      1932 - sending him "a full rough draft on my work at the Ministry of Munitions. It will require a good deal of revision, checking, and probably much cutting down and compression, but also I fear a measure of expansion in some respects after the chapters have been submitted to the energetic man whose work it concerns. Still, it will give you an idea of the kind of work we accomplished. I mean to add a chapter which will have a bearing on the pending discussions about Disarmament. It will dwell on the inevitable time-lag between orders and production. It will be designed to show that if existing armaments are reduced, and the surplus broken up, it will take at least twelve months to equip an army ." sending some chapters which he would very much like him "to re-read them with a view to your seeing what impression the story as a whole is likely to make on a reader. There are some alterations in the Drink Chapter . material additions to the Gun Programme Chapter .", he then deals with specific topics "Financial Crisis", "German and Wilson Peace Notes: . will follow the chapters on the discussions in the Asquith Cabinet in the late autumn of 1916 ." "Mesopotamia: I have a rather harrowing chapter on the conduct of the Mesopotamian Campaign. It will have a bearing on the claim of the soldiers that their failures, were there were any, were largely attributable to the interference of politicians . I hope to send you my chapters on the Strategy and Conduct of the War. These raise the whole issue of the Eastern and Western Fronts . Gollancz suggested to me that I should give the whole of the facts .", the postscript is "Political Crisit 1915. I am not sure whether you have seen this", 3 sides A4, Bron-y-De, Churt, Surrey headed paper, 24th November Norman Collins (1907-1982) was a British writer, and later a radio and television executive, who became one of the major figures behind the establishment of the Independent Television (ITV) network in the UK.

      1932. First Edition . FISHER, Irving. Booms and Depressions. Some First Principles. New York: Adelphi, (1932). Octavo, original green cloth. $2200.First edition of FisherÂ’s work connecting monetary fluctuations to extreme periods of the business cycle.In this work, Fisher puts forth the theory that booms and depressions may stem from “deranged” money, or currency that is behaving irrationally due to various value-skewing factors such as debt, hoarding, confidence, and consumption. Considered “the father of monetary economics” (Pressman, 91), “Irving Fisher was, in the opinion of many, the leading economic theorist in the United States during the first half of the 20th century. Although his contributions to economic theory and to the development of econometrics ensure him a preeminent position among contemporary economists, he was a versatile man. In his day he was equally well-known as social philosopher, teacher, inventor, businessman, and passionate crusader for many social causes” (ANB). Without scarce dust jacket, rarely found. Small notation to front free endpaper.Cloth with small stain to rear panel. An about-fine copy.

Photographic print, measuring 6-1/2 by 9 inches; handsomely matted and framed, entire piece measures 13-1/2 by 16 inches. $8500.Scarce, early photographic portrait of Churchill by E.F. Foley, signed on the mount in pencil by the photographer and additionally signed in pen by Churchill: “Winston S. Churchill 1932,” handsomely matted and framed.This wonderful three-quarter-length, black-and-white photograph depicts a relaxed yet somewhat pensive Churchill sitting with his legs crossed and holding one of his trademark cigars in his right hand. Interestingly, the photographer, E.F. Foley, worked primarily out of New York shooting famous American personalities. Churchill, despite his familial ties in the States, spent most of the early 1930s traipsing around Europe, heavily involved in political and peace causes and researching his biography of Marlborough, making this portrait from that year rather scarce and desirable.

Fine copy in near fine dust jacket (faint soiling to back panel of dust jacket). First edition. Profusely illustrated; folding map in rear. xxix, 397 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. 'the finest thing in Arabian exploration'. In 1931, Bertram Thomas, British Agent at Muscat, successfully crossed the Empty Quarter, the great desert of south Arabia. On hearing of the feat, T.E. Lawrence wrote, "It remained the only unknown corner of the world, and it is the end of the history of exploration. Thomas did it by camel, at his own expense. … Its difficulty can best be put by my saying that no Arab, so far as we know, has ever crossed it". In February, 1932, Thomas published his account of the crossing, ARABIA FELIX, with a Foreword by T.E. Lawrence. In his foreword, Lawrence wrote, "Thomas let me read the draft, and I then did my best to comment usefully; once remarking that the tale was good enough for his journey - no faint judgment, set against what I think the finest thing in Arabian exploration.".

