        Collected Poems of T. S. Eliot [Signed]

      New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1936. First edition. Hardcover. Fine/very good. PRESENTLY DISCOUNTED. WAS $3,750. NOW $1,975. A Fine copy of the first American edition, later printing, of this book (spine ends modestly pushed, only bear touches of wear), in a Very Good + second issue dust jacket (some toning and wear to the spine, small chips to upper flap folds, quite minor general wear and modest general toning), SIGNED BY T. S. ELIOT on the title page and there inscribed by him as follows: "Compliments / T. S. Eliot". Considered by many to be the 20th Century's most important English-language Poet, T. S. Eliot won the 1948 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his outstanding, pioneer contribution to present-day poetry". Born in the United States, Eliot immigrated to England in 1914 and 13 years later became a naturalized British subject. Notwithstanding that he lived in England most of his adult life, of his Poetry Eliot stated: "I'd say that my poetry has obviously more in common with my distinguished contemporaries in America than with anything written in my generation in England. That I'm sure of. ... It wouldn't be what it is, and I imagine it wouldn't be so good; putting it as modestly as I can, it wouldn't be what it is if I'd been born in England, and it wouldn't be what it is if I'd stayed in America. It's a combination of things. But in its sources, in its emotional springs, it comes from America. "Collected Poems" includes Eliot’s great early work such as Prufrock, The Wasteland and Burnt Norton, and Eliot's above statement makes owning this Signed American issue of his Collected Poems especially appropriate. As only 4,700 copies of this book were printed, and, as a result, copies of the first issue do not abound. Signed copies of any issue are uncommon, and signed copies of the book in original cloth are quite scarce. Copies in a condition as nice as is this one are scarcer still, and signed copies as nice as this one wearing the priced dust jacket are exceedingly difficult to find. [This copy belonged to Actor Jack Palance and the bookplate from the 2006 sale of his personal property is loosely laid in.] Altogether an excellent and rare copy, SIGNED AND GENERICALLY INSCRIBED BY T. S. ELIOT. RARE.

        Twenty-Five Poems

      London: Dent, (1936). First edition of Thomas' second published book. One of only 730 copies printed. The first edition sold out quickly and three more impressions were produced afterward, making this one of the most successful poetry books of the time. Although this collection was published only two years after his first, the poems show a more mature style, exploring themes of spirituality and politics. This is a presentation copy, inscribed by Thomas to noted collector Norman Unger on the half-title page. As with all books from the Unger collection, this is a very fine copy in grey boards, with original gray printed dust wrapper.

