        The Road To Oxiana.

      London: Macmillan and Co 1937. [Travel literature] FIRST EDITION. Octavo, pp.341; [2], advertisements. Illustrated with maps and photographs. Bound in publisher's royal blue cloth, with gilt titles to spine, pictorial dust-wrapper. No inscriptions or price-clipping, jacket a little edgeworn, some toning to spine and upper part of jacket, some light spotting near folds of flaps. Shows well. Byron, who died young in the Second World War, was one of the Brideshead set immortalized by Evelyn Waugh, but he was also the foremost travel writer of his age. He is best known for 'The Road to Oxiana', a description of his journey in 1933-34 through modern Iran and Afghanistan. Paul Fussell recently suggested that what 'Ulysses' is to the novel and what 'The Waste Land' is to poetry, Byron's book is to travel writing.

        Great Contemporaries

      London: Thornton Butterworth Ltd., 1937. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is a British first edition, first printing in a second printing dust jacket. Of note, the second printing occurred just a month after the first printing. The first and second printing dust jackets are nearly identical, differing only in the content of the lower front flap text, which substitutes review blurbs for the first printing jacket's list of individuals about whom Churchill writes in the book. Given the close proximity of the first and second printings, it is plausible to speculate that some of the final first printings may have been issued in second printing jackets. Condition is very good minus in a very good dust jacket. The vivid orange dust jacket remains bright and complete apart from trivial loss to the corners and hinge extremities and a neatly price-clipped lower front flap. Apart from extremities, we note light wear along the top edge with a few miniscule closed tears of no more than .25 inch (.64 cm). Shelf presentation is quite good, the jacket spine notably free of the typical soiling and toning. The dust jacket is protected beneath a removable, archival quality clear cover. The blue cloth binding is square and tight with sharp corners, though with some spine toning and a few small stains to the rear cover. The contents are clean, with no spotting and no previous ownership marks. We note moderate age-toning to the fore and bottom edges, transfer browning to the endpaper rectos from the pastedown glue, and dulling of the blue-stained top edge. Great Contemporaries is Churchill's much-praised collection of insightful essays about 21 leading personalities of the day - including the likes of Lawrence, Shaw, and, most famously, Hitler. Churchill's piece about Hitler can be a shock to the modern ear, as it underscores his ability to write a balanced appraisal of his subject while expressing his earnest desire to avoid the war that he would fight with such ferocious resolve only a few years later. There is a reason this book is still in print today. It was written with what has been called "penetrating evaluation, humor, and understanding." Churchill's balanced and nuanced perspectives are a good model for many of today's more polemic writers. And naturally, in the course of sketching the character of his contemporaries Churchill necessarily reveals some of his own character and perspective. Churchill's portrait of T.E. Lawrence, published just a few years before the Second World War, might well have been written about the author rather than by him: "The impression of the personality of Lawrence remains living and vivid upon the minds of his friends, and the sense of his loss is in no way dimmed among his countrymen. All feel the poorer that he has gone from us. In these days dangers and difficulties gather upon Britain and her Empire, and we are also conscious of a lack of outstanding figures with which to overcome them. Here was a man in whom there existed not only an immense capacity for service, but that touch of genius which everyone recognizes and no one can define." (Great Contemporaries, p.164) While some of the subjects of Churchill's sketches have receded into history, many remain well-known and all remain compellingly drawn. This is as engaging a read today as it was in 1937. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A105.1.a, Woods/ICS A43(a.1), Langworth p.178.

        Despair.

      London: John Long, Limited,, 1937. Translated from the Russian by the author. Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to upper board and spine gilt. With the pictorial dust jacket. Housed in a quarter morocco black solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Endpapers somewhat browned, spine very gently rolled but an excellent copy in the frayed and rubbed dust jacket with loss at the ends of the spine panel and a small triangular chip from the centre of the spine panel. With some neat professional repair to the folds. First English edition, first impression, first issue in the black cloth. Nabokov's second English publication was put out by the small imprint John Long who specialized in unconventional, quirky books, especially mystery, fantasy, and crime novels. They had previously published Nabokov's Camera Obscura with very little success and fared no better with this. Both titles were remaindered in cheaper bindings and copies of either in dust jacket are rare. Of Despair there are thought to be a mere handful. This copy has the ownership signature of Karin de Laval (1894-1973), dated 1937. Laval was a Swedish writer who notably translated works by the likes of Tolstoy and Zola, and also, almost, Nabokov. There are very light pencil annotations to one page which would appear to be explication of idiomatic phrases. We cannot trace any published translation of Nabokov by Laval, but she seems to have considered the attempt. Certainly Laval's was a name known to Nabokov, for in 11 November 1957 he wrote to his Swedish publisher to complain about a poor translation of Pnin: "I must insist that Pnin's translation into Swedish be made by another translator, someone who knows English and can be trusted to respect the text of the original... There is another lady who is supposed to be an honest translator, Mme Karin de Laval. I am not familiar with her work by you might want to ask her to make a sample translation of one chapter or less." The translation by Nils Kjellstrom that was, in the event, published by Wahlstrom & Widstrand in 1958 was so poor that Nabokov had Doubleday arrange for it to be destroyed.

