Some dust-staining, edgewear, marginal tears, some covers separated from rest of issue along center fold. Large 4to. Original colorful illustrated stapled wrpps. Istanbul, 1937-1949.

His drawings were featured in many magazines, including Diken, Büyük Mecmua, Yeni E lence, Tasvir-i Efkâr, Terbiye ve Tedris, Karagöz, Yedigün, Akbaba, and many others. He created some of his most recognizable characters for Karikatür, such as the "Chubby Auntie" and her husband, "Skinny Uncle", who were depicted on the back of every issue of Karikatür along with anti-capitalist humor. In 1946, after illustrating more than 500 issues of Karikatür, Gökçe left Karikatür to found Mizah, and continued illustrating his famous characters there. Both journals are scarce institutionally.

ROOSEVELT, Franklin Delano
[Government Printing Office] [1937], [Washington]. A record of a two-week cruise in July, 1936. Original blue cloth with an anchor in gilt on the front cover; [8], 19, [1] pages. Illustrated with a tipped-in frontispiece of the yacht and a large folding chart bound at the end. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the President on the front endpaper: "For Franklin D. Roosevelt Jr./from his affectionate Father/Franklin D. Roosevelt." Franklin, Jr., along with his brothers John and James, were piloted by their father aboard this charted schooner in a trip James called "Pa's prize cruise." Authorship of this log, along with the other eight pre-war logs of presidential cruise-vacations, has not been established, but according to Halter's bibliography, "it is probable that they were the work of several members of each cruise. As far as I had been able to check before this book went to press, a total of 17 logs were issued from 1934-1945." All were privately printed in very small numbers and are virtually unobtainable. When they do show up they are usually not signed or inscribed. While never achieving the renown of his father, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Jr. was a successful congressman (1949-1954) who twice ran for governor of New York and who was a close friend and early backer of John F. Kennedy. He later became a successful businessman. A scarce book on the market, this is an Association Copy of the highest order. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

HALDANE, J. B. S.
London: Cresset Press, 1937. Octavo. Original green cloth, spine lettered in silver, with the dust jacket. Head of spine very lightly soiled, endpapers and fore-edge lightly spotted; a very good copy complete with the dust jacket, not price clipped, spine ends and upper corners a little chipped, slightly spotted, but very well preserved and scarce thus. Illutrated throughout by L. H. Rosoman. First edition of this collection of fantasy stories for children by the eminent British scientist John Burdon Sanderson Haldane (1892-1964). Haldane was chiefly distinguished for his work in genetics, but also contributed to many other fields of science, ranging from cosmology to the physiology of diving. His intention in writing the book about Mr Leakey, a magician who lives in a London flat in company with his animal servants, was to demonstrate that science can be more exciting than magic ever was. "The book is peppered with 'asides' on scientific topics. One of the best is the story of Mr Dobbs, who made a large income out of the railways 'by travelling with excess luggage', having devised special suitcases which rose in the air when weighed: 'You see, if your bag weight a hundredweight more than it ought to you have to pay the railway company, but if it weighs a hundreweight less than nothing, they have to pay you.'"

Attractive post-prohibition cocktail guide, including recipes for such drinks as: American Flag, Waldorf Fizz, Paree Cocktail, Blinker, etc. An article in a contemporary Santa Cruz newspaper muses about this title thusly: "Cocktail hour visitors to the restful St. George hotel tap room are talking about John R. Iverson, recently 'discovered' by them as not only a modest, sincere and friendly bartender, but as an author of merit and one of the country's outstanding authorities on drinks and how to make them. Hiddin for almost the entire two months he has been at the St. George, his prominence under a natural screen of self-effacement, the young but serious-browed Mr. Iverson stood today revealed as the author of a deluxe 'cocktail manual, "Liquid Gems." A highly different but thoroughly authoritative book of drink recipes accepted as "tops" in its line by leaders of the beverage industry. Mr. Iverson, formerly of the world-famed Savoy hotel, London, compiled and published his novel work while at the California Golf Club in San Francisco. Beautifully printed and bound".

