Winston S. Churchill
New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1932. First edition. Hardcover. This is the U.S. first edition, only printing, inscribed by Churchill to one of his secretaries. Churchill inked in black on the upper half-title page: “To | Anne Hipwell | from | Winston S. Churchill | 1947”. At the time this book was inscribed, Anne Hipwell was one of seven secretaries who worked for Churchill at Chartwell and Hyde Park Gate (Gilbert, Vol. VIII, p.305). She appears in the Chartwell Visitor's Book and notes and correspondence by her are part of the Churchill Archive. The Archive indicates Hipwell's work for Churchill spanned at least 1939 to 1947 and says of his secretaries “While Churchill worked these other women in his life very hard, occasionally demanding that they stay up late into the night taking dictation, they generally regarded him with great affection… And Churchill genuinely appreciated their help and support.” Indeed, Churchill's biographer, Martin Gilbert, records that Anne Hipwell was one of the secretaries who contributed to his 30 November 1946 72nd birthday gift, “a magnificent bowl of flowers”. We commissioned this exceptional fine binding in full tan-orange morocco. The binding features a hubbed spine, the raised bands framed and decorated in gilt and blind, the upper spine with twin brown morocco spine labels. The beveled-edge boards feature gilt border rule. The contents are bound with gilt-top edge, head and foot bands, and striking orange marbled endpapers framed by gilt-ruled turn-ins. Condition is fine, the binding absolutely flawless, the contents clean apart fr … [Click Below for Full Description]

The Crime Club, Inc. Doubleday, Doran & Company, 1932. The volume is pushed on the spine ends and is lightly edge rubbed.

The dust jacket is uniformly clipped on all corners (price of $2.00 is intact), edge rubbed with wrinkles, a few short closed tears, and shallow spine and corner chips, and the spine is sunned, making the red lettering somewhat difficult to read.

Meeker both outlines the practice of short selling and justifies it from an economic perspective, rejecting the arguments of those who blame it for economic crashes, and instead promoting it as a valuable force in the market which restrains price inflation.

Cocteau was supported throughout his recovery by his friend and correspondent, philosopher Jacques Maritain. Under Maritain's influence Cocteau made a temporary return to the sacraments of the Catholic Church. Cocteau's opium use and his efforts to stop profoundly changed his literary style.

BELDEN, CHARLES J. [PHOTOGRAPHER]
Pitchfork, Wyoming & Taos, New Mexico: Photographed By Charles J. Belden, n. d. (ca 1932). Pitchfork, Wyoming & Taos, New Mexico: Photographed By Charles J. Belden, n. d. (ca 1932)., 1932. First edition. Contains twenty 9 x 14 cm (3 1/2" x 5 1/2") photogravure postcards with undivided backs and printed in Germany and with the photograph copyright by Charles J. Belden. Seventeen of the photo-postcards show views of cowboys at work herding cattle in Pitchfork, Wyoming. Three photo-postcards views are of Native Americans showing them standing in front of the Don Fernando Hotel, a street in Taos Pueblo, and standing in a doorway in Taos. Charles J. Belden (1888-1963) was born in San Francisco into a wealthy California family. He developed a life-long passion for photography when he purchased his first camera to record his travels throughout Germany and Russia after graduating from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 1909. Upon his return to the United States, Belden worked as a cowboy on the L. G. Phelps Ranch in Wyoming. He then went to work on and eventually managed the legendary Pitchfork Ranch near Meeteetse, Wyoming. During his time at the Pitchfork Ranch between the 1920s and 1930s, Belden produced a variety of images that captured life on the dude ranch, including livestock activities, as well as the surrounding western landscape. Many of his western photographs were taken on horseback aboard his reliable pony, Pinkie. He thought this gave him the desired perspective he was hoping to achieve. Belden's photographs have been featured in many publicatio … [Click Below for Full Description]

Huxley, Aldous
Chatto & Windus, London, 1932. First edition of Huxley's masterpiece. Octavo, original blue cloth. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of shelfwear to the crown of the spine. An exceptional example. "A nightmarish prognostication of a future in which humanity has been destroyed by science. easily Huxley's most popular (and many good judges continue to think his best) novel" (DNB). "After the success of his first three novels, Huxley abandoned the fictional milieu of literary London and directed his satire toward an imagined future. He admitted that the original idea of Brave New World was to challenge H.G. Wells' Utopian vision. The novel also marks Huxley's increasing disenchantment with the world, which was to result in his leaving England for California in 1937 in search of a more spiritual life. The book was immediately successful" (Parker & Kermode, 161-62). Named by Modern Library as one of the 100 Greatest Novels of the twentieth century.

Winston S. Churchill
Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1932. This is a strikingly clean, jacketed example of the U.S. first edition, only printing. Churchill's collection of 23 engaging essays on an incredibly wide variety of subjects has been called "The broadest range of Churchill's thought between hard covers" and reflects the two qualities that so characterize Churchill's life - a remarkable breadth of both mind and life experience. The content ranges from personal and political musings to prescient speculation on the future. The original front flap blurb encapsulates – as far as is possible – the wide range of the chapters within: "These true stories concern such things as the tides that make a politician change his mind; the domination of chance in human lives; the cartoonists who mocked Churchill; the chances and events that occurred while he was in the trenches; phases of the war seen from intimate participation with the high commands; flying experiences in 1912; the Irish; the future; and contemporary change." In a 31 May 1932 letter to his publisher about the book, Churchill characterized his book thus: ".although there is no one single theme, it has some of the best things in it I have ever written." Published in the Britain as Thoughts and Adventures, this is one of the few Churchill first editions for which the U.S. edition bears a different title than the British. The U.S. first edition text was photo-reproduced from the British first edition, but everything else about the edition differs markedly from its British counterpart.

