        A NOVEL (AS YET UNTITLED)

      New York: Viking, 1935. Cream wrappers, printed in black. Wrappers somewhat handsoiled and smudged, with some creasing at extreme corners of wrappers and endleaves, a good copy. One of 500 advance promotional copies of PATHS OF GLORY, Cobb's first and only published novel, issued as part of a contest offering $50 for the best suggested title "whether it is used or not." Cobb served in France as an enlistee in the Canadian Army, and his novel about the execution of three French soldiers for "cowardice" in order to cover up the mistakes of their commanding general is one of the most widely known anti- war novels of the pre-WWII years. The 1957 film adaptation by Stanley Kubrick did much to remind the post-war public of its virtues,

Lawrence was better known for being the younger brother of T.E. Lawrence.

        Innocence and Design.

      London: Macmillan & Co., Ltd. 1935 - Octavo. Original green cloth, elaborate textured decoration to boards in blind, titles to spine gilt. With the pictorial dust ajcket. A lovely copy in the typically sunned and little rubbed dust jacket with a single small internal repair. Illustrated throughout by Sykes. First edition, sole impression. A spectacular pseudonymous, presentation copy, inscribed and with an original presentation ink drawing, by Sykes, "To my great new friend Rex Whistler, Richard Waughburton 5th July 1935". Beneath this inscription is an drawing in which two figures stting hunched over a writing table, quills in hands, one pointing up to the associated inscription. Innocence and Design was a notorious roman a clef jointly written by Sykes and Byron. It was Byron's only full-length work of fiction. A presentation to such a luminary as the great Rex Whistler, especially given the nature and subject of this novel, is compelling indeed. [Attributes: First Edition]

        [Two Typed Letters, Signed, an Autograph Letter, Signed, and Associated Manuscript and Printed Items]

      Ausable Forks, NY, 1935. Three pages, on. three quarto sheets of Kent's letterhead, signed variously, "R.K.", "Rockwell" and" Rockwell Kent." Folded for mailing, generally very good, with envelopes. Kent writes to Hazel Kapstein (later Harwell), assistant to publisher Thorne Donnelley of Reuben R. Donnelly Corp. and the Lakeside Press, publisher in 1930 of Kent's illustrated edition of MOBY DICK). asking her to return a book Kent left when he last visited Donnelley's house; anticipating her wedding which was apparently to be held at the Kents' home; writing concerning a mutual friend in the hospital; explaining "Some days ago a box of books arrived from the Lakeside Press. I inscribed them all ... but, unfortunately, didn't think of little pictures for your and Thorne's copies. If I had them here now I'd repair the oversight ... I had completely forgotten about the bookplate ... I'll try to do it very soon ..."; asking after some business details and requesting names and addresses for a mailing, and sending thanks for "... getting so exhilarated that you could make our dinner last as long as possible without missing the train, for being even more charming than efficient, for promising to be married from our house, and for having done every grand and little service that came within your long reach to make our visit to Chicago care free...." Together with a typed letter signed, one page, on her husband's printed "tree" woodcut letterhead, from Frances Kent, also to Hazel Kapstein, reiterating her husband's request for assistance in having his book returned and sending personal greetings, and a typed, one-page post-script signed "Dickie" from Kent's son. Also included in the lot are the following ephemeral items: [a] Kent's printed mailing label featuring his "tree" woodcut design and printed return address, with Hazel Kapstein's address typed in the mailing panel; bearing the ink stamp of receipt, as above; mounted to another sheet (presumably the remains of the mailing envelope; neatly trimmed); [b] a large blue printed mailing label featuring a landscape by Kent and incorporating his return address and the heading "Rockwellkentiana", with Hazel Harwell's information typed in the address field and a postmark; on a portion of a large blue envelope covered in stamps and postmarks and a printed label (featuring an angel winking) which reads: "Postmaster: This package may be opened for inspection"; [c] a printed booklabel, mailing label or announcement card, bearing the printed return address of R.R. Donnelley & Sons Co., The Lakeside Press, bordered by what appears to be a silver and black image by Kent of a warrior leaning on a staff or masthead beneath a starlit sky; [d] one of Kent's bookplates, designed for Frank H. Whitmore, featuring a three-masted ship on the open sea, enclosed in a circle, with Kent's initials in the lower left-hand side of the image; and [e] an unused copy of a return reservation postcard addressed to Mr. Kittredge at The Lakeside Press, for a publicity event, indicating a reply to "your invitation to dinner and to meet Mr. Rockwell Kent on Friday evening, December fifth. Please reserve a place for me." With the signature and date lines left blank.

