        The Green Corn Rebellion

      New York: Vanguard Press. (1935). First. First edition. Two modest stamps from a Brooklyn camera shop on the front pastedown, else fine in an attractive, very good dustwrapper with a thin triangular chip on the spine removing some of the lettering from the title, and some other modest wear at the extremities. The author's first book, an antiwar novel based on the abortive 1917 rebellion (called the Green Corn Rebellion in the War Department archives) of Oklahoma farmers who plotted to rebel against the draft and America's entrance into the First World War, and to march on Washington and form a cooperative commonwealth, and the tragic consequences to those who participated in it. Cunningham was a major influence on his protege and friend at the Oklahoma Writer's Project, Jim Thompson. Thompson's admiration for this novel and friendship with Cunningham precipitated his being hired at the Project, where he succeeded Cunningham as Director. Cunningham was also the head of the Communist Party in Oklahoma during some of the 1930s, and according to one source Cunningham arranged for Jim Thompson to join the local chapter so that Thompson could get a loan from the cell and buy a car in which to travel from Oklahoma to California. Cunningham's style, influence, and some of the episodes from this novel are reflected in Thompson's later writing. This novel was cited by Walter B. Rideout in his definitive study, The Radical Novel in the United States. All copies of The Green Corn Rebellion are exceptionally uncommon, and in jacket they are flat out rare. .

      (No place -Paris?: Frederic Prokosch). 1935. First. First edition. Gold foil wrappers with yellow printed label. 24mo. Fine. Out of a total edition of 33 copies, this copy is unnumbered and designated by the author by hand as a "Special Copy on Orange Vellum" paper. Signed twice by the author.

Additionally he reprinted some of the books between 1978-1980, but the provenance of this book, and the owner's notes that accompany the book, indicate that it was obtained in the 1950s. His reputation has suffered despite the fact that his books were both a critical and popular success at the time of publication. Rare. Of the 33 copies, OCLC locates four copies in institutions. .

        Ladies in the Parlor

      New York: Greenberg: Publisher. Near Fine in Very Good+ dj. (c.1935). 2nd printing. Hardcover. [very nice copy, tight and clean with minimal shelfwear; jacket shows light rubbing/soiling, one shallow chip at bottom of front panel, minor wear at base of spine, small sticker-shadow and a couple of tiny stains at upper right-hand corner of front panel, slight spine fade]. Tully's novel of a small-town girl who escapes small-town poverty (and various abusive and sexually aggressive men) by going to work for Madame Rosenbloom in her high-class (and politically well-connected) Chicago brothel. It's been stated that the book's scarcity is due to its having been "banned" -- it was declared obscene by a New York court, which fined the publisher $50 -- which makes it a bit of a surprise to see "Second Printing" stated at the top of the front jacket flap. (The book itself bears no edition statement.) .

        HOSANNA! The Most Controversial Novel of Our Time

      London, Denis Archer, 1935 First edition: Very good blue cloth boards with red title to spine, publisher's small red motif of an archer to the front cover in red, a hint of rubbing along hinge but generally smart and clean, 8 vo., 7.5 x 5 inches approx.., very good dust jacket being light beige printed in maroon, single spray of greenery to front cover, publisher's advertising to back cover, mild soiling to pale background,some minor chipping and rubbing to extremities, presented to best advantage in a clear plastic sleeve, pagination 287 pages, followed by publisher's advertisements, not clipped, no inscriptions, a little 'dusty' to top of closed edge. On the front cover the book is described as 'The Most Controversial Novel of Our Time.' The title page describes the novel as 'The Remarkable Novel by Bernard Newman.' The novel tackles the controversial hypothesis of what might have happened if Jesus had consented to be made King of the Jews. '"When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him king ---" Suppose they had !' Imagine the controversial nature of this novel released in the 1930s. Try to find other copies of this novel and you will meet a blank wall. There are a handful of copies in major libraries but nothing that is easy to find on the open market. The question has to be considered did the publisher find the book too hot to handle? Today we are more accustomed to fictitious works that try to shatter the accepted traditions of Christianity. One example is the Da Vinci Code, and look at the future that these fictional interpretations have caused! Very little can be found about this work but strangely it seems to have been reviewed in a Magazine called The Fantast published in England by C.S.Youd during the first couple of years of World War II. http://www.efanzines.com/AOY/AOY-09.htm; This publication does make reference to this book which puts the Life of Christ into a 'What if' context. Charles Rowlands reviewed this little-known book, which shows what might have happened if Christ had taken the wrong course and turned his powers to military and political purposes. In "Hosanna", Christ's personality leads the Jews to drive the Romans from the land for a time, but the Romans re-conquer Jerusalem, Christ is crucified - and centuries later, the world has been converted to the Mohammedan religion.' Bernard Newman wrote crime fiction such as The Death of a Harlot, first edition 1934. He also wrote under the pseudonym Don Betteridge. Thus Hosanna! pre-dates his first Crime Fiction novel. *EXTRAORDINARY AND CONTROVERSIAL BOOK* Seldom seen on the open market. Without doubt there will be those who have sought this rare text for many years. An absolute treasure for collectors of controversial religious texts, 'black listed' novels and extremely rare first editions Catalogs: Contraversial books, Bernard Newman, Religion, Fiction, Jesus King of the Jews, Modern First Editions

In the letter BHLH explains that he hopes that Russell has received the copy that he had asked Yale to send, and asks whether he has managed to trace his articles on Lee. On the rear free is a letter from Norman V. Donaldson, secretary to, and later managing director of the Yale University Press, sending the present volume and explaining that; "We published the American edition of this work last autumn, and although it is somewhat technical, the demand for it from the general public has necessitated our doing a second printing." Based on his Trinity College, Cambridge, Lees Knowles Lectures for 1932-33,"The Movement of Military Thought from the Eighteenth to the Twentieth Century, and its influence on European History." The New York Times review placed this title on "the never overcrowded shelf of sharply intelligent, adult, thoroughly interesting reading." Dedicated "To 'T.E.' [Lawrence] who trod this road before 1914." A wonderful copy of this extremely hard to find title.
