        FINGERS OF FEAR

      New York: Covici, Friede, Publishes, [1937]. First edition. Some rubbing to cloth at corner tips and spine ends, a very good copy in a very good dust jacket (designed by Hawkins) with rubbing to folds, shelf wear at the corners and spine ends with loss at upper corners and light chipping at head of spine panel. Uncommon in jacket.. Octavo, pp. [1-6] [1-2] 3-309 [310-314: blank] [note: first and last two leaves are blanks], original green cloth, spine panel stamped in black, top edge stained yellow, other edges rough trimmed. A tale of mystery and horror set in New England at the ancestral home of the Ormes family "which, lost in one of the wildest and most isolated reaches of the Berkshires, was the topic of whispered and fearful comment by the natives for miles around." "... an outrageous horror novel done with admirable panache. A brief plot synopsis would be impossible (not to mention improbable), but hauntings, vampirism, incest, lycanthropy, dead babies, and sexual deviance provide only some of the mayhem confronting the cowardly hero at Ormesby. The book can be read straight, or straight up, but it certainly makes a stylish, literate exercise in grand guignol horror." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 300. "Piles horror upon horror until there is not a shiver left in the reader's spine." - New York Times. "Horror laid on thick ... Written forty years too early. Today it would make a fine horror film." - Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1233. Carter, The Vampire in Literature, p. 84. In 333. Bleiler (1978), p. 148. Reginald 10683. Hubin (1994), p. 602.

Presented on the card is a wonderful portrait of Cary Grant and Constance Bennett as the ghosts wreaking havoc upon Roland Young but a caricature drawing of them as well, represented as ghosts. The card captures the light-heartedness of the story, one of the best remembered films of the 1930s. Card has been cleaned and a few areas professionally addressed, including filling-in of pinholes at the four corners and along the top blank white margin, creasing under the "Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer" name, two edge tears just below that, one edge tear at the mid bottom margin.

        The Road to Wigan Pier.

      Victor Gollancz 1937 - FIRST TRADE EDITION, with the Foreword meant to have been omitted (and only present in some copies - see below), 32 plates, one or two faint spots to borders of prelims and a few handling marks, some interesting annotation in pencil to margins at close of text, pp. xxiv, 264, 8vo, original mid blue cloth, backstrip lettered in gilt, edges faintly spotted, illegible signature dated 1945 on fly-leaf and a later bookplate, typed Edwin Rolfe poem 'Definition' tipped in to recto of rear free endpaper, dust jacket, spine slightly darkened, jacket foxed and defective about 3cms at foot of backstrip panel, small circular label to backstrip panel covering price (see below), good. The first edition of this book was the Left Book Club edition (a large edition of 44,150 copies), which was not available to the public. Fenwick remarks that this, the first public edition 'is really only a reissue of the first edition, without the foreword, with a new title-page, and a variant binding' (2,150 copies printed). However a small number (usually stated as 150) were issued with the Foreword, as here (just as a small number - 200 according to Fenwick - of the Left Book Club edition were issued without it). These copies of the trade edition with the foreword are likely to have been among the first issued, as a number apparently went to bulk trade buyers such as Boots (with some examples surviving from their lending library service). It was often also the case that colonial and overseas markets received early issues from the publisher, since those copies with the longest to travel would be sent out first. This copy seems to be a clear example of that practice, with the presence on the spine of the dustjacket of a contemporary small printed sticker of the Austral Library. This was a long-established bookshop and lending library in Melbourne, which by the 1930s was advertising itself primarily as a bookseller. It was common practice for Australian dealers to sticker over the price, as here, because although the units of currency were the same their value was different. It is slightly regrettable that the ownership inscription cannot be attributed - one might hazard that the surname is Dunne - as the small amount of annotation is very direct and engaged with the text, and leads in to the tipped-in appendix of Rolfe's poem (where 'comrade' is the word in question).

      Oakland: Alameda County Committee, Communist Party, 1937. First edition. Both leaves folded but undamaged; one leaf modestly toned and with a few marks. Broadside, single leaf , approx. 12-1/2 X 18-1/2 inches, together with a second copy, on different paper and of slightly different dimensions. Letterpress broadside, exquisitely produced, with decorative initial and two lengthy columns of text beneath the headline, invoking the spirit of 1776, along with the labor movement, and the Abraham Lincoln Brigade then fighting alongside Spanish loyalists against Franco, and framing the CPUSA's pursuit of labor justice in the context of American patriotism. There are two separate printings of the broadside here: the larger of the two, on laid paper, has a printed statement of limitation, identifying it as one of fifty copies printed on a Franklin hand-press; the slightly smaller printing is printed on different paper and has been numbered by hand "Copy no. 31," though no limitation is stated. The only copy located in OCLC is at the Bancroft Library of the University of California and is cataloged as "no. 131" indicating it is one of the latter.

        Three original lithographed posters and programs for the Pushkin centenary in 1937

      Puskina Komiteja, Riga, Daugavpils, and Liepaja 1937 - Lithographed posters in two colors, in Latvian; 91 × 60; 94 × 60; and 99 × 66 cm. Faint horizontal and vertical fold lines. The celebration of the centenary of Alexander Pushkin's death in 1937 by the Russian diaspora would become one of the biggest symbols of its effort to uphold Russian culture and values in exile. An international phenomenon, the centenary resulted in special issues of journals and newspapers, illustrated editions of Pushkin's works and Pushkiniana, as well as a host of lectures, readings, musical and theatre performances. These three posters advertise a representative sampling of such events, organized under the auspices of the Pushkin Committees of Daugavpils, Liepaja, and Riga, the three most populous cities of Latvia. The production of such posters in Latvian and in the provinces speaks to the high degree of identification of Latvians with Russian culture and with the large émigré community in Latvia of the 1930s.
