        Inaccuracies about Lindbergh's 1927 flight to Mexico in the Spirit of St. Louis, where he first met his future wife, Anne Morrow, prompt Lindbergh to pen an explanatory letter to the author

      Englewood, New Jersey, April 23, 1935. 18" X 14" Framed. "Autograph Letter Signed, ?Charles A. Lindbergh?, 1 page, 5.25"" X 7.25"" visible, Englewood, N.J., April 23, 1935, on personal stationery, to British author, Harold Nicolson, concerning some errors Nicolson made in a book describing Lindbergh?s trip to Mexico in the Spirit of St. Louis, matted and framed with an image of Lindbergh standing next to the plane, to a finished size of 18"" by 14"". Light soiling and the usual folds, overall in apparent near fine condition. In full: ?Dear Mr. Nicholson: / I hope you will excuse my taking the liberty of making a few notations in the pages of your book dealing with my flight to Mexico in the Spirit of St. Louis. They are in regard only to facts of which I have personal and definite knowledge./ With best regards / Charles A. Lindbergh [signed]?. Charles Lindbergh is most famous for his successful trans-Atlantic flight to secure the Orteig Prize for flying from New York to Paris nonstop. After receiving the Medal of Honor for his journey in 1927, Lindbergh became a national hero, and due to his celebrity status, traveled throughout the U.S. and even to neighboring Mexico. The first time Lindbergh flew over Mexican territory in the ""Spirit of St. Louis"" was September 23rd, 1927, when he flew over Mexicali, Baja California en route from San Diego, CA to Tucson, AZ as a part of Lindbergh's successful tour to promote aeronautics sponsored by The Guggenheim Fund. In 1927, Lindbergh made a nonstop flight between Washington D.C. and Mexico City, his first formal visit. He was invited by Dwight Morrow, the new American Ambassador to Mexico, to do a good will tour. Dwight Morrow and Charles Lindbergh liked each other from the start and became friends throughout the tour. On December 21st, 1927, Anne Morrow, Dwight's daughter, arrived in Mexico to spend Christmas with her family. Anne was introduced to Charles at the US Embassy in Mexico City. In a little more than a year, Anne and Charles Lindbergh would be engaged and soon after, married. Harold Nicolson, British politician and author, published a biography of Charles Lindbergh?s father-in-law Dwight Morrow in 1935, four years after Morrow died. The book was simply entitled ""Dwight Morrow,"" and it is that book Lindbergh annotated and referred to in this letter."

Harris depicting a stylized plantation scene with the skyscrapers of New York in the far upper right background. Pp. 3-5 music.

"The idea of composing a full-length opera based on DuBose Heyward?'s novel Porgy about life among the black inhabitants of ?'Catfish Row?' in Charleston, South Carolina, first occurred to Gershwin when he read the book in 1926. After many delays, Heyward and the Gershwin brothers signed a contract in October 1933 with the Theatre Guild in New York, and the collaboration was under way. Gershwin began the score in February 1934; during most of the next summer he stayed in South Carolina, composing and absorbing local colour. By early 1935 the composition was finished, and Gershwin spent the next several months orchestrating the work." Richard Crawford in Grove online

