        News From Tartary: A Journey from Peking to Kashmir

      London: Jonathan Cape,, 1936. Octavo. Original red cloth, titles to spine and upper board gilt, red top-stain. With the dust jacket. Frontispiece and illustrations from photos throughout, folding map. Spine a little rolled. An excellent copy in the jacket with minor repairs to the ends of the spine panel. First edition, first impression. The author, Peter Fleming (1907–1971) was an editor at The Spectator, as well as a seasoned traveller and sportsman. In August 1834 he "once again set off for the Far East with a far-ranging commission from The Times. After a brief shooting trip with friends in the Caucasus he travelled on to Harbin in Manchuria, where by chance he met the Swiss traveller Ella (Kini) Maillart. It transpired that they both wanted to walk and ride from China to India, and though they both preferred to travel alone, they agreed to join forces. This epic journey of some 3500 miles on foot or ponies, through the remote province of Sinkiang (Xinjiang), with many dangers, hardships, and hold-ups, took them seven months, from February to September 1935. This, the most arduous of Fleming's long journeys, he chronicled in fourteen long articles in The Times and later in his book News from Tartary (1936)" (ODNB).

        Den knutna näven. Andra upplagan.

      Stockholm, Albert Bonniers förlag, 1936. 128 s. Häftad, tryckta omslag, fint exemplar. Dedikation: »Till Curt Weibull med tack för de oförgätliga dagarna och för Enhetstanken i Norden / Pär Lagerkvist».. Minne av Pär Lagerkvists promotion till hedersdoktor vid Göteborgs högskola i oktober 1941. Lagerkvist tackade högskolans rektor, historieprofessorn Curt Weibull (1886-1991, rektor 1936-1946) för kallelsen till hedersdoktor i brev den 21 augusti. Han finner det passande att bli hedersdoktor just i Göteborg, där han mött »sympati och förståelse tidigare än på andra håll», dessutom kände han sig med anledning av huset på Tjörn som västkustbo. Lagerkvist gruvar sig för högtidligheten men lovar försöka övervinna sin rädsla för ceremonier och komma, och infann sig också verkligen till promotion och festmiddag i Göteborg den 11 oktober samma år. Efteråt sände han Weibull detta exemplar av Den knutna näven, med en hänvisning till dennes promotionsföreläsning »Enhetstanken i Norden». Valet av bok överraskar inte, det världspolitiska läget hade figurerat stort i flera av festtalen i Göteborg och Den knutna näven representerar i hög grad Lagerkvists »kämpande humanism» under de svåra krigsåren, just den hållning som låg bakom kallelsen till hedersledamot.<p>Ur motiveringen (cit. efter Möller (2012), s. 197-98): »Må jag som Musagetes få nämna Pär Lagerkvist, den svenske diktaren i våra dagar som främst förtjänar siarnamnet, som skådat in i tidens mörker men också låtit blicken tränga genom mörkret mot de evärdliga ideal som lyst de ädlaste av vårt släkte.»

        Language, Truth and Logic

      New York: Oxford University Press, 1936 First American edition of perhaps the most influential English philosophy book of the twentieth century, in which he defines the verification principle of logical positivism. The first edition, published by Gollancz in January of 1936, was limited to only 500 copies. A second printing, published in April of 1936, was published in 250 copies. This American edition, printed from the English sheets, appeared later in 1936. All of these are uncommon in dust jacket. Presentation copies, however, are of the greatest rarity. In forty years of dealing in philosophy books of this nature, we have never before owned one. Publisher's blue cloth with gilt spine. Octavo. Light shelfwear, dust jacket partially browned. Jacket has light edgewear, and tear at spine has been neatly repaired internally with archival tape. A very good copy, scarce in dust jacket. Presentation copy, inscribed: "To Michael Curtis with best wishes from Freddie Ayer May 22, 1985."

      1936. Paperback. [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&#39;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&#39;s prewar golden age of design.

      London: George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd, 1936. First (British) Printing of this Edition. Hardcover. Very Fine, in Rare and Very Fine Jacket. 260 x 197 mm (10 1/4 x 7 3/4"). 255, [3] pp. First (British) Printing of this Edition. Original publisher&#39;s linen boards, original pictorial dust jacket. With 12 COLOR PLATES (including frontispiece) BY ARTHUR RACKHAM, all protected by tissue guards with descriptive letterpress. Latimore & Haskell, p. 74. Dust jacket with tiny chip out of bottom edge of back panel and two very minor closed tears at bottom of front panel, a little chafing at folds, but still A VERY FINE COPY IN A FINE JACKET. This is an especially well-preserved copy of the first British trade edition (appearing the same year as a British limited edition and an American trade edition) of Rackham&#39;s "Peer Gynt," written by Ibsen in 1867. The translator here, R. Farquharson Sharp (1864-1945), says that his translation is an improvement over former ones because he has refused the temptation of retaining the rhymed verse of the original. He has instead chosen unrhymed verse in Ibsen&#39;s original meter in an attempt to capture the original, literal meaning. Rackham&#39;s accomplished full-page color illustrations here are the confident work of a mature artist approaching his 70th year.

Originale Englisch-Broschur. Kleiner Fleck auf oberem Schnitt. Der Band in speziell angefertigter, bibliophiler Halblederschatulle mit vergoldetem Rückentitel. Seltene Erstausgabe dieses bedeutsamen Widmungsexemplares. Die sehr schöne, handschriftlicher Widmung Musils an: "Doris Gaumann-Wild mit Dank und Gruß ! Zürich, 24. Februar 1939 - Robert Musil". Doris Gaumann-Wild war eine Züricher Akademikerin die einen gelegentlichen literarisch-künstlerischen Salon leitete der sich mit wichtigen literarischen Neuveröffentlichungen der Zeit beschäftigte. Es war in diesem literarischen Zirkel, wo Musil auf Einladung von Doris Gaumann-Wild ein unveröffentliches Kapitel seines unvollendete gebliebenen Werkes "Der Mann ohne Eigenschaften" vorlas (22. Februar 1939). Musil verdankte der Einladung Gaumann-Wilds sein Leben im Exil. Er erwähnte in einem seiner Briefe, dass er oft ein Gast im Hause der Gaumann-Wild&#39;s war. Widmungsexemplare von Musil sind äusserst selten. Widmungsexemplare mit solch schöner Provenienz eigentlich unauffindbar.
