        Margaret Mitchell signs an immaculate first edition copy of her landmark novel, Gone With the Wind, with a perfect signature

      n.p., 1936. 8vo.. "Her signature, ""Margaret Mitchell,"" accomplished on the front blank endpaper of her landmark novel, Gone With the Wind (New York: The MacMillan Company, 1936), 8vo., 1037 pp. First Edition, bound in gray cloth with titled boards and spine stamped in blue together with a facsimile dust jacket. Negligible wear absent of all the usual flaws that plague this popular and voraciously read novel.The novel's release, originally scheduled for May, was delayed until June pending a decision from the Book of the Month Club as to when they planned to include it in their offerings. Before the decision had been finalized, 10,000 copies had been printed with the erroneous May release notice. (The second issue notes a June 1936 release.)For publicity purposes, Macmillan requested that Mitchell sign a stack of blank sheets that would be inserted as endpapers when the book went to press. Over the course of five days in late March 1936, Mitchell signed 750 of these to be included in copies distributed to VIPs and select booksellers. After she completed the herculean task, she quipped that she had run ""amuck and autographed everything in sight, including wall paper."" (Ellen F. Brown, ed., Margaret Mitchell's Gone With the Wind: A Bestseller's Odyssey from Atlanta to Hollywood. 2011, pp. 53-54)"

        Turn, Magic Wheel

      Farrar & Rinehart, New York 1936 - First edition with Farrar seal on copyright page and no mention of later printings. Very good book in very rare, good, restored dust jacket with some paper lining inside the jacket. 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. Housed in a custom-made collector's slipcase. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Die Krisis der Europäischen Wissenschaften und die transzendentale Phaenomenologie. Eine Einleitung in die phänomenologosche Philosophie.

      Beograd, 1936. 8vo. Original printed wrappers. Backstrip with tiny losses and a tear to back hinge, but tight and fine. Edges slightly faded, otherwise fine. Uncut and mostly unopened. A very fine copy. Pp. (77)-176.. First printing, in the extremely scarce off-print, with a highly interesting presentation-inscription, of the first appearance of the first printed part (the only part to appear within his life-time) of Husserl's seminal work in which he develops his path-breaking project of linking the basic notions of science back to their conceptual roots in the pre-scientific parts of the "life-world". The work constitutes the last great work of the most important philosopher of the 20th century, the principal founder of phenomenology. The work is inscribed for the important philosopher, who is now primarily remembered for introducing the philosophy of Husserl to the English speaking public, "Herrn Professor Mr. Chr. V. Salmon/ mit freundlichen Grüssen von/ E Husserl"; Salmon famously translated Husserl's important Encyclopedia Britannica article on Phenomenology and lectured on Husserl in English, spreading his thoughts in the English speaking world. "Having received his M.A. in philosophy at Oxford, Christopher Verney Salmon studied with Husserl in Freiburg during the winter semester of 1922 and again during 1926-1927. In the summer of 1927 Salmon defended the doctoral dissertation that he had written under Husserl's direction, "The Central Problem of Hume's Philosophy: A Phenomenological Interpretation of the First Book of the "Treatise on Human Nature". The was published a year later in Husserl's "Jahrbuch", and Husserl refers to that forthcoming publication in his Bibliography to Draft A of the Article. A year after translating the EB article, Salmon was appointed a lecturer at the University of Belfast, and