        6 June 1932 typed signed letter from Churchill to his publisher, George G. Harrap, submitting the draft of the first chapter of the first volume of Marlborough: His Life and Times

      Chartwell, Westerham, Kent, 1932. TLS. ?You will, I do not doubt, welcome the arrival of Chapter I?? This typed, signed letter from Winston S. Churchill to his publisher, George Godfrey Harrap, ostensibly accompanied submission of Churchill?s first chapter of the first volume of Marlborough: His Life and Times. The letter, on Churchill?s Chartwell stationery, contains 23 typed lines in two paragraphs, dated ?6th June 1932?, and concludes with Churchill?s holograph valediction and full signature in black ink. Condition of the letter is excellent, clean with no loss or tears, with a single vertical and single horizontal crease consonant with folding for original posting. Winston Churchill's monumental biography of his great ancestor, John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough, was initially conceived a full 40 years before publication of the fourth and final volume. Churchill originally considered the idea of the biography in 1898, returning to it in earnest in 1928. Marlborough ultimately took 10 years of research and writing and is the most substantial published work of Churchill's "wilderness years" in the 1930s. This decade saw Churchill pass into his sixties with his own future as uncertain as that of his nation. It is perhaps not incidental that Churchill?s great work of the 1930s was about a great ancestor. Churchill may have wondered more than once if the life history he was writing might ultimately eclipse his own. Richard Langworth says "To understand the Churchill of the Second World War, the majestic blending of his commanding English with historical precedent, one has to read Marlborough." The work was well received. Two months after Volume I was published, on 12 December 1933, T.E. Lawrence wrote to Churchill: ?I finished it only yesterday. I wish I had not? The skeleton of the book is so good. Its parts balance and the main stream flows? Marlborough has the big scene-painting, the informed pictures of men, the sober comment on political method, the humour, irony and understanding of your normal writing: but beyond that it shows more discipline and strength: and great dignity. It is history, solemn and decorative.? In this letter, Churchill sets context for the first chapter he is submitting and expresses confidence in both his writing and his approach to his subject: ?We have taken a great deal of trouble in verifying all the original sources, and as you see we have upset the long-accepted statements of the historians on numerous points of fact. The chapter is quite different from any of the opening chapters in other books on Marlborough, and may well go into print without further delay? it will be easier to fit the actual references in their proper places when we see the chapter in print.? Churchill took his task, and his research, seriously, as evidenced by his reference in this letter to the research substantiating his writing: ??Mr. Ashley has assembled an immense amount of material covering the whole field and including a great many documents which have never before been published.? Journalist and historian Maurice Percy Ashley (1907-1994) was Churchill?s research assistant from 1929 to 1933. Churchill often vexed his publishers by pushing deadlines. Churchill closes his letter providing some reassurance on this score: ?The second chapter is far advanced and I hope to let you have it in about a fortnight? I have every intention of completing my task in time for publication in the autumn of 1933." This deadline would be met. The first volume of Marlborough was published in October 1933 and the last on 3 September 1938. His publisher, George Harrap, died the next month and a year later Churchill was called back to the Admiralty, laying aside ancestral biography for the work of cementing his own place in history.

      1932 - SCHOENBERG, Arnold. Klavierstueck. (San Francisco: New Music), 1932. Folio (10-1/2 by 14 inches), staple-bound as issued, original yellow paper wrappers; pp. 7. $2000.First edition of Schönberg's final composition for solo piano, inscribed on the first page of the piano score: "For Mr. James P. Murphy's music collection. Arnold Schoenberg. August 1950."Schönberg wrote Op. 33b, part of a pair of piano compositions also including Op. 33a (1929) slated for an anthology, "during a stay in Barcelona. In his Piano Pieces, op. 33, Schönberg makes consistent use of a technique which combines twelve-tone rows, in which two forms of a row can be used at the same time without repeating individual tones. This expanded the number of possibilities for combination while also preserving the conclusiveness of the twelve-tone writing. The relatively short duration and unity of the pieces are reminiscent of romantic forms: the "Intermezzi" by Johannes Brahms, for instance, whom Schönberg greatly esteemed. The first piece in op. 33 has a rather impulsive and brilliant character, the second is restrained, more lyrical. A closer formal examination of the work clearly reveals the traditional origin of its elements. For example, op. 33a begins with a theme that consists of six chords; after a transitional passage this theme is played a second time one octave higher. A brief linking section is followed by the second theme, distinguished by a melody in the bass and a characteristic model of accompaniment. After the melody is repeated in the treble, a short developmental section begins, followed by a recapitulation in which the first theme can be heard in broken chords. The condensed sonata form is easily recognisable from the combination of two themes, a kind of elaboration and the recapitulation. Schönberg's op. 33b is structured according to altogether similar principles, although here the second theme appears before the first in the recapitulation. His final compositions for solo piano demonstrate his endeavours to fit new musical ideas into traditional contexts" (Arthur Schoenberg Center, Vienna). Promotional sheet for New Music Edition Orchestra Series with subscription clip-off laid in.Mild toning to wrappers. A near-fine copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Picture Map of China. ????

