        Typed Letter Signed on personal stationery

      Atlanta, 1937. Atlanta, 1937. unbound. 1 page, 11 x 7.25 inches, Atlanta, June 29, 1937. Rare letter signed "Margaret Mitchell Marsh," declining an invitation to a party because it conflicts with her wedding anniversary, in full: "Dear Miss Hall: Sue Myrick forwarded to me your invitation, and John and I appreciate it so very much. I know the party will be lots of fun and I only wish we could come, but Sunday is our wedding anniversary and we have already made plans to spend it with friends. I admit that the temptation to break this engagement is strong, because I liked Milledgeville so much when I was there at the Press meeting. And also, I would love to attend your party as Prissy. (That is the only role my size would warrant. The costume would be cheap, too --just a croker sack and ten cents' worth of shoe polish. We do appreciate your invitation so much, and I shall look forward to Sue's description of the party." Two horizontal folds and slight foxing; very good condition.

Hughes, Huxley, Gropius, Michaux, Masters, Reyes, Heidegger, Maritain, Benda, Mistral, Gide, Breton, Eluard, Berdayev, Malraux, Jimenez, Steinbeck, Amado, G. Greene, J. Stafford, Eliot, Camus, Koestler, Shaw, et al. Significant attention was paid to contemporary writing and film, and to understanding movements, including Surrealism.

        I knew Hitler. The Story of a Nazi who escaped the Blood Purge

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1937. New York: Charles Scribner&#39;s Sons,, 1937. Octavo. Original brown cloth, title in silver to the spine and upper board, swastika in blind across upper board and spine. With the dust jacket. Portrait frontispiece and 18 other plates, full-page map to the text. Endpapers browned, text lightly toned, otherwise a very good copy in the fragile and uncommon jacket, sunned at the spine and with chips head and tail, some chips and splits to both panels and the folds, but largely complete, textually and pictorially. First edition. An insider&#39;s view of the rise of Hitler. Over the years Ludecke&#39;s veracity has been questioned, Orlow advising in his 1969 History of the Rise of the Nazi Party that it should be used only with "extreme caution" (p.323). However, in view of the importance of I knew Hitler as one of the very few examples of Nazi "defector literature", Roland V. Layton carried out a "systematic check of its contents against independent information" ("Kurt Ludecke and I knew Hitler: An Evaluation", in Central European History, XII, 4, pp.372-86), concluding that " &#133; there is much that is true in it. Ludecke clearly moved in the highest circles of Nazidom. He was, the documents show, often where he said he was, doing the things he claims to have been doing in his book. At the same time, it can hardly be denied that much is exaggerated. We may adduce in closing the observations of von Ranke: "Reading is both the easiest and the most difficult thing. To grasp the opinion of the author, where he tells the truth, that is the most demanding skill [our translation]". Ludecke&#39;s memoir is important enough, one must say, for us to make the effort".

      Walt Disney Enterprises. USA. 1937. Walt Disney Enterprises. USA. 1937. ORIGINAL HAND COLOURED IMAGE ON CELLULOID. Image is 6.6 x 4.5 inches. Mounted glazed and framed to give a full size of 13.1 x 10.8 inches. A rare original hand-painted sheet of Celluloid from Disney&#39;s first animated feature film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, showing Bashful. This cell was actually used in the filming process and is an original studio illustration. The image is mounted over a blue background with silver stars and with the character&#39;s name in black below the image. The black lettering is a little lost on the dark background but still readable. The colour image is in fine and bright condition, the colours still vibrant. The film was issued in 1937 but not many cells were released for commercial purposes over the following decades. This is one of a number that Disney released for sale during the 1970&#39;s. A label from the Disney offices states that this painting on celluloid was actually used in the filming and that only a very limited number have been placed on the market. The image is glazed using 99% UV protection Tru Vue Museum Glass. Fine condition.

        THE LATE GEORGE APLEY: A Novel in the Form of a Memoir.

      Little, Brown and Co.,, Boston: 1937 - First edition of his Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. INSCRIBED, "For Henry T. Brown Jr with kindest regards, John P. Marquand." Also includes two typed letters to Brown signed by Marquand: one saying he can send the books, and one apologizing for getting his name wrong. Brown, a famous book collector, always went by H. Tatnall Brown. The letters are tipped to the endpaper and verso of half-title page (across from title page). First printing, with "Lovely Pearl" on the first line of page 19, as we think it is in all first printings (changed to "Pretty Pearl" in later printings, as outlined in the current edition of our Collected Books). Faint vertical lines on some pages, as usual for this title, otherwise very good to fine in dust jacket with small professional repair at top of spine and to a few tiny chips. A very nice copy of an unaccountably scarce book, and particularly so with what would appear to be an early inscription, as both letters are dated in April 1939.

      Hodder & Stoughton , 1937. Hodder & Stoughton , 1937. First edition. Original blue cloth with black lettering in pictorial dustwrapper. A fine copy in a fine dustwrapper, which just shows minor wear to the corners at the head of the spine, but is exceptionally bright and crisp. Eric Ambler is widely regarded (with Somerset Maugham and Graham Greene) as a principal pioneer of politically sophisticated thrillers. The five books that Ambler wrote between 1936 and 1940, upon which his reputation rests, are novels of complexity and realism, in which he introduced ordinary protagonists who are thrust into political intrigue they are ill prepared to deal with. In the process he paved the way for such writers as Len Deighton and John Le Carre, who described Ambler&#39;s novels as "the well into which everybody had dipped". Uncommon Danger is the author&#39;s second book and, in our experience, is his scarcest as a first edition in dustwrapper. No copies have been offered at auction for the last thirty years, and we can recall only one other copy approaching this condition offered for sale.

        [Original Art]: Black Mother Goose: Eight Murals or Friezes Depicting African-American Children as Characters from Nursery Rhymes

      , [Circa 1937] [Circa 1937]. Eight murals or friezes depicting African-American children as characters from nursery rhymes. Meant to be hung or in a continuous pattern, the mural consists of eight oil paintings on canvas, each of which measures 19" x 82", and if hung together, they would total about 55 feet long. Each canvas is currently gently rolled, with a protective tissue wrapper. There are small cracks in the paint, with no loss and they are overall fine. A remarkable and enigmatic mural illustrating African-American children in themes from various nursery rhymes including the Mother Goose rhymes, (especially from "There was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe"), themes from Alice in Wonderland, Little Black Sambo, and others. Some of the panels are signed and/or dated in 1937 by Marion Mackenzie Heywood, a Philadelphia based artist, of whom we know little. .
