        Tibetan Word Book

      Oxford University Press, Indian Branch, London 1943 - Circular blind-stamp of the "Preparatory Research Council / American Aero-Medical Mountain Mission" on the front endpaper and title page. Dust wrapper spine has some tears and losses and signs of label removal.; xvi, 447 pages. Green cloth boards. Page dimensions: 247 x 182mm.The dust wrapper and endpapers are of hand made paper manufactured in Bhutan for the Tibetan market. The front panel of the dust wrapper has the same type setting as the title page. Printed in India. Scarce, particularly with the dust wrapper. Aurel Stein's Preface is dated "Camp, Bahawalpur January 1, 1943". "His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, Jetsun Jampel Ngawang Lobsang Yishe Tendzin Gyatsho, was born on the sixth of June 1935 near Kumbum in the district to the south-east of Lake Kokonor which the Tibetans call Amdo. A visit to Lhasa in 1940 in connexion with his installation gave opportunity for much of the work which has been done on these books. Based on an examination of syllables, the books show how it is that Dalai means Ocean, that Lama means one who is Above All, that Kumbum means the Hundred Thousand Images, that Lhasa means the Place of God, that the word Serthringaso which we render as Installation means the Request to Take Possession of the Golden Throne, and that the names of the Dalai Lama mean The Holy One, The Tender Glory, Mighty in Speech, Of Excellent Intellect, Of Absolute Wisdom, Holding the Doctrine, The Ocean" - from the author's "General Preface". Basil Gould and Hugh Richardson, working for the Indian Civil Service, featured very prominently in the story of Britain's political relations with Tibet in the first half of the Twentieth Century. Hugh Richardson became a notable British scholar of Tibetan history, many of Richardson's writings on Tibetan history were collected in the book "High Peaks, Pure Earth" (1998). For more on the British cadre in Tibet before 1950, see Alex McKay's "Tibet and the British Raj: The Frontier Cadre 1904-1947" (1997), and the works of Sir Charles Bell. ; 4to [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      E. P. Dutton & Co., Inc., New York 1943 - Autobiography and first book by one of our greatest songwriters, author of this country's unofficial national anthem, "This Land Is Your Land." This title, quite scarce in the first edition, especially in dustwrapper, served as the basis for the Hal Ashby film starring David Carradine. Bob Dylan, in his autobiography CHRONICLES, recounts reading BOUND FOR GLORY for the first time: "I went through it from cover to cover like a hurricane, totally focused on every word, and the book sang out to me like the radio. BOUND FOR GLORY is a hell of a book. It's huge. Almost too big." Small owner's address label on the front endpaper, gilt on the front cover and spine strong. The dustwrapper is bright and attractive free from any major defect but for a large chip at the head of the spine, extending to 1-3/4" at its deepest and obliterating nearly all of the title. Near Fine in a Very Good dustwrapper [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      ca 1943. - "8" X 11" broadside issued at the height of World War II, announcing a district fair and rodeo to be conducted over a three-day time period. Sept. 17th was for a combined religious services by all churches for our boys in the armed forces. Sept. 18th was an exhibition of livestock & farm products, Indian arts and crafts, Indian dances, and a rodeo. Sept. 19th was judging of livestock & farm products, Indian pageant & ceremonial dances, and a rodeo. An interesting statement listed on the broadside is DANCING EVERY EVENING, BOTH WHITE & INDIAN. Further noted on the broadside is "This will be the last Indian celebration this year and will be exceptionally good. Remember the dates, Sept.17-18-19th." The nicely colored letterhead is of five decorated teepees, several cooking fires and horses grazing in the foothills. On the reverse side is a very accurate color drawing of an Elk Clan visionary, holding a dance stick and hoop. The vision cult of the Sioux, the Elk Dreamers, possessed powers over the matters of love. The Sioux were impressed with the ability of the bull elk to attract females and consequently regarded the elk spirit as an aid in finding a mate for an Indian warrior. Their dance outfit, which is well executed in this drawing, consists of a triangular mask made of animal skins and antlers made from branches. A hoop and dance sticks with mirrors attached would have been carried as they danced with the belief that the mirrors would catch the sunlight and throw it into a young woman's eyes as she watched the dance. Thus a mate would be found. By the fact that the Elk Clan drawing is on the back of the fair and rodeo broadside may indicate that the Elk Clan were the sponsors of this particular event. A memorable and unique item in near fine condition.
