        The Paradise of Fools. Being an Account by a Member of the Party, of the Expedition which covered 6,300 miles of the Libyan Desert by Motor-car in 1935.

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1936 - Octavo. Original blue cloth, title gilt to spine, scorpion device gilt to the front board. With the striking pictorial dust jacket. A little chafed head and tail of the spine, corners a touch bumped, free endpapers differentially browned, minor production flaw at the head of the rear hinge, else very good in slightly rubbed jacket, foxed on the flaps, with some slightly amateurish restoration at the head of the spine, but pictorially and textually complete. Bookplate of Charles Edward Rusbridge, who served in Libya with the RAOC during World War II, to front pastedown. Frontispiece and 22 other plates, folding coloured map at the rear. First edition of this lively and uncommon account of an expedition described in Fliegel Jezerniczky's on-line Libyan Desert bibliography as "an extraordinary journey", during which a party led by Mason and W. B. Kennedy Shaw traversed "virtually all major parts of the Libyan desert. They started from Kharga, reaching the Gilf Kebir via Abu Ballas, making the first crossing of the dune belt in the 'Gap' to enter Wadi Hamra, discovering two major wadis transversing the southern Gilf (and locating a cave with rock paintings on the col between them), then continuing via Selima and Erdi to El Fasher (where they met Almásy and party). On the northbound leg they traversed the southern Libyan Desert, continuing to Uweinat, passing the western side of the Gilf, then traversing the Great Sand Sea to reach Siwa". The cave at Mogharet el Kantara containing the paintings of cattle and a homestead scene, the only known site containing rock art in the south-eastern portion of the Gilf Kebir, is now known as Shaw's Cave. Shaw published his findings in the Geographical Journal ("An Expedition in the Southern Lybian Desert", vol. 87, 1936) and Antiquity ("Rock Paintings in the Lybian Desert", vol. 10, 1936). During the Second World War Shaw went on to become a founder member of the Long Range Desert Group, whose scorpion badge was very similar to that used here on the front board. Mason, who had previously spent time fur-trapping in Canada, and sparring with Jack Sharkey, was recruited to naval intelligence by Ian Fleming, lending a number of characteristics – physical and temperamental – and terrific tales to the composite who became James Bond.

        FOUR DAYS WAR ...

      London: Robert Hale & Company,. [1936]. original black cloth, spine panel stamped in gold, top edge stained yellow.. A bright, nearly fine copy in very good pictorial dust jacket. (designed by Ward Stone) with shelf wear at tail of spine panel and. corner tips, shallow chip from head of spine panel, some wrinkling at. lower front corner tip, and dust soiling to spine and rear panels.. Nevertheless a nice example of this rare jacket. Formerly science. fiction author / editor / publisher Donald A. Wollheim's copy with. his name stamped in ink on rear free endpaper. (#149808). First edition. Sequel to PRELUDE IN PRAGUE: A STORY OF THE WAR OF 1938 (1935). "PRELUDE IN PRAGUE ends with the delivery of a German ultimatum to Britain, and its sequel ... takes up the story with its rejection. The book goes on to describe the devastation of Britain by bombers which carry not only explosives but chemical and biological weapons. The war becomes a world war -- and eventually takes on the semblance of a Holy War, with the Christian nations (led by America) arrayed against the forces of a new paganism, symbolized by Germany's new military dictator, Prince von Teufel. Fowler Wright had intended (in 1933) to call his future war story THE SPLENDID CURSE, and there are fragments of dialogue in FOUR DAYS WAR which concentrate on the degeneracy of contemporary society and the possibility of its corruption being cleansed by the war. The horror of the vision of destruction, though, overwhelms this cynical thread of argument, and it has quite disappeared by the time the story extends into the third volume of the trilogy, MEGIDDO'S RIDGE (1937)." - Stableford, Scientific Romance in Britain 1890-1950, pp. 195-96.

        Legion Condor Erinnerungs-Photographienalbum mit über 750 Original-Photographien des Unteroffiziers Willy Heyn. Legion Condor photograph album with more than 750 original photographs by Willy Heyn.

