The book itself tells the story of the genesis of the tank, constituting the first word on the matter from the man who directed the initial project. Gestating at first as an armoured car for the Royal Naval Air Service, the tank was first referred to as a caterpillar landship.

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

      [Mobile, AL: Press of Heiter-Starke Printing Co, 1937]. First Edition. 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.

        Despair. Translated from the Russian by the author.

      London, John Long Ltd. 1937. - FIRST ENGLISH EDITION. Crown octavo, pp. 287 (+ 24). Elegantly hand-bound in full black oasis morocco leather, spine gilt-lettered in six compartments with raised bands, gilt title stamped to upper cover, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, publisher's original cloth bound in at rear. Internally clean; a fine copy. Internally clean; a fine copy. Nabokov decided to translate "Otchaianie" ["Despair"] himself. To his chagrin, "Despair" fared no better than "Camera Obscura" had, and Nabokov blamed his English publisher, Hutchinson, for releasing his sophisticated works under its pulp fiction imprint, John Long. He later referred to the novel as "something more than an essay on the psychology of crime" but admitted: "[it] turns out to be a half-baked thriller - even when I translate it myself!" In 1965, he overhauled this version, rewriting much of the original text. This revamped version was serialized in Playboy at the end of that year, and won the magazine's annual Best Fiction award, which included a $1,000 cash prize. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Japanese School Life Through the Camera

      [ Tokyo, Japan ]: The Society for International Cultural Relations, 1937. First Edition. Spiral bound. Good. Kimura, Ihei (photographer). Kimura, Ihei (photographer). First Edition. 6 leaves of introductory text (printed on front only) + 50 leaves each with a mounted fine half-tone full page photograph, tipped onto thick paper support with roughly 3/8 inch blank margins, and with printed captions beneath. Spiral bound. The whole contained in a custom cloth clamshell box with leather spine labels. Pageblock is 8 3/4 x 12 3/8 inches. Text is in English, French and German. Ex-library, with front pasteboard cover detached lacking portion that would have engaged the spiral binding, and with significant chipping and loss to front illustration around the edges as well as old penned library markings. Rear pasteboard cover still attached to spiral metal binding, but with significant wear to the edges. Internally, the textblock is lightly foxed for the first few pages, with some library markings. The photographs are generally in fine shape, mounted with a blank "safety margin" which in this case was a wise choice. The foreedge has been impacted in a number of places causing short tears, creasing, and in a few cases very minor chips to the thick paper support. The tipped on images have escaped any significant damage, noting one small edge tear. Overall a poorly designed production prone to damage from the day it was produced. Spiral bound. The fifty photographs by Kimura are quite striking, depicting a wide range of Japanese School Life. The images cover Kindergarden, Primary school, High school (mostly girls) and technical and commercial school (mostly boys and men) Later images are of higher level schooling, including University, and even school for the deaf and dumb. Everything from gymnastics to dance, classroom scenes to young women preparing tea, to odder images like a group of mostly naked young boys standing around a UV lightsource (they are all wearing eye protection). By the nature of the fifty image limit, it is at best a survey of what the Japanese Cultural Relations people wished the world to see of their school system at the time - and for which it is most useful. This copy with a sticker inside the front cover noting "with compliments of Kokusai Bunka Shinkokai (The Society for International Cultural Relations). An interesting external view into pre-WWII Japan. Photographer "Ihei Kimura (12 December 1901 - 31 May 1974) was one of the most celebrated Japanese photographers of the twentieth century, particularly known for his portrayal of Tokyo and Akita Prefecture. Born on 12 December 1901 in Shitaya-ku (now Tait -ku), Tokyo, Kimura started taking photographs when very young but his interest intensified when he was around 20 and living in Tainan, Taiwan, where he was working for a sugar wholesaler. He opened a photographic studio in Nippori, Tokyo in 1924. In 1930, he joined the advertising section of the soap and cosmetics company Ka , concentrating on informal photographs made with his Leica camera. In 1933, he joined Y nosuke Natori and others in forming the group Nippon K b ("Japan workshop"), which emphasized "realism" in photography using 35mm cameras; but this rapidly broke up and Kimura formed an alternative group, Ch K b ("central workshop") with Nobuo Ina and others."

