4 ALBERTI, Rafael. MALLAN, Lloyd, trans. Poets of the Year series). Selected Poems of Rafael Alberti. First Edition.
New Directions, New York, 1944,

Unpaginated. 8vo, illustrated blue card covers with red decoration of bull to front cover, red and black lettering to front cover, french flaps. A volume in The Poets of the Year series. "So great has grown the fame of Garcia Lorca that another modern Spanish poet -- Rafael Alberti -- who deserves to rank with hum has been unjustly obscured. Alberti, a friend of Lorca's is now in exile, living in Argentina. It is hard to present an important poet in a brief selection, but Mr. Mallan has made an excellent choice of significant poems from different phases of Alberti's evolution.His early lyrics, his poems in surrealist vein, his great elegy for the de ath of the bullfighter Ignacio Sanchez Mejias, and finally poems inspired by the Spanish Civil War are all represented here. To them Mr. Mallan has prefaced a brief but revelatory account of Alberti's work." - from the front flap. Includes the following poems: "Three Poems from 'Marinero en Tierra':Vendor's Submarine Cry, If My Voice Should Die On Land, and Physical Geogr aphy', "Open Letter", "Buster Keaton Searches Through the Forest for His Sweetheart, a Full-Blooded Cow (A Poem for Recitation)", "Guests of the Mists(Thre Recollections of Heaven, in homage to Gustavo Adolfo Becquer)", "Tha t Burning Horse Through the Lost Forests (An Elegy for Fernando Villalon, 1881-1930)", "To See and Not to See You (An Elegy for Ignacio Sanchez Mejias)", and "Four War Poems: They Fell and Did Not Fall, The Soldiers Sleep, Nocturne, And After the War".

"The m enace of triumphant Nazism and fascism across Europe in the 1930s drove theleft into unity with liberals, in order to make common cause against the e xtremist right.

This collection of essays focuses sp ecifically on France and Spain as the only two countries where Popular Front coalitions won political power through the ballot box. From a comparativeperspective the volume gathers leading experts on the 1930s who travel bey ond the territory of orthodox political history.

April 23, 1697, Staffordshire - d.June 6, 1762, Moor Park, Hertfordshire). "The career of Admiral Lord Anson heralded the most glorious epoch in the history of the Royal Navy. He was the first of the great eighteenth century admirals, preceding Rodney, Howe,St. Vincent and finally Nelson, whose mighty victory at Trafalgar set the seal on a process which was based not only on those qualities of seamanship, command and heroism which they all, without exception, possessed, but equally important, on the reorganization of the navy itself. [...] Anson was asailor in the tradition of Drake and Hawkins and his early life reads like the saga of a successful buccaneer. When in 1740 he was sent to harry the Spanish American possessions, he achieved not only this specific objective,but came home, after an epic voyage of circumnavigation involving terrible losses and setbakcs surmounted through leadership and resolve, with the ri chest prize cargo in history. [...] Later he was appointed to the Admiralty, where he served, with only a short break, from 1745 until his death in 1762, eventually becoming First Lord. In this capacity he introduced many reforms, salvaging the Navy from its moribund state and earning for himself the title 'Father of the Navy'." - from the dustjacket.