1932. 27 x 36 cm, unter Passepartout, 33 x 43 cm, Tadell. Links unten signiert und dat. Bilder des Photographen sind Jakob Tuggener (1904-1988) machte eine Lehre als Maschinenzeichner in Zürich. 1930/1931 studierte er in Berlin an der Reimann-Schule, der damals grössten privaten Kunst- und Kunstgewerbeschule Deutschlands, Grafik, Typografie, Zeichnen, Schaufenstergestaltung und Film.[1] Seine damaligen Arbeiten wurden in der Schulzeitschrift Farbe und Form publiziert.[2] Nach seiner Rückkehr in die Schweiz arbeitete er als Industriefotograf. 1934 kaufte sich Tuggener eine Leica und fotografierte erstmals beim Grand Bal russe in Zürich. Das Thema Tanzball liess ihn während zweier Jahrzehnte nicht mehr los. Er fotografierte Schweizer Nobelbälle im Zürcher Grand Hotel Dolder, im Baur au Lac, im Palace Hotel von St. Moritz und den Wiener Opernball. Daneben widmete er sich Themen wie dem Landleben und der Technik. 1943 schaffte Tuggener mit seinem Buch Fabrik, einem fotografischen Essay über die Beziehung zwischen Mensch und Maschine, den Durchbruch zur Avantgarde der Schweizer Fotografie. Nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg wurden seine Bilder im New Yorker Museum of Modern Art gezeigt und unter anderem in den Illustrierten Leica-Fotografie, "Du" veröffentlicht. Eine erste grosse Gesamtausstellung seiner "Ballnächte"-Bilder fand 1969 in München statt. 1951 gründete Tuggener mit Werner Bischof, Walter Läubli, Gotthard Schuh und Paul Senn das Kollegium der Schweizerischen Fotografen. 010

BLOSSFELDT, Karl.
Berlin: Verlag für Kunstwissenschaft, 1932. Berlin: Verlag für Kunstwissenschaft,, 1932. Quarto. 16 page booklet and 120 loose plates in the original brown card chemise portfolio, decoration and titles to front cover and spine in black. 120 full page photogravures by Blossfeldt. Portfolio lightly toned to edges, otherwise an internally bright copy. First edition, first printing, portfolio edition: the preferred format of one of the greatest and most influential photographic books ever published, this being the second photobook in Blossfeldt's pivotal trilogy. The artist was by training a botanist; his use of extreme close-up technique began as part of his study. However he swiftly developed a fully fledged abstracted aesthetic which found a ready audience around the world. Many subsequent photographers cite his books as a key influence on their work. This loose leaf version is by far the scarcest of all of Blossfeldt's publications and by a margin the most desirable. Roth 101 p48

Signed in pencil by Roosevelt next to his portrait and at the top of the menu. Some light foxing to the front. Brown toning, stains on the blank verso (menu was possibly removed from a scrapbook or some other like collection). Good. Item #18405 Roosevelt stopped in Atlanta in October 24th to give a speech. An excerpt from speech found on the web site georgiainfo dot galileo dot usg dot edu follows: The great warmth of your welcome reinforces the obvious fact that so far as carrying on a campaign to get votes, my visit to this state has not been necessary. However, the purpose of coming down here is not to get votes. My visit to the south is to carry out the purposes of my trips to the west, to the coast and indeed throughout the country, which is not so much to be heard as to hear, and not so much to talk to you as to let you talk to me. It was only natural that in coming to the south I should have as an additional objective a visit to Warm Springs where I have spent so many hours and where I have had the good fortune to make so many friendships that I shall always cherish through life.

Tristan da Cunha.]
1932. 8vo., various paginations mainly 2pp. & 4pp. but a few longer letters, some 100pp. in all, addressed to "Mrs Jose", "Molly Jose" or "Madam", one letter incomplete, all without the original envelopes, together with i) an 8pp. summary (probably in Jose's hand) describing the background to the letters, ii) a letter and envelope sent to Jose from Victoria Forester on Buckingham Palace letterhead and dated 25 Nov. '35, thanking her for sending the Queen letters from "two women in Tristan da Cunha", iii) a single issue of the Tristan da Cunha News Letter for 1932, and two magazine cuttings. In 1919 Mary Jose, who with her husband and children lived at the Vicarage in Lamberhurst, Kent, responded to an appeal in The Times "to send things to the Islanders [of Tristan da Cunha] as for the first time for 2 or 3 years a ship was going . . . I did up a big parcel of things - soap, matches, needles, hair pins, chocolate, tea, tape, etc. - & I wrote a long letter & addressed it to 'An Inhabitant of T. da C.' I enclosed an addressed envelope & papers & said I should so like to get a letter". The resulting correspondence continued for the next 20 years, with Mary Jose sending gifts to the Islanders, and they replying and occasionally sending back gifts of their own. The present collection comprises some of the letters received by Jose in those years, written by members of the small Tristan community - Mrs. R. F. Glass and her children Clement, Mary and Lillian, Frances Repetto (descended from an Italian shipwrecked on the island), Mr and Mrs Arthur Rogers, and their daughter Martha R … [Click Below for Full Description]

Remnants of dust-wrapper on front and rear pastedowns (see scans), and the binding gutters were reinforced decades ago. A good reading copy of a very rare book. Sphinx by David Lindsay London: John Long, 1923 "Second Edition" slug on title page. Other copies say "Third Edition" but these statements are understood not to indicate new printings but to serve to make the one edition seem that it was selling better than it was. This was a practice of some publishers at the time. A bright copy, with foxing (see the scans of the title and fore-edge). There is a small bump on the outer edge of the rear cover--see scan. A very rare edition of David Lindsay's third novel. His first novel was the classic A Voyage to Arcturus (1920).
