        Sketches].

      1937 - 2 sketches; 1 pencil and 1 conte pencil on paper. Mounted. Maxa Nordau was born to a middle class Parisian family. Her father, Max Nordau, was a physician and one of the founders of the International Zionist Organisation together with Theodor Herzl. She became an artist, studying oil painting, acrylic painting and sketching, before first exhibiting her work in 1924 in the official Salon in Strasbourg. During World War II, she left France and moved to the United States, where she displayed her work in several exhibitions in New York. Whilst there she took the opportunity to continue studying painting at the New York City College. When she returned to Paris in 1946, Nordau continued painting and began presenting her work in private galleries. Most of Nordau's paintings are portraits, particularly of women. Nordau travelled many times, and visited Palestine, Egypt, Syria, Greece, Morocco and other countries. The influence from her many journeys to the Middle East and to other Arabic countries is evident in the characters in her paintings. The Orient fascinated Nordau, and she paints the Arab women in her paintings in a very vivid and colourful manner. Nordau wasn't the only artist who had an interest in the Orient. This theme was very common amongst Jewish artists in the beginning of the 20th century, specifically amongst artists from Zionist families who had visited Palestine. Some of this group even left Europe and went to live and work in the growing Jewish state. When Nordau died in 1991, she left a large number of portraits and several illustrations. Although she was indeed French, Maxa Nordau is considered to be a part of what is called the 'School of Paris', a group of non-French artists, who worked in Paris before and during World War II.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1937 - 1937 Wisden Original Hardback

      1937. Hi, This lot is an Original 1937 Hardback Wisden . It is in very good condition, the era of 1933 to 1937 were not the best of hardbacks as Wisden swapped materials in 1933, it resulted in poorer quality Wisdens but I am pleased to say that this 1937 is far better than most for the year. The front and spine gilt is excellent for a poor year and the boards are very good, there are a few light marks mainly to the front but still nice boards. The pastedowns are fabulous and very yellow, the hinges are excellent and the internal pages are very clean. Some spotting to the page block else would be a 9. By far superior to many of the same year. Nice photoplate, Hard to find in good condition, this is not too far off excellent.

        Original mimeographed manuscript screenplay signed by Cecil B. DeMille, Anthony Quinn, and others

      1937. paperback. good. Paramount Films, 200 pages, July, 1937, bound in two staples, no cover (as issued), signed in ink on the cast page by director Cecil B. DeMille and actors Anthony Quinn, Frederic March, Franciscka Gaal, Akim Tamiroff, Beulah Bondi, and Jack Hubbard. Note: Cecil B. DeMille's swashbuckling film was a fictionalized account of General Andrew Jackson's recruitment of the pirate Jean Lafitte to fight for America during the War of 1812. In 1958 DeMille attempted a remake of the film starring Yul Brenner and Charlton Heston but became seriously ill on the set, delegating the task of "directing" to his son-in-law, Anthony Quinn, who had starred in the original. It was the only time in his career that Quinn ever received a motion picture credit for directing. It was also the very last film made by DeMille, who died four weeks after the film's release. Condition: usual toning (as should be expected) with dark bold signatures. Loosely placed inside a leather binder for safer handling.

        When Crime Pays Off: A volume written after a continuous lesson learned in that always-existent institution, the School of Experience

      Press of Heiter-Starke Printing Co, [Mobile, AL 1937 - Memoirs of a former member of the Pensacola, Florida, police force, and the crimes and criminals he has encountered, generously illustrated with photographs, including mugshots. Herrington joined the police force of the coastal city of Pensacola in 1907, and was shortly thereafter nominated as a mounted man, riding his beloved and trusted horse (and later motorcycle) on his rounds. Over the course of his career, Herrington "arrested hundreds of boys and girls," (p. 17) of whom the vast majority were under the age of 24. The pattern of juvenile delinquincy which the author witnessed during his thirty years as a police officer led to his publishing this collection in the hopes of addressing and educating a more youthful readership--among the anecdotes are "Trio of Young Bandits," "A Youthful Law Breaker," "The Reform School," "Wild Youth," and many others. The book begins with the murder of 19-year-old farmer's daughter, Lola Canady, presumably at the hands of Claude Neal, a black man. Neal was overtaken by a mob before he could be captured by the police, and was mutilated and lynched. Additional anecdotes include that of young men "hoboing" on freight trains with the resultant loss of legs; "A Terrifying Squirrel Hunt"; "Colored Killers"; "Two Death Cars"; and the electrocution of a "Negro Giant." Concludes with biblical advice, a promotion of the Boyscouts, and advice to children and parents on juvenile delinquency. Quite scarce: OCLC locates 2 copies as of April, 2016, none outside Florida. Octavo (23.5cm.); original red card wrappers, photo-illustrated belly-band; 124pp.; photographic illus. throughout. Wrapper extremities a bit rubbed and worn, long closed tear to belly-band touching text and image without loss, rear cover of belly band quite rubbed with loss to text and image with some minor loss of meaning. Still, Very Good overall in a Good or better example of an exceedingly ephemeral band. Perforated subscription card bound in rear. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Hornpipe (The Sailor)

