      Garden City: Doubleday, Doran, 1936. First Edition. Hardcover. Spine sunned. Very Good, lacking the dustwrapper. The First Trade Edition of the First Illustrated Edition of this famous book. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the front free endpaper: "For James W. Poling/to whose labours I owe many happy hours/W. Somerset Maugham." Poling was an author of several books, including THE FINAL FACE OF EVE with Evelyn Lancaster, and an editor at Doubleday, Doran, one it appears who worked on Maugham's books. Perhaps Maugham's greatest effort, OF HUMAN BONDAGE was made into a film in 1934 starring Bette Davis in her breakout performance. It was remade in 1946 with Eleanor Parker as the manipulative Mildred Rogers and again in 1964 with Kim Novak as Mildred. This edition came out twenty years after the book's success and is graced with illustrations by Randolph Schwabe. There was a limited signed edition of this book issued simultaneously with this trade edition. We have had many copies of it over the years, but we have never come across a trade edition inscribed by Maugham, let alone one with such a fine inscription.

        Cup of Gold

      NY, Covici Friede, 1936, first edition thus, dust jacket. Hardcover. This is commonly refered to as the first edition, second issue, with a new preface by Lewis Gannett and with a different title page, binding, and dust jacket design, with the misspelling (Covici Freide) blacked out on the jacket spine with the proper spelling (Covici Friede) printed above and with no mention of Steinbeck as the author of Of Mice and Men on the front jacket panel, the Goldstone & Payne bibliography of Steinbeck errs in its suggestion that this book came from unbound sheets of the first edition by McBride in 1929, recent scholarship by Phil Ralls in his Steinbeck Firsts shows that this is an entirely new printing, making it truly the second edition, Covici had promised Steinbeck that he would keep his earlier books in print, he used photo-offset plates made from the McBride first edition to make his own printing which makes this book the true second edition and not the first edition, second issue, Ralls shows that Lawrence Clark Powell actually makes this point in the April 17, 1937 issue of "Publisher's Weekly," a physical examination of the McBride first edition and this book shows, for example, that there are different widths of the text blocks, the McBride being 28 mm wide while this true second edition measures 33 mm, see Goldstone & Payne A1b, Morrow 2, this specific copy is a Family Copy that belonged to his sister, Elizabeth Ainsworth with her bookplate to the front free endpaper, it was part of the family collection that was auctioned a few years ago, laid in loosely is a manuscript note (probably in his sister's hand) stating "First novel/written when John/was just past 20/years old,".

        Powerful and Historically Important Typed Letter Signed

      London, 1936. unbound. 2 pages (front and back), 10 x 8 inches, Goring Hotel, S.W. London, January 3, 1936. Written to American international law attorney Frederic R. Coudert, this is the very letter that is cited and referred to in many texts and publications for its quote: "May You Live In Interesting Times." In October 1935, Benito Mussolini sent 400,000 Italian soldiers into Ethiopia and was able to overrun the country within a short time. Chamberlain, though in retirement, made several sensational speeches in support of the League of Nations, encouraging sanctions against the Italian Government. In December 1935, just days before this letter was written, the people of England and France heard about The Hoare-Laval Pact and learned that their respective Governments had proposed dividing Ethiopia into two countries -- an Italian sector and an Abyssinian sector. Mussolini was prepared to agree to the Pact, but news of the deal was leaked and both the British and French public violently protested against it. The British Government was in chaos and faced a Parliamentary Rebellion but it would be Chamberlain and his strong opposition to the vote of censor that was instrumental in saving the Government from defeat on the floor of the House. In part: "...Obviously at this moment the League is being submitted to a very severe test and its weakness as well as its strength is apparent. It is surely a remarkable thing that so many nations have joined in the economic sanctions, particularly the refusal to buy from Italy, but it is true that they show a not unnatural reluctance to take action which would definitely lead to war...Until this crisis is past it is difficult to say what inferences should be drawn from it, but I think it shows the truth of what I said in my speech in the House of Commons, namely, that whilst the League is a very effective preventative of what I called 'accidental' wars, it cannot at present restrain a determined aggressor and that only overwhelming force can do it. Here in Europe...effective action could be secured but only through regional pacts for military assistance...coupled with economic is the case of Abyssinia. Such are the concussions I draw for the moment. Some time ago a diplomat here told me that there was a Chinese curse, which took the form of a saying: 'May you live in interesting times.' Our generation seems to have incurred this curse. The security for which we are all seeking seems farther off than ever." Natural folds; tiny hole in the top margin; several handwritten corrections. Very good condition. British statesman and Foreign Secretary who was a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. Unlike his half-brother Neville Chamberlain, Austin opposed appeasement. Ironically, he died four weeks after Neville became Prime Minister of Great Britain.

