"The Observer invited Hugh Walpole to chose the best picture-book of 1932. 'I give the prize without hesitation to Rackham's Hans Andersen,' Walpole replied. 'He has risen nobly to his subject. He has acquired a new tenderness and grace. His fantasy is stronger than ever.' Twenty-five years after its publication, the Hans Andersen had become one of the most difficult of Rackham's books to buy second-hand" (Hudson, Arthur Athur Rackham His Life and Work, p. 133-34).Latimore and Haskell, p. 68.

        King of the Golden River, The

      , 1932. 1932. With An Original Pen & Ink Drawing By Rackham[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. RUSKIN, John. The King of the Golden River. London: [1932]. One of 570 copies signed by Arthur Rackham, this being an out of sequence Presentation Copy (so inked by Rackham, who has crossed-out the original copy number) with a contemporary signed and dated (1932) original pen and ink drawing by Arthur Rackham on the limitation page. Octavo (8 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches; 222 x 146 mm.). 47, [1] pp. Four color plates. The drawing depicts The King of the Golden River smiling at Gluck who is holding a fishing net.Original limp vellum. A near fine, partially unopened copy. Housed in the publisher's original slipcase (lightly soiled) with copy number effaced by Rackham.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.

      London: Elkin Mathews & Marrot: 1932. . London: Elkin Mathews & Marrot: 1932. . First UK printing. . Very good+ in bright blue cloth with publisher's stylized EM logo on bottom on spine - very minimal shelfwear, some discoloration to edges of textblock, pages almost white with no foxing and only very slight toning. Dustjacket has a little loss at the upper corner of the front fold and at the folds at the sides of the spine, but is overall in very good condition, bright and attractive, and extremely uncommon. . Third novel by this influential Harlem Renaissance writer - considered the first 'modern' African American woman novelist, editor of 'The Crisis.' This book is known in two English bindings, a bright blue and a light green. While no definite priority has been established, since the color of the blue binding is picked up by the design of the dustjacket (thus making the overall design more satisfying) and since the blue binding bulks slightly thicker than the light green, an argument can be made that the blue would be priority A. Certainly the blue binding is the more attractive version.

      Toronto: McClelland & Stewart, 1932 Woolf, Virginia. A ROOM OF ONE'S OWN. Toronto: McClelland & Stewart, 1932, 8vo., 172pp. Publisher's original blue boards, titles to spine gilt. A near fine fresh copy [neat contemporary name on the ffe.] in the blue printed dustwrapper of the First Canadian Edition, first printing. The most elusive of the First Editions having been printed in the US [possibly from Harcourt Brace supplied sheets] in an unknown but very small edition, [250 - 500 copies, a speculation]. A very nice example for the completist, the DJ has one repaired closed tear but is otherwise very bright & interesting in its yellowish tonal quality. Woolf's major polemic against patriarchy, based loosely on two lectures she delivered, one at Newnham and the other at Girton. Kirkpatrick and Clarke A12dd. Woolf observed in her diary, "I shall be attacked for a feminist". An increasingly uncommon & important Woolf title & 20th century literary highlight. Excellent copy. Noted in Kirkpatrick's latest edition. As far as we know, fewer than three or four copies in dustwrappers have surfaced in the last 30 years. . First Edition. Illus. by Vanessa Bell.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Lersch").

      Bodendorf an der Ahr, 7. VII. 1932.. 1 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.

        Typed Letter, Signed, On Harvard Law School Letterhead, November 5...

Some toning, two horizontal fold lines to letter, which has a full signature. Items housed in handsome recent cloth solander case with calf lettering piece. * Friendly letter to Alice Strong, who was compiling an anthology of quotations.

It appears that Strong never completed (or published) her anthology. This letter was part of the collection of James S. Copley, the newspaper chief and bibliophile..