        American Pulp Fiction - A Collection of Vintage Detective Magazines

      Various places and Publishers. 1936-1941. Bound in pictorial staplebound wrappers. Collection presented in 3 large stylized soft portfolios with period black silk stocking tied closures. 11" x 14 Collection is comprised of :& & Official Detective Stories - 5/36, 6/36, 9/36.& & Tru-Life Detective Cases - 10/41, 11/41, 1/42.& & Secret Detective Cases - 2/42.& & Sensational Detective Tru-Crime Cases - 6/41, 7/41, 11/41, 12/41, 2/42.& & Crime Confessions - 11/39, 7/40, 1/41, 4/41, 5/41, 6/41, 7/41, 8/41, 9/41, 10/41, 11/41, 12/41, 1/42. & & Illustrated with Pulp Cover Art , monochrome photographs, period advertisements, etc. The term, Pulp Fiction , originated from the magazines of the first half of the 20th century which were printed on cheap "pulp" paper and published fantastic, escapist fiction for the general entertainment of the mass audiences. The pulp fiction era provided a breeding ground for creative talent which would influence all forms of entertainment for decades to come. The hardboiled detective and science fiction genres were created by the freedom that the pulp fiction magazines provided.& There were hundreds of pulp magazines - gaudy, sensation-packed fiction titles that sold at between five cents and a quarter. Their classic era was from the 1920s to the 1940s, and they catered to basic needs in the male psyche because their market was almost solely focused on the US male: his aspirations to be 'red-blooded' and a 'he-man', and to have a life of action and adventure in which beautiful women fell easily into his arms, and even into his bed. Such dreams came true only for the few, so the pulps catered to fantasies - providing armchair action and masturbatory ideals. & & & The pulps came into being as rivals to the slicks, which catered to the better-off sections of the US, and they quickly earned a reputation for being exploitative, unsophisticated, violent, and sexist. While this was true to a degree, they were also the proving grounds in which some great writers first made their mark - men such as Edgar Rice Burroughs, Max Brand, Zane Grey, Dashiel Hammett, Raymond Chandler, Erle Stanley Gardner, Howard Phillips Lovecraft, Clark Ashton Smith, Abraham Merritt, Robert E. Howard, Robert E. Heinlein, John D. MacDonald, Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, and many others. & A whole school of artists, some now deservedly famous and others long overdue for recognition, provided colourful, action-packed pictures of every conceivable situation, all intended to part customers from their hard-earned cash. At its best, the artwork had the same come-on effect as contemporary graphic art elsewhere, such as a poster advertising a new feature film or the next episode of a serial. These pictures may not always have been an accurate reflection of the contents, but their impact on sales was undeniable. Without it the pulps might have amounted to only a chapter or two in publishing history rather than a gloriously colourful era packed with compelling - occasionally notorious - images that today provoke feelings of nostalgia among those old enough to remember, and a nod of admiration from younger generations seeing them for the first time .& Dozens of pulp magazines, catering for every possible taste, poured from the presses in the US during the years between the two world wars. Some would prove very successful, but others would disappear after only a single issue. & & & The rise of crime in the US and the emergence of dictators in Europe were also regarded by the pulp publishers and their writers as forces that could be combated only by men of supernormal powers. The pulps were not just intended to entertain the reader - they were also meant to make him feel better about himself, his prospects, and especially his sex life. With this in mind, companies did not use the magazines to sell ordinary things like clothes or food, but instead tried to sell any number of do-it-yourself fitness courses, cures for bad breath, sex aids, 'home' movies, quack medicines, peek-a-boo nighties, and - because the magazines were full of unclothed girls - even courses in learning how to draw. Charles Atlas, who offered to help scrawny young men to keep their girls, rather than lose them to sand-kicking bullies, was one of the most prolific advertisers. And several less reputable companies pandered to every fad and fancy imaginable in the magazine's personal columns at the back. & The eventual death knell for the pulps began to sound during and after the end of the Second World War. Paper fell into short supply and became more costly - as did the metal required for the staples. These became so expensive that some publishers were forced to use just one through the spine. Tastes were also changing. A new sophistication was evident among readers, and suddenly the pulps were being regarded as 'something from the old days'. Television, which was rapidly becoming a feature in every household, cut savagely into the reading habits of the nation. Yet the pulp magazine legend is secure. The telling of it recalls a time when cheap thrills and big shots were the stuff of dreams for millions of ordinary people. & crimetime.co.uk& All issues in this collection exhibit the usual occassional rubbing and chipping to covers and spines, several issues more so than others. Some covers a bit fragile as to be expected. Some minor repairs to several issues. Generally, most issues are Very Good or better,with most quite bright and crisp. Nevertheles, age and materials require very delicate handling during reading. Featured Lit.

        Die Krisis der Europäischen Wissenschaften und die transzendentale Phaenomenologie. Eine Einleitung in die phänomenologosche Philosophie.

