        Uncle Bill / A Tale of Two Kids and a Cowboy (SIGNED)

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York * London 1932 - Very good with no dust jacket (as usual.) 1932 date to title page matches 1932 date to copyright page. No later dates. Scribner's letter "A" and seal to copyright page -- the first edition. Cloth fraying to top of spine, and the front board corners are peeking through. The rear hinge has been competently repaired. A hard title to find signed. Signature (in blue ink) and date ('32) to 2nd blank page is in James' usual style -- the linking of the initial W to the top of the J matches the signature style shown in the frontispiece drawing -- see scans. Some report the drawing of the galloping horse at the bottom of pg. 181 identifies the "second state of the first edition," and if so this copy is a "second state," since the horse is surely there. Riding, roping, Western lore. This book will not be shipped to California addresses. 241 pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        De la psychose paranoïaque dans ses rapports avec la personnalité

      Le François 1932 - - Le François, Paris 1932, 16x24cm, broché sous chemise et étui. - Véritable édition originale de la thèse de Jacques Lacan dont il n'a pas été tiré de grands papiers. Exemplaire de première émission, sans le sous-titre: "chef de clinique à la Faculté de Médecine de Paris" qui fut ajouté pour le second tirage. Très rare et bel envoi autographe daté du 24 octobre 1932 et signé de Jacques Lacan : « à Cuel, dont la personnalité scientifique me fut d'abord prônée par notre maître Trénel, et dont la rencontre ne m'a pas déçu, en signe de très particulière sympathie. » Dos très légèrement insolé sans gravité. Notre exemplaire est présenté sous une chemise en demi maroquin noir, plats de papier décorés de motifs abstraits, étui bordé, ensemble réalisé par Goy & Vilaine. J.R Cuel, Jeune psychiatre, fut comme Lacan, l'ami et l'élève de Marc Trénel, chef du service de l'asile de Maison Blanche auprès duquel Jacques Lacan s'initie aux troubles du langage. Nous n'avons pas trouvé beacoup d'informations sur cet ami que Lacan appelle par son patronyme sans mentionner son prénom sinon une intervention qu'il fera en 1948 à propos de l'exposé de J.R. Cuel, alors Membre du "Groupe de l'Évolution Psychiatrique", sur la « place nosographique de certaines démences préséniles ». A cette occasion, c'est encore par cette familière dénomination que le célèbre psychanaliste débutera son appréciation du travail de son confrère: "Je m'associe aux compliments faits à Cuel." Le libraire Hervé Valentin à référencé précédemment les exemplaires connus de cette thèse imprimée à très petit nombre et que Lacan fit sans doute retirer de la vente après avoir découvert qu'un de ses patients était le fils de "Aimée" dont le cas est longuement exposé ici. parmi les 27 exemplaires recensés, seulement 9 sont du premier tirage dit "sans sous-titre" et destiné à être offert à ses proches amis et confères : 2 exemplaires sans envois et 9 exemplaires avec une dédicace autographe réalisée entre octobre 1932 et juillet 1933. Ajoutons aujourd'hui cet exemplaire qui s'avère être l'un des trois premiers exemplaires dédicacés par Lacan, juste après celui de ses parents. - à ses parents [eas du 23 octobre 1932, le plus ancien connu] - à [J.R] Cuel [eas du 24 octobre 1932] - à Pierre Migault [eas du 24 octobre 1932] - au Dr. Pierre Verret [eas du 25 octobre 1932] - au Dr. Morgensten [eas du 3 novembre 1932] - à Guillaume de Tarde [17 novembre 1932] - au Dr Vogt [eas du 25 nov. 1932] - au Dr. Martin Sisteron [23 janvier 1933] - au Dr. Jean Picard [23 janvier 1933] - à Marcel Boll [9 juillet 1933]. En fin, un seul exemplaire dédicacé du second tirage, avec la mention du "chef de clinique à la Faculté de Médecine de Paris" : - à Eugène Minkowski [eas septembre 1933] Rarissime exemplaire de la fameuse et thèse de Jacques Lacan enrichi d'un des très précoce envoi autographe signé à sonc confrère. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Genuine first edition of the thesis of Jacques Lacan he was not drawn large and uncommon papiers.Très nice autograph dedication of the author scientist Marcel Boll: ".

