        Sagittarius Rising.

      London: Peter Davies,, 1936. Octavo. Original grey marl cloth, titles to spine in dark blue. With the dust jacket. Faint foxing to spine, top edge faintly dust toned, light offsetting to endpapers; an excellent copy in the price-clipped jacket with browned spine, nicks to extremities. First edition, first impression, of one of the classics of Great War literature, widely considered as the finest flying memoir of the war, and here offered in the exceptionally uncommon dust jacket. "At seventeen, standing 6 feet 4 inches tall and equipped with a precocious intelligence, Lewis lied about his age to join the Royal Flying Corps. He celebrated his eighteenth birthday in France, flying patrols over the western front at a time when the average life expectancy of a pilot was three weeks. On 1 July 1916 he flew the first patrol of the Somme offensive and witnessed the mile-high column of earth thrown up by the detonation of mines under the German positions. Later he duelled with the 'circus' of Manfred von Richthofen and was the last man to see the aircraft of Albert Ball VC, the allied ace who vanished in a bank of cloud. Lewis also hunted Gotha airships over London by moonlight, and in 1917 he was awarded the Military Cross for continuous bravery" (ODNB). On publication, the book was reviewed in the New Statesman by George Bernard Shaw, who Lewis had encountered while deputy director of programmes at the BBC, and who had permitted him make the first film adaptation of one of his plays. Shaw's high praise guaranteed the book's immediate success: "This is a book everyone should read. It is the autobiography of an ace, and no common ace either … This prince of pilots … had a charmed life in every sense of the word".

        La Realidad y el Deseo. Primeras poesías. Egloga, elegía, oda. Un río, un amor. Los placeres prohibidos. Donde habite el olvido. Invocaciones a las gracias del mundo.

      Ediciones del Arbol, Cruz y Raya, Imprerso por Manuel Altolaguirre, Madrid 1936 - 1ª ed. 11x16.2. 212pp. 5h. Rústica. Alguna tenue marca en las cubiertas (ver fotos), pero muy buen ejemplar, interiores muy limpios, sin óxido, ni firmas ni subrayados. Este es el cuarto libro del poeta sevillano y recoge su obra poética desde 1924, y es un libro muy raro, escasamente encontrable en comercio; el CCPB recoge 4 ejemplares, 2 de los cuales están en la BNE, hay otros 5 (!) en la Residencia de Estudiantes - vaya lujo. WorldCat, por alguna razón, no recoge ninguno de estos, pero me pregunta si me interesa buscar 'crub realised desex cornada?'; suena un poco a los pequeños anuncios que se encontraban de antes en las cabinas de teléfonos públicos de algunos barrios de Londres, así que no me atrevo por si acaso. Envíos para España: el pago contra reembolso conlleva un recargo de 4 Euros.

        [LAST CONSTRUCTIVIST DESIGNS] Sbornik kompozitsionnykh rabot studentov. #2 [i.e. Collection of Architectural Designs by Students. #2]

      Leningrad: Vserossiiskaia akademiia hudozhestv, 1936. 154 pp.: ill. In original publisher's wrappers. Rubbed, small tears of the spine, water stains on the margin throughout the copy. Otherwise good. Very rare. One of 1000 copies. Book design by Mikhail Minkus (1905-1963). This collection includes four student projects by Minkus of the 1928-1930 as well as works by well-known Soviet architects A. Arkin, R. Israelyan, Z. Brod, I. Rozhin, A. Velikanov, P. Abrosimov, A. Khriakov, Ia. Rubanchik, L. Poliakov. Most of the rest designed Soviet city housing in the 1930s. This is the second collection of the best constructivist works by students of the Faculty of Architecture at the Academy of Arts of the 1928-1930. This time became the highest point of constructivist period at the Academy when students created the purest constructivist projects. Overall 70 works include commune houses, factories and other designs of urban and industrial use. Students' works were never published except for the first collection of 1929 (see our Winter Catalogue 2017) and this collection of 1936. In contrast to the first collection in this edition there are works on auxiliary disciplines too (drawing - from life and architectural drawing). These designs give a vivid image of an architecture process that was taking place during 1920s in Russia. The highest point of constructivist period at the Academy was during 1928-1930 when the purest constructivist projects were created by the brightest young architects like Rubanchik, Rozhin, Minkus. But published in 1936 when Stalinist architecture was dominant these works looked out of date (yet futuristic), and compilers had to explain themselves in the introduction: "Refusal to display these materials, which draw the recent past of the architectural school, would not allow us to look once again at the path traveled by the Soviet architecture so that at the present stage of the new searches, the direction presented here will be subjected to a new criticism" (about constructivism). Amazing collection of constructivist architecture designs which were never brought to life. No copies in USA according to the Worldcat.

