        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]

        Photo Album of Medical Officer of the Asiatic Fleet Flagship "Augusta"

      China, Southeast Asia, and Japan. 1936. Oblong quarto. Measuring 15" x 11". Full decorative embossed leather album bound with steel rivets. 102 pages interleaved with tissue containing 846 mostly black and white gelatin silver photographs; measuring between 1.25" x 1.5" to 7.75" x 9.75", with most measuring between 2.5" x 3.75" to 3.75" x 5". Approximately three-quarters of the photos are captioned and a few items of ephemera tipped in. Approximately 25-30 are commercial images or real photo postcards, but the vast majority are well-composed snapshots. Album is very good or better with some scuffing and loss to the lower corner of rear cover and lacking the clasp; contents are generally fine.This massive album was compiled by Lt. Commander Toson O. Summers, the medical officer of the USS Augusta which was the flagship of the Asiatic fleet. The path of the Augusta in 1936 is well-documented. Summers went to great lengths to map his tour of duty and this album reflects that concern. It is artfully designed (the album itself handmade by an artist in Chefoo (now Yantai), very well-captioned, and filled with an extraordinary amount of interesting images. Summers visited many cities in China including Shanghai, Amoy, Nanking, Soochow, Tsingtao, Peiping, and Chingwantao. Additionally Summers compiled many images from Japan, Bali, the Philippines, Singapore, and Indonesia.Summers was an inveterate photographer with a keen eye for street imagery as well as native peoples and their cultures. Though an amateur, he artfully captured dozens of street scenes and markets; businesses such as a hemp factory, farming, restaurants, smugglers, and brothels; and many great birds-eye views of local towns. In addition to all the views of daily life there are more than one series of funerals; others show native dances, a lama service, a Eucharist Congress, acrobats, healers, and more. His landscape pictures are equally well-composed and some images include Mount Fuji, the Cloud Tower, Borabudur, The Great Wall, and various beaches.Additionally there are a couple of dozen images showing life on the ship, including a couple where the men are dressed in drag and one or two of a softball game. One particularly interesting shot shows a man standing between the wings of a seaplane flying over the water; another shows a man with a chicken; others show a line of camels at The Great Wall, a roadside restaurant, and a funeral pyre in Bali. Additionally there are 25 beautifully affected hand-colored images. A few of these are very nice panoramas measuring 3.75" x 11". In all a massive, unique, and comprehensive immersion into the people, lifestyle, culture and scenery of Asia in the years leading up to World War II, much more detailed than all similar albums of the period that we've handled. .

Als Gründungsmitglied der Münchner Secession entwickelte er gemeinsam mit Dill und Hölzel eine effiziente Methode des Kunstunterrichtes, die den Schülern größtmöglichen Freiraum zur eigenen Entfaltung gewähren sollte.

        Gone With the Wind.

      New York: Macmillan, 1936. First edition of the author's classic novel. Octavo, original gray cloth. First printing, with "Published May 1936" on the copyright page and no mention of other printings. First issue dust jacket, with Gone with the Wind listed in the second column of the booklist on the back panel, with $3.00 cost on the front flap. Near fine in the original near fine price-clipped dust jacket with some light reinforcement to the verso. A very nice example. In 1923, Margaret Mitchell became a feature writer for the Atlanta Journal, and in 1925, married John Marsh, a public relations officer for Georgia Power. She found most of her assignments unfulfilling, and she soon left to try writing fiction more to her own taste. Her own harshest critic, she would not try to get her work published. She began to write Gone with the Wind in 1926, while recovering from an automobile accident. Over the next eight years she painstakingly researched for historical accuracy. She accumulated thousands of pages of manuscript. Here is how she later described her life's labor: "When I look back on these last years of struggling to find time to write between deaths in the family, illness in the family and among friends which lasted months and even years, childbirths (not my own), divorces and neuroses among friends, my own ill health and four fine auto accidents ... it all seems like a nightmare. I wouldn't tackle it again for anything. Just as soon as I sat down to write, somebody I loved would decide to have their gall-bladder removed. ... " In 1934, an editor from Macmillan's Publishers came to Atlanta seeking new authors. He was referred to John and Margaret Marsh as people who knew Atlanta's literary scene. She steered him to several prospects, but didn't mention her own work. A friend told him that she was writing a novel, but she denied it. On the night before he was to leave Atlanta, she appeared at his hotel-room door with her still imperfect, mountainous manuscript and left it with him for better or for worse. "This is beyond doubt one of the most remarkable first novels produced by an American writer. It is also one of the best" (New York Times). Gone With the Wind is said to be the fastest selling novel in the history of American publishing (50,000 copies in a single day), and went on to win the Pulitzer Prize.

