        Ms. Brief mit eigenh. U.

      München, 22. XII. 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.

      London: G. P. Putnam's Sons,. [1932]. Octavo, pp. [1-8] [1] 2-487 [488: printer's imprint],. original black cloth, spine panel stamped in gold.. Very faint damp mark at top edge of front panel, else a fine, bright. copy in very good plus first issue pictorial dust jacket (cream paper. stock printed in black with woodcut illustration of Devil's Tor on. front panel) with light edge wear, mostly at spine ends and corner. tips with small internal tape mends, light dust soiling, and clipped. price. An uncommon book seldom found in dust jacket. (#103566). First edition, first binding. The fifth and final novel published during Lindsay's lifetime. Though boring, the work has its memorable pages, even chapters according to Colin Wilson who spent two years getting through it. E. H. Visiak stated that he initially believed that the book was almost unreadable, but upon rereading it -- slowly -- he found it fascinating and was so impressed that he wrote a fifty page critique of the novel. Brian Stableford says the novel is "marvelously atmospheric and admirably conscientious in its design of a hypothetical mythology and the metaphysics to go with it." E. F. Bleiler considers DEVIL'S TOR to be Lindsay's "magnum opus." Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 3-218. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1022. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 140.

        Dielma, with ALS and original manuscript poem laid in

      Duckworth, London 1932 - London: Duckworth, 1932. First edition, in jacket. ALS by the author, with an original poem to the recipient, laid in [see story, below]. Octavo, 88 pp. Bright blue cloth, gilt spine lettering. Spartan cream jacket (now toned). Near fine; paste foxing at endpapers, no othernotable flaws. Jacket is better than good, age-toned as noted and with a few smallish chips. See scans. This is the earlier Harry Clifton, namesake of the current Irish poet by that name. This one (the earlier Harry Clifton) became the inspiration for W.B. Yeats' famous 1938 poem, "Lapis Lazuli (For Harry Clifton)" after he (Clifton) gave Yeats a Lapis Lazuli carving. Clifton was particularly adroit at poems honoring - and marveling at - women, a talent to which the contents of "Dielma" will attest. There's more. Laid in is a letter from Clifton, on stationery of the Hotel St. Francis in San Francisco, to a Miss Patricia T___, with an original manuscript poem to her at its end. The letter begins: "Dear Patricia - I am sending you a poem, of you, to you. Of course, do not imagine that I know whom you are like; you may resemble Aphrohodite of the Golden Girdle, or Queen Neferte (sic) really." he goes on to say, among other things, that he's writing to England to have a copy of Lord Dunsany's "The Queen of Elfland's Daughter" (sic; actual title was "The King of Elfland's Daughter") sent to her. The Poem is entitled, "To Patricia T___", and goes on to compare her, for her natural affinity for riding, golf, and tennis, to the Goddess Diana: "I imagined muscles moulding to running grace." While there is no evidence here to so indicate, it's possible the copy of Dielma in which the letter and poem are laid was Patricia's, which, if the case, would make this a presentation copy as well. Perhaps an association copy, to boot; Patricia T's surname is that of a noted San Francisco family, and since the letter was written on Hotel St. Francis stationery in that city, she may have been a member of that clan. No direct evidence here to establish that conclusively, however. The letter is dated "All Souls Day, 1932", which would have been November 2nd or November 3rd of that year. l-44n [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        De la psychose paranoïaque dans ses rapports avec la personnalité

      Paris: Librairie E. Le François,, 1932. Octavo (235 × 156 mm). Modern brown quarter morocco by Lobstein-Laurenchet, marbled boards, raised bands, spine gilt-lettered direct, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, printed wrappers bound in. Stain to foot of original front wrapper also very slightly affecting the extreme lower margin of the first few leaves, else an excellent copy. First edition of Lacan's first published work. Lacan's ground-breaking thesis, particularly its central narrative of the story of the woman he named Aimée, immediately attracted the attention of the Surrealists. "To this thesis," Dali wrote in 1933, "we are indebted for giving us, for the first time, a global and homogeneous idea of the [paranoid] phenomenon, beyond any of the abject notions in which psychiatry at present is mired." "The young psychiatrist was not satisfied with effecting a brilliant critical synthesis among several trends of French thought; he also proposed a writing of madness which was as innovative at the time as that of Breton or Bataille. Instead of a traditional case history, we find in the 1932 thesis a novel 150 pages in length, in the style of Flaubert, that is, in a literary language irreducible to the wooden prose of psychiatric discourse. Lacan recounts his heroine's adventures with the pen of an authentic writer, displacing on the character of Aimée the misfortunes of a contemporary Emma Bovary. That in fact is the greatest originality of this innovative book" (Élisabeth Roudinesco, Jacques Lacan & Co: a history of psychoanalysis in France, 1925-1985, University of Chicago Press, 1990, p. 112).

