Reichstagung in Nürnberg 1934.
First edition. A handsome substantially photographic tribute to the 1934 Nazi party rally at Nuremberg, aiming to display the physical and military strength of the new Germany both to the German nation and the rest of the world. The numerous images cover all aspects of the rally, including images of the leaders, the reception of the world press, different factions of the Nazi party including Hitler Youth, the SA and SS, and marchers, as well as the enthusiastic crowd and images of the celebrations.
Seizing upon Nuremberg’s historical role as centre of command, some images of traditional kingly and imperial garb are included, tacitly showing that Hitler is following in a legacy of legitimate rule.

REMEMBER, REMEMBER, THE FIFTH OF NOVEMBER… [WILLIAMS, John.]
The History of the Gunpowder-Treason, collected from approved Authors, as well popish as protestant.
First edition of an anti-popish history of the Gunpowder Plot. A well informed account drawing on both Anglican and Catholic sources, The History of the Gunpowder-Treason was published anonymously by John Williams (1633/6–1709), later Bishop of Chichester, amid renewed interest in the subject during the purported Popish Plot of 1678 to 1681. A prolific controversialist and staunch defender of Anglican protestantism, Williams used his History to urge readers not to forget the events of 1605, nor to disregard the perceived (and subsequently disproved) papist threat.