      Beograd, 1936. 8vo. Original printed wrappers. Backstrip lacking a bit of paper at top and bottom. Edges faded, otherwise fine. A marginal damp-stain to lower corner, far from affecting text. Pp. (77)-176.. First printing, in the extremely scarce off-print with a highly interesting presentation-inscription, of the first appearance of the first printed part (the only part to appear within his life-time) of Husserl's seminal work in which he develops his path-breaking project of linking the basic notions of science back to their conceptual roots in the pre-scientific parts of the "life-world". The work constitutes the last great work of the most important philosopher of the 20th century, the principal founder of phenomenology. The work is inscribed for "Herrn Professor Léon Robin" (1866 - 1947), the important French philosopher and scholar of Greek philosophy, who was professor of history of ancient philosophy at the Sorbonne from 1924 to 1936 (famous for his translation of Plato's dialogues into French and a number of important works on classical Greek philosophy), and reads as thus "mit/ dem Andruck vorzüglichen Hochschätzung/ überreicht/ v. Verfasser". Husserl-inscriptions are of the utmost scarcity, as are offprints of the present work. The work appeared in volume 1 of "Philosophia. Philosophorum nostri temporis vox universa. Edidit Arthur Liebert." Belgrado (Beograd), 1936, a journal that in itself is scarce. Only very few copies of the offprint are known. In "Krisis", Husserl considers the pervasive sense of crisis in European culture, while attempting to give the last in a long line of introductions by him to the method of phenomenological research which he had founded. "Krisis" develops themes which are found in earlier works by Husserl, most importantly, the question of the constitution of intersubjectivity in the Cartesian Meditations (1929). However, a great interest of the work lies in its inflexion of the phenomenological methodology. Husserl, a mathematician by education, had articulated phenomenology as a rigorous science, on the ideals of 19th century rationalism. This understanding of the role of science and of philosophy permeates his earlier research which, while also treating social and historical phenomena, always does so from the vantage point of individual consciousness. In "Krisis", Husserl cuts the umbilical cord to individual consciousness. We find him engaged in what he describes as a "teleological-historical reflection upon the origins of our critical scientific and philosophical situation". This reflection revolves around the concept of "life-world" (Lebenswelt) which Husserl introduces as the designation of the pre-theoretical and unreflected element, out of which scientific thought arises. Husserl attributes the alienation of man in Europe to the fact that the sciences have forgotten that they are rooted in the "life-world". The concept has since played a pivotal role in the theory of communicative action of Jürgen Habermas. Krisis is the last work of the most influential philosopher of the 20th century. As such, it is an essential for anybody with an interest in phenomenology, the dominant non-analytic strain of philosophical reflection in the 20th century. At the same time, it represents something as exceptional as the radicalization of an entire life's work which opens up to entire new perspectives. It translates Husserl's sense of the growing malaise and restlessness in European culture, of which he himself was a victim since the Nazi take-over of power in Germany in 1933. But it is also a reply to the then increasingly successful existentialist philosophies of Martin Heidegger and Karl Jaspers, in whose work Husserl saw a travesty of his own philosophy and a threat to the foundation of European culture. In this sense, it is the last element in what is one of the most fruitful direct dialogues in the history of philosophy, the dialogue between Husserl and his former assistant Heidegger. The last of "The Crisis of European Sciences and Transcendental Phenomenology" only appeared posthumously, in 1954

A bit of tear and wear to extremities and spine of the fragile wrappers, but overall well-preserved. First two leaves of the entire volume (not the Krisis-article) with light brown patches. [Entire volume: 442 pp.]..

        Fundamental Psychological Conceptions. A Report of Five Lectures, given under the auspices of the Institute of Medical Psychology, Melet Place, London, W.C.1. September 30 - October 4, 1935. [Next leaf: Edited by Mary Barker and Margaret Game for the Analytical Psychology Club London].

      London, (Duplicated by the Belsize Typewriting Bureau), 1936. 4to. Stitched mimeographed typescript bound in the original green half cloth with a bit of wear to extremities. Printed on rectos only, on wove paper watermarked "WEMCO". A bit of minor brwonspotting, but overall nice and clean. Early ownership inscription to front thee end-paper: "K. Armstrong/ 69 Ridgmount Gardens/ W.C.1."). (3), iii, 235, (1) ff. + f. 89a (being an illustrated leaf). Illustrations in the text, after drawings by Jung, several of them full-page.. Extremely scarce first printing, pre-publication mimeographed typescript "printed as manuscript for private circulation only" (p. i), nr. 84 (number inserted by hand at the bottom of p. i) out of no more than 150 copies at the most. A highly interesting privately published typescript of Jung's London Lectures, the so-called "Tavistock Lectures", which were not actually published until 1968 under the title "Analytical Psychology: Its theory and Practise. The Tavistock Lectures", and which were substantially edited and altered, resulting for instance in the fact that Jung's ruder remarks to the prominent British psychiatrists and psychologists were taken out. Apart from that, the correspondence around the editing of the text shows that the question of tampering with Jung's "holy writ" resulted in great discussions. Already during the earliest decades of the 20th century, the work and lectures of the great Swiss psychologist and founder of analytical psychology, Carl Gustav Jung, had awoken interest in England, and when in 1935 he gave his important lectures on the structure of the unconscious mind, the contents of the unconscious and on the methods used in the investigation of these (i.e. the London Lectures), he was indeed very famous and admired by many. However, the seminars that he moderated (19 in all between 1923 and 1941, most of them in German) were private, and up until 1948 there was no formal Jungian training institute; one could only really learn from the master himself, by participating in his seminars. The attendance, however, was very restricted. It was "by invitation only", and not very many were invited. During the seminar, a transcription of the lectures, of Jung's comments and the exchanges with the students was made and then privately printed, in numbered (by hand) copies that were distributed to the participants and a few "insiders" only, thus the strict statement on p. 1: "This report is printed as manuscript for private circulation only. The copyright belongs to Professor Jung and no part of the Report can be quoted for publication without his express permission." It is not known exactly how many copies of the "London Lectures" were thus mimeographically printed, but it is known that the corresponding typescripts of the early 20'ies seminars were printed in 100 copies and that the number went up during the years, resulting in about 150 copies for the final three seminars that date from the very late 30'ies-very early 40'ies. The present London or Tavistock Lectures are fundamental for Jungian psychology. He states himself that he wishes to give an outline of certain fundamental conceptions of psychology and then goes on to explain the he will mainly deal with the structure of the unconscious mind, the contents of the unconscious, and the method used in the investigation of contents originating in the unconscious psychological process. It is held that it is in the present lectures that Jung introduces the subject of archetypes and the collective unconscious. "The Tavistock Lectures. 5 lectures which Jung delivered to English medical doctors in 1935. This book is an excellent introduction to Jung's theory, as he assumed no prior knowledge on the part of the audience. As Joseph Campbell put it in Book World, "This, surely, is the most lucid, simple and orderly introduction to the basic principles and methods of the Jungian science of the psyche that has yet been offered to the public." (Preface to the first printed version of the text, 1968)

