        High Street

      Country Life 1938 - The First UK Printing published by Country Life in 1938. The BOOK is in Very Good++ or better condition. Original pictorial paper covered boards showing only trivial wear to the spine ends and corners with a little loss and splitting at the rear spine fold ends only (This production is noted for its very fragile spine which often detaches). Very light toning to the spine. Spotting to end papers and prelims. Very light spots to the page edges for a few of the lithographs with the spotting a little more prominent to ' The Knife Grinder' lithograph but still very light. A lovely copy of a very fragile production. Cover illustrations and 24 full page colour lithographs by Eric Ravilious who began work on his 'High Street' lithographs in 1935 following a suggestion from Helen Binyon that he do an alphabet of shops. He deliberately sought out odd shops with special and often Victorian visual appeal as inspiration for the work. With the addition of text from Ravilious's friend, Jim Richards, what was produced was one of the most famous and iconic illustrated books of the twentieth century. The New Statesman wrote that the designs were 'so gay and vivid that they surprise the reader like the shops themselves when they light up on a foggy morning'. The book was never reprinted because the original plates were destroyed in a bombing raid in 1942 (in the same year Ravilious, who was a captain in the Royal Marines and an official war artist, was killed in action). Protected with a loose Mylar archival cover and housed in a custom black slipcase with a silk tie. Notoriously hard to find in such collectible condition due to its fragility. More images available on request. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        America

      London: Rutledge, 1938. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine/fine. 1st edition in English (the 1st U. S. edition was 1940). Publisher's reply card laid in (maybe some kind of review copy, but probably not). Fine in a dustjacket with faint fox spots to the spine otherwise the jacket is also fine. Kafka was a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs, and he died at 41, so like everyone who dies young, he is remembered as vital, intense and filled with potential, a figure made of promise, legends, myths, and memories, not facts. This is the earliest written, but the last published, of the 3 tragicomic novels (with The Castle and The Trial) in his trilogy of loneliness. He began it in 1912 and originally called it The Man Who Disappeared, or by the title of its first chapter, The Stoker, but he regularly referred to it as his American novel, so when it was posthumously published, his executor (Max Brod) titled it America. It is more explicitly humorous and slightly more realistic than most of his works, although there is symbolism galore including (for 1 example) The Statue of Liberty holding a sword and not a torch (imagine what Kafka might have symbolized out of our witness protection program). America shares the thesis of an oppressive and intangible system putting the protagonist (naïve, fragile and optimistic) continually into bizarre labyrinthine situations in which he must plead his innocence to remote and mysterious figures of authority (if you are charged, you must be guilty of something), and it uses many details of the life experienced by Kafka's relatives who had immigrated to America. The book is always called an unfinished novel, but it's 298 pages long, so "essentially finished" would be closer to the truth. and I can finish it for you right now, because it's the only novel for which he ever considered an optimistic ending, It already includes the first part of the last chapter (The Nature Theater of Oklahoma) and Kafka repeatedly told friends that he only had to write the reconciliation, with his young hero "finding a profession, his freedom, and his old home and family, all as if by some celestial witchery.".

        Silver Gelatin Photograph

      Princeton: np, 1938. ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS PHOTOGRAPHS OF EINSTEIN, SIGNED BY THE PHOTOGRAPHER LOTTE JACOBI. In 1938, Einstein agreed to sit for a "photo story" by Life magazine on the condition that Lotte Jacobi be the photographer. A noted female portraitist who photographed many of the 20th century's most famous men and women, Jacobi was descended from a long line of photographers--her great-grandfather having learned the craft from the inventor of photography himself, Louis Daguerre. She abandoned her successful career in Germany in 1935, having declined the Nazis' offer of "honorary Aryan status"--undoubtedly one of the reasons Einstein so admired her.Jacobi disliked the stiff portraiture technique that characterized the photography studio of her time. Rather, it was her method to bring the studio to the subject, and she liked to wait until her models were most at ease before taking a photo. Here she has brilliantly captured Einstein in his Princeton home in a private moment of deep museful thought--at work on scientific equations--casually dressed in his favorite leather ("bomber") jacket and with his signature disheveled hair.Life magazine rejected the photograph on the grounds that it defied the prevailing aesthetics of contemporary photographic journalism and that it did not treat Einstein "with enough respect." But in focusing on the very qualities that defined the inner nature of her subject--his contemplative absorption in his science and his own indifference to social conventions of dress and grooming--Jacobi created one of the most beloved images of the great scientist. The photograph was first publicly exhibited at the MoMA's 1942 exhibition of "20th Century Portraits" and has since gone on to become an essential image for our conception of the great scientist.Taken in 1938, printed later. Silver gelatin photograph signed by Jacobi in pencil on the bottom right of the image. Size: 9.75 x 7.25 inches. Magnificently archivally framed under museum glass for a size (with frame) of 15 x 18 inches. Fine condition. Fine.

