First Edition of "the first book of world literature on this issue! - "In Germany of the pre-war period Ernest Vaubel at Wiesbaden was the most emminent arthroscopist. He collaborated with the manufacturer Georg Wolf at Berlin and developed his own arthroscope, a jacobaeus-type thoracolaparascope with a5°-optic and an in- and outflow connecting piece. The optic was definitely longer than the trocard and the electric bulb at the tip was in danger during manipulation in a narrow joint. -Vaubel did a rather small series of arthroscopies from 1936 to 1939 at the University hospitals of Leipzig and Frankfurt, using local anaesthesia and air medium. 1938 he held a paper at the International Congress of Rheumatologists at Bath. In the same year he published a monograph titled "Die Arthroskopie", the first book of world literature on this issue. 1939 he leaved the Frankfurt university hospital and went in his own private practice. 1941-1944 he did military service as medical officer of the air force. After war he hadn't more facilities to practice arthroscopy. - His ideas and his instrument were revived in the german speaking countries in the late fifties by the sports surgeons Gottwald Heiss at Stuttgart and Reinhold Suckert at Linz."

Twenty-one European nations, as well as Japan and Egypt, were represented in the trophy displays, which included red deer, bison, wild boar, wolf, bear, varieties of antelope, and feathered game. The first portion of the volume provides an overview of the exhibition and includes photographs of the opening ceremonies, with Nazi leaders in attendance, views of the pavilions and displays, and floor plans. In turn, the displays of each participating nation are documented, with special sections on North American, African, and Asian big game trophies. There follow sections on the former German colonial territories; rifles, ammunitions, optics, and photography; the history, art, and literature of hunting; forestry and tracking; as well as its prehistory, where the aurochs and fanciful recreations of early European hunting practices are illustrated. The final portion of the book addresses measurement of trophies and details prizes awarded. The work is illustrated throughout with photographs of animals in nature, trophies, as well as paintings of hunting scenes. The present volume was produced for subscribers and a list is included at the end of the book; the portraits of Hitler and Goering (in his hunting green and feathered cap), often lacking in copies of this book, are here present; the uncommon dustjacket shows signs of folding but is otherwise in outstanding condition. An uncommon title and an important visual documentation of hunting in the interwar years.

      London & New York: Collins' Clear-Type Press ..., [1938?], n.d. (1929?). Bound in original quarter brown morocco, wooden boards with an overlay of approximately 100 PIECES OF MOTHER-OF-PEARL arranged ornamentally: central panel enclosing a SIX-POINTED STAR on upper cover, on lower the JERUSALEM CROSS. IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. 358, [2] p. (last 2 pages blank). Illustrated throughout with color illustrations An extremely elaborate MOTHER-OF-PEARL binding on the "Red Letter Testament," possibly bound in Jerusalem. For no apparent reason, the foot of the spine is stamped "Jerusalem," the upper cover bears the Star of David, and the lower cover bears the ornamental design of the Jerusalem Cross. These clues suggest that the volume was bound in Jerusalem, not London or New York. Certainly it is unlikely that a London or New York binder would have utilized wooden boards. A BRILLIANT SPECIMEN OF BOOKBINDING.

        Moisie River

      Boston: Privately Printed by Geo. H. Ellis Co, 1938. First edition, one of only 30 copies, this copy numbered in ink "Seven". Illustrated with 28 photographs on 14 plates, and 5 hand-colored plates after old prints and a photograph; with folding map tipped in on rear pastedown. 1 vols. 8vo. Original dark blue grained leatherette, title gilt on upper cover. A fine, fresh copy. First edition, one of only 30 copies, this copy numbered in ink "Seven". Illustrated with 28 photographs on 14 plates, and 5 hand-colored plates after old prints and a photograph; with folding map tipped in on rear pastedown. 1 vols. 8vo. E.H. Rawls Copy. In his Foreword, the author states: "These sketches were written for the members of the Moisie Salmon Club. The sole purpose was to give information to them of the waters and conditions of the Moisie River and its branches above the places customarily fished by them...". The Moisie is one of a network of navigable rivers running about 110 miles northward from the St. Lawrence, in eastern Quebec; old and well worn portage paths testify to the antiquity of the route along which, for hundreds of years, Indians have hunted and fished. For salmon and sea trout, it is one of the richest areas known. It is not suprising that the Moisie Salmon Club was founded to reap the benefits of this bounty; what is surprising is that so much care, attention, and expense has been lavished on a book limited to only 30 copies. The text consists primarily of the author's descriptions of areas north of the more usual fishing sites, based on his explorations as a sportsman, with guides. In addition to five colored plates, which tend to establish the romantic mood of the region, there are 28 superb reproductions of sepia photographs, printed on special photographic-type paper to convey both the look and the actual feel of the originals. The book's 78 pages conclude with an Index, and inside the back cover is mounted a folding map of the area described. The book is rare, not in Wetzel or Heller, not seen by Bruns, and the only copy we know of to appear at auction - a worn copy - brought $1870 at the Netz sale in New York in 1986. This copy bears the ownership signature of E.H. Rawls on the front flyleaf: pages 12 to 19 comprise Edward H. Rawls' own account of his 1929 trip to the East Branch Chute and Cran Serré of the Moisie River, where he was the first to take salmon on a light rod above the falls (in defiance of "the old story, retold until believed by everyone, that salmon would rise ot the fly above the rapids"). Palmer notes that Rawls' exploits prompted the club to build the Webster trail and develop the upper river. A choice association copy.

As Martin Parr says, "from 1930-1940 URSS en Construction employed the best Soviet photo-journalists and graphic designers. Amongst the photographers were Max Alpert, Arkadi Shaikhet, Georgi Zeima, Boris Ignatovich, Semen Fridland and Georgi Shaikhet. Designers included El Lissitzky, Sophie Kueppers, Aleksandr Rodchenko and Varvara Stepanova. All the visual strategies of the propaganda photobooks, designed by Lissitzky, Rodchenko and others -- the elaborate photomontages, innovative photography, fold-out pages, transparent overlays and so on -- were developed in URSS en Construction, one of the most beautifully produced magazines of the twentieth century." It was published in Russian, French, English, and German. This is the French version. In fine condition. Parr and Badger, The Photobook I, 148-149.

        American Photographs

      New York: Museum of Modern Art. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Very Good. FIRST EDITION of Evans's masterpiece, "at the top of the pantheon" of American photobooks. "American Photographs holds a well-deserved place at the top of the pantheon, and should be studied assiduously by any photographer attempting the tricky business of compiling a coherent photobook. It is a complex, elliptical, hugely ambitious work, exemplifying all the qualities that Evans demanded from serious photography... "It constitutes a document of 1930s America so persuasive that John Szarkowski has remarked: 'It is difficult to know now with certainty whether Walker Evans recorded the America of his youth, or invented it... American Photographs remains a great work of art, for it showed us all -- including the photographer himself -- just what might be accomplished by the photobook" (Parr and Badger, The Photobook, Vol. I.). Roth 101. New York: The Museum of Modern Art, 1938. Quarto, original black cloth with paper spine label, original dust jacket. With errata slip; without the extremely rare belly-band. Book fine, dust jacket with mild toning (usual with this jacket), a tiny bit of edgewear, and small spot of discoloration at base of front panel. An exceptionally good copy of a book that is notoriously difficult to find in collectible condition.
