        Test Tube Baby

      New York: Godwin, Publishers. Good. 1936. First Edition. Hardcover. (no dust jacket) [ex-rental library book, marked only with stamped library name on both endpapers ("Property of Green Tree Library"), moderate external wear, front hinge a little weak, spotting/soiling to covers]. The second of three pulp novels published published by Fuller under his own name in the 1930s (he claimed in his autobiography to have written many more, under a variety of pseudonyms). The story, as Fuller explained it, has to do with a young man who had been "conceived scientifically, then brought up by his mother to be the ideal son." However, Mom wasn't counting on her grown-up boy eventually learning some additional facts of life from an amoral young lady named Peggy, "a fascinating wench who may not have eaten her spinach but certainly knew her onions." A rarity for sure, and like Fuller's first novel, "Burn, Baby, Burn!," a vivid embodiment of the future film director's pulp-fiction-tabloid-journalism sensibility. .

        The Princess Comes Across (Original screenplay for the 1936 film)

      Los Angeles, CA: Paramount Pictures, 1936. Draft script for the 1936 film. A very interesting early draft of the script, with a cast page that includes George Raft, who was replaced by Fred MacMurray late in pre-production. Raft left the production when Ted Tetzlaff was announced as the director, as Tetzlaff had caused Lombard to outshine Raft in the duo's previous film, "Rumba." MacMurray's placement against Lombard was fortuitous, as the pair (who had made "Hands Across the Table" the previous year) went on to make "Swing High, Swing Low" and "True Confessions" after this film.& & One of the most cynical and underrated screwball comedies, with Lombard and MacMurray at the peak of their speed-talking greatness. Tightly wound into the story of Lombard posing as the (fake) Swedish Princess Olga and MacMurray's no-nonsense, accordion-playing bandleader with a shady past is a rather dense murder mystery that plays out in tandem with the screwball structure.& & Recently rebound in tan cloth, with the original blue front wrapper adhered to the front board. Front wrapper shows a date of February 4th, 1936. Title page present, dated February 4, 1936. 141 leaves, mimeograph, with blue revision pages throughout, dated variously between 2-7-36 and 2-14-36. Pages about Fine, boards about Fine.& & Harvey, pp. 214-215.

        Gutenberg and the Catholicon of 1460. A bibliographical essay by Margaret Bingham Stillwell. Together with an original leaf

      "Edmund Byrne Hackett, the Brick Row Bookshop, Inc." New York: "Edmund Byrne Hackett, the Brick Row Bookshop, Inc.". 1936. "Folio, pp. [10], 27, [1]; original blindstamped maroon cloth lettered in gilt, maroon cloth chemise and slipcase; generally fine. With a typed letter from Edmund Byrne Hackett laid in acknowledging payment for this copy. & & The leaf is from the imperfect Sloane- Poor- Kretch copy, leaves of which were sold by the Brick Row Book Shop as late as the early 1960s, and the bulk of which were originally distributed with Stillwell's essay in 1936. & & The leaf itself (printed in Mainz, by the printer of the Catholicon, not before 1469) measures approximately 14½"" x 11"", with rubricated initials, text in double column, 66 lines per column. The Catholicon, while not as famous as its old brother, the 42-line Bible, is noted for its being the first book to name its place of printing, and the first extensive work of a secular nature to be published. Compiled by Joannes Balbus, the text consists of a grammar and a dictionary of mediaeval Latin - it is the first dictionary ever printed - and treats the etymology of Latin terms in vogue during the Middle Ages. The leaf accompanying this copy is from the letter O, ""Occidentalis"" to ""Offela,"" and including the work ""oculus"" for which there is a 20-line definition.& & Goff B20; Hain-Copinger 2254*; GW 3182; BMC I, 39.

