        Goblin Market

      London: George G. Harrap & Co., 1933. - The Copy of Poet Percy MacKayeWith an Original Drawing by Rackham[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. ROSSETTI, Christina. Goblin Market. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. London: George G. Harrap & Co., Ltd. [1933]. First trade edition, with a fine, three-quarter page original pen & ink drawing by Rackham inscribed to Mr. & Mrs. Percy MacKaye and dated Christmas 1937. The drawing depicts Mr. Rackham himself as an anthropomorphic tree. Octavo (8 3/4 x 5 1/2 in; 222 x 136 mm). 42, [4] pp. Four color plates. Original stiff-card wrappers in color. Original dust jacket with just a tiny amount of insect damage at foot of spine and flap-folds. A near fine copy.American dramatist and poet Percy MacKaye (1875-1956), whose poetry collection, The Far Familiar (1938) was graced with a frontispiece by Arthur Rackham, was the first champion of civic theater and is considered to be the first poet of the Atomic Era because of his sonnet "The Atomic Law," which was published in the Christmas 1945 issue of The Churchman.Goblin Market (composed in April 1859 and published in 1862) is a narrative poem by Christina Rossetti. In a letter to her publisher, Rossetti claimed that the poem, which is interpreted frequently as having features of remarkably sexual imagery, was not meant for children. However, in public Rossetti often stated that the poem was intended for children, and went on to write many children's poems. When the poem appeared in her first volume of poetry, Goblin Market and Other Poems, it was illustrated by her brother, the Pre-Raphaelite artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Goblin Market is about two close young sisters, Laura and Lizzie, who hear the sounds of the goblin fruit market from their house where they reside by themselves. At first they try to ignore the enticing calls of the goblin men but eventually Laura decides to go out and see what's happening. Lizzie warns her not to, but Laura is too curious. The goblin men offer her their fruit, and Laura thinks it looks tasty. She doesn't have any money, but the goblins offer to take a piece of her golden hair instead. So Laura gives up some of her hair, gorges herself on goblin fruit, and heads on home to her sister.But after eating all that goblin fruit, Laura starts to waste away. Lizzie gets worried and decides to go down to the market to see what's what. The goblin men try to tempt her the way they tempted Laura, but Lizzie stands firm. The goblin men turn violent and try to stuff fruit in Lizzie's mouth, but she squeezes her mouth shut, so they just end up getting juice all over her. Lizzie runs back to their house all covered in goblin fruit juice. Laura kisses the juice off her sister's cheeks and is miraculously, but painfully, healed.Years later, Laura and Lizzie are both wives and mothers, and they describe their experience in the goblin market to their own children as a cautionary tale about the importance of sisterly love.Riall, p. 179. Latimore and Haskell, p. 69.

        Marlborough: His Life and Times, full set of six U.S. first editions

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1933. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1933. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Winston Churchill's monumental biography of his great ancestor, John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough took years of research. The final volume was published on the eve of the Second World War. Richard Langworth says "To understand the Churchill of the Second World War, the majestic blending of his commanding English with historical precedent, one has to read Marlborough." The British first edition was issued in four volumes. The U.S. publisher chose to split the first two volumes into two books each, resulting in a six volume set that is otherwise identical in content to the British. Here is a superlative, truly fine set of the first U.S. edition. All six are first edition, first printings, with the Scribner's "A" on the copyright page. The green cloth bindings - so prone to toning and wear - are here nearly perfect. The bindings are uniformly clean, tight, and square with bright spine gilt, sharp corners, and virtually no wear. Even volume V - which was bound in slightly different cloth that proved highly susceptible to spine toning - is remarkably bright. The contents are likewise superlative - crisp, clean, bright, and tight. No spotting. No inscriptions. No age toning. Even the top edges are uniformly bright and clean. The books appear unread. This is the cleanest unjacketed set we have offered and is superior in condition to many jacketed sets we have seen. All six books are protected in removable, clear mylar covers.

