      MacMillan, Toronto 1936 - THE DEDICATION COPY OF THE FIRST STUDY OF CANADIAN-LITERATURE FROM A MODERNIST POINT OF VIEW. Collin, W. E. THE WHITE SAVANNAHS. Toronto: MacMillan, Toronto, 1936. First Edition. Green cloth. (X), 288pp. A fine lovely copy in a remarkable dustwrapper. THE DEDICATION COPY, inscribed: "from Edwin / June, 1936" after the printed dedication: " For Louise", the author's wife. This important volume has the distinction of being both "the first book length work on English-Canadian literature written from a purely critical standpoint" (Germaine Warkentin) and the first book of modernist criticism in English-Canadian Lit. containing essays on Lampman, Pickthall, Pratt, Kennedy, Klein, Smith, Scott, Le Franc, and Livesay originally published as a series in the Canadian Forum and in the University of Toronto Quarterly. Collin apparently titled the collection The White Savannahs because he was living in London Ontario at the time, which he felt was so devoid of culture it was much like living in a desert. [William Edwin Collin, literary critic (b at Oakenshaw, Eng 9 May 1893; d at London, Ont 21 Dec 1984). The White Savannahs, a modernist study of 9 Canadian poets, established him as a major Canadian critic. Collin applied the ideas of such writers as T.S. Eliot, Sir James Frazer & the French Symbolists to Canadian poetry. A fine prose stylist, he also wrote a study of Paul-Jean Toulet and many articles and reviews, including from 1941 to 1956 the yearly review of French Canadian literature for the University of Toronto Quarterly - The Canadian Encyclopedia]. "In 1982 critic, W. E. Collin recalled the excitement with which he discovered the poems of Leo [Kennedy] in a copy of the FORUM in 1930, and the urgency that sent him hurrying to Montreal to meet with the poet and his colleagues. The FORUM's editor had supplied him with addresses. Collin was struck by the proximity of the poets who were turning the desert imagery of T.S. Eliot to their own uses: "I exclaimed, 'They all live in Montreal, Kennedy, Smith, Scott, Klein, They all live in Montreal.'" Collin would eventually celebrate the group in his critical anthology THE WHITE SAVANNAHS [1936]." - AS THOUGH LIFE MATTERED, by Patricia A. Morley, 1994. The most extraordinary copy.

        The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money

      New York: Harcourt, Brace & Company, 1936. First American edition of the economist's masterpiece, generally regarded as the most influential social science treatise of the twentieth century. Octavo, original cloth. Near fine in a very good dust jacket with some light wear to the crown of the spine and overall light wear. Uncommon in this condition. 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.

        'Uummannaq' 3 smukke originalfotografier af Jette Bang. Alle SIGNERET af kunstneren, i samtidige rammer (3 original vintage photographic prints by Jette Bang - in contemporary frames, all SIGNED in hand by the photographer).

      Set of 3 original vintage photographs from 'Uummannaq', not dated but from Jette Bang's visit in 1936. Each app. 16 x 22 cm in frame. All signed in hand and in contemporary, gilt wooden frames.. Jette Bang (1914-1964) , important Danish photographer and film maker known for the photographs and films she shot in Greenland, depicting the country and the way of life of its inhabitants before their old culture disappeared. The present photos are from Bang's first travel to Greenland in 1936 where she spent eight months taking photographs of the traditional lifestyle of the Greenlandic Inuit, which was beginning to die out as a result of European influence. She travelled around on dog sleds and lived with the natives, sharing their way of life. The result was 400 photographs which were exhibited at the Danish Museum of Art & Design in 1937. Some were published in her book Grønland (1940) with a foreword by Minister of State Thorvald Stauning. The book was an eyeopener for the Danes and later chosen as one of the most important Danish photobooks as part of the Hasselblad Open Book exhibition 2004. - "Uummannaq" is Greenlandic for 'heart shaped' and here the name of a prominent mountain with two summits of similar height, hence the name. Uummannaq is 1,170 metres (3,839 ft) high and located on the small Uummannaq Island in the central part of the Uummannaq Fjord. It entirely dominates the landscape of the island, its base occupying its entire northern half. Formed of granite and basement gneiss, it is the most prominent mountain in the Arctic part of the west coast of Greenland. Sheltered from the coastal winds by the high, glaciated mountains of the Nuussuaq Peninsula, the area of Uummannaq Fjord is considered the sunniest spot in Greenland: Favourable weather conditions, good harbours, and proximity to the coastal route made the fjord system attractive to numerous southbound Inuit migrations in the past-the area has been settled and resettled for the last 4.500 years. Archaeological excavations in Qilakitsoq on the northeastern shore Nuussuaq Peninsula due south of Uummannaq Island revealed the existence of an ancient Arctic culture, later named the Saqqaq culture, which inhabited the area of west-central Greenland between 2500 BCE and 800 BCE

      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): " 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. .
