Collier, John
[Washington, D. C. ]: N. P., 1936. 10½" x 8". Photomechanically reproduced typescript. 14 loose leaves printed rectos only. Very good minus: creases from folding, moderate wear, a bit dust soiled. An early report on the purpose and progress of the Indian Reorganization Act of 1934 ("IRA"). It was written by John Collier, the Commissioner for the Bureau of Indian Affairs from 1933-1945 and the founder of the American Indian Defense Association which fought to protect Native Americans' religious freedom and tribal lands. He was the prime mover behind the IRA. The IRA's major goal was to reverse the government's approach of assimilation of Native Americans into American society as well as its treatment of their lands. It sought to strengthen tribes and help them preserve their traditions and culture. This paper was written approximately 18 months after the effective date of the act and appears to be an attempt by Collier to further explain its purpose and silence critics. The paper was submitted to the House Appropriations Committee in December 1935. Collier started by saying the IRA was not a radical policy but "a simple principle of treating the Indians as normal human beings capable of working out a normal adjustment to and a satisfying life within the framework of American civilization, yet maintaining the best of their own culture and racial idiosyncrasies. " He argued that the former policy was an extremist and militaristic approach that grew out of the Indian Wars, and that it "thrust the Indians into an economic, spiritual, and social no-man's land. " He discussed var … [Click Below for Full Description]

Leaf, Munro (illustrated by Robert Lawson)
New York: The Viking Press, 1936. First edition. Near Fine/Very Good. First issue, with jacket price clipped on front flap but without the "second printing" notation and $1.00 price present on rear flap. Near Fine book with just a touch of sunning to the upper boards. Small ownership signature and drawing to the verso of the front endpaper, else unmarked and clean. VG jacket sunned on the spine; offsetting to the upper rear panel, with closed tears along the upper edge and a .75 inch loss to the lower rear edge. In all, a much nicer than usual copy of a difficult to find children's book. Ferdinand, a young, peaceful bull, just wants to sit beneath his favorite cork tree and smell the flowers. His mother worries that he's lonely because all the other young bulls like to run around, butt heads, and roughhouse together. When a committee arrives to search for the next bull for the bull fights in Madrid, a surprising turn of events sees Ferdinand on his way to Madrid. But in the bull-ring Ferdinand stays true to himself no matter how they try to provoke him. Published at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War and earning widespread popularity during the destruction and horrors of World War II, The Story of Ferdinand has been understood as an allegory of pacifism amid a world at war. An admired children's book that can be both a celebration of marching to the beat of your own drummer as well as a meditation on pacifism. Near Fine in Very Good dust jacket.

POWELL, Dawn
Farrar & Rinehart, New York, 1936. First edition. A couple of pages a little roughly opened with corresponding small tears, thus near fine in fine dustwrapper with a very short tear. By consensus the best novel on New York's bohemian life by this satirical, proto-feminist novelist who has recently been rediscovered. Gore Vidal, whose critical essay helped restore her fame, called her a better satirist than Twain and said she was "our best comic novelist." Ernest Hemingway once told her she was his "favorite living novelist" - although she was not averse to poking fun at Hemingway himself, which she did in her novel, *The Wicked Pavilion*. Novelist Lisa Zeidner, in a review of the Tim Page biography of Powell in *The New York Times Book Review*, said that "she is wittier than Dorothy Parker, dissects the rich better than F. Scott Fitzgerald, is more plaintive than Willa Cather in her evocation of the heartland and has a more supple control of satirical voice than Evelyn Waugh, the writer to whom she's most often compared." Powell was an archetypal free spirit, living much of her life in Greenwich Village, taking - and flaunting - lovers frequently although she was married, and mercilessly skewering the postures and foibles of an array of New York types, from bohemian artists to wealthy tycoons. Probably the nicest copy we've seen of an exceptionally scarce book. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]

Constable, London, 1936. First English edition. Boards a bit soiled, else a nice, very good or better copy in poor dustwrapper with large chips missing from the front and back panels. Inscribed by the author: "To Genevieve Norwood with best wishes, Dawn Powell." By consensus the best novel on New York's bohemian life by this satirical, proto-feminist novelist who has only fairly recently been rediscovered. Gore Vidal, whose critical essay helped restore her fame, called her a better satirist than Twain and said she was "our best comic novelist," and Ernest Hemingway once told her she was his "favorite living novelist" - although she was not averse to poking fun at Hemingway himself, which she did in her novel, *The Wicked Pavilion*.

London: Nonesuch Press, 1936. Folio. Spine very slightly faded, dustwrapper slightly frayed, and with a 95mm tear at the flap edge of the lower cover panel, but a nice copy. Edition limited to 750 numbered copies, this copy with the (Will Carter) Yarrow book-label of Charles Ballantyne and the (Leo Wyatt) bookplate of Alan Bell; loosely inserted an autograph letter signed from Ballantyne to Bell, 2pp. 8vo, [Yarrow], 17 April 1979, listing the 10 books Ballantyne is bequeathing to him - The Nonesuch Century being at the head of the list. A retrospective of the Nonesuch Press's virtuosity, with illustrative text and title-pages reset in the original types, and a bravura set of inserts, again newly minted. "As a piece of typographical design," writes John Dreyfus, "The Nonesuch Century was highly original and extremely successful. Francis [Meynell] realized that reproductions of finely printed pages cannot convey either the feel of a carefully chosen paper or the quality of the impression originally made upon it by a skilful printer.