        Tales of Mystery and Imagination

      London: George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd. 1935 - Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. First trade edition, first printing. Publisher's black cloth, lettered in gilt, with an illustration to the front board in blind, pictorial black and white endpapers; in the original pictorial dust jacket, with Rackham's illustrations in black, white, and orange, lettered in black and white. Book about fine, with a hint of wear to the spine ends, sturdy binding, former owner's bookplate and some light rippling to the front free endpaper, otherwise bright and fresh interior; price-clipped dust jacket, with minor wear to the extremities, short closed tear to the spine head with some tape repair to the verso, bright and fresh panels. Overall, a near fine and handsome copy. Tales of Mystery and Imagination is a collection of 25 of Poe's short stories. Ranging in themes from the mysterious and fantastical to the macabre and eerie, these stories include many of Poe's best-known works. Specifically, this volume contains "The Fall of the House of Usher," "The Tell-Tale Heart," "The Mask of the Red Death," "The Pit and the Pendulum," "The Cask of Amontillado," and "Eleonora," among others. Additionally, this volume contains 29 illustrations by Arthur Rackham, comprised of 12 color plates and 17 black and white illustrations. Arthur Rackham (1867-1939) was a prolific British artist and illustrator, best known for his deluxe editions of popular children's books. Artistically inclined since childhood, Rackham started out illustrating for newspapers, but it was not until he began drawing for children's literature that he received critical acclaim. In response to his burgeoning fame, Rackham's publisher, William Heinemann, began producing deluxe and trade editions of his illustrated works, the first being Rip Van Winkle in 1905. Deluxe editions were produced in a limited edition of numbered copies (ranging in quantity from 250 - 2,020), bound in vellum bindings, printed on handmade paper, and signed by the illustrator. The trade editions were published concurrently in simple bindings, on thinner paper, and with fewer color plates. This publication strategy benefited both publisher and artist; Rackham produced about one book per year and would have an annual gallery exhibition showing his original artwork for his latest book. The recipient of multiple awards for illustrations, Rackham was a diverse artist with a talent for both the fantastical and the intricacies of human nature, as demonstrated in his famous illustrations for Peter Pan.

        Onchi Koshiro Shibun-shu^ KISETSU-HYO^

      1935. ONCHI Koshiro. Onchi Koshiro Shibun-shu KISETSU-HYO. Tokyo: Aoi- Shobo. Showa 10 [1935]. This copy is #50 of only 50 deluxe copies from a total edition of 200. 3 full-page color illustrations by Onchi. Folio, 36 x 31 cm, printed on very heavy paper, bound in gilt-printed Japanese paper over boards. Besides the illustrations, Onchi wrote the poems in this collection and was responsible for the book's design. The text reproduces his calligraphy. The book is signed by Onchi and contains a photogravure portrait of him. Interestingly, it is rendered a unique copy by the fact that Onchi further presented the book to a "Saito^-shi" and wrote a poem dated January 1936 on the signature page. This is the deluxe and only complete edition of this work, being bound in hard covers and having all three illustrations Onchi designed for it. Since the printer never intended for these deluxe copies to be read, each of the first 50 copies of the 200 that comprise the fukan (supplementary) edition, which was printed on kyokushi (Japanese vellum) paper with only one of the Onchi's color prints and issued in a portfolio, originally accompanied the correspondingly numbered copy of the deluxe issue as a "reading copy" - though our copy has parted ways with its fukan companion. It is a tour de force of bookmanship, and the most elusive of Onchi's productions. Here in near perfect condition and with the Onchi poem brushed by him inside. [See Onchi, HON NO BIJUTSU, p 110].