      New York.: Friendship Press.. 1932.. Wall-sized pictorial map, 37 1/4 x 48 1/2 inches on sheet 38 1/4 x 49 3/4 inches (97.5 x 126 cm), originally folded, now archivally mounted on linen. Evidence of some minor chipping to folds, now minimsed. Color pencil additions to the map outlining two regions. A good example of the scarce 1932 pictorial map of China by Frank Randolph Southard published by Friendship Press, the publishing arm of the National Council of Churches in New York. The map was designed as a teaching tool in classrooms and in this vein the added color on the copy offered here delineates a section of northeast China and a large swath of western China. The map is on a scale of 1:16,000,000. The outside border of the map shows various Chinese symbols such as the yinyang, the wheel of law, the pearl, long life etc. The inner border shows scenes of life in China: at home, at work, at school, in the street. The map itself is quite schematic, showing elevation pictorially, rivers, major cities. Listed in WorldCat at only three libraries, the scarcity of this map is no doubt due to its size and its practical application. A handsome map with much interesting commentary on the Western view of China in the years before World War II. .

        [Photo Album]: New England and Dartmouth College

      New England. Oblong octavo. Flexible brown green boards with "Photographs" and "Souvenir of Atlantic City" in gilt. Near fine. A collection of 89 sepia toned photos measuring 4.75"x 2.75"and 11 sepia toned pictorial postcards measuring 3.5" to 5.5" as well as two road maps of Kentucky. The photo album is from an unnamed female student's graduation from Dartmouth College and the subsequent roadtrip she and her family through New England. The road trip begins in Cape Cod, with photographs of Massachusetts National Cemetery included, with close ups of headstone engravings and scenic views, before the family travel onwards to Cadillac Mountain in Maine, Glen Ellis Falls in New England, and the birthplace of President John Coolidge. The postcards show views of various buildings that make up her alma mater, with each building's title printed on the bottom edge. Also included are two maps, the first 'A Scenic and Historic Road Map' published by Kentucky Progress Commission in 1932. It includes black and white photographs of significant land marks and views on route, as well as a coloured road map of Kentucky on the reverse. The second map also has black and white photographs on one side, with a larger and more detailed map on the reverse, with the route the family chose picked out in blue pencil. An interesting collection given it provides a direct insight into how people conducted a road trip and how they perceived such landmarks as Echo Lake in their time, but it is made all the more significant by depicting a woman graduating college -- a concept that was still new at the time. .

        King of the Golden River, The

      London: George Harrap & Co., 1932. - One of 575 Copies Signed by Arthur Rackham[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. RUSKIN, John. The King of the Golden River. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. London: George Harrap & Co., [1932]. One of 575 copies signed by Arthur Rackham, this being copy No. 385. Octavo (8 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches; 222 x 146 mm.). 47, [1] pp. Four color plates and fifteen drawings in black and white. Original limp vellum. Pictorial endpapers in green and white. Top edge gilt, others uncut. Covers very lightly dust-soiled, otherwise a fine copy. Chemised in a green cloth slipcase with red morocco gilt lettering label.John Ruskin (1819–1900), "English author and artist, whose The King of the Golden River might be regarded as the first English fairy story for children. Though it was not published until 1851, seven years after Francis Paget's The Hope of the Katzekopfs, it was in fact written in 1841 for 12-year-old Effie Gray, whom he later married. It is a story of the three brothers of tradition, two bad, the youngest good, and their reception of a supernatural visitor, the South West Wind. Ruskin described it himself as ‘a fairly good imitation of Grimm and Dickens, mixed with some true Alpine feeling of my own’, but the South West Wind is a powerful and original character, described by Stephen Prickett [in Victorian Fantasy (1979)] as the ‘first magical personage to show that combination of kindliness and eccentric irascibility that was to appear so strongly in a whole tradition of subsequent literature’. Richard Doyle, who illustrated the original edition, made a striking drawing of him. Edgar Taylor’s translation of the Grimms’ stories with illustrations by George Cruikshank was published in 1823; in Praeterita Ruskin recorded how he had copied these when he was 10 or 11. The book was reissued in 1868 with an introduction by Ruskin in which he spoke of the value of the traditional tales, with their power ‘to fortify children against the glacial cold of selfish science’—a sentiment which lies at the heart of his own story" (The Oxford Companion to Fairy Tales).Latimore and Haskell, p. 67. Riall, p. 176.