KEYNES John Maynard
1936. First edition, first printing. 8vo (220 x 145mm). [2], xii, 403, [1] pp. Original dark blue cloth, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, ruling continued to boards in blind (spine very slightly sunned, otherwise an excellent copy). London, Macmillan and Co., Limited. Keynes' greatest work and surely the most influential text of twentieth-century economics. Prompted by the world wide-slump following 1929, Keynes set upon an ?explanation of, and new methods for controlling, the vagaries of the trade-cycle. First in A Treatise on Money, 1930, and later in his General Theory, he subjected the definitions and theories of the classical school of economists to a penetrating scrutiny and found seriously inadequate and inaccurate. . [Keynes'] programme for national and international official monetary policies [was based on the premise that the] national budget, over and above its function of providing a national income, should be used as a major instrument in planning the national economy. The regulation of the trade-cycle - that is to say the control of booms and slumps, the level of employment, the wage-scale and the flow of investment - must be the responsibility of governments. Lost equilibrium in a national economy could and should be restored by official action and abandoned to laisser faire? (PMM). The grip of Keynesian economics took hold almost immediately, informing aspects of Roosevelt's 'New Deal', the formation of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, as well as many of the policies of the post-war British Labour government.

Doughty, Charles M, With An Introduction by Lawrence, T.E
Jonathan Cape, London, 1936. First edition of this edition of this seminal work. Quarto, 2 volumes. Near fine in near fine dust jackets, frontispiece in first volume, both profusely illustrated with maps, plans, and collotype plates, some folding, and including large folding maps at the inside of the rear covers of both volumes. With an introduction by T.E. Lawrence. Near fine in very good dust jackets. "No one has looked so narrowly at the Arab and the life of Arabia as Doughty, and no one has painted them in literature with a touch so sensitive and sure. And not only Bedawin life of whose hardships he suffered to the last wandering as one poorer than the poorest, but also the life of the oasis towns of the Nejd. One can do Doughty's pages no justice by quotation. His book belongs to that rare and supreme class in which the author speaks not for himself, but for all who might find themselves in like case" (Hogarth). [Attributes: First Edition]

Carnegie, Dale
Simon & Schuster, New York, 1936. Early printing of one of the best-selling books of all time. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Dale Carnegie on the front free endpaper. Near fine in a very good dust jacket. This grandfather of all people-skills books was first published in 1937. It was an overnight hit, eventually selling 15 million copies. How to Win Friends and Influence People is just as useful today as it was when it was first published, because Dale Carnegie had an understanding of human nature that will never be outdated. Financial success, Carnegie believed, is due 15 percent to professional knowledge and 85 percent to "the ability to express ideas, to assume leadership, and to arouse enthusiasm among people." He teaches these skills through underlying principles of dealing with people so that they feel important and appreciated. He also emphasizes fundamental techniques for handling people without making them feel manipulated. Carnegie says you can make someone want to do what you want them to by seeing the situation from the other person's point of view and "arousing in the other person an eager want." You learn how to make people like you, win people over to your way of thinking, and change people without causing offense or arousing resentment. For instance, "let the other person feel that the idea is his or hers," and "talk about your own mistakes before criticizing the other person."

Hoover, J. Edgar; Clyde Tolson, William J. Miller, Charles Ford; Lowell Thomas (narrator); Charles E. Ford (director, producer, screenwriter)
Universal City, CA: Universal Pictures, 1936. Vintage sepia toned double weight photograph from the filming of the 1936 Universal Studios newsreel "You Can't Get Away With It." Shot in the office of J. Edgar Hoover, Director of the FBI, on October 14, 1936, the photo shows Hoover filming his Assistant Director Clyde Tolson, as Universal Newsreel reps Charles Ford and William J. Miller look on. The newsreel illustrates the inner workings of the FBI including types of scientific methods, like fingerprinting and forensic examination, utilized to fight organized crime. Hoover's FBI policies highly modernized the work of criminal investigation, though his dogged investigation of homosexuals, communists, civil rights leaders, and other political radicals later subjected him to sharp criticism. Though the photo depicts Hoover behind the camera filming Clyde Tolson, no such shot appears in the newsreel, an interesting implication in the ongoing debate as to the intimate nature of the relationship between the two men. Image 7 x 9 inchescm on 11 x 14 inch off-white paper. About Fine condition.

Social Security Board, Washington, D.C, 1936. Broadside. 12" x 18". Text printed in bold with header underlined. Uniform toning on the paper else very near fine. The broadside announces the terms of compliance with the Social Security Act signed by President Franklin W. Roosevelt on August 14, 1935, and reminds workers that "This is NOT a voluntary plan. Your employer MUST make this deduction." This broadside appears to be the first public announcement of the Social Security Act, a fundamental piece of Roosevelt's New Deal legislation. This was the first time wages were deducted, as provided by the act. The act was designed to "provide for the general welfare by establishing a system of Federal old-age benefits, and by enabling the several States to make more adequate provision for aged persons, blind persons, dependent and crippled children, maternal and child welfare, public health, and the administration of their unemployment compensation laws." Very scarce. *OCLC* locates only three copies of a much smaller issue, presumably a flyer, and none of this larger version. [Attributes: First Edition]

Disillusioned with the country and her work, she was only too glad to leave at the end of the school term." - dust jacket.