      New York: Harcourt Brace & Co., (1932). New York: Harcourt Brace & Co., (1932). First Edition. Hardcover. Wear to upper front corner otherwise quite nice. Very Good, lacking as usual the very scarce dustwrapper. Cloth-backed boards. Illustrated with drawings by E. Simms Campbell. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the front endpaper "in fellowship" to Donald Young. Both Young and Brown were friends of anthropologist Melville Jean Herskovits who conducted research into the physical anthropology of the American Negro in the 1920s. Additionally INSCRIBED and SIGNED below that at a later date to lyricist ("Over the Rainbow") Yip Harburg: "one of my eleven fans/with best wishes/Sterling A. Brown/(S.A. Greer)/(Senator Billboard/Rawkins)/1955." Brown's inscription incorporates the name of his famous poetic character Slim Greer, who represented the noble black man who could overcome his tribulations with humor and who relied on his wit to disarm his white persecutors, as well as one of Harburg's famous creations, the bigoted senator from the musical FINIAN'S RAINBOW who is turned black by a magical spell and who learns the lesson of tolerance. Superb presentation copy.

Blätter tadell. Preis in CHF: 1980. Laut dem Autor des Werkververzeichnisses, Herrn Arnold Erni, wird die Auflage kaum über insgesamt 300 Exemplaren hinaus gegangen sein, davon vermutlich 150 signiert.Mappenwerk des künstlerisch auserordentlich vielseitigen und politisch sehr biegsamen Schweiz. Grafikers, Bühnenbildners, Malers, Zeichners u. Illustratoren Otto Baumberger (1889-1961). Nach seiner Ausbildung u. anschliessenden Auseinandersetzung mit dem Expressionismus u. Kubismus war der Künstler als Bühnenbildner tätig. Grosse Wertschätzung erhielt er vor allem als Plakatgestalter. Die vorliegenden Arbeiten dokumentieren die Industrialisierung Zürichs. "Zu Beginn seiner künstlerischen Arbeit ist Baumberger in erster Linie dem Expressionismus verpflichtet. In den grafischen Blättern mit gesellschaftskritischen Themen nähert er sich inhaltlich wie stilistisch George Grosz und Otto Dix an. Zusammen mit Fritz Pauli, Otto Morach, Hermann Huber und Ignaz Epper gehört Baumberger zu den wichtigsten Vertretern des Expressionismus in der Schweiz" (SIKART). [Starke, expressive Darstellungen der Stadt Zürich.]

        Arabia Felix: Across The Empty Quarter of Arabia

      Cape, 1932. Cape, 1932. 1st edition. Hardcover. Introduction by T E Lawrence. Appendix by Sir Arthur Keith. Original bown buckram, gilt lettering, rough-cut pages to the fore-edge and lower edge, as issued. Clean within, no foxing. Over 50 pages of photographs, figures, diagrams and maps, including a fold-out colour map at the end. The scarce dustjacket has had some archival conservation at the extremities and is a little rubbed, but is not price-clipped.

Bertram Thomas was the first European to make the hazardous crossing of the Rub' al Khali, the huge Arabian desert, as recounted in this great work.

        Le pelerinage de la Mecque au point de vue religieux social et sanitaire. Par le Docteur Duguet, Medecin General, Inspecteur general du Conseil sanitaire, maritime et quarantenaire d'Egypte. Avec une preface de Justin Godart.

      Paris, Editions Rieder, 1932.. Large 8vo. XII, 337, (1) pp., l. bl. f. Original printed wrappers. With 8 plates printed on 4.. First edition. - "The true subject of this book is not named in the title, yet two-thirds of the whole are given up to cholera. To introduce his subject the author gives a description of the pilgrimage which is so readable that it is almost ungracious to say that one or two points are open to criticism [...] In the body of the book the author describes the epidemics at Mecca, the hospitals (!), the development of preventive measures outside the Hedjaz, and his hopes for the future. The policies of the Turks, King Husain, and Ibn Sa'fid, the change in defence from long quarantine to inoculation and disinfection, and the growth of the International Sanitary Conference are explained. He records inhuman wickedness and magnificent courage and generosity. A squeamish layman should not read some of the pages just before dinner or bed [...] The conclusion is that all pilgrims should be protected by inoculation against cholera, plague, and smallpox before leaving their homes [...] There are a few misprints, one of which makes the name of Dr. Olschanietzki even less pronounceable than it is by nature. A very useful book" (A. S. Tritton, book review in: Bulletin of the School of Oriental Studies VII, 1 [1933] 224). - Macro, Bibliography of the Arabian Peninsula, 871. OCLC 1931511.