First edition, first printing. A beautiful copy of this classic children's tale, of a bull who liked to smell flowers under the cork tree rather than fight in bull fights. Published just months before the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, many saw it as a Pacifist title. It was banned in several countries, including Spain. Hitler ordered the title to be burned, while Stalin allowed it to be the only non communist children's title allowed in Poland and Mahatma Gandhi proclaimed it as his favourite book. This title was also the basis for the 1938 Walt Disney animated short which won the Academy Award that year in the best short film category.

First American edition.Young Men in Spats is a collection of short stories by P. G. Wodehouse, first published in the United Kingdom on 3 April 1936 by Herbert Jenkins, London, then in the United States with a slightly different selection of stories on 24 July 1936 by Doubleday, Doran, New York. The collection, recounting the adventures of various members of the Drones Club (except for the last one), features many familiar characters from Wodehouse's other writings, including Freddie Widgeon and the irrepressible Mr Mulliner. One story, "Uncle Fred Flits By", features the first appearance of Pongo Twistleton and his Uncle Fred, who would go on to feature in four novels, including two appearances at Blandings Castle. The US edition contains a slightly different selection of stories from the UK version. "Tried in the Furnace" and "Trouble Down At Tudsleigh" had not previously appeared in the US, and were held back so they could garner greater income from magazine sales. (Both stories eventually appeared in Cosmopolitan.) These two stories were accordingly replaced by three Oldest Member golf stories, "There's Always Golf", "The Letter of the Law", and "Farewell to Legs". These three Oldest Member stories had all appeared in US magazines in early 1936; they all later appeared in the UK in Lord Emsworth and Others (1937). After their Cosmopolitan appearances, "Tried in the Furnace" was included in the US-only collection The Crime Wave at Blandings (1937), and "Trouble Down at Tudsleigh" was included in the US edition of Eggs, Beans and Crumpets (1940).Condition:Light sunning to extremities and spine. Jacket chipped at corners and spine ends, light edge wear, light soiling else a very good copy in like jacket.

This was the first of three novels which Anthony Berkeley wrote under this pseudonym. A really nice example, scarce in this condition, of the true first printing of this ground-breaking crime novel.

