        Marlborough: His Life and Times, a finely bound full set of British first editions inscribed and dated by Churchill in Volume I in the month of publication to Churchill's longtime friend and painting mentor, the artist Paul Maze

      London: George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd., 1933. First edition, first printing. Full leather. . This first edition, first printing set is inscribed in Volume I in the month of publication to Churchill's close friend and artistic mentor, French painter and “last of the Impressionists” Paul Maze. The four-line, inked half-title inscription reads: “Paul Maze | from | Winston S. Churchill | Oct. 1933”. A superlative fine binding in full orange morocco (echoing the Publisher's original limited issue of the first edition), features gilt-bordered, raised spine bands, brown morocco title and author labels, gilt front cover frame rules, beveled edge boards, head and foot bands, hand-marbled endpapers, freshly re-gilt top edges, and tissue guard bound in preceding the inscription. The inscribed Volume I contents show modest spotting for the edition, primarily confined to prelims and mildly age-toned fore and bottom edges. Volumes II-IV show only a trivial hint of spotting confined to the mildly age-toned fore and bottom edges. We find no previous ownership marks other than the author's inscription. The set is housed in a brown cloth slipcase. Regarded among the great artists of his generation, Paul Lucien Maze (1887-1979) “learned the rudiments of painting from family friends that included Renoir, Monet, Dufy and Pissarro.” Though born in La Havre, Maze had “a lifelong love affair with all things English.” During the First World War Maze was wounded several times and highly decorated (awarded the DCM, MM and Bar, Legion d'Honneur, and Croix de Guerre). Maze met Churchill on the Western Front in 1916, where Churchill was serving as a Lieutenant Colonel during his political exile following the Dardanelles disaster. Churchill had only recently discovered painting, the passion Maze would encourage and guide as both friend and mentor for the rest of Churchill's life. Churchill's official Biographer called Maze “One of Churchill's closest French friends.” (Gilbert, VI, p.856) The friendship transcended painting, evidenced by shared moments, perspective, and correspondence. In between writing Marlborough, his most substantial published work of his 1930's “wilderness years”, Churchill wrote a Foreword for Maze's First World War memoir (A Frenchman in Khaki, 1934). In 1939, as war approached, Churchill also wrote a Foreword to the catalogue for his friend's first New York exhibition (“He is no toiling seeker… but a vivid and powerful interpreter to us of the forces and harmony of Nature.”) Later that same year, on 20 August, Churchill was painting beside Maze when he “suddenly turned” to his friend and said: “This is the last picture we shall paint in peace for a very long time.” Maze recorded: “What amazed me was his concentration over his painting. No one but he could have understood more what the possibility of war meant, and how ill prepared we were. As he worked, he would now and then make statements as to the relative strengths of the German Army or the French Army… Then his jaw would clench his large cigar, and I felt the determination of his will. ‘Ah' he would say, ‘with it all, we shall have him.'” Maze recorded that Churchill was depressed as he left: “I had written a letter to him ‘only to read when he was over the Channel': ‘Don't worry Winston you know that you will be Prime Minister and lead us to victory…'” (Gilbert, V, p.1103) On 1 September Nazi Germany invaded Poland returning Churchill to the Admiralty and to war. In May 1940 Churchill became Prime Minister. The next month, Maze “managed to escape through Bordeaux… bringing with him a convoy of orphans.” Maze served in the Hampshire Home Guard before serving as an RAF staff officer. (Gilbert, VI, p.857) Post-war, Maze's friendship with Churchill continued, as did the twining of their respective paths. Churchill was Queen Elizabeth II's first Prime Minister, Maze the Official Painter of her Coronation. Maze was a frequent Chartwell guest, the two painting together into Churchill's final years.