        Twenty Poems by Rupert Brooke.

      London: Sidgwick & Jackson, Ltd, 1935. Frist edition, second printing in the same month as the first. Profile portrait of Brooke on the wrappers which are bound in. 12mo, bound by William Matthews, with his stamp on the lower turn-in, full green morocco with an art deco style monogram of the artist with gilt line going over the two sides and the spine, spine with raised bands with gilt ruling in the compartments. Spine and top edge faded to brown with a little rubbing to the spine but a great example of a 1930s Matthews binding. William Matthews was one of the most important early twentieth century British binders who was known for his exquisite binding work and his huge influence as a teacher of binding. He won a scholarship to the Central School of Arts & Crafts at the age of 13 and in 1914 was apprenticed to W.T. Morrell as a finisher. The war interrupted his studies but he returned in 1919 to finish his apprenticeship and begin his long teaching career at the Central.

        Dojmy z SSSR [Impressions of the USSR]

      Exod [1935], Brno - 136pp. Sextodecimo in wraps. Short tear to spine at top, 1/2" tear to front hinge at foot creasing to rear wrap and to front wrap corners; interior is clean and tight. Illustrated with 9 drawings by the author. Curiously, while this copy has one of the woodcuts from the original edition as its cover illustration, the nine illustrations within are pen-and-ink drawings, not woodcuts. The text appears to have been printed from the same type as the third edition, although it does not follow the same pagination. An illustrated account of the author's travels to Leningrad, St. Petersburg, Moskow, Kharkiv, Kiev, and Kiev. Bocho áková-Dittrichová also devotes a chapter each to a collective farm and the Dnieper Hydroelectric Station.Helena Bocho áková-Dittrichová (1894-1980) was the first female wordless novelist, and the only woman to work in this medium during its heyday. She was born in the Moravian region of what is now the Czech Republic and spent most of her life in Brno, the Moravian capital. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and in 1923 received a government scholarship to study printmaking in Paris. Bocho áková-Dittrichová's unpublished wordless novel Malí ka Na Cestách [The Artist on Her Journey] recounts this period in her life. In Paris, she first encountered the wordless novels of Flemish artist Franz Masereel, the originator of the form, and was inspired to create her own. Over the course of her long career, Bocho áková-Dittrichová published several wordless novels, along with travelogues and historical works. She also worked as a printmaker and illustrator, and was highly regarded in her native land, though largely unknown elsewhere. This changed in 2014, when the National Museum of Women in the Arts held an exhibition of her work entitled "The First Woman Graphic Novelist: Helena Bocho áková-Dittrichová," and this important artist finally began to gain global recognition. Her work, however, is still not widely available. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        contenant tous les Termes du Droit Canonique avec un Sommaire de l`Histoire et des Institutions et de l`état actuel de la discipline publié sous la direction de R. Naz avec le Concours d`un grand nombre de Collaboratuers.

