        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"

Front panel is loosened partially from the spine and is thus in somewhat precarious condition. One small spot to front wrapper panel, which has bled through to the verso.

        Night Over Mexico

      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. Downing was raised in Oklahoma but spent considerable time in Mexico and provided travel tours between Mexico and the U.S. during the 1930's. This is the author's most highly regarded title and one rarely found in original illustrated jacket. 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, some minor wear, front cover some spotting, fore-edge of rear endpaper trimmed, in Very Good plus dustjacket, few shallow chips and rubbing to spine ends.

      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.

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.

        THE YEARS

      Published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf at The Hogarth Press, London 1937 - An Unusually Fine Copy of a Major Novel. 191 x 127 mm (7 1/2 x 5"). 2 p.l., 469 pp. FIRST EDITION. Publisher's light green cloth and printed dust jacket. Kirkpatrick A22a. Very faint uniform darkening to the jacket spine, otherwise AN ESPECIALLY FINE COPY IN A VERY FINE JACKET, virtually fautless inside and out. A major work in the Virginia Woolf canon, and the first novel by her to appear after "The Waves" of 1931, "The Years" is somewhat less experimental in style, making it one of the author's most readable works. It chronicles the lives of a group of siblings, beginning with their childhood in the 1880s and continuing for half a century. One sister becomes a brilliant society hostess, another turns suffragette; one brother becomes a scholar, another a soldier. The resemblance to the author's own large family of siblings is hardly coincidental, so that much of the work reflects the responses of Woolf and her family to rapidly changing times. Reviewing the work when it was first published, Peter Monro Jack in the "New York Times" wrote, "This is . . . lyricism in the form of a novel, with flying buttresses to sustain its airy and often absent-minded inspirations. There is the minimum of substructure. But there is everywhere, on one lovely page after another, . . . writing which reveals a kind of feeling that is more illuminating than a dozen well-made and documented novels. Mrs. Woolf has made, or unmade, her novel in the form of a poem or a piece of music." The dust jacket issued with this volume is even more difficult than usual to find in fine condition, as it is here, because its spine almost always turns rather quickly to an unpleasant brown.
