      [New York?]: Done for Grand, Gordon, The Silver Horn, Garden City, NY: Garden City Publishing Co, 1937 - ALSO INCLUDED ARE 2 DRAWINGS NOT USED: a 7 x 1 1/2 inch pen drawing of a hunting horn, unsigned, and a beautifully executed 11 1/2 x 7 1/2 inch pen and ink drawing for the title page showing a huntsman in partial profile, signed FB, both fine. The identity of "FB" has not been determined. These drawings were done for the Winward House Edition of The Silver Horn, the first trade edition after The Derrydale Press limited edition of 1932. Winward House, owned by the owners of The Derrydale Press, was established in 1933 to provide less expensive and more widely marketed volumes than those issued by Derrydale; The Silver Horn was one of four Derrydale reprints issued under its aegis. Ralph Ludwig Boyer (1879-1952), a well- known illustrator, painter and etcher, illustrated four books for The Derrydale Press between 1936-1939, including Tranquility, and Random Casts. His portraits of Colonel John Weatherford and the other main characters catch superbly the spirit of Gordon Grand's classic text. A FINE SET OF ILLUSTRATIONS First Winward House Edition. Each drawing--a portrait of one of the book's characters--is 9 x 7 inches (excluding margins). The drawings are rendered in ink and gray wash; there are a few light marginal smudges, printer's penciled notes in one margin, away from the image, else fine. Siegel pp. 235-238

        The Case of The Seven of Calvary

      Simon & Schuster, New York 1937 - Very Good in the publisher's full black cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt (still brilliant) and the front board is stamped in blind. Deep red topstain and beige endpapers. 312pps. (For purposes of presentation, a beautiful facsimile dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has been added to this item.) There is a bit of wear at the tips and the spine-ends including a 1/8" nick in the cloth at the heel of the spine. Also, there is a small bump at the fore-edge of five or six pages. Internally, there is a previous owner's gift inscription and name-stamp near the top of the ffep. Otherwise clean and bright with a sound and square binding. SIGNED by the author -- without further inscription -- on the ffep. A nice copy of this Inner Sanctum Mystery -- scarce signed. The author's first novel and a high-spot in the mystery genre. "We pass this book along to innumerable readers who, we believe, are going to find it as brilliant and baffling as we did. Some of the ingredients are: (1) A cast of characters in which the author has marked those who are not guilty. (2) A chapter-before-the-last in which the author sums up his case, restates the essential clues, and gives the actual page numbers on which they appear. (3) The symbol of The Seven of Calvary, left at the scene of each murder, that leads to a dead end every time. (4) A scholar who solves the murders without leaving the quiet of his library. The first death takes place on the campus of a large American university. There is, seemingly, no motive for it. There is no clue of any kind except the rough drawing of The Seven of Calvary left near the body. And from this very lack of motive, this apparently patternless murder, Dr. Ashwin gets the first intimation of the pieces of the puzzle -- an intimation that crystallizes with the second murder into a perfect whole. Mr. Boucher presents his puzzle with skill; he salts it with a lusty sense of humor; he has a lot of fun with his characters. In short, we hope you enjoy it." -- Inner Sanctum Mysteries.

        To Have and Have Not

      NY: Scribner. 1937. A novel about a reluctant Caribbean gun runner, which brought the author criticism for its heavy-handed attempt to infuse the story with the fashionable left wing politics of the time. As his first novel since A Farewell to Arms, any book would have been found wanting; and even though we do not look to Hemingway's novels for piercing political analysis, the sympathies expressed in this book are exactly those that drove him to Spain during the Spanish Civil War in futile support of the Spanish Republic -- one of the defining events of Hemingway's life. Basis for the 1944 movie with Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall and a screenplay by William Faulkner. Very near fine with just a few unobtrusive smudges to the boards and a faint shadow on the flyleaf; in a very near fine dust jacket with a touch of rubbing to the spine and spine folds. First Edition. Hardcover.

