        Peer Gynt

      1936. Rare Publisher's SamplePreceding The First Edition[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. IBSEN, Henrik. Peer Gynt. A Dramatic Poem by Henrik Ibsen. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott Co. [1936]. Publisher's salesman's sample copy (preceding the first edition). Large octavo (9 13/16 x 7 7/16 inches; 249 x 189 mm.). 30 pp. Title-page printed in green and black. Two full-page color plates with descriptive tissue guards and two half-page black and white illustrations. Original gilt decorated brown cloth. Original pictorial endpapers. Original printed color pictorial dust jacket (with "Harrap" on the spine) with a neatly repaired tear on front near spine. A fine copy in a near fine dust jacket.A great rarity. These were obviously produced in minimal quantity for the publisher's salesmen to solicit advance orders from bookshops. The 'list' of illustrations leaf states "[There will be Twelve Plates in Colour]" The vignettes on the half-title and title-page in the published edition are printed in a much lighter and brighter green. The list of books Illustrated by Arthur Rackham on the verso of the half-title is very different from the published edition. The two color plates are: "Peer and the Woman in Green" [in the published edition this plate faces p. 66 and is titled "Peer follows the Woman in Green"] and "Anitra's Dance" [in the published edition this plate faces p. 148].Although this sample has the Lippincott imprint, the verso of the title-page says "Printed in Great Britain"."In over fifty years of specializing in the illustrated works of Arthur Rackham I have never seen another one of these."

        Marlborough: His Life and Times, Volume III

      London: George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd., 1936. First edition, only printing. Hardcover. This is a jacketed British first edition, only printing of the third volume of Churchill's Marlborough - a premium copy suitable for filling a superior first edition set. Churchill's monumental biography of his great ancestor, John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough, was initially conceived a full 40 years before publication of the fourth and final volume. Churchill originally considered the idea of the biography in 1898, returning to it in earnest in 1928. Marlborough ultimately took 10 years of research and writing and is the most substantial published work of Churchill's "wilderness years" in the 1930s. The final volume was published on the eve of the Second World War in 1938. Richard Langworth says "To understand the Churchill of the Second World War, the majestic blending of his commanding English with historical precedent, one has to read Marlborough." The first edition of Marlborough was originally issued in four volumes and was very well received - both critically and aesthetically. The first edition is physically impressive, bound in plum cloth with beveled edges, the Marlborough coat of arms in gilt on the front cover, a gilt text block top edge, and a profusion of illustrations, maps, and plans. Here is the first British edition, only printing of Volume III, a fine copy in a near fine dust jacket, scarce thus. This third book carries the story forward to the end of the campaign of 1708. The volume is a substantial 608 pages with 24 illustrations, 2 document facsimiles, 3 color maps, and 64 other maps and plans. The plum cloth binding retains vivid color and is square, clean, and tight with bright gilt, sharp corners, and nicely rounded spine. We note only a hint of sunning to the top edge where sun slipped past the top of the jacket. The contents remain bright and crisp. No spotting. No previous ownership marks. Bright top edge gilt. The book feels unread. The dust jacket is bright, unclipped, and complete, with only trivial wear to the spine ends. Spine toning is minimal, with only a barely discernible hint of color shift between the jacket spine and faces. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A97.2(III).a, Woods/ICS A40(aa), Langworth p.166.

        Important Typed Letter Signed on embossed personal letterhead

      1936 - 1 page, 10.5 x 7.25 inches, no place, June 16, 1936. Written to Frederic R. Coudert, a powerful New York attorney, whose firm represented Great Britain's interests in North America for almost a century, giving his views on the latest chapter of British appeasement towards Nazi Germany, in part: ".I agree with you that the world is in a very dangerous condition generally. The recent action in the British Parliament shows a recession in the whole theory of international cooperation which I would never have believed possible. Incidentally, it rather confirms a memorandum that I gave to President Wilson, suggesting to him that they should omit all sanctions and elements of force as being impractical of use and therefore dangerous." Hoover strongly opposed the severe sanctions levied against Germany in the Versailles Treaty and felt that its vindictive nature would result in another World War. Natural folds and several creases; very good(-) condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Le opere economiche

      Bologna: Nicola Zanichelli Editore,, 1936-37. 3 volumes, octavo (191 × 130 mm). Near-contemporary dark green cloth, brown morocco labels to spines lettered in gilt. Tips a little rubbed; an excellent, bright, set. First edition of Barone's collected works, including his Pricipi di economia politica (fist published in 1908). Innovative and free from ideological motivation, Barone was a pioneer of the economic theory of index numbers, as noted by Samuelson: "by avoiding all mention of utility and indeed without introducing even the notion of indifference curves, Barone was able to break new ground along the lines which have in recent years become associated with the economic theory of index numbers" (The New Palgrave, I, p. 195). Barone's place in the history of economic theory was assured with the publication of Hayek's translation of his paper Il Ministro della produzione nella stato collettivista in 1935, marking him out as one of the founders of the "pure theory of a socialist economy", together with von Wieser and Pareto (Schumpter, History of Economic Analysis, p. 986). Institutionally scarce in the UK (Copac and OCLC locate only three copies, held at Oxford, Cambridge, and LSE) though it is well-represented worldwide.

