         Swastika Night by Murray Constantine

      Gollancz, London 1937 - First edition. 1 vols. 8vo. Presentation Copy. Shocking and prescient novel of a world after seven hundred years of Nazi domination, published by Victor Gollancz in July 1937. Murray Constantine was a pseudonym, used also for the 1934 novel Proud Man. The pseudonym was only revealed in the 1980s when feminist scholar Daphne Patai identified the author as novelist Katharine Burdekin, who had been attentive to the meaning of the Nazi ideology to predict in Swastika Night the annihilation of the Jews, the homosexual fetishism in the military, and the utter subjugation of women, who are kept apart as breeding animals. Hitler is revered as a god and the rotten secret at the heart of the Nazi hierarchy is that the birth rate is falling. Inscribed by the author on the flyleaf: "To John Hampson from 'Murray Constantine' July 1937"John Hampson (1901-1955), Hogarth Press author and literary critic, made several visits to Berlin in the 1930s and covered the Reichstag fire for the New English Weekly. "No one would publish Hampson's first novel because of the explicit treatment of its author's homosexuality. His second novel, a study in sister-fixation, was an immediate critical and commercial success. Published by the Hogarth Press, Saturday Night at The Greyhound (1931) went through three impressions in five weeks, rapidly selling 3,000 copies and winning Hampson wide critical praise. The novel was translated into French and reprinted by Penguin in 1937 ? Success brought this striking, tiny man friendships with other homosexual writers such as J. R. Ackerley, William Plomer, John Lehmann, and E. M. Forster" (ODNB). In 1936, Hampson married German actress Therese Gift (who had played Mrs Peachum in Brecht's Threepenny Opera) to provide her with a British passport. Hampson would have been a clear-eyed reader of this novel. Gollancz reprinted it in the Left Book Club in 1940.With a clipped review, almost certainly by Hampson, reading in part "? behind Mr. Constantine's satire there is something like logic. With all the arts except music forbidden, with women reduced to child-bearing animals and segregated from men, and with a new and monstrous religion of the Blood, some such nightmare as here presented might very well come to be. ? A weird story which if read with the attention it deserves it must leave one thinking uncomfortably hard."Copies of Swastika Night in dust-jacket are rare. A presentation copy, even more infrequently seen.A SUPERB ASSOCIATION COPY OF A LANDMARK FEMINIST WORK. Provenance: George Locke (Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, pp. 57-8); for Hampson, see Walter Allen, As I Walked Down New Grub Street (1981), pp. 55-71 Blue cloth. Near fine in near fine printed dust-jacket (spine panel faded, spine lightly toned) [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      Eight total issues in seven fascicules (Epoca 1, Nos. 1-6 and Epoca 2, No. 4/5), housed in two volumes (302, 160 pp.) of the irregularly published Fascist and National Syndicalist Spanish political journal, issued first by the Jefatura Nacional de Prensa y Propaganda and later by the Delegación Nacional de Prensa y Propaganda de F.E.T. de las J.O.N.S. on behalf of the Falange Española Tradicionalista y de las Juntas de Ofensiva Nacional-Sindicalista, Epoca 2 edited by Alfonso García Valdecasas. Scattered illustrations including photomontages. Epoca 1 issues with some foxing especially along fore-edge, Epoca 2 with some minor foxing especially to title page. 8vo.

The Falange Española Tradicionalista y de las Juntas de Ofensiva Nacional-Sindicalista was formed in April 1937 by General Franco, when he merged the Traditionalists with the pre-existing Falange Española de las Juntas de Ofensiva Nacional-Sindicalista (or FE de la JONS). The FE de la JONS was itself a merged group, founded in 1934 by the joining of the Falange Española (founded in October 1933) and the Juntas de Ofensiva Nacional-Sindicalista (founded in October 1931). From 1937 forward, the Falange became the sole legal political party in Spain until its dissolution in 1977. As of November 2017, WorldCat locates 6 various holdings of Fe in North American institutions. All appear to be incomplete; no earlier issues from Epoca 2 were found in the United States.

         The Road to Wigan Pier.

      London: Victor Gollancz, 1937.. FIRST EDITION. Octavo (22 x 15 cm), pp.viii; 264. With 32 black and white photographic plates. Not including the foreword, which appeared in the first Left Book Club edition. In publisher's blue cloth with yellow titles to spine. With original light yellow dust-jacket with titles to spine and front cover. Some spotting to prelims and edges; heavy tobacco scent. Very slight reading lean. Chipping to jacket corners and head and tail of spine; spine lightly browned. Very good indeed. Orwell's famous sociological analysis of working class life in the bleak industrial heartlands of Northern England prior to the Second World War, commissioned by Victor Gollancz in January 1936. Orwell received a £500 advance (two years' income for him at the time), and researched the book by spending the harsh winter of 1936 living in Barnsley, Sheffield and Wigan; three urban areas of heavy industry producing coal, steel and textiles respectively. The book was chosen by Gollancz for its popular Left Book Club, which issued most of the copies printed (over 44,000) in 1937, making the first Gollancz trade edition of just 2,150 copies very rare, especially in a jacket.

         The Hobbit or There and Back Again. Illustrated by the Author.

      London George Allen and Unwin 1937 - First edition, first issue, 8vo., frontispiece, one plate, 8 illustrations, map endpapers printed in red and black, all by the author, 2pp advertisements, fine modern binding by Sangorski and Sutcliffe in full green morocco with reproduction of original wrap-around dragon design in silver, with silver-star edges, preserved in a custom-made slip-case, a splendid example. The first of Tolkien's works of fiction to be published, The Hobbit began as an amusement for the Tolkien children, and reached print rather unexpectedly, a typescript of it having been shown to the publisher by a former pupil of Tolkien's. Once published, it was an equally unexpected success and Unwin pressed Tolkien for a sequel, which grew into the Lord of the Rings trilogy. [Attributes: First Edition]