Elise Furer Musser (1877-1967) served as a Utah State Senator and Democratic National Committeewoman before this appointment as one of seven delegates representing the United States at the Inter-American Conference for the Maintenance of Peace held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, December 1-23, 1936. Secretary of State Cordell Hull chaired the delegation. President Roosevelt traveled to Buenos Aires aboard the U.S.S. “Indianapolis” and delivered an address at the opening session. It’s interesting to note that on January 27, 1937, the Cabinet of the Republic of Cuba passed a resolution proposing President Roosevelt as a candidate for the 1937 Nobel Peace Prize because of his efforts for peace at the conference but it was Cordell Hull who was the recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1945 for his work for peace. The December 10, 1945 presentation speech by Gunnar Jahn, Chairman of the Nobel Committee, mentioned “the Pan-American policy sponsored by Roosevelt and Hull” and that “one of the achievements of the Buenos Aires Conference was the approval of an agreement for collective security and neutrality in the event of war.”

        Turn, Magic Wheel

      Farrar & Rinehart New York: Farrar & Rinehart. (1936). First. First edition. Some foxing and wear to the boards, spine repaired, a very good copy in a supplied, good dustwrapper with a crease on the spine and with small chips and tears. This copy Inscribed but not signed by Powell to her close friend Hannah Green: "To Green, My Queen. Euch." Green made a point of collecting Powell's older books, apparently and as evidenced here, much to Powell's dismay. By consensus the best novel on New York's bohemian life by this satirical, proto-feminist novelist who has recently been rediscovered. Gore Vidal, whose critical essay helped restore her fame, called her a better satirist than Twain and said she was "our best comic novelist." Ernest Hemingway once told her she was his "favorite living novelist" -- although she was not averse to poking fun at Hemingway himself, which she did in her novel, The Wicked Pavilion. Novelist Lisa Zeidner, in a review of the Tim Page biography of Powell in The New York Times Book Review, said that "she is wittier than Dorothy Parker, dissects the rich better than F. Scott Fitzgerald, is more plaintive than Willa Cather in her evocation of the heartland and has a more supple control of satirical voice than Evelyn Waugh, the writer to whom she's most often compared." Powell was an archetypal free spirit, living much of her life in Greenwich Village, taking -- and flaunting -- lovers frequently although she was married, and mercilessly skewering the postures and foibles of an array of New York types, from bohemian artists to wealthy tycoons. An exceptionally scarce book. .

        The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money.

      London, Macmillan, 1936. 8vo. Original cloth, original dust jacket. An outstanding copy; two small closed tears in the jacket, otherwise in near mint condition. XII,430,(1) pp.. First edition of one of the most important books in the history of economics. Keynes' book is often compared to Smith's 'Wealth of Nations' and Marx's 'Kapital'. It forms the foundation of of Keynesian economics, the most influential economic system of the twentieth-century. "The world-wide slump after 1929 prompted Keynes to attempt an explanation of, and new methods for controlling, the vagaries of the trade-cycle. ... (In his General Theory of Employment), he subjected the definitions and theories of the classical school of economists to a penetrating scrutiny and found them seriously inadequate and inaccurate. By-passing what he termed the 'underworlds' of Marx, Gesell and Major Douglas, he propounded a hardly less unorthodox programme for national and international official monetary policies. ... Keynes was to dominate the international conference at Bretton Woods, out of which came the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank; and his influence during the ensuing decades, even on his theoretical opponents, has been such that a highly placed American official recently remarked that 'we are all Keynesians today'". (Printing and the Mind of Man, 423)

        Babbage's Calculating Engines. Being a Collection of Papers Relating to Them; Their History, and Construction. [Compiled by Henry Prevost Babbage.]London: E. and F.N. Spon, 1889. First edition.