        The Star of Midnight.

      New York. Dodd, Mead & Company. 1936. - First Edition. With matching dates of 1936 on the title and copyright pages. Basis for the movie staring William Powell as Clay Dalzell; Ginger Rogers as Donna Mantin. Also performed as a play. Star of Midnight (1935 movie). "The new film at the Music Hall is in the tradition of urbane screen homicide originated by "The Thin Man," that distinguished exponent of the murder-with-a-smile school of cinema criminology. A sleek, witty and engaging entertainment, it contemplates its corpses with the charming air of just passing the time pleasantly until the bar opens. Probably William Powell, as the debonair lawyer-sleuth of the late Arthur Somers Roche's story, is responsible for making "Star of Midnight" seem like a sequel to "The Thin Man," when its producers had no such reckless intention. His Clay Dalzell is drawn to the Nick Charles measurements and he conducts his pursuit of cocktails and assassins with that blend of bored nonchalance and native shrewdness which we found so captivating last year.-- Review by Andre Sennwald, April 12, 1935. The book is in superb condition in the original dustjacket with its original price of $2.00 intact at the top of the inside front flap. Bound in gleaming finely woven black cloth boards stamped brightly in orange ink on the front boards and the spine. With light orange topstaining. The hinges are tight; book is clean and apparently unread. The striking dustjacket features an elegant couple in evening dress stepping out for a night on the town.The dustjacket has light edge-rubbing and wear to the folds. There is some apparent oxidation to the lamination on the bottom half of the dustjacket spine, creating a light gray mottling to the paper. With a 1/2" piece of the laminate flecked off, revealing the black paper beneath at the middle of the spine. Otherwise, a scarce, well-preserved book and dustjacket from 1936. The basis for the William Powell and Ginger Rogers movie. Very scarce in dustjacket. First Edition. With matching dates of 1936 on the title and copyright pages.

        Photo Album of Medical Officer of the Asiatic Fleet Flagship "Augusta"

      China, Southeast Asia, and Japan. 1936. Oblong quarto. Measuring 15" x 11". Full decorative embossed leather album bound with steel rivets. 102 pages interleaved with tissue containing 846 mostly black and white gelatin silver photographs; measuring between 1.25" x 1.5" to 7.75" x 9.75", with most measuring between 2.5" x 3.75" to 3.75" x 5". Approximately three-quarters of the photos are captioned and a few items of ephemera tipped in. Approximately 25-30 are commercial images or real photo postcards, but the vast majority are well-composed snapshots. Album is very good or better with some scuffing and loss to the lower corner of rear cover and lacking the clasp; contents are generally fine.This massive album was compiled by Lt. Commander Toson O. Summers, the medical officer of the USS Augusta which was the flagship of the Asiatic fleet. The path of the Augusta in 1936 is well-documented. Summers went to great lengths to map his tour of duty and this album reflects that concern. It is artfully designed (the album itself handmade by an artist in Chefoo (now Yantai), very well-captioned, and filled with an extraordinary amount of interesting images. Summers visited many cities in China including Shanghai, Amoy, Nanking, Soochow, Tsingtao, Peiping, and Chingwantao. Additionally Summers compiled many images from Japan, Bali, the Philippines, Singapore, and Indonesia.Summers was an inveterate photographer with a keen eye for street imagery as well as native peoples and their cultures. Though an amateur, he artfully captured dozens of street scenes and markets; businesses such as a hemp factory, farming, restaurants, smugglers, and brothels; and many great birds-eye views of local towns. In addition to all the views of daily life there are more than one series of funerals; others show native dances, a lama service, a Eucharist Congress, acrobats, healers, and more. His landscape pictures are equally well-composed and some images include Mount Fuji, the Cloud Tower, Borabudur, The Great Wall, and various beaches.Additionally there are a couple of dozen images showing life on the ship, including a couple where the men are dressed in drag and one or two of a softball game. One particularly interesting shot shows a man standing between the wings of a seaplane flying over the water; another shows a man with a chicken; others show a line of camels at The Great Wall, a roadside restaurant, and a funeral pyre in Bali. Additionally there are 25 beautifully affected hand-colored images. A few of these are very nice panoramas measuring 3.75" x 11". In all a massive, unique, and comprehensive immersion into the people, lifestyle, culture and scenery of Asia in the years leading up to World War II, much more detailed than all similar albums of the period that we've handled. .