        Thoughts and Adventures

      London: Thornton Butterworth, Ltd., 1933. Hardcover. Very good/Very good. A collection of 23 engaging essays by Churchill on an incredibly wide variety of subjects published in 1932. From the original front flap blurb: "Whether he is dealing with personal reminiscences, or telling us his views on any subject under the sun, Mr. Churchill stamps the page with his own vivid personality." Thornton Butterworth published the first edition in 1932. Less than a year later, Thornton Butterworth issued the "Keystone Library" edition from first edition plates. There were ultimately several different Keystone Library printings and multiple binding states. Here is a fine copy of the first Keystone Library issue, first printing, first binding state in an excellent original dust jacket. The scarce and striking dust jacket is complete with no losses. Light wear at the extremities and hinges, toning of the spine, and three small moisture stains are the only flaws to the dust jacket. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. The dark green cloth binding remains bright, tight, and square with sharp corners and bright spine gilt. First binding state is confirmed by the dark green dotted-line grain cloth and blind-stamped title on the front cover (see Cohen, p.390). The contents are bright and crisp. No inscriptions. The book appears unread. Slight transfer toning on the endpapers corresponding with the dust jacket flaps confirms that this book has spent its life jacketed. Spotting is confined to the half title page, the title page, and the text block edges. There is a tiny bookseller sticker affixed to the bottom left corner of the rear pastedown.

Keystone Publishing Co., February, 1933. Scattered toning on signature page. Moderate foxing on covers. Very Good condition.

Angus Morgan was a heavyweight boxer who fought six fights in California in 1934. James J. Jeffries (1875-1953) won the Worldís Heavyweight Championship in Coney Island in 1899 by knocking out Bob Fitzsimmons in the 11th round. He retired undefeated in 1905. Belle Martell (1894-1972) was boxingís first woman referee. In 1931, Belle and her husband, boxing promoter Art Martell, took over former heavyweight boxing champion James J. Jeffries' red dairy barn in Burbank, which Jeffries had converted to a boxing gym. On April 30, 1940, she passed the California state exam, becoming the first woman to be licensed to referee amateur boxing matches throughout the state. Martell made her debut as a referee on May 9, 1940. Wearing a shirtdress below her knees and a silk scarf around her neck, she refereed eight bouts in Pasadena, where a crowd of 700 watched Johnny Mongz knock out Jimmy Archuleta. On May 24,1940, all five state boxing commissioners drew up and adopted Rule 256, which read: "No license will be granted to members of the female sex to referee, second or manage in the ring when other performers are of the opposite sex.î

Die Porträtpostkarte zeigt ein um 1950 entstandenes Ölgemälde von Albert Gartmann (1876-1955).

        The Child Manuela

      New York: Farrar & Rinehart,, 1933. New York: Farrar & Rinehart,, 1933. The Novel of "Maedchen in Uniform". Translated from the German by Agnes Neill Scott. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine and upper board in black, top edge dyed red. With the dust jacket. Cloth just a little rubbed and faded at extremities, spine faded. An excellent copy in the lightly rubbed jacket with some light marks and spots and toned spine panel. First English language edition, first printing. The Child Manuela, based on its author's experiences at the strict boarding school Kaiserin-Augusta-Stift in Potsdam, was originally published in German in 1934. Dealing frankly with the subject of homosexuality among teenage girls, it was also made into a hit play and an important film, the first to depict lesbianism positively (though the story was originally conceived as a novel, the play and film appeared in 1930 and 31, before the novel was published). A very nice copy of this important book.

        L'église

      Denoël et Steele, Paris 1933 - 260 pages, 19 X 12 cm Edition originale, un des 40 ex. sur vélin pur fil (25+15 hors commerce N° 21) sous couverture remplié à triple rabat, couverture illustrée du logo de la collection "Loin des foules", impression bicolore, en frontispice une photographie du fameux masque mortuaire de L?Inconnue de la Seine. Le tirage total des grands papier est le suivant : 10 Japon (5+5 HC) 20 Hollande (10+ 10HC) 40 Vélin pour fil et le tirage courant sur alfa (1800+250 HC), que le nombre d?exemplaires de luxe soit si faible est étonnant sachant que Denoël avait l?habitude de d?en fabriquer beaucoup (1012 ! grands papiers, un record, pour "Mort à crédit", ou encore 573 pour "Bagatelles pour un massacre", "612 pour l?École des cadavres"). Si le nombre des exemplaires de luxe est aussi faible c?est que le livre est publié dans la Collection "Loin des foules" qui répondait à un cahier des charges bien précis, par exemple le frontispice aurait dû être un portrait photographique de l?auteur, ce que Céline refusa. Le tirage de luxe était défini à l?avance. Il s?agit donc, toutes éditions confondues, des grands papiers les plus rares de Céline. Notre exemplaire présente une petite fente de 1cm en tête du dos et le pied du second plat de couverture est très légèrement plissé (voir scans). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Eigenh. Brief und eh. Briefkarte mit U.