        Lettre autographe signée (1933) à Lucien Descaves / Voyage au Bout de la Nuit

      - Lettre autographe signée « Destouches », Paris, 7 octobre 1933, à Lucien Descaves, 2 pages et demie in-8, papier tâché, en-tête de la « ville de Clichy, Services Municipaux d’Hygiène et d’Assistance Sociale ». « Il illustre d’ailleurs le Voyage » « Cher Maître, Mon excellent ami Henri Mahé me dit avoir eu l’honneur de vous être présenté récemment chez Dufrêne et je me permets de vous recommander cet excellent artiste « bien français » à votre bienveillance. Il illustre d’ailleurs le Voyage en ce moment et à ce titre j’espère que son travail vous intéressera. Il me ferait grand plaisir de vous voir quand vous le voudrez. Peut-être quand vous passez par Paris pourrais-je vous rencontrer ici ou là ? Bien sincèrement et respectueusement à vous. Votre très reconnaissant Destouches ». Cette lettre est la première des nombreuses lettres que Céline envoie à des destinataires afin de soutenir la candidature de son jeune ami Henri Mahé au prix Blumenthal de décoration (qu’il obtiendra en juin 1934). Mahé avait collaboré avec Céline pour une édition illustrée du Voyage au bout de la Nuit. Denoël n’avait jamais donné suite à ce projet.

        Moi Parizh

      1933. |~|DOWN AND OUT IN PARIS EL LISSITZKY. Moi Parizh. By Ilya Ehrenburg. 236, [2] pp. Illustrated with roughly 100 black and white plates. Oblong 4to., 160 x 185 mm, bound in publisher's illustrated boards with original illustrated dust-jacket, preserved in a recent cloth folding box. Moscow: Izogiz, 1933. |~||~||~||~| An unusually fine copy of this legendary photobook on Paris between the wars. The book was designed by El Lissitzky who also provided preliminary photographs, and photomontages. The writer, journalist and revolutionary Ilya Ehrenburg lived for a number of years in Paris and used one of the newly invented portable 35mm cameras to document life on the streets. His photographs differ from the usual romanticised images of Paris. Ehrenburg captured the lives of everyday, struggling people in Paris, young and old, people at work and rest, tradesmen, courting couples, down and outs, and drunks. Due to the rarity of this book, Ehrenburg's social photography was virtually unknown, but now thanks to a recent facsimile, it is familiar to a wider audience. With the legendarily rare dust-jacket, of which only two copies are known. Slightest wear to boards and minor restoration the the jacket, but a very desirable copy.

        [Photographs]: Bennett Lake [and] Yukon River: Yukon Territory, circa 1933-1942

      (Yukon Territory). (circa 1933-1942). Three black and white photographs, each measuring approximately 14" x 9". A set of landscape photographs taken in the Yukon Territory during the late 1930s by a member of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), a New Deal public work relief program from 1933 to 1942. They include a portrait of a man canoeing on a mist enshrouded Bennett Lake, a herd of caribou swimming across the Yukon River, and mountain sheep grazing high up on a rocky heath near the Watson River. The first photograph has a note on the verso indicating that it was taken by "guide Johnie John"; the other two only state that they were "taken by C.C.C." All three evoke the wild, open grandeur of this remote area along the Alaskan border. .

      London: Sir Isaac Pitman and Sons. 1933 - First Edition. Octavo, pp. xiii, 82, 24 of adverts. In publisher's blue cloth with gilt titles to spine and upper board. Numerous illustrations; both photographic and line drawings. With a foreword by Juan de la Cierva, the Spanish engineer who built autogiros in the UK in conjunction with Avro. After service with the Royal Flying Corps, and later with the Royal Air Force, Brie took employment with the Cierva Autogiro Company as a test pilot and demonstrator, showing the capabilities of the the Autogiro to the public and trade figures. In 1933 he was convicted of "low and dangerous flying" in an autogiro over the Kingston Bypass road, and in 1935 he became the first pilot to land and take off in a rotorcraft from a ship at sea. Some dustiness to the top edge, light spotting to the edges. Cloth shows some slight rubbing to extremities with the gilt to the spine slightly rubbed and dulled, small white mark to bottom of spine. Some bumping to the corner and to the head cap. A very good copy of a devilishly scarce title. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
