        Going Southward

      [No place -Paris?: Frederic Prokosch]. 1935. First. First edition. Batik wrappers with silver foil printed label. 24mo. A little rubbed, near fine in unprinted and possibly original acetate dustwrapper. Out of a total edition of 33 copies, this copy is unnumbered and designated by the author by hand as a "Special Copy on Cherry 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. .

        Uber die Natur der Genmutation und der Genstruktur

      1935. <p>Timofeeff-Ressovsky, Nikolai Vladimirovich (1900-1981), K. G. Zimmer and Max Delbruck (1906-81). Ueber die Natur der Genmutation und der Genstruktur. Offprint from Nachr. Ges. Wiss. Gottingen, math-fis. Kl., Fachgr. 6, 1 (1935). 8vo. [189]-245pp. Berlin: Weidmannsche Buchhandlung, 1935. 253 x 178 mm. Original green printed wrappers. Stamp on upper wrapper but fine and unopened. </p> First Separate Edition. Garrison-Morton 254.1. One of the key conceptual papers in the early history of molecular biology. This paper represented the debut in genetics of the physicist Max Delbruck, a student and lifelong friend of Niels Bohr.</p><p> Delbruck turned from quantum physics to biology after being inspired by Niels Bohr&#39;s speculations, in his 1935 lecture "Light and life," about the application of quantum mechanics to problems in biology. Delbruck won a share of the Nobel Prize for physiology or medicine in 1969 for his discoveries concerning the replication mechanism and the genetic structure of viruses. </p><p> "Ueber die Natur der Genmutation und der Genstruktur" (often referred to as "the green paper" after the color of its wrappers, or the "Dreimanner" paper after the number of its authors) is divided into four sections. The first, by Timofeeff-Ressovsky, describes the mutagenic effects of x-rays and gamma rays on Drosophila melanogaster; the second part, by Zimmer, analyzes Timofeeff-Ressovsky&#39;s results theoretically. The third and most remarkable section, by Delbruck, puts forth a model of genetic mutation based on atomic physics that "shows the maturity, judgment and breadth of knowledge of someone who had been in the field for years . . . its carefully worded predictions have stood the test of time" (Perutz, p. 557). </p><p> The three authors of the paper "concluded that a mutation is a molecular rearrangement within a particular molecule, and the gene a union of atoms with which a mutation, in the sense of a molecular rearrangement or dissociation of bonds, can occur. The actual calculations of the size of the gene, deduced from calculations on the assumption of a spherical target, were not cogent, as Delbruck wryly admitted in his Nobel Prize lecture, but the entire approach to the problem of mutation and the gene adopted by the three collaborators was highly stimulating to other investigators" (DSB [suppl.]).</p><p> The Timofeeff-Zimmer-Delbruck paper provided much of the material for Erwin Schrodinger&#39;s book What is Life? (1944), a work that takes a "naive physicist&#39;s" approach to the problems of heredity and variation; it is often cited as having inspired Watson, Crick, Wilkins and others to focus their careers on the problems of molecular biology.</p><p> The relationship between Schrodinger&#39;s book and the Timofeeff-Zimmer-Delbruck paper is examined in detail in Max Perutz&#39;s 1987 paper "Physics and the riddle of life," which points out, among other things, that the two most important chapters in Schrodinger&#39;s book were paraphrased from "Ueber die Natur der Genmutation und der Genstruktur." </p><p>"In retrospect, the chief merit of What is Life? is its popularization of the Timofeeff, Zimmer and Delbruck paper that would otherwise have remained unknown outside the circles of geneticists and radiation biologists" (Perutz, p. 558). Perutz, "Physics and the riddle of life," Nature 326 (1987): 555-559. </p>

        The 39 Steps (Original Pressbook for the 1935 film)

      London: Gaumont. 1935. Original pressbook, American issue with American ads distributed in New York by the Gaumont Picture Corporation of America for the classic 1935 film, based on the 1915 novel by John Buchan. Card wrappers with a color lithograph design, saddle stitched, 12" x 18". 20pp. Faint horizontal fold as issued. Some minute nicking at the edges, pages slightly toned, but bright and very near fine. The 39 Steps is often considered Hitchcock&#39;s first masterpiece in a career noted for several. His adaptation of Buchan&#39;s novel proved (as usual) to be an improvement on the source material, adding two female characters and removing a couple of serious implausibilities. Another aspect of inestimable importance is that Hitchcock found in this film a theme that would become his favorite: an innocent man on the run, clever and resourceful, but surrounded by a conspiracy neither he nor the audience understands. A rare and blazingly beautiful artifact from one of the foundational espionage thrillers of the 20th Century. .