      Paris, 19. X. 1933 bzw. o. O. u. D.. 3½ SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt (Brief) sowie 2 SS. (Briefkarte). 8vo und qu.-12mo. Mit eh. adr. Kuvert.. An den Schriftsteller und Publizisten Joseph Chapiro (1893-1962): "Lassen Sie mich Ihnen vor allem danken für Ihre freundlichen Glückwünsche, die mit aller Freude eine Fülle Berliner und Pariser Erlebnisse in mir aufrührten. Sie sind in dem Hauptbuch meiner Erinnerungen eingetragen und ergeben ein Plus zu Ihren Gunsten in der Bilanz, die man in solchen Einschnitten zieht. Ich bin bei diesem Anlass mit einer so überwältigenden Zahl von Briefen und Telegrammen bedacht und als saumseliger Briefschreiber so sehr an meiner schwächsten Stelle getroffen worden, dass ich nicht weiss, woher ich Kraft und Zeit nehmen soll, diese Liebestat durch Erwiderung zu erleichtern. Zunächst bin ich vor meinem Geburtstag und den geplanten Festlichkeiten einfach ausgerissen. Zum Feiern (in jedem Sinne) gebricht es mir seit jeher an Neigung und Eignung. Aber abgesehen von meinem persönlichen Fall ist auch im Allgemeinen die gänzlich unverschuldete Tatsache, geboren worden zu sein, nach der man heute ebenso streng fahndet wie man sie ahndet, für unsereinen eher ein Grund zum Flüchten als zum Feiern. Je später jedoch der Abend ist, umso weniger kann man dem Schatten entfliehen, den diese Zeit wirft. Sie hat aus der Saat, die ich ein Leben lang mit vollen Händen verstreute, nur Gläubiger wachsen lassen. So musste ich denn (um auf den Vorwurf, den Sie in Ihrem Briefe erheben, zu erwidern) wirklich froh sein, als Dr. Leonidoff in diesem Sommer nach Salzburg kam und mir den Antrag machte, in der von ihm unternommenen Aufführung der Fledermaus im Theatre Pigalle die Inszenierung zu übernehmen. Ich habe es sogar freudig begrüßt, dass er das notwendige Kapital dafür aufbrachte, die sehr komplizierten Rechte ordnungsgemäss erworben hatte und eine ansehnliche Besetzung mit französischen Kräften nachweisen konnte. Anders hätte sich mein langgehegter Wunsch, mich in einer repräsentativen Vorstellung in Paris zu tätigen, wohl kaum mehr verwirklicht, da unsere vieljährigen Bemühungen in dieser Richtung durchaus ergebnislos geblieben sind. Der Umsturz aller bisherigen Lebens- und Arbeits-Bedingungen gibt zudem diesem Versuch auch eine ausserordentliche praktische Bedeutung. Es ist hier die Möglichkeit zu einem neuen Anfang gegeben, der wenn auch vielleicht nicht in Paris, so doch wahrscheinlich in England und Amerika eine fruchtbare Fortsetzung finden kann [...]" (auf Briefpapier des Pariser Hotels "Prince de Galles" ("Prince of Wales Hotel") mit gedr. Briefkopf). - An denselben, auf Briefkarte mit gedr. Namenszug: "[...] hier ist der Brief an den Marquis. Bitte, befördern Sie ihn an seine (mir unbekannte) Adresse und fügen Sie, wie wir besprochen haben, eine Übersetzung bei, ohne die mir angemessene Temperatur allzusehr zu erhöhen. Ich halte das, was man in irgendeinem Fieber sagt, nicht für zuverlässig und ich verstehe auch nicht, warum man die Temperatur eines Anderen gleich in gewissen Körperteilen feststellen will. Ich habe das, was ich sagte und hier schrieb, wenigstens wirklich und herzlich gemeint. Freilich fürchte ich, Sie werden nicht sehr zufrieden sein, insbes. mit meiner Skepsis bezüglich der Gastspiele [...] Paris war anstrengend aber im Ganzen, von einem ruhigen Ort aus gesehen, wunderschön. Ich danke Ihnen, gleichviel, ob irgendwelche greifbare Resultate daraus erwachsen werden [...]". - Joseph Chapiro war Mitarbeiter mehrerer deutscher, französischer und amerikanischer Zeitungen und bemühte sich gemeinsam mit dem französischen Regisseur Firmin Gemier um die Begründung eines "Welttheaters"; nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg trat er aktiv für die Wiederbelebung des unterbrochenen deutsch-französischen Kulturaustausches ein. Zudem war Chapiro als Übersetzer (u. a. der Werke Maxim Gorkis) tätig und schrieb Essays, Romane und die Komödie "Jules, Juliette und Julien" (1930). Gleichsam als "Eckermann" Gerhart Hauptmanns führte er auch mit dem Nobelpreisträger regelmäßig und konzentriert seit Anfang der 20er Jahre Gespräche, die er aufzeichnete, von Hauptmann autorisieren ließ und ab 1924 in Tageszeitungen veröffentlichte; für seine Emigration in die USA stellte ihm Hauptmann 5000 Reichsmark zur Verfügung.

