        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]

      London: Philip Allan, 1936., 1936. First edition. 8vo. Bound in publisher's red cloth titled and ruled in black to spine. Minor rubbing and shelfwear, some sunning to extremities.

        [Silk Banner]: Sociedad Espanola Benefica de Senoras. San Francisco. Fundada en 1935. Inc. Oct. 9, 1936 [Spanish Ladies Beneficial Society. San Francisco. Founded in 1935. Incorporated. Oct. 9, 1936]

      Elaborately embroidered silk banner, bordered in silk ribbon, and fringed, suspended from wooden rod with gold-colored metal finials, apparently meant to be either hung or carried in a parade. Approximately 23" wide x 36" long. Bottom layer of reddish-pink silk, with an overlay of scalloped white silk, embroidered with silver and gold lettering, central images of a star and hands clasping, and outlined in gold with heavy gold silk cord suspended from the rod. The reddish-pink background is slightly sunned but otherwise is near fine, untattered and only very slightly worn. Presumably this elaborate and detailed banner was used in a parade, or was displayed at meetings of the Society. While undated, the style suggests that it is roughly contemporary with the 1936 date of incorporation, and indeed may have been commissioned at that time. While memorabilia promoting people of Spanish decent in America began as early as the late 1860s, this certainly represents a very early attempt among Latina women in the United States to band together and form a beneficial organization. A bright, striking, rare, quite possibly unique banner. .

      1936. First Edition. Hardcover. The binding has some wear to the spine tips with slight loss of leather at the heel and light wear to the corners. Very Good copy and increasingly uncommon. Folio (11" x 14") in the original full brown leather with gilt lettering on the front cover and the original pictorial wraps bound in; 384 pages. SIGNED by the President beneath a color image of the White House on the limitation leaf, #1531 of an unstated limitation of 2500 copies, which is often found removed from the book as it makes a beautiful display piece. A voluminous book of information and advertising (many liquor ads) that was used as a fund raiser for the Democratic Party containing FDR's acceptance speech, the Democratic Platform of 1936, and biographies of all the Cabinet members as well as articles on Congress, the Supreme Court, the Cabinet departments, and reproductions of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Some light and scattered foxing with the typical discoloration to the edges of the endpapers. The page with FDR's signature is Fine. This is a presentation copy, as a number of copies were, with the recipient's name in gilt at the bottom of the front cover, in this case the "Bethlehem Steel Company Library." Though it was in that once powerful company's library, there are no library markings whatsoever.

        Portraits - Brustbilder, 2 Photographien; mit je einer eigenhändigen Widmung und eigenhändigen Unterschrift.

      . 2 Orignal Photographoien, O.O., 6. Oktober (19)36, 15,4 x 21,2 cm auf 28,8 x 11 cm.. Rare set, dedicated by "W(illiam). J(ames). Mayo/ To the Minneapolis Surigcal Society by/ Oct. 6/36" and "C(harles). H(orace). Mayo/ To the Minneapolis Surgical Society Library/ 1936". - William James Mayo (1861-1939, Rochester received his M.D. degree in 1883 from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and then engaged at Rochester in the private practice of medicine and surgery with his father and later with his younger brother Charles Horace Mayo. Though William J. Mayo became the administrator in the practice, no important decisions were made without the full agreement of both brothers. He and his brother performed all the surgery at St. Mary's Hospital until about 1905. From this surgical partnership of the two brothers evolved the cooperative group clinic, later known as the Mayo Clinic. William James Mayo, who became a specialist in surgery of the abdomen, pelvis, and kidney, remained active in surgery at the clinic until 1928 and in administration until 1933. - Charles Horace Mayo (b. July 19, 1865, Rochester-d. May 26, 1939, Chicago, Ill.) was the younger son of William Worrall Mayo and was characterized as a "surgical wonder." He received an M.D. degree from the Chicago Medical College (later part of Northwestern University Medical School) in 1888 and in the same year began private practice of surgery with his father and brother. - Charles Mayo had the ability to work in all surgical fields; he originated modern procedures in goitre surgery and in neurosurgery; he performed highly successful operations for cataract of the eye and originated procedures for several orthopedic operations. In 1930 he retired from surgery at the clinic and three years later from administration. He was professor of surgery at the University of Minnesota Medical School from 1919 to 1936 and at the University of Minnesota Graduate School from 1915 to 1936. William J. Mayo said about his brother, "Charlie has . . . an intuitive mind, from his knowledge of physiology and anatomy and his understanding of the personality of the patient." At one time he was a member of the advisory board of Encyclopaedia Britannica. With his brother, he alternated as chief consultant for all surgical services in the U.S. Army during World War I, serving with the rank of colonel. After the war, each brother was commissioned a brigadier general in the medical-corps reserve. - Charles William Mayo (b. July 28, 1898, Rochester-d. July 28, 1968, Rochester) was the son of Charles Horace. He was a skilled surgeon and member of the board of governors of the Mayo Clinic, chairman of the Mayo Association, and a member (chairman 1961-67) of the board of regents of the University of Minnesota. He is noted for a speech he gave in 1953 as a member of the United States delegation at the United Nations. - The clinic began to grow in size in the early 1900s, when many young physicians began to apply for positions as interns and assistants. At the same time, outstanding scientists in basic medical subjects were added to the clinic's training and research programs. In 1919 the Mayo brothers transferred property and capital to the Mayo Properties Association, later called the Mayo Foundation, a charitable and educational corporation having a perpetual charter. About 1900 the Mayo Clinic was changed from a partnership to a voluntary association of physicians and specialists in allied fields. In the late 20th century the clinic's staff included about 500 physicians, treating more than 200,000 patients annually.