      Rexroth dated the painting 1937, indicated the orientation (top), and the palette: "red, yellow, blue, black, grey, white." The title, "Hornpipe" is written in the artist's hand on the verso of the painting. Rexroth also notes that another version exists in the collection of Sergei Chermayeff. For a 1973 exhibition of his works at Occidental College in Los Angeles, Rexroth retained the same dating and assigned the title "The Sailor." In the 1981 University of California at Santa Barbara Rexroth Retrospective, it was dated 1925-27. It is reproduced in letterpress on the cover of Excerpts from a Life (1981) and is dated "ca. 1929 Wax, silica, and pure decorator colors on Masonite, 15 5/8" wide x 19 7/8" high, ca. 1937, framed. Some tiny chips, and/or flecks, in the paint, perhaps the result of a bit of abrading, otherwise the painting is in near fine condition.

        Murder à la Richelieu (Signed First Edition)

      Doubleday, Doran, Garden City 1937 - First Edition. INSCRIBED by the Blackmon to author Peggy Gaddis (Erolie Pearl Gaddis Dern, 1895-1966) on the front endpaper, in the year of publication: "Affectionately, to the Best of Friends / Peggy Gaddis / From the author / Anita Blackmon (Mrs. Harry Pugh Smith) / August 29, 1937."Blackmon wrote extensively as Mrs. Harry Pugh Smith, with notable titles like "Handmade Rainbows" (1936), "Happy-Go-Lucky" (1938), and thousands of short stories, many of which were published in romance magazines in the 1930s. This is the first of two "Adelaide Adams" mysteries, the other being "There Is No Return" (1938). Her relationship to Peggy Gaddis is so far undocumented, but the two did publish titles under the Arcadia House and William Godwin publishing firms (as well as a number of shared magazine appearances), where it is likely the two crossed paths. This association of the two writers is unique, given the relative obscurity of their prewar publications.Very Good plus lacking the scarce dust jacket. Slight spine lean and light bumping to the spine ends, light foxing to the top page edges and endpapers, and light fading to the spine. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Toscanini's Hooded Cape

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. A black hooded cape with red lining, owned and worn by one of the most acclaimed musicians of the late 19th and of the 20th century, renowned for his intensity, his perfectionism, his ear for orchestral detail and sonority, and his photographic memory.  He was at various times the music director of La Scala Milan, the Metropolitan Opera in New York, and the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. Later in his career he was appointed the first music director of the NBC Symphony Orchestra (1937â??54), and this led to his becoming a household name (especially in the United States) through his radio and television broadcasts and many recordings of the operatic and symphonic repertoire. The present striking garment comes by descent to his son, Walfredo and was acquired by us directly from his Estate.

        Of Mice and Men.

      New York: Covici-Friede, 1937. First edition, first issue, with the words "and only moved because the heavy hands were pendula" printed as lines 20 and 21 on page 9, and bullet between the eights on page 88. Octavo, original cloth. Boldly signed by John Steinbeck on the front free endpaper. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with some light rubbing to the extremities. The author began Of Mice and Men as a children's story. "Although the finished novelette does not seem appropriate for children--that intention was obviously abandoned--the simplicity of its style and the clarity and precision of its imagery may well have been prompted by this original purpose... " (Benson, 326). The result is "a sophisticated and artful rendering of the basic conflict between two worlds: between an idealized landscape and the real world with its pain and anguish" (Literary History of the American West). "A thriller, a gripping tale . . . that you will not set down until it is finished. Steinbeck has touched the quick" (The New York Times).

Tourné dans un Barcelone constamment bombardé par l'aviation italienne, le film est réalisé à la va-vite, entre deux alertes. Après de multiples péripéties, seules vingt-huit séquences sont tournées sur les trente-neuf prévues avant la mobilisation en 1939, qui stoppera le projet. Le film sortira cependant en 1945, recevant le prix Louis Delluc. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Original Portrait Photograph - signed in green ink by Philip Glass.