        The Citadel.

      London: Victor Gollancz Ltd,, 1937. Octavo. Original black cloth, spine lettered in gilt. In the dust jacket. Spine ends very slightly bumped, tiny markings to rear cover. A very good copy in the dust jacket, spine panel darkened at head and faded beneath. First edition, first impression, later state dust jacket. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on front free endpaper to fellow author and close friend Dennis Wheatley: "for Dennis Wheatley, whose study of Chaucer has brought him close to Eve. A. J. Cronin." Loosely inserted is an autograph letter from Cronin to Wheatley, dated 1937, which reads: "My Dear Wheatley, many thanks for your kind letter. You are the most generous fellow in the whole of literary London and so more than ever deserve your success. Sincerely, A.J.C". With Wheatley's bookplate on pastedown. In in his memoirs, Wheatley lists The Citadel among the novels he considers the best of the 1920s and 1930s, noting that Cronin is "also [a] good friend of mine". A film adaptation of the novel under the same name was produced in 1938. The present dust jacket, advertising the demand for and sensation of the book, followed a previous dust jacket without these words, and was in use for the second impression of the book. As Victor Gollancz were quick to change their dust jackets to incorporate successful reviews and sales, it is unknown whether this is a supplied dust jacket from the second impression — though it is unlikely as marks on the book and the jacket concur — or whether part of the first impression was issued in the present jacket.

        Waga toso. [i.e. "Mein Kampf"].

      Tokyo, Mikasa Shobo, 1937. 8vo. In the original cardboard binding with gilt lettering to spine, with the original yellow shaved wrappers pasted on to the free end papers. Paper labels with Japanese characters pasted on to pasted down front free end-papers. Lower crown with a few tears and lower corner on front board bumped, otherwise fine and clean. (2), 4, 2, 9, (1), (1)-366, (8) Pp. ¶ Rare first Japanese translation of Hitler's 'Mein Kampf'. The present translation, leaving out Hitler's patronizing sections on the Japanese and Japanese culture and extremist racist views in general, was targeted to make Hitler and his Nazi regime look appealing in the eyes of the Japanese population. Hitler's views in Japan changed greatly from the pubcalition of the original German edition in 1925 to after he became Führer. An investigation of the references to Japans in Mein Kampf reveals Hitler's views on Japan before he came to power. [...] Hitler's image of Japan was mirrored in his image of the Jewish people. Furthermore, he seemingly positive depiction of Japan stood in contradiction to his "Yellow Peril" racial ideology. For Example, he contrasted the "culture-founding Aryan" people with the (merely) "culture-bearing " Japanese race, which occupied a lower place than the Aryan people in his racial hierarchy. He patronizingly wrote that Japanese scientific and technical progress would cease without "Aryan" influence. His top lieutenants recalled that he accepted Japanese gains in the Far East with some resignation, and occasionally warned that eventually Germany would find itself in a showdown with what he called the "yellow race."During the 1930ties Hitler changed his views on the Japanese an eventually he gave them status as "Honorary Aryan", a status granted by the Nazi Bureau of Race Research, or by other Nazi officials, to certain individuals and groups of people who were not generally considered to be biologically part of the Aryan race, according to Nazi standards. The services of those peoples were valuable to the German economy or war effort."Heinrich Himmler was another admirer of Japan and the Japanese. In 1937, he wrote the forward to the book Die Samurai: Ritter Des Reiches in Ehre und Treue (The Samurai: Knights of the Empire in Honor and Loyalty) by Heinz Corazza. Although Corazza was not a member of the SS, the book was written primarily for SS troops. The focus on Japanese samurai (or bushi) loyalty mirrored the ideology of Himmler's SS. The SS are identified with the Japanese samurai-glorification of the Japanese! Accordingly, the moral authority and leadership of the samurai in Japanese society became simultaneously the expression of the role of the SS in German society". (Skya, Japanese Nationalism and the Second World War: Part II)In 1940 the Japanese Foreign ministry printed a classified translation of Mein Kampf for its own officials. The introduction to that book stated that the text included 'praiseworthy parts alongside elements that cannot be accepted by Japan and should therefore be discarded"As with the original German edition, first editions are now a scarcity. Although printed in large numbers, by far the greatest part of them will have been thrown out, burned, and otherwise destroyed, and for years they were not considered proper or decent selling- or collecting-objects.OCLC locates only two copies; Harvard Library and the library of University of Illinois.

