        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.

Also includes Oswell Blakeston's "The Crack," a nightmarish piece strangely reminiscent of Lovecraft's "Nyarlathotep." The eleventh and last volume in the important "Not at Night" anthology series.

Loslio) with wear at edges, some general dust soiling, and 6p reduced price sticker affixed to the spine panel. A pretty decent copy of a cheaply made book.

        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".

        La spedizione geografica italiana al Karakoram: (1929-7. E. F.): storia del viaggio e risultati geografici. Pubblicazione effettuata sotto gli auspici: della Reale Società Geografica Italiana del Club Alpino Italiano e del Comune di Milano.

      Arti grafiche Bertarelli, Milano-Roma, 1936. 2 v. (XXIV [2] 568 LI p. [38] c. di tav.; [9] c. ripieg.) 29 cm tela di juta con titoli impressi a stampa. Il contenitore delle mappe è in cartonato pesante. Dopo la rinuncia di Giotto Dainelli il ruolo di comandante della Spedizione venne affidato ad Aimone di Savoia-Aosta Duca di Spoleto. La squadra di scienziati al seguito era composta da: Ardito Desio (responsabile delle ricerche geologiche e geografiche) Mario Cugia (per le osservazioni astronomiche e geofisiche) Ludovico di Caporiacco (raccolte zoologiche e botaniche) Gino Allegri (misurazioni antropologiche) Angelo Anfossi (addetto al radiotelegrafo e alle osservazioni meteorologiche). Data la morfologia del territorio in esame furono reclutate due guide alpine Leone Bron ed Evaristo Croux per accompagnare gli studiosi nelle loro escursioni; tale fu anche il ruolo di Umberto Balestreri (capo carovana in assenza del comandante) Vittorio Ponti e Giuseppe Chiardola (impegnato quest'ultimo anche nelle misurazioni topografiche). Completava il quadro Massimo Terzano teleoperatore addetto alle riprese fotografiche e cinematografiche.Dopo aver raggiunto il campo-base sul ghiacciaio Baltoro procedendo per scaglioni gli esploratori effettuarono le loro escursioni dividendosi volta per volta in manipoli[1]. Di particolare autonomia beneficiò Desio il quale dapprima conquistò con Croux la Sella Conway quindi risalì con Balestreri la val Shaksgam fino al ghiacciaio Kyagar; compì inoltre una perlustrazione completa del bacino idrografico del ghiacciaio Panmah accompagnato da Ponti; infine nel viaggio di ritorno da Skardu a Srinagar attraversò in solitaria l'altopiano delle Deosai trattenendovisi per due settimane. Nel complesso la Spedizione lasciò l'Italia a cominciare dal 2 febbraio 1929 mentre l'ultimo gruppo rientrò in patria il 24 ottobre dello stesso anno.L'opera è divisa in due parti. La prima parte a cura di Aimone di Savoia-Aosta affronta la storia della spedizione la seconda curata da Ardito Desio raccoglie i ris UsatoBuono Anno pubblicazione: 1936.

        The Works of Samuel DeChamplain. Reprinted, Translated & Annotated by Six Canadian Scholars.Edited by H.P. Biggar.

      Toronto. Champlain Society. 1922-1936. - 8vo.23.5cm, in 7 volumes, containing 82 maps and plates, many folding,(including separate portfolio of plates and maps), limited and numberededition, this being 72, in the original crested red cloth, t.e.g., formerowner's bookplate in volumes one & seven, spines slightly faded as usual(titles clear), else a fine set. (cgc) With the text in French andEnglish. T.P.L. 30. Waterston p203. Champlain's vigorous descriptions ofQuebec, Tadoussac, the St. Lawrence and Acadian regions were not fullyavailable in English translation until 1936. He presented his commentson trade, exploration and climate in a series of official reports between1604 and 1632. Samuel de Champlain, explorer and colonizer, was born atBrouage, France, about 1567. Visiting America in 1601, he was appointedroyal geographer on his return to France; and in 1603 he made his firstvisit to the Gulf of St. Lawrence. In 1604 he accompanied Monts'expedition to Acadia, and he spent the next three years exploring andmapping the coasts of Acadia and northern New England. In 1608 hecommanded the expedition which founded the post of Quebec and the restof his life was mainly devoted to making this settlement a success. In1612 he was appointed commandant in New France; and in 1627 he becameGovernor of the Colony under the Company of One Hundred Associates. Hiswork as an explorer and geographer, was, however, no less noteworthy thanhis work as a colonizer. In 1613 he visited the upper Ottawa Valley, andin 1615-16 he reached Georgian Bay, by way of the Ottawa River and LakeNipissing; spent a winter among the Huron Indians; followed the Trentvalley south to Lake Ontario; and penetrated into the Iroquois countryin Northern New York. Here Champlain had an encounter with the Iroquoiswhich proved later disastrous for the French colonists; but this resulthe could hardly have foreseen. Champlain died at Quebec on December 25,1635 but with the satisfaction of seeing the colony of New France firmlyestablished. His writings are classics of early North American travel.Wallace DCB. The definitive edition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        SUISSE EN IMAGES LUMINEUSES

      - PERE CASTOR. SUISSE EN IMAGES LUMINIEUSES designed by Lalouve. Paris: Flammarion (1936). Square 4to (8 1/2"), flexible pictorial card coverss, Fine and unused. 1st edition. There are 12 lovely full page silhouette illustrations. Each illustration represents a different historical figure or event in Swiss history including William Tell, Nicolas de Flue, Major Davel and more. The child is to cut out the marked sections of the illustration. Then by cutting out pieces of various colored papers provided in the book, and pasting them into open sections of the full page illustration, the child can make their own illuminated pictures. The effect is most effective when held to the light. Designed by LALOUVE whose real name was Kate Wolff. Wolff was a Jewish artist forced to leave Germany in 1933. She came to Paris and began to work for Pere Castor, hiding her Jewish origins and changing her name to Lalouve, This is one of the more unusual and rare Pere Castor titles.

        Waugh in Abyssinia

      First edition; 8vo; original cloth. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "Mary Herbert with love from Evelyn Oct. 1936." Mary Herbert became Waugh's mother- in-law, following his divorce and marriage to her daughter Laura. There were grave misgivings to the marriage from the Herberts, an aristocratic Catholic family; a further complication was that Laura Herbert was a cousin of Waugh's first wife Evelyn Gardner. Despite family hostility the marriage took place in April 1937. Mary appears to have been a domineering figure in the household at Pixton, the Herbert family house in Somerset, and relations between her and Evelyn were always stormy. In his autobiography Will This Do? Auberon Waugh recalled that on his father's first visit to Pixton, he was pelted with hard Italian buns and driven from the house. The date of this inscription, October 1936, comes two months after Waugh's first marriage had been annulled and is perhaps an attempt to mollify Mary. It is interesting to note that another copy of this work came up at auction (Sotheby's 19th May 1977) inscribed to Auberon Herbert, his future father-in-law, who also strongly opposed the union between Waugh and Laura. Very good some light spotting to endpapers, spine ends and corners a little bumped, preserved in custom made slip-case.