        Seven Pillars of Wisdom

      London: Jonathan Cape Ltd., 1935. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is the British first trade edition, first printing in dust jacket, a superior copy for collectors. Seven Pillars of Wisdom is the story of T.E. Lawrence's (1888-1935) remarkable odyssey as instigator, organizer, hero, and tragic figure of the Arab revolt against the Ottoman Empire during the First World War, which he began as an eccentric junior intelligence officer and ended as "Lawrence of Arabia." This time defined Lawrence with indelible experience and celebrity, which he would spend the rest of his famously short life struggling to reconcile and reject, to recount and repress. Lawrence famously resisted publication of his masterwork for the general public during his lifetime. The saga is remarkable. He nearly completed a massive first draft in 1919, only to famously lose it when his briefcase was mislaid at a train station. This first draft was never recovered. At a fever pitch, Lawrence wrote a new 400,000 word draft in 1920. This punishing burst of writing was followed by an equally brutal process of editing by Lawrence. In 1922, a 335,000 word version was carefully circulated to select friends and literary critics - the famous "Oxford Text". George Bernard Shaw called it "a masterpiece". Nonetheless, Lawrence was unready to see it distributed to the public. Finally, in 1926, a further edited 250,000 word "Subscribers' Edition" was produced by Lawrence - but fewer than 200 copies were made, each lavishly and uniquely bound. The process cost Lawrence far more than he made in subscriptions. To recover the loss, Lawrence finally authorized an edition for the general public - but one even further abridged and entitled "Revolt in the Desert". It was only in the summer of 1935, in the weeks following Lawrence's death, that the text of the Subscribers' Edition was finally published for circulation to the general public in the form of a British first trade edition. Winston Churchill was among Lawrence's original subscribers to the 1926 edition, though Lawrence refused to allow Churchill to pay for his copy, as a token for his esteem for the work he and Churchill had done together in the Colonial Office after the First World War. Of this text, Winston Churchill wrote: "It ranks with the greatest books ever written in the English language. If Lawrence had never done anything except write this book as a mere work of the imagination his fame would last... But it is fact, not fiction... An epic, a prodigy, a tale of torment, and in the heart of it - A Man." Here is the first British trade edition, first printing, a near fine copy in a dust jacket that approaches near fine. The binding remains square, clean, and tight with sharp corners and bright gilt. We note only trivial wear to extremities and some minor scuffing. The contents are notably clean and bright, with no spotting and no previous ownership marks. Even the untrimmed fore and bottom edges remain bright and clean, with no age-toning or soiling. The brown top edge stain is unfaded. The first printing dust jacket is complete, with no losses and retaining the original front flap price. We note minor soiling and modest wear to extremities with a few tiny closed tears, but no chipping and no spine toning. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.

        [Photo Album]: Rural Scenes in Maine and New Hampshire

      Portland, Me.: Bicknell Mfg. Co.. [circa 1935]. Oblong octavo. String-tied flexible card covers with printed label of Bicknell Mfg. Co. of Portland, Maine, along with "Eustis. Chain of Ponds" in ink on the front cover. 52 leaves, each with a single gelatin silver photograph on the verso only. Each image is approximately 6" x 4". Each image is numbered, only a couple are captioned. Old repairs on the covers, chipping on covers and edges of the leaves, one leaf detached and trimmed, thus externally good plus, but internally very good or better with modest fading on a few images. The album depicts mostly rural scenes in Maine including Chain of Ponds and Eustis, and of the Dead River in New Hampshire. The images are dominated by pastoral scenes, a few of farm houses, and a few of monuments. J. Carleton Bicknell, who lost his right arm at age seven, was one of Maine's most accomplished photographers, founding his company in 1902 as the Bicknell Photo Company. Presumably these were master images used by Bicknell as part of his portfolio or as samples to peddle postcards or to offer for use in souvenir brochures. The images are beautifully composed, with most of them rising to the level of art in their composition and execution. Bicknell apparently specialized in hand-painted images; these are uncolored. Apparently a trove of Bicknell material was sold in 2005, from whence, we can only speculate, this album came. An uncommonly accomplished album by a notable Maine photographer. .

