        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.

        The General Theory of Employment Interest and Money

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited,, 1936. Octavo. Original dark green cloth, gilt lettered spine, double gilt rules to spine, double blind rules to covers. With the dust jacket. Ownership inscription on front free endpaper, jacket toned (spine more noticeably so) and torn at head (with partial loss affecting lettering), spine rolled, a little dust marking to top edge. A very good copy. First edition, first impression of this key work. Written in the aftermath of the Great Depression, Keynes' masterpiece is generally regarded as one of the most influential social science treatises of the century. It "subjected the definitions and theories of the classical school of economists to a penetrating scrutiny and found them seriously inadequate and inaccurate" (PMM), quickly and permanently changing the way the world looked at the economy and the role of government in society.

        Typed letter signed

      1936. Signed. MITCHELL, Margaret.Typed letter signed.Atlanta, Georgia, August 22, 1936.Fascinating August 22, 1936 typed letter signed by Mitchell, writing psychiatrist Dr. Charles E. Mayos on her personal letterhead only months after publication of Gone with the Wind, with revealing insights into her early desire to become a psychiatrist as she writes, in part: "Nothing could have pleased me more than to have a psychiatrist praise the pattern of Scarlett O'Hara's emotional life… your words of praise about 'the accurate description of human emotions' pleased me so much."Mitchell's August 22, 1936 letter to psychiatrist Dr. Charles E. Mayos, written mere months after publication of Gone with the Wind, is one of the few known letters in which she offers revealing personal information, for Mitchell was famed for a profound "reticence about her life… so deep, in fact, that some of her closest friends claimed they were never sure they really knew her" (Jones, Tomorrow is Another Day). Here she writes of her early hopes of becoming a psychiatrist and of being "forced to leave college when my mother died as I was the only daughter in the family, and was needed at home to keep house. I hoped for years to go back to medical school." Her letter also affirms what Mitchell often insisted about Gone with the Wind—that the novel, in her own words, was entirely "written through Scarlett's eyes. What she understood was written down; what she did not understand—and there were many things beyond her comprehension, they were left to the reader's imagination, even as they were left to Scarlett's" (Harwell, Gone with the Wind Letters, 102). Her correspondent, Dr. Mayos, was on the staff of Watertown State Hospital in Illinois after serving as a captain in the Medical Corps at Camp Grant, Illinois. Mitchell's letter, in typescript on her personal letterhead, reads: "August 22, 1936, Dear Doctor Mayos: Since my book 'Gone With The Wind' was published I have received a number of letters, but non quite as penetrating as yours. I had thought, and frequently said with all sincerity, that I had written a purely objective novel—a novel that had nothing of myself or my own experiences in it—then your letter comes and sets me to wondering. Nothing could have please me more than to have a psychiatrist praise the pattern of Scarlett O'Hara's emotional life. I am one of those people who are disliked by all real psychiatrists. I am a layman who knows just a little about abnormal psychology. I started out to be a psychiatrist, but, unfortunately, was forced to leave college when my mother died as I was the only daughter in the family, and was needed at home to keep house. I hoped for years to go back to medical school, and with that idea in view kept up my studies. I realize that I know all the tops of abnormal psychology—and have none of the basic and rudimentary knowledge. Its [sic] like knowing geometry and never having known the multiplication tables. Perhaps you can understand, after this explanation, why your words of praise about 'the accurate description of human emotions' pleased me so much. Sincerely [signed] Margaret Mitchell [typescript] Margaret Mitchell."Text crisp and dark, only faint foldlines. A fine signed letter.

        Gone With the Wind

      New York: Macmillan 1936 - First edition, first printing (May 1936). Signed by Mitchell on the front free endpaper. Publisher's gray cloth, lettered in teal. Very good, with some light toning to the spine, light rubbing to the extremities, spine shaken with minor fraying to the spine ends and a few creases, otherwise tight binding without any signs of starting, a hint of minor spotting to the top edge, a few minor creases to the bright and clean pages. Overall, a clean and presentable copy, signed by Mitchell. Gone with the Wind won Margaret Mitchell both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. Perhaps best described as a work of historical fiction, Gone with the Wind also has many of the trappings of a traditional bildungsroman and romance novel, although critics argue that it does not fully fall under the category of either genre. The novel tells of archetypal Southern belle Scarlett O'Hara as she grows from a young woman into maturity against the backdrop of the American Civil War. Like many of the early 20th century Southern writers, Mitchell portrays an idyllic image of the antebellum South. While it can be legitimately criticized for its insensitivity to the treatment of African Americans who were enslaved, Mitchell's novel demonstrates how the South was decimated by the Civil War and continued to suffer under the Northern-sanctioned Restoration. Also the basis of the 1939 Academy Award-winning movie, the conflicted love story of rebellious Scarlett and Rhett Butler remains an American classic.

