        The XIth Olympic Games Berlin, 1936: Official Report. In two volumes

      fficial Report. In two volumes, 1937 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A first edition and scarce set of this illustrated Olympic Report for the 1936 games. Very scarce in any condition. This is the important report on the 1936 Olympics. A very limited circulation it was intended for institutions and largely remains there. Despite being a primary source for the 1936 Olympics, the only record of sale we can find over the last 40 years was in 1995 at Christies. As this book was mainly institutionally held, it was often rebound, losing the interesting original binding, which was in any case fragile. Exceptionally it is still present here. It needs a little reinforcing but this is not a serious expense for a book of this value and importance, and we have left it as it is so that any purchaser can oversee their own work to their own satisfaction. There are stamps just to the title pages, these seem to be an institution of some sort, as expected, but they are not clear. First Edition. Illustrated throughout with photographs, some coloured. Contains plans of the layout of the game. Complete in two volumes. The 1936 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the XI Olympiad, was held in Berlin. The citywon the bid to host the Games over Barcelona on April 26, 1931, at the 29th IOC Session in Barcelona (two years before the Nazis came to power). To outdo the Los Angeles games in 1932, the Nazis built a brand new 100,000-seat track and field stadium, 6 gymnasiums, andseveral other smaller arenas. They also installed a closed-circuit television system, radio network that reached 41 countries, and many other forms of expensive high-tech electronic equipment. By allowing only members of the 'Aryan race' to compete for Germany, Hitler further promoted his ideological belief of racial supremacy. At the same time, the party removed signs stating 'Jews not wanted' and similar slogans from the city's main tourist attractions. Condition: In cloth bindings. Externally, a trifle rubbed. Backstrips attached to front boards only. Marks to the boards and spines. Hinges strained. Internally, generally firmly bound apart from the first and last pages of each volume. Foxed to the endpapersbut otherwisegenerally clean. Pp633-7 and the title page of Volume II have been previously reinforced. Stamps to title pages. Crease to the title page of Volume I. Overall: GOOD ONLY with a very good interior. The potential to be very good indeed with a small amount of work, and very very original..

        Den afrikanske Farm. (Out of Africa).

      København (Copenhagen), 1937. Uncut in the orig. blank wrappers w. handwritten title to back. An excellent, very nice, clean, uncut and unopened copy.. Scarce first Danish (Blixen's native language) edition of Karen Blixen's immensely popular work, her second publication, which was first published in English the same year (1937) and is now a world classic. The first Danish edition of "Out of Africa" is translated by Blixen herself into her native language. It appeared after the English edition, but before the American one, and the Danish edition is rarer and more difficult to find in fair condition than both. It appeared in numerous editions within the author's lifetime and was translated into several languages. The legendary Danish writer, Karen Blixen-Finecke (pseudonym: Isak Dinesen) (1885-1962), was a Danish baroness, who married her cousin, the Swedish Baron Bror Blixen-Finecke, in 1914. They soon moved to Africa, where they ran a coffee-farm near Nairobi, and the happiest years of Blixen's life were spent here (she used to say that "Africa made me"). The farm in the Ngong Hills is the centre of this world famous novel. She divorced her husband, who was cheating on her and gave her syphilis, in 1922, and in 1932 she moved back to Denmark after the farm had gone bankrupt and her lover, Denys Finch-Hatton, had died in a plane-crash. She spent the remaining 30 years of her life in Denmark, and died a legendary writer. She greatly influenced writers and cultural personas of the generations to come, and many authors recognize the direct impact she has had on their writings. Several of her novels have been filmatized, most famously "out of Africa" with Meryl Streep and Robert Redford, she was nominated for the Nobel Prize twice, she was elected honorary member of "The American Academy of Arts and Letters" (1957), and her portrait is printed on the Danish 50 kr. notes. She is the absolutely most famous of all modern Danish writers, and the only one of international fame

        Micky Maus Zeitung. - Nummer 11.

      Folio. 8 S. (Seiten 81 bis 89). Mit zahlr. Illustrationen u.a. von Walt Disney. Farbig illustrierte Orig.-Umschläge (fachmännisch restauriert, kleine Einrisse hinterlegt). Zeitschrift Nummer 11 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. Résumé: First Micky Mouse in German printed in Switzerland. - Folded copy, otherwise in a good condition.