      The principal source of information for the technical operation of Babbage's Difference and Analytical engines, and a rare book on the market. <br/><br/> "Toward the end of his life, Babbage began assembling his own and other's previously published writings on the Difference and Analytical Engines with the intent of publishing a history of the machines, but died before he could accomplish this task. He had the first 294 pages of this work typeset and printed on slightly varying types of paper during his lifetime. It would appear that its purpose was to collect the most significant published writings, many of which had appeared as obscure pamphlets or in little-read journals, together with a listing of what remained unpublished, including all of Babbage's notebooks and engineering drawings [listed on pp. 271-294], in the hope that his unfinished projects might be completed at some future date. The book was completed by Babbage's youngest son, Major-General Henry Prevost Babbage, to whom Babbage had bequeathed his calculating engines and everything pertaining to them. <br/><br/> "Were it not for this volume and the bibliography of Babbage's works published both here (on the last three printed pages of the book) and in Babbage's autobiography, Babbage's achievements might have been forgotten. As it turned out the information was never implemented literally, probably because construction of the mechanical Analytical Engine was just too complex a project for any organization except a government to undertake. Yet Babbage's ambitions and his ideas remained alive in the minds of people working in mechanical computation long after his technology had fallen into obsolescence. When Vannevar Bush suggested in 1936 that electromechanical technology might be the way to realize 'Babbage's large conception' of the Analytical Engine, he cited this volume among his references; and in building the electromechanical Harvard Mark I, Howard Aiken saw himself as fulfilling Babbage's ambition" (OOC).<br/><br/> Hyman 254; OOC 94 (modern reprint only); Van Sinderen CB80, showing that Babbage listed a History of the Analytical Engine as being "in the press" in 1864.. 4to: 287 x 225 mm. Pp. [8], 342, [4]. Portrait, folding table, 15 plates (several folding, including 1 large-folding, with some repairs to the margin). Modern dark green cloth in imitation of the original binding, "Babbage's Calculating Engines" lettered in gilt on upper board and on spine, some leaves browned due to acidic paper, old repairs to folds of some plates, armorial bookplate on title verso

        L'Imagination.

      Paris, 1936. 8vo. Bound uncut with the original printed green and greay wrappers, also the backstrip, in an exquisite dark green morocco binding with gilt horizontal (author, place, year) and vertical (title, in large capitals) lettering to spine and beautiful lacquered marbled green and grey paper laid in on boards, covering all but a "frame" of ab. 3 mm. Top edge gilt. Gilt super-ex libris to inside of front board, the bottom of which is signed in gilt: "J-P Miguet". Housed in a green paper slip-case with green morocco edges. Near mint copy. (4), 162, (2, -Table) pp.. First edition of Sartre's first book, of which no numbered or large paper copies were printed, and which thus only appeared thus. Published when Sartre was 30 years old, "L'Imagination" constitutes his first full philosophical work and the first presentation of his basic arguments concerning phenomenology, consciousness and intentionality, which he later developed in full, and which came to have a profound influence on 20th century philosophy.Sartre, who on the title-page is described as "professeur au lycée du Havre", was requested to write the present work by Professor H. Delacroix, who was the supervisor on his dissertation. Before establishing his central arguments about "Imagination", Sartre famously criticizes earlier theories of imagination, in particular those of Descartes, Leibnitz, and Hume. He goes on to discussing psychological theories of imagination, including Bergson - the critique of whom offended for instance Meeau-Ponty, who otherwise praised Sartre's book. Finally, Sartre provides a highly important interpretation of Husserl's theory of imagination, which foreshadows the phenomenological way of understanding imagination that was to dominate the decades to come. As thus, the work constitutes an important work in the history of phenomenology. and of 20th century philosophy.Contat & Rybalka: 36/8
