Original pictorial dj with title in black below; title in black on spine. Chip on dj at top of spine intrudes on the tops of two letters in the title, but it is still legible.

This volume is signed by two of the short story authors, Frigyes Karinthy, and Jozsef Tersanszky, and a third author with an unidentifiable signature, and dated 29/9/37. Karinthy was a Hungarian author, playwright, journalist and poet who is known as the originator of the idea of "six degrees of separation", which he first elaborated in the 1929 story "Chains". This concept posits that every person on Earth is connected through a chain of friends or acquaintances to every other person on Earth by no more than six intermediaries, or degrees. Karinthy is also known for "Voyage to Faremido", which is a continuation of Swift's adventures of Gulliver, and "Capillaria", a satire of the struggle between the sexes. & This volume is a selection of thirty short stories by thirty Hungarian authors; introducing some of them to the English reading public. Translated into English by Lawrence Wolfe and with an Introduction by Alexander Korda.

        Chronicle of My Life

      London: Gollancz, 1936 - Inscribed on the ffep, "A Sam & Louise Dushkin. Leur ami, I Stravinsky. Paris 30.3.36." Samuel Dushkin (1891-1976) was a concert violinist who worked closely with Stravinsky on the composition of the latter's Violin Concerto (1931), his first major work for the instrument. Dushkin premiered the work in concert with Stravinsky conducting the Berlin Symphony Orchestra. Stravinsky recounts his collaboration with Dushkin on pp. 268-278 of his memoir. "I was very glad to find in him, besides his remarkable gifts as a born violinist, a musical culture, a delicate understanding, and - in the exercise of his profession - an abnegation that is very rare" (p. 270). Stravinksy was inspired by his success with the Violin Concerto to compose a sonata for violin and piano which he took on tour with Dushkin to Europe and America, "- a deeper knowledge of the violin and close collaboration with a technician like Dushkin had revealed possibilities which I longed to explore" (p. 275). An important association, marking a milestone in the expansion of Stravinksy's evolution as a composer First English edition. 8vo.

        Die Waldmännlein und König Neptun.

      Micky-Maus-Verlag Bollmann,, Zürich, 1936 - Zürich, Micky-Maus-Verlag Bollmann, (1936). Gr.-8°. 43 S. Mit zahlr. z.T. ganzs. Abb. und 4 doppels. farb. Aufstellbildern von Walt Disney. Farbig illustr. Orig.-Pappband mit Schutzumschlag in Pappschuber = "Micky-Maus-Wunderbücher". Frühe deutsche Disney-Publikation, nach der adaptierten italienischen Prosa-Ausgabe übersetzt von Hans Schenk. Der Zürcher Verlag Bollmann erwarb 1936 wohl um über die allgemeine Wirtschaftskrise hinwegzukommen gleichzeitig in Paris beim europäischen Vertreter des Disney-Verlages die Hauptlizenz und in Italien bei Mondadori, der damals die Comics unter dem Namen "Topolino" in Italien publizierte, die Unterlizenzen, diese viel zu teuer trugen zum Misserfolg der Reihe "Micky-Maus-Wunderbücher" bei. Der Preis des vorliegenden Bandes von sieben Schweizer Franken war während der allgemeinen Krise viel zu hoch und die finanzielle Situation konnte auch mit der halbmonatlichen Herausgabe der Hefte, die für 25 - 30 Rappen zu haben waren, nicht verbessert werden. Die Produktion wurde nach dem 18. Heft und dem 7. Buch eingestellt, nachdem der Verlag erfolglos in Deutschland und Österreich nach Partnern gesucht hatte. Im Nazideutschland war die Publikation dieses amerikanischen Imports unerwünscht, obwohl Joseph Goebbels dem Führer 1937 18 Micky-Maus-Filme zu Weihnachten schenkte und "sie insgeheim Spass an den Zeichentrickfilmen von Walt Disney hatten" (Laqua, Carsten: Wie Micky unter die Nazis fiel.

        Turn, Magic Wheel

      Farrar & Rinehart, New York 1936 - 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. See this book in 3D on our site. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        First Publication of Raymond Chandler's Story "Guns at Cyrano's" in: Black Mask, January 1936

      New York: Pro-Distributions Publishing Company, 1936 - First Edition, First Printing. New York: Pro-Distributions Publishing Company, 1936. Vol. XVIII, No. 11. A near fine copy, the front cover of which is slightly creased, but has very few tears. Pages extremely clean, supple and much less browned than usual. Other than Chandler's "A complete novelette", contents include the Editor's "Firearms And Crime" - Frederick Nebel's "Fan Dance" - Paul Cain's "Death Song" - Dwight V. Babcock's "G-Man Chuck Thompson" - W.T. Ballard's "Numbers with Lead". In addition there are the four features "Winners of the Ninth Monthly Warner Bros.-Black Mask Contest", "Continuing the Great Warner Bros.-Black Mask Mystery Story Contest", "The Murder of Dr. Harrigan Groom", and "In February". This is a Canadian copy. On the differences between US and Canadian editions, prominent pulp seller David T. Alexander wrote to us: "In many cases collectors will pay the same for the Canadian and US printings from the mid and early 1930s. There are some collectors who feel that certain Canadian variants are much more elusive than the American version and I think this is probably correct as it does not seem that the publisher would send more copies to Canada than to the US in the 1930s when much of Canada was wilderness. The only difference in the 1930s editions is the cover price in Canadian funds and the line on the cover that says 'Printed in Canada'. The contents and ads are almost always the same as the US editions. Many historians think they were printed in the same print run at a US printing company, with the Canadian variation printed with the slight cover changes at the end of the run. In the 1940s the Canadian copies were probably printed in Canada as these have different covers, different ads for Canadian businesses with Canadian addresses, and the stories did not follow the same sequence as the US copies. Of course, the Chandler era was not in the 1940s." Malvern, hotel owner and PI, clears up the case of a mob-biased senator who is blackmailed by what turns out not to be his daughter born out of wedlock and falls for a girl called Jean Adrian - a tramp with guts and deep blue eyes. "Ted Malvern, 'All American sucker', wants to see for himself what is behind the guns at Cyrano's." This item part of our Catalogue 9, which you can download at ygrbooks.ch.
