        The Late George Apley

      Boston: Little, Brown, 1937 - First Edition; this copy has ÒLovely Pearl Ó on page 19; there are variants (states) of this within the first printing, but as a point it is of dubious or no significance. Often erroneously referred to as an Òissue,Ó this term would indicate that one saw publication before the other. The bibliographical terms Òedition,Ó Òprinting,Ó ÒissueÓ and ÒstateÓ are precise terms, not synonymous and not interchangeable, although they are often erroneously treated as such. Along with at least one C.S. Forester Hornblower title printed at the same time, this bookÕs paper exhibits longitudinal oil marks from the printing press. We have never seen a copy of either novel that lacks these, although there is some variation among copies in their extent and location. Near fine in a dust jacket with very minor soiling and wear. Inscribed by the author, ÒInscribed for Mary Hemingway Field. John P. Marquand, October 15, 1945.Ó While signed or inscribed copies of this title are not unknown, they are uncommon. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 1938, preceded by Gone With The Wind and followed by The Yearling. Ronald Colman played the title role in the 1947 film.

        To Have and Have Not

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1937. First edition. Octavo, original black cloth. Fine in an excellent price-clipped dust jacket with some wear to the spine crown. To Have and Have Not was Hemingway's first since A Farewell to Arms was published eight years earlier, follows the life and adventures of Harry Morgan from rum-running to revolution. Brimming with criticism directed at American capitalism and the bureaucracy of the Roosevelt administration, the novel explores social circumstances and situations in Key West, "that paradise of the 'haves' and purgatory of the 'have nots." "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.

      Decembre 1937, Paris - FINE book. IN FRENCH. SUPERB copy of the scarce French language edition, which preceded the English language printing. Folio, 128pp. The 1988 Abrams book titled "VERVE" states the covers were done under Matisse's direct supervision. It quotes a letter from Matisse to Teriade imploring he be notified of any problem in printing his covers. The 4 lithos collectively titled "LES QUATRE ELEMENTS". Leger's "L'eau", Miro's "L'air", Rattner's "LE FER" & Bore's "LE TERRE". Also writings of Gide, Lorca, Dos Passos & Malraux. Photos by Bresson, Man Ray, Brassai. Cover colors bright as new. All 3 text block edges pristine, as are all pages, whether text or plates. Each page was carefully inspected for any aging, soiling, foxing, or any other discoloration or stain. A tipped in subscription and pricing slip, also in French, is inside the front cover. This info in the English language printing was on the title page. Print runs seldom exceeded 2000 and likely WWII destroyed many of the French language copies. The original binding glue, just inside both covers, had cracked a bit. Van Huizen Bookbinding, St Catherines, ON, Canada, touched this up and also ran a strip of Japanese tissue paper along the spine. The tissue paper lightened the spine color just a bit. This color difference is accurately shown in the one photo. FINE wraps. "VERY FINE", "AS NEW" text & lithos. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Log of the Cruise of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in the Gulf of Mexico. 29 April - 11 May, 1931

      Washingon: The White House, 1937 - First Edition. 35 mimeographed leaves, printed on rectos only, glued into later plain wrappers. Fine in a custom quarter morocco slipcase. Presentation copy; inscribed by F.D.R., "For William Simmons from Franklin D. Roosevelt." The recipient was a White House communications director assigned to the cruise. Reportedly only 10 or 12 copies were issued, and, given its fragile and ephemeral nature, it is doubtful that many survived. The presidential yacht cruised between Port Aransas (near Corpus Christi) to New Orleans, escorted by naval vessels; most of the rest of the trip was by train, and included some political events. Aside from fishing, F.D.R. did conduct some official business, including addressing a condolence note on the loss of the Hindenburg to Chancellor Hitler.

The paper offered here is the result of a survey and observations made by Bohm while a training official for the U.S. Olympic team during the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, having the U.S. athletes fill out forms and questionnaires regarding their diets and exercises. Provenance: the Library of Congress via the U.S. Copyright Office. The Copyright Office received this copy of Bohm's paper, stamping it with a receipt date of March 8, 1937; it pencil on the back of the title it is noted that the paper was "trans. from Copyright" and received by the Library on October 5, 1938. Condition: overall in Very Good condition; the title has a few snags and chips and is dusted; there is also a "Surplus-1 Library of Congress Duplicate" stamp on the title/cover page. Probably a unique copy of a rare work--only one copy of some sort located via WolrdCat/OCLC at Washington State University--significant in the history of sports medicine. $950.

        Scrapbook Documenting Three Years in the Life of Don Gutteridge, the Third Baseman for the St. Louis Cardinals Gas House Gang

      St. Louis, 1937. Scrapbook. Very Good. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Most of the items have been mounted to the pages with photo corners or glue. There are about twenty pages at the rear of the scrapbook where items have been laid in but not mounted. The original St. Louis Cardinals letter forwarding Gutteridge's first minor league contract is laid in the back of the album as are approximately twenty publicity and wire service photos of Gutteridge when he played, coached, or managed for the St. Louis Browns, the Sacremento Salons, the Colorado Springs Sky Sox, and the Chicago White Sox. The red leather album with gilt lettering that reads "Don Gutteridge / St. Louis Cardinal" has some edge wear and discoloration to the rear cover; the binding tie has been replaced. The contents of the album are in nice shape. This is a unique record of a quality baseball player's career with one of the most storied teams of the Depression Era. Gutteridge, the fastest player of his era, began his major league career with the St. Louis Cardinals in 1936 and played for them as their starting third baseman over the next next three and a half years. He also played for the St. Louis Browns, Boston Red Sox, and Pittsburgh PIrates. Although Gutteridge never played for the Cardinals in the World Series, he played in it against them twice, once in 1944 with the Browns and again in 1946 with the Red Sox. Later Gutteridge was a long time coach for Al Lopez with the Chicago White Sox and served as White Sox manager in 1969-1970. This scrapbook, compiled between 1937 and 1939 at the end of the Gas House Gang era, measures 11" x 14" and contains 130 pages filled with hundreds of letters, telegrams, photographs (one at dinner with Branch Rickey), newspaper and magazine clippings (not only about games but also members of the Gas House Gang including Dizzy Dean, Leo Durocher, Joe Medwick, Pepper Martin and his Mudcat Band ), official correspondence, and other ephemera including transcripts of interviews and speeches, Wheaties endorsement correspondence, fan mail, season passes to Cardinal games at Sportsman's Park and spring training, thank you letters (from a foundation, tobacco company, and the Cardinal's team physician Robert Hyland), an official Cardinals Spring Training Roster, official team menus, a Player's Association membership card, an original pencil portrait, and more.

        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.
