        The Autogiro and How to Fly It

      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.

        Archive relating to Marlborough

      1933 - CHURCHILL, Winston. Archive of material relating to Marlborough: His Life and Times. London and other locations, 1933-38. Twenty-nine typed signed letters on 34 sheets, 2 of which measure 5 by 8 inches and the remaining of which measure 8 by 10 inches. WITH: Galley proof, measuring 10 by 14 inches. WITH: Map leaves, notes, typed carbon contents leaf, secretarially signed letters, and page-proof corrections, most measuring 8 by 10 inches. WITH: 10 telegrams from Churchill of varying dimensions. Housed together in a black binder and a custom clamshell box. $98,500.An exceptional rarity: large archive of material relating to the editing and publishing of Churchill's Marlborough: His Life and Times, comprising 29 typed letters signed from Churchill, nearly all to his notorious proofreader, C.C. Wood, together with a galley proof page with corrections in Churchill's hand and other materials. John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough, started his court service as a page during the reign of Charles II and ended it as Master-General of the Ordnance of the English army under George I. He served under five sovereigns, distinguished himself on the battlefield and as a diplomat, and was once even imprisoned in the Tower of London for treason. Handsome and charming"" Lord Chesterfield described him as "irresistible to either man or woman"" Marlborough's military strategy led the Duke of Wellington to say that he could "conceive nothing greater than Marlborough at the head of an English army." Future prime minister Winston Churchill, who was named after Marlborough's father and was the nephew of the Eighth Duke of Marlborough, wrote this history of his famous ancestor to refute earlier criticisms of Marlborough by the historian Thomas Babington Macaulay. "Though it was a commissioned work, Churchill would not have invested nearly a million words and ten years had it not had special significance for him. For he wrote about a man who was not only his ancestor, an invincible general, the first of what became the Spencer-Churchill dukes of Marlborough, and a maker of modern Britain, but also a supreme example of heroism in the two vocations which mainly interested Churchill and in which ultimate triumph seemed to have eluded him"" politics and war making" (Wiedhorn, 110). "It may be his greatest book. To understand the Churchill of the Second World War, the majestic blending of his commanding English with historical precedent, one has to read Marlborough. Only in its pages can one glean an understanding of the root of the speeches which inspired Britain to stand when she had little to stand with" (Langworth, 164). "The scholarship seems formidable, as in no other of his works. Picking his way through conflicting testimony and evaluations, Churchill, while leaning on William Coxe's 1818 biography of the duke, carefully weighs each writer's reliability. Yet the tone is not as detached as might be expected from an academic historian". Marlborough, with his broad European view and his apparent sense of Britain's imperial destiny, is the fulcrum, and all the other characters, parties, and issues take their places accordingly". the literati hostile to Marlborough"" Pope, Swift, Thackeray, Macaulay"" are harshly expelled from the witness stand" (Wiedhorn, 113-114). This archive of correspondence highlights both Churchill's meticulousness as a writer and editor and his relationship with his editor Charles Wood. Although Charles Wood first worked with Churchill on his book Marlborough in the 1930's, he was hired full-time in 1948 to proofread Churchill's massive multi-volume work-in-progress, The Second World War, joining Churchill's literary staff of secretaries (who typed on silent typewriters as Churchill dictated), research assistants, and advisors. Wood became "an essential member of the team and no error escaped his eye" (Gilbert VIII: 344). "The main addition to Churchill's literary entourage in 1948 was Charles Wood"" a retired proofreader w [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