      Spanien, 1936. - Quer Folio (Format ca. 35x59,5 cm), Halblederband der Zeit mit Schraubenbindung und aufgesetzem silberfarbenem Abzeichen, mit über 750 Original-Photographien, einmontierte Reklamezettel, Briefe und Flugzettel sowie Briefmarken auf ca. 65 Kartontafelblättern. Riesiges Photoalbum des Unteroffiziers Willy Heyn (ev. aus Schleissheim) das dessen Einsatz für die Legion Condor im Spanischen Bürgerkrieg dokumentiert. Auf über 750 mittelformatigen (ca. 9x12 cm) Original-Photographien, aufgenommen mit einer Leica, beginnt das Album mit der geheimen Abreise auf dem Motorschiff St. Louis (später durch die dramatischen Irrfahrt ausgewiesener deutscher Juden berühmt-berüchtigt geworden) in Hamburg, bei der die "Passagiere" zur Erkennung untereinander gelbrote Armbinden tragen mußten. Der Legion Condor-Einsatz war hochgeheim und wurde bis 1939 von den Deutschen verleugnet, auch dieser Einheit, die davon ausging bei einer Sonderübung auf Rügen teilzunehmen, wurde erst auf Hoher See verkündet, dass sie die ersten Freiwilligen seien, die in Spanien auf Seiten Francos zum Einsatz kommen sollten (mit sehr ausführlichem, gut lesbarem handschriftlichem Einleitungstext über die Abfahrt von Willy Heyn). Es folgen Aufnahmen von der Anlandung in Cadiz und von verschiedenen Kriegsschauplätzen (an der Nordfront, bei Malaga, Burgos, Bilbao etc.), militärische Aufnahmen mit Kriegsschäden und Truppenteilen der Franco-Anhänger (beispielsweise die berüchtigten marokkanischen Legionäre, die Moros, italienische Einheiten und eben auch von deutschen Legion Condor-Angehörigen). Neben dem Flugplatz Tablada bei Sevilla, einer der ersten wichtigen Stützpunkte der Legion (Photos der Flakstellungen, des Lagerleben etc.) auch eine große Abteilung mit Aufnahmen verschiedenster eingesetzter Flugzeuge, mit großer Überschrift (Alle Flugzeugtypen waren vertreten), die ca. 50 Photos auf mehrere Kartontafeln verteilt der folgenden Flugzeugtypen zeigen: Junkers JU 52, Strasser, Heinkel HE111, HE 70, HE 51, Messerschmidt ME 106, ME 108, der italienische Bomber Savoica (mit mehreren Photos), Jäger von Fiat, Breater, Douglas, einige französische WK I-Jäger, etc., in der Regel mit spanischen Hoheitszeichen versehen. Mit eingebunden 34 Photographien, die den Unteroffizier als Gastauf dem U-Boot U 28 zeigen (auf ihrer Ausbildungsreise zu den Azoren (dort 22.-27.01.1937)). Über den Einsatz deutscher U-Boote im Spanischen Bürgerkrieg war lange wenig bekannt, die Besatzungen wurden unter Androhung der Todesstrafe zur Geheimhaltung genötigt. Alle militärischen Aufnahmen werden aufgelockert durch private Photos von Städtebesichtigungen, Besuchen von Stierkämpfen, allgemeinen Aufnahmen von Land und Leuten sowie 3 kuriose abphotographierten rotspanischen Ausweisen für Freudenhäuser. Neben Photos von verschiedenen Paraden vor Franco und General Queipo de Llana, gibt es am Ende des Albums mehrere Photos nach der Rückkehr, bei der Begrüssung in Berlin 1937 vor Hitler. Mit eingebunden sind 3 Seiten mit farbigen einmontierten Reklamezetteln aus Spanien (Stierkampf-Zettel, Hotelaufkleber etc.), 2 Seiten mit Briefmarken aus Spanien und Marokko, sowie einige Propaganda-Flugzettel, diverse handschriftliche Briefe etc. Rundum ein wichtiges historisches Dokument, das ev. neue Erkenntnisse über diesen ersten militärischen Einsatz deutscher Truppen nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg, bei dem die deutsche Luftwaffe unter strengster Geheimhaltung an mehreren bedeutenden Schlachten teilnahm und einen maßgeblichen Anteil am Sieg der Putschisten hatte.

        The Agamemnon of Aeschylus

      Faber & Faber 1936 - First impression. An acclaimed verse translation employing a contemporary idiom and intended primarily for the stage; MacNeice's Agamemnon was first performed by the Group Theatre in 1936 with music by Benjamin Britten. Doone's production received rather mixed reviews, not entirely unanticipated in some quarters: Auden had prepared the programme which included a note entitled: "Are You Dissatisfied With This Performance?" This copy signed by MacNeice and very scarce thus, this being only the second example we have encountered in two decades. Purple cloth over boards in dust wrapper, the latter edge-worn with numerous small chips and darkened at the spine. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Gone with the Wind (Will H Hays personal copy)

      New York: Macmillan, 1936. From the estate of Will H. Hays, with his name stamped bottom edge front endpage. (I have a number of signed and inscribed copies from the Hays estate available). Hays managed Warren G. Hardings successful campaign for the Presidency of the U.S. and was subsequently appointed Postmaster General. After a year in that position, he resigned to become most famously known as the first President of Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America (MPPDA), which under his guidance published a blacklist of actors and workers studios should not hire, inserted moral clauses into actors' contracts, and published an informal list of suggested guidelines for film producers. When the Catholic Church formed its Legion of Decency and threatened nationwide boycotts of movies, Hays installed a more formal production code, called the Hays Code( later simply "The Code"), which became the virtual law of Hollywood until the 1960s. Under it, all portrayals of nudity and overtly sexual behavior were banned (even between consenting adults). Even the aftermath of sexual activity, pregnancy and the resulting childbirth, wasn't allowed. It was the reason why, in "Gone with the Wind ", when Melanie Hamilton Wilkes was giving birth, she and Scarlett and Prissy were literally shown only as shadows on a wall. A fascinating and UNIQUE piece of Hollywood history ! Very Good, Hays has glued front and rear panels of dustjacket to front pastedown and front endpage. Cloth is rubbed, lightly soiled, and red discoloration bottom edge rear panel, still, a Very Good copy.. 8th Printing. Cloth. Very Good/No Jacket.
