      1936 - [JAPANESE POSTER] Osaka Mainichi Shimbunsha. KAGAYAKU NIPPON DAIHAKURANKAI [THE GREAT EXHIBITION OF BRILLIANT JAPAN] & KAGAYAKU NIPPONHAKU Annaiki. The poster was printed by Osaka Seihan printing company in their patented high-quality "HB" process, which they used to reproduce the effect of color woodblock, etc. With an (unread) artist's seal. Dated on the recto April/May 1936 this large poster (60.8 X 107 cm.) displays bold colors and near abstract design which shows the progress of Japanese industry as a freighter ship evolves pictorially in ascent through a great gear wheel, to an airplane, and then a skyscraper with pennants, all mediated by repeated circular images of a golden sun and red sun akadama images from the national flag. Considering its size, the fragility of the paper and its age, the edgewear and creasing, along with a bit of foxing, leaves this piece still unusually clean and bright with older backing and color restoration. Presents very well. Perhaps the most interesting and arresting piece of industrial art design from its time we have seen in a poster format. The accompanying large 8vo. brochure in color wraps is the guidebook for the Exposition. Printed as a revised edition at the time of the show, 1936. Illustrated internally with b+w photo illustrations of exhibits, ceremonies, etc., etc. The rear cover reproduces the very poster that we are offering here. The guidebook is quite worn, with some paper repairs. Very scarce and interesting combination of these ephemeral items from Japan's prewar golden age of design. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      (HUGNET, GEORGES) (DUCHAMP, MARCEL). Hugnet, Georges. GEORGES HUGNET: LA SEPTIEME FACE DU DÉ: POEMES - DECOUPAGES (COUVERTURE DE MARCEL DUCHAMP). Paris: Editions Jeanne Bucher, 1936. First Edition 1/250. 4to. Sewn Illustrated Wrappers. Livre D'Artiste. Good +./No Jacket - As Issued.. (84pp), profusely illustrated in small woodcuts along with 15 color and 5 full page monochrome collotype plates + b&w cover. Cover designed by Marcel Duchamp. Text in French. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. "La Septieme Face du Dé" is repeatedly acknowledged as one of the triumphs of the Surrealist illustrated book. It masterfully combines twenty of Hugnet's prose poems alongside overtly erotic, beautifully collaged and photomontaged images. The cover design and typography by Marcel Duchamp was created especially for the publication featuring a Man Ray photograph of the sculpture "Why Not Sneeze Rrose Selavy". This example (number forty-four of the two hundred and fifty copies on vélin) shows soiling, patination, and wear to the wrappers - most notably a tiny chip missing from the front cover at the crown of the spine and diagonal soft-creases through each of its foredge corners. The top and bottom edges of the wrappers show some wear and abrading, and the rear cover is slightly sunned along its extremities. The contents and textblock are intact and sound, and for the most part quite bright though showing a bit of foxing to the inside front cover, the front free endpaper, and the first few pages along the foredge. The edges display typical mild age patination and soiling, and there is in addition a tiny diagonal soft-crease to a portion of the textblock at the upper foredge corner. Still in all, this is a most presentable copy of this exquisite tome (cited on pages 92-93 of "The Book of 101 Books") that has been housed in a modest protective custom cloth chemise slipcase. It has been priced accordingly. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase.

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

      New York: Macmillan Company, 1936. First Edition. The second collaborative effort by John and Alan Lomax, less a study of Negro folk songs than the oral autobiography of Huddie William Ledbetter, known to his friends as "Lead Belly." While traveling the southern states recording folk songs for the Library of Congress, the Lomax's met Ledbetter - a double murderer - at the State Penitentiary in Angola, Louisiana. The convict was known for his skill with a guitar, and was kept as a trusty by the warden, frequently called on to play and sing for guests. Upon his release, Ledbetter went to work for John Lomax, assisting him with recordings and acting as his driver. Much of the narrative is told in Ledbetter's rich dialect, telling of his upbringing, life, women, his crimes, and his time spent in prisons. An extensive collection of blues and folk ballads is gathered, with frequent notes offered either by Lomax or Ledbetter. Lead Belly went on to have a career as a highly-regarded performer until his death in 1949. A book that is seldom found in dustjacket, the present copy being one of the more attractive examples we have seen. First Printing. Small quarto (24cm); coarse-grained yellow cloth, with titles stamped in red on spine and front panel; black topstain; dustjacket; 242pp. Topstain slightly faded, faint offsetting from jacket flaps onto pastedowns and endpapers, with a few foxed spots to right edge of textblock; Near Fine. Dustjacket is price-clipped, but with a $3.50 rubberstamped price to the left of the clip (consistent with all other copies we have seen); some shallow chipping to spine ends and corners (not affecting lettering), orange coloring faded to yellow on spine panel, with a few small splash marks and faint vertical crease to same; lightly edgeworn, with a few tears archivally mended on verso, and some old, faint dampstaining along upper flap folds, mostly noticeable on verso; still a complete, Very Good example.

