Dieser Kampf, der gleichermaßen um die Größe des neuen Staates wie um die Reinheit der Idee des Führers geht, ist vielfältig wie keiner zuvor. Diesen Kampf der SA. zum Kampf des ganzen Volkes zu machen, ist der Zweck dieser Schriftenreihe. Diese Bändchen soll nicht nur eine geschliffene Waffe in der Hand jedes politischen Kämpfers an, sondern auch Quell der Erkenntnis für jeden deutschen Volksgenossen \". Mit weiteren zeittypischen Ausführungen wie z.B.: \"die rein körperlichen Unterschiede, die den Arier vom Juden trennen, sind so gewaltige, dass jede Vermengung nordischen Arierblutes mit dem Semitisch-Micro jeden Juden Blut als Himmel schreiende Sünde wider den Geist der Schöpfung erscheint. Die jüdischen Plattfüße, der zweigeteilte Blick, dass Kainszeichen in der Gegend der Nasenwurzel, von dem auch die Bibel reden, das negerhafte Haar, der sinnlich triebhafte Zug um die Mundwinkel, das flossenartige Halten der Hände in Ruhestellung, das merkwürdige Jüdeln, bei welchem der Ellenbogen angezogen wird, sind ebenso Rasseeigentümlichkeiten der jüdischen Bastardrasse wie ihr typischer Geruch . . . \" / \"Die Berufung unseres Führers A d o l fH i t l e rschlug wie eine Bombe im jüdischen Lager ein. Und gerade an der Wirkung, welche diese Nachricht im Judentum hervorrief, kann man das Falsche, Lügenhafte und Verleumderische des jüdischen Wesens erkennen. Obwohl noch gar keine Maßnahmen gegen Juden getroffen waren, begann in der ganzen Welt sofort ein jüdische Lügen- und Verleumdungsfeldzug gegen den neuen Staat. Aus tausenden von Giftspritzen auf dem ganzen Erdball wurden Tag für Tag gemeinste Greuelnachrichten über die Leiden und Verfolgungen der Juden in Deutschland verbreitet, wurde von dem Hinschlachten von tausenden jüdischer Männer und Frauen berichtet usw. Daher kam es auch, daß Ausländer, welche Deutschland bereisten, glaubten, gleich auf dem ersten Grenzbahnhof Judenleichen zu hunderten aufgestapelt zu sehen, und umso erstaunter waren, als sie sahen, daß an den ganzen gemeinen Lügen und Verleumdungen der \"furchtbaren und blutigen Nazi-Diktatur\" kein Wort wahr war\" . . .

        Mr. Justice Holmes and the Supreme Court.

      Harvard University Press, Cambridge, MA 1938 - First edition of this work by Justice Frankfurter regarding his colleague Justice Holmes. Octavo, original cloth, frontispiece of Justice Holmes. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Hon. George W. Norris, may he long continue to be the yardstick of disinterested statesmanship. With the respect and admiration of Felix Frankfurter." The recipient George Norris was a five-term Progressive Senator from Nebraska, 1913-1943, who was noted for the Norris-LaGuardia Act and the Tennessee Valley Authority. In near fine condition. A nice association copy. Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. was an American jurist who served as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States from 1902 to 1932, and as Acting Chief Justice of the United States January-February 1930. Noted for his long service, his concise and pithy opinions and his deference to the decisions of elected legislatures, he is one of the most widely cited United States Supreme Court justices in history, particularly for his "clear and present danger" opinion for a unanimous Court in the 1919 case of Schenck v. United States, and is one of the most influential American common law judges, honored during his lifetime in Great Britain as well as the United States. Holmes retired from the Court at the age of 90 years, making him the oldest Justice in the Supreme Court's history. He also served as an Associate Justice and as Chief Justice on the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, and was Weld Professor of Law at the Harvard Law School, of which he was an alumnus.

Bertie is his usual rich, idle, comic self, leaving Jeeves, as usual, in total control of his master's life.