      Paris, Ané, 1935-1965. 7 Bde. 4to. Ältere, einfache Leinenbände. Kollation: (I: Abamita-Azzon-1935) 1.600 Sp.; (II: Baccalauréat-Cathedraticum-1937) 1.448 Sp.; (III: Cause-Condis-1942) 1.528 Sp.; (IV: Condition-Droits Acquis-1949) 1.528 Sp.; (V: Duacensis (collectio)-Intéret et Usure-1953) 1.528 Sp.; (VI: Interférences-Pittoni-1957) 1.522 Sp.; (VII: Placentin-Zype, van den-1965) 1.688 Sp. Im Jahre 1927 wurde die erste Lieferung dieses großartigen Lexikon für die Kanonistik ausgeliefert, der Herausgeber zu dieser Zeit war A. Amanieu, Professor für kanonisches Recht an der Universität Lille. In der Verlagsanzeige von 1927 wurden drei Hauptkriterien vorgestellt: 1. Die gesamte kanonistische Terminologie soll erfasst, erläutert und deren historische Entwicklung behandelt werden, dies gilt für allgemein juristische Begriffe innerhalb der Kanonistik wie typisch kanonistische. 2. Weiterhin werden die Institutionen und auch die Mittel der Kirche erfasst, untersucht und vorgestellt, die die Kirche zur Schaffung, Verbreitung und auch Veränderung ihrer Kanonistik benutzt. Dies wird auch im historischen Kontext unternommen. 3. Die Träger der Kanonistik, vor allem die mit der Kanonistk beschäftgten Juristen werden biographisch vorgestellt und mit entspre4chenden apparatus criticus erfasst. Der erste Band beispielsweise beginnt gleich mit dem berühmten Abbas antiquus, einem Kanonisten des 13. Jahrhunderts, der oft mit Abbas Panormitanus, einem Kanonisten des 14. Jahrhundts verwechselt wird. Erfasst werden nicht nur Kanonisten, sondn auch alle Legisten, die mit dem kanonischen Recht in Berührung gekommen sind, etwa Andreas Alciat (1492-1550), dem berühmten Gründer der humanistischen Jurisprudenz, der vereinzelt, eher selten auch kleinere Kommentare zum Corpus iuris canonici verfasst hat. Auch aus dem protestantischen Raum sind Juristen aufgenommen und vorgestellt, die letzte Spalte des siebenten (letzten) Bandes zeigt den internationalen Zuschnitt des Lexikons, das in der Kanonistk (wie in der Legistik) durch die europäische Rezeption fast selbstverständlich ist: Thomas Zerola, italienischer Jurist (1548-1603), Gaspard Ziegler, deutscher Jurist aus Wittenberg (1621-1690), Henricus Zoesius, holländischer Jurist aus Löwen (gest. 1627) und Franciscus van den Zypaeus, französischer Jurist (1580-1650).

        Blandings Castle

      312 pages with deckle fore edge. Small octavo (7 3/4" x 5 1/2") bound in original publisher's green cloth with dark green lettering to spine and pictorial emblem to front cover corner in pictorial jacket. ((Jasen: 53a; McIlvaine: pages 68-69) First American edition.Blandings Castle and Elsewhere is a collection of short stories by P. G. Wodehouse. It was first published in the United Kingdom on 12 April 1935 by Herbert Jenkins, London, and, as Blandings Castle, in the United States on 20 September 1935 by Doubleday Doran, New York. All the stories had previously appeared in Strand Magazine (UK) and all except the last in various US magazines. The first six stories all take place at the book's namesake Blandings Castle; they are set some time between the events of Leave it to Psmith (1923) and those of Summer Lightning (1929). The seventh concerns Bobbie Wickham, an acquaintance and sometime fiancee of Bertie Wooster, and the last five are narrated by Mr Mulliner. The master of Blandings is, nominally at least, Lord Emsworth. Clarence, the ninth Earl, is an amiably absent-minded old chap, who is charming because of his slow, relaxed lifestyle and the simple obsessions that make him oblivious to the absurd melodrama of his family, namely his home, gardens, pumpkins, and his champion pig, Empress of Blandings. He is never happier than when pottering about the grounds on a fine sunny day. Lord Emsworth's ten sisters (all of whom look like the "daughter of a hundred earls", except for Hermione, who looks like a cook), his brother Galahad ("Gally"), his daughter Mildred, his sons Freddie and George, and his numerous nieces, nephews, and in-laws inhabit the castle from time to time. For the Threepwood family, and their friends, the castle is forever available for indefinite residence, and is occasionally used as a temporary prison—known as "Devil's Island" or "The Bastille"—for love-struck young men and ladies to calm down. Blandings Castle, lying in the picturesque Vale of Blandings, Shropshire, England, is two miles from the town of Market Blandings, home to at least nine pubs, most notably the Emsworth Arms. The castle is a noble pile, of Early Tudor building ("its history is recorded in England's history books and Viollet-le-Duc has written of its architecture", according to Something Fresh). One of England's largest stately homes, it dominates the surrounding country, standing on a knoll of rising ground at the southern end of the celebrated Vale of Blandings; the Severn gleams in the distance. From its noble battlements, the Wrekin can be seen. The house has numerous guest rooms, many of which haven't been used since Queen Elizabeth roamed the country. Of those still in use, the Garden Room is the finest, usually given to the most prestigious guest; it has a balcony outside its French windows, which can be easily accessed via a handy drainpipe. The main library has a smaller library leading off it, and windows overlooking some flowerbeds; it is here that Lord Emsworth is often to be found on wet days, his nose deep in an improving tome of country lore, his favorite being Whiffle on The Care of the Pig.Condition:Small split at spine head, corners lightly rubbed. Jacket spine ends lightly chipped, some closed edge tears, closed tear at front head hinge with a crease, price clipped else a better than very good copy in a very good jacket.