Still, it will give you an idea of the kind of work we accomplished. I mean to add a chapter which will have a bearing on the pending discussions about Disarmament. It will dwell on the inevitable time-lag between orders and production. It will be designed to show that if existing armaments are reduced, and the surplus broken up, it will take at least twelve months to equip an army ." sending some chapters which he would very much like him "to re-read them with a view to your seeing what impression the story as a whole is likely to make on a reader. There are some alterations in the Drink Chapter . material additions to the Gun Programme Chapter .", he then deals with specific topics "Financial Crisis", "German and Wilson Peace Notes: . will follow the chapters on the discussions in the Asquith Cabinet in the late autumn of 1916 ." "Mesopotamia: I have a rather harrowing chapter on the conduct of the Mesopotamian Campaign. It will have a bearing on the claim of the soldiers that their failures, were there were any, were largely attributable to the interference of politicians . I hope to send you my chapters on the Strategy and Conduct of the War. These raise the whole issue of the Eastern and Western Fronts .

      1932. First Edition . FISHER, Irving. Booms and Depressions. Some First Principles. New York: Adelphi, (1932). Octavo, original green cloth. $2200.First edition of FisherÂ’s work connecting monetary fluctuations to extreme periods of the business cycle.In this work, Fisher puts forth the theory that booms and depressions may stem from “deranged” money, or currency that is behaving irrationally due to various value-skewing factors such as debt, hoarding, confidence, and consumption. Considered “the father of monetary economics” (Pressman, 91), “Irving Fisher was, in the opinion of many, the leading economic theorist in the United States during the first half of the 20th century. Although his contributions to economic theory and to the development of econometrics ensure him a preeminent position among contemporary economists, he was a versatile man. In his day he was equally well-known as social philosopher, teacher, inventor, businessman, and passionate crusader for many social causes” (ANB). Without scarce dust jacket, rarely found. Small notation to front free endpaper.Cloth with small stain to rear panel. An about-fine copy.

        Photograph signed

      1932. Signed. CHURCHILL, Winston. Photograph signed. No place: E.F. Foley, 1932. Photographic print, measuring 6-1/2 by 9 inches; handsomely matted and framed, entire piece measures 13-1/2 by 16 inches. $8500.Scarce, early photographic portrait of Churchill by E.F. Foley, signed on the mount in pencil by the photographer and additionally signed in pen by Churchill: “Winston S. Churchill 1932,” handsomely matted and framed.This wonderful three-quarter-length, black-and-white photograph depicts a relaxed yet somewhat pensive Churchill sitting with his legs crossed and holding one of his trademark cigars in his right hand. Interestingly, the photographer, E.F. Foley, worked primarily out of New York shooting famous American personalities. Churchill, despite his familial ties in the States, spent most of the early 1930s traipsing around Europe, heavily involved in political and peace causes and researching his biography of Marlborough, making this portrait from that year rather scarce and desirable. Fine condition.

        Arabia Felix: Across the "Empty Quarter" of Arabia. With a foreword by Colonel T.E. Lawrence … Appendix by Sir Arthur Keith

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1932. First edition. Profusely illustrated; folding map in rear. xxix, 397 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Original tan cloth. Fine copy in near fine dust jacket (faint soiling to back panel of dust jacket). First edition. Profusely illustrated; folding map in rear. xxix, 397 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. 'the finest thing in Arabian exploration'. In 1931, Bertram Thomas, British Agent at Muscat, successfully crossed the Empty Quarter, the great desert of south Arabia. On hearing of the feat, T.E. Lawrence wrote, "It remained the only unknown corner of the world, and it is the end of the history of exploration. Thomas did it by camel, at his own expense. … Its difficulty can best be put by my saying that no Arab, so far as we know, has ever crossed it". In February, 1932, Thomas published his account of the crossing, ARABIA FELIX, with a Foreword by T.E. Lawrence. In his foreword, Lawrence wrote, "Thomas let me read the draft, and I then did my best to comment usefully; once remarking that the tale was good enough for his journey - no faint judgment, set against what I think the finest thing in Arabian exploration.".