The book was issued in an uncertain, though undoubtedly strictly limited, number, with two issues--in full pigskin, as seen here, and half pigskin and marbled boards. The colophon calls for 75 copies, with the more desirable full pigskin binding scheduled to run to 50 copies for distribution to South American dignitaries and the half-leather isssue of a planned 25 copies reserved for FDR's personal use and distribution at the holidays. Documents at the Library at Hyde Park suggest that the full edition of 75 copies was not achieved (cf. Horowitz, "Carmichael Collection") and that as few as seven were ever bound in full pigskin. This copy, one of the "foreign" issues, was nonetheless INSCRIBED to FDR's Sectretary of the Treasury Henry Morgenthau on a specially printed leaf: "To the Honorable Henry Morgenthau, Jr Secretary of the Treasury of the United States" (printed) and inscribed below in the President's hand, "From his old friend/ Franklin D. Roosevelt"

        Typed Letter, signed ("Peggy Mitchell Marsh"), to George Cukor, thanking him for a gift of perfume, and discussing the reception of a performance by Tallulah Bankhead

      Atlanta Georgia may 12 1937 Atlanta, Georgia, may 12, 1937. 4to. One page, on personal letterhead. light creasing and toning . Mitchell thanks Cukor for the gift of Mary Chess perfumes, and especially the "mimosa": "I had tried someone's brand of mimosa many years ago, but it was heavy enough to be used as an anesthetic for a major operation. This brand is so sweet and faint and the lovliest part about it is that it reminds me of old mimosa groves far in the back country on a still, hot day with the bees demented in the blossoms." She then goes on to discuss Tallulah Bankhead's recent performance in Atlanta, which she unfortunately missed: 'Of course I was eager to go, but the show opened the night after the Pulitzer Award arrived. The Vice President of The Macmillan Company was in town and he gave me a party that night. I hoped to see her the following night, but the house was so filled with friends and excitement that I could not go to the theatre. I was very disappointed for everyone was charmed with her. So few people here had liked her in her films, and I am afraid many of them went to see her play determined not to like it. But everyone was most enthusiastic about her and the phone rang all day long as people told me how charming she was- " Mitchell won the Pulitzer Prize in 1937 for her novel GONE WITH THE WIND; and George Cukor was David Selznick's first choice as director of the film

      Paris: Philippe Gonin 1937 & 1943 i.e. 1950. Paris: Philippe Gonin, 1937 & 1943 [i.e. 1950].. Two volumes, plus portfolio. Quarto. Loose signatures laid into printed wrappers. Some modest foxing early and late (largely to the endleaves) of the second text volume, light foxing to verso of one of the proof plates in the portfolio, otherwise about fine in lightly soiled and corner worn slipcases and vellum-backed chemises. First edition. The text volumes were printed in editions of 750 copies on rag paper watermarked with a special device of a seated nude by Maillol. Each volume is illustrated with 61 beautiful woodcuts, including illustrated initial letters, executed after Maillol's drawings. This is one of the preferred sets, accompanied by the separate portfolio including two extra suites of the woodcuts, each suite laid into special printed pictorial wrappers, one suite printed in black and one in sanguine, each plate with a paraph 'M' stamped in the margin, along with ten early proof states of woodcuts printed in sanguine on China paper contained in a separate folder initialed and franked by the publisher. This beautiful and ambitious project saw its conception during Maillol's and Count Kessler's trip to Greece and Italy in 1908 and was intended as something of a parallel companion project to the masterful Cranach Press ECLOGAE & GEORGICA (1929). Maillol made the first woodcut from his drawings shortly after their return, and a few others in following years, but Kessler was unable to proceed further with the project. Philippe Gonin approached Maillol in 1937, proposing that he resume work on the project, "and the last block was delivered to the publisher in September, 1944, shortly before the artist's death. Most of the cuts were executed by craftsmen after Maillol's drawings on the block, since at that time his eyes were not strong enough for the cutting" - ARTIST & THE BOOK. The number of copies of the portfolio is not explicitly stated, but the edition is frequently reported as being only one hundred copies. ARTIST & THE BOOK 175. MONOD 11339. REWALD 156-61.