        Autograph letter signed to "Grace, Lawrence, Margot" (Frieda, 1879-1956, wife of the author D. H. Lawrence)

      1932 - (Grace Rogers, the artist) saying that they had written her "such an enchanting trinity of a letter, thank you very much - It pleased me so much that I dashed into Florence & bought some of the paper, that Lawrence and I bought in the past, it may come in useful. Well, I know you will rejoice with me, no operation was necessary so I am a fraud, very glad to be one - I am quite alone & realised how alone one is these days. Orioli & Douglas I think got scared, thinking they might have a really sick woman on their hands, so they went away, but Giglioli the doctor is awfully good. The sun is gorgeous & I wish you could all appear here & I'd show you all the lovely places, one day you must - you sound so jolly and busy - soon I'll come back, I'll let you know when . I feel fit & wont [sic] to win . Medley comes here on the first to take Orioli's & Douglas evidence .", 2 sides 4to., Pensione Bal[l]estri, Firenze, no date circa end of 1931 or beginning of somewhat stained and lacking the bottom corners without loss of text In 1919, while Frieda went first to see her relatives in Germany, Lawrence went to Italy, arriving in Florence on the 19th November. He stayed at the Pensione Balestri till 9th December 1919 and later recommended it to his friends. He also contacted the writer Norman Douglas, who from 1920 to 1937 lived with the Florentine publisher Giuseppe ('Pino') Orioli. Douglas and Lawrence became firm friends, later falling out and reconciling. At the time of this letter, Charles Douglas Medley, 1870-1963, the London solicitor, was acting for Frieda over the probate of Lawrence's will. On the letter, at the head, she has written, upside down, "I don't think I'd like the Pepys spinet, it might be spiteful". Frieda came to London for the probate hearing in January 1932 and wrote to Grace, inviting her to tea at her hotel, and bringing a scarf for her and for her daughter Margot {later Margot Sharman). Grace was a friend of John Middleton Murry, and at the latter's Adelphi Centre Summer School in Essex, in August 1936, gave a talk on 'Society and the Family'.

        [Op. 22]. Quartett für Geige, Klarinette, Tenorsaxophon und Klavier op. 22 Partitur. [Full score]

      Wien... Leipzig: Universal-Edition [PN U.E. 10.050], 1932. Small folio. Original publisher's. Printed note "WEAG [Waldheim-Eberle AG)] 1930" to lower right corner of last page of music. Publisher's catalogue "Werke von Anton Webern," numbered "123" and dated "VII. [July] 1932." to verso of lower wrapper. A presentation copy, with a signed autograph inscription from the composer to title in black ink: "Dr. David Bach herzlichs überreicht von seinem Webern Nov. 1932." From the collection of the noted pianist, teacher and collector Jacob Lateiner (1928-2010), with a note laid in from the distinguished music antiquarian Albi Rosenthal (1914-2004): "for Jacob - as a souvenir of his first (and frustrating) visit to Otto Haas - Albi, London, 12 May 1967." Wrappers slightly worn and soiled. First Edition. Moldenhauer pp. 714-15. "Alban Berg repeatedly assured the composer of his special admiration for this work. On 19 August 1932 he wrote: 'This Quartet is a miracle. What amazes me above all is its originality...' Schoenberg was equally impressed. On receipt of the printed score he thanked Webern for the 'fabulous piece.' Today theorists recognize the Quartet as a masterpiece of formal construction." Moldenhauser pp. 426-27. Dr. David Josef Bach (1874-1947), an important figure in Viennese cultural life in the first quarter of the 20th century, was a significant patron of the arts, an academic, and a writer who championed the dissemination of the arts to the masses. Many important musical and visual artists were indebted to his patronage and support, including Webern, Schoenberg (who wrote an atonal birthday canon of 21 measures for him in 1934) and Oskar Kokoscha (who executed a portrait of him). "As a boy, Bach was a close friend of the young Arnold Schoenberg, who later named him as one of the three friends (the other two were Oskar Adler and Alexander von Zemlinsky) who greatly influenced him in his youthful explorations of music and literature... An active socialist dedicated to making the arts accessible to the working classes, it was D.J. Bach who instituted the Arbeiter-Symphonie-Konzerte ('Workers' Symphony Concerts') in Vienna in 1905. His wide-ranging activities earned him the hostility of right-wing groups, who denounced his artistic programme as part of a 'Jewish conspiracy' to undermine traditional Austrian culture. Such accusations were all the more vehement because D.J. Bach was also one of the earliest members of the Vienna Psychoanalytical Association which met under the aegis of Sigmund Freud and whose members were mostly Jewish... Music was, and remained, his central focus, and it was he who founded the amateur Vienna Singverein ('Vienna Choral Society') in 1919. This organisation, together with the Arbeiter-Symphonie-Konzerte and the 'Workers' Music Conservatoire', flourished until all were disbanded upon the new fascist government's outlawing of the Social Democratic Party and imposition of an authoritarian constitution in 1934. Anton Webern was active as a conductor of all musical organisations, and developed a close and enduring friendship with D.J. Bach..." Wikipedia.

