        Lovely Margaret Mitchell Typed Letter Signed, written during the Great Depression, includes her handwritten note.

      Atlanta, Georgia, January 5, 1932. 7" x 10.75". "Five typed sheets, typed on one side, versos left blank. 7"" x 10.75"". Dated ""Jan. 5, 1932"", corrections made in pencil. Last page includes a penciled handwritten paragraph and signed in graphite, as ""Peggy"". Near fine but one page with a faded stain.Lovely typed signed letter, written to her mother-in law, ""Mother Marsh"", typed 4 years before her success with her blockbuster novel, Gone With The Wind, and written in the middle of The Great Depression. However even here, in a simple letter to a family member, Mitchell's flamboyant and descriptive writing style is evident, as shown in part:""Flu has a treacherous way of making you feel fine as long as you lie still and weak as a rag after you get up …""""Our doctor is the kind who believes firmly in the efficacy of sweating and John who never needs any hot drinks to make him sweat like a field hand at a hog killing has been wringing wet ever since he went to bed …""""Your Christmas box arrived amid shouts of applause and, to date the contents have been sacred. John always freezes onto the cake and keeps it in his bureau beneath his pajamas and doles me out crumbs at night …""Her letter also illuminates the effects of The Great Depression on her family and the local community:"" … Heaven alone knows when we'll do any more travelling. John is away a lot but never out of the state. We'll have to wait till that mythical 'corner"" is turned and salaries rise again before we go on our travels…""""John had been sunk to the depths, fearing that one of his men, one of our best friends, would have to be let out on the first of this month. There didn’t seem any way, short of printing counterfeit money that he could stretch his budget to include him. But he did manage it though the poor man had his none to large salary cut to about a forth of what it was … of course he had to sell his little car and give up his apartment and go to boarding but, as he says 'you can live on something but not on nothing'. To celebrate still having a job they had a party ... They bought a large roast for Christmas and served roast sandwiches … and had two bowls, nearby, one filled with water cress and the other with the most delicious spring onions ... It was a nice party - quite the nicest I attended during the holidays for everyone was so happy and relieved. And it all goes to show that you do not need to give guests caviar and champagne to make them happy.""A wonderful revealing early letter from Margaret Mitchell, showing her engaging writing style, including a glimpse of the bleak economic period in our history."

        The New Gods Lead.

      Jarrolds 1932 - FIRST EDITION, pp. 288, crown 8vo, original black cloth, backstrip lettered in gilt with very slight lean to spine, dustjacket designed by Rees with faint dustsoiling to white areas notably absent around price to backstrip panel (where there was presumably at one point a repricing sticker), the odd nick or very short closed tear with a tiny scrape to rear panel, very good. The dustjacket, in excellent shape and carrying a marvellous round-table design, is scarce. This was the author's first collection of short fiction, ten scientific romances on a par with H.G. Wells and W. Olaf Stapledon - though with a far more pessimistic vision of mankind's progress than either. The 'new gods' posited by the author are Comfort and Cowardice, the guiding principles of humanity's misdirection, whilst specific developments such as birth-control and the automobile receive sustained vitriol in relation to their effect on human behaviour.

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. .