        The Story of Ferdinand

      New York: The Viking Press, , 1936. Square quarto. Finely bound by The Chelsea Bindery in pink morocco, titles to spine gilt, block of Ferdinand to front board with colour flowers inlaid to front board, patterned endpapers along with the original pictorial endpapers, gilt edges. Black and white illustrations throughout by Robert Lawson. An excellent copy. First edition, first printing. A beautifully bound copy of this classic children's tale, of a bull who liked to smell flowers under the cork tree rather than fight in bull fights. Published just months before the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, many saw it as a Pacifist title. It was banned in several countries, including Spain. Hitler ordered the title to be burned, while Stalin allowed it to be the only non communist children's title allowed in Poland and Mahatma Gandhi proclaimed it as his favourite book. This title was also the basis for the 1938 Walt Disney animated short which won the Academy Award that year in the best short film category.

(It was, too, an early example of colour offset lithography. Its spacious folios were printed in the United States, where the text was hand-lettered by Grace Allen Hogarth, an editor at the Oxford University Press New York office.)

        The Equinox of the Gods

      London: Issued by the O.T.O.,, 1936. The Official Organ of the A. A. Quarto. Original cream-coloured cloth, gilt lettered spine and front cover, untrimmed. 2 colour plates of an Egyptian stele, diagrams and illustrations in the text, facsimile MS. of Crowley's The Book of the Law in pocket at end (in three sections numbered 1-22, 1-22, 1-21). Spine rolled, foxing to top edges, "bloom" of foxing on pp. 132-33. A very good copy, without the errata slip but with the scarce original order form loosely inserted. First edition, first impression, very scarce: Copac lists just 6 copies in British and Irish institutional libraries (British Library, Warburg Institute, Oxford, National Library of Scotland, National Trust, Wellcome Library), and OCLC adds another dozen copies worldwide. According to OCLC "although issued as volume 3, number 3, of the Equinox (September 1936), this is a separate title by Crowley." Gerald Yorke's bibliography of Crowley, printed in John Symonds's The Great Beast: The Life of Aleister Crowley (1951), describes three variants of the Equinox appearing in 1936: (a) described as a "subscribers' edition", (b) the current version, and (c) with a slip pasted over the date on the title page changing it to 1937. "In 1937 [sic] Crowley issued The Equinox of the Gods, a work containing the text of Liber Legis and a brief history of his magical career, or ascent to the thrones of the Secret Chiefs. Both sides of the stele of Ankh-f-n-Khonsu are reproduced in colour and facsimile sheets of the original MS. of Liber Legis are tucked in a folder at the back of the book... it is a splendid production. On the evening of Christmas Day Crowley, with Brother Volo Intelligere, in the course of an extensive pub-crawl, gathered a Jew, an Indian, a Negro, and a Malayan. They all proceeded to Cleopatra's Needle on the London Embankment, where, at precisely 6.22 a.m., as the Sun entered Capricornus, The Beast pronounced: 'Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. I, Ankh-f-n-Khonsu, the Priest of the Princes, present you, as representatives of your race, with The Book of the Law. It is the charter of universal freedom for every man and woman in the world. Love is the law, love under will.' He then handed round copies of The Equinox of the Gods and went home to bed with a hangover" (John Symonds, The Great Beast: The Life of Aleister Crowley, p. 293).

        Chaucer A.B.C

      Paris: The Obelisk Press,, 1936. Being a hymn to the Holy Virgin in an English version by Geoffrey Chaucer from the French of Guillaume de Deguilleville. Preface by Louis Gillet. Quarto. Original pale blue wrappers, titles to front cover in blue. Housed in the publisher's pale blue and silver chemise and slipcase, with printed paper label to spine. Wrappers a little toned to edges, endleaves lightly foxed, the slipcase slightly torn with some minor spotting. A superb copy. First edition, limited issue. Number 80 of 300 copies printed on Arches mould-made vellum paper. A scarce copy of the alphabet book with illuminated initials by Lucia Joyce (1907-1982). "Joyce arranged without [Lucia's] knowledge to have her lettrines published at his expense in A Chaucer ABC and in his own Pomes Penyeach" (Chester G. Anderson, James Joyce and his world). The design of illuminated letters was one of a number of different paths she pursued at various times, probably in imitation of her father's life as a creative artist: others included singing, dancing and writing. During the 1930s James Joyce consulted with various physicians about her deteriorating mental state, including Carl Jung; she was eventually diagnosed with schizophrenia.

        LITTLE TIM AND THE BRAVE SEA CAPTAIN

      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].