      Original Black-and-White Photograph on archival paper. Excellent condition, mounted. Signed photographs by Glass are extremely rare ! Philip Morris Glass (born January 31, 1937) is an American composer. He is considered one of the most influential music makers of the late 20th century. His music is also often controversially described as minimal music, along with the work of the other "major minimalists" La Monte Young, Terry Riley and Steve Reich. Glass has distanced himself from the "minimalist" label, describing himself instead as a composer of "music with repetitive structures". Though his early mature music shares much with what is normally called "minimalist", he has since evolved stylistically. Currently, he describes himself as a "classicist", pointing out that he is trained in harmony and counterpoint and studied such composers as Franz Schubert, Johann Sebastian Bach and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart with Nadia Boulanger. Glass has founded his namesake musical group, Philip Glass Ensemble, with which he still performs on keyboards, as well as operas, musical theatre works, ten symphonies, eleven concertos, solo works, chamber music including string quartets and instrumental sonatas, and film scores. Three of his film scores have been nominated for Academy Awards. (Wikipedia)

        William Lyon Mackenzie King Signed Letter and Borwick Photograph Album during King's Return Voyage in early July 1937 from Berlin after meeting Hermann Goering and Adolf Hitler on June 29, 1937

      Southampton, QC, 1937. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good. [Southampton, Quebec, Toronto, New York, 1937] - A mini archive commemorating Canada's Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King's journey to London and Berlin at the dawn of the Second World War, featuring an album of photographs, a manuscript letter and a telegraph, from his return voyage on the Empress of Britain. The album belonged to, and was compiled by, British politician Lieutenant Colonel George Oldroyd Borwick, who made the acquaintance of Mackenzie King on this voyage to Canada on July 3, 1937. The manuscript signed letter is written by King on the ship's stationery addressed to Borwick and dated 6 July 1937 while both parties were onboard the Empress of Britain. The telegraph was sent from King on 20 July l930 from Ottawa, to Borwick who was on another ship soon to make his voyage back to England. Album contains approximately 111 photographs and postcards mounted onto ivory cardstock leaves with locations captioned in manuscript, as well as the itinerary (abstract logs) of two ships, and one ephemeral menu card. Oblong 8vo. album measuring approximately 26 x 19 cm, burgundy cloth boards with gilt lined borders. Photographs, printed cards and ephemera printed vary in size, the smallest measuring approximately 6 x 8 cm, and the largest 16 x 11cm. Minor wear to boards, two printed cards with stuck together tears, otherwise in all in very good condition. Canada's 10th and longest-serving prime minister William Lyon Mackenzie King (1874-1950} is best known for his leadership of Canada throughout the Second World War (1939-1945) when he mobilized Canadian money, supplies and volunteers to support Britain. while at the same time boosting the economy and maintaining home front morale. Not long before the war, In June 1937, he had visited Adolf Hitler, the Chancellor of Germany in Berlin, and made It clear that he would support England in the event of any campaign against her. The present album contains photographs of his return voyage to Canada. The accompanying letter was written by Mackenzie, only eight days after the said meeting in Berlin. who requests a private conference with a British politician. In April 1937, in his third term as Canada's Prime Minister (Oct. 23, 1935 to Nov. 15 1948) William Lyon Mackenzie King (1874-1950) departed from Canada for a European tour of great Importance. His agenda consisted of three priorities: attending the coronation of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth on 12 May. participating in the Commonwealth Prime Ministers' conference from 14 May to 24 June, and making a visit to Berlin. In the capital city, on 29 June 1937, Mackenzie met with the notorious Adolf Hilter, the Chancellor of Germany, telling him that if an attack were to be made upon England, Canada would not stand aside, but would Indeed actively support her Commonwealth nation. Mackenzie is said to have been impressed by the leader as many were prior to the war, describing him as "one who truly loves his fellow man, and his country, and would make any sacrifice for their good." It is this W.L.M.K meeting with Hitler and others and his positive responses and convinced there would be no war, much like the UK's Chamberlain, that makes this collection so historically interesting and collectable. The letter, and Borwick meetings after the German trip support what King wrote in his diaries. Hiltler was nice, there would be no war and all was well. The focus on social engagement with the Borwick's bring this attitude to life in King words and Borthwick pictures. These are the lessons from history to be learned as even Prime Ministers believe what they want without getting to the realities. What a great collection in this regard. Following is form Library and Archives