      MacMillan Co. New York 1936 - First Edition. Small quarto, original cloth and Otto Hesse photograph illustrated dustjacket. "Lead Belly, a double murderer, has sung his way to pardons in the Texas and Louisiana Penitentiaries.

His throat has been cut from ear to ear and his left cheek slashed open in barrell-house brawls. The accordion, guitar, mouth-harp, piano and bass-fiddle have all been easy for him, but the twelve-string guitar, of which he is the self-acknowledged 'king' is his favorite instrument." Includes chapters on Reels, Work Songs, Hollers, The Blues, The Talkin' Blues, Ballads and White Influences and Pardon Songs.

        JAFSIE TELLS ALL! Revealing the Inside Story of the Lindbergh-Hauptmann Case

      Jonathan Lee 1936 - Hardback. Dr. John F. (Jafsie) Condon's own story revealing the inside story of the Lindbergh-Hauptmann kidnapping. Taken from the dw. 'blurb' : 'Of "the greatest criminal case in all human history," probably ten million words have been written.In this case, three figures stand out above all others. They are : Colonel Charles A. Lindbergh, Dr. John F. (Jafsie) Condon, and Bruno Richard Hauptmann. The first will probably never tell his story, the third cannot tell his, while as to the second - for almost four years he steadfastly refused to do so, except for his trial testimony, even in the face of misrepresentation, vituperation, and vile slander. Why did Jafsie refuse to answer his slanderers directly? Only those who know this remarkable man personally understand.He insisted on maintaining silence until the appeal of Hauptmann's conviction had been passed upon by the Highest Court. Yet Doctor Condon, for fifty years a teacher in our public schools.beloved by his neighbors and their children; this same Doctor Condon, 75 years of age. a devoted father, gentle of voice, kindly of manner, considerate of others, ever ready to help the unfortunate. he it is who was called "King of the Kidnappers," and "Hauptmann's Accomplice." This might well have been a matter for laughter and ridicule on Doctor Condon's part, for he has a keen sense of humor, had not a mother's broken heart in her agony of tears, stilled his lips. But now the scene has changed.Now the trial is long past, the verdict given, the conviction upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States. Now the real truth can be told; the scandal-mongers, the yellow press, the vultures and jackals of tragedy and death driven to cover. In the following pages, the gentle Doctor Condon, Titan of courage, devout man of faith, fervent patriot, tells for the permanent record of History.the true story of the vital, heroic part he played in the Lindbergh-Hauptmann case - a part that will go down through Time as one of the finest, most unselfish records of conduct any man could bequeath to posterity.' Illus. 238pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Nr. F. in chipped and frayed pcdw. An extremely rare title.

        POEMS (AND NEARLY) [and Untitled]. Two Presentation Portfolios of Manuscript and Typescript Poems.