Octavio G. Barreda (Dir)
Mexico. Folio. Año 1 (1937/38) #1-27,#29-34 / Año 2 #1-17, 19,20,22-24 / Año 5 #1-12, #15, 17-24 / Año 6 #13-15 / Año 7 #1-3, 12 / Año 8 #13-17, #19-24 / Año 9 #107-110, 112, 114. (102/132 issues).Wrappers. According to Octavio Barreda, the magazine had among its purposes to be politically center, considering it a service publication. Another of the purposes of Letters of Mexico was to dignify the theater. From the beginning, works by Celestino Gorostiza, Xavier Villaurrutia, Rodolfo Usigli and Ignacio Retes were inserted. 132 numbers came out; the first 24 were biweekly and the other monthly. The numbers 2, 3 and 4 were financed by Alejandro Quijano, Genaro Fernández MacGregor, Eduardo Villaseñor, José Rubén Romero, León Salinas, Carlos Obregón and Octavio Barreda himself. Two months after leaving, that is, at number 5, according to the director of the magazine, the ads paid poorly the printing cost. For the first issue, Barreda obtained collaborations from some of his friends. On the initial page there is a poem by Carlos Pellicer, "Hours of June". Agustín Yáñez, Samuel Ramos, Xavier Villaurrutia, Ortiz de Montellano, Eduardo Villaseñor, Felipe Teixidor, Antonio Acevedo Escobedo and a young student of philosophy, a disciple of Ramos, named Adolfo Méndez Samará, also collaborated. To obtain positive results with the collaborators, Barreda set out to respect their ideologies and religious beliefs; it also excluded, as far as possible, foreign literature, materializing nationally and with the intention of presenting new values.

Riefenstahl, Leni
Im Deutschen Verlag, 1937. Hardcover. Large quarto. 284 pp. including nearly 300 full-page or half-page photogravure illustrations. Original publisher's orange cloth (other items in original wrappers as issued - see below). Very good. ¶ Archive of original materials relating to the famed 1936 Olympic Games, held in Berlin, including Leni Riefenstal's famous pictorial record of the Olympics. It is well known Hitler and the Nazis utilized this celebration of sport as propaganda for their regime, and how other countries, including America, responded. Prior to the 1936 Games, new laws in Germany stripped Jews of their citizenship; some American leaders discussed boycotting the games; and Jewish athletes throughout the world had to consider whether they should also refuse to participate. In the end, of course, America attended the The Nazi Olympics, and in one of the Olympics' most transcendent events, African American Jesse Owens' dominance on the track proved the fallacy of Aryan dreams. Riefensthal's "Schonheit" photographs are justly celebrated depictions of Sport: "These are such exquisite, such transcendentally beautiful images of athletes, that one almost forgets their context. And it's all Greek temples and hardbodies until page 54, when the German team enters the stadium in their immaculate white uniforms, their right arms raised in salute across the page to Der Fuhrer" (Andrew Roth, The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the 20th Century). "No story of the 1936 Berlin Summer Olympic games would be complete without a short discussion of Leni Riefenstahl's … [Click Below for Full Description]

Benjamin Graham & Spencer B. Meredith
Harper & Brothers Publishers. SECOND ED. copyright 1937 K-M. A very nice copy. Clean inside. Dj in good condition with some wear and tear to top and bottom of the spine. Dj has a watermark on back cover (see pictures). Additional pictures are available upon request. The advice he offers in this book is as useful and prescient today as it was sixty years ago. As he writes in the preface, "if you have precise information as to a company's present financial position and its past earnings record, you are better equipped to gauge its future possibilities. And this is the essential function and value of security analysis." Written just three years after his landmark Security Analysis, The Interpretation of Financial Statements gets to the heart of the master's ideas on value investing in astonishingly few pages. Readers will learn to analyze a company's balance sheets and income statements and arrive at a true understanding of its financial position and earnings record. Graham provides simple tests any reader can apply to determine the financial health and well-being of any company. [Attributes: Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]

1937. A complete run of all 39 issues (each issue approx. 8 pp.) of the Paris-based periodical, in tabloid format, dedicated to the solidarity of the French and Spanish people during the Spanish Civil War, with articles by noted international cultural figures on various aspects of the war, Spanish culture, French interests in Spain, and other subjects, profusely illustrated throughout after photographs, caricatures, political cartoons, reproductions of posters, etc. Some slight scattered toning. Folio. 1/2 leather with marbled boards, original illustrated self-wrpps. bound in, showing evidence of previous folds. Some wear to spine, slight abrasions, edgewear and minor rubbing. Paris 1937-1939. The scarce serial (as of July 2019 WorldCat locates scattered holdings in North American institutions, not all complete runs) presents a compendium of in-depth articles and political analysis, but is perhaps most impressive for its rich trove of visually arresting images, with many photographs showing the destruction wrought during the war.
