BEMELMANS, LUDWIG
BEMELMANS,LUDWIG. THE GOLDEN BASKET: ORIGINAL ART. Offered here is a wonderful original watercolor by Bemelmans that appears in reduced format on page 81 of the book. Published by Viking in 1936 the story is about the adventures of 2 little girls and their father who move into the Golden Basket Hotel in Bruges, Belgium. The image measures 11" wide by 8" high, done on artist board and is in very good condition. The background to the image is this: On an outing with the hotel owner and his son, the boat that the family was on capsized. They managed to crawl into a museum where their wet clothes were taken. The two little girls settled into a coach but the owner's son was in a sleigh on display. The picture shows two ladies visiting the military exhibit in the museum where the sleigh was displayed. They were shocked at the mysterious noises coming from the sleigh, convinced that a dead person was in there. The colors are rich and the image quite detailed. The Golden Basket is a Newbery Honor title and is notable also for having the first appearance of Madeline, who is pictured and featured on 6 pages. Bemelmans' original art from books is not easily found. This piece comes from the collection of a woman well known in the 40's and 50's as a graphic designer, art director and illustrator who was personal friends of Bemelmans. Sold with a copy of the book.

VERGEREAU, André & MARILAC
1936. 12 illustrations hors texte de Marilac. Editions Prima, 44 rue Servan, Paris (XIe). s.d. [1936 d’après le dépôt légal de la Bibliothèque Nationale]. 14 x 20 cm. 252 pp. 2 ff.n.ch. Couverture avec rabats illustrée par Marilac. L’éditeur présente ainsi son livre : « Mademoiselle Cinglade ! Quel surnom bien évocateur, et comme elle en est digne celle qui le porte. Après avoir su s’entourer de douces et passives amies, Mademoiselle Cinglade porte plus loin ses instincts flagellants. Habile manieuse du fouet, elle initiera à sa brûlante passion tout ce que le hasard mettra sur son chemin. Créant aprtout de la volupté dans la souffrance et l’humiliation, elle sera à la fois aimée et redoutée. Les pages magistralement écrites où la dominatrice passionnelle n’ayant plus que ses hautes guêtres de cuir pour toute parure, subit les châtiments qu’elle a si souvent infligés, ne sont pas les moins curieuses ni les moins suggestives de cet ouvrage. » Il s’agit d’une pièce maîtresse dans la collection des romans de flagellation français des années 1920-30, en raison de l’extrême originalité de son dessinateur, Marilac dont c’est hélas la seule contribution d’importance. Ce Marilac, dont l’identité ne fut jamais découverte, offre d’étonnantes compositions, fétichisant les croupes et les cuisses épanouies. Pour magnifier encore plus le séant des dames, le corset est plusieurs fois requis, étranglant davantage les chairs. Nous sommes loin, très loin du classicisme d’un Topfer. Avec ce seul livre, Marilac se place à un très haut niveau, près de Carlo et Wighead. Petites rousseurs en couv … [Click Below for Full Description]

Eins von 25 Exemplaren der nach Alphabet nummerierten Auflage, vorliegend " F ". Nach einer den separaten Radierungen beigegebenen Erklärung von Mary Buckland-Wright wurde der Text obwohl auf dem Titel mit 1935 datiert, erst 1936 gedruckt. Durch die Kriegswirren sind die Illustrationen jedoch nie fertiggestellt worden, sodass die hier beigegebenen Radierungen als Probedrucke zu betrachten sind. -------------------------- Stéphane Mallarmé war ein französischer Schriftsteller. Seine Gedichte gelten als Hauptwerke des Symbolismus. Zusammen mit Charles Baudelaire, Paul Verlaine und Arthur Rimbaud gilt er als einer der wichtigsten Wegbereiter der modernen Lyrik. -----ENGLISH DESCRIPTION. ------ With 4 original lithographs and an extra suite of 5 original etchings by John Buckland-Wright. One of 25 copies of the alphabet numbered edition, here "F". According to an explanation of Mary Buckland-Wright attached to the separate etchings, the text was dated 1935, although not printed on the title until 1936. However, the illustrations have never been completed due to the turmoil of war, so the engravings included here are to be regarded as proof prints. Stéphane Mallarmé was a French writer. His poems are considered to be major works of symbolism. Together with Charles Baudelaire, Paul Verlaine and Arthur Rimbaud he is considered one of the most important pioneers of modern poetry. ------ The prints in the book are printed on yellow paper and have no … [Click Below for Full Description]

