        The Common Sense Of Drinking

      Boston: Little, Brown. Very Good in Very Good- dust jacket. 1936. First Edition; Later Printing. Hardcover. Light tone, otherwise light wear; Dust Jacket spine darkened, chipping to head, tone, rub. Solid hardcover. ; Richard Peabody was a Boston blue-blood alcoholic who squandered his fortune. Through the Emmanuel Movement, he struggled with his illness, becoming a lay therapist to alcoholics, and authored this influential book describing a path to recovery, first printed in 1931. "The author first defines the causes which if uncontrolled lead to alcoholism, and then sets forth the course of cure whereby many of his patients have been set free from what may come to be a pernicious disease." AA founder Bill W was influenced by this work and borrowed Peabody's phrases such as "Once an alcoholic, always an alcoholic" and "Half measures are of no avail." In addition the entire story of "A man of thirty" contained in the Big Book chapter More About Alcoholism appears to have been lifted from Peabody's book. Sadly, this later 1936 printing was published the year of Peabody's early death. An uncommon copy of this significant work in Recovery, with its quite hard-to-find dust jacket.; xvi, 191 pages .

        Negro Folk Songs as Sung By Lead Belly, 'King of the Twelve-String Guitar Players of the World,' Long-Time Convict in the Penetentiaries of Texas and Louisiana

      New York: MacMillan Co., 1936. First Edition. Hardcover Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. xiv, 242 pages. The first 64-pages of this book are devoted to Lead Belly's biography, mostly phonetically transcribed from Lead Belly's own account of his life, growing up poor and living on the edge of poverty and violence and eventually landing in prison. The remainder of the book transcribes several dozen of his songs, with musical notation and commentary by the Lomaxes. The Lomaxes, father and son, discovered Huddie (HUGH-die) Ledbetter, who everyone called Lead Belly (only later condensed into one word), at Angola State Prison, in Louisiana, where he was frequently trotted out to entertain visitors. In their travels across the country recording traditional music for the Library of Congress, they had met many talented performers, but no one with the powerful personality, musical gift, or the extensive repertoire of folk songs of Lead Belly. After Lead Belly's release from prison in 1934 (which may or may not have been assisted by the Lomaxes' recording of his plea for clemancy in ballad form), the Lomaxes sought to manage Lead Belly's career as a performer. They knew a lot about music but little about the music business, and the relationship had fallen apart even before this book--which must have been seen as part of their effort to promote Lead Belly's performances--was published. A commercial flop, receiving a long, condescending review in the New York Times, the book still stands as one of the most substantial biographies of a black musician to be published before the Second World War. Lead Belly spent the last fifteen years of his life performing, influencing the white folk music scence, blues, and eventually rock 'n' roll. An indisputably important book. First edition (first printing). A much-nicer-than-usual copy. Cloth covers shellacked, perhaps as a preservation effort, and indeed, they show almost no wear. The dust jacket has minor loss at the folds and a few creases, but is generally very good or better. The orange dots on the spine and a narrow strip of the front cover have faded to yellow, as usual. Scarce in nice condition. The back of the jacket, incidentally, advertises other new Macmillan books, including Gone with the Wind.

        THE EQUINOX OF THE GODS. The Official Organ of the A.:.A.:. Vol III No. III

      London: Issued by the O.T.O., BM/JPKH, September MCMXXXVI E.V. [1936].. First Edition, First Printing. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE. Large quarto, original cream cloth titled & decorated in gilt on spine and front panel. pp v, [138], together with the 65 loose page facsimile manuscript of The Book of the Law, in card covers with titles printed in red and black, inserted in a pocket at the end of the book. Printed on Japon vellum paper with untrimmed edges. The small errata slip, usually tipped in to the final page, has been neatly removed. Two colour plates showing the Stele of Revealing, plus additional pictorial title pages for Liber Al vel Legis and Genesis Libri Al. This is the correct first issue, issued in 1936; there is a second issue which is very similar but has a publisher's label to the title page changing the date to 1937. The original advertisement and order form - a single sheet printed on both sides and folded twice - is loosly inserted. Some very minor dust-soiling to the cream cloth, tiny bruised spot at the front edge of the outer spine, slight browning to the overhanging yapp edges of the folder at the rear, some foxing to top page edges but overall a near fine, bright copy, remarkably clean and certainly one of the best copies of the true first issue extant. ¶ The Equinox of the Gods was Crowley's first published study on the origins of The Book of the Law - it includes the text of Liber AL, essays on its history and meaning, reproductions and translations of the "Stele of Revealing" (her rather famously misnamed the 'Stele of Revelling'), and a full size facsimile of the original manuscript of the book. A magnificent example of book production. 1,000 sets of sheets were printed on Japanses Vellum, but Crowley's diaries of the time record disappointing sales and rejection by formerly friendly booksellers. The 1937 issues appear to be unsold copies of the 1936 edition with the new label affixed to the title leaf, but sales were poor and a vast quantity of the sheets remained unbound and were sent to Karl Germer in the States, where they appeared in a myriad hybrid forms until as late as 1987. It is estimated by Timothy D'Arch Smith (Books of the Beast, 1987 & 1991) that 900 sets of sheets were sent to Germer, leaving fewer then 80 copies to have been issued in both the first (1936) and second (1937) issues (W.T. Smith having received 20 sets of unbound sheets as well). This may or may not be accurate, but certainly Germer had 500 sets of sheets bound up by booksellers Samuel Weiser in 1955, so the amount of unbound sets must have been quite high. A major publication, and - in this first issue - a very rare book.

