        Day Gone By; The Tragedy of a Fool + Postcard + Photograph

      Published by Stanley Paul & Co. Ltd., Paternoster House, Paternoster Row, London First Edition 1933. London 1933. First edition hard back binding in publisher's original black cloth covers, gilt title and author lettering to the spine and the front cover. 8vo 8'' x 5½''. Contains 284 [32 page catalogue dated 1933] printed pages of text. Eric Barker was a prolific script writer and from the age of twenty he was producing three act plays, serious dramas, comedies, poetry and a lyricist for the music of Rex Burrows. He became one of the most famous faces in British comedy and got his start in show business during the Second World War, when he was part of the armed forces radio show 'Merry Go Round'. After the war the show continued and was renamed 'The Waterlogged Spa', with Eric and his wife, Pearl Hackney. The show's success led to Eric starring in other radio shows, where he achieved celebrity status due to his versatility in mimicking voices. By the mid-1950's he had made the move to the big screen, and found his niche in playing variations on the busybody sticking his nose into everyone's business, or, in the case of the 'Carry On' films, the gang's boss or some other authority figure who was usually on the receiving end of their shenanigans, most memorably in 'Carry on Constable' [1960]. Foxing to the page edges, bumps to the spine ends and corners. Near Very Good condition book in superb Fine condition dust wrapper, priced 7/6 to the spine. Dust wrapper without any tears, marks or chips whatsoever, flawless. Included with the book is a promotional post card about the book from Stanley Paul with a photograph of Eric to one side, also included is the original monochrome post card from this post card. We currently hold in stock many other items of interest by Eric Barker. Member of the P.B.F.A.

        To A God Unknown

      Robert O. Ballou, New York 1933 - Signed and extensively inscribed by the author on an accompanying postcard. 1st edition, 1st printing book, in a 1st issue dustjacket with $2.00 price intact on lower front flap. Only 598 copies were printed by Ballou in 1933 and the book didn't have another printing till it was reprinted in1935 by Covici Friede and Heinemann in the U.K. Fine, tight and unread book with no previous owner markings, no soiling, clean page edges and the black upper page edges are very evenly dark and unspotted. There's just a tiny bit of softening to the binding cloth at spine ends, a tiny rectangular shadow to the cloth at the spine front-side lower edge and just a hint of bumping to upper binding corners to keep it from being As New. It is bound in light green cloth with still bright gilt lettering on the spine. The dustjacket is also Fine with one tiny edge nick lower front-side spine end professionally repaired internally, slight toning to the spine lettering but no fading or toning of other spine colors, and a tiny area of surface wrinkling lower front panel that you can only see when held to the light at an angle. Truly beautiful with no tears, chips or fading. The book comes with a postcard written by Steinbeck in 1952, very clear writing/signature and quite a lengthy inscription to a young woman who was collecting author signatures and involved in 4H activities. She had written Steinbeck about trying to win a trophy and he quotes her his favorite motto in both Spanish and English of 'If you don't want to fly beware of wings' and talks to her of 'food became more important than fame' and that he'd tried once to sell his trophy. The postcard was sent from Steinbeck's New York City 72nd St. address and has 'Steinbeck' as part of the printed sender's address. It is in Near Fine condition - a few tiny age-toned areas, one corner tip that had been turned down at some point (no material loss), a tiny pin prick upper middle edge, and a tiny crimp (no material loss) to the lower edge. The postcard is safeguarded now in an archival heavy-duty (16 gauge, so stiff enough not to need a backing board) removable clear holder that lets you see both sides of the card while in the holder. Also included is a custom clamshell case, bronze spine label, with a patterned-design outside cloth covering complementing the book's dustjacket and a fully lined ivory-colored soft flannel interior. The card in its holder is housed in an ivory-colored soft flannel flapped-closure pocket built onto the inside of the upper lid of the case, with the ivory flannel just a bit age-darkened. The book's dustjacket is in a removable, clear mylar dustjacket protecter. Truly rare examples of both Steinbeck's writing and of Steinbeck's 3rd book which is his most scarce book to find in collector condition. ; 7-5/8" x 5"; 325 pages; Signed by Author [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Warum Krieg? [Why War?]

      Internationales Institut Fur Geistige Zusammenarbeit Volkerbund, Paris 1933 - (FREUD-EINSTEIN) Warum Krieg? [Why War?] Albert Einstein und Sigmund Freud. Paris: Internationales Institut Fur Geistige Zusammenarbeit Volkerbund, 1933. 62pp. original printed wrappers. Slight tanning toward page edges; wrappers darkened at spine and edges, with light wear to extremities. Very Good Condition.FIRST EDITION limited to 2000 printed copies.In 1932, Albert Einstein, invited by the League of Nations to address a letter on any subject to any individual, chose to correspond with Sigmund Freud on the possibilities of avoiding war. Einstein maintained the importance of establishing an independent judiciary body to mediate conflicts. Freud agreed with this idea but also insisted " that there is no likelihood of our being able to suppress humanity’s aggressive tendencies," and that war is the ultimate expression of man’s distaste for the restraints of civilization.By the time of publication, Hitler had risen to power and the world moved closer each day toward a global conflict. Einstein, the committed pacifist, had resigned from the League of Nations over its inability to confront Nazi militarism. In October of 1933 he began his tenure at the Institute of Advanced Study at Princeton, New Jersey.Why War? was translated into multiple languages but this is the true First Edition.
