      Oxford: Privately printed by John Johnson at the Oxford University Press and published by Emery Walker, 1936 - 3 volumes, large folio. Original green cloth, spines lettered in gilt, top edges trimmed, others untrimmed. Spine ends a little bumped, some markings to covers, discolouration to front cover of vol. I. A very good set.

An enormous and finely illustrated production detailing the collection of Indian miniatures of Alfred Beatty (1875–1968), a copper mining tycoon who built up one of the world's greatest collections of western and oriental manuscripts. The cataloguing of Beatty's collection of Indian miniatures was originally undertaken by Thomas Walker Arnold. Upon his death in June 1930 the project was delayed, until James Vere Stuart Wilkinson resumed the process, including new additions to the collection. The manuscripts and miniatures detailed represent some of the finest products of the Mughal court painters from the 16th century onwards, alongside some of the work of artists from the provinces of the Mughal empire.

He founded the Futurist magazines "Il Centauro" and "La Rivista", signed the Futurist manifesto ""Pesi, misure e prezzi del genio artistico" in 1914, and in 1916 co-founded with Corra L'Italia Futurista, the flagship publication of the Futurist movement.

        Le Spectacle Est Dans La Rue (The Poster Art of A.M. Cassandre)

      Draeger Freres, Paris 1936 - A very solid copy of this lovely 1936 promotional album, showcasing the incomparable poster art of A.M. Cassandre (1901-1968), "which expressed his insights into the role that motion and scale in urban environments played in modern design". Published by Draeger Freres of Paris, the 15 sumptuous, full-page reproductions (4 of which are in lavish, vivid color) have been beautifully executed and seem to pop off the pages. The album is tight and VG in its spiral-bound, stiff cardboard wrappers, with light scuffing to the panels and a small amount of light staining at the front panel's lower-edge. Still though, attractive and very presentable. And internally, sharp as could be, with just a touch of wear to the pastedowns but with no markings of any kind to the plates. Tall quarto, Preface by the formidable Blaise Cendrars. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money.

      London, Macmillan, 1936. - 8vo. XII, 403 pp. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt. First edition, first impression of what is generally considered the author's magnum opus, the book widely credited with creating the terminology and shape of modern macroeconomics. 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). "In 1936, although Roosevelt's 'New Deal' had utilized Keynesian prescriptions, 'The General Theory' ('on which', says D.N.B., 'his fame as the outstanding economist of his generation must rest') threw the economists of the world into two violently opposed camps. Yet eight years later Keynes was to dominate the international conference at Bretton Woods, out of which came the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank; and his influence during the ensuing decades, even on his theoretical opponents, has been such that a highly placed American official recently remarked that 'we are all Keynesians today'" (PMM). - Very light discolouring of upper margin (ca 3 cm) of front side, a fine copy.

        Two Boys go Sailing. Illustrated by Brigid Ganly.

      London, J.M.Dent & Sons Ltd. 1936 - First Edition. 8°. Frontispiece - Illustration, VIII, 246 pages with a (partly fictitious) map of Roaringwater Bay on the pastedown and endpaper and 12 illustrations throughout the book. Original, illustrated Hardcover. Excellent condition of this scarce book with only minor signs of external wear to the binding. This is one of the rarest publications on West Cork, Baltimore and Roaringwater Bay. Edward Conor Marshall O'Brien (3 November 1880 – 18 April 1952) was an intellectual, Irish aristocrat, republican, nationalist, pioneer in modern maritime theory, owner and captain of one of the first boats to sail under the tri-colour of the Irish Free State, during his circumnavigation in the Saoirse. He was a grandson of the Fenian William Smith O'Brien. Reputedly this was the first small boat to sail around Cape Horn. This is slightly unfair to Joshua Slocum, the Bostonian, who was the first single-handed yachtsman to successfully pass this way (in 1895) although in the end, extreme weather forced him to use some of the inshore routes between the channels and islands and it is believed he may not have actually passed outside the Horn proper. Given the scale of Slocum's achievement it might be considered unfair to deprive him of the honour! Although it was nearly 30 years later, a strict definition of "the first small boat to sail around outside Cape Horn" could indeed cover the 42-foot (13 m) yacht Saoirse, sailed by Conor O'Brien with three hands, who rounded it during a circumnavigation of the world between 1923 and 1925 It was the first boat flying the Irish tri-colour to enter many of the world's ports and harbours. He was a ship builder/designer (notable boats include the Saoirse and AK Ilen ), gun runner for the Irish Volunteers during the war of independence in Ireland, captain of a ship sailing in the merchant navy during WWII.

        Coeurs volants" Cahiers d'art. 11e annà e, no. 1-2. L'objet

      Paris: Editions Cahiers d'Art, 1936 - The rarest of issues of Zervos' great periodical in a rather poor copy. 94 splendid plates & ills. (3 color). iv + 68 pp. Stiff paper covers. 32 x 24.5 cm. The subtitle promises (and delivers) "Objets mathà matique. Objets naturels. Objets sauvages. Objets trouvà s. Objets irrationnels. Objets ready made. Objets interprà tà s. Objets incorporà s. Objets mobiles." Duchamp designed the famous cover, "Coeurs volants" with its nested hearts in vibrating red and blue especially for this issue. Among the many other artists illustrated are Man Ray (12 rich black-and-white photos in one article and many in others), Magritte, Bellmer, Giacometti, Picasso, Calder, Ernst, and Meret Oppenheim's "Fur-lined teacup," nearly a year before its startling appearance at MoMA in the show "Fantastic art, Dada, and Surrealism." **The condition of this copy leaves much to be desired. It is disbound, with the covers detached and only the top end of the spine present bearing the identification "1936 No. 1-2." The front cover is dulled, faded near the top and spine edge, and with several spots and other small defects (see photo). The rear cover is better but faded at the spine and creased diagonally at the bottom. There are a few small turned upper corners in the first few pages. The latter half has slight rippling from damp, but no pages are stuck or torn. Vanishingly and deservedly rare in any condition, and priced accordingly. **Free domestic or international shipping with direct order.

        Work for the Winter: More or Less for Christmas

      privately printed for the author n.d.[1936], n.p. - First edition, sole impression - number of copies unknown. Original cream wrappers printed in black. A selection of poems by Vanessa and Clive Bell's son - somewhat in the same vein as the latter's "Ad Familiares" (1918) - done up as a Christmas greeting. Five of the poems were published the following year by the Hogarth Press as "Work For The Winter and Other Poems" with one of them, `The River Flows' having been revised. Vanessa Bell's copy with her initials in pencil (and a small, gold stick-on star) to the upper wrapper. Julian Bell volunteered as an ambulance driver during the Spanish Civil War and died from shrapnel wounds a month after his arrival. His mother's hair reportedly turned white overnight when she received the news. Virginia Woolf later wrote: "The last time I saw Julian was at Clive's, two days before he went to Spain. I was determined not to think about the risks, because, subconsciously I was sure he would be killed; that is, I had a couchant unexpressed certainty, from Thoby's death I think; a legacy of pessimism, which I have decided never to analyze." That decision appears to have been a mistake every bit as bad as Bell's reasons for going to Spain, which included: " . . . the usefulness of war experience in the future and the prestige one would gain in literature and - even more - Left politics." Two copies are located in UK libraries - the British Library and The National Trust (Sissinghurst) - and eight in North America. Some browning and soiling including some light water-staining to edges of upper wrapper but a very good copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
