      1937 - WOOLF, Virginia. The Years. London: Hogarth Press, 1937. 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. Her efforts to revise, rewrite, and edit what would become her longest work led her to compare The Years to "a long childbirth." When The Years was finally published audiences responded eagerly, making her truly wealthy for the first time in her life. As is usual with Woolf's books, the jacket design is by her sister, Vanessa Bell. Kirkpatrick A22. Woolmer 423. Bell, 440. Book with slight tape marking to endpapers, light wear to extremities of cloth.

        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.

"In To Have and Have Not, Hemingway for the first time showed an interest in a possible solution of social problems through collective action" (Hart, 327). Basis for the Howard Hawks film co-scripted by Faulkner and featuring Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall.

        Of Time and The River: A Legend of Man's Hunger in His Youth [Signed Presentation by Tom Wolfe's Mother]

      Garden City: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1937. Early Reprint. Hardcover. Very Good +/very good +. A Very Good to Very Good + copy of this relatively early reprint of Thomas Wolfe's second book (some rubbing to the spine ends and board corners, one corner bumped, some flaking to the lower spine's gilt bands), in a Very Good + dust jacket (modest rubbing to the edges, a small chip to the rear panel's upper right, a few other tiny edge chips and tiny edge tears, small tape repair to the front panel's verso), SIGNED AND DATED BY TOM WOLFE'S MOTHER, JULIA WOLFE, on the front free endpaper and there very nicely inscribed by her as follows: "To Mr. _____ Rhodes, [decoratively underscored] / I hope some time / to meet & know more / about you though I / don't feel you are a / stranger since you / express your great love / for my sons books. Sincerely, // Julia E. Wolfe. / Tom's mother. // My age 84 years // Feb. 16, 1943. [her 83rd Birthday]". To the left of her signature and age the signature is dated and located by Julia E. Wolfe as follows: "May 4 [decoration] / 1943. / Home - / Asheville N.C." While copies of Wolfe's brother Fred and or his sister Mabel are not difficult to find, copies of his book's signed by his mother are quite a bit scarcer. Furthermore, in our opinion, given Wolfe's close relationship to his mother copies of his works signed by his mother are second in significance only to copies signed by Thomas Wolfe himself. As noted in NCpedia: "Julia Wolfe became the fictional Eliza Gant, a small, compact, and persevering woman, determined to keep her family together and manage her boardinghouse in spite of marital discord and tragedies such as the deaths of Grover and Ben. An able talker with a remarkable memory, she provided her son with much raw material for his novels and short stories. Her talents in business, not only in running the boardinghouse but also in real estate purchases and sales, led to the family's relative affluence; thus Thomas was able to attend a private preparatory school and The University of North Carolina. ... As her son's books became famous, she in turn became noted as the real-life matriarch of the fictional Gants. From the early 1930s onward, her boardinghouse drew literary pilgrims to Asheville. ... A close bond existed between Mrs. Wolfe and her son Thomas from childhood until his death, and some commentators have traced similar traits of character, such as a prodigious memory, ambition, verbal power, and determination. Their correspondence, which spanned thirty years, illumines one of the most moving mother-son relationships in American literary history." A nice copy of Thomas Wolfe's second book in a condition nicer than we usually see, SIGNED, INSCRIBED, PLACED AND DATED BY THE MOST IMPORTANT PERSON IN THOMAS WOLFE'S LIFE.
