        L'Orphelin de la Brousse... et Chut le Kangourou Boxeur

      Paris: Imp. Henon, circa, 1936. Colour-printed poster (120 x 80 cm.); some wear along the folds, and a little dusted, but in remarkably good condition; original Dutch release stamp at upper left. The most famous kangaroo in Australia. An early appearance of what would become a classic Australian emblem - the boxing kangaroo. Skippy's predecessor, Chut was for a while 'the most famous kangaroo in Australia'. This wonderful large poster advertises a European showing of the Australian cinematic triumph The Orphan of the Wilderness. Although Australian actors including Owen Muro, José Valli, and Sylvia Kellaway, are all given space on the poster, the real star of the piece is Chut, the boxing kangaroo. The film was directed by Ken G. Hall, perhaps better known today for his involvement in On Our Selection (1932) or Dad and Dave Come to Town (1938). Paul Byrnes has written about the movie that it was 'one of the first features to use Australian wildlife as its prime attraction, and it was popular. Chut became the most famous kangaroo in Australia until Skippy came along in a television series in the 1960s… The most remarkable feature of the film is the opening sequence, where we see a mob of kangaroos living in an idyllic forest, with koalas and emus and dingoes. The forest was created from scratch in the Cinesound studio in Bondi by art director J Alan Kenyon. The kangaroos actually look like they've been there some time, and the studio setting allowed cameraman George Heath to capture some beautiful close-ups of the animals.' 'The graphic symbol of a boxing kangaroo became popular as 'nose-art' on aircraft flown by Australian airmen in the Second World War, and continues to be painted on RAAF aircraft. It was also the mascot for the Australian sailors who won the America's Cup yacht race in 1983. Contests between men and kangaroos were a frequent 'attraction' in travelling tent shows in Australia in the 19th century…' (source: - where there are some clips from the movie to be seen).

        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.

        Cup of Gold

      NY, Covici Friede, 1936, first edition thus, dust jacket. Hardcover. 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.
