        Kriegsmarine officer cadet photograph album

      1937-38. from the shakedown cruise of the SSS Albert Leo Schlageter. Oblong octavo (219 x 289 mm), 24 leaves dark grey mount paper (with "spider's web" tissue guards). Original rough cloth vertically streaked in cream, brown and green, silver-grey string ties, metal and felt Kriegsmarine cap cockade pinned through front cover. Approximately 223 photographs (mainly measuring 86 x 58 mm, virtually all of them corner mounted), largely the work of the compiler but including a number of photographic "cigarette cards" (with captions and numbers printed on the verso) issued for propaganda purposes. A few photographs loose otherwise in excellent condition. A fascinating survival from the pre-war Kriegsmarine: a photograph album kept by a naval cadet serving on the three-masted school ship the SSS Albert Leo Schlageter, one of five such ships built by Blohm & Voss at Hamburg. She was launched on 30 October 1937 - the cadet's portrait is dated 31.10.37, the day after - and her first commander was Fregattenkapitän (later Admiral) Bernhard Rogge, who commanded a merchant raider during the Second World War. The ship took its name from the Freikorps officer Albert Leo Schlageter who was executed by the French in 1923 for conducting sabotage operations in the French-occupied Ruhr; he subsequently became a hero to the Nazis. The Schlageter's sister ship was the Horst Wessel. The cadet is unidentified but a photograph of him in "civvies" (dated by hand as 1936 and naming him as "Otto") on the opening page of the album has a Gottingen photographer's stamp on the verso and the other studio portrait in cadet uniform has the stamp of Genz, Stralsund. The album opens with 8 pages devoted to scenes at the Dänholm naval academy. It is more than likely that "Otto" was training to become a U-Boat officer: "The standard training programme for a typical officer began with basic training which lasted around five months. On arrival at the officer training camp at Dänholm, a two-day physical fitness selection test was held. This was extremely strenuous and around 25 per cent of the intake usually failed... This was followed by sail training lasting four months on a three-masted sailing bark. It was extremely arduous, and fatalities were not unknown" (Gordon Williamson, Wolf Pack: The Story of the U-Boat in World War II, 2005, p. 153). Following this are 24 pages of the Schlageter under sail and including scenes when they make land at Tenerife; life on board ship; games and exercises; atmospheric shots of the sister ship in the moonlight; returning to Dänholm (two small views of Kiel, including the Laboe Naval Memorial); 11 pages under sail again (plus photographs on the rear pastedown) and a visit to Trinidad (4 pages). A remarkable record of life on board the maiden voyage of a renowned German training ship, illustrating the day-to-day life of a naval cadet on her shakedown cruise, when the ship's performance is tested for the first time in open waters. The Albert Leo Schlageter is still in service today, under the name NRP Sagres, with the Portugese navy.

        Orientations.

      8vo. Original dark blue cloth, blocked in gilt; pictorial dust-wrappers, map endpapers; pp. xviii, 624, with frontispiece, 13 plates (including one not listed, perforated to be torn out if found offensive, and a facsimile of a T. E. Lawerence letter), two text illustrations, fold-out map and one map in the text; initial blank inscribed by the author to Bertram Thomas, dated October, 7, 1937. First edition, signed presentation copy. Sir Ronald Henry Amherst Storrs (1881-1955) presents his views on the Middle East gained from his long experience summed up in this book, as a high-ranking British colonial administrator of the region, and Orientalist (he had studied together with Sykes at Cambridge). ' Storrs was intimately involved from the time of the initial approaches to the British government by Abdullah, son of Hussein, the sherif of Mecca, about the likely British attitude to the Arabs exercising their rights in their own country. Abdullah suggested a relationship between Britain and Arabia in which the Arabs would have internal self-rule and Britain would administer foreign relations, an idea Storrs liked and which was compared to the relationship between Afghanistan and Britain ... Storrs was part of the Arab bureau formed in Cairo in December 1915, to which T. E. Lawrence was attached in January 1916, and a shared interest in classics led to a lasting friendship between the two men (Storrs was the principal pallbearer at Lawrence's funeral in 1935). On 10 June 1916 Hussein raised the Arab revolt, but the momentum seemed uncertain and in October 1916 Storrs secured permission to take Lawrence as a companion on a mission to Jiddah to reorganize it. In Seven Pillars of Wisdom Lawrence wrote of Storrs as being the most brilliant Englishman in the Middle East and described his love of music, literature, sculpture, and painting, but also suggested his limitations: "His shadow would have covered our work and British policy in the East like a cloak, had he been able to deny himself the world, and to prepare his mind and body with the sternness of an athlete for a great fight" (Lawrence, 57). Lawrence recorded that on board ship, en route for Jiddah, Storrs discoursed with Aziz al-Masri, an Arab leader, on Wagner and Debussy while sitting in a red leather armchair and that the great man's sweat turned the seat of his trousers a vivid scarlet.' (Oxford DNB). In the 1920s he was in charge of Jerusalem and Judea, defending Zionism, before becoming governor of Cyprus. The book covers a plethora of regions visited during Storr's long career from 1905 to 1932. Provenance: From the library of the explorer and Arabist, and political officer at Shatra during the Iraqi uprising in 1920, Bertram Sidney Thomas (1892-1950). He was the first European to cross the Empty Quarter, and highly admired by T. E. Lawrence.

