        Story of Fedinand, The

      1936. first edition. The Story of the Young Bull who Preferred Smelling Flowers to FightingLEAF, Munro. The Story of Fedinand. Illustrated by Robert Lawson. New York: The Viking Press, 1936.First edition, first issue with "First Published September 1936" on verso of title-page. Small quarto ( 8 1/8 x 7 inches; 207 x 178 mm.). [71], [1, blank] pp.Original quarter gray cloth over pink paper boards, with white floral pattern and Ferdinand the Bull in black in center. Spine lettered in red, yellow pictorial endpapers. The two top corners very slightly bumped, otherwise near fine. Original pink paper pictorial dust jacket with similar floral pattern with large Ferdinand on front panel and small Ferdinand on rear panel. Spine faded, inner flap price clipped, a few short tears to extremities. Overall a very good copy in the original (price-clipped) dust jacket.The Story of Ferdinand (1936) is the best known work written by American author Munro Leaf (1905-1976) and illustrated by Robert Lawson (1892-1957). This wonderful children's book tells the story of the Young Ferdinand who does not enjoy butting heads with other young bulls, but prefers instead to lie under a tree smelling the flowers. His mother worries that he might be lonely and tries to persuade him to play with the other calves, but when she sees that Ferdinand is content as he is, she leaves him alone. When the calves grow up, Ferdinand turns out to be the largest and strongest of the young bulls. All the other bulls dream of being chosen to compete in the bull fight in Madrid, but Ferdinand still prefers smelling the flowers to fighting. Five men come to the pasture to choose a bull for the fights. Ferdinand is again on his own, sniffing flowers, when he accidentally sits on a bee. He runs wildly across the field, snorting and stamping. Mistaking Ferdinand for a mad bull, the men rename him Ferdinand the Fierce and take him away to Madrid. All the beautiful ladies of Madrid turn out to see the handsome matador fight Ferdinand the Fierce. However, when Ferdinand is led into the ring, he is delighted by the flowers in the ladies' hair and lies down in the middle of the ring to enjoy them, upsetting and disappointing everyone. Ferdinand is sent back to his pasture, where to this day, he is still smelling flowers.The book was released nine months before the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, and was seen by many supporters of Francisco Franco as a pacifist book. It was banned in many countries, including in Spain. In Nazi Germany, Adolf Hitler ordered the book burned, while Joseph Stalin, the leader of the Soviet Union, granted it privileged status as the only non-communist children's book allowed in Poland. India's leader Mahatma Gandhi called it his favorite book. Leaf is said to have written the story on a whim in an afternoon in 1935, largely to provide his friend, illustrator Robert Lawson (then relatively unknown) a forum in which to showcase his talents. The landscape in which Lawson placed the fictional Ferdinand is more or less real. Lawson faithfully reproduced the view of the city of Ronda in Andalusia for his illustration of Ferdinand being brought to Madrid on a cart: we see the Puente Nuevo ("New Bridge") spanning the El Tajo canyon. The Disney movie added some rather accurate views of Ronda and the Puente Romano ("Roman bridge") and the Puente Viejo ("Old bridge") at the beginning of the story, where Lawson's pictures were more free. Ronda is home to the oldest bullfighting ring in Spain that is still used; this might have been a reason for Lawson's use of its surroundings as a background for the story.

        Two Autograph letters, signed ("Felix" & "FF"), and one Typed Letter, signed ("FF"), to various recipients. [With:] Autograph Letter, signed ("Tom") from Thomas G. Corcoran to his father, forwarding these three Frankfurter letters

      Cambridge, Mass, 1936. On Harvard Law School and personal letterhead. Various sizes. In red morocco-backed clam shell box. On Harvard Law School and personal letterhead. Various sizes. "... if ever there was an organic being, it was Holmes". Collection of letters praising an address delivered by Thomas G. Corcoran in April 1936 before the Harvard Law School Association on the topic of Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. Corcoran was a former student of Frankfurter's at Harvard and had clerked for Justice Holmes in the 1920s. Frankfurter writes to congratulate and praise Corcoran, " ... The School is humming with your achievement: both faculty and students had their horizons stretched and their souls invigorated. It was a moral and esthetic triumph. I cannot adequately tell you the pride I feel in you." In a letter to Benjamin Cohen, another former student, Frankfurter implores him to have Corcoran dictate his speech before it is lost, "The place has been buzzing about it ever since, both Faculty and Students. It was an extraordinary psychological analysis of the workshop of Holmes' mind, and, of course, a penetrating interpretation of the whole man. For if ever there was an organic being, it was Holmes. And the thing had beauty and loveliness. In conception and execution it was a truly beautiful performance. It can't be recaptured. But I am appealing to you to have Tom rescue as much as can be rescued ... please do make Tom dictate just for one straight hour all that he can remember ..." Frankfurter writes to Harold Laski, an English political scientist who had taught at Harvard, "Just to tell you that not since Holmes spoke here, at 250th has anyone so moved Faculty & students as did Tom at Law Review Dinner ..." With an autograph noted from Corcoran to his father, forwarding the Frankfurter notes, "... I don't quite remember what I said. I talked without notes - but it seemed to go over well. Here are three letters - to Ben, to Harold Laski and to me from FF. A prejudiced judge - but you may enjoy reading them ...".

        Lawrence of Arabia

      Corvinus Press, 1936. Binder's copy. One of 128 numbered copies, this one unnumbered and possibly one of the 3 or an extra for the exclusive use of the printer. Set in 18 pt Centaur type with Arrigihi Italic and printed on a hand press, on hand made paper watermarks 'Hand Made' and "FJ Head' which was a watermark used by Barcham Green after they took over FJ Head papermerchants. 4to., bound by Sangorski in original half linen with hand made paper covered boards, gilt borders. Boards bit darkened, a couple of areas of rubbing and bumped at corners. Printing of two speeches about Lawrence made at lunch given in his memory a month after his death: The Artist in War and Lettersby Liddell Hart and Himself by Storrs. This would appear to be a binder's copy, and extra to the edition of 128. The binding by Sangorski is the same as other copies but without the gilt press device, which is compatible with it being a copy for practice by the binder.

        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).
