        Le Voyage de Babar.

      Paris: Editions du Jardin des Modes, Conde Nast,, 1932. Folio. Original red cloth-backed pictorial boards, titles within the design in black, pictorial endpapers. Illustrated throughout in colour. Slight superficial scratching to rear board, an excellent copy. First edition, first printing. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author at the head of the title page, "A Madame Eleanor Ewing. En souvenir de Vermala. Hommage respectueux de l'auteur Jean de Brunhoff". The recipient was born Eleanor Kitty Andrews (1880-1966); she married Alfred Washington Ewing (1881-1962) in 1912. Her husband was son of the Scottish physicist and engineer Sir James Alfred Ewing, who was a keen mountaineer and took his wife and children to Switzerland for mountaineering holidays. Brunhoff spent long periods of time in Switzerland, attempted to cure his tuberculosis, and died there on 16 October 1937. Montana-Vermala is an area with several sanatoria, as well as ski resort. Le Voyage de Babar is the second of three Babar books published in Jean de Brunhoff's lifetime. His son Laurent continued the series and one occasionally sees examples signed by the younger Brunhoff, but presentation copies inscribed by Jean are of considerable rarity.

        [Two Signed Promotional Letters re: HOW TO WRITE]

      Paris, 1932. Two pages, on two quarto sheets of Plain Edition letterhead. Old folds from mailing, a few small nicks and soft creases, but very good. Two boilerplate typescript letters promoting to booksellers Gertrude Stein's HOW TO WRITE, published the preceding November as the third Plain Edition. Both are signed in ink "A.B. Toklas" in her distinctive hand. One has a date emendation and insertion of recipient's name and address in original typescript by Toklas, and a pencil highlight in the left margin next to the terms is likely the work of the recipient at "Rosengren's Nook [sic] Store" then still located in Chicago. The letters emphasize the book's positive reception, citing and quoting reviews by Marcel Brion and Ellen du Poy. While one might assume a number of such letters were posted at the time by Toklas and Stein, few appear to have survived.

        Vers de Collège.

      Paris: Mercure de France,, 1932. Introduction et notes par Jules Mouquet. Small octavo. Original wrappers. Spine a little tanned and creased, wrappers somewhat marked and ruffled round the edges, sound and internally clean, very good condition overall. First edition, presentation copy inscribed by the editor to Enid Starkie, one of 100 copies on pur fil lafuma, of Rimbaud's student poems. The exceptional association inscription, to the half-title, reads: "A Mademoiselle Enid Starkie, ces excercises scolaires d'un grand poète en vive sympathie litteraire, Jules Mouquet, St-Valery-sur-Somme" ("To Ms. Enid Starkie, these schoolboy exercises of a great poet, with vivid literary friendship..."). Enid Starkie (1897-1970) was to become the chief biographer and literary critic in English of Rimbaud and Baudelaire, though at the time of this book's publication she had only published on the obscure poetry of Emile Verhaeren. Irish by birth, she studied at Alexandra College, Dublin, Somerville College, Oxford, and the Sorbonne, Paris. She graduated to teach Modern Languages (with an emphasis on French) at Oxford and for many decades established herself as a brilliant French scholar. Her biographies of Baudelaire (1933) and Rimbaud (Arthur Rimbaud in Abyssinia, 1937 and Arthur Rimbaud, 1947) played a major role in establishing their reputations among English readers, and she was granted the first Oxford doctorate for Modern Languages for her first work on Rimbaud. She later published on Gide, Proust, and others, was made officer to the Legion d'honneur in 1958 and CBE in 1967, and was well recognised in Oxford circles as an eccentric - a Time magazine article portrayed her as "a brilliant Rimbaud scholar who pub-crawls about Oxford in bright red slacks and beret while smoking cigars." Mouquet also published editions of the juvenile poetry of Baudelaire. Scarce in this issue, rare inscribed, and highly desirable with such an association.

        Tight Lines [SIGNED]

      Los Angeles: Tight Lines Publishers, 1932. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. 8vo, 239 pp, bound in full leather with title and image of swordfish stamped on front cover, top edge gilt. A clean, sound copy, neatly re-backed in closely matched leather, with most of original spine laid down. Inscribed by Bandini under his tipped-in photo "Perhaps this will bring back memories of 'Palatial' days -- Good luck, Ralph Bandini." The inscribee is not named. Bandini (1884-1961) was a pioneer of big game fishing off the coast of California. "Immensely respected by fellow anglers within the newly developed segment of the sport, Bandini championed conservation of California's coastal resources as a member of the state's fish and game commission, was a member of many conservation groups, and served on the board of directors for the storied Tuna Club of Santa Catalina Island….His most enduring legacy to the sport of big game fishing is his writing, in particular his three books entitled Tight Lines, Veiled Horizons, and Men, Fish, and Tackle. These books, privately published and now quite rare, are among the most revealing volumes written about this formative period in the evolution of saltwater game fishing" (International Game Fish Association).

