        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.

        Chinese Ceremonial Paper.

      - Chillicothe: Mountain House Press, 1937. 4to, 79, (3)pp., with 50 paper specimens, many folding, plus collotype frontispiece of a furnace for burning sacred paper, 8 collotype illustrations, and two block prints with photos of the blocks that made them. Quarter leather with paper over boards block printed in gilt, backstrip tooled in gilt, slight wear to foot of backstrip and board edges, occasional small stain to top margins, very good. The often extremely fragile specimens are in excellent condition with only occasional tears to the largest folding examples. One of 125 numbered copies signed by Dard Hunter and printed by him on paper handmade in Asia. A remarkable work impossible to recreate or reproduce. The many annotated paper specimens were gathered by Hunter during journeys in China, "as well as in Indo-China, Java, Sumatra, Siam, Malay Peninsula, and other Asiatic countries where the Chinese have emigrated" and include mock-money, both ancient and contemporary, ornamental burning envelopes and trays, and examples of paper gods. Hunter's work is of pivotal importance in the history of American book making. Immersed in the Arts and Crafts movement at Elbert Hubbard's Roycroft company, Hunter went on to found the first handmade paper mill in America and to create arguably the world's first "one man" books: books he printed on paper he had made with a typeface he had designed, cut, and cast himself. In Chillicothe, Ohio, he founded Mountain House Press and for the next 46 years dedicated himself to the study of papermaking, travelling around the world for his research and authoring 20 books on the subject.

      S. John's: Newfoundland Book Publishers, Ltd., 1937. The Book of Newfoundland - Volume One - Copyright 1937. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This book is intended primarily to interest and inform those Newfoundlanders who reside in Newfoundland; and tose other Newfoundlanders, possibly greater in number, who reside in all corners of the earth; and that uncounted number of non-Newfoundlanders who are, for a variety of reasons, already interested in, but perhaps not well informed about, Newfoundland. This publication will carry to the rest of the British Empire and to the world at large a fuller and more authoritative account of the people, institutions and conditions of Newfoundland than has hitherto been available. Near Fine. Edges of binding slightly rubbed. The Book of Newfoundland - Volume Two - Copyright 1937 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "It gives me great pleasure to express my approval and endorsement of this "History of St. John's," which contains so much valuable information regarding our city, and to tender my hearty congratulations to the compiler: a young man of great ability, and prominently identified with the Boy Scout Movement in St. John's. I believe this History will prove of interest to our citizens at home and abroad, and to the people of Newfoundland generally." Andrew Carnell, Mayor. Fine condition. The Book of Newfoundland - Volume Three - Copyright 1967. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Confederation in this volume.

I know of no other case of a Province producing a six-volume work about itself. There have been several sets of books about Canada as a whole, but the Book of Newfoundland concerns itself, in Volumes one and two, solely with the country of Newfoundland and in Volumes three, four, five and six, the Province.

        Life of an American Workman

      Private Printing, New York 1937 - Gus Neubert was likely the only person to ever fire Walter Percy Chrysler (1875-1940). Yet forty years later in his autobiography, Chrysler shares the details of that humiliation in 1895 when he was but 20 years old. Only a few days went by before he was returned to his apprenticeship in the Union Pacific shops in Ellis, Kansas, but he had learned a valuable lesson. Chrysler who went on to become one of the most successful and influential businessmen in U.S. history not only remembered Neubert in his book, but presented his old friend with number 177 of this limited edition of 500 copies. This copy inscribed to Neubert by Chrysler on January 28, of 1938. Deluxe pebbled leather binding with gilt stamped signature of Chrysler on top cover, and smoothed leather on spine with gilt stamped lettering. Top edge is gilded, and others remain un-cut. Leather is rubbed on edges, and spine. There is a one inch square of discoloration on top cover where a label appears to have been removed taking the black dye with it. Recipient has penciled notes on the blank front free end page, and a few in text. Volume remains tight and otherwise clean and intact. Inscription is bright and bold. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Federal Theatre Bulletin / Magazine

      Federal Theatre Project / Works Progress Administration, New York, New York 1937 - Red cloth library binding; Approx. 200 pp.; Profusely illustrated in bw. Seven bulletins of the Federal Theatre Project, a Works Progress Administration New Deal project designed to employ out-of-work artists, writers, and directors while providing art and entertainment for poor families; The FTP became most well known (and in some cases reviled) for their Living Newspaper plays--plays based on newspaper articles, often with a leftist bent; Includes articles about current projects and issues within the FTP, including creating plays, ballets, and the like, costuming, audience reactions, and more; A fascinating look at an early twentieth century government program. Includes several colored lithographs. Contained in this bound volume (labeled Vol. 1 NO. 1-6; Vol. 2 NO. 1-5 on the spine) are the following issues: Vol. 1 No. 1, third printing Feb. 25, 1936; Vol. 1 No. 2 Dec. 1935; Vol. 1 No. 3, no date cover broken off towards spine; Vol. 1 No.4 (beginning the larger format of this publication) March 1936; Vol. 1 No. 5 May 1936 (may be missing front cover if issued); Vol. 1 No. 6 [no date but eighth month, may also be missing front cover if issued). Vol. 2 No. 1 no date, may be missing a front cover if issued; Vol. 2 No. 2 no date but library stamp from Nov. 1936, may be missing front cover if issued; Vol. 2 No. 3 no date but appears to be circa January 1937; Vol. 2 No. 4 may be missing front cover if issued, no date, but library stamp of March 1937; Vol. 2 No.5, no date by library entered date of June 1937, may be missing front cover if issued. It is possible that each cover of these later issues was a colored ithograph, and thus removed by this particular library for archival purposes, but this seems unlikely. However, each of these issue does have a rear cover of thicker, sturdier paper which is usually matched with a similar type of cover material on the front cover, hence the statement that front covers *may be missing* from these issues. The first three issues of Volume 1 are very cheaply produced on what could be guessed to be a mimeograph machine, and the sheets are fragile and exhibit minor loss here and there.Though the masthead on the top of the front page says this is a Bulletin, the rear cover of the later issues state that this is a magazine available for sale at many listed locations. Good (Ex-lib., heavy markings; Some pages worn around edges; Cloth worn at extremities) [Attributes: Soft Cover]