        Original photo album of a crew member of HMS Emerald, with private pictures of Bouvet Island and a 4 page manuscript report about the landing on the island. The expedition to Bouvet was led by Admiral Edward Evans, former second-in-command of captain Scott's antarctic expedition.

      - Original photo album of a crew member of HMS Emerald, with private pictures of Bouvet Island and a 4 page manuscript report about the landing on the island. Oblong 4to blue cloth photo album, bound with string. 32 pages of mounted gelatin silver and platinum prints, taken between 1932 and 1934, last page with some additional photos taken in 1941. This is a personal photo album from sailor Edward C. Newman, covering his overseas service between 1932 and 1941. The photos all have handwritten captions and the subjects include travel and crew, as well as local people and wildlife. A very interesting aspect about this photo album is that Edward C. Newman was aboard the expedition of HMS Milford which visited Bouvet Island in 1934. Bouvet, an Island near Antarctica, is probably the most remote place in the world. It was discovered in 1738 by Jean-Baptiste Lozier Bouvet and not sighted again until 1808. In 1825, a whaler made the first landing on the Island. Only in 1927 the first extended stay took place, by the crew of the Norwegian vessel Norvegia. The increase of whaling in the Southern ocean brought Norvegian and British expeditions to the area. Britain had waived territorial claims on Bouvet Island in favor of Norway, but in 1934 HMS Milford made a dramatic dash to Bouvet to make sure that no hostile power was operating there. Captain of the Milford was Admiral Edward Evans (Former second-in-command of captain Scott's antarctic expedition). He and his crew found nothing, except the sole occupant s of seals, sea elephants and sea birds. The island remains an uninhabited, very hard to reach place even today - only a few successful landings have been executed since its discovery in 1738. The four-page handwritten account of the voyage makes for an interesting read. The outward journey from South-Africa was undertaken in fierce weather conditions ("on one day, she [HMS Milford] was actually pushed back 90 miles"). A curious event recorded is the "undiscovery" of Thompson Island, a phantom island supposedly sighted by sailors between 1825 and 193. The Milford sailed directly over its reported coordinates and took soundings at 150 fathoms to prove it was not there. A interesting footnote is that Newton records how permission had been obtained from the Norwegian consul in cape town to overprint existing Norwegian stamps with "Bouvet Oya" and despatch a mail from the islands (though as Newman notes, since the overprint was not officially acknowledged by the Norwegian authorities, the stamps must be regarded as a private issue". The remaining part of the Album provides photos of time spent in Western Africa, with visits to Gambia, Sierra Leone, Nigeria, Ghana and Equatorial Guinea including the Annabon Islands. These pictures seem to antedate the Bouvet Island mission. Newman clearly considered that mission the most important part of the album and inserted these photos at front. Several of the pictures taken during the African part of the voyage show the celebration of crossing the equator. The album is completed with pictures of South Africa and, at the very end, some photo of the HMS Emerald during the second World War, taken with rough weather. A remarkable set of photos, chronicling a tour along Western-and South Africa, and a unique account of the historical landing on Bouvet Island. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

The complete novel with scenes from the movie on the endpapers. VG+ in woven lime green cloth stamped brightly in black on the front boards and the spine.

A gorgeous copy except for the mottling to the boards. Unfortunately, the boards have been exposed to mold, and there are extensive patches on the front and rear boards of the whitish brown mold which has leeched the lime green color out of the cloth. About the bottom third of the front boards and half of the rear boards have been affected by the microbes. Perhaps this copy would be best rebound in leather, as the interior is virtually fine.

        ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND

      New York: Limited Editions Club, 1932. Hardcover. Superb copy in a Near Fine slipcase. Scarce in this condition. John Tenniel. In the original heavily gilt-decorated full red morocco. With the original illustrations by John Tenniel. Copy #1288 of 1500 with typography and binding by Frederick Warde who has SIGNED the colophon page. Additionally SIGNED for the publisher on a separate page bound in before the title page by Alice Hargreaves, "the original Alice," one of only about 500 copies of the total edition of 1500 copies that were signed by her a few years before her death. Alice refused to sign other editions of this famous book in her lifetime, written by Carroll for her when she was young Alice Liddell, but she was convinced with the help of monetary compensation to sign these copies. She would also sign two years later copies of THROUGH THE LOOKING-GLASS by the same publisher. A rare opportunity to acquire one of the most famous children's books ever published here signed by the subject of the book. Many have praised this book, but perhaps novelist Sir Walter Besant's remark is the most insightful: "It admits us into a state of being which, until it was written, was not only unexplored but undiscovered." Book completely original, the slipcase is new and sympathetic to the original. A nicer copy of this book will not be found.

        BRAVE NEW WORLD

      Chatto & Windus, LONDON, UK - NEAR FINE First Edition, First Printing. CLEAN, CRISP BOOK WITH A NEAR FINE DUST JACKET of BRAVE NEW WORLD by Aldous Huxley, published in 1932 by Chatto & Windus, London (see image of copyright and title pages). The book is in beautiful condition with crisp, bright blue boards with bright unfaded gilt titles to spine. The boards have sharp corners, with one miniscule corner bump, and no edgewear. The binding is tight and square and withOUT the typical spine lean that often comes with this title. The end papers and internal pages are clean, with no owner names, no inscriptions, no bookstore stamps and no bookplates. The internal pages are clean, bright and flat with no stains, no marks, no writing, no handling marks, no bent pages and no foxing. Internally appearing as unread! Rough cut page edges as published. Please see detailed images. The scarce original dust jacket has benefited from very slight restoration by an expert paper conservator to the spine ends and as such presents as a near fine example. The Brave New World jacket is known to be extremely fragile, and usually in pieces, or has alot of sunning (browning) to the spine, or is missing altogether. This jacket has strong vibrant colors with no rips, no chips, no edgewear, no stains, no fading, no rubbing and no foxing. A hint of very slight toning to spine. An absolutely stunning jacket. The jacket is NOT price clipped, and has a stated price of 7s. 6d.net. Please see detailed images. A very handsome example of this classic fragile book. ADDITIONAL IMAGES AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. Please see our Abe store for other Sci-Fi first editions [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Brave New World

      Chatto and Windus, London 1932 - The book is firmly and squarely bound in clean blue cloth, lettered and decorated in gilt to the spine, the corners and spine ends are a little bumped. The text block is slightly age toned, with some minor spots of foxing and a neatly written name and date to the front pastedown. The dust jacket is the original and not price clipped, it has some minor restoration, the "Brave" to the top of the spine, and a few neat repairs to short closed tears, it is a little age toned to the spine and there are some slight marks. A very attractive example of Huxley's dystopian classic, the dust jacket was an exceptionally clean example prior to restoration, but looked almost as if a small animal had bitten off the top of the spine; it has now been returned to its full glory.

        I Santi Evangeli Illustrati

      Ambrosiana Editoriale, Roma 1932 - Un volume in-Folio(38 x 45); magnifica legatura in piena pelle con decorazioni dorate, firmata Bruno da Osimo; taglio superiore dorato e decorato; fregi e titoli oro anche al dorso; pp. 188, (6), arricchite dalle belle tavole a colori fuori testo di Galizzi e dalle superbe xilografie policrome di Bruno da Osimo, che ha realizzato anche i capolettera, le testatine e i finalini decorativi; testo su due colonne, in colore marrone - azzurro. Difetti da uso alla legatura, con abrasioni al dorso e agli angoli, e alcune mancanze che lasciano scoperte le assicelle di legno della struttura; interno in eccellenti condizioni. Magnifica impresa tipografica, molto rara a trovarsi in questa veste originale realizzata per l'Opera Nazionale Mezzogiorno d'Italia (esistono edizioni successive di formato nettamente ridotto e di qualità notevolmente inferiore). Splendida opera, estremamente suggestive le rappresentazioni simboliche dei Quattro Evangelisti realizzate da Bruno da Osimo.
