        Nothing So Monstrous

      New York: Pynson Printers. 1936. First. First Separate Edition (originally published as part of The Pastures of Heaven, 1932); Goldstone A2f; noting that the paper supply allowed only 370 copies to be printed. Lightly worn at the edges, about fine. Published for subscribers to use as Christmas gifts, the colophon was customized with the subscriber's name following "made by the Pynson Printers of New York at the request of --- for presentation to [blank]." Goldstone notes 50 copies were so designated for Elmer Adler, 100 for Frederick B. Adams, Jr., 150 for Ben Abramson, 50 for Edwin J. Beinecke and 20 for antiquarian bookseller Howard Mott (although evidently fewer were issued with his name; only one is known). Unknown to Goldstone, this is one of apparently only six copies with Steinbeck's name in the colophon. In a letter to Frederick B. Adams, Jr., one of the publishers, Steinbeck requested six copies as he couldn't "afford any more." Steinbeck has filled in the colophon with the name of Elsie and Martin Ray, and has Inscribed upside-down on the rear free endpaper, "For Rusty and Elsie, Whose back rubbing has made me a little less monstrous than I have been. John Steinbeck." In the proper place, right side up on the front free endpaper, the author has Inscribed "I am a dope (see last page) John Steinbeck." Steinbeck was a guest at Martin (Rusty) and Elsie Ray's Mt. Eden Winery in Saratoga, California, where he is said to have written a portion of The Grapes of Wrath. .

        Tales of Mystery and Imagination. Illustrated by Harry Clarke

      Tudor Publishing Co., New York, 1936., 1936. 4to., pp. 412. With colour frontispiece and 31 plates, of which 7 are coloured. Fine (small crease to frontis). Publisher's black cloth. In near fine unfaded dust-wrapper, merely a few signs of minor edgewear. A lovely copy. A seminal figure in the development of science fiction and the detective story, Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) exerted a great influence on Dostoyevsky, Conan Doyle, Verne, and Baudelaire. This collection of Poe's best stories contains all the terrifying and bewildering tales that characterize his work, as well as the Gothic horror of 'The Pit and the Pendulum' with other similarly wierd tales, together with all three of the landmark cases featuring his ground-breaking detective Auguste Dupin; the history of the detective story begins with the publication of 'The Murders In the Rue Morgue' (Matthews). He was a writer of genius who was interested in crime, especially violent death, in cryptograms, and the whole process of logical deduction (Quayle). Poe's mystery of 'The Purloined Letter' is a prototype of spy stories like those of James Bond. (Haining) Queen's Quorum (their first Cornerstone title), Eric Quayle; Detective Fiction. Peter Haining; Crime Fiction. Listed in 100 Books That Shaped World History [Raftery, 2002]. Bleiler; Checklist of Fantastic Literature [1972]. Book Collector No.271, 'The Great Illustrators'; No.273; 'Amercan Sci-Fi'.

        Autograph account by Frederick Leman Whelan of a visit by him to the Soviet Union in 1936, as leader of 'the League of Nations Union party' of British 'useful idiots'; with other matter relating to the U.S.S.R.

