        Photo Album]: 1937 Touring Photo Album of Mexico and Central America

      Mexico and Central America 1937 - Octavo. Black leather spiral photo album measuring 9.5" x 7.5". An assortment of 147 sepia toned photographs measuring 3" x 5" and affixed to stiff black paper. Very good with curling on the boards, rubbing, and tiny tears. Most of the 147 photographs were taken during a trip through Mexico and Central America. Depicted are the sights of Latin America, palm trees, sombreros, mountains, a tented bizarre, and a hike through a rain forest. The tour participants can be seen in fedoras posing with locals and enjoying the atmosphere. One photo shows a group of local children hanging a large lizard upside down, which apparently was extremely hilarious based on their facial expressions, not so much for the reptile. Additionally, there are 21 non-trip related photos and postcards from places in Arkansas and North Carolina toward the rear of the album. An interesting accumulation of trip photographs documenting 1930s Latin America.

        Mes aventures de jeunesse.

      Paris: Payot,, 1937. Octavo. Original pale green printed wrappers, front cover with photographic portrait of Churchill wearing the slouch hat of the South African Light Horse. Short closed-tear at for of front cover, a few slight nicks to extremities of spine. An exemplary copy. First edition in French, 3,500 copies were printed; originally published in the UK in October 1930. Presentation copy from Churchill to his literary agent Emery Reves, inscribed on the front free endpaper: "To I. Revesz from Winston S. Churchill". A superb association copy: Emery Reves (1904-1981) had been instrumental in promoting Churchill's pre-War international profile by the world-wide syndication of many of his prophetic articles during the late 1930s. Churchill biographer Jonathan Rose gives the background to their early association: "[At this time] Churchill was trying to disseminate his dissenting views as widely as possible, with the help of an indispensable agent. Emery Reves was a Hungarian Jew who in 1930 launched the Cooperation Press Service. Based in Berlin, he distributed articles by prominent politicians to publications outside their home countries. Within two years he had about a hundred political writers in his stable… publishing them in 400 newspapers in 70 nations. 'Naturally the organization was rather profitable,' he recalled… On 1 April 1933 Nazi stormtroopers attacked Jewish businesses throughout Germany, and Reves took the night train to Paris, where he opened a new office on the Champs-Eylsees. Reves was keen to recruit Churchill, and Austen Chamberlain set up a meeting on 25 February 1937 in Churchill's London flat at Morpeth Mansions. Having just emerged from his bath, Churchill was as skeptical as he was naked, so Reves handed him a fat folder of Austen's clippings. Promptly telephoning Lord Beaverbrook's office, Churchill was dismayed to learn that 'Chamberlain's articles are much more widely distributed than mine.' In June Churchill and Reves signed a contract, and the latter became the conduit for distributing Churchill's jeremiads against Hitler to Europe, the British Empire and the United States. A senior Foreign Office official urged Reves to stop – for in fact he was enabling Churchill to run around Neville Chamberlain's media blockade, with some assistance from the latter's half-brother. 'He was really in the political doghouse,' Reves remembered. 'Through my service he got on the front pages of the newspapers in twenty-five languages, with up to a fifteen, even twenty million circulation'" (The Literary Churchill: Author, Reader, Actor, Yale 2015, pp. 257-58). Their association blossomed again after the War when Reves negotiated the sale of the US rights for The Second World War, and purchased the international rights himself, selling serialization to twenty-seven newspapers across the globe and securing book rights in eleven European countries. Churchill said of this feat, "I am sure that no one could have done it except Reves, who buzzed around the world for nearly a year making contracts." They subsequently worked closely together on the book itself, Reves having what Martin Gilbert has described as "considerable editorial input". This fine presentation dates from the year of their first meeting, 1937, the French edition appearing in December. Churchill is using the original form of Reves's name - Imre Revesz; in later inscriptions he would use the anglicised version, Emery Reves.