        Of Mice and Men - A Play in Three Acts - SALESMAN'S DUMMY

      Covici Friede, New York 1937 - RARE SALESMAN'S DUMMY with only 16 pages of printed text, which has numerous variants compared to the final version. A previous owner has highlighted many of the variants lightly in pencil. Book near fine with white lettering on plain brown cloth. Jacket has a few abrasions. It differs from the final version, being a half inch taller, and the rear panel and rear flap of the jacket are blank. Also, the cursive "h." of the jacket designer is fully present on the jacket, whereas it appears half-clipped on the regular edition. Certainly one of the rarest Steinbeck items, and most interesting. It gives a glimpse of Steinbeck's final editing decisions, which were evidently ongoing only weeks before publication. This copy, like the one in Goldstone and Payne, is stamped in red "NOV 5 1937 on the front endpaper; unlike the former, the "5" is not crossed out and replaced with "NOV 23," the actual publication date. The textual pencil notations may indicate this copy is that same one that was offered in the Harry Valentine collection, which was described as having similar notations. The Valentine copy is described in 1980 Bradford Morrow catalogue. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

      New York: Harper and Brothers, , 1937. Quarto. Pictorial paper boards, black cloth backstrip, pictorial endpapers. With the dust jacket. Housed in a full blue morocco solander box. Walt Disney Studio colour and black and white illustrations throughout. Light wear to extremities, rubbing to corners, occasional spotting to pages and a few pages with light creasing, page 64 with a very tidy professionally repaired closed tear, gift inscription to copyright page, in a very bright dust jacket with just a touch of rubbing at corners and ends of spine. A very attractive copy. First edition, first printing. A lavishly inscribed copy by Walt Disney and 51 of the 64 animators who contributed to making of the film. This is almost certainly one of the copies from RKO's first International Sales Convention at the Hotel George V in Paris, inviting 24 potential European distributors (dubbed "The European Foreign Legion"). The agenda included a screening of Snow White, who was Disney's distributor. For this important two-day business meeting, Disney orchestrated the signing of a number of copies of the book version of Snow White to be given as gifts. He signed boldly at the bottom of the title page, instructing the movie's animators and other creative personnel to sign the title page and opposite, as well as on the front free endpaper. This is one of those few, wonderful signed copies, boasting, in addition to Disney's, signatures from 51 of the film's 64 principal creators. The majority of images for Snow White have been attributed to noted artist Gustaf Tenggren, whose signature appears at the top of the front free endpaper (verso).In addition to Tenggren, signees include six others of the nine lead animators, later affectionately called by Disney his "nine old men:" Les Clark, Milt Kahl, Ward Kimball, Eric Larson, Wolfgang "Woolie" Reitherman and Frank Thomas. The remaining autographs include those of character designers, art directors and supervising animators. Other notable signatories include character designers Albert Hurter and Joe Grant; art directors Charles Phillippi, Terrell Stapp, McLaren Stewart, Harold Miles, Ken Anderson, Kendall O'Connor and Hazel Sewelll and supervising animators Ham Luske and Vladimir Tytla.

        The Hobbit Signed by JRR Tolkien

      UK: George Allen & Unwin, 1937. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Very Good. The Hobbit Signed by JRR Tolkien First Edition First Impression George Allen & Unwin 1937. Only 1,500 copies were printed. No inscriptions, no foxing or browning, no loose or damaged pages. Clean and unmarked throughout. In original green cloth covers showings signs of wear. SIGNED by JRR TOLKIEN by way of loosely inserted autograph, written on a bookplate-sized piece of gummed paper inscribed: 'for Mrs Gould'. It was given to Mrs Gould by Tolkien himself after she had helped him with some pension affairs in 1971. She met Tolkien on several occasions and, as thanks for her help, he offered to give her some signed books. Because her work contract prevented her from accepting gratuities, she was unable to accept. Instead, as a consolation, he sent a gum-backed signed slip of paper to her home which she could then attach to one of her own books. The slip of paper has since remained in the envelope it was sent in, alongside a typed letter from Tolkien's secretary - JM Tolhurst - who was the wife of Tolkien's friend Dr Tolhurst. Dr Tolhurst was dining with Tolkien on the evening that the author was taken ill and subsequently died. Further images on request.
