        Gouache aquarellée de Gino Starace pour la couverture de La Tigresse de Jean de La Hire.

      Arthème Fayard 1936 Gouache aquarellée de Gino Starace pour la couverture de La Tigresse de Jean de La Hire, n°333 du Livre Populaire, Arthème Fayard, 1936. Exécutée sur un carton Canson lavis A à grain satiné de format 17 x 25 cm (marges comprises ; le dessin fait 15 x 24), non signée. La cartouche du titre fait partie du dessin original ; un macaron avec le prix de vente est collé. Un papier calque monté sur le haut du canson vient protéger le dessin. Magnifique état. Giocchino Starace (1859 ? 1950), dit Gino Starace, fut le célèbre illustrateur de la collection du « Livre Populaire » des éditions Arthème Fayard, il en fit un nombre impressionnant de couvertures, choisissant très souvent une scène majeure, violente, étrange, émouvante, du roman, ou bien un portrait saisi dans un sentiment de colère, d'effarement, de terreur. Starace, dit-on, lisait souvent les textes pour choisir la scène qu'il allait composer. Natif de Naples, ce dessinateur italien a dominé presque un demi-siècle de littérature populaire française, grâce à une technique classique irréprochable au service des débordements du genre. Dans Lisibilité, emphase, narrativité (in Tapis Franc n°1, 1988), Daniel Couégnas montre que Starace perçut « la nécessité vitale qui commandait que l'illustration de couverture, cette affiche publicitaire en réduction fût saisie instantanément, appréhendée, déchiffrée de manière univoque par le regard afin de provoquer désir ou curiosité, conditions nécessaires d'une lecture ultérieure du roman ». Il précise que « la force de Starace, c'est sa capacité de synthétiser en une scène les stéréotypes qui renvoient immédiatement le lecteur moyen, médiocrement instruit, à un déjà-lu, ou un déjà-vu, tant historique que dramatique ou psychologique. » Son classicisme marié aux excès mélodramatiques, le choix de couleurs vives, la dynamique du mouvement et l'emphase constituent sa griffe qui culmine avec la folie surréaliste de la série à 65 centimes des Fantômas de Pierre Souvestre et Marcel Allain. Relevons aussi de grands textes de Gaston Leroux (Chéri-Bibi), les Pardaillan de Michel Zévaco, la saga de Rocambole de Ponson du Terrail, Naz-en-l'Air de Souvestre et Allain.

        A genoux esclave

      Les Editions du Couvre-Feu 1936 Grand in-8 broché. Couv rempliée. Complet des 15 illustrations hors texte de Wighead sur papier couché. Un des 500 ex. numérotés. Exceptionnel roman sadomasochiste des années 30, par son format, le luxe de ses illustrations et la crudité des situations. Son thème est la domination féminine conjuguée à la soumission masculine, moins répandu que la soumission féminine. Galding en est le spécialiste (Gitanes dominatrices, Sous la croupe féminine, etc.). Ce roman se lit comme l'effarante utopie d'un monde gouverné par des femmes arrogantes, toutes dominatrices, des servantes prolétaires aux impérieuses maîtresses, au service desquelles les hommes abdiquent toute liberté et sont domestiqués aux pires abjections. Le style minutieux et répétitif de Galding participe à la fascination et à l'endoctrinement que la domination exerce sur les personnages masculins. L'auteur souligne avec un plaisir sadique les moindres tremblements des esclaves, décrit la honte pourpre qui monte au front, les larmes qui coulent, les hoquets de dégoût, les fesses serrées convulsivement dans l'attente des coups, les frustrations sexuelles. La narration juxtapose des séquences et pousse les fantasmes à leur paroxysme. Une île mystérieuse d'Amérique latine, « colonie de la Domination » dirigée par des femmes riches, membres d'un Club des Maîtresses, constitue un univers clos et enchanteur, doté d'une nature « riante » (Galding insiste sur l'adjectif), qui contraste avec les tourments quotidiens des hommes. Bondage, culotte souillée sur le visage, sièges humains, corps étendus en guise de marchepieds, anulinctus qui ne disent pas leurs noms, montures humaines, toilettes intimes. Le carnet secret d'un esclave, brillant avocat français, occupe une part de la narration. La description de son calvaire témoigne d'une complaisance toute masochiste. Chez Galding le plus valeureux des hommes finit toujours par s'agenouiller, au terme d'un récit de formation qui multiplie les initiatrices. Autre grand responsable de l'aura vénéneuse de ce livre : le dessinateur Wighead. Il illustra Shakespeare, Paul et Virginie et surtout quelques textes sadomasochistes où son trait excelle. Moins connu que Carlo, il se hisse pourtant aisément à son niveau. Wighead semble avoir parfaitement compris tout l'univers fétichiste de Galding et sa mordante ironie. Ses dominatrices élégantes nagent dans le bonheur absolu, souriantes devant le spectacle quasiment banal d'hommes asservis quand elles ne feignent pas d'ignorer leurs souffrances. Les illustrations de ce roman comptent parmi les plus belles de l'époque sur ce thème. Un chef-d'oeuvre de cette littérature fétichiste, obsessionnelle et cuisante. Ouvrage rarissime dans cet état.

