        Malice Aforethought

      Mundanus, 1936. Mundanus, 1936. 1st edition. Yellow paper wrappers as originally issued. Most copies seen have cracked hinges and mottled or very faded covers. Remarkably, the covers of this particular copy are only faintly paled around the spine, and, although it has the usual slight lean, the hinges are sound, there is no foxing and the pages are very clean indeed. This was the first of three novels which Anthony Berkeley wrote under this pseudonym. A really nice example, scarce in this condition, of the true first printing of this ground-breaking crime novel.

        Meyers Lexikon, 8. Auflage, 9 Bände + Atlas-Band (unvollendet), 1936 - 1942 (neuwertiges Exemplar, überwiegend in Schutzumschlägen und Schubern).

      Leipzig, Bibliographisches Institut, 1936 - 1942.. Völlig neu bearbeitete und bebilderte Auflage mit circa 14.500 Spalten, 20.000 teils farbigen Abbildungen sowie 400 Haupt- und Nebenkarten. Vollständige Ausgabe in 9 Bänden (A - Soxhlet, mehr nicht erschienen) mit dem gesuchten Atlas-Band, zusammen also 10 Bände. Braune Original-Halbkunstlederbände (lederartiges Gewebe) mit goldgeprägten Rückentiteln auf roten Rückenschildern. Einbanddecken in farblich passendem hellbraunen Leinen. Einziges während der NS-Zeit erschienenes Großlexikon, das unter unmittelbarer "Mitarbeit" nationalsozialistischer Parteidienststellen entstand. Hier liegt die Crux, aber zugleich auch das Besondere dieses Lexikons, das wie kaum ein anderes Werk den nationalsozialistischen Zeitgeist in seiner Komplexität widerspiegelt. Der Atlas-Band enthält unter anderem seltenes Kartenmaterial zur politischen Topographie (u. a. Gaueinteilung der NSDAP) sowie zur Wirtschaftsgeographie (Schwerpunkte der industriellen und landwirtschaftlichen Produktion) des Dritten Reiches. Als Nachschlagewerk zum Dritten Reich daher eine wichtige Informationsquelle für alle zeitgeschichtlich Interessierten. Es erschienen lediglich die Bände 1 bis 9 (A - Soxhlet) sowie der Atlas-Band, anschließend wurde der Druck kriegsbedingt eingestellt.. Die Bände 1 bis 8 noch in den Original-Schutzumschlägen und in den Original-Schubern. Diese unbenutzten Bände befinden sich in neuwertigem Zustand, auch Schutzumschläge (von wenigen minimalen Randläsionen abgesehen) und Schuber tadellos. Bd. 9 und Atlas ohne Schutzumschläge und Schuber. Der nachträglich während des Krieges erschienene Bd. 9 - wie stets - etwas matter, sonst auch dieser Band in sehr gutem Zustand. Atlas ebenfalls tadellos. In toto frisches, nahezu neuwertiges, Exemplar dieser zeitgeschichtlich interessanten Ausgabe. Zahlreiche Verlagsprospekte - auch seltene - sowie Original-Rechnung noch beiliegend. Weitere Fotos auf der Homepage des Antiquariats (bitte Art.-Nr. auf der Angebotsseite in das Suchfeld eingeben).

        Waugh in Abyssinia - INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR TO HIS FATHER.

      Longmans, London 1936 - HARDBACK - A very good book that has been walmly inscribed by the author to his father, to the ffep. The Inscription reads BEST LOVE FROM / EVELYN. The book has the family bookplate of Arthur Waugh to the front pastedown, opposite the authors inscription. Arthur Waugh himself was an author, literary critic for the Daily Telegraph and a publisher. Mr Waugh was the Managing Director and Chairman of the publishing house Chapman & Hall from 1902 until 1930. Chapman & Hall were responsible for publishing Evelyn Waugh's novels from 1928, until the authors death in 1966. The front panel of the dust wrapper has been neatly affixed to the rear of the ffep.The book is tightly bound with no signs of spine lean. The inner pages are very clean, with no signs of foxing to the page block, or to the inner text. The book is free of any previous owner names or inscriptions. The dust wrapper is in very good condition, correctly priced at 10s/6d.net to the front flap. There is some chipping to the spine tip, with light loss to the corners of the front and rear flap folds. There is also some loss to the base of the spine. The dust wrapper is the correct first issue with the tipped in overlay blurb, which was requested by Waugh, as he was most upset with the original reviews that were printed to the front flap upon publication. The dust wrapper is a clean example with just a touch of fading to the spine. The title comes in its own custom made slip case box. The title is an exceptional association copy, Waugh family presentation titles are of the upmost rarity. [Attributes: First Edition]

An seine Mutter, die offenbar über die Freundin seines Bruders Wolfgang unglücklich war: "[...] Sei nicht traurig Du kannst es doch nicht ändern und vielleicht ist der erste Eindruck auch zu schlecht gewesen denke doch daran dass ein Mensch doch auch einen Charakter haben muss und nach allem was ich gehört habe ist das ihre beste Seite. Du musst eben über diese Dinge wegsehen, schliesslich scheint doch Wolf sehr glücklich dabei zu sein und das ist doch das was den Ausschlag gibt. Ich verstehe Dich ja, aber siehst Du, das sind Dinge die man nicht sieht, wenn man jemanden lieb hat. Ich weiss es doch von mir selbst. Nimm es so, wie es ist und grüble nicht darüber. Man kann doch nie im Voraus etwas beurteilen und Frl. Strasser ist furchtbar gehemmt bei dem Gedanken, Dir Unbequemlichkeiten zu machen, sei lieb zu ihr. Du weißt sicher dass es ein wertvoller Mensch ist [...]". - Mit gedrucktem Briefkopf des "Grand Hotel Milano & Helvetia"; gelocht, kurze Faltenrisse fixiert; rechter Rand angestaubt; Transkriptionen einzelner Wörter im Text.

        Powerful and Historically Important Typed Letter Signed

      London: , 1936 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 sanctions...as 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.
