        Horror on the Asteroid

      London: Philip Allan, 1936., 1936. First edition. 8vo. Bound in publisher's red cloth titled and ruled in black to spine. Minor rubbing and shelfwear, some sunning to extremities. Very good indeed. In a very good, clean example of the extremely scarce dustwrapper, with chipping and loss to spine ends affecting the title and publisher. Minor loss to corners, some soiling and creasing to white rear panel. Perhaps doesn't sound particularly delicious, but it's rarity in any form of dustwrapper makes up somewhat for the wear and tear. One of the highly collectable "Creeps" series.

      ARDIZZONE. ARDIZZONE,EDWARD. LITTLE TIM AND THE BRAVE SEA CAPTAIN. London, NY, & Toronto: Oxford Univ.Press, 1936. Folio, pictorial boards, slight edge rubbing else near FINE IN DUST WRAPPER (dw chipped, frayed). First edition of Ardizzone's first book for children. Written by Ardizzone with text in calligraphy and with color illustrations on every page. Although it was published in London and New York, the entire edition was printed in New York during a hot, humid summer. To protect the pictures it had to be printed on one side of paper only. This is a wonderful story that Eyre calls "one of the most convincing British picture story books yet produced" (p.43). Whalley (p.188-9) notes that this was one of the first books to be printed with photolithography... it proved to be a major landmark in the history of the English picture book.

        The general theory of employment interest and money

      London, Macmillan and Co., 1936. 8vo., xii + 403 + (1)pp., in the original publisher's cloth lettered gilt. A fine, bright, copy without blemish, but without a dustwrapper. First edition: first issue. One of the iconic books in the development of economic thought by one of the outstanding economists of his generation. 'The composition of this book', Keynes declares, 'has been for the author a long struggle of escape, and so must the reading of it be for most readers if the author's assault upon them is to be successful, - a struggle of escape from habitual modes of thought and expression. The ideas which are here expressed so laboriously are extremely simple and should be obvious. The difficulty lies, not in the new ideas, but in escaping from the old ones, which ramify, for those brought up as most of us have been, into every corner of our minds.' [Preface,> p. viii].

        The Tenements of Chicago 1908–1935

      Chicago: The University of Chicago Press,, 1936. Assisted by Sophonisba P. Breckenridge and other associates in the School of Social Service Administration of the University of Chicago. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine and front board gilt. With the dust jacket. Frontispiece, 34 plates, 9 maps. Ownership signature to front free endpaper. Small closed tear to front free endpaper; an excellent, fresh copy in the jacket that has some toning to spine and panel edges, three-quarters of front flap separating from front panel, some shallow chips and nicks to extremities. First edition, first impression. Scarce in the jacket. The results of a 25-year research project, this landmark study of tenement neighbourhoods in Chicago was undertaken by two prominent female social scientists and reformers. Abbott earned a PhD in economics and penned over 100 books and articles calling for improved social welfare and the alleviation of poverty, and in 1935 she was one of the drafters of the Social Security Act. Breckenridge was, in 1895, the first woman admitted to the Kentucky bar, and later earned a PhD in economics. She moved to Chicago in 1907 and began working on issues related to poverty before becoming a full professor at the University of Chicago. In 1925 the two women co-founded the influential journal Social Service Review, which is still published by the University of Chicago.

        Campesino, defiende con las armas al gobierno que te dió la tierra

      Graficas Valencia, Intervenido U.G.T. - C.N.T. [1936], Valencia - A dramatic poster of impressive scale, produced to celebrate the land reform policies of the Republican government in the months following the fascist rebellion. Renau (1907-1982) was among the most talented and most prolific of the left-wing artists engaged by the Ministerio de Propaganda. Following the Civil War, he was captured and briefly interned in a French concentration camp, but managed to escape to Mexico in 1939. In Mexico he pursued a long and distinguished career as a muralist, painter, and political propagandist. In 1966 Renau relocated to East Germany, where he published his classic Fata Morgana USA: the American Way of Life, a book of photomontaged images highly critical of North American consumer culture. CARULLA 1613 (pictured). Lithographed poster in 4 colors; 153 x 103 cm (ca 60-1/4" x 41"). Archivally backed on linen. Few minor spots of restoration along upper margin; two brief (1") repaired tears; Grade A-.