        Memoirs of an Unconventional Soldier

      London: Ivor Nicholson and Watson Limited,, 1936. Octavo. Original red cloth, title gilt to the spine, red top-stain. Double portrait frontispiece and 7 other plates, 5 folding maps and 11 pages of diagrams at the rear. A little rubbed, the spine sunned, top-stain a touch faded and with a slight tide-mark in the rear corner, endpapers and edges mildly foxed, overall a very good copy. First edition of this far from common autobiography of the pioneer of all tank pioneers. A wonderful association copy, inscribed on the front free endpaper; "To Cuthbert Headlam - in remembrance of the days in which we lived, and each in our own small way strove to do something worth doing - from JFC Fuller, 24/4/36," and with a one-page autograph letter signed from Fuller to Headlam of the same date, together with Headlam's version of their meeting in a page of pencilled notes. In it Fuller apologises for the account of given in the book of his meeting with Headlam during the War. As Fuller recalled it, he was requested to "give all the assistance [he] could to Major C. Headlam, who had been instructed to write a Tank Manual." Fuller found this strange as "thus far all notes etc., on tank tactics and training had been written by myself." Not so strange, as Headlam was at this time the British Expeditionary Force's principal doctrine writer. Headlam visited Fuller at Tank Corps HQ at Bermicourt Château "to be primed up. He stated quite frankly that he knew nothing about tanks. Then I asked him if he were a regular soldier, and as he said 'No,' I replied; 'Well, anyhow you will start without a handicap." Headlam remembered differently, as his pencilled notes included here show. When he had confessed to his lack of knowledge about tanks, Fuller had asked him how he could possibly write a manual on the subject, and in answer to his enquiry about the available literature had thrown open "a huge cupboard which went all along the wall - thus displaying endless files." To which Headlam explained that he couldn't possibly wade through "all that stuff," and requested that Fuller "sort out the files you think most important … what I want is a good brief." Headlam concludes "We parted firm friends and he sent me the files … I produced the manual which (for the time being at any rate) satisfied the tank men and the infantry commanders. Of course it was quite obvious that JF was anxious to write the manual himself, but that he was quite the wrong man to do so." In his letter Fuller apologises for appearing "disparaging," and agrees that "I ought to have mentioned the pamphlet, it was a good one, but like so many of GHQ productions came out too late to be of real use." Concluding, "What I liked about it most was that you did not see difficulties. I am always accused for overlooking the difficulties of others; but surely nine-tenths of the art of war consists in doing this." Headlam's engraved armorial bookplate to the front pastedown.

        Gone With the Wind

      New York: The Macmillan Company, 1936 First edition, first printing, dated May 1936. Finely bound in full blue Morocco, with five raised bands and gilt ruled panels to the spine, gilt lettering and contrasting leather labels to the spine. A near fine or better copy, with a hint of rubbing to the spine, light spotting to the front free endpapers and the half-title page, a hint of spotting to the page edges, else fine. Overall, a clean and extremely attractive copy. Gone with the Wind won Margaret Mitchell both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. Perhaps best described as a work of historical fiction, Gone with the Wind also has many of the trappings of a traditional bildungsroman and romance novel, although critics argue that it does not fully fall under the category of either genre. The novel tells of archetypal Southern belle Scarlett O'Hara as she grows from a young woman into maturity against the backdrop of the American Civil War. Like many of the early 20th century Southern writers, Mitchell portrays an idyllic image of the antebellum South. While it can be legitimately criticized for its insensitivity to the treatment of African Americans who were enslaved, Mitchell's novel demonstrates how the South was decimated by the Civil War and continued to suffer under the Northern-sanctioned Restoration. Also the basis of the 1939 Academy Award-winning movie, the conflicted love story of rebellious Scarlett and Rhett Butler remains an American classic.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        Le Karma Yoga ou L'action Dans la Vie Selon la Sagesse Hindoue. (Karma Yoga or action in the world according to Hindu wisdom.)

      An exceptional specimen of this early work by Felix Guyot, a philosophy and yoga teacher instrumental in introducing Yoga practice to the Western World. Offered complete in the publisher's decorated wrappers is example no. 11 from the deluxe issue of the first edition, limited to 20 numbered copies and printed on woven handmade Lafuma paper. Reserved for the author, it was given with an inscription of thanks in French to Fernand Brouty, co-director (from 1936) of Editions Fayard: with Jules Tallandier, he supervised Editions Jules Tallandier, the publisher of the book. The association presentation is done in a graceful fluid hand with widely spaced lines in pen & blue ink on the half-title page and signed C. Kerneïz. FELIX GUYOT: turned from a career as a philosophy teacher in Nantes to the teaching and promotion of Yoga. While he was not the first to teach Yoga postures in Europe, he is widely credited with establishing the first Yoga school in France, and as a teacher and author, he became highly influential. Among his notable students were the Yoga teachers, Lucien Ferrer and Philippe de Meric. Ferrer said regarding Guyot, "Un grand occultiste moderne, à qui nous devons la vulgarisation technique du Hatha-Yoga et, personnellement, notre première dynamisation dans cette science".