        Cranford

      1935. In a Fine 'Textured' Inlaid Binding by Bayntun (Rivi?re)[BAYNTUN (RIVI?RE), binders]. THOMSON, Hugh, illustrator. GASKELL, Mrs. [Elizabeth]. Cranford. With a preface by Anne Thackeray Ritchie and illustrations by Hugh Thomson. London: Macmillan and Co., 1935. Later Hugh Thomson illustrated edition. Octavo (7 1/16 x 4 3/4 inches; 180 x 120 mm.). Frontispiece, xxx, 298 pp. With 110 black and white illustrations in the text.Bound by Bayntun (Rivi?re), Bath ca. 1935 in full dark blue crushed levant morocco, covers decoratively bordered in gilt, front cover with a beautifully' contoured' inlaid design in red, tan, green and brown morocco reproduced from the illustration on page 240, spine with five raised bands, decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt, gilt board edges and turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. A very fine example.The front cover illustration is taken from the text illustration on page 240 and depicts Mary Smith (the narrator) posting a letter to Miss Matty "I dropped it in the post on my way home, and then for a minute I stood looking at the wooden pane with a gaping slit which divided me from the letter…"Cranford, which originally appeared as a serial in Charles Dickens' magazine, Household Words, 1851-53, and saw its first publication in book form in 1853, is "a series of linked sketches of life among the ladies of a quiet country village in the 1830s...The greatest charm of Cranford, which has kept it unfailingly popular, is its amused but loving portrait of the old-fashioned customs and 'elegant economy' of a delicately observed group of middle-aged figures in a landscape" (Oxford Companion to English Literature). Mrs. Elizabeth Gaskell (1810-1865), a "strong and independent-minded woman" (The Feminist Companion to Literature), was an important proto-Feminist writer who often tackled unorthodox subjects in her novels. Cranford, for example, concerns a community of spinsters who glory in their freedom from male interference. Mrs. Gaskell was "'the most popular, with small question, the most powerful and finished female novelist of an epoch singularly rich in female novelists'" (Enclyclopedia of British Women Writers, p. 264, citing Mrs. Gaskell's obituary in The Athenaeum)."Critical awareness of Gaskell as a social historian is now more balanced by awareness of her innovativeness and artistic development as a novelist. While scholars continue to debate the precise nature of her talent, they also reaffirm the singular attractiveness of her best works" (ibid) of which Cranford is one.

The covers are a little bowed, but essentially the album and its contents are in fine condition. Offered together with a copy of 'The Early Years of Western Region Steam - an Album of P.M. Alexander's Photographs' by P.B. Whitehouse (Wild Swan, 1983). The contents of the album complement nicely the material in the book, which is mainly from 1948 to 1952.

        Seven Pillars of Wisdom, the U S publisher's quarter leather limited edition, copy #111 of 750

      New York: Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc., 1935. First, Limited Edition. Hardcover. This is a superlative copy of the publisher's finely bound, hand-numbered limited issue of the U.S. first edition, copy #111 of 750, and perhaps the finest copy we have seen, in the original publisher's dust jacket and slipcase. Seven Pillars of Wisdom is the story of T.E. Lawrence's (1888-1935) remarkable odyssey as instigator, organizer, hero, and tragic figure of the Arab revolt against the Ottoman Empire during the First World War, which he began as an eccentric junior intelligence officer and ended as "Lawrence of Arabia." This time defined Lawrence with indelible experience and celebrity, which he would spend the rest of his famously short life struggling to reconcile and reject, to recount and repress. Lawrence famously resisted publication of his masterwork for the general public during his lifetime. The saga is remarkable.

It was only in the summer of 1935, in the weeks following Lawrence's death, that the text of the Subscribers' Edition was finally published for circulation to the general public. Simultaneous with both the British and U.S. general trade first editions were finely bound, hand-numbered limited editions of 750 copies. This U.S. limited issue is bound in quarter dark brown pigskin over maroon buckram boards with beveled edges, maroon top edge, and red and yellow head and foot bands. It was issued with a dust jacket and stout cardboard slipcase, both in brown paper with laid paper chain and wire lines. The dust jacket is printed only on the spine, the slipcase unadorned. Here is copy #111 of 750, hand numbered thus on the limitation page. Condition is near fine plus. The pigskin spine of this U.S. limited edition proved highly susceptible to toning, soiling, and cracking, so most surviving copies suffer shabby spine appearance. This copy is a notable exception, with a beautifully square, tight, and clean binding. The boards are flawless with virtually no wear. Spine presentation is exceptional; the spine is clean with no cracking, vivid gilt, and the least amount of toning - barely discernible - that we have ever seen. The contents are immaculate apart from a little transfer browning from the pastedown glue. The book is clearly unread, with uncut signatures throughout. We find no spotting and no previous ownership marks. The dark red topstain is unfaded, marred only by minor blemishes. The untrimmed fore and bottom edges are exceptionally clean with no signs of handling. The dust jacket is entirely complete, with no losses. We note minor wear to the spine ends, with some short closed tears, but no jacket spine toning. We have fitted the dust jacket with a removable, archival quality clear cover with acid-free paper backing. The original publisher's slipcase is intact with only minor, one inch splits starting at the bottom edge of the opening. We note only light overall scuffing and soiling. Please anticipate additional shipping cost for this large, heavy book, depending on destination. Bibliographic reference: O'Brien A053.