        The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money

      Macmillan and Co, London 1936 - First edition. xii, 403pp. 8vo. From the moment of publication to the current day, it's difficult to overstate the impact Keynes and his General Theory has had on the field of macroeconomics. "The world-wide slump after 1929 prompted Keynes to attempt an explanation of, and new methods for controlling, the vagaries of the trade cycle? [h]e subjected the definitions and theories of the classical school of economists to a penetrating scrutiny and found them seriously inadequate and inaccurate" (PMM). Controversial and divisive, it was received with enthusiasm by some and dismissed as a recipe for inflation by others. Put briefly, his analysis demonstrated that "[e]conomic policy should [ultimately] provide for the management of demand as a means of controlling the level of output and seek to ensure the fullest possible use of available resources" (ODNB). Keynes's General Theory provides an invaluable critique and thus is a sort of companion volume of the likes of Adam Smith.

        At the Mountains of Madness [its first publication, serially, in Astounding Stories, February-March-April 1936]

      New York: Street & Smith Publications, Inc.. Good+. 1936. (Vol. XVI, No. 6; Vol. XVII, Nos. 1-2). Magazine. [all three issues are dampstained to some extent on the rear covers, with a small amount of effect on the internals; only on the third (April) issue is there any impact on the front cover of the magazine, and the cover that illustrates the Lovecraft story itself (February) is quite clean and presents very well.] The first appearance in print of Lovecraft's classic novella "At the Mountains of Madness," about a disastrous Antarctic expedition, originally written in 1931 but rejected at that time (purportedly on account of its length) by "Weird Tales," which had published his work pretty regularly during the 1920s. The story is considered one of Lovecraft's finest works, and has had a considerable afterlife in numerous media, although a rumored film version to be directed by Guillermo del Toro has yet to come to fruition. (There are of course many other stories in these three issues, by such luminaries as Manly Wade Wellman and Eando Binder -- I'll supply the details upon request, if you really want to know -- but let's face it: they all pale next to Lovecraft.) .

        Die neue Linie. August 1936, Olympia. [Special Berlin Olympics issue. Heft 12, VII. Jahrgang]

      Leipzig: Otto Bayer, 1936. First edition. Softcover. g. Folio. 87, [1]pp. Original color wrappers splendidly illustrated by H. F and Hein Neuner. Published in Germany between 1929 and 1943, Die neue Linie ("The New Line") was an outstanding new lifestyle magazine on art, architecture, and fashion. No other publication of this era was so consistent in bringing avant-garde typographic ideas to a mass audience, as leading graphic designers from the Bauhaus, including László Moholy-Nagy, Umbo and Herbert Bayer, steered the look of the magazine, whose contents combined fashion, literature, graphic design and art. Unembellished fonts, dynamic diagonals and dramatic use of photomontage were key to the journal's striking appearance. Its authors included Walter Gropius, Aldous Huxley, Gottfried Benn and Thomas Mann; even the advertising pages, designed by Bauhaus veterans Herbert Bayer and Kurt Kranz, were always attractively composed. Despite widespread media conformity during the Nazi era, Die Neue Linie was largely spared the regime's sanctions. This exceptional issue is mainly dedicated to the Berlin Olympic Games, and features a lenghty article on the art at the Olympic stadium, and others relative to the historical sportive event. This magazine is superbly illustrated throughout with numerous b/w photographic reproductions as well as color illustrations. Some rubbing and moderate creasing along edges of wrappers. Closed tears at tail of spine. Text in German, with some captions in English and French. Wrappers in overall good-, interior in very good condition.