        A remarkable political letter discussing FDR’s Court-Packing plan, the rift between the Missouri Governor and Truman’s mentor Kansas City Boss Pendergast which led to his downfall, and the setting up of “a little studying in probabilities,” Truman’s code for a poker game

      Typed Letter Signed “Harry S Truman,” one page, 8” x 10.5”. United States Senate, Washington, D.C., July 29, 1937. To John W. Snyder, Manager, Reconstruction Finance Corporation. Later his Secretary of the Treasury, Snyder was a close friend of Truman since 1928; they served together in the U.S. Army Reserves after World War I. Tiny staple holes in upper left corner. Four file holes at top edge. Fine condition. In full, “Appreciate most highly yours of the Twenty Seventh, sending me the clippings from the Star-Times about O’Malley and the Fort Myer Horse Troop. I am glad a compromise was reached between the Governor and Mr. Pendergast because I didn’t want to see them fall out. I think you are right that the Governor could very easily review the Command and Staff Course on Tactics. There is no doubt in my mind but what he is using Navy tactics all the way through. “I thought yesterday we were going to get an early adjournment, but Barkley, Sam Rayburn and Bankhead called on the President yesterday, and Barkley told the Press we were going to stay here until we were through. Of course I think we are going to have a new Court fight and it looks now as if we will be here all the rest of the summer. “However, if I can get away I had hoped that you and Eddie McKim could call on Harry Vaughn at Fort Riley one of the week-ends while there and probably do a little studying in probabilities. That is absolutely essential you know for a Field Artilleryman’s education. Tell Jake hello, and I do hope we will get through in the next two weeks.” Senator Truman mentions various events in this letter: the rift between Missouri Gov. Lloyd Stark and Kansas City Democratic Boss, and Truman’s mentor, Tom Pendergast; President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Court-Packing plan; setting up a poker game (called “a little studying in probabilities” by Truman) at a Army Reserves weekend at Fort Riley. Missouri’s new Democratic Governor Lloyd Stark had the support of Kansas City Boss Tom Pendergast when he ran for Governor in 1936. It was Pendergast who had asked Truman to run for the U.S. Senate in 1934. Pendergast had so much political power in Missouri that the Governor’s Mansion has been dubbed “Uncle Tom’s Cabin.” In the 1936 election, Boss Pendergast’s men were more openly corrupt than usual. With investigations looming, Stark turned against Pendergast, prompting federal investigations and the pulling of federal funds from Pendergast’s control. The Roosevelt administration withdrew its patronage from Pendergast and shifted it to the Governor. If a compromise between Stark and Pendergast had been reached, as noted by Truman, it was temporary. In 1939, Pendergast was convicted of income tax evasion. In 1940, Stark unsuccessfully challenged Truman in the Senate Democratic primary. Pendergast served 15 months in the federal penitentiary at Leavenworth. The former Boss of Kansas City died on January 26, 1945, six days after Truman was inaugurated Vice President. The new V.P. shocked many when he attended Pendergast’s funeral; he was the only elected official there. Truman answered critics: “He was always my friend and I have always been his.” On February 5, 1937, President Franklin D. Roosevelt proposed the Judiciary Reorganization Bill of 1937, commonly referred to as FDR’s Court-Packing plan. Its central and most controversial provision gave the President the power to appoint an additional Associate Justice to the U.S. Supreme Court, up to six, for every sitting member over the age of 70 years 6 months. Since President Roosevelt did not consult leaders in the House of Representatives before proposing his judiciary plan, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Hatton Sumners refused to endorse the bill and kept it in committee. The Administration then arranged for the bill to be first taken up in the Senate. On June 14, 1937, the Senate Judiciary Committee reported the bill to the Senate adversely calling FDR’s plan "a needless, futile and utterly dangerous abandonment of constitutional principle... without precedent or justification." The bill was entrusted to Senate Majority Leader Joe Robinson to guide it through the Senate. While trying to line up supporters, Robinson worked to find a compromise which would be favored by Democrats opposed to packing the Supreme Court. A front page story in the Friday, July 2, 1937 “Washington Post” headlined: “Senate to Get New Bill on Court Today / Robinson to Offer