        Micky Maus Zeitung. - Nummer 16.

      Zürich, Vlg. Bollmann Mühlesteg 8., 1937.. 1. Jahrgang Folio. 8 S. (Seiten 121 bis 129). Mit zahlr. Illustrationen u.a. von Walt Disney. Farbig illustrierte Orig.-Umschläge (fachmännisch restauriert, kleine Einrisse hinterlegt).. Zeitschrift Nr. 16 dieser frühen deutschen "Micky Maus Publikation", übersetzt aus dem Englischen von Martha Ehrat-Bollmann. Der Zürcher Verlag Bollmann erwarb 1936, wohl um über die allgemeine Wirtschaftskrise hiwegzukommen gleichzeitig in Paris beim europäischen Vertreter des Disney-Verlages die Hauptlizenz und in Italien bei Mondadori, der damals die Comics unter dem Namen "Topolino" in italienischer Sprache veröffentlichte, die Unterlizenzen, diese viel zu teuer trugen zum Misserfolg der Reihe "Micky-Maus-Wunderbücher" bei. Der Preis der Bände bis zu sieben Schweizer Franken war während der allgemeinen Krise viel zu hoch und die finanzielle Situation konnte auch mit der halbmonatlichen Herausgabe der vorliegenden Zeitschrift, die zwischen 25 und 30 Rappen zu haben war, nicht verbessert werden. Die Produktion wurde nach dem 18. Heft und dem 7. Buch eingestellt, nachdem der Verlag erfolglos in Deutschland und Österreich nach Partnern gesucht hatte. Im Nazideutschland war die Publikation dieses amerikanischen Imports unerwünscht, obwohl Joseph Goebbels dem Führer 1937 18 Micky-Maus-Filme zu Weihnachten geschenkt haben soll und "sie insgeheim Spass an den Zeichentrickfilmen von Walt Disney hatten" (Laqua, Carsten: Wie Micky unter die Nazis fiel. Rowohlt, 1992). - Gefaltetes Exemplar. Sonst gut erhalten. Resume: First Micky Mouse in German printed in Switzerland. - Folded copy, otherwise in a good condition.

        Typoskript mit eigenh. Widmung und U.

      London, 19. I. 1937.. 11 SS. auf 11 Bll. 4to.. Mit kleinen eh. Korrekturen versehenes Typoskript über die Persönlichkeit und das Werk der vier Jahre zuvor verstorbenen Dichterin Anna de Noailles (geb. 1876): [...] In the summer of 1913, Madame Edmond de Polignac, that great Renaissance Princess of the Arts, gave me a little yellow volume of poems entitled 'Les Vivants et les Morts'. On the cover she has scribbled a line from Anna - 'Schumann, ciel d'Octobre ou volent des cigognes''. An officer on short leave from Egypt has no time for reading. With his eye fixed on the calendar and his ear frightened by the ticking of the clock, he can hardly take in a picture or listen through a Fugue, for 'At my back I always hear | Time's winged chariot hurrying near'. Besides this I will make bold to confess to you that in 1913 I had never heard of the Comtesse Anna de Noailles, as a poet or even as a person. I opened the volume one morning on my return to Egypt as the Austrian Lloyd steamer glided past the jagged mountains of Crete, and did not put it down until, oblivious of time, I had turned the last page [...]". - Roland Storrs war u. a. britischer Gouverneur in Jerusalem, Nordrhodesien und Zypern. "T. E. Lawrence commented in 'The Seven Pillars of Wisdom': 'The first of all of us was Ronald Storrs, Oriental Secretary of the Residency, the most brilliant Englishman in the Near East, and subtly efficient, despite his diversion of energy in love of music and letters, of sculpture, painting, of whatever was beautiful in the world's fruit [...] Storrs was always first, and the great man among us"' (Wikipedia). 1937 veröffentlichte er seine Memoiren. - Kleine Gebrauchsspuren, sonst wohlerhalten.

        Great Contemporaries

      London: Thornton Butterworth Ltd., 1937. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Very good. This is Churchill's much praised collection of insightful essays about 21 leading personalities of the day - including the likes of Lawrence, Shaw, and, most famously, Hitler. Churchill's piece about Hitler can be a shock to the modern ear, underscoring both Churchill's ability to make a balanced appraisal of his subject and his earnest desire to avoid the war that Churchill would fight with such ferocious resolve only a few years after this book was published. (Attention-seeking revisionists who cast Churchill as intent on causing the Second World War should read this, among other things.) About Hitler, Churchill wrote: "We cannot tell whether Hitler will be the man who will once again let loose upon the world another war in which civilization will irretrievably succumb, or whether he will go down in history as the man who restored honour and peace of mind to the great Germanic nation and brought it back serene, helpful and strong, to the forefront of the European family circle." There is a reason this book is still in print today. It was written with what has been called "penetrating evaluation, humor, and understanding." Churchill's balanced and nuanced perspectives are a good model for many of today's more polemic writers. And naturally, in the course of sketching the character of his contemporaries Churchill also reveals key glimpses into his own character and perspective. This is as fascinating a read today as it was in 1937. Here is a truly fine first edition, first printing in a correct first printing dust jacket. Collectors should note that the first printing dust jacket is unique, with changes to the front flap on the second and subsequent printings. The blue cloth binding is excellent - clean, square, and bright with bright gilt, sharp corners, and virtually no wear. The sole exterior flaw is a mild sunning at the spine extremities corresponding to dust jacket losses. The contents are superlative - crisp, clean, bright, and tight. Absolutely no spotting. Even the text block edges are clean and spot-free. A single inked gift inscription dated "Xmas 1937" appears on the front pastedown. Mild transfer browning to the endpapers corresponding to the dust jacket flaps further confirms that this book has spent its life jacketed. The striking orange dust jacket is bright with only minor sunning to the spine. Front flap content confirms this as the correct dust jacket unique to the first printing. The front flap is neatly price-clipped, there is a .75 x .75 inch loss at the bottom of the spine, and some wear and fractional loss at the spine head. The otherwise bright and clean front face bears a one inch ink mark and a .75 inch diameter moisture stain. The nearly perfect rear face is marred only by a faint angled crease. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic Reference: Cohen A105.1.a, Woods/ICS A43(a.1), Langworth p.178.
