        Address of President Roosevelt Accepting the Democratic Nomination for President of the United States.

      Philadelphia N.p. 1936 - (5)ff. A signed typewritten speech, given by Franklin Delano Roosevelt on June 27, 1936, in acceptance of his nomination as the Democratic candidate for president. Roosevelt signed the speech at the end in blue ink, and the pages have sixteen corrections in blue pencil, with one sentence that has been crossed out. In the 1936 election, Roosevelt was the incumbent and had already started work on his New Deal in the midst of the Great Depression. In the speech, Roosevelt acknowledges his "grave responsibility" to the American people, but, in light of the relief brought by his New Deal programs, he also emphasizes that ".we have won against the most dangerous of our foes — we have conquered fear." He addresses economic inequality and denounces the "economic tyranny" of the "privileged princes of these new economic industries" who had "concentrated into their own hands an almost complete control over other people’s property, other people’s money, other people’s labor — other people’s lives." At the end of the speech, he states that ".here in America we are waging a great war. It is not alone a war against want and destitution and economic demoralization. It is a war for the survival of democracy. We are fighting to save a great and precious form of government for ourselves and for the world." Following this, in all capital letters, he closes the speech by saying "I accept the commission you have tendered me. I join you. I am enlisted for the duration of the war." Roosevelt won the election in a landslide victory, with all but eight electoral votes, in a time of economic instability and high unemployment; his accomplishments and rhetoric were no match for his opponent, Republican Alf Landon. Pages measure 8 by 14 inches. The pages are stapled and taped together at the top, and the area stapled has been reinforced with a strip of paper adhered to the blank verso of the last page. Creases to the pages from being folded into quarters, perhaps to fit into the President’s pocket, else in fine condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Seven Original Film Reels (8mm + 16mm) from the 1936 Olympic Summer + 1936 Olympic Winter Games (Five of the 8mm reels from Leni Riefenstahl's film Olympia)

      Tobis (Degeto Kulturfilm G.m.b.H., Schmalfilm-Abteilung) n/d, Berlin - Seven original films of the 1936 Olympic Games of Berlin and Garmisch-Partenkirchen. 8mm Riefenstahl reels: I/1: Military Olympia 1936 (Equestrian / Military). I/2: Frauenturnen Olympia 1936 (Women's Gymnastics). I/3: Turmspringen Olympia 1936 (Platform Diving). II/3: Unsterbliches Marathon (Marathon). 8mm reels accompanied by a folded text insert (in German) with a summary of the contents. All titles from part 2 "Fest der Schönheit," except Unsterbliches Marathon, which is from "Fest der Völker." Titles of the other reels (not by Riefenstahl), 16 mm: I/22: Meister der Faust (Boxing). I/23: Kunst des Eislaufs (Figure Skating). 8 mm: III/3: Stabhochsprung (Pole Vault). Tobis-Degeto released these individual reels as part of a much larger series in 8 and 16mm to the public after the initial success of "Fest der Völker," and the release of "Fest der Schönheit." All 7 reels resting in golden cardboard sleeve with titles in German printed on spine, housed in original red cardboard slipcase. Some age wear, slight tearing to parts of edges, minor abrasions on slipcases. Rubbing to edges of sleeves. Slipcases and sleeves in overall good, reels with actual film in very good condition. A fascinating piece of Olympic history. Extremely rare. Olympia is a groundbreaking, award-winning 1938 film by Leni Riefenstahl, documenting the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin. The film was produced in two parts: Olympia 1. Teil (Part 1): Fest der Völker (Festival of Peoples), and Olympia 2. Teil (Part 2): Fest der Schönheit (Festival of Beauty). It won awards at the Venice International Film Festival (1938), Lausanne International Film Festival (1948), as well as the National Film Prize (1937-38) and the Olympic Gold Medal of the Comitè International Olympique (1939). It was the first documentary on the Olympic Games ever made. Riefenstahl revolutionized motion pictures and used techniques such as extreme close-ups, unusual camera angles, setting railway tracks to capture the athletes and the crowd, etc. At the time this kind of film-making was groundbreaking and virtually unknown. In 1956, despite the controversy due to its political content, Olympia was classified as one of the world's ten best films and Time magazine included it in its "All-Time 100 movies."