        The Lords of Creation

      New York and London: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1935. First edition (stated) with I-K below statement. Hardcover. VG A solid clean copy, previous owner's name inked on inside of front cover, no other marks, top and bottom of spine solid with no wear or tears. No surprises. Red cloth with embossed seal in lower right ront cover, embossed title upon spine. xii, 483 pp., (3) Illustrated by 16 b&w photographs on 8 plates. The previous owner of this book was Harry L. Wells, of Evanston, IL. Wells was an Alumnus of Northwestern University and served it in varying capacities, including being appointed Business Manager in 1934. He has signed the book with the address of 1936 Sheridan Road. A pleasant surprise to find this as such a sturdy, clean and desirable example of this scarce title. Quite suitable for gift giving though the spine lettering is somewhat faded. Preface, 14 chapters, appendix and index. A scarce and classic financial history of US (1890-1929) written at the height of the Great Depression. Allen was an historian educated at Groton and Harvard, as well as Associate Editor of Harpers. As stated elsewhere: Frederick Lewis Allen's insightful financial history of the United States-from the late 1800s through the stock market collapse of 1929-remains a seminal work on what brought on America's worst economic disaster: the Great Depression. In the decades following the Civil War, America entered an era of unprecedented corporate expansion, with ultimate financial power in the hands of a few wealthy industrialists who exploited the capitalist system for everything it was worth. The Rockefellers, Fords, Morgans, and Vanderbilts were the "lords of creation" who, along with like-minded magnates, controlled the economic destiny of the country, unrestrained by regulations or moral imperatives. Through a combination of foresight, ingenuity, ruthlessness, and greed, America's giants of industry remolded the US economy in their own preferred image. In so doing, they established their absolute power and authority, ensuring that they-and they alone-would control the means of production, transportation, energy, and commerce-thereby setting the stage for the most devastating global financial collapse in history. As Gretchen Morgenson thoughtfully states in her introduction, "It is not immediately clear why the frequency and severity of financial scandals is increasing in the United States. What is clear is that we need to understand the origins of these disasters, as well as the policies and people that bring them on. . . . While distant actions may seem unrelated to current events, rereading about the past almost always provides surprising insights into the present." The Lords of Creation, first published in the midst of the Great Depression, when the financial catastrophe was still painfully fresh, is a fascinating story of bankers, railroad tycoons, steel magnates, speculators, scoundrels, and robber barons. It is a tale of innovation and shocking exploitation-and a sobering reminder that history can indeed repeat itself.

In so doing, they established their absolute power and authority, ensuring that they--and they alone--would control the means of production, transportation, energy, and commerce--thereby setting the stage for the most devastating global financial collapse in history. As Gretchen Morgenson thoughtfully states in her introduction, "It is not immediately clear why the frequency and severity of financial scandals is increasing in the United States. What is clear is that we need to understand the origins of these disasters, as well as the policies and people that bring them on. . . . While distant actions may seem unrelated to current events, rereading about the past almost always provides surprising insights into the present." The Lords of Creation, first published in the midst of the Great Depression, when the financial catastrophe was still painfully fresh, is a fascinating story of bankers, railroad tycoons, steel magnates, speculators, scoundrels, and robber barons. It is a tale of innovation and shocking exploitation--and a sobering reminder that history can indeed repeat itself. VG A solid clean copy, previous owner's name inked on inside of front cover, no other marks, top and bottom of spine solid with no wear or tears. No surprises.

