        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.; 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

        The Ghost of Napoleon

      New Haven: Yale University Press,, 1935. Octavo. Original blue cloth, paper label to the spine. With the pictorial dust jacket. Rear hinge very slightly cracked, else a superb copy in an almost untouched jacket. Second impression of the US first edition, some six months after the first, first published in the UK by Faber & Faber in 1933. This copy with a 1p typed letter signed from Liddell Hart to the journalist and Western historian Don Russell, corner-mounted on the front free endpaper. 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.

        Going Southward

      Frederic Prokosch), (No place -Paris? 1935 - First edition. Marbled paper wrappers with silver foil 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 Blue Vellum" paper. Signed by the author. A brief poem, one of the author's rare "butterfly books". Prokosch was an American novelist of remarkable promise who later fell under a cloud for manufacturing some spurious "rare first editions", which he did while experimenting with the handpress he used to manufacture the butterfly books. 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.

Interessante, häufig in die dritte Person überwechselnde Briefe an seine Frau Thea über seine Arbeit, sein Werk und Leben: "Sein letztes Briefi hat sie wieder einmal gänzlich mißverstanden. Er hat ihr geschildert, wie er sich sorgfältig von allen Menschen absperrt, um seine längst fällige und dringende Romanarbeit endlich vollenden zu können; sie aber versteht: er arbeitet nur, um sich von den Menschen abzuschließen!

I. 1935). - "Sein heutiger Tagesablauf: 1/2 7-8h früh: Ausräumen der Küche mit der Tante Mizzi für den Maler; | 8h-9h Toilette, Briefe; | 10h-2h Kostümprobe Oper 'Bettler Namenlos' (Sehr heikel!) | 3h-5h30 wichtige Besprechung [.], Café Passoni. | 6h30-11h45min Faust! | 11h45-12h15 Heimweg. | Die Proleten kämpfen um ihren Achtstundentag.

XI. 1932). - "Kluge, geistvolle Leser [.] haben längst schon entdeckt, daß in meinen Büchern vielleicht mehr Lebensweisheit enthalten ist als im 'Zauberberg', 'Sergeant Grischa' und ähnlichen jüdischen Erzeugnissen, nur nicht so protzenhaft-aufdringlich, sondern feinschmeckerisch-diskret, zwischen den Zeilen [.] Alle meine Arbeiten aber dienen einer bestimmten Idee, und [.] aufmerksame Leser haben diese Grundideen kristallklar aus der - scheinbar - 'leichten' Handlung herauszuschälen verstanden [.]". - Rudolf von Eichthal - während des Ersten Weltkriegs Oberst und Generalstabschef in Südtirol, Rußland und auf dem Balkan - war nach Ende des Krieges als Schriftsteller und Musiker tätig. Ab 1920 Mitglied der Staatsoper und des Burgtheaters, wurde Eichthal auch durch zahlreiche Romane und Erzählungen bekannt, insbesondere durch den Roman "Der Kreuzberg" (1928), in dem er das Soldatenleben in der k. u. k.

        The Green Shadow

      Hartney Press, New York 1935 - First edition. Fine in a lightly worn, near fine and attractive dustwrapper designed by Charles B. Gilbert with a few short tears and some rubbing. The jacket has an unusual design with the tops and bottoms of the flaps extended, folded inward and glued (as issued) to make pockets that hold the jacket on. Very hardboiled private eye novel. The Chicago-born author was a newspaper journalist who wrote a column on rackets and racketeering, and later became a successful screenwriter. Among his produced scripts were *The Great John L., The Angel and the Bad Man, Sands of Iwo Jima, Flying Leathernecks, Hondo, The Alamo*, and *Donovan's Reef*. This particular novel was the basis for the fast-paced and very entertaining 1936 Charles Vidor film *Muss 'em Up*, with Preston Foster as detective "Tip" O'Neil. See this book in 3D on our site.