        Gone With the Wind SIGNED with TWO SIGNED letters

      Macmillan Company, New York 1936 - A very rare pre-publication copy of "Gone With the Wind" signed by Margaret Mitchell on an inserted leaf, and with two outstanding letters, typed and signed by her. The book was published by The Macmillan Company, New York, 1936. First edition, first issue, with May 1936 listed as the month of publication. Prior to the release of the May 1936 first edition, the publisher Macmillan had Margaret Mitchell sign 500 sheets. These sheets were bound into a small number of the first printings and then sent to select influential booksellers to help promote the novel. This copy was sent to bookseller correspondent Robert Saltmarsh, owner of "Hutchinson's Bookshop" in New Bedford, Massachusetts. The book has been professionally rebound in full tan cloth with new endpapers and leaves. The signed leaf is toned and soiled with a stain underneath the signature. There is an ownership legend (detailing ownership of the book by Mr. Saltmarsh) written in unknown hand in blue ball-point pen below Mitchell's signature. Tape remnants and residue markings (matching formerly tipped-in letters) are present on the front and back of the signed leaf, and on the half-title page with bleed through on the verso. This pre-publication edition signed by the author, along with the deeply personal and revealing letters written and signed by Margaret Mitchell make this a truly rare and special collection of "Gone With the Wind".The first letter was written in Atlanta, Georgia and was dated June 5, 1936 (just a month after publication of "Gone With the Wind"). The letter was typed on her personal stationery and measures approximately 7.75 x 7 inches. The letter expresses Mitchell's sincere gratitude to the bookseller Robert Saltmarsh for his "kind words" about the book and the true shock of the book's high-praised reception.Condition: The top edge of the letter has been unevenly trimmed. There are four horizontal creases from being placed in an envelope. There is also an affixed newspaper clipping and a tape marking on the verso. The letter has been placed in an archival plastic protector for protection and preservation.The second letter was also typed on her personal stationery, and is two quarto pages on two quarto leaves (only the first leaf has her name embossed on it). Measures approximately 10.75 x 7 inches. The letter was dated February 19, 1940 and tells of the whirlwind years since the publication of her novel and of the newly released "moving picture". Condition: Both pages of the second letter have two horizontal creases from being placed in an envelope. The upper corners of each page have been taped.

The novel centers on its protagonist, Scarlett O'Hara, and her struggle to rebuild and sustain her wealth, which had been lost as a result of the fall of the Confederacy. Using any means necessary, Scarlett regains what she has lost, in large part due to Rhett Butler, a scoundrel and scallawag with a bad reputation. The trials and tribulations of Scarlett and her unwavering perseverance make this novel an American classic. Winning a Pulitzer Prize in 1937, a year after it was first published, "Gone with the Wind" went on to become an Academy Award-winning film in 1939.

Original publisher's linen boards, original pictorial dust jacket. With 12 COLOR PLATES (including frontispiece) BY ARTHUR RACKHAM, all protected by tissue guards with descriptive letterpress. Latimore & Haskell, p. 74. Dust jacket with tiny chip out of bottom edge of back panel and two very minor closed tears at bottom of front panel, a little chafing at folds, but still A VERY FINE COPY IN A FINE JACKET. This is an especially well-preserved copy of the first British trade edition (appearing the same year as a British limited edition and an American trade edition) of Rackham's "Peer Gynt," written by Ibsen in 1867. The translator here, R. Farquharson Sharp (1864-1945), says that his translation is an improvement over former ones because he has refused the temptation of retaining the rhymed verse of the original. He has instead chosen unrhymed verse in Ibsen's original meter in an attempt to capture the original, literal meaning. Rackham's accomplished full-page color illustrations here are the confident work of a mature artist approaching his 70th year. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Vellum like cream paper boards with gilt lettering and Rackham design stamped on front cover and spine, MCMXXXVI stamped in gilt at base of spine. Top edge gilt, tan and white pictorial endpapers by Rackham, uncut deckled edges with many pages unopened. Limitation page signed by Arthur Rackham.

In the original complete olive green slipcase with the title, author and illustrator's names, and limited edition # (matching that of the book) on a label pasted to the spine of the slipcase. The slipcase is moderately soiled on the front and rear and even moreso on the top, bottom and spine; nevertheless, it has protected the book well and is far scarcer to find in complete condition than the already scarce limited edition book itself. Several of the internal joints of the slipcase have recently been rejoined and strengthened, resulting in a slipcase that now has all joints firm and solid and thus will be able to continue to protect this delightful book for many years to come. The book itself is an absolute delight, it is clean and bright and tight withour prior ownership markings, and it shows signs of never having been read since numerous pages still remain unopened. This is indeed an outstanding copy, made even more desirable because it is still housed in the original complete like numbered slipcase. Riall p. 192.

