        Swastika Night by Murray Constantine

      Gollancz, London 1937 - 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 Blue cloth. Near fine in near fine printed dust-jacket (spine panel faded, spine lightly toned) [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

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.

        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.

        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.

One of 1877 surviving copies of the original 2300 run that was bombed during the Blitz, November 1940. Seldom has any book been so widely read and loved as this classic tale. Its hero, Bilbo Baggins, has taken his place among the ranks of the immortals: Alice, Pooh, Toad... 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'.