The herculean task of the United States Government today is to take care that its citizens have the necessities of life. We are seeking honestly and honorably to do this irrespective of class or group." President Roosevetl's veto message on the adjusted Compensation Act of 1935 (Veterans Bonus), delivered to Congress on May 22, 1935. He points out that there are many veterans benefits already enacted and that they whole country worked together to participate in World War I (agriculture, industry, etc.) and now many New Deal plans and much of the spending will go to benefit veterans as well as civilians.

        Seven Pillars of Wisdom, the U.S. publisher's quarter leather limited edition, copy #111 of 750

      New York: Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc., 1935. First, Limited Edition. Hardcover. This is a superlative copy of the publisher's finely bound, hand-numbered limited issue of the U.S. first edition, copy #111 of 750, and perhaps the finest copy we have seen, in the original publisher's dust jacket and slipcase. Seven Pillars of Wisdom is the story of T.E. Lawrence's (1888-1935) remarkable odyssey as instigator, organizer, hero, and tragic figure of the Arab revolt against the Ottoman Empire during the First World War, which he began as an eccentric junior intelligence officer and ended as "Lawrence of Arabia." This time defined Lawrence with indelible experience and celebrity, which he would spend the rest of his famously short life struggling to reconcile and reject, to recount and repress. Lawrence famously resisted publication of his masterwork for the general public during his lifetime. The saga is remarkable. He nearly completed a massive first draft in 1919, only to famously lose it when his briefcase was mislaid at a train station. It was never recovered. At a fever pitch, Lawrence wrote a new 400,000 word draft in 1920. This punishing burst of writing was followed by an equally brutal process of editing. In 1922, a 335,000 word version was circulated only to select friends and literary critics - the famous "Oxford Text". George Bernard Shaw called it "a masterpiece". Nonetheless, Lawrence was unready to see it distributed to the public. Finally, in 1926, a further edited 250,000 word "Subscribers' Edition" was produced by Lawrence - but fewer than 200 copies were made, each lavishly and uniquely bound. The process cost Lawrence more than he made in subscriptions. To recover the loss, Lawrence finally authorized an edition for the general public - but one even further abridged, titled "Revolt in the Desert". It was only in the summer of 1935, in the weeks following Lawrence's death, that the text of the Subscribers' Edition was finally published for circulation to the general public. Simultaneous with both the British and U.S. general trade first editions were finely bound, hand-numbered limited editions of 750 copies. This U.S. limited issue is bound in quarter dark brown pigskin over maroon buckram boards with beveled edges, maroon top edge, and red and yellow head and foot bands. It was issued with a dust jacket and stout cardboard slipcase, both in brown paper with laid paper chain and wire lines. The dust jacket is printed only on the spine, the slipcase unadorned. Here is copy #111 of 750, hand numbered thus on the limitation page. Condition is near fine plus. The pigskin spine of this U.S. limited edition proved highly susceptible to toning, soiling, and cracking, so most surviving copies suffer shabby spine appearance. This copy is a notable exception, with a beautifully square, tight, and clean binding. The boards are flawless with virtually no wear. Spine presentation is exceptional; the spine is clean with no cracking, vivid gilt, and the least amount of toning - barely discernible - that we have ever seen. The contents are immaculate apart from a little transfer browning from the pastedown glue. The book is clearly unread, with uncut signatures throughout. We find no spotting and no previous ownership marks. The dark red topstain is unfaded, marred only by minor blemishes. The untrimmed fore and bottom edges are exceptionally clean with no signs of handling. The dust jacket is entirely complete, with no losses. We note minor wear to the spine ends, with some short closed tears, but no jacket spine toning. We have fitted the dust jacket with a removable, archival quality clear cover with acid-free paper backing. The original publisher's slipcase is intact with only minor, one inch splits starting at the bottom edge of the opening. We note only light overall scuffing and soiling. Please anticipate additional shipping cost for this large, heavy book, depending on destination. Bibliographic reference: O'Brien A053.

