      (ZŸrich), Bollmann [1936]. - Kl.-4¡. 43 S. Mit zahlreichen teils ganzs. Abb. und 4 doppelblattgrossen farbigen Aufstellbildern von Walt Disney. Orig.-Halbleinenbd. (RŸcken fachmŠnnisch erneuert, leicht fleckig, etwas berieben, HDeckel mit kleiner Klebespur). (= Micky-Maus-WunderbŸcher). - Der ZŸricher Verleger Ernst Bollmann wurde Mitte der drei§iger Jahre auf die im Zeitungsformat gehaltene italienische Mickey Mouse - Zeitschrift Topolino aufmerksam. Walt DisneyÕs Comic-Figuren waren beim deutschsprachigen Publikum vom Film her bereits bekannt und beliebt, soda§ eine regelmŠ§ige deutsche Ausgabe der Micky Maus erfolgversprechend erschien. Im Dezember 1936 erschien die erste deutschsprachige Micky Maus - Zeitschrift. Die Zeitschrift brachte - wohl insbesondere wegen der schlechten Wirtschaftslage nicht den erhofften Erfolg und die Micky Maus - Zeitung wurde bereits kurze Zeit spŠter mit der Nr. 18 (zusammen mit der Null-Nummer also insgesamt 19 Ausgaben) im September 1937 wieder eingestellt. Zeitgleich mit der Micky Maus - Zeitung erschienen im Micky Maus Verlag Bollmann sieben sogenannte WunderbŸcher, von denen vorliegendes Exemplar das dritte ist. Mit den WunderbŸchern beabsichtigte der Verlag, den Figuren Walt DisneyÕs Bewegung und damit Leben zu verleihen und mit den BŸchern ein Bindeglied zwischen den Bildgeschichten (Comics) und den Filmen Walt DisneyÕs zu schaffen.Exemplare dieser WunderbŸcher (noch dazu gut erhaltene) sind insgesamt recht selten. Die Mickey - Maus Zeitschrift und die WunderbŸcher sind zum einen ein besonderes StŸck deutsch-schweizerischer Verlagsgeschichte und zum anderen ein wichtiges Glied in der Geschichte der Lebenden BŸcher nach dem ersten Weltkrieg. - Im Falz sauber mit Leinenstreifen verstŠrkt, stellenweise etwas fingerfleckig, 2 Aufstellbilder mit geklebten Reparaturstellen. - Laub, 80 (1937).

        The Institution of Property: A Study of the Development, Substance and Arrangement of the System of Property in Modern Anglo-American Law

      Longmans, Green and Co., New York 1936 - A very good copy of the stated first hard cover edition, lacking the dust-jacket. This was the personal copy of Yale Brozen, the noted Chicago School economist, and it bears his name-stamp (though not his signature) atop the front free endpaper: "Professor Yale Brozen / The School of Business / The Univiversity of Chicago." A bit of foxing/age-spotting to page edges of the volume, else the text is wholly unmarked, pristine, and the binding still rather fresh in appearance, with slight fading to the gilt lettering on the spine, as from normal handling. A sharp copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      - From 1936 onwards the educationalist, publisher and politician Sir (Isaac) James Pitman (1901-1985) was in the habit of sending out a Christmas card accompanied by an etching by Cyril H.

        Turn, Magic Wheel

      Farrar & Rinehart, New York 1936 - Farrar & Rinehart, New York, 1936. Hardcover. First edition. Good book with new endpapers in very rare, good, restored dust jacket with some paper lining inside the jacket. By consensus the best novel on New York's bohemian life by this satirical, proto-feminist novelist who has recently been rediscovered. Gore Vidal, whose critical essay helped restore her fame, called her a better satirist than Twain and said she was "our best comic novelist." Ernest Hemingway once told her she was his "favorite living novelist" -- although she was not averse to poking fun at Hemingway himself, which she did in her novel, *The Wicked Pavilion*. Novelist Lisa Zeidner, in a review of the Tim Page biography of Powell in *The New York Times Book Review*, said that "she is wittier than Dorothy Parker, dissects the rich better than F. Scott Fitzgerald, is more plaintive than Willa Cather in her evocation of the heartland and has a more supple control of satirical voice than Evelyn Waugh, the writer to whom she's most often compared." Powell was an archetypal free spirit, living much of her life in Greenwich Village, taking -- and flaunting -- lovers frequently although she was married, and mercilessly skewering the postures and foibles of an array of New York types, from bohemian artists to wealthy tycoons.

        Turn Magic Wheel

      Farrar & Rinehart, New York 1936 - Despite the aforementioned flaws, it bears mentioning that the jacket is completely unrestored, and jacketed copies of this book in any condition are quite scarce. Powell is one of the unsung satirists of American fiction, whose work in recent years has enjoyed renewed interest. First Printing. Octavo (20cm.); light beige linen over boards, titles and design stamped in red and blue on the spine and front cover; red topstain; dustjacket; 281pp. Slight lean, with large dampstain to left edge of rear board, extending into upper edge of textblock; about Very Good. The unclipped dustjacket has general wear, including some shallow chipping at the spine ends, a vertical crease running the length of the spine, and a few edge tears, with corresponding dampstaining and bleed-through on the rear panel; just Very Good.

        Autograph Letter, signed ("Marie Laurencin") to "Mon cher Paul"

      Biot, [France], n.d. [probably summer 1936] - Laurencin visits her neighbor on the Riviera, Somerset Maugham, in preparation for painting his portrait. Maugham owned four Laurencin paintings and had them displayed in his dining room. Laurencin's letter reads, in part, "Hier après-midi visite à Somerset Maugham - quelle jolie maison et la salle à manger toute Laurencin - blanche avec Tableaux." Morgan notes of the portrait, "It was not a good likeness. She had made Maugham look like a fawn-eyed romantic than a hardworking writer in his sixties" (Morgan, Maugham: A Biography, p. 394) 12mo. 2 pages pen and ink. Fine, in red cloth chemise [Attributes: Hard Cover]