        Taps at Reveille

      New York: Charles Scribner&#39;s Sons, 1935 First edition, first printing, second state. Inscribed and signed by the author in black ink on front endpaper: "For Jim Hurley / adhesive tape expert / (&#39;May every tape- / writer ribbon prove / to be an adhesive / tape&#39; Dorothy Dix) / From his friend / F Scott Fitzgerald / Ashville 1936". Bound in the publisher&#39;s original dark blue cloth. A near fine copy, with light wear to the spine ends, light rubbing to the corners, a hint of spotting on the page edges and the front and back hinges. A very attractive copy. Fitzgerald inscribed this copy of Taps at Reveille to his friend James B. Hurley, a clerk at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, North Carolina, a resort hotel where the author resided from 1935 - 1936. Fitzgerald first traveled to Asheville on an extended visit due to personal health concerns about his lungs and stayed after he moved his wife Zelda to the Highland Hospital at Asheville. Hurley worked for Fitzgerald for nine months after applying to a classified advertisement for a typist. He typed Fitzgerald&#39;s manuscripts, manually manipulating his typewriter to create a triple-space between lines, Fitzgerald&#39;s preferred layout for editing. Additionally, Fitzgerald had Hurley assist with his finances, including contacting The Saturday Evening Post for payments when Fitzgerald&#39;s checking account was running low. When the two parted ways, Fitzgerald bequeathed Hurley with two manuscripts for his short stories and three signed novels, including this one. Bruccoli and Baughman, 124. Taps at Reveille is Fitzgerald&#39;s fourth collection of short stories and the last book published during his lifetime, one year after Tender is the Night. The collection contains eighteen stories, including: "Crazy Sunday," "A Woman with a Past," The Last of the Belles," and "Babylon Revisited." According to the publisher, Fitzgerald chose his best short stories for this collection, ones full of poignant and amusing stories of youth, gaiety, and adolescent error. "Babylon Revisited" is perhaps the best-known; it is a rueful contemplation of the Jazz Age in Paris and its follies (Edith H. Walton, New York Times).. Inscribed by Author. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Fine.

        LES CAHIERS

      Paris: Les Amis de Colette, 1935. No. 95 OF 175 COPIES, each volume SIGNED in the colophon n. Hardcover. A Very Rare Example of a Set this Large in Bonet Bindings. 311 x 241 mm (12 1/4 x 9 1/2"). Four volumes. No. 95 OF 175 COPIES, each volume SIGNED in the colophon. FANCIFUL GRAYISH-BROWN CRUSHED MOROCCO, INLAID AND DECORATED WITH GILT AND SILVER, BY PAUL BONET (stamp-signed on front turn-ins), covers with an all-over design comprising rows of alternating deeply impressed gilt circlets and inlaid morocco dots of turquoise, pink, sea green, or citron morocco (each volume with inlays matching the color of the bound-in original wrappers), upper cover of each volume with a different whimsical rectangle formed by looping and cresting silver calligraphic flourishes; flat spines with gilt titling, endpapers matching original wrappers of each volume, top edges gilt, other edges untrimmed. In the original morocco-trimmed, leather-lined chemises and matching slipcases. With 24 engravings, six each by Dignimont, Daragnès, Moreau, and Segonzac. TITLE PAGE OF VOLUME I with presentation inscription to Monsieur J. Ortiz-Linares SIGNED BY COLETTE, AND WITH A SMALL ORIGINAL INK SELF-PORTRAIT below the signature. For the binding: Bonet "Carnets" 320-23. Half title of volume III with light brown smudge to head edge, otherwise A CHOICE SET, the text clean, fresh, and bright, and THE BINDINGS LUSTROUS AND WITHOUT ANY SIGNS OF USE. This luxurious set, with its smooth paper, excellent printing, pleasing illustrations, and lovely bindings, embodies that French sophistication Colette portrayed so vividly in her writings. (Virginia Woolf complained that just reading Colette made her feel dowdy.) Proclaimed by Britannica "the outstanding French writer of the first half of the 20th century," Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette (1873-1954) published her first novel in 1900, and wrote prolifically for the next half century, amassing an oeuvre of more than 50 novels and scores of short stories and essays. Her writings are notable for their vivid sensual descriptions and for their indomitable female characters. A "New York Times" review observed, "Colette&#39;s courtesans don&#39;t die of tuberculosis. They guard their jewels and railway shares and, with good humor and a firm hand on the servants, gracefully grow old." Included in our four volumes are the author&#39;s most famous novel, "Chéri," its proto-text "Clouk," "Notes Marocaines," "La Decapitée," "En tournée," "Music-Hall," and "Portraits et Paysages." Colette was the first woman to be elected to the Académie Goncourt and the first to serve as its president. Her death did not put an end to her pioneering achievements: she was the first woman in France to be given a state funeral. A French citizen of Belgian origin, the bookbinder Paul Bonet (1889-1971) had been an electrician&#39;s apprentice and then a designer of women&#39;s dresses, but he was also a bibliophile, and one who was so disappointed by the quality of bookbinding available for his collection that he began to bind books himself. He became the leading bookbinder in France, creating unique and imaginative works of art in a modern idiom, and having a profound influence on the course of bookbinding, particularly on the continent. In 1971, the prestigious Prix Paul Bonet for outstanding bookbinding was instituted by the Centro del Bel Libro in Ascona, Switzerland, in his honor. At least as important as the books bound with his own hands are the designs he created for bindings executed by others. In "Carnets," Bonet describes the present bindings as "simple and elegant," and notes that his designs were executed by René Desmules and gilded by "Jeanne." Bonet almost never did full bindings on sets as large as the present one: ABPC does not list a single such item since at least 1975. Given the inscription and accompanying artwork here, these volumes could well have been commissioned by original owner Jorge Ortiz-Linares, Bolivian ambassador to France, a celebrated collector of French literature, the father of Jaime Ortiz-Patiño (famous in golf and bridge circles), and one of the richest men in the world at the time.