        Small Archive Documenting Camp-life at the Dan Beard Camp, Boys Scout Troop 1 in Pike County, Pennsylvania, 1936-1938

      Dan Beard Camp Near Hawley, Pennsylvania, 1936. Ephemera. Very Good. Ephemera. An exceptionally scarce collection of memorabilia and ephemera from Daniel Carter Beard's summer camp. Beard, one of the founders of the Boy Scouts of America built the camp on the site of his hunting lodge, which was erected in 1883. He operated the camp from the early 1920s until 1939. Camp activities and awards were based on those in Beard's Handbook for the Sons of Daniel Boone, however campers also earned Scouting rank and merit badges as the campers formed Pike County, Pennsylvania BSA Troop #1. The collection includes 1) an 8" x 10" photograph of Beard in uniform signed "Dan Beard," 2) a typed letter on official, illustrated Boy Scouts of America letterhead signed "Daniel C. Beard," 3) five multi-color camp award certificates signed "Daniel C. Beard," 4) a number of official camp letters and records regarding one of the campers, Courtland Brown, 5) four American Red Cross first aid and life saving cards awarded to Courtland Brown at the Dan Beard Camp, 6) two 8" x 10" photographs of campers, one showing them in formation and one showing them engaged in craft activities, 7) four 3.5" x 6" photographs of campers and their tents, 8) a beaded "buckskin badge" totem, 9) two postcards of Camp Lenape, which I believe succeeded the Dan Beard Camp after it closed, and 10) newspaper articles regarding Beard's 88th birthday, his death, and his funeral. All of the photographs, signed letter, certificates, and postcards are in very nice shape. Some of the other documents have marginal insect predation. The certificates and camp photographs have scrapbook page remnants on the reverse.

        O ugruntowaniu naukowej semantyki. Odbitka z Rocznika XXXIX, zeszyt I Przegladu Filozoficznego [pp. 50-57]. Warszawa, 1936.

      - Offprint, original stapled printed wrappers, a fine copy. First edition in Polish of an important address given at the International Congress of Scientific Philosophy in Paris in 1935. It was later translated into German under the title 'Grundlegung der wissenschaftlichen Semantik' in Actes du Congrès International de Philosophie Scientifique vol. 3 (Actualités Scientifiques et Industrielles, vol. 390), Paris, 1936, and into English as 'The Establishment of Scientific Semantics'. 'In the mid-1930s the first philosophers to whom Tarski communicated the ideas of his theory of truth were Karl Popper and Rudolf Carnap, and both took to it quickly. Carnap urged Tarski to communicate it to the Unity of Science meeting in Paris in 1935; at that meeting, however, other members of the Vienna Circle (most prominently, Otto Neurath) were openly critical. The bone of contention was whether the semantical concepts could be reconciled with the strictly empiricist and anti-metaphysical point of view of the Circle. In the write-up of his talk "The Establishment of Scientific Semantics" for the Paris conference Tarski tried to make the views compatible' (A.B. & S. Feferman, Alfred Tarski: Life and Logic, Cambridge, 2004, p. 122). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      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.

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.

        The Story of Ferdinand

      New York: The Viking Press, , 1936. New York: The Viking Press, , 1936. Quarto. Original pink paper covered boards, grey cloth spine, lettering to spine in pink, pictorial endpapers, with the dust jacket. Housed in a pink quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Black and white illustrations throughout by Robert Lawson. An excellent copy in dust jacket with light rubbing to ends of spine and a bit of light soiling to top edges and flap folds. 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.

        Young Men in Spats

      New York: Doubleday, Doran & Company, 1936. 297 pages. Small octavo (7 3/4" x 5 1/2") bound in original green cloth with dark green lettering to spine and pictorial cover. 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.