        The King of the Golden River.

      London: George G. Harrap & Co Ltd,, 1932. Octavo (232 x 143 mm). Specially bound for the publisher in green full morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, gilt lettered and banded spine, single-line gilt panel on sides with simple square dot at the corners, top edges gilt, others untrimmed, two-line gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers (the original pictorial endpapers bound in after binders blanks), with the binder's card slipcase. Colour frontispiece and 3 colour plates, black and white illustrations in the text by Rackham. Spine lightly sunned and rubbed. An excellent copy. Deluxe edition, number 1 of 570 copies signed by the artist. This is one of nine "special copies" (see the publisher's handwritten note in the other special copy) in a luxury binding commissioned by the publisher and including a striking full-page original pen-and-ink and watercolour drawing by Rackham (signed and dated "Arthur Rackham 1932"), showing Southwest Wind, Esquire, doffing his hat to Schwartz, one of the two cruel Black Brothers. Describing his artistic method for these "specials", Rackham pointed out that "my little sketches must inevitably be of a light hearted or joking nature... They have to be spontaneous and free handed. The nature of the paper is such that there can be no preparatory drawing and no alterations". Riall comments that "From The King of the Golden River [1932], Harrap issued nine or ten copies, seven being for sale, of a special issue of the first limitation numbers of the limited edition" (A New Bibliography of Arthur Rackham, 1994, p. xvi).

Title (vb); Cast (vb); Synopsis (vb); Musical Program; 5 - 198. This copy has been inscribed by Gershwin with an AMQS on the title page to his lifelong friend George Pallay: "For George Pallay â?? [bar of music] / from / George Gershwin / July 6, 1932." Nicely bound in modern grey cloth with title to spine, original front wrapper bound in (rear wrapper lacking) and with edge tears repaired and filled on this page and the following, otherwise very clean internally and in fine condition overall. Fuld p. 654, indicating that the present score was published on April 29, 1932. An excellent association copy. <br style="">"Of The I Sing" opened in New York City on Dec. 26, 1931 and ran for 441 performances, receiving critical and box office success. Brooks Atkinson's original review in the New York Times called it "a taut and lethal satire... funnier than the government, and not nearly so dangerous." In 1932, it became the first musical comedy ever to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize.  An original musical comedy in two acts, with the book by George S. Kaufman and Morrie Ryskind, music by George Gershwin and lyrics by Ira Gershwin, the songs in the production include: "Wintergreen For President"; "Who Is the Lucky Girl To Be?"; "The Dimple on My Knee"; "Because, Because"; "As the Chairman of the Committee"; "How Beautiful"; "Never Was There a Girl So Fair"; "Some Girls Can Bake a Pie"; "Love is Sweeping the Country"; "Of Thee I Sing"; "(Here's) a Kiss for Cinderella"; "I Was the Most Beautiful Blossom"; "Hello, Good Morning"; "Who Cares?"; "Garcon, S'il vous plait"; "The Illegitimate Daughter"; "We'll Impeach Him"; "The (Senatorial) Roll Call"; "Jilted"; "Who Could Ask For Anything More? I'm About to Be a Mother)"; "Posterity (Is Just Around the Corner)"; "Trumpeter, Blow Your (Golden) Horn"; and "Finale (On That Matter No One Budges)." <br>"George Pallay [was] a Paley cousin and a friend of George's since 1917. Pallay was a bit of a shady character. It was said that he had Mafia connections. A stock promoter and investor who had changed his name from Abramson, he was often part of George's entourage, someone who arranged the tickets, knew the right bootleggers. He was the friend who would get the girl for George and then get rid of the girl for George. Pallay was singularly devoted to George, and no one had been more vigilant during the final days. Pallay had played a  key role at the hospital during [Gershwin's brain] surgery, having been stationed at a desk just outside the operating theater, along with George's agent, Arthur Lyons. As the operation progressed, the doctors would tell Pallay what was happening, and then he would relay the latest update by telephone to the four family members â?? Lee and Ira, and Lee's sister Emily Paley and her husband, Lou, who had just arrived â?? waiting on another floor. At first the news seemed good, and Pallay informed the family that a cyst the size of a grapefruit had been discovered and excised. This seemed to be good news, and the doctors were momentarily optimistic. The news was relayed to the family. Then the surgeons discovered that in fact there remained an embedded tumor. At this point, George's brain was swelling uncontrollably. The outlook was grim. This terrible update was relayed by Pallay to the family." (Katharine Weber, The Memory of All That: George Gershwin, Kay Swift, and My Family's Legacy of Infidelities, New York: Broadway Paperbacks, 2011, pp. 216-217). <br style="">