        Folklore of Capitalism

      1937 - ARNOLD, Thurman. The Folklore of Capitalism. New Haven and London: Yale University Press and Humphrey Milford, Oxford University Press, 1937. Octavo, original red cloth gilt, original dust jacket. $1500.Scarce first edition of Arnold's "exciting and stimulating" case for a revitalized American economic and political "creed," the copy of New Deal economist Alan R. Sweezy.In 1930, Arnold joined the legal faculty at Yale, where he "wrote two influential books, The Symbols of Government (1935) and The Folklore of Capitalism (1937), which catapulted him to the forefront of the national intellectual arena. In Symbols, Arnold argued that laws were not collections of immutable truths but rather mental representations of symbolic thinking. Arnold refashioned that argument and carried it a step further in Folklore, wherein he asserted that social progress was possible only through a pragmatic (rather than experimental) approach to government. Reassuring the nervous brokers on Wall Street that his was essentially a conservative diagnosis of America's economic and social ills were Arnold's assurances that there was no reason to root out capitalism; what civilization needed was fresh folklore for the common man and new vitalized myths." Shortly after Folklore's publication Arnold was appointed assistant Attorney General. "Many historians and commentators have referred to Arnold's tenure at Justice as the most effective of antitrust enforcement in U.S. history" (ANB). "Every reader will find it exciting and stimulating". No student of the theory of government can afford to ignore its novel approach to fundamental problems" (LQR 54:603). NYU, 931. Ownership signature of economist Alan R. Sweezy, who in the 1930s helped establish Social Security and later worked at the Federal Reserve Board. Publisher's reply card laid in.Book fine with spine gilt bright. Original dust jacket with mild toning to spine and light edge-wear.

Octavo, original green cloth, original dust jacket. $4200.First edition of the most ambitious and successful of Woolf's later novels.Woolf struggled for four years with this novel, hoping to incorporate into a fictional form deep and meaningful commentary on the politics of the English middle class.

When The Years was finally published audiences responded eagerly, making her truly wealthy for the first time in her life.

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

      [Mobile, AL: Press of Heiter-Starke Printing Co, 1937]. First Edition. 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.

        Spanish Testament

      The First UK Printing published by Gollancz in 1937. The BOOK is in Very Good+ condition. Pushing to the spine ends. A little rubbing in places to the lower board edges. Gilt titling slightly dulled. Toning and spotting to the text-block and page edges in places, More-so to the prelims. Previous owner's bookplate to the front paste-down (which is obscured by the dustjacket front flap). Free from inscriptions and erasures. The scarce paper WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good+ condition. Edge-wear to the spine ends with a little loss. Toning to the spine, folds and upper edges. Some stains to the spine. 4cm closed tear to the lower rear edge. Correct price of 10/6 net to the spine. The wrapper still presents well in the removable Brodart archival cover. In Spanish Testament, Arthur Koestler describes his experiences during the Spanish Civil War. Part II of the book was subsequently published on its own, with minor modifications, under the title 'Dialogue with Death' (see below). Koestler made three trips to Spain during the civil war; the third time he was captured, sentenced to death and imprisoned by the Nationalist forces of General Franco. Koestler was at that time working on behalf of the Comintern and as an agent of the Loyalist Government's official news agency, using for cover accreditation to the British daily News Chronicle. The book was published in London by Victor Gollancz Ltd. The 'Contents' of the book is in two parts: Part I describes the context in which he was captured, divided into IX chapters, each with its own title. Part II, titled 'Dialogue with Death', describes Koestler's prison experiences under sentence of death. This part was written in the late autumn of 1937 immediately after his release from prison, when the events were still vivid. In the second volume of his autobiography 'The Invisible Writing', written by Koestler fifteen years later, the following footnote appears: 'In all foreign editions, including the American, Dialogue with Death appeared as a self-contained book. In the original English edition, however (Gollancz and Left Book Club, 1937), it formed the second part of Spanish Testament the first part of which consisted of the earlier propaganda book on Spain that I had written for Muenzenberg. Spanish Testament is (and shall remain) out of print; 'Dialogue with Death' has been reissued in England under that title, in the form in which it was originally written'. Very scarce with such attributes. Ashtonrarebooks welcomes direct contact.

        Photo Album]: Photo Strips Recording Baby's First Years Beginning in 1935

      1937 - Oblong octavo measuring 7" x 10". String-tied brown leather over paper boards with "Photographs" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains 85 sepia-toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs, many of which are printed as photo strips, measuring between 1.5" x 1.5" and 4" x 6", with some captions. Album is very good with tiny chips and edgewear with near fine photographs.A collection of photographs documenting the first two years of a child's life beginning at six weeks in 1935. Roughly half of the photos are printed as photo strips and are mounted in the album in their completed form. Many of the other photos are small format prints as well as images that have been separated from their original strips. The photos show the newborn throughout the years of 1935 to 1937, when he is listed as 2 1/2 years old. Throughout the album he is held and pampered by family and friends as he grows into a little boy. The fact that his early years were heavily documented in photo strip prints is unusual as is the volume of this style of prints collected into a single album, especially as the technology and popularity of the strips was relatively new.The first time a photo booth machine was introduced to the public was at the Paris World's fair in 1889. Although it was a success, the concept wouldn't take widespread popularity until 1925 with the invention of the curtain-closed booth we know today by Russian immigrant Anatol Josepho. It was set up on Broadway in New York City and in the first six months saw around 280,000 visitors. A March 1927 headline of The New York Times read: "Slot Photo Device Brings $1,000,000 to Young Inventor." These photos represent the first decade of modern photo strip prints.An interesting accumulation of early photo strip prints which have been collected in a large quantity in a single album.