FANCIFUL GRAYISH-BROWN CRUSHED MOROCCO, INLAID AND DECORATED WITH GILT AND SILVER, BY PAUL BONET (stamp-signed on front turn-ins), covers with an all-over design comprising rows of alternating deeply impressed gilt circlets and inlaid morocco dots of turquoise, pink, sea green, or citron morocco (each volume with inlays matching the color of the bound-in original wrappers), upper cover of each volume with a different whimsical rectangle formed by looping and cresting silver calligraphic flourishes; flat spines with gilt titling, endpapers matching original wrappers of each volume, top edges gilt, other edges untrimmed.

For the binding: Bonet "Carnets" 320-23. Half title of volume III with light brown smudge to head edge, otherwise A CHOICE SET, the text clean, fresh, and bright, and THE BINDINGS LUSTROUS AND WITHOUT ANY SIGNS OF USE. This luxurious set, with its smooth paper, excellent printing, pleasing illustrations, and lovely bindings, embodies that French sophistication Colette portrayed so vividly in her writings. (Virginia Woolf complained that just reading Colette made her feel dowdy.) Proclaimed by Britannica "the outstanding French writer of the first half of the 20th century," Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette (1873-1954) published her first novel in 1900, and wrote prolifically for the next half century, amassing an oeuvre of more than 50 novels and scores of short stories and essays. Her writings are notable for their vivid sensual descriptions and for their indomitable female characters. A "New York Times" review observed, "Colette&#39;s courtesans don&#39;t die of tuberculosis. They guard their jewels and railway shares and, with good humor and a firm hand on the servants, gracefully grow old." Included in our four volumes are the author&#39;s most famous novel, "Chéri," its proto-text "Clouk," "Notes Marocaines," "La Decapitée," "En tournée," "Music-Hall," and "Portraits et Paysages." Colette was the first woman to be elected to the Académie Goncourt and the first to serve as its president. Her death did not put an end to her pioneering achievements: she was the first woman in France to be given a state funeral. A French citizen of Belgian origin, the bookbinder Paul Bonet (1889-1971) had been an electrician&#39;s apprentice and then a designer of women&#39;s dresses, but he was also a bibliophile, and one who was so disappointed by the quality of bookbinding available for his collection that he began to bind books himself. He became the leading bookbinder in France, creating unique and imaginative works of art in a modern idiom, and having a profound influence on the course of bookbinding, particularly on the continent. In 1971, the prestigious Prix Paul Bonet for outstanding bookbinding was instituted by the Centro del Bel Libro in Ascona, Switzerland, in his honor. At least as important as the books bound with his own hands are the designs he created for bindings executed by others. In "Carnets," Bonet describes the present bindings as "simple and elegant," and notes that his designs were executed by René Desmules and gilded by "Jeanne." Bonet almost never did full bindings on sets as large as the present one: ABPC does not list a single such item since at least 1975. Given the inscription and accompanying artwork here, these volumes could well have been commissioned by original owner Jorge Ortiz-Linares, Bolivian ambassador to France, a celebrated collector of French literature, the father of Jaime Ortiz-Patiño (famous in golf and bridge circles), and one of the richest men in the world at the time.

        Typed and signed letter sent to the editors of Bonniers Literary Magazine (Bonniers litterära magasin).

      - Baden, 1935. Undated, but the author states that he is temporarily staying at the Hotel Verenahof in Baden, Switzerland, and will be back in Montagnola on the 12th of December. [27,5x18,5 cm]. 1 page. Envelope with typed address, postmarked in Zürich December 4, 1935. With a few manual corrections by the author. Well preserved. From the library of Georg Svensson, who was editor-in-chief of the magazine from 1932-49. Hesse was hired in March 1935 to write about the German literature on a regular basis. The collaboration was, however, short lived; Hesse's last contribution was published in the September issue of 1936. In this letter he explains why he wishes to resign from his post, and he refers to an article by Will Vesper &#150; who was the German correspondent for the magazine before Hesse &#150; in "Die neue Literatur", in which he is accused of treason for having written in a positive way on emigrants, communists and Jews. Hesse also states that he is accused by the emigrants for being secretly connected with the Third Reich, and that the accusations from both sides have reached a certain ferocity, and are made with such hatred, that there is no point in replying to them.