        Love on the Dole

      The printer's final copy of 'Love on the Dole', with notes and corrections by Greenwood and the earlier titles of "They Call it Love, A Tale of the Two Cities" and "The Lovers, A Tale of the Two Cities", crossed out, with the final title substituted in pencil. Age toned typewritten papers, with two trial title pages mocked up by hand, with some creasing and minor tears. It is bound in simple, seemingly fairly contemporaneous paper boards, with faux leather spine, the boards are clean, but bumped and rubbed to the edges, the spine has damage at the ends and is rubbed. It provides a fascinating insight into the final stages of the novel's development, showing that the title was far from fixed during writing and that the final title seemingly came as a flash of inspiration just prior to publication, with the hastily written pencil title replacing the two carefully lettered earlier efforts. Doubtless the novel would have been influential even without this title change, with its description of the pressures of unemployment and the humiliation inflicted by the means test, but the sheer emotive power and quotability of the phrase "Love on the Dole" must have been a factor in helping Greenwood's novel into the vanguard for social change. It is unsurprising that, along with other key works of the period, such as George Orwell's 'The Road to Wigan Pier', it is credited with contributing to popular pressure for reform which led to the eventual foundation of the welfare state.

        Topper Takes a Trip

      Doubleday, Doran, Garden City 1932 - 325 pages with illustrations by Herbert F. Roese. Octavo (8" x 5 1/2") bound in original publisher's burgundy cloth with gilt spine lettering and front board decoratively blind stamped in original pictorial jacket. First edition. The beloved characters--mortal and immortal--of Topper return in this uproarious romp through the south of France. One of Thorne Smith's best-loved comedies, it proves once again that he is the undisputed master of urbane wit and sophisticated repartee. Cosmo Topper, the mild-mannered bank manager who was persuaded to take a walk on the wild side by the ghosts of George and Marion Kerby in Topper, finds himself reunited with his dyspeptic wife for an extended vacation on the Riviera. But he doesn't have long to enjoy the peace and quiet before the irrepressible Kerbys materialize once again and start causing fracases, confusing the citizenry, alarming the gendarmes, getting naked, and turning every occasion into revelry or melee. Soon Marion decides that Topper as a ghost would be even more laughs than Topper in the flesh. And all she needs to arrange is one simple little murder. Topper Takes a Trip is the 1938 film sequel of Topper (1937) Constance Bennett, Roland Young, Billie Burke and Alan Mowbray reprised their roles from the earlier movie; only Cary Grant was missing (other than in a few shots taken from Topper). A ghost tries to reunite a couple who she had a hand in splitting up in the prior film. It was followed by another sequel, Topper Returns (1941). Condition: Spine gilt dulled, some rubbing and mild soiling to cloth, some minor intermittent thumb-soiling in text. Jacket restored at front panel with some tape repairs to verso, jacket spine tones, some edge wear and soiling to jacket else a very good copy in like jacket. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Findlay, mr. S. V. Hoffman, the Mensing Collection, and in other Public and Private Collections Volume 1 The Eastern Astrolabes Volome 2 The Western Astrolabes

