in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Desert Rat Scrap Book (or DRSB) was a (roughly) quarterly, southwestern humor publication based in Thousand Palms, California. DRSB was published in editions of 10,000 to 20,000 copies, whenever its creator, Harry Oliver had sufficient material, and money enough to pay the printer. Forty-six issues were printed and distributed via Southern California bookstores and newsstands, and by mail worldwide. DRSB was devoted to lore, legends, lies and laughs of the American Southwest region, especially featuring prospectors and other desert rats. The publication was launched in late 1945 and ran through early 1967." -- wikipedia

1 edition published in 1930 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Liliom, a merry-go-round barker at a Budapest amusement park, becomes enamored of Julie, a servant girl, and though under the influence of Madame Muskat, a sideshow entrepreneur, he marries the girl. Although he has not been a good provider, Liliom is spurred into action by the discovery that his wife is pregnant and eventually is influenced by his friend Buzzard, to rob a bank cashier so that he can take Julie to America. The plan goes wrong, and rather than be caught, Liliom kills himself and is carried by a celestial express to heaven. En route, he is accosted by the Chief Magistrate and is accorded another chance of ten years on Earth. When he returns, Julie does not know him, and resents his frantic attempts to enter her garden. Time demonstrates that promises of reform are useless, and he is returned to the heavenly train, where the Chief Magistrate convinces him that he can make his wife and daughter happy only by leaving them with cherished memories"--AFI catalog, 1921-1930

Tess of the storm country( Visual )

1 edition published in 1932 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"After a ship's mate violently kisses Tess, the daughter of the ship's skipper, Captain Howland, the skipper decides that Tess is now too old to remain on a ship with a male crew. Although they are loathe to live on land, the skipper and Tess fix up a house at Rock Bayou, a squatter's haven on the East coast of the Storm Country. When bad-tempered, wealthy Frederick Garfield sees that the Howlands' home is on his property, he has the house burned. The skipper then purchases a squatter's hut with the last of his savings. He forbids Tess from joining him and Ben Letts, who helped them get settled, as they go net fishing, which is against the law. Tess, however, sneaks onto the boat, and the next morning rescues a man after his motorboat has hit the net and capsized. Later, the man, Frederick Garfield, Jr., goes to Tess's home to thank her, but when she learns that he is the son of the man who burned their house, she angrily throws him out. Their subsequent struggle is interrupted when Fred's father arrives with the game warden. After confiscating the skipper's torn nets, the warden threatens him with jail if he finds him net fishing again. During the Saturday night Yacht Club dance, Letts finds Tess listening to the music from across the water. She rebukes his flirtations and proposal, and when he then struggles with her, Peppy, her monkey, hits him on the head with a rock. When the irate father of three sisters whom Fred is drunkenly trying to court, chases him with a shotgun, Tess hides him in her hut. She slaps him after he kisses her, but when he apologizes, she seems genuinely interested to hear him talk about college. Meanwhile, the skipper, Letts and another man, Ezra, are surprised while net fishing by the warden and Dan Taylor, who is the secret sweetheart of Fred's sister Teola. Letts shoots and kills Dan and then hides in a cave after threatening Ezra if he talks. After the skipper is convicted of Dan's murder, Fred travels to the state capital to arrange for a new trial. When Tess sees Teola jump off a bridge in an attempt to kill herself, she rescues Teola and sends for Martha, a cynical midwife, who delivers Teola's child. After Tess promises not to reveal her secret, Teola leaves the baby with Tess and returns home. Letts again asks Tess to marry her, and their subsequent struggle is broken up when Fred returns and throws Letts out. Fred believes Letts's claim that the baby is his and Tess's despite her denial. When the baby becomes ill and needs medicine and better food, Tess visits the Garfield home to tell Teola. As Tess is taking milk and eggs from the refrigerator, Teola's father finds her, calls her a 'dirty little thief, ' slaps her and sends her off, as Teola watches. When Martha tells Tess that the baby will die and will go to the Devil because he has not been baptized, Tess carries him through a rainstorm to the church where a baptism attended by the Garfields is taking place. Teola then cries out that the baby is hers and has him christened Daniel. After Ezra, prodded by Fred, reveals that Letts shot Dan, the skipper is freed. Back on a ship, the skipper gives orders to Fred, who kisses Tess as he carries them out"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940
