        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

      The Macmillan Company, 1936., 1936. First edition. 8vo. Cloth, frontispiece, xiv, 242 pp., introduction. Divided into two major sections we find a strong emphasis on the songs, especially reels, work songs, hollers, the blues, the talkin' blues, ballads, and a miscellany of both white influences and pardon songs. Lead Belly, a double murderer, sung his way to pardons in the Texas and Louisiana Penitentiaries. He spent twelve years on penitentiary farms working in the field, singing and "hollering" under the gun and whip. Through his music you have the background of "jazz," the history of popular and folk music among southern Afro-Americans. His blues, his ballads, his work-songs sum up the observations, attitudes and opinions of a large part of the southern Afro-American population. This is the book of Lead Belly---a creative genius among Afro-American folk artists. His story is told in terms of tunes, texts, and guitar accompaniments. It contains biographical material and annotation of the songs in his own words. Following Lead Belly's release from prison in 1934, John and Alan Lomax sought to manage Lead Belly's career as a performer. John A. Lomax brought Lead Belly to New York from the South, after he had sung his way out of prison, and has worked with him compiling and editing his songs and story. No previous substantial biography of a Black musician prior to the publication of this book, which was a commercial failure at the time and received a long review in the New York Times. The book still stands as one of the best biographies of a black musician. Lead Belly spent the last fifteen years of his life performing, influencing the music scene in blues, and eventually rock 'n' roll. Light offsetting to front and rear endpapers, a few front end pages lightly foxed, else a very good, internally clean copy in dust jacket with small chips to the spine ends and extremities. Scarce and elusive copy of an important book.

        [Hand-drawn and illustrated poster]: Don't Forget Your Number. Have It Tattooed On Now

      1936. Hand-drawn and illustrated poster on thick cardboard. Measuring 20.5" x 13.75". Some soiling and tack-holes in the corners, a little waviness on the cardboard, very good. A crudely lettered promotional tattoo art poster with three variant flash designs, all bearing the date 1936, urging Social Security Card recipients to have their numbers tattooed on themselves. The first Social Security numbers were issued in November of 1936 and created a certain amount of anxiety around this scheme to create a national identity system. According to DeMello in Bodies of Inscription: A Cultural History of the Modern Tattoo Community (Duke University Press, 2000): "...men and women flocked to tattoo shops to have their number tattooed on them." Perhaps the most evocative illustration of this is in Dorthea Lange's photograph "Unemployed lumber worker goes with his wife to the bean harvest. Note social security number tattooed on his arm" (FSA-OWI Collection, Library of Congress, August, 1939). This placard is a splendid example of a naive American aesthetic object, with its artwork clearly bearing a 1936 date, a direct link to the earliest days of the Social Security program, making this a compelling primary document of Depression-era social history. .

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1936–7 - 3 volumes, octavo. Original yellow cloth, titles to spines in turquoise. With the dust jackets. Excellent copies in the dust jackets with very light wear to the extremities. Ticket of the Dutch department store Magasin Du Nord to each front pastedown. First edition, first impressions of the first three novels by the undeservedly obscure James Curtis, whose works rivalled those of his contemporaries Graham Greene and Christopher Isherwood. Curtis, after a middle class upbringing, embraced leftist politics and turned to the underworld, writing novels about criminals, prostitutes, and boxers. After the 1930s he began a slide into obscurity, and today is one of British literature's great "missing persons". These novels are scarce in jackets, and a set in this condition is a rarity.

Chip on front of dj at top edge. A small Budapest bookseller's label on the inside front cover. This volume is signed by two of the short story authors, Frigyes Karinthy, and Jozsef Tersanszky, and a third author with an unidentifiable signature, and dated 29/9/37. Karinthy was a Hungarian author, playwright, journalist and poet who is known as the originator of the idea of "six degrees of separation", which he first elaborated in the 1929 story "Chains". This concept posits that every person on Earth is connected through a chain of friends or acquaintances to every other person on Earth by no more than six intermediaries, or degrees. Karinthy is also known for "Voyage to Faremido", which is a continuation of Swift's adventures of Gulliver, and "Capillaria", a satire of the struggle between the sexes. & This volume is a selection of thirty short stories by thirty Hungarian authors; introducing some of them to the English reading public. Translated into English by Lawrence Wolfe and with an Introduction by Alexander Korda.