        De ontrechting der Joden in Duitschland (The disenfranchisement of the Jews in Germany)

      Uitgegeven in opdracht van het Comité voor Bijzondere Joodsche Belangen door J. L. Joachimsthal (Published on behalf of the Comité voor Bijzondere Joodsche Belangen by J. L. Joachimsthal), Amsterdam 1935 - Large octavo. 28pp. Original photo-illustrated wrappers. Published by the Comité voor Bijzondere Joodsche Belangen (Committee for Special Jewish Interests), this booklet documents the progressive disenfranchisement of the Jews in the Third Reich. Nazis began to whittle away at the rights of Jews and other party enemies soon after Hitler became Chancellor in January of 1933. One example is the treatment of German Jews. A series of laws were created banning "non-Aryans" from civil service, the legal, medical, and dental professions, teaching positions, cultural and entertainment enterprises, and the press. At the 1935 party rally, the Nuremberg Laws were announced, completing the disenfranchisement of the Jews. Jews no longer were German citizens; they were subjects. They were forbidden to marry Aryans and forbidden to fly the Reich and national flags. Jews were separated politically, socially, and legally from the Germans. Minor shelf wear. Upper corners slightly bumped, thus slightly affecting pages throughout. Text in Dutch. Wrappers and interior in overall good+ to very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

With an introduction by Stuart Gilbert and illustrations by Henri Matisse. New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1935. First openly published American edition, limited to 1500 numbered copies signed by the artist, this being copy number 1251. Large quarto (11 3/4 x 9 1/8 inches; 298 x 230 mm.). xv, [3], 363, [1, blank], [1, colophon], [5, blank] pp. Twenty-six plates, consisting of six soft-ground etchings, printed by hand, and twenty lithographic drawings, made as studies for the etchings, printed on thin colored papers.Publisher‘s brown Bancroft buckram embossed in gold on front cover and spine from a design by LeRoy H. Appleton. Edges sprinkled brown. Pictorial bookplate of W.S. Adams engraved by Alexander Runciman on the front paste-down. The gilt on the spine very slightly dull otherwise a very fine copy in a very good publisher's original slipcase. With The Limited Editions Club Monthly letter Number 77, October 1935, loosely laid-in.When Limited Editions Club founder and publisher George Macy decided to commission Henri Matisse to illustrate his edition of James Joyce's Ulysses, he was boldly moving into difficult territory: the scandalous Ulyssess had been branded obscene and banned in the United States until 1933, just two years prior to this edition. When Macy initially approached Matisse, the artist confessed that he had not read the book; Macy provided him with a French translation. "The very next morning, M. Matisse reported that he had read the book, that he understood its eighteen episodes to be parodies of similar episodes in the Odyssey, that he would like to give point to this fact by making his illustrations actually illustrations of the original episodes in Homer!" (Macy).Macy's original plan was for Joyce to sign each of the 1500 copies along with Matisse. The author only signed 250. The reasons are apocryphal: His poor eyesight was strained by the effort; writer's cramp; or umbrage that Matisse had illustrated Homer's Odyssey rather than his.And who did Leopold Bloom travel with on his odyssey though Dublin (aside from Stephen Dedalus) on June 16th, 1904?"Sinbad the Sailor and Tinbad the Tailor and Jinbad the Jailer and Whinbad the Whaler and Ninbad the Nailer and Finbad the Failer and Binbad the Bailer and Pinbad the Pailer and Minbad the Mailer and Hinbad the Hailer and Rinbad the Railer and Dinbad the Kailer and Vinbad the Quailer and Linbad the Yailer and Xinbad the Phtailer."Whether signed by both or just Matisse, this edition of Joyce's modern classic remains amongst the most desirable and collectible illustrated books of the twentieth century and one of the few livres d'pientres of the pre-WWII era.Duthuit 235.