        STORY OF FERDINAND

      1936. 1. LEAF,MUNRO. THE STORY OF FERDINAND. NY: Viking 1936 (Sept. 1936). 8vo (7 x 9 1/2"), cloth backed pictorial boards, a few spots on endpapers else near Fine condition in dust wrapper (dw is very nice, not price clipped, some spine sunning with a few small chips on corners and slight fraying at spine ends). THIS COPY IS INSCRIBED BY MUNRO LEAF "YOURS FO BETTER AND QUIETER SITTING, MUNRO LEAF" DATED SEPTEMBER 1936 (the month of publication)! First edition, 1st printing of one of the most popular and enduring children's books ever written. Illustrated in incomparable style by ROBERT LAWSON. "It is dynamic text and no less vital picturization" (Bader p. 145). Amazingly enough, Little Brown turned down the offer to publish Ferdinand, which Viking accepted only after much persuasion! Considered subversive in some circles because Ferdinand wanted to make love, not war, this was later made into a successful Disney movie. Exceedingly scarce signed and in such nice condition.

        AUTORI E SCRITTORI - direttore TOMMASO FILIPPO MARINETTI con CORRADO GOVONI dir. responsabile - 1936-1942 consistente parte di TUTTO IL PUBBLICATO, Roma, Tipografia Cuggiani, 1936

      cm 21,2 x 31. Brossure sciolte in buone condizioni, pp.16 cadauna. Importante rivista che ha un suo posto di rilievo nella storia del FUTURISMO. II periodico era diretto da MARINETTI, con CORRADO GOVONI direttore responsabile. Citiamo dalla pag.267 della Storia del Futurismo della SALARIS: ".... nel periodo di guerra il mensile sindacale assume un carattere più spiccatamente "parafuturista", ospitando proclami di Marinetti e molti contributi teorici e creativi degli autori a lui legati. Solo negli ultimi anni del fascismo, dunque, sembra realizzarsi concretamente l'aspirazione marinettiana di portare l'avanguardia nella ufficialità , acquisendo uno "status". Il futurismo conquista il sindacato, gestendone la rivista come una propria tribuna....". Nella collezione, oltre a tantissimi e importanti interventi di MARINETTI (è presente in molti dei fascicoli), ci sono vari scritti di letterati ma anche di numerosi "futuristi": Acquaviva G., Angelini C., Baccelli A., Balbis P., Bellanova P., Benco S., BENEDETTA, Betocchi C., Bonelli L., Bontempelli M., Bordiga A., Bruno F., BUZZI PAOLO, CANGIULLO F., Caniglia G., Caretta C.M., Castellani M., Cataldi E., Ciarlantini, Comisso G., Corneli F., CORRA B., Cremonese P., Cuesta Ugo, De Nardo C., Di Franco L., Di Marzio C., Ersoch G., Fabbri C., Falchi A., Farrau A., Fiumi Maria L., Flora F., Forcella E., Franchi R., Fraticelli V., Gabrielli A., Gatto S., Ghirola, GINNA A., Goretti M., GOVONI C.(molti interventi), Levi M.A., Lipparini G., Luchini A., Luongo G., Malpassuti V., Mancini G., Marini E., MASNATA PINO, Meletti Suzzi, Negri Ada, Notari U., Palmieri F., Pini Giorgio, Pratolini, Praz Mario, Profeta O., Puccetti C., Ruggi Lorenzo, Sanminiatelli Bino, Serra Laura, SOMENZI M., Sulis E., Toschi P., Valerio Ettore, VIVIANI A., ecc. Il periodico tratta anche dei problemi sindacali relativi alle attività letterarie, ai diritti d'autore, alle traduzioni, alle trasmissioni in voce, radio e poesia, etc. Compaiono inoltre numerosi racconti e poesie di molti letterati dell'epoca. ANNO PRIMO 1936 (inizia con il num,1 del maggio fino al n. 8 di dicembre). ANNO SECONDO 1937 - completo 1-12 ANNO TERZO 1938 - mancano n. 6,9,10,11. ANNO QUARTO 1939 - mancano n. 7,9.