he continued to present Husserl's philosophy to the English-speaking public. On December 2, 1929 he delivered a lecture to the Aristotelian Society in London, "The Starting-Point of Husserl's Philosophy". Soon after that he helped W.R. Boyce Gibson read the page proofs of Boyce Gibson's translation of Husserl's "Ideas", and in 1932, a year after the work came out in English, Salmon published a review of it. However, contact between Salmon and Husserl fell off after that, and in the spring of 1937 Husserl noted that Professor Salmon had not written to him over the last years. Salmon published a brief article in French on Husserl in 1947. He died in 1960." (Sheehan and Palmer, the Preface to: Edmund Husserl: Psychological and Transcendental Phenomenology and the Confrontation with Heidegger (1927-1931), pp. 62-63).Clearly, as is seen from the present copy, Husserl and Salmon did have contact even in 1936.Husserl-inscriptions are of the utmost scarcity, as are offprints of the present work. The work appeared in volume 1 of "Philosophia. Philosophorum nostri temporis vox universa. Edidit Arthur Liebert." Belgrado (Beograd), 1936, a journal that in itself is scarce. Only very few copies of the offprint are known. In "Krisis", Husserl considers the pervasive sense of crisis in European culture, while attempting to give the last in a long line of introductions by him to the method of phenomenological research which he had founded. "Krisis" develops themes which are found in earlier works by Husserl, most importantly, the question of the constitution of intersubjectivity in the Cartesian Meditations (1929). However, a great interest of the work lies in its inflexion of the phenomenological methodology. Husserl, a mathematician by education, had articulated phenomenology as a rigorous science, on the ideals of 19th century rationalism. This understanding of the role of science and of philosophy permeates his earlier research which, while also treating social and historical phenomena, always does so from the vantage point of individual consciousness. In "Krisis", Husserl cuts the umbilical cord to individual consciousness. We find him engaged in what he describes as a "teleological-historical reflection upon the origins of our critical scientific and philosophical situation". This reflection revolves around the concept of "life-world" (Lebenswelt) which Husserl introduces as the designation of the pre-theoretical and unreflected element, out of which scientific thought arises. Husserl attributes the alienation of man in Europe to the fact that the sciences have forgotten that they are rooted in the "life-world". The concept has since played a pivotal role in the theory of communicative action of Jürgen Habermas. Krisis is the last work of the most influential philosopher of the 20th century. As such, it is an essential for anybody with an interest in phenomenology, the dominant non-analytic strain of philosophical reflection in the 20th century. At the same time, it represents something as exceptional as the radicalization of an entire life's work which opens up to entire new perspectives. It translates Husserl's sense of the growing malaise and restlessness in European culture, of which he himself was a victim since the Nazi take-over of power in Germany in 1933. But it is also a reply to the then increasingly successful existentialist philosophies of Martin Heidegger and Karl Jaspers, in whose work Husserl saw a travesty of his own philosophy and a threat to the foundation of European culture. In this sense, it is the last element in what is one of the most fruitful direct dialogues in the history of philosophy, the dialogue between Husserl and his former assistant Heidegger. The last of "The Crisis of European Sciences and Transcendental Phenomenology" only appeared posthumously, in 1954