        Thoughts and Adventures

      London: Thornton Butterworth, Ltd., 1933. London: Thornton Butterworth, Ltd., 1933. Hardcover. Very good/Very good. A collection of 23 engaging essays by Churchill on an incredibly wide variety of subjects published in 1932. From the original front flap blurb: "Whether he is dealing with personal reminiscences, or telling us his views on any subject under the sun, Mr. Churchill stamps the page with his own vivid personality." Thornton Butterworth published the first edition in 1932. Less than a year later, Thornton Butterworth issued the "Keystone Library" edition from first edition plates. There were ultimately several different Keystone Library printings and multiple binding states. Here is a fine copy of the first Keystone Library issue, first printing, first binding state in an excellent original dust jacket. The scarce and striking dust jacket is complete with no losses. Light wear at the extremities and hinges, toning of the spine, and three small moisture stains are the only flaws to the dust jacket. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. The dark green cloth binding remains bright, tight, and square with sharp corners and bright spine gilt. First binding state is confirmed by the dark green dotted-line grain cloth and blind-stamped title on the front cover (see Cohen, p.390). The contents are bright and crisp. No inscriptions. The book appears unread. Slight transfer toning on the endpapers corresponding with the dust jacket flaps confirms that this book has spent its life jacketed. Spotting is confined to the half title page, the title page, and the text block edges. There is a tiny bookseller sticker affixed to the bottom left corner of the rear pastedown. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A95.3.a, Woods/ICS A39(ab.1), Langworth p.159

        "Selbstporträt" originales Aquarell auf Ingres-Bütten ca. 62x47,5cm; rechts unten signiert und datiert "19(79)"

      . Seine künstlerische Ausbildung erhält Alfred Kohler von 1933 bis 1935 bei Wertner und Gradl an der Kunstschule in Nürnberg. Danach studiert er bis 1937 bei Karl Caspar in München. Ab 1938 ist Kohler in der Münchner Galerie Franke neben anderen Größen seiner Zeit wie Beckmann, Corinth, Heckl (mit dem Kohler befreundet war), Klee, Kokoschka und Nolde ständig in festen Ausstellungen vertreten. Der international bekannte Galerist Günter Franke zog Kohlers Arbeiten sogar denen von Emil Nolde vor. Seine Bilder sind in den Sammlungen der Neuen Pinakothek und der Städtischen Galerie in München, dem Louvre und dem Museum of Modern Art vertreten. Alfred Kohler malte bevorzugt Aquarelle, seine Themen waren Blumen, Landschaften, Stilleben, Porträts und gelegentlich auch Akte. Sein Markenzeichen sind seine großformatigen Blumenaquarelle, die in Ausdruck und Leuchtkraft denen Emil Noldes in keiner Weise nachstehen. Alfred Kohler ist ein Meister der Farben oder frei nach Tolkien: Herr der Farben. Erfreulich, daß die Aquarelle dieses Meisters der klassischen Moderne heute noch zu einem so erschwinglichen Preis zu haben sind. Große Kunst zum kleinen Preis mit großem Potential, was die Preisentwicklung betrifft, schließlich werden vergleichbare Arbeiten von Nolde zum Dreißigfachen Preis gehandelt..

        Tom&#39;s A-Cold. A Tale

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited,, 1933. London: Macmillan and Co., Limited,, 1933. Octavo. Original green cloth, black morocco label to spine. With the dust jacket. Spine rolled. An excellent, fresh copy in the rubbed jacket with some nicks, small chips, and short splits. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "My dear Edith, This is a rather uncertain venture into a new genre. I fear you will not find it possible to look so kindly on it as you did my last, but I am still your most devoted, most enthusiastic admirer, John Collier". Collier was a fixture on the English literary scene during the 1920s and 30s, counting among his friends the Sitwells, E. M. Forster, and Wyndham Lewis. Tom&#39;s A-Cold, taking its title from Shakespeare&#39;s King Lear, was his third novel, set in a post-apocalyptic future in which society has reverted to a medieval way of life.
