        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

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.

        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.