      'To Leningrad & Moscow Intourist "S.S. Cooperazia". Sat. 27th June to Sunday 19th July' First entry dated 22 June 1936 - Small 4to, 61 pp, with the first four pages unpaginated and the last ones paginated 1-57. In notebook of good laid paper, in decorative boards. Text clear and complete. Very good, on lightly-aged paper; in worn and chipped wraps, with 'U.S.S.R.' on spine and front board. Various addresses by Whelan inside the front cover, with the date 1936 amended to 1945 and 1950. Pages of slogans and abbreviations are followed by the notebook itself. The volume intersperses notes on the visit (ending at p.31) with extracts of quotations, statistics and other matter about the Soviet Union. The first entry, dated 22 June 1936, gives the names and details of the eleven members of 'the party to U.S.S.R.', with Whelan naming himself 'Leader of the party'. The group includes the artist Priscilla Thorneycroft, the Rev. Henry Iselin, and Councillor Arnold Kenyon of Ashton under Lyne ('Interested in Industrial & Social Con.'). 'We leave Hayes Wharf, London Bridge, by M. V. Sortongflot (Soviet Mercantile Fleet) on Sat. 27th June and are due back at Hayes Wharf on Sunday. 19th July'. Whelen's first impressions of the ship are 'very favourable'. 'The crew and the officials seem very pleasant.' Three days later the ship enters the Kiel canal: 'Propaganda is entirely absent. There is not even a picture visible of either Lenin or Stalin. The only books seem to be those brought on board by the passengers. The boat is scrupulously clean. The sailors seem to spend their leisure scrubbing the decks or polishing where polishing is possible or washing steps and windows. An atmosphere of complete friendliness.' Whelen transcribes a number of 'appreciations' in 'The Traveller's Book in the Salon of the "Cooperazia"', noting that 'Among them a large number of American travellers express extreme indignation at Hearst's accusations of starvation in Soviet Russia.' After a journey of five days the party arrive in Leningrad, which strikes Whelen as 'a happy, orderly, and cheerful city. I saw very few soldiers. The police, or militia, or whatever is the correct name, seemed friendly with the people. [.] Little boys frequently asked for stamps. Boys and older people also joined up with us at the least encouragement and talked and showed us the way. I was surprised at the number who spoke German.' He finds the female 'Guides of "Intourist" 'charming and competent. They descibe things with great clarity. No obvious propaganda.' On 9 July the party are in Moscow, where one of their first visits is to the 'Commune for Derelict Boys': 'Later girls were included. One of the first waif boys married a girl in the Village and is now Director of the Boot Factory. The boys at first objected to girls being received. As the Director put it "The criminals refused to receive the prostitutes". Started 12 years ago'. In later entries others join the party (on one tour they are joined by the American playwright Elmer Rice). Whelen gives a long account of a 'Talk with A. Neyman, Director, Third Western Department' at the People's Commisariat of Foreign Affairs in Narkomindel. On 11 July they go to 'VOKS', where they are 'received by AMDOR of the Anglo American Dept. by Mrs. Kislova and Miss Plakshina, our interpreter, who had accompanied us'. He describes 'the Propaganda Film "Cirkus"'. Long description of conversation with 'Mr. AROSEV, the President of Voks'. The party's 'last combined excursion and one of the most delightful' is a journey 'by car a few miles out of Moscow to the Malablovsky Children's Village in the pine woods'. Description of village and conversation with children. 'When we left they crowded round our car shout "Good bye" which they had just proudly learnt from us. We gave them 3 cheers and they vigorously imitated us. I was presented with a bouquet of flowers, a new experience for me. Oh! the Russian country roads'. Of Andre Gide Whelen writes: 'I met Gide at Leningrad. He was with a group of French authors. He had been in Moscow for the Funeral of Gorki on 20. 6. 36 [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        KAGAYAKU NIPPON DAIHAKURANKAI [THE GREAT EXHIBITION OF BRILLIANT JAPA

      1936 - [JAPANESE POSTER] Osaka Mainichi Shimbunsha. KAGAYAKU NIPPON DAIHAKURANKAI [THE GREAT EXHIBITION OF BRILLIANT JAPAN] & KAGAYAKU NIPPONHAKU Annaiki. The poster was printed by Osaka Seihan printing company in their patented high-quality "HB" process, which they used to reproduce the effect of color woodblock, etc. With an (unread) artist's seal. Dated on the recto April/May 1936 this large poster (60.8 X 107 cm.) displays bold colors and near abstract design which shows the progress of Japanese industry as a freighter ship evolves pictorially in ascent through a great gear wheel, to an airplane, and then a skyscraper with pennants, all mediated by repeated circular images of a golden sun and red sun akadama images from the national flag. Considering its size, the fragility of the paper and its age, the edgewear and creasing, along with a bit of foxing, leaves this piece still unusually clean and bright with older backing and color restoration. Presents very well. Perhaps the most interesting and arresting piece of industrial art design from its time we have seen in a poster format. The accompanying large 8vo. brochure in color wraps is the guidebook for the Exposition. Printed as a revised edition at the time of the show, 1936. Illustrated internally with b+w photo illustrations of exhibits, ceremonies, etc., etc. The rear cover reproduces the very poster that we are offering here. The guidebook is quite worn, with some paper repairs. Very scarce and interesting combination of these ephemeral items from Japan's prewar golden age of design. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
