        Maps of the California Gold Region 1848-1857 a biblio-cartography of an important decade

      San Francisco: Grabhorn Press, 1942. Leather Bound. xlii, 153p., 9.75x14.5 inches, foreword, introductory, background maps, alphabetical index, 26 folding maps beautifully reproduced and expertly folded (printed b&w, or monochrome, in colors, the "Ornamental" one hand-colored whether at the bindary or in full photographic reproduction). First edition, one of 300 copies, the binding is green paper-over-boards and blond quarter-calf backing with red leather spine label gilt. Textblock and endsheets are fine and clean, with no misfolding of maps. Externally, there is a small square sunned area to calf on the rear board that may reflect the tanning of the hide used for this copy; but there is also some scuffing (very mild, evened-out scuffing) to spine panel that contrasts to the calf surface on the boards, which has a smooth, pressed look and feel; that oddity makes us wonder if the panel is sandpapered. But the spine label is perfect, the boards likewise, the volume handsome and handleable and we can confidently call it a very good copy.

        An important WWII document signed by Leonid Brezhnev, from the high point of German penetration of the Soviet Union, recommending a comrade for promotion

      [Baku?], December 22, 1942. 8.25" x 11.25". "Typed Document Signed, ""Brezhnev"" as Deputy Dead of Political Administration for the Southern Front, 1 page, 8.25"" x 11.25"", [Baku?], December 22, 1942, in Russian: a recommendation of Roman Yeliseyevich Vuldovich for a promotion. Most typed lines underlined in orange pencil, pin holes and minor tears along left margin do not affect text, light even toning, else very good. Brezhnev writes in full (translated): ""Comrade VULDOVICH has been participating in the war since October of 1941. Before being drafted into the army, he performed managerial and administrative work for some time, serving as the First Deputy Chairman of the Odessa Regional Council of Workers’ Deputies from 1938 through September of 1941. Until September of 1942, he worked for the Military Council Task Force. Since he had a great deal of experience in managerial and business administration work, the Group’s Military Council permitted him to assume the position of Deputy Head of Political Affairs of the Group’s Logistics Section in December of 1941. Over the course of his practical work, Comrade VULDOVICH has shown himself to be an experienced, well-trained worker who sees the big picture, is a self-starter, and is an energetic and diligent political worker. During unit visits, he properly and seriously approaches the elimination of the deficiencies he detects. He is disciplined and exacting with respect to his subordinates. He enjoys well-deserved prestige."" Following the Second World War, Brezhnev was installed as General Secretary for the region of Dnipropetrovsk before becoming a deputy of the Supreme Soviet of the Soviet Union. In 1952, Stalin appointed him to the Central Committee of the Communist Party. A protégé of Nikita Khrushchev (the two first met during the Second World War serving on the Southern Front together), Brezhnev would rise to great prominence following the death of Stalin. Ironically, he would help lead the push to remove Khrushchev from power in the early 1960s. "

Some of the stark close-up portraits of plants are reminiscent of Karl Blossfeldt's work.Original cardboard slipcase sunned. Light water-staining along joints and spine of dust-jacket. Upper corners bumped, thus slightly affecting pages throughout. Text in Japanese. Modern slipcase in very good, original slipcase in good-, dust-jacket in good- to good, binding and interior in very good condition. * Sosaku-hanga ( "creative print") was an art movement in early 20th-century Japan. It stressed the artist as the sole creator motivated by a desire for self-expression, and advocated principles of art that is "self-drawn" ( jiga), "self-carved" ( jikoku) and "self-printed" ( jizuri). As opposed to the shin-hanga ("new prints") movement that maintained the traditional ukiyo-e collaborative system where the artist, carver, printer, and publisher engaged in division of labor, creative print artists distinguished themselves as artists creating art for art's sake.

        Constructive Income Taxation

      1942. First Edition . Signed. FISHER, Irving and FISHER, Herbert W. Constructive Income Taxation. A Proposal for Reform. New York and London: Harper & Brothers, 1942. Octavo, original green cloth, original dust jacket. $3200.First edition, presentation copy, of this book offering a proposal for a new income tax system based on the idea of taxing only “real” income, inscribed by Fisher to a fellow prominent American neoclassical economist and one of his most famous rivals: “To Professor Frank A. Fetter with the compliments and high esteem of Irving Fisher. April, 1943,” in scarce original dust jacket.In this work, Fisher and Fisher offer a persuasive proposal for an income tax system under which money would only be considered income if it was available to the taxpayer, thereby encouraging, above all, saving. Of course, their conception of saving takes various forms, but the idea is for the taxpayer to provide their own security and for the government to encourage that by removing taxation from all funds channeled into the sorts of saving behaviors it endorses. During the war era, with its attendant privation, this sort of do-it-yourself thriftiness made the plan a subject of much interest. Considered “the father of monetary economics” (Pressman, 91), “Irving Fisher was, in the opinion of many, the leading economic theorist in the United States during the first half of the 20th century” (ANB). The man to whom this book was inscribed, Frank Fetter, was an American economist from the Austrian School. His primary work, The Principles of Economics, was responsible for greatly increasing AmericaÂ’s fascination with the Austrian School. His treatise introduced an entire generation to economists including Böhm-Bawerk, von Wieser, von Mises, and Hayek. Fetter was known for his opposition to MarshallÂ’s ideas on land as capital. His reassessment of those ideas have been credited with prompting mainstream economists to abandon the Georgist idea of land as a unique factor of production and the need for a special theory of ground rent. Instead, Fetter supporter a subjective theory of value. He believed in the importance of time preference and criticized Irving Fisher for moving away from the pure time preference theory that he had espoused in The Rate of Interest (1907). This led to a famous (though cordial) feud between the economists. They were, despite their disagreements, both considered to be “neoclassical” economists and they were both American. They had both been signatories on a petition urging Hoover to veto the Smooth-Hawley Tariff Bill, for example. When it came to broad matters of economics they were collegial and, at times, even in complete agreement. Fetter is nevertheless named here on page 215 in the Appendix to Chapter 8 as one of the economists opposed to the ideas outlined within the chapter. Owner signature.Book about-fine, scarce dust jacket very good with wear to extremities and tiny stain and a bit of toning to spine. A most desirable copy, rare with inscription and association.