        The Spanish Earth [F. A. I. End Papers]

      Cleveland: The J. B. Savage Company, 1938. First Edition. Decorative Cloth. Fine. Exceptionally scarce First Issue with F. A. I. banner end papers, one of fewer than 100 copies from a limited edition of 1000 copies, of which this is number 116. (Hemingway so disliked the original orange end papers showing soldiers advancing beneath the flag of the Federación Anarquista Ibérica, or F. A. I, one of the pro-Republican belligerents in the Spanish Civil War, that after an estimated 50 to 100 copies were bound (so reported by the publisher in a letter to Hanneman) the endpapers were changed to plain.) Illustrated by Frederick K. Russell, with introduction by Jasper Wood. Small, slim 8vo: 60pp, with 7 full-page original charcoal drawings. Publisher's tan linen cloth, front cover lettered in black and decorated in orange, spine lettered in black, printed throughout in black on tan Linweave paper, absent the original glassine jacket (fresh one added). A superlative copy, covers and spine almost pristine with barest hint of toning; tightly bound text, fresh and bright; superb illustrations. Hanneman A15a. Text of the narration for the sound track that Hemingway contributed to the 1938 film of the same name, about the Spanish Civil War, which broke out in 1936 with a military uprising in Morocco on July 17, triggered by events in Madrid. Within days, Spain was divided in two: a "Republican," or "Loyalist," Spain consisting of the Second Spanish Republic (within which were pockets of revolutionary anarchism and Trotskyism), and a "Nationalist" Spain under the insurgent generals and, eventually, under the leadership of General Francisco Franco. "Late in 1936, while Hemingway was working on To Have and Have Not, the North American Newspaper Alliance offered to hire him to report on the civil war being fought in Spain. The literary fruits of this undertaking, in addition to the news stories Hemingway produced to fulfill his contract, were the script for the narration of a pro-Republic documentary film, The Spanish Earth; a relatively unsuccessful play, The Fifth Column (published with his collected stories as The Fifth Column and the First Forty-nine Stories); a handful of short stories about wartime Spain, and his most successful novel in more than a decade, For Whom the Bell Tolls." (Literary Encyclopedia) The Spanish Earth was published by a precocious Cleveland high-school student named Jasper Wood, who was so moved on seeing the film that he convinced Hemingway to allow publication of the text. Fewer than a hundred copies were bound (this first issue is a notable Hemingway rarity) before Wood made the change to plain tan end papers (the second issue). N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        John Bunyan - Pilgrim's Progress 25 year Collection (325 Volumes) - Bible

      - 325 Volumes of Pilgrim's Progress and other works of Bunyan. was an English writer and Baptist preacher best remembered as the author of the religious allegory The Pilgrim's Progress. In addition to The Pilgrim's Progress, Bunyan wrote nearly sixty titles, many of them expanded sermons. Bunyan came from the village of Elstow, near Bedford. He had some schooling and at the age of sixteen joined the Parliamentary army during the first stage of the English Civil War. After three years in the army he returned to Elstow and took up the trade of tinker, which he had learned from his father. He became interested in religion after his marriage, attending first the parish church and then joining the Bedford Meeting, anonconformist group in Bedford, and becoming a preacher. After the restoration of the monarch, when the freedom of nonconformists was curtailed, Bunyan was arrested and spent the next twelve years in jail as he refused to undertake to give up preaching. During this time he wrote a spiritual autobiography, Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners, and began work on his most famous book, The Pilgrim's Progress, which was not published until some years after his release. Bunyan's later years, in spite of another shorter term of imprisonment, were spent in relative comfort as a popular author and preacher, and pastor of the Bedford Meeting. He died aged 59 after falling ill on a journey to London and is buried in Bunhill Fields. The Pilgrim's Progress became one of the most published books in the English language; 1,300 editions having been printed by 1938, 250 years after the author's death.

        PEST NA OKO ANEB CAESAROVO FINALE: Pribeh o Divadle na Divadle o 19 Obrazech. Hudbu slozil Jaroslav Jezek.

