        Crusader Castles. Complete in two volumes comprising 'The Thesis' and 'The Letters'. With forewords by A.W.Lawrence and Mrs [Sarah] Lawrence.

      The Golden Cockerel Press, London, 1936. The first publication of Lawrence's Oxford thesis (originally entitled 'The Influence of the Crusades on European Military Architecture to the end of the Twelfth Century'). Limited to 1,000 numbered copies (this being #594) printed in Perpetua type on British mould-made paper and bound by Sangorski and Sutcliff into half morocco, gilt lettered at spines with five raised bands to each and cream cloth sides. 4to. Top edges gilt, other untrimmed. With over 150 reproductions of drawings, photographs and diagrams, but lacking the two folding maps which should be housed in a separate envelope at the rear. Cloth sides a little marked with just a touch of light tanning to extreme margins of the first four or five leaves of the first volume. Not a fine set, but really very good. O'Brien A118 & A189. "A first typewritten text of the thesis served as a draft for a corrected version, also typewritten, which was bound with numbered illustrations and submitted to the examiners. The author then began to revise the rough copy again in pencil, apparently with a view to publication, altering the wording and writing comments in the margins. The title 'Crusader Castles' appears only in this version. After the examination (in which he was placed in the First Class), one of the judges of the thesis urged the University Press to publish it in book form, saying however that not one of the illustrations could be spared; the cost was considered prohibitive." - from A.W.Lawrence's foreword.. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good.

        The General Theory of Employment Interest and Money.

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited,, 1936. Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, two line border to head and foot of covers in blind, top edge brown. Spine rolled, head and tail of spine creased, some barely visible marks to rear board, top edge foxed, an excellent 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).

First edition. A presentation copy from one ghost story writer to another with signed inscription by Wells on the half title page to Irish writer Elizabeth Bowen (1899-1973) who lived in Regent's Park from 1935 until after the end of World War II: "To Elizabeth Bowen / with warmest regards / H. G." "This story is a satire written in the form of an allegory. In its symbolism it has close affinities with THE ISLAND OF DOCTOR MOREAU (1896) and MR. BLETTSWORTHY ON RAMPOLE ISLAND (1928)." - Hammond, p. 44. "In some ways a more mature telling and redirection of 'The Red Room,' or hauntings as due to mental fragments that have assumed a power beyond their immediate origin. It is also a symbolic statement of the psychosis emergent within Western culture just before World War II. 'A sickness in the very ground of our lives, breaking out here and there and filling men's minds with a paralyzing irrational fear.' The ghost story as a statement of the spiritual breakdown of society ... One of Wells's better late works." - Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1683. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-1224. Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 3-360. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 225. Stableford, Scientific Romance in Britain 1890-1950, p. 174. Bleiler (1978), p. 205. Reginald 15020. Hammond B18.

        Gone With the Wind

      New York: Macmillan, 1936. First edition of the author's classic novel. Octavo, original gray cloth. Signed by Margaret Mitchell on the front free end paper. 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 dust jacket with some light professional restoration to the extremities. 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 General Theory of Employment Interest and Money.

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited, 1936 - Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, two line border to head and foot of covers in blind, top edge brown. Spine rolled, head and tail of spine creased, some barely visible marks to rear board, top edge foxed, an excellent 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).

        Printed Document Signed.

      - The beloved and influential jazz trumpeter and gravel-voiced singer appeared in many films, most notably "Pennies from Heaven" (1936), "The Glenn Miller Story" (1954) and "Hello Dolly" (1969). One of the most bizarre Satchmo items we've handled -- and we've handled a lot: a printed DS, 1p, 8½" X 11", n.p., n.d. [ca. 1966]. Very good. Small yellow tape stain at each corner. Mimeographed letter headlined "SATCHMO SEZ." in which Armstrong raves at length about the medicinal benefits of his two favorite laxatives, "Swiss Kriss" and "Bis Ma Rex." Armstrong was known to have been excessively fond of laxatives from an early age, and in later years became a devotee and practically a walking billboard for these two brands, going so far as to hand out sample packets to friends and fans. He mentions "Swiss Kriss" several times his memoir, noting that he came up with an open letter to fans about these products. Offered here is a signed copy of this very same letter. Along the top edge, he boldly writes in his characteristic green ink, "To Donald M. Burnell / from Louis Armstrong." Then, vertically down the blank left margin, he signs again, large and bold. The printed text reads in part: "How to take Swiss Kriss -- the Satchmo Way . Take a teaspoonful of Swiss Kriss ever night when going to bed. People who suffer with gas -- cancer -- and ulcers should at least take a broken dose of Swiss Kriss religiously every night for the rest of their lives." About Bis Ma Rex, Satchmo preaches: "Gas is an awful thing to have . If you can -- always keep B.M.R. around the house . It is good for many, many things . and all illnesses come from the stomach. There's no such thing as an overdose." He also points out: "There's no business interest between me and these two companies. I buy my Swiss Kriss and Bis Ma Rex the same as anybody else. For three years I thought I had Ulcers . And it wasn't a'thing but Gas. It actually thrills me to be able to 'Hipp' my Public to what's 'Happening in the "Gas Section"' . Yeah . " He continues in this jazzy colloquial fashion for some time, of course concluding with "Merry Swiss Kriss and Happy Bis Ma Rex." Fascinating and strange. Accompanied by a fine 8" X 10" glossy black and white photograph of Armstrong playing, eyes gazed upward. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
