        Great Contemporaries

      G.P. Putnam's Sons, New York 1937 - This 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. About Hitler, Churchill writes: "We cannot tell whether Hitler will be the man who will once again let loose upon the world another war in which civilization will irretrievably succumb, or whether he will go down in history as the man who restored honour and peace of mind to the great Germanic nation and brought it back serene, helpful and strong, to the forefront of the European family circle." The book was written with what has been called "penetrating evaluation, humor, and understanding." Churchill also reveals key glimpses into his own character and perspective. This is as fascinating a read today as it was in 1937. Offered here is the first U.S. edition, first printing, a fine copy in a very good dust jacket. The blue cloth binding is tight, clean and square, with sharp corners and virtually no wear. The contents are clean and tight. No spotting. No inscriptions. The red-stained top edge retains vivid, unfaded color. The correct, first printing dust jacket is unclipped, still bearing the original $4.00 price on the front flap. The jacket is also unfaded, retaining unusually bright blue color, even on the spine. The jacket does suffer some wear. There is chipping at the spine ends, along the bottom edge of the front face, and at the top edge of the rear face, the largest being a 1.75 wide by .5 inch deep triangular loss at the rear face. There is also a faint vertical crease at the spine and wear at the front flap fold. Nonetheless, this is a better than usual copy of a scarce first printing dust jacket. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A105.2.a, Woods/ICS A43(ab.1), Langworth p.179. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      [Belleville, N. J.: Corwin F. Stickney,. 1937]. Small octavo, 12 unnumbered leaves, printed on rectos only,. printed paper wrappers (in imitation of leatherette), stapled.. Touch of tanning to covers, else a fine copy. (#110365). First edition. Limited to 25 copies. Published by Corwin F. Stickney (Belleville, N.J.) in 1937, although no printing information appears anywhere in the book. Twenty-five copies were printed and given free to whoever paid a year's subscription of 25¢ to Stickney's AMATEUR CORRESPONDENT. The book was announced in the Lovecraft Memorial issue of AMATEUR CORRESPONDENT (May / June 1937) on page [29]: "These poems -- all favorites of Lovecraft -- have been combined to form a tribute to this man's poetic genius, which, while not so generally appreciated as his ability for writing prose, was nevertheless greater than that of most living fantasy writers. The size of this volume is four by six inches, and it is printed on an excellent grade of book paper with an attractive leatherette cover. The frontispiece carries Virgil Finlay's portrait of HPL used on this month's cover of the CORRESPONDENT. Every admirer of Lovecraft will undoubtedly want a copy of this petite volume. Obviously, however, it cannot be placed on sale; and it would be much beyond our means to send a copy free of charge to everyone who would write in for one. We therefore believe the only logical method of distribution is to give a free copy with every subscription to the CORRESPONDENT, at the regular rate of twenty-five cents for a year. We reason that practically every one who would be interested in such a booklet reads the CORRESPONDENT and would be willing to obtain a copy in this manner. Inasmuch as a very limited number of copies of the first edition of this volume are being printed, we urge you to reply with your subscription by return mail, mentioning this advertisement to insure your receipt of a copy." Pavlat and Evans, Fanzine Index (1965), p. 53. Joshi I-A-12.

      [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.

        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"
