P. 165).Peer Gynt is a five-act play in verse by the Norwegian dramatist Henrik Ibsen. Written in Danish - the common written language of Denmark and Norway in Ibsen's lifetime - it is one of the most widely performed Norwegian plays. Ibsen believed Per Gynt, the Norwegian fairy tale on which the play is loosely based, to be rooted in fact, and several of the characters are modeled after Ibsen's own family, notably his parents Knud Ibsen and Marichen Altenburg. He was also generally inspired by Peter Christen Asbjørnsen's collection of Norwegian fairy tales, published in 1845.Gettings, p. 181. Hudson, p. 182. Latimore and Haskell, p. 74. Riall, p. 192.

        MARY OF SCOTLAND [wrapper title]

      [Np]: RKO Radio Pictures Inc., 1936. 72pp. plus laid-in herald and two single sheet inserts. Small folio (38 x 30.5 cm). Highly pictorial wrappers, and extensively illustrated throughout. Corner crease and some smudging to lower wrapper, light use to wrapper spine and corners, trace of minor dusting and smudging early and late, but a very good, or slightly better, copy. An extraordinarily substantial and expensively produced original studio publicity campaign pressbook for the 1936 film directed by John Ford, and starring Katherine Hepburn and Frederic March. The adaptation of Maxwell Anderson's play was by Dudley Nichols. who had teamed with Ford on many other occasions, resulting in such icons of film history as THE INFORMER, THE PLOUGH AND THE STARS, THE LOST PATROL, THE LONG VOYAGE HOME and STAGECOACH. Every possible scheme for promotion is covered (including some frankly rather bizarre ones) and the wide range of promotional paper is illustrated, including an original color herald laid in and two inserts for publicity photos of Hepburn and March. One of the most lavishly produced pressbooks of its decade. Truly fine copies are few and far between, and a decidedly decrepit copy with cuts established an outlier price a few months ago at auction, realizing in excess of $900.

        San Francisco City of a Thousand and One Delights.

      San Francisco. 1936. Color lithographic pictographic / pictorial map, 20 1/4 x 45 1/2 inches, professionally mounted on linen. Light wear to edges (minimized by linen backing). Very good condition. Striking stylised panorama of San Francisco by Francis de Foy highlighting the future Golden Gate International Exposition of 1939 with Treasure Island pictured at upper right. Areas of San Francisco illustrated with figures and buildings include the Mission, Golden Gate Park, Chinatown, Nob Hill and Sutro Heights. An unusual and particularly attractive pictorial map with fine lithographic printing. The poster was apparently issued by the City of San Francisco to promote tourism: "Every human sense responds to the cosmopolitan appeals which San Francisco lays at ther visitors' feet. The panorama of her hills rising from encircling blue waters, of the two huge bridges spanning the Bay, of the 1939 Exposition taking shape on the man-made island, is your introduction to the delightful thigns to see and to do that lie within the city itself...San Francisco invites you to share its pleasures and to visit the Golden Gate International Exposition and Pageant of the Pacific in 1939."