      - Wien, 1.I.1935, 3 Seiten kl.-4°, mit eigenhändig adressiertem Umschlag. Julius Wagner Ritter von Jauregg (1857-1940), österreichischer Psychiater und Neurologe, Nobelpreisträger. - Schöner Brief an eine befreundete Kollegin, Frau Dr. Rieder in Wien, bei der er sich entschuldigt, dass er sich so spät für ihr Weihnachtsgeschenk bedankt. Der Grund dafür liege in einem dem Psychiater unzugänglichen Leiden: der Briefangst. - - ". Dieses alte Uebel ist kein körperliches, obwohl ich mit körperlichen Uebeln reichlich versehen bin, sondern es ist ein geistiges, und, da es den Psychiater selbst betrifft, wahrscheinlich durch einen Psychiater nicht zu heilen. Es ist das die Epistolopathia paradoxa, die mir schon viel Verdruss bereitet hat. Sie stellt sich besonders gerne dann ein, wenn ich durch eine Arbeit sehr intensiv in Anspruch genommen bin. Momentan ist es der Johann Peter Frank, von dem ich bis vor Kurzem äusserst wenig wusste und über den ich im Mai eine grosse Rede halten soll. Ich muss Ihnen aber beichten, dass der Johann Peter Frank etwa zu einer Ausrede brauchbar ist; zu einer Begründung nicht. Denn in Wirklichkeit ist schon noch so viel Zeit vorhanden, um einer Freundin ein paar freundliche Zeilen schreiben zu können. Zum Schluss geschieht es ja doch. Aber das alte Uebel! - - . in Gumpoldskirchen habe ich Sie allerdings bei meinen letzten Ausflügen ( Melker Keller) vermisst. Es ist übrigens jetzt, seitdem die Bundesbahn den Leuten den Heurigen zahlt, dort so voll, dass man kaum unterkommt ." [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Hits and Misses

      The Derrydale Press, New York 1935 - This book is an anomaly. We here at Kaleidoscope Books are stumped as to this book's mysteries, but will do the best we can do describe this unique volume. This book is only a partial book but is not rebound in any capacity. There are only a few pages of the original text by Paul Brown, followed by mostly blank pages. We say mostly because there are over a dozen hand drawn and signed illustrations by a certain Jack Ferris. Who this Jack R. Ferris is we are not entirely sure, but his drawings are superb. Whoever gave him this book inscribed it in ink dated August 23, 1941. Besides that, this book has some light rubbling along the boards, some light extremity wear, and some faint ink transfer across from the title page. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [Paths of Glory] An Untitled Novel by Humphrey Cobb

      New York: Viking Press. 1935. First. Uncorrected proof of Paths of Glory sent to booksellers before it received a title, and offering $50 to whoever submitted the best title. Printed wrappers. A small chip to one corner of the front wrap, split at the bottom of the front wrap, else a very good or better copy of this fragile and uncommon format. One of the great antiwar novels, based on real incidents during WWI. The film rights were purchased two decades later by Kirk Douglas, who hired the relatively unknown Stanley Kubrick to direct. Starring Douglas and Adolphe Menjou and scripted by Kubrick, Jim Thompson, and Calder Willingham, the film was a technical and critical triumph and ranks with All Quiet on the Western Front as perhaps the greatest antiwar film. .

        Paths of Glory

      The Viking Press 1935 - New York: The Viking Press, 1935. 265 p. Advance uncorrected proof, untitled. First edition, first printing. Very Good condition. Originally issued in wraps, later rebound (apparently by former owner) in green cloth with gilt lettering at an unknown date. Clean pages. First page (the original cover) age-toned, foxed, and a bit soiled. Former owner's name on front paste down. A bit of light foxing to edges. At this novel's completion, the author still didn't have a suitable title, so the publisher made the title selection a contest with a $50 reward for the winner. Paths of Glory would be the author's only book, later finding fame with Stanley Kubrick's film adaption. An unusual proof. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        [Paths of Glory] An Untitled Novel by Humphrey Cobb

      New York: Viking Press. 1935. First. Uncorrected proof of Paths of Glory sent to booksellers before it received a title, and offering $50 to whoever submitted the best title. Printed wrappers. A small chip to one corner of the front wrap, split at the bottom of the front wrap, else a very good or better copy of this fragile and uncommon format. One of the great antiwar novels, based on real incidents during WWI. The film rights were purchased two decades later by Kirk Douglas, who hired the relatively unknown Stanley Kubrick to direct. Starring Douglas and Adolphe Menjou and scripted by Kubrick, Jim Thompson, and Calder Willingham, the film was a technical and critical triumph and ranks with All Quiet on the Western Front as perhaps the greatest antiwar film. .

        Mars Mountain

      1935. Book. Very Good. No Binding. Original pen and ink drawing on paper for the cover art (and frontispiece) for the first edition of MARS MOUNTAIN by Eugene George Key. The work is titled "Dorothy Marie Nelson." MARS MOUNTAIN is considered to be the first science fiction specialty press book. Published by Fantasy Pubs. in Everett, Pennsylvania, in 1935. Chalker & Owings state on page 165 of THE SCIENCE-FANTASY PUBLISHERS: "...right here, that everything starts -- the first attempt by any publisher anywhere to produce commercially viable publications devoted exclusively to fantasy and science fiction." So this is the original cover art for the first science fiction specialty press book. Science fiction art does not get any more historically important than this. The work shows a few creases and some soiling otherwise very good, in a fine black wooden frame with a silver bead and a white linen mat with a black fillet, under UV protective glass. Image size: 6 3/4 inches x 7 3/4 inches. Frame size: 18 1/4 inches x 19 1/4 inches..