        News From Tartary: A Journey from Peking to Kashmir

      London: Jonathan Cape,, 1936. Octavo. Original dark red cloth, titles to spine gilt, Chinese characters to front board gilt, top edge red. With the dust jacket. With frontispiece, 31 plates, and a partially coloured folding map. Sporadic faint foxing to contents; an excellent copy in the bright, unclipped jacket, with a few nicks and minor chips to extremities. First edition, first impression. The author, Peter Fleming (1907?-1971) was an editor at The Spectator, as well as a seasoned traveller and sportsman. In August 1934 he "once again set off for the Far East with a far-ranging commission from The Times. After a brief shooting trip with friends in the Caucasus he travelled on to Harbin in Manchuria, where by chance he met the Swiss traveller Ella (Kini) Maillart. It transpired that they both wanted to walk and ride from China to India, and though they both preferred to travel alone, they agreed to join forces. This epic journey of some 3500 miles on foot or ponies, through the remote province of Sinkiang (Xinjiang), with many dangers, hardships, and hold-ups, took them seven months, from February to September 1935. This, the most arduous of Fleming's long journeys, he chronicled in fourteen long articles in The Times and later in his book News from Tartary (1936)" (ODNB).

        Two Boys go Sailing. Illustrated by Brigid Ganly.

      London, J.M.Dent & Sons Ltd., 1936.. First Edition. 8°. Frontispiece - Illustration, VIII, 246 pages with a (partly fictitious) map of Roaringwater Bay on the pastedown and endpaper and 12 illustrations throughout the book. Original, illustrated Hardcover with the rare, illustrated dustjacket. Unusually excellent, close to new condition of this scarce book with only minor signs of external wear to the binding. The dustjacket with a small repair. This is one of the rarest publications on West Cork, Baltimore and Roaringwater Bay.. Edward Conor Marshall O'Brien (3 November 1880 - 18 April 1952) was an intellectual, Irish aristocrat, republican, nationalist, pioneer in modern maritime theory, owner and captain of one of the first boats to sail under the tri-colour of the Irish Free State, during his circumnavigation in the Saoirse. He was a grandson of the Fenian William Smith O'Brien. Reputedly this was the first small boat to sail around Cape Horn. This is slightly unfair to Joshua Slocum, the Bostonian, who was the first single-handed yachtsman to successfully pass this way (in 1895) although in the end, extreme weather forced him to use some of the inshore routes between the channels and islands and it is believed he may not have actually passed outside the Horn proper. Given the scale of Slocum's achievement it might be considered unfair to deprive him of the honour! Although it was nearly 30 years later, a strict definition of "the first small boat to sail around outside Cape Horn" could indeed cover the 42-foot (13 m) yacht Saoirse, sailed by Conor O'Brien with three hands, who rounded it during a circumnavigation of the world between 1923 and 1925 It was the first boat flying the Irish tri-colour to enter many of the world's ports and harbours. He was a ship builder/designer (notable boats include the Saoirse and AK Ilen ), gun runner for the Irish Volunteers during the war of independence in Ireland, captain of a ship sailing in the merchant navy during WWII.

      London: George G. Harrap and Co, 1936. No. 5 OF EIGHT COPIES ON VELLUM, SIGNED BY THE ARTIST (and 525 copies on paper) n. Hardcover. Remarkably Pleasing Gooden Engravings, one of Just Eight Copies on Vellum. 283 x 213 mm (11 1/8 x 8 3/8"). 312, [2] pp. Translated by Sir Robert L'Estrange. No. 5 OF EIGHT COPIES ON VELLUM, SIGNED BY THE ARTIST (and 525 copies on paper). Very fine publisher's special binding of russet crushed morocco designed by the artist and executed by Sangorski & Sutcliffe (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers gilt with strapwork frame featuring grape clusters in the corners and a prancing fox in the center, raised bands flanked by gilt rules, spine panels with a central gilt grape cluster, gilt titling, gilt-ruled turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt on the rough. In an excellent brown textured cloth box with matching slipcase. With 201 charming historiated initials, hand-colored in part by a former owner, and 12 FINE ENGRAVED ILLUSTRATIONS BY STEPHEN GOODEN (including the engraved title page), a couple of these partially hand colored. Campbell Dodgson, pp. 104-15. Leather with minor naturally occurring variations in color, one plate with very faint dampstain, a handful of tiny marginal smudges of stray coloring, otherwise an extremely pleasing copy, the vellum particularly smooth and bright, and the special binding lustrous and unworn. This is the very rare luxury version of Stephen Gooden's "magnum opus," one of the best illustrated versions of Aesop ever printed, and one of the finest illustrated books of the 20th century. It includes L'Estrange's preface to the whole collection, his reflections on each fable reprinted here, and "The Life of Aesop." According to the DNB, Gooden (1892-1955) was an engraver who "worked chiefly as a book illustrator-a field that fascinated him from childhood-beginning in 1923 with the Nonesuch Press 'Anacreon.' He contributed to 20 works, notably the Bible (Nonesuch, five volumes, 1925-27), 'The Fables of Jean de la Fontaine' (2 volumes, Heinemann, 1931), and the present work. Also, Gooden designed and engraved more than 40 bookplates, including those for Queen Elizabeth, Princess Elizabeth, and Princess Margaret, as well as four for the Royal Library, Windsor Castle." Gooden's engravings have a very strong appeal no matter the surface on which they appear, but they are particularly satisfying on the lustrous, buttery vellum of this special edition. While paper copies of this work appear on the market with some regularity, ABPC and Rare Book Hub find only one vellum copy at auction in the past 40 years.