      first edition2 vols.large 4to. (30 x 23 cms.)xviii, [2], iii, [1 (blank)], 304;viii, (305)-609, [1 (printer's slug)]pp., frontispiece plate in each volume plus 153 plates (some folding), 216 figures and photo illustrations through the text, original cream buckram, front covers handsomely gilt blocked wuth astrolabe design, spines gilt lettered, spine just a trifle darkened,lovely copy.Rare, according to Charles Batey (printer to the O.U.P.) only 250 sets were ever produced. Acknowledged by Professor Owen Gingerich (1930- ), Research Professor of Astronomy and of the History of Science at Harvard University, as "the single most comprehensive compendium on the subject which everyone seriously interested in astrolabes should own". Gunther (1869-1940), zoologist and antiquary, initially in parallel with his scientific researches at Oxford University began preoccupied with a vision for a museum of science there. "In 1917 [he] conceived the idea of restoring the Old Ashmolean building to a museum, and his enduring legacy is his foundation there in 1924 of the Museum of the History of Science. In 1915 he had begun cataloguing and photographing old or early scientific instruments and specimens which remained, frequently neglected, in college and university departments. This enabled him in 1919 to mount a temporary loan exhibition of early scientific instruments. Inspired by this exhibition, in 1924 Lewis Evans presented his valuable collection of scientific instruments and books to the university as a core around which the university's own material could be gathered for permanent display in the Old Ashmolean building. Gunther was appointed first curator of the Lewis Evans Collection, and so at the age of fifty-five he began a new career. .... In 1936 he was invited to stage an exhibition in Cambridge, similar to his venture in Oxford. This, along with his survey of the sister university's scientific instruments and memorabilia published as Early Science in Cambridge (1937), sowed the seed which became the Whipple Museum of the History of Science. ....Between 1920 and 1937 Gunther published prolifically, largely at his own expense. This included his cornucopia Early Science in Oxford (14 volumes, 1920-45). .... His Oxford Gardens (1912) and more particularly Early British Botanists and their Gardens (1922) established him as one of the great historians of botany. The Astrolabes of the World (1932), a lavishly illustrated catalogue and the first study of its kind in the field of scientific instruments, was completed after an immense correspondence. For all their shortcomings his works are primary sourcebooks full of unique material, and remain an indispensable starting point for scholars. Meanwhile, his biographies rescued men such as architect Sir Roger Pratt, botanist John Goodyear, and medieval plant painter Apuleius Barbarus from oblivion. .... Gunther was a pioneer of the new subject of history of science but .. stayed aloof from its mainstream (which was textual and philosophical). He concentrated instead on the 'archaeology of science', which was in practice the history of scientific instruments. He is undoubtedly the principal founder of this specialism as a serious academic discipline" [O.D.N.B.]. Loosely inset is an A.L.S. from Gunther, writing from Magdalen College, Oxford, 12 Dec. 1932 to Mr. Tancock, apparently a master at of Wellington College, sending him a copy of his "illustrated Chaucer" [ie. Gunther's Chaucer on the astrolabe : with the original illustrations , O.U.P., 1931], commenting on the content of that book, and suggesting that "it would be most helpful if a few of the very best schools could take the forthcoming Picture Book of Astrolabes for their Libraries. It would show the mathematicians & physicists the kind of instrument from which all angle-measuring instruments are derived, & with which the ordinary trigonometrical surveying methods were practised in the 16th century when the first 'survey maps' were being made. .... it would be kind if you would consult the Librarian as to whether he could subscribe for a copy, perhaps by some method of payment by instalments". Christopher St. J. H. Daniel was an eminent sundial designer and President of the British Sundial Society whose work includes the famous dolphin sundial at Greenwich marking the Queen's silver jubilee, the reconstruction of the vertical sundial at the Tower of London and the Sir Francis Drake commemorative stained glass sundial in Buckland Abbey.

        18 letters signed, 13 with autograph courtesy, 1 signed with a paraph. Prinkipo, Büyükada, France, Norway, Coyoacan, 1932-1939.

      1932. A total of 19 pp. Folio and (large) 4to. In German and English. Highly political letters written during Trotsky's exile to his confidant Albert Glotzer, who, together with James P. Cannon and Max Shachtman, had founded the Trotskyist movement in the USA. Beginning shortly after Glotzer's extensive visit with Trotsky in Prinkipo, they mainly discuss the problems of concentrating the forces of the International Left Opposition against Stalin in Europe and America, the tactics in dealing with moderate parties and groups (the so-called "Centrists"), and the fragmentation tendencies among the American comrades; the final letter concerns the question of a Jewish state to be founded in Palestine.

Mayer: Einheitliche Theorie von Gravitation und Elektrizität. Zweite Abhandlung. 1932. [Weil 185]. 10 of a total of 36 "Sonderausgaben aus den Sitzungsberichten" published under Einstein's name between 1914 and 1932. Such offprints of the session reports of the Academy of Sciences (largely with independent pagination) were presented to the author by the publisher in a limited number as vouchers or dedication copies. - The present offprints date from Einstein's middle and late period at the Berlin Academy. They mainly treat the connection between gravity and electricity/electromagnetism. Einstein strove for a "unified field theory", as the General Theory of Relativity did not allow for properly integrating the electromagnetic field into the geometry of space-time. After a first attempt at a solution in 1925, Einstein tackled the problem again three years later, "only to find that Riemann's conception of space, on which the general theory was based, would not permit of a common explanation of electromagnetic and gravitational phenomena. In a series of papers devoted to the development of 'A Uniform Theory of Gravitation and Electricity' he outlined a new theory of space with a view to the unification of all forms of activity that fall within the sphere of physics, giving them a common explanation. All that would then remain to complete a scientific unison is the correlation of the organic and inorganic" (PMM 416). - The present offprints reach from the first publication after the Nobel Prize to the last but one before Einstein's leaving Germany. Three articles were published in collaboration with Einstein's assistant, Walter Mayer. - One issue with slight crease to front cover, otherwise very fine throughout.

