      New York: The Macmillan Company, 1936., 1936. First edition. First edition. 8vo. Cloth, frontispiece, xiv, 242 pp., introduction. Divided into two major sections we find a strong emphasis on the songs, especially reels, work songs, hollers, the blues, the talkin' blues, ballads, and a miscellany of both white influences and pardon songs. Lead Belly, a double murderer, sung his way to pardons in the Texas and Louisiana Penitentiaries. He spent twelve years on penitentiary farms working in the field, singing and "hollering" under the gun and whip. Through his music you have the background of "jazz," the history of popular and folk music among southern Afro-Americans. His blues, his ballads, his work-songs sum up the observations, attitudes and opinions of a large part of the southern Afro-American population. This is the book of Lead Belly---a creative genius among Afro-American folk artists. His story is told in terms of tunes, texts, and guitar accompaniments. It contains biographical material and annotation of the songs in his own words. Following Lead Belly's release from prison in 1934, John and Alan Lomax sought to manage Lead Belly's career as a performer. John A. Lomax brought Lead Belly to New York from the South, after he had sung his way out of prison, and has worked with him compiling and editing his songs and story. No previous substantial biography of a Black musician prior to the publication of this book, which was a commercial failure at the time and received a long review in the New York Times. The book still stands as one of the best biographies of a black musician. Lead Belly spent the last fifteen years of his life performing, influencing the music scene in blues, and eventually rock 'n' roll. Former owner's inked name on front pastedown sheet, minor foxing to a few early pages and to the fore-edges, else a near fine, internally clean copy, bright copy, lacking the elusive dust jacket. Scarce and elusive copy of an important book. Housed in a cloth slipcase.

Reliure non signée mais d'excellente facture sortant sans aucun doute d'un atelier renommé et d'une main sûre et habile tant en ce qui concerne la dorure qui est nette et de qualité, qu'en ce qui concerne la qualité du maroquin utilisé. Exemplaire à l'état de neuf. Etui bordé (papier des plats de l'étui frotté). TIRAGE A 1.600 EXEMPLAIRES. CELUI-CI, 1 DES 1.200 EXEMPLAIRES SUR VÉLIN TEINTÉ D'ARCHES. Ce volume a été achevé d'imprimer à Paris sur les presses de Fequet et Baudier, le 30 mars 1936. Le coloris est de Berthelot et Charpentier. La Maison Tellier a été publiée pour la première fois en 1881. Se situant dans la continuité des récits sur la prostitution, elle constitue la nouvelle réaliste de Maupassant la plus célèbre après Boule de suif. D'ailleurs, Guy écrivait à sa mère : « C'est au moins égal à Boule de suif, sinon supérieur ». La maison close de province, tenue par Madame Tellier, est « fermée pour cause de première communion » au grand dam des habitués. Après un périple en chemin de fer, les pensionnaires assistent à la cérémonie et sont émues par Constance, nièce de Madame Tellier, et l'ambiance de l'église ... Guy de Maupassant, en grand habitué des maisons closes, dépeint avec force ce milieu particulier des filles de joie. En juillet 1877, Maupassant écrit à Tourguenieff qu'en trois jours, il a "tiré 19 coups". Pierre Boborikine (autre écrivain russe) rapporte de son côté que l'auteur de La Maison Tellier a démontré sa virilité devant lui six fois de suite, suivies de trois autres avec une seconde partenaire dans une chambre voisine. La Maison Tellier est justement originellement dédiée à Yvan Tourguenieff. SUPERBE EXEMPLAIRE DANS UNE FINE RELIURE DE MAROQUIN DÉCORÉ.