        Typed letter inscribed

      1936. MITCHELL, Margaret.Typed letter signed.Atlanta, June 1, 1936.Typed letter signed and inscribed by Margaret Mitchell to her editor with exceptional content, written one month before publication of Gone With the Wind, including material on royalties, travel to New York, speaking engagements, the process of writing, and the possibility of selling the movie rights.This exceptional and lengthy letter offers great insight into Mitchell?'s relationship with her publisher and glimpses of her strong personality and vibrant sense of humor. The recipient, Harold Latham, an editor at Macmillan, had famously pried the manuscript of Gone With the Wind away from Mitchell the year before on a visit to Atlanta. On a tour of the South to find new writers, Latham received reports that Mitchell had a manuscript, a fact she repeatedly denied. Then she admitted that although there was a manuscript, it was unfinished. Finally, on the eve of Latham?'s departure, Mitchell showed up at his hotel with the entire manuscript—a pile of papers so large Latham needed to buy an extra suitcase just for it. Although she regretted the action immediately and wrote to Latham asking him to return the manuscript, Latham refused, saying that he was certain that with revisions it would be not only publishable but popular. The story of Latham?'s ?"discovery?" of Mitchell almost instantly passed into legend and became almost as well known as the book itself.Macmillan initially offered Mitchell a $500 advance, with 10% royalties on the first 10,000 copies and 15% royalties thereafter. After seeing the length of the final revised manuscript that Mitchell sent them—over 400,000 words—Macmillan realized that they would either have to raise the price on the book (a difficult proposition during the Depression) or cut the material down drastically. They offered Mitchell a choice: cut the book or accept a downward revision of all royalties to 10%. Mitchell opted for a lengthier tome with the lighter royalties. But after intense pre-publication publicity and the fortuitous selection of Gone With the Wind as a Book of the Month Club selection, it became clear that the book was going to be a best-seller, and Macmillan generously offered to reinstate the original terms of the contract with Mitchell (Macmillan?'s generosity extended to its own employees later that year when they gave all their employees an 18% bonus based solely on the success of the book). The letter, dated a month before official publication of the book, opens with an acknowledgement of the new terms: ?"Dear Mr. Latham; When Lois Cole?'s letter arrived, telling me of the revision of the royalties, I wired her immediately—well, not exactly immediately for I had to wait to get my breath—and asked her to thank every one concerned in the matter. And now I want to thank you personally because I know you were very much concerned about it. Your letter of May 27 has just arrived and at the end of it you speak of this rearrangement of royalties as being one more evidence of your desire to deal fairly with me. I really do not need further evidence of that now! I am firmly convinced that even Jurgen himself never dealt more fairly with a woman than Macmillan has with me! You have been more than kind, more than generous in this matter, as in others. Really, I had put the whole matter of the cut in royalties out of my mind, for so much had happened since then. Besides, at the time when the matter first came up, when you were in Europe, I thought, ?'They are putting a lot of money behind my book for advertising purposes. A lot more money than they usually put for a new and unknown author. And the advertising probably more than makes up for the cut in royalties.… So, you see, I wasn?'t sucking my thumb and pouting all this time and when the good news arrived it was just as exciting and delightful as when the Easter Rabbit used to pay his annual visit when I was a child.?"After a long discussion of possible travel plans to New York, Mitchell give a humorous account of a speaking engagement in Atlanta where she employed unusual tactics to insure that it would be ?"my swan song as a speaker?": ?"I elected to speak on reference works… if I do say it myself, Carlysle?'s ?'Essay on Burns?' couldn?'t have been duller.?" (Yet Mitchell goes on to describe a talk that sounds wry and witty, telling a story about a conversation with a backwoods farmer: ?"He answered my questions and then, curious about writers, asked a plenty. I told him with deep feeling that writing was a dreary, dull job. You sweated, and groaned and itched and broke out in rashes and then felt like you smelled bad. And he said with sympathy, ?'When you come right down to it, writing a book ain?'t so very different from spreading manure, is it??") She goes on to discuss Latham?'s home, comment on possible movie rights (?"I was very interested in your remarks about the movie rights and shall wait with even more interest for developments?"), and to request that he forward a letter to a critic in New York. Her signature is followed by a typed post-script, which is followed by a hand-written one: ?"P.S.S. I was interrupted and the day has passed with out this being mailed and without my letter to Mr. Jackson being finished. I want this to get you before you go away so will not enclose the letter to him. I hope you have a fine time.?"Mitchell remained close friends with Latham for the rest of her life. He was with her in Atlanta when she was awarded the Pulitzer prize for literature, more confident she would win it than Mitchell herself was. At the Atlanta premiere for the movie in 1939, Latham was an honored guest, along with Mitchell and the stars of the film.An extraordinary Margaret Mitchell item with exceptional content.