        A large cloth-bound album (300 x 385 mm) containing 478 original vintage gelatin silver photographs in three main sequences. One important series comprises approximately 240 images (85 x 135 mm) relating to a journey by air in VH-UZU, the first Cessna imported into Australia (by MacRobertson Miller Aviation Company; it was registered on 2 September 1937)

      - Several photographs that suggest an approximate date clearly show other unique aircraft; one of these is VH-UZX. There were in fact two aircraft registered VH-UZX in Australia. The first one, a DH84 Dragon, crashed at Croydon in the UK on 26 February 1938 before delivery to Australia. The second one, a DH86 Express, was registered in Sydney on 17 July 1940 to W.R. Carpenter & Co. Ltd.; it was impressed by the Commonwealth Government on 27 December 1940. It is clearly in civilian use in this album, making the latter part of 1940 a likely date. Adding weight to this, VH-UZU 'was used on the Adelaide-Whyalla run until late 1939 when it was flown to Perth and used by MacRobertson Miller Airlines on services in Western Australia' ('Airliners' website). There are seven photographs of aeroplanes (mainly VH-UZU), 76 photographs taken on the ground, and 154 from the air. Identifiable or named places range from the Cairns Golf Links, to the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and the Norseman Hotel, but the bulk of the aerial views are interesting landscape features and developed areas in regional Australia. Featured in a few photographs are the passenger and pilot of VH-UZU; on the basis of one of them, we seriously suggest that Captain Horrie Miller himself is the pilot. Another important series includes approximately 85 photographs (generally 65 x 90 mm or the reverse) of mining activities. Some feature large operations, including twelve taken underground, but the best of them depict much more small-scale activity. Captions in pencil on the verso of some images, dated March 1935, identify alluvial diggings and the WMC drill at Yellowdine (approximately 400 kms east of Perth; gold was discovered in the region in 1934). Londonderry, near Coolgardie, is also featured. Conditions depicted are at best basic, at times primitive, and ensure that these images of the early days of the development of a goldfield are nothing less than fascinating. At the beginning of the album there are 88 snapshots (110 x 70 mm or the reverse, printed by 'Q'land Camera Co., Cairns') of tourist attractions in (presumably) the Cairns region.

        [The complete Hornblower:]

      London: Michael Joseph,, 1937–67. The Happy Return (1937); A Ship of the Line (1938); Flying Colours (1938); The Commodore (1945); Lord Hornblower (1946); Mr Midshipman Hornblower (1950); Lieutenant Hornblower (1952); Hornblower and the Atropos (1953); Hornblower in the West Indies (1958); Hornblower and the Hotspur (1962); Hornblower and The Crisis (1967). 11 works, octavo. Recent dark blue morocco, titles and gilt ship decoration to spines, single gilt rule to boards, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Some minor spotting to a few leaves, an excellent set. First editions, first impressions. Forester (real name Cecil Smith) was called to Hollywood to write a pirate film, working under Arthur Hornblower. However, before they had finished the script, another studio released Captain Blood, starring Errol Flynn, and using the same historical incidents that they had counted on. Rather than seeking another position, hounded by the prospect of a paternity suit, Forester jumped aboard a cargo boat bound for home. Another passenger was the photographer Barbara Sutro. In the voyage, he took a one-day cruise around the Gulf of Fonseca in the ship's motor lifeboat, and by the end of the voyage he had a new novel worked out, The Happy Return, with its characters Hornblower, Bush, and Lady Barbara. Hornblower, with all his human indecisiveness and cross-grainedness, was Forester as he wished he had the courage to be, and Forester wrote about Hornblower again and again. This set includes his unfinished novel Hornblower and The Crisis.