        Bulletin hebdomadaire de Police Criminelle [Reliure des n° 1472 à 1488, janvier à avril 1936]

      Police Criminelle 1936 Fort volume en reliure toilée réunissant les n° 1472 (6 janvier 1936) à 1488 (27 avril 1936) du Bulletin hebdomadaire de Police Criminelle. Ensemble d'environ 640pp. [les bulletins font de 35 à 50pp. chacun]. Une étiquette imprimée avec les références collée au dos. La reliure est très usagée, les bulletins en bon état. Nombreuses annotations. Rarissime documentation d'archives policières. Ces bulletins étaient évidemment à usage professionnel et interne. L'anthropométrie triomphait dans la lutte contre le crime. Toute une vision morale se révèle dans cette littérature administrative : « cette femme pourrait se livrer à la prostitution », « les susnommés circulent dans une roulotte peinte en vert » (à propos de forains inculpés pour chasse sans permis). Les signes particuliers sont l'objet de descriptions minutieuses : « jambe droite atrophiée, le genou et le pied sont tournés en dedans ce qui le fait boiter droitement ; il lui manque la première phalange de l'index de la main droite », « marche en dandinant, obèse, voix très forte », « porte sur les avant-bras 2 tatouages représentant sur l'un une baigneuse, sur l'autre 2 têtes d'enfant », « marque de variole sur la figure, atteint de rhumatismes aux jambes qui lui rendent la marche difficile et le feraient presque boiter de la jambe gauche ». Parmi les multiples condamnations relevées, on note « 1 an de prison et 200 francs d'amande, pour provocation de militaires à la désobéissance dans un but de propagande anarchiste et de provocation directe au crime de meurtre ». Dans les demandes de recherches : une femme « se prétendant ancienne infirmière et portant décorations apparentes, dont le ruban de la Légion d'honneur, [qui] se présente dans les magasins et y passe commande de marchandises, payables par traites acceptées, mais livrables dans une gare. » ; « une femme surnommée la Négresse à cause de son teint brun » Chaque n° comprend une table alphabétique des individus répertoriés ; de nombreuses pages d'individus recherchés, avec leur description anthropométrique et une ou deux photos, leur date et lieu de naissance, parfois le motif de la recherche, des renseignements pour identification ; des demandes de recherches ; des listes de bijoux et objets volés (parfois avec photos) ; des avis de cessations de recherches ; la table alphabétique des individus compris au B.P.C. Ce bulletin était adressé gratuitement à Messieurs les procureurs généraux, Procureurs de la République, Juges d'instruction, Commissaires de Police, Commandants de Brigades de gendarmerie, Directeurs de Maisons centrales, Surveillants-Chefs de Maison d'arrêt, en Algérie et en Tunisie. Cette reliure a appartenu au Commissariat général de la ville d'Orléans, qui y apposa son tampon en première page de chaque bulletin. (sw) Satisfaisant couverture rigide Edition originale

        Step by Step

      This is a seminal Churchill book that includes 82 newspaper articles focused on foreign affairs written by Churchill between March 1936 and May 1939, many of them containing his warnings and predictions about Nazi Germany. As a measure of Churchill's prescience and ultimate vindication, upon publication, Labour leader Clement Attlee, a political opponent who would replace Churchill as Prime Minister in 1945, wrote to Churchill: "It must be a melancholy satisfaction to you to see how right you were." Others were even more blunt. Sir Desmond Morton, military officer, government official, and appeasement opponent, wrote to Churchill: "Many years on, historians will read this and your speeches in Arms and the Covenant. They will wonder but I doubt they will decide what devil of pride, unbelief, selfishness or sheer madness possessed the English people that they did not rise as one man" and "call on you to lead them." Less than a year after publication, in May 1940, Churchill would become Prime Minister. Here is the British first edition, first printing, an unusually bright and clean collector-worthy copy, fine in a very good+ dust jacket. The green cloth binding is beautifully clean, square, and unfaded with sharp corners and bright spine gilt. The contents are bright and tight with no spotting and no inscriptions. Even the page edges remain bright and clean. The dust jacket is unclipped, still bearing the original front flap price, and is highly complete, with the only loss being minor chipping at the bottom of the spine. The dust jackets of this edition proved prone to soiling and to toning of the spines. Here, the dust jacket spine remains unusually bright and the jacket remains very clean, with trivial soiling mostly confined to the hinges and flap folds. There are closed tears at the bottom hinges to a maximum depth of about one inch. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.