New Deal Compromise for Reform. / Act Holds Judiciary to 9; Age Replacements Restricted.” Tense omens of filibuster brought a defiant introduction from Senate Majority Leader Joseph T. Robinson as the original six-judge increase was immediately subordinated, and a one-judge-a-year substitute advanced to supplant it. ‘It is my intention,’ Robinson announced, ‘to keep this bill before the Senate until it is disposed of, making reasonable allowance for emergency measures’ … Anticipating a filibuster, Robinson is prepared to keep the Senate continuously on this day’s business until the bill is passed, defeated or sidetracked.” The intense floor debate led by Sen. Robinson continued. On Monday, July 12th, he complained of discomfort and chest pains. On Tuesday, he rested at home. On Wednesday morning, July 14, 1937, Senate Majority Leader Joseph Robinson was found dead of a heart attack in his Capitol Hill apartment, the “Congressional Record” at his side. On July 21, 1937, Kentucky Senator Alben W. Barkley defeated Mississippi Senator Pat Harrison 38-37 to succeed the late Joseph T. Robinson as Senate Majority Leader. After the Roosevelt landslide victory in 1936, there were 76 Democrats in the Senate. Barkley was FDR’s candidate. On July 22, 1937, the Senate voted 70–20 to return the judicial reform bill to the Judiciary Committee with explicit instructions to strip it of its court-packing provisions. Truman was one of just 18 Democrats to vote against recommitting the bill which eventually died in committee. The “Los Angeles Times” printed a United Press story on July 29, 1937, the day Sen. Truman wrote this letter, in a report datelined Washington, July 28: “In the face of a growing surge toward early adjournment, President Roosevelt and Congressional leaders tonight agreed to fight for enactment of a five-point legislative program before the legislators go home … Those who met with the Chief Executive were Senate Majority Leader Barkley, Speaker of the House Bankhead and House Majority Leader Rayburn. Barkley said the possibility of recessing Congress until October … was discussed but that there was no decision … ‘Tentative plans’ have been made to take up the revised court bill early next week, he added…” On August 26, 1937, an amended version of the Judiciary Reorganization Bill which, among other items, did not include a provision to increase the number of Supreme Court members was reluctantly signed into law by President Roosevelt who admitted that his original bill was “pretty drastic” and that the bill he signed was a “tiny step in the right direction.” Eddie McKim served under Capt. Harry S. Truman, Battery D, 129th Field Artillery Regiment from 1917-1919, and, subsequently in the U.S. Army Reserve Corps. He was Administrative Assistant to John Snyder when he was Federal Loan Administrator (1945) and was President Truman’s Senior Administrative Assistant (1945). Harry H. Vaughan had served in the same Field Artillery Regiment with Captain Truman in World War I, and also with him in the Army Reserves. Jake was James K. Vardaman, Jr. son and namesake of the late Mississippi Governor and U.S. Senator, served in both the Field Artillery and the Army Reserves with Truman who later appointed him his first Naval Aide to the President (1945-1946). The “little studying in probabilities … absolutely essential … for a Field Artilleryman’s education,” was Truman’s code word for playing poker. Truman loved playing poker and he continued to do so, even when he was President. In fact, Eddie McKim had set up a poker game in the late afternoon in a room at Washington’s Statler Hotel when he received a message that Vice President Truman would soon be there, but first he had to return a telephone call from the White House. While waiting, McKim turned on the radio and heard that President Roosevelt had died in Warm Springs, Georgia. It was April 12, 1945. The game was not cancelled, just postponed until May. Accompanied by Snyder’s retained unsigned carbon copy, on lightweight pink paper, of his August 2, 1937, letter to Senator Truman. In part, “I had hoped that you would be able to get away, so that we could both attend, but after Congress decided to spend the summer in Washington, I dropped the matter. From all indications, the two weeks’ training beginning August 15th are going to be the most interesting the Reserve Corps has ever had the opportunity to take part in. If I can arrange the matter satisfactorily, I may weaken and go yet … By all means plan to spend the week-end of August 21st and 22nd at Fort Riley, if you are in Missouri, as I am sure we shall arrange a rendezvous of some kind, whether I go to camp or not.” The rendezvous was for “a little studying in probabilities, i.e. playing poker.
