        Black Mischief.

Seemingly a difficult edition to find in the dust-jacket and in such good condition. Waugh's third novel, helped to establish his reputation as a master satirist. Set on the fictional African island of Azania, the novel chronicles the efforts of Emperor Seth, assisted by the Englishman Basil Seal, to modernise his kingdom, including the issue of home-made currency and the staging of a 'Birth Control Gala'. Written by Waugh whilst staying at Madresfield Court, Worcestershire as the guest of the Lygon sisters, who after 1931 had the run of the place (their father, William Lygon, 7th Earl Beauchamp, having been forced into exile under threat of prosecution for his homosexuality) and posed for some of the drawings Waugh drew for this limited edition.

        Tigris Gunboats. A narrative of the Royal Navy's co-operation with the military forces in Mesopotamia from the beginning of the War to the capture of Baghdad (1914-17).

      London: Andrew Melrose Ltd., 1932 - Octavo. Original dark blue cloth, gilt lettered spine, map endpapers. With the dust jacket. Jacket with tape repairs on verso, closed-tear across spine and front panel, back panel a little soiled, a few chips and creases, label removed from binding spine, edges lightly foxed yet overall a good clean copy with the errata slip. Portrait frontispiece, 15 plates from photographs, maps in the text. First edition, first impression, very scarce in the eye-catching dust jacket. Tigris Gunboats was greeted with great enthusiasm by The Naval Review in 1932: "This is a book for which many naval officers must have looked, for the account of the work of the Royal Navy on the Tigris, as given in the Official History of Naval Operations, stops with the surrender of Kut. Nothing is told of the work of the gunboats in the re-taking of Kut and the capture of Baghdad. what a record it all is! The daring with which Espiegle remained in the river, ready to form one half of the nut-crackers; the passage of the block-ships below Basra, and the early occupation of that place; the steady movement to Ezra's Tomb; the dash to Amara, a decision worthy to rank with Farragut's "D-n the torpedoes, go ahead!" Then the fighting in the swamps, and another dash to Nasiriya The author won every distinction that can fall to a post captain. He never mentions one of these; but closes a work of the most thrilling interest, and of some quiet humour, with a full and generous word of thanks to all who had given help to him and his."

        King of the Golden River, The

      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.

        Sister Anne.

      Philadelphia: David McKay Company,, 1932. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles and decoration to spine gilt, top edge yellow. With the dust jacket. Frontispiece and 12 illustrations by Katherine Sturges. Bookseller's ticket to rear pastedown. Spine faded, some spotting to edges of text block, contents toned. A very good copy in the jacket with some chips to spine ends and panels. First edition, first issue. With the frontispiece incorrectly published opposite p. 7, rather than than title page. A Fairy Caravan offshoot, this is Potter's version of the tale of Bluebeard. It was withdrawn from The Fairy Caravan due to its length, and Potter now offered it to McKay as a story on its own. Due to her age and poor eyesight, Potter was unwilling to undertake the illustrating of Sister Anne, but was very pleased by the pen-and-ink artwork prepared by Sturges, commenting "Do thank Katharine Sturges from me for interpreting just what I meant!" It was never formally published in the UK, though some unbound sheets were submitted for copyright purposes. It was the last of Potter's books to be published in her lifetime.

      [Moscow: State Publishing House of Graphic Arts, 1932. Folio (41.5 x 30cm). Pictorial wrappers. A good copy only: the extreme lower forecorners are a bit creased and occasionally ragged; the front wrapper has the lower extreme fore- corner chipped away and, there is a short tear near the toe of the spine resulting in the loss of the extreme lower spine corner of the lower wrapper and last leaf; there is a small chip in the lower wrapper at the spine crown; there is an 11 cm internally mended tear in the rear wrapper up from the lower edge and another internally mended 7 cm tear in the fore-edge, each with small chips associated; and one panel of the enormous center four panel gatefold is neatly separated along the fold; still, a reasonably good copy of an issue seldom found in ideal condition. Founded by Maxim Gorky and published in the Soviet Union from 1930 to 1941 (and 1949), under the general editorship of G. Piatakov. An important issue of this innovative periodical, devoted to the Dnieprostroy hydroelectric project, with the 'plan' of the issue by El Lissitsky and M. Alpert. The text is by Boris Agapov, translated for this English version by D. S. Mirsky. Of special note are four preliminary pages in tribute to H. G. Wells. The photographic component drew on a number of official sources, with additional special photography by Alpert and A. Shaykhet.

        Vampyr (Original French still photograph from the 1932 film)

      Paris: Film-Production Carl Dreyer, 1932. Vintage double weight matte finish French still photograph from the 1932 film. Shown is Rena Mandel as Gisele. "Vampyr" was a German-French co-production, and Dreyer, who maintained strict creative control over his films, has production companies in both Berlin and Paris. This photo was issued from the Paris office, with a label crediting Film-Production Carl Dreyer affixed to verso, with the French title of "L'Etrange Aventure de David Gray," the production office's Paris address, and a credit for Mandel. The film was funded by Baron Nicholas de Gunzburg, a German aristocrat and non-professional actor who acted in the lead role under the pseudonym Julian West. Gunzburg plays a student of the occult who arrives to a small village outside of Paris. He finds the village to be rife with supernatural creatures who are luring the townspeople to suicide so that they can become servants of the devil. Dreyer's first sound film, for which dialogue had to be recorded in three languages. As a result very little dialogue was recorded and title cards used for much of the story, with most dialogue and effects added in post production. The film was shot in 1930 and 1931, but its distributor UFA delayed the debut in Berlin until May 1932, as they wanted the American film adaptations of "Dracula" and "Frankenstein" to play first. Shot on location outside of Paris in Aisne, Loiret, and Oise. 6.25 x 8.25 inches (16 x 21 cm). About Near Fine. Criterion Collection 437. Flynn, p. 41.