      Jerusalem, British Mandated Palestine 1936 - Evidential to the roots of Middle Eastern terror, this is the extraordinary handwritten diary of Miss Doreen M. C., daughter of General and Mrs. J. C., sister of Cynthia. This British family witnesses the very beginnings of the modern era of Middle East tensions and terrorism having been residents of Jerusalem from January 1st to mid-June of 1936. Doreen writes a significant, extraordinary, insightful and well written diary. A young girl of 16 or 17 we estimate (too young for boys - she detests them - and too old for the usual games that girls play [paraphrase]) she writes of her time spent traveling throughout British mandated Palestine recording daily her comings and goings and all that goes on around her. She also does a great job drawing maps and other illustrations. Doreen sums it up in her own hand: in a handwritten copy of a 1963 letter to the famed Leonard Mosley of the Sunday Times, found in the book Doreen admits to having in 1936 "a passion for keeping a large diary; I wrote down incidents of the strike, riots, and daily murders and ambushes like a recording angel!" She is modest. 1936 was a very intense, very interesting and very disturbing year - Mussolini advancing against the Abyssinians in Africa, Hitler on the rise in Europe, Franco tearing apart Spain, the King of England dies, Edward VIII rises and starts to fall and Palestine is in foment as the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem has made a heinous pact with Hitler and called on the arab populous to strike - politically and through armed conflict murdering British soldiers and Jewish civilians and many, many of their own people. Doreen is a "recording angel" to all this and more. From January 1st until mid-June she is for the most part based in Jerusalem, living first at the King David Hotel before moving to Talbiyeh Colony in Jerusalem. There are very few idle days; many day trips, visits, shopping and when they move residence on 'Murhurrem', Jerusalem's famed moving days, which date changes yearly, and her description of the movers and hubbub are a delightful counterpoint to the atrocities she documents. Everyday she fully details her travels around the country and the news/politics of the day - even a trip to the dentist is fraught with danger given the times. Her father was highly placed at Air Headquarters (research has found he ends his service a General and OBE recipient) with the British Air Department. He meets frequently with generals and 'big bugs' as she calls them. She even admits that he is doing the "hush-hush work". Doreen names many of the British Colony and quite frequently makes comments - Mr. Such and Mr. Other 'complete scoundrels'. Doreen is an information and current events savant. She reads the papers, listens to the radio and pumps the transient English men and women who travel throughout the Middle East and North Africa in service of Britain for the inside info and stories. [A short wave (ham) radio operator Doreen diligently records calls and conversations as she reaches out for more news.] She can quote to the day a year before when 'Mussy' promised not to go to war. Abyssinia is very important to her. The Italians, the Germans and the plight of the Jews under Hitler disturbs her to no end. Many times in her writings she makes mention, for example; PC 459 (police constable) said such and such giving her info which she then reports: "contrary to the newspaper reports" this is what really happened. She coalesced all the info and records the real story as she sees it. Here are just a very few snippets: "Mussolini is the greatest liar on earth. Hitler is number 2. Hitler is "bats" or something for he is daring to order every German Jew youth back to Germany (those who have been turned out included) for conscription." "[I] was told a few tales of storm troops that dared not to be published. They may sound a little far fetched but I do believe them as true. Poland is treating the Jews disgustingly."

      The Bodley Head, London 1936 - James Joyce. ULYSSES. Signed 1/100 Copies. London: John Lane The Bodley Head, 1936. First Edition printed in England. A fine example of this, the most beautiful edition of Ulyssses ever published, designed by Eric Gill with Homeric Bow in gilt on the cover. Quarto, blonde calf vellum board printed on mould-made paper - number 38 of only 100 copies signed by Joyce in blue/black ink on the limitations page. [Total edition 1000 copies with 900 in cloth]. With the Bodley Head's printed announcement of publication laid in; in the original patterned paper slipcase with a bit of foxing & soiling to the printed numbered paper label, showing some rubbing at the slipcase edges - near fine considering it's endemic fragility. A very nice lovely example. Joyce's biographer Richard Ellman observed, "In his earlier books Joyce forced modern literature to accept new styles, new subject matter, new kinds of plot and characterization. In his last book he forced it to accept a new area of being and a new language. What is ultimately most impressive is the sureness with which, in the midst of such technical accomplishments, he achieved his special mixture of attachment and detachment, of gaiety and lugubriousness. He was no saturnine artificer contriving devices, but one of life's celebrants, in bad circumstances cracking good jokes, foisting upon ennuis and miseries his comic vision."
