        Jamaica Inn.

      Victor Gollancz Ltd, London 1936 - 8vo. [190 x 125 x 31 mm]. 351pp. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in dark blue in original yellow dust-wrappers printed in black and red (wrapper town with loss at head of spine, which is darkened, sides soiled). Occasional scattered foxing or spotting, including to the half-title and title, and the dust-wrapper has seen better days, but it is present and correct (with price 7/6) and unrestored. Previous owner's neat ink initials inside front cover. Jamaica Inn was Daphne Du Maurier's fourth novel and her most successful work to date, selling more copies in three months than her previous works had sold in total. The atmospheric tale of eighteenth century smugglers was inspired by a visit to to the real Jamaica Inn on Bodmin Moor several years earlier. During her stay Daphne and a friend were lost on the moor in bad weather and forced to shelter in an abandoned cottage, before eventually finding their way back to the inn. Much of the novel was written away from Cornwall, at a time when she was struggling to adjust to her new role as an army wife. In her imagination Cornwall becomes a Gothic landscape and the familiar Gothic plot of a heroine under threat in a sinister edifice allowed her to explore themes of freedom and nonconformity. Jamaica Inn was influenced by Du Maurier's early reading of boys' adventure stories such as Treasure Island and her admiration for the Brontes' fiction, particularly Wuthering Heights. Combining elements of both, she created a work which has itself become a part of Cornish legend. [Attributes: First Edition]

        La solennità del Corpus Domini da Casa Tomazzoni di Rovereto.

      1936 - Dopo gli studi a Venezia all’accademia di Belle Arti, Ottolini svolse la sua attività di pittore a Trento ed in varie località del Trentino. Tra le sue opere compaiono i lavori di decorazione svolti nel 1913 e nel 1937 nella chiesa di Santo Stefano di Ischia di Pergine Valsugana, documentata dal 1471. Di grande valore artistico sono anche gli affreschi eseguiti sulle volte della chiesa di Capriana nel 1928. Quest’opera venne dapprima eseguita su otto tele di dimensioni ridotte dipinte utilizzando la tecnica ad acquerello e solo in un secondo momento vennero riportate sulle volte della chiesa. Da notare il dettaglio della sede della famosa cappelleria Bacca di Rovereto. Firmato in basso a destra. Si vende in cornice. Formato: Olio su tela di cm 50x70. Più che buono.

Spine sunned, gently rolled, and head bumped, a few marks to boards, endpapers lightly browned and spotted, overall a very good copy. First edition, first impression. "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, he subjected the definitions and theories of the classical school of economics to a penetrating scrutiny and found them seriously inadequate and inaccurate" (PMM). His conclusion, namely that "the regulation of the trade-cycle – that is to say the control of booms and slumps, the level of employment, the wage-scale and the flow of investment – must be the responsibility of governments", permanently altered the terms of economic debate and considerations of the role of government in managing the economy (or not).

        Portraits - Brustbilder, 2 Photographien mit je einer eigenhändigen Widmung und eigenhändigen Unterschrift.

      2 Orignal Photographoien, O.O., 6. Oktober (19)36, 15,4 x 21,2 cm auf 28,8 x 11 cm. Rare set, dedicated by "W(illiam). J(ames). Mayo/ To the Minneapolis Surigcal Society by/ Oct. 6/36" and "C(harles). H(orace). Mayo/ To the Minneapolis Surgical Society Library/ 1936". William James Mayo (1861-1939, Rochester received his M.D. degree in 1883 from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and then engaged at Rochester in the private practice of medicine and surgery with his father and later with his younger brother Charles Horace Mayo. Though William J. Mayo became the administrator in the practice, no important decisions were made without the full agreement of both brothers. He and his brother performed all the surgery at St. Mary's Hospital until about 1905. From this surgical partnership of the two brothers evolved the cooperative group clinic, later known as the Mayo Clinic. William James Mayo, who became a specialist in surgery of the abdomen, pelvis, and kidney, remained active in surgery at the clinic until 1928 and in administration until 1933. Charles Horace Mayo (b. July 19, 1865, Rochester-d. May 26, 1939, Chicago, Ill.) was the younger son of William Worrall Mayo and was characterized as a "surgical wonder." He received an M.D. degree from the Chicago Medical College (later part of Northwestern University Medical School) in 1888 and in the same year began private practice of surgery with his father and brother. Charles Mayo had the ability to work in all surgical fields he originated modern procedures in goitre surgery and in neurosurgery he performed highly successful operations for cataract of the eye and originated procedures for several orthopedic operations. In 1930 he retired from surgery at the clinic and three years later from administration. He was professor of surgery at the University of Minnesota Medical School from 1919 to 1936 and at the University of Minnesota Graduate School from 1915 to 1936. William J. Mayo said about his brother, "Charlie has . . . an intuitive mind, from his knowledge of physiology and anatomy and his understanding of the personality of the patient." At one time he was a member of the advisory board of Encyclopædia Britannica. With his brother, he alternated as chief consultant for all surgical services in the U.S. Army during World War I, serving with the rank of colonel. After the war, each brother was commissioned a brigadier general in the medical-corps reserve. Charles William Mayo (b. July 28, 1898, Rochester-d. July 28, 1968, Rochester) was the son of Charles Horace. He was a skilled surgeon and member of the board of governors of the Mayo Clinic, chairman of the Mayo Association, and a member (chairman 1961-67) of the board of regents of the University of Minnesota. He is noted for a speech he gave in 1953 as a member of the United States delegation at the United Nations. The clinic began to grow in size in the early 1900s, when many young physicians began to apply for positions as interns and assistants. At the same time, outstanding scientists in basic medical subjects were added to the clinic's training and research programs. In 1919 the Mayo brothers transferred property and capital to the Mayo Properties Association, later called the Mayo Foundation, a charitable and educational corporation having a perpetual charter. About 1900 the Mayo Clinic was changed from a partnership to a voluntary association of physicians and specialists in allied fields. In the late 20th century the clinic's staff included about 500 physicians, treating more than 200,000 patients annually.