        Peer Gynt

      London: George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd,, 1936. A Dramatic Poem. Quarto (265 x 189 mm). Specially bound for the publisher in green full morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, gilt lettered and panelled spine, single-line gilt panel on sides with gilt corner ornaments from designs by Rackham, top edges gilt, others untrimmed, two-line gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers (the original pictorial endpapers bound in after binder's blanks). Coloured frontispiece and 11 mounted colour plates, black and white drawings in the text, by Rackham. An excellent copy. Deluxe edition, number 1 of 460 copies signed by the artist. This is one of ten "special copies" reserved by the publisher from the total edition, presented in a specially commissioned luxury binding and including a delightful full-page original pen-and-ink and watercolour drawing by Rackham (signed "Arthur Rackham 36"), showing Peer Gynt in a mountain landscape with crouching figures and anthropomorphic trees. Describing his artistic method for these "specials", Rackham pointed out that "my little sketches must inevitably be of a light hearted or joking nature... They have to be spontaneous and free handed. The nature of the paper is such that there can be no preparatory drawing and no alterations". Riall comments that "From The King of the Golden River [1932], Harrap issued nine or ten copies, seven being for sale, of a special issue of the first limitation numbers of the limited edition" (A New Bibliography of Arthur Rackham, 1994, p. xvi).

        2 autograph letters signed. Paris, 1936 and 1937.

      1936. Large 4to. Altogether (¾+1 =) 1¾ pp. on 2 ff. With one addendum (s. b.). To Belgian author, filmmaker and documentarist Henri Storck, telling him about his imminent making of 'La Grande illusion' and expressing his wish to come and visit him in Brussels as well as to work with his Club du Cinéma (28. X. 1936). - "J'aurais dû commencer déjà depuis longtemps un film 'La Grande Illusion' et je ne le commence que lundi prochain. C'est vous dire que je ne serai libre ni le 10, ni le 22 Février. [...] Remarquez que, en dehors du désir de collaborer à votre Club à l'occasion d'une séance, je grille d'envie d'aller à Bruxelles que je ne connais pas du tout. C'est assez ridicule quand on habite Paris., c'est-à-dire à 3 ou 4 heures de chemins de fer. [...]" (20. I. 1937). - One letter with printed letterhead, the other with punched holes (not touching text). Accompanied by an ALS from Belgian screenwriter Charles Spaak to Renoir in which Spaak accuses the addressee of having cheated him out of the rights of "La Grande illusion", for which Spaak had been a coauthor: "Vieux traitre ! [...] tu m'a volé les trois quarts de mes droits d'auteur. Elle fut belle, la séance où le père Rolmer a sorti les papiers et les a mis sous le nez de Devalde qui était de la couleur de ce papier. Et Rolmer se marrait derrière son bureau : - Renoir vous a roulé! Devalde ne disait rien, n'en croyant pas ses yeux. Mais ton papier dégueulasse était mal foutu. Tu leur donnais les droits de " la grande Illusion " pour dix ans [...] Mais je n'avais vendu mes droits que pour sept ans ... Impossible de resortir le film ! Demande à Devalde si c'est vrai : on m'a proposé de me rembourser [...] ce que tu m'avais volé ! On m'a proposé de me laisser tous les droits pendant trois ans. J'ai refusé !

        2 autograph letters signed. Garmisch, 25. X. 1936.

      1936. 8vo. Altogether (4+1=) 5 pp. on double leaves. To the critic Alexander Berrsche. A long and comprehensive letter in which Strauss explains in detail what Berrsche had criticized in his review of an Academy Concert that Strauss had conducted: "You heard quite correctly that it was less 'vivacious', less 'dashing' than usual [...] the brass section remained 'unaffected' and 'subdued'. Beethoven's Scherzo was played (following Bulow's rule) in moderate tempo for the first time, and only the second repetition was played in full Vivace, the finale was played a third slower than is common among the world's most famous conductors and even Richard Wagner himself postulated (erroneously, in my opinion) [...]". - Includes a typed letter to Berrsche by the publisher, and a letter from Strauss to a Munich publishing house.

        THE SHADOW OVER INNSMOUTH. Illustrated by Frank A. Utpatel.

