London, Gollancz, 1937. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. Uncommon in jacket, increasingly so inscribed. Inscribed by the author 'To John Hampson from 'Murray Constantine' July 1937'. Hampson was an author for the Hogarth Press and critic. A landmark feminist novel, and a classic work of science fiction, recently reprinted in the SF Masterworks series from Gollancz. Shocking and prescient novel of a world after seven hundred years of Nazi domination. 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. Near fine with some fading to the spine and a little toning.

In very fine condition, with slightly yellowed and nicked glassine cover and the tiniest nick to the lower right corner front cover, but otherwise a crisp and fine copy. Parr / Badger, v2, 140; Open Book 198-199. A seminal artists' book and conceptual exercise, Various Small Fires compiles fifteen sepia toned black-and-white images of small flames emitted by stoves, cigarettes, matches, etc. followed by a tall glass of milk to soothe the heartburn. Credited with reinventing the artist's book, throughout the 1960s and 70s, Ruscha produced sixteen conceptual books of photographs, focused on the symbols of American life and consumer culture. By turning away from the craftsmanship and luxury status that typified the livre d'artiste in favor of the artistic idea or concept, expressed simply and in editions that were unsigned (the present copies were signed outside of the edition) and inexpensively printed, Ruscha opened the genre to the possibilities of mass-production and distribution. These books proved to be highly influential, inspiring many artists to create their own responses, including Bruce Nauman, who for his 1968 Burning Small Fires burned a copy of Ruscha's Various Small Fires and Milk and … [Click Below for Full Description]

HEYWOOD, Marion Mackenzie
1937. Eight murals or friezes depicting African-American children as characters from nursery rhymes. Meant to be hung in a continuous pattern, the mural consists of eight oil paintings on canvas, each of which measures 19" x 82"; if hung together, they would measure about 55 feet long! Each canvas is gently rolled, with a protective tissue wrapper. There are small cracks in the paint, with no loss, and they are overall fine. A remarkable and enigmatic mural illustrating African-American children in themes from various nursery rhymes including the Mother Goose rhymes, (especially from "There was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe"), themes from Alice in Wonderland, Little Black Sambo, and others. Some of the panels are Signed and/or dated in 1937 by Marion Mackenzie Heywood, a Philadelphia-based artist, of whom we know little.

Peterson, Roger C.
Los Angeles: Wetzel Publishing Co., Inc., (c.1937). Los Angeles: Wetzel Publishing Co., Inc.. Very Good+ in Very Good dj. (c.1937). First Edition. Hardcover. [a good sound copy, slight deterioration to cloth at top of spine, signature and rubber-stamped name of one-time owner (screenwriter Richard Collins) on ffep; jacket is lightly soiled, short closed tear at bottom front flap-fold, tiny chip at base of spine, about 1/4" paper loss at top of spine]. (B&W photographs) An examination of the Rudolph Valentino cult about a decade after his death, by an author who witnessed its growth first-hand, as custodian of the Cathedral Mausoleum at the Hollywood Memorial Park Cemetery (today known as "Hollywood Forever"), a position he assumed the year following Valentino's interment and held until 1940. "The germ of my desire to write this book," he explains in his Preface, "took life and grew from my amazement at the never ceasing parade of people seeking the Valentino crypt, when there are so few, comparatively, looking for the tombs of others who achieved greater and more sustained fame during their lives." He goes to some pains to explain that he was just a regular guy from Duluth, "too normal and healthy a person to be unduly influenced by the uncanny or the mystic," but a decade or so of dealing with the many thousands of devotees, seems to have turned him into a believer. (But not much of a historian: at least two of the stills in the book's photo section are mis-identified, one rather weirdly as being from "The Barber of Seville," definitely not a Valentin … [Click Below for Full Description]

Walsh: "What else do you wish to write today Mr. Ruth?" The Babe: "Just tell 'em I got hold of a fast one--high and inside--an' I knocked the son of a bitch outa the park." The artistry is consummate--this is Babe Ruth recognizable from a mile away, captured in the perfect moment, the whole image dashed off with panache. The artist is Christy Walsh, who gave up a career (but not the skill) as a professional sports cartoonist in 1919 to organize a syndicate of some 30 professional sports ghost-writers, with himself first among equals.

Lotte Altmann, secrétaitre de Stefan Zweig que l'écrivain épousa en 1939, donne des nouvelles de leur vie commune à Londres où ils s'étaient rencontrés et vivaient leur relation en secret.

George, David Lloyd
New York: Little, Brown and Company, 1933, 1934,1936, 1937. A Very Good + set of David Lloyd George's Memoir of the first World War. Active in British Politics, in 1890 he narrowly won a by-election to become the Member of Parliament for Caernarvon Boroughs. He held that seat for fifty-five years, served in Henry Campbell-Bannerman's cabinet, served as Chancellor of the Exchequer, and helped to establish the modern welfare state. In 1915, he served as Minister of Munitions under a Liberal-led wartime coalition and there rapidly expanded production, and, in 1916, he was appointed Secretary of State for War, a post he held only for a short while. When Asquith resigned his post in early December 1916, David Lloyd George became Prime Minister, a post he held through October 19, 1922. In 1940,he declined an offer to serve in Winston Churchill's War Cabinet and was raised to the peerage in 1945. He was, of course, just the man to write about the War. This Memoir is given in six Volumes issued sequentially over several years. The First Volume [1914-1915] is the first edition, second printing (issued in the month following the first printing), the Second Volume [1915-1916] is the first edition second printing (issued in the same month as was the first printing), the Third Volume [1916-1917 America Enters the World War] is the first edition, first printing, the fourth Volume IV [1917 Tragic Failures of 1917] is the first edition, first printing, the fifth Volume [1917-1918 Call for American Troops] is the first edition, first printing [Note: the dust jacket's rear flap extension whi … [Click Below for Full Description]