        The Shadow Over Innsmouth

      Everett, Pennsylvania: Visionary Publishing Co.. 1936. First. First edition. Illustrated by Frank A. Utpatel. Currey's Binding B (no priority established): black cloth stamped in silver on the front panel in both upper and lower case letters. Fine in fine dustwrapper (Currey's Dust Jacket 3 (no priority established) printed in silver on white paper, no illustration). Original oversized errata slip is present and unfolded (rarely found, and in the cases where it is present, invariably it has been folded). Both the book and errata slip are housed in a cloth chemise and full morocco slipcase decorated with gold and silver decorations. Both the errata slip and the dustwrapper were printed after the fact and mailed to those who had purchased the book. A magnificent copy of Lovecraft's first published book (a prior work was printed in 1928 but not published, and was circulated only among a few of Lovecraft's friends). Additionally, this title is the only book by Lovecraft published during his lifetime -- he died the following year, and the voluminous Lovecraft volumes now in print were all published in posthumous collections. Approximately 400 copies of this title were printed, of which only about 200 were bound. From the collection of John K. Martin, with his simple, tiny book label on the rear pastedown. John K. Martin founded the Black Sparrow Press and is perhaps best known for providing Charles Bukowski a guaranteed stipend that allowed Bukowski to leave his post office job in order to write. Martin's private collections are renowned for the superior condition of their material. A stunning copy of this highspot of horror literature. .

        Turn, Magic Wheel

      New York: Farrar & Rinehart. (1936). First. First edition. Some foxing and wear to the boards, spine repaired, a very good copy in a supplied, good dustwrapper with a crease on the spine and with small chips and tears. This copy Inscribed but not signed by Powell to her close friend Hannah Green: "To Green, My Queen. Euch." Green made a point of collecting Powell's older books, apparently and as evidenced here, much to Powell's dismay. 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. An exceptionally scarce book. .

        The Equinox of the Gods. The Official Organ of the A.'.A.'. Vol. III No. III

      London: O.T.O BM/JPKH 1936, 1st Edition. 1st Issue. () v, 137pp. Very good. Quarto. Original cream cloth with gilt lettering and decorations on spine and front. Slight concaving over upper front cover. Some dirt-soiling to boards. Minor professional restoration to front hinges. Japon vellum paper with untrimmed foredges. Small errata slip, usually tipped in the last page, has been neatly removed. Extremely minor foxing to head of some pages. Two color plates, two additional pictorial title pages for Liber Al Vel Legis, and Genesis Libri Al. Additional 65 pages facsimile manuscript in card covers, inserted in back pocket. Original advertisement and order form sits loosely in front enpapers, considerably foxed. This title was Crowley's first published study on the origins of the Book of the Law, including essays on history and meaning, reproductions, and translations of the "Stele of Revealing". There is a full sized facsimile of the original manuscript in card covers with red and black letting on cover, enclosed in the back pocket. The book originally recieved poor sales and was almost completely rejected by booksellers. It was "reissued" in 1937, using unsold copies of the 1936 edition, the only change made was the date on the title page. Once again due to disappointing sales, most of the pages remained unbound and were sent to Karl Germer in the USA. They appeared in many hybrid versions until 1987. This is certainly one of the best copies of the rare true first issue extant..

Silk screen lithograph bookplate of former owner on front free endpaper. Minute foxing beginning on verso. Few pencil markings in text. Textblock is clean and crisp. Dustjacket has had some professional restoration, small staining to back and offsetting of tape marks. This book attempts to solve the problem of variations in the volume of output and employment. Bookplate and signature in front free endpaper with name "Lucas Avery Alden", dated April 1936. We believe this to be a Financial Consultant, and former Vice-President, of W.R. Grace & Company. This company is associated with one of the largest asbestos contaminations in American History. A very attractive copy with a bold yellow and black dustjacket..

        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.