CHURCH, Alonzo.
Baltimore, Maryland: John Hopkins, 1936. First edition. First edition of the first proof that the Entscheidungsproblem ('decision problem') is unsolvable, published seven months before Alan Turing published his own independent proof in his paper 'On computable numbers, with an application to the Entscheidungsproblem.' Church's proof was via his 'lambda-calculus'; Turing's was via his 'Turing machines.' "Church got it right and he got it first ... By any purely quantifiable evaluation Church's contribution was at least as important as Turing's" (Robert Irving Soare in Alan Turing, his work and impact, p. 67). The work of Church and Turing gave a negative answer to the problem posed by David Hilbert in 1928 of whether mathematics is 'decidable,' that is, whether there is an effective procedure to determine, for every mathematical statement, whether the statement is provable. Both the lambda-calculus and Turing machines have proved to be of seminal importance, not only for mathematical logic, but also for the development of computer science. Rare in the original printed wrappers. "Alonzo Church, in his historic ['An unsolvable problem in elementary number theory,' 1936], provides a rigorous formal characterization of what it means to be solvable by means of an algorithm, what has come to be known as Church's Thesis. This made it possible for him to prove that one specific problem is algorithmically unsolvable. In [this] work, Church specified a finite set of premises that encapsulates this specific problem so faithfully that an algorithm for testing whether a given conclusion … [Click Below for Full Description]

MARGARET MITCHELL
MACMILLAN. This is a true first edition, first printing of Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell, from May, 1936. There is no dust jacket, and the cover has some issues, most notably on the side. But this book has character - and I don't mean it's worn out. It was clearly somebody's favorite book, as they kept newspaper clippings relating to Gone with the Wind. The two images are affixed in the book, but there are several interesting clippings, including one from August 18, 1949 when Margaret Mitchell was fatally hit by a drunk driver. These help to show just how moving this book was, and provide fascinating context for the book and the film. I'd love for this to go to someone who would treasure it like the previous owner did. Domestic shipping will be $15, and will include insurance. [Attributes: First Edition]

Dem Buch wurde eine farbige Reproduktion des Werkes „La bagarre d'Austerlitz" von Marcel Duchamp vor den Text von Breton eingebunden. Robert Valançay war eng mit den Surrealisten befreundet und hat sich als Übersetzer vom Deutschen ins Französische einen Namen gemacht. Er übersetzte Werke u.a. von Hans Arp, Hans Bellmer, Alfred Kubin, Kurt Schwitters und Max Ernst. Der schöne Handeinband wurde von dem Pariser Meisterbuchbinder Georges Gauché gefertigt. Das ohnehin seltene Werk ist mit der Signatur von Marcel Duchamp nahezu unauffindbar.

MOORE, Marianne
(London): The Brendin Publishing Co, 1936. First edition. Limited to 120 copies printed at the Curwen Press. Abbott A5. Signed by Moore on the half-title page. Underneath the title-page imprint Moore has written: "i.e. 'Bryher' (Winifred Ellerman)". Moore has also annotated the acknowledgments page, re-writing it. Scoring through the first 4 words ("Thanks are due to") Moore has made the following changes, in brackets, to the printed acknowledgments: "[T]he Editors of Life and Letters Today, [of] The New Republic, Direction, The New English Weekly, and [of] The Criterion, [are thanked] for permission to print these poems." On the colophon-page Moore has made one final annotation, writing "Bryher" adjacent to George Plank's drawing, thereby identifying the printed initial "B" in the drawing. Of the title poem, Randall Jarrell wrote: "'The Pangolin' may be (Moore's) best poem; it is certainly one of the most moving, honest, and haunting poems that anyone has written in our century" - Poetry and The Age, p.182. 8vo, illustrated by George Plank, original decorated paper boards with printed label on the front cover.

Arnold Walter Lawrence was the youngest brother of T.E.Lawrence and his literary executor. "One of Lawrence's avowed purposes in joining the RAF was to write of the ranks from the inside. He began immediately making notes when he enlisted in 1922. With his dismissal in January 1923, because of unfavourable publicity, the project was set aside, not to be taken up again until he was posted to India in 1927. In March 1928 he sent a clean copy of the revised text to Edward Garnett [who] had copies typed which were circulated to a small circle, among them Air Marshal Trenchard.