W.L.M.K's diary journal giving his impressions of Hitler… "King was impressed by Hitler. He wrote, "My sizing up of the man as I sat and talked with him was that he is really one who truly loves his fellow-men, and his country, and would make any sacrifice for their good." (Diary, June 29, 1937) Hitler appeared to be "a man of deep sincerity and a genuine patriot." (Diary, June 29, 1937) King saw similarities between himself and Hitler, writing, "As I talked with him, I could not but think of Joan of Arc. He is distinctly a mystic .... He is a teetotaller and also a vegetarian; is unmarried, abstemist in all his habits and ways." (Diary, June 29, 1937)" Below quoted from a CBC online article - the Rise of Hitler. "King's apparent naiveté suited his political goals well. Canadas national unity was his main concern. King was determined to avoid drawing Canada into overseas conflicts that could upset the countrys fragile harmony. He had a vivid memory of the conscription crisis of the First World War that had bitterly divided French and English Canada. On an international level, King believed like other leaders like Britains Neville Chamberlain that a stable Germany served as an important counterweight to Stalin's Soviet Union." This album represents Mackenzie King's return voyage from England, departing from Southampton on the Empress of Britain on 3 July 1937, for Quebec City, and Is accompanied by a letter written by him to British politician George Borwick who was on the same ship for a visit to America. Mackenzie's meeting with the Chancellor of Germany, including comments made regarding English-Canadian relations and political commitments would most certainly have been discussed. Excerpts from the King manuscript letter: "July 6th, 1937, Suite 147-151, Dear Colonel Borwick:" "I was pleased to learn in a letter received aboard the Empress from Lord Drummond, about my fellow passengers. I should much like to have the pleasure of making the acquaintance of Mrs. Borwick and yourself, and of a talk with you about Canada." ".... meet me in my suite... we could talk more quietly than in the lounge... I am not inviting anyone to join us that we may have a bit more freedom of conversation." 'Yours sincerely, [signed J Mackenzie King" End Excerpts. From Ottawa on 20 July 1937, Mackenzie also sent Borwick a telegraph. Borwick was staying a few days at the Prince Arthur Hotel built in 1911, in Port Arthur [now part of Thunder Bay], before visiting Niagara Falls and New York City. The letter and telegraph are both addressed to Lieutenant-Colonel George Oldroyd Borwick (1879-1964), former MP for North Croydon, having served from 1918 to 1922, and who compiled the photograph album. Following a photograph and abstract log sailing itinerary of the Empress of Britain, and a photograph is of Mr & Mrs Borwick onboard, the album contains over one hundred pre-WWII nostalgic views of some of North America's eastern port cities. The Empress of Britain is seen on the St. Lawrence River. A series of photographs shows historical sites of Quebec City. Monuments and important places in Montreal are remembered in a series of postcard views. Mackenzie returned to his home in Ottawa (the 231 hectare Mackenzie King Estate in Gatlneau Park), and thus parted company with the Borwicks, who cruised through the Thousand Islands before arriving in Toronto, which is shown in twenty professional views. Making a sojourn slightly north, the Borwicks captured snapshot views as they passed through the Soo locks at Sault Ste. Marie and entered Lake Superior. The album further Includes four (4) rare snapshot photographs of Kakabeka Falls, as well as two (2) panoramic views of Niagara Falls. The couple went on to tour New York City, staying in the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, which from their suite on the 22nd floor offered splendid city views. Twenty-three (23) classic and nostalgic views of New York City are included in the album, featuring the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State building, Time Square, Bowling Green, Radio City, the Brooklyn Bridge, Park Avenue the Hudson River docks, and so forth. (William Lyon Mackenzie King, George Oldroyd Borwick, and Mrs. Mary Borwick, all appear on the passenger ship list for the Southampton-Quebec voyage of Empress of Britain, 3-8 July 1937, available through online sources.] William Lyon Mackenzie King (1874-1950) was Canada's 10th and longest-serving prime minister. He is best known for his leadership of Canada throughout the Second World War (1939-1945) when he mobilized Canadian money, supplies and volunteers to support Britain, while at the same time boosting the economy and maintaining home front morale. In March 1936, in response to the German remilitarization of the Rhineland, King had the Canadian High Commissioner in London inform the British government that if Britain went to war with Germany over the Rhineland issue, Canada would remain neutral. In June 1937, during an Imperial Conference of all the Dominion Prime Ministers in London, King informed British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain that Canada would only go to war if Britain were directly attacked, and, furthermore, that if Britain were to become involved in a continental war then Chamberlain was not to expect Canadian support. Mackenzie King held a special