        Johnson Autograph Sentiment on Anthony Stamp

      Washington, DC, 1936-40. Washington, DC. 1936-40. Single sheet, signed by Adelaide Johnson below three cent stamp with image of Susan B. Anthony based on Johnson's marble bust of the suffrage leader, with the following text, "Two hundred and twenty five millions / - 225 000 000 - / of the above picture of my marble portrait / Susan B. Anthony / Issued by the Government are - with their message - / now make their way over the world./ " In top left and right corners respectively the artist has written "We Quest Far" and "1936-1940." In the lower left and right corners respectively, she has written, "Only Stamp from the Work of a Living Artist" and "Studio / 230 Maryland Ave. N.E. Washington, D.C."& Adelaide Johnson (1855-1959) was born in Illinois and attended the St. Louis School of Design. She was awarded first and second prize at a state exposition in competition with professional woodcarvers in 1877. In 1883, Johnson studied painting in Dresden, moving to Rome in 1884 to become a student of Guile Montverde. She maintained a studio in Rome for the next twenty-five years, at various times in her career Johnson had studios in Carrara, London, New York, Chicago and Washington. Eventually she became the sculptor of the monument that honors the woman's movement that stands in the United States Capitol. & Adelaide Johnson developed a feminist perspective early in her life; she perceived feminism as the greatest revolutionary force in history and "the mightiest thing in the evolution of humanity." She saw it as her mission to record and immortalize the history of the movement. She began this life work by exhibiting busts of suffragists Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Susan B. Anthony, and of the pioneer physician Caroline B. Winslow, at the Woman's Pavilion of the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893. Through New York suffragist Alva Belmont of the National Woman's Party, she secured a commission for a national monument for the Capitol Building that was the first statue to women, by a woman, for women's service to women. Her seven-ton sculpture of white Carrara marble, "The Woman Movement," contained portrait busts of Mott, Stanton, and Anthony . It was presented to the nation on behalf of American women by the National Woman's Party for Anthony's birthday, February 15th, 1921. The reception for Johnson was the first ever given for a woman in the Capitol building. NAW, The Modern Period, pp. 380-381. Fairman, Art and Artists of the Capitol of the United States.

        Meyers Lexikon, 8. Auflage, 9 Bände + Atlas-Band (unvollendet), 1936 - 1942 (neuwertiges Exemplar, überwiegend in Schutzumschlägen und Schubern).

      Leipzig, Bibliographisches Institut, 1936 - 1942.. Völlig neu bearbeitete und bebilderte Auflage mit circa 14.500 Spalten, 20.000 teils farbigen Abbildungen sowie 400 Haupt- und Nebenkarten. Vollständige Ausgabe in 9 Bänden (A - Soxhlet, mehr nicht erschienen) mit dem gesuchten Atlas-Band, zusammen also 10 Bände. Braune Original-Halbkunstlederbände (lederartiges Gewebe) mit goldgeprägten Rückentiteln auf roten Rückenschildern. Einbanddecken in farblich passendem hellbraunen Leinen. Einziges während der NS-Zeit erschienenes Großlexikon, das unter unmittelbarer "Mitarbeit" nationalsozialistischer Parteidienststellen entstand. Hier liegt die Crux, aber zugleich auch das Besondere dieses Lexikons, das wie kaum ein anderes Werk den nationalsozialistischen Zeitgeist in seiner Komplexität widerspiegelt. Der Atlas-Band enthält unter anderem seltenes Kartenmaterial zur politischen Topographie (u. a. Gaueinteilung der NSDAP) sowie zur Wirtschaftsgeographie (Schwerpunkte der industriellen und landwirtschaftlichen Produktion) des Dritten Reiches. Als Nachschlagewerk zum Dritten Reich daher eine wichtige Informationsquelle für alle zeitgeschichtlich Interessierten. Es erschienen lediglich die Bände 1 bis 9 (A - Soxhlet) sowie der Atlas-Band, anschließend wurde der Druck kriegsbedingt eingestellt.. Die Bände 1 bis 8 noch in den Original-Schutzumschlägen und in den Original-Schubern. Diese unbenutzten Bände befinden sich in neuwertigem Zustand, auch Schutzumschläge (von wenigen minimalen Randläsionen abgesehen) und Schuber tadellos. Bd. 9 und Atlas ohne Schutzumschläge und Schuber. Der nachträglich während des Krieges erschienene Bd. 9 - wie stets - etwas matter, sonst auch dieser Band in sehr gutem Zustand. Atlas ebenfalls tadellos. In toto frisches, nahezu neuwertiges, Exemplar dieser zeitgeschichtlich interessanten Ausgabe. Zahlreiche Verlagsprospekte - auch seltene - sowie Original-Rechnung noch beiliegend. Weitere Fotos auf der Homepage des Antiquariats (bitte Art.-Nr. auf der Angebotsseite in das Suchfeld eingeben).