He did this not by following the river along its banks & through its impassable canyon, but following it from the highlands above, travelling some 5,000 miles (8,000 km) by mule in the adjacent country..

        In Dubious Battle

      NY: Covici Friede. (1936). A powerful novel of migrant farm workers rising up against landowners. Written at a time when much contemporary fiction was geared toward proletarian aspirations, Steinbeck's novel could have been a mere propaganda piece; instead, it is an exploration of ideals, social protest and social justice, and the relationship of mob behavior to individual values and, as such, still resonates with relevance decades later. Tiny bookstore stamp lower rear pastedown; a fine copy in a fine dust jacket. Provenance: the Bruce Kahn collection. A beautiful copy, and nearly impossible to find in this condition; probably the nicest copy we've ever seen. In a custom clamshell box. . First Edition. Hardcover.

        Address of President Roosevelt Accepting the Democratic Nomination for President of the United States

      N.p. Philadelphia: N.p., 1936. (5)ff. A signed typewritten speech, given by Franklin Delano Roosevelt on June 27, 1936, in acceptance of his nomination as the Democratic candidate for president. Roosevelt signed the speech at the end in blue ink, and the pages have sixteen corrections in blue pencil, with one sentence that has been crossed out. In the 1936 election, Roosevelt was the incumbent and had already started work on his New Deal in the midst of the Great Depression. In the speech, Roosevelt acknowledges his “grave responsibility” to the American people, but, in light of the relief brought by his New Deal programs, he also emphasizes that “...we have won against the most dangerous of our foes — we have conquered fear.” He addresses economic inequality and denounces the “economic tyranny” of the “privileged princes of these new economic industries” who had “concentrated into their own hands an almost complete control over other people’s property, other people’s money, other people’s labor — other people’s lives.” At the end of the speech, he states that “...here in America we are waging a great war. It is not alone a war against want and destitution and economic demoralization. It is a war for the survival of democracy. We are fighting to save a great and precious form of government for ourselves and for the world.” Following this, in all capital letters, he closes the speech by saying “I accept the commission you have tendered me. I join you. I am enlisted for the duration of the war.” Roosevelt won the election in a landslide victory, with all but eight electoral votes, in a time of economic instability and high unemployment; his accomplishments and rhetoric were no match for his opponent, Republican Alf Landon. Pages measure 8 by 14 inches. The pages are stapled and taped together at the top, and the area stapled has been reinforced with a strip of paper adhered to the blank verso of the last page. Creases to the pages from being folded into quarters, perhaps to fit into the President’s pocket, else in fine condition.

Karinthy was a Hungarian author, playwright, journalist and poet who is known as the originator of the idea of "six degrees of separation", which he first elaborated in the 1929 story "Chains". This concept posits that every person on Earth is connected through a chain of friends or acquaintances to every other person on Earth by no more than six intermediaries, or degrees. Karinthy is also known for "Voyage to Faremido", which is a continuation of Swift's adventures of Gulliver, and "Capillaria", a satire of the struggle between the sexes. This volume is a selection of thirty short stories by thirty Hungarian authors; introducing some of them to the English reading public. Translated into English by Lawrence Wolfe and with an Introduction by Alexander Korda.

        ULYSSES. Signed 1/100 Copies

      London: The Bodley Head, 1936 James Joyce. ULYSSES. Signed 1/100 Copies. London: John Lane The Bodley Head, 1936. First Edition printed in England. A fine example of this, the most beautiful edition of Ulyssses ever published, designed by Eric Gill with Homeric Bow in gilt on the cover. Quarto, calf vellum board printed on mould-made paper - number 38 of only 100 copies signed by Joyce in blue ink on the limitations page. [Total edition 1000 copies with 900 in cloth]. With the Bodley Head's printed announcement of publication laid in; in the original patterned paper slipcase with a bit of foxing & soiling to the printed numbered paper label, showing some rubbing at the slipcase edges - near fine considering it's endemic fragility. A very nice lovely example. Joyce's biographer Richard Ellman observed, "In his earlier books Joyce forced modern literature to accept new styles, new subject matter, new kinds of plot and characterization. In his last book he forced it to accept a new area of being and a new language. What is ultimately most impressive is the sureness with which, in the midst of such technical accomplishments, he achieved his special mixture of attachment and detachment, of gaiety and lugubriousness. He was no saturnine artificer contriving devices, but one of life's celebrants, in bad circumstances cracking good jokes, foisting upon ennuis and miseries his comic vision." Slocum & Cahoon A23 - The Modern Movement 42 . Signed by Author. First Edition.