        Director's Manual:

      California: Walt Disney Studios,, 1936. Director's Relationship to the Picture and to the Animator. Large quarto. Recent red leatherette binding, titles to spine and front cover gilt, single rule gilt frame to front cover, red marbled endpapers. Housed in a red cloth slipcase. Typeset printed lectures, 30 leaves of black and white character sketches on paper of varying colours and sizes and 3 charts. Statement of authenticity laid-in. Short closed tear to first leaf of Mickey Mouse sketches, slight creasing to leaf edges, light browning to text; excellent condition. A collection of 13 mimeographed manuscripts giving a fascinating insight into Disney's internal training program for the animators. The collection comprises: two lectures by Don Graham discussing general animation theory and practice; a bulletin discussing "How to Catch, Build and Maintain the Interest of the Spectator in the Picture"; character sketches for general character types such as "Mae West" and "Cute"; written character analyses by Ted Sears for Mickey Mouse ("Mickey is not a clown ... he is neither silly nor dumb"), Pluto, Donald Duck, and Goofy, with accompanying sketches; lectures on the technicalities of drawing drapery and "Assistant Animator Qualifications and Procedure". The Mickey Mouse sketches have Harry Reeves's name to the head of the recto, who worked with Disney from 1931 to 1955. The studio's internal training and internship program was developed in the early 1930s for new animators to foster the studio's distinctive style, but as the script for Snow White was developed in 1935, Disney insisted that the entire art department attend weekly mandatory classes. These classes were taught by Don Graham, previously a professor at the Chouinard Institute. Art Babbit, the animator who developed the character of Goofy, said of Graham that he had "learned a hell of a lot from him!

"Many doctors are not interest in medical history, that is, in medical history as it has been served to them up to the present time. This is a sad and unnatural state of affairs... Medical Classics aims to awaken the interest of all medical workers in the historical side of their profession. The work will be useful, not merely ornamental" (from the "Preface Concerning Aims and Policy").

The five volumes reprint classic texts in every imaginable medical discipline, providing English translations where necessary. Biographical notes and full bibliographies are given for each author. Garrison-Morton-Norman 6662.1. A fine, complete set.

        Jamaica Inn (Signed By The Author In The Year Of Publication)

      The First UK Printing published by Gollancz in 1936. The BOOK is in Very Good+ or better condition. The board margins and spine are lightly toned. A tiny split to the cloth at the head of the spine with a pinhole sized snag to the cloth on the front board. The book has a very slight lean. Some toning to the text block with some spotting to the prelims and rear pages. The WRAPPER is complete and is the correct first issue. It is in Very Good++ condition. Some toning to the spine, folds and flap edges with a little splitting on the flap folds. Mild edge wear with a little slither of loss to the rear upper edge and the upper folds. There has been some expert professional restoration to the head of the spine and the wrapper now presents very well in the removable Brodart archival cover. The book has been Inscribed and Signed by the author to the front blank end paper: 'With many thanks for a delightful evening , Daphne Du Maurier, March 9th 1936'. The dedicatee is not named, but there is the ownership signature of Colonel Badcock with an identification number in pencil to the verso of the rear blank end paper. The early date of the signature must have meant that the book was signed shortly after publication. Du Maurier's famous work of smuggling and intrigue was influenced by the author's childhood reading of the adventure tales of Robert Louis Stevenson and by a trip to the eponymous hostelry when she went riding on Bodmin Moor. Housed in a custom solander box with gilt titling. A very scarce title to find signed with such attributes.

        KEEP THE ASPIDISTRA FLYING

      Gollancz 1936 - First edition. Publisher's blue cloth with dark blue lettering. Signed by the author for fellow novelist Anthony Powell, "Geo. Orwell" on the front end paper, with Powell's bookplate to the front pastedown. A very good copy, light soiling with a little wear to the spine ends and rear joint and the faint remains of a Boots label to the front cover. The book which "would eventually produce one of his [Orwell's] most substantial adult friendships" (Taylor - Orwell The Life). Powell recalls buying this book and the friendship with Orwell which followed in the first volume of his autobiography, Infants of the Spring (1976). "When Down and Out in Paris and London appeared in 1933, someone recommended it . I read the book, and was impressed by its savagery and gloom. At the same time, I cannot claim to have immediately marked down Orwell as a writer of whom one would obviously hear more. However, a year or two later, when I saw a copy of Keep the Aspidistra Flying in a secondhand bookshop, I bought it. Again, I liked the novel for its violent feelings and presentation of a young man at the end of his tether, rather than for its form or style, which seemed strangely old fashioned in treatment . I spoke of the book dining with Cyril Connolly. Connolly then told me Orwell was one of his oldest friends . He urged me to write a fan letter. This I did, thereby making my first Orwell contact, in 1936" Powell included a copy of his recently self published Caledonia, and received a friendly, if hesitant, reply from Orwell. It was not until some five years later that they met in person, whereafter they would meet and correspond regularly for the remainder of Orwell's life. An exceptional association copy. George Orwell presentation copies are uncommon, without compare amongst major twentieth century writers. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