COPY #130 - as noted by the handwritten notice at the bottom of page i. With 15 different line drawings reproduced throughout the text. Jung's Tavistock Lectures, delivered in London in 1935, were meant to be, as he said in his introductory remarks, "a short outline of certain fundamental conceptions of psychology" (p. 1 of this book) - an outline that he proposed to break down into two main "chapters." We have two main chapters to deal with, namely, on the one side the concepts concerning the structure of the unconscious mind and of the so-called contents of the unconscious; on the other, the methods used in the investigation of contents originating in the unconscious psychical processes. The second chapter has three parts, first, the word association method; second, the method of dream analysis; and third, the method of active imagination. (p. 2 of this book)Ronald Hayman, in his A Life of Jung (W. W. Norton, New York, 1999), devotes six full pages to this seminar noting that it was here "that [Jung] introduced the subject of archetypes and the collective unconscious " (p. 334). An original Multigraph copy with single-sided pages - the printer Belsize Typewriting Bureau 29, Howitt Road, London, N.W.3 Primrose 2846." Bound using three large staples. The covers are boards with a brownish printed weave pattern and the spine covered with green canvas. The covers are lightly worn with a paper label affixed to the top-center of the front cover with the written information: "Fundamental P. Concepts London 1936". With the name "Ethel Kulshaw" hand-written in pencil across the top of the front free end paper beneath which she has also written "New York 1936." Overall, a lovely copy of this extremely scarce numbered printing of Jung's Tavistock Lectures. ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition]

      London: John Lane, The Bodley Head, 1936. First authorized English edition; one of 100 copies signed by Joyce (of a total edition of 1000) printed on mould-made paper bound in vellum. 8vo, luxuriously bound in a beautiful designed binding by Eric Gill of full vellum with his gilt decorations of a bow on the upper cover, and a gilt titled spine, t.e.g. Housed in the original publishers patterned boards slipcase. 766 pp. A very fine copy. One of the most handsome we have seen. VERY IMPORTANT LITERARY FIRST. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. This an extremely impressive copy of the first authorized English edition, signed by Joyce. IT IS ALSO THE FIRST EDITION of ULYSSES PRINTED IN GREAT BRITAIN. The superb binding executed In full vellum has been especially designed for this great book. DESIGNS FOR THE BINDING, EXECUTED IN GILT WERE DESIGNED BY ERIC GILL. The typeface is extremely attractive and very readable, the printing on fine paper makes the book unusually handsome and presents what is perhaps the most beautiful printing of ULYSSES ever accomplished. Along with the text, there are a series of appendices attached including copies of the International Protest against the unauthorized and mutilated printings of ULYSSES done especially in the United States; a copy of the injunction issued to prevent Samuel Roth from continuing his piracies of ULYSSES; a copy of Joyce?s letter to Bennet Cerf concerning the promotion, legal fight and publication of ULYSSES on the author?s behalf; a copy of the decison of the US District Court which was rendered on December 6, 1933 which lifted the ban on ULYSSES and a copy of the subsequent decision of the US Court of Appeals rendered in August of the following year which upheld the original decision; a copy of the forward to the first American editon and a bibiography of the works of James Joyce. ULYSSES can be viewed as the pinnacle of the Modernist movement, and its impact on all subsequent western literature is unmistakable. Such writers as Virginia Woolf, John Dos Passos, William Faulkner, Samuel Beckett, Malcolm Lowry, and Anthony Burgess have all paid tribute, consciously or unconsciously, to Joyce's influence. Burgess as well pronounced it the greatest single work in the English literature of this century, and he is not alone in that opinion.

        Collection of six books inscribed to the author's brother Hans Georg, including: Deutsche Gestalten. Fest- und Gedenkreden, 1934. The Dedication Copy. [With:] Wartburg. Spruchgedichte, 1933. "Exemplar Nr. 2', additionally inscribed, "Ohne Gefahr keine Rettung". [And] Griecheneiland, 1934. [And] Das weiße Pferd. No. 8 of 120 copies, [1936]. [And] Straßburg. Ein Gedichtkreis, 1928. [And] Nietzsche. Versuch eine Mythologie, 1929