Tolkien's Middle-Earth is a vast mine of treasures and knowledge, its roots delving deep into folklore, mythology and language, and 'The Hobbit' is an ideal introduction to this richly imagined world, which was more fully and complexly realised in 'The Lord of the Rings' and 'The Silmarillion'.

The Falange Española Tradicionalista y de las Juntas de Ofensiva Nacional-Sindicalista was formed in April 1937 by General Franco, when he merged the Traditionalists with the pre-existing Falange Española de las Juntas de Ofensiva Nacional-Sindicalista (or FE de la JONS). The FE de la JONS was itself a merged group, founded in 1934 by the joining of the Falange Española (founded in October 1933) and the Juntas de Ofensiva Nacional-Sindicalista (founded in October 1931). From 1937 forward, the Falange became the sole legal political party in Spain until its dissolution in 1977. As of November 2017, WorldCat locates 6 various holdings of Fe in North American institutions. All appear to be incomplete; no earlier issues from Epoca 2 were found in the United States.

        HOY: Revista Mensual. Portavoz del Comité Regional en Cataluña de los Industrias de la Edificación Madera y Decoración. Vol I, no. 1 (all published?)

      Comité Regional en Cataluña de los Industrias de la Edificación Madera y Decoración, C.N.T - A.I.T., Barcelona 1937 - The unlikeliest of publishing endeavors during the depredations of wartime: an avant-garde, large-format, lavishly illustrated journal of architecture and decorative arts, issued no less under the auspices of an anarchist workers federation. The editors intended to usher in a new era of progressivism and modernism following the defeat of the fascist rebels in the July Barcelona uprising of 1936 (".aquel magnifico y revolucionario 19 de julio, tan digno y decisivo; no solo como fin de etapa, sino tambien como prologo de una etapa nueva repleta de posibilidades, consequidas ya en parte ye en parte perfiladas, no siempre malogradas."), and the magazine fashioned itself upon the model of such avant-garde revolutionary journals as the Soviet Union's USSR in Construction and the American Labor Defender, with bold photo-montage layouts and modernist typography. The timing was not propitious. By December 1937 the Republic was mired in an increasingly hopeless civil war, and the glorious New Era that had seemed so certain in July of 1936 was now a rapidly fading hope. The magazine appears to have lasted for only a single issue before folding; today it is extremely rare, with no examples in North America and only two physical locations noted in European institutions via COPAC and OCLC (Biblioteca Nacional and Bibliotheque Nanterre). BNE attributes editorship to the avant-garde graphic artist Darío Carmona de la Puente, but this information does not appear to derive from the publication itself, which makes no editorial attribution. Large folio (49cm). Staple-bound pictorial paper wrappers; 23pp; illus. Horizontal fold; partial perforation at bound edge; creasing to corners with marginal soil to wrappers and a few chips to contents; a sound, Good or better example. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        The Road to Wigan Pier.

      London: Victor Gollancz, 1937.. FIRST EDITION. Octavo (22 x 15 cm), pp.viii; 264. With 32 black and white photographic plates. Not including the foreword, which appeared in the first Left Book Club edition. In publisher's blue cloth with yellow titles to spine. With original light yellow dust-jacket with titles to spine and front cover. Some spotting to prelims and edges; heavy tobacco scent. Very slight reading lean. Chipping to jacket corners and head and tail of spine; spine lightly browned. Very good indeed. Orwell's famous sociological analysis of working class life in the bleak industrial heartlands of Northern England prior to the Second World War, commissioned by Victor Gollancz in January 1936. Orwell received a £500 advance (two years' income for him at the time), and researched the book by spending the harsh winter of 1936 living in Barnsley, Sheffield and Wigan; three urban areas of heavy industry producing coal, steel and textiles respectively. The book was chosen by Gollancz for its popular Left Book Club, which issued most of the copies printed (over 44,000) in 1937, making the first Gollancz trade edition of just 2,150 copies very rare, especially in a jacket.
