.Harriet and Edna Stratemeyer als … [Click Below for Full Description]

Henri Molinier, der Bruder des von Raymond Molinier, dem französischen Trotzkisten der ersten Stunde, mit dem Trotzki dann gebrochen hatte und der 1935 aus der Parti Ouvrier Internationaliste (POI) ausgeschlossen worden war], so wird er alleine gar nichts erreichen. Davon abgesehen wird keines unserer Mitglieder etwas mit einem Mann zu tun haben wollen, dessen Zuname Molinier ist; zudem würden sie dessen Bestrebungen wohl als Provokation erachten oder als eine weitere List im Geiste R[aymond] M[oliniers] [...]" (19. II.). - Mit dem Brief vom 22. Februar übersendet Sedow eine Reihe von (hier nicht beiliegenden) schriftlichen Bestätigungen, die Trotzki sich erbeten hatte, sowie einige Briefe und Berichte. "[...] Ich habe heute einen Brief von der Kommune erhalten - Durchschlag liegt bei, obwohl ich glaube, daß sie ihn Dir schon direkt geschickt haben. Der Brief ist arrogant, dumm und lügt.