      Colour lithograph printing with extensive manuscript additions in pencil and coloured crayon (Very Good, some wear to original folds and light staining in lower right quadrant, manuscript additions bright and clear), 87 x 110 cm (34 x 43 inches). - Florence, 1936 [but with manuscript additions, dating from between August 1944 and April 1945]. A fascinating and unique example of a military topographical map of Northwestern Italy, featuring original and extensive manuscript additions regarding the Italian Fascist High Command’s defensive plan made in response to the Allied invasion of the South of France in August-September 1944. This fascinating and unique piece comes in the form of a large-format printed military topographical map of Northeastern Italy, printed in Florence in 1936 by the Istituto Geografico Militare, but importantly augmented by original and extensive manuscript additions made by the Italian Fascist High Command to depict their defensive formations made in response to the Allied invasion of adjacent lands in the south of France, in August and September 1944. The underlying printed map embraces all of Northwestern Italy, from Milan westwards; southwestern Switzerland; and all of the southern France as far west as the Auvergne and Montpellier. All significant towns, roads, coastlines, rivers, waterways and points of elevation are marked, true to the conventions of its cartographic genre. Running roughly up the middle of the map is the Franco-Italian border, which is the focal point of the piece. The unique highlight of this particular example of the map is in that it features extensive manuscript additions, evidently made for the Italian Fascist High Command during, and in the wake, of the Allied invasion of the South of France in August-September 1944. The Italians, with good reason, fared that the Allies would, as an extension of their successful invasion of the southern France, attack Northwestern Italy. Shown here is the extensive Italian cordon militaire that was formed just behind the Italian-French frontier. Numerous named battle regiments are outlined in coloured crayon, while various lines and shaded areas indicate secondary cordons and fallback positions. The regiments are often named after their towns or regions of origin, while some have more colourful names, such as the ‘Cacciatori delle Alpi’ (Hunters of the Alps). The Italian formations closely cover all sections of the highly mountainous borderlands, from the Mediterranean up to the point where France and Italy meet neutral Switzerland. As the defensive plan, presented in manuscript, upon the present map was of the highest possible sensitively, the map was obviously marked up by and exclusively for the use the Italian High Command in the region. It was almost certainly employed by senior officers for strategic planning, although it is not clear as to precisely when the manuscript additions were added, although they were clearly made between the commencement of the Allied Invasion of the South of France in August 1944, and before the Italian forces depicted were redeployed, in April 1945, to defend Northwestern Italy from Allied attack from the east. Historical Context: Fascist Italy’s Last Stand- Following the collapse and capitulation of Fascist Italy’s central government, in September 1943, Nazi Germany reformed the Italian Social Republic as their puppet state in Northern Italy, with the former national leader, ‘Il Duce’, Benito Mussolini, as its figurehead. The Italian Social Republic was always under great pressure from internal threats from both the Yugoslav and Italians partisans, in addition to the constant spectre of an all-out Allied invasion of Northern Italy. As it turned out, by the summer of 1944, the Allies, who had conquered all of the Southern and Central Italy became bogged down by the Germans along the ‘Gothic Line’, which ran along the northern ridges of the Apennine Mountains. Northern Italy was safe from a southern attack – at least for some time. The Allies decided to strike at the Axis’s weak underbelly, the South of France, nominally controlled by the collaborationist Vichy Regime. In Operation Dragoon (August 15 to September 14, 1944), Allied forces successfully in

        Album of Photographs Chronicling a Comprehensive Voyage Around the World Onboard the SS Arandora Star with Irish Playwright George Bernard Shaw Onboard

      World Cruise, 1936. Album of photographs chronicling a comprehensive voyage around the world onboard the SS Arandora Star - the voyage taken by Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw, featuring two rare, original photographs of Shaw, and outstanding images of the places visited, taken by a passenger who was quite likely professional photographer. Contains 261 gelatin silver print photographs, the large majority with embedded numbers and manuscript captions, neatly mounted recto and verso onto 68 black cardstock leaves. Large Oblong 8vo. album measuring approximately 44 x 31 x 4 cm, black cloth boards, solid two-post binding with original wood braces. Photographs measure approximately 15,5 x 10,5 cm. Wear and age-toning to boards, otherwise in Very Good Condition. The SS Arandora Star was a luxury cruising vessel at the time, and earlier in the year had been refitted to accommodate 354 first class passengers (two hundred more in first class than previous). One of the elite passengers on this voyage was the influential, candid, witty, and highly respected Irish playwright Bernard Shaw who is seen in two (2) photographs being interviewed by Miami journalists, and one (1) photograph on the approach to Hawaii where he lunched with Charlie Chaplin. [The British Pathé, formerly Pathé News, holds an original film clip of the interview seen in these photographs.] These two exceedingly scarce photographs (above) show George Bernard Shaw being interviewed by American press agents onboard the British cruise ship SS Arandora Star while in port at Miami, Florida, on 5 February 1936. He was on his second world voyage together with his wife. Shaw is also seen on deck with a group of passengers preparing for disembarkment in Honolulu, where he would meet with Charlie Chaplin for lunch in Waikiki on the 26th of February. The album is neatly composed and offers superior photographic views from a multitude of nationalities around the world. With his keen eye for capturing the essence of indigenous life in island nations and underdeveloped communities, the photographer presents striking scenes of the daily customs which distinguish the poor and rich, visiting places tranquil and lively, ancient and modern. The high quality images throughout the album, each numbered, and all embedded captions being in the same hand, suggest that this album is the work of a professional photographer, perhaps hired by the Blue Line. Surely this voyage provided much for Shaw to ponder and write about, and perhaps aspects of it would be found in his prolific writings. He and his fellow passengers arrived in Spain at the dawn of the Spanish Revolution. Their visit to Jaffa came only a few months after "The Bloody Day in Jaffa," a riot that began on 19 April 1936, and being a violent attack by Arabs directed at the Jews, to rebel against British colonialism and the increase in Jewish immigration. [The event is often described as the catalyst to the 1936-39 Arab revolt in Palestine.] Highlights in the Americas include views Manzanillo and Mazatlan in Mexico, principle cities in California, and Honolulu, where Bernard Shaw had lunch with Charlie Chaplin. Several photographs capture the tour of Honolulu, though none of the private lunch between Shaw and Chaplin on 26 February. The Mediterranean portion of the voyage yields many indelible views from North Africa, showing the people and customs of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, coastal Libya and the Middle East. Nostalgic views show Tripoli in Libya 75 years prior to the revolutionary civil war, although at the time under Italian rule. The passengers were at Freetown in Sierra Leone on Armistice Day, November 11th, attending a memorial service illustrated with six photographs. Several photographs were taken there before crossing the Atlantic to tour Colombia and cross the Panama Canal. The following are some iconic customs illustrate in skilled snapshots: the Sultan of Morocco's cavalry guards surrounding his palace at Rabat; a Hawaiian boy pounding taro root while another climbs high for coconuts; traditional dancers in Bali; Zulu war dancers; devil dancers in Kandy (Sri Lanka); riverside dwellings and covered boats of Java; women washing laundry and infants in the rivers of Batavia; a spectacular Buddhist temple in Colombo; a religious procession taking place in Ceylon..