        ULYSSES

      London Bodley Head 1936 - First authorised English edition. Number 104 of 900 copies on japon. Original publisher's green buckram with Homeric bow designed by Eric Gill in gilt to the upper cover and gilt titles to the spine, in buff dustwrapper printed in black and red. Top edge gilt, others uncut. A fine copy in a fine dustwrapper which is bright and crisp. An exceptional copy. Although Ulysses was first published in Paris in 1922, it was not until the 1933 decision in the US District Court that Ulysses was not obscene, overturning the earlier successful prosecution of The Little Review for serialising the book, that legitimate publication in Britain and America was possible. For the first UK publication of this now notorious work, it was decided to limit publication to 1000 copies, paralleling the 1922 publication, with the first 100 signed by Joyce. The edition contains appendices relating to the legal case surrounding publication and the first bibliography of Joyce. Slocum & Cahoon A23 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Very good. Authorized Russian translation from the German manuscript of Bertold Brecht's play, known in English as "Round Heads and Pointed Heads," written shortly before Hitler was elected Reichskanzler. It has been described as "Brecht's first anti-Fascist play, one of the few which Brecht directed during his years of exile [?] Round Heads and Pointed Heads would become a lightning rod in the literary politics of exile in Moscow" (Stephen Parker, Brecht: A Literary Life, 300-301). While initially conceived as an adaptation of Shakespeare's "Measure by Measure," the rapid growth of National-Socialism prompted Brecht to depart from his original inspiration. The play became a clear parody of the Nazi's demagogery and racial politics, set in the fictive country "Peru" whose inhabitants are divided into "round heads" ("Tschuchen") and the "pointy heads" ("Tschichen"), leading to radicalization and violence. The play's genealogy and reception are complex: scheduling conflicts prevented it from being premiered in Berlin in January 1932. After going into exile in 1933, Brecht rewrote the piece for a performance in Copenhagen, which was cancelled due to censorship concerns; a planned performance directed by Piscator in Moscow in 1935-1936 did not materialize, nor was Brecht able to secure contracts in France. In November 1936, the play premiered in a Danish-language performance; its first German production would come only in 1948. This Russian translation is the first full appearance of the play in print, in any version (an English translation followed in 1937, and the first German edition of the finalized text appeared in 1938).In a curious division of labor, blank verse and prose were translated by Valentin Stenich; couplets and songs by Semen Kirsanov. Both were noted avant-garde poets in their own right. Stenich later fell victim to Stalin's Purges: he was arrested for his well-known anti-Soviet views and shot in 1938. With an effusive inscription by the Soviet artist Evgenii Kogan (1906-1983), a student of Vkhutemas and later Vladimir Favorsky. As a result, the book may subsequently have been removed from circulation. One of 3000 copies. KVK, OCLC show no copies outside of Germany (where it is held by Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin, the Brecht-Archiv at Akademie der Künste, and Deutsche Nationalbibliothek).

        FOUR DAYS WAR ..

      London: Robert Hale & Company, [1936].. Octavo, pp. [1-6] 7-288 [note: first leaf is a blank], original black cloth, spine panel stamped in gold, top edge stained yellow. First edition. Sequel to PRELUDE IN PRAGUE: A STORY OF THE WAR OF 1938 (1935). "PRELUDE IN PRAGUE ends with the delivery of a German ultimatum to Britain, and its sequel ... takes up the story with its rejection. The book goes on to describe the devastation of Britain by bombers which carry not only explosives but chemical and biological weapons. The war becomes a world war -- and eventually takes on the semblance of a Holy War, with the Christian nations (led by America) arrayed against the forces of a new paganism, symbolized by Germany's new military dictator, Prince von Teufel. Fowler Wright had intended (in 1933) to call his future war story THE SPLENDID CURSE, and there are fragments of dialogue in FOUR DAYS WAR which concentrate on the degeneracy of contemporary society and the possibility of its corruption being cleansed by the war. The horror of the vision of destruction, though, overwhelms this cynical thread of argument, and it has quite disappeared by the time the story extends into the third volume of the trilogy, MEGIDDO'S RIDGE (1937)." - Stableford, Scientific Romance in Britain 1890-1950, pp. 195-96.

        Hungaria

      London: Ivor, Nicholson and Watson, 1936. Very good in slt. marked dj. 8to, 302 pp, ads (iv). Bright green cloth cover. Gilt title on spine. Original pictorial dj with title in black below; title in black on spine. Chip on dj at top of spine intrudes on the tops of two letters in the title, but it is still legible. Chip on front of dj at top edge. A small Budapest bookseller's label on the inside front cover. This volume is signed by two of the short story authors, Frigyes Karinthy, and Jozsef Tersanszky, and a third author with an unidentifiable signature, and dated 29/9/37. 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.