interest in Berlin, Germany, stemming from the fact that he was born, and lived his early life, in Berlin, Ontario, and also a two-month stay there during his university years. Although the name of the Ontario town was changed in 1916 to Kitchener, King always thought of it as Berlin. When he was in Berlin, Germany, he often referred to his birthplace of the same name in Canada. In spite of his declarations in 1936, and his connection to German Berlin, during his meeting with the Chancellor of Germany, he expressed unwavering commitment to England in case of war. The Library Archive of Canada describes Mackenzie's visit to Berlin In 1937 as follows: "In June 1937, Mackenzie King, now 62, returned to Berlin to visit the German Chancellor... King had thought of making the visit the year before, but had been advised against it by 0.D. Skelton, his Under Secretary of State for External Affairs. Canada's official foreign policy in the late 1930s was isolationist. Nothing was to interfere with the maintenance of national unity. But King had been a very successful labour mediator, and felt that he could bring these talents to bear on the threat of another world war. King had not had any formal plans to visit [the Chancellor of Germany] when he travelled to England for the Coronation of George VI, but decided to go after receiving an invitation from Joachim von Ribbentrop, the German Ambassador to Britain, and the encouragement of the British government. Arriving in Berlin on June 27, King registered at the Ad/on Hotel. For the first two days he was taken to see youth camps, labour camps, the Berlin Zoo and the Olympic Stadium, where he watched a number of sports competitions from the seat that [the Chancellor of Germany] had occupied during the 1936 Olympic Games. On the morning of June 29, King met with Hermann Goering, the German Air Minister. They talked for an hour and a half about trade between Canada and Germany, Canada's relationship with Britain, and German expansion in Europe. When Goering declared that England was trying to control Germany's actions, King replied that what 'England was most concerned about, was danger of some quick, precipitate action being taken in any place, which might set the whole of Europe aflame.' (Diary, June 29, 1937)... King went next to the Hindenburg Palace for his interview with [the Chancellor of Germany]. The interview lasted for more than an hour. King showed [the Chancellor of Germany] the biography of himself by Norman Rogers and pointed out a picture of the cottage where he was born in Berlin, Ontario. ·... I had brought this book with me to show him where I was born, and the associations which I had with Berlin, Germany, through Berlin, Canada.' (Diary, June 29, 1937) King spoke of being in Berlin 37 years before. King praised the constructive work of [the Chancellor of Germany's] regime and then mentioned the fear and suspicion caused by German rearmament. [The Chancellor of Germany] indicated that Germany was rearming to gain respect and blamed all of Germany's difficulties on the Treaty of Versailles. He told King, 'so far as war is concerned, you need have no fear of war at the instance of Germany. We have no desire for war; our people don't want war, and we don't want war.' (Diary, June 29, 1937) King stressed the fact that Canada was a free and independent nation, even though it was a part of the British Empire. He said, however, that in the face of an act of aggression on the part of any country, all parts of the Commonwealth would stand together. When [the Chancellor of Germany] complained about the British, King assured him that England wanted peace. At the end of their meeting, Hitler gave King an autographed, framed photograph of himself. After the interview with Adolf Hitler King walked through the Tiergarten and found the house where he had lived with the Webers in 1900... That night he attended the Opera and sat in the former royal box, in the seat where Hitler usually sat when he was there. King was happy when he left Berlin. 'Looking back on the German visit, I can honestly say it was as enjoyable, informative and inspiring, as any visit I have ever had anywhere. Indeed I doubt if I ever had four days which were more interesting or indeed comparable in significance.' (Diary, June 30, 1937) He was 'tremendously relieved' and believed there would be no war... Once the war began, though, King's opinion of Adolf Hitler changed radically. On August 20, 1946, King, now 71, flew to Berlin from the peace conference in Paris, to view the damage done by the war." Lieutenant-Colonel George Oldroyd Borwick (1879- 1964) was the son of Joseph Cooksey Borwick and Ellen Elizabeth Oldroyd. He was educa1ed at Harrow School, Harrow on the Hill, London, and graduated from Trinity College at the University of Oxford. On 14 May 1915 he married Hon. Mary Cavendish, daughter of Henry Anson Cavendish, 4th Baron Waterpark and Emily Stenning. He gained the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel in the service of the Surrey and Sussex Yeomanry, Royal Field Artillery, and was decorated with the award of the Companion, Distinguished Service Order (D.S.O.) in 1917. He was decorated with the award of the Legion of Honour. He held the office of Member of Parliament (M.P.) for North Croydon between 1918 and 1922. He died on 27 June 1964 at age 85, without issue.