        Ms. Brief mit eigenh. U. München, 22. XII. 1932.

      1932. 2¼ SS. auf 2 Bll. Gr.-4to. Mit ms. adr. Kuvert. An den Dirigenten Hans Knappertsbusch: "[...] Heute in der Hauptprobe zum 'Christelflein', die bis dahin ohne die geringste Störung verlief, und von mir nur mit sehr wenig Unterbrechungen geleitet wurde, sah ich vor einem wichtigen Geigeneinsatz, daß verschiedene Herren von der ersten Geige das Instrument nicht spielbereit hatten und auf die Bühne sahen, und rief, zu den ersten Violinen gewendet, das Wort: "Geigen", damit der Einsatz präzis kommen solle. Daraufhin rief mir der erste Konzertmeister König laut zu, ich solle das anders sagen, und ich sei gereizt. Bei der sich nun ergebenden Kontroverse blieb Herr König bei seiner Behauptung, fügte hinzu, ich sei bissig, wiederholte dies mehrmals, als ich mir das verbat, bis ich die Kontroverse damit abschloss, dass ich seine Behauptung als unverschämt zurückwies und weiter probierte. Ich brauche wohl nicht extra zu versichern, dass von einer Gereiztheit oder gar Bissigkeit bei mir nicht entfernt die Rede sein konnte, dass vielmehr die Behauptung des Herrn König vollständig aus der Luft gegriffen war. Ich bin begierig, durch welchen Beweis jene Behauptung erhärtet werden kann. Vielmehr scheint mir die Sache so, dass gegen mich im Staatsorchester eine renitente Stimmung herrscht, die sich weiter nicht erklären lässt als höchstens dadurch, dass ich überhaupt während der Proben gelegentlich einen musikalischen Wunsch äussere. Das gilt den Herren anscheinend schon als Beleidigung. Und nun drehen Sie den Spieß um und behaupten, es liege an meinem 'Ton', wenn sie sachlich nichts dagegen sagen können. Hierbei nun wieder stützen sie sich auf eine längst gegen mich in Schwung gebrachte Mär, die ich nun endlich geradewegs als eine boshafte Verläumdung [!] bezeichnen muss, nämlich dass mit mir persönlich schwer umzugehen, ich schwer zu befriedigen, ständig gereizt, und was dergleichen mehr ist, sei [...]". - Auf Briefpapier mit gedr. Briefkopf.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Lersch"). Bodendorf an der Ahr, 7. VII. 1932.

      1932. 1¼ SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-8vo. Mit einer Beilage (s. u.). An den Schriftsteller und Regisseur Hanns Maria Braun (1810-187): "Werter Kollege, darin haben Sie nicht Unrecht, daß ich Briefe gern beantworte, trotzdem es eine komische Sache ist: Wenn ein Nachbar kommt und sagt: Grab mir nach Feierabend ein Stück Feld um oder hilf mir mein Fahrrad flicken - so tu ich es sehr gern, denn es ist - gegen die Tagesarbeit eine schöne Ablenkung. Kommt aber ein Nachbar zu einem Nachbarn, der den ganzen Tag gegraben oder Fahrrad geflickt hat, der sagt, na, hast du keinen Brief zu schreiben oder so was? Das wär eine geistige Ergänzung zur Tagesarbeit. Also wenn schon schreiben, dann muß es Sinn haben [...]". - Heinrich Lersch war 1914 mit seinem Gedicht "Soldatenabschied" bekannt geworden, "in dem er der Kriegsbegeisterung der Arbeiter Ausdruck verlieh. Nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg kam Lersch in Kontakt mit dem Bund der Werkleute auf Haus Nyland, nahm jedoch eine ablehnende Haltung gegenüber dem Klassenkampf ein und schilderte u. a. in seinem autobiographischen Roman ‚Hammerschläge' (1930) die Lebensbedingungen der Proletarier, die Erfüllung in ihrer Arbeit finden. Er schloß sich den Nationalsozialisten an, die ihn 1933 in die Deutsche Akademie der Dichtung aufnahmen und seinem Werk zu großer Popularität verhalfen" (DBE). 1933 neben 87 anderen Schriftstellern ein Treuegelöbnis für Hitler unterzeichnend, unterstützte er folgerichtig im Jahr darauf einen "Aufruf der Kulturschaffenden" anläßlich der Volksbefragung zur Vereinigung des Amtes des Reichskanzlers und Reichspräsidenten in der Person von Adolf Hitler; 1935 erhielt Lersch den Rheinischen Literaturpreis. - Hanns Maria Braun, häufig unter dem Ps. Johann Gottlieb Dietrich publizierend, war Lektor im Heitz Verlag und Herausgeber der "Kulturpolitischen Rundschau", danach Schriftleiter beim "Völkischen Beobachter" und zuletzt Filmregisseur. Vgl. Kosch I, 911. - Die zwei letzten Zeilen der Recto-Seite von Bl. 1 sowie die oberen Zeilen auf Bl. 2 recto alt ausgeschnitten und mit Tesafilmstreifen erneut eingefügt; beiliegend ein Kuvertausschnitt mit e. Adresse und Absenderstempel.