        Map of Mexico City and Valley.

      Mexico. Frances Toor Studios. 1935. Color pictographic / pictorial street map, 19 3/4 x 25 inches on sheet size 20 1/2 x 26 inches, professionally mounted on linen. Light wear to folds, tears to mid right map now visible only on close examination. Brightly colored pictorial map designed by the Guatemalan artist Carlos Merida (1891-1984) showing a street plan of central Mexico City with pictographs of many buildings and a numbered "Business Directory" of 21 places in the cartouche, referencing numbers on the map. A note under the map states that "the motifs of the border consist of Aztec and colonial symbols of the names of suburban places." At the lower centre of the map is an inset map of the valley surrounding Mexico City. A wonderful example of the "translation" of the twentieth century decorative map that MacDonald Gill pioneered, here with a Hispanic sensibility.

        Blandings Castle

      Doubleday & Co, Garden City 1935 - 312 pages with deckle fore edge. Small octavo (7 3/4" x 5 1/2") bound in original publisher's green cloth with dark green lettering to spine and pictorial emblem to front cover corner in pictorial jacket. ((Jasen: 53a; McIlvaine: pages 68-69) First American edition. Blandings Castle and Elsewhere is a collection of short stories by P. G. Wodehouse. It was first published in the United Kingdom on 12 April 1935 by Herbert Jenkins, London, and, as Blandings Castle, in the United States on 20 September 1935 by Doubleday Doran, New York. All the stories had previously appeared in Strand Magazine (UK) and all except the last in various US magazines. The first six stories all take place at the book's namesake Blandings Castle; they are set some time between the events of Leave it to Psmith (1923) and those of Summer Lightning (1929). The seventh concerns Bobbie Wickham, an acquaintance and sometime fiancee of Bertie Wooster, and the last five are narrated by Mr Mulliner. The master of Blandings is, nominally at least, Lord Emsworth. Clarence, the ninth Earl, is an amiably absent-minded old chap, who is charming because of his slow, relaxed lifestyle and the simple obsessions that make him oblivious to the absurd melodrama of his family, namely his home, gardens, pumpkins, and his champion pig, Empress of Blandings. He is never happier than when pottering about the grounds on a fine sunny day. Lord Emsworth's ten sisters (all of whom look like the "daughter of a hundred earls", except for Hermione, who looks like a cook), his brother Galahad ("Gally"), his daughter Mildred, his sons Freddie and George, and his numerous nieces, nephews, and in-laws inhabit the castle from time to time. For the Threepwood family, and their friends, the castle is forever available for indefinite residence, and is occasionally used as a temporary prison—known as "Devil's Island" or "The Bastille"—for love-struck young men and ladies to calm down. Blandings Castle, lying in the picturesque Vale of Blandings, Shropshire, England, is two miles from the town of Market Blandings, home to at least nine pubs, most notably the Emsworth Arms. The castle is a noble pile, of Early Tudor building ("its history is recorded in England's history books and Viollet-le-Duc has written of its architecture", according to Something Fresh). One of England's largest stately homes, it dominates the surrounding country, standing on a knoll of rising ground at the southern end of the celebrated Vale of Blandings; the Severn gleams in the distance. From its noble battlements, the Wrekin can be seen. The house has numerous guest rooms, many of which haven't been used since Queen Elizabeth roamed the country. Of those still in use, the Garden Room is the finest, usually given to the most prestigious guest; it has a balcony outside its French windows, which can be easily accessed via a handy drainpipe. The main library has a smaller library leading off it, and windows overlooking some flowerbeds; it is here that Lord Emsworth is often to be found on wet days, his nose deep in an improving tome of country lore, his favorite being Whiffle on The Care of the Pig. Condition: Small split at spine head, corners lightly rubbed. Jacket spine ends lightly chipped, some closed edge tears, closed tear at front head hinge with a crease, price clipped else a better than very good copy in a very good jacket.

