MILL HOUSE PRESS. CARTER, John, editor, & GATHORNE-HARDY, Robert, translator.
Stanford Dingley: Mill House Press, 1934. Parts I & II (all issued) of a proposed 6 parts. The prospectus declares that "the edition will consist of not fewer than 60 or more than 100 copies". Printed by hand in Baskerville type on hand-made paper in red and black. 8vo., original blue wrappers with printed paper labels. In very good condition. The project was abandoned after these two parts as the subscriptions weren't numerous enough. The final part was to have the title page, introduction etc so there is no title page. Apparently the last leaf we have here (p.80) was not bound in to all copies. Of the 10 institutional holdings only Indiana University lists a copy with 80pp, 6 list pagination at 79pp. and 3 have no pagination. With the original 4pp. prospectus.

F. Scott Fitzgerald
F. Scott Fitzgerald. Tender is the Night. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons. 1934. The first printing of the first edition, with the publisher's "A" and seal on the copyright page. An exceptional, near fine copy, with light evidence of handling and minute rubbing at the extremities. There's nearly no flaking to the still-bright gilt lettering on the spine. There's slight foxing to the page edges only. The first-issue dustjacket (with blurbs by Eliot, Mencken, and Rosenfeld) is in bright good condition. The $2.50 price is intact. There's chipping at the head and heel of the spine as much as about half an inch deep, affecting the "T" and "E" and the publisher's name. The spine is sun-toned. Several short closed tears, at the edges and along the folds of the jacket, have been archivally mended for stability, but in essence it's completely unrestored. The little mending could be undone at a stroke. [Attributes: First Edition; In Dust Jacket]

A complete training course for would-be Comintern Party members, condensing the accumulated wisdom of the first 15 years of Soviet history into a series of flash-cards, each headlined with a revolutionary slogan with explanatory text following. Useful for understanding the myriad shifts in position that accompanied the Third Period and the first years of Stalin's leadership. Likely prepared for distribution at the Comintern's Seventh World Congress of 1935, an event immortalized in Leon Trotsky's scathing (and ultimately fatal) polemic "On the Seventh Congress of the Comintern." 7 copies in OCLC. First edition, illustrated tan cloth clam-shell box (14.5x11.5x6cm), containing 227 loose cards and errata list and 15pp. introductory pamphlet; text is in Russian. Light wear and soil to box; convents Very Good and apparently complete, contents conforming to all catalogued copies listed in OCLC. [Attributes: First Edition]

Tipografia Giornale d'Italia, 1934. In-8 gr., 9 voll., mz. pelle mod., decoraz. e tit. oro al dorso, pp. 32 / 24 / 16, con ill. in b.n. o in tinta nel t. Di questa celebrata rivista mensile offriamo una raccolta pressoché completa di 9 annate, dal gennaio 1934 (Anno VI) al dicembre 1942 (Anno XIV). Tutta la raccolta è ben conservata (6 voll., purtroppo, portano incollata sulla prima pagina di ogni numero l'etichetta con l'indirizzo del destinatario, non sempre intatta). Nata nel 1929, la rivista ha cadenza mensile ma formato da quotidiano. Inizialmente, oltre a proporre ricette e consigli gastronomici, pubblica anche articoli firmati da donne scrittrici e ricette di poeti italiani, oltre a numerose rubriche. Nel 1934, col passaggio della direzione a Fanny Dini, la "La Cucina Italiana" si presenta come una moderna rivista per signore, cambia formato, le 8 pagine diventano 32, e si introducono le illustrazioni. Anche il contenuto muta: vengono ampliate le tematiche gastronomiche e introdotte nuove rubriche (dedicate alla bellezza, all'arredamento della casa, alle giovani dame della borghesia perchè diventino "perfette massaie"); dal 1935 appare anche la rubrica sulla moda e vi è persino uno spazio per il galateo. Nell'ottobre 1937 la prima pagina del mensile si presenta come una copertina vera e propria e diventa a colori due anni dopo. "La Cucina Italiana" chiude per la guerra nel luglio 1943 ma rinascerà nel dopoguerra.

A well-made album from Schäffel in very good condition, with tissue guards, the vintage images are all in fine condition. Only a few of the silver gelatin images show signs of solarization on their edges. There are seven images of Baghdad, among them "New Street"; St. George's Church"; "New Rafisan Hotel." Also, numerous images taken in Kurdistan at the Royal Air Force (R.A.F.) Summer Training Camp at Ser Armadia, a few images of the fellow officers of the young man who took these pictures, known only to us from an inscription dated 1936 on the inside front cover as "Jim." Several of these images record the championships captured by C Squadron, as well as the personnel of the Iraq Rifle Command VIII (1935). Also, the personnel of the Airport Depot Military Band and the Depot Dance band (1935) are recorded. There are some photographs of the tribal people in their native dress. The images of prewar Jerusalem under the British Mandate are striking. Included are images of the Wailing Wall, the Damascus Gate, the Via Dolorosa, the Mount of Olives, and a view from the top of the Mount of Olives towards the wilderness.

SPANISH CIVIL WAR] KANTOR, MacKinlay
Westfield, NJ and New York: 1934-1938. Original typescript donated by the author to a 1938 charity auction organized by the League of American Writers to raise funds for the Medical Bureau to Aid Spanish Democracy. Offered with the manuscript, and included here, is a signed essay on the composing of "The Voice of Bugle Ann," which Kantor claims took him about six days, three in June and another three in September, 1934, the three month hiatus spent working for Paramount Pictures in Hollywood ("I hoped to finish the story out there. But those who have been to Hollywood will understand why I did not"). The story, a tale of a man recently out of prison and his bond with the foxhound Bugle Ann, was offered to several literary magazines, many of whom turned the piece down because "the story didn't have enough woman-interest," or because there were already too many animal stories on the market ("One editor declared that he was over-stocked with animal stories -- he had one which they had been waiting for a year to run -- I think he said it was about a kangaroo.") According to his essay, Kantor had never parted with a manuscript before, and while the collector Benjamin Hitz was willing to spend as much as $150, his agent assured him he would be able to get it for much less. Indeed, Hitz managed to win the manuscript for just $60 despite what appears to have been something of a rowdy auction as described by Colton Storm of Retz & Storm: "It was the first auction I ever attended at which the bidders were able to dine, wine, and bid simultaneously." Among the glitterati present were … [Click Below for Full Description]