        [Manuscrit autographe inédit] "Psychologie et linguistique", conférence donnée à Caen le 11 février 1932

      1932 in-4 en feuilles 38 pp. in-4, entièrement autographes, ratures et corrections. Texte inédit d'une conférence donnée le 11 février 1932 dans le grand amphithéâtre de la Faculté de droit de Caen. Pichon y montre, à travers les exemples du temps et de la substance, "les contributions que la grammaire [peuvent] apporter à la compréhension des mécanismes inconscients qui président à l'élaboration de notre pensée". Son idée est que "une langue est par la spécificité de sa grammaire, un système de pensée cohérent différent de tous les autres systèmes humains : c'est en ce sens qu'une langue peut être spécialement qualifiée "d'idiome". On peut dire que dans la période si importante de notre enfance où nous recevons notre idiome, il est donné à notre pensée un ensemble de possibilités fonctionnelles qui influeront à jamais sur les édifices originaux qu'elle pourra individuellement construire". Il déconseille pour cette raison un bilinguisme trop précoce. Il fait auparavant quelques développements sur la notion de genre en français et évoque par exemple combien lui et ses soeurs furent choqués dans leur enfance par la "maladresse d'un traducteur" qui dans le conte de Gustafson "Les Deux poupées" proposait la main d'une poupée à une pelotte et à une brosse : "Je suis persuadé que l'inhabile traducteur lui-même, étant Français, aurait, s'il avait tiré pareil conte de son cru, instinctivement choisi "un peloton" ou "un ramasse-miettes" pour prétendants. Ça, c'eût été admissible !" Cette anecdote-même figure dans la conférence donnée par Pichon le 2 juin 1927 à la Sorbonne. On peut dire que la conférence de Caen est une version abrégée, vulgarisée, de la conférence de Paris (voir notre référence n° 4261), dont il a été retiré les développements sur la forclusion.Personnage d'une grande richesse, d'une infinie curiosité et très complexe, Edouard Pichon est un contemporain et - par son intérêt pour le langage - un précurseur de Lacan, qui lui reprendra - entre autres - le concept de forclusion. Il est l'un des membres fondateurs du groupe de L'Evolution psychiatrique et de la Société Psychanalytique de Paris (dont il fut président de 1935 à 1937). Avec son oncle Jacques Damourette, il est l'auteur d'un monumental Essai de Grammaire française dont la publication s'étala sur près de 30 ans. Il fut également fervent maurrassien tout en étant dreyfusard, et le gendre de Pierre Janet sans être janetien. (Voir à son sujet, E. Roudinesco, Histoire de la psychanalyse en France, t. 1, pp. 297-320). Nota : ce document ne pourra être exporté en dehors de l'Union Européenne sans autorisation préalable du ministère de la Culture, formalité pouvant prendre plusieurs jours. Bon

        [Photo Album]: New England and Dartmouth College

      New England. Oblong octavo. Flexible brown green boards with "Photographs" and "Souvenir of Atlantic City" in gilt. Near fine. A collection of 89 sepia toned photos measuring 4.75"x 2.75"and 11 sepia toned pictorial postcards measuring 3.5" to 5.5" as well as two road maps of Kentucky. The photo album is from an unnamed female student's graduation from Dartmouth College and the subsequent roadtrip she and her family through New England. The road trip begins in Cape Cod, with photographs of Massachusetts National Cemetery included, with close ups of headstone engravings and scenic views, before the family travel onwards to Cadillac Mountain in Maine, Glen Ellis Falls in New England, and the birthplace of President John Coolidge. The postcards show views of various buildings that make up her alma mater, with each building's title printed on the bottom edge. Also included are two maps, the first 'A Scenic and Historic Road Map' published by Kentucky Progress Commission in 1932. It includes black and white photographs of significant land marks and views on route, as well as a coloured road map of Kentucky on the reverse. The second map also has black and white photographs on one side, with a larger and more detailed map on the reverse, with the route the family chose picked out in blue pencil. An interesting collection given it provides a direct insight into how people conducted a road trip and how they perceived such landmarks as Echo Lake in their time, but it is made all the more significant by depicting a woman graduating college -- a concept that was still new at the time. .
