1 Essad-Bey Stalin. The Career of a Fanatic
New York The Viking Press 1932 First American Edition. Hardcover Very Good (Plus) No Jacket 
New York: The Viking Press, 1932. The third book published under the pseudonym "Essad-Bey" by Lev Nussimbaum (1905-1942). He was a Jew and an anti-Bolshevik who (possibly) converted to Islam. Nussinbaum wrote in German, and became a well-known and successful author. His work now is considered unreliable as history, but the context is rather wonderful. He also (possibly) wrote as "Kurban Said," and died early in Italy. A scarce title. This is a Very Good (Plus) copy of the First American Edition. Translation by Huntley Paterson. Tan cloth binding with lettering in red and black. Clean text; viii, 391 pages, indexed; red topstain. The endpapers have some foxing at the gutter; there is a bump across the top edge, but this remains an attractive copy. Lacking the dustjecket; in an archival plastic protector.. First American Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good (Plus)/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. First Edition.

2 Bey, Essad Twelve Secrets of the Caucasus
New York Viking 1931 First American Edition. Hardcover Very Good Minus No Jacket 
New York: Viking, 1931. Pseudonym of Lev Nussimbaum (1905-1942) a Jewish covert to Islam who has an intriguing biography and is a bit of a biblio-mystery: he is possibly the author of "Ali and Nino," a sort of national romantic epic of Ajerbijan (1937). He wrote in German, and was popular with the Nazis until his ethnicity was revealed. Although prolific, his works are scarce today other than in reprint. This is a Very Good (minus) copy of the First American Edition of Lev's second published work. Purple cloth binding with the figure of a red horseman on the front cover; somewhat faded, enough on the spine so it has turned to brown. Maps of the area as endpapers. Clean text; 828 pages. Quercus adds the Minus grading because the gutters have split; the book remains sound nonetheless. Lacking the dustjacket; in an archival plastic protector. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. First American Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good Minus/No Jacket. First Edition.