      [San Francisco, January 1915, and ca. 1936]. - Two volumes. [40] leaves, and [42] leaves. Quarto, laid into two folding portfolios (approx. 29 x 22 cm), the earliest being watercolor decorated paper over cardboard, with old calf fore-tips to the upper board, the later cloth-backed boards, the upper board decorated in ink with a small rendition by Dixon of a thunderbird and a small monogram on the lower board. Some modest edgewear to portfolios, but generally very good or better. Two significant collections of Dixon's poetry in typescript, carbon typescript, and autograph manuscript, with occasional corrections, revisions and annotations, prepared personally by him for presentation. The earliest, which includes twenty-six poems, includes a manuscript title- leaf in his hand: "Poems, (and Nearly)," with a small ink rendering of a thunderbird, and is inscribed: "Franc from Maynard Jan - 1915." The title leaf is accompanied by a manuscript index of the included poems, also embellished with an ink drawing. All of the poems in this album are present in either carbon or original typescript, most bearing the approximate or exact dates and places of composition, the latter information occasionally revised or amplified in ink or pencil by Dixon. The earliest poem in this album dates from 1896, the latest from 1914. The second, later album includes no formal title, but opens with a leaf inscribed in pencil: "Betty - I don't believe you will like these - But here they are - it's you asking. M.D." It consists of thirty-five poems in typescript or carbon typescript (two - including the important poem "Jeffers" - with significant manuscript revisions, a couple more with minor manuscript tinkerings, and two signed at the end with initials in coarse pencil, with date and/or place), and three wholly in manuscript, in ink, in Dixon's bold hand. Two of the typescript poems in this album, "San Francisco" (1913) and "Nebula" (1914), appear in the earlier album, the first from a definitively different typing of the text. The latest poem in this album bears a 1936 date of composition. "Jeffers," which bears meaningful manuscript revisions, is undated in this draft, but is dated "ca. 1925" in its published form. All but one of the poems in these albums are printed in some form in the authoritative edition of Dixon's poetry, edited by his widow, Edith Hamlin (RIM-ROCK AND SAGE THE COLLECTED POEMS OF MAYNARD DIXON, California Historical Society, 1977), although occasionally under variant titles or with minor variations in their texts. One poem in the later album, entitled "Japs," is uncollected and may have been omitted by Hamlin due to its rather strident and painfully negative ethnic caricatures. Maynard Dixon (1875 - 1946) has long been regarded one of the most significant artists and illustrators of the American West and Southwest, but his parallel career as a poet is less widely known. Although a number of his poems appeared in the western periodical press, his sole lifetime book publication is the now elusive POEMS AND SEVEN DRAWINGS, privately printed by the Grabhorns in 1923. While his painting and drawing commissions claimed much of his attention during the remaining 23 years of his life, he continued to write poetry until at least as late as 1937, touching on many of the same themes as drove his drawings and paintings, both public and personal: the terrain, people (most particularly the native peoples) and history of the West, with a critical but not wholly unsympathetic eye toward certain tendencies of modernism, all coupled with a strain of physical consciousness occasionally bordering on the erotic. In his Preface to RIM-ROCK AND SAGE, J.S. Holiday denotes the 164 poems collected therein as "every known poem by the artist." The sixty-one poems preserved by Dixon in these two albums span virtually his entire career as a poet, representing over one third of that known output, and the collection adds one hitherto unpublished poem to that number.

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,". Very good. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Alice's Adventures Under Ground

      [Privately printed by Max Jaffe, Vienna, for Eldridge Johnson,, 1936]. Octavo. Original limp green morocco, double gilt rules, titles in gilt on front cover, yellow endpapers, gilt edges, with original glassine (spine defective); in original green card slipcase. Collotype facsimile reproducing manuscript text and 37 illustrations by the author, 14 full-page; mounted photograph of Alice Liddell at foot of last page, with loose folded overslip. With additional material loosely inserted: (a) a photograph of Mrs Hargreaves (Alice Liddell) with her grandchild, with pencilled annotation on the back in Johnson's autograph; (b) typed letter signed from Alice Liddell's son, Captain Caryl Hargreaves, to Eldridge Johnson, 1 page, dated 6 April 1933, thanking Johnson for the gift of a book, and relaying his mother's greetings; (c) offprint article, Swan, Bradford F., "Auctioning 'Alice'", from The Providence Journal, 4 April 1946, 8pp. wire-stitched in printed wrappers. A rare facsimile of Carroll's original manuscript of Alice's Adventures under Ground, privately printed for Eldridge Reeves Johnson (1867-1945), who bought the manuscript from Dr Rosenbach in 1928. Johnson had made his fortune as co-founder of the Victor Talking Machine Company. The exact edition size is not recorded, though it is likely to have been 50 copies only for private distribution. From the nature of the additional inserted material, this would appear to be a copy retained by Johnson's family. "It is not too extravagant to say that this production is as near perfection as is possible for a printed facsimile. It has been said that if this facsimile is put beside the original, the only way that they may be distinguished is that the facsimile is in better condition" (Selwyn Goodacre & Denis Crutch, Jabberwocky, 1978).