        The Lowndes Letters: two autograph letters signed to Robert W. Lowndes.

      Providence, Rhode Island: 20 January and 20 February 1937 - Two autograph letters signed in the hand of H. P. Lovecraft, respectively 6pp and 10pp written in blue ink in a small but clear hand over 3 and 5 leaves (225 x 140 mm), each with the original envelope addressed in Lovecraft's hand to Robert W. Lowndes in Connecticut, respectively franked 20 January and 20 February 1937, and both additionally signed with Lovecraft's name and Rhode Island return address. Housed together in a black morocco album with acetate sleeves for each leaf/envelope, titles silver to spine, Cthulhuan tentacles in green morocco onlay across spine and sides, stars tooled to both sides in silver, gilt marbled endpapers. This in a green cloth slipcase. Together with Crypt of Cthulhu #62 magazine, 1989, octavo with original illustrated wrappers. Usual folds with occasional mild tanning, one envelope with gear and tape repair, but mostly in excellent condition. H. P. Lovecraft (1890-1937), in the months before his death, writes two exceptionally long letters in response to youthful fan-mail from budding writer Robert A. W. Lowndes (1916-1998), replying to Lowndes's request for help in his literary endeavours with extraordinary generosity and thoughtful encouragement. The letters encompass no less than sixteen pages of tight script, with Lovecraft expositing in full his literary tastes, philosophy of life, and theory of horror. He opens his letter with charming self effacement, first of all apologising for "my lousy scrawl - but I have an utter detestation of the typing process - which fatigues and enervates me oppressively. I never use the machine except under compulsion", and describing himself as "just another dub pottering around the edge of aesthetic problems too large for him". He goes on to encourage and guide Lowndes in "your literary diet" which "would seem to be all in the right direction for one as artistically sensitive, & destined for expression on his own book, as you appear to be. I assume that you realise the abysmal inferiority of the pulp-magazine writers (among them titans like Clark Ashton Smith & the late Robert E. Howard stand out as notable exceptions) as compared with real authors of fantasy like Poe, Algernon Blackwood, Arthur Machen, Dunsany, Walter de la Mare, M. R. James & so on - or with the few real authors (H. G. Wells, S. Fowler Wright, W. Olaf Stapleton. I can think of no more!) who have produced 'science fiction' of adult calibre. The less one reads of the magazine junk, the better for his taste & style. If you are not already familiar with the principal classics of fantastic literature I'd be glad to let you have the names of some books which I look upon as almost 'required reading'." This offer of a Lovecraftian reading list was evidently pounced upon in Lowndes's reply, as it is given in full in his February letter, thus (for the record): "And now for those recommendations I spoke of. If you haven't read Blackwood, you have a treat ahead of you - but be sure to choose his best rather than worst products, since he is a curiously & bewilderingly uneven author. Some of his tales are among the finest products of the fantastic imagination - unarguably acute & serious studies of the deep-seated human emotions & processes which produce the illusion of the unreal - yet other things of his almost touch the nadir of bathos, sentimentality, & namby-pamby. Read Incredible Adventures of John Silence - Physician Extraordinary - & get hold of some collection containing the short stories The Willows & The Wendigo. But don't waste time on The Wave, Tongues of Fire, The Extra Day, & The Garden of Survival. If you like I can lend you John Silence, Willows & Wendigo. Machen is another revelation. Get hold of the Knopf edition of The House of Souls, which contains The White People & The Great God Pan. Read also The Hill of Dreams, though it is psychological rather than supernatural. Don't miss The Three Impostors, & The Terror is also worth going through. Almost anything by Machen's is worth readin [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Death on the Nile

      Collins, The Crime Club, London 1937 - 1st impression, 13 x 19cm orange cloth with black stamped titles to the spine, 284pp (4) publisher's advertisements. The spine is a little faded as is often the case with this book. The boards are a little marked mainly on the front which has 3 cup rings and a couple drip marks. The cloth has some rubbing particularly to the corners, two of which are rubbed through, and spine tips which have a little fraying at the head and three splits in the cloth of between 2mm and 1.5cm along the foot. The binding is firm and square. There are a couple of drip marks to the fore edge of the text block but these do not impinge inside the book, which is very clean and bright without spotting or finger marks. The only slight blemishes appear to be a neat ownership name to the front free endpaper, a corner crease and a 3mm closed tear to one page. In all, a very bright survivor of one of Agatha Christies most popular works. If you have any questions or require further images please do not hesitate to ask.
