        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. .

        Red Hot and Blue

      New York: Random House. 1936. First. First edition. A bit of foxing to the boards, and a touch of rubbing, all considered a very good or better copy of a book which, because of the fragile silk-over-boards binding, is generally found in poor condition. Issued without dustwrapper. Copy number 84 of 300 copies Signed by the author/composer (of which 250 were for sale). On the front pastedown is the small bookplate of the composer's wife, Linda Porter. The Porters were married from 1919 to her death in 1954, and Linda has been portrayed in film biographies of Cole Porter by Alexis Smith (1946's Night and Day) and Ashley Judd (2004's De-Lovely). Despite Cole Porter's well-documented homosexuality and the common assumption that their marriage was merely one of convenience, they appeared to be a genuinely compatible couple. .

      Hogarth Press, London 1936 - Keynes, John Maynard. THE GENERAL THEORY OF EMPLOYMENT, INTEREST AND MONEY. Signed. London: Macmillan and Co., 1936.

Signature of E. B. Hodgson on ffe. with remnants of old tape marks where a neat cut Keynes signature was held in place & is now tipped there. Printing And The Mind Of Man 423. "Critical reaction to his great book was inconclusive. To young economists it was a 'Manifesto of Reason and Cheerfulness'. To most of their elders it was little more than an inflationist tract, 'the dying voice of the bourgeois crying in the wilderness for the profits it dare not fight for', as Joseph Schumpeter put it. Most of Keynes's Cambridge colleagues sat on the fence, shaken but sceptical". Skidelsky, Robert. John Maynard Keynes. Fighting For Britain. 1937-1946. Keynes's masterwork, written in the aftermath of the great depression of 1929 is generally considered the most influential global social science treatise of the century. The General Theory quickly & permanently changed the way the world looked at the economy & the role of government in society. A very nice copy. Tucked into the back is a copy of the June-July ECONOMIC NEWS, Vol 20 Nos. 6 and 7. featuring John Maynard Keynes. 10 printed pages on stapled cream stock, folded at the middle.

        The General Theory of Employment Interest and Money.

      London, Macmillan, 1936. - XII, 403 S., goldgeprägter O.-Leinwand-Band (Einband minimal berieben). Zweiter Druck, erschienen einen Monat nach der Erstausgabe. Arbeitsexemplar des Wirtschaftswissenschaftlers Carl Föhl und daher für die Dogmengeschichte der sogenannten deutschen Vorkeynesianer äußerst aufschlußreiches Dokument! Enthält zahlreiche Unterstreichungen, Anstreichungen und Marginalien in Bleistift, sowie auf den letzten weißen Seiten und im Innendeckel handschriftliche Notizen; u.a. eine ausführliche Liste mit "Übereinstimmungen". Föhl hatte nach seinem Maschinenbaustudium in Karlsruhe zunächst als Ingenieur bei der AEG in Berlin gearbeitet, war dann Berechnungsingenieur in Stockholm, von 1929 bis 1931 Geschäftsführer der Ruths G.m.b.H. in Berlin und von 1931 bis 1935 Chefingenieur der Ruths-International in New-York. 1930 hatte er an der TU in Berlin zum Dr.Ing. promoviert. 1935 übernahm Föhl die Geschäftsführung des 'Vereins zur Beförderung des Gewerbefleißes von 1821'. "Carl Föhl's Buch 'Geldschöpfung und Wirtschaftskreislauf' verdankt der 'General Theory' von Keynes überhaupt nichts, weil, wie der Autor im Vorwort feststellt, das Manuskript bereits im Dezember 1935 fertiggestellt war, so daß der Autor nurmehr gelegentliche Hinweise auf die 'General Theory' einfügen konnte. Um so überraschender sind mehrere Fälle der Parallelität zwischen seinen und den Keynesschen Lehrsätzen, obwohl für den anglo-amerikanischen Leser das volle Maß der Uebereinstimmung auf den ersten Blick nicht ersichtlich sein wird. Dies ist auf zwei Tatsachen zurückzuführen: Dr. Föhl verwandte einen anderen Begriffsapparat und gelangte zu seinen Schlußfolgerungen mit Hilfe von Methoden, die geeignet sind, jene Uebereinstimmung zu verschleiern; und außerdem schrieb er in einer anderen Umgebung, . Aber gerade deshalb wäre das Studium dieses Buches für die amerikanischen Oekonomen außerordentlich lehrreich: gerade infolge seiner nicht-Keynesianischen Methode offenbart es eine (objektive) Verwandschaft der Lehrmeinungen und rückt verschiedene Keynes'sche Probleme, besonders das der Gleichgewichts-Unterbeschäftigung, in ein neues Licht."

        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."

        A Clergyman's Daughter

      New York: Harper & Brothers 1st American Edition 1936 - ----------hardcover, no dust jacket. The uncommon first US edition, only 500 (or 1000, sources differ) copies printed. The first edition was published by Gollancz in the UK the previous year, 1935, and this book uses the sheets of the UK first edition. The book is incorrectly titled The Clergyman's Daughter on the spine, and correctly titled A Clergyman's Daughter elsewhere. The book is in blue cloth on boards, with off-white design to the front boards, and off-white lettering and design to the spine. The off-white design and lettering has likely faded from the original pink, although the book is not sunned, and the lettering and design are clear and distinct. The book has modest bumps to the spine extremities, is dusty on the top pages edge, has minor staining to the boards, has the former owner nameplate (and 1938 date) on the front endpaper, and is a very solid VG to VG+ copy.

        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.