      Praha: Fr. Borovy, 1938., 1938.. Very good. - Octavo, bound in light tan cloth with the original pictorial front wrapper bound in. There is some minor staining to the upper half of the spine with some very light pink staining to the rear cover along the spine. There is a small piece out of the top corner of the wrapper with 2 short tears. 130 pages plus colophon. Illustrated with 4 black-and-white plates which appear to depict the stage settings. The flyleaf is slightly darkened & soiled with a tiny tear to its bottom edge & a piece of tape affixed to the verso. Very good. <p>Jiri Voskovec's copy signed by him in full with brief ink notations in Czech on the title page and with a few pencil markings in the text.<p>This was the last piece performed by the satiric duo known as "V + W". The striking color wrapper illustration depicts the pair side-by-side on their hands and knees in clown-like attire and make-up. The title of the work translates approximately as "Fist in the Eye or Caesar's Finale". It opened at the Liberated Theatre in Prague on April 8, 1938, directed by Jindrich Honzl. The music was composed by V + W's regular composer Jaroslav Jezek. The play begins with the interruption of a performance of "Julius Caesar" by the arrival of a bailiff named Josef Dionysos who is unaware that his name identifies him as the ancient god of theatre and wine. This encounter branches off into a series of fantastical sketches, often accompanied by songs and inspired by comedia dell'arte. It evolves into a spirited consideration of theatre and history,with the underlying conviction that history is not made by generals and dignitaries but by ordinary people and that people should be challenged to take state matters into their own hands.<p>The text is in Czech.<p>Jiri [George] Voskovec was born Jiri Wachsmann [1905-1981]. He was a much revered Czech actor and playwright. After World War 1 Voskovec appeared with Jan Werich [1905-1980] as one of a comic duo in the tradition of Laurel and Hardy. "Together with Jaroslav Jezek, the father of Czech jazz, they moulded dadaism, circus, jazz, Chaplin, Buster Keaton, and American vaudeville into a new art form. They created a new form of intellectual political musical." - [Josef Skvorecky: "All the Bright Young Men and Women"]. Having created a sensation with their "Vest Pocket Revue" in April 1927, V + W were invited to join the Devetsil theatre group in May. In 1929 they renamed the group "Liberated Theatre" ["Osvobozene Divadlo"] and they took over every element of the productions. During the 1930s the productions of V + W became increasingly anti-fascist and their "Liberated Theatre" was eventually forced to close in 1938. The following year they fled to the United States. After World War 2 Voskovec settled permanently in the U.S. and Werich returned to Czechoslovakia. Both actors went on to have long careers in film, Voskovec appearing in 72 movies and Werich in more than 50. Four of their stage works were made into films: "Powder and Gasoline" [1931], "Your Money or Your Life" [1932], "Heave-ho" [1934], and "The World Belongs to Us" [1937]. Voskovec is known for his role as Juror #11 in "12 Angry Men".

        About Investment

      [San Francisco]: E.F. Hutton & Company, 1938. First Edition, First Printing. A beautifully produced booklet on the pitfalls of investing, printed on behalf of E.F. Hutton at the Grabhorn Press in San Francisco. Issued during the Depression, the booklet singles out various ways in which the investor is bound to lose money: Buying in haste and investigating at leisure; buying or selling on catch phrases; choosing only high-yield investments; holding on--refusing to admit a loss; selling the strong and holding the weak; buying only round lots; putting too many eggs in one basket; spreading too thin; putting securities away and forgetting them; holding on for sentiment; refusing to sell because you missed the top--or to buy because you missed the bottom; and putting off buying until a boom. The booklet wraps up with a checklist for investors and then a pitch for E.F. Hutton's investment services. Overall, commonsense financial advice that has stood the test of time. 8vo ( 9 7/8 inches / 25.2 cm), 21 unnumbered pages, in printed paper wrappers. Each chapter features decorative initial letters in red and gray, with chapter headings in red. A spectacular production, printed by letterpress and sporting deckled page edges. Some age toning along the edges of the covers, a bit of creasing to some internal pages. A Very Good or better copy. OCLC WorldCat shows 17 institutional holdings. None in commerce as of March 8, 2017. SCARCE.

        [AGRONOMIC PROPAGANDA FOR CHILDREN] Na vystavku! [i.e. To the Exhibition!]

      Leningrad: GIZMESTPROM, 1938. 18 pp. 22x15 cm. Original illustrated wrappers and illustrations by A.N. Viktorova. Restoration of the spine. The first and only edition. A coloring book. On every turn of the page there's an image in color and the same image and outline of the same image opposite for child to color. The first page is colored, the rest are unfilled. GIZMESTPROM is translated as 'The state publishing house for light industry'. It was mostly printing technical literature, manuals and instructions. Presumably it only published a handful of children's books. The theme of the book is that the animals are getting to the well-known All-Union Agricultural Exhibition which opened in 1939 to show the unusually big vegetables they grew. Not in the WorldCat.