      Everett, Pennsylvania: Visionary Publishing Co., 1936. First Edition, First Printing. First edition. Octavo, original black cloth titled in silver. Of two known bindings, this copy has the title in upper and lower case letters. 158 pp., four illustrations by Frank Utpatel. 400 copies were printed. Around 200 copies were bound, the remaining sheets destroyed or abandoned. A dust wrapper was issued as an afterthought, and exists in three states; due to a leaky garage, fewer than 100 had dust wrappers. An errata sheet was made up some time after initial publication and exists in some copies. The errata leaf and printed dust jacket accompany this copy. The dust jacket is Currey variant 3 (no priority established), with lettering in silver and no illustration on front panel, the lettering on the spine and front panel printed horizontally in upper and lower case letters. A virtually fine copy in dust jacket, with very little spine creasing (the book was poorly bound and copies are most commonly found with wretched spines). Errata slip laid in. Enclosed in a fine folding solander case, black leather spine titled in gilt and gray cloth sides, commissioned especially for this copy from master bookbinder Gray Parrot. Lovecraft's first published book, preceded by THE SHUNNED HOUSE (1928) that was printed but not bound, and circulated only within a tiny circle of Lovecraft's friends. The book was printed in April, 1936, the edition not bound until November, Lovecraft received his copies late in the year and sent out some inscribed copies as Christmas presents He was hospitalized soon after that and died on March 15, 1937.

        Marlborough: His Life and Times. Volume III.

      George Harrap & Co. Ltd, London 1936 - Frontispiece, plates, facsimiles, maps and plans (seven folding, three with colour). First Edition. 8vo. [238 x 155 x 48 mm]. [1]f, 607, [1] pp. Bound in the original mauve cloth, arms blocked in gilt on front cover, spine lettered in gilt, top edge gilt. (Spine and head of the covers faded). With the errata slip. Occasional light foxing or spotting, mostly at the front and rear and to the fore-edge. Inscribed in ink on the front free endleaf: "To H. Beckett Overy with all good wishes from Winston S. Churchill Nov.1936". Harry Beckett-Overy (1875-1950) was born at Brenchley in Kent the first of 13 children to Henry Overy, a farmer, and his wife Sarah. He assumed the name Beckett-Overy after his marriage with Mary Beckit in 1906. He was educated at Kent College, Swanley Agricultural College, the University of St. Andrews and the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, graduating from Edinburgh University in 1902. He served at various London hospitals, and during the 1914-18 war he was medical officer in charge of the Londonderry House hospital for officers in Park Lane. He later practised as a gynaecological surgeon, first at 19 Lowndes Street and then at 15 Herbert Crescent. He was Honorary Secretary of the British Gynaecological Society and Vice-President of obstetrics and gynaecology section of the Royal Society of Medicine. His publications included 'Treatment of varicose veins by sclerosing injections' (1927). Beckett-Overy also acted as personal physician or consultant to Winston and Clementine Churchill. The Churchill Archive at Cambridge includes notes on the Parke-Davies Dietary written by Beckett-Overy in the 1930s (CHAR1/391) and a letter dated 11/10/1935 reporting on Randolph Churchill's voice (CHAR1/272/21). There is also a letter dated 15/11/1937 from Sir Raymond Crawford to Beckett-Overy including a translation of a prescription for John, 1st Duke of Marlborough for a decochon to treat his penis (CHAR28/146B/21). He gives the possible problem as "a gouty balanitis" and comments "I tremble to think what his penis must have been like after a few injections of turpentine". This information was duly forwarded to Churchill by Beckett-Overy, who may have picked up on the repeated references to Marlborough's ailments in this volume of his biography. When Churchill was ill on 31/10/1940 he turned to Beckett-Overy who wrote a few days later "I wanted you to take the castor oil for I felt it was an opportunity to clear out whatever was irritating you".
