Ungezwungen nutzte er Bestandteile theologischer u. magischer Weltbilder. - Umschlag geringfügig fleckig u. mit kl. Randläsuren; Einband leicht bestossen u. fleckig; Vorsatz mit kl. handschrftl. Kürzel u. beigelegter Todesanzeige von Perutz; im hinteren Vorsatz montierter O-Fotoabzug, der Perutz u. Gefährtin in alpenländischer Tracht zeigt, sonst ein gutes Expl. - Seltene EA.

        "Coeurs volants" Cahiers d'art. 11e année, 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 mathématique. Objets naturels. Objets sauvages. Objets trouvés. Objets irrationnels. Objets ready made. Objets interprétés. Objets incorporés. 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.

        The Romance of El Camino Real, With Authentic Kaloprints Attesting to the Period of Construction (1769-1830), The Period of Depletion (1835-), and Partial Preservation of the Historic California Missions

      Los Angeles, CA:: Kaloprint Corporation,, 1936. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. LIMITED EDITION of 1,000 copies. 4to. 13 3/8 x 10 1/2 inches. Unpaginated. [122] pp. Registration and Dedication Pages left blank, 2 vignettes on the title page, list of the missions by date of dedication, what follows are a series of 25 openings with descriptive text on the versos, tissue guards, and a Kaloprint image on the rectos (text facing illustration) of Father Serra, the mission buildings, manuscript documents, and Indian survivors of the missions; text clean, unmarked. Blind- and gilt-stamped brown leather, this copy has been neatly re-backed with brown cloth that matches the leather; binding square and tight. Laid in are 3 ephemeral pieces from the Bureau, including a typed note on Bureau letterhead telling how to have an ancestor's portrait mounted on the dedication page, a small bi-fold "Value Received" which details the benefits of membership in the Bureau, and a certificate that states that Sonya Carlson Doud, is a sustaining 5-year member of the Bureau. SCARCE. Very Good. The California Landmarks and Historical Records Bureau, Inc. was incorporated in 1931 as a California non-profit organization. Its purpose was to gain legislative and public support to preserve "the romance" of California by passing laws for historic preservation, and marking of historic landmarks. It hired newspapermen Sherman Danby (who signed Sonya Doud's certificate of membership) and Frederic N. Shovey as Director and Publicity Directors, respectively. It was headquartered in Sacramento, but its Southern California Office was in the Douglas Building in Los Angeles; it began by organizing prominent women in Southern California, and then made an organizing tour of the state in 1932. One of its benefits of membership is this volume extolling the Romance of El Camino Real, with its pictures of the California Missions. The Bureau actually assumed the care of several missions, and in 1933 was able to secure Federal Assistance in reconstructing certain missions when the National Director of Work Relief and Special Projects, Jacob Baker, authorized relief labor to be used in Mission reconstruction. See: The San Bernardino Sun, September 13, 1933, page 1, and The Santa Cruz Sentinel, January 22, 1933, page 5.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED

      St James' Club nd but c. July 1936 - One page of club notepaper, to S.P.B. Mais, author and journalist, thanking Mais for his congratulations on receiving the Hawthornden Prize of Edmund Campion, "I made no bones about my delight.", commenting on Mais connection to the Petres, "Of course I know their history well + have met several of them", and agreeing to sign Mais's copies of Campion and Handful of Dust. S.P.B.Mais had been Alec Waugh's influential English master at Sherborne. It is believed that Mais encouraged Alec to publish his controversial novel The Loom of Youth, in which the character of Ferrers is based on Mais. Two years later Mais's own novel, Interlude, also published by Chapman & Hall, so closely detailed life at Sherborne, that Mais was forced to resign as a master.

Hi, We recently purchased the Wisdens from the Bolton Library and were pleasently surprised by their condition, they are Ex-Library and have stamps etc to them but they are priced very low so a great way to buy a cheap hardback that may be better than you think. This lot is a 1936 Original Hardback Wisden in Good+ Condition, This Wisden is a very good book for an ex library, 1933-37 are never great but the gilts are better than most on this book. The boards are a touch dark but the hinges are very good. Photoplate is excellent. The library factor are : Circle to the spine cloth, stamp to pastedown and a couple of pages, stamp to page block and a white square fixed to the last page. Not too bad. Nicely priced.

        The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money.

Octavo, finely bound in full morocco, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, raised bands, gilt ruled to the front and rear panels, marbled endpapers. In fine condition, small stamps to the copyright page. The General Theory ranks with Smith's Wealth of Nations as an intellectual event and with Malthus' Essay on Population as a guide for public policy. The London Review of Books has grouped The General Theory "among the glories of modern publishing, edited with exemplary authority and lack of fuss." Many innovations of The General Theory remain central to modern macroeconomics. It was placed on Time's 2001 top one-hundred non-fiction books written in English since 1923 and The Times Literary Supplement 100 greatest books of the twentieth century.

        [20 TYPED LETTERS SIGNED from H.L. Mencken to [Arnold Francis Gates] Gates (1914-1993), each dated and signed on Mencken's distinctive horizontal half sheet letterhead, typed on one side only. Baltimore: July 3, 1936 to September 4, 1942.].

      Baltimore,: 1936-42., 1936. 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches (each). Gates was an Abraham Lincoln enthusiast, poet, author, and became a scholar of Civil War and Lincoln history. He was an officer of the New York City Civil War Round Table. These letters are all addressed to Arnold Gates and cover a variety of subjects. The tone is friendly, but terse. Both followed and perhaps donated to a prisoner named Joseph Russell, who was first a robber and then a forger and plagiarist. Mencken and Gates occasionally are light-hearted, such as M's thoughts on persons born in September (including himself, naturally). He declines membership to the Roughriders Club "I have a set rule against joining anything." One letter addresses the abdication of Edward VIII. Another makes disparaging remarks about Gertrude Stein and T.S. Eliot. "H.L. Mencken (1880-1956), journalist, author and critic, worked as a reporter and drama critic for the Baltimore Morning Herald from 1899 to 1906. From 1906 to the end of his working career he was at the Baltimore Evening Sun where he wrote the column "Free Lance" in which he expressed his views on literature, politics and society. He was book review editor for the magazine Smart Set from 1908 to 1924 when he started a new magazine, American Mercury, a journal of sociology and politics. He retired from American Mercury in 1933 and concentrated on writing for the Baltimore Sun and encouraging young literary talent. He also wrote books and articles including his classic, The American Language, which he first published in 1918 and continued revising until 1948." - NYPL. See: S. T. Joshi, H.L.
