1 LEO EDWIN BROMBERG 1933 - 1936 ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT JOURNAL OF A FAILED BUSINESS TRIP TO CHINA AND THE FOILED PROSPECTS OF A YOUNG LOS ANGELES ATTORNEY AS HE DESCRIBES THE HELL OF HIS FIRST YEARS IN PRACTICE
SHANGHAI CHINA LOS ANGELES CALIFORNIA CA 1933 Fair+ 
On offer is the super, intimate manuscript diary and relic of Depression Era Americana being the handwritten diary of Beverly Hills-Los Angeles area lawyer Leo Edwin Bromberg. This diary is particularly interesting on a number of levels. The journal begins "January 1st 1933 4:00 a.m. Sunday morning. New Years Day here in Shanghai." Begun as a letter to his wife [?] Judy, Bromberg describes his trip retrospectively as it had begun 3 months before, his main companion, a Major T.M. Morass who he is quite taken with, walks along Soochow Creek, Chinese dance halls, his work on a deal for the Shanghai Mutual Life Insurance Co., leaving Shanghai on the 27th of 1933 to Hong Kong, Singapore and then abruptly ending February 9th 1933 to re-start January 3rd 1934 with his return to independent practice still embroiled in bad 1933 insurance business upon his return to California and the 'fiasco of the China trip' and the blow by blow of much of his painful present from managing his brother Irving's trial for buying hot goods [his brother would go on to found the company that would become Sega] to his own return to investing along with his dreaded return to lawyering as a profession. He tends to write until the substance of the year silences him and then he picks up again in the New Year lamenting the year before. It is not until 1935 that his fortunes turn around and he wins a few cases and makes some money. This diary of 46 folio sized pages fully written by depressed Depression era author has had some water damage to the edges of the text block for the most part legible though the odd page with some loss. The rear cover is damaged and half missing but overall the item is Fair+.