        Addresses of the President of the United States on the Occasion of His Visit to South America, November & December 1936

      [Washington, D.C.]: United States Printing Office, 1937. First edition, one of 75 (but probably one of only 7 in this binding). 4to. 97, [3] pp. Bound in full light bown pigskin, with metallic plaque of the Seal of the United States inset into the upper cover, now with a fine patina, pigskin doublures and silk endpapers. Fine. In quarter leather and marbled boards pull off slipcase . A sumptously produced White House Christmas book, commemorating FDR's nearly month-long diplomatic mission to promote "hemispheric solidarity" with South America. The book was issued in an uncertain, though undoubtedly strictly limited, number, with two issues--in full pigskin, as seen here, and half pigskin and marbled boards. The colophon calls for 75 copies, with the more desirable full pigskin binding scheduled to run to 50 copies for distribution to South American dignitaries and the half-leather isssue of a planned 25 copies reserved for FDR's personal use and distribution at the holidays. Documents at the Library at Hyde Park suggest that the full edition of 75 copies was not achieved (cf. Horowitz, "Carmichael Collection") and that as few as seven were ever bound in full pigskin. This copy, one of the "foreign" issues, was nonetheless INSCRIBED to FDR's Sectretary of the Treasury Henry Morgenthau on a specially printed leaf: "To the Honorable Henry Morgenthau, Jr Secretary of the Treasury of the United States" (printed) and inscribed below in the President's hand, "From his old friend/ Franklin D. Roosevelt"

      London:: Putnam. (1937). First edition, preceding the American edition written under the name Isak Dinesen. An account of her years spent on a coffee farm in Kenya and of the local animals and the native peoples. Written in Danish but translated and published in England, in this edition, before either the Danish or American editions. Bookplate on front pastedown, otherwise fine in full red cloth; in price-clipped, assumed second-issue dust jacket, with light aging and rubbing on edges, and spine just a bit darkened. The jacket has 5 reviews on front flap and three ads--for "Meek Heritage," "Goodbye West Country" and "Complete Book of Ballets"--on back cover. We were not aware there were two jackets when we bought this copy (obviously) but have now seen jackets without reviews on front flap and with ads for "My Scottish ---," "Goodbye West Country," and "Under Five Eagles," on back panel. Still, a very scarce book in jacket.

      Doubleday, Doran and Co., The Crime Club Garden City, New York 1937 - First Edition. Presumed Artzybasheff dustjacket art. Rare title by this Native American mystery author of Choctaw descent.

The mystery is set on a Mexican ranch with "a strange group that had also sought refuge from the storm. These varied from two American underworld characters to a frightened Texas schoolteacher; a manufacturer of religious articles to a notorious soldier of fortune. Two other murders were to occur before Rennert was able to penetrate the secret of the floor, the broken phonograph needle, and the small, cotton-stuffed box". Very Good plus, top spine end a but rubbed, fore-edge pages soiled, in Very Good dustjacket, square inch of torn jacket at lower front panel mended in place with archival tape at verso, top spine end with nickel sized chip, some modest soiling and smudges to rear panel.

        Trade Catalogue] 1937 Decorated Tin Boxes. Hudson Scott & Sons Limited. Carlisle, England

      1937 - A beautiful, and colorful, catalog of tin boxes. 47 pp. The tins are decorated in a multitude of styles, with Asian (Japanese, Chinese, Indian) influences particularly strong, but also Regency, deco-ish and other styles popular at the time evident in some tins. The leaves are printed only on the recto sides. Some of the tin images are mounted, others are printed directly onto the leaf. The mounted tins appear to be of very thin tin and thus particularly authentic representations of the actual tins. Below the illustrations are dimensional, price and other descriptive text. A scarce trade catalog, with none located on OCLC. Light soiling to the wraps. The mounted tins have a tendency now to curl at the base. Bound with ribbon and a short string attached to the top. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