      1933 - RACKHAM, Arthur. Autograph letter signed. Surrey, England, July 28, 1933. Single sheet, measuring 4-1/2 by 7 inches folded; pp. 4 (writing on first and last pages). With archive of related material. $2200.Original lengthy autograph letter from Arthur Rackham, entirely written and signed by him, to a Mrs. Lloyd [Berrall] regarding the theft of his illustrations by American artist Edward Trumbull for a mural in New York's Metropolitan Life Building, with original hand-addressed signed envelope.This autograph letter by Arthur Rackham was written in response to a letter from a Julia Smith Berrall (a.k.a. Mrs. James Lloyd Berrall) of Montclair, New Jersey. Berrall had written to Rackham to inform him that the new murals in New York City's Metropolitan Life Building by muralist Edward Trumbull were "exact copies of the figures in [his] illustrations of Rip Van Winkle and the Legend of Sleeph [sic] Hollow." She further inquired whether Rackham had given permission to Trumbull to use the images. Less than two weeks later""incredibly quickly for transatlantic mail""Rackham penned an outraged response. The letter, written from Rackham's home in "Stilegate, Limpsfield, Surrey, England" and dated "28.7.33," reads: "Dear Mrs. Lloyd, Many thanks for your letter. You are quite right in assuming that. I know nothing about Mr. Trumbull's theft of my designs""for it is nothing less. I will take steps to find out whether there is anything to be done about it. That whether Mr. Trumbull is on the safe side of the law or not (& one fears he may have taken steps to find out, before embarking) it is a strange mentality that allows one artist to lift the work of another without even the courtesy of an acknowledgement. I am indeed surprised that a man in such a position as Mr. Trumbull appears to be should so demean himself. One would think that any artist would feel it to be an outrage, which it certainly is. Yrs sincerely, Arthur Rackham. PS. The question of International Copyright is one that to my sorrow the United States will not agree with the rest of us about." Included with the letter to Mrs. Berrall are a copy of an article concerning the murals in the May 1933 issue of Pencil Points that showed pictures of the murals, but made no reference to Rackham; a copy of Berrall's letter to Rackham; a handwritten letter on Montclair Art Museum stationary which appears to be a draft of Berrall's letter to Publisher's Weekly inquiring about the plagiarism issue and inquiring as to whether Pencil Points was aware of Rackham's ownership of the mural images; a letter to Berrall from Publisher's Weekly confirming that Metropolitan Life was aware of the plagiarism and was attempting to come to a settlement with Rackham; a draft of an article by Jesse Mann of The Chatham Bookseller who acquired the Berrall/Rackham material and attempted to find out the ultimate disposition of Rackham's claim against Metropolitan Life; a copy of a letter from The Book Collector to Mann asking for additional information on the Met Life building; and Mann's finished article, published in The Book Collector in 1996.Autograph signed letter and envelope fine.

Inscribed on the half title, "Hommage de l'auteur a Madame C. Capaldi, sa dénoncé collaboratrice, Paris le 20 Mai 1937, F. Libron," and accompanied by 15 separate plates from the "Album" laid in.Written some years after the heyday of corsetry by Fernand Libron, president of the Chambre Syndicale des Fabricants de Corsets, and Henri Clouzot, conservateur of the Musee Galliera (better known today as the Musee la Mode et du Costume), this monumental costume book pays special tribute to Ernest Leoty's very scarce Le Corset a Traverse les Ages (1893), which includes detailed cutting paterns and technical information for the tailor who specializes in making corsets. "A corset is somewhat similar to an umbrella in its construction. When the umbrella is raised, the fabric tautens. The ribs are reinforced with metal tips, to which the fabric of the umbrella is sewn. These tips hold the fabric in a tautened condition while the umbrella is in use. It is the same with a corset" (O.Y. Dalziel). Text in French. Accompanied by 15 loose engravings, listed in the index of illustrations under the heading "Album." Hiler, 544. Book and plates fine, spine panel of original glassine perished, slipcase only slightly rubbed. A fine copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        The Debt-Deflation Theory of Great Depressions.

      [Menasha, Wisconsin], The Econometric Society, 1933. Royal8vo. In a contemporary black half calf binding with gilt lettering to spine. In "Econometrica", Vol. 1, 1933. Entire volume offered. Light wear to extremities and small stamp to title-page. A fine copy. Pp. 339-357. [Entire volume: (4), 448 pp.]. First edition of Fisher's seminal work in which he introduced the concept of 'Debt deflation': a theory of economic cycles that holds that recessions and depressions are due to the overall level of debt shrinking (deflating): the credit cycle is the cause of the economic cycle.The theory was developed by Irving Fisher following the Wall Street Crash of 1929 and the ensuing Great Depression. The debt deflation theory was familiar to John Maynard Keynes prior to Fisher's discussion of it, but he found it lacking in comparison to what would become his theory of liquidity preference. The theory, however, has enjoyed a resurgence of interest since the 1980s, both in mainstream economics and in the heterodox school of post-Keynesian economics, and has subsequently been developed by such post-Keynesian economists as Hyman Minsky and Steve Keen and by the mainstream economist Ben Bernanke. "During the Great Depression, observing the catastrophes of the world around him, which he shared personally, Fisher came to quite a different theory of the business cycle from the simple monetarist version he had espoused earlier. This was his 'Debt-deflation theory of depression', summarized in the first volume of Econometrica, the organ of the international society he helped to found. The essential features are that debt-financed Schumpeterian innovation fuel a boom, followed by a recession between excessive real debt burdens and deflation. Note the contrast to the Pigou real balance effect, according to which prices declines are the benign mechanism that restores full-employment equilibrium. The realism is all on Fisher's side. This theory of Fisher's has room for the monetary and credit cycles of which he earlier complained, and for the perversely pro-cyclical real interest rate movements mentioned above."