        "I Saw Hitler!"

      New York: Farrar & Rinehart, 1932. First edition. Hardcover. Jacket with amateur tape repairs along spine and top, with some loss of image.. 8vo. 42 black-and-white photographs, that with their captions form an early visual biography of Hitler. Original orange cloth; ORIGINAL PICTORIAL DUST JACKET. FIRST EDITION IN THE EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE DUST JACKET, BY "THE FIRST LADY OF AMERICAN JOURNALISM." Thompson was recognized by Time magazine in 1939 as the second most influential woman in America, after Eleanor Roosevelt. This book is the product of her interview with Adolf Hitler in Munich on 1931 - a severe underestimation of the potential of this "little man," an epithet that compelled the National Socialists to expel her from Germany in August 1934. She was the first journalist to be so treated. Thompson had been angling for an interview with Hitler since 1923, but he had little interest in foreign reporters. By late 1931, though, as his role as Germany's next leader seemed all but ensured, he agreed to meet with Thompson. Thompson's article-"I Saw Hitler!"- appeared in the March 1932 issue of Cosmopolitan, and was quickly reprinted in the present book form. Its underestimation of Hitler did much to divert focus on the reality of his terrifying potential with the American public. Her expulsion from Germany and thrice-weekly column in Ladies Home Journal rocketed her to superstardom, but "I Saw Hitler" testified to another mass delusion: that the "little man" would never be the leader he himself predicted. The dust jacket is scarcely seen in any condition. The present example preserves all of the provocative, and defamatory, text. Its damage (and subsequent repair) is relegated to the blank pictorial areas at top. The jacket text pointedly attacks the legitimacy of Hitler, and paints him as a pathetic character: "When I walked into Adolph Hitler's room, I was convinced that I was meeting the future dictator of Germany. In something less than fifty seconds I was quite sure that I was not. It took just about that time to measure the startling insignificance of this man who has set the world agog…" "Yet, see upon the platform, ungainly, insignificant, with his awkward figure and ridiculous little moustache- "-Ungainly and awkward, that is to say, until he launched upon his theme. Then the little corporal forgets himself. Literally, the spirit seems to enter him. His eyes ablaze, his hands clench; he is mocking, declamatory, pathetic, exhortatory. Never mind that what he says, read next day in cold print, reads like nonsense. "'A speaker's aim,' he says himself, 'should not be to convince philosophers and scientists, but to sway masses.'".

        Photograph Album Documenting Three Cross-County Automobile Trips

      United States and Canada, 1932. Photograph Album. Very good. Over 275 photographs on about 240 leaves contained in a 7" x 11.5" album. Most of the photographs measure 2.5" x 3.5", some are 3.25" x 5"; all are mounted using photo corners. The photographs and album are in nice shape. The album documents three separate lengthy automobile trips made by two young men, possibly from Traverse City, Michigan, in the early 1930s. The first begins on 1 July 1930 and follows their travel through Akron, the Allegheny Mountains, Pittsburgh, Washington DC, New York City, Plymouth, Niagara Falls, Ontario, Duluth, Montana, Glacier National Park, Idaho, Oregon, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Mojave Desert, Grand Canyon, Painted Desert, Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon, Yellowstone National Park, Cody, and Deadwood. The second group of photographs begins on 4 July 1931 and follows their travel through Kentucky, Nashville, St. Augustine, Daytona Beach, the Florida Keys, Clearwater, Ocala, New Orleans, San Antonio, Austin, Santa Fe, and Colorado. The third group of photographs is undated, but presumably from the summer of 1933, and follows their travels throughout Michigan including the Mackinac Straits, Upper Peninsula (St. Ignace, Manistique, Sault Ste. Marie, Forest Lake, Gladstone), Bay City, Cadillac, Benton Harbor, Manistee, Chicago Illinois, Sand Dunes Indiana, Detroit, St. Clair, and Port Huron. In addition to the expected tourist pictures, there are many photos of their car, tents, campsites, picnicking, bridges, ferries, etc.
