First edition of the carefully researched narrative of 'Britain's worst military defeat since the surrender of Cornwallis's army in 1781 during the American Revolutionary War ... The town of Kut in Mesopotamia, now Iraq, surrendered to the Turkish Army on 29 April 1916. The occupying British-led and mainly Indian Army force had been besieged for four months. 12,000 soldiers were taken into captivity and were to suffer almost as much as their countrymen did in different circumstances under the Japanese nearly thirty years later. There had been 3,776 casualties during the siege, 23,000 men were killed or wounded during the unsuccessful relief attempts and a further 4,000 were to die, subsequently, as prisoners. (online summary of Patrick Crowley's, Kut 1916. Courage and Failure in Iraq, 2009). Lady Neave (1880-1955) had been taken in her early years to Turkey by her father and lived there for 26 years. Her good Turkish connections helped her to gather information on the siege of Kut al-Amara on the banks of the Tigris.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1937 - 1937 Wisden - Original Hardback

      1937. Hi, This lot is an Original 1937 Hardback Wisden . It is in very good condition, the era of 1933 to 1937 were not the best of hardbacks as Wisden swapped materials in 1933, it resulted in poorer quality Wisdens but I am pleased to say that this 1937 is far better than most for the year. The front and spine gilt is excellent for a poor year and the boards are very good, there are a few light marks mainly to the front but still nice boards. The pastedowns are fabulous and very yellow, the hinges are excellent and the internal pages are very clean. Some spotting to the page block else would be a 9. By far superior to many of the same year. Nice photoplate, Hard to find in good condition, this is not too far off excellent.

        Swastika Night by Murray Constantine

      London: Gollancz, 1937. First edition. 1 vols. 8vo. Blue cloth. Near fine in near fine printed dust-jacket (spine panel faded, spine lightly toned). First edition. 1 vols. 8vo. Presentation Copy. Shocking and prescient novel of a world after seven hundred years of Nazi domination, published by Victor Gollancz in July 1937. Murray Constantine was a pseudonym, used also for the 1934 novel Proud Man. The pseudonym was only revealed in the 1980s when feminist scholar Daphne Patai identified the author as novelist Katharine Burdekin, who had been attentive to the meaning of the Nazi ideology to predict in Swastika Night the annihilation of the Jews, the homosexual fetishism in the military, and the utter subjugation of women, who are kept apart as breeding animals. Hitler is revered as a god and the rotten secret at the heart of the Nazi hierarchy is that the birth rate is falling. Inscribed by the author on the flyleaf: "To John Hampson from 'Murray Constantine' July 1937" John Hampson (1901-1955), Hogarth Press author and literary critic, made several visits to Berlin in the 1930s and covered the Reichstag fire for the New English Weekly. "No one would publish Hampson's first novel because of the explicit treatment of its author's homosexuality. His second novel, a study in sister-fixation, was an immediate critical and commercial success. Published by the Hogarth Press, Saturday Night at The Greyhound (1931) went through three impressions in five weeks, rapidly selling 3,000 copies and winning Hampson wide critical praise. The novel was translated into French and reprinted by Penguin in 1937 ... Success brought this striking, tiny man friendships with other homosexual writers such as J. R. Ackerley, William Plomer, John Lehmann, and E. M. Forster" (ODNB). In 1936, Hampson married German actress Therese Gift (who had played Mrs Peachum in Brecht's Threepenny Opera) to provide her with a British passport. Hampson would have been a clear-eyed reader of this novel. Gollancz reprinted it in the Left Book Club in 1940. With a clipped review, almost certainly by Hampson, reading in part "... behind Mr. Constantine's satire there is something like logic. With all the arts except music forbidden, with women reduced to child-bearing animals and segregated from men, and with a new and monstrous religion of the Blood, some such nightmare as here presented might very well come to be. ... A weird story which if read with the attention it deserves it must leave one thinking uncomfortably hard." Copies of Swastika Night in dust-jacket are rare. A presentation copy, even more infrequently seen. A SUPERB ASSOCIATION COPY OF A LANDMARK FEMINIST WORK. Provenance: George Locke (Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, pp. 57-8); for Hampson, see Walter Allen, As I Walked Down New Grub Street (1981), pp. 55-71