        Mr. Justice Holmes and the Supreme Court.

      Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 1938. First edition of this work by Justice Frankfurter regarding his colleague Justice Holmes. Octavo, original cloth, frontispiece of Justice Holmes. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Hon. George W. Norris, may he long continue to be the yardstick of disinterested statesmanship. With the respect and admiration of Felix Frankfurter." The recipient George Norris was a five-term Progressive Senator from Nebraska, 1913-1943, who was noted for the Norris-LaGuardia Act and the Tennessee Valley Authority. In near fine condition. A nice association copy. Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. was an American jurist who served as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States from 1902 to 1932, and as Acting Chief Justice of the United States January-February 1930. Noted for his long service, his concise and pithy opinions and his deference to the decisions of elected legislatures, he is one of the most widely cited United States Supreme Court justices in history, particularly for his "clear and present danger" opinion for a unanimous Court in the 1919 case of Schenck v. United States, and is one of the most influential American common law judges, honored during his lifetime in Great Britain as well as the United States. Holmes retired from the Court at the age of 90 years, making him the oldest Justice in the Supreme Court's history. He also served as an Associate Justice and as Chief Justice on the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, and was Weld Professor of Law at the Harvard Law School, of which he was an alumnus.

        Rebecca - First US Edition - David O Selznick's copy with annotations and complete with original film poster *Alfred Hitchcock association*

      Doubleday Doran, 1938. Hardcover. Very Good. A first edition, first printing published by Doubleday Doran in 1938. Covers a little rubbed, rubber-stamped with 'property of Selznick International pictures Inc.' and 'story department' on the front endpaper and repeated on the title page. Inscribed in pencil on front endpaper 'No. 2 marked copy'. Pencilled notes and stamps on endpapers. A substantial number of passages have been underlined or marked in pencil throughout, while there are also a number of marginal notes in pencil. Two of the more interesting notes: on page 4: 'I think we must work out a photographic and musical introduction that is the equivalent of this chapter - both to set the key of our picture (as this does of the book) and to satisfy, at the outset, the book's lovers of our intentions of faithfulness'. And on page 23: 'All excellent without change as to dialogue, business, construction, up to here'. The book was originally sold in an auction in South Kensington late in 1983 as one of a group of books, mainly Hugh Walpole novels inscribed by the author to David O. Selznick. Given the notes within the book, we can assume this is Selznick's personal copy and as such is a marvellous film and literary connection, especially as Selznick gave Alfred Hitchcock this as his first film under contract. Selznick's wish was to remain true to the novel and this is echoed in the notes on page 23. The film was released in 1940 and won Hitchcock his first Oscar. The book presented here is accompanied by an original poster from the Selznick studios from that year. A marvellous association copy and one which would sit very well in any Du Maurier/Hitchcock collection.

        Rebecca - First Issue - SIGNED by the Author with signed letter from Daphne Du Maurier

      Gollancz, 1938. Hardcover. Very Good. A first edition, first printing published by Gollancz in 1938. A very good+ book without inscriptions. A signature cut SIGNED by the Author (with best wishes) to the front pastedown. Some light wear to the edges, but a very clean copy. In a dust wrapper which has benefitted from some light restoration to the spine ends and corners and now presents as a very good example indeed. Accompanying the book is a letter written on Du Maurier's stationary (Greyfriars, fleet, Hants) and dated October 19th '37. /Dear Sir/It was very/kind of you to write/and tell me what you/thought of "Rebecca"/and I appreciate your/criticism./It is a great encouragement/to know that "Rebecca"/appeals to serious readers,/beside the ordinary novel-/reading public who read/for excitement/Thank you indeed for/writing/Yours sincerely/Daphne du Maurier/. One can only assume that the letter is addressed to a critic or reviewer, given the pre-publication date of the letter in terms of the book itself. A lovely association to the book. The first edition in the original dust wrapper is becoming very scarce indeed.