        America

      London: Rutledge, 1938. 1st edition in English (the 1st U. S. edition was 1940). Publisher's reply card laid in (maybe some kind of review copy, but probably not). Fine in a dustjacket with faint fox spots to the spine otherwise the jacket is also fine. Kafka was a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs, and he died at 41, so like everyone who dies young, he is remembered as vital, intense and filled with potential, a figure made of promise, legends, myths, and memories, not facts. This is the earliest written, but the last published, of the 3 tragicomic novels (with The Castle and The Trial) in his trilogy of loneliness. He began it in 1912 and originally called it The Man Who Disappeared, or by the title of its first chapter, The Stoker, but he regularly referred to it as his American novel, so when it was posthumously published, his executor (Max Brod) titled it America. It is more explicitly humorous and slightly more realistic than most of his works, although there is symbolism galore including (for 1 example) The Statue of Liberty holding a sword and not a torch (imagine what Kafka might have symbolized out of our witness protection program). America shares the thesis of an oppressive and intangible system putting the protagonist (naïve, fragile and optimistic) continually into bizarre labyrinthine situations in which he must plead his innocence to remote and mysterious figures of authority (if you are charged, you must be guilty of something), and it uses many details of the life experienced by Kafka's relatives who had immigrated to America. The book is always called an unfinished novel, but it's 298 pages long, so "essentially finished" would be closer to the truth. and I can finish it for you right now, because it's the only novel for which he ever considered an optimistic ending, It already includes the first part of the last chapter (The Nature Theater of Oklahoma) and Kafka repeatedly told friends that he only had to write the reconciliation, with his young hero "finding a profession, his freedom, and his old home and family, all as if by some celestial witchery.". Fine / fine.

        Photo Album]: Pennsylvania Woman

      Pennsylvania, New York 1938 - Oblong quarto measuring 10.5" x 12.5". Screw bound brown leather over stiff paper board with gilt decorations. Contains 352 sepia-toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 2" x 2.75" and 5" x 7" with captions. Near fine photo album with near fine photographs.A photo album kept by a young Pennsylvania woman beginning in 1938 and continuing through 1949. The album begins with trips the family took in Pennsylvania in 1938 including one to Camp Adahi, Hopewell Park, and later the "Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania," Pine Creek Gorge. This is followed by a school picnic for the woman's middle school choir class with photos of people playing games at an outdoor picnic site. She also photographed her friends and family at the New Jersey seaside with images of girls in the ocean and crowds on the beach in Atlantic City. Her family visited Niagara Falls in 1939 photographing the Canadian side, rapids, and the American falls. Her 8th grade class took a trip around Buck's County, Pennsylvania and went to the Friends Meeting House, the Reading Airport, and Daniel Boone's homestead. Another trip in 1940 took them to Lancaster and Hersey and she also graduated from 8th grade later that year. In 1940 they went to the New York World's Fair which went on simultaneously with the San Francisco World's Fair. The New York showcase was the first to base itself "in the future" and used the slogan "Dawn of a New Day" and was also the site of the first science fiction convention. The album shows the crowds, parachute jumpers, the Perisphere. While in high school she was a part of the May Day court, participating in community day, and enjoyed leisure time with girlfriends. They went to Maryland and Washington, D.C. and went back to the New Jersey beaches and Camp Adahi almost every summer. Photos from June of 1943 show a woman in a WAC uniform and a girl graduating. There are photos from Christmas parties, Thanksgiving, and posing with the family dog. She participated in the celebration of "Decoration Day" in their town where she was in the color guard. Her prints from 1948 include a caption on each with the month, year, and "Reading's Bicentennial Year" on the edge of the photo. This includes the parade in honor of the 175th anniversary of Reading's fire department. The final pages show a beach trip to Atlantic City in August of 1949.An interesting look at a decade in a young woman's life through her school years and World War II.

        PUBLICATIONS OF THE HUDSON'S BAY RECORD SOCIETY

      London: The Hudson's Bay Record Society, 1938-81. FIRST EDITIONS. This is the complete collection of journals, letters, and reports from the archives of the Hudson's Bay Company, constituting a rich source of information for the early history of Canada. Founded by French fur traders Pierre-Esprit Radisson (1636-1710) and Médard Chouart, Sieur des Groseilliers (1618-1710), the company known in Canada as "The Bay" ("La Baie") received a royal Charter from Charles II of England in 1670 for exclusive trading rights of the Hudson Bay watershed. The Company's representatives travelled deep into the Canadian forests, trapping and trading for furs. They established the settlements that became Winnipeg, Calgary, and Edmonton, and by the early 19th century had penetrated to the Pacific Northwest, setting up Fort Vancouver. The documents reproduced here record those explorations: there is correspondence from the Company to its men in the field, reports from the outposts to the home office, and journals of travels in Northern Quebec and Labrador, Athabasca, Snake Country, Saskatchewan, and British Columbia. "The Bay" remains a commercial force to this day, with a retail empire in North America and Europe that includes Saks Fifth Avenue.. 242 x 158 mm. (9 1/2 x 6 1/4"). 33 volumes. FIRST EDITIONS. Publisher's cloth (blue for vols. 1-22, black for the rest), gilt titling and insignia on spine, volumes 24-33 in printed dust jackets, as issued (other volumes issued without jackets). Illustrated with plates and maps, some folding. Occasional fading to spines of blue volumes (as usual), otherwise an excellent set--clean, fresh, and bright internally, and with few signs of use, inside or out.