        Devil's Highway, The

      New York D. Appleton 1932 First Printing, with the number (1) in parenthesis on the final page. 8vo; [6], 336pp. Publisher's crimson cloth, the spine and upper cover lettered in gilt; in the original illustrated dust jacket priced at $2.00. A Near Fine or better copy, very lightly rubbed and dust-soiled; in a just about Fine, lightly edge-worn jacket. Near Fine+ Little read today, the novels of Harold Bell Wright outsold those of every other American writer during the first quarter of the twentieth century. Newspapers of the day claimed Wright was the first author to write a novel that reached a million sales, and the statement cannot be far wrong. (The Devil's Highway, on the other hand, sold very few copies, making it today one of the most difficult of Wright's titles to obtain, in any condition.) John Lebar was the pen name of Wright's oldest son, Gilbert Munger Wright. In the Devil's Highway, they launched a scathing attack on "scientism," the belief that, in due coarse, all human misery will be solved by science. As such, the book can be seen as an attack on Nazism, Fascism and Communism, all then taking root, and more broadly on any effort to displace old-fashioned values with modern, scientific ideas. Interestingly, Ronald Reagan was one of Wright's most devoted followers. Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        "The Lapp Woman wrote few words on a dried Stockfish"

      [London]: , 1932. Little Gerda and the Lapp Woman from "The Snow Queen"Illustrated on page 32 of Arthur Rackham's Hans Andersen's Fairy Tales (1932)RACKHAM, Arthur, artist. "The Lapp Woman wrote few words on a dried Stockfish" [London, 1932.]. Original pen, ink and blue watercolor drawing, signed lower right. Image size: 8 x 7 1/2 inches: 204 x 191 mm.Published as the black & white illustration on page 74 of Hans Andersen's Fairy Tales Illustrated by Arthur Rackham, [London, 1932]."And when little Gerda had been warmed, and had had something to eat and drink, the Lapp woman wrote a few words on a dried stockfish, bidding Gerda to take good care of it, tied her on the reindeer again, and away they went. Flash! Flash! it went up in the sky. All night long burned the beautiful blue Northern Lights"In this marvelous watercolor, Gerda and the Lapp woman are sitting in the little hut which has vegetables hanging from the low wooden beams. Gerda is dressed in a pretty blue and white dotted dress, and is sitting with a bowl and spoon on her lap. She is looking at the Lapp woman who is holding the dried stockfish, writing on it with a quill. The Lapp woman is dressed in a red top, blue skirt and red and blue striped headscarf, and is wearing big round glasses on her long nose. The Lapp woman with her wizened hands and feet are the focal point of the picture, the whole scene giving the impression of warmth and intimacy between the little girl and the Lapp woman.This fine watercolor appeared in the book on page 74 as a black and white drawing. As was often the case, Arthur Rackham has added background and full watercolor to the image in order to enhance its salability.

        The Art of Edward Weston

      New York: [Will A. Kistler Company] for E. Weyhe, 1932. A fine presentation copy of the limited edition, number 48 of 550 copies, printed on Artisan enamel paper by Champion Paper, photographic reproductions by the Los Angeles Engraving company, binding by Earle A. Gray. Light toning and wear to binding, some pale foxing as often, lacks original slicpase but with modern cloth slipcase. Folio. Foreword by Charles Sheeler, Appreciation by Lincoln Steffens, Prophecy by Arthur Miller, Estimate by Jean Charlot. 12pp. text, 39 photographic plates. Original printed paper-backed black boards. A fine presentation copy, inscribed by Weston to Lewis Milestone on the epigraph leaf facing the title. Milestone (1890-1980) is renowned for his direction of 'Two Arabian Knights' (1927) and 'All Quiet on the Western Front' (1930) -- both of which received Academy Awards for Best Director. Milestone apparently re-gifted the book, as the half-title bears his inscription "To the Roberts, Milly." A fine association, linking Weston (who early in his career worked in Hollywood doing stills for films) to the celebrated director Lewis Milestone.