        The Green Ship (with Prospectus)

      Waltham Saint Lawrence: The Golden Cockerel Press, 1936. Limited Edition. Leather bound. Near fine. Gill, Eric. Crown quarto - over 9.75" - 12" tall, 182 p., Signed by both Author and Illustrator. No. 22 of 62 bound in full morocco by Sangorski and Sutcliffe, total edition 200; with Prospectus; originally published with a separate suite of the eight prints, lacking in this volume. Patrick Miller was the pen name of architect and WWI hero George Gordon Macfarlane (1885-1949) who knew some of those in the London literary circle via his sister, the author Catherine Roxburgh Carswell. Initially an engineer and architect by training and trade, Macfarlane focused more attention on his writing after an illness in 1929; he chose the pseudonyn of Patrick Miller (an ancestor) and wrote several novels, including this one. The Golden Cockerel Press published three of these, and a friendship which Macfarlane had with Eric Gill prompted the two to collaborate on The Green Ship. The bibliography notes that The Green Ship "is a book we should treasure with us, for its constant entertainment, if wrecked on a desert island". With eight wood-engravings by Eric Gill, the most inspired of the wood-engravers of his day - many would say of all of the 20th century - and who perfectly synthesized his religious convictions with his love of the human form. ***DESCRIPTION: Bound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe in full green morocco with gilt lettering and the publisher's device on the spine, gilt decorations on all three edges, top edge gilt, fore- and bottom edges uncut, narrow gilt rule on the turn-in, plain endpapers, the Eric Gill wood-engravings serving as the two pages of the title page plus the six chapter headings; 10" tall; (1)-182, Perpetua type (designed by Eric Gill), limited edition of 200 copies total, this no. 22 of 62 bound in full morocco, signed by both author and artist on the limitation page, with Prospectus, lacking the separate suite of plates. ***CONDITION: Overall near fine, with a strong, square text block, solid hinges, the leather binding is clean and supple, straight corners without rubbing, the interior is clean and bright (with a stray spot or two of foxing), and the volume is entirely free of prior owner markings; there is some sunning to the spine, a hint of rubbing to one of the spine ribs and to the bottom edges, else fine. The Prospectus is fine, with a hint of toning to the outer margins. ***CITATION: Chanticleer no. 111. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover our costs, please contact us for details.

        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.

        The General Theory of Employment Interest and Money

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited,, 1936. Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, boards ruled in blind. With an advertisement for a selection of economics books published by George Allen & Unwin laid-in. Contemporary ownership inscription to front free endpaper. 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!