        MAD LOVE (1935)

      MGM 1935 - Vintage original 8 x 10" (20 x 25 cm.) single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Peter Lorre, Frances Drake, Colin Clive, Ted Healy, Sara Haden, Keye Luke, Cora Sue Collins, dir: Karl Freund; MGM. This is likely the most bizarre film MGM made during the 1930s. Horror films were the rage and thus the great studio wanted an entry into the genre. Peter Lorre played one of his strangest roles, and in this still as Doctor Gogol he is at his creepiest frightening Frances Drake (as Yvonne Orlac) into submission. Lorre is an insane surgeon with an obsession with an actress (Frances Drake as Yvonne Orlac) who does an act in which she is burned at the stake. When her husband (Colin Clive as Stephen Orlac), a pianist, loses use of his hands in a train accident, the mad doctor transplants a pair of hands from a murderous knife thrower onto him. Strange murders are pinned on Orlac as Dr. Gogol makes a play for Yvonne. Great expressionist cinema art from director Freund (best known for his superb cinematography with its routes in German expressionism), and camera work by Gregg Toland. The film was mercilessly censored and cut because of the post-Code taboos that it attempted to break. Some countries would not even show it. The truncated version we have today is still effective, however. Ink stamp on verso for a showing at the New York City Roxy Theatre. Very minor handling. FI

        HISTORY OF HERODOTUS OF HALICARNASSUS. The Translation of G. Rawlinson Revised and Annotated by A. W. Lawrence.To which is added a Life of Herodotus and the Behistun Inscription

      Bloomsbury The Nonesuch Press 1935 - LIMITED EDITION and FIRST NONESUCH PRESS PRINTING one of only 675 numbered copies. This copy with the RARE PUBLISHER'S PROSPECTUS included. Illustrated with 9 large wood-engravings by V. Le Campion, one colour plate, and 9 double-page maps by T. Poulton. Printed in Nonesuch Plantin with Perpetua and Felicity italic types. Folio, publisher’s original half blue vellum over blue cloth, the spine lettered and elaborately decorated in gilt designs which follow to the turnovers , t.e.g. xxvi, 778 pp. A fine copy, clean and fresh and solid, the binding in beautiful condition with just a hint of the mellowing normally affecting the blue vellum used in binding this title, and without any of the bowing typical to the book. Internally very fresh and clean, a few spots to the end-papers only, the rare prospectus handsome and quite well preserved, with just a little foxing to the cover leaf. LIMITED EDITION, AND ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MODERN PRINTINGS of the Greek historian. This is very pleasing copy: the gilt is brilliant, the boards are not bowed as is usual, and the volume is clean throughout. In all likelihood this particular copy has never been read. Herodotus, the Greek historian was often called the "father of history" due to his systematic collection of sources and his attempt at intellectual rigor. His merits were ".the diligence with which he collected his materials, the candour and impartiality with which he has placed his facts before the reader, the absence of party bias and undue national vanity, and the breadth of his conception of the historian’s office." His work represents the first significant Greek writing and covers the struggle between Asia and Europe, ending in the Persian invasion of Greece (490 to 479 BC). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Mutiny on the Bounty Glass Cinema Advertising Slide.

      New York: National Studios, no date but, 1935. Glass slide, 83 x 100 mm., coloured transfer; in the original card mount. A fantastic reminder that while scholars and historians have argued for centuries about the true motives of the Bounty mutiny, that no such doubts troubled the producers at MGM when they released their seminal film starring Charles Laughton and Clark Gable in 1935.These coloured glass slides are fragile and thus rare survivals. They were used in cinemas as advertising slides for coming attractions, and this particular one, with its prominent positioning of the Tahitian woman with just a bare silhouette of the boat in the background, is a reminder of precisely just how "exotic" the Pacific setting was thought to be. The tagline for the movie posters was just as explicit: "A Thousand Hours of Hell For One Moment of Love!"Although it is not possible to be certain, the figure may be based on the Hawaiian-born actor Mamo Clark, who played Gable's love-interest in the film. Very good.

Flashbacks detail a history of pre-adolescent sexual abuse, liberal misuse of alcohol and far too many encounters with men. This time, Gloria desperately hopes, will be different. . . . O'Hara always claimed that his various protagonists were taken from the psychological profiles of real people, but here was a bone fide roman à clef, drawn from the diaries and tragic demise of one Starr Faithful, alleged to have had relationships with a number of prominent citizens, including former mayor Jimmie Walker."