      Leipzig, Berlin: Insel-Verlag, etc., 1936. First editions of the first four titles, later editions of the last two titles. 7 vols. 8vo. Original publishers' bindings (cloth or paper over boards). Four titles in dust jacket and/or publisher's box. He Created the Myth of Nietzsche Ernst Bertram (1884-1957), Germanist and poet, was appointed professor of German literature and philology at the University of Cologne in 1921. His friends included Stefan George, Friedrich Gundolf and Thomas Mann; he was among Mann's closest personal friends during the war years and the 1920s. Bertram and Mann were among the co-editors of Ariadne, the 1925 Jahrbuch der Nietzsche-Gesellschaft; Mann's correspondence with Bertram has been published as Th. Mann an E. Bertram. Briefe aus den Jahren 1910-1955, ed. Inge Jens (1960). It was Bertram's study of Nietzsche that laid the groundwork for the philosopher's ascent into the Nazi pantheon. Bertram's partner was calligrapher and Germanist Ernst Glöckner, in memory of whom Das weiße Pferd was printed; their unpublished correspondence from 1906 until Glöckner's death in 1934 amounts to some 5000 love letters and cards. From the 1920s on, Bertram's poetry became increasingly mythological in its concern with the "nordische Seele des Rheinlands." He was ultimately unable to resist the Nazi movement, though he protested the destruction of the writings of Mann and Gundolf. Because of his close links to the Nazis, Bertram was dismissed from his academic post in 1946. A selection of Bertram's works with an outstanding association, each of the six volumes bearing a dated inscription to his brother Hans Georg: Deutsche Gestalten, a collection of cultural and literary essays, is the Dedication copy, inscribed "in recollection of the love of Ernst Glöckner" in June 1934, just after Glöckner's death (cloth, in dust jacket and publisher's slipcase). Das weiße Pferd, [Leipzig, 1936]. No. 8 of 120 copies privately printed as a memorial to Ernst Glöckner (parchment-backed green boards, printed labels, in printed dust jacket). Wartburg, 1933. Additionally inscribed on the half-title, "Ohne Gefahr keine Rettung" (without danger no salvation) and on the imprint, "Exemplar Nr. 2" (brown boards, printed labels). Griecheneiland, 1934 (parchment-backed blue boards, printed labels) Straßburg is present in the third, enlarged ed., 1928 (marbled boards, dust jacket printed on spine only); Bertram's profoundly influential work on Nietzsche, in the seventh, corrected ed., 1929, 18th-21st Thousand (gilt-stamped blue cloth, printed dust jacket and slipcase). Also accompanying these volumes is Gedichte, 4th, enlarged ed., 1924 (parchment-backed marbled boards, printed dust jacket).

        Negro Folk Songs As Sung By Lead Belly, "King of the Twelve-String Guitar Players of the World," Long-Time Convict in the Penitentiaries of Texas and Louisiana [signed by John Lomax and Lead Belly]

      New York: Macmillan Company, 1936. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. SIGNED BY JOHN A. LOMAX AND HUDDIE LEDBETTER. True first edition in straw colored cloth board with red lettering. John Lomax had the slightly idiosyncratic habit of signing his name right through the title page of his books, which he has done here in blue ink "Sincerely yours, John A. Lomax." Uniquely (no other copy has come to market with both signatures), Huddie Ledbetter has signed his name in full in black just below Lomax, signed (mostly under the title) as Huddie Ledbetter with a big swoosh underneath. This book came from an estate collection in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The original owner wrote her name neatly in fountain pen on the front blank and, underneath that the word "(autographed)" The contents of the book are very clean, no foxing at all. The back cover is slightly warped and a little discolored from water, no mold, no smells. Small crack on the back cover cloth, possibly from when the water dried. Front cover has a similar, very faint stain on the right side of the cover. Oddly, none of this affects the interior contents or the spine, which is bright and clear and nearly free from all wear, looks great on the shelf. Despite the water warp described, the book presents as a bright VG, still a nice copy. The signed title page is completely clean except for a tiny stain on the bottom, possibly a drop of coffee. Otherwise, again, the contents are bright and free of markings, no foxing, no soiling. I have only seen one copy signed by Lead Belly for sale in the last twenty years, and I have never seen a copy signed by both men. Very rare.

        [Maryland Marsh] Original Colorist's Model of the Derrydale Press Sporting Print

      New York: The Derrydale Press, 1936. Published in an edition of 150 (unnumbered). Aquatint engraving, from a proof before letters, trimmed, fully colored by the artist, marked in pencil "Model OK". With an example of the published print: hand-colored aquatint engraving, signed by the artist in pencil lower left. 19-1/2 x 13-1/4 inches on a larger sheet. Trimmed. Some soiling in outer margins, short chips along left edge, archival tape repair on verso of lower left corner (torn, no loss). Colorist's Model for 'Maryland Marsh' The original watercolor model prepared by the artist the use of the colorist of the Derrydale sporting aquatint of a rail bird shooting scene. John Frost (1890-1937) was the son of American artist A.B. Frost (1851-1928) and a friend of Eugene V. Connett, publisher of the Derrydale Press, whose personal collection included Maryland Marsh, the original painting commissioned by Connett in 1934. John Frost is known to have been closely involved in painting the colorists' models for the Derrydale prints of his father's paintings (published in 1933-4) and would have produced the color model for the published editon of the print. UNIQUE AND IMPORTANT SURVIVAL.
