        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 Bertram's partner was calligrapher and Germanist Ernst Glöckner, in memory of whom Das weiße Pferd was printed; their unpublished correspondence from 1906 until Glöckner's death in 1934 amounts to some 5000 love letters and cards.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.

        Photograph Album of a Participant.

      [Berlin, 1936]. - 8vo. Oblong album, leather over cream paper boards, string-tied, silver title and Olympic design to front, twine stitching to perimeter. Contains 56 black and white photographs measuring 310 x 240 mm, mounted with clear photo corners, each leaf separated with webbed tissue guard. Two additional photographs loosely placed within. Some loss to leather spine, verso only, otherwise in very good condition, a pleasing album with crisp images. These images, captured firsthand by a participating athlete in the Olympic games, center around the Berlin Olympic Stadium, where the athletic and track events took place, revealing the photographer's sport. We also find images of runners on a practice course, a high jumper, an equestrian event, spectators, security officials, and guards, some of the latter sporting binoculars for surveillance, others armed with long rifles. Olympic monuments include the Marathon Gate pillars from which was hung the iconic five ring symbol, the enormous receptacle for the Olympic Flame, and one of the sculptures of athletes which today are the subject of discord by some. City streets are saturated with political propaganda flags, whilst symbolic Olympic flags make but a mere discreet dispersing appearance among them. Two views show an airship blimp with the Germany's new national symbol hovering overhead, while a few inner city views show athletes running with the torch ceremoniously for the civilians. Elements of domination, superiority and mastery are captured two-fold in this unusual album of images, first and foremost in the display of a grand competition event of athletic champions from around the world, and secondly, in the less than subtle propaganda that would inevitably pierce the otherwise peaceful images of global collaboration and common ground. Rare to find an album by a professional athlete yet an amateur photographer of these historic Olympic Games. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Sagittarius Rising

      New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company,, 1936. Octavo. Original blue cloth, silver lettered spine. With the dust jacket. Spine of jacket only lightly faded, merest touch of foxing to top and fore-edges. First US edition, first printing, an excellent copy of one of the classics of Great War literature, widely considered as the finest flying memoir of the war, and here offered in the exceptionally uncommon dust jacket. Presentation copy from the author, inscribed on the front free endpaper: "A rare & early edition of this book, to join the library of George Bannister, from Cecil Lewis, 20.1.73". Also enclosed is a typed letter signed to the same recipient, rather curt and requesting "sufficient International Postage Stamp Coupons to cover the cost of returning the books to you"; airmail paper dated 9 December 1972, from Corfu, with integral envelope. "At seventeen, standing 6 feet 4 inches tall and equipped with a precocious intelligence, Lewis lied about his age to join the Royal Flying Corps. He celebrated his eighteenth birthday in France, flying patrols over the western front at a time when the average life expectancy of a pilot was three weeks. On 1 July 1916 he flew the first patrol of the Somme offensive and witnessed the mile-high column of earth thrown up by the detonation of mines under the German positions. Later he duelled with the 'circus' of Manfred von Richthofen and was the last man to see the aircraft of Albert Ball VC, the allied ace who vanished in a bank of cloud. Lewis also hunted Gotha airships over London by moonlight, and in 1917 he was awarded the Military Cross for continuous bravery" (ODNB). On publication, the book was reviewed in the New Statesman by George Bernard Shaw, who Lewis had encountered while deputy director of programmes at the BBC, and who had permitted him make the first film adaptation of one of his plays. Shaw's high praise guaranteed the book's immediate success: "This is a book everyone should read. It is the autobiography of an ace, and no common ace either … This prince of pilots … had a charmed life in every sense of the word".

        Owl's Clover

      New York: The Alcestis Press, 1936. First Edition. Paperback. 4/4. New York: The Alcestis Press, 1936. VG++ or Near Fine in VG++ or Near Fine jacket Signed by Author Printed orange wrapper over stiff wrapper. A lovely copy. This edition is notoriously fragile and most of the usual defects are absent here. The spine lettering is clear, with no sunning. Because the soft paper wrapper covers on this edition extended beyong the boundaries of the text block, some paper loss to the foot and head of the spine is almost inevitable. Here that loss is very minimal, just a tiny chip on the top and another on the bottom, the latter causing a 1/4 inch closed tear on one seam. There is one additional 1/4 inch closed tear on the jacket. These are minor nicks. AND that is it. No other splits or chips at all. No markings of any kind inside or out, just a touch of old handling discoloration. Colors are bright and clear. This is number 15 of eighty-five numbered copies on Strathmore all-rag paper, in addition to twenty copies on handmade paper numbered in Roman, all signed by the author. Nice clear signature by Stevens. Overall, VG++ or Near Fine. Book comes in a beautiful custom clamshell box made by the Heritage bindery in Los Angeles. Box is full Japanese cloth, burnt-orange in color (black on the edges), that nicely matches the book. Marbeled boards inside with orange highlights. The book rests on a built platform, also marbeled. Leather spine on the label. Photos available upon request.. First Edition. Paperback. 4/4.
